"Fishing for science!" char- '-
ter captain John Magursky
declared moments after a yel-
lowtail snapper was reeled in.
Four fishermen gathered
around, intently peering down
the throat of the luckless snap-
per.-"Circle hook, gut hooked,"
came the report, carefully noted
on a data sheet.
The anglers caught 38 yel-
lowtail snapper Wednesday
morning while anchored off
Crocker Reef, straight out from
Plantation Key, as part of a citi-
zen research mission to com-
pare circle fishing hooks to the
more common J-hooks.

New manager
taking initiative
and leadership
By DAVID BALL
dball@keysreporter.com

About two and a half months
into the job, Islamorada Village
Manager Ken Fields seems to
have met most of the Village
Council's early expectations.
Capital projects are moving
forward, including three
groundbreaking under Fields'


watch in the past month: A
$1.16 million Lower
Matecumbe fire station, and a
$660,000 bathroom facility and
$828,000 community center at
Founders Park.
Fields has instituted bi-week-
ly workshops to streamline reg-
ular council meetings. In fact,
the Wednesday discussions
between staff and the council
have led to some of the earliest-
ever adjournments on Thursday

By RYAN McCARTHY
rmccarthy@keynoter.com

Monroe County's Health and
Human Services Advisory Board
has unveiled widespread budget
cuts coming for nonprofit organi-
zations.
The county has allocated $1.7
million, which Grants Admin-


istrator Dave Owens said is a 20
percent reduction from last year's
Funding levels.
Diana Flenard, executive
directory at the Monroe County
Association for Retarded
Citizens, said the cuts made pub-
lic Wednesday would be "devas-
tating" to her agency. MARC's
county funding is scheduled to be
cut $37,000, a 20 percent reduc-
tion. That goes with an additional

HOOKS / From I

Islamorada Charter Boat
Association. "That's actually a
big number."
Bill Kelly, a former president
of the association, organized the
trip not to collect definitive
information but to demonstrate
to fishery managers what kind of
research could be done before
new gear rules are imposed.
"One advantage of circle
hooks is supposed to be that
they're less likely to gut-hook a
fish," Kelly said. "Yet we found
that with circle hooks, the num-
ber of gut hooks to lip hooks was
nearly identical."
Of 21 yellowtail caught using
No. 8 circle hooks, 10 were
hooked in the lip. Eleven of the
snapper swallowed the circle
hook, resulting in a gut hook on
the fish's internal organs.
A fish released back to the
water stands a much better
chance of survival if it is caught
by the lip rather than gut-
hooked, fishery biologists say.
Many offshore billfish tourna-
ments now require circle hooks
to help preserve the stock of
coveted sailfish and marlin.
But both recreational and
commercial fishermen have con-
tended in federal fishery hear-
ings that circle hooks are much
less effective than J-hooks in
catching shallow-water snapper
species.
Results of Wednesday's
experiment tended to confirm
that. By the'anglers' reckoning,
about 10 percent of fish on the
line with a J-hook escaped
against more than 20 percent
with the circle hook.
Sunday, a new rule for state
and federal Gulf of Mexico
waters requires all fishermen to
use circle hooks to catch snapper
and group on natural bait.
The federal South Atlantic
Fishery Management Council
will consider an identical gear
rule for the ocean at its June 12
meeting in Orlando.
Kelly will be there to present
the results of his group's infor-
mal research to the council.
"It's very important for coun-
cil members to get this kind of
first-hand, practical information
from knowledgeable fisher-
men," said council member
Tony larocci, a Marathon com-
mercial fisherman.
"We know what the scientists

Capt. Charlie Scoble of Islamorada points out how a circle
hook caught a yellowtail snapper by the lip, which would
increase a released fish's survival chances.


say but it's also important to
hear what guys on the water
every day have to say," larocci
said. "I'm personally grateful
someone was willing to make
this kind of effort."


The anglers
caught 38
yellowtail
snapper
Wednesday
morning while
anchored off
Crocker Reef.


Capt. Charlie Scoble
anchored Al McLeod's private
boat Yo-Ho-Ho in a popular yel-
lowtail spot in 90-foot depths off
Crocker.
Anglers used matching rods
and reels, all rigged with 12-
pound test line and 15-pound


fluorocarbon leader. Hooks were
baited with peeled shrimp or
glass minnows.
Of two rods. being fished at a
time, one was rigged with a cir-
cle hook and the other with a No.
4 J-hook, comparable to a No. 6
or 8 circle hook.
The results for circle hooks:
Of 21 fish caught, 11 were gut-
hooked; 10 were lip-hooked.
For J-hooks: Of 17 fish
caught, nine were gut-hooked;
eight were lip hooked.
Magursky and Kelly agreed
the most compelling statistic
was the number of fish that
escaped a circle hook (six) com-
pared with the J-hook (two).
"Pulled hooks was the
biggest factor," Kelly said.
"Both types of hooks were hook-
ing up fairly well, but the circle
hooks had a big number of
pulled hooks from fish that were
solidly on the line."
Scoble said, "The J-hook
gives you a more direct connec-
tion. We lost a lot of fish that we
worked for with the circle'
hook."

Cuts slash services


SERVICES / From I

$180,000 cut by the state.
"We're back to institutional
care because that's all we can
afford with these cuts," Flenard
said. "All the progress made in
the last 25 years is going away."
Flenard. said a reduction in
services and staff could mean'
MARC will no longer be able to
accommodate all of the 100
developmentally disabled people
it serves in Monroe County.
"We won't be able to get them
jobs, help them learn skills; we
won't be able to support them
getting their own apartment and
living in the community or take
them out to do activities," she
said. "All that social learning to
make them productive members
of society will be taken away."
Florida - Keys Children's
Shelter Executive Director Kathy
Tuell said her combined cuts thus
far are $102,000, $37,000 of
which is from the county.
"It's hard to make cuts when
you don't know where to start;
$102,000 is a major hit for us. It
could potentially be staff, which
effects services," Tuell said.
Owens said none of the cuts


become official before the
Monroe County Commission
adopts its budget in September,
though they will be heard at a
budget meeting in July.
Among the organizations
scheduled to see significant cuts:
the Care Center for Mental Health
($50,000), Guidance Clinic of the
Middle Keys ($50,000), Wesley
House ($32,828), American Red
Cross ($23,381) and the Florida
Keys Outreach Coalition
($17,302), which advocates for
the homeless.
The American Red Cross cut
is an 82.38 percent reduction
from its fiscal year 2008 alloca-
tion of $28,381. It is scheduled to
receive $5,000 in 2009.
Wesley House Family
Services Executive Director
Doug Blomberg said a number of
agencies will pool together to
address the county.
"We put together a document
asking the various agencies
affected to make a statement as to
the $500,000-plus they took out
- what that meant in staff reduc-
tions, direct services and if any of
those funds that were cut will
mean an inability to meet match
funds from state and federal pro-
grams," Blomberg said.

Keys Opinion


TDC storm plans

set a good model

As we get settled into the hurricane-season state of mind with
the 2008 season starting Sunday, we start to think - or already
should have thought - about preparation.
That includes the bottled water, canned food, shutters, emer-
gency family and business plans and everything else that goes
with the six-month season.
There's one area many of us hardly ever think about,'though,
and that's the tourism business. Sure, all of those affected by
cancelled rooms and empty restaurants when the skies darken
know the deal, but sometimes the general public forgets the
Monroe County Tourist Development Council's role when
emergencies take hold.
In the Keys, the tourism industry needs to rebound as quick-
ly as it can when disaster either threatens or strikes. But it's also
good business to be proactive - when a storm develops, let-
ting those who are making plans to come here or are already
here know what's going on.
That's what the TDC does. It's the only visitors bureau we
know of that doesn't just spin good stories where there are bad,
but goes out of its way to ensure visitors are safe.
For example, the TDC has a formal communications pro-
gram with local emergency management officials to provide
crucial information to help visitors safely exit the Florida Keys
in the event a hurricane threatens the region.
If a visitor evacuation order is necessary, officials strive to
issue it early in the morning to provide ample time to make
alternative travel arrangements.
Then all the lodgings are alerted by either via high-priority e-
mails or what's called a fax blast. And the Lodging Association
of the Florida Keys and Key West wants its members to pro-
vide refunds of unused nights as soon as local officials issue a
visitor evacuation order. The majority of Keys properties sub-
scribe to that.
Max Mayfield, the respected National Hurricane Center
director from 2002 to 2007, said at a past Keys hurricane
awareness conference: "You've got to be proactive and it's
really unusual to have a tourist development council like this
be that proactive. It's one of the best practices. I use this as an
example everywhere I go."
That's some high praise. And Mayfield so endorsed the pro-
gram that he asked Andy Newman, who handles Keys PR for
the TDC, to go to the 2007 meeting of the World
Meteorological Organization's -Iurricane Committee in
Curacao to tell them how it works.
The proactive program started in 1998 but ramped up follow-
ing the busy 2004 hurricane season. We think it's good busi-
ness, and just one more tool as we went the summer of storms.

Waterfront needs to be viable for all


EDITOR:
I applaud the Monroe County Planning
Commission and staff's recommendation to
extend the moratorium on working-waterfront
redevelopment until plans can be finalized to
incentivize owners of property providing com-
mercial and public access to the waterfront to.
participate in a process of preservation.
We must remember that this is not just about
commercial fishing and Stock Island but also
about public access and all the Florida Keys. I
look forward to the day when we place as much
importance on calculating the economic value of
boats in slips as we do heads in beds. Analytical
formulas used by national experts in the field
would indicate that the Keys can ill afford to
allow further degradation of the marine industry.
Whether one is passionate about this cause or
not, it is hard to deny that diversity is the key to
the maintenance of a strong economic base.
As controversial as this issue has been, we
actually agree on much more than we disagree.
For example, I am in total accord with those
who have said the marine trade must have tax
relief (which can only be granted by the state) if-
it is to continue as a viable entity. I would
encourage the taxpayers of this county to vote in
favor of the amendment on the ballot in
November to grant local governments the ability


to remove the burden of waterfront marine-relat-
ed businesses being taxed disproportionately at
the maximum rate allowed.
However, tax relief can only be part of what
must be a multi-faceted approach involving the
state, county and the municipalities. All have a
responsibility to recognize that a system that
results in a highest and best value being placed
on resorts, condominiums and like development
is one that creates diminishing returns for the
owners of marine businesses.
I concur with the opponents of strong preser-
vation measures that absent changes that place
equivalent value on the maintenance of a strong
marine industry serving both public and com-
mercial enterprise. No one should be able to
find fault with those who seek to convert their
property or make a sale resulting in a conver-
sion. On all fronts, the time to enact construc-
tive preservation measures is running out.
It would seem timely to call attention to the
fact that neither we, as taxpayers, nor the county
commissioners have yet to hear the substance of
the Marine Management Strategic Plan (cost to-
taxpayers: $300,000) that was created to provide
information for intelligent and informed deci-
sion making on this important matter.

All should have a say in choosing next sheriff


EDITOR:
I retired from the Monroe County Sheriff's
Office in 2004 after serving the citizens of
Monroe County for 22 years. Throughout my
career I supported candidates for several politi-
cal offices including sheriff, not because they
could do something for me but because of what
they could for my community. That was my right
as a citizen. I also liveU, shopped and sent my
kids to school in the Keys and was as concerned
about the issues as any other resident.
I am offended by an ad in your newspaper
that infers that by expressing my right to support
a political campaign by making a contribution
that I purchased preference or fear retribution for
not contributing. That statement is far from the
truth. The employees, families, friends and
neighbors all vote to select the next sheriff, and
we all want the person who will keep us as safe
as possible.

to the issues and personalities involved with
electing our next sheriff, it is natural that we be
allowed to express our preference. Who would
know better? Friends and neighbors frequently
depend on Sheriff's Office employees for advice
in selecting our sheriff. It is a right and an impor-
tant part of our democracy that we be permitted
to participate.
I can assure all the candidates for sheriff that
the Sheriff's Office employees are professional,
want only the best for their community and will
work with whomever the public chooses. But no
one should try to take away our right to privately
participate in the democratic process by making
false claims and accusations.

Keys doctor among the best


EDITOR:
Those who live in Marathon are
very lucky to have Dr. Stephen Smith
available to you. He is a local doctor
with one of the highest surgeon rat-
ings doctors can receive.
Many years ago he operated on me
for a double hernia for a construction
workman's compensation problem.
My Miami workman's comp attorney
asked me why I would allow a Keys
doctor to operate on me in a Keys
hospital.-When I gave him Dr. Smith's
card, he was very impressed and
asked me what such a qualified doctor
was doing in the keys. Didn't know,
didn't care. He is a great doctor.
A few years later I thought I had


the flu bad and stopped by his
Tavernier office late on a Tuesday
afternoon. He is in Tavernier every
Tuesday. It turned out I had a ruptured
appendix and he operated on me that
night and basically saved my life.
Those of you who don't like my
letters to the editor can blame Dr.
Smith. He has cut me open and
repaired me several times since. I just
want to take this time to thank Steven
Smith and his hard-working nurses
and office staff. He's a busy man and
may not appreciate extra business, but
for my life and the problems I've had,
he's the man.

The music plays thanks to everyone


EDITOR:
On behalf of the Marathon Band
Boosters and the band students in
Marathon public schools, I would like
to thank the community for its sup-
port during the 2007-08 school year.
Thank you to the individuals and
business who contributed their time,
talent and financial support to our
school musicians. Throughout the
year, funds raised from sponsorships,
car washes, spaghetti dinner, M&M
sales and numerous concessions have
enabled us to purchase a trumpet for
the Switlik Band; send students to
perform in state and district honor
bands, the Naples Jazz Festival,
marching band competition and solo
and ensemble competition; repair-
damaged instruments; purchase con-
cert attire for the middle school and
high school bands.


Our recent Marathon Band Days,
masterminded by music patron Bud
Kreh, was a great success. We hope
it raised awareness of the band pro-
gram being rebuilt under the direc-
tion of Stephen Whitfield. Thank you
to the numerous groups and individ-
uals worked so hard to make Band
Days a reality.
In particular, I would like to rec-
ognize Kay Gradick, Arlene Keeney
and Lourdes Dick for putting the his-
torical display together and Island
Harmony, the Keys Breeze, Boogie
Trio members Marilyn Tempest and
Adrianna Zito and John Bartus for
their benefit performances; the
Marathon Rotary for the band picnic;
and the Marathon Jaycees for the
coin toss.

Kids get a scientific earful


EDITOR:
On a recent Friday, Stanley
Switlik Elementary School and
Switlik's Parent Teacher
Organization sponsored an event that
made us realize, again, that the
Marathon area is a wonderful place
to live.
We had our first K.E.Y.S. Event
Expo (Keys Expo for Young
Scientists). We wanted to bring an
awareness and appreciation for the
fascinating environment that we
have right here in our own backyard.
We invited agencies and organiza-
tions from throughout the Keys to
come and set up an interactive center
for a few hours and teach the kids
about their corer of the Keys envi-
ronment. We immediately had 16
eager participants.
Our kids were like sponges, soak-
ing up all the information being pre-
sented. In one morning, these fantas-
tic presenters in 16 centers were able


to touch more than 600 students
from prekindergarten to sixth grade.
Thank you from the bottom of
our hearts to the Marathon Parks and
Recreation Department, Florida Fish
and Wildlife Conservation
Commission, Crane Point
Hammock, state Department of
Environmental Protection, U.S.
Coast Guard, Dolphin Research
Center, Marathon Wild Bird Center,
National Oceanic and Atmospheric

We thank them for their enormous
effort with our children. We look for-
ward to another event next year.

We've got many reasons


to celebrate our students


Today at 11:30 a.m., the stage at
Marathon High School will be filled with
the proud faces of 45 high school seniors
drawn from throughout the Keys.
These young men and women com-
prise the eighth graduating class for Take
Stock in Children here in Monroe
County.
Joining these excited graduates will be
their families, friends, donors who help
fund Take Stock scholarships and adult
mentors who have been - in many
cases - lifelines for these young men
and women.
Take Stock is a public-private partner-
ship that has demonstrated the truth of
the old adage that help begins at home.
Now operating statewide,
Take Stock has provided men-
toring help and scholarships
for more than 13,500 students
in Florida.
Here in the Keys, the
Monroe County Education
Foundation has taken up the
challenge to provide this help-
ing hand to all Keys students
who qualify.
"All qualified students from
the seventh to 12th grade who
want to go to college already
have their scholarships," Wayne I
according to program coordi- Keynoter
nator Jim Hall. "No other
county can make that claim."
That's a powerful commitment to help
the youth of this community who are
most at risk.
To participate, students sign up in sev-
enth grade and with their parents or
guardian commit to good behavior, good
grades and staying drug free. They attend
weekly meetings with mentors, who help
with schoolwork and much, much more.
John Padget, an Education Foundation
board member, says"'our mission is to
break the cycle of poverty through edu-
cation - one child at a time."
Lynn Kaufelt, fundraising chairwoman,
reports the Education Foundation raised
more than $370,000 for the next round of
scholarships - which is an awesome
accomplishment.
Among the sponsors who help each
year: The Edward Knight Foundation,
The Padget Fund, the Monroe County
Sheriff's Office, the Rodel Foundation,
Keys Rotary clubs and the Keys
Children's Foundation.
The 45 seniors who will be honored
today join 179 earlier graduates from the
Take Stock program.
If you want to learn more about Take
Stock, donate to the cause or become a
mentor, call Hall at 293-1546, or come to
Marathon High School today and see for


yourself what a community can do when
it works together.



Keeping with the theme of accolades
and applause, School District Director of
Student Services Lesley Messier has
been selected from among 1,700 appli-
cants to attend the Japan Fulbright
Memorial Fund Teacher Program in
Tokyo.
Messier, who was principal at Stanley
Switlik Elementary School in Marathon
before moving to her administrative post
with exceptional-student education, will
travel to Japan in October, all expenses
paid.
S She'll join educators from
all 50 states and the District
of Columbia in the program,
Which was started by the
Japanese government in 1997
to promote greater intercultur-
Sal understanding between the
two nations.
, The U.S. began the
Fulbright Program in 1946,
which has enabled more than
6,000 Japanese students to
study in the U.S. on Fulbright
larkham fellowships for graduate edu-
Publisher cation and research.


Finally, congratulations to our third-
graders, who managed to post some
impressive improvements in reading and
math in the Florida Comprehensive
Achievement Test.
As we reported in Wednesday's
Keynoter, more than 80 percent of Keys
third-graders passed the FCAT, improv-
ing districtwide reading scores by six
percentage points over last year.
That's double the statewide improve-
ment in reading.
On math tests, students at Switlik real-
ly impressed with an 11 point gain year
over year. The third-graders at Switlik
had 94 percent passing - highest
achievement level of any school in the
Keys - even though the bar keeps mov-
ing higher each year.
Both Montessori.Charter School and
Sigsbee Elementary third-graders were
close behind with 10-point gains in this
year's math tests.
Over a five-year period, three Keys
schools have seen math proficiency lev-
els increase by 20 points or more: Gerald
Adams Elementary (22-point increase),
Switlik (21-point increase) and
Plantation Key School (20-point
increase).

Marine-firm owners face motor-theft charges


.Deputies say
the two cases
not connected
By KEVIN WADLOW
Senior Staff Writer
kwadlow@keynoter.com

Owners of two Marathon
marine-service companies were
arrested this week on theft
charges stemming from posses-
sion of a stolen boat engine or
parts.
The arrests came five days
apart but there's no apparent con-
nection.
John Strama, 26, owner of


Strama Marine Services, was
taken into custody Tuesday after
Monroe County Sheriff's Office
deputies spotted him working on
the motor of towed boat near mile
marker 98.6 on Key Largo, the
agency says.
Deputies had information the
115-horsepower engine may be
stolen. They located a hidden seri-
al number and confirmed it's been
missing since stolen from Collier
County in December 2004.
"I knew I shouldn't have
bought that engine from those
Cubans," Strama blurted out,
according to Detective Sgt. David
Carey's report.


At 10 p.m. May 22, John
Liddy, 40, owner of Liddy's
Mobile Marine Service, was
arrested after being found in the
yard of Keys Boat Works on 39th
Street in Marathon.
A lower unit . had been
removed from an engine at the
boatyard and placed in Liddy's
work van. He claimed to be
working at the direction of the
owner, but deputies said both the
owner and a local representative
denied ever contacting Liddy.
Liddy's van and tools were
seized for possible forfeiture.
"It is bad enough to deal with
people coming from out of town
to steal boats, motors and fishing
equipment," Sheriff Rick Roth

said. "But here we have the own-
ers of two local marine-services
companies committing these
types of crimes. Our officers did a
terrific job of catching these guys
in the act."


The arrests
came five
days apart
but there's
no apparent
connection.

Strama claimed to have paid
"two Hispanic people he does not
know" in a $2,000 transaction at
a gas station, according to
deputies. He planned to sell the
engine for a $500 profit.

Friends recall
vibrant woman
loved by all
By MARGARET MENGE
mmenge@keynoter.com

A woman jogging on a rural
road on Sugarloaf Key was
struck by a car early Thursday
morning and pronounced dead on
the scene.
Dawn Silvers, 42, was the
15th person killed on the roads
south of Florida City so far this
year.
"We know that Dawn is OK
and the rest of us are left to deal
with the pain of not having her
around," says Fran Pedersen, a
close friend.
Silvers lived on Big Pine Key
and was. a waitress at the
Butterfly Cafe in Marathon. The
assistant manager, Chris St. John,
says she quickly became part of a
close-knit staff.
"She just jumped right in and
was a part of us," he says. "She
was amazing." She was the one
server, he says, who would sit
down at tables with customers


cocaine also was lodged against
Strama.
A lower unit, which contains
an outboard's propeller assembly
and drive shaft, can sell for
$1,500 to $3,200, said Dick Beal
of Skeeter's Marine Repair on
Big Pine Key.
."I won't buy an engine unless
the seller proves his ownership to
me with a bill of sale," Beal said.
"And I'd be sure to get a bill of
sale. If somebody shows up with
five or six lower units in the back
of his truck, they're probably
stolen."
Most outboards require a spe-
cific type of lower unit, he said,
meaning a unit stolen randomly
cannot be easily resold.
Officers can immediately
impound an engine shown to be
stolen, regardless of whether the
owner knew it was stolen when
he bought it.
"You 'need to know who
you're dealing with," Beal said.


and chat away.
Silvers, according -to her
friends, was a recovering alco-
holic. She was involved with her
church, the Vineyard Christian
Fellowship on Big Pine, and
engaged to be married in
November to Roy Payne, who
heads investigations for the state
Fish and Wildlife Conservation
Commission in the Keys. "She
had everything going for her," St.
John says. "It was just coming
together."
Like a lot of people in the
Keys, Silvers worked more than
one job. She worked part-time as
a masseuse at the Pirate Wellness
Center on Summerland Key and
sometimes cleaned houses.
The Florida Highway Patrol is
still investigating the incident,
but friends say the driver of the
vehicle, Bruce Sonnenfeld of
Sugarloaf Key, was blinded by
the early-morning sun and did
not see Silvers running on the
side of the road. The accident
happened about 7 a.m. Thursday
on State Road 939A.
FHP Lt. David M. Folsom
says speed was not a factor.

Hot dog cart fears


sink ordinance


Council looks
at permitting
for vendors
By RYAN McCARTHY
rmccarthy@keynoter.com

The Marathon City Council
on Tuseday voted down an ordi-
nance that would have given any
licensed mobile food vendor the
right to park a hot dog stand in
front of a private home - some-
thing Councilman Don Vasil said
he definitely didn't want, espe-
cially in front of his own home.
"I don't think anyone's going
to pick out [Vasil's] house to go
set up a hot dog stand,"
Councilman Mike Cinque said.
"I'm a big believer in keeping it
simple and if a problem starts
there's nothing we can't address
at a meeting."
The ordinance would have
required vendors operating in the
city to hold a right-of-way per-
mit.
Monroe County issues the
permits to mobile food vendors
in the unincorporated area,
defined as "any person who
sells...candy, ice cream confec-
tion, or any food or beverage for
human consumption from any
cart.or vehicle of any kind capa-
ble of locomotion." The city ordi-
nance was meant to bring ven-
dors, who technically operate
illegally in the city, into code
compliance.
But Vasil said there would be
no point creating city legislation
if it's not necessary. "It's never
been an issue and it hasn't caused


a problem in this city. The other
thing was some of the comments
made from the public about ven-
dors at the parks or boat ramps
could create neighborhood
issues," Vasil said.
Mayor Pete Worthington said
the ordinance was not specific
enough as to where vendors
would be allowed to set up.
"That was a blanket exemp-
tion. If we identified areas on the
right-of-way where the .city
wouldn't have a problem that
would be different," Worthington
said, pointing out Marathon High
School and Stanley Switlik
Elementary School.
"It opened up the door for a lot
of issues we haven't had to
address," he said.
Councilwoman Marilyn
Tempest likened the ordinance to
one proposing dogs be allowed in
certain restaurants in the city,
which was also voted down by
council.
"They do it, so we just turn a
blind eye," she said. "It's another
instance of people wanting to be
in compliance with the law [and]
we try to bring something for-
ward so the city is allowing them
to do what they're doing."
Vice Mayor Chris Bull was a
council member when this issue
arose in the past.
"We had 14 pages worth of
code we had to put into effect to
address all the intricacies of
mobile vendor licensing. This
was a different approach, but you
could possibly open another can
of worms," Bull said.

Two arrested for
indecent exposure

The Key West Police
Department arrested two men
May 23 during an undercover
operation in Little Hamaca Park
near Key West International
Airport to catch visitors exposing
their genitals and attempting to
engage in sexual acts.
Police say they're responding
to complaints from neighbors in


the area.
According to a police report, a
man was caught May 23 after he
engaged in sexual conversation
with an undercover officer and
"exposed his genitalia, rubbing it
with his hand." That same day,
another man talked to the under-
cover officer using "sexual innu-
endo" and also started pleasuring
himself.
Both men face misdemeanor
exposure charges.

State sues Marathon Web firm


Lawsuit claims
misrepresentation
in education
By DAVID BALL
dball@keysreporter.com

The Florida Attorney
General's Office is suing a
Marathon-based Internet com-
pany for allegedly misleading
nurses seeking continuing edu-
cation credits.
Attorney General Bill
McCollum's office filed a law-
suit in Broward County circuit
court Thursday alleging that
Medceu Inc. owners Mark and


Faith Freedman violated the
Florida Deceptive and Unfair
Trade Practices Act by know-
ingly misrepresenting informa-
tion on their Website,
www.medceu.com.
The Web site lists the compa-
ny's address as 5409 Oveiseas
Highway, Suite 243, which is a
mailbox at the Marathon UPS
Store.
The Reporter made several
calls to the phone number listed
on the site and two others listed
for Mark Freedman, but all went
to the same voicemail. The mes-
sage on the voicemail doesn't
reference any name or business.


The Attorney General's
Office reportedly received
numerous complaints about the
company and its purported abil-
ity to provide nurses with
nationally accepted education
credits.
Nurses in most states are
required to complete continuing
education. Florida requires 24
hours every two years, and the
credits must be approved by the
American Nurses Credentialing
Center.
Medceu site visitors can pay
$30 to $50 to access nearly 330
online courses totaling more
than 500 credit hours. Tests are
taken online and completion
certificates can be printed out.

This is the 'suite' listed on Medceu's Web site - a post-office
box at the UPS Store in Marathon. Mark Freedman, owner of
the online company, didn't return several calls for comment
about the state's allegations against his company.


The site doesn't specifically
state that credits are approved
by the ANCC.
In the suit, McCollum con-
tends the defendants "state,
imply and infer that virtually all
states and the ANCC accept
Medceu continuing education
credits, when in fact at least 14
states and the ANCC do not
approve or accept Medceu cred-
its. Only approximately 10
states appear to accept Medceu
credits. At least one of those
states accepts Medceu credits
based on the misrepresentations
of Medceu that it is accepted by
the ANCC."
In fact, the ANCC Web site
contains a "MedCEU Alert" dis-
claimer that says the company is
"neither accredited by ANCC
nor approved through any of the
ANCC approvers."
Michael Tomak, director of
nursing and allied health at
Florida Keys . Community
College, said he hadn't heard of
Medceu, but unaccredited con-
tinuing education providers are


a problem in the nursing field.
"Unless they [the ANCC]
approve it, they don't accept it.
Most of us don't know that,"
Tomak said. "Nurses need to
check these companies out and
make sure they are an assigned
provider from whatever state
board of nursing you're getting
credits for. Check for that
provider number."
The suit further claims
Medceu fraudulently used cus-
tomers' credit-card numbers to
make unauthorized charges.
Medceu is also listed as an
"inactive" corporation with the
Florida Department of State but
is still active, which is a viola-
tion of state law.
The attorney general is seek-
ing a court order to stop Medceu
from performing continuing
education services, payment of
damages to affected consumers,
plus attorney and court fees and
$10,000 in civil penalties for
each violation of the Deceptive
and Unfair Trade Practices Act.

Co-op: Move sewer


plant to back lot


It if occurs,
marina would
be affected
By RYAN McCARTHY
rmccarthy@keynoter.com


The Florida Keys Electric
Cooperative has apparently
backed away at the llth hour
from plans to allow the city of
Marathon to build a wastewater
treatment plant on a piece of co-
op property near mile marker 49.
Community Services Director
Susie Thomas informed the City
Council Tuesday she was told in
a meeting with the co-op's staff
that 15-month-old plans to house
the service Area 3 plant on the
west side of the utility's lot
"were pretty much ... not going
to be a possibility anymore."
"We have to know where the
plant is going to be to go out to
bid," Thomas said.
Council members Marilyn
Tempest and Mike Cinque were
in favor of moving forward with
a Plan B to build the plant on a
city-owned lot in front of the
Guidance Clinic of the Middle
Keys but the council voted 3-2 to
spend two more weeks negotiat-
ing with the co-op.
"It wasn't harsh, but it was
very clear they had other things
they wanrto do with that land. I
don't know what we gain by
delaying, so I thought we should
bite the bullet and move on,"
Tempest, who attended the co-op
meeting, told the Keynoter.
The co-op said it now prefers
the plant be on the back side of
its property, with more than half
of it encroaching on the City of
Marathon Marina property and
eliminating roughly 30 parking
spaces there.
In addition, the co-op sug-
gested a lease agreement with
the city - $2,000 per month
rent, payment of sewer connec-
tion fees and monthly operations
and maintenance fees - would
remain the same and reportedly
requested a fence be built to hide
the plant and its air conditioners
be replaced if an odor problem
arose.
"I just saw such reluctance on
their part that I thought, 'Why
are we trying to force them when


we have an option that's bet-
ter?"' Tempest said.
Vice Mayor Chris Bull said
he had been out of town and
would like more time to negoti-
ate with the co-op.
"We're already a month and a
half behind; two more weeks
will not hurt the project. There's
nothing to be gained by rushing
into the decision," Bull said,
.adding odor problems are an
"old stigma."
S"I told everyone I'd be happy
to arrange a tour for anyone at
FKEC to walk the Little Venice
plant, which is similar in design,
so they can see the lack of smell
there," he said.
Cinque told the Keynoter he's

said it now

plant be on

the back

side of its

property.


afraid the co-op would foster a
"not in my back yard" mentality
around town when it comes to
building sewer plants.
"I thought the co-op was
making noise we don't need.
They basically didn't want it and
wanted us to just go away," he
said.
Mayor Pete Worthington said
the city lot in front of the
Guidance Clinic is the last space
available for potential expansion
of the Marathon Community
Park.
"The last place I want to put
another treatment plant is on
U.S. 1 on a park property. Once
that's gone, there's no more
property to do anything with,"
he said.
The council said it plans to
decide where the plant will be
built at its June 10 regular meet-
ing.

City still wants FKAA to run sewers


Utility would
operate entire
citywide system
By RYAN McCARTHY
rmccarthy@keynoter.com

While it expressed doubt it
will happen, the Marathon City
Council has directed city staff to
invite the Florida Keys
Aqueduct Authority to remain as
operator of the Little Venice
sewer treatment plant and see if
the utility might be interested in
handling Marathon's entire
sewer system.


Councilman Don Vasil
offered up the suggestion at
Tuesday's City Council meeting
despite a general feeling that the
Aqueduct Authority is not inter-
ested in managing systems it
doesn't own. The council
approved a resolution to acquire
the plant and is slated to take
ownership Oct. 1.
"I'm very hopeful that public
opinion will convince the
Aqueduct board to reconsider
their historical position on this
and do what's best for all the
people of Monroe County since
they've provided such excellent


service on those plants they are
running," Vasil said.
Other council members were
less optimistic the Aqueduct
Authority would consider the
idea, which would have to be
done by responding to a city
request for proposals from out-
side vendors to manage the sys-
tem.
"I find it difficult to believe
they would; that's one point
they've always been pretty hard
on. They're not a wastewater
[operations and maintenance]
company; they only operate their
own," Councilman Mike Cinque
said. "If they want to come back
to us with a proposal, I'm all for


Councilwoman Marilyn
Tempest said she feels the
Aqueduct Authority could likely
underbid any other vendor but
doesn't expect it to do so.
"I would love to see [the
Aqueduct Authority] keep doing
it; they've done a very good
job," she said. "But I'm not
hopeful that would be the case."
"The only way I see it hap-
pening is if they want to use it as
a training location. They have
other plants coming online; to
run one of these plants you have
to apprentice for a year before
you can run the plant," Mayor
Pete Worthington said.


Vasil has said it would be
convenient for the Aqueduct
Authority to remain the operator
because it already has an experi-
enced pool of employees.
"Procuring licensed operators
is going to be a huge issue down
the road and since the Aqueduct
is already staffing Little Venice,
why not continue to do so?"
Vasil said.
Aqueduct Authority Exec-
utive Director Jim Reynolds
couldn't be reached for comment
but in the past has said it would
be difficult for two boards - the
City Council and the Aqueduct
Authority - to both oversee
policy.

Council sets hookup window


By RYAN McCARTHY
rmccarthy@keynoter.com


The Marathon City Council
met in regular session Tuesday
and took the following actions:
+ Approved an ordinance
adopting a sewer utility service
policy, with one major amend-
ment.
The .council overrode a staff
suggestion at a May 6 meeting
and voted to give residents 360
days from the sewer system's
availability to complete lateral
hookups to their homes. Staff
recommended residents be


turned over to Code
Enforcement in 150 days should
they not hook up.
* Approved a resolution to
acquire the Little Venice waste-
water system owned by the
Florida Keys Aqueduct
Authority.
On Feb. 12, council passed a
resolution declaring its intent to
purchase the plant and directed
staff to negotiate the purchase.
Ed Castle of Weiler Engineering,
the city's wastewater engineer,
told the council the plant was


1hktaey & 7-/htey

'L�A^ &\


inspected and is in good condi-
tion.
The roughly $3.12 million
price tag will be equal to the debt
on the system. The city is slated
to take over the plant Oct. 1.
+ Approved an ordinance
allowing City Manager Clyde
Burnett to grant, at his discre-
tion, limited waivers of building
permit fees for nonprofit organi-
zations in the city.
The ordinance states nonprof-
it groups with a 501(c)3 designa-
tion through the Internal
Revenue Service can apply for
the waivers provided any one
waiver does not exceed $150.
Burnett will report to council
each month on waivers he
grants. *
+ Approved an amendment
to a, minor conditional use for
the Carlisle Group's Seagrape
affordable housing project near
mile marker 51 oceanside.
An engineering mishap
required an additional building
to be constructed at the site. It
will remain an 84-unit rental
development but the changes
required council approval.
Seagrape will offer one-, two-
and three-bedroom apartments,
with rents based on applicants
earning 60 percent of the median
income in Monroe County.
Some apartments will be offered
based on 30 percent of the medi-
an income, at half the cost.
. Approved a resolution
awarding a contract for the con-
struction of a bathhouse at the
City of Marathon Marina to
Coastland Construction Inc. for
$578,900.

Woods Corner homeowners close to moving in


Certificates
of occupancy
are issued
By DAVID BALL
dball@keysreporter.com

For the six years Jennifer
Hathaway has lived in Islamorada,
she's paid $1,000 monthly rent for
her modest trailer.
"I wouldn't say it's decent.
Basically, it was the best place I
could afford," said the 28-year-
old Hathaway, a dolphin trainer
who works at Theater of the Sea.
"Sometimes I had roommates to
make it cheaper. I just couldn't
really find much else that was
affordable."
She said the lack of affordable
- and comfortable - housing
led her. to consider leaving the
Keys, even though she loved the
area, loved her job and was
involved in the community.
But last year, Hathaway drove
past the intersection of U.S. 1 and
Woods Avenue on Plantation
Key, where a sign announced
Woods Corner, a soon-to-be-built
affordable housing project devel-
oped by the Middle Keys
Community Land Trust.
Hathaway applied to buy one
of the $130,500 factory-built
attached townhomes. She expects
to finally get the keys to her new
home at the same time as 14 other
new owners of the first housing
of its kind built in Islamorada.
Land Trust Administrator Rick


Casey said he received the final
certificates of occupancy for the
units last week, and the first clos-
ings should occur sometime this
week. He added there is still one
unit for sale.
"It's very exciting," Casey
said. "In 10 years of affordable
housing, this is nicest product
I've been associated with."
The project is nearly three
years in the making. There were
complications about sewer hook-
ups and other legal issues. But the
project sprang to life last fall
when builder BayView Homes
began construction.
"It's been very difficult getting
there. We had a lot of bridges to
cross," said Deb Gillis, chair-
woman of Islamorada's
Workforce/Affordable Housing
Citizens Advisory Committee.
"But we're there now, and I think
it's a wonderful project."
All of the three-bedroom, 2.5-
bath units were sold to residents
who were qualified based on an
extensive application, interview
process and qualifications screen-
ing that examined applicants'
occupations, involvement in the
community and, most important-
ly, income.
Eight of the 1,360-square-foot
townhouses will be sold for
$130,500 to families making no
more than $51,150 annually. The
other eight will be sold for
$190,000 to families making less
than $76,560, according to Casey.
Casey said he received about


Keys briefs


Key West student
reportedly raped

A 14-year-old Key West High
School student says a 17- to 19-
year-old Hispanic male drugged
and possibly raped her Tuesday
afternoon, according to a police
report.
The man offered the girl mar-
ijuana when he picked her up
about 12:30 p.m. at Venetia
Drive and Bertha Street, the
report says. She described him
as muscular, about 6 feet tall,
weighing 185 to 200 pounds,
with short brown hair and brown
eyes. He was a wearing a dia-
mond earring and had tattoo of
"squiggly lines" on the back of


his neck.
The victim told police the
man drove a white SUV-type
vehicle with tinted windows, a
blue interior, a black dashboard
and a tan air freshener hanging
from the rearview mirror.
The suspect offered her a
joint, which she smoked and he
didn't, the report says. He then
poured her some soda, which
she drank. From there, she
recalls waking up in a "nice"
house with her tank top off and
her jeans slightly pulled down.
The victim asked the suspect to
take her to Searstown on North
Roosevelt Boulevard to catch a
city bus, which he did.
Police were called shortly
later.


90 applications, with many dis-
missed for not meeting income
qualifications.
"We have no minimum
income level, but if you don't
earn enough to get a mortgage at
the bank you don't qualify,"
Casey said. "The other group that
fell out were people who were
over the income limit for the low-
income home, but didn't earn
enough to pay for the moderate-
income home.


"Most of the people who fell
out that way, we really intended
to help," he added. "If I were to
do it again, I'd probably have
about four price points so more
people could qualify."
While units will be individual-
ly owned, the land will remain
under Land Trust ownership.
That means buyers must accept
deed restrictions limiting value
appreciation to 3 percent a year,
which is intended to keep the


homes in the affordable-housing
market.
For Hathaway, the restrictions
were a small price to pay for a
new affordable home.
"I figured that I'll be paying
about $1,100 a month with my
mortgage, taxes and insurance,"
she said. "It's a little more than
the trailer, but that's going into
my own house, which is a really
good thing."

Experts sound storm alarm

Be prepared
for the season
starting Sunday
By MARGA�RET MENGE
mmenge@keynoter.com . ,


The annual hurricane
awareness conference in
Marathon pulled in some of
the heaviest hitters in meteor-
ology this year, with Bill
Read, director of the National
Hurricane Center, coming
down from Miami and Craig
Fugate, director of the Florida
Division of Emergency
Management, coming in from
Tallahassee.
Hurricane season starts
Sunday.
The theme of this year's
conference was "Lessons from
Katrina" and also on the roster
was Paul Trotter, meteorolo-
gist in charge with the
National Weather Service in
New Orleans. Trotter told the
30-some people in attendance
at the. conference, held
Wednesday evening at the
Marathon Government Center,
that the gulf coast lost 79.2
miles of land during Hurricane
Katrina. He toggled back and
forth between two slides, dis-
played on monitors mounted
above, showing how the chain
of barrier islands off the
Louisiana coast was dimin-
ished after the storm: they
were thinner by half in the
"after" slide. "Something has
to be done to protect the barri-
er islands," he said.
Trotter described for the
audience what it was like
those months after Katrina,
when relationships came to
matter most of all - when a
gas station owner stayed open
late so the National Weather
Service staff wouldn't have to
drive more than 50 miles to
fill up their.vehicles. "You
have to uplift people around
you," said Trotter, "because
you never know how people
can just flip."
The experts on the panel on
Wednesday urged evacuation
in the strongest language.
"You're probably going to be
right when you don't evacuate
most of the time. Until.you're
not. And then you die," Fugate
said in his opening statement.
But Mark Bartlett, general


'Ignore it,' said Bill Read, director of the National Hurricane
Center, about the long-range forecasts for the 2008 hurricane
season. Read was the keynote speaker at the hurricane
awareness conference on Wednesday.


manager of Keys Fisheries in
Marathon, said that for his
staff, evacuation was not pos-
sible. He said 30 of his 40
employees don't drive. They
ride bikes to work.
"There's no way they can
evacuate," he said. When the
storm subsided, Key Fisheries
employees came in to work.
"They didn't want to stay
home. They had five feet of
water at home," he said. "The
one thing they knew how to do
was come to work." Bartlett
said he thought the restaurant
was safe, thought they were
prepared, but that the five and
a half foot storm surge came
right through the walls.
Employees worked in the days


following to wash down every
little piece of equipment. And
Bartlett returned the favor. He
told how he bought a truck full
of mattresses and gave them
out to employees so that when
they'd worked a full day, they
could at least go home at the
end of the day and sleep on a
dry bed. "I think all of those
people who got a bed are still
with me today," he said.
The hurricane awareness
conference was -organized by
the Keynoter and sponsored
and hosted by the National
Weather Service and Monroe
County. The whole conference
will air on Comcast Cable
Channel 76, at 5 p.m. on
Monday and Friday.

Dog


sniffs out


lobster
Keynoter Staff

A snook already in the cook-
ing pot led to the arrest of two
Miami-Dade County men May
24, part of a busy Memorial Day
weekend for Florida Fish and
Wildlife Conservation
Commission officers in the Keys.
A second snook, dead but yet to
be butchered, was found nearby.
Adel A. Fontes, 33, was taken
into custody on four misde-
meanor counts including posses-
sion of snook out of season and
possessing undersized snook.
The arrest took place when
Officer Liz Riesz checked a
campsite at the Channel 5 Bridge
near Layton.
A lobster-sniffing dog named
Jasmine was brought to the scene
and located a hidden cache of 29
lobster tails - 20 of which were
undersized. Eduardo Lopez, 33,
was arrested on counts of posses-
sion of crawfish during the
closed season, possession of
undersized crawfish and posses-
sion of speared crawfish.
FWC Investigator David
Roudebush and Officer Tom Hill
also took part in the case.
It was the most significant
conservation case made in the
Keys over Memorial Day week-
end as visitors flooded the
islands to celebrate the start of
summer.
The FWC has just tallied its
numbers and says it wrote 20
fishing or resource citations and
58 warnings in Monroe County.
There were 29 boating acci-
dents in Keys waters over the
May 23-May 26 holiday, 15 of
them last Sunday. Most were
considered relatively minor but
at least two involved significant
injuries. The most serious crash
came when a boat carrying sever-
al passengers slammed into a
Florida Bay channel marker late
May 24.
Officers inspected 1332 boats
over the holiday weekend, writing
83 citations for equipment or oper-
ation and issuing 134 warnings.
Three boat operators were
charged with boating under the
influence, all in Whale Harbor
Channel near Islamorada on
May 24.

from low-income families a
chance to earn college scholar-
ships with above-average grades
and good behavior. All qualified
students from the seventh to the
12th grade who want to go to
college already have their schol-
arships in place.
Sansom, a former director of
Take Stock in Okaloosa County,
sung the program's praises
before a scheduled meeting with
Keys mentors Friday.
"I always try to speak to dif-
ferent groups around the state,"


he said. "My
vSife has been
a mentor and
it's an incred-
ible pro-
gram."
Sansom is
expected to
speak to grad-
SANSOM uates of the
program from
Monroe County high schools at
Marathon High School today at
11:30 a.m., as will Florida Keys
Community College President
Jill Landesberg-Boyle.
Sansom, a six-year legislator,
says he knows many issues vex
the Keys within education and
without. He says two issues are
tantamount to Keys residents he
spoke with: The environment
and affordable housing.
Cutting property taxes is a
necessary step to alleviate the
cost of living in the Keys, he
said. He also said he would con-
tinue to support not raising taxes
even if it cut further into the
School District budget.
"Raising taxes in an already
high tax area is the opposite
direction we should go in," he
said. "I don't live down there,
but if what I hear from the Keys
is what I think I hear, property
taxes are high and affordability is
a challenge. One way to over-
come that is to keep taxes low."
Key West state Rep. Ron
Saunders, a Democrat, said he
and Sansom work well together
on the house Budget Committee
despite party differences.
Saunders said he, too, sees
lowering local school budgets,
and thereby local taxes, as a nec-
essarily evil.
"If times remain tough, we
should look at the budget, and
say: Are there areas we can save
money?" Saunders said. "You
have to start at the top of the list
and two thirds of our budget goes
to education and health care."
Saunders said budget cuts at
the local level, though, might be
avoidable by cutting from state-
level departments like the
Department of Education.
When he becomes speaker
Sansom will replace Marco
Rubio of Miami, who was term-
limited out.

College plays name game


'Community'
would come
off the school
By KYLE TEAL
kteal@keynoter.com

With all that's changing at
Florida Keys Community
College, it seems the next step
may be finding a new name:
College of the Florida Keys.
The proposal to drop
"Community" in its title should
help attract more students, col-
lege spokeswoman Lydia
Estenoz said.
Those attending Tuesday's
Board of Trustees meeting agreed
that community colleges carry a
negative stigma and that some
students are turned away from
FKCC because they think it can't
fulfill their needs.
"The feedback on the name
change is very exciting,"
President Jill Landesberg-Boyle
told the Keynoter. "People
believe it will help in recruit-
ment.... It's a reflection of the
direction the institution is headed.
People really feel this community
needs a four year college."
If approved, FKCC would fol-
low in the footsteps of Miami-
Dade College, formerly Miami-
Dade Community College - the
largest institution of higher learn-
ing in the country. President Bush

The owner of the Guild

spoke at the commencement
there two years ago.
The board tabled the name-
change for further discussion and
moved on to pass what some fac-
ulty consider brow-raising per-
sonnel changes.
Vice President of Student
Affairs Sharon Toppino's 21-year
contract wasn't renewed and will
expire June 30. Head diving
instructor Bob Jason was also let
go.
When it came time for the
board to vote on personnel items,
board members shuffled papers
during an extended period of
silence.
Finally, Chairman Ed Scales
said he needed to address the
"elephant in the room" -
Toppino's firing.
"This has been something that
has been very troublesome for me
for some time," Scales said,
adding that he would vote against
it but that his vote shouldn't be
taken as not supporting the
administration. It's not his job to
micromanage the college, he
said.
Scales was on the down side
of a 4-1 vote to dismiss Toppino.
Toppino started at the school
in 1987 in counseling services,
where she stayed for 15 years.
She was promoted under then-
President Bill Seeker to oversee

"I have great hopes for this
institution, which has grown so
much in just a year," Landesberg-
Boyle said. "It's cemented its
place for years and years to come.
In order to do that, we have to
bring about change."
She added that long-standing
practices and those who follow
them slow the progressive
process.
"Unfortunately, there are
some people who cannot make
that change," Landesberg-Boyle
said. "The vision they saw for the
college was different."
She also called the college
"fiscally strong" in a budget year
when other institutions are suffer-
ing financially.
A state-approved 6 percent
hike in tuition rates will also
bring in about an added $1.8 mil-
lion the college hadn't anticipat-
ed.
For in-state students, the
tuition increase means one credit
hour will cost $79.49 when it
used to cost $74.81, and 12 cred-

Neary likely to be fired


Cops: Results
of investigation
show he lied
By KYLE TEAL
kteal@keynoter.com

Interim Key West Police
Chief Donie Lee recommend-
ed firing suspended Police
Officer Tom Neary Thursday
after results of an Internal
Affairs investigation revealed
numerous officers and detec-
tives confirming Neary said he
was a federal agent attempting
to unearth corruption in the
department.
Neary attorney Michael
Barnes declined comment to
the Keynoter.
The internal investigation
follows one conducted by the
FBI into officers' complaints
that Neary was telling people


he was an undercover agent.
Neary's been on paid leave for
about six months, since FBI
Special Agent Kevin White
interviewed him about his
claims.
While he was cleaning out
his police car Oct. 26, an
administrative error led police
to false information that indi-
cated he had a stolen gun.
Neary was cleared of that.
The department then
opened its internal investiga-
tion into Neary's claims he
was saying he was a federal
agent. The investigation even
involved bugging Lt. Kathleen
Ream's office to record con-
versations she had with Neary.
Neary and Barnes refused
to allow Lt. David Smith to
interview Neary for the inves-
tigation this week.
"We are refusing to let you
violate the law..." Barnes told
Smith, according to Smith's
report.
"Although it was not clear-
ly explained by [Barnes] what
the city was doing to violate
the law, it was clear that I
made several attempts to con-
duct the interview and read
Garrity to Officer Neary,"
Smith wrote.
The Garrity Law protects
officers being interviewed
from self-incrimination.
Officers interviewed said


Neary told them he was con-
ducting investigations into the
department, namely then-
Chief Bill Mauldin and Lt. Jim
Benkoczy.
Neary filed a petition for
injunctive relief Tuesday in
Monroe County Circuit Court,
stating the department took
longer than the 180 allotted
days for an investigation to
lead to disciplinary action.
In a defamation lawsuit he
filed against the city in
December, he made a laundry
list of corruption allegations
against the department and
demanded a minimum of $6
million in damages.
City Attorney Shawn Smith
-called this week's filing
"merely the other side's peti-
tion for an injunction. They
still need to appear before the
court and prove what they
allege... I believe the investi-
gation has been conducted
within the legally appropriate
time periods."
Inconsistencies have
appeared in some Neary and
Barnes claims. For example,
the pair claimed Neary was
interrogated for three hours.
Police records show that's not
possible.
Lee said Neary, a Big Pine
Key resident, has three busi-
ness days to call a predetermi-
nation hearing to refute the
findings and challenge his rec-
ommended firing.

said Detective Sgt. J.R.

have good leads on the rest."
The robberies occurred all
over the island and involved
everything from wallet and
purse snatchings to victims
being hit or punched and hav-
ing some property subse-
quently stolen.
In all, detectives arrested
John Guffy, Ryan Trimble and
Robert Johnson for robbery
and William Stokes on two
charges of robbery. One other
case was cleared when the
victim later told detectives his
alleged robbery was really an
altercation involving the pur-

Honduras unites Conch pilots


Now they're
partners in
Peru venture
By KYLE TEAL
kteal@keynoter.com

When they're not busy navi-
gating helicopters over
Peruvian jungles, Rafael Rios
and Mark Rivas enjoy catching
up with Key Westers at the
Rivera Coffee and Sandwich
Shop.
Rivas and Rios are Conchs
who've dedicated their lives to
serving their country. And when
they come back home for visits,
it's not all about the cafe con
leche.
"Both of us fish out of con-
trol. Sport fishing and boating
- anything that has to do
water," Rivas said. "If you don't
take advantage of the water out
here, you're stuck on the rock
and it starts to mess with your
head."
The U.S. Army pals didn't
even know each other until they
both served in Honduras. Rios
picked up Rivas from his flight
and detected a slight conch
accent.
"Where did you say you
from?" Rios asked.
After that, both men were
stationed in Fort Rucker, Ala.
"I spent nine years in the Air
Force as an aircraft mechanic
and then did 14 years in the
Army as an instructor pilot in
the UH-60 Black Hawk heli-
copter," Rivas said. "I've
served in Germany, Korea,
Honduras and Afghanistan in
addition to my time in the U.S."
Rivas retired as a chief war-
rant officer in 2007 and on
Wednesday returned home from
Peru. He was there for about a
year, instructing budding heli-
copter pilots for a contractor "in
support of U.S. programs to
combat international crime and
narcotics."
Prior to that, he was
deployed to Afghanistan for a
one-year combat tour in 2006
for Operation .Enduring
Freedom. As a teen, he moved
up to Miami when his dad found
a better job, and graduated from
Miami Christopher Columbus
High School in 1983.
That same year, Rios was
serving in Grenada during
Operation Urgent Fury. He also


large tires out of a kill zone.
When the crew landed on a hill,
eager troops in the helicopter
untied the tires, sending them
rolling 25 miles per hour down
the hill and into town.
They never saw the tires
again, but Rivas hopes that
some Afghans put them to artis-
tic use and grew some poppy
out of the tires' holes.
Peru was a different experi-
ence, Rivas says.
"I was on a 15-day-on, 13-
day-off schedule in Peru so I
was often home but did not get
much of an opportunity to sight-
see in Peru," Rivas wrote in an
e-mail. "I will say they have


some of the best food I have
ever tasted. Once the rest of the
world discovers their cuisine,
it's going to take off.
"What struck me the most
was the miles of undisturbed
jungle stretching for as far as
the eye can see," Rivas said of
Peru. "There are many places
that have seen little human
activity...the cold Pacific meets
the desert on the coast, so it's
about as different as you can get
from Key West."
Rios used to own the Riviera
cafe until he sold it recently,
according to Rivas. He couldn't
be reached for comment, as he's
still in Peru.


Mark Rivas and Rafael Rios fly helicopters in Peru to fight
narcotics and crime, but their home will always be Key West.


served in the Gulf War, or
Operation Desert Storm, in
1991. He, graduated Key West
High School in 1980 and retired
from the military in 2005.

Walls go up on transfer site


Trash station
may be done
by Christmas
By KYLE TEAL
kteal@keynoter.com


Wet concrete dribbles from a
nearby truck while construction
workers donning hardhats
smooth out the top of what will
soon be a retaining wall, one of
the first production phases for the
new four-acre Rockland Key
waste transfer station.
The $7.9 million project might


bring some holiday cheer, to
Waste Management Inc. - it's
expected to be finished Christmas
Eve.
Design on the Key West city
project started in January 2004,
city Public Works Director R.B.
Havens said. Then it was pitched
to the Key West City
Commission for nearly $8.4 mil-
lion. The commission approved it
but only under the stipulation city
staff attempt to negotiate with
contractor D.N. Higgins to lower
the cost.
When a resolution to go for-


ward with it passed with its new
$7.9 million price tag in July,
Commissioner Dan Kolhage dis-
sented, saying he couldn't vote to
Spend such money without a clear
plan for its conversion to a waste-
to-energy plant in the future.
Havens said whether the
waste-to-energy facility is plausi-
ble depends on what property
owner Frank Toppino can negoti-
ate with the city for the parcels
surrounding the transfer site. The
city bought the four-acre .parcel
from Toppino for $3.5 million.
After the Rockland building is
complete, the Stock Island trans-
fer site on College Road will
morph into the city's new
Department of Transportation bus
depot; the current depot is on
Palm Avenue.
The Rockland site was home
to 12 trucks Wednesday, travers-
ing the plot to finish the wall.
Stormwater wells were installed
at the end of March.
There will be 17,000 square
feet for the actual transfer facility
and 1,800 square feet for admin-
istrative and maintenance offices.

potential hazards to its aircraft

such as turkey vultures flying
over an open waste-transfer site
were alleviated by the fact the
entire structure will be enclosed.
The city also had to pass the
project through several naval
agencies since it's near Naval Air
Station Key West.
A recycling center will fit
inside. Now, it's in open air at the
Stock Island location next to
Gerald Adams Elementary
School, Florida Keys Community
College, the Key West Golf Club
and million-dollar condominiums
"Any modern day facility is
fully enclosed," Haven said.
It costs about $4 million to
haul approximately 59,000 tons
of garbage up from Key West to a
Broward County landfill each
year, Havens said. Some resi-


dents and city officials say all of
that garbage should be converted
to energy.
Havens and Assistant City
Manager David Fernandez have
said the cost of building a waste-
to-energy facility is likely some-
where between $30 million and
$50 million. They old waste-to-
energy facility at Stock Island
was shut down amid complaints
from neighbors who bought their
condominiums after the waste
site was up and running.
That center, in operation from
1987 to 2004, "became a training
ground" for maintenance workers
who found higher-paying jobs on
the mainland, Havens said. The
turnover rate for workers who
could operate the technical
machines was 275 percent.

Project adds
more access
to waterfront
By KYLE TEAL
kteal@keynoter.com


Key West city commission-
ers have the opportunity
Tuesday to green-light a project
that would pave an extension of
Eaton Street leading to the
Truman Waterfront.
Discussion is scheduled for
the City Commission meeting
that starts at 6 p.m. in Old City
Hall, 510 Greene St.
The project is being pushed
because "a new roadway and
sidewalk are necessary to ensure
the ongoing safe operation of
the Outer Mole Pier," city docu-
ments read.
The money would come from
the Navy Mole Lease Fund-and
should cost no more than
$33,101 for the 20 foot-wide
asphalt sidewalk along the road.
"The Navy's share of cruise-
ship rental revenue goes into
that fund: they own the Outer
Mole" pier, Assistant City
Manager David Fernandez said.
"Any dockage that we collect
here belongs to the Navy. They
are able to keep it locally, but
they control what the money is
used for."

the New York-based collection
agency now under contract
with the city.
Only $15 of every $25 park-
ing ticket is now being collect-
ed, and Key West is looking at
bringing in $110,000 less than
expected in parking fines this
fiscal year. A new collection
agency is sorely needed,
Assistant City Manager David
Fernandez said.
Another idea for raising rev-
enue has bar owners in the city
upset. The Commission post-


"The new roadway would
run from the property line of
Truman Annex and the city
toward the Truman Waterfront,"
city documents read. "The road
would terminate at the existing
concrete East Quay prome-
nade."
Contractor Charley Toppino
and Sons Inc. will do the con-
struction under the city's gener-
al services contract. But the city
will also have the option to go
out for bid instead.
The Navy, like the city, has
been in legal disagreements
with the nearby Truman
Waterfront neighborhood, rep-
resented by the Truman Annex
Master Property Owners
Association.
In August, the association
claimed it owns a parcel of land
on Eaton Street, but the Navy
said otherwise. Facilities
Engineering Command South-
east mailed a letter dated June
26 to group president Tom
Tukey asking that a fence that
closes off that property be
opened for public access.
Ultimately, the city, Navy
and homeowners group reached
a deal to settle two lawsuits.

val coordinators objected, say-
ing the festivals keep their
businesses alive and that they
wouldn't be able to pay those
kinds of costs all at once.
Commissioner Dan
Kolhage, the city's financial
watchdog, called the 100 per-
cent up-front payment "too
aggressive."
"We're going to have to
have a workshop," Fernandez
said, adding that non-profits
will still be granted financial
exemptions of some sort.
"Now we're looking at how to
soften the proposal."
In fiscal year 2006-07, the
city "lost more than $120,000
in under-reimbursed expenses
as a result of exceptions grant-
ed for nonprofit and other
events," according to city doc-
uments.
Scholl also said a sin tax on
cigarettes and alcohol is also
being explored.

Governor signs
bill regulating
Citizens Property
McClatchy Tribune

Gov. Charlie Crist has signed
into law an extended freeze on
Citizens Property Insurance
Corp.'s rates and beefed-up
penalties for insurers that violate


state regulations.
. The sweeping property insur-
ance bill, touted as a "homeown-
ers' bill of rights," was made up
of about 25 parts. The governor
approved all but one: a provision
providing loans to small insurers.
Crist's support for the legisla-
tion comes as no surprise: He has
called for lowering insurance
rates and holding insurers


accountable since he was elected
in 2006. Late last year, Crist
recruited a team of attorneys to
investigate whether the state
should sue insurers over certain
rate hikes.
The bill Crist signed
Wednesday:
* Requires insurers to use
state-approved methods to pre-
dict the risk of hurricanes.

Feds pay Gregory his due

NOAA awards Keys marine agent for life work


By KEVIN WADLOW
Senior Staff Writer
kwadlow@keynoter.com


Doug Gregory knew fish, and
he knew his Key West neigh-
bors.
That- combination drew
Gregory to his job as the Florida
Sea Grant extension agent in
Key West 17 years ago.
On June 2 in Washington,
D.C., he'll receive a National
Oceanic and Atmospheric,
Administration award for being
among the best in the country at
what he does.
"It's somewhat of a surprise
since I didn't know I was nomi-
nated this year," Gregory said.
"It's an honor, certainly."
NOAA Fisheries (also known
as the National Marine Fisheries
Service) named Gregory the
national winner of the Public
Education, Community Service
and Media Award, part of the
third annual Sustainable
Fisheries Leadership Awards
program.


"Gyowing up in a fishing
family, Doug Gregory has the
sensitivity to understand fisher-
men and their work ethic," Jim
Balsiger, assistant administrator
for NOAA Fisheries, said in a
prepared statement.
Gregory points out he was
born 57 years 4go - the same
year the Dry Tortugas shrimp
grounds were discovered. That
discovery brought him to Key
West at the age of six months.
"I basically grew up onr a
shrimp boat," he recalled. "My
family are all shrimp fisher-
men."
After graduating from Key
West High School, he left to
earn a biology degree. His first
post-graduate job was on Florida
lobster research.
He later joined the staff of the
Gulf of Mexico Fishery
Management Council in 1984 as
a specialist in lobster and reef

fish. In 1991, he was named
Monroe County's marine exten-
sion agent.
"While I was doing research
and working for the regulatory
agencies, I found I had a knack
for communicating with fisher-
men," Gregory said. "This keeps
me working in the fishery field
in a place that probably has the
most fishery production in the
southeast U.S."
The Florida Keys
Commercial Fishermen's
Association nominated Gregory
for the award.
"Doug works hard," the asso-
ciation's executive director,
Scott Zimmerman, said. "He
deserves to be recognized for his
efforts over the years. He does
so much educational outreach
for both the recreational and
commercial stakeholders."
Among accomplishments
cited by NOAA Fisheries are
Gregory's efforts to bring fisher-
men into the regulatory process.
"He began writing columns


1 for local
. ' newspapers to
keep fisher-
i men and the
general public
better
i-' ' informed. His
Media efforts
S. ', over the years
GREGORY have paid
off," the
agency says in a prepared state-
ment. "He has helped empower
commercial fishermen to take an
active role with state and federal
regulators in ensuring fisheries
remain sustainable for future
generations."
Gregory said, "With the help
of local newspapers and radio,
we were able to increase aware-
ness about fishery issues and the
importance of the commercial
industry. People were interested
in things that were happening."
He will be the only Floridian
honored at the June 2 awards.
Gregory said he's just doing his
job.
"I get to apply my knowledge
to help fishermen," he said.
"And this is home."

incorrect myths


Many see
mental health
in wrong light
Today closes out National
Mental Health Awareness
Month and with all the miscon-
ceptions, myths and stigma
associated with mental illness,
local providers want to get the
word out that many of them are
simply not true.
Janice .Drewing, executive
director of Heron-Peacock
Supported Living, which pro-
vides residential and support
services for adults with mental-
health problems in Marathon
and Key West, calls the effort
"Mental Health Myth Busters."
She points out the following:
* There is no correlation
between mental illness and
intellect. Many famous and tal-
ented people from all walks of
life have had some type of
mental illness, including
Abraham Lincoln, Winston
Churchill, Buzz Aldrin, Carrie
Fisher, Terry Bradshaw, Isaac
Newton and playwright
Tennessee Williams - who
lived in Key West (Source:
National Alliance for Mental
Health).
* Mental illness can affect
anyone at any time and mental
illnesses are very common. In
fact, they are more common
than cancer, diabetes or heart
disease. About 5 million adults
and 5 million children and ado-
lescents suffer from a serious
mental condition that signifi-
cantly interferes with function-
ing. Major depression, bipolar

* About one in five adults
ages 18 and older has a diag-
nosable mental disorder. With
proper care and treatment,
between 70 and 90 percent of
them experience a significant
reduction of symptoms and an
improved quality of life. More
than two-thirds of Americans
who have a mental illness lead
productive lives (Source: U.S.

+ Stigma is not just a matter
of using the wrong word or
action; stigma is about disre-
spect. It's the use of negative
labels to identify a person liv-
ing with mental illness. Fear of
stigma, and the resulting dis-
crimination, discourages peo-
ple and families from getting
the help they need (Source:
National Mental Health
Information Center).
* Mental illnesses are bio-
logically based brain disorders.
They cannot be overcome
through will power and are not
related to a person's character
or intelligence (Source:
National Alliance for Mental
Health).
* Without treatment, the
consequences of mental illness
for the individual and society
are staggering: Unnecessary
disability, unemployment, sub-
stance abuse, homelessness,
inappropriate incarceration,
suicide and wasted lives; The
economic cost of untreated
mental illness in the United
States is more than $100 billion
each year (Source: National
Alliance for Mental Health).
+ There is a misperception
that mentally ill people are vio-

lent, which contributes to the
stigma. The majority of people
with mental illness are not vio-
lent and people who are not
mentally ill conduct the majori-
ty of violent acts. Mentally ill
people are more likely to be
victims of violence than perpe-
trators, and more likely to hurt
themselves than hurt other peo-
ple (Source: American

Are you ready for a little gratuitous nudity?


This column is about gratu-
itous nudity. Sorry, but it
appears to be what's hap-
pening. Certainly at the
Waterfront Playhouse, the
Naked Boys Singing production
promotes itself as that and its
opening song is "Gratuitous
Nudity."
The
musical
romp show-
cases good
voices,
. 46 amusing
choreogra-
phy, bold
Stances and
absolute
nudity start
to finish -
even some
Judi Bradford cartwheels.
("I taught
him that!" exclaimed Roberta
dePiero in the opening night
audience. She taught gymnastics
at Island Gymnastics when
hometown Naked Boy Spencer
Gates was a young student
there.)
If you didn't see it the first
time it came around in a previous
season, this time it is even better
with the sensational addition of
Gates, a graduate of Key West
High School and son of affec-
tionately notorious Gerri Louise
Gates, the southernmost Bette
Midler. The parental Gates now
live in Tampa and summer in
Canada.
Spencer has been a member
of the off-Broadway cast of
Naked Boys since July of 2007.
He was a childhood power on
Key West stages, starring with
uncanny presence in Keys Kids
productions and then keeping
pace with adults in Red Barn
and Waterfront plays before
heading off to Manhattan on his
own.
When the show's originator
Robert Schrock put together the
traveling casts, Gates refused two
offers. "I can't do this show in
my hometown," he said. The
third time, he got to pick his role
and the deal was made.
Gates says he's gotten nothing
but support in Key West. "It's
great. If there's any place in the
world that understands this play,
it's Key West," he said. "All my
old high school friends are here
in town and my friends in the
theater. It's party after party."
Gates' parents will be in town
to see the Key West show next

working," he quipped.
Gates returns to New York
after this run and then plays in
Pirates of Penzance in
Nantucket during July.

The girls don't get quite as
naked as the boys do. The Key
West Burlesque shows are more
quaint and cute and coy, but still
involving tassel twirls. It's a vin-

The ten-person troupe heads

The show's founder Tatah
Dujour was selected from 125
candidates to compete in the top

Exotic World Pageant, at the
Palms Casino Resort, Saturday,
June 7. She performs "Piece of

The whole troupe, as the Red

Part of the team leaves Key
West June 3, driving the props
and costumes across the
Continental Divide; the rest fly
out.
They'll be back in Key West
June 17, ready for a couple
months off.
A fundraiser for the young
troupe's travel expenses at the
Southernmost House last week
drew a delighted crowd that saw
a poolside presentation along
with a silent auction, raffle and
other fun events. Anyone wishing
to contribute their support can
call Tatah at (305) 433-0165.
They'll be accepting donations
until the credit card bills come in

Krupa's Creative
Kids to Auction
Artworks
Students at Treasure Village
Montessori School in
Islamorada teamed up with
artist Stacie Krupa for the sec-
ond year in a row to create paint-
ings to be sold to benefit the
school.
Krupa, an expressionist
painter whose artwork was
recently featured in HGTV's


"Dream House" in Islamorada,
collaborated on paintings with
10 Treasure Village Montessori
students from grades three
through six in her Islamorada
studio. The paintings, signed by
both Krupa and the individual
students, will be sold to the high-
est bidder at a private auction to
be held June 8.
Students were picked to par-
ticipate in the project with Krupa
based on artistic ability and also
on their desire to pursue creative

endeavors. Each week at her stu-
dio, Krupa showed the students
how to work with professional
quality canvas, brushes, and
paints. She helped the students
explore their natural abilities
while guiding them to create
some unusually striking paint-
ings.
Krupa added her contribu-
tions to the students' canvasses
so that each artwork was truly a
collaboration between student
and master artist.
"I was surprised how mature,
self-motivated, and open to artis-
tic experimentation the students
were," said Krupa. "They will-
ingly embraced the collaborative
aspect of the project to create
impressive art."
Among the many things the
students learned from Krupa, one
stood out. "The thing that sticks
in my head the most from Ms.
Krupa is 'Art is Art,'" says third-
grader Brianna Wilson. "There is


no right or wrong way."
"My perspective about art has
totally changed now," says sixth-
grader Jen Filpes. "When I see a
mistake, I realize it is not a mis-
take, it is just part of my unique
style."
"You can never mess up and
you need to try new things on
your painting," said Carly
Dehart, a third-grader. "If I used
orange and did not want it, all I
need to do is color over it." All
the budding artists agreed with
fifth-grader Emily Tagliareni that
painting with Stacie Krupa was
"fun, messy, and exciting."
What did Krupa learn from
her students? "Regardless of
how 'in the zone' I was when
painting with the students, every-
thing stops for snack time,"
recalled a smiling Krupa. "I also
learned that I am much more
patient than I thought I was."

Montessori students will be auc-
tioned off at an Art Priv6 event
at Ziggies & Mad Dog's restau-
rant in Islamorada on Sunday,
June 8, from 6 to 10 p.m. The
school plans an elegant evening
for grt collectors, with a five-
course gourmet meal paired with
fine wines, followed by the auc-
tion.
Tickets for the dinner, wine
pairing, and auction are $100 per
person. Call (305) 664-3391 for
tickets or purchase them at
Treasure Village Montessori,
mile marker 86.7 or at Ziggies &
Mad Dog's, mile marker 83, in
Islamorada. Reservations are
required at this popular event,
which sold out last year.
"Last year's event raised
more than $16,000 for the
school," says Principal Kelly
Astin: "That's a tribute to the
exceptionally talented Stacie
Krupa, and her ability to bring
out the creative best in our stu-
dents."
Treasure Village Montessori
is a tuition-free charter school,
with grades pre-K through six.
Krupa serves on the school's
board of directors. Next fall the
school will add a seventh grade
and the following year it will
add an eighth grade. Other stu-
dents participating in the arts
program with Stacie Krupa were
third-grader Ben Pope; fourth-
grader Christian O'Neill; fifth-
graders Courtney Caputo,
Maxwell Schrader-Grace, and
Isis Majeska; and sixth-grader
Conrad Matthews.

Sun Splash dives into the Keys


It's a virtual
diving and
scuba festival
Warm water and a warm wel-
come await water enthusiasts at
Island Sun Splash '08, slated for
June 11 to 14 at venues through-
out Islamorada and Key Largo.
Organized by the Upper Keys
Association of Dive and Snorkel
Operators, the event includes
activities for everyone from
expert divers to families visiting
the reef for the first time.
Special events directed at
youngsters and families are a
hallmark of Island Sun Splash.


"People can come try diving
for the first time, take a dive
resort course or get fully certi-
fied," said Gary Mace, one of the
event organizers.
Discover Scuba diving classes
are to be offered so visitors can
get an introductory taste of div-
ing. Snorkeling lessons are set to
make sightseeing from the
water's surface a fun and safe
.experience.
Underwater photography and
video seminars are to be accom-
panied by photo and video con-
tests, with separate divisions for
kids and adults. A land and sea
photo scavenger hunt also is

younger that participates in the
junior division wins a prize.
Kids also can enter the Junior

that focus on fun, sportsmanship
and competition.
The Reef Environmental

duct its popular fish identification
classes so no introductions will
be necessary when snorkelers
and divers come nose to snout
with local underwater inhabi-

Shallow reefs and wrecks await
newly certified and less-experi-
enced divers, while advanced
divers can make the journey down
to vessels such as the U.S. Coast
Guard cutters Bibb and Duane and
the freighter Eagle.
Extremely experienced divers
can attend a daylong technical-
diving session followed by a
seminar on deep technical diving
and the use of rebreathers.

Water fest goes political


Underwater
event set
for July 12
"Reefpublicans" and "Demo-
crabs" are to congregate in the
Lower Keys July 12 when the
24th annual Underwater Music
Festival puts an undersea spin on
the upcoming 2008 presidential-
elections.
The quirky underwater con-.
cert takes place at the Looe Key
Reef, about six miles south of Big
Pine Key. Each year, the subsea
songfest draws as many as 600
divers and snorkelers to explore
the colorful diversity of marine
life that characterizes continental
America's only living coral barri-
er reef.
The 2008 festival is to salute
November's "eel-ections" with
underwater appearances by


divers costumed as "Barackuda
Obama," "Hillary Clintuna" and
"John McClam," among other
political notables.
Set for 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., the
event is staged by Keys radio sta-
tion WWUS 104.1 FM, locally
called U.S. 1. Music is broadcast
underwater via Lubell Laboratory
speakers suspended beneath.
boats positioned at thereef, and
the playlist typically ranges from
humpback-whale songs to
marine-themed ditties such as the
Beatles' "Yellow Submarine" and
Jimmy Buffett's "A Pirate Looks
at 40." There's also music from
Keys musicians.
Participants might even catch
the scuba-diving "presidential
hopefuls" tooting their own horns
- pretending to play underwater
musical instruments like a trom-
bonefish and sax-eel-phone


sculpted by Florida Keys artist
August Powers.
While election "afishionados"
are encouraged to enjoy the
bipartisan party at Looe Key, the
concert also has a serious focus:
promoting preservation of the
Florida Keys' unique coral reef
ecosystem. The musical broad-
cast incorporates diver awareness
announcements prepared by
Florida Keys National Marine
Sanctuary officials, offering tips
on how people can enjoy the
ocean while minimizing their
impact on the reef and overall
marine environment.
Divers and snorkelers who
want to participate in the 2008
Underwater Music Festival can
reserve space aboard boats run by
Lower Keys dive operators.
Visitors and residents with their
own boats can launch from public
ramps and marinas throughout
the area.

It's time to count the fish


17th annual
census set
for July 19
The Reef Environmental
Education Foundation is set to
hold the 17th Great Annual Fish
Count July 19 in Key Largo.
The Great Annual Fish Count
is an international eco-event
where volunteer divers and
snorkelers assist in identifying
and documenting fish diversity
and population trends. The num-
bers are used by marine
researchers, resource managers
and policy makers to help them
assess the condition of the reef
ecosystem.
At 9 a.m. July 19, a fish iden-
tification class with Joe
Cavanaugh, director of field
operations for REEF, is sched-
uled at Horizon Divers, 100
Ocean Drive, mile marker 99.7
in Key Largo. There is no charge
for the class. Tally sheets for the
fish count are to be distributed
during the class.
With their newly learned fish
ID skills, divers and snorkelers
can collect data that will be


aggregated with counts from
around the world, adding to the
117,677 surveys already submit-
ted for research.
After the fish ID class,
Horizon Divers is to host a Great
Annual Fish Count dive with
Cavanaugh the same day. Boats
are to leave the dock at 1:30 p.m.
There is no additional charge to
participate in the fish count, and
Horizon Divers is offering a 10
percent discount off the cost of
the dive charter and rental equip-


ment.
REEF encourages divers to
conduct fish count surveys year-
round. Divers can organize their
own fish count dives individual-
ly, with a dive operator or
through a dive club. To get free
scan forms and information
about marine survey materials,
visit www.reef.org. Survey
results also can be reported
online.
For more information and
reservations, contact REEF at
852-0030 Ext. 1 or call Horizon
Divers at 453-3535.

Seven Key West High
School seniors - three base-
ball players, a softball player,
a soccer player, a football
lineman and a state-champion
wrestler - have signed to fur-
ther their careers in college,
bringing to eight the number
who have won scholarships.
"They are all outstanding

Dalu is


golden


with fly


Charleston man's
eight releases
put him on top
From Day 1, David Dalu of
Charleston, S.C., took the lead
in the Golden Fly Invitational
Tarpon Tournament. At the
end of the final day, he landed
the grand-champion title at
the angling event May 18 to
21 in Islamorada.
One hour and 16 minutes
into the tournament's first
fishing day, Dalu's fly took
the first strike with a tarpon
he later released. By noon, he
had spent two hours and 20
minutes pulling in three sepa-
rate fish that weighed from 80
to 125 pounds.
"That's something I had
prepared for physically," Dalu
said. "I practice extensively in
the yard wifh a bucket
because the more pressure you
can put on the fish, the quick-
er you can land it and the bet-
ter it is for the fish."
Dalu and Capt. Scott
Collins of Marathon ended the
first day as point leaders for
three releases and two weight
fish.

* From the Conch baseball

Alfonso signed with Florida

Blayne Weller is headed for
St. Petersburg College.
"I think all three will do
well in college," coach Miguel
Menendez said. "Raiko and
Kyle's best tools lend them-
selves to the college game.
Blayne will do well, but I
believe he would perform bet-


ter in pro ball because he
would be pitching to guys
using wood bats.
"I think Blayne and Raiko
have a chance to play pro ball
and maybe even Kyle if he
continues to improve."
Alfonso, a slick fielder, hit
.426 this season and will join
an FIU team that was 20-36.

the most for a Conch since

Marathon High School
seniors Jay Hegland and


Alexis Culver were named
athletes of the Year Tuesday.
Hegland and Culver were
the top vote-getters in a poll
of all Dolphin head coaches,
while senior Wayman Ross
and junior Vanessa Sardina
won the school's,
Sportsmanship Award.
Hegland was a three-sport


star at Marathon, this year
being named the top golfer in
the county. He was also an
all-county performer as a
goalie on the soccer team
and played shortstop for the
Dolphin baseball team.
"He was a good leader
and he knew his role on the
team; it was up to him to win

matches," former golf coach
Dean Carrigan said. "Overall,
he's a really good kid. I've
known him for four or five
years and he's definitely the
nicest kid I've ever coached."
Hegland heads to the
University of Tampa this fall,
where he'll be a part of a


perennial Division II golf
power.
"They're a team that typi-
cally has a chance to win a
national championship,"
Carrigan said. He'll be work-
ing with Hegland this summer
while on break from the
Hooters Pro Golf Tour.
"It takes some work and
he's grown up quite a bit and
is ready to make the next step


and be the kind of player I
think he can be," Carrigan
said.
Soccer coach Jim Murphy
said having a strong leader
like Hegland was an invalu-
able resource in his first year
as head coach. He also had a
knack for stopping penalty
shots.
"He kept us in a lot of
games; he had probably the
highest percentage of saved
penalty shots of any goalie
I've ever had," Murphy said.
"He played every game
hard," baseball coach Luis
Leal said. "He'd lay out and
dive to make a play, that's just
the type of kid he is. A lot of
kids play a lot of sports, but he
plays them at a high level."
Culver was also a three-
sport star most of her career,
but played only volleyball and
softball this year. Both of her
coaches said Culver was more
than deserving of the award.
"She played short and bat-
ted fourth all year, tied for the
most runs batted in on the
team and was consistently one
of our best fielders," softball
coach Andrea Murphy said.


"She made all the plays she
should and a lot that surprised
everyone."
"She was the best player on
the team in volleyball and
softball," volleyball coach
Kevin Freeman said.
Culver will take her talents
to Lake Sumter Community
College, a Division I volley-
ball program in Central
Florida, this fall.
Coaches for Sardina and
Ross say the pair weren't
vocal leaders, but were
respected by everyone and
always put the team first.
Football coach Lance
Martin said Ross was always
an unassuming player, not
drawing attention to himself
like many professional ath-
letes do.
"He led by example, always
in the weight room to make
himself better," Martin said.
"And in the classroom; he did-
n't wait until his senior year
and not get a scholarship
because they thought they
could coast into college."


Ross will be a linebacker at
Division I Western Michigan
University next fall, where he
plans to study criminal justice.
He'll play his first collegiate
game against the University of
Nebraska, one of America's
most storied college pro-
grams.
Sardina was also a three-
sport star at Marathon, playing
volleyball, basketball and
softball. But it was her charac-
ter that earned her the
Sportsmanship Award, coach-
es said.
"She's a great teammate
and just knowing her they
couldn't have picked a better
kid than that," Murphy,
Sardina's softball coach, said.
"She has a great personality
and is kind to everyone."
"Very well deserved; she
always had a positive attitude
and never had anything bad to
say about anyone," Freeman
said. "She was a teammate
that you would want on your
team."

be the destination for Kara
Haack,' who led the 2007-08
Conch girls soccer team with
28 goals and 15 assists. Haack
will be reunited with former
Conch star Britney
Commander, who will be a

"Kara represents what can
be accomplished if you put the
time and sustained effort in
becoming the best at what you
set out to be as an athlete,"
Conch soccer coach Scott Paul
said. "She represents the last

* Jiana Hernandez, who
played second base and hit


.300 for the softball team,
signed with Broward

try to help Broward bounce
back from a 13-31 season.
"She is someone you can
always count on, on and off

many of our younger players
have picked up on. Playing in

"He's a hungry kid who's
had a rough life and sees an
opportunity for success
through football," said
Hughes, who believes


Cormack can eventually be a
300-pound center or left tack-
le.
* Ralph Major, who won
the state 189-pound wrestling
title in February and had a
career 99-10 record, signed
with Pratt (Kansas)

"I was looking for a junior
college that will allow him to
adapt to the demands of col-
lege and the transition of liv-
ing on his own in a strange
land - Kansas and winter,"
said his coach,. John Moeller.
"My hopes are that he will
stay eligible with his grades
and transfer to a Division 1
team in two years. He has the
ability to be one of the best
wrestlers in the nation."
* The Conch athlete going
the farthest from home is
swimmer Luke Knight, who

went to the state meet two
consecutive years and holds
"seven school records.

TARPON / From 41

By the end of the third
day, Dalu had scored eight
releases and three weight
fish of 85, 94 and 97
pounds.
First runner-up was
James Holland Jr. of
Seattle, Wash., with six
releases and weight fish of
88, 85 and 79 pounds.
Holland holds a world
record for catching a 202-
pound, 8-ounce tarpon on
20-pound tippet in 2001.
He was guided by Capt.
Joe Rodriguez of
Homestead.
Second runner-up was
Andy Mill of Aspen, Colo.,
with one release and three
weight fish of 88, 102 and
132 pounds. His guide was

Tad Burke of Tavernier;
and Vern Olson of Camano
Island, Wash., with Capt.
Paul Tejera of Islamorada.
The team earned a com-
bined total of 6,355 points.
"For me, really, the
thrilling part of fishing in
the Keys is about being
around the best anglers and
guides in the world," Dalu
said. "The Florida Keys
leads the world in develop-
ment of techniques in shal-
low-water sight fishing."
The tournament drew 27
anglers who caught and
released 74 tarpon, 19 of
them entered for weight
points.
