Scott Greager, owner of Holiday Seafood in Key West, is accused of buying and selling lobster caught by charter captain Rush Maltz and Big Pine Key resident Titus Werner. The charges, according to a 13-page federal indictment unveiled Thursday, are that Maltz and Werner were allegedly diving on illegal lobster habitat, or casitas, and taking more than their commercial daily bag limit of 250 lobsters. Prosecutors say that between May 2007 and March 2009, Greager purchased what he knew to be illegally caught lobster and sold the catch to two unnamed Miami seafood distributors. Greager is scheduled to enter a plea before U.S. District Judge Jose Martinez at 2 p.m. Friday at the federal courthouse on Simonton Street in Key West; Maltz and Werner are set for arraignment Aug. 19. All face up to 10 years in prison if convicted on felony charges of conspiracy to illegally harvest lobster and sale of illegally harvested lobster. Assistant U.S. Attorney Thomas Watts-FitzGerald, head of the environmental crimes unit for the U.S. Attorneys Office in Miami, said agents from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration led the investigation. He declined to say why crimes that allegedly took place more than two years ago just now resulted in charges. But contained in the indictment, which details multiple transactions among Greager and Maltz and Werner, is an outline of a particularly busy week in August 2008.Prosecutors allege that between the 9th and 16th that month, Greager bought 5,435Feds: Keys trio illegally caught and sold thousands of poundsBy SEAN KINNEYskinney@keynoter.comFEDERAL FISHERIES HUMAN ENDURANCEMiami Herald photo by WALTER MICHOTDiana Nyad has tried twice to swim from Cuba to Key West.Her latest attempt ended in the middle of the Florida Straits early Tuesday morning.Nyad cuts short swim from Cuba to Key WestWind conditions and less than ideal currents prompted marathon swimmer Diana Nyad to end her second bid to swim from Cuba to the Florida Keys about halfway through her journey early Tuesday. Elaine Lafferty, who was on the boat according to Nyads blog, posted on Twitter: Its over. That was about 12:45 a.m. Lafferty said the combination of factors was too much to safely continue. According to the Twitter feed, Nyad was pulled from the water after swimming for 29 hours. The swim was expected to take 60 hours to cover at least 103 miles. Her goal, after leaving Havana on Sunday, was to reach the Southernmost Point in Key West today.Nyad had planned to attempt the swim last summer but apparently visa problems with Cuba aborted that plan. This time, It felt like this was my moment, a quote attributed to Nyad on her Twitter feed said. I dont feel like a failure at all. But we needed a little more luck. The Twitter account reported she decided to end the swim herself after realizing the conditions of 5 to 10 knot winds and less-thanideal currents. An online chart plotting the swims track showed the Gulf Stream currents pushing Nyad to the east of the intended course.According to the Twitter feed, Nyad was on a support boat after ending the swim and wrapped in blankets. The boat arrived at Key West early Tuesday. She planned a press brief for early Tuesday night.In her second attempt, Nyad tried to accomplish at age 61 what she failed to do at 28 in 1978. This time, she even attempted the swim without a shark cage, relying instead on an electrical field from equipment towed by kayakers to keep them at bay.Currents were pushing east of destinationAssociated PressSee Swim,3ASee Lobster,3A Photo courtesy GREG COLDIRONDrew Caterson of Marathon,out looking for lobster Saturday during the first day of the eight-month season,lands some lionfish,as well.Lionfish are invasive species that can destroy reefs and their marine life,so authorities encourage people seeing them to take them from the water.BONUS CATCH Cinque, Keating are re-electedIncumbents Mike Cinque and Richard Keating were automatically re-elected Tuesday to the Marathon City Council when no one came forward to challenge the two by the noon qualifying deadline. That means there will be no election in November which will save the city around $36,000. Both said theyre surprised no one stepped up to run and that they consider it a vote of confidence in the council and city staff. I feel humble about it, Cinque said. We made a lot of progress. You dont hear much about unincorporating the town anymore.As a whole, the council has moved forward on a lot of issues and were getting things accomplished, Keating said.Cinque will serve a third two-year term, Keating a second.

The commission later decided to expand the scope of the panel to look at the charter. island was closed in 2009 following a state inspection showing massive disrepair. The city decided not to fix it. I really would like to leave the city with that ecopark system Ive been dreaming about. It would be real nice to have a green engine in our economy, Cinque said. Cinque said the city is still in line to receive up to $1.5 million through a National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration grant to purchase the 1,100acre island. It requires a local government match. We can get the matching funds between the county land trust and the state of Florida. If we can get the owners to come to the table and deal with us..., he said. One of the owners of land on the island is suing the city, claiming that removal of the bridge devalued his property.

Rick Scott to fill out the remainder of Randy Acevedos term of Monroe County schools superintendent, has designs on the job far past when the appointment expires on Jan. 7, 2013.When that expiration arrives, the way a Keys superintendent is chosen changes, from elected to hired by the School Board. Voters approved the change in an August 2010 referendum.Scott announced Jaras appointment Monday, although www.KeysNet.com broke the news on Friday. Jara and Ed Davidson, a Marathon businessman and schools watchdog, were the only two applicants. Jara was the chief operating officer under predecessor Joseph Burke, who replaced Acevedo in the summer of 2009 and left effective July 1 to lead the Lee County School District. The School Board had named him interim superintendent while it awaited action from Scott.Jara has crafted a list of goals that includes increasing student achievement across a number of specific criteria; improving human capital by revising all job descriptions and pushing for results-oriented employees; improving public confidence in the schools system; and designing and implementing a five-year strategic plan.We cant have excuses just because we have a little issue with money, Jara said. We need everybody working collectively on the same goals. With everything that has happened in the last three years, my goal is to have the board and the district working together. This is all of us for Monroe County schools.What happened the past three years is a financial meltdown that included the theft of district money leading to an eight-year prison term for Monique Acevedo, Randys wife. Randy removed from office by then-Gov. Charlie Crist is on probation after being convicted of covering up Moniques theft of $400,000-plus while she worked for the district.Jara said he would play a part in the School Boards search for the next superintendent which he hopes will be him. Im going to put my name in the ring, he said. One of my other goals and this is what I told the governor one of the goals is to make it really hard for the board to go somewhere else. Its important to me and I think its good stability for the district.Superintendent: I want job past expiration dateBy SEAN KINNEYskinney@keynoter.comMONROE COUNTY SCHOOLSMistakes likely led to diversdeathsAseries of cascading mishaps led to the deaths of two visiting divers Saturday off Plantation Key.The bodies of Kevin Moss, 43, of Boca Raton and Judy Boone, 53, of Wellington lay close together on the deep ledge at Crocker Reef, about 60 below the surface, when they were found Sunday by the Monroe County Sheriffs Office Dive Team. Its a terrible accident that may have involved a bunch of mistakes, said agency spokeswoman Becky Herrin.Moss and Boone were among a group of five divers gathered for a reef trip organized by Mariann Radwan, 54, of Highland Beach for her birthday. Dennis Leith, a Tavernier dive captain, ran the boat, a 25-foot Bayliner named Bob as a favor to Radwan. Moss apparently ran low on air on the groups second dive, and had trouble dealing with newly purchased gear that included a dive-weight system integrated into his buoyancy compensator. Boone died while trying to render assistance. Autopsy results are pending.Moss suffered from Parkinsons disease and exhibited some symptoms but reportedly was a certified diver with hundreds of logged dives.Nine people now have died as the result of scuba or snorkel related accidents in Keys waters in 2011. According to an initial investigation by Sgt. Roy Bogue and other Sheriffs Office deputies of the Crocker Reef fatalities:The group, including Sherri Makis, 55, of Boca Raton and Alan Boyd, 52, of Boynton Beach headed out from the Pelican Cove Resort about 10 a.m. Saturday.Crocker Reef ranges in depths of about 30 feet to a deeper oceanside ledge approximately 70 feet deep. All five divers made an uneventful first dive to about 55 feet. They decided to make a second dive, and headed to Holiday Isle Resort to refill their tanks. Kevin appeared to be very relaxed during the first dive and to be having a wonderful time, Radwan told investigators, but Moss made a comment that he didnt think he was going to be able to dive again. All five did return to the water, planning to limit the dive to about 40 feet. Boyd and Makis decided to seek lobster and headed into deeper water. Moss, Boone and Radwan followed them but stayed above 50 feet. Moss then signaled Radwan that he was very low on air, and could not drop his weights to surface. Radwan shared air with Moss using her second octopus regulator mouthpiece, but she was unable to release his weights or inflate her own buoyancy compensator to bring both to the surface. Her air line to the BC had been disconnected because of an air leak. Radwan said [Moss] took her octopus out of his mouth and pushed her away, Herrin described. As she was surfacing, she saw Boone swim up to Moss and begin to try to help him. Companions described Boone as a diver of two years with limited experience. She was not equipped with a second regulator mouthpiece and tried to share her one mouthpiece to buddy breath with Moss.The other divers reached the surface and alerted Leith to the emergency below. Leith donned dive gear and went into the water to search for the pair but could not find them. Leith came back to the boat and alerted the U.S. Coast Guard. The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission also responded and helped search until dark.Using GPS coordinates, Sheriffs Office divers found them almost right away on Sunday, Herrin said.Two fatalities brings to nine number this yearUPPER KEYS JARA By KEVIN WADLOWSenior Staff Writer email@example.comNew charter high school takes shapeWhen the school year starts on Aug. 22, Key West Collegiate School, a public charter high school, will open its doors to 45 students, representing the first class at the newly established institution. Tuesday morning, Principal Debra Remsen was interviewing two prospective teachers at the school, on the Florida Keys Community College campus on Stock Island. Our vision is to keep the school small with an intense curriculum and no distractions, Remsen said. Public charters get the bulk of their funding channeled through the local school district. They differ from traditional public schools in that there is required parental involvement and less emphasis on standardized testing. Also, teachers have more liberty when designing lesson plans and pupil progression models.Other Keys charter schools under the auspices of the Monroe County School District are the Big Pine Academy, Montessori Elementary and Sigsbee Elementary in Key West, Treasure Village Montessori in Islamorada the Ocean Studies Charter School in Tavernier.Remsen projected Collegiate School operating expenses for the first year at around $300,000. The School District retains around 5 percent of the $8,000 per-student allocation that goes to charters. On July 28, the School Board approved a contract with the school. It leases office space and four classrooms, including two science labs, from the college for $2,500 each month. Remsen said that of the 45 incoming students, the majority of students are in ninth and 10th grades; Remsens daughter, a 10thgrader, is among the students.Remsen plans to hire four full-time teachers and parttime teachers as needed.Students will have the ability to choose from Advanced Placement classes, as well as any electives offered at either FKCC or Key West High School; extracurricular activities like band, choir and football are also available through Key West High. Our students will be college-bound, Remsen said. Our job is to make sure they are college-ready, not requiring remediation when they get to college. In fact, their choice of colleges and universities should expand because of the rigorous academic work they will do during their high school careers at KWCS, right here in Key West. The nonprofit that runs the school is Key West Independent Education Inc.; the board of directors comprises Chairman Elias Gerth, Michael Clarke, Helen Fill, Martha Bartley and Jackie Nicksic.Collegiate plans to open with 45 kidsBy SEAN KINNEYskinney@keynoter.comMONROE COUNTY SCHOOLS Keynoter photo by SEAN KINNEYSarah Sheean and Matthew Frankel,new math and science teachers at Key West Collegiate School,fill out employment paperwork Tuesday and get ready to welcome the schools first class of students on Aug.22.
The longtime operators of a county-funded Upper Keys animal shelter say theyll walk away rather than adhere to Monroe Countys bureaucratic new method of paying their contract. Humane Animal Care Coalition President Tom Garrettson said he understands the reason for the new process allegations of misspending by former Middle Keys shelter operator Linda Gottwald but that his shelter is different. What theyve done is they decided because of all the fraud and abuse they found in other places ... were caught up in that maze and thats not what were all about, Garrettson said. Assistant County Attorney Christine LimbertBarrows said animal-control contracts are being amended to be paid out on a reimbursement basis. They make a request for payment and have to show documentation for various services. Right now, they get paid a monthly amount and it just goes out, she said. In a letter to Beth Leto, county assistant Public Works director, Garrettson criticized the change. The new changes would refocus attention to useless administrative requirements for reimbursement; for example the current contract requires just 12 pages per year for reimbursement; the contract would require thousands of documents and man hours each year, he wrote. Garrettson also wrote that the shelter has no employees performing administrative functions, and told the Keynoter the nonprofit puts more money into the shelter each year than the county funds. That includes a longrunning free spay and neuter program his wife, Marsha, the shelter director, operates. If the county wants to get rid of us, were at peace with that. But were not at peace with signing a contract that binds us legally and the county saying, We have new ideas for the contract.Thats where we are, he said.The shelters five-year contract for $270,324 per year is set to expire in May 2012, according to Garrettson. Garrettsons refusal to agree to the new billing method has led county staff to seek approval to advertise for requests for proposals to operate the shelter. He said he plans to speak at the Aug. 17 County Commission meeting.Limbert-Barrows said Safe Harbor Animal Rescue of the Keys, which replaced Gottwalds Stand Up for Animals, and the Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals on Stock Island have agreed to the new reimbursement policy. In her first attempt in 1978, she quit after being in the water for 41 hours and 49 minutes due to strong currents and rough weather that banged her around in the shark cage. Had the latest attempt been successful, Nyad would have broken her own record of 102.5 miles for a cageless, open-sea swim, set in 1979 when she stroked from the Bahamas to South Florida. Before the swim, Nyad told journalists she hoped her swim would inspire others her age to live active lives. She said she also hoped it could help improve understanding between Cold War rivals Cuba and the United States, even if just symbolically.

According to the indictment, Greager ran his business, Holiday Seafood, using a wholesale dealers license issued by the state to the Conch Republic Seafood Co., a popular Key West bar and restaurant.They are not charged in the indictment, WattsFitzGerald said, adding, It simply recites that the wholesale dealer license is held in their name. Thats all I can say about that.If the prosecution is successful, federal agents want to confiscate 29-foot Sea Vee boat and 23-foot T-Craft owned by Maltz, who runs the Key West-based charter fishing boat Odyssea .In recent years, NOAA and the U.S. Attorneys Office have made several high-profile arrests in the Keys lobster fishery.In April, Rusty Anchor Seafood Inc., a Stock Island fish house represented by President Ramon Rodriguez, was fined $500,000 after pleading guilty to illegally receiving, purchasing and transporting lobster, as well as finfish, for resale and distribution.Back in 2009, in an investigation called Operation Freezer Burn, the feds took down David and Denise Dreifort of Cudjoe Key on lobster-poaching charges. He was sentenced to two and half years and prison and she to seven months. The couple also forfeited three vehicles and three vessels.Also arrested in that operation were Lower Keys residents Robert Hammer, Sean Reyngoudt, Michael Delph and John Niles. Hammer got two months followed by home confinement, Reyngoudt got home confinement and Delph got 10 months in jail. Niles got probation for testifying against Delph.10-year terms are possibleFrom Lobster,1A Migrant capture ends in pot bustWhen undercover federal agents swarmed a boat docking at a Key Largo marina late Friday afternoon, they expected to find illegal immigrants aboard. The lawmen got a bonus in addition to three Jamaican men taken into custody a haul of 16 bales of marijuana totaling about 400 pounds.Along with the three Jamaicans, boat operator Sean Saper, described only as a U.S. citizen in a criminal complaint filed in U.S. District Court in Miami, is charged with possessing 100 or more kilograms of marijuana with intent to distribute.The Jamaican nationals are identified as Barrington Plummer, Germaine Rattigan and Joshua Williams.Pablo Milian, a Key Largobased U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement agent in charge since 2004, filed the complaint. The arrests took place around 4 p.m. Friday at the Pilot House Marina fuel dock, on a large oceanside boat basin known locally as Lake Largo. All four suspects remained in custody at press time pending arraignment today in Key West federal court.Steve Lundy, owner of Lundys Screen Rooms of West Palm Beach and Key Largo, saw the raid unfold from up close. I had just arrived at the fuel dock at the Pilot House marina and no one was around. I went to fill my cooler with ice as the drug boat approached, he recounted in an e-mail. The boat operator only had one motor that would run and asked for my assistance docking, Lundy said. As soon as I tied his line to the dock, [Customs agents] raced up, jumped out of their SUV with their guns drawn and asked who was the operator of the drug boat Uncle Joe I pointed at the suspect and tucked behind the concrete wall and watched. Customs agents were waiting at the marina because they had information the 25foot Uncle Joe had departed from Bimini and may be involved in alien smuggling, Milian stated in the criminal complaint. As officers approached the vessel, they observed Saper at the helm and officers immediately smelled a very strong odor resembling marijuana, he wrote. After the four suspects were handcuffed and seated on the ground, agents searched the two-outboard vessel. They reported finding 13 bales stashed under cabin seats, two more in a stern hatch and one in the cuddy cabin. Each bale weighed about 25 pounds. Agents stacked [the bales] next to the ice machine at the Pilot House marina, Lundy said. After a few photos, they loaded the bales into the SUV, loaded [Saper] into one vehicle and the three Jamaicans into another vehicle for transport. Two of the CBPagents got in the boat and left the dock. No further information on Sapers residence or age was available at press time.400 pounds found on boatKEY LARGO Photo by DAVID GOODHUEA federal agent goes through the Uncle Joeafter authorities pounced Friday afternoon. Four suspects were taken into custody.By KEVIN WADLOWSenior Staff Writer firstname.lastname@example.orgMiami blue gets emergency protectionThe Miami blue butterfly, found only in the Florida Keys, becomes a federally protected endangered species today.An emergency rule published in todays Federal Register lists the Miami blue as endangered, which triggers protection for the next 240 days while the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service assesses a permanent listing.The emergency declaration means killing, harming, collecting or harassing a Miami blue is now a federal offense.In 2003, the Miami Blue butterfly was added to Floridas state list of endangered species. No animal has been added to the state list since.The [federal] emergency rule recognizes there is an imminent threat to this [Miami blue] population because there are so few of them, Fish and Wildlife spokesman Ken Warren said Tuesday.Currently the only known colony of Miami blues exists in the Marquesas islands, west of Key West. Adult Miami blues live only a few days.The Miami blue, about the size of a nickel, was believed to be extinct after Hurricane Andrew in 1992 devastated its South Florida mainland habitat. But an amateur biologist spotted a colony of them near the old Bahia Honda bridge in 1999. In 2006, observers confirmed a second colony in the Marquesas. The Bahia Honda colony apparently died out last year.Were thrilled that the Miami blue now has the Endangered Species Act protection it so desperately needs to survive and recover, said Tierra Curry, a conservation biologist at the Center for Biological Diversity. That organization was poised to sue the federal government for its inaction on the Miami blue.The North American Butterfly Association first sought protection in 1999. This is a welcome development but it comes late in the game. We hope its not too late, said Dennis Olle, a Miami attorney and NABA board member. Its taken 11 years and the collapse of one of only two known colonies in the wild. Fish and Wildlife officials note, The Miami blue butterfly is endangered due to the combined influences of habitat destruction and modification, [devouring] of host plants by exotic green iguanas, accidental harm from humans, loss of genetic diversity, and catastrophic environmental events such as hurricanes. Acomment period starts today and runs through Oct. 11 on whether the Miami blue should receive permanent endangered-species status, followed by a Fish and Wildlife Service review.

EDITORIALEducation funding no game of chanceLETTERS TO THE EDITORHealth clinic essentialIm writing to commend the Good Health Clinic for its excellence in caring for patients like myself with a low-income budget. I cant express how grateful I am to the staff for everything theyve done for me the past three years, including Dr. Sandy Yankow, Norma and the new assistant, Kim. It takes special individuals to have to deal with patients day in and day out who are all barely hanging on by the thread of their pants. In 2008, I noticed some lumps behind my ears and in my groin area, so the Good Health Clinic sent me in for some blood work and a CTscan. They then sent me up to Baptist Health Miami to have oncologist Siddhartha Venkatappa read my test. To my surprise, I was diagnosed with follicular lymphoma. Its a nonHodgkins type of cancer that begins in the lymphatic system. I had to get a PETscan, more bloodwork and a bone marrow test. Each time I had to go see the oncologist, I was required to have my blood tested. Eventually, they decided it was time for some treatment. I went in once a week for a month for immunotherapy. The drug they gave me was called Rituxan. While I sat in the chair for two hours at a time with others getting their chemotherapy treatments, I would always count my blessings. That couldve been me in those chairs. At first, I went once a month, then every three, and every six. Now I have to have an annual screening for preventative measures. Mind you, prior to each appointment, I had to first have my blood drawn, then get another CTscan. Can you just imagine how much all these tests/doctor appointments would have cost me if I had to pay out of pocket? More importantly, I most likely would not have even had the lumps checked out in the first place. At 29 years old, I never expected to get cancer, and with my financial situation as a working mother, I would not have made going to the doctor a priority. If this cancer had spread, what were the consequences? I feel forever indebted to the Good Health Clinic for all the medical treatments Ive received. Theyve provided me with the best medical care and never once did I ever feel singled out for being poor. I would like to encourage everyone who has the means to continue donating money to the Good Health Clinic. Its funding has been cut back and its in danger of having to close the clinic down. Im uncertain how many patients they have here in the Keys, but this is the only clinic of its kind. Please help the Good Health Clinic stay open, not just for me, but for the many other patients who may have stories similar to mine. Angela Cody IslamoradaPosition misstatedPertaining to the Aug. 6 Keynoter article Gottwald rejects settlement, please note that I am not nor have I ever been a board member of Safe Harbor Animal Rescue of the Keys. Together with Cora Baggs, the two of us were on the steering committee that helped form the initial 501(c)3 nonprofit that eventually became SHARK. For the record, my business partner, Dr. Geraldine Diethelm, is an ex-officio member of SHARK, as is Dr. Mike Dunn. None of the veterinarians that work with SHARK have any voting power or fiscal influence and have nothing to do with the organizations finances. Douglas Mader Marathon Veterinary HospitalVolunteers make it happenI would like to thank volunteer Sandy Brooks and her friends who helped us in so many ways, not just in wildlife care but also in building cages, maintaining our center and helping with equipment donations as well as Sandys personal donation of $700. It gives us great pleasure to acknowledge these extraordinary people. Sandy Brooks is a retired U.S. Navy captain who served in Operation Desert Storm. In our hectic world of wildlife rescue and rehabilitation, we spend so much time focused on our wild patients that we sometimes lose sight of the dedicated humans and supportive communities that are the very heart of our organization. It takes extraordinary people to spend day in and day out working in this stressful world. There is no glamour, fame or fortune the return is often just a glimpse of the hind end of a healthy bird or animal released back into the wild. After 10 years of telling the continuing saga, words have become inadequate. What I believe tells our story best are the faces the faces of people who, over the years, have given tirelessly to our beleaguered wild animals and who have had their lives forever changed by the challenge of caring for disabled wildlife, the familiar association developed with wildlife, and the many lessons learned. We could not have done it without them. Maya Totman, director Florida Keys Wildlife Rescue Big Pine KeyMini-seasons a blastEvery year the Florida commercial lobster season ends on March 31 and reopens Aug. 6 for traps and harvesting. This little break gives the lobster population a chance to spawn, tend to their eggs and create the next generation of tasty crustaceans. It also is a time for lobster movement, often from deeper waters to the shallower reef systems inshore, where food is plentiful and the habitat offers a lot of great hiding places. The last Wednesday and Thursday of July every year are reserved for recreational divers and boaters to get first dibs on all the spiny lobster that have been spawning all spring and summer before the commercial fishermen set their traps. For the past seven years, customers of Indian Valley Scuba have traveled from Harleysville, Pa., to Key Largo to take part in lobster mini-season. The size of the group has grown steadily over the years, starting with just a few people in 2005 to a full boat of 24 divers the past few years. The group combines the two days of mini-season with the groups usual weekend of reef and wreck dives with the Amoray Dive Resort in Key Largo, and also adds a two-day Florida Keys Wreck Trek from Key West to Key Largo option at the beginning of the week to round out a complete week of summertime diving. Catching lobster on the shallow reefs off Key Largo was a bit challenging due to bumpy conditions; smaller recreational vessels stayed inland to avoid the rougher seas of the outer reef, which meant more lobster to catch for the courageous crew. By Thursday evening, Team IVS captured 172 legal-sized lobsters in two days of mini-season, shattering the groups 2010 record of 107 lobsters and providing the bounty for a fantastic annual feast at the Key Largo Conch House. For the annual Indian Valley lobster feast, the staff of the Conch House graciously takes in hundreds of lobster gathered by the crew and cooks up tasteful dishes of lobster cerviche, lobster fritters and, of course, broiled lobster tail with drawn butter. For the 2011 lobster feast, the Conch House served up more than 150 lobsters, with no leftovers to spare. Forty-five hungry people attended. The warmest appreciation and thanks go out to the owners of the Amoray Dive Resort, the boat crew of the Amoray Diver and the professional staff of the Conch House for once again putting together a wonderful annual lobster feast. David W. Hartman Key LargoState needs a more reliable source than the lottery to maintain levels crucial to our futureHave you seen the Florida Lotterys latest TVcommercials? The ones with a befuddled banker from Monopoly surprised by the ringing bell marking all the lottery winners. The cartoon character is a throwback to a simpler time when color comics were a big draw for newspapers and kids actually played a board game called Monopoly. My, how times have changed. Thats apparently why Gov. Rick Scott has hired a branding expert to take over the states flagging lottery, which plays an important role in funding Florida education programs. The St. Petersburg Times reports that lottery scratch-off and lucky-number chances are not driving sales volumes needed. Ticket sales, the newspaper reports, have fallen 4 percent since 2007-08. That was before the economic squeeze really began to pinch household incomes and Floridas unemployment numbers began to climb faster than lottery ticket sales began to fall. Its easy to see a direct connection there. Cynthia OConnell, who heads the state lottery, points to an aging player base as part of the problem and plans to push the states laggard gambling efforts into more social media and cell-phone apps. Its fair to say that were behind the times on social media, but that will be changed, David Bishop, deputy secretary for brand management, told the Times Well be on Twitter, well be on Facebook, well be on emerging social platforms that allow us to not only reach our customers but our future customers. Lottery officials are quick to note that ticket sales have contributed $22 billion to public education since the inception of legalized state gambling. What theyre not as quick to admit, however, is that the Legislature engages in a bait and switch in which state revenue once pledged for education has been replaced by lottery earnings which we see are not immune to economic downturns. One of the states flagship education programs, Bright Futures Scholarships, has already lost funding because of lagging lottery earnings over the past two years and will face further cutbacks in the coming year. Established in 1997, Bright Futures was designed as a way to stem the so-called brain drain, as Floridas brightest students went elsewhere for college degrees and many never returned. Reduced funding means Bright Futures covers less tuition at state schools, which have separately been given the green light by lawmakers to increase tuition costs by 15 percent. Please tell us the answer to plugging Florida education funding gaps is something better than swapping out Mr. Monopoly for a phone app? We cant expect recruiting younger gamblers to be this states Bright Future, can we?

Boat runs over fatherand sonAn 11-year-old boy was in critical condition at press time Tuesday afternoon after he and his father were run over by the dive boat they chartered from Plantation Key.They were drift-diving north of Conch Reef when the accident happened, said Officer Robert Dube, spokesman with the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission. Drift divers jump off their boat and float along with the current. The dive boat typically follows them and picks them up when they resurface.The son was immediately airlifted to Miami Childrens Hospital. The father, who just turned 38, was originally taken to Mariners Hospital in Tavernier, but his condition was worse than originally thought and he was flown to Baptist Hospital in Miami. Both were wounded by the boats propeller, Dube said.Dube said at press time that it was unclear how the father and son from Harrington, Del., were run over. The accident happened around 9 a.m.The accident is considered a boating accident and not a scuba accident, Monroe County Sheriffs Office spokeswoman Deputy Becky Herrin said. The victims werent identified Tuesday. The dive boat was from Florida Keys Dive Center on Plantation Key.Delaware pair drift diving at Conch ReefBy DAVID GOODHUEdgoodhue@keysreporter.comUPPER KEYSReward grows in turtle spearing caseWhoever speared an endangered loggerhead sea turtle last week violating the federal Endangered Species Act might be sweating a little more now that the reward fund for information leading to his or her arrest has grown into five digits.Nicholas Borg and his father were fishing between Little Palm Island and Looe Key on Aug. 3 when they saw the turtle struggling to come up for air with a 4-foot spear stuck in its head. They contacted the U.S. Coast Guard and were given permission to boat the turtle. They did, and Marathon Turtle Hospital staffers Jo Ellen Basile and Bob Smargiassi met them at their Big Pine Key dock to pick it up.The turtle is dubbed Sara for Nicholas Borgs daughter. After the spear was removed and Sara was stabilized by Dr. Doug Mader, the Turtle Hospitals veterinarian, the animal is on the mend and could be released back into the ocean fairly quickly.Meanwhile, the reward fund grows:Turtle Hospital founder Richie Moretti and hospital engineer Tom Luebke each pledged $4,000.Pledging $500 each are the Florida Keys Commercial Fishermens Association and the Organized Fishermen of Floridas Marathon chapter, Jason Martinez of Sugarloaf Key, Cee Dee Air Conditioning of Jupiter, and Brad Brooks and Jessica Mootz of Ponta Vedra Beach.Stacy Shippe and Pat McCarthy of the Outta the Blue Marina in Marathon added $250. That all adds up to $10,250. Additionally, Matt Bellinger of Bamboo Charters in Islamorada pledged three full-day fishing trips and Captain Slates Atlantis Dive Center in Key Largo three free dives. If you have information that can lead to whoever speared the turtle, call the Turtle Hospital at 743-2552 or the state Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission at 289-2320.KEYS WILDLIFEKeynoter Staff Turtle Hospital staffers Marie Simpson,Richie Moretti and Tom Luebke,and Dr. Doug Mader, remove the spear.

Naples-based EvCor Inc. has talked to the city about the partially completed, bank-owned property, Marathon officials say. EvCor is reportedly in the midst of due diligence on the 13-acre parcel. However, the companys principal, Mike Lehn, declined comment on any possible deal this week, as did a representative of the propertys real estate broker, Coral Gables-based Continental Real Estate Cos. Marlin Bay has been listed for sale for about a year by CREC, which is handling the sale of or serving as court-appointed receiver for more than 50 commercial or multi-family properties, mostly in South Florida. The city of Marathon has an approved development agreement for the property, so anyone who buys it will need to work with the city as they move forward, Planning Director George Garrett told the Keynoter Garrett said the property appears to be in good shape, despite sitting vacant for three years. When it was first announced, Marlin Bay was touted as a $220 million luxury waterfront community with homes priced from $1.6 million to $4 million. Marlin Bay was built on the former site of the Gulfstream Trailer Park, whose residents were evicted in 2004. Developer L.M. Sandler & Sons Inc. planned to build 92 homes and a 99-slip marina in several phases on the property. It completed 13 luxury homes, eight affordable-housing units, 65 slips, a dockmasters office and a clubhouse with pool before work abruptly ceased in May 2008. Not all of the finished units had received certificates of occupancy. Sandler blamed the projects abrupt end on a banks failure to complete a large loan. As the real estate market tanked, Marlin Bay was one of several Sandler projects left incomplete. Dozens of liens for unpaid work were filed after work on the luxury development stopped in 2008. The status of those liens was unavailable at press time; CRECs sales information indicated the sale would be free and clear of all encumbrances. CREC hasnt advertised a listing price on the nearly 14-acre waterfront site on Louisa Street, instead saying it would be determined by market.

Gaffer-size dolphin are being caught on weed lines 15 to 25 miles off Marathon, with some fiveto 10-pound blackfin tuna mixed in. Find a floater and you may be rewarded with onestopshopping for your limit of dolphin and perhaps a small wahoo. However, if you fish in 40 feet of water on the reef, youll be dining on yellowtail snapper. There are mangrove snapper on the shallower reef edge as well as the patch reefs. Cero mackerel are also making a nice showing on the reef. They make delicious ceviche. Net up or hair hook the ballyhoo in your chum slick as youre yellowtailing and youll be all set. The wrecks are offering up amberjack, jack crevalle, the occasional mutton snapper and the very occasional grouper, plus scattered small to midsize kingfish. And in Florida Bay, its a lobster-palooza. Recreational lobster hunting has been quite productive, with some hefty bugs coming back to the dock. Weve heard of many reports of lobster up to three pounds or so. But exercise caution, as there is a large amount of commercial lobster gear in the water. Stay down wind and down tide of the buoys to prevent getting tangled up in the lines that may be trailing on the surface. If the breeze is blowing a bit, or if youd just like a quick fix, head to Florida Bay for mangrove snapper fishing. There are lots of 12to 15-inch mangroves there for the taking. But dont be fooled. Mangrove snappers are incredibly hard-fighting fish for their size, but well worth the effort to get them to your dinner plate. Shallow-water fishing for sharks in the bay and Gulf areas continues to provide exciting outings. Catch-and-release shark fishing presents the opportunity to experience the exhilaration of big game sport fishing closer to shore and easier on your budget.The weeks bestCaptains Howard Kelley and Zach Willis, fishing on the Papa Pips out of Captain Pips Marina and Hideaway in Marathon, continue their good stretch of dolphin fishing with groups and families from all around Florida, as well as Texas. Anglers came back to the dock with loads of good size dolphin, tripletail and wahoo. On the return from one trip, the crew rescued an injured 125-pound loggerhead turtle, which went on to the Turtle Hospital for rehab. Neil Apley guided a pair from Bradenton on one of the Captain Pips rental boats to a great day of offshore fishing highlighted by a 28-pound bull dolphin. The SeaSquared shared a large group charter with Captain Pips. Twelve anglers from the Orlando area enjoyed a day of catch-and-release shark fishing followed by mangrove snapper fishing. We also hosted families from Connecticut, Georgia, Florida, New York and Canada. We fished the reef for mangrove and yellowtail snapper and Florida Bay for sharks. Capt. Jeff Shelar, of Catch-Em-All Charters out of Captain Pips Marina, has been fishing the patch reefs for mangroves and a few keeper grouper. In the Gulf, his anglers have caught permit, cobia and lots of sharks, mostly blacknose. Shelars catch of the week goes to Jordan Anderson, from Texas, who caught a 47-pound amberjack in 200 feet of water.Casting for CharityAnd remember, Capt. Spiders Casting for Charity takes place Thursday at the 7 Mile Marina/Saltys Waterfront Grill at mile marker 47.5 bayside in Marathon.

Chris Johnson CaptainsColumn Limit players exposure to heatIn the wake of recent student athlete deaths due to excessive heat including one in South Florida the American Red Cross of Miami and the Keys recommends team officials, coaches and parents take steps to help ensure the safety of their players during extreme heat. Keeping athletes safe is crucial, said Linda Olson, director of health and safety services for the Red Cross in South Florida. Make sure athletes stay hydrated. Have everyone drink plenty of fluids like water or sports drinks with electrolytes before, during and after activities. Avoid drinks with caffeine or alcohol. Isaiah Laurencin, a senior offensive lineman from Miramar High School, died early July 27 morning at Joe DiMaggio Childrens Hospital in Hollywood. According to Broward County School District spokeswoman Nadine Drew, Laurencin collapsed during a conditioning drill on the football field at Miramar High after 5 p.m. the day before his death. The death of the 6-foot-3, 286pound guard is believed to be heat-related. During the hot weather, team practices should be scheduled for early in the day and later in the evening to avoid exposing players to the hottest times of the day. Other steps teams, schools and parents should take to protect their athletes include:Allow athletes to get acclimated to the heat by reducing the intensity of practice until they are more accustomed to it.Make frequent, longer breaks a regular part of practice. About every 20 minutes stop for fluids and try to keep the athletes in the shade if possible.Reduce the amount of heavy equipment, like football pads, athletes wear in extremely hot, humid weather.Dress athletes, when appropriate, in net-type jerseys or light-weight, light-colored, cotton T-shirts and shorts.Know the signs of heatrelated emergencies and monitor athletes closely. Knowing the signs of heatrelated emergencies and how to help someone who is suffering from the heat is vital, Olson said. Coaches and parents need to be vigilant in watching for signs of heat-related emergencies. Athletes should inform their coaches, teachers or parents if they are not feeling well. Heat cramps are muscular pains and spasms that usually occur in the legs or abdomen caused by exposure to high heat and humidity and loss of fluids and electrolytes. Heat cramps are often an early sign that the body is having trouble with the heat. If someone is experiencing heat cramps:Get the person to a cooler place and have him or her rest in a comfortable position. Stretching, massaging and icing the affected muscle may help.Give a half glass of cool water or a sports drink with electrolytes every 15 minutes. Do not give liquids with alcohol or caffeine in them, as they can make conditions worse. Heat exhaustion is caused by a combination of exercise induced heat and fluid and electrolyte loss from sweating. Signs of heat exhaustion include cool, moist, pale or flushed skin; heavy sweating; headache; nausea; dizziness; weakness; and exhaustion. To help someone with these symptoms:Move the person to a cooler place. Remove or loosen tight clothing. Spray him or her with water or apply cool, wet cloths or towels to the skin. Fan the person. If the person is conscious, give small amounts of cool water cool water or a sports drink with electrolytes to drink. Make sure the person drinks slowly. Watch for changes in his or her condition.If the person refuses water, vomits or begins to lose consciousness, call 911.South Florida football player dies of exposureATHLETESSAFETY Stuff the Bus Big retailers Keyswide join the United Way and School District to help kids get school supplies.Story, 3B Lobster for everyone Recreational and commercial lobster season started Saturday,and a festival celebrates the tasty crustaceans.Story, 2B

KEYSNET.COM Touchscreen BlackBerrys about to be launchedResearch In Motion Ltd. has unveiled five new BlackBerry phones with touchscreens, as it hopes to revive the lines dwindling appeal in the face of competition from the iPhone and Android smartphones. The new phones had been expected earlier this year, but were delayed. Though the company is profitable and seeing growing sales, its increasingly seen as a hasbeen that missed the chance to parlay the BlackBerrys popularity as a corporate email device into mass-market dominance. RIM, which is based in Waterloo, Ontario, is updating its high-end Bold models to include touchscreens. Its also launching two Torch models with big screens but no physical keyboards, mimicking the basic design of the iPhone. RIM launched a keyboard-less touchscreen phone in 2008, more than a year after the first iPhone, but the Storms quirky design and poor software made it a flop. The all-touchscreen Torch has been a while coming as a natural successor to the disappointing Storm, particularly when the smartphone market has gone touchscreen mad over the past 18 months, said Malik Saadi, an analyst at Informa. The phones run a new version of the BlackBerry operating system, which RIM says is much faster, particularly for Web browsing. AT&TInc. said it would launch a Torch model with a physical keyboard this month, and the all-touch Torch and a Bold model later this year. It didnt announce prices. The Bold models will be the first BlackBerrys to include so-called Near-Field Communications chips, so they can be used in place of credit cards by swiping them across properly equipped payment terminals. Many companies, including cellphone carriers like AT&T and Web companies like Google Inc. are promoting the idea of using phones as digital wallets.The company is trying to play catch-upAssociated PressTECHNOLOGY Photo courtesy McCLATCHY TRIBUNEThe BlackBerry used to be state of the art.Now,its fallen behind iPhones and other so-called smart devices.LIVING BRIEFSFlagler poster contest ongoingThe Marathon Community Theatre is sponsoring a poster contest to mark the 100-year anniversary of the Jan. 12, 1912, arrival in Key West of the Florida East Coast Railway.

MonroeCountysperformance andobligationtopayunderthis Stuff the bus starting FridayThe United Way of the Florida Keys is partnering with the Monroe County School District and various Keys retailers on whats called the Stuff-the-Bus campaign this Friday through Sunday. Stuff the Bus challenges residents to donate new classroom supplies for local students; schools in Monroe County open Aug. 22. Participating retailers are Publix, Winn-Dixie, Office Depot, Office Max and Kmart stores. All will have donation boxes set up for the three-day school-supplies sales-tax holiday, which begins Friday and ends Sunday. Collection hours are 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. The School District is providing three school buses to serve as collection depots for each area of the Keys. The buses will be parked outside the stores on a rotating basis so shoppers will see the banner announcing the Stuff-theBus collection drive. Margie Smith, president of the United Way of the Florida Keys, said the goal is to get more than just pens, pencils and paper. Weve got the wish list from every school and some are focused on creating a bank of uniforms for families in need, Smith said. Other schools need backpacks for families who need help with back-to-school purchases. These are supplies that the principals and teachers have said are most needed for the start of school, Smith said. Volunteers from school advisory councils will join with school leaders and volunteers from the United Way, BB&TBank, IberiaBank and First State Bank to staff donation sites. There will be live radio broadcasts by Clear Channel Radio and Keys Radio Group as well as food available over the three days, all from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Friday, the broadcast and food are at the Key West Winn-Dixie in Overseas Market; Saturday, all three Publix stores in the Keys host the broadcasts and provide food.

And all of that restful sleep. Except when you cant get to sleep. Or you crash, but you cant stay asleep. Summer is really fraught with sleep hazards, psychologist and author Michael Breus says. Right about now, some people are realizing that the season isnt the reprieve they envisioned, and few things are more frustrating than summer sleep problems. Humans tend to sleep best when the ambient temperature is 65 to 75 degrees. And as we know, we havent been even close to that in months. Hot nights arent alone in disrupting sleep. And you are far from alone if the summer months bring more tossing and turning than rejuvenation. Breus, who goes by the nickname the Sleep Doctor (www.thesleepdoctor.com), says the numbers go up in his sleep lab during the summer. Knowing the causes of summer sleep problems can help point to corrections, sleep experts say. Almost any change of the environment has some degree of effect on sleep quality, says Damien Stevens, a physician who specializes in sleep medicine at the University of Kansas Hospital. And you can be a victim of disrupted sleep the bane of high-quality sleep without even knowing it, Stevens says. Unless youre awake for several minutes, you wont recall the disruption. Much shorter wakeful periods can occur three seconds each, say but those are enough to reduce sleep quality. So what are the worst troublemakers? First, the heat. People fall asleep as their body temperature falls, and they wake up in the morning when body temperature rises. But all during the night, as the body goes into rapid eye movement sleep, it periodically loses the ability to sweat and shiver, says Ann M. Romaker, medical director of St. Lukes Health Systems Sleep Disorders Centers. Body temperature starts to match the surrounding air temperature. The result can be numerous waking episodes. Theres evidence that people native to very hot climates perhaps the Keys are acclimated to sleeping in higher temperatures, Stevens says. The rest arent that lucky. So, a tough fix? Definitely. If your air conditioner is struggling, adding a fan can help. Breus, whose books are Good Night and The Sleep Doctors Diet Plan, says to pay attention to the microclimate in the bed. Even weighty sheets can increase temperature. Some people seek assistance with specialty products such as the Chillow, which is made from thermoregulating material that stays cool and is placed on top of the pillow. Besides temperature issues, a host of lifestyle factors contribute to summer sleeplessness. In general, exercise and increased activity improve sleep quality, but their summer timing can be a sleep killer. Summertime means crowded bar patios late at night and evening runs for ice cream and fourth meals, even during the week. Experts say the effects of food and alcohol on sleep are often misunderstood. Alcohol acts as a sedative at first, helping people fall asleep. But later during the night, the effect is reversed, causing episodes of wakefulness and low-quality sleep. Romaker recommends no alcohol in the two hours before going to bed.Here is some advice to catch some more ZZZsMcClatchy-TribuneTO YOUR HEALTH TOTALNUDITY...

TUMBLE IN THE GRASSPhoto by ALI ADAMSHarlie Daniels is head over heels in love with the newly sodded soccer fields in the Marathon Community Park. She was caught here turning flips while taking a break from watching her brothers Clay and Drake play in the citys summer soccer league.LIVING BRIEFSForks Over Knives screens in MarathonThe film Forks Over Knives is coming to Marathon for a one-time viewing on Aug. 25 at the Marathon Community Theatre, mile marker 49.5. Cocktails (cash bar) and light hors doeuvres are served from 5:30 to 6 p.m. and the movie screens from 6 to 7:30. Adiscussion will follow. According to Forks Over Knives Web site, the movie examines the profound claim that most, if not all, of the degenerative diseases that afflict us can be controlled, or even reversed, by rejecting our present menu of animal-based and processed foods. Hosting the viewing is Aristo Events LLC, a Marathon event producer run by Charles and Hilary Badoian of Boot Key Harbor. The writer and director of Forks Over Knives is documentarian Lee Fulkerson.
