Kohl, Ward



already



battling


Challenger calls
out incumbent
on his record
By RYAN McCARTHY
rmccarthy@keynoter.com

Political newcomer Dennis
Ward is opposing incumbent
Mark Kohl in what is already
shaping up to be a contentious
race for November's Monroe
County state attorney election.
Kohl claims Ward is running a
negative campaign, including
passing out bumper stickers read-
ing "Dump Kohl," something he
says he won't do.
Kohl, a Republican, has been


in office since 2000 and is seek-
ing his third four-year term.
Ward's a Democrat. Both live in
Tavernier.
"There may be some 'Dump
Kohl' bumper stickers out there,
but that doesn't make it a nega-
tive campaign," said Ward, an'
assistant county public defender
in the Upper Keys.
Ward said he's opposing Kohl
for several reasons, but his main
claim is Kohl's "lack of vigorous
prosecution as far as domestic
battery cases."
In particular, he points to the
case of 43-year-old Andrew

Stimulus checks Feds move forward


start arriving


Keys residents
split on how they'll
spend the cash
By KYLE TEAL
and RYAN McCARTHY
kteal@keynoter.com

Keys taxpayers who've been
excitedly checking their mailbox-
es have an important decision to
make: What to do with their eco-
nomic stimulus check.
In an effort to partly revive
our nation's suffering economy,
the federal government is mailing


out one-time stipends to encorr-
age spending. Some Keys resi-
dents have already received their
dough; it helps if you requested
direct deposit on your 2007 tax
refund.
This month, the U.S. Treasury
Department started sending out
payment to more than 130 mil-
lion households, according to the
Internal Revenue Service.
The order of who receives
their checks depends on the last
two digits of their Social Security

Small vessels
facing more
U.S. scrutiny
By KEVIN WADLOW
Senior Staff Writer
kwadlow@keynoter.com


A federal plan to tighten
oversight of all boats off U.S.
shores took a step forward this
week.
The U.S. Department of
Homeland Security has released
its Small Vessel Security
Strategy report, a 57-page docu-
ment outlining terrorism con-


cerns.
South Florida's marine-relat-
ed-businesses are keeping an eye
on the process, which may result
in new regulations or equipment
requirements.
"We are fully supportive of
efforts to ensure the security of
our waterways and coastlines
but it all has to be done within
context and reason," said
Gordon Connell, director of
association services for the
Marine Industries Association
of South Florida.

College grads walk Friday


Commencement
is at Williams
on Stock Island

Ninety-five students are
scheduled to walk across the
stage Friday night at the
Tennessee Williams Theatre to
receive degrees and certificates
during the 42nd commencement
ceremony of Florida Keys
Community College.
The 7 p.m. ceremony at the
Stock Island campus will mark
the first for college President Jill
Landesberg- Boyle, who took he
post last August.
College officials say that for
the 2007-08 academic year, 176
students will graduate from the
college. Some completed their
graduation requirements as early
as August last year but not all
participate in commencement
College officials say that of
this year's graduates, 30 are
from nursing, 18 from business


and data processing, 14 from
computer technology, 11 from
corrections and criminal justice
and six from marine sciences.
Ninety- -seven will receive an
associate's degree in arts for uni-
versity transfer.
De Anne Bardell will be the
keynote speaker and receive
dual degrees, an associate's in
computer information technolo-
gy and a certificate in business
data processing. Upon gradua-
tion, Bardell plans to stay at the
college and pursue two more
degrees before she and her hus-
band, who is with the U.S. Coast
Guard, move to Central Florida.
"The old lady is doing it
again," says Mary Ann Don, a
77-year-old graduate from
Marathon who drives daily to
the main campus in Key West to
take classes. Don, who already
has degrees from the college in
graphic design and multi-media
technology, will receive a third


on Friday, the associate's in arts.
Fifty graduates are the first
generation in their families to
attend college, and of them, four
are "college explorers" who
have participated in the school's
College Reach-Out Program
(CROP) from as early as sixth
grade in Monroe County.
"It will be a thrill to watch
these students walk across the
stage, especially since at one
time they were considered to be
at-risk for even graduating from
high school," CROP
Coordinator Carrie Groomes-
Davis said.
College board Chairman Ed
Scales will speak at the com-
mencement and the college will
honor Sheriff Rick Roth with its
inaugural Distinguished Alumni
Award.
Additionally, the college will
recognize several faculty and
staff members who are retiring
after 25-plus years of service.
Student awards and distinctions
will also be presented.

cution," he
said.
Ward also
S- cites "per-
ceived blatant
disregarding
of Sunshine
Law require-
KOHL ments by the
Monroe
County Commission" as a reason
he is running.
Ward pointed to a February 3-
2 County Commission vote
approving broad revisions to an
ordinance designed to protect the
working waterfront. Attorney
Jerry Coleman prepared the revi-
sions on behalf of his client,
Robbie's Marina owner Robbie
Reckwerdt.
Some contend commissioners
might have discussed the ordi-
nance beforehand because they
voted on it minutes after being
handed the revisions.
Ward pointed out that
Coleman and Reckwerdt have
contributed to Kohl's campaign.
"You see these antics and you
think, 'What's going on?'" Ward
said.
"We've investigated a number
of them; there was no credible
evidence to support them," Kohl


said. "It
sounds like
he's going to
'F _ prosecute
someone with-
out evidence
and that's not
something a
state attorney
WARD should be
doing."
Kohl said he questions Ward's
experience and commitment to
the Keys, pointing out Ward was
not a registered Monroe County
voter until the day before he filed
to challenge him in December.
Ward said he has worked with the
Public Defender's Office for
more than two years.
"I'm a' career prosecutor with
over 400 cases. Mr. Ward, as far
as I know, never tried a felony
case," Kohl said. "My belief is
one of the things you need in a
state attorney is someone with
experience to run the office."
Ward admits he has not tried a
felony case but said he's put
many felons behind bars during
his career as a Miami Beach
police officer.
"I think people are fed up with
the way the government is work-
ing in Monroe County," he said.

Public defender


gets another term


Enright
automatically
re-elected
By RYAN McCARTHY
rmccarthy@keynoter.com


Rosemary Enright -says she's
flattered she wasn't opposed in
her bid for a fourth term as
Monroe County public defender.
"It's kind of an honor.
Hopefully people think I'm doing
a good job. We work hard here
and try to do a good job so it's
nice," she said.
Enright filed to run for anoth-
er four-year term Jan. 14 and
qualified April 30 by collecting
petition signatures. But since no
one filed to run against her, she
was automatically re-elected.
Enright said she came to the
Keys in 1988 and began working


. mu
with the Public
Defender's
Office in
Marathon.
"I still
enjoy the job
and I have a
red d great staff.
We're kind of
ENRIGHT like a family
and most of
the offices in the Keys are like
that," she said.
Budget restraints have
reduced Enright's staff from 45
full-time employees to 40 the
past year. She said she makes do
by maintaining low overhead.
"I understand the hardships
for the staff. We've had a tough
budget year the last couple
years," she said.
"I don't even have a secretary.
If you get a letter it's from me."


Traffic deaths
now number 12
for Mbnroe
Keynoter Staff
A local man died of injuries
after being struck by a car Friday
in Key Largo - the area's sec-
ond: traffic death in a two-day
span.
Both victims in the unrelated
accidents were on foot trying to
cross U.S. 1 when hit.
Charles Kampo, age undeter-
mined, died early Saturday after
being flown to a Miami trauma
center, according to the Florida
Highway Patrol.
Kampo was walking across
the northbound lanes of U.S. 1,
toward the bayside near the traf-
fic triangle near mile marker 99.5
at 8:40 p.m. He was struck by a
1997 Dodge driven by Samuel
Ortiz, 23, of Homestead.
After the collision, Kampo
rolled onto the grass median of
the highway. He was treated at
the scene by a Key Largo
Volunteer Ambulance Corps unit,


then taken to the Key Largo
Ranger Station to be picked up
for a helicopter ambulance flight
to Miami.
Kampo wasn't carrying iden-
tification. He tentatively was
identified later as a person who
had lived in the Upper Keys for a
time.
No charges were filed at the
scene.
On May 2, Ramiro Ortiz
Velasquez, 19, of Key Largo was
killed when he tried to cross U.S.
1 near mile marker 101. A Key
Largo woman, Neala Sullivan,
45, is charged with driving under
the influence in that incident.
Three pedestrians now have
been killed on U.S. 1 in the
Upper Keys in 2008.
Joyce Layton, 49, of Tavemier
died Jan.'12 when hit near Coral
Shores High School on the north
end of Plantation Key. No
charges were filed in that case.
All three fatalities occurred
between 8:20 and 9:40 p.m.
Kampo's was the 12th traffic
death south of Florida City this
vear.


"With 28 years in law
enforcement and 4 years
in the military, I am
experienced in working
with law enforcement at
all levels and unifying
efforts to provide safety
for the community. I have
the background and
experience to lead the
Sheriff's Office, and the
enthusiasm, dedication
and integrity that I know
you expect."

Cops ID murder victim


But the cause
of death still
under wraps
By RYAN McCARTHY
rmccarthy@keynoter.com

The Monroe County Sheriff's
Office has identified a woman
found dead behind a home on
24th Street in Marathon over the
weekend as 48-year-old Beth
Neumeier.
Sheriff's Office spokeswoman
Becky Herrin said a Monday
autopsy confirmed Neumeier was
murdered, though detectives are
withholding details of her injuries
and how she was killed. It's help-
ing them sift through tips
received about the case, she said.
Marathon resident Bernie
Perona found Neumeier's body
around 9 a.m. Sunday buried in a
mulch pile, according the
Sheriff's Office. Perona was
going outside to work in his yard
when he found the body and
called police.
""I was all shook up; they said
I was white," Perona told The
Miami Herald, adding he noticed

two legs and left the remains as
they were before calling police.
Detectives "believe she was
living in an apartment on 24th
Street," Herrin said. "They
believe at the time of her death,
she was perhaps working as a
prostitute."
According to a Sheriff's
Office report, detectives believe
Neumeier may have been dead
since Friday or Saturday. Perona
told the Herald he keeps a shovel
near the mulch pile in back of his
home, where he stores other


equipment for his pool service
business.
According to the Sheriff's
Office Web site, Neumeier was
arrested three times in 2001 and
2002 on charges including felony
cocaine possession, misdemeanor
marijuana and narcotic parapher-
nalia possession, and two proba-
tion violations.
Herrin said detectives believe
Neumeier's murder to be the first
in Marathon since *Larry
Leatherwood murdered popular
Middle Keys cook Mark Evans
on Halloween night in 2000.
Leatherwood is doing 40 years.


Spending plans differ


CHECKS/ From 1

numbers. Those with the lowest
numbers receive checks first.
Many people in the Keys said
the checks will go' to pay bills,
health care and to next year's
taxes. But some have other ways
to "stimulate" the economy.
Key West attorney Nathan
Eden says he's unsure if he and
his wife qualify for the check;
couples can make up to $150,000
annually to qualify, and those
who file taxes individually can
make up to $75,000. If he does,
his wife is expecting new alliga--
tor boots.
Key West kiteboarding
instructor Paul Menta says with
the current costs of fuel, his
check will fill his 19-foot boat
with gasoline. A recent spearfish-
ing trip was robbery at $4.50 a
gallon at the marine pump, he
says.
"It now cost me $40 more to
fill it up with gas than it did a
month ago," Menta said. "It's
cutting into fun."
Dion's fried-chicken manager
Debbie Stone said she needs a
new mattress, Whatever else she
buys will be purchased locally,
and the Key West Chamber of
Commerce is thankful for that.
In Marathon, Greater
Chamber of Commerce
Executive Director Daniel
Samess says while some will
likely use the checks for bills and
expenses, hopefully residents
will spend some extra money
locally. He says his wife will be
seeing most of their refund.
"It'll probably go toward
some bills and some local shop-


ping for the Mrs. I don't think I'll
see any of that personally,"
Samess said.
Marc Grossman, general man-
ager of Sears in Key West, said
Sears customers can benefit from
spending their entire check at the
store. A married couple receiving
$1,200 in the mail can put it all
into store credit and Sears will
add 10 percent to that "gift card,"
making the couple's spending
total $1,320.
Key West City Commissioner
Mark Rossi, who owns Rick's
and Durty Harry's entertainment
complex on Duval Street, says
residents could consider some
morale-boosting consumerism.
"Come on down to Rick's and
buy drinks for your crew," Rossi
suggested.
Marathon City Councilman
Mike Cinque said while he'd pre-
fer a long-term government solu-
tion, he'd encourage residents to
come have breakfast at his
Stuffed Pig Restaurant.
Cinque said he expects the full
$1,200 and joked he'll likely put
it on a horse at next Saturday's
Preakness Stakes.
"No, really, I'll put some of it
away," he said.
But Key West City
Commissioner Clayton Lopez
says his dough will sit stagnant
for a while. He's in a position to
save
"The way I see it, that ain't
federal money," Lopez said.
"That's your money."
Most individual taxpayers will
receive $600. Couples filing tax
jointly get $1,200.
For others, check amounts
vary.

Former Cay Club sites up for sale


Foreclosed
properties
now on market
By SAM NISSEN
snissen@keynoter.com

The Pilot House. Restaurant
and Marina in Key Largo and
other formerly Cay Clubs-owned
properties are on the market,
according to George Wilson, a
real estate agent at Prudential
Keyside Properties.
Other parcels for sale individ-
ually include residential lots in
Tavernier and Marathon, an
office building in Key Largo and
an apartment building in
Marathon, Wilson, said. The
Tavemier lots are under contract
to sell this week.
JDI, a Chicago-based real
estate investment firm, won the
properties in an auction stem-
ming from its foreclosure suit
against Cay Clubs. The company


said it was owed more than $7
million on a mortgage it had with
Cay Clubs.
Cay Clubs bought the proper-
ties amid plans to turn hotels into
upscale condominium resorts up
and down the Keys. Its efforts
grinded to a halt last fall and the
company faces a myriad of legal
battles across the state. Cay Clubs
lost much of its much-advertised
Keys holdings to various part-
ners, including JDI, Sunvest
Communities and the Singh Co.
The Pilot House property
includes boat slips and dry stacks,
a refueling station, a dive shop,
Calypso's Seafood Grill, two res-
idential homes and the namesake
restaurant. The parcels stretch
across from 1 to 15 Seagate Blvd.
and one of the homes is across the
water at 600 Portia Circle.
The whole package is listed at
$8.5 million, though Wilson said
it could be broken up.
"Of the properties they have,

"We are monitoring what
[government agencies] are doing
and thinking closely," Connell
said. "We want to make sure
they recognize that their ideas
and concepts may have unin-
tended consequences for recre-
ational boaters."
No specific regulations are
proposed in- the Small Vessel
Security Strategy but the
Department of Homeland
Security says it "will continue
working with maritime partners
to develop a ... small-vessel
security implementation plan,
which will put the strategy into
action this year."
The report says the "vast
majority" of coastal boaters are
law-abiding, but unwatched
activity "all too often involves
those engaged in illegal activi-
ties such as drug and migrant
smuggling.... [Waterways are]
equally open to potential acts of
terrorism."
Problem areas cited in the
report include:
* Lack of a centralized data-
base with boat and registration
information for more than 13
million boats in the U.S.


* Boats arriving in U.S. ports
with little advance notification,
and boaters who may be
unaware of reporting require-
ments.
* Boaters who have "a long-
standing public expectation of
totally unregulated access and
use of U.S. waterways."
One of objectives in the strat-
egy plan is to "improve detec-
tion and tracking capabilities to
better identify small vessels
operating in or near U.S.
waters."
Last year, federal fishery
agencies began requiring some
commercial boats to equip their
vessels with electronic monitor-
ing systems so their locations

Mother's Day includes

loving Mother Earth

Mother's Day is celebrated this Sunday. The day before, we
ought to pay homage to Mother Earth.
Thanks to the dedicated work of Green Living & Energy
Education volunteers you can do just that Saturday at Marathon
High School.
This marks the Keys' third GLEE Expo and this weekend's
showcase will set records for attendance and number of fact-
filled exhibits.
Although programs are scheduled Friday, Saturday and
Sunday, the big day for most will be Saturday, with the Expo
running from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. at Marathon's newly dedicated
campus.
More than 90 exhibitors will be on hand to answer questions,
showcase the latest in energy-saving technology, and even
teach some courses on such topics as solar, green lodging and
water conservation methods.
One sure-fire attraction at this year's event will be the 30
alternative fuel vehicles on display. Technology has made
progress since the earliest experiments with biofuel converter
kits. Witness the solar-powered car that stars on the Science
Channel, built by an Orlando enthusiast and an electric boat
nicknamed "The Sounds of Silence."
In keeping with the Going Green theme, transportation to and
from the Expo will be provided from Key West. Buses leave
Old Town starting at 7:15 a.m. on Saturday.
And when you get hungry, students in Marathon High's culi-
nary arts program will be making smoothies and veggie wraps.
In addition, local organic produce will be available for sale,
part of an educational outreach effort on food cooperatives.and
capitalizing on recent forays by organic grocers coming to the
Keys.
For more information about all the green living events and
exhibits planned, visit www.keysglee.org.

Donate food Saturday

For another way to honor nurturers in our community, please
remember Saturday is the food drive organized by U.S. Postal
Service carriers.
Throughout the Keys, letter carriers will pick up nonperish-
able food and make sure it gets to food banks, churches and
outreach programs in each local community.
Last year, this food drive brought in 13.5 tons of food from
donors. And organizers are hoping for an even more generous
drive this year.
As funding cuts hurt those families most in need, this is one,
positive way you can help your neighbors. And it's easy to
donate: stack cans or other nonperishable food at your mailbox
and your letter carrier will take of the rest.

Use stimulus checks to make the world greener


EDITOR:
This week, Jhe federal government will begin
to mail out stimulus checks to those who filed
taxes in 2007. The president's answer to the
country's economic meltdown is to offer taxpay-
ers a $600-per-person check in hopes of stimulat-
ing the economy through encouraging people to
further our conspicuous consumption habits by
buying more stuff.
Americans don't need more stuff; we are the
largest debtor nation whose collective consumer
debt rivals our staggering national debt, thanks in
large part to our president.
Consumers are left to make their own choices
about how to use this sudden windfall. The best
stimulus we as citizens can offer our lagging
national economy and our own personal econom-
ic future is by using this'check to go green. Here
are some ideas:
* Invest in energy conservation and efficien-
cy, which will not only lower your own electric
bill, but reduce carbon emissions and prevent the
need for more dirty coal or expensive and dan-
gerous nuclear power plants.
* Change light bulbs to CFLs or LEDs.
+ Install energy-efficient windows
* Upgrade to Energy Star appliances.
* Install a solar hot-water heater.
* Add insulation to the attic, walls and floor.
+ In the Lower Keys, sign up for the Keys
Energy Services' Go Green program, which adds


an extra amount to your bill to support clean and
renewable energy projects like solar and wind.
You can choose between projects in Florida or
elsewhere in the United States. This is a direct
investment in the future green economy, which
will provide domestic jobs and create energy
independence.
* Buy a bicycle and ride it. Save some carbon
and improve your health.
* Buy and plant shade trees around your
house. Trees absorb carbon and reduce demand
for air conditioning.
* Buy local and organic foods. Better yet,
plant your own fruits and vegetables.
* Support Key West High School's
Alternative Energy Center, which seeks to pre-
pare students for the green technology future
through projects in solar energy, water reclama-
tion and biodiesel made from recycling local
waste grease. When fully operational, the
biodiesel project would supply fuel for all school
buses at a savings of $200,000 per year to the
district.
* Become a member or sponsor of GLEE,
Green Living & Energy Education, at
www.keysglee.com. Your dollars help provide
education and sustainable solutions to individu-
als, businesses and policy makers in the Keys.
Now, that's stimulating.

Locals know when to help out


EDITOR:
On April 25, a gate was left open and our
family dog, Ellie, left our yard and was lost.
We immediately started to pass out flyers with
contact information throughout Marathon. With
each person we encountered, it was amazing
the humility, sympathy and compassion that
was displayed from so many people; not only
from people that we knew, but from total
strangers.
When it looked like we would never see our
Ellie again, on April 29 at 3:30 a.m., we
received a call from a young man by the name
of Tony telling us that he spotted Ellie on the
Sombrero Country Club golf course. Upon our
arrival to the targeted vicinity, our prayers were
answered and Ellie was once again home safe-
ly.
We all know that our little town has changed
in the past 20 years. But what has remained in
this community is the little-town feeling and

Coach still missed
EDITOR:
It's still hard to believe that my dear
friend, captain and former Marathon High
School Coach Ralph Gentry passed away
one year ago May 6. He was the greatest
man I ever knew. For those who knew him,
he is looking down on us with that knowing
grin on his face.

wonderful people that truly do care about their
friends and neighbors in their time of need.
SOur family would like to thank everyone
who saw our flyers and called us with sightings
of Ellie and those who prayed for us that it
would turn out well. To the local police, news-
papers, shop owners, the animal shelter and
total strangers who opened their hearts and
support to make this story have a happy end-
ing, thank you all from the bottom of our
hearts.

Coral Shores's baseball Hurricanes ended the season at 14-12 this year.

Hurricanes appreciate the fans


EDITOR:
The players and. coaches of the
Coral Shores High School varsity and
junior varsity baseball teams wish to
thank everyone who helped support
the teams during the 2008 season. Not
only did many Upper Keys citizens
support the team through their atten-
dance at games, but they helped
financially as well.
Among local businesses and citi-
zens who gave their support were Dr.
Jim Boilini, Bank of America, the
Caribbean Club, Dillons, Publix,


Winn-Dixie, Charlie's Garage, DBA
Looking Good Produce, Key Largo
Fisheries, Windy Day Plumbing,
DePaula Jewelers and Sundance
Construction of the Florida Keys.
Of course, many other individuals
contributed to the teams, proving once
again we live in one of the greatest
communities anywhere.

Some random questions about the news


EDITOR:
The helicopter landing photo on
the April 2 Keynoter front page
showed a person with deep pockets
with no regard to putting the Island
Christian School baseball players and
the crowd at risk with his noise
machine.
The caption should have read,
"Island Christian School will do any-
thing for a donation." The school has
no regard, either.
Also, on April 28, Page 10 of the
Keynoter, Donna Farmer with Maytag
Laundry said Coins Laundry has
already been sewered. Then why do
they have a "Closed" sign up all the
time? Yet people are coming and going


Letter writer is off base


EDITOR:
While reading the letters to the
editor from Mr. John Donnelly of
Key Largo concerning the Monroe
County State Attorney's Office and,
more recently, the exploitation of the
Keys by land speculators, it has
occurred to me that you should offer
him a position as an OpEd columnist.
Being a regular reader, I have
observed that he has those special
qualities necessary for the position.
He is a master in the fabrication


with laundry? Did they pay for the
hookup? Why advertise you're closed?
And with all the budget cuts to the
schools, state and county employees,
why hasn't the Florida Keys
Mosquito Control District's budget
been cut? They fly their helicopters
all around our island all day long and
they are not spraying. What is the
cost of one helicopter ride around our
island? Do they have a bottomless
fuel budget?

Editor's note: The story said the
Little Venice neighborhood, where
Coins was located, has been sewered.


and use of the flawed syllogism, a
consummate jeweler in the manufac-
ture of glittering generalities and most
importantly in possession of the gift
of hyperbole. Satire. A shred of truth.
A skewed point of view. A sense of
the absurd. What more could you
want in an OpEd columnist?
Hey, after all, an OpEd columnist
doesn't have to be right. He only has
to entertain his readership.

Murdered journalist

stands tall in death


You've probably never heard of Don
Bolles. Most people probably never
heard of Don Bolles.
That's a damn shame. He should be a
course all by himself not only in jour-
nalism school but in all studies of press
and civic freedom.
That's because Bolles was murdered
in Phoenix, Ariz., for uncovering a local
millionaire's dirty business practices
and writing about them for a newspa-
per.
I first heard his name when I was 13,
in 1976 - had a passion for papers
even back then. The Arizona Republic
reporter's car was blown up
June 2 that year with him
standing next to it. He had
three amputations before he
died 11 days later. He was
47. He left a daughter, age
20.
Friday, the Arizona Board
of Executive Clemency
denied parole for Max
Dunlap, a 78-year-old man
convicted of first-degree
murder for setting up the
contract killing.
The Bolles case had all the Larry
earmarks of a mob movie. Keynot
Bolles' stories about liquor
wholesaler Kemper Marley painted
Marley as a guy you didn't want to do
business with. So contractor Dunlap,
Marley's friend, decided enough was
enough and enlisted race-dog owner
John Adamson to off the reporter.
Adamson, in turn, got plumber James
Robison to help out.
On June 2, 1976, Bolles was lured to
the Hotel Clarendon by someone prom-
ising a news tip. There was no tip; there
was the car bomb.
Before he died, he was able to give
Adamson's name to the cops. Adamson
was arrested June 13, 1976, followed on
Jan. 15, 1977, by Dunlap and Robison.
When all the legal stuff shook out,
Marley, now dead, was never charged.
Robison was convicted of triggering the
bomb but later had the conviction over-
turned. Adamson, who planted the
bomb, was released from prison in 1996
and died a few years later.
Dunlap, who arranged the murder, is
eligible for parole in December 2014
(he was originally convicted and put on
Death Row, but the conviction was
overturned. His second trial brought
another conviction but not death; he got


e


25 to life).
In countries around the world, jour- -
nalists are murdered for exposing truth.
This year alone, according to the
Committee to Protect Journalists, eight
have been murdered because of their
work. The New York-based committee
is an independent group "defending the
rights of journalists to report the news
without fear of reprisal."
The committee also reports that since
our March 2003 invasion of Iraq, 127 '
journalists and 50 other media workers
have been killed in that country.
This happens. But it's not supposed to
happen in the U.S., where
the First Amendment is the
ground on which our repub-
lic is built.
Following Bolles' murder,
journalists nationwide were
so outraged at one of their
own being killed for writing
the truth that in an unprece-
dented action, they joined
for what became the Arizona
Project.
Newsday's Bob Greene -
a two-time Pulitzer winner
Kahn who died just this past April
?r Editor _ led the group of 38 jour-
nalists from 28 newspapers
and TV stations that converged on
Phoenix to get to the bottom of Bolles'
murder and send a signal that free voic-
es cannot be silenced. They wanted to
tell the story of how an open-air murder
could happen so nonchalantly.
On March 13, 1977, their labor bore.
fruit: Newspapers across the U.S.
debuted a massive 23-part series that
uncovered the underbelly of Phoenix's
most powerful and how deep the cor-
ruption went. It was simultaneously
printed in such papers as The Miami
Herald, Indianapolis Star, Boston
Globe, Denver Post and numerous oth-
ers.
While it didn't bring down a presi-
dent, one could consider the Arizona
Project among the most important acts
of journalism in modern times.
It brought sunshine to the darkness of
the circumstances surrounding Bolles'
death but, more importantly, reminded
us how easily voices of truth can be sti-
fled.

Project, visit the Investigative Reporters

Former NAS cop kills self


Boca police
suspended him
after rape report
McClatchy Tribune

A Boca Raton police officer
was found dead in his apartment
Sunday afternoon, four days after
a woman filed a police report
accusing him of sexual assault.
Eduardo Velasquez, 22, was
found in his bedroom by his
roommate who forced the door
open to check on Velasquez at
their apartment on the 6000 block
of Town Colony Trail in Boca
Raton. Velasquez had been on the
job about three months.
Velasquez was a master at
arms, third class, in military secu-
rity at Naval Air Station Key
West from August 2005 to
August 2007, when his enlist-
ment was up. He joined the U.S.
Navy in August 2003, NAS
spokesman Jim Brooks said.
Boca Raton police spokes-
woman Officer Sandra
Boonenberg said there were no
obvious signs of trauma on
Velasquez's body and a cause of


death would not be released until
there were conclusive findings. If
investigators have to wait for tox-
icology reports, a final conclu-
sion could take weeks or months,
she said.
Velasquez was placed on
administrative leave after a 23-
year-old woman accused him of
raping her Thursday morning.
Boonenberg said she could not
speculate on the findings of an
investigation into the allegation,
which was still pending. Any
report would have been forward-
ed to the State Attorney's Office
because the allegation involved a
law enforcement officer, she said.
Boonenberg called
Velasquez's death disturbing for
the department and said that the
Critical Incident Stress
Management Team had been
called in to assist staff members
who might need help dealing
with the case.
"Even though he's only been
there a couple of months, we con-
sider everyone family," she said.
According to the incident
-report filed in the alleged assault,
Velasquez was at his apartment
when he heard an argument
between two women. He separat-


ed the women and identified him-
self as an off-duty police officer,
then returned to his apartment
with one of the women, who said
she was "interested in hearing his
police stories," according to the
report.
The ivoman drank three beers
and two shots of tequila in less
than two hours, according to the
police report. The woman also
told police that she had consensu-
al sex with him but at one point
refused to engage in other sexual
acts but Velasquez continued,
according to the report.
The woman's friend, who had
been arguing with her earlier, told
investigators that she confronted
Velasquez about the allegation
and he denied raping her friend.
Velasquez is the second law
enforcement officer in Palm
Beach County to have died while
under investigation in less than
two weeks.
Palm Beach County Sheriff's
Deputy Samuel Peixoto, 38,
killed himself April 23 with a
shot to the head after setting his
car and West Palm Beach apart-
ment ablaze. Peixoto was under
investigation for manslaughter.

(328,002 pounds).
* A regional annual com-
mercial quota for gag grouper
that allocates 63.3 percent to
North and South Carolina and
36.7 percent to Georgia and

The ecosystem plan seeks
to reduce emphasis on single-

Insurance lawsuits finally settling


Litigation
was a result, of
Wilma damage
By KYLE TEAL
kteal@keynoter.com

Key West attorney Robert
Cintron has settled five federal
lawsuits filed against different
flood insurance- companies -
one recent settlement allowing
Key West City Commissioner
Clayton Lopez to begin moving
back into his home after more
than two years of living in a tem-
porary trailer.
Hurricane Wilma in 2005 left


many Keys homes in shambles or
in desperate need of repair,
including the six clients repre-
sented by Cintron. Those clients
. say they haven't gotten adequate
insurance compensation.
Lopez said his insurance
providers, after assessing his
home, bickered over which natu-
ral force caused damage - wind
or flood - and who was held
liable. As a result, he and his
wife spent the past two years in a
trailer provided by the Federal
Emergency Management
Agency.
Two companies at odds in his
case were Citizens Property


Insurance Corp., which covers
wind damage, and Fidelity
National Property and Casualty
Insurance Co., which covers
flooding.
Both have provided money for
the restoration. Citizens offered
$4,000 after a $5,000 deductible
and Fidelity's estimate on repairs
it would cover was about
$45,000.
But Lopez said it would take
more than $200,000 to fully
repair his home.
That's when he sued.
Cintron explored the possibili-
ty of trying to get a class-action
lawsuit against FEMA and flood
insurance providers Sunshine

said he couldn't garner enough
plaintiffs to proceed on class-
action status.
One lawsuit he filed against
Sunshine State still pending,
Cintron said.
Those insurance companies
must adhere to policies set by the
National Flood Insurance
Program, a component of FEMA
created by Congress in 1968.
Premiums paid to insurance carri-
ers end up in FEMA's bank
accounts, he explained, adding
that adjusters decide the claim.
FEMA caps its allowable
flood claim at $250,000, which
can be less than damages experi-
enced by some Keys residents,
FEMA spokesman Butch
Kinerney said.
"I'm almost convinced that
it's not as much the insurance
company as it is the federal gov-
ernment regulations," Cintron
said.
"The flood insurance is just a


cloak for FEMA," Lopez said.
While the settlement "wasn't
really what we needed or had
hoped for, at this point it's been
two and a half years and we need
something to move forward,"
Lopez said.
Due to FEMA deadlines for
trailer move-out, Lopez and his
wife Pam had to purchase the
FEMA trailer for $600. After
their home is fully repaired, he
said they plan to donate it to a
church and move back their
Amelia Street house.
Lopez said he filed his lawsuit
after trying to- resolve the situa-
tion without litigation.
"Once we got into the lawsuit
mode, it didn't take long at all to
resolve it under federal court
guidelines," Cintron said. "I still
think the industry continues to be
somewhat overwhelmed by flood
claims. I don't think there was
any evil motive on behalf of the
insurance company."

Port offices move


back to Bight


Staff to be
close to area
it oversees
By KYLE TEAL
kteal@keynoter.com


Key West Port Director
Raymond Archer wants to be
closer to the action.
He's packing up his office
things and moving his city
department to 201 Williams St.,
at the Key West Bight, where
staff can more closely monitor
the harbor they manage. By
Monday, the entire department is
expected to be in the upstairs
offices; Key West Bight Board
offices occupy the first floor
space.
Port operations offices are
currently in trailers at the
Truman Waterfront. Archer says
staff moved there after the 1995
U.S. Navy's Base Realignment
and Closure program deter-
mined 33 acres of that parcel as
excess property.
The Navy gave that land to
the city, stipulating that it be
used primarily as green space.
An assisted-living facility is
slated for the property, along
with an extension of the Bahama
Village neighborhood.
Now Archer says with the
:state Cabinet's recent approval
of a bight expansion that will
add up to .39 boat slips and
expand the historic harbor's bay
bottom to almost 500,000 square
feet, the area could use some
added attention.
"We'll be in the heart of the
Key West bight, which is a


major part of what the Key West
port operations does," Archer
said. "...it became difficult for
people to access us at the old
offices.
"The Marine Police Division
is still going to stay out there,"
he added.
And the bight's restaurants
and shops will be in close prox-
imity to city property manager
Marilyn Wilbarger's office. She
oversees leases between the city
and those businesses.
The pink building sits
between Turtle Kraals restaurant
and the Key West Ice Cream
Factory.
The department worked out
of those offices four years ago.
But with the Truman Waterfront
freeing up, the city felt staff
would be more effective at that
location.
According to Assistant City
Manager Mark Finigan, it's pos-
sible that when the waterfront
property sees new development
and a possible new harbor, the
offices will move back to the old
location.
"As Truman Waterfront prop-
erty unfolds, maybe you come
back over that way," Finigan
said.
He also said he's heard
offices for the Citizen Review
Board, the Key West Police
Department's independent
watchdog group, could be
moved to the waterfront trailers
"It's feasible that [City
Manager Jim Scholl] will relo-
cate the CRB to one of the trail-
ers," Archer said.

Hotel rebuild to start on Truman Avenue


El Rancho's
style going
Conch-like
By KYLE TEAL
kteal@keynoter.com

The-El Rancho motel.rede-
velopment project in Key West
will be under way before too
long, its architect says.
Part of the plan is to move
the rebuilt motel up to its prop-
erty line by 5 feet. No variance
was needed.
"We're going to start con-
struction," architect Jose


Gonzalez said.
The 30,625-square-foot El
Rancho is often referred to it
as a structure badly in need of
redevelopment.
An item to address a vari-
ance for the setback was set to
go before the city Board of
Adjustment tonight but
Gonzalez had it pulled it from
the agenda because it turned
out one isn't needed.
I In May 2006, the Key West
City Commission passed the
owner's plan to tear down the
existing motel and build a new
one. On April 1, the city

Truman Annex planning a gate


By KYLE TEAL
kteal@keynoter.com


The Truman Annex Master
Property Owners Association in
Key West has submitted plans to
put up a gate at the Southard
Street entrance of the Truman
Waterfront to the city.
"We've applied to the city for
those," TAMPOA attorney Bill
Anderson said. "And the
[Historical Architectural Review
Commission] has approved
them. We're waiting for permits
to be issued."
The Key West City
Commission in March passed an
agreement with the homeowners
association of the upscale neigh-
borhood that allows public
access to the entrance from 6


a.m. to 10 p.m. but restricts entry
to residents, residents' visitors,
city employees and U.S. Navy
personnel throughout the night.
Visitors of future city devel-
opments at the waterfront will be
permitted entry to the street, City
Attorney Shawn Smith has said.
The agreement allows a gate
at the entrance that could close
from 10 p.m. to 6 a.m.
Many people opposed the
agreement, saying it will close
part of the island from the rest of
its residents.
City Commissioner Clayton
Lopez represented the senti-
ments of many of his con-
stituents in voting against the
settlement. His district includes
the neighboring Bahama Village.
Lopez wasn't surprised at the
new proposal to construct a gate.
"I [don't] believe their arro-
gance," Lopez said. "And that's
what I tried to make the city see


that night they passed the agree-
ment."
Clayton also said the timing
is bad, with 33 acres of city land
that will soon be developed into
a cultural Bahama Village neigh-
borhood and an assisted-living
facility.
TAMPOA hired local archi-
tect Bert Bender to draw up
plans for a gate in 2005, when
TAMPOA originally proposed
the construction. Those are the
same plans that have been resub-
mitted.
"The gates pretty much match
what the historic military Navy
Truman Annex gates were," he
said. "A trained professional will
look at it and know it's new, and
to other people it will look like
the old style."
Bender said that under city
regulations, the gates can't
exceed 6 feet in height.
TAMPOA's proposal does, so a
variance from the city is neces-
sary.

Put out food for
annual postal drive

Last year, mail carriers
throughout Monroe County col-
lected more than 13.5 tons of
food during the U.S. Postal
Service's annual Stamp Out
Hunger drive.
The goal for this year's effort
Saturday is to increase donations
of nonperishable food to help
meet growing needs, according to
the drive organizer.
Bob Killen has been. coordi-
nating the postal carriers through-
out Monroe the past 15 years. He
said food collected in each com-
munity "stays in the community"
so postal patrons who leave out
canned goods and other nonper-
ishable food for their carriers to
pick up Saturday will know it's
helping feed those in their own
community.


Participating food banks that
will receive donations are St.
Mary's Soup Kitchen, Glad
Tidings Church, St. James the
Baptist Church, Florida Keys
Outreach Coalition, Loaves and
Fishes food bank, Keys Area
Interdenominational Resources
(K.A.I.R), Big Pine Methodist
Church, the Domestic Abuse
Shelter, Salvation Army, among
others.
Killen requested postal
patrons who plan to set out food
for pickup Saturday to avoid
glass bottles, which can break.
He said many food products are
now being packaged in plastic
bottles and canned goods or
bagged non-perishable items are
always welcome.
And there's always a need for
baby food, he said.
Donors can place the food in
brown paper sacks or even just
stack cans near the mailbox.

on-behalf of nearly 100 Monroe
County corrections officers after
six months of unsuccessful nego-
tiations.
The union and Sheriff's Office
began contract talks in
November, two months after
PERC certified Local 769 as the
unit's bargaining representative.
The two sides have been unable
to reachan agreement.
Roth says union representa-
tives abruptly walked out of
negotiations Thursday morning
saying they planned to declare
the impasse.
The union says it's because of
unreasonable staffing changes
and cuts. Sheriff Rick Roth says
it's the union that's being unrea-
sonable.
"These corrections officers
work in an environment that is
inherently dangerous," Mike
Scott, president of Local 769,
said in a prepared statement. "But
instead of taking steps to improve
safety in the facility, the Sheriff's
[Office] is making ill-advised
demands that could compromise
the precautions already in place."
He said that includes cutting
staffing in the most dangerous
block of the Monroe County
Detention Center on Stock
Island, Alpha Unit, which houses
violent offenders.
Roth counters he's done no
cutting and that the union wants
the staff there increased.
"What they're asking is to


increase it to two" deputies on
duty there at any given time," he
said. "They wanted a guaranteed
second officer. There are other
options" such as adding fencing to
separate inmates when, for exam-
ple, they're making phone calls.
He said he's looking at "other
non-salaried areas to increase
safety."
The union says the Sheriff's
Office has also demanded that a
position in the jail control center
jail be manned by "cheaper, less-
experienced civilian personnel
rather than a certified corrections
officer."
Roth says that's true, but that
the person holding the position
"just watches cameras and opens
and closes doors.... We want to
put that certified officer on the
floor."
The union also wants 3 per-
cent across-the-board raises
retroactive to last Oct. 1, among
other things.
"We have made multiple pro-
posals designed to offset any
costs associated with keeping
these positions as they stand, but
the committee refuses to even
consider them," Scott said.
"Ensuring the safety of these
workers is our primary concern.
Frankly, it's disconcerting that
the Sheriff's [Office] doesn't
share our concern."
The negotiations now go to a
state Public Employees Relation
Commission mediator. If that
doesn't work, they go to a hear-
ing officer.

State ditches tax holidays


No more breaks
on hurricane,
school supplies
Keynoter Staff

Those who became comfort-
able with not paying taxes on
school- and hurricane-related
items the past several years now
might be feeling uncomfortable.
That's because in the 2008
legislative session that ended


Friday, Florida lawmakers said
no to the annual tax breaks as
they passed a $66 billion budget
for 2008-09 - $5 billion less
than the current budget.
The slumping economy and
flat housing market simply did-
n't allow the state to pass the so-
called sales-tax holidays for the
coming year because it would
mean tens of millions of dollars
in lost state revenue.
Initially, lawmakers agreed to


ditch the sales-tax holiday for
purchases of hurricane prepara-
tion supplies and to shorten the
tax holiday on back-to-school
items. But even that proposal
failed to make it through the
Senate.
For nearly a decade, two
weeks were set aside in August
for the school-supply tax holi-
day. During that period no sales
tax or local-option taxes, also
known as discretionary sales

Kramer said.
The National Retail
Federation issued a survey in
February predicting the checks
would pump about $43 billion
into the economy. But gas prices
have increased in recent months,
so shoppers might now be more
likely to spend more on necessi-
ties than luxuries.
In South Florida, consumers
will likely pay off debt or save
and, at the same time, splurge a
little, said Miami-based retail
consultant Cynthia Cohen.
"Now I might buy the rib-eye

supermarkets would be among
the retailers to notice a boost.

Joint ownership lets you wing it

Aircraft clubs grow in popularity


By PAMELA J. SUAREZ
Keynoter Contributor

Cliff Rydel of Key Colony
Beach had always dreamed of
owning an airplane but because
of the expense, he thought he
might never get the chance.
But these days, Rydel is flying
high in his very own plane,
thanks to a little help from some
like-minded neighbors.
Rydel is part of a group of
Middle Keys residents who have
formed a new club that offers a
jet-setting lifestyle without a sky-
high price tag, courtesy of a
shared aircraft ownership
arrangement - and he says it's
the only way to fly.
"This is absolutely the cheap-
est way to own an airplane,"
Rydel said. "We could not afford
to fly otherwise."
Rydel said each member of the
MarathonVacation.com Flying
Club pays a one-time fee of
$15,000 to become an equal part-
ner in the corporation, which
owns three planes. Each then pays
an hourly fee for time spent in the
air, plus fuel costs, and a $95
monthly fee if he or she flies less
than a minimum number of hours.
Hourly flight fees range from
$20 to $45, depending upon
which plane the pilot flies, a two-


seat Cessna 150, a four-seat
Cessna 172 or a Cessna 210 high
-performance six-seater, all of
which are kept at the Marathon
Jet Center at Florida Keys
Marathon Airport and maintained
by Middle Keys Aircraft Service.
Fees pay for monthly tie-down
charges, maintenance, insurance,
inspections and other costs asso-
ciated with keeping the planes.
"With the expenses spread out
among a group of people, it's
affordable for everybody," Rydel
said.
The club has about 12 mem-
bers. Some are experienced pilots
while others have joined because
they want to learn to fly and need
a plane in which to do it.
Jo Ann Cook-Kuipers, presi-
dent and general manager of the
Flying Club, said she will use her
membership to earn her pilot's
license and enhance her real
estate business.
"I don't want to buy a plane
because of the expense, and you
can't rent one in Marathon,"
Cook-Kuipers said. "So the
Flying Club is really the best way
for me to get my license. I'll be
able to pick up my real estate
clients and show properties from
land, sea or air."
Leslie Coles, customer service
manager at the Marathon Jet


By pooling their resources, these aviation enthusiasts can get -
airtime without having to buy an entire airplane and pay the
maintenance costs alone.


Center, said that since the number
of people inquiring about shared
aircraft ownership has increased
sharply within the last six
months, the Flying Club-is clear-
ly filling a niche.
"In the past, people might ask
about it once every six or eight
months," Coles said. "But lately
I'm getting two or three calls per


week. A lot of people want to fly
and they don't have the finances
to maintain an aircraft by them-
selves. If you're a private pilot in
Marathon, that club would be the
way to go."
Coles said she is seeing more

Two agencies


-partner up


Effort's to
raise issue
of sex crimes
The Monroe County Health
Department and the Monroe
County Domestic Abuse Shelter
have just partnered to raise public
awareness of counseling services
that are available to victims of
sexual assault in the Keys.
According to the Florida
Department of Law Enforcement,




0- 0n-
F kM ilesco


more than 11,200 forcible sexual
offenses - rape, sodomy and
fondling - were reported
statewide in 2007, of which 34
were reported in Monroe County.
The Florida Council Against
Sexual Violence has declared
rape the most under-reported
crime in America. To bring more
attention to the issue, the Florida
Department of Health developed
the "Rape. Talk About It. Prevent
It." campaign.
Clear Channel Radio and
Monroe County government
Channel 76 are airing public serv-
ice announcements promoting the
campaign throughout the Keys in
May. The announcements can
also be heard and seen on the
Web. Visit www.doh.state.fl
.us/family/svpp and click on
"Sexual Violence Prevention
Materials."
A toll-free statewide hotline
has been established that victims
can call to talk about their experi-
ences and get help locating the


nearest rape crisis centers in their
communities. The hotline is (888)
956-7273.
Locally, the Domestic Abuse
Shelter runs a 24-hour hotline for
anyone seeking help in the Keys.
The shelter's hotline 743-4440.
The shelter is a certified crisis


center that serves victims of
domestic violence and sexual
assault, and operates emergency
shelters and outreach offices
year-round in Key Largo,
Tavernier, Marathon and Key
West.
The shelter also provides indi-


vidual and group counseling,
court advocacy and injunctions
for protection assistance, infor-
mation and referral, community
education and professional train-
ing and victim crime compensa-
tion assistance.
Shelter services are free.

Conchs surging

Playoff run
for Key West
is continuing
By DICK WAGNER
Keynoter Contributor


In front of what seemed like
the whole town, the surging Key
West High School baseball team
rallied to defeat Cardinal
Gibbons, 10-6, Friday night in a
4A regional semifinal game at a
frenzied Rex Weech Field.
Fans - about 1,500 -
packed the grandstands, lined the
outfield fences and even spilled
into the football bleachers to
watch the Conchs win a regional
game for the first time in three
years.
But things did not look prom-
ising when Gibbons broke a
scoreless tie with five runs in the
third inning against Raiko
Alfonso, the flashy shortstop who

Dozens turn out


for grid practice


Hurricanes
hope to turn
around game
By KEVIN WADLOW
Senior Staff Writer
kwadlow@keynoter.com


Nearly four dozen athletes
turned out for Monday's open-
ing of spring football practice
at Coral Shores High School.
The Hurricanes, coming off
a three-win season, plan to
emphasize technique and the
playbook during 15 practice
sessions, head coach Todd
Gideon said.
With all three top quarter-
backs hurting, Coral Shores (3-
7 last year) does not have a
spring game or scrimmage on
the May schedule.
"We had a game lined up
but it was canceled," Gideon


said. "It probably worked out
for the best since all our quar-
terbacks are limping."
"Now we can really focus
on getting strong, building
team unity and working on
technique," Gideon said.
"We're putting in a new
offense and tweaking our
defense, so the spring will give
us time to make sure we've got
a sound foundation going into
the fall."
Veteran starter Chris Rini is
expected to be sidelined this
spring while being treated for a
nagging knee injury. Top back-
up T.J. Sabalka recently suf-
fered a broken bone in his foot.
Even emergency quarterback
Ryan Biondoletti has been
slowed by a hamstring injury.
The turnout Monday includ-

ed veterans and players the
coaches have not seen before.
"On the first day, it's hard
to see what kind of skills the
new guys have," Gideon said.
"Right now, we're just trying
to get a feel for how they are
on their feet.
"So far, it looks very posi-
tive. We have a lot of quick
guys with a lot of enthusiasm."
SPractices are open to
incoming freshmen, so more
players may turn out over the
course of spring practice.
"We're trying to get a big
group of guys and keep them
around," Gideon said. "A big
goal going into the fall is to
have a good junior varsity pro-
gram."
Hurricane coaches expect a
core group of about 20 players
from 2007 to lead the program.
Rini and Biondoletti will
return at quarterback and
receiver, respectively, but the
Canes must tap new running
backs.
Defense is expected to be a
strength, with the linebacking
corps and defensive tackles all
eligible for the 2008 season.

When it

the Don't Panic team of Capt.
Steve Swanberg and "Lucky"
John Kelley of Cudjoe Key,
Lance Stehman of Summerland
Key, Vernon Norris of Little
Torch, and John Sipes and Aaron
Neurath of Big Pine Key came
out on top - and took home
$12,000 to split among team
members.
Saturday's weigh-in found
them registering a 30.6-pound
bull and 26-pound cow, which
held the lead until the scale
closed at 6 p.m. Sunday.
"We had a heartbreaker where
a 40-pound-plus bull with a very
large cow swam by on Sunday.
We hooked up the bull but he
broke us off and we lost both of
\ them. It killed us," Stehman says.
"We just weren't sure that our
first day's catch would hold until
Sunday.",


Coming in second with a two-
fish catch weighing 50.6-pounds
was the Main Attraction team
featuring Capt. Marty Lewis and
mate Jaime Platt out of Key
Colony Beach. They won the
largest-fish trophy with a 36.4-
pound bull weighed Saturday but
were unable to find a cow the
final day that would help ,them
surpass team Don't Panic.
The architects of the tourna-
ment were Jack Carlson and Biff
Goss from Big Time Bait &
Tackle and Brian Hurley from
ReelPro. With the addition of the
Singh Co. as the title sponsor
(Singh's Boat House is home of
the awards ceremony), the Bull &
Cow has made a mark on the
Keys.
"This is a Keyswide tourna-
ment. Last year, teams from
Marathon, Islamorada and Key
West won the top three spots.
This year we attracted anglers
from Miami, New Smyrna Beach
and as far away as North
Carolina," Goss says. Carlson
adds, "It was a perfect scenario to
partner with Singh and feel like
we have a new home at the Boat
House for years to come."
Most teams competing over
the two days found plenty of dol-
phin, but most were small or what
are called peanuts and schoolies.

Tarpon are now thick through-

their attitude, too.
Having the right bait has been
the key and with the availability
of mullet and pinfish now, you

problems. The catches the past

Billy Bait a sure shot


I-VARRO / From 27

ones. Big dolphin from 12 to 25
miles out have been reported,
with 40-pounders caught daily by
several anglers. Now is the time
for the real slammers.
..Jf you don't want to go out
that far, look along the edge of
the reef out, say, a couple of
miles.
For those working well off-
shore, it doesn't make sense to


run 20 miles without having
something in the water for a fish.
This is why I preach about the
small Billy Bait mini-turbo slam-
mer. This lure is responsible for
more fish than I can tell- you
about and most were caught
while trolling more than 15 knots
while looking for fish.

Capt. Dave Navarro owns the
World Class Angler & Apparel in
Marathon and captains the char-
ter boat 'Dave's Dream.'

Marlin are an added bonus


SUTPHIN / From 26

species like wahoo and blue
marlin that like to feed on the
small dolphin.
The superstitious Capt.
Bobby Manske from the
Northern Lights team out of
Marathon had a blue marlin
make an early appearance
Saturday morning.
"As we were setting.up our
spread, I see this blue and white


Calcutta trolling lure that was in
the tournament gift bag," he
says. "I said to put some wire on
and throw it out there for a
wahoo. It was no time at all
when we see this large blue mar-
lin swimming up behind the boat
going after one of our short lines.
He had the Calcutta lure in his
mouth and the fish had no idea
he was hooked. Once we came
tight, he finally figured it out he
gave us a heck of a show.
Unfortunately, we broke him off


shortly after that."
That was only one of the mar-
lin stories. Capt. Billy Tumbull
of Duck Key, fishing in his 31-
foot Ocean Master, had what he
estimated to be a 450-pound
marlin crash a small trolled bal-
lyhoo. Three and a half hours
and one tired angler later, the
marlin was brought boatside for
a picture and a quick measure-
ment. The fish was 109 inches
from the fork to the lower jaw.
