Library use skyrockets

By RYAN McCARTHY i
rmccarthy@keynoter.com IWl T A


In times of economic struggle,
media mega-retailers like Barnes
& Noble and Borders give way to
a place with a much more favor-
able price structure the public
library.
That price is free, of course,
and U.S. residents are turning out
in record numbers to take advan-
tage of it. And it's no different
here in the Keys.
Despite reduced hours due to a
budget shortfall, 2008 numbers
indicate usage at the five Monroe
County-run branches has
increased significantly from the
year before.
"We know that a lot of people
are using them in a lot of ways.
People use them for Internet
access; people are using them for
recreational things to get away
from everyday life, and CDs and
DVDs have increased in their
popularity," county Libraries
Director Normal Kula said.
Movie buff and Summerland
Key resident Brian Williams left
the Marathon branch Tuesday
with a number of films. He said
he frequents the libraries and that
they're a good way to save
money over going to national
retailers like Blockbuster Video.
"I've been here two years and
I'm running out of movies,"
Williams said.
The same goes for Marathon
snowbird Sonny Cook, who
checked out several books on
tape and a magazine Tuesday.
She's been coming to the library
for 14 years, she said.
"I come here as often as I can
get here," Cook said. "If I'm
going to buy a book, I'll read it
here first to see if I want it."
"We're seeing more people,
and it's not just the [winter] travel-
ers," said Key Largo senior library
assistant Claudia Moriarty. "A lot
of seniors and other local folks are
making use of the library."
In hard economic times, she
said, the library's free loans of
books, CDs and DVD means
"we're a good value."
"A lot of people come in to
send out job resumes" with the
library's Internet access, Moriarty
said.
American Library Association
President Jim Rettig said
increased library use is cormnon
during an economic downturn,
but an always-expanding depend-
ence on Internet use in everyday

A group of Keys residents watches the inauguration of Barack
Obama Tuesday at the Marathon library. More and more Keys
residents are using public libraries, which is common during
economic downturns.


By the numbers


The following illustrates
how Keys residents' library use
in December 2008 was signifi-
cantly higher than December
2007 despite libraries being
open fewer hours. The County
Commission voted to close-its
five branches on Mondays to
save money.
Circulation in December
showed an increase of 8 percent
over last December, despite a 16
percent decrease in days open -
31,542 items in 2008 compared.
with 29,052 the year before.
+ 307 new borrowers in
Deceniber 2008, 7.7 percent
higher than the 285 new users


life has led to record increases.
"Many companies won't
accept job applications unless
they're accepted online. If you
don't have a computer, where
else can you go?" Rettig said.
"Society is more dependent on it
for a variety of reasons."
Keys libraries offer wireless
connections and -in Marathon,
residents and visitors can often be
found sitting in their cars, or on
benches outside the building,
with laptops. For some, it's an
alternative to a pricey monthly
Internet bill.
Bob Keating from the Boston
area uses the Internet at the Key
Largo library during his family's
month-long winter stay.
"It works out great," Keating
said. "I usually use [the library]
as a babysitter for myself when
my wife is shopping."
"He likes to read about all his


in December 2007.
Computer usage was
down 10 percent from 8.980 to
8,072, a figure significantly
impacted by fewer hours open.
Libraries still reported waiting
lines for computers at most
times.
Overall visitors increased
to 44,113 in December 2008
from 43,168 in 2007. Juvenile
programs also saw a 5 percent
increase in attendance.
Staff answered 3,620 in-
person reference questions last
month, compared with 3,242 in
December 2007, an increase of
11 percent.


sports teams from back home,"
said his wife, Ann.
In August 2008, the American
Library Association reported
Americans visited their libraries
nearly 1.3 billion times and
checked out more than 2 billion
items in the past year a 10 per-
cent increase compared to the last
economic downturn in 2001.
Local numbers from December
2008 versus December 2007 show
a significant increase in visits and
items checked out, despite the
County Commission's decision to
close libraries on Mondays as a
cost saving measure.
Circulation was 8 percent
higher from one year to the next,
despite a 16 percent decrease in
days open. Overall visitors
increased by nearly 1,000, from
43,168 to 44,113, and children's
program enrollment has steadily
increased the past two years.

East Hump closure near


By KEVIN WADLOW
Senior Staff Writer
kwadlow@keynoter.com

Deep-water fishing at an
Underwater sea mount off Long
Key closes Feb. 12 as part of a
federal plan to protect grouper
and snapper populations.
The area called the East
Hump or Unnamed Hump -
covers about 40 square miles in
a rectangular zone where depths
range from about 630 feet to
near 1,000 feet.
The area is approximately 13
miles off Long Key in the
Atlantic.
The East Hump closure is the
only Keys area affected by a new
rule creating eight new marine
protected areas (MPA), covering
a total of about 529 square nauti-
cal miles.
As a Type 2 MPA, surface
trolling is still permitted through
the area.
Kim Iverson, a staffer 'vith
the South Atlantic Fishery
Management Council, said,
"One of the big differences is
that pelagic fishing will be
allowed in these areas. People
can still go trolling for dolphin,


wahoo or mackerel."
Islamorada charter captain
Bill Kelly said the East Hump
deepwater closure is preferable
to the initial closure proposed by
federal managers years ago.
"They wanted to close the
Islamorada Hump, where every-
body goes," Kelly said. "That
would have been crazy."
The ability to continue sur-
face trolling makes the East
Hump rule less onerous, Kelly
said.
"If it works like other areas
where they've done this in the
Bahamas, it could turn into a real
hot spot," he said.
In areas closer to the East
Hump, offshore captains are not
happy.
"I fish out there for deep
drops, and this definitely affects
what I do," said Capt. Lee Lucas
of First Love Charters, based on
Duck Key.
"The government keeps mak-
ing it harder for us to make a liv-
ing and our bills," Lucas said. "I
only fish out there in the spring
and summer but other guys are
there a lot more often."


"The [East Hump] location
includes significant bottom
structure and would protect
deepwater species from directed
harvest," a state report says.
"These areas of the South
Atlantic were chosen because
they feature known spawning
grounds and nursery habitats for
deep-water fish, especially for
snappers and groupers," Jim
Balsiger, an assistant administra-
tor for the National Marine
Fisheries Service, said in a pre-
pared statement.
An estimated 70 species of
deep-water fish could benefit
from the closures, according to
the fishery service.
Deep-water fish "are not
good candidates for catch-and-
release fishing because they suf-
fer trauma when captured and
reeled up from great depths,"
says an agency report. "Some
species, such as snowy grouper,
can live longer than 50 years and
are the most productive spawn-
ers. It is important to protect the
larger fish so they can spawn to
their maximum potential."

Nine autos
burglarized
in Lower Keys
Four Lower Keys teens face
numerous burglary and theft
charges stemming from a crime
spree early Monday morning on
Ramrod Key, the Monroe
County Sheriff's Office says.
Authorities say the four stole
fishing rods and reels, radar
detectors, cell phones, sunglass-
es and more from at least nine
autos.
Charged are 16-year-olds
Carina Morrell of Cudjoe Key,
Tommie Daniels of
Summerland Key and Frank
Randleman of Big Pine Key;
and Vincent Massacci, 18, of
Big Pine Key.
Deputies say they were
called out after a resident told
authorities he saw a dark-col-
ored sport utility vehicle cruis-
ing up and down West Indies
Drive around 3 a.m. and said he
saw kids jumping out .of the
vehicle periodically. He said it
looked like they were trying car
doors to see if they were
unlocked.
Deputy Deborah Ryan and
Sgt. Tom Walker found a red
Ford Explorer in a driveway on
St. Vincent Lane. The hood was
still warm and "a glance. in the
windows revealed lots of items"
that could have come from vehi-


cle burglaries, Deputy Becky
Herrin says.
She says the owner of a bur-
glarized van identified his miss-
ing rods and reels as looking
like those found in the SUV. The
officers began checking around
the area where the SUV was
found and found three of the
teens hiding in a boat parked
behind the house, Herrin says.
The fourth, Randleman, was
later arrested at his Big Pine
house.
Belated arrest
A Marathon teen was arrest-
ed Friday on an auto-burglary
count after his fingerprint was
identified on a document from
the vehicle's glove compart-
ment.
SJames Sprint, 18, is accused
in the Oct. 9 break-in on 23rd
Street in Marathon. It was one
of five burglaries reported in
that area that day.
Herrin says that while
deputies were on the scene tak-
ing reports, a taxi drove by with
Sprint in the back seat. She says
one of the victims pointed him
out, saying she'd seen him in
the area of her vehicle earlier.
Detective Harry Boyden lift-
ed fingerprints from inside the
car and the Florida Department
of Law Enforcement confirmed
they were Sprint's, Herrin said.

Paul Bravo, 27, was arrested
early Sunday morning in
Islamorada on charges of driving
under the influence of alcohol,
possession of cocaine and drug
paraphernalia, and carrying a
concealed firearm.
Bravo was taken into custody
when deputies with the Monroe
County Sheriff's Office saw his
2006 black Infiniti around 3 a.m.
traveling southbound in the


bicycle path at mile marker 81.5.
He reportedly failed field
sobriety exercises so he was
arrested for drunk driving. A
passenger in the car, Adriana
Velasquez, 20, was also arrested
after she was found with mari-
juana, Xanax, a smoking pipe
and a fake driver's license,
Deputy Becky Herrin says.
She said a search of the car
turned up cocaine in the center
console, along with marijuana
residue and three other pipes, a
loaded semi-automatic handgun
and a box of ammunition. Bravo

Tallahassee Judge Kevin
Davey is expected to rule later
this week on whether newly

Court Judge Tegan Slaton will
stay on the bench.
Mary Vanden Brook, a for-
mer court administrator who ran
against Slaton in November and

suit: Either Slaton be ousted
from the bench and she be
installed or the county hold a

Slaton's lead dropped to four.

Keys Opinion


Florida needs to break

sales-tax dependency

Most folks watching Tuesday's inaugural ceremonies in
Washington, D.C., focused on the pageantry and the historic
nature of Barak Obama's swearing in as 44th president of the
United States.
Far from that maddening crowd, however, there were other his-
toric forces at work but not the kind that gets put on display.
In Florida's capitol, Gov. Charlie Crist was hearing from
upset constituents and some disgruntled Democrats who want
him to veto the Legislature's latest spending cuts, rushed
through last week with many Democrats kept on the outside of
House and Senate negotiations.
Critics say lawmakers focused solely on more cuts anoth-
er $1.6 billion instead of dealing with the state's chronic
revenue problems.
Florida relies too much on sales taxes, which are driven by
two key legs of the Sunshine State economy tourism and
construction.
Both tourism and construction are in a major retrenchment
and prospects for recovery don't appear all that good on the
immediate horizon.
Thus, many of the Florida officials attending Tuesday's cere-
monies in Washington are praying for Obama's bailout plan to
help jump-start Florida's economy.
Most of the attention is focused on the billions promised for
infrastructure projects, which in many areas is interpreted as
roads, bridges and some green energy investments, like
improvements to the nation's electrical grids to better tap wind
energy farms in the West.
Here in the Keys, officials hope that infrastructure label will
also be applied to things like wastewater projects. Those defi-
nitely fit the bill for "shovels in the ground," and there are four
sewer projects in the Keys already under way that could poten-
tially qualify.
As badly as we'd welcome some federal money to help off-
set those sewer project costs, it won't do much to revive the
moribund economy here.
While Obama was attending to pre-inaugural duties Monday,
the U.S. Conference of Mayors reported that South Florida is
among three areas likely to experience even higher job losses
this year.
The South Florida region, which includes Monroe County, is
on track to hit an unemployment rate of 8.2 percent by year end
- up from 6.4 percent in November.
That means more businesses likely to close their doors, more
people out of work and even more strain on state and local
government services.
The president called on everyone to get involved to spur eco-
nomic recovery. We hope Florida lawmakers get the message.
We can't survive much more of business as usual in Tallahassee.

It makes economic sense to recycle


EDITOR:
The United Nations Web site says:
"Sustainable development is development
that-meets the needs of the present without
.compromising the ability of future genera-
tions to meet their own needs."
You don't have to go to the U.N. to learn
about sustainability. On Nov. 7 at the GLEE
Keyswide Sustain-Ability Project R4 Summit
in Marathon, we heard about many ways to
promote sustainability in the ways we deal
with waste. We learned that conserving
resources and adopting zero waste-manage-
ment practices are good for the environment
and the economy.
SThe Broward County School District
reported saving $800,000 by instituting recy-
cling in schools. The county itself has saved
$5 million in one year through increasing its
recycling.
Sarasota claims a 50 percent reduction in
solid waste costs since adopting mandatory
recycling. Key West's solid waste bill is
more than $3 million annually and rising. In
17 years, Sarasota has not had to issue one
citation.
In Griffin, Ga., when recycling was intro-
duced, residents were reluctant to participate.
The city instituted a "no bin, no trash pick-
up" policy, which proved successful in get-
ting participation.
Recycle Florida Today says it takes the


support of 16cal politicians to make recycling
successful. They advocate single stream
recycling, which we now have in Key West;
and a public education budget of $1 per -
household, minimum, which is already in the
solid waste budget. The message must be
consistent. Constant bin drives are needed.
Reminders sent with every bill.
The national recycling rate is 32 percent,
the equivalent of 930,000 railcars of coal and
its CO2 equivalent in energy savings.
The recycling/reuse industry sees more
than $236 billion in annual revenues. There
are more than 56,000 recycle/reuse business-
es in the country.
There is money in our trash waiting for us
to do the right thing. In Key West, every
household is charged $2.30 a month to recy-
cle. Everything else costs $66 a ton.to be
hauled to the mainland and incinerated. The
math is in our favor. We already pay for the
right to recycle.
Recycling is easy. You just need to have a
workable system. All we have to do it make
is happen. We need our elected officials to
lead the way.

Mosquito Control can go greener


EDITOR:
The Florida Keys Mosquito Control
District can't find an electric vehicle to suit
its needs, so it purchases Ford F-150s and
Ford Rangers? I wish they would have real-
ized they had more options than that.
Ford F-150s get terrible gas mileage (an
Environmental Protection Agency estimated
15 mpg in the city and 19 on the highway)
and they are real polluters. The EPA reports
that the vehicle emits 11.4 tons of carbon
dioxide a year. Compare that to a hybrid
vehicle that only emits half as much.
OK, so electric trucks aren't ready for
prime time, but is there nothing between a
Ford F-150 and'an electric vehicle? How
about diesel trucks that can use biodiesel, a
far cleaner fuel? The Florida Keys Electric
Cooperative uses biodiesel. The School
District's buses run on biodiesel. The com-
munity college is looking to produce
biodiesel from waste vegetable oil.
Or why not wait a year or two for when a
slew of electric and hybrid cars and trucks
will come on. to the market? After getting .
their knuckles rapped by the incoming
Obama administration, Detroit's automakers
are finally seeing the light and moving to
much more fuel efficient and yes, electric
- vehicles. The entire country looks to cre-
ate a much greener economy.
I invite Mosquito Control to join our local
governments, utilities and other policy mak-
ers to Green Living and Energy Education's


eyswide Sustain-Ability Project
(www.keysglee.com) so they can become
aware of all the options open to them. Green
teams throughout the county stand ready to
help both government and private companies
find ways to reduce their carbon footprints
and stave off the devastating effects of cli-
mate change:
The time to act is now.

College student wants help with nature


EDITOR:
I am working on my senior proj-
ect from Prescott College. I was
born and raised in the Florida Keys
and moved away to attend college
in Arizona. Coming back to fulfill
my commitment to my community
in the Keys, I have decided to cre-
ate an all-native plant habitat as part
of my undergraduate degree.
The project at Sugarloaf School
is titled "More Nature" and has a
specific goal in mind; To teach
environmental education to students
in public schools along with provid-
ing a place where environmental
education can be taught. I hope the
project will catch on to other
schools throughout the Florida Keys
in time to come and spread aware-
ness about our diverse and fragile
ecosystems.
With an all-native plant habitat
used as an outdoor classroom cen-
tered in the heart of the school, stu-
dents will be able to experience
learning in all academic areas
including math, language arts, read-
ing, social studies and science. In


turn, this will enable hands-on and
stimulating learning for all ages.
There will be a variety of plant
species ranging from seagrape, herb
of Grace, Cuban jute, buttonwood,
thatch palm, slash pine and milk-
weed to attract butterflies. A cur-
riculum will be designed for teach-
ers to use at their will and to ensure
proper environmental education.
Paramount to any new initiative
is the support of the community
financially. Support.can be derived
from grants, fundraising, donations
and time. If you feel you can help,
you will be sure to know you are
touching lives of students for gener-
ations to come. You will also be
acknowledged on a recognition
plaque centered in the front of the
habitat.
Please contact me if you are
interested in the project itself or
interested in generously donating
your time, money or materials.

A group of Maryland students visiting Mote Marine Labratory on Summerland Key

Crane Point rebounding nicely


EDITOR:
The board of directors of the Florida
Keys Land and Sea Trust, known locally as
Crane Point Hammock join with me in
extending our sincerest thoughts of grati-
tude and appreciation to our community for
their unprecedented response to Crane
Point's appeal for emergency contributions.
We are humbled by the outpouring of
kindness and generosity shown to Crane
Point Hammock during its very difficult time.
Although we all are faced with fiscal
uncertainties resulting from the global eco-
nomic crisis, hundreds of friends throughout
our community made financial contributions
to Crane Point Hammock to help save what
should be considered one of Marathon's
most valuable community assets. Other
means of support included the addition of
new volunteers who willingly stepped up to
lend helping hands, phone calls, letters and
e-mails filled with encouragement, kind
messages, and ideas and suggestions to help
us get Crane Point back on track.
I would be remiss not to mention John
and Cynthia Morrill of Grants Pro, who
donated hundreds of hours assisting Crane
Point with the preparation of the 8,000-
piece appeal mailing. We are deeply grate-
ful to them for their immense efforts and
continued support.
Our very own unsung hero, Woody
Hodgkins, knocked on the doors of several
of his friends and raised additional funds to
repair our tour trolley just in time for our
visitor season.
As a result of the incredible generosity of
our community and other friends from near


and far, Crane Point is able to move forward
with several new and exciting programs that
will focus on providing opportunities for our
community to enjoy Marathon's own 63 acre
"Walden Pond" complete with Keys tropical
hardwoods and trails; butterfly, bird and fish
habitats; and structures that represent a time
100 years ago.
We believe that now is a great time for
Crane Point to give back to our community
and are deeply committed to sharing this
invaluable sanctuary with our residents.

Smother the smoke

EDITOR:
The Florida Keys probably have
some of the cleanest air in the United
States. Why must it be soiled and dirt-
ied by smoke from chimineas and
wood-burning stoves? With windows
open to enjoy our fresh air now that it
is winter, please let us refrain from
polluting that clean air with unwanted
smoke smell that permeates your
neighbors' homes. Please have some
consideration for your neighbors.

Fire service expand

It could lead


to much lower
insurance rates
By RYAN McCARTHY
rmccarthy@keynoter.com

The city of Marathon is in the
market for an efficiency apart-
ment on Grassy Key with
enough room to park a fire truck.
City Manager Clyde Burnett
plans to establish a Marathon
Fire Rescue presence on Grassy
Key to help improve the city's
lagging fire insurance rating and
potentially save homeowners
thousands of dollars. ,
Grassy residents payer high
premiums for fire insurance than
others because there is no fire
station within five miles of their
homes and many are farther than
1,000 feet from a water source.
"The fact that we're all the
way up there and we pay taxes for
this beautiful firehouse and we
don't even get to use it is totally
ridiculous," said Grassy Key res-
ident Gioia Perkall, referring to
the city's new fire station at
Florida Keys Marathon Airport.


Perkall paid $675 in fire
insurance last year and was
threatened this year with a hike
to $1,600. She sought another
company and secured a rate of
$642 per year because the city
finally installed fire hydrants on
Grassy Key.
Fire Chief William Wagner
said two firefighters from each
crew of six could be placed on
Grassy Key with a rescue vehicle
and a fire truck. He assured the
City Council last week that the
move would not decrease current
service levels.
"Right now the city is a 5/9
rating for fire insurance. A split
rating means trouble with fire
insurance," Wagner said. Ratings
are normally done from 1-10,
with 1 being the best.
"You have to be within five
miles of a station and 1,000 feet
of a recognized water supply. If
not, you are a Class 9, which
means you are basically without
a fire service," Wagner said.
Wagner said Grassy Key has
recently been "saturated," along
with the rest of the city, with fire
hydrants. The next step is to put

hiding

the crew on Grassy Key, he said.
'If we have a presence on
Grassy Key, we'll have ISO
come back and look at the rating;
get it lowered to a 4 or a 3,"
Wagner said. ISO provides risk
management and decision-sup-
port services to.governments and
other industries.
Wagner told the Keynoter
there are too many variables
between buildings to tell what an
average savings on Grassy Key
might be. He did say it will be
"substantial" and pointed out that
it's an annual savings.
Mayor Mike Cinque said rent
for the Fire Rescue apartment
will be roughly $600 to $700 and
the possibility exists that the state
Department of Transportation
will hand over a lot to the city for
a permanent structure.
Councilman Pete Worthington
told the Keynoter he supports a
temporary presence on Grassy
Key, but would rather see the city
and Monroe County work
together on a long-term solution.
He'd like to see an interlocal
agreement that would see
Marathon and the county split
costs and manpower for a fire
station that would serve from
Grassy Key north to Conch Key.
"My main concern is the city
gets the ISO rating they should
have gotten six years ago. They're
paying three times more fire
insurance because they don't have
a fire station within five miles,"
Worthington said of Grassy Key
residents. "We owe it to them to
have a long-term solution."
Vice Mayor Don Vasil also
supported the temporary plan, but
told the Keynoter he'd like to
know the outcome of a possible
consolidation of fire services
between Marathon and
Islamorada. The two municipali-
ties share Wagner as their fire
chief.
"Before I support any large
expense in the future, once the
economy turns around I want to
see a plan which includes the
county to come up with logistics
that provide for efficient fire-
fighting for Conch Key and Duck
Key and the unincorporated areas
between here and Islamorada,"
Vasil said.
Cinque said the city needs to
take action while a long-term
solution is hashed out.
"Sometimes government talks
things to death," he said. "This is
the beginning of a long-term
solution."

Proposed recycle law watered down


Punishment
no longer part
of the equation
By SEAN KINNEY
skinney@keynoter.com

A proposed mandatory recy-
cling law for Key West might
lose its enforcement teeth, at least
for now.
Earlier this month, the Key
West City Commission voted 4-3
for the law, which would have
penalties for not recycling kick in
after a one-year education pro-
gram.
To make the proposed law
more appealing, supporters have
agreed to get rid of the mandato-
ry part.
"There only seems to be one
objection, and that seems to be
concern about enforcement,"
Commissioner'Teri Johnston, the


ordinance sponsor, said on
Tuesday. On that note, she's pro-
posing an amendment to the ordi-
nance that would allow the com-
mission, as a body, to decide
when to start enforcing it, if ever.
The City Commission meets
at 6 p.m. tonight in Old City Hall
on Greene Street. A second read-
ing of the ordinance is on the
agenda.
Under Johnston's amended
plan, commissioners would
receive a monthly report tracking
education efforts and citywide
recycling rates. If they decide as a
whole that progress isn't suffi-
cient, they could decide to take
punitive measures against resi-
dents including imposing fines
and halting trash collection.
Under the first version of the
ordinance, the Code Compliance
Department has the power to
penalize residents who don't


recycle.
At the first reading, Johnston,
Mayor Morgan McPherson and
commissioners Clayton Lopez

Commission
meets-at 6

Hall on

Street.


and Barry Gibson voted in favor;
commissioners Mark Rossi, Bill
Verge and Dan Kolhage voted
against the ordinance.


Johnston said her changes
"added more of a control compo-
nent to the City Commission. We
have hopefully addressed any
objections. People are interested
and people want to do the right
thing. I think the most important
thing is we pass the ordinance."
Former Monroe County
mayor and green advocate
Shirley Freeman said of the
changes, "I think that's the right
way to go. In a year, we'will
know how it's going. Most of the
people who are going to recycle
will do it anyway. We want to
have an extensive, thorough edu-
cation program."
The educational component
includes inserts into utility bills,
television and radio promotion,
and "walk-your-block" commu-
nity interfacing undertaken by
volunteers from Green Living
and Energy Education, the Keep
Key West Clean and Green
Committee and the city's


Ambassadors program.
Freeman said she wasn't con-
fident the ordinance would pass a
second reading if the enforce-
ment portion was included.
"I think some of the commis-
sioners have some real misgiv-
ings about it," she said.
Verge was one of those com-
missioners with misgivings; at
the first reading, Verge spoke out
adamantly against the ordinance
and was met with boos and hisses
from the assembled green-shirted
supporters.
But with the suggested
amendments, Verge said he may
change his vote.
"I don't want to see a recy-
cling ordinance fail," he said.
"I'm still open-minded on this.
Give the people a chance to do
the right thing. I'm just not a
believer in coming out of the box
threatening people. Through
leadership, you can encourage
people to recycle."

City looks to
extend rule for
mini-season
By RYAN McCARTHY
rnccarthy@keynoter.com

The Marathon City Council
wants to get tougher on divers
scouting for lobsters in the days
leading up to and just after the
annual mini-season in July.
The council is scheduled to
hear an ordinance at its Jan. 27
meeting that would make it illegal
for any diver or snorkeler to be in
a canal, marina or within 300 feet
of residential or commercial
shoreline beginning the Friday
prior to the opening of mini-sea-
son, which is always the last
Wednesday and Thursday of July.
The moratorium would extend
until the opening of the commer-
cial lobster season Aug. 6.
Marathon already has a law in
place banning lobstering within

300 feet from shore during mini-
season itself, as do Islamorada
and Monroe County. Key Colony
Beach's 300-foot ban runs from
four days before mini-season
until 10 days after the beginning
of the commercial season.
The only problem is there's
really no one to enforce the law,
Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission
spokesman Bobby Dube said.
"We don't have enough offi-
cers. As a matter of fact, we're 12
officers short in Monroe
County," he said.
Dube said the FWC's con-
straints, combined with the
Sheriff's Office cutting back on
marine officers, make it nearly
impossible to police Keys waters
effectively.
"We can enact all kinds of
laws, but the bottom line is we
don't have the manpower to
enforce it," he said. "We help out
where we can, when we can,.but
they're the ones who came up
with the law and we're the only
ones who have the boats."
Councilwoman Ginger Snead
is sponsoring the ordinance after
the topic was broached at her
town-hall meeting last month.
"I have always believed
there's a strong sentiment that
many visitors take advantage of
the situation by illegally harvest-
ing lobsters prior to the season,"
Vice Mayor Don Vasil said.
"Most locals do respect the legal
season."

Feathers ruffled


Enviros fight to
keep duck pond
at end of runway
By SEAN KINNEY
skinney@keynoter.com

Environmental group Last
Stand says Key West
International Airport needs to
protect ducks and other birds
that hang out at a salt pond at
the end of the runway.
But Peter Horton, director
of Monroe County Airports,
says there are no ducks in
what's called Duck Pond -
and that-there can't be any
ducks there, because of the
threat to aircraft.
"We can't have ducks in
Duck Pond. This is not a fresh-
water pond. If it was, we could
be in a situation like U.S.


Airways," he told the
Keynoter, referring to the U.S.
Air plane that ditched in the
Hudson River in New York
City last week after both
engines were blown out, appar-
ently by large birds.
The airport's plans call for
installing sloped gravel sur-
faces called Engineered
Materials Arresting Systems to
be added to the west end of the
runway, where Duck Pond is
now located. According to the
plan, the pond would be recon-
figured around the fill.
But Last Stand says that this
is no ordinary salt pond and
that it needs to be protected.
"That pond is not connected
to the tidal flow," says Al
Sullivan, president of Last
Stand. "It depends upon rain-
water for its salinity."


As for birds interfering with
aircraft, Sullivan says there's
never been a problem with
birds at Key West
International: "It just- hasn't
happened."
Sullivan says the birds that
visit Duck Pond include
migrating birds, exotic birds
and many rare birds, like teal
ducks and cormorants.
Last Stand first objected to
the airport's plans to fill in
Duck Pond in May of 2007.
The South Florida Water
Management District approved
the county's permits in August
2008.
On Feb. 2, the agency will
hear Last Stand's administra-
tive appeal. The-hearing is
open to the public. It will start
at 9 a.m. in the community
room of the Las Olas Centre, at
450 E. Las Olas Blvd. in Fort
Lauderdale.

Row off Palm Avenue in Key
West say they're pleased city
officials approved a plan to give
the aging facilities an overhaul
- even if it was a compromise.
Original plans called for more

restroom building at the Garrison
Bight. After some discussion,
commissioners agreed on Jan. 6
to get rid of the overhang, which
was expected to cost around
$800,000, and go ahead with the
other projects.

Here's One New Year's Resolution You Should Keep

Free Vision Screening!
January is National Glaucoma Awareness Month. The Friends of the Congressional
Glaucoma Caucus Foundation is offering free glaucoma screenings in the Florida Keys.
Glaucoma is the major cause of preventable blindness in the U.S. Over three million
Americans have glaucoma. It shows no symptoms in its early stages. The good news is
with early diagnosis and medication, it can be readily controlled and vision preserved.
We express our thanks and appreciation to our screening partners the Bascom Palmer
Eye Institute and the faculty, students and staff at the University of Miami School of
Medicine. Special thanks is given to Dr. Richard Lee, Dr. Mark Warner and Robert & Ellie
Lengel for their efforts. We are pleased to offer the following free glaucoma screenings:

Plans are for the Garrison Bight to get a new dock but a new
overhang is on hold.


the electrical systems are a less-
than-adequate patchwork.
"It all went underwater in
[Hurricane] Wilma," Mercurio
said, motioning to Amberjack
Pier, tucked into the city-run
Garrison Bight Marina.
Chad Will, Mercurio's mate,
said, "So far, everything still
works. But eventually someone
is going to get hurt. There are
chunks of concrete falling off
underneath the dock."
"The dock has to be replaced.
It's a liability to the city and res-
idents alike," says
Commissioner Mark Rossi,
whose District II includes the
Garrison Bight.
Rossi pushed for the commis-
sion to approve the original plan
that included a new overhang,
which provides shade to folks
who work on the pier. He says
refurbishing the pier now and the
overhang later would cost more
in the long run.
"The overhang needs to be
replaced, too," Rossi said. As far
as the compromise, "I can live
with it, but in the long run it's
going to cost more."
Charterboat Row has been
around since the 1930s and the
current overhang was built in the
1980s. Structurally, the overhang
is in good shape, but from a prac-
tical standpoint, it's too high to
protect against afternoon sun.
"I think -what the City
Commission failed to realize is
it's not because it's bad; it's
because the original design was
bad," says Capt. Rich Haveland.
In the afternoon, workers "get
just toasted" by the sun, he said.
Haveland said the dock is
workable but improvements
would make it better for the peo-


ple that work there as well as for
visitors.
"You've got to remember, this
dock was underwater in Wilma,"
Haveland said. "Saltwater is
very corrosive." With the pro-
posed face life, "It's going to
make it [Charterboat Row] con-
sistent and far more appealing."
Keeping with the theme of
green living (the commission has
passed on first read an ordinance
mandating residential recycling),
commissioners decided to
replace the proposed decking
material, a tropical hardwood
called ipe, with composite plank-
ing.
"Everybody is in favor of it. It
saves the rainforest," Rossi says.
Mary Lou Lane, a liveaboard
resident of the city's mooring
field at the Garrison Bight, on
the opposite side of Palm Avenue
from Charterboat Row, suggest-
ed the savings from not doing the
overhang right now could be
used to put in new bathrooms for
mooring field tenants.
The Keynoter reported in
October that the city had started
a project to install a manufac-
tured building that would
include new restroom, shower
and laundry facilities for resi-
dents, but ModTech, the building
contractor, went belly up, putting
the project at a standstill.
Gary Bowman, the city's gen-
eral services director, told. the
commission that since October,
not much has changed.
Bowman said the city is in
negotiations with ModTech on a
takeover agreement that would
allow the contractor's bonding
company to complete the proj-
ect; currently, there isn't a set
completion date.

Felony tax charge dropped


By KEVIN WADLOW
Senior Staff Writer
kwadlow@keynoter.com


A felony charge of withhold-
ing state sales taxes filed against
former Islamorada realty manag-
er Cristal Coleman has been
dropped.
And remaining fraud counts
could be dismissed in light of
.payments already made to clients
and customers, said Hal
Schuhmacher, Coleman's attor-
ney.
"There was never any fraud
intended," Schuhmacher said.
"They are trying to resolve the
issues and in most of the cases,
they have already been success-
ful."
Coleman, former proprietor
of Cristal Clear Rentals in
Islamorada, has a Feb. 3 hearing
scheduled before Circuit Court
Judge Luis Garcia at the
Plantation Key courthouse.
Coleman was charged in
October with failure to return
$104,122 in rents owed to vaca-
tion-rental property owners, or


to customers who gave her firm
rental deposits.
"With the exception of a case
involving a former employee,
we have made restitution to all
of the identified persons
involved," Schuhmacher said.
An Islamorada resident, iden-
tified as one of 19 people listed
in an Oct. 8, 2009, affidavit as
being owed money in various
transactions with Cristal Clear
Rentals, confirmed she has been
repaid. She said a third party
made good their initial loss of
approximately $9,000.
The largest reported loss was
made by a Key West property
owner who had three properties
under management by the
Cristal Clear Rentals, and told
state investigators that he was
due $36,054.
On May 6, 2008, Cristal Clear
Rental sent out a letter to its
clients stating the business was
closing because of the economic
downturn, and that there was no
money to issue refunds or pay


owners.
"In closing said business,
Cristal Coleman had no claim to
the funds held by Cristal Clear
Rentals and failed to remit said
funds to the proper owners or
depositors," an investigator for
the Monroe County State
Attorney's Office wrote in an
arrest affidavit.
A separate count of failing to
pay $39,478 collected in state
sales taxes has been dropped,
according to online records post-
ed by the Monroe County Clerk
of the Courts.
Schuhmacher said prosecu-
tion was dropped when pay-
ments were made.
Coleman is out on bond and
has moved to Central Florida.
Cristal Clear Rentals was one
of several Keys businesses creat-
ed by associates of Cay Clubs,
an ambitious property-develop-
ment firm with holdings
throughout theKeys. Cay Clubs
went belly-up and has ceased
operations.
Several civil lawsuits have
been filed against the company.


Tavemier's Cohn dies at 75


By DAVID BALL
dball@keysreporter.com


Tavernier resident David
Cohn, well known in the Keys
arts community, died suddenly
after suffering a heart attack
Thursday night. He was 75.
A funeral is planned in Cohn's
hometown of Chicago later this
week. His wife Nancy held a
local memorial service Monday
at their home.
Nancy Cohn said her husband
was at home with a friend
Thursday when he collapsed on
the floor. He had complained
about pain in his arm earlier in
the evening, she said.
s"David was having his normal
happy day going to this meet-
ing, going to that luncheon, say-
ing hello to friends," she said.
"And then he was gone. But he
did not suffer. He went exactly as
he wanted to go."
Nancy Cohn said she will
remember her husband most for
his kind heart and his affinity for
making people laugh.
"David loved to tell jokes. I
must have heard some of his
jokes 150 or 200 times, and I'd
never get tired of hearing it," she


said. "He was
also very con-
F nected with
people. You
could count on
him if you
were in trouble
or if you were
hurting. Call
COHN David, and he
would listen."
Mr. Cohn was a 30-year resi-
dent of the Upper Keys and was
most known for his work with
local arts and other civic groups,
as well as for his donations to
Mariners Hospital in Tavernier.
He was a Mariners Hospital
"Founder," meaning he donated
more than $50,000.
"David was a great friend of
Mariners Hospital and the Upper
Keys community and will be
dearly missed," Wendy Gentes,
director of development for the
Mariners Hospital Foundation,
said by e-mail.
Ken Sorensen, Mariners'
founding board president and a
fomler state legislator, said he
had lunch with Cohn just two
weeks before his death.


"David was a friend and fel-
low Rotarian. His death was a
surprise," Sorensen said. "David
was a friend to everyone just
one of those nice guys who was
fun to be around and always had
something nice to say about any-
one. He will be missed."
He was a member of the
Islamorada and Key Largo cham-
bers of commerce, the Chicago
Art Institute and the South Florida
Center for the Arts. He was also a
board member of the Rural
Health Network and chaired the
board of the Key Players.
Mr. Cohn served on the
District Advisory Committee IV
of the Tourist Development
Council and was the DAC IV
member of the Cultural
Umbrella. Much of his local
work was with the Florida Keys
Council of the Arts, on which he
served since 1998 in various
.capacities, including board vice
chairman.
Mr. Cohn is survived by his
three daughters, Nancy Cohn's
three children, and 11 grandchil-
dren.
Memorial donations can be
made to the Mariners Hospital
Foundation.

ut the state. The write-down on real estate, he
says, was substantial. So substan-
tial that if Marine (now


Centennial Bank) were not under
Home BancShares, the bank
would right now either be going
under, merging with another
bank, or working with federal
and/or state regulators on some
kind of restructuring.
"I guarantee you if we had our
same loan problems, we probably
wouldn't have survived. We
probably would have merged
with somebody," Padgett told the
Keynoter at the end of last week.
What used to be Marine Bank
now has about $16 million in bad
loans, according to Padgett, most
of them commercial, and some
construction loans. He says the
bank has done little in the way of
residential loans over the years,
serving only as a conduit, arrang-
ing home loans for customers
through Fannie Mae and Freddie
Mac.
Padgett says the bank is now
having to take a hard look at its
lending decisions, and how it has
made them, and has had to "clean
up" some of its problems.
"Our lending habits have
changed significantly," he says.
Padgett is now working on
loan "workouts" to negotiate with
borrowers to try to recover the
bank's money. He ways he's
often seeking the advice of exec-
utives at Home BancShares like
John Allison, chairman and chief
executive officer. And Padgett
has also gotten help sent down
from Arkansas.
Meresa Lankford, whose title
is vice president and credit


administrator, came to the Keys
late last year from Home
BancShares to take over work on
many of the troubled loans in the
Keys. Lankford previously was
vice president and manager of
loan review at Home
BancShares, and also worked in
Little Rock, Ark., as an examiner
for the Office of the Comptroller
of the Currency, part of the U.S.
Department of the. Treasury.
Padgett says the bank has
done autopsiess" on loans that
have gone bad, and has discov-
ered things in the underwriting
process the bank shouldn't have
been doing. He says no longer
will the bank use a second mort-
gage as collateral, because if the
value of the property declines 30
percent, that second mortgage is
stripped of its value.
He says the bank learned in
1991 and 2001 to insist on what's
called .a "personal guarantee," so
that a borrower has a personal
stake in the loan, and cannot sim-
ply walk away, while keeping his
personal financial situation in tact.
Padgett says it's very difficult
to say now whether Marine Bank
would have survived on its own,
facing the kinds of losses it's fac-
ing. But with Home BancShares as
a parent, and the other banks in the
chain strong, he says there should
be no long-term repercussions.
Marine Bank was acquired by
Home BancShares in June of 2005.
What is now Centennial Bank of
Florida makes up about 15-20 per-
cent of Home BancShares, based
in Conway, Ark.

Art rises under the oaks for 26th year


Proceeds go to
church's roof fund
By KEVIN WADLOW
Senior Staff Writer
kwadlow@keynoter.com

Patrons who attended a
Saturday art show without a roof
will help keep a roof over San
Pedro Catholic Church.
The annual Art Under the
Oaks featured more than 100
artists and vendors in its 26th
year at the Tavernier church.
Proceeds from the popular show
go toward church roof repairs
necessitated by winds from pass-
ing hurricanes.
Mild winds Saturday helped
boost visitor turnout, said
Debbie O'Cathey, a member of
the Art Under the Oaks organiz-
ing committee.
"It was the right combination
of weather for us," she said. "It
was a pleasant day but the winds
were just enough to keep boats
off the water. That left people
looking for something to do."
Organizers expect the show
to generate nearly $10,000 for
the church roof repair.
Art Under the Oaks features
an array of offerings, from fine-
art paintings and sculpture to
works more suited for the family
tiki bar. Food vendors, benefit
drawings, live music and other
activities kept show-goers enter-
tained. U.S. Rep. Ileana Ros-
Lehtinen was among those

impairment and even suicide.

Conch scores
22 in victory
over Sabres
By DICK WAGNER
Keynoter Contributor


Chelsea Storr and Shaniya
Watson combined for 39 points
as the Key West High School
girls basketball team defeated
St. Brendan, 59-31, in a District
16-4A game Saturday afternoon
at the Bobby Menendez Gym.
Storr, a junior, scored 22 -
and now has had 20 or more in
nine consecutive games, a feat
no other player boy or girl -
coached by Glenn Hayes Sr. has
achieved. "And I've been
coaching for 12 years," he said.
Watson, a freshman, scored
17 points and had 19 rebounds
as the Conchs improved to 12-3
overall and 6-1 in the district.
Except for Bridget Quevedo,


who made five 3-point shots and
had 17 points, the Sabres, as
befitting a 2-18 team, had little
to offer.
"We lost a lot of kids," said
veteran coach William Healy. "I
got out-recruited by the volley-
ball coach. Seven or eight girls
who would be playing for me
are playing club volleyball."
The Conchs got off to a 15-2
lead in the first quarter, led, 33-
17, at halftime, and then
outscored the Sabres, 22-3 in
the third quarter for a 55-20
lead. At one point, Key West
scored 16 consecutive points.
Alicia Arrazola, who sparked
the Conchs to their first-quarter
lead, had nine points; Kim Jones
had five and Daphne Barnett,
Ja'Taure Mathis and Taryn
Weller each had two.
"I was happy," Hayes said.

Conchs rudderless


Soccer team
is 9-12 after
5-1 defeat
By DICK WAGNER
Keynoter Contributor


A listless Key West High
School boys soccer team lost to
Reagan, 5-1, Saturday afternoon
at Tommy Roberts Memorial
Stadium. It was the Conchs' 12th
16ss of the season.
"It was one of the most dis-
heartening games I have
coached," said coach Jason
Clifford. "There was no spark
anywhere on the field."
The Conchs played without
their best defender, Trevoi
Gordon, who likely is out for the
rest of the season because of a


red card.
Reagan dominated the game
from the beginning, and the
Conchs didn't score until late in
the second half when Zach
Harden headed in a corer kick.
"We're literally a group of 25
role players without a leader,"
Clifford said. "Now that we have
lost Trevoi, we have lost our
identity and our security in the
back, so a lot of the kids are
uneasy and unsure how to con-
trol a game."
The Conchs fell to 9-12-3
overall and 4-8 in the district.
They are averaging fewer than
two goals a game.
"Three goals is the number
you need to win with," Clifford
said. "Two will get you ties, and
one will get you to lose close


games."
Key West, which played
Marathon late Tuesday (the
result was unavailable at press
time), will face Gulliver Prep at
4 this afternoon in Miami.


o W
-ed d "A,


Sardina and Alaina Davis each
had seven.
On Saturday, troubles at the
free throw line kept the Dolphins
from staying in the game against
the JV Conchs. The girls missed
22 free throws and scored just
two points in the second and
third quarters combined.
"We were able to get in the


double, bonus but we couldn't
convert," Hirschauer said.
Hirschauer said the team will
continue to focus on breaking a
press in practice, as well as
developing a pressure defense of
their own to create easy baskets.
The Dolphins (3-8) are sched-
uled to visit Miami Christian
School on Thursday at 4 p.m.

32:00 mark of the first half. He
said a defensive breakdown led to
the goal.
An Orlando player held the
ball around the 18-yard line and
made a short pass to a teammate.
Murphy said the defense hesitat-
ed to attack the ball and it was
chipped over goalie Anthony
D'Ascanio's head.
D'Ascanio made several nice
saves to keep Orlando off the
board, Murphy said, as the
Dolphins picked it up offensively
in the last 10 minutes of the half.
"We ... probably had eight
shots in that time. It was a good
way to end the half even though

we were down," he said.
The Dolphins got some help
from the Crusaders early in the
second half as a misplayed head
ball led to a goal and the 1-1 tie.
Danny Valerdi crossed a ball
from the right side and an
Orlando player headed it into his
own goal as he tried to play it out
of the box.
Murphy said the goal ener-
gized the Dolphins.


"I really thought we were
going to score again, because we
picked it up for the whole second
half," he said. "We basically con-
trolled the ball the majority of the
second half, but we never capital-
ized."
The Dolphins (5-8-1) were
scheduled to visit county rival
Key West High School Tuesday.
Results were not available at
press time.


Conchs' turnaround is 'amazing'


KEY WEST / From 20

."Everybody had a lot of playing
time in a district game. We ran
the offense well and played
good pressure defense."
As Healy gathered up equip-


ment afterward, he remembered
how easily his team beat the
Conchs in recent seasons.
"Their turnaround has been
amazing," he said. "Glenn
Hayes is a good coach, and his
girls learn quickly."
Asked to compare Key West


with Monsignor Pace, which
defeated the Conchs in
December and leads them in the
district standing, Healy said,
"Pace is more aggressive defen-
sively, but Key West has better
shooters. If [the Conchs] can
handle Pace's pressure, they
have a good chance of win-
ning."
If the Conchs get another
crack at Pace, it is expected to
be on Pace's court in the title
game of the district tournament
in February.

was in a zone and under control
- he played with confidence,"
Davis said.
The night, though, belonged
to Valdez. After he hit his 37th
foul shot in a row with five sec-
onds left in the third quarter -
and public-address announcer
Wayne Goldstein had informed
the crowd of the record the
gym exploded in cheers. St.
Brendan's players congratulated
Valdez, then went out and tried
to steal the game.
Down once by 20 points, the
Sabres cut the lead to 57-50, and
it seemed as if the Conchs might
blow another fourth-quarter
lead.
But Annulysse made a free
throw, hit a jumper and drove for
a layup to get the lead back to


62-50, and the Conchs answered
every Sabre challenge the rest of
the way. "We stayed calm at the
end," said Davis, whose team
improved to 8-8 overall and 2-4
in district.
Valdez wasn't the only Conch
hot from the line. The team was
25 for 27, and in the last two
home games is 54 for 57 (94.7
percent)
Key West had only seven
players available for the game
- Christian Stewart didn't play
because of disciplinary reasons
and Arthur Adams, the team's
leading rebounder and shot
blocker, apparently is out for the
season because of grades.
The Conchs will host Fort
Myers at 7:30 p.m. Friday, with
Valdez trying to extend his
streak and the Conchs trying to
win a ninth game in a season for
the first time since Davis took
over in 2005.

Keys Sports & Outdoors

Just as Island Christian
School viewed a soccer tie with
Marathon High School as a vic-
tory earlier this season, Dolphins
girls coach Lynn Landry said his
team was thrilled to tie Key West
High School Saturday.
The Conchs had several
t injuries, Landry said, but the
Dolphins traditionally have little
success against their Keys rival.
The girls played to a 1-1 tie
after the Conchs scored a late
goal to even the score.
"For us, it was a great team
effort," Landry said. The team


finished their regular season at
8-6-2.
Marathon took the lead just
six minutes into the game, which
boosted the team's confidence
early, Landry said.
Eighth-grader Katie Landry
avoided defensive pressure and
crossed a ball from right to left
for Jasmine DeLaCruz, who
made a move and beat the goalie
to the bottom left comer of the
net.
"That helped a bunch; what
hurt us was we didn't put any
more in the goal," coach Landry
said. "We had five shots on goal
and they had one in the first half.
The shots we had were very
good, but we didn't put them in."
Key West outshot Marathon
in the second half, 7-3, and the
Dolphins had 11 goal kicks in
the second half alone.
"They had the ball on our end
of the field quite a bit," Landry
said.
The Dolphins had trouble
containing senior Krizzie Menez
in the second half and she broke
through with a goal in the clos-
ing minutes to tie the game.


Menez came free across the 18-
yard box and put a slow roller by
goalie Julietta Pezzella for her
27th goal of the season.
"After that, they really started
pressing us hard and they
brought a few more girls up into
the attacking third. We didn't
adjust well," Landry said.
Key West narrowly missed
taking the lead when another
slow roller got by Dolphin
goalie Kelley Struyf, hit the post
and bounced right back to her
with less than two minutes
remaining. Struyf replaced
Pezzella, who was injured while
going after a loose ball.
Landry said he hopes the
Dolphins' tough second-half
schedule has prepared them for
the district tournament. The girls
finished up 0-6-2 after an 8-0
start.
"We didn't have as good a
record as we did last year, but
that's not as important as the
improvement we've shown," he
said.
The girls were scheduled to
play Island Christian School in
the district tournament Tuesday.
Results were not available at
press time.

Lady Canes upset

Palmer Trinity


By KEVIN WADLOW
Senior Staff Writer
kwadlow@keynoter.com


A season of progress
showed Saturday as the Coral
Shores girls basketball team
pulled off an overtime upset
of Palmer Trinity, 46-41.
"That was a good turn-
around game," said
Hurricane head coach Dan
Smith. "I'm sure Palmer was
expecting to beat us easily,
but we've been playing com-
petitive basketball for the last
few games."
Coral Shores (3-9) finish-
es its season this week with
home games at 4 p.m. today
against Carrollton and 4 p.m.
TFriday against Marathon
High School. The Canes go
on the road to Marathon for
Monday's finale.
"All three of these games
are winnable," Smith said.
"Now we have to go out and
do it."
Confidence gained in last
week's well-played loss to
district leader Gulliver Prep
helped the Lady Canes catch
Palmer's Falcons in the
fourth quarter in a game at
Palmer.
"We were behind for most


of the game but had a good
fourth quarter," Smith said.
Sophomore forward
Latrice Johnson scored 29
points for Coral Shores,
including six in the come-
back rally.
Senior Lauren Sanchez
scored four critical points in
the fourth as regulation
ended at 37-37.
The Hurricane defense,
led by point guard Cassandra
Howard, shut down the
Falcons in overtime.
"Cassandra had a great
game," said the coach.
"I can't think of a team
I've coached that has been
more willing to always prac-
tice hard and put out the
effort in games," Smith said.
"Whether we can continue to
improve our basketball skills
remains to be seen."
Coral Shores likely will.
play Maritime and Science
Technology Academy in the
District 16-3A Tournament
opener on Feb. 4 for the right
to advance to the district
semifinals. All tournament
games will be played at

Swam Guides Ball
hits backcountry

The annual Swamp
Guides Ball backcountry
fishing tournament, set for
Jan. 30 and 31 in Islamorada,
is all about fun.
The tournament allows
backcountry guides to trade
their push poles for fishing
poles for one day of competi-
tive angling that targets bone-.
fish, redfish and snook. Event
proceeds benefit the Don
Hawley Foundation, a non-
profit corporation that raises
money to help fishing guides
who can't work because of
serious injury or illness.
Registration and a kickoff
party with a silent auction
are set for Jan. 30 beginning
at 5 p.m. at the Lorelei, mile
marker 82. The rules meet-
ing starts at 6 p.m. with
cocktails and hors d'oeuvres.
There is also a silent auc-
tion featuring fishing and
boating gear, artwork and
guided fishing trips.
Fishing is to begin at 7
a.m. Jan 31. Lines-out is to
be called at 3 p.m. and final
check-in with the scorekeeper
is set for 5 p.m. There is no
requirement to hire a profes-
sional guide to compete, and
all anglers are welcome to
participate in the tournament.
All fish must be a mini-
mum of 20 inches long to
count for points and all must
be released unharmed.
Final positions for awards
are to be based on the high-
est point totals of two-angler
teams that release all three
species. If no team catches
all three species, the team
with the most points after
releasing two species
becomes the winner. If no
team catches two species, the
awards are to be given based
on point totals from releasing
one species. Bonefish, red-
fish and snook count for 100
points each.
Entry fee is $200 per two-
angler team. To enter, call
Terry or Rusty Albury at
664-3862 or send an e-mail
to talbury@aol.com.


Brave the elements


Man, is it cold up north 1
look at the pictures of the people
and they all resemble the Stay
Puft Marshmallow Man.
Those who have escaped and
traveled to the end of Florida -
and finally thawed out about the
time they passed the Jewfish
Creek Bridge think our bad
days are wonderful.
But while the areas "back
home" are frozen solid, we, too,
have experienced a taste of the
cold; the winds more so than the
temperatures have caused an
unwanted break in fishing for
most, although those who know
where to go have had a good
week.
Working the bridge channels
with a strong crosswind vs. the
current can cause some uncom-
fortable fishing conditions in the
open passes, but using the banks
and shoals to protect you from
the seas can be advantageous. For
that matter, using the islands
themselves for protection from
direct winds is one of the best
options you have for getting out
to some good fishing, even
though it may not be on the reef
or at one of you favorite deep-
water spots.
There are plenty of good action
spots along the belly of the islands
that will give you the opportunity
to catch some nice dinner while
having a good time comfortably.
You don't even have to go all the
way to Hawk Channel to find this
type of fishing. There are plenty
of humps and bumps within a mile
of shore that hold more fish than
you may realize. On those real bad
days, the channels and creeks can
provide you enough action to keep
you from going into fishing with-
drawals.
Florida Bay is alive with action.
It's that one sanctuary that you can
run to and fish in almost any wind
condition and still have tons of
action. All of the banks and shoals,
along with the numerous islands,
provide many areas of sanctuary
and some very nice fishing.
Knowing where to go and how
to rig up is the main topic of dis-
cussion of this week's free fishing
seminar at our Marine Educational
Center, 3740 Overseas Highway,
at 6 p.m. Sunday.
The bay waters are so full of
mackerel right now that anglers
have been flat-out spoiled. It's
not too many times or in too
many places where you ean go

GIANT HAUL: Chris Kringel of Key Colony Beach and
Colorado caught this 318-pound swordfish Dec. 21 fishing

od you are
fishing.
This is the
case for
those that
venture
seven or
more miles
north of the
islands.
so thick that


working a bait beneath them has
been somewhat of a challenge.
Snapper have been very good,
as well, in shallows and the open
bay. Cobia have also been show-
ing up in good numbers. And I've
had several reports of big redfish
- over 20 pounds the past
couple of weeks in the northeast-
ern portion of the bay.
As for kingfish, prior to all of
the winds last week, they were
really coming into their own. We
have started to see numerous
anglers with 40-pound-plus fish
in their boxes. These smokers are
quite the catch. And they are
called smokers because not only
are they very good fish to smoke,
but when one that big hits your
line, odds are your reel will be
smoking, too. If you want to
practice catching the big ones,
just go to the highway and hook a
passing Buick.


Along the edge of the reef out
about five miles, activity has been
mixed. There have been some
very nice tunas, scattered wahoo
and a nice showing of some
decent dolphin. It's a good thing
they don't read the books stating
they're not supposed to be here in
any numbers this time of year,
because several anglers have
actually found their limit in the 5-
pound range in recent weeks.
Sailfish have also been quite
good in the recent winds; sails
like the wind to feed. Charter and
larger private boats have been
doing well while smaller boats
may have needed seat belts to
keep the anglers aboard.
We're on the darkening phase
of the moon now, so there should
be no excuses for not fishing
along the reef and Hawk
Channel, weather permitting.
Kings and mackerel abound
throughout and 'tails are just
about everywhere, from the deep
waters tothe patches and even in
the Hawk. It all looks awesome
oq the ocean side of the islands.
Have a pitch bait ready to go
at any time because you never
know what's going to pop up
alongside of you this time or year,
not only trolling but even at
anchor on the.oceanside.
