Competing copters
mean sometimes,
patients must wait
By KYLE TEAL
kteal@keynoter.com

When it comes to transport-
ing a patient to mainland hospi-
tals in the most efficient manner
possible, a decision lies with the
physician: LifeNet or
TraumaStar.
The TraumaStar helicopter is
based in Marathon and managed
by the Monroe County Sheriff's
Office and Monroe County Fire
Rescue.
LifeNet is a subsidiary of a
private company, Air Methods,
and has contracts with Lower
Keys Medical Center on Stock
Island, Fishermen's Hospital in
Marathon and the medical cen-
ter at Ocean Reef. The LifeNet
helicopters are at Tamiami and
Lower Keys Medical.
While some appreciate
LifeNet's helicopters, others say
hospital staff favors that chop-
per and resists calling on the
TraumaStar when it's readily
available because of the hospi-
tal's contract with LifeNet.
Larry Keys, a contractor and
Cudjoe Key resident, had a near-
heart attack in September.
"My right coronary artery
was 100 percent blocked," Keys
said. "I had huge, massive chest
pains. For some reason, when I
went over to [Lower Keys
Medical], they sent for that
[LifeNet] helicopter to come
down instead of using"
TraumaStar.

EPA softens proposed rule


'Best practices'
would replace
tougher regs
By KEVIN WADLOW
Senior Staff Writer
kwadlow@keynoter.com

Even kayakers could find
themselves needing a proposed
federal permit regulating boat-
ing discharges, the
Environmental Protection
Agency says.
On the positive side, a vessel
discharge permit for a kayak or
other motorless vessel might
cost only 29 cents to $2.29,
according to an EPA fact sheet
released this week.
Owners of commercial fish-
ing boats, however, could be
charged up to $1,598 the.
estimated top annual fee for a
non-recreational boat permit.
"That's bad but not the worst
of it," said Bob Jones, executive
director of the Southeastern
Fisheries Association, a com-
mercial-fishing organization.
"Any kind of violation could
lead to fines up to $32,500,"
Jones said. "Once you put this
kind of thing in government
hands, the bureaucracy takes
over and who knows what
they're going to do."
At noon July 2, the EPA will
conduct a webcast to outline its
vessel discharge proposals.
A bill in Congress, the Clean
Boating Act, would extend a


35-year exemption that relieves
recreational and commercial
boaters of concerns they could
be fined for discharging routine
deck runoff, bilge water or
graywater.
That exemption ends Sept.
30 unless the Clean Boating Act
passes. Summer and holiday
breaks in the congressional cal-
endar don't allow much time for
that to occur.
"We hope we have done our
work well enough that Congress
will see fit to make sure this
passes," Jones said.
A 2006 lawsuit prompted by
concerns over exotic species
being carried in the bilge water
of ocean-going freighters
resulted in a federal court ruling
that routine discharges' should
be regulated.
"Because of ballast tanks
emptying in San Franciso Bay,
they're going after lobster boats
in Key West," Jones said. "It's
crazy."
The EPA this week said the
agency proposes to allow all
recreational boats under 79 feet
long to be covered by a recre-
ational general permit.
Recreational vessels often
are stored out of the water, may
be gassed up away from the
water and "generate smaller
volumes of effluent," according
to the EPA.
Requirements of the recre-
ational permit, as outlined in the
draft plan, would have the boat


owner agree to follow "the best
management practices" to limit
sources of pollution.
That would include not using
boat wash-down soap with tox-
ins or phosphates, being careful
not to spill fuel at gas docks,
and responding quickly to any
spill.
"One quart of oil can cause
an oil slick two acres in size,"
agency documents note.
Permit costs for recreational
motorboats could run from
$8.79 to $26.99 annually,
depending on how much the
permitting system costs to oper-
ate. Costs to run it have been
estimated at $88 million annu-
ally.
Information released this
week indicates most charter
boats and sailboats for hire
would be classified as recre-
ational boats for permitting pur-
poses.
Commercial fishing boats
would be considered under
commercial rules, which have
more stringent and costly pro-
posed rules. About 44,000 boats
would be affected, the EPA esti-
mates.
The National Marine
Manufacturers Association says
the EPA plan "unnecessarily
creates a cumbersome, complex
and confusing permitting
scheme for recreational
boaters."

proposals or the webcast, go to

LifeNet wants all Keys


TRAUMA / From 1

Keys said the Stock Island
LifeNet helicopter wasn't read-
ily available, so he recalls wait-
ing about an hour for one to
travel from Tamiami, which he
says wouldn't have happened if
TraumaStar was called.
LifeNet charged Keys
$18,979.02 for the ride -
$8,979.02 as a base rate, or
"lift-off fee," and $10,000 for
the mileage. Keys says his
insurance covered $10,000.
A more recent invoice in
May from LifeNet shows the
company charged a $10,088
base rate and about $95.80 per
mile traveled transporting a
patient.
According to Sheriff's
Office Chief Administrative
Officer Mike Rice, for Keys'
situation, it would've taken the
TraumaStar 15 to 17 minutes to
come down from Marathon.
A hypothetical invoice sent
to Keys shows he would've
been charged $13,620 had he
rode TraumaStar, Rice said.
"Most of the Lower Keys bills
run about $12,000 to $13,500."
TraumaStar's lift-off fee is
$5,500. -
TraumaStar is funded
through county property taxes
and patient payments.
LifeNet racks up about $1.4
million to $1.6 million a year in
operating costs for its twin-
engine Eurocopter EC 135, said
Randy Layman, a company rep-
resentative.
While LifeNet charges
patients, it also works out pay-
ment plans for people low on
funds and work with people
who simply can't pay, Layman
said:
"We'll go ahead and work


with insurance companies and
exhaust those options,"
Layman said. "When there is no
way to pay, we write off the
bill."
Layman says he's aware of'
the "debate and battle" between
the two services, but he wants
the County Commission to
"truly evaluate the cost of doing
business. We would love to sit
down with the county and dis-
cuss providing transport to all
of Monroe County with no
cost."
Lower Keys Medical Center
doesn't pay anything for
LifeNet services and staff has
nothing but good things to say
about the company.
"They have been just phe-
nomenal working with us," said
Nikki Will, Lower Keys' chief
executive officer.
Ralph Hagans is also a sup-
porter.
James Dumas attacked his
son, Jacob Freeman, with a
machete June 3. Freeman, 29,
was losing blood quickly and
was transported via LifeNet to
Ryder Trauma Center in Miami.
"I don't have any complaints
at all with them," Hagans said
of LifeNet. "They saved my
boy's life and got him up there
in a timely manner."
Staff decides the urgency of
the injury.
Last year, LifeNet transport-
ed 292 patients, Will said. Rice
reported that TraumaStar flew
120 missions from October
2007 to the end of May 2008.
The TraumaStar helicopter
cost the county $3.7 million to
acquire. According to the
Sheriff's Office, its annual
budget is about $2.26 million
According to Rice,
TraumaStar's expected revenue
for the year is $590,838.

delay on Key Largo.
Steps have been taken to avoid
a repeat at the upcoming July 4

ments," said Abby Kelley, spokes-

fic flow to be better this time,"
Kelley said.
Contractors made a special
effort to partially open the new
Jewfish Creek Bridge in time for
Memorial Day weekend in a bid
to help alleviate post-holiday
traffic problems.
While opening the new bridge
avoided drawbridge delays, the
sheer volume of traffic heading
out of the Keys May 26 caused a
chokepoint near mile marker 106
where U.S. l's two northbound
lanes merge into one.
The road was open but a tem-
porary traffic pattern created for
use during construction apparent-
ly slowed drivers as they attempt-
ed to merge.
Barrels used to funnel traffic
onto the temporary lanes have
been removed, Kelley said. Lanes
have been widened and changes
were made to help motorists
access the alternate route up Card
Sound Road.
Staff from the construction
engineers will be on site through
the July 4 weekend, ready to
make changes if the situation
demands, she said.
"Traditionally, Memorial Day
weekend traffic is heaviest of the
entire year," said Deputy Becky
Herrin, spokeswoman for the
Monroe County Sheriff's Office.
"We are aware of the situation
but there have been backups there
before," Herrin said. "We try to
keep traffic moving but when
there are just too many cars,
there's very little we can do to


mitigate it."
Heavy traffic also causes
slowdowns in areas like
Islamorada, where construction is
not a factor, she said.
"It's my understanding that
the way they had traffic routed
through there because of the con-
struction caused a lot of the back-
up," said Lt. David Folsom of the
Florida Highway Patrol. "If
they've taken steps to change
that, 1 don't think we'll see that
kind of backup on July 4."
State troopers have noticed an
apparent.increase in weekend traf-
fic since the new Jewfish Creek
Bridge opened, Folsom said.
"I guess it's kind of a double-
edged sword," he said. "It makes
travel easier but people are
becoming aware that it's easier."
Folsom said, "We'll be out
there [over the Fourth of July hol-
iday] responding to accidents and
doing our best to keep the roads
clear."
From her office at the Florida
Keys Visitor Center at mile mark-
er 106, Key Largo Chamber of
Commerce President Jackie
Harder said recent changes to
U.S. 1 should help avoid some of
the Memorial Day problems.
Hoteliers concerned about the
Keys getting a bad reputation for
post-holiday traffic should con-
sider offering guests a bargain
rate to stay one more, she sug-
gested.
"That way everybody would-
n't be trying to get out at the same
time," she said.

Gator Air still trying to fly


Troubled air
carrier now
not paying bills
By RYAN McCARTHY
rmccarthy@keynoter.com

Gator Air doesn't appear to
be letting a cease-and-desist let-
ter from Monroe County, an out-
standing $5,700 fuel bill to
Cristal Clear Aviation and a
Federal Aviation Administration"
investigation stand in the way of
attempting to provide air service
to the Keys.
The startup venture's Web
site, www.flygatorair.com,
has been up and running for a
month since being shut down
shortly after Gator Air began fly-
ing to the Keys from Fort
Lauderdale March 7. The Web
site offers flights to Marathon-
for $69 per person and Key West
for $129 per person, as well as
Fantasy Fest tour packages for
$399 each.
However, Monroe County
Airports Director Peter Horton
said, "I have not seen them fly-
ing out of Key West for months
and they really didn't start much
service in Key West."
Gator Air has repeatedly
stranded passengers in Marathon
who were waiting for flights to
Fort Lauderdale to get connect-
ing flights, forcing them to either
purchase new tickets or rent cars
to drive to Fort Lauderdale.
Passengers have also accused
the company of not giving
refunds on cancelled flights.
On May 14, Assistant County


Attorney Pedro Mercado sent
Gator Air President Dave Brown
a letter saying the carrier was
banned from operating out of the
commercial terminal at Florida
Keys Marathon Airport. The let-
ter cited extreme efficiency and
safety concerns, as well as the
FAA investigation into Gator
Air's operation.
FAA spokeswoman Kathleen
Bergen told the Keynoter that
investigation is still pending and
Marathon Airport Manager
Reggie Paros said he's had no
correspondence with Brown in
at least a month.
"The last contact that we had
with Mr. Brown was probably
some e-mails between his office
and mine about returning keys to
the terminal. He did in an earlier
e-mail mention something about
a meeting or press conference
that he wanted to have down
here to explain the facts, but I've
heard nothing about is since that
time," Paros said. Brown didn't
return a call for comment.
"They can land at the airport,
we can't bar them from that,"
Horton said. "But if they're
going to get any relationship to
handle passengers, to purchase
fuel, to have a base of operation,
they'll need to do that with a"
fixed base operator, which sup-
plies fuel and a place to enplane
and deplane.
Paros said Brown began
using the two fixed base opera-
tors at the Marathon airport,
Cristal Clear Aviation and the
Marathon Jet Center, to handle
its flights. Fixed base operators

Cristal Clear Aviation
General Manager Bob
Ciszewski said Gator Air owes
the company $5,700 for, fuel
costs incurred when a credit card
Brown presented was rejected.
"I figured I'd let him have a'
week. After a week when it built
up, I had to put a stop to it
because nobody was paying any-
thing. If he shows up here I'm
seizing the airplane," Ciszewski
said, adding Brown claimed
Aztec Airways was responsible
for the bill and not him. Gator
Air subcontracted with Aztec to
perform flights.
"I cannot be responsible for
[other's] debts, I have enough of
my own. I am responsible for the
ground handling, [etc.], just not
the 'fuel and aircraft' expenses,"
Brown wrote in response to an e-
mail from Ciszewski requesting
payment.
Marathon Jet Center Line
Manager Mitch Conover said the
company would service' Gator
Air, but only if it paid for ground
handling up front.

EPA trys logic in

tweaking boat rule

. The federal government appears to have retreated from a
proposed rule that would have mandated recreational boaters
obtain discharge permits.
As detailed in a March Keynoter report, the Environmental
Protection Agency interpreted measures of the Clean Water
Act to apply to all vessels, regardless of size.
If enforced as first proposed, recreational boaters would
have been required to pay for permits and go through a long
process just to legally wash off their boats.
Actually, the EPA didn't initially set.out to stumble down
this path. It was legitimately reacting to the proliferation of
exotic species introduced when bilge water was pumped
overboard in U.S. waters by ships carrying goods to our
shores.
The most famous unwanted hitchhiker to come via this
route is the Zebra snail, a European species inadvertently
introduced into the Great Lakes around 1988.
With no known predators and ideal conditions to reproduce,
the Zebra snail has now become a costly nuisance, clogging
water intake systems, fouling ships and other structures and
crowding out native species of marine organisms.
In Congress, U.S. Sen. Bill Nelson (D-Fla.) introduced a
bill earlier this year to exclude recreational boaters and
anglers from the federal and state permitting requirements.
Now, it appears cooler heads have persuaded the EPA to
ease off the mandate for all vessels (though boating permits
will still be required) while adding an educational proponent
to reach recreational boat owners and fishermen.
This news, coupled with word that a federal appeals court
has overruled a lower court and given fishermen the right to
sue the government over mandating satellite tracking devices
on all vessels in Gulf waters, gives Keys fishermen a bit of
good news this week.
And given the latest prices for diesel fuel and the pressures
on these small businesses to stay afloat, we'll gladly take any
bit of good news we can get right about now.

Happy motoring, Joemama

A little bit of Keys history will soon pass from the scene.
Mammajoe's Cycles & Stuff is closing its doors. The
Marathon institution was a well-known way station midway
down the island chain, especially during Bike Week.
Owners Joe "Joemama" Rickard and his wife, M.J., will be
leaving the Keys and moving to Galax, Va., where Joe prom-
ises to refocus on his musical career.
When you read about Keys characters who make this place
special, Joe was one of them. He'll be missed.

Evacuation rate from Key Largo is sufficient


EDITOR:
Despite the unanimous objections of public
speakers at a March 12 Key Largo library
presentation, the Floiida Department of
Transportation is planning to add a 10-foot-
wide paved shoulder on the northbound side
of U.S. 1 through Key Largo as part of an
otherwise appropriate and necessary road
resurfacing. However, absence of the 10-foot
shoulder would not restrict hurricane evacua-
tion nor limit growth potential, and the matter
need not be divisive. In Key Largo, the addi-
tional capacity needed to safely evacuate the
Keys already exists.
DOT claims additional traffic capacity in
the form of a shoulder wide enough to func-
tion as a lane is needed through Key Largo to
provide for hurricane-evacuation contingen-
cies based on recommendations in the 2001
Miller Report commissioned by DOT. That
claim is based on an incorrect assumption.
The Miller Report estimates evacuation
clearance times using a sophisticated spread-
sheet incorporating many factors, including
conservative estimates of how many vehicles
can evacuate per hour.
For segments of U.S. 1 that have traffic
entering from side streets but don't have traf-
fic signals, the Miller Report assigned each
lane a conservative value of 1,350 vehicles
per hour, compared to the maximum value of
1,900 vehicles per hour.
During evacuations, traffic passes unim-
peded through signalized intersections
because the lights are set to the yellow flash-
ing mode. The Miller Report incorrectly
assumes red lights would periodically stop
traffic. For segments of the evacuation route
where there are traffic lights, each lane was
erroneously assigned a value of 900 vehicles
per hour.
Thus, each lane between mile markers 74
and 90 was assigned a value of 1,350 vehicles
per hour. Each lane between mile markers 90


and 106, where DOT proposes to pave the
wide shoulder, was assigned a value of only
900 vehicles per hour.
Correcting for that error means that the
two lanes of the existing U.S. 1 through Key
Largo equal three lanes with the red-light
error (two times 1,350 equals three times 900
- 2,700).
Thus, the full hurricane-evacuation benefit
of the proposed 10-foot shoulder already
exists.
For these reasons as well as the unan-
swered safety concerns of a shoulder that is
by design wide enough to drive on, and the
affront to our community vision that the addi-
tional pavement represents, many in the Key
Largo area have asked DOT to resurface U.S.
1 with the same 4-foot shoulder on the north-
bound side that they plan for the southbound
side, saving $2 million. Everyone would win
except the asphalt salesmen.

Cinque was a great landlord


EDITOR:
A few years ago, I rented a trailer from
now-Marathon City Councilman Mike
Cinque. I lived there for several years
before moving to a house here in town. I
broke my leg and couldn't work for more
than two months. Mike allowed me to stay
in the trailer without paying rent. When I
returned to work, I paid Mike a little extra
in rent until I was caught up.
Mike has a manager who lives in the
park. Whenever I needed something


repaired, I just told Mike or Dave and it
was done. Mike was offered a lot of money
to sell off the trailer park land, but he'd
rather give the working man, or woman, an
affordable, comfortable place to live.
Whoever called an inspector against one
of Mike's trailers after being evicted must
have been really behind in their rent in the
first place. I want people to know what a
great landlord Mike Cinque was to me.

Customer service still exists

store like Home Depot in Marathon could

store? Well, it can if you're lucky enough
to have Mr. Richard Sheets in Hardware

When my front-door lock jammed this
past week just as I was leaving to go out

Unfortunately, the model I had was out of


stock, although a display model was still
available. After checking with his manag-
er, Mr. Sheets dismantled the display
model and gave me the locking mecha-
nism to exchange for my defective lock.
What a thoughtful, helpful gesture. He

And Causley wrote to the
state Commission on Ethics he
was including citation docu-
ments Cinque claimed in a June
"18 Keynoter story were never
issued. Those documents were
not available at press time, but
Cinque maintains he never
received them.
"I threatened nobody. I told
them to do their job and leave
me alone and I'd see them in
court. That's what the law's
there for," Cinque said. "As far
as I'm concerned, there wasn't
any code violation on that trail-
er. That was my problem with it
from day one."
Causley's statement about
"selective enforcement" in his


letter to the City. Council refers
to Cinque,
"Regarding the statement
that M.T. Causley performs
selective enforcement, I have
attached copies of the notices
[issued to Cinque] and it has
been noted that [Councilman]
Cinque was notified." He also
said he understands Cinque is
"taking care of the violations."
Causley didn't return several
calls for comment Tuesday.
As for a possible ethics com-
plaint, Cinque said, "I don't see
what could happen, so I'm not
concerned about it. I'm a city

the best I can."


Fire session

may get heated


Concerns stem
from blaze at
Rocketman's
By RYAN McCARTHY
rmccarthy@keynoter.com

A June 4 fire that destroyed
the home of musician Robert
"Rocketman" Hudson after
which Marathon Fire Rescue
faced harsh criticism from resi-
dents because of its response -
has the city of Marathon trying to
get its residents more focused on
fire safety.
The City Council has a public
safety workshop set for Thursday
at 5:30 p.m. at the fire station at
Florida Keys Marathon Airport.
City Manager Clyde Burnett
said he, Fire Rescue personnel
and council members would
address questions from the pub-
lic, many of which are likely to
stem from concerns about the
Rocketman blaze.
A Florida Keys Aqueduct
Authority representative will also
be on hand to discuss the city's
plan to install fire hydrants
throughout the city. Burnett said
hydrant location, staff training .
programs and water-drafting"
sources will be prominent topics.
"I'm presenting goals, chal-
lenges and solutions, basically a
document spelling out our issues
and immediate needs and the


future needs of the community,"
Fire Chief Dale Beaver said. "We
had this situation, now what can
we do to keep this from happen-
ing again. It will always be diffi-
cult to keep those situations from
happening, but if the taxpayers
want to support us, they can
make it happen."
Many residents witnessing the
fire said they felt it took too long
for Marathon Fire Rescue to get
water on it.
The fire department did attack
the flames with 1,750 gallons of
water upon arrival, but went
between 12 and 15 minutes with-
out another source when it ran
out, the department says.
Firefighters were then forced to
cut through 30 feet of mangroves
with a chainsaw to access a canal
behind a home across the street.
Beaver has said flames
entered the attic of the Calle
Ensenada home too quickly to
control it the fire, even if a steady
water supply had been available.
The fire at Hudson's home
reportedly began when his
daughter lit four tiki torches in
the backyard to scatter a swarm
of gnats gathering by the pool.
One of the citronella cylinders
apparently cracked, causing the
torch rod to ignite and set the
composite deck material ablaze.
It quickly spread to- the attic,
above a heavy tile ceiling.

In 1943 during World War II,

submarines off the Virginia coast.
Now it's the center of a legal bat-
tle over who owns the 85-foot
wooden vessel.
' The historic boat, docked in
Key West Harbor behind the
Schooner Wharf Bar, first set sail
in 1925 and now hosts chartered


sailing trips with beer, wine and
appetizers for $39.
Key Largo resident Kevin
Foley planned to take the
schooner to Provincetown,
Mass., for the summer, but a
Melbourne Beach resident, Sime
Dijan, has different plans.
He says he financed the boat's
restoration process and calls him-
self the owner.
"Nothing is going to happen to
the boat," Dijan's attorney-Jerry
Coleman said. "It's not going
anywhere."
But an empty boat slip in a
Provincetown dock is at risk.

"We're about to lose a very
valuable slip space in
Provincetown," Foley attorney
Robert Cintron said. "The Hindu
is to Provincetown as the
schooner Western Union is to
Key West."
Hindu General Manger Sunny
Andracchio says he wouldn't
mind working in Cape Cod with
the vessel, but it's a simple ques-
tion of economic viability.
"It's not financially feasible to
bring it to Provincetown in the
summer," Andracchio said. "The
cost of operating goes up when
you do that; you can't get as
much per person. We do book it a
lot down here. It's a classic
schooner, a real nice looking boat
and a touch of class. Guesthouses
are repeatedly sending people to
us because of the good time they
have."
After sailing to India to pur-
chase spices in the 1930s and
being decommissioned by the
U.S. Navy after World War II, it
settled in Provincetown before
coming to Key West in
November.

received payment. He also said
there was a verbal agreement that
he would own the vessel and the
company Hindu of Provincetown
Inc. in exchange for the loan obli-
gations.
The suit was filed to claim
ownership of the company and
the boat.
Foley says Dijan didn't loan
that much and that Dijan was
always considered a lender, never
an owner.
Foley, a former New Englander,
wanted to transport the Hindu to
Cape Cod in May, but that worried
Dijan. In the suit, he fears his
"rights, title and interest in it will
be lost" if it is transported.
Cintron says the case is simply
Foley getting "involved with
somebody" that is trying to throw
him off the boat. Foley says he's
worked on repairing the vessel
since he was 12. In 2005, he
rebuilt the vessel before she was
docked back in Provincetown in
September 2006.
No matter the court battle, it's

history for passersby on the his-

ride for folks looking to sail Keys
waters.

Down market


helps Habitat


It acquires
five condos,
6th on the way
By KYLE TEAL
kteal@keynoter.com

A Lower Keys nonprofit
group is taking advantage of the
souring real estate industry
while ensuring that generations
to come will have affordable
rental units.
Habitat for Humanity of Key
West and the Lower Keys on
Friday closed on five condo-
miniums at First Street and
Fogarty Avenue for about
$800,000, Executive Director
Bob Calhoun said.
Calhoun said First State Bank
of the Florida Keys, which
financed the deal, even paid the
closing costs, about $14,000.
The units were foreclosed in
August but the bank worked it
out so occupants weren't evict-
ed.
Calhoun says the tenants,
who include families and single
residents who pay from $790 to
$1,175 a month, won't be dis-
placed this year. In fact, if they
meet income eligibility require-
ments, they won't have to move
at all.
If they don't meet the
requirements, Calhoun says ten-
ants will be given ample time to
move. He says Habitat won't do
income surveys this year,
"Currently, the rates that are
being charged are affordable, but
they're not restricted in any
way," Calhoun said. Habitat will
ensure the units stay deed
restricted as affordable indefi-
nitely, he said.
"Right now, I think Key West
has bundles of rentals that have
been affordable for years and
years because the real estate
market is in the tank."
That's why, according to
Calhoun, it's important to strike
while the rentals are cheap in
this buyer's market, because
when the market recovers,
"those rental rates will evaporate
over night."
Habitat is also in negotia-
tions with Key West Bank to
purchase a sixth condo from the
same apartment complex at


1830 Fogarty Ave. The complex
has seven ene-bedroom units in
all, ranging from 411 square feet
to 726 square feet.
Calhoun. said Habitat staff
would renovate the apartments'
outdated kitchens and bath-
rooms, and add insulation to
keep the units cooler, which is a
means of lowering utility bills.
But those charges will also
come later.
"Nothing will happen to these
this year," Calhoun said.
Members of the city's
Community Housing
Committee, such as Chairman
Omar Garcia, see this kind of
preservation-minded strategy for
obtaining affordable housing as
an ongoing trend.
"I've always said there are
multiple approaches you need to
take to affordable housing,"
Garcia said. "Doing something
with existing units should be
part of the overall plan."
"But I don't think it should be
limited to nonprofits," he added.
Committee members have
discussed the possibility of pro-
ducing development agreements
that would allow Habitat for
Humanity to sell market-rate
development rights to develop-

WHALE SUCCOMBS: This rare beaked whale that stranded itself Friday off Islamorada was
euthanized at 6:13 p.m. Monday. A series of veterinary tests concluded the whale suffered
from a non-functioning liver and failed kidneys, says Robert Lingenfelser, president of the
Marine Mammal Conservancy, a Key Largo rehabilitation center. 'Our veterinarians and
National Marine Fisheries (Service) officials completely agreed there was no hope for the
whale,' Lingenfelser says, A full necropsy is planned.

The Big Cat Express pulls into the Key West Ferry Terminal last week. The number of passengers
coming to key West by ferry has increased steadily, to about 150,000 annually. But city officials
say the terminal could post a net loss next year.


It's a terminal success


Passengers are
pouring in,
but money isn't
By SAM NISSEN
snissen@keynoter.com

The Key West Ferry Terminal,
it seems, is a victim of its own
success. Each year the ferry serv-
ice brings in tens of thousands
more visitors to town than it did


the year before. But the increase
in passengers is putting pressure
on the economics of running the
terminal: Once full of rent-paying
businesses and city offices, the
building is now a sea of seats. '
"Passenger numbers are so
high that seating is at a premium,
especially during season with
three boats running," said Mark
Tait, the city's marina manager.
"We wanted to increase the seat-


ing areas, so now they sit where
the shop owners had their busi-
ness."
The terminal became a darling
of the budget for the Key West
Bight Management District
Board, netting well over
$100,000 in the 2004-2005 budg-
et year.
Enter harder times.
In an effort to trim the termi-
nal's budget, Key West trans-

Fire spurs businesses to think about

backing up their work off-site


By SAM NISSEN
snissen@keynoter.com

The fire that billowed high
above Key West last week burned
one real estate agent's records,
but sparked conversation among
others in the industry.
"We talked about this yester-
day, and thankfully we back up
off-site," said Gary Thomas,
agent with Dunaway McKenzie


Realtors. "Active contacts, com-
puter records and certainly per-
sonal items are going to be lost.
We all have paper files people
we've been in contact with, busi-
ness cards and you just can't
replace it. There's nothing like
paper, and when it's gone, it's
gone."
Realtor Bascom Grooms has


learned that lesson all too well.
His was the office at the center of
the now-fire-hollowed building
on White. Street. And where
Thomas had off-site data storage,
Grooms did not.
"I wasn't probably as prepared
as I should have been," he said.
"We had a server in our office,
and we also had a back-up tape.

Lavender Tribe
Tavernier

Tucked away in the
Toucan Tropical Homes
Building in Tavernier is a
new store, Lavender Tribe,
which brings together two
of owner Madey Acevedo's
passions creating hand-
made bodyvproducts and
finding clothes for her two
teenage daughters.
Acevedo, who worked as
a bookkeeper for eight
years, decided that she was
ready to branch out cre-
atively and started making
homemade glycerin soaps
for fun. She enjoyed the
process so much that she
started exploring online for
new recipes and quickly
began experimenting with
other ingredients like goat's
milk, soy and mango butter.
"It's like art," Acevedo
said. "I love smells. It's so
much fun to put them
together and try different
things. Of course, lavender
is my favorite scent."
She developed a line of
all-natural products, includ-
ing goat's milk soap, vegan
. soaps and linen sprays. One
year ago she started a Web
site www.lavendert,ribe
.net to feature her new
products.
In May she opened
Lavender Tribe, where she
sells soap, gift baskets and
clothing for teenagers.
Lavender Tribe is locat-
ed at mile marker 91 in
Tavernier. Hours are 10
a.m. to 6 p.m.

ferred security expenses- to the
Bight, Tait said. Add to that
heightened security measures
required by law. Combine that
with the already-lost tenants.
Throw in-higher diesel prices,
nearly doubling ticket prices,
thus reducing passengers travel-
ing. The result: in formulating the
2008-2009 budget, Bight man-
agers believe the terminal could
show a net loss.
"The ferry terminal has been a
real success, but looking at this
coming year, because of fuel
prices...we look like we're going
to be in the hole next year," Tait
said. "But I don't want to paint a
black picture, because it's not
really black we've done very
well until this year."
The budget crunch, said Tait,
means Bight tenants may subsi-
dize the terminal for the coming
year. "Who do the passengers
benefit when they come to Key
West? They benefit the business
in Key West," he told the
Keynoter.
The Bight and Key West
Express, which has an exclusive
deal to operate out of the ferry
terminal, will soon begin negoti-
ations on a new contract. Key
West Express, owned by the
Walsh family, now pays $1 per
passenger for the first 100,000
passengers; $0.75 per head for
the next 20,000 passengers and
$0.50 for any passengers beyond

"The city will want more to

ating," Tait said.
Key West Express, owned by
the Walsh family, has also told


city managers the winter-only

Business owners think backups

But that was also in the office. I
learned off-site storage of data is
definitely a must."
Grooms said his information
technology company has been
able to recover the computers
from inside his office and is
hopeful that some survived the
blaze. More 'important than the
heat, he said, was how much
water the computers sat in for the
five hours it took firefighters to
fight the blaze.
Grooms was able to set up
shop within a day with some help
from his family and the telephone
company. The owner of one of
the oldest real estate agencies is
back where he started: in the
space above his parent's bicycle


business on Truman Avenue, with
all his landline phone numbers
forwarding there.
Grooms says he's benefiting
from changes in the real estate
business, as agents generally rely
more on the Internet and on cell
phones.
Ideally an office can go paper-
less, says Lynda Anthony, direc-
tor of the Florida Keys Board of
Realtors. Her office uses retail
programs that process business
via the Internet, as well as back-
ing up servers online with their
Internet service provider. For
anything immediate and vital, the
board's employees use flash
drives.
"Most of our Realtors have
their livelihood on their
Blackberry or laptop," she said.
"Technology is wonderful these


days, and not that expensive
either."
Going paperless is not every-
one's solution.-Sandy Tuttle, an
agent with GMAC Schwartz
Property Sales in Big Pine, says
for her, trusting technology fully
is no smarter than relying solely
on paper. But -her office does
keep individual and offsite data
backups.
No matter their reliance on
technology, agents expressed
sympathized with Grooms.
"It's a huge setback..4o lose
everything, to put it all back
together," Tuttle said. "I spent a
huge amount of time to keep
things organized as is.
Fortunately anytime you have a
cell phone and laptop, you can do
business now-a-days."

A 14-run offense powered
the Upper Keys Juniors to a win
in Saturday's Little League dis-
trict opener but it wasn't enough
just one day later.
The Age 13-14 all-stars beat
Miami Springs, 14-7, in District

in Islamorada, but dropped a 15-
14 decision to Liberty City on
Sunday.
"Now we've got to win
Saturday to advance to the
championship," head coach Joe
Joyce said. "We have a really
good team but errors killed us
against Liberty City."

er Lori Bosco of Florida
Keys Community College,
the course record is three
hours, 31 minutes.
Both solo swimmers and
relay teams competed in the
annual swim. Thirty-three
people registered as solo
entrants and 72 in three- and
six-person teams, with each
team member swimming a
portion of the course.
Swimmers provided their
own support crews and boats
but were prohibited from
touching the boats except for
teams making relay changes.
Lifeguards and kayaks were
positioned throughout the
course for safety.


The Upper Keys face Doral


BASEBALL / From 19

That shortened the number of
games needed to pick the final-
ists.
The Upper Keys plays
Kendall Hammocks at 9:30
a.m. Saturday, followed by
Miami Springs vs. Liberty
City. The top two teams meet
at 1 p.m. Sunday. All games are
at Founders Park.
In the opener against Miami
Springs, the Upper Keys lineup
batted around in the second-
inning, scoring 10 runs off
seven hits. C.J. Linstrom
capped the rally with a two-
out, three-run double.
Miami Springs' tried to
mount its own rally in the
third, but the Upper Keys shut
it down on two consecutive
plays at the plate. Both times,
catcher Jordan Izaguirre
chased down a loose ball and


threw to winning pitcher
Nicholas Biondoletti, who cut
down runners trying to come
home.
The entire lineup hit well
against Springs pitching, Joyce
said.
Against Liberty City, defen-
sive errors let Liberty move out
to a big lead.
Biondoletti's double started
a seventh-inning rally that led
to seven runs to tie the game at
14-14. But Liberty City shoved.
one run across in the bottom of
the inning for the win.
"I know how well our guys
can play and have played.
We've got talent," Joyce said.
"That's why it hurt to lose one
like that."
He credited reliever John
Lietaert for throwing five solid
innings in a desperate situa-
tion.
"At that point, we really
didn't have anyone else,"


Joyce said. "He went out and
did a good job."

Could Tim Russert's Death Been Prevented?


The Truth
is...YES...
It's likely
it could have
been
prevented
IF the
correct
test was
performed.


All the news agencies were quick
to point out that Tim Russert under-
went a 'Stress Test' in April and
passed 'with flying colors. They
were quick to point out that he was
taking his blood pressure medicine
dutifully, as well a his cholesterol
medicine. So how do you die from
a sudden heart attack a mere 6-8
weeks later? As Dr. Mehmet Oz
explained on Good Morning
America after Tim's death, 'not all
nerves have PAIN sensors'. You
can have dysfunction to an organ
and not necessarily know it. A tra-
ditional 'stress test' looks at the
PATHOLOGY of the heart but not


the NEUROLOGY of the heart.

At the Total Wellness Center, as
part of our New Patient Exam, we
perform tests to look at nerve func-
*tion of every nerve from the brain
stem down the entire spinal column
and end up on the sciatic nerves.
Just as an EKG can detect an
abnormal heartbeat pattern, we can
detect any unusual nerve signals.

We would be happy to provide youth
with a FREE tour of our clinic,
show you our diagnostic equipment
and explain how the test works.


Please don't be another statistic of someone
with a 'silent killer'. We are here to help.

Keys Fishing


Offshore
Dolphin fishing is about
asgood as-it gets. The mahi
mahi are on the small side
inshore; beyond, say about
15 miles; the fish are bigger,
with plenty of nice gaffer
dolphin to be had.
Capt. Ron Allen on the
Fish Tales charterboat from
While Harbor Marina in
Islamorada had a special day
Friday with a blue marlin
estimated at 150 pounds,
plus a load of school-size
dolphin topped off by a bull
of 44 pounds and a cow of
36 pounds.

Reefs
Yes, it's still yellowtail
snapper that are the highlight
on the reef. They're a great
fish to catch and eat. Leave
the dock early while the sun
is low and the results will be
larger fish.
June is definitely man-
grove snapper time. They're
on the same schedule as the
yellowtail, which is defined
as pre-spaw n. Try the man-
grove snapper inshore of the
reef edge in 25 feet of water
or less in darkness.

Gulf, bay
Sensational snapper and
trout action is going on in
Florida Bay out to the west.
Jigging with soft-tail grubs
in the root beer color is the
ticket, meaning no bait is
needed. Just put the boat on
a drift and bounce the jigs in
the grassy 5- to 7-foot
depths.

Flats, backcountry
Tarpon is all the rage in
the Islamorada area. Still,
most guides have tunnel
vision when it comes to
them. Even with the full
moon this week, the tarpon
action was great.
Capt. John Gargan had a
fish on estimated at 140
pouiids one evening and it
took his client more than an
hour to get the fish boatside
to release it. Gargan baited
the big silver king with a
dolphin belly.

3rd time's a chain


Dalu, Collins
win the Gold Cup
and Triple Crown

Can you imagine besting the
rest of the field in all three or four
major championships in your
sport?
Tiger Woods proved how dif-
ficult that is to achieve in golf,
whose grand slam comprises the
Masters, U.S. Open, British Open
and PGA Championship. He's
achieved what is now called the
Tiger Slam simultaneously
holding the title to the four
majors, just not winning all four
in the same calendar year.
I bring this up because fishing
isn't all that different it has its
majors.
Angler David Dalu of
Charleston, S.C., and guide Scott
Collins of Marathon achieved
something in shallow-water tar-
pon fly fishing that has never
been accomplished before: They
won the Keys' fly fishing tarpon
Triple Crown, all within a month.
The last in the- series was the
Gold Cup, which ended Friday.
That's saying something
because noted anglers such as
Andy Mill, Sandy Moret, Glenn
Flutie, baseball great Ted
Williams and Billy Pate, and
guides including Jimmy Albright,
Cecil Keith, Hank Brown, Nat
Ragland, Jack Brothers and Stu
Apte didn't do it:
The 46th annual Gold Cup


Ttwas the
Calu n third leg in
the Triple
Crown,
comprising
F three of the
in Most pres-
a tigious and
long-run-
ning tour-
naments.
The first
two were
the Golden
Cal Sutphin Fly in late
May and
the Don Hawley in early June; all
three were held out of the Lorelei
in Islamorada.
Anglers and guides have won
all three in the past, but never in a
row in the same year.
Collins reached the pinnacle
of his career in a short amount of
time he's worked as a guide
just four years. -
"My dad was a guide here in
Marathon and when I was young,
I would always be reading the
record books about the Gold Cup
and the Don Hawley. I love histo-
ry and really have respect for
what others have done before
me," he says. "I grew up watch-
ing guys like Steve Huff and
Harry Spear, which were low-
profile guys but the very best
guides that ever were. This tour-
nament, more than any other, you
can really feel the tradition."
A sadistic sort of person must
have come up with the format for
these tournaments.

The Golden Fly is three days
long, the Hawley five and the
just-concluded Gold Cup five.
"These tournaments are
absolutely grueling," Collins
says. "My day starts at 3:45 a.m.
in Marathon getting prepared just
to get to the Lorelei by 5:30 each
day. Needless to say, the competi-
tion keeps you pushing yourself
each second of every day. It is
grueling.
Former Olympian and past
Gold Cup champion Mill, who
lives in Aspen, Colo., always
reports at the close of these tour-
naments that he is retiring from
competitive fishing because of
the stress and strain only to
reconsider when his batteries get
re-charged months later. He
returns each year.
The relationship between
Collins and Dalu came about
unconventionally.
"We became friends when I
was a software developer. We
started a relationship through an
online chat board about our boats,
a Dolphin Super Skiff; which he
had just bought," Collins says. "I
offered to take him fishing down
here and he couldn't believe I
was serious. I could see immedi-
ately that he was an outstanding
fly caster, but David did not know
anything about tarpon fishing.
That was five years ago and obvi-
ously he got better. We actually
learned a lot together."

Now's the perfect time to snap up the snapper


Larger baits
work the best;
bring plenty
The snapper are on the reef
and ready to rumble.
It's just about spawning time
for the mangrove snagper and
like any other species that only
gets one shot a year, they're not
going to miss it. All the signs are
there the bay is almost void of
snapper that are more than 2
pounds, the bridge channels still
are loaded with late arrivals that
are headed south to get there, and
Hawk Channel is flat-out loaded
with them as they get in that last
big feed prior to the reef.
This when you can get your
limit of mangrove snapper in a
very short time. But beware:
They will be very picky.
The recreational limit is five
per licensed angler, so it would


Cath be foolish
C to keep the
s m- a 1-1 e r
ones. It also
Sis tempting
when you
you'l a al g rea d y
v - f have your
limit and
you catch a
S \ 5p plus -
pounder.
.Use discre-
tion and
Dave Navarro common
sense, and
you'll have a great time and also
leave enough for generations to
come.
A general rule of thumb is to
spend at least an hour on a spot
where you're catching before
you keep one. The exception is if
one of the early fish is 4 pounds
or greater. By that time, you
should have brought in most of
the larger fish in the area.


Besides, they are a blast to catch
when they are this aggressive.
This also brings to mind the
bait., Whatever you take, take
plenty.
I have gone through more
than -50 live pinfish with four
anglers in less than half an hour.
I have found they are the second
best bait to have behind live
pilchards, which you can catch
there if you are out at night.
Live shrimp will give you
more action than you can handle
but it won't get you as many big
ones. The smaller fish are just
more aggressive (or dumber) and
not as picky as the larger ones.
Larger baits are better. There
are a wide variety of frozen baits
that work well. Pilchards, thread
herring, sardines, silversides,
ballyhoo and, yes, even frozen
pinfish will do just fine. A 5-
pound box of any of these baits
will hold about four anglers for
an hour to an hour and a half. If


they last longer than that, find
another fishing spot.
So there's your bait. What
about the where, when and with
what tackle?

Light tackle presents a great
challenge but a lot of fun (just
make up plenty of leaders.)
Fifteen- to 30-pound spinning
tackle is good for most.


Hooks of 3/0 to 5/0 will do
fine, and many circle hooks are
best for not getting hooked in the'
bottom as much. I have a light
circle that does just fine. It's
model No. 5114 in the 3/0 to 5/0
size. This does much less dam-
age to the fish, especially if you
are going to release it, yet it
hooks them very well.
As for the when and where, it
will depend on your level of
comfort fishing the Keys. If you
are not into going out at night,
then your best times will be late
afternoon in depths of 30 to 50
feet.
Mangrove snapper don't mark
on a fish-finding machine as well
as yellowtail. They don't mush-
room in a school over a rock
ledge. They hold close to the bot-
tom, so marking them is more
difficult.
If you want to get into the best.

are measured using a multiplica-
tion formula combining length
and girth.
Dalu and Collins caught three
weight fish and had 12 releases
for a total of 5,257 points over the
five days of the Gold Cup.
First runner-up was Rand
Holstead, of Houston, fishing
with -Capt. Brian Helms of


Homestead. Rand caught one
weight fish and had four releases.
Second runner-up was Jim
Holland Jr. of Seattle, fishing
with Capt. Joe Rodriguez of
Homestead; they caught one
weight fish and nine releases.
Holstead caught the largest
tarpon, 122 pounds, and also
high-point new angler and guide.
The Gold Cup fielded 25
anglers.


Keys Fishing


Keynoter


Don't skimp on the chum


NAVARRO / From 23

part of the bite, go at night.
From "Dark:30" (as I .call it
when it gets pitch black) until
sunrise is when the fish will do
the most feeding. At night, the
best depths have been from 45
to 90 feet. Have your boat set up
for dark with enough illumina-
tion available to find what you
need, proper anchor & running


lights and you will have a blast.
One thing to bring is plenty
of good chum. As with any type
of anchored fishing in the Keys,
if you don't have plenty of good
chum, you had best bring a good
book.
The chum, which is frozen
ground-up fish, will attract the
species you're trying to boat. It
will also put them in a feeding
mood (think of when you drive
by a barbecue place). There are


some very inexpensive chum
products available but they will
remind, you of passing by a
paper mill instead.
Take what you need, go dur-
ing the day or night, but go. The
action is worth it.

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