Serious collisions on land and

note.
A Fort Myers man was killed
Wednesday night when two 34-
foot boats crashed violently off
Coco Plum Beach in the Middle
Keys.
Three people were flown by
helicopter to the Ryder Trauma
Center in Miami after the colli-
sion, which happened around
8:25 p.m. Four others were taken
to Fishermen's Hospital in
Marathon for treatment.
Rick Tatum, 48, of Fort Myers
was piloting a Hydra Sports boat
traveling parallel to Coco Plum
Beach when it was struck a few
hundred yards offshore by an
Intrepid boat returning from open
water, according to initial
accounts from investigating
Florida Fish and.Wildlife Con-
servation Commission officers.
Both boats were powered by
twin outboard engines, and each
had four people on board. None
are believed to be Monroe
County residents.
Arvid Peterson of Palm Beach
County, operator of the Intrepid,
remains in critical condition with
head injuries and broken bones,

This is the Big Pine home of Marc Gonsalves, who was rescued by the Colombian army this week.
He and two other defense contractors were held hostage for five years by the FARC rebel group.
Thursday, some of his neighbors were wondering how quickly he'd be coming home to the Keys.

No raises likely
for deputies
and firefighters
By ALYSON CREAN
acrean@keynoter.com

Monroe County deputies and
firefighters might have to forego
raises in the coming year to save
taxpayers $1.03 million in fiscal
2009.
Wednesday, the County
Commission took its first look at
some proposals to make up an
estimated $11 million shortfall
expected in next year's budget.
"Deputies have already
worked nearly two years with no
increase in salary," said Lee
Cowart, a Sheriff's Office deputy

Couple facing
more theft counts

A Sugarloaf Key couple
already facing theft-related
felonies each has had three more
charges added on.
James McDorman, 46, and his
wife Stacey, 43, on Wednesday
were charged with three felony
counts of burglary for allegedly
breaking into occupied rooms
June 15 and 17 at the Sugarloaf
Lodge. In all three cases, the
occupants were asleep when
their wallets, cash and other
items were stolen. In one case,
the victini chased the suspect out
the door and watched as he got
into a pickup, which he described
as a gray Chevrolet with a stan-
dard cab, short bed and alu-
minum topper.
Deputy Becky Herrin from
the Monroe County Sheriff's
Office says the Sugarloaf Lodge
owner told deputies he'd recently
fired Stacey McDorman and sus-
pected she might be involved in
the crimes. Later, Detective
Henry DelValle found that she
and her husband own a truck like
the one the witness described.
In June, they were charged
with burglary, theft and receiving
,stolen property for allegedly bur-
glarizing a storage shed. -


and president of the Keys chapter
of the Fraternal Order of Police.
"There are a significant number
of deputies seeking law enforce-
ment careers elsewhere not
because they want to, but because
they have to."
Sheriff Rick Roth says he, too,
is concerned about holding back
on cost-of-living increases.
"Our turnover rate is about 18
percent," said Roth. "We already
have 50 deputies living in
Miami-Dade County and driving
to Monroe County. If we contin-
ue not to give raises, they'll find
other jobs."
Deputies' annual salaries
range from $34,000 to $58,000.
No raises in the Sheriff's Office
would mean a savings of
$808,265.
Roth oversees about 475
employees; 180 are members of
the Fraternal Order of Police; 170
are corrections officers and mem-
bers of the Teamsters Union.
Another 125 employees are non-
union. They likely won't see rais-
es, either.
Ryan Cowart, Lee's son who's
also a deputy, pleaded with the
commission to reconsider with-
holding raises.
"We're faced with staying or
going to Miami-Dade, where we
could receive two to three times
what we do here," he said. "We
put our lives on the line for the
community every day."
Firefighters got a raise last
year, acting Monroe County Fire
Rescue Chief Jim Callahan said.
"They were in the third year of
a three-year contract," he said.
"But what they make is low com-
pared to southeast and southwest
Florida. In fact, I just had one
resign [this week] to go to work
in Miami-Dade. The pay is better,
the benefits are better."
There are 60 firefighters in
unincorporated Monroe spread
from Stock Island to Tavernier.
Salaries range from $32,000 to
$49,000 annually. If firefighters
don't get raises in the fiscal year
starting Oct. 1, it will save
$225,000.

drive from Miami-Dade,"

Habitat closes
on sixth condo

Habitat for Humanity of Key
West and the Lower Keys pur-
chased another foreclosed condo-
minium in Key West Tuesday
from Key West Bank.
The purchase marks the sixth
unit the nonprofit has acquired
the past two weeks at Fogarty
Avenue .and First Street. The
complex, at 1830 Fogarty Ave.,
has seven one-bedroom units


ranging from 411 square feet to
726 square feet, Habitat
Executive Director Bob Calhoun
says.
The complex has six fore-
closed units. Habitat bought the
first five from First State Bank of
the Florida Keys.
Key West Bank President Phil
Hogue said his bank discounted
the condo from $150,000 to
$115,000. It's and will be reno-
vated.
"It's ready to go," Hogue said.


ACCIDENTS / From 1

Hydra Sports boat caused exten-
sive damage to the console and
controls. A passenger apparently
managed to take the wheel and
aim the boat toward shore.
The vessel was traveling so
.fast it ran several dozen yards
onto shore, striking a gumbo-
limbo tree and splitting it.
Officers are investigating the
possibility that one of the boats
may have been running without
its navigation lights.

Lower Keys crash
A black SUV traveling north
in the southbound lane of U.S. 1
struck a tractor trailer in a head-
on collision at 2:30 a.m.
Thursday on Cudjoe Key.
The accident near Bow
Channel Bridge at mile marker
20.5 closed both lanes of U.S. 1
for nearly three hours while
debris and diesel fuel were
cleaned from the roadway.
Javier Antomarchy, 19, of Key
West was driving a 2003 black
Ford SUV north when he
attempted to pass a 2002 Jeep,
according to a Florida Highway
Patrol report filed by Cpl. Gary
Dunick.


The SUV struck the back of
the Jeep, driven by Jamie
O'Donnell, 38, of Bensalem, Pa.,
and then slammed into the south-
bound tractor trailer.
Antomarchy was flown by
rescue ambulance to Ryder
Trauma Center in Miami.
Total damages were estimated
at $80,000.
Jeep passenger Michael
Quinnelly, 32, of Marathon, driv-
er O'Donnell and truck driver
Paul McGinty, 43, of Kissimmee
reportedly escaped without seri-
ous injuries.
No charges were filed, pend-
ing additional investigation and
the results of blood tests on
Antomarchy.

Boaters rescued
On Tuesday, crewmen from
the Marathon Coast Guard
Station rescued four people from
a 23-foot boat floundering about
14 miles south of Vaca Key.
A boat from the Marathon sta-
tion answered the 10:15 a.m. call.
When the crew reached the
scene, they saw waves washing
over the private vessel's stem.
Four people aboard the small
boat were taken onto the Coast
Guard boat.
Guardsmen used a portable


water pump to empty the 23-foot
boat and were able to keep it
afloat for a return to shore.
No injuries were reported.
Marine enforcement officers
and road-patrol officers are out in
force this weekend since large
crowds were expected to visit the
Keys for the three-day holiday
weekend.

Keys Opinion


State tightens belt

on storm hardening

The state giveth, and the state taketh away.
Launched almost exactly one year ago, the My Safe Florida
Home program designed to harden homes from hurricane
threats is going bye-bye.
The program offered free wind inspections to homeowners
who qualified. Even better, grants of up to $5,000 to do the
improvements were funded by the Legislature back when times
were good.
But times aren't so good and the belt tightening has begun.
After spending an estimated $250 million, some skeptics said
the effort barely helped 1 percent of eligible homesteaded prop-
erties.
The idea underlying the program made sense, since harden-
ing the structural integrity of homes can significantly reduce
the risk of damage and the cost of repairs.
Lawmakers rationalized this as one way to eventually lower
windstorm insurance rates, especially if homeowners across
the state embraced it the way that many South Florida proper-
ty owners did after living through Hurricane Andrew in 1992.
For all the fanfare, not many Keys property owners got to
benefit from the program. And efforts last year to add manufac-
tured homes, multi-family homes and even commercial prop-
erties went nowhere.
Former Gov. Jeb Bush was a big proponent of the My Safe
Florida Home program and even lobbied Washington for fed-
eral help. Congress actually approved, $100 million to help
Florida victims of the 2005 hurricanes.
But that money didn't wind up inthe Safe Home program as
recovery from the spate of hurricanes in 2004 and 2005 sucked
up every available federal dollar for those who needed imme-
diate help to rebuild.
Hardening homes against the next storm simply got short
shrift.
In a related move this week, the Florida Cabinet reluctantly
purchased catastrophe insurance to help insure the state's own
Hurricane Catastrophe Fund.
Berkshire Hathaway, owned by famed investment maven
Warren Buffet, was the sole bidder and will be paid $224 mil-
lion to guarantee up to $4 billion in bonds if the state finds itself
facing lots of claims.
In case you didn't know, the state's Hurricane Catastrophe
Fund has reserves of about $8 billion. Claims just from the
2004 hurricanes topped $16 billion, so that makes risk under-
writers nervous.
Gov. Charlie Crist defended the move .to buy this type of
hedge insurance before any major storms threaten.
You can bet it wouldn't be available at any price once the hur-
ricane warnings are posted. By then it's too late.

County Commission put us in this budget mess


EDITOR:
In regard to last Saturday's Keynoter editori-
al, "Empty piggy bank means cuts are real," if
the county closes libraries, if it cuts down the
mass transit that's in so much need today with
the gas prices rising to $4.14 and going up each
day, these are the most idiotic cuts I've ever
heard of.
To quote the editorial from this newspaper;
"Unfortunately, there's little experience in these
parts for reductions of this magnitude. That's


because for the past three years the county has
been dipping into reserves to balance the budg-
et. Well, that piggy bank in empty."
I have two questions for the elected officials.
Who's been breaking the piggy bank and are
they out of their skulls? I hope for their own
sakes they manage their own bank accounts bet-
ter than they've been managing our tax money.
Who exactly was in charge of this fiasco?

Commissioners are driving the Keys into the ground


EDITOR:
The great minds, that have bankrupted
Monroe County have perfected a delusional
state of mind, whereby their feeble intellects
and inflated egos blind them to the harm
they perpetrate upon the people of the
Florida Keys. If it doesn't involve rezoning
a pristine undisturbed hammock so that it
can be torn down for the sake of inserting a
densely compressed "affordable" housing
project, they haven't a fresh or creative idea
among them.
It appears that these county commission-
ers, along with their county attorney and
staff, actually believe they can render
redeemable guidance and insight to the citi-
zens they persist in injuring.
The former mayor of Monroe County
gave his mayoralty to another commissioner,
thus giving us a two-term mayor who never
earned a single vote in this county. His only
allegiance is to the development interests of
the individual whose recommendation was
required for his appointment.
Orchestrated under this politician's direc-
tion, the County Commission has brought us
to financial ruin and devalued the quality of
our lives.
Flooding the real estate market with con-
tinued development will further reduce the
value of our homes while substantially
increasing the cost to taxpayers, who will
have to pay for all the services and resources
required by these new residents.
Nationally, there are 1 million homes that
have been foreclosed. There are 10 million
homeowners that are in some stage of fore-
closure, and the value of an average home

New KeysNet.com a one-stop Keys resource


Welcome to our soft opening.
Taking a cue from the restaurant
trade, we opened a new informa-
tion destination this week at
www.KeysNet.com.
Without fanfare, we invited a
few friends and customers to test
ride this information portal start-
ing July 1 before we opened to
traffic from near and far.
Today, we're opening the flood-
gates welcome aboard.
KeysNet.com is combining the
editorial and advertising strengths
of the Florida Keys Keynoter, Key
West Keynoter, The Reporter, Keys
Sunday and Fishing the Florida
Keys.
Keynoter.com, which was a pio-
neer in the Keys for migrating con-
tent to the Web, grew to be one of
the most visited Keys-based Web
sites in its first decade.
KeysReporter.com, which
launched some years later, has
brought new strengths and depth of
coverage and convenience to
online readers, along with Keys
Sunday's real estate, business and
environmental coverage on Keys
Sunday.com.
Now, rather than force our Web
readers to hunt for multiple sites,
we've combined all that and more
in our new address, KeysNet:
With this new, more robust pub-
lishing platform, we are moving
beyond the "newspaper on the
Web" model in ways that speak to
the needs of our readers and adver-


tisers for more
choices, more
opportunities.
You will dis-
cover, for
example, alive
weather radar
feature and
map of tropical
activity updat-
ed daily by the
National -
Wayne Markham Hurricane
Keynoter Publisher Center, and
Keys tide
tables provided by AccuWeather.
And recognizing the global
appeal of the Keys as a tourist des-
tination, KeysNet.com will expand
information and resources for peo-
ple interested in seeing, learning
about or visiting the Keys.
Even before our transition to this
new site, we were attracting online
readership from around the world,
especially those drawn to the spe-
cial attraction of the coral reefs
that lie offshore and Everglades
National Park at ourmainland
front door.
Visitors from Southeast Asian
nations, the Pacific islands, South
Africa, Europe and Canada all vis-
ited our site to learn about fishing
and diving in the Florida Keys
National Marine Sanctuary, which
boasts 55 species of coral, 60
species of sponges, 220 species of
reef fish and ranks among the
world's most dived underwater

ecological preserves.
Our coverage of the sanctuary
from its founding, and ongoing
efforts to learn more about coral
bleaching, fisheries management
and nearshore water quality, has
provided a valuable tool for infor-
mation sharing.
KeysNet will expand on that
legacy, adding more environmental
content more about green liv-
ing, alternative energy, recycling
and reuse, providing a one-stop
resource for both local and world-
wide readers.
KeysNet-has been developed on
the McClatchy Interactive Web
platform, which hosts news and
information sites across the coun-
try. This shared resource gives our
readers a vast new storehouse of
information we could not have
provided in the past and we're
excited about this expansion.
At a time when most headlines
are about the decline of newspa-
pers, we feel privileged to be
growing our content and service.
Without giving away too much
personal information, I got my
start in the newspaper business in
tie days of hot type and when

most households got two, some-
times three, newspapers delivered
daily.
We didn't have television in our
home until I was in elementary
school and then only two channels
were available and programming
was not 24 hours a day, seven days
a week.
In my first job, as a printer's
apprentice, I melted used type and
cast lead pigs that fed linotype
machines. These wonders of 19th
Century ingenuity were considered
high-tech for their day. I learned to
read type upside down and back-
wards in the locked chase before
going on press.
It all sounds so old fashioned in
today's age of the Internet, when
words seem so ethereal and zing
through the ether via the World
Wide Web.
But one principal remains con-
stant from that era to today: Words
are important. And what we do
with them even more so.
Our commitment to provide
essential news and information, to
serve as watchdog on government
and the public purse, and to enter-
taini and educate will not waiver.

Bull: Time to expand city


Sunshine, -
Duck and Conch
keys are eyed
By RYAN McCARTHY
rmccarthy@keynoter.com

Marathon Vice Mayor Chris
Bull feels the city is ready to
expand its boundaries nine years


after incorporation.
Bull plans to pursue annexing
Duck, Conch and Sunshine keys
when his term on the City
Council comes to a close this
November.
The three Keys have a com-
bined taxable value this fiscal
year of more than $456 million,
which, based on Marathon's mill-

age rate, would have generated
$649,824 in property taxes this
year.
Duck Key residents declined
to become part of Marathon when
the incorporation movement
started in the late 1990s. Among
other conditions Duck Key resi-
dents wanted but couldn't get was
a guaranteed spot on the City
Council.
Voters created Marathon in
1999.
"Now that we're a mature city
... people in other areas want to be
a part of the city of Marathon. We
need to go and explore this," Bull
said. "Preliminary numbers I did
last year said it would be a win-
win situation. It would lower
millage for people in the city" as
well as the other three Keys.
Bull said Sunshine Key, an RV
park on Ohio Key at the west end
of the Seven Mile Bridge, has
shown particular interest in the

How much more money?

Following is how much money Duck Key, Conch Key
and Sunshine Key would have contributed to Marathon's
general fund this year if they were part of the city, based on
the city's 1.4243 millage rate.
Duck Key: Current overall assessed value:
$384,822.976. What that would raise in city taxes: $548,103.
Conch Key: Current overall assessed value:
$39.461,341. What that would raise in city taxes: $56,204.

past.
"It's been over a year since I
talked to anybody directly over
there, but it's in their best interest
to be a part of us as far as redevel-
opment and it's been known for
awhile they are interested," he
said. "Personally, I've been wait-
ing for an opportunity to work to
get all three areas in the city and I
think it would benefit all of us."
Duck Key Realtor Kristen
Brenner said when Marathon was
created, Duck Key residents
wanted no part of incorporation.
"Especially with the pains of a
new city, it's easier to be on the
outside watching than it is to be a
part of it," Brenner said.
Duck Key Property Owners
Association head Bill McHale
refused to comment for this story.
Mayor Pete Worthington said
he's been asked about incorpora-
tion by three separate Duck Key
citizen groups.
"I told them I can't help them
with the campaign but I would
welcome them with open arms if
they pursued it," Worthington
said. "The benefit to them is
they'd be a part of the city and
there would certainly be a tax
benefit. They wouldn't be


charged a [county] fire and ambu-
lance millage of 1.12."
Fire and ambulance charges
for Marathon residents are
included in the city millage rate.
Conch Key resident Kirk
Meltzer said he feels his key's
fisherman-heavy population
would likely resist a change in
government.
"They just want to be left
alone as much as they can be,"
Meltzer said.
Councilman Mike Cinque said
the annexation of Sunshine Key
would raise significant police and
fire concerns.
"I'm not sure we want to be on
the other side of the bridge with
the cost of police and fire," he
said. "You have to be careful
what's in the package, what kind
of services you provide."
Councilwoman Marilyn
Tempest said she'd listen if resi-
dents from the three Keys came
calling, but added Marathon "has
to be careful about stretching
itself too thin."
"My own opinion is if people
want to join Marathon, they'll
come and ask," Councilwoman
Marilyn Tempest said. "If I were
Duck Key, I would be asking."

Crist vetoes seagrass bill


By KEVIN WADLOW
Senior Staff Writer
kwadlow@keynoter.com

Marine conservationists
campaigned for a new state
law on seagrass but cheered
this week when Gov. Charlie
Crist vetoed it.
A late addition tacked onto
the bill, CS/HB 7059, shortly
before the Legislature passed
it this past spring opened the
door to seagrass destruction
by waterfront developers in
exchange for promises of mit-
igation.
"The governor did the right
thing for Florida and our envi-
ronment," said Joe Murphy,
state director for. the Gulf
Restoration Network and a
member of the Florida Coastal
and Ocean Coalition.
The bill originally aimed to
protect environmentally
important seagrass beds by
imposing a $1,000 fine on
boaters who cause significant
seagrass damage.
A late amendment author-
ized the Florida Cabinet to
allow seagrass destruction on
state-owned sea bottom caused
by marina channeling and
waterfront development if the
developers took part in a sea-
grass-transplant effort.
"These important ecosys-
tems are too valuable to risk,"
Crist wrote in his Monday
veto message.
He noted, "I am concerned
the long-term success of artifi-
cially created seagrass beds
has not been conclusively
established. The likely result
of seagrass mitigation banks
would be the net destruction
of seagrass beds...."
Paul Johnson, president of
Reef Relief, said an existing
state wetland-mitigation pro-
gram shows re-creating a
functioning ecosystem is high-
ly difficult.
"Transplanting seagrass is
still more of an art than a sci-
ence," Johnson said. "The
ability to mitigate seagrass
destruction raised a lot of con-


cerns in the. environmental
community.... Even if you
replace seagrass beds, the
structure may be there but it
may not reproduce the com-
plex natural functions."
Reef Relief of Key West is
a member of the Florida
Coastal and Ocean Coalition.
"It's all one system, from
the Everglades and mangroves
to the seagrass out to the deep

reef," Johnson said.
Peter Frezza, research man-
ager for Audubon of Florida's
Tavernier Science Center,
said, "Our whole Keys ecosys-
tem of Florida Bay and
nearshore waters is driven by
the lush, rich seagrass beds we
have here."
Fish species critical to
Monroe County's commercial
and recreational fishing indus-
tries all need healthy seagrass
"If we don't consider issues
like this with seagrass, eventu-
ally it will lead to long-term
problems," Frezza said. "If
we're serious about protecting
our fishing-based economy,
we need to realize that protect-
ing seagrasses is important."
Monroe County has more
than 1.4 million acres of sea-
grass bottom, according to
information from the Seagrass
Outreach Partnership.


In his veto letter, Crist
pointed out that language in
the bill's amendment could
have led to requests to destroy
other sensitive environments
- including mangroves and
corals in return for mitiga-
tion pledges.
"Such destruction does not
pass the constitutional public
interest test," Crist wrote.
The governor said he will
work with legislators to revive
beneficial aspects of the sea-
grass bill in 2009.
Florida Coastal and Ocean
Coalition member groups also
praised the governor's signing
of bills that ban casino boats
from emptying their waste
tanks offshore, and put the
state on a path to end the off-
shore pumping of \treated
wastewater. \

Kelly accused
of filing
false report
By KYLE TEAL
kteal@keynoter.com

A Key West police officer has
been arrested and suspended,
charged with filing a false report
stemming from a May 28 crash in
his cruiser.
Kelly Thomas, 52, has been
with the department for four
-years. He was arrested and
relieved of duty June 23; authori-
ties wouldn't give a reason why


the arrest wasn't made public
until Thursday.
In addition to the criminal
charge against him, the depart-
ment's Internal Affairs Depart-
ment is investigating whether
Thomas lied about the incident to
his commanding officers.
While under suspension, he'll
continue being paid. He earns
$54,061 annually.
Thomas was working off-duty
security at the Best Western Key
Ambassador Resort Inn at 3755
S. Roosevelt Blvd. when he
steered into a curb and blew out
the front and back tires on the left

says.
The report says he was driving
the police car north on South
Roosevelt and was going to make
a left turn into the resort when he
saw "the glare of blue emergency
lights quickly approaching...."
The distraction caused him to
swerve to "avoid a collision and
[he] struck the concrete curb,"
Thomas told investigating officer
Kuniko Keohane, who wrote the
crash report.
"There was no damage to the
body or visible damage to the
undercarriage of vehicle," it says.
The report says an officer was
notified at 2:10 a.m. and arrived
at 2:45, and that a city mechanic
responded and swapped out the
tires.
Department policy allows
officers to use their city vehicles
while doing extra work for pri-

But with a tight budget, the
city is taking a second look at the
use of cruisers and what it costs to
operate and maintain them. That
includes the take-home policy.

Cuts ID'd, more possible


By ALYSON CREAN
acrean@keynoter.com

While a packed room of Keys
residents made clear what servic-
es they don't want cut from next
year's county budget, there was
little objection to the specter of
higher property taxes.
That was obvious Wednesday
when the Monroe County
Commission got its first look at
proposed spending for 2009.
County Administrator Roman
Gastesi said it's going to take a
combination of cutbacks and
higher taxes to avoid an estimat-
ed $11 million revenue shortfall.
He says residents in unincor-
porated Monroe could see their
taxes go up anywhere from $200
to $600 annually.
The commission seemed to
sign on to Gastesi's plan, which
includes recommendations to sell
the county's emergency response
helicopter, withhold raises for
deputies and firefighters, and
reorganize departments to cut
some positions.
The reorganization would do
away with the director of com-
munity services, the affordable
housing coordinator and the com-
munity services executive assis-
tant.
His proposed cuts would save
$5.2 million in 2009.
The initial proposed budget is
$85.87 million, up from around
$83 million this year. The
increase is because Gastesi wants
to build up the county's reserves,
which were depleted from over-
spending the past several years.
A final page in Gastesi's ini-
tial budget lists what he calls
drastic measures that, if other
cuts aren't made and taxes aren't
increased, might happen.
It was those measures -
ranging from closing libraries,
parks and even the county-run
assisted living center .on Stock
Island that brought many peo-
ple to the podium at the
Marathon Government Center.
Marathon Councilwoman
Marilyn Tempest said she's wor-
ried about libraries closing
despite Gastesi's assurance that
isn't being considered.
"I'm not totally reassured, and
the fact that we don't close some-
thing doesn't mean we don't
slash it," Tempest said. "We need
to agree to maintain a level of
service on some of these .key
functions."

The largest cuts


Among cuts County
Administrator Roman
Gastesi proposes for the
2009 county budget-
-* $1.8 million by elimi-
nating the Sheriff's Office's
TraumaStar medical, heli-
copter.
$808,265 by foregoing
raises for Sheriff's Office
employees.
$596,244 in reserves for
employee health and life
insurance.


bed Bayshore Manor, the state's
only county-run assisted living
facility, pleaded to keep it open.
"Each one of us has a physical
or mental handicap that does not
allow us to live at home,"
Micheline Bane said. "We ask
you to keep it open. We have no
place to go."
Others worried that cutting
back even one hour a day on
Monroe County Transit might
have life-altering effects. Cindy


$454,893 from the
Growth Management
budget, including $300,000
in legal fees.
$325,000 by reducing
Monroe County Transit serv-
ice by one hour a day.
$299,285 by eliminat-
ing the jobs of one division
director, an administrative
assistant and the affordable
housing coordinator.
$225,000 by foregoing
raises for firefighters.


McKnight, a blind Grassy Key
resident, has been using the serv-
ice since 1993.
"It allows me independence
since I do not drive and I don't
think anyone wants to let me bor-
row their car," she.said. "I'm able
to work, do my volunteer work,
get to medical appointments and
get my two children where they
need to be."
Though he agreed to move
forward with Gastesi's sugges-

tions, Mayor Mario Di Gennaro
said he doesn't like the idea of
giving up the Sheriff's Office's
TraumaStar medical helicopter
(it was used twice Wednesday
night to take a combined three
people to-Ryder Trauma Center
in Miami after a Middle Keys
boat crash).
Di Gennaro said he's afraid
LifeNet, a private for-profit com-
pany working out of Key West,
might not stick around if the


Keys prove unprofitable
(Thursday morning, LifeNet had
its own flight to Ryder, transport-
ing a Lower Keys car-crash vic-
tim).
The county has until July 28
to finalize a tax rate and get it to
the Monroe County Property
Appraiser's Office.
The commission will get a
formal budget presentation at 2
p.m. July 14 at the Harvey
Government Center in Key West.

The hard dollars

County Administrator Roman Gastesi proposes a com-
bination of service cuts and tax increases to offset an
expected $11 million shortfall in property tax revenue in
2009. He says the following figures are rough estimates to

on next year's tax bill.

$350,000 $1,418 $1,615 $200

FKAA upgrades readers


A Electronics
are reducing


drive times


By KYLE TEAL
kteal@keynoter.com


The Florida Keys Aqueduct
Authority is doing what it can to
reduce the number of vehicles
that travel Keys roads.
New handheld meter readers
are already significantly cutting
the routes many Aqueduct
Authority employees drive to
gather monthly water usage
readings; the routes might even-
end altogether.
It's this simple: Under the old
method, which is being phased
out, employees had to get out of
their cars and physically open
the meters to check every cus-
tomer's water consumption
numbers.
Now, using the handheld
readers that pick up electronic
signals from the meters, they just
have to drive by within 3,500
feet and the numbers are auto-


matically read.
Already, the automated pro-
gram has reduced the need for 11
trucks and 11 employees, agency
spokeswoman Colleen Tagle
said.
"We're not laying off peo-
ple," she said. Rather, the jobs
are being eliminated through
attrition.
The advanced technology
was installed Tuesday on meters
on Sunset Key, right off Key
West Harbor. Those units transit
the water consumption informa-
tion directly to the Key West
office at 1100 Kennedy Drive.
Before, Aqueduct Authority
staff had to take a ferry to check
all the meters of its Sunset Key
customers.
"Prior to automated meter
readers, we would spend eight
manned days a month gathering
data" Keyswide, says Carl
Brewster, information technolo-
gy director for the water utility.
"This helps us keep better track,
minute to minute. We have
detected leaks as soon as we put


in this new systeni."
Key West is already com-
pletely updated, so one employ-
ee can check all of the island's
meters in 24 hours a good
thing considering the need to cut
costs, staff says.
Brewster said many Lower
Keys meters are already fitted
with the automated readers, and
that the Ocean Reef Club in
North Key Largo should be
upgraded with the data collec-
tion units by August or
September. According to staff in
Marathon, the automated readers
haven't been installed and prob-
ably won't be within the year.
Beyond the latest technology
- the handheld readers is
antennas installed directly in the
meters that "shoot" the water
usage numbers to the Aqueduct
Authority's local servers at its
offices in Key West, Marathon
and Tavernier. Down the road,
that's going to be the way to go,
Brewster said.
Those devices cost about
$6,000 each and will elimi-
nate the need to drive anywhere
to read meters.

Vasil tries again on sewers


He looks at
Islamorada
as a model
By RYAN McCARTHY
rmccarthy@keynoter.com


Marathon City Councilman
Don Vasil says that with
Islamorada pursuing similar leg-
islation, he wants to revisit allow-
ing property owners additional
time to hook up to central sewers
past the state's July 2010 dead-
line to do so.
In March, Vasil proposed such
a resolution but it died without a
second.
But in Islamorada the Village
Council gave Manager Ken
Fields the go-ahead to work with
the state Department of Environ-

Keys briefs


Bartus files for
Marathon council

Former Marathon Mayor
John Bartus filed paperwork
Thursday to seek a fourth term
on the Marathon City Council.
Bartus served three consecu-
tive two-year terms starting in
2000, including two years as
mayor and three as vice mayor.
"We're going through tough
times and we're getting ready to
implement the largest public
works project in Marathon since
the Overseas Highway," Bartus
said of the city's ongoing sewer
construction. "I'm not going to
need on-the-job training to do
the job."
Bartus also cited his experi-
ence as a business owner
"We need to have people on
the council with a good business
background to ensure the city's
future," he said.
Bartus is the sixth candidate
to file for November's election.
Incumbents Pete Worthington
and Marilyn Tempest, along
with Ginger Snead; Kevin
Woodland and "Bicycle" Joan
Nelson, already filed.
Vice Mayor Chris Bull says
he's not running for re-election.
Candidate qualifying is from
noon Aug. 5 to noon Aug. 12. If
qualifying by the pQtition ipethod,
rather -than paying 'a filing fee,
petitions are due by noon July 8.

mental Protection on a plan to
keep owners of on-site sewage
treatment plants from paying
twice first to upgrade their
existing plant and again to con-
nect to the centralized sewer sys-
tem when it comes online.
The Village Council has final
say on what Fields pursues with
DEP. But if council members like
what they hear and DEP
agrees on-site plant owners
could save thousands of dollars.
DEP has sent 256 letters to
package-plant owners county-
wide requiring compliance with
advanced standards when their
plant permits are renewed
"My view was- that once the
city made the commitment to
move forward in totality, the
responsibility should now be
placed on the city and not the
package-plant owners or the resi-
dential property owners. I would-
n't expect support for the whole
package ... but I'll take part of the
pie if not the whole thing," Vasil
said.
Islamorada's plan calls for a
one-year extension from DEP to
meet advanced standards, provid-
ed package-plant owners make a
commitment to tie into the sewer
system and pay a hookup deposit
to be held in. escrow until it
comes online.
"We'll continue negotiations
with DEP and try to get the pack-

age-plant operators off the hook
for paying twice. It shifts the
onus on the village to get the con-
struction done on time," Fields
said.
Marathon City Manager
Clyde Burnett said DEP
Environmental Administrator
Gus Rios sent him the same
response to Fields' inquiry and
that Rios indicated the same
agreement may be possible in
Marathon. Burnett estimated
there to be 65 package plants in
the city.
City Councilman Mike Cinque
said Islamorada's plan isn't a
good fit for Marathon because it's
closer than Islamorada is to hav-
ing a citywide system.
"Every package plant owner
in Marathon will be assessed and
paying by October 2009. A lot of
them are being assessed as we
speak," Cinque said. "I don't
want to look like we're not stick-
ing with our commitment."
City Councilwoman Marilyn
Tempest said she would support
the Islamorada plan in Marathon,
mainly because plant owners will
foot the bill.

Cafe gets redevelopment approval


Parking cited
as a problem
for the site
By KYLE TEAL
kteal@keynoter.com

Fifteen public meetings
later, and Key West property
owner Jim Marsh finally has
the city's go-ahead to redevelop
the Conch Town Cafe and its
two adjoining apartments at
Petronia and Thomas streets.
The cafe. will become 14-
seat shop plans for exactly
what are still in the works -
with a porch and new apart-
ments, one transient and one
full-time rental.
The Key West City
Commission approved the plan
at its Tuesday meeting, and the
commission, acting as the


Board of Adjustment, passed it
again Wednesday evening with
a barrage of questions, many of
them expressing concerns over
parking.
Ultimately, the project
passed with the conditions that
Marsh not exceed 14 seats in
the business, doesn't increase
the food consumption area and
that he closes by 10 p.m.
Marsh's wife Nancy told the
board she thought it was bizarre
that people who would be
affected by the change the most
- those who live in the neigh-
borhood didn't respond to
publicly posted notices about
the project with concerns about
parking.
"They know my husband,
and they know it's going to be
an asset to the community,"
Marsh said.

Wednesday, the Board of
Adjustment also expressed con-
cerns over compliance with the
Americans with Disabilities
Act, which mandates disabled
customers have proper access
to facilities. Marsh's plans
don't call for an ADA parking
space.
"It would be my understand-
ing that it would require an
ADA spot for the business, but
not the apartments," city
Building Official John
Woodson said.


According to project manag-
er Ty Symroski, the two
planned parking spaces will be
made available to the residents
of the apartments. Symroski
also said ADA Coordinator Jim
Malcom reviewed the plan and
didn't object.
Marsh needed three code
variances dealing with parking
and for a porch planned for the
site.
"I think the city has overre-
acted to variances," Symroski
says.


City planner Amy Kimball-
Murley said the unique inter-
section, which is congested and
designed primarily for pedestri-
an traffic, makes it unique.
Symroski said he is not sure
when Marsh will start work on
the new shop and apartments
but he is anxious to get started.
The two tenants living in the
current apartments will have to
leave, but Symroski says Marsh
will allow them ample time to
find new places to live.


Commission OKs DOT funds


Not all agree
with proposal
for Atlantic
By KYLE TEAL
kteal@keynoter.com


The Key West City
Commission on Tuesday vote to
accept from the Florida-
Department of Transportation
$563,862 to improve Atlantic
Boulevard.
Only the improvements aren't
so welcome to some.
The city proposes to install
sidewalks and improve the bike
path and stormwater system.
Residents Steve Henson and
Gilbert -Shapiro, who live near
the proposed project,.said such a
project would put their parking
spaces at risk.
"It makes no sense to the peo-
ple," Henson said.
Even retired Assistant City


Manager John Jones chimed in,
"That's sort of a dumb thing to
do, to build a sidewalk over
there."
City Engineer Roland
Flowers made clear to the com-
mission that approval to accept
the money doesn't mean the city
has to accept the money later on
or, if it does, for that particular
project.
Commissioner Barry Gibson,
whose district includes Atlantic
Boulevard, said changes could
be made, like the "bike path
could be longer."
He also said it would be wise
to accept the money and sched-
ule a neighborhood meeting to
alleviate concerns.
The proposal includes 4,000
square feet of Americans with
Disability Act-compliant side-
walks where none now exist; the
westbound lane is near rows of
-new townhouses.

Despite the concerns, the
commission unanimously decid-
ed to accept the money.

The waterfront
Commissioners also tabled a
resolution that would extend
Eaton Street leading to the
Truman Waterfront and con-
struct a sidewalk. A new road
and sidewalk would ensure the
ongoing safe operation of the
Outer Mole Pier, city officials
say.
The money would come from
the Navy Mole Lease Fund. The
project as planned would cost no
more than $33,101 for a 20-foot-
wide road and a 5-foot asphalt
sidewalk.
"I don't see this as an open
and shut case," Commissioner
Bill Verge said, adding he needs
to see a written statement of
some sort from the U.S. Navy
confirming the need for the road
extension.
Contractor Charley Toppino
and Sons Inc. would do the con-
struction under the city's general
services contract. The city would
also have the option to go out for
bid.
The Navy, like the city, has
been in legal disagreements with
the nearby Truman Waterfront
neighborhood, represented by
the Truman Annex Master
Property Owners Association.
In August, the association
claimed it owns a parcel of land
on Eaton. Street but the Navy
said otherwise.
The Navy's Facilities
Engineering Command
Southeast mailed a letter dated
June 26 to group president Tom.
Tukey asking that a fence that
closes off that property be
opened for public access.

Fire deal stays in place


.Key Colony
pays Marathon
for protection
By RYAN McCARTHY
rmccarthy@keynoter.com


A The Marathon City Council
voted 3-2 Tuesday to keep a
three-year fire protection
accord established with Key
Colony Beach last year intact
for the coming fiscal year.
The two councils agreed to
a contract by which Key
Colony pays a percentage of
Marathon Fire Rescue's costs
based on the "just value" of a
property, or taxable land value
minus homestead or any other
exemption. The agreement
includes a termination clause
allowing either city to renego-
tiate; Marathon asked to
reopen the talks this year.
Last year, Key Colony paid
$303,745 toward Marathon
Fire Rescue's operating costs-.

"We did it on just value. We

designation as Shultz, agrees
with his assessment. To him, the
summer business is a welcome
reprieve from the winter when
panic gripped the market and
seized almost all business.
Skomp points to two recent
closings by his office on Greene
Street near Key West Aloe and
another on Duval as proof of the
spring and summer success.
"Buyers and investors have
gotten over the scare," he said.
"The sky's not falling; things are
going to be OK. You're seeing
this bad weather all over and gas
prices being what they are and
people realize that down in the
Keys, we've got a pretty good
lifestyle. If they're going to
weather out a downturn, it may as
well be here."
If anywhere, agents agree
Upper Duval from Truman to the
Southernmost Guest House is
seeing rents and property values
decline. '
"I think that when you have a
little slowdown in tourism, you
see less walking traffic in that
direction," said Claude Gardner,
co-owner of Prudential Knight &
Gardner. "There has been slight
adjustment, and that's healthy
and necessary. Tenants need
lower rent from businesses and
they need tenants to survive,
too."
In the county's midsection,


commercial real estate seems to
be less problematic. But perhaps
that's only because there's so
much less of it.
"Nothing is moving right
now," Realtor Ginger Henderson.
said of the Marathon market.
Henderson, who owns American
Caribbean Real Estate, said that
is because buildings are largely
owner-occupied.
Not selling or renting for a
reduced price could be the only
logical step for many retail out-
lets, said George Wilson, a
Realtor at Prudential Keyside
Properties in Key Largo.
"The toughest thing about
selling commercial property is
that it doesn't cash flow like
other property in the Miami-
Dade area because the rents
won't justify the price," he said.
"To get any appreciation on the
equity you have in the property,
you'd have to stick it out long
term."
In other words, when rents
and property values dip, selling at
a reasonable price one below
what ,the market may bear in a
few years could mean signifi-
cant losses or lost opportunity.
Tom Wright, Marathon real
estate attorney, said the market
has recently picked back up.
"I had four transactions fall
apart Monday," he said. "But
there were four transactions on
Monday to fall apart, and that's a
,big improvement." .

ASSOCIATION OF REALTORS

Congratulates Marathon High School Senior

Chris Garrett
the Winner of our Essay Contest on: -. -

"How Does a REALTOR Professional Benefit the Community?"
REALTOR professionals are an important part of the fabric of my community. They are my family 'friends,
my neighbors, people I go to for school fund raisers and letters of recommendation, people who help make
my town the special place it is.
REALTORS care about our community because it is their community also. Not only do they live within
our neighborhoods, but-their profession depends upon a thriving, attractive and safe community that hous-
es good schools, parks, scenic areas and vibrant businesses. What I have learned growing up in Marathon
is that our real estate professionals are actively involved in making those things happen in our community.
When the community decided they wanted a "Field of Dreams" for children to play many REALTOR pro-
fessionals serving as members of the Rotary Club were important contributors in donations of timd, work
and funding to make that a reality. When we wanted to build a new high school for the middle Keys mem-
bers of the realtor profession spent countless hours attending meetings, looking at plans, helping guide the
design of our new school. REALTORS are involved and contributing members of our community in ways
that make our town a home we can be proud of.
Members of the REALTOR profession don't just help us in making our community a more beautiful place
to live; they also help raise funds for important issues. The Marathon and Lower Keys REALTORS
Associations are important organizers and contributors to Relay for Life, a major fund raiser for cancer
research. Whenever our school or athletic teams have fund raisers to support our activities, I know I can
count on REALTOR professionals to support our efforts. Habitat for Humanity fund raisers, which provide
support to build homes for families in need, are enormously successful in good part because they are strong-
ly supported by members of the real estate profession. These are just a few examples of real things that real-
ty professionals spend their time and money doing to benefit our community.
With all of the contributions real estate professionals make to the community, I believe the most important
is helping find homes for our families. Whether it is finding a home to own that is affordable, or a decent
place to rent, REALTOR professionals help guide families in need of housing to options that work for them.
Recently my cousin and her husband moved to Marathon, both with jobs teaching at Marathon High" School.
They worked with a REALTOR to find a house they could afford to rent while saving to buy their own
home. Within a few weeks, they moved into a house that was perfect for them in a safe, clean neighbor-
hood. As they were moving in, their next-door neighbor came over to welcome them to the neighborhood
and offer assistance if they should need any help. It was.a nice welcome from a thoughtful neighbor and a
REALTOR professional.,. ., ; ..: . i .

Space invaders

Burmese pythons, iguanas and Gambian rats threaten environmental balance


By ERIN EHRLICH
eehrlich@keysreporter.com


They can eat your plants,
small mammals, your dog's din-
ner and albeit rarely your
dog.
Some animals in the Florida
Keys are becoming more than
just a nuisance; they're becoming
a threat to the unique ecology of
these islands. Scientists call them
invasive species, meaning
they're not native, and they
reproduce fast enough to crowd
out fragile natives.
Creatures like the Gambian
giant pouch rat and green iguanas
gobble up endangered plants,
defecate on lawns and in pools,
and ruin native foliage around
homes.
Burmese pythons one was
found and killed in Key Largo
last week eat small animals
and sometimes not-so-small ani-.
mals. Recall the exploding-,


Burmese-python-meets-
American-alligator incident in
2005.
What's more, many of these
animals are spreading, and local
wildlife experts aren't taking the
situation lightly.

Pythons
Though they live primarily in
the Everglades, several Burmese
pythons likely released pets or
the offspring of released pets. -
have been found in the Upper
Keys, and they pose a serious
threat should more decide to
migrate south.
"I think the biggest threat in
the Keys is, being a stretch of
islands, the ecological resources
that are particularly vulnerable,"
said Frank Mazzotti, an associate
professor at the University of
Florida's Institute of Food and
Agricultural Sciences.
Mazzotti said the snakes have.
been found all over Florida and


certainly have the capability to
live and breed in the Keys.
Native to Burma (now called
Myanmar) in Southeast Asia, the
Burmese python is one of the
world's largest snakes. The
largest specimen found in the
Everglades measured 16 feet
long and weighed 152 pounds.
The non-venomous constric-
tors are popular pets in the
United States. According to the
U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service,
about 99,000 Burmese pythons
were imported between 1996 and
2006.
.However, wildlife experts say
most owners don't realize the
burden of owning a snake that
can grow to such size. Some
owners then release them into the
wild an illegal way of dispos-
ing of them.
Although the Everglades pop-
ulation has been estimated in the
thousands, only a.few have been,
reported'inri he Up dr Keys. One


was reported in Marathon in
April.
"We need to do something so
that -five years from now, we're
not looking at an exponentially
bigger population in those areas
because we didn't go in and get
the first ones before they started
breeding," Mazzotti says.
"As soon as you know they're
breeding, eradication gets to be
out of the question," he contin-
ues. "Females may store sperm,
so they can produce fertile
clutches for years. And a 100-
something-pound snake can easi-
ly be producing 60, 80 eggs a
year."
"Everybody needs to be very
vigilant," he said. "I don't care if
it's the Burmese python or a
monitor [lizard] if one shows
up in your yard, report it so we
can get rid of it."

Gambian rats
Since 2004, Scott Hardin has
led a state and federal effort to
eradicate the only breeding popu-
lation of Gambian giant pouch
rats in the U.S., on Grassy Key.
After years of studying, trapping
and poisoning the rodents,
Hardin, exotic species coordina-
tor for the Florida Fish and
Wildlife Conservation
Commission, said fewer than a
dozen are left in the wild.
The rats, named for the cheek
pouches where they store food,
originate from Africa and aver-
age about 3 pounds, although
they can grow to more than twice
that weight and reach lengths of
35 inches from nose to tail.
Wildlife officials 'believe the
Grassy Key population started
when rats either escaped or were
let go by a breeder around 2001.
Some fear the rats could reach
the Everglades and pose a threat


Hardin said only one rat was
reported north of Grassy Key. It
was found dead in Lower
Matecumbe.
"We figured this would take a
couple of years to go hunt sur-
vivors down, and work on it bit
by bit," Hardin said. "Again, we
wish there were none, but we're
not surprised we pick up one here
and one there."
In a first attempt to eradicate
the species in 2007, officials used

to the entire ecosystem. They
could also pose a human health
risk. The rats were linked to a
monkey pox outbreak in the U.S.
in 2003 and were then made ille-
gal for import.
"I'll emphasize that the rats in
Grassy Key have been negative


for monkey pox," Hardin said.
"My concern with them is if they
move into [mainland] South
Florida, where there is a huge
agricultural threat. The geo-
graphic distribution in Africa
means they could move readily
live throughout the Southeast."

Iguanas: Love 'em or hate 'em


INVADERS / From 21

"What you have is the situa-
tion where we've trapped them
out of the woods and put radio
collars on some," Hardin said.
The collars can lead trappers
back to the rats' burrows, where
the trappers can find other rats.
However, many Gambian rats are
hard to reach because they are


very tightly connected to the
houses they live near.
But with a controlled popula-
tion, the rats are still a threat, but
seemingly more a nuisance. They
are omnivorous and primarily eat
fruits, grains, insects, crabs,
snails and, sometimes, small
mammals. However, they often
get into residents' garbage and
can fight loudly with each other
and other animals such as cats


and raccoons.
To report a Gambian pouch rat
online, go to www.myfWc
.comlnonnatives or call (866)
484-7586.

Iguanas
"They tear apart hibiscus
flowers," Chris Guinto, owner of
White Apeman Animal Capture
and Removal, said of iguanas.
"They love those things; it's like
peanut butter to them."
Green iguanas began breeding
in the Keys in the early f990s
.and have run rampant since.
"Since the temperatures are
not cold enough to kill them and
there aren't any natural predators,
then they have made it and the
populations have increased," said
Kim Gabel, horticulture agent
with the Monroe County
Cooperative Extension Service.
Native to Central and South
America, iguanas spread in the
Keys like other nonnative species
have, experts guess the rep-
tiles were sold as pets and illegal-
ly released when they got too
large. The difference is green
iguanas are still sold in pet stores.
Of all the officially listed non-
native species, the green iguana

between neighbors where one
likes the iguanas and others
don't," Gabel said.
Because the iguana is consid-
ered invasive, if one is caught it
must be put down or given to a
wildlife center; it's illegal to trap
and release them, Gabel warned.
It is also considered inhumane to
shoot an iguana as a method of
killing it.
Since iguanas are cold-blood-
ed, their body functions slow
when temperatures drop below
the mid-70s. If a large freezer is
available, wildlife experts
encourage placing iguanas inside
until they. freeze to death as a
humane way to kill them.

Fest celebrates Fisher's find


'Atocha' coins
will go to
lucky winners
The late Mel Fisher, one of the
20th Century's best-known ship-
wreck salvors, will again be hon-
ored with a Key West festival that
also commemorates the 23rd
anniversary of his most famous
find.
Mel Fisher Days is set to
begin July 17 and continue
through July 20 the anniver-
sary of Fisher's discovery of the
shipwrecked Spanish treasure
galleon Nuestra Senora de
Atocha in waters off Key West.
Fisher and his Treasure
Salvors crew uncovered a huge
cache of Atocha treasure and arti-
facts, hailed by the world press as
the shipwreck find of the 20th
Century, in 1985 after a 16-year
search. The galleon was wrecked
during a 1622 hurricane approxi-
mately 35 miles southwest of
Key West.
History aficionados can view
Atocha artifacts and treasures at
the Mel Fisher Maritime Museum,
200 Greene St., operated by the
Mel Fisher Maritime Heritage
Society that Fisher established in
1982. Objects on display include
gold and .silver bars and coins,
rare navigational instruments,
cannons and smaller weapons,

religious and secular jewelry and
even a 77.7-carat emerald.
Fisher's descendents, includ-
ing son Kim Fisher and grandson
Sean Fisher, lead the continuing
search for Atocha artifacts and
treasures still lost in Florida Keys
waters. Recent discoveries
include a 23-karat gold bar.
The Fisher family and friends
present Mel Fisher Days activi-
ties each year to celebrate the
salvor's accomplishments,
unquenchable optimism and exu-
berant zest for life.
Events begin at 6 p.m. July 17,
when those intrigued by the
Atocha adventure are invited to
meet at the Schooner Wharf Bar
overlooking the water at 202
William St. .The kick-off is to
include games, contests, live
music and raffles with at least
one Atocha coin presented to a
lucky participant.
The following afternoon
around 5 p.m., plans call for a
Mel Fisher Days parade through
a portion of Old Town. The pro-
cession is to consist of floats, a
fire truck, pedicabs and other
assorted vehicles, with a route
leading from the museum to
Rick's Bar, 208 Duval St.
A subsequent "hard times
party," recalling the salvors' lean
years before the shipwreck find,
is to begin at Rick's and follow a
pub-crawl format to establish-
ments that were favorite Fisher
hangouts.
Mel Fisher Days will also fea-
ture a Midnight Gambler Texas
Hold 'Em Poker Tournament
aboard Sunset Watersports' Party
Cat catamaran. Top poker players

the Florida Keys is to
become a wine-lover's
paradise as guests meet vint-
ners, winemakers and vineyard
owners from around the world
at free-pour events during the
Key Largo Food and Wine Fest,
set to run Aug. 1 through 9.
"We're bringing the winery
to you," says Robert Stoky, an
event coordinator and local
restaurant owner. "What better
way is there to taste wines than
with fresh local seafood and the
owner of the winery at your
table, pouring free wine?"
The nine-day festival will
include gourmet wine dinners
and parties. It will kick off at 7
p.m. on Friday, Aug. 1, with
local celebrity chef Jim Boilini
preparing a six-course Italian
dinner at Sundowner's
Restaurant, at mile marker
103.9 bayside. Each course is to


be paired with a rustic Italian
wine.
Key Largo's culinary diversi-
ty is reflected in the festival's
events on Saturday, Aug. 2 with
a "Sweet and Spicy" Mexican
pairing, "A Return to Venice"
street party and "Mediterranean
Nights" featuring European
wines.
Asian influences are repre-
sented during the festival as
well. With a source of plentiful
sushi-grade fish, Num Thai is to
host a sushi and Thai-cuisine
affair featuring complimentary
sake on Tuesday, Aug. 5. The
restaurant is located at mile
marker 103.2.
Wine connoisseurs can enjoy
a six-course progressive dinner
with free transportation
Wednesday, Aug. 6. The move-
able feast is to include a stop at
the Mandalay Restaurant, off
U.S. 1 at mile marker 97.5
oceanside, for a signature dish
of Lazy Mahi-Mahi. This fresh
catch is rolled in Japanese
breads crumbs, sauteed and
topped with diced tomatoes,
shallots and grated Parmesan
and drizzled in a Key lime but-
ter sauce.
On the same day, lobster fans
can celebrate the beginning of
the Florida Keys lobster season
with a delicious Florida lobster
feast at Bayside Grille, mile
marker 99.5. In addition, each
of the food and wine festival's
19 participating restaurants is
offering to cook patrons' lobster
harvest and serve it with side
dishes for just $15 per person.

Rocking on at the Underwater Music Fest


Founders recall
creation of
one-of-a-kind event
By MARGARET MENGE
mmenge@keynoter.com

It wasn't until Dr. Fred
Troxel came around the cor-
ner and saw the mermaid
'e there floating in front of him
that he realized what he'd cre-
ated. She was like from the
movie "Splash" he says but
"Splashier!"
Troxel was a young dentist
on Big Pine Key whenhe and
his friend Bill Becker came up
with the idea for the
Underwater Music Festival. It
didn't come purely from a
sense of fun, but more from a
desire on the part of the Florida
Keys Council of the Arts, of
which Troxel was a member, to
create a county-wide arts event.
"It just popped out of wanting
to do something different," he
says. In that, it must be said,
they've succeeded.
The Underwater Music
Festival, to take place Saturday,
July 12, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.,
in shallow water off Looe Key,
is now in its 24th year. Boats


leaving from Ramrod Key and
Big Pine will take snorkelers,
scuba divers and a slew of jour-
nalists and other onlookers out
to the reef to bear witness.
Most of what there is to see
happens under the water.
This year's Underwater
Music Festival will
salute the presiden-
tial 'eel-ection'
with
'Reefpublicans'
and 'Democrabs'
doing some sum-
mer campaign-
ing under the
sea. Divers will
be costumed as
"Hillary
Clintuna," as
"John McClam"
and "Barackuda
Obama" and Bill
Becker himself
will be hovering in
the area, under '
water or above, \
dressed as a Secret
Service agent.
The mermaid this
year will be Samantha
Langsdale, and you never know
.who else you might see under
the surface of the water. Troxel


describes the scene at the
Underwater Music Festival as
something like a submerged
city park, where you bump into
* a lot of people you.know and
haven't seen in a long time.
You can't


The Clam-bourine was

Dr. Troxel says the idea to
have an underwater concert
came about because his friend
George Rockett, owner of the

Big Pine, had an underwater
speaker that he used to call
scuba divers back to the boat.
This gave Troxel the idea for

-p o-


the now-world-famous festival
- culture, sound; underwater it
was almost served up to him on
a plate.
Troxel went to Becker,
who'd started at U.S. 1 Radio
in 1980 and had been a marine
biologist, teaching at Sea Camp
on Big Pine Key for ten years.
"I said, 'Why don't we have
an underwater music festival?
It'll be kind of something
unique in the world,'" Troxel
remembers.
"It was kind of a joint
thing," says Becker. Troxel, he
says, called him and told him
about the underwater speakers
and his idea for music under-
water. "He said, 'How can we
do this?'"
-Troxel got in contact with
Lubell Labs in Ohio. The com-
pany had begun making the
underwater loudspeakers in
1968 and gained some attention
after they were used at the
1970 national synchronized
swimming competition in San
Francisco. (The company now
lists on its Web site 'underwa-
ter music festivals' as one of
the suggested uses for the
speakers though there is, as
far as anyone knows, only one
such festival in the world).
Steve Lubell himself took
the call, and offered to send a
couple of speakers down to Big
Pine Key for the first underwa-
ter music festival. And every-
thing else after that just fell into
place. Troxel said he and Bill
got in contact with their mutual
friend Billy Causey, then the
head of the National Marine
Sanctuary. They thought he was
going to say 'no' to the propos-
al to have a festival at the reef.
But he went for it, and the
Underwater Music Festival now
broadcasts diver safety public
service announcements in
between sets of music, and the
whole festival is used as an
opportunity to draw attention to
the fragile reef.
The festival is now organ-
ized by the Lower Keys
Chamber of Commerce, based
on Big Pine, which picks a
theme, along with the Tourist
Development Council; organiz-
es the costumed divers; and
helps guides hundreds of peo-
ple out to the reef for the event.
"The one thing we strive for is
to be a little kooky," says
Carole.Stevens, the :chamber's
executive director4 Brava.

What does music

sound like underwater?


Tinnier, with
no base, but
otherwise OK
Four underwater loud-
speakers manufactured
by the Ohio-based"
Lubell Labs will be lowered
from boats at Looe Key on
Saturday, July 12 for the
Underwater Music Festival.
The speakers, which
resemble pie pans glued
together, are capable of trans-
mitting music over a broad
area via the FM receivers on
the boats.
Lubell Labs claims on its
Web site that a single speaker
is capable of transmitting
"crystal clear" music over a
twenty-acre lake, powered by
only a small Sony tape
recorder.
But what does the music
really sound like?
"You lose all your base
notes," says Dr. Charles
'Fred' Troxel, one of the
founders of the Underwater
Music Festival. "The curious
thing is when you're close to
it there's no stereo. It just
sounds like it's in your body."
Sound travels four times


6,


faster through water than it
does through air at about
1482 meters per second in 68
degree Fahrenheit water. In
comparison, it travels only
344 meters per second in air
of the same temperature.
Lubell Labs invented and
patented their underwater
loudspeakers in 1968.
They've since been used in
the production of a number of
movies, including "Benji,"
"Flipper," "Free Willy," "The
Abyss," "Titanic,"
"Waterworld," "Saving
Private Ryan," "Entrapment,"
"The Mummy," "The World Is
Not Enough," "Jason and the
Argonauts," "102 Dalmatians"
and "Harry Potter."

Learn
to Hustle

Dance instructors Lucy and
Leon are offering an eight-week
course on the Hustle beginning
July 9 at Paradise Health &
Fitness in Key West.
The Hustle was made mega-
famous by the 1977 movie
"Saturday Night Fever" starring
John Travolta. It is usually asso-
ciated with the song of the same
name by Van McCoy that has no
other lyrics than "Do the
Hustle." But the dance, says
Lucy, didn't die with disco era
- it's a couples dance that can
be danced to almost any kind of
music, at any club in Key West
or anywhere in the world.
The class will begin with the
basics of three-count Hustle. It
will meet Wednesdays from 7-
8:15 p.m. at Paradise Health and
Fitness on July 9, 16, 23 and 30
and Aug. 6, 13,_20 and 28. No
partner is required. The cost is
$48, and the class is contingent
on a minimum of ten dancers.

'We've come a long way from our first practice


PLAYERS / From 33

Malea and Caroline
Koslowski.
"If we're not ready, we're
not going," head coach Arthur
Paterson said during a recent
practice. "But I'd say we're
about 98 percent ready. We've
come a long way from our first
practice."
,.r Since most of the girls have
been playing soccer at a high
level for several years,
Paterson said he intended to
focus on being in condition to
play five first-round games in
two and a half days. "We're
working on speed, stamina,
strength and agility," he said.
Keys Krush, a Middle Keys
under-14 girls team led by
Marathon High School assis-
tant girls varsity coach Lynn
Landry, is also making the


trip.
"We're going to give them
a weekend to enjoy and we
start on Monday with different
activities to enjoy," Landry
said.
The teams are based in spe-
cific areas, but Landry said
they comprise players from up
and down the Keys. The Krush
features seven players from
the Upper Keys, three from
Marathon and two each from
Key West and Homestead.
Marathon AYSO Regional
Commissioner Chris Bull said
the under-14 boys team, Keys
United, comprises five players
from Key West, one from Big
Pine, four from Marathon and
three from the Upper Keys.
Landry said he was sur-
prised to see so many teams
Keys teams make the cut since
more than 200 teams applied
for 24 slots.


"What they try and do is
spread the teams out across
the U.S. so you meet. teams
from all across the country,"
he said.
The 24 teams from each age
group are broken down into
four six-team pools and over
three days, each team plays
five games. The top two teams
in each division advance to the
quarterfinals and then either
the semifinals and finals, or
the consolation bracket.
The teams will check in at
Honolulu's McKinley High
School gymnasium Sunday at
5 p.m. and have until
Tuesday's opening ceremony
to practice. Wednesday, they
take part in Soccer Fest, a one-
day event where players from
different teams play together'
in scrimmages encouraging
camaraderie among the kids.
Landry said West Palm


Beach will host the tourna-
ment in 2010.
Games scheduled:
+ Upper Keys Under-16
girls: July 10, Santa Barbara
(Calif.) and Woodland Hills
(Calif.); July 11, Kailua

Collins is last angler standing among more than 3,000


COLLINS / From 33

fish a snook and a permit -
to collect his second slam. He
fell short by catching only a"
snook early, but like all the
anglers, suffered with overcast
skies searching for the permit.
"I was hoping to get the
remaining species we need to
pull together two slams," said
Collins, who was guided. by


Capt. Mark Gilman from
Islamorada.
Collins, who first won the
tournament in 2005, caught a
snook early and then two bone-
fish and a redfish. But he was a
permit shy of his second slam.
He scored 1250 points on his 13
fish using both bait and artifi-
cial lures, along with circle
hooks for added points.
Lopez was runner-up grand
champion with his slam and


four fish for 950 total points.
In the fly division, Mark
Cooper of Aurora, Colo., won
on releases of a redfish, a tarpon
and three snook. The former
NFL lineman for the Denver
Broncos and the Tampa Bay
Buccaneers totaled 775 points
while going scoreless the final
day.
First-day leader John Timura
of Islamorada bounced back in
the final round to win the artifi-


cial division on catches of red-
fish, snook and permit over the
three days.
In May, Collins and Timura
were members of a five-man
team winning the IGFA
Offshore World Championship
in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico,
outfishing 63 teams from 27
countries.
The 32 anglers gained entry
in the Inshore by winning one
of more than 55 fly and light-


tackle IGFA tournaments in
2007 that were held in eight
countries around the world.
More than 3,000 anglers on four
continents participated.
Next year, Sandy Moret of
from Florida Keys Outfitters in
Islamorada will form a partner-
ship with the IGFA to take over
management of the Inshore. The
Florida Keys Outfitters/IGFA
Inshore World Championship is
scheduled for July 7 to 9, 2009.
