Assistant City Manager Mark Finigan, who oversees finance and administration, proposed a rate of $2.8627 per $1,000 of assessed home value; for the owner of a $300,000 home, that means an $858 tax bill. The adopted millage rate for the current year is $2.9132 per $1,000 of assessed home value; the owner of that same home had an $873 city tax bill this year. The year-over-year difference represents a 1.73 percent decrease in the municipal tax rate.The citys proposed general fund for operating expenses for fiscal year 2011-12 is $39,716,710; not included in that number, but still part of the general fund, is $9,634,000 held back in reserves.Finigan said the reserve equates to 89 to 90 days of city operation in the event that all revenues stopped; that works out to about $108,000 per day in expenses.The budget for the current fiscal year, ending Sept. 30, is $40,524,700 with another $7,211,500 in reserves. The year-over-year reserve buildup is $2,422,500.Finigan explained that the bump in reserves is due to the elimination of a subsidy to the citys former ambulance service provider, favorable parking and cruise-ship disembarkation fees, and positive trends in workers com-Small decrease in the tax rate in the offingBy SEAN KINNEYskinney@keynoter.comKEY WESTRepaving of U.S. 1 to start on SundayAfive-mile stretch of U.S. 1 in Marathon will get a much-needed facelift sooner than expected. Repaving work on the highway, torn up due to sewer work and other utility projects over the past couple of years, was originally slated to begin by early fall. But state Department of Transportation spokesman Will Thompson told the Keynoter Monday that the work, from mile marker 49.1 through 54.6, will now begin Sunday. It couldnt come fast enough for people who regularly drive that stretch of the highway and feel like their tires are being shredded. The paving itself is going to take months. Theres so many variables, but the project is scheduled to end in December. In addition to repaving, theyll be re-striping the roads, he said.The work is scheduled to take place between 8 p.m. and 6 a.m. each night. Thompson said at least one northbound and one southbound lane will be open at all times.Theyre starting on the northbound side at [milemarker] 49 and do that all theDOT says project expected to last through DecemberBy RYAN McCARTHYrmccarthy@keynoter.comMARATHON301 LANDS AT NEW HOMEPhoto by JASON COLLIER/SEAWORLDMarine-mammal experts at SeaWorld in Orlando lower a pilot whale calf into a rehabilitation pool Saturday shortly after its transfer from the Keys.The whale,known as 301,was among 23 pilot whales that stranded themselves off Cudjoe Key on May 5.Two were deemed healthy enough to be released but most died from unknown causes.The calf was among two left rehabbing at the Marine Mammal Conservancy in Key Largo before its transfer to SeaWorld, where it will live out its life since its been deemed unsurvivable in the wild.One whale,known as 300,remains at the Marine Mammal Conservancy undergoing treatment. Wisteria Island goes to vote todayThe Monroe County Planning Commission is expected to decide today whether to adopt a land-use rule that would drastically restrict the ability of the owner of Wisteria Island to develop the island just off Key West.County Growth Management staff recommends a future-land-use map designation allowing just two homes on the 21-acre island. The developer has far more ambitious plans than that. So developer Roger Bernstein, via his F.E.B. Corp., wants the vote delayed to allow more public input into the decision, as well as time to work out utility concurrence with the city of Key West. Adelayed vote and that concurrence both arent likely. Calls to planning commissioners Jeb Hale, Bill Wiatt and Randy Wall were not returned on Tuesday; Commissioner Liz Lustberg declined comment on how she will vote. Denise Werling couldnt be reached. County planners, based on a staff report prepared in advance of todays meeting in Marathon, suggest giving Wisteria a future-land-use designation of residential conservation, which would kick in the two-home limit.Thats markedly downsized from Bernsteins proposal of 35 market-rate homes; 35 transient units containing 85 bedrooms; five workforce houses; a bar, restaurant and retail shop; and upland facilities to support 100-plus ball mooring field.His plan would have Wisteria similar to the adjacent high-end Sunset Key. Bernstein representatives have asked for todays decision to be postponed but, because its being driven by county staff based on previous Planning Commission direction, that consideration is not afforded the developer.In a separate planning maneuver, Bernstein has filed an application seeking a textamendment change to futureland-use map policy, creating a new category called mar-Two-home limit is on the table but developer wants decision delayedBy SEAN KINNEYskinney@keynoter.comFLORIDA KEYS DEVELOPMENTGoodman: Plan long termFlorida Keys Mosquito Control Board Commissioner Phil Goodman wants the Mosquito Control District to be guided by a three-year strategic plan aimed at streamlining the districts operation something thats never been done.During a Monday budget workshop on Stock Island, the newest member of the board delivered a detailed presentation about his plan. It analyzed district finances, tax levies and organizational history over the past decade or so.Goodman pointed out that property values have fallen precipitously since 2008 while district expenditures continue rising. He specifically cited what he feels is a high number of management positions overseeing the districts roughly 80 employees roughly 30 more than the district employed in 2001.Weve got 80 people or so in the district. To me there is about 16 positions on here that are managers, supervisors or assistants. In my opinion, we have too many people in the middle that we really need to look at this and adjust it, Goodman said.Goodman also said the district should avoid duplication or triplication of services at its offices up and down the Keys. Theres one in Key West, Marathon and Key Largo. Goodman suggested to reorganize under functional lines. He said operations killing mosquitoes and operations support labs and other services are all thats necessary. Most years, we received more [tax revenue] than we spent.

This is what happened, according to the Florida Highway Patrol: Alexander Gonzalez, 19, was driving a 2006 Toyota south at mile marker 90 around 12:40 p.m. and witnesses stated [the car] was being operated in a reckless manner..., including traveling in the non-driving median. Gonzalez drove off the median and onto the northbound shoulder of the highway, crashing into the concrete post. His passengers, Eddy Paret, 31, and Joseu Napoles, 16, both of Marathon, were airlifted to Ryder. Gonzalez was initially taken to Mariners Hospital in Tavernier, then later was airlifted to Ryder, as well. Charges are pending further investigation. expenditures have gone up, he said. This is really unsustainable. New district Director Michael Doyle, whose first day was Monday, said he supports the idea of strategic planning and streamlining. But he asked for time to learn how the district operates. I fully agree with technology you can eliminate some positions and that needs to be looked at, he said. I personally need to see how mosquito control is done here ... before I feel prepared to make any drastic changes. Fellow board members supported the idea to establish a three-year plan and approved holding a workshop to discuss details. The vote was 4-0, with Commissioner Joan LordPapy absent. The board didnt settle on a date Monday, but the workshop is likely to be held sometime in August. Without doing it, it hurts our long-term ability to control our budget. I think this needs to be done sooner rather than later, Goodman said. From Mosquito,1A Keynoter photo by RYAN McCARTHYNew Florida Keys Mosquito Control District Director Michael Doyle (front) takes in a Monday budget workshop and commission meeting on his first day of work.Deputy Director Andrea Leal is seated to Doyles left,with Commissioner Jack Bridges in the background. Bug board adopts nearly flat tax rateThe newest addition to the Florida Keys Mosquito Control Board sparked a spirited debate with fellow commissioners Monday over the next fiscal years property tax rate. Commissioner Phil Goodman, appointed at the end of May by Gov. Rick Scott to fill out the term of the late Dick Rudell, refused to cooperate with fellow commissioners advocating a higher millage rate to start negotiations. He was adamant the district maintain the same .4596 tax rate as the current year. It would raise $8.55 million for operating expenses in 2011-12.My goal is to improve service and reduce cost. Do more with less; this is what every business and most of us have done here over the last 10 years, Goodman said.Chairman Bill Shaw and commissioners Steve Smith and Jack Bridges supported a starting rate of .5100, which would require a super-majority vote since it was higher than .4863. That rate is the highest that could be adopted with a simple majority.A.5100 rate would generate $9.5 million, but that plan was complicated by the absence of Commissioner Joan Lord Papy. With Lord-Papy missing, that meant it would have to be approved 4-0.Shaw, Bridges and Smith maintained the higher millage was supported to give leeway to new Director Michael Doyle in crafting the budget since, once adopted, proposed tax rates can be lowered but not raised. Monday was Doyles first day on the job. I would like to cut a couple million dollars off this budget if we can. But we have costs we have no control over, like chemicals. Were facing one of the worst mosquito seasons weve had for years. We need to have enough money, Shaw said.In addition, the district has consistently eaten into its once-considerable reserves in recent years. The proposed budget indicates it would use roughly $3.25 million of its remaining $5.25 million in reserves to fund the $15.2 million 2011-12 budget.As recently as fiscal year 2008-09, the district raised $9.7 million in taxes and had $8.1 million in cash reserves.Over the past year, Southcott has maintained spending down the reserves is bad policy. He declined comment about why he didnt present commissioners with a proposed spending plan that replenishes them.Shaw eventually motioned to approve the rollback rate of .4836, which Southcott could be approved by a simple majority of any quorum. That tax rate would raise approximately $9 million in the coming year. The vote passed, 3-1, with Goodman dissenting.The rollback rate is the tax rate necessary to raise the same amount of tax dollars as in the current year. At that rate, the owner of a $300,000 house in Monroe would pay $145.08 in taxes. The districts first public hearing is scheduled for Sept. 13 at 5:30 p.m. at the district office on Stock Island.Goodman votes against it, wants it lowerBy RYAN McCARTHYrmccarthy@keynoter.comMOSQUITO CONTROL BOARDpensation and other liability claims. He said the citys stable financial position is due in part to the commissions direction over the last few years to look at those opportunities in which we could reorganize the way we do business, restructure and save some dollars. The citys taxable property base, bucking the countywide trend, experienced minute growth, about $20 million to a total taxable assessed value of $4,947,877,614. City staff projected revenues from building fees at $1.26 million, roughly the same amount collected in the current year. Finigan called that among the hardest revenue sources to budget for.Just when you think you can anticipate an uptick in the economy, theres a change.Cruise-ship disembarkation fees, another major revenue source, are based on passenger counts; for the coming fiscal year, city staff expects a 9.37 percent increase in the number of passengers, to 837,492. The actual per-passenger fee paid depends on which of the three berthings the ship calls on; but the projected passenger load is expected to result in more than $2.5 million in direct general fund revenue.Final budget hearings are set for Sept. 8 and 19, both beginning at 6 p.m. in Old City Hall on Greene Street.City budget looking solidFrom Budget,1ARaises for city commissioners?As part of their two-day discussion regarding the budget for fiscal year 201112, members of the Key West City Commission this week contemplated giving themselves raises. Commissioners make $8,500 annually, while the mayor earns slightly more at $10,000; that range is lower than what their elected counterparts throughout Monroe County earn. Commissioner Teri Johnston, running for reelection to her District 5 post, acknowledged the issue is a political hot potato, but called the current compensation a ridiculous salary for the amount of responsibility and time we put in to these positions. Its very difficult to sit here and talk about a salary increase for yourself in any economic times, she said, but I think probably it is these times we need the strongest people up here and the strongest commitment to our responsibilities in order to lead our community out of these times. City Manager Jim Scholl said a salary increase would have be approved via two public hearings of an amended ordinance; in order to include salary increases in the budget for the coming year, the new law would have to be passed prior to final budget approval, scheduled for Sept. 19, he said. City Attorney Shawn Smith put together a comparison of salaries for elected officials:Monroe County commissioners, $43,244 each year.Monroe County School Board members, $29,066 annually.Islamorada Village Council members, $1,000 per month.Marathon City Council members, $1,500 per month.Florida Keys Mosquito Control Board members have a tiered system; the chairman and treasurer earn $2,036 per month, while other members get $1,986 monthly.On the Key West Utility Board, the chairman earns $1,179 per month while other members earn $984 in the same time period. Included in the proposed Key West budget are 2 percent raises for city employees earning less than $100,000.By SEAN KINNEYskinney@keynoter.comKEY WESTWinds to kick up for lobster daysAfleet of boats here for the lobster sport-diving days today and Thursday may look even larger if expected windy weather keeps crawfish chasers close to shore. When conditions get rough during mini-season, more people usually head to the bayside or bunch up around bridges, said Officer Bobby Dube of the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission. Weather forecasts were calling for southeast winds from 15 to 20 mph today and Thursday, raising 3-foot seas.Summertime thunderstorms and squalls can develop quickly and pose hazards to boaters and divers, the Key West Office of the National Weather Service cautioned in a Tuesday reminder for lobster season.The two mini-season days typically attract about 30,000 divers and snorkelers to Keys waters, the most popular spot in Florida to pursue lobster. Crowds began arriving last weekend with about 500 people visiting the Lobster Information Booth at mile marker 106 Saturday and Sunday, Dube said. State and federal staff at the booth brief divers on closed areas, proper measuring techniques and other rules for taking the maximum of six legal-size lobsters per day.Three lobster-sniffing police dogs join a contingent of approximately 60 county, state and federal marine officers expected to patrol Monroe County this week.In 2010, FWC officers checked 2,669 boats during the mini-season and issued 89 conservation violations. ALand-O-Lakes man was arrested Sunday on charges that he tried to get a head start on mini-season season. David A. Gross Jr., 22, was taken into custody after FWC Officer Chris Mattson reported finding six wrung lobster tails on the defendants boat, checked on the oceanside of the Long Key Bridge. Gross initially denied having any lobster aboard. But Mattson asked a passenger to move a boat cushion, which revealed the illegally taken lobster.Gross was charged with possessing six out-of-season and wrung lobster. He also was charged with possessing two undersized lobster, one speared lobster and one undersized snapper. Gross and passenger Jake Stiles, 20, also were cited for interfering with an officer.Sport diving days end at 11:59 p.m. Thursday. Regular lobster season opens Aug. 6.One hunter is jailed for early startMINI-SEASONThree-year plan to be offered up By KEVIN WADLOWSenior Staff Writer firstname.lastname@example.orgDeadline looms to get on ballotPotential candidates have a week starting Tuesday to challenge incumbents Mike Cinque and Richard Keating for seats on the Marathon City Council.If no one does, according to the Monroe County Supervisor of Elections Office, it would be the first time since the citys incorporation in 1999 that there would be no election. Election Day is scheduled for Nov. 8.Cinque and Keating were the only candidates to file the necessary 60 petitions by July 5 to put their names on the ballot. Filing during the qualifying period noon Aug. 2 until noon Aug. 9 would mean paying a $720 fee.In Marathon, voting is at large, meaning whoever gets the most votes for the open seats is elected. In this case, if there are more than two candidates, the top two votegetters would be elected. But if no other candidates step up, Cinque and Keating would be re-elected to twoyear terms unopposed. The city wouldnt have to hold an election and therefore would save the $36,000 cost of conducting one. The council considered that fact when it decided to place a referendum gauging Marathon residentsdesire for commercial air service at Florida Keys Marathon Airport on the January presidential primary ballot. When that decision was made at the end of June, Cinque noted the city might not have an election. Also, council members felt the presidential primary election would draw a large voter turnout. Cinque seeks his third consecutive term on the council, while Keating is finishing his first.By RYAN McCARTHYrmccarthy@keynoter.comMARATHON Subscriptions 743-5551

Hernandez also suffered a severe injury to the middle finger on his left hand. Gonzalez and Hernandez were flown by helicopter ambulance to the Ryder Trauma Center in Miami. As of Monday, they were listed in stable condition. Gonzalez told detectives she moved to the trailer park, on the bayside near mile marker 101.6, two weeks before the shooting. She lived three lots away from Cordova Sanchez. Aneighbor e-mailed newspapers Monday night to say Cordova Sanchez, who she described as sweet old Roy, had lived peaceably in the park for five years.Gonzalez said Cordova Sanchez was very friendly toward her, on occasion making her uncomfortable with his attentions, said Becky Herrin, information officer for the Sheriffs Office. She said [the suspect] frequently drank alcohol and would become more sexualin his remarks to her.Gonzalez said Hernandez was visiting her Friday when Cordova Sanchez knocked on the door of her trailer. She reportedly told him to leave because she had company.Cordova Sanchez returned a short time later with a gun, shooting both of the victims and then himself, Gonzalez told investigators.Deputies arriving at the trailer park found Gonzalez covered in blood with a gunshot wound in her shoulder, Herrin said. Gonzalez directed deputies to her trailer at Lot 4, where they found the wounded Hernandez, calling for help. Cordova Sanchezs body was inside the trailer with a gun lying near his body.

Stock Island and the city of Marathon appear set for the largest changes when Monroe County Commission as well as School Board and Mosquito Control Board districts are redrawn this summer. County staff is charged with redistricting commission seats every 10 years, after each U.S. census, and is in the process of evening the populations for each of the five areas. According to Growth Management Director Christine Hurley, each district should include as close to 14,618 residents as possible based on Monroes 2010 population of 73,090. Senior Geographic Information Systems Planner Bryan Davisson told the Keynoter that District 2, encompassing Marathon and part of the Lower Keys, is proposed to undergo the most change. Im ... looking at the 2010 census data and doing the best I can to even up the districts because they dont have equal populations, he said. Davisson said the population for each district, according to the 2010 census, is:District 1 (Stock Island) 16,968.District 2 (Marathon and the Lower Keys) 12,596.District 3 (Key West) 15,437.District 4 (Marathon and the Middle Keys) 13,728.District 5 (Upper Keys) 14,361. Davisson said Boca Chica, Big Coppitt, Geiger, Shark and Rockland keys are proposed to become part of District 2 so the District 1 population falls in line. In addition, a portion of District 2, from Knights Key to 30th Street on the oceanside, will become part of District 4. Hurley said she expects public hearings before the County Commission in August and September to amend the law governing the boundaries. We expect well have proposed new districts for them to look at as well as some maps that show the precincts and existing boundaries. We need to get as close as possible to equalizing population in each district, she said. Redistricting locally might not seem like such a big deal since all registered county voters can vote in all commission races, but districts do play a role in elections. For example, in a 2006 School Board election, there were questions about whether a candidate lived on the correct side of the street to run in the district in which she sought election. County Administrator Roman Gastesi said he plans to simplify the numerical order of the districts so theyre in order up and down the Keys. Key West would be 1, Stock Island 2, Lower Keys through part of Marathon 3, part of Marathon through Islamorada 4, and Tavernier through Key Largo 5. Once approved by the commission, new commission districts, as well as those in four other Florida counties, are subject to review by the U.S. Department of Justice due to past voting discrimination. Monroe Supervisor of Elections Harry Sawyer said that goes back to Monroe County not having bilingual ballots in the past. Any time any of these counties change anything to do with voting or how we elect people, it has to be precleared by the Justice Department, he said. Redistricting is one of those things that would change the way we elect our commissioners. Sawyer said the Monroe County School and Florida Keys Mosquito Control districts typically adopt the countys redrawn borders. The state Legislature handles federal and state redistricting. A22-year-old Key Wester was arrested early Saturday morning, charged with multiple felonies and one misdemeanor related to two strong-arm robberies. City police say they connected him to both crimes after he was found with a stolen cell phone the cops had called it, and heard it ringing in his pocket. Stevenson Dorce, of Julia Street in Bahama Village, was out with three friends around 2 a.m. when Key Wester Marcus Diaz told police the group approached him at Simonton and Catherine streets and asked if he needed anything, according to police reports. Diaz told police he replied with an expletive, assuming he was being offered drugs. That prompted a beat-down that left Diaz minus his bicycle and Samsung cell phone, although he did manage to protect his wallet during the melee, reports say. Police quickly found four suspects matching Diazs description sitting on a fence at Nelson English Park; he was able to identify one of his attackers as James Hickson, 24, also of Julia Street. He apparently didnt recognize Dorce. Fast forward to around 4:30 a.m. in the 900 block of Duval Street. Two tourists from Orlando, Daniel Englert and Joshua Adams, flagged down a passing police car and accused Dorce of ripping a silver chain from Englerts neck. The victims told police they fought back over control of the chain, prompting a fistfight that saw Dorce pick up a car rim and beat Adams and Englert with it, according to police reports and witness statements. Once Dorce was in custody, Officer David Hall searched him and found a Samsung phone matching the one Diaz reported stolen two hours earlier. I contacted Key West dispatch, Hall wrote, and had them call the number of the cell phone stolen earlier. The cell phone I located in Dorces pocket began to ring. Dispatch advised the cell phone went to voice mail and it was the victim from the prior robbery on the voice mail. Dorce is charged with two felony counts of robbery by sudden snatching, felony assault and aggravated assault for using the car rim as a weapon, and misdemeanor battery. Hes being held at the Monroe County Detention Center in lieu of $425,000 bond.

James D. Chaplin, 45, was flown by TraumaStar air ambulance to a Miami trauma center with a broken leg, facial wounds and other serious injuries. He is expected to recover. Jamie lost a lot of blood, Bettye Chaplin said Monday. But now hes awake and talking. James Chaplin was operating the familys 29-foot Contender boat, powered by two 225-horsepower outboards, when it struck mangroves in the half-mile area between the 7 Mile Marina and the Seven Mile Bridge, around mile marker 47.5, around 9 p.m.The vessel ran about 80 feet through the mangroves before coming to rest atop a tangle of mangrove roots, according to the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission. If those firemen didnt hear the crash, nobody ever would have found him. He would have bled to death, Bettye Chaplin said. They saved his life. Wed be here wondering what happened to Jamie. Chaplin was alone on the open-fisherman boat, headed toward the Atlantic Ocean on a return from the Keys Fisheries restaurant on the bayside. Bettye Chaplin said James realized it was too dark to navigate and decided to head into the 7 Mile Marina. He missed the channel by about 30 feet. Marina manager Dan Rudacille said a group of rescue personnel on vacation was sitting on a 12th Street dock when they heard the impact. They headed to the scene and were soon joined by local responders.It was a very tricky rescue situation involving a lot of people, said FWC Officer Bobby Dube, an agency spokesman.The console was shoved back and completely collapsed on Jamie, Bettye Chaplin said. He was wedged under the debris and it took some real work to get him out of the boat. [Rescuers] had to crawl back in there.Because of the angle where the boat entered the tangle of mangroves, the scene was nearly invisible. You had to know where it is to find it, Rudacille said.Asalvor company removed the boat, named Chappy Time Monday morning.The boat will repaired and renamed Thank You God , Bettye Chaplin said. In some ways, Jamies just about the luckiest man in the world. All those wonderful rescue people, our Marathon EMTs, the Coast Guard and TraumaStar were all working so hard to save his life. His parents, Bettye and Jim Chaplin, are longtime real-estate professionals in Marathon. James, a Marathon High School graduate, has worked in graphic design and the restaurant business in addition to realestate sales and appraisals. The accident remains under investigation by the FWC. Possible charges are pending toxicology tests.Visiting EMTs credited with saving his lifeMARATHONThis is where the Contender ended up,on a mangrove island near the 7 Mile Marina. People familiar with the crash say if the visiting emergency workers hadnt heard the crash,James Chaplin might not have survived the aftermath.

The financially troubled agency announced Tuesday that it will study 3,653 local offices, branches and stations for possible closing. But many of those may be replaced by village post offices in which postal services are offered in local stores, libraries or government offices. The Keys already have one, sort of the Key Colony Beach post office is in City Hall.

EDITORIALMore numbers not necessarily betterLETTERS TO THE EDITORSelflessness evidentNothing speaks volumes more than an act of kindness at sea, especially when youre a backcountry charter boat captain with a paying customer on board. Many thanks go out to Capt. Mike Makowski, owner of Blackfoot Charters, for his selfless act of kindness. My husband and his brother went out on a charter recently to the Everglades and got stranded at Madera Bay around noon. They had no cell phone service and the charters marine radio battery died so they had no way to contact family. Capt. Mike happened upon the scene after they had been stranded for three hours battling the horrendous mosquitoes and watching an electrical storm front slowly moving toward their direction. He was kind enough to put his charter on hold to help them out, giving them the opportunity to make necessary calls to family and make arrangements for a tow; it would take hours for them to get back to shore. Capt. Mike and his out-of-town charter were gracious enough to bring my husband and his brother on board and bring them back to shore safely. We so rarely take the time to acknowledge and appreciate the goodness in people, which is why Im writing this letter to not only thank Capt. Mike Makowski and his out-of-town guest for going out of their way to rescue them, but to captains Bill Kelly and Ted Benbow for immediately responding to my emergency calls to them for assistance. Good men and great captains equate to courtesy at sea. Thanks so much for taking the time to care and help out; it was greatly appreciated. Kim Sovia-Crandon Key LargoKey West looks at accommodating larger cruise ships, but at what cost to the residentsway of life?Ahouse divided against itself cannot stand. Those familiar with the gospels or Abraham Lincolns famous 1858 speech will recognize those words and what they mean. Its well to keep them in mind when discussing the deeply felt community debate that surrounds a proposal to widen Key Wests ship channel to accommodate larger cruise ships. On one side, you have environmentalists and their supporters whove been battling the cruise ship industry for what seems like at least a generation. On the other side are business interests closely aligned with the tourism industry that count 800,000 cruise ship passengers as key to the citys economic survival. Standing on the sidelines, of course, are those who watch the public purse and worry about losing disembarkation fee revenue from cruise ship passengers. And were not talking chump change the city books nearly $4.5 million from 800,000 passenger landings a year, netting $2.5 million after expenses. So how do we best assess the pros and cons of any future widening, which would allow far larger vessels to make port calls in the Southernmost City? One way is to look at results from a 2005 citycommissioned qualify-of-life study, which came as part of a lawsuit settlement with environmental group Last Stand. The study documented rapid growth in cruise passenger counts, which climbed from 133,000 per year in 1990 to 1.1 million during the 2004-05 study period (it has since fallen back to 800,000). Revenue from disembarkation fees, which once approached nearly 10 percent of the citys operating income, has since declined to around 6.6 percent (a net of $2.5 million in a $38 million operating budget). Public opinion on the value of cruise ships polled back in 2005 showed a community divided, with 38 percent in favor of cruise ship business, 44 percent not. Finally, as it usually does, it will boil down to money. As cruise ships get larger, the thought of disgorging 5,000-plus people for a fourto five-hour port call cant be good for the cruise ship industry or for Key West tourism. Its simply too much in too-confined a space. Commissioner Jimmy Weekley, who has been dealing with this community divide longer than any other Key West commissioner, said it best last year: Should we go after quantity of visitor or quality of visitor? Im inclined to think we should go for quality, not numbers. That makes sense to us and we suspect to at least half the folks in Key West. Why spend more money on studies that will only reach the same impasse when the answer is staring us in the face? Its quality, not quantity, that will keep Key West tourism economically viable. Retain custodiansTo all the Monroe County School Board members who support outsourcing your local low-paying custodial and maintenance employees, stripping them from all health-care insurance and dental and vision care after so many years of dedicated service to our schools, community and students, remember that election time is coming. Good, strong, confident leadership is what this school system is in great need of. It continues to spend recklessly with no accountability. For example, take the $550,000 in accidental payouts to certain teachers, wasting money with the Horace OBryant Middle School project, wasting money purchasing the dilapidated former Marathon Manor building years ago the list goes on, costing taxpayers thousands of dollars. Rather than just outsourcing jobs, why not be creative and think outside the box and propose that custodial and maintenance employees take several furlough days (including high-salaried employees) stretched out throughout the school year and/or one day off a month for employees on alternating days so school duties will not be impacted? These are just a few suggestions that I believe would be beneficial. Im sure that the employees in question will gladly oblige these recommendations as opposed to losing their jobs and their livelihoods. Judy Parker-Michaels ArcadiaFoundation comes throughI wanted to write this letter so everyone in the community can know about the wonderful resources we have here in Monroe County for assistance. I recently needed help getting some legal documentation replaced that was stolen from me. Unfortunately, I didnt have the funds available. I was told that Coldwell Banker Schmitt Real Estate has a charitable foundation in the Florida Keys that can help people with a one-time grant for assistance for things of this nature. I went to the Center for Independent Living and my workers Aleisa McGuirl and Rachael Cohen helped me fill out the paperwork and get it into them by the deadline. Afew weeks later, I head from the Coldwell Banker Schmitt Charitable Foundation and they had written the check to the organization I needed to pay to get my replacement documents. I am writing this letter to thank the foundation for its assistance, as these documents are greatly needed and if it wasnt for their generosity, I dont know how I could have ever replaced them. Suzanne Zirk Key LargoSuccesses highlightedI would like to recognize and thank our members, sponsors and guests that attended Reef Reliefs 24th annual members meeting at the Pier House Resort on July 18. The meeting highlighted ongoing Reef Relief programs and celebrated the many successes over the past year. Just a few of last years many accomplishments include Reef Relief staff and volunteers removing nearly three tons of marine debris from nearshore waters; the Discover Coral Reefs School Program was presented to more than 800 thirdand fourthgrade students in Monroe County; and in only the fourth year of Coral Camp, we were honored to be invited to present the camp at the National Marine Educators Conference in Boston. We also helped defeat legislation that would have retracted our progress to shut down the sewage outfalls in South Florida, in turn protecting and preserving water quality within the Biscayne Aquifer supplying water to the Florida Keys. These accomplishments and many more are made possible only through the support of Reef Relief members, partners, sponsors, foundations and volunteers. We would especially like to thank guest presenters Florida Keys National Marine Sanctuary Superintendent Sean Morton; Billy Causey, southeast regional manager of the National Marine Sanctuary Program, who presented this years State of the Reef address; Chris Berg, Florida Keys director of the Nature Conservancy, for presenting the conservancys Reef Resiliency Program; David Vaughan of Mote Marine Laboratory for presenting the latest long-spined sea urchin research; and Reef Relief scientific advisor Dr. James Porter for his report on storm-damaged elkhorn coral recovery. Thanks also to the Pier House Resort and Spa, Margaritaville Cafe, Bobalus, the Old Town Mexican Cafe, Turtle Kraals, Alonzos Oyster Bar, the Half Shell Raw Bar, Salsa Loca, Key West Cakes and Coles Peace Bakery for their generous donations. Millard McCleary Program director Reef Relief Key WestCamp hits right noteWe just wanted to thank Rev. Debra Maconaughey for a fantastic week of music camp that culminated in an amazing performance by all the kids that attended. The enthusiasm and spirit at that concert was awesome and left us smiling from ear to ear.

Debra for bringing this program to our community. Arno, Sharon and Lucas Silva MarathonCut,cut,cut and cut moreFighting and scaring us with raising the debt ceiling? It is simple: Cut spending. There are billions of dollars they could cut salaries of Congress and benefits, cars, trucks and SUVs. They buy too many and dont get full use out of the ones they do buy. Cut the size of government and salaries of government officials across the U.S. Cut foreign aid and bring troops home. Do something about illegal immigration. Let the troops help us out on the borders. Cut pork-barrel spending. Cut unneeded programs, especially those that resemble one another. Then we will have billions and billions of dollars to cut the debt afterward. Do this year after year. Oh, it will take years to get this complete, not the budget cutting that is now going on. Let there be no congressional raise or benefits until it is back to before the debt was out of whack. By doing all that and more that I have not suggested, it can happen.

Herctor Hernandez, 36; Robert Twist Jr., 59; and Stephen Salyer, 42, will appear before Monroe County Circuit Court Judge Luis Garcia for various motions, according to court dockets. Hernandez, 36, was arrested last August on multiple counts of molesting two young girls while they lived in his Key Largo home three years earlier. Both girls now reportedly live outside Florida. Hernandez has pleaded not guilty. His defenders say the allegations are false, spurred by the girlsmother, a former Hernandez girlfriend. The investigation started in April 2010 after one of the girls reportedly told her mother that Hernandez twice assaulted her and forced her to perform sexual acts. The second girl then told investigators that Hernandez also sexually assaulted her numerous times over the years and had intercourse with her.Hernandez previously was convicted of charges in two 2007 burglaries linked to a crime spree led by convicted Key Largo burglar Sammy Santamaria, who is still serving a state prison sentence.Twists arrest on July 20, 2010, drew national attention when the defendant a caretaker at the Plantation Key estate of Super Bowlwinning coach Jimmy Johnson barricaded himself in a cottage on the oceanfront property.A10-year-old girl had accused Twist of fondling her a week earlier. Aware of the allegations, Twist reportedly threatened suicide. When deputies arrived at the estate, the caretaker brandished a gun and shouted at officers to shoot him. Astandoff along Old Highway lasted four hours before Twist surrendered. Sexual-abuse counts were lodged six days later. Twist remains jailed under a $350,000 bond. Salyer, a former property manager at a Key Largo resort, was arrested in January on charges of having sexual intercourse with a relative on multiple occasions, beginning when she was 11 years old. The girl was 12 when she reportedly became pregnant by Salyer. The pregnancy was aborted. He faces three felony counts of sexual battery by a custodial adult and one count each of sexual battery of someone under 12, lewd and lascivious molestation of someone under 12, cruelty toward a child causing pregnancy, and incest. Salyer remains jailed under a $550,000 bond. No trial date has been announced in any of the cases.Three charged in separate criminal casesIN THE COURTSBy KEVIN WADLOWSenior Staff Writer email@example.com HERNANDEZ SALYER DOTawards $41.5M Roosevelt contractAlthough bids returned in June far exceeded the estimated project cost, officials with the Florida Department of Transportation have awarded a $41.5 million contract to The De Moya Group Inc. to undertake a two-year reconstruction of North Roosevelt Boulevard in Key West. The original estimate calculated by DOTpegged the cost at $33 million. The state has two local partners in the Florida Keys Aqueduct Authority and city of Key West; they will kick in $5.4 million to replace water lines and $4.3 million for a sewer force main, respectively. The remainder of the cost, more than $31 million, will be borne by the state. DOTposted the contract award on its Web site this week; bids were opened June 22. Work is slated to start in April or May 2012, after the high tourism season; however the Miami-based contractor wants to start in January, according to Key West Chamber of Commerce Executive Vice President Virginia Panico. The total project is expected to take 820 working days; that doesnt include weekends and blackout dates designed to accommodate events like Fantasy Fest.During the two-plus years of work, North Roosevelt will become two lanes of traffic inbound, with a temporary bike lane. Outbound traffic will be shifted to Flagler Avenue and South Roosevelt Boulevard.By SEAN KINNEYskinney@keynoter.comKEY WEST
The coming closure of the Borders Express and Voltaire bookstores in Key West will put more than a dozen people on the hunt for new jobs over the next several weeks and leave the Southernmost City with just two dedicated bookstores. Right now, Borders Express13 primarily parttime employees are working with the company in charge of liquidating the stores inventory, currently priced at 10 percent off, assistant manager Hank Squires said Monday. Borders Group Inc. filed for bankruptcy protection in February, shuttering hundreds of stores and laying off thousands of employees; still, it wasnt able to salvage its business. The bankruptcy court last week approved liquidation of its remaining 399 stores to satisfy creditors. Some in Key West were holding onto hope that the store was on the list of 30 stores that Books-A-Million wanted to take over from Borders. But that deal fell apart, Books-A-Million announced Tuesday. Squires says hes worked at the Borders Express for six of the 20 years hes lived in the Keys, and hell be sad to see it go. Theres been a bookstore in that location for at least 20 years, he says. He recalled the stores effort to get back in business in 2005, when Hurricane Wilmas storm surge caused so much damage that the Roosevelt Boulevard building had to be stripped back the concrete. I dont want to be out of a job, of course, but Im also upset that the bookstore is going away, he said. Borders had been in business for 40 years. At the companys peak in 2003, it operated 1,249 Borders and Waldenbooks stores. But it failed to adapt quickly to the changing industry and lost book, music and video sales to retailers who did. Meanwhile, smaller independent bookseller Voltaire Books is a few weeks away from closing the doors for good on its store at 330 Simonton St. When Voltaire first opened five years ago, the owners were confident they were offering a unique mix that would succeed in a business rife with failures. But as another long-term lease signing loomed, owner Christopher Kush said, he and partner Kevin Schultze had to make a tough decision about the store, which was managed from day one by Peter Rogers. Financially, we are breaking even at this point, but our lease is ending and we are just not sure we can commit to another fiveyear lease in the book business, Kush said. Prices will be discounted 50 percent starting today, he said, with the stores final day coming sometime in early August. I cannot really blame our customers they were amazingly supportive, Kush said. With the closure of Borders and Voltaire, Key West will have two businesses that exclusively sell books:Key West Island Books on Fleming Street and Bargain Books & News Stand on Truman Avenue.

One of four former Maryland police officers controversially hired for leadership positions in the law enforcement arm of the federal agency that regulates commercial and recreational fishing is retiring at the end of the month. Hal Robbins, special agent in charge of law enforcement in the National Marine Fisheries Services southeast division, which includes Florida, was part of a group of retired Maryland cops who attained top positions despite having little or no experience in natural resources. Sources also say the four were too old to be hired as first-time federal agents, did not have to meet physical requirements for their jobs and did not complete federal law-enforcement training. Robbins, 63, was hired in 2004 by Dale Jones, then the director of the Fisheries Services Office of Law Enforcement. Robbins did not respond to questions for this report. Jones; Robbins; Mark Spurrier, the former assistant director of the Office of Law Enforcement; and Mark Paterni, the current assistant director, all knew each other from their time working at local police agencies in Maryland. Jones was hired in May 1999 when he was 42, Spurrier was hired in November 1999 at age 44. Paterni was hired in June 2002 when he was 52. Robbins was hired in June 2004 when he was 56.The age limit for first-time federal special agents is 37, government guidelines say. Last year, Jones was reassigned to a non-law enforcement position and took a $3,000 pay cut to $152,000 a year after a Commerce Department inspector general reported that Jonesagents harassed New England and MidAtlantic commercial fishermen with excessive fines and overzealous enforcement, and used a $7.5 million asset-forfeiture fund fed by those fines to pay for 200 cars, a luxury boat and foreign travel.The inspector generals report also said Jones and then-Assistant Director Spurrier destroyed 80 percent of the documents in Jones office before auditors with the Commerce Departments Office of Inspector General began their investigation. The National Marine Fisheries Service is part of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration. The Jones scandal has rocked NOAAand made its chief, Administrator Jane Lubchenco, a target of several senior lawmakers. In July 2010, John Tierney and Barney Frank, Massachusetts congressmen, wrote a letter calling for Lubchenco to resign because she reassigned Jones and his deputy, Spurrier, rather than firing them.Jones was reassigned and given the title of fishing program specialist, a position involved in the National Marine Fisheries Services trade-monitoring program. Spurrier was transferred from the Fisheries Service to the National Institute of Standards and Technology, another Department of Commerce agency. He works in the public safety department. Sources say the hiring of Robbins was one of the more egregious examples of Jones getting around federal lawenforcement practices to hire people he knew from Maryland during the five years he served as police chief of Hagerstown in the 1990s. Robbins was chief of the Annapolis Police Department from 1990 until 1994, according to his biography.Once they saw they could do some little things and get away with it, it grew and grew, said retired special agent Steven Coker. Agents say the decision to hire Robbins over experienced fisheries agents or agents working in other agencies caused morale to tailspin in the southeast region, and tension within the agency remains to this day. This is the only federal law-enforcement agency where key jobs are given to outsiders, an agent wrote in a July 7, 2006, complaint to the Commerce Departments Office of Inspector General.

D Buckson is new top fisheries copBruce Buckson, whose early career saw him enforce fishery laws in the Florida Keys, has been named director of the Office of Law Enforcement for fisheries in the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration the top fisheries cop in the U.S. He succeeds Acting Director Alan Risenhoover, who will return to his permanent assignment as director of sustainable fisheries at NOAA. Buckson starts his new job on Sept. 4. He is now deputy director of field services and training for boating and waterways with the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission. Buckson got his start on Sept. 13, 1982, with what was then called the Florida Department of Natural Resources (now the Department of Environmental Protection), serving as a marine officer.From Jan. 29, 1988, until Aug. 1, 1991, he was a patrol sergeant in Monroe County with the then-Florida Marine Patrol (the FWC was created in 1999 through a merger with the Marine Patrol and Game and Fresh Water Fish Commission).From there, Buckson went on to become a patrol captain in Hillsborough County, a major in Citrus County, and the statewide fisheries enforcement coordinator and assistant to the chief of the Florida Marine Patrol in Tallahassee. He was named to his current position on Dec. 28, 2007.In his new role at NOAA Fisheries, Buckson will direct more than 200 employees, including special agents and enforcement officers, who work out of national headquarters, six divisional offices and 52 field offices throughout the United States and U.S. territories.Hes received numerous awards in his career for contributions to fisheries conservation and advocacy for consistency in fisheries enforcement, including the National Fish and Wildlife Foundations Guy Bradley Leadership and Lifetime Achievement Award. Thats named for a Monroe County Sheriffs Office deputy who was shot to death on July 8, 1905, while trying to arrest a poacher who was killing egrets for their feathers; it happened in the Everglades. Bradley was the second Florida Keys deputy killed in the line of duty, and the first wildlife officer in the U.S. to die while enforcing the law.He spent three years as Keys marine officerNOAA FISHERIES BUCKSONKeynoter StaffNOAA FISHERIES NEWS BRIEFSJensen Beach man wins Papa contestAwhite-bearded 64year-old Florida man on Saturday won the annual Ernest Hemingway lookalike competition at Sloppy Joes Bar in Key West.Matt Gineo of Jensen Beach, dressed in a wool fishermans sweater to emulate photographer Yousuf Karshs famous portrait of Hemingway, bested 120 other entrants after an unprecedented tie-breaker vote. It was Gineos 12th try.This was something that I had in my heart to do, but I didnt know how many years it would take, Gineo said.Gineo, a biomedical engineer, said he shares Hemingways fondness for sportfishing and writing. Saturday nights Papa Hemingway Look-Alike Contest is a highlight of Key Wests annual Hemingway Days, which ended Sunday.Two dozen finalists garbed in sportsmens attire, culled from 121 contestants, were judged by past winners.Other finalists included Arne Inge-Mathisen of Gjettum, Norway, who wore a black armband to commemorate the victims of Fridays attacks on Norways government headquarters and a youth retreat. Hemingway lived in Key West in the 1930s and was prolific in his writing while in the Southernmost City. His house on Whitehead Street is now a museum. Associated Press Agents say the decision to hire Robbins over experienced fisheries agents or agents working in other agencies caused morale to tailspin in the southeast region.

But team leaders reapplied and sent an appeal to the White House. The government reconsidered and granted the team a license to travel to Cuba, which is did from July 14 to 20. Overall, the Strikers came in third among five teams. The standings: Team Marianao, Team Cerro, Key West Strikers, Team Plaza and Team Playa. In their final game, the Strikers took on Team Playa and came out firing and scored early when Adam Swiecicki was tripped in the box and scored on a penalty kick. Early in the second half, Jack Behmke headed in a Patrick Matysik corner kick for a 2-0 lead. Alittle while later it was deja vu a Behmke score off a Matysik corner kick. Key West maintained the shutout to win 3-0. Key West, coached by Tom Coward, hopes to renew the license annually and send a team to Cuba each year. Players are Swiecicki, Behmke, Matyski, Kody Tomita, Kevin Coward, Spencer Hamilton, Dylan Spencer, Noah Cutchin, Brian Coward, Eric Whiteside, Danny Kearney and Alistair Fergus.Youth team finishes third in tournamentYOUTH SOCCER The Strikers get ready to take the field in Cuba.They are (standing from left) Kody Tomita, Kevin Coward,Adam Swiecicki,Spencer Hamilton,Jack Behmke,Dylan Spencer,Noah Cutchin and Coach Tom Coward;and (kneeling) Brian Coward,Eric Whiteside,Danny Kearney,Patrick Matysik,and Alistair Fergus. This is the opening ceremony,with teams lined up behind their nationsflags.The Strikers are on the right.Both the Cuban and American national anthems were played. Beware the winds while lobsteringStep outside and youll notice its a tad breezy for July. Thats because a tropical system to the south of our islands is creating 15-knot winds and choppy seas. Seas are projected to reach 4 to 6 feet beyond the reef, and 1 to 3 feet inside the reef and on the bayside. So what that means for lobster mini-season, which is today and Thursday, is use extra caution, say the U.S. Coast Guard and Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission. The rough seas may force many lobster-hunters in to the protected bay and bridge areas, causing greater congestion. While being cautious and courteous of your fellow boaters, also be mindful of the rules and regulations for lobstering. If you need reminders of the specifics, see pages 4Aand 5Aof this newspaper. But in general, be sure to have a legal-size dive flag (20 inches by 24 inches) flying from the highest point on your boat and visible for 360 degrees. Display your flag at all times when you have divers in the water looking for lobsters and take it down when theyre back in the boat. At the same time, when you see a boat anchored but with no dive flag displayed, its safe to assume there are folks in the water and the boat owner forgot to display the flag. Boaters must be at idle speed within 300 feet of a diver. I was dismayed to read of a lobster poacher taking lobster out of season in Marathon on Sunday. The regs are simple: Keeper-size lobster must have at least a 3-inch carapace (the distance from the point behind the eyes to the end of the torso where the tail section begins). The limit in Monroe County is six legal-size lobster per person per day. Thats it. Respect the fishery. On Monday, the commercial lobstermen are permitted to put their gear in the water in preparation for their first pull and the beginning of regular lobster season on Aug. 6. The prep work that starts Monday is locally known as the soak season. Why? When this fresh gear is in the water, the ropes are not yet thoroughly soaked and they will float. Give yourself ample room when navigating around the trap buoys or you may end up with the rope wrapped around your lower unit or props. Bad for you and bad for the lobstermen. Back to the fish: For those angling the next few days, the wind and choppy seas may keep you from heading offshore for dolphin, but there are plenty of inshore options. We continue our summer pattern of snapper and grouper fishing. The 75to 80-foot depths and deeper will provide the best action on the reef, especially for grouper, as they are seeking cooler, more comfortable climes. Fishing for all variety of snapper on the reef is mostBut also take advantage of other fisheriesFISHING THE FLORIDA KEYS Chris Johnson CaptainsColumn Jeff Berardelli,meteorologist for television station CBS4 in Miami,and his dad Richard display a couple of the mangrove snapper they caught while fishing with SeaSquared Charters. Fort Myers crew wins DrambuieTwo Fort Myers anglers caught and released their first blue marlins that garnered their Moppy Dick II team top honors and a $25,000 first-place cash prize at the Drambuie Key West Marlin Tournament that ended Saturday. Dan Richards released his fish, estimated to weigh 100 pounds, Saturday and Harry Cameron reeled in his approximately 150-pound marlin Friday, the second day of the three-day contest. Ironically, both fish were caught on the same green-and-yellow jethead lure within a mile of each other and about the same time in the mid-morning. That was our strategy Saturday, said Bob Beasley, another angler from Fort Myers Beach. We wanted to go back to the same place and see if we could get lucky again. The boats captain, Ronald Lea, a retired optometrist from Fort Myers Beach, was elated with the victory and thanked owner Richard Haskins of Fort Myers, who was not onboard for the victory. He had sponsored us all these years even though weve never caught anything, Lea said. When he gets his voicemail, hell be extremely surprised. On Course captained by Bill Curry of Tampa, took second place with a blue marlin released Saturday by angler Mike Zalewski of Seminole. That release was combined with an 18.95-pound dolphin caught Thursday by Ryan Harrington of Tierra Verde, Fla., and a 25.9pound dolphin caught Friday by Bob Dietz of Tampa. The Blue Heaven with Tampa angler Steve Swindale, released a blue marlin and caught a 16.85pound wahoo for third place with Capt. Ed Thompson of Tarpon Springs. The contest, held during Key Wests annual Hemingway Days, attracted about 250 anglers who fished on 44 boats, according to tournament director Tim Greene.Quartet takes home a cool $25,000 prizeKEY WEST FISHINGAlmost anything goes in this regattaVisitors to Key Largo can decide what floats their boat during a wacky spectator event in which teams race boats constructed out of household materials. The Anything That Floats regatta race is set for Aug. 19 and 20. Acaptainsparty is scheduled for 7 p.m. Aug. 19 Senor Frijoles, mile marker 103.9 bayside. The next day is race day, with team check-in beginning at 2 p.m. and race events beginning at 3. Resourceful crews of two, four or more people are expected to reuse, recycle and regenerate materials found around the house literally anything that floats to construct their boats. Materials might include wood, PVC, jugs, buckets, pool noodles, plastic wrap, lawn furniture or cardboard. Teams even can use a roll of all-purpose duct tape to hold it all together and old T-shirts to hoist as sails, as long as all participants are contained within their vessel. Oars and paddles are allowed but motors, foam, floats, rafts or pool toys are not. Teams navigate a halfmile buoyed course from Key Largos Caribbean Club to Sundowners and back. Both waterfront locations offer excellent viewing areas for spectators to watch the wacky water race. Prizes are to be awarded in categories such as best-costumed crew, most creative vessel, fastest vessel, best hard-luck story and vessel containing the most participants that still floats.

Predominant during the day are yellowtails, while at night the mangroves reign supreme. The wrecks are loaded with mutton snapper, amberjack and jack crevalle. Ive also had reports of kingfish and large cero mackerel. Mangrove snapper fishing in the bay is a great option on a windy day. Once youve caught dinner, try your hand at catch-andrelease shark fishing in the sandy shallows of the bay.The weeks bestFor their first time fishing in the Atlantic Ocean, Ryan and Gary Love of Bartow fished with Islamoradas Capt. Greg Poland. They caught a few bonito and small dolphin and then had a blast with some sharks. The crew at Captain Pips Marina and Hideaway in Marathon hosted groups from near and far with offshore charters as well as trips to the reef. Their anglers caught dolphin ranging from schoolie size all the way to a 30pound bull. They also had a night snapper trip that produced a good catch of nicesize mangroves. Capt. Jeff Shelar, of Catch-Em-All Charters out of Captain Pips, found dolphin in the 10to 22-pound class 30-plus miles offshore of Marathon. In the bay, his anglers had lots of action, with everything from blue runners to 200-pound Goliath grouper. Dave Dunmore, from Grand Rapids, Mich., caught a 32pound permit. Finnz-Up Charters at the Blackfin Resort in Marathon, with Capt. Bob Crockett at the helm, introduced first-time anglers from Brazil to the glories of fishing in the Florida Keys. Fast learners, they brought in some dolphin for dinner. My deckhand, Jason Bell, and I continued our summer pattern of hosting families aboard SeaSquared Charters. Last week we had groups from New Jersey, Georgia, Florida and the United Kingdom. We fished the reef for yellowtail, mangrove and mutton snapper, the bridge for porgy and Florida Bay for catch-andrelease shark fishing. Capt. Moe Mottice, of Reel Lucky Charters out of the dock at Turtle Kraals in Key West, reports big action anywhere from 45 to 110 feet just off the reef for yellowtail and mangrove snapper. Inshore, tarpon ranging from 24 to 125 pounds wreck havoc on his anglers arms just five minutes from his dock. His evening tarpon/shark trips have been very popular, with lemons and blacktips providing plenty of action.Casting for CharityAnd remember, Capt.

According to researchers, coral species utilize a reef-building and reproductive strategy by releasing millions of gametes once a year in synchronized mass-spawning rituals. The spectacular white excretion enables the eggs and sperm to enter the water in massive quantities, maximizing the chances of fertilization and overwhelming predators with more food than they can consume. When egg and sperm unite, the resulting larvalstage planula ascends to the surface to drift in the current and grow. Eventually, within days or months, the planula settles to the bottom to grow into a polyp. The polyp then develops into a coral head by asexual budding, creating new polyps. What triggers this fragile phenomenon remains unclear, though scientific observations indicate a strong connection between the coral spawn and seasonal lunar cycles as well as water temperatures, tidal and 24-hour light cycles. Cultured corals, the result of wild transplant efforts by Key Largos Coral Restoration Foundation, also have been discovered spawning. Though the polyp release cannot be guaranteed to happen on the exact date, this year full moons fall on Aug. 13 and Sept. 12. Divers can inquire with local dive operators about participating in scheduled coral-spawning night dives on and around those dates.Coral spawn likely to fall on full moonsDIVING Photo by LAD ADKINS/REEFThis shows what divers can expect during the coral spawn,which this year could fall on Aug.13 and Sept.12.

LivingYacht chef has appetite for adventureVictoria Allman has whipped up chocolate chiffon cake for captains of industry and salmon tartar for Brazilian socialites. She has shopped for fresh produce at the crack of dawn in markets from the Bahamas to Tahiti. And shes done it all with a smile while working 18-hour days pampering the wealthy aboard super yachts that travel the high seas. Allman, 38, is a Fort Lauderdale-based chef who, as she puts it, has followed her stomach around the globe on five charter yachts for the past dozen years. Now shes published her second cookbook/ memoir, SEAsoned: A Chefs Journey with Her Captain ($15.95, Norlights Press), chronicling her journey with her husband on his first assignment as a captain. At turns intimate, earnest, self-effacing and entertaining, SEAsoned describes the obnoxiously demanding couple who treat their dog as a child, a randy guest who tries to seduce one of the crew and a 5-year-old who makes a mean macaroni and cheese. It offers tale after gastronomic tale about perfecting the culinary craft in a tiny galley while pleasing a very picky bunch. Oh, and the book has recipes. All the stories are true, Allman says with a laugh. Ive just left out or changed the names. In addition to the three daily meals and assorted snacks and party food she prepares for guests, Allman must also cook for the crew. She now works aboard the Cocoa Bean, a 140-foot yacht with a staff of nine. Her husband, Patrick Allman, is the captain and her boss. Theirs is an exclusive clientele. Charter costs range from about $50,000 a week for a 100-foot yacht to $1 million for a 200-footer plus food and fuel costs that can run to the tens of thousands of dollars, Allman said.Luxury,hard workMake no mistake about it. For all the pampered luxury that surrounds them, yacht chefs work hard, really hard. Their bosses guests who change almost every week expect top-notch service and gourmet food around the clock. If they want dinner at 5 a.m. after a night of clubbing in Cannes or St. Tropez, Allman must sprint from her bunk and cook it. Its always with a smile, she says. Its always the same answer, Of course, no problem. But doesnt she get exhausted? Doesnt she grow exasperated with the sometimes-infantile demands? I like the adrenaline rush, she says. Every day is different, and I like that. I just cant imagine myself working a 9-to-5 job. Theres also the element of gastronomic adventure. At every port, Allman has learned a new recipe, a new technique, a new spice. In the chapter Love Da Tings You Do, she writes about Vivian, a Bahamian woman who teaches her how to make coconut bread. The chapter is full of color and wisdom, including a quote for the ages from Vivian: You gots to love the tings you do for people. I just love doing these tings. It isnt work if you love it. One of her last chapters, Marrakech Meanderings, is as much travelogue as cookbook as she describes a typical Moroccan scene: Cauldrons of snails bubbled in broth, sending a woodsy aroma through the air. Roasted sheeps head lay in wait of adventurous eaters. Carts heaped with dates, apricots and figs sat beside mountains of almonds and walnuts. Snake charmers lulled both serpent and audience with haunting melodies, while fireeaters rallied the crowds with daredevil performances. SEAsoned is Allmans sequel to Sea Fare: AChefs Journey Across the Ocean, which tracks her first season as a chef on luxury yachts. Its a momentous year. Not only is she thousands of miles away from her Canadian home and family, but she meets her future husband, Patrick, on her third day on the job.Interests meldWriting, like cooking, has always interested Allman, so she decided to wed the two interests early in her career. She also writes a column, Dishing It Up, for Dockwalk, a magazine for super-yacht captains and crew. In the June issue, she recounts her unusual adventure trying to smoke eight salmon fillets with a pistol-shaped contraption called the Smoking Gun. Trouble of the fire-extinguisher kind ensues. Lauren Beck, Dockwalk editor, says Allmans first story for the magazine, about cooking for a collection of crew members from various countries, was so popular that she was offered the monthly column. She knows how to put together a sentence and shes got a great sense of humor, Beck says. She puts you right in the scene. You can really visualize what shes writing about. Allman got her first restaurant job at 16, washing dishes, at her home north of Toronto. The chef suggested a private culinary school and she applied, an unusual move in a town where the rest of her 29 high school classmates stayed in the immediate vicinity. After graduation, the 20-yearold headed for Calgary, where she worked at restaurants. Though she loved the city, Allman hungered for new horizons. At the urging of a friend in yachting, she quit her job, leased out her condo and drove alone to Fort Lauderdale, a 3,300-mile, seven-day trek. Her parents were supportive, though neither had traveled far. Outside on one trip to Florida, my mother had not ever been on a plane, Allman says. She landed a job immediately, but acquiring her sea legs took a while. Youre not just planning dinner for one night, she said. On a yacht, youre planning for one week or three weeks and you have to order your provisions ahead of time. And some guests have unusual predilections. One businessman, for example, requested hot sauce, so she bought three bottles for the voyage, more than enough under normal circumstances. But we were in Tahiti, in the middle of nowhere, and he used half a bottle at the first lunch, she recalls. She had more hot sauce flown in at an exorbitant price. The Allmans spend about a month a year in their Fort Lauderdale home.Allman travels seas cooking for mega-richBy ANA VECIANA-SUAREZMiami HeraldTHE DINNER TABLE BIG PINE Business Directory This is Victoria Allmans poached shrimp with corn and cherry tomato salad.

Ahi tuna and duck are more the ticket. I think theres more than enough pesticides and chemicals and that kind of stuff in human food, Gabriels owner, Jason Lanum, says on a recent expedition to the Urban Pet, a Los Angeles specialty pet store. I eat natural food, and I dont see any reason why I shouldnt give it to my cat. These days, our pets may be eating better than we are. Big-box pet stores and precious pet boutique shelves are increasingly stocked with gourmet edibles that are cornfree, wheat-free, locally sourced, byproduct-free, freerange, minimally processed and raw. Many come with homey, inviting labels, and some look palatable even for humans. At Petco, a number of locations now have a wood-floored store-within-astore for natural foods. And if you think your pets diet is still lacking, you can bolster it with supplements containing brewers yeast, alfalfa, blueberries and more that promise shiny coats, bright eyes and limber joints. As more of us turn toward more healthful foods, were doing the same for our pets, and the market has caught on. If theres a trend in human food and supplements, youll see it on the pet food aisle, said Bob Vetere, president of American Pet Products Association, based in Greenwich, Conn. Gluten-free, vitamin supplemented, breed-specific, senior formulas all of these have taken over the pet marketplace, and were seeing the competition increasing. Its a matter of debate whether these foods are appreciably better for pets than the standard megabrands but just as with debates on human foods, passions can run high. Some pet owners are sure that the mega-brand foods are wreaking havoc on our petsconstitutions, and some veterinarians arent too hot on them, either, while other vets think theyre just fine. From the scientific point of view, is there objective evidence that any commercial diet leads to a better outcome than any other? says Dr. Tony Buffington, a professor of veterinary clinical sciences at Ohio State University. If there is, Im not aware of it. Fully 72.9 million homes 62 percent of U.S. households own a pet, up from 56 percent in 1988, the American Pet Products Association has reported. And we spend big bucks on our furry, winged and scaly friends. Retail pet food sales were $18.4 billion in 2010, up 2.8 percent from 2009, according to the Packaged Facts, a market research company, and natural pet food sales were $1.5 billion in 2009, up from $689 million in 2005. The company predicts that sales of natural foods will probably outdo overall pet food sales in the next five years. The cost of natural foods can be significantly higher: A 6.6-pound package of Evo grain-free dry cat food, for example, sells for about $19, compared with roughly $10 for a 6.3-pound bag of Friskies. Simply put, our attitude toward pets has evolved, says Dr. Nancy Scanlan, a practicing veterinarian and executive director of the Marylandbased American Holistic Veterinary Medical Association. More owners are treating their pets like one of the family. They seek food they believe is more wholesome and natural compared with large commercial brands. They want food free of byproducts (animal parts such as feet, ears and snout), food they hope will alleviate allergies or gut problems, and think that grain-free food and raw food (sold frozen or dehydrated) are healthier options for animals that wouldnt eat corn in the wild. Many owners moved to specialty foods after the 2007 recall of brands found to be contaminated with melamine.FDA must approvePet foods are regulated by the Food and Drug Administration, which requires the food to be safe, produced under sanitary conditions and bear truthful labels. The agency also makes sure manufacturers back up any claims on the packaging, such as controls tartar or eliminates hairballs. The food is also overseen by the Association of American Feed Control Officials, a voluntary organization made up of local, state and federal agencies. It sets the definitions for ingredients if meat is listed, for example, the kind of meat has to be specified and sets minimum and maximum amounts for certain ingredients and nutrients. Some states have additional requirements. Sometimes, in fact, pets may be sold short by more natural and healthful-seeming options. AJanuary review of five raw dog and cat food diets in the Canadian Veterinary Journal two commercial and three homemade found that three out of the five were low in calcium and phosphorus and two were deficient in potassium, magnesium and zinc. The authors concluded that raw food may hypothetically be a nutritional risk for pets (though better studies are needed) and that it may also pose a risk of infectious disease to both pets and people. But other times, paying more dough may pay off for a pet. A2002 study in the American Journal of Veterinary Research compared meat meal to lessexpensive corn gluten meal (a byproduct of corn milling that is a common ingredient in major pet food brands) as a protein source in dry cat food. After feeding the different foods to eight healthy adult cats (evenly split between males and females) then analyzing their urine, the researchers found that meat meal was more digestible than gluten meal, and absorption and retention of nitrogen, calcium, phosphorus and magnesium were better with meat protein too.Buyer bewareBuyers should beware when reading labels just as they should in the grocery store. Just because a pet food markets itself as grain free or byproduct free doesnt necessarily mean it will make a difference to an animals health, says Dr. Jennifer Larsen, a veterinarian and professor of clinical nutrition at the University of California at Davis. Food doesnt have to prove health benefits, she says. Unless an individual pet has a specific documented intolerance to a certain type of grain, theres no advantage. Furthermore, a grainfree food isnt necessarily higher in protein, Larsen adds. It can still contain ingredients such as tapioca and peas. Often those diets are simply high in fat.Owners looking for food thats byproduct-freeMcClatchy TribuneOUR PETS Tropical Springs Realty 103400 Overseas Hwy.

The usual labels with small warnings of the potential risks of smoking including harming unborn children or causing cancer will be supersized with graphic warnings, according to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration. The FDAannounced last month new, larger warning labels will be on packs of cigarettes sold in the U.S., starting in September 2012. The mandatory labels will have visual warnings showing potential outcomes of smoking, such as photos of cancer victims, diseased lungs, mouth cancer and tracheotomies. Next falls revamped warnings mark the first change in content in warning labels in 25 years. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention found health warnings on cigarette packs prompted smokers to think about quitting and prominent, pictorial warnings are most effective in communicating the health risks of smoking. If the pictures on the packs arent enough to prompt people to quit, the Florida Keys Area Health Education Center has a comprehensive quit-smoking program. Among the most basic tips:When you first try to quit, change your routine.Get rid of all cigarettes and ashtrays in your home, car or workplace.Ask your family, friends and co-workers for support.Stay in nonsmoking areas.Breathe in deeply when you feel the urge to smoke.Keep yourself busy.Reward yourself often.Reduce stress.Distract yourself from urges to smoke.Plan something enjoyable to do every day.Drink a lot of water and other fluids. To find out about quitsmoking classes in the Keys, call the Area Health Education Center at 7437111.
