County Commissioner
George Neugent was on the
scene Tuesday morning after
some of his constituents called
asking whether the accident
stemmed from allegations over
a year ago that some of the
structure's pilings were not


installed correctly.
"Since this involves a ramp
up to the building and not the
terminal itself," he said, "I
don't think this is related to
those complaints."
In 2006, URS engineer Jim
Singletary warned county offi-
cials that pilings supporting the
complex needed more testing.
Koppel hired an outside firm to
test the pilings and they were
determined sufficient to hold
the structure, according to a
grand jury report issued in
September 2007.

He also said the various
local agencies involved -
including the county, city and
Tourist Development Council
- are not at any risk, as they
cannot release funding for the
Vandenberg until it is sunk.
He worries that the summer
will be tough on businesses
without the added tourism dol-
lars the ship would bring in.
TDC director Harold Wheeler
has said the project will drive
curious divers to the site, but
the long term tourism effects
could be negligible. The TDC
has pledged $1 million to the
project.
The city is lobbying the
state legislature and Office of
Tourism, Trade and Economic
Development to pay for cost
overruns totaling $2.4 million.
The legislature is expected


to vote today on a bill that
would'provide $1 million in
funding. The bill might prove
to be the lynchpin of the
financing, as other state funds
might go as it goes, Verge
said. He was less than opti-
mistic about the project's
future.
"Even if we get the money,
it may not be soon enough,"
he said. "It'd be a shame to
see it not happen, but if it
doesn't work, we'll move on."
The 520-foot long ship was
built in 1943 as a navy troop
transport. The ship saw limit-
ed action as World War II
wound down. It was renamed
after Gen. Hoyt Vandenberg
upon being recommissioned as
a missile tracking ship in
1963. It served as such for 20
years. The ship was later used
for filming the 1999 movie
"Virus."

Snake's alive


PYTHON /From 1

bors have spotted the snake and it
has them concerned for their
safety.
"They all know and are wor-
ried about it. I've got four kids
and they're always in the pool;
me or my wife have to be out
there with the kids all the time,"
Dieguez said. He has a barbed-
wire fence separating his yard
from the Hammock.
Several other neighbors told
the Keynoter they haven't seen
the snake, but heard it took up
residence at the Hammock.
Hammock Horticulturist John
Henderson visited with Dieguez
and said based on the description
it is most likely a Burmese or
reticulated python.
"All the snakes we see here
are natives and not near as big as
what Jerry said he saw. Other
than iguanas we don't have any
invasive species," Henderson
said.
Alison Higgins, The Nature
Conservancy's Florida Keys land
conservation program manager,
said despite their size, python's
don't pose as big a threat to
humans as other snakes.
"It's not the same type of neu-
rotoxins in a rattlesnake bite, but
it can be a nasty bite," she said.

Sea Oats cleanup
Set for Saturday

Volunteers can help bring
back greenery to Sea Oats Beach
on Lower Matecumbe Key.
A re-vegetation project will be
hosted Saturday by the Village of
Islamorada and the state
Department of Transportation,
beginning at 9 a.m.
"Volunteers are needed to help
plant native beach shrubs that are
being provided by- the Florida
Department of Transportation,"
said a village spokeswoman.
"Participation in this community
- service is a commendable gesture
and an excellent way to teach
children the value of volunteerism
and caring for our planet."
Sea Oats Beach, between mile
markers 74 and 75, has been
denuded by the 2005 hurricanes
and the DOT's project to improve
U.S. 1 on Lower Matecumbe.
Parking will be available, and


"They've been found with just
about anything and everything in
their mouths in the Everglades."
Several Burmese pythons
were captured recently in the
Upper Keys, the result of their
escaping to or being released in
the Everglades over the last 10
years.
"They've been feral breeding
in the Everglades and expanding,
which" we believe most of the
Key Largo findings were. But
everything not north of Key
Largo are [likely] pets running
around," Higgins said.
Higgins said reports of larger
snakes up and down the Keys has
led to the creation of the Florida
Keys Python Patrol. Anyone who
spots a snake or has seen one in
the past may call 1-888-483-
4681.
"They don't aggressively
attack people. What we don't
want to happen is people see
something slither and grab a
hoe," she said. "We would rather
have somebody maintain a safe
distance."
Florida requires a $100 annual
license to keep six reptiles as a
pet due to the threat they pose iK
lost or abandoned: Burmese
python, reticulated python,
African rock python, amethystine
python, green anaconda and Nile
monitor.


Islamorada will supply iced
water coolers.
Volunteers should dress for
hours in the sun. Staff urges helpers
to bring drinks, sunscreen, hat, stur-
dy shoes, gloves and a trowel.

7-Mile Bridge
Run is April 19

For anyone doing long-range
planning comes a friendly
reminder from the Marathon
Runners Club.
The 7-Mile Bridge will be
closed from 6:45 a.m. until 9 a.m.
on Saturday, April 19.
The bridge will be closed to
all vehicular traffic for the run-
ners safety.
So locals and visitors plan-
ning to traverse the middle Keys
that day should plan for earlier
starts to avoid the closure.
Or, do what the locals do and
watch the runners and delay any
auto trips for later that day.

Heather Carruthers running for BOCC


Faces two
challengers who
have announced
By ALYSON CREAN .
acrean@keynoter.com

Key West innkeeper and
insurance reform advocate
Heather Carruthers filed her
paperwork Tuesday, officially
entering the race for the District
3 seat on the Monroe County


Commission. Carruthers, a
Democrat, has over the past two
years moved into the limelight as
a board member of FIRM Fair
Insurance Rates in Monroe, a
grassroots organization that has
effectively challenged exorbitant
rate increased in windstorm
insurance premiums.
Carruthers went from becom-
ing a household name to a force
to be reckoned with in
Tallahassee when she was


appointed by then-Governor Jeb
Bush to sit on a statewide com-
mittee convened to revamp cus-
tomer service at Citizen's
Property Insurance Corp, the
state's insurer of last resort.
'Carruthers owns Pearl's
Rainbow, a guesthouse in Key
West.
"It just seems to me the coun-
ty is in a critical position right
now," she said. "It seems that it's
gotten away from the fundamen-
tal reasons for government. I'd
like to improve the possibility of


representative government by
representing all citizens in the
Keys.
"I'd like to bring back fiscal
responsibility and also bring
back transparency," she contin-
ued. "We have a real lack of trust
and a feeling that decisions are
made in a non transparent and
non deliberative manner."
Last week Key West architect
Carlos 0O. Rojas announced he
was seeking the seat. Several
months ago, Key West resident
Sloan Bashinsky announced he
would run for the District 3 posi-
tion. Rojas is a Democrat;
Bashinsky claims no political
affiliation.
Republican Incumbent Sonny
McCoy has not yet made public
a decision whether he will run


again. He's served two terms on
the county commission. Earlier
in his political career, he spent
ten years as mayor of Key West.
Three County Commission
seats are up for grabs in
November. The District 1 seat
race will pit incumbent
Republican Dixie Spehar against
Republican Kim Wigington and
Democrat Bill Estes. In the
Upper Keys, Republican incum-
bent Sylvia Murphy has one
challenger for the District 5 seat:
Republican Gary Bauman, cur-
rently chair of the Key Largo
Wastewater Treatment District.
Qualifying runs from June 16
through June 20. The primary is
scheduled for Aug. 26 and the
general election is Nov. 4.

Higher median income reported in Keys 7 eBrige


HUD figures raise
concerns for Keys
housing task force
By ALYSON CREAN
acrean@keynoter.com

Monroe County's median
income rose from $59,400 in
2007 to $65,200 for 2008.
Now it's up to the Monroe
-County affordable housing
task force to decide whether
that's a realistic figure to use
when determining income
guidelines for workforce hous-
ing.
The task force convenes
Thursday at 9:30 a.m. at Key
Colony Beach City Hall. "
The median income is a fig-
ure determined by the federal
Department of Housing and
Urban Development, or HUD.
"We never use that num-
ber," Monroe County's afford-
able housing coordinator Lisa
Tennyson said. "The median
income may not be the most
accurate index to use. Maybe


we should be looking at the
median wage."
Tennyson said the median
income number fluctuates,
sometimes wildly. She added
that basing the cost of afford-
able housing units on that fig-
ure could end up raising the
cost of individual units.,
The .weird part, she said, is
that local incomes do not seem
to have risen 9.5 percent over
the past year that the median
income figure has increased.
"What is happening,"
Tennyson said, "is we're get-
ting an exodus of working
people and an influx of
wealthy retirees. Nobody got
raises last year."
Though the local Housing
Authority must base its pric-
ing on the HUD figure, the
county can set its own guide-
lines, Tennyson said. She said
the county's formula allows
for an annual increase of 2
percent to 4 percent. That
allows developers and home-
buyers a fairly stable market-


place.
"When the median income
went down between 2006 and
2007, it shakes the confidence
of lenders and of buyers," said
Tennyson. "That's why, when
I saw this year's increase, I
decided to turn to the task
force. They're not happy with
the wild swings."
The county has been work-
ing on comprehensive plan
amendments that would set an
even rate of equity in afford-
able housing units over the
next few years by setting a cap
on how much the value of an
affordable unit can increase
annually. The Monroe County
Planning Commission has
approved the proposals -one
for units sold to individuals
and one for rental units -.
Now the County
Commission needs to approve
those proposals before the
Department of Community


Affairs can send them to
Tallahassee for review and
approval.
Also on tap for Thursday's
meeting: the Florida
Legislature's mandate to cre-
ate an affordable housing
advisory committee.
The existing task force "is a
beautiful fit" with the require-
ment, Tennyson said.
"The legislation is really
positive," she said. "It legit-
imizes the task force and its
current makeup."
Some people have criti-
cized the fact that developers,
Realtors and bankers sit on the
task force. But the state man-
date requires exactly -those
same players sit on the adviso-
ry board, she says.
The County Commission is
expected to approve creation
of the advisory group at its
regular monthly meeting on
April 16 in Key West.

Owner facing
$25,000 in fees
for repairs
By KYLE TEAL
kteal@keynoter.com

A boat owner will have to
pay about $25,000 in fees,
after an antenna from his ves-
sel struck a electric transmis-
sion line by the Niles Channel
Bridge, causing power outages
from Big Pine Key to Key
West in the early morning
hours Tuesday.
According to Keys Energy
Services spokesman Julio
Barroso, no one was on the
boat when it was dragged into
the 50-foot line, causing the
blackout to occur at about
1:30 a.m. .
It was a relatively simple
glitch for personnel to identi-
fy, Barroso said.
"Thankfully, it was in the
early morning," limiting the


amount of calls from con-
cerned residents, he said. "We
had to send a crew out in the
middle of the night, and they
had to navigate the channels.
That's what took time."
A generator was activated
and brought power to many
homes in Key West, Key
Haven, and Big Coppitt by
about 3 a.m., Barroso said.
The line was up and running
and everyone had power by
4:30 a.m.
Sea Tow Florida Keys was
called to tow the boat away
from the bridge. The owner
will pay those towing fees,
along.with generator costs and
overtime for Keys Energy
employees.
Barroso said similar inci-
dents with sailboats occurred
in the Pine Channel Bridge
during the 2004-05 hurricane
seasons, leading to tighter
anchorage restrictions.

Latest twist on taxes makes no sense


EDITOR:
It seems like only yesterday we passed the
"Save Our Homes" legislation, thus capping
property taxes on homesteaded property at a 3
percent per year. The express purpose was to
halt unbridled tax growth on people's homes.
The poster child for this movement was the
little old lady being unfairly taxed out of her
home by the uncaring politicians. At that
time some of us raised two questions:
1. If this was supposed to be saving little
old ladies (and little old men's) homes, then
why did it include everyone else under retire-
ment age
2. By leaving all commercial property fair
game to taxing bodies, those renting
apartments would continue to absorb an
unfair percentage of the tax burden as nothing
in the law restricted government
growth.
The result today is that the unprecedented
growth in the value of homes and govern-
ment, when taxed as per the "Save Our
Homes" initiative, has continued to widen the
gap in the share of the tax burden carried by
each party.
It is now plain to even the most casual
observer of this experiment that those in our
society who can least afford it (renters) are
paying a very disproportionate ever increas-
ing part of the total tax.


Now comes the latest attempt by the
Florida Legislature (cloaked, you guessed it,
as tax relief) to put into place an equally
unjust law by increasing sales tax and cancel-
ing school funding by the property tax.
The cost of this regressive proposal will
fall mostly (as a percentage of income) on the
young consumer families and those who rent,
and will profit most those who own expensive
homes. This switch will exacerbate an already
failed and discredited and unfair taxing situa-
tion by piling still more tax on the young.
Those legislators and senators who come
from senior rich (high percentage senior vot-
ing demographics) counties love this because
it will get them re-elected and the poor work-
ing guy or gal won't know why but their pay-
check will be stretched thinner.
And then, kind of as an afterthought, we're
told that the tax switch will have a shortfall in
the billions and they, the legislature will let
us know where that will come from later.
Now if none of the above concerns you
much, then ponder this: Do we really want to
tie education funding to something as volatile
as sales tax revenue? Isn't that a big part of
what got our state into this financial-mess in
the first place?

Try novel approach to sewer conundrum


EDITOR:
After reading in the media of all of the dif-
ficulty in obtaining funding for the state-man-
dated sewering of the Keys, I have come up
with a novel idea for mitigating this problem.
I have been reluctant, up to now, to mention
my idea, as it runs counter to current think-
ing, and it would require considerable
courage on the part of the Legislature to
implement. But, here goes.........
In my working career, which involved jus-
tifying and implementing large-scale capital
projects, I came to realize that the ability to
influence the cost of a project was inversely
proportional to the percent completion of the
work. It then follows that 100 percent of the
cost could be avoided by not starting the proj-
ect at all. This leads to.my suggestion.
The Florida Legislature by their 1999
action has mandated central sewage treatment
for all of the Keys. But it has become-appar-
ent to some of us that this one-size-fits all
approach may not be necessary for all areas.
For example, here on Ramrod Key, our
Breezeswept Beach Estates Civic Association
has determined that our waters have been
meeting state water quality standards for the
seven year period during which we have been
conducting a test program.
Under the leadership of a resident who is a
retired marine biologist, we have been taking
monthly water samples from our canals and
the nearshore waters of Newfound Harbor.
These samples are then sept to the University
of Florida for analysis under their Lakewatch


program.
Now to the specifics: I suggest that the
Legislature re-examine its 1999 action that
resulted in the severing mandate, and consid-
er whether provision might be made for selec-
tive exclusion where scientifically justified.
That is, in simple words, allow some commu-
nities to continue to use their existing ofn-site
wastewater treatment facilities where water
quality already meets established standards.
Think of the millions of dollars that could
be saved!

Rescue came in the nick of time


EDITOR:
After a full day of boat prepara-
tion, we set out on a fishing expe-
dition. With fuel, food, water,
flares, cell phones, whistles, horns,
etc. we felt totally prepared.
We ventured to the patch reefs.
As we began our journey trolling
back to shore, a chilling wind
picked up. We lost a comfort
cushion on the way. We turned to
retrieve it, thus tangling the fish-
ing line in the prop.
As we both struggled to untan-
gle it, we found ourselves leaning
over each side of the transom. All
of a sudden, the stern filled with
water. It seemed like no more
than three seconds had passed
before the boat capsized.
As all of our supplies drifted
rapidly out to sea, we were grasp-
ing. for anything we could reach.
We managed to hang on to the
drifting boat and retrieve a gaff,
throw cushion, and a small cooler.
We were left with only one foot
of the boat above water. As the
sun fell below the horizon, it
became considerably colder. Our
efforts to flag a passing boat were
futile. After fighting the shivery
waves and the nippy wind for
hours,-darkness was upon us.
Dan said, "Whatever you do,
don't cut yourself!" Well, I was
reluctant to admit that it was a lit-
tle late for that, as if we needed
something else to worry about. At
this point, I'm thinking nobody
even knows that we are out here.
Let me tell you, being an avid
swimmer means nothing when you
are freezing and almost five miles
out to sea with a strong current
pulling you farther out. The life
jackets were wedged in a compart-


meat under the boat. When Dan
submerged to recover them, my
thoughts were, "We're going to
die!"
He was under for so longs I
feared I'd lost him. He finally
emerged and tossed a life jacket
over to me. When he was on his
way down for another one, he
prayed, "God send a boat!"
Before he-resurfaced, a vessel
appeared out of nowhere. I
remember waving the life jacket
desperately and screaming as the
boat passed us.
My heart- fell, but I continued to
wave anyway. The boat suddenly
stopped and turned towards us. I
cried tears of joy, and still do,
when I reminisce of that moment,
realizing that this was our last
chance of any hope. It was sec-
onds before the sky would become
total darkness.. There was no way
anyone else would have seen us,
and we wouldn't have survived
through the night. Hypothermia
had already begun to set in on me
when these two saviors fished us
from the unforgiving waters of the
cold Atlantic Ocean. It if hadn't
been for them, I wouldn't be here
to share this story today. These
two men literally saved our lives.
For that, we thank them, from
the bottom of our hearts, Gary
Cross and Tim Telford of Cross
Sheet Metal, LLC, of Key Largo,
Florida, for being our guardian
angels on that dreadful night. I
would also like to. add, "don't ever
think you are prepared for every-
thing!"
Thanks again Gary and Tim.

Septic tanks can become landscape cisterns


EDITOR:
In a recent letter, Joseph Supp of
Marathon made a valid point when
connecting to central sewer systems
in the Keys, we should be authorized
to convert otherwise abandoned sep-
tic tanks to landscape cisterns.
Such a program already exists.
My friend Fran Wagner is a hero
who prevailed (despite substantial
. bureaucratic resistance) in convinc-
ing the state that such conversions
should be authorized. His septic tank
was the first such conversion in the
State of Florida.
Conversion requires some simple
procedures and relatively low cost,
especially considering that the alter-
native is a requirement to pay for the
decommissioning and filling of the
abandoned septic tank. .


The first step is to get a variance
for you (or your community to
spread the cost) from the Health
Department. Call 289-2721.
On May 10th at the Marathon.
High School, Fran is scheduled to
give a workshop on the subject as
part of the Third GLEE (Green
Living & Energy Education)
Exposition (www.keysglee.com)
which will also feature displays,
vendors and workshops on solar
power, water conservation, building
green, biodiesel, selecting energy- .
and water-efficient appliances, glob-
al warming, green transportation,
green lodging and more than two
dozen other interesting and informa-
tive topics.

Stay the course on investigation


EDITOR:
Amidst a corrupted county and plan-
ning commission, the Monroe County
State Attorney's Office fragrantly exudes a
cleansing breath of fresh air. The integrity,
honor and courage exhibited by Mark
Kohl and his staff is evident in their deci-
sion to proceed with an investigation into
the conduct of this chronically tainted
group of politicians.
Kohl's leadership and fearless commit-
ment to re-establish a county government
that has a constitutional foundation where
no one is above anyone of our laws,
demonstrates his valor and determination
to fight for the legal rights and expecta-


tions of all his constituents.
Sanitizing and stabilizing the tragic and
scandalous course of action taken by these
commissioners is an enormous task.
However, the principled strength and char-
acter of yourself and staff will generate the
power to dismantle every obstruction that
is placed on your path towards the sun-
light.
Please stay the course. Forensically fol-
low the money, relationships and peddled
favors that were arranged between the
county's affiliates and the' corporate devel-
oper's hirelings.

Squeeze hurts those struggling to get by


EDITOR:
There is today a generally accepted
agreement in Marathon that a sewer is
needed and that it will be built. It is
also recognized that it will cost a lot of
money and that the funding will come
largely from local sewer users.
The City Council and its advocates
have worked hard to get outside finan-
cial aid, but as of now, it appears that
such help will be limited and it will be
primarily Marathon citizens who foot the
bill. The result will be an estimated
charge of about $100 per month for each
connected residence. It has been sug-
gested, by a city official, that this sum is
not an excessive charge.
Marathon is a relatively well off com-
munity and for the majority this is prob-
ably a reasonable assumption. However,
the direct effect of the new surcharge
will be to raise the effective cost of liv-
ing in Marathon by about $1-00 per
month for every household.


We hear endlessly how difficult the
"affordable housing" situation is, and yet
here we are, hitching up the cost of liv-
ing, and in the process, making housing
even more problematic for the very peo-
ple struggling the hardest to stay here.
Now perhaps this cannot be helped.
Perhaps things will just go on for the
most of us, as always, with only a
scarcely felt tremor. Those who cannot
make it here will just leave quietly and
their absence by and large will.not be
noticed.
Some will say we are entitled to clean
water and if certain people become dis-
placed as a result, then so be it. Perhaps
they will be just as happy somewhere
else. anyway, they say. Others will say
that when we squeeze out one segment
of our society, even if just the few, we
who remain, become something less.

Law firm is 'dedicated' to public


EDITOR:
The recent Monroe County School
Board member's attempt to fire attor-
ney Dirk M. Smits and his law firm,
-Vernis & Bowling of the Florida Keys,
P.A., left me stunned. ,
Also, the way it was brought up
without being on an agenda should not
have happened.
The Board made the right call to
delay because now you can hear my
two cents. Dirk and his firm have done.
a great job for our start-up taxing dis-
trict in .Key Largo (The Key Largo Fire
and Emergency Medical Services
District). -
Dirk and his firm,\ I believe, are ded-
icated to government service, a point
that was made clear to me -when he
agreed to represent our District for free
in .the first year of our existence.
Members of The Monroe County
School District Board, a dedicated
group. like Dirk and his firm are an
asset to any government, in my opinion.


Think hard before you consider
changing.

Daylight savings
EDITOR:
"When the summer sets, think of an old
Indian custom."
Daylight savings time has its root in an
Indian practice. This was not reported in
the Miami Herald, as per Wednesday
Keynoter editorial, 4/2/08.
The aforementioned Indian practice
was to cut a blanket in half, then sew it
back on the opposite side to make the
blanket longer. I hope this puts more
"light" on the subject. Pun intended.

Utility selling acreage to state


- maybe


By ALYSON CREAN
acrean@keynoter.com


The Key West Utility Board is
looking to sell some 55 acres of
undevelopable land to the state, but
revenue shortfalls in Tallahassee
might not bode well for the sale.
The Florida Cabinet, sitting as
the Board of Trustees for the
Internal Improvement Trust Fund,
will consider buying the Cudjoe
Key parcel for $1.9 million through
the Florida Forever program.
"It's right across from where a
diesel substation used to be," said
Keys Energy spokesman Julio
Barroso. "We own it but we cannot
do anything with it."


Keys Energy formerly City
Electric has owned the parcel
since 1967. The acreage fronts on
Blimp Road and is bisected by an
asphalt road. Though the neighbor-
hood is sparsely residential,
Barroso says it's better suited to
preservation.
It's classified as an "A" project,
which gives it top priority among
potential acquisitions. But the
future of Florida Forever, and con-
servation funding in general, is up
in the air as lawmakers in
Tallahassee struggle with a slowed
economy and the resulting shortfall
of tax revenues.
Midway through the 2008 leg-
islative session, the Senate has a.


proposal to fund land acquisitions
through Florida Forever. The
House, however, is proposing zero
funding.
Sarah Williams, spokeswoman
for the Department of Environ-
mental Protection, says that if
there's no funding, purchases that
are in the pipeline -like the Keys
Energy parcel might be delayed.
"If there's no funding, we can-
not close on those properties," she
said, "until there is funding avail-
able."
Williams says DEP has been
working with legislators to come
up with a solution during the budg-
et crunch.
"We've preserved 2.3 million


acres," said Williams. "Every time
the voters are given a choice, they
support land conservation. And
both houses and Gov. Charlie Crist
have expressed support of a suc-
cessor program."
Florida Forever ends in 2010.
That proposed successor program
would take up the preservation
mantle. Florida Forever is itself a
successor program, having
replaced the state's Preservation
2000.
If the' sale does go through,
Barroso says the utility board
wants to earmark the $1.9 million
for "system improvements." :
The money would help clean up
the soil at the utility's old diesel


plant across the road from the par-
cel they're selling.
"People will recognize it as the
place we have the tree giveaway,"
said Barroso. "This would be to
clean the soil and bring it back to a
pristine condition."
The board also wants to upgrade
the Key West service building so
that it would withstand a Category 5
hurricane, he says.
"Right now it's built to with-
stand a category 3," he said. "But
that's where we house our emer-
gency workers during a hurricane,
and dispatch and our control center
are housed there."
The Cabinet convenes on April
15 at 9 a.m.

Thursday at the Masonic
Building, off U.S. 1 bayside, near
Froggy's Fitness.
At the March meeting of the
Tavemier group, several members
expressed concern about propos-
als to pave the northbound shotil-
der up to 10 feet wide in places,
for use as an emergency evacua-
tion lane.
Monroe County Commissioner
Sylvia Murphy, a past TCA presi-
dent, contended the DOT inten-
tionally spoke sparingly of the
project, and listed it as "resurfac-
ing" in the agency's Five Year
Workplan for Monroe County.
"They know this is a hot but-
ton," Murphy said at the March
TCA meeting. "They got caught
short, having to defend something
we were not supposed to know
about."
Group member Dick Lancaster
described the two-year project,
running from mile marker 93 to
marker 106, as "an ill-conceived
mess."
Tavernier resident John
Hammerstrom, who researched
the project, will make a presenta-
tion on his concerns Thursday.
Those include safety issues with
the wider shoulder and opposition
to more pavement.
"I plan on a courteous, open
dialogue ...to find common
ground with our friends at
FDOT," Hammerstrom wrote in a
recent e-mail to the agency.
Harold Desdunes, design engi-
neer for DOT's Miami-area dis-
rict, will lead the:agenco presen-
Cario6n Thursday :


The TCA also plans more dis-
cussion on a plan to build a 36-
unit affordable housing project at
Burton Drive and U.S. 1, the
entrance to the Harry Harris sub-
division.
Members have questioned the
project's aesthetics, parking and
effect on traffic at the busy inter-
section.

Key Largo
Issues including the possible
sale of the Rowell's Marina prop-
erty will be discussed at 7 p.m.
today by members of the Island of
Key Largo Federation of
Homeowner Associations.
The open meeting is held at the
Key Largo Library's community
room in Trade Winds Plaza, mile
marker 101.4.
Rowell's Marina, one of the
last open waterfront properties on
Key Largo, was sold for potential
development as a condominium.
Developers, however, have
been unable to win approval of a
controversial plan to transfer a
residential building-permit alloca-
tion from the Lower Keys. Under
local and state law, Monroe
County is extremely limited in the
number of new living-unit permits
it can issue annually.
Federation members say they
have received information that the
Rowell's property, coveted by
many residents as a park site, is
back on the market.
Other development issues,
including the county's working-
waterfront law, and a possible
zoning change at the Snapper's
restaurant *site, also are on the
agenda.

Shallow water restrictions alarm guides


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


Anglers and guides who wrote
their own plan to manage Florida
Bay management stand by
Alternative E, says Islamorada
angler Jim Trice.
"A really small group of three
or four individuals has caused a
lot of alarm in the past few
months," said Trice, who spear-
headed efforts to craft Alternative
E as a counterproposal to
Everglades National Park plans.
"They don't speak for us.
They're advocating things that
would negatively affect our guide
community," Trice said.
Everglades National Park staff
is working to update the park's
General Management Plan, with
a good deal of attention focused
on further protections to the back-
country of Florida Bay.
Opposition to a set of the
park's four suggested proposals
to manage Florida Bay called


Alternative A through D last
year caused Superintendent Dan
Kimball and park staff to rework
its draft plan.
Alternative A would have not
changed anything in bay manage-
ment; Alternative D would have
closed large areas of the shallow
bay to motorized vessels.
About 200 Keys anglers,
guides and residents turned out at
two Upper Keys hearings on bay
management in June 2007. Boat
groundings and bottom-scarring
"are issues we need to address
with this plan," Kimball told the
crowds.
The public response to the
more-restrictive plans was over-
whelmingly negative.
Guides Sandy Moret and Tad
Burke were among a handful of
frequent bay users who helped
craft Alternative E in response to
the park's draft alternatives.
Kimball hailed Alternative E
as a valuable addition to the


process but has not publicly
endorsed specific aspects of it.
Recently, a handful of bay
fishermen including noted angler
and skiff builder Hal Chittum
proffered proposals to park staff
and fishing magazines, suggest-
ing rules to ban motor use in
Florida waters less 3 feet deep.
They also suggested limiting
outboards to 90 horsepower and
capping the number of licensed
guides at current levels.
"We are not disparaging them
as individuals but they speak only
for themselves," Trice said. "It's
caused a lot of noise and concern
that kind of upset the guide and
angling community down here."
Trice said his group has
received "hundreds and hundreds
of calls and emails," asking if
they changed Alternative E.
"Finally we had to go public
and say, no, we haven't," Trice
said.
The 3-foot-depth limit would
restrict engines "in almost all of
Florida Bay. They're essentially.


closing the bay," he contended.
They also strongly object to
limits on the number of fishing
guides. "You're telling young
people they can never go into the
guiding business," Trice said.
Alternative E has been
endorsed by resolution of the
Monroe County Commission, the
Islamorada Village Council and
local chambers of commerce.
Under Alternative E, smaller


areas would be placed off limits
of motor use (kayaks and push
poles would be permitted). Some
type of Florida Bay permit would
be issued to boaters who demon-
strate a knowledge of bay naviga-
tion.
' Everglades planning specialist
Fred Herling said the national
park will re-issue a set of draft
alternatives '"in two to three
months, realistically."


Third death raises concern


Keynoter Staff-


A third homeless death in just
over a week has some homeless
people nervous. But the three
deaths are completely unrelated
and two are not, considered suspi-
cious circumstances, according to
Key West Police spokeswoman
Christie Phillips.
A 49-year old man was found
dead Monday in front of Office
Max on North Roosevelt
Boulevard in .Key West. The


man's identity las not yet been
released pending the notification
of next of kin.
Police officers found the man
sitting slumped on a bench out-
side the store. A witness had seen
him slumped over, looked for a
pulse, and dialed 911, according
to the police report.
On Thursday, 38-year-old
Jessee Calderon was found dead
on Rest Beach. There was no foul


play suspected, says Phillips.
On April 7 the body of 59 year
old Michael Stanier was found at
the boat ramp on Key Haven.
Stanier had been in the communi-
ty for several years and was
known as Gypsy. The Monroe
County Sheriff's Office is look-
ing into Stanier's death.
Anyone with information
about the case is encouraged to
call Crime Stoppers of the
Florida Keys. The hotline is (800)
346-TIPS.

The Monroe County
Commission will take one more
shot next week at adding a penny
gas tax to help pay for the main-
tenance of county roads and
bridges.
The commission meets
Wednesday at the Harvey
Government Center in Key West.
The so-called ninth cent fuel tax
is scheduled for a 3 p.m. public
hearing.
Last month, the commission
approved this hearing while
shooting down another gas tax
that would have added another 5
cents to a gallon of gas.
County staff has pleaded with
the commission to consider the
tax since most of the 28 bridges
that the county is responsible for
maintaining are nearing the end
of their lifespan. The county is
also responsible for the upkeep
on nearly 400 miles of secondary


roads, and the money to keep
them in shape is evaporating
quickly.
"We're spending more money
than we're taking in," county
Public Works Director Dent
Pierce told the commission in
November, when the gas taxes
were first proposed
The county has the option of
imposing an added one-cent tax
on an existing fuel tax. The first 8
cents of that local optiori tax are
currently collected only on diesel
fuel, but the extra penny could be
collected from all types of fuel,
says County Attorney Suzanne.
Hutton.
Commissioner Sylvia Murphy
has supported the idea. She says a
gas tax is a fair way to collect the
new revenue because tourists
would pay a portion of it, and
tourists use the roads.
According to County
Engineer David Koppel, the ninth


cent tax would raise over half a
million dollars for road repair
annually. And the additional
penny would be negligible, he
says, in the light that there's
already 48 cents in taxes collect-
ed at the pump for every gallon of
gas.
According to Koppel, 18.4
cents is collected in federal taxes,
23.7 in state taxes and another 6
cents is collected by the county.
Commissioner George
Neugent noted that the dwindling
funds for repair will have a trick-
le-down effect within county
government.
"The resources will be drawn
down to where we'll have to let
our construction crews go," he
said. "And it will be more expen-
sive to go outside and contract
any work that we can afford to
have done."
"We have to take care of the
roads," said Pierce. "It's a
requirement. It's a severe safety
issue."


Bahama trust wants housing


By KYLE TEAL
kteal@keynoter.com


Key West's Petronia Street
could become a gateway to a
new, vibrant community of work-
ers and residents on the Truman
Waterfront, when the Bahama
Conch Community Land Trust's
plans for 6.6 acres on the parcel
come to fruition.
The Land Trust held its last
brain storming meeting with
county and city representatives
Saturday to discuss plans for 60
to 70 affordable units, with 875-
square-foot apartments renting
from $875 to $1,250 per month.
.. "I don't want to see anything
that looks like projects anything
sterile," Deputy Director Wheeler
Winstead said of the architectural
design.
Land Trust Executive Director
Norma Jean Sawyer said the city
has 161.9 rate-of-growth ordi-
nance allocations in its stock. She
estimates the proposed project,
which encompasses 53,000
square feet, wouldn't take more
than 70 allocations.
"I hope they get the ROGOs,"
City Commissioner Clayton
Lopez told the Keynoter Monday.
Lopez's district includes Bahama
Village.
Concerns over whether the
Land Trust could gamer the nec-


essary building permits for all of
the proposed units prompted
attendees to consider the possibil-
ity of some apartments under 600
square feet
Those units only require a
fractional ROGO allocation,
or.55 of a full allocation, officials
said.
Monroe County Circuit Court
Judge Wayne Miller recently
ruled that ROGO expired six
years ago. And as a reaction, the
City Commission on Feb. 29
restricted the approval of any
market rate development projects
until a new, viable building per-
mit allocation system is drafted.
Land Trust members dis-
cussed desires for a distinctive,
bright Bahamian color scheme in
a community of shops, apart-
ments and streets that would
encourage pedestrian visitors.
The group also brainstormed
architecturally attractive court-
yards and rooftop gardens ripe
with lush vegetables -and fruits,
nourished by rainwater collected
in the neighborhood.
Open air markets and orna-
mental, Caribbean flowering will
line the entrance. Boats will drop
off seafood near the waterfront
community, and residents' gar-
dens could serve as secondary


and primary means of income,
according to architect Bert
Bender.
Apartments are planned to
spring up on top of businesses,
but Bender said he'd like to see a
mixture of units at the ground
level and above shops.
The project should kick off
within 12 to 18 months, accord-
ing to Winstead.
The group's consensus on
parking was to stick to the bare
minimum of what city code
requires. Sawyer said the project
accounts for 120 available spaces
for residents and 155 for com-
mercial purposes.
"I would appeal for less park-
ing," County Commissioner
,Dixie Spehar said.
Land. Trust members have
long said they don't want to
recreate Duval Street, with tacky
T-shirt shops and loud bars.
Attorney Jerry Coleman cau-
tioned the group not to discrimi-
nate against businesses, but
advertising to specific businesses
to set up shop is doable, he said.
The Land Trust is currently
negotiating a 99-year lease for
the 6.6 acres on. the Truman
Waterfront. The non-profit says it
earned the right to the lease when
voters approved their plans by
about 55 percent on the Nov. 6
ballot.

Director John Woodson said
he rode along with DBPR

Woodson said about 15

"These guys were on the

"With current economic stan-

contractors to compete."
"We certainly have a need
to keep up with the contractors

According to Woodson,
once investigators approached

Food bill passes, helps homeless


Restaurants
couLd assist
food pantries
By ALYSON CREAN
acrean@keynoter.com


With a simple sentence the
Florida Legislature could fill a
few more empty bellies. A bill
that adds restaurant meals to a
list of foods that can be pro-
vided to the needy has passed
both houses of the Legislature.
Named for the middle
school student who started it
all, the Jack Davis Florida
Restaurant Lending a Helping
Hand Act will allow food pre-
pared by restaurants to. be dis-
tributed to homeless shelters.
Unless it is vetoed by Gov.
Charlie Crist, the bill would
become law on July 1.
Already, perishable foods
from grocery stores, bakeries
and other retailers have been
approved for donation. This
bill adds to the definition


foods "that have been pre-
pared at a public food service
establishment licensed under
[state law]."
"I am very hopeful it will
benefit the residential facili-
ties, particularly those for
women and children," said
Rev. Stephen Braddock, exec-'
utive director of the Florida
Keys Outreach Coalition for
the homeless.
Social service budgets are
getting hammered as the
Legislature looks to shave bil-
lions off of the current state
budget. A slowed economy has
brought in less revenue than
had been anticipated when the
2007-08 budget was crafted,
and the Legislature is trying to
play catch up.
"The budget cuts will
reduce pur ability to purchase
bulk food," said Braddock.
"I'm hoping, with this bill,
that restaurants, caterers and
private clubs might step up
and help."


He said he'd like to see
these businesses sponsor din-
ners to aid shelters.
"Many restaurants and pub-
lic food service establishments
have expressed a desire to
donate-food to homeless serv-
ice providers and shelters,"
said Lesa Weikel in a state-
ment released Thursday.
"However, most have been
reluctant to do so because of
the liability that may result."
Weikel is a Tampa-based
spokeswoman for the Florida
Coalition for the Homeless.
Davis is likely one proud
sixth grader. The 11-year-old
student from the Ransom
Everglades prep school came
up with the idea as part of a
social studies project after
noticing the huge amounts of
leftover food that restaurants
and hotels throw away on a
daily basis.
With the help of his attor-
ney father; Davis was able to
bring the idea to the attention
of legislators, and the bill was
born.
According to a story in the
Miami Herald, the Florida
Restaurant and Lodging
Association supports the bill-.

Gator killer


jailed again


Police report
says Goll
broke probation
By KYLE TEAL
kteal@keynoter.com

Timothy Goll of Marathon
was arrested Monday for violat-
ing the terms of his probation,
according to the Monroe County
Sheriff's Office.
Sheriff spokeswoman Becky
Herrin was unable to provide the
details of the violation.
Probation officers weren't avail-


able and the Monroe County
Clerk of the Courts couldn't pro-
vide information.
Goll, 20, was arrested April
2006 for allegedly killing an alli-
gator in Big Pine Key. He was
sentenced to six months in
prison and a five year probation
period, along with Jordan Milo,
in September.
Goll was released Oct. 23 for
good behavior, but Milo was
detained for using drugs and
alcohol on Nov 12 while work-
ing" under jail supervision,
authorities say.


Western Union

is coming' home


Keynoter Staff

The Schooner Western
Union is scheduled home to
Key West Saturday after
months under repair in Miami,
according Theo Glorie, a
board member for The
Schooner Western Union
Preservation Society.
The ship was to return
home at the end of February,
but organizers ran out of
money and had to secure a
loan to pay the ship's rising
bills, Glorie said. The Western
Union will not be able to carry
passengers until it is Coast
Guard certified, but its current
owners say the necessary
repairs were made in Miami.
They hope to sail again in
May.


The historic ship is the last
remaining of its type built in
Key West. The Western Union
gets its name from its days
laying cable for the Western
Union company. It has served
various duties since, including
a stint nearer to the mainland
in a program for rehabilitating
troubled teens.
Historic Tours of America
owner Ed Swift returned the
boat to Key West a decade ago
where he operated the ship for
sailing tours. The ship fell into
disrepair and was put on sale
,last year, when its current
organizers raised money and
bought the ship as a non-prof-
it organization.

up shop in by the middle of the
month.
Peggy Russell, a retired
architect, says she turned her
love of design into a wedding
organizing business. She hopes
the chapel, which will double as


an art gallery, can grow her
business.
"I ... make custom invita-
tions and place cards and thank
you notes goodies bags all
the accessories for weddings,"
she says.

Bellisima Glass
Creations
Barbara Lomba knows the
Keys are filled with artisans
selling their wares. But she says
Lazy Way is the perfect place to
make and sell art.
"It reminds me of the funki-
ness that is Key West's soul,"
she said. And its got a nice traf-


fic between ferry terminal and
Schooner Wharf bar.
She hopes to open her busi-
ness, Bellisima Glass Creations,
within days, selling gem and sea
glass-filled jewelry as well as
candles and other Keys-specific
gifts.

Captain Quick Dry
The final business moving
into the strip this month is real-
ly already there. Steve
Greenfield hopes to open a
business selling quick-drying
and protective clothing for
boaters and fishermen.
The business, Captain.Quick


Dry, won't open for some time.
But he's open temporarily in a
different spot as Stingray
Steve's.
Greenfield says he's been
selling the clothing for more
than a decade in the Lower
Keys. This is his first foray into
Key West.
The happy tale of a revital-
ized Lazy Way did not come
about without some controver-
sy. The strip was rented for
years to Ron Scott, owner of the
wedding business Chapel By
The Sea. He then sublet to the
other spaces, which city offi-
cials say violated the lease.

Wesley House rolls out red carpet


Movers 'n shakers
get first-hand
look at programs
By KYLE TEAL
kteal@keynoter.com

Wesley House Family Services
educated Keys movers and shakers
on the ins and outs of the non-prof-
it Sunday evening in Key West.
"Its more than just an organi-
zation that throws a great
Valentine's Day party," Board
Member Julio Barroso said.
Stations were arranged next to
an open bar and a scenic court-
yard to provide information on a
variety of programs within the
organization: adoption services,
community enrichment, child
development centers, employee


benefits and family resource and
childcare services.
Wesley House has locations in
Tavernier, Marathon and Key
West and "provides the majority
of child care costs for more than
1,250 low income and at-risk
children each year...," according
to Wesley House officials.
The child development center
serves more than 200 children
from a variety of backgrounds,
from infancy to age 5.
Adoption services include spe-
cial courses that teach model par-
enting, free public adoptions
including legal fees, guidance
from a case manager, and some-
times monthly subsidies and
tuition exemptions.
"A lot of the families that adopt
are out of area," Adoption Services


Rebecca Knickmeier said.
Director of Continuous Quality
Improvement Kevin Collins said
that since 2004 the number of
employees in the non-profit has
doubled to 110 across the Keys.
The newly renovated "state of
the art" Inez Martin Child
Development Center at 1100
Varela St. in Key West should be
open by June, Collins said.
That $1.35 million project will
allow Wesley House to expand
capacity for childcare. Chief
Executive Officer Doug Blomberg
said Inez Martin is licensed for
102 children.
During renovations there, chil-
dren were moved to facilities on
Stock Island, including the United
Methodist Church.
With Inez Martin opening,
capacity will increase by about 50
percent, Blomberg said.


Wesley House opened the first
full-time childcare facility for
working parents at Inez Martin
location in 1971. Now the group
serves more than 200 children
across the Keys, from infancy to
five year olds
Blomberg said Wesley House
is still short nearly $400,000
needed to pay off the remainder
of the renovation expenses. The
bulk of the $1.35 million has been
paid through private funds and a
matching grant of $200,000 from
the Eckerd Family Foundation.
The weekend gathering at
Bryan Green and Tony Konrath's
Watson Street home drew big
names from fields like politics,
medicine and the arts.
Judy Garland was the star of
the event, handing raffle winners
plants and a handbag she
designed. .

the Waterfront Playhouse, kicks
off with a reception from 6:30
to 7:15 p.m. Sunday.
The three previous singa-
longs have all sold out, accord-
ing to sponsors.
The event is a fundraiser for
the GLCC and will be hosted by
Edna Turnblat. Cost is $25 and
includes a reception from 6:30-
7:15 consisting of complimen-
tary burgers, hot dogs and chips.
A cash bar will be available.
"If you've been to the
Wizard of Oz, Sound of Music
or Grease Singalong you know
the fun that it is in store," spon-
sors said. "Many people come
in costume, but -costumes are
not required. There will be cos-
tume contests prior to the
event."
Prop bags are provided so
during the show patrons can
interact during the singalong to
words displayed on screen.
The show is scheduled to
begin at 7:30 p.m.
A preshow rehearsal will
allow participants to know
exactly what to do when the
show begins. The costume con-
test will also be held during the
pre-show and prizes will be

invited to enjoy the show. Cost
is $10 and adults may attend if
they are accompanied by a
child. Snacks will be sold to
benefit Key West High School's
GSSA organization.
The original John Waters'
movie, Hairspray, became a cult
classic and a hit Broadway
musical. Anyone who grew up
with American Bandstand in the
50's can relate to the real-life
Buddy Deane dance show in
Baltimore in the 1960's.
According to the London
Free Press, Waters remembers
being apprehensive. "It is the
story of a white man's memory
of the integration movement,"
he said. "But I was nervous,
thinking, 'Is this funny? Can
you make a comedy out of it?'
It is still pretty touchy."
The 2007 remake was
described as "smart, relevant
and entertaining" with a cast of
John Travolta, Christopher
Walken, Michelle Pfeiffer,
Queen Latifah and newcomer,
Nikki Blonsky, as the plus-sized

Deliveries aim to
give patients
more choices
Not many would associate
hospital food with room serv-
ice, but Lower Keys Medical
Center hopes to change that
perception.
The nutritional services
department at the hospital is
rolling out a new a la carte
menu service for patients.
A hospital spokesman says
the room service will deliver
meals directly to patients
much like fine hotels provide
room service to guests.
"Once the order is called
in, it goes to the kitchen,
where every meal is made to
order and a nutritional staff
member reviews the order to
ensure that each patient
receives appropriate food for
his or her personal diet plan,"
the hospital spokesman said,
adding that meals are "deliv-
ered to the bedside within 45
minutes or less."
Patients can place meal
orders anytime from 7 a.m. to
5:30 p.m., seven days a week.
The new service is featured as
"room service" on bedside
phones. Patients may elect the
automatic meal of the day.
There is no additional charge
for this new service.
"Our new program is
intended to improve the over-
all inpatient' experience,


enhanced the food service pro-
gram, and provides options to
patients within the dietary
guidelines identified by their
physicians," Chief Executive
Officer Nicki Will said.
Lower Keys Medical
Center's service area extends
from the Seven Mile Bridge to
Key West. With a total staff of
approximately 500, Lower
Keys Medical is the largest
private employer in Key West.

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!

The Marathon High School
girls tennis team fell short of its
goal to finish in the top two at
Monday and Tuesday's District
16-1A tournament.
The Dolphins finished in


third place, just one point
behind a Palmer Trinity School
team it defeated twice during
the regular season.
"Our goal was to come in
No. 2, but we fell one point
short," coach Mark Hooper
said. "I thought our results
would be better, but overall I'm
pleased with the way the team
played. There (are) areas we

Sanders "was working every-

Ray Ferro.
"I had another complete game
[against Archbishop Carroll],"
Sanders said, "but this was bet-
ter. We didn't win the other one."
"That was a nice game, all
around," said Hurricane head
coach Jeff Meyers. "There was
great pitching on both sides."
Spanish River pitcher Kevin
Wotjanek held Coral Shores to
just three hits but they all


came in a row, when Coral
Shores scored both its runs in a
third inning rally.
After George Suarez and
Mike Loguercio reached on
walks, infielder Fabian
Placencia slapped a single.
Sanders followed with a bunt
single, and Noble capped it with
an RBI single to left field.

said the pair prevailed despite
tempers flaring a bit.
"We had a bit of an argument
with Palmer. They' called the line

Rose Bellevue and Wonderlin

"1 played well, but when I

maybe I can do it," Brossard said.
"She had more experience and

time," Meyers said.
The Hurricane defense was
reshuffled to give all the seniors
on the roster the opportunity to
start, but the Canes still allowed
just one error in the game.
Spanish River (10-12) scored
its only run on a bases-empty
home run.
Coral Shores closed late
threats by the Shark, with two
runners on and no outs. In the
fourth, Ferro fielded a bunt and
threw to Noble at third to catch
the lead runner. Sanders struck


out the next two hitters.
Sanders walked the first two
hitters he faced to lead off the
seventh, but then struck out the
next three to seal the victory.
The win at home was espe-
cially welcome after the
Hurricanes went 1-3 at the
Lincoln National Tournament
played in Tallahassee over last
week's spring break.
"We knew that we'd be fac-
ing some really tough 6-A

wanted to play that kind of game
to get some experience and
that's exactly what we did."

Gootee: 'Best game' effort


CONCHS / From 25

Hidalgo, who allowed one. St.
Brendan scored the winning run
in the bottom of the seventh
inning when a throw to the plate
by Jianna Hernandez got by
catcher Natalie Dudley.
The Conchs had their best
,chance to score in the sixth
inning when the St. Brendan
catcher threw wildly to third
base in an attempt to pick off
Gigi Orofino. The ball, however,
hit David Gootee in the coach's
box, and Orofino was unable to


score.
Hernandez had the Conchs'
only hit in a defensive battle that
was highlighted by a diving
.catch by left fielder Kristen
Babich that prevented St.
Brendan from scoring in the first
inning.
Gootee said it was Key
West's best game since a season-
opening victory against Pace,
adding, "It was very much like a
playoff game, with great intensi-
ty and a focused effort."
Key West was expected to
end the regular season with a
home game Saturday against


Doral Academy, but Doral
decided not to make the trip. On
Tuesday, Gootee was still look-
ing for a replacement.
The Conchs must win next
Wednesday to advance to the
state playoffs, and they need two
victories in the tournament to
win the district title and play
host to a regional game for the
.second consecutive year.
"[Our players] believe that,
with our team fully intact for the
first time in more than a month,
that we can win the district
championship again," Gootee
said.

Keys Fishing


Offshore
As soon as April gets
here, the fronts are fewer, but
the w ind machine has turned
on high. and %won't shut off
Some charter boats that
headed out to the deep blue
endej up turning around
with customers a shade of
deep green. Some hearty
anglers did post good catch-
es of dolphin. Capt Don
Clark on the Sea Horse
racked a good bunch of
"mahl" one da\ with one
fish o er 25 pounds. Capt.
Wayne Ka\ adas on the Blue
Clip showed off a mixed
bag of dolphin, and tuna
with one blackfin weighing
in at 22 pounds.

Reefs
The king mackerel action
is still \erN good Capt Paul
on the Skipper boat did a
number on the kings and
added a 35-pound wahoo to
the fish box on TuesdaN.
Yellowtail Snapper fishing
will be the thing to do as
soon as the wind la.s do%%n.
Anchoring on the reefs edge
to snapper fish in this wind
would be a real roller coaster
nde. On the Southern
Comfort from Whale Harbor
Marina, one lucky angler
released a sailfish nmd week.

Gulf and Bay
Although many captains
would love to get out into
the Gulf. the fishing is most-
ly confined to the shallow
areas of Florida Bay. Gulf
w aters are muddy and this
week with the new moon
tides are really running hard
making conditions difficult.
Look for trout and snapper
throughout the bay to be a
good bet as soon as the wind
allow s.

Flats, Backcountry
and Flamingo
It is reported that bone-
fishing is still good despite
the milk\ water moving
through the bridges. With
the water temperature in the
upper seventies, the summer
species like tarpon will turn
on soon.

Square in Key West.


Baby blues ... and Cal


In fishing,
and in life
it's about timing
I'm a little melancholy. I'm
not ashamed to admit that my
most looked forward to time of
the year is mid-April and for one
reason alone: the opportunity to
be involved in the World Sailfish
Championship.
This year, the stork is throw-
ing a monkey wrench into what I
see as an all-time best line-up for
the World Sailfish, in entertain-
ment as well as competition.
First, I must vent on the baby
situation. Being a huge Cal
Ripken fan, his wife Kelly knew
all about timing. Cal and Kelly
had two children during his
streak of 2,130 consecutive
games played which broke
Lou Gehrig's all-time best streak.
One Ripken baby was born on
a rare off day during the baseball
season and the other in the off-
season. Now that's timing. -
I, on the other hand, have zero
timing as my baby boy number 3
is due smack in the middle, of the


Wor rld
Sailfish,
which runs
from April



g Christopher,
Same right
w h e nr
Maryland
was gearing
up to play
Duke in
Cal Sutphin basketball;
Char l ie
came a month early and now this.
For a person who has never
fished any day in the previous
four years of the World Sailfish
Championship, I'll try to explain
the magnetic draw that has
gripped me to count the days
until the World Sailfish arrives.
What separates the WSC from
the hundreds of other sailfish
tournaments in the State of
Florida are General Norman
Schwarzkopf, Johnny Bench,
Duval Street, Don Shula,
Hemingway Days Festival, Guy
Harvey, Hall of Famer Wade
Boggs, a military fly-over,.


ESPN's Norm Isaacs, country
musicians Billy Currington, Brett
Jones, Dallas Davidson and Kyle
Jennings, ex-Dolphin John
Offerdahl, Mallory Square sun-
sets, the daily dock parties, the
nightly dock parties, the parties,
oh and did I forget to mention
$100,000?
Most importantly, it's where
you go to see and be seen by the
leaders of our industry, fishing..
It's not uncommon to be sitting at
Capt. Tony's Saloon after a dock
party and find yourself chatting
with Norm Isaacs or Wade
Boggs. Or walk into Starbucks at
7:30 a.m. and run smack into
retired General Norman
Schwarzkopf or Football Hall of
Fame coach Don Shula.
The great equalizer between
me and all of these seemingly
untouchable people is fishing.
Start a conversation off, "I'm a
big fan" and you may get a cold-
er reaction than "How's the fish-
ing been?" Everyone involved in
the World Sailfish are all about
fishing, whether they are hunting
sailfish during the competition or

Avid anglers stay the season for best action


Dolphin on move
and smart trolling
holds the Key

The transition has begun. We
are saying goodbye to more and
more of our winter residents
daily. As things thaw up north,
they return to their summer stay.
We see more and more of what
I call spring anglers. They are the
ones who like to come in for a
month or two to hit the start of the
dolphin season, while still catch-
ing a good run of April sailfish.
They also are here for the start of
the tarpon run as well as some of
the best bonefishing of the year.
They. have learned to target a
shorter stay with the best options
for good fishing.
What seems to happen is that
we have visitors who come and
go just about the same time as the
fish species in the adjacent
waters.
Now, it is not that specific that
we can time the departure of the
cobia to the Michigan residents or
the mackerel with the departure
of the New Yorkers, but it is
somewhat hand-in-hand with a
general movement.
One thing I've noticed in the
past couple of years: avid anglers
are staying a little longer to hit the
tarpon as well as some good dol-
phin.
What will be happening is a
* great run of sailfish this month. It
is usually when we have a strong
east wind with the current near


Dave Navarro


the edge of
the reef.
This caus-
es 'tailing'
conditions
and we tra-
ditionally
see tons of
sails mov-
i n g
through.
W e
have been
having
some of
this for the


past couple of weeks now. Cobia
are known to be in with them as
well, which makes for exciting-
days just offshore.
The only problem for fair
weather anglers is that the best
conditions for fishing are not the
best conditions for people. The
rougher it is, the better the fish-
ing. (In other words, eat a
smooth breakfast.) A big fish on
the end of the line tends to calm
down the seas, at least mentally.
Dolphin are usually moving in
more and more as we get closer to
mid-April, and from reports that I
have heard lately, they are right
on time. Some of the largest fish
of the year are in this early batch,
say from mid-April through mid-
May.
It is more common to find a
few big fish than large schools of
smaller ones for the next few
weeks. You still come in with
similar poundage to lots of
schoolies, without all of the
cleaning. The only thing about


'Much needed'boost'


BLUES / From 30

poling after tarpon, like fly-leg-
end Stu Apte likes to do during
the four-day event.
Sincere congratulations go
to Chris and Bryan King and
the whole staff of CSM
Marketing for coordinating this
monstrosity of a potential fias-
co with seeming fluidity year
after year. Even organizer
Chris King admitted that it is an
extremely difficult task to ful-
fill when you truly are at the
end of the world.
In a time whensnowbirds
flock home, spring; breakers


have sprung back to college,
and tourists are awaiting their
refund check from Uncle Sam,
this world-class event brings a
much-needed boost to the
island of Key West.
Well, when everyone each
night next week are planning
their strategy for the next day,
or asking the questions like,
"Will Ray Rosher win again?"
or "Will a Keys team take
home the trophy and $100,000
this year," I'll be scratching for
an hours rest in between the
cries of an exhausted wife and a
newborn boy. Boy, what tim-
ing. ,


them being more spread out is,
that you have to cover ground to
find them. This is a great time of
year for higher speed trolling to
accomplish just that.
High speed trolling as well as
many other techniques of trolling
will be covered at this week's free
seminar at our Marine
Educational Center, located at
5050 Overseas Hwy. It's held
from 6 to 8 p.m. and will feature
many options of what is offshore
now along with what type of
trolling works best for the differ-
ent species that are available. We
will also discuss when to fish
deep and when not to.
Other than offshore, the action
has not been spectacular but
remains solid. Good schools of
yellowtail have been found in
shallower water than usual. The
depths of 40 to 50 feet have been
the most productive as well as
having quite a few big mangrove

snapper.
Hawk Channel has been good
for grouper and cobia for the past
week or so. The humps and
bumps have been fair, but drifting
the open, bottom has been the
most productive for the larger
ones. The bay has been solid on
snapper and very good on trout.
Cobia, grouper and mackerel
have been spotty, at least for the
keeper-sized ones.
One thing that has been
noticed by many anglers is the
number and size of the remoras
that are around wrecks as well as
open bay bottom lately.
Sometimes you may have as
many as 40 or more eating right
out of the chum bag. The things
sound just like a vacuum sucking
the chum out of the bag. Usually
when you had some of them
come up, the cobia or at least the
sharks were not far behind. But
that has not been the case so far


this spring from what I've hoard
as well as experienced.
I'm not sure why so many are
'loose' as opposed to being
attached to some predator. (But
they sure are fun to stick on a
tourist arm!)
Tarpon fishing has excelled
dramatically in the past week or
so and it looks like a great season
is upon us. If you get the chance,
go! They have not been disap-
pointing. Don't forget about the
International and the Ladies
Tarpon Tournaments that are
coming up next month.
The International is May 1, 2,
3 while the ladies have their turn
May 9th and 10th. They are a
great time and very competitive
every year.

Local,

Financially Strong,

Safe & Securel


Dear Keys Neighbors,


Following the news, one may wonder how the challenging economy is affecting the Keys and more
specifically the only locally owned and operated Keyswide bank left in Monroe County.
Despite these challenging economic times, the Board of Directors and I want to assure the Keys
Community that First State Bank of the Florida Keys remains financially strong, stable, secure and is
prepared to meet any economic challenge.
First State Bank has a strong balance sheet, is well capitalized with more than double the required
liquidity and has achieved consistent financial performance including:
V Solid Annual Earnings!
V 18% growth in capital!
4 Designated "Well Capitalized" by regulators!
V No sub prime credit exposure
With a knowledgeable local Board of Directors, 200 dedicated employees, and a focus just in
Monroe County, First State Bank is prepared to help our Friends in the Keys through these
challenging times while continuing our community leadership with civic donations, volunteers
and support of local schools and non-profits.
First State Bankofthe Florida Keys is an important part of the fabric of Keys life and we welcome
all residents to personal experience our old-fashioned customer service, full service banking, the
convenience of 13 Keyswide branches, wide network of ATMs, and our local lending expertise.
As we meet challenges in the economy, First State Bank of the Florida Keys will be here, as it has
been since 1955, to support the changing financial needs of our residents while supporting the
communities where we work and live.
I welcome you to visit any branch office for a free copy of our 2007 Statement of Condition that
clearly illustrates the financial strength of your Local Bank. We appreciate the opportunity to
serve our community by providing Local Solutions for Local Challenges.
