Neugent: Roll dice on casino


By RYAN McCARTHY
rmccarthy@keynoter.com
Monroe County Commis-
sioner George Neugent is
gambling that a casino in
Marathon will rejuvenate the
local economy and raise
money for sewer construction.
His plan is in the infant
stages, but the four-term
commissioner says he's float-
ed the idea of trying to get a
casino at Florida Keys
Marathon Airport with
numerous Middle Keys real


estate agents, hoteliers and
restaurant owners, among
others, and has "yet to get a
negative response."
"I'm just asking to have a
civil discussion about this,"
Neugent said Tuesday, adding
he's spoken to Gov. Rick Scott
and state House Speaker Dean
Cannon about the idea.
"I talked to the governor
and the speaker and they said
bring us something that the
community supports and that
creates jobs and we'd [con-
sider] it. My only interest is


Commissioner says Marathon airport
gambling would rejuvenate economy


to help our economy,"
Neugent said.
Neugent planned to pitch
the idea at Tuesday's
Marathon City Council meet-
ing to secure the council's
blessing in moving forward.
He said he also plans to pitch
it to his fellow county com-
missioners.
"If the City Council mem-
bers don't go along with it, it


would be hard-pressed for us
to justify moving forward
with this," he said.
Neugent said he's open to
any and all ideas for an air-
port casino, including slot
machines, a card room,
roulette wheels and sports
betting. But he's admittedly
unsure what's feasible.
"I don't have the answer
to that, but there would be


some [legislation]. There
may even have to be an
amendment to the [state]
Constitution," he said. "This
is going to be an education
for me and a lot of people."
State Rep. Ron Saunders,
the Democratic House
minority leader from Key
West, said he's discussed the
idea with Neugent. He said
amending the Constitution is
"not a likely scenario" and
suggested opening a pari-
mutuel betting facility and
adding table games later as


has been done in Miami-
Dade and Broward counties.
"I'm not even getting into
the moral issues or political
issues. That's something the
voters have to decide on,"
Saunders said.
According to the state
Department of Business and
Professional Regulation web-
site, there are 27 pari-mutuel
betting parlors in Florida. It
says wagering is authorized for

ELECTION 2011


Candidates pitch themselves


Rossi, Johnston
make it official:
Running again
By SEAN KINNEY
skinney@keynoter.com

A standing-room-only
crowd was on hand at the
Salute restaurant Monday in
Key West as incumbent city
commissioners Teri
Johnston and Mark Rossi
announced their plans to run
for second four-year terms.
With her announcement,
Johnston, who represents the
city's District 5, bucked
speculation she would take
on incumbent Mayor Craig
Cates for that office; Cates
was also on hand to speak
with residents, although he
announced his candidacy
more than a month ago.

the meet-and-greet for candi-
dates, announced or potential.
Cates and Johnston have
been outspoken concerning
the placement of a new city
hall; Cates has pushed for
the city to get Glynn Archer


Elementary School on White
Street while Johnston has
maintained that a replace-
ment building at the current
location, 525 Angela St., is
the better course of action.
Negotiations with the


Monroe County School
District over the city obtain-
ing Glynn Archer failed by
the city's May 31 deadline.
But Cates said "I'm not giv-
ing up on that," to significant
applause.
"I haven't gotten a lot of
support from my fellow com-
missioners," he said, "but
I'm wearing them down."
He also said that develop-
ment of a park at the Truman
Waterfront, which has sat
stagnant since being deeded
to the city in 2002 by the
U.S. Navy, would be a prior-
ity if he's re-elected to
another two-year term.
Johnston, addressing the
City Hall issue, called for a
need to "use your money
wisely" and "make good
long-term decisions. We're
going to have a city hall this
year, believe me, and in the
right place."

Nearly two inches of rain
doused parts of the Upper
Keys on Tuesday, bringing
sorely needed relief to
parched landscapes.
A rainfall gauge on Long
Key recorded 1.96 inches of
rain, while an Islamorada
reporting station had 1.55
inches, said Matt Parke, a
meteorologist and data spe-
cialist with the National
Weather Service in Key West.
"The heaviest stuff mostly

Parke said. "You could see it

The defense contended
Skinner, a 23-year veteran of
the Miami Beach Police

from a "serious psychiatric

2009, he emptied a .357-cal-

well-rounded person,
exceeding the duty require-
ments of the job, profession-
alism, and showing a pattern
of community service,
among other things.
Based on the Florida

contention to be named
national American Legion
law enforcement officer of
the year.

transition is Friday


Board member

says effects

will be minimal

By RYAN McCARTHY
rmccarthy@keynoter.com

A visit to Fishermen's
Hospital Friday should feel
like just .*ili i!!' day" at the
Middle Keys medical center.
That's what hospital
board member and
spokesman David Kirwan
says of the long-awaited
transition from 25-year les-
see Health Management
Associates to Quorum
Health Resources.
Naples-based HMA has
been in charge at
Fishermen's since 1986, but
is turning the reins over to
QHR Friday morning. The
nonprofit board owns the
hospital and will assume


financial responsibility for
it.
"We feel pretty good
about it. Our goal has been
to make it as much of a
non-event as possible, but
it's still a change. The main
objective is to have licen-
sure in place and no change
in the quality of the care,"
Kirwin said.
He added he's p lii ne"
the transition to Tennessee-
based QHR will be smooth.
"Our licensure is finished.
We have all the licenses we
need to open," he said.
Kirwan said the board
intends to hire chief execu-
tive and financial officers
by January, with a search
beginning by the fall. QHR
Chief Transition Officer
Scott Landrum is slated to
take over for current CEO
Kim Bassett on an interim
basis.
Kirwan confirmed long-


time Fishermen's employee
Lynn Mauck will stay on
board as chief nursing and
operating officer.
Meanwhile, Kirwan said
the hospital will go "right
up to the wire" in terms of
securing finances to fund
the transition. He declined
to elaborate on the dollar
amount.
"Half of [it] is for capital
improvements and equip-
ment upgrades and the
other half will be used as an
operating credit for the
slow months," Kirwan said.
The hospital is also
negotiating with several
local doctors whose HMA
contracts expire after the
transition date.
"Some of the doctors,
their contracts don't end
with HMA until August and
we'll renew those as they
come up," he said.


MOSQUITO CONTROL BOARD


Lord-Papy admits guilt


Commissioner

violated the

Sunshine Law

By RYAN McCARTHY
rmccarthy@keynoter.com


Joan Lord-Papy on
Monday became the third
person this month with the
Florida Keys Mosquito
Control District to admit
running afoul of the law.
As expected, the five-
term elected commissioner
pleaded guilty to a non-
criminal violation of
Florida's Sunshine Law
overseeing open govern-
ment and agreed to pay a
$250 fine and another $270
in court costs.
The charge stems from
Lord-Papy responding on
April 27 to an e-mail sent
by fellow Commissioner
Jack Bridges about inter-
view dates for district direc-
tor candidates.
Bridges was replying to
an April 26 e-mail from
interim Director Andrea
Leal to commissioners and


noted that
the other
commis-
sioners
should not
reply to his
e-mail to
avoid a
Sunshine
LORD-PAPY Law viol
Law viola-
tion. Lord-Papy did, any-
way, sounding off at being
left out of the hiring process
while out of the country
vacationing.
"I also want to be on the
record as opposing this cav-
alier and shoddy approach
to hiring an individual for
such an important post,"
she wrote.
On June 6, former three-
term Commissioner
Charles Langstaff, formerly
of Key Largo, admitted to
homestead-exemption
fraud in Levy County. And
on June 21, former district
Superintendent Mike Spoto
was sentenced to 90 days in
jail and 30 months proba-
tion after pleading guilty to
felony theft.
Langstaff, 66, pleaded
guilty to his misdemeanor


and was ordered to pay
more than $14,000 to Levy
County in back taxes. The
longtime employee of
Beyer Funeral Home in
Key Largo admitted using a
dead Islamorada man's
Social Security number to
secure a homestead exemp-
tion on his Morriston prop-
erty near Gainesville.
Florida homeowners are
allowed one homestead
exemption, which allows
for a property tax break on
their permanent residence.
Langstaff already had a
homestead exemption on
his Key Largo home when
he obtained the one in Levy
County in 2001.
In addition to Levy
County, Langstaff owes back
taxes to Monroe County and
will end up paying more than
$60,000 overall in back taxes
for his fraud.
Spoto was arrested last
August for misappropriat-
ing three district cell
phones in 2007.
Spoto was fired from his
job as superintendent short-
ly after being charged.

FUNK
David L. Funk, 66, passed
away at 6:10 a.m. on Thursday
June 23rd, at his home on
Summerland Key, FL. His wife
and dear friend, Janet, was by
his side. David, who had been
battling cancer for some time,
was grateful for the friends he
stayed in touch with through
Caringbridge, and had been
encouraged by them. David
was born on September 6,
1944 in Coffeyville Kansas.
After graduating from High
School in 1964, he joined the
Navy. He scored so well on his
exams that he qualified for the
Nuclear Submarine Service.
He served until 1969 when he
was honorably discharged as a
1 st Class ELT Machinist Mate.
After he left the Navy, David
spent 3 years at the University
of Kansas. In 1972, he moved
to California where he worked
at the Mare Island Naval
Shipyard refueling Nuclear
Submarines. He moved to the
Keys in 1982 and started a
fiberglass mobile marine repair
business. He fixed over3,000
boats in the lower Keys, and
when he wasn't traveling to
people's homes to repair their
boats, he worked out of the Sea
Center on Big Pine Key.
Everyone knew him for his
desire to help others in
whatever they were doing.
David never met a "stranger".
He was preceded in death by
his parents Joe and Juanita
Funk and his brother, Paul
Funk. He is survived by his wife
Janet, his sister, Dr. Sandra
Funk of Kansas City Mo.,
brother Lloyd Funk of Kansas
and brother Larry Funk of
Coffeyville, Kansas.

Rain finally falls


From Rain, 1A

start to the wet season," said
Randy Smith of the South
Florida Water Management
District. "The concern is that
the rainfall deficit over the
last several months is very
large, in some places more
than 20 inches."
The eastern Miami-Dade
basin has received 17.6 inch-
es of rain since Oct. 2 -
more than 15 inches below
the normal rainfall of 32.8
inches for the period, the dis-
trict reported Monday.
"Those are some big [rain
deficit] numbers," Smith
said. "It's going to take a
wetter-than-average season
to make much of a dent."
Fortunately for Florida
Keys water consumers,
enough rains have fallen to
raise freshwater levels in the
Biscayne Aquifer above
worrisome levels.
On June 20, the Florida
Keys Aqueduct Authority


halted about six weeks of 24-
hour operation of its desali-
nation plant at the utility's
Florida City well field.
"The only place it rained
up there was right over the
well field," said FKAA
spokeswoman Colleen
Tagle. "We were very lucky.
It's so porous up there that
rains go right through to the
aquifer and recharge it."
The level of the freshwater
lens in the Biscayne Aquifer
decreased to only about 2.4
inches above the saltwater
layer, requiring the FKAA to
put its desalination plant -
which draws water from the
more brackish Floridan
Aquifer - into full operation.
Running the plant costs
about $4,000 per day in elec-
tric and chemical costs,
Tagle said. That ran up a bill
of about $120,000 in expens-
es for the six-week period,
but no special customer sur-
charges will be required to
cover it, she said.

ing, jai alai and poker games.
Slot machines at pari-mutuels
are authorized in Broward and
Miami-Dade counties.
Neugent said a casino
would be a boon to the
Middle Keys' struggling
economy and generate
much-needed income for
sewer projects up and down
the Keys. He said it could
potentially raise property
values, encourage resort
redevelopment, create jobs
and coax a major commer-
cial airline to serve the city.
"Looking at the closed
store fronts that exist up and
down the Keys, especially the
Middle Keys, and people
hurting because of this econ-
omy, I think that Marathon, if
it supports this proposal, is a
place that represents a good
place located at the airport. It
has unused parking and space
for development," he said.
In 2010, the Legislature
shot down Neugent's plan
for a one-penny sales tax to
raise money for Keys sewer
projects.
"They said [to] create a
revenue source, but not by
taxing. OK, this is my sec-

mold, among other things,
and city staff is working in
rented space.
She also stressed that who-
ever is elected will participate
in making decisions with
longstanding implications,
particularly solid-waste poli-
cy to be crafted in 2012 after
a comprehensive analysis of
the city's waste management
needs is complete.
Rossi, representing District
2, is running unopposed so
far, like Johnston. Neither has
filed official paperwork with
the City Clerk's Office to run.
He emphasized his acces-
sibility to constituents and
said that in the past four
years, "I think that I made
the right decisions."
"My door is always open.
I'm always willing to listen. I
care about the city of Key

Running against Cates are
Carie Noda and Sloan
Bashinsky, both former can-
didates for the post; Noda
and Cates have officially
filed and Bashinsky has not.
Monday night, Noda kept
it simple, stressing her oppo-
sition to oil drilling in Florida
waters, which she says would
be detrimental to the tourism
industry, and closed by ask-


ond idea. Whatever profits
are generated beyond opera-
tions would be to standardize
and stabilize sewer rates
from Key Largo to Key
West," he said.
Neugent suggested that

operate a casino would agree
to pay the county a certain
percentage of the gross prof-
its. "Something along those
lines that the receiver of the
contract would pay a fran-
chise fee," he said.
Saunders said he's not sure
if that's possible, but that
Neugent is taking the right step
by starting at the local level.
"My understanding is if
casinos do generate income,
it goes to the state. We don't
know if they'd turn around
and give it to the Keys. But if
the local folks don't want
one, what's the point in find-
ing these things out," he said.
Former Islamorada mayor
and 2010 County
Commission candidate Mike
Forster suggested putting a
casino at the airport during
his unsuccessful campaign.
The idea was laughed off at
the time, but he says it's a
"no-brainer."

STRANDED PILOT WHALES


SeaWorld

It looks like
release isn't
likely option

By KEVIN WADLOW
Senior Staff Writer
kwadlow@keynoter.com

Eight weeks after a mass
standing of pilot whales in
the Lower Keys, a decision
on the future of the healthi-
est survivor will be made in
the near future, say marine-
mammal experts.
The smallest whale,
known as 301, "is apparent-
ly reaching the point where
it is relatively healthy and
stable," said Erin Fougeres,
a regional marine-mammal
stranding program adminis-
trator with the National
Marine Fisheries Service.
"301 is doing well and is
swimming on her own,"
says a June 24 update from
the Marine Mammal
Conservancy in Key Largo.
"She continues to improve
and goes through physical
therapy every day. We are
so pleased to see the
progress she's making."
Based on a recommenda-
tion from Marine Mammal
Conservancy veterinarian
Micah Brodsky, experts and


likely for b
Fisheries Service staff
could meet within the week
to make a decision about
whether 301 can be
returned to the wild after
rehabilitation at MMC's
Key Largo facility.
That appears doubtful,
Fougeres said.
"We can't estimate its
age because there just is not
a lot of data on pilot
whales," she said. "But
based on how it looks and
some behavioral character-
istics, it appears to be a
dependent calf."
If the decision is made
that 301 cannot be released,
qualified marine-mammal
parks will be alerted that
they may apply to take the
animal into care. The only
known pilot whales in cap-
tivity live at SeaWorld in
San Diego, Calif.
SeaWorld has been vol-
unteering their experts, who
are some of the few people
who have experience work-
ing with pilot whales,"
Fougeres said. "That does
not mean SeaWorld defi-
nitely will get the calf.
They'll have to apply like
everyone else."
SeaWorld spokeswoman
Becca Bides said,
"Decisions concerning the
future of the juvenile will


with the state on a potential
plea offer that could speed
things up a bit," Barrows
said.
Becker suggested putting
the case on the September
docket for an update.
Villalobos has been in the
Monroe County Detention
Center on Stock Island since
his arrest on Dec. 10, 2009.
He's being held on $1 million
bond.
He's charged with two
counts each of DUI-
manslaughter and vehicular
homicide, and three counts of
DUI-personal injury and
property damage with a prior
conviction stemming from




aby whale
be made by National
Marine Fisheries Service.
SeaWorld has facilities and
expertise to take in the ani-
mal and is willing to help in
any way needed."
Marilee Menard, execu-
tive director of the Alliance
of Marine Mammal Parks
and Aquariums, said whale
301 almost certainly even-
tually will be transferred to
San Diego.
"SeaWorld is the only
facility in the U.S. with
pilot whales," Menard said.
"They have other animals
for socialization and staff
with expertise. I don't see
where there is any other
option."
Only one other whale -
an adult known as 300 - is
still in rehabilitation at the
Key Largo site.
"That animal has some
pretty serious health
issues," Fougeres said.
"We're very, very cautious-
ly optimistic about her
recovery, but we really
don't know about that ani-
mal at this time."
A pod of 23 pilot whales
stranded May 5 off Cudjoe
Key. Most died at the scene,
but two males were released
after being deemed healthy
enough to survive.


the Nov. 28, 2009, crash that
killed 42-year-old Deborah
Mangrum and 34-year-old
Christopher Jennings.
Around 9:30 p.m. that
night, authorities say
Villalobos' 1999 Ford was
headed northbound and col-
lided with a 2009 Toyota
driven by Marathon resident
Mercedes Diaz, 57. It hap-
pened on U.S. 1 at 23rd
Street.
Troopers say Villalobos'
car collided with the left side
of Diaz's car and continued
forward, smashing into
Mangrum's car. Villalobos
was traveling so fast that his
car flipped, troopers said.
Mangrum, a mother of
four, died at the scene.
Jennings died a few days
later at Jackson Memorial
Hospital in Miami.
In 2006, Villalobos was
convicted of drunk driving
after being arrested for hav-
ing a blood alcohol content
of more than .20 percent. In
Florida, .08 is considered
legally drunk.


Two life terms


From Skinner, 1A

Garcia that because of anti-
depressants, he had "very
few conscious recollec-
tions" of the two days lead-
ing up to the shooting.
"Tom Skinner is not a
person who needs to be
incarcerated for life,"
Ballarotto said. "This is a
good man who committed a
terrible offense."
With proper treatment,
Skinner eventually could be
released with "no danger to
[the victims] or the commu-
nity," Ballarotto said.
Garcia acknowledged
Skinner's service as a
police officer, along with
"numerous letters from
family and friends." But
Skinner was "lucid :I, ,ii.

Good and bad


for governor

Scott forming task force to investigate
elder abuse but also kills commission
looking at effects of climate change

Gov. Rick Scott this week confounded critics and
even some supporters by actions that included a key
veto and a quiet end to Florida's Energy and
Climate Commission.
First, the veto, which came on the heels of
launching a task force to investigate lax state over-
sight on assisted-living facilities in Florida.
The governor pulled the rug out from under
industry lobbyists who had succeeded in suckering
lawmakers into passing legislation that would have
relaxed reporting requirements for owners of assist-
ed living facilities.
"Until a more deliberate examination of the reg-
ulation and oversight of assisted living facilities is
conducted," the governor said, "I do not believe it is
prudent to relax any reporting requirements..."
Scott also announced a task force to examine
what can be done to improve the lives of frail elder-
ly who are often left to "fend for themselves in
squalor and dangerous conditions."
A Miami Herald-St. Petersburg Times investiga-
tion found "serious failures in state oversight of the
state's 2,850 homes."
The series, "Ngclcl cl to Death," found exam-
ples of abuse, neglect, unsanitary living conditions,
even injuries and death attributed to lack of proper
care, diet and medical intervention.
The legislation that passed the Florida House and
Senate this spring would have exempted owners
from reporting lawsuits against their facilities to
state regulators, and would have eliminated require-
ments that regulators report yearly on homes that
violate state law.
The governor deserves credit for stepping into
the middle of this and exercising his veto of very
bad legislation.
The second event of note came Monday with the
quiet death of Florida's Energy and Climate
Commission.
As part of the governor's anti-regulation sweep,
the commission ceases to exist and the work shifts
to the Department of Agriculture and Consumer
Services.
"We're taking the word climate out of our delib-
erations and that is a mistake," said Commissioner
Kathy Baughman McLeod, who used to work for
former Florida CFO Alex Sink.
With Democrats out of power in Tallahassee, the
debate about climate change and what that will do
to Florida's coastal communities and environment
- well, that's no longer a high priority for Florida's
new governor.
Elections do have consequences. Debra Harrison,
a well-known Keys environmental activist and
director of the World Wildlife Fund's Florida pro-
gram, said this to Florida News Service reporters
"The dice didn't land the way I had hoped it would
land. I hope we don't lose what gains we have
made."
Only time will tell.

Control the crocs
My family has vacationed in
Islamorada for the past 30 years. This
2011 season was the first time we
encountered an 8-foot crocodile
swimming in the Venetian Shores
canal. Yes. Mr. Big Crocodile. Thank
God the kids weren't on their paddle-
boards or hanging out with their
favorite manatee.
The recent Keynoter articles about
the possible croc attack on the two
kayakers I hope sheds light on the
increase in croc sightings throughout
the Upper Keys. Much talk these days
is about crocs gone wild with a swim
in our pools, chasing our dogs and
basking in the sun on our front steps.

Thanks for the help
Safe Harbor Animal Rescue of the
Keys would like to thank Capt. Spider
Branch for his June 16 Casting for
Charity event at the 7 Mile
Marina/Salty's, which raised more
than $180 for the Marathon animal
shelter.

Justice unbalanced
I was leaving Key West and came
across the article about Mike Spoto, the
former Florida Keys Mosquito Control
District superintendent sentenced to
three months in jail for theft.
He goes to jail for three months?
How fair is that? During the gubernato-
rial race, Rick Scott was blasting Bill
McCollum and Alex Sink for misusing
state airplanes. The ethics commission
barely clears them and they are off
scott-free. They did reduce their use of
state planes.
Regarding the $5,000 cell-phone
bills rung up by Spoto: I suggest chang-
ing cell-phone carriers. I have Verizon
unlimited and it costs only $69 per
month. I can talk or listen 24/7 and it
will not cost $5,000. The district's pur-
chaser needs to revaluate the cell-
phone agreements.

Surviving whales suffer
The pilot whales that stranded in May
were unwisely trucked from perfectly
good confines in the Lower Keys, where
successful pilot-whale rescues were per-
formed in 1995 and 2003, to the Marine
Mammal Conservancy in Key Largo.
That the whales have only been held
in place and rarely, if ever, exercised or
allowed to do assisted swims in the
lagoon is testimony to forgotten standard
husbandry practices used in past success-
ful rescues. Holding and supporting
stranded marine mammals is necessary in
initial stages but to continue the public
hugging and mugging of these animals
past 10 days screams of inadequate and
cruel treatment of animals that are
Olympic athletes when in the wild.
Even more dangerous is the
announcement by conservancy President
Robert Lingenfelser that the flesh-eating
bacteria mersa was cultured from the
most recently euthanized pilot whale, not
a surprise since the entire rescue scene
has been confined to hot, shallow
nearshore waters surrounded by a fence
and oil boom that impedes circulation.
Why the larger lagoon has been
ignored is an indictment of the poor vet-
erinary and husbandry practices lost in
the push to get more volunteers and,
therefore, more donations. The result is
prolonged suffering of animals now in
need of rescue from their rescuers.


Let's face it, crocodiles are invading
our Keys.
So what are we doing? Is the Fish
and Wildlife Conservation
Commission looking into why so
many are taking up residence there?
Oh, that's right, the crocs are just stop-
ping over from a vacation in the
Everglades.
Some folks say wow, what about
it? Crocs have been living here forev-
er and no one noticed. Really? Well,
we did notice for the first time ever,
with croc visits in our canal and at a
friend's on Columbus Drive on Lower
Matecumbe Key. I don't really think
it's the same Mr. Croc going up and
down the Keys introducing himself


With life-threatening code violations
on the habitually and chronically non-
compliant conservancy property and the
threat that Keys visitors and residents
will go home with a mersa infection, the
clock has run out on this cruelty circus.
Send the calf to Sea World now and
mercifully end the last suffering pilot
whale's misery.

Police the makeshift park
A chain-link fence surrounding the
vacant former Quay property in
Marathon was dismantled recently, giv-
ing way to cars and boat trailers hap-
hazardly parking there. I have even
observed tents pitched, picnics taking
place, fishing from the seawall and
children playing there.
Is there no one policing this area?
The seawall edge is crumbling;
there is no wall barrier present. The
parking access road is in need of repair
and the two little lighthouses have been
severely vandalized. This all is very
dangerous and a liability for the city of
Marathon that we can't afford.
Furthermore, I do not see any port-a-
potties nor refuse barrels in place.
I would hope the city of Marathon
and the Monroe County Sheriff's
Office would remove their blinders and
review this issue.
On a positive note: This would
make a nice little wayside park. It's
conveniently near a restaurant and new
motel, and enjoys boat ramp access.
And to top it all off - awesome views
of Keys sunsets.

Audit sewer district
The Key Largo Wastewater
Treatment District was fashioned after
a legal 2000 wastewater master plan
that does not address collecting sewage
from any jurisdiction other than what is
defined as Key Largo.
The federal grant funding, Florida
State Revolving Loan funding and
assessments for more than 11,000 Key
Largo customers is for the specific
legal use of Key Largo. To extend serv-
ice to Islamorada would violate all
agreements previously made to obtain
the more than $157 million used to
establish this system.


and saying hello.
If you are interested in what these
crocs can and will do if given the
opportunity, watch the Animal Planet
show about man-eating croc attacks
on scuba divers, swimmers and fisher-
men in Australia. Australia has its
share of deadly croc attacks.
We all know Mr. Croc can run fast
and jump high and loves to gnash
those mighty teeth. Isn't he cute? Ever
wonder what the tourists would think
if there were signs posted about the
Keys saying "Beware of crocodiles"?
So today, let this be our wakeup call
before Mr. Croc causes a tragedy.

SCapt. Spider Branch
hands off the proceeds
to Safe Harbor board
President Sheila Cook (left)
,; and Executive Director
' Katie Bentley.

In my opinion, the district has
already violated legal principals of its
responsibilities by mishandling dozens
of properties by treating similar proper-
ties differently; eventually, the district
commissioners will have to recognize
these errors.
In some instances, they have
installed infrastructure on private prop-
erty and refused to do so on others.
They gave John Pennekamp Coral Reef
State Park $350,000 in waived fees for
a small easement that was not worth
anywhere near that much money.
Each resident pays $5,200 per
equivalent dwelling unit, so for a cred-
it of $350,000, that is about 67 EDUs.
This resolution passed in 2006 refer-
enced as Easement 31661. However,
there are approximately 215 legal
parcels at John Pennekamp and not 67,
which is what the approximate credit is
for.
In addition, there are approximately
55 RV sites and numerous buildings
that create large amounts of sewage
collection. What happened to the other
148 parcels at $5,200, or $769,600, in
potential assessments?
A similar deal was done with the
Key Largo Baptist Church, formerly
the Key Largo Baptist Temple; Island
Dolphin Care.
At the private Seven Acres subdivi-
sion, the district gave the homeowners
association an easement to install, at
district expense, the sewage collection
system. The sewer district is about to
make a deal with the Harborage, an 11-
acre private community asking that the
district install the sewage collection
system on their private property instead
of Harborage residents having to pay
for it themselves. Instead, each resident
will pay the reduced one EDU fee of
$5,200. This is similar to the deal made
with the Seven Acres subdivision.
Condemnation of property for ease-
ments should have cost the district
much less money than the amounts it
gave away as credits for the same
rights. I am asking the district and the
Monroe County Commission to create
an oversight committee and request an
audit on the practices of the district in
general to prevent the continuance of
these missteps.

KEY LARGO


Yet another blow for park's redevelopment


Land is found
to be on list
of undevelopable

By DAVID GOODHUE
dgoodhue@keysreporter.com

Rebuilding on oceanfront
lots at Key Largo Ocean
Resort may be more difficult
because of a federal case
that bans flood insurance for
property designated as habi-
tat for some endangered
species.
After years of infighting
among shareholders over
how the RV park will be
redeveloped - and who will
have the prime oceanfront
lots - county officials now
say a large part of the 22-
acre park at mile marker
94.8 is included in a federal
court judgment to protect
endangered species habitat
by restricting federal flood


insurance.
That issue could further
delay what would be one of
the largest redevelopment
projects ever in the Keys.
A 2005 federal judge's
decision prohibits the
Federal Emergency
Management Agency from
issuing flood insurance for
about 50,000 properties in
the Keys because they may
contain endangered species
habitat. The judgment came
from a lawsuit filed by three
environmental groups in the
1990s.
Chief Assistant County
Attorney Robert Shillinger
said he discovered earlier
this month that all of Key
Largo Ocean Resort's
oceanfront land and a con-
servation easement on the
north end of the property is
among the properties listed
on the judge's injunction.
Without FEMA flood
insurance, people who want


to rebuild would not be able
to get mortgages. They
could still rebuild, but they
would have to pay cash and
forego flood insurance,
Shillinger said.
"I don't know how a bank
will lend based on that.
They're generally not lend-
ing to lands based on the
FEMA list," Shillinger said.
Although the majority of
KLOR lots are not on the so-
called FEMA list, Shillinger
said the entire co-op might
have a hard time borrowing
to pay for building the park's
infrastructure, including
sewers, water and electricity.
Shillinger told county
Circuit Court Judge Luis
Garcia about the FEMA
issue during a status briefing
on June 21 with KLOR
attorney Kent Robbins.
Garcia reacted by burying
his face in his hands.
Robbins said he expects
the flood insurance issue to


be resolved quickly because
the property was previously
developed and there is no
natural habitat. All
dwellings at the park were
razed in 2010.
The case has been in
Garcia's court since Monroe
County sought to force
KLOR to fix the hundreds of
building and fire code viola-
tions the county said had
existed for more than two
decades. Garcia has been
overseeing progress by
KLOR on fixing the viola-
tions.
The resort owners are
seeking county approval for
a revised plan to rebuild the
entire park with 280 modu-
lar homes on stilts.
The county approved a
prior site plan in 2005. But
park shareholders voted to
recall the then-board of
directors. The current board
made a new plan, placing a
common area where some


shareholders, including the
architect of the original plan,
Eduardo Calil, had water-
front lots.
Calil is threatening to sue
the KLOR directors on prop-
erty rights and copyright
infringement claims. County
attorneys worry Monroe
County could be dragged
into the lawsuits. Shillinger
said his ,lcl.,ii p,' uliin is
to recommend that the
Planning Commission deny
the newer site plan until the
property issues are resolved.
Another setback for some
KLOR shareholders is that
the oceanfront lots they say
they should get might, in
fact, belong to the state.
Robbins said a warranty
deed from 1972 has been
found that shows the proper-
ty's previous owner, a com-
pany called Brynmawr, gave
the waterfront to the state's
Internal Improvement Trust.
"If this is the case, their


claim to waterfront property
is not based on facts,"
Robbins said.
Shillinger said he is
checking to see if the state
leased the land back to Key
Largo Ocean Resort.
Robbins said there is no evi-
dence for that. He is
researching whether the land
was submerged ocean bot-
tom that was filled some
time in the past 30 years.
"We're trying to find out
who filled it and when it was
filled," Robbins said.
Garcia reluctantly agreed
to consider Robbins' request
for mediation, which would
involve an independent arbi-
trator overseeing negotia-
tions between all the parties
- which could add signifi-
cant delays in redeveloping
the property.
"Once that wheel starts
turning, it slows things
down," Garcia said.

Program offers
reimbursement
for 10 projects
By KAREN QUIST
kquist@keynoter.com

The Greater Marathon
Chamber of Commerce is
looking for 10 businesses
interested in helping make
Marathon more beautiful.
In exchange, the chamber
will reimburse each business
up to $1,500 in qualified
expenses for work that
improves the public face of
their business.
It could be something as
simple as pressure washing
or a fresh coat of paint, or as
complex as a new facade or
landscaping.
The catch, said the cham-
ber's chief executive officer,
Daniel Samess, is that the
businesses must come from
the ranks of the chamber's
400 or so members. But he
points out that it's never too
late to join, at a tax-deductible
cost of about $250 a year for
an average membership.
Interested businesses
need to apply by July 15,
after which the chamber's
board of directors will pick
the 10 best plans. The busi-
nesses must complete the
work by the end of
September to be eligible for
the reimbursements, and the
finished project must match
the original plan.
Several local businesses
have agreed to offer dis-


counts on goods and servic-
es, which Samess hopes will
be create an added incentive
to participate.
"Not only will they be
able to get reimbursed, but
they can also stretch their
dollar," he said.
The program is a twist on
one the chamber tried a cou-
ple of years ago, Samess
said. He suspects that a com-
bination of bad timing and
participation restrictions
were responsible for a lack
of interest in that program,
but he's optimistic this one
is set up to succeed. If it
does, he said the chamber
would want to repeat -
finances permitting.
Samess said several busi-
nesses have already applied,
including Coconut Cay
Resort & Marina owner Jim
Rhyne, who has already put
in an application for the 10-
acre resort that fronts U.S. 1.
"For us, it was an oppor-
tunity to beautify the tourist
corridor of the city, as well
as take advantage of beauti-
fying our own property,"
Rhyne said of Coconut
Cay's application.
Rhyne said it's difficult
for small businesses to find
the money for capital proj-
ects these days. Many mom-
and-pop operations are
focusing just on maintaining
what they have, with no
money for improvements.
Something as simple as
fresh sod and new paint
would improve the look of
his place and in turn, the
highway it sits along.


* ATHENA
* BEACH HOUSE
* CARIBBEAN JOE
* CEEB
* DOTTI


"With a little bit of help,
we can afford to do more,"
Rhyne said.
While there's no require-
ment for how much the 10
businesses spend, the cham-
ber will ensure that the
investment results in a tangi-
ble improvement to the
city's appearance, Samess
said.
The chamber chief said
conversations with some of
the 50,000 visitors who walk
into the visitors' center every
year reveal why beautifica-
tion efforts are key to
Marathon's future.
Samess said tourists like
so much about the city - its
fishing, its attractions, its
restaurants, its people - but
they say it falls short in
appearance.
"A lot of them believe we
could look better compared
to other Caribbean-type des-
tinations," he said.
He said the chamber is
pleased with its $10,000
donation to one of the city's
beautification efforts. That
$36,000 project, which City
Manager Roger Hernstadt
said is essentially complete,
placed trees in the medians
of U.S. 1 in front of the
Florida Keys Marathon
Airport.
"We're happy to be a
major contributor to getting
that done," Samess said.
"The board wanted to have a
positive impact on beautify-
ing our great community."
Samess said the chamber
hasn't taken an official posi-
tion on city commissions


* IT FIGURES
* J. VALDI
* JAG
* JANTZEN
* LEILANI


discussions - now on hold -
to add a line item in the
city's budget for future
beautification projects.
The chamber did reach
out for community feedback
on the idea of a small prop-
erty tax increase - $25 to
$35 for the average home-
owner - to fund beautifica-
tion efforts. Samess was sur-
prised that more than 70 per-
cent of the approximately
200 respondents said they'd
favor it.
After seeing the kind of
an improvement that
$36,000 purchased, Samess
said, "imagine what
$200,000 a year could do."
Traffic counts show as
many as 10,000 drivers on
the highway going each way
each day, Samess said. "I
look at that as potential.
How can we capture that
audience?
"We need to look better."
The CEO knows a city-
wide beautification effort
can't happen overnight, but
it has to start somewhere.
That was the spark for the
name of the program -
Business by Business
Beautification - because
it's beautification one busi-
ness at a time.
N.ii.1.l11,i1 has to make
beautification happen,"
Samess said, "and we want
to help businesses step up to
do it."

able on the chamber's web-
site, www.floridakeys

Scott creating

assisted-living panel


Miami Herald

Just weeks after ordering
a crackdown on troubled
assisted-living facilities, Gov.
Rick Scott is launching a task
force to search for ways to
improve homes that have left
frail residents to fend for
themselves in squalor and
dangerous conditions.
The governor ordered the
special panel at the same time
he announced another rare
move: His veto of legislation
that was championed by the
powerful industry to help
facility owners get around
red tape and regulations.
The task force was
prompted by a Miami Herald
series last month that exposed
sweeping neglect and abuse
that left scores of people dead
at the hands of their care-
givers over the last decade.
The Herald found that the


state could have shut down
70 homes in 2008 and 2009
for such violations as abuse
and neglect leading to
deaths, but closed just seven.
The former Key West
Convalescent Center shut its
doors in November 2008
after the then-operator,
Midcare Inc. of Tennessee,
failed repeated state inspec-
tions. It's now open under
Senior Care Group of Tampa.
The state's Agency for
Health Care Administration
also halted new admissions
to the Plantation Key
Convalescent Center on
April 2, 2010, citing repeat
inspections ilh.i identified
conditions that posed an
immediate threat to the
health and safety of the res-
idents. Those conditions
included issues regarding
reporting of accidents, neg-
lect and abuse."

Suicide victim spoke of fire


He set house
ablaze, then
killed himself
By SEAN KINNEY
skinney@keynoter.com

A tragedy that unfolded
early Sunday morning in Key
West has left one man dead,
the result of a suicide, two
others the victims of a
cocaine-fueled assault, and
several neighbors turned out
of their apartments due to
smoke and water damage.
Statements and reports
from police and fire officials
indicate that Jeffrey Kerr, 68,
blockaded his front door and
set six separate fires in his
upstairs apartment at 1830
Fogarty Ave. before taking
his own life with a gunshot,
while standing in the bathtub.
Kerr's downstairs neigh-
bor, Stephanie Kaple, told the
Keynoter that in her few brief
encounters with Kerr, the
topic of fires had come up.
"About a month and a half
ago, one day I came out and
there was a ladder in the area
behind my unit. I saw him
later on and asked why there
was a ladder back there. He
said, 'Yeah, that's my fire
escape in case I have to get
out of the building,' " she
said. "I don't know if he had
some kind of an obsession
with fire - he wasn't some-
one I'd feel comfortable
going up and talking to."
In the hours leading up to
the 8 a.m. blaze, Kerr and his
two guests, Joshua Bley and
Eric Pachicano, were hang-
ing out drinking wine, smok-
ing marijuana, taking medic-
inal marijuana pills and
snorting cocaine, according
to police reports.

This is where the fire and suicide took place. A neighbor says she's dealing with nothing


but insurance issues right no
Bley and Pachicano, both
30, told police they met Kerr
in front of the Bourbon Street
Pub on Duval Street around 4
a.m. and returned to his
apartment with him, where
they took a shower together
and changed clothes.
According to a statement
from Bley, after Kerr ,n-liI-
ed cocaine he became very
angry," accusing the two men
of stealing money from
inside the apartment, adding
that "no one was leaving
until he found his money."
The situation escalated
when Kerr took out a gun and
ordered both men to lie on
their stomachs, and bound
Bley's hands with duct tape.
Then both men made a break
for the door, with Kerr
assaulting them using a metal
bat and the butt of his pistol.


Outside, Bley ran until he
found a police car on Catherine
Street and Pachicano immedi-
ately dialed 911.
When law enforcement
showed up, Kerr had used his
refrigerator to barricade the
front door; that's when police
saw smoke coming from the
windows. When firefighters
arrived, they found the fires
and Kerr's body in the bath-
room.
"When I first came out-
side," Kaple said, "the police
were there with guns drawn
along my building and up the
stairs." They instructed her to
stay inside. "I could hear
them knocking on the door
and I could hear [Kerr] mov-
ing around inside his unit.
"As I was sitting there, I
could hear smoke alarms
going off. I grabbed my dog


and ran to the door. They
said, 'He set the place on fire,
get out of here.' "
The damage to the Habitat
for Humanity building is esti-
mated at $200,000. The
American Red Cross is pro-
viding temporary housing,
food vouchers and other
services to those displaced.
"I'm doing a lot of laun-
dry and dealing with insur-
ance - that's the theme of
my life right now," Kaple
said. "Coming out and seeing
smoke coming out of the
building, all you can think is
everything in your life is
going to be gone; your pic-
tures, the lamp my grandfa-
ther made; it's just not
replaceable. It's frightening
when you start to think of all
the things in your home that
are memories."

The village of Islamorada's

post after three years to take a
job with the city of Vero Beach.
Cindy Lawson joined the
village's staff in 2008 after

doing contract work for the
city of Marathon, the Key
Largo Fire-Rescue and
Emergency Medical Services
District and the Monroe
County Commission while
she was working for the cer-

Lawson, 50, has a long
career history in finance and
engineering, including a
four-year stint in the U.S. Air
Force, retiring at the rank of


second lieutenant.
Lawson, who makes
$109,000 a year with the vil-
lage, said she feels it's time to
leave the Keys after living
here for 18 years.
"It was a tough decision to
make. I had so many great
experiences in Islamorada,
but a great opportunity pre-
sented itself, and I felt the
need to take it," Lawson said.
Lawson's last day at the vil-
lage is July 15. She will make


an annual salary of $108,000
as Vero Beach's finance direc-

according to the city's Human

Lawson was making
$111,000 a year at the village
before all employees received
a 2 percent pay cut in 2010.
The only money owed to
Lawson when she leaves will be

Keys squad splits two games


Next up in
tournament is
Doral today

By KEVIN WADLOW
Senior Staff Writer
kwadlow@keynoter.com

A split of two close games
this week kept the Upper
Keys all-stars alive in the
Age 9-10 Little League
District 8 Tournament.
An unassisted double play
by first baseman Mike
Signorelli, who snared a
sharply hit line drive and
caught the Homestead runner


off the bag, ended Monday's
13-12 win at Harris Field in
Homestead.
"It was a thriller to the
end, neck and neck all the
way," Upper Keys head
coach Mike Petrusha said.
Kyle Kraus and other
Keys players provided criti-
cal hits, and the pitching trio
of Elijah Woods, Mike
Petrusha and Joseph Silvestri
held Homestead in check.
The game included a
lengthy delay over an
umpire's call on the bases
that was appealed by phone
to Little League headquar-
ters, which ruled in favor of
the Keys squad.


"Fans on both sides were
getting pretty worked up,"
Petrusha said.
The Upper Keys team is
scheduled to close out round-
robin play in the four-team
Age 9-10 South Pool with a 7
p.m. game today against
Doral at Harris Field.
Playoffs are scheduled to
start July 8.
In the tournament opener
Saturday, the Upper Keys
lost a 13-10 contest to
Kendall.
Kendall jumped off to a
big lead but the Keys team
rallied back with six runs in
the fifth inning to stay close.
"Christian Foote got the


rally started," said assistant
coach Casey Scheu." Big hits
by Ricky Williams and Dylan
Scheu kept it going."
Kyle Richards had a
standout defensive play with
a clutch catch in right field,
Scheu said.
An Upper Keys team in
the Age 10-11 opens district
play in a 6:30 p.m. game
today against Doral in Doral.
Action continues with a 7
p.m. Thursday game against
North Miami Beach.
The South Pool of the
District 8 Age 11-12 toura-
ment opens July 5 in Key

Larger dolphin now appearing


Yellowtail bit
is also strong
along the reef

Good news for dolphin
lovers: We're starting to see
some bigger fish with more

Chris Johnson around.
Here's a
little trick if you find it tough
to get the largest slammer
dolphin to bite ballyhoo or
trolled bait: Catch some of
the bait fish found under
floating debris or Sargasso
week and pitch them to the
dolphin.
We've had many reports
of wahoo, most in the 15- to
20-pound range, although,
the folks at Burdine's in
Marathon told me of a mon-
ster 63-pounder caught over
the weekend. Unfortunately,
the angler was not registered
in their annual Fun
Tournament.
Blackfin tuna fishing at
the humps has been very
good, with many fish in the
high teens to low 20-pound
mark. A variety of live baits,
trolled lures and butterfly jig-
ging is working.
The mutton snapper bite
continues to be good in and
around the wrecks and rough
bottom patches in 100 to 200
feet of water. There are also
some amberjack in the same
areas, with large jack crevalle
making their annual summer-
time appearance.
There have been reports
of cobia as well as nice-size
dolphin around these deeper
wrecks. Having a pitch rod
ready will do a long way to
rewarding you with a bonus
fish or two.
On the reef, the yellowtail
bite remains good, with most
anglers fishing the 60- to 90-
foot depths. Fish in the 14- to
18-inch category are domi-
nating the catches.
Should you get to your
favorite yellowtail spot in
these depths and find only
pee-wees taking your offer-
ings, wait it out. The small
fries are usually the first to
bite, while the larger 'tails
follow sometimes up to an
hour after you begin chum-
ming.
Large mangrove snapper
and good-size muttons are
mixed in with the yellowtails.
Keeper black grouper are
there, as well, although as the
waters continue to warm,


On a recent trip with Capt. Jim Griffith of Angler Management Charters, Mike Tucker and
Jeff Feins of Fort Myers landed many blackfin tuna, including this one held by 10-year-old
Lauren Tucker.

Pen'with Jeff Ryder, Ben Ryder and Richard Baer.


they will shift to deeper areas
in search of more suitable
temperatures.
The night mangrove snap-
per bite is excellent any-
where from 30 to 65 feet. If
you choose this summer
favorite, be sure you have all
the proper lights on your boat
and keep an eye on the sky, as
it is peak thunder and light-
ning season.
These night mangroves
are in the three- to six-pound
range, and live pinfish is your
bait of choice. The bay has
plenty of mangrove snapper,
as well, although they're not
quite a large as their cousins
taken at night on the reef.
Shark fishing in the bay
shallows continues as an
excellent alternative on a


windy day as well as for just
plain rod-bending fun.

The week's best
Capt. Jim Griffith of
Angler Management
Charters at the Island Fish
Company in Marathon has
been fishing the reefs, wrecks
and offshore lately and hav-
ing a lot of success with big
blackfin tuna, wahoo, dol-
phin and snapper.
Fishing on the Papa Pip
out of Captain Pip's Marina
in Marathon, Capt. Zach
Willis put groups from
Naples and Columbus, Ohio,
on some great dolphin catch-
es, while Neil Apley guided a
crew of anglers on a night
mangrove trip, where they
caught 30 snappers.


Capt. Jeff Shelar, of
Catch-Em-All Charters out
of Captain Pip's Marina,
caught dolphin from
schoolies to heavy lifters to
gaffers 15 to 22 miles off-
shore, with scattered grass
and birds being the tip-off.
His catch of the week goes to
Dennis Beaty from Texas,
who caught a 62-pound
amberjack while fishing on
the reef off Marathon.
The SeaSquared fished
the reef all week with one trip
to the bay. Our groups
brought in limit catches of
yellowtail, mangrove and
mutton snapper as well as
numerous black grouper.
Capt. Kevin Wilson, of
Knee Deep Charters out of
the Geiger Key Marina, took
his anglers to the reef and
wrecks where they caught
limits of yellowtail snapper
plus multiple large amber-
jack. He also found dolphin
in 700 feet of water offshore.
Capt. Moe Mottice, of
Reel Lucky Charters out of
the dock at Turtle Kraals in
Key West, reports a fantastic
week for long, hard fights
with tarpon going 100-plus
pounds. Cero and Spanish
mackerel plus yellowtail and
mangrove snapper add to the

KEY WEST FISHING


Orlando angler wins

Gator Club Derby


He celebrates
birthday with
37.8-pounder

Mike McGinty of
Orlando caught a 37.8-
pound dolphin - on his
birthday - to take
grand-champion honors
in the annual Key West
Gator Club Dolphin
Derby that ended
Sunday.
McGinty caught the
dolphin while fishing on
the boat Way Point with
family friends Nate
Wheeler and Fred
Wheeler. They were in
about 400 to 600 feet of
water on the tourna-
ment's second fishing
day, and had hooked up a
20-pound cow and 20-
pound spinner, when
McGinty spotted the blue
flash that signified
another dolphin.
"When he jumped out
of the water, we knew he
was a big fish," McGinty
said. "It was my first
fishing tournament ever,
I'm a Gator alum and I
caught it on my birth-
day."
The boat Glass Calm
of Bay Point earned the
team division champi-
onship, scoring the tour-
nament's largest aggre-
gate weight of two dol-
phin with 63.4 pounds.
Bay Point angler Jack
Davis caught both fish, a
30.3-pounder and a 33.1-
pounder that also earned
him third place in the
men's division.
First place in the


men's division was
awarded to Brandon
Masiello of Key West,
fishing on Bottom Line
III, for his 37.2-pound
catch.
Women's division
honors went to Jessica
Cranney of Key West,
who caught a 36-pound
dolphin while fishing on
the Captain Morgan.
That boat took second
place in the team divi-
sion with a two-fish
aggregate weight of 58.9
pounds - Cranney's fish
and a 22.9-pounder
caught by Brandi Bishop
of Key West.
Thirteen-year-old
Timmy Fricke of Big
Pine Key won the junior
division with a 13.9-
pound dolphin. The
young angler fished
aboard Squid Roe.
The derby's largest
wahoo was caught by
Barry Andrews Jr. of Key
West. He boated the
14.4-pounder while fish-
ing on the Eva Marie.
John Karr of Lebanon,
Ore., boated the largest
tuna - a skipjack weigh-
ing 17.3 pounds - fish-
ing on the Land Man.
Pepe Gonzalez of Key
West, skipper of the ves-
sel Against All Odds, was
named the event's top
charter captain.
The tournament drew
153 participants fishing
on 41 boats.
Proceeds from the

WATERSPORTS



It's a bird, it's



a plane, it's...?


Water-fueled
jet-pack rides
arrive in Keys
Visitors to Key West
and, shortly, the Middle
Keys can now pretend to
be and fly like James Bond
with a new watersport:
Levitation through a
water-powered jet pack.
In Key West, Jetpack
Adventures is based at the
Galleon Resort & Marina.
Come Friday, it'll also
operate at Hawks Cay
Resort & Marina on Duck
Key.
Jetpack manager Erik
Adams says participants
strap on a JetLev R200
flight pack that looks like
the one actor Sean
Connery wore in
"Thunderball." A 30-foot
hose tethers the apparatus
to a small boat with a

trols allow individuals to
take off, make soft turns,


hover and land as the boat
is dragged behind.
During training, jet-
pack riders receive a safe-
ty briefing, are fitted with
a helmet and personal
flotation device, and are
harnessed to the jet pack.
Once on the water, par-
ticipants first experience
flying with a certified
instructor operating the
vehicle via remote con-
trol. As the student
becomes more proficient,
he gains more flight con-
trol.
Dave Tuxbury, former-
ly of Traverse City,
Mich., is an instructor at
the attraction. "You
always dream of flying
and what it would be like
to be that bird up there,"
he said.
Cost for the 1.5-hour
experience is $249 and
includes a half-hour of
flight time. For more

TO YOUR HEALTH


Successful dieting is no secret


Author gives
basic advice
to shed pounds

Miami Herald
Skinny girls don't have a
secret. They follow a set of
rules that could help you lose
weight without dieting.
Now Molly Morgan, a
registered dietitian and certi-
fied dietitian nutritionist, is
going to share some of them.
Her new book, "The Skinny
Rules: The 101 Secrets Every
Skinny Girl Know"
(Harlequin, $12.95), came
out in March.
Question: What are some
of the easy tips we can quick-
ly turn into habits?
Answer: \\.il i your
BLTs ... bites, licks and
tastes! Calories can pile up
quickly from bites, licks and
tastes of foods that happen
almost mindlessly.
"Quickly make the habit
to only eat when you're hav-
ing a meal or a snack, to
quickly cut down on extra
calories.
"Calibrate your schedule
to allow for seven to eight
hours of sleep per night.
Getting enough sleep needs
to be part of the equation
when managing weight
because it allows for appetite
hormones to balance out and
can make it easier to stick to
your eating plans.
"Sneak it in - exercise,
that is. Walk the dog, do
lunges while on the phone, or
grab some hand weights dur-
ing commercials. These extra
bursts of exercise can boost
the amount of calories
burned each day."
Q: What are rules you fol-
low yourself?
A: "I have a piece of fruit
about 20 minutes before
meals to help keep my
appetite in check. Favorites
of mine: mango, pear, apples,
banana or oranges.
"We always have a full
fruit bowl at our house and



Birding festival
needs volunteers

It's not until September,
but organizers of the annual
Florida Keys Birding and
Wildlife Festival are looking
for volunteers now.
The festival is a nonprofit
event taking place Sept. 21


ules
I..





.




we use a hanging basket,
which makes the fruit right at
eye level and it serves as a
great reminder to grab a piece
instead of snacking on some-
thing else.
"Another favorite tip is
exercise at home. I work out
very effectively at home: 30
to 60 minutes most days of
the week and I vary my
workouts from cardio to yoga
to weights. There are so
many great DVDs and exer-
cise programs to do in the
comfort of your home. The
biggest challenge is just mak-
ing sure to set aside the time
to get it done."
Q: I like the splurge
everyday tip. What do you
suggest as a kiniiii"
splurge?
A: "My personal favorite
splurge is a skinny latte
(made with fat-free or low-
fat milk). Choose a small or
medium and you'll only have
90 to 120 calories, plus you
squeeze in a serving of dairy.
Other skinny splurges: frozen
fruit popsicles (look for ones
made with real fruit), ice
cream (opt for light versions)
and chocolate pudding (make
your own with milk)."
Q: What are some of the
,kiiiiiN" kitchen and fridge
essentials?
A: "The top kitchen
essentials: a mini food
processor (perfect for dicing
up veggies), garlic press
(adding flavor & antioxidants



through 25 spearheaded by
Jim Bell at the National Key
Deer Refuge. The event com-
mittee meets at Curry
Hammock State Park on
Crawl Key the first Tuesday
of each month at 3 p.m. for
about two hours.
The festival includes two
birding walks and talks with
Kenn and Kimberly


to meals) and meat ther-
mometer (takes the guess-
work out of cooking meat,
fish, and poultry). Fridge
essentials: a few must-haves:
high quality protein (center
cut pork chops, lean beef,
boneless skinless chicken,
salmon), low-fat dairy (milk,
yogurt, and part-skim
cheese) and a variety of fruits
and veggies (apples, oranges,
baby spinach, blueberries
and onions)."
Q: One of your tips is
wear the right size. How does
someone who is looking to
get more fitted clothing or
who has lost weight get the
right fit? What are some tips
for anyone looking for the
,kiiinii" look?
A: "Over time, your body
will likely change and you
may need to rethink what
style and size is right for you.
Talk to the sales crew where
you shop, and they may help
to provide guidance about
what is best for you.
"A few quick tips: Play up
wonderful legs with beautiful
shoes or play down not so
wonderful legs with neutral
color shoes, and consider
skipping skirts. To play up
your beautiful face, choose
jewelry that will draw atten-
tion upwards. Most impor-
tantly, choose the right size
by avoiding clothes that
pinch, pull or pucker (unless
they were designed to do
so)."
Q: Despite the title, The
Skinny Rules: The 101
Secrets Every Skinny Girl
Knows, it's still about being
healthy, right? Sometimes
that doesn't mean that you
are skinny.
A: "The best way to
describe this is that you don't
have to be a size 0 to be
healthy. I encourage people
to rethink the way they
define skinny, and that is by
the type of lifestyle you lead.
By following the skinny
rules, you will lose weight
and most importantly you
will be living a healthier
lifestyle."

Tortugas, and an environ-

INDEPENDENCE DAY


Tips for a dog-friendly


Fourth of July


UPPER KEYS


Researchers, others look


for Schaus' swallowtails


The fireworks

often scare

furry friends

Miami Herald

Barbecues and fireworks
are Independence Day
favorites, but not so for the
four-legged members of the
family.
The loud noises - there
are fireworks in Key Largo,
Islamorada, Marathon,
Sugarloaf Key and Key West
- and chaos of the day can
upset your dog. To help make
the day special for everyone,
the American Kennel Club
offers tips to help keep your
dog safe this Fourth of July.
Among them:
* Even if your friend's
Fourth of July party is dog-
friendly, it is safer to keep
your dog home than to bring
him. Keep your pets inside
the house rather than out-
doors. That way he won't be
tempted to leap over the
fence to try and find you.
* The loud noise of fire-
works can startle your dog.
Keep him in a safe room
where he is comfortable once
the festivities begin. If your
dog is crate trained, put him
in his crate with a blanket so
he feels secure. You can block
the outside sights and sounds
by lowering the blinds and

When the fireworks go off, your dog should be in the
house, preferably in a room where he or she is
comfortable. Closing the blinds will help.


turning on the television.
* Don't feed your dog
scraps from the grill. While
you might be tempted to give
him some as a treat, any sud-
den change to your dog's diet
can really upset his stomach.
* Avoid spraying your dog
with insect repellant and only
use sunscreen that is intended
for animal use human prod-
ucts can be dangerous to pets.
* Identification is extreme-
ly important in case your dog
gets loose and separated from
you. According to AKC



bus pickup, call the church
at 743-6838.

Endangered

butterfly

is declining

Concern over the appar-
ent decline of the endan-
gered Schaus' swallowtail
butterfly in the Upper Keys
has prompted biologists
with the Florida Fish and
Wildlife Conservation
Commission and others to
organize intensive field sur-
veys to look for the butterfly
in North Key Largo and
Biscayne National Park.
Once found in tropical
hardwood hammocks from
south Miami to the Lower
Keys, Schaus' swallowtails
(Heraclides aristodemus
ponceanus) are now limited
to the Upper Keys and
Biscayne National Park.
Adult swallowtails have a
very short life span, typical-
ly living for only two weeks.
FWC biologists are coor-
dinating a multi-agency
effort to count adult Schaus'
swallowtails. Butterfly
enthusiasts and volunteers
with the North American
Butterfly Association and
the Florida Natural Areas
Inventory are conducting the
majority of the surveys.
The National Park
Service, the U.S. Fish and
Wildlife Service, the Florida


The butterfly used to be as far south as the Lower Keys, but
now doesn't go another further than North Key Largo.


Department of
Environmental Protection
and the University of Florida
are providing assistance and
support.
"We've never had this
many people surveying at
one time," said FWC region-
al biologist and project coor-
dinator Ricardo Zambrano.
"The goal of the survey is to
get an estimated count and
distribution of the individu-
als so the FWC and its part-
ners can identify actions
needed to conserve" the
species.
Surveyors are walking
though trails in swallowtail


habitat, counting adult indi-
viduals and recording loca-
tions of where they are
observed. Surveys are
occurring several times a
week in both locations.
The Schaus' swallowtail
is a federally endangered
and state-threatened sub-
species. A combination of
factors, such as habitat loss,
pesticide use and illegal col-
lection, are suspected to be
responsible for its decline.
Weather events, including
hurricanes and droughts,
also have adversely impact-
ed the population.

BEER


Lagers finding their



way in an ale world


NEW ROTARY OFFICERS


Many brewers

taking a fresh

look at them

McClatchy-Tribune

If you've enjoyed a craft
beer lately, it probably was-
n't a lager.
There are a few reasons
for that: Ales are cheaper to
make (their fermentation
requires less time and higher
temperatures) and more
robustly flavored, and their
boldness is a more profound
reaction to mainstream beer
drinking, the vast majority
of which is pale lagers
(hello, Bud Light).
When the craft-beer
movement took root, there-
fore, it largely came in the
form of ales. Lagers - a
style developed in southern
Germany in the 16th
Century producing a simple,
smooth flavor - have large-
ly been left behind.
The craft pendulum,
however, is swinging back.
Many major brewers -
such as Bell's, Dogfish
Head, Lagunitas, Avery and
Victory - have at least one
lager in their portfolio.
Chicago's Metropolitan
Brewing makes primarily
crisp, brilliantly executed

Lager beers, once a No. 2 to
ales, are making a comeback.

lagers.
Then there are Coney
Island beers. Sensing a hole
in the craft-lager market,
Jeremy Cowan - who had
previously launched
He'Brew Jewish-themed
ales ("The chosen beer") -
started a line of robust lagers
four years ago.
He's up to six, plus col-
laborations and limited-edi-
tion releases. Cowan said his
lagers were largely inspired
by the middling lagers some
others produce.
"They're usually a brew-
ery's least interesting beer,"
he said. "We're still battling
the position in craft beer that

lagers are boring, pale yel-
low fizzy beers that are
interchangeable."
Cowan's lagers would
probably appall 16th
Century Germans - who
clung to a mere four ingredi-
ents, water, barley, yeast and
hops - with recipes that
include up to eight malts, 10
hops and ingredients like
ginger and orange peel.
The approach is almost
alelike in its audaciousness,
and has included aging the
beer in bourbon barrels and
dry hopping (the process of
adding aromatic hops after
fermentation).
"We wanted each one of
those beers to be referencing
a style but with a twist,"
Cowan said. "We use the
word lager as a point of
familiarity, but once we rope
them in, we turn them side-
ways and get them on a dif-
ferent track."
Yet at heart, they're still
lagers, with a breadlike and
yeasty nose and mid-tier,
refreshing body. The Coney
Island series, which includes
a recently released summer
12-pack, has put Cowan on
the leading edge of craft
lagers.
On a summer day, it's
tough to think of anything
more satisfying.

Miss Firecracker
pageant is Friday

The 2011 Miss
Firecracker Pageant takes


the stage on Friday in the
Garden Bar of the Bourbon
St. Pub, 724 Duval St., Key
West.
Produced by Terry
Paulson, the event is pure
camp but its intent is seri-
ous.
In July 1987, the Miss
South Carolina Pageant
was about to happen at a
posh local club. A compet-
ing club created the Miss
Firecracker Pageant,
where hairy chests were
paired with high heels.
Charlie Powell, now
deceased, moved the com-
petition, with some fine-
tuning, to Key West in
1994 to benefit nonprofit
organizations. AIDS Help
is the main recipient.
The Garden Bar will
begin selling standing-
room tickets for the 2011
Miss Firecracker Pageant
at 7 p.m. (the pageant itself
begins at 8). General
admission is $20.
Reserved table seating
($100 for four seats) is still
available by calling
Paulson at AIDS Help,
293-3666.
