Two stations are singled out


GAS / From I

tions at some facilities.
What happens to pump prices
remains to be seen. Not even
local gasoline retailers can say.
"Prices at the stations are
based on what it costs to buy
from the supplier," said Hilda
Niles from the offices of Dion's
Quik Mart, which has stations
throughout the Keys. "That's the
industry standard."
"Our margins haven't
changed," Niles said. "We live
and shop here so we always try to
be conscientious."
Dion's has not received any
indication its deliveries will be
interrupted, she said.
State officials vowed this
week to investigate a wave of
consumer complaints from across


Florida about a spike in the price
of gasoline.
Nineteen of 1,494 statewide
complaints received by a Florida
price-gouging hotline came from
Monroe County as of mid-day
Tuesday.
Two Keys stations the Tom
Thumb store at U.S. 1 and
Sombrero Beach Boulevard in
Marathon and the Dion's on
Flagler Avenue in Key West -
were reported by more than one
person, according to a spokes-
woman for the office of state
Attorney General Bill
McCollum.
McCollum on Tuesday issued
subpoenas to four oil companies
seeking "documentation ... detail-
ing the purchase prices the com-
panies paid for gasoline sold at
their Florida retail stores."
Investigators are trying to


determine if the retail prices
reflect the companies' cost.
Florida law prohibits "exces-
sive" price increases in "essential
items" during a declared emer-
gency "unless the increases in the
amount charged are attributable
to additional costs incurred by
those supplying the items,"
according to the Florida
Department of Agriculture and
Consumer Services.
Keys prices generally seem to
track Tuesday's statewide aver-
age as reported by the AAA Daily
Fuel Gauge Report: $3.87 for
regular unleaded, $4.08 for mid-
grade and $4.16 for premium.
That's about 12 cents per gal-
lon higher than on Aug. 17, and
more than a $1 per gallon higher
than in September 2007 ($2.80
for regular unleaded).


He's still in the race


WILLIAMS / From I

a Democrat, in November.
"They said even if I'm in jail,
I'm still a viable candidate
because there are no felonies I am
convicted of. I'm not concerned
about my ability to be a candi-
date, but I am concerned with
being able to campaign," he said.
Williams also said he's suspi-
cious about the timing of his
arrest, right after being thrown
into the race against Lord-Papy, a
16-year Mosquito Control com-
missioner.
"I think they're going to put
me in jail until after the election,"
he said.
But Williams acknowledged
being late for and not showing up
for the drug tests is his own fault.
But also said he plans to tell
Circuit Court Judge Mark Jones
Thursday that he did not violate
the terms of his probation.
"I believe I was honoring the
terms of the contract. Being that I
called three times en route, I
believe I could have taken the test
and the people would have been
just'" a few minutes late. They
were not going home at 2 [p.m.],"
Williams said.
Williams' attorney, Richard
Wunsch, said he feels it's unlike-
ly Williams will be forced to
serve jail time because of the vio-
lation. Wunsch said Gaither
acknowledges Wilhlams was just
minutes late in a memo detailing


the violation.
"It was Julie that signed it and
she does acknowledge that he
showed up at 2:04 p.m. and that
at that point his position was that
their clock was fast," Wunsch
said, adding .it's typical for the
probation office to be stringent
with appointment times.
The result of the hearing, even
if Williams is forced to serve jail
time, will apparently not affect
his candidacy forthe Mosquito:

Williams hasn't been adjudi-

therefore still allowed to run,
according to Monroe County

Sawyer.
"Until we get some kind of
notice saying the status of his.
adjudication has changed and he
doesn't appeal, which I doubt any
of that happens, he's still on the

Angler goes off the deep end


Crew had to
tie him up to
control him
By RYAN McCARTHY
rmccarthy@keynoter.com

A confrontation over a
woman Saturday night ended up
with! a Miami Springs man
hogtied on the deck of a com-
mercial fishing boat off the
Upper Keys and facing criminal
charges.
U.S.. Coast Guard Machinery
Technician Joseph Tankersley
was the lead officer on a boat
that responded to an emergency
call from the Sea King a little
before midnight.
He said Alexander Baquero,
41, was reported to be in the
water but instead was bound
at thb feet on the deck of the
boat'when he arrived.
"He was just acting pretty
erratic,-kind of talking about a
bunch of different things,"
Tankersley said. "Basically, we
detained .him, evaluated his
medical condition and kept him
as calm as possible to get his


side of the
story and
secured the
scene."
According
to the Monroe
County
Sheri ff 's
Office,
BAQUERO Baq u ero
BAQUERO became angry
with another customer while
aboard the Sea King four miles
southeast of Plantation Key, at
Crocker Reef. Baquero accused
the man of looking at his girl-
friend.
That's when Baquero report-
-edly went off the deep end.
Witnesses said he threw two
patrons' tackle boxes in the
ocean, tried to throw the man he
was arguing with overboard and
eventually jumped off the boat
himself.
The tackle boxes -were val-
ued at $1,700 and the one
belonging to Islamorada resi-
dent David Ragland contained
keys, a wallet, a watch, sun-
glasses, assorted fishing gear
and his cell phone.


Ragland couldn't be reached
for comment because he longer
has that phone.
His voicemail message: "Hi,
you've reach Dave.
Unfortunately, my phone's at
the bottom of the ocean. Leave
a voicemail and I'll listen to it
and get back to you as soon as I
can."
According to Sean Reser, a
mate on the Sea King, Baquero
appeared to be drunk within 10
minutes of leaving the dock and
was arguing with his girlfriend
all night.
Another mate, Michael
Biggie, said it took the crew. 45
minutes to get Baquero back on
board the boat once he jumped
off. At that point, according to
Biggie, Baquero attacked him
and even attempted to grab his
fillet knife. Biggie also claimed
Baquero at some point threw a
bucket of chum at him.
The man that Baquero
allegedly attempted to throw off
the boat refused to press
charges, Tankersley said.
Baquero was charged with
two counts of larceny, one
count of battery and one count
of disturbing the peace.

$1M sliced from '09 budget


Tax increase
still stands
near 9 percent
By LARRY KAHN
lkahn@keynoter.com

The Monroe County adminis-
tration has found $1 million
more to cut from the proposed
budget for 2008-09, but an
increase in the millage rate still
stands at 8.63 percent.
Comparing the budget to a
sailboat, County Administrator
Roman Gastesi said, "Right now
we've just kept it afloat" rather
than progressed.
"We've applied a tourniquet;
the bleeding has stopped," he
said during a budget hearing
Monday at the Marathon
Government Center during
which just one member of the
public spoke.
Gastesi says he achieved sav-
ings this month by removing
$1.44 million from the county's
group insurance plan for August
and September. Another cut was
$120,000 due to the elimination
of the position of community


services director. -.
However, there was also an
increase of $636,000 to buy out
employees.
Overall, the proposed general
fund budget for 2009 now stands
at $85.9 million. That's down
from an initial budget of $87
million that was adopted in July.


This year's
budget is
$79 million.


This year's budget is $79 mil-
lion.
SMonday, commissioners cited
everything for not taxing enough
in past years to expensive con-
struction projects for the need to
increase spending.
"There were many things we
should have been doing in the
past," Commissioner Dixie
Spehar said, referring to build-
ings under construction or just
completed such as the Freeman


Justice Center in Key West and
the, new coroner's office on
Crawl Key.
Additionally, to keep taxes
down in the past, the county
used its reserves to finance day-
to-day operations. That's no way
to budget and will no longer be
done, commissioners and
Gastesi agreed.
In July, the County
Commission approved a millage
rate of 3.234, up 18 percent from
the current aggregate millage of
2.73.
The adopted rate for 2009
would mean the average proper-
ty owner in unincorporated
Monroe County is looking at an
.average tax bill of $323 per
$100,000 in value. For a house
valued at $350,000, the bill
would be $1,130.
The owner of the -same
$350,000 house paid $956 in
county taxes this year.
There are two more budget
hearings where the County
Commission can lower-the mill-
age. They're set for 5:05 p.m.
today at the Harvey Government
Center in Key West and 5:05
p.m. Sept. 24 at the Key Largo
library.

Keys Opinion


Ike's winds, water

fuel panic buying

When Florida Gov. Charlie Crist declared a state of emer-
gency on Sept. 5 in advance of Hurricane Ike, many scratched
their heads and wondered why.
' This week, at least part of the answer came in the form of
subpoenas issued by the state attorney general against four
fuel dealers as Florida investigates thousands of complaints
about price gouging on gas.
It's hard to separate fact from fiction when it comes to track-
ing down the cause for price swings at the pump. But it was
pretty clear on Friday that Ike's direct aim at all those refiner-
ies on the Texas coast triggered panic buying by motorists all
across the country.
.When prices spiked above $5 a gallon in Tallahassee, before
Ike made landfall, it likely drove home to state officials that
something wasn't right.
Even after it became clear that refineries in the Houston area
were spared any major damage, panic buying continued in
some parts of the country.
Gas prices here in the Keys, as reported on Page 1 of today's
Keynoter, ranged all over the place.
Stations selling regular unleaded for $3.83 a gallon on
Saturday morning had raised the price to $3.93 later the same
day. More price increases were posted on Monday and
Tuesday as semis delivered the latest gas supplies, which we
get from Port Everglades in Broward County.
As soon as the gas tankers unloaded, pump prices rose in
some cases another 5 cents up to 9 cents a gallon.
Florida Attorney General.Bill McCollum has issued subpoe-_
nas to compare what retailers already had in their tanks at the
pre-Ike wholesale prices and what their latest shipment cost.
State law forbids price gouging during a declared state of
emergency, which is why the governor's pronouncement Sept.
5 is-relevant in this investigation.
Pat Morricca, president of the Gasoline Retailers
Association of Florida, told the Sun-Sentinel on Tuesday that
suppliers manipulated the market: "It's unfair to our retailers*
[to be] accused by-consumers [of] ripping them off."
Indeed, some stations in the Lower Keys, which usually
have among the highest prices in the Keys, were still sporting
prices below $3.90 a gallon on Tuesday. With tourists not yet
back, they were still selling off their pre-Ike inventory.
Yet another example of how confusing all this is for con-
sumers.
To report any suspicions of gouging on gas prices, call the
state's Consumer Services hotline at (800) 435-7352.

Hospital workers are heroes working through the storm


EDITOR:
Saturday's Keynoter article on the emer-
gency rooms "secretly" staying open during
Hurricane Ike forgot one thing: You forgot to
thank the professionals that braved the ele-
ments to keep the ER open. Shame on you for
trying to write a negative story out of some-
thing so positive.
Your article didn't mention that when a
mandatory evacuation is ordered, hospital
employees and physicians are ordered to evac-
uate, too. Your article didn't mention that util-
ity companies won't go out to repair downed
power lines if ER services are not available.
Our plan was to close the hospital as we
were directed. By Sunday, we had evacuated
our patients. We closed to all in-patient servic-
es, including surgery. The county was evacu-
ating. We could have easily closed our doors
but felt that we needed some emergency serv-
ices while the evacuation was taking place.
We decided to keep our ER open until
Monday morning. Any patient needing surgery


or admission would be transferred to Miami..
Come Sunday evening, the storm was slow-
ly changing direction so we talked with physi-
cians and staff and decided to keep the ER
open until Monday evening. And so it contin-
ued we decided to keep the ER open shift
by shift, working with the Monroe County
Emergency Operations Center to ensure our
staff was safe. If anyone had called 911 for an
emergency, they would have been brought to
the ER.
I want to sincerely thank the health-care
professionals that volunteered to staff the ERs
during the storm. It would have been easier to
evacuate elsewhere to ride out the storm. They
chose to make themselves available to those
in the community that cannot leave during
.times of impending disaster. They are all
heroes.

Check. candidates' records on women's health


EDITOR: -
People who are concerned about women's
health and reproductive rights should take a
close look at the candidates running for presi-

EDITOR:
Good news and bad news about Fannie
Mae and Freddie Mac. The good news is that
someone stepped in and rescued them. The
bad news is, it was the government.
Many years ago, David Maxwell, one of
the top men from the U.S. Department of
Housing and Urban Development, took over
a sagging Fannie Mae and turned it back into
a well-oiled machine. Fannie Mae set the
guidelines lenders were to follow to have a
marketable product, good loans. When
lenders know they must qualify the borrow-
ers and the-property, everything runs smooth.
We are witnessing today what happens when
risky loans go on the books.
The CEOs who steered Fannie and Freddie
onto the rocks will pocket millions in exit
dollars. Americans should be looking for tar
and feathers. Will the government do as
usual to these agencies, over-staff them with
overpaid and under qualified personnel? I
hope they are looking for another David

By SEAN KINNEY

The 2008 presidential cam-
paign has come to Key West via
a Barack Obama campaign
headquarters across from the
Harvey Government Center on
Truman Avenue.
The Democrat's office
opened Labor Day and cam-
paign spokesman Alejandro
Miyar said, "Despite bad weath-
er, we managed to have 50 peo-
ple there."
The Key West presidential
campaign headquarters is one of
more than 40 throughout the
state. The Republican McCain
camp has not set up a headquar-
ters in Monroe County.
In 2004, John Kerry's cam-
paign had a Keys office, as did
Ross Perot when he ran for pres-
ident in 1996.

"We're expecting a lot of

The Obama office has a field

Happy Birthday
Buddy,
We love you,

We little knew that morning that
God was going to call your name.
In life we loved-you dearly,
in death we do the same.
It broke our hearts to lose you,
you did not go alone;
for part of us went with you,
the day God called you home.
You left us peaceful memories,
your love is still our guide;
and although we cannot see you,
you are always at'our side.
Our family chain is broken,
and nothing seems the same;
but as God calls us
one by one the chain
will link again.

Man fends off robbers,
two jailed on felonies

A Key West man fought off
two men trying to rob him at
gunpoint Friday night, and now
the two face felony charges stem-
ming from the incident.
Bradley Cooper, 21, of Stock
Island is charged with armed rob-
bery and aggravated assault.
Norman Bruein, 32, is charged
with being a principal to armed
robbery. A third man is being
sought.
Key West police say Robert
Lopez was leaving his Duck
Avenue house Friday when the
three walked up to him, and that
Cooper shoved a pistol under his
chin while repeatedly demanding
he open the door to his home.
- Lopez rebuffed them and the
three fled, police say. Cooper
was later found in water near
Cow Key Channel. Bruein, from
Rockland Key, was arrested
Saturday at his house. Police say
he stole the gun from a vehicle
parked across the street from his
home.

Key West bike deal
was no deal at all

A Selma, Ala., woman says
she was swindled in an attempt to
buy a repossessed motorcycle
from a company apparently
based in Key West.
Matthew Helmerich, spokes-
man for the Monroe County State
Attorney's Office, says the
woman called last week to say she
wired several thousand dollars, as
instructed by a representative for
www.bikerepo.com, with the
promise that her motorcycle
would be delivered to her in
Alabama. The bike never showed.
State Attorney's Office inves-
tigators, along with the FBI's
Key West office, determined the
Key West address listed on the
Web site was fictitious.
Subpoenaed telephone records
showed the Key West phone
number the woman called to buy
the motorcycle was forwarded to
a telephone in Luxembourg,
Helmerich said.
Shortly after the FBI closed
down the bikerepo.com site, a
look-alike site listing a physical
"mail forwarding" address in
Islamorada appeared. Authorities
are investigating whether that
site is legitimate.

Dorm up for more talks


By SEAN KINNEY
skinney@keynoter.com


The Florida Keys
Educational Foundation, the
fundraising branch of Florida
Keys Community College, is
scheduled to meet Thursday to
try to figure out its role in the
college's planned dormitory
construction.
"It isn't something the foun-
dation has addressed yet,"
Director Erica MacWilliams
said.
But it does appear to be off
the table for now.
"This is going to consume us
and we don't have time to be
consumed," said Ann
Henderson, who sits on both the
college and foundation board
and acts as a liaison between the
two.
Gov. Charlie Crist gave the
go-ahead to the dormitory proj-
ect on June 23, when he signed


legislation granting the college a
building code exemption that
would allow a dorm 45 feet high,
10 feet higher than Key West
code allows.
At its meeting Aug. 25, the
college board discussed possible
financing for a dorm. Funding
would have to be channeled
through a direct-support organi-
zation like the foundation.
However, the foundation,
which would oversee the financ-
ing and construction of the proj-
ect, has not met since June 5.
College President Jill
Landesberg-Boyle is trying to
find alternative ways to start the
wheels turning.
Possibilities include working
with the state to fund a dorm
through the college or setting up
a second support group that
would work solely on the dorm
project, Landesberg-Boyle said.


"It's challenging,"
Landesberg-Boyle said. "We've
come so far with so little." In
lieu of counting on state money,
Landesberg-Boyle said it's
imperative to "foster outside
support."
Jim Hendrick, a foundation
board member, said the founda-
tion might not get too heavily
involved in building a dorm.
"There may be a shift in the
approach," he said, identifying
the possibilities that
Landesberg-Boyle mentioned:
Working with the state or start-
ing a second support group.
The foundation undertakes a
variety of fundraising activities
but Hendrick identified a "reluc-
tance to make fundraising efforts
so diffuse" as to include a resi-
dence hall.
The foundation board meets
at noon Thursday on the college
campus on Stock Island.

The Marathon Super Boat Grand Prix used to be a premier event that drew thousands of tourists
to Marathon. But it's not what it once was, and organizers say they don't know if they can pull
it off next year with the $25,000 grant they're being given by the TDC.


Tourism takes a nosedive


Fewer heads in

According to the Monroe

Council. Marathon is the only."


district to see bed tax revenues
decline for every month this fis-
cal year compared with the last.
The Middle Keys district, which
stretches from the west end of the
Seven Mile Bridge to the Long
Key Bridge, is down 12.4 percent
from last year's $2.16 million
total. That's nearly $240,000,
with two months worth of rev-
enue not yet reported.
Coconut Cay Resort & Marina
owner Jim Rhyne said business
has never been slower at his
Marathon hotel. He said the. city


has always been a family friendly
and affordable destination, but
that the market it caters to is feel-
ing the pinch of a struggling
economy more than any other
right now.
"I think it's going to\ be
absolutely shocking when the
next numbers come out the
disparity with what's going on
here in Marathon," Rhyne said of
the TDC bed tax report. "The

City has identity crisis

than if we had been hit by -a
storm."
Rhyne recommends "guerilla
tactics" to help draw tourists to
the Middle Keys in the short
term.
"Something needs to be put
into place to get people here
today and tomorrow and the next
day. Other than that, I don't see a
whole lot of good happening and
we have three more months of
off-season right now," he said.
TDC Director Harold Wheeler
said Hawks Cay Resort on Duck
Key being offline for several
months to remodel is the main
reason bed tax revenues declined
in the Middle Keys this year.
"Hawks Cay was supposed to
start their renovation in August
and finish up by the first of
December, but the project didn't
start until January. That meant ...
the resort was closed during the
high season," he said.
But Rhyne said while Hawks
Cay does generate bed tax rev-
enues for Marathon, the impact
stops there.
"Hawks Cay is an all-inclu-
sive resort. Someone who stays
there does everything there," he
said.
Another issue, debated by the
Marathon City Council recently,
involves' .how best to draw
tourists to the Middle Keys using


allocated TDC funds. The
Marathon Super Boat Grand
Piix, which some council mnem-
bers have called a "non-event,"
was awarded $75,000 this year
and another $25,000 next year.
Councilwoman Marilyn
Tempest sits on -the Middle Keys
TDC District, Advisory
Committee.
"It just wasn't like it was in
,the beginning," she said, adding.
it's questionable the event will
-even take place next year. Local
race. organizer Randy Mearns
told the DAC that $25,000 might
not be enough funding to hold the
_race.
Keith Douglass, the executive
director of Crane -Point
Hammock, sits on the DAC with.
Tempest. He's supported the boat
races in the past, but said market-
ing efforts should be concentrat--
ed on the city itself.
"We need to rethink why peo-
ple would want to come to the
Middle Keys," Douglass said.
The -tourism industry is hurt-
ing throughout the Keys, but
Marathon is feeling the crunch
worse than any other place. Some
people, including Greater
Marathon Chamber of
Commerce Director Daniel
Samess, say it's time for the city
to rethink its image.
"We don't mention fishing,
diving or anything related to the
water; nothing related to the four'
great attractions we have here,"

Samess said of the heart of the
Keys moniker. "If you put your-
self in 4the shoes of potential
tourists, how does that sell
Marathon?"
Samess' push for a new slogan
is the latest chapter in what
Wheeler said has been a long-
term identity crisis in the Middle
Keys. It's been known as the
middle of the Keys, the heart of
the Keys and as both a family and
boating destination.
"The identity of Marathon has
changed more than any other
Keys destinations in the last 12
years," Wheeler said. "They. all
sounded reasonable at the time,
but you can't just continue to
change it."

Bash is for the birds

'Hippies' revisit the 1960s for fundraiser
Keynoter Staff


Pirates turned into hippies
Saturday to help native birds get
back in the air.
The Bird Bash benefit, hosted
by community organization
Pirates on the Water, adopted a
'60s theme for its annual benefit
that attracted nearly a full house
to the Key Largo Lions Club.
"We came within a handful of
people to a sellout," said Sue.
Finney, a Pirates organizer. "We
were very happy with the crowd."
Ticket sales and events includ-
ing silent and live auctions were
expected to raise more than
$16,000 for- the Florida Keys
Wild Bird Center in Tavernier.
Special guest Don Noe, for-
mer Channel 10 meteorologist,
and Pam Godfrey handled the
live auction.
Participants were asked to
flash back to the 1960s in party
attire, which swamped the Lions
Club with hippies and peaceniks.
Richard Dunn was tapped for
best costume in a contest judged
by Noe, Spencer Slate, Skip
Bradeen and Chris Sante.
Disk jockey "Big Daddy" Joe
Marcum provided a program of
music suitable for the theme.
Scott Stoky and the Florida Keys
Youth Sports Foundation pre-
pared a fish-fry dinner sponsored
by a number of local businesses.
"Everything was very well
done," Finney said. "It was a
great time."
Pirates on the Water, with a
membership of more than 300,
raises money for local community
groups and charities when not
planning boat trips. The group
adopted the Florida Keys Wild
Bird Center as a cause after
Hurricane Wilma caused serious
damage to the bayside facility that
houses and treats native birds.
The Pirates' logo is a parrot,
noted Finney. "We like birds."
Founded in 1984, the Florida
Keys Wild Bird Center currently
tends to more than 100 birds.
"This time of year, activities
like the Bird Bash mean survival
for the center," Operations
Manager Bruce Horn said. "It's
always a slow time but particular-
ly so this year because of the hur-
ricane evacuations."

outswims Conchs


But Stokes looks
good in opening
meet of year
By DICK WAGNER
Keynoter Contributor

Although both the Key
West High School girls and
boys swimming teams were
dominated Friday afternoon
by St.- Andrews of Boca
Raton the girls lost, 107-
61, the boys, 86-68 there
were a few bright spots for
the Conchs.
"We did good for what
we could do," assistant
coach Judd Wise said after


the season-opening meet at
the Florida Keys
Community College aquatic
center.
Senior. Travis Stbkes was
the only individual winner
for the Conchs. He won the
50-yard freestyle and the
100 free with personal-best
times of 23.92 and 54.70
seconds, respectively.
Stokes was also on the
winning 200 free relay team,
with Brandon Cyr, Ben
Covan and Clay Wagner,
and on the winning 400 free
relay team with Cyr, Covan
and Max Kohler.
'The Conch girls team of


Noelle Lark, Effie Ford,
Alessandra Hally and Emily
Hepworth won the 400 free
relay.
Hepworth, a Key West
native who transferred from
Oregon (her father is in the
Coast Guard), also finished
third in the 100 backstroke
and fourth in the 500
freestyle, 15 seconds ahead
of teammate Rachel Kohler.
"I was disappointed but I
need to remind myself that
.it's a new season,"
Hepworth said before jump-
ing back into the pool and
joining her teammates for
photos and frolicking. "It's
more about acclimating."


Hurricanes stifled


CONCHS / From 15

But' before the 1-1 Conchs
get to district play a week
from Friday at Monsignor
Pace, they will face a winless
Florida Christian team that
should play right into the
hands of their aggressive
defense. The Patriots have
been outscored, 70-0, in two
games.
Friday, in a game that
stretched to nearly three
hours, Coral Shores never
threatened to score, against
the Conchs.
The Hurricanes ran only
two plays in Key West territo-
ry, never getting farther than
the 46-yard line. Quarterback
Chris Rini was constantly
harassed by a defense led by
Michael Sohi, Kevin Flores
and Chris Haia that recorded


seven sacks.
Key West's touchdowns
came on a 2-yard run by Sohi
and an 8-yard run by Alfred
Rahming. The Conchs should
have had two more TDs, but
Sohi fumbled going into the
end zone and an illegal-block
penalty nullified what would
have been a 20-yard punt
return for a score by J.P.
Malott.
Conch quarterback
Stephen Jones completed
nine of 18 passes for more
than 100 yards. He also threw
an interception and lost a
fumble.
Coral Shores, which fell to
0-2, will play its first home
game of the regular season at
7:30 p.m. Friday against
Westminster Christian, which
defeated Florida Christian,
28-0, last week.

younger players.
Childress said the combina-
tion of Freeman and the
Dolphins' solid offensive line
made for a potent rushing attack.
"We powered the ball straight
ahead. Any time you can run the
ball like that run it," he said.
The Dolphins opened the
scoring midway through the first
quarter after stopping the Lions
on downs to open the game.
Ross threw a touchdown pass to


F


senior wide receiver Hector
Vicoiso to give the Dolphins a
7-0 lead.
After stopping the Lions on
downs twice more, Freeman
broke off his longest run of the
game, a 73-yard touchdown giv-
ing the Dolphins a 14-0 lead.
The Lions responded by put-
ting together a long scoring
drive and trailed 14-6 after a
failed two-point conversion
attempt.


Marathon looked to have
answered back immediately
when Ross rolled out to his right
and hit senior receiver Angelo
Hidalgo in stride for an apparent
touchdown. But the play was
called back because Ross was
past the line of scrimmage when
he released the pass.
The Dolphins' defense forced
a Lions punt, -after which
Freeman immediately ran for
another long touchdown to give.

WATER RSPOE TS
On the Bnech in Islamoraaen -


hours after he had teed off
before a Key West Golf Club
audience that included an
iguana, an ibis and a Muscovy
duck, a shoeless wonder
named Blake Oropeza walked
off the 18th green with an 83
and an amusing tale to tell.
"I was in the lake on 3,"


said the Key West High
School senior, who had the
low score in the Conchs' vic-
tory over La Salle and
Marathon. "I took my shoes
and socks off, chipped out and
sank a 40-foot putt for a
seven. I played the rest of the
way in my socks."
"Blisters," he explained,
looking down at his bare feet.
To coach Nora
Laubenstein, who was waiting
in a cart, he said in a pleased
manner, "I was 12 over on the
front nine, one over on the
back nine 47-36."


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



RAISE air conditioning thermostats
to 78 degrees or warmer during summer
111months. 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.

"Let's do 37-36,"
Laubenstein said. "You've got
to trust yourself. You know
this course."
Oropeza's score was one
stroke better than Casey
Dion's, two better than Joseph
Arazi's and four better than
Daniel Magil's as the Conchs'
339 easily bested La Salle's
418 and Marathon's 455.
Marathon's Josh Gratton
walked disconsolately to the
clubhouse after shooting a 93,.
five strokes behind teammate
Joe Pratt. Gratton had a stud in
his nose, a blue-banded


Panama hat on his head, and
he wore plaid shorts.
"He marches to the beat of
a different drummer," said
Kevin Freeman, the Dolphins'
new golf coach "He's my No.
1, a good kid."
Accustomed to yelling as
Marathon's basketball coach
and as its former volleyball
coach, Freeman was strug-
gling to adjust to golf's .quiet
decorum. But amid all the
sunshine, wildlife and green
beauty, he couldn't have been
happier. "I feel like a golf
pro," he said.


Young Dolphins a bit nervous


CROSS COUNTRY/ From 15

cross-country meet, 29:46,
followed by Joanna Lyne in
16th (30:28), Ariel Reider-
Moore in 20th (32:44) and
Judelys Valladares in 23rd
(35:24).
Marathon coach Mike
Lettau said the team is a work
in progress with all the new


faces this season.
"We didn't have great
times,. but it was good to get
out there for the first time.
They were nervous, and hav-
ing only four returning letter-
men is.tough," Lettau said.
In the boys, race, Coral
Shores' top finisher was Miles
Turton in fifth place at 21:43.
But with Tom Mendez coming
in sixth (22:04), Dylan Valdes
eighth (22:36), Wil Mulkeen
10th (23:03) and Jonathan
Bogue llth (23:12), the
Hurricanes were able to post a
winning score.
Florida Christian, 46,


Marathon, 79, and Westwood,
107, followed the Hurricane
boys.
Jhonathan Guzman was the

enth overall at 22:12. Thomas

Sheviin wins the Lucerne


The conditions
hardly ideal
in Everglades

You could say the Herman
Lucerne Memorial is the most
unique tournament in the Keys.
To win in years past, you had
to have caught and released seven
fish that are known to inhabit the
Everglades: Snook, tarpon, red-
fish, sea trout, snapper, black
drum and bonefish.
Now with a rule modification,
the winning angler is the one with
the most overall inches of the
most species. The tournament
boasts more than $75,000 in cash
and prizes, including a Maverick
Micro-skiff complete with
Yamaha outboard and trailer.
The tournament, in its eighth
year, celebrates the memory of
one of the most knowledgeable
anglers who has ever fished the
Everglades, Lucerne. According
to tournament host Rick Murphy,
who hosts "Sportsman's
Adventures" on SunSports,
Lucerne was the first cbnserva-
tionist he ever ran into that fished
Everglades National Park.
"Herman made me always
smash the barbs on my Mirrolure
when fishing for snook in Hells
Bay because of a better release
and not to harm the fish. I mean,
in the '80s, that kind of thinking


Cal Sutphin


w a s
unheard
o f "
Murphy
said.
The last
n a m e
Murphy
popped up
more than
once in this
installment
of the
Lucerne, as
11-year-
old Ridge


Murphy had the tournament of
his short lifetime.
Ridge, the youngest of Rick's
two sjns, won the Junior
Champion award fishing with
family friend Capt. Matt Loftin of
Homestead.
"I wanted my son Ridge to
stand alone. If he had fished with
me and won, it's natural for peo-
ple to say that he won because his
dad put him on all of those fish,"
Rick Murphy says. Ridge is a real
student of fishing. To him, it's not
about how much or how big the
fish are that he catches, but more
the understanding of how to catch
them. Ridge really likes to figure
out why the fish are doing what
their doing."
He adds, "My son is so quiet
that you think he just isn't paying
attention until he asks a question
that I know guides who have


been fishing for 20 years would-
n't have thought of."
Bal Harbor resident Barry
Shevlin and his guide Capt. Brian
Williams bested 37 other teams
and took home the championship
in what he called "very trying
conditions."
"With the near passage of
Hurricane Ike, we had planned to
fish in the north Everglades. We
ended up out front due to the con-
ditions. We spent more time run-
ning than fishing it seemed,"
Shevlin said.
He reigned supreme by catch-
ing five of the eligible seven
species and tallying the most
points in the process. "I've been
the bridesmaid many times, so
this victory means a lot," Shevlin
says.
For the first time in tourna-
ment history, proceeds benefit
Everglades National Park proj-
ects.
"If they had four tournaments
that benefit the park a year, I
would fish every one," Shevlin
said. "They need to rebuild what
they had in regards to lodging.
Some of the best memories I've
ever had was the weekends spent
with the family in those cabins in
Flamingo. Now they don't have
those anymore due to the hurri-
cane damage years ago. We need
to help them out because they are
terribly under funded."

eW designed the Palace Gardens in
Homestead as a high-quality
Assisted Living Community. It
incorporates what is best about the Florida
Keys, and we have changed the myths people
have when they think about senior living.

The grounds are spacious and beautiful. The
care is great. The staff is great. The food is


great. The atmosphere is pure Florida Keys.
Home health visits, therapy, and doctor visits
take place on site. Residents have privacy, but
nursing assistants are always available just out-
side their door, to help with any need. Younger
Florida Keys residents can bring their parents to
be near them, close enough to visit but not
under the same roof.


Call chael at (877)221-0228for more information and a tour.
