Bridge


closing


tonight

No autos allowed
for up'to four
hours straight
By RYAN McCARTHY
rmccarthy@keynoter.com

Get ready for some long
waits.
The Seven Mile Bridge in
Marathon will be closed this
evening from 8 p.m. to midnight
- and partially closed up until 6
a.m. - so contractors can do
rehab work on several tendons
holding the bridge together.
Roland Rodriguez, senior
project engineer for Metric
Engineering, said the work is part
of standard maintenance per-
formed by the state Department of
Transportation each year on 'the
famous span, which opened in
1982. Metric does oversight and -
consulting for DOT in the Keys.
But the closure of the Keys'
longest bridge for such a long
time is sure to inconvenience
numerous people, from those in
the Lower Keys who have flights
scheduled on the mainland
tonight or early Thursday morn-
ing, to those who just work odd
hours and need to get to work.
Then there's the possibility of
someone who has a medical
emergency and needs to be trans-
ported over the bridge.
"The. actual total closure .is
just for that short period of time,
from 8 to midnight," Deputy
Monroe County Chief Gary
Boswell said. "Any patients who
have to make it through that sim-
ply will have to be flown out."
However, he said numerous
agencies have planned for. the
closure and that "things should
go off without a hitch."
Rodriguez said the risk of sig-

McClatchy-Tribune


The U.S. Army is investigat-
ing the death' Friday of a Fort
Bragg soldier at the Army
Special Forces Underwater
Operations School in Key West.
Staff Sgt. Mark M. Maierson,
27, died during training at the
school. He was an engineer ser-
geant in the 3rd Battalion of the
7th Special Forces Group and
had served in Afghanistan.
The investigation is being
conducted by the John F.
Kennedy Special Warfare Center


and School and the Combat
Readiness Center of Fort
Rucker, Ala., said Ben Abel, a
spokesman for the JFK center.
Maierson lost consciousness
during training in the school's
pool. Medical personnel who
were there during the training
provided immediate treatment
and transported the soldier to
Lower Keys Medical Center on
Stock Island, where he was pro-
nounced dead.
Maierson, a native of


Littleton, Colo., entered the
Army in ,September 2006 as a
Special Forces trainee.
After basic and advanced
individual training at Fort
Benning, Ga., he was assigned to
the John F. Kennedy Special
Warfare Center and School. He
began the Special Forces
Qualification Course in 2007
and received the green beret in
April 2008.
He is survived by his mother
Rose; father Mark Maierson;
and brother Josh, all of Littleton.

state auditors.
Monique Acevedo resigned
two weeks ago when School
Board members learned she made
several personal purchases with
her Bank of America Visa card.
As adult education coordina-
tor, Acevedo oversaw various
programs including-adult literacy,
English for speakers of other lan-
guages, GED preparation, cos-
metology, fashion design and
culinary, as well worked with the
Monroe Association for Retarded
Citizens.
Her monthly credit card trans-
actions include thousands of dol-
lars worth of "supplies" for these
programs - some purchased at
more than a dozen stores during a
single day.
However, individual receipts
for these transactions show items
like $382 for a floral print duvet,
pillow shams and silk pillows at
Brocade Home on Aug. 23,2008;
$563 .for curtains, pillows, a rug,
lamp and clothes hamper at JC
Penny on Sept. 1,2008; and $307
for a skin masque, Advil and
other drugs, men's T-shirts, hats,
pants and other items at Kmart on
Nov. 4, 2008.
Receipts for similar items -
including hundreds of dollars in
groceries, airline tickets and large
DVD box sets - date back to
2007, although records of how
those transactionswere reported
to the district are not available.
There's no, indication anyone
else used her credit card.

nificant damage to the bridge dur-
ing the closure is "minimal to
none."
The Seven Mile Bridge is seg-
mental, Rodriguez explained,
with a system of six stranded
metal tendons holding each por-
tion of the bridge in place.
Tendons in three of the 135-foot
segments need replacing, and that
is what contractor The Freyssinet
Group will be doing.
"The bridge is hollow within
and we can access the bridge
through access hatches, so all the
workmen are in the bridge. All
the work is done inside the
bridge," Rodriguez said.
He said the bridge won't be
cut into at any time. There is a 5-
foot-8-inch tall space inside .the
bridge and the tendons are locat-
ed there.
Rodriguez said each tendon
has 21 strands forming rope-like

A Key West man, upset that
his girlfriend was laid off from
her part-time teller job at First

the bank with an AK-47 assault

Cape Air


likely to


return
By RYAN McCARTHY
rmccarthy@keynoter.com

Florida Keys Marathon
Airport customers are expected
to hear some good news for a
change when Cape Air officials
visit with the Monroe County
Commission today.
Cape Air Chief Executive
Officer Dan Wolf and other offi-
cials plan to announce they want
to renew service to Fort Myers
during next year's tourist sea-
son. Cape Air Vice President of
Planning Andrew Bonney will
be among the presenters.
"We've been very happy with
the operation in Marathon. The
response in the community has
been great," he said.
Cape Air began flying
Continental Connection flights
to Fort Myers' Southwest
Florida International Airport on
Dec. 19. The final flight for this
season is planned for April 29.
Bonney said Cape Air has
had a 41 occupancy rate on the
route since December - a vic-
tory for a small airline in a small
market.
"For a new and a seasonal
service, we're very pleased," he
said. "You have to educate the
public that it's there. The first
year or two is an uphill push get-
ting out there."
According to Airport
Manager Reggie Paros, Cape
Air flew 72 "legs" to and from
Fort Myers in the shortened
month of December, with 139
paying passengers. That aver-
ages out to 1.93 customers per
flight.
In January, Cape Air flew
181 flights and had 418 paying
passengers. That equates to 2.31
passengers per flight.
February was the best month
by far, with 164 flights and 560
paying passengers. That comes
out to 3.41 passengers per flight.
Cape Air flies nine-passenger
Cessnas. When it signed up for
Marathon, it said filling six of
the nine seats on each flight
would be a break-even deal.
However; 'Cape Air's deal
with Monroe'- County includes
up to $25I0,0i10 in revenue guar--
antees. '

Cape Air books new

season for Marathon

Residents and business owners in the Middle Keys will get
some good news today at the County Commission meeting in
Marathon.
Officials from Cape Air plan to report on their inaugural sea-
son serving Florida Keys Marathon Airport with connections to
Southwest Florida International Airport in Fort Myers.
The first flights made their debut Dec. 19.
In today's Keynoter, Marathon Airport Manager Reggie
Paros reports February has been the best month so far, with 560
passengers taking advantage of the direct-connect link to Fort
Myers.
That allows air passengers to trade the convenience of
Marathon departures with free parking and access to a wide
variety of air carriers in Fort Myers.
Cape Air flies nine-passenger Cessnas, which fits a national
pattern as more airline passengers find themselves using these
smaller, more efficient planes to make connections to big city
airports.
The deal with Cape Air came with a revenue guarantee of up
to $250,000. The county provided half and the balance came
from a Community Air Service Initiative headed by former
County Commissioner David Rice.
The best news planned in today's report to the commission
comes from Cape Air, which will advise the county that start-
up numbers are encouraging enough to book a repeat of air
service for next season.
As this space urged back in December, for Cape Air to suc-
ceed, the company needs to see paying passengers who find the
convenience factor of flying into Marathon to be unbeatable.
We seem to have passed the initial test, and that's a good
omen for our tourist-based economy.

Engineering marvel gets tune-up tonight

The Keynoter published a special section on the opening of
the "new" Seven Mile Bridge back in May 1982.
It was big news, the culmination of an eight-year, $200 mil-
lion project to rebuild bridges linking the Florida Keys to the
rest of the world. At the time, it was described as "one of the
largest projects the state of Florida has ever mounted."
Tonight, all traffic will cease for four hours as repairs are
made. Not to worry, say the engineers. We say, it's still one of
the world's great marvels, changing the way bridges are built
around the world.
Not bad being a witness to history this up close and personal.

Credit card purchase couldn't have been a mistake


EDITOR:
Everyone makes mistakes; it is human nature.
I have found myself trying to pay for gas .with a
discount card, not realizing I pulled that out
instead of my credit card. Or when I go online to
pay a bill and I pull out the wrong card that I use
to pay my bills, I see that that card is the wrong
one, as it looks nothing like the other card, so I
put it back and get the right one.
However, there have been times when I have
had my mother's credit card still in my wallet
from when I was with her the night before and
have pulled it out, but realized that it was not the
correct card, nor was it even mine, and quickly
put it back in my wallet and used my card.
So how can someone say that they "accidental-
ly" used the School District's credit card to make
a personal purchase? When you are buying an air-
line ticket from home, you have to pull out the
card, type in the number, type in the name. Or if it
is a business card, you type in the company name.
If you bought the tickets at the counter, I can
see a simple mistake, as you may be preoccupied
talking to the person at the desk. It still doesn't


go in favor for former School District Adult
Education Coordinator Monique Acevedo, as she
was getting a lower rate for the purchases she
made.
And for her husband, Superintendent Randy
Acevedo, to actually state that a former superin-
tendent used to pay his bar tabs with the district
card is just beyond me.
I agree with board member Steve
Pribramsky's recommendation of not accepting
Mrs. Acevedo's resignation and firing her with
prejudice, but I believe there should be a suspen-
sion in place first pending further investigation.
Like I said, everyone makes mistakes and if it
turned out to be an honest mistake, then so be it.
However, acknowledging purchases with the card
with intent to pay it back does not account for a
mistake. Allowing someone to just simply resign
and become out of sight and out of mind is not
reality. That is grounds for termination and one
should not be allowed to collect district benefits
for committing an offense.

Shriners do more than wear funny hats


EDITOR:
I have just recently completed a long but very
rewarding journey to realize my dream of
becoming a Shriner. I am now a member of the
Marathon Shrine Club, a wonderful organization
to say the least.
When I mentioned this to my friends and fam-
ily, some of them good-naturedly remarked that
now I get to wear one of those funny hats and
drive those cute little cars and scooters in
parades. I said yes I can, and I proudly will, if it
helps just one severely burned or crippled child
get the special medical care the 22 Shriners' hos-
pitals across the country provides, at no cost to
that child or his or her family.
I would even hop across the Seven Mile Bridge
on a pogo stick wearing nothing but a pink Speedo
if that's what it took to help these children.
Since 1922, Shriners hospitals have given care
to more than 865,000 children with burns, spinal
cord injuries, orthopedic conditions and cleft lips
and palates, totally free of charge.
Putting the magnitude of it all into perspec-
tive, just in 2008 alone, it cost around $2.263
million each and every day to provide the best
pediatric care available to those children. That
computes to $26.19 every second.
Where does all that money come from? It

Locals help locals work
EDITOR:
Bettye and Jim Chaplin are about to open
Chappy's Restaurant. The restaurant is beautiful
and the view breathtaking. I want to thank them
for hiring only locals or mostly local contractors
to do the work. What a wonderful boost to our
local economy.
We wish them large parties, a full register,
good help and, most of all, memories to see their
- dream come true.
S .Miarathon it -
Marathon-


comes from those guys wearing the funny hats,
driving those crazy little cars and dressing up as
clowns, asking for donations to raise money for
the Shriners' hospitals so those children can con-
tinue to receive the special care they desperately
need and so richly deserve.
I would be remiss if I failed to mention the
many spouses of the Shriners here in Marathon,
the Keyettes, who have their own fundraisers to
benefit the children's care. Their efforts are
invaluable and much appreciated.
So in closing, I would like to say the next time
you see a bunch of guys in those funny hats stand-
ing in traffic in the hot sun asking for donations,
or cooking pancakes and sausages over a hot grid-
dle at some function, maybe give them a smile or
a pat on the back and thank them for all they do.
Moreover, the next time you see me out and
about, you can thank me for not hopping across
the Seven Mile Bridge in a pink Speedo.
God bless my Shrine brothers and those love-
ly ladies of the Keyettes.

Break-in suspect facing more charges


Three counts
for burglaries
added on Monday
Keynoter Staff

Yet more charges were
added Monday in what author-
ities call a one-man crime
spree in the Lower Keys.
Billy Welch, 47, was origi-
nally charged with felony bur-
glary on Feb. 26 -and 27. On


Saturday,
. four more
counts of
. burglary and
six more of
'� j theft were
added.
Then on
Monday,
WELCH another bur-
glary count,
another theft charge and a
felony charge of vandalizing a


house of worship were added.
Detectives say there were
some 40 thefts and break-ins
in the Big Pine Key area
between Jan. 1 and the time of
Welch's February arrests.
Since then - he's been in jail
ever since - only a few such
crimes have been reported in
the area, some that took place
before his arrest, they say.
The crimes involving the
charges added Saturday, to
which Welch reportedly
admitted guilt:


Feds bust Keys man for sex travel


+ Three separate thefts on
Feb. 24 from the Royal Palms
Trailer Park.
Welch stole a bicycle - but
said he abandoned it a little
after stealing it when he heard
what sounded like police offi-
cers on bicycles chasing him.
It was indeed detectives on
bikes, patrolling the area for
the criminal preying on Big
Pine residents, authorities say.
They chased Welch but failed
to catch him that night.
Also that day at Royal
Palms, a boat was burglarized
and a GPS, depth finder, med-
ications and glasses were
stolen; and a toolbox was


stolen from an auto.
* A 25 horsepower motor
was taken from a boat at the
Breezy Pines Trailer Park on
Feb. 22; the motor's owner
later found it in a patch of
weeds.
* . An auto burglary
occurred on Sands Road some-
time between Feb. 7 and 10.
Stolen were a GPS, cordless
razor, CDs and a Solitaire
game.
* .Biosphere Import Car
Service on Quail Roost Drive
was broken into on Feb. 5.
Among items stolen were a
camera.


Soderman caught
before crossing
Mexican border
By RYAN McCARTHY
rmccarthy@keynoter.com .

Marathon resident Charles
Soderman has been fired by the
Florida Keys Mosquito Control
District in the wake of his
March 10 arrest on federal "sex
tourism" charges.
Soderman was arrested in
Arizona on one count of travel
with intent to engage in sex with
a juvenile. The 30-year-old
reportedly attempted to travel to
Mexico to have sex with under-
age children.
District spokeswoman
Colleen Fitzsimmons said only
that Soderman worked as an
information technology techni-
cian for Mosquito Control and
that his position will soon be
filled.
"It's an ongoing investiga-
tion and we are not at liberty to
make any comments,"


Fitzsimmons said. District
Director Ed Fussell was
unavailable to comment on
Soderman Tuesday.
According to federal court
documents, Soderman used the
screen name "Chuck S" to con-
tact a federal agent - Soderman
thought the agent actually was
the operator of a Mexico sex-
tourism business - in March
2008 via Yahoo instant messag-
ing. Soderman wrote that he had
an interest in sex acts with
minor-aged children in Mexico.
On July 11, 2008, Soderman
allegedly told the undercover
agent - U.S. Immigration and
Customs Enforcement Senior
Special Agent Henry Johnson -
that he was interested in a child
sex tour in September 2008.
Then on Feb. 13, Soderman
advised the agent - that he
received a tour application and
planned to travel to Mexico
March 9 - just a little over a
week ago.
Soderman reportedly indicat-
ed a preference for boys ages 6

Critical Concern could remain until 2015


By RYAN McCARTHY
rmccarthy@keynoter.com

It's possible the day when the
Florida Keys are no longer desig-
nated an Area of Critical State
Concern is much farther off than
expected.
According to language in a
proposal put on today's Monroe
County Commission agenda by
Mayor George Neugent, the


county would have to wait at least
another six years before the state
Cabinet removes the Critical
Concern designation.
That's because the county has-
n't made enough progress in
installing central sewer systems
that meet state-mandated
advanced wastewater standards.
If Neugent gets the rest of the


commission's OK, he would take
the county's resolution to
Tallahassee and lobby the Cabinet
officials to extend the designation.
"I'm going to go to some of
the decision makers to explain
that the sand is out of the hour
glass and you're not offering us
any help to address this unfunded
mandate," Neugent said.
Under Critical Concern, the
state has oversight of nearly all
development in the Keys. But
also under the designation, at
least some state money to help
protect the environment that
might not otherwise flow to
Monroe County does.
The Cabinet is scheduled to
decide whether to lift Critical
Concern this coming October.


Neugent's plan is to extend that to
October 2015.
Neugent said he, County
Administrator Roman 'Gastesi,
Growth Management Director
Drew Trivette and several other
commissioners will make a trip to
Tallahassee Monday to "explain
the dilemma we find ourselves in."
Neugent said a scheduled
appearance before Gov. Crist and
the Cabinet on Tuesday has been
postponed, but that the county
contingent will still visit with
state officials about sewer issues.
Neugent said he might pull his
plan off today's commission
agenda to further tweak language
in it, but that it's clear the com-
mission is in favor of remaining
an Area of Critical State Concern.


"We all support extending that
timeline until we're through with
our work program. We will not be
de-designated as it sits right
now," he said.
Each year, a detailed, written
report of progress made on such
things as sewer installation and
buying environmentally sensitive
land for conservation must be
submitted to the state Department
of Community Affairs. DCA then
uses that report to recommend to
the Cabinet whether the county is
ready for de-designation.
"I think the position of the
governor and Cabinet is that we
will not be considered for de-des-
ignation until -we make signifi-
cant progress," Neugent said.


Duck Tours trial ongoing


By SEAN KINNEY
skinney@keynoter.com


Testimony is expected to con-
tinue today in a case in which the
city of Key West stands to lose a
multimillion-dollar judgment.
Monday and Tuesday, visiting
Judge Howard Harrison heard
testimony in Monroe County
Circuit Court in the case of Duck
Tours Seafari, which successfully
sued the city after alleging city
rules forced it out of business.
Duck Tours ran a land and
water sightseeing operation using


rehabbed World War II amphibi-
ous vessels in Key West in the
mid- 1990s.
A jury previously decided the
city was guilty of running Duck
Tours out of business using a rule
saying they couldn't operate
within 1,000 feet of Historic
Tours of America, which runs the
Conch Tour Train and Old Town
Trolley, pickup or drop-off
points, sales kiosks, passenger
depots or retail outlets.
The city was ordered to pay

$13.5 million but appealed, saying
that figure is much higher than
actual damages to Duck Tours. So
the current jury 'is charged with
recalculating the damages to find
the true dollar figure.
Testimony this week from a
Duck Tours financial expert was
that if the company used all of
its seven vehicles, only four of
which were used at the time,
then their annual passenger
capacity was 250,000 people.
This testimony is supposed to
help the judge and jury decide
how much money Duck Tours is
owed by the city of Key West.
But counsel for the city sug-
gested, through a series of math-
ematical calculations, that in
order for Duck Tours to compete
with HTA in February 1995,
when HTA generated just over
14 percent of its annual passen-
ger business, then all seven
Duck Tours vehicles would have
to run every day for nearly 10
hours.
Impossible, the city's counsel
said.
That 10 hours doesn't
include days when it's raining or
there is a marine advisory,
which would exclude Duck
Tours from operating on the
water due to Coast Guard-man-
dated rules.
John Murphy, who owned
Duck Tours, took the stand on
Monday.
The city's restraints, Murphy
said, forced him' to close shop
and to forget about his future
plans to expand his business in
Key West.

Cigarette may have caused fire


Alarm failed
at Sheraton
on Roosevelt
By SEAN KINNEY
skinney@keynoter.com


In what Key West Fire
Marshal Michael Davila termed
"bizarre" irony, a fire at the
Sheraton Suites on Saturday actu-
ally melted part of the fire alarm
system, causing an alarm failure.
The fire broke out around 11
a.m. underneath a building that
faced South Roosevelt
Boulevard.
"We could not find a cause,"
Davila said. "We're leaning
towards a discarded cigarette,
although we didn't find any evi-
dence."
Davila said he thinks the fire
started on a pile of screen mesh
that hotel work crews were


installing to block the space
underneath the building. The fire
then spread up the front of the
building, jumping from balcony
to balcony.
Guests on the scene reported
that they did not hear a fire alarm
go off in the affected building.
"It's almost bizarre," Davila
said "The alarm system, unfortu-
nately, in the front portion of the
building where the fire was -
the fire melted some of the sys-
tem. The horn strobes were not
working to notify the guests."
Davila said his office certified
the fire alarm system, installed
and serviced by local company
Protection Plus, on Feb. 13.
Davila said fire alarms were
activated in nearby buildings as
well as the hotel lobby.
Six rooms were damaged and
another has water damage from
the sprinkler system, authorities


said.
This was the second hotel fire
in the Keys in two and a half
months.
The high-end Cheeca Lodge


Guests on
the scene
reported that
they did not
hear a fire
alarm go off
in the affected
building.


Resort and Spa in Islamorada
remains shut indefinitely follow-
ing a New Year's Eve fire in the
resort's main building. Fire offi-


cials there say it appears a wind-
blown ember from a cigarette or
fireworks acted as tinder for a
thatched roof.
The Sheraton Suites fire came
a week after another high-profile
fire in the Southernmost City.
On March 8 around 10 p.m.
fire broke out in the Duval Street
building tucked between
Margaritaville and the historic
San Carlos Institute. It destroyed
Le Creperie, Montage and the
America Royal Arts gallery.
"The Duval Street fire, again,
we haven't gotten an official
cause," Davila said.
"We're leaning toward an
electrical failure," he said.
That fire is also being investi-
gated by state fire marshals and
Davila said they took samples
from the scene that are undergo-
ing laboratory analysis. Results
are pending.
. "We may not have that for
quite some time," Davila said.

Miami men
were clinging
to vessel's hull
By KEVIN WADLOW
Senior Staff Writer
kwadlow @keynoter.com

An emergency flare led a res-
cuer to the scene of a capsized
boat Saturday north of Long Key.
Four Miami-area men were
found clinging to the overturned
hull of a 17-foot Aquasport open
fisherman, said Officer Bobby
Dube, information officer for the
Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission.
"This boating accident' has a
happy ending because these folks
had the proper safety gear and
followed the correct procedures,"
Dube said.
FWC Officer Chris Mattson


At th
Big PieFeaMre
Saudy an


found the men, and helped them
from the bay waters, about three
miles from shore.
None of the four men - boat
owner Rolando Abreu, Raul
Carmona, Jason Babrocas and
Daniel Rodriguez, all ages 25 or
26 - were injured. They were
returned to shore at a Fiesta Key
campground.
About 12:45 p.m. Saturday, a
wave came over the transom of
the boat and swamped it, Dube
said.
"That particular model does
have a low transom. If two guys
are standing back there, it sits
pretty low in the water," he said.
The men were thrown into the
water when the boat rolled - but
they were able to retrieve life
jackets and the flare-gun equip-
ment. They were wearing the
jackets when rescued.

"They were able to make a
brief radio call on the VHF,"
Dube said, "but they gave their
location as near Old Sweat Bank.
Actually, they were some dis-
tance away."
The boaters fired the flares to
show their position.
Mattson, on routine water
patrol, headed toward the bank
when he heard the emergency
call. Then he saw the emergency
flares and changed course.
"When Officer Mattson found
them, they'd been in the water
for about an hour," Dube said.
"They could have been there a lot
longer if they didn't have 'the
flares. They were not in the area
they thought they were."
Dube said. the incident
demonstrates the need for proper
safety gear. "Use your life jack-
ets, have flares that are not out of
date, and stay with the boat if it
capsizes," he said.
He pointed to the Feb. 28 inci-
dent off Clearwater when three
men, including two NFL players,
were lost after a 21-foot boat cap-
sized far out in the Gulf of Mexico.
"That's why rescues that end
well make everybody feed
good," Dube said.

Trap thieves convicted, get jail for 700+ lobster


Three also
banned from
Keys waters
By KEVIN WADLOW
Senior Staff Writer
kwadlow@keynoter.com

Three commercial fishermen
found with more than 700 illegal-
ly taken lobster aboard their boat
in October apparently saw no
way to explain it away.
Before the start of their sched-
uled trial Monday in Marathon,
all three pleaded guilty to felony
trap robbing and an array of con-
servation counts.
"They pled directly to the
court. That means there were no
deals," said Assistant State
Attorney Patrick McCullah, chief
prosecutor on the case.
Acting Circuit Court Judge
Ruth Becker-Painter sentenced
boat captain Roberto Beltran, 57,
of Miami-Dade County and
crewman Benito Estepe, 66, of
Miami to 364 days in the Monroe
County Detention Center (with
credit for time served since their
arrests) in addition to a five-year


probation period.
The third defendant, crewman
Leonardo Cancio, 56, of
Marathon, will be sentenced later
this month. Cancio already was
on probation from a prior lewd-
and-lascivious assault case -
and could receive time in state
prison, McCullah said.
All three will be required to
forfeit any state fishing licenses
they hold to work as commercial
fishermen.
And during the probation peri-
od, they are banned from diving or
fishing in Monroe County waters.
. "We hope this sends a mes-
sage that if anyone is thinking
about molesting crawfish traps,
don't do it. We will seek jail
time," McCullah said.
"When commercial fishermen
do it, that's particularly egregious,"
he said. "Our local commercial
fishermen have a hard enough time
as it is. For someone to take money
out of the pockets of honest fisher-
men is unacceptable."
Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission offi-
cers made the case after agency
pilot John Murphy reported see-


ing crew aboard the 40-foot boat
Kristal pull a trap buoy that did-
n't match buoy markings dis-
played on the boat.
Officers on water patrol inter-
cepted the boat and found a cache
of 774 wrung lobster tails hidden
in the vessel bow. Only a few
dozen lobster were legal size.
* Officers described it as one of
the largest seizures of illegally
taken lobster in years.
Beltran told officers at the
time of his arrest that "in tough
times, they [the fishermen] were
looking to make some money,"
said FWC spokeswoman
Gabriella Ferraro.
"This is excellent news. I hope
[the FWC] keeps making arrests
like this," said Brice Irwin, presi-
dent of the Marathon chapter of the
Organized Fishermen of Florida.
"This activity is bad new for
our business in a lot of ways,"
Irwin said. "It not only takes our
profit but hurts the resource itself.
These guys don't just take legal
lobster; they take whatever they
get their hands on."
. Each of the defendants will be
assessed $7,740 in major-viola-
tion conservation fines - $100
for each illegal lobster - plus


hundreds of dollars in court costs.
During probation, they will per-
form one day of community serv-
ice each month.
"It takes a lot of time and work
to cultivate these cases," FWC Lt.
Roy Payne said in an agency
statement. "The FWC cares about


the livelihood of honest commer-
cial fishermen. We support them
and ask that they continue to give
us information about suspected
trap-robbing."
Several FWC officers were in
the courtroom Monday prepared
to give testimony at trial.


Higgs Beach

meeting is Saturday


Breakout groups
to look at the
various problems
Keynoter Staff

As efforts to revitalize Higgs
Beach continue, the public has
the opportunity to weigh in on
Saturday starting at 9 a.m.
Key West City Commissioner
Teri Johnston and Monroe
County Commissioner Heather
Carruthers have been leading dis-
cussions with a small committee
the past two months to try to get a
handle on problems at the beach.
The biggest one, most agree,
is aggressive vagrants. Recent
improvements include a Sheriff's
Office deputy on patrol for eight
hours each day to deal with that
issue.
Also, fresh paint is going onto
the pavilions and bathroom
buildings, and a stop sign was


installed at Reynolds Avenue and
Atlantic Boulevard in front of
Astro City Park.
"It really is getting cleaned
up," Johnston said.
She's looking forward to
Saturday's meeting, which will
be held at the beach pavilions. "I
think we're going to get some
good input and hopefully some
volunteerism."
After initial input and discus-
sions, those interested will split
into smaller groups charged with
specific goals such as focusing on
improving the playground, land-
scaping or security. Then everyone
will come back together and share
their ideas with, the larger group.
There is a follow-up meeting
planned for April 3 at the Harvey
Government Center on Truman
Avenue.
The county owns Higgs
Beach even though it's within
city limits.

Staff at Island Christian

church have been working to
build a gym for decades.
Financial, zoning and permitting
issues slowed progress.
Once everything was in place,
work on the air-conditioned facil-
ity began in late 2008. Built with
the poured-concrete/tilt-wall
technique, the center is expected
to have a final cost of more than
$4 million, Hammon said.
Bleachers will hold 210 peo-
ple. "Our [sports] teams have had
to be road warriors, playing the

said ICS Athletic Director Robert
Lucas. "With this facility, we can
balance out our travel require-
ments as well as host state play-
off tournaments."

He has used Free File to help
his children, who are in their 20s,
file their tax returns.
The process is simple.
First, you must get your paper-
work in order, no matter how you
file. You need your 2007 federal
income tax return, your Social
Security number as well as the
Social Security numbers for your
spouse and children, your W-2
Forms, your 1099s, etc.
You need your 2007 adjusted
gross income as a way to verify
who you are if you use a Free File
tax preparer, said IRS spokesman
Luis D. Garciai.

Don't worry; this is nothing
like your grandfather's paper

ask: "What do they mean by
other income on Line 21?" The
free services eventually prompt
you with questions about your
finances and put the information
on the correct forms. Still, if you
have a very complex return,
you'd want a professional's help.

Key West -
baseball team
falls to 4-6
By DICK WAGNER
Keynoter Contributor


South Dade leading, 9-6, a ball
by the Bucs' Brandon Roush
struck a light tower, causing
the lights atop it to go off and
also the ones on a tower farther
down the first-base side;
Twenty minutes later, Keys
Energy Services having come
to the rescue, Roush resumed
his at-bat. He hit a grounder
that was booted by second
baseman Noah Josephson, and
another run came in to make it
10-6.
The score stayed that way as
Key West went down in order
in the sixth and seventh, strik-
ing out four times against
Roush, who was pitching in
relief.
The Conchs, who had
defeated the Bucs 7-3 Friday
night, were in trouble from the
beginning. South Dade, taking
advantage of sophomore pitch-
er P.J. Malott's wildness,
scored five runs on five hits in
the first inning.
The Conchs came back with
four runs in their half of the
inning, spurred by a 400-foot
lead-off home run by Frankie
Ratcliff. When the fired-up
shortstop crossed home plate,
he was greeted by his team-
mates, who celebrated as if

coach Steve Wells. "At the

I need her to hit." Against the
Bison, she had two singles and
was robbed of a double by the
left fielder.
"I played ball over last sum-
mer - that made me work out
of my normal boundaries,"
Disson said.
Although Wells kids her
about being "not exactly fleet
afoot," Disson still runs as hard
as she can. "I play with heart,"
she said.
The Conchs, who defeated
Reagan, 22-0 in Miami last
month, scored seven runs in
each of the first two innings
Saturday as they improved to 8-
3 overall and 6-0 in the district.
They, have outscored district
opponents, 103-16. - - -


Kendall Galvan had a dou-
ble and a single for Key West,
which, aided by walks, wild
pitches and errors, needed only
eight hits. Lauren Wells had a
single and a two-run home run.
'Catcher Alecia Archer drove in
a run with a single and threw
out a runner who was trying to
steal second.
Freshmen pitchers Savannah
Hawthorne and Rachel Quaid
shared the shutout. Hawthorne
started and allowed one hit in
three innings. Quaid threw the
last two innings - the game
was halted after the top of the
fifth by the 10-run mercy rule
- and also gave up only
one hit.
The Conchs, who will play

That was the last celebra-

affect their play Friday.
Playing among the noisy setup
for this past weekend's festivities
at the Marathon Community

easy victory and the boys team
improved upon its Feb. 28 show-
ing against Palmer Trinity School.
The girls improved to 6-1
overall with a 5-2 win Friday
over the Falcons, while the boys
fell to 2-4 with the 1-6 loss.

Farello, the team's No. 2, lost
her singles match 4-8, while
Kelsey Wonderlin (8-3), Michelle

against Palmer.
"This was a good showing for
ts tonight. The doubles matches
were the highlight with No. I and
No. 2 doubles using the strategies
and tactics we have been working
on in practice the last few days
with good results," Berger said.
Danaher and Wonderlin each
fell 8-2 in their singles match,
while No. 3 Weston Wiatt lost 1-

Friday, but defensive mistakes
cost the softball squad a 13-7
loss at Boca Raton Christian.
Jenn Subic blasted a home
run, and Kate DuPre had two of

"It was kind of a disappoint-

said- head coach Sheryl Yost.
"But other things, we did not so
right."
Fielding errors and an excess
of walks basically gave Boca
Raton eight runs, Yost said.
"That was the game," she


said. "But we're in a rebuilding
year, and working hard to get
better.
Island Christian carried a 2-7
record into Tuesday's game
against Marathon High School's
JV.
On Friday, the Eagles head to
face longtime rival Princeton


Christian.
"No matter what the circum-
stances, our girls always get
excited about playing
Princeton," said the coach.
"Princeton isn't as strong as they
have been in the past, but they're
still plenty good."
On Tuesday, the Eagles travel


to Colonial Christian.
Construction of the Family
Life Center and gym at the
Island Christian campus has dis-
placed the Eagles from their
home field in Islamorada, forc-
ing the Eagles on the road all
season. Some home games were
played in Marathon.

With the baseball season
heading into its final phase,
Island Christian sees a chance to
put ring up some more wins, said
head coach Tony Hammon.
"The worst of it should be
behind us," Hammon said.
"We've got an opportunity to
wind up with a break-even record
if we work at it."
The Eagles (3-5) play Horeb
Academy at 4 p.m. Thursday at
Island Christian in a game
rescheduled from the early sea-
son, then travel to Princeton
Christian on Friday.
The Eaglesgbeat Princeton last
week, 14-4, behind junior Phillip
Izaguirre's seven-hit, 10-strike-
out pitching performance.
Island Christian also had one
its best hitting games against'the
rival Panthers.


Phillip Izaguirre had a leadoff
home run in a 3-for-4 day, and
older brother Aaron Izaguirre got
a game ball for bouncing a home
run off the ICS school building
- the first time that's happened,
Hammon said.
Sophomore catcher Jordan
Izaguirre homered, tripled and
singled as he improved his aver-
age to .650, apparently one of the
best in the state, Hammon said.


Kaelin Carter, Matt Cavanagh
and Tom Cavanagh each had two
hits against Princeton.
On Monday, the Eagles ran
into state district leader Brito
Private, and lost a 14-0 decision.
"We put in some of our
younger guys pretty early to give
them some time to learn about
playing a very good team,"
Hammon said. "Kadian Carter
and Jordan [Izaguirre] threw in
relief, and did a good job."

ty debuts. Designated player
Haylie Heller also played a solid
game, Coach Andrea Murphy
said.
"It was nice to bring up the
younger kids and get them some
varsity experience. They all did a
good job," she said.
Senior Morgan Longstreth led
the early onslaught with a pair of
hits in the first inning alone. The
Dolphins plated eight runs in the
bottom of the first to jump out to
a big early lead.
Sophomore cleanup hitter.
Kelley Struyf continued to show
off her power this season with a
second-inning home run that
helped Marathon score six more
times and jump out to a com-
manding 14-0 lead.
Murphy said the girls put it in
cruise control the rest of the way,
and despite a few mistakes in the
field, earned a solid win. She said
it can be hard to stay focused with
such a big lead and the Dolphins
were fielding a young team.
"We had [three errors], which
isn't what you like to see, but half
of our infield had never played
together," Murphy said.
The Dolphins (8-8) are sched-
uled to visit Keys rival Coral
Shores High School today at 4
p.m. and host' Miami Christian
School Friday at 5 p.m.'

Sails set to arrive


Subtle changes
bring about new
fish populations

Spring has sprung. We're in a
transition phase throughout most
of our fisheries in the Keys, with
new and exciting species working
in daily while there plenty of the
winter fish are still here.
Now and fall provide anglers
the greatest opportunity to target
so many different fish. Although
we don't have the drastic weather
changes that mark the change of
seasons in most of the rest of the
country, we do have subtle
changes that the fish know, caus-
ing them to be on the move,
either in or out.
We're still loaded with plenty
Sof kingfish and mackerel on the
oceanside of .the islands, while
most of the mackerel in the bay,
at least the larger ones, will begin
to move out.
Cobia are making a strong
spring showing throughout the
islands, with tons of big ones
being reported, particularly on
the gulf side of the Middle and
Lower Keys. Sails, too, are ready
to bite most any day. The usual
spring run with heavy concentra-
tions is expected to move through
in the next week or two.
What's moving in daily are
dolphin. We usually see some of
the largest fish of the dolphin sea-
son in the early months. We also.
find quite a few yellowfin tuna

working
the deeper
waters
now.
Off-
shore
action
should
explode in
the next
few weeks,
w i t h
options for
action only
a mile or
two past


the reef. There should also be some
very hot fishing along the inside
edge of the Gulf Stream. We've
already seen a big surge of wahoo,
with more than 40 pounds caught
in recent weeks.
So it's all beginning to happen.
If you're not confident in your
offshore tactics or would just like
to obtain some more information
on tackle and techniques, our free
fishing seminar Sunday night at
our Marine Educational Center, at
3740 Overseas Highway, across
from the Marathon Community
Park, will offer you just that. We
will cover the major offshore
species of spring and summer -
the what, where and when. The
seminar starts 6:30 p.m. and is
open to everyone.
Other changes we're seeing is
the influx of tarpon and permit
throughout the bridge channels,
flats and banks. One of the signs
are the mullet that have been mov-
ing into the bay lately. There are


areas where you can find acres of
them working and mudding
around, feeding. This is a sure sign
the tarpon will be following short-
ly - with their hungry bellies.
Most of the guides are reporting
big numbers of tarpon throughout
the backside as well as some nice
showings around the bridges.
Permit are thick in most of the
usual haunts, both on the bay side
as well as oceanside wrecks. Some
of the flats are flat full of them.
Snook are thick throughout
most Keys waters, with an abun-
dance of fish over the size limit
being caught and released.
What's different this year is the
amount of bridge fish that are feed-
ingin the middle of the day. This is
not a usual trait for them, at least
not in the Middle or Lower Keys.
There's research being done
right now to see if there is a dif-
ference in the specific genus of
the fish in the area from those
along the west coast of Florida,
the east coast and even those that
are found nearby Flamingo. I'll
have more on that later as data is
captured. What I do know is that,
more than usual have been caught
so far this year.
This brings to mind that we
are headed into what is typically
the windiest part of the year for
us. The next three to five weeks
are when we usually get a few
Bermuda highs that anchor in
place for days on end and give us
strong easterly winds of 20 knots
or more. This is what really
makes that sailfish run that I was
talking about go, but it also
makes it difficult for many with
smaller boats or shakier stomachs
to work offshore.
The snook fishing as well as
tarpon, snapper and many other
species that frequent the bridge
channels and backwaters provide
those anglers with viable options
for not only plenty of action, but
some dang big fish to boot. The
key to fishing any of these areas
in the Keys is to play the winds
depending on the size of your
vessel.
There are options for just
about any day if you know which
one to work that particular day.
Check with your local tackle
store for your best options.
