Rudell's seat draws interest


By RYAN McCARTHY
rmccarthy@keynoter.com
Days following the Friday
death of Florida Keys
Mosquito Control Board
Commissioner Dick Rudell,
there's no shortage of people
interested in replacing him.
At least two of Rudell's
opponents in November's
election said they'll likely
apply for appointment from


State Department of
Agriculture and Consumer
Services Commissioner
Adam -Putnam. Democrat
Dan Dombroski lost to Rudell
in the general election, while
Rudell defeated Republican
Howard Hubbard in the
August primary.
"During the campaign,
Dick and I were opponents,
but I came to respect him and
we developed a friendship.


At least four want to apply to
fill late commissioner's slot


The most important thing
now, while there is some
interest on my part, is Dick
and his family. After a little
tirite I'll make a decision if I
want to pursue that,"
Dombroski said.
"I would like to apply and
intend to apply. I still go to
meetings and even go to


Florida Mosquito Control
conferences," Hubbard said.
Also expressing interest,
said Rudell's neighbor,
Monroe County
Commissioner George
Neugent, are Cudjoe Key res-
ident Phil Goodman - whose
wife Debby chairs the
Republican Executive


Committee
of the
Florida Keys
- and for-
m e r
Mosquito
C Control
Director
RUDELL Greg Scott
of Big Pine
Key.
Putnam is responsible for
choosing a replacement "in


the event of a vacancy due to
any cause ... for the unexpired
term," state law says.
Whomever Putnam appoints
' will fill the seat until 2014,
when Rudell's fourth four-
year term would have
expired.
Like Gov. Rick. Scott,
Putnam is a Republican.

Friends and family remem-
ber longtime Florida Keys
Mosquito Control Board
Commissioner Dick Rudell as
an active and opinionated per-
son who was always invested
in his community.
Rudell died suddenly at his
home Friday night at age 72.


He was elected to his fourth
consecutive term on the board
in November.
According to his sister,
Leslie Pyle, Rudell died just
the way he would have want-
ed.
"If he could have planned
it, he wanted to go from full
speed to nothing. If he could-
n't be doing things and be
active, that was it," she said.

GIVING BACK


Woman finds her calling service


Olson's latest
nonprofit work
is in Nigeria
By RYAN McCARTHY
rmccarthy@keynoter.com

Islamorada resident Ana
Olson recognized her pas-
sion for serving others at a
young age.
Born in Cuba, Olson
was just 5 years old when
she immigrated with her
family to the Unites States.
She says she never forgot
how others helped her then
and how it instilled a desire
to do the same later in life.
"As a refugee, I'm the
recipient of that. I received
a lot when I came over to
this country. It's a good
way to give back," Olson
said.
All these years later -
Olson will be 56 on March
1 - she's still paying it
forward. The Islamorada


resident's most recent such
venture was a two-week
trip to the remote village of
Nnewi in southeastern
Nigeria in January.
Olson worked with
Tennessee-based Dr. Afam
Ikejiani's nonprofit group
Humanity Bridge, which
performed life-saving sur-
gical procedures, offered
vision checks and doled
out more than 1,000 pairs
of reading glasses, among
other services.
It was Olson's seventh
service trip to Africa alone.
She estimates 20 overall
the last 10 to 12 years,
including numerous stops
in Central America, the
Caribbean and Southeast
Asia.
The work is often done
in destitute and dangerous
settings. But Olson says the
surroundings, even young
children carrying AK-47
assault rifles, don't dampen
her enthusiasm. She calls
those children "the most

Scholl gets an extension


He stays as
city manager
following vote
By SEAN KINNEY
skinney@keynoter.com

Key West City Manager
Jim Scholl will continue to
lead city operations until at
least June 2012. So decided
the City Commission on
Feb. 1, when it reupped the


former commander of Naval
Air Station Key West.
Scholl has been city man-
ager since 2007, earning
$180,000 per year. He took
over the city's top adminis-
trative post from then-11-
year City Manager Julio
Avael.
In the discussion leading
up to the commission's
unanimous approval of an
extension, commissioners
generally praised Scholl. But
Commissioner Billy


Wardlow criticized his com-
munications skills.
"My problem is the same
as since I was elected,"
Wardlow said. "He is com-
municating with me better
than he was in the begin-
ning," but added that he'd
heard reports of. residents
and businesses not receiving
callbacks.
"I just want to see him
work a little closer with us
and with the public,"
Wardlow said.


Olson cites 'global network'

manifest," Olson said.
Professionally, Olson
works as an evaluator for
drunk-driving cases in
Monroe County for a
Miami-based nonprofit
called Advocate. But
service work is what she
loves.
"I remember graduat-
ing from high school and
saying I wanted to do
something like join the
Peace Corps. [My par-
ents] said you will go to
school and get a degree
and become a profession-
al and make a life in the
U.S.," Olson remembers.
"When I turned 40, I
thought I'm old enough to
do what I've always
wanted. I thought .I'll do
it for a couple years and
all these years later, I'm
still doing it."
Her first trip was in
1998, with husband Don,


a retired
Lutherah
pastor. He
i g i was in
Korea and
Japan lec-
turing and
Olson got
OLSON to know
numerous
people involved with
service trips abroad.
"Once you get
involved, you become
part of a much larger net-
work. It's really a global
network," she said.
The trip last month
originated when Olson
met Ikejiani .in Togo,' a
small West African
nation, in 2002. She was
there monitoring the pres-
idential election for
fraud.
"We just continued
contact with each other.
One of the things he said
was he hoped to develop
his own nonprofit doing


medical work in Nigeria,"
Olson said.
Barely unpacked from
the trip to Nigeria, Olson
is already busy helping
set up a fundraiser for a
humanitarian effort in
Haiti called Have a Heart
for Haiti. Olson is hosting
Diesa Seidel, founder and
executive director of the
United Initiative ?or
Peace, who will speak
about a two-week camp
for girls she will direct
this summer in Port Au
Prince, Haiti.
Seidel will appear at
St. James the Fisherman
Episcopal Church at 10
a.m. Sunday. 'The church
is at mile marker 87.5,
Islamorada. A fundraiser
to benefit the camp will
take place at the Coral
Harbor Clubhouse, mile
marker 88.2 on the Old
Highway, from 5 p.m. to
7 p.m. the same day.


Center ready to open


From Convalescent, 1A

struction loan from the
Lower Florida Keys
Hospital District board, a
taxing entity created in
the 1980s to oversee the
nursing home and Lower
Keys Medical Center.
The board stopped
levying taxes when the
hospital was taken over
by health-care giant
Health Management
Associates and converted
into a for-profit business
in 1998. HMA paid the
district $30 million for a
lease on the hospital, and
there's $6 million left in
that fund, adjusted for the
$3 million loan.
Dave Oatway, a mem-
ber of the district board,
said Tuesday that the
nursing home would take
"in the neighborhood of
three to five residents per
week at max," and that
there are more than 90
people on a waiting list.
It can accommodate
120 residents but Oatway
said a portion of those
beds would be for "locals
as the need comes up,"
and not strictly reserved
for long-term Medicaid
patients.


"They're being very
prudent in ramping up,"
he said, "so that they have
their systems in place as
they get larger and get
more residents. There's an
incredible amount of
paperwork ' needed to
bring a patient into a nurs-
ing home. All of that has
to be absolutely perfect,
as well as the care."
The facility took their
first test patient in late
November and since then
has undergone surveying
from AHCA teams to cor-
rect errors that were
largely based on record
keeping.
Another facet of the
agreement between the
Hospital District board
and Senior Care calls for
a six-member advisory
council to be empanelled.
Members so far include
Oatway, Angela Smith
and Jane Burchett, admin-
istrators at the facility,
and Chris Kmet and Jean
Nelson of Senior Care.
The sixth member has yet
to be appointed.
"It's going to be look-
ing at the operations of
the facility and make sure
we don't get into the same
problems we had with the

last operator," Oatway
said, referencing former
operator Midcare Inc. out
of Tennessee. Midcare
was cited for letting the
building fall into disre-
pair, creating safety haz-
ards; patient abuse; and
poor record keeping.
"It doesn't have power
per se," Oatway said of
the advisory council, "but
it's a means of communi-
cating. Senior Care has
been very, very open with
what they're doing. They
want to be a part of the
community and this is one,
way of doing that. We
institutionalized it [in the
agreement with Senior
Care] so we know what's
going on ahead of time
and can make contin-
gency plans." *
Florida has on the
books a moratorium on
nursing-home expansion
that is designed to quell
over-competition unless
the operator can demon-
strate a need for the serv-
ice. That's not iri play in
Key West, Oatway said,
because the state license
for the Stock Island facil-
ity never lapsed, thereby
not triggering the demon-
stration of need.

Margaret Romero, the
only resident who comment-
ed on the contract, noted
quite simply that Scholl "is
not a Bubba."
Scholl told the Keynoter
he plans to focus the next
year on major public projects
that are already under way.
"We're going to continue
working on all the major
issues we've got going right
now," he said, pointing out
negotiations with the
Monroe County School


District to acquire Glynn
Archer Elementary School
for use as a city hall, devel-
opment of park space at the
Truman Waterfront and
upcoming construction on
North Roosevelt Boulevard
that will drastically alter the
city's traffic pattern for more
than two years.
"There's a lot of moving
parts and pretty large projects
that need to be done," Scholl
said, "and they're all in some
state of completion."


FISHERMEN'S HOSPITAL


Coldren replaces


Burnett on board


He's a longtime
member of
advisory panel
By RYAN McCARTHY
rmccarthy@keynoter.com

The Fishermen's
Hospital board of trustees
on Monday appointed
Marathon resident Jeff
Coldren to its vacant sev-
enth. seat.
For eight years, the
founder and chairman of
Sunshine Quality Roofing
Inc. was a member of the
Marathon medical center's
board of advisors before
being elected chairman in
2010. Management compa-
ny Health Management
Associates appoints that
board.
The board is working
with Tennessee-based
Quorum Health Resources
to replace HMA, which has
leased Fishermen's for
nearly 25 years. The board
will assume financial
responsibility for the hospi-
tal in July.
"I'm looking forward to
the challenge. I like the
idea that profits will be
reinvested in the communi-
ty and not shipped out of
town," Coldren said.
Coldren replaces Clyde
Burnett. Burnett's fellow
board members voted him
off the board on Jan. 24


amid con-
tinued alle-
gations of
harassment
le vied
against him
b y
Marathon
City Clerk
COLDREN D i a n e
Clavier. However, the
board cited no specific
cause for voting him out.
Board member and
spokesman David Kirwan
said other names were dis-
cussed to replace Burnett,
but the only vote taken was
to appoint Coldren.
"It was a consensus vote
on him," he said.
"We are pleased that Jeff
has agreed to join our
board. His demonstrated
leadership and longstand-
ing interest in Fishermen's
Hospital will be a valuable
asset as the Hospital Board
of. Trustees transitions
Fishermen's to local gover-
nance," trustee Chairman
Michael Cunningham said
in a prepared statement.
Cunningham, executive
director of the Florida Keys
Area Health Education
Center, replaced Burnett as
chairman last week.

nonprofit that owns the
hospital, whose bylaws
state it must have a mini-
mum of seven members
and as many as 14.


He raises
the question
of autonomy
By SEAN KINNEY
skinney@keynoter.com

Stephen Muffler resigned
Friday from Key West's
Citizen Review Board, citing
a "grave concern" about the
chain of command related to
the independent police inves-
tigative panel..
City voters created the
CRB in 2002 through a city-
charter amendment. Muffler
had been executive director
since 2008, earning about
$45,000 annually.
Muffler, reached via e-
mail for comment on
Monday, didn't go into details
about why he called it quits,
leaving it at, "It really was
nice to be part of Key West's
One Human Family for the'
past two-and-a-half years."
In his e-mail to the six cur-
rent members of the CRB,
sent out around 9:30 p.m.
Friday, he focuses on one sec-
tion of his annual employ-
ment contract, which expired
in October arid was up for
renewal before the City
Commission on Feb. 1.
Commissioners took issue
with the level of oversight for
the CRB chief, laid out.in the
contract, which was ultimate-
ly withdrawn: Muffler
"serves at the pleasure of the
CRB members and does not
report to and is not subject to
the direction of the city man-
ager ... all disciplinary mat-
ters related to the perform-
ance of the contract employee
are' the sole responsibility of
the CRB."
Commissioner Barry
Gibson noted the importance


of Muffler's autonomy
because he investigates com-
plaints against police and
then, with the approval of the
CRB, has the authority to for-
ward his findings and recom--
mendations to the city man-
ager, police chief, State
Attorney's Office or even a
grand jury.
"The executive director
should have a direct line of
report to the City
Commission," he said. "It's
nothing against a volunteer
board but it is a volunteer
board. We as a City
Commission ultimately have
to take responsibility. I'm
uncomfortable with that,"
Gibson said.
I Robert Cintron, the CRB's
attorney, said Muffler would
be replaced following a for-
mal search and interview
process and that the selection
process is at the discretion of
CRB members.
"The' city's role is just to
fund it," he said.
That gets to the heart of
what Muffler took issue with
- his board's independence.
The applicable section of the
city charter defines the rela-
tionship between the CRB
and city quite simply: "The
city shall adequately fund the
CRB to allow it to carry out
its function effectively."
"It seems to me you're
renegotiating the charter,"
Muffler told commissioners
last week. "I'm sure your
legal counsel says it's a good
discussion to have but I'm
not sure that's tonight."
City Attorney Shawn
Smith took offense.
"Mr. Muffler, could you
do me a favor?" Smith asked.
"Do not represent to the com-
mission what my intent might
be in speaking. Let's be crys-
tal clear on that point."

Pythons rebound following last year's cold kill


Reports aren't
so good for
snook stocks

By CURTIS MORGAN
cmorgan@MiamiHerald.com
Just over a year ago, a killer
freeze dropped iguanas from
trees, turned pythons into
snake-sicles and left Mayan
cichlids and other tropical fish
bobbing like bloated corks in
lakes and canals.
Now, the exotic invaders
are back - and in surprisingly
healthy numbers, particularly
in the case of the most infa-
mous of the bunch, the
Burmese python.
Water managers are again
routinely pulling 'snakes off
canal levees, only last week
bagging a 13.5-foot male along
the bank of the L-28 in West
Miami-Dade. In Everglades
National Park - epicenter of
the exotic invasion - the
record cold last January
appears to have had only a
mild chilling effect.
"Right now, the numbers'
aren't all that different," said
park biologist Skip' Snow.
"We're finding them in the
same places we've been find-


ing them."
While scientists can only
estimate the toll the Big Chill
took on the army of exotic rep-
tiles, fish and plants in the
wilds of South Florida, field
observations over the last year
suggest nature knocked them
down but not out. Some
already are speeding down the
road to recovery.
David Hallac, the park's
biological resources chief, said
he expected a sharp decline in
captured snakes. But last
year's total of 322 fell only
about 10 percent from 2009.
"That actually shocked
me," Hallac said. "We couldn't
believe how many snakes were
coming in. At a minimum, I
was thinking maybe a 50 per-
cent drop."
Wildlife managers and
biologists have long consid-
ered cold weather the best
hope for controlling the spread
of exotic species. Most are
tropical imports that were
either illegally released by
owners or accidentally
escaped. Some, such as
pythons, pose major ecological
threats, competiirg for space
and food and preying on native
wildlife.
The frigid weather last
January was the coldest 12-day


stretch since the 1940s,
according to the National
Weather Service, with temper-
atures in the Everglades never
rising above 50 degrees. It
claimed countless victims,
native and exotic, across
diverse habitats.
The Florida Fish and
Wildlife Conservation
Commission documented at
least 244 manatees killed by
cold, leading to a one-year
record for total deaths.
A plunge in ocean tempera-
tures all but wiped out corals in
shallow waters from Biscayne
Bay through much of the
Florida Keys and left hundreds
of sea turtles dead or stunned
and sick. The 100-plus car-
casses of rare North American
crocodiles represented about
10 percent of the coastal popu-
lation. The cold snap also pro-
duced one of the largest fish
kills seen in decades.
Peter Frezza, Everglades
research manager for Audubon
of Florida in Tavemier, took
more than a dozen trips across
Florida Bay and into the
Everglades to study the effects,
which he documented in a
recent report published in the
Tropical Audubon. Society's
winter newsletter.
In one backcountry basin


alone, he did a detailed count
and came back with a stagger-
ing 39,800 dead snook and tar-
pon - fish prized by anglers.
The final tally from all his
trips: About 90,000 dead
snook, staggering but only a
small fraction of a loss that
forced the state to shut down
snook fishing for much of the
year. Snook fishing remains
restricted on the Gulf Coast
and in Everglades National
Park and Monroe County,
where only catch and release is
allowed until at least this
September.
While Frezza, an avid fish-
erman, still reports "an incred-
ible lack of snook" in Florida
Bay and the southern Glades,
he has been encouraged by
other rebounds. Pilchards, a
key bait fish, have returned en
masse and there's been a surge
in young cold-hardy redfish,
which should reach legal size
next year.
In the coastal marshes, he
has also seen an explosion of
mosquitofish and other tiny
prey fish that are the main diet
for rare roseate spoonbill and
many wading birds. That's a
result, he said, of healthy water
levels and the cold slamming
what had been unhealthily
large populations of exotic


fish.
The plentiful food is prom-
ising for wading birds, Frezza
said: "We're hoping for a very
successful breeding season."
But if history holds, Mayan
cichlids, spotted tilapia and
other tropical fish will push
deep into the marshes sooner
or later, said Kelly Gestring,
director of the FWC's Non-
Native Fish Research
Laboratory in Boca Raton.
Canals and other warmer
refuges have sheltered enough
of the fish in past freeze to fuel
renewed population booms, he
said. "It's probably going to be
a temporary reduction."
The tree-dwelling green
iguana was a rare invader that
appears to have been beaten
back hard, but no one doubts
the species will .rebound.
That also could be the case


for exotic plants that wildlife
managers have struggled for
decades to eradicate. LeRoy
Rodgers, the South Florida
Water Management District's
lead scientist for vegetation
management, was hoping for a
big hand. from nature. He did-
n't get it.
The frigid temperatures
damaged some species, he
said, but not enough to stem
their spread. One, the thicket-
forming Brazilian pepper, tol-
erated the cold better than
many natives.
"It's frustrating," he said.
As for pythons, the brutal
cold did accomplish at least
one significant thing, said
Frank Mazzotti, a University
of Florida wildlife ecologist. It
flattened a rising trend line in
Everglades captures for the
first time in a decade.


Saunders: Budget as written won't pass


From DCA, 1 A

State Concern, Monroe
County must submit its
development regulations to
DCA to ensure the Keys
don't become overbuilt.
DCA - which Scott has
described as a "job killer"
agency - also tracks
Monroe County's progress
on upgrading sewage treat-
ment to protect nearshore
waters from pollution.
How much of Scott's
budget plan - which cuts
$4.6 billion from the current
state budget - survives in
the Florida legislative ses-
sion that starts March 8 is an
open question.
Under state law, the gov-
ernor must submit an annual
budget proposal but the
Legislature is under no obli-
gation to follow it.
"I've talked to a couple of
my Republican colleagues in
the Legislature, and they are
not too optimistic that the gov-
ernor's budget will pass as
written," said state Rep. Ron
Saunders, the House Demo-
cratic leader from Key West.
"The DCA performs an
important function,"
Saunders said. "Rules are in
effect and somebody's got to
enforce them. Without leg-
islative action, I don't think
[Scott] will be able tb do
much, but we'll see."
Monroe County
Commissioner George
Neugent said when it comes
to protecting the Keys, no
DCA could be better than an
agency committed to a pro-
development mission.
"We've lived through
some pretty squirrelly
[DCA] secretaries," Neugent
said. "For me, I'll take not
having a DCA rather than
one that is going to work to
further-the governor's pro-
development agenda."


Regulatory rules already
written into Monroe
County's comprehensive
land-use plan should be suf-
ficient to protect the Keys
environment, Neugent said.
"Right now we have a
good Couhty Commission
that's smart on growth,"
Neugent said.
"The governor apparently
is sticking by his pledge to
streamline the organization
of state agencies," County
Administrator Roman
Gastesi said.
"I'm not sure what
[Scott's plan] would do
exactly but I assume that the
folks we deal with on com-
munity planning would move
to DEP," Gastesi said. "I
guess it means we call them
at DEP instead of DCA. If
that.happens, I don't foresee
any major changes."
Marathon has already
addressed "all of the issues
that DCA identified as a pri-
ority for us," City Manager
Roger Hernstadt said. "We
will continue pursuing those
objectives whether DCA is in
place or not. We do have our
eye on the ball, and will work
to make good decisions local-


Scott said Florida must
trim its spending in a time of
economic hardship for state
residents, and urged reduc-
tions in corporate taxes to
spur job growth.
"It's not a budget that
dabbles," Scott said. "It's a
"two-year budget that faces
realities now rather than put-
ting them off for later."
"The fact is that govern-
ment has to get back to its
core functions - only its
core functions," Scott said.
"This is a lean budget that
reduces state spending, cuts
taxes for Floridians and
reforms a regulatory frame-
work that has stunted eco-
nomic growth," Scott said.
The recommended budget
includes wide-ranging cuts,
including a reduction in the
state workforce of more than
8.000 people. The governor
proposes spending millions
more on economic-develop-
ment efforts, but wants to cut
spending for schools.
The Miami Herald report-
ed Scott suggesting reducing
per-pupil spending in all
grades by $703, about 10
percent lower than the cur-

rent rate.
He told schools officials
that some of that can be
recovered if the Legislature
goes along with his proposal
to require all state employees
to pay 5 percent of their
salary into their pension
plans.
Since many state employ-
ees -.including teachers and
law-enforcement officers -
have seen limited or no pay
raises in recent years, that
proposal could stall in the
Legislature.
"The pensions are obvi-
ously the biggest concern
right now," Saunders said.
"So many people - teach-
ers, firefighters and police-
men - do good work for us
and we want to make sure
their pensions are protected."

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR


Governor's budget

steeped in fantasy

Scott rolls out proposed spending plan,
and it looks more like a work of fiction
than something grounded in reality

Well, that didn't take long.
Monday, Gov. Rick Scott unveiled details of his first
state budget, which promised to be anchored on jobs,
jobs, jobs. Who could have guessed he meant eliminat-
ing jobs, especially for state workers?
Perhaps the most telling of his $4.6 billion in .pro-
posed budget cuts comes from gtitting the Department
of Community Affairs. According to Scott, that agency,
which has an oversight role over growth management
statewide, would shrink from 358 people to 50. That
should tell you where the governor stands when it
comes to controlling sprawl in Florida.
Another of his budget cutting ideas: Outsource pris-
ons. That would eliminate 1,690 state jobs. And even
though the governor campaigned on saving $1 billion
from his prison reform ideas, the actual savings outlined
in his proposed budget amount to $82 million.
What happened?
Well, this thing called privatization means that pri-
vate contractors get the money, the state workers get the
shaft, and taxpayers actually are suckered into believing
this is for the good of the nation.
If you failed to miss the symbolism, the little American
flags being waved by the Tea Party members gathered for
Scott's budget rollout left little to the imagination.
Instead of presenting the budget to the Legislature gath-
ered in the state Capitol - which has been a storied tradi-
tion through Republican and Democratic administrations
for generations - Scott chose the First Baptist Church of
Eustis. A TV backdrop behind the rostrum read: "Reducing
Spending & Holding Government Accountable."
The church was filled with Tea Party invitees, who
waved miniature American flags and sang "God Bless
the USA." The Miami Herald-St. Petersburg Times
reports that warm-up speakers stoked the crowd by crit-
icizing "President Obama, Secretary of State Hillary
Clinton and U.S. Sen. Bill Nelson."
The opening acts also sang the praises of Pensacola
federal judge Roger Vinson, who last week struck down
the Obama health-care plan as unconstitutional. Need
we paint any more of this picture?
Ah, and lest we forget, the governor held a private
luncheon in Eustis before the budget unveiling. Only
Tea Party true believers were invited.
Maybe the governor actually means to cut $3.3 bil-
lion from state education funding over the next two
years as outlined in his budget plan?
What he didn't reveal is his notion of shifting the
burden of education funding from the state back to local
school boards. This, in a state that ranks near the bottom
in funding per student.
The Herald-Times political reporters wrote that
Scott's "budget rollout ... had the look and feel of a
highly partisan, heavily scripted campaign event."
Down this patlh, we can just picture the Tea Party ral-
'lies to come, flags held high as Florida marches further
backward into darkness under the banner of "Holding
Government Accountable."
The irony in that motto is simply too cruel. And it
will be the next generation that pays the price.

"LETTERS TO THE EDITOR

Hook the tourists
The Keynoter had an article regarding signs for
-Marathon's city limits. The design is OK; take it or leave
:it. The problem is there is no call to action.
A sign is hardly needed just to locate Marathon, even
'for a first-time Keys road trip. Also, every other car on the
road has a GPS that presents Marathon most distinctly.
The real purpose of a sign should be to market our com-
munity, to say something, to plant an idea, to create a
Thought that will change the nonstop express to Key West
' itinerary. The creativity need not go into the artwork but
rather into the hook that will create the desire to stop,
shop, eat, sleep, fish, drink - arouse a bit of curiosity that
-makes a side trip attractive.
Needless to say, our efforts should be expended on the
-northeast end of town, with maybe a reminder to stop on
;.the way back for the west extremity.
Without a call to action, the sign is really a do-noth-
,ing marker: "Look, honey, we are in Marathon. So?
'Duh." Maybe the Chamber of Commerce holds a contest
"for a catch phrase that conjures up visions of sailfish,
;lobster, coral, clear water and our own beautiful sunsets.
Give people a hint of why we live here and love it. Some
* possibilities:
* "Visit the best beach in the Keys."
* "Key West doesn't have a zoo."
* "Marathon has parking without permits."
S* "Go shopping without blindfolding the kids."

Not all cats are threats
As a longtime supporter of trap,
neuter and release programs to control
feral-cat populations, I have a couple
questions about the U.S. Fish and
Wildlife Service's proposed predator-
management plan for Florida Keys
wildlife refuges.
* Has anyone with Fish and
Wildlife given an estimate of just how
many cats are on the federal lands in
question?
* Has there been either a steep
decrease in the population of Lower
Keys marsh rabbits, Key Largo
woodrats or other native species? Has
there been a steep increase in the num-
ber of cats in these areas in recent
years?
* What other unnatural pressures
have occurred? Hurricanes, road

Ensure a clean beach
Early on a recent morning I met a
delightful 3 1/2-year-old boy and his
mother, tourists from Ohio, waiting at
7:30 am on a Sunday for the gates to
Sombrero Beach to open. The child
was to see the ocean for the first time.
His excitement was contagious, and he
was jumping up and down with joy
when finally let in. The moment was
heartwarming.
What was heartbreaking was the
condition of the beach on this particu-
lar morning. Shoreline and dunes alike
were strewn with trash and refuse, both
washed up and discarded by the previ-
ous day's visitors. The ocean's own
detritus, seaweed and jellyfish, was in
abundance, as well.
As a regular beach-goer, I know how
lovely and well-maintained Sombrero
is most of the time. Sunday, as major
family days, should be no exception.
The beach should be raked and trash
containers emptied before opening each
and every day, even Sundays. Open an
hour later, if you must.
You only get one chance to make a
first impression.

The future of tolling on Florida's
Turnpike is nearly here, and it's all-
electronic. Beginning Feb. 19, every-
one traveling on the turnpike between
Miramar and Florida City will pay tolls
electronically without having to stop.
The cash lanes will close and driv-
ers will use SunPass, Florida's prepaid
electronic toll collection system, or an
alternative method called Toll-by-
Plate. To use SunPass, drivers will need
a transponder, either a SunPass
Portable or a SunPass Mini, and an
active SunPass account.
With Toll-by-Plate, cameras over
the travel lanes take a picture of a vehi-
cle's license plate as it travels under
tolling equipment installed overhead
and mails a bill for the tolls to the reg-
istered owner of the vehicle. The cus-
tomer will be billed for tolls incurred
over a 30-day period, plus a $2.50
administrative charge per invoice.
There are solutions for those travel-
ing in a rental vehicle. Most rental-car
companies have programs that allow
their customers to pay electronically.
The tolling programs operate in various
ways; the fees and service vary from
company to company and travelers can
choose the options that best meet their
needs. This is why we recommend that
travelers check with their rental car
company for details.
Information about participating
rental car companies and fees are avail-
able at www.SunPass.com/rental
car. Also, we make it very easy for
SunPass account holders to use
SunPass with a rental vehicle; just
check the Web site.
Why eliminate cash tolls? All-elec-
tronic toll collection brings many bene-
fits, but the main one is enhanced safety.
Last-minute lane changes that can
result in crashes at the toll plazas will
be a thing of the past when drivers can
use any lane. In fact, when SunPass
express lanes that allow customers to
pay tolls while driving 60 to 70 mph
opened at locations such as the
Homestead toll plaza, crashes were
reduced by nearly 60 percent. We
expect to see greater results when we
close the cash Janes altogether.
Other important benefits are con-
venience; all-electronic toll collection
is quicker and there are no lines. No
stop-and-go means cars use less gas,
which results in savings along with a
cleaner environment.
Toll roads are becoming more and
more popular nationwide as a means td
bridge a drastic gap left by ever-dwin-
dling gasoline-tax funded transporta-
tion. All-electronic tolling probably
signifies the biggest change to the way
people drive Florida's Turnpike since


widening, increased vehicular traffic,
additional nonnative species (large
snakes, monitor lizards, iguanas and
other pet-store releases plaguing
Florida), or even development?
I am familiar with the Keys, having
spent almost half my life in Miami and
the rest in Orlando (more than 60
years total). I've visited the Keys quite
a few times. I was president of a trap,
neuter, release group in Orlando for
more than eight years, hold a bache-
lor's degree in zoology and have
worked for an environmental organi-
zation since 1993. I am not an unedu-
cated, crazy old cat lady.
The trap-and-kill concept simply
hasn't worked anywhere. Visit a few
animal shelters and see just how many
cats they have and find out how many
they kill annually. The killing has not


impacted the supply. Irresponsible
humans who either allow their pets
outdoors or simply dump them or
leave them behind are the problem.
Studies have shown that unspayed
female cats usually are the most pro-
lific hunters - they have kittens to
feed.
Young cats are more likely to hunt
than older cats, even feral ones.
However, agencies prefer to general-
ize instead of looking at individual
animals. Individual animals within a
species differ, just like us humans. Not
all cats hunt and many pose no threat
to wildlife. Finally, any ferals entering
a shelter will definitely be killed -
there is no "may" about it.

Starting Feb. 19, this will be a thing of the past in South Florida - stopping
on Florida's Turnpike to pay the toll. Electronic tolling takes its place. The
letter writer says the turnpike authority has worked with Keys entities to
educate drivers as much as possible.

Toll plazas impede
the free flow of traffic,
and now we have the
technology to do away
with them. Florida is
not alone; transporta-
tion agencies through-
out thq U.S., as well as
other countries, have
implemented all-elec-
tronic tolling or are
planning to do so.
Just as it is hard to
imagine a world with-
out jet planes, com-
puters and cell
phones, in the not-so-
distant future, we will
have trouble looking
back at a time when
drivers actually had to
stop in the middle of a
highway to pay a toll.
Technology
changes bring ques-
tions and concerns.


Often, when people first hear about all-
electronic tolling, the first thing they
ask is: What about the tourists and vis-
itors? What about those in rental cars?
Every Floridian knows how impor-
tant tourism is to our state in general
and to the Florida Keys in particular.
Florida's Turnpike is the entrance to the
Keys and it's important that travelers
have a smooth and easy experience oni
the way to a memorable vacation. This
is why we have worked with the rental-


car companies to put tolling programs
in place. These efforts will not stop on
Feb. 19. We will continue to partner
with the rental car industry to expand
and enhance the tolling programs.
Along with the rental-car providers,
we have been working with Visit
Florida, the Monroe County Tourist
Development Council and other
tourism officials, all the Keys cham-
bers of commerce, visitors centers and
business community, AAA, the
Lodging Association of the Florida
Keys and Key West, Miami
International Airport, Fort Lauderdale-
Hollywood International Airport, and
many other partners to inform visitors
that they won't be able to pay cash on
the south end of the turnpike. Avoiding
surprises and having solutions lead the
way to a pleasant experience.
I want to assure the community in
the Florida Keys that Florida's
Turnpike Enterprise is committed to
making the transition to all-electronic
tolling a success. Our organization will
continue to add products and services
that will help provide safe and enjoy-
able travels for locals and visitors alike.
If you are part of the nearly 80 per-
cent who use SunPass on the turnpike
in Miami-Dade, help us spread the
word to the other 20 percent. Whether
on Twitter, Facebook or your business
Website, place a link to our Web sites
(www.FloridasTurnpike.com and

Tell your customers, friends and
family about the new way to drive
down the 'pike to the Keys.

LODGING ASSOCIATION AWARDS


FIRM

takes

stand

in Tally

Panel delays
vote to allow
more testimony
Wire and staff report
A Florida Senate commit-
tee delayed its vote on a
property insurance bill
Monday after it ran out of
time to take comments from
interested parties.
Two representatives from
Monroe County were among
the few who got a chance to
speak during the two-hour
meeting of the Banking and
Insurance Committee.
Florida lawmakers began
work last month on a proper-
ty insurance reform measure
they hope to see passed this
session. The most controver-
sial component would make
it easier for insurers to refuse
sinkhole coverage..
A similar bill, without the
sinkhole provisions, passed
the Legislature last year but
was vetoed by former Goy.
Charlie Crist.
Although a vote was
scheduled on Senate Bill
408, Garrett Richter, R-
Naples, won a postponement
to hear more testimony.
Richter is the committee's
chairman and the, bill's
author.
Sinkhole claims have
skyrocketed, approaching
nearly $2 billion in the last
i four years. Richter believes
insurance companies have
been tagged for millions of
dollars in questionable, if
not fraudulent, claims where
policyholders extract settle-
ments for something as
minor as a crack in the drive-
way or didn't use settlement
money to repair damages.
The committee heard
from a Pasco County man
who has battled his insur-
ance company over a sink-
hole.
Fair Insurance Rates in
Monroe board member
Michele Beach said Sen.
Chris Smith, D-Fort
Lauderdale, who was lead-
ing the meeting, allowed her
and Key West homeowner
Monica Dahl to speak
because they had traveled
the farthest.
While Keys residents
don't have much concern
about sinkholes, grassroots
group FIRM is concerned
that other parts of the bill
would tip the scale toward
insurers. Dahl and Beach
made the Tallahassee trip to
make a case for more, not
less, consumer protection.
Beach, an Upper Keys
business owner, said Dahl's
tale of the long road back
from Hurricafe Wilma dam-
age, some of which was dis-
covered long after the storm,
offered a good'example of
why lawmakers shouldn't


Beach said committee
members were given
PowerPoint presentations
outlining FIRM's concerns
about the legislation. Dahl
had some time to speak,
Beach said, but her own time
was cut short as the commit-
tee was rushed to adjourn.
Afterward, they made the
rounds of lawmakers' offices
and talked to aides.
While Beach was frus-
trated with how the commit-
tee meeting went, the trip
gave FIRM an opportunity
to put Keys insurance issues
in front of a new class of
policymakers.
The Senate Banking and
Insurance Committee will
revisit the bill in a couple of
weeks.

Cockfighting ring


is discovered


No one charged
following find
in Trailerama

Keynoter Staff

Twenty-nine roosters
and chickens - many of
which were missing eyes
and whose legs were
injured - were seized
when authorities broke up a
cockfighting ring in
Marathon Saturday.
No one was arrested,
although Monroe County
Sheriff's Office investiga-
tors say Ana Parrado, 31,
owns the trailer where the
animals, as well as cages
and a fighting ring, were
found. It's in the Trailerama
mobile-home park at U.S. 1
and 15th Street.
Deputy Becky Herrin
says a woman called the
Sheriff's Office to report
the activity. When Deputy
Bradford Colen arrived, he
found a group of people in a

This is one of the roosters seized Saturday. Note how it's
legs are shaved and the top of its head cut, which are
signs indicative of cockfighting.


fenced yard around the ring,
which was about 10 to 12
feet around. When the


group spotted him, they
began to scatter, Herrin
said. He called for backup
and they were able to detain
five - people for further
investigation.
The animals have visible
signs of being fighting
roosters, including having
cut combs and waddles cut,
and shaved lower feathers.
It's the second time in a
month fighting roosters
were found in the Keys. In
January, a 39-year-old man
was charged with training
roosters for cockfighting on
Rockland Key. Sixty-four
roosters were seized.
Like the birds in
Marathon, the Rockland
Key animals were plucked
and their wattles and combs
cut off. Also found at the
site were detachable talons,
syringes, vitamins and
other rooster-fighting para-
phernalia, along with a
fighting ring. Inside the ring
was splattered blood.

Bonefish could get more


protection from state


FWC considers
no-take status
for grey ghost

By KEVIN WADLOW
Senior Staff Writer
kwadlow@keynoter.com
Bonefish would become
a catch-and-release species
protected from harvest
under a draft rule reaching
state fishery managers Feb.
23.
Anglers could still catch
a bonefish and briefly
remove it from the water for
photographs or measuring,
but the fish would have to
be returned to the water
alive, says the plan from
staff at the Florida Fish and
Wildlife Conservation
Commission.
The FWC board will
hear a presentation on the
draft rule at its Feb. 23
meeting in Apalachicola. If
given tentative approval,
the no-take rule would be
considered for final
approval in April.
The Bonefish and Tarpon


Trust, a fishing and conser-
vation group based in the
Keys, has spearheaded a
campaign for more than two
years to fully protect the
prized game fish from being
killed. Current regulations
allow anglers to take one
legal-size bonefish per day.
The draft rule includes a
tournament exemption that
would let fishermen in an
,approved competition put a
bonefish in a boat's live
well for transport to a weigh
station for measuring. The
fish would then be released.
"The Florida Keys bone-
fish population of today is
85 percent smaller than it
was in the early 1970s, and
the Florida Keys habitats
that support bonefish con-
tinue to be under threat,"
Bonefish and Tarpon Trust
members wrote in a 2008
statement.
Jerry Ault, a University
of Miami fisheries scientist,
has estimated that every
bonefish in Florida waters
is worth $3,500 annually,
based on the money spent
by visiting anglers to pursue
the hard-fighting fish
known as the grey ghost of


the flats.
However, a 2010 survey
of bonefish numbers (less
formal than a full popula-
tion assessment) suggested
the bonefish stock may be
significantly lower than the
mean population of about
317,000 bonefish.
In January 2010, an
"extended cold wave was
particularly lethal to tropi-
cal game fish species
including tarpon, snook and
bonefish, and to their prey,"
says the UM report.
A special three-month
closed season on harvesting
bonefish was imposed fol-
lowing the record-breaking
cold snap.
State fishery managers
added some protections to
bonefish last spring, includ-
ing extending Florida rules
to adjacent federal waters.
However, bonefish advo-
cates said the rules did not
go far enough to safeguard
bonefish.
Florida Keys fishing
guides say a ban on harvest-
ing bonefish would not
affect them, since local tra-
dition holds that bonefish
be released alive.

Cache of drugs found


Woman faces
many felonies
following raid

Keynoter Staff
A tip to alleged drug deal-
ers: If the cops are about to
knock down your door, don't
say it's an inconvenient time
and ask if they can come
back for the drugs later.
They'll say no.
That's what a. Key West
woman found out Friday
when a cache of drugs
reportedly was found at her
house. Alonda Brown-
Hadaric, 28, remained jailed
Tuesday in lieu of $60,500
bond.
Key West police say they


found at her
house. 925
Eaton St.,
17 ounces
of marijua-
na, 44
grams of
Ecstasy,
BROWN- close to 10
HARADIC grams of
LSD and
several prescription pills.
She also reportedly had
scales and drug-packaging
materials - and nearly
$13,000 in cash, which was
seized.
Police spokeswoman
Alyson Crean says police
were tipped to the alleged
dealing and knocked on
Brown-Hadaric's door late
Friday night. She refused to
let them in, "instead offering


to hand over the drugs if the
police would just come back
later."
That didn't happen, and
detectives broke the door
open. Brown-Hadaric and
Patrick Sauter, 36, were
inside.
Brown-Hadaric is
charged with possession of
marijuana and synthetic
drugs with.intent to distrib-
ute, possession of cocaine
and more than 20 grams
marijuana, trafficking
Ecstasy and LSD, and resist-
ing arrest. She was booked
into the Stock Island jail at
12:15 a.m. Saturday.
Sauter is charged with
possession of less than 20
grams of marijuana and drug
paraphernalia, and resisting
arrest.


Smith: No political appointee

appoints] would have . a
Republican background;"
board Chairman. Bill Shaw
said, adding he's had "every
person in the world" calling
him about the post.
Putnam spokesman
Sterling Ivey said there's no
timetable to fill the seat.
"I understand there's gen-
erally a lot of interest in serv-
ing on the board in the Keys.


We expect we'll have a rela-
tively good pool of candi-
dates to consider," he said.
Rudell "had a lot of confi-
dence in [Dombroski]. I hope
we don't just get some politi-
cal appointee-type person
that doesn't have any passion.
What we do is not glamorous.
We need someone willing to
learn about what we do and
go to education programs that
we offer," Commissioner
Steven Smith said.


Dombroski runs the Boys and
Girls Club in the Keys.
Shaw says he wants some-
one with good business sense
to take over Rudell's seat.
Shaw was Rudell's long-
time ally on the board. For
years the pair were often on
the losing side of the per-
ceived voting bloc of Smith
and commissioners Joan
Lord-Papy and Charles
Langstaff. Jack Bridges
replaced Langstaff on Jan. 4.


'He was always engaged'


From Rudell, 1A

cardiovascular disease.
Diabetes was a contributing
factor.
"It could have been a heart
attack or stroke or anything
related, to the disease,"
Scheuerman said.
County Commissioner
George Neugent is Rudell's
neighbor in the Crane Point
subdivision of Marathon. He
called 911 around 7:30 p.m.
Friday when Rudell's cat, a
frequent visitor to Neugent's
house, lingered longer than
normal.
Neugent gave Sheriff's
Office deputies a key to
Rudell's house (being friends,
Rudell had given Neugent the
key in case of emergency) and
they opened the door and
found the mosquito commis-
sioner on the floor.
Rudell wore many hats in
his professional life before
moving to the Keys 33 years
ago.
"He was a salesman; he
had that personality.
Everybody liked him and
trusted him," Pyle said. She
said her brother also owned a
bar in his native
Massachusetts, and sold cars,
insurance and stocks at vari-
ous points in his life.
In the Keys, he owned
what was the Dockside


Lounge during the 1980s and
another bar on Big Pine Key
after that. He was better
known as Dockside Dick in
those days.
Soon after, he began a cab-
inet-making business,
Keywood Cabinet Distrib-
utors. He ran it for roughly 20
years.
An avid pilot, Rudell used
'his Cessna 172 to seek out
clients for the business. He'd
search for construction sites
in the air and later visit prop-
erty owners on a sales call.
He also was a naturist,
championing the idea for a
clothing-optional beach in the
Keys.
"A lot of letters to the edi-
tor," Neugent joked. "He was
quite the humorist and he was
always engaged."
Neugent remembers he
and Rudell "bumped heads
initially" because Rudell was
less than enamored with the
boating populace in Boot Key
Harbor during the late 1970s
and '80s. Neugent was a live-
aboard boater for his first two
to three years in the Keys.
"I understood his position,
which led to myself and Pete
Worthington and - others
becoming champions of a
Boot Key Harbor committee
and lobbying [the county] to
establish a mooring field and
provide pump-out facilities,"


Neugent said.
Now a city of Marathon
operation, the harbor and
marina are well thought of in
the sailing community.
In 1998, Rudell ran for an
open seat on the Mosquito
Control Board. At the time,
the district wasn't held in high
esteem. Rudell's fellow
Commissioner Steve Smith
said.
Smith and Rudell have
butted heads on the board in
recent years, but Smith
remembers Rudell as instru-
mental in the fight to make
the district respectable.
"We certainly made a lot
of recognized accomplish-
ments during our tenure being
together. People quit laughing
at Florida Keys Mosquito
Control. That would not have
come without us all working
together," he said.
Born in Arlington, Mass.,
on July 19, 1938, Rudell was
raised in Weston, Mass. He
attended Northeastern
University in Boston and was
a U.S. Navy veteran.
Two sisters, Pyle and
Linda Phoenix, survive him,
as well as seven nieces and
nephews and 11 grandnieces
and grandnephews. Pyle said
memorial services are
planned to take place in
March in Marathon.

Conchs win rematch


Raiders end


against basketball Fins Lady Canes
b h-hball season


Both teams now
seeing action
in tournaments
By DICK WAGNER
Keynoter Contributor

With the season winding
down, a precarious district
tournament game looming
and with an earlier loss to
Marathon fresh in mind,
there was no denying the
Key West High boys basket-
ball team Friday night in its
rematch with the Dolphins.
The Conchs - using bas-
ketball's oldest play, the
pick-and-roll, to get easy
baskets - won, 62-31, to
end the regular season and
avenge a 57-51 defeat in
December.
The last strains of Lee
Greenwood's vibrant record-
ing of "The Star-Spangled
Banner" had barely faded in
the Bobby Menendez Gym
- in which the bleachers
were down on both sides to
accommodate the season's
largest crowd - before the
Conchs raced to a 9-0 lead.
Marathon, without three
key players it had in the first
Key West game, began shak-
ily against the Conchs' sti-
fling man-to-man defense
and it was 11-2 at the end of
the first quarter. Junior
Je'Quan Lopez scored nine
of the points and was well on
his way to a career-high 28.
The lead was up to 12 at
20-8 before Marathon,
which couldn't make layups,
closed the half with three-
point shots by Tyler D'Auria
and Dwayne Ellis that cut
the advantage to 25-16 at

Meyers said. "It's been a fun
season. I'm looking forward
to next year."
Johnson averaged just
under 30 points per game.
"Latrice deserves all-state
recognition," Meyers said.
"Everybody knew she was
our biggest scorer but she
still managed to put up 30-
point games against tough
opposition."

guard for four years, also

Latrice Johnson capped

Gulliver, which went on to
defeat Ransom Everglades

The loss finished the Cane

The Canes surged to a
seven-point lead in the first
quarter, but the Raiders

point lead by the start of the
fourth quarter.
"We were definitely still
in the game but Gulliver

If you've been in town

Marathon features a roster
laden with upperclassmen and
quality young talent.
"We have a lot of upper-

able to jump into things. The
first two weeks there were a
lot of sore arms, but we're
better than any other year

said. Leal is entering his sixth

Senior No. 1 pitcher Matt

By DICK WAGNER
Keynoter Contributor
There are several return-
ing starters and an influx of
promising newcomers on the
2011 Key West High School
baseball team, which opens
at 8 p.m. Friday against Coral
Shores at Rex Weech Field
- but how good will the
Conchs be?
"It's hard to say," said
Miguel Menendez, who is
beginning his sixth season as
coach. "We have some talent,
but it's inexperienced. We
have worked extremely hard
all off-season getting these
kids to play baseball the right
way. I think that will show
throughout the season."
The Conchs were 14-11
last season and failed to win
the district title for the fifth
consecutive season. They are
82-58 under Menendez and
have reached the regional
tournament twice. Key West,
which has 11 state titles, has-
n't won one since 2005, in
Ralph Henriquez's last sea-
son as coach.
Among the players return-
ing are Johnny Monsalvatge,
who sparkled last season at
third base; infielder/pitcher
Michael Abreu; outfielders
Tommy Ruffennach and Matt
Chelekis; pitchers J.P. Malott


and Colby Saunders; utility
player Chris Garcia; and sec-
ond baseman-turned-catcher
Michael Henriquez, who is
the "unquestioned leader of
the team," Menendez said.
"All the guys coming
back from last year's team
have worked hard to get bat-
ter," Menendez said.
"I think our strength is the
ability to never quit. They are
tireless workers."
Newcomers to watch
include Cameron Henry, an
athletic senior transfer from
Spain who will start in the
outfield; Darren Miller, a
middle infielder/pitcher who,
Menendez said, is "one of the
most talented kids we've had
come here as a freshman;"
and Steven Wells, a freshman
who has the defensive ability
to start in center field.
Without slugger Nolan
Thomas, who graduated, the
Conchs won't have a consis-
tent home-run threat, but do
have players with extra-base
potential.
Menendez's main concern
is the pitching. The ace will be
Malott, a senior with big-game
experience. The other starters
likely will be Abreu, Garcia
and Saunders, with Garret
Pita, Reny Garcia and Manuel
Castillo (the only left-hander)
working out of the bullpen.

The Conchs began the

McCoy had been honored
before the game with fellow
seniors Bertrum Hayes and
Keith Valdez. Valdez - who
had lit up the gym so many
times in his career and who
had electrified it two years
ago when he set the state con-
secutive free-throw record
(42) - scored 19 points.
"We worked on the pick-

said, "and we said we were

tion quality fare for the
smoker.
The yellowtail snapper
bite on the reef is sporadic.
' While some areas report
excellent catches, venues
with a bay influence are
lacking. In those spots,
'however, the mangrove and
mutton snapper are making
Sup for the less than enthusi-
astic yellowtail.
Most of the mangroves
average 16 inches or so, and
the muttons are coming in
at about 22 inches - per-
fect fillets for the fryer.
There has been an
impressive hogfish bite of
late, with live shrimp being
the bait of choice. Anglers
on many of my trips last
week caught hogs, includ-
ing and. 18-incher that
weighed three and a half
pounds, a fish certainly
worthy of a Florida Keys
fish tale.
Hawk Channel is offer-
ing up a great mixed bag of
snapper plus very good-size
porgy, Spanish and cero
mackerel. We've even
caught sheepshead and
Florida pompano in the
channel waters.
If you don't happen to
have numbers for spots in
Hawk Channel, head to the
Seven Mile Bridge where
the mangrove snapper bite
is on fire for fish in the 14-
to 16-inch group. The
S bridge is highly underrated,
yet right now you'can fill a
limit of fine eating snapper
in no time at all. Keep in
mind, the limit for man-
grove snapper is five fish
per angler.
In the bay, the Spanish
mackerel bite is not as
aggressive as it has been,
but still worth the effort.
The mangrove snapper
action is improving with
each passing warm day.
There are a bunch of new
mangrove snapper regula-
tions in effect, and I recom-
mend you check them out at
www.myfwc.com.com.

The week's best
Capt. Jeff Shelar, of
Catch-em-All Charters out
of Captain Pip's Marina in
Marathon, reports a few


sailfish offshore with dol-
phin mixed in. Inshore, his
anglers are catching snap-
per and releasing keeper
size grouper, with great
kingfishing on the reef. One
of his anglers went one for
three on tarpon in the bay.
They're getting limits of
mangroves and all the
Spanish mackerel anyone
could want.
Shelar's catch of the
week goes to Allen
Hammer from Michigan
who caught and released a
60-pound sailfish in 105
feet of water off Marathon.
Mike Anderson and crew
from Lima, Ohio, had three
great days of fishing with
Capt. Bob Brown, of
Sundance Sportfishing out
of the 7 Mile Marina in
Marathon. The first day they
caught snapper, large amber-
jack and king mackerel. On
day two, blackfin tuna and
dolphin hit the box before
they topped off the day with
two sailfish, including a
hefty 80-pounder.
Marty and Mark Clein
celebrated 40th birthdays
with Sundance Sportfishing.
Brown took them to Florida
Bay where they caught large
Spanish mackerel, a nice
limit of mangrove snapper
and plenty of bluefish,
throwback grouper, some
jacks and blue runners.
Also fishing out-of the 7
Mile Marina, Capt. Jeff
Knapp of Beckoning
Charters put angler Kate
Mangan from Henderson
Harbor, N.Y., on the first
130-pound tarpon of the sea-
son. Her 5-year-old son, Jack
the Fish Magnet, did a great
job coaching her through the
fight, that lasted about 40
minutes. The very dark-
backed tarpon ate a pinfish.

Capt. Chris Johnson spe-
cializes in offshore,
gulf/bay, bottom, wreck and
reeffishing with SeaSquared
Charters out of the 7 Mile
Marina in Marathon. You

Papa's cocktails


They were

integral to

his writing

This is a party surely to
be a Florida Keys hit: "To
Have and Have Another" -
cocktails at the Hemingway
house, 907 Whitehead St.,
Key West.
The Friday fundraiser,
from 6 to 8 p.m., is a
fundraiser for the Key West
Art and Historical Society.
Philip Green, attorney for
the Museum of the
American Cocktail in New
Orleans, will discuss
Hemingway's lifestyle,
writings and his use of cock-
tails.
"Hemingway used his
knowledge and love of food
and drink in many of his
short stories and novels,"


SAFER LAOATEcRS


Green said. "I have been
fascinated by Hemingway's
writing and it wasn't long
before I found myself exper-
imenting with the food and
drinks 'he described in his
prose."
Green presented this pro-
gram at the Smithsonian in
Washington, D.C., but it has
never been offered in Key


West, where Ernest and
Pauline Hemingway lived
from 1928 to 1939. Those
attending can learn about his
favorite characters along
with their favorite drinks.
"I would say the most
unique drink that night will
be the Green Isaac's
Special," Green said.
"Hemingway used it in
'Islands in the Stream.' It is
a Tom Collins with coconut
juice."
The recipe: One ounce of
gin, 2 ounces green coconut
water, half an ounce of fresh
lime juice, and one dash of
bitters. Shake well with ice.
Other Hemingway
favorites including a bloody
Mary and his Death in the
Afternoon will also be avail-
able for guests to sample.
Tickets are $75 and can
be purchased by calling
295-6616, Ext. 106.


Check out lush Keys gardens


Five locations
on annual tour

in Upper Keys

Visitors can stroll among
and view native plants and
lush landscaping while get-
ting ideds for tropical garden-
ing during the annual Garden
Walk presented by the Upper
Keys Garden Club Friday on
Feb. 25.
Encompassing Tavernier,
Plantation Key and
Islamorada, the garden walk
includes four private gardens
and one resort between mile
markers 81.2 and 92.6.
Tours of the private gar-
dens are self-guided,
although the owners will be
on hand at most locations to
share information. Visitors
are welcome to stay at each
location as long as they wish.
Not all garden displays are
close together, so some driv-
ing is required.
Then at the Francis Tracy
Garden Center, mile marker
94, participants can enjoy
live music, a tea party, arts
and crafts vendors, a plant


ramble and an art show by the
Purple Isles Art Guild.
Tickets with a map of fea-
tured garden locations are
available for a $20 donation
to the Upper Keys Garden


Club. They can be purchased
at the Key Largo Chamber of
Commerce, Islamorada
Chamber of Commerce and
select retail locations.


This is the latest class of graduates from a recent safe-boating program offered by U.S.
Coast Guard Auxiliary Flotilla 13-2 in Marathon. Another one starts on Feb. 15 and runs for
six sessions.To register, contact Dottie Mattern at 731-7148 or dmattl03@bellsouth.net.
