Tar balls found




on Keys beaches


By KEVIN WADLOW
Senior Staff Writer
kwadlow@keynoter.com
Tar balls discovered on a
Key West beach Monday
sent federal oil-spill respon-
ders scrambling.
The origin of the 20 tar
balls, measuring 3 inches to 8
inches, has not definitively
been traced to the ongoing,
Deepwater Horizon oil spill
in the northern Gulf of
Mexico - but the tar balls
show what residents probably
can expect if the spill oil
reaches the Keys, say experts.
They were found at Fort
Zachary Taylor State Park.
"Tar balls washing ashore
in the Florida Keys are an
example of what might hap-
pen should oil [from the spill]
become entrained in the
Loop Current," Jane


Testing's under way to determine
if they came from Gulf oil spill


Lubchenco, top administrator
of the National Oceanic and
Atmospheric Administration,
said in a national press con-
ference Tuesday. "This is a
scenario we have been antic-
ipating and preparing for."
The' Key West tar balls
were flown to a Connecticut
laboratory to see if they can
be matched to the BP-
Deepwater Horizon oil spill.
Other tar balls were report-
edly found on Big Pine Key,
Loggerhead Key in the Dry
Tortugas and Smathers
Beach in Key West.
While federal officials
said Tuesday the main spill
apparently is "dozens of
miles" from the primary
Loop Current, other


oceanographers disagree.
"The slick may reach the
Middle Keys in the Florida
Straits by May 26," said a
Monday report from the
College of Marine Sciences
at the University of South
Florida.
"We feel fairly confident
[spill oil] has reached the
Loop Current," said Marine
Sciences Dean Bill Hogarth
in a USF statement.
Hogarth told the
Associated Press, ""This is a
very sensitive area. We are
concerned with what hap-
pens in the Florida Keys."
Mitchell Roffer, an
oceanographer who runs
Roffer's Ocean Fishing
Forecasting Service, believes


at least a portion of the oil
already is on the way to the
Keys.
Differences over the spill
location in regard to the cur-
rent "are a matter of seman-
tics," Roffer told the
Keynoter. "It's either in the
Loop Current or riding along
the edge. Without splitting
hairs, it's looking pretty bad."
"It will reach your neigh-
borhood in the Keys," USF
staff oceanographer Chuanmin
Hu' said. "It's being pulled
along like in a river current.
We've seen this in previous
cases. Mud from the
Mississippi River has been
-pulled through the Florida
Straits all the way to Georgia."
Gwen Keenan, deputy
incident commander for the
state of Florida, told the

Ownership is
changing to
two brothers
By KEVIN WADLOW
Senior Staff Writer
kwadlow@keynoter.com
The doors to the
Plantation Key Convalescent
Center were locked Friday
after the facility's 89 resi-
dents moved elsewhere.
"Most of them are in
Homestead" care facilities,
Robert Lauer, administrator of
the Plantation Key center, said
Tuesday. "A few are in Miami.
A few people went home."
Lauer said a contract for
the sale of the Plantation Key
Convalescent Center is
expected to be finalized


today.' That would clear the
way for the new owners to
begin renovations in antici-
pation of reopening the High
Point Road facility before the
end of the year, he said.
"It will take three months
at a minimum, six months at
the maximum," Lauer said.
A majority of the dis-
placed residents "want to
come back," Lauer said.
The state's Agency for
Health Care Administration
halted new admissions to the
Plantation Key Convalescent
Center on April 2, citing
inspections "that identified
conditions that posed an
immediate threat to the
health and safety of the resi-
dents. Those conditions

OIL SPILL THREAT


Scientist: Coral will be OK


Shinn: Shore
would take brunt
of the damage
By KEVIN WADLOW
Senior Staff Writer
kwadlow@keynoter.com
Florida Keys corals likely
can survive limited exposure
to oil from the Deepwater
Horizon spill, says one of the
foremost experts on the
Keys reef system.
"I'm not concerned about
the corals," said Eugene


Shinn, a scientist who
worked on Keys and South
Florida corals extensively
during a 31-year career with
the U.S. Geological Survey.
"If the oil reaches the Keys,
it probably will be in the form
of tar balls that will float right
over the reef," Shinn told the
Keynoter this week.
"There could be prob-
lems with turtles and sea
birds, in the mangroves and
on the beaches," he said. "Be
prepared for one heck of a
mess at the shoreline before
this is over."
Shinn said he expects that


"by the time the spilled oil
reaches the Florida Keys,"
the most toxic components
. of the spill "will have evapo-
rated. Bacterial breakdown
will have reduced the oil to a
less toxic gooey mess that
can foul beaches, man-
groves, and affect sea birds."
In the early 1970s, Shinn
experimented with crude
oil's effect on corals. In a
local project near Tavernier,
he used plastic domes and
plastic bags to hold oil in
contact with living star coral
and staghorn coral in 15 feet
of water.


To his own surprise, he
recounted in a written sum-
mary: "Corals retracted their
polyps but the oil would not
stick to the coral because of
its mucus. When I removed
the oil, there was no oil on
the coral. Fifteen days later
the corals -were living and
appeared normal."
He said he also dipped
staghorn coral into samples
of natural crude oil from
Louisiana. "1 took it out after
two hours, and [the coral]
continued to grow."

the information in this
inflammatory way reveals
a painstaking effort behind
a premeditated ' tactical
decision. It was construed
to shock and inflame the
public...
"It could only have been
compelled by the motive to
appeal to the public's bias,
passion and prejudice
against the apparently
wealthy, and damage Ms.
Acevedo's character in the
eyes of the jury."
"She doesn't want the
public to be informed of
the facts because they're
hard to defend against,"
Wilson said.
Docherty also takes
exception to Wilson solic-
iting input from School
Board members about
punishment if Acevedo is
convicted. Wilson says
board members, as victims
of the alleged crimes,
should have input.
Docherty wrote: "This is
faulty reasoning; under
Wilson's proposed theory
of assigning victim's rights,
every taxpaying citizen in
the Monroe County School
District 'is a victim of
Monique Acevedo - and
consequently has a conflict
of interest jn participating
in her trial. This would prej-
udicially taint the whole
pool of potential jurors."
"She's had a year to
write- this motion," Ward
said. "She's been waiting
for the time when we're
close to going to court and
she drops this motion.
Clearly, I think that's an eth-
ical violation. I think she's
misled the court and now is
misleading the public."
Ward has a standing
offer of 10 years in prison
if Acevedo pleads guilty
and pays restitution.
"The real issue is they
don't like that 10 years and
they want a new state
attorney's office so they
can get down to five and
work their way down from
there," Ward said. "That's
just not going to happen.
They can try to get me off
the case but I don't think
that's going to happen."

reporting of accidents, neg-
lect and abuse." The control-
ling owner is Bob Becht of
Tennessee.
When problems cited in
the April 2 report were not
corrected by April 21, the
agency moved to terminate
the agreement that provides
Medicare and Medicaid pay-
ments. Since most of the res-
idents received funding from
those programs, the 120-bed
home could not stay open
under the former owners.
The Agency for Health
Care Administration must
approve the ownership trans-
fer, agency spokeswoman
Shelisha Durde said. The


application has not been
received by the ACHA.
The new owner, a compa-
ny headed by brothers Ralph
Stacey and Robert Stacey,
owns the Victoria Manor
Nursing Home and
Rehabilitation Center, a 264-
bed facility in Miami where
some of the Plantation Key
residents were moved, Lauer
said. Other care centers in
South Florida contacted
Plantation Key to let their
administrators know how
many beds were available.
The Plantation Key
Convalescent Center was the
last remaining nursing home
in Monroe County, although
there are plans to reopen a
Stock Island facility as the


Key West Health and
Rehabilitation Center.
"This [Key West] facility
is currently in inactive status
and proceeding with renova-
tions," Durden said.
The family-owned firm
taking over the Plantation
Key Convalescent Center
"wants to rehire the majori-
ty" of the 150 employees
who worked there until this
week, Lauer said.
Renovations to the build-
ings likely will include "new
furniture and flooring," Lauer
said. "I know they want to do
some remodeling, but to what
extent, I can't say."
Lauer said he expects to
remain at PKCC through the
closure and reopening.

McCullah said he can't

attorney, Hal Schuhmacher,
did not return calls for com-
ment by press time.
"1I expect another month
or two before we're at a con-

know what choice they'll
make. There's always a pos-

McCullah said.

$21,043 in foundation dona-
tions, which were made in
exchange for 18 overnight
stays on the island. He
deposited the money into his
own bank account via
PayPal.
The grand theft charge
stems from a $9,000 deposit

OIL SPILL THPL.iA,


Haz-mat training starts


Keys college,
BP offering
the courses

By PAMELA J. SUAREZ
Keynoter Contributor

Whether the tar balls
found on Keys beaches this
week were the result of the
Deepwater Horizon spill or
not, officials remind the pub-
lic that tar balls and oil in the
water and onshore are haz-
ardous.
Because contact with these
substances can cause serious
health problems including
skin, eye and lung irritation,
and because collecting and
disposing of them incorrectly
may cause further damage to
an already fragile environ-
ment, handling them safely
requires special training.
There are two kinds of
classes for those who want to
help with the spill cleanup if
it's needed here, and plans
are being made to offer the
courses throughout the Keys
and, in some cases, online.
The first is a four-hour
course that volunteers must


take in order to safely handle
tar balls, tar mats and oil
sheen. BP has offered these
classes for free in the Gulf
coast region, but has yet to
offer them in Monroe County.
The other is an intensive
three-day session called 24-
Hour OSHA Hazardous Waste
Operations and Emergency
Response Standard Technician
training, or HAZWOPER. The
course is designed "for per-
sons who respond to a haz-
ardous materials incident for
the purpose of stopping,, con-
taining, controlling and clean-
ing up the release ... and for
persons performing limited
tasks at an uncontrolled haz-
ardous waste site and who are
unlikely to be exposed above
permissible exposure limits."
A HAZWOPER course
commences today at Florida
Keys Community College's
Key West campus, and
another is scheduled to begin
on Monday. Tuition is $575.
More training is being
coordinated, according to
Dan Robey, manager of the
information Web site
www.KeysSpill.com. The
push is on for charter and
dive captains, shrimpers,


commercial fishermen and
others with big boats to get
certified through the HAZ-
WOPER course immediately:
HAZWOPER certifica-
tion is required for anyone
wishing to become a paid
cleanup contractor or to be
involved in containment
boom deployment.
"If you're not certified,
you can't participate in the
cleanup and boom deploy-
ment, period. They'll turn you
away," Robey said. "The
problem on the Gulf coast was
that not enough people were
certified and ready to roll
from Day 1. We don't want
that to happen in the Keys."
Robey said the U.S. Coast
Guard intends to use
www.KeysSpill.com as the
point of contact for boom
deployment, so he hopes
everyone with big boats will
sign on as volunteers so
they'll be notified of training
and work opportunities.
In the meantime, anyone
not trained who sees oil or tar

Tests under way


From Tar, 1 A

Keynoter, "BP is looking at
the need to expand its
efforts to the Florida Keys.
They are waiting for confir-
mation on the origin of
those tar balls before mak-
ing a decision. They are
considering it because they
want to respond appropri-
ately."
"The government and
BP are not prepared for
this" Karl Lessard, presi-
dent of the Florida Keys
Commercial Fishermen's
Association, said after


attending a Monday brief-
ing with U.S. Rep. Ileana
Ros-Lehtinen.
"From what I can see,
fishermen in the Florida
Keys could suffer a major
impact," Lessard said.
"This has the potential to
get into the mangroves, the
place where most life in the
sea starts."
State Rep. Ron Saunders
Tuesday called for Monroe
County to be added to the
Florida coastal counties
already under an emergency
declaration.


Shinn: Coral OK


From Coral, 1 A

He learned a researcher
in Australia used a garden
sprayer to coat corals
exposed at low tide with oil
"every day for several days.
His results were similar to
mine."
Adult reef fish that swim
below floating oil also do
not appear to suffer from
limited exposure, he said.
In the wake of the BP oil
spill, Shinn wrote to fellow
coral researchers, "The les-
son from this and other
research was that if and
when the oil from this spill
reaches the Florida Keys,
the damage will be limited
mainly to mangrove shore-
line habitats, sea birds, and
beaches. Dive-boat opera-
tions will likely be affected,
but it will not harm corals
or reef fish."
Shinn wrote in his report,
"The best teacher is history.
The Keys and the East Coast
of the U.S. were often
awash in oil from torpedoed
tankers during [World War
II1] and there have been


numerous tanker spills and
oil from bilge cleaning over
the past 50 years with no
documented impact to
Florida's coral reefs."
However, Shinn warned
that corals cannot be,
exposed to chemical disper-
sants like those now being
used at record levels in the
northern Gulf of Mexico.
"Under no circum-
stances should dispersants
be used on an oil slick in the
vicinity of a coral reef,"
Shinn said. "Dispersants
soluabilize the oil and allow
it dissolve in the water and
come in direct contact with
coral and fish.
"In addition, oil-contain-
ment booms should not be
deployed in the vicinity of
coral reefs because of pos-
sible entanglement and
physical destruction. The
history of oil spills is that
cleanup efforts - such as
use of live steam, solvents
and digging - often do
more damage than the oil."
Shinn now is an associ-
ate professor with the
University of South Florida.

HEALTH CARE


RFPs go out to health firms


Fishermen's
considering
many options

By RYAN MCCARTHY
rmccarthy@keynoter.com

The Fishermen's Hospital
community board is inching
closer to a decision on who'll
be running the Middle Keys
medical center next summer.
The board owns the hospi-
tal and has been charged with
finding a replacement -
potentially - for longtime
manager Health Management
Associates. HMA is interested
in buying the hospital outright.
Realtor Bruce Schmitt
heads up the community
board's options committee.
He. said requests for propos-
als to operate the hospital
were sent out to eight firms:
HMA, Brim Healthcare,
Quorum Health Services,
Tatum Healthcare Manage-
ment Services, Baptist
Health South Florida,
Pioneer Health Services, Mt.
Sinai Medical Center and a
group of Miami-area doctors

He was born Aug. 22,

He served in the U.S. Army

headed up by University of
Miami Hospital cardiologist

The RFPs were sent out
two weeks ago and the board
has yet to receive a response.
They're due by June 1 and
cover a variety of options for
the hospital's future.
Miami-based health-care
consultant Steven Dresnick,
hired by the board in March,
said limiting the number of
possible firms was important
given the time frame it's
dealing with. HMA's contract
ends in July 2011.
"Most of these people
have been down to visit the
hospital on multiple occa-
sions. We thought they were
happy from what they heard
from these people. I don't
think the board was really
prepared to sift through 50
different proposals," he said.
Schmitt agreed and said
narrowing the search to
groups experienced in work-
ing with critical access hospi-
tals was helpful as well.
Fishermen's recently
received the designation,

Don't let oil fear

lead to hysteria

We have good reason to be
concerned but we all need
to keep things in perspective

The tar balls found Monday at Fort Zachary
Taylor State Park in Key West, and others report-
edly found Tuesday at Big Pine Key, Loggerhead
Key in Dry Tortugas National Park and at
Smathers Beach in Key West, certainly are cause
for alarm.
But they are not cause for panic.
Many scientists say it's unlikely the balls came
from the oil slick created when the Deepwater
Horizon oil rig exploded in the Gulf of Mexico off
Louisiana on April 22. We'll know more when the
results of testing come back from the,U.S. Coast
Guard Oil Analysis Laboratory in Groton, Conn.
Our tourism already has taken a hit from the
economic downturn that's plagued all of the coun-
try and some cancellations of hotel rooms and fish-
ing charters have been reported due to the spill.
Elsewhere in the country, some people think
there's oil lapping our shores, or that it's about to.
The last thing we need to do .is add to that confu-
sion before the facts about the tar balls are in.
It's. especially disheartening to hear that 19 per-
cent of the Gulf of Mexico is now closed to fishing
because to some, that sounds like our bayside fish-
ing grounds aren't open. They are, and they're
healthy. There is no danger to Keys seafood.
We applaud the Tourist Development Council
for being proactive and posting spill information
on its Web site - what other tourism board would
do that? - and getting the word out that so far,
we're OK in the Keys. It's something we should all
be doing to ensure our economic engine continues
to run.
A week ago, County Administrator Roman
Gastesi understated the ominous specter of the
-spill's possible impacts on the Keys when he
declared at a special meeting, "There's a very like-
ly chance that nothing will happen to us."
Few believed that when he said it May 18, and
even fewer do now. However, Gastesi was correct
-when he said, "We can't just stop and be scared....
We've got to continue living our lives."
Keys organizations are gearing up to respond to
the expanding oil spill that could eventually threat-
-en our, critical mangrove habitats, and possibly
-juvenile fish populations. We should all consider
-what. we can do to help preserve the environment
-we love.
And we all should let the nation know that our
waters and shores remain pristine and, apparently
so far, untarnished by oil.

Thanks to everyone who helped make the Florida Keys Soc-
iety for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals' spring social such a
spectacular success. Everyone involved with this event - staff,
volunteers, contributors and attendees - helped bring us closer to
'realizing our goal of a new, hurricane-safe animal shelter.
Key to its success was the generosity of Fred and Susan
Cabanas, who hosted the event in their hangar at Key West
International Airport. The untiring work of Georgia Favelli
and Lisa Cowen once again ensured the best silent and live
auctions in Key West. Carmen Rodriguez and Gordy Michael
graciously gave their time to entertain. Space prevents me list-

LETTERS TO TH.-.af E OR


Oil spill needs microbes
Like most of us, I have been watch-
ing closely the news about the Gulf of
Mexico oil-rig disaster that occurred
April 22. Certainly, this incident has
the potential to be an environmental
disaster of huge proportions if not
somehow checked.
It has occurred to me that faced
with a situation of such dramatic pro-
portions and consequences, the
response by our federal and state cri-
sis-management gurus has been lack-
ing. It appears that much of the effort
to date has focused on what to do after
the oil finally reaches the shore.
Certainly cleanup will be needed. But
there is technology existing today
(and it has existed for many years
now) that is not being utilized in miti-
gating the spill. 1 am speaking about
microbes.
Microbes are tiny eating machines.
They are found in one form or the
other in virtually all biological com-
munities. Microbes can be attenuated
to specialize in eating a variety of dif-
ferent substances like sewage, grease,
sludge and oil. Blends of all of these
microbes are, in fact, available right
here in the Florida Keys.
Microbes are environmentally
friendly. They operate by eating the
carbon atoms out of the molecular
chain in substances containing carbon.
They give off water and carbon diox-
ide as byproducts. They are able to tol-
erate both fresh and saltwater environ-
ments. They are voracious eaters and
breeders, able to consume many times
their own size and can reproduce
every 20 minutes. When they run out
of food, they die.
Problem is, they are not motile. To


Carriers come through
We'd like to send a big thank you to
the Marathon post office letter carriers.
May 8 was the 18th annual food
drive by the National Association of
Letter Carriers. Across the nation,
mail carriers encouraged residents to
put nonperishable food at their mail-
boxes,' which was then picked up and
distributed to local food banks and
pantries.
Locally, Marathon collected sever-
al thousand pounds of food that was
transported to the Keys Area Inter-
denominational Resources, or KAIR,
food pantry. This food is so appreciat-
ed by those who receive it.
It is a difficult time for many who
have lost their jobs, had a serious ill-
ness or experienced family separation.
Many on Social Security find it diffi-

Don't block parking spots
I recently witnessed a Marathon
Middle School'parent setting a horri-
ble example for all of the children
waiting to be Vpicked up by their par-
ents or the school buses.
A maroon Honda CRV was blocking a
handicapped parking space and the driv-
er refused to move his vehicle even after
another car pulled up alongside him and
told him the person behind him was try-
ing to get into the handicapped spot and
that his car was blocking it. He argued
with the people in the car and refused to
move. The person trying to park beeped
their horn and waved their handicap-
parking pass out the window, but the per-
son in the maroon Honda CRV still
refused to move his vehicle.
After about five minutes, two children
entered the Honda CRV and the person
driving still refused to move and sat there
for another five minutes blocking the spot
on purpose. The car could have easily
pulled around the parking lot and back in
after letting the disabled person park.
There isn't any excuse for this type of anti-
social and somewhat bizarre behavior.
Please do not block handicapped
parking spots when picking up your chil-
dren from school. It is illegal, sets a very
bad example for the children in our com-
munity and prevents people with disabil-
ities from using our public facilities.

be effective, they have to be brought
to the food, or vice versa. This actual-
ly makes them ideal for use in mitigat-
ing oil spills in water. As waves and
currents keep a washing-machine type
of effect on an oil spill, the microbes
'are constantly being introduced to
new food sources. It's Smorgasbord

Why in the world this technology is
not being exploited in this case is
beyond reason. Instead, our disaster-

feed your family is a great relief dur-

people hope and confidence that they
can get back on their feet.
-May 8 was hot and it was no easy
feat to lug food from each mailbox
back to the post office and then to the
food pantry. The letter carriers did it
willingly and with a generous spirit.
We thank them from the bottom of our
hearts.

Don't develop Wisteria
Here we go again with Wisteria
Island, known to many as Christmas
Tree Island.
In Episode 1, we saw the develop-
ers' invitations to select local officials
to wine and dine themselves in the very
shadow of Wisteria Island, smack-dab
between two fast-tracked votes of the
Key West City Commission designed
to welcome this scraggly island into the
city's fold. Clearly, this was to be the
final retirement swansong for two com-
missioners no longer upon the dais.
In Episode II, we once again have the
developers creating Wisteria Hysteria,
trying to convince people this small
island is some sort of environmental
hazard threatening our protected waters,
with the developers as our divine saviors
swooping in to save the day, all in the
interest of community service.
Now, they come forward in the
name of humanity and environmental
concern, all too willing to swap out
their privately owned too-shallow-to-
do-anything-bay bottom in exchange
for prime navigable waters owned by
the people, all under the premise that
if they keep repeating that it's a good
deal, eventually people will come to
believe it's true. For a subtropical
area, this is quite a snow job.
Having failed miserably the first
time around, we now see the owners
and developers changing their strategy


ly not friendly) and developing
cleanup protocols to be instituted after
the damage has been done. This situa-
tion calls for nature's little eating fac-
tories, microbes.
This spill can be mitigated before it
turns into a nightmare situation. Call
your representatives, BP and the
Federal Emergency Management
Agency and ask why microbes are not
part of the spill mitigation process. I
can tell you they will certainly be a
huge part of the cleanup process.

year's Stamp Out Hunger Food Drive on
May 8. It was a huge success. We
received about 9,000 pounds of food.
Because of the generosity of this
great community and the hard work of
all the volunteers, especially Boy Scout
Troop 573, the food collected will enable
the pantry to survive the lean summer
months. The donations from residents
are always welcome, and are the biggest
part of why our pantry has been so suc-

in an attempt to get more out of this
land than is permissible by convincing
governing bodies to change the rules
just for this development effort. Pure
and simple, it's all about money.
Remember when a former city
commissioner repeatedly touted the
millions of dollars in desperately
needed tax revenue the city would
receive every, year, just like it does
now from the exclusive Sunset Key?
We quashed that myth when our
research disclosed that during the best
of years, property tax revenues to the
city from Sunset Key totaled only
$333,000, and brought to light a num-
ber of interestingly low property value
tax assessments on some of the most
expensive properties in the entire city.
A developed Wisteria Island
wouldn't in any way resemble today's
Sunset Key. Insurance regulations
now dictate structures be elevated
some 16 feet, resulting in a stilt city
off our shoreline.
We've come to learn that whenever
this much money is in play, we can't
depend solely upon our governing
bodies to protect us. It was the people
who thwarted the first attempt, and
ultimately it'll be the people and their
grassroots organizations who'll ensure
the proper checks and balances remain
in place.

Sunset Tiki opens its arms


New owners
work to make
it fun again
By MICHAEL HASKINS
Keynoter contributor

The Sunset Tiki Bar, hid-
den at the water's edge
behind the Galleon Resort at
617 Front St., along Key
West harbor, has once again
become a refuge for locals.
Ownership of the bar has
changed a few times during the
years, and at one point only
Galleon guests were welcome.
Locals migrated elsewhere.
Times have changed. Phil
Cook, his wife Kelly and long-
time friend Paul Gilbert took
over the food and beverage
franchise in February and have
opened the itiki bar, beach and
sundeck to locals. And their
plans don't stop there.
"We've moved slowly,"
said Phil, who has worked at
the bar for years. "Prices for
drinks were high and it seems
past owners weren't as con-
cerned about business as they
should have been."
"We want the locals to
come back, so prices have
come down and service gone
up," Kelly said. "We've
added entertainment and two
happy hours."
The entertainment sched-
ule is being finalized but the
list includes many of the is-


The Hungry Tarpon at
mile marker 77.5 bayside at
Robbie's Marina has served
dinner for slightly more than
a year, and the executive
chef reports brisk business
as locals and tourists flock in
for the eclectic offerings.
Chef Joseph Sassine said
the restaurant served break-
fast and lunch for decades,
but began staying open for
evening dining in 2009. The
menu varies, with different
daily specials.
"Today I have come up
with a sweet-potato crab frit-
ter with Caribbean cocktail
sauce," Sassine said during a
recent visit. "We specialize
in local cuisine with Florida
and tropical flavors and use
only the freshest ingredients,
including fish caught right
here in these waters."
Sassine added that diners
who are familiar with his cre-
ations are welcome to order
dishes not found on the menu.
The atmosphere is defi-
nitely Keysy, with room for
28 diners inside, another 28
on an outside deck and a pri-
vate room that can accom-
modate 15 diners for special
occasions and small parties.
Sassine said reservations are
always recommended and
when the private room is
booked, a special selection
of dishes may be arranged.
"Just call ahead and we

land's popular singer-song-
writers like Clint Bullard,
bluesman Larry Baeder, Jeff
Clark and Will Hoppy.
The three new owners
have years of local bar expe-
rience behind them and
agree on what they want the
Sunset Tiki Bar to be.
"We want it to be fun,"
said Gilbert.
"We have two daily happy
hours and each features a special-
ty drink," Kelly said. There are
bloody Mary's from 10 a.m. to
noon and margaritas from 4 to 7
p.m. Customers get the specialty
drinks two for one during those
times. Domestic beers are $3 and
imports $4 during happy hours.


The circular bar is sur-
rounded with stools, while
the large shaded deck has
tables and chairs. All of the
seating comes with a price-
less view of the water.
Customers are welcome on
the sun deck and at the beach,
but the pool is for exclusive
use of the resort's guest.
The new owners are in
friendly negotiations to buy
out the contract owner of the
resort's 'small boardwalk
restaurant and expect to serve
food at the bar in June for the
official grand opening.
"We'll have a full menu
*available, but here at the bar
we'll barbecue burgers, dogs


can do anything you want,"
he said.
The restaurant opens at
6:30 a.m. each day for
breakfast, but has no firm
closing time.
"If someone comes in
and we're about to close, we
won't turn them away. We'll
welcome them inside and
feed them," Sassine said.
Robbie's Marina and The
Hungry Tarpon are owned
by Michael and Annie
Reckwerdt. Annie said she is
thrilled to have Sassine as
the executive chef.
"You can get fish and
seafood everywhere around
here, but Chef Joseph does
such a special job with
everything he prepares. He's
a food artist," she said. "This
place is like the Keys used to
be. It's beautiful for water-
side dining and real Keys
food."
A visit to Robbie's would


and shrimp," Phil said. "And
specials in season, like local
lobster and stone crab."
The trio points to a buoy'
marker straight across from
the bar's deck and say it is the
starting line for the Key West
powerboat races.
"And that marker," Phil
points into the harbor, "is where
the boats turn during the race.
There's no better place to see
the race up close and personal."
Since the trio has worked
in downtown clubs, they see
the Tiki Bar as a respite for
weary' locals looking to
escape the hustle and bustle
of the workplace and crowds.
"I used to come here dur-
ing the day and read a
book," Kelly said. "The sun
deck and the beach are cool
and I enjoyed it when I had
the time. Locals are wel-
come to lounge and read a
book if they want to."
"Jet Skiers and snorkel
boats come by all day and we"
wave and hope they'll want to
stop in later," Gilbert said. "We
do get people in the bar that say
they saw us from the water."
The atmosphere couldn't be
more laid back. And if you
desire that frozen drink, the
owners say the Sunset Tiki Bar
is one of the top establishments

MIDDLE KEYS


Little progress

on fire talks


County, city
still at odds
over firehouse

By RYAN MCCARTHY
rmccarthy@keynoter.com

Marathon City Manager
Roger Hernstadt says he
puts little stock in the idea
that city officials plan to
annex unincorporated Duck
Key.
The island at mile mark-
er 61 is a sizable tax base for
Monroe County and has
been at the center of dis-
agreements over fire service
in the Middle Keys. County
and city of officials met last
Wednesday in Marathon
and appear to have solved
none of their issues.
Hemrnstadt and city Fire
Chief William Wagner met
with 'County Administrator
Roman Gastesi and Fire
Chief Jim Callahan in
Marathon.
"We met for more than
two hours and we didn't get
totally through the issue. We
talked about overlapping
issues 'and what all the
options would be under
every scenario," he said.
The city plans to con-
struct a 5,100-square-foot
fire station on land it pur-
chased from the Jolly Roger
Travel Park near mile mark-
er 59. They've been housing
firefighters there on a tem-
porary basis for more than a


year to provide service to
the Grassy Key area of
Marathon.
Callahan has long advo-
cated moving forward with
a new county firehouse on
Conch Key, at mile marker
63. The county has $2.7
million budgeted to build
the station.
Callahan's been critical
of Marathon's chosen loca-
tion, and says it's too far
from Marathon's Grassy
Key population. He also
maintains the city has ideas
on annexing Duck Key.
Heinstadt says no.
"The answer is that's
where we have land. The
truth of the matter is that
[Callahan] thinks this whole
thing has to do with Duck
Key and he's entitled to his
opinion," he said.
Hernstadt admits the
Grassy location is not per-
fect, but it's more than serv-
iceable for the city's Grassy
Key population. The City
Council has wanted a sta-
tion there to cover those res-
idents and lower their fire
insurance by having cover-
age closer to their homes.
"We have overlapping
coverage within a 5-mile
[area] and that's why that
location is OK for us," he
said. "I'm not going to say
that it's perfect because
nothing in this world is. If
we were starting with a
blank piece of paper,
Callahan's comments might
have some validity."


WISTERIA 1SL.A',ND


Squatters long a problem


By SEAN KINNEY
skinney@keynoter.com

With its accessibility from
Key West, Wisteria Island has
been a bastion of illegal activ-
ity, including camping and"
dumping, since the 1960s.
To quell that, the property
owners want to develop a
high-end housing and resort
complex similar to the adja-
cent Sunset Key, formerly
known as Tank Island.
"The Wisteria Island
squatter problem and illegal
dumping of massive debris
on the island by trespassers
and by illegally anchored
boaters has grown notably
over the past few years as the
number of derelict and aban-
doned vessels have increased
around the island," project-
spokesman-Bill Barry said.
"The area is in dire need of
management and enforcement
regulations," land-use con-
sultant Owen Trepanier wrote
in an application to county
planners for a future land-use-
map designation allowing the
proposed use. He's working
'for developers, the Bernstein
and Walsh families.
Examples of dumping on
the island, which is also
known as Christmas Tree
Island, include engine blocks
used to anchor vessels. One
man even blows fiberglass
onto busted boat hulls, then

WISTERIA ISLAND


rents out the finished product.
There are "no trespassing".
signs prominently posted, but
they don't seem to serve as a
deterrent.
"It would require an unre-
alistic investment of 24/7
security personnel staffed on
and around the undeveloped
island," Barry said. "Efforts
have been made in the past'to
clean the island of debris and,
with the assistance of law
enforcement, remove[ing]
trespassers without request-
ing arrest or charges placed
upon violators. The problem
returns as soon as the cleanup
occurs and law enforcement
officers pull away.'
Al Sullivan, vice presi-
dent of environmental group


Last Stand, said' his group is
"paying close attention" to
the development proposal.
He took a trip to the island
earlier this week.
"When I was out there ...
there was a bald eagle and a
nest that the eagle was in on
the south side of the island.
There was an even larger nest
on the other side of the island."
"There were encampments
out there," Sullivan continued.
"The interior part of the island
Wasn't as awful as I was led to
believe. There certainly were
a ton of boats onshore and
nearshore turned over."
He also mentioned that his
group is hearing a presenta-
tion from Roger Bernstein,
one of the principal owners,


Engine blocks
illegally hold
boats in place off
Wisteria Island in
Key West Harbor.
The owners of
the island want
to develop a
fee-5ased
mooring field
to solve that,
and other
environmental
problems.

Keynoter courtesy
BILL BARRY
in the near future.
"We are wary of develop-
ment of this kind but we
obviously want to know
more," Sullivan said.
"The solution is the pro-
posed managed mooring
field and the limited on-
island development plan,"
Barry said.
"The proposed develop-
inent plan [would] end the
boater safety hazard from
derelict and abandoned ves-
sels, sea-bed environmental
damage from improper
moorings and anchorages,
and the significant pollution
problem from human waste
being flushed into the
nearshore waters of Key
West."

Pointing to an abundance
of upland and marine pollu-
tion along with derelict ves-
sels and myriad criminal
activity, the owners of
Wisteria Island want to clean
up their property into a high-
end resort community.
Although it's separated
from Key West by some
2,200 feet, Wisteria Island is
theoretically treated the same
as any other piece of private
property subject to illegal
dumping.
"Ultimately, it all lies on
the property owners,"
Monroe County Code
Enforcement Director Ronda
Norman said. "That statute


requires that the violations
run with the property, so we'd
cite the property owners."
That would be the
Bernstein and Walsh fami-
lies, the latter the owner of
adjacent Sunset Key, to
which a future Wisteria
Island development would be
tied both stylistically and by
submerged utility corridors.
and water taxi.
"We've been out there
before and we've had
cleanup with the other agen-
cies," Norman said of the
island. "It's been a few
years."
She explained that in
many cases, enforcement
officers in her department are
able to locate the person
responsible for dumping


through receipts or mail, for
example.
But "unfortunately, a lot
of cases we just have to cite
the property owners because
we can't identify who has
done it."
However, Norman could-


n't recall any code citations
being issued to the owners of
Wisteria Island for non-com-
pliance related to dumping.
\ Project spokesman Bill
Barry said Wisteria "is a
draw for illegal activities.".

future land-use map, or
FLUM, designation.
The property owners, the
Bernstein and Walsh fami-
lies, want a designation that
would allow 35 single-family
homes, five workforce units,
35 transient rental units with
a combined 85 bedrooms,
and 39,500 square feet of
retail, restaurant and shore-
side buildings with a 116-ball
mooring field.
What's unique about
Wisteria Island's lack of
FLUM status is that, when
the county drafted its com-
prehensive land-use plan in
1992, virtually every piece of
land, no matter how insignif-
icant, was included.
"We've been trying to fig-
ure that one out ourselves,"
county Comprehensive
Planning Manager Mitch
Harvey said.
"The only thing that I can
think of is because a lot of our
maps only go out to the cor-
porate limit of Key West and
this is one little piece that's
just outside the corporate
boundary. We couldn't come
up with a good answer."
Land-use consultant Owen
Trepanier, working for the
Walshes and. Bernsteins, pro-
vides background in an appli-
cation he submitted to the
county in November asking for
a future land-use designation:
"A mapping error
occurred when the current
,FLUM maps were created.
As depicted in the attached
FLUM map for this area,
Wisteria is the only property
in unincorporated Monroe
County missing a FLUM
designation....
"It is clearly an oversight
considering all other land on
this panel is FLUM'd with
various designations. Even
the very insignificant public
lands and mangrove islands
located far from U.S. 1 con-
tain various FLUM designa-
tions, but this significant
[piece] of privately owned
land adjacent and within very
intense area of land use was
neglected to be FLUM'd."
"During the recent efforts
to prepare an application for
the Key West Harbor moor-
ing field proposed at Wisteria
Island, the environmental
engineering company
became aware that the island
was not on the land use
map," project spokesman
Bill Barry told the Keynoter.

There is a major run of
big dolphin throughout the
Keys. I've "seen and heard
of many fish weighing 20
pounds and up along with
no fewer than a half dozen
in the 50- to 60-pound
class.
Dolphin hunters have
chosen to troll the 200- to
650-foot depths, mostly due
to the rough seas of late. As
conditions' settle down into a
slight breeze this week,
anglers will be able to do
more running and gunning.
Look for birds, weed lines
and floating debris.
A rigged ballyhoo is
always the bait of choice. Be
sure to keep some live offer-
ings, such as pinfish, on the
boat. At the very least, carry
a couple of Sabiki rigs to
snag yourself some small
jacks found under floaters or
in thick weed patches. Quite
often, live bait makes the
difference between looking
at a slammer in the water
and admiring it in your fish
box.

"We're putting in a pretty
complex offense so we'll
find out where we are in our
progress," said Hurricane
head coach Kelly Clark.
Sophomore Andre White-
head, a first-year varsity
player, will get the start at
quarterback for the Hurri-
canes, rebuilding after a
winless 2009 fall season.
"Andre has been something
of a surprise," Clark said. "He's
been playing at a high level
since we started this spring,"
Kyle Hargis, a rising jun-
ior with varsity experience,
will lead the roster of running


backs expected to see action
Thursday. Kody Roberts, a
rising sophomore entering
his second season as a varsity
starter, anchors the new
,offensive line as center.
"The offensive line is the
heart and soul of an offensive
team, and we've still got lot of
work to do to put one togeth-
er," Clark said. "Some guys
need to be convinced that they
have got to be here every day."
Rising seniors Courtney
Dixon at linebacker and Nick
Biondoletti at safety, along
with sophomore lineman
Ryan Vasquez, have looked
good in defensive coordina-
tor Shane Couty's scheme.
"Our defense should be


pretty sound," Clark said.
Returning defensive starter
Asa Lapradd will miss the
spring game due to a shoulder
injury.
"We're trying, to two-pla-
toon for the spring game as
much as possible," Clark said.
"Obviously, there are some ath-
letes you'd like to have on the
field every play, but it's been
nice to be able to have separate
offensive and defensive work-
ing together for a full practice.
"It also lets the guys get
more rest during the game,
and lets coaches work with
them on the sideline," he
said. "It also lets us get play-
ing time for more people who
have been out here working."

Young talent
stepping up
on the field
By RYAN McCARTHY
rmccarthy@keynoter.com

Certain things are
expected on most small-
town football teams, like
linemen who go both ways.
For the first time Mara-
thon High School football
coach Lance Martin can
remember, that won't be the
case for the Dolphins this
year. Not one lineman on
the field during 'offensive
series will play defense.
"That's a luxury we've
never had here," Martin said.
They'll be "fresh and be able
to make adjustments between
series, which will help us
out."
Martin said the good
thing is the Dolphins had
enough of a young influx of
talent to keep both lines
fresh. But the team is young
and coaches have kept
instruction basic during
spring practices.
Martin will see what the
team's learned Thursday,
when they square off against
Coral Shores High and
Florida Christian in
Tavernier for this year's
spring game.
The defensive line will
feature just one senior,
along with two juniors and
freshman-to-be Noel Notta.
"In the past, we've had a
lot of experienced kids and
they would pick and choose
what they want to listen to,"


She releases

Suzy Moore of battled
anglers from around the
country to win the 44th
annual Marathon Inter-
national Tarpon Tourn-
ament that ended May 8.
Moore caught and relea-
sed six tarpon during the
challenge's three fishing
evenings, earning 600
points. Her six releases
were the most for any indi-
vidual angler in the tourna-
ment, a feat she said
required patience.
"I have been trying for 15


Martin said, noting next
year's group is very coach-
able.
On the offensive line,
Martin � said senior-to-be
Matt McKeon has been
impressive this spring.
"Matt has been doing an
excellent job. He's the only
one back with experience
and it shows the way. he's
helping out. He had an
appendectomy last year and
would've played if not for
that. He's shown a lot out
there," he said.
Underclassman Connor
Boyd has also done well on
the offensive line, Martin
said.
The Dolphins were origi-
nally scheduled to face Cha-
mpagnat Catholic School
.May 27 at Miami Christian
School's field, but Cham-
pagnat backed out. That left
the team scrambling to find
a spring game opponent.
Coral Shores High
School and Florida
Christian School allowed
the Dolphins to participate
in their game instead. The
Dolphins will play the
Patriots for one half and the
Hurricanes for another, but
must sit for a half in
between.
"It's always nice to play
straight through, but they
were nice enough to let us
jump in," Martin said.
Marathon is scheduled to
play both teams during the
regular season and Martin
said he'll take that time for a
bit of advance scouting.
The spring game is
scheduled for 7 p.m.
Thursday at Coral Shores.

Thursday, three Friday, but
Saturday no fish all night,"
Moore said. "I just hoped my
strategy of catching as many
fish as possible worked."
Second place went to
Rick Stem of Milford, N.J.,
with five tarpon. Pete Knaup
of Beaver Dam, Wis., took
third place. While Knaup
also released five fish, Stem
posted a better time.
The top three guides in
order of finish were Capt.
James Platt, who led Moore
to her win, and captains
Jack Callion and Kevin
Goodwin, allof Marathon.
The tournament drew 17
anglers who !released a total
of 54 tarpon.

Tarpon are biting hard


From Fishing, 1B

lyhoo - work the best. A
deboned frozen ballyhoo
will work in a pinch if you
can't acquire any live b.aits.
* The night bite for man-
grove snapper is also heat-
,ing up on the reef. Most are
'in the 3- to 4-pound range.
'As June approaches, we'll
have some of the biggest
mangroves you'll ever
catch. Small live baits work
best, but these fish are nor-
mally so aggressive they
will take chunk baits as
well.
There are still plenty of
permit on the wrecks, both
on the oceanside and in the
gulf. Blue crabs on HookUp
Lures jig heads will serve
you well.
The tarpon bite is going
strong at the bridges and
channels. The silver kings
should be in full frenzy with
"the. upcoming Palolo worm
watch. It is a sight to behold
aind a great time to schedule
a tarpon trip with one of the
i ahy experienced Florida
(eys charter captains and
guides. We'll have more on
"-te phenomenon next week.
S.While you're fishing the
bridges, put your lines out
�pt some snapper. There are
,plenty of keeper mangroves
hpis the occasional keeper
MInutton and hogfish. Shrimp
is your go-to bait.
- On the flats and around
the islands, there are plenty
1.f sharks to go around, with
"emons and blacktips domi-
nanng. Around the bridges,
the bulls and hammerheads
are keeping the tarpon
anglers on their toes.
Shallow water angling for
sharks is excellent sport on
light tackle.'

The week's best
Here's what the charter
captains from Marathon to
Key West have been catch-
ing this week.
Capt. Jeff Shelar, of
Catch-em-All Charters out
of. Captain Pip's Marina in
Marathon, reports good dol-
phin action last week, with
lots of fish in close. His
largest fish was a 32-
pounder caught on 15-
pound test. In one three-


quarter day outing, his
anglers caught eight big fish
from 18 to 32 pounds.
Shelar has also been
doing a lot of tarpon fishing
at the Seven Mile Bridge.
One of his anglers, Terry
Johnson from North
Carolina, caught and
released a monster 150-
pounder.
Anglers fishing with
Capt. Jimmy Gagliardini, of
High Caliber Charters out of
the Hammocks in Marathon,
caught 11 slammer dolphin
and released a 12th - a 25-
pound cow - because they
agreed they already had
plenty to eat.
Capt. Dave Schugar, of
Sweet 'Enuf Charters out of
Castaway Restaurant in Ma-
rathon, had good offshore
dolphin fishing with his Ma-
rathon regular, Andy Payne,
along with anglers Pat and
Leanne Coon, Craig and
Connie and Dave Rogers.
Before he packed up and
headed back to his marina
and walleye fishing in Ohio,
Capt. Bob Brown of Sun-
dance Sport Fishing filed his
last Keys report for the sea-
son.
Rick Czepinski, of Hou-
ston, caught and released a
huge 150-pound tarpon
while fishing with Brown at
the Seven Mile Bridge. The
big tarpon wrapped the line
around several bridge pil-
ings before taking off on a
run. The fight was finished
off by a large bull shark that
*attacked the tarpon near the
boat. The fish managed to
escape with just a few scales
missing. The angler got his
revenge by catching and
releasing several lemon and
nurse sharks before calling it
a night.
SeaSquared had several
tarpon charters last week
with anglers from
Chicago, Suwanee, Ga.,
Boca Raton, Fort
Lauderdale, Canada and
Puerto Rico. The evening
bite at the Seven Mile
Bridge proved better than
the morning bite.
The Wilson family, from
St. John, Ind., spent a half
day with me snapper fish-
ing at the Seven Mile
Bridge. Despite some bar-


racuda interference, they
caught mangroves, yellow-
tails, muttons, a small red
grouper and some porgies.
Plenty for lunch back at Fat
Buoyz at the 7 Mile
Marina.
David Sorg from Fort
Lauderdale hosted his
friends, Pierre Prudhomme
and John Bertuccini from
Quebec, for a variety of
catch-and-release action on
the SeaSquared. They start-
ed with an evening tarpon
trip and finished up with
some shark fishing.
The shark action was so
hot, the guys called it quits
at a three-quarter day. I lost
count, but our videographer,
Chris Babiana of Florida
Keys Fish Tales, says they
landed between 20 and 25
lemon sharks, plus one big
barracuda, all on 20-pound
spin tackle. The fish aver-
aged about 5.5 feet with
some as large as seven feet.
Quite the different fishing
experience for the
Canadians.
Reel Lucky Capt. Moe
Mottice spent last week
mostly fishing the Key West
harbor for tarpon, sharks,
snapper and mackerel. He
had success with shrimp
trash as. bait.
Mottice reports when the
wind is with the tide in the
northwest channel there
have been several nice gag
and red grouper, yellowtail
and mangrove snapper and
the occasional mutton. Ten-
minutes from his dock in
Key West, the calm waters
on the flats are producing
large quantities of shark,
barracuda and plenty of
mackerel.
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 e-mail it to us.
Capt. Chris Johnson spe-
cializes in offshore, gulf/bay,
bottom, wreck and reef fishing
with SeaSquared Charters out
of the 7 Mile Marina in Mara-
thon. You can reach him at
743-5305, SeaSquared@bell

Charters.comn and www.Fish
ingReportsFloridaKeys.com..


Mike Edewaard, Dan Zwier, Quintin Noteboom and Randy VanWyk caught and
released this nice blue marlin fishing with Capt. Jack Carlson of Two Conchs Charters
out of the Middle Keys. First mate Bret Norris is on the left.They used a rigged bally-
hoo and Shimano spinning road and reel, and were 15 miles south of Marathon.

off Key West's 11th annual
Cuban American Heritage
Festival.
The festivities are to
continue through May 30
with events celebrating the
city's rich and, colorful
Cuban heritage.
Key West was the site
of a flourishing cigar
industry in the mid- to late
1800s, when the city wel-
comed thousands of Cuban
immigrants seeking
greater personal and polit-
ical freedom. The family
oriented Cuban American
Heritage Festival show-
cases the vjbrant culture
and customs these individ-
uals brought with them to
Key West.
Led by, the Comparsa Key
West dance troupe, the conga
line is to step off at 8 p.m.
and proceed down Duval
Street from the ocean to the
gulf. Members of the public
are invited to put on their
dancing shoes, grab their
tambourines and join the fun.
Celebrants will proceed
to El Meson de Pepe, 410
Wall St. at Mallory Square,
for a lively Latin dance,
party beginning at 9:30
p.m. Admission is free.
At 6:30 p.m. May 29, the
El Meson building is to be
dedicated as a historic site
and receive a marker that
recognizes its unique place
in Key West history. The
building will become a stop
on the new Key West
Historic Marker Tour.
The brick structure,


fronting Key West Harbor,
is a former warehouse con-
structed in the late 1800s.
As well as the popular
restaurant, it now is home
to a cigar emporium,
large-scale artwork repro-
duced from pieces by
Cuban-American folk
artist Mario Sanchez and
memorabilia that recalls
Key West's Cuban her-
itage.
At 7 p.m. May 29, El
Meson is to host a cigar din-
ner and silent auction that
celebrate Key West's cigar-


making legacy. The night is
to include a full dinner, wine
and a selection of fine
cigars. Cost is $75 per per-
son. For reservations, call
Jose Diaz at 360-0738.

Gulf of Mexico Oil Spill Response.

What we're doing. How to get more information.


Since the tragic accident on the Transocean Deepwater
Horizon rig first occurred, we have been committed to
doing everything possible to' stop the flow of oil at the
seabed, collect the oil on the surface and keep it away
from the shore.

BP has taken full responsibility for dealing with the spill.
We are determined to do everything we can to minimize
any impact. We will honor all legitimate claims.

This is an enormous team effort. More than 2,500 of our
operational and technical personnel from around the world
are working tirelessly in coordination with the U.S. Coast Guard
and federal, state and local government agencies. We are
also getting tremendous support from specialists across the
industry to resolve an unprecedented set of technical issues.

On the seabed, we are using multiple technologies to
reduce the flow of oil and ultimately stop it. On the
surface, hundreds of boats of all sizes, including local fishing
fleets, are working together to contain and collect the spill.
More than 1.2 million feet of boom is already deployed.

Our efforts along the coast are being organized through 14
staging areas across Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama and


Florida, coordinated by three command posts in Houma,
Louisiana; Mobile, Alabama; and St. Petersburg, Florida.

But the greatest response of all is from the more than
10,000 people working with BP full-time or as volunteers.
We are also grateful for the dedicated support of the
federal, state, and local government officials and
emergency responders. None of this would be possible
without the tremendous commitment of these
volunteers and officials.

We will continue to keep everyone fully informed about
the events as they unfold. For current information on the
spill and response plan, please use 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

Scientists
change mission
to study spill

Associated Press

A federally sponsored
mission to search for deep sea
corals has turned to collecting
data from the sea floor and
water near a well, spewing oil
in the Gulf of Mexico.
For years, the National In-
stitute for Undersea Science
and Technology, a partner-
ship of the University of
Mississippi, the University of
Southern Mississippi and
NOAA, has been studying
the sea floor about nine miles
north-northwest of the spot
where 200,000 gallons of oil
a day is now spewing from a
mile under water.
The scientists had planned
to study corals on a cruise that
began May 4 at Cocodrie,
where the Louisiana Universi-
ties Marine Consortium docks
the research boat Pelican. But
they took on a new purpose
and new equipment to take
foot-deep samples from the

Some question sunscreen safety


New rules are
coming down
from the FDA

McClatchy-Tribune

Sunscreen can help pre-
vent those painful epi-
sodes of childhood sun-
burn, a risk factor for skin
cancer later in life.
But although sunscreen
is recommended for in-
fants older than six months
by everyone from the Nat-
ional Institutes of Health
to the American Academy
of Pediatrics, there's grow-
ing concern by advocacy
groups, parents and some
doctors that some of the
chemicals in the products
are endocrine disruptors
and may pose risks to chil-
dren.
The U.S. Food and Drug


Administration, which draft-
ed sunscreen safety stan-
dards in 1978, is expected to
issue the final rules in
October. But for the last
,three decades, "it has been a
'Wild West on the market,"
said Jane Houlihan, senior
vice president of research
for the advocacy group
Environmental Working
Group.
"Parents need to be care-
ful what they're using, as
well as follow other sun-
safety measures, including
wearing protective clothing
and sunglasses," she said.
Environmental Working
Group, which plans to
release its third annual
sunscreen -safety report
May 25, recommends
against using product con-
taining the ingredient oxy-
benzone. Though this is
one of more than a dozen
ingredients approved by


the FDA, "we know it's
absorbed significantly into
the body," said Dr. Alan
Greene, author of "Raising
Baby Green: The Earth-
Friendly Guide to Preg-
nancy, Childbirth and
Baby Care" (Jossey-Bass).
What concerns Greene is
that the tests evaluating oxy-
benzone have been done on
healthy adults in the middle
of life. "Permanent changes
of puberty happen with one
drop of sex hormones," he
said. "We don't know the
impact of kids and babies
who get at least three times
the concentration as adults."
But the data are prelim-
inary. Moreover, "absorp-
tion alone isn't enough to
justify any posture," said
Dr. Michael Smith, direc-
tor of pediatric dermatol-
ogy at Children's Hospital
at Vanderbilt University.
"We are very comfort-

able with zinc oxide and
titanium dioxide agents,"
said Smith, chair of the
AAP section on dermatol-
ogy. He added that he's
unaware of compelling
data showing that parents
need / to be concerned
about any ingredients in
current FDA-approved
sunscreens, including oxy-
benzone.
Still, zinc and titanium
products have their own
issues: They may contain
nanoparticles that have
limited safety studies, may
be dangerous if inhaled
and may pose a risk to the
environment. (Regular
sunscreen is generally
made with microsize'parti-
cles; nanoparticles are
even smaller.) The FDA
doesn't require the manu-
facturer to list nanoparti-
cles on the label.
So far, data shows the

Sunscreen tips
Zinc oxide and titanium dioxide-based sunscreens
that do not contain nanoparticles are generally thick-
er and whiter than those that do. Avoid nano-sprays
or powders altogether, especially near the face,
because the particles can be inhaled into the lungs,
said Dr. Alan Greene, author of "Raising Baby Green."
Once your, baby is 6 months old, the American
Academy of Pediatrics recommends products with a
rating of SPF 30 or more with a broad-spectrum sun-
screen, or one that protects against both ultraviolet A
and B rays.
"Avoid products that combine bug repellent and
sunscreen," said Dr. Michael Smith of Vanderbilt. Bug
repellent isn't known to be safe for frequent applica-
tion - but you do need to reapply sunscreen to
avoid burn.
And use enough: Three teaspoons for an average
toddler, six teaspoons for an 8-year-old, Smith said.


use of nanoparticles on the
skin is safe for adults; the
EWG calls nano-scale zinc
and titanium "a reasonable
choice" in sunscreens.
But experts caution that
there' is little, if any, data
on the potential impact on
children's health. For that
matter, "information on
