For the second time in just
four months, the South Florida
Regional Planning Council has
objected to Monroe County's
proposed law to protect the
working waterfront..
The Monday vote came
after the County Commission
altered the ordinance last
month in favor of private
development on Stock Island.
The Planning Council, com-
prising 19 elected and appoint-
ed officials from Monroe,
Miami-Dade and Broward
counties, unanimously objected
to several aspects of the ordi-
nance, originally drafted to
protect the Keys' commercial
fishing industry and provide
public access to the water.
The commission first adopt-
ed the ordinance in September.
In October, the Planning
Council objected to vague lan-
guage and the ordinance
allowing hotels and homes on
working waterfront parcels.
In December, the state
Department of Community
Affairs issued objections that
mirrored those of the Planning


Commission and sent it back
to the county.
The County Commission
recrafted the ordinance to
address those concerns, but
attorneys for New Stock Island
Properties and Robbie's
Marina on Stock Island drafted
changes, which the commis-
sion adopted.
The new language would
make it easier to build a hotel
on commercial fishing docks,
change the way the county's
strict 35-foot building height
limit is calculated, and do
away with what some call the
core concept of preservation
- no net loss of maritime use.
The way the changes read,
they apply only to Safe
Harbor.
DCA spokesman Jon Peck
said his agency takes the coun-
cil's objections very seriously.
"We take the concerns of
the regional planning councils
quite seriously," he said, "as
we do any other agency that
offers concerns on [land]-plan
amendments."
A staff memo issue by the
Planning Council found:
The proposed ordinance
has nothing to support the
inclusion of "permanent resi-
dential development" other
than employee housing and
commercial apartments.


The ordinance does not
identify how residential units
would be compatible with
water-dependent and water-
related uses permitted in the
land-use category.
It does not specify how
natural resources will be pro-
tected or how traditional mar-
itime uses would be preserved
if homes and hotels are
allowed in the maritime indus-
tries zoned area.
It contains language that
is "lacking in commitment."
It does not include a strat-
egy to enhance commercial and
recreational waterfronts.
It does not specify how
the county would protect and
increase public access to the
waterfront.
DCA is reviewing the pro-
posed ordinance, Peck said. On
April 1, the agency will either
find the law in compliance or
noncompliant with local
growth management laws. If
found noncompliant, it will
likely go to an administrative
hearing, though Peck points out
that it's too early to speculate
which way DCA will rule.
The County Commission's
3-2 vote on the ordinance gen-
erated a lot of ire in the commu-
nity. Commissioners Dixie
Spehar and Mario Di Gennaro
and Mayor Sonny McCoy voted
for it. Many say they tend to
vote in favor of development.


'Working poor' affected


FUNDING / From 1

administered by the Florida
Department of Law
Enforcement. The total of nation-
al grants for 2009 will be $175
million, down from $520 million
in the current year
Last month, the Monroe
County Commission decided
to cut funding for human-serv-
ice agencies for fiscal 2008-09
to 20 percent less than the cur-
rent budget year.
Dombrowski said all the
agencies that share in the grant
are already trying to figure out
where to make cuts.
"Every kid that comes to
the program receives some
kind of financial assistance,"
he said. "Ninety-five percent
are at or below poverty level.


With the cuts, we might come
to a point where we have to put
the cost on the backs of the
parents. And they can't afford
that. They're the working
poor."
Requests to the county's
Human Services Advisory
Board for 2008-09 totaled $3.3
million for 32 agencies.
Instead, the County Com-
mission proposes funding
them with $1.8 million.
The Byrne grant provided
$35,000 to the Boys and Girls
Club this year. It also provided
$56,000 for the Care Center in
the Upper Keys and another
$50,000 for the Monroe
County Youth Challenge.
Dombrowski says he wor-
ries that essential services
throughout the county are
going to be hard hit in the


coming year as local, state and
federal dollars dry up.
He says the overall trend of
decreasing dollars means a
change in the complexion of
the entire community. Hard-
pressed families who can no
longer afford after-school care
may eventually be forced to
leave the community.
"And they're not coming
back," Dombrowski said.
Though the Florida Keys
Outreach Coalition did not
receive Byrne grant funds this
year, the homeless outreach
organization's executive direc-
tor, Stephen Braddock, has
used the grant in the past to
help fund residential programs
for substance abuse.
Braddock warns that the 67
percent cut in funds is a fore-
shadowing of things to come.

King digs the Keys


VISIT / From I

guest of the owner of the Westin
Key West Resort & Marina near
Mallory Square. The owner's
boat was unavailable and Walker
by chance received a call.
"A friend of mine in Palm
Beach told the captain of the
owner of the Westin that
maybe I could help them out,"
Walker said. Not even knowing
who he would be picking up,
Walker ran a 57-foot Dean
Johnson, the Cracker, down to
Key West.
The next thing they knew,
they were surrounded by
Secret Service agents and a
dog was sniffing their boat for
bombs.
Things got even more surre-
al, the pair said, when the dog
fell in the water and his ex-
Navy Seal trainer dove right in
after him.
"The dog was getting off the
boat and- he fell in the water
between the dock and the boat.
[The trainer] handed his
Blackberry and wallet to Secret
Service and jumped right in
after him," Ritli said. "That's
something you don't see every
day."
On board, the king intimated
his love for American television
during a short chat with his cap-
tains. Ritli says he is a fan of
"Two and a Half Men" and
"CSI: Miami," as well as the
new Fox show "Terminator: The
Sarah Connor Chronicles."
They said he was a very
good tipper but got skunked.
Key West Mayor Morgan
McPherson was supposed to
make the trip Sunday, which


was can-
celled, and
missed a
chance to fish
with the king
.: Saturday due
to a schedul-
ing conflict.
McPherson
ABDULLAH said friends
involved with
the king's security detail had
asked him about setting up
excursions.
Saturday, "I had a dinner
engagement with my wife; I
was supposed to meet him the
next day," McPherson said.
"Unfortunately, it didn't work
out."
It wasn't only about fishing.
USI Radio's Bill Becker
told the Keynoter he received a
call from a patron at a local
convenience store no one's
sure which one who said the
king's motorcade stopped traf-
fic when he pulled into the
parking lot on his Harley-
Davidson.
"He said they literally evac-
uated everyone out of the con-
venience store so the king
could go shopping," Becker
said. The patron reportedly
counted six bikes, several lim-
ousines and at least 24 guns.
King Abdullah is apparently
a motorcycle enthusiast and
can be seen riding one at his
Web site, www.kingabdullah
.jo. The site also says he loves
fishing and scuba.
King Abdullah on Tuesday
met with Bush in Washington to
discuss oil issues regarding the
Organization of the Petroleum
Exporting Countries.

Family jailed on tax charges


The owners of mattress and
furniture businesses in Monroe
and Miami-Dade counties were
jailed Friday on charges they
stole more than $42,000 in sales
tax they collected from cus-
tomers in Monroe but failed to
send to the state Department of
Revenue.
Norberto Gomez Jr., 25,
Noemi C. Gomez, 22, and
Norberto Gomez Sr., 45, all of
Homestead, were arrested by the
Monroe County Sheriff's Office
on felony charges relating to
failure to file tax returns and pay
tax. If convicted, they face up to
15 years in prison and up to


$10,000 in fines, as well as pos-
sible repayment of the alleged
stolen tax.
The Gomezes also face
charges related to failure to file
tax returns and failure to collect
tax as required by law.
The Gomezes operated
Mattress to Go and Gomez
Furniture at mile marker 104,
and South Dade Mattress in
Naranja, Redland Mattress in
Miami Gardens and three other
Mattress to Go stores in Miami
and Hialeah.
According to Revenue


Department investigators, the
Gomezes routinely collected tax
from customers. However, dur-
ing various periods between
April 2004 and this past
October, they failed to send in to
the state all the sales taxes they
collected.
Investigators say the
Gomezes illegally kept
$42,517.72 in tax money collect-
ed at the Key Largo location.
Charges are also pending for
theft of additional tax money in
Miami-Dade County.
Under state law, sales tax is
the property of the state at the
moment of collection.

FIRM paints dark picture for rates


2 more meetings
on its strategy
set for this week
By RYAN McCARTHY
rmccarthy@keynoter.com

Fair Insurance Rates in
Monroe hosted the first of three
town-hall meetings Monday
night at Marathon High School to
discuss the likely upcoming bat-
tle to keep insurance rates at their
current levels.
FIRM is/ a grassroots group
founded in February 2006 by a
group of 32 Key West neighbors
frustrated with skyrocketing
windstorm insurance premiums
doled out by Citizens Property
Insurance Corp., Florida's insurer
of last resort. It now has more
than 5,000 members Keyswide.
FIRM successfully convinced
the state Office of Insurance
Regulation to roll back Monroe
County rates in 2007 by 32 per-
cent, to $13.58 per $1,000 of
assessed property value.
But that rate freeze expires
Jan. 1, 2009, and Citizens has
already filed preliminary analysis
indicating alarmingly high poten-
tial increases.
According to FIRM's presen-
tation Monday, "Monroe County
will be faced with an increase in
our rates of between 91 and 123
percent," by far the largest
increase in the state.
On average, Monroe County
residents could be facing premi-
ums ranging from $6,225 to
$7,229. At the current rates, the
average premium in Monroe
County is $3,242.
According to FIRM's presen-
tation, these rate increases would
equate to an enormous loss in
annual disposable income for
county property owners. At,91
percent, FIRM estimates a com-


bined loss of $77.7 million, while
a 123' percent increase would
mean a combined loss of $102.5
million.
The presentation states the
percentage increase is dependent
upon "whether reinsurance is
acquired primarily through the
Florida Catastrophe Fund or
through private sources."
"The real reason we're seeing
these raises is tremendous devel-
opment in coastal areas. We've
had a stable population [in Monroe
County] for the last 60 years, so
we are not responsible for the cri-
sis in the rest of the state," FIRM
board member Heather Carruthers
said at the meeting.
FIRM contends the tough
building code and, in Key West
in particular, a history of sturdy
construction, actually limit
Citizens' exposure in Monroe
County. Losses per claim in
Monroe County ($931) are much
less compared with other high-
risk areas in the state.
This coming year, FIRM
plans to work toward the repeal
of "use and file," a practice by
which Citizens can begin charg-
ing a particular rate prior to OIR
approval, permanently repealed.
It also wants Citizens to be more
transparent in its rate-setting,
underwriting and billing and will
work toward the same rate roll-
backs for condominiums and
commercial properties.
Two more FIRM community
meetings are planned this week,
both from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m.
They're tonight at Key West High
School and Thursday at Coral
Shores High in the Upper Keys.

Keys Opinion


Funding pain coming.

one way or another

Pay now or pay later.
That pretty much defines the dilemma property owners face
in much of the Keys, where a mandate to sewer the islands by
2010 looms along with too much confusion over costs and
timetables.
In Marathon, the current City Council struggled over this
issue for nearly two years before deciding to move forward.
That vote was a narrow-thin 3-2 margin.
Since that initial go-ahead, support for sewering citywide has
grown, even though elected officials know that future state or
federal funds to help are promises, not givens.
A similar dilemma has reared its ugly head in the Islamorada
Village Council races, where four of the five council seats are
being contested.
In campaign forums, political ads and speeches, most of the
candidates have weighed in pro or con, mostly con.
In the midst of an election, it's always easier to disavow any-
thing to do with major capital spending, even if it's to pay for
sewers that will clean up nearshore waters and avoid threatened
fines and penalties for noncompliance.
In today's Keynoter, we publish a letter from Islamorada res-
ident David Makepeace, who makes a thoughtful and reasoned
argument for keeping the sewer debate in perspective.
He describes the issue as "very complex" and notes that cam-
paign sound bites do much more to inflame, rather than inform
voters. Makepeace chaired the village's Water Quality
Improvement Committee, which recommended moving for-
ward on sewers by bonding out the costs estimated at $115
million.
That recommendation laiided with a loud thud at the Village
Council's Feb. 14 meeting, where all three incumbents facing
voters next Tuesday didn't want to talk about sewers, voting
voted down the recommendation.
Even some of the candidates running for -council seats
weighed in, including Rod Halenza, who's running for Seat 2
against Jill Zima Borski. Halenza is against borrowing the
money. Borski thinks it makes sense to proceed now because it
costs even more to wait.
Vice Mayor Cathi Hill, who won reelection unopposed,
summed it up at the council meeting by saying: "Your referen-
dum on whether or not you want to shoulder this burden is
March 11."
Actually, that's not true. All property owners in the village
(and elsewhere in the Keys, for that matter) will either pay for
expensive on-site systems or they'll pay their share for a cen-
tralized system, but everyone's going to pay.

Meeting sewer mandate really relies on residents


EDITOR:
As a lifelong Islamorada resident, I have
mixed feelings about wastewater becoming a
hot campaign issue. I am pleased because I
think it is the most serious issue our community
will ever face. I am disappointed because of the
flow of sound bites and partial information.
This is a very complex issue that, after 10
years, I am just beginning to understand. I
would like to paraphrase four of the statements I
have heard over the past month and use them to
try to clarify the issue.
+ The council is gambling with our future.
The 2010 wastewater standards are an indi-
vidual, not a governmental, requirement. The
council has been put in a difficult position
because it has been asked to help meet the stan-
dard without costing residents money. I have
sympathy for the council's plight and can see
why more hasn't been accomplished.
+ This is an unfunded mandate.
While this sounds good, I don't think it fits
this situation. The 2010 standard is an individual
standard, like permitting fees or Federal
Emergency Management Agency downstairs-
enclosure mandates. It may seem arbitrary and
unfair, but still requires compliance or there will
be consequences for noncompliance.
I believe there is sentiment both at the state
and federal level that we should get some finan-
cial assistance but it is unrealistic to expect any


help at this time.
Placing the burden on the residents isn't
right.
A village-financed system has a life
expectancy of 20 to 30 years. In that time, all
package plants and on-site systems would have
to be replaced or upgraded at least once simply
because of age. Additionally, any home
improvement that needs a permit will likely
require on-site system upgrading.
Cost estimates for 2010-compliant on-site
systems are $15,000 to 30,000. The monthly
payment on $15,000 at 6 percent over 30 years
is $90. The burden each of us faces with a vil-
lage-financed system is the difference between
what we would pay on our own and what we
would pay with a village-financed system. With
economy of scale, possible grants and/or sales
tax opportunities, that burden may even be a
savings.
+ We are working on some things. We need
more time.
The package-plant owners need action now.
They are already being asked to bring their sys-
tems under compliance. They will all have to be
in compliance by 2010. Then, if we have a cen-
tralized wastewater system, they will have to
hook up. It is imperative that the package-plant
owners get relief from paying twice.

This Gambian rat thing has gone to far


EDITOR:
Coconut palms have been cut on Bahia
Honda. A prescribed bum is scheduled for Big
Pine Key. Poison-baiting for Gambian rats will
be repeated and repeated on Grassy Key.
Turbine hydropower is proposed for the Bahia
Honda channel even though solar energy. is
plentiful in the Keys, while hydropower is not
yet even used in Washington County, Maine,
which has 30-foot tides and arguably the most
ferocious currents in the United States. There
are controversial and suspect projects launched
and on the agenda weekly in the Keys.
Here on Grassy Key, poisoning in this fragile
environment may continue indefinitely.
Poisoning began again last week. There is
almost no chance that every mating pair of
Gambian rats can be eliminated. In the first
phase of this $250,000 project, 24 rats were
taken ([at a cost of more than $10,000 per rat?)
to make the world safe for avocados somewhere
else, maybe. The U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service
says a handful of Gambians are left. Didn't we
start with only a handful?
Who decided that the risks were acceptable
for our endangered Florida wood rats, the
smallest raccoons, hawks -searching for mori-
bund mammals and, indeed, a broad spectrum
of both the food and the carrion chain on land
and in our fragile lakes when poison is used?
Will we poison Grassy Key twice a year forever
to keep the numbers at a handful? There is an
alternative.
I congratulated a federal worker on a live
Gambian rat caught in a box trap.last week


using no poison, just cantaloupe in a box trap. I
politely asked if they couldn't rely on these
non-poisonous traps. He replied, "I am the gov-
ernment. I do what I want."
I have worked in 32 countries and as I,
reported for jury duty recently, I thought only in
Soviet Russia have I ever seen such arrogance,
intimidation and secrecy. Where is the trans-
parency, the experts' dialogue, the impartial
data and monitored competence, the integrity,
the trust and the outrage about these high-hand-
ed projects? Where is the press?

Fifth lane is badry needed


EDITOR:
Our family has owned two
businesses in the Key Largo area
for over 25 years and we are dis-
mayed at the fact that the Island
of Key Largo-Federation of
Homeowners Associations has
condemned what it views as a
fifth lane on U.S. 1.
It is bad enough that local
opposition has already prevented a
modem four-lane highway for the
18-Mile Stretch, and now we have
to face the demise of another
much needed -road improvement
just because the got-miners don't
want more traffic. I take issue


with the statements that "it's not
just residents but business people,
as well" and "we haven't found
anybody in favor of it."
Well, that is not true; we are in
favor of it. I hope when a hurri-
cane evacuation is called that
these same residents are not stuck
on the road and blown away or
drowned because of their misguid-
ed intentions.
Please build the fifth lane in
Key Largo and widen the bottle-
neck road in Islamorada.

Evolution has a place in the schools


EDITOR:
I wish to congratulate letter
writer Gary Roberts on his coura-
geous stand against evolution. Just
think, if more people stood up to
Copernicus in 1543, the sun and
all the planets would still be
revolving around the'earth. If they
took away Galileo's telescopes,
the earth would still be the center
of the universe.
Where were all the religious
zealots when they foolishly invent-
ed carbon dating? Of course, we
all really know that the dinosaurs
perished (if they ever really exist-
ed; after all, has any of us really
found a dinosaur bone?) when they
didn't get on the ark.
We all know that the only rea-


son for developing new antibiotics
is to make the pharmaceutical
companies richer. After all, the
bacteria couldn't have evolved.
I'm sure that when Mr. Roberts
gets sick he insists on taking that
good old penicillin.
Why teach evolution? Without
it, we can get rid of biology and
zoology. In fact, if we stick to
Genesis Chapter 1, we can elimi-
nate anthropology, astronomy,
botany, chemistry and paleontol-
ogy.
Let's focus only on the reli-
gious, and not the real world. We
can aspire to be like the Taliban.

It takes a village, and Marathon responds


EDITOR:
On behalf of the board of direc-
tors and the many volunteers com-
mitted to the children and families
who depend on the Grace Jones
Day Care Center for services, we
extend our heartfelt gratitude to
our community for making our
third gala a tremendous success.
We continue to be humbled by
the support in helping us move
forward toward reaching our capi-
tal campaign goal and raising
$42,000 through this year's event.
The businesses and individuals
that donated items for the auc-
tions, the guests who attended and
the volunteers whose gallant
efforts in making this year's gala
such a success validate that
Marathon is the heart of Florida
Keys.
A special thanks is extended to
Cal Sutphin, who hosts WFFG's
"Reelin' in the Keys" show, for
reminding our community of the
need and importance of the Grace
Jones Day Care Center. A special


note of gratitude to Nlancy and
David Lunsford, who selflessly
spent their wedding anniversary
donating their time to assure the
gala's success.
Last but not least, a very spe-
cial thanks to the center's guardian
angel, Pritam Singh and the Singh
Co. Pritam underwrote the invita-
tions, provided the beautiful tropi-
cal setting of Tranquility Bay
Resort and the fabulous food and
drinks from the Butterfly Cafe and
the entertainment to assure all
money raised from the event was
donated to the Grace Jones Day
Care Center.
We thank everyone your
belief in the mission of our center
and the future of our children -
and invite you to visit your Grace
Jones Day Care Center to see what
you are helping accomplish and
remind everyone how lucky we are
to live in Marathon. It does take a
village.

We aim for transparency,


so should letter writers


Back in January, we printed a letter to
the editor from Heather Whitfield, a
newcomer to the Keys, questioning
whether the Monroe County Sheriff's
Office should look at if there's a weight
problem with some deputies. Her
words were not mean-spirited but
rather thoughtful, and written merely to
ask about the health of our law enforce-
ment and its ability to protect us.
The day it came out, US1 Radio's
Bill Becker asked Sheriff Rick Roth on
the air if this was a valid issue, and the
sheriff said it is.
Unfortunately, Heather is now being
vilified by some in the com-
munity because someone
else decided to address the
topic in a not-so-thoughtful
letter and attach
Heather's name to the com-
ments.
Apparently the anonymity
we-so strive to keep off these
pages made it through.
When Heather wrote her
letter, I contacted her asking
her address and telephone
number to verify she was the Larry
writer, and she was. I do that Keynot
for nearly every letter; the
frequent writers, I know
their styles and e-mail addresses and
know if their letters are valid..
When the second "Heather
Whitfield" letter arrived, I did not veri-
fy the sender because I assumed and
we know how that goes it was the
same Heather. It wasn't.
The real Heather came into my office
Monday asking what happened, and
she can attest that my face grew white.
I retrieved the second letter and showed
it to her; she said it wasn't hers.
In hindsight, I should have been sus-
picious because Heather's real letter
was sent via e-mail and this second one
was either dropped off or snail-mailed,
and there was no phone or address.
That should have raised a red flag.
In the days the second letter came
out, we've received at least three letters
responding to it. They don't really talk
about deputies' weight, but rather call
into question the writer herself- or
himself, since I have no idea who
decided it was a smart idea to submit a
letter under someone else's name.
It wasn't a smart idea; it was cow-
ardice the writer did not own up to his


or her own words. And because of it,
the real Heather Whitfield has been
taking it on the chin, all because she.
initially raised an issue about which she
had concerns, an issue the sheriff him-
self agrees with.
For all of this, I apologize to the real
Heather Whitfield. To the person who
submitted the second letter under her
name, I say shame on you.
Our readers deserve to know that let-
ters to the editor are written by the peo-
ple whose names are identified at the
bottom of them. These are the readers'
pages, after all, and if even one bogus
missive gets through and
sees ink, all are suspect.
It ruins my day when it
happens, and it should ruin
all of yours, too. Just like it
ruined the real Heather
Whitfield's.


Kahn
er Editor


Speaking of mistakes, I"m
sure all of our readers
caught the doozy on Page 1
of last Wednesday's edition
in a story written by Key
West Bureau Chief Alyson


Crean.
The problem is that Alyson didn't
make the mistake.
If you've lived here any amount of
time, you know that the Gang of Three
refers to Mayor Sonny McCoy and
commissioners Mario Di Gennaro and
Dixie Spehar, the majority voting bloc
on the County Commission.
In that story, which detailed an effort
to put in place a process to recall com-
missioners, an editing not reporting
- mixup had the group as McCoy, Di
Gennaro and Commissioner Sylvia
Murphy. As you can imagine, the
phones were ringing fast and furious at
the Keynoter.
I apologized to Alyson and explained
how the error happened to all who
called; it was a mixup of names on
deadline. We ran a correction on Page 2
in Saturday's edition, since we correct
all errors of fact.
. The Keynoter tries to be as transpar-
ent as possible in how and why we
make decisions, and to explain when
things go wrong. In this case, things
went very wrong on the editing side.

County puts out airport hotel RFPs


By ALYSON CREAN
acrean@keynoter.com

As requests for proposals go
out looking for a developer to
build hotels at Monroe County's
two public airports, County
Commissioner Mario Di
Gennaro reiterates "the county is
not going into the hotel busi-
ness."
The bid requests went live at

the end of last week, posted on
the government bid Web site
called Demand Star.
"The county is seeking sealed
proposals for the development,
construction and management of
two hotels," the proposal reads,
"one located at the Key West
International Airport and the
other located at the Florida Keys
Marathon Airport...."
The idea came from Di
Gennaro last summer after a
developer friend came to him
with the idea, the commissioner
said. At first the County
Commission talked about just
one hotel, sited at Marathon air-
field. Commissioners agreed it
could be a way to get a private
developer to help build a dedi-
cated emergency operations cen-
ter. By tying it into a hotel, it
would provide sleep space for
emergency responders in case of


a hurricane, something the exist-
ing EOC at the Marathon
Government Center cannot do.
Later, however, a hotel at the
Key West airport became part of
the conversation. In December,
the commission voted 4-1 to go
out for bid on the two projects.
Commissioner George
Neugent, the sole dissenter, says
he's not opposed to the idea in
general, but believes the state
Department of Community
Affairs will oppose the added
strain on evacuation times and
density of land use. DCA would
have to approve new develop-
ment at either airport.
County Engineer David
Koppel sent out a draft of the
request for bids last week, but Di
Gennaro says he's keeping it all
at arm's length.
"I'm staying away from the
RFP," he said, "especially since
a friend of mine is involved."
Di Gennaro says the issue is

A fifth contender has thrown
his hat into the ring to replace

with the state Division of
Elections.
"I think with 20 years' prac-

told the Keynoter Tuesday.
"And with her retirement, I can
run for a seat that is not filled
by one of our qualified jurists."

Associates in Tavernier office.


tie harder these days to fill
rooms. But Di Gennaro says the
challenge to compete and fill
rooms is up to the successful
bidders.
The county also has a morato-
rium on building new hotel
rooms, which was renewed in
January for another year. Di.
Gennaro says that's probably not
an issue because any new con-
struction would likely push an
eventual opening date well into
next year.
Bids will be accepted until
June 4.

Key Largo.
Three Key West residents are
also are vying for the seat:
Jiulio Margalli has a private

Manny Madruga is a prosecu-

Traffic checkpoint
called a success

Key West police officers
issued 56 tickets, six criminal
citations and made one arrest for
driving under the influence
Friday during what it calls its
Strategic Traffic Accident
Reduction, or STAR, night.
The main focus was a DUI
checkpoint at Palm Avenue and
North Roosevelt Boulevard. A


total of 247 vehicles went
through the checkpoint from 5
p.m. Friday to 3 a.m. Saturday.
"I think the low numbers
show that people were con-
sciously trying to be safe while
driving that night," Sgt. Frank
Blasberg said. "I know I saw a lot
of taxis around town, which was
great. We don't do STAR nights
to get people in trouble; we do
them to raise awareness, which is
what we did judging by the num-
bers."

Audit critical of college


Vice provost:
State report
is 'dead on'
By KYLE TEAL
kteal@keynoter.com

An annual audit of Florida
Keys Community College con-
ducted by the state Auditor
General's office reveals that over
the 2006-07 fiscal year, the insti-
tution overpaid under-qualified
employees, didn't properly seek
competitive bids for high-priced
purchases and didn't follow prop-
er procedure when hiring
employees.
That fiscal year ended in June
30. The audit represents a college
administration under previous
President Bill Seeker, who retired
July 31 after 27 years in the col-
lege's top job.
"The college's new-hire verifi-
cation procedures did not include
routinely contacting prior employ-
ers to verify employment history
and experience," the audit reads.
"We partially agree with the
findings in that there were
instances that we could have done
a better job in verifying employ-
ment histories," current President
Jill Landesberg-Boyle said. "In
some cases, from what I under-
stand, documentation was gath-
ered but telephone calls to verify
the documents were not made."
She said the college, which is
now in abhiring freeze, takes extra


steps to make sure qualifications
of new hires are valid.
The audit's findings, compiled
by accountant David Martin, also
uncovered that some employees
"paid at the master's/highly tech-
nical level of $478 per credit
hour" or the assistant-instructor
level of $410 per credit hour did
not have the necessary degrees
for those salaries.
Landesberg-Boyle declined
comment on individual personnel.
There were also conflicts that
appeared in staff schedules. A
full-time instructor's pay indicat-
ed the instructor was. getting paid
for office hours while teaching a
class at the same time.
As a result, recently promoted
provost Chuck Shaffer has been
asking staff to submit time sheets
to monitor expenses and pay.
"It's a little different because
the staff fills out time sheets,"
Shaffer said. "The faculty is sup-
posed to maintain a schedule.
Basically I think that there was
some indication that some of
them aren't fulfilling that"
responsibility.
Shaffer, who called the audit
"dead on," said he received a lit-
tle flack from staff members who
felt they were being questioned
as to how they spend their per-
sonal time.
On another front, in purchas-
ing, the college is required to
solicit competitive offers from "at
least three sources for purposes


exceeding a specific threshold."
Through June, that threshold
was $25,000.
"Our review disclosed several
purchases that were made
between July 2006 and March
2007 without benefit of properly
documented competitive selec-
tion process...."
The college's Board of
Trustees approved contracts
ranging from $25,540 to
$286,368 for repairs from dam-
age from hurricanes Dennis,
Katrina and Wilma. Despite some
of the contracts being approved
as "emergency procurements,"
they were approved eight to 17
months after the college was
damaged, the report says. Some
of the repairs included improve-
ments to the theater and external
painting.
Landesberg-Boyle addressed
that concern in a letter respond-
ing to Martin, saying she agrees
with the finding and that emer-
gency claims will go through the
proper channels from now on.
The letter indicates the college
agrees with nearly all of the
audit's findings, while claiming
only partial agreement with con-
cerns about scholarship approvals
and employment verification.
"Initial verification of the pro-
fessional licensure is the respon-
sibility of [the Human Resources
Department], however, making
sure that the licensure remains
current is the responsibility of the
individual department," she
wrote.


City's roosters on the move


Hundreds head
to Eustis farm
near Orlando
By ALYSON CREAN
acrean@keynoter.com ,

The Key West Wildlife Center
is spearheading a rooster roundup
now that it's found a place to
relocate unwanted birds.
Volunteer Director Susan
Prince said it's "rescue, rehab and
release of wildlife, and a halfway
house for wayward chickens."
Monday, more than 400 birds
were shipped to a farm in Eustis,
near Orlando, where they can live
comfortably at large.
"The birds that are real scrap-


pers do especially well there,"
Prince said, "because even the
hawks can't get them."
Prince said a number of main-
land contacts have led to a system
where the birds are also being
adopted out. It seems the nation-
ally renowned Key West gypsy
chicken is highly desirable for
backyard flocks.
"The roosters will be matched
up with some girls and spread out
throughout Central Florida,"
Prince said.
The city of Key West has been
cracking down on chicken-feed-
ing residents, hoping that cutting
off the food source will quiet
them down.
The feral birds are one of the


most contentious critters in the
Keys. Tourists love them; it's not
unusual to see a pale-skinned vis-
itor stopping traffic to aim a cam-
era at a strutting cock.
And a lot of old-timers love
them. They claim the birds are
part of the island city's heritage,
descended, they say, from Cuban
fighting roosters.
Other residents would like to
see them fricasseed or filleted on
toast anything to stop the
sound.
Key West Assistant City
Manager John Jones says the
birds could be a health risk, espe-
cially if a bird flu breaks out in
the U.S.
He says the city is ready to
enforce a 1992 ordinance requir-
ing chickens be caged.

Bridge to open in May


Biggest part
of Stretch work
nearing its end
Construction of the new 18-
Mile Stretch linking Key Largo
to Florida City is on schedule
and the Keys portion of the $300
million project .should open to
traffic before summer, according
to transportation officials.
The 18-Mile Stretch project
is expected to reach a major
milestone by the end of May.
The 1.4-mile, 65-foot-high
concrete and steel bridge over
Jewfish Creek at mile marker
107 is expected to be ready to
accommodate one lane of traffic
in each direction, as is the entire
section of road from the Miami-
Dade County/Monroe County
border at mile marker 113 to the
bridge, according to the state
Department of Transportation.

More bogus money
found in the county

A Marathon woman who
allegedly tried to pay cab fare
with a fake $100 bill on Stock
Island was jailed Friday morn-
ing.
It's the third time since
January bogus money has been
found in the Keys. The other two
incidents were on Big Pine Key
and in Key West.
Deputy Becky Herrin from
the Monroe County Sheriff's
Office said the driver said she'd
picked up Crystal Dinklocker,
30, at a convenience store and
she wanted to be taken to the
Stadium Trailer Park in Key
West.
When Dinklocker tried to pay
the fare with a $100 bill, the
driver said she didn't have
change. The driver took
Dinklocker to McDonald's so
she could buy breakfast and
break the bill. At McDonald's,
the bill was identified as coun-
terfeit and given back to
Dinklocker, Herrin said.
The driver called the Sheriff's
Office. Dinklocker was charged
with possessing a counterfeit bill
and defrauding the driver.

NTSB seeks


pilot's name


Crashed plane
off Key West
still a mystery
Keynoter Staff

The National Transportation
Safety Board has opened an inves-
tigation into the crash of a small
plane off Key West Saturday but
few details were available.
Investigator Jill Andrews,
based in Ashburn, Va., said
Tuesday the agency still doesn't
have the name of the pilot so has-
n't been able to talk with him
about the crash of the Diamond
D-A 40. She said they do have
the plane's tail number and that
it's registered to a Big Pine Key
address but that doesn't mean
whoever it's registered to was
flying it at the time.
The crash happened around 3
p.m. Andrews said reports are
that it happened 11 miles south of
Key West but the U.S. Coast
Guard says it's more like 6 miles.


The Coast Guard received a
call from Naval Air Station Key
West that the plane crashed and
that the pilot has called the Air
Traffic Control at NAS reporting
a Mayday.
The Coast Guard immediately
responded by sending a small
boat from Station Key West to
assist and diverted the cutter
Tornado from Pascagoula, Miss.
Station Key West's small boat
arrived on scene just after a good
Samaritan aboard a 23-foot cen-
ter console called the Un-
touchable picked up the pilot.
The pilot was taken to
Summerland Key and did not
request medical treatment.
Crew on the Tornado searched
the area for the plane and debris
but were unable to locate any-
thing.
Saturday's crash was the
fourth in Keys waters since
December. Two were off
Marathon and one off Key Largo.
No one died in any of the crashes.


Development on 6 month hold


City and DCA
still weighing
court's ruling
By KYLE TEAL
kteal@keynoter.com


With the exception of work-
force housing units, potential
market-rate development proj-
ects in Key West are on hold for
nearly six months while city
officials craft a new ordinance to
regulate how building permits
are issued.
The Key West City Com-
mission on Friday addressed a
Feb. 21 Monroe County Circuit
Court ruling that the rate-of-
growth ordinance, or ROGO,
expired in April 2002. ROGO
permits are allocated by the state
Department of Community
Affairs according to hurricane
evacuation timelines.
"If applications come in
requesting the issuance of new
ROGO allocations, then we'll
have to defer them," Assistant
City Attorney Larry Erskines
said, adding, "We're not talking
about projects for which alloca:-


tions are already in place."
Officials call the halt a stop-
gap measure until a viable ordi-
nance is drafted to regulate
development;
The allocations are required
to obtain building permits and
can be purchased on the open
market for $200,000 or more.
Dan Kolhage and fellow
commissioners decided against
halting affordable housing proj-
ects.
"For us to stop that particular
process.... I think we are hurting
ourselves," he said.
The city's Planning Depart-
ment has claimed a sparse-to-
nonexistent inventory of ROGO
allocations, preventing the com-
mencement of market-rate hous-
ing projects and, in some cases,
low-income housing projects.
Speakers such as Don Morris
told the commission they've dis-
cussed their desires to build
affordable housing with the
Planning Department.
"I've been discussing this for
two years," Morris said. "The
only problem is, you can't get
help."
Morris says he could con-
struct 104 workforce units for a
rental rate of $200 a week. He
also said he received approval
three years ago to build work-
force housing on James Street
but couldn't obtain permits.
But the department and inter-
im City Planner Amy Kimball-
Murley have been conducting on
audit to determine how many


allocations are available. For
affordable units, planning staff
says 160 are available through
the Key West Housing Authority.
Mayor Morgan McPherson
said the city's been trying for
more than two years to count how
many allocations are available.
"The city of Key West has not
been efficient in reporting to the
state since I have been mayor,"
McPherson said.
According to spokesman Jon
Peck, DCA is still reviewing the
ruling and has not yet crafted a
prepared response.
The Planning Department is
short two senior planners and an
administrative assistant.
While Kimball-Murley works
as a part-time interim planner,
officials agreed, the delay in
finding a qualified planner is
costly. City Manager Jim Scholl
said staff has yet to interview a
qualified candidate.
Judge Wayne Miller's ruling
is the result of a lawsuit
Southernmost House owner
Matilde Ramos filed, arguing
she didn't need to obtain ROGO
allocations to operate her 14-
room guesthouse on upper
Duval Street. Miller agreed,
deciding ROGO expired on its
own terms nearly six years ago.
The decision sparked panic
among some developers and
property owners who've pur-
chased ROGO allocations.
Commissioners agreed to
meet for a closed session at 5:30
p.m. March 18 to discuss the
city's legal options.

Credit Union answers lawsuit


Response says
Dolan-Heitlinger
violated policy
By KYLE TEAL
kteal@keynoter.com

Keys Federal Credit Union
has filed a response to former
Chief Executive Officer John
Dolan-Heitlinger's lawsuit
against it, claiming he didn't fol-
low proper employee procedures
and withheld information from
the board of directors. .
"Throughout this whole
process, I've never been given
the opportunity to sit down with
the credit union and express my
concerns," said Dolan-
Heitlinger, who claims he was
fired without cause. "I am fully
confident that by the end of the
day I will be vindicated, and the
Keys Federal Credit Union will
have to honor my contract."
Attorney Alan Rosenthal,
representing Keys Federal, says
the board did inform Dolan-
Heitlinger why he was fired.
Among the claims the credit
union made against. Dolan-


Heitlinger, written by Rosenthal:
He was remiss in alerting
the board of a nonprofit organi-
zation he started.
"As far as I can tell, I have
not found any indication that
that entity passed any assets out
of the credit union assets side,"
CEO Bob Watson said. "But it's
a big outfit and we have quite a
lot of money that moves here,
but that doesn't eliminate the
possibility."
According to state Division
of Corporations records, the
group was called Keys Federal
Employee and Community
Housing Coalition Inc. and was
filed as an official nonprofit May
2007. Those records list the
credit union's vice president of
lending, Charles Bradford, as an
officer and attorney- Jerry
Coleman as a registered agent.
He rented out Keys Federal
property as residential units,
which is in violation of National
' Credit Union Association's regu-
lations.
That association sent Keys
Federal a letter stating it was a
violation, Rosenthal told the
Keynoter.
Dolan-Heitlinger and his
attorney, Robert Weisberg, con-
tend the units above the credit
union's building on Southard
Street in Key West were used for
employee housing.
Dolan-Heitlinger is also
accused of drafting "unlawful
compensation packages for Keys
Federal personnel," the. credit
union's response reads. The
response also claims the pack-
ages were "grossly excessive."


"It relates to incentives in the
mortgage department that are
prohibited," Rosenthal said.
After Dolan-Heitlinger was
suspended in October while the
credit union conducted an audit,
the response claims, he violated
his notice of administrative
leave agreement by contacting
Keys Federal employees while
the "investigation" was occur-
ring.
The response also says
Dolan-Heitlinger. hired Human
Resources Director Todd
German, "who was neither
trained in, nor experienced with,
the administration of human
resources...."
"In my opinion, Todd
German was put in a situation
that he was perhaps not prepared
for, and I believe he suffered as a
result,". Watson said.
The petition also says Dolan-
Heitlinger didn't fully investi-
gate or disclose to the board a
harassment complaint made
against German.
Weisberg said Dolan-
Heitlinger, who was a civil
rights and equal employment
opportunity officer while in the
U.S. Coast Guard, fully investi-
gated all complaints of improper
employment.
"I think the fact that I got my
severance package speaks for
itself," said German, now a
Marine Bank vice president said
"I hope they can settle this with-
out tearing the credit union
apart."
Dolan-Heitlinger was fired in
November, a week after
German. The former CEO seeks
$700,000 in severance.

Bight to add 39 new slips?


If fines paid/
state may OK
the additions
By KYLE TEAL
kteal@keynoter.com

The Key West Bight marina
could grow nearly 150,000
square feet and provide 39 new
boat slips if the state approves
city plans.
The city rents Key West
Harbor's bay bottom from the
state. In 2007, the city paid
$73,054 in rent, or 6 percent of all
wet-slip revenue with a 30 per-
cent discount, according to Port
Project Manager Doug
Bradshaw.
If debts are paid and plans
approved, the city would extend
its submerged land lease with the
state by 10 more years. That lease
would add docks, pilings and
increase marina holdings from
347,708 square feet to 497,501
square feet.
"This is a rolling stone and I
need to get it done," Port Director
Raymond Archer said. "I think
it's taken enough time and effort


to come up with an agreement
and I feel confident that it's a
good package."
With the 39 additional slips,
the bay bottom would accommo-
date 188 slips total.
The city submitted a lease
application to the state Board of
Trustees of the Internal
Improvement Trust Fund, owner
of the bay bottom, and the
Department of Environmental
Protection.
Before any decision is made,
the city needs to dip into reserve
funds to pay the state $21,100 in
past fines linked to blunders from
a previous port operations team.
The fines owed cover con-
struction of seven unauthorized
floating docks, allowing vessels
to moor in restricted areas, ignor-
ing required manatee information
displays and incorrectly installing
new pilings, among other mis-
steps discovered by the DEP in
2004.
Finance Director Roger
Wittenberg advised the city it
should dip into reserves to pay
the fines since it wasn't planned
in the regular budget. According


to city documents, the Key West
Bight Board has $966,701 in
reserves.
The Bight Board approved the
expenditure at its meeting
Tuesday. The City Commission
was to hear it Tuesday night, after

bottom

since 2001.


press time.
The lease began in January
1999, and the city paid $27,270
that year based on square footage.
Slips for commercial boats
equal $25.80 per foot, recreation-
al is $23.09 per foot and transient
is $2.75 a foot for a day, and $40
per foot for monthly rentals.
The Key West Bight area is
constantly busy with boat and


dinghy traffic. Tourists and resi-
dents enjoy waterfront bars and
restaurants.
The City Commission will
also hear plans to expand the
marina before the city's request
goes to the state.
"I feel very confident that
they're going to approve it,"
Archer said. "Its very instrumen-
tal in the success of the Bight."
The city has been renting the
bay bottom with an expired lease
since 2001. Archer, in a letter to
City Manager Jim Scholl, cites
several reasons for the delay in
renewing the lease, including fre-
quent change of DEP personnel,
the city's difficulty obtaining a
correct survey, and hurricanes as
factors.
Archer also said a DEP
regional office in Fort Myers has
returned the proposed lease
numerous times, asking for
"additional information not nec-
essarily requested the first time."

All's well with Wells' roasts


Coffee expert-

Coffee roaster "Island" Joe
Wells doesn't sleep very much -
and not because he downs too
much of his own gourmet coffee.
The Island Joe's Coffee owner
creates and sells high-quality cof-
* fees and is always improving his
-product, doing so late into the


night. Every day but Sunday a
day reserved for his family, Wells
says he's awake until the small
hours of the morning, rising again
early to see his children off to
school.
Family might be the only
thing more important to Wells
than roasting coffee. And his
three children have all learned
some of life's important skills
through coffee roasting, he says.
Trey, now a college sopho-

Brandon, whose initials spell

It's a Zen thing


COFFEE / From 18

ness quite like her brothers; her
dad says soccer is more important
right now. Indeed, he has blown
up a photo of her mid-game to
hang near his small office.
"This is a family business, as
we are partners," he said.
"Roasting coffee is fun and edu-
cational ... [and] has helped keep
our family tight, since losing my
wife and the kids' mother
Elizabeth to cancer almost three
years ago."
When Wells is not tending to
his family, life is all coffee. He
talks about blending beans from
different regions, how soil com-
position, harvesting methods,
storage facilities and shipping
time affect coffee bean quality.
He's fanatical about maintaining
his brand, testing his coffee and
espresso roasts endlessly a prac-
tice called cupping.
Walking around the Southard
Street store in Key West, he'll
chew on roast beans or bend
down to bury his face in the bags
of unroasted beans to inhale their
unique smell.
In his world, Sumatra,
Colombia, India and Papua New
Guinea aren't so much geograph-
ic highlights or cultural hotspots.
Instead, each destination provides
a specific taste less acidic,
more astringent, chocolate tones
or hints of banana, ginger or
cedar. The complex business has
given his kids a concept of hard
work, as well as adding worldly
education to their lives, he says.
The store looks to be nothing
more than a small house from the
outside, or a large shed from the
inside.
The store's contents provide a
dramatic juxtaposition: green
unroastedd) coffee beans in
rugged and comically large
burlap bags sit on one side.
Whirring expensive metal
machinery for roasting, bagging
and grinding sits on the other.
And in between sit tightly sealed
metallic valve-topped bags full of
different blends.
Chickens chase each other
down the street (afid sometimes
across the roof or into the store,
Wells says).
The gregarious owner asks
customers what coffee they like.
"Regular," they always say.
"There's no such thing as regular
coffee," he loudly retorts with a
laugh.
Rut for all his snecialtv


knowledge, the connoisseur
stereotypes do not fit. He's nei-
ther a bookish, tweedy professo-
rial type with a nose for wine, nor
is he a dinner-jacket and leather-
chair cigar aficionado. Wells
speaks about his "island" mantra
with a Memphis drawl, donning a
sweat-through hat covering long
hair atop his tall frame.
He does, though, betray his
passion talking about roasting
temperatures and new clients,
pacing -in a circular motion.
When he says he's checking his
e-mail, he really means he will be
distracted by nearly everything
on the short walk from the store's
single counter to his cramped
back office.
He will talk first about how
different beans smell and why,
then detail the company's newest
product (espresso pods for at-
home cappuccino machines), mail
10 pounds of one blend or anoth-
er, demand tasting of straight
espresso and parlay the compa-
ny's most recent high review.
Reviews seem particularly
important in the roasting world,
not unlike the wine industry.
The Island Joe's Web site
proudly features the ratings of the
company's signature blends,
which typically range in the low
80s and high 90s from Coffee-
Review magazine. The review
numbers out of 100 consti-
tute a "very good" or "outstand-
ing" review, depending on which
side of 90 the review comes in.
Wells loves roasting coffee -
he calls it his "Zen thing." And
where passion flows, so too does
good business. Key West's high
overhead isn't a problem for those
who roast coffee well, he says.
Wells, once owner and man-
ager of a gas station in Marathon,
decided to roast coffee full time.
Why? "Because I couldn't find a
decent cup of coffee," he said.
From there he captured the busi-
ness of restaurants like Cafe

carryout containers and napkins.
To do her part for the environ-
ment at Stouts', 8349 Overseas
Highway, Curry has installed
energy-efficient lighting and
bumped up her recycling efforts.
She uses carryout containers
made of renewable, degradable
sugar cane rather than Styrofoam,
which theoretically takes hun-
dreds of years to break down.
She's also making the switch to
biodegradable straws.
And when her desire to pro-
tect the environment conflicted
with her restaurant's bottom line,

Curry came down on the side of
Mother Nature at the risk of
offending some of her clientele.
"The sugar-cane to-go boxes
are very expensive," Curry said.
"So I had to start charging my
customers for them. I only charge
what I pay for them I'm break-
ing even on it but it was still
tough."
Curry said the majority of her
customers support her green
efforts. Some have even started
bringing in their own mugs to cut
down on the use of disposables
for coffee refills.

But she hit a speed bump recent-
ly when she tried to abandon
Styrofoam in favor of com-

"It's been a little difficult
because not everything worked
like we thought it would," Green
said. '"Unfortunately, some of the
new products melt in the
microwave, and since most of my
meals are made to be reheated
later, that's a big problem."

"Trying to find the best prod-

said.
Leigh Ann Card, owner of
Leigh Ann's Coffee House at

has been the most challenging
component of her green program
so far.
"It's really hard because the
garbage service or the govern-
ment, I guess won't pick up all
the plastic products that are recy-
clable," Card said. "So we're try-
ing to go with biodegradable prod-
ucts instead. I don't know what's
best biodegradable versus recy-
cling. It's a huge question of
what's right and what's wrong."

Another question is how to
deal with food waste. Card has
started composting to cut down
on the amount of trash she con-
tributes to the waste stream, and
both Green and Curry plan to
implement composting pro-
grams, too. Green expects to start
this summer, and Curry would
like to begin immediately.
But Curry says she has had
trouble finding a proper commer-
cial compost bin. While she'd
prefer to buy one locally, she said
no stores stock them so she will
purchase one elsewhere.
Kim Gabel, horticulture agent
for Monroe County Cooperative
Extension Service, said that with
help from a handy friend or two,
Curry could build one herself.
She said compost containers can
be constructed using old wood
pallets or other inexpensive mate-
rials, but the trick is to build them
so vermin can't get inside.
"Critter infestation is always a
consideration, but it would be
especially important to avoid
near a food service establish-
ment," Gabel said.
Sam Sarkas, spokesman for
the Florida Department of
Business and Professional
Regulation's Division of Hotels
and Restaurants, said there are no
specific guidelines or rules about
composting near restaurants.
"It just can't create a sanitary
nuisance," Sarkas explained.
"Obviously, if it smells, or if
there's vermin, or if it leaks and
people can track it into the restau-
rant, then of course we'd have an
issue."
Sarkas said restaurateurs
should communicate with their
inspector to develop a workable
composting plan, as inspectors
"will use their own judgment on a
case-by-case basis, regarding
whether or not [a compost bin] is
properly .contained and main-
tained."
"I wish I could give you spe-
cific measures, but in this new
frontier we just don't have them
yet," he said.
Card said Curry, Green and
other restaurant owners and man-
agers are welcome to come by
Leigh Ann's to check out her
homemade compost bin.
"I invite them to stop by and
see it," Card said. "We've had to
make some adjustments, and I've
learned quite a bit about how to
maintain it. We're moving for-
ward, but we still have a lot of
work to do. We've just got to
kee aoina."

John Huston's classic movie
"Key Largo" has Marathon con-
nections.

film by the Historical

Scriptwriter Richard Brooks


and Huston stayed at Key Largo's
Caribbean Club (then a motel)
while writing and planning the
film.
Film historians say little if
any of the movie -was filmed
locally.
"The movie was filmed in
only 78 days, virtually all on the
Warner Bros. lot, except For a few
shots in Florida used for the
opening scenes," according to
www.IMDB.com, the Internet
Movie Data Base.

and that could be chance."
The motel portion of the
Caribbean Club burned down in
1955.
During Huston's stay at the
Caribbean Club, Tom Hanley
owned it. A bartender on staff was
known as Ziggy.
Hanley later moved to
Marathon and opened Hanley's
Restaurant in a building that still
stands at the south end of
Marathon. Ziggy went with him,
and later opened his own place in
Islamorada.


"Key Largo" tells the story of
a war veteran (Bogart) who
comes to the Keys to meet with
the family of a slain comrade.
While at their hotel, bad guys led
by Rocco (Edward G. Robinson)
show up and proceed to cause all
kinds of trouble. There's a hurri-
cane based on the 1935 Labor
Day storm, and a gunfight at sea,
with Bogart piloting a bullet-rid-
dled boat back to Boot Key
Harbor.

MORE CHOICE

Standard with every auto policy..

It's good to have choices.

Because without them, how can you ever make an informed comparison? .


Frankly, you can't. Which is one more reason Why you should purchase auto
insurance from an independent agency. We represent several insurance
companies, so we're free to recommend the coverage that's better for you.
equally important, we take the time to show you why.


The moral of this story? "A choice of one is no choice at all." So choose a
better way!

Coral Shores'

knee in match
By RYAN McCARTHY

For the second time in a
week, Marathon High School
handily defeated its Upper.
Keys rival Coral Shores rival
on the tennis court.
Marathon won 13 of 14
matches as both the boys and
girls- teams earned victories
Monday on the Hurricanes'
home court.
Canes coach Blake Fry said
the match was "a calamity of
errors" that could get much
worse if the team loses No. 1
player Allison Rhyne for an
extended period.
"Five minutes into the
match she turned her knee
going for a ball. She's going to
see a doctor, but she's
rehabbed and worked hard,
and boom," Fry said. Rhyne
had surgery to replace her inte-
rior cruciate ligament last year.
Dolphins coach Mark
Hooper said he is pleased to
see momentum building on
both the girls and boys team.
"We're a little more than
halfway through the season
and we're starting to gel and
come together as a team.

Coach Andrea Murphy said
she feels the Dolphins had played

stiffest competition they will face


this season in Key West High
School and Westminster
Christian School.
"The girls played well the first
two games, but the Ransom game
was great for us because they're a
competitive team and we were


doing all the little things.
Everything seemed to click and
come together," she said.
Junior Vanessa Sardina
pitched for the first time this year
after missing all of last season
with a shoulder injury.

Wells powers Conchs


Pitcher Yochum
adds to gem
with one-hitter
By DICK WAGNER
Keynoter Contributor

Sophomore Lauren Wells,
the first baseman on the Key
West High School softball team,
knew what she had to do
Saturday afternoon when she
stepped to the plate against
Ronald Reagan's Angela
Tuscana.


"I'm not used to slow pitch-
es, so I scooted up in the batter's
box and waited," Wells said after
hitting two doubles and a triple
- all solidly stroked down the
left-field line to lead the
undefeated Conchs to a 10-0
victory at the Back Yard park.
Because Tuscana's pitches
took so long get to the plate, the
Conchs had to exercise
patience, and no one did that
better than Wells.
"We're used to pitches 58, 60
mph in practice," she said.


At 6 feet tall and built for
power, Wells, with her long.
ponytail spilling from her red
batting helmet, looms as a men-
acing figure to any pitcher,
much less one short in statue
and with little experience.
"Lauren's potential is what-
ever shc wants it to be," coach
David Gootee said. "She can be
a very focused hitter, as well as
a focused player. Basically, she
loves to compete."
Gootee said the best part of
Wells is what fans can't see.

Lady Canes on hot streak


Coral Shores
turns out lights
on the Knights
By RYAN McCARTHY
rmccarthy@keynoter.com

The Coral Shores Lady
Hurricanes softball team carried
momentum from a come-from-
behind one-run win Thursday
over Palmer Trinity into their
Friday contest with Archbishop
Curley. High School, stopping
the Knights 11-1.
The Canes lost five one-run
games last year in finishing 4-
10, but, have already matched
their win total from last season
in just five games. Friday's game
ended after just 4.5 innings due
to the 10-run mercy rule.
"The kids were pretty young
last year and we lost five one-run
games, a record since I've been


coaching. Hopefully we'll learn
how to win those," coach Paul
Grewe said. He co-coaches the
team with Mike Young.
Coral Shores trailed 1-0 after
the first half inning, but respond-
ed with three runs of their own in
the bottom half and seven more
in the second to run away with
the game.
Freshman Michelle Sexton
went 3-for-3 with three singles
and two runs batted in, while
sophomore Lauren Sanchez
went 2-2 with a RBI.
Sophomore Holly Given was
2-for-3 with two RBI and
pitched five solid innings, hold-
ing the Knights to just one hit
while striking out five.
In the bottom of the first,
Andrea Cockerham scored on a
triple from Chelsea Russell to tie
the game. Russell was knocked
in by Given, who eventually


scored on a Sexton single to give
the Canes a 3-1 early lead.
But they really poured it on in
the second.
Lauren Sanchez led off with a
single and Cockerham reached
base on an error. Given singled
home Sanchez and Ciara
Sanchez hit a sacrifice fly to
score Cockerham and make it 5-
1.
Sexton then hit an RBI single,
followed by a two-RBI single
from Rosie Malzacher that made
it 8-1. Shelby Gentes got an RBI
on a fielder's choice and Lauren
Sanchez knocked in the Canes'
final run to make it 10-1. They
eventually won 11-1.
Grewe said the team hopes to
carry its recent momentum out
onto the road this week. The
Canes visited Archbishop
Carroll Tuesday carrying a 4-1
record (results too late for
today's paper) and travel to
Ransom Everglades Friday.


'We couldn't stop the bleeding'


Wild 2 innings
see 8-run lead
just disappear
By DICK WAGNER
Keynoter Contributor

Who would have believed that
an eight-run lead could evaporate
so quickly and with so much
agony?
Certainly not the Key West
High School baseball team.
But that's what happened to
the Conchs Saturday afternoon in
Miami. They led, 8-0, and then,
8-3, before two nightmarish
innings ensued and they ended up
losing, 16-10, to Christopher
Columbus High.
The defeat, Key West's third
in a row on the road, came after a
6-3 loss Friday night to American
Heritage in Plantation.
In that game, against an unde-
feated team ranked fourth in the
country by Baseball America, the
Conchs rallied from a 6-1 deficit
with two runs in the seventh
inning. They then had two run-
ners on with one out, but struck
out twice to end the game.
That late burst appeared to
carry over Saturday as the
Conchs jumped on Columbus for
four first-inning runs, taking


advantage of five walks and time-
ly hits by Kyle Lepine' and
Charlie Walker-Yhap.
Helped by errors and a balk,
they scored four more in the third
and led, 8-0, behind pitcher
Nolan Thomas, who had breezed
through the first two innings.
Columbus got three runs back


The Conchs
left Miami

with a 4-5
record
and fresh
concerns
about the
future.


in the third -and then came two
of the worst innings that Key
West coach Miguel Menendez
could ever recall.
Left-hander Drew Rivera took
the mound for Key West to start
the bottom of the fourth and easi-
ly got the first batter. Ten minutes


later, six Explorers had crossed
the plate, two on a throwing error
by Rivera with the bases loaded.
Two errors by Walker-Yhap at
third base also didn't help.
As bad as the fourth inning
was, the fifth was worse as
Columbus scored seven runs on
six hits against reliever Frankie
Ratcliff to take a 16-8 lead.
"The amount of mistakes we
made in those two innings was
unbelievable," Menendez said.
"We couldn't stop the bleeding.
Someone needed to step up and
make a big play to get us out of
those innings."
After the three-hour travesty,
Menendez had a long talk with
his players, whom he described
as disgusted. "I can't repeat what
I told them," he said.
The Conchs left Miami with a
4-5 record and fresh concerns
about the future.
"We have the talent to play
with anyone, but that is not
enough," Menendez said. "We
need to learn how to win.
Somehow along the way the last
few years we have forgotten how
to win. That is what's holding us
back from becoming a very good
team."
The Conchs were scheduled to
play Tuesday at Belen Jesuit, too
late for the result to be included
in today's paper.


Conchs now 3-0

"Her attitude and approach to
the game makes coaching her so
much fun," he said. "She neyer
complains about anything, and
is always very respectful."
Saturday's game the first
for the Conchs in two weeks -
began at noon, so that by the
time most of the fans arrived, the
Conchs were already ahead, 7-0.
They scored four runs in a
first inning highlighted by a
Jianna Hernandez triple, a dou-
ble by Wells and a sacrifice fly
by Madison Disson.
The Conchs scored three
more times in the second, aided


by a walk, a wild pitch, bunt sin-
gles by Kayla Reams and
Kristen Babich,. and an RBI
double by Wells.
Junior Lindsay Yochum
pitched another strong game for
Key West, striking out nine aad
allowing only one hit, a fourth-
inning single that was the only
ball Reagan hit out of the infield.
Needing three runs in the
fifth to end the game on the
mercy rule, the Conchs gdt them
on a triple by Wells, a double by
Disson and a flurry of Reagan
errors.
Key. West (3-0) played
Tuesday at Monsignor Pace,
with the result not available at
press time.

Baseball Canes blank Country Day


Pitcher Sanders
strikes out 9
in 4-0 victory
By RYAN McCARTHY
rmccarthy@keynoter.com

The Coral Shores High
School baseball team
improved to 3-2 Friday with a
4-0 shutout victory over
Miami Country Day.
Sophomore LaDarius
Sanders pitched 6 1/3 innings
and gave up no runs, five hits,
walked two batters and struck


out nine to earn the victory for
the Hurricanes.
Coach Jeff Meyers said
Sanders pitched a great game,
reaching 84 on the radar gun
with his fastball.. He also
mixed in a slider and curve-
ball.
Coral Shores didn't exactly
light it up offensively, as
Meyers pointed out, but capi-
talized on its opportunities.
"We didn't hit too well, but
we bunched our hits and
scored some runs," Myers
said. Miami Country Day "is


much improved and very well-
coached."
The game remained score-
less until the bottom of the
fourth, when a Steven Fowler
RBI single put the Canes up 1-
0. Senior Chris Noble led off
the inning with a single, stole
second and moved to third on
a fly ball out. He eventually
scored on Fowler's single.


Fowler finished 1-for-2
with two RBI and Noble had
two hits and an RBI.
In the sixth inning, Ryan
Biondoletti led off with a walk
and Noble doubled to put run-
ners on second and third base.
Sophomore Bobby DePaula
doubled to score Biondoletti
and Noble and eventually
scored on a Fowler sacrifice


fly.
Sophomore Austin Bynum
finished the last inning in
relief of Sanders.
Coral Shores was scheduled
to play Ransom Everglades
Tuesday (results not available
at press time.)The Canes host
North Brown Prep at 4 p.m.
Wednesday at Founders Park
in Islamorada.

The young Key West High
School track team made a
respectable showing at
Friday's 20th annual Angelini
Relays at Doral Academy in
Lauderdale Lakes.
The Conch boys finished
sixth among 20 teams and the
girls team was 10th among 19.
Sophomore Phillip Young,
who has emerged as one of the
school's best athletes, was
impressive in the relay events,
coach David Perkins said.
Young, along with junior
Shea Reger, junior David Lee'
and senior Andres Garcia, was
on the 4x400 team that finished
fourth with a time of 3:30.63,
14 seconds behind winning
Monsignor Pace.
The Conchs were third in
both the 4x110 shuttle hurdles
and the 1000 sprint medley.

Murphy said.
Freshman Kelley Struyf and
sophomore Shelby Kuck each hit
home runs, as the Dolphins put
the game out of reach early with
seven first-inning runs.
"We got ahead really early and
stayed strong throughout the
game," Murphy said. "They have
a really young team and pitcher
so after the first [inning} we knew
it wouldn't be close."
Murphy said it was good to
have every player get some valu-
able game experience.
Saturday, junior Megan
Gardner pitched a complete
game, striking out six Raider bat-
ters.
Struyf had another big game
for the Dolphins, going 3-for-4 at
the plate with three singles.
Kuck, Sardina and senior Alexis
Culver all went 1-for-4 with an
RBI.
The Dolphins scored in the
top of the first to make it 1-0 and
held onto that lead until the third,
when they piled on three more
runs.


The Raiders scored twice in
the bottom half of the fifth
inning, but the Dolphins scored
twice in the sixth to pad their
lead.
Murphy said junior Sarah
Melia played well defensively,
making several key stops at sec-
ond base.
"Anytime they had runners on


with two out she came up with
the play," Murphy said.

Keys Fishing


Offshore
A private captain running
out of Bud 'n Mary's Marina
in Islamorada called in with
the first blue report of the
season. The fish was caught
about 2 miles offshore of the
Islamorada Hump. It was
estimated at 250 pounds and
ate a live bonito slow trolled
behind the boat. *

Reef
The sailfish catches seem
to wax and wane with the
weather, with a few good
days and a few slow days
this past week. There will
-still be good sailfish activity
for probably a month until
captains turn their glare
toward the dolphin.
The king mackerel action
is good. according to Capt.
Paul Johnson on the Reelf
Runner out of Whale Harbor
Marina. He's been getting
his limit of kings on hve bal-
lyhoo trolled deep in the
130- to 160-toot depths.
Hitting the bottom \\ ith the
lead and winding up about
fihe or sL\ turns is the stan-
dard method for the kingfish.

Gulf, bay
Look for tripletail on the
crab buoys on your way to
the mackerel grounds. The
,ieipletail (one of the tastiest
fish going) are close to the
surface just down tide of the
Styrofoam buoys.
Slow down and loss a hIe
shrimp close to the fish and
see him roll out and eat the
bail. When hooked, the
tripletail will jump like skip-
ping a rock. Just keep him
away from the trap line and
make sure they are over 15
inches at two per person per
outing.

-- Flats, backcountry
Close to home, Capt.
Dave Atkinson on his skiff
out of Whale Harbor tells of
a half-day trip where his
clientele released four bone-
fish. His secret: Put the boat
in an ambush area and cast
four shrimp-baited hooks out
around the boat.

First-time repeat champions of the 10th annual Leon Shell Memorial are Capt. Shelby
Bentley (holding larger trophy), mate D.J. Luppens (smaller trophy) and the crew of the 'Main
Attraction II' out of the Key Colony Beach Marina. Their three sailfish releases earned them
$25,000 over the two-day event.


Victory is twice as nice


'Main Attraction'
repeats as champ
in Shell tourney

-The more things change, the
more they stay the same.
The 10th annual Leon Shell
Memorial Sailfish Tournament
wrapped up Sunday, finishing off
a trying and windy two days of
fishing. The organizers of the
Leon Shell, held all 10 years out
of the Key Colony Beach Marina,
wanted to take the next step, going
from a nice local tournament to
that of one to rival some of the
world-class events in the Keys.
As I've said before, if you
bring the money in this case
$25,000 guaranteed for top boat
honors you will attract the
anglers. It looks like it worked to
the tune of 26 boats and 110
anglers.
With the most recent cold
front from the northeast blowing
in last Wednesday, teams were
optimistic for a positive change
in the unusually slow sailfish
conditions. Unfortunately that


Would not
be the case,
as the Day
1 board fin-

v releases for

field.
Day 2
didn t
prove
much bet-
ter, as the
Cal Sutphin combina-
tion of 6- to
8-foot seas and 20-knot winds
kept kites and rigs scattered. Two
captains said at the awards cere-
mony at Sparky's Landing in Key
Colony Beach they actually had
kites break free and get lost. So
Day 2's releases faired only
slightly better, with 11 sailfish for
the field.
Sunday morning, the team of
the Main Attraction II, captained
by Shelby Bentley and mate D.J.
Luppens, wasn't very optimistic.
"After Saturday and losing the
only sailfish we saw, we just want-
ed to get on the board. Luckily the


top boat after Saturday had two
sails and there was no reason to
believe that it would be a hot bite
on Sunday, so we just kept our
cool," Bentley said.
Jim Snyder of Richmond, Va.,
who ended as runner-up, said he
knew Bentley wouldn't get shut
out. "We've fished and won this
tournament with Shelby and the
guy is all business."
Snyder was right.
At 3:30 p.m. Sunday, when
lines were out, Bentley could
finally breathe easier. His third
fish actually all three came
before 10 a.m., which left a lot of
breath-holding for the Main
Attraction II crew.
"I think I went through four
packs of cigarettes listening to the
VHF hoping no one else would
get hot. After 3:30, it was a great
ride back to Key Colony,"
Luppens said.
The ride was also made easier
as they were $25,000 richer and
the first repeat champion in the
10-year history of the Leon Shell.

Use the wind rather than fight it


Free seminar
shows how to
optimize time
Here we go into month No. 3
of 2008. Have you caught all the
kings and mackerel you wanted
so far? If not, you had better get
a move on because things will
change sooner than you think.
The only thing holding most
anglers back have been the days
when you could not get .out due
to the winds. I have help.
This week's free fishing sem-
inar at our Marine Educational
Center will focus on working the
winds. We'll cover the different
venues of the Keys-and just when
is right to work each one even if
the winds are well up. It can be

done, and
comfort-
ably, if you
have the
knowledge
not to get
your fanny
kicked.
The free
fishing
seminar is
at 6 p.m.
Thursday at
the store,
mile mark-
er 50 bay-


side.
Now, the waters have warmed
and the fish are all over in most
areas, and new species are com-
ing into the area as the weeks go
by. Bonefish were almost impos-
sible to find during the cold spell
in January and early February but
now are around in tremendous
numbers. This should continue
and even improve as we move
through March.
Tarpon have been making
more and more of an appearance
throughout the usual venues,
with quite a few around the
bridge channels during the right
conditions. They, too, have been
more numerous on area flats,
working mostly along the edges
chasing pilchards. A live crab
will surely get one's attention
should the opportunity present
itself.
The offshore picture has a


huge mix of species available.
With each passing day of a hint
of a southerly wind, dolphin have
become more numerous. Some
large fish have been caught late-
ly along with the appearance of
good-sized schools rather than
just a few fish showing up at a
time.
Sailfish activity really turned
on late last week; We should be
coming into the spring flood of
sails very soon. And kings are
still full along the reef edge along
with many mixed tunas and boni-
ta. It's a good time to be working
the edge.
Offshore of that, the best loca-
tions have been from 550 to 620
feet of water for wahoo and most
of the dolphin. Later in the after-
noon, 300- to 450-foot depths
have been active for dolphin and
sails. Look for either bird or bait
fish activity and work the area.
There has been enough action to
keep most anglers busy.
For those who are adventur-
ous, head well out and find some
of the big billfish that have been
around the past couple of weeks.
Blue marlin as well as several
white marlin have been found
from 20.to 30 miles south, most-
ly around passing schools of
tuna.
If you get a small tuna on,
don't be in a hurry to bring it in;
you may find that you will be
productive with your instant live
bait. I have experienced some of


this activity lately and can tell
you there are quite a few billfish
around these passing schools.
The area well offshore has
had quite a bit of debris floating
through. This has produced a few
big dolphin and some very nice
wahoo. There have not been too
many anglers working this area
though because it has been some-
what rough, or most that will
head out this distance only think
of going to the hump.
For most, the Marathon hump
is the holy land of the ocean, the
only place they go when going
well offshore this time of year.
This area has been pounded on
nice days so much that the aver-
age tuna has been less than 5
pounds the past several weeks.
There are more tunas due south
than on the hump right now, and


much bigger ones. The key is to
go the distance and keep the faith
as well as a keen eye out.
These schools of tuna you
find well offshore are not work-
ing around one area like the
hump. They are on the move, and
I mean fast. Don't try to keep up;
get in front of them with the boat.
The boat doesn't catch them, the
lures do.
There have been quite a few
schools of yellowfin tunas mov-
ing through, too. If you hook one
of these, hang on you're going
to be there a while. Most of the
ones lately have been 60-pounds-
plus.

Keys Fishing


Triple takes Poor Girls


'Hattatude'
victory is a
family affair
- A triple hook-up and an
adrenaline rush sparked by a
fish that tried to "catch" an
angler were among the high-
lights of the 19th annual Poor
Girls Billfish -Tournament
Feb. 20.
First place went to the
Hattatude team out of
Islamorada's Holiday Isle, guid-
ed by Capt. Ronnie Brack and
his 22-year-old son Daniel
Brack, the self-proclaimed "co-
executive cockpit coordinator,"
or mate.
4 Team Hattatude scored an
early triple hook-up and suc-
cessfully landed all three sail-
fish by 9:30 a.m. Anglers were
Terry Brack of Islamorada, who
is Ronnie Brack's wife and
Daniel Brack's mother, her sis-
ter Kristine Brack and niece
Tammy Blackwell of Clewiston,
both newcomers to sailfishing.
"It was awesome I lost


track of time concentrating on
what I was doing," Kristine
Brack said after catching a 65-
pound sailfish that contributed
to the win.
Terry Brack has been the
tournament's grand champion
angler twice in previous years,
and placed in the top three every
time she has fished the event.
Even with her experience, it
took some complicated maneu-
vering for the teammates to cap-
ture all three fish.
"The first one got caught in
the teaser and the second and
third sailfish did a wrap on each
other the left went to the
right, the right went to the left,"
Daniel Brack said.
Second-place honors went to
the Hooked Up with Capt.
Zehntner Gay out of the World
Wide Sportsman in Islamorada
who fished with his wife,
Samantha Coumoyer, and Kelly
Farr of Tavernier. Each woman
released one sailfish from a dou-
ble hook-up, but one fish almost
refused to stay released.


"That mean monster Kelly
caught tried jumping back in the
boat," Coumoyer said. "He was
after her."
Third-place honors for two
hook-ups went to another hus-
band-wife-friend team. Capt.
John Oughton, aboard the Pretty
Work out of Bud n' Mary's
Marina in Islamorada, guided
his wife, Andrea Oughton,
Jennie Mears of Islamorada and
Tracey Collins of Ocean City,
Md.
The grand champion angler
award went to 15-year-old
Alexie Creary of Key Largo
aboard the Yabba Dabba Do
with Capt. Steven Leopold.
Creary released two sailfish.
First runner-up and largest
tuna awards went to Sharon
Mahoney of Islamorada. Janet
Crane of Tavemier was second
runner-up.
The tournament attracted 90'
female anglers aboard 35 boats,
who scored with 37 hook-ups
and 21 releases. Proceeds from
the event were split equally
between three local charities.


All-Tackle targets bones


Awards to be
given out in
four divisions
The demanding Islamorada
All-Tackle Spring Bonefish
Tournament is set to kick off
March 25 with an anglers' meet-
ing and cocktails beginning at
6:30 p.m. at the Islamorada
Fishing Club, mile marker 82
bayside in Islamorada. Dinner is
to follow at 7:15 p.m.
The tournament's fishing days
are March 26 and 28. The chal-
lenge is limited to 25 invited
anglers, with a maximum of two
anglers plus guide per boat.
The All-Tackle grand champi-
on's award awaits the angler who
accumulates the most points by
combining releases with weight
fish caught using any of four
classes of tackle.
The general division is essen-
tially a bait class, with no restric-
tions on rod, reel or bait except
for a prohibition against power
reels.
The plug-casting division is
for conventional rods and reels
and bait-casting gear.


A spin-casting division serves
anglers who favor spinning rods
and reels.
The fly-casting division limits
anglers to single-action reels and
eight- or 10-pound tippet.
Scenting and tipping of flies or
artificial lures are prohibited.
All non-fly tackle classes are
to be limited to 10- or 12-pound
line. The official line must be
obtained and spooled at the.
World Wide Sportsman, mile
marker 81.6 bayside, in
Islamorada. Ten spools are to be
furnished at no cost to registered
anglers, with additional line
available for purchase.
Chumming is not permitted
under any circumstances.
The prestigious All-Tackle
championship is to go to the
high-point angler who catches at
least one bonefish in all four
tackle divisions and one or more
weight fish in at least two divi-
sions.
For more information on invi-
tations and entry fees, call 852-
1694 or send an e-mail to
jabok@aol.com.


Sutphin signs off


SUTPHIN / From 32

out of the Key Colony Beach
Marina consisted of Bentley,
Luppens, Snyder, Peter Bernard
from Richmond, Robert Griffin
of Charlotte, N.C., and Bill Fuchs
of Phoenix, Ariz.
Runner-up in the boat catego-
ry was the Sea Breeze captained
by Bob Taute of Marathon.
Second runner-up boat was the
Silver Queen out of the Key
Colony Beach Marina.
Top angler was Rich Taute
with two releases, winning on
time (he caught his two fish
before others). Runner-up angler
was Snyder and second runner-
up was John Foster of Marathon.
The heaviest dolphin was won
with an 8.8-pound fish registered
by marine artist Joe Suroviec.
Heaviest kingfish was entered by
Capt. Bruce Coles and weighed
20.9 pounds, and largest tuna,
weighing 18.1 pounds, was won
by Don Hiller of Marathon.
When it was all done, $35,000
was presented by Shell's widow,


Lois Shell, to Hospice of the
Florida Keys/Visiting Nurse
Association, and was accepted
with a resonating, "Oh my good-
ness!" from Director Liz Kern. In
the nine years prior, $60,000 total
was raised for Hospice.
It looks like the Leon Shell
has arrived and helped put
Marathon back on the tourna-
ment map.-


Just a quick note to the listen-
ers of my morning show on
1300-AM WFFG, "Reelin' in the
Keys."
For more than four years, I
have loved entertaining you-with
now some of my closest friends. I
have decided to step down and
leave the show, which I am cer-
tain will be left in capable hands.
I will still be involved with Joe
Nascone and Keys Radio Group
and know my relationship with
the many listeners will not end.
I thank Joe for what I have
always called the best job anyone
can ever want.
