Voters OK TraimaStar


Commission now
likely to adopt
a special tax
Reporter Staff

Keys voters approved a ballot
initiative Tuesday to fund a
countywide emergency medical
helicopter service.
. The provision advises the
Monroe County CommisSion to
adopt a tax for Keys residents to
pay to operate the Sheriff's
Office's Sikorsky. The initiative
passed by about 3,000 votes at


press time Tuesday night.
It had the support of the
Monroe County Sheriff's Office
and the county's Fire Rescue
Department. It calls for taxing
property owners below mile
marker 95 about $52 a year, and
those north of mile marker 95
about $27 per year.
It is nonbinding, meaning any
municipality and special taxing
district would still need to indi-
vidually adopt it.
Opponents of the measure,
including the Key Largo Fire and
Emergency Medical Services


District board and the Key Largo
Volunteer Fire Rescue
Department, say it would tax
Upper Keys residents above mile
marker 65 for a service they sel-
dom use.
That area is included in the
Upper Keys Health Care Taxing
District. The trauma district, as it
is known, has had an agreement
with Miami-Dade County Air-
Rescue and private helicopter
services originally Baptist
Health and now the for-profit.
LifeNet since the 1990s.
Funds collected, for the trau-
ma district guarantee that
patients will be transported to
either Ryder Trauma Center at
Jackson Memorial Hospital in
Miami or Miami Children's
Hospital.
The county has operated trau-
ma helicopter services since
2002, but officials have had'a
hard time justifying the cost of
almost $2 million a year, espe-
cially during difficult economic
times.
Medical helicopters in the
Keys serve two main purposes.
They transport trauma patients
-from accidents to Ryder Trauma
Center, and they take patients
from Keys hospitals to other hos-
pitals in Miami-Dade better able
to deal with the patients' condi-
tions.
Miami-Dade Air Rescue has a
"public-use" agreement with
Key Largo, meaning its helicop-
ter picks up Upper Keys patients
without billing patients or any
municipality in the county:
TraumaStar bills patients for
cost of service, but county offi-
cials said the tax was needed to
continue funding operations.
Officials had said the helicopter
would have had to make between
20 and 40 flights per month to
break even.
Critics of TraumaStar say the
county should discontinue the
service and rely on companies
like LifeNet.
TraumaStar charges $5,500
plus $80 per mile from the lift-
off area to the hospital, said
Sheriff's Office chief administra-
tive officer Mike Rice.
LifeNet charges about
$10,000 plus $100 per mile from
lift-off to the hospital. The bene-
fit of using LifeNet, said its direc-
tor of state affairs Randy
Layman, is that the county would
not have to pay the close-to $2
million a year to subsidize emer-
gency air services.


WARD / From 1

a local campaign was an
advantage.
"This is terrific," she said.
"I think it's part of a county-
wide and national shift back
toward common-sense govern-
ment on all levels. We just
want people who will get in
there and do the job."
The Sunshine Law cases
struck a chord with many vot-
ers, Martin said. "People have
heard or seen what's going off.
It was obvious but nothing
happened," she said. "The vot-
ers decided it was time for a
change."
Ward, a retired Miami
Beach police officer, has
worked as an assistant state
attorney to prosecute misde-
meanor cases. He currently is
an assistant public defender in
Rosemary Enright's office.
He made a campaign issue
of what he called Kohl's
unwillingness. to prosecute
elected officials accused of dis-
cussing public matters in
secret.
Kohl, a Republican, said
Sunshine Law cases are diffi-
cult to prove, and often arise
more out of ignorance of the
law than malfeasance.
Ward also campaigned
against Kohl's reliance on
chief assistants J. Jefferson
Overby and Catherine Vogel.


"People are tired of these
top-heavy salaries," Ward said.
Ward said he decided to run
for office because of what he
describes as discontent in the
Keys legal community over
operations at the State
Attorney's Office.
"I could not allow this inef-
ficient operation to go on," he
said.
Ward, an Upper Keys resi-
dent, cited high turnover
among assistant state attorneys
as a key problem caused by
low salaries.
Kohl charged that Ward has
not personally handled a
felony case in court.
Ward pointed to his years as
a police officer and as presi-
dent of a large police benevo-
lent organization.
"People talk a lot about.
courtroom experience but the
office also requires investiga-
tion, administration and fiscal
responsibility," he said.
"I congratulate my oppo-
nent on running a strong cam-
paign," Kohl said.
The Monroe County State
Attorney's Office has 18 assis-
tant state attorney positions: 1 I
in Key West, three in Marathon
and four in the Upper Keys.
In total the office has a staff,
including investigators and
administrative staff, of 58. The
annual budget is around $4.5
million.


The Monroe County
Health Department tests
Keys nearshore water
quality each week for ele-
vated levels of enteric
bacteria. The following
beaches have health
advisories against swim-
ming:
Higgs Beach, Key
West.
South Beach, Key
West.

Back to school for Acevedo


Incumbent
superintendent
beats Colvard
By DAVID BALL
dball@keysreporter.com

Incumbent Keys schools
Superintendent Randy Acevedo
won re-election to a second four-
year term in Tuesday's election
with a large win over challenger
Fred Colvard.
Acevedo, a Democrat, won
with 62 percent to the
Republican Colvard's 38 percent
with nearly 100 percent of the
ballots counted.
"I'm just real happy with the
outcome," Acevedo said. "I'm
real pleased to be returning to
this position for another four
years. There was a lot of infor-
mation out there, so they [voters]
had to discern whether they
wanted to continue with me or
go in a new direction."
Acevedo, a Key West native,
ran on a platform of marked stu-
dent achievement during his first


term, particu-
larly improved
student scores
on the state-


imposed

Colvard, a
Marathon resident and longtime
school administrator in West
Virginia and Florida,-ran on a
platform of fiscal responsibility.
He often criticized Acevedo for
what he claimed was deficit
spending.
"The voters have spoken and
evidently they don't feel the
issue of finances is much of a
concern," Colvard said.
"I'm concerned about the
School Board relative to their
role of being able to control
spending and not have this
administration continue to take
us into debt," he continued. "I
hope they stand strong and pro-
vide the programs that are need-

put her over the top with so
much of the vote.
"I'm at d loss for words on
that one. We [she and Estes] had
a lot of respect
for each other
and I still have
a lot of respect
for him."
She did say
that "over
time, people
have known
what I stand
CARRUTHERS for nd people
know what I stand for, working
on the Area of Critical State
Concern and all the related
issues."
Carruthers was almost
breathless upon hearing of her
victory and said she worked
the voters hard right up until the
end.
"We ran a great campaign. I
was out at 7 a.m. [Tuesday]
morning at the Key Largo
Baptist. church and worked my
way down to Key West."
She says her work with Fair


Insurance Rates in Monroe,
which helped lower windstorm
insurance rates in the Keys, was
a big part of why she won.
"I think people responded to
my service to the community,"
she said. "I want to say thank

you, thank
you, thank
you to every-
one who sup-
ported me. I
will work hard
to bring
responsibility
to the commu-
nity."
Rojas was


gracious in defeat. He congratu-
lated all of the commission can-
didates, and said the races for
the most part were models for
how campaigns should be run -
on the issues without negativity.
He said, "It doesn't seem like
it now but I think I have accom-
plished a lot" by educating vot-
ers on the issues. "I. do want to
continue my civic duty" and stay
involved.
Wigington replaces Repub-
lican 'Dixie Spehar. and
Carruthers replaces Republican


Sonny McCoy. Voters turned out
McCoy and Spehar in the
August primary by huge mar-
gins, sending a signal they no
longer wanted their commis-
sioners to listen more to devel-
opers than residents.
That pri-
S mary broke up
the Gang of
Three, the
voting bloc of
S McCoy,
Spehar and
.. Mayor Mario
Di Gennaro.

WIGINGTON always voted
in lockstep and almost always
favored development plans that
came before them.

in 2006 in a special election to
fill the.two remain years on the
term of Murray Nelson, who
died in office.

ed for our students."
Acevedo has often engaged
in vigorous debates with the
five-member School Board,
most recently over budget con-
cerns of depletingsales tax and
property tax revenues.
Acevedo has defended his
budgets, which included large
borrowing for the construction
of new Keys schools but have
also decreased operating expens-
es each year and lowered proper-
ty owners' school taxes.
"You could point at the num-
bers and say a lot of different
things," Acevedo said. "I think
when people broke it down, you
have lot of student success going
on and you have an adequate
budget."
Acevedo said his next term
would focus on student achieve-
ment after high school.
"I'd like to see them graduate
with more than a diploma. I'd
like to see them graduate with a
diploma, in hand or an industry
certification or college credit,"
he said. "That will be the biggest
push and initiative in the next
four years."

He had to fight this time, and
fight he did.
Democrat Ervin Higgs won re-
election to a ninth term as Monroe
County's; property appraiser on
Tuesday, loaning his campaign
$3,000 and pounding challenger
Chris Sante, a Republican, all the
way up through election eye with
radio ads sponsored by the myste-
rious third-party group Citizens
for a Sustainable Economy out of
Sarasota.
When the votes were tallied
Tuesday night, Higgs won with
61 percent of the vote to Sante's
39 percent, with early votes in
two precincts still outstanding.
"I think I ran a clean race and I
did everything I could do. It's just
hard to beat Key West," Sante said
from him home in Islamorada
after the resuls came in.
Higgs appeared on Monroe
County Channel 76 on Tuesday
night, disavowing any knowl-
edge of the group running the
radio ads. He brought with him to
the interview his deputy, Karl
Borglum, whom he introduced to
US1 Radio show host Bill
Becker.
"I'm very pleased that I found
someone like him," he said, in
what' seemed to be an indication
that he would like Borglum to
succeed'him.

Office, Snead led all candidates
with 2,149 votes, or 19.14 per-
cent, while Worthington received
2,046 votes (18.2 percent) and
Ramsay garnered 2,014 votes
(17.89 percent).
The City Council election in
Marathon is nonpartisan and at
large, meaning the three highest
vote getters are elected. Eight
candidates ran.

This was
the first time
in a long time
that there was
any kind of
race for prop-
erty appraiser
in Monroe
County.
In an inter-
view with the
month, Higgs
remember the


name of his challenger from
years ago,.referring to him just as
"some lawyer." He likely won't
forget Sante.
Sante, the former mayor of
Islamorada, set his sights on the
property appraiser's job four
years ago, saying Higgs told him
he'd be retiring (though Higgs
denies saying this.)
Sante has spent the past cou-
ple of years detaching himself
from businesses he owns in the
Keys, which include a mortgage
company, a rental property com-
pany and a pest control service.
He's also worked at becoming a
certified property appraiser and
for the past nine months devoted
himself to campaigning almost
full-time.
Sante claimed Higgs wasn't
being aggressive enough in
investigating homestead exemp-
tion fraud, and said the office
needed fresh ideas.
Higgs, meanwhile, claimed
Sante was too political, didn't
have enough training for the job,
and was not the man best suited
to take over the office.

It was a good year to be an

sioners Joan Lord-Papy and
Bill Shaw won their respective
elections Tuesday.
According to the Monroe

by nearly a 2-1 margin, with
both Lord-Papy and Shaw gar-
nering 66 percent of the vote.
Big Pine Key early voting num-

emphasizing a new vision for the
city's future.
Other issues for Snead include
more responsible spending by the
city government and securing
funding for lateral sewer
hookups. She said she's anxious
to move the city forward with the
new makeup of the council.
"I believe in making a team

"That's what I want for our citi-

feels the board does. Lord-Papy
addressed criticisms with the
district's budget and reserves
Tuesday night, which were
front and center during the elec-
tion. .
"Everybody complained
about the budget and cutting
back, but the constituents were
worried if we cut back too far
the service would decline," she
said. "We have to keep a good
reserve because we had a lot of
rain ... and we have to have the
money to protect the people of
Monroe County."
The Republican Williams
learned' of his defeat behind
bars at the Monroe County
Detention Center on Stock
Island, where he's being held
without bond after reportedly
failing a court-ordered drug test
on Oct. 16. The tests are
required under drug-offender
probation he's serving on a
felony cocaine possession
charge.

Ramsay has called for a "later-
al summit" involving all contrac-
tors interested in installing lateral
pipes from the central sewer
pipes to homes and businesses.
He said the city could save resi-
dents 40 to 60 percent by bulk
purchasing materials.
"The thing I stressed during
the election is I'm looking to
bring a strong business approach

with our economy and I am going

Peryam elected sheriff over two others


Veteran cop
narrowly
beats Davis
BY DAVID GOODHUE
dgoodhue@keysreporter.com


Keys voters elected Monroe
County Sheriff's Office Capt.
Bob Peryam to be the county's
next sheriff, replacing retiring
Rick Roth. '
At press time Tuesday night,
the vote percentage was Peryam,
a Democrat, with 48.6 percent,
Republican Ken Davis with 44.6
percent and non-affiliated
Sandra Downs with 6.8 percent
of the vote.
"I ran on my own merit and I
did stick to the high road, nor did
I ever lower my standards,"
Peryam said.
-He also thanked his family
and friends on a local television
show for their support through-
out the race.
"I had overwhelming support
from my family and friends. I
don't think there's anything
more humbling," he said.
The race really pitted two
career law enforcement' officers
against one another.
Peryam, 53, has been on the
Sheriff's Office for 27 years and
52-year-old Davis has almost 30
years experience as a U.S. Drug


STegan Slaton and Mary
Vanden Brook ran neck and neck
Tuesday with the results so close
it triggers an automatic recount.
With all but electronic ballots
and one precinct's provisional
ballots in, only five votes separat-
ed the two vying for the Monroe
County Circuit Court bench.
"I'm extremely proud of the
effort that my supporters and I
put into the campaign," Vanden
Brook said. "The decision was up
to the voters."
Slaton couldn't be reached.
The race between the two
Lower Keys lawyers contrasted
their experience and backgrounds
to fill the six-year post as one of
four 16th Judicial, Circuit judges
based in Monroe County.
Vanden Brook, 52, has been


Enforcement
Admini -
stration agent
and an agent
for the U.S.
. Coast Guard.
Davis took
a parting shot
. .at his oppo-
PERYA nent for not
PEYAM getting more
of the vote, despite being a well-
known. community figure, most
recently as the head of the city of
Marathon's police operations.
"He didn't even get half the
vote. That should be a message
to him," Davis said.
Downs, a tree-cutting service
business owner ran on the plat-
form that her lack of police expe-
rience made her the ideal candi-
date.
But the contest was mainly
between Peryam and Davis.. A
pro-marijuana legalization can-
didate, Bob Horan, was also run-
ning as a write-in candidate, but
dropped out in late October. He
received 63 write-in votes.
Davis criticized Peryam
throughout the race as being too
close to Roth and said as sheriff,
Peryam would continue to oper-
ate the Sheriff's Office as it had
been run for the last 18 years
under Roth.
One of Davis' biggest com-


the court administrator for the
-16th Judicial Circuit since 2005.
She said that experience means
she "understands the business
behind the justice system."
Vanden Brook said her 25-year
career has been spent within the
legal system, and that she works as
a magistrate and court mediator.
Slaton, 51, pointed to his eight
years as experience as the first
traffic-court magistrate in
Monroe County.
Slaton is married to Public
Defender Rosemary Enright,
which would have required him
to recuse himself from criminal
cases involving the public
defender's office.


plaints about the Sheriff's Office
is the way it operates its jails. He
said county jails should be
tougher on inmates, and that
they were becoming a place for
drug addicts, alcoholics and
homeless people to go when they
are out of options.
Peryam denied the jails were


as cushy as Davis claimed and
he said that much of the health
care offered to inmates is man-
dated by state and federal law.
Davis also criticized the
Sheriff's Office for not retaining
deputies because of a pay dispar-
ity between patrol officers and
supervisors.


Peryam acknowledged the
recruitment problem and said
that he would- implement a "hir-
ing local" initiative, making the
Sheriff's Office a career agency,
not a training ground for rookie
officers looking to get hired by
bigger agencies.

SRecord voter turnout

a cause to celebrate

Regardless of the outcomes, the real winners in Tuesday's
election are the American voters who cast their ballots in what
will be remembered as a watershed event.
More Americans voted early than ever before. And long waits
at many polling places on Tuesday didn't deter record turnouts
in state after state. Reporters used words like "excited" and
"amazing" and "history making" to describe the reaction of
people waiting in line to exercise their right to vote.
Here in the Keys, we broke all previous records, with more
'thanhalf the eligible electorate casting votes early. That's a far
greater percentage than statewide trends about one-third
opted-to vote early.
Long lines for early voting in Florida's big.urban counties
last week even .prompted Republican Gov. Charlie Crist to
extend the hours and accommodate more voters.
Traditionally, more Republicans vote absentee- than
Democrats, so the governor's executive order was seen as help-
ing Democrats who had conducted massive voter registration
drives and counted on heavy turnout to boost their slate.
Turning a blind eye to partisan jockeying for every little
advantage speaks well of Crist. Throughout Florida, there are
examples of election workers rising to the challenge of meet-
ing record voter registration, long ballots and first-time voters.
America prides itself on its democratic traditions and voting
is among the most cherished rights we have.
As much as we like to trumpet that legacy to the rest of the
world, however, our own history of low voter turnouts removes
our right to brag. Some municipal elections in the Keys have
seen fewer than one in four eligible voters even bothering.
That's embarrassing.
Voter participation in presidential contests peaked at 63 per-
cent in the 1960 election, which saw Democrat John F.
Kennedy beat Republican Richard Nixon in what at the time
- was considered a watershed election.
That high water mark for voter involvement will certainly be
eclipsed by this year's turnout.
In the 2004 presidential race (when George Bush defeated
Democrat John Kerry), Florida's voter turnout was 64.4 per-
cent, which was an increase from the 55 percent seen in the
2000 presidential race.
That's the election when Florida became famous for the Gore
vs. Bush Supreme Court decision, deciding who won Florida,
and when the phrase "hanging chad" entered America's politi-
cal lexicon.
We've come a long way, baby. Tuesday's record turnout is
itself a reason to celebrate'

Keys Opinion


Mosquito district spending isn't out 6f line


EDITOR:
It has been my inclination not to comment on
inaccurate statements made by a candidate seek-
ing a seat on the Florida Keys Mosquito Control
Board. However, it appears that a few comments
are in order.
Operating a mosquito control program in the
Keys is vastly different from conducting a pro-
gram of similar size on the mainland. Our pro-
gram is stretched-out over-almost 100 islands
extending 120 miles from Key West to Ocean
Reef. The only way to effectively conduct all
aspects of the program is to operate from three
locations, which are approximately 50 miles'
apart. Programs on the mainland usually can
operate from a single centralized location.
Additional locations significantly increase the
operational costs. Utilizing routine mosquito con-
trol methods, it would not be possible to conduct a
control program in the Keys because of the severe
restrictions we are required to adhere to. No other
mosquito control program operates entirely within
the Florida Keys National Marine Sanctuary, or on
or around as many national wildlife refuges and
state parks as here in the Keys.
The situation becomes more complex when
you include all the endangered animal and plant


species, which require special consideration. If
we could operate without environmental restric-
tions, it would be possible to reduce the number
of employees by two-thirds and the overall oper-
ating costs to about $5 million. But this is not an
option. It's either do the job according to estab-
lished and accepted environmental principles or
you'don'thave a mosquito control program of
any kind.
Contrary to deliberate exaggerations, the dis-
trict's annual tax revenues have never exceeded
$13.5 million. Any budgetary amounts over that
represent funds that were brought forward from.
previous years that were set aside in reserve
accounts for self-insurance, sick and annual
leave, future capital outlay and emergency con-
tingency funds to cover unbudgeted expenses
such as occur as a result of hurricanes or aircraft
engine replacement. The estimated tax revenues
for the district this fiscal year are $10.5 million.
The "Mosquito Mansion" as referred to by
one candidate cost only about $1 million more
than the new fire station in Marathon.

Let the kids cook some more


EDITOR:
I had the privilege of being invited to a local
organization's recent dinner meeting. When I
learned of the site chosen for this dinner, my
interest was piqued. After the meeting, we were
escorted into a lovely dining room.
The tables were beautifully decorated with
linen tablecloths and napkins in blue and accent-
ed with a centerpiece of a small fish bowl with
live goldfish. How uniquely Keys. Water glasses
were filled with chopped pineapple. Smartly
clad wait staff, in starched white chef coats,
asked if we would like water or pineapple iced
tea.
Salad consisted of mixed greens with grapes
and dried cranberries drizzled with a light fruity
dressing. Each dinner was served with a warm
roll accompanied by herb butter. Are you begin-
ning to guess where I was?
Soup was a puree of corn with finely'
chopped carrots and light filo-dough dumplings.
Dinner was a choice of rack of lamb served with
carrots, mashed potatoes and mushroom sauce,
perfectly cooked to medium-rare; or chicken
breast stuffed with spinach and herbs served
with.a Dijon mustard sauce. Think you know
where this was yet?
To top this spectacular meal with an equally
superb dessert seemed impossible, however, it
was accomplished by banana cake served with
layers of strawberries and whipped cream. This
was all served by professional wait staff, which
was always available with extra rolls, beverages
and wonderful smiles. Think you know? You
might be surprised.
It was at the Marathon High School Culinary
School. That's.right, at the high school The
Middle. Keys Marine Association held its-month-
ly meeting there. This was in great part due to


the constant support of the school by John
"Pops' Stiglitz and the board of directors of the
Middle Keys Marine Association. Kudos to the.
association for not only supporting the schools,
but for allowing invited quests to enjoy a culi-
nary experience.
May I suggest that some of our other local
organizations consider this as an alternative to
some of the usual places the dinner meetings are
held. Not only does it help fund the culinary
school, it also helps the students gain experience
in taking orders, serving and, the best part, see-
ing them beam with pride over a job well done.
Congratulations to Chef Green and all other
faculty associated with this program. I'm look-
ing forward to getting another invite.

It doesn't take a lot to pick up your trash


EDITOR:
It was a little ironic that Pamela
Suarez wrote a story about debris in
Keys Sunday.
I just visited Cook's Island with
my boyfriend, his friend and his
friend's twin 7-year-old boys. We told
our friend not to take his or his chil- .
dren's shoes off due to all of the glass.
I brought a 30-gallon trash bag
along to pick up trash because I
noticed how much debris was on the
beach the last time I visited and want-
ed to clean it up a little. After walking
in front of only two houses (which
were unoccupied at the time), the bag
was full. I am saddened and appalled


at the lack of consideration people
have for our beautiful state.
I hope this story helps people
(locals and tourists) realize the danger
and destruction just a little trash can
cause to our wildlife and environ-
ment. Just because it's "just a little
trash" from one person, multiply that
by thousands and see what happens
- you get a 30-gallon trash bag full
in about 200 feet of beach.
Thank you, Pamela, for your story.
There are people out there that care'
and I'm happy to know that you cared
enough to write about it.

Chamber supports keeping fishery open


EDITOR:
The Key West Chamber of
Commerce was greatly disappointed
by the South Atlantic Fishery
Management Council's vote to close
Florida Keys waters to shallow-water
fishing for grouper in order to protect
the stocks of gag grouper.
We are informed that the Florida
Keys harvest accounts for less than 2
percent of the total gag grouper harvest
in the South Atlantic. Yet the broader
ban on other grouper species, especial-
ly the black and red groupers, to pro-
tect the gag imposes a disproportionate
economic hardship on the Keys fishing
fleet already hard hit by loss of work-
ing waterfronts, high gas prices and
certain regulations that tilt the playing
field in favor of foreign fisheries.
We mist find a way to tailor
Amendment 16 so that a one-size-fits-
all approach does not unduly penalize
a sector economically while accom-
plishing little in furthering the overall
objective.
Protection of resources is a valu-
able principle and we certainly cannot


argue against that principle. But we
can and do argue for balance. A
refinement in the boundaries to
exempt the Florida Keys will not
undermine the principle of protecting
the gag grouper from overfishing,
since it is not found in significant
enough numbers here to affect the out-
come. However, that refinement will
permit Keys fishermen to continue to
support their families in this tourism-
based economy.
A once-vibrant and vital industry in
our town is suffering from the myriad
of factors mentioned above. During
tough economic times, keeping our
families working and our communities
viable is paramount. This amendment
runs counter to that aim and, there-
fore, the Key West Chamber of
Commerce strongly protests and urges
stopping the implementation of
Amendment 16 until a modification to
its applicable geography can be made.
Bascom Grooms IV
President
Key West Chamber
of Commerce


God decides who goes to heaven


EDITOR:
Contrary to what some people may
think, we, the world, are not going to
hell in a hand basket. This world we
live in does have its problems and,
yes, there are some who love to make
it sound as though everyone who
doesn't agree with their thoughts and
ideals are surely doomed.
I love this world. I love my com-
munity, this beautiful island we live
on. And yes, Bob and I have our
problems in this world. But every
Sday, I thank God we do live in this
part of the world where we have the
freedom to speak and do things that
many in other parts of the world
would love to do.
Those who want to condemn peo-
ple'and tell them they are on the way
to hell need to just simply shut up and


let the rest of us enjoy and appreciate
this beautiful place we live in.
The god who most of us may
believe in is really the only one who
knows if there is a heaven or hell, and
God is so great and awesome. I per-
sonally don't believe God picks out
certain people to go to such a place.
We can make a pretty good hell for
ourselves here on Earth from time to
time, but that's just my opinion.
I plan on going to heaven to be
with my family and friends and I
hope all people want the same. But
again, that is just my opiilion. So to
those who are constantly sending
some of us to hell, get over it and go
pray or meditate to your god. I'm
sure God is listening.

Marathon


Marathon is full of opp
EDITOR:
In response to the letter "Marathon doesn't
offer too much to tourists," I disagree. A fam-
ily of four can spend three or four days here
with plenty to do. We don't need Mickey
Mouse themes, fairs or carnivals to enjoy
what's available. Remember Cay Clubs?
What you can do:
Day 1: In the morning, go to Hawks
Cay Resort to see the dolphins feed and
train. Have lunch at one of our many restau-
rants. In the afternoon, go to the Dolphin
Research Center, swim with the dolphins
and see the show. Have dinner at any of our
many fine restaurants.
Day 2: Go to Crane Point. There are
63 acres of nature trails and a museum, etc.,
for the family to enjoy. Then on the way to
Sombrero Beach, stop at one of our delis
for a takeout lunch. At the beach, the family
can enjoy swimming and sun, a play area
and a covered picnic area. Sombrero Beach

Marathon's good for families now, but needs more


EDITOR:
I agree with both letter writers Robert
Lyne and Mary Schmidt. Marathon is a
family-oriented tourist destination, there-
fore, we need to offer fun and learning to
the family.
Vacations are all about fun and relaxing.
In Marathon, tourists can relax but not even
our kids have fun here. They have to travel
to Key West, Islamorada or Miami. Give
them a place they want to come back to and
bring their kids in the future.
I have three children and here are some
of the things they told me they would like
to see in Marathon.
A bowling alley.
A skating rink with music so our teens
can have fun in a safe place.
A game room.
+ More events at the Marathon
Community Park for the entire family.
Be allowed to use local pools or build
a public pool like the Jacobs Aquatic Center
in Key Largo.
A movie theater with more than one
movie.
A mall (but that's too much to ask for).
Sombrero Beach is a beautiful beach, but
we can make it better and profitable. Offer


Services and fun activities for kids and
adults like:
Jet Ski rentals.
Parasailing rentals.
Volleyball rentals.
+ Kayak rentals.
Towel, chair and umbrella rentals.
Food, drinks, ice cream.
A beach-related booth where we sell'
anything the tourist could use for a day at the
beach, like sun block, floating equipment,
beach towels, souvenirs, sunglasses, etc.
We live in Paradise but sometimes it
feels like an Island in the middle of
nowhere. After 5 p.m., there is nothing to
do. Sunday, almost everything is closed,
even some restaurants. And if we have bad
weather, and can't enjoy the ocean; staying
at home or the hotel is the only choice if we
don't want to drive.
The city should do a survey of kids
between fifth and 12th grades, asking them
what they would like to change or add to
the city; we need the input and ideas of the
new generation. Marathon definitely needs
some changes, and then we can sell family
vacations to a unique family paradise.

Incumbent beats
Democrat Woods
by wide margin
By MARGARET MENGE
mmenge@keynoter.com

The man who ran the biggest
election in Keys history Tuesday
wono re-election himself, beating
Henry Woods to keep his job as
Supervisor of Elections.
Republican Harry Sawyer had
65 percent compared to 35 per-
cent for Woods, a Democrat, with
early votes still to be counted in
two precincts.
"I'm very proud of the cam-
paign I ran," said Woods, speak-
ing by phone from his home in
Key West. "Our democracy's
better when people have choic-
es."
"Basically, what it just boils
down to is an overwhelming sup-
port for what we've been doing,"
Sawyer said.
This was a contest that had a
first-time candidate going up
against a Conch who'd held the
post for a lot of years.
Sawyer was first elected in
1988 and has run unopposed for
the last 16 years. He boasts of his
office's efficiency and of the
accuracy of the voter roll, which
his office maintains. Monroe
County was one of the first in the
state to have optical scan
machines, and was one of the first
anywhere to upload votes by


fe^'. modem to a
Y; central com-
puter.
? j But Woods,
an adjunct pro-
S fessor of polit-
ical science
(and the only
political sci-
ence profes-
SAWYER -sor) at Florida
Keys Community College, said
Sawyer should be doing more.
Woods, who ran five cam-
paigns here in the Keys five for
former Key West Mayor Jimmy
Weekley, and one for County
Commissioner Wilhelmina
Harvey said Sawyer should be
doing more. He proposed that the
Supervisor of Elections be the
"chief civic educator" in the coun-
ty, and hold classes instructing
candidates how to wage a cam-
paign.
His defeat might be read as a
rejection of that idea. Or it might
only be an indication of the limita-
tions of a first-time candidate who
isn't well known outside of Key
West, where he makes his home.
Woods says he spent a lot of
time in the Upper Keys, and
wants to wait to analyze the totals
from individual precincts before
second guessing that strategy.
On his proposal for the super-
visor to serve as a civic educator,
Woods said: "I'll have to make a
stronger case if I attempt this
again."

'Change is


operative word


Keynoter Staff


Throughout the 2008 election
season, the word "change" has
been uttered more than perhaps
any other.
And Tuesday at polling sites
throughout-the Keys, the word, or
at least the sentiment, kept coming.
"It's a day where everybody
gets to make their vote count.
Whatever we might think, we all
get our one vote," said Jay
Wetzel, voting at Old City Hall in
Key West. "A lot of us are
exhausted by the last eight years.
I'd rather have somebody new
than somebody old a lot of times.
Things are changing anyway,
whether they seem to be or not."
"This is an historic election.
How could you not want to vote
in this one?" said Ivette Coole,
after casting her ballot at Precinct
27 in Tavemier.
"It's exciting. There's a real
buzz," said Coole, a proud Barack
Obama supporter. "People are fed
up after the last eight years."
Kevin Pease, voting at Kirk of
the Keys Presbyterian Church in
Marathon, said he voted for
Obama. Why?
"A change in politics....-I don't
like the way the country was
moving and Barack wanted to
take us in another direction."
"We need serious change and
this is the time to put your energy
into politics," said Rebecca
Bennett, voting at the Key West
Fire Department on North
Roosevelt Boulevard for, among
others, Democrats Annette
Taddeo and Heather Carruthers,
who were running for Congress
and County Commission, respec-
tively. "When I compared the
alternatives, I'm in much more
agreement with their policies."
Back at Precinct 27 in
Tavernier, Kellie Pardo of
Tavernier said, "Our votes in
Florida usually don't count for
much but if we get enough people
out, this time they will. I'm still
irked and a little bitter they didn't
count our votes in the [Democratic
presidential] primary."
First-time .voter Patrick
Owens, 20, of Marathon said he
voted for Obama but also said
any change would be good.
"Mostly economic, that's real-
ly the prevailing factor. This elec-
tion lasted forever, almost two


years, but it seems like the stres-
sors in the beginning that "were
against Obama have faded away
when we reached the financial
sector collapsing," he said.
"McCain would have brought
change, too, and I have a lot of
respect for him as an American
hero. I tell everyone that all four
of them Palin, McCain, Biden
and Obama are all great
Americans. I just think it was the
wrong time for McCain."
Nicole Valledor, a senior at
Coral Shores High School, spent
Tuesday as a volunteer poll
worker as a civics project.
"It's been pretty cool seeing
all these people come in to vote,"
she said. "I just missed being able
to vote by a couple months. Next
time for sure."
Key Wester Paul Loggins said
he came out to vote against
Amendment 2, which some have
dubbed the anti-gay-marriage
amendment.
"I'm here to vote against
something. I don't like our gov-
ernment interfering with private
lives," he said.
Voting was heavy throughout
the day.
At the Tavernier Elks Lodge, a
crowd of around 40 people stood
in line before the doors opened at
7 a.m. It cleared out pretty soon
but lines started forming again
around 9.
The same was true at the
American Legion in Marathon.
About two dozen were in line
there before 7 a.m.
At that precinct, No. 18, there
was a minor glitch with the opti-
cal scan machine that accepts bal-
lots. For some reason, it wasn't
accepting ballots and a long line
resulted. But after about 20 min-
utes and some tweaking by elec-
tions officials, the machine began
to work smoothly.
Also at Precinct 18, attorney
Dave Kirwan was monitoring the
voting process for the state.
Democratic party. He said he did-
n't know if all Keys precincts
were staffed by attorneys for the
Democrats.

but handled it with grace and
professionalism, colleagues
say.
Martin, 56., died Saturday in
Jacksonville after a long battle
with cancer. His wife Helen
was at his side.
"He got the department
started in a very strong and
positive way," said Interim
Chief James Callahan. "Chief

Martin was hired locally in
2002 as the first chief of a
countywide fire-rescue divi-

paid, professional staff.
"Chief Martin was an excel-
lent leader who had to deal
with a lot of issues," said
William Wagner III, now fire
chief of the municipal depart-

Marathon.
"He was ideal for the job,
and was always a gentleman,"
Wagner said. "In working with
Chief Martin on joint projects,
I learned some things from him
about dealing with people."
Martin came to the Keys
from Henrico County, near
Richmond, Va. He progressed

A 40-year-old Key West

his motorcycle collided with a

The victim, Brett

According to Key West
police, Smith was eastbound
on Atlantic Boulevard about
10:15 a.m. when a Toyota
Camry struck his motorcycle.
Late Tuesday, police still
hadn't said who was driving
the Toyota or where they're
from. City spokeswoman
Alyson Crean said a final
report wasn't ready but she
didn't say why the names
couldn't be released.
Following the accident, Key
West police shut down Atlantic
Boulevard between White
Street and Stevens Street until
4:22 p.m. in order to conduct
an accident investigation.
Dean-Lopez Funeral Home
in Key West will handle
arrangements for Smith but
specifics have not yet become
available.

his last assignment as special

He retired from the large
Fairfax County department in
2002. He had often visited the
Florida Keys, and applied for
the Monroe County position to
be here full-time.
A 2005 checkup for fatigue
revealed he was suffering from
cancer. Martin stayed on the
job for two more years before
resigning in March 2007 so he
could move closer to treatment
centers in Jacksonville.
"Chief Martin had a vision
for what needed to be done in
Monroe County," Wagner said.
"Now it's up to others to pick
up where he left off."
Martin kept in contact with
the department through e-mail
updates of his battle against
cancer. "He was a fighter to the

Callahan said.

Another diver

dies off the Keys


Keynoter Staff


A dive accident claimed the
life of a Clearwater man Saturday
off the Middle Keys.
The death of John Taylor, 67,
was the second dive-related death
in Keys waters in a three-day
period this week.
According to initial reports
from the _Monroe County
Sheriff's Office, Taylor was div-
ing with his girlfriend as his dive
buddy off the commercial boat
Seafari from Duck Key.
While underwater, Taylor
reportedly signaled her that he was
low on air and surfaced. His girl-
friend said Taylor fell unconscious
and sank beneath the surface.
The pair apparently had drift-
ed some distance from the boat.
The boat crew called for assis-
tance when the couple didn't
return as scheduled from the

afternoon dive.
Other boaters and divers began
searching, and the woman was
located about a mile from the dive
boat, according to initial reports.
Divers found Taylor's body on
the sea floor. It was brought to
shore and turned over to the
Monroe County Medical
Examiner's Office for an autopsy.
Sheriff's Office spokeswoman
Becky Herrin said the investiga-
tion is ongoing.
On Oct. 30, North Carolina
resident Joanne Page, 51, died
after surfacing from a dive at
French Reef off Key Largo.
The two deaths raise to seven
the number of people who died
during or immediately after
scuba diving in the Keys so farin
2008. There also have been five
snorkel or freediving deaths.


Top Key West officials say
$6,300 to travel to a cruise ship
conference last week will return
to the city in spades in the form
of increased ship revenue.
City Manager Jim Scholl, Port
Operations Director Raymond
Archer and Commissioner Mark
Rossi went to Trinidad and
Tobago for five days last week to
lobby on behalf of the city at the
Florida-Caribbean Cruise
Association's annual conference.
Among the most concrete
results, according to Archer:. A
commitment from Norwegian
Cruise Lines, which now stops
in Key West only sporadically,
to schedule multiple port calls in
fiscal year 2011.
"We've already got indica-
tions that they're requesting
berthing for 14 port calls," he
said. "I firmly believe this is


directly due to us meeting the
decision-makers in Trinidad."
And Rossi said he believes
Carnival Cruise Lines, which
makes regular port calls to Key
West, might add additional dates.
Scholl said he met with rep-
resentatives from Norwegian,
Carnival and Royal Caribbean.
"We certainly had a good
team down there," he said.
"We're certainly not going to
lose any ships in the short term."
The conference brought
together officials from destina-
tion cities and industry leaders
representing various cruise
lines.
"One.of the main things was
the future," Archer said. "Our
goal was to sustain the numbers
and entice cruise lines to consid-
er Key West as a port of call."
Scholl said that in his conver-
sations with Royal Caribbean


officials, concerns were brought
up over the navigability of Key
West's waters because of new,
larger ships that have yet to be
deployed.
"We did get a commitment
that they would go back into the
simulator ... to see if they can
meet the safety requirements to
get into and out of Key West,"
Scholl said.
In fiscal year 2007-08, which
ended Oct. 1, the cruise ship
industry directly injected more
than $6 million into the city's
revenues via disembarkation,
utility and security fees. That
figure represents more than 15
percent of all revenue generated
for the city.
According to the city Port
Operations Department, 25
ships will come into port in the
remainder of this month. Forty-
one port calls are scheduled in
December.

Capt. Tony getting a parade and a party


Salt of Key West
to be celebrated
this Saturday
By SEAN KINNEY
skinney@keynoter.com

Key West is filled with char-
acters and Capt. Tony Tarracino
was surely one.
However, when Tarracino
died at age 92 of heart and lung
problems Saturday, Key West
lost more than a larger-than-life
personality. Beyond his public
image, Tarracino was a kind and
loving man who touched every-

one he met.
"If you looked in the diction-
ary under the word 'love,' you'd
see him," said daughter Toni
Tarracino, affectionately known
as Little Toni. "He loved people
and people loved him. It was a
circle."
Visitation for Tarracino will
be held at Dean-Lopez Funeral
Home at 418 Simonton St.
Friday from 4 to 8 p.m. Services
will be Saturday at St. Mary Star
of the Sea Church at 1010
Windsor Lane. at 11 a.m.
That likely will be followed.
by something he would have
rejoiced in: A parade and street
party in his honor.
The parade, if approved
tonight by the City Commission,
would start at noon and run
down Greene Street in front
of Captain Tony's Saloon -
between Duval and Whitehead.
Following the parade, the same
area will be closed to traffic
from 1 to 3 p.m. to accommo-
date the crowd expected to gath-
er in honor of Tarracino.
Tarracino lived a colorful
life, the stuff of films, which


began in humble circumstances
in Elizabeth, N.J., in 1916.
But he became a lifelong
gambler and his move to Florida
was prompted by a run-in with
the mob over horse race win-
nings that resulted in Tarracino
being left for dead.
Tarracino arrived in Key
West via milk truck in 1948 with
a meager $12 in hand and the
clothes he was wearing. Ten
years later, he was able to pur-
chase the bar that would become
the world-famous Captain
Tony's Saloon.
Tarracino was also a consum-
mate ladies man. He married
four times and fathered 13 chil-
dren.
Brad Manard, an Iowa-based
schools superintendent, had
been working with Tarracino the
past five years to write down
and publish the life story that
Tarracino recounted between
drinks to a rotating cast of bar
patrons over the past 50 years.
The book, "Life Lessons of a
Legend," was released in Key
West just last week. Several
events were held in honor of
Tarracino and to celebrate his
life story going to print.

This shows Capt. Tony Tarracino (middle) with his charter boat
in the mid-1950s.


"Everybody knew his out-
ward and public persona but
what they didn't see was his
compassion," Manard said. "He
always looked for the best in
people."
Over the years, Tarracino had
earned various monikers, two of
the most prominent being the
Salt of Key West and the
Conscience of Key West.
"He lived life on the edge. I
think he's going to be remem-
bered as a compassionate man,"
Manard said.
Daughter Toni recounted
another nickname: "He was the
Heartbeat of Key West," she
said. "I think he'll be remem-
bered as, a great man."
She recalled an afternoon
spent with her father. He was
trying to convince her to attend
a wedding with him despite the
fact that she was tired, having
worked all day.
As the two went back and
forth, the daughter was con-
vinced by her father's words as
she remembers them: "Toni, I
don't do anything. People give
me love, so much love, and I
just give it back."
Moments like those are con-
trasted by Tarracino's tales of


running a charter boat business,
the source of his captain desig-
nation, and helping Cuban
rebels by running guns from
Key West prior to the Bay of
Pigs invasion. Oh, and Tarracino
was mayor of Key West from
1989 until 1991.
"That's what he gave people,
a happy memory to take away,"
Toni said.
Manard wanted to .cut
through the storytelling aspect
of Tarracino's life to paint a pic-
ture of the man behind the myth.
Manard said of his book, "It
helped describe the public per-
sona of Tony but also described
the man they [Tarracino's chil-
dren] called Daddy."
Jimmy Buffett, another Key
West character who got his start
in Captain Tony's Saloon,
immortalized the bar's name-
sake in the 1985 song "Last
Mango in Paris."
"I went down to Captain
Tony's to get out of the heat/I
heard a voice call out to me,
'Son, come have a seat'/I had to
search my memories as I looked
into those eyes/Our lives change
like the weather, but a legend
never dies."

Most significantly, the rule

Elkhom and staghorn corals

export, taking and all commercial
activities involving the corals,
including damaging the species'
habitat or discharging pollutants
or contaminants that harms the
species.
"These corals were once the
major reef builders in Florida and
the Caribbean, but now more
than 90 percent of their popula-
tions are lost," said Roy Crabtree,
NOAA's Fisheries Service's
southeast regional administrator.
Most cases from the Keys
sanctuary have been prosecuted
as civil violations. The new law
gives federal prosecutors the
option of lodging criminal
charges.
"It defines 'take' of coral as
more than collecting the species,"
said Sarah Heberling, a NOAA
biologist who worked on the
coral plan. "It looks at things like
pollutant discharges that cause
water-quality issues."
The Center for Biological
Diversity filed lawsuits that
resulted in the threatened-species
designation for elkhorn and
staghom.
The laws also will allow more
stringent enforcement of tourists
returning from the Caribbean
with protected corals. Tourists
returning from St. Croix are
forced to surrender about 240
pounds of various corals every
month, according to NOAA.
' NOAA will release a plan for
protecting habitat of the threat-
ened corals by Nov. 30.

Restaurant, which Cinque owns.
Warner says Cinque opposed
the abandonment because he
"wanted to buy the [Ardolino]
property for less than what it's
worth."
"I don't give a damn what an
attorney says because most of
the time'it's not the truth," said
Cinque, who wasn't at
Tuesday's meeting.
Cinque said he opposed the
abandonment. because doing so
has no benefit for the city. He
also said it was Warner who
approached him about possibly
purchasing the property and that
he never made a formal offer.
The council approved the
abandonment 3-1, with Council-
woman Marilyn Tempest the
lone dissenter.
In 1992, Monroe County
granted Cinque ownership of a
portion of the same road, which
backs onto his Stuffed Pig prop-
erty. That abandonment occurred
before the city of Marathon exist-
ed. But city law says any adjacent


property owner has the right to
object to an abandonment.
"That rule wasn't written for
the Stuffed Pig. If we're going
to let some attorneys song and
dance around it, why do we
have them [laws]?" Cinque said.
Attorney Frank Greenman
nullified the Stuffed Pig's objec-
tion by eliminating a lot border-
ing the restaurant from the
requested abandonment. He
then assured the city access to
the resulting 7,500-square foot
"landlocked" lot it will still own.
Cinque said he wanted to be
present when the item was heard
and that the council. "was very
negligent in their duty not to
postpone" the hearing. Cinque's
attorney, Bob Miller, said
Warner threatened him with a
conflict or interest grievance if
he appeared at the meeting to
ask for a postponement.
Miller said he once repre-
sented an heir to the estate on an
unrelated matter.
Also at issue was the need for
a left-turn lane entering the west
end of the Marathon Community
Park, a traffic area many consid-
er dangerous. Greenman said the
turn lane can never be built
unless the former Overseas
Lounge building is tom down
and rebuilt with a deeper setback.
"I would be furious to do this
and have that rebuilt," Tempest
said of the existing building.
Vice Mayor Chris Bull said
the land is being used for afford-
able housing and by commercial
fishermen and that the city sees
no tax dollars in return.
"I don't understand what
benefit it would be not to aban-
don this right of way," Bull said.

Fishermen fight I:


It's Keys
vs. feds on

grouper closure
By PAMELA J. SUAREZ
Keynoter Contributor

At least twice each month for
the past 17 years, Jack Fernandez
has piloted one of his two com-
mercial fishing boats out of Key
West to the Dry Tortugas for
seven days of serious fishing.
Using heavy-duty- electric reels,
he and his crew pull in about
1,200 pounds of fish each trip,
mostly silk, yellowtail and red
snapper.
But occasionally the mighty
tug on the end of Fernandez's line
turns out to be a red or black
grouper, a catch that earns him
about $1 per pound more than
snapper and amounts to any-
where from 25 to 40 percent of
his annual income.
That's why he and his fellow
commercial fishermen along
with fishing charter captains,
seafood distributors, restaurant
owners and chamber of com-
merce directors throughout the
Florida Keys are banding
together to fight the federal gov-
ernment's pending closure of the
grouper fishery in Atlantic waters
off the Keys from January
- through April.


These are indeed tough times
for those in the Florida Keys fish-
ing industry. Skyrocketing fuel
prices consumed a sizable portion
of profits this and,-in the case of
the charter and party boats, have
reduced the numbers of tourists
coming to the Keys to book fish-
ing trips in the first place.
And now adding insult to
injury, captains say is the
pending grouper ban that coin-
cides with the height of tourist
season in the Keys, when demand
for fresh grouper fillets is highest
and when recreational anglers
seeking the coveted fish converge
on the island chain in droves.
The South Atlantic Fisheries
Management Council recently
voted to institute the closure in
federal Atlantic wafers from the
North Carolina/Virginia border
south through the Keys to reduce
overfishing and to protect spawn-
ing grouper.
Greater Marathon Chamber of
Commerce .director Daniel
Samess said his organization and
others representing commerce
throughout the Keys have
launched e-mail, letter and tele-
phone campaigns to persuade
U.S. Commerce Secretary Carlos
Gutierrez -to veto the proposal.
Gutierrez hasn't indicated what,
if any, action he'll take.
SAccording to Roy Crabtree,


Jack
Fernandez
uses his two
commercial
fishing boats
to catch
grouper,
-- snapper and
tile fish. If
the grouper
closure goes
into effect,
Fernandez


$30,000 a







Crack

regional administrator for the
Southeast Regional Office of the
National Marine Fisheries
Service, scientific evidence
shows a decline in the grouper
population that warrants a full
closure during those months.
"Since 1998, gag, black and
red grouper have been listed as
undergoing overfishing,"
Crabtree said. "We have stock
assessments for gag grouper from
one-and-a-half years ago and
assessments for red and black
grouper that will be complete in
2010. But we can't wait until
2010. The [Magnuson-Stevens
Sustainable Fisheries Manage-
ment Act] requires protection of
spawning fish and spawning
aggregations, some of which are
found in the Keys between
January and April."
Fernandez thinks the govern-
ment should wait for the new
assessments before instituting a
full grouper closure.
"If [the full closure] goes into
effect, I'll lose anywhere from
$20,000 to $30,000 a year,"
Fernandez said. "Slowly it's get-
ting to the point where it's not
economically feasible to fish any-
more. There are only about half
the guys fishing now than when I
started. We're like the buffalo.
We're endangered and they want
to make us extinct."

FISHERMEN / From 16

Business groups
"This unnecessary ban would
have a trickle-down domino
effect on businesses throughout
the Keys," Samess said. "A lot of
people come here for the great
fishing, and grouper plays a
major role in that."
In business since 1982, Stock
Island -charter captain' Andy
Griffiths takes private charters of
up to six anglers out for three-
day/two-night bottom-fishing
trips. He said he now has no
bookings for January 2009
because of the threatened grouper
closure. In a good month during
high season, Griffiths books up to
eight trips for each of his three
boats, bringing in $2,400 to
$3,300 per trip.
"Two parties booked trips for
December because they're afraid
there will be no grouper in
January, but they haven't even
paid their deposits yet. Others are
telling me they're going to wait for
the grouper season to open again
in May, but I'll probably be out of
business by then," said Griffiths,
who has 12 employees. "If I can't
hang out the grouper sign, I don't
book the trip. That's my hook to
get customers on my bbat. If they
think there's no opportunity for
grouper here, they'll go to the
Bahamas or Costa Rica, or the
west coast of Florida."
Griffiths said he may take
legal action to try to force the
government to conduct an eco-
nomic impact assessment for
Monroe County before instituting
the fishery closure. "Without that
study we can only rely on anec-


dotal evidence to try and guess
what the impact will be," he said.

Restaurants
Holly Owen, co-owner of
B.O.'s Fish Wagon at 801
Caroline St. in Key West, said she
doesn't have to guess what the
impact of a lack of fresh grouper
would be on her business she
already knows. Owen said local-
ly caught grouper had always
been a menu staple at B.O's, but
when the price began to escalate
a few years ago, she tried taking
it off the menu.
"On the days when I did put it
on the menu at a higher price,
more than half the time people
chose the grouper over the lower- -
priced fish of the day," said
Owen,.who generally sells any-
where from 60 to 120 grouper fil-
lets each day during high season.-
"I realized that my customers.
wanted it so badly that they'd pay
extra for it. They associate
grouper with Key West."
At the Square Grouper restau-
rant on Cudjoe Key, executive
sous chef Joe Jefferson relies on
locally caught grouper for two of
his restaurant's most popular
dishes the Square Grouper
sandwich and an almond encrust-
ed grouper with warm pineapple
relish. He's not only worried
about losing customers, he fears
they'll patronize restaurants that
resort to serving frozen, imported
grouper during tourist season. He
is also concerned about the fish-
ermen and distributors he's
worked with for years.
"We're locals and we want to
support local fishermen,"
explained Jefferson. "January
through April those are our

bread and butter ifionths, the
height of our season. It's just the
worst possible time for us to not
be able to get fresh grouper."

Fish houses
Supplying restaurants and
other businesses with fresh
seafood from Key West to as far
north as New York is a multimil-
lion-dollar business for Eric
Dickstein, co-owner of
Fishbusterz, a wholesale distribu-
tor that buys whole fish and shell-
fish from more than 200 boats.
Dickstein estimates that black
and red grouper account for
around 25 percent of his busi-
ness. While he is worried about
his bottom line should the pro-
posed grouper closure stand, he
expressed similar concern for the
fishermen who tie up to his docks
each day to sell their bounty.
"When you're out here on the
docks, you see that these fisher-
men know full well that their
livelihood depends on the
ocean," Dickstein said. "If they
were seeing a problem with the
grouper fishery, they'd self-regu-
late. I know they would. They
don't want to put themselves out
of business."

Take your pick of car shows

Or hit both,
at Coral Shores
and Holiday Isle
By KEVIN WADLOW
Senior Staff Writer
kwadlow@keynoter.com


Owners of classic and cus-
tom cars head on down the
highway Saturday to help keep
an Upper Keys automotive
technology class hitting on all
cylinders.
The new Turn Back the
Clock Car Show and Swap
meet at Coral Shores High
School in Tavernier raises
money toward a major new
course requirement.
Just down the road in
Islamorada, he 15th annual
Corvettes in Paradise Show
celebrates the popular sports
car at Holiday Isle Resort.
Many of the Corvettes are
expected to swing by the Coral
Shores show when the Holiday
Isle show wraps up, said Coral
Shores automotive technology
instructor Jorge Bosque.
"We've had commitments
from the Mustang Club and
the Southernmost Hot Rod
Club from Key West," he said.
"It should be an unbelievable
day."
The daylong Turn Back the
Clock Show runs from 9 a.m.
to 9 p.m. Cost to enter is $2.
The main attraction will be
a judged car show, with first-
through-third prizes in seven
classes. Car categories include
best in show, along with
antique, collectible, hot rod,
muscle car, new-era Mustang
and new-era Corvette. Cost to
enter the show is $25.
A sale and swap meet takes
place throughout the day. At 7
p.m., the auto class stages an
engine blowing-up demonstra-
tion to show what it takes to
make an engine fail. "Guess
which engine will blow first,"
Bosque said.
A whack-a-car contest is
also planned, along with an art
show. Refreshments will be
available.
To retain national certifica-
tion for automotive techni-
cians, the Coral Shores pro-
gram must add a class on
steering and suspension. The


Students Daniel Raber (left) and Austin Bynum enjoy the advanced automotive technology
class at Coral Shores. The program hosts a fundraising car show Saturday.


class now has sections on
brakes, electric systems and
engine performance.
Purchased new, the needed
equipment would cost at least
$30,000, Bosque said.
"With all the cuts in school
budgets, it's hard to come up
wit that much money," he said.
"We're trying to start raising
funds for a very worthwhile
program."
About 120 to 150 students
take part in basic and
advanced auto courses every
year, Bosque said. "We've got
former students working at
NAPA Auto, Largo Honda and
other shops in South Florida,"
he said. "Others are taking
advanced technical training."
Senior Drake Boning did
class work under a raised car
hood this week. In his third
year with the Coral Shores
program, Boning has earned
eligibility for a partial schol-
arship to post-graduate train-
ing.
"I enjoy this because I've
always been pretty good with
my hands," Boning said. "I'm
keeping my [career] options
open but it's good to know
these things. I'll always have
my own car."

Postseason on the line


Dolphins must
'beat Parkway
for the playoffs
By RYAN McCARTHY
and LARRY KAHN
rmccarthy@keynoter.com

The football Dolphins of
Marathon High School again
relied on stifling defense to earn
a 21-3 victory over District 16
2B rival Ransom Everglades
Saturday night, 21-3.
The win improved the
Dolphins to .5-3 overall and 2-1
in their district, which sets up a
visit to Parkway Academy (6-1,
2-1) Friday at 7 p.m.
The winner of that game will
advance to a first-round state
championship game against
perennial national .power
Pahokee High School. The loser
plays out the string and doesn't
make the playoffs.
Marathon dominated the
Raiders defensively, never allow-
ing Ransom to move the ball
with any consistency.
Meanwhile, coach Lance
Martin said an offense that's
been stagnant in recent weeks

A young but seasoned
Marathon High SchQol girls
soccer team won its regular
season opener at the Marathon
Community Park Monday
against Miami Christian
School, 5-0.
After a two-win season in
2006, the girls had what coach
Dennis Doll called a


"Cinderella season" in 2007,
going 10-6-1 and reaching the
District 16-2A championship.
He said a repeat performance
would be challenging.
"Anyone that plays, they
know what to expect," Doll
said. "It's not going to be a sur-
prise."
Still, with so many talented
young players who have yet to
reach high school, Doll says
the outlook is bright for the
near future.

Conchs need
to beat Belen
to advance
By DICK WAGNER
Keynoter Contributor


The Key West High School
football team celebrated its 41-6
victory over Ronald Reagan
Friday night at Tommy Roberts
Memorial Stadium a bit too
enthusiastically to suit coach
Jerry Hughes.
"I had to read them the riot
act," Hughes said. "I told them,
'Who have you beat? The JV team
could have beat that team.' "


The victory, against a school
that has been playing football for
only a few seasons,- improved
Key West's record to 4-5 overall
and 2-2 in District 16-3A. It also
generated a lot of enthusiasm for
the homecoming game this
Friday night at 7:30 against
Belen Jesuit because it kept the
Conchs' state playoff hopes alive.
The Conchs need to win to tie
Belen (6-2. 3-1) for second place
and force a one-quarter tiebreak-
er game in Miami on Monday
night. It is also possible that
Edison will finish 3-2; in that

made some progress and sus-
tained several long drives.
"It seemed a little better
offensively. Kenny is getting a
little more comfortable back at
quarterback, so that always helps
us," Martin said of senior Kenny
White.
White ran 14 times for 101
yards and a touchdown and was
4 for 8 passing for 73 yards in
the game. Junior running back
AJ. Freeman ran 20 times for
136 yards and a touchdown.
But he also said a goal-line
interception in the first half and a
failure to score on four runs
inside the Raiders' 10 yard line
cost the Dolphins two scores.
Saturday's game was costly:
Martin said junior Nyran Ross,
who started the year at quarter-
back for the Dolphins, is likely
out for the season with a high
ankle-sprain.
Ransom went three and out
on its first possession and
Marathon countered by scoring
on its opening drive. White ran
in a quarterback keeper from 37
yards out to give the Dolphins a
7-0 lead with 7:52 to go in the
first quarter.
The Raiders again went three
and out and Marathon went on a
long drive, but White threw an
interception in the end zone and
Ransom took possession at 1:55
to go in the first quarter. But the


Raiders couldn't capitalize and
punted.
Marathon turned the ball over
again on its next possession and
drove seven plays before a fum-
bled exchange between White
and Freeman.
Once again, the Raiders
couldn't take advantage and
punted. When Marathon
regained possession, Freeman
redeemed himself and took it 70
yards for a touchdown on the
Dolphins' first play. With the
extra point, that made 14-0 at
6:20 in the second quarter.
Dolphin freshman Trevelle
Beckford intercepted a ball on
the next Ransom possession but
White then threw another inter-
ception after a long scramble in
the backfield. Ransom took pos-
session and went to the two-
minute drill, resulting in a 30-
yard field goal to make it 14-3 at
the half.
The third quarter ended with

the score still 14-3, but a drive
beginning in that quarter contin-
ued into the fourth-13 plays. The
Dolphins' came up short of the
end zone again, failing to score
on four straight runs from the
Raiders' 8 yard line.
Ransom took possession with
the score still 14-3 as Martin
decided against kicking a short
field goal that would have given
the Fins a two-TD lead. He said
the ball was on the left hash,
which would have made it diffi-
cult for kicker Matt DeFillips to
convert.
"He's got a good leg, but the


angle is not good and we need to
be able to score from down
there," Martin said.
White, who also plays defen-
sive back, intercepted the ball on
the first Raider play from their
own 2-yard line. It was costly -
he was hurt on the play and did-
n't return.
Connell took over for him
and after a negative run by
Freeman, threw a nice ball over
the middle as Hector Vicioso
came clear in the seam. He was
wide open' in back of every
Raider defender and Connell hit
him in stride for the touchdown.


That made it 21-3 Marathon
at 8:10 in the fourth quarter.
Ransom drove 10 plays on
the next possession, including an
18-yard run and a 27-yard pass
completion but they turned it
over on downs after an incom-
plete pass on 4th and 7 from the
Dolphih 26.
Marathon turned it overon
downs after a fake punt they
were really just trying to kill
time and chew up the clock.
Ransom got a final possession
but by then, the deal was sealed:

Soccer Conchs split preseason tilt


By DICK WAGNER
Ieynoter Contributor


Giving notice that it will fea-
ture a more aggressive offense,
the Key West High School girls
soccer team defeated Marathon,
4-0, in a home preseason match
saturday.
Then, in the second game of a
doubleheader, the Conchs lost to
University School of Fort
Lauderdale, 2-1.
Although the Conchs, led the
,Dolphins by only 1-0 at halftime
- on a goal that a Marathon
player kicked into her own net -
Key West coach Scott Paul liked
what he had seen.
"We're already taking more


outside shots and quick shots than
we did last year," Paul told his
players.
He also told them the impor-
tance of heading balls.
"If. you're not willing, to get a
headache for a goal, we're wast-
ing our time," he said.
Early in the second half, a
crisp shot from the right side by
Krizzie Menez increased the lead
to 2-0. Jasmine Jones followed
with a shot over goalie Kelly
Struyf to make it 3-0 and Kaya
Lydamore ended the scoring with
a shot into an unguarded net.
* "We knew they'd be strong
and physical, and playing a team


like that helps us," said Marathon
coach Lynn Landry, whose roster
is heavy with freshmen and
eighth-graders. He praised the


play of Struyf, who was fresh
from the volleyball team, along
with defenders Katie Landry and
Michelle McKenna.


In Key West's loss .to
University, sophomore Jennifer
Barcenas scored the Conchs' only
goal.

and the rest are eighth grade," he
said.
Eighth-grader Katie Landry
started the scoring just 35 sec-
onds into the game, taking a
crossing ball from Jasmine
DeLaCruz and netting a goal
from 12 yards out to give the
Dolphins a 1-0 lead.
Miami Christian lost a player
on the play, as Landry accidental-
ly kicked a Victors defender on
her follow-through. The team
brought only 11 players and was
forced to play shorthanded the
remainder of the game.
DeLaCruz scored a goal of her
own just minutes later from 30
yards out to make it 2-0.

Another eighth-grader, Taylor
Konrath, scored with 14:31
remaining in the first half to put
the Dolphins up 3-0. Konrath was
assisted by the Dolphins' lone
senior, Analis Flores, and scored
on a shot that found the bottom
left comer of the net.
With a comfortable lead, Doll
and fellow coach Lynn Landry
began substituting for starters.
Marathon started the second
half much like the first, with
DeLaCruz netting a goal just 35
seconds in to make it 4-0.
Sophomore Kelley Struyf scored
the team's final goal from 20
yards out with 24 minutes
remaining in the game.

Lady Canes open


Team looks
to repeat
past success
By KEVIN WADLOW
Senior Staff Writer
kwadlow@keynoter.com

Coral Shores' girls soccer
team debuts this week under a
new head coach.
The Lady Hurricanes opened
the season Tuesday at Key West
High School (results not avail-
able at press time).
"We didn't have any presea-
son games so we're getting right
into it," Arthur Paterson said
while preparing for the trip
south.
Coral Shores travels to
Carrollton on Tuesday before the
first home game, Nov. 13 against
Palmer Trinity.
The Lady Canes return a
number of starters from a club
(15-5-1) that reached the state
Class 3A regional semifinals last
winter.
Several new players are
expected to make immediate
contributions.
In addition to coaching the
Coral Shores JV last year,
Paterson coached the Upper
Keys Under-16 team that won its
age group at the American Youth
Soccer Organization's. National
Games in Hawaii in July.


Football
Coral Shores' football
Hurricanes travel to Doral
Academy in Miami-Dade
County for a 7 p.m. Friday game.
Doral (5-3) is coming off a
271-7 win over LaSalle, a team
that beat the Canes on Oct. 17.
"Doral is a fast team offen-
sively and .very aggressive on
defense," Hurricane head coach
Todd Gideon said. "We'll have
our hands full."
Mike Hampson, a leading
Cane rusher and receiver, will be
sidelined Friday with an injury.
The Canes (2-6) will run
starting linebacker Courtney
Dixon at running back after
Dixon turned in some strong
runs late in last week's loss to
Neumann of Naples.
"We've gone up against ath-
letic teams before," Gideon said.
"If we keep our heads up and
play Hurricane football, we
should be fine."
Coral Shores closes the sea-
son Nov. 14 at Marathon High
School.
A scheduled home junior-var-
sity game Thursday against
Gulliver Prep's JV has been can-
celled. The Raiders were unable
to field a JV team after moving
several players up to varsity, said
Coral Shores athletic director
Rich Russell.

But getting by Belen a

Pace, 23-6. Belen also won, 14-

beat the Conchs, 41-13.
To win, Hughes said, the
Conchs will have to be the more
disciplined team, which will be a
challenge becauseBelen runs a
wing-T offense that relies on
misdirection plays. "We've got
to be able to read their linemen,"
he said.
On offense, the Conchs will
need to have strong games from


Junior quarterback Stephen
Jones, who threw for 170'yards
against Reagan, and from Alfred
Rahming, who scored four
touchdowns last week.
With the combination of
homecoming and a meaningful
game, the season's largest crowd
is expected at Key West's 300-
seat stadium.
"Homecoming means a lot of

don't know if we're mature
enough to handle distractions."

Keys Fishing


Offshore
It was pretty winds for
the most part most of the
past-week, and the offshore
sea state was on the rough
side: there were onl1 a cou-
ple of boats that fished, but
w ith some great results.
"Capt. Brian Cone fishing
out of Robbie's Marina had a
good day on an offshore
hump. He boated 10 blackfin
tuna that ranged m size from
12 to 19 pounds. His anglers
were baiting the runa with
live cigar minnows on 20-
pound test spinning tackle.

Reefs

anglers released 10 sailfish
and boated st. gaffer!slam-

were in the mi. near the
reef's edge probably for the
same reason that the sailfish
were a proliferation of
baitfish. The word is that the
cigar minnows are in ver)
good supply from Alligator
to Tennessee reef.
Capt. Mike Owens reports
that the king mackerel are bit-
ing well on the reef in depths
firm 100 to 200 feet out
beyond the Channel 2 area.

Gulf, bay
Capt. Jeff Beeler fished a
trip this week in the Gulf and

Winds of change are here


Tuna, sailfish
are good to
target offshore

The winds of change have
arrived.
The first of the windy cold
fronts just passed through the
Keys, bringing strong northerly
winds and some cooler tempera-
tures. The feel is also cooler due
to the lower humidify, and the
effects on Keys fishing will be
more bait movement and a
species shakeup from cooler
waters.
What this signalsis the begin-
ning of good action along the reef
edge for the late fall and winter.
This wind action will concentrate
surface baits all along the reef
edges, which will in turn attract
numerous predators to this venue.
The No. 1 question I still get
from inbound offshore anglers is:
"When's the best time to get the
dolphin?" I can only answer May
and June.
For all intents and purposes,
we're now out of the big dolphin
season. This is not to say that
there aren't some still around; on
an occasional day, you may find
big schools pushing through the
area. But for those who are tar-
geting them, the odds are not that
great now and throughout the
winter. It's time to look for more
of the winter species that frequent'
the Keys and be happy when you
happen to come across some dol-
phin from time to time.
For the most part, offshore
action has been divided between
two species lately: Sailfish and
blackfin tuna. They've been the
target of most people now, as
both are active in the area.
The tunas along and near
shore become more common
now and have been very good.
And sailfish action 'ranges from
80 to 420 feet of water along this
region.
Kingfish and mackerel have
also made a good appearance
along the reefs and just beyond
the past couple of weeks, with an
almost daily increase occurring.
And the prevalence of bally-
hoo has made obtaining bait easy
for your day of fishing. In fact, on
several occasions, while
anchored along the. reef to catch
bait, some anglers have been
inundated with predators to the

Dave Navarro time being
reported
from time to time. And there is
continued good bottom fishing
for muttons.
The winds have made it tough
for smaller boats to venture too far
out, which of course has created an
increase in fishing closer to shore.
Many have been rewarded with
nice catches of a variety of fish.
There are plenty of small spots
that line the nearby oceanside of
the islands, which will put you
out of the heavy winds and allow
.all to have a good time with plen-
ty of action as long as you
have good chum.
Big mackerel are becoming
rather thick on both sides of the
islands, but particularly in the
bay; you'll find a good number of
mangrove snapper. Bayside has
also had its share of 6obia, -trout
and a surprising number of early
bluefish.

their minds as to which side they
want to live on this winter.
The flats have been a little
tough with the winds, but for
those that know how to use the
islands and real skinny shoals to
their advantage have done quite
well. There have been plenty of
bones around as well as permit
for light-tackle enthusiasts, even
with the cooler waters.
We start our series of free fish-
ing seminars Nov. 16.. That's

We've made a few changes to

On another note...
I'd like to add a special thanks
to all of the wonderful residents
of Marathon in the area known as
Behind the Airport for their won-
derful hospitality this past
Halloween evening, again.
It's so nice to have somewhere
to take your children to trick or

idents put out so much effort each
and every year and seem to make
it better each time.
