. ,4ow it's Ike




that has our



attention


Tropical storm
could become
hurricane today
By KEVIN WADLOW
Senior Staff Writer
kwadlow@keynoter.com

No one likes the look of Ike.
With Hurricane Gustav buffet-
ing the Florida Keys just enough
to remind everyone that the peak
of storm season has arrived,
weather watchers turned their
attention to tropical storms
Hanna, Ike and Josephine.
"It's too early to say anything
about Ike, other than we're
watching it," said Irene Toner,
director of Monroe County
Emergency Management. "We


watch all of them closely, but Ike,
we are really, really watching it."
Tropical Storm Hanna,
expected to regain hurricane sta-
tus as it moves northward on its
forecast track through the
Bahamas, could come close
enough to affect Upper Keys
weather today or Thursday.
Ike, expected to graduate from
tropical storm to hurricane today,
is forecast to continue pushing
west through the southern
Caribbean this week. Whether or
when it decides to turn north is
the big unknown.
Josephine sits well into the
Atlantic, with an early track hav-
ing it go north of Florida.

No more budget cutting


By ALYSON CREAN
acrean@keynoter.com


Don't expect many more cuts
in the county budget for the com-
ing fiscal year but do expect
the big tax increase that's already
on the table.
In July, the Monroe County
Commission approved a pro-
posed aggregate millage rate of
3.234, or $323 per $100,000 in
property value. That's 18.7 per-
cent higher than the current
year's tax.
County Administrator Roman
Gastesi had assured the commis-
sion that every aspect of county
government would come under
scrutiny under what he called his,
"summer studies" program.
That's been done, and there's
nowhere else to cut, according to
Deputy County Administrator
Debbie Frederick.
"The way it looks right now,"
she .said, "it looks like [commis-
sioners will] be voting on the
same millage."
That millage would finance an


$87 million general fund budget,
up from the current $79 million.
Costs associated with numer-
ous retirements accrued vaca-
tion and sick pay as well as
employee buyouts are hurting
short-term savings, Frederick said.
So are the -costs of preparing
for possible hurricanes, including
opening an emergency operations
center for Tropical Storm Fay and
some possible overtime prepar-
ing for the foul weather over
Labor Day weekend.
Some savings might be
uncovered months down the road
but they are likely to take several
months to realize, and the County
Commission holds the first of
three budget hearings Sept. 10.
Adopting a millage rate as high
as Gastesi proposes would require
a four-fifths vote of the commis-
sion. If it's adopted with only
three of the five commissioners
voting for it, the state's penalty is
the loss of up to $8 million in state
sales tax dollars for Monroe.


That's because the Legislature
has mandated local governments
set millage rates at no higher than
the rollback rate.-Rollback is the
rate that would raise the same
amount of tax money next year as
this year.
If the commissioners don't
vote at least 4-1 to approve the
current rate, "then we're going to
have to make the really hard deci-
sions," Frederick said.
Already under scrutiny:
Selling or leasing both the
Gato Building in Key West and
the Marathon Government
Center. The county owns the land
on which its main Key West
office, the Gato, sits, but leases
from the state the land under the
Marathon Government Center.
Outsourcing services of the
Public Works and Growth
Management departments.
Reducing vacation and sick
leave accruals for new employees.
Evaluating the county's
system of providing its owns
health insurance coverage.


All eyes are now on Ike


WEATHER / From I

Still, with Ike out there, Keys
boats secured last weekend for
Gustav's gusts may well be
lashed down again next weekend.
"It's a lot of work with no
pay," Islamorada charter captain
Steve Leopold said.
"And it all seems to be placed
around the weekends," Leopold
said. "Everybody was wiped out
for Labor Day. When the storms
come back to back to back, it's
not pretty for business."
Two groups booked for trips
this week on Leopold's Yabba-
Dabba-Do already have cancelled.
"We're in the fun business,"
the captain said. "When it's
blowing over 25 mph, you can't
go on the water and have fun."
Forecasts show Ike approach-
ing Cuba by early Sunday. At
press time, the projected forecast
cone of potential paths extended
from south of Jamaica to Central
Florida.
"This far out, it's pretty uncer-
tain what it will do," said Tony
Fuentes, a meteorologist at the
Key West office of the National
Weather Service.
"We're on permanent standby


for the rest of the season," Toner
said. "With that parade of storm
fronts out there, it's like 2004,
when we had one after the other."
Hurricane Gustav passed
more than 200 miles west of Key
West on Saturday, but the broad
storm system still blanketed the
islands with wet and windy
weather.
The onshore weather station
in Key West registered a peak
wind gust of 54 mph from Gustav
while the offshore station at the
Sand Key Lighthouse clocked a
74 mph gust..
An Upper Matecumbe Key
wind gauge registered a 59 mph
gust, while the peak winds from
Big Pine Key and Key Largo
were around 36 mph, according
to the Weather Service.
"It seems like it mostly
depended on where the storm
bands went through," Fuentes
said.
Marathon took the wettest hit
from Gustav with 2.6 inches of
rain recorded.
Water left from the heavy
rains forced Sombrero Country
Club managers to close the
Marathon golf course's back nine
holes on Labor Day. The course
was open Tuesday.


Most other areas of the Keys
from Key West to Key Largo all
received around 1.5 inches of
rain from Gustav, Fuentes said.
Summer rains tend to bring
out the mosquitoes but weather-
permitting, the Florida Keys
Mosquito Control District "has
quite a few fixed-wing spraying
flights planned [today]," district
board member Dick Rudell said.
Some power outages were
reported from Gustav but none
were long-lasting.
"Overall, effects from Gustav
were pretty minimal," Toner said.
More than 50 people stayed
overnight at the Key West emer-
gency shelter, while special-
needs patients were taken to
Lower Keys Medical Center.
No visitor or resident evacua-
tions were ordered, but the
stormy weather made it a rela-
tively quiet Labor Day weekend.
"Last year, we had two boat-
ing deaths and another serious
boat accident over Labor Day,"
said Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission
Officer Bobby Dube. "This year,
everybody seemed to heed warn-
ings to stay off the water. It was
very calm for a Labor Day."


The Monroe County
Health Department tests
Keys nearshore water
quality each week for ele-
vated levels of enteric
bacteria. The currently are
no beaches with health
advisories posted against
swimming.

City ramps upAYo


boat-launch rules* Ir


Dodge Lake
ramp hours
are restricted
By RYAN McCARTHY
rmccarthy@keynoter.com


Citing growing numbers of
noisy boaters clogging the road,
the Marathon City Council has
ctit hours at the Dodge Lake
boat Tamp:
The council made the deci-
sion Aug. 26 after numerous res-
idents living near the ramp at
Aviation Boulevard and Harbor
Drive complained their neigh-
borhood is no longer safe.
The ramp was originally
intended to be used solely by
city residents, but tourist traffic
at the ramp has become a prob-
lem the past two years.
The ramp will now be open
to the public from sunrise to
sunset each day and the council
said it plans to pursue making
the ramp exclusive to Marathon
residents.
"We have people riding five
in the back of a boat at 10 at
night with boom boxes going,"
said former Mayor Bob Miller,
' ho hi es in the neighborhood.
"Yiu can't make a left turn onto
Harbor Drive anymore from
Friday into Sunday evening."
"' n a good weekend, after
hours from 10 p.m. to 2 a.m.,
you have at least 30 boats com-
ing in," resident and City
Council candidate Allen


Pedersen said.
Boaters lined up waiting to
launch oftentimes block the turn
off Aviation Boulevard..
Resident Dan Piedra said he
blames the city for not planning,
ahead when it replaced the old
ramp with a new pre-stressed
ramp in November 2006.
"I don't blame the tourists for
blocking Aviation or Harbor
Drive; where are they going to
go? You guys put a boat ramp in
the middle of a neighborhood
and didn't make arrangements
for parking," Piedra said.
The Dodge Lake ramp has
only four parking spots.
In June 2007, Piedra and
other residents went before the
council complaining the proper-
ty adjacent to the ramp at 1509
Harbor Drive was being used as
a parking lot for trucks and trail-
ers.
Then-City Manager Mike
Puto was forced to place barri-
cades in front of the property to
prevent public access after prop-
erty owner Paul Van Buren had
placed signs on the vacant lot
declaring it "'Dodge Lake Park."
Exacerbating problems at
Dodge Lake are issues the city
has had repairing both the 33rd
Street and Quay boat ramps.
Ports Manager C.J. Geotis said a
new ramp is expected to be in
place at the Quay ramp at mile
marker 54 by Friday.
"It's a matter of the concrete
curing for a week, so that ramp

should be up and running in two
weeks," Geotis said.
Councilman Don Vasil was
the. lone dissenter in the vote to
restrict hours at Dodge Lake,
citing a lack of available boat
ramps and an inability to
enforce the rule.
City Manager Clyde Burnett
said a sign stating the ramp's
new hours is in place, but
numerous residents, including
commercial fishermen who
launch before sunrise, have
expressed concern,.
"We're sort of straddling the
issue because after we put up the
sign, a whole bunch of the peo-
ple said they take off early,"
Burnett said. "The sign is still
up, but we haven't put any kind
of chain up."

Taddeo runs due to frustration

shift from red to blue when she
faces Ros-Lehtinen in the
November general election.
"People want a new start,"
)0 said Taddeo, pointing out that
in the past two years the
Republican advantage in con-
s gressional District 18 has
shrunk from 22,000 to 8,000
registered voters.
In 2006, Ros-Lehtinen
defeated Democratic challenger
David Patlak, winning 60 per-
cent of the. votes in Monroe
County. Patlak got 40 percent
of the votes despite spending
just $76,000 compared to Ros-
Lehtinen's $1.5 million.
Taddeo has raised more than
$725,000 and will also benefit
from the Democratic Congres-
sional Campaign Committee's
$1.4 million South Florida TV
buy in November.
The Taddeo campaign is
depending on Democrats but
also on attracting independents.
Ross Cohen, Taddeo's cam-
paign manager, says independ-
ents are favoring Taddeo to
* Ros-Lehtinen 2-1.
District 18 includes the
majority of Miami-Dade
County and all of Monroe
County. The length and combi-
nce nation of urban and rural areas
fnor making campaigning here diffi-
cult; "It's a challenge...Totally
different issues," said Taddeo.
She went on to say that the
Keys shouldn't be left behind.
"Coming in to visit or for
photo-ops isn't enough," she
said:.
Taddeo, who was born in
Colombia, says her opponent's
biggest weakness is continual
rubber-stamping of President
Bush's legislation that indicates
a sense of complacency. Her
decision to run "came down to
frustration."
Taddeo's role as executive
board member of Women
Impacting Public Policy and
previous position as chair-
woman of the Coalition of
Dade-County Chambers of
Commerce has led her to work
with Ros-Lehtinen in the past.
She called her opponent "a
very nice representative who
would work with us, take pic-
tures with us and not much
else."
Tommy Mack, a supporter of
Ros-Lehtinen, spoke to Taddeo

Cynthia Edwards took a break from cleaning up the yard at
her Olivia St. home to speak with Democratic Congressional
candidate Annette Taddeo on Sunday:


on Pine Street in Key West on
Sunday afternoon as the candi-
date walked door-to-door.
"She's accessible...we're an
email away," said Mack of Ros-
Lehtinen. "We think she's
grounded pretty well in the
Keys."
Despite Mack's satisfaction
with his representation, Taddeo
explained her stances and field-
ed questions ranging from eco-
nomic concerns to abortion.
Taddeo identified the econo-
my as the major issue facing
Congress. She said that a bad
economy has caused major
problems within the education
and healthcare systems.
"The economy depends so
much on development," said
Taddeo. In addition to encour-
aging companies to move to
South Florida, Taddeo also
wants to safeguard small busi-
ness.
"A lot of small business
owners want to see someone
who understands," said Taddeo
who founded and runs
LanguageSpeak, a company
that provides translation servic-
es and tutoring in more than
100 languages. "The tax system
doesn't encourage entreper-
nuership."
Ros-Lehtinen was instru-
mental in legislating the current
travel restrictions placed on
Cuban-Americans; they are
allowed one trip to Cuba every
three years.
Taddeo calls her opponent's
stance on Cuban relations
"extreme right-,wing." Taddeo
said that t41tt ?Sicti6ris don't


allow for exceptions like illness
or emergency; a Cuban in
Miami cannot go visit a dying
relative if it does not conform
to the travel rules. "You don't
have to be Cuban-American to
know those aren't family val-
ues," said Taddeo.
Taddeo said she wants to
bring the environmental factors
affecting the Keys' fragile coral
reef into the national spotlight.
"I definitely want to protect our
special resources...It shouldn't
be a Keys issue, it should be a
national issue."
She went on. to cite the
potential for green energy in the
Keys, particularly solar1,o.wer.
Taddeo said an investment in an
ocean turbine could light up the
Lower Keys. She ,Nent. ohn to
say that District 18 has lacked
the leadership and foresight to
work towards a better, cleaner
future: '"I think we need for-
ward thinkers at this time in our
county."
"People are looking at this
race and seeing opportunity,"
said Taddeo. "We're ready."
According to the Florida
Division of Elections, in 2008
IMonroe County had 18,163
registered Republicans, 16,840
Democrats and 10,863 inde-
pendents or nonaffiliated vot-
ers. When compared to the
same figures from 2006,
Democratic and independent
registration has increased by
289 and 474, respectively.
Over the same period of time
Republican registration only
grew by 127 people.

A 'different game' when guns involved


SHOOTING / From 1

then left and eventually came
back after the establishment
closed and employees were gone
for the night.
"They came up in a boat when
we were closing and asked if they
could catch last call. They sat out
here and had their drinks and left
and apparently came back
between then and 10:30 [p.m.]
and 10:45, whenever the shooting
occurred," Frost said.
Frost said it's common for
Boot Key Harbor residents to sit
on the restaurant's oceanfront
deck after hours.
He said the group of people
involved: had been to Frosty's
before and that the lead detective
on the case told him the Sheriff's
Office has had extensive trouble
with them. He estimated between
four and six people were with the
group.
"It's just a bunch of people out
acting stupid and when you get
guns in play, it's a whole different
game," Frost said.
When interviewed by detec-
tives, members of the group said
Frosty's had closed but manage-
ment told them they could stay
and finish their drinks. At some
point, an argument began.
According to reports, Willett,
who lives aboard a boat in the
neighboring Boot Key Harbor,
went to his dinghy, got a handgun


K- After rainfall, make sure to inspect

and brought it back to Frosty's.
At that point, the stories col-
lected by deputies aren't clear
about what happened other than
the shootings.
When deputies arrived, Willett
was found on his sailboat;
Beasley was still in the area of
Frosty's and walked up to the
ambulance when it arrived. Both
men were taken to Fishermen's
Hospital.
Willet was later airlifted by
the TraumaStar medical transport
to Ryder Trauma Center in
Miami. Beasley was initially
treated at Fishermen's, but was
later transferred by ambulance to
the same hospital.
Bentley has been arrested


twice in the Keys on several
charges, including two felony
counts of battery on an officer or
firefighter, one felony count of
resisting an officer with violence,
a felony count of possessing a


controlled substance without pre-
scription, and a misdemeanor
count of indecent exposure.
Willet was arrested Aug. 16 in
Marathon on a misdemeanor
charge of shoplifting.

Keys Opinion


Tighter lending rules

now penalize residents

Boy, you know things are bad when prospective home buy-
ers are having a hard time qualifying for $130,000 mortgages
to buy workforce housing in Islamorada.
Saturday's Keynoter detailed the woes at Woods Comer and
quoted housing advocate Rick Casey saying it's the most diffi-
cult situation he's seen in 15 years.
Today's Keynoter carries a parallel report on a workforce
housing project in Marathon that was much heralded when
approved two years ago by the City Council.
Part of the problem, of course, comes from lenders who have
now tightened their loan rules after seeing exotic, interest-only
loans blow up in their face. '
-Because some lenders operated fast and loose, prospective
buyers struggling to make ends, meet now wind up paying a
penalty again. This time it's not price that's the stumbling
block, but the lack of affordable financing.
Some critics of workforce housing efforts have been outspo-
ken in their disdain for government-supervised programs, argu-
ing the private marketplace can accommodate just as well.
Hogwash.
To imagine somehow that a struggling single mom working
two low-paid service jobs can somehow cash in on the short
sales and distress sales in today's real estate market is just naive
at best. Won't happen.
Over on the other side of the spectrum we're witnessing pres-
sure to expand funding to build more affordable housing.
Key West Mayor Morgan McPherson has been a big propo-
nent of adding another penny to the local-option sales tax as
one way to assure adequate funds.
Of course, he's run into a buzz saw of negative publicity
about jumping the gun, since any such increase in state sales
tax requires the Legislature to get involved. And others prefer
any .increase in sales tax help property owners pay for new
sewer construction, not more workforce housing.
In the meantime, while the political wrangling continues,
every day the terms get tougher for first-time homebuyers.
Deb Gills, who chair's Islamorada's Affordable/Workforce
Housing Citizens Advisory Committee, told our senior reporter
Kevin Wadlow that "good people ... we want to keep in our
community" are finding themselves unable to get loans..
"It's just really, really tough getting through the mortgage
process now," Gills said.
And despite every good effort made by the local land trusts,
by individual city councils or county commissions, that financ-
ing hurdle will not be overcome here locally.
This is a national problem and will require a national pre-
scription to cure.

Planned burn on Big Pine wasn't needed


EDITOR:
For the record, the Pine Acres Conservation
Association Inc. contacted Chris Berg of The
Nature Conservancy on Tuesday to inform him
that we were not in favor of their bum on the
Terrestris site in the center of Big Pine Key. This
was after discussion among both board members
and advisory board members of the organization.
The reasons we could not support the pre-
scribed bum were that there was really no reason
to bum. The property was just burned in 2003.
Since then, it was under the storm surge of
Hurricane Wilma and the pine rockland habitat
and the slash pines .are just starting to recover
from the combined stress of these events.
A good portion of the 17-acre site is in fact


not pine rocklands, and our group and others are
opposed to burning non-fire-related habitats such
as buttonwood forest and hammock.
In April 2007, the Pine Rocklands Citizens
Task Force suggested not burning any habitat
until at least 2010, and instead study the effects
of the storm surges of Wilma and Rita in 2005.
Many species of native trees have experienced.
dramatic declines since then. Some are on the
edge of extinction, and many have been reduced
to remnants of their historical ranges.
It would serve us all to adopt a more cautious
approach in managing habitats that so many
native species depend upon for survival.

Commissioner works for people, not colleagues


EDITOR:
Your Aug. 30 editorial "Neugent may hold
cards, needs to be a statesman" has me digging
out my Abe Lincoln garb for the next County
Commission meeting. Yeah, right.
I've got as much chance of being considered a
statesman as Mike Tyson does in getting an invi-
tation to sit with Obama, Michelle and the kids at
the presidential inauguration. You know, it just
doesn't suit my style.
My parents always taught me fair play and
politeness, and after doing everything you could
to beat the day lights out of your opponent you
shook hands in victory or defeat.
I've said this more than once I don't work
for my fellow commissioners, I work for the resi-


dents and voters of this county. Although .I do my
best to get along with everyone, I didn't run for
office to get along with my fellow commission-
ers and I'm sure they whoever they will be -
feel the same way.
There is a quote somewhere in the National
Association of Counties' monthly newspaper that I
love and every commissioner should live by:
"Please God, give me the wisdom to know and the
courage to protect and defend the public's interest."
For you to even insinuate "gang leader" is an
insult not only to me but, I'm sure, the future
commission members.

Majority is going in the other direction

The primary election of Aug. 26 has been a
victory for the majority of citizens in Monroe

two of the majority of three county commission-

the citizens of Monroe County.

Kudos for Coast Guard
EDITOR:
As the storm Fay was leaving Marathon, we
received a pleasant and welcome visit from two
very nice young men from the U.S. Coast Guard,
Chief Petty Officer Jeffrey Lewis and Petty
Officer 1st Class Russell Dorin.
While checking boats in the area for storm
damage, they noticed that our research fireboat, El
Fuego, was down by the bow and wanted us to be
aware of the problem. We explained that this was
not a problem because we ballast the bow down
when the boat is sitting at the dock. This brings
the stem up and keeps the out drives and running
gear out of the water same as a boatlift.
We believe the-Coast Guard should be
applauded for its concern and wish to express
our appreciation.

selves to voting in the best interests of Monroe

that when the District 4 commissioner is up for -

Don't mess with success


EDITOR:
It is ironic that the one thing that has
been a stable constant in Marathon,
Marathon Garbage Service, is now" com-
ing under the gun of some of our com-
missioners.
We have not had a rise in residential
service costs for many years, and yet they
provide us with two garbage pickups, one
yard waste pickup, one recycle and white
goods on demand. I, for one, am sick of
seeing work taken from our locals and
given to out of area contractors.
As for the recycling program, the
Keys had an excellent recycle program in


the early to mid-1990s. We generated
revenue, and we were, in fact, lauded by
destination points as one of the purest
collection sites in South Florida.
While it is true there were infrastruc-
ture expenditures, they would have
decreased substantially the year the com-
mission decided to turn from a county-
run program and give it to private indus-
try. A new waste collector is going to do
nothing to improve recycling efforts.
Please, county commissioners, do one
thing right, leave our waste removal alone.
Tina Warren
Marathon


Trash hauler a community asset


EDITOR:
For the sake of discussion, let's just.
say you were fortunate (especially in
the Keys) to have a service that was
reliable, professional, fairly priced and
locally owned in their service area.
However, there was a group that for
some unknown reason wished to get rid
of the successful provider.
Methinks perhaps there must be
some personal reasons outside of the
common good for championing such a
cause. Case in point is Marathon
Garbage Service in the Middle Keys.
Having spent some time in the waste
industry, I can tell you Marathon has a
jewel in MGS.
The three-generations, family owned
company does more pro bono work
than most even realize. A good local


company is rare, as most have taken the
easy way out and sold out to the big
guys. The Konraths have fortunately
(for Marathon) turned down the big
check and opted to keep the business
for the next generation. When your
plans are for the long haul, you do the
right thing; you don't cut comers with
service, people and equipment.
From my experience ii the waste
business, I can honestly say that MGS
is about as good as it gets. Regardless
of who is put in its place, you will not
improve the service simply because
these people have based their reputa-
tion on the company and, more impor-
tantly, the future of their children and
grandchildren. Enough said.
Bob Guerin
Marathon


It's not broken, so don't fix it


EDITOR:
It is amazing that with all the prob-
lems this county has to deal with, they
now have set their sites on putting the
garbage services out for bid. For the
more than 30 years that I have used
Marathon Garbage Service, you could
never find a more reliable, well-run and
bargain-priced service.
:When I was still in Ohio more than
30 years ago, we had once-a-week pick-
up for $20 per month for garbage only
and for just one can. Anything over that
and you got charged. Any special pick-
up, you were charged.
For literally the same amount, you
get twice-weekly garbage, once-weekly
yard trash, recycle pickup with little or
no restrictions on amounts, and special
pickups for no extra charge. For these
companies to have maintained the same
rates for 10 years and then request an
extension of their contract for the same
amounts is amazing, especially with'the
fuel costs, let alone all the other increas-
es they have to absorb.
To the county commissioners pushing
this insane idea, if it ain't broke, don't
fix it. As for somehow trying to blame


the service for the dismal recycling per-
centage is ludicrous. The blame is on the
commission for not passing incentives to
recycle, for -example, reduced garbage
fees or fines for not recycling.
I have recycled since Day 1, when
you had to take the materials to the yard
on Aviation Boulevard and separate
them yourself. It is very easy to do and
takes little time.
To this commission: Get back to
work and solve the problems of this
county that really heed to be taken care
of, not going after something that is
working perfectly and efficiently.

Russell calls for museum


By DAVID BALL
dball@keysreporter.com


While Hurricane Gustav was
bearing down on the Gulf Coast
Monday morning, a group of
Islamorada residents was sweat-
ing in the Keys sun with barely a
breeze in the sky.
But their thoughts were likely
with the millions who evacuated


New Orleans and neighboring
cities, as the Keys crowd gath-
ered to honor the hundreds who
died during the Labor Day hurri-
cane of 1935.
Longtime Islamorada resident
Richard Russell stood in front of
the coral monument on Upper
Matecumbe Key that marks the


event and shared how the
strongest storm ever to make
landfall in the U.S. shaped Keys
history.
"Seventy-three years ago
today, my grandparents ... were
preparing for what they heard
was to be a storm," Russell told
the crowd. "And some 30 to 36
hours later, they along with 40
other family members would be
deceased."
Pinders, Alburys, Parkers,
Thompsons, Lowes the Upper
Keys' founding families all lost
members in the storm. The
remains of some, along with
some of the hundreds of war vet-
erans who also perished while
working on the Overseas
Highway, are inside the monu-
ment.
The annual Labor Day cere-
mony honored the more than 500
lives lost with an invocation from
Pastor Tony Hammon from
Island Community Church and
stories from longtime Islamorada
historian Irving Eyster.
But it was Russell who made a
call to the audience to keep the
memories of the hurricane, along
with other tales of Islamorada
history, alive and well inside a

Housing project in jeopardy


By RYAN McCARTHY
rmccarthy@keynoter.com


Old Town Key West
Development owner Ed Swift
says a tight credit market may
jeopardize his plans to build a
40-home affordable housing
project in Marathon.
"The present situation in
Florida and most of the country
is that end users that want to
buy a house, they are having
great difficulty in getting mort-
gage money," Swift said. "The
project we envisioned is
dependent on people getting
money; it's not lack of interest."
Swift told the Marathon City
Council Aug. 26 that engineer-
ing plans and surveying for the
proposed Paradise Landings,
which sits on city-owned land
on 104th Street, are near com-
pletion. Swift said he would
seek loans to clear the 2.73-acre
lot, which will likely cost
$250,000.
"To do that work and put in
the infrastructure, we can't do
that without having some com-
mitment from a bank," he said.
Swift said he's previously
been able to secure loans with-
out pre-selling homes, but
banks are hesitant to fund hous-
ing in today's economy.
"The banks have been good
about jumping in and taking a
risk. It would be harder for
them to do that now not know-
ing if the end users can get into
ti6 house." he said.

b'iroom, 1.5-bath; two-bed-
rhor,. tro-bath; and three-bed-
ro4al. t[o-bath homes. They

A bulldozer has been plowing
through two buildings this week
at the historic Harris School in
Key West, a move the Monroe
County School District says was
necessary for safety and security.
"It's falling apart,"
Superintendent Randy Acevedo
said. "We're making it safer."
"That back half was haz-
ardous," School Board Chairman
.Stephen Pribramsky said. "And
there were issues of security."
The two buildings on
Southard Street, one the former
administration building for the
Monroe Association of Retarded
Citizens and the other a storage
site for MARC's former plant
store, were built in the 1950s.
But while they're coming down,
the stately old school itself still
stands empty, waiting for what-
ever its next calling will be.
"We have it all up for sale,"


Historic site
still for sale
but no takers
By ALYSON CREAN
acrean@keynoter.com


Pribramsky said.
The school, half hidden
behind- a gigantic kapok tree,
was built in 1909 and served as
Key West's first high school.
For several years, many who
live in the Southard Street area
feared the Harris School would
be sold off for redevelopment as
condos.
So in December 2004, the
School Board agreed to sell it to
the state for $5.4 million for
preservation as a historic site.
The board backed out of the deal
when then-Gov. Jeb Bush and
the Cabinet demanded the
School District use the proceeds
of the sale for affordable hous-
ing.
The board later reversed itself
but this past February, the state
lost interest in buying the Harris
School and took it off its Florida
Forever acquisition list.
It remains a designated histor-
ical landmark, and as such
comes with restrictions on how it
can be renovated.

property," Pribramsky said.
There are actually five half-
acre lots behind the school, each
with a single building allowance.
"The [request for proposals]
is open to one bid on the whole
-thing or a piece," said Acevedo.
"Now,-if we had bids just on the
lots, we'd have the money we
need to restore the historic build-
ing itself for something like adult
education, which is overcrowded
at Key West High School." ".
Bidding on the property
closed Aug. 20, according to
Demand Star, the online Web site
for government contract bids. No
bids were received, Acevedo
said, and the School District -is
considering extending the
request.
According to the request .for
bids, the property is split into
two parcels, one containing the
historic school, the other the land
on which the buildings being
razed sit. According to the bid
documents, zoning in the mostly
residential neighborhood could
allow some low-impact commer-
cial use, like offices or a restau-
rant "with very limited seating."

Islamorada residents and
visitors have a new place to-
enjoy coffee, frozen drinks,
ice cream and other comfort
food that won't hurt their wal-
lets.
Desiray Pruett has opened
On the Bricks Cafe in the
Caribbean Village courtyard
shopping center at mile mark-
er 81.9 oceanside. She opened
her doors to customers Aug. 1.
"I want to cater to the local
crowd who want to eat in a
nice environment and have a
good meal for under $10,"
Pruett said.
The menu includes sand-
wiches, wraps and her most
popular item, pulled pork.
"I sell out of that every
day," Pruett said.
There are also daily spe-
cials. Everything is made
fresh on site. She also makes
her own ice cream, and noth-


ing on Pruett's menu is over
$7.
She also said she will make
items not on the menu, if
requested by customers.
"If I have the ingredients,
I'll gladly do it," she said.
Customers can eat their
food or enjoy their drinks in
the bricked courtyard 'under
the shade of ficus trees. There
will also be live music by
local musicians including
Pruett.
She said she also hopes to
do delivery once the business
gets going enough for her to
hire staff.
For now, On the Bricks is
open Monday through
Saturday, 10 a.m. through 4
p.m., but Pruett hopes to
extend her hours so she can
hold open-mic nights and dart
tournaments.
Pruett, 32, has lived in the
Keys for four years, but said
she has been coming here to
visit family since she was a
little girl. She had worked at
area restaurants before open-
ing On the Bricks. She said
when she told her friends she

Corals' libido stuck in neutral


'We'd play Barry White music if we thought it would help'
By KEVIN WADLOW
Senior Staff Writer
kwadlow@keynoter.com


The August full moon had
passed, so on a starlit night at the
Looe Key reef, a team of marine
scientists rolled off the back of a
Mote Marine Laboratory boat.'
A reef shark startled by. the
unexpected nocturnal visitors
fled into the dark water, escaping
the probing beams of dive lights.
A small octopus ignored the
commotion, continuing its quest
for dinner in the crannies of the
Lower Keys reef.
Researchers working from
Mote's Tropical Research
Laboratory on Summerland Key
came to Looe on a hunting expe-
dition for some of the smallest
game imaginable gametes
, from an anticipated spawn of
mountain star coral.
"We just have to hope they do
it for us tonight," Koty Sharp, a
post-doctoral fellow at the
Smithsonian Marine Research
Center in Fort Pierce, said while
preparing for the dive.
"If things go right, we may
come back with millions" of
gametes released once a year by
the corals, Sharp said.
"There's also the chance we
get skunked," she said.
Small, pinkish bundles
released by corals each contain
sperm and eggs, Sharp
explained, but cells from d
colony cannot fertilize each
other.
Six researcherss on the dive
team aimed to capture gametes
from eight coral mounds at Looe,
placing specially designed fine-
mesh nets over the mounds. The
cells are funneled into a collec-
tion bucket,.then taken to the sur-
face. An around-the-clock
process to fertilize the gametes
and nurture the resultant baby
corals begins immediately.
"We start mixing them as
soon as we get back on the boat,"
Sharp said. "We'd play Barry
White music if we thought it
would help."
But getting coral gametes to
successfully mingle and produce
offspring "is very challenging,"
Sharp said.
"They're very picky cells.
Everything has to be.just right,"
she said. "We call them our divas


because they're so sensitive and
needy, very high maintenance."
In nature, the buoyant bundles
of gametes would float to the sur-
face, mixing in a sheen. Cells
that fertilize turn into small
swimming larvae. After a few
days on the move, the corals seek
a nice hard bottom surface to set-
tle down for the rest of their
lives.
But factors including disease,
pollution and high ocean acidity
apparently caused by global
warming have reduced the num-
ber of healthy corals, and inhibit
the start of new colonies.
Research projects many
with significant funding from the
Florida Keys' most popular spe-
cialty license plate seek to
learn more about the coral life
cycle so future generations can
marvel at a vibrant coral reef.
Money paid by motorists for
the state's coral-reef specialty
license plate play a large role in
funding the coral research. Sales
of the plate generate about $1
million annually for a total of
more than $4 million since it was
introduced five years ago, Mote
staffer Jennifer Roberts said. The
Save Coral Reefs plate in the
best-selling specialty tag in
Monroe County.
Coral cells collected in the
spawning (different coral species
spawn at different times) will be
used in scientific studies. New
information could help safeguard
corals in the wild, and help biol-


ogists grow corals for transplant
on the reef.
But increasing knowledge of
the coral lifecycle comes in small
steps.
Sharp is working to learn how
corals interact with various
marine bacteria. Some bacteria
may kill corals, she said, while
others may be needed to thrive.
"We don't know much about the
harmful bacteria," she said. "And
even less about the ones that may
be beneficial."
Max Teplitski from the
University of Florida is focusing
on various coral "signals," trans-
mitted by chemicals, that may
tell corals where to settle in order
to survive and when to spawn.
All the corals on a mound typ-
ically spawn in a wave that
sweeps from one side of the
mound to the other. Since noth-
ing physical connects the indi-
vidual corals in a colony, how do
they know when it's time?
But on this late August night,
the mountain star corals at Looe
turn fickle. No spawn appears on
a night the calendar says it
should. The passing of Tropical
Storm Fay may have played an
inhibiting role, scientists specu-
late.
The next night, one coral
mound generates a modest
spawn.
Researchers plan to return
again this month when the
September full moon may trigger
a late spawning season.

In carefully controlled tanks at

Tropical Research facility in
the Lower Keys, young corals
are nurtured toward maturity.
Onshore at Mote, scientists
are working to grow 25 species
of young corals, saved frdl1,a
marine construction project, in a
controlled environment.
"People have been reforesting
areas for more than century and
we're learning how to do it with
dunes and sea grasses," said
David Vaughan, a scientist who
administers Mote's Keys facility.
"There's no reason we can't
eventually learn to restore a reef,
or build one where there was
never a reef before."

Marathon wins
in a warmup
for Key West
By RYAN McCARTHY
rmccarthy@keynoter.com

Even though it notched an
easy 24-0 victory Friday,
Marathon High School football
coach Lance Martin says the
team will need a much stronger
effort to defeat Key West High
School in this weekend's regular
season opener.
Martin said the Dolphins
played strong defensively and on
special teams, but left more
points on the field then it scored
due to fumbles and mental mis-
takes on offense.
Still, Marathon shut out Pope
John Paul II High School at the
Eagles' Boca Raton field for the
second straight year in the teams'
preseason contest.
The Dolphins outgained Class


!s


2A Pope John Paul 343 yards to
67 and held the Eagles to just
three first downs.
"We probably left easily four
touchdowns out there; it was that
lopsided when it came to us mov-
ing the ball," Martin said.
"Against Key West, if we do that,
we won't be able to make up the
difference because Key West is a
good team and we're going to
end up losing."
Junior quarterback Nyran
Ross had a .solid game for the
Dolphins, throwing for 144 yards
and a touchdown to go along
with 101 yards rushing. Martin
said the Eagles keyed on shutting
down junior running back A.J.
Freeman, who rushed 14 times
for 46 yards and a touchdown.
"They played with eight men
at the line of scrimmage the
whole time, so we threw more
than we normally do," he said.

Key West wins,

Friday night
By DICK WAGNER
Keynoter Contributor

The preseason 13-6 victory
over Miami Beach Friday night
at Tommy Roberts Memorial
Stadium educed smiles from.the
Key West High School players,
but hardly left coach Jerry
Hughes happy.
"One of those dirty wins,"
said Hughes, who was dissatis-
fied with his offense. "We were.


lucky."
If the Conchs can't score
more than 13 points in their sea-
son opener at 7:30 p.m. Friday
against visiting Marathon, they
could be in danger of losing to
the Dolphins for the second con-
secutive year.
Hughes, who is back at Key
West for the first time in 10
years, wasn't around for last
season's 25-14. loss to
Marathon, but is well aware of
it.
"That was a demoralizing,"

Defense sets up offense


HURRICANES / From 14

Sheridan's deepest offensive pen-
etration and recovered a fumble.
"Just keep hustling to get to the
ball," Lofton said. "Never stop."
On a night when the Hurricane
offense struggled to assemble a
long scoring drive, the Coral
Shores defense limited Sheridan
Hills to three first downs.
Coral Shores defenders threw
a net over the Shark attack, mak-
ing stops for zero or negative
yards on 15 plays.
"This defense is a good unit,"
coordinator Blake Fry said.
"They're experienced an.d strong,
and they listen."
Defensive end Pat Naughton
and back Ryan Biondoletti each
made interceptions, while tackle
Evan Signor and Curll recovered
fumbles.
The Canes went with a five-
man defensive lilie.- Curll and
Naughton at the ends, Justin
Marshall and Alex Monteagudo
at tackle. Mark Tribble and
Signor clogged the middle at
nose tackle.
"Our tackles were jamming
them inside and we didn't give
them anything else," Curll said.
Courtney Dixon, a sopho-
more, and Eric Waite, a senior,
played outstanding games at line-
backer. Backs TJ. Sabalka and
Mike Hampson covered a crew
of fast Shark receivers.
Senior power runner Austin
Kaile :rumbled 57 yards, includ-
ing touchdowns of 17 and 2
yards, to lead the Hurricane
ground game (158 yards).
All three Hurricane touch-
down drives were set up by
defensive stands.
Kicker William Bassett was
awarded a game ball for consis-
tently punting Coral Shores out
of trouble, and pinning the Sharks
deep in their own end. "It's a
multi-faceted game," said Jeff
Meyers, interim head coach.
Bassett made all three point-
after kicks, and came close on a
52-yard field goal try.
Bassett's biggest play may
have been on a kickoff return
when he made a textbook tackle
when the Shark returned had
nothing else but open field in
front of him.
Sheridan Hills showed its spe-
cial-teams skill on its only touch-
down, a 99-yard return by Frainy
Alfrena with 5:03 left in the game.
The Sharks looked like they
would score first when a lost


Hurricane fumble and penalty
have Sheridan Hills a first-and-
goal at the Cane 9-yard line early
in the second quarter.
Coral Shores' defense
responded with a stop for a 2-
yard loss, and a sack that moved
Sheridan Hills back to the 27.
The Sharks went to the air but
Lofton made the interception.
Late in the second, Curll made
consecutive stops, including a 9-
yard sack, to force a Sheridan
punt. A bad snap forced the
punter to scoop the ball, and his
knee touched as bent.down. That
gave Coral Shores the ball at the
Shark 19, and set the stage for
Kaile's 17-yard score.
Bassett made his touchdown-
saving tackle on the ensuing
return.
Naughton intercepted and
made a good return when the
Canes tried to throw on first down.
Quarterback Chris Rini ran for
25 yards and passed for 22 to
Tribble out of the backfield to run
out the half at 7-0.
After a scoreless third, Bassett
punted from midfield down to the

Sharks' 4-yard line. On first down,
the Cane defense knocked the ball
loose and Signor recovered.
Kaile ran once for a 2-yard
gain, and again for a 2-yard
touchdown at the 6:45 mark.
A discouraged Sheridan Hills
offense seemed to sense the game
was over. On the next drive,
Biondoletti intercepted. A 15-
yard penalty on the return moved
the ball to the Shark 16.
On first down, Rini threw 16
yards to Biondoletti on the left
sideline for the third Coral Shores
score.
It was the Canes' aerial high-
light in a game marked by low
throws and dropped balls.
Coral Shores goes on the road
for its next two games, to Ransom
Everglades on Friday and to Key
West High School on Sept. 12.

The POWER to lower your monthly
energy bill is in YOUR HANDS!

Here is a tip to help you reduce
your energy consumption:



RAISE air conditioning thermostats
to 78 degrees or warmer during summer
S months. And consider raising thermostats to
82 degrees or warmer if you are planning on being
away from your home for an extended period of time.

Ross responded .by spreading
the ball around to what Martin
says is the best group of receivers
he's coached at Marathon. All
seven of Ross's completions
were to different receivers.
"We can throw four or five
deep out there [that] I feel confi-
dent with Nyran throwing the
ball to," Martin said.
Marathon opened the scoring
in the first quarter with a four-
yard Freeman touchdown run fol-
lowing an Eagle fumble. Ross
later capped an 82-yard drive
with a 35-yard scoring pass to
junior Kenyatta Scott, giving the
Dolphins a 14-0 halftime lead.
The Dolphins continued to
stymie the Eagles defensively in
the second half, forcing three
straight three-and-outs before an


'ope

CASTER


interception- by freshman
Trevelle Beckford.
Beckford's pick led to a
touchdown pass from backup
quarterback Blaine Connell to
junior receiver Patrick Auguste,
giving the Dolphins a command-:
ing 24-0 lead.
Defensively, the Dolphins
dominated by simply running a
base defense. The Eagles have a
new coaching staff and offensive
system this year and had trouble
executing against a smaller but
faster Marathon team.
Dolphin senior Hector Vicoiso
_notched six tackles while moving
from safety to linebacker
throughout the game. Senior
Bobby Richardson had four tack-
les.
Friday's game against the
Conchs is scheduled to begin at 8
p.m. at Tommy Roberts
Memorial Stadium in Key'West.


'We should beat them'


CONCHS / From 14

he said. "The people on my staff
said the effect of that defeat last-
ed all season. I don't want that to
happen."
And so the determination to
avenge that loss is, Hughes said,
"the burning fuel."
"It's a game we're expected to
win," Hughes said. "We should
beat them because we're a-bigger
school and should have better
athletes."
The Conchs will need a better
performance from junior quarter-
back Stephen Jones, who except
for a 4-yard touchdown pass to
Ethan McKenzie, did not distin-
guish himself on a wet field
against Miami Beach.
"He had a bad game and made


bad decisions," Hughes said. "I
hope it was just first-game jit-
ters."
-The Conchs spent a lot of time
in Miami Beach's side of the
field, but consistently failed in
third-down situations. The other
touchdown came on a 45-yard
run by Michael Sohi.
"If we don't put 21 points on
the board, we don't have a
chance," Hughes said.
The night belonged to a Key
West defense led by senior line-
backer Alfred Rahming, who led
the team in 'tackles, and defensive
back Clinton McCoy, who had
two interceptions. Miami Beach's
only touchdown came on a 23-
yard pass in the second quarter.
"The defense stopped them
when it had to stop them,"
Hughes said.

TEAM EFFORT: This 48-pound
dolphin was caught while the
anglers were fishing from the
'Reel Encounter II' out of
Burdines Marina in Marathon.
The lucky three who brought
home nice filets are (from
left) Becky Carney of Winter
Haven, and Drew Estes and
Nina Marcaccio from Mount
Airy, N.C. This was Estes' first
dolphin trip.


Portrait of the artist...


You've heard phrases to
describe someone of many talents
and interests like Renaissance
man or jack of all trades. Those
pretty much some up marine
artist Joe Suroviec writer,
businessman, artist, father, cap-
tain and tournament angler.
Suroviec first came to the
Keys in 1989 from northwestern
Pennsylvania and knew it was to
become a permanent part of his
life.
"I started working for the"
Florida Keys Land and Sea Trust
as their graphic artist," he says. "I
had drawn most of my life and
was even given the most talented
award in high school for the fact
that I could draw. When I started
to fish here in the Keys, that is
when I started merging my talent
with the fish that swim around
the Florida Keys."
"I hung out and fished with
just about everybody who was
down there at the time like Larry
Bell, Randy Rode, Al Hipple,
Steve Phillips and all of the gang.
I fished, was the mate, captain, or
used any reason to jump aboard."
He says, "Art and fishing are
the two things I really love to do.
It's kind of like dating Miss
Universe as well as the runner-up
- you don't care .which one you
have dinner with. To this day, if
someone says that they need a
jumping swordfish drawn for a
tournament, I've never been like
ugh, I got to get that done. My art
has never been work to me; it's
always been something I love to
do."
Asked if that holds true when
the winds are light and variable,
Suroviec says, "No, absolutely
not. My first and foremost pas-
sion is at the end of the rod and
reel and not the end of a pencil."


T Some
more of his
observa-
tions:
"My

; f favorite
fish to
draw are
nr sharks.
They are
boring. No
scales and
all one
Cal Sutphin color. You
cou ld
never compare a bull shark to a
bull dolphin."
"My favorite fish to draw
and simultaneously catch is the
snook. There are a lot of guys
who draw dolphin but not a lot of
guys who draw snook well."
"I entered a Christmas ball
competition .in Islamorada where
different artists paint balls and
then [they are] auctioned for char-
ities. I won the best classic design
for the flats slam I painted and
come to find out after the fact that
all of the best artists had entered.
I even beat ,Guy Harvey, which is
quite an accomplishment."
"I have a problem with new
fish artists who don't know
which side of the boat port is, or
stem. All they think they have to
do is draw a picture of a fish, put
it on canvas and they are a fish
artist. My [problem] with that is
if experience was for sale, then
everyone would have some."
Hands down, my favorite
artist is Al Barnes. If I were a zil-
lionaire, I would have many of
his paintings. I met him at the
Miami Boat Show and him and I
spent a lifetime together, one
hour talking fishing and painting.
He knows what he paints and it


shows in his paintings."
"I feel that I am very
diverse when it comes to my art.
I can paint a mural, oil, cartoon,
pencil, or anything. I can paint a
sailfish just as well as I can paint
the news team on a 14-by-48-foot
billboard."
"Capt. Reese Lewis is tough
to beat in a tournament. He's a
frigate bird on the -water. We've
won a lot of tournaments together.
I've seen him work a bird for 45-
minutes knowing it was on a fish
just from the bird's movements.
Most everyone else, including
me, would have given up."
"I've been blessed to be
able to do my work very fast.
Someone asks me for a leaping
sailfish on Tuesday, and
Thursday, I call them to tell them
it's done. When that guy says that
he has a problem paying my costs
for only two days work, I reply
that you are buying my talent, not
my time."
"I have a piece called 'Long
Key Bridge' which has a snook,
tarpon and mangrove snapper in
front of a shopping cart. I partic-
ularly like this one because those
fish don't know a shopping cart is
trash. To them, it's a piece of
structure. I imagine a fisherman
having only an 8-inch mangrove
snapper to show for his day of
fishing, taking his fishing cart
and throwing it off the bridge."
"I've always enjoyed fish-
ing with Randy Rode. Even on
days where there is nothing going
on, he always made it interesting.
A lot of folks don't know but he
has a master's in marine biology.
He's not the typical go back to the
dock, crack the bottle, drink 'til
10 o'clock, pass out, and do it all
over again the next day type of
charter captain."

Hit the flats
or go far out,

It's over. Not the fishing, not
the diving, not the boating, just
the rush of all of these activities
from visitors.
The Labor Day weekend
marks the traditional end to the
tourist season in the Keys. It's
when most of the motel rates
drop. It's when you can trans-
verse the islands with relatively
little traffic. It's when you can go
to the grocery store quickly and
your only hold-up is that just
about everyone you see, you rec-
ognize.
The last big push of the sum-
mer is just behind us, and with it
came a flurry of activity on the
water for both fishing and diving.
The reports of the catches were
very mixed.


Divers

many were
-able to
Dave Navarro search their
favorite
honey holes without too much
trouble. I know the bridges were
loaded with more divers than
anything else. Tides were right
for this endeavor, so many were
pleased.
The fishing was similar. Some
were very happy with the catches
they had. And most were either
fishing well offshore or at the
reef in the evenings.


During the daytime, the reef
or, for the most part, any type of
bottom fishing was somewhat
slow. Mostly it has been due to
the high water temperatures.
The exception has been the
flats. Plenty of bonefish, permit
and tarpon have been around but
here again, it is best early in the
day. As the heat builds up during
the day, the fish display more
sense than the fishermen by
heading to cooler areas.
The best fishing offshore has
been well out. This has been the
pattern for several weeks now
and is standard for this time of
year. The best weeds, bird activi-
ty, amounts of debris and fish
have been more than 20 miles
beyond the reef line. This is not
to say there is nothing inside of
this area; just not consistent
numbers of fish.
There's been a good run of

Elusive snook tough to catch but worth it


NAVARRO / From 18

wahoo, and some very large
ones. The best success with them
is using a lure.
Also, quite a few tunas have
been pushing through, with most
being skipjack but plenty of
blackfin, too. And the big bonita
have made their appearance in
waters from 150 to 400 feet deep.
The reef still is good, mostly I


think because the hot water in the
bay has made the snapper reluc-
tant to move back there. What
has happened is mangrove fish-
ing all along the reef has been the
best in a long time. Also good is
yellowtail, mutton and grouper.
Big lanes and hogfish have
been quite prevalent throughout
the top patches of coral along the
reef. Live shrimp have been tak-
ing them very well.
Along Hawk Channel and the


inner patches, the story is about
the same: Good fishing in spots
but you have to look for them.
Use your fish finder and look for
the areas of broken or raised bot-
tom that will most likely hold
fish. The bridge channels have
been mixed in results with some
good areas of, snapper but not
every day.
One activity around nearshore
waters as well as the bridge chan-
nels is the opening of snook sea-


son. This elusive fish can be as
frustrating to catch as dating, but
for those that enjoy the fight as
well as the taste, just as reward-
ing.
Snook is a favorite fish of
many anglers for their jumping
ability as well as excellent flavor.
Plugs, Rapala lures and live baits
are the favorites of local anglers
for these mostly nocturnal feed-
ers.
Well, for those of us that are


left in the Keys, here we are in
September, the month of the year
with the greatest fear of summer
squalls. It makes many of the
old-time locals that have seen
quite a few of them a little tense.
Just keep an eye on things.
