A U.S. Coast Guard search
for a boat possibly sinking off-
shore of Marathon Sunday night
came up empty and was official-
ly cancelled Monday afternoon.
Coast Guard spokesman
Matthew Meinhold said that
around 7:45 p.m. Sunday, the
Guard officers received a may-
day call from a boater claiming
to be taking on water off the gulf
side of Faro Blanco Marine
Resort near mile marker 48.


"They said they were taking
on water and sinking," Meinhold
said. The boater didn't offer
specifics on the size or the boat
or amount of people on board.
"After the first call for help
they put out, we didn't hear any-
thing else," Meinhold said.
Officers used a "line of bear-
ing," which shows the direction
a call originates from but not
how far-out.
"We searched that direction
that evening with a rescue heli-


copter from Miami and a small
boat from station Marathon,"
Meinhold said. "They didn't find
anything that night, so we set up
for a first-light search."
That search lasted from 6
a.m. Monday until sunset, when
it was finally called off.
"We saturated the area and
we didn't have anything else to
go off of, so we suspended the
search," he said.
No missing boater reports or
missing person reports have-
been filed to correspond with the
incident, he said.


Finance investigation expands

with a district credit card or
through paying out of their own
pockets and later getting reim-
bursed by the School District.
Investigators want to know if
these employees, who bought the
tickets for official travel, instead
drove to their destinations, and
later had the destinations on the
tickets changed, or turned the
tickets in for cash.
Golan could not be reached
for comment. A voice-mail mes-
sage on her phone says they were
out of town until the beginning of
April.
State Attorney Dennis Ward
said his office is looking into the
business relationship Golan had
with several schools employees.
"I just heard about it. We will
be looking into that," Ward said.
Collins said he hasn't heard
from Golan in about two weeks.
After their initial conversations,
Collins said Golan called him
and told him she had an accident
and broke her kneecap.
He said he does expect to get
in contact with Golan soon -to
find out about any records she
has. regarding School District
employees' air travel, or to find
out if those records were since
destroyed.
Investigators with the state's
Auditor General have been in the
county since February and are
now planning on spending anoth-
er two weeks, leading several

gation to believe investigators

Guides slam possible marker plan


MARKERS / From 1

Hank Brown, a dean of the
Keys backcountry guides, said he
has sympathy for the park man-
agers.
"I think they got an idea what
people are worried about,"
'Brown said after the meeting.
"The superintendent is a good
guy; trying to do the right thing,
but it's an impossible job."
The park's Alternative 1 pro-
posal essentially leaves the bay as
it is with no additional regulations.
Alternatives 2 and 3 would
target specific areas as no-motor
zones.
Alternative 4, the most
aggressively protective, would
declare most areas of less than 2
feet depth at mean low water as
no-motor zones, open only to
boats with push poles, electric
trolling motors or paddles.
"We all understand some-
thing's got to be done," said Key
Largo guide Kerry Wingo. "We
know we're not staying with
Alternative 1 but we sure don't
want to see Alternative 4,"
Park staff said the U.S. Coast

Park Service that any channel

TRAUMA / From 1

Forfeiture Fund came because a
six-month budget appropriation
for TraumaStar approved last fall
was running out, and the County
Commission has yet to decide
whether to impose a tax to fund
the air ambulance.
In December, the commission
voted to create two taxing dis-
tricts to fund the operation, but
they haven't been activated.
In November, Keys voters
approved a nonbinding referen-
dum supporting a tax to fund the
service, which costs upward of.
$2 million per year to operate..
The referendum passed easily
Nov. 4 with 55 percent of the
vote. However, it failed to gain
support in any of the Upper
La.., anrn Ch he ar M1 CoTr -z4v P.S-.

Keys' 10 voting precincts (the
county has 33 voting precincts).
Critics of TraumaStar note
that the Key Largo area is includ-
ed in the Upper..Keys Health
Care Taxing District, which has
had outside air ambulance agree-
ments with Miami-Dade County
providers since the 1990s.
The Marathon City Council
and Islamorada Village Council
have yet to decide whether to
adopt special tax districts to help
fund TraumaStar, while the Key
Largo Fire Rescue and
Emergency Medical Services
District has already opted out.
Meanwhile, a January internal
audit prepared by the office of
County Clerk Danny Kolhage
points out several shortcomings
with Advanced Data Processing
Inc., the company contracted by
the county to bill for emergency
medical transport.
Kolhage said the contract with
ADPI lacks clarification as 'to
some requirements, but that
"there is some specific language
in it that they didn't comply
with."
The audit is based on 25 sam-
ple transports 10 ground
ambulance and 15 air ambu-
lance.
Among the findings: The
average time for an initial billing
after service was 39 days, ADPI
is not meeting requirements for
the timing of invoices to self-pay
patients and is not sending' the
county a monthly report.
In a January letter to
Kolhage's audit director, Mark
Albury, County Administrator
Roman Gastesi said he was
working with staff on making
necessary changes to ADPI's
contract.
"The key is we can probably
do a better job of collectidonl"
Gastesi said.

EPA fugitive shot in Keys made early threats


Utah judge
was warned but
ignored advice
By RYAN McCARTHY
rmccarthy@keynoter.com

-Jt appears the March 10
shooting of fugitive Larkin
Baggett at a Marathon marina
c9iuld have been avoided had a
tqcderal judge heeded the warn-
jng of a. Utah assistant U.S.
Attorney at a Sept. 20, 2007,
raignment hearing.
i Baggett was shot twice, in*
the face and buttocks, as feder-
dl "Environmental Protection
Agency agents, aided by two
Monroe County Sheriff's
Office deputies, attempted to
serve an arrest warrant on him
around 9 a.m. at the old
Turnkey Marine on 11th Street
bayside,.
The Florida Department of
Law Enforcement investigates
"officer-involved shootings"
for the Sheriff's Office. Its
investigation is ongoing and no
information about the shooting
or 'additional charges Baggett
will face has been released.
Baggett, a Salt Lake City
native, was on the lam for near-
lyi a. year after skipping town
while awaiting trial on six fed-
eral charges of dumping haz-
ardous chemicals into that
city's sewer system. Baggett
owned a truck detergent com-
pany, Chemical Consultants,
and was accused of improperly
diposing of waste the compa-
ny produced.
At the time of his shooting
in Marathon, Baggett had eight
atqtmatic and semiautomatic
rifles and handguns, armor-
piercing :bullets, banana clips
and knives. Several of the guns
had camouflage material on
them and were equipped with


MIDL KY


sniper
and
p ow


barrels
high
ered


J1 scopes.
1 But that
wasn't the
first time
Ba g gett ,
S- known by
BAGGETT neighbors to
be anti-gov-
ernment and a recluse, was
found with numerous weapons.
The 53-year-old had a sizable
weapons cache when arrested
on the pollution counts in
2007.
According to a Saturday
Salt Lake Tribune report, it was
enough to cause Assistant U.S.
Attorney Jared C. Bennett to
warn Magistrate Paul M.
Warner about Baggett's
weapons and that he "talked
about wanting to 'go down in a
blaze of glory."'"
The problem, Warder told
Bennett, was the hearing was-
n't related to the weapons and
that the charges Baggett faced
were unrelated.
"If you're saying he's mak-
ing threats, charge him and
bring him in here," Warner said
to ,Bennett, according to an
official transcript of the pro-
ceedings. ."But don't tell me
that he's charged with environ-

mental crimes and you want
him detained because he's
making threats but you are not
bringing any charge."
Bennett continued to plead
his case: "He would like to go
down in a blaze of glory. He
wants to take everyone out at
the EPA."
"We all want to go down in
a blaze of glory, Mr. Bennett,"
Warner replied.
Warner twice threatened


Bennett with disciplinary
action before finally releasing
Baggett with an order to give
up all his weapons.
But as a neighbor of
Baggett's told the Keynoter,
Baggett had no intention of
going back to jail and planned
to avoid trial by fleeing to the
Bahamas.
Baggett made it as far as the
Keys, when EPA agents appar-
ently received a tip he was


staying at the Marathon mari-
na. The environmental charges
he faces carry up to 26 years in
prison and hundreds of thou-

' Drought conditions create a moonscape where water used to
pond in Conservation Area 2 west of Coral Springs.

Conserving water now

a growing imperative

The parched, brown moonscape above is not an April Fool's
Day joke.
This is a water conservation area west of Coral Springs that
dramatically illustrates the drought conditions persisting in
South Florida.
Even though the Florida Keys have not fallen as far behind in
rainfall totals this year as our neighbors to the north, we get our
water from outside Monroe County.
So what's happening in the South Florida Water Management
District is critical to our water supply and the very real threat
of restrictions headed our way.
Earlier this month we published a news story that charted one
of the driest winters on record. That has triggered the threat of
wildfires.
Last year, in. fact, the grass fires were so intense that parts of
U.S. 1 and Card Sound Road were closed at the same time.
At the beginning of March, South Florida's dry season had been
among the most parched since record keeping began in 1932.
By the end of March, the deficit rainfall in our watershed
region hit 5.37 inches.
.To put that in perspective, from Jan. 2 to March 31 of this
year, the region has received 1.96 inches of rain total.
That's not enough to recharge the vast water conservation
areas that hold moisture for the dry season, which runs up until
our summer storm patterns re-emerge.
For those of you who didn't attend Saturday's Green Living
& Energy Education (GLEE) Expo, log on to their Web site at
www.keysglee.com.
You'll find plenty of information about water conservation,
rainwater harvesting and water smart irrigation.
Now, look again at that photo of Conservation Area 2 and
you'll see why conserving water .is so critical right now.

College board needs to listen to complaints


EDITOR:
I carefully read a recent article about Florida
Keys Community College. I was appalled by a
statement by college President Jill Landesberg-
Boyle: "And I am tired of Kim Bassett handing
out her card all the time, asking people, to talk
with her." This statement is insubordination. By
this statement, Dr. Boyle is also attempting to
interfere with the duties of a Board of Trustees
member.
Kim Bassett was appointed by the governor to
be responsible for governing Florida Keys
Community College. It is Kim Bassett's absolute
duty to make herself available to talk to anyone
who has any information that is relevant to the
governance of the college.
Dr. Boyle's attitude about one of her superiors
demonstrates her total disregard for administra-
tive structure and chain of command. Kim
Bassett is performing in a manner that the gover-
nor expects from an appointee who is responsible
for governing a subdivision of the state known as
a community college.
Some members of the Board of Trustees have
expressed that if a complaint is anonymous, it has
no merit and they can ignore it. I would like to
ask the Board of Trustees what part of their job
description says they can ignore anonymous


complaints? Do the police ignore anonymous
complaints? No, they do not.
In fact, they have set up a system to encourage
anonymous complaints in which a person can
even receive a reward and remain anonymous to
everyone, including the police. Why do they do .
this? The police do it to better accomplish their
jobs. They realize that people are reluctant to
report for fear of retaliation. Retaliation is alive
and well at Florida Keys Community College,
and the employees know it.
The employees not only fear retaliation at the
presidential level, they have no hope at the board
level after the chairman of the board, Ed Scales,
gave the employees his opinion of them with his
loyalty versus laziness speech. He stated they will
be terminated if not loyal.
Mr. Scales appears to have problems differen-
tiating personal loyalty to Dr. Boyle from loyalty*
to the institution. Personal loyalty is not a job
requirement in a democracy. No doubt, Dr. Boyle
demands total unquestioning personal loyalty, or
employees are fired. Ed Scales' unquestioning '
loyalty to Dr. Boyle needs to stop. He needs to
listen to employee complaints. It is part of his job
as chairman of the board.

More respect needed at community college


EDITOR:
I attended the Florida Keys Community
College Board of Trustees meeting on March 23.
During the meeting, the college's lawyer, Mr.
Buck Devane, informed the board that although
only into the second year of President Jill
Landesberg-Boyle's three-year contract, the hous-
ing stipend provided by a foundation (donated to
the president of the college) will end in May.
Both contracts for employment and the
stipend were negotiated at the same time and
Devane knew of the contents of the both, yet said
nothing to the board until now. Devane said if
the stipend is allowed to run out in May, we may
not have a president to run the college.
Not one board member sat up and reminded
the president that she signed a contract that was
still valid for well over a year, that she agreed to
this and, because a foundation decides for what-
,ever reason to stop giving her money for rent,
she still has an obligation to honor her contract.
Later, the Board of Trustees decided to amend
the contract when the foundation stops paying
the housing stipend in May, meaning the college
(using taxpayers' money) will give the president
$3,500 a month as a housing stipend in addition
to her six-figure salary as a community college
president.
I had filled out a card to speak during public
input. When it was time to speak, Devane held
my card up and announced that he would let the
board decide whether I got to speak, as the topic
was "cease and desist [expletive] request." I
spoke up to inform it actually read "cease and
desist harassment request." Mr. Devane contin-
ued to remark about my handwriting and what he
thought'it said, laughing about it and sharing it i c .
with nultiple'people in the room I I


I informed him of issues as a disabled veteran
that have, at times, affected my handwriting. He
continued to laugh and then loudly remarked that
he could give me spelling lessons.
This is the environment condoned by the
board and college president where the public is
invited to share, and it is perfectly clear to me
why college employees feel threatened and
intimidated. Mortgages, medical needs, provi-
sions such as food on the table and clothing, and
their children's futures lie in each employee's :
ability, daily, to secure his or her job and work.
under the direction of this president, supported
by this board, under conditions such as displayed
at this Board of Trustees meeting.

personal connections.
The morning program was held in

After the first exotic lionfish
was captured in Florida Keys
waters Jan. 7, experts warned
others would soon be found.
On Monday, the second,
Pacific lionfish was netted on the
oceanside edge of Molasses Reef,
off Key Largo.
"It's still a young fish but def-
initely bigger than the first one,"
said Lad Akins, special projects
director: for the Reef Environ-
mental Education Foundation.
Lionfish, a Pacific species,
have become a concern through-
out the Caribbean because they
breed rapidly and devour almost.
any small fish. The lionfish also
has poisonous spines that cause
highly painful stings if an unwary
diver or swimmer strikes one.
Lionfish likely were intro-
duced to the Atlantic Ocean when


released by a private aquarist, or
when a tank flooded during a hur-
ricane, experts believe.
Lionfish have been seen off
the U.S. coast as far north as New
England, but none were seen in
the Keys before January.
Akins caught both the Keys
lionfish, using his expertise from
catching "thousands" of lionfish
throughout the Caribbean, and
information provided by alert
local divers.
Jessica Pulfer, director of the
MarineLab program at the
Marine Resources Development
Foundation of Key Largo, spot-
ted the lionfish in about 27 feet of
water near a Molasses coral spur,
not far from the Wellwood
grounding restoration site six
miles offshore.
On Monday, the fish was
located in that exact area, in
about 20 feet of water on top of


the coral reef.
Akin said the lionfish was
found using Pulfer's precise
description of the location. Steve
Campbell, a Quiescence Diving
captain who works with the Key
Largo Volunteer Fire Depart-
ment's Water Emergency Team,
assisted with Monday's successful
capture off the department boat.
Both Keys lionfish were cdap-
tured within 24 hours of being
spotted, she noted.
Captured lionfish are eutha-
nized and dissected to see what
native fish they are eating. i
Anyone seeing a lionfish
should report it immediately,'but
do not attempt to capture it. Call
REEF at 852-0030 or the Mote
Marine Lab at 395-8730.
,Take note of the lochfibn
where the fish was seen, includ-
ing information such as GPS
coordinates, mooring-ball num-
bers, depth, and characteristics -of
surrounding reef or structures.

Commission has refused to adopt
that study.
Earlier this month, the County
Commission unanimously passed
a resolution asking the Navy to
"cease and desist" flying the F/A-
18s from' Boca Chica Field.
Although the resolution is not
legally binding, it did send a clear
message.
Now, Commissioner Mario Di
Gennaro is reportedly planning to
bring the resolution back -before
the commission and change his
vote.
"We're at a standstill right
now," Di Gennaro said. "I'm def-

He went on to say that he
thinks many of the issues facing
the county and the Navy will
"come out in the wash" following
a facilitated meeting.
In the meantime, the jets keep

the maximum sentence 45
years in prison for sexually
assaulting his daughter in late
2006.
Garcia told Delatorre, 34, that
he had "scarred" his daughter,
who was 13 at the time of the
assault, for the rest of her life.
"Your job is to protect your*
daughter from people like you,"
Garcia said to Delatorre.
Delatorre declined to say any-
thing when asked by Garcia
about the sentence.
Delatorre was convicted by a
six-person jury in February .on
two counts of sexual battery, and
found not guilty on one count.
Prosecutor Colleen Dunne
sought a 60-year sentence, but
Garcia ruled that one 6f the sexu-
al battery counts is a second-
degree felony with a maximum
sentence of 15 years. The first-
degree sexual battery count has a
maximum sentence of 30 years.
Garcia also denied a motion

... defender
James Hack,-
for a new trial.
Hack argued
that the jury's
guilty verdicts
were "contrary
to law or the
weight of the
DELATORRE evidence."
Delatorre's
father, Marcos, was the only per-
son involved in the case to show
up at the sentencing. He did not
want to comment, but did say he
thought his son was innocent.
Delatorre's daughter said in a
letter read by Dunne before
Garcia issued the sentence that
her father "deserves the fullest
and longest jail term available."
She said she wants Delatorre
to stay 'in prison for life so he
won't be able to "come after
myself or my family."
She testified during the trial
that on the night of the reported
rape, her father got drunk and
later sodomized her after her
grandfather, Marcos Delatorre,
had left the trailer where she lived
with her father.


The girl said her father had
molested her repeatedly since she
was 6 years old. During the trial,
Delatorre's half-sister testified
that he raped her 21 years ago
when she was 9 and he was a
teenager.
Police reported finding the
younger girl's underwear with
Delatorre's semen on it, and
pornography on his computer
depicting incest.
Delatorre claimed he was
being set up by his daughter, who
he said was blackmailing him to
be able to return to Georgia,
where they had lived months
before the alleged rape.
Before sentencing, Hack
argued that Dunne and the other
prosecutors were punishing
Delatorre "for exercising his con-
stitutional right to go to trial."'
Dunne denied the accusation,
although she said she did make it
clear to Delatorre that the state
would seek the maximum penalty
if he chose to go to trial rather
than plead guilty.
Garcia sentenced Delatorre to
30 years for the first count of sex-
ual battery and 15 consecutive
years for the second count.

Still no ID on body ow,,


Authorities on Tuesday were
still trying to determine both
the cause of death and the iden-
tification of a man found dead
in Key Largo on Saturday.
Deputies with the Monroe
County Sheriff's Office found
the man floating in mangroves
near mile marker 107. The
body is that of a white man.
Detectives said he may have
been in the water for several
days because his body was
decomposed.
i No injuries on his body indi-
cate a cause of death.
Toxicology tests are being per-
formed to see if they'll help
determine how he died.


As for his identity, detec-
tives said he had identification
in a wallet in the pocket of the
shorts he was wearing but that
the condition of his body didn't
allow them to confirm if the ID
belongs to him. Detectives say
they may have to use finger-
prints or dental records to
determine that.
' The body was removed from
the .water and taken to the
Medical Examiner's Office on
Crawl Key.
Homicide Detective Mark
Coleman is the lead investiga-
tor on the case.

Puerto Vallarta opened in Key Largo on Jan. 9.


New option for Key Largo


New restaurant
specializes in
authentic Mexican
.,By DAVID GOODHUE
dgoodhue@keysreporter.com

Horacio Ramirez had so many
Upper Keys residents coming to
his Mexican restaurant in
Princeton that. he decided the
time was right to open one in Key
Largo.
Ramirez opened Puerto
Vallarta three months ago at mile
marker 105, oceanside. The
restaurant serves authentic
Mexican food made from recipes
from Ramirez's grandmothers,
from the seaside, city of Puerto
Vallarta.
Ramirez came to the United
States 22 years ago. He opened the
original. Puerto Vallarta at
Southwest 248 Street and U.S. 1
eight years ago, and thought the
time was right to open the Key
Largo location.
"Customers from Key Largo
kept coming to my place [in
Princeton], saying 'why don't
you move to Key Largo,' so that's
what I did," Ramirez said.
The restaurant is at the former
site of La Cuccina Italian restau-
rant, owned by Keys business-
man Bill Fern, who owns the
building.
: i Rai said his'restaurant' is


unique because most Americans
are used to eating Tex-Mex food,
and what he makes is cuisine
originating from Mexican. seaside
towns.
"Typical Mexican restaurants
serve enchiladas, burritos, fajitas
and tacos. We serve some of that
too, but we specialize in things
like ceviche, shrimp and octopus
cocktails, fish soups, shrimp
soups, our seven oceans soup and
seafood enchiladas and fish
tacos," Ramirez said.
He said a big difference
between the food served at Puerto
Vallarta and Tex-Mex is that
recipes from the town of Puerto
Vallarta were heavily influenced
by Europeans.
Most entrees on the menu are
priced between $13 and $16. The
most expensive item is the Mar y
Tierra, a New York strip steak
and' lobster ;tail, which' cbts


Ait :" Horacio
m e Ramirez says
Lcr. the food he
serves is
unlike any
other
-- Mexican
"'-" food found
S'. in the Keys.
$34.99.
But the menu you see now
may not be the one you see three
months from now. Ramirez said
he has more than 1,500 recipes
and he's excited about serving
them all.
"This menu is only the begin-
ning," he said.
Puerto Vallarta also features
daily specials.
Ramirez is also offering a
locals' discount card, which earns
customers 10 percent off the price
of the meal. The card is good for
one year, he said. '
In about three weeks, Puerto
Vallarta will also be serving a
buffet-style breakfast on
Saturday and Sundays.
Puerto Vallarta, at 105045
Overseas Highway in Key Largo,
is open from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m.
daily. The phone number is 451-

Plants as cultural history?


You bet, and
they're right in
our back yard
By SEAN KINNEY
skinney@keynoter.com


If you've walked the
Southernmost City admiring the
lush, tropical foliage that lines
most streets and wondered,
"What kind of tree is that?" and
never followed up, the Key West
Tropical Forest and Botanical
Garden should be among your
stops.
Every Thursday, botanist
Stephen Hodges leads a class at
the garden, titled Docent 101, that
teaches the basics of plant identi-
fication, taxonomy and cultural
and historical information.
"I put a lot of effort into the
curriculum," Hodges said.
Education coordinator Victoria
Mendizabal described the course
as "college level."
Hodges is an ethnobotanist, so
in addition to the Latin naming
and identification, he can offer a
unique look at why certain plants
are in the Keys.
"There's a lot of cultural histo-
ry across the board" as it pertains


to plants, Hodges said "Because
we share our flora with. the North
Caribbean, a lot of what seems to
be unique to here could represent
traditions from Cuba or the
Bahamas."
He pointed to a Simpson's
Prickly Apple cactus, which is
found throughout the Keys but
only in areas, where people lived.
Hodges said he believes early
Keys settlers brought the cacti
with them from Cuba, where it
also grows, because it produces a
large, edible fruit.
"When you walk through the
forest, you can tell who was there
based on the plants," Hodges
said.
That's indicative of what he .
teaches in Docent 101.
The ultimate goal is to have
people go through the course and
then volunteer to give tours at the
botanical garden.
For folks who pledge to come
back and volunteer to give tours,
the class is free. For members of
the Botanical Garden, the class is
$10 per session. For all others,
it's $20 per session.
After you've taken Docent
101, you can sign up for Docent
102, which fqcupes on the variety-

In a few weeks, the Docent
102 class is taking a field trip to
the Big Cypress National
Preserve next to the Everglades to
study how the large, freshwater
swamp contributes, to, the. health,


of marine estuaries.
The next Docent 101 class

Reagan gives
10 free passes,
in district game
By DICK WAGNER
Keynoter Contributor.


Feasting, as is its custom, on
the dregs of District 16-4A, the
Key West High School baseball
team routed Reagan, 15-3,
Monday afternoon in Miami in a
game stopped after six innings by
the 10-run mercy rule.
It was the third district road
game for the Conchs in four
days.
They lost to Monsignor Pace
for the sixth consecutive time,
10-4, on Friday night, and defeat-
ed Westland Hialeah, 11-0, on
Saturday afternoon. Key West is
9-8 overall and 5-4 in district.
The Conchs had only five hits
against Reagan, but were aided
by 10 walks and four errors.
A sacrifice fly by Michael
Arencibia gave the Conchs a 1-0
lead in the first inning, and two.
more runs scored in the third on

Fins lose in extra frames


Tough loss
against Boca's
Spanish River
By RYAN McCARTHY
rmccarthy@keynoter.com

Much like a wild game last
Tuesday, the Marathon High
School baseball team let a late-
inning lead'slip away Monday
and was forced to play extra
innings. But this time, the
Dolphins couldn't pull out the
win.


The Dolphins were just two
outs from a third straight win,
but couldn't hold the lead and.
eventually lost 8-7 to Spanish
River High School in eight
innings. The loss came three
days after a 7-4 win Friday over
Miami Country Day.
Coach Luis Leal' termed the
Spanish River game was a great.
one to watch but a painful one
on which to be on the losing end.
"We hurt ourselves running
the bases and a couple mistakes
in the field, but again, that's part


of baseball. Those mistakes, you
just learn from them and hope
they don't happen again," Leal
said.
The Dolphins' young roster,
struggled mightily early this sea-'
son, but has stepped up its play
of late. The team is 4-9 this sea-
son.
Things looked bad for the
Dolphins early, as the Sharks
built a 4-1 lead. But Marathon
exploded for six runs in the bot-
tom of the fifth inning and actu-
ally led 7-4.

Lady Fins shut out Ransom


By Ryan McCarthy
rmccarthy@keynoter.com

Alli Heller pitched a four-hit
complete game shutout Saturday
night to help the Marathon High
School softball team to a 3-0 home
win over Ransom Everglades..
Heller, a low-ball pitcher, hit
her spots to- perfection and shut
r down a solid Raiders lineup. The
; Dolphins also played solid
defense, with just one error.
'"Usually, we, have the one bad
inning syndrome, but we're start-
ing to get rid of it," coach Andrea


Murphy said.
The girls have been hovering
around the .500 mark for several
weeks now after a sluggish start,
but Murphy said a 9-10 record is
OK based on the level of competi-
tion the team's faced. -
"There are a few games that got
away from us, but I'd much rather
play tougher teams and have a
worse record," she said, noting it
prepares the team for district tour-
nament play at the end of the year.

Left-hander Drew Rivera

The highlight of the weekend

"We played a completely dif-
ferent team," she said.
The Dolphins got on the board
first thanks to aggressive base run-
ning by Shelby Kuck. Kuck sin-
gled, stole second, moved to third
on a passed ball and eventually
scored on a fielder's choice to give
the Dolphins a 1-0 first-inning
lead.


The Dolphins' last run came in
the sixth inning, when Kuck led
off with a triple and scored on
another fielder's choice.
Kuck was 2-for-3 with a triple
and two runs scored, while Kelley

Marathon High School's boys

at Miami Country Day.
The boys improved to 3-6 on


the year and the girls moved to 9-
2 after a close 3-4 loss to
Carrollton on Friday.

No. 1 doubles for the Dolphin
boys; they easily earned an-8-1
win as they gear up for the April
14 district tournament. Danaher
and Wonderlin won No. 1 and
No. 2 singles, as well, each by an
8-1 score. .
Ricardo Dominguez, normally
a doubles specialist, won 8-1 in
the No. 3 singles slot, while

Sabres with a scrambled lineup,

Plus, the age-old question is.
prevalent with many kinds of
fish: What parts do I keep and
what parts do I throw away?
Filleting is a skill learned over
time and with much practice.
Obtaining a high skill level while
still possessing all of your fingers
is always ,a bonus. Speed is not
always the sign of a good fish
cleaner, particularly if one is par-
taking in a celebratory brew or
two.
To obtain the very best flavor
of. fresh Keys fish, proper cook-
ing is essential. You don't just
slap it in a frying pan and cook it
until it turns dark brown. This
quite often is overcooking and
will make the meat taste dry arid,
in some cases, too fishy tasting.
Mostlight-meat fish will cook
quite quickly and should be
extremely moist and flaky.
On the other hand, tuna and
cobia are prime examples of
darker or heavier, textured meat
that can be marginal in flavor if
overcooked. But if done right,
they're awesome.
At this week's free fishing
seminar at our Marine Educa-
tional Center, we will cover all
aspects of this everything from
how to get your fish into the boat,
how to chill it, clean it, cook it and
pack it for storage. We'll teach
about what to do with your catch
so you can get the most out of it.
The free session is at 6 p.m.
Sunday at the World Class Angler,
directly across U.S. 1 from the
Marathon Community Park.
