"Our folks live in the commu-
nity, as well. I, too, have con-
cerns." But "the [sound] levels
that I have seen ... haven't
reached a point where I'm con-
cerned.about the actual health of
citizens. Does it intrt1de on our
lives? You bet." -
Tuesday's session was set up
last month following increased
complaints from Lower Keys res-
idents affected by the noise from
Navy F/A-18 Super Hornets
practicing aircraft carrier take-
offs and landings.
Some Lower Keys residents
who have sound measuring
equipment have told the commis-
sion they've recorded sound ley-
els from planes flying within 200
feet to 1,000 feet above their
homes, emitting noise up to 120
decibels; noise above 84 decibels
is considered hazardous to hear-
ing.
Upper Keys Commissioner
Sylvia Murphy said, "My prob-
lent with the noise isn't the noise
alone. It's what it does to the
human body. It is not good for the
people that live under it and
therefore, it's not good for the
county." .
Eddie Perez, a Big Coppitt
Key resident, said he has raised
his kids with the jet noise in the
background and, "Commissioner

Murphy, they're doing well.
People come here, buy land, iPs
inexpensive, then they complain.
It's the same thing year after year.
Well, get the hell out of here!"
Lower Keys resident Basil
Cheney, on behalf of the M-10
Coalition, which is a group of
homeowners' associations that
has been the most vocal against
the Navy's jet noise, said, "There
is nothing to discuss" because the
Navy won't change its opera-
tions. "It would appear the audi-
tory assault on residents is not a
concern for the local command."
Holmes said the logistics of
asking pilots to take off and land
at a steeper trajectory is risky and
that switching runways doesn't
fix anything,
Rafael Montalvo, facilitating

Icant commitment of resources to
tackle the problems. You're look-

and I dori't know what that
process is. I think you have to
build it around your issues."
All told, 19 residents weighed

It all comes down to this when
it comes to U.S. Navy jet noise
rattling Lower Keys neighbor
hoods:
"You know our problem,"
Monroe County Commissioner
Mario Di Gennaro told Naval Air
Station Key West Commander
Capt. Stevea Holmes. "How carr
you help us? We all love the
Navy. We're reaching out to you.
How can we stop this problem so
we can live together?" .
Holmesreplied,"Idon'tknow
if there's a whole lot left that we
can do."
The exchange came Tuesday
at the Harvey Government
Center in Key West, where the
County Commission aild the
Navy sat down to try to find a
way to balance the Navy's need
to train against the quality of life
of the residents. '
The county commissioners all
agreed that the health impacts of
the jet noise on residents are their
main concern. Holmes said he
doesn't think there's a health
issue, only an annoyance issue,

Free-flowing alcohol and an
uninhibited atmosphere at The
Sandbar during the Expo attracts
crowds of party-goers and
law-enforcement officers.
As of mid-afternoon Tuesday,
nine people were arrested over
two days at the resort or nearby
areas.
One man, Elvin Garcia, 33, of
Miami, was charged with boating
under the influence in Whale
Harbor, but there were no serious
boating accidents reported. .
Two women were charged
with driving utider the influence
in the area. Other counts lodged
against suspects include battery,
trespass, resisting arrest and pos-
session of marijuana.
"It's nothing out of the ordi-
nary for this event," said Deputy
Becky Herrin, information officer
for the Monroe County Sheriffs


Deputies, including off-duty
officers hired by the resort, watch
for crirmnal violations and drunk
drivers.
The annual party, held after
the traditional end of South
Floricia's winter tourism season,
began life as Bartenders Week.
Activities grew so raucous, the
resort staff shorted the event sev-
eral years ago and beefed up
security. .
Mitrine law-enforcement
agencies plan in advance to blan-
ket the Whale Harbor area with
patrol boats from the FWC,
Sheriff's Office and U.S. Coast
Guard.
"We've got about 15 FWC
officers out here," Dube said.
"It's not like some other years,"
when there were many more
assigned to the Expo.

Tuesday, but some participants

Even a quieter version of
Hospitality Expo in Islamorada
was expected to bring more than
400 boats to The Sandbar on
Tuesday. -
It seems a little mellower
than in past years," said Officer
Bobby Dube of the Florida Fish
and Wildlife Conservation
Commission, "but there's still a
lot a crazy stuff going on."
Hospitality Expo is an end-of-
season celebration hosted by
Holiday Isle Resort and Marina
for staff workers in South
Florida's restaurants and bars.
Access to the resort is limited
to hospitality employees, brit

with the Expo traditionally gather

Phelps' daughter Shelia
Roper-Phelps, one of his 13 chil-

She told the Keynoter, "We're

because they've turned this coun-

Roper-Phelps' said that
although her group protests

'We're a bunch of raging perverts

get that. It's not going to get you
anything but sorrow and misery."
With all of that hate expected
in Key West, the local.plan, in a
nutshell, is to ignore it,
Last week, residents and com-
munity leaders met at the
Metropolitan Community
Church to address Phelps' arrival.
Pastor Joe McMurray said any
type of response "simply draws
attention to his presence and
gives him what he wants."
One group at Key West High
School is planning a "Phelps-a-
Thon," asking people to pledge
money for every minute that
Phelps is at the school. The
money would be donated to th6
school's Gay/Straight Alliance.
McMurray, formerly a pastor
in San Francisco, has dealt with
Phelps before. He said Phelps
earns the money to travel and
stage protests by inciting civic
violence against him and then
sumg municipalities.
He can only guess at the root
of Phelps' hatred.
"I would think that some of
this may be based on a personal
life experience or internalized
homophobia," McMurray.said.
Back in 1964, Phelps founded
a law firm but the Kansas
Supreme Court disbarred him in
1979.

Members of the Westboro
Baptist Church in Kansas are
bringing their unique blend of
apocalyptic, homosexual-hating
religion to the Solithernmost City
on May 22 for several planned
demonstrations.
But in a commuIiity whose
motto is One Human Family,
they're hardly being welcomed.
Fred Phelps founded the
church, which isn't recognized
by mainstream Baptist organiza-
tions and is monitored as a hate
group by the Anti-Defamation
League, in 1955; since then, the
congregation has grown to
around 70, the overwhelming
majority of whom are related to
Phelps.

A young Atlantic spotted dol-
phin that convalesced for almost
three months at a Key Largo
marine mammal rehabilitation
center was released Tuesday
about eight miles southwest of
Key West.
The release was accomplished
after volunteers from the Marine
Mammal Conservancy searched
for more than two days for a pod
of Atlantic spotted dolphins.
Normally, young rescued
marine mammals are not released
because they need their mothers
for nourishment and to learn sur-
vival skills.


ed by the pod and/or able to for-
age for food on its own.
. The dolphin was named
Cutter by U.S. Coast Guard per-
sonnel in Key West, because of
the proximity of its Feb. 14 cap-
ture next to their station.
Some dolphin advocates were
critical of MMC for removing
Cutter from the water.
. But MMC President Robert
Lingenfelser said, "If we had not
rescued him, he would have died.
Medical tests proved he was
starving and because of that, his
liver was compromised and there
were other issues.

The Sierra Club will
endorse Alternative 4, the
most protective of four possi-

by the park staff.
Keys boaters who frequent
Florida Bay generally have
expressed alarm about
Alternative 4's recommenda-
tion to declare areas of less

would cover massive areas of

done to better protect the
resources and allow access.
I'm less optimistic anything
will happen in a timely fash-

More than 600 people
turned out for the seven public
meetings on the bay propos-
als, including for two meet-
ings in Key Largo.
"Comments are still com-

on FEM A's next chief

Someone should tell Louisiana Sen. David Vitter that this is a
particularly bad time for him to exercise or- should we say
abuse? the senatorial privilege of placing a hold on an execu-
tive nomination.
14o one has raised a serious objection to the acceptance of
Florida's Craig Fugate as the next director of the Federal

xEen eigreencchMi ana menteeMnfl>uMR shut nvn annE
issue, as Vitter sees it, is that FEMA has not been quick enough
to respond to questions about three hurricane-recovery propcts
in Lottisiana following the devastation by Hurricane Katrina.
Holdmg up the nomination of Fugate, Florida's outstanding
emergency management director,' is his way if. getting the
agency's attention. That may serve his narrow political purpose,
but it is a disservice to everyone.who may need FEMA's help in
the near future, and that includes millions ofAmericaps.
As James' Lee Witt, an admired former FEMA director, said
recently, this not only is a time when the agency should be gear-
ing up for the imminent hurricane season, but it-also is wildfire
season in the West, the period of spring flooding in the Midwest
and toinadoes:in the South. The stakes simply are too high for
political posturing by a senator.
. Monroe County knows Fugate well. He drove down drove
dow! from Tallahassee.1ast May to sit on a panel at a
Keynoter/National Weather Service hurricane preparedness pro-
gram at the Marathon Government Center. He also did it in May
2006.
Tuesday, this newspaper thought his nomination was no longer
blocked because Gov. Charlie Crist's office -sent out a prepared
statement saying Ruben Almaguer was appointed interim direc-
tor of the Florida Division of Emergency Management; a deputy
director was also named. That would indicate Fugate had
resigned to take the federal job.
But m an e-mail, (;nst spokeswoman Sterling Ivey said that
ivasn't the case.
"Craig Fugate has not resigned his position. The interim
appointments announced today will provide direct contacts and
leadership at the Division of Emergency Management as we
approach the start of the 2009 hurricane season," Ivey wrote.
Whett Fugate was nominated on March 4, the move drew
praise from both parties, as well it should have. He has been in
the eye of the storm many times as director of Florida's emer-
gency management agency, and consistently has performed well.
He is needed in Washington. Bitter should quit playing games
and drop his hold.befbre FEMA's next crisis arrives.

Editor's note: Marathon Fire Rescue has two

permanent solutions, perhaps building a Grassy

In the May 2 edition, a piece by Ryan
McCarthy, "City finally can say it's fully ramped
up," called attention to the work completed ort
Vaca ICey, often confused with the city of
Marathon. The fact is that the Vaca Key boat
ramps are all ready to receive traffic. That's good,
but there is more to Marathon than Vaca Key.
How about the ramp on Grassy Key, that other
part of Marathon? Oh, wait there isn't one.
And while we are on the subject of services, how
about the Grassy Key fire station? Oh, wait, there

I would like to take this opportunity to thank
the emergency room staff at Fishermen's Hospital
in Marathon for saving my wife's Larissa's life,
and a special thanks to Dr. Lawrence Goldschlager,
whose quick thinking saved my wife from certain
deal tarted when my wife complained of a small
headache in the early morning hours of April 13.
She started tavomit a small amount of blood; this
really frightened me. She was unable to move, so I
got her dressed and carried out to my truck and
rushed her to Fishermen's Hospital, where they did
a CAT scan and found a hematoma (bleeding ort
the brain) the size of a grapefruit.
They called TraumaStar and then proceeded to
paralyze my wife for transport. TraumaStar was
there in 15 minutes and flew her to Baptist
Hospital in Miami. Neurosurgeon Dr. Jack Klem
and his team were.waiting for her. -
They rushed her into surgery. After opening up
her skull to remove and drain the hematoma, they
discovered a tunior underneath. They removed the
tumor, which thankfully was benign.
The surgeon.came out to me in the waiting
room and told me she is very close to death and
that she might not make it; the next 24 hours will
tell if she will survive. If I had waited one more
hour to take her to the hospital, she would have
died. I was in shock. How could a small headache
turn mto rnaybe dying?

resources better than this? It is in the
interests of community health for the
village to make the pool more avail-
able and promote regttlar swimming
by residents.
When I went to the pool on
January afternoon, it was open but
only if you were on the Duke
University swim team. I wrote each .
Village Council member then asking
why the pool was closed that day. No
one on the council except Jill Zima-
Borski bothered to reply.
It seems the Village Council is
allowing village administrators to use
- the pool as a private swim club for
elite swim teams, but Islamorada tax-
payers who paid to join the pool are
being told to drive to Key Largo and
pay to swim there.

EDITOR: .
The Founders Park pool has been
closed since October on Tuesdays
due to budget cutbacks.
When the village cut the budget
for the pool, apparently the first thing
to go was the lifeguards. When I
went by the pool on a recent day, the
. administrative staff was hard at
work. People in staffT-shirts were
tossing around a football, but the
pool was locked shut. I was advised
if I want to swim on Tuesdays I
should go to the Key Largo pool.
Even though I pay Islamorada
taxes-and a pool membership fee, it
is not enough to keep the pool open
for swimming Tuesdays, although it
is apparently enough to keep it fully
staffed with administrative and sup-
port staff.

EDITOR: .
It will take a lot of paint and a huge paint-
brush to thank the many visitors and residents
who have supported the Bougainyillea House
Gallery these past 10 years. The artist mem-
bers have reached the difficult decision to
close our beautiful gallery as of May 31. -
This sad news comes on the heels of relo--
cating to the Greater Marathon Chamber of
Commerce and Visitors Cehter in January
2008. That move offered us an exciting.and
new opportunity, and we were so looking for-
ward to a longtime commitment in our space
there.. '
We celebrated our 10th anniversary in
March with a huge party and raffle, and it
was well attended by our local art lovers and
visitors alike. Unfortunately, the economy has
greatly affected the art world and with the.
weaker sales this season, some artists have
left the gallery. This past month, we had to
face the reality we just did not have enough
resources or manpower to keep the gallery
open.
Our last day opey to the public will be
Saturday the 23rd. We will use the remaining


here, to the Greater Marathon Chamber


days of May to dismantle the space.
The executive director of the chamber,
Daniel Samess, and his board have been so
supportive in working with us and all of us so
appreciate their help. It has been a wonderful
relationship between u Our community
offered a welcoming visitor center for our
travelers and a local art gallery, side by side.
Our thanks also go to the media and radio
stations who have been so supportive over
the past 10 years in communicating our open
houses, announcements of new artists and our
big move in 2008. We thank everyone.
Our artists have been mvited to show their
work at Kennedy Studios in the Tdwn Square
Mall, and that invitation by owner Marija
Schissler has softened the blow to us all. Our
customers wEstill be able to see local art-
work by local artists in the Middle Keys.
We will miss our many supporters, we
will miss our motto of "Local Artists
Working Together" and, it goes without-say-
ing, we wB very much miss the

As the authors and lobbyists .
moving the Florida Keys Water
Quality Improvement Act forward
in Congress as a part of the Water
Resources Development Act, I am
sure I speak for The Nature
Conservaticy's Jody Thomas as well
as myself in saying how pleased we
are to see significant federal dollars
appropriated to very deserving
municipalities in the Florida Keys.
There is no question that the dol-
lars awarded reflect the ongoing
commitment and forward movement
on-wastewater projects oh behalf of
the communities receiving this
funding. Particularly in a budget


year that is extremely difficult for
Florida, where funding we have his-
torically enjoyed from the state is
just not available, the federal stimu-
lus dollars fill a critical gap.
Many people share in this
notable accomplishment, but I
would like to recogmze one silent
hero, for without the tireless and
persistent efforts on the part of Mr.
Tom Davidson-of the Ocean Reef
Club, we would never have secured
the authorization from the U.S.

most property owners would pay
the same in school taxes next year
as in the current year, Pribramsky
said he still considers that a tax
increase because people general-
ly have less income and net worth
than last year.
Acevedo had proposed a 2
percent tax increase, but board
Chairman Andy Griffiths, who
proposed the $3 million cut, and
board niember Duncan
Mathewson said taxes should at
least remain the same.
Board member Debra Walker
said the cuts were the most she
would -support, as the district "is
going to need every single penny
next year."
Brit Dick said there is likely
more fat to trim in the district
administration. He cited a com-
parison of administrative and
other non-teaching employees at
seven Florida school districts
closest in size to Monroe County.
He said Monroe County has
153 administrative employees.
Nassau County, which has
3,000 more students, has 114.
The average of the seven other
districts is 103. Dick said reduc-
ing 50 employees in the Keys
would save roughly $5 million.
Deputy Superintendent Mike
Henriquez said many of Monroe
County's administrators are
required and paid for by federal
and state grants for programs not
at other districts. Walker also
wondered how many teachers
were employed at those districts.

didn't know why.
"To go out and buy something

A divided Monroe County
School Boardon Tuesday made it
clear it will not raise taxes next
year, .leaving the superintendent
to cut more than $3 million in
non-classtoom spending from the
budget.
The board also debated how
$54,000 in supplies was pur-
chased for a Marathon High
School project to build a Habitat
for Humanity home, how the
Finance Department missed cer-
tain spending controls and
what kind of person the board can
hire to track the district's spend-
ing. -
But as with almost all budget
and spending discussions the past
two years, board.members Steve
Pribramsky and John Dick were
on the outside, saying more
reform is needed'- a point they
said is most recently proven by
the current fmance scandal.
"We're going to tell taxpayers
... trust us after this scandal?" said
Pribramsky, referring to the
recent arrest of former adminis-
trator Monique Acevedo,
Superintendent's Randy
Acevedo's wife, for the alleged
theft of $180,000 in school dis-
trict cash. .
"It's come home to roost,"
Dick told Acevedo. You fought
us, and now the burden of all that
is going to be on the taxpayers."
The other three board mem-
bers voted to direct Acevedo to
cut more than $2 million in non-
instructional spending from the
current $89.7 million budget, as
well as move- an additional $1
million into reserves, to bring the
2009-10 budget down to $86.7
million.
The cuts would ensure the dis-
trict collects the same amount of
local tax revenues in the current
year. However, the tax rate ---
currently $292.20 per $100,000
of property value would
increase 14 percent next year due
to a corresponding drop in prop-
erty values throughout the Keys.

It's not exactly what he had in

his Big Pine Key property.
Beal learned last week that a

final approval from both Monroe
County and the state Department
of Community Affairs but
that's nowhere near the 34, units
and 10,000-square-foot marine

homes, which would have been,
20 percent of them, market rate,
and to build out my building up
to 10,000 square feet," Beal said,
referring to his U.S. 1 storefront
at mile marker 30.5. .
But that plan never came to
fruition, Beal says, due to the Big
Pine Key and No Name Key
Habitat Conservation Plan, which
passed in 2006 after years of
planning. The plan sets land aside
for conservation to offset devel-
opment, which is determined by
encroachment on the endangered
Key deer's habitat.
Beal is admittedly nof a fan of
the conseivatiorr plan.
"Every property has a harvest
value in Big Pine. What that
-
means is how many Key deer are
you allowed to kill by developing
that property,'' he said. "It has so
many holes in it that it should be
scrapped."


Plans for the 2.4-acre site can
be found at www.cayaplace
.com. The first 16 units will take
up the 1.2-acre east lot at the
.property. Plans on the site show
them as eight duplexes, each with
two three-bedroom, 1,400-
square-foot.homes.
Beal hopes to add four more
duplexes on the west lot, along
with the Caya Marine > Tech
school building.
"It's a real-time- marine voca-
tional school. We'll take the same
customer base we've had for
years and put a technician with
the student and fix these people's
boats and teach them real-time
marine trade in real life," Beal
said.

Higgins said the meeting
should have been held much
sooner since the contracts will
be voted on next week, but
that "we're going to take it on

the recommendations.
"We're fine with the con-

ments and that we keep talk-
ing," she said.


4 trash deals
Set fOr approval
next Wednesday
By RYAN McCARTHY
rmccarthy@keynoter.com

Florida Keys Green Living
and Energy Education
President Allison Higgins says
a Tuesday sit-down with coun-
ty officials has her feeling
much better about four trash
contracts set to be renewed at
the May 20 County
\ Commission meeting. .
The contracts call for
stepped-up efforts to boost
countrywide recycling from 13
percenttoday to 40 percent by
2014, and will generate higher
franchise fees to help fund
recycling campaigns.
But Higgins said the volun-
teer organization remains con-
cerned over language regard-
ing recycling in the contracts.
She said the contracts ivill be
renewed as is, but' that the
county and its four waste
haulers have pledged to
address GLEE's concerns. s
"Basically the contract
itself is going to stand as is
because they really want to be
done with it, but all of our rec-
ommendations they didn't
have a problem with. They
have pledged to do them and
keep sitting at the table and
work on our waste reduction
as well as recycling," Higgins
said.
Among the recommenda-
tions Higgins skid GLEE
made to the county: An.annuaL
education plan to be submitted
and approved by the county, a
request that the contracts be
made into one document for
readability, and to make resi
dents aware yard waste and
trash should be kept separate
despite being picked 11p ori the
same day in some areas.

community. He has history -
that's something we're greatly
lackixig in this community.
We're like a ship without a rud-
der without him."
There was no discussion
among commissioners and after


the vote, Commissioner Mario
Di Gennaro, who nominated
Cameron, said simply, "Thank
you."
Last month, Cameron, then
the chairman, was removed from
his seat when the County
Commission changed the way it
appoints planning advisors. It
used to be that county law
allowed sitting commissioners to
appoint or reappoint members to
that board months before elec-
tions that could potentially otist
their sponsor from office. '
Now, newly elected commis-
sioners get their own appoint-,
merits.
Dixie pehar, who has since
been replaced on the County
Commission by Kim Wigington,
had appointed Cameron. Last
month, when the process
changed, Wigington replaced


Cameron with past Planning
Commission member Demse
Werling.
When Cameron was
removed, Planning Commission
member John Marston, whom Dr
Gennaro had appointed, quit in
protest. Cameron fills Marston's
seat.
The County Commission
meets in regular session on May
20 but Di Gennaro had placed
Cameroh's appointment on the
agenda for Tuesday, when the
commission met with U.S. Navy
officials to discuss jet noise.
Di Gennaro said he did so so
that the Planning Commission
would have no vacancies when it
met for its regular meeting
scheduled for May 19. However,
that meeting has since been can-
celled.


The Monroe County
. Commission on Tilesday unani-
mously voted to reappoint Jim
Cameron to the county Planning
Commission.

Chamber president:
It's better here than

anywhere else

By MARGARET MENGE
mmenge@keynoter.com

- Michael Kriowles, general
manager of the Doubletree
Grand Key Resort and the presi-
dent of the Key West Chamber
of Commerce, likes to look at
things his own way: Room rates
'td thi th
aren own s year ey re
bringing in 90 percent of what
the brought mPsts d as the

new head of the. chamber in
January, and in hiss acceptance
speech he struck an upbeat note.
He's kept that up .through the
spring, and even now, as an
uncertain summer looms on the
horizon, points out that here in

thaedKeys, things just aren't that
UnemployMent has almost
doubled here in the last year, to
5.9 percent for Key West and 6.2
percent for all of Monroe
County as of February. But. it
isn't nearly as bad as the state as
a whole, where the unemploy-
ment rate for the same month
was 9.6 percent.
"This hotel was breaking
every record last year,"Knowles
says of the Doubletree. Room
rates are down this year, he says,
but the number of guests in the
hotel has remained about the
same as last year in every month
of 2009. "That's absolutely
amazing," be says in his
Bahamian accent.

said he hasn't seen the numbers
from the central office, but it
seemed that the Doubletree in
Key West was in the upper third
of Doubletrees nationwide in
terms of a drop of room rates.
Rates here have only .dropped
around 10 percent: At hotels m
other places, rates have dropped
25 percent or more. "I just think
Key West is unique," says
Knowles.
So far this month, occupancy
at the Doubletree is down about
4 percent when compared with
May of 2008. But that, says
Knowles, is not so bad.

a Little Torch Key resident.
Teams raised a combined
$7,791 for local charities, with

Dolphin lineman
has decent shot
at making roster
By RYAN McCARTHY
rmccarthy@keynoter.com

The lure of Division [football
proved too great this week for
Marathon High School lineman
David Huntt.
The senior signed this week
with Florida Atlantic University
as a preferred football walk-on
and will take his chances at earn-
ing a roster spot and a scholar-
ship. Coach Lance Martin said
Division I programs make these
type of offers to players they
believe could help the team.
"In essence, they are recruited.
You can't just show up and say I
want to play for you guys," he
said. "It's up to him now.'s
The Owls, who play in the
Sunbelt Conference, were 7-6 last
year. They open this year's sea-
sononSept;.5atNebraska.
FAU coach Howard
Schnellenberger, then coach at
the University of Miami, .beat
Nebraska in the 1983 Orange
Bowl to give the Hurricanes their
first national title.

Martin said Huntt spurned
offersfromDivisionlIandEyro-
gramsinfavorofthechancetoplay
football at the highest collegiate
level. If he doesn't make it, Martin
said it won't be for lack of effort.
"He works harder than just
about anyone we've had come
through this program," he said.


At 6 feet, 2 inches tall and 230
pounds, Huntt is a three-year
starter on the offensive line and
played on the defensive line last
year for the first time. He had 25
tackles in 2008, along with 25
assists, six sacks, five tackles.for
a loss, one forced fumble and one
fumble recovery.


Martin said Huntt is a tireless
worker in the weight room and
constantly works on improving
his game.
"He made himself the kind of
player he is. It wasn't something
he was just born with,"he said.
Marathon graduate ,Ryan
Paros played at FAU.


The course has been set for

thpe o tn Me
to start at I p.m. Sunday as the
highlight of a race weekend that
begins Friday.
The race is to take place in the
watersaroundMarathon.Starting
ori the gulf side of the Seven Mile
Bridge, boats are to race under
the bridge on the north side of
Pigeon Key to the riskier ocean
side, make two left turns, then
run back under the bridges at
speeds in excess of 150 mph.
A right turn sends the high-
speed boats thundering past the
shoreline and grandstands. The
racers then must negotiate a tight
180-degree turn to run the long
straightaway in front of fans back
to the starting point. Another
sharp left turn begins the route all
over again.

about as good as it gets, with
cool-enough Water tempera-

and calm enough where you
can spot them like the pros
(yet far enough away to actual.
ly plan your cast).
The trick is to have the right
gear in hand for what is com-
ing next. The permit, tarpon
and bonefish have been so well
mixed that it has been tough to
have three different rigs ready.
Problems like these are fun to
complain about.

Donna Hart of Big Pine Key, with mate for the day John Sipes
on her husband Buddy's boat the'Let it Rip,'shows a nice bull
dolphin she caught off Big Pine. The dolphin fishing is prime
right now.


The bridge tarpon fishing
has picked up dramatically the
past week. The -late bite has
been the -best, with more fish
seeming to be feeding after
dark. This is not a good time
for getting pictures but a great
time for action.
Earlier in the day, try.put-
ting your bait near the bottom
for the finicky ones. If nothing
else, at least they will have to
swim around the bait to get by.
Live shrimp has been getting
quite a bite near the slacking
tide, as well.
The reef has been alive with
yellowtail, especially at night.
The daytime fishing on the
reef has been fair, with some
good grouper and scattered
'tails, but the heat with the
light winds has been tough on
anglers. The evenings with the
dark of the moon have been
best in a wide variety of water
depths. .
From 45 to 110 feet, reports
have been very good, with
some real nice-sized flags
being brought in. I'm not say-
ing that just anywhere is going
to be good; you still have to
look for the schools on your
. fish finder. When you find
them, they have been aggres-
sive. Cut fresh mullet has been
a very good bait tipped on a
yellow Cy Fly flat-lined back
in the chum. If the current is
strong, add a split shot.
Now, onto the one fish that
more than 80 percent of the.


anglers are going out for -
dolphm.
For those who have been
here for most of the month,
you remember that the first
couple of weeks, we could not
even get to 300 feet without
having several internal organs
switching places. Since it has
calmed down, so many people
- have been fishing offshore that
ghe oil companies have had a
several office parties. Yes, the
fuel docks tell the story.
Now, I do understand fish-
ermen. Iknow that what a fish
is estimated at when it's
brought aboard and what it
actually weighs when put on a
scale are two very different
figures. Still, the fish have
been very accommodating
some of the largest fish I have
heard of in years are coming
through.
The fishing is so hot now
that it doesn't seem to matter
what you drag. I still prefer the
artificial baits because I seem
to pull the larger fish out of the
school and I can cover so
much more ground.
But generally, no matter
what you use, you will be
rewitrded with fresh fish for
dinner as well as a great time
on the water.
