fire chief



resigns


Burnett: Beaver
under pressure
since recent blaze
By RYAN McCARTHY
. mccarthy@keynoter.com

Marathon Fire Chief Dale
Beaver resigned Tuesday,
apparently due to diminished
confidence in his ability to
oversee the city's fire and res-
cue services since a June fire
destroyed a popular musi-
cian's home.
"There was a lot of negativ-
ity in the community and the
elected officials have been
hearing that, as well," City
Manager Clyde Burnett said.
"The last five years have
been the most challenging of
my career. Because of family


and personnel issues, it is nec-
essary to make this decision,"
Beaver wrote in his resigna-
tion. letter, which was dated
Aug. 5.
Burnett said Beaver didn't
mention to him the June 4 fire
that destroyed the Calle
Ensenada home of entertainer
Robert "Rocketman" Hudson.
But Burnett said criticism in
the wake of the blaze likely
played a role in Beaver's deci-
sion to resign.
But Burnett said Beaver's
job with the city was not in
jeopardy.
"As the manager, I tried to
be supportive of him. There
wasn't any pressure from me,"
he said.

Some arrests
made, numbers
are still raw
By KEVIN WADLOW
Senior Staff Writer
kwadlow@keynoter.com

As the regular lobster season
opens today, law-enforcement
officers were still compiling cita-
tions from last week's two-day
lobster mini-season.
The consensus among officers
held that while busy, mini-season
caused fewer problems than
usual.
"In Islamorada, [water patrol]
deputies reported fewer boats on
the water," said Becky Herrin,
information officer for the
Monroe County Sheriff's Office.
"They said most people they
stopped were in compliance with
the law and had all their required
safety equipment."
Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission offi-
cers were still sending reports to


the agency's headquarters office
Monday. A report was expected
to be issued at midweek.
The FWC made the only mini-
season case that resulted in sus-
pects being booked at the Monroe
County Detention Center.
Officers charged four suspects
- Yordanis Corzo Arostegui, 30;
Yusdel Acuna Carmenates, 23;
-Erin Cepero, 18; and Carlos
Perez 21 with multiple conser-
vation counts Thursday after the
suspects were found in the Card
Sound Lobster Sanctuary.
Charges include lobstering in
the protected area, spearfishing in
the Upper Keys and possession of
speared lobster.
Sheriff's Office Deputy
Nelson Sanchez checked one
boat with six people near
Islamorada on Thursday and
found 24- legal-size lobster
aboard. But a witness told
Sanchez that a bag was thrown
off the boat before the officer
pulled alongside.
A search revealed a catch bag


on the ocean bottom with another
20 lobster. All were released
alive. Islamorada residents John
Meyers, 64, and Salvatore
Desposito, 61, were cited for
exceeding the bag limit.
Deputies on water patrol
checked 168 boats during the two
days. They also found 25 boats
inside Islamorada's no-diving
area during mini-season and told
them to move.
On the road, after a traffic
stop, deputies charged two men
with possession of undersized
lobster and lobstering without a
license. They had seven lobster,
only two of which were legal
size.
And as previously reported,
two men, both out-of-county res-
idents, died after, diving in
Florida Keys waters during mini-
season July 30 and 31. At press
time, the Monroe County
Medical Examiner's Office had
not released causes of death.
Statewide, five people are
believed to have died as a result
of mini-season diving.


'The committees are more focused'


CITIZENS / From 1

tence as staff takes over their
remaining duties.
Not so fast, some volunteers
say.
"If members of the community
are willing to volunteer their time
on behalf of civic causes, their
interest should be supported," said
Karen Strobel, vice chairwoman
of the Land Acquisition Advisory
Committee. "I don't think staff
has the time to do everything that
committee members do."
"I think most of the commit-
tees still have great value."
Workforce Affordable Housing
Committee Chairwoman Deb
Gillis said. "The committees are
more focused on one idea, and
hopefully save staff time."
The economy has put the hous-
ing committee "in kind of a lull
right now," Gillis said, noting the
group already has reduced the fre-
quency of its meetings.
"We're willing to help cut
costs but we still have issues to
look at," she said. "If something
should.pop up, having volunteer
committees is the cheapest way to
crpt wnrk dnnp "


Support for the advisory com-
mittees includes having village
staff attend evening board meet-
ings, in addition to preparing
agendas, background material and
minutes for each committee.
Fields said the Community
Development Block Grant Task
Force, charged with seeking grant
money to help low-income resi-
dents with issues like sewer fees,
has determined Islamorada lacks
enough low-income residents to
qualify for grants.
The Workforce Affordable
Housing Citizens Advisory
Committee has performed valu-
able work, Fields wrote, but "may
have exhausted possible initia-
tives."
Duties handled by the Land
Acquisition Advisory Committee
and the Landscape Advisory
Committee could be performed by
staff, Fields noted.
Other groups, such as the Near
Shore Water Regulation
Committee and the Parks and
Recreation Committee, could
meet less frequently, Fields wrote.
Not affected would be the
Local Planning Agency and the
Historic Preservation
fln miqcinn uxhir-h h'n,,v rtri-


sion-making authority spelled out
in the Islamorada code.
Fields also wrote that a pro-
posed committee on environmen-
tal sustainability "is not required
at this time."
In the workshop's other item,
Village Council members will
review the municipality's draft
plan for environmental sustain-
ability.
The 11 -page sustainability plan
outlines projects like converting
street lighting and Founders Park
lighting to solar power. One idea
suggested installing solar pan-
els to heat the Founders Park pool
- was dropped as being too
expensive and impractical. Plans
for an energy-efficient pool heat-
ing system are in this year's budg-
et.
Following the workshop is the
Village Council's regular meeting,
starting at 5:30 p.m.
Agenda items include a pro-
posed 23-percent hike in annual
residential garbage and recycling
charges.
The increase from this
year's $295 to $362 would
cover "the extraordinary rise in
fuel costs" and expanded recy-

Alleged gunman
quickly arrested

Key West Police arrested
an 18-year-old for armed
robbery Tuesday afternoon
after he allegedly pulled a
loaded gun on a man and
demanded his wallet.
Jesse Boone of Arcadia
allegedly approached the
victim downtown near the
Customs House around 3
p.m., took out his gun and
told the victim to give him
his wallet. The man yelled
for help, at which point
Boone started running away
on foot.
The victim called 911 and
started chasing Boone,
whom he tackled in the rear
of the property, police
spokeswoman Christie
Phillips said. Police were
nearby when the call came
in, and quickly arrested
Boone. Phillips said his 25-
caliber automatic pistol was
loaded.

Mayor calls chief's resignation a 'total surprise'


BEAVER / From 1

Beaver couldn't be reached
for comment at press time.
But former volunteer fire
chief Randy Mearns said
Beaver's resignation isn't a
surprise to him.
"I'm not over there a lot,
but I'd heard rumblings that
since the fire on Sombrero, he
thought his job was on the
edge," Mearns said of the
Rocketman fire.
Following that blaze,
Mearns criticized the depart-
ment for shunning volunteers
in recent years. He gave his
blistering comments at a June
workshop Burnett called to
discuss the state of the fire


department in
the wake of
the fire.

ty say the

pared when it
BEAVER came to hav-
ing enough
water to suppress the flames at

Beaver said then that prob-
lems reacting to fires are
based on a lack of resources
and manpower. He also said
the house could not have been
saved because the fire was
fueled by a flammable liquid
and spread quickly from a
plastic-like deck into the attic,


Suspect 'combative'

when state law-enforcement
officers stopped her car July
18 on County Road on Big
Pine Key.
"While attempting to run
down her husband and strike
him with her vehicle," a
Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission
statement says, "she redirect-
ed her-vehicle and attempted
to hit [FWC Officer Jonathan]
Jacox, who was standing near
his patrol vehicle."
Ard then reportedly "struck
the patrol vehicle and caused
extensive damage." Jacox was
not injured.
Officers said even after the
crash, Ard was "combative"
and continued to struggle with
them.
Charges from the County
Road incident include felony
assault with intent to do harm,
driving under the influence,
DUI involving property dam-
age, and refusal to sign a cita-
tion.
Ard had been prohibited
from driving after the June 1
arrest when Monroe County
Sheriff's Office deputies
received a report of an intoxi-
cated driver leaving the Brass
Monkey Lounge in Marathon.
Ard reportedly stopped
when pulled over by a deputy,
then floored it when he got out
of his car and raced across the

halted but Ard fled into nearby
woods, according to deputies.
A police dog tracked her
down.
She was charged June 1
with second-offense DUI in
addition to reckless driving,
felony assault on a law officer
and fleeing arrest.
After Ard didn't appear at
her July 22 arraignment for
the July 18 offenses, a warrant
was issued for her arrest. She
was taken into custody
Thursday under a $15,000
bond.


above a heavy tile ceiling.
In a report delivered to the
City Council in June, Beaver
outlined a staffing level that
would increase from 23 today
to 72, plus adding a deputy
fire chief, a full-time training
officer and other administra-
tive and support personnel.
He also asked for accom-
modations for out-of-county
fire fighters. Only two fire-
fighters on staff live within the
city limits, his report noted.
Another 14 commute in from
Miami-Dade County and one
from Broward County.
But several residents at the
post-Hudson workshop said it


simply took too long for fire-
fighters to find an alternative
water source for the blaze
when the initial 1,750 gallons
of available water to fight it
was gone.
"I don't think that [Beaver]
was doing the best job that he
could have, that's my opin-
ion," Mearns said.
Mayor Pete Worthington
said he feels Beaver was doing
the best he could with limited
resources.
"It was a total surprise to
me that it happened. I know
he's been under a lot of pres-
sure from the Rocketman
fire," Worthington said. "It's


unfortunate he's not going to
be employed with us and he's
done a great job the five years
he's been with the city."
Burnett said he intended to
announce the resignation at
Tuesday night's City Council
budget workshop. He said he
will place Capt. Lisa Watson
in charge of administration
and Capt. Eric Dunsford in
charge of operations until fur-
ther notice.
Beaver, who retired from a
mainland fire department prior
to working in Marathon, was
earning roughly $90,000 as
fire chief.

Martinson was taken to

But Herrin said two nurses

"When you go through that
kind of process, you think the
worst at first," she said. "But the
guys from law enforcement
could not have made us feel any
more secure."
According to a report from


Deputy Brian Luth, Pipher hand-
ed him a letter addressed to
Beaver at 8:30 p.m. Friday.
"The letter indicates that
Pipher is making the decision to
allow all staff and clients to re-
enter the premises against the
advice of the Marathon Fire
Department and against the
advice of the Key West Police
Department Hazardous

reads.
Pipher said she was in con-
stant contact with emergency
workers and made the decision
to re-enter the buildings based
on information she received
from them. She reiterated it was
Beaver's decision to release
workers from the grounds.
"Once he collected informa-

Going green gets easier in Middle Keys


City providing

By RYAN McCARTHY
rmccarthy@kcynoter.com

The city of Marathon has
launched a new area on its Web
site aimed at helping citizens
reduce energy consumption and
keeping them abreast of its new
Green Initiative.
It's the latest step the city has
taken toward going green at the
request of the Green Team, an
informal advisory panel on envi-
ronmental issues. The Green
Team presented the City Council
with a comprehensive report on
its energy consumption at an
April 29 meeting.

Keynoter Staff


Florida Keys Green Living &
Energy Education (GLEE) is
planning a summit on biodiesel
fuel use in the Florida Keys
Thursday that's to coincide with
its regular quarterly meeting.
The all-day summit will be
held at Florida Keys Community
College on Stock Island.
"We want to see if we have
the capacity and capability to
make biodiesel here in the
Keys," GLEE President Alison
Higgins says. "Instead of paying
to have waste oil hauled to the
mainland for disposal, we could
be using it as biofuel right here
in the Keys."
The session will include a
"Biodiesel 101" presentation on
production methods. Biodiesel is


people can use to find ways to
save energy. We're going to con-
tinue to update it so people can
know what the team is doing,"
Green Team Chairman Michael
Welber said. The site offers links
to various state, federal and local
agencies.
There is a link to the Florida
Keys Electric Cooperative, which
offers energy audits to businesses
and homeowners at no cost.
According to the co-op's Web
site, the utility provides a written
report containing suggestions for
using electricity wisely and low-
ering monthly bills.
Welber said the utility has
been flooded with audit requests
since a recent spike in energy
costs.
"They did one at my house and
it was really helpful. They found
some leaks in our ductwork and
heat coming through the win-
dows," Welber said.
There is also a link to a carpool
service Web site partly sponsored
by the Green Living & Energy


a carbon-free fuel alternative
that can be made from renew-
able resources like recycled
cooking oil and fish waste. -
Participants will include
elected officials and staff repre-
senting all Keys municipalities,
utilities and other entities with
an investment in auto fleets that
use fossil fuel.
Guest speakers from
Biodiesel Industries, Universal
Studios (where only biodiesel
fuel is used) and Lee County
(where construction of a county-
operated biodiesel conversion
plant is in the works) will pres-
ent biodiesel success stories.
The afternoon biodiesel ses-
sion of the meeting, from I to 4
p.m., is free and open to the pub-
lic. Businesses or individuals
who have a number of diesel
vehicles or vessels are encour-
aged to come.

making the same drive," Welber
said.
Welber said employees have
begun turning thermostats at the
City Hall trailers up at night and
are reusing white printer paper.
Parks and Recreation Manager
Jimmy Schmidt also told Welber


his department will use recycled
toilet paper and non-foxic clean-
ers.
"The overall goal is to save
energy and reduce their carbon
footprint. We want them to invest
the money for the long-term, so in
future years when energy prices
continue to go up, they won't be
paying that much," Welber said.
On April 29, the council
approved a resolution urging resi-
dents to take various steps to


reduce their personal energy con-
sumption. Among the recommen-
dations listed on the new Web
site: Using compact fluorescent
light bulbs, taking cloth bags to
the supermarket, planting a tree in
your yard and recycling.
The council embraced the last
recommendation by allocating
$11,550 from its contingency
fund to purchase recycling bins.
They are available at City Hall
between 98th and 99th streets.

Opinion


Relying on sales taxes

is just bad economics

How about this for an election year bonanza:
A promise to cut property taxes by $8 billion a year.
A hope that reducing property taxes will jump start
Florida's moribund real estate industry.
+ A prayer that another $7 billion shortfall in school fund-
ing can somehow be offset by the Florida Legislature.
If that sounds too good to be true, join the ranks of skeptics
reacting to Gov. Charlie Crist's latest pronouncements back-
ing Amendment 5 on the November ballot.
Most political watchers recognize the tax swap idea -
reduce property taxes and raise state sales taxes instead -
originated with House Speaker Marco Rubio.
During this year's 90-day legislative session, the governor
was decidedly cooler to the plan. Of course, Crist was battling
the telegenic Rubio for TV time during a seesaw legislative
battle and wasn't yet running to be John McCain's VP.
Amendment 5 promises to cut property taxes statewide by
roughly 25 percent. In exchange, voters would have to accept
a penny increase in the state's 6-cent sales tax.
That sales tax is already higher in counties that have insti-
tuted local-option sales taxes. In Monroe, our bite of the sales
tax apple is already at 7.5 cents. Adding another penny would
push our sales taxes to 8.5 cents per dollar.
With money already pledged to repay revenue bonds, that
opens up a whole new quagmire that tax swap boosters don't
even want to discuss.
The governor, interviewed in Tallahassee Tuesday, told
reporters the impact of cutting state property taxes could be
just what Florida needs: "I think it could be a significant stim-
ulant for Florida's economy."
This, of course, misses the larger national economic forces
driving real estate. With banks failing from subprime loans,
defaults climbing and unemployment levels at'unprecedented
levels, Florida's real estate market can't cure itself. -
And deciding that education funding can be tied to the ups
and downs of sales tax collections would put classrooms on a
financial roller coaster that's sickening to even contemplate.
It's easy to see how the governor, hoping to lure a possible
VP nomination, could change his lukewarm stand this spring
to gung-ho backing for a tax swap now.
After all, imagine the possible campaign slogans for a
Sunshine State guv who promises a 25 percent tax rollback ...
and who wouldn't have to stick around to pay the bills when
they come due.

Keeping up with the kids is tough


EDITOR:
To all those weekend warriors out there: A
torn anterior cruciate ligament of the knee can
affect the way you do your job and it can affect
your performance in life. Reading the Miami
Herald this Sunday about Ronnie Brown, run-
ning back for the Miami Dolphins, brought it all
back to me.
Ronnie Brown was satisfied with his ACL -
repair from a physical standpoint but did not
know how he would react mentally to facing the
force of an opposing defense. Let's all hope he
pulls it off. The article reminded me of my own
personal experience with an ACL repair. I could
really identify with his concerns since my surgery
was more than a year ago.
My answer was Dr. Paul Ellison.
My wife was out of town at a professional
meeting when I engaged in a volleyball game with
the neighborhood kids. I felt the first injury to my
knee then, but finished it off several days later in a
basketball game with the same group of kids.
My wife called Dr. Ellison and even with his
busy schedule, his efficient office team got me in
the same day and an MRI was ordered. He didn't
pull any punches and told me I had a pretty bad


injury, which apparently was a little more signifi-
cant when we got to surgery.
Dr. Ellison had prepared me by being so thor-
ough in his explanation of what to expect. He
showed me on a model in his office and I actual-
ly understood exactly what the procedure
entailed. When I woke up from surgery, the
future was just getting better.
I went home and made arrangements to see
my physical therapist, Jane Hlis. My wife is a PT
but she knew Jane would cut me no slack and I
would have to listen to her. She was a tyrant but
really knew her stuff. She taught me that the key
to getting better was not only what to do but what
not to do. Timing was everything.
Here I am more than a year later, identifying
with a professional athlete and his concerns. I
won't be facing a defensive tackle but I do feel
lucky. I feel great and I need to take the time to
express my appreciation.
Moral of the story: If you are over 45 and
think you can play volleyball and basketball,
think again. If you do, remember the name Dr.
Paul Ellison.

Chamber takes wrong stance on U.S. 1


EDITOR:
It is extremely disappointing to see the board
of Key Largo Chamber of Commerce siding
with the state Department of Transportation on
the issue of the "fifth lane" for U.S. 1, against
the safety of its own customers who live here in
the Keys.
DOT's apparent goal is to make our one-
street through the Keys into a high-speed
expressway at the expense of safety for every-
one who might use the road, shoulder or bike
path. We know from experience that DOT has
never seen a highway that can't be "improved"
by adding more pavement.
DOT officials have lost all credibility with
anyone who has been paying attention. In 2003,
DOT told the community unequivocally that it
would not pave a fifth lane through Key Largo,
and said the Miller Report on hurricane evacua-
tion is only a recommendation. Now they are
back with their fifth-lane plan, citing the Miller
Report as justification.
In fact, the Miller Report shows building
more lanes south of Florida City will have no
beneficial impact on our ability to evacuate in
the event of a hurricane because there are only a
few lanes in Florida City. Plus, no consideration
is given to gridlock that would exist north of
Florida City on Florida's Turnpike and other
northbound roads as Miami-Dade County resi-
dents try to flee an advancing storm.
DOT's assumption about the benefit of an
additional lane for evacuation in the Keys is
based on no traffic from Miami-Dade County
entering the evacuation. In reality, Keys evac-
uees would be stuck in the Keys, or without
protection in traffic jams on U.S. I and Card
Sound Road, as traffic ground to a halt behind
gridlock on the turnpike.
It is time for all of us to realize that simplis-


tic solutions like the proposed fifth lane, which
would divert big public expenditures into the
pockets of the road-building industry, create big
safety problems for those of us who live here.
We already see frequent irresponsible passing
on the shoulders (the third and fourth lanes) of
the recently four-laned bottom half of U.S. I
between Florida City and Key Largo by drivers
driving 80 mph. Why should we expect any-
thing different from impatient drivers between
mile markers 92 and 106?
A fifth lane on Key Largo would imperil
anyone using the bike path, and take valuable
space away from every business on the ocean
side of U.S. 1.

And the survey says ... what?


EDITOR:
After reading attorney David Paul
Horan's letter to the editor in a local
newspaper, I find myself in a
quandary. I happen to read all the
Key West newspapers and find
Horan's comments insubstantial.
In the past two weeks, Horan's
past and present activities have been
well publicized in most of the Key
West newspapers Safe Harbor,
Department of community Affairs
end run, etc. Even Jerry Coleman, on
his radio show, spoke of Horan's
unselfish efforts.
What more could he want? An air-
port named after him? How about
Horan's Hickory House? I'm serious.
Horan has done so much for Monroe
County and to us citizens, we can't
wait to give him what he deserves.
Concerning his infamous survey
about Stock Island development, why


doesn't Horan release this "survey of
400 registered voters" to the public
and allow the citizens to extract the
information for themselves? Are
these holy tablets that only he and
his clergy can translate for us peons?
Please, boss, what does it say?
Give us a hint. Who are these
people that he surveyed? What ques-
tions were asked? Where do they
live? What's the real scoop on the
questions asking the approval rating
of county commissioners Dixie
Spehar and Sonny McCoy? Please,
what does it say? How can we take
Horan seriously if he hides the
research?
.Show us the beef and maybe we
will drink the Kool-Aid. And don't
forget the old saying you get what
you pay for. So put up or shut up.

Vote no on marriage amendment


EDITOR:
Florida law already prohibits mar-
riage for same-sex couples and
already prohibits recognition of mar-
riages of same-sex couples that were
performed in other states.
Proposed Amendment 2, the so-
called marriage amendment, would
extend beyond the existing ban on
gay marriage and could very well
threaten basic fundamental rights of
unmarried heterosexual domestic
partner couples.
Among the rights that might be
threatened are shared health-care
plans offered by government agen-
cies, universities or private business-
es; and the right to visit a domestic
partner who may be hospitalized for
any reason.
This proposed amendment is far
reaching, intrusive, discriminatory
and needless because it puts govern-
ment where it does not belong in
the role of regulating the personal
relationship of two consenting adults.
It would also change Florida's
Constitution an action that should
be reserved only for improving gov-
ernmental policies.
Although the language of the pro-
posed amendment has the illusion of
being straightforward, it is not. The
ballot initiative's language says, "In
as much as marriage is the legal
union of only one man and one
woman as husband and wife, no other
legal union that is treated as marriage
or the substantial equivalent thereof
shall be valid or recognized" and is
misleading.
The phrase "substantial equivalent
thereof' opens the door not only to
ban equal marriage rights, but also
would permanently block civil unions


and threaten domestic partnership
benefits and protections that are
already in place. This would impact
couples regardless of their sexual ori-
entation.
The proposed amendment could
have a far-reaching and negative
impact on Florida's aging population.
Due to the structure of current laws
regarding Social Security benefits,
many senior citizens (some of whom
are widowed and choose not to
remarry) set up their households
together as opposed to getting mar-
ried so they will not lose their Social
Security benefits or other pensions.
The proposed amendment could
affect Florida senior citizens regard-
less.of their sexual orientation.
Concerned citizens of the Florida
Keys, vote no on proposed
Amendment 2.

State marine officers check for legal lobster during last weekend's mini-season. The
letter writer says he knows the spot he usually goes to was poached of illegal-size
lobster.

An obvious local person ruins mini-season


EDITOR:
The lobster dive: The first for a just-
became 11-year-old little girl and the last
for an 80-year-old man who first dove for
lobster in the Keys in 1960, when you
could go out and dive all day and.not see
another boat with divers.
Here is our dive trip from July 30, the
first day of mini-season:
We left the dock at 6:30; it was half day-
light. We couldn't go earlier because there
are no running lights on the boat. We head-
ed to spot No. 1. The sun was up by the
time we cleared Sisters Creek. I could see
two boats in the direction of spot No. 1.
Hoping they were too far out for our spot,
we went over that way; they were on it for
sure. Since we weren't out there before day-
light, I wasn't surprised to find the spot
taken.
We headed for spot No. 2. Just as we got
to it, a friend came up and said he had been
out there since daylight and no one had
been even close to our No. 2 spot.
There had been about 15 to 18 lobster
there for the past three or four weeks. If no


one dove it this morning, that means out of
the lobster that were there, I should find
two or three legal lobster. It is only 10 feet
deep there; I could have free dove it, but
that wears me out too fast, so I started gear-
ing up to use an air hose from a tank in the
boat.
I got on my fins, weight belt, mask and
gloves, put the air hose around my neck,
picked up my net and tickle stick with
attached lobster gauge, and went in. As I
got closer to the spot, I didn't see any feel-
ers. There was a good reason for that -
there were none.
There was no evidence that there ever
had been any lobster there. No feelers, no
bodies, no tiny lobster, either. Someone had
taken every one; only two or three were big
enough, so they took 12 to 15 short lobsters.
This isn't the first time that has hap-
pened to me. I have lived here for 35 years.
A marine patrolman once told me that the
locals get their lobster in July. I thought he
was joking. Maybe he wasn't.

Iguanas are fouling our pools


EDITOR:
Think again about how cute some folks
think iguanas are.
The Wall Sweet Journal reported July 30
that a chlorine-resistant parasite has been
discovered in swimming pools.
Cryptosporidium, or Crypto, is found in
human and animal feces and is easily trans-
mitted through water. When ingested, cryp-
to can cause an illnes-s of up to two weeks,
with symptoms that include long bouts of
diarrhea, abdominal cramps, nausea, vomit-
ing, headaches and low-grade fever. The
crypto parasite has a thick outer shell, so it


can survive for more than 10 days in a pool
at standard chlorine levels.
Many Keys homeowners with a pool and
iguanas around know what a horrendous
mess the creatures leave behind when they
relieve themselves in the pool. It is not only
an ugly mess to try to clean up, but now we
know you'd better not let any children any-
where near the pool. The only known way
to get rid of the parasite is to filter the water
with ultraviolet black light systems, an
expensive process. Or get rid of the iguanas.

Florida Forever to expand to water


By ALYSON CREAN
acrean@keynoter.com


During the 2008 legislative
session, state Rep. Stan
Mayfield sponsored a bill that
could tie together the best inten-
tions of a statewide effort to pre-
serve working waterfront with a
proven land acquisition pro-
gram.
Next week, Keys residents


have the chance to weigh in on
it.
From 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Aug.
13, representatives from the
Florida Communities Trust, a
section of the Department of
Community Affairs, and the
Department of Agriculture and
Consumer Services will hold a
joint rulemaking workshop at

the Harvey Government Center
in Key West.
"When they started out the
new Florida Forever program,
they looked for ways to improve
it," said Melissa Joiner, DCA's
director of legislative affairs.
"They modeled it after the
Florida Communities Trust pro-
gram."
Mayfield's bill requires a
mechanism for ranking and eval-
uating the state's acquisition of
working waterfront parcels for
preservation. It's a system that
until now had been used by the
state's Florida Forever program
and its forbearer, Preservation
2000.
Those land acquisition pro-
grams were aimed at pristine
chunks of land. Mayfield's bill,
passed in May, uses the same
idea, but applies it to another of
the state's fast-disappearing
treasures, commercial water-
front.
"This could be a good idea
where lands are already zoned to
allow non-water-dependant uses,
and the monies should be spent
in those places," says Richard
Grosso, director of the
Environmental & Land Use Law
Clinic at Nova Southeastern
University.
"But for properties where the
zoning already allows only
water-dependant-uses, the tax-
payers' money should not be

spent to pay landowners to do
what county and city commis-
sions should require simply by
maintaining the existing zon-
ing," said Grosso, who's repre-
sented numerous environmental
groups in land-use lawsuits
involving the Keys.
According to DCA's Joiner,
waterfront access already adds
big points to garnering Florida
Forever funding. But Mayfield's
bill allows commerce into the
equation, meaning some com-
mercial activity could be
allowed on state-acquired land.
This year, the state
Legislature allocated $300 mil-
lion to Florida Forever.
According to the Mayfield bill,
2.5 percent of that, with a cap of
$7.5 million, could be used for
waterfront acquisition, Joiner
said.
Rulemaking means that all of
the rules guiding the new law are
not yet formulated. And though
the bill is set up for local govern-
ments to purchase the lands, it's
likely some local developers will
be on hand at the Aug. 13 work-
shop to weigh in, especially New
Stock Island Properties, which
has invested millions in purchas-
ing a waterfront parcel it hopes
to revamp into a continuous
boardwalk connecting some
commercial businesses and a
hotel.

Homeless man
died naturally,
police say
By ALYSON CREAN
acrean@keynoter.com

A 43-year-old homeless
man was found dead at
Higgs Beach in Key West
Friday.
Several witnesses told
city police investigators
that they .saw Jackie L.
Sykes sleeping on a picnic
table bench at the park and
thought he might be
"sleeping it off," according
to Kenneth Payne, one of
several witnesses at the
scene Friday morning.
Medics suspect Sykes
died sometime during the
night, though several
homeless people did not
report seeing him until
after dawn, a police report
says.
Another witness report-
ed seeing Sykes curl up on
the picnic table bench
around 4:30 Thursday
evening, but she reported
she saw his eyes blinking.
The police report shows
death by natural causes,
but cause of death is not
certain until toxicology
result are in, police
spokeswoman Christie
Phillips says.
The consecutive deaths
of three homeless people
in April started a small
panic among those on the
street, especially because
one of those deaths the
April 7 bludgeoning death
of 59-year-old Michael
Stanier is being investi-
gated as a homicide.
According to Monroe
County Sheriff's Office
spokeswoman Deputy
Becky Herrin, the Sheriff's
Office is still following
leads on the Stanier mur-
der. Stanier was known
among the local homeless
as Gypsy.

Sidewalks hot at Village Council


Vice mayor:
Don't change our
ol' country road
By DAVID BALL
dball@keysreporter.com

A less than two-mile stretch
of the Old Highway on Upper
Matecumbe Key was the sub-
ject of a lengthy and sometimes
emotional debate at an
Islamorada Village Council
meeting on July 24.
The issue was a curbed side-
walk included in a $1 million
plan to resurface and improve
drainage on the two-lane Old
Highway from mile marker
80.2 to 82.
Some council members,
staff and the project engineer
argued the sidewalk would
improve safety by separating
bikers and pedestrians from
cars, while other council mem-
bers and residents said it would
negatively impact what Vice
Mayor Don Achenberg called a
slow "country lane."
"We're looking at one proj-
ect on two diverse areas," said
Achenberg, who suggested the
section of the road from the
Green Turtle restaurant south
could have a lower posted
speed limit and restrictions oh
tractor trailers instead of a sep-


arated sidewalk.
The comments elicited a
strong reaction from
Councilwoman Jill Zima
Borski, who said she was
"appalled" by the rest of the
council.
"As a parent and as a person
in this village who regularly
utilizes our rights of way," she
said, "and as somebody who
looks beyond the next five
years when people may be
retiring or selling to the next
10, 20, 30, 40 years, I cannot
believe that you all think the
Old Highway benefits a major-
ity of residents as the status
quo."
That, in turn, elicited a
strong reaction from
Councilman Michael
Reckwerdt, who said he, unlike
Zima Borski, hadn't heard
from any residents in favor of
the project.
"I've only been walking on
it [the Old Highway] three
times longer than you have and
I actually care about my com-
munity," he said. "I'm not say-
ing we do the project and omit
the bike path, I'm saying we
shouldn't do it [at all] south of
the Green Turtle."
Several residents then spoke
against the project, after which
Reckwerdt repeated, "thank

you resident that lives on the
bike path."
However, the project got
support from other residents,
including Village Manager Ken
Fields, who lives on the Old
Highway and chose to speak to
the council as a member of the
public.
"One group that's not here
to speak ... is the significant
number of bike riders, people
we don't often see at village
council meetings, bus boys and
dish washers that use that [Old
Highway] as a major trans-
portation route," he said. "As a
resident, anything that helps
separate traffic I'm all in favor
of."
Project engineer Fernando
Larios told the council he
couldn't recommend removing
the bicycle and pedestrian path,
citing safety concerns and pos-
sible liability by not allowing
access as required by the
Americans with Disabilities
Act.
"As an engineer I have a
moral obligation to give you a
design that is safe for pedestri-
ans and cars," Larios said.
"You cannot have individuals


sharing the road."
In the end, the council
approved a modified version of
the plan that removed the larg-
er sidewalk from part of the
road and replaced it with an
extension of pavement similar
to the pedestrian and bike path
on the Plantation Key section
of the Old Highway.

Authority board approved the
$2.5 million purchase of the pri-
vate sewer plant, which is owned
hearing scheduled by the Lujan family. It serves
g. 12 at the Gerald around 500 homes on the north
entary School cafe- side of Stock Island.
ve homeowners a "Mr. Lujan accepted the
igh on whether the offer," Aqueduct Authority
eys Aqueduct Executive Director Jim
would buy, upgrade Reynolds said, "then we had our
the island's sewer first neighborhood meeting. We
heard a lot of concerns about
the Aqueduct what was going to happen to
meet the 2010 deadline, so this
hearing is just to deal with the
acquisition."
The state has given the Keys
until July 2010 to bring its sewer
systems up to a level where
nearshore water is not threatened
by leaching nutrients.
The Key Haven plant has
belonged to the Lujan family,
developer of the suburban-style
neighborhood featuring canal
frontage for most homes, since
the first building began in the
1960s.
The sewer system faces seri-
ous upgrades, Reynolds said.
The Aqueduct Authority
oversees most of the sewer proj-
ects in unincorporated Monroe
County. According to Reynolds,
the sale should appeal to the
Lujans since upgrades to fix
water intrusion and corroding


pipes might run even more than
the sale price.
Though eventually the
Aqueduct Authority might look
at piping the effluent up to the
Rockland Key plant under con-
struction, that decision is still a
ways off, he said.
"The average bill on Key
Haven is $78 a month,"
Reynolds said. "That could
potentially come down, but not
right away. That's because that
rate is based on the debt service
already on that system.
"So right now, the bottom
line," he said, "is do the cus;
tomers object to the FKAA
acquiring the system?"
A second option, proposed by
the private owners of the KW
Resort Utilities plant on Stock
Island, would pipe effluent to
that plant, which serves south
Stock Island and the Key West
Golf Course.
The private utility, however,
is looking at some options of its
own, including a 60 percent rate
hike, which is now before the
state Public Service Commission
for review. The owners of KW
Resort Utilities are also looking
at selling land under the sewer
plant to developers.

A pre-dawn dip in the
Founders Park pool Saturday
cost four Miami residents a
trip to jail.
The four were found trying
to hide in a corner of the pool
at the Islamorada park at 4
a.m., according to a Monroe
County Sheriff's Office
report.
Jean P. Arrue, 19; David
Cabanas, 20; Valerie
Maldonado, 19; and Georgina
Patrizio, 20, all were charged
with misdemeanor trespass
and released after booking.
They climbed a chain-link
fence marked with a "no tres-
passing" sign to gain access to
the pool, deputies say, but did-
n't commit any damage.


according to the report.
"This was pretty blatant,"
Islamorada Parks and
Recreation Director John
Sutter said. "They'd pitched a
tent on the [Founders Park]
beach and were making a
night of it:"
The park beach at mile
marker 87 closes at sunset. No
overnight camping is allowed.
Charges will be pressed "to
send a strong message that
this is how you get arrested
and have your car towed,"
Sutter said. "Using the pool
like this is dangerous. We
have to discourage it."
Deputies regularly patrol
the bayfront park at night after
previous incidents of late-
night activity.

Permit points now for sale


By ALYSON CREAN
acrean@keynoter.com

For years, Keys residents have
been able to buy vacant lots and
donate them to the county for con-
servation to increase their chances
of getting a building permit. It's a
system in which people accrue
points in order to build.
Now the county has put a mar-
ket value of $11,750 on each of
those points.
The County Commission
unanimously approved the new
value late last month. It allows
potential builders to buy up to two
points toward a permit. Points are
awarded for such building fea-
tures as solar energy, maintaining
open space and utilizing a cistern
to collect water.
Putting a value on points is
designed to give those waiting to
build another means of meeting
the county's conservation require-
ments.
In the past, under the old rate-
of-growth ordinance, donating
lots for preservation was the best
way to move up on the permit
waiting list.
But unbuildable lots average
close to $50,000, so this system
gives a more affordable alterna-
tive, according to Growth
Management Director Andrew
Trivette. The county will use the
money raised to purchase conser-
vation land.
It's the latest addition to the


tier land-mapping system, which
categorizes Keys land based upon
environmental sensitivity. Those
with the lowest sensitivity are eas-
iest to build on and require fewer
points. The more sensitive the
land, the more points it takes to be
considered for a permit allocation.
There are more than 300 peo-
ple on the county's permit waiting
list. Rudy Krause, president of the
Florida Keys Contractors
Association, has several lots on
the waiting list.
He says that while the price
seems fair, it's unlikely he'd pay
the $23,500 for two points on any
of his lots.
"For me to build a brand new
house right now, I'd be lucky to
break even," he said. "With all of
the costs, if you don't sell right
away, the carrying costs will eat
you right up. And you could buy a
decent house right now that's
already built. Buyers have so
many houses to look at, it's just
too much of a risk to build a new
house right now."
But buying points might
appeal to families who want to
build a primary residence.
According to Trivette, the tier
system requires the county to
come up with a fair market value
for a permit allocation. The for-
mula, he explained in a memo to
the County Commission, is based
on the number of lots available for


sale for conservation.
According to the calculations,
there are 871 unbuildable lots that
could be purchased and donated to
the county.
The state gives the county
fewer than 200 permit allocations
annually, and that has left many
lot owners waiting years for per-
mits.
People have often complained
that allowing lot donations and
now the purchase of two points in
the point system gives people
with money an unfair advantage.
Commissioner Sylvia Murphy
asked if there isn't a fairer way to
determine who gets one of the
limited permits.
"The only fair way," Trivette
said, "and it's not fair in my opin-
ion, is to do allocations by lottery.
And that's too unpredictable, and
that's why the commission voted
that down when this system was
being created."

Rink with two girls they knew,
Melissa Cerullo, 16, and Alexa
Walterson, 17. They said two
men wearing masks then hit
them both in the face and head
with a handgun. When the
attack started, the victims said
the two girls ran away.
The victims recognized
their attackers' voices and
identified them as Dontrell
Holloway and Robert Johnson,
both 18, Deputy Becky Herrin
said.
Harris was airlifted to
Miami, where he was treated
for a fractured skull, concus-
sion and numerous cuts and
bruises. Richardson was treat-
ed at Lower Keys Medical


Center
Detectives interviewed the
two girls who'd been with
Harris and Carey. The girls
said they'd taken the boys to
the Ski Rink to be alone and to
smoke pot, and said both boys
had been "flashing a lot of
cash" lately and bragged about
committing a burglary at a
house on Flagler Avenue in
Key West.
Detective Henry Hamilton,
lead investigator on the case,
interviewed Johnson Friday.
Johnson said he was there
when the incident occurred but
did not hit the victims.
He was charged with armed
robbery and aggravated bat-
tery. A warrant has been issued
for Holloway on the same
charges.

Traps laid, lobsters lurking


Fishermen can
only guess at
what they'll catch
By SEAN KINNEY
Keynoter contributor

Commercial fishermen were
keeping a close eye on last
week's recreational mini-season
as they prepared for their turn on
the water. But they weren't sure
what to make after hearing from
divers.
"We're getting mixed reports
up and down the Keys; some peo-
ple say it's good, some people
saying it's spotty," said Scott
Zimmerman, executive director
of the Florida Keys Commercial
Fishermen's Association.
"Gas is up $2 per gallon from


last year and that's definitely a
factor."
Lobster fishermen began plac-
ing their traps Friday for a soak
period before the first pull of the
season today.
Billy Niles has been lobster
fishing in the Florida Keys for 50
years.
He said commercial fishermen
are responding to high diesel
prices by running slower to con-
serve fuel.
"We've got to leave earlier
and work a little harder," he said.
Niles said that fuel costs have
even been passed on to bait sup-
pliers, who in turn raise the cost
of bait they sell.
According to the Energy
Information Association, a U.S.
government organization that


tracks energy use statistics, the
current average cost of diesel fuel
in Gulf Coast states is $4.57 per
gallon. But in the Keys, diesel
sells for closer to $5 a gallon. In
comparison, the average price of
diesel in the Gulf Coast states last
year was $1.762.
Monroe County accounts for
about half of the state's 1,368
commercial trap-fishing licenses'.
There also are 152 licensed lob-
ster divers in the Florida Keys,
and 354 statewide.
About 1,200 families in the
Florida Keys rely on lobster for a
significant portion of their in-
comes, according to state figures.
Lobster is the most economi-
cally significant fishery to -the
local commercial fishing industry.
Zimmerman described the

Beach Cafe
1405 Duval St.

The southernmost end of
Duval Street has one of the
best-kept secrets in Key
West: a laid back open-air
restaurant that serves break-
fast, lunch and dinner. It's so
close to the water that you
can hear the lap of waves
even on a calm day and the
sand is so fine and white you
can't stifle the urge to kick
off your shoes.
The Southernmost Beach
Caf6 is the newest incarna-
tion of this little beach
restaurant that locals have
loved for years. Nearly a
year ago the Southernmost
Hotel Group bought the
place, sprucing it up in sky
blue and white so it feels a
little like Bermuda blended
with Key West;
Manager Jeff Merritt
describes the cuisine as
American Continental with a
lunch that is more "beach
fare."
The breakfast menu
includes omelets stuffed with
crab and shrimp. You can
stag your lunch with pelican
wings (not really!) and move
on to salads and burgers.
A full bar includes a
"virtual card catalogue of
drinks," including specialty
martinis made with espresso
and Key lime juice.

Sells what you
need to
get out there
By RACHEL BOWMAN
Keynoter contributor

Middle Keys residents and
visitors whose watersports inter-
ests lean to the extreme have a
shop in Marathon dedicated to
meeting their needs.
Kevin Scalavrin and his wife,
Jennifer, moved to the Keys
three years ago from West Palm
Beach, and they quickly recog-
nized a lack of spearfishing and
kiteboarding resources. They
opened Above and Below
Extreme Ocean Sports in Town
Square Mall in April.
Partnering with Biff Goss of
Big Time Discount Bait and
Tackle, the couple's goal is to not
only provide premium equip-
ment but also the means to spear
that huge grouper or kiteboard all
the way to Bahia Honda.
The sport of kiteboarding
involves using a kite to propel
you through the water while
standing on a kiteboard, similar
to a wakeboard. Though kites
were first used as a means of
propulsion by the Chinese in the
1800s, it's only in recent years
that kiteboarding has caught on
in the United States, especially in
the Keys, where the windy days
that are not so great for fishing
are ideal for kiteboarding.
Above and Below sells kites
and boards and also offers one-
on-one kiteboarding lessons. For
experienced kiteboarders looking
to make a day of it, "downwind-

ing" trips are available, which
include transportation, rental
equipment, guides and a boat.
The water in the Keys is

Poachers

a problem

LOBSTER / From 15

preparations of local commercial
fishermen:
"They're poring over log-
books and previous seasons'
data," he said.
"They generally spread gear
out based on history of where
they concentrated their effort and
if they see poor results, they'll
move."
Niles said that in previous
seasons, traps that don't do well
would be relocated.
"We have to cut down on
moving them around," Niles
said, because of the cost of fuel.
Aside from the high cost of
diesel, Zimmerman said other
concerns for commercial lobster
season include the possibility of
hurricanes and poachers robbing
commercial traps.
Last year, commercial fisher-
men in the Florida Keys brought
in about 4 million pounds of lob-
ster, a take that Zimmerman called
"not great. but not horrible."

Passive cleanup
set for Old Settlers

Tavernier residents can
beautify a community park
Saturday,
In lieu of its monthly
meeting, the Tavemier
Community Association
hosts the informal daylong
cleanup at Old Settlers Park,
mile marker 91.8.
Participants can stop at the
oceanside park at any time
during day. The association
plans to leave some trash
bags in a visible location.
"Instead of all of us
meeting there at [the same
time], come when you feel
like it," group President
Jerry Wilkinson said. "There
is no established time other
than park hours."
If park-goers each gather
one bag of trash, he said,
the area should be com-
pletely cleaned by day's
end. Participants are advised
to wear shoes and bring a
pair of gloves. There are no
restrooms at Old Settlers
Park.
Old Settlers Park was
farmed in 1882 by owners
Robert J. and Patience
Albury. Sarah Pinder and
Roger Albury later built a
home at the site.
Old Settlers Park is next
to the Sunshine Market, a
building that once housed -
one of the area's first stores.

Key West veteran finds new mission


Group seeks
closure for
military families
By ALYSON CREAN
acrean@keynoter.com

Mike Driscoll, who retired
- after a 33-year career in the U.S.
Navy, knows what it's like to
have someone you know and
admire disappear.
"Scott Speicher was a lieu-
tenant commander and the first to
be shot down in Desert Storm,"
Driscoll says. "He was in my
squadron. To me, this is impor-
taut."
Michael Scott Speicher, from
Kansas City, Kan., was a Navy
pilot shot out of the Iraq sky the
first night of Operation Desert
Storm in 1991. Over the next
decade, controversy arose
whether he was alive or dead.
After the military initially list-
ed him as killed in action, the
Navy changed his status to miss-
ing in action.
Key West resident Driscoll, a
retired master chief petty officer,
knows the pain of uncertainty.
That's why Driscoll is part of
Moore's Marauders, a nonprofit
organization with the goal of
finding the remains of military
members all over the world who
remain unaccounted for.
"Scott Speicher was in my
squadron," Driscoll says. "To me,
this is important. The family
needs closure."
Driscoll intends to accompany
the group on its November mis-
sion to Pagan Island in the
Mariana chain of islands in the
South Pacific.
Ken Moore founded Moore's
Marauders, a result of 30 years he
spent searching for his uncle, Bill
Weber, who'd gone missing dur-
ing World War II; Moore finally
located his remains in 1998.
What began as one man's life-
long passion to answer the ques-
tion of what happened to his
uncle on his final flight has
turned into a mission for the
approximately 35 members of
Moore's Marauders.
Since their founding in 1998,
they've mounted 12 missions
searching for the missing from all
20th Century wars but Desert
Storm (the areas to be searched
are considered too high security)


. This is the crew of
S 'The Life of Riley,' a
B-29 that went down
with Ken Moore's
L uncle, Bill Weber.
Members are (top
N from left) Lt. W.G.
"Weber, Lt. Col.J.B.
Riley, Lt. J.G. Kelly,
Capt. W.W. Homer
and Lt. Worthington;
and (bottom) Cpl.
English, Sgt. W.R. Bass,
Cpl. Dannaher, Pfc.
Doyle, Sgt. Truelove
and Cpl. Ellis.


This is Lt. W.G. Weber in
uniform. His nephew, Ken
Moore, would locate his final
resting place in the South
Pacific in 1998.
and, Driscoll says, determined
what happened to some 2,000
service members. Twenty-seven
more missions are planned for the
next three years.
"Most searches start out with
somebody contacting the
Marauders," Driscoll says. "In
some instances, we find more
than who we were looking for.
Once we find a location, we turn
it over to the defense organization
in charge."
The group has grown from
finding the remains of one
American flier to finding soldiers
of any nationality, Driscoll says.
According to Moore, who
lives in Scottsdale, Ariz., there
are some 35,000 men considered
missing in action from World War
II alone.
"We bring a talent to the table
that is really cutting edge," he
says. "My volunteers work for
the [National Security Aaencvl


This is the nose of 'The Life of Riley.' The B-29 went down in World
War II, claiming Bill Weber.


and CIA and have special permis-
sion to help us."
Driscoll says the intensive
research needed to narrow down
where a soldier was last seen can
sometimes bring closure to sever-
al families, sometimes from vari-
ous nations. That's why the group
works closely with the Japanese
Department of Health and Labor
as well as the U.S. Department of
Defense and the Joint POW/MIA
Accounting Command.
Driscoll spent 33 years in the
Navy, retiring in 2005.
"I've been around people being
killed in the military," he said. "I


know how sad it is for family
members in instances where
there's no word and the person is
missing and presumed dead."
That's why he's working to
recruit help for the November
mission.
Driscoll's name hit local
papers late last year when he set
out to raise enough money to
bring a replica of the Vietnam
Veterans Memorial to Key West.
Once he raises the money he
needs, he says, leftover donations
will go to Moore's Marauders.

Breastfeeding
week has arrived

This week is World
Breastfeeding Week, and the
Florida Keys Healthy Start
Coalition is distributing up-to-
date breastfeeding information
to island medical offices.
Obesity, low immunity, ear
infections and stomach prob-
lems are some of the most com-
mon problems associated with
children who aren't breast-fed,
the coalition says. It goes on to
say that the American Academy
of Pediatrics recommends only
breast milk for the first six
months and to continue breast-
feeding for at least 12 months.
For mothers who cannot
always breast feed due to work
or other restrictions, the Healthy
Start Coalition offers a hospital-
grade breast pump loan pro-
gram. Pumps are available for
free to Healthy Start clients and
for a small rental fee to others.

And when it was done,
Marathon's Taylor Konrath
placed third in track and field


- a good showing considering
the 13-year-old was one of just

Konrath advanced to the

Teresa said the trip was amaz-
ing for Taylor, but also for the
city of Marathon.
"Now we know what these
kids are competing for. Jimmy
and Ali are going to have a
tremendous turnout next year
because Taylor was able to do
this," she said.
Marathon Parks and
Recreation Manager Jimmy
Schmidt and Program Assistant
Ali Adams brought the Junior
Olympics competition to the city
this year.
Taylor began her quest to get
to Chicago by winning gold
medals in all four disciplines
offered soccer, basketball, ten-
nis and track and field at the
Marathon competition. She then
won gold medals in soccer and
track and field at the regional,
with track and field scores good
enough to qualify her for the trip
to the national games.
While in Chicago the family
was treated to a waterfront
Embassy Suites hotel room, as
well as trips to the local muse-
ums, planetarium and aquarium.
Taylor and her family also took in
the Sears Tower, the Navy Pier
and a Cubs game against the
Florida Marlins at historic
Wrigley Field.


Taylor said she made no bones
about whom she was rooting for
- even drawing boos from the
friendly confines faithful for
brandishing a huge Marlins sign.
"I was surrounded by Cubs
fans. They're aggressive," she
joked.
Taylor said the trip was a great
experience and that she made
friendships with kids from across
the country.
"I met a lot of people," she
said. "It was a lot of fun and....
We exchanged numbers and e-
mail" addresses."

MILLER / From 21

In the 200 meter breaststroke,
usually considered Miller's best
event, she placed 14th (2:34.72)
in the preliminaries.
That put her in the B Final, a
race she won with a 2:31.73
clocking, giving her ninth place
overall. If Miller had competed in
the championship, her time
would have put her in fifth place.
The Athens Bulldogs capped
the meet Friday by taking second
place in the 4x 100-meter medley
race, Miller swimming the
breaststroke in the second leg.

Coral Shores High School
sports teams will play at their
outdoor stadium newly named
for conservationist George
Barley Jr.
Barley, a seventh-generation
Floridian who became one of the
state's foremost advocates for
restoring the Everglades and
Florida Bay, had a home in
Islamorada.
He died in a 1995 crash of a
private plane while on a trip to
rally support for Everglades
restoration.
"We are honored to have our
stadium named after Mr. Barley,"
Coral Shores Principal Ron
.Martin said. "Everyone in South
Florida owes him a great debt of
gratitude. He was truly a modem
day hero."
A sign above the football
scoreboard at the Tavemrnier
school will read: "Welcome to
George M. Barley Jr. Memorial
Stadium 'You can make the
difference'."
The sign "will serve as both a
reminder of his efforts and the


d responsibility
we all have to
work for the
betterment of
A the Ever
,, .glades and
Florida Bay.".
Barley's
widow, Mary,
has been a
BARLEY major contrib-
utor to Hurricane sports programs
and agreed to make an additional
donation for a name leasing
arrangement at the stadium,
Athletic Director Rich Russell
said.


"I honestly cannot think of a
more worthy name and cause for
our stadium," Russell said.
"Mary has been incredibly gener-
ous to our athletic department.
She literally has saved some of
our programs."
George Barley Jr. was a suc-
cessful developer in Central
Florida, and turned his passion to
preserving the Florida Bay waters
he loved to fish from his home in
Islamorada.
He served as the first-chair-
man of the Florida Marine
Fisheries Commission and as the
first chairman of the Florida Keys
National Marine Sanctuary
Advisory Council.

Keys Fishing


Offshore
The recent week's off-
shore angling was an on-
and-off affair. One day, it
could be great with slam-
mer-size dolphin found at
20 to 22 miles, and the next
day it was tough to find
more than a few mahi mahi.
The Islamorada hump
has been a good bet early
. for the blackfin tuna. And
remember to troll your lures
three times as far back as
for the dolphin.

Reefs
Charter captains who
book the brief half-day'trip
are mostly anchoring on the
reef early and chumming up
the yellowtail snapper. The
YT bite is still good but
may last only a few more
weeks, as the 'tails have, for
the most part, spawned and
will become a little less rav-
enous.
Some captains are now
turning their attention to the
king mackerel. Yes, the
kings are available already,
not just in wintertime. A live
bait or de-boned ballyhoo
slow trolled deep will be
just the ticket for the king-
fish.

Gulf, bay
A few guides report a
bonefish presence in the
mid-backcountry. Poling or
even drifting the interior
flats in Florida Bay may
yield bones, permit and tar-
pon. The tackle would be
10-pound spin with a
shrimp for the bones and
20-pound spin with a small
blue crab to toss at the silver
kings.

Flats, backcountry
Capt. Lou Brubaker out
of Islamorada fished
Saturday evening in an out-
of-the way spot and jumped
off a tarpon more than 100
pounds. Then moments
later, he hooked another
Leviathan and finally
released the silver king after
one hour, 50 minutes.

There's plenty of

Lobster divers
and fishermen
must co-exist

Today's the opening of the
eight-month recreational and
commercial lobster season, and
increasingly, it seems the season
is starting to rival that of mini-
season, which was last week, in
terms of the number of boats on
the water whose passengers are
diving for bugs.
That means sometimes, there
are conflicts between the recre-
ational divers and the commercial
fishermen.
Right out front, let me say I'm
a fan of the two-day mini-season.
Like everyone visiting for it, I get
caught up in the excitement and
anticipation the week leading up
to it. But there are a few things
we all consistently see when out
and about looking for the spiny
little buggers that can be avoided
through a little more education
and awareness.
Lobster in very shallow
water.
I rarely, if ever, see lobster
during daylight hours in less than
a foot and a half of water,
although I am amazed by the
number of boats I see on shallow
flats with snorkelers who can't


even sub-
m merge
because of
W'^',-J ?the depth.
Shallow-
f +- -4 w after
guides need
these type
Sof skinny-
water flats
to not only
stalk the
fish that
feed there,
Cal Sutphin but also as a
safe haven
from all of the boats zooming
around. The guides are trying to
make a living and there are more
than enough spots to find lobster in
a little deeper water.
Running or sitting with
your dive flag still up.
Nothing bothers me more than
running from one flat to another
and having to come off plane 10
times because I see a vessel with
a dive flag displayed, only to find
the divers drinking beers on the
boat, just idling looking for
another spot.
Also, if I had a dollar for the
number of boats displaying dive
flags that are running on plane, I
probably wouldn't have to write
this column each week. I accom-
panied Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission


Officer David Dipre last mini-
season and by far the most verbal
warnings he gave were for this
situation.
+ Running across flats with
mud in your prop wash.
I admit, this problem isn't
unique to mini-season alone. It's
a daily problem in the Keys, but
with the number of boats here the
past week, the problem is more
pronounced.
Forgetting the fact that shal-
low-water fish are very nervous
and weary, it is illegal. If you find
yourself in that situation (which I
have myself on a few occasions),
then power down, lighten the
load and push. Not too compli-
cated.
Quickness at boat ramps.
Public boat ramps are tough to
come by in the Keys, so guides
have no other choice but to share
the ramps with lobster hunters
hitting the ramp at 6 a.m. just to
get in line.
I've seen this situation a thou-
sand times: After waiting behind
a boat and trailer for 45 minutes,
it finally is his turn to launch and
he pulls in position at the top of
the boat ramp. That's when he
puts the drain plug in, pulls the
tie-down straps off, puts the cool-
er on the boat, digs in a miscella-

Time to share the water with commercial guys


Use extra care
to avoid their
buoys and lines
If you thought things were
buggy last week, think again:
Today is the start of the regular
eight-month lobster season, and
just about everyone and their rel-
atives will head out on the water
mainly because there are a little
more than two days of it 237
days straight, to be exact.
One. big difference is special
rules are not in effect for the reg-
ular season. For example, you
can dive at night now and get
your six-per-person limit before
the sun rises.
Also, there is longer a ban on
diving developed shorelines
except for in Key Colony Beach
waters. That city maintains a
300-foot buffer through Aug. 16;
you get caught diving for lobster

buoys and not over them. Both
the commercial fishermen and
your fund for your outboard
repairman will be grateful for it.
Knowing what you're avoid-
ing is always good. The buoy is
attached to the trap on the bot-
tom by black Polly rope, which
is usually somewhat longer than
the depth of the water that it's in.
This causes the rope to hang for
some distance on the surface for
the first few weeks the trap is in
the water; then the ropes get cov-
ered with growth and soak up
enough water to sink below the
buoy.
This will cause an area up
current of the buoy where you
don't want to travel.
When you leave your dock or
channel, check the direction of
the current as well as the effect
of the wind. This is best done at
the first trap buoy you see. You
can then tell which side of the
buoy you should be able to pass

safely.
It's a good idea, especially in
Florida Bay, with its many
changes in current directions, to
check every couple of miles to
ensure your trip will be unevent-
ful (it's the fishing trips on
which you forget the travel that
are the most enjoyable. In other
words, you didn't hit anything).
Now, there are a few divers
that think lobstermen have put
these beautiful rectangular boxes
on the sea bottom to corral lob-
sters just for them. They shall
remain nameless (until we read
about them in the Sheriff's
Office arrest log or the obitu-
aries, depending on who caught
them). Be it known that you do
not touch their traps, period.
I am not knocking the arrival
of all the trap buoys, just
attempting to make you aware of
their presence.
Night boat travel is usually
the most affected. Without the

use of a spotlight, it's difficult to
miss the buoys.
, Now is a great time to fish on
the reef at night. But when it's
dark, transgressing the waters
becomes an even greater chal-
lenge. A good spotlight is almost
a must to avoid the buoys not
to mention a good idea any time
of year.
Going a little slower than full
throttle is always a good idea
when you are not that familiar
with the area you're in. It is bet-
ter to get there a little later than
not at all.
Now that you have learned to
get by the buoys, we'll talk
about how to utilize them to
gather information you need
when bottom fishing in both .the
bay and reef areas. -

uses the public bathroom at that
exact moment, giving him no one
to back the boat off the trailer.
I'm not confrontational, but
come on already. Have some
respect for others, especially the


gang trying to make a living.
And of course, park smartly.
When every other trailer is in one
direction and tight next to each
other, don't park cock-eyed just
because you are in a rush and so
excited to get to the crawfish.
There's a balance that can
exist between the divers and the
guides with just a little common
sense and courtesy. With that in
mind, go get them bugs.

They also give you a refer-
ence point for a location you
may have marked as holding
fish. Use them as a reference
point for how far up current
from the location you have
marked, the direction and speed
of the current, and where to
anchor to best fish the exact
location you've found.


There are always two sides
to anything, so be careful of hit-
ting them. But know how to uti-
lize the advantages they give
you and you'll find it's not so
bad after all. With the reef fish-
ing as good as it is right now,
these buoys will be extremely
useful.
On another note, please use
care passing through bridge
channels, as divers will be all
over them, especially around


the period of slack tide.
Daytime is tough enough, but at
night you may not be able to see
their boat, much less their dive
flag. This, while maneuvering
around. the trap buoys, can
cause a problem.
