NO MORE FISHINGAgents wreck van during Obamas visitA burgeoning new scandal over drunkenness or tawdry behavior among Secret Service officers traveling with President Obama is partly rooted in a traffic crash in Islamorada earlier this month involving two of the agencys men. The Secret Service agents, both counter-sniper officers, wrecked their rental car while pulling out of a grocery store parking lot into the path of a fully loaded Publix grocery truck about 2 a.m. March 7, according to the Florida Highway Patrol. A trooper detected a slight odor of alcohol on the agent driving the car, according to the FHP report. But after no detection of impairment was observed during a sobriety test, the trooper decided not to give him a Breathalyzer or blood test, just a ticket for failure to yield the right of way. The accident report does not say whether the Secret Service agents identified themselves as such to the trooper.The wreck occurred about 12 hours before Obama arrived in South Florida for a speech at Miamis Coral Reef Senior High School and a visit to the Ocean Reef Club in North Key Largo, about 35 miles north of the accident site, where he had a brief vacation. News of the accident and the tension it triggered inside the Secret Service, which was still unsettled after a series of 2012 incidents with prostitutes and booze in Cartagena, Colombia, triggered the removal of 10 agents didnt leak out at the time.But it emerged Thursday in a Washington Post story in the wake of disclosures that three Secret Service agents were yanked home from a presidential trip to the Netherlands last weekend after one of them was found passed out in a hotel hallway after a night of hard drinking. The new reports of Secret Service misadventures have triggered growing concern among congressional overseers of the agency, particu-Its one in string of controversies for Secret ServiceBy CHARLES RABIN, GREG GORDON and GLENN GARVINMiami HeraldUPPER KEYSReport: $300,000 gone from rentalsAs many as 200 clients of the late Morgan Hills Florida Keys Rentals business will receive an unsettling letter in the coming days.Penned by interim broker Jorg Gobel, who offered his brokers license to help agents transition out of Hills Exit Realty franchises in Marathon and on Big Pine Key, the letter mailed Friday morning alludes to an estimated $300,000 in money due property owners and agents that cant be accounted for.Gobel wrote that Hill and her longtime life and business partner, Paula Nardone, used money from rental business accounts to finance their business endeavors and personal lives. The figure is around $300,000, Gobel said. They robbed Peter to pay Paul, said Gobel, a former Exit Realty executive director and IT consultant. He has a consulting company in Broward County. Both the rental business and real estate offices closed and their web pages were taken down following Hills death at her Marathon home on March 19. Nardone died in February 2013. Gobel said he discovered the financial discrepancies after instructing Exit staff to prepare a quick inventory of how much money was in the accounts and who was entitled to how much. The result of that inventory was shocking to say the least, he wrote in the letter. Gobel said Friday that the $300,000 estimate is a combination of money vacationers paid as much as 60 days in advance for upcoming rentals, money that would have been paid the rental owners at the conclusion of March rentals, and the companys management fees.In addition, Gobel said that Hill and Nardone were taking long-term rental money in escrow accounts, that being rent and security deposits for 180-plus day rentals.Which is a 100 percent no-no for any broker, Gobel said. It goes into escrow and cant be touched by the owners, the tenants or the holders of the escrow accounts.Gobels letter says the amount of checks that had gone out for Februarys owner payments was not fullyBroker says Hill, Nardone siphoned off the moneyBy RYAN McCARTHYrmccarthy@keynoter.comMIDDLE KEYS Panel hears: No more closed areasA push to create a new no-take zone at an Upper Keys reef site called Snapper Ledge failed to find much traction with a Florida Keys National Marine Sanctuary working group Wednesday.Volunteer members of the Ecosystem Protection panel seemed to like the idea of eliminating a marginal Sanc tuary Preservation Area more than creating a new one.Sanctuary Preservation Areas, or SPAs, are basically special-use areas for divers only, said Ben Daughtry, a commercial tropical-fish collector on the panel. I think there are enough of those already. Concerned divers first proposed Snapper Ledge as a new SPA in 2008, citing the large schools of fish there. Formal consideration was put off until the sanctuarys management plan undergoes its first major update since 1997.

Story, 3AJury convicts Hedvall of murderAfter deliberating Thurs day night, a 12-person Monroe County jury found Peter Erik Hedvall guilty of second-degree murder in the killing of Jonathan Alvarado during Fantasy Fest in 2011.Prosecutors were going for a conviction on firstdegree premeditated murder, though not the death penalty. Still, Hedvall, 28, faces up to life in prison and a minimum sentence of 16 years, according to State Attorney Catherine Vogel.She called it a very good verdict. The jury convicted Hedvall of murdering Alvarado, who was 32 and a former waiter, on Oct. 28, 2011. Alvarado was found dead under a truck at 1019 Grinnell St. The Monroe County Medical Examiners Office ruled the death came from blunt trauma to the head, likely with a rock found nearby the body. During the trial, which started with jury selection on March 17, assistant Monroe County State Attorney Val Winter said Alvarado was in the wrong place at the wrong time. Police say the night of the killing, witnesses at Dons Million Dollar Bar, close to where Alvarados body was found, saw the victim wearing angel wings and Hedvall was seen in a light-colored suit. Both were costumes for the annual 10-day Fantasy Fest bacchanal.Some of Alvarados blood was found on Hedvalls clothing through DNA testing, which apparently is largely what the jury convicted on. No motive was ever proffered.Winter said Hedvall strangled Alvarado before bashing his head with a 25pound coral rock. I want to emphasize again two different types of attacks: The blow to Jonathans head shattered his skull. Defense attorney Jason Smith had maintained Hedvalls innocence, saying if the jury convicted Hedvall, it would compound [Alvarados death] with another tragedy of convicting an innocent man. He maintained the prosecution was built upon sloppy, incomplete police work and called the states case circumstantial. A sentencing date hasnt been set.Alvarados killer faces up to lifeBy SEAN KINNEYskinney@keynoter.comIN THE COURTS HEDVALL
way but is months from the finish line.The Ecosystem Protec tion working group, essentially a committee of the Sanctuary Advisory Council, has been assigned the most controversial aspect of the update: Reviewing the existing network of the Keys sanctuarys marine managed areas, where most fishing and collecting is banned.Group members convened Tuesday and Wednesday at the Hilton Key Largo Resort to review Upper Keys managed areas and other possible rule changes.We did not settle 100 percent of anything, member Chris Bergh said as the session closed with no formal votes.Final recommendations from the board are expected to be made at a July 1-2 meeting in Marathon, following local meetings to look at Middle Keys and Lower Keys areas.On Wednesday, the Eco system Protection group reached general consensus on a recommendation for altering boundaries at the Carysfort SPA off North Key Largo.Panel members agreed to add a no-take area for a deepwater spot known as a spawning site for black grouper, while moving the SPAs shoreward line to allow fishing in shallower water.Members had problems with a suggestion to ban anchoring in all SPAs to further protect corals from damage. If approved, boats would be limited to using available mooring buoys or tying off other boats.A buoy-only rule would harm Keys dive boats whose crews know how to anchor properly, said diver Joe Weatherby of Key West. Sea conditions occasionally require commercial boats to congregate at reefs less affected by the weather, he said.Im hesitant to use the amount of mooring buoys to regulate how many people can be on the reef, Weatherby said. Members said without adding more buoys, enforcement officers should more strictly enforce existing laws against allowing anchors to damage coral. Its the googans in massive loads who are throwing hooks on the reef, Daughtry said.Snapper Ledge, a relatively small area near Pickles Reef, is known as one of few notable Upper Keys reefs where fishing and spearfishing is allowed. Its dense fish population prompted the call for protection.Now is the time for consideration as a new SPA, Bergh said.Several Ecosystem Protec tion members said Snapper Ledge should remain open to all or closed to all.If its such a diamond, shut it down, said fishing guide Tab Burke. No more SPAs.Weatherby said he hears real debate about how effective SPAs are when divers who may damage coral are allowed but fishermen are not. It seems more like a halfbaked political solution.With some members backing the new SPA, no consensus was found on Snapper Ledge so it likely will come up again. The Davis Reef SPA was suggested as a candidate for losing its no-take protection since the degraded area now sports relatively few healthy corals. If we were starting over, why would we have a SPA here? asked Suzy Roebling. The sanctuary should consider getting rid of [protected areas] that dont mean much to the marine environment, Weatherby said. After hearing Davis Reef is targeted for a coralrestoration effort, the group dropped discussion of eliminating its SPA.During public comment, several commercial fishermen urged the group to not create any new no-take areas. Trying to fish under these conditions, its hard for the younger [commercial] guys, said Gary Sands. Whos going to protect them?The Ecosystem Protec tion working group has meetings planned:April 17 and 18 at the Marathon Garden Club.June 10 and 11 at the Florida Keys Eco-Discovery Center in Key West.July 1 and 2 at the Marathon Garden Club.The full Sanctuary Advisory Council will consider the working groups proposals later this summer, and make its recommendations to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration.Any changes eventually approved after a required environmental-impact statement probably will not take effect until sometime in 2016.

Board members didnt return calls for comment, but college spokeswoman Amber Ernst-Leonard said by increasing the number of trustees, we increase the pool of invaluable knowledge and insight that each contributes toward the governance of the college. She said more trustees would also help with distribution of committee work and trustee membership on direct-support organizations, like the colleges fundraising foundation and housing board. The Legislature created the college but Florida law allows the board to decide on expansion. If thats the road it takes, Gov. Rick Scott would have to appoint two new members to fouryear terms.

OMALLEY Jonathan OMalley 33, of Key Largo, left our world on March 18, 2014. Born into commercial fishing, Jon had a never-ending love for boats and the sea. He grew up on Grassy Key and attended Stanley Switlik Elementary before finishing school in Cordele, Georgia. In 2004, Jon entered the military to serve his country. Upon release to civilian life, he moved to Navarre in the Florida panhandle and became a jack-of-all-trades. He spent some time commercial fishing, learned to set tile, worked for an eco-electric company and helped his dad build a boat. He returned to the Keys in 2011 and was a chef at Mrs. Macs 2 and Tasters restaurants. He recently completed Bartending School, loved to play pool at Sharkeys and fished when he could. Jon was preceded in death by grandparents, Frank Oldham, Bernie and Loretta Gigliotti, and uncle Les Brown.

South Atlantic Fishery Management Council staff will use information from the community port meetings as part of its visioning for long-range planning. About three-fourths of the dozens of species managed by the South Atlantic Council fall under the snapper-grouper plan, from grunts to Goliath grouper. The council wants people to feel they do have a voice in how the fishery will look 10 to 15 years from now, coordinator Amber VonHarten has said. The meetings are planned to be more conversational than regular council meetings or hearings. Port meetings will be held from 4 to 6 p.m.:Monday at the Gato Building, 1100 Simonton St., Key West.Tuesday at Keys Fisheries, 3502 Gulf View Ave. (down 35th Street bayside) in Marathon.Wednesday at Key Largo Fisheries, 1313 Ocean Bay Drive in Key Largo.

Keynoter StaffMarina might require boat pump-outA proposed Key West law would require liveaboard boaters who use the citys dinghy dock at the Historic Seaport to show proof of a recent sewage pump-out of their vessel. The rationale is that because Monroe County provides free pump-out service for vessels anchored in unincorporated county waters Key West waters are off limits for anchoring so all the affected vessels are in county jurisdiction theres no reason not to. In an executive summary of the proposal, Key West Bight Manager Mark Tait says there is no excuse for anchored vessels in unincorporated Monroe County not to pump out.Key West waters are designated as a no-discharge zone.The county contracts with Pump Out USA to provide pump-out service at no cost to boaters. The County Commission approved the contract in 2012. In 2013, it cost the county $340,200 for 8,419 pump-outs at a cost of $40.41 per pumpout, according to records from the Monroe County Clerks Office.In his report, Tait writes that dinghies from anchored vessels will not be allowed to dock at the Key West Bight dinghy dock or two-hour courtesy dock unless the owner can show proof that his or her anchored vessel [receives] regular pump-out.Dinghy-dock access is $80 per month or $6 per day. Proof of pump-out is either a receipt from the past two weeks or the more common sticker Pump Out USA provides regular customers. Tait said the process would start when dinghy owners request dockage at the bight office. The owner would have to show proof of sewage pump-out before receiving a dock agreement. Theres an allowance for only one non-conforming day of dockage. After that, there would be a verbal warning followed by the dinghy being impounded. The advisory Key West Bight Management District Board approved the proposed law on Jan. 15. In 2008 the Historic Seaport was designated by the state Department of Environmental Protection a clean marina based on state-outlined practices. Liveaboard boaters can set up service with Pump Out USA by calling (305) 900-0263.The City Commission meets Tuesday at 6 p.m. in Old City Hall on Greene Street.No proof, no use of city docksBy SEAN KINNEYskinney@keynoter.comKEY WESTlarly because they come after a no tolerance policy on partying was declared by Secret Service Director Julia Pierson. The most recent incident with the Secret Service shows that the agency has to deal with some in its ranks who fail to respect the important job the agency is tasked with, said Sen. Charles Grassley, ranking Republican on the Senate Judiciary Committee. I appreciate the swift action by Director Pierson, but it looks like shes still got work to do to regain the trust of the American people.Secret Service spokes man Brian Leary declined to comment on details of the incident in Amsterdam except to say that three employees were sent home for disciplinary reasons. Of the Islamorada crash, he said that two U.S. Secret Service personnel were involved.They were not on duty at the time, he said. Out of an abundance of caution, they were returned home to [Washington], D.C., be cause of contact with police, pending police and traffic investigations. The FHP report identifies the two agents as Matthew Kyle Reyes, 27, of Woodbridge, Va., who was driving, and Kevin Sedlak, 51, of Elkridge, Md. The Publix driver was Nicolas Quintana Llarena of Miami. None could be reached Thursday for comment. The accident occurred as the Secret Service agents vehicle, a Dodge Caravan rented from the Avis Budget Group, tried to pull across U.S. 1 from the Trading Post, a small grocery, to the chic Cheeca Lodge in Islamorada. The agents vehicle did not have its headlights on. The truck was traveling about 35 mph, setting off the airbags in the agents vehicle, according to the report. The car was damaged so badly that it had to be towed away the next morning. The FHP estimated damage of at least $10,000. Elizabeth Jacocks, owner of the grocery store, said the agents told her employees that they were buying supplies for a fishing trip. A federal law enforcement official who declined to speak for the record said a Secret Service investigation concluded that the agents did not violate an agency rule barring alcohol consumption during the 10 hours before a work shift.Agents car is wreckedFrom Secret, 1A CALLCLASSIFIEDS743-5551
covered by monies in the bank. He said Friday that shortfall is roughly $11,000.I think it would have come out within a month or two because the way I understand it is we were in a slow period, so there was not enough monies in the accounts anymore, Gobel said. Its not a Ponzi scheme, but it definitely looks like one. Marathon attorney Tom Wright said thats exactly what it looks like and said hes already gotten calls from clients who had their property being managed by Florida Keys Rentals. I dont know where its going to end up, but its truly a mess. Well only know the degree as we move forward, he said. Ponzi schemes always collapse under their own weight at some point.Wright acknowledged hearing rumors in advance of Gobel sending his letter out but wasnt clear on the severity of the situation. He said it appears there could be little recourse for affected property owners.Theyre saying theres no assets or hope for recovery and that no one else has the right to write checks, he said.Gobel wrote in his letter that only Hill had signatory power on the rental accounts. He also wrote in his letter that all buildings and other assets of [Nardone and Hill] are owned by a trust and are heavily indebted. That includes their Marathon home and Marathon and Big Pine real estate offices. Foreclosure procedures have been started already for a while by the credit givers for every single [one] of them, Gobel wrote.Ava Bianchino was a longtime Exit Realty Realtor whos filling in at the Middle and Lower Keys Association of Realtors before its new executive director starts next week.She said the trade group moved about five or six agents into new companies this week. They have to come through us to move their license; we just dont handle any rental issues. I am one of the people affected and left. I am more than taken back by that letter, Bianchino added. Its a shame because she did so much for the community. Id really like to see it investigated before I know its true. According to Key Colony Beach City Clerk Cathy Henninger, several vacation rental property owners asked the city about hiring new rental managers. We have about 20 properties here that had been people working with Exit. One by one, those different individuals are notifying us of a new property manager. Normally theres a transfer fee [$78], but due to the circumstances, weve decided it would be waived, she said.Hill and Nardone were a well-known real estate tandem for more than 30 years. They began with Century 21, often attaining that companys Centurion performance award. In 2000, they branched out on their own, opening Exit Realty and launching the rental business. Both were well known for their charitable efforts, and Hill was a member of the Marathon Planning Commission from 2004 through 2013. The Boys and Girls Club of the Lower Keys and Key West served around 400 children in 2013, but the organization is without a permanent home. Now, the Boys and Girls Club splits time between Bayview Park and the gymnasium at the former Glynn Archer Elementary School, both in Key West. The former school is now a construction site, Executive Director Dan Dombroski said, because the Monroe County School District gave the building to the city for renovation as a new city hall. Demolition began this month. Obviously were going to have to move, Dombroski said. Weve been promised we can use the Reynolds School. Thats another School District-building, at United and Reynolds streets in Old Town, that hasnt been used for more than a year. Were going to get them into the Reynolds School, said School Board member John Dick, the Boys and Girls Club treasurer. Im trying to get it done as soon as possible. The district has to move some of their stuff out so they can get in. Dick and Dombroski hope that can be completed well ahead of summer, when the daily participation goes from around 85 kids to around 130. It has been a very slow process with the School District, Dombroski said. He gave the City Commission a breakdown of what the Boys and Girls Club did last year with its approximately $550,000 annual budget. Your support allowed us to remain open for 274 days during the last calendar year, he said, and serve 50,000 free snacks and 30,000 free lunches. Youve helped us provide a safe place for our kids to go in the afternoon. Most of the Boys and Girls Club budget comes from the national organization and fees from participating families. The city kicks in around $15,000 each year. The Boys and Girls Club provides academic tutoring, arts and crafts, computer access, life-skills lessons, recreation, field trips and community service. Unsubsidized local rates are $90 per week in the summer and $50 per week during the school year. Dombroski said demographic research done by his group indicates 60 percent of parents whose children use the Boys and Girls Club are employed in tourism-related jobs earning an average of $24,000 annually. More than 3 million children nationwide participate. Part-time Key West resident Gary Salyer just donated a 1996 Pontiac to the Keys group. Dombroski said it would be used for runs to the grocery store and taking kids to doctor appointments.

Vinyard Jr. said in a prepared statement. The safety of our park and trail visitors, however, has to come first. The U.S. 1 traffic bridges at the same locations are not affected.The closure affects four bridges built as part of the Florida East Coast Railway a century ago that are now considered part of the Florida Keys Overseas Heritage Trail.Closed indefinitely are the fishing and hiking piers at:Little Duck Key-Miss ouri Historic Bridge, mile marker 39.5.Ohio-Missouri Historic Bridge, mile marker 39.Ohio-Bahia Honda Historic Bridge, mile marker 38.5. Lower Sugarloaf Channel Bridge, mile marker 15.8. Thats not good news. Those are very popular bridges to fish, said James Millsaps, owner of Jigs Bait and Tackle on Big Pine Key. I send people there every day.A December structural survey of the old bridges conducted by the state Department of Transportation found major structural deficiencies, said DEP spokeswoman Mara Burger.DOT recommended immediate closure of the four bridges, she said. After a meeting Wednesday with Monroe County and DEP officials, the closure notice was issued.Its serious, based on the photographs we saw, Monroe County Commissioner George Neugent said Friday.Support beams holding up the bridge deck have deteriorated to the point where its clearly unsafe for anyone to be out there, Neugent said. Its basically the same thing that happened at the Old Seven Mile Bridge. Initial repair costs for the four bridges were estimated at $15 million, Neugent said. And nobody has that in their budget.The department recognizes that [the] Florida Keys Overseas Heritage Trail is the pathway to Paradise, and in no way do we want to diminish access to this beautiful area, Burger said. However, safety is our priority.Five years ago, three of the now-closed spans were blocked for concrete repairs, resurfacing and other improvements as part of the hiking and bicycling trail. This is especially discouraging since we all do so much to encourage visitors to come and participate in all the fantastic things the Lower Keys have to offer, said Steve Miller, president of the Lower Keys Chamber of Commerce. Once you start talking about structural integrity, its tough to argue.Structural deficiencies cited as reasonLOWER KEYSBy KEVIN WADLOWSenior Staff Writer email@example.comConsultant: Bring ambulances in-houseThe Key West City Com mission on Tuesday will hear from a consultant who recommends bringing ambulance service in the city in-house to the city Fire Department.The commission meets Tuesday at 6 p.m. in Old City Hall on Greene Street. Harold Cohen, a consultant with TriData Division, System Planning Corp. of Arlington, Va., will present his recommendations. Foremost among his findings: The city of Key West should, as quickly as possible, take control of [emergency medical services], including emergency ambulance transportation. Cohen says in a report hell bring to the commission Tuesday that if the city decides to have the Fire Department provide ambulance service rather than continue to contract it out, the expected start-up cost would be around $650,000, which includes the purchase of ambulances. He says operations costs would be about $1.5 million annually.Care/American Ambulance, formerly Lifestar, replaced American Medical Response in Key West in 2011 at no cost to the city. Care/American expected to make money by directly billing people it transports.When American Medical Response had the city contract, the city paid it $650,000 a year, largely based on uncollectible ambulance rides for homeless people.The Care/American contract expires Tuesday and the commission has already voted to pay the company $45,000 per month for up to a year until a transition can take place, either to the Fire Department or another forprofit company. The Fire Department has a staff of 72 and an annual budget of $7.35 million. To bring 911 response in-house, Cohen projects the need for an additional 19 staff members (one EMS manager and 18 paramedic/firefighters) and an increase in the annual earmark to $8.925 million.In 2012, Care/American responded to 5,388 calls. Using that figure, Cohen projected different collection rates against expected expenses.With a 60 percent collection rate, the city would lose $364,169 each year in what he calls a worst-case scenario. The best-case scenario is an 80 percent collection rate, which would earn the city $14,696.Very few 911 EMS systems are profitable, Cohen wrote. The goal is to provide fast, effective and efficient EMS service. EMS transportation profit comes from nonemergency transportation.Thats called inter-facility transportation in the industry. Care/American managers have said they will continue that component of their business regardless of what happens with the emergency ambulance service.Care/American contract ends this TuesdayBy SEAN KINNEYskinney@keynoter.comKEY WESTBoys and Girls Club looking for homeFor now, its moving over to Reynolds SchoolBy SEAN KINNEYskinney@keynoter.comOUR YOUTH Keynoter photo by SEAN KINNEYThe Boys and Girls Club in Key West serves around school-age children each day during the school year at Bayview Park, seen here this week, and at the former Glynn Archer Elementary School.

Venita Garvin, CEO Monroe County Domestic Abuse ShelterDonnellys a role modelIve not frequented your opinion page so please indulge me, as Im compelled to share with your readers a tidbit of information concerning John Donnelly of Key Largo. Ive witnesses this unassuming giant breathe life into the broken hearts and shattered dreams of beaten-down and impoverished individuals suffering from all manner of infliction. Since the ravages of Hurricane Andrew, he has continued feeding and clothing the homeless and addicted citizens living in downtown Miami. As he picked me up for treatment during a terrible illness, the remnants of food and clothing from the previous nights run up to the mainland remained in his truck. I thought he had long ago discontinued this philanthropic operation.In the recent past, John used me as a sounding board for the briefs he wrote concerning the states attempt to execute a man that he believed to be innocent. I really dont know what to make of him. He got hold of investigations, sworn statements, depositions and all manner of evidence the state was using to send this man to his death. John believed these documents proved his innocence. It took him three years to convince the powers that be that he was correct.Since that time, this wrongfully charged has been released. He graduated with honors from one of our nations top vocational colleges. He was returned to his twin sons. He now works for a prestigious corporation and operates his own business.It has been my good fortune to be privy to the guidance and counseling John provides to people released from prison who are struggling to reintegrate themselves back into society. Military veterans who are battling the disease of addiction frequently make their way to him. They trust him and respect his ability to arrive at solutions for their shattered lives.Accompanying John on some of his missions, Ive witnessed the spontaneity and depth of this mans generosity. He brings light where there is darkness and love where there is hate. Harold Schulman Key LargoAuction sets a recordOn March 2, the Key Colony Beach Community Association had its annual Key Colony Beach Day. Thousands of people enjoyed free parking, more than 80 vendors, four groups of entertainers and lots of good old-fashioned fun. Our silent auction was highly popular and most of the people attending found time to visit Marble Hall and bid on donated items. This year, the auction set new records. More than 175 local merchants donated to the cause and there were more than 325 individual items to bid on. The proceeds will be donated back to the local community over the coming months. In recent years, our donations helped fund many programs in the Middle Keys. These include to support to Keys Area Interdenominational Resources, Take Stock in Children, the Zonta Club of Marathon, Independence Cay, the Domestic Abuse Shelter, Health Start, the Relay for Life, Marathon Shriners, Heron Peacock Assisted Living, Veterans of Foreign Wars and Grace Jones Day Care Center. In past years we provided scholarships for Marathon High School graduates, Fund-a-Classroom, the Stanley Switlik Elementary School summer recreation program and Marathon Fire Rescue. We also maintain a reserve fund to provide direct support to families devastated by hurricanes. This letter is to thank the Keynoter for its generous donation of advertising space. Maureen Quinn Key Colony BeachOur local leaders often discover ways to make things too complicatedThere are many famous junctions in the world.There is picturesque Grand Junction, Colo., one of the most popular mountain biking destinations in the country.There are Spaghetti Junctions, what we sometimes call massively intertwined traffic interchanges that, thankfully, are nowhere near us here. Then theres Dysfunction Junction. This junction isnt real; rather its a sick, broken state that derails us, costs us money or otherwise cheapens our lives. Theres family dysfunction. We all know or have a family member that tests the limits of family harmony. Theres team dysfunction. Look at last years Miami Dolphins with the Bullygate scandal. That lockerroom disconnect shone a light on a coaching staff that had lost control of the team and rendered a blemish still being discussed today. And theres government dysfunction. Many would argue that the Affordable Care Act is the greatest and most recent example of government dysfunction but truthfully, that type of dysfunction has been present in national government for years. In the Keys we dont have to look far to see our own examples of government dysfunction. Just this week, we learned the Key West City Commission needlessly agreed to pay $45,000 monthly for contracted ambulance service that could have been avoided. On top of that, city leaders are passing the buck, not wanting to assume responsibility for such an egregious oversight. A week and a half ago, Key West Mayor Craig Cates and City Commisioner Tony Yaniz got into yet another public, disturbing war of words and opinions. The Marathon city government dysfunction ranges from not being able to agree on prayer before City Council meetings to firings and re-hirings, to more misspent money. In Islamorada, the Village Council is considering spending more than $50,000 to study why a heretofore unknown place called East Islamorada is the most deadly place in the Keys. The premise of the state Department of Health study that made the grim discovery ignores Islamoradas aging population and the glaring fact that the area in question has a convalescent center, where people likely die a lot. When we elect our leaders, we expect a certain amount of accountability, competence and skill representing our communitys needs. Heck, if that werent true, anyone could mismanage it just fine, and probably for far less money.Lets demand better people, better processes and better ways to run our municipalities. Look at the refreshing example shown last week when city, county and state Department of Transportation leaders functioned like they should and passed a terrific Old Seven Mile Bridge renovation deal. That should be the norm, not the exception.Because at the end of the day, we choose our leaders, we pay their salaries and we expect the best decisions when it comes to our community. We dont have to look far to see our own examples of government dysfunction. Noise law heard againThe Key West City Commission on Tuesday holds a second, and potentially binding, public hearing on changes to how noise and music are regulated in the city.Commissioners passed the first of two required readings on March 18 after nearly two hours of public comment both for and against increased enforcement of rules regulating music coming from bars. The new ordinance has lingered for months as city staff worked with musicians, business owners and Old Town residents to pinpoint decibel thresholds and standards for measurement. The most recent version of the law has Code Compliance officers measuring sound levels from the property line in question on two decibel scales, A and C, the latter incorporating measurements of amplified bass. Jim Young, the citys senior code compliance manager, told commissioners his staff had been visiting downtown bars in an effort to refine the decibel thresholds. Music or other sound under 85 dBA or 94 dBC is OK. If its louder, the violator gets three warnings before facing a fine up to $500. Complaints cant be initiated anonymously and can come from code staff or the city manager. Weve had a chance to go out and run some more tests, Young said, to actually hear the decibels on both of the scales. The highest we got was 92.2 dBC.There are different guidelines for residential areas that incorporate decibel thresholds plus discretionary language that allows for a violation if the sound is deemed unreasonable and excessive.Clinton Curry told the commission at a previous hearing said that language may be too vague. What is reasonable to one person is certainly not reasonable to another.John Vagnoni, manager of the Green Parrot bar on Whitehead Street, said complaints coming from outside the immediate area of a noise source create ambiguity.How do they know if theyre complaining about the Green Parrot? Are [code officers] going to go to every other bar within five blocks also...or am I going to be the only one singled out? he asked.Jim Gilleran, owner of the 801 Bourbon bar, said its about compromise. Sounds can adversely affect people.Street artist Patrick Stecher pointed out the complexity of the law. We need to have rules that we can follow.The commission meets at 6 p.m. in Old City Hall on Greene Street.By SEAN KINNEYskinney@keynoter.comKEY WESTAuto-tag prices droppingAn expected price drop in registration fees could save money for the owners of about 73,000 cars, trucks and motorcycles registered in Monroe County. Both the Florida Senate and House of Represent atives easily passed cuts in registration fees this week. On Wednesday, the bill was sent to Gov. Rick Scott for signing, who said he would do so and has made reducing tag fees part of his re-election campaign. The impact of this meaningful tax relief will be felt by Florida families throughout the state for years to come, bill sponsor Sen. Joe Negron (R-Stuart) said in a prepared statement.The owners of most average-size cars are expected to save from about $19 to $25 annually under the plan, expected to take effect Sept. 1.Base car and truck registration fees are based on vehicle weight, now running from $19.50 for small cars to $44 for large cars. Base fees for cars, trucks and motorcycles will roll back to the amount collected in 2009, before prices were hiked to cover budget shortfalls in the economic downturn. For instance, a 2012 Dodge Charger that weighs 3,961 pounds will pay $32.50 per year rather than $44. The owner of a compact car like the Hyundai Accent will pay $14.50 rather than $19.50. Motorcycle registrations drop from $13.50 to $10. A series of other state fees added to the tag renewal cost for all vehicles have been slashed. Senate Bill 156 reduces those surcharges by about $13.50, from more than $20 to the new cost of about $7.Figures for Monroe County vehicle registrations in fiscal year 2010-11, the last year for which numbers are available, showed 72,542 cars registered in Monroe County, down from 84,842 registered in 2004-05.The fee cuts are expected to remove about $396 million in revenue from the Florida state budget. The $2.50 in registration fees paid to the Monroe County Tax Collectors Office for processing have not been changed.Senate, House pass bill, send to Scott to signSTATE LEGISLATURE By KEVIN WADLOWSenior Staff Writer email@example.comLower fees could save money for about 73,000 vehicle owners.
The state House Finance and Tax Subcommittee rolled out a wide-ranging economic development package on Wednesday that would give shoppers four holidays when no sales taxes are paid on certain items. When tied to the alreadyapproved elimination of the 2009 vehicle registration fee hike, the House plan reaches Gov. Rick Scotts electionyear request for $500 million in cuts to taxes and fees.The committee measure (PCB 14-05) would establish a 12-day sales-tax holiday in June for some hurricane preparedness supplies and provide three days for a back-to-school sales tax-free period in August.Under the proposal, sales taxes during certain periods in September would be lifted on the first $1,500 of select energyand water-efficient appliances as well as on physicalfitness facility memberships.The back-to-school discount would be offered on clothes that cost up to $100, school supplies worth up to $15 and the first $750 of the price of computers and certain accessories.The plan also includes a permanent sales tax exemption for car seats and bicycle helmets for kids, an increase in the corporate income tax exemption from $50,000 to $75,000 that Scott requested, $20 million for loans to television production companies and an expansion of the New Markets Tax Credit program for investments in low-income communities, from $178.8 million to $227.55 million.The House bill also incorporates Agriculture Commis sioner Adam Putnams plan to reduce the sales taxes businesses pay for electricity, a move expected to shift about $188 million to school construction and maintenance.The package is much broader than the Senate proposal backed by Finance and Tax Committee Chair woman Dorothy Hukill (R-Port Orange). Hukills package is limited to a three-day back-toschool sales-tax holiday (SB 792) and a measure that would scale back the communications services tax (SB 266) imposed on cable and phone services.The vehicle registration fee roll-back (SB 156) is on its way to Scott, who has said he will sign it.

The city of Marathon is inching closer to what seems an inevitable conclusion to step away from a $727,000 state grant aimed at helping fund a zip-line course at Crane Point Hammock. Crane Points 30-day window to provide the state Department of Economic Opportunity a plan for the timely completion of the estimated $1.1 million attraction expired on Wednesday with little response from the nonprofit. The DEO requested information asking why there are delays in submitting the environmental assessment and the wage decision request within 30 days from when it sent a Feb. 24 letter to the city. A wage decision is essentially the state dictating what general contractors must pay subcontractors in federally or state-funded projects. Jeff Smith, president of Crane Points board, wrote a one-page letter to the city on March 11. It attributes delays to third-party ... actions regarding the [height variance] issued by the citys planning director, George Garrett. A group of opponents to the zip line, many Crane Point subdivision residents, have fought the project every step of the way, including suing over the height variance, which was granted for several towers more than 40 feet high. The citys building height limit is 37 feet. The response came at our request from Crane Point. Im going to characterize it as a weak response and it doesnt provide any detail, Garrett said. The City Council previously agreed it would likely step away from the grant. However, the council left a window for Crane Point to address the states concerns prior to the grant expiring on Oct. 29, 2014. Garrett said staff recommends that window be closed, likely at the councils April 8 regular meeting. The recommendation from city staff is to release the money back to the state and back away from the project, Garrett said, referring to a staff report by Community Services Coordinator Debbie London. She was out of the office this week. The DEO is responsible for distributing the $727,000 Community Development Block Grant to the city, which agreed to procure the grant and act as a funding conduit for Crane Point. Crane Point was supposed to have submitted its environmental assessment to the state by March 2013 and its wage decision by June 2013. Guests staying at the Port Largo Villas have been making macabre discoveries over the past three weeks decapitated animals floating in the canals at the resort at mile marker 100 oceanside. Marcy Myers, Port Largo Villas manager, said staff and guests have found 16 birds and one pygmy goat floating in the water with their heads lopped off. My guests going to the dock trying to get to their boats have been finding them, and its freaking them out, Myers said this week. The birds include mainly chickens and roosters, but pigeons and even a headless osprey have also been found. Myers called the Upper Keys Animal Shelter, which operates as the countys Upper Keys animal control agency. Marsha Garrettson, who leads the shelter, said she had one of her officers conduct a door-to-door investigation. The officer also removed the dead animals from the water.He let people know what was happening and how we dont tolerate animal cruelty in the county, Garrettson said.The culprits behind the animal deaths are likely practitioners of Santeria, a religion originating out of West Africa that includes elements of Roman Catholicism. Its name means way of the saints.Santeria came to Cuba during the slave trade and has since spread to other regions. According to a BBC report on the religion, animal sacrifice is one of its central elements. In 1993, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled that Santeria practitioners are within their constitutional rights to sacrifice animals. Still, Garrettson warned that anyone caught sacrificing animals in Monroe County would be prosecuted. Its against the law to torment and torture an animal, and there is no proof of religious activity, Garrettson continued. All you have is proof that an animal is tortured, tormented and killed. We see that as animal cruelty, a violent act.

Earth DayEarth Day is just around the corner, and the Keys usually celebrate in a variety of ways. Story, 2BBSports & Outdoors CommunityLifestyle Arts & Entertainment Its just about time for the annual physical, otherwise known as the Seven Mile Bridge Run, for Palm Beach resident David Gordon. Thats what the 64-yearold said he considers the annual race, whose 1,500 slots are snatched up each year in online registration in fewer than 10 minutes. Ive run every one except the first race. I ran the second race by myself and started telling friends about it. One year we got up to 50 friends and family down there, Gordon said.Gordon will run the 33rd edition of the race alongside his children on April 5 and one day hopes his grandchildren will take part in the event.Its just so unique. Beating the bus is of course the goal, but its just such a good crowd of people and a well run and organized race. Its family oriented, too, he said.Gordon has had some close calls over the years, almost missing the race one year with a broken sternum. I broke it in a car wreck and asked [the doctor] if I could still run the bridge. He said it was going to hurt like hell. That was one of my tougher finishes, he recalled. There are many runners, like Sarasota resident Al Bezilla, who have similar stories to tell. Bezilla, who turns 67 Friday, ran the first-ever Bridge Run on May 22, 1982, and has taken part in each one since. Hell be on the starting line next weekend. Bezilla said that inaugural run was the first race he ever took part in. Thats why its so special for me. Some friends of mine said there was a race and I had no idea what running really was. Thirty-three years and more than 500 races later, everywhere from Marathon to Alaska, Bezilla says running has just become a way of life for me. The people Ive met and the friends Ive made, its really great for me. Ive raced everywhere in the United States. But the Seven Mile Bridge is my special race because its just such a unique venue, he said.Gordon said likewise, noting that the beauty of the surroundings can easily distract from the race. You get near the rail and look out to the ocean; you see the leopard rays and sharks. Its something Im going to do as long as I can.While running the race each year is definitely a passion for many runners, the same could be said for many of the 400-plus volunteers who help make it possible. Debbie Fowler was born and raised in the Keys and graduated from Marathon High School but now lives a healthy car ride away in New Smyrna Beach. I still come to the Keys to do it. My daughter has run it and we work that first water station every years. I love doing it and being a part of it, she said.Fowler has worked the water station at the two-mile mark the past 31 years. Shes worked it with her mother in years past, and will work it this year with her daughters and three grandchildren. I will as long as I can, Fowler said.Same goes for Marathon resident Don Scotten, whos volunteered for all 32 races and plans on being there next weekend. I started off with more jobs than you could imagine, he said. Scotten used to be in charge of constructing signs for the starting and finish lines in years past, and for making sure the road was back open to traffic at exactly the right time. At one time I had a crew of 30 people to make that happen, he said. Weve never failed. Scotten has also helped measure off splits that let the runners know precise distance points throughout the race. For serious runners, seconds make a difference and they needed to know where they were at. And we do have a lot of serious runners, he said.In more recent years, Scotten had what he joked is the most important job of all.That was making sure the beer was there. All these healthy people, youd be surprised at how much beer they can drink at 9 oclock in the morning, he said. Scotten still volunteers, albeit in a smaller coordinating capacity. The amount of stuff I do has shrunk, but my enthusiasm has not, he said. Thats precisely the kind of people race co-organizer Ginger Sayer who ran 24 consecutive years at one point said make the Seven Mile Bridge Run what it is. Its not that this is an easy race to direct, because its something thats a year-round job. But it is nice that so many of them have been doing this for so many years that they just know what to do, she said. The 33rd annual race is scheduled to begin at 7:30 a.m. April 5. The Seven Mile Bridge will be closed to traffic from 6:45 until 9 a.m. So if you are south of the bridge and need to get to the other side for something during that time, plan ahead.Annual race over the span is next weekendBy RYAN McCARTHYrmccarthy@keynoter.comSEVEN MILE BRIDGE RUNPalm Beach resident David Gordon (fifth from left) and his family and friends stayed at then-Siesta Motel in Marathon following the 1991 Seven Mile Bridge Run.

This shows why. Conchs win big in TennesseeFinding the unfamiliar scenery of the scenic city of Chattanooga to its liking, the Key West High baseball team defeated error-prone Cleveland (Tenn.) High, 122,Thursday night. The game the Conchs first in the 10-team Spring Break Chattanooga Central Invitational was stopped after the fifth inning by the 10-run mercy rule. Key West, playing as the home team with temperatures in the 50s, spotted Cleveland a run in the top of the first, but came back in the bottom of the inning with two runs one on a single by Greg Veliz and the other on a ground-out by Darren Miller. An error helped, too. Then, in the bottom of the second, the Conchs scored seven runs, aided by five Blue Raider errors. Hunter Sellers, leading off the inning, got on an error by the second baseman. An error by the shortstop followed, and then Anthony Henriquez walked to load the bases. Before the inning was over, much to the chagrin of pitcher Tyler Thompson, the second baseman made another error, the third baseman made two and Greg Veliz (a single to center that the center fielder let drop) and Hugo Valdes (a double) got the frames only two hits. Despite some wildness, Jay Feathers went the distance on the mound for Key West, allowing only two infield hits. Cleveland scored its runs on sacrifice flies. With the Conchs leading, 9-2, Andy Perez led off the bottom of the fifth with a double. After Veliz struck out, Valdes walked. Miller then doubled in a run (his 17th RBI of the season) before Brandon Presley drove in two with a hit up the middle to make it 12-2 and end the game. Those three runs were the Conchs only earned runs. Key West improved to 14-3 and Cleveland dropped to 3-10. The Conchs, who were scheduled to play Clarksville late Friday, will play at least two games today at 9 this morning against the Central Purple Pounders and at 3:45 p.m. against Murray County (Ga.) High.Mercy rule declared in invitationalBy DICK WAGNERKeynoter ContributorKEY WEST BASEBALLSmith wins 3rd straight MerkinGreg Smith of Laguna Vista, Texas, caught and released three permit measuring a combined total of 66.25 inches to win the 2014 March Merkin Permit Tournament that ended March 20. Smith was named the tournaments grand champion for the third consecutive year. He was guided by Capt. Scott Collins of Marathon, who earned top guide honors for the third consecutive year. Smith credited the win in great part to Collins ability to find the fish. Scott taught me how to permit fish, and Ive been fishing with him a lot, Smith said. We cant catch them if we cant find them, and [then] its a matter of getting in front of fish and making them eat. When the opportunity comes up, hes able to take advantage of it better than anybody, Collins said of his angler, adding that Smith can see really well and cast really well and feed the fish. The tournaments first runner-up was Nathanial Linville of Key West. Guided by Capt. John OHearn of Big Pine Key, Linville released two permit that measured a combined 60.75 inches. Linville also released the tournaments single largest permit, a 30.75-inch fish. Ned Johnson of Charleston, S.C., was named second runner-up angler for catching one permit that measured 28 inches. His guide was Capt. Doug Kilpatrick of Cudjoe Key. Twenty-seven anglers fished the tournament, coming from as far away as California, Montana, Wyoming, Washington, New York and Maine. Proceeds benefit the Bonefish & Tarpon Trust, which helps conserve and enhance global fisheries and habitats of bonefish, tarpon and permit.His aggregate is 66.25 inches in permit eventKEY WEST FISHING

SUPPORT UNITED WAY OF THE FLORIDA KEYS.IN THE KEYS FOR MORE THAN 30 YEARS Why does Network still stand up?When audiences left theaters in 1976 after viewing Network, a film about a deranged or messianic newscaster and his ratings-mad producers, they were surely aware that they had just witnessed the product of uncommon artistic vision. What they might not have realized was that one of the films most unique moments occurs during the opening credits.Before the names of the stars (Robert Duvall and Faye Dunaway among them) or the famous director (Sidney Lumet), the viewer sees By Paddy Chayefsky, an honor rarely shown to a screenwriter.That his name would be featured so prominently is testament not only to his genius but also to his uncompromising drive to see his message brought to the screen exactly as it had sprung from his fingers onto the page. New York Times culture critic Dave Itzkoff documents this journey wonderfully in his new book.In Mad as Hell, Itzkoff tells the story, lovingly and in depth, of the creation of a brilliant and important movie that would almost certainly never be made today. We see the force of Chayefskys will as boon and hindrance, able to blast through the barriers to the movies completion while sometimes alienating potential allies.His insistence that his message not be diluted bordered on the mania of his most indelible character, Howard Beale, who yells into a news camera, live on the air, Im as mad as hell, and Im not going to take this any more! There are also many interesting moments from the set, such as Duvall mooning pedestrians down on Sixth Avenue from the network offices between takes or the special light constructed to keep Chayefsky, who liked to be close to the action to ensure that the actors stuck to his script, from wandering in front of the main lighting.Network stands so strongly because it is a movieout-of-time. In 1976, it was an ironic commentary on the state of the American people, with the bloodthirsty element of the news media played up to farcical levels as a projection of the publics desires.By 2014, the movie is more like a mirror held up to the news programming on networks dedicated to partisan audiences, with ratings as the fickle king. Network was seen by many as a scathing assault on broadcast news media and the culture of conformity, but Itzkoff makes a convincing argument that Chayefsky was only using the news as a metaphor to reflect the degeneracy of empathy and decency. He was saddened when news media leaders took offense and even apologized. In a letter to Walter Cronkite (whose daughter appeared in the film in the role of a Patty Hearst-like character) Chayefsky wrote: I never meant this film to be an attack on television as an institution in itself, but only as a metaphor for the rest of the times. Later, to an audience of students, he elaborated: My rage isnt against television. Its against the dehumanization of people.The book is perhaps a bit light on analysis, and Itzkoff doesnt mount much of a personal interpretation of the film until close to the end. There is also precious little criticism in terms of suggesting where the filmmakers might have made missteps.But occasionally, hagiography is necessary. Howard Beale is after all a modern saint somehow more modern today than the day he was created or at least a holy fool. He deserves to have his story told as deftly as Itzkoff has told it here.

We bought food bowls, borrowed a crate and dusted off baby gates. But soon after we adopted our 13-week-old puppy, we discovered the house really wasnt ready. Clove, a Labrador retriever mix, chewed wires we thought were hidden and investigated stairs we thought shed ignore. She rummaged through deep plastic bins holding smelly shin guards and plucked snow-soaked mittens from our warm radiators. Within a week of her arrival, we had to block off power strips, reorganize our mudroom, devise a new plan for drying winter gear and gate the staircase. Its a lot like having an infant in the household, said Pamela Barlow, animal behavior counselor at the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals adoption center in New York City. Barlow says puppies need constant supervision and a safe environment to explore. She cautions against confining them so much that they dont get outside experiences. It is hard to go back and socialize puppies if owners miss the window of opportunity to do so. Puppies are drawn to things they can chew on and are stimulated by things that move, said Dr. Carlo Siracusa, director of the Penn Vet Behavior Service at the University of Pennsylvania. Many times we think that we should protect our home from a new puppy, Siracusa said, because the puppy could potentially cause damage. But more important is the opposite: Making sure that puppies are safe in their new home. Most essential is to create a safe haven a place where the puppy can rest and sleep when there is too much excitement or stimulation, such as when kids have friends visiting, Siracusa says.For the Sullivan family of South Orange, N.J., a crate has proven to be more useful for keeping their puppy, Angus, safe than his exercise pen has. Angus, a Bichon Frise-poodle mix now 5 months old, learned how to get out of the pen the first day, said Elie Sullivan. She keeps the door of his crate, located in her sons room, open.Hell go in there and have a nap, she said as Angus, as soft as a skein of cashmere, cuddled in her lap. Sullivan blocked stairs, moved low baskets into closets and bought tall hampers to prevent Angus from raiding the laundry.I like my house, she said. I didnt want it torn up.She also ensured that her house plants are safe for dogs.Alexis Shield was prepared with puppy gear and house-training research before bringing home Teddy, an Australian Labradoodle, when he was 9 weeks old. Thanks to her planning and consistency with Teddy, she has been amazed at how fast he learned. What she didnt expect, says Shield, who lives in a Virginia suburb of Washington, D.C., was how hard it would be to prepare her three young sons and supervise them with the puppy. She has Teddys crate in the kitchen, a safe place for him amid the household hubbub. Initially, Shield would occasionally put Teddy in the crate when she needed to do something and couldnt watch him; now a bit older, hes just in the crate when she leaves the house and at night, when he sleeps.Simple tipsPuppy-behavior experts recommend these steps to protect your puppy at home:Gate off rooms where you dont want your puppy to roam. For instance, one of Barlows clients is an artist with a studio in her house. The artist gated off the studio so the puppy couldnt run around the easels, paint and chemicals.Let puppies earn their freedom. Give them one space or room at a time. That way, owners can actively supervise them and limit any bad behavior.Create a safe confinement area a crate or exercise pen, for instance where the puppy can stay when you are not home. There should be enough space for a sleeping area and a potty area when puppies are very young. Also essential are a non-spill water bowl and safe, enriching toys. Toys that are not safe for this area when you are gone include tennis balls, rope toys, toys that are shorter than about double the length of the puppys snout, and stuffed toys that have glass or plastic eyes and noses, Barlow said.Tape loose electrical cords. Use outlet covers.Store cleaning chemicals out of reach. Use baby latches on cabinet doors if needed.Move breakables and valuables out of the puppys reach. Roll up new or valuable rugs until the puppy is house-trained. In your yard:Do not leave a puppy unsupervised, and be sure to fence in your yard before letting the puppy off leash.Fence off the garden.Use pet-safe gardening products, and be sure any lawn service you use does the same.Store grill utensils out of the puppys reach.Make sure a swimming pool is fenced.Check the ASPCAs list of poisonous plants.Crane Point creating posterCrane Point Museum and Nature Center in Marathon is seeking local artists to submit original work to create a Crane Point poster. Artwork should be submitted in size ranging from 11 inches by 14 inches to 18 inches by 24 inches. Posters will be sold in the gift shop. Other items such as smaller prints, cards, T-shirts and coffee mugs might also be produced using the art selected.

BOAT SALES AND MARINA BOAT SALES AND MARINACaribee CaribeeVisit us: Mile Marker 81.5 Bayside Islamorada, FL 33036 | 305.664.3431www.caribeeboats.com Its the end of winter and the beginning of spring, and blue water doldrums had arrived. Trickles of dolphin (mahi mahi), tuna, wahoo and sailfish were undependable at best, with some days producing but most days not. Capt. Beau Woods out of the Cudjoe Gardens Marina texted me to ask whats going on offshore. I thought a bit and told him the amberjack spawn over the wrecks is alive, and theyre thick. This was nothing new. Woods had already been working the wreck-donkey routine (wreck donkey is slang for the stubborn amberjack, much like an unwilling donkey that refuses to cooperate). He was just looking for some other options for his clients. At that moment, I realized how lucky we were to have the option. A 40-pound amberjack hooked up to a muscle-flexing vacationing angler is a memory maker for sure. Their bruised knees last well into the next week. Four boats arrived about the same time at the same wreck, confirming that amberjack were the most predictable species available to all of us. Woods was on the Double 00 boat, Capt. John Sahagian was on the Funyet and John Buckheim and his deckhand worked their commercial fishing center-console utilizing bandit rigs. The amberjack were stacked just like last year, and hungry. A big school was directly over the structure. On the first drift, an all-out assault by a full-sized one sparked the competitive nature of Texas angler Sadie Thacker. She did not like losing to anything, especially a full-grown amberjack. She was ready. On the second drift at about the same position, another amberjack was fooled by the fast-moving vertical jig my deckhand Capt. Seth Hopp was working. Sadie was then handed the rod to compete with another wreck donkey. After clearing the structure and drifting away from the shark-infested wreck, Sadie seemed to be in the clear. About 15 minutes into the battle, her fatigue was showing. Time to employ reinforcements. Sadies father Ty jumped in to help pump the rod and younger sister Olivia helped secure Sadie from being pulled over the transom. This was proving to be a three-angler amberjack. To bond as a family on a single fish is one of the extremely unique byproducts of our trade as charter captains. The magic of amberjack fishing is exposed at that moment. Together, the team was able to coax the 35-pound fish to the transom of the FishMonstercharter vessel Reel Deal allowing for the landing and a photo session to preserve the memory. The anglers decided to release the fish to fight another day as they celebrated on the deck. Hopp started the revival process. Due to the high gunnels of the Reel Deal, holding the amberjack by the lips for revival is next to impossible, so we hold the tail and work the fish up and down much like a tire pump, never exposing the gills to the air. Sometimes we have to press out the internal gases that expanded during the ascent. Never will we stick a fish with an airventing tool. This has proven to be more damaging than helpful. The amberjack will take some time to grab composure, letting you know by flexing or simply by kicking out of your hand. Success is reached when the fish swims down and out of sight. Sometimes the fish doesnt make it and thats the only time we tend to keep them. Handled correctly, they are a great eating fish when fresh, but are of more value swimming, in my opinion. Amberjack generally doesnt taste good after freezing unless youre a cat. Capt.
