New City Council members Ginger Snead and Dick Ramsay, along with returning incumbent
Pete Worthington, are sworn in Monday before the group's first regular meeting since the
election. The council's first order of business was selecting Mike Cinque as mayor and Don Vasil
as vice mayor.


Mayoral vote goes quick


MAYOR / From I

Tempest, who was defeated in
her re-election bid, and Chris
Bull, who declined to run again.
"Pete has served honorably
but now it's time for-the gavel to
pass on," Vasil said.
"It's a great honor," Cinque
said. "Now it's time to move on
to the business of the people of
Marathon."


Cinque then accepted nomi-
nations for vice mayor, with
Worthington nominating Snead
and Ramsay giving Vasil the
nod. Cinque provided the decid-
ing vote, choosing Vasil over
Snead.
Choosing a mayor has been
anything but easy in Marathon's
recent history.
When outgoing Vice Mayor
Bull was named mayor for a sec-
ond time in April 2007, it took

but referred all other questions
to the Monroe County
Sheriff's Office.
"We are still attempting to
ID" the four men, said Becky
Herrin, information officer for
the Sheriff's Office.
Given the general location
of the body discoveries Aug.
21 and Aug. 22, and the similar
condition of the remains,
authorities acknowledge the
men likely died in the same
incident at. sea, probably a
week earlier.
The badly decomposed
bodies had been scavenged by
sharks.
Were they migrants trying
to reach the U.S. shore,
washed off a flimsy raft?
"There is nothing to defini-
tively say migrants," Herrin


said. "If we knew that for sure,
then we'd probably know who
they are."
A U.S. Coast Guard search
looked for an empty or over-
turned boat at sea. None were
found, although two rafts float-
ed ashore in the Upper Keys in
late August. No definitive con-
nection to the bodies has been
made.
The first body was found
Aug: 21 about a mile off the
Channel Five Bridge, around
mile marker 71. He was wear-
ing "a distinctive ring."
The three others were found
Aug. 22, two of them near
Tavernier, and one as far north'
as Elbow Reef off Key Largo.
No clothing, other than an ath-
letic shoe and sock'on one vic-
tim, was found. However,
clothing deteriorates rapidly in
water, according to lead inves-
tigator Detective Terry Smith.


two meetings and several rounds
of voting to make it happen.
Bull's term was cut short
when voters approved a referen-
dum moving the City Council
election from March to
November. Many assumed Bull
would remain mayor, but inexact
"wording in the city charter led to
another selection just eight
months after he was named.
That selection took three
rounds of voting, as Bull, who
called the selection a "formali-
ty," twice selected himself. The
other council members didn't
support him, though, and
Worthington was chosen mayor.
Meanwhile, Tempest and
Bull addressed the audience at
the Marathon Government
Center prior to stepping off the
dais Monday.
Tempest congratulated
Worthington on surviving the
"curse of incumbency" and said
she appreciated serving on the
council.
"I tip my hat to a very dedi-
cated city manager and staff who
accomplished a number of
things in spite of a number of
council [members] meandering
into City Hall and disrupting
their daily activities," Tempest
said.
Bull pointed out progress the
city made during his tenure,
including sewer construction,
affordable housing and drafting
land development regulations
and a comprehensive plan.
"We all make mistakes ... but
do what's in your heart and do
what's right for the city," Bull
said.

JUDGE / From 1

Canvassing Board reviewed pro-
visional and absentee ballots. The
result: Slaton's lead was bumped
up to 15 votes.
Then on Saturday, elections
officials conducted a machine
recount, feeding all ballots
back through the optical scan-
ners, and came back with a
deadlock: Slaton and Vanden
Brook both had 16,441 votes.
Tuesday, Vanden Brook
looked on with apprehension
as the manual recount was
conducted in Courtroom F of
the Freeman Justice Center in
Key West.
"I've been present through
the entire machine recount and
now, the manual recount," she
said. "Everybody has taken
their job really seriously and
there's a lot of decisions to be
made. It may take a really
long time."
If the two remain tied after
the final count, their names
would be put into a hat.
Whoever's name was pulled
from the hat would be the new
judge, replacing the retiring
Sandra Taylor.
The main focuses of scruti-
ny on Tuesday were over- and
under-votes, along with dupli-
cate ballots. An over-vote
means the voter marked both
Slaton and Vanden Brook on
the ballot. An under-vote
means the voter marked nei-
ther candidate's name.
Duplicate ballots are pro-
duced when a voter legally
faxes in a ballot (for example,
someone who's overseas) or if
the ballot filled out by the
voter is in some way unread-
able, then a real ballot is filled
out by a member of the
Canvassing Board- and run
through the machines.
"We've almost finished
looking at the over and
under," Elections Supervisor
Harry Sawyer said early
Tuesday. "The Canvassing
Board is doing their job look-
ing at the duplicate ballots."
Sawyer has never overseen
a recount of this magnitude,
only "something on a much
smaller scale, but nothing on a
countywide scale. They're all
treated the same."
In 2007, Charles Lee and
Harry Bethel tied in an elec-
tion for the Utility Board of
Key West. When the recount

the tie

S Key West
S City Clerk
Cheryl Smith

The most unique aspect. of
this particular recount from
Sawyer's perspective? "I
don't think I've ever seen so
many lawyers. There weren't

o Staff from the Supervisor
of Elections Office flags pro-
visional ballots when the voter
cannot immediately identify
themselves at the polls but is
allowed to' cast a ballot any-
way. The voter then has 48
hours to return and provide
proper identification.
For absentee ballots, the
Canvassing Board must match
the signature on the ballot to
the signature on a voter regis-
tration card and then approve
or deliy the legitimacy of the
ballot.
The Elections .Canvassing
Board comprises judges
Wayne Miller and Ruth
Becker and county Tax
Collector Danise Henriquez.
Normally, Sawyer would sit
on the board but because he
was in a contested race this
cycle, he was ineligible.
Following the recount, the
votes will have to be certified
by the Florida Division of
Elections.

Judicial race a

great civics lesson

What we've seen play out in Key West the past week should
make us all feel good about Monroe County's democratic
process.
' Who could have thought that tens of thousands of ballots
later, the two candidates for Circuit Court judge in Group 4,
Tegan Slaton and Mary Vanden Brook, would be dead tied at
16,441 votes each?
Tuesday, teams of citizens overseen by the Elections
Canvassing Board manually recounted ballots, one at a time, to
see if the numbers would change. In fact, they already have
changed once.
When poll results came on Election Day, Slaton's lead was
just nine votes, 16,442 to 16,433. That triggered an automatic
recount. The tie came about after provisional ballots that had
been flagged for review were given another look.
When one thinks of Florida elections, the first thing that comes
to mind is the 2000 race and the hanging chads and all that went
With it. But that's not how it is in Monroe County. While Slaton
and Vanden Brook just want this thing to be.over, we're all get-
ting a good civics lesson in how elections should work.
And this is not the first time we've seen razor-thin elections
in the Keys that ended up with the right results.
In 2007, it was a name in a hat that decided who would
advance to a runoff in a Utility Board of Key West election.
That October, Harry Bethel, Charles Lee and Ty Symroski
were battling for the Group 1 seat on the Utility Board. When the
final votes were counted, Lee and Bethel received the same
number of votes 1,879, or 30.56 percent. Since no one
received 50 percent plus one vote, that sent the top two vote-get-
ters to the runoff (Symroski was in the runoff with 2,390 votes).
After certifying the votes, the Lee-Bethel tie remained: The
rules dictated that at that point, the election be decided by either
tossing the two candidates' names in a hat, or tossing a coin.
They agreed on the hat, and City Clerk Cheri Smith blindly
pulled Lee's name out, and that was that.
Symroski went on to defeat him in the election, but it showed
that in the Keys, we know how to do our elections right.
When all is said and done in the judge race, it will likely end
up with either Slaton or Vanden Brook winning on the vote
totals, not the toss of a coin or the pull of a name from a hat.
And while one of them will end up on the losing end, all of us
in the Keys wind up winners because we're witnessing the great-
est civics lesson there is how to properly run a democracy.
And kudos to the Elections Canvassing Board, which is made
up of judges Wayne Miller and Ruth Becker along with cbun-
ty Tax Collector Danise Henriquez.

Keys Opinion


Fishermen know what a protected species is


EDITOR:
SI am an avid recreational bottom fisherman
andfully in favor of realistic rules that would'
protect the gag grouper. That said, the incidental
closing of other grouper species is at best an arbi-
trary decision.
Black and gag grouper look similar, but blacks
have unmistakable bronze spots on the underside.
Gags do not. Other grouper subspecies have
many unique characteristics that would preclude
any mistaken identification relative to the gag.
Identification of protected species has always
been the responsibility of the fisherman. Given
the hundreds of regulations that fishermen
presently abide by, the proper identification of tlhe
gag grouper'would certainly be a daunting task.
Jewfish, now called Goliath grouper, and the
Nassau grouper resemble many other grouper.
Both subspecies have been restricted successfully
without any other look-alikes being banned. Many
juvenile goliaths are being caught and released in
federal waters from 60 to 110 feet deep.
On the subject of post-release mortality, any


bottom fisherman will tell you that more
groupers are-caught and released while fishing
for sniappers in the 60- to 90-foot depth'range
than when you actually target grouper. Using
logic, they should ban all bottom fishing to
reduce mortality. Specific species of snapper,
jacks, sharks, tunas, mackerels, flounders, etc.,
all enjoy varying degrees of protection, yet their
look-alike cousins go unprotected. Again, it is
the responsibility of the fisherman to make a
proper identification.
According to the Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission, regulations are
imposed on more than 40 species of Florida's
fin fish. Of those, how many subspecies are pro-
tected only because they resemble the targeted
species? If so, what was the species and what
were the results'of that conservation effort?
To arbitrarily deprive a man of his passion is
pathetic. To arbitrarily deprive a man of his
Livelihood is tragic.

Just put up a 'no turnaround' sign


EDITOR:
Kudos to Beth Patel's letter to the editor '
regarding the "unfriendly" greeting at the end of
47th Street bayside in Marathon.
The owners of the end of the street have been
trying for years to have a sign posted that says
"No turn-around, "dead end" or whatever it takes
for drivers to understand that the property you
wind up on at the end of the road is private.
The relatives of the owners are here now try-
ing their best to take care of the grounds arid
keeping the traffic down. Yes, unfortunately the
whitetruck the letter writer described is owned
by one of the relatives trying her best to get
things squared away there.
Scan attest to the driver of the white truck
being rather rude as unfortunate; she.puts up
daily with those uninformed souls winding up on
her family property, and just hearing the letter
writer describe her feelings toward her describes
her when she has had it for the day (just frustrat-
ed). As a resident here, I can say that it sounds
like she had just met her goal of turning around
people that day.
She is a very fine person and to the best of
my knowledge would never be prejudiced to
anyone. She cares for the grounds and the ten-

Endorsements

aren't needed
EDITOR:
I resent being told who to vote for in the
election. Why can't the paper simply give the
facts about the candidates and let the voter
decide? It is so insulting and arrogant that the
editor thinks he can and should decide who
should win. The editorials of Nov. 1 passed the
line from reporting news to trying to manipulate
the election.

ants and does try to keep the place a lovely, safe
haven for the tenants. I am certain that she will
take the input regarding the "private property"
sign not defining both the left and the right
sides as private. An outsider's thoughts are
always welcomed.
Perhaps now (although I really doubt it) 47th
Street bayside will be awarded a sign affording
the drivers the information that there is no legal
place to turn around at the end of the road.
Ms. Patel, you should have see it a couple of
weeks ago when a tractor-trailer drove all the way
down to the end of the street. What a project it was
for that driver to drive that rig in reverse all the way
back down 47th STreet (and being a former tractor-
trailer driver myself, backing down the street was
not the problem, it was where he was going to find
-a safe place to turn to get himself in the correct
position td be driving it. Guess what, he had to back
up that rig onto the Overseas Highway).

EDITOR:
I would like to express my grat-
itude to all of the candidates and
voters for their willingness to get
involved. From the primary to the
general election, your'sh6w of
support of your candidates should
be applauded. We did not all win,
but we met many nice people
along the way, many who are com-
mitted to helping the community
become a better place.
It is easy being a gracious win-


ner but far harder to be a gracious
loser. However, havihg-met all of
the candidates, I can say that we
.all go away from this experience
better people and with our heads
held high.
Now is the time to move for-
ward and support our elected offi-
cials as a community and look for-
ward to a better year.

Planning commissioners should resign


EDITOR:
On Election Day, Monroe
County voters began the long road
back to recovery and equality.
Every campaign was focused,
every candidate poised for success.
And every vote'counted. We did
very, very well in our selections.
Sylvia.Murphy, Kim Wigington
and Heather Carruthers all chosen
for the County Commission by 2-1
margins. Forget Democrats or
Republicans, we chose leaders. It
was a mind-blowing day for all.
Our county commissioners are
now in knuckle-down mode and
ready to take on the most challeng-
ing issues in our county's history.
Whatever happens, we are content
to know that we elected our repre-
sentatives.with overwhelming plu--
rality and they have our full sup-
port.
Now we must deal with one last
reality of the past actions of our
rejected patrons, Sonny McCoy
and Dixie Spehar, and that's
Planning Commission members


Jimn Cameron and Donna Windle.
Both are true McCoy and Spehar
loyalists that represented special
interests well.
Beginning Nov. 19, when the
new County Commission is seated,
our county Planning Commission
should reflect our newly elected
commissioners' principles and the
citizens' interests as well. Any
other option is just un-American.
Will Cameron and Windle choose
the high road and resign?
Let Monroe County bury the
past eight years of unbalanced
decisions and move closer to our
utopia, and ensure that a govern-
ment of the people, by the people,
for the people, shall not perish
from the Earth. No matter how you
slice it, old Abe was right on.
Jim and Donna should help the
county and resign. Let our new.
commissioners govern without
restraints. That's the American
way.

HigherLove lives up to its-name


EDITOR:
I was a client at the HigherLove
Mission Outreach for approximate--
ly seven months. I found out that
the mission has several programs
for people that have had problems
and needed help. I was introduced-
to Deborah Maletic, executive
director, and to one of the transi-
tional programs offered at the mis-
sion. I want to publicly thank
Deborah Maletic, her husband Eno
Maletic and, last but not least,-Dale
Baker, chef extraordinaire.
This program came to my aid at
a very crucial time in my life. It
allowed me to get my life reorgan-
ized, focused, and plan for my .
future. It allowed me to save up the
money I needed to acquire a nice
little apartment, and helped to
rebuild the -self esteem I needed to
move on with my life. I thank God
for Debbie and those who work -


with her with.this program.
The seven months I was there as
a client, working on a daily basis
with Debbie was a wonderful expe-
rience in human compassion. I will
continue work with the mission,
and hope in some small way help
keep a program like hers alive and
doing what it truly does best -
helping people.
I hope the good people in
Marathon know what kind of self-
less passion this woman has for-
those less fortunate in our commu-
nity who really need her help. I
hope the citizens of Marathon can
understand the need for programs
like Debbie's and help support the
concept behind this mission and
her efforts to help the less fortu-
nate in our community. God bless
Debbie.

The Key West World Championship, which concluded Sunday, was the perfect way
for'Keys marine-propulsion students to learnrabout state-of-the-art boats.

Keys students get real lesson in propulsion


EDITOR:
To John Carbonell of Super Boat
International and Kurt Lewin of First State
Bank and all of their staffs, a big thank
you for hosting 138 marine-mechanics stu-
dents from Coral Shores, Marathon and
Key West high schools at the offshore
world championship boat races in Key
West for the fourth year in a row.
The race drivers and crews helped the
students complete an assignment about the


different types of state-of-the-art-race
boats and drive systems. Then the students
were given the VIP treatment with lunch
and three of the most exciting races they
will not soon forget.
Thanks again for the support these
organizations have continued to show to
your Monroe County School District.

Land Trust has always been accountable


EDITOR:
Your report Oct. 29 about appointments
to the Key West Redevelopment Trust Fund
Advisory Committee by the City
SCommission contains two inaccuracies
SThe first is that the Bahama Conch
Community Land Trust was never responsi-
ble for allocating tax-increment funding
(TIF) dollars. It wasn't; the allocation of the
TIF money is and always has been the
responsibility of the Key West Local
Redevelopment Authority.
The LRA is made up of the six city com-
missioners and the mayor, who convene
separately as the LRA when dealing with
matters related to the redevelopment dis-.
tricts, in this case, Bahama Village. The
new advisory committee will also make
recommendations to the LRA, but the LRA
will still make the final decisions about
which projects to fund.
Designation of the Land Trust as agent
for the LRA came.about as a result of the
city's application to receive the Truman
Waterfront land from the Navy at no cost in,
what is known as an economic development
conveyance. Bahama Village was declared
"blighted," an action that strengthened the
city's application for conveyance of the
property.
One aspect of the application required by
the Navy was to establish the redevelop-
ment agency. Tax-increment districts were
created in which property owners within
those districts are assessed a small addition-,


al amount on their property taxes. The
money raised in that manner must be spent
in the district in which it is raised, and for
specific purposes permitted by the state leg-
islation that allows for the tax.
In the early years, the TIF dollars in
Bahama Village were pledged to repay a $2.5
million loan from the Monroe County Land
Authority. The loan enabled the Land Trust
to acquire several distressed properties, all of
which are deed-restricted to be permanently
affordable under government guidelines.
Later, the LRA redirected the excess
over the bond repayments to a variety of
redevelopment projects.
Although the Land Trust was entitled to
apply for and receive a portion of the TIF
money for its redevelopment and rehabilita-
tion projects, and did receive some funding,
the city withheld reimbursements for
authorized projects for several years. When
the Land Trust board directed a newly,
strengthened staff to document and justify
reimbursement for past expenses, the LRA
finally authorized reimbursements.
That is. the heart of the second inaccura-
cy in your report. The Land Trust has
always accounted for its use of TIF money,
in fact, for every dollar it has received from
any source. Out books are independently
audited every year and those audits have
always been furnished to the city.'

Boater dies


after fall


A SALUTE TO VETERANS: The annual Veterans Day parade rolls through Marathon
Saturday. Similar celebrations occurred throughout the Keys, with a parade.down Duval
Street in Key West on Tuesday and a solemn ceremony at Founders Park in Islamorada.
Friday, Stanley Switlik Elementary School in Marathon held its annual Red, White and Blue
Day to thank veterans ,active-duty military and those working in emergency services.


It happened on
Blackwater Sound
Keynoter Staff

A boater died Sunday after
falling from his dinghy just off
Key Largo.
The victim was described as a
67-year-old man, but -his identity
has not been released pending
notification of relatives.
"It's our understanding that he
is not originally from the United
States and his family may in the
United Kingdom," said Officer
Jorge Pino, a spokesman for the
Florida Fish and Wildlife'
Conservation Commission, the
investigating agency.
The incident occurred around
9:10 p.m. Sunday in Blackwater


Sound, about three-quarters of a
mile west of Jewfish Creek
bridge, according to a U.S. Coast
Guard account.
The man reportedly was
climbing from a sailboat to his
dinghy. The dinghy overturned,
throwing him into the water.
A woman aboard the boat
jumped into the water to help the
victim but she wasn't strong
enough to lift him back into the
sailboat. Other boaters assisted.
The man was brought to
shore, where an ambulance
awaited. Paramedics reported the
man was dead by' the time they
reached them.
Cause of death was pending a
report from the Monroe County
Medical Examiner's Office.

It's lines out


for fishing mag


Weekly journal
stops publishing,
restart possible
By KEVIN WADLOW
Senior Staff Writer
kwadlow@keynoter.com

The Weekly Fisherman, a
popular voice of the Florida Keys
sportfishing scene for more than
a decade, went silent Oct. 30.
"A lot of people miss it
already," said Daniel Kern, a
Marathon rod-and-reel repairman
who wrote 90 "Average Joe"
columns for the Weekly.
"It's where the fishermen went
to read the stories and look at the
fish pictures," Kern said. "It was
a good fishing newspaper."
The Weekly Fisherman fell
victim to the previous ownpr's
bitter divorce case and the falter-
ing economy, current owner Tom
Vana said.
The Oct. 30 edition, Volume
10, No. 49, was the last for the
foreseeable future.
"I'm hopeful it will be back.in
some form," said Vana, a Cape
Coral contractor who owns vaca-
tion-rental units in Marathon:.
"Although I put a lot of
money into it, the paper really
belongs to the community," Vana
said. "We had a lot of good peo-
ple writing for us."
Each week, the free publica-
tion was picked up by anglers at
dozens of dockside and resort
locations throughout the Keys.
The Weekly Fisherman show-
cased photos of the latest catches
and current fishing reports from
flats guides and offshore cap-
tains, along with tournament
results and freewheeling columns
like "The Irritable Chef."
Press runs ran from 16,000 to
22,000 copies each issue,
depending on the season.
"Between the print edition and
the Web site, I'd estimate we had
40,000 to 50,000 readers every
edition," former editor Rich
Anderson said. "People keep ask-
ing me what happened to it."
Weekly Fisherman founder
Darryl Wheatley sold the publi-
cation to Vana Publishing about
18 months ago.
Vana said the financial situa-
tion when he took over was much


worse than he expected. Printers
were angry over unpaid bills and
expensive publication software
had to be newly- licensed.
Vana said he "had everything
just about cleared up" when the
Weekly Fisherman became a cen-
terpiece of Wheatley's con-
tentious divorce proceedings.
After unsuccessfully trying to
extricate the magazine from the
domestic case, Vana said, no
solution seemed in sight.
Attempts by the Keynoter to
reach Wheatley, who has moved
out of the county, were not suc-
cessful.
Vana was planning to relaunch
the Weekly Fisherman as a new
publication called Hook Up when
the bottom fell out of the adver-
tising market among recreation-
ally oriented businesses, Vana
said. "It's an unfortunate situa-
tion," he said.
The Weekly Fisherman office
across from Florida Keys
Marathon Airport is closed and
shuttered, and the telephone has
been disconnected.

confirms


deal

Due diligence
now under way
for Fishermen's
By RYAN McCARTHY
rmccarthy@keynoter.com

Baptist Health South Florida
confirmed Tuesday what it's
been hinting at for months: It
wants to take control of
Fishermen's Hospital in
Marathon --sort of.
Baptist announced it's signed
a non-binding letter of intent
with Health Management
Associates, the hospital's current
lessee, to "assume responsibility
for the operations of Fishermen's
Hospital."
Baptist Health spokeswoman
Sheila Konczewski said the
agreement is subject to Baptist
completing due diligence and
"certain other conditions."
Rumors have been swirling
for months that Baptist, which
operates Mariners Hospital in
Tavemier along with major hos-
pitals in Miami-Dade County,
intends to buy out the contract of
Health Management Associates.
The Naples-based company's
agreement with Fishermen's runs
through June 30, 2011.
The relationship between
HMA and Fishermen's Hospital
Association, a nonprofit organi-
zation that owns the hospital, has
been strained for some time.
One factor driving a buyout is
believed to be the hospital's abil-
ity to obtain a "critical access"
designation, made possible by
the Medicare Rural Hospital
Flexibility Program. According
to the Tennessee Hospital
Association, critical access is "an
alternative for small, rural hospi-
tals that creates the potential for
enhanced reimbursement from
Medicare."
In August, the Internal
Revenue Servidce stripped
Fishermen's Hospital Inc. of its
501(c)3 tax-exempt status. But
Schindler said there will be no
tax implications since the exemp-
tion is surrendered if the associa-
tion partners with a non-exempt
entity such as Baptist.

All marina,
port workers
will need them
By KEVIN WADLOW
Senior Staff Writer
kwadlow@keynoter.com

Port and marina workers in the
Florida Keys have two months to
obtain their federal identification
card, according to the latest infor-
mation available from .the
Department of Homeland
Security.
The compliance date for the
Transportation Worker Identifica-
tion Credential, better known as
TWIC, is listed as Jan. 13, 2009,
for port and transportation work-
ers at the Key West port.
The TWIC card will be
required of everyone holding
U.S. Coast Guard-issued
mariners credentials (including
common captain's licenses), and
people who need unescorted
access to secured ports.
For example, captains and
crewmen from all 36 Key West
fishing charterboats will be
required to pay the $132.50 cost
of the card, which includes a
background check.
As of April 15, 2009, all
mariners, port workers and truck-
ers entering U.S. ports will be
required to have the biometric
card.
Nationally, an estimated 1.2
million people will need a TWIC
card a photograph identifica-
tion that includes a thumbprint,
the biometric information.

An original nationwide dead-
line of Sept. 25, 2008, was aban-
donedby the DHS when it
became apparent the card pro-
cessing and manufacture would"
take longer than expected.
Congress passed the law
requiring the TWIC as part of
national security protections in
January 2007.
"We cannot, and must not,
continue with business as usual in
the area of mariner credential-
ing," Coast Guard official Calvin
Lederer testified before Congress
in 2005.
"The government is-trying to
secure our ports. With the terror-
ism and everything that's gone
on, I don't think the cards are a
bad idea," said Bob Jones, execu-
tive director of the Southeastern
Fisheries Association, a commer-
cial fishing group based in
Tallahassee.
"If you're going to be working
in a port, they flat need to know
who you are," said Jones, who
has met with Homeland Security
staff on the identification require-
ments.
A local TWIC enrollment cen-
ter is at 3125 Riviera Drive .in-
Key West. Hours of operation are
weekdays 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.
Applicants can schedule an
appointment and save time dur-
ing enrollment, workers and

Popham offers historic Moore home to city


Marathon's 1st
school teacher
lived there
By RYAN McCARTHY
rmccarthy@keynoter.com

A historic house once
owned by Marathon's first
schoolteacher, Sue M. Moore,
may soon be relocated if the
city is willing to finance the
move.
The house, at 2109
Overseas Highway, across
from the U.S. Coast Guard sta-
tion, was most recently used as


an office building for Sea Air
Land Technologies. The one-
acre property has been vacant
since SALT owner Bob
Williams sold it to Marathon
Boat Yard owner Bruce
Popham.
Popham said he needs to
clear room for a new 10,000-
square foot West Marine store,
on which construction' is
scheduled to begin in February
or March 2009. He has offered
to donate the house to Crane
Point Hammock.
"They were not in a finan-
cial position to be able to deal


with it," Popham said.
"Because of the historic
nature, I thought the best thing
was to put it in a position
where people can use it."
Popham then spoke to
Councilman Pete Worthington,
who brought the idea forward
at Monday's regular City
Council meeting. The council
directed staff to find out
whether the house is sound
enough to be moved, possible
locations for it and what the
cost would be to move it.
Worthington said Crane
Point would be an ideal loca-
tion for the house.
"Crane Point has a lot of

acreage; it's a history museum
and would make a great loca-
tion," Worthington said. He
also mentioned Pigeon Key as
a possible destination.
The house was built using
Dade County pine and still sits
on its original foundations,
Williams said.
"It's going to last a long
time because the wood is so
hard now," Williams said,
adding- the home sits on coral
rock and concrete pilings.
According to Middle Keys
historian Dan Gallagher,
Moore came to Marathon in
1931 with husband Sam
Murray Moore at the age of 56.

She taught there until damage
from the 1935 hurricane sea-
son caused the Monroe County
School Board to close the
Marathon school.
Moore then taught on Big
Pine Key, taking a ferry each
Monday, with Marathon's two
eligible students and spending
the week there before return-
ing with them on Friday.
Moore even taught as far south
as Summerland Key before a
school was built in Marathon
in the early 1940s.
In November 1946, the
School Board allocated
$23,000 to build a new school-
house. The city's first real
school building, it was named
the Sue Moore School. Moore
taught one year there before
retiring in 1947.
That old school is now a
state Department of Trans-
portation yard.










Refuge marks a century on Saturday


The Florida Keys .Eco-
Discovery Center in Key West
hosts a public celebration Saturday
to honor the 100th anniversary of
the Key West National Wildlife
Refuge Saturday.
Then-President Teddy Roosevelt
created the refuge Aug. 8, 1908, in
response to the -burgeoning fashion
trend of adorning ladies' hats with
the feathers of colorful migratory
birds. The practice had such a neg-
ative impact on various species'
populations that Roosevelt was
forced to protect and preserve the
birds' breeding grounds.
The refuge comprises a series
of low-lying islands that extend
westward from Key West to the
Marquesas Keys. It's a haven for
many species of shore and wad-
ing birds that use the refuge for
nesting, feeding and resting.
Green, hawksbill and logger-
head marine turtles utilize the
beaches and nearshore waters,
and recently a population of the


endangered Miami blue butterfly
has been discovered on one of the
islands.
Saturday's event runs from 10
a.m. to 5 p.m. The first 300 fami-
lies attending the free celebration
will receive a custom tote bag
with a turtle patch, pin and puppet.
Twenty organizations are
scheduled to participate in an
environmental fair with booths
representing various segments of
the Keys' and Florida's natural
environment. The Key West post
office will commemorate the
anniversary with a custom one-
time stamp cancellation.
Throughout the day there will
be continuous multimedia pre-
sentations of "Wild ,About
Teddy," cartoons about Roosevelt
and his actions in establishing
national wildlife refuges.
A dedication ceremony com-
memorating the 100th anniver-


sary is scheduled from 1i am. to
noon. The Steel Your Heart Band
from Gerald Adams Elementary
School and the Bahama Village
Choir will play and sing the
national anthem. A plaque will
be unveiled by Florida Keys
National Wildlife Refuges
Manager Anne Morkill, Key
West Mayor Morgan McPherson
will read a proclamation, and
local dignitaries will be invited to
say a few words.
The winner of a junior high
school essay competition will
read his essay on the importance
of protecting our marine waters.
From noon to 1 p.m., the Steel
Your Heart band will play. At 1, a
*children's reading of the book
"She Has a Dead Bird in Her
Hat" will be held.
A costumed Theodore
Roosevelt teddy bear and a blue
goose the symbol for the
National Wildlife Refuge System
will roam the grounds.


From 1 to 5 p.m., various
speakers will give presentations
about various wildlife and their
habitats in the Keys.
At 7 p.m., the refuge's support
arm, Friends and Volunteers of
Refuges (FAVOR) will host a
showing of the Al Gore award-
winning "Inconvenient Truth"
about the ramifications of human
actions that increase global
warming.


The Key West National
Wildlife Refuge is one of four
national refuges in the Keys. The
others are the Crocodile Lake
National Wildlife Refuge in Key
Largo, the National Key Deer
Refuge on Big Pine Key and the
Great White Heron National
Wildlife Refuge, running from
Marathon south to Key West on
the Gulf of Mexico side.

Key West is looking to go
back to its cigar-making past.
Tuesday, the City Com-
mission is expected to approve
the construction of a replica
cigar-makers' cottage.at the Gato
Village. Pocket Park at 616
Louisa St. The goal is to preserve
the .historical function of the
property and support the place-
ment of art in public places.
The idea to create the replica
came from Bruce Neff and his
wife Patricia Madiedo, who is
descended from the Gato cigar-
making family. The Art in Public
Places Board, the Historical
Architecture Review Committee
and the city's Building Depart-
ment all have given their initial
approval.
Eduardo H.. Gato built his
namesake cigar factory, now the
home to various Monroe County
administrative offices, in 1883. By
1885, Gato employed more than
40 cigar makers who, along with
their families, were housed in an
area called Bario de Gato, which
surrounded the factory and is cur-
rently the site of First State Bank.
Neff said referring to the hey-
day of cigar making in Key West,
"This part of history isn't repre-
sented, but it's a very important
part of Key West."
Neff, who referred to cigar-
makers' cottages as "the first
workforce housing in Key West,"
noted that many Cubans today
think only of Castro's Cuba and
don't "think about a free Cuba."
Gato's cigar makers donated
one day's wage per week to Key
West-based fraternal societies and,
according to Neff, "That money


was funneled back to the revolu-
tion" being fought against Spain.
"They [Key West Cuban free-
dom-fighters] were really able to
finance the revolution that over-
threw Spain. In some ways, the
cigar is directly related to Cuban
freedom."
The project is estimated to
cost around $9,000 and all of that
is being funded through local
contributions of money, services
and materials. The final construct
will be a facade; the windows and
doors will not function.
The resolution to approve the
construction is co-sponsored by
commissioners Clayton Lopez and
Teri Johnston. Lopez, who is pater-
nally related to a Key West cigar
maker, sees the project as a way of
preserving Key West's history!
"That's what was on the prop-
erty before," said Lopez.
Historical aspects notwith-
standing, Johnston said, "One of
the things I'd like to do in the
town is bring some art back, real-
ly focusing on the uniqueness
and character of Key West. It's a
fun and worthwhile project."
Contributors include Home
Depot, Strunk's Ace Hardware,
Page's Paint, Keys Energy
Services and Toppino and Sons
construction. This cottage, unlike
its predecessors, will be capable
of withstanding 155 mph winds.
There is still a funding gap of
$4,000 and anyone who wants to
contribute can stop by First State
Bank and donate money into an
account for the Gato Park Cigar
Maker's Cottage Exhibit.
The City Commission meets
at 6 p.m. Tuesday at Old City
Hall on Greene Street.

Service is today
for couple who died

A memorial service is planned
for 4:30 p.m. today at St. Paul's
Episcopal Church, 401 Duval St.,
for Capt. Bennett and Barbara
-Taylor of Key West.
The Taylors were killed in a
plane crash Friday outside of
Gainesville. The cause of the
crash is still under investigation
by the National Transportation
Safety Board.
The couple chartered a plane
with Air Key West after receiving
word that a kidney for Bennett,
who had been awaiting a trans-
plant, was available in Gainesville.
Also killed in the accident was
pilot Andrew Ricciuti, who
fought with the U.S. Navy in
Operation Desert Storm and had
been living in Key West as a char-
ter pilot.
No funeral arrangements were
available for Riccuiti.

'Vandenberg' funds
might be released

The state Office of Tourism,
Trade and Economic Develop-
ment reportedly is getting ready
this week to release $1.6 million
to the city of Key West to help
finance the scuttling of the USS
Hoyt Vandenberg as an artificial
reef off Key West.

On Oct. 27 .in Norfolk, Va.,
U.S. District Court Judge Mark

mer military vessel to be auc-
tioned in late December to recoup
the $1,639,457.97 owed to


Colonna's Shipyard and various
subcontractors for cleaning and
storing the ship.
The city of Key West owns the
Vandenberg. The city contracted
with Artificial Reefs of the Keys


to transform the vessel into an
artificial reef to be sunk seven
miles off Key West. Artificial
Reefs, in turn, contracted with
Reefmakers LLC to get the ship
cleaned.


Colonna's, W3 Shipyards,

LUNG 0

CANCER

AWARENESS
M 0 N T H.

LUNG CANCER
Lung cancer begins in the cells that make up the tissues
of the lungs. Normal, healthy cells grow and divide to
form new cells as the body needs them. If new cells form
when the body doesn't need them, and old or damaged
cells don't die as they should, the build-up of extra cells
often forms a mass of tissue called a tumor.Tumor cells
can be benign (non cancerous) or malignant (cancerous).
Cancer cells spread by breaking away from the original'
tumor.

SYMPTOMS
Early lung cancer often does not cause symptoms. But as
the cancer grows, common symptoms may include:
* A cough that gets worse Coughing up blood
or does not go away Constant chest pain
*Breathing trouble, such as Weight loss with no
shortness of breath known cause
* Feeling very tired all the time

RISK FACTORS
* Tobacco smoke Asbestos Air Pollution
* Family history of lung cancer Age over 65
Tobacco smoke causes most cases of lung cancer. If
you are interested in information and help to quit
smoking, contact any of these local organizations:
Keyswide: Florida Keys Area Health Education Center
(AHEC) 743-7111

Movie to be made in Keys

'Mile Zero'
to be filmed ..
in early '09
By MARGARET MENGE
mmenge@keynoter.com


Key West will be setting for a
major motion picture to be
filmed here in the late winter or
early spring, according to the
Tourist Development Council.
The movie, to be called "Mile
Zero," is based on a book by the
same name written by Thomas
Sanchez, a resident of Key West.
Sanchez's novel, about an
American drinking away his sor-
rows in Key West in the 1970s,
was called "dazzling" by The
New York Times Book Review
and "mythmaking and mysterial"
by Vanity Fair.
"It is really a Key West
movie," says Rita Brown, who
heads the film commission
department at the TDC.
"Mile Zero" is to be produced
by Hispa Films, by producer
Gabriel Mena. On its Web site,
Hispa Films lists offices in
Miami, and also in Los Angeles
and Spain and three films now
in production. "Mile Zero" is one
of them.
The news of the film to be
made here comes on the heels of
news of a steep drop-off in
tourism in September of this
year. It is expected that the film-
ing will help boost the economy


See MOVIE / 21


SI.. ,

The novel'Mile Zero' by Thomas Sahchez was published in 1990
to rave reviews. It has been adapted for the screen and is to
be filmed here in early 2009, if all goes as planned.

MOVIE / From 20

of the Florida Keys in both the
short run and the long run.
"It will be great on many lev-
els," says Brown, who helped
guide the producers in getting a
permit from the city of Key West,
to shoot the the first footage here
during this year's Fantasy Fest
parade.
Brown says there are a num-
ber of ways the filming of a
major movie could help business-
es that depend on visitors. The
most obvious is heads in beds.
"For a film crew it could be
hundreds and hundreds," she told
the Keynoter. And there will also
be jobs for some local residents.
Brown says with Key West's
small.pool of people with film
industry experience, a studio
would usually have to import a lot
of workers from California,
Miami or New York. But produc-
ers would likely hire a number of
locals to help with security
details, emergency response, and
maybe to work as extras.
There's also, of course, the
spending: Hundreds more people
staying in the Keys for a month
or more would benefit bars,
restaurants and grocery stores.
Brown said the average impact
on the local economy of a shoot
that lasts a couple of weeks would
usually be about $2 million to $3
million.
Then there's the longer-term
economic benefit which
depends, of course, on how many
people see a movie.
The TDC hired an outside


Curtain goes up on Keys


Here's a good sampling of
movies made in whole or part
in the Keys:
"The Pacifier" with Vin
Diesel.
"2 Fast 2 Furious" with
Paul Walker.
"Red Dragon" with
Anthony Hopkins, Haney
Keitel. Edward Norton, Ralph
Fiennes and Mary Louise
Parker.
"License to Kill" with
Timothy Dalton.
'The Breakers" %\ith
Gene Hackman.
"The Crew" with Bun
Reynolds. Richard Dreyfus'
and Jennifer Till.
"True Lies" with Arnold
Schwarzenegger and Jamie
Lee Curtis.
"Up Close and Personal"

firm to assess the economic
impact of MTV's "The Real
World: Key West," which was
filmed in a house in Key Haven
in 2005 and aired in 2006.
"It was very high. It was
unusually high," says Brown of
the numbers. "We were all happi-
ly surprised,"
Brown remembers the analysis
showing an increase of 20-30 per-
cent in visitors to the Keys from
people who watched the show.
It is expected that the majority
of the shooting of "Mile Zero" will
take place sometime in early 2009,
between February and April, in


with Robert Redford and
Michelle Pfeiffer.
"Speed 2" with Sandra
Bullock
"Drop Zone" with
. \esle. Snipes.
"Matinee" with John
Goodman
S"'Spanish Prisoner" with
Sieve Martin.
"Blood &. Wine" with
Jack Nicholson, Michael Caine
and Jennifer Lopez.
-PT 109" with Cliff
Robertson.
"Cnss-Cross' with Goldie
Hao n and Keith Carradine
Of course, Humphrey
Bogait ftrst made the Keys
famous -in the movie "Key
Largo," about a criminal holed
up in an Upper Keys motel.


Key West and also in other loca-
tions in the Keys and in Miami.
It is not yet -known who will
star in "Mile Zero." And Brown
cautions that things change quick-
ly in the film industry and that the
shooting in Key West is not a
dead-on certainty. She told the
Keynoter she doesn't count on
anyone coming to shoot here until
she sees "the whites of their eyes."
The city of Key West has
processed 21 film permits so far
this year though only one for a
feature-length .film, to Hispa
Films to do the Fantasy Fest
shoot for "Mile Zero."

Notice and Public Explanation of a
Proposed Activity in the 100-Year Floodplain

This.is to give notice that the City of Key Colony Beach has conducted an evaluation as
required by Executive Orders 11988 and 11990 in accordance with HUD regulations'at,
24 CFR 55.20 to determine the potential affect that its activity in the floodplain and wet-
land will have on the environment.

The City of Key Colony Beach intends to undertake a project to be funded through a
Community Development Block Grant (CDBG).. The proposed project will assist exist-
ing residences with flood mitigation and drainage improvements through the installation
of approximately 6,200 lineal feet of drainage swales, drainage piping, and infiltration
wells along 1st Street, 2nd Street, 3rd Street, 4th Street, 5th Street, and East Ocean
Drive.

It has been determined that there are no practicable alternatives other than to proceed
with the work. This activity will have no significant impact on the environment for the
following reasons:

This projectwill mitigate existing flood & drainage conditions in a low -
lying area of the City currently experiencing poor drainage and constant
flooding,.

Although the project is located in the 100-year floodplain, the improvements cannot be
undertaken in any other location due to the scope of the project. There are, therefore, no
practicable alternatives.

The proposed improvements conform to applicable floodplain protection standards. The
proposed action will not affect natural or beneficial floodplain values, and residents of
the community will benefit frorfthe project. Failure to provide these improvements
could result in continued flooding and poor drainage conditions for households located
within the proposed service area.

Additional agencies involved in this project include the Florida Department of
Community Affairs and the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development.

Written comments must be received by the City of Key Colony Beach at the following
address on or before November 27, 2008. Please send all written comments to Vickie L.
Bollinger, City Clerk, City of Key Colony Beach, P.O. Box 510141, Key Colony Beach,
FL 33051-0141. A more detailed description of the project and the FIA flood maps are
available for citizen review at City Hall during normal operating hours.

Date issued: November 12, 2008.

In the minds of the Coral
Shores Hurricanes, a second
straight rough football season
could be redeemed with a vic-
tory Friday.
"We've been waiting all
year to go against Marathon,"
said Hurricane head coach
Todd Gideon. "Maybe for
both our teams, this is our
playoff game."
Coral Shores stepped out of
state district play.for the last
two seasons, so the 7'30 p.m.
Friday game at Marathon
High School will be the sea-
son finale.
"No matter what happens
in the season, our guys also
get ready to play their biggest
rivalry game," Gideon said.
"It's always a game with a lot
of tension."
Marathon lost last week to
Parkway Academy, 48-7, and
stands at 5-4. Coral Shores (2-
7) was. blanked, 35-0, last
week at Doral Academy.

afternoon to Edison, 3-0, their
last hope to make the state play-
offs sailing away as junior Cale
Hartle's field-goal attempt sailed
wide at the end of an overtime
shootout.
"It wasn't meant to be," said
coach Jerry Hughes, who
returned after 10 years to guide
the Conchs to a 5-5 record.
The drama played out in the
sunny stadium of Belen Jesuit,
.the other District 16-3A team


involved in a tie-breaking sce-
nario necessitated by th*
Conchs' 23-21 home victory
over Belen Friday night.
All three teams came into
Monday with a 3-2 record, tied
for second place behind
Monsignor Pace.
The Conchs needed to defeat
Edison in a one-quarter game
and then Belen in another one-
quarter game to make the play-
offs.

know more next week, but we
have to play this week."
The Hurricanes host Bay
Point at 5 p.m. Friday at George
M. Barley Jr. Memorial Field in
Tavermer.
At the same time, some of the
soccer squad's most experienced
veterans will be on the bus travel-
ing to the football-season finale at
Marathon High School.
"We just had two guys come'
over after finishing cross country,
and I think we have five guys
over there," Bosque said, nod-
ding toward the football team
practicing on an adjacent field.
Coral Shores is coming off its
best season in a decade, an 11-7
campaign that took the Canes to
the runner-up spot in District 16-
3A and a spot in the state Class
3A regional tournament.
But nine seniors graduated
from that squad, including all-
time Hurricane scoring leader
Mike Loguercio and standout
goalkeeper Richard Fernandez.
And some veterans transferred
or decided not to play a winter
sport.
"We're going to have to take'
our experienced guys and put
them where we need them most,"


Bosque said. "That means
younger guys need to step up."
The situation will be particu-
larly acute Friday when solid per-
formers- like Mike Hampson,
Greg Angel and William Bassett
are still with the football team.
In last week's preseason tour-
nament, Coral Shores lost both
games, 2-0 to Marathon High
School and 4-1 to Miami Country
Day. Steven Lawrence, a fresh-
man forward, scored the only
goal for the Canes. He will start
against Bay Point.
In goal, Bosque is rotating
senior Kiki Jauregui, sophomore
Devin Morris and freshman
Robert Lietaert.
Freshman Tony Papp is anoth-
er freshman expected to see time
on the field.
"We'll try some different
looks," Bosque said. "We never
know what kind of team Bay
Point is going to bring, but I
expect we'll be OK."
Coral Shores finds itself with
familiar company in District 16-
3A, competing against perennial
favorite Gulliver Prep and cor-'
petitive programs at Archbishop
Carroll.
The Hurricanes test the waters
next week, traveling to Ransom
Everglades on Nov. 19.


Conchs end 5-5


CONCHS / From 25

At first, it looked like the
momentum from Friday would
continue. On the game's second
play, Chris Harris intercepted a
pass to give the Conchs a first
down on the Red Raiders' 44-
yard line. Quarterback Stephen
Jones immediately passed to
Ethan McKenzie for a 20-yard
gain.
But a subsequent third-down
pass was dropped by David Lee
on the 10, and then Hartle, after
a bad snap, missed a 44-yard
field-goal try.
Edison then was forced to
punt after a 46-yard apparent
touchdown run by Leon Hatcher
was called back because of hold-
ing.
The Conchs couldn't capital-
ize, and Edison had the ball
again with 4:40 left after recov-
ering a fumble on a lateral. The
Red Raiders then drove 45 yards
to the, Key West 1 before a


fourth-down, 22-yard field-goal
attempt by Reginald Evans
missed as time ran out.
After a coin flip, Edison had
the ball to begin the shootout on
the Key West 10. The Conch
defense stiffened, forcing Evans
to try another 22-yard field goal,
which he made for a 3-0 lead.
Needing a TD to, win or a
field goal to extend the shootout,
the Conchs hopefully lined up at
the Edison 10.
On first down, Alfred
Rahming unstoppable in
recent games was stopped for
no gain. On second down, he
was tackled for a yard loss. On
third down, Jones, trying to pass,
dropped the ball and then recov-
ered it for a three-yard loss. That
left it up to Hartle, but his 31-
yard kick, after a perfect snap
and hold, was wide.
"The kid's done good all
year," Hughes said. "But there
are no guarantees, no matter
how strong the leg is. He'll win
some games for us next year."

Dolphins lost on


way to, in game


By RYAN McCARTHY
rmccarthy@keynoter.com

Not much went right for the
Marathon High School football
team on its visit to Parkway
Academy Friday night includ-
ing the bus ride.
Coach Lance Martin said the
teari's buses drove 30 miles out
of the way and didn't arrive at the
Miramar school until 20 minutes
before kickoff. The Panthers
scored on the first play of the
game and went on to win 48-7.
"Would we have lost?
Probably, but it wouldn't have
been that bad," Martin said. "We
normally warm up for an hour
and 10 minutes. The kids are
used to a routine."
Like another District 16 2B
opponent the Dolphins faced ear-
lier this year University
School Parkway's roster is
almost unrecognizable from a
squad Marathon defeated 14-6
last season. Martin said the team
featured a transfer quarterback,
running back and wide receiver
that were "better than anyone we
saw all year."
Marathon (5-4) moved the
ball well on the ground, Martin
said, but turnovers and failed
fourth-down conversion attempts
stalled many Dolphin drives.
Junior running back A.J.


Freeman ran 14 times for 87
yards, while senior quarterback
Kenny White had 13 carries for
80 yards.
White, 'forced into quarter-
back duty when junior Nyran
Ross went down with a high.
ankle-sprain, was just 1-for-7
passing for three yards and three
interceptions.
The result was a second loss in
district play and elimination from
the state championship tourna-
ment that begins Nov. 21. Had
they beaten Parkway, the
Dolphins would have faced
perennial national power
Pahokee High School in the first
round.
"They're awfully disappoint-
ed,"- Martin said "They really
wanted to have the opportunity to
see them."
But Martin said the team will
now trn its attention to a season-
ending game Friday against Keys
rival Coral Shores High School.
"A lot of these kids haven't
lost to them and we want to go
out on a winning note," Martin
said.
White capped an 85-yard.
drive with a one-yard touchdown
run for Marathon's only score.
Friday's game at Marathon
High School is scheduled to
begin at 7:30 p.m.

Wonderlin and
Guzman lead in
cross country
By RYAN McCARTHY
rmccarthy@keynoter.com

The Marathon High School
cross-country team on Friday-
missed taking both its boys
and girls teams to the Class
1A regional meet next week-
end by just one place.
The boys finished sixth
overall at the District 8 meet,
while the girls, missing two of
their top runners, came in sev-
enth out of nine teams. The
top six teams advanced to the
regionals.
Sophomore Jhonathan
Guzman finished first overall


for the Dolphin boys and 13th
overall out of 63 runners in
19:07. He was followed by
freshman Virgilio Sanchez in
27th (20:30), freshman
Thomas Bowerso.x in 32nd
(20:53), seventh-grader Trevor
Helms in 35th (21:34) and
freshman Marco Ceja in 41st
(22:15).
Almost every Dolphin run-
ner improved his or her per-
sonal best time. Coach Becky
Winter said the team ran the
Palmer Trinity School course
earlier this season and felt
comfortable going in.
"This is a really nice
course, pretty straightforward
and flat," she said.
Sophomore K.elsey
Wonderlin finished 12th over-


all in 23:01 to earn a spot in
the regional, being held
Saturday morning at
Westminster Academy's ath-
letic complex in Lauderdale
Lakes. The top 15 individual
runners advance if their team
doesn't.
"She was so excited
because that was her best time
ever," Winter said.
Sophomore Marisa
Brossard finished 33rd overall
in 25:43, followed by seventh-
grader Nancy Ceja in 35th
(25:45), eighth-grader Ashley
Adamo in 38th (26:07) and
sophomore Ariel Moore in
48th (27:45).
The girls meet is scheduled
to begin at 9 a.m. Saturday
and the boys race is set for
9:45 a.m.

The migration begins


Winter fish
heading south
in big numbers
How's your tackle? Is it all in
working order? Are all of the
guides onr your rod solidly
attached and the finish looking
the way you like it?
Are your reels clean inside
and out with the drags smooth for
the big ones? Is your line new and
in good shape?
I'm not trying to promote
business with these questions but
rather reminding you that we're
on the brink of the winter season
with some of the finest line
pullers available moving into the
area daily.
Now is when we're beginning
to see many of our winter resi-
dents returning to the Keys.
Many have their sets of tackle
they put away for the summer
and are now bringing out of stor-
age for fishing.
The reason.I started out asking
about the condition of your tack-
le is that we hear so many com-
plaints about fish breaking off,
mostly the big ones, because of
equipment failure. This is com-
mon with tackle that was put up
for the summer by our winter res-
idents, and also for those that
haven't had the time to take care
of it otherwise.
Old line is the most common
factor for fish breaking off, and
the cheapest to correct. Even
stripping off 20 or 30 yards will
do wonders for you. If it comes
off looking like a Slinky or is
stiffer than Phyllis Diller's hair,
change it.
In talking with captains all up
along the east and west coasts of
the state which is one of the
best ways to tell when the migrat-
ing species are moving south -
I've had reports of large numbers
of fish headed this way due to the
cooling waters to our north.
Along the East Coast, kingfish
in good numbers showed up
along the shores of Fort
Lauderdale and Miami just this
past weekend. This means that
with the next front or two, we
should be bombarded with
numerous kings to go along with
the scattered amount that have
already found their way to our
waters.

state, the
reports are
even better,
with huge
- and I
'mean huge
- numbers
of cobia
moving
along their
shores and
headed
down the
line.
Guides
I've spoken


to from St. Petersburg, Sarasota,
Boca Grand, Fort Myers and
down to Naples have all reported
a big movement of cobia flowing
southward. All of their wrecks
have been loaded with them for
several weeks now, with a good
showing of a southward move-
ment as evidenced with the huge
buildup just off Naples and the
wrecks to the southwest of them.
These fish are known for mov--.
ing in large schools while they
follow bait fish and staying in
front of the cooler waters they
don't particularly like.
The fronts should be moving
through the area in the next few
weeks and these fish will be liter-
ally be riding the wave into local
waters. Quite a few of them have
already been caught locally but


the big numbers are not here yet.
The best indicator of the big push
is when the fishermen along the
Keys bridges start to find them on
a regular basis.
With the cobia will come the
big pile of mackerel. They are.
due anytime and will literally fill
the bay waters as well as Hawk
Channel and the inside reef line.
Thete has been a good mack-
erel catch already; in fact, it has
been going on for several weeks
in the bay waters.
Following these two species
are the black, red and gag
grouper. They will be headed for
the shallow waters of the bay and
the edge of the reef line following
the same bait fish that all of the
others are.
All of this and more is hap-
pening or about to happen.
We'll start our free fishing
seminars this Sunday at 6 p.m. at
our new location, 3740 Overseas
Highway in Marathon, and will
cover all of the topics concerning
current fishing as well as all of
the new regulations or at least
as many as we can cover in a few
hours.
