Islamorada diving coach
Arturo Miranda took his first
Olympic plunge off the spring-
board today, 16 years after estab-
lishing himself as a world-class
athlete. -
Miranda and 3-meter synchro-
nized diving partner Alexandre
Despatie were considered strong
contenders to win a medal for
Canada, in .the. 2008 Beijing
Olympic Games. -


The men's
synchronized
diving event

local time;
results weren't
available at
press time.
ADRIAN Islamorada
ADRIAN already can
claim one gold medalist from the
2008 Olympics: Nathan Adrian,
19, a freestyle swimmer.
Adrian swam preliminary
heats for the United States in the
4x100 freestyle race with
Olympics star Michael Phelps,
helping set a world record
Sunday. Adrian didn't swim in


en


the medal race, which the U.S.
won with another world-record
time, but was awarded a gold for
helping get his team there.
Despatie and Miranda have
finished second or third in every
major international synchronized
diving meet over the last two
years. Always ahead of them
were the Chinese, now ranked as
the world's strongest diving pro-
gram.
Despatie and Miranda were
silver medalists at the 2007
World Championships, last year's
biggest meet, which won them a
spot in Beijing.
Miranda took over as diving
coach at' Founders Park in
Islamorada in 2005.

Classes resume on Monday Keys briefs


Acevedo says
fewer teachers
left district
By ALYSON CREAN
acrean@keynoter.com

The hallways of Monroe
County's schools were echo-
ing with the patter of rather
large feet this week.
Students don't return to the
classrooms until next Monday,
but the School District's 676
teachers started this past
Monday to prepare class-
rooms, attend professional
instruction and get reacquaint-
ed after the summer break.
"Brand-new teachers, those
who are new to Monroe
County, actually started last
Thursday," Superintendent
Randy Acevedo said. "But this
week everyone has been
receiving professional devel-
opment, focusing on differen-
tiated instruction so they can
appeal to varying levels of
receptivity in their students."
After years of high teacher
turnover, Acevedo says this is
a banner year.
"We. only had to hire 40
new teachers," he said. "Last
year it was 75."
"As a school, we have had
very little teacher turnover,"
said Amber Bosco, principal at
Poinciana Elementary School
in Key West. "We only have
two brand-new teachers to the
county."
The number of students
who walk through the door
Monday is the great unknown.
At the end of June, the district
counted more than 8,200 stu-
dents.
Acevedo said it's hard to
know what to plan on for the
coming school year.
"There are three factors
that play into the number of
students at. the beginning of
the school year," he said.
"Many don't start class until
after-Labor Day. Others may
not wait that long, but they
come after family vacations
end. And finally,, we experi-
enced a flat line on enrollment
last year due to the housing
market."
He said there's a good
chance that housing cb'bld
have a similar effect this year.
It might even account for

School in Key West.


some decline in enrollment, he
said.
But the district doesn't take
the numbers to heart until after
Labor Day, which falls on
Sept. I this year, two weeks
after school begins.
Bosco says she expects
between 600 and 620 kids,
"which pretty much maxes out
the classrooms.
The school was built for
599 students and completed in
2006. She said last year, the
year-end student population
was 628.
She said this is the first
year the school will be consid-
ered a Title I school, a desig-'
natio6n basd on the number of


children that receive free or
reduced-priced lunches.
This is also the first year
when the entire school has
gone to laptops in each class-
room.
At Horace O'Bryant
Middle School in Key West
and Marathon High School, a
new program has been devel-
oped to help teachers teach
kids to read.
"It taught teachers to teach
reading in their contact area,"
Acevedo said. So for example,
if a teacher has a student that
excels in math but cannot read
well, that math teacher has
strategies to help those stu-
dents."


Equipment stolen
from construction site

Crews returning to work
Monday, morning at the
SJewfish Creek Bridge con-
struction site found two stor-
age containers had been
forced open overnight and
more than $40,000 worth of
tools and equipment stolen.
The Monroe Count\
Sheriff's Office says the safe-
ty foreman for one of the con-
struction companies on the
site told Deputy Michael
Sielicki the burglary qo.ok
place sometime between 6:30
p.m. Sunday and 6:30 aim.
Monday. The victims of the
crime are Gamey's

Construction.
Among equipment report-
ed stolen are eight generators,
a pressure washer, pumps,
hammer drills, chop sans, a
skill saw and two chain saws.

District braces


for more cuts


More declines
in property
values projected
By DAVID BALL
dball@keysreporter.com

Florida's economic picture
is even bleaker than first antic-
ipated, and Monroe County
schools should brace once
again for funding cuts., officials
say.
"We haven't had word yet
how it will impact us," School
District Superintendent Randy
Acevedo said, "but we've been
told to be ready for some-
thing."
The worry comes after econ-
omists from the state House,
Senate, tax department and
governor's office met recently
to estimate the total property
values of the state for purposes
of calculating school taxes.
According to The Miami
Herald, those economists say
state property values decreased
6 percent, or $153 billion, from
2007 to 2008. That's double
what was projected last
November.
State property values are
estimated to drop an additional
4.92 percent next year,
decreasing from $2.43 trillion
to almost $2.35 trillion in
2009.
Such a decline means schools
would lose about $140 million in
tax revenue statewide, unless the
Legislature increases the tax
rate.
State funds make up close to
20 percent of the Monroe
County School District's oper-
ating budget. Last year, the dis-
trict received $18.28 million
from the state, according to
district Finance Director Kathy
Reitzel.
This year, the district is pro-
jecting $17.49 million from the
state before an anticipated
"rollback" in taxes by the
Legislature after the November
elections, Reitzel said.
"The tax rates that the
School District can levy are
established by the Department
of Education through a some-
what complicated formula that
takes into account a.base esti-


mate of what it costs to educate
a student, certain adjustments
for rural issues, cost of living
considerations and the number
of exceptional education stu-
dents," Reitzel said. "We can-
not just raise taxes to make up
for a decline in property val-
ues."
The Monroe district saw two
waves of funding cuts last year
totaling $1.5 million, which
Acevedo said was offset local-
ly with savings on employee
insurance and reductions in
travel and discretionary spend-
ing.
"They [the state] give us a
number what we're going to
receive from them, and that's
how we will build our budget,"
Acevedo said. "They may
come back during the [school]
year and decide to cut, and
we'll have to make reductions
to make it work."
For the coming year, the
School Board capped spending
at $90.5 million, which is about
3.7 percent less than spending
the past year. Acevedo said he
cut $6 million in projected
spending to meet the cap.
The board has since
approved that preliminary
budget, which Acevedo said
was based on a state tax rate
that accounts for a decrease in
property values. The Keys
.Property Appraiser's Office put
that decrease at $1.6- billion in
Monroe County.
Acevedo said it would be
difficult to trim any more from
what he sees as a very lean
2008-09 budget, although he's
forced to start identifying
potential areas.
"It would be in non-direct
functions, that's for sure," he
said. "Cutting in schools and
classrooms would be the last
place we'd look."
State economists are likely
to forecast at their meeting
Friday a large budget hole on
top of the $6 billion the
Legislature and Gov. Charlie
Crist already cut over the past
year. That may require more
budget cuts and dipping into
the state's dwindling reserves,
the Herald reported. -

At Olympics, 'You have to be perfect'


OLYMPICS / From I

He has busy training for the
Olympics over the last several
months, but Miranda made time
to call Tavernier diver Miles
Miller, 10, before Miller went to
the recent national juniors diving
meet.
"He told Miles to stay confi-
dent and reminded him that he's
come a -really long way as a
diver," said Lorie LaLonde
Miller, Miles' mother.
Miranda, 36, is the oldest
diver at the 2008 Olympics.
He qualified as a solo diver for
the 1992 and 2000 Games, but
was unable to compete in either

event.
In 1992, sports officials in his
native Cuba decided since
Miranda was not likely to medal,
so they would not spend the
money to send him to Barcelona.
After moving to Canada,
Miranda won a spot. on the
Canadian team for the 2000
Games in Australia. He was in
Sydney when Cuban officials
protested his Canadian residency.
The dispute prevented him from
competing.
"All kinds of crazy stuff hap--
pened to him," Despatie said.
Despatie, a 2004 Olympics
silver medalist off the 3-meter
board, stands among Canada's
biggest sports stars. Diving-
savvy Chinese fans mobbed
Despatie, 23, at the airport when
he and Miranda arrived for the
Olympics, acknowledging him as
one the best divers in the world.
"At the Olympics, you have to
be perfect," Despatie said after a
2007 workout at Founders Park
in Islamorada. "When' we per-
formed at the World
Championships, we weren't per-
fect. We can do better. We have to
make sure every quality is just
right."


Synchronized diving became
and Olympic sport in 2004.
Despatie partnered with Miranda
since the two were friends, and
share the same physical build.
"It's physically tough to stay
together," Miranda has said, "but
there's more to it than that."
Miranda remains the head of
the Islamorada diving program
but his post-Olympics plans were
not certain.
Trained in Keys
Adrian, who lists Islamorada
as his hometown in Olympics
biographical information,
received a gold medal for his part
in the 4x100 win, although he did
not swim the final.
He came to the Keys to train at
Founders Park with The Race
Club swimmers, coach Mike
Bottom and mentor Gary Hall Jr.
The 6-foot-5 native of
Washington state took a leave
from competition and studies at
the University of California to
focus on the Olympics but said he
plans to return. -
Bottom is leaving the Keys.
He was hired in June as the
University of Michigan's swim
coach.

of Community Affairs to support
the state's petition to stop the
Miami-Dade County Com-
mission from allowing two con-
struction projects outside the
Urban Development Boundary.
The Urban Development
Boundary is a line in the western
portion of Miami-Dade intended
to limit suburban sprawl.
Approval to allow a Lowe's
home improvement store and a
shopping plaza outside the
boundary would compromise the
water supply, economy and qual-
ity of life for Miami-Dade resi-
dents, the Conservation
Association says.
In March 2007, landowner
Atlantic Civil canceled plans to
build a town of 18,000 on envi-
ronmentally sensitive wetlands
near Florida City just north of the
Keys that would have expanded
the Urban Development
Boundary.
Atlantic Civil had assessed the
considerable political and regula-
tory challenges facing the project
and decided instead to pursue tra-
ditional business activities there
of rock mining and farming.

Do the right thing

and still get dropped

So this is how it works in the insurance business.
Reduce the risks by hardening your house and State Farm will
ask for a 47 percent rate hike to make up for lost premiums.
Discounts provided under Florida's hurricane hardening pro-
gram have proven so popular that the insurer is asking for relief.
On Tuesday, representatives of the Chicago-based insurance
giant explained their "logic" at a state rate hearing held in
Tallahassee.
As reported in The Miami Herald, State Farm projects that
more than 300,000 of its policyholders in Florida may qualify for
discounts this year out of the nearly 1 million policies it holds.
At Tuesday's hearing, State Farm also announced it was
dropping all or part of its coverage on 31,000 homeowners
when they come up for renewal. About half of those will be
offered extensions, but minus any wind coverage.
That means those property owners will be eligible for
Citizens Property Insurance Corp. windstorm coverage, which
is the state-sponsored insurer of last resort.
Those of us living here in the Keys know what a long and
constant battle Fair Insurance Rates in Monroe has waged try-
ing to make sure Citizens' rates and methodology are fair to all-
coastal areas.
So watching as State Farm, the largest private insurer doing
business in Florida, tries to weasel out of discounts for proper-
ty owners who reduce future claims is an outrage.
State Farm says the level of discounts were set by state regu-
lators without real data to support the value of such things as
impact-resistant windows versus hurricane shutters that meet
tough standards.
A company spokesman is quoted as saying, "we're fully sup-
portive of mitigation, but we want the discounts to be appropri-
ate."
So do we. And we apply that same standard to the hurricane
risk models that State Farm and others have employed to set up,
rates based on data that's not been vetted by state regulators or
even shared with industrywide groups.
It seems the private insurers consider such information pro-
prietary and have resisted every effort made by state insurance
regulators to go public.
Florida's Legislature passed laws last year that require insur-
ers to send policy holders detailed information explaining how
much they can reduce premiums for each mitigation upgrade.
Now, when that program is working, some insurers decide to
cancel policies, hike rates, or both once again putting
ratepayers in a no-win situation.

Get out of the car and get on the bus


EDITOR:
It is the in thing now to discuss and write
about going green, preserving the environment,
renewable energy sources, alternative fuels, etc.
Right here on U.S. 1 is one of the solutions to
saye gas and lessen air pollution.
Namely, it's the excellent wheelchair-accessi-
ble, Key West buses running from Key West to
Marathon, as well as the city of Key West now
using biodiesel buses.
Numerous cars on U.S. 1 have only one per-
son inside, the driver, and I wonder if he or she is
a commuter or just a casual shopper. Why not
take the bus and save the money and the environ-
ment? Granted that one has to walk, sometimes
quite a distance, to reach a bus stop outside of
Key West, and there are no bicycle racks or posts
to chain them to at the stops. However, the ride in
these very clean, spacious and air-conditioned
buses is always a pleasant experience.


No more parking fees in downtown Key West,
no driving hassle, no watching out for the other
guy. For shoppers and air travelers with light lug-
gage, the buses provide sturdy racks up front, as
well as racks for groceries, a cooler or a carry-on.
The bus drivers are without exception very help-
ful and polite. In all my rides since April 2000,
and then only in Key West, I have yet to
encounter a sullen or.rude one.
My compliments go to the Key West
Department of Transportation for providing such
a superb and inexpensive transport system. Leave
your car at home unless you really need:it,.and let
the bus do the driving.

Don't give developers a free ROGO ride


EDITOR:
I would like to challenge a recommendation
that Monroe County Mayor Di Gennaro is report-
ed to have sent to state Department of
Community Affairs Secretary Pelham regarding a
300-room hotel proposed for Stock Island.
To an ordinary citizen, the purpose of the rate-
of-growth ordinance is to regulate development.
The fear Mayor Di Gennaro expressed that the
developer would acquire 300 ROGO units from
affordable housing is not remedied by granting
this hotel development new ROGOs for free. If
there is a problem where developers purchase
permanent housing ROGOs for use in transient
lodging, then the solution would seem to be to
further regulate the use of permanent housing
ROGOs.
Granting 300 new ROGOs will only increase
the chances that permanent residents will be
forced to evacuate Monroe County at the same
time as tourists from this hotel when the inevitable

Fire chief did good job
EDITOR:
I like former Marathon Fire Chief Dale
Beaver. He has honor and integrity. No one is
perfect, no one. You can only work with the

As chief, Dale stood before us and admitted
the fire department's mistakes and shortcom-

5 percent of each year. If the developer wants to
recover the ROGO investment over 20 years and
has a 10 percent cost of capital, an additional
$6.61 per night room rate covers the $4 million

owners of super luxury yachts, who can easily
afford a less than 2 percent up charge for the room.
I am a full-time resident of Key West. I wel-

on granting exceptions to the rules put in place

that I have a reasonable chance to evacuate from
mile marker 1 to the mainland on short notice.
I urge Secretary Pelham not to grant free
ROGOs to this proposed development. I encour-
age DCA to continue to exercise oversight so that
any exceptions to laws promoting the safety of
Monroe County residents are necessary and well
justified.

City, School District make boating easier


EDITOR:
In a time when most people don't
have a lot of good things to say
about their elected and appointed
officials, I would like to bring to the
attention of all Marathon residents
the absolutely outstanding efforts and
persistence of C.J. Geotis.
Lack of parking at the city boat
ramp has been a long time problem
that would be increased by-the
rebuilding of the existing ramp.
Back in February, I contacted C.J.
with the idea of using the Stanley
Switlik Elementary School parking
lot on non-school days to park boat


trailers. He has doggedly pursued
everyone and anyone necessary in
the city and county until finally suc-
ceeding in bringing the city of
Marathon and the Monroe County
School Board together in a spirit of
cooperation to agree to allow us to
park on non-school days in part of
the school lot.
We should all give a big thank
you to Geotis for making Marathon a
better place to live. And thank you to
the School Board for looking after
the grown-up kids.

We can't drill our way out of oil dependence


EDITOR:
Nick Antonelli.'s recent letter about
global warming and oil drilling is
deeply disturbing.
Nick has lived in the Keys long
enough to know about the grievous
damage caused by drilling for oil in
the Gulf of Mexico. Concern about
that kind of damage moved even con-
servative politicians such as Gov.
Crist and Florida Attorney General
Bill McCollum'to object to potential
drilling in Florida waters. Both
Republicans are also spearheading the
drive in the state to reduce our energy
consumption and, thereby, greenhouse
gas emissions.
As Reef Relief points out, "the
Gulf loop current would carry toxic
drilling muds into the fragile breeding
and nursery grounds for shrimp and
lobster in the Florida Keys...."
Furthermore, the U.S. Energy
Department's Energy Information
Administration estimates it would
take until 2017 before any new off-
shore lease produces oil and many
more years before those leases
reached peak production. That time
horizon is far beyond anything on the
minds of traders or investors now.
Antonelli goes on to attack global
warming, pointing out that 100 scien-
tists have written the Intergovern-
mental Panel on Climate Change
about their objections. This is laugh-
able. More than 1,900 scientists have
affirmed that it is human action that
has created the spike in carbon diox-
ide gas in the atmosphere and that this
dome of C02 is changing our climate
in potentially disastrous ways.
Other "left wing" groups that
affirm the reality of global warming
include NASA's Goddard Institute of
Space Studies, the National Oceanic
and Atmospheric Administration, the
National Academy of Sciences, the
Environmental Protection Agency, the
Royal Society of the United
Kingdom, the American Geophysical
Union, the American Meteorological


Society, the National Center for
Atmospheric Research, and the
Canadian Meteorological and
Oceanographic Society.
Global warming is scientific fact.
Recently The New York Times edi-
torialized, "A nation that uses one-
quarter of the world's oil while pos-
sessing less than 3 percent of its
reserves cannot drill its way to happi-
ness at the pump, much less self-suf-
ficiency. The only plausible strategy
is to cut consumption while embark-
ing on a serious program of alterna-
tive fuels and energy sources."
The recent push to drill for more
oil completely misses the point. We
will run out of oil within the next 35
years and we'd better start planning ,
for that. We need to conserve what
we are using and start building an
alternate energy infrastructure now.
Doing anything else dooms future
generations to a nightmare scenario.

Praise the police
EDITOR:
This is in regards to the letter by
Mr. Davis concerning traffic enforce-
ment in the Aug. 1 Reporter.
Maybe he has never had a child
hit, crushed or mangled by a driver
out of control and, thank an officer,
neither have I. But whatever the rea-
son an officer stops someone, it is a
good one.
Maybe he or she is looking for a
fugitive, maybe another officer called
from a different location to say this
particular car was speeding or driving
carelessly. Maybe there was a report
of a missing child possibly heading
into or out of the Keys.
I am sure if he were hit by one of
these "fleeced" lawbreakers, he may
think differently. Here, here, to all of
our law enforcement team.

GPS gives off bad information


EDITOR:
I have visited the Keys annually since
1960 and during the last 10 years I have
owned a home and businesses in the
Marathon area. On July 30, the first day of
the two-day lobster mini-season, my fami-
ly and I went to our GPS numbers in the
Atlantic looking for bugs. Later in the
afternoon we went to the Long Key,
Bridge on the gulf side and caught more
lobster.
The Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission pulled us over
and checked our catch of 20 lobsters. The
officers were very professional and pleas-
ant.
At the end of the day, we ran to another
spot further north in the gulf. Within two
minutes of getting in the water without
'nets or tickle sticks, a National Park
SService ranger pulled alongside and asked


everyone to get out of the water. He did
not board our boat; instead he asked how
many lobster we had on board. He accused
us of being in Everglades National Park.
. We tried to get him to board our boat to
look at our GPS, which showed we were
outside of the boundary line. He argued
that according to his GPS, we were inside
the park perimeter. Consequently, he took
all of our lobsters and wrote a violation
ticket for possessing 20 lobsters in the
park. I can only imagine where our lob-
sters ended 'up.
Needless to say, we learned a valuable
lesson not to trust our GPS and to stay at
least a quarter of a mile from the boundary
line. Also, you can't argue with the law.
Visitors, be smarter than us. Don't let this
happen to you.

SForecasters keep

eyes on 2 systems


Storms gain
attention while
Keys get wet
Keynoter Staff

Hurricane forecasters on
Tuesday were watching two
large weather systems in the
Atlantic that could grow into
tropical depressions.
One system was centered
about 650 miles east of St. Lucia
and Dominica and was moving
northwest at 10 to" 15 mph. A
hurricane hunter airplane was
scheduled to fly into the clouds
and gather data.
Forecasters at the National
Hurricane Center said the system
has "high" potential more
than 50 percent to form into a
tropical cyclone, up from "medi-
um" potential 20 to 50 per-
cent on Monday.
They also were watching a
second system, in the Eastern
Atlantic, that has "medium"
potential to develop.
Meanwhile, rainfall in the
Keys so far this year is half of
what it was last year, but don't
tell that to wet Middle Keys res-
idents.
. Tuesday afternoon, .89 inches
of rain were measured at Florida
Keys Marathon Airport. Normal
for Aug. 12 is .15 inches.
The showers made driving
difficult but were welcomed by
those whose plants have been
browning because of a lack of
water.
There also were "some decent
showers" in Key Largo, though
numbers weren't immediately


available, says Dave Ross, a
meteorologist with the National
Weather Service in Key West.
Key West also got a little wet.
As of .2 a.m. Tuesday,
Marathon had 2.6 inches of rain
in August, which doesn't include
the .89 inches that fell in the
early afternoon. A normal
Middle Keys August through
Aug. 11 is 1.5 inches.
Since Jan. 1, Marathon'has
seen 12.05 inches of rain; histor-
ically, 22 inches would fall, so


Rainfall in the
Keys so far
-this year is
half of what it
was last year.

"we're a little under half," Ross
says.
This time last year, the
Middle Keys had 26.36 inches,
"so we were over for the year,"
Ross says.
As of 2 a.m. Tuesday in Key
West, 1.5 inches of rain had fall-
en this month; the normal is
1.68.
In Key West since Jan. 1,
10.63 inches of rain had fallen.
The norm is 20.65 inches. Last

Fires keep

crews busy


By KEVIN WADLOW
Senior Staff Writer
kwadlow@keynoter.com

Lightning strikes from a line
of thunderstorms that moved
through the Keys late Sunday and
early Monday sent fire depart-
ments scrambling.
Reports indicate damages
were slight.
A palm tree on Severino Drive
in Islamorada's Venetian Shores
subdivision was destroyed by
flames after a lightning strike
around 1:45 a.m. Monday.
Islamorada Fire-Rescue units
responded when the' tree burst
into flames but neighbors quickly
doused the fire with garden hous-
es, Islamorada Fire Chief
William Wagner said.
"It's the height of the rainy
season and the line of storms that
went through produced an above-
normal amount of lightning,"
Wagner said.
Units from Tavernier Fire-
Rescue responded to a call about a
lightning-caused fire on a boat at
Mangrove Marina but no fire was
found, Monroe County Fire.Capt.
Steve Zavalney said. "We checked
all the boats there," he said.
Other blazes
In a busy week for fire fight-


ers, six people escaped injury but
were displaced early Saturday
when a Key West home caught
fire.
City Fire, Marshal Michael
Davila said an electrical mal-
function in the attic at 2705
Flagler Ave. caused the 4:30 a.m.
blaze, which was contained to
the ceiling's eaves.
The concrete-block house
with a wooden roof sustained,
about $40,000 worth Of damage.
The estimated worth of contents
damaged was $1,500.
The American Red Cross is
providing food, clothing and
shelter for the victims.
Meanwhile, another fire
broke out at the Dion's Quik
Mart on Stock Island Sunday
night.
. When Monroe County
Sheriff's Office Deputy Vicki
Fleck and Sgt. Charlene
Sprinkle-Huff arrived on the
scene just before 9 p.m., employ-
ees and customers were still run-
ning out the front the store.
Damage was contained to the
outside of the store, which is just
north of the Cow Key Channel
bridge on the oceanside. The
county Fire Marshal's Office is
investigating the cause.

RFP goes out for Truman


By ALYSON CREAN

The city of Key West wants to
be shown the money by someone
willing to build and operate a
marina.
"The marina is the revenue-
generating function of the park,"
Port Director Raymond Archer
said, referring to the 33-acre
Truman Waterfront.

for proposals for a partner to
develop and manage a marina on
6.5 acres at the waterfront, at the
end of Southard Street. The idea
is to get money flowing into city
coffers, which are stretched lean.
"The approach we're taking is
to turn to the people who have the
knowledge. The way the RFP is
written, it will allow us to judge
proposals on multiple factors:
The best use of the property, how
does it fit and complement Key
West," Archer said.
Archer says the RFP was writ-
ten to leave the developer a lot of
leeway but there are some things
that won't happen big dry-
storage boat barns, private clubs
and boat-trailer storage areas
"The best idea is for the city to
put up the land," Mayor Morgan
McPhersofi says, "and a venture
capitalist puts up the cash and
they would manage it. We in turn
would share in the profit."
McPherson says the idea
should be appealing to investors,
especially because most believe
that if Cuba opens, the Keys will
benefit.
"The real opportunity is for
tomorrow," he said. "Right now,
we're running 12,000 people a
month [to southwest Florida]
withthe fast [catamarans] out of
the city ferry terminal [at the Key
West Bight.] When Cuba opens,
our fast cats will be out the roof."

It will be developed by an
entity chosen by the City Com-
mission. Land Trust members say
they will fund it through dona-
tions and federal and state funds.
"We're waiting for a survey so
we can get the appropriate site
description in our agreement for
the lease with the city," said
Norma Jean Sawyer-Atanda, exec-
utive director of the Land Trust.
Additionally, an assisted liv-
ing facility for senior citizens is
planned for 5.3 acres, 4 provided
by the city and the rest from Keys
Energy Services.
Plans call for it to be run pri-
vately, with no city taxes
involved, though the city would
still own the land underneath the
buildings. It would have 40
assisted-care units and 95 inde-
pendent-living units between
Southard and Angela streets for
seniors of varying income levels.
Sizes would vary from 400
square feet for an assisted-living
unit to 1,200 square feet for a
two-bedroom, two-bath inde-
pendent-living unit.
"We're still developing the
request for proposals and the
lease," said Sandy Higgs, co-
chairwoman of the Florida Keys
Assisted Living Care Coalition.
The U.S. Navy gave the
Truman Waterfront property to
the city in 1995 as part of the
Base Reuse and Closure Act.

Gulf council meeting in Keys


Aquaculture,
grouper quotas
on the agenda
By KEVIN WADLOW
Senior Staff Writer
kwadlow@keynoter.com

Fish farms and grouper limits
will be among issues heard by the
Gulf of Mexico Federal Fishery
Management Council at meetings
beginning'today in Key Largo.
After council committees
began meeting Monday, the full
17-member council opens its
August session at 3:30 p.m. today
at the Key Largo Hilton, mile
marker 97.
Most portions of the meetings,
running through Friday, are open
to the public. Council members
will hold a question-and-answer
session at.6 p.m. today.
Opponents of proposals to
allow floating fish farms in feder-
al Gulf waters plan to turn out for
the public-comment period when
the council meets at 8:30 a.m.
Thursday at the Hilton.
The offshore aquaculture pro-
posal is expected to be among the


Keynoter Staff

Recreational and commercial
fishermen continue to criticize
federal fishery management pro-
posals to close grouper fishing
for months at a time.
The last of three public com-
ment meetings on revised
grouper plans was held Tuesday
in South Carolina, but written
comments to the South-Atlantic
Fishery Management Council
will be accepted until Sept. 15.
Keys charter fishermen would
be seriously harmed by grouper
closures lasting several months,
Key West captain Andy Griffiths
wrote in a letter to the council.
"Banning all grouper for us in
the Keys does not accomplish
any goals of the council,"
Griffiths said. "It is draconian to
put a handful of people out of
business without a good result."
To protect a stock of gag
grouper that biologists say is
overfished, the council will con-


most contentious issues, along
with individual fishing quotas for
grouper fishermen.
Staff of the National Oceanic
and Atmospheric Administration
supports the aquaculture con-
cept.
"The U.S. has the choice to
become an important player in
offshore'aquaculture to help aug-
ment our wild fish products to
supply a growing domestic mar-
ket," NOAA chief Conrad
Lautenbacher said in an agency
statement. "If the U.S. chooses
not to become a player, we will
continue to import an increasing
amount of foreign aquacultured
products."
Opponents of the proposals
Say commercial operations in
open water could generate waste
pollution and possibly spread
disease from captive stock to
fish in the wild.
At a Key West comment hear-
ing in July, several local fisher-
men said they fear the fish farms
would create more no-access
marine areas and could harm the
existing seafood industry.


sider proposals to close most
fishing all for all types of grouper
for three to seven months a year.
"There .is no rationale for a
closure in the Florida Keys where
we do not catch gag grouper,"
Griffiths said.
Charter Capt. Bill Kelly said
Keys anglers endorsed a year-
round local closure on gag
grouper in exchange for not hav-
ing a closure on red grouper and
black grouper.
At a Cape Canaveral com-
ment session Friday, dozens of
commercial and recreational fish-
ermen told staff that high gas
prices are already reducing pres-
sure on gag grouper, according to
Florida Today.
The South Atlantic Council
will consider grouper rules at its
Sept. 15-19 meeting in
Charleston, S.C. For more infor-
mation, go to www.safmc.net.


Grouper limits.
The Gulf council also is consid-
ering individual quotas for grouper
catches.
Keys commercial fishermen
and the recreational Coastal Con-
servation Association both oppose
such quotas but for vastly different
reasons.
Commercial fishermen at a
Keys hearing last month said pro-
posed quota systems favor large-
scale harvesters over smaller oper-
ations.
Peter Bacle, owner of the Stock
Island Lobster Co., said the pro-
gram "threw up a red flag" for him
and appears to be "nothing but a
program for the elimination of
small-boat fisheries."


Lower Keys fishermen Bobby
Pillar and Billy Niles voiced simi-
lar concerns, saying Keys fisher-
mefi would be boxed out of the
quota because they do not catch
large numbers of a particular
species. Pillar called the program
"a terrible idea."
CCA Director Ted Forsgren
opposes the plan because the sport-
fishing group says it allocates too
much of the Gulf of Mexico catch
to the commercial sector, "locking
up an important natural resource in
a small number of individuals."
Members of the commercial
Gulf Fishermen's Association have
supported individual quotas as a
way to keep the fishing season
open for more of the year.

Europeans hot for Key West


Exchange rate,
other factors
raise the numbers
By MARGARET MENGE
mmenge@keynoter.com

"I'll be damned," said Carrie
Babich, marketing director of the
Southernmost Hotel Collection
after running a report off the
company's computer system. The
number of Europeans checking
into the company's four hotels,
she'd found, is up 92 percent over
last year for the first three months
of the summer, May-July.
Babich says she was surprised
by the size of the increase, but not
surprised they have more
European guests. The company,
she says, saw the trend a couple
of years. ago and started advertis-
ing overseas. "We're just saturat-
ing the European market is what
we're doing," she says. "We're
going after it."
The Southernmost Hotel
Collection owns four Key West
hotels: the Southernmost Hotel,
Southernmost on the Beach, the
La Mer Hotel, and the Dewey
House. They're now working to
get their Web site on European
search engines, and translating
their Web site into different lan-
guages.
August is the biggest month
for European travelers, as many
have a full four weeks off of
work. And Friday was one of the
busiest days of the summer for
the Key West Information Center,
a storefront on the corner of
Truman Avenue and Eisenhower
Drive that books hotel rooms and
trips for tourists who stop in. "I
would say 70 percent of the peo-
ple coming in the door were
Europeans," said manager
Debbie Peters. Friday in mid-
August last year there were a lot
less, she told the Keynoter. "If 50
percent were Europeans I'd be
surprised," she said.
Peters, who's worked for the
company for 10 years, says she's
noticed that there are more
Italians coming in this summer,
and that there are more larger
groups of European tourists -
two sets of couples with their kids
and extended families, with
grandparents traveling with mom
and dad and kids. Most of the
Euroveans she books into hotels

Howard Wheeler, director of

hard numbers on how many
Europeans are coming into Key
West ("You can't tag 'em and

as anything. As everyone knows,
the United States is now nice and
cheap for European visitors.
Babich says that the two hotels
where they have the most
Europeans staying are
Southernmost Hotel Collection's
pricier hotels the La Mer
Hotel and the Dewey House,
where rooms this month start at
$250 and go up to about $400.
This summer, there seem to be
fewer Germans in Key West,
according to a number of people
in the hospitality industry. And a
lot more British.
The Southernmost Hotel
Collection's computer system
showed that in 2007, there were
only three people from the United
Kingdom checking into the com-
pany's four hotels in May, June
and July: This year there were 60.
There are also, according to
reports, more Dutch, Swiss,
Italians, Hungarians, and French.
Mike O'Connor, manager of
Subtropic. Dive Center on
Truman Avenue, says he was sur-
prised to see two half-naked
French girls lying on the concrete
next to his store, sunning them-
selves practically on the side of
the road and "straight across from
the police station."
There were also .French on
Duval Street on Saturday night,
mixing in with the pub-crawling
Americans. Two slim young
French m'en in polo shirts hung
on the window of a crepe seller at
about 10 p.m., and began holler-
ing out to people on the sidewalk
at one point to help drum up busi-
ness for their compatriot. On
Sunday morning a group of four


teenage girls in dresses dismount-
ed their bikes at Sandy's caf6 on
White Street at about 11 a.m.,
speaking French to one another.
They ordered sandwiches to go
before getting back on bikes and
floating away again, as if down
an avenue in Paris, peddling
slowly.
On Monday, a family from the
U.K. was emerging from the

Initial plans call for old Florida architectural style


L.ODGE / From 15

Sportfishing groups, which
frequent Flamingo for the rich
backcountry water and .have
pushed to rebuild the hotel, also
could be tapped along with
environmental groups.
- Although the federal budget
is tight, Jill Horwitz, a senior
program coordinator for the





.
a cl P


National Parks Conservation
Association, said there is one
promising source of funding.
Legislation, not yet approved
by Congress, would provide up
to $100 million in matching
funds for projects nationwide in
a program intended to mark the
2016 centennial of the federal
park system.
"Our vision for the new
Flamingo is a smaller footprint
with greener, sustainable build-
ings and more family-friendly
activities," Horwitz said.
The rebuilding blueprint
wouldn't exactly make
Flamingo a five-star resort. In
fact, park rules require afford-
able prices with "eco-tents"


expected to go for about $60 a
night and cottages from $125 to
$150. But it would add to visi-
tor options and, most hdpe,
attract more of them.
Park attendance has fallen
markedly since the lodge closed
in 2005, to fewer than 1 million
visitors, a drop that Herling said
has had ripple effects in south
Miami-Dade County.
Although less than half-
filled in the summer when heat
and mosquitoes can become
overwhelming, it was usually
booked during the winter -
often with visitors from Asia
and Europe.
For now, the plan calls for
Flamingo's looks to go back to


its past with designs evoking
cracker-style structures that
once dotted the area. From. the
late 1800s until the park opened
in 1947, Flamingo was a small
village populated largely by
fishermen, moonshiners and
plume hunters.
The look may be authentic,
but it also calls for expanding
bikeways and walkways, and
adding more showers and bath-
rooms and more canoe and
kayak rentals.
A leaky swimming pool the
lodge filled in many years ago
would be replaced. A restaurant,
also closed since 2005, would
be reopened in the new lodge.
Eight houseboats, available for
rental trips, would replace ones
sunk and damaged. during the
2005 storms.
In addition to solar panels,
there are other greener ideas -
recycled material for walkways,
low-level lighting to enhance
star-gazing, and electrical
hookups for 40 trailers or motor
homes, eliminating the need,
and noise, of generators.
The lodge and cottages, at
nearly $9 million, are the most
expensive projects. It would be
cheaper and faster to put in
semi-permanent eco-tents, esti-
mated at $1.8 million, first, and

some private companies have
already approached the park
with design ideas, Herling said.
While Flamingo's visitor
center and abandoned gas sta-
tion are. considered historically
significant structures that will
be preserved, park managers
don't have the same feelings
about the two-story hotel,
which opened in 1959.
And although many
Flamingo fans want to see some
sort of hotel rebuilt there soon,
no one has mounted a campaign
to save the old run-down lodge.
"You could only get one
channel on the TV, and the o
walls were covered with splat-
tered mosquito guts," said
Hiram Vasquez, a Miami angler
who has fished out of Flamingo
for years. "But I loved it
because it had beds and AC. I
haven't been able to get my
wife down here once since they'
closed it."

The fall sports season opened
Monday at Coral Shores High
School, as more than 40 players
showed up for the Hurricane
football preseason.
"We're very happy with the
turnout," said Jeff Meyers,
returning as interim head coach.
"There could be 50 by time
school starts."
About a dozen veteran players
expected to be on the varsity ros-
ter were on excused academic
trips or traveling with family on
Monday's first day of practice,
Meyers said.
Coral Shores head coach Todd
Gideon was seriously injured in
-an all-terrain vehicle crash while
visiting family in Ohio Aug. 2.
He is expected to return to the
Upper Keys soon but it remains
uncertain when he will resume
teaching and coaching.
Meyers was head football
coach at Coral Shores for seven
years before stepping down after
the 2005 season.
Defensive coaches Blake Fry
and D.J. Miller return, joined by
new defensive backfield coach
Kelly Clark.
The Hurricanes may return
most of the defense from a squad
that went 3-7 overall in 2007.

Conchs start the drills


'Little things'

By DICK WAGNER
Keynoter Contributor

The first day of practice "sets
the tempo," Key West High
School football coach Jerry
Hughes said in his office
Monday afternoon,, ,but the


tempo wasn't shaping up to his
satisfaction.
"Kids today, so irresponsible
it's unbelievable," said Hughes,
62, upset because too many
team members had failed to turn
in completed insurance and
physical-exam paperwork.
Just then, a player appeared
at the door and said, "I -don't
have my insurance papers. It
slipped my mind."


"OK, see you," Hughes
replied. "You can't practice
today."
He wore the same
"Touchdown Club of Key West"
T-shirt he had worn 10 years ago
when he last coached the
Conchs and led them to the
playoffs.
Just before 4, he walked into

paperwork awaited.
"It's a damn shame," he told
them. "We can't practice today
because some of your teammates
aren't here .because they can't
take care of the little things.
Those are the kind of guys
'%do're going to jump offside
when we're running a play for the
district championship. The little
things can turn into big things."
But after conferring with his
assistants, Hughes decided to
practice. Only 20 players, wear-
ing shorts, jerseys and red hel-
mets, took the field behind the
school.
Longtime assistant coach
Danhy Jiminez taught blocking
techniques to the linemen.


Assistant John Grimesey fed
scuffed balls into a machine that
shot them at the receivers. "Catch
it and tuck it, guys," he implored.
A handful of people watched,
including athletic director Peter
Fraga, new trainer Kristy
Huenefeld and Eddie Castro, who
was watching his grandson, tight
end J.P. Malott.
Terminology "Yellow!
Right! 5! 32! Weak!" carried
in the stifling August air. Hughes
worked with quarterbacks
Stephen Jones and newcomer
Justin Sweeney. They threw spi-
rals that long-armed receiver
Phillip Young hauled in.
Cicadas buzzed in the man-
groves. The first game (with
Miami Beach) was less than three
weeks away. The tempo was

BY RYAN McCARTHY
rmccarthy@keynoter.com

The only guarantee is there
are no guarantees with this
year's Marathon High School
volleyball team, new coach
Jess Snook Simonds says.
Simonds replaces Kevin
Freeman, who will take over
the Dolphin golf team after
five seasons as volleyball
coach.
"There's no guarantees
who's starting," Simonds said.
"We're not basing anything on
last year; this is a new year."
The Dolphins struggled to a


3-14 record last season and
must replace Marathon Alexis
Culver, Yari Alpizar, Mandy
Ibsen and Jessica Brier, all of
whom graduated. Culver
earned a volleyball scholarship
to Division I Lake Sumter
Community College in Central
Florida.
The Dolphins started strong
by winning the annual presea-
son Keys Classic tournament
over rivals Coral Shores High
School and Key West High
School..But their only two reg-
ular-season victories came over
the Conchs.
Simonds says she and assis-


tant coach Kelly Eigner expect
only that the team will improve
as the season progresses.
"Seeing that Kelly has
coached these girls, she
expects us to be over .500," she
said. "I want to have fun, and
winning is fun. But if they're
working their hardest I'll be
happy."
Simonds said full varsity
and junior varsity rosters have
come out to practice, with one


more tryout scheduled. She's
been working all the girls out
together, emphasizing passing
and serving skills in the early
going.
"Right now we're looking
on conditioning and building
up their strength. We've been
*working out for one full week
and Kelly and I ... have seen
improvement," Simonds said.
Among the key players
returning from last year's team:


Jeannette Betancourt, Sarah
Melia, Shelby Kuck, Kelley
Struyf and Ashley Hooper.
The Dolphins will have there
hands full facing the likes of
Miami Christian School,
Westminster Christian School
and Palmer Trinity School in a
talented district. Palmer ended
Marathon's season last year,
overwhelming the Dolphins in
three straight district tourrn "
ment games.

season.
One of the players who has
been around the longest is junior
quarterback Nyran Ross. Martin
said the team will turn to him a
leader this fall.
"He's been around the system
since he was in fourth grade and
he knows more than anyone out
there except me," he said.


Martin also praised the lead-
ership skills of senior lineman
David Huntt and said older play-
ers have helped the younger kids
make tremendous strides over
the summer.
The Dolphins open their reg-
ular season with a visit to Keys
rival Key West High School
Sept. 5 at 8 p.m. The Dolphins
defeated the Conchs in their sea-
son opener last year in
Marathon, 25-14.

Saltwater angler


the Saltwater An!


Murphy finally
finds real niche
following Maynard

In less than two decades, the
Saltwater Angler in Key West has
become a must stop for shallow-
water fishermen in the Lower
Keys.
The fly fishing specialty, shop
originally opened by Jeffrey
Cardenas, who took living on the
water to a new level with his clas-
sic book "Marquesas, the
Saltwater Angler," has seen its
share of change over the years.
Tony Murphy is opening the next
exciting chapter in this book.
Murphy has just taken over
the Saltwater Angler from good
friend Dave Maynard. Maynard
was a past charter client of
Murphy and Murphy has always
relished their friendship.
"A few months back, I
received a call from Dave. After a
few pleasantries, he said, 'Why
don't you take over the shop?'"
Murphy says. "I said that you
have to be crazy. Dave made a
very compelling argument and it
started to make sense to me."
Now, Murphy is right on track
to where he wants to be in life at
.age 42.
Murphy, of English descent,
likes to have fun with his her-
itage. Case in point is his 31-foot
Contender, aptly named Key
Limev, which he docks at Murray


Cal Sutphin


and-drive specials


Marine on
Stoc k
Island.
A self-
admitted
city boy,
Murphy
made his
first visit to
Florida
some 20
years ago.
P a-n
Am was
having
these fly-
where they


throw in a rental car with the
flight. I flew to Orlando and just
drove everywhere," he says. "I
had never even heard of the Keys.
In geography class in England, all
of the maps of Florida don't even
include the Keys."
"I fell in love immediately,"
Murphy says.
His uncle taught him to fish at
age 4 and becoming a fisherman
in the Keys was.a dream.
"Carl Reece, who was com-
mercial fishing for yellowtail at
the time, gave me a shot. Man, he
really had yellowtailing down. I
really enjoyed those days and feel
that some of the best guides here
in Key West had their start the
same way," Murphy says.
"After a while, everyone was
getting better at yellowtailing and
it became increasing harder to go
out and produce. That is when
becoming a guide became the

natural move."
Asked how the other captains
accepted him, Murphy says, "It
was harder to break into commer-
cial fishing than recreational.. I
mean, everyone was either born
here or Cuban, and then here
comes this limey along."
"I started doing pretty good as
a guide. I really like reef fishing
and my clients responded really
well to me," Murphy says.
Things continued well and
then one day four years ago, he
received a phone call from"
Summerland Key resident Jose
Wejebe, host of ESPN2's "The
Spanish Fly."
"Jose and I have been friends
for years and he called me about
doing this show called 'Madfin.'
I've been asked a lot to do TV
shows, but there's never any
money in it. You have to pay for
the gas and the time and it's
always right in the middle of the
busy season," Murphy says.
"Jose said, 'Let's get together
for lunch.' Well, me, Jose, Kenny
Harris, Rush Maltz, Steven
Impallomeni and Rob Fordyce all
met at the Rusty Anchor [on
Stock Island] and basically came
up with the rules for the Madfin."
"The Madfin Shark Series"
went on to be the second highest
rated outdoor show to air on tele-
vision. And Murphy, who admits
that guys like Fordyce and Harris
have forgotten more about shark

Keys Fishing


Wednesday, August 13, 2008 21


Perhaps the fishing will get as hot as the air


The best bet
continues to be
hitting the reef
It's mid-August and things are
heating up.
I wish by heating up I mean
it's all the great fishing going on,
but I'm only referring to the
weather.
It's hot. Working on the sur-
face all day is tough to do. So it's
a great time to mix the fishing
with some lobster diving, if for
nothing else just to cool off a bit.
Diving conditions are excel-
lent now and all reports "I've
received were very good con-
cerning the number and size of
lobster available during the
opening days of the eight-month
recreational season, which start-
ed Aug. 6.
What you find often while
diving are schools of fish you


C i' wouldn't
Column know were
there unless
you actual-
ly saw
them. This
gives you
.- opportuni-
s. ties to drop
a line and
catch some
Sa nice dinner,
particularly
S snapper
Dave Navarro that are too
skittish to
be a good target with a spear.
This is why I always advise peo-
ple to have some small amount of
bait along in the boat while div-
ing. This makes you ready for
any opportunity that presents
itself.
That's one thing about fishing
in Florida Bay in the summer
months. I have noticed over the
years that on the perfect flat calm


days when it is as hot as Hades,
fishing is relatively to dead slow,
yet when there is a wind of 12
knots or more blowing, action
picks up dramatically.
This bodes well for anglers in
smaller boats that don't want to
get beat to death offshore or on the
reef when winds are upward of 20
knots. That kind of wind on the
reef will give you 5-foot-plus
seas; in most areas of the bay, you
are looking at about 19 inches
tops. It's quite a difference; even
if your mind doesn't recognize it,
your back and internal organs
will.,
The fishing on the reef contin-
ues to be the best bet overall, with
a variety of snappers still eating it
up. Even though we are coming
up on a brighter moon, the activ-
ity seems to still be quite active.
Daytime has been good but nig-ht
fishing is by far best for the fish
to be biting. Yellowtail, muttons
and numerous grouper are avail-


able.
, Mangrove snapper have been
so plentiful that keeping track of
your limit has been the only chal-
lenge. Live bait such as pinfish is
best but squid, ballyhoo, glass
minnows and silversides are also
great. Actually, the silversides
are the best things going now, as
they are getting eaten up regular-
ly. Sardines and thread herring
have also been good bets for the
larger fish with large whole bait
like these. Take plenty of good
chum for best results.
Area channels have main-
tained their variety, including tar-
pon. Permit are also being found
at slack tide in many of these
channels as well as on local flats.
I've been somewhat amazed as
to the number of nice fish around
these channels the past few days;
there have been some very nice
snapper reported, along with sev-
eral fine grouper. It seems there
is always something going on


along these transition points
between the bay and the ocean.
Speaking of the ocean, well,
there haven't really been too
many banner reports lately.
There has been the occasional
big fish here and there and some
nice catches but overall, it hMs
been only fair. What has been on
the hit list this week has been
tuna.
Some really nice fish and
quite a few of them have been
found scattered from 250 feet out
to past the hump. And more have
been found away from the tradi-
tional location of the hump in
fast-moving schools feeding top-
side. Some are upward of 30
pounds. Small black and red
feathers are by far the best for
.taking these fish.

Watch those traps

fishing than he even knows, best-
ed the field of seven others all
three years of the tournament.
"Shark fishing for me had
always been an afterthought. If a
client wanted to fish for sharks, I
would fish for other species until
the last hour of the day, then go
tackle a shark inshore some-
where," Murphy says. Asked
how he" explains his success, he


replied, "I just understand fish-
ing."
So TV, tournament suc-
cess and now a shop of his own.
Charmed life? No. Murphy
believes it's how he handles
himself.
"Even more so in the com-
mercial fishing world, when we
are all at the dock and selling
fish, everyone is so nice to each
other. Then when they leave,
man, the backstabbing that goes
on. I wasn't raised like that," he


says.
With all he's learned, Murphy
looks forward to the move to the
Saltwater Angler, which is based
at the Key West Westin.
"The summertime fishing
here can be brutal. Every day is
very little air movement and
very hot. You really feel it at the
end of the day when cleaning
fish. I'm. looking forward to
spending a little more time at the
shop and not as much on the
water."

already hit the waters, so use
caution in navigation. The first
week or so the traps are in, most
of the ropes on them tend to
float until they soak up and set-
tle down. Knowing the direc-
tion of the current will do won-
ders in keeping you from hav-
ing to stop and remove a trap
line from your prop (the lobster-
men will also be grateful).


When passing a trap, go on
the down current side of the
buoy itself, as the line leading to
the trap will be trailing off up
current of the buoy. This will
allow you safe passage and
keep the trap marked for the
fishermen.
