It's lines



out for the



old 7 Mile


DOT orders
no more fishing
as of this week
By RYAN MCCARTHY
rmccarthy@keynoter.com

Slowly but surely, the old
Seven Mile Bridge leading to
Pigeon Key off Marathon is
being closed.
The 2.2-mile span was closed
to vehicular traffic March 4 due
to its degradation. The Florida
Department of Transportation
says signs banning fishing from
the bridge will be posted by the
end of the week.
The old Seven Mile is among
the most popular fishing spots in


Marshal


the Keys. Its easy access to the
water is especially valuable to
those who don't have access to
boats.
"The corrosion of the main
girders had progressed and we
were very uncomfortable with it.
People can still bike and walk on
it, but the fishermen line up next
to one another right on the edge
of the structure," DOT bridge
engineer Frank Guyamier said.
"That creates a concentrated
load."
Guyamier said there are about
240 feet of space at the west end
of the bridge where fishing will
still be allowed.

An overheated air condition-

a city official said Tuesday.
City Fire Marshal Michael

wrong kind for the particular


unit.
The Key West Fire Depart-
ment received the first emer-
gency call about 6:30 p.m., and
hundreds of Key West residents

Miami angler Clifford Cooper carries poles and gear away
from the old Seven Mile Bridge Tuesday afternoon likely the
last time he'll do so for quite some time. The state Department
of Transportation plans to close the bridge to fishing by the
end of this week. It might be closed even to pedestrian traffic
within weeks.



LaTorre learns


fate on Friday


Former county
official faces
up to five years
By RYAN MCCARTHY
rmccarthy@keynoter.com

Convicted former Monroe
County Social Services director
Louis LaTorre is scheduled for
sentencing on a felony charge of
driving under the influence-seri-
ous bodily injury at 9 a.m.
Friday in Key West.
LaTorre, 60, faces up to five


years in prison and a $5,000
fine. A six-person jury convicted
him May 6 of striking 35-year-
old Nadezda Bowman's sport
utility vehicle head-on early
April 15, 2006.
LaTorre was driving south-
bound in the northbound lane of
U.S. 1 at mile marker 8 at 2:45
a.m. that day when the accident
occurred.
Bowman had to be removed
from her car by the Jaws of Life

Even Broward anglers use bridge


BRIDGE / From 1

Miami resident Clifford
Cooper drove from Miami to fish
the bridge Tuesday. He was sur-
prised to hear it would close and
said many anglers there would be
disappointed to lose a popular
location.
"A lot of us come down all the
time," Cooper said. "There's fish-
ermen from as far as Broward
and Dade County coming down
to fish and they each look for-
ward to fishing on the bridge."
It's not only anglers who use
the bridge. Runners, cyclists and
inline skaters pack it most days,
but Guyamier says it's possible
the bridge will soon close even to
them.
"We're- doing a load rating
right now and ... it's very proba-
ble we may have to close it alto-
gether in a few weeks once the
final numbers come in," he said.
"The main girders are shot; the
reason they're still in place is
they were designed for trains, but
they've seen their lifespan."
This, combined with Monroe
County's inability to secure a $17
million state loan to help fund
half the repairs, could mean one
of Marathon's most popular des-
tinations, the historic Pigeon Key,
could be without land access for a
long time. Should the bridge
close altogether, only a ferry sub-
sidized by DOT and managed by
the county would transport visi-
tors to the island. It disembarks
from Knights Key.
"They're trying to secure that
funding and that's a difficult task
right now. They're still commit-


ted ... so we're seeing if they
come up with another way,"
Guyamier said, adding DOT's
matching funds are "already set
aside for the project."
Pigeon Key is on the National
Register of Historic Places. It
housed workers building Henry

Flagler's Florida East Coast
Railway in the 1900s and now is
home to a railroad museum and
educational programs in the
restored buildings.
Pigeon Key Foundation
Executive Director Jess Shows
said shutting the bridge com-
pletely would "affect us serious-
ly," but his main concern is


whether the island and its work-
ers still have access to the bridge.
Shows said workers use scoot-
ers and motorcycles to commute
and supplies are sometimes
brought to the island using golf
carts. Doing that with the ferry
service would be difficult, he
said.
"It totally changes everything
if they close it to us. My hope is
they'll be gracious enough to
leave it open until the barges and
cranes show up," Shows said.
Shows hosted a group from
the state Department of
Environmental Protection
Thursday. Representatives from
DEP, DOT and the county met
Friday to coordinate a plan by
which the bridge is repaired and
turned over to DEP as part of the
Overseas Heritage Trail.
Ownership of Pigeon Key would
be turned over to the state as well.
"There's a lot of people in the
Keys that ... use [the bridge] as a
means of exercise. There's no
traffic and you can bike or
Rollerblade without worrying,"
Guyamier said. "It's just a diffi-
cult agreement to coordinate
because you have three agen-
cies."
Fishing from the designated
fishing pier at the west end of the
old Seven Mile and the park at
the north end of the bridge will
not be affected.
Fishing opportunities were-
expanded the past year when
extended platforms were built on
the old Tom's Harbor Channel
Bridge and Tom's Harbor Cut
Bridge, at mile markers 60.6 and
61.2 respectively.

and was in a coma for weeks,
suffering severe injuries and
brain damage.
Two separate tests showed
LaTorre's blood alcohol level to
be 0.101 and 0.102. Driving
with blood-alcohol levels of
0.08 or higher is illegal in
Florida.


Assistant State Attorney"
Manny Madruga said sentencing
is based on guidelines, score
sheets and arguments made by
the defense.
"We have a score sheet done
on the case which shows 51


months on the
low end. What
you have is a
,; situation
where the
minimum is
not far from
the maxi-
m u m "
LaTORRE Madruga said,
noting a vic-
tim's injuries are accounted for.
"Since the injuries were so
severe, the points are quite high
for that particular charge," he
said.
"This is not a minimum


mandatory sentence; the judge is
free to go below that," LaTorre


defense attorney Hal
Schuhmacher said.
Schuhmacher said he hopes
LaTorre's longtime good stand-
ing in the community will be a
mitigating factor in the sentenc-
ing.
"We have over 70 letters
being presented to the court.
He's been very involved in the
community, spending his career
providing for the less fortunate
and he has no prior criminal his-
tory whatsoever," he said.

Judge Luis Garcia denied
LaTorre bond on May 14 and he
has been jailed since then await-

Drug

store

likely

Court rules
Walgreens can
move forward
Keynoter Staff
Barring more legal chal-
lenges, a new Walgreens drug
store will rise from where the old
Scotty's Hardware store on Big
Pine Key has remained vacant
for the better part of this decade.
On June 4, the Third District
Court of Appeal in Miami sum-
marily rejected a challenge to
development approvals given for
the project by, the Monroe
County Commission in 2006.
That means once county permits
are issued, shovels can turn dirt.
Following approval; the
Florida Keys Citizens Coalition,
which comprises four Keys
environmental groups, sued,
arguing the development agree-
ment isn't valid and should be
voided.
"There are some remaining
legal challenges that could be
exercised, and we're going to
consider that," President Ed,
Davidson said Tuesday. "It's
kind of complicated, the legal
challenges. What's important is
that the court did not write a
decision that we were wrong and
the developer was right. They
didn't write an opinion ...
embracing the developer. There
is no definitive opinion."
Chief Assistant County
Attorney Bob Shillinger said in
an e-mail that "in a very brief
opinion, the court dismissed the
[coalition's] petition ... and
denied its request for oral argu-
ment on the matter."
The store's plans call for
16,500 square feet of space with
a drive-through window.
The project has been planned
since 2004, when developer
Gadinsky Real Estate LLC
applied for approval to raze the
Scotty's and build a 26,000-
square-foot Walgreens. But
extensive opposition from
neighbors led to denial.
Negotiations followed,
resulting in the smaller store
gaining approval.

Businesses start to put back the pieces


FIRE / From I

real estate agencies in the Keys.
More than 50 firefighters
isolated the fire to the single
building that houses all three of
the businesses. Nearby homes
were protected, Davila said.
"Because of the length of the
fire, we had to take multiple
turns going in," Davila said.
The fire was extinguished by
11 p.m., though firefighters
were putting out hot spots until


Monday inorning.
A firefighter holding a hose
lost control and fell to the
ground, sending the hose into a
snake-like dance for a split sec-
ond, until fellow firefighters
came to the rescue.
When supply ran low, fire-
.fighters resorted to filling up
their air tanks at Dive Key West
on North Roosevelt Boulevard.
One firefighter collapsed
from heat exhaustion and was
transported to Lower Keys
Medical Center. According to


Davila, he's back home and
feeling fine.

smoke billowed from his busi-

Dryer fire destroys home

The fire that started in a

Pine Key on Saturday ended the
life of Pepe the parrot, melted the
bumpers off the back of a Volvo,

The owners of three
Islamorada lots who've been on
the waiting list for building per-
mits for more than four years will
ask the Islamorada Village
Council Thursday to finally
release them.
The administrative appeals are
on the 5:30 p.m. Thursday agen-
da for the regular council meeting
at the Islamorada Fire Station,
mile marker 81.8 on Upper
Matecumbe Key.
Under environmental protec-
tion rules, Monroe County gov-
ernments are limited in the num-
ber of new-housing permits they
can issue annually. Laws also
promise the landowners of most
vacant lots that after four years of
being denied a permit, the gov-
ernment should either issue a per-
mit or buy their land for fair mar-
ket value.
Cases reaching the council
Thursday:
Christopher Hope is appeal-
ing for permits on his two
Flamingo Bay Hammock Road
lots, on the Upper Matecumbe
Key bayside near mile marker
83.2. He purchased the lots in
2003 and applied for permits in


everything new in it. Now it's all
gone again."
Champ says he and his girl-
friend Diane Leachman, who
shared the home with him on
Joyce Road in Port Pine Heights,
went fishing in Pine Channel
Saturday evening. A neighbor
drove out to the channel to find
them, yelling that the house was
on fire. Champ said when he
looked back he could see the
glow of flames above the trees.
Professional and volunteers
with Monroe County Fire Rescue
responded, and had the fire under
control in less than 17 minutes.


January 2004. Part of the proper-
ty includes high-quality hard-
wood hammock, according to a
staff report.
Janna and Joseph Pinder III
want a permit for a Key Honey
Lane lot off mile marker 88.9 on
Plantation Key. The Randall
Adams subdivision property, pur-
chased in 2000, was valued at
$23,000 in 2003 for tax purposes.
The assessment was pared to
$10,400 after the lot was deter-
mined to be part of a minimally
disturbed hammock deemed suit-
able for preservation, which
makes it more difficult to qualify
for a permit. The Pinders applied
for a permit in January 2004.
+ Brandi Horton seeks a per-
mit for a lot at Indian Mound
Trail and Apache Street in the
Indian Harbor subdivision, off
mile marker 89 bayside on
Plantation Key. Horton applied
for a permit in December 2003.
The triangular lot is assessed at
$26,880.
Also Thursday, board mem-
bers will review a resolution
declaring that the village will
seek reimbursement from the
state for money spent to build
five sewer treatment plants.

Town meeting
At 5:30 p.m. June 18, Village
Manager Kenneth Fields will
hear concerns from residents at
an informal open town-hall meet-
ing at the fire station.


"The crews did a tremendous
job," said Acting Battalion Chief
Steven Zavalney. He credited a
piece of equipment called the
Blitzfire Portable Monitor with
helping firefighters get a lot of
water on the structure fast and
limiting the fire damage.
"It looks totaled to me," says
Champ. "Everything's melted."
The concrete block home,
built in the 1970s, once belonged
to his mother, who was a part
owner of Big Pine Key
Glassworks. It was flooded in the
storm surge after Hurricane
Wilma, and everything, he says,
was replaced.
The fire investigation was fin-
ished Saturday, with the fire mar-
shal determining the blaze started
in the clothes dryer. Champ says
that's a mystery.
He says his girlfriend had
dried a load of clothes earlier in
the day but that the dryer, a
Maytag purchased at Home
Depot after Hurricane Wilma,
was not spinning clothes at the
time they went fishing.
Champ and Leachman were
put up in a motel paid for by the
American Red Cross. But only
for three nights.


Today's "the last day so I
don't know what we do then,"
Champ said. He said neighbors
and friends have come forward
with offers of clothing and bed-


clothes, but that he can't accept
them.
"I told 'em, 'I'm living in my
car in a motel room. I don't have
any place to put stuff.'"

Keys Opinion


Combined efforts

solve Keys crimes

There has been much crime news in the paper a machete-
wielding attempted murder suspect, a one-man crime spree in
the Upper Keys, a 100 mph car chase.
In each and every case, the accused were quickly found and
arrested, thanks to a combination of eyewitnesses calling
police, and quick response by law enforcement.
The arrest last week of a West Palm Beach man is a case in
point.
Reckless driving proved the downfall of 31-year-old Frank
Echemendia, who has been charged with two counts of theft,
shoplifting, illegal use of credit cards, grand theft, criminal
mischief and burglary.
A call to 911 about a red Ford Expedition driving recklessly
triggered his downfall after an eyewitness reported the license
number to the Monroe'County Sheriff's Office.
A check in the police computer turned up the driver's identi-
fication and an arrest warrant from Manatee County on charges
'of grand theft auto, grand theft, burglary and more.
. Sgt. Michael DiGiovanni spotted the SUV at 2 a.m. outside
the Key Largo Waffle House. DiGiovanni waited for the sus-
pect to approach the SUV, then arrested Echemendia.
A search of the vehicle found property reported stolen from
several Keys locations. So a late-night hunger attack, alert wit-
nesses and quick police work proved his undoing.
It was a similar story in the arrest of James Michael Dumas,
44, charged with attempted murder after allegedly attacking a
friend with a machete.
Again, eyewitnesses called police, who found the 29-year-
old victim bleeding outside his Key Haven home. Good police
work turned up the suspect nearby, after Dumas reportedly
spent the night hiding in mangroves near the Riviera Canal.
In yet another case solved, a Big Pine Key driver who fled
police and hit speeds of 100 mph was caught because a witness
notified police alarmed by the behavior of a woman leaving a
Marathon lounge.
When the officer pulled up, Ann Ard, 26, reportedly drove
away at high speed down Sombrero Beach Road, turning into
Marathon High School, where Deputy Paul Bean approached
her vehicle.
Ard took off again, fleeing south over the Seven Mile Bridge.
Radioing ahead, deputies deployed road spikes and Ard was
stopped at U.S. 1 and Key Deer Boulevard.
In all three cases, it was the quick response of witnesses and
quick action by police that brought timely arrests.
The best way to reduce crime is this cooperation. And it all
starts with a call to 911 by alert eyewitnesses.

Burned-out house is testament to lack of equipment


EDITOR:
Message to the Marathon City Council:
What are your priorities?
Although we are not residents of Marathon,
we feel we are residents, as we have been
going there for more than 20 years. Each year
we come three to four times and on occasion
stay two to three months, so we know the
community and have many friends there and
have watched you grow and become a city.
If we were taxpayers of the city, we would
be outraged as to what we witnessed a week
ago.
We are renting a house near Sombrero
Beach just across the water from our friend
Rocketman. His house caught on fire, which
started as a small fire on the rear deck.. We
were one of the first to arrive along with the
sheriff, and before the fire department got
there. Once they arrived, we all thought they
would be able to save the house but to our
dismay, it appeared the only water being
applied to the fire was coming from a garden
hose.
Wow. I asked, "Where is the pumper
truck?" In the end, it was the Layton Fire


Department that got the water going onto the
house. The only problem was_ it was too late;
the house and everything Rocketman and his
family had was gone.
Surrounded by water but no way to pump
it. How very sad. Now when we drive by that
new, beautiful fire station, I say, "Why does-
n't the city provide these firefighters, who
risk their lives to fight fires, with the proper
equipment?"
As a tourist community and with all the
lodging facilities and beautiful homes in the
area, one would think that fire protection'
would be a priority in the city budget, but it
appears council members are too busy worry-
ing about city hall or buying an island.
Our hearts go out to Rocketman and his
family. We are just trying to say with this let-
ter, do not lay blame to the flame, but learn a
lesson from what has happened here and put
fire protection up on your list of priorities and
give your firefighters and chief more than a
nice station, but also all the proper equipment
they need.

GLEE Expo shows going green gains support


EDITOR:
Thanks to a dedicated cadre of Earth-
friendly volunteers, the third Green Living
and Energy Education Expo May 10 was suc-
cessful beyond our wildest imagination.
The new Marathon High School was a per-
fect venue and special thanks goes out to all
the administration and staff who generously
donated their time and skills to making sure
everything went smoothly. A huge thank-you
also to all the sponsors, exhibitors, volunteers
and GLEE members, without whom there
would be no expo. We are very flattered by
some recent press stating that GLEE has
5,000 members; if only we would be so fortu-
nate. In truth, our steadily growing member-
ship is but a fraction of that number, but we
do appreciate the vote of confidence.
The estimated 2,000 visitors to this year's
expo were offered the very latest in technolo-
gy and expertise in nearly every aspect of
green living from super-fast industrial
composting to plug-in hybrid school buses,
solar PV and solar hot-water galore, healthy
living and eco-parenting the list goes on.
It's true that green has become cool, at long
last, thanks in no small part to Al Gore, sky-
rocketing fuel prices and a general awareness
that we can't continue to consume Earth's
resources at our current rate without suffering
some catastrophic consequences.
Who knew that the first-ever Green Living
Awards would generate more than 5,000 pop-
ular votes for the most favored green individ-
ual, business, agency and local government?
While some may eschew the notion of com-
petition when it comes to protecting Earth,
the voting achieved GLEE's intention of the
awards, which was to create a vehicle for
learning by driving people to read the 58


impressive applications that were submitted.
We congratulate all the applicants as win-
ners, not only for their green accomplish-
ments thus far but for being ambassadors for
the cause and encouraging friends as far away
as Ethiopia to participate in the voting and
the learning.
We welcome feedback to
info@keysglee.com from all who attended the
expo as we begin planning for next year. In
the meantime, we encourage everyone to keep
learning and making green living choices a
conscious part of their everyday lives.
Together, we will move toward a sustainable
future.
Jody Smith Williams
GLEE vice president

Quit neglecting Key Largo


EDITOR:
I would like to thank County
Administrator Roman Gastesi for his pro-
posal for the county to buy the Rowell's
property. Most of us are worn out from -
asking the county to buy something for the
residents of Key Largo. We will support
him all the way.
There is no public water access or
event property anyplace in Key Largo
north of Harry Harris Park; this is a dis-
grace.
We have lost many water-access prop-
erties Rowell's, HoBo's, America
Outdoors, the Quay, the boat ramps up the
18-Mile Stretch and more. Seems like the
residents don't count for much here.
There was talk of at least a small dock
at the new government center (Quay) for
small boats and a place folks could land
long enough to go shopping, etc. But now
some commissioners say people don't
want that. I ask, What people? Surely not
our merchants.
The area of Tarpon Basin is well pro-
tected from winds so this is where most
boaters anchor when passing through. It's
even a great place for a mooring field, as
confirmed by some of the people that
helped develop the Vero Beach and
Marathon mooring fields.
And now they are taking out the land in
the middle of Lake Surprise; what a nice
little park that would make, free land in


the Keys and we remove it. Sad.
If they really think they need to restore
water flow, then put culverts like they
have on the rest of the Stretch. When
Tampa lost its bridge, they converted what
was left into parks and fishing areas for
the public.
It is interesting that Commissioner
Dixie Spehar, when hearing Gastesi's pro-
posal, was quoted as saying the idea left
her. "with my mouth hanging open."
Now maybe she will know how most of
the residents here felt when the Quay
property was purchased for a government
center, because many feel it is not needed
and just another tax burden for us. Sad to
think that buying a property for the people
of this county to use would cause anyone
to feel like this.
Always an excuse no money, not in
budget. Seems to be plenty of money for
other things that do not benefit the public.
In the cruising circles, Key Largo has
become known as unfriendly and, "Oh, we
don't stop there, there is no place to
dinghy into to go shopping, etc."
Marathon, Key West, Fort Myers and
many more have done a great job with
their city marinas, and created a workforce
for the city and affordable living. We have
waited a long time for someone to get this
done in Key Largo. We hope and pray it
happens.

DOT starts tossing


its weight around


You might have heard about
Derrie-Air, the nation's newest
airline. The concept is simple:
The more you weigh, the more
you pay.
"After all, it takes more fuel -
more energy to get more
weight from Point A to Point B,"
the airline says on its Web site.
"So we will charge passengers
based on how much mass they
add to the plane. The heavier you
and your luggage are, the more
trees we'll plant to make up for
the trouble of flying you from
place to place."
OK, Derrie-Air -
"$2.25 a pound *
Philadelphia to Los
Angeles," "$1.65 a
pound Philadelphia to
Miami" isn't real
but rather a bogus air- .
line created by
Philadelphia's two
daily newspapers to
gauge click-throughs
on their Web sites.
Turns out, lots of peo- Larry
ple clicked on the ad. Keynot
Notwithstanding the
ethical questions
raised by newspapers posting a
false ad, our collective national
weight has ballooned into a real
problem.
Who would have thought it
would affect Keys fishing? But it
has, as detailed in our Page 1
story today. Simply, anglers on
the old Seven Mile Bridge weigh
too much for the aging span to
support them. There's the real
danger they could breach the
bridge, fall through and become
chum in the churning waters
below.
Oh, the state Department of
Transportation won't actually say
the plumpness of those fishing
there is the reason it's banning
fishing on the Marathon end of
the bridge starting today. But
read between the lines.
. "Concentrated load." That's
how a DOT engineer describes
the stress on the bridge from
those planted there, dangling
lines. Well, let's face it, there are
plenty of plus-sized people


working at DOT, too.
How come they closed it to
fishermen but not bicyclists,
inline skaters, walkers and jog-
gers? DOT says they don't create
a "concentrated load." Which is
probably right because they are
exercising and keeping that con-
centrated load from developing.
Then again, they might end up
being banned, too. More study is
being done to determine if their
load is concentrated enough to
warrant complete closure.
Until then, if I'm skating along
the bridge but happen
to have a pole over
the side doing some
trolling, could some-
one tell me what that
constitutes?
This is no slam on
fishermen because not
all fishermen are
oversized and over-
sized people partici-
pate in all sorts of
recreation, like bowl-
Kahn ing. It just seems odd
Dr Editor that the state agency
says some friends or
family out for a few
hours of fishing could result in
the historic span just falling
down.
"The corrosion of the main
girders had progressed and we
were very uncomfortable with it.
People can still bike and walk on
it, but the fishermen line up next
to one another right on the edge
of the structure," says Frank
Guyamier, the bridge engineer.
OK, reasonable enough. But
DOT should have been more cre-
ative in deciding to just shut off
one of the world's great fishing
piers, one that draws anglers not
only from the Keys but the main-
land, too.
It should have thought about
incorporating some of Derrie-
Air's strategies or maybe put a
scale at the beginning of the
bridge saying, "You must weigh
under this to proceed," sort of
like yard sticks for carnival rides.
Pound for pound, that would be
a better solution.

Chappy's shifts into high gear


Chaplins close
on permits for
new restaurant
By RYAN MCCARTHY
rmccarthy@keynoter.com

Longtime Marathon resi-
dent Bettye Chaplin says she
can barely believe the dream
of building a waterfront
restaurant on her family's
Knights Key property is inch-
ing closer to reality.
Chaplin and husband Jim
have been working toward
building the restaurant on
three of their nine lots for

more than 10 years, with
seemingly endless roadblocks
along the way. She says
Chappy's, as it will be known,
is scheduled to open by next
Jan. 29 at the latest. It'll be
near the base of the Seven
Mile Bridge on the Marathon
side, on the ocean side.
"We'll probably open
before that, but Chappy's is
definitely within weeks of get-
ting the finished permits. Final
plans will be submitted within
a week and we expect to have
a building permit by the end of
June," Chaplin said, adding
Jim and son Steve will be the

general contractor and fore-
man, respectively, when con-
struction begins.
The family has even recon-
sidered what was once a major
stumbling block and plans to
construct a 28-by-58-foot pool
on the property.
When the City Council
approved the major condition-
al use for the 185-seat restau-
rant in 2006, the Chaplins
agreed to multiple restrictions,
including adding the pool,
planting 75 trees, closing at 10
p.m. and installing a fence to
separate the property from an
adjacent residential neighbor-
hood.
But it was a proposed ordi-
nance establishing impact fees
to finance affordable housing
that had the family ready to
give up, Chaplin said.
"We just threw our hands
up and put [the land] up for
sale," she said.
The dream was revived
when the council voted down
the fees ordinance in May
2007, and Chaplin says "the
city has just been wonderful"
in its support ever since.
"This will be a place where


families can come and we're
going to cater to local people.
Someone can come and eat
and the kids can play,"
Chaplin said, adding the
design of the restaurant has
changed over the years.
"We decided to put in
cathedral tikis, similar to
Boondocks" on Ramrod Key,
she said. "Everything is open
except for the kitchen and
bathrooms."
Chaplin says the restaurant
will have a full-service bai
and offer fresh seafood along


with classic American cuisine.
She also said the family's
remaining Knights Key land
could potentially be used to
build employee housing.
"We'll probably employ 40
people and a lot have
approached us who already
live here. But we do have six
other lots we put in for [per-
mits] to build duplexes,"
Chaplin said. "I can hardly
believe it's actually going to
happen, but I can assure you it
will."

The arrests of three Miami-
area men for recklessly operat-
ing personal watercraft near
Key Largo Sunday reportedly
prompted both applause and
complaints from witnesses,
according to marine officers.
The three defendants -
Vilier Nogueira, 28; Yant
Garcia, 2.7; and Silvio Alvez, 21
- face misdemeanors count of
recklessly operating a vessel.
"They were doing circles
and using their watercraft to
spray each other," said Officer
Bobby Dube, information offi-
cer for the Florida Fish and
Wildlife Conservation
Commission. "They were riding
recklessly near a swim area
where women and children
were in the water."
Officer Wade Heffner made
the arrests at Tarpon Basin after
watching through binoculars.
The agency had received "sev-
eral calls" about the riders.
Personal watercraft are small
jet-powered watercraft, includ-
ing models like the Kawasaki
Jet Ski or Yamaha Wave
Runner.
"They were operating in a
willful and wanton manner
close to shore," Dube said. "If
one of them had fallen off their
vessel, it could have hit an
innocent bystander. It was for-
tunate nobody was killed or
injured."
A crowd at the subdivision
park area, on the bayside off
mile marker 101, was divided
on the arrests, Dube said.
"There were a lot of happy


people there who applauded,"
he said. "Some friends and fam-
ily members were not happy
and made a bit of a commo-
tion."
Heffner said in his report
that when the FWC patrol boat
approached, the three men
jumped off their watercraft and
tried to mingle with the crowd.
"It wasn't hard to find
them," Dube said. "They were
the wet ones wearing lifejack-
ets."
They were released after
booking at the Plantation Key
jail. The charge carries a
mandatory court appearance.

County," he said. "This is an
opportunity for us to address pol-
icy holder concerns and see
what, if anything, needs to be
addressed in the legislative ses-
sion [next spring] or in internal
policy."
Citizens representatives have
been preparing to discuss at least
one recent issue affecting large
numbers of Keys residents:
Windstorm insurance rates are
higher for those who have home-
owners or other policy lines
through the company, compared
with those only purchasing
windstorm coverage.
Kuczwanski said Citizens is
trying to refile its rates to lower
the cost to multi-peril holders,
meaning those who want cover-
age for such as things as fire and
theft. At the time Citizens low-
ered its wind-only rates, it was
not allowed to offer multi-peril
rates, he said.
Another issue near to some
Keys homeowners comes from a
new law that requires any home
worth $750,000 to have state-
approved hurricane shutters. In
Monroe County, 1,118 homes
insured by Citizens are worth


that much or more; 305 aren't
compliant, according to Citizens.
Of those, some may already
have appropriate shutters but
have not filed the appropriate


paper work. Any who do come
into compliance will receive a
reduced bill in the form of a
credit.

Scores come
in for science,

By SAM NISSEN

Local students fared better -
often much better than their
state counterparts on recent stan-
dardized tests for math, reading
and science.


The scores are welcome news
for a district that did not do as
well in writing scores released
last month, failing to pass or even
sometimes meet state averages.
The Florida Comprehensive
Assessment Test scores are
important to schools, as they are
part of a formula determining
state funding. Third-grade scores
are particularly important, as they
in large part determine whether a

student is promoted to the fourth
grade.
"I'm really pleased with the
scores, as we're ahead of the state
average for each of the grades for
each of the areas," said Randy
Acevedo, Monroe County School
District superintendent. Asked
why students fared so much bet-
ter in math, reading and science
than in FCAT writing scores he
said, "I was pondering that same
question and that is what we have
to figure out. Traditionally we lag
in writing scores, we need to fig-
ure out what we're lacking and
correct that. That's something
we're definitely working on."
Results were released Tuesday
for math and reading scores for
third through 10th grades, science
scores for fifth, eighth and 11th
grades and writing scores for
fourth, eighth and 10th grades.
District schools showed many


double-digit increases in the
number of students passing the
math test, gaining in all areas
except among 10th-graders,
whose scores remained about the
same as last year's. High school
students' science scores saw
smaller improvements than those
of younger students, with 5 per-
cent more passing this year com-
pared to 19 and 10 percent of ele-
mentary and middle school stu-
dents respectively. Reading gains
were more erratic, with most
within a few points of state aver-
ages.
In a press release -with the
compiled scores, the district
administration highlighted the
Big Pine Academy, where 100
percent of students passed the
math section of the test. Among
other notables, Glynn R. Archer
Elementary seeking to escape
federal scrutiny as part of a pro-


bationary period posted gains
in the number of students pass-
ing, but still lagged behind aver-
ages around the county.
Key West High School lagged
behind the other two high schools
in the Keys, except in science,
where Marathon High School
dipped below state averages for
the first time in at least a half-
decade. Key Largo, Plantation
and Sugarloaf schools continued
to outscore middle school stu-
dents from Horace O'Bryant and
Marathon, though the latter two
also showed improvement.
As of press time, district
School Board members said they
had not reviewed the large
spreadsheets and corresponding
summaries which were released
about 2 p.m. Tuesday. FCAT
scores are available at www

Council considers grouper rule


Season would
close 4 months,
Keys opposed
Keynoter Staff

A move that could end most
winter grouper fishing in the
Atlantic Ocean off the Florida


Keys reaches a federal fishery
management council at its
Thursday meeting in Orlando.
"I don't know yet how it's
going to go," Marathon commer-
cial fisherman Tony Iaorcci said
Tuesday from Orlando. "It's
going to be very controversial,
we know that."


larocci is a voting member of
the South Atlantic Fishery
Management Council that 'will
consider Amendment 16 to its
management plan for snapper
.and grouper.
The proposed rule that most
alarms Keys recreational and
commercial fishermen is a four-
month closed season, January
through April, on most types of
grouper.
More than 80 recreational,
charter and commercial fisher-
men turned out at a May hearing
in Key Largo, where public sen-
timent against the closure was
nearly unanimous.
Council staff forwarded to the
council the closed-season pro-
posal to protect the stock of gag
grouper, which biologists say is
significantly overfished.
While gag grouper are not
often caught in the Keys, the
closed season would extend to
other groper species, including
black and red grouper a prime
target of local bottom-fishing.
Another provision of the rule
would require all fishermen
using natural bait to use only
circle hooks when catching
snapper and grouper.
Several representatives from

Land Trust wants $455K from city


McPherson says
no money for
reimbursement
By KYLE TEAL
kteal@keynoter.com

The Bahama Conch
Community Land Trust is asking
the city of Key West for $455,724
in special property tax funds to
reimburse architect and develop-
er fees spanning as far back as
May 2000.
But Mayor Morgan McPherson,


Council wants
it to consider
running sewers
By RYAN MCCARTHY
rmccarthy@keynoter.com

The Florida Keys Aqueduct
Authority might be receptive to
the idea of managing
Marathon's sewer utility after
all.
"There's room to talk about
the details of the arrangement,"
Aqueduct Authority Executive
Director Jim Reynolds. "The
Aqueduct board will want to be
in the position to set the rates
and do what they need to do and
not be subservient to another
board; that's the main thing."
The Aqueduct Authority is
the designated sewer authority
for unincorporated Monroe
County except Key Largo,
which has its own sewer district.
Reynolds admits his utility's
business model has been to not
operate sewer systems it hasn't
designed or owns. But there are
agreements in place with the
county that allow the Aqueduct
Authority to work around that.
"They own them, but we
lease them for 99 years. They're
involved with the planning and
put them in the ground and lease
them, so they have some say and
control over where and when
things are built," he said. "When
it comes time to operate them,
we're on our own."
A similar arrangement will


a critic of the Land Trust, says the
nonprofit won't have his support,
especially in the city's tight budg-
et year.
The organization's bookkeep-
ing has been under recent scruti-
ny by city leaders, but Land Trust
leaders say documents showing
their tenants are out of compli-
ance with the group's require-
ments are old and no longer accu-
rate.
The Land Trust manages the
homes of many low-income resi-
dents in Key West's culturally


likely be required to make a deal
work with the city, Reynolds
said.
City Manager Clyde Burnett
said he's preparing a letter to the
Aqueduct Authority asking it to
respond to a request for propos-
als to operate the city's Little
Venice and possibly other sewer
treatment plants. The Aqueduct
Authority still owns and oper-
ates the Little Venice plant but
the city is slated to take owner-
ship Oct. 1.
Councilman Don Vasil sug-
gested at the May 27 City
Council meeting that the city
reach out to the Aqueduct
Authority.
"Whether they do it or not is
up to them, all we can do is
request they respond. They
might because they already have
operators for Little Venice and
they have staff in the position,"
Burnett said.
Bidders can choose between.
a one-year deal to operate the
Little Venice plant or a three-
year proposal to operate that one
and all future plants.
Reynolds said his board will
decide when the time comes
whether to respond to the city,
but the city's choice to break the
sewer system into seven smaller
areas could be a problem for his
board.
"There are issues with the
number of plants," he said.
"We've found they require a lot
of attention and are costly to
operate."


rich Bahama Village. Those
homeowners and renters say liv-
ing on the island would be impos-
sible without the Land Trust's
affordable rates. .
"First of all, we don't have the
money to give to them,"
McPherson said. "Everything
they've put their hands on has
been mismanaged. It's not only
not insufficient, it's at the point of
ridiculous."
The funding resolution asks
for the money in two separate
requests, one for $102,306 in
money spent to rehabilitate units
in Bahama Village and the other
for $353,418 in developer fees.
The financial exchange, if
approved by the City Commission
at its June 17 meeting, would be
paid through the city's tax-incre-
ment financing, a funding pot
comprising property taxes collect-
ed from blighted areas. .
It pays for four Bahama
Village police officers' salaries, as
well as infrastructure enhance-
ments in those areas. Bahama
Village's pot is about $1.2 million.
"In our opinion, the amounts
below would fall within the defi-
nition of an allowable use of
TIF," Land Trust auditor Bishop,


Rosasco & Co. wrote in a letter to
the Land Trust's board.
The Land Trust imposed
developers' fees of 7.5 percent -
$353,418 on rehabilitating 13
units in the community, which
totaled about $4.7 million in
development costs. Those proj-
ects ran through September 2006.
As far as the remaining expenses:
The auditors' letter said expendi-
tures prior to July 2001 -
$102,306 have not been reim-
bursed by the city.
"I promised a more coopera-
tive relationship between the city
and the BCCLT, and I'm just try-
ing to deliver on that promise,"
City Commissioner Clayton
Lopez said.
Lopez was unsure why the
Land Trust waited until now to


file for reimbursements from
some expenses dating back eight
years.
"I don't know," he said. "But I
know it was from funds that they
have been promised since 2001,
when Commissioner Carmen
Turner first implemented the
policing funds. The problem I
think we're going to run into:
Those funds have already been
spent in the policing program and
other things...."
"These are the normal fees that
developers charge as part of cov-
ering the cost of doing a develop-
ment," Land Trust Deputy
Director Wheeler Winstead said.
"These fees were previously
approved and arbitrarily pulled
off the table."

Suspect later

Key West churchgoers wor-
shipped inside" the Bethel
..., African Methodist Episcopal
Church in Bahama Village
Sunday morning when a stray
bullet from a nearby fracas ric-
ocheted off the door.
"It was a scary situation
because there could've been
people walking into the church
and the weapon was shot right
in that direction," Interim
Police Chief Donie Lee said.
"We found a fragment of the
bullet in the church door."
Monday morning, police
were looking for Oscar
"Dodo" Edwards, 23, who
allegedly fired the shot in the
direction of Rudolph Manuel,
ate 27.
Edwards turned himself in
Monday afternoon and is
charged with attempted mur-
der. He "basically admitted he
fired the gun," Lee said,
adding police are searching for
'rtificate the .45 caliber pistol Edwards
reportedly fired as Mariuel and
a female friend were walking
away after, they argued.
Edwards reportedly won't say
where the gun is.
Witnesses testified they saw.
ate him fire the weapon and police
found the .45 caliber casing in
the 1000 block of Thomas
Street. The bullet also struck a
day! nearby utility pole.
The conflict arose from an
argument Edwards and Manuel
5622 were having over a "he said,
she said" issue, according to a
officess police report. Manuel heard
the gunshot when he was about
200 feet away, saw gun smoke
Keys near Edwards and ran away.
A background check of
Edwards in Monroe County
NCUA shows he's been arrested 29
times from June 2004 through
Monday for various crimes
such as possession of marijua-
na and cocaine, and aggravat-
voked at any time. Member ed assault.

morning, in a community with
a lot of churches and a lot of
people out on the street,"
Detective Matt Haley said.
"Thankfully, nobody was
injured. The Key West Police
Department ... is very con-
cerned about more guns on the
street."
City spokeswoman Christie
Philips said police "don't get
many calls about shootings."
This year, there's been only
one other call to police claim-
ing shots were fired in Key
West; it was a false alarm.
Another caller reported air-
soft guns were fired.
That happened again
around 9:15 p.m. Monday,
when police were called to
reports of a gun in the 500
block of Olivia Street. When
the responding officer arrived,
he pulled his gun because he
didn't know it was an air-soft,
or BB-type gun, rather than a
real gun. The person with the
air-soft is a juvenile.
In 2007, seven unfounded
calls were made. Another
caller reported air-soft guns
were fired.
In May, a woman driving
near the George Allen apart-
ment complex was hit with an
air-soft pellet in the face.
Police found the boy who hit
her and confiscated his gun.
City Commissioner Clayton
Lopez, whose district includes
Bahama Village, said he is
working with city officials
researching state statutes
about regulations of retail
sales of air-soft guns to
minors.
"This time we had an actual
shooting, but what if someone
pulled out an air-soft gun and
it looked like an actual gun?"
Lopez said.
"Air-soft guns can be easily
recognized as real guns,"
Haley said. "And as officers,
we have to make a split deci-
sions. It's just very danger-
ous."
A community policing
meeting will be held at
Bahama Village's Douglass
Gym Nutrition Center, III
Olivia St. at 6 p.m. Thursday.

Rider crashes moped,
faces felony DUI count

A Marathon man who crashed
the moped he was riding Monday
night in Marathon has been
charged with felony drunk driving,
apparently because the injuries he
suffered were so severe.
The Florida Highway Patrol
says Raul Torna-Leon, 36, was
riding the 2003 Chinse-Qing
moped southbound on the inside
lane of U.S. 1 about 9:50 p.m.
Troopers say he lost control,
struck the center median near
74th Street, was tossed from the
moped and had to be taken to
Fishermen's Hospital with "deca-
pacitating injuries."

Car goes airborne,
two severely injured

Two men in a 1996 Saturn


fishtailed off the road on Geiger
Key Monday night, hit a concrete
barrier and flew through the air,
hitting a tree 16 feet off the
ground.
The car, driven by 51-year-old
Larry Votaw of Cudjoe Key,
landed upside down. Stock Island
Fire Rescue responded and both
Votaw and his passenger, 50-
year-old Henry Colvin of
Georgia, were taken by helicop-
ter to Ryder Trauma Center in
Miami with serious injuries.
The crash happened at 8:22
p.m. on Boca Chica Road. The
men were still in "very critical
condition" as of Tuesday morn-
ing, according to the Florida
Highway Patrol.

Free coffee
among incentives
for consumers
McClatchy Tribune

A Hollywood Chevron man-
ager greets customers with a
smile and often offers free coffee
to regulars as they come into the
gas station to pay for fuel.
And at a Shell station in
Plantation, customers save about
6 cents per gallon by paying


with cash instead of using credit
cards.
South Florida gas retailers in
high traffic areas are fighting for
customer loyalty as prices con-
tinue to rise beyond $4 per gal-
lon, putting the squeeze on con-
sumers and independently
owned gas stations alike.
Many are using promotions
to lure consumers inside, where
they may spend money in con-
venience stores, or giving cash
discounts for gas purchases.


"This is a serious stretch for
many of our members," said Pat
Moricca, president of the
Gasoline Retailers Association
of Florida.
In addition to rising fuel
costs, retailers face high credit
card fees, decreases in sales
from convenience stores -
where they make the bulk of
their money and added
expenses for such requirements
as the replacement of under-
ground storage tanks mandated

The local image of the Iron

the ownership of Austin
"A.J." Henely, who consid-
ered selling the business
before handing Magno the
reins. Henely started the
gym 12 years ago and ran
another gym in towfi for five
years prior.
The gym, not air condi-
tioned, is reminiscent of the
height of the first career of
now-Gov. Arnold
Schwarzenegger of California,
a famed body builder who
trained during the 1960s and,
'70s, Magno says. His picture
hangs in the gym. The old-
school style is rare, but
Magno says keeping muscles
warm between exercises
reduces the risk of injury.

Credit card fees eating into profits


INCENTIVES / From 15

by new state laws.
Last year, convenience stores
paid $7.6 billion in credit card
fees, according to the National
Association of Convenience
Stores, a trade association.
Every time the price of gas
jumps, so do the credit card fees.
More than 60 percent of the
country's 146,000 convenience
stores are independent opera-
tors. Fewer than 3 percent are
owned and operated by major
oil companies.
Most gas retailers cannot run
their businesses selling gasoline
alone because fuel sales account
for about 34 percent of their
profits. The rest comes from
sales of cigarettes, alcohol and
other products.
Analysts expect more rises in
gas prices, and industry analysts
said many independent retailers
will go out of business as a
result.
The issue has drawn the


attention of Congress. Federal
legislation introduced this .year,
HR 5546, or the Credit Card
Fair Fee Act, would create a sys-
tem in which merchants can
negotiate fees with credit card
companies.
Jeff Lenard, a spokesman for
the convenience stores associa-
tion, said credit card fees have a
negative effect on the industry.
The association, which repre-
sents convenience stores and
petroleum retailers, estimates
that 70 percent of all gasoline
purchases are paid with credit
cards.
"Now that regular gas is $4
per gallon in many places, con-
venience stores are paying 10
cents a gallon in credit card
fees," Lenard said.
At the busy intersection of
Sheridan Street and North State
Road 7 in Hollywood, three gas
stations one currently closed
because of construction com-
pete for motorists' attention.
Julio Clavijo, manager of
Sunoco, recently introduced a


car wash-and-wax service to
attract customers. He keeps
drinks, candy, cigarettes and
chips inside the small conven-
ience store. Still, sales have
dropped in recent weeks, he
said.
"We are very aggressive and
we keep an eye on the competi-
tion's prices," Clavijo said.
Across the street, Angela
Ramirez, manager of a Chevron,
has a sign in the store's window
advertising the latest promotion
- two bottles of Gatorade for
$3. Ramirez keeps the large con-
venience store and bathrooms
clean and provides full service
for senior citizens.
In Plantation, a Shell station
at Broward Boulevard and
University Drive began offering
a cash discount for gasoline last
week to discourage customers
from using credit cards.
"We are still taking credit
cards," said John Rudolph, the
station's owner. "But we are try-
ing to get consumers to use
cash."

What's Dad want? Gadgets


Ties? Cologne?
No way. Fun stuff
is the way to go.
McClatchy Tribune

With Father's Day coming on
Sunday, you may be struggling
to come up with an imaginative
gift. Well, forget the traditional
gifts and get a gadget. Your
father, or the father of your chil-
dren, will thank you.
What kind of gadget? Well,
you have a lot to choose from.
Here are 10 ideas, ranging in
price from $20 to $2,000.
TV-B-Gone, at
www.tvbgone.com
Seems like everywhere you
go these days, there's a TV blar-
ing often with no one watch-
ing it. That's where TV-B-Gone
comes in handy. As its name
suggests, TV-B-Gone is a small
remote control that will turn off
just about any television.
That TV that's endlessly
repeating infomercials in the
doctor's office? Zap! It's off.
The one that's making it so you
can't hear your partner at a
restaurant? Zap! It's gone.
Sure, Dad won't be able to
change channels with it or turn
up the volume. But for about $20
online, it still seems like a bar-
gain and a heck of a lot of
fun.
+ Make Magazine, at
www.makezine.com
OK, it's not a gadget. But it
can show Dad how to build lots
of them.
The quarterly publication is
targeted at do-it-yourself
builders and those who fanta-
size about being one. Each issue
is crammed with pictures of
homemade technology projects,
interviews with "makers" and
project ideas with detailed
instructions.
Recent projects have included
a way to configure your digital
camera so it takes infrared pic-
tures and a homemade taffy-
pulling machine.
The best part about the maga-
zine, which costs about $35 a
year, is that the projects can be a
great way for dads and kids to
bond.
TomTom One GPS device,
at www.tomtom.com


I FATHER'SDA


Photo courtesy McCLATCHY TRIBUNE
Mr. T is hardly a big star anymore, but for Dad, it would still be
cool if his GPS directions were given to him by Clubber Lang
himself.


For a basic GPS gadget, the
Tom Tom One is hard to beat,
especially at $145. The One does
all the standard GPS tricks: It
gives point-to-point directions,
displays two- and three-dimen-
sional route maps, and estimates
arrival times. As a fun feature,
Dad can download new voices to
the device so he can have Mr. T,
for example, giving him direc-
tions. And with an added anten-
na and service fee, the One will
give real-time traffic informa-
tion and help plot around jams.
+ Etymotic ER4 MicroPro
noise-isolating earphones, at
www.etymotic.com
The ear buds that come with
iPods and other digital music
devices simply don't cut it. If


there is any kind of background
noise like that on a train or an
airplane you have to crank up
the volume on the device to dan-
gerous levels to hear anything.
That's where noise-isolating
earphones come in. They block
out much of the ambient noise so
Dad will be able to hear his
music and little else.
Etymotic's ER4s have been
around for a while, but they're
still among the best on the mar-
ket, offering great, clear sound.
At $170 and up, they're not
cheap, but they're sure to make
your Dad's iPod that much more
valuable to him.
Nintendo Wii, at
us.wii.com
Some dads who like gaming


will doubtless prefer an Xbox
360 or a PlayStation 3. But for
everyone else particularly
older dads and fathers of young
kids the Wii is a good bet.
By focusing on fun game-
play, Nintendo has drawn in
loads of new fans, many of
whom never would have thought
of playing or owning a video
game machine before. Thanks to
that wide appeal, getting a Wii
for Dad could be an invitation
for more play time with him and
the kids.
The Wii is nominally priced
at about $250. But because of its
popularity, it can be hard to
come by, unless you shell out
extra for an often expensive bun-
dle of hardware and accessories.
Amazon Kindle, at
www.amazon.comlkindle
If the dad in your life is a
reader or a frequent traveler, he
might get a big kick out of the
Kindle. It's an e-book reader that
does much more than just- dis-
play digital tomes.
The Kindle has a built-in cel-
lular antenna that allows it to
connect to the Internet from
most big cities in the United
States and many other countries.
Not only can Dad buy and down-
load new books via that Internet
connection some 120,000 are
now available from Amazon -
he also can get the day's New
York Times and Wall Street
Journal, read dozens of blogs,
look up information on
Wikipedia and view Word docu-
ments.
You could buy a lot of books
for the $399 Amazon charges for
the Kindle. But the price
includes lifetime Internet access
for the device. And not only is
the Kindle thinner and lighter
than many paperbacks, it's also a
lot more exciting.
+ Sony Bravia XBR 40-inch
LCD TV, at
www.SonyStyle.com
At $2,000 and up, this is
probably well beyond what you
wanted or can afford to
spend this Father's Day. And a
top-of-the-line Sony 1080p LCD
TV is probably a bit of overkill,
considering you can get a decent
high-definition TV in the same
size for about half that price.
But, hey, a dad can dream,
right?

Juneteenth is the oldest
known celebration of the end of
slavery. While President Lincoln
signed the Emancipation
Proclamation Jan. 1, 1863, the
word did not reach parts of Texas
and other southern states until
June 19, 1865. Hence Juneteenth
is celebrated internationally as
an important date in black histo-

It's everything
you need to
discover reef


Warm water and a warm
welcome await water enthusi-
asts at Island Sun Splash '08,
which starts today and runs
through Saturday at venues
throughout Islamorada and
Key Largo.
Organized by the Upper
Keys Association of Dive and
Snorkel Operators, the event
includes activities for every-
one, from expert divers to fam-
ilies visiting the reef for the
first time.
"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 organizers.
Discover Scuba diving
classes are to be offered so vis-
itors can get an introductory
taste of the sport. Snorkeling
lessons are set to make sight-
seeing from the water's surface
a fun and safe experience.
Underwater photography
and video seminars are to be
accompanied by photo and
video contests, with separate
divisions for kids and adults. A
land and sea photo scavenger
hunt also is planned, during


which contestants must seek
out and photograph local land-
marks and beautiful reef fish to
earn points and win prizes.
Every kid age 15 and younger
that participates in the junior
division wins a prize.
Kids also can enter the
Junior Olympics, a set of in-
pool games that focus on fun,
sportsmanship and competi-
tion.
The Reef Environmental
Education Foundation is to
conduct its popular fish identi-
fication classes so no introduc-
tions will be necessary when
snorkelers and divers come
nose to snout with local under-
water inhabitants.
Shallow reefs and wrecks
await newly certified and less-
experienced 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.
Other scheduled events
include a visit to the Florida
Keys History of Diving
Museum in Islamorada, which
houses an unparalleled collec-
tion of historic dive gear.
Sally Bauer, co-founder of
the museum, is to offer a pri-
vate reception and seminar on


the history of diving and show
how recreational diving actual-
ly got its start in the waters of
Islamorada.
Modern treasure hunters
Carl Fisrner and Mace are to
conduct a seminar on the 1733
Spanish fleet that was forced
onto Keys reefs by a powerful
storm. Fismer and Mace plan
to lead tours to local wreck
sites after each session.
Rounding out events are
kayaking trips and introductory
sailing lessons at Founders
Park in Islamorada, a fishing
clinic, dinner parties and a
family-style barbecue and
awards celebration.
Admission wristbands to
Island Sun Splash cost $20 per
adult and $10 per youngster
age 10 to 14. Children under 10
are admitted without charge.
The wristbands allow
entrance to all seminars, the
Try Scuba pool sessions and 10
percent discounts on dive trips,
dive gear, apparel, meals at
participating restaurants and
merchandise at participating
retailers.
A 25 percent discount is to
be offered on refresher courses
and peak-performance buoyan-
cy clinics. For the latest sched-
ules and list of participants,

All-Keys tourney debuts


BY RYAN MCCARTHY
rmc.arthy@keynoter.com


Rising expenses and a lack of
participants have officially
forced Marathon to opt out of
this year's Little League World
Series tournament, but local
league President Wendy Bonilla
is planning the next best thing.
So far, major league teams
(11- and 12-year-olds) from


Little Leaguers throughout the Keys
play this Saturday in Marathon


Upper Keys, Big Pine and
Marathon leagues have all com-
mitted to the new All-Keys
Tournament that will extend the
kids' season and give them a
chance to play for Monroe
County bragging rights.


Key West, which reverted
back to Little Conch Baseball
this year after participating in
last year's Little League World
Series Tournament, has also
been invited to play in the tour-
nament, scheduled for Saturday
at the Marathon Community
Park, mile marker 49.

Friends rally for Carter


Beloved coach,
umpire injured
in bike crash
By KEVIN WADLOW
Senior Staff Writer
kwadlow@keynoter.com

So no one ever roots for
the umpire? They don't know
Willie Carter Sr.
Hundreds of players, par-
ents and friends turned out
Sunday for a benefit to help
Carter, a tireless Upper Keys


Athletic Association volun-
teer for 16 years.
Carter was seriously
injured in an April 28 acci-
dent while riding his motor-
cycle.
Despite his need for a
neck brace and walker,
Carter smiled ear to ear
while greeting arrivals to the
spaghetti dinner staged at the
Caribbean Club's bayside
pavilion.
"The community has
bonded together to look out


for me through this ordeal,"
said Carter, a longtime
UKAA sports official and
team coach. "It's thrilling to
see. I want to send my thanks
and love out to each and
every one of them."
Amy Stoky, one of the
benefit organizers, said the
community response was
overwhelming. "Willie's
been so involved and helped
our kids so much over the
years," she said.
"Willie has done an awful

"Our season is short, so this is
something that will let them go
and play a little bit longer,"
Bonilla said. "Next year we'll do
majors and minors [9- and 10-
year-olds] if I have tinm,
because a week is not enough
time to find umpires and every-
thing."
Bonilla said the busy sum-
mertime schedule conflicted

lot for us over the years, and
he's great with the kids,"
UKAA board member
Marilyn Beyer said. "We
rely on Willie and volun-
teers like him to work after
hours to help our kids play
sports."
"It gets harder every day
to find people willing and
able to make that kind of
commitment, but Willie has
always been very depend-
able and there for us,"
Beyer said.
Carter is among the most
active UKAA game offi-
cials, calling balls and
strikes in Little League
baseball and whistling fouls
for youth-basketball games.
He also volunteers as a
coach.
A team parent who wants
to remain anonymous
offered to help -Carter find
the best doctors, and
pledged to match donations
from Sunday's benefit.
"It's somebody who's
just really impressed by the
way Willie works with the
kids," Beyer said.
"I enjoy doing it for the
kids," said Carter, a lifetime
Keys resident who graduat-
ed from Marathon High
School. "They're wonder-
ful. It's a joy for me to teach
them something about
sports."
After a Little League
game, Carter had stopped at
the Tavernier Dairy Queen
with the players.. On his
motorcycle, he was leaving
the parking lot when a car
reportedly pulled out in
front of him.
The crash left Carter with
injuries to his neck, back,
shoulder, ankle and knee.
He now attends three physi-
cal-therapy sessions each
week.
He said he has been
assured that his job deliver-
ing construction materials
for Cemex will be waiting
for him when he recovers
enough to return to work.

with many kids' vacation plans,
leaving a shortage of available
players. The expense was also a
concern for many parents, she
said.
"It does get costly to travel
all the way up to Doral all the
time. Not that we don't want to
do that, but I'm going to explain
to the parents at the beginning of


the season; these kids have the
opportunity to go, we have to
know who can," Bonilla said.
The All-Keys Tournament
will serve as a warm-up to the
Little League World Series tour-
nament for the Upper Keys
team, which will be the lone
Keys representative this year.
Bonilla said Marathon and
Big Pine will play the first game
of the one-day, round-robin style
tournament at 9 a.m. Saturday.

Keys unite for national games


BY RYAN MCCARTHY
rmccarthy@keynoter.com .


Marathon will send two
under-14 soccer teams to
Hawaii next month to compete
in the 2008 American Youth
Soccer Organization National
Games, including a boys squad
that took third place overall in
Chicago's 2006 games.
Marathon Regional
Commissioner Chris Bull said
five players from that under-12
team will make the trip to
Hawaii, playing on a team
known as Keys United. It com-
prises players from up and
down Monroe County, chosen
via tryouts held in October.
"Marathon might have got-
ten the bid to go to the National
Games, but the makeup of the
team is 'Keys united,'" Bull
said. The team features five
players from Key West, one
from Big Pine, four from
Marathon and three from the
Upper Keys.
Marathon High School assis-
tant girls varsity coach Lynn
Landry will lead an under-14
girls team to Hawaii and the
Upper Keys will field an under-
16 girls team featuring eight
players from teams that won the
tournament in 2004 and 2006.
The 24 teams from each age
group are broken down into
four six-team pools and over
three days each team will play
five games. The top two teams
in each division will advance to
the quarterfinals and then either
the semifinals and finals, or the
consolation bracket.













MARATHON PUBLIC
SHOPPING CENTER

BAMBOO CAY

for FATHER'S DAY!


Bull said fielding the teams
this time around has been diffi-
cult, with costs breaking down
to $3,000 per player. The teams
have been doing fundraisers for
months including carwashes,
bagging groceries, selling raffle
tickets and hosting dinners.
"Lots of kids' [families]
can't write the check. Coming
up with that amount of cash is
huge, but it's more palatable
when you can spread it out over
six months," Bull said, adding
more fundraisers are in the
works.
The teams will arrive in
Honolulu July 5 and take part in


opening ceremonies and a one-
day Soccer Fest, where players
from different teams play
together in scrimmages that
encourage camaraderie amongst
the kids.
"It creates more sportsman-
ship during the games in the
tournament because every time
you go and play a match you
know someone from the other
team," Bull said.
The kids exchange gifts after
each game, including custom-
made pins symbolizing each
team's home area.
"All throughout the week
they trade with people and
make connections there," he
said.

Offshore
Dolphin catches have
been prert, consistent, w ith
plenry of schoohe-_,ize fish

There are some big fish in

as in past seasons.
For the most part. dolphin
are not being caught in the

The yellow tail snapper
are still going strong along

catches.
Fishing the structures
such as wrecks and the rocky

non Big mangro\e snapper
along ith \ello\ tails and

Still, there haxe been
some very good snapper and

Adler hardly 'Clueless'


Keys captain
helps team win
Captain's Cup

The word from Key Largo to
Key West is dolphin.
Schoolies to slammers,
they're out there in force and
summertime. This is the kick in
the keister the fishing fleet needs
after a slightly below-average
sailfish bite and what feels like
only half a season of tarpon due
to their late arrival.
The dolphin, or mahi-mahi, as
most of the world knows them,
was probably best nicknamed by
Lower Keys Capt. Jim Sharpe of
Summerland Key in his book
"Dolphin: The Perfect Game
Fish." They are truly that per-
fect.
Dolphin have it all they
leap and jump like tarpon, are
strong fighters like tuna, have the
vibrant colors of a lit-up white
marlin and the ferociousness of a
blacktip shark, and unlike all
aforementioned fish, will usually
always eat bait. Plus, they make
for outstanding table fare.
Their all-around appeal is the
reason for so many unique tour-
naments peppered throughout the
Keys each summer.
One of my favorites just
wrapped up in Islamorada. The
Captain's Cup Dolphin Tour-
nament sponsored by the
Islamorada Fishing Club fielded
24 teams, all searching for the
largest three fish in aggregate
weight in hopes of taking home
the $25,000 2rand prize. Second


a it place gets
nada (actu-
ally, second
e-, t and third
receive a
_pm g ic le e
r Adier painting
S from Pasta
"I- T Pantaleo, an
Islamorada
artist).
As is
norm with
this tourna-
Cal Sutphin ment and
its winter-
time sister competition, the
Captain's Cup Sailfish
Tournament, the heavy hitters
showed up. One reigned
supreme, Capt. Alex Adler fish-
ing on the private boat Clueless.
Whether Adler is fishing on his
charterboat the Kalex out of Bud
'n Mary's Marina in Islamorada or
a private boat, he is equal opportu-.
nity when it comes to fishing -
equally adept at catching dolphin
or catching billfish.
Adler has fished the world
over as a second-generation Keys
fisherman. I've covered him as
he competed in the Billfish X-
Treme Release League, the
World Sailfish Tournament in
Key West and countless sailfish
and dolphin tournaments, where
he places in the top three more
often than most other captains.
Team owner and winning
angler Don Barnes from Troy,
Mich., fishing on his 58-foot
Jarrett Bay Clueless, talks about
meeting Adler some six years ago.
"When we moved down from
Michigan, the name of my boat


was Clueless because I was just
that when it came to saltwater
fishing. I would walk down to the
docks of Bud 'n Mary's and Alex
was always the guy that would
help us out, give us advice, tell us
what to do and even give us some
bait. Not everyone was as helpful
as Alex was to me."
Team Clueless' three dolphin
to take the Captain's Cup were
19.1, 30.9 and 40.5 pounds,
which topped the field at 90.5,
pounds besting second place by
19.4 pounds.
Team Clueless consisted of
Adler, Barnes, Lee Hitow of
Kalamazoo, Mich., Capt. Bart
Sherwood, mates Terry Crisp and
Dave Jones, and John Pflug.
Bames also caught the largest fish
of the tournament, 40.5 pounds.
The second-place team with
71.1 pounds of dolphin was the
Nuff Said with Capt. Scott Stokey
and mate Cecil Everett. Anglers
Bobby Everett of Inverness and
Richard LeMaire of Miami land-
ed fish weighing 17, 22.2 and
31.9 pounds.
The rest of the field of the
Captain's Cup probably won't
want to hear this, but Team
Clueless, just prior to the Cup,
was fishing in Cat Cay in the
Bahamas for bluefin tuna, but the
conditions weren't right so they
decided to head back to the Keys
for the competition.
Within 24 hours of their
Captain's Cup win, the team was
back in Cat Cay having just land-
ed a 750-pound-plus bluefin tuna.
One night, $25,000. The next
day, a 750-pound bluefin tuna.
Ain't life grand?

Treat dad to a weekend on the water


Father's Day
arrives Sunday
Father's Day is Sunday
approaching and everyone is try-
ing to get dad to do something on
his day.
There are so many fishing
tournaments and a collection of
other events (my favorite: Stores
having Father's Day events; I'm
sure going to a mall tops his list.
Now, if'we were talking a local
hardware store or our favorite
pub, well, that's a horse of a dif--
ferent color).
For many dads, fishing is one
of their favorite things to do so a
tournament sounds like a good
idea. There are dolphin events
every week this time of year, but
for dad to win something on his
day is extra special and even
more so if his family is involved.
If that fits in your situation,
this weekend you have options all


Dave Navarro


throughout
the Keys.
Check your
local tackle
store for
information
in your
area.
I have a
few tips for
your trip
offshore
even if
you're not
involved in
a fishing


First, fresh ballyhoo have
started to be scarce. They have
been available at times but it's
been day to day for good ones.
You may want to get some while
they are fresh, rig them, salt them
good and pack them in the freez-
er if you're not going to use them
very soon. These will be much
better than trying to rig those that


have already been frozen; they
don't hold up nearly as well.
If fresh baits aren't available,
don't fret. Lures have been quite
productive for many anglers all
year. Me? I haven't trolled bally-
hoo offshore in more than 14
years. I've used Billy Baits
exclusively and caught many
more fish than I did with baits.
I don't even take ballyhoo on
the boat for cut bait. I use the
belly meat from previous dol-
phin, salted frozen pinfish or
pilchards and, my favorite, live
pinfish. I like these because there
is hardly a fish that swims that
won't hit live bait, even those
that won't hit anything else. It's
like they take offense to that little
fish swimming in their proximi-
ty. Live pilchards work just, too,
except they are much harder to
catch and keep alive. Pinfish are
known as the Timex of baitfish.
This is also a good thing to
have when you find that obstruc-


tion, such as board, pallet or even
a large weed patch, floating
around.
Hook a live pinfish on a spin-
ner with a wire leader and toss
him in. He doesn't know that he's
in very deep water; all he knows
is that he wants to get to the bot-
tom. Give him some time to head
down with the bail open and
watch for it to start whipping off.
If that happens, pick it up, lock it
up and have your way.
When this gets a hit, it is usu-
ally a wahoo or large dolphin that
wasn't attracted to the surface.
This has worked for more times
than not.
Another thing to remember is
that when you hook a big fish
and you're fighting it toward the
boat, you may see another one
traveling right alongside of it. If
you wait until you get the one on
to the boat or even boat the fish
prior to attempting to hook the
other fish, odds are it won't bite.


I've of found that if you shoot
a bait to it while the hooked fisli-
is still at least 20 feet from the
boat, that following fish won't
hesitate to nail the bait presented.
This may cause a bit more confu-
sion but the excitement and chal-
lenge will more than make up for
it.
Another little tip: Use a good-'
quality circle hook for the second
fish and your odds of losing it are
greatly reduced. Then you can
concentrate on the original fish,
getting it in the boat before hav-
ing to mess with the second fish
too much (now, if the second fish
is darn bigger than the first, I
would say the heck with the little
guy and work the big one for
bragging rights, if nothing else).
The last thing ,is that offshore
fishing of late has not been red
hot for a while; it's been day to
day. This is the overall picture'
