On the Utility Board of Key West, which oversees and sets policy for Keys Energy Services, incumbent Charles Bradford won his race over Tony Estenoz, earning another four-year term representing Group 1. But in an upset, business owner Barry Barroso ousted incumbent Ty Symroski for the Group 5 seat on the Utility Board. "We worked as hard as we could to not take any chances," Cates said moments after learning of his victory. "I stayed on my platform. It shows the community is behind me." His platform included siting a new city hall at Glynn Archer Elementary School and more community outreach for the homeless. Cates, former owner of a NAPA Auto Parts store, won with 2,779 votes (70.2 percent), besting challengers Margaret Romero, retired from IBM, who got 1,087 (27.5 percent); and Carie Noda, who owns a disaster services firm, who got 92 (2.3 percent). In District 4, Commissioner Barry Gibson declined to seek a second term, instead filing to run in 2012 for Monroe County elections supervisor. Succeeding Gibson, political newcomer Yaniz received 718 votes (69.6 percent), topping former City Manager Julio Avael, who received 313 votes (30.4 percent). "What we wanted to accomplish was a true grassroots movement," Yaniz said. "I think the results at 69 percent points out that people want a fresh approach. I am so humbled and so excited. The people rallied." Avael served as city manager for more than a decade, retiring in 2007. Yaniz is director of sales and marketing at the Coconut Beach Resort. For the Utility Board, Bradford, a career banker who works in financial services, kept his seat, garnering 2,333 votes (60.9 percent), besting challenger Estenoz, a gas station owner, who got 1,499 (39.12 percent). Bradford said his record cemented his win and expressed surprise the vote was so close. "People didn't pay as much attention as I thought they would." Barroso, a former member of the Key West Planning Board, won with 2,093 votes (53.49 percent) besting incumbent Symroski, a former Monroe County and city planner, who received 1,820 (46.51 percent). "It's very hard to upset an incumbent," Barroso said. "We had a clean campaign. We ran on the issues. I wanted to win or lose on my merits. It was a hard race." Mark Rossi and Teri Johnston, representing Districts 2 and 5 respectively, were automatically re-elected unopposed to the City Commission when candidate qualifying ended on Aug. 19. Commissioners earn $8,500 each year and the mayor gets $10,000, although those salaries will incrementally increase over the next four years, moving up to $20,000 and $22,500 respectively. Cates and Yaniz will be sworn in at noon Aug. 11 at Old City Hall on Greene Street. Utility Board members earn a little more than $12,000 annually. Voter turnout was 27.2 percent for the citywide mayoral and Utility Board races, while it was 38.9 percent in the District 4 race.For Utility Board, incumbent Symroski loses, Bradford winsKEY WEST ELECTION 2011By SEAN KINNEYskinney@keynoter.com CATES YANIZ BRADFORD ESTENOZKeys teams find field uneven when it comes to travelingAlready pressed by the economy, Florida Keys prep sports programs have faced even higher travel costs this fall. Cutbacks on the number of school buses and drivers available to make out-ofcounty trips to away games have forced athletic directors to switch to more expensive private transport. "We could be looking at an $80,000 travel budget for all our teams this year," Coral Shores Athletic Director Rich Russell said. "That's up from about $50,000 last year. It's kind of scary." For two long trips to Naples for football games, chartering a private bus out of Miami cost the Hurricane program about $1,100 per trip, Russell said. Most transportation costs for high-school team travel come from privately raised funds. "People tend to assume these kinds of things are taken care of but they're not," Russell said. "Any answers are going to have to come from the private sector." In previous years, teams usually would contract with the Monroe County School District for use of a bus and driver, at about $400 to $600 per trip for the typical away game. When a rash of illnesses and leaves depleted the staff of school bus drivers over several recent weeks, Marathon High School had to reach out to private companies, MHS Athletic Director Teresa Konrath said. "The district had no drivers to give us," she said. "We had to do what we can." From Marathon, a football trip to play a mainland opponent went from about $500 to nearly $1,500, she said. "When the crunch hit, we were fortunate that most of our games were scheduled here in town," Konrath said. Smaller teams can rent less expensive cars or vans, she said, and some Miami teams have been willing to switch their games to the Middle Keys. "That means we may have to go up there to some schools twice next year," she said. Russell said when Coral Shores mapped out its football schedule for the fall season early this year, school budgets had not been extensively trimmed. "As an educator, I under-District cuts mean costs have increased dramaticallyHIGH SCHOOL SPORTS Photo by BERT BUDDEKey West High School swimmers cheer on their teammates during a Friday meet at the Florida Keys Community College pool (story,2B).Keys teams are paying more to travel to away games and meets because of district cuts.By KEVIN WADLOWSenior Staff Writer kwadlow@keynoter.comParents reach out for helpBudget cuts and related staff reductions at the Monroe County School District are leading Marathon High School to consider the old "it takes a village" philosophy to education. The school's Advisory Committee is turning to parents and the community at large to help fill educational voids left by the district's widespread downsizing, though what those specific voids are, no one could say. But committee Chairman Luis Gonzalez said the idea was broached at the group's last meeting. "It was discussed that with all the shortfalls financially, MHS has an opendoor policy with its parents and community members. [Principal Hammond Gracy] clearly stressed he invites parents and community members to come in and volunteer. They're welcome and they're needed," Gonzalez said. The School District has a 2011-12 operating budget that contemplates expenses at $80,052,314; that's $9.3 million less than the spending plan from the previous year. Since the 2007-08 school year, a four-year period, the number of instructional staffers has gone from 725 to 640, an 11.7 percent decrease. At Marathon, at least three teachers are gone from last year, Gracy said. Gonzalez said the Advisory Committee is "actively recruiting people right now."

"But we have our fixed costs, like equipment and officials, but we didn't foresee the extent of the transportation changes," he said. "What used to be a $400 trip is now a $675 trip." "We haven't had to cut anything from the schedule yet," Russell said. "We've figured out a way to get there. But we don't see any real improvements on the horizon." The School District "is doing as much as they can, and the Mid Keys Booster Club really stepped up for us," Konrath said. "The main concern that transportation costs may deplete our sports budget for everything else, like uniforms," she said. Key West High School, possibly the Florida school with the most persistent transportation issues, has encountered new problems. Anew football district with just two teams in addition to the Conchs left Key West with a shortened ninegame schedule. Few teams are willing to travel all the way through the Keys unless the game counts in district standings. Hialeah Gardens, scheduled to host Key West last Friday, dropped its football program the day before the game. That leaves the Conchs with an eight-game regular season schedule.Costs way upFrom Sports,1ABoard might restrict audit panel's voiceThe Monroe County School Board is expected to consider Tuesday how its five-person Audit and Finance Committee can communicate internally, and with School District employees, the public and the press. The Audit Committee "is not in general consensus" over a proposed communication policy, district Chief Internal Auditor Ken Gentile said Tuesday. "This is a crossroads," Gentile said, referencing a Tuesday board workshop set to start at 3 p.m. in district headquarters on Trumbo Point in Key West. "It's kind of one of those conversations that has to take place in any organization," he continued. "What I tried to do is bring the discussion hopefully not to esoteric level, but as a framework for the future. How do you frame language that stands the test of time?" The draft communications policy reads, in part: "Communication of information whether oral, written or electronic between members, with the district, and with the public must be in accordance with School Board policy, Florida statute and in the best interests of the School District." "What're the best interests of the School District?'" School Board Chairman John Dick wondered. "I'm sure I have a very different opinion of what's in the best interest of the School District compared to some of the other board members over the years." "That phrase is one of the reasons why this hasn't come to the board sooner," Gentile said. "Who determines what's in the best interest of the district? It's the difference between having a compass and going in the right direction and having a roadmap and saying where you are at a point in time. "When you look at an issue, you have to say where are we in that evolutionary cycle, what's in the plan, and what's in the best interest of the district to get there." Gentile is a contract employee of the School Board, and board members appoint members of the Audit Committee. Asked why he, as a board employee, focused on "the best interests of the School District," Gentile defined that as comprising the board and administration. "Maybe that section should read in the best interests of the School Board," Gentile considered, noting that this was the precise type of question he'd like direction from the board members to address. "I'll fight it," Dick said. "If they're trying to stifle information, I'll speak my peace."

Gracy says a main focus of the push to include parents and community members will be to recruit volunteers to tutor children in the Advancement Via Individual Determination, or AVID, program. He said state funding for it through The Florida Partnership has dried up, leaving the school in need of tutors. AVID is a national college readiness program that 47 states, Washington D.C., and numerous countries participate in. Marathon High has an AVID class for grades six through 11 and is in its third year. Students apply and must have at least a 2.0 grade point average. The program was also introduced at Key West High, Horace O' Bryant Middle and Sugarloaf schools in the Keys. "It's not remedial in any nature. It's helping kids get skills and do organizational activities to get them into college," Gracy said. "From day one, your purpose in AVID is to get into college." On a larger scale, Gracy said he wants parents and the community to help create an academic booster club, much like the athletic one that's active in the Middle Keys. "We do a lot of celebrating athletics and that's important for kids, but what's going to last after high school is what they do academically," he said. "We can find different things where they can support us, but we just need to build a community awareness." Gracy emphasized the school has fewer instructors than in recent years and is "working with a much tighter budget." "We're just all being asked to do more with less," he said. For more information on tutoring or volunteering time, contact Marathon High School at 289-2480.Help wantedFrom Schools,1A Village: Sewers might not be doneIslamorada councilmen say they might tell state officials that the village won't comply with a requirement to build sewers to keep sewage out of coastal waters if it's going to cost too much. Four engineering firms are preparing bids to design, build and finance a sewer system for the four-island town. If the bids are too high, Mayor Michael Reckwerdt said, the village should insist on federal and state money to help pay for it, or tell the state the project can't get done. "Then Islamorada may very well say, OK,'and stop," Reckwerdt said at the Sept. 22 Village Council meeting. The state requirement to replace septic systems and cesspits with advanced wastewater treatment is enforced by the Department of Community Affairs. The state says the entire Keys must be connected to centralized wastewater systems by December 2015 to stop sewage from drain fields and cesspits from polluting surrounding waters. If sewers aren't complete, the state can put liens on property and hold back building permits, among other things. Reckwerdt was responding to criticism by fellow Councilman David Purdo, who was concerned over the amount the village is paying wastewater engineering consultant Wade Trim to prepare bid specifications and perform other sewerrelated services. Councilmen unanimously approved two new Wade Trim jobs at the meeting. Reckwerdt said the village Finance Department is going to provide the total amount the village has spent. Tom Brzezinski of Wade Trim told council members that his company may have received more than $1 million over the last couple of years from Islamorada. Purdo called that a "ridiculous amount" of money because Wade Trim's job is essentially to hire another engineering firm to build and operate the sewer system, he said. But Reckwerdt said the village is right to spend the money on bid specifications because the bidders will be able to provide real figures the village can present to the state to show "this is what our burden is." "We need to spend the money to get an answer to decide whether we're going to move forward or not," he said. Reckwerdt declined to say how much is too much for the village to spend to meet the state's clean-water mandate. He said he did not want to be specific about what is too expensive because it might discourage bidding. The estimated cost of sewers and treatment plants for Islamorada has been as much as $150 million. Reckwerdt said that is too much to expect Islamorada residents to pay without federal and state aid. For now, Reckwerdt said he is focusing on "plan A," which is waiting on the firms to come back with their plans and estimates. "Part of plan B is having the ability to say stop," he said.Council awaits firmer numbers from consultantBy DAVID GOODHUEdgoodhue@keysreporter.comISLAMORADA

Wednesday,October 5,2011 3A Keynoter KeysNet.com Keys animals, flora considered for protectionThe Florida Keys mole skink and the Lower Keys striped mud turtle may join the Key deer and Key Largo woodrat on the list of local wildlife species meriting federal protection. Those reptiles and a handful of other animals and plants unique to the Keys are listed among 374 species newly approved by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service for review as potential endangered-species candidates. All of the species named in a Sept. 26 report are considered "rare southeastern aquatic, riparian and wetland animal and plant species," according to Fish and Wildlife. The listing is a single step in a complex federal process that eventually may result in designation as a threatened or endangered species deserving protection. However, studies to determine that status could be several years away. Noah Greenwald of the Center for Biological Diversity told the Association Press that the new list shows the Fish and Wildlife Service is making "substantial progress." "This is what we were looking for starting to move species out of the pipeline into listing, and getting more species into the pipeline to get them under consideration," Greenwald said. The Center for Biological Diversity and the WildEarth Guardians group had sued Fish and Wildlife Service, charging the agency was failing to meet mandates laid out in the Endangered Species Act. Asettlement with the environmental groups requires Fish and Wildlife to proceed more quickly on many species, including the ones just listed as candidates. Florida accounts for 27 of the plant and animal species on the new list, all of which face recognized threats from habitat loss, invasive exotics, rising sea levels, and other natural or manmade factors. The Miami blue butterfly, which now apparently survives only in the Marquesas west of Key West, was a species frequently cited as deserving endangered-species review but had not been considered because of budget issues. The Miami blue is one of the Keys species in the new list. Others include:Apossible Lower Keys variation of the Eastern ribbonsnake. The Eastern ribbonsnake is found throughout the state, but several reptile biologists contend the rare snakes in the Lower Keys have developed a unique color and scale pattern. The ribbonsnake is venomous, but not at levels considered deadly for humans.The Florida Keys mole skink, one of five acknowledged subspecies of the Florida mole skink. "Reaching 6 inches in length, [the Keys skink] has a brown body, eight yellow stripes and a black-striped reddish tail," details one biological study. "It can sometimes be found under fallen fronds ... [and] in sandy areas, usually near the shoreline or in leaf litter." The skinks can burrow through sand, and move very fast when exposed. They have been recorded from the Dry Tortugas to Key West. They were particularly populous on Lower Keys acreage owned by the U.S. Navy, one survey showed.ALower Keys variation of the striped mud turtle, which grows to 4 inches long. The mud turtle has a mostly brown shell is oval or elongated. The head is "relatively large, usually with a pair of narrow yellowish stripes on each side." "Although filling of mosquito-control ditches has been proposed in conjunction with management of the Key deer, this would destroy some of the mud turtle's most important habitat," says one study.The Florida semaphore cactus, with natural colonies apparently confined to protected land on Little Torch Key and on Swan Key in Biscayne National Park. Other colonies of "the erect, trunk-forming cactus endemic to the Florida Keys" were planted in local protected areas but the mortality was very high due to "root rot" and animal feeding. When mature at 3 to 10 feet, the cactus grows orange flowers and yellow fruit.The Big Pine partridge pea, a small yellow-flowering plant found in the pine rocklands of the Lower Keys, also was listed.

The City Council on Sept. 27 approved a series of changes to the application process by which it gives away a slim portion of its annual budget. It wants more detail on where money is spent and doesnt want any of it used for administrative costs. City Manager Roger Hernstadt told the council the changes were made so that applications will include less narrative language. Were trying to organize the applications so theyre similar and it wont be cumbersome, Hernstadt said. City Finance Director Peter Rosasco advised removing a requirement that groups provide a copy of their most recent audited financial statement, citing their expense. Some of the smaller nonprofits are not having audited financial statements, he said. I would imagine most are nonprofits recognized under the [Internal Revenue Service]. The requirement to show their most recent tax return I think would be something much less onerous and they should be able to comply with. The council approved the following requirements for the application process; public hearings will be scheduled for this month, soon followed by applications becoming available, then a vote on funding. If approved, grants would be paid in 50 percent increments in January and June.Provide a report documenting previous use of Marathons grant money, if previously funded.City funds are to be used for direct services only.Require a copy of the organizations budget.Clarification on whether the grant will be used for services already provided by another local organization.The number of people served by the organization and in what geographical areas.The number of full-time employees, volunteers and total staff.Alist of efforts to solicit volunteers and fundraising.Two hearings planned for this monthMARATHONFort Lauderdale native Tanner Demmery has been hired to replace Paunece Ramage as chief of the Middle Keys office of the Monroe County State Attorneys Office. Demmery, 32, took over as on Sept. 19 after five years as a prosecutor with the Broward County State Attorneys Office. He worked in the sexual battery unit. Its definitely an adjustment, but everyones been helpful, Demmery said of the new supervisory position. Demmery did his undergraduate studies at Florida State University before earning a law degree from Nova Southeastern University in Broward. Hes plenty familiar with the Keys. I was born and raised in Fort Lauderdale and been coming down here for as long as I remember, he said. State Attorney Dennis Ward said Demmery is overseeing two prosecutors, a secretary, victim witness coordinator, receptionist and investigator. Hes a good prosecutor. We talked to people that knew him up there and they had nothing but good things to say about him, Ward said. Hell run the office and do all the felonies and juvenile cases. Ward said Ramage, a five-year veteran of the State Attorneys Office, will continue to work felonies out of the Key West office, where she lives. She was planning to go into private practice before agreeing to take over the Marathon office in September 2010, when Patrick McCullah left the agency to become lead attorney for the Sheriffs Office.Demmery comes from Broward, replaces RamageMIDDLE KEYS WHY LIMIT YOURSELF?THE FUTURE IS HERE!

One would modify the current law that prohibits the consumption of alcohol in public places like sidewalks and commercial parking lots. The amendment would codify the long-held practice of police officers giving a warning before citing or arresting a person who violates the law. We believe it strengthens our code of ordinances, City Attorney Shawn Smith told commissioners at their last meeting, during which the item passed unanimously on first read. He described the target group of the tightened ordinance: Its those individuals that officers have repeated issues with that refuse to comply, that continue to maintain the open container. Violation of the opencontainer law falls short of a misdemeanor designation, but is punishable by a $500 fine, 60 days in jail, or both. In most cases in which homeless people are arrested for the crime, they either cant pay the fine or the bail set by the judge, so they plead guilty and end up serving the jail time. The other ordinance, also up for a second and final public hearing, simply expands the list of city parks where possession of open alcoholic behavior containers is prohibited. Added to the list are the Truman Waterfront, 33 acres at the end of Southard Street; and all city pocket parks, which would join Indigenous Park, Cozumel Park, Bill Butler Park, Little Hamaca Park, Nelson English Park, Mallory Square, Mallory Dock, Wickers Field, Clayton Sterling Fields and the Martin Luther King Jr. Community Pool. Also on the agenda for tonights meeting, which starts at 6 p.m. at Old City Hall on Greene Street, is a series of four ordinances that would amend local regulations to conform to new state law that removes any ability for municipalities to regulate firearms. Changes include:Amending the definition of weapons to exclude firearms.In the law that governs the destruction of birds, people would no longer be forbidden to hunt, trap or shoot birds; rather, they would be banned from doing harm to birds unless granted a permit from the city manager to destroy birds that become obnoxious or destructive.Removing references to firearms in a provision that forbids the agent of any business to purchase, trade, pawn or acquire items like jewelry, furniture or other secondhand goods from minors.Repealing an ordinance that prohibits possession of firearms in the city cemetery.Cops to get more leeway in citing violatorsKEY WESTBy SEAN KINNEYskinney@keynoter.comCity likely to pay more for meeting spaceThe Marathon City Council met in regular session on Sept. 27 and took the following actions:Discussed how to proceed following Monroe County increasing its price to use the Marathon Government Center meeting room for twicemonthly council meetings. The countys 2011-12 budget has rates going up $11.17 per hour to $251.16 per hour, and also has a new provision for the city to be billed each meeting for a onehour setup and breakdown. City Manager Roger Hernstadt said that means the city would be billed an extra $500 every meeting to use furniture and video equipment that is sitting here all the time, every day. The council meets twice monthly, meaning it would cost at least another $12,000 annually. Were hoping we can get it resolved without having to incur the additional expense, he said. Councilman Mike Cinque said I think the countys making a mistake. Theyre losing money and costing us money. The council tabled a vote to agree to the new costs allow the County Commission to discuss the new rates at its October monthly meeting.Unanimously approved a $26,905 contract with Marathon Electric Sign & Light to install an electronic marquee sign at the Marathon Community Park. Councilman Pete Worthington voiced concerns with a possible proliferation of such signs in the city.County ups its fees for coming yearMARATHONBy RYAN McCARTHYrmccarthy@keynoter.comMearns manslaughter case delayedThe attorney for a Marathon man charged with negligent manslaughter for his role in the February autocrash death of 17-year-old Amber Kogelis was granted a trial continuance at a Monday hearing. Michael Mearns, 24, is accused of acting with reckless indifference in the hours before the fatal February crash. I continued [the case] because I just got this massive amount of discovery, attorney Hal Schuhmacher said. Were looking into some of the recently disclosed evidence and we anticipate doing some pretrial depositions of these witnesses. The hearing was held in Key West before Circuit Court Judge Mark Jones, who was assigned the case after Acting Circuit Court Judge Ruth Becker recused herself in July. Schuhmacher said he wasted little time asking Jones to move the case back to Marathon. First words out of my mouth were that wed really like you to come to Marathon.It remains to be seen if the trial will be where it should, he said. Shortly after midnight on Feb. 25, Mearns was the lone passenger in a 1998 Ford Explorer driven by Kogelis, of Lower Matecumbe Key. The Florida Highway Patrol says Kogelis whose blood alcohol content was .125 percent lost control of the SUVwhile on a curved strip of Aviation Boulevard in Marathon, striking a parked 2006 Ford pickup and running over shrubs and a curb before hitting a dock and landing in Dodge Lake. Mearns, the son of former Marathon Mayor Randy Mearns and grandson of former Councilwoman Marjie Mearns, escaped the SUV after it plunged into the water, but Kogelis was still trapped when deputies and paramedics arrived. She was dead at the scene. Mearns is accused of knowingly letting Kogelis drive while drunk, and also knowing she had only a learners permit that didnt allow her to drive after dark.Attorney wants trial moved to MarathonIN THE COURTSBy RYAN McCARTHYrmccarthy@keynoter.com New top prosecutor for the Middle Keys KEYSNET.COM

EDITORIALVillage isn't Burger KingLETTERS TO THE EDITORCrime? Not necessarilyI would like to comment on the arrests of the two individuals who had whole stone crab on their vessel out of season. Taken out of context, this sounds like a serious conservation violation. Writing as a past commercial fisherman, I would like to point out what they did is common practice, although it is illegal. When we get within a few weeks of opening stone crab season, most fishermen start saving their stone crabs since lobster won't enter a trap with a stone crab inside. Fishermen take the stone crabs out of the traps until they have a few dozen or so and then place them in one trap and give them some fish to eat so that on opening day on Oct. 15, they can pull the trap and harvest them legally. I imagine that is what these individuals were doing. If they were intending to harvest the crabs that day, they would have been breaking the claws as they went along. The two broken claws on board were the result of the crabs being in one container and they interacted with each other. I hope the authorities can put this in perspective. Ronald Randall Key Colony BeachOpt-out option viableIf the main objection to the Affordable Health Care Act, a.k.a. Obamacare, is the mandate to purchase insurance there may be a way around that. Why not allow anyone to opt out by simply signing a new legal document called the Opt-Out? It would be similar to a living will and just as binding. In the Opt-Out, one would state where he so she would like to be taken in case of illness or accident, such as home or to a relative's home. If for any reason he or she were treated at a hospital or by a physician, he or she would be billed for the full cost of the treatment. He or she would be responsible for payment of the cost. If a person had sufficient personal wealth, then there is no problem. If the amount bankrupted them, no asset would be exempted; all could be sold to pay the bill. If there were not enough money, then the next of kin (going down the line of kin) would be responsible until the debt was settled. Why should responsible taxpayers have to foot the bill for these people? Let their families pay or pressure them to be responsible and carry insurance. There are provisions in the Affordable Healthcare Act to help people who lack the resources to pay for insurance, so there are no excuses. E.T. Shafer IslamoradaA wonderful experienceI am senior at Marathon High School. I would like to thank my most generous sponsors for their time and donations that made it possible for me to attend a prestigious medical camp this summer. My National Youth Leadership Forum on Medicine experience in Boston was one of the most rewarding activities. During this 10-day camp at Babson College, I learned hands-on skills required for the medical field, including how to suture, take blood pressures, interact with patients, apply for medical school, what is required to do so, and select an area in the medical field. In my camp, I had the opportunity to visit various medical schools in the New England area, including Harvard, Boston University and the University of New England in Maine, to get a feel for what courses must be taken to pursue a career. Guest speakers from Boston hospitals came to share their experiences and knowledge of various topics, and the hardships as well as benefits of pursuing careers in the medical field. For the first time in forum history, a live knee replacement surgery was shown to all of the scholars. We could even ask the doctor questions during the operation. I will take the knowledge I gained through this process throughout the rest of my life. Learning all of these skills and interacting with 350 of the most advanced young adults in the nation was an amazing experience. My thanks go out to Ms. Lynne for all her help, and to my sponsors, the American Legion Woman's Auxiliary, the Zonta Club of Marathon/Eckerd scholarship, and the Veterans Council of Monroe County. I truly could not have done it without their help.Haylie Heller MarathonMental illness treatableMental Illness Awareness Week takes place Oct. 2-8 and is an opportunity to learn more about serious mental illnesses such as major depression, bipolar disorder and schizophrenia. Mental illnesses are medical illnesses. One in four adults experiences a mental health problem in any given year. One in 17 lives with serious, chronic mental illness. Many people and families in our community are directly affected by mental illness. The good news is that treatment does work and recovery is possible. On average, people living with serious mental illness live 25 years less than the rest of the population. Unfortunately, less than one-third of adults and less than one-half of children with a diagnosed illness receive treatment. We want people to understand mental illness. The more people know, the better they can help themselves or help their loved ones get the help and support they need. When mental health care isn't available in a community, the results often are lost jobs and careers, broken families, more homelessness, more welfare and much more expensive costs for hospital emergency rooms, nursing homes, schools, police and even courts, jails and prisons. Heron-Peacock Supported Living is a local nonprofit organization providing housing and supportive services to adults with mental illness here in Monroe County. We encourage you to learn more about mental illness support, education and advocacy at www.nami.org .Richard Casey Executive director Heron-Peacock Supported Living Marathon, Key WestPirate party's a blastSave-A-Turtle and the Marathon Wild Bird Center would like to extend our thanks to Cabana Breezes for hosting the Conchtoberfest Pirate Party fundraiser. Special thanks go to Tara, Chris, April and staff for all their hard work and professionalism. What a wonderful way to raise money for two great organizations and it was a fun evening. Thank you for all the support from everyone who attended, the nicest people around. It truly shows that we live in such a generous and supportive community. Rick Sall, Save-A-Turtle Kelly Grinter, Bird Center MarathonWagner is excellenceIn June 2008, Marathon firefighters were not as good as they should have been in responding to emergency situations and fighting fires. William Wagner III, with his excellent reputation of firefighting/paramedic training and emergency response skills, was brought to Marathon to provide instruction and leadership to the Marathon firefighters/paramedics. This was a two-year plan. Following within the plan, an assistant fire chief was to be brought in to train under William and take over as chief and continue the leadership training established by William. The current Marathon firefighters/paramedics are now the very best. Hopefully Marathon will be able to bring in a chief who will continue the quality of established training and leadership and any compromise will not have a negative impact of the safety of the citizens of Marathon and the Middle Keys community. Thank you to William for his time, training and leadership. Clyde Burnett Marathon Editor's note: The Marathon City Council has voted to discontinue an agreement it has with Islamorada to share Wagner as fire chief. Council looks at trying to opt out of sewers while allowing more buildingWe'll keep this simple: Islamorada can't have it both ways. Last week, the Village Council toyed with the idea of simply telling Florida that it can't afford sewers as the state mandates. At the same time, the village is looking for ways to get state approval for more construction than otherwise would be allowed as an Area of Critical State Concern. There's an inherent conflict in those two goals. City Manager Ed Kokonis was explaining how the process works as part of an effort to push ahead on WinnDixie's plans for a grocery store in Islamorada. Islamorada gets just under 6,700 square feet of commercial space to permit each year under the comprehensive plan filed by the village and supervised by the state. WinnDixie's proposed market needs 22,000 square feet of building. "We found out this year that once somebody wants to build something of decent size that it can turn out that we don't have enough square footage," Koconis told the council. What he didn't add but seemed obvious: The village also doesn't have sewers, which are one of the triggers used by the state to measure compliance with Area of Critical State Concern oversight. Those regulations govern building permit allocations for virtually all of Monroe County and its municipalities, with the exception of Key West and Key Colony Beach, which have long had central sewers and separate agreements with the state. Even though the village doesn't yet have results from four engineering companies bidding on building Islamorada's sewers, the council members made it clear they are having second thoughts about proceeding. Mayor Michael Reckwerdt said if the bids come back too high, "then Islamorada may very well say [to the state], OK,'and stop." That's a pattern repeated in Islamorada when it comes to sewers. In the past, various councils have paid lip service to the notion that sewers are needed because ultimately they will clean up nearshore waters and avoid long-term damage to the fisheries and reefs that make the Keys unique among destinations in the continental U.S. But each time the price tags come back from various and assorted consultants or village staff, the council gets cold feet. So last week's pronouncements about taking another look at moving forward is nothing new. What is new, however, is the open admission that Islamorada may simply back away from promises made to the state each and every year for the past decade. But some village officials sense a whole new attitude in Tallahassee and they think the time to strike is now. Gov. Rick Scott successfully got the state Department of Community Affairs merged into the new Department of Economic Opportunity, and most believe the new agency is much more developer-friendly than a separate DCAwas. "You can get just about anything you want," Councilman Ken Philipson said Maybe. But telling the state no on sewers at the same time asking to waive the community's own comprehensive plan and longstanding state oversight to approve largescale commercial construction well, that's something else entirely. This is Marathon's fire station at Florida Keys Marathon Airport. Come next year, a new chief will be running it.Keynoter photo by LARRY KAHN GOOD SHOWINGMonroe County Sheriff's Office Explorers and their advisors pe rformed well at a Florida Sheriff's Explorer Association delegates event in St.Lucie County in September.Explorers Bud Hummelsine and Alex Rojas placed first and second against 32 shooters in the semiautomatic pistol competition and took first place for having the team high average.

Keys man indicted for conspiracyAKey Largo man is among 20 people indicted Thursday by a federal grand jury for what prosecutors say was a $40 million mortgage fraud scheme. Yovanis Obregon Jimenez, 38, whom the Miami U.S. Attorney's Office says is a real estate appraiser, is charged with conspiracy to commit bank fraud. Others are charged with that and bank fraud. According to the indictment, from March 2006 through June 2008, the defendants conspired to submit false loan applications and related documents to multiple banks for the purpose of obtaining about $40 million in mortgage loans and home equity lines of credit. This resulted in approximately $20 million in losses to the banks, the U.S. Attorney's Office says. The indictment says Jimenez and three others submitted in Jimenez's name a bogus loan application for $250,000 and related documents to Regions Bank in connection with a piece of property on Collins Avenue on Miami Beach. That reportedly happened on Nov. 21, 2007. Prosecutors didn't say how much Jimenez received for his involvement, but U.S. Attorney Wilfredo Ferrer said in a prepared statement that overall, "Even by South Florida fraud standards, today's prosecution is shocking. Never before have we seen so many real estate and bank industry professionals charged in a single indictment."Keynoter StaffMORTGAGE FRAUD

To be recognized as a top performer on key quality measures, an organization must meet two 95 percent performance thresholds. Mariners was recognized for achieving these thresholds for pneumonia and surgical care. Mariners is one of only 405 U.S. hospitals earning the distinction of top performer. The Joint Commission, based in Oakbrook Terrace, Ill., and Washington, D.C., accredits and certifies more than 19,000 health-care organizations and programs in the United States. NEIDITZNew pro-growth agency birthedAformer Marine Corps officer is approaching his job as head of Florida's new economic development agency with military fervor. The Department of Economic Opportunity, created to help attract new business and grow jobs, became official Saturday under Doug Darling. He most recently served as Gov. Rick Scott's deputy chief of staff and Cabinet affairs director. "I would maintain that we are at war," Darling recently told a Senate committee. "We're at war with other states. We're at war with other countries." Scott pushed for the new department to help him keep his campaign pledge to create 700,000 new jobs in seven years by attracting new businesses to the state. The Republican governor, though, has since backed away from his original promise that those 700,000 would be in addition to about 1 million jobs state economists had forecast Florida would add over that span anyway. Darling also said he'd employ the same strategy of "overwhelming fire power" that the Marines use when engaging an enemy. Not everyone, though, is convinced he's got the kind of fire power he needs. Senate President Pro Tempore Mike Bennett, a Bradenton Republican and Vietnam veteran, questioned the hiring of "account executives" who themselves lack business experience. Their job will be to close deals set up by Enterprise Florida, an existing publicprivate economic development partnership. Bennett said that the account executives lacked business experience and that none has "ever created a job yet.''He urged Darling to instead hire people "who've actually signed the front of a paycheck." "If you would look to the retired community, people who have started those [businesses], people who've got some wrinkles on their face instead of some kid who has graduated from Florida State, I think you would probably do quite well," Bennett said. Enterprise Florida already has the kind of people Bennett is talking about, Darling said as he defended his staff. The new department was cobbled together from several existing agencies, including the governor's Office of Tourism, Trade and Economic Development. Also being folded in are the former Agency For Workforce Innovation, which fills the role of a labor department, and what remains of a downsized Department of Community Affairs. The remnants of Community Affairs will be part of the department's Division of Community Development. At Scott's urging, the Legislature repealed most state controls over urban sprawl and growth management that Community Affairs which had state develpment oversight of the Keys had overseen. Scott contended the agency was blocking new development that could help restore Florida's economy. Environmentalists and growth management advocates disputed that claim. "Our position was and is that the changes that abolished the Department of Community Affairs were in no way necessary to facilitate Florida's economic recovery," Florida Audubon Advocacy Director Charles Lee said.Critics say oversight will be lessenedAssociated PressECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT Celebrating Women in Business National Women in Business Week October17th 21st KEYS WIDE COVERAGEPublications: € Florida Keys Keynoter € Key West Keynoter Wednesday, October19th € The Reporter Friday, October21st also on ourWebsite atCall oremail Laura Preston € Lpreston@keynoter.com305-743-5551 Deadline: Monday, October10th at 5PM Put yourBusiness in the Spotlight!

Refuge assures future fire safetyThings will change before the next planned burn singes the pine rocklands of Big Pine Key, federal wildlife refuge managers have pledged. ASept. 28 community meeting called by the National Key Deer Refuge drew a big crowd of island residents to the Big Pine United Methodist Church for a review what's come to be called the Blue Hole Fire. The Sept. 15 fire, ignited by federal staff on 20 acres of pine rocklands habitat, spread well beyond planned boundaries to about 100 acres. Dozens of Pine Heights subdivision residents were forced to evacuate for about five hours, and many additional fire units were called in. The fire was contained to refuge property, and no reports of damage to private property have been received. "We wanted to apologize publicly," said Dana Cohen, fire management specialist at the refuge. "There have been so many lessons." Residents at the meeting demanded more notice about when and where future burns are planned. Refuge staff agreed the need for improved notification is "spot on." So-called prescribed burns are designed to thin the underbrush to reduce the risk of wildfires and to maintain habitat for species such as the endangered Key deer. "Notifications of the prescribed burn were not distributed widely enough," said Anne Morkill, Keys refuges manager. "It's something that we were focused on, but we focused on one subdivision" near the burn site. "Now we know the entire island is interested, and we will have broader coverage," she said. An inter-agency review of the fire "agrees they do need more communication, although the refuge there does way more than a lot of other places," said Vince Carver, a U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service fire ecologist. "But Big Pine is a unique place." Carver said future controlled burns on Big Pine Key none is planned before late summer 2012 will be considered Type 1, meaning that chances of accidental spread are high. That will require a firecontrol staff on hand that is larger and more experienced in "dealing with the components in that fuel type," he said. "The crew that was there has a pretty good record with prescribed burns," Carver said, "but not on the pine rocklands of Big Pine Key." Refuge staff said rules likely will be tightened to require more favorable weather conditions before controlled burns are ignited. "We have a lot of environmental parameters in conditions in which we choose to burn," Morkill said. "Based on conditions that were forecast, this was no different than other burns. But we could increase our margin for error. This was within the margin of error but toward the lower end." Additional public meetings will be planned over the winter to answer questions and listen to "folks who do have a lot of local knowledge," Morkill said. The Key Deer Refuge is adding reports, studies and response plans to its website outlining the prescribedburn process. "People asked for this information so we're putting it up there to show how our decisions are based on science," Cohen said. All areas in the 100 acres burned, including the Blue Hole wildlife observation area and the Watson Nature Trail, reopened to public access last week.Better notice to the public is a priorityBIG PINE KEY D Photo by PAULA CANNONA firefighter takes a breather while fighting the out-ofcontrol fire on Big Pine Key on Sept.15.Twenty or so acres were to be burned,but five times that many went up in flames.By KEVIN WADLOWSenior Staff Writer kwadlow@keynoter.comNEWS BRIEFSSidewalk plan gets public scrutinyKey West city commissioners Clayton Lopez and Teri Johnston are hosting a community meeting at 6 p.m. Thursday to review preliminary designs for a reconstructed Virginia Street sidewalk. The plan includes sidewalks wide enough to comply with the federal Americans with Disabilities Act. The proposal would create 5-footwide sidewalks on the west side of Virginia from Windsor Lane to Varela Street. The meeting will be held at Old Fire Station No. 3 at 1026 Grinnell Street.

Sen. Bill Montford, DTallahassee, said he'll sponsor legislation seeking to have the state adopt guidelines for schools to protect athletes from the heat, saying Florida would be the first state in the south to do so. Montford said in a statement that the death of Georgia high school football player D.J. Searcy at a camp in Florida pointed to the need. The 16-year-old defensive lineman at Fitzgerald High School in south Georgia was at a football camp in August at Florida Bible Camp near High Springs when he collapsed, and heat was likely a factor with the heat index over 100.News Service of FloridaOUR SCHOOLS

All that was left to be decided against visiting Berean Christian was the final score, which wrapped up as a 51-14 Hurricane victory. Coral Shores (3-2) scored on all four offensive possessions in the first half, and threw in a pair of touchdowns on a punt return and interception to build a 39-0 halftime lead. "For the first time all year, we started fast," head coach Ed Holly said. "We competed all game." Senior halfback Andrew Garcia scored twice within a minute and a half of game time in the opening period, taking Berean's first punt back 73 yards for a touchdown. After freshman defender Alberto Anderson intercepted a pass to end Berean's second drive, Garcia followed his blockers for a 12-yard touchdown run on first down. Berean's Bulldogs outscored the Canes, 14-12, in the second half but most of the final two quarters were played by Cane reserves on the field under a running clock. Berean (0-4) opened the third quarter by recovering an onsides kick, then started hitting passes to fuel two scoring drives. Coral Shores answered both. Garcia scored his third touchdown on a 16-yard run, and freshman back Eddie Dunn scored his second TD of the game, a 14-yarder, to set the final score.Game is total domination for the Keys teamCORAL SHORES 51,BEREAN CHRISTIAN 14 Keynoter photo by KEVIN WADLOWCoral Shores runner Kodi Roberts (22) picks up blocks from Hurricane linemen Justin Erickson (61),Tyler Smith (66) and David Bogie (64) to head downfield for a big gain in Friday's 51-14 win over Berean Christian.By KEVIN WADLOWSenior Staff Writer kwadlow@keynoter.comSee Coral Shores,2B Watercooling but dolphin still hereOur first cool front came and went over the weekend. As time slips by, these fronts will come more frequently and spur the transition from summer to fall fishing patterns. That said, we experienced a very good dolphin bite through the weekend, with some slammer-size fish over 25 pounds showing in the catches. The dolphin were found on weed lines anywhere from 20 to 30 miles offshore in the Middle Keys. As the waters cool, the dolphin move on to be replaced by our wintertime visitors, such as kingfish, cobia and sailfish. We've seen exciting action with daytime swordfishing as that bite has steadily improved over the past couple of weeks. If you don't happen to have the requisite equipment or know-how, I highly recommend you hire a professional charter captain who does for your shot at this ultimate billfish. The reef action of late has been on the slow side, mostly due to the crystalclear water and lack of current. The front we had over the weekend may have stirred the pot enough to reinvigorate the reef dwellers. Again, as the shallow reef waters cool to the 80degree range, the snapper and grouper will move into these areas, and that fishing will improve dramatically.

Better know around school as the basketball team's point guard, Wagner finished 14th in a personalbest time of 17 minutes, 54 seconds. He was a minute behind winner Blake Arnold of Admiral Farr High and among the top among all 205 runners taking part. Wagner is only the second Conch to win a medal at the event. Aeschton Tomita, who did not run Friday because of flu-like symptoms, became the first last year. Despite Tomita's absence, the Key West boys team finished eighth out of 27 teams. "Everybody ran well," said coach Terence White. "The [3.1-mile] course was flat and there were a lot of spectators, which is conducive to good performances." Four other Conchs ran personal bests Tony Guieb (14th in 18:51), Brock Guzman (51st in 19:34, Tyler Hancock (81st in 20:19) and Ryan's brother, Everett Wagner (82nd in 20:22). Aaron Ansell (21.19) and Bobby Finigan (21:35) also ran. "We really have about a dozen real good runners," White said, "including some who are new to the sport and run with aggression and without fear." Two Conch girls also ran personal bests Tristin Milliken, who was 29th in 22:52, and Marlee Gil, who was 42nd in 23:50. Key West did not take a full girls team.

Abotched Ransom Everglades punt left a short field to work with and the Dolphins scored the goahead touchdown with 1:37 remaining in regulation. Rather than go for a twopoint conversion, Marathon kicked the extra point to give the team a 14-8 lead. But a long kickoff return and a 25-yard touchdown run tied the game in just 33 seconds. The Raiders connected on the extra point to take a 15-14 lead and won the game by that score. Martin said he didn't want to risk the two-point conversion and that he trusted his defense to close the game out. "Even if we go for two, I'm not going to chance that they don't even have to attempt the extra point to win," Martin said. "Seeing that they hadn't moved the ball all night, you would think we would be able to hold them." Ransom produced just 160 yards of offense, 95 of which came on two plays. "For the better part of the game, we did a good job," Martin said. Ramarlo Robertson led the team with seven tackles, seven assists, two forced fumbles and a tackle for a loss.

The Eagles (3-2) scored two of their nine touchdowns on kickoff returns by Shaka Smith, and got another on the return of a fumbled Westwood Christian kick runback. Eagle quarterback Matt Cavanagh logged his best game of the season, passing for four touchdowns in his 8of-15 aerial game. Kadian Carter caught five throws for 100 yards, including touchdowns of 31, 13 and 3 yards in the game at Westwood. "Matt was moving around the pocket better which gave him a little more confidence," ICS head coach Bruce Gendron said. "We ran more pass plays to work on some stuff." Ranger Gilliland scored on a 35-yards reception as the Eagles rang up a season-high 143 passing yards. "We only ran for about 150 yards but we had a big day on special teams," Gendron said. Shaka Smith, a quick seventh-grader, ran kickoff returns back for scores of 70 and 55 yards. And on a kickoff to Westwood's Warriors, Carter jarred the loose. Smith gathered it up and scored. The Eagles grabbed a 3318 halftime lead and kept up the pace in the second half. "It wasn't a great defensive game for us," Gendron said. "We're still struggling with poor tackling.

I had the best success last week with fresh shrimp and chunks of pinfish, although chunks of ballyhoo will work equally well.The week's bestDave Jefferson from Port St. Lucie won a dream fishing vacation in a Gaff Magazine contest. It included a stay at Captain Pip's Marina and Hideaway in Marathon and a full day offshore trip aboard the Papa Pip's with captains Howard Kelley and Zach Willis. I'm sure Dave never expected to have the catch of his life, too. They first put a mess of dolphin in the boat, including a 35-pound cow, a 20pound bull and six more in the 15-pound category. With that accomplished, Kelley decided to try dropping for swordfish. They were 26 miles out in 1,200 to 1,400 feet of water when they got hooked up. Their first drop produced an 18pound barrel fish. Their second drop went unanswered, but their third and final drop seized the prize. After a 50-minute fight, Dave and the crew hauled a 200-plus-pound swordfish onto the deck of the Papa Pip's. We can't beat that, but the SeaSquared had a real mixed menu of fishing last week. John and Teri Jordan, from the Chicago area, and the Fernandes group, from Tampa, caught dolphin, wahoo and tripletail. The Petris, from Louisiana, and the Hazens, from Delaware, fished on the reef and in the bay, with mangrove and yellowtail snapper, hogfish and porgy to enjoy for dinner. Darrell Diemer, from Mims, Fla., caught a lemon shark and a barracuda, while the Blossom family, from Sebastian, caught dinner and a show mangrove snappers and lemon sharks up to eight feet. Capt. Moe Mottice, of Reel Lucky Charters at Turtle Kraals in Key West, put his anglers on yellowtail snapper on the reef edge, with kingfish, cobia and barracuda mixed in. They caught mangrove snapper, cobia and big Goliath grouper on the Gulf wrecks, while the tarpon kept them busy on the incoming tide around Fort Zachary Taylor. Also fishing in Key West, Capt. Greg Poland put New Orleans angler Al Jones on a nice 15-pound permit using a live crab on 10-pound line.Casting for CharityCapt.

Raiders and stalled progress on offensive drives. One such mistake led to Ransom's first touchdown early in the second quarter. The snap on a fourthdown play sailed over the punter's head and left the Raiders with just 17 yards to travel for their first score. Two plays later, it was 6-0 after a blocked extra-point attempt. Marathon managed to take the lead just before halftime after Yoniel Esquirol intercepted a ball and ran it back to the Ransom 47-yard line. Senior quarterback Trevelle Beckford began the drive with a 26-yard run and capped it off with a touchdown pass to Carlos O'Farrill to make it 7-6. Beckford paced the offense with 26 carries for 136 yards, and was 5-of-9 passing for 36 yards and a touchdown. He also caught a 12-yard touchdown pass. The teams traded punts for most of the third quarter until Ransom broke a 70yard run inside the Marathon 10-yard line. Marathon appeared to escape trouble after recovering a Raiders fumble, but Beckford was sacked in the end zone for a safety that put Ransom up 8-7. The Dolphins held Ransom off until the Raiders'botched punt that set Marathon up on the 26yard line. Tommy Dodamead hit Beckford for the go-ahead score before Ransom answered back and won the game.

Friday afternoon, it was sophomore Derrick Allen, who emerged after barely losing (23.75 seconds) to talented senior teammate A.J. Hally (23.60) in the 50yard freestyle race during the Conchs'meet with G. Holmes Braddock. "He's a raw athlete!" Wise bellowed to no one in particular in a voice that travels easily over watery expanses. "He can't dive! He struggles with flip-turns! His strokes are wild! He's like an outboard engine revving up! He's a competitor and a half!" Wise added that he believes Allen, by the time he is a senior, can break Luke Knight's school record. Knight, now at the University of Nevada-Las Vegas, swam the 50 in 22.22 as a Conch senior in 2007. Allen, who was not on the team last year, smiled at Wise's assessment. "I've been focusing a lot on my kicks, stretching out on my strokes and breathing as little as possible," he said. "And A.J. pushes me a lot." At Friday's meet won by the Conch boys team, 105-65, and by the Conch girls, 124-45, several performances pleased Wise and his boss, coach Lori Bosco. Among them:Devin Osterhoudt, hours before her surprise 16th birthday party, won the 50 free in a personal-best 28.67 seconds. She also won the 100 free.Dora DeMaria won the 500 free (6:29) and the 100 breaststroke in 1:14.76, just off her best of 1:14.Michelle Konick won the 200 individual medley in 2:56.Madison Nasser won the 100 butterfly in 1:24.Alice Tallmadge won the 100 backstroke in 1:26.Vincent Wassylenko won the 100 back in 1:14. And in the day's final event, Allen reappeared and was part of the 400 free relay team (with Wassylenko, Claudio Montone-Rodriguez and Zane Osborn) that won easily in 3:53. Some of the Conchs will compete Friday and Saturday at the Florida Swimming Pool Association Invitational at the Orlando YMCA Aquatic Center.Both the boys and the girls win swim meetKEY WEST SWIMMINGBy DICK WAGNERKeynoter ContributorPhoto by BERT BUDDEKey West's Derrick Allen takea break on the deck of the college pool during the Conchs'meet Friday with G.Holmes Braddock.

Spectators can unleash their inner buccaneer during the festivities, set to kick off at 6:30 p.m. Oct. 20 with a Captain Morgan LookAlike Pirate Plunder Party at Snapper's Restaurant, mile marker 94.5. On Oct. 21, Black Caesar's Parade is slated to head down U.S. 1. Participants are expected to gather at 5 p.m. at Coconuts Restaurant, on Caribbean Drive at mile marker 100. Starting at 6:30, the parade proceeds south along the highway to stage an invasion of the Pilot House on Seagate Boulevard not far from the place where Black Caesar is thought to have maintained a harem and buried treasure worth millions of dollars. Judging is to follow, along with a bash with live music, dancing, grub and grog. Caesar and his buccaneer brethren might be spotted haunting the Pirate Bazaar and Thieves'Market Oct. 22, from noon to 11 p.m. at Sundowners, mile marker 104 bayside. Pirate paraphernalia, memorabilia and art are to be among the attractions for attendees. From 2 to 10 p.m. the same day, Black Caesar's pirate ship Queen Anne's Revenge II features Caesar's Concert on the Bay, with continuous live music from the ship docked on Blackwater Sound. The concert can be viewed from the water's edge at Sundowners and Jimmy Johnson's Big Chill, or music-lovers can join other vessels on the water for a pirate raft-up. At sunset, enjoy a professionally choreographed re-enactment of Black Caesar's return complete with artillery line, encampments, battles and skits on Blackwater Sound. Spectators can watch from Sundowners and the Big Chill, or from the water. Then on Oct. 23, scalawags can choose from a variety of themed events including an underwater treasure hunt, a piratethemed brunch, by-land-orby-sea booty hunts and poker run, or browsing the pirate bazaar from noon to 5 p.m. The festival culminates that afternoon with a 4 p.m. Buccaneer Bash and Finale on the beach at Sundowners. Prizes await the likeliest lad and loveliest lassie, and best buccaneer and sauciest wench, in kids'and adult costume contests.Black Caesar to star at the festivalKEY LARGO
