Stories, 1B and 2B Flights delayedA charter airline has delayed for at least a month planned service between Key West and Havana. Story, 5A Fire-Rescue drugs missingMonroe County FireRescue Department officials deny the existence of an ongoing police investigation into drugs that went missing last month from the Florida Keys Marathon Airport hangar that houses the countys helicopter air ambulance. But the Sheriffs Office Wednesday confirmed its detectives are involved in an ongoing investigation into what happened to narcotics reported missing by a battalion chief from a refrigerator in the hangars medical storage room on Oct. 13. Deputy Chief of Operations Gary Boswell said in an Oct. 24 e-mail that there is no investigation or missing drugs. Yes, I can confirm this is not correct, Boswell wrote after being asked if law enforcement agents recently visited county fire stations looking into missing medications. Boswell did not elaborate and did not return several calls this week to his office phone and cell phone seeking answers about the drugs. And Dr. Sandra Schwemmer, Monroe Countys medical director, replied when asked about the missing drugs, If drugs are missing, they get restocked. She followed that statement by saying she did not understand the nature of the question. She hung up on a reporter when again asked specifically if drugs were reported missing from the TraumaStar helicopter hangar. Three subsequent calls to Schwemmer went directly into her voice mail. As of press time Friday, she had not returned those calls. The medical director is responsible for the control and use of all drugs administered by all fire departments within the county. Sources with knowledge of the investigation said the drugs are likely morphine. County Fire Chief James Callahan and County Administrator Roman Gastesi also did not return messages with questions about the missing narcotics.

More than 40 high-performance offshore racing boats are registered in the event set to end Sunday, with the finals. Races started this past Monday and were marked by high winds. Among spectators favorites is the Superboat Unlimited class, which draws powerful contenders competing at speeds that can exceed 165 mph. Popular viewing areas include waterfront hotels and Key Wests Mallory Square. A $5 billion reduction to the federal Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program, known as food stamps, took effect on Nov. 1, and Keys food banks are expecting to take a hit as many of the working poor are left to choose between paying rent or eating. With one in seven Americans enrolled in the program, which cost $78.4 billion in 2012, the collective $5 billion in cuts is placing a strain on alreadystretched food pantries, and the Keys are no exception. There are 7,586 Keys residents enrolled in SNAP, according to the U.S. Department of Agricultures Economic Research Service. The overall Monroe County population is about 74,000 people, according to the U.S. Census Bureau. Statewide, the average daily SNAP benefit is $4.60 per person, according to Rebecca Brislain, executive director of the Florida Association of Food Banks. On Stock Island, the Catholic-affiliated St. Marys Star of the Sea Outreach Mission distributes an average of 70,000 pounds of food monthly to more than 3,500 clients. In the Middle Keys, the Keys Area Interdeno minational Resources food bank at the Marathon United Methodist Community Church gives away 14,000 pounds per month up from 3,000 pounds just a few years ago to between 30 and 45 families each day. KAIR also shares food with smaller pantries on Big Pine Key operated by St. Peter Catholic Church and the Big Pine Key United Methodist Church. Staff from both service organizations agrees the federal cuts will create an increased demand, which theyll attempt to fill. We have really bulked up so weve been able to meet the demand but only because the community is so helpful, KAIR Director Marjorie Roberts said. Food stamps, St. Marys Outreach Mission founder and volunteer Executive Director Tom Callahan said, just like us, are one of many safety nets. One of the legs of the stool was just chopped a bit, which means the other legs, which would be us, are going to have to pick up the slack. Callahan said his organization is about at the max right now. We cant processAlmost 10% of Keys residents on food stampsSOCIAL SERVICESPost-election, officials look forwardThe election of political newcomer Mark Senmartin this past Tuesday is expected to significantly change the landscape of the Marathon City Council. A good indicator of how the dust will settle comes at the outset of the councils organizational meeting this coming Tuesday, when members decide among themselves who will take over the ceremonial mayorship from outgoing Councilman Mike Cinque for the next calendar year. Cinque was termed out after three consecutive two-year terms. In Tuesdays election, Senmartin and incumbent Rich Keating, who has served two terms, were the top-two vote getters for the two open seats, leaving former five-term Councilman Pete Worthington outside looking in, coming in third. Generally, Keating, Cinque and Councilwoman Ginger Snead were aligned, creating a majority. The other council members are Dick Ramsay and Chris Bull. With Senmartin elected and with Ramsay as an ally, Bull could be the swing vote on certain issues that come before the board. Snead openly campaigned for Keating and Worthington, while Ramsay outwardly supported Senmartin.At Tuesdays council meeting at 5:30 p.m. at the Marathon Government Center, the first order of business will be to have Senmartin and Keating sworn in. Then the full council will elect the next mayor. Ramsay, in his final year on the council due to term limits, has made no secret he wants to be mayor. Id be honored to be the mayor. Ive put in five years and it would be nice in my last year to go out as the mayor, he said. But in any capacity sitting on the council, Ill do the best I know how. Bull said hes been open for months about his interest in being mayor or vice mayor in the second year of his term.Its a largely ceremonial position, but I attend a lot of events and can be a lot of help when we deal with the county, and state and federal efforts, he said. Still, Bull called Ramsay the logical choice to hold the position in his last year on the dais. Hes served the community many years and as long as hes there to help provide some decorum at the meetings and do the extra ceremonial duties assigned a mayor, then he probably should have top consideration, he said. Senmartin said the only thing he knows for sure heading into Tuesdays meeting is that he unequivocally has no interest in being mayor. And as a newcomer, he likely wouldnt get it, anyway. I havent made up my mind about who to support, he said. Dick has been here for five years and never been mayor. I know Chris was interested in doing it and has goodMayor to be chosen, ballot is questionedMARATHON Keynoter photo by RYAN McCARTHYThe main food pantry at Keys Area Interdenominational Resources in Marathon provides food for roughly 30 to 40 families daily.

Keating, who spent the past year as vice mayor, said he doesnt have anybody in particular in mind to support.Im probably going to support someone being able to bring us past some of this negative stuff from the last election and move us forward. Well just see Tuesday night, he said. Snead didnt return a call for comment. This years election is widely considered the most contentious in the citys 14-year history. Negative tactics are uncommon in Marathon City Council races but were the norm this time around. Senmartin opponents organized a flier mailed throughout the city detailing a June 12 Code Compliance ruling against him for illegally cutting down trees on his property and circulated it throughout the city using a phony name, which is against the law. That drew the attention of the Monroe County State Attorneys Office, which found after investigating that former County Attorney Jim Hendrick, a convicted felon, facilitated it. The code board found Senmartin guilty of illegally removing protected hardwood hammock from his 1515 Bluefin Drive property. He was ordered by the Code Board to pay a $500 fine, $300 administrative fee and plant 10 trees. Meanwhile during the campaign, Senmartin opponents took exception to his Committed, not Connected slogan and references to backroom deals. He also encouraged residents to vote only for him rather than choose two of the three candidates on the ballot.Choosing only one meant that candidate received 100 percent of a ballot cast. If a voter chose two of the three, that split the ballot in two. Worthington said hes disappointed that Senmartin promoted this bullet-voting strategy, as he calls it. When we changed from seats to at-large (in 2006), it was brought up that someone could manipulate the election by bullet voting. Weve never had a candidate encourage [voters] to do that, but it can manipulate the election, he said. It apparently did Tuesday, as Senmartins 1,401 votes more than doubled that of Keatings 694 or Worthingtons 637. Worthington also said the negative backlash from the Senmartin flier undoubtedly cost him votes because public perception was that he or Keating had a hand in it. Both have adamantly denied involvement. I stayed on the high road and didnt get into the negative campaigning, Worthington said, adding that the average citizen didnt even understand the fliers purpose. If I really wanted to do that and wanted to take that heat, I would have taken a full-page [advertisement] out. In my opinion, the average person couldnt even understand what it was.In fact, city staff was inundated with phone calls from residents after they received the mailer. Many believed they were being fined by the city.And while Worthington said he hasnt ruled public office out completely, hell keep a close eye on campaign tactics.If the negative campaigning and bullet voting is a practice in the future of Marathon politics, Im absolutely done. I think youre going to find it very hard to get any kind of viable candidate to run if thats the direction its going, he said.Worthington: Hole in lawFrom Election, 1Aany more food. Wed have to dramatically expand the footprint and we dont have the funds. Were crossing our fingers, seeing how this is going to play out. The good news is, he continued, we just got a huge grant, $75,000, from a national foundation. Were earmarking it toward trying to find more sources of food to offset the foodstamp cuts. We dont know how were going to do that yet but thats the plan. St. Marys staff makes daily runs to the Publix and Winn-Dixie supermarkets in Key West to pick up food that has been pulled from shelves. For example, on Wednesday, a crews picked up for redistribution 185 pounds of bakery goods, 95 pounds of dry goods, 38 pounds of meat and seafood, and 220 pounds of produce, among other things. There is also a weekly run up to the Feed South Florida regional food bank in Miami that this week yielded a variety of fruit, beans, cereal, snack foods and household items like dishwashing soap. Roberts said its tough to keep up but generous donors in the Middle Keys community have kept KAIRs shelves stocked. Were watching the government food cuts and theres probably going to be more on the way but Marathon has stepped up, she said. That includes three pickups weekly from Marathons Publix and Winn-Dixie, plus donations from restaurants and individuals. On a national scale, of the more than 47 million people receiving food stamps, 47 percent are children and the typical annual income for a three-person family with children on food stamps is $10,875, according to analysis from The Wall Street Journal. A report provided by Callahan tracked 1,226 Key West and Lower Keys children who received food though the St. Marys food bank in 2012. Most of our clients are working poor, he said. Theyre the people that choose between paying rent or buying food. They pay rent to keep from becoming homeless. And saving them money on food, thats what we do.More food demand expectedFrom Food, 1A offense report, so it is not clear the amount of drugs that went missing. Ten items are listed on the report, but what they are and why they are listed was redacted by the Sheriffs Office before the document was released Wednesday. The report states county Emergency Medical Services Capt. Andrea Sutherland received a telephone call Oct. 13 from a flight medic advising that there was a discrepancy in the narcotic log and that narcotics were missing. Deputy Christian Kellenberger said in the report that Battalion Chief Dale Beaver also told him that narcotics were missing from the Medical Room. The room in the hangar where drugs are stored is secured with an electronic keypad, according to the offense report. TraumaStar is flown by Sheriffs Office pilots, but only flight nurses and flight medics from Fire-Rescue have access to the room. Sheriffs Office spokeswoman Deputy Becky Herrin stressed that no members from the police agency have access to the room or were inside it the day the drugs went missing. None of our people have access to this room, Herrin said. She also said jail trustees on work release at the hangar do not have access to the room. We dont have anything to do with the room, she said. There is no security camera monitoring the medical supply room, Herrin said. This is not the first time medical supplies went missing from the TraumaStar hangar. In August 2010, Sutherland took unspecified supplies from the hangar. Her colleague, Battalion Chief Mark Thompson, returned some or all of the supplies the next day, according to documents obtained by The Reporter. It is unclear if any of the supplies were used. Sutherland was off duty when the supplies were taken from the hangar. Boswell said in June 2012 that Sutherland took the supplies after becoming aware of a medical need of a local volunteer firefighter. Practicing medicine while off duty and not under the supervision of a county medical director is against state law. But Boswell defended Sutherland and said she didnt violate policy. Sutherland has since been promoted to captain. The incident resulted in the firing of Lt. John Hamburger, who insisted in 2011 that Fire-Rescue brass investigate the matter. When they wouldnt, Hamburger alleged a coverup. He was fired shortly after for insubordination. Nevertheless, his colleagues elected him union chief in June 2012 while he appealed his termination. Earlier this year, a magistrate ruled the FireRescue must reinstate Hamburger.Officials silentFrom Drugs, 1A Meeting Notice Monroe County Land AuthorityThe Monroe County Land Authority Advisory Committee will meet in the Monroe Regional Service Center located at 2796 Overseas Highway, Suite 104, Marathon, Florida on November 21, 2013 beginning at 9:00 AM.

A total of $2,368 was raised to donated to Voices for Florida Keys Children, which will use the money to help furnish a newly constructed foster home in Key Largo.EPA official says S. Fla. ahead of curveFollowing President Obamas call to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency to work closely with states, industry and the public to reduce carbon pollution and to come up with new standards for coming and existing power plants, EPA Deputy Administrator Bob Perciasepe took up the challenge with a visit to Fort Lauderdale Thursday. Perciasepe addressed a group of business leaders, elected officials and the public at the fifth annual Southeast Florida Regional Climate Leadership Summit, an event that began Wednesday that included the Keys, at the Fort Lauderdale Convention Center. The work in Southeast Florida has really caught the attention of the country and it is a powerful partnership evolving here to deal with the issues we all face, Perciasepe said in the first of two presentations at the two-day summit, which concluded Friday. It would be irresponsible if this region hadnt risen up to see how it could be more resilient and more prepared, he said. The Southeast Florida Regional Climate Change Compact was created by Monroe, Miami-Dade, Broward and Palm Beach counties in January 2010 to coordinate mitigation and adaptation activities across county lines. Its designed to allow local governments to set their agendas for adapting to climate change while providing a means for state and federal agencies to engage with technical assistance and support. As part of adaptation in the Keys, Monroe County Commissioner Heather Carruthers has been focused on raising the height of roads wherever possible. Overall, the four counties have designed an organization to develop annual legislative programs and jointly advocate for state and federal policies and funding; and to dedicate staff time and resources to create an action plan to include mitigation, such as Carruthers idea for the roads, and adaptation strategies. The Obama administrations Climate Action Plan sets a goal to reduce carbon pollution by three billion metric tons cumulatively by 2030 through efficiency standards for appliances and federal buildings. Perciasepe stressed resilience frequently. We want to work with the electric-generation industry and see how resilience can be built into there, how to make electric distribution systems more resilient, Perciasepe said. Power plants, he said, are the largest individual sources of carbon emissions domestically, accounting for 40 percent of our carbon pollution. Thats more than the entire transportation system cars, planes, trains, buses and boats all together. Among the areas the EPA is looking at: More wisely managing stormwater. What we do with that rainwater, traditionally, is we get it off quickly as possible into storm drains. The idea of filtrating it back into the groundwater and how we manage stormwater and the drainage system in this country is an important building block in resilience, Perciasepe said. In the Keys as part of constructing their sewer systems to replace septic tanks and cesspits, unincorporated Monroe, Marathon, Islamorada and the Key Largo Wastewater Treatment District put into their sewer plans stormwater upgrades. There is a link between quality of life and dealing with these issues. You have to look at a modern, sustainable, forward-looking energy future, Perciasepe said. The EPA plans to put together a proposal in the spring defining ways in which the country can follow the presidents Climate Action Plan. In a cost-benefit analysis, for every dollar invested in clean air theres a return of $4 to $8 dollars in benefits, Perciasepe said. One of the greatest economic opportunities of the 21st century is working to solve climate change. Future generations of Floridians must build this consensus in moving forward.Keynoter staff supplemented this report.Four-county climate summit includes KeysBy HOWARD COHENhcohen@miamiherald.comOUR ENVIRONMENT

Dennis Zecca, a former commander of U.S. Coast Guard Station Islamorada, has a hearing set for 11 a.m. Nov. 14 before U.S. District Court Judge Jose Martinez in District Courts Courtroom 10-1, 400 N. Miami Ave., Miami, according to a Monday court filing. On Jan. 10, Zecca was indicted on 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 plead. Zecca had been scheduled for trial come December. U.S. Attorneys Office spokeswoman Annette Castillo said we cannot comment on matters that are not of public record. Zecca attorney William Aaron couldnt be reached. Federal authorities say the plot had associates and co-conspirators in this offense but have not said who they are. The pleahearing document doesnt say anything other than there is a hearing. I would have preferred we went to court, Schmitt said. Theres information that would have come out in the testimony that would have clearly made it known who the others are. He added, I have full confidence ... that the FBI will get to the bottom of this and the federal government will eventually arrest and prosecute all the people involved in this. After 26 years with the Coast Guard culminating with his Islamorada post, Zecca became part-owner of the Marathon Marina and Boatyard. He 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, and Schmitt says he has no idea and that to this day, he still doesnt even know Zecca. The murder-for-hire plot appears separate from a U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration investigation, out of which the alleged plot to kill Schmitt was hatched. Federal authorities say Schmitt, who was not harmed, was not involved in the drug case. The hit was supposed to take place while Schmitt left a Christmas party. Zecca was arrested after the informant, who was wearing a wire for the feds, showed Zecca a doctored photo of Schmitt lying in a pool of blood and as Zecca was going to get $5,000 of the $20,000 payment for the hit. The gun count stems from Zecca giving the informant a 9mm Beretta to carry out Schmitts killing. A search of Zeccas Indigo Reef condo in Marathon turned up a safe containing four handguns, four rifles, two shotguns, lots of ammunition and $42,600 in cash, the feds said.Zeccas wife Mary worked as a real estate agent for Coldwell Banker Schmitt, which is owned by Schmitts family. She was fired after her husbands arrest. Zecca pleaded not guilty on Jan. 14. Hes been in custody since his arrest.Schmitt: Trial would have cast light on plotKeynoter StaffIN THE COURTSWaving man bustedWhat the Monroe County Sheriffs Office described as a moderate-speed pursuit with a vehicle whose driver refused to stop for deputies in the Upper Keys came to end around noon Friday, about an hour after it started. The driver, 19-year-old Tyler Seeger from Tampa, faces numerous charges, Deputy Becky Herrin said, though specifics werent available as of late Friday and hadnt described the vehicle Seeger was driving. But the agency did say the pursuit started around mile marker 81 southbound of U.S. 1 and ended around mile marker 63. The driver, whom the agency says was Seeger, was seen by deputies and multiple passers-by waving to cars as he passed them. His speed remained between 40 and 60 mph during the entire drive although he reportedly ran numerous vehicles off the road driving south in northbound lanes of traffic and passing in dangerous areas. Seeger stopped before hitting one of the Sheriffs Offices Stinger Spike strips, which are basically chains with tire-puncturing spikes. Deputies crossed U.S. 1 with one at the south end of the Long Key Bridge, Herrin said, and Seeger was taken into custody on multiple charges before he ran it over.UPPER KEYS ZECCA
Saturday, November 9, 2013 5A Keynoter KeysNet.com Bug board to get lease extensionIt appears the Florida Keys Mosquito Control District has received at least a six-month reprieve from its frantic search for a new Lower Keys headquarters. The Key West City Commission on Wednesday directed City Manager Bob Vitas to negotiate a lease extension with the district for continued use of the city-owned land and building Mosquito Control built it on College Road on Stock Island. Its long appeared a foregone conclusion that the city wouldnt renew the districts $1 annual lease, favoring the site for a poten-tial 24-hour homeless shelter and service center. The district, in turn, has had staff and some commissioners researching properties for lease or purchase throughout the Lower Keys. Mayor Craig Cates has pushed for the area off College Road to be converted into a shelter, but that political hot potato has been put off for further discussion until mid-January. Vitas hasnt detailed any specific plans or costs for the shelter. Mosquito Control needs to know where theyre going to be in order to budget and plan the same way we do, Vitas said. In fairness to them, I have no objection to extending the lease for a year. Im not seeing a reason not to extend as we try to work through the gymnastics of a very complex issue, referring to homeless services. District Director Michael Doyle said he sent a letter to the city Nov. 1 asking for the city to make a decision on extending the lease until January 2015. From what the commissioners said, theyre open to extending our present lease until around the end of 2014. That allows us to get through the heavy season in 2014, he said. Doyle said his board is looking for a firm stance from the city so it can plan for the future. We would have bought something sooner than later; we would have had to move quickly, Doyle said. Im thankful the city has given us some hard facts in order to make a decision. Vitas also proposed that commissioners consider the lease amount, $1 per year. Commissioner Teri Johnston, a longtime critic of sweetheart leases, pressed for a formal discussion. This is public property, she said. Its taxpayer property. For us to continue to lease this at a dollar a year as we pay taxes into Mosquito Control for services is really a topic of conversation. Any lease negotiated by Vitas would go to the commission for approval. Commissioners also agreed theyre not inclined to sell the property. Doyle said he would pass the citys decision along to his board at its Wednesday Meeting in Key Largo. Im going ask them if thats enough information to decide if we should continue pursuing a lease with the city or if we should continue pursuing buying a local property, he said.Reporter Sean Kinney contributed to this report.City allows agency to stay one more yearMOSQUITO CONTROLKey West-Cuba flights delayedAmbitious plans ann ounced last month by a Miami travel agency to offer small charter flights between Key West and Cuba beginning Nov. 15 have been pushed back to a Dec. 15 kick-off by Mambi Internationals partners at Air Marbrisa Airlines. In a Wednesday e-mail to Peter Horton, the Monroe County airports director, Bob Curtis from Air Marbrisa said the delay is due to Mambi not yet having whats called a 380 certificate. That document, provided by the U.S. Department of Transportation, establishes an operator, in this case Air Marbrisa, as a public charter based on specific regulations. Mambi spokesman Isaac Valdes said he couldnt comment on the certificate but said flights will start Dec. 15. But if we performed the service [of using Key West International Airport to fly to and from Jose Marti International Airport now], we would be in violation of federal rules, Curtis wrote to Horton. I wont do that, therefore I have terminated any service for 30 days. It is our intent to begin the service on or around Dec. 15. Everything else remains the same, Curtis continued. All our licenses and approvals are in place. We are delaying the service for 30 days so that when we do perform, we are performing in accordance with all regulations. Last month, Horton cautioned that Mambis plans may be overly ambitious and Curtis said the company announced the pending flights to the media prematurely. The process of designating Key West International as an international point of entry began in 2009 with a request to U.S. Customs and Border Protection. Following that was a three-phase, two-year, $2.25 million project to have the airport reclassified as a federal inspection station, instead of the current label of a general aviation facility. Horton said the feds signed off on the upgrades in October 2011. Flights are scheduled to leave Mondays, Wednesday and Fridays at 3:30 p.m., returning the following morning aboard a Metro II turboprop plane. The round trip is slated to cost $449 and each flight, lasting about 30 minutes. The plane can accommodate up to 10 people, including the pilot. The last time planes flew between Key West International and Jose Marti in Havana, just 90 miles from the Southernmost City, was in 1962.

Photo courtesy MONROE COUNTY PUBLIC LIBRARYTour buses on U.S. 1 in the Keys are a familiar site, especially heading south when theres a big event planned. But thats hardly a new phenomenon. This is the Honky Tonk bar tour bus in the 1950s taking passengers to Duval Street watering holes in Key West.CELEBRATING OUR PAST EDITORIALPut negativity away for goodFROM THE PUBLISHER LETTER TO THE EDITORLet me start by saying I love the newspaper business. I love what it represents, the principles its rooted in and the daily thrills inherent in this industry. No two days are ever the same. Its a roller-coaster ride that you just dont want to get off. Thats not to say there havent been painful shifts in our industry. Hard to believe but today, almost 10 percent of U.S. adults now get their news from Twitter. Who knew? The electronic media explosion has forced newspapers to rethink their business model as many of the same people who used to read a daily newspaper now take it digitally. So its not like this business is for the faint of heart. But over the past 28 years, Ive had the privilege of working in this business. Its a blessing because this business has helped me develop new business muscles that I hope make me a valuable resource to our entire community. I started in advertising, what many call the good side of the business. Now, I take on the dual responsibility of managing and leading both the news and marketing sides of Keynoter Publishing. Though I havent been immersed in the news side to this point, I do have a strong sense of the business side. Whether it was launching new products, helping develop highly successful marketing strategies or working with small businesses to get them more customers, Ive seen it all. Ive worked with highly skilled people to those just getting started, and every experience and every new person I have met has enriched me in some way. Its funny how experiences early in life that seem so inconsequential at the time play a much larger role in the future. Who knew that my very first job ever, at age 11, would be delivering newspapers and it would have a bearing on so much later on? Who knew that selling shoes through high school and college would get me my first exposure to advertising and end up introducing me to my wife of 32 years? Who knew? One of my first managerial positions was as sales manager for the Orlando Sentinel in Kissimmee, a city in the late 1980s not completely unlike what Marathon is today, albeit without the Mouse. We were in the final days leading up to the conclusion of a highly contentious race to elect a new sheriff in Osceola County. Candidates were throwing out all sorts of barbs and innuendos. Every time the candidates claims would find their way into advertising, we poured over reams of documents to ensure those claims were factual, or at least rooted in truth. For me, that process of protecting our readers was paramount to everything. My wife Candy and I, along with our pug Shelby, moved to Marathon in March after 12 years in South Florida, where I worked at the Miami Herald. What Ive witnessed in a short time here is the passion many Keys locals have for their community, their beliefs and their livelihoods. That Conch passion seen not only in natives but in so-called freshwater Conchs who moved here from somewhere else is the same passion Ive had for this industry for almost three decades. Its infectious and spurs me on to continue the legacy of fair, unbiased journalism that has been at the core of our business for 60 years. I hope you will welcome us into the community.Richard Tamborrino took over as publisher of the Keynoter Publishing Co. Inc., parent company the Keynoter, Upper Keys Reporter, www.KeysNet.com and affiliated publications, on Nov. 1, replacing the retired Wayne Markham.Help problem gamblersIt is vital for the Florida Legislature to include funding for gambling-addiction treatment as it considers expanding the states gaming activities. In its 2014 session, the Legislature will take a close look at the economic and social impacts of expanding casino gambling in South Florida. This could potentially create new jobs and provide other economic benefits to the region. However, its important to recognize that expanding the gaming industry will also create serious problems for the small percentage of the population that suffers from gambling addiction. In many ways, expanding gaming in Florida is similar to opening a new skiing resort in the Rockies. The benefits of offering a fun and exciting recreational activity include generating new jobs and increasing tax revenues to support government services. But you dont open a ski resort or a new gaming venue without recognizing that some people will be injured. Thats why its important to allocate funds to pay for a ski patrol, or for treating problem gamblers. Currently, few private insurance companies cover treatment for gambling addiction, even though it is now recognized as an addictive disorder like alcoholism or substance abuse. Unfortunately, federal funding in Florida is only available for gambling education and prevention programs not for treatment itself. In addition, the Florida Council on Compulsive Gambling, the designated state authority for increasing public awareness of gambling addiction, suffered a draconian budget cut in 2011-12. However, states such as Oregon, Iowa, Indiana and Minnesota now provide funding for treatment of gambling addiction, with excellent results. For instance, Minnesota invests $2 million a year to help problem gamblers, and no one in that state is denied treatment because of an inability to pay. When you consider the high cost of gambling addiction on peoples lives, families and communities, every dollar spent on treatment can generate a substantial return on that investment. Considering the states growing population and demographic diversity, Florida should be a national leader in providing public support for treatment of those affected by the insidious disease of gambling addiction.Rob Hunter Clinical consultant Recovery Road Las Vegas, Nev.Marathons election this year took a nasty turn that no one appreciatedLets hope we certainly expect it that Tuesdays election of Marathons next mayor is civil, respectful and thoughtful. Because after the Nov. 5 City Council election that many in the city view as the most negative theyve seen in Marathons 14-year history, it would be a nice change. There were three candidates for two open two-year seats, those of term-limited Mayor Mike Cinque and incumbent Rich Keating, a fishing guide. Running were Keating, pawnshop/gunshop/jewelry shop owner Mark Senmartin, and former Councilman Peter Worthington, a commercial fisherman. The two who got the most votes won, and they were Keating and Senmartin. Its no surprise that many considered Worthington and Keating a ticket unto themselves, although officially they werent. They do share the same philosophies when it comes to running the city. Wherever you saw a Keating campaign sign, you saw a Worthington sign. Senmartin used that in his campaign materials, basically saying Keating and Worthington are part of a good-oldboy network of just a few people actually running things in Marathon, that decisions on issues are made behind closed doors outside the sunshine. His slogan: Committed, not connected. Then came the flier. A mysterious mailer was sent out citywide from Key West by someone who hasnt been able to be tracked down, since this person paid for the flier and postage in cash and the mailer had a phony name on it. The language on it appears to violate state elections law. It was traced to former Monroe County Attorney Jim Hendrick, who says he was merely approached to facilitate the flier. No ones been charged. The mailer details Senmartins Code Compliance case for cutting protected trees on his property. He was fined and ordered to plant new trees although not to the extent he cut the previous trees. The cutting was, in our opinion, an egregious offense. But voters apparently felt the flier was more egregious and cowardly since no one would claim responsibility. Keating and Worthington say they had nothing to do with it. Also circulating was a mystery e-mail showing Senmartin with residents who had been convicted of cocaine importation, and listing their crimes and sentences. There was no doubt the intent guilt by association. Senmartin makes no apologies, saying hes been their friend for years and that theyve paid their time in federal prison. None of that prevented a Senmartin landslide; in fact, many say it actually garnered him votes. To us, it seems an obvious response to the stench many residents felt the campaign had taken on. In the days preceding the election, you heard it talked about everywhere in groceries, bars, everywhere. The election is behind us. Tuesday, the City Council chooses a mayor from among its own. Lets hope that unlike the election, this council going forward can work together with only one goal: Making Marathon the best it can be. And lets hope we never see another election like thisNyad to get monumentThe Key West City Commission on Wednesday got on board with City Manager Bob Vitas plan to memorialize endurance athlete Diana Nyads record-breaking Sept. 3 arrival in Key West after a 50-hour swim from Havana, Cuba, with a monument on Smathers Beach. Vitas said city staff would come up with a competition soliciting ideas from interested artists, then leave the selection up the citys Art in Public Places Board. Cost hasnt been determined. Nyad, 64, previously tried the swim four times. She served as grand marshal of the Captain Morgan Fantasy Fest Parade on Oct. 26. We all know how significant it was for the city, Vitas said. Something needs to be done. It cant just be written in the Guinness book somewhere. Michael Shields, chairman of the Art in Public Places board, called Nyads feat an amazing accomplishment. If you were anywhere near that beach on that day, it represented a lifetime of dedication, discipline and genuine commitment. We likewise want to recognize that achievement.Sign task forceThe commission also appointed three of five members to a new historic district task force to address signs in Old Town. The panel is designed to come up with ways to overhaul the citys complex laws regulating commercial signs. The two remaining members will be selected by the Historic Architectural Review Commission and Planning Board, one each from among their respective seven members. Appointed on Wednesday are Waterfront Brewery and The Porch bar co-owner Chris Schultz; Lois Songer, owner of the Impossible Things Bead Emporium and Studio; and Southernmost Signs owner Carl Reid. The task force will consider eight topics: Business vs. brand signs; number of signs per business; new districts for commercial areas; materials; lighting; new definitions; prohibited signs; and a new governing ordinance. Chapter 114 of the citys code addresses sign rules. It describes eight different types of signs including roof signs, marquee signs and banner signs, among others. Prohibitions include placing signs on trees, utility poles, unoccupied buildings, temporary structures, streets and sidewalks. The rule for Duval Street allows two signs per business or three signs for a corner business. The task force sunsets after six months and any changes will be voted on by the commission.KEY WESTPorter puts forth records policyContinuing to adjust how the Monroe County School District handles publicrecords requests, the School Board next week will consider an improvement plan put together by Superintendent Mark Porter. Former Audit and Finance Committee member Larry Murray is the most visible critic of the districts retention and compliance process. Hes fighting the districts estimate of up to $4,400 to fulfill a request he made for e-mails among Porter, Human Resources Director Ramon Dawkins and administrator Christina McPherson over a $10,000 raise McPherson received. At a Tuesday session set for 3:30 p.m. at Marathon High School, Porter will present his ideas on how the district can do better. In his report, Porter calls records response an area of acknowledged concern. A process improvement plan for dealing effectively and efficiently with [records requests] must include addressing improvement in the creation of records, the retention of records, and provision of records for inspection and copying. Specifically Porter writes: It is imperative that all employees understand what does, and what does not constitute a public record. When has a record been created that is thereby subject to retention and recovery, and how to avoid unnecessarily or unintentionally creating public records, particularly e-mails and text messages. Asked if that is tantamount to directing staff to not create a paper trail of their work, Porter said thats not the idea, but rather to exercise greater care and caution as to the use and content of electronic messages. Not solely from the perspective of public records creation but also from the standpoint of easily transmitted and shared information. He called the provision a very common guideline. Presented with the how to avoid language, board member John Dick said, Avoid is the word. Thats like, Lets make a phone call, dont put stuff in email. As a board member, I like it in writing as a record. We know whats happening. Porter will also recommend to the board creating a new full-time job for a public information officer earning between $55,000 and $85,000 annually. He also recommends spending from $25,000 to $75,000, a onetime cost, to scan and retain a backlog of material.Board member: Problem with word avoidOUR SCHOOLS Legacy of unbiased Keys journalism will continue TAMBORRINOBy SEAN KINNEYskinney@keynoter.comBy SEAN KINNEYskinney@keynoter.com

Shirley Gun provides some useful tips, 3BBSports & Outdoors CommunityLifestyle Arts & Entertainment Lady Dolphins battle to a tieThe wheels appeared to be spinning off Wednesday, but the Marathon High School girls soccer team held it together and earned a hard-fought 2-2 tie against visiting Class-3A Doral Academy. Up 1-0 after a Regan Durkin goal at the 31:04 mark of the second half, the Firebirds responded with their best five-minute stretch of play. They pressured the Dolphins (Class1A) and eventually tied the game at 1-1 off a through ball with 26:40 remaining. Just more than a minute later, Marathon freshman Chandler Elliott was ejected after being red-carded for allegedly hitting a Doral player as the two were tangled up away from the ball. Dolphins coach Cindy Durkin said the hit was unintentional. Physical matches are what we like to see. Thats our game, but we dont do it any kind of dirty or unsportsmanlike way, she said. The red card left the Dolphins a man down and the momentum on Dorals side with plenty of time left in the match. But coach Durkin said the Dolphins responded well to the challenge. It motivated the team to fight back and stay tough. Sometimes you play your best when you know youre at a disadvantage, she said. Marathon remained aggressive on offense, forming attacks when it could despite losing Chandler at the forward position. At this point in the season, we need to focus on continuing the attacks, even down a person, the coach said. Were not going to back off a challenge as a team. This was a non-district game for us and so why not? It paid off just two minutes later when co-captain Brandi Spalten was fouled inside the 18-yard box and Marathon was awarded a penalty kick. Regan Durkin converted it to give the Dolphins a 2-1 lead. Once again, the team refused to sit back on the lead a man down to Doral. They continued to play balanced ball, but Doral managed to tie the game when a corner kick deflected in off a player during a scrum in the box at the 19:13 mark. Each team had decent opportunities to take the lead down the stretch, but neither was able to convert. Marathon goalie Samantha Bonilla made several key saves on point-blank scoring chances for the Firebirds. Sammie played beautifully yesterday, coach Durkin said. The Dolphins (2-1-2) controlled the pace of play for much of the first half, but were unable to capitalize on numerous scoring opportunities as the teams took a scoreless tie into the half. We had a lot of opportunities but were struggling with how to close in on them. But were creating them and thats good to see, coach Durkin said. Marathon is scheduled to visit Carrollton School in Miami on Monday at 4 p.m. before hosting District 161A rival Riviera Prep on Wednesday at 4 p.m. Doral gives soccer team big challengeMARATHON GIRLS SOCCER Eight named All-ConferenceCoral Shores and Marathon high schools were well represented on the AllSoutheastern Football Conference football teams released Friday. Hurricanes defensive end, tight end and running back Anthony Rice grabbed the top honor in the South division, as he was named player of the year in addition to being named to the AllConference first team. Both the Canes and Dolphins were founding members of the 16-team league that started in 2012. It has eight-team North and South divisions pitting similarly sized South Florida high schools against one another. Hurricanes joining Rice on the All-Conference first team were offensive lineman Jake Niedbalski, running back George Jacobsen, linebacker Alberto Anderson and defensive back Darren Govan. Niedbalski was also Coral Shores AllConference Academic Team representative. The Canes finished the season with a solid 8-2 record, but were bounced from the conference playoffs by John Carroll Catholic on Oct. 24. They finished the season with a dominating 39-7 win over Archbishop Curley High School last Nov. 3. Its very gratifying to know other coaches think as highly of our players, Canes coach Ed Holly said. The Dolphins finished a tough football season with a 2-8 record, but had three players named to the AllConference team. They are Cooper Chaplin, Max Elliott and Jonathan Rios. Rios was the Dolphins All-Academic representative with a weighted grade point average of 4.38. Coach Lance Martin said Rios, a three-year offensive line starter, used smarts to outweigh his size disadvantage. He will be a huge loss as a team leader, Martin said. He is the model of what a student athlete should be. Chaplin had a better year statistically last season, but Martin said the team asked much more of him on offense as a running back. The senior made the team as a defensive lineman. He gave all he could each game and had an outstanding two seasons at Marathon High. I wish we could have had him more than two years, Martin said. Elliott, also the teams starting quarterback, made the team as a defensive back. He had 22 tackles, 22 assists, two interceptions and one fumble recovery. He plays each snap like it might be his last [and] leaves everything on the field, Martin said.Five Canes, three Fins are honoredPREP ATHLETE HONORSBy RYAN McCARTHYrmccarthy@keynoter.comKeynoter photo by RYAN McCARTHYMarathon High Schools Regan Durkin holds off a defender during a physical Wednesday match against Doral Academy that ended in a 2-2 tie.By RYAN McCARTHYrmccarthy@keynoter.com Lady Conchs open MondayAs the Key West High girls basketball team prepares for its opening game Monday, its new coach is brimming with optimism. With five seniors, we have real potential to go to states, said Shonta McLeod. Were going to work hard and play good defense. Good defense wins games. The Conchs will play Carrollton School of the Sacred Heart in a District 164A game at 5 p.m. Monday at the Bobby Menendez Gym. McLeod, 38, is the ninth Key West girls basketball coach since 2004. She succeeded Tony McDowell, who led the team to a 5-6 record last season before taking over as the boys basketball coach. McLeod was McDowells assistant last season and has been around the program for five years. The Conchs will be led by guard Tanisha Multy, who scored 32 points in a game last season to tie the school record. She should average 20, 25 points, but I also need her for her defense, McLeod said of Multy. Shes the fastest one on the court. Starters returning from last season are Ryann Appleby, who should be the teams top rebounder, and Brooke Marsden, who can shoot from outside. They will be joined by veterans Saria Smith, KaNeya Mims and Sahara Graft. Graft will join the team Monday after competing in the state cross-country meet. Team chemistry, which has never been a strong point in the girls basketball program, is fine, McLeod said: They all get along.

The girls fell behind big in the third quarter Wednesday against Ransom Everglades School, but fought back before dropping a close 41-37 game. On Thursday, the girls easily handled Keys Gate Charter School, 56-29, behind a 22-point, 10rebound effort from JohnNisha Qualls. Coach Deanna Klaus is new to the team this year and prefers a run-and-gun offensive system with a press-style defense. The team is learning on the fly, having had only two weeks of practice before this weeks tournament. Its going to take a while, but theyre playing hard, Klaus said. The unfamiliarity showed on Wednesday, as Klaus said the Dolphins were sluggish and a bit nervous out of the gate Ransom. The team forced shots and shot poorly from the free throw line. We havent had time to perfect anything in two weeks of practice. They dont know my system, but theyre learning fast, she said. Marathon trailed 25-18 at the half and was down 15 at one point in the third quarter before closing the gap. A couple more minutes and we would have won that game, Klaus said. We just missed a ton of free throws. ualls led the Dolphins against the Raiders with 21 points, while Gardine Raymond had 10 and Kenna Wellever four. Yoslyne Conde led the team with nine rebounds, while Qualls had seven steals. Marathon settled down the following night against Knights, cruising to an easy victory. Qualls led with 22 points, while Yailin Nieda had 13, Raymond nine, Wellever seven and Conde four. Nieda led the Dolphins with 13 rebounds, while Qualls had 10, Raymond nine and Selena Gonzalez six.

The doubleheader will begin with the girls game at noon. The boys will play at 2. The Conch girls, after losing, 4-2, to MAST Academy on Monday, with Caila DeAbreu and Julia Passarelli scoring the goals, rebounded Wednesday with an 8-0 victory at Hialeah Miami Lakes in a game that was stopped by the state eight-goal mercy rule.

Mission accomplished, says coach Jim Murphy, whose members of his sizable roster all saw playing time, in multiple positions, during a 5-0 loss to visiting Florida Christian School. We got everybody in and I was able to see everybody play, he said. It gave me a good understanding what we need to do this season. Murphy said hes reviewed the game film from Tuesday several times and that it helped him devise offensive and defensive alignments for a roster full of players new to the program. I figured out what defense we have to run and where we can put some of our top players so that they can touch the ball more than they did in the first game, he said. The Dolphins trailed the Patriots, 3-0, at the half. The first goal came on a wellplaced upper corner shot from the right side of the field near the 18-yard line. The next two goals came on defensive lapses that led to through balls and easy goals for the Patriots. It was more mental mistakes for the next two goals than physical. From a standpoint of the first game, its OK because its something we can fix, Murphy said. Florida Christian added two more goals in the second half, including a penalty kick after a foul inside the 18-yard box. The Dolphins are scheduled to host Riviera Prep on Wednesday, a new addition to their District 16-1A this season.

LivingTime to get those seedlings plantedIts November and time to flex those green fingers once more. In the Keys, planting can start in October, so I finally got my seedlings into my vegetable garden this month. For the past five years, I have had varying degrees of success. Ive tried a raised bed in three different locations, a grow box and assorted containers on the porch that catch all-day sun and prevailing winds, and a discarded wooden box positioned on the sheltered, south side of the house. When the trees and shrubs in my yard were still young, my first years raised bed did really well. The surrounding foliage didnt shade it too much. When the trees grew, it was time to move the bed, twice. This year much to my husbands relief I decided to abandon the raised vegetable bed and concentrate on container gardening. So I was delighted when he offered to build me a three-tier stand for the containers. It looks like a mini version of stadium seating so that each row of containers can catch the sun without being shaded by the plants in the row in front. He used stair risers purchased from Home Depot and secured them with horizontal supports along the back and legs to allow it to be free-standing. Then he secured 8-foot-long boards along each step to make three rows that are 8 feet long and 10 inches deep. I can place several containers along the boards. And since its moveable, I can position the structure wherever it makes sense. Mid-October, I drove up to the Miami Fruit & Spice Park to get my seedlings at the second annual GrowFest. Vendors from around the Redland and Homestead area were selling organic produce and seedlings, and offering advice on plants and growing your own. Three Sisters Farm sold excellent yucca bread as well as seedlings. I had a really interesting, but delicious, jackfruit curry from Hanis Mediterranean for lunch and picked up some Tupelo honey from Miguel Bode. I got my broccoli, gold beets, kale, bell pepper, arugula and tomato seedlings from different vendors, including Bee Heaven Farms. Last weekend, I planted them in a mixture of organic potting soil, cow manure and homemade compost in differentsized containers on my plant stand and positioned it along the sheltered, south side of the house. Now the waiting and nurturing begins. November is also the second annual Key West Film Festival (Nov. 13 to 17). This is especially exciting for me, as the festival has partnered with Green Living & Energy Education, known as GLEE, to screen a showing of Bag It, which focuses on the use of plastics, on Nov. 17 at 11 a.m. at the Tropic Cinema on Eaton Street in Key West. It is a comedy as well as a documentary and admission is free. Members of GLEEs Got Your Bags? Florida Keys group will be in the lobby collecting pledges from folks to skip plastic bags when shopping and use reusable bags as much as possible. In return, they will receive a bag donated by the Key West Film Festival. As a big supporter of reducing waste and litter, I will be there to help spread the message and of course watch the movie.

But of hundreds of witnesses in Dallass Dealey Plaza on Nov. 22, 1963, only a handful managed to record the biggest news story of a generation: The assassination of President John F. Kennedy. And of the documents they produced, only one stands out: The Zapruder film. Its not much: About 6 feet of narrow, cellulose material, containing fewer than 500 grainy images and running just 26 seconds long. And yet the home movie that clothier Abraham Zapruder shot with his Bell & Howell camera may be the single most important piece of evidence in perhaps the most argued-about crime in the nations history. Zapruder was in a unique position to capture the events that day a half-century ago. Standing on a 4-foothigh concrete pedestal, his receptionist bracing him from behind, the 58-yearold Russian immigrant followed the progress of JFKs Lincoln limousine as it rolled toward him down Elm Street. He thought the popping noises he heard were part of some joke, he later told the Warren Commission, and then I saw his head opened up. I started yelling, They killed him, they killed him, he testified before the investigative panel in July 1964. I was still shooting the pictures until he got under the underpass I dont even know how I did it. Tests showed that the camera loaded with Double 8-millimeter Kodachrome II color film recorded at an average speed of 18.3 frames per second. Depending on how much film leader and unexposed black footage are counted, there are either 486 or 487 frames with assassination-related images. Although there was no sound, the Zapruder film allowed investigators and researchers to establish the interval between gunshots. Zapruder had the film developed and three copies made two of which he gave to the Secret Service and FBI. Richard Stolley, then Pacific bureau editor for Life Magazine, had flown in from Los Angeles and reached Zapruder by phone around 11 p.m. The next morning, he was in Zapruders office at Jennifer Juniors Inc., watching the film with two Secret Service agents.Gut-punchedI have to say, seeing that film and seeing the head shot the infamous frame 313 was the most dramatic moment of my career, Stolley recalled in a recent interview. We all reacted as if we had been simultaneously gutpunched. Competitors avidly sought the film, too. But in the end, Stolley won out, giving Life the print rights for $50,000. The magazine paid Zapruder another $100,000 the following week for the remaining copyrights. Aside from some still images, it would be years before the general public saw what Zapruders camera had captured. (Life even withheld frame 313 out of deference to the grieving Kennedy family, Stolley said.)In 1969, about a year before his death, Zapruder testified as to the films authenticity during the New Orleans trial of Clay Shaw, the only person ever prosecuted for the assassination. District Attorney Jim Garrison played the film for the jury 10 times a scene that formed the dramatic crescendo of Oliver Stones 1991 film, JFK. Most Americans did not see the Zapruder film in motion until March 1975, when ABC News aired a copy during Geraldo Riveras weekly Good Night America show. The outcry helped spur formation of the House Select Committee on Assassinations, which would famously conclude that the murder was most likely the result of a conspiracy involving multiple shooters. In April 1975, Time Inc. transferred the original camera print and copyrights back to the Zapruder family. The National Archives and Records Administration agreed to store the film as a courtesy. In 1999, the government agreed to pay Zapruders family more than $16 million for the film. The Sixth Floor Museum in Dallas owns the copyright. The original is now housed at the archives facility in College Park, Md., in a cold-storage vault, where conditions are kept at a constant 25 degrees Fahrenheit and 30 percent relative humidity. On Oct. 22, a technician removed the film from its protective can for its first inspection in 11 years. The reel is in excellent condition, has retained the vivid color typical of Kodachrome, and does not exhibit signs of physical deterioration, NARA spokeswoman Miriam Kleiman wrote in an e-mail to The Associated Press. On Oct. 15, Life released a new book, The Day Kennedy Died. In its pages for the first time, each of the frames is shown, in order.Zapruderfilm: Images as history, pre-smart phone 50 years after assassination, its story toldBy ALLEN G. BREEDAssociated PressHISTORYSymphony returns for 16th seasonThe South Florida Symphony, a unique gathering of professional musicians that began as the Key West Symphony, is set to launch its 2013-14 season its 16th with a concert featuring renowned cellist Clancy Newman. Titled ASoul Unfettered, the performance is set for 8 p.m. Nov. 15 at the Tennessee Williams Theatre, on the College Road campus of Florida Keys Community College on Stock Island. The program is to include Edward Elgars Introduction and Allegro for String Quartet and Strings, featuring the symphonys Blue Door String Quartet; Franz Schuberts Symphony No. 9 in C Major, known as The Great; and Samuel Barbers Cello Concerto in AMinor, Opus 22, featuring Newman. Newman has a dual career as both a performer and composer. He has performed as a soloist in most major American cities, appearing with the National Symphony Orchestra, Juilliard Orchestra and North Carolina Symphony, among others. Also in demand as a recitalist, he has received numerous commissions as a composer, and debuted his Four Pieces for Solo Cello at New York Citys Violoncello Society. For each concert in the South Florida Symphonys season, conductor Sebrina Maria Alfonso brings together eminent musicians from around the country whose talents are complemented by soloists chosen to enhance the specific musical program.

Before each concert, those attending can enjoy a 7:15 p.m. symphony chat with classical pianist and music historian Edward Pitts at the Tennessee Williams Theatre. Prior to the performances each concert week, the symphony is to present free interactive performances for Florida Keys schoolchildren. These enable the students to learn about orchestral music, composers and instruments through the firsthand experience of a live symphonic concert. All Master Series performances in Key West take place at the Tennessee Williams Theatre, with tickets ranging from $25 to $75 per person depending on seat location.

Clients Bill Mercondante his wife Kim had made their way from Pennsylvania to Key West for a much-needed rest from the grind of everyday American capitalism hoping to spend some time out on the water. Bill had looked forward to the day and I felt his excitement in our phone conversations leading up to the trip. He was a fisherman to the core, and Kim loves the water and was game for the trip even in 3to 5-foot seas. Their friends Bob and Kathy were invited along and had made special considerations the night before to offset the chances of seasickness during the offshore fishing trip. Fishing the more animated seas of fall and winter in the Florida Keys takes extra planning in regard to possible seasickness. Be good to yourself the night before. Prepare yourself. Rest is important the day prior to an offshore session of heavy seas and wind, especially on a boat that burns diesel fuel. The mixture of the tossing waves plus the diesel-permeated breeze will put you in a quick state of seasickness if you are tired or suffering from the over-consumption of anything the day before, including spicy foods and alcohol. The so-called Duval Flu in Key West is one of the biggest reasons people become ill. We mention the affliction on every discussion prior to the scheduled charter but we find the rate of success is just 50 percent for first-timers but close to 80 percent after the guests have experienced the effects of seasickness at least once due to their choices the day prior. Once you're seasick, you'll never forget what it feels like. Some people are susceptible to seasickness regardless and have to take something for it every time they venture offshore. Medications. There are many different types of over-the-counter medications from which to choose. We have seen all of them work in varying degrees, including the sniff sticks. Some seasickness medications will make you drowsy and others will make you dizzy, at least based on the feedback we get. In one case, our client actually became seasick after the charter from wearing his ear patch on land. He forgot to take it off and while out on the town, he came down with the same symptoms he would have felt in rough seas. When he pulled the patch off, the ailment cleared. Most success stories include taking oral medications the night before and then again in the morning prior to departure. Always check with your doctor when taking seasickness remedies with other medications. Stay out of the cabin. Any enclosed area on a larger vessel out of the breeze and the sight of the horizon can put you into a green coma. The look on the face of a person that just realized he or she is seasick is always recognizable as they emerge from the cabin. It's not pretty. We have been known to scramble and pull anchor quickly after witnessing one of these faces. It'll get you moving quick to save the experience, much like a Hail Mary in a football game. Not only will the person who is ill have a bad day, he or she may never want to go again. Not going out on the ocean for fear of seasickness is a tragedy. I wouldn't want it for anyone. We monitor the situation throughout the day and continually adjust. With a northerly wind, moving closer to the beach will calm the seas somewhat or we can start the Key West Harbor portion of the trip to flatten the seas completely. Rarely have we had to cut a trip short due to an intolerable case. With all that said, Bill, Kim, Bob and Kathy are ready to fish. With all of the weather facts and sea conditions explained, our team for the day boarded the Premium Time at the A&B Marina in Key West to experience the incredible fishery they had heard so much about. Starting at the nearshore patch reefs in comfortable 2to 4-foot seas set the tone, but fishing was lackluster. When asked, they all agreed to go further offshore into the bigger seas. At the reef edge, the seas picked up, going to 3 to 5 feet with an occasional 6foot wave, forcing a few of the passengers to yell in unison, "Hang on!" One thing was apparent on arrival -the bite was on. Ballyhoo had invaded the cap rock and everything was attacking the schools; total pandemonium was already happening. Yellowtail snapper, mutton snapper, yellowjacks, barracuda and cero mackerel were in full feeding mode, much to the delight of the guests, which was clearly expressed by the hooting and hollering from them as they reeled in fish. They had a blast. Even with rough seas and windy conditions, the day turned out to be a smashing success. Capt.

Windy? No problemBill Mercondante shows one of the jacks he landed on the outing with his wife and two friends.Bokor takes the RedboneBuffalo, N.Y., angler Jim Bokor Jr. released two bonefish and four redfish to win grandchampion honors at the Robert James Sales Redbone Celebrity Fishing Tournament that ended Nov. 3 in Islamorada. Guided by Capt. Jared Raskob of Islamorada, Bokor won on accumulated points, earning bonus points for scoring two redbones (redfish and bonefish) that put him on top. Bokor also won the 2013 Redbone Trilogy award of a Redbone Series Championship ring after amassing the most points of any angler who competed in each of three Keysbased tournaments the Robert James Sales S.L.A.M., Baybone and Redbone. Miamis Carmen PerezPadron paired up with Islamorada resident Linda Denkert to earn the team grand-championship title, tallying 23 redfish and 2 bonefish. The duo fished with Islamoradas Capt.

Former astronaut Bruce Melnick released six redfish to be named celebrity grand champion. A resident of New Port Richey, Melnick fished with Capt. Jesse Atkins. Eighty-two anglers on 41 boats released 232 redfish and 17 bonefish during the two-day Redbone tournament, which for more than 25 years has been a major fundraiser for the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation.ISLAMORADA FISHING Carmen Perez-Padron (left) and Capt.
