BIG LOSS:This 65-foot yacht, the 'Catherine Howard,' caught fire around 4:45 p.m. Saturday
on the oceanside of Marathon due to an apparent mechanical problem. The 1972
Durbeck, just purchased by Keys resident Steven Kocis, was en route from Fort Lauderdale
when the blaze broke out. Two people aboard escaped onto a life raft. The boat partially
sank; plans are to salvage what's salvageable.




4 hope to wear




sheriff's badge


Davis, Peryam
only candidates
with experience
By DAVID GOODHUE
dgoodhue@keysreporter.com

A police captain, a former
DEA agent, a pot advocate and a
business' owner with a severe
mistrust of the cops want your
vote for sheriff.
It isn't the plot of a quirky
comedy or a neo-noir crime
thriller about the eccentricities of
people living in the Florida Keys.
This is the real race for sheriff of


Monroe County.
Most votes likely will go to
Sheriff's Office Capt. Bob
Peryam and Ken Davis, former
Drug Enforcement
Administration resident agent in
charge of the Keys.
However, Sandy Downs, 49, a
Cudjoe Key tree-service owner,
has also waged a serious candida-
cy. She has been intent on show-
ing that her lack of law enforce-
ment experience is actually an
asset because she has no ties to a
system she thinks needs chang-
ing.
"I am beholden to no one. I


owe no favors, I treat all equally,
I am fair and I will listen,"
Downs said.
SAccording to her campaign
Web site, much of Downs' prob-
lems with local police stem from
what she calls harassment of one
of her sons by Keys deputies.
Bob Horan, who works at
Leigh Ann's Coffee House, runs
year after year for various offices
on the marijuana-legalization
platform. His campaigns are usu-
ally more about promoting ideas,
like ditching the war on drugs for
a "war on litter," than they'"are
about actually achieving office.

Trauma


question


divides

Referendum on
medical chopper
focuses on taxes
By DAVID GOODHUE
dgoodhue @ keysreporter.com

Voters countywide will get to
say on Nov. 4 whether they want
to fund a county-operated emer-
gency medical helicopter that
primarily serves the Middle and
Lower Keys.
Supporters say the proposal is
a low-cost way to keep
TraumaStar, the air ambulance
chopper, operating. Critics say it
will tax, the Upper Keys for a
service residents there don't use.
The question near the end of
the ballot is titled "special refer-
endum." The result will advise
the Monroe County Commission
but not force the adoption of a
tax for the service, according to
Mike Rice, Sheriff's Office
finance director. The Sheriff's
Office operates TraumaStar.
County officials say
TraumaStar, which bills patients
for the cost of service, would
have to make about 40 flights a
month to break even without the
tax revenue. The county has pro-
vided trauma helicopter service
since 2002, but officials have had
a harder time justifying the near-
ly $2 million annual expense in
tough economic times, and when
a for-profit company says it's
willing to take over at no cost to
the county.
The ballot initiative has the
backing of the Sheriff's Office
and Monroe County Fire Rescue.
Officials say taxing property
owners below mile marker 95
about $52 a year, and those north
around $27 per year, is the only
way the county can afford to sub-

Sante aims to unseat Higgs


It's new ideas
vs. many years
of experience
By MARGARET MENGE
mmenge@keynoter.com

Chris Sante, the former mayor
of Islamorada, is challenging
Ervin Higgs for the job of proper-
ty appraiser in Monroe County,
saying Higgs doesn't do enough
to investigate homestead exemp-
tion fraud, and that the office is in
need of fresh ideas.
Sante has a lot of ideas.
Sante says if elected, he'll do
seminars on how to use the
office's Web site to look up prop-
erties, run ads in the local news-
papers letting people know about
exemptions for which they might
be eligible, and travel up and
down the Keys with his laptop,
like County Administrator
Roman Gastesi, spending time in
all three offices in Key West,
Marathon and on Plantation Key.
Because sometimes, he says, peo-
ple just want to talk to the boss.
Higgs, he says, told him four
years ago that he was going to
step down. So he enrolled in
classes taught by the state and
now has almost 180 hours of
training under his belt.
But Higgs says Sante misun-
derstood. He says he never told
him he'd step down, and that
when he does decide to retire, he'
doesn't want to pass the mantle to
Sante whom he considers too
political.
"I'm very concerned about
who I turn this over to," he says.
"He [Sante] says he's a broker. I
don't know what that means... I
just think that maybe he's a politi-
cian. He's political. And this job
doesn't call for being political.".
Sante moved to the Upper
Keys from Miami-Dade County
in 1983 and ran for the
Islamorada Village Council in
2002. He was elected in a runoff,
and served for six years, three of
those as mayor.
He's owns a mortgage busi-
ness that he says is doing hardly
any business anymore, and also
owns a trailer park and a pest
control company. But he says
he's committed now to serving as
the county's property appraiser,
and has put others in place to run
his businesses.
Higgs is the longest-serving
elected official in Monroe


IEION 200:

HIGGS


County, and
has been in the
Property
Appraiser's
Office since
1965, when he
ran the office
as the chief
deputy to
then-appraiser
Joe Allen.


When Allen ran for state
Legislature, he got the governor
to appoint Higgs to succeed him.
Higgs became the appraiser in
1976 and has held onto the job for
the past 33 years, serving eight
. four-year
terms.
In an inter-
S' view with -the
Keynoter ear-
lier this
month, Higgs
Declined to be
specific about
how his office
SANTE investigates
homestead exemption fraud.
"My people downstairs is all
connected to computers that's got
information from all over the
country," he said when pressed.
But he gave the Keynoter a piece
of paper that states that his office
has conducted an "in depth"
review of 350 properties with
homestead exemptions, investi-
gating 178 of them. Of those, 98
were found to be qualified home-
steads and 61 were denied the
exemption 19 others were
withdrawn by the property own-
ers.
Higgs points to the doorway to
his large office, on the second
floor of the courthouse on
Whitehead Street. "That's an
open door, I never close it," he
said, telling the Keynoter that
contrary to Sante's claim, he's
more than willing to meet with
anyone who wants to speak to
him personally about a property
issue.
The property appraiser is
responsible primarily for produc-
ing a tax roll that values property
in the county for the purpose of
assessing taxes. Realtors in the
county differ on the job Higgs has
done in recent years, and on the
need for change.
"I'm definitely supporting
Ervin," says Bascom Grooms,
president of the Key West
Chamber of Commerce and the
owner of one of the oldest real


estate firms in the Keys. "He's
got my vote 100 percent."
Grooms says he thinks proper-
ty values on the county's tax roll
are now more accurate than at
any time in the last 11 years, and
that the staff in the Property
Appraiser's Office is "very help-
ful and very reasonable."
But Shawn Wilson, the owner
of Prudential Keyside Properties
in Key Largo, says change would
be good. She said its just been in
the last couple of months that the
Property Appraiser's Office has
gotten its Web site updated to the
point that Realtors and others can
find necessary information about
properties.
"In the last couple of years it's
been a nightmare," she said. She
said it's her impression that the
office just "fell behind" in getting
things online.
"We have been complaining
for quite some time," she told the'
Keynoter. Wilson, the president
of the Florida Keys Board of
Realtors, says she's supporting
Sante for property appraiser this
time, citing his intelligence and
business experience.

Early Keys voters come out in droves


By KEVIN WADLOW
Senior Staff Writer
kwadlow@keynoter.com

Early voting opened at five
sites throughout Monroe County
on Monday, attracting 999 peo-
ple who cast their ballots.
Key West saw the heaviest
turnout, according to reports
from the Supervisor of Elections
Office, but an exact breakdown
was not immediately available.
"I'd already made my deci-
sions. There's a lot at stake this
year," Deborah Thibos said after
casting her ballot Monday at the
Key Largo library in Trade
Winds Plaza.
"I always vote early," Thibos
said. "I don't like lines."
S But first-day voters occasion-
ally found a short line outside
the library community room.
The county's northernmost
early-voting site had been pretty
busy all day Monday, a poll


worker said.
Tuesday, the number of vot-
ers was down from Monday but
turnout was described as steady.
Results will not be
announced until Nov. 4.
Monday's turnout was the
largest for the start of the early-
voting period, since advance
balloting was first offered local-
ly in the August 2004 primary.
Early voting sites are at the
Supervisor of Elections offices
in Key West, Marathon and
Plantation Key, and at libraries
on Big Pine Key and Key Largo.
Sites are open 8:30 a.m. to
4:30 p.m. Monday through
Saturday through Nov. 1.
Registered Monroe County
voters can fill out their ballots at
any of the five sites not just
the closest one -dig the
early-voting-period. nN

4, voters will be required to vote
at their local precinct.
In addition to early voting,
residents had requested about
13,500 absentee ballots for this
election also a record.
By Tuesday, 6,900 had been
returned. Because of the sub-
stantial number of mailed bal-


lots, elections staff plans to
begin opening the ballots
around Nov. 1, according to the
elections office.
Elections Supervisor Harry
Sawyer Jr. predicted the race for
president between John McCain
and Barack Obama could result
in a turnout of more than 75 per-


cent of Monroe County voters.
The Keys traditionally have
one of the highest turnout rates
in Florida, he noted. "We're
always up there."
New registrations raised the
number of local voters to
50,183.

Four running


SHERIFF / From 1

Asked about his view on
unsupervised teen parties in the
Keys, for example, Horan
responded he's all for not stop-
ping them.
"That's where I learned about
sex and drugs and rock 'n' roll. I
will say [teenagers} ought to do a
little more studying so they can
move on to bigger and better par-
ties in college," Horan, 65, told
The Reporter.
But the issues that have
gained the most attention in this
race to replace retiring Sheriff
Rick Roth are civilian oversight
of the police, jails, the necessity
for a county-operated helicopter,
and retaining qualified deputies.
And the race between Peryam
and Davis is playing out to be one
of Davis' message of change vs.
Peryam's support of most current
practices.
Davis is running as a
Republican. Peryam is a
Democrat. Downs and Horan
have no party affiliation.
On the issue of a citizen
review board to oversee the
Sheriff's Office, opinions vary'
among the candidates. Davis, 52,
says a true professional police
agency has no need for a civilian
oversight entity.
"In a professional and respect-
ed law enforcement agency, a cit-
izen review board is not needed,
nor called for by its citizenry,"
Davis said. "A CRB is the result
of a law enforcement agency los-
ing the citizens' trust to properly
police itself."
Peryam, 53, supports the idea
of such a board, but also defend-
ed the department's internal
investigation practices includ-
ing the fact that the head of
Internal Affairs is his wife.
He said if he is elected, Cindy
Peryam "will not remain in
charge of Internal Affairs."
Davis slammed the Sheriff's
Office for letting Cindy Peryam
head the division. "In all my 28
years in law enforcement, I have
never seen a situation where a
conflict of interest was so bla-
tant," he said.
Horan said he thinks citizen
review boards are a good idea.
"It's good to have oversight over
the police and the sheriff," Horan
said.
Downs takes credit for being
the first candidate to suggest a
citizen review board. "If I am-
sheriff, I would welcome inspec-


tion of the way
I conduct busi-
ness. I was the
first and only
candidate to
make this an
issue, and the
overwhelming
response of the
DAVIS citizens tells
Sme they want a
citizen review board now," she
said.
All four candidates have dif-
ferent ideas about how the coun-
ty jails should be run.
Davis says jails have become
"a refuge
instead of a
Punishment"
for many crim-
inals in .the
-. ..- county. He
said the jail
I N population has
-? more than
doubled since
PERYAM 1990, from an
average of 290 inmates then to
more than 600 today.
He says much of the reason
for the hike is that most inmates
have drug and alcohol addictions,
others have mental health issues
and 2- percent of the jail popula-
tion is made up of homeless peo-
ple. He said many inmates are in
jail because they want to be there.
"I believe in tougher jails.
With amenities such as air-condi-
tioned living quarters, cable tele-
vision, Internet access and free
health and dental care, incarcera-
tion in Monroe County is no
longer a deterrent to crime. In
many cases, it is an attraction,"
Davis said.
' Peryam defended the opera-
tion of the jails, denying that
inmates have Internet access and
cigarettes, as Davis has also said.
Regarding health and dental care,
Peryam said, "The law requires
the jails to provide necessary
medical and dental services to
inmates, and it has to be compa-
rable to the services that persons
in the general population
receive."
Inmates not in maximum
security can watch basic cable
television in a commons area,
and can access a computer data-
base not the Internet in the
jail's legal library.
Both Davis and Peryam said
there is a need to reduce the
amount of jail inmates with sub-
stance abuse and mental health

problems.
"I want the Sheriff's Office to
join the coalition for the home-
less, the addicted and the mental-
ly ill," Davis said. "By joining
forces with and building a strong
coalition, we can save millions of
dollars budgeted for the jail."
This is one area Peryam
seems to agree with Davis. "We
need to aggressively pursue and
support diversion programs for
the mentally ill and/or those with
dual diagnosis mentally ill and
substance abuser," he said. "Jail
is not the place for mentally ill
persons."
But their methods to achieve
this goal vary.
Peryam supports giving
inmates more to do. "One way to
reduce the cost to our citizens is
to reduce jail recidivism by
changing inmates into work-
mates through education and
vocational training," he said.
Davis stresses a policy of
tougher time for most inmates
combined with the help of area
nonprofit groups to reduce the
number of homeless and drug-
addicted inmates who get arrest-
ed just to have a place to stay.
"I promise to make the
Monroe County jails the worst in
the state of Florida while still
maintaining the Florida Model
Jail Standards," Davis said.
Downs said the county jails
are run inhumanely and violate
"the U.N. mandate on the treat-.
ment of prisoners." She said most


c1unshne


inmates should be involved with
work and education programs to
reduce the recidivism rate.
"I believe all inmates should
work unless they are a threat to
other inmates or society," she
said. "I want a nursery and a gar-
den run by inmates. I want the
inmates to clean our streets and
beaches, and I want the inmates -
to all come out of jail with a
diploma."
Horan said jails should only
be a place for violent offenders.
"The way jails are run is all right
as long as there are no addicts,
and it's just people who hurt
other people."
Peryam said most crime in the
Keys has "gone down almost
every year over the last 18 years
for a total of nearly 50 percent."
He said some "petty crime,
such as thefts from motor vehi-
cles, thefts from buildings and
bicycle thefts," has risen.
"A change in demographics
may be part of this trend, and I
am sure the economy and unem-
ployment are also contributing
factors, along with the rapid rise
in gas prices," Peryam said.
Davis acknowledged the rela-
tively low crime rate in the Keys
but said "the 18-Mile Stretch has
become an expressway to crime
in the Keys from Homestead and
Florida City."
He said setting up more cam-
eras to document all .vehicles
entering and leaving the county
at the bottom of the Stretch "will
do wonders to deter crime from
the north and help identify sus-
pects."

Keys Opinion


Davis edges Peryam

in bringing change

Four candidates are vying to be Monroe County's next sheriff.
Two bring impressive, decades-long careers in law enforce-
ment. One candidate, Sandra Downs, has no police background
but has run a vigorous campaign. Bob Horan runs on a single
issue legalization and taxing of marijuana.
While Downs has studied the issues and champions reform,
we need someone qualified to lead the sheriff's force. And
Keys voters are fortunate to have two highly qualified candi-
dates: Sheriff's Office Capt. Bob Peryam, a 27-year veteran,
and Ken Davis, with 28 years at the U.S. Coast Guard and the
U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration.
This is a tough choice. Both would make responsible and
able stewards and both are qualified to take over for retiring
Sheriff Rick Roth.
Democrat Peryam has worked in almost every division up
and down the Keys. Currently top cop for the city of Marathon,
Peryam holds a master's degree in criminal justice, is a gradu-
ate of the FBI National Academy and has impressive commu-
nity and civic ties.
Republican Ken Davis has six years in U.S. Coast Guard
intelligence and the rest in the DEA. His career took him
around the world; he was agent in charge of the largest DEA
office on the California-Mexico border. And he spent three
years auditing local, state' and federal law enforcement opera-
tions with the DEA and Department of Justice.
He ended his career as the DEA agent in charge of the Florida
Keys, where he established a joint task force with members of
the DEA, Sheriff's Office, the Key West Police Department,
Florida Department of Law Enforcement and'U.S Immigration
and Customs Enforcement.
While Peryam has thorough knowledge of what it takes to
operate law enforcement in the Keys, Davis does as well and
also brings broader experience to the table. The Keys are
changing, and the Sheriff's Office needs someone willing to
make tough, objective choices.
We like Davis' idea of creating better partnerships among
state and federal law enforcement. We like his stance on
tougher jails, working with area nonprofits to rehabilitate
inmates with substance abuse problems, and creating a better
alternative for homeless than jail.
We think Davis' idea about getting more deputies into neigh-
borhoods to work with the community is a remedy to tackling
crime that trickles in from Miami-Dade County. And we like
that he's examining the pay scales to try to get more money to
deputies and flatten the salaries in management.
Ken Davis is our choice to be the next Monroe County sheriff.

One person gives entire street a bad rep


EDITOR:
I moved to Marathon in May 2008. I am a
registered nurse at Fishermen's Hospital. My
husband is a retired scientist and served our
country in the national security/aerospace indus-
try. We have been looking for a home to buy
here in Marathon.
One of the nurses I work with informed me of
a trailer on the water for sale all the way at the
end of 47th Street bayside. We drove down 47th
Street and saw a sign at the end of the street that
said "private drive" or something of the sort, but,
it appeared to be for the road to the left, so I pro-
ceeded to turn around in a turn-about at the end
of the road and started my way back toward the
highway.
A pickup truck stopped in front of us and a
woman got out. The truck had its reverse lights
on so I respectfully gave them room to back up.
The woman walked toward the passenger side of
my car and after seeing a man in the passenger
seat and a woman in the driver's seat, came to
my window, driver's side, and asked me if I was
looking for something. I stated the above reasons


for being on 47th Street and she stated, "I was
asking because there have been things stolen in
the area and cars bumping and scratching the
cars at the end of the street. It is a private drive."
I said OK, that I saw the sign but it appeared
to be for the drive to the left of the end of the
road where the RVs are. She then stated, "There
aren't any homes for sale on this street that I
know of." I said thank you and waited for the
truck to move from in front; it was blocking the
road as not to allow me to pass in the first place.
I should have called the police, but didn't think
about it until I got home and dwelled on the
event.
I don't believe she thought I was a threat to
her for real, since she walked up to my car.
Maybe it was my Indian husband in the passen-
ger seat that triggered the event. What if I was a
burglar, "car swiper" or just a scared person with
a gun fearing for my life?
Does this sound to you like racial profiling, or
just a common Keys condo commando?

Pirates plunder
for a good cause

EDITOR:
The Florida Keys Wild Bird Center was faced
with financially foundering until a fleet of res-
cuers arrived in the form of the Pirates on the
Water, Parrotheads of the Upper Keys. They
once again, as they did last year, came to our res-
cue with their unique style of ribaldry and com-
munity contribution in the second annual 1960s
Bird Bash Revival.
The attendance of more than 200 pirates,
mates, wenches and local supporters of the cen-
ter in piratical and 1960s garb made the numer-
ous activities at the occasion an overwhelming
success. While having too much fun, the pirates
put more than $17,000 into the center's near-
empty coffers.
To everyone aboard, we extend our deepest
thanks for the bountiful buoyancy they provided.
The Pirates are truly noble sea dwellers who
skillfully exploit the fun in fundraising.

TraumaStar seems to be a good investment TraumaStar referendum raises many questions


EDITOR:
I encourage all Keys residents to
consider the following information
before you vote on the referendum on
whether to keep the TraumaStar med-
ical helicopter. TraumaStar is the
Monroe County air ambulance
The tax for the purpose of operat-
ing TraumaStar would cost you $15
per $100,000 of assessed property
value. Should the referendum pass:
+ TraumaStar services would be at
no additional cost for residents whose
communities opt in (the County
Commission would have to address
billing for those who do not opt in).
+ The commission and residents
would have the opportunity to create a
cost-effective system that provides
public safety and remove the financial
impact from the Sheriff's Office.
+ All collected funds (insurance,
etc.) can go into the TraumaStar oper-
ating budget with this new system.
The tax could not go into effect
immediately. The County Commission
would be required to conduct public
hearings to determine how to proceed
before a tax could be levied on the
communities that choose to opt in.
Should the referendum be defeated:
+ The money for TraumaStar's
current operation would be returned to
county coffers. That means
TraumaStar would have to shut down
because it would be without funding.
We would have no choice but to
rely on private providers. Air Methods/
Life Net is the current private provider.
+ Life Net is an out-of-pocket cost
for services; residents have been
billed between $13,000 and $19,000.
+ All collected funds go into the
Air Methods/Life Net budget (and to
shareholders).
Air Methods/Life Net has closed
several bases this year that were not
profitable, in some cases, abruptly;
that is the right of private business.
+ Life Net raised its prices with-


out prior notice.
Life Net's letter of intent does
offer a seven-year contract, with the
stipulations that Life Net would con-
tinue to be utilized as the "preferred
provider of air medical services."
+ If "the program does not meet
Air Methods financial requirements"...
"Air Methods will work for six months
to determine remedy." Therefore, they
would not abruptly leave without
notice. "Reduction in fees paid to
county" and "subsidy" (tax money?)
are listed as means to assist in meeting
financial requirements.
So it's up to you. Have no doubt.
This vote could not be any more impor-
tant. It could be the greatest impact you
have at the polls this year. Please,
choose carefully for those you love.

EDITOR:
I have concerns about the special ref-
erendum item, the last item on my bal-
lot for the Nov. 4 general election.
First, I note that this is "excess mill-
age to operate TraumaStar," meaning an
additional tax to the already approved
tax millage. I assume there are tax
funds some other place to partially
operate and maintain TraumaStar.
Second, I note that there are varied
tax rates. I am curious why mile marker
95 is chosen as the dividing demarca-
tion. This means that it apparently costs
more for an accident at mile marker
94.99 than at 95. Or does this refer to
the landing location of the helicopter?
It is not because of the Upper Keys
Health Care Taxing District, which
extends south to marker 64. I believe it
is only the arbitrarily chosen dispatch
demarcation point of mile marker 95.
I recall that in the late 1980s and
early '90s, the Upper Keys were taxed
for a special health-care district that
included free helicopter service by
Miami-Dade Air Rescue from the mid-
dle of the Dante Fascell Bridge north-
ward.
The referendum does not say this
excess millage would be the only funds
that are necessary or all that are neces-


sary to operate TraumaStar. Also not
stated is who will possess and manage
the funds.
Evidently we are voting whether to
have legislation or not. I am searching
for the legislation since, as with the
recent federal bailout of the financial
system, I would like to know the
details.
We in the Upper Keys have already
been taxed to provide this element of
health service, are taxed additionally
with ad valorem taxes for TraumaStar
for the Middle and Lower Keys and are
billed through our health-care insurance
when service is provided. Is this a
fourth tax?
I note that there is no sunset clause,
meaning this tax continues forever. Is
this a fixed rate forever? What if it
costs more in 2010, 2015 or.2020?
This is a stacked question. Folks in
the Lower and Middle Keys need med-
.ical air evacuation services and do not
know about the many other alternatives.
We should follow the example of
Congress, which rejected the first $700
billion bailout bill. Congress waited and
intelligently looked at other options,
then chose.

Traps are habitats, not traps


EDITOR:
Re: The letter to the editor, "Lobster
aren't just coming and going from
traps."
It is a well-known fact that lobster
can and do enter and leave traps as they
see fit. As such, they should not be
called traps, but rather habitats. Dr.
Nelson Earhardt did a study in the late
1980s that showed tagged lobster mov-
ing from trap to traps and even to traps
miles away, which belonged to other
fishermen. And their movements were
far in excess of the studies the letter
write mentioned.
Over the years, there have been many
trap retrievals completed using many
thousands of fishermen and observers.
And when the lost traps were recovered,
they did not show the death and destruc-
tion the writer implied. It is even
required that when a trap is recovered,
everything in it is to be returned to the
water. It would not have to be required if
everything was dead after being lost for
the last six months.
Even with traps that only had three or
four sides intact, there were some live
critters using it for habitat. Also, be
aware that some lobsters go into a trap
to molt, and just because you see a molt
does not mean there is death.
Check with the people who have
recovered traps after many months of not
being fished and ask what the percentage
of traps that have dead critters in them.


Lobster traps aren't really traps, the
writer says. He says lobster come and
go from them at will, so they're really
habitat.
It will not be the 99 percent or so the let-
ter writer was implying.
As for referencing a study that uses
an estimate of 600,00 to 3.6 million lob-
sters, wow, that is a fudge factor of 600
percent. That is not a study; it is just a
scientific wild guess.

sidize its helicopter.
Officials say the TraumaStar
helicopter is a better option to the
one operated by LifeNet at Key
West International Airport and in
Miami-Dade County, and that
the county service is more reli-
able than LifeNet, which recent-
ly shut down operations in Lake
and Osceola counties.
Critics, including Sergio
Garcia, Key Largo Volunteer
Fire-Rescue chief, and Tom
Tharp, a Key Largo Fire Rescue
and Emergency Medical
Services District commissioner,
say the Upper Keys from mile
marker 65 to the Miami-Dade
County line, including Ocean
Reef, don't benefit from
TraumaStar and shouldn't pay
for it.
That area is included in the
Upper Keys Health Care Taxing
District.
The trauma district, as the
taxing district above mile marker-
65 is known, has had an agree-
ment with Miami-Dade County
Air-Rescue and LifeNet since the
1990s. It guarantees patients'
transport to either Ryder Trauma
Center at Jackson Memorial
Hospital in Miami or Miami
Children's Hospital.
Garcia said the agreement
with Miami-Dade is a "public-
use service," meaning patients
are not billed.
LifeNet does bill patients, but
for Upper Keys residents, the
trauma district serves as a "payer
of last resort for residents with
no insurance or any other means
of payment," according to an
advertisement the Key Largo fire
district placed in several newspa-
pers opposing the referendum.
Both TraumaStar and LifeNet
charge patients a fixed fee per
flight plus a charge for distance
flown. TraumaStar charges
$5,500 plus $80 per mile from
the lift-off area to the hospital,
Rice said.
LifeNet charges about
$10,000 plus $100 per mile from
lift-off to the hospital. The bene-
fit to using LifeNet, said Randy
Layman, director of state affairs
for LifeNet, is that the county is
not paying close to $2 million
per year to subsidize emergency
air service.
"If the county finds it no
longer needs TraumaStar, we're
prepared to service the entire
Kevs. But we have no intention


of making TraumaStar go away,"
Layman said.
Tharp said he's not convinced
the language adopted by the
Monroe County Commission in
July authorizing the referendum
gives the Key Largo fire district
the same power to opt out of the
agreement as Keys municipali-
ties.
"I'm not totally satisfied. I
haven't gotten a clear reason
from someone I totally trust that
we could hold a vote and decide
to exempt the district," Tharp
said. "I'm not sure we're on par
with the village of Islamorada,
the city of Marathon or the city
of Key West."
County Attorney Suzanne
Hutton wrote in an e-mail to Rice
that taxes for TraumaStar can't
be assessed if taxing districts
don't enter an agreement with
the county.
"If they don't enter into an
interlocal agreement, I think we
can't assess there. Essentially,
the statute says that we can
assess in the unincorporated
county, and where we have an
interlocal agreement with an
applicable independent special
district, and where municipalities
pass an ordinance agreeing to the
service and its funding via [prop-
erty taxes]," Hutton wrote.
Other criticism surrounding
TraumaStar is the county's poli-
cy of calling it first for emergen-
cies, even when another helicop-
ter from LifeNet is based closer.
"If there is an accident in Key
West that requires a patient to be
airlifted, [county first respon-
ders] wait for TraumaStar to
come," Layman said. "Our
biggest concern is getting to the
patient and getting the patient to
the hospital as quickly as possi-
ble."
Rice said the county's fire
department does have a policy to
call TraumaStar first, but he said
where the helicopter is based is
irrelevant.
S"It's how fast the patient can
be flown to the hospital once
aboard the helicopter," Rice said.
He said TraumaStar, a 1982
Sikorsky S-76++, has a top speed
of 155 knots and is faster than
LifeNet's Eurocopter EC-135,
which has a top speed of 140
knots.
Sandra Schwemmer, director
of the county's emergency med-
ical services, defended the poli-
cy, saying TraumaStar can be
anywhere in the Keys within 15
minutes.

Eye in the sky spots poachers


Nearly 800
illegal lobster
found with trio
By KEVIN WADLOW
Senior Staff Writer
kwadlow@keynoter.com

An eye in the sky helped state
marine officers make one of the
largest seizures of illegally'taken
lobster in recent history Saturday.
Three men aboard a commer-
cial fishing boat face felony
charges of robbing a lobster trap
and major conservation viola-
tions for the massive haul of
undersized crawfish seized off
the Middle Keys.
Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission offi-
cers converged on the suspects'
boat, the 40-foot Kristal, after
John Murphy, an airplane spotter
pilot for the law enforcement


agency, reported seeing the crew
pull a trap buoy that did not
match the markings on their boat.
Officers searching the Kristal
discovered five plastic buckets
and a bag, hidden in a forward
compartment; that contained a
total of 774 wiung crawfish tails.
Tails cannot legally be separated
from lobster until the boat docks.
"The wrung lobster tails were
covered by plastic bags, large
amounts of rope and life jackets
behind a closed, latched door,"
Officer Jill Izsak said in a report.
Of those tails, 711 were below
the legal size.
Another 18 live undersized
lobster were found, in addition to
eight undersized stone crab claws
and two undersized snapper.
Officers identified Roberto
Beltran, 57, of Miami-Dade
County as the boat captain.
Crewmen Leonardo Cancio,


56, of Marathon and Benito
Estepe, 66, of Miami also were
arrested.
The trap the men are accused
of robbing belongs to longtime
Marathon fisherman Tim
Daniels.
Also involved in the seizure
were FWC Officers Steve Golden
and Bill Green, along with Lt.
Bill Bums, Investigator Carlo
Morato and pilot John Murphy.
The fishing boat was
impounded.
Since more than 100 illegal
lobster are involved in the case,
the defendants could face signifi-
cantly higher fines.
Stone crabs
Two brothers from Homestead
were- arrested Friday after FWC
officers reportedly witnessed
them robbing a stone-crab trap in
Card Sound, off North Key
Largo.
. Lazaro Echevarria, 22, and


State marine officers catalogue a haul of 774 illegally
taken lobster discovered after investigation of a suspected
trap-robbing case off Marathon.


Wilfredo Echevarria, 18, were
booked into county jail on trap-
robbing and conservation counts.
Officers Erik Steinmetz and
Nick Martin said they were wait-
ing to inspect a commercial fish-
ing boat on its way to dock when
they saw two men on a personal


watercraft pull a marked crab trap
from the water.
When officers searched the
Kawasaki watercraft, they report-
ed finding 10 crab claws.
Owner of the trap confirmed
no one had permission to pull his
trap.

Williams' arrests piling up


He's facing
Lord-Papy for
skeeter board
By RYAN McCARTHY
rmccarthy@keynoter.com


Andy Williams -
Republican standard bearer in
the race for the District 1 seat on
the Florida Keys Mosquito
Control Board is behind bars
again.
He was arrested for a third
time Tuesday morning since
winning the Aug. 26 Republican
primary.
That makes nine times this
year Williams has been arrested
on various charges, including
battery, shoplifting and felony
cocaine possession. His latest
arrest was for failing an Oct. 16
drug test required as part of pro-
bation he received as a result of
the drug charge.
However, adjudication has
been withheld meaning
Williams is allowed to remain
on the ballot to face 16-year
incumbent Joan Lord-Papy in a
rematch of the 2004'race.
It's unclear at this point what,
if any, implications Williams'
latest arrest will have on his
candidacy.
State Attorney's Office
spokesman Matthew Helmerich
said if Williams denies violating
his probation yet again, a court
hearing will be held to deter-


mine his guilt.
S "Should
the court find
he did violate
his probation,
Spresuming he
wins, he
would be
required to
LORD-PAPY vacate the
s e a. t ,
Helmerich said.
Lord-Papy defeated Chris
Zueich in the Democratic pri-
mary, while Williams surprised
many by
defeating Pat
Unferth.
Williams
was arrested
S and released
Aug. 29 -
three days
.- after the pri-
mary for
WILLIAMS missing a
scheduled drug test. He then
missed another drug test and
was jailed for nine days before
being released again Sept. 30.
"I was released because I was
not using drugs," Williams said
Monday the day before his
latest jailing. "I forgot to go to
the test. I was exhausted with
the campaign and running my
apartment building, it's a stress-
ful time for all of us."
Williams says if elected, he
hopes to see more workers hired
because they can kill mosqui-

toes. more effectively than
expensive equipment like trucks
and airplanes.
"Employees can spray more
effectively and kill mosquitoes
rather than have the overspray
affect the environment," he said.
Williams has also been criti-
cal of the amount of money
being paid on average at the dis-
trict.
"We can use more people at a
fair wage," he said. "The budget
has $7.5 million for payroll.
There's only 71 employees and
that's an average of $84,000 per
full-time employee."
Lord-Papy says she's run-
ning because she wants to con-
tinue the progress the board has
made during her .16 years in
office.
"We've come a long way
since I've been on the board and
change is not always good," she
said. "We've got good people
there and it's the best Mosquito
Control in the whole country."
Lord-Papy voted in favor of
cutting $2 million during a
budget hearing for the fiscal
year 2009, but she defended the
often criticized $8.1 million the
district holds in reserves.
The district approved a final
millage rate of .3798 that is
15.34 percent below rollback
and is expected to earn the dis-
trict $10 million in taxes.
"Any good business has to
have a good reserve. Look
what's happened to the county
and the city," she said, adding
ad valorem taxes are at a 20-
year low.
The two candidates also dis-
agree on whether the district
should purchase property in Key
West to construct a new office
building. Its lease with the city
of Key West for the land expires
in 2014.
Lord-Papy claims the current
building is in disrepair and that
the city's offer to Mosquito
Control to purchase the land the
building sits on is not a fair one.
Williams said the district should
not make large capital expendi-
tures because of its new build-
ing in Marathon.
"Most mosquito controls
have their own property and
don't have to leave," Lord-Papy
said. "That's what we accom-
plished in Marathon."
"I've been through the build-
ing and it's very clean on the
outside and professional on the
inside," Williams said.

Bug race all about money


Zieg: Budget
is too high,
Shaw defends it
By RYAN McCARTHY
rmccarthy@keynoter.com

Budget concerns and "mos-
quito mansions" are front and
center in the race between incum-
bent Bill Shaw and Daniel Zieg
for the District 4 Florida Keys
Mosquito Control Board seat.
Shaw is a former pilot for the
district and the owner of a land-.
scaping business, while Zieg is a
retired orthopedic surgeon. Both
candidates live in Marathon.
While Shaw emphasizes a 45
percent reduction in the property
tax rate over the past five years,
Zieg says rising property values
over that time skew the real num-
bers.
"If the value of your home has
gone up, then you're paying more'
taxes," Zieg said. "They have
more in their reserve fund then
they did three years ago."
The board adopted a final tax
rate of .3798, which is 15.34 per-
cent below the rollback rate of
.4436, or the tax rate needed to
generate the same tax revenue in
the current fiscal year as in the
last one. The district expects to
generate $10 million in taxes.
The Republican Shaw, a for-
mer Mosquito Control pilot, said
controlling mosquitoes is tricky
business given our uncertain
weather in the Keys. More storms-
lead to more mosquito hatchings,
he said, which means the district
has had to budget for a worst-
case scenario.
"When people run, they
always say they're going to cut
taxes, but they don't know much
about operations," said Shaw,
first elected to a four-year term in
1996. "We have to ensure the
health of the public."
But Shaw, along with most
other commissioners, did
acknowledge the district's budget
needed trimming and he pushed
for $2.65 million in cuts for this
fiscal year. The board did trim $2
million, but shot down Shaw's
plan to trim an overall 15 percent
from the operating budget.
Zieg, running nonaffiliated,
said that much like village rate
reductions, trimming $2 million
from the 2009 budget is mislead-
.ing because it was already inflat-
ed. He said operations should


cost around
$10 million
and that it is
"uncon-
scionable" the
district is hold-
Y ing $8.1 mil-
lion of taxpay-
er money in
SHAW reserve.
"Five years
ago it was $10.5 million, then
four years ago my opponent ran
unopposed and the budget has"
been in excess of $20 million," he
said. "It's too
little, too late
and I'm con-
cerned it was
only because it
was an. elec-
Stion year that
anything got
trimmed at
all."
ZIE Zieg says
he is also concerned about what
he refers to as "mosquito man-
sions;" like the district's new
building at Florida Keys
Marathon Airport. He and Shaw
differ on its price tag $7.5 mil-
lion versus $10 million but
Zieg has been critical of the


expense and is concerned with
the district's plan to pursue a land
purchase in Key West.
"Nearly the entire second
floor, 40 to 45 percent, is empty,"
Zieg said of the Marathon build-
ing. "If I were in business, I'd be
consolidating and using the space
available rather than put up
another office building."
Shaw disputes Zieg's claims
about the Marathon building and
says its size is relative to its use.
The building houses two air-
planes and four helicopters and
has 19 employees, he said.
"I measured the blueprints and
the little part of the building
we're not using is 4.5 percent,"
Shaw said.

The drawbridge
now completely
done for good
By KEVIN WADLOW
Senior Staff Writer
kwadlow@keynoter.com

The draw span at Jewfish
Creek has gone up and it's not
coming down.
With access ramps leading
from the new Jewfish Creek
Bridge to nearby businesses now
open, the old draw span was
locked into its upright position
Monday, apparently for the final
time until its pending demolition.
"No one will drive over it
again," said Abbie Kelley,
spokeswoman for the bridge-
replacement project.
Work begins this week to
remove the historic but aged and
badly deteriorating draw span.


MONROE COUNTY .



ASSOCIATION

To: Monroe County Residents


FIRE CHIEF'S




October 15, 2008


The Monroe County Fire Chief's Association endorses and supports the Special
Referendum (Levy of Excess Millage, at Varied Rates, to Operate Trauma Star.)

Trauma Star is vitally important to all residents and tourists of Monroe County. Trauma
Star transports victims of car accidents, trauma heart attacks, strokes and dive accidents to
Miami for treatment. Trauma Star also conducts inter-facility transports, when other
helicopters are unavailable.

For Monroe County residents, Trauma Star only bills your insurance company. Unlike the
private helicopter services that bills your insurance company and you.

Without Trauma Star the residents and tourists of Monroe County will be taking a stop
backwards in emergency medical care.

The residents of Monroe County have control of Trauma Star. With the private
helicopter services we have no control.

Monroe County Fire Chief's Association encourages voters to vote yes on the Special
Referendum (Levy of Excess Millage, at Varied Rates, to Operate Trauma Star).


Sincerely,


hief Daniel S. Cassel
President Monroe County Fire Chief's Association


Paid for by Monroe County Sheriff's Office.


"They have to take it apart-piece
by piece," Kelley said.
Built during World War II to
provide military access to the
Key West Navy base, the draw
span over Jewfish Creek at mile
marker 108 has remained opera-
tional even since the May open-
ing of the new bridge.
The old highway and draw
span were used as an access road
to serve Gilbert's Resort and the
Anchorage Resort, but new
access roads finished Monday
rendered the draw span obsolete.
Before May, getting stopped
at the draw span was a rite of pas-
sage for both Keys residents and
visitors arriving to Key Largo.
The new bridge, 65 feet high,
allows boats to pass beneath the
span without halting motorists.
A notice to mariners on the
draw span status will be sent out
by the U.S. Coast Guard.
Currently there are no indications
that demolition of the draw span
will hinder navigation through
Jewfish Creek, Kelley said.
The southbound lane over the
new bridge opened to traffic with
little fanfare Thursday. Before,
both directions of traffic shared
the northbound side of the bridge
in a temporary configuration.
Work on the span continued at
press time Tuesday but the new
bridge essentially is complete,
Kelley said.
"They're doing last-minute


things like installing reflectors,
striping and making sure every-
thing is safe."
The last major step was open-
ing the access ramps leading off
and onto the new bridge from the
Jewfish Creek area. That hap-
pened Monday evening.
Motorists should take their
time until they get used to the
ramps, which lead down to a
rotary intersection, Kelley said.
"Give the locals a month or so
to get used to the layout, and it
will seem like it's always been
there," she said.
The $168 million project will
not be considered fully complete
until next sunmer, after much of
the fill that once supported U.S. 1
near the creek is removed.
Removing the fill is intended to
restore a more natural water flow.
Crews building the Florida
East Coast Railway originally
placed the fill across Lake
Surprise.
Some conservationists had
suggested that leaving the fill in
place, where it has been for more
than a century, may be less harm-
ful than removing it.
"After an extensive study by
the environmental agencies, it
was determined that removing
the fill will have the best benefit
for the environment," Kelley
said. "We're being as careful as
possible to maintain water quali-
ty during the excavation."

Suspect is hardly
lovin' his arrest

McDonald's latest slogan is
"I'm lovin' it." But a 16-year-
old Key Largo boy wasn't
lovin' it Sunday afternoon,
when he was charged with
aggravated assault with a knife
at the fast-food chain's
Tavernier store.
Pedro Rodriguez reportedly
told Monroe County Sheriff's
Office Deputy John Perez he
was in MacDonald's to get
something to eat and to pick up
a job application. He said he
noticed another man in the
restaurant looking at him, so he
approached him and asked him
what his problem was.
He reportedly said the other
man pushed him, so he pulled
out a knife, opened it and held it
at his side as he asked him, "Do
you want to do something?"
Rodriguez was arrested near


a movie theater.

Co-workers just can't
seem to get along

One man ended up injured
and another in jail following a
machete attack Saturday morn-
ing in Islamorada.
The two men work for an
Islamorada landscaping compa-
ny and were at a- work site at
mile marker 80.6 when the inci-
dent took place at 7:45 a.m.
Deputies- say the suspect,
Rigoberto Rene Reyes, 27, and
the victim, .Walter Hernandez
Castro, 22, got into an argument.
Reyes quickly walked to a
work truck, 'retrieving a
machete. He swung at Castro,
striking him, deputies say.
Castro suffered severe cuts
and was taken to Mariners
Hospital. Reyes was taken to
jail, charged with aggravated
battery.

More international passengers boarded U.S. carriers at Miami International Airport than
other U.S. airport during the first seven months of the year, the Department of Transport
Bureau of Transportation Statistics reported on Friday.


More international flight


MIA bucking
national trend
with increase
The Miami Herald


Miami International Airport
will be among the few airports in
the country adding flights this
November and December, most of
them to international destinations.
MIA's growth comes primari-
ly from American Airlines, which
has its Latin American and
Caribbean hub in Miami.
In November, American is
launching new nonstop flights to
Belo Horizonte and Salvador,
Brazil, and Grenada; and one-
stop service to Recife, Brazil. The
airline is also expanding its serv-
ice in November or December to
Antigua; Montevideo, Uruguay;
Montego Bay, Jamaica; Santo
Domingo, Dominican Republic;
Sao Paulo, Brazil; St. Kitts and
St. Maarten.
American is the dominant car-
rier at the airport, responsible for
about 66 percent of all air traffic.
So even though other airlines are
cutting domestic service, their
stakes are so small thaf they pale
next to American, said Miami
International Airport spokesman
Greg Chin. American is scaling
back at each of its other hubs,
expanding only at MIA.


-According to figures prepared
by OAG Worldwide for The
Miami Herald, the airport will
have 1 percent more seats this
December as compared with
December of 2007. That will make
it one of only two of the nation's
25 largest airports to increase seats
this year. (Washington D.C.'s
Reagan National Airport will also
-have a 1 percent increase, OAG
data shows.)
And in November, OAG esti-
mates the growth at MIA to be the
highest among more than 50 of
the largest airports, at 4 percent.
"At the end of the day, it's a
combination of the continued
Strong demand for the destination,
as well as the hub carrier with a
strong commitment," said Miguel

Marathon senior wide receiver
Angelo Hidalgo had a huge game
Friday, scoring three touchdowns
in the first half to help the foot-
ball Dolphins defeat an over-
matched Florida Christian School
in Miami, 49-7.
Hidalgo caught two first half
touchdowns from quarterback
Kenny White and also returned a
fumble for a touchdown. The
Dolphins started out slowly, but
scored 28 points in the second
quarter and took a 35-0 lead into
the half.
The teams played with a run-
ning clock in the second half.
Coach Lance Martin juggled
the starting lineup for the game
because of turnover issues at the
quarterback and running back
positions. White started in place

ior Jake Sjursen started in place

guys in but if these guys keep
doing what they're doing, we'll
keep it the way it is," Martin said
of the lineup changes. "It's good
just to not have any turnovers."
The team did just what Martin
expected against a weaker
Patriots team, committing no
turnovers against a team he said
lacks the athletes to compete.
"They're well-coached, but
they just can't make the plays,"
he said.
Marathon (3-3) outgained the
Patriots 410 yards to 86, but the
first-string defense held them to
negative 37 yards of offense in
the first half. Martin said most
everyone on the team had a
chance to play, as 27 different
players recorded a tackle or assist


on defense.
White finished six for nine
passing for 148 yards and three
touchdowns and also ran nine
times for 79 yards and a touch-
down. Hidalgo caught two balls
for 70 yards and two scores.
Junior Thomas Ryan recorded
three sacks, while Hidalgo had
two fumble recoveries.
Hidalgo began the scoring in
the first quarter with a 45-yard
touchdown reception from White
on the Dolphins opening drive.
The scored remained 7-0 until the
Dolphins opened the floodgates
in the second quarter.
White scored on a two-yard
run to make it 14-0 and on the
Dolphins ensuing possession
completed a 25-yard touchdown
pass to Hidalgo.
After a 39-yard scoring pass to


junior Kenyatta Scott made it 28-

for the Dolphins by scooping up a
Patriot fumble 22 yards for a

Dolphins up big at the half.

Marathon High School sen-

playoff hole after shooting a 78
at the Biltmore Golf Course in

Gratton's 78 tied for the final.
spot, but he lost to a Palmer
Trinity player in his final high
school match.
"We knew going in that
basically this year was for peo-
ple coming back next year to
familiarize with the game. We
were trying to compete but it
was farfetched we'd win a
match," Freeman said.
The Dolphins lost four
starters from a team that posted
the school's first-ever winning
record in a season. Gratton'was
the lone returning player and
along with senior newcomer
Joe Pratt carried the Dolphins
the entire season.
"After our one and two, we
fell off from there," Freeman
said. "Our three, four, five and
six players had never played
golf competitively before."


But Freeman said the team
continued to improve through-
out the year despite numerous
hardships through the year.
Persistent weather problems
stopped the team from practic-.
ing for most of the year.
"Four days out of the whole
season the range was open and
that hurts. Things were starting
to turn around but it was the
end of the season," Freeman
said.
Freeman said he expects
good things from returning
players Tyler Bennett, a sopho-
more, and eighth-grader Kody
Daniels.
"He probably made the most
improvement out of everyone,"
Freeman said of Daniels.
Pratt finished second to
Gratton with an 85, while
Daniels shot 116 and seniors
Thomas Carey and Alex
Hoffman shot 118 and 128,
respectively.


Conch golfers done

Keynoter Contributor

\The Key West High School
golf team's season ended
Monday in the 1A Regional
tournament at the Inverrary Golf
Club in Lauderhill, but not
before the Conchs made an
impression.
"The other teams looked at us
like, 'You're from where?'" said
coach Nora Laubenstein. "We
felt -like an underdog, but we
wanted to be a contender and we
were a contender."
The Conchs shot a 327 to-fin-
ish in sixth place. American
Heritage won with a 308 to
advance to the state finals with
Pine Crest, which was second
with a 314.
In his last match as a Conch,
senior Daniel Margil shot a 78 to

career and tie for eighth overall
in the tourney. "For four years I

shoot 82 or 83," Laubenstein
said, "but I wasn't surprised. I
knew he could do it."
Senior Blake Oropeza ended
his career with an 81, sopho-
more Jack Lockwood shot an 83,
freshman Joseph Arazi came in
at 85 and senior Casey Dion shot
a 95.
For Laubenstein, who con-
cluded her third year as coach, it
was a satisfying season in that
the Conchs achieved their goal
of reaching the regionals. And
after Monday's performance on
a big stage, "People now know
who Key West is and that it has
a decent golf team," she said.
As her seniors came off the
18th green, Laubenstein thought
back to four years ago when
Margil, Oropeza and Dion were
freshmen and she was an assis-
tant coach. "They are so special
to me," she said.

Cross country Conchs 15th in Dade City


By DICK WAGNER
Keynoter Contributor


Junior Zach Harden lowered
his career-best time by 16 sec-
onds and six other members of
the Key West High School boys
cross-country team ran strong
races Saturday at the pre-state
invitational at Little Everglades
Ranch in Dade City.
Competing in a race in which
nine runners broke 17 minutes,


Harden finished 19th in 17:22,
faster than the 17:38 he did a
week before. Patrick Swain of
Tallahassee Maclay High won in
16:34.
"He really competed," Key
West coach Terence White said
of Harden. "He ran the first mile
in 5:08 and hung on strong. He
has steadily decreased his time
to'the point he needs to be."


Michael LaBounty was next
for the Conchs, finishing 79th in
a personal-best 18:39, followed
by freshman Aeschton Tomita
(96th, 19:05), who broke 20
minutes for the first time.
Ricky Hatch was 112th in
19:47 and freshman Justin
Hamilton "He was our star of
the day," White said shaved
close to a minute off his previous
best time with a 19:49 and a
114th-place finish.


Vincent LeNeures was 119th,
also breaking 20 minutes for the
first time with a 19:55. Jamel
McNeill was 130th with a per-
sonal-best 20:21.
The Conchs finished 15th
among 24 teams in the small-
school division, which pleased
White, who said it was a race for
serious, teams who expect to
return to Dade City for the state
meet in late November.
The Key West girls team was


led by sophomore Emma Fehlig,
who ran a personal-best 22:29 to
finish 64th. She was followed by
Alyssa Sawyer (23:39),.Jayce
Hall (23:42), Paige Graham
(25:19) and Morgan Nelson
(25:23).
The Conchs will face Coral
Shores and Marathon in the
annual county championship
meet at 4 p.m. Tuesday at the
Key West Golf Club:

Several players expected back for Hollywood Christian


CANES / From 18

out with injuries. Coaches then
sidelined a half dozen more reg-
ulars because of team rules
infractions.
As a result, remaining varsity
regulars had to play both ways,
and the Canes filled in the gaps
with newly promoted junior-var-
sity players.
Even quarterback Chris Rini
played not only defense but spe-
cial teams as well on a night
when there may not have been a
backup quarterback available.


Rini threw two touchdown
passes and several long comple-
tions in one of the grittiest per-
formances of his career.
The Canes held tough in the
opening quarters as Coral Shores
matched the Royals (5-1) score
for score to a 14-14 tie with 4:53
left in the first half.
But Lasalle drove 64 yards on
eight plays to score just before
halftime to go into the break at
21-14.
The Royals roared out of
halftime with three third-quarter
touchdowns to pull away. Coral
Shores wouldn't score again.


In the first quarter, Lasalle
already had a 7-0 lead on a 27-
yard touchdown pass when the
Royals picked off a Rini pass
and were threatening at the Cane
8. A stop by Kyle Marshall for
the 3-yard loss forced a Royal
attempt at a 32-yard field goal. A
host of Hurricanes, led by line-
backer Greg Angel, barged
through to block the kick.
The Cane offense then
mounted an eight-play, 78-yard
drive finished when Rini hit
Ryan Biondoletti with a 2-yard
toss on the opening play of the
second quarter. A 28-yard pass


Notice To Monroe County Registered Voters

Harry L. Sawyer, Jr., Supervisor of Elections, would like to inform the voters of
precinct location changes that were made to adequately accommodate the voters
of Monroe County. Please note that if you vote in the following precincts, your
polling place has relocated and you will now vote at the following location:

Precinct 2 Key West High School Auditorium, 2100 Flagler Ave, Key West

Precinct 3 Key West High School Auditorium, 2100 Flagler Ave, Key West

Precinct 7 (Temporary) Fire Station, 1604 N. Roosevelt Blvd, Key West

Precinct 31 Monroe County Library, 101485 Overseas Hwy., Key Largo


to Mike Hampson was the key.
play in the drive.
LaSalle regained the lead at
14-0 on a 5-yard run, but the
Canes had something up their
sleeves. On first down at their
own 20, Rini threw a lateral to
Biondoletti, who let fly with a
pass to Hampson for a 46-yard
gain.
Hampson added a 13-yard
reception and a 17-yard run in
the march, setting up a 5-yard
throw to Biondoletti who made a
diving catch in the end zone.
The Royals would add to the
score just before halftime, but
only after the Canes did their
best to stage a goal-line stand
with stops for no gain by
Courtneyi Dixon, Matt Perry i


Dylan Mats and Rini.
Two Coral Shores fumbles,
one returned 15 yards for a
LaSalle touchdown, and a weary
Hurricane defense set the stage
for LaSalle's 33-point second
half.
Rini and Biondoletti linked
up for a 34-yard connection as
the Canes tried to add a late
score, but the clock ran out.
Hollywood Christian lost 37-
0 to Dade Christian and beat
'Westwood Christian, 27-20, in
its last two games.
S"They're a ,power-running
team that likes to go between the
tackles," Gideon said. "We'll
have more of a full complement
of players, so we should stack up
against themn pretty well."


Red Raiders await


CONCHS/Frpm 18

and some 'handle it better than
others," Hughes said. "We'll see
how receptive [Jones] is to com-
petition."
The Conchs, who were miss-
ing starters Phillip Young and
Michael Sohi because of a ver-
bal confrontation the two had
Friday morning, were led on
defense against Heritage by sen-
ior Alfred Rahming. "He made
some tackles that were pretty


persuasive," Hughes said, "but
he still takes plays off."
The turnover-prone Conchs
are tied with Edison for third
place in the district with 1-1
records, behind Monsignor Pace
and Belen Jesuit, who are both
2-0.
"They're big and they have
more speed than we do," Hughes
said of the Red Raiders. "We
can't make mistakes and hope to
win because we're not that
good."

"We were so confident
that those tarpon would give

"We were more worried
about another boat being .

Former Florida Marlins

native, won the Celebrity

one bonefish (100 points,

one tarpon (150 points,

HAMMER TIME: The Boyle family of Crested Butte, Colo., landed and released this 12-foot
hammerhead shark Oct. 17 while fishing with Capt. Chris Johnson from SeaSquare Charters in
Marathon. They were 14 miles out in the gulf with a jack crevalle on the line as bait; the shark
took it in just minutes. The biggest fish any of the Boyles landed before this? A rainbow trout.



The yellowtail are there


Also consider
the flats if
you're inclined

Throughout the Keys, the
hottest fishery has to be along the
reef line. That's where huge
amounts of nice-sized yellowtail
snapper have been prevalent, so
prevalent in fact that almost any-
one that has enough sense to take
along good chum will have the
ability to catch their limit within
an hour or so.
They've been running in water
between 45 and 65 feet along the
edge of the reef, inside the strong
currents in the deeper waters. In
some areas, they've been around
in such large numbers that they're
showing up on most fish finders
quite well.
What's nice is when you don't
even have to think about measur-
ing any of the fish you bring in
over the side. In fact, you hear "get'
the net" more often than you hear
"you had better check the size on
that one." It makes for a very
enjoyable trip when that happens.
There have been quite a few
big mutton snapper along these
same areas but it's been quite
tough to get a bait through the
'tails. Try using large live baits for
the muttons. Having bait come up
in the chum line has been easy, so
obtaining some nice fresh ones
has not been a problem.
Offshore action has been fair-
ly good. Some very nice scattered
dolphin, scattered wahoo and
numerous tunas have been cap-
tured the past several days. The
heaviest action has to have been

for the
tuna, but
not where
you would
normally
expect
them to be.
They've
been fre-
quenting
the inner
areas of the
current
edge, from
2 to 5 miles
out from


the reef. Large schools have been
passing through and hitting on
small trolled lures. Black and red,
and black and purple, have been
the two best colors. Troll them
well back in your spread for best
results.
The flats have been good on
the tides we've been having. One
of our local guides, Capt. Donna
Vankirk, had a super slam on
light tackle while on a fun trip
just last week. That's a bonefish,
tarpon, permit and snook.
Bonefish have been prevalent
for most anglers on either bait or
fly. Small to medium tarpon have
been working some of the same
flats, providing anglers with the
opportunity for even more excite-
ment during their day. Lots of
jacks, trout, snook, redfish and
many other species have also been
working the upper bay waters.
The bay fishing has picked up
quite a bit since last week.
Snapper as well as more and
more mackerel have been show-
ing up. Cobia have been good
more than 15 miles out. Trout and
snapper have finally been show-


ing up around some of the shal-
lows now that the water tempera-
ture has lightened up a little. And
the bridge channels have been
alive with a wide variety of
species passing through. This has
been a good bet for anglers either
day or night.
The hottest venue in the
Lower Keys is still the backside
or Gulf wrecks. Cobia, snapper,
grouper, permit, jacks, cudas,
sharks and more are hot as can be
on these spots. The weather we're
having now makes most of these
locations available to most any
boat, so take advantage of it
while you can. It won't be long
before we have the windy pattern
of early winter along with the
fronts that only allow a day or
two here or there for smaller ves-
sels to.get out far.
And on two entirely different
notes:
+ We're going to be collect-
ing candy for those that live
behind Florida Keys Marathon
Airport again this year. This is the
most popular Middle Keys area
for locals to take their kids to
trick or treat on Halloween, so the
more candy to hand out, the bet-
ter. Just drop it off at my store.
Also, we will begin our free
fishing seminar series next
month, so keep in touch for the
topics of the events. We'll be
moving them from Thursday to
Sunday evenings to better accom-
modate everyone at our new loca-
tion at 3040 Overseas Highway.
