Story, 4A Costly repairsRepair and maintenance for the old Seven Mile Bridge is $66 million over the next 30 years, state officials say. Story, 4A Schools in a cash quandarySuperintendent Mark Porters plan to use an infusion of new state money to the Monroe County School District to end unpaid sevenday staff furloughs rather than for staff raises is illegal, state officials say. That could leave the district on the hook for $1.2 million, meaning the district would have to find that money somewhere else before the end of the districts fiscal year on June 30.In September, the School Board adopted a budget for fiscal year 2012-13 with matching revenues and expenses at $84.5 million and a $6 million unassigned fund balance.Porter reluctantly agrees with the state Department of Educations stance but not with School Board member Ed Davidson calling the situation a financial crisis. The furlough program has been in place since 2011 and has saved the district $1.7 million each of the past two years. To pay to kill the program, Porter tapped $1.4 million derived from the Legislatures mandated teacher raise program to pay the lions share.Of that $1.4 million, $200,000 has gone to the Keys six public charter schools.State Department of Education spokeswoman Cheryl Etters said a furlough buyback is not consistent with the law. She added, Let me also say that the furlough buyback is not with Gov. [Rick] Scotts commitment to providing all teachers a muchdeserved pay raise.Porter acknowledged Friday there is certainly going to be an issue resulting in the need to make adjustments to our current budget.Our financial condition is still such that I cannot waiver, he said.

Story, 1B Solid-waste hauling rates likely to riseHomeowners in unincorporated Monroe County and the Marathon area could see slight rate hikes for garbage pickup over the next 10 years, according to revised offers from existing haulers. That doesnt meet the countys goal to maintain or lower the current annual rate of $404 for residences, but does trim proposed price increases originally sought by garbage franchise haulers, county Program Manager Rhonda Haag told the County Commission Wed nes day at its meeting at the Murray E. Nelson Govern ment and Cultural Center in Key Largo. If the county agrees to the revised proposals for the decade beginning next October, the $404 annual rate would increase incrementally to $457 by 2024, a 14 percent increase.That could be reduced if the county takes steps to reduce the amount of garbage being trucked to mainland waste-toenergy plants, staff said.Commissioners could decide to sign a 10-year deal with longtime haulers like Marathon Garbage Service in the Middle Keys or Keys Sanitary Service in the Upper Keys.Or the county could solicit new proposals from other firms in hopes of saving money.Bruce Williams, who manages Advanced Disposals service in Islamorada, urged commissioners to open the contracts to bid. Dont letNew contracts likely wont go to bidCOUNTY COMMISSIONBy KEVIN WADLOWSenior Staff Writer firstname.lastname@example.orgMarina purchase gets county OKThe Key Largo property known as Rowells Marina could soon officially add waterfront park to its name.Monroe County commissioners, meeting Wednesday in Key Largo, gave what appears to be final approval to buy the eight-acre site on Florida Bay for $5 million.Were going for a closing by Christmas, said County Administrator Roman Gastesi, a longtime advocate of acquiring Rowells for use as an events field and public park.Commissioners previously approved contracts for the nearly vacant land at mile marker 104.5 but they always added a provision that the deal could be canceled. Purchase backers in the audience applauded Wednes day when Commissioner Heather Carruthers voted for the buy. Carruthers vote was critical since she earlier voiced concerns about ongoing expenses for a park. Buying Rowells needed to pass on a four-fifths vote. Commissioner Danny Kolhage has maintained since summer that the countys infrastructure sales tax the source of the purchase money should be spent on what he considers more pressing needs like sewer costs and catching up with road maintenance. Wednesday, Kolhage cast the lone no vote, saying Im not going to belabor it but we have obligations that have not even been measured yet.

The owner of the deified phalanges coverings is selling them on eBay. Condition: Used. The Reporter attempted to contact the seller through his or her eBay account, to no avail. The person did provide an account of how he or she came to be the owner of the Messiahs discarded clippings. From the gripping narrative, the seller may have been better off hawking them out of a J. Peterman catalogue:While traveling through Europe, I went to see a seer, or as Americans like to call them, psychic. I stayed in Germany for a couple of months, then decided to travel.I found myself in a little border town in the Czech Republic. This short, little older woman, whom appeared to be about 150 years old, popped out of a doorway and grabbed my hand. Scared the bagebers out of me.Then she pulled me into this dilapidated doorway and said she had a gift for me. As I held out my hand and looked into her gray eyes, I noticed moles on the side of her face with hairs sticking out of them. To me, this indicated she was very, very old.Then she proceeded to tell me what they were. Well, I figured they could not be real because its not like I could get a DNA test on them. Who would I ask, God? Now, I figured I would part with them or try to sell them on my own website. Maybe they could find a good home with a curator who believes this is true.

Originally from the Conch Republic (Tavernier), he was a resident of Gainesville for the last twelve years. A plain-spoken man of simple tastes, David left the world a more beautiful place using his talents in carpentry, plastering and renovation. He fished the deep Atlantic, built barns in the Smokey mountains, and was happiest when close to nature. He loved his friends and family and helped them whenever he could. His kindness toward all animals was widely known, for he loved Gods green earth with a faithful heart. He is survived by his son John Ratey (Shannon), his brothers Mike (Dennys), Mark and Paull (Lauren), his sisters Mercedes and Carol, his aunt Leilani, his uncle Bruce, and his numerous nieces and nephews. His friends and extended family will miss him. A private memorial service for the family will be held in Gainesville. Other commission actionIn other action at Wednesdays County Commission meeting in Key Largo:Sylvia Murphy, commissioner from District 5 in the Upper Keys, was chosen among her colleagues to be county mayor for the next 12 months. Commissioner Danny Kolhage from Key West was named vice mayor. They were the only nominations.Commissioners asked the Florida Keys Aqueduct Authority to prepare more estimates on switching some neighborhood sewer systems slated for grinder pumps to gravity. After the county agreed to change three Lower Keys subdivisions at an added cost of $20 million, about six [other] neighborhoods have asked for cost estimates, FKAA Executive Director Kirk Zuelch said. Residents say grinder pumps would be too costly to maintain.County planning staff was directed to consider amending a plan for allowing new marinas. A study by the South Florida Regional Planning Council says new marinas should be considered only when commercial marinas within five miles have reached 90 percent of their capacity. That percentage may be too high, commissioners said. Keynoter StaffKeynoter photo by KEVIN WADLOWCounty Commissioner Danny Kolhage (left) is now vice mayor. Sylvia Murphy takes the gavel as mayor, a position in which she previously served. the rates get out of control, he said. Since waste disposal and recycling is the countys largest single vending contract, said Commissioner Heather Carruthers, it seems the most responsible thing to do is go out for bid. Other factors come into play, including how the waste is handled on the mainland, and community loyalty to family-owned firms like Marathon Garbage and Keys Sanitary. Were very happy with MGS, Layton Mayor Norman Anderson told commissioners. Were not interested in going with a multinational corporation thats not as responsive.Several members of the Marathon City Council harbor similar feelings, said County Commissioner DavidRice, a Marathon resident. The county current handles waste contracts for the Middle Keys, including Marathon, but municipalities could choose to sign their own deals. Marathon considers MGS a part of the community, Rice said, and City Council members told him they will pull out of the county pact if the county tries to switch haulers.Commissioners directed staff to seek to council resolutions from affected cities Marathon, Layton and Key Colony Beach on their garbage-hauling preferences.In a related matter, commissioners gave Lower Keys contractor Rudy Krause approval to move forward with a two-year pilot program to use an air-curtain burner about the size of a semi-trailer to contain smoke from burning wood debris.Trash rates may rise over yearsFrom County, 1A ance reserves to make it work. Our desire will be not to impact students. He didnt say where hed find the money. On Nov. 21, Davidson fired off an e-mail to his board colleagues and board attorney Dirk Smits saying the administration just plain screwed up and the board must now bear the brunt of taking the lead on fixing it. Davidson said trying to use the states mandated raise money to kill the furlough program is wishful thinking that could have been as easily resolved a long time ago by a few simple phone calls from the superintendents office to state education officials.The other board members dont seem to share his anger.The district was very anxious to eliminate the furlough days, board member John Dick said, and so it might have been done a bit premature.What we can do now is use our money for the buyback of the furlough days and use the [state] funding for providing the raise we were trying to negotiate with the United Teachers of Monroe school personnel union.Contract talks between the district and the union broke down two weeks ago. For more on this story, go to www.KeysNet.com .Superintendent isnt worriedFrom Schools, 1AMartin takes board gavelRon Martin, a former principal of Coral Shores High School, is the new chairman of the Monroe County School Board following a Tuesday organizational meeting.The gavel passed from former Chairman Andy Griffiths, the boards District 2 representative and a six-term elected official.Board member John Dick nominated Martin and Ed Davidson seconded; there was no discussion. Martin was elected to the board in 2010, defeating four-term incumbent Debra Walker. His term has been marked by his focus on empowering teachers and individual schools with more budgetary discretion. Dick nominated District 1 member Robin SmithMartin of Key West, also elected in 2010 when he defeated Barbara Bowers, to serve as vice chairman, which was accepted unanimously (Smith-Martins seat formerly was held by Steve Pribramsky, who declined to seek a second term). He has championed a five-year strategic plan, which the district adopted last year. Smith-Martin suggested adding Sugarloaf School to the rotation of regular board meeting sites and Griffiths wants Key Largo School in the rotation, as well. The twice-monthly meetings are now held at the Henriquez Administra tive Building on Trumbo Point in Key West, Marathon High School and Coral Shores High School in Tavernier.Smith-Martins vice chairmanMONROE COUNTY SCHOOLSKeynoter Stafftion Advisory Board Chair man Steve Miller said his panel held two specific meetings about Rowells, and strongly endorses the purchase. This was all done out in the open, Miller said. The public came to the meetings and expressed loud support. Miller, a Big Pine Key, said that while in Key Largo he stopped random people who dont necessarily come to a meeting to ask them about Rowells. Not a single person objected to it. Jim Boilini, an Upper Keys representative on the county parks board for two decades, told commissioners that no other plan for a new park received almost unanimous support like Rowells. Representatives from several Upper Keys community organizations the Island of Key Largo Federation of Homeowners Associations, the Tavernier Community Association, Fair Play for Key Largo and the Key Largo Chamber of Commerce all told the commission to buy Rowells to preserve the open-water view and open acreage for benefit festivals. Two individual speakers objected. Gastesi outlined a concept plan that includes large open areas, picnic facilities and a bayfront beach. A 25slip marina, to be developed by a private company, would help pay for operational costs, he said. So will rent from festivals and other events. Once the purchase is sealed, more detailed plans will be crafted. A boat ramp was dropped from consideration due to costs and neighbors objections. Other facilities will be limited, Gastesi said. This will not be a drain on our budget, everybody understands that.The Rowell family sold its property for $6.5 million in 2005 as the potential site for 136 luxury condominiums. The condo plan fell victim to a combination of county building-permit limits and the real-estate bust. The current seller, Largo Sun Vista Acquisition Co. of Deerfield Beach, later acquired the land.Not a single person objectedFrom Rowells, 1A Keynoter photo by KEVIN WADLOWUpper Keys residents have pushed for years for the county to get an events field.

A Marathon man charged last December with murder for hire for allegedly hiring a hitman to kill a Realtor is expected to plead out in Miami federal court Monday morning. Dennis Zecca, in his early 50s, had been scheduled to plead on Nov. 14 but got a lastminute delay for reasons unknown. Both the U.S. Attorneys Office and Zecca attorney William Aaron have declined comment. Zecca, a former commander of U.S. Coast Guard Station Islamorada, is accused of hiring someone to kill Marathon Realtor Bruce Schmitt. Schmitt, who was not physically harmed, says he doesnt know Zecca. Last January, Zecca pleaded not guilty to federal charges of murder for hire, conspiracy to possess with intent to distribute cocaine, attempt to possess with intent to distribute cocaine, and transfer of a firearm to a convicted felon. Under those charges, Zecca was facing life. Court filings dont say to what Zecca plans to plea when he goes before U.S. District Court Judge Jose Martinez at 10 a.m. Monday in District Court, in Courtroom 10-1 at 400 N. Miami Ave., Miami. Zecca was arrested last Dec. 21 for allegedly attempting to pay an employee a federal informant who is a convicted felon $20,000 or a kilo of cocaine to murder Schmitt. No one has ever said what the incentive was. Federal authorities say Zecca had associates and co-conspirators in this offense but have not said who they are. Its not known if any plea Zecca offers will be based on offering authorities information on who the associates and co-conspirators are.Just 10 days ahead of her release from state prison, a three-judge Third District Court of Appeal panel turned down Norma Jean Sawyers challenge of her March 21, 2012, theft-related conviction.Monroe County Circuit Court Judge Mark Jones sentenced Sawyer, former executive director of the nowdefunct Bahama Conch Community Land Trust in Key West, to two years in prison for stealing $121,637 in public money. Sawyer, now 62, was convicted by a Monroe County jury of felony scheme to defraud for misappropriating city and state grant money intended to construct housing for the homeless at 307 Julia St. in Bahama Village.She appealed the conviction but on Wednesday, Miami-based DCA Judges Linda Ann Wells, Kevin Emas and Ivan Fernan dez upheld the lower courts decision in a onepage opinion with no specific comment.After her expected release from prison on Nov. 30, Sawyer will be on probation for 25 years. Jones also ordered her to pay $59,262 in restitution to the city of Key West, $62,375 to the state Department of Children and Families and $32,174 to the State Attorneys Office for investigative and prosecutorial fees.Sawyer is imprisoned at the Lowell Correctional Institute Annex near Ocala, the same prison complex housing former School District administrator Monique Acevedo and former Monroe County Technical Services Director Lisa Druckemiller. Acevedo and Druckemiller are serving time for separate theft-related crimes.

That includes the Florida Keys. Flood Insurance Agency President Evan Hecht said Thursday that his company mailed 168 Keys property owners a flier detailing his firms flood policy. We mailed direct-mail solicitations to everyone we could identify that bought a house in the Keys since 2012 that was pre-FIRM, he said. Pre-FIRM refers to houses built before January 1975, when the Federal Emergency Management Agencys flood insurance rate map was created. Many of those homes are older and built at or below base flood elevation. Before Biggert-Waters, the average Keys mortgage holder paid $650 to $1,000 yearly for flood insurance. But insurance agents up and down the Keys are quoting new annual premiums as high as $43,000 annually depending on the type of house and location. Non-primary residences and pre-FIRM houses have been hardest hit out of the gate, and the law has resulted in untold numbers of failed real estate transactions. The maximum coverage under NFIP is $250,000. Mel Montagne, vice president of sales for Keys Insurance Services, said he quoted a real estate agent $35,000 per year for a Key Largo home 9 feet below base flood elevation. Obviously, that deal didnt go through, he said. That right there is a home that wasnt sold. A Realtor didnt make money and I didnt sell a policy and you have a homeowner thats a prisoner of that house.The Flood Insurance Agency flier advertises prices comparable to previous NFIP policies, with the same coverage. It includes a chart, available on the companys website, where residents can determine their exact cost.Depending on where the home is and the level of coverage up to $250,000 in damage and $100,000 in contents coverage premiums range from $1,669 per year to $12,805 annually. One of the reasons we put the rates on the website is theres a lot of panic among the marketplace, he said. Theres been a lot of horror stories in all the papers. We thought whatever competition we create, if you want to do the same thing, this is what were doing. Montagne said he would have concerns with the Lloyds-backed coverage if its offered in the Keys. He said Lloyds is a non-admitted insurance company in Florida, meaning its not subject to rate or form filing by the Office of Insurance Regulation. Theoretically, they could increase policy premiums to whatever they like upon renewal. Hecht said thats not likely to happen. This Lloyds group has been writing flood insurance for 25 years, he said, referring to Lloyds Private Flood.In addition, Lloyds doesnt participate in the Florida Insurance Guarantee Associa tion, meaning customers could be left footing the bill if the company should go bankrupt.Again, not likely to happen, Hecht says. That is a true statement and has to be disclosed on every policy. Theyve been writing insurance since 1688 and they have never not paid a valid claim, he said. The Biggert-Waters Act is aimed at stabilizing the NFIP, which is running at a $24 billion deficit since Hurricane Katrina struck New Orleans in 2005.But Keys expert says be wary of Lloyds policiesBy RYAN McCARTHYrmccarthy@keynoter.comFLOOD INSURANCEZecca plea expected on MondayMurder-for-hire suspect is set for federal courtIN THE COURTS ZECCAKeynoter StaffCourt rejects Sawyers appealBut former nonprofit head set for releaseIN THE COURTSKeynoter Staff
Even a lower cost estimate for repairing and maintaining the old Seven Mile Bridge over the next 30 years still requires about $66 million, top state officials said Wednesday. Everyone wants to save the bridge, Florida Depart ment of Transportation Secretary Ananth Prasad told Monroe County commissioners at their meeting in Key Largo. But local communities must be ready to pay a significant share of costs as part of a partnership, Prasad said. The Old Seven Mile Bridge stands as a historic structure and iconic image of Florida, he acknowledged. But the bigger picture is that it doesnt serve a transportation purpose and its condition is declining. The Marathon end of the bridge has been closed to auto traffic and fishing for years, with DOT saying the bridge is not structurally sound. But the bridge is still popular as a pseudo-park where people walk, jog, bike and skate. Its also a prime photography spot for tourists.Gus Pego, DOTs South Florida regional secretary, said the agencys recent inspections of the 2.3-mile segment leading to Pigeon Key revealed a lot of good news.Henry Flagler designed the bridge to carry a railroad, which is a much heavier load than vehicle traffic, Pego said.Pego outlined a plan to essentially leave the existing deck and support beams in place with enough repairs to allow a single vehicle lane for passenger-trolley transport, emergency vehicles and light supply trucks.According to DOT, the old Seven Mile segment (not including the county-owned access ramp to Pigeon Key) could be repaired and maintained for a 30-year total of $66 million: $33 million for major repairs in the first 10 years, $27 million in repairs in the following 20 years, plus annual maintenance of $200,000.A report prepared by Monroe County consultant HDR Inc. says the bridge requires $79.5 million in that same period: $24 million in the first decade, $48 million over the next two decades, and $250,000 in yearly maintenance. Prasad did not dismiss the countys report, but said DOTs inspection was more in-depth. We understand what it costs to build and maintain a bridge, he said. County Administrator Roman Gastesi said the two engineering assessments are relatively close but even DOTs lower cost estimate is still a huge number. Commissioner George Neugent, who has been an advocate for Pigeon Key and the old bridge, said county board members have to digest a spreadsheet of cost numbers in the DOT report. Its going to be a sell to more of my fellow commissioners, Neugent said. We need to have more conversation about what we can do on our side of the partnership, Commissioner David Rice said. Thats the core of the issue. If an agreement is reached soon, Prasad said the state agency could begin designs and seek permits for construction in the fiscal year beginning June 2015. Commissioners plan to discuss old Seven Mile Bridge issues again at a Dec. 11 meeting in Marathon. A Key West man arrested Nov. 4 for possession with intent to distribute cocaine and Ecstasy admitted to investigators he sold thousands of tablets of Ecstasy over the last several months, according to a federal report. David Super Dave Poindexter, 46, is charged with possession of a controlled substance without a prescription, possession of cocaine or a cocaine mixture and possession of phenethylamines.Poindexter is familiar with law enforcement, having been arrested by Key West police six times since 2010 on charges ranging from driving under the influence to felony assault, according to Sheriffs Office records.Based on a criminal complaint filed Monday in U.S. District Court in Miami, city police received a tip about Poindexters alleged drug activity on Oct. 10 from Todd Blyth, a special agent with the U.S. Department of Homeland Security. Blyth wrote that on Oct. 22, a confidential informant bought two grams of cocaine from Poindexter for $100, then repeated the transaction the next day. On Nov. 4, police showed up at Poindexters job with Island Safari Rentals at 424 Greene St. and arrested him. Police say when arrested, he had 24.4 grams of cocaine and $1,431. After searching the business, police found another 1.4 grams of cocaine, three Valiums and 878 tablets of MDMA, the active ingredient in Ecstasy. At Poindexters Watson Street house, police found another 166.6 grams of cocaine and another 586 ecstasy tabs. Poindexter admitted to selling thousands of tablets of MDMA over the last several months, Blyth wrote in his federal complaint.

More agencies want more moneyMore than a few of 22 local nonprofit organizations requesting a piece of the city of Marathons annual $90,000 social-services pie are likely to be disappointed come Tuesday evening. The city distributes that amount out each year in grants to nonprofits. The City Council is charged with deciding how to dole it out. But theres only so much to go around and the 22 nonprofits have requested a combined $192,562 for fiscal year 2013-14. Thats up from 2012-13, when 18 nonprofits requested $173,688.The council has typically leaned toward funding nonprofits like Keys Area Inter denominational Resources, a food bank providing various services to those in need, more than others.Its no surprise that KAIR and transitional living facility Independence Cay made the largest 2013-14 requests at $25,000. The Grace Jones Day Care Center and the Middle Keys Youth Center, which opened fewer than two weeks ago, each requested $20,000. The Marathon Recreation Center is the next largest request at $12,000, while the Education Coalition for Monroe County, Hospice of the Florida Keys/Visiting Nurse Association, Kreative Kids Christian Academy and the Rural Health Network all requested $10,000.KAIR, Independence Cay, Grace Jones Day Care and Kreative Kids received by far the largest allocations in 2012-13. KAIR led the way at $17,060, while Independence Cay received $16,100, Grace Jones $8,900 and Kreative Kids $7,100.A representative of each nonprofit is allotted three minutes to speak on Tuesday. The five-member council then decides who gets what. The money is for direct services only, not administrative costs. Tuesdays City Council meeting is scheduled to begin at 5:30 p.m. at the Marathon Government Center.By RYAN McCARTHYrmccarthy@keynoter.com Saturday, November 23, 2013 5A Keynoter KeysNet.com 423 Sombrero Beach Rd #3Marathon 11050 Overseas Hwy., Marathon, FL 33050 Lea & Dave RueschThe Reliable Professionals(305) 393-1843 Our listing on Harbor Club South in Marathon JUST SOLD in LESS THAN 60 DAYS FOR 94% OF THE LISTING PRICE!

Couple unwittingly transports potThe Monroe County Sheriffs Office plans to destroy 11 pounds of marijuana it says was mistakenly shipped to a rental home in Louisiana owned by a Key Largo couple. Theres what happened, according to the Sheriffs Office: The 54-year-old Key Largo man called the Sheriffs Office Wednesday after he and his wife, 49, opened two locked suitcases and found the illegal substance inside. He told Deputy Dave Campbell a box was shipped to a vacation rental home they own in Slidell, La., back in July. He said his cleaning lady told him about it and he told her to return it to UPS. He said she did that but the package once again wound up on the doorstep of the Louisiana property and the cleaning lady put it inside. He said he and his wife recently took a trip to check on several rental properties, including the one in Louisiana, and found the box still there. He said they opened it and found two locked blue suitcases. Thinking the suitcases were probably lost luggage being shipped to someone, they decided to put them in the back of their truck and deal with them later, when they got home to their house on East 2nd Street in Key Largo. Once they got there, they cut the locks off the luggage. Inside they found two sealed bags full of marijuana 11 pounds total. They called the Sheriffs Office, which took control of the pot. This could have been really bad, said Detective Sgt. Al Ramirez. These people were traveling all over with this stuff in their truck. If they had been pulled over with it, they could have wound up in jail and their truck may have been seized.11 pounds found in two suitcasesKEY LARGOTax trial wraps after two daysThe question of whether local property taxes should be paid on property that formerly housed military and military support staff now is in the hands of Monroe County Circuit Court Judge David Audlin. A two-day trial to resolve Southeast Housing LLCs lawsuit that challenges the legality of the tax wrapped Thursday. The Monroe County Property Appraisers Office is the defendant.In 2007, the U.S. Navy, retaining ownership of the land, transferred the ownership of 895 houses in Key West to Southeast Housing, a division of multinational corporation Balfour Beatty Communities.When the federal government owned the houses, it was immune from local property taxes. Former Property Appraiser Karl Borglum testified his office didnt become aware of the transfer until 2011. When it did, Borglum filed an $11.5 million lien seeking back taxes, penalties and interest for the units, spread across Sigsbee Park, Trumbo Annex, Truman Annex, Peary Court and the Branch Medical Clinic on South Roosevelt Boulevard. Southeast challenged the lien with the August 2012 lawsuit. Attorney John Dent of Sarasota, representing current Property Appraiser Scott Russells office, asked Borglum his understanding of the situation surrounding the transfer.Did the owner of the property notify you that the ownership changed? Dent asked.No, Borglum said. Our understanding was they were exempt and his office wasnt aware they were creating a taxable interest under Southeast. But If theres no taxable interest created for an immune property, theres no need for an exemption. Borglum said he believed that even with the transfer, the property remained owned by the government and immune from taxes. Southeast is represented by Orlando-based attorney James Spoonhour and local attorney David Paul Horan. This case is really about whether previously granted exemptions should be continued, Spoonhour said. Nothing has changed in fact since those exemptions were granted. The only thing that has changed is the property appraisers opinion.Dent and Borglum contest that, maintaining that no exemption was ever granted. Responding to Spoonhour, Dent said the statement is factually and legally flat wrong.He said the United States, as an owner, is by definition not a taxpayer. They can show no evidence that any exemption was ever granted to this property since Borglum believed the property was still government-owned.The Florida Department of Revenue is a defendant as the oversight agency for county property appraisers. Its not known when Audlin will rule.Immune, exempt appear to be the key phrasesBy SEAN KINNEYskinney@keynoter.comIN THE COURTSKeynoter StaffSOCIAL SERVICES

It couldnt be done without them. Thank you again to Capt. Spider and everyone who came out to support SHARK. Nycole Romeo Executive director SHARK, MarathonBy NICHOLAS BURNSFor Americans who remember Nov. 22, 1963, there is an understandable temptation to dwell on the nearly unbearable tragedy of that day. I remember vividly the shock and confusion of a 7-year-old, refusing to believe it was true until I ran home from school to find my mother in tears.The entire nation and much of the world was thrown into mourning for a young, charismatic president who had led us all too briefly. But with the passage of a half centurys time, it is possible now, and certainly more sensible, to reflect more on the life and not just the death of John F. Kennedy. He has lingered long in our memory and imagination, especially in Massachusetts, where he was born. And it is remarkable that he remains to this day a significant figure in the national and global conversation. Historians will ultimately deliver the final verdict on his promising but imperfect and truncated presidency. Yet there are lessons we can learn from how he played the role he loved best his stewardship of American foreign policy at the very height of the Cold War. Three come readily to mind. First, starting with his memorable inaugural speech, one of JFKs lasting achievements was to convince young people to see public service as exciting, worthwhile, and even ennobling. Many current leaders from both parties went into the city halls, state legislatures, and Congress due to a simple but compelling exhortation ask what you can do. He represents a fascinating counterpoint to those today who disparage government and call retreat to a more isolationist future.Second, JFK was a very different leader by 1963 than he was when he took office, especially in responding to the life and death challenges of the Cold War. He authored a string of misjudgments in his first year from the Bay of Pigs to a failed meeting with Soviet leader Nikita Khrushchev and hesitant leadership during the Berlin Crisis.But Kennedys self-confidence allowed him to learn from failure. He developed a healthy respect for the mortal dangers of the East-West struggle, growing wary of the lure of militarism, emphasizing restraint and caution instead in his war and peace duel with the Soviets. These attitudes turned out to be crucial during the Cuban Missile Crisis a year later.Faced with the danger of a nuclear holocaust, Kennedy negotiated, creatively and courageously, a last-minute compromise with Khrushchev that kept the peace between two rattled adversaries, saving millions of lives on both sides of the Cold War divide. It was his finest moment.And there is a third lesson to contemplate. In the last months of his life, Kennedy argued passionately and publicly for America to resist demonizing our adversaries and thinking war is inevitable. In his most important speech at American University in June 1963, he challenged Americans, with the near miss of the missile crisis in our wake, to commit to the most important topic on earth peace because, he said, we have no more urgent task. Nicholas Burns is a professor of the practice of diplomacy and international politics at Harvards Kennedy School of Government. This is reprinted from the Miami Herald.Pay it forwardLilia J. McBride is a registered nurse from the Philippines who lives in Marathon. She has many family members in the Philippines. Most of them are safe from the recent typhoon. However, all of them have lost their homes. None have any sort of insurance.In this holiday season, I am extremely grateful and thankful that I have three homes. It was not always so. Back in 1977, we had a house fire in Patchogue, N.Y. My 7-year-old daughter died in the fire and our house burned to the ground. The loving, caring people of Patchogue and surrounding areas and states helped us survive. I am thankful for this generosity. Now, I am paying it forward. We have started an account at Bank of America, account No. 898022406289, under Lilian J. McBride Family. This will help her family in the Philippines survive. Please open your hearts this season and go to any Bank of America branch and donate $1, $5, $10 or whatever you can afford, by cash, check or credit card. All money will go to her family. Also, please post this on your Facebook page. Let us see how this can multiply and grow. I thank everyone in advance for the generosity. Monica Quinn Port St. LucieStudents bring down houseA big thank-you goes out to the Drama Club at Marathon High School for its amazing student-run production of A Night On Broadway.Senior and student Director Xavier McKnight and his gang of some 40 cast members and crew brought the house down in the school auditorium on Nov. 16. The production featured some 16 numbers with singing, dancing and tumbling, including songs from Wicked, Chicago, Rent and Mama Mia.What an entertaining evening. It was just fabulous. A full house of students and family members, plus friends and supporters, filled the auditorium and the applause went on and on. These young adults directed by Xavier should get a standing ovation, and they did. They are so talented, professional and happy. You could tell they were so proud of their show. I think anyone who was fortunate to be in the audience that evening is proud of them. What an accomplishment. A special moment was the entire auditorium singing Happy Birthday to Xaviers mom Cindy at the end of the show. I shall long remember this fabulous night. Julie Joyce-Rehbock MarathonCrime down in the KeysCrime in the Keys went down by almost 8 percent in the first half of this year compared to the same time period in 2012, according to data released by the Monroe County Sheriff Office this week. The data, from the Florida Department of Law Enforcement, tracks the first six months of 2013. The FDLE statistics say the Sheriffs Office crime rate decreased by 7.8 percent from the same six-month period in 2012, while the city of Key West rate dropped 7.9 percent. Sheriffs Office deputies and detectives achieved their highest clearance rate for crimes since 1991 during the first half of the year 27.4 percent. The 2012 clearance rate from January to June was 23.4 percent.In Key West, the 2013 clearance rate is 23.5 percent, down from 25.1 in 2012.The statewide average clearance rate in 2012 was 24.8, according to the FDLE.There are two ways to clear a case, said agency spokeswoman Deputy Becky Herrin: By arrest or cleared by exception, which means an offender has been identified but there is something beyond the agencys control that keeps that offender from being arrested.An example, Herrin said, is if the offender is dead, extradition from another jurisdiction is denied or the case involves a minor who cant be charged with a crime for some reason.Sheriff Rick Ramsay said he is happy the numbers coincide with the first six months of his first term in office.I am also happy to say our agency is clearing more cases than we ever have, Ramsay said in a prepared statement. Our efforts at cleaning up our community and making it more safe is having a visible effect on our crime and clearance numbers.Ramsay has made community cleanups one of the hallmarks of his tenure, using deputies, jail inmates and others to clean blighted areas.Key West Police Chief Donie Lee noted six months is a small sample set, but said hes pleased to see that some areas of concern showed improvement. Im especially grateful to our crime-prevention partnership with the community, Lee said in a statement. Working together, we may see our efforts paying off. Lee has put his focus on so-called quality-of-life issues, such as vagrants drinking in public areas. Most of the decrease in crime in the county was in larceny cases, which went from 1,261 from January to June 2012 to 1,105 for the first six months of this year. There were no homicides in the county in the first six months of this year, but that changed in August after a homeless man stabbed another homeless man to death in Marathon. That same month, a Stock Island man was charged with manslaughter in the stabbing death of another Stock Island man. Two people were murdered during the first six months of last year.Rapes went up from 18 to 22. Twelve of those occurred in Key West. Robberies were down from 38 to 31 (23 in Key West). Up were aggravated assaults 141 to 157 and automobile thefts (59 to 83).The numbers are for first 6 months of 2013KEYS CRIMEKeynoter StaffCity hall bids are inConstruction bids for Marathons planned new city hall were opened Tuesday afternoon, but wont be made public until late next week. So said City Manager Roger Hernstadt, saying he wants to avoid misinformation hitting the streets about the project before he has a chance to really study the bids. This is a really high-profile project and I dont want to poison the well by any information going out prematurely. I want to make sure we double and triple check everything, he said. I think about by the latter part of next week, we should have a better sense of where were at, he added. I want to really make sure the information, either via me or individual council members or the media, has really been well vetted. Hernstadt said he prefers not to reveal the price range, or even how many contractors submitted bids. He wants all the information released together. I dont want to announce a low bid number and discover it has a flaw, he said. However, the City Council has approved a roughly 15,000-square foot, one-story building on stilts expected to cost from $5 million to $5.5 million. That includes a 200-person meeting/banquet hall for council meetings and other events.

When it comes to saving for retirement, time can be our biggest ally, or worst enemy. For workers in their 20s, its often both. Setting aside money for their golden years doesnt rank high on a list of priorities for many twenty-somethings. At that age, its easy to conclude retirement planning can be put off until one earns a better living.Workers ages 25 to 34 today are less likely to save for retirement than employees 10 years ago, according to a survey earlier this year by the nonprofit Employee Benefit Research Institute. And 60 percent reported they had less than $10,000 set aside for retirement, not including retirement benefit plans. Retirement savings often take a backseat to paying student loans and other expenses.Yet workers who begin building a nest egg in their 20s can ultimately end up saving more with less financial pain than those who get started later.What young people and many people dont realize is the power of compound growth means if you begin saving sooner, the easier it is, said Carrie Schwab-Pomerantz, senior vice president at Charles Schwab & Co.Here are some tips for workers in their 20s:Start earlyThe sooner you start saving, the greater your potential balance when you retire. Financial experts stress that everyone in their 20s should find a way to save some of their earnings for retirement.Schwab recommends you set aside 10 percent to 15 percent of your pretax annual income. If you start early, that level of contribution can probably suffice until you retire.If you do that, you should have a relatively comfortable retirement, said Schwab-Pomerantz.Put it off until your 30s, and then youll have to save 15 percent to 20 percent annually. Wait until your 40s, and the recommendation jumps to 25 percent to 35 percent.Embace investingDespite the severe downturn in the 2008 financial crisis, investing in the stock market remains the best longterm play to generate the most return on your money. If youre 20, 25, or even 35, you still have 25 to 35 years to ride out the highs and lows of any investment, said Lyssa Thaden, manager of partner education at American Student Assistance, a nonprofit agency that caters to college students and graduates. For young investors, the easiest approach is to invest through an employer-sponsored retirement plan like a 401(k). The money is taken out of your paycheck on a pre-tax basis and invested in stocks and other assets by a fund manager. You can withdraw the funds at 59 1/2 without penalty. If your employer offers a matching contribution, make sure you contribute at least enough to get the full matching benefit. No access to a 401(k)? Consider opening a Roth IRA account. Your contributions will be taxed upfront, but in your 20s youll likely be in a low tax bracket. When you withdraw funds after you turn 59 1/2, the funds and gains earned along the way are tax-free. And if you invest, resist the temptation to cash out before you retire, or youll pay hefty tax penalties.Save automaticallyIf investing is not an option right now, try setting aside some money, even if its just $20 a paycheck, into a savings account. Arrange for the funds to be deposited automatically, so youll be less likely to spend it.

The Key West City Commission on Tuesday got its first look at architect Bert Benders detailed design for a $15.4 million conversion of Glynn Archer Elementary School into a new White Street city hall.The city began working with the Monroe County School District on a no-cost transfer of the property in 2009, and construction is expected to start sometime next year. In return for the former school, the district gets to use city property for bus parking.Were right on target currently and we have a commitment to maintain that budget, Bender assured the commission. He said the latest estimate is $14.9 million for construction and another $500,000 for furniture, fixtures and other equipment. Bender detailed the sites two 26,000-gallon cisterns that will be used to collect rainwater for irrigation, a solar array capable of producing up to 67 kilowatts of energy per hour, and a butterfly garden. When complete, the first floor will include City Commission chambers and offices, a small office for the Monroe County School Board and the city building, planning, zoning, parking and revenue departments. The second floor will house the city manager and city attorneys office along with the finance, water and engineering departments.Bender said his blue-sky approach to the renovation means the historic exterior walls stay and the entire interior is demolished. Parking will be off United Street, as will the primary entrance to the building. There will be another entrance off White Street and, in an effort to alleviate neighborhood concerns about traffic, no public entrances off Seminary Street.Currently the city rents commercial space for city hall at Habana Plaza on Flagler Avenue for about $500,000 per year. Bender said construction documents would be finalized in December, enabling crews to look for any hidden conditions at the former school. He doesnt expect any substantive issues. The Glynn Archer model replaced a decade-old plan to spend $18 million rebuilding the citys former city hall at 525 Angela St., along with a new fire station and a threestory parking deck.The Angela Street property has been abandoned because its falling apart and has mold.

Time was running out on the Marathon High girls soccer team Wednesday night, but the Dolphins, down 3-2, were intent on completing a comeback against Key West at Tommy Roberts Memorial Stadium. Each time a Marathon player got the ball in the great green expanse that was Conch territory, Dolphins fans liberally sprinkled among the modest-sized crowd created a commotion. A cowbell clanged. Do not leave your player, implored Key West keeper Angela Martin to her teammates.Two minutes! Sucameli shouted.It was on a roll that both teams entered the stadium, Marathon at 5-2-2, Key West at 5-3 and coming off its first victory over Coral Shores High in seven years. The Conchs came out firing, but Dolphins keeper Sammie Bonilla stopped a close-in shot by Julia Passarelli and then one by Caila DeAbreu. Key West kept coming, specifically the high-scoring DeAbreu, who beat Bonilla from the right side for a 1-0 lead.With 10 minutes left in the first half, DeAbreu scored again on a breakaway to makeKey West girls take a 3-0 lead and hold on for a 3-2 victoryBy DICK WAGNERKeynoter ContributorPREP SOCCERPhoto by BERT BUDDEKey Wests Olivia Kennedy tries to dribble past Marathons Savannah Schuhmacher as referee Vince Sucameli (left) watches during Wednesdays 3-2 Conch victory.Fins roll past WarriorsSolid defense and improved free-throw shooting helped the Marathon High School girls basketball team to an easy 40-21 home victory over Westminster Christian School on Tuesday.The Dolphins (2-1) allowed just a shade over five points per quarter in helping new coach Deanna Klaus notch her first District 16-3A win.Combined, junior John Nisha Qualls and sophomore Gardine Raymond outscored the Warriors on their own, netting 14 points each. Yailin Nieda had eight points and Kenna Wellever had four.Klaus said Raymond shot 8-for-11 from the free-throw line against Westminster. She worked on that [Tuesday] and did a good job. Weve been struggling at the free-throw line and we have to pick it up, she said. Marathon held the Warriors to just four points in the first quarter and led 18-7 heading into the second. They led 24-11 at the half and 34-13 after three, holding Westminster to just two points in the quarter. Klaus said the entire roster saw playing time in the fourth quarter as the Dolphins cruised to a decisive win and a 1-0 record in district play. Ive got kids that are playing hard. Its going to take a while for them to learn the things I want them to know but theyre working hard and trying to get better. Theyre a fun group of kids to be around, she said.

The Dolphins lost on their home court to Westminster Christian School on Tuesday, 65-37, and Miami Country Day on Thursday, 54-32. The last two games we started off great and were in the game and it falls apart. We turned it over a lot of times and just didnt take care of the ball, coach Kevin Freeman said. Marathon committed 21 and 25 turnovers, respectively, against the Warriors and Spartans. The intensity was there; we just didnt make good decisions. Well fix it, Freeman said. On Tuesday, the Dolphins trailed 14-12 at the end of the first quarter and 26-18 at the half, but the game slipped further away from there. Marathon was outscored 16-7 in the third quarter and trailed by 17 points, 42-25, heading into the fourth. Nelson Rojas led the Dolphins with 14 points against the Warriors, while Cooper Chaplin had nine and Damian Chavez had five. Thursday against Country Day, the Dolphins played another solid first quarter, hitting three three-pointers and trailing 16-13 heading into the second.

Chaplin had four points, six rebounds and three steals. which Norland had only two shots. We shut them down before we got to the net, said coach Marc Pierre. Lee, a freshman, is being challenged for the starting keeper spot by Gavin Mock, last years goalie who joined the team after an outstanding season place-kicking for the football squad. Mock played in the field Wednesday night.Pierre said Norland isnt as fast or as physical as he expected, adding that they didnt play together as a team.As for his teams performance, he said, I was happy, they did everything we asked them to do. Finishing at the net still concerns Pierre. We want them to put the ball on frame, he said, referring to the 24-foot width of the goal. But the new coach can be forgiving. Even professionals miss shots, he said.Goalie spot openFrom Conchs, 1B it 2-0 the score at halftime and conclude a span of Conch play that coach Scott Paul deemed spectacular.Eighteen minutes into the second half, Passarelli, the tiny sophomore, drove the right side and kicked the ball high into the net past Sacha Olivera, who had replaced Bonilla in goal. That made it 3-0 and Passarelli spun and raced back up field with her arms high in triumph.Not so fast, said Marathon.Two minutes later, Dolphins freshman midfielder Chandler Elliott drove in a shot from the left corner. She quickly followed that with another goal off a cross from Savannah Rodamer to make it 3-2. The comeback didnt surprise Marathon coach Cindy Durkin, who, from the little knot of blue that was the Dolphins bench, calmly advised, Play hard. Down the sideline, Paul was thinking, I dont want a tie. One minute! Sucameli yelled. Away, away! Martin screamed as teammate Selyne Casas kicked the ball out of trouble.Key Wests Tatum Flowers slammed into Rodamer. Seconds left. The cowbell clanged. One more chance for Marathon. Regan Durkin lofted a corner kick to teammate Sydney Konrath right in front of the goal.Konrath couldnt connect and the ball rolled harmlessly away. Sucameli blew the whistle to end the 3-2 game. We felt a sense of urgency after their second goal, Martin said afterward. We calmed down and locked down on defense. Marathon left with heads high. I feel great, coach Durkin said. It was a great learning experience. We were able to keep our cool. Paul, still in his daytime history teachers shirt and tie, sat alone and exhausted on his bench amid a clutter of power-drink bottles.

You have to match not only the turkey but the oyster stuffing, the cranberry sauce, the green bean casserole and the pumpkin pie. This year is even harder, because, for one of the few times in history, Thanks giving Day (Nov. 28) is also the first day of Hanukkah, the Jewish Festival of Lights.Food bloggers are running amok, calling it Thanks givukkah and suggesting cross-cultural recipes like turkey brined in Manischewitz with challah stuffing and sweet potato latkes.Of course, all this makes the wine selection even more fun. Let the other guys play Fantasy Football. In my Fantasy Thanksgivukkah league, I would create a multifaceted lineup to go with all those flavors. After greeting my friends at the door with a glass of kosher bubbly, I would load the groaning board with a bottle of red, a bottle of white and a bottle of rose, and let the diners sort it out. I would send in sweet red and white wines for those who like them. Alcoholremoved wines for those who need them. For my beer-loving friends, I would substitute a seasonal pumpkin ale. For overtime, a bottle or three of dessert wines.

Overlooked palms deserve second lookPalm enthusiasts and collectors choose their favorite palm with an array of criteria. Some pick it based on looks alone the red lipstick palm (Cyrtostachys renda) is coveted because of its stately red trunk. Some select based on uniqueness the gingerbread palm (Hyphaene thebaica) has dichotomous branching found only in a handful of palms. And others determine their No. 1 palm based on rarity Corypha taliera was cut down to extinction because its strange flowering induced folklore that frightened villagers. Sadly, a large group of great palms is habitually overlooked by enthusiasts because they arent striking, unique or rare. These palms are like nice guys often overlooked, repeatedly dateless but completely deserving of more attention. Saw palmetto (Serenoa repens) is perhaps the best example of these forgotten palms. There are so many reasons for this palm to be cherished, but its constantly overlooked because of its homely growth habit. The flowers are a great nectar source for bees. In fact, the honey is coveted by beekeepers and honey growers as the best and most delicious. You can even find honey from saw palmetto at some local farmers markets. Florida black bears use the saw palmetto to find food. They injure the trunk of this clumping palm, after which palm weevils invade the trunk. The black bear returns and feasts on the weevils. If this does not work, the bears will settle for the fruit. Saw palmetto is a great landscape ornamental since it is low maintenance and does well in dry, sunny and cold conditions unlike most palms.Pseudophoenix lediniana is like the shy sister it can be forgotten about since its congeners are more eyecatching. Pseudophoenix sargentii is a Florida native currently threatened by habitat loss, P. ekmanii has a unique swollen belly, and P. vinifera is used for wine. P. lediniana is the best grower and does well in all conditions.Acoelorrhaphe wrightii, the Paurotis palm, used to be very popular as a landscape ornamental but lost favor after inappropriate planting left many individuals with severe frizzle top. Although not as popular in the horticulture trade, this palm is very important in the wild. It grows in seasonally flooded parts of the Everglades. By branching at the base, the Paurotis palm forms clumps. During periods of heavy flooding, these clumps are a place of refuge for Everglades critters. With huge ecological importance, it is quite surprising that relatively little is known about this palm, making it a forgotten palm indeed. This palm would be great along your canal or pond. It can handle sun or shade as long as its feet are wet, at least seasonally.These palms are treated as runts of the litter but they deserve more attention than they receive. Each of these palms would make an excellent addition to your palm collection. While not the homecoming kings of the palm world, theyd still make an excellent date to the dance.Sara Edelman is the palm and cycad manager at Fairchild Tropical Botanic Garden in Coral Gables.

Gay-wedding guide comes out for groomsJason Mitchell, a New York events planner and playwright who grew up in Plantation in Broward County, says most gay men havent been properly groomed to become grooms. Last year, Mitchell excitedly looked for how-to books as he planned his own big wedding. But wherever he looked, Mitchell found nothing but frustration. I wanted to get one of those handy books with checklists, he said. I was very disappointed because all of them were for brides. Mitchells wedding featured no bride, but there were two grooms. He and his fiance, interior designer Michael Zahler, had to start from scratch in planning their nuptials on May 27, 2012. We had a lovely wedding in New York, Mitchell said. We got married in a place called Angel Orensanz Foundation, an ancient synagogue standing in New York since 1849.After they wed, Mitchell had an idea: Since no groomsguides existed, hed write his own. He just published Getting Groomed: The Ultimate Wedding Planner for Gay Grooms ($25, Chronicle Books).Its a binder with folders that you can store all the important documents in a wedding, Mitchell said.Mitchell describes his gay grooms manual as the first of its kind. Hes probably right, said New York Times columnist Steven Petrow, author of the book Complete Gay & Lesbian Manners.On the one hand, there really has not been a book or manual for gay male couples to construct a wedding from soup to nuts. With more gay folks marrying, there may be a big need for this book, says Petrow, an etiquette expert. On the other hand, at least now, most of the weddings I know of are shotgun weddings its legal in your state, and two or four weeks later youre at the alter. These couples are not planning their weddings.Fifteen states allow gay marriage, according to www .gaymarriage.procon.org Florida doesnt allow gay marriage, but couples have been known to go to states where it is legal to have their nuptials.Mitchell, 33, won a 1998 Silver Knight Award for drama as a senior at Dillard Center For the Arts in Fort Lauderdale. In 2003, he earned a bachelors degree in theater from Miamis New World School of the Arts. Mitchell moved to New York just after graduation. Mitchell says most young boys in the United States are not raised to plan their weddings. And until recently, gay men never even gave thought to being legally married. They havent dreamed of this day the way most brides have, according to Mitchell. Among the topics covered in the book:How do you word an invitation?How to have two men in a ceremony?How do you dress two men?Its a definite how-to guide, said Mitchell, who married Zahler in a traditional Jewish ceremony, complete with chuppah (canopy) and good-luck glass-breaking.Usually, the groom breaks the glass. So what happens when there are two grooms? We both broke the glass together at the end of the ceremony Mitchell said.How-to book reportedly is 1st of its kindBY STEVE ROTHAUSsrothaus@MiamiHerald.comLIFESTYLESSenior fitness classes plannedThe Florida Keys Area Health Education Center, in partnership with the Health Foundation of South Florida, is offering the EnhanceFitness Program for seniors in Monroe County.

KeysNet.com Keynoter 10B Saturday, November 23, 2013 The fish never jumped but we knew it was a sailfish. Our angler, David Toney, was already satisfied with the day of fishing after he caught his first blackfin tuna and numerous bonito. But I couldnt help but notice the constant vibration of my smart phone as my deckhand Capt. Seth Hopp grabbed the bill of the fish.After it was quickly pulled onto Davids lap and a picture was taken, Seth slipped the sailfish back into the water as the rest of the crew celebrated. David had never caught a sailfish before, so he was excited, to say the least.As we gathered our composure, the lines were let out and we continued trolling. I took a moment to check the text messages on my phone. Most of the messages were pictures and reports from Key Largo to Key West about sailfish they were here in droves offshore of every key. Following are some reports from some seasoned sailfishing captains.The SeaHorseCapt. Rick Rodriguez on the SeaHorse out of Islamorada is considered the canary in the coal mine to many if there is a push of sailfish, hes usually among the first to know. Rodriguez logs more than 300 trips a year on his battlewagon, thus the nickname Capt. Iron Horse. His day generally will start at one of the bait patches off Whale Harbor. They deploy the chum, wait on the show and then Jeremy serves the pancake for breakfast. In other words, he throws the large cast net as flat as he can over the ballyhoo, or whatever else has shown at the transom.The live bait is then transferred into the high-volume live well for use at the reef or drifting/slow trolling the color change. Rodriguez can locate sailfish from his upper station by seeing baits under attack (bait sprays), frigate birds or sailfish themselves. A higher vantage point always is an advantage.The MojoCapt. Travis Dickens from the Man O War out of Bud n Marys Marina in Islamorada sent a picture of eight sailfish flags attached to a private vessel, the Mojo (each flag represents a landed sailfish). He took some time to sailfish with longtime friend Capt. Brad Goodrich.When the sailfishing gets hot, many of our captains fish whether or not they have paying customers, just for the love of it. Two top-quality captains working together during a sailfish push can stack some serious flags.Landing more than two sailfish on a charter vessel is notable, but going eight for nine is a great day in anybodys book. When the sailfish are flowing down the reef line, the answer is simple: Go fish for sailfish.High Class HookerCapt. Gene Chrzanowski on the High Class Hooker out of the A&B Marina in Key West was the lucky/unlucky recipient of a triple-header sailfish knockdown on trolled ballyhoo that caused pandemonium on the deck.With just four people aboard two anglers total the third sailfish had to be disregarded as the other two were landed, leaving the husband-and-wife team of Kelly and Stacy Jorgensen in first-time sailfishing euphoria.When three sailfish are hooked at the same time, they rarely cooperate with each other to help you land them. After they realize something is wrong, all loyalty to the pack is dissolved and they do whatever they can to find deep water and get away. Superior boat handling is required. Concentration coupled with communication between the captain and deck hand is paramount. Chrzanowski raves about his deckhand Jerry Pope, especially after this type of accomplishment. An offshore sportfishing vessel cannot be competitive without a seasoned deckhand.Three for fiveCaptains Barry Andrews Jr. and Eric Evans have been working together sailfishing on the Eva Marie out of the Galleon Resort and Marina in Key West and on the Fishy Business out of Conch Harbor, also in Key West.One day theyll be on the 43-foot Torres and the next on the 32-foot Yellowfin. One thing is for sure, these two captains work well together to deliver the goods. Multifish trips are common on both boats.On a recent trip, the duo went three of five on sails. With numbers like that, you would think they were working the live-bait game, but that was not the case. Most every sailfish theyve caught has been on dead ballyhoo, some skirted and some naked, in areas where they have seen fish or hooked fish.Once the zone is located, Evans says, they box em in. A few of the sailfish have even hit the trolled plug. Theres no doubt that these migrating fish are hungry.Dont miss outHopp and I have also found sailfish within our everything spread.We run a five-line trolling spread that includes tuna feathers, a deep-diving plug and two naked ballyhoo. When we target sailfish exclusively on the troll, we convert everything over to rigged ballyhoo skirted and naked with teasers and dredges added to the mix.The dredges with the long Mylar flash strips are simple and effective. The flash is so bright, it seems you can see it from the space station. More importantly, you can see it far away out into the blue water. Sailfish will assume its a bait ball and move in to investigate.Most of our bites of late have come on the short naked ballyhoo pinned to the transom within the bubbles. The chaos caused by the props helps disguise the bait by mimicking a frenzy. We also run a long shot with rigged ballyhoo that has also been proven popular by the spindle beaks. So bottom line: Good news, its sailfish time. Get on the water to see this migration happening right now throughout the Florida Keys. Capt. Marlin Scott owns FishMonster Charters in Key West.The sailfish are biting everywhere off the Keys, nows the time to get yoursMarlin Scott On TheWaterQuick Fact:Landing more than two sailfish on a charter vessel is notable, but going eight for nine is a great day in anybodys book. The spindle beaks have arrived SeaHorse anglers Gordon Nackimo, Mike Owens and Jack Owens from California (top, left) are all smiles with their sailfish, th e billfish of which is held by deckhand Jeremy McCauley. It was a banner day on the Mojo, evidenced by these eight sailfish fla gs (top, right) flying high. Capt. Seth Hopp (above, left) revives a sailfish for release on the Premium Time out of Key West. High Class Hooker deckhand Jerry Pope and angler Kelly Jorgenson (above, right) show the first of their sailfish triple-header.
