for District 4


Rosenthal
joins crowded
commission race
By RYAN McCARTHY
rmccarthy@keynoter.com

Longtime Islamorada res-
ident Henry Rosenthal, a
magician, will look to pull
his greatest trick this
November - winning elec-
tion to the Monroe County
Commission.
Rosenthal, who's traveled
the world performing magic
shows, filed Tuesday to run
for incumbent Mario Di
Gennaro's District 4 seat.
He's the fifth candidate -
and only Democrat - to
declare for what's become a
crowded race.
Four people now seek to
oust the Republican Di
Gennaro: Rosenthal, GOP
member David Rice of


Marathon, and Don Vasil of
Marathon and Mike Forster
of Islamorada, both of whom
are running with no party
affiliation.
Rosenthal, the former
owner of the Whale Harbor
Inn and Green Turtle Inn,
couldn't be reached for com-
ment by press time Tuesday.
It's' been nearly 25 years
since Rosenthal last gave pol-
itics a go. He came in third
behind current state Rep. Ron
Saunders and then-Monroe
County Mayor Wilhelmina
Harvey in the 1986 state rep-
resentative race.
That race was Saunders'
first run for office. He served
from 1986 to 1994 in the
House, then ran unsuccessful-
ly for secretary of state and
state senator. Voters returned
him to the House in 2006.
Rosenthal also ran for the
District 4 County Commission

Felony decorating:

Cheeca guard charged

Keynoter Staff

The new furnishings at
Cheeca Lodge and Spa in
Islamorada are so nice that a
security guard there decided to
decorate his apartment with
much of them, says the Monroe
County Sheriff's Office.
Tony Campo, 27, was
charged Saturday with two
counts of grand theft; with
more charges expected to be
filed. His ex-girlfriend turned
him in.
Sheriff's Office spokes-
woman Becky Herrin says
the ex told authorities that
Campo "had taken so many
things from the resort that
he'd practically decorated his


apartment
with them."

more than $50,000 worth of
stuff he allegedly stole from
the resort, whose main build-

Year's Eve 2008. It reopened
this past December with all
new furnishings.
Among the goods found,
Herrin says: Furniture, rugs,
television sets, electronics,
paintings, clothing and tools.
They also found two paddle-
boards stolen from Bay and
Reef, a watersports company
that operates at the resort.
The boards were reported
stolen in February.

In Monroe County, one
out of 10 property owners
have yet to pay their 2009
property taxes, which were
due by April 30.
The list of those parcels
and their owners now delin-
quent on taxes - 61 pages
worth - is inserted in
today's Keynoter.
Tax Collector Danise D.
Henriquez said her office
received payments for 89
percent of Monroe County's
estimated 56,000 taxable,
parcels as of April 30.
"That's pretty good,"
Henriquez said.
She 'said her office has


More than $16 million remains
unpaid by Keys property owners


distributed $217 million to
the county's taxing authori-
ties so far this year.
The remaining properties
- 5,094, to be exact - rep-
resent nearly $16.7 million
in unpaid taxes. Henriquez
said the number is close to
last year's delinquent list.
Reasons for nonpayment
vary, she.said, but added that
the challenging economy is
clearly taking a toll.
"As far as our collections
are concerned, we've been
finding that it's been more
difficult [for people] to pay
their taxes," she said.


Based on past trends, it's
likely that the bills on many
of the parcels will be paid
between today, when the list
is published for the first of
three times, and May 28.
Property owners who pay
their bills now owe a 3 per-
cent penalty.
Unpaid debts are listed
online today at www.bid
monroe.com, from where
they'll be sold June 1 as tax
sale certificates if still unpaid.
Interested buyers can bid
on the certificates starting
today. The certificates
include the amount due, plus


the cost of advertising and
the sale. The certificate sale
ensures that the county gets
its property taxes one way or
another.
Last year, 2,988 tax sale
certificates ultimately went
on the block, Henriquez said.
"In the past, we've
always sold every certificate
we had for auction." she said.
While 1,168 went unsold
during last spring's auction,
she said, all but 200 of those
have since been purchased.
The interest rate on each
certificate starts at 18 per-
cent - representing the
,interest to be paid by the
debtor - but the winners in

BP: We're here to help


Crist calling
special session
about drilling
By KEVIN WADLOW
Senior Staff Writer
kwadlow@keynoter.com
A Florida Keys response
to the effects of the
Deepwater Horizon oil spill
remains unsettled, officials
said Tuesday, because no
one knows what the local
effects - if any - will be.
"It's the uncertainty that's
driving us all nuts," Monroe
County Administrator
Roman Gastesi said at a spe-
cial County Commission


workshop in Key Largo.
"We just don't know."
Keith Seilhan, an incident
commander for British
Petroleum, told the County
Commission, "The commit-
ment we have is that we're
going to clean it up; any-
thing impacted will be
restored."
Seilhan continued, "We
recognize there is quite a bit
of impact on commerce. We
will resolve those issues."
Meanwhile, in Tallahassee,
Gov. Charlie Crist said
Tuesday that he plans to call
the Florida Legislature into
special session to discuss a
possible state .constitutional
amendment that would forev-
er close state waters to oil


exploration. No date was
announced.
In Key Largo, Gastesi,
Seilhan and U.S. Coast Guard
Capt. Pat DeQuattro all
emphasized to commission-
ers that the Keys could yet
escape damage from the spill.
While oil continues to
flow into the Gulf of Mexico
at an estimated rate of
210,000 gallons daily from
the shattered Deepwater
Horizon pipeline, the spill so
far remains confined to the
northern gulf.
The spill remains about
70 to 90 miles from the Loop
Current that could bring oil
down the west Florida coast
and into the Florida Straits.
The spill lies 450 miles away


from the Keys.
"Our best estimate right
now, as of [Tuesday] morn-
ing, would be that if it gets
into the Loop Current, it
would be 10 to 15 days
before it got into our area,"
said Sean Morton, superin-
tendent of the Florida Keys
National Marine Sanctuary.
Seilhan and response
officials repeatedly used the
phrase "not in imminent
danger right now" when
referring to the Keys.
The BP representative
said the oil is expected to
break up and degrade as it
spreads. "It's not going to be
black flow of oil, I don't

the online auction are
those who bid for the low-
est interest rate.
While the interest rate
on each certificate can go
as low as 0.25 percent,
Florida law guarantees the
certificate holder will
receive no less than 5 per-
cent. Henricquez said it's
also possible for someone
to place a no-interest bid.
The holder of a tax cer-
tificate has no rights to the
property on which the debt
is outstanding, regardless of
whether the debt is settled.
Tax certificate sales
used to be the province of
local people who wanted a
guaranteed return on an
investment. But Henriquez
said that in recent years,
more banks have been bid-
ding on the certificates and
winning them.
Out-of-towners are also
getting into the game.
That's the benefit of the
online auction, she said.
"You can be anywhere and
sit home and purchase,
those certificates."
Henriquez said she
doesn't know how many
properties on the list are in
some state of foreclosure.
"We wouldn't be able


to tell that," she said. "We
don't have records of any
of the foreclosures. Most
of the banks do send
checks and pay the proper-
ty taxes."
Property owners some-
times delay paying their
taxes while appealing their
assessments.
Karl D. Borglum, the
county's assistant property
appraiser, said owners
appealed on 2,043 parcels
in 2009 - nearly double
the previous year's total.
Of those, he said 1,759
were resolved between his
office and the owners, and
the rest were decided by a
special master - all in the
property appraiser's favor,
he said.
"Taxes go up, and
there's more motivation to
lower your value," Borglum
said, explaining one.
The tax sale certificates
are good for two years. If
the debt remains unpaid at
that time, the certificate
holder can file a tax deed
application. The application
forces the debtor - the
property's owner - to clear
all debts with the certificate
holder or face having to
auction off the property.

Jail guard's beer spiked


Strange pill
found in beer
at local bar
Keynoter Staff

Someone apparently
spiked a Keys jail guard's
beer with some sort of pill
Sunday afternoon.
Key West police officer
Carter Sims says in a report,
that he was working an off-


duty detail at Big Uns at 218
Duval St. about 1:30 p.m.
when he was approached by
the Monroe County Sheriff's
Office guard, a 29-year-old
woman.
He says she "had a plastic
cup in her hands and a con-
cerned look on her face as
she approached me outside."
Carter wrote that she told
him she'd been sitting at the
back bar with friends, sat her
drink on the bar, "turned
around for a brief moment,


turned back around, and
began to drink out of her
cup." As she drank the beer,
she "felt a strange object in
her mouth. She spit the drink
back into the cup and dis-
covered a small pill" in the
beer.
She picked it out of the
cup to see what it was, then
put it back in the beer, where
it started to dissolve. Neither
Carter nor the guard could
determine what the pill was
or who put it in her beer.


Six interested in running ferry


State plans
to fund it
5 more years

By RYAN McCARTHY
rmccarthy@keynoter.com

With an expensive over-
haul of the old Seven Mile
Bridge on the backburner, the
state Department of
Transportation will fund
ferry service to historic
Pigeon Key for at least the
next five years.
The current contract with
Paradise Divers Inc. expires
June 30 and Monroe County
officials will choose the next
provider Monday.
Paradise co-owner Linda
Kruszka told the Keynoter
she was one of six people to
obtain a request for proposals
for information from the
county. She's unsure how


many companies actually
placed a bid.
"We delivered our bid this
morning," she said Tuesday,
adding the proposal is for one
year with options for four
annual renewals.
Information on the bid
specifics could not be obtained
from the county Legal
Department by press time.
Paradise began ferry serv-
ice to Pigeon Key in December
2007 and, according to
Kruszka, has been running vis-
itors to the island every day
since, even Christmas.
Pigeon Key Foundation
Executive Director Kelly
McKinnon says Paradise has
been much more than a ferry
service. The boat runs
between Knights Key and
Pigeon Key.
"They've been incredible
going above and beyond
what their contract calls for.
We had some staffing issues


and they actually gave the
tour for a couple of months.
When I first took over, they
came out and we had to
board up when [Hurricane
Ike] was, coming and they
helped me board up all 13
buildings," he said.
Ferry service was sup-
posed to be temporary until
the county repaired the fail-
ing old Seven Mile Bridge.
State and local budget con-
cerns put the $34 million
project on the backburner
and vehicle traffic is banned
on the span.
That makes the ferry serv-
ice important to the island's
survival, McKinnon said.
"It's an absolutely vital
service. Without it, we're
completely lost," he said.
The county received a
$750,000 grant from the state
Department of Trans-
portation in 2007 to fund the
ferry for up to three years.

But tar balls or an oil
sheen could eventually
reach. South Florida, he
acknowledged.
"The biggest question I
get is, what happens if these
concentrated tar balls hit our
reef?" Commissionep Mario
De Gennaro asked. "We
have to find but what the hell
we do if they do hit our reef."
Morton said it's "diffi-
cult to project" any effect
on the Keys reef because
"the properties of the oil are
a big unknown right now."
Commissioner Heather
Carruthers said Keys hote-
liers already are reporting
trip cancellations.
"BP needs- to do adver-
tising to let people know
Florida beaches are still
open and not dirty,"
Carruthers said.
County tourism consultant
Andy Newman said advance


bookings have taken- a hit
because "people are waiting
to see what happens before
making a reservation."
Gastesi compared the
spill to "a prolonged hurri-
cane or tropical-storm acti-
vation. It looks like it will be
a five- to seven-week event,
or we may be dealing with it
all summer, or all year...."
BP will be here for the
long term to address these
issues," Seilhan said.
"When [the spill] is over,
we know the battle won't be
over, it's just starting."
"'Relax' is the biggest
word right now," .Gastesi
said. "We need to continue
to enjoy our beautiful out-
doors. We can't just stop
and be scared."
DeQuattro said, "The
challenge is that we do not
have an imminent threat.
Pollutants ... have to travel
450 miles to arrive. What it
looks like when it arrives,
we do not know that."

Members of two Upper

Monroe County at a 6:30 p.m.
session today in Tavernier.
The Tavernier Com-


victed LaTorre on April 29,
2008, and Circuit Court
Judge Luis Garcia sentenced
him to three and a half years
in prison that June. LaTorre
was released from jail pend-
ing his appeals arid has yet
to serve one day of his
prison sentence.
His attorneys withdrew
from the case following the
conviction and he's spent the
two years since unsuccess-
fully trying to get a public
defender appointed. Former
federal magistrate Hugh
Morgan represented LaTorre
pro bono in that effort.
"He's been trying to get
the public defender appoint-
ed for him on appeal. We
opposed him being appoint-
ed a public defender. He's
out on a $75,000 bond and
used private counsel on his
case previously," said
Manny Madruga, an assis-

The half-day conference is
to conclude with a panel dis-

the county. The dialogue will
explore the National

2006, LaTorre was .driving
southbound in the north-
bound lane ot U.S. I at mile

driving north in the proper
lane and the cars collided

Bowman was removed
from the car by the Jaws of

Britain: An example

how not to govern

Our founding fathers got it
right when they devised the
way we elect our leaders

Over the weekend, tea-bag conservatives in
Utah - already a bright red conservative state -I
rejoiced at ousting conservative Republican Sen.
Robert Bennett.
At virtually the same time, Britain's Labor Party
leader Gordon Brown announced he'll step down
as prime minister in hopes Labor and-the Liberal
Democrats can form a coalition government.
Both events represent a season of political
unrest and an object lesson in the wisdom of our
forefathers who rejected the idea that splinter poli-
tics and splinter parties are a good way to govern.
The impasse in Britain was caused when no
leader among the three major parties won enough
seats in Parliament to form a government.
James Madison, a Virginia delegate to the
Confederation Congress, argued brilliantly in 1787
against the pitfalls of a political system where
"majority" factions force their will on the gov-
erned.
That lesson is playing out in Britain this week as
the Conservatives, Labor and Liberal Democrats
all jockey for a plurality and enough MPs (mem-
bers of Parliament) to form a coalition government.
In this country, whether you like the two-party
system or not, it's proven far more flexible over the
past 200-plus years than anything seen in any other
representative democracy.
That's because American voters get a clear up or
down vote on elected representatives they send to
Washington, D.C., to do the people's work. Third-
party candidacies have never made much of an
inroad on national scale, thus avoiding the splin-
ter politics of countries like Britain, France and
Italy.
: But when splinter parties or narrow, issue-driv-
en candidates enter the picture in American poli-
tics, things get lost in posturing, rhetoric and
worse.
I That's happening more of late as extremists on
both the far left and far right engage in scorched-
earth politics instead of finding the best solutions
serving the largest number of people.
President Obama's nomination Monday of
Solicitor. General Elena Kagan for a Supreme
Court seat has already triggered outrage on the left
because Kagan is perceived by some to be not "lib-
eral enough."
Watching the liberal left attack Kagan and see-
ing how the radical right took down Bennett in
Utah, it's not hard to predict where this growing
divisiveness leads.
To ideologues on both the left and the right, we
offer the wisdom of the founding fathers, including
Madison, who authored Federalist Paper No. 10:
"Among the numerous advantages promised by a
vell-constructed union, none deserves to be more
accurately developed than its tendency to break
and control the violence of faction."


LETTERS THE DTR

Thank nurses for a job well done
A hospital is much more than a place to go for help or to
heal; it is an. integral part of the community that fosters
health and represents hope. From providing exceptional
care and comfort to the sick to welcoming new life into the
world, Lower Keys Medical Center is central to a healthy
and thriving community.
Words cannot express the important role that all of our
associates play in the provision of health-care services at
Lower Keys. Medical Center. Each associate is integral to
the success of this hospital, the achievement of our mission
and overall, our commitment to patients, excellence and the
community.
During the first few weeks in May each year, hospitals in
the United States recognize and celebrate two very impor-
tant weeks. The first is National Nurses Week from May 6-
12 with the 2010 theme "Caring Today for a Healthier
Tomorrow," and National Hospital Week from May 9-15
with the 2010 theme "Celebrating Health, Hope and
Healing." These celebrations are a way that health-care
workers are recognized; however, no amount of recognition
could ever truly demonstrate the caring, hard work and,
sometimes, sacrifice of many health-care professionals.
We are extremely proud of each associate and we recog-
nize the important roles they play in extending a sense of
trust to our patients and our island community. Our hospital
associates strive every single day of the year to exceed your
expectations and offer our patients the highest level of
patient care. Please join me in thanking them for a job well
done.

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR


Treat foreigners equally
Our family is involved in many
facets of the Middle Keys - business,
public service and life in general.
We promote the area businesses as
much as we can as we come in contact
with visitors from all over the United
States and the world. Several of our
business contacts (hotels, motels and
rental property management) rely on
foreign visitors to supplement their
lodging or rental income.
It has come to my attention that
some of the foreign visitors have

Let's vote on drilling
With the massive and ongoing oil spill-
in the Gulf of Mexico spewing millions of
gallons into the nation's marine waters,
now is the time for our elected govern-
ment to allow us, the citizens of the state,
to decide whether we want to allow oil
and gas exploration in our state waters.
Our state waters stretch from our
beaches to three miles out in the Atlantic
and nine miles out into the Gulf. I am
hopeful Gov. Charlie Crist will soon call
a special session and that the Legislature
will pass a joint resolution to put this issue
on the November ballot. Allow us the
opportunity to amend the state Consti-
tution and stop any chance of this ever
happening right next to our shoreline.
I can think of no more crucial issue to
Florida's economy and ecology. We rely
on tourism and the trademark of white
sandy beaches to create and retain jobs. If
the ongoing spill had happened right off
Naples, Jacksonville, Tampa or Miami,
our entire economy would take a hit that
would last years. It is the last thing we
need to have to worry about. If an amend-
ment passes, oil drilling would continue
in the Gulf, just not right next to Florida.
Where the massive spill south of
Pensacola will end up, and which com-
munities will have to pay the price, we
do not yet fully know. But citizens
should be allowed to make their opinions
known in November. This is an issue that
supersedes Republican, Democratic or
independent partisan politics. It is an
issue about our future. Let us vote.

Mistakes happen
Reader Marc Dubin writes that the
Gulf of Mexico oil spill is a complete
disaster. While I certainly can't argue
that point, I would like to address
some of his points.
Mr. Dubin would have written a nice
letter, hard to argue with, if he hadn't let
his personal political leanings interfere
with his reason. His opinions were sorely
biased the instant he asserted the names of
Dick Chaney and Haliburton. I suppose
that in Mr. Dubin's mind, George Bush
had this in his master plan to destroy the
Gulf coast. Pitiful, to say the least.
PleaSe tell us all just what things on


Dog park brings tourists
We recently camped at Curry
Hammock State Park for 10 days.
There were 12 people and seven dogs.
We wanted to thank whomever for
the dog park that is adjacent to the
Rotary Children's Park in Marathon.'
The dogs enjoyed it immensely, which
resulted in the people having a great
time in your community.
We swam, biked, snorkeled, visited
the Dolphin Research Center, the
Turtle Hospital and the Marathon
Wild Bird Center, and ate out three
times. We'll be back and the dog park
is a big part of the reason.

Sheriff cares
In case you were wondering, the
board, teachers and children of the
Grace Jones Day Care Center think we
have the best sheriff in the nation.
Last month, Sheriff Bob Peryam pres-
ided over the annual grant awards made to
nonprofits from the Sheriff's Office's
Share Assets Forfeiture Fund. While
dozens of very effective nonprofit organi-
zations came away with critically needed
funds for their respective missions, our dis-
advantaged and hungry children at Grace
Jones came out with one of the top awards.

patronized restaurants we have recom-
mended during their stay and these
places add as much as 18 percent gratu-
ity to a foreign customer's tab.
Is this going to promote your busi-
ness? I think not, because I won't be
sending any more foreign visitors your
way unless you revisit this policy.
First of all, a tip is not guaranteed
from anyone. Having been in the busi-
ness, I always thought my service and
my staff's service was impeccable, but
not all people saw it that way. Tips are
part of the business, and sometimes


they are not what one would expect.
I am personally offended that any-
one would add even the phase "gratu-
ity not included" to a bill, as if we did
not know.
Granted, foreign customs may be dif-
ferent, but education is the key if you
want to promote your business and keep
foreign tourists coming back to your busi-
ness. These visitors don't live in a vacu-
um. Treat them like you would treat any-
one else. The results might surprise you.

County. Our $7,750 grant award will be
used 100 percent for the Grace Jones
Backpacks 4 Kids Program. In 2010-11,
the Back Packs 4 Kids program will again'
be an incredibly effective approach for
directly addressing severe nutritional
deficiencies faced by 135-plus children in
Marathon who are the poorest' and most
likely to be experiencing chronic hunger.
Each Friday, these children are pro-
vided a backpack with several pounds
of child-friendly, nutritious food for
their personal consumption over week-
ends and holidays. This food is shared
by hungry siblings in the household. In
these known cases, extra food is pro-
vided in the backpack..
Sadly, the sense of security from hold-
ing a job is absent for hundreds of people
in Monroe County. Too many Monroe
employees - many of them in service,
construction, fishing or tourist-based jobs
that are essential to the local economy -
are unemployed. Some are working full-
time, even at two jobs, only to find they
can barely support their families. Monroe
County today has far too many people
who are decidedly not living in paradise.
Grace Jones thinks it's pretty dam
cool that our sheriff, his staff and the
hardworking volunteer board that
determined the grants understand all of
this and do their part to help.

is how it treats those in the dawn of life

HOME IMPROVEMENT


House OKs 'Caulkers' bill


Proposal would
offer rebates for
energy upgrades

The Associated Press

Homeowners could col-
lect thousands of dollars in
Cash for Caulkers rebates
for renovating their homes
with better insulation and
energy-saving windows and
doors under a new economic
stimulus bill the U.S. House
passed late last week.
The Home Star bill,
passed 246-161, would
authorize $5.7 billion over
two years for a program that
supporters - mostly
Democrats - said would
have the added benefits of
invigorating the slumping


construction industry and
making the earth a little
cleaner.
"Home Star is that solid
investment that's going to
achieve that hat trick of
energy savings for the
homeowner, of moving.
toward a cleaner environ-
ment and of creating jobs
here at home," said bill
sponsor Peter Welch, D-Vt.
Republicans overwhelm-
ingly opposed the bill, and
they were able to attach a
condition that it would be
terminated if Democrats do
not come up with a way to
pay for it.
The measure has come to
be dubbed Cash for
Caulkers, a takeoff on the
popular 2009 Cash for
Clunkers that rewarded peo-
ple for replacing gas-guz-


zling vehicles with more
fuel-efficient models. 1
President Barack Obama
has promoted the bill, which
needs Senate approval.
The initiative is separate
from an energy tax credit of
up to $1,500 that was includ-
ed in last year's economic
stimulus act. That credit for
energy efficiency improve-
ments runs through the end
of this year.
Supporters estimate that
3 million households would
make use of. the new pro-
gram, saving $9.2 billion in
energy costs over a 10-year
period. They said it would
create 168,000 jobs, mainly
in the recession-hit construc-'
tion industry.
There are two types of
consumer initiatives for
retrofitting homes with ener-


gy-efficient models:
* Under the Silver Star
program", homeowners
would get rebates of
between $1,000 and $1,500
for each improvement
installed, or $250 per appli-
ance, with a benefit not
exceeding $3,000.
* Under the Gold Star
program, consumers would
be eligible for $3,000 when
they conduct whole-house
energy analyses and install
technology that improves
their home energy efficiency
by 20 percent. They could
receive an additional $1,000
rebate for each additional 5
percent improvement, to a
maximum of $8,000.
Neither program's
rebates could exceed 50 per-
cent of the total project cost.

Gastroenterologist
offers new treatment
Mariners Hospital says
gastroenterologist Dr, Neal
E. Rakov has introduced the


use of radiofrequency abla-
tion to treat Barrett's esoph-
agus to the Florida Keys.
Barrett's esophagus is a
complication caused by
long-term gastroesophageal
reflux disease. The backing
up of stomach' contents
(reflux) may irritate the
esophagus and, over time,
cause Barrett's esophagus in
which the cells. lining the
lower part of the esophagus
have changed or have been
replaced with abnormal cells
that could lead to cancer of
the esophagus.
Rakov performed his first
radiofrequency ablation -
an endoscopic procedure
involving targeted thermal
energy - a few months ago.
The procedure was recently
approved by the Food and
Drug Administration. The
minimally invasive treatment
is an outpatient procedure
that takes about 30 minutes.

Airport group ends effort


Now the chamber
takes the lead
for air service
By RYAN McCARTHY
rmccarthy@keynoter.com

It's now up to the Greater
Marathon Chamber of Com-
merce to lure commercial air
service 'to the Middle Keys.
A community effort
begun in 2007 is closing
shop on Monday and turning
over its remaining funds to
the chamber.
The Marathon Com-
munity Air Service Initiative
raised more than $170,000
from businesses and others to
help lure Delta Airlines to
Florida Keys Marathon
Airport in 2007 with a rev-
enue guarantee. That's not
counting another $118,000 in
pledges never received.
But ,Delta, which flew
between Marathon and
Atlanta, bowed out after only
six months and the bulk of
the money - $125,000,
along with another $125,000
from the county - was used
to fund a 2009 trial run for
Continental Connection-
provider Cape Air. That serv-
ice, to Fort Myers, met with

moderate success but funding
dried up for 2010 and Cape
Air didn't return.
Marathon resident David
Rice, a candidate for the
District 4 Monroe County
Commission seat this fall,
spearheaded the fundraising
initiative. He said the group
will turn over just more than
$33,000 to the chamber.
"We have that amount left
and frankly, the chamber has
done very good things with
economic development,"
Rice said.
Chamber Chief Executive
Officer Daniel Samess told
the Keynoter the chamber
will entertain offers and
inquiries from this point for-
ward from interested airlines
- if any step forward.
"The money will go in a
'separate account and will be
used to bring back commercial
air service to the airport. If it's
a good fit and helps our com-
munity and tourism, then we'll
put the money to use," he said.
The chamber's been very
active lately, joining forces
with the city of Marathon to
work on economic develop-
ment for the Middle Keys.

ment of Marathon and the

we will have these funds to
use for such purposes. We are
honored that the Marathon
Airport Initiative Group is
confident in our ability to uti-
lize and manage these funds
appropriately and has the
confidence in the [chamber]
to move forward with eventu-
ally re-establishing commer-
cial air service at Marathon
Airport," Samess said.
Commercial air service to
the Middle Keys has been
almost nonexistent for a
decade.
"That's up to the commit-
ment of the community. I
think [commercial air service
is] viable, but it's up to the
community. If you're willing
to drive to Miami or Fort
Lauderdale for a lower fare,
you're not going to have air
service. It's [the same with]
Marathon or any other com-
munity," county Airports
Director Peter Horton said.
Rice said he believes
commercial air service can
work in Marathon.
"They can use [the
money] as an advantage next
time we take a look at that
issue in Marathon, which will
probably be when the econo-
my recovers," he said.

The real hot action right now is the tarpon fihsing


From Fishing, 1B

Bobby Barr. Rigged ballyhoo
are the b1aits of i-, ice, but
the dolphin will also take a
wide variety of trolled lures.
Mixed with the dolphin
are wahoo and some very
nice blackfin tuna. The tuna
- both blackfin and skipjack
- are also out at the humps.
Trolling in the early morning
or late evening, or butterfly
jigging throughout the day,
provides the best results.
On the reef and wrecks, the
grouper bite remains strong,
although there are more
grouper than anglers winning
the tug of war these days.
Apparently, they refined their
escape tactics during their four-
month furlough from harvest.
The best baits are large live
grunts, blue runners or pinfish.
Trolling deep-running
plugs on the reef will also
work well for the grouper,
especially with the ultra-clean
waters we experienced this
past week. These fish will go a
surprisingly long way to attack
the big diving plugs. The key
to prevent losing them is to
keep the boat moving forward
while fighting the fish so it
doesn't get the chance to dive
into the reef and cut you off.
Amberjack in the 25- to
40-pound class are also abun-
dant on the reefs and wrecks.
A large AJ slurping down his
snapper offerings has sur-
prised more than one yellow-
tail angler. Perhaps not the
target species, the amberjack
nevertheless provides quite
the fight on light tackle.
The yellowtail action on
the reef just gets better and
better, with larger fish show-
ing in increasing numbers.
Light line, small hooks and
mega amounts of chum are
essential to 'tailing success.
There are some rather nice
mangrove snapper lingering
among the yellowtails. Some
are every bit of five pounds. A
small live pinfish or pilchard
will definitely attract some
attention from these snaggle-
tooth cousins of the yellowtail.
Night fishing for man-
groves is'proving to be good,
as well. It's a little easier to
land these fish in the darkness,
as you can get away with heav-
ier tackle. Fifteen- to 20-pound


I


Capt.Jimmy Griffith helped Mike Michetti and his daughter to some nice-size permit the past week.


spinning rods are the way to go
and just about any live or dead
bait will work. Be sure to keep
your lighting to a minimum so
as not to spook the fish.
The gulf and bay waters are
holding good numbers of man-
grove snapper and grouper, and
there are more than enough
permit to go around. For the
snapper and grouper, all the
baits and techniques I've cov-
ered will work, but for the per-
mit, you will need crabs for
bait. Remember, the permit are
spawning, so please practice
catch-and-release with them.
I've seen a number of pic-
tures of tarpon cut in half by
sharks the past few days. The
shallower grass flat areas and
the wrecks are holding tons
of lemons and blacktips.
Catch-and-release shark
fishing is an excellent option
when the winds prevent you
from heading offshore or to the
reef. Be cautious when han-
dling the sharks. Never take
them out of the water. Always
use a de-hooker to remove the
hook, if possible. If not, cut the
wire as close to the hook as
you can without endangering
yourself and wave goodbye as
the shark swims away to fight
another day.


This week's best
Here's what the charter
captains from Marathon to
Key West have been catching
this week.
Capt. Jimmy Griffith, of
Angler Management Charters
out of the Island Fish Co., put
the Michetti family on the
permit action oceanside off
Marathon.
Ron Schmidt, Bobby Hey-
na and Kyle Berwick, from
Palm City, had a fun day fish-
ing offshore with Capt. Mike
Vorkapic and mate Dave Heb-
erholz oh the Pip's 36 out of
Captain Pip's Marina and
Hideaway in Marathon. They
caught a nice 23-pound dol-
phin plus some schoolies in
1,100 feet of water.
Mike Anderson and his
friends, from Lima, Ohio,
went tarpon fishing 'vith Capt.
Bob Brown of Sundance
Sport Fishing out of the 7
Mile Marina. They hooked
three and landed two, both 90-
plus pounds.
John Rokita and his gang
from Philly went offshore for
a half day with Brown and
caught a few nice schoolie
dolphin. They released most,
but kept enough to have 'for
lunch at Fat Buoyz, where


the chefs did an awesome job
preparing the fish blackened.
Brown fished the sixth
annual Tarponian Tournament
and caught and released two
tarpon each night. That was
enough to help a couple of
teams pocket some cash, but
one fish shy of capturing third
place, along with a little
pocket-lining, for the captain.
Capt. Jeff Knapp and his
cohort Howard Williams fish-
ed with Capt. Dave Schugar of
Sweet 'Enuf Charters out of
Castaway Restaurant in Mara-
thon. They had nonstop group-
er action - lost about 15 fish
in the structure - but manag-
ed to bring home a nice black.
On other trips, Schugar
fished John and Ashley from
Marathon and got hogfish,
large mangrove snapper, yel-
lowtail and a 15-pound blhck
grouper. The Jorgenson
group from Melbourne, Fla.,
caught a limit of jumbo yel-
lowtails and dropped a few
times to get some amberjack,
Reporting , for Captain
Hook's Marina and Dive Cen-
ter, James Simcic says there
are lots of dolphin coming
back to the dock along with
some cobia. Their charter cap-
tains are averaging one to three


tarpon landings every evening
and declare the gulf and bay
are chock full of sharks.
Simcic reports the spear
divers are returning with nice
numbers of grouper, hogfish
and mangrove snapper.
Tarpon have been the main
object of anglers fishing with
Capt. Jack Teague of Finatic
Charters in the Lower Keys
and Key West area. Key West
Harbor produced, hookups on
live pinfish early in the week
when it was too windy to fish
the Atlantic oceanside flats.
After enjoyifig a couple of
tarpon in the harbor with
Teague, anglers Alfonso "Tito"
Lopez from Miami and his fish-
ing partner, Hermes from Col-
ombia, decided to experience
sight fishing on the Calda banks
flats. Hermes hooked what may
be a world-record blacktip
shark, while Tito captured the
memories in photographs.
Teague reports tarpon were
eating flies and pinfish well in
the Lower Keys backcountry
near Big Pine. After the wind
lay down, fly anglers had
numerous opportunities on the
Atlantic side flats and basins.
The tarpon bite was red-
hot for Capt. Moe Mottice of
Reel Lucky Charters out of


Key West. He caught several
up to 130 pounds on 20-
pound test usmig shrimp trash
as bait. Along with the tar-
pon, his anglers caught man-
grove snapper, cero and
Spanish mackerel and a vari-
ety of sharks that jump and
entertain equal to the tarpon.
The Reel Lucky catch of the
week goes to Diana Van-
derwalt, who landed a monster
tarpon while fishing with her
dad. The duo was visiting from
London, and they also enjoyed
some yellowtailing.
Sean Hull did two days of
offshore fishing with Capt. Mar-
lin Scott aboard the Reel Deal
out of the Key West Harbour
Yacht Club. He had his first
experience catching dolphin on
a fly rod. Snowy grouper, gray
tilefish and rosefish added color
to the fish box. They had a lit
marlin under a floater. Although
it wouldn't commit, it provided
an amazing show..

To the winners
A couple of quick shout-
outs to tournament winners
last weekend:
Capt. James Platt Jr. guided
Suzy Moore to six fish and first
place in the angler division of
the Marathon International
Tarpon Tournament. Capt.
Kevin Goodwin captured first
place in the captains' division.
His anglers, Col. Pete Knaup
and John Kis, caught and
released five tarpon. -
And Fishing with Capt.
Marty Lewis aboard the
Main Attraction, Bruce
Boring caught a 37.6-pound
dolphin for top honors in the
Habitat for Humanity
Mother's Day Dolphin
Tournament.
As always, the waters of
the Florida Keys offer a
multitude of fishing oppor-
tunities so get out there and
enjoy it. If you have a report
you'd like to contribute,
please send us an e-mail.

ing hundreds of Everglades
restoration supporters in Wash-
ington, D.C., on May 19 and
20 for the first-ever'America's
Everglades Summit, hosted by
the Palmetto Bay-based Ever-
glades Foundation and its partners.
. Brokaw will moderate the
kickoff event, a multi-media
roundtable discussion featur-
ing top government officials
from Washington and Talla-
hassee. It will highlight the
ecological and economic
benefits associated with the
protection and restoration of
America's Everglades. Parti-
cipants include:
* Eric Buermann, chairman,
South Florida Water Manage-
ment District governing board.
* Jo-Ellen Darcy, assis-
tant secretary 'of the U.S.
Army (Civil Works).
* Gary Guzy, deputy direq-

"Our message to policy
makers will be clear: Main-
taining support for Everglades
restoration has never been
more important," said Kirk
Fordham, chief executive offi-
cer of the Everglades Found-
ation. "It is critical that we
build on recently launched res-
toration projects to support con-
tinued funding in Congress for
the advancement of this eco-
system restoration initiative."
The Everglades Found-
ation will also distribute pre-
liminary results from a newly
commissioned study that will
attempt to quantify the eco-
nomic benefits of Everglades
restoration.

The Gulf Oil Spill Response.


How to find out more. Where to find help. How to volunteer.


Since the tragic accident on Transocean's Deepwater
Horizon rig first occurred, BP has done and continues
to do everything possible to respond to the situation.
BP has taken full responsibility for dealing with the spill,
and is mobilizing its full resources to fight against it in
the Gulf of Mexico.


More than 2,500 of BP's operational and technical
personnel from around the world are working with
many federal, state and local government agencies, local
communities and industry experts. Using hundreds of
vessels, they are involved in efforts to protect the shore
of the Gulf coast, to contain the spill offshore, and to stem
the flow of oil from the sub-sea well. Staging posts to
help protect the shoreline are in operation at six critical
areas, supported by command posts in Houma, Louisiana;
Mobile, Alabama; and St. Petersburg, Florida. Thousands
of volunteers are being trained to help with the cleanup.


We are grateful for the support of the many volunteers,
federal, state, and local government officials, and
emergency responders. We are determined to leave
nothing undone in the effort to stop the flow and
minimize any potential impact.







� 2010 BP Products North America Inc.


For current information on the spill and response plan,
please go to the following websites:


www.bp.com/gulfofmexicoresponse


www.deepwaterhorizonresponse.com


For assistance or information, please call the following
24/7 hotlines:


To report oil on the shoreline: (866) 448-5816


To report impacted wildlife: (866) 557-1401


To make spill-related claims: (800) 440-0858
