Fickle Fao, Iases Keys


Island quiet as
Conchs wait for
tourists' return
By MARGARET MANGE
mmenge@keynoter.com

A small sign hung above the
bar at Sloppy Joe's, taped to the
wooden propeller, above the cat
statue with the glowing green
eyes "Fay blows," it read.
"That sums up how I feel
about the whole thing," said Fred
Goldberg, the bartender at the
Duval Street bar in Key West.
Tropical Storm Fay was a
fickle storm, not quite sure of her
direction or of what she wanted
to be. She never got herself
organized enough to be promoted
to a hurricane and so never came
close to reaching her potential.
Fay arrived in Key West on
Monday just after a 10:30 a.m.
media briefing in front of the La
Concha Hotel on Duval. The
county administrator, county
mayor and mayor of Key West

Fay evacuees
step in, help out
at storm shelter
By KEVIN WADLOW
Senior Staff Writer
kwadlow@keynoter.com

The oldest Boy Scout troop in
Minnesota wrote a new chapter
Sunday, forced to flee the Keys in
the approach of Tropical Storm
Fay.
After the Boy Scouts' Florida
Sea Base adventure camp on


Lower Matecumbe Key closed,
the 11 Minnesota .Scouts from
Troop 283 and four adult troop
leaders spent Sunday night in
Monroe County's mainland shel-
ter.
And when special-needs
patients from the Keys arrived at
the shelter at Florida
International University, the
Scouts pitched in to help carry
luggage and medical supplies up
to the second floor.

3 commission
hopefuls look to
oust incumbents
By ALYSON CREAN
acrean@keynoter.com

Depending on what
Republican voters do next week,
Monroe County residents could
see a very different County
Commission come the fall.
Three seats are up for grabs,
and all three have Republican


candidates facing off in the
Aug. 26. The winners go on to
the Nov. 4 general election.
County staff is trying to find
ways to pare back what could
be an 18 percent increase in
property taxes in fiscal year
2009, and money is at the top
of the candidates' issues list.

Who was the wettest?


Middle Keys
received 5.5
inches of rain
By ALYSON CREAN
acrean@keynoter.com


When the heavens were done
opening up Tuesday, it was the
Middle Keys that ended up see-
ing the worst of Tropical Storm
Fay.
Marathon received 5.5 inches
of rain during the 24-hour period
that started at 8 a.m. Monday.
According to Dave Ross, a mete-
orologist intern at the National
Weather Service in Key West,
Marathon felt the worst of the
wind, as well, with gusts up to 55
mph and sustained winds of 36
mph.
Throughout the Keys, the rain
and wind measurements were:
Key Largo, 1.75 inches of
"rain, wind gusts of 40 mph, sus-
tained winds of 27 mph.
Islamorada, 3.26 inches of
rain, gusts of 51 mph, sustained
winds of 30 mph.
Key West, 2.53 inches of
rain, wind gusts of 51 mph, sus-
tained winds of 38 mph.
Duck Key received 4.2
inches of rain and Tavernier saw
3.3 inches. However, weather
watchers reporting from both
sites didn't have final numbers on-
wind measurements, said Ross.
There were two unconfirmed


reports of tornadoes Monday, one
on Big Coppitt and the other on
Big Pine Key.
Aside from the remaining
puddles, one would barely know
that Fay came through. Tuesday,
businesses were up and running
and local governments were get-
ting back to work.
"Flexibility is the key,"
Monroe County Administrator
Roman Gastesi said. "Since
things are looking good, we're
able to reopen the airports early.
Initially, we said they would open
Wednesday. But nothing is etched
in stone."
Flights resumed at noon
Tuesday at Key West Inter-
national Airport and Florida Keys
Marathon Airport.
The county and circuit courts
reopen today. Those who had
court dates Monday and Tuesday
should call court administrators
to reschedule their appearances.
The city of Key West opened
its doors Tuesday at noon,
Marathon reopened Tuesday and
Monroe County employees also
went back to work. Islamorada
offices are expected to open
today.
The County Commission con-
venes at 9 a.m. today at the
Marathon Government Center.
That meant a quick transforma-
tion from an emergency opera-
tions center to a meeting space.
"The EOC is still activated


until we complete damage assess-
ments," Gastesi said Tuesday
*afternoon. "We're going to have
to break it down fast."
Schools open this morning,
giving students a two-day delay
to the first day of the new term,
which should have begun
Monday.
"We had some broken shrub-
bery and a little cleanup to do,"
School District Superintendent
Randy Acevedo said, "but there
were no problems.".
Bus service countywide is also
back on track today.
Tuesday afternoon, county
transportation drivers were pick-
ing up the county's special-needs
patients, Community Services
Director Deb Barsell said.
County buses took 14 people
to the county's official hurricane
shelter at Florida International
University. Eight others were
taken to mainland nursing homes.
The county's own residence
for seniors, Bayshore Manor on
Stock Island, remained open.
"As long as the hospitals
remain open, the residents don't
need to be evacuated," Barsell
said.
All three Keys hospitals
remained open during the storm.
Monroe County Sheriff's
Office spokeswoman Becky
Herrin said one injury was attrib-
uted to Fay. A Marathon man was
injured while doing last-minute
storm preparation on his roof.

Fay just a small blow


FAY / From 1

were giving interviews to televi-
sion crews when the rain began
blowing hard.
- By 1 p.m., winds were wailing
through cracks in windows and
rain was pounding the island.
Monroe County officials sent out
a notice at 12:55 p.m. warning
people to stay inside and off the
roads. But almost as soon as it
began, it ended.
By about 3 p.m., the rain
stopped. altogether, the winds qui-
eted, and the bars flung their
doors open and turned up the
music.
In the Middle Keys, the wicked
weather lasted longer, but in Key
West, it was time to come out.
Fay was here just long enough
for the owner of the Truman
Avenue strip club Bare Assets to
take an hour break. Mike Blatt
closed up the liquor store next to
Bare Assets around 2:45 p.m. on
Monday, and came back at about
4. Business was good, he said:
Everyone was stocking up. The
adjoining strip club didn't open
Monday night.
"That's driven by the girls,"
he told the Keynoter. "It's party
time for them, too ... but don't
quote me on that. I don't want the
girls to think they've got us over
a barrel," he said.
Blatt says he thinks authorities
overshot in telling visitors to
evacuate the Keys. "It was a
thunderstorm on the south side of
Cuba," he said. "How could it
possibly become a Category 1 ?"
A lot of locals were glad to
have a Fay-enforced vacation.
"We don't a chance to be
off together much and we were
off together, so we made the best
of it," said Joni Brand, doing
laundry with her husband, Perry,
mid-day Tuesday. She says they
stayed at their home on Eagle
Avenue on Monday, made ribs
and watched the weather on TV.
Tim King, owner of Sunny's
Deli on Truman Avenue, closed
at 1 p.m. Monday.
"It was so bad out there. The
rain was coming in sideways," he
told the Keynoter. He opened late
Tuesday and business, he said,
was slow. He speculated that res-
idents had stocked up on food
and were now enjoying their own
supplies rather than ordering out.
He says he lost $700 to $800
worth of business Monday
because of Fay, and was looking
at the same nn Tuesday.

Traffic heads north Sunday after the visitor evacuation was
called. Tropical Storm Fay turned out to be mere bluster
causing little damage.


A number of businesses in
Key West were slow to open back
up on Tuesday.
Employees at the
Southernmost Beach Cafe at the
end of Duval had just raked the
small beach on Tuesday after-
noon and were working on get-
ting the open-air dining room
back in working order. They
weren't reopening for business
until today.
Tourist information booths on
Duval were still shuttered, and
some art galleries and stores were
still boarded up. It was probably
just as well; there weren't many
tourists left in town.
"It's not bad that they left,"
said Coral Tarracino, long-time
bartender at Big 'Uns Sports Bar
on Duval. She says she agreed
with Key West Mayor Morgan
McPherson that tourists had to be
evacuated.
"It's just, what if it was worse
than we thought?" she said. "You
have to do it. You gotta look at
peoples' safety."
Two cruise ships that were
scheduled to dock in Key West
Tuesday were re-routed because
of the storm. But cruise passen-
gers are back on Thursday, when
Royal Caribbean's Majestic
docks at Pier B.

After leaving the Florida Sea Base camp, Scouts Matthew Frank, Tyler Welch and Weston
Birnbaum were among a contingent from Minnesota's Troop 283 that took shelter at Monroe
County's mainland evacuation site during Tropical Storm Fay.

Keys. They were attended by
Monroe County Fire Rescue
staff, said shelter director Ted
Cudnick, a Red Cross volunteer
from Tavernier.
Aside from the medical
patients, the Minnesota Scouts
were the only Keys evacuees at
the shelter by mid-day Monday.
The Scouts made six scuba
dives from Sea Base before
being told by camp staff that the
camp had to close before Fay's
arrival.
"They were busy buttoning
up Sea Base and securing the
boats," Kellum said. "They told
us 5,000 groups had been
through the base since the last
time they had to close for a
storm, but unfortunately we were
5,001."
The Scouts missed three
scheduled dives but will receive
credit for future visits. They also
will receive a special "storm
badge," considered a Scout col-
lectible.
"Now we can say we've been
through a hurricane," grinned
Scout Weston Birmbaum, tucked
into his sleeping bag on the floor
of the FIU center's gym.
"This is our space," Cudnick
said, gesturing to the empty
expanse of the gym. "It's not
much to look at."
But with plenty of room,
locker-room facilities and a din-
ing area for meals, the FIU recre-
ation center makes an excellent
short-term shelter, he said.
"We could probably handle
3,000 or 4,000 people if we had
to," Cudnick said.


Most of the local Red Cross
shelter volunteers stayed in the
Keys this week to staff local
emergency shelters, he said.
"Our Red Cross volunteers
are out there doing something
every day," Cudnick said. "It just
doesn't show up in the paper."
County Fire Rescue staff
"does a whale of a job" with the
severely ill or infirm patients
they evacuated, Cudnick said.
"They deserve a lot of recogni-
tion."
In the most recent Keys evac-
uation before Fay, 21 special-
needs patients were housed at the
FIU shelter.
With no one else in the gym,
the Scouts burned off energy
playing basketball and throwing
a football. Portable DVD play-
ers, MP3 players and video
games saw plenty of use.
Scout Drew Kellum celebrat-
ed his 15th birthday at the shelter
Monday. A small ice-cream cake
was brought in for the occasion.
"We've been treated excep-
tionally well," said his dad Brent,
the scoutmaster. "They've been
feeding us well, and these boys
can eat. We had a Cuban dinner,
which was great. We have like
one Cuban restaurant in
Minnesota."
Even though they had to leave
Sea Base early, the Scouts had no
regrets about their Keys sojourn.
"Except for getting stuck [in
Sunday's slow evacuation traf-
fic], it's been a wonderful experi-
ence," Kellum said. "The diving
is a lot better in the Keys than in
Minnesota."

Three seek to oust incumbents in the GOP primary


ELECTION / From 1

the bitter battle of four years ago,
though the players are the same.
The campaigns of two-term
incumbent Dixie Spehar and
challenger Kim Wigington traded
accusations of mail tampering
and sign destruction in 2004. This
year, the women are sticking to
the issues.
Spehar points to her record,
and although she has been
accused of voting in synch with
Commissioner Sonny McCoy
and Mayor Mario Di Gennaro,
she says she's an independent
thinker.
In the fall, she called for the
firing of then-County Adminis-
trator Tom Willi, but she voted to
keep him when the issue came up
earlier, in February 2007. Willi's
management style was blamed
for running down the county's
financial reserves to the tune of


$10 million.
Wigington says the focus of
her campaign is twofold.
"The first is the budget and the
fact that the county's money has
been misspent," she told the
Keynoter. "That goes hand in
hand with the lack of public trust.
Though people say it in different
ways, they are very angry over
their county being spent into a
financial hole."
Like Spehar, Wigington puts
some of the blame for the finan-
cial crisis on Willi.
"We grew too much in a short
period of time when the unincor-
porated part of the county was
shrinking," she said. "There was
no long-term planning."

District 3
Incumbent Sonny McCoy has
served two four-year terms, and
the 80-year-old says he has some
projects he wants to see finished
before he retires, the biggest


being the new terminal at Key
West International Airport.
It's going to be named the
, McCoy Terminal Complex.
He also says he's played a
major role in convincing the state
Legislature to help finance sewer
construction in the Keys.
"I've got to finish these things,"
he said. "If I'm not there, I have
concerns of their floundering."
But McCoy's tenure has not
been without controversy, includ-
ing several accusations of violat-
ing open-government laws.
Challenger Carlos Rojas, who's
running for office for the first time,
says he wants to see transparent,
government, something he says
has been missing lately.
"I don't think my opponent
has done a good job," said Rojas,
40. "I want to bring integrity and
honesty to a commission that
works in. the sunshine and
respects not just the letter of the
law, but the spirit."


District 5
Incumbent Sylvia Murphy has
served two years, filling out the
term of Murray Nelson, who died
in April 2006. Then-Gov. Jeb
Bush appointed Glenn Patton to
fill in until the 2006 election,
when Murphy beat Patton.
Murphy says there are a lot of
things she wants to accomplish,
especially crafting a tighter budg-
et and installing sewers.
Her primary accomplish-
ments, she says, are "the things
I've stopped from happening.
I've prevented a lot of bad ideas
from showing up on the agenda."
"We have two main issues, the
budget and wastewater," she said.
"Those are the only two things
we should even be spending our
time and money on. Some of the
things showing up on our agen-
das are absolutely foolish, like
hotels at the airports and at Safe
Harbor."


Murphy's opponent, Gary
Bauman, was elected to the Key
Largo Wastewater Treatment
District board twice. He says vot-
ers don't need to compare the
candidates issue by issue.
"I think if you know my phi-
losophy and you know my oppo-
nent's, then. you know how I'm
going to vote and you know how
she's going to vote."
That philosophy is simple, he
said. When times are tough, the
county needs to cut expenses.
"We shouldn't even be talking
about raising taxes," he says. "We
should be talking about where to
cut. When the economy goes bad,
everybody needs to cut back.
Households cut back, govern-
ment needs to cut back. Raising
taxes is the easy way to balance
the budget. It takes no research,
no hard work."

candidates, go to www.keys

Keys Opinion


Evacuation order

emptied Keys early

If state emergency management wondered at the effective-
ness of evacuation orders, they got an answer with Tropical
Storm Fay.
Saturday, Monroe County Emergency Management Director
Irene Toner, after consulting with the sheriff, county adminis-
trator and others, ordered a mandatory evacuation of visitors in
the Florida Keys.
This, while Fay was still a tropical storm moving off Haiti.
Visitors to the Keys were told to leave starting at 8 a.m.
Sunday. And they did. Thousands of them, producing a logjam
on U.S. 1 estimated at up to four hours and counting.
Monday morning's St. Petersburg Times lead story: "Fay's
Next Stop: FLA," with a front-page photo showing a clot of
cars evacuating the Keys.
Monday, with Pinellas County now under a hurricane warn-
ing (more serious than tropical storm warning), there was no
evacuation order for Pinellas or any of the southwest Florida
coastal counties.
This, despite one Tampa-bay forecaster describing Fay as
"the biggest threat since Charley" (the August 2004 hurricane
that slammed into Charlotte County and destroyed 31,000
homes).
Checking Charlotte County's EOC site Monday afternoon -
no mandatory evacuation order, even with the threat, of
"Hurricane" Fay less than 24 hours away; Collier County, a
"voluntary evacuation" suggested for residents in low-lying
areas (no mention of visitors); Lee County, nada; Hillsborough
County (Tampa), ditto.
Watching Miami TV going ga-ga over "Hurricane" Fay cov-
erage from the Keys, we were struck by the strong visual
images being piped around the globe Sunday, hour after hour:
Stacks of autos creeping over Keys bridges.
Backups at mile marker 100 in Key Largo.
Perplexed looks on faces of French and German tourists in
Florida City after being ordered to leave Key West.
It all adds up to quite a lesson.
Key West Mayor Morgan McPherson tried to undo some
damage by talking to Miami TV reporters, who always set up
outside the La Concha hotel on Duval Street.
Advising anyone watching to hold onto their reservations, the
mayor said Key West would be back up and running by noon
Tuesday, urging visitors to come on back.
Too late. The damage was already done. A weekend
onslaught on cable and network TV, bumping even the
Olympics to secondary play, will be tough to forget.
So here's a post-Fay question: What would it take to order a
mandatory evacuation in Collier, Lee, Charlotte, Sarasota and
Hillsborough counties?

Consolidate all Monroe County fire departments


EDITOR:
I am heartened by the list of very qualified
individuals who have applied for the county fire
chief position I held. I am not in a position to
endorse any one candidate, but I know several of
them, some personally. I am happy that County
Administrator Roman Gastesi and the County
Commission have such a field from which to
make a selection and encourage them to make the
right one.
What really has me excited, and to a degree sad
that my battle with cancer has prevented me from
being involved at this point, is the fact that there is
a long-overdue wind blowing in the Keys to con-
solidate fire and rescue services. Elected officials
in Marathon and Islamorada appear warm to the
idea of a merger. I heartily encourage this line of
thinking. But I ask, why think so narrowly?
This is the time to create a countywide Monroe
County Fire Rescue Department, to include service
to all of the Florida Keys, with the possible excep-
tion of the long-established city of Key West and
its fire department. But be open to their inclusion.
If Keys taxpayers want to establish true sav-
ings through economy of scale, it will best be
realized through a countywide service. A single
fire chief, a single administrative staff, a single


apparatus maintenance and purchasing system, a
single medical director, a single pay structure for
career firefighters, a single reimbursement pro-
gram for volunteer members, and very important-
ly, a single set of operating and training standards
that will provide a cohesive level of service
throughout the Keys.
This will require courage. First, it will require
all residents of the Keys to overcome geographi-
cally induced insular (narrow, turf-oriented) think-
ing to form a countywide taxing structure to sup-
port a countywide fire rescue service. It also will
require the County Commission to realize that
public safety is a core service of county govern-
ment, that it is not a service they should walk
away from through incorporations or proliferation
of service-fracturing independent fire districts.
Realizing this, perhaps they will gather the
courage to ignore the pressure from turf-oriented
local volunteer fire chiefs who fear the loss of
autonomy and gold trumpets on their uniforms at
the expense of a well-coordinated and trained vol-
unteer and career fire rescue service.
Now is the opportunity for the Keys to make
the right choice.

In Georgia, Russians have larger ambitions


EDITOR:
If asked today, most Americans would be hard
pressed to locate the independent nation of Georgia
on the world map. But this small nation, under
attack and occupation from Russian troops, is a
glimpse into the configuration of world politics.
Vladimir Putin, former Russian president, is
now the prime minister. His handpicked replace-
ment as president, Dmitri Medvedev, is a tempo-
rary stand-in until the next choreographed elec-
tion. Putin, a former KGB officer and George
Bush's "friend," has adopted the strategy of his
Soviet predecessors.
Every Soviet invasion was conducted on a pre-
text. The occupation of the Baltic states, Eastern
Europe and Afghanistan were done on pretexts that
Russia was invited in by "friendly" governments,
and Soviet citizens needed protection. This same
strategy is currently being played out in Georgia.
The regions within Georgia, South Ossetia and
Abkhazia, are pretexts, pawns in a larger Russian
ambition.
In 1991 and 1992, Russia aided separatists in
Abkhazia in their efforts to ethnically cleanse
Georgians from that region. For the past five
years, Russia has bestowed passports and citizen-
ship upon South Ossetians, who have no ethnic
ties to Russia.
There is no benevolent motive in Russian
intervention in Georgia. It is purely imperial
ambition, a desire to reassert itself on the world
stage and recapture lost territory, power and pres-
tige. They are utilizing independence sentiment in
those regions for their own political ends.
Georgia borders both the Black and Caspian
seas. It is a major conduit of oil and natural gas
that passes from Azerbaijan, through Georgia, to
Turkey. The Baku-Tbilisi-Ceyha pipeline has
tremendous strategic value in the control of ener-


gy resources. Gazprom, the state-owned Russian
energy unit, is already one of the world's largest
energy conglomerates. Control of the BTC would
significantly increase Russian political power and
their ability to dictate energy supplies to the West.
The unfortunate ramification of our misguided
involvement in Iraq now prevents us from exer-
cising any credible opposition to Putin's totalitari-
an ambitions. Russia holds veto power in the
United Nations Security Council, and can turn off
the oil/natural gas spigot to Europe at will. Our
president, George Bush, has been played for a
chump. While Mr. Bush was having his picture
taken with our Olympic athletes in Beijing, his
friend Vladimir was giving the go-ahead on a pre-
meditated invasion of a sovereign, democratic
ally of the United States.

County Commission needs new blood, restored trust


On Aug. 26's primary election ballot,
registered Republicans have the widest
choices, choosing among six candi-
dates vying for three County
Commission seats, two running for
sheriff and two vying for the District 1
Mosquito Control Board seat.
Democrats will also choose between
two District 1 Mosquito Control Board
candidates, and all registered voters
get to cast ballots for the School Board
District 3 seat and the Group 4 Circuit
Court seat.
Today, we offer our recommenda-
tions in the County Commission pri-
maries and for the School Board.
Saturday's Keynoter will have our rec-
ommendations for sheriff, Mosquito
Control and the Key Largo Wastewater
Treatment District Board.

County Commission
District 1
Two-term incum-
bent Dixie Spehar is
being challenged for
Sthe second time by
Kim Wigington, who
describes herself as a
"full-time student of
county government."
WIGINGTON The winner faces
Democrat Bill Estes
in November.
When first elected in 2000, Spehar
had big shoes to fill after she defeated
the incumbent Wilhelmina Harvey,
considered the grand dame of politics,
after serving as- Harvey's administra-
tive assistant.
Early in her tenure, Spehar embraced
the pressing issue of health insurance
for all Monroe County residents and
sought ways to create a countywide
insurance pool for the uninsured and
under-insured. We're not sure why that
noble and needed proposal fell
off the radar, but it did.
The past four years, Spehar has been
seen as a pro-development commis-
sioner in an anti-development county.
Too often, she seems locked in with
two others of the same mindset, Sonny
McCoy and Mario Di Gennaro. Critics
label them the Gang of Three.
Spehar also spearheaded the coun-
ty's acquisition of a Stock Island
restaurant, the Hickory House, pre-
sumably to preserve the site as public
waterfront access. That ill-fated deci-
sion was a failure, and now the county
is in the middle of due diligence with a
developer to sell the property at a


loss.
Wigington is running on a platform
of restoring the public's trust in the
County Commission. Such restoration
is sorely needed with so many pressing
issues, among them county budget
shortfalls and a state deadline to con-
struct sewers less than a year away.
Wigington says the current County
Commission is reactionary rather than
visionary, trying to put out fires it cre-
ates rather than not starting fires in the
first place. She calls for long-term
planning in all aspects of county gov-
ernment.
The Stock Island resident also says
the public is often ignored when it
comes to decision-making. She calls it
an "outrageous assault on democracy
by a dangerous voting bloc...." While
that might be a little overboard, we
agree that the majority bloc often
seems more interested in maintaining
power than serving the public at large.
Spehar deserves the public's thanks
for eight years of service, but it's time
forchange. Entrenched commissioners
can lose sight of the forest for the trees,
and it's apparent that has happened to
Spehar.
In the Aug. 26 GOP primary, we
endorse Kim Wigington.

County Commission
District 3
This race pits one of
the longest-serving
politicians in the
Keys, Sonny McCoy,
against newcomer
Carlos Rojas. Both
are architects, but
that's where the simi-
larities end.
ROJAS McCoy, a two-term
county commissioner and previously a
five-term Key West mayor, knows the
Keys in and out. But in recent years it's
become apparent he's out of touch
with the public and, frankly, his own
past service.
In his latest stint as county mayor, he
showed arrogance to the deputy coun-
ty administrator and the county attor-
ney, often shouting orders at them and
cutting them off mid-speech much the
way a schoolyard bully would shout
down smaller students. He did the
same when residents went to the podi-
um to air their views on issues coming
before the commission.


McCoy also has been accused
numerous times of violating the state's
Sunshine Law governing open govern-
ment by conferring with other com-
missioners in private before public
debate and votes take place. He's not
been convicted, but it's apparent he
has lost his passion for true public dis-
course.
Perhaps most serious, the commis-
sioner remains under a cloud of suspi-
cion for alleged sexual harassment of a
former aide. The Equal Employment
Opportunity Commission found that
aide likely was harassed but didn't
pursue the matter, so she sued, and the
litigation is pending.
This is Rojas' first foray into politics,
and he is running on that simple plat-
form as an outsider. He claims no
political ties, but in campaign forums
has committed to keeping the Keys an
Area of Critical State Concern.
Rojas, like Wigington, says the
County Commission as now constitut-
ed cannot be trusted to make the right
decisions for the public at large. He
says the Gang of Three needs to be
broken up by new blood on the com-
mission.
We agree, and endorse Carlos Rojas
in the Aug. 26 primary.

County Commission
District 5
In the District 5
County Commission
S race, Republican vot-
ers have two good
Choices and lots of
history to help make
up their minds.
Gary Bauman, a
businessman with a
MURPHY strong financial
background, who currently serves as
chairman of the Key Largo
Wastewater Treatment District Board
is running against District 5 incumbent
Sylvia Murphy. -
Bauman knows plenty about waste-
water and that's certainly a valued
commodity countywide with voters
staring at something like $500 million-
plus in uncompleted sewver projects.
Murphy is finishing her first two
years as commissioner, having, won an
election against Glenn Patton to fill the
unexpired term of the late Murray
Nelson.
The winner of this GOP primary will
face nonaffiliated candidate Sal
Gutierrez on the November ballot.


With more than 25 years as an emer-
gency medical tech with Monroe
County Fire Rescue, Murphy has a
long history in government service and
connections that reach far beyond her
Key Largo base.
Sometimes very blunt, some might
say too blunt, she's a refreshing and
candid voice on the five-member
board and we'd like to see her face off
with Gutierrez in November.

School Board District 3
All registered vot-
ers can cast ballots in
this. race because
School Board candi-

san.
But one candidate
in this race, Matt
MATHEWSON Cochran, seems not
to be running at all.
The Big Pine Key resident qualified to
be' on the ballot, but has been a phan'-
tom candidate, not appearing at forums
and refusing to respond to media
requests for'interviews. We would like
to tell you his views and why he's run-
ning, but we can't because he won't
share them.
Incumbent Duncan Mathewson, fin-
ishinig out his first four-year term, has
shown himself to be a smart board
member whose main focus is student
achievement, which is how it should be.
For School Board District 3, we rec-
ommend Duncan Mathewson.




Judicial race

to be decided

All registered voters can vote Aug.
26 for a new Group 4 Monroe County
Circuit Court judge to replace Sandra
Ta lor, who is retiring.
The candidates are Key Largo attor-
ney Richard Behr, Assistant Monroe
County State Attorney Manny
Madruga, Key West attorney Jiulio
Margall, Key West attorney Tegan
Slaton and Monroe County Court
Administrator Mary Vanden Brook.
:Taylor is the chief judge and han-
dles most of the county's Family Court
caseload. However, those duties don't
necessarily go with the seat.
Circuit Court judges earn $145,080
annually and serve six years.

Few problems reported with electric utilities


By KEVIN WADLOW
Senior Staff Writer
kwadlow @keynoter.comrn


Tropical Storm Fay gave local
utility crews "a nice little test,"
says the Florida Keys Electric
Cooperative's chief executive.
About 4,000 Monroe County
residents may have lost power at
some time during the storm
Monday but the outages were
generally short, according to offi-
cials of Monroe County's electric
utilities.
All power was reported as
restored by Monday evening.
"The lulls between Fay's rain
bands were nice and long," said
Julio Barroso, spokesman for
Keys Energy Services in Key
West. "Our crews were able to get
out in the middle of the storm and
get folks back on line."
Winds .that peaked from 50
mph to just over 60 mph through-
out the tropical storm caused very
few direct problems for the
power systems.
"Without the tree issue, there
would have been very few out-
ages," co-op Chief Executive
Scott Newberry said. "We veri-
fied that 85 percent of our out-
ages during Fay were related to
trees. We suspect at least another
10 percent were caused by trees."
Newberry explained, "People
plant palm trees under power
lines, or near them. When the
wind comes along, the fronds


stick straight out. They touch the
lines, then pop!"
The situation was similar in
the Lower Keys, Barroso said.
"Limbs get caught in the line and
cause it to circuit out."
"The system was able to
weather a tropical storm without
losing power for any length of
time because [Keys Energy]
made sure the system was in tip-
top shape," he said. "There was
extensive tree-trimming and a lot
of preventative maintenance."
Poles were strengthened and
connections checked, he said.
"It's a general hardening of the
system. If .this storm happened
seven or eight years ago, outages
most likely would have been
more extended."
Keys Energy said its outages
likely affected about 3,000 cus-
tomers at some point between
Monday morning and late after-
noon. "Not at the same time,"
Barroso said.
The co-op, covering the
Middle and Upper Keys, counted
50 separate outages affecting a
combined 887 customers,
Newberry said.
"The largest outage was in the
Upper Keys, affecting 187 mem-
bers at one time," he said.
The utility was able to send
most of its road crews home by 7
p.m. Monday. Four linemen were
kept on call for evening reports.

City turns away FKAA


U.S. Water
to operate
sewer plant
By RYAN McCARTHY
rmccarthy@keynoter.com

The Marathon City Council
has passed on a last-minute offer
from the Florida Keys Aqueduct
Authority and awarded a contract
to U.S. Water to operate the Little
Venice sewer plant for the next
year.
"We felt ... if there was an
opportunity for the City Council
to provide the best deal for the
residents, we should look at it.
It's not our business model to
compete for low-bid contracts,
but our hub is here in Marathon
and will remain here," Aqueduct
Authority Executive Director Jim
Reynolds said.
On Aug. 12, council members
left the door open for the future,
but said the Aqueduct Authority
was slow in responding to the
city's request that it bid to operate
the plant. Marathon's sewer sys-
tem will have seven areas, each
with an individual treatment
plant.
The Aqueduct Authority
already operates Little Venice but
will transfer ownership to the city
Oct. 1.
City Finance Director Peter
Rosasco told the council the main


hang-up with the Aqueduct
Authority is control. The utility is
the designated sewer authority
for unincorporated Monroe
County except for Key Largo.
"They're saying they don't
need to build them, but they very
much want to control what goes
on. The biggest thing is rates;
they need to have the rate-making
authority," Rosasco said.
"The Aqueduct has been slow
to respond and slow to turn over
ownership of the Little Venice
plant. We have to pretty much
stand our ground in moving for-
ward with this contract or we
won't be able to take over Little
Venice in time," Councilman
Mike Cinque said, referring to a
city schedule to finish sewering
just six months after a state-man-
dated July 1,2010, deadline.
Councilwoman Marilyn
Tempest also emphasized the


city's time frame and said waiting
on the Aqueduct Authority any
longer will delay the city's plans.
"I don't think we should give
up talking with the Aqueduct. It's
a one-year deal to operate Little
Venice and we have a whole lot
going on in the next few years,"
Tempest said.
But Councilman Don Vasil
said the council rushed its deci-
sion because the city is much
closer to completing sewers than
other Keys entities. Vasil has
been a proponent of working with
the Aqueduct Authority because
it has a pool of licensed sewer
plant operators.
"I'm pleased the philosophy
has changed and they're willing
to work with us," Vasil said. "The'
county is at a standstill and does-
n't even have the money for engi-
neering."
Vasil was the lone dissenter in
a 4-1 vote to award the contract to
U.S. Water.

Get ready for the skeeters


After a storm,
mosquitoes hatch
ready to bite
By RYAN McCARTHY
rmccarthy@keynoter.com

At least one group of Keys
residents was thrilled to see
Tropical Storm Fay passing
through our islands mosqui-
toes.
Flooded areas in the wake of
a storm provide fertile breeding
grounds for-the insects.
"Mosquitoes lay their eggs in
sand, and somehow know areas
that will flood. They can lay dor-
mant for years and the minute
they get water on them, it begins
the cycle of hatching out,"
Florida Keys Mosquito Control
District Board Chairman
Stephen Smith said.
He said the most important
thing for residents can do post-
Fay is check their homes for
standing water.
"Rain filling up paint cans or
buckets, tarps covering any fur-
niture or boats. Dump the water
off of them and call us if you
know of any issues with vacant
houses next door," he said.
"When people aren't there, we
have to make sure we're looking
out for that."
In the meantime, Smith. says


the district has mapped out his-
torically flood-prone areas and
will treat them with larvicide via
helicopter over the next few
days. The larvicide has naturally
occurring bacteria that prevents
larva from maturing into adult
mosquitoes. Mosquito eggs can
hatch within 24 hours of flood-
ing. -
Should problems arise with
adult mosquitoes, Smith said the
district is capable of treating all
of Key West by plane in about
20 minutes.
The Monroe County Health
Department advises residents to
follow the "five Ds," which are:
Avoid being outdoors during the
dusk and dawn hours that mos-
quitoes are most active, dress in
clothes covering most of your
skin, use DEET-based insect
repellants and make sure your
home had proper drainage.
The Health Department also
offers the following advice to
homeowners on the lookout for
potential breeding sites on their
property:
Clean out eaves, troughs
and gutters.
Remove old tires or drill
holes in those used in play-
grounds to drain.
Turn over or remove empty
plastic pots.
Pick up all beverage con-


tainers and cups.
Pump out bilges on boats.
Replace water in birdbaths
and pet or other animal feeding
dishes at least once a week.
Change water in plant trays
at least once a week.
Remove vegetation or
obstructions in drainage ditches
preventing water flow.

mosquito-borne illnesses, visit

the spring after 28 years in law
enforcement, faces Phil
Mandina, who lists a 30-year
career in law and law enforce-
ment. This is Mandina's fourth
run for sheriff in Monroe
County.
"I've run before, and the
issues have always been the
budget and wasteful spending,"
Mandina said. In past cam-
paigns, he's criticized Sheriff
Rick Roth for spending money
on aircraft and new technology
without keeping deputies'
salaries competitive.
"Deputies have to have their
salaries equal or above that of the
Key West Police Department,"
Mandina said. "To make the
money available to do that, we
could sell the sheriff's helicopter.
That would be a big help."
"What we've got now in the
Sheriff's Office is a top-heavy
administration," Davis said,
"where upper administrators
have enjoyed a 300 percent pay
raise since 1993. Deputies have
seen only a 40 percent pay raise
over that same time period."
Davis is critical of his oppo-
nent, saying Mandina "speaks in
generalities; I speak in
specifics."
Davis' solution for paring
back the department's $40 mil-
lion-plus annual budget offers
specifics on salaries, the fleet,

Realtors endorse
2008 candidates

The Marathon and Lower
Keys Association of Realtors has
met with candidates seeking
office this election season and
issued its recommendations.
In a prepared statement, the
trade group said candidates
"found to identify strongly with
those issues important to our
industry" are:
+ County Commission: Dixie
Spehar, Heather Carruthers and
Gary Bauman.
+ School Board: Duncan
Mathewson.
+ Schools superintendent:
Fred Colvard.

take-home vehicles and more.
"The first thing you have to
do, which is why I'm not popular
with the lieutenants and up, is to
freeze their pay until the dispari-
ty is closed," Davis said.
His career started in the U.S.
Coast Guard. He's worked in the
Drug Enforcement Administra-
tion and is a liaison to the Joint
Interagency Task Force South, a
multi-agency organization in
Key West that focuses on drug
smuggling.
Mandina, an attorney, has 30
years of law enforcement experi-
ence ranging frort teaching to
his most recent position, as a
reserve lieutenant for the Opa
Locka and Sebring police depart-
ments.
The candidates are miles
apart in their opinion on a possi-
ble citizen review board for the
Sheriff's Office. Such a board
would act like the one in Key
West, considering citizen com-
plaints against deputies "to see if
they are valid.
"A citizen's review board just
shows that the sheriff has failed,"
Davis said. "It shows a loss of trust
and respect in the community."
Mandina disagrees.
"In opposing a CRB, what are
they hiding?" Mandina said. "I
am a strong proponent of it. I
started one for the city of Miami
and it worked out great."
"I'm not against a CRB,"
Davis said. "I'm against the need
for one."
He said that in his view, a
well-run Sheriff's Office with a
strong and separate Internal
Affairs Division provides the
same checks and balances with-
out giving the community a
sense of failure.
Key West struggled through
the creation of its own review
board, but since its inception the
board has provided residents a
means of airing complaints about
the department.
Both candidates agree the
Sheriff's Office needs to find a
way to recruit and retain top-
notch deputies.
"One way to immediately
help keep our deputies without
raising the budget," Davis said,
is to offer a housing allowance.
"We have 40 deputies that live in
Miami-Dade County. We need
an incentive to get them to live in
this community.

3 hope to unseat Mosquito Control's Lord-Papy


Four on ballot
in the primary
next Tuesday
By ALYSON CREAN
acrean@keynoter.com

Four candidates face off in the
Aug. 26 primary for the District 1
seat on the Florida Keys
Mosquito Control Board, making
this one of the most crowded
races for the seat in recent mem-
ory.
Two Democrats, 16-year
incumbent Joan Lord-Papy and
Chris Zuelch, face off to deter-
mine who will oppose Pat
Unferth or Andy Williams in
November. Those two go head to
head in the GOP primary.
Lord-Papy has held the seat
for 16 years.
"We've come a long way from
a time when we didn't even have
an entomologist. Fve kept my
promise to the people and we've
become one of the most efficient
mosquito control organizations in
the world, not just the nation,"
she said.
While he's a political new-
comer, Zuelch does have a touch
of politics in his blood his
father Kirk Zuelch served as
Monroe County elected state
attorney.
"There needs to be some fiscal
conservatism on that board," said
Zuelch, an accountant. "There

gets 10 years

Ramon Barrabi-Puentes, con-
victed Feb. 1 of smuggling ille-

tenced to 10 years in federal
prison.
Senior U.S. District Court
Judge James Lawrence King sen-
tenced Barrabi-Puentes in Key
West, where a jury convicted
him. It was highest possible sen-
tence authorized by law for his
involvement in a smuggling con-
spiracy, details of which were not

Attorney's Office in Miami.
King also ordered the forfei-

needs to be an immediate freeze
on capital expenditures. We need
to get away from empire building
and give back to the taxpayers."
Lord-Papy says the Mosquito
Control District has been able to
extend its aerial spraying to some
out islands off Big Pine over the
past year under an agreement
with the Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission. She
says residents are pleased with
the results.
"They're not getting the
swarms they usually get," she
said.
Lord-Papy defends the dis-
trict's new $7.4 million building
and hangar in Marathon, saying it
was needed. Others see it as gov-
ernment excess.
"We budgeted that over seven
years so that when it was com-
pleted, it was paid for," Lord-
Papy said. .
She adds that the proposed
$11 million Mosquito Control
budget for 2009 is 7 percent
lower than the current year.
On the Republican side,
Williams is taking his second
shot at the seat; he ran against


Lord-Papy in 2004. As he did in
his last campaign, Williams advo-
cates adding what he calls "a
third dimension" to mosquito
control bringing in dragonflies
to deal with larvae in areas where
the organization cannot spray due
to bans on pesticides.


Like Zuelch, Unferth, a sys-
tems analyst before moving to the
Keys, also focuses on costs in
Mosquito Control budgets.
"I believe some of the costs
can be cut," she said, "and I
believe there's room for improve-
ment."


Unferth, who works for a law
firm, says she'd also like to see a
stronger public education thrust
to the organization, even taking
the program into the classroom.

Bull signs on to sewer post


Key Largo-based
foundation helps
find the money
By RYAN McCARTHY
rmccarthy@keynoter.com

Chris Bull is taking his experi-
ence in wastewater issues to the
private sector as the executive


director of the Florida Keys
Wastewater Assistance
Foundation.
The private foundation was
formed in April 2007 to secure
sewer funding and lower the
overall cost of sewering the Keys,
in particular the cost of private
lateral hook-ups for low-income
residents.


y 1 Susan
Hammaker, a
member of the
Key Largo
( Wastewater
,, Treatment
District board,
founded the
Florida Keys-
pBULL Wastewater
Assistance
Foundation. The organization will
finance its activities, including
offering low-interest loans to
those who cannot afford the sewer
charges, through a combination of
donations and public grants.
Bull, the former mayor and
current vice mayor of Marathon,
chose not to seek reelection to a
third consecutive City Council
term in November, but said he
wanted to stay involved in what
has been an important project.
He's made numerous- trips to
Washington, D.C., and
Tallahassee representing the


Keys' wastewater interests.
Bull said he planned to turn to
the foundation for help as a
council member but was recruit-
ed when he announced he would
not run.
. "We have a large task ahead of
us, but I feel I'll help the founda-
tion hit the ground running," Bull
said.
Bull took the job early to seek
resolutions of support from the
various Keys sewer entities, as
well as contributions in the fiscal
year 2009 budgets.
"My first day was actually last
Wednesday. I was going to wait
until after November, but they
need to get some things into the


budgets and it's a lot easier to do
it now than after the fact," he
said.
Bull said lowering the cost for
lower-income residents is key to
securing state grant money.
"All the wastewater entities
have to provide some means to
lessen the burden," Bull said.
"Over 33 percent of homeowners
cannot afford the lateral cost
because it would be more than 10
percent of their annual income."

foundation, send an e-mail to

Bridge repairs DOA


By RYAN McCARTHY
rmccarthy@keynoter.com


With a court reporter front
and center, the Marathon City
Council decided to get rid of the
Boot Key Bridge, likely setting
up a lawsuit against the city.
While plans to purchase Boot
Key from private landowners
and turn it into an eco-preserve
tourist attraction have cooled, the
council seems to agree on one
thing the city won't repair the
bridge leading to it.
"It's very apparent we're not
going to spend $8 million to fix

that bridge," Councilman Mike
Cinque said.
The council approved a
motion Aug. 12 to find the most
cost-effective way of removing
the draw portion of the bridge.
The decision to remove the span
will likely lead to a lawsuit by
one of the island's three parcel
owners.
Keys Radio Group owner Joe
Nascone, who owns 9.57 acres
of land on Boot Key, has threat-
ened the city with a lawsuit if it
doesn't repair the bridge.
"It's time we take a step for-
ward; we closed this bridge eight
months ago now," Council-
woman Marilyn Tempest said.
The bridge is in disrepair and
has been closed to all traffic,
even pedestrians, since
December.
On April 29, the council
approved a plan to purchase the
island from its three owners
based on an appraisal by
Waronker & Rosen Inc. The
appraisal valued Boot Key at
$3.4 million with bridge access
and $1.47 million without.
But City Attorney Jimmy
Morales told the council Aug. 12
that Barry Yampol, who owns 99
percent (1,006.11 acres) of the
privately owned land on Boot
Key, has no interest in selling.
The council also discussed
ordering a second appraisal as a
legal defense to permanently
closing the bridge. The council
approved a motion in June to
seek proposals but has yet to
award a contract.

Grassroots group

windstorm redo
By KAREN QUIST

Local insurers say there's no
need to panic about the
announcement that Citizens
Property Insurance Corp. will
require wind-only policyholders
in Monroe County to reapply for
coverage. But Heather
Carruthers, a member of Fair
Insurance Rates of Monroe, says
FIRM is concerned about addi-
tional costs some homeowners
will face.


"They tell you not to worry
about it until 60 days," she says,
"but for those who need to get a
roof inspection or sign a contract
for a new roof, that might not be
enough time."
Citizens started sending letters
out last week to policyholders,
forewarning that windstorm-only
policies will be discontinued. A
spokesman with the insurer
stresses that policies are not being
cancelled Citizens just needs
homeowners to reapply because
they are switching to a new com-

Cell phones and paradise


Making the
connection when
things get wet
By DICK CONKLIN
Keys Sunday contributor

During the recent lobster
mini-season, many Keys busi-
nesses enjoyed a booming busi-
ness, and cell phone stores were
no exception.
"Every year we gear up for the
mini season, ordering extra
phones to replace the ones that
fall overboard," says Mike


McDaniel, manager of
Marathon's PDC Wireless store.
"We had a continuous stream of
people coming in to buy phones,
and we ran out again."
Some customers have insur-
ance, while others have to cough
up the cost of a new phone,
although many manufacturers
offer mail-in rebates to offset the
replacement expense.
"Hurricanes are another busy
time for us," McDaniel says.
"People are so busy making
preparations for an approaching
storm that they forget their

expected to be more cost-effi-
cient and result in easier to under-
stand policies. It has separate
forms for single-family homes,
condominiums and mobile
homes, unlike the current form
that includes all types.
But as Citizens starts the
process of writing new policies
for its more than 300,000 wind-
only customers on both coasts, it
is requiring that coverage accu-
rately reflect replacement cost -


the cost to rebuild the home in
case of total loss.
That figure runs at least $200
a square foot in the Keys, says
Bob Regan, president of the
Regan Insurance Agency in
Plantation Key. So while rates
won't go up, homeowners whose
windstorm policies don't reflect
that reality now will likely face
higher premiums in the future.
While Citizens won't accept
"policy applications until within
60 days of expiration, policy-
holders may want to start review-
ing their coverage earlier.


The insurer is requiring that
owners of older homes prove that
the roof has either been replaced
within 25 years for shingles or 50
years for other materials or has at
least three years of life left. For
those who cannot show proof of
roof replacement either by a
receipt or another form such as a
permit, an inspection would suf-
fice, said John Kuczwanski of
Citizens. Homeowners whose
roofs don't pass either of those
tests can still renew if they show
proof they plan to replace the
roof, he told the Keynoter. .

Motorola i355
No sweat, man
Liz Trotman is the manager of
the Sun Communications store
on Toppino Drive in Key West.


She says that much of the cell
phone moisture damage she sees
doesn't come from rain, seawater
or humidity.
"We see phones all the time
that have been corroded by
sweat. People working outside all
day sweat a lot and it can get
inside a phone."
Trotman likes the Motorola
i580, which has a rubberized
coating inside that keeps mois-
ture from getting to the main cir-
cuit board where corrosion can
occur.
"We don't see many returns of
that phone," she says.
She says the Motorola i355
(a.k.a. "The Brick") is another
popular "weatherproofed" phone,
designed for people working in
field services, construction, trans-
portation, government and mili-
tary jobs. It conforms to Military
Standard 810F, which covers
conditions that include blowing
rain, humidity, salt fog, dust,
shock, vibration, temperature
extremes, low pressure and solar
radiation.
Fishing and phones
Local fishermen say that an
ounce of prevention is worth a
pound of cure. C.J. Goetis is
Marathon's deputy city manager
and an avid fisherman.
"I had a guy on my boat the
other day, and he said, 'One of
my rules is not to have cell
phones on my boat when I'm
fishing.' Just then, his cell phone
rang and he said, "I'd better take
this one."
"As for me, when I'm trolling
and I don't know where to start, I
head offshore and when my cell
phone beeps and displays 'no
service' I put the lines out and
eniov the rest of the day."

Shelter from the storm


Fay brings out dozens seeking safety

Call it a good practice run.
Liveaboard boaters, mobile-
home residents and the homeless
were taking no chances Monday
as Tropical Storm Fay bore
down, staking out space at the
Key West High School cafeteria.
Teresa Hanke and her daugh-
ter Jaylene were sharing break-
fast over their Coleman cooler
Monday morning after a night
on the cafeteria floor.
"We live on a boat at
Garrison Bight," Hanke said.
"We spent all day [Sunday] lash-
ing everything down."
The women were expecting
another night on the cold hard
floor but said they were grateful
for a dry place to sleep.
"We've lived at Garrison
Bight for about a year," Jaylene
Hanke said, "so this is our first
experience with a possible hurri-
cane."
The Keys have four shelters
for Category I or 2 hurricanes.
Category 1 storms bear winds
ranging from 74 mph to 95 mph;
a Category 2 ranges between 96


mph and 110 mph. Anything
higher usually precipitates a
mandatory evacuation and
moves to the Keys' shelter at
Florida International University.
Key West High, Sugarloaf
School, Stanley Switlik
Elementary School in Marathon
and Coral Shores High School in
the Upper Keys opened Sunday
in anticipation of Fay's arrival.
Becky Herrin, spokeswoman
for the Monroe County Sheriff's
Office, says there were three
people each at Switlik and Coral
Shores Monday morning. Four
people spent Sunday night at
Sugarloaf and 38 slept at Key
West High.
Additionally, 14 special-

FlU, as was a troop of Boy

what he called a comfortable
night Sunday, and had space
blocked out for another night on
the cafeteria floor when he
spoke with the Keynoter
Monday.
Moody says that besides the
shelter, Key West has better
prospects for his future -,


including job opportunities and a
soup kitchen.
One reason more people were
in the Key West shelter than the
others was that the Keys
Overnight Temporary Shelter at
the Monroe County Detention
Center on Stock Island closed
for the storm.
That shelter for the homeless
comprises World War II Quonset
huts made of heavy canvas


stretched over metal framework,
not the safest place to stay when
a storm threatens.
Residents who choose to take
advantage of shelters are respon-
sible for their own comfort, from
blankets and pillows to food and
any necessary medication. But
for the homeless, it's not just a
matter of taking your own fluffy
quilt off your bed to cushion
against the floor.
"It is a problem," said Rev.
Stephen Braddock, executive
director of the Florida Keys
Outreach Coalition, a nonprofit
that provides services for the
homeless and oversees the shel-
ter at the jail.
"We've made all of our assets
available to the city," he said.
"We have a large supply of mat-
tresses and a large supply of
blankets, which [city officials]
can use if they decide to trans-
port them."
By Monday afternoon,
Braddock said he had a truck-
load of blankets on the way to
Key West High School.
Rather than serving as shel-
ters, Keys schools were sup-
posed to be filled with kids
Monday, the scheduled first day
of the new school year.
"We're planning now to start
classes on Wednesday," School
District Superintendent Randy
Acevedo told the Keynoter
Monday. "The first thing we
want to do, once the storm has
passed, is go to the campuses
and see they're safe and that any
debris has been cleaned up."
Though the School District
provides the space, the county
manages the shelters. "

With the Sept. 4 regular-

The Conchs would just as

local squad that played tourna-

Homestead.
"They'd make that three-
hour trip," Joyce said. "Darren
and his family were very com-
mitted. We were happy to have
him."
The Miller family moved to
Tampa about three years ago.


Miller called Joyce on the'
day that Citrus Park won the
Florida state championship in
the age 11-12 bracket.
That advanced Citrus Park to
the Southeast regional tourna-
ment. In the finale, the Florida
team beat Alabama handily, 11-
0.
They continued the domina-
tion in Friday's first game of the
Little League World Series.
Miller entered the game early,


when Rapid City had the bases
loaded with no outs. He struck
out two hitters on eight pitches.
Citrus Park then ran into
Waihapu, Hawaii, on Saturday.
The West team beat Citrus Park,
10-2, and went on to win the
pool title.
Starting in left field, Miller
made a standout diving catch
against Hawaii. "It was a really
nice catch," said Joyce, who
watched the game on television..


Citrus Park faced a must-win
game Sunday against Shelton,
Conn. The New England team
held a 2-1 lead headed into the
last regulation inning but
Florida tied the game on a home
run.
That forced an extra seventh
inning, when Florida hitters
exploded for six runs and the
win. Miller was not among
them -- while a three-position
defensive star, he is hitless in


the World Series.
Needing to close out the
game, Citrus Park coaches sent
Miller to the mound. He gave
up a hit but struck out two hit-
ters to seal the win.
The winner of the
Thursday's U.S. semifinal
advances to the U.S. champi-

school volleyball program at

said.
Pleased that 31 girls tried out

Ohioan, is determined build a

lege-type atmosphere. After last

'I don't look

too gruesome'


GIDEON / From 21
thing about the accident," Gideon
said. "I remember the helicopter
flight."
He dropped by practice to let
the Hurricane team members to
expect him back early in the sea-
son.
"I also wanted to show them I
don't look too gruesome," he
laughed.
The Hurricanes will install a
new offensive scheme for the fall
season, but preparations made
over the summer with new offen-
sive coordinator Kelly Clark
helped keep the process moving
in Gideon's absence.
"We'd already put together a
playbook," Gideon said.
Former head coach Jeff
Meyers has been working as
interim head coach with return-
ing defensive coordinator Blake


-Fry and assis-
-tant coaches
D.J. Miller
and Greg
Bianchini.
Gideon
joined the
Hurricane
football
GIDEON coaching staff
in 1996 and
took over as head coach before
the 2006 season. Despite their
record, the Canes made signifi-
cant progress in last year's 3-7
season, and expect to field sever-
al returning starters.
After the 7:30 p.m. Aug. 29
preseason game against Sheridan
Hill, the Canes open the season
with games on the road Sept. 5 at
Ransom and Sept. 12 at Key
West High School.
The first home game of the
regular season is 7:30 p.m. Sept.
19 against Westminster Christian.

Offshore
There are relatively few
charter boats getting out in
quest of offshore species
these days. but anglers tar-
geting dolphin have usually
found them.
Capt. Ke\in Kelly on the
MHthei load had a three-
quarter day last week and
racked more than 30 mahi-
mahi for his customers.
The bite of blackfin tuna
is prerr. good if you get to
the hump earl% in the morn-
ing and find current. The
tuna are not large. but pro-
vide good eats and variety in
the fish bo.\.

Reefs
- Yellow tail snapper, the
mainstay of reef fishing, are
still being caught in good"
numbers when the right con-
ditions exist. For successful
free-lining, one needs off-
color water and at least a
trickle of current, preferably
to the east
True snapper aficionados
should staN out into darkness
and get up shallow for great
mangro e snapper action.
Remember, the mangrove
lunmit is only five of the snap-
per bag limit, so be selective
;and release the smaller fish.

Gulf, bay
Snapper and trout are pro-,
%iding plenty of action in
Florida Bay and the near
Gulf. For the uninitiated, just
go northwest from Lower
Matecumbe or Long Key '
and stop when you get to the
smoky water.
For both trout and snap-
per. dnft jigs or cut bait near
the bottom. If you elect to
chum, you % ill probably get,
covered up with the catfish.

Flats, backcountry
In the Flamingo area,
many guides are up on the
flats finding redfish and the
occasional snook. The red-
fish seem to like the water
temperature in the upper 80s
and can be found cruising
the flats looking for crabs.
