Another



election



in village


2 incumbents win,
Borski elected but
Boerner in runoff
By KRISTEN BURNIE
kbumie@keysreporter.com

Following an election
Tuesday in which four of the five
Islamorada Village Council seats
were up for grabs, two incum-
bents are returning to serve addi-
tional terms on the council.
But there will be a runoff in
the Seat 3 contest, where incum-
bent Mayor David Boemer got
43.5 percent of the vote, not
enough to avoid a runoff with
challenger Jim Rhyne, who tal-
lied 29.2 percent. David Purdo,
the third candidate in that Seat 3


race, came in last with 27.3 per-
cent.
The election was the first in
Islamorada's history in which the
terms of all five council members
came to a simultaneous end.
A Seat 3 winner will be
declared following a run-off elec-
tion next month.
Returning to the council are
retired trucking company owner
Don Achenberg and marina
owner Michael Reckwerdt, and
former nonprofit administrator
Cathi Hill, who was the only
uncontested incumbent.
Joining the council for the first
time is Jill Zima Borski, a local
writer and former public infor-

"He gave his resignation for

"There are some stipulations
which are still being worked on
at the moment."
"I understand that [Interim

new initiative in the Keys, they
could also help provide a col-

Key Colony Beach voters on
'Tuesday returned Tucker
DeGraw to the City Commission
and sent political newcomer
Geraldine Zahn to the dais, as
well, for the next two years.
I DeGraw, a member of the City
Commission from 2002 to 2006,
when he lost his re-election bid,
received 200 votes, or 31.15 per-
cent. Following was Zahn with
180 (28.04 percent), Cabana
Breezes owner April Tracy with
145 (22.59 percent) and Steven
Fldod with 117 (18.22 percent).
According to the Monroe
County Supervisor of Elections
Office, Key Colony Beach has
814 registered voters. There were
362 ballots returned for a turnout
of 44.4 percent. Voting is at-large,
meaning the two candidates who
get the most votes for the open


seats are elected.
The race was wide open since
incumbent Arline Carbin decided
not to seek re-election and Mayor
Clyde Burnett ended his cam-
paign last month to concentrate on
trying to get the job of Marathon
city manager. He had won re-elec-
tion three times since being
appointed to an open seat in 2000
- and received 12 votes Tuesday.
DeGraw has been active in the
community since moving here 18
years ago.
DeGraw has been president of
the Key Colony Beach Com-
munity Association, part of the
fishing and boating club and was
awarded, along with his wife, the
Hall of Fame award for service to
the city.
Zahn has been a homeowner in
Key Colony for 10 years and a
full-time resident for four. She and


her husband ran a commercial
vending business in New Jersey
for 45 years prior to moving here.
Zahn, .who serves as chair-
woman of the city's Recreation
Committee, said she feels her
business and management expe-
rience will be helpful to the com-
mission.
Tracy ran on a platform that
Key Colony Beach needed a fresh
point of view and that her business
experience makes her familiar
with issues facing the city. She's
an 11-year resident though her
family has lived in the city for 28.
Flood has been in Key Colony
Beach for three years, the shortest
of any of the candidates. He said
he had not been satisfied with
"decisions coming out of City
Hall" and wanted to become
more involved in city business.
The seats of Vice Mayor Ron
Sutton, Jeff Vorick and Rusty
Stevens will be up next year.


Achenberg, Reckwerdt reelected


VILLAGE / From I

mation officer for Islamorada.
In the race for Seat 3, Boeruer,
with 777 votes, received more
votes than his two challengers but
came short of the simple majority
required to return to the council.
Boemer faces hotelier Rhyne,
who got 520 votes, beating out
fishing captain Purdo, who
received 488 votes.
Rhyne is a member of
Islamorada's Water Quality
Advisory Committee, which
recently recommended the vil-
lage secure a $115 million bond
to fund the construction of waste-
water treatment systems.
The issue proved to be per-
haps the most divisive campaign-
ing point between Rhyne and
Boerner.
Boerner, who voted against
securing the bond, said he sup-
ports moving forward with
wastewater projects, but not
without funding support from the
state or federal governments.
In the other seats:

Seat I
Achenberg defeated Paul
Bates, 1,045 votes to 731 votes.
Achenberg, who was appoint-
ed to seat one in 2006 after then-
Councilwoman Patty Schmidt
stepped down, campaigned that


during his time on the council,
he's saved the village thousands
of dollars, and has pushed for
accountability from village staff
and from outside consultants.
Bates, the owner of the
Coconut Cove Resort on Windley
Key, ran a campaign that focused
largely on Achenberg's faults.
Bates said he supports lowering
fees and taxes, and that
-Achenberg has repeatedly voted
to raise both.

Seat 2
Zima Borski topped Rod
Halenza, 1,005 votes to 760 votes
The race for Seat 2, which was
vacated by Councilman Chris
Sante, was the only one not to
include an incumbent. Sante has
filed to run for property tax
appraiser in November.
Both Halenza and Zima-
Borski campaigned that the vil-
lage needs stronger fiscal man-
agement.
Zima Borski said she'd push
for more goals and accountability
from the village manager and vil-
lage staff.

Seat 3
This is the runoff between
Boerner and Rhyne.
Boerner campaigned that
under his lead, the current coun-
cil has made significant progress
in imnlementinp affordable hous-


ing, development regulations,
and wastewater treatment sys-
tems. He said he supports moving
forward with wastewater proj-
ects, but not without funding
from the state.
Rhyne said Islamorada should
go it alone by securing a $115
million bond to fund wastewater
treatment systems, and called for
changes in how the council inter-
acts with it's staff and with the
public.

Seat 5
Reckwerdt easily defeated
Ron Levy 1,113 votes to 649
votes.
During his campaign, Levy,
who served one term on the orig-
inal council and was the village's
first mayor, criticized the current
council for poor planning and for
failing to make progress on
wastewater treatment systems.
He said the village must move
forward with wastewater funding
immediately, with or without
state assistance.
Reckwerdt opposes funding
wastewater systems without state
assistance, and openly accused
Levy, Rhyne and Zima-Borski of
running as a threesome who
would adopt a borrow-and-spend
policy, and vigorously hammer
through a monumental bond
issue for wastewater."

E-mail

raises

huff
By KEVIN WADLOW
Senior Staff Writer
kwadlow@keynoter.com
Islamorada Village Council
candidate Dave Purdo says an e-
mail he sent was intended as
"lightweight, political fun."
Bill Kelly, a supporter of
Purdo's opponent the municipal
election that took place Tuesday,
says altering his endorsement let-
ter may be a violation of state
election law.
"He altered my letter and I
resent it,"'said Kelly, who backed
incumbent councilman Dave
Boerner (see results, Page 1).
"He could respond to my letter
however he wanted, but to send it
out this way was bad."
Kelly sent a Sunday e-mail to
his acquaintances citing what he
views as the council's accom-
plishments during Boerner's first
term.
"Dave Boerner stands for
controlled growth," the letter
concluded. "He will protect
working waterfronts and he's
good for our community."
Purdo got a copy of the e-mail
and inserted his own comments
in parenthesis, criticizing the lack
of progress on some projects
("...not one brick laid...") and
said Boemer was "micro-manag-
ing" village staff.
Purdo said he did not intend
for anyone to think that Kelly
made his comments.
"As far, as I'm concerned,
everything I said is the truth,"
Purdo said.
Kelly said he labeled his letter
as an in-kind donation to. the
Boerner campaign and as such,
the altered version could mislead
any recipients.
"Obviously, neither I nor Mr.
Boemer would have approved or
paid for the atrocious allegations
and language used in the version
now being circulated by David
Purdo," Kelly wrote in a letter to
the Monroe County State
Attorney's Office.
Kelly said he intends to file a
complaint with the Florida
Elections Commission.
"I think this is terrible," Kelly
said. "Needless to say, at the very
least it's tasteless."

ations. Instead, I listen to our
administrator and our counsel
and make my decisions that
way.",
"Things are afoot that I
don't choose to comment on
today," Hinnant said Tuesday.
Word around the county


was that Frederick asked for
Hinnant's resignation because
he had violated county policy,
specifics of which no one
would address.
"There's something in the
works," Frederick said, "but I
.can't comment until later."
Hinnant was hired last sum-
mer at a salary of $118,000,
replacing acting Chief James
Callahan. Callahan assumed

the duties for Clark Martin Jr.,
who fell ill in mid-2006.
When Martin officially
resigned a year ago, Callahan
took on the title of acting chief
until Hinnant was hired Aug.
15.
Despite encouragement to
apply for the position full-
time, Callahan never did.
"I think Callahan will step
into the breach once again,"
Murphy said. "And at that
point we will decide what we
are going to do."
Hinnant has a contract with'
the county that ends in 2011.
According to its terms, the
county can cancel it with
cause with 15 days' notice and
without cause with 30 days'
notice.
Commissioner George
Neugent said he was a little
surprised to hear from
Frederick, as he has not heard
any complaint about Hinnant's
job performance.
According to Neugent, one
of the stipulations of
Hinnant's voluntary resigna-
tion is that he be allowed to
stay on until the end of June.

with that," Neugent said.
He was concerned, though,
that the contract is being
ended outside of a County
Commission meeting.
Until a timeframe is estab-
lished, the commissioners
were not comfortable with
speculating on what happens
next.
"This is a very important
job," Murphy said. "As far as
that goes, the sheriff and the
fire chief are the two positions
that garner the most attention.
They need to be above
reproach."
Hinnant was chosen from
66 applicants reviewed by a
selection committee compris-
ing local fire officials and
county management.
Under his contract, Hinnant


would be eligible for a 5 per-
cent merit salary increase and
was provided a vehicle as well
as standard county employee
benefits including health
insurance. He also received a
$5,000 moving reimburse-
ment; he moved to the Keys
from Boynton Beach in Palm
Beach County.
Hinnant's past experience
includes a stint as a consult-
ant, an adjunct professorship
at Indian River Community
College in Fort Pierce and two
years as an area coordinator
for the Florida Division of
Emergency Management.
Prior to that, he worked as
operations chief for the Palm
Beach County Division of
Emergency Management.


Lectures going online


COLLEGE / From I

The program, called iTunes
U, started last spring and has
made free lectures available to
those interested in viewing or
hearing instructors from well-
known institutions such as the
University of California-
Berkeley, Penn State, Duke apd
the Massachusetts Institute of
Technology.
At the Keys college, local
instructors' lectures would be
taped and uploaded to iTunes for
students to hear or watch. It
would provide students who
can't always attend lectures an
opportunity to catch every class.
"We're looking for new ways
to disseminate education,"
Shaffer said. "We have a number
of students who can't be in lec-
ture every week single moth-
ers, nurses. They can have the
face time with a professor with
this."
All lectures would be avail-
able in a student-restricted por-
tion of the Web site, and some
lectures would be available for
free, Shaffer said.
"It gives us a lot of umph in
advertising," Shaffer said. "They
have every hour a huge number
of people log onto iTunes."
According to Shaffer, under
the plan, FKCC students who
would take a class with an online
component and would want to
view or hear the lectures would
pay a $24 flat fee. The lectures


would be available via the Web
24 hours a day, seven days a
week.
Students who want to review
lectures to study would also
have that option to rewind their
professor and hear it all over
again.
A built-in program would
check attendance, though it
wouldn't prove that students are
actually paying attention to the
lecture a difficult task even in
person, Shaffer admits.
While it's to post media on
iTunes U, the change will still
cost "several thousands of dol-
lars" to buy cameras and other
technology to make video and
audio of lectures available for
downloading, Shaffer said.
The college currently uses
Design2Learn, or b2L, as an
online learning management
system but its video posting
ability is limited, whereas
iTunes U can support full, one-
hour lectures, Shaffer said. He's
used the program as a biology
professor, before he became
provost.
Barry Adams, an instruction-
al consultant at Apple, has been
talking to college staff to help
the college get the program
online, Shaffer said.
"You can't ignore the fact the
Internet is the way everything is
going to be administered in the
future," FKCC Board of
Trustees Chairman Ed Scales
said. "Why should education be
any different?"

Keys Opinion


Quick work saves an

incredible performance

Few in the standing-room-only crowd listening to the U.S.
Army Field Band perform knew about the mad scramble that
preceded Saturday's glorious concert in the Middle Keys.
Rainsqualls and high winds made it iffy the 65-piece orches-
tra and chorus could perform as planned at the Marathon
Community park open-air amphitheater..
City Manager Mike Puto and Parks and Recreation Director
Jimmy Schmidt had a contingency plan. With help from
Marathon High Athletic Director Theresa Konrath and Principal
Harry Russell, the decision was made at 12:15 p.m. to relocate.
The Army Band's advance team helped city staff and school
administrators get the lights and sound system working in the
nearly finished auditorium. Keynoter Editor Larry Kahn alerted
radio stations, and city staff posted the venue change on sand-
wich boards at both entrances to the park.
The concert began without a hitch at 3 p.m. and with a
full house, christening the new Marathon High auditorium in a
memorable way.
Backstage, after the performance and two encores, Lt. Col.
Beth T.M. Steele said Marathon's audience was the "most
enthusiastic'' the band has yet encountered on its tour.
It "was even more remarkable when you realize that this
turned" out to be the inaugural performance held inside the new
auditorium," writes School Board member John Dick.
"Congratulations are in order for the many people that made this
possible."
We say encore to that, along with a special salute to the U.S.

We need leadership on sewers

Who pays? How much? How soon?
Those are the three questions that public office holders have
been dealing with on sewers.
Marathon's City Council appears to have reached a break-
through on answers to the first two questions, agreeing last
week to proceed citywide with set hookup fees that spread the
infrastructure costs to every property owner.
But it was a close 3-2 vote.
The council in Islamorada appears further from any consen-
sus. Perhaps Tuesday's election outcome may shape that debate
going forward.
Meanwhile, the state's 2010 mandate to sewer the Keys looms
and taxpayers are looking to leaders who tell it like it is, no false
promises or pretending that Uncle Sam will come riding to our
rescue with cash.
Sometimes the truth hurts.

School District official speaks up for all


EDITOR:
This letter is in response to Publisher Wayne
Markham's column, "Bluster can't hide broken
pay scale."
The Monroe County School District's supple-
mental pay system is an issue, but pinpointing
district Director of Accountability and
Assessment Bruce King as the problem without
understanding what he was suggesting makes me
think this was written by people who were listen-
ing just about as well as the School Board was.
King was upset at that meeting where the dis-
cussion took place; he's one of the many adminis-
trators who receive supplemental pay, but does
anyone (including the School Board members)
know why King and other administrators receive
them?
We can't even keep teachers in the schools
because the standard of living is so high in the
Keys, let alone pay new administrators enough
to leave the mainland to perform jobs which
King does for some supplemental pay, but signif-
icantly less than a new administrator would
make.
King does everything within his job descrip-
tion, and takes on additional activities to keep
our district up to par with others in Florida. He
takes on jobs that are an absolute necessity
where the district cannot hire additional employ-
ees. We already are doing more with less. People


who take on these extra responsibilities are sav-
ing money for the district, obviously without the
recognition they deserve.
The supplemental pay scale is not perfect but
it needs to be considered on a person-to-person
basis, not as a group. Claiming School Board
member John Dick's idea of simply tying supple-
mental pay in with a person's regular job
description is not the solution. There is no
thought for the future, and simply making it look
alright will not work.
I am disgusted at the way veteran employees
are being treated. These people have stood the
test of time, been there for the students, and
don't just come into town and leave a year later
because they cannot handle the students or are
not making enough money. -
King isn't speaking for himself; he is defend-
ing each person who goes the extra mile to work
longer hours on additional projects. He wouldn't
care whether he qualified for his own, rightfully
earned supplements under Dick's new plan,
because unlike some, he's not in it for the money
or the popularity; he's in it for the long haul.
He's in it for all students who may pass through
the doors of a Monroe County school. He was
speaking for the people who did not get up and
talk. Anyone who knows Bruce King knows that.

Coin tossers are the cat's meow


EDITOR:
Thank you to the generous and caring
Marathon residents,and seasonal visitors who
donated at the coin toss benefiting Forgotten
Felines. The money collected pays for spay
and neuter operations, food and medical
attention for homeless cats in the community.
This keeps the cats healthier and therefore
they lead a decent life in the colonies.
Forgotten Felines volunteers regularly

Dana's guys are the best
EDITOR:
I would like to let the community know
the great service Dana's Air Conditioning
provided to me.
They installed my new LG tri-unit air con-
ditioning in December 2006. During 2007,
frequent visits were made to service prob-
lems with the unit. Each one was immediate,
including follow-up. Finally, in 2008, with
much correspondence with LG and no solu-
tions to the problem, John Murphy found the
correct person with LG to replace the whole
unit, including labor fees, because it was out
of warranty. As soon as the unit arrived, it
was installed immediately and is working
great. I had no hassle on my part to or from
anyone involved, just good contact and infor-
mation and concern.
Dana guys Larry, John and John are the
best.

females are prevented from reproducing. We
are always in-need of more volunteers to help
with our effort. If you would like to help out
trapping or feeding a colony, please call 743-

Thank you again, Marathon, for your con-
tinued support for the well being of cats who
are not fortunate to have a home. Animal
lovers in the community are very special,

ciated by the cats and volunteers.

Prayers are heartfelt


EDITOR:.
I would like to express my deepest
appreciation to Pastor Keith
LaFountain, the Praise and Worship
Team, the entire congregation at New
Life Assembly of God in Marathon
Church and to those who attended the
service for Mark Travis. I would also
like to thank John Bartus and Jay
Saporito for their personal condo-


lences and heartwarming sentiments.
Mark Travis was admired and loved
by so many people. Mark will be deeply
missed by all who worked, played,
laughed and danced, especially by those
who learned from him and by those who
shared in his passion for music and his
love of sailing. God bless everyone.

Firefighters feel the love


EDITOR:
On behalf of all the members of
the Sugarloaf Key Volunteer Fire
Department, we would like to thank
all of the many supporters of our
42nd annual fish-fry fundraiser.
Our event was a great success
thanks to the support of numerous
corporate businesses, local business-
es, residents, visitors and friends. We
would like to recognize the many
years of support from the Sugarloaf
.Shores Property Owner's Association,
First State Bank, Baby's Coffee,
Michele Adams of TransAtlantic
Wines and the special people that
continuously support the department.
A big thank you to all the talented
musicians that entertained us through-


out the day: Terry Cassidy, Howard
Livingston and the Mile Marker 24
band, More Than 4, Robbie Whitman
and Kate Bryant. A good time was
had by all.
The Sugarloaf Key Volunteer Fire
Department is proud to be the south'-
ernmost all-volunteer fire department.
Our ability to remain a strong, viable
all-volunteer fire-rescue organization
is dependent on the continued support
of our great community. We truly
appreciate all the people and busi-
nesses that donated funds, items or
volunteered their time. It really is an
honor to know such generous people.

New college president raises the bar


EDITOR:
My perspective of the changes and
the history of problems at Florida Keys
Community College stems from work-
ing for the college for 32 years. Under
the new president we are working hard-
er, and more effectively. I feel enabled
and empowered to work creatively.
Outreach to work with local insti-
tutions is central to the new presi-
dent's philosophy of growth through
increased cooperation with local busi-
nesses and the community. Under the
new president, the college has dramat-
ically increased cooperation with the
Dolphin Research Center. Four new
classes in sea-mammal training and a.
program for sea-mammal trainers will
bring new students to the Keys.
Four new classes en route to the
state for approval in the biology, anato-
my, physiology and necropsy of dol-
phins, seals, whales and manatees will
bring students access to opportunities
that are more akin to a large university
than a small community college.
Weeklong classes planned for
Pigeon Key will feature a seascape
watercolor portfolio class, a seascape
digital photography portfolio class
and a Keys literary seminar.
The Museums of Crane Hammock
recently hosted our new president and
key administrators for a wonderful
dinner. Cooperative programs there
include a new class in green living


and design.
A new dual enrollment program at
.Coral Shores High School offers a
class in the identification of corals
and of reef fishes, and a follow-up
class in reef restoration.
This summer's Bandcamp program
will offer dual-enrollment students
from all of the county high schools
the opportunity to take two existing
music classes, a new vocal music
class, and new classes in television
production, hospitality, culinary arts,
and food production science.
New cooperation with external
businesses utilizes their marketing for
our classes. The state has approved
new classes in field biology and field
anthropology to link with programs
about the rainforest and reef; parallel
programs link the college to national
and international programs at national
parks with the Grand Classroom at
Australia's Great Barrier Reef.
The new president brought these
initiatives to. FKCC. A new associate's
degree for probation officers will
allow students to intern for the jobs
they will fill in the county. A new
crossover program for degree holders
who want to become certified teachers
and new culinary arts, food science
and hospitality programs also fit the
Keys job market.

Rat eradicators held to highest standards


EDITOR:
Re: A letter to the editor March 5 about
the Grassy Key Gambian rats.
While the many factual inaccuracies in
the letter are very disturbing, I want to
only focus on the claimed quote Ms. Elia
Chepaitis attributed to the U.S. Department
of Agriculture employee.
Ms. Chepaitis quoted him as saying, "I
am the government, I do what I want"
when in fact the employee said, "I work
for the government, and I do what they tell
me to do." Contrary to what some people
may think of us, we are not arrogant or
rude. If any of my employees ever made


the statement Ms. Chepaitis accused my
employee of, they would be severely repri-
manded.
The Gambian rat work is carried out to
the highest standards of professionalism
and is based on a scientific foundation,
with the work described in international
scientific journals. Our agency,
USDA/Wildlife Services, has conducted a
number of successful rat eradications on
islands in the Caribbean and the Pacific.

Like it or not, fishing industry is in decline


EDITOR:
The rhetoric about a dying fishing indus-
try is not mine, but I'll say this about it:
There will almost certainly be consumer
demand for freshly caught seafood well into
the future, just as there will be demand for
Indonesian farm-raised product.
Demarid for both will very likely increase
along with the world's population. This will
result in a very predictable increase in the
pressure to catch wild fish, as well as wild
crustaceans and other shellfish, in order to
sell them to people who like to eat seafood.
This will, correspondingly but not surpris-
ingly, lead to an ever-more precise regulato-
ry response that, theoretically at least, will
ensure fisheries' sustainability.
Though the seas (also theoretically,
though many now say in fact) are in the
process of gradually expanding over an ever-
larger portion of the earth's surface, I doubt
this trend will create a significantly bigger
fishing pool from an industry standpoint.
Some people who seem to have a serious
dislike for me, or at least for how I call
things, have said they took offense to state-
ments I have indeed publicly made regarding
fishing, mainly about the future of the traps
used to capture free-range lobster and crabs
here in the Keys. I do not dislike commercial
fishing or commercial fishermen. Nor do I
resent their recreational competitors.


My father suffered a fatal heart attack on
his boat after loading up with a big catch of
fall roe mullet. Because of the time it took
to get dad to the shore for medical help, he
was left in what the physicians called a per-
manent vegetative state until we finally
pulled my mother from his body and let
them turn off the machines.
At the hospital, his fishing family, broth-
ers and sisters, sons and wife, for those last
days, cried and laughed and told each other
stories about my dad. We all agreed that he
went out the way he we would have want-
ed, with a boatload of fish in his net. He
was 51.
The plan is to reduce the number of fish-
erman. This is not my plan, nor presumably
that of fishermen destined to fall on the
reduced side of the eventual divide that is
virtually certain to come.
The type of net my father literally died
on top of is now a constitutionally prohibit-
ed harvesting device in the waters of this
state. Now that's a regulation.
I love at least one commercial fisherman,
my brother. However, I am concerned-for
his economic future given his lifelong occu-
pation. I don't believe my concerns are
unfounded.

which time City Attorney Jimmy
Morales will present them to
council for review and ranking.
Opinions at that meeting var-
ied from choosing between
Deputy City Manger C.J. Geotis
and Key Colony Beach Mayor
Clyde Burnett right then, to con-
ducting a national search using a
headhunter, which could take
months to complete.
Council said it expects to
choose a manager within two
weeks from receiving the final
resumes.
Several of the resumes indi-
cate city manager experience
across the country, while several
others have building and public
works experience. Geotis, as of
Tuesday afternoon, had not for-
mally submitted his resume.
Some familiar faces have
applied for the position, including
Michigan resident Michael
Stampfler. He has 21 years expe-
rience as city manager of Portage,
Mich., a town of 45,000 people
with a $60 million annual budget.
He is now the owner and manag-
ing partner of a consulting firm in
Michigan.
Stampfler is also an applicant
for the vacant Monroe County
administrator position and was an
alternate finalist to be
Islamorada's next village manag-
er. He is also a former finalist for
the Marathon position.
W.D. Higginbotham, of
Hollywood, has also applied.


Currently serving as a public
finance advisor in Baghdad, Iraq,
he was manager for two years in
both Melbourne Beach and
Surfside and five years in
Gainesville from 1984-89.
Higginbotham also applied for
the county administrator position.
Among other applicants:
Kenney, Aldrich, assistant
superintendent for business at
school district in Seaford, N.Y.
Rick Crews of Minneola,
Fla., who was a public works
director in Montverde for six
years.
Shari Kamali Mavon, Home-
stead's director of development
services, planning and zoning.
Vincent Mancusi, a project
manager for the Corradino Group
in Doral. He has experience as a
public works supervisor in
Hallandale Beach and as a city


manager in High Springs.
Steven Wheeler, town man-
ager in Lake Lure, N.C. He has
also been manager of Holden
Beach, N.C., and the village of
Fayette in Ohio.
Some of the candidates, though,
don't exactly tout vast managerial
experience. Among them:
Miami resident Alexander
Aguirre, whose occupation is list-
ed as men's clothing associate at
Nordstrom. His duties include
measuring suit and shirt sizes and
writing thank-you notes to cus-
tomers.
+ Miami resident Jamaal
Brown, who graduated from the
National School of Technology in
2006 with a medical assistant
diploma. His resume states he
works for a security company
providing customer service at
community guard gates.

Gas tax back before commission


Hutton hopes
public hearing
will be allowed
By ALYSON CREAN
acrean@keynoter.com

It struck out last month, but
Monroe County Attorney
Suzanne Hutton will try again
next week to get a public hearing
on the issue of whether to add 6
cents to the local gas tax.
"Maybe the commission is
opposed to it," she said, "but let
the public tell them what they
want."
In February, the County
Commission voted 4-1 against
allowing a public hearing to
explore increasing two separate
taxes that would raise the overall
cost of a gallon of gas in Monroe
by 6 cents. Sylvia Murphy was
the lone vote in favor of putting


the question before the public.
Since then, Hutton said,
Public Works Director Dent
Pierce has met with each of the
commissioners "to explain just
how bad it is.
"He talked with them individ-
ually about the dire situation,"
she told the Keynoter.
"Paving county streets will
stop," Pierce said. "More impor-
tantly, the bridges are getting
close to their final years. With flat
revenues and expenses going up,
we need to look for additional
funding."
The county maintains 380
miles of road and 28 bridges.
While the Florida Department of
Transportation does the upkeep
on U.S. 1, the county is responsi-
ble for most of the secondary
roads, Pierce said.
"I don't want to pay any more
for gas either," he said. "I'm like


anybody else; I'd rather they get
it somewhere else. But this is the
secondary road system and it
needs upkeep."
At the March 19 Marathon
meeting, which begins at 9 a.m.
at the Marathon Government


The county
maintains
380 miles of
road and
28 bridges.


Center, Hutton said she will seek
approval to advertise two. ordi-
nancqs. One would impose a 5-
cent increase to one local-option
gas tax, the other would add a
ninth cent to another local-option
gas tax.


Both taxes were established in
the 1980s. One collects 6 cents
on a gallon of gas while the other
applies primarily to diesel fuel.
But the county has the ability to
add a ninth penny to that tax and
apply the tax to all types of fuel.
In addition to the local gas
taxes, according to the Florida
Department of Revenue, for
2008, the state imposes 15.6
cents a gallon and the federal
government an additional 18.4
cents.
'People filling their tanks
Tuesday weren't thrilled at the
idea of paying more for fuel.
"I think it sucks," Key West
resident Barb Feinberg said. "The
tourists already pay enough. I
work at a gallery, and we're defi-
nitely seeing a change in what
tourists are willing to spend."
Kevin Kirby, who uses his
truck for work, lamented that it.
already costs too much to fill his
tank.

'Fifth-lane' meeting tonight


By KEVIN WADLOW
Senior Staff Writer
kwadlow@keynoter.com


Adding more pavement to
U.S. 1 through Key Largo "does
not seem conducive to our
image as a laid-back tourist
area," says the president of the
Island of Key Largo Federation
of Homeowner Associations.
Similar comments on a
planned highway project likely
will be heard at an information-
al session at 7:30 tonight at the
Key Largo library.
The homeowners association
federation, representing most of
the subdivisions and condomini-


ums on Key Largo, officially
has expressed "concern" about
the $21 million state
Department of Transportation
project.
A number of DOT officials
are expected at tonight's meet-
ing to outline the agency's rea-
sons for the project and provide
details.
The state reportedly plans to
pave several areas along sec-
tions of the northbound U.S. 1
shoulder from mile marker 90
north to provide an extra emer-
gency lane during hurricane
evacuations.


Critics call it a fifth lane
along the four-lane highway that
will do nothing to alleviate
potential traffic bottlenecks
south of Tavernier Creek and in
Florida City.
Some areas on Key Largo
itself would not be widened,
according to Tavernier resident
John Hammerstrom, who
researched the project and
issued a 2,200-word report on it.
He noted that DOT officials
have done little to publicize the
project and have listed it as
"resurfacing" in its Monroe
County work plan.
"The fifth. lane is hidden
from the public by labeling it
resurfacing," Hammerstrom
said. "How can the paving of a
previously unpaved area be
called resurfacing? One can
only resurface something that
has been surfaced."
"Almost every homeowner
I've talked to about this thinks
it's a crazy idea," said Ron
Miller, president of the home-
owners' federation.
The Key Largo Chamber of
Commerce co-sponsors to-
night's session, along with the
homeowners federation.


Neugent nominates

Popham replacement


Realtor Hale
up for a vote
next Wednesday
By ALYSON CREAN
acrean@keynoter.com

Monroe County Commissioner
George Neugent is turning to a for-
mer commercial fisherman and
boat builder to pick up where for-
mer Planning Commissioner
Sherry Popham left off in trying to
protect the working waterfront.
When the County Com-
mission convenes next week,
Neugent will nominate Marathon
resident Jeb Hale for the
Planning Commission.
"He's a fixture in the
Marathon area," Neugent said.
"He's very interested in protect-
ing the working waterfront."
Hale has spent the eight years
he's lived in Monroe County as a
Realtor, according to his resume.
Before that, Hale says he was a
commercial fisherman in the
Keys and North Carolina.

Search suspended for
ship-jumping woman

The U.S. Coast Guard on
Monday suspended its search
for a woman who jumped off the
cruise ship Costa Mediterranea
20 miles southeast of Key Largo
Sunday morning.
The Guard says Tina White,
39, of Bonita Springs was with
her boyfriend on the ship when
she reportedly became angry
and agitated and unexpectedly
jumped overboard.
More than 3,000 square miles
of ocean were searched by res-
cue crews from Coast Guard air
stations Clearwater and Miami,
and crews on the cutters
Farallon and Confidence.
"If new information comes to
light, we would consider resum-
ing our search. We are confident
that if White was in the area we
searched, we would have found
her," said Lt. Eric Pare, a com-
mand duty officer at the Coast
Guard Seventh District com-
mand center.


"I have experienced the vast
changes that have taken place in
our community for over 24
years," Hale wrote, "and I realize
that there is a delicate balance that
must be reached to preserve the
quality of life that we now enjoy.
Also realizing that we are located
in an area that has been deemed
as an Area of Critical [State]
Concern by the state of Florida,
we must work to comply with the
rules and regulations for develop-
ment and preservation alike."
Popham resigned Feb. 5, the
day after the County
Commission voted to allow sev-
eral changes to an ordinance
designed to protect access to the
working waterfront and its tradi-
tional uses.
Popham quit because she said
the changes undermine the intent
of the ordinance, which has been
sent to the state Department of
Community Affairs for review.
DCA rejected a previous
incarnation of it late last year,
calling it too vague. And earlier
this month, the South Florida
Regional Planning Council
rejected the latest version, saying
the same thing.
"Jeb is a family man with broad
range of interest that will benefit
decisions made by him on the

FKAA: Keys potable

water is no danger


Utility responds
to wire report
about compounds
By CURTIS MORGAN
cmorgan@miamiherald.com

Traces of hormones and med-
icines have shown up for years in
many municipal water systems
across the nation, but utilities
officials and state environmental
regulators say drug compounds
pose little risk to South Florida's
drinking water.
The big reason: The water
supply used in South Florida isn't
routinely recharged by treated
wastewater. For decades, the
local counties have drawn from a
relatively protected source, the
shallow underground Biscayne-
Aquifer, while piping its waste-
water into the Atlantic Ocean or
pumping it deep underground.
In many states, the same
reservoirs, lakes and rivers that
supply drinking water also
receive discharges from waste-
water treatment plants. The
result, according to an Associated
,Press report published Monday,
is that drinking water in at least
two dozen major U.S. metropoli-
tan areas contain a small residue
of pharmaceuticals, from ibupro-
fen to birth-control drugs.
The shallow, porous aquifer is
vulnerable to industrial and
chemical spills. But there are
comparably few ways from
septic tanks, mainly for phar-
maceuticals to reach the water
supply.
The Florida Keys Aqueduct
Authority says the Keys' potable
water is fine.
"The health and safety of our
customers is our primary con-
cern," Executive Director Jim
Reynolds said in a prepared
statement. "It's important to
remember that although
improvements in technology can
now detect extremely low levels
of a substance, research has not
demonstrated a human health
impact in the trace levels dis-
cussed in the recent Associated
Press story."
The FKAA says it conducts
more than 80,000 water-quality
tests every year, with technicians
sampling and analyzing the water
24 hours a day seven days a


week. The water is tested at the
underground source, the J.
Robert Dean Water Treatment
Plant in Florida City, and at hun-
dreds of points throughout the
distribution system.
"The substances detailed in
the AP report are examples of
human influence on a water sup-
ply. The FKAA's routine, exten-
sive procedures test for indica-
tors of that influence and the
results reveal no. cause for con-
cern," Reynolds said.
Florida officials are contem-
plating forcing Miami-Dade,
Broward and Palm Beach to
phase out the pumping of about
300 million gallons a day of
wastewater into the Atlantic a
practice that reduces the risk of
micro-constituents being intro-
duced into local drinking water,
but has been linked to wide-
spread reef damage.
The AP report found that
water from 24 large utilities serv-
ing 41 million people across the
country had detectable traces of
drugs, and that 34 others, includ-
ing Miami-Dade, didn't test for
them. The results came as no sur-
prise to regulators, utilities and
scientists, who have studying the
issue for decades.
In one study in 2002, the U.S.
Geological Survey sampled for
95 compounds in hot spots in 30
states, finding one or more pollu-
tants at 80 percent of the loca-
tions with detergents, steroids,
plasticizers and non-prescription
drugs the most common. Many
of the compounds have entered
the water system for decades, but
concentrations still remain so
low they can't be detected with-
out sophisticated technology -
amounting to barely measurable
fractions of a human dose.

A 36-unit affordable-housing

The Monroe County project
is slated to be built on a 2.7-acre

Some local residents are con-
cerned about traffic problems at
the intersection and a potential

The site apparently will pro-

have at least two bedrooms, and
some will have four.


Most families today have at
least two cars, Wilkinson said,
and those with driving-age chil-

County turns to eBay


Attorney wants
to sell law books
on auction site
By ALYSON CREAN
acrean@keynoter.com

Monroe County staffers are
getting creative now that the
government's money is tighter
than ever.
County Attorney Suzanne
Hutton is turning to eBay for
bucks, proposing her office sell
an unused set of law books via
the online auction site.
The staff of county attorneys


moved to New Town Key West
offices in October after their
-Old Town offices literally
began falling down around
their ears. The new digs are a
little tight, Hutton said.
"We downsized consider-
ably for our new offices,'" she
said, "and there's not enough
room for our books. These are
sitting around unused, so we
might as well dispose of them."
The County Commission
meets at 9 a.m. March 19 at the

and Hutton said she's ask
approval to post the books for

sale on eBay.
The reference books are
called the American Law
Reports. The County Attorney's
Office, however, uses West
Law for its reference, Hutton
said.
A search of the popular eBay
shows a similar set of books
listed for $1,500, Hutton said in
a memo to the commission.
Tuesday, eBay had a number
of individual law volumes list-
ed, ranging in price from $5 to
$22. A complete set, offered by
a seller calling itself the
Hoboken Attic, is listed for
$800.
"If we can get anything,"
Hutton said, "it's better than
throwing them away."
The county doesn't have its
own account on eBay, so
Hutton said she'll likely use her
personal account, then roll the
proceeds over to the county
after fees for the sale are
deducted.
Hutton notes that state law
allows for the disposal of items
with less than $5,000 value by
the "most efficient and cost-
effective means." In this case,
she says, that would be eBay.

Fish life on the Spiegel Grove
shipwreck off Key Largo closely
tracks what biologists would
expect to find on a natural reef at
the same depth, says the Reef
Environmental Education
Foundation.
A five-year monitoring pro-
gram at the wreck, a retired 510-
. foot U.S. Navy transport ship
scuttled as an artificial reef,
logged sightings of 191 fish
species, REEF Executive
Director Leda Cunningham said.
"It generally compares to the
fish population of a deepwater
reef," Cunningham said. "There
were no surprises."
The Spiegel Grove was scut-
tled in May 2002, going down
hours earlier than previous
planned, and unintentionally
rolled upside down. It didn't open
to divers until that June, when a
salvage company righted it.
The popular dive site provides
home to fish large and small,
including protected species of
Nassau grouper and jewfish.
"Species rarely found else-
where in the Keys, such as black-


cap basslet and blackfin snap-
per," also were spotted during
survey dives, notes a REEF
report.
As part of the agreement that
allowed the sinking of the ship,
organizers arranged to have fish
life monitored over five years for
an accurate census of fish life on
the wreck.
A team of six advanced fish-
identification specialists made 11
visits to the Spiegel Grove to
compile the report.
"These findings are consistent
with the management expecta-
tions for the project and have
helped us evaluate and improve a
similar monitoring program for
the Vandenberg project," Florida
Keys National Marine Sanctuary
Superintendent Dave Score said
in a statement issued by REEF.
A similar monitoring effort
will be mounted after the sinking
of the Hoyt S. Vandenberg, a
522-foot retired military ship.
The Vandenberg, an Air Force
vessel used to track satellites,
tentatively is scheduled to be
scuttled about six miles off Key
West on May 15.

Gator Air starts Keys service smoothly


President says
interest seems
to be strong
By RYAN McCARTHY
rmccarthy@keynoter.com

Gator Air flights connecting
Marathon and Key West with
Fort Lauderdale have been run-
ning smoothly in the carrier's
first week of Keys service,
President Dave Brown said.
Flights to Florida Keys
Marathon Airport and Key West
International Airport began
Friday and Brown said calls
have been pouring in ever since.
He said a summer schedule will
be finalized based upon interest
in the-service.
"We've had people on almost
every flight. I talk to everyone
as much as I can and .1 haven't
had any negativity," Brown


said. "They are all pleased that
there is service in Marathon."
Airport officials negotiated
with several carriers in the
months following Delta's
September 2007 suspension of
Freedom Airlines flights to
Atlanta. Delta lasted just six
months in Marathon and cited
the runway being too short to
accommodate its planes.
Gator Air flies nine-passen-
ger Piper Cherokee Chieftan
planes, with carpeted walls and
leather seats Brown called
"semi-executive" in style.
The airline offers two round-
trip flights from Fort
Lauderdale to both Marathon
and Key West.

Pressure mounts on housing


McPherson still
pushes new tax
for tourists
By KYLE TEAL
kteal @keynoter.com

A framed photograph of newly
hired Key West lobbyist Ed
Scales is hanging in the City Hall
men's room.
Depending on how successful
the Gray/Robinson attorney lobbies
for affordable housing funds this
state legislative session, the, photo
could make its way up the office
totem poll, and possibly hang
behind a top city official's desk.
"I can't think of a worse loca-
tion for it now," said Scales, who
was told his picture could be pro-
moted to the outside of City
Attorney Shawn Smith's office
door if state lawmakers are kind
to Key West.
But city officials note that
totem poll is a rough climb.
Gov. Charlie Crist's recom-
mended 2008-09 budget includes
a $72.6 million cut in funding for
affordable housing programs
across the state. Even with those
cuts, some officials say Crist isn't
slashing enough.


Key West Mayor Morgan
McPherson is spearheading a
number of workforce housing ini-
tiatives some well received,
but some have already met with
objections.
For the second time since April,
McPherson proposes to collect an
additional penny per dollar on Key
West tourists' hotel bills to help
fund affordable housing.
More specifically, he wants to
"expand what the actual tax is
used for," McPherson said.
Keys hotel guests are charged
3 percent in taxes for tourism-
related advertising and 1 percent
for impact fees. Half of the penny
impact fee goes to the Monroe
County Land Authority, which
tackles affordable housing pro-
grams. The other half-cent goes
into the city and county's general
fund budget.
The collection of an impact tax
on hotel guests was made possible
because the Keys are designated
an Area of Critical State Concern,
which includes special attention
to address affordable housing.
McPherson's plan would add a
penny to the bed tax. The option,
to collect on the fifth penny is
available, officials say. Under


state statute, however, that extra
penny can only go to promoting
the Keys, not housing.
Scales and Gray/Robinson
Attorneys at Law will lobby to
change that for a 10-year period,
according to drafted legislation.
"We are currently in the
.process of trying to get Senate and
House sponsors for the measure,"
Scales said.
If that hurdle is cleared, the
Monroe County Commission
would still need to pass the meas-
ure with a super-majority vote,
requiring a yes from four of the
five commissioners.
Jodi Weinhofer, president of the
Lodging Association of the Florida
Keys and Key West, says the move
would "kill the Keys' golden
goose." The Key West Innkeepers
Association is also opposed.
"Our industry is more in favor
of affordable housing than any-
one," she said. "But every penny
of bed tax we add means less
tourists."
Officials remain pessimistic
about what will come from.
Tallahassee.
"I think my picture may end up
hanging inside of the bathroom
stall rather than outside by the
end of the legislative session,"
Scales said.

Little recourse when power goes out


Federal rules
aim for secrecy
due to security
By DAVID GOODHUE
dgoodhue@keysreporter.com

Recently adopted federal
rules could make filing damage
lawsuits against electric utili-
ties for incidents during black-


outs more difficult.
If a driver has a car accident
because traffic lights are out
during a blackout like the
recent nearly statewide outage
- for example, suing for dam-
ages from the utility that start-
ed the outage just got tougher.
The rules were finalized by
the Federal Energy Regulatory
Commission in 2007 to create

consequences for utilities in
cases where their practices or
oversight were found by
authorities to have exacerbated
power outages.
But until authorities decide
to impose penalties, investiga-
tors' findings will be secret
because of infrastructure secu-
rity concerns.
"Keeping these investiga-
tions nonpublic would make it
less likely that information
relating to a system vulnerabil-
ity would fall into the wrong
hands," said Joel Eisen, a pro-
fessor of energy law at the
University of Richmond
School of Law.
Public utility laws and legal
rules about damages have
made recovering damages from
utilities difficult even before
the new standards took effect,
according to Richard Pierce, a
professor with Georgetown
University School of Law.
But the 2007 provision also
makes it harder for attorneys to
sue utilities for damages or
injuries that happen to their
clients during a blackout, even
if the blackout was the utility's
fault.


Federal and state energy
regulators will investigate
whether Florida Power & Light
violated the mandatory and
enforceable FERC rules when
a massive Feb. 26 power out-
age was triggered by a fire at a
Miami-Dade County substa-
tion. More than 2 million peo-
ple throughout the state went
without power for about two
hours.
But even if violations are
found, it's not likely attorneys
looking to sue FPL could build
their cases based on FERC
investigators' findings if the
progress of the investigation is
kept out of the sunshine.
"This might have an adverse
impact on any subsequent tort
lawsuit ... in that it would be
difficult for a plaintiff's lawyer
to discover the precise basis
upon which FPL was found to
have violated the reliability
standards," Eisen said.
Representatives from FPL
did not return phone calls for
this story.
FERC, FPL, the North
American Energy Reliability
Corp. and the Florida
Reliability Coordination


Council are looking into why
the fire triggered the Turkey
Point nuclear plant to- shut
down, causing cascading out-
ages throughout the state.
"We're trying to figure out
why a single failure caused a
blackout for 2 1/2 million cus-
tomers. That's substantial,"
said Joe McClelland, FERC's
director of electric reliability.
If FPL is found to be in vio-
lation, the company could be
fined up to $1 million per day,
per violation found, FERC
spokeswoman Mary O'Driscoll
said.
The fine "is for every day
that the entity was in violation
of the standard with or without
a blackout," O'Driscoll wrote
in an e-mail to The Reporter.
"The key is that a blackout
does not have to occur for a
standard to be violated. In fact,
the whole idea of standards is
to prevent blackouts by follow-
ing them."
These standards were craft-
ed as a result of the August
2003 massive blackout that
affected much of the northeast-
ern United States.

Cops make surprise

find following call


Restrained tnan
is found in
bare essentials
This is one way you don't
want anyone to find you: In an
abandoned building bound with
pantyhose and gagged, wearing
women's intimate clothing and
with a foam ball in your mouth.
But that happened Saturday at
1 a.m. in Key West when police
responded to a call of a "suspi-
cious incident" at an abandoned
Staples Avenue house from a
nearby resident.
A report says that upon
arrival., police found the 32-year-
old man tied to a chair. They
untied the panty hose around his
head that was being used to keep
the foam ball firmly in his mouth,
and his hands and legs were unre-
strained by rescue personnel.
Once the man, who a report
says was "falsely imprisoned,"


was able to talk, he said he was-
n't hurt.
Police say he told them he met
a man in his mid-40s earlier in
the evening outside the Bull and
Whistle bar on Duval Street who
asked him if he wanted to "fool
around." He consented, accord-
ing to a police report.
The pair went to the aban-
doned building and "engaged in
sexual acts on. top of a blanket."
But the suspect started telling the
victim to do things he didn't
want, police reported. The victim
didn't provide police details.
The man who did the tying up,
reportedly against the victim's
will, left. Police found the bound
man half an hour later.
They indicate they found a sex
toy, a Kleenex with lipstick,
stockings, a bra, two tennis balls,
black shoes, Duracell batteries
and a black flashlight at the
scene.

rowed a co-worker's bicycle

while claiming he had a gun.
A teller handed over a stack of
money, which Carlisle reportedly
grabbed and later placed in a

According to police spokes-
woman Christie Phillips, Carlisle
ran out with "thousands of dol-

back to the construction site with
a bag they thought was his lunch.
Police gathered witness
reports and surveillance camera
shots, later identifying Carlisle.
They discovered he didn't have
a gun.

Beware tax scammers


Always remember,
you're liable
for your return

About to get ready to have
someone prepare your tax return
for 2007? Don't fall victim to a
scam.
The Internal Revenue
Service suggests you
remember three important
guidelines:
You are responsi-
ble and liable for the
content of your tax
return. .-.
*Anyone who
promises you a
bigger refund -N--
without knowing
your tax situation
could be mis-
leading you.
+ Never sign .
a tax return with-
out looking it. over
to make sure it is
accurate.
Beware of these
common schemes:


Return preparer fraud
Dishonest preparers can
cause many headaches for ta\-
payers who fall victim to their
ploys. Such preparers derive
financial gain by skimming a por-
tion of their clients' refunds and
charging inflated fees for return
preparation services.


Choose carefully when hiring
a tax preparer. As the saying goes,
if it sounds too good to be true, it
probably is.
*+ Identity theft.
It pays to be choosy when it
comes to disclosing personal

informa-
tion; identity thieves have used
stolen personal data to access
financial accounts, run up
charges on credit cards and apply


for new loans.
The IRS is aware of several
identity theft scams involving
taxes or scammers posing as the
IRS itself. Be aware that identity
thieves are already pushing
scams involving the federal eco-
nomic stimulus payments thar
will be mailed to every resident in
the country in May. At least one
telephone scam. is making the
rounds using the proposed
rebates as bait.
Frivolous arguments.
Promoters have been known
to make outlandish claims
that the 16th
Amendment to the
Constitution con-
cerning congres-
sional power to
,,_ establish and col-
S lect income taxes
was never ratified;
/ that wages are not

return and paying taxes
are merely voluntary;
and that being required to
file Form 1040 violates the
,. Fifth Amendment right
against self-incrimination or
the Fourth Amendment right to
priac
Such arguments are false and
ha'e been thrown out of court.
Taxpayers have the right to con-
test their tax liabilities in court,
but no one has the right to dis-
obey the law.


Want payment? File a return


Stimulus check
isn't processed
without '07 return

People who-don't usually file
an income tax return must do so
this year to receive their 2008
"economic stimulus" payment
being sent out in May by the fed-
eral government.
To receive a payment, tax-
payers must have a valid Social
Security number, $3,000 of
income and file a 2007 federal
tax return. The IRS will take
care of the rest.
Eligible people will receive
up to $600 ($1,200 for married
couples), and parents 'will
receive an additional $300 for


each eligible child younger than
17. .
Millions of retirees, disabled
veterans and low-wage workers
who usually are exempt from fil-
ing a tax return must do so this
year to receive a stimulus pay-
ment.
.The IRS and several of its
partners in the Free File
Alliance, comprising companies
working with the IRS to provide
free electronic filing, can now
accept returns submitted by peo-
ple who have no legal require-
ment to file other than to receive
their payments.
Individuals and families must
have at least $3,000 of income
from any combination of earned


income, Social Security retire-
ment or disability benefits, cer-
tain railroad retirement benefits,
or disability compensation, dis-
ability pension, or survivor ben-
efits paid by Veterans Affairs.
The minimum economic stimu-
lus payrfient is $300 for individ-
uals and $600 for married cou-
ples.
Taxpayers who normally file
a tax return and want to use Free
File, should simply go to the
main Free File page and click
"Start Now" to see a list of the
19 companies offering free
preparation and electronic filing
to the IRS. Free File is available
to 97 million taxpayers who earn
$54,000 or less. There is no
charge for using IRS Free File.

Get to know


your preparer


Here are some
hints to know
to raise flags
Tax-return preparer fraud gen-
erally involves the preparation
and filing of false income tax
returns by preparers who claim
inflated personal or business
expenses, false deductions, unal-
lowable credits or excessive
exemptions on returns prepared
for their clients.
This includes inflated requests
for the special one-time refund of
the long-distance telephone tax.
Preparers may also manipulate
income figures to obtain tax cred-
its, such as the earned income tax
credit, fraudulently.
Helpful hints when choosing a
return preparer:
Be careful with preparers
who claim they can obtain larger
refunds than other preparers.
Avoid preparers who base
their fee on a percentage of the
amount of the refund.
Stay away from preparers
who claim that many, if not most,
phone customers can get hundreds
of dollars or more back under the
telephone tax refund program.
Use a reputable tax profes-
sional who signs your tax return
and provides you with a copy for
your records.
Consider whether the indi-
vidual or firm will be around to
answer questions about the
preparation of your tax return
months, or even years, after the
return has been filed.
Review your return before
you sign it and ask questions on
entries you don't understand.
No matter who prepares
your tax return, you (the taxpay-
er) are ultimately responsible for
all of the information on your tax
return. Therefore, never sign a
blank tax form.
Find out the person's cre-
dentials. Only attorneys, CPAs
and enrolled agents can represent
taxpayers before the IRS in all
matters including audits, collec-
tion and appeals. Other return
preparers may only represent tax-
payers for audits of returns they
actually prepared.
Find out if the preparer is
affiliated with a professional
organization that provides its


members with continuing educa-
tion and resources and holds
them to a code of ethics.
Reputable preparers will ask
to see your receipts and ask you
multiple questions to determine
your qualifications for expenses,
deductions and other items. By
doing so, they are trying to help
you avoid penalties, interest or
additional taxes that could result
from an IRS examination.

DO YOU KNOW THAT
TYPING AN E-MAIL IN ALL
CAPITAL LETTERS IS CON-
SIDERED RUDE?
It comes across as shouting,
or what's referred to as flame -
a heated message, typed and
sent in a moment of passion.
Instead of hitting send, take a
deep breath and give it liome
time. Read the e-mail later after
you've cooled off, and make
some revisions to cut out hostil-
ity.
That's one of many tips to
consider when adhering to e-
mail and Internet etiquette, or
Netiquette. In a world where e-
mail is perhaps the primary
means of on-the-job communi-
cation, there's no reason why
one should practice good man-
ners on the phone and them
while writing a message that
could be saved or circulated to
numerous readers.
"The nice -thing about e-mail
is it allows me to have a conver-
sation let somebody know.
something without being
interrupted," said Robert Ward,
senior administrator for net-
working for Monroe County
government. "And there is a
paper trail."
Ward, a Plantation Key resi-
dent, says he gets about 30 e-
mails a day, a small amount
compared to the hundreds that
can flood some Microsoft
Outlook boxes.
If you work for the govern-
ment, county and city employ-
ees must remember one thing
- every e-mail sent out or
received is public .record.
"Make sure you'd be com-
fortable with it being printed in
a newspaper," Ward said. "I
wouldn't write anything in an e-
mail that I wouldn't mind see-
ing on the Internet or that would
make me uncomfortable if my
mother read it."
Ward said workers in the pri-
vate sector should tread lightly,
as well. A paper trail is easily
accessible.
Key West City Attorney
Shawn Smith said he receives
hundreds of e-mails throughout
the week, most of them from

locals.
"It's a great reference to get
your opinion out there," Smith
said.
Key West city spokeswoman
Christie Phillips is also inundat-
ed with messages every day,
and says the most headache-
inducing blunder is hitting the
"reply to all" option and send-
ing a message "that has nothing
to do with you."
She said she's also received
some curtly phrased emails
from reporters demanding
information "ASAP."
Tips courtesy of www
.emailreplies.com:
+ When forwarding an e-
mail, it's unethical to change
any wording in the existing
email.
Don't mail out chain let-
ters.
+ Make e-mails personal,
unless it's a mass e-mail. If a
message was personally mailed
to you, ask permission from the
sender before you forward it to
anyone else.
+ Emoticons such as smiley
faces :) can be used "spar-
ingly," according to Netiquette
guidelines. But smiley faces
can't be used to offset insulting
comments.
+ Get to the point. Don't put
off your e-mail recipients with

either, as their opponents' poor
pitching and sloppy fielding led
to easy Dolphin runs.
"Surprisingly enough, we did-

bases and passed balls," coach
Andrea Murphy said.
Freshman Alli Heller pitched a
complete game shutout Friday,

Sophomore Shelby Kuck led
the Dolphins offensively, going
3-for-4 at the plate with one RBI.

locating her pitches in the first
inning, leading to several

Baseball Conchs

rebound big time


Team takes 2
from Broward,
evens record
By DICK WAGNER
Keynoter Contributor


On Saturday afternoon at
wind-swept Rex Weech Field,
the Key West High School
baseball team learned it doesn't
need to hit to score.
In the first inning against
North Broward Prep, the
Conchs scored three runs with-
out putting a ball in play the
first six batters walked and the


seventh was hit by a pitch.
"You have to take advantage
of mistakes by the other team,"
said coach Miguel Menendez,
whose team went on to a 10-2
victory to complete a two-game
weekend sweep.
"We did that all weekend,
whether it be walks or errors,"
Menendez said. "By grabbing
the lead early, we were also
able to become aggressive on
the bases. We stole a lot of
bases."
The Conchs, who entered the
See KEY WEST / 23


passed balls. Marathon mixed in
a few hits en route to building an
8-0 lead after just one inning.
Murphy said unlike recent
matchups with the Victors and
Warriors, the Dolphins stayed
sharp despite the score.
Senior right fielder Yari Alpizar
preserved Heller's shutout by
backing up an overthrown ball and
throwing a runner out at home.
"We played these teams and
beat them and had some mental
lapses, but she was right where
she should be and made the play,"
Murphy said.
Saturday was more of the
same, as the Dolphins built an 11-
0 lead by the end of two innings.
Junior Megan Gardner pitched
a complete game for the
Dolphins, striking out eight bat-
ters over five innings.
Kuck had another strong day
at the plate, going 2-for-2, while
Alpizar was 1-for-3 with a double
and two RBI. Morgan
Longstreth, Jeanette Betancourt,
Celena Mora and Kelley Struyf
all added RBIs of their own.
"It'd be nice to face a more
competitive team going into the
harder part of our schedule. Its
hard to stay focused," she said.
A game against Palmer Trinity
School scheduled for Tuesday
was cancelled. The Dolphins next
play at Coral Shores High School
at 5 p.m. Tuesday. A game sched-
uled against Key West today has
been cancelled.

Canes, Conchs split in tennis


Second Rhyne
-gets a scare,
but knee's OK
By DICK WAGNER
Keynoter Contributor

The match began badly for
freshman Casey Rhyne, who,
now that her sister has a knee
injury that will require surgery,
is playing No. 1 singles for
Coral Shores High School's
girls tennis team.
Going for a shot by Key
West's Gabby Scammacca in
the first game Friday afternoon,
Rhyne fell. She got up and fin-
ished the game, but after the
changeover, reappeared with a
wrap on her own right knee.
Scammacca won a tight sec-
ond game to go ahead, 2-0, but
then Rhyne faltered in the third
game. "Awww," she cried out
after a mis-hii.
"You all right? Want me to
get you some Advil?" asked her
doubles partner Tianna Morton,
who watched through the fence


that abuts the first court at Key
West High.
Rhyne declined, then dou-
ble-faulted to give Scammacca
the game and a 3-0 lead. During
the changeover, Rhyne drank
Gatorade and Scammacca
swigged water.
When the match resumed,
Scammacca hit hard forehand
and backhand winners and let
her slender opponent make the
mistakes. The Key West player
eventually won, 8-0, outpoint-
ing Rhyne,'32-13.
After shaking hands, they
left the court, Scammacca to
shouts of "Great game, Gabby."
Surprised to learn she had
made only seven errors,
Scammacca smiled and said,
"I'm not used to persons mak-
ing mistakes before I do."
In the shade, Rhyne sat on a
cooler as coach Blake Fry
inspected her knee, which had
an ice bag on it.
"She hits really good,"
Rhyne said of Scammacca.
"Every time I'd go for the ball,

ing streak, defeated North
Broward, 10-4, on Friday night,
taking advantage of six.errors.
Key West, now 6-6, has
scored 37 runs in its past four
games.
"We regained some confi-
dence and I think we learned a
lot about ourselves," Menendez
said.
Shortstop Raiko Alfonso and
designated hitter Kyle Lepine
had big weekends. Alfonso had
three hits and four RBI Friday
night and knocked in another
run on Saturday. Lepine had an
RBI triple Friday and drove in
three runs Saturday with a dou-
ble and triple. He increases his
season RBI total to 18.
Left-handers Nolan Thomas
and Drew Rivera pitched well.
Thomas struck out nine Friday
night and Rivera struck out
eight Saturday, giving up five
hits in six innings.
The Conchs will play host to
a strong Russell, County, Ala.,
team at 11 Saturday morning


and at 8 Saturday night. "After
[those games], we will know for
sure how much confidence
these guys have," Menendez
said.

Lady Conchs go 1-3
Playing against strong com-
petition, the Key West softball
team lost three of four games at
the Strike Zone Speedball
Tournament in Pembroke Pines.
The Conchs lost Friday to
Cypress Bay, 8-2, and to
defending state 6A champion
Everglades, 6-3. Saturday, they
defeated Hollywood Christian,
4-2, and lost, 10-0, to
Archbishop McCarthy.
Second baseman Jianna
Hernandez had six hits over the
weekend, including two dou-
bles and a triple. First baseman
Lauren Wells had four hits and
center fielder Kristen Babich
and pitcher Lindsay Yochum
each had three.
Yochum worked al four
games on the mound, throwing
367 pitches.
The Conchs (4-4) will play
at Marathon at 4 p.m. today.


my knee would lock up."
But not like her sister's had.
Allison Rhyne, a junior, tore her
anterior cruciate ligament the
week before at Marathon. She
also tore it last year.
"I really look up to her,"
Casey Rhyne said. "When she
was playing No. 1 and I was
No. 2, it was neat to look at the
next court and see how she was
doing. Now..."
Her voice trailed off. She
looked at her fingernails paint-
ed Coral Shores green. And
then she looked down at her
knee.
Despite Rhyne's loss, the
Hurricane girls defeated the
Conchs, 4-3. Simona Lichvar
defeated Sarah Fitzsimmons, 8-
4; Annie Leopold topped Rae
Lark, 8-6, and Micheala Walters
beat Rachel Walker, 8-2.
The match was decided
when Leopold and Walters
defeated Lark and Walker in
No. 2 doubles, 8-5.
The Key West boys won, 7-
0, with Nick Lark defeating
Zack Stroup, 8-3, in No. 1 sin-
gles.

"Gaby wasn't playing her

took advantage of that. She's a
good player and Gaby knew she
had to play her best" to win, Key
West coach Paul Findlay said.
"She was nervous going into

Izaguirres help spark offense


ISLAND CHRISTIAN / From 22

Jordan Izaguirre who all fol-
lowed with RBI singles to score
three runs for the win.
"Things did get a little scary
there in the seventh," Hammon
said.
In the bottom of the seventh,
Phillip Izaguirre picked up the
pitching win by closing out the
Florida Bible lineup.
Last year's leading pitcher,
Aaron Izaguirre, has been trou-
bled by shoulder trouble this
spring. He got the start Friday to
see how much progress he has
made.
It did not go as well as hoped,


with Florida Bible rapping out
three singles and a double to
jump out to a 5-0 in the bottom
of the first inning.
Island Christian scratched out
a run in the second, then sent
Phillip Izaguirre to the mound.
He struck out the side, and
would close with 11 strikeouts in
six innings. Phillip allowed only
one hit and two walks.
The Eagles got back in the
game in the third inning, a two-
run double by Tim Globus
sparking a three-run rally.
Andy Hertel had and RBI sin-
gle and Phillip Izaguirre also
singled. Nathan Overfield came
around to score after reaching on
a dropped third strike.


Each of the four Izaguirres
had two of the team's 12 hits as
Island Christian improved to 4-2
headed into a Tuesday game
against Princeton Christian
(results not available at press
time).
Earlier in the week, ICS was
blanked in a 13-0 loss to power-
house Brito and a 12-0 loss to
Champagnat.
"The bottom line is that we
didn't have the confidence we
have against other teams,"
Hammon said. "The kids were
nervous and played like it."
Island Christian gets another
shot at Brito in a 7 p.m. Friday
game at Homestead's Campbell

Key West High School's
Krizzie Menez, Phillip Young

Miami.
Menez, a junior soccer player
running track for the first time,
won the 100-meter dash in 13.23

Jasmine Jones.
Young, a sophomore, won the
triple jump with an effort of 44-
1.5 and was fourth in the 110

Briones, Shea Reger and Andres
Garcia that won that race in
3:31.64, two seconds better than
the Monsignor Pace team.
The Conch boys, with 62
points, finished fourth in the
meet, behind Belen Jesuit (187),


Pace (87) and Ransom
Everglades (74). The girls team
was sixth with 46.5 points, well

which had 125.
"All in all, we had a pretty
good day," coach David Perkins

Lady


Canes


perfect

By KEVIN WADLOW
Senior Staff Writer
kwadlow@keynoter.com

Coral Shores' Lady
Hurricanes kept their lacrosse
district record perfect with last
week's 10-6 win over Killian.
That sets the stage for a
Saturday showdown at Palmer
Trinity, girls coach Mark Hall
said.
"Palmer is the one team in
our district that has a chance of
catching us" for the regular-
season title and the top seed in
April's district tournament,
Hall said. "This is a huge game,
one we really need to win."
The Lady Canes (4-0 in dis-
trict; 4-4 overall) fell in a
Saturday match to Cypress Bay,
10-7. Highlights from that
game were not available at
press time.
In the March 5 win over
Killian, the Canes got three
goals from Rachel Catanio, giv-
ing her a team-high 22 for the
year.
Brittany Wood scored twice
(14 for the season) and made an
assist, tying her with Catanio
for the team assist lead with
four each.
Lexi Glista and Vallarie
Ostenson each scored twice.
Kelsey Garcia, a defender, also
scored a goal.
Goalkeeper Dannon Magrane
made five saves with strong
defensive support from Anna
Noe, Alison Raines and
Garcia.
Tuesday's scheduled lacrosse
games for the Coral Shores
boys and girls teams were can-
celled because of state academ-
ic testing.
The Hurricane boys take the
home field in Tavernier for a 6
p.m. Thursday against Ransom
Everglades. A JV game will fol-
low.
Coral Shores' boys also play
at Palmer on Saturday.
A middle-school game
between the Key Largo
Tornados and the Plantation
Key Panthers begins at 4:30
p.m. Thursday at the Coral
Shores field.


Familiar song for


Dolphin baseball


By RYAN McCARTHY
rmccarthy@keynoter.com


The Marathon High School
baseball team's frustrating sea-
son continued with losses Friday
to Miami Christian School, 5-3,
and Palmer Trinity School
Monday, 12-2.
The two defeats kept the
Dolphins winless at 0-9, with
seven games remaining in their
regular season.
"You just have to keep play-
ing hard, but it's getting frustrat-
ing and taking its toll on me and
the team. We looked good in one
game and [have] games where
we've been inconsistent," coach
LIuis Leal said.
Leal said the Dolphins strug-
gle with allowing their oppo-
nents big innings, which hap-
pened against both Miami
Christian and Palmer Trinity.
On Friday against the Victors,
the Dolphins found themselves
behind 3-0 after just one inning.
Starter Toby Eigner gave up
back-to-back singles to lead off
the game and walked a batter to

load the bases. A single and a
double scored three runs before
the inning ended.
Marathon would answer right
back, though, tying the game at
3-3 in the bottom of the first.
Jake Sjursen and Nick
Bertiaux singled and J.P.
McCabe reached base on an
error that scored Sjursen and sen-
ior .George Hoffman singled
home Bertiaux and McCabe to
tie the game.
Eigner settled down the
remainder of the game, facing on
average four batters per inning
after the first. He pitched seven
innings, allowed five runs on six
hits and struck out four while
walking one.
But the Dolphins struck out
11 times and were unable to get
going offensively.
The Victors would tack one
run on in the third and fifth
innings to earn the 5-3 victory.
Saturday, Hoffman started for
the Dolphins and had another
shaky outing. He started by retir-

in the first inning, but allowed
five runs in the second.
An error and two hit batsmen
loaded the bases with one out
and Hoffman walked home a
run. An RBI double by the nine-
hole hitter made it 3-0 and the
Falcons scored twice more to


take a 5-0 lead after two innings.
Marathon scored twice in the
fourth inning when senior catch-
er Chris Garrett singled home
Sean 0' Connor and J.P.

runs in the fourth put the game
out of reach.

Offshore
March is starting off like
a lion for sure.
On one of the two nice
weather days this past week,
Capt. Ron Allen on the Fish
Tales ventured offshore in
quest of mahi mahi. There is
no other way to tell it the
quest was an effort in futility.
Some captains v ill begin to
look for dolphin fish any day
the wind is onshore and
moderate, but expect the
consistent dolphin activity to
begin sometime in late April.

Reef,
CapR. Rob Corradi on the
beautifully restored Southern
Comfort charter out of
Whale Harbor Marina had a
great day on the yellow% tail
snapper. Unfortunately, the
trip was cut a little short due
to mal de mer. For those of
you who do not speak
French, the Funk and
Wagnall's Standard Desk
Dictionary one-word defini-
tion is simply "seasickness."

Gulf, bay
One report tells of a slow
start. but great Spanish
mackerel action after the first
hour of nothing but snapper
and remoras. The mackerel
averaged 4 to 5 pounds and
were biting until well after
the chum was gone in the
rolling sea.
Not much word on the
tripletail and cobia action is-
slow, also. Some anglers
assume the body of fish is
just a little farther into the
deeper Gulf than they are
used to fishing. In any event,
the tarpon are showing up in
good numbers along the
Cape Sable beaches and
along the Everglades
National Park boundary
a.k.a., the Yacht Channdl..

Flats, backcountry
Sea trout is getting real
good around Flamingo and
the banks out to the west.
Sometimes the fish are on
the small side, and some-
times well over the legal
length of 15 inches.

Cast a line for charity


League money
goes to packages
for the troops

With only one public bowling
alley and few dartboards to be
found across the Keys, what else
is there for guys and gals to
do to feel part of a team and blow
off some steam?
You could join a softball
league, although drinking beer
and swinging wooden bats
around doesn't sound like a good
combination. Well here's an idea;
If you enjoy slinging a fishing
rod, a bar atmosphere, the cama-
raderie of good friends, kicking
rear ends of not-so-good friends
and using the excuse to the wife
that you are doing it all for chari-
ty, try the Casting for our Troops
League, which just wrapped up
its inaugural season Sparky's
Landing on Key Colony Beach.
The roots of this dart-style
casting league go back four years
to the Weekly Fisherman publica-
tion. A traveling Friday-night
casting contest for money
brought a cult following to each
event. The idea was to accrue the
most points aiming at three rings
floating in the water.
The largest and closest ring to
you was worth.five points. The
second smallest was worth 10
and the farthest and smallest of
the three was worth 20. After
three casts for each contestant,
the top scorers would then cast
for money.
To say there was a cult follow-
ing is an understatement. For
example, the Richard Black fam-
ily of Tavernier set up its own


Tournmet rings in
c their back
yard for
.practicing.
T he y
Turned it
c into a
S t lucrative
f business
each Friday
afternoon
as they
cl earned
Darr ylI
Cal Sutphin Wheatley,
owner of
the Weekly Fisherman, out of
hundreds of dollars each contest.
After a couple of years, the
contest migrated to a semi-per-
manent home at Porky's Bayside
in Marathon. A transformation
from casting contest to casting
league occurred as captains and
avid anglers made makeshift
teams to compete against each
other, a la dart or bowling
leagues. After a successful year
and some inconsistency with who
would take charge, the casting
league faltered around 2006.
Flash forward to 2007. With
the help of a few people inspired
by the nonprofit group Forgotten
Soldiers Outreach, the casting
league rose from the ashes at
Porky's (Forgotten Soldiers
Outreach is a non-political 501(c)
tax-exempt corporation regis-
tered with the state that sends
monthly care packages to our
U.S. servicemen and women sta-
tioned overseas. Its members are
committed to do this as long as
the troops are deployed to assure
they are not forgotten).
A very strong start to the first
half of the season led to an even


stronger showing as the league
moved across town to Sparky's
Landing on Key Colony.
A lot of the same teams
reformed to not only help
Forgotten Soldiers, but relive that
sense of competition among
them. In a town where it is diffi-
cult at times to get charter cap-
tains to agree or even meet with
each other, the casting league has
more than 15 Middle Keys cap-
tains involved. ,
With the added enticement of
weekly prizes compliments of
Mike Zelner of Z's Jigs, the
league is cemented with staying
power and just finished its year
contributing $2,300 to Forgotten
Soldiers. The draw of this highly
addictive competition has
reached all the way to Key West
as Capt. Kyle Metzger makes the
drive weekly to compete and
compete he does as he has the
dubious nickname of the Coast
Guard Bulls-Eye King.
Lynelle Chauncey Zelner of
Boynton Beach, executive direc-
tor of Forgotten Soldiers and a
former Islamorada resident,
reminds everyone what their
main goal of the casting league.
"Being an election year, we
really must keep the focus on our
troops, as too many people get
caught up with the political
hoopla and do forget about our
U.S. servicemen and women put-
ting their lives on the line for all
of us. Isn't that the reason we can
all enjoy fishing?"

season of the casting league or to

Soldiers Outreach call (305) 378-

Black wins


another tourney


In the 14th annual Backbone
Lures Fish 'til You Lose It
Backcountry Fishing Tournament
March 1 in Islamorada, anglers
rose to the challenge of fishing a
one-jig tournament.
Eighteen-year-old college stu-
dent Richard Black, at home in
Islamorada on spring vacation,
was named the unguided grand
champion with 11 snook and four
redfish. Black is a tournament
veteran who won the junior divi-
sion four years ago.
Black and Mike Myatt of
Hallandale Beach, who was
named guided angler grand
champion, both used the quarter-
ounce white-and-chartreuse
Backbone jig.
Myatt fished with Capt. Larry
Sydnor of Islamorada. As well as
his individual victory, Myatt
paired with Sydnor to earn the
team grand champion award.
Myatt released 19 snook and one
redfish while Sydnor released six
snook.
Myatt and Sydnor said they
fished the waters halfway between
Flamingo and Everglades City.
The one-fly grand champion
was Robert Collins of Naples


with two redfish, one snook and
one shark.
The junior grand champion
was Parker Smith of Miami, who
caught two redfish, one snook
and 10 other fish that met tourna-
ment requirements for length and
species.
The ladies grand champion
was Brook Denkert, who fished
with her father Capt. Dave
Denkert, both of Islamorada. She
released two redfish, three snook
and 10 "fun fish."
The tournament's fishing
guide grand champion was Capt.
Honson Lau of Miami, who
released nine redfish and nine
snook.
The tournament hosted 51
anglers fishing from 26 boats.
Anglers each selected one lure
from the Backbone product line
and fished with the lure until it
was either lost or unusable. Capt.
Paul Tejera, tournament director,
reported that 64 snook and 51
redfish were caught.
Proceeds from the tournament
benefited the Florida Keys
Children's Shelter in Tavernier.

Early dolphin show in good numbers


Free seminar
to focus on
Hawk Channel
The offshore fishing and
I'm not talking about way off-
shore has been very steady.
Dolphin have arrived in good
numbers for this time of year;
the water temperatures are up
enough to have them come in.
For the most part, the action
has been best close in, which is
good for those in smaller boats
or those who don't like to lose
sight of land. From the edge of
the reef, say about 5 miles out
from 100 to 550 feet, the action
has been quite good.
Tarpon are arriving in good
numbers into local waters now
too. Quite a few have been
noticed at some of their usual
hangouts. The easiest way to
notice if these .fish are new
arrivals is to hook one in excess
of 100 pounds; our resident fish
are usually well below that.


t i' Fishing
C. a live bait
just behind
the boat at
one of the
bridge
ed channels
-. last week-
end, I did-
n't hook
.a as w the intend-
1 sed snapper
y b, c but rather a
Huge tar-
Dave Navarro pon that
skyrocket-
ed into the night sky and just
about spooked everyone on,
board, as we were not expecting
the snapper to do such a thing.
Looking back on it, it was rather
entertaining (except for the one
man that needed to change his
shorts).
The tarpon activity should
only improve with time, and it's
a good time with the somewhat
cooler evenings to take advan-
tage of it. Live pinfish have
been quite effective as have


been large crabs. Live mullet
should be available from the
local sources soon, as well.
For those not into it hard
core, you can still take advan-
tage of this type of fishing while
enjoying a beautiful Keys
evening on the water. If you
have a boat and fish, try making
a nice dinner to go and bring it
on the boat with. you. Head to
one of the popular bridge chan-
nels where many will be fishing
for tarpon, but have a few baits
with you.
Anchor up, throw over a line
and enjoy the evening with your
dinner and a beautiful sunset. If
a tarpon bite interrupts you, it
will then be a bonus. It relives
the pressure of having to catch a
fish. Heck, most of the time of
people I know that do this, they
remove the line from the water
at dinnertime and just enjoy
watching others do battle.
Other areas of Keys waters
have been good, too.
Flats fishing has improved,
with an increase of the usual


species frequenting the shal-
lows more with the warming
waters. One area that has been
quite good throughout has been
Florida Bay. This area is contin-
uing to be hot with snapper and
trout.
Mackerel have slowed a little
but are still plentiful if you go
out more than 8 miles. This
fishery will be slowing soon, so
if you haven't loaded up yet
with your smoking fish, you had
better get to it, since March is
traditionally the last month you
can get them in large numbers
and size.
Hawk Channel is still pro-
ducing quite a few fish,
although you may need to hunt
down the larger schools some
more than usual. They are not as
widespread as they were a few
weeks ago. (that's why they call
it fishing). If you spend a little
time looking, you should do
quite well, as most have lately.
This is one of the most for-
gotten fisheries in the region yet
one of the most productive on a


regular basis. Knowing how and
where to work this area will be
covered at this Week's free fisite
ing seminar at our Marine
Educational Center at mile
marker 50 bayside. It's at 6 p.m.
Thursday.
Hawk Channel runs the
entire length of the Keys so it's
a good subject no matter where
you are in these islands. 4-"1
And finally, yellowtail activ-
ity should be red hot with the
dark of the moon just passing.
Currents shouldn't be too
strong, so most should be able
to work a productive chum line.
A good mix of other nice-eating
species has also been steady the
past week in this region.
The fish are available
throughout most venues. It's a
big sin if you don't go trying for
them.

Property that pays for
itself in the Keys?
