Democrats



jump to GOP


Hotly contested
GOP primaries
could be reason
BY ALYSON CREAN
acrean@keynoter.com

Monroe County Democrats
have jumped ship.
It happens every year, but
Supervisor of Elections Harry
Sawyer says the number of voters
that have switched-to Republican


since July 1 alone 134 is
enough to call it a trend.
"Just last week, we had 67
people switch to Republicans,"
Sawyer said. "We've seen it hap-
pening in all three offices Key
West, Marathon and Tavemier."
-In comparison, just 24 voters
have switched their registration
from Republican to Democrat
since July 1.
Monday was the last day to
register to vote for the Aug. 26
primary election and the last


day to switch party affiliation for
the primary.
It's doubtful that 110 voters
would shape an election in a
county where there are 17,828
registered Republicans and
16,843 Democrats.
Still, some say a push was on
to get Democrats switched to
Republican go they could have an
early say in some high-profile
races, including three for County
Commission and the race for
sheriff.

Mini-season
is under way
on Keys waters
By KEVIN WADLOW
Senior Staff Writer
kwadlow@keynoter.com

Some divers in the lobster
mini-season that opens today
may be surprised if they come
across a crustacean.
"We're seeing a lot of people
new to lobstering," said state
marine officer Bobby Dube, on
duty Monday manning the
Lobster Information Booth in
Key Largo.
"People who say they're here
for lobster season have actually
asked: What do they look like?"
Dube said.
"Everybody seems to ask how
many lobster they can take," said
Dube, a 20-year Fish and
Wildlife Conservation
Commission veteran. "It's amaz-
ing how many [divers] this year
never tried it before or don't have
enough experience to know the
basics."
As if on cue, a visitor to the
booth inquired about the "boat
limit" for mini-season.
"We haven't had a lobster
boat limit for several years,"
Dube replied evenly. "There was
never a boat limit in mini-sea-
son."
That's the purpose of the
booth at mile marker 106 to
educate some of the 30,000
snorkelers and divers on the
water today and Thursday in pur-
suit of their lobster limit (six per
person per day, or 12 for the two
days).
About 260 people stopped by

FEMA list gets Keys airing


Feds coming
down to talk
and respond
Reporter Staff

U.S. Rep. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen
is coming to the Keys this week-
end to host a public discussion
that will focus on the status of
Key properties deemed unbuild-
able because of endangered
species.
At issue is a 2005 federal
judge's decision to not allow the
Federal Emergency Management
Agency to issue flood insurance
for thousands of Keys lots
because they contain endangered
species habitat; those lots came to
be known as part of the "FEMA
list."
Coverage under FEMA's
National Flood Insurance
Program is required for most new
construction loans. That means
the owners of most of those lots
can't build.


The congresswoman's session
is at the Marathon Government
Center Saturday from 10 a.m. to
noon and. will include officials
from FEMA and the U.S. Fish
and Wildlife Service.
"The congresswoman will be
attending the event and will intro-
duce all federal officials attend-
ing," says her spokesman, Alex
Cruz. "Attendees are welcome to
ask questions of her, however,
she is not a party to the litigation
so we expect that a bulk of the
questions will be to FEMA and
Fish and Wildlife."'
Also invited, are the National
Wildlife Federation, Florida
Wildlife Federation and
Defenders of Wildlife, all of
which sued the federal agencies
for violating the Endangered
Species Act and threatening the
habitat of eight Keys species.
Those groups' attorney, Henry
Morgenstern, has said his clients
likely won't attend.
The case began in 1990, when
the environmental groups filed
suit seeking to compel FEMA to


consult with Fish and Wildlife
over where flood insurance can
be issued. The groups claimed
issuing flood insurance, and
thereby allowing development,
on certain properties jeopardized
the habitat of endangered and
threatened species.
In 2005, U.S. District Court-
Judge Michael Moore granted the
plaintiffs' motion for an injunc-
tion to stop FEMA from issuing
flood insurance for new develop-
ment in the suitable habitat for
the endangered species.
At first, 50,000 properties
were affected, but now about
15,000 remain on the list. The
others were removed after it was
determined they were not home
to habitat for the endangered
species.
The species at issue are the
Key Largo cotton mouse, Key
Largo wood. rat,- Low.er Keys
marsh rabbit, Schaus' swallowtail
butterfly, silver rice rat, Stock
Island tree snail, Garber's sponge
and Key tree cactus.


Mariners Hospital

More than 100


pay respects


Bajusz was first
fireman in county
to die on a call
By RYAN McCARTHY
rmnccarthy@keynoter.com

Representatives from fire
departments and law enforce-
ment agencies Keyswide
turned out Monday for the
memorial service of Conch
Key resident Johnny Bajusz.
The longtime Conch Key
and 'Layton Volunteer Fire
Department member died July
18 from injuries sustained in a
January collision as he
responded to an emergency
call. He was the first firefight-
er in the county to ever die in
the line of duty.
Bajusz died more than six
months after the accident and
just one day after returning
home from prolonged stays in
mainland hospitals. His
injuries were so severe that
one of his legs had to be
amputated.
The memorial was held
inside a" packed Monroe
County Sheriff's Office air-
plane hangar at Florida Keys
Marathon Airport. The family


of Bajusz sat in the front row
as friends and colleagues
shared memories of their fall-
en friend.
The memorial began with a
6 p.m. procession of fire
engines, ambulances and
police cars from Conch Key
to Marathon. The vehicles
drove underneath the extend-
ed ladders of two fire engines
on the southbound lanes of
U.S. 1, from which hung a
massive American flag.
Guests perused a display of
memories from Bajusz's life,
including photographs, signs
made by his grandchildren,
his Layton volunteer uniform
and a medallion celebrating
28 years of sobriety from
Alcoholics Anonymous.
* Bajusz was heavily
involved as a sponsor with
Alcoholics Anonymous in
Monroe County, serving as a
mentor to many recovering
alcoholics.
Bajusz came to the Keys
from Philadelphia more than
35 years ago and took up
work as a commercial fisher-
man on Conch Key. He even-
tually went to work for the
Florida Keys Aqueduct
Authority and retired in April
1999.

Photographs, signs, his Layton volunteer uniform, a medallion commemorating 28 years of
sobriety and other mementos from the life of Bajusz were on display at the memorial in the
Sheriff's Office airplane hangar.

Diving, marriage all in a day's work


LOBSTER / From I

Monday after an equally busy
weekend.
"With the fines as high as they
are, it's a good idea to make sure
you're doing it right," said Tim
Summers of Dallas, Texas.
"When in doubt, throw [the lob-
ster] out of the boat."
Summers enjoyed his first
mini-season experience so much
a couple years ago that he man-
aged to arrange his pending mar-
riage in Key West around the lob-


ster diving days.
"Dive the Spiegel Grove, get
some lobster, get married...," he
says. "It works."
Four firefighters from the
Tampa area arrived Monday in
advance of mini-season.
"We've got a couple guys who
have never done it before so we
decided it was worth it to come
.down here," said Jim Chastain,
returning for mini-season in. the
Keys for the first time "in seven
or eight years."
"Everybody we talked to said
there were a hunch of rule

changes but they all sound about
the same to me," Chastain said.
Divers coming back to the
Keys after several years away
may want to pay attention to
newer rules that ban nearshore
diving throughout most of
Monroe County and all the
municipalities except Key West
during mini-season. That means
canals are off limits.
Even locals go to the informa-
tion booth.
"We come by every year to get
a map showing where we can go
and can't go," said Sara Timothy,
a Key Largo resident who has
been chasing lobster'for 16 years.
Last year, daughters Leilani,
13, and Lorelei, 12, bagged their
first lobster. "We're excited to see
what they can do this year,"
Timothy said. -
One key change for 2008 is
that all egg-bearing lobster of any
subspecies must be released
alive. Previously, only spiny lob-
ster were covered by the egg-
bearing rule..
A single violation taking an
undersized lobster, taking too
many, wringing a tail from a lob-
ster on the water could result
in a fine of $298, Dube said.

Dallas resident Tim Summers watches closely as state marine
Officer Bobby Dube uses a model to demonstrate the correct
way to measure a legal-size lobster.


From the Scuba Outlet shop,
staffer Blake Stincer watched a
fleet of boats being trailered
south past the Key Largo shop.
"I definitely see where it
should be a busy time on the
water," Stincer said. "Friends try-
ing to find a place to stay tell me
every place they've called is
packed."
Earlier this week, reservations
could still be found at several
Upper Keys motels, according to
staff at the Florida Keys Visitor
Center in Key Largo.
At the Greater Marathon
Chamber of Commerce,
Executive Director Daniel


Samess said Tuesday's hotel
check showed "a majority of our
properties had one or two vacan-
cies, but things are picking up
hour by hour."
He noted, "It seems like more
people are coming earlier and
making a week of it. That's what
we like to see."

Early lobstering
lands man in jail

Trying to get an early start on
lobster season ended in a trip to
the Monroe County Detention
Center for a Broward County
man Sunday.
Robert Finder, 45, of
Hollywood faces several misde-
meanor conservation counts and
a more serious charge of interfer-
ing with a wildlife officer,
according to the Florida Fish and
Wildlife Conservation
Commission.
Officer Christopher Mattson
was patrolling a patch reef off
Lower Matecumbe Key when he
reported seeing a man with a'
speargun in state waters.


Spearfishing is illegal in state
waters of the Upper Keys.
When they approached the
diver, identified as Finder, they
told him to retrieve his catch bag
from the bottom at the patch reef.
"Officers say they saw
[Finder] try to dump the contents
of the bag so an officer jumped in
the water to recover them," infor-
mation Officer Bobby Dube relat-
ed.
Charges include possession of
an undersized lobster out of sea-
son, wringing a tail on the water,
and failure to carry a measuring
device.
About 20 extra FWC officers
are expected to be in the Keys
today and Thursday for the lob-
ster sport season. There are also
lobster-sniffing K-9 units.

Rental deadline extended


Just 25 percent.
of applications
accepted so far
By DAVID BALL
dball@keysreporter.com

Those seeking a license for
their vacation rental property in
Islamorada have another month
to apply. Last week, village offi-
cials extended the application
deadline a month, to Sept. 15.
Village officials said problems
arose for some of Islamorada's
largest vacation rental agents,
who couldn't acquire the neces-
sary tax documents from the
county and state to meet the
requirements of the village,
although a solution is apparently
in the works.
"It's been going well, except
there's been some issues with
people who have group licenses,"
Planning Director Ed Koconis
said. "We're trying to get to an
agreement that is acceptable by
the ordinance."
In 2006, the Village Council
passed a law that limits the num-
ber of vacation rentals, defined as
residences rented for more than
seven days and fewer than 28
days, to no more than 331. The
licensing process also seeks to
move vacation rentals out of


many residential neighborhoods
That followed with a long wait
for approval from. the state
Department -- of Community
Affairs and a year of litigation
from property owners who
claimed the law, by limiting
weekly rentals, would force peo-
ple to sell their second homes in
Islatnorada.
The village eventually won
the suit, but Koconis said it
resulted in the ordinance being
"very specific" about how prop-
erties are determined to be legal-
ly established vacation rentals.
Namely, applicants need to pro-
vide a state tax license, county
occupational license and county
bed-tax receipts.
Those who can provide those
documents dating back to
December 2001 receive priority
in the application process.
However, that data has been hard
to get for some.
"I would guess I would have
the most complete records of
anybody, and [planning staff]
haven't accepted them," says
Alex Wheeler of Freewheeler
Realty, which is the largest man-
ager of vacation rental properties
in Islamorada, with about 100
units..
Wheeler said because she pays
her bed taxes in bulk, her county
receipts are not broken out by
individual property.


"Nothing from the county or
state breaks it down by unit,"
Wheeler said. "I do have my own
journals and tax returns from
December 2001 to the village, but
to this date legal staff said that
may not be adequate."
Koconis said most individual
property owners have been able
to obtain the tax receipts and
complete the application process,
which includes payment of a
$1,000 annual license fee. He
said of 27 applications received
so far, seven have been accepted.
After an application is accept-
ed, Islamorada Fire Rescue
begins inspections of properties,
which is required by Oct. 1.
However, some owners and
local contractors have had issues
with some of the codes, including
one that requires smoke detectors
in every bedroom and in every
floor to be interconnected. That
would require expensive and
time-consuming rewiring, in
most cases.
However, Chief William
Wagner said the code allows
some flexibility during inspec-
tions.
"As long as there's not major
issues with other items, we'll
work with them," Wagner said:
"We're not going to hold people
up with their process unless
something's extremely out of
line."

ELECTION / From 1

Not true, Democratic leaders
say.
"No Democrats of whom I'm
aware have been pushing that as
a broad-base course of action,"
says George Maurer, a member
of the Monroe County
Democratic Executive
Committee. "I didn't encourage
that during the Padron-Acevedo
school superintendent race, and
I'm certainly not now." .
Monroe County Democratic
Party Chairman Bill Estes -
running for one of those County
Commission seats agrees.
"I'm completely against it," he
says. ,
However, Keys GOP
Chairwoman Carey Goodman
says there might be something to
it.
"It shows that this is an impor-


tant election," she says. "This
goes on every year, people try to
get people to change persuasion.
It's an old trick."
The three hotly contested
seats for the County Commission
could be the reason for changing
parties.
In District 1, Republican
incumbent Dixie Spehar faces
Kim Wigington in the GOP pri-
mary. In District 3, incumbent
Sonny McCoy faces Carlos
Rojas. And in District 5, incum-
bent Sylvia Murphy goes against
Gary Bauman. Whoever wins
those primaries goes on to face
other candidates in November.
Goodman says that often, vot-
ers change parties, then vote for
the weakest candidate in the pri-
mary. That would leave a weak
contender facing the Democratic
challenger in the Nov. 4 general
election.
Besides the County Comm-


mission primary, there are GOP
primary elections for sheriff
between Phil Mandina and Ken
Davis, and for the Mosquito
Control Board between Pat
Unferth and Andy Williams.
Those who changed their
affiliations for the primary can
change back for the Nov. 4 elec-
tion by Oct. 6, the last day to reg-
ister for that election.
Meanwhile, as of Tuesday,
1,242 absentee ballots had been
received at the Supervisor of
Elections Office, says Deputy
Supervisor Joyce Griffin. On
July 16, 8,832 absentee ballots
were mailed out to voters who
requested them.
I And residents can vote early
beginning Aug. 11 at the elec-
tions offices in Key West,
Marathon and Plantation Key.
Early ballots can also be cast at
the libraries on Big Pine Library
and in Key Largo.

Keys Opinion


Now more than ever,

keep eye on budgets

This year, more than any other, it will be important for taxpay-
ers and voters to attend budget workshops for as many of the
taxing authorities as they can.
In Saturday's paper, we reported on the latest budget propos-
als from some of the cities and the county. Some early signals
are worrisome..
Topping our list of keep-a-close-eye-on-spending: The village
of Islamorada.
Village Manager Ken Fields has brought to his five-member
board a budget that would increase spending by a whopping 23
percent. And Fields said that will be just enough to "maintain
current services," even though he's asking for 16 additional
positions.
Most taxpayers looking at that would say, "Whoa, no way."
Over in the county's budget trenches, things also look grim.
Monday, county commissioners approved a higher millage rate
and a spending plan increase of 18.4 percent..
County Administrator Roman Gastesi called it a "worst-case
scenario" before further trimming commences. While he may be
new to the county's budget process, he's certainly getting an
education fast.
A financial squeeze administered by slumping real estate and a
6 percent drop in the value of the county's property tax roll is
making this year's budget task all the more challenging.
This is the first cycle in nearly a decade when Keys property
values have not been climbing at a rate of 10 percent-plus or
more each year. And that means the same tax rate will raise fewer
dollars hence the need to either cut spending or increase taxes.
Just to cover the county's shortfall means finding another $8
million in spending cuts, according to Gastesi.
Meanwhile, the city of Marathon is looking at reducing its tax
rate below rollback, which is the Holy Grail for fiscally conser-
vative government spending. And the Monroe County School
Board set its tentative millage rate last week at 2.92 (or $292 per
$100,000 in taxable value). That's about 1.5 percent below the
current tax rate.-
"I see the School Board go back to rollback, the city of
Marathon goes below rollback, why can't we?" County
Commissioner George Neugent asked.
That's a good question. To learn the answers, we heartily rec-
ommend attending budget hearings. The county holds its first
one at 5:05 pan. Sept. 10 in the Key Largo library. Islamorada's
first budget hearing is 5:30 pam. Sept. 15 at the Islamorada Fire
Station.
Mark your calendars and plan to attend.

Whoever owns Higgs Beach, taxpayers still pay for it


EDITOR:
Your editorial suggesting the city of Key
West should exercise caution about taking
over Higgs Beach because of anticipated
upgrade costs misses a major point: They are
still our tax dollars regardless of which taxing
entity is paying the bill.
When groups throughout the county decid-
ed to engage in self rule, they should have
taken responsibility for all of the county prop-
erty and services within their jurisdiction.
Unfortunately, they were able to pick and
choose what they wanted. The county has
been trying to convey properties properly
within municipal jurisdiction to the cities ever
since.
Key West got a nice bye when the county
agreed to fix Palm Avenue before conveying it
to the city. This is a good example. Our coun-
ty tax dollars paid for that improvement, and
the Key West City Commission could chortle
that it took over an asset that will not require
expenditures from our city tax dollars for
some years.
Higgs Beach properly should be the
responsibility of Key West and not Monroe
County. It makes no difference to my pocket-
book as a taxpayer from which pot the neces-
sary upgrades come. It certainly makes better
economic sense to have the city manage this
asset, since it manages the park parcels imme-
diately surrounding it. Who knows? It might
even be more cost effective.


Bottom line: It is all about more efficient
management, not which tax entity spends the
money. To me, it makes more sense for the
city to coordinate parks within its boundaries
than have two of my tax-supported govern-
ment bodies overseeing separate elements
adjacent to each other.
-Some 25 years ago, Mayor Richard
Heyman proposed an extraordinary plan to
consolidate the county Higgs Beach, the city
Rest Beach, the city Indigenous Park, the
county Dog Park site (not existing then), the
county West Martello Tower and the city-
leased Federal Aviation Administration site
into one park complex. That concept still
makes sense, but it won't happen with two
government jurisdictions controlling separate
elements.
Whether the county or city pays for the
suggested $500,000 improvements, it will not
change my tax bill. However, if the various
parks in that area are under the city's jurisdic-
tion, perhaps Mayor Morgan McPherson may
come up with a park "grand idea" for the site
that ultimately will be less costly. The average
citizen already thinks Higgs Beach is a city
park, given their calls to Key West police.
Why not let the city take a stab at bringing
those diverse elements together- into a truly
fantastic recreational facility for all to enjoy?

Gang of three steamrolls county


EDITOR:
A fascist undertaking to governance is one
not readily advertised to the citizens at large.
Power corrupts, and the absolute power of
the gang of three, in concert with their dis-
missed and disgraced county manager, have
corrupted and impoverished Monroe County.
Embodied by an arranged brazenness
brought to the County Commission by an
unelected mayor, this gang has rammed its
slash-and-burn theories of corporate develop-
ment down the throats of those citizens who
are determined to preserve a certain quality
of life for themselves, their families and
many of the residents that call the Florida
Keys their home.
Coercion, retribution, deception and force
are the mechanisms employed by this trio as
they work through their pre-ordained agen-
das: Mayor Mario Di Gennaro has demon-
strated a certain penchant for the impetuous.
Never having secured a single vote in our
county has not deterred this designated
mayor from ordering an armed police officer
to approach and discard a woman from a
commission meeting because she silently
exhibited her displeasure with a ruling made
by the county government. As the police
officer stood over this woman, ready to use
whatever force necessary to carry out the
mayor's order, commissioners Sonny McCoy
and Dixie Spehar sat silently. The triumvirate


glared down at this unsuspecting lady from
the dais, with an undisguised abhorrence. It
was a tyrannical scene reminiscent of a dark-
er day in our history.
Since this nation's inception, it has taken
a steady stream of blood and the countless
loss of American lives to defend and rid our-
selves of the very same behavior that was
exhibited by these county commissioners on
that day.

Commission hikes property taxes


By ALYSON CREAN
acrean@keynoter.com


The Monroe County
Commission on Monday unani-
mously approved a tentative mill-
age rate of 3.234, likely meaning
higher taxes in fiscal year 2008-
09.,
That rate means the average
property owner in unincorporated
Monroe County is looking at an
average tax bill of $323 per
$100,000 in value. For a house
valued at $350,000, the bill
would be $1,130.
The current millage is 2.73, or
$273 per $100,000 of assessed
taxable value. That means the


owner of the same $350,000
house paid $956 in county taxes
this year.
The proposed general fund
budget is $87 million, 18.4 per-
cent higher than this year's $79
million budget.
"This is a worst-case scenario
budget," Gastesi told the com-
mission. "We're working on
summer studies that we think can
generate some revenues and have
some savings. But we don't know
what those will be."
During Monday's meeting in
Marathon, department heads
filed before the commission,


pointing out where they had cut
costs and presenting their budget
requests for the coming year.
"We've spent the year adjust-
ing our spending to prepare for
this budget crisis," Growth
Management Director Andrew
Trivette said.
His department's request for
$8.4 million is 22.3 percent lower
than this year's budget of $10.8
million.
Community Services, which
oversees programs for senior,
libraries, animal shelters and
transportation for the elderly and
indigent, will be reduced by 35
percent in 2008-09, Director Deb
Barsell said. She's proposing an


overall budget of $6.7 million.
This year's Community Services
budget is $10.2 million
Barsell's own job was initially
on the chopping block as part of a
money-saving reorganization
presented by Gastesi July 14. But
the commission urged Gastesi to
keep Barsell's position, which he
agreed to do.
Sheriff Rick Roth wants
$41.65 million in 2008-09, 3 per-
cent more than the $40.4 million
budget for the current year.
Roth said that to raise enough
money to keep the emergency
TraumaStar helicopter operating
for the next six months, his
department will need to spend
more than $700,000 to modify
the Department of Juvenile
Justice building so he can rent the
space to federal officials to house
detainees.
Roth says renting out the
remodeled cells could bring in up


to $1.5 million in the coming
year. The juvenile detention
building, now with 40 beds, has
laid fallow since its completion in
2004. Roth wants to add 20 more
beds to house the feds' detainees.
By law, the commission's
adopted a tentative millage can
be lowered before the fiscal year
starts Oct. 1 but not raised..
The adopted rate will be sent
to the Property Appraiser's
Office for inclusion on the Truth
in Millage, or TRIM, notice that
hits Monroe County mailboxes in
early August.
The commission set three
public hearings to finalize the
budget. The first is Sept. 10 at the
Key Largo library. The second is
Sept. 17 at the Marathon
Government Center, and the final
hearing is Sept. 24 at the Harvey
Government Center in Key West.
All are set for 5:05 p.m.

No tax collections from sewer districts


Neugent says
that could cost
state funding.
By ALYSON CREAN
acrean@keynoter.com

Monroe County's proposed
$87 million general fund budget
for 2008-09 is dangerously high,
most people familiar with it say.
But one option of keeping it
down could cost even more, a
county commissioner says.
To keep the tax rate as low as
it could Monday, the com-
mission set it at 3.234 county
staff decided not to collect
money through nine taxing dis-
tricts that have raised money for
sewer design and construction.
Commissioner George
Neugent calls that "irresponsi-
ble" and says it could leave
unincorporated Monroe County
last in line for a promised $200
million in state sewer funding
over the next four years.
But county Budget Director
Tina Boan says zeroing out
those taxes was the only way to
keep the proposed budget under


10 percent below rollback, the
millage rate necessary to raise
the same amouht-of revenue in
2008-09 as the current fiscal
year.
State tax reform requires
local governments to bring in
flat budgets. If the budget pro-
posal is 10 percent or more
above rollback, they require
unanimous approval from the
County Commission.
The sewer taxing districts
were set up in 2003.
With a millage of less than .3
each, they were designed to have
the homeowners in each region
help pay for the startup costs of
their sewers, such as design
costs. Bay Point, Big Coppitt
Key, Key Largo, Stock Island,
Cudjoe and Sugarloaf, Big Pine,
Conch Key, Long Key and Duck
Key are all separate taxing dis-
tricts for sewers.
Most of the districts are taxed
at a rate of .28 mills, or $28 per
$100,000 in property value.
"The money is to be used for
design work, primarily," said
Kerry Shelby, deputy executive
director of the Florida Keys


Aqueduct Authority. "And
there's an option to use some of
it for construction."
The Aqueduct Authority is
mandated to construct and oper-
ate sewers in unincorporated
Monroe except for Key Largo,
.which has its own sewer district.
The county is responsible for
finding the funding.
"We're looking to the county
to fund the projects," said
Shelby. "How they do that is up
to them."
Neugent said he's worried a
possible $50 million annually
for the next four years could be
at stake, since design work must
be completed before an area can-


be considered ready to start
installing sewers.
"It's based on a readiness to
proceed," Neugent said of the
state money earmarked during
the last legislative session.
"Therefore, Marathon,
Islamorada and Key Largo are
the ones in line to get it."
Boan says there's enough
money in the county's infra-
structure sales tax fund, the so-
called 304 fund, to offset what
would have been collected
through the sewer taxing district
and pay for design work. She
says that's a "fairer" means of
taxing because it spreads the
cost out. As a sales tax, even


tourists pay into the infrastruc-
ture sales tax.
County Engineer David
Koppel agreed.

ily member, the household can
earn $6,660 more annually to be
eligible.
Income amounts are calculat-
ed before taxes, Social Security,
health benefits, union dues or

Sex-crime suspect


to be extradited


By KYLE TEAL
kteal@keynotei.com


Former Key West business-
man Harry Francis Miller, who_
was arrested in South Carolina
July 16 on numerous sexual
assault charges, didn't seem like
a troubled pedophile to some
people in Key West.
"I was floored," said Miller's
former boss, Sun
Communications owner Pat
Preuss, upon hearing the news.
"Obviously, we never. expected
anything of that magnitude."
Preuss said Miller, 44, worked
for the Key West cell phone com-
pany for two years, first as an
installer and then in sales. He was
a decent, punctual worker.
"He said he met a woman and
was moving, to the Carolinas,"
Preuss said, adding that Miller
moved out of Key West at the
beginning of June.
Preuss and Key West residents
who knew Miller said he carried
around a fugitive recovery badge,
telling people he was a bail bond
agent who would apprehend
criminals.
But on July 16 he was the one
apprehended by U.S. marshals in
Beaufort, S.C., for rape, sodomy,
two counts of assault and aggra-
vated battery, two counts of lewd
acts on a minor, two counts of
sexual misconduct with a minor,
one count of contributing to the
delinquency of a minor, among
other charges.
In Virginia, Prince William
County investigators recovered
Miller's phone records after
receiving two sexual assault
complaints from victims from
that area, according to the Prince
William County Police
Department. Those records led
them to South Carolina.

S The reported
victims were
MILLER an 11-year-old
girl and a 14-
year-old girl. Miller was report-
edly baby-sitting the children.
The investigation began on July 1
of this year and also uncovered
allegations that Miller assaulted
three girls in Beaufort, along with
a 7-year-old boy, a 5-year-old
boy and a 3-year-old girl in
Florida. Those children are
reportedly now in Pennsylvania.
Key West police and the
Monroe County Sheriff's Office
say there are no current investiga-
tions involving incidents involv-
ing Miller and children in the
Keys.
But some Keys residents
weren't surprised to hear the
news of Miller's arrest.
Monroe County Senior
Administrator Lisa Druckemiller
said she was shopping around for
a better county -wireless contract
when Miller stormed into her
office and threatened her. The
county uses Sun
Communications as a Nextel
phone service provider.
Druckemiller said she never
trusted Miller, and wouldn't let
him near young family members.
"There was always something
about that guy," Druckemiller
said.
Miller, who was also a mem-
ber of the Sunset Key West
Rotary Club, sits in a Beaufort
County cell, awaiting extradition
to Prince William County.

Recreational boaters get a reprieve


By KEVIN WADLOW
Senior Staff Writer
kwadlow@keynoter.com


I Recreational boaters can con-
tinue to wash down their decks
without violating federal law:
Pending rules on water dis-
charges will not affect recreation-
al boats, says U.S. Sen. Bill
Nelson (D-Fla.).
On July 22, both houses of
- Congress unanimously passed a
bill sponsored by Nelson to
exempt recreational boaters from
new EPA policies on water dis-
charges from vessels.
If left unchanged, all 25,370
registered vessels in Monroe
County would have been required
to obtain a federal permit and been
subject to potentially large fines if
found to be violating the law.
Under some scenarios, a


boater washing down his or her
boat after a fishing trip might
have been ticketed for unlawful
release of gray water resulting
in fines of up to $32,500 per inci-
dent.
In separate action, Congress
also approved a separate measure
establishing a two-year moratori-
um on incidental discharge per-
mits for commercial fishing ves-
sels and for all other commercial
boats under 79 feet.
In 1973, the Environmental
Protection Agency issued an
exemption from clean-water reg-
ulations for incidental discharges
such as like ballast and runoff
waters from vessels.
Concerned that ballast water
from large ocean-going ships
contributed to the release of inva-
sive species in U.S. waters, envi-
ronmental groups sued the gov-


eminent.
In 2006, courts agreed the
exemption was not legally
authorized. The ruling meant that
without additional federal action,
all vessels commercial and
some 13 million recreational ves-
sels must seek a federal permit
for any discharged water.
Rules requiring, permits,
which initially were slated to be
issued at little or no cost to recre-
ational boaters, were to take
effect in September if Congress
did nothing to change the law.
Boaters worried that they
remained liable for fines, and the
cost of the permits could
increase.
Even unpowered boats like
kayaks would have been required
to hold the recreational permit.
On July 22, the Senate and
House passed the Clean Boating


Jobs cut but city advertises


By KYLE TEAL
kteal @keynoter.com


Key West is reacting to tough
economic times that most munic-
ipalities are suffering, as 13 city
employees were put on paid
administrative leave last week. In
three weeks, they'll be let go per-
manently.
Earlier this month, city offi-
cials said their positions would be
eliminated for the coming fiscal
year.
City spokeswoman Christie
Phillips noted, "The city elimi-
nated positions, not people."
Among the 34.5 positions
slashed, seven were filled with
full-time employees and six were
filled with contract employees,
according to Human Resources
Director Sandy Gilbert. Among
those contract positions were an
accounting supervisor, a code
compliance officer and. a police


crime analyst.
The cuts leave some long-time
city employees, like City
Engineer Roland Flowers, out of
the job. According to Assistant
City manager Mark Finigan, the
cuts also save the city $1.8 million
in salaries, benefits and overtime.
"There are still close to 480
authorized positions remaining in
the city," he said. "At some point
in time, they will become vacant.
For those that fall within a collec-.
tive bargaining agreement, there
is language that outlines their
opportunities for bumping to
other positions, but you have to
qualify for that."
Under city policy, "bumping"
is possible for laid-off employees
interested in taking a lower posi-
tion in their field- or something
closely related, according to
Human Resources.


Employees who are part of the
Teamsters clerical and blue-
collar workers also have an

Gas stations fill up on E-1 0

Keys give new
ethanol mix fuel
the hairy eyeball
By MARGARET MENGE
mmenge@keynoter.com


Another few months and
you might have a hard time
finding regular gasoline in the
Florida Keys.
E-10, a 10 percent ethanol,
90 percent gasoline mix is
quickly becoming the predomi-
nant fuel sold at gas stations
here. The Hess in Key Largo
was the first to convert. In
April, the Mobile stations
owned by Dion's switched to
E-10. Starting last week and
continuing this week, the nine
Chevron stations up and down
the Keys are switching over.
"A lot of people don't want
it. But they're not going to
have a choice," says Sue
Banks, CEO of Dion's, which
is headquartered in Key West.
"All the majors are going to
it now," says Greg McKenzie,
owner of McKenzie Petroleum,
which supplies Chevron and
Texaco stations in the Keys.
Federal laws passed in 2005
and 2007 require that 36 billion
gallons of biofuels a year be
mixed into the U.S. gasoline
supply by 2022. Last year, 6.5

Patience required for short sales.


Be prepared to
wait three months
or longer to close
By ANN HENSON FELTGEN
Keynoter Contributor

An increase in short sales
Keyswide is creating opportu-
nities for prospective buyers,
but the deals require patience
on both sides of the sale.
A home sold in 2005 for
$785,000 was fully renovated
and sold again in April for
$550,000. A Key West town-
house, purchased two years
ago for $495,000, recently sold


for $299,000. Both were short
sales.
In a short sale, the mortgage
holder agrees to a sale price
that is less than the loan's full
amount. The seller walks out
from under the debt without
going through foreclosure, and
the buyer gets a good deal for
property that will no doubt rise
in value.
In the last six months, Key
West reported 10 short sales,
with 21 Keyswide. Currently,
146 properties in Key West are
listed in the Multiple Listing
Service as potential short sales.
That's nearly half of the 337


listed in all of the Keys.
The real number, however,
may be elusive, said Jimmy
Lane, president of the Key
West Association of Realtors,
because short sale disclosure
was not required in the MLS
until recently.
A short sale can be a lifeline
for a property owner who can
no longer afford a home but
wants to avoid foreclosure, and
a good deal for a buyer who
has more patience than money.
To qualify for a short sale,
the seller must have stopped
making payments and have a
valid hardship. Even then,

the Keys, you shouldn't get

humdrum.
Cathy Battreall's stores

Ethanol mix gas to be sold at most Keys stations


GAS / From 13

billion gallons of ethanol were
mixed into 142 gallons of gaso-
line in the U.S. One quarter of
all corn now grown in the U.S.
is used for fuel.
When it comes to conver-
sion to ethanol, the Florida
Keys are riding the tail end of
the trend. In California and
New York, 10 percent ethanol
blends have been used for
almost four years, and in
Minnesota, ethanol blends
replaced regular gas ten years


ago. But in the Keys, some gas
stations and their customers
would rather not make the
change. The manager at the
Sunoco in Key Largo says
'they're holding out, and not
converting yet.
"A lot of customers say they
don't want it because it's going
to mess up their cars. We're
sticking to regular gas," he told
the Keynoter.
"We don't want to change it
unless we absolutely have to,"
said Shirley, a long-time
employee at Marlin Fuel and
Transport who declined to give

her last name. Marlin Fuel sup-
plies "off-brand" gasoline to
gas stations in the Upper Keys.
The reluctance to convert
can't be boiled down to simple
suspicion of all that's new and
novel. There are reasons to be
concerned about ethanol. It
mixes easier with water, and
can separate from the gasoline
if it sits too long. Then there's
fuel efficiency.
According to a study com-
missioned in 2005 by the
American Coalition for
Ethanol, E-10 gets 1.5 percent
lower mileage than regular
unleaded gasoline. "It -does
give you worse gas mileage. I
know that," says McKenzie,
adding that he thinks maybe
Congress didn't- really think
things through when it passed
laws requiring use of ethanol.
One big reason ethanol has
come slower to the Keys than
to other parts of the country is
the concerns among boaters.
"The ethanol in the fuel is not a
good thing for boats," says
Brock Leggo, the owner of
Shelter Bay Marine in
Marathon. "If you have a fiber-


glass fuel tank or a fiberglass
pick-up tube, it can cause prob-
lems."
People filling up at the
Chevron at the corner of U.S. 1
and 39th Street weren't overly



"Bottom line

save-all

everyone

thinks that

it is."'
Tom McCarthy vice
president of marketing and
petroleum at Tom Thumb
headquarters in Miami-Dade


concerned about the gas station
switching to E-10 next week.
"As far as I know it does burn


cleaner, and it taps into a
resource we haven't made good
use of," said Robert "Tut"
Brown, who was filling up a
red plastic jug for the outboard
motor on his liveaboard boat.
Ron Lamberty, vice presi-
dent at the American Coalition
for Ethanol, says.E-10 is safe
for all boat motors made since
the early '80s. Their parts, he
says, are compatible with
ethanol.
Richard from Garrison
Bight Marina in Key West says
he hasn't heard any complaints
from boaters about the new E-
10. "We just are getting into it,
and everything I have read
from Yamaha and BRP says it's
fine to use," he says. But some
gas stations here are still hold-
ing out, worried that some
boaters won't want to switch.
"We don't have ethanol
down there," says Tom
McCarthy, vice president of
marketing and petroleum at
Tom Thumb headquarters in
Miami-Dade. "Our Keys sites
we put off putting it down there.
just because there's hesitation
from boaters," he said.


Short selling: patience required


SALES / From 13

there's no guarantee that the
bank will go along with the
deal. Some lenders refuse to
consider short sales.
Dropping home values in
the Keys set the stage for the
increase in short sales.
Between July .2006 and July
2008, the average sale price for
a single-family home in Key
West dropped $94,000. In the
rest of the Keys, for that same
time period, the average drop
was $125,000, according to
statistics provided by the Key
West Association of Realtors.
Prior loose loan require-
ments allowed owners to pull
equity out of their homes and
buyers to qualify for interest-
free mortgages that ballooned
after two years. In many cases,
the mortgages soon became
higher than the home's value,
and the payments became larg-
er than many owners could
handle.
Short sale buyers must be
patient. The approval process


can take from 30 days to three
months or longer for final
approval. And there's no guar-
antee that it will go through.
Nationwide, fewer than 20 per-
cent of short sales close.
Patti Nickless, president of
the Marathon and Lower Keys
Association of Realtors and a
Realtor with Coldwell Banker
Schmitt, sold one home
through a short sale and has
four sales pending where she's
representing the buyers.
"One of them has been
extended and extended; it's
been under contract since
February and we're waiting for
one piece of paper to be
signed.."
To avoid some of the time
lag, Bascom Grooms, who
owns Bascom Grooms Real
Estate in Key West, advises
sellers to start the paperwork
before a buyer is found to save
time. Other Realtors said that
the lender would not talk to
them until they had a signed
contract.
Even if a lender approves
the sale, something else can


kill it. A second mortgage on
the property is a stopper, Lane
said. The lender who is second
in line must agree to walk
away from the investment
without repayment.
"The second mortgage hold-
er would also lose his invest-
ment if the property undergoes
foreclosure," he said.
And any unpaid fees or liens
on the property must be paid
by either the seller or struc-
tured into the sale.
And then there's the time
factor. Tommy Gomez, a
Realtor who specializes in the
Lower Keys for Coldwell
Banker Schmitt, said one short
sale took so long that by the
time it was approved, the
buyer's financial situation had
changed and stopped the sale.
He's also seen some lenders
only agreeing to the short sale
if the seller signs a promissory
note, agreeing to repay the dif-
ference between the mortgage
amount and selling
price."When they are in that
stage, the seller might as well
go into foreclosure," he said.

Rusty Anchor
puts up fight,

By DICK WAGNER
Keynoter Contributor
,As the Key West Men's
Softball League's C Division
title game between the Rusty
Anchor and the Hog's Breath
Saloon neared Friday evening at
Wickers Field, the Rusty -
Anchor's big first baseman,
Ramon Gomez, was anticipating
a tight contest.
"They won against us three
times [in the regular season] but
it's always been close," he said
as he got loose in the 6 p.m. sun.
"Defense is the main concern.
And we've got to come out
swinging."
Across the field, Hog's
Breath coach and pitcher Robert
Johnson, who had arrived with a
box of six fresh red-stitched
softballs, exuded confidence.
"We love to play and never
give up," said the firefighter,
who had a shaved head and a. -
gold necklace that gleamed
above his already sweat-dark-
ened gray T-shirt.
When all of his players had
trickled in from the parking lot,
Johnson boomed, "Are we ready
to go or what?"
Beto Rojas led off the game

Interest wanes
in Grand Prix

By RYAN McCARTHY

The future of Superboat
International racing in Marathon
appears to be in doubt.
When it met July 22, the
Marathon City Council was less


than receptive to a letter from
race organizer. and former
Marathon Mayor Randy Mearns
seeking support for next year's
event.
The city has been hosting the
Offshore Grand Prix the past six
years, but several council mem-
bers feel the races aren't the draw
they once were.

Super Cat boats race on a five-.


mile path that sees the boats go

In 2006, around 30 boats

teams registered and only 17

Opposing coaches wondered
how Kendall Hammocks assem-
bled such a powerhouse team for


Little League District 8
Tournament play in Key Largo
this summer.
Last week, Little League
International disqualified
Kendall from the league's age
11-12 state tournament, saying
team organizers apparently skirt-
ed several rules.
Kendall Hammocks started


the local tournament play with a
17-1 win over the Upper Keys
all-stars in Little League's most
popular age division. That loss
kept the Upper Keys from
advancing to the district play-
offs.
"I dofi't like what that meant
for our kids," Keys coach Tony
Romero said. "If I could pick the
best players from Key West, Big
Pine and Marathon to put togeth-


er with our Upper Keys kids,
we'd have a heck of a team,
too."
Little League International
officials said Kendall apparently
formed its roster far in advance
of the Little League season and
effectively played together as a
travel team. Tournament teams

Coral Shores looks to gain on three-win year


By KEVIN WADLOW

Coral Shores High School
football players have fewer than
two weeks to enjoy the rest of
the summer.
" Preseason practice begins
Aug. 11. Students begin classes
a week later on Aug. 18.
Spring practice in May drew


nearly 50 players to early ses-
sions. The roster dwindled to
about three dozen by the end of
workouts. But Hurricane coach-
es expect at least 40 players to
turn out for opening drills.
"We've got a big group of
seniors coming back and a lot of
underclassmen who got to play
at the varsity level last year,"


Coral Shores Athletic Director
Rich Russell says.
Returning coaches Todd
Gideon and Blake Fry installed
new offensive and defensive sys-
tems in a move to improve on
2007's three-win season.
The Hurricanes take the field
for the first time in the Kickoff
Classic preseason game, at home
Aug. 29 against Sheridan Hills.
Coral Shores opens the 10-
game regular football season
with two games on the road, at
Ransom Everglades on Sept.. 5
and at Key West on Sept. 12. The
regular-season home opener will


be Sept. 19 against Westminster
Christian.
Other home. games include
Archbishop Curley, Sept. 26;
LaSalle, Oct. 17; Hollywood
Christian, Oct. 24; and St. John
Neumann, Oct. 30.
The regular season ends with
a Nov. 14 game at Marathon
High School.

Other sports
Volleyball and swimming are
allowed to begin preseason
workouts Aug. 11,, but no start
schedules have been announced


by Coral Shores coaches.
Andy Thiery returns to coach
the volleyball Canes. A presea-
son tournament is scheduled at
home Aug. 29. Other Keys vol-
leyball programs traditionally
take part but a tournament lineup
has not been released.
The regular season begins
Sept. 5 at Ransom, with a Sept.
11 match against Carrollton
being the regular-season home
opener.
Cross-country practice under
returning coach Mary Jo Fry
begins Aug. 18.

"For the last few years, the

interest in getting the crowds that
used to be here," he said.
This year, the TDC invested
$75,000 in the boat races. And
Fire Chief Dale Beaver told the
council that the city invested
roughly $20,000 worth of in-kind
emergency services.
"To spend that kind of money
with little result, somebody
needs to be looking at other types
of venues that will bring more
people to Marathon," Vasil said.
Meams said two factors have
contributed to shrinking interest
in the boat races: Competition
between Superboat International
and the rival league Offshore
Super Series, as well as the city
not being the desirable location it


once was.
"I'm hearing this from many
other venues that these races
need to get their [act] together. If
they did, towns would be dying
for them to come back," Meams
said. "I.will say there has been
some complaints that Marathon
is a city in distress, and I agree.
This town is -not where it was
five or 10 years ago. It's not an
attractive place to come and
there's not a lot to do."
Means said two of the series'
12 races this season, in the
Broward area and in Dania
Beach, have been cancelled due
to a struggling economy and lack
of participants.

for the Rusty Anchor with a,
triple. He then scored on an
infield hit, dashing past umpire
Al DiFabio and plowing into the
padded backstop.
The impeccably attired Di
Fabio, who delivered his strike
calls in a crisp fashion, reached
for a long-handled broom and
swept the plate.
The Hog's Breath came back
in its half of the first inning to tie.
the score, 2-2, and tied it again at
6-6 in the third on a single by
Bobby Guieb.
Meanwhile, the small conces-
sion stand was doing a brisk
business in French fries, and
their aroma filled the air. A
plaque affixed to the stand fead:
"Wes Wagner, a loyal Toledo,
Ohio, winter fan. Died Aug. 5,
1996."
Trailing 8-6, the Rusty
Anchor, its players chattering in
Spanish, regained the lead in the
fifth, despite Johnson's dazzling
snag of a hot bouncer that led to
,a double play. Two of the four
runs scored when a line drive


got by center fielder Trey Key
and rolled out near Kennedy
Drive.
After the third out, Johnson
consoled Key, who headed off
for a smoke. The Hog's Breath
then scored six runs to lead, 14-
10, only to have the Rusty
Anchor come back with four in
the sixth to tie the game again.
The infield was in shadows
and the game was still tied when
the Hog's Breath came to bat in
the bottom of the seventh. "We
only need one," Johnson
boomed.
With one out, 23-year-old
Scott Chilko, fortified by a few
swigs of beer, singled. Augie
Barcenas then lined a hit to cen-
ter and when the center fielder
bobbled the ball, Chilko tore
around third and dived into
home with the run that won the
game, 15-14.
"Feels awesome," Chilko
said after a brief celebration.
Johnson, his shirt coated in
rust-colored dirt, was asked
where the victory party was
going to be held. He smiled and
quietly said, "Me, I'm going
home."

ninth annual Ladies, Let's
Go Fishing! seminar, slated

and Wildlife Conservation
Commission to teach practi-
cal skills and provide a fun
hands-on learning experi-
ence.

19 with a welcome party for
participants and guests. The
next day's activities begin at
7:20 a.m. with class-style
sessions at beginner, inter-
mediate and advanced levels.
Whatever the skill level,
the seminar also focuses on
the thrill level. Registrants

TV networks find


popularity in Keys


Could there be such a thing as
over saturation? Could the rest of
the woild finally say enough
already? Could fishermen with
money to spend get to the point
where they say the Florida Keys
have been done to death? I say
no.
It was Tim Klein, an
- Islamorada flats guide who has
calls the Lorelei Cabana Bar in'
Islamorada his home, who once
told me that fishing TV shows
recorded in the Keys were the
-beginning of the end for flats
guides like him.
He and others say TV shows
that glamorize and romanticize
the fishing bring hordes of silver
spooners to the Keys to become
guides and have made it difficult
for some full-timers who have
-put their heart and soul into guid-
ing.
I tend to take another point of
view the more the world sees
the fishing paradise we have, the
better the business for us all.


* -. ,.


TThere is a
C balance.
Ye s ,
fishing isn't
what it used
to be in the
1960s, '70s
and '80s,
but there
are still
ample areas
where
guides can
go out in
Cal Sutphin the middle
of tourist
season and find redfish, snook,
bonefish, tarpon, permit, grouper,
sharks, etc., and in some areas,
never see another skiff.
Television hasn't killed fish-
ing. In fact, it often enhances it.
No one down here knows better
than Jose Wejebe of Summerland

Starting in early 2009, the

Keys Fishing


Watch out for those lobster


divers they're everywhere


But mini-season
also eases up
offshore angling
Lobster madness is on.
Here we are, smack in the
middle of the craziest time of
the year in the Keys, with thou-
sands of people with bugs on the
brain. The search for the elusive
lobster is on in such a way that
you can actually see fear in their
little beady eyes. It's entertain-
ing to watch and a blast to do.
There's nothing like catching
your own dinner, either by rod
and reel or with net and tickle
stick.
If you're going diving for
lobster, it is a good idea to take
along some bait such as a box of
squid because you are more than
likely to run across some nice
fish, particularly grouper in the
holes, when you're hunting
crawfish. Having a whole squid
to present in front of a hungry
grouper has always worked for
me. Capturing him on a hook is
also much more beneficial for
his long-term health if the need
to release presents itself.
Now is a good time to go
fishing offshore because you are
not apt to run into too many lob-

out, and so
are wahoo and tunas. The odds
of having too much company
are low. The only problem is
getting to the reef line without
feeling you are driving through
a pinball machine.
One of the problems with
navigating with all of the
other ,boaters out there is that
some of them have developed
bug brains they are looking
for lobster and pretty much
worried about nothing else.
The best thing to do is give
wide berth to dive boats, espe-.
cially those trolling divers in
search of lobster.
This usually works but
some boat operators don't
have a problem with leaving a
diver that has dropped off the

towline well aft of the boat.
This can cause a problem
since it' difficult to see a diver
in the water, especially with
any wave action. You may
think you are well clear of
them and then find there is a
diver right in front of you.
- This is more so a possibili-
ty in the shallower waters of
the bay and around the bridge
channels than on the ocean-
side.
Speaking of the bridge
channels, this is one of the
most congested areas you will
find, particularly around the
period of slack tide. There are
times you can't see a boat in
the area and still find a diver
in the channel. The best way
to handle this without ruining
either yours or the diver's day
is to slow down, take a little
more time and make sure you
can get through without an
incident. This will help keep
everyone's day a good one.

Water Cay Celebrity Bonefish
Classic Redbone @ Large in
Grand Bahama, which targets
bonefish.
Wejebe, host of ESPN2's
"Spanish Fly," has a long history
with the RedBone tournaments.
I have been a supporter of
[Redbone founder] Gary Ellis
and what he is doing for [the
Cystic Fibrosis Foundation] since
as long as the tournaments have
been around," he says. They
started in 1988.
"Actually, I got my first
chance on TV in a RedBone
event back in the late '80s. A gen-
tleman named Jerry McKinnis.
was at the time filming a show
called 'Mariner's Tournament
Trail' and I happened to be one of
the guides with a camera on
board," Wejebe says. "I had an
ex-NFL player, Kim Bokamper,
E on board and I see this school of
tarpon that I'm trying to stop the
skiff from running into. I have


I


mud caked on the end of my
push-pole and go to flip the pole
around and drop it. It hit Kim
right in the head and mud is all
over him. Not a good thing."
Wejebe says, "Eventually,
Jerry McKinnis and I struck a
relationship and I started the
'Spanish Fly.'. Now things have
gone full circle, as we have the
Saltwater Series which will air all
RedBone-sanctioned events."
Back to the point of is there
too much saturation of saltwater
programming based in the Keys.
Wejebe has the Midas touch of
knowing what the public wants to
see on his "Spanish Fly" and the
popular "Madfin Shark Series,"
in its third year on ESPN
Outdoors.
Captains Tom Rowland and
Rich Tudor have the Keys-based
"Saltwater Experience" on
Versus and rumor has it, another
one in the works. Other shows
make frequent yearly visits to the

Keys Fishing


Saltwater Fishing," Norm Isaacs'
"Big Game Fishing the World"
and Mark Sosin's "Saltwater
Journal," among others.
One thing in common with
every show is they are all at the
top of the heap when it comes to
popularity. Any network ques-
tioned will admit to wanting pro-
gramming that hails from the
Keys because of the viewers
drawn to those shows.
"What I've found is that the
saltwater lifestyle is very appeal-
ing to viewers across the nation,"
Wejebe says. "It's reminiscent of
a Jimmy Buffett/Corona-type
lifestyle and so with that in mind,
it was a natural fit to go with the
RedBone and that series of tour-
naments. That is one of the tour-
nament series that embraces that
lifestyle. The demand is certainly
there."
Even with all of that program-
ming giving us all of that expo-
sure, I can still go out to my
favorite flats and catch a bonefish
without seeing another skiff in
sight. Ain't life grand?

No matter what, have fun


NAVARRO / From 23

It's going to be crowded;
accept it and deal with it
properly.
Night fishing is also a
great bet, as the moon is in a
favorable phase for the fish
to be biting. The reef is your
best bet for yellowtail, mut-
tons and numerous grouper.
Mangrove snapper have also
been plentiful, so much so
that keeping track of your
limit has been the only chal-
lenge. Live baits, such as
pinfish and shrimp, are best.
But squid, ballyhoo, glass
minnows and silversides are
also great. Take plenty of
good chum for best results.
This is your last week of
open waters for night fishing,
as the lobster traps hit the
-aqua Aug. 6 for eight months.
The rock humps along Hawk


Channel are also a good bet
for night fishing. Drifting
both the channel and the reef
patches has been exceptional
as of late. Live baits or rigged
squid have been good.
It has produced big
grouper, very nice yellowtail
and some huge mangrove
snapper. If you hit a spot with
several bites in a small area,
you may want to anchor and
give it some time to see if
you have found a good
school.
The flats are-another good
bet for anglers during this
frenzy of divers. They can
produce some very good fish-
ing as well as some exciting
entertainment with all of the
novice boaters around (they
couldn't understand why you
were pushing your boat with
a pole until they hit bottom).
It will also give you some
protection.


There have been plenty of
bonefish early and permit
throughout the day. And with
all the traffic around the
bridge -channels, tarpon
should be moving to the flats
for peace and quiet, and to
feed. For fun fishing, the flats
are teaming with all sizes of
barracuda and quite a few
sharks right now, so there
should be plenty to cast to.
If you're diving, have fun.
Good luck and be safe. If
you're fishing, have fun.
Good luck and be safe. If you
have to go to the grocery
store in the afternoon and
find yourself near the butter
section, good luck.

Marathon and captains the
