from the state
By DAVID BALL
dball @keysreporter.com


Nearly all Keys public schools
scored at the top of the state's
grading formula based on figures
released by the Florida
Department of Education
Tuesday.
Florida rates schools using let-
ter grades from A to F based on
how well students perform on the
Florida Comprehensive
Achievement Test, or FCAT.
Every Keys school either


maintained an A or improved to
an A from last year except for
Key West High School, which
maintained its B rating.
"Students, teachers, parents,
administrative staff and faculty, it
was really a group effort,"
Superintendent Randy Acevedo
said. "What a great year."
Improving or maintaining
high school grades is critical for
the School District because state
funding in part relies on how high
- or low a school's grade is.
The higher the grade, the more
funding from the state.

Gonsalves: My

Former hostage

about FARC
By MARGARET MENGE
mmenge@keynoter.com

It appeared for a moment as
though Marc Gonsalves was
going to leave the stage without
speaking Monday afternoon. But
then he squared himself in front
of the podium and began in an
even and measured tone that had,
beneath it, a quiet intensity.
"I am grateful for this oppor-
tunity to speak out to the world,"


he began. "There was a time that
when I slept, I would dream that
I was free. That time was only a
few days ago."
Gonsalves, a resident of Big
Pine Key, then began to talk
about the men who held him pris-
oner in the jungles of Colombia
for the past five years and four
and a half months.
He was live on CNN, telling
the world.
"I want to tell you about the
FARC, a guerilla group that
claim to be revolutionaries, fight-

Two more candidates have
joined what is becoming an
extensive list of residents vying
for three open seats on the
Marathon City Council this
November.
Michael Cofield and Allen
Pedersen filed preliminary paper-
work last week with the Monroe
County Supervisor of Elections
Office, bringing the number of
candidates to eight. -
Already filed were incumbent
Mayor Pete Worthington and
Councilwoman Marilyn Tempest,
former Mayor John Bartus,
Kevin Woodland and Joan
"Bicycle Joanie" Nelson.
Cofield and Pedersen join
Ginger Snead as newcomers to
the city's political arena;
Woodland and Nelson have pre-
viously run.
Vice Mayor Chris Bull said he
won't seek reelection to a third
consecutive two-year term on the
council.
Cofield is a retired captain
with the Orange County Sheriff's
Office who's been living full-
time in Marathon for six years.
"This is a unique place to live
and it offers a lot of challenges,"
Cofield said. "I'll have a com-
mon-sense approach. I don't real-
ly consider myself a politician; I


just hope I get
elected and
can represent

Cofield
said he consid-
ers completing
the citywide
COFIELD sewer system
COFuIELD a high priority.
"We need to get the thing
done. It should have been done
30 or 40 years ago and the longer
we wait, the more it will cost," he
said.
Cof-ie l d
also said it
upset him that
Marathon Fire
Rescue was
harshly criti-
S cized for its
handling of a
June 4 fire that
PEDERSON destroyed the
home of entertainer Robert
"Rocketman" Hudson. Many res-
idents say the fire burned too long
- between 12 and 15 minutes -
without firefighters putting water
on it.
"I hate to see guys get trained
and put their lives on the line and
leave for a higher-paying job.
That's true of a lot smaller depart-
ments statewide," Cofield said.

SANTE :not rethinking


Fire Chief Dale Beaver has
said losing firefighters to main-
land jobs is a constant strain on
the department and its prepared-
ness.
Pedersen worked in manage-
ment with Delta Airlines for 34
years before retiring in 2006. He
said he's been a full-time resident
for more than four years.
"I need to find something
decent to do and this seemed like
a good challenge. I'm not in any-
body's pocket and I'm not a
bubba boy," he said.
Pedersen cited problems with
fire protection, in particular
installing hydrants throughout
town, as one of his main issues.
"That should be our No. 1 con-
cern, to get fire hydrants in. They
put fancy lighting out there but did
they need the lighting or did they
need the hydrants?" Pedersen
asked, referring to new streetlights
installed along Sombrero Beach
Road near where Hudson and his
family lived.
The Florida Department of
Transportation funded recon-
struction of Sombrero Beach
Road, and that included the new
lighting.
Candidate qualifying is from
noon Aug. 5 to noon Aug. 12.
Petition qualifying ended at noon
Tuesday, meaning candidates
must now pay a filing fee to enter
the race by the August deadline.

things and deciding to retire."
Higgs said the hard cam-
paigning will take place closer
to Election Day Nov. 4, giving
him plenty of time to rebound.
"The surgery was four weeks
ago," he said. "Four weeks and
I just can't be stopped. I'm
good for another 15 to 20
years."
"I'm not running for presi-
dent, though the whole thing
got started early this time
because my opponent started
real early," he said.
Sante said he's running on a
platform of making the apprais-
er's office more user-friendly
and accessible.
"The people that work in the
offices are very good, but the
Web site is hard to deal with,"
he said. "I plan to, be in each
office several times a week to
be accessible to the residents."

grades and showed far fewer F

Aquateam dives in


AQUATEAM / From 1

free-diving world records.
Their adventures will be
chronicled on "Aquateam,"
which will air on the Discovery
Kids channel at the start of next
year, says John Wesley
Chisholm, president and produc-
er of Arcadia Entertainment,
which produces the show.
The Aquateam has been in the
. Keys since Sunday, and was
exploring the Mel Fisher
Maritime Museum Tuesday.
Today, production assistant
Janice Villagomez says, the crew
will head out on the water with
famed treasure hunter Mel
Fisher's son, Kim Fisher,
Thursday, the kids will ven-
ture to the college on Stock
Island, where dive instructor Bill
Chalfant will show the young-
sters the hyperbaric chambers


and the beams of the Nuestra
Senora de Atocha.
That's the Spanish shipwreck
Mel Fisher discovered. It's yield-
ed some $400 million in gold, sil-
ver and other treasure since it was
found 23 years ago.
Chisholm says Arcadia's been
making films for the past 12 years,
mostly for National Geographic
and the Discovery Channel.
He says the Aquateam kids
have all had at least six months of
dive training and love sharks,
especially after confronting them
head-on.
"The first day on the water, I
took eight other people's children
and threw them in the water with
* sharks," he said. The divers
encountered everything from
"the lowly nurse sharks" to coral
sea sharks.
The Aquateam's. shows are
done in documentary style,
Chisholm said.
Arcadia staff interviewed close


to 180 kids to find the most artic-
ulate, mature and adventurous
. cast members. They chose seven
from that group and recruited
another youngster who appeared
in a hockey documentary. There
were far more boys than girls who
applied to be in the cast.
The crew was in the Bahamas
at the end of June, at Stuart
Cove's, where part of the film
"Into the. Blue" and shipwreck
scenes from James Bond movies
were filmed, field producer
Marcel Boulet said.
Chisholm said Key West
offers the cast plenty of com-
pelling material.
"They'll learn about coral
reefs," he said. "And Key West is
sort of a center of excellence for
diving."
After the Keys experience, the
Aquateam will head to Bimini to
film in the mangroves rumored to
be the road to the underwater
world of Atlantis.

'They are terrorists'


GONSALVES / From I

ing for the poor people of
Colombia" he said. "They say
that they just want to make
Colombia a better place. But
that's all a lie. It's a cover story.
And they hide behind it. And they
use it to justify their criminal
activity."
"The FARC are not a revolu-
tionary group," he said, looking
up, as though to make absolutely
certain of being heard. "They are
not a revolutionary group. They
are terrorists. Terrorists with a
capital T."
Gonsalves went on to tell of a
newborn baby FARC held in cap-
tivity, a baby -that was sick and
needed medical attention.
"I myself, and my friends,
Tom and Keith, we've also been
the victim of their hate, and their
abuse and of their torture," he
said. -
Gonsalves was the second of
the three Americans to speak at.
the afternoon press conference,
which was broadcast from Fort
Sam Houston in San- Antonio,
Texas. It was part of a ceremony
organized by U.S. Southern
Command, which oversees all
U.S. military operations in
Central and South America.
The three Americans, rescued
in a daring operation conducted
by the Colombian military last
week, were introduced, along
with their families at Monday's


event.
Gonsalves
wore a dark
suit coat and
white shirt,
and stood to
the right of the
podium. His
teenage
GONSALVES dau g h ter
Destiny stood
next to him, with sons Cody. and
Joey on the other side and his
father, George Gonsalves, on the
end. His brother, Mike, stood on
the left side of the podium, and
spoke briefly, thanking the
Colombia military for his broth-
er's safe return. Jo Rosano, their
mother, walked to the stage to
hug Marc at one point, and also
spoke.
"I'm trying not to cry," she
said. "I've been crying for five
years. And I'm still crying. But
tears of joy. '
The words spoken by Marc
Gonsalves on Monday afternoon
were intended not only for a
domestic audience. Gonsalves
punctuated his description of
FARC by addressing the guerril-
las directly.
"Don't tell us that you're not
terrorists," he said. "Show us that
you're not terrorists. Let those
other hostages come home."
It's estimated that more than
700 people are still being held
hostage by FARC in remote jun-
gle regions of Colombia.

Keys Opinion


Hail schools' success,

but keep even keel
Two sailboats leave Key Largo. One travels three miles east
and then four miles north. The second sailboat travels eight
miles south and six miles west. How far apart, in miles, are the
boats?
Look for the answer at the bottom of this editorial.
If it has you stumped, join the club. This question was taken
from last year's Florida Comprehensive Achievement Test,
administrated to ninth-graders statewide.
It illustrates both the promise and the pitfalls of the FCAT and
the emphasis on this state-mandated test to assign letter grades
to Florida schools.
In the Keys, students, teachers and administrators can proud-
ly trumpet this year's results (see story, Page 1).
Knowing that tiny Monroe County schools managed to set
the highest grade point average among 67 school districts is
certainly deserving of celebration.
School District Superintendent Randy Acevedo focused his
public comments on three Keys schools that improved their
overall showing by one letter grade: Horace O'Bryant Middle
School, Marathon High and the Treasure Village Moritessori in
Islamorada. Even more impressive, Coral Shores High moved
from a C grade -last year to an A.
You need to know the backdrop for that turnaround. Last
year,- the grading formula penalized Coral Shores students
because reading scores needed to improve by 50 percent,
Acevedo explained then, "and Coral Shores' scores improved
by 45 percent."
This illustrates the pitfall side of Florida's FCAT measure.
Just take headlines from 2006, when an embarrassed Florida
Department of Education conceded that all FCAT scores that
year were wrong. Turns out an "anomaly in third-grade reading
results" triggered the cascade effect.
Does that mean Florida students that year were not as smart
as we thought? No, it means the FCAT should be only one
measure, not the be-all and end-all that it's become.
Fortunately, Gov. Charlie Crist, himself a former education
commissioner, has raised questions about the FCAT and how
it's being used.
Even the Legislature is waking up and pushing for more
grade levels to be included so test results can help measure
progress from grade level to grade level, not isolated snapshots
as happens now.
So while there's lots to feel good about with Monroe
County's dozen A-rated schools and one B-rated school, there,
are still larger questions about how the FCAT helps measure
success beyond test-taking.
Answer: Fifteen miles. Only 21 percent of Florida ninth-
graders got this right.

Drilling in the gulf needs to be on the table


EDITOR:
I'm just recently back from my annual trip to
Normandy and was sitting around with some
friends talking about France and Europe. I am
constantly amazed at the level of ignorance about
the rest of the world here in this country.
We were talking about pollution and the price
of oil and I mentioned that in Europe, they are
paying almost $8 a gallon and driving cars that
average more than 40 mpg, especially those using
biodiesel. Western Europe has no oil reserves;
they have to buy all they use.
We have a lot of oil in this country but no one
wants to drill for it, especially out in the gulf.
One of the people in our little group said we
should not drill out there due to pollution. I asked
him to consider how much sewage and other pol-
lutants this country had been dumping into the


gulf and other costal waters for years.
Well, he said, what happens when hurricanes
blow away the drill rigs and the oil gushes into
the gulf? I reminded him that Katrina wrecked a'
lot of offshore platforms, and none of them
leaked..
I suggested that we could have nukes produc-
ing power like the Europeans have had for years,
but people here don't like nukes. Europe has fast
trains, but we don't like trains either, so when the
planes aren't flying in this country and it costs
too much to drive, what are we going to do?
We'd better figure it out pretty quick now that
we are eating and making fuel out of a cash crop
that grows once a year and is currently under sev-
eral feet of polluted water.

Foundation comes through again


EDITOR:
We would like to sincerely thank the
Coldwell Banker Schmitt Charitable
Foundation for helping out a family in need.
Our tenant, Mike Sawtelle, tragically lost
his wife, Maureen, in a horrible accident a
couple of months ago. Maureen was riding her
bicycle to-work at Little Palm Island when she
was hit by an RV. She spent three weeks in
intensive care in Miami, where they heroically
tried to save -her. Unfortunately, her injuries
were too severe and she lost her battle on
May 9. .
Mike and his two children, Morgan -and
Mandy, spent weeks traveling back and forth
to the hospital, accruing even more expenses
than normal, not to mention the hospital and
medical bills that are astronomical and with

Do the math
EDITOR:
Three hundred square miles of sugar cane for
$1.7 billion. OK, a square mile is 40 acres.
. Three hundred times 40 = equals 12,000 acres.
$1.7 billion divided by 12,000 equals
$1,416,666.66. So written out, that's one mil-
lion, four hundred sixteen thousand, and six
hundred and sixty-six dollars and sixty-six cents
per acre of farmland. An acre is 43,560 square
feet. That comes to $32.52 per square foot.
To me, this is way too much to pay for farm-
land.

loss of income resulting from this tragedy. It is
difficult to even think about bills at a time
'when you are trying to hold your life together
and it is admirable that the Coldwell Banker
Schmitt Charitable Foundation came to the
rescue by paying two months rent, some of
their utilities and some expenses for Morgan,
their 13-year-old son.
They came through quickly and with great
caring for a deserving family. This is an
instance of a business, through its employees
and Realtor associates, giving back to local
people in extreme need who are an integral-
part of our community.
We applaud the Coldwell Banker Schmitt
Real Estate Co. for starting a foundation to
help members of our community when they
need it most. We also cannot give enough
thanks to the valued employees and realtor
associates who donate their time and money to
fund and implement this foundation.
Once again, thank you to the Coldwell
Banker Schmitt Charitable Foundation for
helping Mike Sawtelle and his family in their
time of need and sorrow.

TraumaStar is best alternative


EDITOR:
I would urge all Keys residents to
consider the following facts before the
Monroe County Commission decides.
the fate of the TraumaStar medical hel-
icopter July 14.
TraumaStar. is our county emer-
gency medical helicopter for critical
patient evacuation. TraumaStar has ties
and commitment to the Keys commu-
nity and was developed so we would
not be at the mercy of for-profit air
services.
Air Methods/LifeNet is a for-profit
organization based in Colorado, pub-
licly traded, with a responsibility to its
shareholders. As recently as August.
2007 and June 2008, Air
Methods/LifeNet ceased operations in
two Missouri cities. The company pub-
licly stated it was moving its service to
save money and jobs. The past week,
Air Methods/LifeNet closed two bases
in Florida, one in Leesburg (Lake
County) and one in Kissimmee
(Osceola County).
The TraumaStar air ambulance costs
the patient significantly less due to the
fact that the fee is regulated by the
County Commission.
Air Methods/LifeNet fees are based
on a national fee structure that is sever-
al thousand dollars higher per flight. It
may interest residents to know that sev-
eral months ago, Air Methods/LifeNet
became the exclusive first contact for
hospital-to-hospital transfers, thereby


incurring a greater cost for patients.
Of the 86 patients transported by
TraumaStar between January and July
4, 2008, 46 were patients that Air
Methods/LifeNet could not transport
because of maintenance, weather,
staffing or availability issues.
The design of the TraumaStar heli-
copter is large enough to allow medical
attention for two patients when
required. The design of the Air
Methods/LifeNet helicopter has
restricted patient access if more than
one patient has to be transported.
This critical and essential emergency
service is already in place through
TraumaStar. Perhaps TraumaStar rev-
enues would have been greater if Air
Methods/LifeNet had not taken over hos-
pital-to-hospital transfers several months
ago, and this question of TraumaStar's
continuation would be moot.
Perhaps this emergency service does
not seem as vital to residents and vot-
ers in the Upper Keys.
I ask residents and voters of the
Middle and Lower Keys, who do you
want the lives of your family to depend
on? The medical and aviation profes-
sionals who are a part of our communi-
ty or the shareholders of a for-profit
Colorado air service?
Make your voice heard before it's
too late. Tell the county administrator
and commissioners to keep TraumaStar.

Iguanas should be respected, not dispatched


EDITOR:
I read with dismay the article titled
"Space invaders" in the July 5 Keynoter,
Page 20. While I agree in concept with the
theme of the article (there is a problem
with invasive exotic species), I vehemently
disagree with the last paragraph in the
story.
It is unclear to whom to attribute the
final statement, which claims that "iguanas
are cold blooded .... experts encourage
placing iguanas inside [freezers] until they
freeze to death as a humane way to kill
them."
First off, from a scientific perspective,
iguanas (reptiles) have not been considered
cold blooded for more than two decades.
These animals are poikilothermic, meaning
they derive their metabolism through their
environment. In fact, if you were to take
the core temperature of an iguana at any
given time, you would find their body tem-
perature is usually higher than ambient.
More to the point, the Keynoter printed a
statement about freezing iguanas. It is not
only cruel and inhumane, it is against all
written and published humane guidelines for
euthanasia.
Both the American Veterinary Medical
Association and the American Association
of Zoo Veterinarians have published regu-
lations on what is legal and what are con-
sidered improper methods of euthanasia for
all animal species.


Regarding freezing iguanas: "Cooling of
reptiles will slow their metabolism and may
aid in handling of the specimens, but has
not been shown to reduce pain. Freezing is
considered painful due to the formation of
ice crystals on the skin and in tissues. There
is also evidence that freezing may induce
painful ocular and brain damage.
Consequently, hypothermia is not consid-
ered an acceptable means of euthanizing
reptiles."
I have been doing research on the ori-
gins of the iguanas here in the Keys. There
are accounts of wild green iguanas living in
the Keys from the 1950s, long before these
animals were ever popular as pets, and long
before people were releasing them back to
the wild. I realize that does happen, and it
shouldn't, but my investigations so far
point to the fact that the original green
iguanas were native and not introduced as
feral pets.
The blossoming population of iguanas is
no doubt fueled by the burgeoning human
population. People plant flowers, fruit trees
and other items that are staples in the igua-
na's diet. This attracts the animals to the
yards.
These iguanas are beautiful animals and
should be admired. Remember, they are wild
animals and should not be handled, no more
than you would a Key deer or manatee.

A countywide evaluation of
fire protection in the Keys in
1991 found that the CQnch Key
fire station needs major
upgrades.
Seventeen years later, those
upgrades are finally on the front
burner again, says Jim Callahan,
acting chief of Monroe County
Fire Rescue.
"The financing is in place;
everything is there to build the
station," he said. "All we're
dealing with is the permits to
build it have expired."
Plans include rehabilitating
the truck bays and adding a sec-
ond story for living quarters for
firefighters, space for training
and a day room.
"This means a lot more
room," Callahan said. "We've
been living in trailers for over
two years out there. I absolutely
hope that any talk of expanding
Marathon doesn't affect this
construction."
The $2 million renovation
has been stalled several times,

most recently due to damage
from Hurricane Wilma's storm
surge in 2005, County Engineer
David Koppel says.
"It had been in the works for
some time," he said. "It was
under design, then got flooded
by Hurricane Wilma."
Then, he said, talks with
Marathon officials about possi-
bly building a joint city-county
station held up progress.
"Those talks put this project
in abeyance, and the permit
approvals we had gained
lapsed," Koppel said.
Marathon Vice Mayor Chris
Bull and others say it's time
Conch Key, as well as Ohio Key
and Duck Key, were annexed
into the city. They say that
bringing Duck, Conch and
Sunshine keys into the city,
which incorporated in 1999,
would bring in $650,000 annu-
ally in new tax revenue.
"Preliminary numbers I did
last year said it would be a win-
win situation," Bull told the
Keynoter last week. "It would
lower millage for people in the
city" as well the other three
Keys.
However, Callahan is deter-
mined to rebuild the Conch Key
fire station as a county, not city,
project. He noted that county
firefighters already help with
fire protection on Grassy Key,
which is part of Marathon.
"As far as I'm concerned, it's
just the county," he said. "We
need this station to protect the
people in the county, all the way
up to the Layton area."
"Everything is in line to go
forward," Callahan said. "We
need to build this station."
Callahan says the work is
part of what he's calling "the
Callahan plan" to improve resi-
dents' safety countywide.
"We're rebuilding [the] Big
Pine [fire station] right now," he
says, "and we will be rebuilding
the one on Stock Island shortly.
We're continuing to work on the
training tower. Now we need to
find more career and volunteer
firefighters."
Both Callahan and Koppel
are looking to spring 2009 for
completion of the Conch Key
station.

Willi wants to


lobby commission


He's seeking
a change to
firing language
By ALYSON CREAN
acrean@keynoter.com

Former Monroe County
Administrator Tom Willi wants
to change the terms of his firing.
Willi, now a land-use consult-
ant, is barred from personally
appearing before the County
Commission on behalf of another
person or entity if he's being paid
and it's a quasi-judicial hearing,
unless he's there on behalf of
another governmental agency.
He agreed to that two-year
.ban when he was fired in
December and walked away
with nearly $300,000 in sever-
ance pay. Now he wants it lifted.
"We do planning and land use
consulting, work with agencies
and environmental permitting
and [building permit] process-
ing," Willi said. "We also do
alternative construction inspec-
tion programs and [Americans
with Disabilities Act] compli-
ance assistance. We're strictly
consultants in those areas."
Willi said that in a communi-
ty as small as the Keys, "some
parts of these projects have to
cross a county desk at some
point. We don't want anyone
saying this is improper."
Commissioner George
Neugent says he would
"absolutely not" vote to let Willi
start lobbying now.
"It's a. slap in the face for
every county employee we've
had to let go in correcting the
financial mess that Mr. Willi left
us with."
Commissioner Sylvia Murphy
agreed.
"I wouldn't waive that for
anything in this world," she said.
County Mayor Mario Di
Gennaro leans the other way.
"If he wants to work as a con-
sultant, how is it any harm to the
county?" he asked. "It only has
to do with the startup business of
his own. I don't see how it could
hurt the county. He has a lot of
knowledge. I don't like to tie
hands with a non-compete
unless it harms the county."
"I have no idea what he's try-


ing to do," Commissioner Dixie
Spehar said. But she said she
worries about changing a stan-
dard contract.
Willi said that if allowed to
appear before the commission in
a lobbying role, it would make it
easier to provide his clients serv-
ice "without having to provide
them a qualifier. It clears up
some issues."


Willi agreed
to a two-year
ban when he
was fired in
December
and walked
away with
nearly
$300,000 in
severance
pay.


Willi's three-year tenure as
county administrator was rife
with controversy. His recom-
mendations and .decisions often
bitterly divided the commission.
In December, the commission
voted unanimously to fire him
without cause. That came nine
months after he survived a previ-
ous vote to fire him.
Willi has been blamed for
drawing down the county's
budget reserves, leaving it with
precariously low resources.

Report: Hurricanes helped, hurt reef


Lower temps
minimized
coral bleaching
By KEVIN WADLOW
Senior Staff Writer
kwadlow@keynoter.com

Hurricanes that battered many
Florida Keys corals in 2005 may
have saved others.
Water temperatures were ris-
ing through the summer of 2005,
setting the stage for a major
coral-bleaching event, recounts a
federal report on U.S. reefs
released Monday. Then came
hurricanes Katrina, Rita and


Wilma.
"While severe coral bleaching
events were observed and record-
ed in other parts of the U.S.
Caribbean, the Florida Keys
escaped most of the stressful
environmental conditions experi-
enced elsewhere," notes the Keys
section of "The State of Coral
Reef Ecosystems of the United
States and Pacific Freely
Associated States: 2008."
The latest edition of the feder-
al report, issued every four years,
was released Monday at the 11th
International Coral Reef
Symposium in Fort Lauderdale.

allowing for mixing of the sur-
face waters due- to intense
winds," says the report.
But the hurricanes also took a
toll, according to the report.
"Many marine habitats sur-
veyed...suffered obvious physical
damage [such as] overturned
coral colonies and scouring from
the storms that hit the region."
That mix of good news and
bad captures the state of the Keys
coral reef, said Ken Nedimyer, a
Tavernier coral-transplant expert
who advises the Florida Keys
National Marine Sanctuary.
"Every time things seem to be
looking better, we get a storm or
bleaching event," Nedimyer said.
"Overall, I'd say our reef is hold-
ing its own but it's not getting any
better."
More than 2,000 experts from
around the globe are meeting at
the symposium in Fort
Lauderdale this week to share
information on reef threats and
possible solutions.
The federal government's
569-page report covers U.S. reefs
from the Caribbean to the far
Pacific.
"This is absolutely a call to
action," said Kacky Andrews, a
former Keys sanctuary adminis-
trator now serving as manager of
the federal Coral Reef
Conservation Program. "There is
no quick fix."

Hurricanes and storms cooled the surface of the water in 2005
and 2006, which helped prevent coral from, bleaching.


The report outlines the known,
state of the reef worrisome
loss of hard corals, proliferation
of algae and declining water qual-
ity.
Problems include climate
change, water pollution that is
turning the seas more acidic,
overfishing, coral diseases and
marine debris from the growing
population of coastal areas.
At Keys survey sites, an esti-
mated 73 percent of elkhorn coral
has been lost. Even the hardier
boulder corals have seen losses of
about 37 percent.


"The reef looks very different
than when I first saw it 10 years
ago," said Cori Hasty, a dive
instructor at Looe Key Reef
Resort and Dive Center in the
Lower Keys. "But you can see
places where the coral is grow-
ing. We all have to do the little
things to help protect it. It's still a
beautiful reef."
The federal report rates nearly
half of U.S. coral-reef ecosys-
tems as being in "poor" or "fair"
condition.
"We need to redouble our
efforts to protect this critical
resource," said Conrad C.
Lautenbacher Jr., NOAA's chief
administrator.
In the Keys, the report says,
"Many of the causes of the large
coral decline originate beyond
the jurisdiction of local resource
managers. For example, algal
blooms in the Florida Keys are
influenced by nutrients and water
flows from the Everglades and
southwest Florida coast."
The report does note some
positive indications in efforts to
preserve coral:
a steady five-year decrease
in boat groundings on Keys
corals, from 721 reported ground-
ings in 2002 to 301 in 2006;
greater public environmen-
tal awareness;
an increase in marine
reserve areas intended to limit
human affects on coral; and
signs that algae-eating sea
urchins, which virtually disap-
peared from the reef more than 20
years ago, are making a slow
comeback.

City starts budgeting for 2008-09


Tax increase
on the horizon
for Marathon
By RYAN McCARTHY
mccarthy@keynoter.com

The city of Marathon is
scheduled to begin a lengthy
budget process next week that
will likely include a tax
increase due to a $93 million


decrease in the city's taxable
property value.
City Manager Clyde
Burnett said the decrease from
$3.07 billion to $2.97 billion
represents a 3 percent decline.
But he still plans to meet
the rollback tax rate while
possibly maintaining the cur-
rent millage rate of 1.4243, or
$1.4243 per $1,000 of
assessed property value. .


Rollback is the tax rate
needed to raise the same
amount of revenue next fiscal
year as the current one. At the
current rate, the owner of a
$300,000 home in Marathon
would pay $427 in property
taxes.
The city Finance
Department is still formulat-
ing a preliminary budget and
rollback numbers for the next
fiscal year were unavailable at
press time.


Layton, KCB to see tax hikes


By RYAN McCARTHY-
mccarthy@leyhoter.com

Residents of Key Colony
Beach and Layton can expect
increases in their property
taxes for the fiscal year starting
Oct. 1.
Both Key Colony Mayor
Ron Sutton and Layton Mayor
Norman Anderson said that's
necessary for their respective
cities to meet rollback, the tax
rate needed to raise the same
amount of revenue next fiscal
year as the: current one. The
reason: Property values are
down due to the slumping
housing market.
Key Colony Beach officials
meet today at 9:30 a.m. at City
Hall, while Layton officials are
scheduled to meet at 6:30 p.m.
Thursday at that city's City
Hall.
Key Colony's taxable value
this year is nearly $798 mil-


lion, down $75.5 million from
last year's $873 million.
A preliminary budget shows
an increase in the city's millage
rate from 1.3092 this year to
1.4434, or $1.4434 per $1,000
of assessed property value, next
year.
According to that figure, the
owner of a $300,000 home in
Key Colony would pay $433 in
property taxes. Early estimates
show ad valorem tax revenues
of almost $1.2 million, with a
total budget of $2.78 million.
Among Key Colony's
largest expenses: $582,185 for
law enforcement, $276,575 for
financial and administration
services and $230,650 for
ambulance and rescue service.
In Layton, Anderson's
administrative assistant, Skip
Haring, said a preliminary
millage rate of 1.1234 will be

presented Thursday. That's up
from the current 1.1 rate. A
preliminary budget is still in
the works.
Layton's taxable value this
year is, $76,573,172, down
$2.78 million from last year's
$79,358,094.
Haring said the city doesn't
have large projects in the
works and is still awaiting pay-
ment on an $800,000 grant
from the U.S. Army Corps of
Engineers for completing its
sewer system two years ago.


Burnett said he recently
received a "wish list" from
each of his department heads
and is reviewing them in
preparation for a July 15
budget meeting.
The council will adopt a
proposed millage rate and
select dates, times and places
for public hearings at that
meeting, scheduled for 5:30
p.m. at the fire station at
Florida Keys Marathon
Airport. .
"I'm a rollback type guy
from year's past and I think
we're going to be able to get
there," Burnett said of his time
as Key Colony Beach mayor
and administrator. "I know our
current rate is 1.4243; that's
what I'm shooting for and I


know it's below rollback."
. The final number for this
fiscal year was 10 percent
below rollback, well beyond
the 5 percent mandated by
state tax reform legislation
calling for cuts in property tax
assessments.
Burnett said he hasn't had
any early recommendations
from council members recom-
mending further cuts and that
he doesn't plan on having to
cut services or eliminate p6si-,
tions to meet rollback.
"We're still hopefully going
to be able to give satisfactory
cost-of-living adjustments,"
he said, noting the expense of
living South Florida. "I'm
hoping to give those and
maybe even a merit" raise.

Chief: Changes being made


Investigation
determines cops
cheated on exams
By KYLE TEAL
kteal @ keynoter.com

Key West Police Chief Donie
Lee says "everybody in the
department has been put on
notice and warned" about strict-
ly following policy now that the
Internal Affairs Division has
determined officers cheated on a
certification exam.
The Florida Department of
Law Enforcement conducted a
similar investigation into cor-
ruption allegations against the
department, and its findings
were released this week.
Internal Affairs' probe ended in
June. That gap was so the State
Attorney's Office could review
the results.


The prob-
lems came to
light after
then-officer.
Neary, who
has since been
fired for

NEARY lying about
being a feder-
al agent, sued the department in
December alleging defamation
of character and corruption
within the department.
The FDLE stepped in, and
Neary told investigators he saw
officer Tara Smith in the
Emergency Operations Center
around May 2007 with six to 10
computers logged onto comput-
er training programs. Neary said
Smith told him he was "catching
up everyone" on the Law
Enforcement Training Network.


Neary was one of the officers
who was reportedly catching up,
the report says.
Smith told investigators that
Sgt. Garfield Williams directed
her to set up a training video.
Officers reportedly watched the
video and took an exam togeth-
er, sharing answers in the
process.
Lee said, "We are taking
measures in reference to the
online testing to ensure that
something like this doesn't hap-
pen again. All of the officers
suspected to have been involved
in whatever form of cheating
will be required to retake the
sections."
Neary also alleged officer
Janeth Del Cid failed her
firearms training certification in
July 2006. It's not clear from the
FDLE's findings if she did but
Neary told FDLE investigators
he was trained as range master
in New Jersey, where he worked


prior to coming to the Keys.
The state looked into that
claim and received a letter from
New Jersey's Police Training
Commission saying he has
never been a certified instructor.
Neary's attorney, Mick
Barnes, said he has a document
proving Neary is certified. He
didn't provide a copy of it by
press time.
"Still looking at our process-
es," said Lee, who was not
police chief when the investiga-
tion occurred. "We've made
steps to improve our Internal
Affairs process. I am fully con-
fident in IA today. We're not
perfect. FDLE gave me sugges-
tions. I welcome them."
The FDLE investigation
started in January and ended in
April. The Key West Police
Department's internal investiga-
tion started in May and ended
June 26.

Police overtime targeted for 2009


Bahama Village
operations
could be hit
By KYLE TEAL
kteal@keynoter.com

Key West residents can
expect reduced police activity
in Bahama Village if city
budget cuts eliminate $65,000
in overtime from the 2008-09
budget, Interim Police Chief
Donie Lee says.
The current year's overtime
was budgeted at $90,000,
according to city Finance
Director Roger Wittenberg.
That funding ends in
September and with it, other
police operations.


Fourth of July
visitors had an
easier time going
By KEVIN WADLOW
Senior Staff Writer
kwadlow@keynoter.com

Homebound motorists had
another reason to celebrate the
nation's holiday July 4: Free
travel on Card Sound Road.
The $1 toll was lifted Sunday
to tempt more drivers off crowd-'
ed U.S. 1 as thousands of visi-
tors ended their long Fourth of
July weekend.
By all reports, it worked.
Northbound traffic on U.S. 1
was stopped, at times, but
sources say it was an improve-
ment over the last big holiday
weekend.
"It wasn't nearly as bad as
Memorial Day," said Abby
Kelley, a spokeswoman for the
highway reconstruction project
north of Key Largo.
After Memorial Day,. state
and local officials devised a new
strategy for July 4.
A traffic pattern through the
construction area near mile
marker 106 was changed to
make merging into a single lane
easier, and crews also made
access to Card Sound Road more
.. . .... . . . .


"It's going to mean a reduc-
tion in services," Lee said.
"We want to be able to do spe-
cial drug operations and a lot
of the work we do is on over-
time. Not all of it, but some of
it is."
Funding for police opera-
tions in Bahama Village over-
all will decrease by $37,168,
Lee said, "dropping from
$330,714 this year to
$293,546 in the 2008-09 budg-
et. That money comes from
property tax revenue set aside
for blighted areas in need of
redevelopment, also known as
tax increment financing.
Lee said that financing
funds four police officer
salaries a hot topic among


visible after the alternate route
was nearly ignored by Memorial
Day travelers.
"There was some of the nor-
mal congestion we get during
periods of heavy traffic but I
haven't heard of any extraordi-
nary congestion," said Lt. David
Folsom from the Florida
Highway Patrol headquarters in
Marathon. "During the few peak
hours it was busy."
Traffic did back up at times
south of Snake. Creek Bridge,"
where legally reqtiired openings
of the lone remaining draw-
bridge on U.S. 1 for tall boats
did result in stoppages.
"Sometimes there are just too
many cars on the road," said
Becky Herrin, information offi-
cer for the Monroe County
Sheriff's Office.
At one point Friday, traffic
was briefly halted on both U.S. 1
and Card Sound Road by rela-
tively minor accidents.
Traffic often backed up near
the old Jewfish Creek Bridge
because of drawbridge openings.
With the partial opening of the
new-elevated Jewfish Creek
Bridge in May, traffic can now
keep moving in both directions.
Ongoing construction work
will slow traffic through the
work area.


some Key West residents who
push for property tax 'revenue
to be distributed evenly across
the entire island.
But Lee and other officers
point out Bahama Village's
need for extra law enforce-
ment, especially when it
comes to drug sales.
City Commissioner Clayton
Lopez, whose district includes
.Bahama Village, says he's OK
with transferring the TIF funds
t- the general fund because
the city faces -such a tight
budget year.
But Lopez has criticized
how money has been used,
adding that he'd rather police
funds for all of the city,
including Bahama Village,
come out of the city's general
fund, not TIF.
He said the special taxing
district revenues should be
used for neighborhood infra-
structure repairs, such as
improvements at Nelson
English Park, more sidewalks
and light fixtures.
Lopez makes recommenda-
tions on TIF and how much
should, go to the police; his
fellow commissioners then


vote on his recommendations.
Wittenberg said he's still
working on a budget and that
$25,000. in overtime "might
increase tomorrow. We never
sat down with the commis-
sioners, and there is nothing to
keep them from increasing it
by pulling money out of
reserves." -
Lee said more overtime is
needed, as officers often make


late arrests or have to show up
in court to defend a charge.
Either way, he said, the police
presence won't diminish, only
special operations.
"I don't think the presence
will change," he said. "But I
think certainly that we would
have to reduce the number of
operations we do for Bahama
Village."

Maloney Spottswood. Robert,
who was on vacation and not
available for comment, will play
an integral role in the new busi-
ness, according to Batty.
This is not the start of a busi-
ness relationship between the
Spottswoods and Batty. They've
been working together for about a
year and a half, closing on
Beachside Resort and
Conference Center's residential
units.
SBX Cpmmercial Real Estate
Inc. will employ three staff mem-
bers and four agents and is
expected to open in the next 30
days. Batty will be president of
the newly-formed company.

A calmer market
Hikes in residential real estate
values followed by steep declines
have made it a rough ride for
many residential real estate
agents. But commercial real
estate has been a more consistent,
steady market, Batty says. "It did
not have the run up in value like
the residential market did," Batty
added. "It's a market that's
always been based on reality."
"We're just seeing more qual-
ified buyers that are still seeing
the value of the Keys market
down here," says Curtis Skomp,
who specializes in commercial
real estate. Many properties in
the Old Town area display his
for-sale signs. "People are a little
more cautious. But all in all, I
think people are starting to feel a


little more comfortable," he says.
Batty said that even though
SBX has yet to officially open,
he's acted as the broker for retail
stores such as.Banana Republic,
Coach and Express on Duval
Street.

Oldie but a goodie
In 1903, the brick building that
SBX is moving into was a phar-
macy called Key West Drug Co.
It was owned by John Bartlum
Maloney. His son-in-law, Robert
Fleming Spottswood, helped run
the business, which took off in
1908, after an explosion injured
workers who'd been hired to
build the Overseas Railway.
Robert Fleming Spottswood


was Robert Spottswood's grand-
father.
After it was remodeled and
expanded in 1911, the building
was .renamed the John B.
Maloney Memorial Hospital, and
for 36 years it sold only "pure
drugs," according to an essay on
the building's history hanging on
the offices' wall.
The Spottswood family has
owned the building from the
beginning, but rented it out to
Truman and Co. Real Estate
Services, and most recently to
Key West Vacation Co.
The two floors above the SBX
offices are being renovated to
make one two-story residential
unit.


'Bur' heats up Dade economy


'BURN NOTICE' / From 15

between 1984 and 1989.
"Bum Notice" has brought a
rare stretch of steady employ-
ment to dozens of casting agents,
grips, make-up artists, film tech-
nicians and other local crew
members who are used to the
feast-and-famine cycle of South
Florida's production industry.
"Sometimes I don't work for
a month," camera operator Al
"Tico" Pavoni said, during a
break filming a "Bum Notice"
scene in Hollywood three weeks
ago. The Miami Beach resident
said he worked a total of 12 days
after the show's first season
wrapped last August, ending five


months of steady filming.
Florida taxpayers subsidize
many of the paychecks on the
"Burn Notice" set, putting the
series at the center of a debate
over how much government sup-
port Hollywood really needs to
film on location.
Between shooting its pilot in
December 2006 and the expected
wrap on the second season this
October, "Bum Notice" is on
track to collect about $4.2 mil-
lion under Florida's new incen-
tive program, which refunds up
to 22 percent of the money
shows and movies spend in the
state.
The show's creator, Matt Nix,
originally wanted "Burn Notice"
set in Newark, N.J. But USA


balked at the idea, saying it want-
ed a "blue skies" setting, said
Gabriel Marano, head of scripted
programming for Fox Television
Studios, which produces "Bum
Notice" for USA.
That made Miami a top candi-
date, but producers told state
officials they couldn't come
without a sizable subsidy. "The
economics of the .basic cable
world pretty much mean you've
got to go to a place with a
rebate," said Bob Lemchen, sen-
ior vice president of physical
production for Fox Television.
"Burn Notice" expects to
spend about $12.5 million in
Florida this year filming the sec-
ond season.

Save Our Conchs to raise
money for families whose

people with rent and provides
the necessary accountability.

month. His bid for a fourth straight Olympics ended this week in Omaha.



Olympic bids end



for Keys hopefuls


Hall, Miller
don't make it
out of Trials
By KEVIN WADLOW
Senior Staff Writer
kwadlow@keynoter.com

Gary Hall Jr. can now focus on
his spearfishing.
Hall, 33, took fourth in the
finals of his signature event, the
50-meter freestyle, at this week's
U.S. Olympic Trials in Omaha,
Neb.
That means the two-time
Olympic champion will not be in
the pool for a fourth straight
Olympics. Hall competed for the


U.S. at the games in Atlanta,
Sydney and Athens, winning 10
medals, including five golds.
His father, Gary Hall Sr., and
other family members manage
the swimming programs at-
Islamorada's Founders Park and
run an affiliated training group,
The Race Club.
Hall Jr. frequently trained in
Islamorada, where he also enjoys
going on the open water to
spearfish.
Long renowned as swim-
ming's best showman, Hall came
out for the 50 finals in Omaha
Saturday wearing a blue cape
proclaiming him "The Godfather
of Swimming," according to


news accounts.
Garrett Weber-Gale, 22, of
Texas won the 50 finals race with
a record time of 21.47 seconds.
Hall swam a 21.91.
"These guys definitely earned
it. I'm looking forward to watch-
ing them race in Beijing," Hall
told reporters. "The future of
sprinting in the United States is a
bright one, and it'll carry on a
long tradition that I'm honored to
be a part of."
Nathan Adrian, 19, of
Bremerton, Wash., earned a spot

Fish count in 17th year


Free ID class
set for July 19
at Horizon Divers
If you can count and you love
the water, the Reef Environ-
mental Education Foundation in
Key Largo wants you.
The group plans to participate
in the 17th Great Annual Fish
Count July 19. It's an internation-
al eco-event in which volunteer
divers and snorkelers help identi-
fy and document fish diversity
and population trends. The num-
bers are used by marine
researchers, resource managers
and policy makers to help them
assess the condition of the reef
ecosystem.
At 9 a.m. that day, a free fish
identification class with Joe
Cavanaugh, director of field
operations for REEF, is sched--


uled at Horizon Divers, 100
Ocean Drive at mile marker 99.7.
Tally sheets for the fish count are
to be distributed during the class.
With their newly learned fish
ID skills, divers and snorkelers
can collect data that will be
aggregated with counts from
around the world, adding to the
117,677 surveys already submit-
ted for research.
After the fish ID class,
Horizon Divers hosts the Keys
count with Cavanaugh the same
day. Boats leave the dock at 1:30


Pay tribute


.p.m. Horizon Divers is offering a
10 percent discount off the cost of
the dive charter and rental equip-
ment for those participating in the
fish count.
Divers can also organize their
own fish count dives with a dive
operator or through a dive club.
To get free scan forms and infor-
mation about marine survey
materials, visit www.reef.org.
Survey results also can be report-
ed online.

Keys Fishing


Offshore
There are schools of small
dolphin ,with birds overhead
to give away their location.
and every so often those
birds are on nice gaffer fish.
Capt. Paul Johnson on the
Reef Runner out of Isla-
morada found a piece of flot-
sam the past week but there
were seemingly no dolphin
around. The skilled veteran
just made several concentric
circles around the debris, and
about a quarter mile a% ay
from the debris were the
fish. His team boated a 35-
pound cow and a 51-pound
bull Ah, perseverance.

Reefs
Mangrove snapper are
a absolutely chewing the bot-
tom out of the boats in dark-
ness in the shallows. But
don't hesitate to go after the
mangroves in daylight
Find a rocky patch just
inside the reef. The water
depth will be from 15 to 25
feet. Anchor just up current
and put out a bag of chum.
With the money you save on
fuel since you'll be only rwo
or three miles out, spring for
silversides to sprinkle in
Nour drifted bait.
The limit on mangrove
snapper is five per person
per day.

Gulf, bay
There's still pretty good
action on the big trout and
snapper adjacent to Yacht
Channel. Drift and jig but
don't chum unless you like
catfish.
The water is around 85
degrees first thing in the
morning and sometimes
climbs up close to 90
degrees on some hot days, so
fish a little deeper.

Flats, backcountry
Some good snook have
been caught in the Flamingo
area. from micros to fish over
the slot size of 33 inches. But
remember, snook season is
closed and all fish must be
released.

Mom Rae and ; ,-
daughter Jen took
the top two spots --
at the fifth annual
Conch Republic
Ladies Dolphin
*Championship.
They also won the
boat prize for their
two fish combined
and took home
$7,000, not bad for w
a day out fishing. .-


It's 1st and 2nd for


daughter and mother


Burnses combine
their talents,
land $7,000 prize
The ladies are riding high -
for two consecutive weeks,
female anglers have dominated.
Last week it was in the Burdines
Fun Fishing Tournament in
Marathon. This past weekend, it
was in the Conch Republic
Ladies Dolphin Tournament -
and it was actually two women
who dominated, Jen Bums of
Cudjoe Key and her mom, Rae.
Jen, the first-ever female Key
West High School graduate to
earn a presidential appointment
to West Point, wanted some down
time with her family in the Keys
before heading- back in August
for her final year at the Army
academy.
Jen, who shot sports photos
for the Keynoter while she was in
high school, caught the largest
fish of the tournament, a 33.3-
pounder, to round out the best day
fishing her and her family have
ever had. Rae secured second
place with a 27.7-pound dolphin.
"We were really slackers. We
did not get up when we were sup-
posed to, so we were running
around getting the boat ready and
ended up leaving 'almost at 8


o'clockk"
C l umn Rae says.
"We had
intended to
be on the
water with
lines in by

e which
obviously
did not
happen."
When
they did
Cal Sutphin finally get
out, "We
were off of Big Pine to the east in
about 850 feet of water and found
some nice big giant patches of
weeds. We had the baits out with
everything looking really nice
when bam!, a dolphin hit and I
started fighting it.
"We didn't just bring it to the
boat because we wanted to see if
there was another one swimming
around it, which sure enough,
there was a big bull right next to
mine. Jen grabbed a spinning rod
with a ballyhoo on it and pitched
it, left the bail open and hooked
up the winning fish. What a great
way to start the day, with the two
biggest fish."
The Burns family, led by
father Jeff, a charter captain, was
fishing on their boat On the Fly
and had one of those perfect days..


"The rest of the day we just
kept thinking we needed a 40-
pounder. We knew we had two
nice fish but probably not big
enough to win," Rae says.
"The rest of the day was
amazing. We were throwing back
7- to 10-pound fish and keeping
only those over 20 pounds. As
good as it was, we just kept say-
ing if our day is this awesome,
everyone must be catching fish."
She said the entire trip was
"like a Chinese fire drill, from get-
ting up late and rushing to catch
fish all day and being intense to
finally ending the day at 2:45
because we had a long run back in.
"When we were pulling in,
Jeff asked when the scales [at the
Conch Republic Seafood Co. in
Key West] closed and Jen said
4:30. It was 3:30 at that time and
we live in Cudjoe. Jen and I
rushed into the house to change
while Jeff was figuring out the
two largest fish to put in the cool-
er bag and, of course we got stuck
behind every slow car on the way
to Key West. When the guy at the
scale saw our two fish, he said it
looks like we have a new leader
and we just couldn't believe it.
We were just hoping to place and
get a little money. It was great."
Actually, the Burns family did

Go deep, real deep, for the larger catches


But be sure
your tackle's
strong enough
The nice weather and calm
seas have combined to award
anglers with some fine catches
lately.
The deep waters off .shore
(more than 700 feet) have pro-
duced some very large dolphin;
tunas, wahoo and more than a
couple of David vs. Goliath sto-
ries. Or if you prefer, "The Old
Man and the Sea:"'
Anglers that have been ventur-
ing well off shore have also been
coming in contact, many not
intentionally, with billfish of
rather large proportions.
When trolling with 20-pound
test rigs, you're not anticipating
hooking marlin that are more
than 300 pounds at least not
with reels with rather small


.-"7 ':J
i- '
am, -


amounts of
line on
them.
For the
most part,
the reports
I've heard
had the fish
taking care
of the limit-
ed line in a
very limit-
ed amount


.... of time. To
Dave Navarro understand
how fast it
goes and how loud the reel sings,
just go to the highway and hook a
truck.
Others who have hooked mon-
ster billfish have had a shot at a
good fight, even on light tackle,
because they have a more sub-
stantial amount of line. A dozen
anglers have reported they caught
(brought to the boat and released)
blue marlin the past several days.


The fish are there and it only
takes the time to go to where they
live and a little bit of luck.
Most of the releases were esti-
mated at fewer than 350 pounds
- which is unusual for-fisher-


men; by the time they hit the
dock, most big fish released have
doubled, if not tripled, in size,
and swelled even more the next
day or two, if you get my drift.
All of this is not to say that

tive. However, most have been on

the smaller side. The exception
has been wahoo, which have
been caught in the nearshore
area, in water from 150 to 350
feet deep. There was also a run
7of sailfish one day last week
along the 180- to 200-foot line.
Quite a few were hooked, caught
or just spotted free jumping.
The reef has also been active.
The best action by far has been


in the evenings. It is also much
more comfortable, as -the day-
time fishing, with little or no
wind, gives you the feeling of
being in your daughter's Easy
Bake Oven.
The action has varied from
deep to rather shallow, depend-
ing on where you went along the
reef line. The sharper the drop-
off you can find, the better
results you'll have. Critters are
abundant so use sturdy-enough
tackle to retrieve the fish in a


timely manner or you may have
them pre-filleted. Frozen bait has
been the choice for most; silver-
sides have been the best.
For more information on the
snapper spawn, the summer tar-
pon fishing, offshore action and
any other type of fishing, stop by
and see us at our new location at
3740 Overseas Highway,
Marathon, next to Annette's. We
have live bait and all of the other
supplies you need.

cool $7,000.
Rae Bums narrowly-edged out
third-place finisher Vicki Hanks

with Capt. Tom Ault aboard the
Reel Appeal; she had a 27.6-


pound fish. Just missing third
place was Madelene Lembo of
Key West, fishing with her hus-
band Chris Lembo on the
Incognito; she landed a 27.1-
pound dolphin. Rounding out the
top five was Amy Tennyson of
Key West, fishing aboard the
Equity Too owned by Pete
Rutskin. Hers dolphin weighed
22.9 pounds.
Tournament Director John
Stuempfig said 21 boats were
