Trauma


districts


OK'd

There are some
details still
to be worked out
By RYAN McCARTHY
rmccarthy@keynoter.com

The Monroe County Com-
mission on Monday created two
special taxing districts to fund
TraumaStar, the Sheriff's Office
air ambulance.
Speaking to the commission
in special session, Budget
Director Tina Boan said all coun-
ty residents already pay what
averages out to $8 per $100,000
of taxable value on their property
toward the service. That tax will
go away if the commission
decides to actually use the taxing
districts it created Monday.
"We're setting the capability
today. It can be changed at a later
date and it can also Be eliminated,"
Commissioner Sylvia Murphy
pointed out during the meeting.
In November, voters approved
a nonbinding referendum sup-
porting a tax to fund the service,
which costs the cQunty upward of
$2 million per year to operate.
The county's plan is to charge
property owners below mile
marker 95 as much as $52.50
annually based on a maximum
millage rate of .15, while those
north of mile fiarker 95 would
pay $26.25 based on a millage
rate of .075.
TraumaStar is now running on
a temporary six-month budget.
After that, the tax districts could
be activated.
Boan also recommended a
rate increase from the current
$5,500 liftoff fee and $80 per
mile to $10,000 and $100 per
mile. That's in line with LifeNet,
she said, and would offset fees

It could
forestall
ship's auction
By SEAN KINNEY
skinney@keynoter.com


The Key West Commission
hopes to approve two agreements
Thursday that could trigger $2.6
million in,state funding.as a last-
ditch effort to save the USS Hoyt
Vandenberg from the auction
block.
Without the intervention, the
ship is slated to be sold at auction
Dec. 17 by order of a federal
judge, to satisfy unpaid bills by a
Norfolk, Va., shipyard that
worked to prepare the vessel for
scuttling as an artificial reef
se\ en miles off Key West.
The City Commission con-
venes the special session at 5:30
p.m. Thursday at Old City Hall
on Greene Street.
One commitment for $1.6 mil-
lion comes from the Governor's
Office of Trade, Tourism and
Economic Development and anoth-
er $1 million is funneled through
the Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission.
That money is critical to
resolve disputes with Colonna's
Shipyard in Norfolk over out-
standing payments of $1.6 mil-
lion for services already rendered
in cleaning the ship for sinking.
The commission is expected
to vote only to accept the funds;


no money will actually change
hands, City Manager Jim Scholl
said. Once funding is accepted,
the city and the state can nail
down the specifics of how tlfe
money is spent, he said. "That's
an administrative requirement.
The governor has already-
approved funding."
"You have to do it [approve
the agreements] now just so the
resources are available," Com-
missioner Bill Verge said. He's
the city's point man on the
Vandenberg project.
"All the parties are working
behind the scenes trying to reach
an agreement. Everybody's trying
to figure out exactly how much
they're willing to take before we
go to the judge with a settlement.
It either has to be resolved by then
or the ship goes to the auction
block. I don't think anyone wants
to see it go to auction."
The ship is at Colonna's
Shipyard under custody of a feder-
al court. In Norfolk, the
Vandenberg was cleaned of toxic
PCBs and other pollutants, a
requirement of .the federal
Environmental Protection Agency.
In an Oct. 27 order, a judge
ordered the Vandenberg to be
auctioned to pay for services ren-
dered by the shipyard and sub-
contractors W3 Shipyards,
Venture Dynamics -Enterprises
and Canadian Artificial Reefs
Consultants Inc.
"We'd like to have the oppor-


tunity to keep the Vandenberg
moving forward as an artificial
reef," Scholl said. "Before we go.
to the shipyard and make any
offers, the commission has to
give us [city staff]-permission.
What they've [Colonna's] got on
paper for bills and what they'll
take is what we're figuring out.'"
Ron Jerasa, who works with the
shipyard in business development
and government contracts and is
overseeing the Vandenberg project,
said on Tuesday, "I am not permit-
ted to make any comments."
A.C. MacGraw, spokeswoman
for BB&T, the lead lender in the
bank consortium that's helping to
finance the scuttling, also declined
comment. BB&T, First State Bank
and Orion Bank initially pledged
financing to the tune of $4.6 mil-
lion, but cut funding at $3.2 mil-
lion due to stagnant progress and
skyrocketing expenses.
City. officials said they hope
that with a funding agreement in
place, the ship will be freed from
*federal custody and transported
to Key West. At that point, the
banks will provide- the remainder
of financing, city officials said.
Current cost projections for
scuttling the former military ves-
sel are $8.45 million. The original
estimate was $2.1 million.
Verge said he remains hopeful,
despite the looming auction date,
predicting that the ship will be
towed to the Keys sometime late
in December and that the scut-
Stling will take place in February.


Dismissal is demanded


ELECTION / From 1

Circuit Court, where the
Tallahassee-based state Division
of Elections is based. Circuit
Court judges are state, not local,
officers, and Leon County is
where statewide candidates qual-
ify for the ballot.
Vanden Brook, along with
several voters as co-plaintiffs,
sued Nov. 24 in Monroe County
Circuit Court. She alleges impro-
prieties with absentee ballots and
a lack of recount oversight,
among other things, after Slaton
was declared the winner by four
votes after three recounts, 16,463
to 16,459. She wants either a new
election -or- to be declared the
winner outright.


Vanden 'Brook sued Slaton;
Elections Supervisor Harry
Sawyer; the county Elections
Canvassing Board comprising
judges Ruth Becker and Wayne
Miller, and Tax Collector Dee
Dee Henriquez; and the Florida
Elections Canvassing
Commission,' comprising Gov.
Charlie Crist, Attorney General
Bill McCollum and Lt. Gov. Jeff
Kottkamp.
Vanden Brooks' attorneys are
Kendall Coffey and Thomas
Woods.
Slaton's attorneys - Hugh
Morgan, Alan Eckstein, Mark
Herron and Benedict Keuhne -
are the second to say Vanden
Brook's lawsuit isn't Valid.
On Dec. 2, Chief Assistant
County Attorney Robert Shillinger


wrote to her attorneys that the law-
suit was filed in the wrong court.
He also wrote that her demand for
a speedy hearing - she wants one
by Dec. 15 - would violate his
clients' rights to "file timely
answers prior to proceeding to
final hearing, to say nothing of
their discovery rights."
Shillinger represents Sawyer
and the county Elections
Canvassing Board.
Miami Associate
Administrative Judge Victoria
Platzer. has been assigned the
case because Monroe Circuit
Court Judge David Audlin
recused himself.
Whoever is named judge
would be seated Jan. 6 for a six-
yeabdfter�frni and: earn $140,000

six-month
budget. When
that runs out,
the new taxing
districts could
be activated.


Opting out could cause problems


TRAUMA/ From 1

lost if the special taxing districts
are activated.
The TraumaStar referendum
passed easily Nov. 4 with 55 per-
cent of the vote. However, it
failed to gain support in any of
the 10 northernmost of the coun-
ty's 33 voting precincts.
The Key Largo area is includ-
ed in the Upper Keys Health Care
Taxing District and has had an air
ambulance agreement with
Miami-Dade County Air-Rescue
since the 1990s as well as with
the for-profit. LifeNet.
The danger now, as Boan said,
is what will happen if various
entities decide to opt of the agree-
ment. Incorporated areas such as
Marathon and Islamorada, as
well as special districts like the
Key Largo Fire Rescue and
Emergency Medical Services
District, have the ability to do so.


"Should .one of the cities
decide they don't want to opt in,
then we have this moral obliga-
tion. It's going to get a little bit
hairy," she said, referring to a
possible trauma patient requiring
TraumaStar service in an area not
being taxed.
The commission has the abili-
ty with special taxing districts to
set rates for county residents,
since they'll essentially be subsi-
dizing the service through prop-
erty taxes.
"My interpretation was how
are we going to bill Monroe
County residents who are essen-
tially buying an insurance poli-
cy," Mayor George Neugent told
the Keynoter. "We need to have a
different rate structure for
Monroe County residents as
opposed to a tourist."
"We have nothing to go by and
so we're going to have to make it
up as we go along and it has to be
done carefully," Commissioner

Sylvia Murphy said.
Murphy also raised concerns
about who controls TraumaStar.
She said the Sheriff's Office,
which operates the service in
conjunction with Monroe County
Fire Rescue, should be out of the
picture.
"The Sheriff's Office has
nothing to do with medical and
shouldn't. It has caused a lot of
problems because of personali-
ties," she said.

Driscoll says
visit to be
emotional
By SEAN KINNEY
skinney@keynoter.com

Those who want to honor
our Vietnam veterans but don't
have the opportunity to visit the
Vietnam Veterans Memorial in
Washington, D.C., get the next
best thing this week.
Thanks to the efforts of
Mike Driscoll and the Key:
West Military Affairs
Committee, a replica of the
Vietnam Veterans Memorial,
known as The Wall, is stopping
in the Southernmost City
beginning Thursday. It'll be
open for viewing 24 hours a
day at Key West High School
until Dec. 14.
The traveling wall, 370 feet'
long and 80 percent the size of
the original, bears the names of
more than 58,000 men and
women who died in the
Vietnam War.
The wall will come down
U.S. 1 from the mainland early
Thursday morning. Plans call
for a Key West police escort to
meet with the wall transport
team at 9 a.m. at U.S. 1 and the
entrance to Key Haven.
The opening ceremony is
scheduled for 9 a.m. Friday


with retired U.S. Marine Corps
Col. Gerry Berry serving as
guest speaker.
Driscoll views.the traveling
wall as a mechanism for people
all over the country to remem-
ber the loss of life associated
with the highly controversial
war and even connect with
loved ones.
"It's going to be emotional
for a lot of people," he said.
"Just about everyone knows
someone that knows someone
that's on the wall."
Don Allen, chief executive
officer of American Veterans
Traveling Tribute, the Minnesota
company that manages the
exhibit, has worked with
Driscoll to add Key West to its
nationwide tour.
"This is not just for the vet-
erans," Allen said. "This is for
the whole community to come
out and understand the real cost
of freedom."
Driscoll, who spent 32 years
in the Navy, worked to bring
the wall to Key West 10 years
ago.
"I thought it was something
that needed to happen," he said.
On the last stop, "It was very
well received. It's a very wel-
coming community for the
proper causes. They're very
patriotic in this town."
The exhibit will be dis-

played on the practice fields
behind Key West High School
on 'Flagler Avenue. Principal
John Walsh supports Driscoll's
efforts.
"We're giving him a place to
do it. It was a lot of work
because the demand for the
wall to visit a community is
tremendous."
In addition to the wall, the
exhibit includes art pieces and a
display called the Cost of
Freedom, depicted as nine gold
dog tags, that remembers those
who died in the line of service
from Vietnam up until 9/11.
The cost to bring the wall to
a community is $9,000; that
includes everything from hous-
ing the workers to the electrici-
ty needed to run the lights.
Driscoll received donations
from local businesses and pri-
vate residents.
"People from all walks of
life here in Key West" loaned
monetary support, he said.
"There's a lot of positive feed-
back." The Doubletree Grand
Key Resort has donated lodg-
ing.
The full-size wall, located
near the Lincoln Memorial and
maintained by the National
Park Service, was dedicated in
1982 arid receives an estimated
3 million visitors every year.
Driscoll got the idea to bring
the traveling wall to the Keys
after visiting the real thing.

Safe Harbor in limbo


By RYAN McCARTHY
rmccarthy@keynoter.com

A new Deep Port Harbor zon-
ing category for Stock Island is
being scrapped.
That means it's nearly back to
square one when'it comes to a
proposed redevelopment by New
Stock Island Properties:
At Safe Harbor, New Stock
Island wants to build a 300-room
hotel, docks, restaurants, shops
and a boardwalk, and include a
-commercial fishing component.
To get approval, the developer
sought a change to the county
land-use plan creating the Deep
Port. Harbor designation.
On Dec. 3, the County
Commission refused to amend
the county land-use plan by creat-
ing the Deep Port Harbor catego-
ry - which would have applied
only to New Stock Island .- and
instead directed the developer to
submit a development agreement
that's consistent with current
building rules.
"My preference was to deal
with this project in a develop-
ment agreement environment
versus amending a county plan
that has countywide applica-
tions," county Growth
Management Director Drew
Trivette told the Keynoter. He
said it was the state Department
of Community Affairs' idea to
create a new zoning category for
Stock Island's deep port.
"Stock Island is unique for
that reason," Trivette said of the
area's working waterfront, "but
we don't need to write rules and
regulations only available to one
property owner."
Safe Harbor is the only deep-
water port in the county other
than Key West.
Trivette says the direction now
from the County Commission,
which' met Monday and
addressed the issue yet again, is
to rework a proposal with New
Stock Island into something more
suitable. He said he hopes the
commission can hold a workshop
in January to discuss changes
staff'will make.
Even though he opposed it, on
Dec. 3, Trivette offered an obvi-
ously apprehensive recommenda-
tion to the commission to change
the land-use plan; he says he's
glad it didn't pass.
The recommendation was
based on direction given at a con-
troversial Feb. 4 meeting in
which- the commission - allowed-


wholesale revisions written by
attorneys representing Robbie's
Marina to make changes to what
was then supposed to be a law to
protect the traditional uses of
working waterfronts, such as fish
houses.
"Much of these issues are pol-
icy decisions that staff just can't
make," Trivette said. "The com-
mission had told me quite plainly
[on Feb. 4] that I was to go and
make this work and so that's what
I did."
Commissioner Mario Di
Gemiaro, along with then-com-
missioners Sonny McCoy and.
Dixie Spehar, voted to add the
language despite not reading it
before voting.
New Stock Island attorney
David Paul Horan said it's not
right to treat.the only deep-water
harbor in the county the same as
other areas: He also said the
developers have no intention of
building 800 units there, which
apparently would have been
allowed if the land plan were
changed.
"It's strictly a flight of fantasy.
It will never happen and every-
one knows that," he said.

Keys Opinion


Protecting waterfront

was original intent

Sometimes, back to basics is the best course when faced with
conflicting interests and muddled thinking.
That's the advice we offer to the Monroe County
Commission asit looks for a new version of a plan to help pro-.
tect working waterfronts.
Monday, commissioners discussed an amendment to Monroe
County's comprehensive plan developed to help Stock Island
redevelopment.
Concerns about some of the incentives, especially any vari-
ance on height restrictions and density, caused the commission
to balk at any further work on that much-amended document.
That shouldn't mean abandoning the idea of providing incen-
tives for-private owners to help protect working waterfronts.
Otherwise, the siren call of big profits for commercial develop-
ment dooms the few working waterfront marinas and docks we
have left.
The problem is not unique to the Keys, of course. In fact,
Florida voters in November overwhelmingly approved an
amendment to the state Constitution that provides a tax break
specifically for owners of boatyards and certain other water-
front businesses.
Instead of being forced to assess those properties at highest
and best use, which triggers crippling property tax bills,
appraisers can use current use to set property values. This was
hailed as critical to save struggling marine businesses statewide
that can't compete with condo developers.
Sherry Popham, a former member of the county Planning
Commission who helped draft the county's initial ordinance to
protect the traditional uses of working waterfronts, affirms the
need for public facilities like restaurants, lodging and dockage
alongside traditional waterfront businesses to preserve what we
have left.
That was the plan brought to the County Commission in
February, only to have attorney Jerry Coleman add a raft of
last-minute changes.
Popham resigned her Planning Commission post in protest,
the day after the County Commission - on a 3-2 vote -
endorsed the compromised plan.
Well, a lot has happened since that critical vote - including
the ouster of commissioners Dixie Spehar and Sonny McCoy,
who were part of that 3-2 voting bloc.
With commissioners Kim Wigington and Heather Carruthers
both now raising questions about Stock Island redevelopment
plans, and urging a countywide approach rather than spot zoning
for Stock Island, we think the process is back on sounder footing.
Bring back a revised plan, one that's faithful to the original
idea - how do we create incentives for private property own-
ers to help preserve the Keys' working waterfront?
This is a critical turning point. Let's not mess this up again.

Buying used gas-powered cars saves city money


EDITOR:
I am commenting on the opinion "Global
warming is hardly a joke" by Mr. Welber in
the Dec. 3 edition.
Mr. Welber's opinion is a slam to the con-
scious efforts of our new city government to
greatly help get our city and taxpayers
through a difficult financial period in our
history. Many people reading this probably
haven't really experienced the bad times we
now are in. Our 40-year-old children certain-
ly hadn't and everyone, rich and poor, is
conserving their assets to the best of their
ability. I believe that is what Marathon is
doing.
I personally believe it was a wonderful
move for Marathon to purchase the police
cruiser with 91,000 miles and which gets
only 15 mpg in the city. I ran some simple
numbers from a cost-saving standpoint and
the results are interesting.
The city saved approximately $30,000 by
not purchasing a flex vehicle. That amounts
to 15,789 gallons of fuel at $1.90 a gallon
available from the savings that can be put
into that police cruiser. Now, I don't know
the average mileage per day the cruiser in
Marathon would travel, but if we use a gen-
erous amount of 200 miles per day in our
city, this savings will be enough to power the
vehicle for 1,187 days or 3 1/4 years. What a
great move by our city leaders.
Now, when that time elapses, electric-
powered cruisers will be available and
Marathon won't be stuck with a fleet of pol-
luting gasoline-powered vehicles.
As for global warming, most scientists do
not agree with that theory, and it is still a
theory. Most do agree the earth goes through
lengthy cycles of.very minor climate
changes, both up and down. Ask the recent
arrivals from up north if this November has-
n't been the coldest they can remember; most

Cable should
bring back the listings
EDITOR:
As a resident of a trailer park in this com-
munity, I am appalled with the audacity of
Comcast to omit the TV guide off Channel
18 and move it to a channel that basic' and
advanced basic, which we pay for, are unable
to get without purchasing the new digital box
for another charge.
Since there is no competition in cable, we
are caught between a rock and hard place.
The cable industry keeps raising the rates
and depleting service. In a time of financial
downturns and when people are locked into
Social Security, I believe they should take
better care of their customers and stop taking
pictures of them giving money back to the
community that they overcharged us and try-
ing to give themselves a better image.
Cut the rates and everyone benefits.

Marathon


Keys people believe it has been colder here.
As for fires in California, they have them
every year and arsonists are to blame for
some of them. Go to California in the spring
and it is green, but go in July and the vegeta-
tion has already turned light brown It hap-
pens the same every year, nothing new
about it.
If global warming and pollution in the
Keys is such a grave concern, one thing Mr.
Welber could have recommended is that all
tourists be required to arrive to the Keys by
airplane and not autos. That will really clean
up our air and reduce those harmful emis-
sions that we have.

Roth roast a
complete success
EDITOR:
On behalf of the United Way of Monroe
County, I would like to express my gratitude
and sincere appreciation to the mefnbers of '
the community who helped make the Sheriff
Rick Roth roast a successful event.
With the United Way funding decreasing,
the board of directors decided to move for-
ward with fundraising events to help the
agencies that benefit our community. In the
last three years, the United Way has honored
Capt. Skip Bradeen in the Upper Keys, Mike
Puto in the Middle Keys, Robert Padron in
Key West and most recently Sheriff Rick
Roth in Marathon.
Thank you to everyone for their contribu-
tions of time, goods and services to help
make the Rick Roth roast a successful
fundraiser.
Through the generous donations of the
community, the Roth roast raised more than
$33,000.

249


illegal


lobster


seized
By KEVIN WADLOW
Senior Staff Writer
kwadlow@keynoter.com

State marine officers seized
249 undersized lobster Sunday
after searching a commercial
fishing boat near the Coco
Plum area .of Marathon.
Five men were charged,
including three who listed
Upper Keys addresses and one
man from Homestead. No
address was available for the
fifth suspect.
' The damage caused to the
lobster fishery by taking this
many juvenile lobster is
immeasurable," said Gabriella
Ferraro, a spokeswoman for
the Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission.
"These are lobster that will
never have the chance to
reproduce."
FWC officers made the
arrests around 5:30 p.m.
Sunday near Avenue A on
Coco Plum. The lobster tails
reportedly had been illegally
separated from the crawfish
while on the water.
All the conservation
charges - primarily posses-
sion of undersized lobster and
possession of wrung tails on
the water - are misde-
meanors. But because more
than 100 crawfish are
involved, additional fines
could be imposed if the men
are convicted.
Maximum fines could
exceed $6,000 per suspect if
convicted, Ferraro said.
An FWC investigator made
the arrests following a catch
inspection as part of his rou-
tine patrol, Ferraro said..
Facing charges in the case
are . Geovani Valladares-
Ramirez, 40, of Plantation
Key; Douglass Valladares, 33,
of Tavernier; Luis Valaquez
Valladares,'19, of Key Largo;
Alexey Lopez, 31, of
Homestead; and Yuniel
Gonzalez-Moreno, 23,. no
address listed.

Fire damage extensive

State fire investigators
haven't pinpointed the cause of
a fire that destroyed a luxury
Key Largo home early
Saturday, but neighbor Susan
Gordon says she knows where
it started.
"I saw the fire burning in
their [Ford] Expedition," said
Gordon, who lives next door to
the burned house owned by
SRoy and Beverly O'Bryan at
221 Harbor Drive. -
"I heard the tires pop,"
Gordon said Monday. "I was
about to call [the O'Bryans]
when the propane tank explod-
ed. That was a terrible sound."
She immediately called 911
about 6:10 a.m.
The O'Bryans escaped the
$1 million house they finished
building in 1990, but flames
completely consumed the two-
story wooden structure.
Roy O'Bryan, a retired gov-
ernment worker, was treated
for smoke inhalation.
Beverly O'Bryan is a staff
nurse at Mariners Hospital.
The couple could not be
reached for comment.
The house was completely
ablaze by the time Key Largo
Volunteer Fire Department
units arrived, said Capt. Steve
Zavalney from the Monroe
County Fire Marshal's Office.
Key Largo firefighters
reported the fire was knocked

down by 7:15 a.m.
Only the cement pilings for
the second story and portions
of a tin roof were left. The rest
was reduced to charred wood
and metal.
The O'Bryans managed to
take one of their three dogs
with them as they fled the
burning home but two other
dogs perished. The dogs'
remains were found Monday.
The family'stwo cats remain
missing and are presumed to
have died.
Gordon said when she saw
the fire, it apparently was con-
fined to the sport utility vehicle
parked under the four-bedroom
home.
At least four vehicles,


the blaze and at least four

including a Corvette, and three
motorcycles also were
destroyed in the fire at the
waterfront home off mile
marker 99.
The fire apparently started
somewhere beneath the stilt
home but the source has not
been positively identified,
Zavalney said.
The Harbor Drive home is
the third destroyed by fire in
the Keys in recent days. After
midnight Friday, two villas
burned and were destroyed at
Hawks Cay Resort on Duck
Key.
On Dec. 2, two people were
arrested in separate auto and
building arson fires in Key
West.

Lobster rules tightening


Minimum size
to be required
for imports.
By KEVIN WADLOW
Senior Staff Writer
kwadlow@keynoter:com


A pending change in federal
rules aims to close a loophole that'
allows importation of undersized
lobster.
"This is a great rule for every-
body, from the Florida Keys to
Central America," said Tom,
Matthews, a state lobster biolo-
gist based in Marathon.
The pending rule, already
passed by the federal fishery
management councils for the
.South Atlantic, Gulf of Mexico
and Caribbean regions, requires
all imported spiny lobster to meet
U.S. minimum-size standards.
"We want to ensure that any
lobstser coming into our country
meet our minimum-size limits,"
said Gregg Waugh, deputy execu-
tive director of the South Atlantic
Council. "This ensures some base
level of reproductive success
throughout the Caribbean."
Said Matthews, "For decades,
the U.S. has allowed illegal lobster
to imported from countries that are
incapable of enforcing 'their own
rules, or don't have any rules."
U.S. law previously required
lobster to meet standards of the
exporting .country. However,
exporters from Central America
often shipped undersized lobster
across borders to countries with.
no fishery regulations or lax
enforcement, Matthews said.
"Lobster clearly were not
caught in a country that had no
lobster fishery," he said.
To bypass Florida's more


strict size regulations on all lob-
ster many imports went to states
including Alabama.
In a 2006 case, a Miami-area
seafood house was charged with
importing more than 16,500
pounds of undersized lobster
from Jamaica.
The National Marine Fisheries
Service will close the comment

period on, the pending final rule
on Monday.
It requires that any lobster tail
imported into the United States
weigh 5 ounces "tail weight" or
measure more than 5.5 inches.
Whole lobster must have a 3-inch
carapace.
"We're seeing a decline in the
lobster population Caribbean-
wide," said Waugh. "There is
increasing concern that too many
shorts [undersized lobster] are
being harvested."
Florida's lobster population of
legal-sized adults almost certainly
is a mix of locally born crawfish


and juveniles carried north by the
Gulf Stream current, he said.
While the Keys lobster fishery
produces an average of 4 million
to 6 million pounds annually, the
country imported nearly 87 mil-
lion pounds of spiny lobster in
2006, according to federal figures.
"This is a very simple rule that
- if we were not in the middle of
a total market collapse - almost
certainly would have a positive
effect on the prices paid for Keys
lobster," Matthews said.

Injured manatee rehabbing in Miami


Blitzen swam
nearly 50 miles

An injured manatee known as
Blitzen was rehabilitating at the
Miami Seaquarium on Tuesday

after rescuers finally tracked it
down nearly 50 miles from where
it was originally spotted.
The manatee, an adult male
about 8 feet long, was first spot-
ted Thursday afternoon in a canal
near the Sunshine Key
-ampground on Ohio Key. It had
deep gashes on its head and
smaller ones down its body,
apparently from a boat propeller.
The Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission was
called in and it, in turn, called in
the Dolphin Research Center's
Manatee Rescue Team. Attempts
to catch it weren't successful as
night fell, so the search was
called off.
Then on Monday, rescuers
received a call from a woman at
the Futura Yacht Club at mile
marker 88.2 after she saw a pic-
ture of the manatee in Saturday's


Keynoter.
"She said, I have your mana-
tee," said Mary Stella, spokes-
woman for the Dolphin Research
Center.
The rescuers raced up U.S. 1
and found the manatee. They got
more detail on the wound - the
gash on his head went from his
eye to the middle of his'forehead.
Dolphin Research Center Medical
Director Pat Clough "could feel
an air leak through the wound so
the sinus/breathing cavity is com-
promised," Stella said.
The manatee apparently has
been treated before because the
rescuers know it by the name it
was previously given, Blitzen.
Manatees can be identified by
prop scars on their backs.
In addition to Dolphin Research
Center staff, those helping in the
rescue included FWC manatee
experts, the U.S. Coast Guard
Futura Yacht Club residents.

2 charged with


taking jewfish


Two Key West men have been
cited for possessing Goliath
grouper, a fish long protected
against harvest.
Eric Blatch, 40,and Brian
Knowles, 48, are charged with
the- misdemeanor. They were
jailed Nov. 26.
According to the state Fish
and Wildlife Conservation
Commission, FWC investigators
were conducting surveillance of
the dock area behind 1 Arbutus
St. in Key West. The surveillance
was in response to reports of men
.spearfishing and returning with
Goliath grouper, or jewfish.
The FWC says the investiga-
tors saw Blatch and Knowles
returning to the dock with spear-
guns and coolers. After question-

Keys briefs


ing the men, investigators
checked their coolers and found
five juvenile Goliath grouper,
each measuring 20 to 30 inches
long. Investigators revived .the
fish and released them to the
water. The fish survived because
their vital organs were not dam-
aged, the FWC says.
Blatch has a Monroe County
rap sheet going back to 2006 that
includes charges of possession of
cocaine, resisting arrest, fleeing a
law enforcement officer and
destroying evidence.
Knowles' rap sheet goes back
to 2003 and includes charges of
felony battery, possession and
larceny.

Council codifies sewer rule


All required
to hook up to
central system
By DAVID BALL
dball@keysreporter.com


Islamorada is requiring homes
and businesses to connect to a.
central wastewater system once
it's built.
That's the effect of a 3-2 vote
by the Village Council Thursday.
It makes official a policy the vil-
lage has had since construction of
the north Plantation Key sewage
system several years ago.
Councilmen Dave Boerner
and Michael Reckwerdt dissent-
ed, saying the requirement could
take options away for property
owners and tie them to a system
that has no firm designs,
timetable or costs.
"We haven't proven ourselves,
and, yet we're going to require
[property owners] pay our
prices," Boerner said. "I still sup-
port the idea that if a community
gets together and puts together its
own system, they should be
allowed to do so."
He said the state's requirement
for advanced wastewater treat-
ment in the Keys by July 2010 is
placed on homeowners and busi-


nesses, not local governments.
Local governments, he said,
normally alleviate that burden by
providing central sewage systems
that cost less and work better than
individual treatment systems.
However, Boerner cited the
Plantation Key project, which
was fraught with failures when it
first began operating several
years ago and caused sewage
backups in homes.
A lawsuit with the project con-
tractor also stalled the connection
of hundreds of homes until
recently.
"So a mandatory connection
to a system that is a lot more
expensive than doing it yourself
is our failure," he said.
Village Utilities Director Myles
Milander said he disagrees that a
village system would cost more for
the average homeowner. He said
progress made on the Plantation
Key system shows the village is
capable of moving forward.
"We've had two minor back-
ups in the last 11 months," he
said. "That's a pretty good track
record, especially for a system
that had so many problems."
Reckwerdt said he was con-
cerned the ordinance removed the
option of having existing treat-
ment plants at resorts treat efflu-


ent from surrounding properties.
The issue of existing treatment
plants surfaced in a recent lawsuit
filed against the village on behalf
of dozens of owners at Cheeca
Lodge Resort and Spa.
The suit contends the village's
$631 assessment on every parcel
that will eventually connect to
central sewers is unwarranted,
because Cheeca owners will uti-
lize an on-site wastewater treat-
ment plant.
Cheeca's cost to upgrade the
plant to meet state standards will
be less than $500,000, while it
could cost up to $4 million to
connect all 150 condo-hotel units
to a village sewage system, the
suit claims.
Councilwoman Jill Zima
Borski voted with Mayor Cathi
Hill and Vice Mayor Don
Achenberg to approve the
hookup ordinance. They said the
time for residents, businesses or
neighborhoods to implement
wastewater treatment themselves
is long past.
Village Manager Ken Fields
said property owners will have 30
days to hook up to the central sys-
tem once it is built in their area.
After 30 days, they will receive
monthly sewage bills. Property
owners must pay private
plumbers to connect their homes
or businesses to the system.

Crack dealer gets 10 years


Flenor skipped
bail the day
trial occurred
A Florida City man who
skipped his September trial for
drug dealing -- and was con-
victed in absentia - was sen-
tenced Tuesday morning to 10
years in state prison.
SLeefloyd Flenor, 27, was a
no-show for his Sept. 17 trial
for selling cocaine within 1,000
feet of a Key West church. No
one knew where Flenor was so
the trial went on without him. A
Key West jury took 15 minutes
to convict him of the first-
degree felony.
Flenor was back in Monroe
County law enforcement cus-
tody on Npv. 14 and appeared
in front of Circuit Court Judge
Wayne Miller Tuesday.
Before sentencing, Flenor
told the.court he was innocent
and that he had missed his trial
because his son had run away
that morning. Not persuaded,
Miller handed down the
decade-long punishment.

undercover detective occurred
within 1,000 feet of St. Mary
Immaculate Star of the Sea
Church on Truman Avenue.
Flenor was out of jail on
$30,000 bond when he failed to
appear in court for his Sept. 17
trial.
"This is a long sentence but a
fair one," said Val Winter, who
prosecuted the case for State
Attorney Mark Kohl. "Flenor's
blatant disregard for the law and
for the justice system made him
a real danger to our community."
Flenor has an extensive
criminal history.
In Miami-Dade County, he's
been convicted of battery on a
law enforcement officer, resist-
ing arrest with violence and
possession of cocaine stem-
ming from a May 23, 2003,
incident; and sale of marijuana
and obstruction a criminal
investigation in October the"
same year.
He served state prison time
from Dec. 29, 2003, through
Oct, 5, 2004, followed. by a
year of supervised released.
In Monroe County, he's been
arrested for, besides the cocaine
charge, a felony charge of driv-
ing with a suspended license as
a habitual offender, failure to
appear in court to answer a
felony arrest, failure to appear
for a misdemeanor offense and
violation of probation.

Bailout money to flow


But some local
bankers may
opt to decline
By MARGARET MENGE
mmenge@keynoter.com


Key West Bank has just one
branch, on the corner of
Whitehead and Angela streets. If
tellers don't address you by name,
they have to take a 50-cent piece
out of a jar and pay it to the bank.
It's the smallest bank in the
Keys, with just $70 million in
deposits and 42 shareholders.
And the bank's finances are in
good shape, according to Phil
Hogue, the bank's president and
one of its founders.
"Our lending habits, haven't
changed at.all," he says.
So why did this healthy little
bank apply for funds from the fed-
eral government under the bailout
program known as the Troubled
Asset Relief Program (TARP)?
"It's kind of like, to get in the
game, you had to put your name
in the hat," says Hogue.
The deadline for banks to
apply for money under the TARP
program was Nov. 18.
Key West Bank applied for
$1.5 million - even though the
bank-has no "troubled assets" to
,speak of, and is not under duress.
Key West Bank is not alone.
In a survey of local banks, and
banks with branches in the Keys,
the Keynoter did not find one that
had not applied for federal
money, though Community Bank
of Florida declined comment and
executives at Orion Bank could
not be reached by press time.
BB&T, a large regional bank
based in Winston-Salem, N.C.,
with branches in Key West,
Marathon and Tavernier, was
approved for and received $3.1
billion under the program. The
holding company of what is now
Centennial Bank (previously
Marine Bank) has been approved
for $50 million. TIB Bank has
gotten preliminary approval for
$37 million. And First State Bank
of the Florida Keys applied for an
Undisclosed amount. Of the
largest banks with a presence
here, Bank of America was one of
the first institutions approved for
federal help, and Wells Fargo,
soon-to-be parent of Wachovia, is
also getting a large cash infusion.


TIB Financial Corp., the par-
ent of TIB Bank (now based in
Naples) sent out a release to the
media last week, celebrating the
bank's approval for TARP funds.
"We are pleased to have been
selected to participate in this vol-
untary program designed to stabi-
lize our economy and financial
markets by providing additional
resources to banks to expand
their lending .activities," said
Thomas Longe, chairman and
chief executive officer at TIB.
But not all banks are so
pleased to be participating..
A spokesman for BB&T says
the bank was pressured to apply
for and accept the $3.1 billion
that was used by the U.S.
Treasury to purchase preferred
stock in the bank."We were very
strongly encouraged by the U.S.
Treasury to participate," says
spokesman Bob Denham. He
says BB&T opposed the TARP
program, because it involves the
government too heavily in the
banking industry.
Under the TARP program,
banks like BB&T have to agree to
a number of terms and conditions,
including allowing federal moni-
toring of executive compensation.
Hunter Padgett, president of
what is now Centennial Bank,
declined to comment on the $50
million approved for the bank's
holding company, Home
Bancshares, but to say that the
company has not yet agreed to
take the federal money.


Phil Hog~e,
president of
Key West
Bank, helped
found the
bank 10
years ago.
The bank has
applied for
$1.5 million
S in federal
funding under
S the TARP
program, but
may not take
it because of
the recent.
stipulations..
For small banks like Key West
Bank and First State Bank of the
Florida Keys, both of which are
Subchapter S corporations, the
terms and conditions of the pro-
gram have not yet been finalized.
But given the latest stipulations to
be passed down from the Federal
Reserve - that the banks will
have to allow two federal appoint-
ments to serve on their boards and
relinquish control of all dividend
payments to the federal govern-
ment - Key West Bank may
decline the money, says Hogue,
S"Without telling the public
they're doing it, they're taking
over the banking system," he told
the Keynoter this week.
Hogue said the only reason the
bank might need the $1.5 million
from the federal government is in
the event that a rush of potential
borrowers come in looking for
mortgage loans when the economy
improves. He says if the bank
doesn't take the federal money, he
may go back to the bank's initial
investors in the spring and do a
small stock offering.
Karen Sharp, president and
CEO of First State Bank,
declined to say how much the
bank applied for under the bailout
program; but said that based on
current restrictions, the bank
would accept the money in order
to make sure that some of the
TARP funds "are allocated to a
bank that's going to invest them
just in Monroe County."

Coral Shores
stage to fill
for pageant
Angels will fly in the latest
staging of the Key Largo
Christmas Pageant, running
Friday through Sunday at the
Coral. Shores High School
Performing Arts Center and
staged .by the Key Largo
Baptist Church.
"It's like our Christmas gift
to the community," cast mem-
ber Gary Mace said. "It's a
remarkable production,."
Last year's pageant set the,
attendance record at the arts
center, with more than 2,000
people seeing the show over
its run.
"Christmas Around 'the
World" is the 2008 theme.
"We've got a full profes-
sional sound and light rig with
every kind of special effect
you can think of," said Bryan
Lykins, one of the production
coordinators. "We have flying
angels and everything else."
The cast includes the
cliurch's 43-member adult
choir and the 16 children in
the youth choir.
Considering all backstage
aspects, nearly 98 percent of


the congregation from the
church is involved, Mace said.
"It started out as our
church's .own little singing
event for Christmas," Lykins
said. "Then we took the leap
to the performing arts center
and it's grown every year
since."
"After last year's show, two
people who were 30-year
Broadway professionals told
me they'd never seen anything
like it," Lykins said.
"Christmas Around the
World'" takes the stage at 7
p.m. Friday and Saturday, and
1.0 a.m. and 6 p.m. Sunday. The
shows are free. Coral Shores is

Naples takes
overall title
in Key West
By DICK WAGNER
Keynoter Contributor

It was 5:15 Saturday after-
noon, more than five grueling
hours after the Key West High
School wrestling tournament's
first matches, and energy shot
through the Coral Shores team
as if the day had just begun.
"If we beat Key West, we can
finish, second," said Timothy
Sabalka, a rawboned and
demonstrative junior, who had
won four of his five matches.
Screaming from the edge of


the mat, one of three that cov-
ered the Bobby Menendez
Gym's floor, the Hurricanes
watched teammate Will
Mulkeen pin Key West's Sanon
Fyrland.
Coral Shores went on to
defeat the hobbled Conchs by
three points and, with a 4-1
record, overtake 3-2 Key West
for second place in the six-team
event behind undefeated
Naples.
Three members of the Mark
Terrell-coached Hurricanes won
medals - Mulkeen (160-pound
class), Joshua Ritz (140) and
Luke Terrell (145). Max Llama

Conch scores
42 in rout
of Bay Point
By DICK WAGNER
Keynoter Contributor

In the giddy aftermath of
Friday's 42-point performance
by Key West High School's
Vladimyr Sibera, teammate
Jeff Sullivan sard to him, "You
beat Bay Point by six."
"Seven," the smiling Sibera
said without hesitation, looking
up at the Bobby Menendez
Gym's red-bulbed scoreboard
that showed the Conchs had
defeated the visitors, 81-35.
Sibera had come within
seven points of tying the


school-record 49 set 20 years
ago by Leron Graves.
"It just happened,"
explained Sibera, a senior for-
ward who scored on layups,
jumpers, a running one-hander
- and seven 3-point shots.
One of the few shots he missed,
was a dunk attempt tha'
clanged off the rim. And so
Robert Spottswood is still the
last Conch to dunk in a game
- he did it (barely) as a senior
three years ago.
Key West broke the game
open early, racing from a 10-10
tie to a 32-10 lead, a run that
featured a flurry of fast-break
layups.

Up and down day for Conchs


,WRESTLING / From 21

(112), Greg Garcia (119), Oscar
Fernandez (125) and Ben Covan
(135) took first-place honors for
John Moeller's Conchs.
For the Conchs - with cries
of "circle," "hip over," "up, up,
'�p," "keep fighting" and "shoot
for his legs" from bear-like
assistant coach Chaz Jimenez
and assorted wrestling aficiona-
dos ringing in their ears - it
was a day of ecstasy and agony.
When Shane Chavez pinned


his Doral Academy opponent,
his elated camera-wielding step-
father, Ray Rojas, leaped to his
feet, causing the picture he took
of the precious moment-to blur.
After heavyweight Kevin
Pribramsky, the junior class
president, won by a pin, his
smile lit up the gym. But an
injury prevented him from fin-
ishing his last match, and he had
to sit grimacing in the rubbing-
alcohol-scented training area
with an ice bag on his bare foot.
Lou Wada, a 140-pounder,
collapsed with a sore back after


winning a match; 215-pound
Paul Leatherwood, after pinning
a Flanagan wrestler 50 pounds
heavier, limped away and had to
have an ice bag affixed to his
ankle; and 189-pound Michael
Sohi could barely limp across
the mat to shake hands with the
Coral Shores coaches after win-
ning his last match.
Conch sophomore Clayton
Parker, wrestling in the 103-
pound class, was having a good
day until he came up against
Sergey Rush, Naples' crewcut-
ted, muscular dwarf. The slen-
der Parker, a foot taller than the
4-foot-6 Rush, got pinned and
said afterward, "Definitely bet-
ter to be lower."
Rush adjourned to the first
row of the bleachers, where he
eagerly offered, "I can bench-
press 245 pounds and squat 315.
I believe in myself and have to
look past my disability."
Bound for the University of
Florida and courses in computer
graphics, Rush went on to
proudly accept a medal. As the
exhaustive day came to an end,
there wasn't anyone on the other
five teams who wasn't happy to
bend down and shake his hand.


Conch Ben Covan took first in the 135-pound weight class at
the weekend tournament.

half shot from the right side
but the strong kick tore
through the netminder's hands
and kept going for the score.
Forward Cailin Reckwerdt
scored two goals, and notched
three assists.
Diana DuPre scored a solo
goal as the Eagles took 15
shots on the Princeton net.
ICS goalie Kaylin Wyatt
had seven saves. "Our defense


continued to play well," Yost
said. "Jenn Subic had a great
game at sweeper but we've
come to expect that from her."
Melanie Meroni showed
veteran poise at midfield, turn-
ing back several Princeton
attacks.
"It's been a fun season so
far," Yost said.

Canes close late but fall to Conchs


Sibera scores
29, Sikora

By KEVIN WADLOW
Senior Staff Writer
kwadlow@keynoter.com

-Speed mattered more -than
size Monday when Key West
High School held off Coral
Shores, 65-55, in boys basket-
ball.
"We were able to beat them
up and down the court;" said
SConch coach Paul Davis.
"We were undersized under-
neath the net," Davis said, "but
our guys outhustled them and
played strong defense."
The Hurricanes (0-4) went
into Tuesday's home game
against Barrington Christian still
looking for their first win, but
Coral Shores coach Patrick
Meyers liked what we saw
against Key West.
"We were within three points
with two minutes to go. We had
to start fouling and Key West
made the shots," the first-year


CONCHS / From 21

The Conchs, who improved
to 1-1, led 39- 19 at the half and
outscored Bay Point, 28-4, in the
fourth quarter. Sibera scored 15
of those points.
Arthur Adams had nine
points for the Conchs, Josh
Berkenmeyer eight, Peralt
Annulysse six, Nick Scammacca
five and Christian Rodriguez-
Sanchez four. Keith Valdez,
Sullivan and Christian Stewart
had two each and Justin Reyes
added one.

Girls win
The Key West High girls
team remained undefeated,
downing St. Brendan, 59-45, in
a District 16-4A game Saturday
afternoon in Miami.
The Conchs (4-0 overall, 3-0
in district) were led by Shanyia
Watson and Chelsea Storr, who
each scored 16 points. Daphne
Barnett added 10 points and had
several steals for KCey West,
which led by as many as 25
points.


head coach said. "But we're
making adjustments and improv-
ing every night."
Vladimyr Sibera, the Conchs'.
versatile wingman, scored a
game-high 29 points. "He's basi-
cally a small forward but we can
play him at shooting guard or
anywhere else on the court,"
Davis said.
Kyle Sikora, the Canes' 6-
foot-10 junior center, scored 25
points in the first test of a new
half-court offense designed to
work the ball to the front-court
trio of Sikora and seniors
Norman Dixon and Ray Zijac.
Dixon had 10 points .and nine
rebounds, and the 6-8 Zijac
scored nine points.
"We were able to beat the
press and handle the ball without
turning it over," Meyers said,
spotlighting the difference from
last week's lopsided loss to
Ransom Everglades.
Davis credited 6-6 Conch
center Jeff Sullivan and forward
Arthur Adams for holding their
own against their taller counter-
parts from Coral Shores.

Key West's Vladimyr Sibera
shoots a foul shot for one of his
42 points against Bay Point
Friday.
Two more district road games
loom for the Conchs - today at
5:30 p.m. at Reagan, and at 5:30
Saturday against Monsignor
Pace in Opa-locka.


"Sullivan's a tall guy but
[Sikora] made him look about 5-
6," said the coach.
Keith Valdez had 14 points,
including several key free
throws in the closing minutes.
"We lost the last two years up
at Coral Shores so it's good to
get this one," Davis said. "We've
still got plenty to work on but
this should let us keep the
momentum as we go forward."
Meyers voiced similar
thoughts about the Canes.
"The guys are studying the
game films and learning what
they need to do," he said.
"Making a run at Key West
should give us confidence as we
head into our district games."
Coral Shores plays a 6:30

Keys Fishing


Offshore
The Islamorada Hump is
the destination of an. captain
running well beyond the reef
these days.
The blackfin are biting
\\ell during times of strong
Current, as it is the upwelling
of water that brings the bait
fish close to the surface.
Look for small black birds
down on the water feeding
as well as the big frigate
birds soaring.

Reef
The current rage on the
reef is sailfish - catches are
nothing less than great.
There may be the occasional
off day now and then when
Sthe water is greenish with lit-
tie current, but for the most
part this is the tume to hire a
charter and let the crew do
its magic.
The li e bait necessary to
do the deed is readily avail-
able. Ballyhoo and cigar
minnows and pilchards are
aljin good supply. Some
captains may fly a kite and
suspend a small blue runner
a\ ay from the main spread
of baits. This method will
yield sailfish as well as king
mackerel, dolphin, bonito.
tuna and dar near anything
that sw uns by.

Capt. Lou Brubaker and
Capt. Mark Richardson took
a busman's holiday and did
some exploring in the gulf

\weight flt rods. The t\\o tus-
sled with cobia and tripletail
and on the w ay home
stopped and dnfted a gras:.
spot and had sea trout gob-
bling chartreuse Clousers

Flats, backcountry
When we talk backcoun-
try these days, we are refer-
ring mostly to the Flarungo
area. Any given da\ the
snook and redfish w ill be
t"eeding in the channels usu-
ally adjacent to a runoff or
drain bringing tide and bait
into the main channel.

Mackerel fill the bay


It's hard to tell which is com-
ing in faster, our winter guests or
our winter species.
If you've looked around on
the highway, you may have
noticed all of the different col-
ored license plates or, at the very
least, all of the traffic that wasn't
here only a few weeks ago. There
are now times when getting to the
grocery store can take almost as
much time as getting through it.
The same kind of congestion is
happening in area waters, not
only on them but in them.
Starting off in Florida Bay and
near-gulf waters, the sheer num-
ber of mackerel that's arrived
with the cooler water of late is
impressive. Basically north of a
line from Sprigger Bank to the
east westward to well past
Bullfrog Bank, you can count on
finding all you want to deal with.
There has been a mix of Cero
and Spanish throughout this area,
along with quite a few other
species traveling along. The cool
waters and a big influx of bait has
drawn them in here. You can
catch some of them inside of, say,
six miles from shore but for the
good numbers, go the distance of
at least nine.
For those from the northeast
that may be feeling a little home-
sick, the same area holding the
mackerel has its share of bluefish.
Also in the mix have been red-
fish, trout, lane and mangrove
snapper, gag and red grouper, and
an increasing number of cobia.
Some of these waters have
been quite stirred up but don't let
that scare you. If it looks lighter
than a thick glass of milk, you
should be OK.
A trick that many commercial
fishermen use to find schools of
mackerel is to troll a spoon or two
around the bay. Going around 6
to 8 knots, trolling within 100
feet of the transom as to avoid the
numerous buoys and using a 3- to
5-inch diamond jig or a Clark or
Drone spoon, action will find you-
when you run across a school.
What's commonly done is
when fish strike, turn in a wide
circle to see if it was a stray or if
there are many more strikes in the
area. If so, anchor up, start the
chum line and have your way.
The fish may not stay there for
extended periods, as they were
moving when you found them.
When activity dies off, pull the
hook and reheat the operation


Ron and Nancy Johnson from Robbinsville, N.C., caught and
released six sailfish while fishing with Capt. Bobby Manske and
mate Mike Rathbun (left) aboard 'Pip's 36' out of Captain Pip's
. Marina and Hideaway in Marathon. Three more sailfish were
hooked. The sail action is pretty good in a few areas of the Keys.

again. This
is a very
effective
way to find
fish and not
just hope
they are
going to be
at one of
y our
favorite
spots in the
bay.
Here's
one of my
tricks -that


you can add to theirs. When
trolling slowly with spoons that
are in the mid-to upper part of the
water column, drop back a heavy
feather (yellow is best) with or
without a strip bait on it that will
run short of the spoons and near
the bottom. Use a full wire leader
or at least 6 inches to a swivel,
and then a mono leader from the
head of the jig to prevent cut-offs
from mackerel.
What you'll catch with this
most likely are some nice grouper
and snapper while you're looking
for the mackerel. There are quite
a few fish that are scattered in the
tall grass beds of the bay and not
all hunkered down on wrecks or
white spots. The reason few
know this is that they just don't
try to fish the open grass often.
To the northwest, kingfish
have been moving in from the
gulf. Some of the commercial
trappers have reported that-areas
of water have turned almost black
with the huge schools under
them. Distances from shore have
varied, with some of the big
schools sighted only about 16
miles north of Bin Pine Kev.


Several anglers that have ven-
tured out to find some of these
schools have also run into some
large cobia in such tight balls near
the surface at slack tide that they
reportedly resembled big brown
logs. It gets you excited when the
debris on the surface you're
attempting to avoid swims away.
Kingfish, mackerel, cobia and
more will be the topic of this
week's free fishing seminar at our
Marine Educational Center at
3740 Overseas Highway in
Marathon at 6 p.m. Sunday.
On the Oceanside of the
islands, kingfish have not moved
in that well as of yet. Mackerel
are in the vicinity in good num-
bers but still not in major concen-
trations like they will be in a few
more weeks. This is not to say
that you won't catch any; just that
they are not thick yet.
What has been good just off the
reef has been sailfish action. From
Tennessee Light westward to near
Marker 20 has been the most
active for sails. West of Sombrero
has had a few, as well, but has been
more prevalent with nice tunas in
the 180- to 220-foot depths.
Also lately, a surprising num-
ber of nice dolphin have been
within these same depths. The
deep drops of the reef line along
here have also been good with
big mutton snapper for several
weeks now. Big Pine Shoal and
west have been awesome with
these mutton, along with some
very nice black grouper.
