The program is supposed to give homeowners a discount for doing construction upgrades, such as improving roofs or better protecting doors and windows. But it has faced criticism recently because many customers have lost previous discounts known in the insurance industry as "mitigation credits" when Citizens ordered reinspections of homes. Citizens Chairman Carlos Lacasa and President Barry Gilway held a news conference in Miami Friday to announce changes to the program. Those changes include offering free follow-up inspections if homeowners disagree with the inspectors' findings. Also, Citizens will provide more information to consumers about a disputeresolution process. Gilway said the changes will put the "onus" on the state-backed Citizens to validate whether homeowners should receive the credits. In the Keys, property owners have complained to Fair Insurance Rates in Monroe (F.I.R.M.) about inspectors unfamiliar with the tougher building codes used in the Keys. And disallowing wooden shutters that had previously been counted as "hardening" structures. "Wooden shutters, properly built and installed, are still in the building code," said Annalise Mannix, F.I.R.M.'s executive director. State officials have said strengthening homes against hurricane damage is critical to the property-insurance system and that credits can serve as an incentive for customers to spend thousands of dollars on improvements. "We want to get the credits to them," Gilway said. "That's what ultimately reduces our exposure."

Monroe County's draft ordinance to create several new managed anchoring zones reaches the FWC board at its Sept. 5 meeting in Tampa. FWC Division of Law Enforcement staff who reviewed the county plan endorsed it, "contingent upon the Sunset Cove Managed Anchorage Zone provision being removed." Apilot program for five Florida coastal areas was enacted in 2009 to "explore potential options for regulating the anchoring or mooring of non-liveaboard vessels outside the marked boundaries of public mooring fields." Sunset Cove lies about 50 miles from the nearest existing mooring field, FWC staff said. "Staff understands the Sunset Cove provision was originally added to the ordinance due to the amount of public comment received from residents" in a June 2011 meeting," the report says. "Unfortunately, Sunset Cove is 45 to 50 miles from the Marathon mooring field... These were the mooring fields identified as part of Monroe County's original application package for the pilot program." "There is also strong opposition from the boater groups on this provision,"Managed anchor zones on FWC docket Sept.5KEY LARGOSee Anchoring,2ABight budget shows surplusThe Key West City Commission on Monday previewed the fiscal year 201213 budget for the Key West Bight, learning the business tax zone is running a surplus. They also wrestled with possibly closing narrow Lazy Way and converting that to pedestrian and bicycle use only. City staff painted a rosy picture of the Bight, which includes lucrative city leases and Ferry Terminal revenues. The fiscal year starts Oct. 1 with $6.8 million of unrestricted fund balance and is projected to end Sept. 30, 2013 with a projected $5.5 million reserve. Operating expenses for the bight, which runs on the Gulf of Mexico side along Caroline Street, are projected at $6,095,166 and offset by projected revenues of $8,362,916. Marilyn Wilbarger, the city's senior property manager, says revenues from fuel sales and dockage are expected to increase when the city opens a public fuel dock and more berths at the ferry terminal in the coming months.

The swimmer was pulled from the water at 12:55 a.m., her crew reported, as a thunderstorm raged and winds and waves tossed her support boats around. Her team had previously tweeted that she came out of the water at 7:42 a.m., and offered no explanation for the change. In a blog posting, crew member Candace Hogan wrote that Nyad angrily shook her head after being pulled from the water and planned to return to finish the swim after the storms subsided. "When can I get back in?" Hogan quoted the swimmer as saying. "I want full transparency that I was out. But I have plenty left in me and I want to go on." She was aboard a boat headed to the Florida Keys and was likely to arrive Tuesday afternoon. Nyad, who turns 63 on Wednesday, was making her third attempt since last summer to become the first person to cross the Florida Straits without a shark cage. She also made a failed try with a cage in 1978. Nyad had previously said this would be her last attempt, though she made the same promise to her friends and handlers last September as she stepped from her boat onto a Key West dock, her lips and limbs red and swollen from jellyfish stings.Fought storms, jellyfish in failed quest Associated PressKEY WEST By KEVIN WADLOWSenior Staff Writer kwadlow@keynoter.comBy SEAN KINNEYskinney@keynoter.com .(AP Photo/Diana Nyad via the Florida Keys News Bureau,Christi Barli)In this photo provided by Diana Nyad via the Florida Keys News Bureau,the endurance swimmer rests after she was pulled out of the water between Cuba and the Florida Keys early Tuesday

Michael W. Kimbler, 44, and Michael Bland, 31, both of Big Coppitt Key, were sentenced in federal district court in Miami. Senior U.S. District Court Judge James Lawrence King sentenced Kimbler to nine months in prison, following by a one-year term of supervised release. Kimbler also forfeited his vessel. Bland, who cooperated in the federal investigation, was sentenced to one year probation, with the special condition that he serve six months of home confinement. And Bland was also ordered to forfeit a vessel used in the illegal lobster harvesting, a vessel valued in court records at $40,000.

The Navy has proposed three operational changes that would increase flights out of Naval Air Station Key West's Boca Chica Field and swap the F/A-18 Hornets now in use with newer, and sometimes louder, F/A-35 Lightning II. The Navy plans are contained in a draft environmental impact statement, which isn't set to be finalized or implemented until sometime next summer. Commissioners, meeting Aug. 15 at the Murray E. Nelson Government and Cultural Center in Key Largo, unanimously approved transmission of a 12-page response to the Navy, containing 41 specific questions or comments. Ultimately, the commission asks Navy brass to withdraw their draft EIS and start again. Commissioner Kim Wigington explains the intent: "The request is to keep the [draft EIS] in draft form in order for us to review it in draft form and for us to know what the impacts of the changes will be in order to intelligently comment on those impacts. "If the next document we see is the final version with some partial changes," she says, "we will not have the opportunity for meaningful input." Central to the county's objections is the notion of changing planes; county commissioners and staff maintain that the impacts of the F/A-18 were never fully analyzed by Navy officials before being introduced. Consultant Michael Davis of mainland firm Keith and Schnars laid out the quandary for commissioners: "We believe that the baseline might not be very accurate. That becomes a potential problem in understanding and having the commission and citizens of Monroe County understanding what the real impacts of each of these alternatives the Navy is considering." Of the four options three alternatives and taking no action the most extreme would increase yearly flight operations from the current 47,500 to a maximum of 57,000, in addition to swapping the F18 Super Hornet for the newer, and in some instances louder, F-35 Lightning II. Monroe County has on the books an ordinance that defines the area impacted by Navy jet noise and how the military and county can collaborate on zoning and development issues. That area, running from Stock Island west along the Keys to Bay Point, encompasses some 2,532 developed properties, according to county Growth Management staff. John Abbot, also of Keith and Schnars, says the increases considered by the Navy are increases over a 10-year average and pondered what conditions would be like if the Navy increased operations at the same levels but in a peak year such as 2003. "None of the noise analyses ... looked at a peak year like that. Lately the number of operations has been below average. What would be the noise impacts for a peak year?" "It makes sense to ask the Navy to go and redraw this version of the EIS," Abbot says, "Look at those impacts then re-release it."Raise extensive list of questions over impactsMILITARY Keynoter photo by SEAN KINNEYNaval Air Station Key West trains military aviators from around the country and runs an average of 47,500 flight operations each year.Each take off or landing is considered an individual operation.City eyes 5 percent tax increase in 2013In the run up to two public budget and millage rate hearings set for September, the Key West City Commission on Tuesday agreed to move forward with a 5 percent tax increase. Before the spending and tax plans for fiscal year 2012-13 take effect Oct. 1, commissioners must have the two public input sessions; those are set for Sept. 6 and Sept. 18, both beginning at 6 p.m. at Old City Hall on Greene Street. The tax rate as proposed is $3.004 per $1,000 of assessed home value. For the owner of a $300,000 home, that means a $901 municipal tax bill. The current adopted millage rate is $2.8627 per $1,000 of assessed home value, giving that same homeowner an $858 tax bill this year; the 5 percent hike is equivalent to a $43 tax increase on that $300,000 home. City staff proposed a budget for fiscal year 201213, beginning Oct. 1, with expenses totaling $40,425,194. Revenues, including a $9,831,515 reserve, are projected at $50,404,609. For the current budget year, expenditures totaled $39,281,310 and reserves totaled $9,731,700. Year-over-year spending is projected to increase by $1.1 million, while reserves would grow by $99,815. It costs around $110,000 per day to operate the city, meaning in the event of a disaster, the reserves could cover 89 days of operation if all revenues stopped. The budget expenses are supported by the tax increase, which would raise an additional $411,000, plus a $600,000 projected boost in parking revenue (based on an increase for street parking rates from $1.50 per hour to $2 per hour). Another new revenue source pinpointed by city staff comes from a $50 upfront application fee for submitting documents to the city's Historic Architectural Review Commission for analysis and approval; with an estimated 2,000 applications, that's another $100,000.Public hearings set Sept.6,18 at old City Hall KEY WEST the report says. The FWC board members must approve local ordinances created under the pilot program. The board can amend or overrule its staff recommendation. Monroe County officials only recently received the FWC staff report, said local Marine Resources Administrator Rich Jones. The Keys ordinance also designates managed anchoring zones in the Lower Keys at Boca Chica Basin, Cow Key Channel and Key West Harbor; and in Marathon's Boot Key Harbor and Sister Creek. "Monroe County did something unique" by requiring proof of monthly sewage pumpouts for boats in the managed zones, FWC staff noted. Aphoto used in the state report to illustrate septic problems shows a toilet seat positioned over an open hole in a boat's deck, with ocean water visible below. Monroe County rules also would bar boats from the managed areas if they "exhibit pre-derelict vessel conditions" such as being unable to navigate, or appear to be in imminent danger of sinking. Of 39 comments received by the FWC on the Monroe County anchoring law, 18 were logged as "negative" with 12 being "positive." The remaining comments were considered offtopic or apparently based on a misunderstanding of the proposal.Issue: PumpoutsFrom Anchoring,1ABy SEAN KINNEYskinney@keynoter.comBy SEAN KINNEYskinney@keynoter.com

Wednesday,August 22,2012 3A Keynoter KeysNet.com Kolhage restores hours, pay forcourt employeesIt took longer than expected, but the state Legislative Budget Commission last Thursday approved an additional $29.5 million in funding to restore office hours and jobs at clerk's offices statewide. Monroe County Clerk Danny Kolhage said his office's portion of that total is $211,000. That will restore 5 percent pay cuts for courts employees 50 of 97 total and court offices will remain open until 5 p.m. on Fridays. On July 1, Kolhage implemented pay cuts and a 3 p.m. closing time on Fridays. "We are going back to regular hours immediately," Kolhage said. "We waited several months for the [commission] to meet. We had a pretty good idea they were going to pass it, but there was a delay getting the meeting heard." Clerk budgets statewide were hit with an unexpected $31 million cut on the last day of the state Legislative session in March. The cutbacks only affected court-related positions. Kolhage's office handles various other functions, including clerk to the Monroe County Commission, government audits, public records and marriage licenses. The court employees are restored to the previous 37.5-hour full-time workweek. They had been cut back to 35.5 hours. Kolhage said the across-the-board 5 percent pay cut in Monroe will make it easier for his office to restore services. "Some clerks are going to require a transition time to rehire some of the positions that they let go. We didn't do that," he said. Kolhage said the Florida Association of Court Clerks represented local offices at the commission meeting. Three years ago, the Florida Legislature created two separate trust funds to finance the legal system and the clerk's offices. Filing fees fund them instead of each receiving money from the state's general budget. AMarch Associated Press report said clerks statewide feared the $31 million cut could lead to roughly 900 lost jobs and offices closing across the state.State budget commission ok's fundingIN THE COURTSBy RYAN MCCARTHYrmccarthy@keynoter.comrecently reported that reinspections have increased Citizens premiums by more than $130 million. Gilway said Friday that Citizens has completed about 255,000 reinspections and has 88,000 more to go. Citizens is the largest property insurer in the state, with 1.45 million policies as of July 31 and about 25,000 in the Florida Keys. Lacasa, a former MiamiDade County lawmaker, said one of the problems facing homeowners is that standards for receiving the credits have changed in recent years. The newer standards are more stringent, which has led to people losing credits during reinspections. Gilway said, for example, standards have changed for how much of a roof surface can be flat and still qualify for credits. Aflat-roofed enclosure added to a house, for example, can negate the credit given for pitchedroofs more resistant to wind damage. Another frequent issue stems from inspectors being unable to gain access to attics to check structural issues. Under the changes announced Friday, Citizens will provide free follow-up inspections for people whose credits have been removed because of a lack of access to attics. South Florida insurance agent Larry Willis, who phoned into the news conference, said disputes have even arisen from situations such as inspectors needing to go through clothing-filled closets to climb into attics. He said some inspectors won't move clothing that blocks access. Gilway said he will provide recommendations to the Citizens board next month about credit-related issues, possibly including whether the changes should apply retroactively to customers who have already lost credits. He said, however, Citizens will not retroactively return premium dollars. The Keynoter contributed to this article.88,000 inspections leftFrom Citizens,1AConch Air owner lost plane, turns to hang gliding ADecember crash into shallow water destroyed his sightseeing biplane and ended a decade-long chapter of Paul Goodwin's Conch Air firm. "I quit flying over this whole deal," Goodwin said Aug. 15. "I loved doing it but somebody is telling me to stop." Afederal law-enforcement pilot working part-time for Conch Air was at the controls of Goodwin's 1989 Waco biplane Dec. 26 when it made a crash landing on an ocean flat near Marathon High School. In late May, the National Transportation Safety Board issued a probable-case report on the crash: "The pilot did not ensure that there was sufficient fuel aboard the airplane before initiating the flight..." Pilot Alvin Reinauer was carrying two passengers while making his third aerial tour of the day from Florida Keys Marathon Airport. Reinauer told NTSB investigators that he checked fuel gauges on the wing tanks during his preflight check but apparently did not visually inspect the fuel level inside the tanks. Whether Reinauer plans to appeal the NTSB ruling could not be determined. Goodwin described Reinauer as "the most experienced pilot I ever hired" with military and commercial flying experience. The NTSB noted Reinauer's 2,494 hours of flight time, including 12 hours in a Waco biplane. All three people aboard the yellow-and-red biplane escaped without serious injury. After flying over Sombrero Lighthouse, the biplane was turning left and ascending when the engine sputtered with fuel problems. Reinauer said he determined that ditching was the safest course. In a remarkable twist, Goodwin and friend Petra Steinmetz were aboard his flats boat not far from the crash site and were the first to reach the submerged plane. "It's so bizarre but it happened," Goodwin said. "I didn't want to go too far out in case I needed to get back to the airport." An NTSB investigation concluded the biplane was mechanically "quite healthy," Goodwin said. "Everybody told me I over maintained that airplane." In the wake of the crash, relations between Goodwin and his pilot soured quickly. On Jan. 24, the anniversary of Conch Air's founding, Goodwin encountered Reinauer at the airport. "I told him that he ran out of gas. It's my 11th anniversary and you put me out of business," Goodwin said. Reinauer quickly obtained a court restraining order against Goodwin, writing in a statement that he believed Goodwin "displayed signs of pre-assault" through posture and tone of voice. Goodwin said he was at the airport Jan 26 to work on his second airplane when Reinauer arrived in a vehicle. Both men called 911. "I opened the gate to let the cops in, but I was the one who got arrested." He was held in jail overnight on a misdemeanor count of violating a restraining order. Goodwin now is seeking to have the misdemeanor count against him dropped. Conch Air remains in business, as a new hang gliding operation, launched by a towboat, at Edgewater Resort on Long Key.NTSB crash report cites hired pilotMARATHONBy KEVIN WADLOWSenior Staff Writer kwadlow@keynoter.com Keynoter photo by KEVIN WADLOWPaul Goodwin of Conch Air says the December crash of his sightseeing biplane convinced him to go into the hangliding business.

KeysNet.com Keynoter 4A Wednesday,August 22,2012 fiscal year. "We've never had an opportunity to have a public fuel dock there," Wilbarger says, calling it a "major source of revenue. Two years ago we changed to non-ethanol fuel and our sales of gasoline jumped substantially. We have highspeed, diesel pumps, which make fueling larger boats efficient. We're very confident in our number for next year." Despite her assurances, Commissioner Mark Rossi is incredulous that the bight sells more than $10,000 per day in fuel and dockage space. "You're telling me you're doing $10,000 a day? I find that hard to believe." Assistant City Manager Mark Finigan says the unrestricted fund balance in the bight account will be used to tackle a number of capital projects such as a $750,000 renovation of Thompson's Fish House and a $543,400 common area renovation including the addition of traffic circles at the termini of William, Margaret, Greene and Grinnell streets. Commissioners discussed the addition of the planned traffic circles. Another part of the plan calls for closing off all vehicular traffic on adjoining Lazy Way, a popular route for the Southernmost City's numerous train and trolley tours. Marina Operations Manager John Paul Castro says: "Right now you have a major problem with pedestrians and vehicles on Lazy Way. It just takes the congestion out of that area. People are nearly getting hit every single day."Traffic circle, pedestrian way comingFrom Budget,1A Keynoter photo by SEAN KINNEYA view down Lazy Way at the Key West Bight,shows the narrow street filled with pedestrians.The Key West City Commission is considering closing the street to vehicular traffic.Commission postpones Safe HarborvoteSTOCK ISLAND GRASSY KEY Buy a new Yamaha Four Stroke Outboard now, and receive 5 Years of Warranty Protection When you buy your new Yamaha at the Upper and Middle Keys only factory authorized Yamaha Repower Centers you will receive two years of extended warranty for ve years total at no additional cost.

ENGI146A Sales tax referendum will allow paying down debtCustomers in the Key Largo Wastewater Treatment District should be feeling a lot better about the district receiving its share of an existing 1-cent infrastructure sales tax that Monroe County is attempting to renew through 2033. The County Commission held three public hearings up and down the Keys before giving final approval last month to a November referendum that would extend the tax through 2033. It's been in place since 1989 and is set to expire in 2018. But Key Largo Wastewater district board members, who formed their own governmental entity to sewer the Upper Keys, were concerned with language that precluded using any tax revenue to pay down already incurred debt. On Aug. 15, county commissioners eased those concerns by unanimously approving a public hearing to amend the existing law to include enabling language. Treatment District board member Charlie Brooks lauded the county's efforts to include language that makes it clear paying down debt is allowed. "As a board representing the rate payers, who've incurred a large debt, we have concern," he said. "It's mostly about receiving a fair percentage we can apply to the debt we incurred in Key Largo. We've had commitments form the county that please us." But voters first have to approve the measure in November. Should the referendum fail, the county would be faced with an enormous roadblock for its planned $156 million Cudjoe Regional sewer system. County officials have voiced concern that residents could believe the tax is a new one. Administrator Roman Gastesi has said he refers to the referendum as a "time extension" to make it even more clear to residents. According to Gastesi, non-residents contribute at least 50 cents toward the tax for every 50 cents that Keys residents pay into it. State law prohibits governments from spending money to campaign for a tax, but the county plans on speaking with local groups and possibly visiting local municipality government meetings. In other business Aug. 15, the commission: The commission approved staff rankings for local projects applying for fiscal year 2016 funding through the state Department of Transportation. According to county documents, there's around $4 million available in 2016 through the Transportation Enhancement Program for alternative (bicycle or pedestrian) transportation facilities between Miami-Dade and Monroe counties. Aproject to revamp the bike path running along Aviation Boulevard, behind the county-owned Florida Keys Marathon Airport, in Marathon ranked first. The City Council in June authorized staff to apply for a DOTgrant of up to $2 million to do the work. The city would be obligated to provide a $35,000 match. The Aviation project was followed closely by a pedestrian bridge project in Key Largo, Atlantic Boulevard realignment project and a project to refurbish or replace the ramp leading to Pigeon Key from the old Seven Mile Bridge. The Commission finalized an agreement to house two full-time Monroe County Fire Rescue firefighter/paramedics at the Sugarloaf Volunteer Fire Department. The career firefighters are at the formerly all-volunteer department near mile marker 17 from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. on weekdays. The county does not pay to use the property, which is owned by the department. The county and the department's board of directors agreed to the plan last month after they found there was a shortage of available volunteers to respond to a fire.County agrees to hold a new public hearing MONROE COUNTY By RYAN MCCARTHYrmccarthy@keynoter.com D Five airlifted to Miami after crashAsingle-car crash on Grassy Key Sunday morning resulted in the driver and four passengers being airlifted to Ryder Trauma Center in Miami. According to a Florida Highway patrol report, a 2012 Chrysler driven by 24year-old Newark, Del., resident Sizhu Xiao was traveling north near mile marker 59.7 around 9 a.m. Sunday. For unknown reasons, Xiao reportedly veered onto the shoulder of the road and the vehicle struck a concrete utility pole. The car rotated counter-clockwise and wound up against the tree line, according to the report. Also in the car were 25year-old Oklahoma City, Okla., resident Sisi Liu; La Jolla, Calif., residents Enfeng Zhang, 24, and Di Wu, 26; and Wan Ruyi, 26. Ruyi's address is listed as unknown. According to Monroe County Sheriff's Office spokeswoman Becky Herrin, the county's TraumaStar helicopter transported two of the passengers to Miami; LifeNet transported two, and Air Rescue South transported another.

Robbie's Safe Harbor Marine Enterprises Inc. and Safe Harbor Enterprises Inc. have been included in the CBRS since 1990. It was enacted by the U.S. Congress to protect undeveloped coastal barriers and resources. Commissioners said several Lower Keys residents requested the postponement because the hearing was being held Aug. 15 in Key Largo. It will now be heard Sept. 10 at the Marathon Government Center. The CBRS item although not new came up while county staff reviews a future land use map amendment being requested by the Safe Harbor Property Owners Association. Robbie's and Safe Harbor Enterprises are two of a dozen business members in the association. Inclusion in the CBRS doesn't preclude development, but does prevent properties from securing a low-cost National Flood Insurance Program policy, among other things. The Sept. 10 hearing will still be in time for U.S. Rep. Ileana RosLehtinen to support it during this year's Congressional session, according to the Safe Harbor Association. Removal from the CBRS requires federal legislation. The association is attempting to secure a land-use map amendment from the county to change from industrial to mixeduse commercial zoning. It could allow for more diverse commercial activity. The only association member pursuing development is Longstock II LLC, formerly New Stock Island Properties. New Stock Island was denied approval in 2009 to build a 300-plus room resort on Safe Harbor. Association attorney Bart Smith says Longstock's plan now is to redevelop two large piers on its property to "bring more vessels into Safe Harbor." There's also the possibility of a smaller hotel, he said.Business group seeks exemption from fed barriersBy RYAN MCCARTHYrmccarthy@keynoter.com KEYSNET.COM

D Annexation vote postponed fora yearThe Key West City Commission has rescinded an Aug. 7 vote that would have let voters decide whether to empower a commission supermajority to acquire or annex property. As it stands, acquisition or annexation is decided via a citywide referendum; the change would have asked voters to give up that power. Mayor Craig Cates called for a special Aug. 15 meeting to rescind the earlier vote, effectively removing the question from the Nov. 6 ballot, and to discuss how to bring the two items back for action. Commissioner Tony Yaniz pointed out that, once the items are brought before the commission for a vote, superseding Florida law which removes the need for voter-approval of annexation, regardless of city charter language should be included. "For us to go back in here and add language ... to allow the voters of the city of Key West to vote on a voluntary annexation when it clearly violates Florida law," Yaniz said, "is kind of like beating your head against the wall." "The last thing I want to do is get in a legal battle with the state of Florida." City Attorney Shawn Smith concurred with that analysis and noted that a new ordinance could not be adopted during the special session, only the previous vote rescinded. That pushes voter approval to October 2013. Cates says voters would likely give a supermajority of commissioners-five out of seven-the ability to purchase property. During the public comment period, Sloan Bashinsky characterized the supermajority provision as needed to "reduce the inevitable politics that usually come up. You have a better chance to defend against it." Commissioners unanimously rescinded their previous vote.Commission walks back earlier referendum vote KEY WESTTropical Storm forecastTropical Storm Isaac became this storm season's ninth named storm Tuesday afternoon, and the first to pose a real threat to potentially make landfall somewhere in the Keys. The large system, with winds of 35 mph, was moving west and many of the Leeward Islands were under tropical storm watches and warnings. Forecasters at The National Hurricane Center expect the system to reach hurricane strength by Thursday as it approaches Puerto Rico. Bill South, a meteorologist with the National Hurricane Center in Key West, told the Keynoter that the storm was situated 1,950 miles east/southeast of the Keys as of early Tuesday afternoon. "It's moving to the west at around 20 mph," he said. "We're expecting that type of motion for the next few days." Ahurricane hunter sent to investigate the storm Tuesday afternoon found it has sustained winds of at least 39 mph, the threshold for tropical storm classification. South said the "120-hour" forecast, which would be Sunday morning, has it very close to the southeast tip of Cuba. "Forecasts move in a westward direction the next couple days. This upcoming weekend we expect it to turn to the northwest, which would push it to the Keys. Unless there's a major change to the path, the cone will cover the Keys by this afternoon or by tonight," South said Tuesday. "This is the first threat to the Keys this year. It varies, usually we get a tropical cyclone through here once every other year," South said. "This has the potential to be a hurricane if it doesn't interact with land masses in the Caribbean." In addition, South said the forecast is "better than 50 percent" chance Isaac will strengthen into a hurricane at some point. "After that the forecast will depend on its interaction with Haiti, the Dominican Republic and eastern Cuba. That's some mountainous terrain that would let the storm become more disorganized," he said. South said the Weather Service is encouraging residents and tourists alike to be prepared for a wet weekend. Wet weather for for weekend appears likelyWEATHERCity falls well short on recycling goalsBased on a solid waste study commissioned in 2010 and released this week, the City of Key West is woefully behind in meeting state-mandated recycling goals. Tampa-based Kessler Consulting reported that Key West residents, in conjunction with private construction and demolition disposal companies, recycled only 10 percent of the 59,000 tons of solid waste produced in fiscal year 2010-11. From consultant Mitch Kessler's summary, that amount of waste is "enough to fill a Conch Tour Train stretching the entire length of the Florida Keys." The Key West City Commission, which approved the $379,000 analysis, will receive a presentation of the findings and associated recommendations at a special meeting set for Aug. 29, beginning at 6 p.m. at Old City Hall in Key West. In 2008 the Florida Legislature increased statewide recycling goals for counties and municipalities from a rate of 35 percent to 75 percent by 2020; interim goals are 40 percent by 2012, 50 percent by 2014, 60 percent by 2016 and 70 percent by 2018. As for specific recommendations, Kessler suggests making recycling easier for residents by providing wheeled recycling bins, as opposed to the customary green box. Although the recycling rate has lingered below the 10 percent mark, there's plenty of room for improvement: Kessler's research indicates 71 percent of the city's waste stream comprises recyclables and compostables including yard waste that could be diverted from landfills or waste-to-energy processing. Kessler tackles the yard waste piece by pushing for a transition to what's called 1-1-1 pickup. That would see three weekly pickups, one each for garbage, recycling and yard waste. The current pickup schedule, undertaken via a $2.4 million annual contract with industry giant Waste Management, is twice weekly for trash and once for recycling. Another goal is to identify and set up a site for composting in the Lower Keys, which would further reduce the amount of waste being hauled to mainland waste-to-energy plants. City Utility Manager Jay Gewin says: "Agreat amount of time and effort have been spent to develop these recommendations. It is unreasonable to expect any changes to the city's current...recycling rate without implementing changes."

Police arrested Timothy Lee Smith, 47, Melinda Joiner, 48, after receiving complaints from six Upper Keys businesses. According to police, the pair solicited ads to be printed on pizza boxes, using a sample box and a contract for each business. Checks were collected up front, investigators said, and then no goods were delivered. The checks were written to Joiner. Detective Yunier Galvez worked with the Okeechobee Sheriff's Office on the case. Police say Joiner "admitted to taking money from the businesses and spending it on hotels, restaurants and other personal expenses; she admitted to never producting the advertisements the businesses paid for." Smith is in custody in Sarasota, Fl. and will be returned to the Keys. He faces six counts of grand theft and six counts of fraud. Joiner was arrested in Texas earlier this month and was returned to the Keys. She faces the same charges. Detective Galvez is asking anyone with more information about the case to contact the Monroe County Sheriff's Office or Key West Police.Police arrest pair on pizza box ad scam UPPER KEYS By SEAN KINNEYskinney@keynoter.com KEYSNET.COM By SEAN KINNEYskinney@keynoter.comBy RYAN MCCARTHYrmccarthy@keynoter.com

EDITORIALCorruption cases must be priorityLETTERS TO THE EDITORSave the LaundromatDo we need a Laundromat in Marathon? Does that strike you as a nobrainer? Yes? Me too. But the possibility ours will close is all too real.There used to be several Laundromats in Marathon, and at least one of them closed in Old Town mostly because the state mandate on sewers was going to cost too much. Now there is one public Laundromat left in town at U.S. 1 and 60th Street bayside. The proprietor of that business is fast approaching the decision whether to remain open or close the doors of her business.Donna Farmer went before the City Council at its Aug. 14 meeting and told of the dilemma she faces handling the large increase in monthly expenses that are about to crush her business. On March 19, the city assigned the Laundromat 31.7 equivalent dwelling units, which increases the monthly cost of operations by $1,206. That plus a $690 base charge and connection fees that will add more than $450 per month will close the Laundromat. Dropping those costs 50 percent will not change the result.What Ms. Farmer is asking for is a separate category for a public Laundromat and an assignment of one EDU. This would knock the assessment and base charges way down; per-gallon use charges and connection costs would remain. She did not invent this concept.The Key Largo Wastewater Treatment District wrestled with this same problem, and came up with the one EDU solution. Other cities across the nation have implemented similar solutions.Losing your Laundromat is not just an inconvenience. It impacts rental agents, residents, tourists in guest accommodations, campgrounds and people who live and work here. Once it is gone, be aware that it is no easy matter to get it back due to new environmental laws and impact fees. Farmer will meet with city staff again, providing extra detail on the current operations, to be certain that the severity of the situation is understood. She will return to the City Council on Aug. 28 or as soon as possible to hear the verdict on her request. This is our town and she needs our help. If you agree that this serves the public good and must remain a viable operation, please phone or e-mail City Council members and let them know how you feel. Their contact information is on the city website. This decision is ours to make. Marilyn Tempest MarathonOut of AfghanistanI am an honorably discharged veteran of the U.S. Navy. I am also a father who has lost two daughters (not service-connected) and until one has been a parent who has lost a child, you cannot understand there is no loss of equal measure.It is time to stand up and be counted on this issue. The government will not act if the silent majority does not rise up and demand action.We lost some 58,000 children (yes, they had been adults but they had parents) needlessly in Vietnam in a war we could not and did not win. Evidently our president has not learned that lesson. He sets a political departure time of 2014 for the military to leave Afghanistan.Last week three marines were ambushed and killed by an Afghanistan citizen. Then seven U.S. military men were killed when their helicopter was shot down. The commanding general said these losses are acceptable considering that we have 33,000 troops in country and the secretary of defense supports him.Enough is enough. We need to get out of Afghanistan today, not in two years. This is a repeat of Vietnam and not worth the price of one more American Life.You have a choice to either play the political game with the rest of the politicians and stay silent, or use the influence of the silent majority and let your friends, neighbors, the media and in particular your elected political leaders understand that enough is enough. Our presidential candidates rant and rave about renewable energy, but one thing is not renewable. That is the needless loss of a child by a parent. So I say challenge your elected officials to answer the parent's first question: Why? We cannot and will not win this Vietnam-type war. Howard Gelbman Key LargoGUEST COLUMNResponsible journalism is expected to be balanced in its reporting. In our opinion, your recent article about Imagine07 and the old Seven Mile Bridge designs and ensuing editorial were not, adding negative fuel to an unnecessary fire. You failed to take into consideration:The hard work of Friends of Old Seven. One year old this month, we are proud of the tremendous amount of positive work in fulfillment of our mission to restore and enhance the old Seven Mile Bridge.The dedication of our volunteers who, fueled by passion for by Old Seven, gave thousands of hours without any compensation. Whether from the Keys or from faraway, all unpaid, they poured their soul and energy into something they strongly believe in.The title, Imagine07, says it all about our intent: To imagine what the bridge and surrounding areas could look like in the eyes and unspoiled minds of bright, well-trained graduate architecture students. We specifically instructed them not be limited by practical considerations, as those will come into play when we cherry-pick the best concepts by the students and others and put together our own, realistic master plan.Successful restoration projects like New York's Highline and the Walkway Over the Hudson, St. Augustine's Bridge of Lions and Miami Marine Stadium used design charrettes similar to Imagine07 as a crucible for creative, unbound ideas that were eventually integrated into unified, realistic design alternatives. They were similarly criticized as unrealistic/wasteful pie in the sky.Yet, now implemented into highly acclaimed successes, they are now acclaimed visionaries. For example, the Highline attracts more than 3 million visitors annually, becoming a major urban rehabilitation force in lower Manhattan, with hotels, boutiques and high-end restaurants vigorously supporting an amazing, worldclass asset. All of them are recipients of multimillion-dollar grants and donations by large foundations, individuals and public entities.Your article and editorial failed to seek opinions of reputable engineers, architects, historians and environmental professionals serving on our Technical Advisory Committee. These experts provided the Florida International University students and faculty with background information, guidance and feedback, and then sat as jury in a serious rating of the students work. Concurrently, they gave Friends of Old Seven extremely valuable insights into what a realistic project should look like. They did this as unpaid volunteers. We have unfailingly responded to your newspaper's requests for interviews with fair and timely responses. We would have been happy to sit with reporter Ryan McCarthy to cover the true nature of the event and its underlying planning process, but were never asked. I was reachable throughout the event and expected to provide as much information required to give fair treatment of this project.You chose to publish the story without our input. Had you asked for it, you would have found out that Friends of Old Seven, working together with Technical Advisory Committee members and other dedicated volunteers with varied technical and professional backgrounds, is putting together a cost-effective approach incorporating solid design concepts supported by 3-D computer models, enhanced by many gold nuggets presented by FIU students.The design and financing options of this plan, when implemented, will guarantee the restoration and proper long-term maintenance of the old Seven Mile Bridge and adjoining areas into an integrated park, open-air museum and cultural facility available 24/7 to visitors and the community, whether walkers, bikers or guests visiting the railroad that went to sea and Pigeon Key into its second century. We have presented a preliminary conceptual plan to individual members of the Monroe County Commission and staff, top state Department of Transportation decision-makers and other community leaders. All reacted very positively to these preliminary proposals. We are now readying a full, enhanced presentation to the entire County Commission at its Sept. 19 meeting in Marathon.As we welcome fair and balanced reporting, we trust that you will report accurately on these plans. We are convinced you will find them quite realistic.The $5,000 spent by Monroe County, $2,500 spent by Friends of Old Seven from its own budget, $3,600 in in-kind contributions by local businesses and thousands more spent by FIU in faculty time, materials and computer resources is money well spent, returning, in the future, many times over the initial investment.As the responsible entity leading a joint public-private partnership to save the Eighth Wonder of the World, Friends of Old Seven is confident of our eventual success. Our project will bring world-class acclaim to Marathon and to entire Florida Keys, with the attendant economic benefits of a much larger number of international, national and regional visitors using our area hotels, restaurants and other attractions, and enjoying our newly created park facilities alongside our local community. We wish to thank FIU's School of Architecture and the Arts and the students and faculty for their wonderfully visionary efforts, without which we would not have progressed as far as we have.Bernard Spinrad is president of Friends of Old Seven, a member of the Tourism Development Council's District 3 advisory committee and a board member of the Florida Keys Scenic Highway Alliance. He's a retired economic and tourism consultant.State Attorney Ward stepped on toes, and it cost him re-election in the processSometimes, doing the right thing can cost you your job. That's the case with Dennis Ward, the Keys state attorney who lost the Aug. 14 Democratic primary to former prosecutor Catherine Vogel. Vogel defeated Ward 52.76 percent to 47.24 percent, with Key West largely responsible for Vogel's victory. In the Southernmost City, she garnered 484 votes more than Ward. Countywide, she won by 344 votes.Ward ran on his record of pursuing public corruption something at which he has been good the past three and a half years, unlike predecessors before him. Just consider:Monique and Randy Acevedo, sentenced to eight years in prison and three years probation respectively for Monique's theft of more than $400,000 from the Monroe County School District.Bill Langstaff, former Mosquito Control Board member who admitted homestead exemption fraud.Joan Lord-Papy, Mosquito Control Board member who admitted violating the state's Sunshine Law governing open government.Mike Spoto, former Mosquito Control superintendent who admitted stealing cell phones from the district for his family and friends'personal use.Norma Jean Sawyer, doing two years in state prison for stealing public money through her directorship of the Bahama Conch Community Land Trust.Lisa Druckemiller, charged with felony theft and scheme to defraud in the case of 52 iPads and iPhones discovered missing during her tenure as county Technical Services director. That's a pretty good record of rooting out corruption in a county that has seen few, if any, such prosecutions since the bubba-drug busts of the 1970s and 1980s and those were done by the feds. It's not just public corruption Ward's targeted. His office prosecuted or is prosecuting at least three cases involving prominent families. Ward says that's what cost him the election prosecuting no matter who is involved when there is cause to press forward on a case, ticking off a tight Key West community in the process. He's likely correct. Vogel is now running against Mark Kohl, a Republican who served as state attorney for eight years before Ward defeated him in 2008. Our hope is Vogel or Kohl, should he win will follow Ward's lead and put a focus on public corruption and prosecuting crime wherever it's evident, and not kowtow to sweetheart deals from the well-connected.That's our hope because this county isn't all squeaky clean. The real test comes after the next state attorney takes office and the public can judge how serious our chief prosecutor will be about cleaning up public corruption.Visions for old Seven Mile Bridge are usefulKeynoter photo by RYAN McCARTHYThe FIU students'visions of what the old Seven Mile Bridge and Pigeon Key could look like were unveiled Aug.2 at the Marathon Government Center.

LETTERS TO THE EDITORShow the poor compassionIt's easy to single out those less fortunate such as Dannie Miller did in a letter to the editor Aug. 16.Regarding the issue of electronic benefit transfer card balances, it seems some of the poor would like Winn-Dixie or perhaps Publix to check their balances without making a purchase. Dannie Miller defends the stores and states the poor person should take responsibility for his or her balance and go online to do so.I know three homeless who have no computer access, patronize both grocery stores year in and year out making purchases and are good customers, and do what work they can find on a daily basis. These stores get many requests from consumers for all kinds of things, nice attractive breaks from local governments to open up units and do many things to be good community citizens. But this policy smacks of kicking a person when he or she is down, so to speak. The poor and homeless are a fact of life. We know many who don't think so and wish these poor folks and homeless would go away. Pretty sad for all those who have a good life.It reminds me of a few years back up in Virginia when my mother asked our weekly housekeeper to drive to the market to buy some items. Off she went in mom's Cadillac. When she returned, she was crying about a woman who accosted her for using food stamps and having a Cadillac. The story goes on. Listening to talk radio over the years, I have heard this story from time to time from the various goons who call into the stations.These people come across as selfish and stingy and care about themselves more than those less fortunate. It seems that somewhere in their minds, they think acting against the poor is something good for the community and a feel-good thing for them. It looks like the next set of attacks will be the sick. I feel it's sad but true that as time rolls on, down the road our society will become even more selfish and stingy, build more gated villages, refuse more assistance to those less fortunate and even try to keep them from voting and living within a neighborhood. I wonder if they are really saying these people are not Americans because they are poor. I don't think this is what this country was built on nor what made it great. Frank Simmons Delray Beach

The grand opening is scheduled for 9 p.m. Sept. 12 at the new bar at 218 Duval St. The general public is invited. "This is going to be a fun bar," chain founder Lil Lovell said. "I like the uniqueness of Key West and its residents. I definitely see local residents, as well as tourists, having a lot of fun in our Key West bar." Prospective employees can apply at the bar on Saturday and Sunday from noon to 5 p.m. Those applying you have to be 21 or older should be "talented, sexy and witty." The bartenders at Coyote Ugly serve a little bit of attitude with the drinks and are known for their dance routines on top of the bar. Lovell opened the first Coyote Ugly Saloon in New York's East Village in 1993. In 2000, the movie "Coyote Ugly," which was based on the New York Coyote Ugly Saloon, was released. Today, there are 18 locations worldwide. Those applying should not wear open-toed shoes or heels. Preferred are cowboy boots, work boots, motorcycle boots and the like.Applicants are welcome this weekendPRNewswireKEY WEST BusinessKOAcelebrates 50 yearsIn days mostly past, a camper would walk into the wilderness, pitch a canvas pup tent and catch a string of trout for dinner. In today's era, some families pull into campgrounds in 40-foot custom RVs costing $1 million or more, pulling a trailer packed with fourwheelers. They go camping expecting all the comforts of home: Astore, a pool, bike rentals, outdoor movies on giant inflatable screens, pancake breakfasts and especially wireless Internet access so they can communicate with their Facebook friends via smartphones, play stations and laptops. These two camping experiences share, well, mostly a campfire.Kampgrounds of America, a company born in Billings, Mont., 50 years ago, has grown into the nation's largest franchise camping business. It has survived by adapting and catering to cultural trends."What's true of human nature, from my perspective, is the more you give people, the more they want," said KOAPresident Pat Hittmeier.KOAis celebrating its 50th anniversary this summer, marking the growth from a handful of campsites south of the Yellowstone River to 458 franchises, plus 26 companyowned campgrounds.There is one KOAin the Florida Keys, on Sugarloaf Key around mile marker 17 oceanside. It has, among other things, a full-service marina, Wi-Fi, cable TV, a pool and hot tub, bike rentals and dog park.In 1962, Billings businessmen Dave Drum and John Wallace and two partners saw a chance to make money by catching and releasing some of the tourists driving by to the World Fair, whose trademark Space Needle still defines Seattle's skyline.Billings had no campgrounds, and city officials worried about people camping in the parks paid to run city utilities down Garden Avenue to KOA's first campground. The partners guessed right. U.S. 10 became Interstate 90 and their first campground was located close to that commercial lifeline crossing Montana. Drum was the visionary and Wallace helped finance the concept. But, running and building the business was largely accomplished by chief executive Darrell Booth, who died of cancer in 1980, according to KOAarchivist Jim Graff of Billings.Over half a century, KOA has grown into a multimillion-dollar business owned by New York City billionaire Oscar Tang, who bought KOAafter the 1979 oil crisis tanked the stock price. "It was a very attractively priced asset," Tang said. Tang has no plans to sell the company, but he wants to build a corporate headquarters someday on land KOA bought along Zoo Drive and move out of TransWestern III in downtown Billings. "It's a good financial business, and it's the only national chain of campgrounds in the country," Tang said. "That makes it attractive."OpportunityTwin oil crises in the 1970s left KOAwith the largest national footprint, some 900 campgrounds, and that helped it survive after fuel prices made recreational vehicles look like "they were destined to be dinosaurs," Tang wrote in 2002. In the days of rapid expansion, farmers would buy a franchise, slap up KOA's iconic A-frame building on some cropland and open what was nicknamed "dirt motel by the highway."Since that peak in the 1980s, KOAhas sold off campgrounds and focused on improving the quality of the properties, including amenities and activities, so that families will return more often and stay longer. Today, only about 100 out of 484 campgrounds are still mostly onenight stops, Hittmeier said.Many KOAs offer a less expensive place to stay in some prime tourist destinations like Cape Cod, the Florida Keys and Highway 1 along the Pacific Coast in California. The largest in Orlando would make a town in Montana, with 900 camping sites and a river running through it. The way Americans vacation has also changed, said Mike Gast, KOAvice president of communications. With both parents working and kids locked into summer activities, more families take extended weekend vacations closer to home."Nobody takes a two-week vacation anymore. They're time starved," Gast said.BrandingAHarris Poll conducted last year asked people if they had ever stayed at a KOAand 25 percent said they had, which is strong brand recognition, Gast said. One of the changes at KOAis the addition of cabins, including deluxe cabins, for people who want the comforts of home without pulling an RVaround. People want to play, then shower and have a real bed to sleep on. The main draw of camping remains the people factor, Gast said. Campers choosing KOA over a motel want a taste of small-town America where the kids play unsupervised and strangers can still enjoy camaraderie around a campfire, he said. "When you go and knock at the door at the Super 8 to introduce yourself to a neighbor, they call the cops," Gast said. "It depends on what experience you're after."Sugarloaf site is one of 484 crossing U.S.By JAN FALSTADBillings GazetteTOURISM The Sugarloaf KOA's marina (above) has all the provisions you need.It's not camping without enjoying an evening around the fire roasting marshmallows.Photos from SUGARLOAF KOA WEBSITE W e  r e M o v i n g O c t 1 s tNew location in Town Square Mall 11400 O/S Hwy.

"Addy understands what we're doing so we'll throw more out to the perimeter." The Hurricanes return a highly experienced group of runners back from last year's 5-5 campaign, led by hardcharging fullback Kodi Roberts, a 190-pound senior. The Canes are deep at halfback with senior Jimmy Rhyne, junior Eddie Dunn and sophomores Henry Jacobsen and George Jacobsen. Logan Rowe, a sophomore transfer from Michigan who drew coaches'notice at his first day of practice, will work with Roberts at fullback.Alberto Anderson, a 6foot-2 wideout, and sophomore tight end Shane Saenger start at the receiving spots Friday.On the line, junior Jake Niedbalski gets the starting nod at center so veteran snapper Benny Cosme can move to guard.

"We missed our Kickoff Classic last year and it hurt us. We have to play it like a real game and see what works," he said. The Dolphins enter the season with a 30-player roster that Martin said is comparable to other teams in the newly formed South Florida Football Conference it will play in this season. The Dolphins (2-8 last season) were one of five District 16-3Ateams to drop out because of a lack of parity. The district was frontloaded with state powers like University School and Hollywood-Chaminade Prep. Keys rival Coral Shores High School is among 14 South Florida football programs to join the conference.First chance to see team's new offenseBy RYAN McCARTHYrmccarthy@keynoter.comMARATHON FOOTBALLConchs play Cardinal GibbonsWith a new coach and offensive system, the 2012 Key West High School football team will play Cardinal Gibbons, of Fort Lauderdale, in the annual preseason game Thursday night. Kickoff is at 7:30 at Tommy Roberts Memorial Stadium. "Winning this game is not the main goal," said coach Johnny Hughes, who took over for his uncle, Jerry Hughes, who resigned after four seasons and a 22-15 record. "The main goals are to come out injury-free and have sharper execution." The Conchs will use a triple-option offense that will be guided by senior quarterback Donald Roberts. Elliott Valdez will be at fullback and Deonte Stemage, Jeffrey Anilus, Norman Lopez and Dorian Cannon will share the two wing positions.The new offense was introduced in the spring and has been a work in progress. "We always want to be further along with it than we were the previous day," Hughes said.Cardinal Gibbons, coached for the 14th year in a row by Mike Morrill, is coming off an 8-3 season that ended with a 55-0 first-round playoff loss to Norland (a Miami powerhouse that, with Miami Jackson, is in the Conchs'three-team district).Triple-option offense will get 1st testBy DICK WAGNERKeynoter ContributorKEY WEST FOOTBALLMoeller takes on golf team challengeJohn Moeller has been named golf coach at Key West High School, succeeding George Twyman, who stepped down after three seasons. Moeller, 62, is the Conch boys tennis coach and the former head wrestling coach. He now assists wrestling coach Chaz Jimenez. This is Moeller's first foray into golf, a sport he plays perhaps four times a year. Asked what his best effort for 18 holes is, he laughed and said, "Agood bowling score." Moeller was at the Key West Golf Club on Monday, getting briefed by Twyman, who will help out at practices and at the team's lone home match (Sept. 8 with Marathon and Gulliver Prep). Moeller said he has also sought advice from Nora Laubenstein, a former Conch golf coach. Twyman said he steppedTennis coach expands duties to the linksBy DICK WAGNERKeynoter ContributorKEY WEST GOLFSnapper are main target for anglers on the reefThe most consistent fishery right now is snapper on the reef. The largest of the yellowtails are in 60 to 80 feet of water, while the patch reefs in the 20to 30-foot depths are holding the majority of the mangroves. And, dropping on the wrecks is producing the occasional mutton along with medium-size amberjack. The strongest bite occurs from sunrise to about 10 o'clock and then a couple of hours before sunset until dark. Agood strategy these days is stay topside for reef/wreck fishing early in the day and, when the bite slows or stops, take the plunge for some lobster hunting. As for dolphin fishing, persistence pays off, as the bite varies drastically from day to day. Most of the schools are being found under birds, weed lines and floaters. If you find a group of short fish (under 20 inches to the fork), it's best to move on to the next one. Eventually you'llBest results: fish early or just before sunsetFISHING THE FLORIDA KEYS Chris Johnson Captain'sColumn See Fishing,2BSee Golf,2BSee Conchs,2BSee Dolphins,2BSee Hurricanes,2B Tom,from Jacksonville,shows off his 25-inch mangrove snaper,caught on the patch reefs off Marathon with Capt.Dallas Tisdale.

find a school of fish that are legal size and better. Most Captains report what's happening is numbers of dolphin follow a hooked comrade to the boat and they catch five or six before the bite stops. Rather than continue to throw baits, they pull away from the fish and troll back through them with either ballyhoo or lures to get them fired up again.By using this tactic, it may take a little longer to fill the cooler, but it will improve your catch ratio substantially.If it's tuna you're after, the blackfin bite at the humps has also been sporadic, with the fish averaging 8 to 10 pounds.Increasing numbers of mangroves are moving back into the bay from their spawn on the reef, and this fishery improves with each passing week. In the Middle Keys, the trout are biting on the grass banks. Keep your eye on the weather this weekend as there's a tropical system most likely headed to South Florida. Use good judgment about getting out on the water. It will still be there after the fact.Week's best Capt. Dallas Tisdale gave Tom and Guy, from Jacksonville, a lesson in Patch Reef Fishing 101 off Marathon. They caught plenty of cero mackerel, jacks and smaller but legal snapper, but Tom's 25-inch mangrove and Guy's 22-inch red were the main attraction. Chunk baits of fresh, live ballyhoo on light leaders were the ticket for the bigger mangroves.Mike and Sue Lockett, from St. Petersburg, had a fun couple of days fishing with guide Neil Apley during their stay at Captain Pip's Marina and Hideaway in Marathon. They caught a mess of mangrove, yellowtail and mutton snapper. Capt. Jeff Shelar, of Catch-Em-All Charters at Captain Pip's, reports lots of nice yellowtails and mangroves on the patches with a few hogfish here and there and great action with fun fish such as jacks and runners. In the Gulf, his anglers caught sharks, mangroves, undersize cobia, big jacks and a few permit. Last week, the SeaSquared crew did a lot of snapper fishing on the reef with groups from Florida, North Carolina and Pennsylvania. We also took families from Indiana and Florida to Florida Bay for exciting catch-and-release shark fishing. Capt. Moe Mottice, of Moe's Custom Charters in Key West, is back from vacation and got in some Gulf wreck fishing for cobia, snapper and sharks, with a 40-pound kingfish and Goliath grouper mixed in. In Key West Harbor, the tarpon bit, although not hot and heavy, along with nice mangroves and cero mackerel. And, on the reef south of Sand Key, the yellowtail snapper responded nicely to cut squid and bonito chunks.Casting ContestCapt.

The contest runs from 6 to 8 pm, and will benefit the Marathon High School Maritime Scholarship.Capt.

The Canes must replace two valued veterans on the front wall. Tyler Smith likely will miss about half the season with a leg injury, and Tom Johnson moved out of state shortly before the start of school. Afew other players who started the spring game also are not on the roster. "Learning to deal with adversity is part of football," Holly said. "The next guys have to step up. We've had a couple weeks to prepare for it." On defense, senior speed rusher Terrill Taylor and Ismer will guard the edges. Inside at tackle will be Omar Tomas and Randy Smith, a transfer. Senior Henry Rroshi and Anderson start at outside linebacker. Roberts, Dunn and Lowe rotate in at the two inside-linebacker spots. Defensive backs include junior Paul Pauchey and Rhyne at cornerback, and Duma-Kenny at free safety. Pauchey will be the placekicker and punter. "Our main goals Friday will be to compete and emphasize the system," Holly said. "We'll be looking for execution. We want to play as many people as possible so we can see them on film."The first game of the regular season will be 7:30 p.m. Aug. 31, at home against Solid Rock Christian, a new program at a Miami-Dade charter school.Coral Shores competes in the inaugural season of the South Florida Football Conference this fall.Look for execution'From Hurricanes,1B Martin said the Dolphins have had enough of hitting one another and are looking forward to some real competition. "Toward the end of the second week, they get on one another's nerves and it's good for them to focus on an opponent," he said. The Dolphins are dropping the run-heavy Wing-T offense in favor of the I-formation, thanks to a larger and more experienced group of linemen than in recent years.Martin added that the Dolphins'starters are set at every position, with junior Roberto Perez leading the way under center. Marathon will feature a committee at running back this season, with Ian Almodovar, Dominic Cavitt, Shemar Fantroy and Ciro Cammarata all getting carries.Marathon played Pope John Paul in its 2007 and 2008 kickoff classics. Martin said they have a different coach now who runs a shotgun offense that spreads out the opponent's defense. "They have really good skill kids and they try to use those kids as much as possible on offense to get them in space. They're not a between-the-tackles running team," he said. Friday's game is scheduled to begin a 7:30 p.m. at Marathon High.I formation debutsFrom Dolphins,1B The Chiefs have had seven consecutive winning seasons. Gibbons is led by speedy junior wide receiver Trevon Lee, who last season caught 31 passes for 786 yards and eight touchdowns."He will put our defense to a test real quick," said Hughes, who added that Stemage, Anilus and Laurence Marius will try to keep Lee at bay. The game will mark the return of highly regarded Conch defensive end Roberto Val, who missed most of his junior season because of injuries. The Conchs will open the regular season Aug. 31 at Miami High and play their home opener Sept. 7 against North Miami Beach.Areal test'From Conchs,1B aside because trips to mainland matches kept him from spending time with his two young sons. Moeller has long driven Conch teams by bus to outof-town events. On Aug. 30, he will drive the golf Conchs to the Biltmore Hotel course in Miami, where they will open the season against Palmer Trinity and Ransom Everglades. The Conchs will be led by junior Evan DeRoche, who has been to the state tournament two consecutive seasons. Last fall, he finished 37th out of 96 golfers at the 1Astate meet,Season opens Aug. 30From Golf,1BLook fo r mo r e defe ns e, fi n e ss eBig hits that dominated the Coral Shores volleyball attack over recent seasons will be fewer this fall, says head coach Andy Thiery. "We don't have the superstar power hitters" like graduated shotmakers Latrice Johnson and Lakelia Cooper, Thiery said after Monday's practice. "What we do have is a lot of good players who are three-sport athletes or girls who have been with our program for two or three years," he said. "It will be more of a defensive, finesse-type team, and that's fine." Coral Shores travels to Marathon High School today for two matches in the AllKeys Preseason Tournament. The Lady Canes (13-11) advanced to the state Class 4Aregionals last year after losing a five-game shootout in the District 16 championship to Gulliver Prep. That squad's front wall is gone so the focus is building a team who can take passes from second-year setter Ellie Leopold, a budding star who can "spread the wealth," Thiery said."It probably will be playing by committee with a lot of interchangeable components," Thiery said. "If somebody has an off-night, somebody else will take their spot."Iris Dunn, a soccer and track star, nationally ranked lacrosse player Julia Lozano and volleyball veteran Mallory Wiecjorek are expected to provide offense. "We always aim to reach the district championship game," Thiery said. "Even the county is going to be tough. We split with Key West last year, and Marathon will be much improved." The Lady Canes play the regular-season opener at home at 5:30 p.m. Tuesday against LaSalle, after a 4 p.m. JVstart. Chad Gardner returns as Cane JVcoach. "Our girls are working hard," Thiery said. "It's a season where every match should be fun."CORAL SHORES VOLLEYBALLBy KEVIN WADLOWSenior Staff Writer kwadlow@keynoter.comLucerne tourney targets seven speciesAone-of-a-kind event whose anglers target seven species, the Herman Lucerne Memorial Backcountry Fishing Championship is set for Sept. 21 to 23 in Islamorada.

As Lucerne did, however, they also are certain to enjoy and appreciate the beauty of the Everglades.Kickoff and registration for anglers is set for Sept. 21 at the World Wide Sportsman, mile marker 81.5 bayside. Sept. 22 and 23 are fishing days and anglers must check in at either the World Wide Sportsman or Don's Bait & Tackle in Homestead.An awards dinner is set for 6:30 p.m. Sunday at the World Wide Sportsman.
