A a Marathon firefighter and
his wife caught running an
alleged puppy mill over the
weekend in Marathon have
apparently left town after surren-
dering 46 dogs to Stand Up For
Animals.


Tom and Marni Jones were
keeping "golden doodle" puppies
- a mix of poodle and golden
retriever in a warehouse
behind Florida Key Marathon
Airport and selling them over the
Internet for $1,500 each.
The Joneses, who operate
under the name Sixth Day Dog
Ranch, met with Stand Up For

Problems plague


airport terminal


County audit
slams contractor,
project costs
Keynoter Staff

The Monroe County Clerk of
the Court released a 70-page
report last week critical of the
construction of the new $32 mil-
lion terminal at Key West
International Airport.
Among the findings:
The construction manage-
ment company, The Morganti
Group Inc., was up to a year late
in delivering reports required for
compliance with county rules
and bid specifications;
+ Morganti was 265 days
late in providing a guaranteed
maximum price as per contract


with the county;
The price guarantee may
have loopholes that could stick
the county with more costs;
There are discrepancies as
large as $350,000 in line item
spending on summary state-
ments and backups provided.
The audit report, which was
delivered to the five county
commissioners on Friday, also
pinpoints problems with savings
on individual work items not
being posted to a contingency
fund.
The audit was prepared by
Mark Albury, director of inter-
nal audit for the clerk's office.
The Morganti Group, "did
not obtain the required written

Gas prices or not, people
seem intent on spending July 4
in the Florida Keys.
Hotels were filling up
throughout the islands as visi-
tors planned for a holiday get-
away, lured by clear waters and
community celebrations.
About a quarter of Key
Largo's hotels report full-house
bookings for the weekend, Key
Largo Chamber of Commerce
President Jackie Harder says.
"We had 200 people in the
[Florida Keys] Visitor Center
on Monday. That's a lot,"
Harder said. "By Friday, we'll
probably have a lot more filled.
We're getting calls constantly."
The nation's birthday could
catch some of the increasing
number of Keys foreign visitors
unaware, she said.
"Because of the exchange
rate, we're a bargain," Harder
said. "We're seeing Asians,
Germans and Danes in here. A
lot of them don't know about
the whole Fourth of July
thing."
Visitation numbers have
been off for the early part of the
year, Harder said, but June
numbers suggest more of a
return to 2007 numbers.
The Fourth of July typically
doesn't rank among the busiest
of holidays in the Keys when
compared with Memorial Day,
Christmas or even the lobster
mini-season. The exception is
when July 4 makes it a long
weekend, like this year.
"We're already seeing boats
being trailered down the road,"


Fun on the Fourth


Following are Jul. 4 events
planned for throughout the
Keys:
Fireworks oer
Blackwater Sound at 9 p.m.
The best seating is at
Sundowners and Senior
Frijoles Restaurants. Caribbean
Club and Marriott Key Largo

mile marker 104 ba' side
The Reporter sponsors its
33rd annual Fourth of Jul
parade. which starts at 10 a.m.
at mile marker 98.5 and heads
north.
Independence Day at
Holiday Isle Resort. mile mark-
er 84 oceanside, is a blast with
fireworks slated to launch at 9
p m.
Founders Park at mile
marker 87 is the site of an
annual celebration hosted by
the villagee of Islamoiada that
takes place all afternoon.
Acti ities for kids, teens, par-
ents and dogs highlight the day.

Officer Bobby Dube of the
Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission said
Monday.
"It will be another three-day
weekend so we expect to be
busy out on the water," Dube
said.
Officers in the Upper Keys
will be out at the Sandbar
anchoring spot in Whale
Harbor Channel off Islamorada,
preparing for the anticipated
party that can draw hundreds of
boats.


In Marathon, a patnotic
parade is slated to start on U_.S.
I at 10:30 am. and head down
Sombrero Beach Road to
Sombrero Beach, w here a pic-
nic and celebration lead into
the night's fireworks.
The Lower Keys Rotary
Club's annual Fourth of July
fireworks are to take place at
Sugarloaf Airport. mile marker
17 bav.side. Live music, food
and cold beverages are to be
accompanied bN games and
activities for both adults and
kids.
Ke) West's 24th annual
July 4 picnic to benefit Hospice
of the Florida Keys/Visiting
Nurse Association is to take
place at the Casa MNanna
Resort & Beach Club, 1500
Reynolds St.. overlooking the
Atlantic Ocean. The celebra-
tion is scheduled to start at 5
p.m with fireworks over the
Atlantic starting at 9


"They'll be out there so
we'll be keeping an eye on
things," Dube said. "As always,
there will be zero tolerance for
operating vessels under the
influence."
A construction zone near the
18-Mile Stretch has been
reconfigured after a Memorial
Day weekend traffic bottleneck
developed, and state operators
of the lighted information signs
along the highway will be pay-
ing close attention to traffic
developments.


2 injured in Sea-Doo crash


Keynoter Staff


A spot near the Card Sound
Bridge gaining popularity among
personal-watercraft operators
saw two people injured in a seri-
ous crash Sunday.
The marine officer investigat-
ing the accident charged another
vessel rider with reckless opera-
tion in an unrelated incident at the
same North Key Largo location.
"We're calling it JetSki Beach
now," said Officer Bobby Dube,
spokesman for the Florida Fish
Sand Wildlife Conservation
. o' commission. .;


Josue Alvarez, 21, and passen-
ger Elaine Martinez, 20, both of
Miami were aboard a 1992
Bombardier Sea-Doo when
Alvarez reportedly lost control
around 3:15 p.m. Sunday. The
small jet-powered craft crashed
into a mangrove fringe.
No one saw the crash, leaving
Alvarez and Martinez to make
their way out of the trees and
back to the launching area to call
for help. AlVharez was 'taken by
ambulance to a Hiimestead hos-
pital for treatment of head, and


facial injuries.
Martinez suffered possible
spinal injuries and was flown by
rescue helicopter to Jackson
Memorial Hospital in Miami. No
information on their current con-
dition was available at press time.
Officer Wade Heffner was at
the scene completing an accident
report when he reported seeing
another watercraft rider running
his vessel hazardously close to
other boats and swimmers in the
water. He arrested David Pena,
23, of Hialeah on a misdemeanor
count of recklessly operating a
personal watercraft.

DeputN Becky Herrin says
Later in the day, Paul was
in the checkout line at the Key
Largo Shell %w hen he spotted a
man and a woman in froni of
hmn who looked like the same

Bull declines


to run again


li n NOFOn R v iGT; i OJnUL 1iALE!AS l


Vice mayor
to concentrate
on new venture
By RYAN McCARTHY
rmccarthy@keynoter.com

Marathon Vice Mayor Chris
Bull says he wont seek a third
consecutive term on the City
Council this November, instead
returning to the private sector to
pursue business interests and
spend time with his family.
Bull and his wife Cindy sold
their UPS Store in October 2006
so he could concentrate on his
duties as a councilman.
"I think the city is in a lot
more stable position than when
we started over four years ago. A
lot of the bigger projects are in a
good place and I gave up having
a full-time job to be able to dedi-
cate to the city of Marathon dur-
ing a critical time," Bull said.
Bull has served as mayor, and
currently vice mayor, as he lob-
bied state and federal officials for
sewer funding. He's made
numerous trips to Tallahassee and
Washington, D.C., on behalf of
the city.
"I'm still going to work with
city things and after the elections,
I'll be doing what I did before I
got elected, which is attend meet-
ings and be active. Also, I'll be
pursing looking at the annexation
of Duck, Conch and Sunshine
keys for the city of Marathon,"
Bull said.
A businessman by trade, Bull


I MARATHON


BULL


has drawn up
several busi-
ness plans he's
not had time to
purse because
of city obliga-
tions. He said
his extended
time off from
work was well
spent but is no


longer "sustainable on a personal
level."
"I come from a business back-
ground and I need to get back to
that," he said.
But in a statement Monday,
Bull said his decision not to run
doesn't mean he's leaving the
political arena permanently. He
said he remains open to running
for City Council or another office
in the future.
Should he run for office again,
Bull makes it clear it will be in
Marathon. He said he's aware of
widespread rumors he's leaving
town but said he and his family
intend to remain.
Bull's is one of three seats to
be contested this November.
Mayor Pete Worthington and
Councilwoman Marilyn Tempest
have filed to run again. Ginger
Snead, Kevin Woodland and
."Bicycle" Joan Nelson have also
filed to run for the council.
Candidate qualifying is from
noon Aug. 5 to noon Aug. 12. If
they are qualifying by the petition
method rather than paying a fil-
ing fee, the petitions are due by
noon July 8.

received tips the dogs were being
kepf at the warehouse for breed-
ing. Stand Up operates the animal
shelters in Marathon that shel-
ter is directly across the street
from the dog warehouse and
on Big Pine Key.
Fire Chief Dale Beaver said
Tom Jones, 43, a city-paid fire-
fighter and paramedic, turned in
his gear Tuesday after just 10
days on the job. Beaver said
Jones and wife Mami, 40, left
town.
"The only thing he said was
because of the situation sur-
rounding the fire department, he
didn't want to draw any more
attention," Beaver said. The
department has been harshly crit-
icized communitywide for how it
handled a June 4 fire that
destroyed the home of entertain-
er Robert "Rocketman" Hudson.
Gottwald says that when she
got to the warehouse at 1064
Aviation Blvd. on Saturday, she
found the dogs in overcrowded
conditions with 16 puppies in
one small room with only a cere-
al bowl full of water. Other
rooms held six to eight dogs
each; many of the dogs were
pregnant.
The Joneses couldn't be
reached for comment, but the
Web site where the dogs were
advertised for sale described
them as coming from a "ranch."
Gottwald described the ware-
house as carpeted and reeking of
ammonia from urine.
A Monroe County Sheriff's
Office report filed by Deputy
Marc Maison also says the smell
of ammonia was very strong
when he entered the building.
The Joneses agreed to give
Stand Up For Animals custody
of the dogs. Most are in good
health. One large poodle gave
birth to six puppies Saturday

"We have found foster homes
for all of them and it looks like
-every puppy will be adopted,"
Gottwald said.
Dr. Kristin Hall from the
Marathon Veterinary Hospital
said there was no evidence of
abuse of the dogs, but that too
many of them were being kept in
a small space.
"They weren't being kept in
the best condition. It seems like
they got overwhelmed and had
too many animals," Hall said. "It
wasn't abuse; more a case of
neglect than anything else."
Gottwald says the Joneses
may have violated the state's so-
called puppy lemon law because,
she says, the sales contracts did-
n't provide for the care of sick
puppies and the warehouse did-
n't meet state standards for com-
mercial breeders.
Sheriff Rick Roth said the
Sheriff's Office is looking into
Gottwald's findings and that the
Joneses could face criminal
charges.

County audit reveals KW airport cost overruns

approval for bids that are two per- work under
cent above the applicable line anteed price
item in the GMP (guaranteed project is o
maximum price)," according to number.
the report.
County Engineer Dave
Koppel said Tuesday the report
was "old news," reiterating prob-
lems with the project that have
since been resolved.
"The clerk's office .has been
putting this report together and
getting information from my staff
,and the contractor. It took awhile
to finalize it," Koppel said.
`"We've reviewed it and there's
'really no surprise in it."
Morganti, which won the bid
4to supervise construction on the
:airport, sent a two-page letter to i
,the county clerk's office after
'receiving the report.
"We conduct monthly project
reviews internally," Gerri Kelly,
vice president of operations for
The Morganti Group, wrote in
response. "And (we) complete an
annual audit process that reviews
our projects in detail. Please rest
assured this contract is undergo-
ing similar reviews."
...... The Morganti letter did not
address any of the 48 specific
findings in the report and Kelly
did not return a call for comment
Tuesday.
County Administrator Roman
Gastesi submitted an eight-page
response in which he concurred
with many of the report's find-
ings. He took issue, however,
with the way the audit faulted
contingency funds and said any
savings "should either come back
to the county at the end of the
project or be available to defray
GMP (guaranteed maximum
price) ..."
This is not the first time the
airport and county oversight have
been criticized.
Last August, State Attorney
Mark Kohl sent a letter to county
commissioners detailing a critical
grand jury report that described
county oversight of the construc-
tion of the new terminal as "inad-
equate."
That came nearly a year after
Airports Director Peter Horton
raised concerns about rising
expenses for construction of the
new terminal, initially estimated
to cost $25 million. Then county
administrator Tom Willi removed
Horton from his o %ersight role
and named Koppel to that job in
,Pntprmhpr nf ?0ffliH


ember of 2006 the
mnmission approved a
on cap on the airport
the maximum guar-
;e. Koppel said the
n target to reach that


After the critical grand jury
report was released, Koppel
defended the county's work in
supervising the contract. "My
approach is I didn't care who was
at fault. We had a job to do, and I
wanted to just get the job done,"


he said.
This week's release of the
county clerk's audit report raises
some of the same questions
brought up during last year's
grand jury investigation.
"An alternative approach


could have been to fire the con-
tractor in 2006 and go out to
rebid. Weighing the options, we
thought it was better to work with
the contractor," Koppel said.
"We've already taken a lot of cor-
rective action,"

Don't forget history

of our independence

Portions of this reprise a column that ran last year after
hearing from readers who appreciated a recap on the history of
this special holiday observance.

The Fourth of July celebrates America's freedom and our
own battle for independence. Some of us, unfortunately, forget
that the holiday is really about celebrating the Declaration of
Independence, which was signed July 4, 1776.
Many of us .may have forgotten the American history lessons
we had in school, but we hope that 1776 and this birthday of
the nation's founding still has resonance.
Flying the flag, noisemakers and fireworks displays are tradi-
tions bound tightly to our celebrations of the Fourth of July.
We come by the bombast honestly and can trace back the tra-
dition to John Adams, one of the authors of the Declaration of
Independence, and later to become our nation's second presi-
dent.
In a letter he sent to his wife Abigail on July 3, 1776, Adams
reported on the drafting of the Declaration, completed July 2
and wrote:
"The Second Day of July 1776 will be the most memorable
Epocha, in the History of America.... It ought to be solemnized
with Pomp and Parade, with Shews, Games,-Sports, Guns,
Bells, Bonfires, and Illuminations from one End of this
Continent to the other from this Time forward forever more...."
Lost in the subsequent accounting of this period and its des-
ignation as America's birthday is the fact that not all the
colonies signed the Declaration on July 4, 1776.
And the famous document with signatures affixed, the
famous John Hancock being primary, was not actually signed
on July 4 by the 56 signers who represented the 13 colonies.
There were two signatures on the original broadside distrib-
uted to members of Congress on July 5, Hancock's as president
of the Continental Congress and Charles Thomson, as secretary
of Congress.
The copy of the Declaration delivered to King George III
later that same year was this version, with only the two signa-
tures, not the later and more famous version with all 56 names
embossed for history's sake.
So the next time someone asks you to sign your John
Hancock, you'll know what that means. And you'll know that
we have John and Abigail Adams to thank for the history of
"Pomp and Parade ... and Illuminations" that make the Fourth
of July truly feel like a birthday bash. '

Don't cut transit program on which seniors rely


EDITOR:
Before Monroe County Administrator Roman
Gastesi and his experienced administrative staff
begin to consider outrageous, cruel and unfair
cutbacks, let me try to enlighten them.
For more than 12 years, I was involved with
home health care from North Key Largo to south
Marathon. Any patient/client that could utilize the
wonderful services of Monroe County did. Aside
from the registered nurse visits, there was home
health care that included baths and helping with
chores and grocery shopping. They took excellent
care of our seniors.
This shuttle service Gastesi is considering can-
celing does he really understand the enormity
and tragic loss this would create? From Key West
to Key Largo, there are more than 100 people
who depend on and look forward to going to the
meal sites and doctors appointments, not to men-


tion the quadriplegic who can only get to their
destination via county transportation. These peo-
ple have neither the transportation nor the fami-
lies to assist them, so they need the county.
Regarding the libraries, as parents and teach-
ers, we have encouraged our youth and seniors to
utilize the many things the libraries offer -
books, computers, research materials and meeting
places. And now he wants to deprive them of this
wonderful educational tool? County Mayor
Mario Di Gennaro said we have to stop giving
everything away. Where were the powers that be
when salaries were being*increased and given
away like ice cream cones to the unworthy and
inexperienced employees under the leadership of
former County Administrator Tom Willi? Who
was watching the house then?

Investment in people makes community richer


EDITOR:
A few weeks ago, as I walked our dog on his
frequent daily walks, we developed a talking
relationship with a man who spent all of his
afternoons and early evenings sitting on a street
comer in our neighborhood. He was homeless
and an active alcoholic.
In our conversations, I learned that he, like
many homeless people, was a bright, personable
and interesting man, and also one who, due to
some very difficult personal circumstances, had
started drinking many years ago, lost what he
had and ended up on the street, sleeping at night
behind a trash bin.
As a relatively new Key West resident and a
practicing psychologist, I had also recently
become well acquainted with Father Steve
Braddock and the Florida Keys Outreach
Coalition. This organization does stellar work to
help homeless people and people with drug and
alcohol addictions get their lives back on track.
In May, I proudly became a member of the
Outreach Coalition board of directors.
Armed with my knowledge of the opportuni-
ties available through the Outreach Coalition, I
began talking with my street-comer friend about
how it .could help him. Initially he resisted, but
after several arrests for open-container viola-
tions and a particularly bloody fight when
someone stole his backpack, he asked pleading-
ly for help. With help from excellent Outreach
Coalition and DePoo Hospital staff people, in
two hours he was in treatment.

Send info about Jack's
EDITOR:
I am writing to request that anyone who may
have a funny story related to spending time in
Jack's Bar in Islamorada, send it to me for
research. You can e-mail me at
gamela.mooney@gmail.com. My parents
owned it in the 1970s, and I am trying to gather
as much pnfor ma'tion s possible.
SPa aoonpy i i -
.: akePlacid, Fla. F' )


Now, several weeks later, he remains' sober.
He attends AA meetings and has reconnected
with family. I have great confidence that,
because of the very structured and supportive
program he is in at the Outreach Coalition, he
will have a job relatively soon and be living
independently and not on. the street.
I believe that without the assistance of the
Outreach Coalition, my friend could not have
made the changes he needed to become a
responsible and contributing member of our
community. The outstanding services provided
by Outreach Coalition not only literally help
people save their lives and once again begin to
participate productively in family and commu-
nity life; they also aid our community by great-
ly reducing the number of homeless and addict-
ed folks who, without help, become costly and
troublesome in many ways for community
members and public agencies..
Our ongoing personal and governmental sup-
port of the Outreach Coalition is imperative.
This support is an investment that saves lives
and makes our Key West community a better
place to live for everyone.

Spaying, neutering free for pit bulls


EDITOR:
Since several South Florida
counties have banned the breed-
ing of pit bulls, the Florida
Keys Society for the Prevention
of Cruelty to Animals has been
noticing more and more pit
bulls coming to the Stock Island
animal shelter (Monroe County
is not part of the breeding ban).
While pit bulls can make
wonderful pets, they can be dif-
ficult to adopt out and own in
the Keys due to housing con-


straints. So to help stop this
proliferation of unwanted dogs,
the SPCA is offering to spay
and neuter pit bulls and pit bull
mixes free at its monthly spay
and neuter clinic.
For more information, call
the SPCA at 294-4857. To make
an appointment at the clinic,
call 292-4600.

Traffic delays could have been avoided


EDITOR:
The Memorial Day traffic
jam that occurred on late May
26 in Key Largo was something
that should not have been as
prolonged or as severe as it
was. The duration and distance
the traffic was backed up could
have been avoided.
The new Intelligent Traffic
System, which is used to moni-
tor by camera the traffic condi-
tions in Miami-Dade and
Monroe counties, recorded.the
eight-hour traffic jam that start-
ed at mile marker 106 and
extended four miles back to
mile marker 102. The traffic
control center in Miami-Dade
County did nothing to alleviate
the bottleneck even though calls
were made describing the prob-
lem.
The placement of barrels at
mile marker 106 about 100
yards before the Card Sound.
Road split was the problem.


The barrels confined the traffic
to one lane at that point, just
300 feet from where another
lane would have been accessi-
ble. If those barrels had been
moved just a few feet, one of
the lanes of traffic could have
continued up the Card Sound
Road. I was there the next
morning to confirm what I am
saying.
I guess my question to the
government is: What good is a
multimillion-dollar Intelligent
Traffic System if it only
receives information that is
consequently not acted upon?
Not only did thousands of
motorists experience this delay,
but they blocked any travel
across or northbound on U:S. 1
through Key Largo, thus ruin-
ing the evening for patrons and
businesses.

Reason for gas costs easy to calculate


EDITOR:
In the debate about drilling
closer to Florida's coast or in
the Arctic National Wildlife
Refuge, nobody mentions that
there really isn't such a thing as
domestic oil.
When oil comes out of the
ground, unless in Venezuela or
a few other countries that have
nationalized oil production and
supply, it goes onto the world
market where, thanks to the
"charge what the traffic will
bear" mentality of greed, the
world price gets slapped onto
every barrel.
Do we see oil company exec-
utives on TV saying that if they
can drill in ANWR or closer to
Florida's coast, they'll keep the
oil in the U.S. and gviy us.a '
special price on h6omgroWnr'? 1i
haven't, but I don't watch much


We've helped boost the
economy of China by our
addiction to cheap goods they
produce,.and now their econo-
my is. such that they can outbid
us on oil that comes out of our
ground. One of the down sides
of globalization has come home,
to roost.
Don't blame environmental-
ists for high prices of oil or
gasoline. It's not a shortage of
U.S. refineries that's causing
high pump prices. Refineries in
the U.S. have been operating at
below capacity for quite some
time, whether it's a deliberate
tactic to keep prices up or due
to a shorter supply of crude
because the developing world
can now afford to outbid us.

Union never waivered

in supporting volunteers


On June 26, a workshop was conducted
at Marathon Fire Rescue to allow people
to share thoughts and concerns regarding
fire safety. Many statements were made,
mostly in support of the department's
efforts, while some shared discomfort. I
think it's extremely important to clarify the
misconceptions that some people believe
to be true.
A very good example of this would be
the comments made by Randy Mearns, a
former volunteer. Most notably, he said the
union ran off the volunteers. Nothing
could be further from the truth. As a union
member, I would like to address those
statements that were made during the
workshop.
I have been a member of
the fire service for more than
nine years, starting out with
the volunteer organization. I
was a volunteer for four
years until I was hired as a
career firefighter for the city.
During that time, we had a
group of only 10 dedicated
people that would respond to
emergencies. We always par-
ticipated in the training that
was necessary to safely fight
fires. Ultimately, we were
hired by Monroe County, Eric Duns
Marathon or moved away vice pre
due to the high cost of living vicef pre
in the Keys, leaving no more of tf
responders. Those volunteers Professi
that you think were run off Firefight
are the very ones that never Marat
responded to any calls, with a Local z
few exceptions.
How could one who holds
such a high regard for volunteerism and
the protection of his own community pos-
sibly allow himself to be run off by those
who share that very same position?
Sincere dedication simply does not work
that way.
Mearns said the department is failing to
protect the community. Out of all the fires
we've had in this city since the inception,
only four were unsalvageable. This is an
impressive record.
Our union has always worked with and
supported the volunteers. So I ask this: Mr.
Mearns, where is your support of the vol-
unteers? Where were you and the others
during the "firefighter for a day" event?
This was held for the recruitment of volun-
teers and the union was there. Where were
you and the others during the boot drive
conducted to raise money for the volunteer
from Layton who was critically injured
while responding to an accident? The
iiuriibi was. there. Where were y6o when
Th ithi' u handed out free turkey dinners at
I Nblih families in need?


f

s
1(

e
h
i,


What about during Wilma? We respond-
ed to more than 25 calls during the first 10
hours and worked more than 72 continu-
ous hours helping our community and sav-
ing lives from the rising flood waters. Our
local members did this while separated
from our families. My wife and 5-year-old
son were at our house watching everything
we owned become destroyed.
The union also helped in the annual
spaghetti dinner, a function intended to
raise money for the volunteer organization.
The union did this for nothing in return.
Does this sound like a group of people try-
ing to run off the volunteers?
I was very concerned when I heard Mr.
Mearns say he understands we don't have
many fires and one would become
rusty. When I was a volunteer, I
do not remember, ever seeing him
at any of the training. I wonder
* how rusty he and others must be
from not attending training for
more than nine years.
How could someone with such a
lack of training suggest that poor
decisions are being made? It's as
if I were a volunteer electrician
telling him, a certified electrician,
how to wire a house. Sure I could
do it, but it would probably kill
ord is someone. Get my point?
ident Back then, fires burned down
e .many structures and lives were'
e put at risk under the direction of
onal the so-called experienced fire-
rs of fighters who desperately want
on things to go back to the way they
396. were before.
Karen Farley-Wilkinson, a citi-
zen, suggested that state laws that
have been implemented to ensure that all
fire operations are conducted safely be
thrown out to allow the volunteers to take
over. These laws are in place so that those
who are not properly trained who can
potentially cause unnecessary injuries or
death are not be allowed to participate
in fire suppression. All properly trained
firefighters depend on these laws to keep
them safe.
The union will always work with the
volunteers. The mistruths spoken by
Randy Mearns are just a glimpse of the
unnecessary discord that has placed a
wedge between the volunteers and our
union. The union has always had a vested
interest in the community.
I'm confident that should anyone ever
dial 911, they can rest assured that proper-
ly trained personnel will respond and treat
the emergency as if it were their very own.
This is because of the career organization
and those very laws in place that are
designed, to ensure the proper training nec-
essary to provide this. level of service.

Tampa couple
arrested again
A. Tampa couple that was

breaking into a truck at the
Little Duck Key end of the

second auto burglary.
Juan Gonzalez, 39, and Dalia

bridge and stole a purse. The
victims saw the suspects' van

It's a bird, it's a plane, it's


... a blimp?


Military airship
starts patrols
over the straits
Keynoter Staff

The Skyship 600 used to
soar over crowds, sporting a
FujiFilm logo as it hovered
over outdoors events an
unavoidable form of advertis-
ing.
But the helium-filled
manned blimp ditched the
logo and launched Tuesday
morning from Naval Air
Station Key West on Boca
Chica Key.
Over the next six weeks,
pilots and crew of the Skyship
600 will patrol over the Straits
of Florida to test the airship's
effectiveness in spotting drug
runners and alien smugglers.
It's the first time since 1962
the military has employed a
blimp for.security purposes.
The U.S. Coast Guard,
which is partnering with the.
Navy and the National Office
of Global Maritime Situational
Awareness on the blimp exper-
iment, says the Keys testing is
to determine how well the
blimp might do at "nationwide
applications."
"NAS Boca Chica has plen-
ty of space and plenty of air-
space. We don't have as much


air traffic as other places.
That's why they chose here,"
Coast Guard Sector Key West
spokeswoman said Matthew
Meinhold said.
"The blimp is just going to
be one of. many different
aspects we'll have for security
in the area," Coast Guard
District 7 Lt. Matthew
Moorlag said "It provides a
resource for us to use in the
counter-drug and alien-
migrant interdictions, as well
as other things like search and
rescue."
The failure of eight Coast
Guard cutters is another rea-
son, though a tangential one,
the blimp is here.
In November 2006, struc-
tural flaws were found in eight
Key West-based cutters used
for homeland security, drug
and migrant interdictions, and
general law enforcement.
Adm. Thad Allen declared
the eight unfit for water, leav-
ing only two cutters to patrol
the area. Top military officials
have said the blimp could
serve as added assistance to
the remaining cutters.
However, "This isn't an
option to fill the gap,"
Meinhold said.
The blimp can stay in the
sky for 52 hours without refu-
eling, and with its two Porsche

Truck set ablaze

A Key West man was jailed
Tuesday morning on a felony

Sanctuary re-up put on hold


Reauthorization
has now been
3 years overdue
By KEVIN WADLOW
Senior Staff Writer
kwadlow@keynoter.com

The loffg-delayed reauthoriza-
tion of the National Marine
Sanctuaries Act likely will be
delayed a while longer.
"It looks like no action will be
taken until next year," said Karrie
Carnes, information officer for
the Florida Keys National Marine
Sanctuary, one of 14 marine sanc-
tuaries in the U.S.
The delay will not directly
affect local sanctuary operations,
she said.
"It's three years overdue
now," Cames said. "The reautho-
rization is a time for us to look at
lessons learned and assess areas


where we need to adapt or
change. But the sanctuary contin-
ues- to operate in the meantime."
The congressional calendar is
running down for 2008, with leg-
islators on a Fourth of July recess
now and scheduled for another
break in August.
The session wraps up before
November's election, so it
appears unlikely the sanctuaries
bill will win full passage before
2009, Carnes said.
Legislation will be reintro-
duced next year.
The Fisheries, Wildlife and
Oceans Subcommittee in the U.S.
House of Representatives held a
June 18 hearing on the reautho-
rization.
Even without further action

said the hearing served to "reiter-
ate the importance of reauthoriz-


ing the National Marine
Sanctuaries Act in order to con-
tinue protecting the unique and
fragile marine ecosystems that
are so important for life on our
planet earth."
Ros-Lehtinen represents the
Keys.
"Sanctuaries are special places
and as such we must be proactive
in assuring their continued exis-
tence and health," she said.
The National Marine
Sanctuaries Program encompass-
es 14 sites covering 150,000
square miles of ocean.
The Keys sanctuary, with
2,800 square nautical miles, is
among the largest. The Key
Largo National Marine Sanctuary
in 1975 was the second such pre-
serve created in the United States.
It was expanded to include most
Keys waters in 1990.
Leon Panetta, co-chairman of
the federal Joint Ocean Com-
mission Initiative, appeared at the


June 18 hearing to urge increased
support for the sanctuary system.
Marine sanctuaries "protect
significant natural and cultural
resources while allowing people
to use and enjoy these special
areas in a sustainable way,"
Panetta testified at the hearing.
Sanctuary staff should be
given greater latitude to use sci-
entific research to make neces-
sary rule changes, Panetta said,
particularly in regard to no-take
marine reserves.
The marine-reserve process
was pioneered in the Florida
Keys National Marine Sanctuary.
Panetta also called for a signif-
icant budget increase for a pro-
gram that covers more territory
than the national park system.
The national sanctuaries budg-
et peaked in 2005 at $51 million
but was reduced to $35 million in
2006. It has remained at that
level.

The U.S. House's Energy

$10 million has actually
been allocated since the
authorization was approved
in 2000.


By KYLE TEAL

Gov. Charlie Crist supports
what Florida Keys Community
College administrators call a
desperate need for on-campus
housing.
On June 23, he signed a bill
that allows the institution to go
forward with plans for a dormito-
ry. That opens the door for the
college to send out requests for
qualifications to design and build
the 100-room dorm, whose price
college President Jill Landesberg-
Boyle estimates at anywhere from
$5 million to $10 million.
The bill allows the dorm to be
built as high as 45 feet, 10 feet
higher than Key West code


allows. Landesberg-Boyle said
the height-limit exemption was
put into the bill with the support
of the state Department of
Community Affairs and Crist
because the dorm would support
the college's educational mission.
"That's big stuff," college
board Chairman Ed Scales said.
The bill also makes the college
exempt from seeking building
permit allocations, the number of
which is issued by the state based
on hurricane evacuation times.
Jim Hendrick, a consultant for
the dorm project, said the 45-foot
height would allow a three-'story
dorm over parking at the bottom
level.
"The buildings have to be
raised anyway for the flood
zone," Hendrick said. "State edu-
cational facilities are not subject
to local [land use regulations].
The requirements are actually in


the state statute, as opposed to the
city codes. Fortunately, there are
no immediate neighbors, so it
wouldn't have an impact."
The college is at 5901 College
Road, Stock Island. The property
slated for the project is behind the
Public Safety Building, overlook-
ing the water and near the cam-
pus pool.
According to Vice President
of Financial and Administrative
Services John Kehoe, the ball-
park size of the building will be
between 35,000 to 40,000 square
feet, with some rooms being sin-
gle, some double and some possi-
bly four-bed units.
Plans for a dorm have. been on
the new college administration's
priority list for about a year. It'll
actually be overseen by the col-
lege's fundraising arm, the
Florida Keys Educational
Foundation, which could in turn
lease the building to a private
company to manage.


"We're still looking at who
would manage it," Kehoe -said.
"We are soliciting a number of
different proposals."
The state approval could be
attributed to a recent visit from
DCA Secretary Thomas Pelham,
Scales said. When he visited the
college, Pelham saw the need for
housing for students, Scales said.
Administrators say it's too
early to determine what students
would pay to live in the dorm.
"We would try to find a rate
that is extremely competitive and
feasible for our students' budget,"
Landesberg-Boyle said. "The
whole purpose: is finding an
affordable and safe option for stu-
dents to go to school and reside in
.Key West."
Scales said that if an evacua-
tion were ordered if a hurricane
hits, dorm residents would be
required to leave in the first wave
of evacuees, which includes
tourists.

Conflicts in widow's story


But husband's
death still
ruled murder
Associated Press


North Carolina investigators
say a woman with five dead
spouses including one in the
Keys had long been separated
from her first husband when he
was killed: Betty Neumar's first
spouse was fatally shot in Ohio
in 1970, not in 1952 as they orig-
inally believed.
Stanly County Sheriff's
Detective Scott Williams said
Friday that another man by the
same name died in 1952 in the
Ohio town where the couple
lived.
But investigators' work and
additional public records show
the Clarence Malone who was
married to Neumar was .fatally
shot 18 years later in Medina,
Ohio. The case remains
unsolved. At the time Neumar,
was married .to her fourth hus-
band, Harold Gentry.
"She told us that her first hus-
band died of cancer in 1952. We
know that's not true," Williams


said.
The 76-
y e a r o 1 d
Neumar was
.charged last
S .;;.. month in
'** &N o r t h
Carolina with
solicitation of
murder in the
NEUMAR 1986 shooting
death of Gentry. She's being held
on $500,000 bond in the Stanly
County jail.
After her marriage to Malone
dissolved in the early 1950s,
Neumar married John Flynn,
who died in 1954. Police say she
had two. children by the early
marriages, including a son with
Malone.
Her third husband, Richard
Sills, was found dead in his
apartment on Big Coppitt Key in
1965. Neumar told police they
were alone in a room arguing
when he pulled out a gun and
shot himself. The Monroe
County .Sheriff's Office is taking
another look at the case, which
was ruled a.suicide.
Gentry, the fourth ltusband,
was found shot to death inside


the couple's home in 1986.
Three years later, she married
her fifth husband, John Neumar.
He died in October, and authori-
ties in Augusta, Ga., are investi-
gating whether his death offi-
cially listed as listed as sepsis,
bacterial infection of the body's
blood and tissues might have
another cause, such as arsenic
poisoning.
Police are still trying to piece
together Neumar's life in Ohio,
Florida and Georgia _-states
where she was married and
talking to friends and family
members.
Family members of Gentry
and John Neumar husband
No. 5 said she told them she
was only married once and that
her first husband died of cancer.
"She said she nursed him the
whole time," said Al Gentry,
Harold Gentry's brother.
After Clarence Malone and
Betty Neumar split, he remarried
twice and opened a body shop
near Medina, a small town about
35 miles southwest of Cleveland.
He wis shot once in the back of
the head outside his shop Nov.
27, 1970. His death was ruled a
homicide. Police said-there were
no signs of robbery.

Islamorada accepts
hazardous waste

Islamorada residents can take
household hazardous waste to a
special drop-off location July 10
to 12 for free disposal.
The drop-off, at the south end
of Founders Park, next to the
baseball field, will be open 8:30
a.m. to 12:30 p.m. each of the
three days. It's a once-a-year
opportunity the village provides
for residents to dispose of their
hazardous waste locally.
It's for residential waste only,


not commercial. Proof of
Islamorada residency is
required.
Household waste includes
bottles or cans of flammable liq-
uid fuel, chlorine bottles, liquid
poison, flammable solids,
aerosol, corrosive materials, liq-
uid or solid oxidizers, pesticides
or herbicides, cyanides or sul-
fides, dry cell alkaline batteries,
lead acid batteries, used non-
contaminated oils, anti-freeze,
latex paint, polishes, contami-
nated oil solvents and tires off
the rim that don't exceed a light-
duty SUV.


Miami headquarters or "by one
or the other depending- on cir-
cumstances as needed," says
South Florida agency
spokesman Zach-Mann.
"My immediate goal is to
increase- our enforcement pos-
ture while facilitating legitimate
trade and travel," DeMonch, 60,
said in a prepared statement.
Mann says the agency
processes almost 700,000 peo-
ple, nearly 500 cruise ships,
1,200 to 1,500 private vessels
and up to 1,000 private and mil-
itary aircraft annually. The mili-
tary aircraft land at Naval Air
Station Key West.
The Key West airport and
harbor are DeMonch's priorities
but that could expand if Cuba,
on which the federal government
has, had a travel ban for more
than 40 years, opens. That's
because many see Florida Keys
Marathon Airport and Boot Key
Harbor in Marathon as future
international points of entry.
DeMonch took over the job in
late June from Leila Kataja, who
retired, but he's no stranger to
the Keys.
He's worked with Border
Protection in Key West since


August 2004, when he trans-
ferred from El Paso, Texas.
While in the U.S. Air Force,
which he joined in 1968, he was
stationed at Boca Chica from
1993 to 1995. For 10 years
before that, he was stationed at
Homestead Air Reserve Base.
He also has worked as a border
agent in Columbus, N.M.

Gastesi: Libraries,


social services safe


Administrator
crafting '09
county budget
Keynoter Staff

More budget cuts to social
services and the Monroe
County library system are off
the table for fiscal year 2008-09
but expect a tax increase,
County Administrator Roman
Gastesi says.
The county is facing a short-
fall of $12.5 million for the fis-
cal year that begins Oct. 1.
"We're adjusting services
half of that, adjusting the mill-
age half of that," Gastesi says,
meaning he's trying to make up
half by cutting county govern-
ment and the other half by rais-
ing taxes.
He's looking to eliminate 55
county jobs through restructur-
ing, attrition and possibly elim-
inating positions altogether.
But he says he won't recom-
mend services that have already
been cut be cut more.
"We're not proposing cut-
ting human services," he said.
And "the library's untouch-
able." Closing some of the five
branches, as has been rumored,
was "never contemplated in my
proposed budget."
Earlier this year, the Human
Services Advisory Board rec-
ommended cutting nonprofits
by 20 percent the coming budg-
et year. The hardest hit:


w..
'~ ~ *


American Red Cross, 82 per-
cent; Health Start Coalition,
47.2 percent; and the Florida
Keys Outreach Coalition,
'which serves the homeless,
36.7 percent.
Gastesi says any talk of
more cuts for nonprofits isn't
coming from him.
"I'm not cutting $1 million
from the community-based
organizations," he says.
Tuesday, he and his senior
staff were still cobbling togeth-
er a proposed budget in antici-
pation of a County Commission
budget workshop today at the
Marathon Government Center.
The current adopted budget
is $79.1 million but Gastesi,
who replaced former County
Administrator in May, says the
real figure is closer to $83 mil-
lion.
Homeowners pay an aggre-
gate tax rate of 2.73 mills, or an
average tax bill of $273 per
$100,000 of assessed property
value. Rates vary -slightly
throughout ,the unincorporated
areas because there are various
special taxing districts not
everyone pays into.
Today's budget session is
just the beginning of a long
process. More workshops will
take place over the summer,
and three public hearings will
take place in September before
the County Commission votes
on a final spending plan.

World Class Angler moves


Bait and tackle
a favorite
for 20 years
By KAREN QUIST
kquist@keynoter.com

Customers can now catch the
World Class Angler at 3740
Overseas Highway in Marathon.
The 20-year-old bait and
tackle shop made the move
down the highway late last
week, leaving its old location at


5050 Overseas, where it took up
the whole front of the block.
Owner Dave Navarro and his
crew are still setting up shop in
the new location, which is sand-
wiched between the Upper
Crust Pizza and Takara Thai
restaurants and across the road
" from Annette's. It's a deceptive-
ly large space, with 1,800 square
feet unfolding behind the nar-
row storefront. Navarro said his
old shop was 1,400 square feet
inside.


There's also a large space out
back, where Navarro plans to
have his shop's ever-popular
weekly fishing seminars come
fall. The free seminars, which
run October through April, will
move from Thursday to Sunday
evenings, since the shop's
neighbors are closed on that
night.
The move has been no small
feat, with thousands of items to
find new homes for. Navarro

Doubletree Grand Key
gets Green designation

The Florida Department of
Environmental Protection has
awarded the Doubletree Grand
Key Resort in Key West with a
Green Lodging designation. The
Doubletree is the' 13th property
to be designated in the Florida
Keys and the 198th in the state.
The voluntary state initiative
provides the lodging industry
with technical assistance,'


encouraging hotels and motels to
adopt cost-saving "green" prac-
tices that reduce waste and con-
serve water and other natural
resources. These practices
include, but are not limited to,

All designated members of the

behind by the store's previous
occupant.
Malka and husband Jack also
thought the location was perfect,
but the more they got into the
space, the more they realized
they'd have to change.
"It wasn't really set up for a
grocery store," Malka said, with
too much refrigeration, no freezer
space and little room for produce.
After weeks of working in the
space and even bringing in con-
sultants, the Malkas realized it
would have taken too much time
and money to reconfigure it for
Delicious Organics' needs.
"We're really .sad about it,"
Malka said. "We'd found a great
crew and were excited about
everything falling into place."
Delicious Organics' offerings
include organic fruits, vegetables,
juices and nuts and organic and
grass-fed meats and dairy, with
an emphasis on seasonal and
locally grown produce.
Opening a retail store would
have been a new venture for
Delicious Organics, which now
delivers groceries to customers
throughout South Florida out of

Scott Saunders of Wauchula leans over the boat to get a closer look at a juvenile whale shark in early June. Jim Young, a
resident of both Marathon and St. Petersburg Beach, was driving the boat. This was the first whale shark he's seen in 40 years of
fishing in the area.



Quite the sighting: Whale shark


Biggest fish in sea
befriends boaters
By MARGARET MENGE
mmenge@keynoter.com

Jim Young, a part-time resi-
dent of Marathon, went into the
bait shop and told the guy behind
the counter what he and his bud-
dies saw on their last fishing trip.
"I hate you," the clerk at Big
Time Bait & Tackle told him after
he'd heard the story.
Young and his friends were
anchored at the reef in early June
due south of Bonefish Towers in
about 100 feet of water off
Marathon when they saw some-
thing they couldn't immediately
identify.
";We thought it was a turtle at
first, way off. Finally the one guy.
fishing with us said, 'That's no.


turtle. That's a whale shark.'"
The 18- to 19-foot shark swam
in the chum slick off the back of
their 21-foot center console boat
for about 45 minutes, according
to Young.
Remoras, commonly known
as tag-alongs (parasitic fish that
attach to sharks), swam along
beside. One of the guys in the
boat, a resident of Central
Florida, tried to reach out and
touch the shark. Young suggested
to his friend to jump in the water
with it. He demurred.
The whale shark is the largest
shark and the largest fish in
the ocean, with adults measuring
up to 33 feet long and weighing
up to 60 tons.
Dr. Bob Heuter, director of the
Center for Shark Research at
Mote Marine Laboratpry in


Sarasota, says they get reports of
whale shark sightings through the
year, though most fishermen go
their whole lives without seeing
one.
Whale sharks are distinguish-
able by their spotted backs and

the ocean.


broad, flat faces. They are filter
feeders, trolling through ocean
waters feeding on whatever flows
into their giant mouths, and push-
ing water out through their gills.
"They're very gentle," Heuter


says. "So all you have to worry
about is getting slapped by
them.... You can get in the water
and swim with them. It's OK."
He just recommends that you not
try to touch them.
Heuter spends every summer
in the waters around Holbox
Island, off the Yucatan Peninsula
in Mexico, where hundreds of
whale sharks come to feed ev,.y
July. A whole tourism industry
has built up around the whale
shark pow-wow, with tourists
jumping in the water with the
giant sharks.
Since 2004, Heuter and his
fellow researchers have tagged
more than 600 whale sharks at
Holbox Island. The tags are big
plastic yellow cards attached next
to the dorsal fin and used to track
the movements. "We'd love to
hear any report of sightings"Tif

Anyone interested in reducing

patterns of contractiori in the
muscles. We gradually lose
awareness of -those habitually
contracted muscles. As a result,
we are left with discomfort and
limited ways of moving...."

The Upper Keys Majors closed
out the Little League District 8
Tournament with an extra-inning
victory Saturday but may come up
short of the playoffs.
"It's been a great experience,"
said Tony Romero, head coach of
the age 11 and 12 all-stars. "We
had a good group of players and a
good group of parents."
The Upper Keys topped
Homestead, 8-6,-with a three-run
rally in the top of the seventh
inning at Doral: But it still took a
standout defensive, play to cut
short a Homestead comeback bid.
Homestead scored once in the


eighth and had the bases loaded
with two outs when the hitter laid
a bunt down the first-base line.
Keys pitcher A.J. Paterson field-
ed the ball and tossed to Paul
Pauchey, moving from second to
cover the bag for the putout.
"We had to win to have any
chance of advancing," Romero
said. "The kids produced at the
plate and in the field."
"They played their best game
as a team," he said. "Everybody
did something to keep us in the
game."
Starting pitcher Justin Perrine
kept the Homestead lineup in
check as the Upper Keys moved
out to a 3-0 lead at the Doral site.
That changed in the fourth
when a two-run Homestead home
rui helped the team tie the game
at 3S.. :
The regulation six innings
ended in a 5-5 deadlock. .


In the top of the seventh, the
Upper Keys unleashed a flurry of
singles, sending six hitters to the
plate in a three-run outburst. That
set the stage for the late defensive
heroics.
Romero said the team played
well, even coming off a 5-4 heart-
breaker loss to Doral Friday.
Perrine put a two-run homer
out of the park his first of the
season as the Upper Keys built
a 4-2 lead.
Defensive lapses let Doral
come back to take the lead in the
bottom of the sixth.
"The winning run came home
on a blooper, a tough play to
make," Romero said. "It was not
a solid hit that beat us."
Kendall Hammocks went 3-0
in the round robin tournament,
winning each game easily. The
-three remaining teams all went 1-
-. ,2, with Doral winning a tiebreaker

The Keys


Ballard helps

defeat Tiger

McClatchy Tribune

Rocco Mediate remembers.
But the legion of golf fans who
became Rocco Mediate converts
as a result of the U.S. Open
probably don't.
It was only 17 months ago he
was walking the fairways at the
Plantation Course at Kapalua
and Waialae Country Club in
Hawaii. Nothing particularly
remarkable in that. Professional
golfers do that every January to
kick off the PGA Tour season.
He was a man searching for
his game, his confidence and his
future.
"I felt terrible, was playing
terrible and wasn't quite sure
where I was headed," Mediate
said.
Through sponsors' exemp-
tions, he was. able to get into
enough tournaments in 2007 to
earn his 2008 Tour card.
As a result, the golf world
was glued to television sets ear-
lier this month as Mediate
forced the No. 1 player to birdie
the 18th hole twice (in regula-
tion and the playoff) just to stay
in the game.
"I blinked on the first playoff
hole, and it was over," Mediate
said. "That's the way it is when
you play Tiger Woods. Sure, I'm
disappointed that I didn't beat
him, but if I had lost to anybody
else, I'd be devastated. I've
thought about this a little. Even
if I win a major, I'm not sure I
can get any more satisfaction
than what I got from the Open."
Huge odds were working
against Mediate. After all, how
many have gone against Tiger
Woods and come away a win-
ner? Yet, one guy in North Key

for the playoff spot as runner-up.
Other coaches lodged a formal
complaint, asking Little League
Baseball to determine if
Kendall's strong lineup all live
within the community as
required.
No decision had been reached
at press time. The playoffs are
scheduled to start July 7. If
Kendall is ruled ineligible, the
Keys team would get in the play-
offs as the second-place team in
the District 8 tournament.
"Kendall has a great team, no
question," Romero said. "If it's
all been done properly, my hat's
off to them."
Romero said he's trying to see
if he can take the Upper Keys
team to a non-league tournament
later this summer. "It's a good
group and we've had a lot of
fun," he said.

Juniors fall
After the Upper Keys Juniors
battled Kendall Hammocks to a
draw in the age 13-14 District 8
tournament Saturday, everything
came unglued in the first extra
inning.
Kendall wound up winning,
20-4, but coach Joe Joyce said the
final score leaves the wrong
impression.
"We were tied at 4-4 in the
seventh inning," Joyce said.

District 8 Little League Tournament. The Upper Keys

"Then in the top of the eighth,
nothing went right for us.
Everything [Kendall] hit fell into
the gaps."
Jordan Izaguirre pitched six
strong innings for the Upper
Keys before being lifted under
the pitch-count rule.
Brandon Joyce's double and
singles by Tyler Hudson and
Izaguirre sparked a two-run rally

for the Upper Keys in the first.
By the sixth, Kendall owned a
4-2 lead. Singles by -Jimmy
Rhyne and Bill Davis helped the
Keys score the tying runs. A
chance to take the lead ended
when a Keys runner was caught
at the plate.
A planned morning start was
shoved back three hours because
of a scheduling mix-up that saw


Kendall arrive at Founders Park
late.
The loss ended the Keys tour-
nament run.

Doral rallies
The Upper Keys team in the
Age 10-11 district tournament
was one out away from sealing a
10-9 win over Doral, but Doral
rallied for six late runs and a 15-
10 win.
"That was a heartbreaker,"
Keys coach Cris Beaty said after
the Monday loss at the Key Largo
Community Park. "It's difficult to
lose a game like that."
The Upper Keys got behind 2-
0 in the first but stormed back
with three runs. Dave DiMaggio


doubled and scored in the rally.
Jake Beaty and Tucker Woods
also scored.
Second baseman Eddy
Quezada received the game ball
for his defensive work and timely
hits in the Upper Keys' two games. -
"The all-star experience has
been great for these kids," the
coach said. "We expect to see
most of them playing in the
Majors tournament next year."

Fishing fun fills the Fourth


Lots of boats
means safety
should rule
- Another holiday weekend is
upon us. This is the big one for the
summer and we can expect quite a
few visitors down not only for the
Fourth of July festivities but also
for the fishing.
The dolphin offshore have been
plentiful and the hottest areas have
been around 12 miles from the
reef. This has been consistent with
fish 5 to 9 pounds, and there's also
been a scattering of big fish.
What about the wahoo?
They've been running fairly well
along the 300-foot range for those
usingg fast-trolled lures.
The tarpon are still around the
usual haunts; the bridge channels
.and flats are covered with them.
They've been eating pinfish with
ease as of late.

Have a safe 4th
On the Fourth of July, many
boaters will watch the fireworks
from their vessels; this .is pretty
unique. If you out were there last
year, whether off the Upper,
Middle or Lower Keys, you know
just how difficult maneuvering
can be if something happens. In
Marathon, a storm last year sent


boats scrambling everywhere.
The same thing usually happens
as the grand finale goes off every
year.
Many of these boaters are not
used to being out at night. This is
evident from the lack of proper
lighting on the boats or in some
cases, the lack of any lighting at
all. Others assume you will see
them or they will see you and then
turn on the lights. This is not only
foolish, but very dangerous.
Use caution if you are going
by boat and use all the proper
lighting. And beforehand, if you
don't use them often, check to
ensure they work properly.
When the fireworks are over,
don't try to be the first one head-
ing home; that just causes a log-
jam Give it another 10 minutes or
so and let things clear out to make
the ride home more relaxing -

Wednesday, July 2,2008 *29


Take it slow


NAVARRO / From 28

first place, to relax and enjoy-the
evening.
Remember that in Marathon,
the Seven Mile Bridge isn't
lighted. Nor are the power poles.
Ensure you pass through beyond
the seventh opening in the old
bridge and you should be OK.
Otherwise, Flagler's concrete
might not be very forgiving.
And finally, if you haven't


. heard, we have moved down the
street about half a mile to 3740
Overseas Highway, Marathon.
We're still on the bayside, just
next to a place where we can
really eat well, Annette's.
We'll have a grand opening
as soon as, well, as soon as we
make a grand.

Capt. Dave Navarro'owns the
World Class Angler in Marathon
and captains the charter boat
'Dave's Dream.'


Hemandez wins second and third


SUTPHIN / From 27

Branch on the boat Compromise
and. landed the largest wahoo,
11.4 pounds.
The hard-luck story went to
the crew of Getting Tail, which
managed to lose a gaff attached
to a bull dolphin estimated at
more than 50 pounds. And obvi-
ously, it was angry dolphin.
This is the second such story
in consecutive months this hap-


opened to the seasoned charter
crew; last month, it was in the
Bull & Cow tournament. If you
fish long enough, things like that
happen.
There are always good stories
coming from all tournaments,
and the women dominating the
Burdines contest was only one of
them.
The other feel-good story was
that Ely Hernandez of Marathon
won both second and third in the
junior division with 22.6- and


22.4-pound dolphins. The 14-"
year-old is one huge avid fisher-
man, according to Randy Kroeck
the tournament director.
"Ely just loves to fish. He's
been hanging around Burdines
his whole life and will never pass
up a fishing trip. We are very
proud of him," he says.
Guys, not only do we have
women anglers to contend with,
but it looks like junior anglers, as
well.
