Bridges close
The old Seven Mile
Bridge is closing to auto traf-
fic next week as inspections
begin in anticipation of
future renovations, and the
Long Key Bridge has already
closed for the next six
months so the state can
install 20 extended fishing
stands. See stories, Page 8.

Another fatality
A Key Largo man dies in
a North Key Largo auto
crash, becoming the eighth
traffic fatality of the year
south of Florida City. See
story, Page 9.

Hostel to close?
A Key West youth hostel
popular with visitors from
around the nation - and the
world - could go the way
of so many other accommo-
dations, as the owners want
to covert it into condos. See
story, Page 15.

Houses on tour
The Marathon Garden
Club has its big annual
house tour Saturday, and
among the homes on the pro-
gram is Monroe County's
newest oceanfront mansion.

A state plan to speed hurri-
cane evacuation with an emer-
gency-only lane through Key
Largo could receive a bumpy
reception at a March 12 meet-
ing.
The state Department of
Transportation has crafted a pro-
posal to pave large sections of
the northbound road shoulder of
U.S. 1 through Key Largo,
ostensibly to speed hurricane
evacuation and improve "driver
safety."
The Island of Key Largo
Federation of Homeowner
Associations has condemned
what it views as a fifth lane on
U.S. 1.
Several DOT officials have
agreed to attend the 7:30 p.m.
March 12 informational session

Bruce Ritson of Key West is
circulating petitions he hopes will
create a mechanism for recalling
commissioners.


"People are fed up with this
band of three," Ritson said
Tuesday, referring to Mayor
Sonny McCoy and commission-
ers Mario Di Gennaro and Sylvia
Murphy. "There is no method of
recalling any county officers


because we are not a charter
county. There are no provisions
in the code of ordinances."
Ritson knows he's got a legal
quagmire ahead as far as the actu-
al process of creating a recall
process, but said he also knows
he has a large number of people
that support the idea.

FIRM continues fight


Three meetings
next week focus
on retaining rates
By PAMELA J. SUAREZ
Keynoter Contributor

A local grassroots organiza-
tion has scheduled a series of
town-hall meetings throughout
the Keys to discuss windstorm


insurance premiums, and it's a
sure bet that Arline Wallace will
be at the Marathon meeting front
and center.
Although it's been more than
two years since the day she
received "that horrible bill" for
her Marathon home's windstorm
policy, the details are still very
fresh in her mind - and she's
still outraged.


Wallace recalls seeing but not
believing the papers she held in
her hands. She remembers how
she and her husband pored over
the premium notice in disbelief
and struggled to comprehend the
numbers.
"Our premium went from
$7,000 a year to $22,000, just
like that." Wallace said. "And
the total amount was due in 30

'No net loss' hotly debated


By ALYSON CREAN
acrean@keynoter.coln

"No net loss." the lost catch
phrase in an ordinance aimed at
preserving the working water-
front in the Keys, might have
gone a long way to ensure Keys
shoreline doesn't become just a
conglomeration of condos and
high-end hotels.
At least former Planning
Commissioner Sherry Popham
thought it would.
The County Commission in
September passed an ordinance to
preserve the working waterfront
after two years of drafting, rewrit-
ing and reworking. One of the
more controversial concepts was
a policy that assured "no net loss"
of existing uses such as fish hous-
es, staples of the Keys economy.
The September version of the
ordinance defined no net loss
saying "a loss of working water-
front in one geographic area must
be balanced by gain in another."
Popham. who quit the county
Planning Commission Feb. 5, a
day after the County Commission
approved the ordinance with "no
net loss" removed from its lan-
guage, said no net loss is "the
only language that was powerful
enough to ensure the retention of
what we have deemed most
important: The preservation of
what little recreational and com-


mercial access still remains in the
Keys."
Popham, who with her hus-
band Bruce owns the Marathon
Boat Yard, had been a driving
force behind drafting the preser-
vation ordinance. She resigned
her appointed planning position
after the County Commission
passed the ordinance with amend-
ments suggested by attorneys for
two Stock Island waterfront prop-
erty owners. Those amendments
included removing "no net loss."
Attorney Jerry Coleman, who
represents Robbie Reckwerdt,
owner of Robbie's Marina on
Stock Island, called no net loss
unsupportablee."
"The touted policy was not an
economically viable regulatory
option for Safe Harbor's com-
mercial waterfront property." he
wrote in a commentary he distrib-
uted after the Feb. 4 County
Commission meeting.
Key West developer Ed Swift
weighed in with a letter shortly
after Popham resigned, calling no
net loss "a musical-chairs land
use where the last landowner to
provide a fish house and docks"
would have to remain so.
"If the county wants to save a
place for commercial fishermen
forever," Swift wrote. "they
should buy land and create a fish-


ing park and docks...."
In fact, the concept has been
under fire throughout the process.
In an April e-mail to a Florida
International University planner
who helped develop a study of
Monroe's waterfront, county
Senior Marine Planner Rich
Jones noted there was some mis-
understanding of the concept.
"Bruce Popham wants 100
percent no net loss," Jones wrote.
"I've explained to all of them that
the ordinance currently would
restrict 50 percent working
waterfront and provides the
incentive to go 30 percent or
more above the 100 percent.
intensity limit.... They didn't real-
ize that we already have language
to transfer to another site, pay
into a mitigation fund, go from
one working waterfront to anoth-
er, etc. They only see the 50 per-
cent restriction."
Bruce Popham started the
county on its journey to preserv-
ing the working waterfront back
in 2004.
"We have a limited working
waterfront." he said at the time,
"and the county is letting it just
disappear."
The working-waterfront ordi-
nance has now been transmitted
to DCA for a second perusal.
DCA sent the first draft of it back
to the county in December with
several objections.


Hutton: It's a state issue


PETITION / From I

"When I heard that, I started
laughing," Commissioner Sylvia
Murphy said. "I envision us
spending nine tenths of our time
being recalled."
"Who's going to. pay for a
recall?" McCoy asked. "It can't
be taken frivolously."
"I'd be glad to sign a peti-
tion," Di Gennaro said. "If the
public doesn't want you, you
shouldn't be there."
"I certainly wouldn't have a
problem signing off on that,"
Commissioner George Neugent
said. "In light of our four-year
terms, I side with the voters. You
should be able to have some sort
of' redress.
Even if Ritson gets the thou-
sands of signatures he's expect-
ing, it's not clear they would (do
much good, however. Assistant


Supervisor of Elections Joyce
.Griffin says her office cannot
just put the question on the bal-
lot.
"There is no process in elec-
tion law to get it on the ballot,"
she said. "We get our directions
from the County Commission."
County Attorney Suzanne
Hutton said that even if Ritson
brought a stack of signatures in,
she's not sure the County
Commission could do anything
about them.
"1 think that his only avenue
to pursue a recall is either to pur-
sue having the Legislature make
us a charter county or have the
Legislature create a mechanism
for recall for non-charter coun-
ties," she said.
Either way, she says, he'll
likely have to lake the issue to
Tallahassee.
Rilson is no stranger to grass-
roots politics.


He was the driving force
behind getting a referendum
added to the Key West ballot last
year requiring voter approval of
annexation or acquisition of land
by the city of Key West. voters
passed that measure overwhelm-
ingly.
Ritson said he's also filling
out necessary paperwork to start
a political action committee.
McCoy, Murphy and Spehar
are up for election in November,
and Ritson says a PAC endorse-
menl would matter.
The so-called gang of three,
however, is made up of Di
Gcnnaro, McCoy and Spehar: Di
Gennaro is not up election this
year.
Over the past several months,
the three have approved a num-
ber of controversial issues, often
going against public opinion and
even staff recommendations in
favor of private interests.

warnings against swimming:

Due to an editing error,
a headline in Saturday's
edition incorrectly stated
the time frame when Bruce
and Sherry Popham nego-
tiated to sell their
Marathon Boat Yard to
Cay Clubs. Sherry Popham
was not on the county
Planning Commission at
the time.
Due to incorrect infor-
mation provided, Satur-
day's edition incorrectly
stated who's president of
the Zonta Club of Mara-
thon. It's Lolly Siemon.
Due to an editing error,
a Saturday business story
had incorrect information
about Islamorada's afford-
able-housing fees. The vil-
lage does require fees or
construction of affordable
housing when new devel-
opment is approved.

"There was no way in this
world we could pay that,"
Wallace continued. "We're

age in that kind of situation -
needless to say, we were about
crazy."
The Wallaces were not the

many other Monroe County

Windstorm premiums sky-
rocketed following the series
of devastating hurricanes that
impacted the state in 2004-05,
leaving many homeowners
with jaw-dropping bills dou-
bling or even tripling what
they had been the year before.
In response to those hikes.
area residents formed a grass-
roots organization called Fair
Insurance Rates in Monroe, or
FIRM, to represent themselves
and their neighbors in fighting
the increases at the state level

After reviewing documen-
tation compiled by FIRM,
Insurance Commissioner
Kevin McCarty agreed that the
proposed rates were excessive
and drastically reduced and
temporarily froze them, with
the freeze set to expire this
year on Dec. 31.
"It was a David and Goliath
fight, but we won it in 2006."
said FIRM's Colleen Repetto.
"It's going to be a never-end-
ing battle though, and it's
already time to do it all over
again. We've only got one
shot at it and we need to hurry
because [the 2008 legislative
session] starts on March 4."
To rally the troops. FIRM
will host a series of town-hall
meetings throughout the Keys
next week. The group, made
up entirely of volunteers, will
use the meetings to educate
local property owners about
what's at stake this legislative
session.
"I have seen Citizens' pro-
posed rate increase for 2009
and it's not pretty. We need
people to join FIRM because
there's strength in numbers in

State Rep. Ron Saunders
agreed Keys residents should
band together under the aus-

"You can compare it to a

to make sure none of the good
we've already done gets
undone.
"And on offense, let's see if
we can get rates even lower. I
believe we can."
Saunders said that although
he has not seen Citizens' pro-
posed rates for 2009, he has
heard rumors the carrier will
seek a rate increase. He said
the burden would be on the
insurance industry "to prove
to us that they're basing their
rates on reality and not fairy-
tale projections."
He pointed out that in the
Keys, the vast majority of
property damage in storms
comes not from wind but from
flooding, so he contends rate
hikes are not merited.
"In fact, I see justification
for lowering the rates,"
Saunders said. "It's true that
the insurance lobby is very
powerful, but this is an elec-
tion year and any legislator
that supports the insurers'
position will certainly draw a
lot of negative attention."

Residents question 'resurfacing project'


DOT / From 1

concerns about the plan, agreed
to co-sponsor the meeting with
the homeowner association.
"It's not just residents but
business people as well," said
Fred Nickerson, a community
activist who lives in Port Largo.
"We really haven't found any-
body in favor of it."
Tavernier resident John
Hammerstrom said the project
was not discussed with county
officials at a December review


of DOT projects in Monroe
County. and has been listed as a
"resurfacing project" in DOT
records.
"The fifth lane is hidden from
the public by labeling it resurfac-
ing. How can the paving of a pre-
viously unpaved area be called
resurfacing?" Hanmmerstrom said
in a 2,200-word report opposing
the plan. "One can only resurface
something that has been sur-
faced."
Project costs have been esti-
mated at $21 million.
Hammerstrom cited meetings

'GUARDED TO CRITICAL': Volunteers on Tuesday continued
to keep 24-hour watch on a pygmy sperm whale that
stranded near Islamorada Saturday. The whale is male,
weighing about a half-ton. His condition Tuesday was
'guarded to critical' but relatively stable, said a

Rehabilitation efforts are underway in Key Largo.

dating back to 2003 with state
officials on the plan, which
apparently grew out of concerns
over local evacuation times.
Building permits in Monroe
County are limited by the need
to maintain pre-hurricane evacu-

could hasten that evacuation.
By how much, however,
remains a topic of considerable
disagreement.

Keys Opinion


ROGO ruling a shot

heard 'round the city

The headline in Saturday's Keynoter was clever: "ROGO is a
no-go."
By itself, that's a real bullhorn call for attention., especially
given the long and tortured history of development controls
here in the Keys.
Further examination'of Circuit Court Judge Wayne Miller's
ruling - in a case involving the Southernmost Guesthouse -
provides even more amps for alarm bells.
The backdrop is a long-running battle by the owners of the
Southernmost House to change the use of their property, which
was a private residence before being converted to a small hotel
and museum.
Efforts mounted last year to open the historic home as a
restaurant ran afoul of neighbors amid concerns about adequate
parking. The Key West Planning Commission has postponed
action on that request multiple times.
In the meantime, efforts to obtain transient rental licenses and
re-open the property as a guesthouse have been stymied by the
lack of available rate-of-growth-ordinance permits in the city
- and the expense of buying both transient licenses and
ROGO permits.
Starting back in 1990, city ordinances established a link
between ROGO and transient licenses under the argument that
transient use consumed a part of the city's housing stock.
Last week's ruling by Miller now severs that link by focusing
on the connection between ROGO permits and hurricane evac-
uation times, in particular a 2002 city resolution that extended
the permit allocation process.
Miller ruled that the hurricane evacuation link expired in
April 2002, which in effect severs the linkage between ROGO
and transient licenses.
That may come as a shock to groups like Last Stand, which
has filed lawsuits against the city over issuance of transient
licenses and transfers. Indeed, Saturday's Keynoter also report-
ed on Last Stand's recent suit trying to prevent the city from
transferring transient licenses from the former Hampton Inn.
Attorneys representing Last Stand and Hampton Inn's devel-
oper showed up last .Thursday for a Planning Commission
meeting where the battle was to be joined - again.
Instead, the developer's attorney asked the item be pulled
from the agenda.
So battle lines may have shifted a bit with Miller's ruling, but
we predict further skirmishes, including the possibility that Last
Stand or even the city may file an appeal to Miller's ruling.
In the meantime, the Ramos family has already expanded the
Southernmost Guesthouse use to 14 rooms.
But don't expect this to be the end of this ongoing saga.

Support FIRM, which volunteers for all the Keys


EDITOR:
For all of us who have enjoyed lower wind-
storm insurance rates in 2007 and 2008, get ready
to go back to the high rates of 2006. The lower
rates expire on Dec. 31. Fair Insurance Rates in
Monroe has our support to continue to fight for us.
FIRM volunteer representatives need dona-
tions to have a full-time presence in Tallahassee
this March. April and May. The 2008 state leg-
islative session is the only one before Citizens
Property Insurance Cqrp.'s proposed higher rates
take effect.
FIRM's mission is to once again fight to keep
our lower rates and to change the use-and-file law
permanently. Just as a reminder, the use-and-file
law allows insurance companies to bill whatever
rate they choose and then file the rate with the
insurance commissioner for approval or rejection.
But even if the rate is rejected, it's the law that
you still have to pay the original bill to keep your
coverage. Then you can wait and hope for an
adjustment later.
So for everyone whose annual windstorm
insurance premiums went from, for example
$1,500 a year to $9,000 or higher in 2006, even
though the rate had not been approved by the
insurance commission, get out your checkbooks
because Jan. 1. 2009, is not far away.


And for those of us who paid off our mort-
gages or have chosen not to carry windstorm
insurance, keep in mind if we choose to sell our
homes, our potential buyer will probably need a
mortgage. If we can't keep our windstorm insur-
ance rates low, our potential buyer may walk
away from the deal when he or she sees one
annual insurance premium of $9,000 or more. As
sellers, we may have to continue to lower the sale
price to attract a buyer for more reasons than the
real estate market.
FIRM proved that Monroe County has the
lowest windstorm claims in the state, yet the
highest premiums. Just because Monroe County's
lower claims are proven statistics doesn't mean
that Citizens won't raise our rates when the
opportunity arises on Jan. 1, 2009.
If 200 people in the Lower Keys and Key
West, 199 people in the Middle Keys (I already
donated) and 200 people in the Upper Keys each
donated $100 to FIRM, this volunteer organiza-
tion would be able to keep our advocates in
Tallahassee for the whole 2008 legislative session
and be more effective in our fight. Remember,
they give their time for free.

Studios of Key West provide a superb backdrop


EDITOR:
My time in Key West was one the most pro-
ductive and rewarding experiences in my career
as an artist. To have the opportunity and given
the support to work in such a fecund setting was
more than I had anticipated. Eric Holowacz and
the staff at The Studios of Key West were excep-
tionally receptive and supportive. They were
instantly friends.
I was very flattered to be invited as the inau-
gural artist in residence in conjunction with my
exhibition. To have my photographs of southern
writers coordinated with one of the most renown
literary conferences was fantastic, and the prints
looked great in the studio's exhibition hall.
I was amazed how much support and interest
there is in the community considering the size of
Key West. The workshop I gave on the evolution
of lighting in art was also very well received in
the studio's exhibition hall. It is very fulfilling to
have the chance to share and discuss one's ideas
and thoughts with others.
The most significant aspect of my residency
was the project that unfolded spontaneously. Like
friends and dogs, the best things often come
unexpectedly.
Eric and I established a rapport the first time
we spoke in October. 1 had a project under way
that I thought to continue and Eric suggested
extending the writer's portraits. Once 1 arrived
and began shooting photos, the ideas moved in a
divergent direction. The work turned into a por-
trait of my time in Key West, of the people 1 met
in my daily encounters. The subjects were invit-
ed to The Studios of Key West apartment and
every single new portrait was taken on site. It is
a portfolio of the people who were there at that
moment and how I saw them as a photographer.


Never have I done such a substantial amount
of work in such a short period of time. Certainly
it is large enough for another exhibition and pos-
sibly a book, as well. This could only have
occurred with Eric's involvement, the great staff
and unique surroundings. This is what an artist in
residence should be, to be invited in to a commu-
nity and encouraged to do work that could only
happen in that setting and environment.
The visiting artist program the Studios of Key
West began in 2008 is simply outstanding. Artist-
in-residency programs are often solitary retreats.
My darkroom provides me with an abundance of
quiet solitude. My Key West residency filled me
with energy and new ideas.

Vote on city's future would end issue


EDITOR:
Unincorporation?
At the untelevised Marathon City
Council meeting Jan. 8, 1 recommended
that the City Council support putting the
unincorporation referendum on the
November ballot.
Not because I believe the majority of
citizens will vote in favor. Instead, 1
believe they are in favor of Marathon
continuing, despite many disappoint-
ments with the performance of our coun-
cil and city bureaucracy over the years.
Not because I believe the citizens
would be served as well by the county at
a lower cost. All evidence indicates the
county cannot provide the level of service
we have become accustomed to. Nor
does its village rate indicate any poten-
tial tax savings for Marathon's citizens.
Not because I believe the accusations
and rumors peddled by a small but vocif-
erous minority of residents over the past
three years. They only get attention
because they are levied under the umbrel-
la of an unincorporation movement.
Rather, I believe that until we have a
referendum, these accusations and rumors
will continue to lurk in the background,
poisoning the atmosphere and putting our
representatives and officials on the defen-
sive against faceless accusers. A referen-
dum will permanently put this issue
behind us all, so we can focus on the
future, which is already full of chal-
lenges.
The decision to put that referendum on
the ballot does not rest exclusively with
state Rep. Ron Saunders. The city attor-
ney pointed out that the Marathon City
Council has their own right to put a refer-
endurm on the ballot (we don't need coun-


ty or state permission). Furthermore,
whether they want us or not, Monroe
county could hardly refuse to take us
back if we were to dissolve the city. So
letting the county commissioners decide
whether Marathon citizens vote on this
subject is unnecessary and completely
inappropriate.
No, this is a Marathon City Council
decision, a political decision. Instead of
regularly complaining about the faceless,
undefended accusations and rumors,
which will get them nowhere, councilors
should welcome the opportunity to put
the issue on the November ballot, which
should see the largest turnout of voters in
our (short) history.
Whether the measure is binding or
nonbinding, its defeat will clear the air
and allow us all to move forw\ ard.
Allowing this.issue to continue to fester
will get us nowhere.
Fred Endemann
Marathon

County not way to go
EDITOR:
In response to Sally Buehler's peti-
tion to dissolve the city of Marathon. I
think her effort is ill conceived and will
not warrant my support. I am 82 years
old and spent half of my adult life in
politics and public office before retiring
in Marathon. In my opinion. 1 believe
our city has made great strides in a rela-
tively short time. 1 want to see progress
continue, and have little faith in our
present, county elected officials to gov-
ern effectively.

progress has been made.
It is satisfying to see that civic pride
by merchants works without resorting to
drafting ordinances and starting costly
legal battles. Although we are also aware
that there are two businesses that have
not yet gone along with the community
spirit, it is wonderful to see our business
community stand tall and honor the stan-
dards held by the community at large.
We sincerely appreciate the coopera-
tion from everyone that was involved.

It's a trend; no,


it's an epidemic


In the news business, there are
certain benchmarks. If something
happens once, it's a story. If some-
thing happens twice, it's a trend. If
something happens a third time, it's
an epidemic.
Folks, we're in the midst of a cou-
ple epidemics here. The latest is
critter-on-fake-critter violence and
just animal weirdness at large.
It's true. We now have would-be
cannibalism going on in our
Reptilian-American community. It
happened Saturday in Greensboro,
N.C., but since it involved an igua-
na and a faux lizard, the
Keys can tangentially
claim it as our own.
Seems Iggy the iguana
was lying around with
owner Brenda Byrum
when, in a fit of either
rage or stupidity, he just
up and ate the rubber
lizard. Just slurped it up.
Dr. Stacey Chappell
saved the day when he
used an endoscope to
free said rubber lizard Larry
from the iguana's Keynot
innards. And according
to TV station WFMY in
North Carolina's triangle area, he
says it's common - he forced vom-
iting on 25 animals last month.
Enjoy your lunch.
Back in September, a Key West
boxer named P.J. went and ate a
rubber duck. To the rescue was
Marathon Veterinary Clinic owner
Doug Mader, who extracted the
duck. It was a serious situation
because the sham duck could have
blocked P.J.'s stomach parts.
But it turned out OK, except for
other dogs laughing at P.J. because
he had to wear one of those neck
cones for a while. There's just
something funny about a dog in a
neck cone though nothing funny
about a dog downing a duck. Unless
it has a happy ending. Which this
did.
The critter-on-fake-critter violence
follows some other disturbing news
in the animal kingdom, all well doc-
umented on these pages.
We still have 9-pound rats terror-
izing Grassy Key. During a recent
cold spell, we had iguanas falling

from trees in suspended animation
due to the effect on their bodies.
And of course, we had that whale
die off Big Pine awhile back and
towed way out to sea to decompose
or sink, only to be brought back by
the currents and rot for a few
months on the bayside of Little
Duck Key (a few of our headlines:
"Dead sperm whale will be there for
awhile," "Keys bid farewhale").
Now we move to the other epi-
demic because folks, this is getting
out of hand. I'm talking about the
Southernmost Point becoming some
sort of beacon for those
Swho inexplicably travel
the length of the country
in the name of charity.
First few times, it was
pretty cool. and charity is
Always a good thing. But
now, there's no novelty
to it: it's more common
than our County
Commission making
" another bad decision.
____ We've recently run
Kahn these stories (and these
nr Editor are just the ones I can
remember off the top of
my head)
* Guy walks from Bellingham,
Wash., to Key West to raise money
for charity.
* Guy bicycles from Maine to
Key West to raise money for chari-
ty.
* Two guys bicycle to Key West
from Alaska to raise money for
charity -simultaneously, without
each knowing of the other.
* Guy skateboards from Key
West to wherever to raise money for
charity.
* Guy bicycles backward from
Key West to wherever to make the
point medical pot is smoking good-
ness (or gets you stoned, because
he's riding a bicycle backward).
* Guy pogo-sticks from Key West
to Venus to raise money for charity
(OK, 1 made that last one up. but
you know it's inevitable if Spacely
Sprockets signs on).
This has got to stop. the animal
oddness and the walk-the-country
thing. Because it makes for some
repetitive stories in these pages
which, of course, can be epidemic.

Fishing bridge closes for 6 months


20 platforms
being built
on old span
By KEVIN WADLOW
Senior Staff Writer
kwadlow@keynoter.com


An improvement project
now under way will keep the
old Long Key Bridge closed to
public access for most of 2008.
Work to build new fishing
platforms on the old Flagler
railroad span started last week,
say officials with the Office of
Greenways and Trails in the
state Department of
Environmental Protection.
No fishing, hiking or bicy-
cling will be allowed on the
bridge during construction,
estimated to last six to nine
months.
When complete, the Long
Key Historic Fishing Bridge
will sport 20 fishing platforms
that extend over the water like
those on the nearby Tom's
Harbor Cut Bridge, which is
open to fishing.


A similar project at the
Tom's Harbor Channel Bridge
is expected to finish within
weeks, which will open that
span to access.
The old Florida East Coast
Railway bridges from the
1900s now are managed as part
of the Florida Keys Overseas
Heritage Trail, open to hikers
and bicyclists. The new plat-
forms are designed to give
anglers a place to fish while
keeping the bridge passable for
walking and biking.
"The idea came from the
fishing catwalks like those on
[the] Card Sound Bridge, and
that they used to have on the
old Long Key Bridge," local
Greenways and Trails manager
Debra Stucki. "There are simi-
lar platforms on piers at a Key
Biscayne park but these may be
the only platforms on bridges."
Several old bridges within
driving distance - Channel 2,
Channel 5 and the Seven Mile
- remain open to fishing, in
addition to Tom's Harbor Cut.
Improvements to the bridges


have been in planning stages
for more than a decade. A mas-
ter plan was completed in
2001.
Eighteen Keys bridges are
part of the Greenways project.


Five spans in the Lower Keys
already have been retrofitted
for improved use by fishermen
and others. Those bridges tend
to be wider than the Middle
Keys bridges, and do not need


the 8-by-10-foot platforms to
keep an open pathway.
Each platform rests on four
6,000-pound steel beams and a
double layer of high-grade con-
crete and rebar.


Old Seven Mile closes next week


Foot traffic
will still be
allowed on span

micciarthy@ i keynolter.coi n

If it has to happen, Pigeon
Key Foundation Executive
Director Jess Shows says the
island is as ready as it will ever
be for the old Seven Mile Bridge
to shut down.

Transportation bridge engineer
Frank Guyamier informed
Shows and Assistant Monroe
County Engineer Judith Clarke,
among others, of the decision in
a Monday e-mail.

Guvamier said in the e-mail
the bridge would close March 4,
though Shows said it will be to
vehicular traffic only.
"1 believe that if it had to get
shut down, then we are in a posi-
tion that we are ready for it," he
said.
Island staff recently had a
new generator installed, com-
pleted work on dockage
destroyed by hurricanes, painted
the buildings and removed a lot
of trash from the island.
"We finally got all this old
junk off the island," Shows said.
"We're finally breathing again:
had the bridge been closed, it
wouldn't have allowed us to get
all this done in a timely manner."
The bridge's closing will
mean the official retirement of
"Henry," a 1978 postal truck
remade to look like a train,
which was used to take visitors
to the island. Shows said Henry
has been out of commission
since mid-December, ivhen
Pigeon Key began offering ferry
service from the Knights Key
campground.
The 2.2-mile span leading to
Pigeon Key is a popular destina-
tion for tourists and locals alike.
The bridge is crawling with
walkers, bikers and anglers most
days.
DOT announced at a
December 2007 meeting that


work on the bridge would be put
off at least a year, as Monroe
County was unable to secure a
$17 million loan through the
state infrastructure bank. Total
costs for the repair will be $34
million, of which the County
Commission voted to fund half.
Shows said work renovation
of the old span was slated to
begin July 1 of this year had the
loan been awarded. The state
ranks projects and loans are
doled out according to that sys-
tem.
"It's the ranking criteria of
the projects and what they feel is
the most important in terms of
the overall highway system."
Clarke said, noting the county's
Current financial constraints
were not an issue in awarding
the funds.
Guyamier said at the time the
surface of the bridge would be
replaced with concrete structure
allowing one lane of traffic, a
bike path, a sidewalk and a dec-
orative railing. The base will be
left as is, he said.
Once the bridge is repaired,
the state Department of
Environmental Protection is pre-
pared to incorporate it up to and
including Pigeon Key itself into
the Overseas Heritage Trail.
Pigeon Key is on the National
Register of Historic Places. It
housed workers building Henry
Flagler's Florida East Coast
Railway in the 1900s.

Card Sound crash


kills Keys man


Death toll
is now eight
for year so far
By RYAN McCARTHY
rmccarthy@keynoter.com


A Key Largo man died
Sunday afternoon after losing
control of his car and colliding
with two other vehicles on Card
Sound Road in North Key Largo.
According to the Florida
Highway Patrol, 49-year-old
Steven Newbum was driving
south on Card Sound at 2 p.m.
and was attempting to enter the
north end of the S curve north of
Steamboat Creek Bridge.
Troopers say Newbum's 2006
Toyota slid out of control and
struck the front of a 2003 Jeep
driven by 53-year-old Gregory
Lewis of Boca Raton.
After colliding with Lewis,
Newbum's vehicle the left the
road and landed on the right front
hood of a 2000 Chrysler driven
by 37-year-old Nicole Lutkus-
Leach of Coral Springs. Lutkus-
Leach had swerved into the man-
groves to avoid colliding with
Lewis.
According to Monroe County
Sheriff's Office spokeswoman
Becky Herrin, Lewis and his pas-
senger, 52-year-old Alice Lewis,
were airlifted to Ryder Trauma
Center at Jackson Memorial
Hospital in Miami.
Troopers say the road was
closed for four hours for investi-
gation and Ocean Reef and


Miami-Dade Rescue worked
together to extricate both
Gregory and Alice Lewis from
their vehicle.
Newbum was not wearing a
seatbelt, troopers say.
He was the eighth traffic-relat-
ed fatality south of Florida City
in 2008 - and third on Card
Sound since Feb. 16. That day,
two men died in a single-auto
crash.
Just 12 minutes after
Newbum's crash, another acci-
dent took place at mile marker
76. Herrin said two vehicles col-
lided, injuring two people who
were then transported to
Mariners Hospital.

Monday crash
A 79-year-old Summerland
Key man has been charged with
violating the right of way after
driving from Caribbean Drive
onto U.S. I in front of two other
vehicles, troopers say.
Carl Dieckmann, driving a
1993 Nissan, reportedly pulled
out in front of vehicles driven by
Chris Wilson of Little Torch Key
and a Grayton Waite of Rhode
Island.
Wilson was traveling north on
U.S. 1 in a 1994 Chevrolet, while
Waite was driving south in a
2007 Saturn. Troopers say
Wilson struck the left side of
Dieckmann, who then spun and
struck Waite.
A report states all three driv-
ers, as well as Dieckmann's wife,
sustained injuries.

Senior Staff Writer
kwadlow@keynoter.com

A plan to move forward
with an affordable-housing
project at the former Wet Net
tennis in Islamorada goes
before the Islamorada Village
Council Thursday.
Tied up for nearly two years
by legal opposition from
neighbors of the site at mile
marker 81 on Upper
Matecumbe Key, the proposal
now is to build 36 residences in
18 duplexes arrayed around a
central open space.
Islamorada acquired the 4.4-
acre site as part of negotiations
to allow a development group
to convert an oceanfront trailer
park into an enclave of highly
priced single-family homes.
In exchange for selling the
Wet Net site to Islamorada for
a below-market price, Bill
Fountain's Realty Trust group


would receive its development
approvals.
At one point, Islamorada
officials eyed a development of
more than 60 units at the Wet
Net, the only remaining tract
suitable for affordable-housing
development in the village.
The Wet Net formerly was the

site of a tennis and swimming
club.
That number of units was
lowered to 54 and then 44 after
intense opposition by neigh-


bors, which included four resi-
dents with the money to wage a
legal fight.
Plaintiffs Michael
Swerdlow, Robert Rich. John
Willis and Morton Dunning did
not oppose the affordable-
housing concept, their attorney
told the Keynoter last year, but
were concerned about density,
traffic, parking, buffering and
other issues related to a larger
development.
The plaintiffs were involved
with drafting the site plan
being considered Thursday.
Islamorada is required by its
own comprehensive plan to
show progress on aflfordable-
liousing issues.
At its 5:30 p.m. Thursday
meeting at the Islamorada Fire
Station at mile-narker S1.8. the
Village Council also will con-
sider other development
approvals, and hear an appeal
of an order to remove an unper-
mitted tiki hut at the Island
Grill.
The council also is slated to
consider bids for the marina
bathroom pavilion and commu-
nity center, both projects local-
ed at Founders Park.

Keys cops seek


Puerto Rico cars


By ALYSON CREAN
acrean(' keynoter.com


It may seem odd that the
Monroe County Sheriff's Office
is looking to lease cars in Puerto
Rico, but the county's partner-
ship in a federal program helps
bring money to the Keys for law
enforcement, Sheriff's Office
spokeswoman Becky Herrin
says.
A request for quotes on costs
for car rental in Puerto Rico is
posted on the Sheriff's Office
Web site. The posting, which
closes March 14, is looking for
vehicles to be used in the federal
High Intensity Drug Trafficking
Area program, H1DTA. based in
Puerto Rico.
The program started in 1988
under then-President George
Bush. according to Sheriff's
Office general counsel Mark
Willis. when he established the
Office of National Drug Control
Policy. That Cabinet-level office
created and oversees HITDA.
"In 1995, when HIDTA was
just getting started, Puerto Rico
and the Virgin Islands weren't
doing that well," said Willis.
"There was a danger they would
lose grant funding if they didn't
do the organizational tasks
required before a certain dead-
line."
At that time, he said, the


South Florida HIDTA, which
included Monroe County law
enforcement, had been very suc-
cessful in some high-profile
cases involving major drug traf-
ficking. So the feds asked the
Sheriff's Office to help out.
"It was intended to be a cou-
ple of years thing," Willis said.
But he said it's worked well, and
Monroe County has continued to
help with tasks such as seeking a
good agreement for car leases.
Herrin said the best part of the
deal is that participation in the
program costs the county taxpay-
ers nothing but brings in big
rewards.
"We've had several fairly
major checks from our participa-
tion" in HIDTA. she said,
"including the $25 million that
came in the '90s and more
recently another $6 million."
"If we are involved in a case
with the federal government and
provide significant help." Willis
said, "then we can apply for a
share of federal money through
the federal asset sharing pro-
gram. We do this a lot."
Herrin said the cars will like-
ly be used for long-term drug-
trafficking investigations in
Puerto Rico, but the only actual
involvement by Monroe County
is to administer the lease.

County goes a


bit more green


By ALYSON CREAN
acrean@keynoter.com

Monroe County's fleet of
trucks and cars is about to go
green, according to Public Works
Director Dent Pierce.
In his monthly report to the
County Commission, last week
Pierce said his department is in
the process of switching to a
biodiesel blend of fuel.
"We're testing it out to see
how it works," he told the com-
mission during its Feb. 20 meet-
ing in Key Largo.
He said the blend is 20 percent
biodiesel and 80 percent petrole-
um fuel.
Commissioner Mario Di
Gennaro was concerned the envi-
ronmentally motivated move
might be too expensive, but
Pierce said the current load of the
special fuel actually costs 2 cents
less per gallon than regular diesel.
The county is following in the
carbon footsteps of the city of
Key West, which began using
biodiesel fuel in December.
The county's initial order was
1,000 gallons. It'll fuel engines
that run fairly often since biodiesel
tends to have a shorter shelf life
than standard petroleum fuel.
The county has 750 engines
that run on fuel, including cars,
generators, tractors and the like.
Using biodiesel and a catalyt-


ic converter will do a lot to cut air
pollution, according to Key West
General Services Director David
Fernandez.
"This combination will reduce
particulate matter emissions by
45 percent, carbon monoxide
emissions by 41 percent and total
hydrocarbon emissions by 65
percent," he said in December.
Biodiesel fuel has been avail-
able for delivery in the Keys only
for the past year or so, and the
change by local government is
part of a heightened environmen-
tal sensibility countywide.
Florida Keys GLEE - Green
Living and Energy Education -
has worked to educate local resi-
dents and governments since 2003.
That group will hold its third
annual Green Living and Energy
Education Expo in May. The
three-day event offers "practical
solutions for people to learn
about sustainable living, water
and energy conservation, renew-
able energy and green building so
they can lead healthier lifestyles.
reduce business costs, improve
their community and save energy.

says on its Web site.
The expo, which starts May 9
at Marathon High School, will
include vendors, seminars, edu-
cational presentations and more.

The deadline for submitting
applications for the position of
assistant Key West city manag-
er closed Friday, revealing two
more Key Westers interested in
the job: City Engineer Roland
Flowers and Public Works
Superintendent Bill Rieck.
"With my years of experi-
ence with the city, I have inter-

Flowers, who makes
$90.000 annually, has worked
in the city Engineering
Department for 23 years, start-
ing in June 1985. He was named
city engineer in 1994: director
of General Services, where he
worked in Engineering and
Public Works, in 2000: then city
engineer again in 2005.
Flowers was born and raised
in Key West.

Rieck makes $50.462 annu-

with the city since 2000 and
I've done everything from con-

pet.".
"I just thought it would be
cool to try," said Rieck, who's
also a Conch. "I love my job
and I care about what I do, and
most of my schooling has been

City calls emergency ROGO meeting


Session comes

By KYLE TEAL

To address Monroe County

Key West's rate-of-growth
ordinance expired in 2002, the
Key West City Commission


th A~,


has called a special meeting for
5:30 p.m. Friday at Old City

"Obviously, it hasn't
worked ... if people are still
complaining about develop-

Miller ruled ROGO sunset
six years ago.
The decision was made after
attorney Michael Halpern filed
four lawsuits and lobbied
before the Key West Planning
Board to allow Southernmost
House owner Matilde Ramos to
waive her requirement to
obtain ROGO allocations
before purchasing transient
licenses to operate a guest-
house.
The City Commission
allowed the home to become a
guesthouse in 2001 and, begin-
ning in 2004, RaImos operated
the 14-unit Upper Duval loca-
tion with only two licenses.
Halpern argued the other 12
licenses should be available
without having to purchase
ROGO allocations because the
two are separate from each
other.
Miller agreed, essentially
negating a resolution approved
by the City Commission in
2002 that extended ROGO. But

OPEN ENROLLMENT 2008-2009


The Montessori Elementary Charter School of Key West is accepting applications
for student enrollment (grades 1 through 5) for the 2008-2009 school year.
Applications must be received in the MECS administrative office no later than
12:00 noon on April 7th, 2008, and are available in the MECS administrative
office or by e-mail request (pam.niles@keysschools.com).

MECS is a free public school open to all first through fifth grade elementary
school-aged children in the Lower Keys. We do not discriminate against any
student on the basis of race, religion, sex, national origin, family income level,
disabling conditions, or proficiency in the English language.

A lottery to determine admission will be drawn on the MECS school campus
promptly at 3:00 p.m. on April 14th. If the total number applicants exceed the
number of spaces available, a waiting list will be established from the order in
which the lottery is drawn.

get overturned," developer
Pritam Singh said. "My opin-
ion is that the city will immedi-
ately rectify the issue. I think
that when it's reviewed, it will
get overturned and that will be
that."
Singh said reviving ROGO
could be as simple as the City
Commission drafting an ordi-
nance to extend it.
"You have to extend the law
with a law," planning consult-
ant Owen Trepanier said. "I
think this ruling means that our
city planners are going to be
very busy."
Halpern on Friday said
ROGOs had long interfered
with affordable housing proj-
ects and served as a major
deterrent for property owners
wishing to redevelop their
properties.
The city has long claimed
there are no ROGO allocations


available for projects, but sell-
ers who can set their own price
sell the allocations on the open
market, Singh said. When this
occurs, the city Planning
Department must approve the
process.
On the open market, they
can go for as much as
$200,000.
"I've sold many of them
myself," Singh said, adding he
doesn't think there's cause for
buyers to worry yet.
If the city decides not to
appeal the decision, there's still
the possibility of the state
intervening.
"Even if city commissioners
are on board with the decision,
there is still the - DCA,"
Trepanier said. "I think a lot of
people are hopeful. I think the
city is going to fix it, and pass
a new ROGO ordinance."

Police chief
doesn't make
final job cut
By KYLE TEAL
kleal@kcynoler.conc

Key West Police Chief Bill
Mauldin is staying put.
Mauldin was one of five
final candidates for police
chief of the Columbia Police
Department in South Carolina,
but received a call Sunday
from that city's Human
Resources Department alerting
him he didn't make the cut.
Is he still looking at other
positions?
"No," Mauldin said quickly.
"1 can't foresee anything that
would attract me away from
Key West. But [Columbia] is
one of those places that could
have."
According to Mauldin, the
final three candidates are
South Carolinians, two of
whom live in Columbia, a city
with a population of about
124,000, a stark contrast to
Key West's estimated 25,000.
Mauldin said he appreciates
small-town community polic-


ing and wants to continue
efforts working closely with
schools.
While interviewing in
Columbia, he was asked what
he would do as chief to make
students feel safe during
school. Mauldin said it's nice
to work in a city where that's
not a concern.
He addressed rumblings of
low morale within the depart-
ment, saying he hasn't heard
any and that some of his offi-
cers have told him they're glad
he's staying.
Mauldin graduated from the
University of South Carolina in
Columbia with a bachelor's
degree in political science and
a master's in management from
Webster University in St.
Louis, Mo.
While in the U.S. Air Force,
Mauldin oversaw three offices
and worked for two years with
the International Association
of Chiefs of Police as its direc-
tor of international programs.
He was also the police chief of
Blacksburg, S.C., for a year.
He's been chief in Key West
for almost 3 years.

Administrators
expecting more
state cutting
By KYLE TEAL
ktcal@keynotcr.coim

Florida Keys Community
College is bracing itself for even
more cuts from the state
Legislature, totaling a loss of
$383,000 for the school this fiscal
year.
"We still have plenty in
reserves," college board Chair-
man Ed Scales told the Keyvoter.
Administrators say they can
offset $261,500 of the cuts with
increased revenue, which can be
attributed to a projected 10 per-
cent increase in full-time students
enrolled this year, a 4.5 percent
increase in part-time students and
a 5 percent state tuition increase
approved in October.
That tuition increase yielded a
$32,000 boost to the college's


funds for raises and partnerships.
This leaves FKCC a projected
$121,526 in the red this fiscal
year, not factoring in reserve
funding.
Administrators hope the
Legislature will pull through on a
discussed I percent withholding
that would provide $85.000
worth of fiscal relief, which
won't be decided until the-
Legislature meets March 4.
In a report college President
Jill Landesberg-Boyle handed to
staff, she addresses necessary
means of saving.
"We have to cut back on trav-
el, we have allowed for staff
decreases vis-a-vis attrition and
we are developing operating effi-
ciencies." the report reads.
But she says the price of a
cinched belt equals the loss of a
librarian, lack of updated sofl-
ware, needed maintenance staff,
and vacant administrative and
services positions.


However, before the hiring
freeze, the report says, two new
full-time employees and eight
either part-time or temporary
employees were hired.
On the upside, the number of
full-time students enrolled has
increased by 62 students from
last spring semester, from 768 to
706. Landesberg-Boyle has pre-
dicted a final tally of 797 students
after late-starting classes are full.
"Students are taking a heavier
load," Scales said. "A 10-year
trend has been reversed."
Meanwhile, the architectural
Iirm Hayes and Cummings is
busy with a $10.000 study to
count the possible number of
dorm rooms that could be built on
campus. Administrators estimate
100 units.
The college would have to
rent the dorms to its fundraising
arm. the Florida Keys Educa-
tional Foundation. which would
maintain and operate them, as
community colleges are prohibit-
ed from such responsibilities.

Hostel going the way of condos?


The 21-unit

Seashell may
close for good
By KYLE TEAL
kteal@keynoter.com

An affordable haven for
travelers, revelers, even tem-
porary residents on tight budg-
ets, the Seashell Motel and
Youth Hostel on South Street
in Key West could be torn
down to make way for new
hotel.
At 6 p.m. March 5 at Old
City Hall, the Key West Board
of Adjustment will review
plans by owner Denise Ganton
to reconstruct the 21-unit
motel and hostel with a 17-
unit condominium.
The issue at hand will be
the plans reaching Americans
with Disabilities Act compli-
ance by possibly raising the
structure beyond height limita-
tions.
If the limitation is waived,
the location could become a
hotel to the chagrin of travel-
ers across the country - and
world.
"Many of us came because
of the hostel, and many of us
ended up part-time and full-
time residents because of the
hostel," said Wisconsin resi-
dent Taniquelle Thurner, who
lived at the hostel while com-
pleting an internship in 2003
and returns for visits. "I under-
stand the hostel has had a bad
reputation due to past misman-
agement, and because any
place that does not charge
exorbitant rates is going to
attract people from all walks
of life on a shoestring budget."
Ganton and her husband
John are Michigan residents
who also own a home behind
the hostel on Washington
Street.
Owen Trepanier of
Trepanier and Associates Inc.,
a consultant who was hired by
the Gantons, says the appli-
cants have shown the most
dedication to clean up that
area of South Street by actual-
ly purchasing the property
with the intent to rebuild.
"They took about the most
proactive approach I think
anyone has taken," Trepanier
said.
Trepanier said complaints


of prostitution, drug use and
local burglaries have led many
of the neighbors to support the
project when the Key West
City Commission conditional-
ly approved it June 6, 2006.
Because of ADA compli-
ance issues, a one-year exten-
sion was granted June 5. 2007.
On March 5. the Board of
Adjustment will hear a pro-
posed variance to forgo a 30-
foot height restriction by 3 feet
to accommodate handicip-
friendly vans in a proposed
parking garage.
Trepanier says another
option might be to allow a
mutual easement on city prop-
erty to provide space for two
vans on the street.
Some new residents who
don't view the hostel as a dele-
terious neighborhood fixture
don't want to see it go,
Trepanier said.
That's because employees
like Matthew Hon have made
recent efforts to clean up the
building.
Hon has worked in the hos-
tel's office four years and seen
a decrease in complaints. He
thinks it's important that Key
West have a hostel some-
where, whether or not it's at
the current location.
"I don't know of any prob-
lems over there," Police Chief
Bill Mauldin said.
The hostel at 716-718
South St. bustles with ener-
getic travelers who share
worldly stories in foreign
accents.
"All travel is' good."
Monroe County Tourist
Development Council Director
Harold Wheeler said. "But it's
nQt something we directly
market to. It's not a market in
which we would invest our
advertising dollars."
For the five shared rooms to
choose from, bed rates range
from $34 to $39, while any of
the 10 private rooms go for
$95 to $125 in season - the
lowest costs on the island.
The Board of Adjustment
should consider voting against
the plans "for people like me
- students and world travel-
ers who can't afford to pay
much more but who fall in
love with the island and decide
to stay," Thurner said.

Feds call into
question local
antibiotics use
By PAMELA J. SUAREZ
Keynoter Contributor

Erring on the side of caution
may not be the best medicine,
according to federal guidelines.
But physicians at
Fishermen's Hospital in
Marathon are taking issue with
Medicare and Medicaid recom-
mendations that reduce the time


for giving preventative antibi-
otics post surgery.
"We use our judgment rather
than follow some cookbook
method that attempts to replace
the human mind," said Dr.
Andrew Wolszczak. urologist
and vice chief of staff at
Fishermen's.
His comments follow a low
score issued by the Centers for
Medicare & Medicaid Services
because Fishermen's surgeons
continued to prescribe antibi-
otics beyond the 24-hour limit


suggested by CMS.
"And," Wolszczak said, "our
infection rates are much lower
than the national average, so
we're doing something right."
Despite low surgical infec-
tion rates. Fishermen's was
recently targeted for improve-
ment by the Centers for
Medicare & Medicaid Services
for low rates of compliance with
a surgical care improvement and
infection prevention measure
related to antibiotic use.
The measure dictates that in

Otherside Boardsports
opened this month in Isla-
morada at mile marker 87.7
with the goal of being a one-
stop-shop for those into
skateboarding, kiteboarding,
wakeboarding and wake-
skating.
Owners Mike Walsh and
his fiancee, Shana Mastro,
are kiteboard instructors and
had planned to open a shop
limited to kiteboarding. But
once they started looking at
the market, they realized
there was no store catering
to all their favorite sports.
The store is split into two
sections, one for skateboard-
ing, the other for water-
sports. On the skateboard
side, they have a wall full of
decks (skateboard boards,
minus wheels). Customers
can outfit decks with sepa-
rate trucks (wheel-axle
mechanisms) and wheels.
The store also has ready-
made boards.
All kinds of skating gear
is available, too, including
pads and helmets.
On the watersports side
there's a wall of kites,
which range in size from 7
to 18 square meters.
Another wall is filled with
rows of boards including
kiteboards, wakesurfers,
wakeskates and wakeboards.
The shop offers all the
gear, too.
Walsh and Mastro also
included boarding lifestyle
merchandise - DVDs,
magazines and clothing.
Walsh said board sports
are only going to continue
to grow in the Keys..

Fishermen's infection rate lower than state average


HOSPITAL / From 17

most cases, doctors must stop
giving preventative antibiotics
within 24 hours after routine
surgery because it is unneces-
sary, can cause side effects such
as stomach ailments, and can
contribute to an increase in
antibiotic resistant infections.
The rise in antibiotic resist-
ant infections has been attrib-
uted, in part, to overuse of
antibiotics which has caused
some bacteria to become resist-
ant to the medicine's effects.


An example is Methicillin-
resistant Staphylococcus
aureus, or MRSA, a potentially
fatal infection that puts up a
stubborn fight against some of
the strongest antibiotics avail-
able.
According to CMS data.
Fishermen's surgeons followed
the CMS guidelines and
stopped giving antibiotics
within 24 hours of surgery only
11 percent of the time between
April 2006 and March 2007.
Doctors may deviate from
the standard under certain cir-
cumstances, but are required to

Wolszczak said he and his
colleagues typically deviate
from the guidelines when per-
forming a foreign body
implant, such as an orthopedic

a longer course of antibiotics

Both Wolszczak and
Fishermen's Chief Executive
Officer Kim Bassett cited the
Keys' tropical climate and their
patient's water-based occupa-
tions as reasons for sometimes
giving preventative antibiotics
beyond the 24-hour limit pre-
scribed by CMS.
They said many

woman for Mariners Hospital
in Tavernier, said doctors there
continue a course of preventa-
tive antibiotics -beyond 24
hours only if a patient has a
high white count or has a com-
promised immune system. She
said the rate of surgical infec-
tions at her hospital was "near-
ly zero."
According to CMS data,
Mariners' doctors stopped pre-
ventative antibiotics within the
CMS time frame 76 percent of
the time, and those at Lower
Keys Medical Center, in Key
West complied 65 percent of
the time.
.The Florida Health Finder
database shows that Mariners'
overall rate of infection due to
medical care was 0.28 percent.
At LKMC the rate was .09 per-
cent, and at Fishermen's it was
0.17 percent.
The state average is 0.27 per-
cent.
Don Hall, infection control
manager for Lower Keys
Medical Center, said he believes
the CMS standard is "absolutely
a great thing."
He said studies show that
using the most powerful antibi-
otics before, during and immedi-
ately following surgery is essen-
tial to preventing infection.
But more than 24 hours after
surgery, a less powerful antibiot-
ic will do the trick in most cases
without exposing the patient to
harmful side effects or con-
tributing to antibiotic resistant
infections.
"Why use one of the power-
ful antibiotics if a lot less antibi-
otic would do?" Hall said. "This
standard is a good thing for most
patients, and if for some reason
it isn't, the doctor absolutely has
the flexibility to deviate as long
as he documents the reason.
Bassett said the surgical
infection rate at Fishermen's is
around 2 percent or less, which
is lower than CMS acceptable
rates.
Bassett said Fishermen's staff
is looking for ways to increase
their compliance with the stan-
dard while still providing quali-
ty care. In fact, she said the rate
of compliance increased to
around 25 percent last quarter.
"We're committed to patient
safety." Bassett said. "We moni-
tor all the latest studies and
research, and our physicians will
make the changes they feel are
warranted."

Boomers find more options


Fact check first


Insurance firms
catering more
to the age group
McClatchy Tribune

"Making it to Medicare" has
become one of the biggest chal-
lenges for baby boomers who
retire or are laid off before 65.
Individual health insurance
can be expensive. More than half
of the pre-65 boomers on such
policies spend at least $300 in
monthly premiums for single
coverage, according to the
Commonwealth Fund, a Wash-
ington-based policy institute.
And those with a chronic med-
ical condition may be denied cov-
erage related to that condition or
turned down altogether.
But there may be hope on the
horizon.
Lured by the baby boomer
generation's size and affluence, a
number of insurers have begun to
market policies specifically
geared to the 50-to-64 age group.
Some of the nation's largest
health insurers - Aetna, Humana
and WellPoint - are introducing
more comprehensive products
designed for people who were used
to benefit-rich plans in their jobs.
Consumer advocates are cau-
tious about the new individual
plans, wondering whether they
will do any good for older adults
who haven't been able to purchase
affordable coverage because of
pre-existing conditions.
Prices will remain high, the
advocates predict, and many
chronic conditions will still be
excluded.
But other industry observers
predict the emerging competition
will make health insurance more
affordable and therefore obtain-
able for at least some of the 7 mil-
lion Americans between 50 and
64 who now go without coverage.
Early retirees without employ-
er-subsidized coverage can expect
to spend an average of 40 percent
of their pre-retirement income for
their medical expenses, according
to the Commonwealth Fund.
"For the pre-Medicare crowd,
one serious illness or injury could
wipe out their savings and drive
them into bankruptcy," said Sara
Collins, a health insurance expert
with the group.
It wasn't always so.
Early retirees once could
depend on employer-subsidized


health plans until Medicare began
at 65, but companies hit by new
accounting rules and escalating
medical costs have scaled back
retiree health coverage.
Only 35 percent of big
employers offer retiree health
benefits, down from 66 percent
20 years ago, according to the
Kaiser Family Foundation.
"This current generation of
early retirees will be much more
on their own in terms of paying
for health insurance than their par-
ents were," said Tricia Neuman, a
policy analyst for the foundation.
So, as financial services com-
panies compete to manage 78
million boomers' retirement nest
eggs, health insurers are taking a
new interest in selling them insur-
ance for what's likely to be the
greatest threat to those savings.
"People who have dismissed
individual insurance should take a
new look," said Mohit Ghose, a
spokesman for America's Health
Insurance Plans, a trade group.
"Our members are working to cre-
ate competitively priced plans."
Drawing the most attention
has been Aetna Inc., which
recently signed an agreement with
AARP's business unit to offer a
range of plans for members.
The Premier plans, for exam-
ple, have been designed to provide
coverage resembling employer-
subsidized plans, though the
insured individuals must bear the
full cost themselves and go
through an underwriting process.
The cost depends on the bene-
ficiary's age, address, gender,
medical history and coverage.
Though Aetna will continue to


review an applicant's medical
history to determine eligibility,
John Wider, vice president of
health products and services for
AARP Services Inc.. predicted
the company will be "more
accepting" of certain medical
conditions.
Another provider. Humana
Inc.. said it's promoting its
Portrait plans to the pre-Medicare
market because they come with
unlimited doctor's visits, a tfa-
ture the insurer believes will
appeal to boomers accustomed to
group plans.
Co-payments are $35 for visits
to primary-care doctors and $50
for visits to specialists, said Steve
DeRaleau, chief operating officer
of HumanaOne, Humana's indi-
vidual policy business.
Early retirees who are healthy
and have a financial cushion
should consider a high-deductible
plan that has a lower monthly
premium but still guards against a
serious illness or accident, said
Mike Smith, executive vice pres-
ident of the Brokerage Inc.. an
insurance marketer in Lewisville,
Texas.
"High-deductible plans can
often be paired with health sav-
ings accounts, which let people
pay for medical expenses with
tax-free funds," he said.
Insurers want to build ties to
customers who may need
Medicare-related insurance, such
as a private Advantage plan or
drug plan, after they turn 65.
"We've found that early
retirees are very loyal." said Jude
Thompson, president of WellPoint
Inc.'s individual business. "If we
do our job, they will stay with us
into their Medicare years."

Health-care experts urge
people to check out their
insurance options before
taking early retirement or a
buyout.
First, see whether you
qualify for a group plan: The
easiest option, and possibly
cheapest, is to join a
spouse's policy. If you
belong to a fraternal or pro-
fessional organization, you
also may be able to pur-
chase group coverage
through it.
Extend your employee
health insurance: A federal
law known as COBRA -
short for the Consolidated
Omnibus Budget Recon-
ciliation Act - gives you the
right to remain on your
employer's health plan for
up to 18 months. COBRA
applies to businesses with 20


Some large employers have
also begun to look for ways to
soften the blow they deal older
boomers with downsizing and to
make it easier for former employ-
ees to obtain health care coverage.
The HR Policy Association,
which includes some of the top
U.S. employers, launched its
Retiree Health Access program
Jan. 1 for former employees 55
and older.
Though some of the companies


or more workers. It will be
expensive because you'll
probably have to pay the
full premium plus an admin-
istrative fee. But you won't
need to worry about pre-
existing medical conditions
because it's a group plan.
Get a part-time job with
health benefits: Working 20
hours week at some com-
panies will bring you group
health coverage.
Buy a private plan: If
you're healthy, this shouldn't
be difficult. If not, you should
work with an insurance pro-
fessional who knows the
health care market,
Individual insurance will be
less comprehensive and
more expensive than any
work-related group plans.

are subsidizing former workers'
coverage, others aren't. But all the
participating companies are help-
ing create a large pool of retirees
to obtain lower negotiated rates.
"The big plus for retirees is
that everyone is guaranteed cov-
erage regardless of pre-existing
medical conditions," said Steve
Wetzell, executive vice president
of health-care initiatives for the
association.

Home-field advantage may

next two games.
The unbeaten Eagles face
Brito Private and Champagnat
Catholic, both 2007 playoff
teams from District 16-A,
Thursday and Friday. respective-
ly. Both games in Islamorada
start at 4 p.m.
"1 think our experience finally
has started to show." Eagle head
coach Tony Hammon said. "Most
of our guys are young but they've


played a lot of years."
Island Christian (3-0) tuned
up for the upcoming challenge by
sweeping a two-game home
series against Boca Raton
Christian Friday and Saturday.
The Eagles won the Friday
opener, 11-4, then needed a late
rally Saturday to pull away, 14-7.
"Our guys looked like they
were playing a little tight,"
Hammon said of Saturday's win.
"They settled down and started
hitting. Then they were fine."
Freshman catcher Jordan
Izaguirre turned in a monster day
at the plate, going 3-for-4 with all

Marathon boys
get long-sought
tennis victory
By RYAN McCARTHY

The girls continued to roll and
the boys earned a much-needed
victory, which all added up to a
successful day of tennis for
Marathon High School Monday
against Keys rival Coral Shores
High School.
The Dolphin boys earned their
first victory in more than a year
and did so in convincing fashion
over the Hurricanes, winning 7-0.
Coach Mark Hooper said lhe


was proud of the way the boys
overcame a lack of confidence to
win the match. Several players
held convincing leads and let
them slip away before recovering
for the win.
"I told them 'Don't be afraid
to win.' It's a new feeling for
them and that's the message I had
for them." Hooper said. "They
keep improving and they earned
the victory."
Coral Shores coach Blake Fry
said his team wasn't ready to play
against what he called a much-
improved Dolphins team.

Marathon has done anything
against us, but they earned it.
[They] have a much stronger
team this year." Fry said.
Marathon No. 1 John Danaher
notched a hard-earned victory
over Hurricane sophomore Zack
Stroup, 7-7 (7-2). Danaher trailed
throughout before tying the
match at 7-7 and handily winning
the tiebreaker.
"It w\as good to see John see
that victory. He was always one
game behind and at the 6-7
changeover 1 went out and talked
to him and calmed him down."
Hooper said. "When he got it to
7-7 he knew he was back in it."
Junior Kerry Wonderlin let a
7-2 lead slip away, but eventually
won his No. 2 match over
Hurricane senior Aaron
Holmbraker, 8-6.
Junior Jennie Lancaster (8-6).


-"" -


sophomore Weston Wiatt (8-3),
and eighth-grader Steven Nelson
(8-5), playing in his first official
match, finished the singles sweep
for the Dolphins.
Lancaster and Wonderlin won
their doubles match 6-1, while
junior Ricardo Dominguez and
seventh-grader Riley Durkin won
7-7 (7-0).
Marisa Brossard won both her
singles and doubles matches to
help lead the girls to a 5-2 victory
over a traditionally strong Coral
Shores program. The freshman
defeated Allison Rhyne 8-1 and
teamed with sophomore Angela
Farello to win doubles 6-2.
Hooper said Brossard is rel-
ishing the opportunity to play
against experienced upper-class
players. Brossard has now won
three consecutive matches after
falling Friday to a Miami
Country Day senior ranked fourth
in the state in her age group.
"She's playing girls 16, 17, 18


years old, so this is great experi-
ence to play kids older than her,"
he said.
"I think she got down quick
and she's a lot better player than
she showed yesterday," Fry said.
"The girls weren't ready to play
and that was a good wakeup call
for them."
Farello lost her singles match
to Casey Rhyne, but freshmen
Rose Bellevue (8-5) and Kelsey
Wonderlin (8-2), and junior
Michele Bellevue (8-1) all won
their matches over Hurricane
opponents.
The girls improved to 5-2 so
far this season, while the boys are
now 1-5. They are scheduled to
visit St. Brendan High School
today at 3 p.m. before hosting
Palmer Trinity School Friday, 3
p.m.
The Dolphins are having a
carwash fundraiser this Sunday
from 9:30 a.m. to noon at
Sombrero Country Club.

runs in the second but Boca's
Blazers kept pace and tied the
game at 6-6 in the fourth.
In the seventh, Boca went
ahead, 7-6, before 1CS answered
with its second five-run inning in
the fifth.
Aaron Izaguirre, the Eagles'
top pitcher last year, saw his first
extended action on the mound
this regular season for the win, in
fourth-inning relief of starter Tim
Globus.
Izaguirre, slowed by shoulder
trouble, limited his arsenal of
pitches Saturday to throws that
would not aggravate the injury.
"I told Aaron he was coming
out at the first twinge," Hammon
said, "but he was fine."
Overall, the four lzaguirre
brothers contributed 10 Eagles
hits (Phillip had three, with one
double: Aaron had a single and
double; and Matt singled twice).
Third baseman Andy Hertel
went 3-for-3, and Cody IHoag
scored two runs in addition to a
key single.
Kaelin Carter, a seventh-grad-
er starting in right, tagged a dou-
ble down the line. "Kaelin's
young but he's got such a good
glove that we can't keep him out
of the lineup," said the coach.
In Friday's opener, Phillip


lzaguirre pitched the complete
game, facing 27 batters. He
struck out 12 while allowing six
hits. Two runs were unearned.
Matt Izaguirre tripled, dou-
bled and singled to lead the nine-
hit Eagle attack
Hertel and Phillip Izaguirre
doubled and singled.
Jordan Izaguirre drove in two
runs, including a deep single to
center that drove in a run during
the Eagles' six-run rally in the
fourth. Tom Cavanagh. Kadian
Carter and'Ryan Overfield also
picked up RBIs in the stanza.
The games against formidable
Brito and Champagnat will be a
test of the Eagles' new defensive


alignment. Only Hertel will be in
the same spot as last spring.
Matt and Aaron lzaguirre have
moved from the infield to the out-
field, providing deep defense as
younger players have improved
enough to handle infield duties.
Globus plays second or short-
stop, depending on who pitches.
Cavanagh plays second in some
alignments. "We don't lose a
thing with Tim at short, and Tom
has been doing a great job." said
the coach.
"Aaron and Matt cover a lot of
ground and grab catches we
probably wouldn't have made
last year," Hammon said. "Our
defense is playing solid."

Harrison, and extended the
lead to 3-0 in the third on a
sacrifice fly by Radier
Gonzalez.
With starting pitcher
Blayne Weller snapping off
curve balls for strikeouts, the
local fans had reason for
optimism.
But Pace tied the game in
the fourth with a three-run,
three-hit rally that was aided
by an error and a hit batter.
Key West took a 4-3 lead
on an RBI double by desig-
nated hitter Kyle Lepine in
the bottom of the fifth. But
in the sixth, Weller hit anoth-
er batter, gave up a two-run
triple and wild-pitched in a
third run as the Spartans
took a 6-4 lead.
The game's most dramat-
ic moment came in the
Conchs' sixth when, with
one on, the left-handed bat-
ting, 185-pound Thomas
drove a 420-foot home run
over the fence in right-center
field to tie the game at 6-6.
"It was a bomb," Thomas
agreed later. "I hit a low
inside fast ball. I was real
happy. Tying the game
against Pace, our rival. It felt
good."
Menendez called on sec-
ond baseman Frankie
Ratcliff to pitch the seventh.
He walked a batter with one
out, got a grounder for the
second out, but then gave up
a run-scoring double down


-the left-field line to Adrian
English.
That turned out to be the
game winner when the
Conchs went down in order
in their seventh.
Saturday afternoon, the
sun-struck ballpark - where
the special at the Eleven-
Time Cafe was fried chicken
- was as quiet as a church,
with only a smattering of
umbrella-shaded, languid
fans on hand as the Conchs
took on Reagan.
Capping a productive
weekend. Thomas showed
that he could also pitch,
shutting out the Bison on
one hit over four innings.
A two-run double by
Lepine got the Conchs start-
ed in the first inning, and
they scored three more in the
second, two when the
Reagan shortstop dropped a
popup, and one on a passed
ball.
The game dragged on
until -reliever Kevin
Hernandez got the final out
in the seventh. The Conchs,
hands raised high, faced
their fans as the alma mater
played, ending another
weekend of baseball.
"It was good to not have
to sit around all day and wait
to get the bad taste out of our
mouth," Menendez, who had
had a sleepless night, said of
the rare afternoon game.
The Conchs (4-2 overall,
2-1 in district) will play
Mater Academy at 3:30 p.m.
today in Miami.

Hurricanes will try to make
amends Thursday for a lacklus-
ter outing against Palmer
Trinity.
Palmer's Falcons play at the
Canes' home field in
Islamorada at 3:45 p.im.
Thursday.
The Canes dropped to 1-2
after falling to Palmer in an 8-3
game Friday in Miami.
"We surely will have to step
it up from here on," head coach
Jeff Meyers said. "We came out
flat in pregame and it just con-
tinued.... I'm not sure what it
was but we did not show up to
play."


Starting pitcher Chris Noble
allowed only three hits and one
earned run during his four
innings. He struck out eight
Falcons.
The Canes did not take
advantage, with only two base
runners in the first four innings.
Outfielder Mike Loguercio
went 3-for-3 for Coral Shores,


driving in a run. Noble added an
RBI double.
Coral Shores stays home
Friday to face Miami Country

Conchs pretty sure


they shine at Ripoll


Track meet
ends early,
results vague
By DICK WAGNER
Keynoter Contributor

As best that can be deter-
mined, the Key West High
School track team finished
fourth in the Ripoll Relays
Friday afternoon at Belen Jesuit
in Miami.
The meet ended in darkness
on a field that had no lights. The
discuss toss and the pole vault
were not even completed.
The meet was not electroni-
cally scored, like most are, so
the Conchs headed home with
only a vague idea of the results.
Coach David Perkins was hand-
ed a fistful of ribbons (awarded
for finishing in the top eight).
but "1 have no idea who they are
for." he said Monday.


What's known is that the
Conchs' boys team of Phillip
Young, Marion Briones and Cale
Hartle finished first in the triple
jump, led by Young's personal-
best effort of 42 feet 6 inches.
The boys high jump team of
sophomores Peralt Annulysse (5
feet 6), Vladimyr Sibera (5-6)
and Trae Mauldin (5-4) finished
third. "We're just learning the
techniques," Annulysse said.
Perkins was pleased with his
4 x 100 and 4 x 400 relay teams.
"They were pretty competitive,
but they're not in April shape
yet." he said, already looking
ahead to the district meet.
The 4 x 100 team of Young,
Briones, Michel Ghaderi-Sohi
and Moses Sampson ran the
eveUt in 44.4 seconds. Young,
Briones and Sampson were
joined on the 4 x 400 team by
cross-country standout Zach
Harden.


"It was so dark we couldn't
get the [baton] changes," Perkins
said.
Showing promise in the pole
vault was junior Travis Stokes,
who vaulted 9 feet 6 inches.
On the girls' side, the Conchs
finished fourth in the high jump,
said junior Victoria Brisson, who
jumped 4-8. Freshman Danielle
Marascal also jumped 4-8 and
junior Amy Coley cleared the
bar at 4-2.
Marascal also did a 28-5 in
the triple jump.
The girls' relay teams - led
by Courtney Walker, Francesca
Hicks, Daphne Barnett, Rachel
Rivet, Krizzie Menez and Emma
Fehlig -- did well enough to
(apparently) win ribbons.
The Conchs will compete in
the Angelini Relays at 1 p.m.
Friday at Westminster Academy
in Lauderdale Lakes. Results,
Perkins said, will immediately
be forthcoming.


Errors cost Lady Dolphins


Offense also
leads to loss
on the diamond
By RYAN McCARTHY
rmccailrlhy@ keycnoter.com

Errors and offensive struggles
led to an 8-0 defeat at the hands of
a strong Westminster Christian
School team for Marathon High
School Friday at Stanley Switlik
Elementary School.
"We started out really rough; in
the first five innings they scored
all their runs." coach Andrea
Murphy said, noting the Warriors
scored three runs each in the sec-
ond and fourth innings.
Murphy said the Dolphins
couldn't afford to give a team as
strong as Westminster any easy
opportunities.
"The first three innings we
made a lot of errors and once you
let a team that good get ahead it's
hard to dig out. They're great
competition and you can't [make]
that many errors and expect to do
good," Murphy said.
Murphy said junior hurler


Megan Gardner had a strong out-
ing. pitching six innings and
allowing four earned runs.
Freshman Alli Heller pitched a
scoreless seventh.
The Dolphins struggled might-
ily at the plate, going without a hit
for the first four innings. Later in
the game they stayed patient and
didn't take bad swings, Murphy
said.
"Melanie [Boyd] broke
through with a hit. We started to
hit the ball after that, but they


went straight to people," she said.
"She was one of the fastest pitch-
ers we'll see and once the girls
made adjustments they made con-
tact."
The Dolphins have been prac-
ticing for more than a month, but
a light schedule early in the season
has seen the team play only two
games thus far. Murphy said the
girls have been anxious to play.
The Dolphins are scheduled to
travel to Miami Christian School
before hosting Ransom
Everglades the following day, 2
p.m.

Canes look


for reversal


Lacrosse team
rides .5-game
losing streak
By KEVIN WADLOW
Senior Staff Writer
kwadlow@keynoter.com

Now would be a good time for
a turnaround, says the Coral
Shores boys lacrosse coach.
The Hurricanes have a chance
to snap a five-game losing streak
when Gulliver Prep arrives in
Tavemier today for a 4 p.m.
match.
"It's the kind of game where
you are really just looking for
effort from the boys," Cane head
coach Erik Bryan said. "Score
doesn't even factor into it -just
that we play hard, play smart and
do our best."
Coral Shores was not ready to
play at its sharpest Saturday, los-
ing a 15-2 game in Miami.
"Our kids came out very flat
and Ransom came out ready to
play," Br'an said. "They were
tenacious on loose balls and our
kids weren't."
The Raiders took numerous
shots at the Hurricane goal.
Keeper D.J. Farr ended with two
dozen saves, including several on
difficult one-on-one situations,
Bryan said.
The coach credited Ransom
for being the more aggressive
club on the field. "That said,
Ransom was definitely not a team
we should have lost to by 15-2."
Bryan said he has not seen
Gulliver this spring. "I hear they
are a real tough team," he said.
"If we do our best, you never
know what will happen."
Coral Shores (1-5) travels to


America Heritage of Boca Raton
on Tuesday.

Girls fall
The goal of the game was
more important than goals in the
game, Coral Shores girls lacrosse
coach Mark Hall said after an 18-
10 home loss to J.P. Taravella on
Saturday.
"This was a non-district game
for us so we were not concerned
about a win as much as letting
some of our new players get
some time on the field," Hall
said. "You can't really simulate
the real game experience at prac-
tice so this was good for the new
players."
The Lady Cane roster is four
deep at the midfield positions, be
noted. Against Taravella's Lady
Trojans, Coral Shores rotated
midfield lines after each score.
Players like Brooke Clark
earned more playing time, he
said. "Brooke showed us a lot of
athleticism and promise" in mak-
ing an assist and shot on goal.
Defensively, rookie goalkeeper
Dannon Magrane did well with 10
saves against Taravella's veterans.
Rachel Catanio scored a team-
high five goals with one assist.
Brittany Wood scored three times
for the Canes. Melissa Mott and
Melissa Sante each had a solo
score.
"Considering Taravella played
their starters until the last two
minutes of the game, an eight-
goal difference is quite
respectable," Hall said.
Coral Shores (3-2) travels
Thursday to Stoneman Douglas
of Parkland, then plays a 6 p.m.
March 5 home game against
Killian.

Big rally lifts Lady Canes


5th inning
pivotal for
Coral Shores
By KEVIN WADLOW
Senior Staff Writer
kwadlow@keynoter.com


A six-run rally capped Coral
Shores' best performance yet in
the fast-pitch softball season.
The Lady Hurricanes toppled
Ransom Everglades, 8-5, under
the lights in Taverier Friday.
"That was a nice win," said
Paul Grewe, co-coach with
Mike Young. "It was our best
all-around performance of the
year, so far.
"But we have to build on it,"
Grewe said. "We didn't make
many mistakes but the ones we
did cost us runs. Against a team
like Gulliver, it might have cost
us the game."
Sophomore pitcher Holly
Given threw a six-hitter for the
decision.
The Lady Canes (2-1) took
an early 2-0 lead but saw
Ransom come back to tie it in
the third. Coral Shores added a
go-ahead run in the bottom of
the inning.
Then in the fifth, outfielder
Andrea Cockerham (three hits)


started the big rally with a sin-
gle. The Canes kept it up with
hits by Given, Ciara Sanchez.
Michelle Sexton and Rosie
Malzacher.
A defensive miscue helped
Ransom score some late two
runs but the Lady Raider come-
back bid ended there.
Ciara Sanchez had two of the
12 hits in the Cane offense.


"We played a great game in
the outfield with nine putouts."
Grewe said. "We need that kind
of effort every game."
The Lady Canes play at
home against Palmer Trinity at
4 p.m. Thursday and against
Archbishop Curley at 7 p.m.
Friday.
Results of a game earlier this
week ' against Princeton
Christian were not available at
press time.

Fishing


Fourth-grader
is top angler

Skyler Robinson is just 9
years old and weighs.pnly 59
pounds, but the fourth-grade
student has racked up catch-
es that older and more expe-
rienced anglers might envy.
The Ocean Beach, N.Y.,
youngster was named pee-
wee out-of-county master
angler in this month's 42nd
annual awards banquet for
the 2007 Key West Fishing
Tournament, with accom-
plishments that included
scoring 41 releases of 12
species.
It was Robinson's third
consecutive peewee master
angler award in the annual
eight-month challenge that
targets more than 40 species.
His angling prowess
earned him a divisional win
for a 10.3-pound jack
crevalle caught on 12-pound
test line. He also scored the
peewee division's heaviest
fish honors, catching a 5-
pound bonefish on 12-pound
test, an 11.8-pound jack
crevalle on 20-pound test, a
4.8-pound mackerel on spin,
a 2-pound mangrove snapper .
on 12-pound test and a 17.8-
pound barracuda on 12-
pound test.
"Last year he caught a
100-pound tarpon all by
himself, and two nurse
sharks back to back - one
was about 110 pounds and
one was about 130," father
Chris Robinson said.
"I think I want to be a
competitive fisherman and
enter tournaments for the rest
of my life," the younger
Robinson said.
The 2007 Key West
Fishing Tournament-attracted
1,964 entries from 945
anglers.
In the adult competition,
Dan Trapp Sr. of Ada, Mich.,
won the men's master angler
award for out-of-county
entrants. Mike Allen of Key
West scored the most releas-
es overall with 101.
The 2008 Key West
Fishing Tournament is
scheduled to begin March 14
with a two-day kickoff chal-
lenge and continue through
Nov. 30.


It's a fishing fiesta


Weekend brings
3 tournaments
and nautical show

Pick your fishing poison for
this weekend.
Do you like reef fishing? How
about some late winter sailfish-
ing? Maybe your cup of tea is
serious tournament kingfishing.
Quite possibly, you just want to
bargain hunt for fishing rods or
possibly a new boat. Well, within
a 50-mile stretch of the Keys, you
can do any of those.
Starting with a captains' meet-
ing Friday in Key Colony Beach,
get your early World Sailfish
Championship game on by com-
peting in the 10th annual Leon
Shell Memorial Billfish
Tournament. This tournament,
hand in hand with the Bull &
Cow Dolphin Tournament in
May, has brought Marathon back
to the major-tournament scene.
There's $25,000 guaranteed
for first place in this two-day
event running Saturday and
Sunday. The captains' meeting
Friday and awards ceremony
Sunday will be held at Sparky's
Landing in Key Colony.
I've seen it before - if you
have the money the boaters will
come, as the World Sailfish in
Key West six years ago proved.
One can produce an outstanding
tournament where all of the pro-


ceeds go to
a charity.

Cal Sutphin The fine
line walked
by tournaments like the Leon
Shell have guaranteed prize
money with the lion's share of the
proceeds still going to Hospice of
the Florida Keys/Visiting Nurse
Association. In the previous nine
years of the Leon Shell, $60.000
has been donated to Hospice.
To sign up for a chance to take
home $25,000, go to www.leon
shelltournament.com.
Staying in the Middle Keys
Saturday comes a new tourna-
ment idea fulfilled by Marathon
local John Fruenmorghen. The
Fraternal Charities Inshore
Fishing Classic is one of a kind.
Anglers can target four
species found in nearshore
waters: Mutton snapper, yellow-
tail, mangrove snapper and
grouper. Fruemorghen approach-
ed me more than two months ago
to help get the word out. He men-
tioned he was having six different


charities as recipients. I said,
"Whoa. That's kind of overkill.
When it's all said and done,
there's not much money donated
to each organization."
What he had in mind and is
obviously working was to have
each charity push the tournament.
When an angler signs up, he or
she can dictate to what charity
they want 100 percent of the pro-
ceeds to go. In other words, if the
charity isn't out there helping
promote the tournament or sign
anglers up, it's only hurting itself.
The charities and nonprofits
are the Elks. Moose, Shriners,
American Legion. Disabled
American Veterans or Habitat for
Humanity.
Anglers can fish from any-
where they want, bridges, boats,
beaches, etc. If you would like to
sign up, call (800) 760-5788.
The last two major events
going on the weekend coincide at
the same time and place.
It was a stroke of genius that
brought together the Southern
Kingfish Association's Profes-
sional Tour and the Rotary Club
of Key West's Boat Show and
Nautical Market (see story, Page
21).
For six years, the show and
market has grown to raise money
for scholarships for local youths.
but this is a banner year with the
inclusion of the SKA Pro Tour

The angling pales for sails and tails


For success,

It's not always full-throttle fish-
ing hitting on all cylinders. Yes.
there still is a wide abundance of
fish hitting all over the place but
every once in a while, you will
find one species or two that seem
to take a break for a spell.
Two of them are the sailfish
and the yellowtail. Both have been
a little slow for a few days now.
The sailfish have been spotty
although they have had their days
when they would show in good
numbers. The consistency has
been the question. A good num-
ber of them have been found
along the inside edge of the Gulf
Stream where there is a notice-
able current line. This has been a
good spot when they are not very
evident along the reef edge.
I'm not saying this is where
they go every day, but it has been
fairly productive. Wahoo and
quite a few dolphin have also
been found along this edge. It has
been varying from 550 feet to 650
feet of water. If it is calm enough

weigh-in headquarters.
Lee Murray from Murray
Marine on Stock Island admitted
the event just got too large for his
marina to house the weigh-in, so
where better to move it than the
Outer Mole Pier? Imagine the
backdrop of the USS Mohawk,
Nancy Foster Eco-Discovery
Center and the SKA weigh-in,
with well more than 100 boats
participating.
If this event in Key West turns
out to be only half the success
last weekend's Upper Keys
Nautical Flea Market was, then
watch out for a packed house.

show and market, go to www

been more
in pockets
of large
schools
rather than
spread out
all over the
drop-off of


the reef. It
takes some looking to find the
larger schools. The shallower
spots and up on the patch reefs
have been the most consistent for
finding fish, although not tons of
the really big ones. They should
be back up and chomping in a day
or two in better numbers.
What have remained hot are
the bay and bridge channels.
These venues have held steady
with mangrove snapper, grouper
and many other species.
The bay has been full of
mackerel, mostly Spanish. If you
go out far enough, 7 to 11 miles
north of the islands, and don't
catch mackerel, you definitely
need to attend one of our semi-
nars or maybe more than one.
Two things to remember: Use
good chum and wire leaders.
Without wire leaders, you will be
an expert at fishing knots by the
end of the day and without chum


you will be asleep by noon.

raderie and to relax, don't use bait
or you will be interrupted contin-
uously.
The bridges have been red hot
with a variety of species, not only
from fishing around the bridges
by boat but from off them as well.
As you travel the Keys, you pass
bridges and see dozens of anglers
working from these old bridges.
One of the best anglers from
the bridges in the area will be
here this Thursday speaking of
some of the techniques and tack-
le he uses off them to find suc-
cess. He commonly limits out in a
short time on several species
without the use ofa boat. which is
a good thing for those who don't
have one or on those windy days
that you just don't want to go out
and have your body turned inside
out.
He'll speak at our Marine
Educational Center at our free
fishing seminar, at 6 p.m.
Thursday. The center is at mile


marker 50 bayside.
In other areas, flats fishing has
been very good, with numerous
bonefish caught and seen on a
daily bass. The winds have not
affected the guides as much as the
visitors, mostly because the pro-
fessional guides know where and
when they can fish behind this
island or that one and find fish in
much calmer conditions.
Fly fishermen have been,.
doing very well with the bones
and on certain days, quite a few
tarpon, too. Permit have been fre-
quenting the flats all along. Other
species that are not as popular but
just about as much fun have been
in abundance. Jacks, barracuda,
small sharks and quite a few
snapper have all been in these
areas.
