BACK AT HOME AND HAPPYPhoto courtesy FLORIDA KEYS WILDLIFE RESCUEMaya Totman, director of the nonprofit Florida Keys Wildlife Rescue on Big Pine Key, was driving to Key West Wednesday to receive a donated car from the Monroe County Sheriffs Office when a bicyclist stopped her and said there was a baby alligator down the street, and that it was heading toward the road. She went to check, found it, put a towel over it and taped its mouth shut. She put the alligator back into what appeared to be its pond, and he was happy to be back in his natural habitat, Totman says.

Story, 2A Raschein, Rice are re-electedState Rep. Holly Raschein and Monroe County Com missioner David Rice were automatically re-elected Fri day when no one qualified for the ballot to run against them this year. The candidate qualifying period for most Monroe County races ended this week (Islamorada, Marathon and Layton candidates qualify in August).Pamela Gray, a Democrat from the Redland in MiamiDade, had filed to run against Raschein, a Republican from Key Largo. But when qualifying ended at noon Friday, only Raschein was left standing in state House District 120.Filing means submitting papers that indicate an intent to run; qualifying is fulfilling legal requirements to be placed on the ballot. I am happy, Raschein said. I think its important that the Keys have a member in the Legislature. She said getting re-elected by being unopposed for a second two-year term frees up her summer to work on the 2015 legislative session rather than campaigning. Unlike the past two years, Raschein said she wont necessarily focus on getting a third installment of $50 million for Keys sewer construction. The state has promised Monroe County $200 million toward that, and paid out half of it in two $50 million installments so far.Keys politicians had no opponents after qualifyingELECTION 2014State: Problems with appeals boardA state auditor generals report on property-assessment disputes gave Monroe County a minor rap on the knuckles over its procedures. The report issued in May by Florida Auditor General David W. Martin looks at how 15 of the states 67 counties deal with landowners appeals of their propertys assessed value for realestate tax purposes. The 15 counties, apparently selected at random to represent different population sizes, were audited on how their respective Value Adjustment Board process worked in the 2011 assessment process. Monroe was among seven counties faulted for not verifying that special magistrates, appointed to review disputed assessments, have the necessary experience and qualifications. The adjustment boards imperfect verification of special magistrate qualifications arose out of a combination of factors: A small county, a small pool of applicants for the position, and a close familiarity with those applicants, Monroe County Commissioner David Rice, serving as Value Adjustment Board chairman, responded in an April 28 letter. The clerk of the courts and board attorney reviewed the applications annually andBut theyre mostly minor, Rice cites size of countyVALUE ADJUSTMENT BOARDKeynoter StaffSee Election, 3ABy KEVIN WADLOWSenior Staff Writer firstname.lastname@example.orgSee Audit, 3A A grand jury will investigate if any crime occurred or Key West Police Department policies were violated in the death of a Michigan man following a traffic stop. Charles Eimers, 61, of Birch Run, Mich., died at Lower Keys Medical Center Dec. 4. He was admitted there after he was taken into custody during a traffic stop on Thanksgiving at South Beach, on the Atlantic end of Duval Street. Police contend they had to take him down after he had initially fled, but a witness video appears to show that Eimers surrendered at the beach, lying down in the sand before officers approached him. The Florida Department of Law Enforcement has wrapped its investigation and on Thursday gave its report to the Monroe County State Attorneys Office. State Attorney Catherine Vogel said the grand jury, which had already been convened for other matters, will be presented the case July 21, 22 and 23. It could decide to hand up criminal indictments and make recommendations on changes needed in Police Department policy. Theyre going to look at not only if there was criminal behavior, but if everything was handled properly, Vogel said.Its a top priority for our office, she said. I have ordered my staff to handle this as expeditiously as possible but with completeness. We do know there is criticism that this is taking a long time. Please understand we just got the report Thursday.Still, she said the publicFDLE finishes investigation into what happened during, after stopKEY WESTGrand jury probes death of EimersVitas could be fired June 30Key West City Manager Bob Vitas two-year reign could end come June 30: The City Commission is scheduled to meet that morning to give Vitas a vote of confidence or no confidence.It stems from his deci sion to hire Assis t ant City Man ager David Fernandez to be the city utilities director the same day as Fernandez retires from the city administration. Fernandez would get an annual salary nearly double that of outgoing utilities head Jay Gewin, whos moving to Seattle to be closer to family.Mayor Craig Cates said Friday that he address ed the confidence vote with City Attor ney Shawn Smith following Tues days City Commission meeting. He said if the majority indicates no confidence in Vitas, he would likely be fired that night.I would say it would have to be done then, Cates said. Im not going to say its going to come down like that.Should Vitas be fired and the city requires an interim manager, Cates said hes already spoken with a familiar face: Former Manager Jim Scholl, who retired in July 2012, would come back as interim manager until we find someone.

explanation for the hire. Vitas claims personnel decisions are his to make and argued that the policies lack clarity regarding the legal review of contracts.Smith says contracts must go through his office for review, and always have.The city charter makes it clear that the city manager has to make decisions on hiring and firing. Thats precisely whats happened. I made a decision, Vitas said. Gewin earned roughly $62,000 per year, while Vitas approved a five-year contract paying Fernandez $113,000 annually for the same position. He would start on July 3, the date of his retirement after 28 years with the city. An emotional Smith told the commission that Vitas never discussed this issue with me and that he received the proposed contract only by way of a public-records request e-mail thread he was copied on. To hear that its vague and ambiguous that contracts come through my office is a bald-faced false statement to this commission, Smith said. It is crystal clear that all agreements come through the City Attorneys Office. Not only is it the commissions resolution, its common sense.Vitas countered by saying that he reviewed 81 separate contract employee agreements and that it was unclear whether any were reviewed by Smiths office.In all the documents, there is no record that they were reviewed. Im not saying that they werent, but I have no record they were, he said. Smith was so annoyed that he told the commission that he would be not all that inclined to stay on when his contract expires in December. Its been rewarding on a number of levels. As of late, Ive watched the city spiral downward and its troubling and it hurts me, Smith said. Several commissioners criticized Vitas decision, with commissioners Tony Yaniz and Clayton Lopez calling for the Fernandez contract to be invalidated. That will also be considered on June 30.

The new rules, including a spearfishing provision pioneered in the Florida Keys, become effective Aug. 1. Action by the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission at its meeting in Fort Myers includes:Banning the importation of live lionfish.Allowing divers using rebreather equipment to spear lionfish (rebreathers remain illegal for other spearfishing).Allowing divers in approved tournaments like lionfish derbies to spear lionfish in state waters normally closed to all spearfishing. Each tournament must received FWC permits, and spearfishing remains banned in Florida Keys National Marine Sanctuary no-take areas. The state Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services and the FWC are working to develop rules that would ban in-state breeding of lionfish, with an exception for approved research. Lionfish are a voracious, fast-breeding Pacific species that has no natural predators in the Atlantic Ocean. An increase in lionfish numbers could threaten native fish species.

He was predeceased by his parents, Hugo and Emma, and his sister Eleanor. Pops lived in Munich, Germany during his adolescence, moving back to Islip after WWII. This is where he met his soul mate and wife for 63 years, Caroline (nee Ray), affectionately known as "Granny" to family and friends. Together they are parents to four children, three sons Bobby (Toni), Richard (Tina), Ronald (Cindy), and a daughter Tina Caracci (Vinny). They also have seven grandchildren, and seven great grandchildren. He always loved being with his family. Pops served America in the U.S. Army for 10 years.

Pops loved his country, the City of Marathon, as well as Marathon High School, and was always there to serve his community whenever he was needed. Pops also enjoyed watching baseball, fishing, watching old TV westerns, and the opera. He truly enjoyed our familys annual trip to Anna Maria Island, FL.

Sgt. Dawn Leird reached the area, between Ocean Pointe Suites on Burton Drive and Harry Harris Park, around 5 p.m. and saw one man struggling to push the Sea Pro off the flat. That man Alvaro Tato, 31, of Sunrise waded to shore and told the deputy the boat belongs to his friend, Boca Raton resident Carlos G. DaCosta, 49. Just then, DaCosta came into sight, paddling a kayak and yelling to Tato, said Sheriffs Office spokeswoman Becky Herrin. DaCosta admitted taking the boat from behind an East Beach Road home, that it did not belong to him and that no one gave him permission to use it, Herrin said. Leird reported that DaCosta claimed he just took it for a ride and was going to return it.... The keys were on board and he was going to bring it right back. After running aground soon after leaving a canal, DeCosta made his way back the house to get the kayak. The suspect did not have permission to use the kayak, either, the boat owner from Hialeah confirmed. DaCosta and Tato were booked into the Monroe County jail on two counts of theft involving property worth more than $10,000. They were being held in lieu of $26,500 bond each. The boat was towed from the flat. Grounding damage to the sea bottom will be assessed by the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission.Suspect says it was merely a joy rideUPPER KEYSTwo mainland men charged in boat theftKeynoter StaffMissing boaters found safeA crew aboard a U.S. Coast Guard airplane searching for an overdue catamaran on a trip across the Gulf of Mexico to Key West spotted the 63-foot sailboat Thursday evening.They were north of the Dry Tortugas, Coast Guard spokesman Petty Officer JonPaul Rio said Friday morning.Right now were not sure of the reason they were overdue, whether they were beset by weather or something else, Rios said from Coast Guards 7th District Command Center in Miami. The couple aboard Thomas Rota, 40, and Megan Rota, 37 apparently are in good health, he said. An extensive search launched Tuesday covered an area from 190 miles south of the Florida Panhandle to the Florida Straits, south of the Keys. The Rotas left a marina in Isla Mujeres, Mexico, on June 9 for a gulf crossing to Key West. They expected arrive in the Dry Tortugas by June 13 and be in Key West by Monday.When the two-masted catamaran named Chelone had not reached the Tortugas by Tuesday, a relative alerted the Coast Guard. The family had not heard from the two boaters since June 9, according to the Coast Guard. The Coast Guard issued an Urgent Marine Information Broadcast, asking other boaters to keep a sharp lookout for the missing boaters.Coast Guard aircraft were launched from bases in Miami, Clearwater and Mobile, Ala., during the intensified search. The Rotas did not contact family or the Coast Guard to let them know they were behind schedule on their float plan. It would have been nice, Rios said. Coast Guard officers are expected to interview the Rotas when they reach Key West. The couple lives in Mexico.

No reasons were for the delay were available at press time. By KEVIN WADLOWSenior Staff Writer firstname.lastname@example.orgCollege loses warning labelThe organization that accredits Florida Keys Community College on Thursday took the school off warning status because its finances have improved. Losing that label is huge because if improvements werent made, the school could have been put on probation. Following probation is the possible loss of accreditation meaning FKCC students credits wouldnt transfer to other schools and FKCC would lose access to federal student financial aid. The Southern Association of College and Schools Commission on Colleges took the vote Thursday, and now the colleges accreditation, renewed in June 2012 for 10 years, doesnt appear to be in danger.In June 2013, the association found that the college wasnt complying with various standards when it came to the schools finances. It also found the school failed to make timely and significant progress toward correcting the deficiencies that led to the finding of noncompliance....The Southern Association, responsible for accrediting colleges in 11 states, had determined the school didnt have financial stability or control of research or other external funds. Following Thursdays vote, Beth Whelan, the associations Commission on Colleges president, said they were able to demonstrate they satisfied all of our specifics. They cleared up all of those issues. They were able to show they are financially stable, they are in control of their finances.The next time the association is scheduled to take a look at FKCC is in June 2017, when the school has to issue a mid-cycle report halfway into its 10-year accreditation.But we can go into an institution anytime, Whelan said. If you caught wind of something that wasnt kosher, you could call us. They are off our radar until 2017 unless we get a major complaint or they self-report something.FKCC President Jonathan Gueverra was out of the country and not available for comment Friday.But Provost Brittany Snyder said when Gueverra came on board in 2012, he looked at all administrative jobs to see if there was overlap of duties and that kind of thing.He reorganized, we got a 2 percent reduction in salary and benefits from that, Snyder said. She also said operational expenses that were $10.4 million in fiscal 2010 were down to $9.4 million in 2103. For fiscal year 2014, that figure should be even lower, she said.

Action has been taken or will be taken this year to correct those oversights, Rice said in his response.The report notes that in 2011, Monroe County land owners filed 686 petitions for an assessment review. Of those, 642 were withdrawn by the owners before an appeal hearing. That withdrawal rate of 94 percent was the highest of any of the 15 counties audited.We sit down with the petitioner and show them how the value was derived, Russell said. If they bring us a factual problem, we make sure its corrected. In the majority of cases, thats why they withdraw their petition, he said. We support our valuations as reasonable.

Vogel said theres no timeline for when the grand jury would release its findings and recommendations.Meanwhile, both Vogel and FDLE spokeswoman Gretl Pressinger said they welcome any more information the public might have about Eimers death. Were still taking statements. We invite the public if they have any information, Pressinger said. Police say they pulled over Eimers on North Roosevelt Boulevard. Police say he pulled away from the stop, drove through Old Town and stopped his P.T. Cruiser at South Beach. Police say when he got out of his car, officers took him down to his stomach and handcuffed him. They saw he began turning blue, according to reports. Eimers died at Lower Keys Medical Center on Dec. 4. Eimers family sued the city and 12 police officers in U.S. District Court in April, claiming wrongful death. In the lawsuit, the family says it is grossly apparent that the defendants asphyxiated Charles Eimers by forcing his face into the sand, causing him to inhale sand.Medical Examiner E. Hunt Scheuerman did an autopsy on Eimers on Dec. 12 but didnt rule on a cause of death.Officials want more witnessesFrom Eimers, 1AOpen-container law redux?Marathon City Council man Mark Senmartin says he wants to revisit the idea of enacting a law that would criminalize drinking alcohol in several public places throughout the city. The council addressed the issue in 2011 but scrapped it after numerous discussions with the Monroe County Sheriffs Office, which is the citys police department, over how to enforce it. The concern was that the law would apply in residential areas, where residents could technically have gotten arrested walking across any street with an open container. Drafts were also written about whether the law would apply within 100 feet or 500 feet from a package store. I made some modifications with [City Attorney Lynn Dannheisser]. Some of the concerns I heard voiced last time was, I cant cross the street with a beer or Ill get arrested. We broke it down into a zoning map, Senmartin said. According to a draft ordinance prepared for a discussion at this coming Tuesdays City Council meeting, alcohol may be consumed from open containers in all zoning districts with the exception of those areas zoned mixed usecommercial, mixed-use maritime, industrial-general and industrial-maritime. In addition, alcohol may be consumed from open containers within the private property limits of hotel, motel and resort lodging uses in the proposed prohibited areas. Proposed penalties for violating the law would be $50 and up to 10 days in jail for a first offense. The fine would increase to $300 and jail could not exceed 30 days for subsequent violations. Senmartin said hes targeting what he calls problem areas such as around 15th Street and U.S. 1, and the public bus stop on Sombrero Beach Road. The police cant do anything about it because the people around town know there is no open container law, he said. Its something that needs to be addressed. Senmartin said the Sheriffs Office would have a lot of discretion in enforcing such a law. Its like the speed limit on Key Colony Beach. Everybody knows you dont break 25 mph, he said. If we get a little enforcement, I think its going to be a thing where people just know. Tuesdays council meeting is scheduled to begin at 5:30 p.m. at the Marathon Government Center.By RYAN McCARTHYrmccarthy@keynoter.comMARATHONCouncil endorses wildlife areasAdvisors to the Florida Keys National Marine Sanctuary on Tuesday unanimously endorsed a proposal to expand the number of wildlife management areas in nearshore waters.The council agreed to send a slate of recommendations from its Shallow Water Wildlife and Habitat Protection Working Group to federal and state staff for review.The sanctuary advisory council, meeting in Marathon, added several items to the working groups suggestions as part of the sanctuarys major update of its management plan. Those include:Ensuring boat channels remain open for navigation. The area around Marathons Vaca Cut was noted in particular, says a meeting summary.Seeking a clear rationale for instituting changes in nearshore waters. Areas of particular interest were the proposed Tarpon Wildlife Migration Zone along much of Marathons Atlantic Ocean coastline, along with Lower Keys areas at East and West Baracutta Key Flat, and in the Marquesas.Marking the zones to alert boaters.Considering alternatives to wildlife designation areas to protect turtle-nesting areas.Adding Pelican Key, in a high-use area on the bayside of Key Largo near mile marker 98, as a new wildlife zone to protect wading birds and frigates. During public comment, a speaker urged the sanctuary to consider carrying capacity for sandbar recreation areas. The advisory panel agreed to recommend mechanisms to address emerging areas of concentrated use that could damage shallow-water habitat. Recommendations from the Sanctuary Advisory Council will be submitted to sanctuary staff (which includes state and federal workers) for consideration during drafting of the new management plans environmental impact statement. The panel also endorsed a plan for coral restoration areas. Any changes to existing sanctuary regulations suggested by staff return to the Keys for public hearings. No major changes are expected to take effect before 2016, under a revised timeline. The sanctuary councils Ecosystem Protection Working Group, which is reviewing marine protected areas along the Keys reef tract, meets in a two-day session July 8 and 9 to finalize its recommendations.

In advance of a Tuesday City Council meeting that could see the board vote to sever that deal in favor of an in-house department, Rosasco said he wanted to dispel the notion that his firm did not provide information requested by one council member in a timely fashion. On April 22, the council directed staff to investigate the pros and cons for inhouse financial services. Rosasco, in response to concerns voiced with his involvement in a Florida Keys Country Club hotel project, stepped down as finance chief at the same meeting. He did so despite receiving an opinion on April 25 from the state Commission on Ethics clearing him of legal issues. Rosasco said that he provided Councilman Mark Senmartin with details about his fixed-rate ($365,736 per year) contract, hourly billing utility finance contract and other billing contracts (city manager recruitment) following the April 22 council meeting. Those figures show the city paid Bishop Rosasco an average of $499,629 per year from 2008 through 2013.But Senmartin also wanted detailed expense reports about miscellaneous costs and credit card charges made by Rosasco. He said his goal is to obtain a true cost for the contracts.According to Rosasco, credit card information for all city credit card holders, as requested on May 12, [were] delivered to [interim City Manager Mike] Puto on May 13 (fiscal year 200910), May 20 (fiscal years 2010-11 and 2011-12) and May 22 (fiscal years 2012-13 and 2013-14 to date). Saying Ive been withholding information or not providing anything, thats out of line because theres nothing like that, Rosasco said. Puto has said the credit card reports amount to maybe 4,000 pages and that it was labor-intensive to go through them. Rosasco prepared several documents for the entire council, which he shared with the Keynoter, that detail his travel expenses from 2011 through 2014 and highlight finance department accomplishments in securing grants and low-interest state loans to finance the citys $100 million-plus central sewer system.

This is a ward in the Key West Convent Hospital at St. Mary Star of the Sea Church at Duval and Eaton streets in 1898. The night of Feb. 15, 1898, as the convents newest class was graduating at what is now the San Carlos Institute, word was received that the USS Maine exploded and sunk in Havana Harbor (left), sparking the Spanish American War. For weeks after that, many of the Maines injured and dead were taken to military hospitals in Key West, and Mother Mary Florentine volunteered the convent for use as a medical center; the U.S. Navy accepted. Brought there were 326 wounded men. The war ended on Dec. 10, 1898, when the U.S. and Spain signed a treaty, and the Navys official inquiry into the sinking took place at what is now the Key West Museum of Art & History at the Custom House, 281 Front St. The convent is now known as the Basilica of Saint Mary Star of the Sea and is at 1010 Windsor Lane.Photo courtesy MONROE COUNTY PUBLIC LIBRARYCELEBRATING OUR PAST EDITORIALRules leave room for compromiseLETTERS TO THE EDITORShore needs enforcementOver the past year, I have followed with interest the discussions, meetings and articles written about the nearshore waters of Lower Matecumbe Key. As a resident of Port Antigua with a home near the beach, and the mother of an 11-year-old, the safety of our nearshore waters off Port Antigua, White Marlin and Sandy Point concerns me. I live here year-round, own my home and work locally. My son attends a local school and rides his bike in our neighborhood.I have heard people say restricting boat traffic within 300 feet of our shores would be dangerous for their children and make it difficult for the elderly and disabled to enjoy the waters.Personally, I prefer my son to swim in boat-free areas. The visibility is better without large boats coming in and out, and the removal of motors eliminates prop injuries such as a recent death suffered by a good Samaritan in Miami attempting to help push a large boat off the sand. This weekend, we had a large boat with multiple motors stuck just off our beach. The owner caused significant damage to the sea bottom attempting to motor off. Luckily, no one in that incident was hurt. We did have a fight off our beach involving a Jet Ski, with the drunk, unruly individual escorted back to Miami. There was also a fight on the Sandbar involving a large boat with multiple engines in shallow water. That fight ended in a trip to the hospital with facial injuries.The 300-foot mark off our beach on Lower Matecumbe Key has waters between 3.5 and 4.5 feet deep. Directly off our beach in Port Antigua, we have a sandbar at roughly 100 feet from shore. Our waters out to 300 feet are shallower than a traditional swimming pool.Anyone who so desires is welcome to swim in our nearshore waters. However, as a homeowner I am entitled to peaceful enjoyment of life in my own home. I should not hear music from the beach in my house with the door closed and the windows shut.I often hear music blaring from speakers on boats anchored mere yards from shore. I have given up trying to sit on the beach or even on my porch on weekends and holidays with my son. The language, alcohol use, nudity and dangerous boating practices have eliminated my enjoyment during these times.My son actually does his yearly mandatory school community service snorkeling within 300 feet of the beach picking up the trash dumped from the partying boats. We stopped counting after we collected more than 100 beer bottle caps. I would welcome any Village Council members who wish to clean up the waters to join us after one of these weekends. We call them treasure hunts. We never know what we will find. I look forward to the Village Council implementing a motor-exclusion zone in the nearshore waters off Lower Matecumbe. Allison Zettwoch Lower Matecumbe KeyAdvocate for AlzheimersWhile more than half of Americans know someone with Alzheimers disease, many may not know how to make a difference. June is Alzheimers and Brain Awareness Month, an opportunity to educate people on the disease. The Alzheimers Association is asking everyone to join the purple movement and help protect our greatest assets. Become an Alzheimers advocate. Write your members of Congress to ask for more federal funding for Alzheimers research. As a community, we must come together to support people suffering from this degenerative and fatal disease. Ann May, CEO Alzheimers Association Southeast Florida West Palm Beach Editors note: The Alzheimers Associations Southeast Florida chapter comprises seven counties: Monroe, Miami-Dade, Broward Okeechobee, St. Lucie, Martin and Palm Beach. It provides support and educational services to more than 150,000 people with Alzheimers disease, their families and care-givers.All stakeholders need to come together as Biscaynes management plan is rewrittenSummer is just about here, and its brought that recurring debate over how best to preserve Biscayne National Park, which borders North Key Largo. The National Park Service, whose job is to protect the natural jewel for, and from, we the people the recreational users, anglers and commercial fishermen is considering new rules and restrictions aimed at saving the parks deteriorating natural resources.Unfortunately, too many people might be asking: Where is Biscayne National Park and why should I care?Anyone who has gone out on a boat on Biscayne Bay and docked at Elliott Key, or snorkeled, scuba dived or fished, has been there. After all, the park is 95 percent water. Second to the Everglades, Biscayne National Park, which stretches for 270 square miles from the waters of Stiltsville to North Key Largo, is one of South Floridas most popular attractions. But commercial fishing there could end, along with the two-day lobster mini-season that takes place in a third of the park, outside its existing lobster sanctuary. Why? The park is exhausted. The population of fish is being depleted, and the fish themselves are smaller. Reefs are being destroyed, and along with them, almostirreplaceable natural resources and the economic bounty that they bring. Administrators, indeed, must take drastic action. The aggressive new management plan would help the park survive and flourish. At the same time, many of the parks users are concerned that they are being unnecessarily banned from accessing this national treasure. The recommendations, extreme to some, clearly are the starting point from which compromise can emerge. The road from proposal to enactment requires input and approval from the federal government and the state, via the Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission, which has to sign off on the recommendations. To attest to the parks popularity, half a million people from around the world launch into its beauty every year. Thats great but its also the challenge. The pressure that human activity puts on the fish population, delicate coral reefs and seagrass can be devastating. Fishing lobbying groups are opposed to any closures. They say that there are other measures the Park Service could take, such as a change in bag limits and gear restrictions. But are these enough to allow the park to replenish itself or are these merely timid half-steps? That has to be determined. There must be room for compromise and balance, with fishing curtailed but not necessarily eliminated. As for the lobster mini-season, reins, too, should be applied here without wiping it out totally. Too many who take part create a destructive mini-blitz over those two days. Yes, this is your park, but we are charged with preserving it for future generations, park Superintendent Brian Carlstrom says. We want your kids and your kids kids to enjoy it, too, No one should argue with that important mission. Miami Herald Club cited for illegal fillThe Florida Keys Country Club and Discount Rock and Sand were cited on Wednesday by the city of Marathon Code Compliance Department for illegally dumping large piles of construction and demolition debris on the golf course property. The violation was revealed during Mondays Planning Commission meeting, at which the club was applying for a conditional-use permit and development agreement for a proposed $6 million overhaul to the property.Commissioner Dan Zieg broached the topic, saying he noticed theres a mound of dirt and broken concrete and construction debris amounting to 100 to 200 loads of dirt sitting on the southernmost part of the property. Zieg said Discount Rock and Sand told him that Peter Rosasco, a principal in the hotel redevelopment deal, ordered that to be delivered on site at the country club. Planning Director George Garrett alluded to the fact that a fill permit had been issued, but that he was unaware who the applicant was. It turns out there was no permit, leading the city to red-tag the fill two days later.According to city Code Administrator Stacy Charlton, the country club was cited as the holder of the permit while Discount Rock and Sand was cited as the contractor.The country club was getting a notice of violation. They were given 30 days to correct the problem. Theres no money assigned to the country club [citation] at this time, Charlton said. Interim City Manager Mike Puto said Discount Rock and Sand was fined $500 for working without a permit and another $300 for unlawful disposal of solid waste. There are large concrete blocks with exposed rebar at the site, as well as broken tile and other debris.It looks like they were using it for a dump, Puto said.Lopez did not return a call for comment by deadline. Rosasco said he paid for the fill, but that his responsibility ends there The contractor was supposed to pull a permit and he didnt. Im not saying I wasnt involved with the fill. I paid for the fill and Im not too happy for the fact he didnt pull a permit. But the permit wouldnt have been in my name or anything like that, he said. Despite the fill issue, the Planning Commission voted 4-1 in favor of the country clubs redevelopment. Rosasco and his team of investors have yet to close on the property.By RYAN McCARTHYrmccarthy@keynoter.comMARATHONWoman dies after autos strikeA 72-year-old Tavernier woman died Tuesday night after she was struck by two possibly three autos as she walked along U.S. 1, the Florida Highway Patrol says.Mabel Aguiar, 72, of Tavernier died after being struck around 10:40 p.m. in the northbound lane at mile marker 92. She became the sixth traffic fatality of 2014 south of Florida City compared to 12 for the same period in 2013, says Lt. Kathleen McKinney.Troopers say Elizabeth Ramirez, 22, of Homestead was driving a 2003 Chevrolet north in the inside lane. As she neared Julep Road, she saw the car in front of her swerve to the right.When that auto was out of the way, she saw what turned out to be Aguiar standing directly in front of her car and couldnt avoid her, and struck her. Then Daniel Singleton, 19, of Key Largo, driving a 2001 Jeep, drove up on the outside lane. He tried to switch to the left-hand lane, then ran over Aguiar, whom he didnt see, troopers said. A possible third auto, maybe a Toyota Corolla, might have been involved but in what capacity, troopers didnt say. Troopers say it was cloudy at the time of the crash, the road was wet due to rain, and lighting conditions were poor. U.S. 1 was blocked at 10:45 p.m. About an hour later, northbound motorists were steered onto the right shoulder, and the highway reopened at 3:24 a.m. Anyone with information about the possible third auto should call Trooper Eloy Arias or Cpl. Cliff Fisher at (305) 470-2500.Marathon grad diesA former Marathon man died early Tuesday morning in a crash south of Gainesville, according to news outlets in that area. Alberic Forest, 23, a student at Sante Fe College and a former basketball player at Marathon High School, was driving a 2002 Mitsubishi Galant on U.S. 441 at more than 100 mph when he drove off the road and hit several palm trees. The Galant was sliced in half and Forest was thrown from the car even though he was wearing a seatbelt. The speed limit in that area is 55 mph.UPPER KEYS A possible third auto, maybe a Toyota Corolla, might have been involved. Keynoter Staff
The Internal Revenue Service is offering to waive steep penalties for Americans living abroad who havent been paying their U.S. taxes. But there is a catch: A person has to be able to show that he or she did not evade U.S. taxes on purpose. American citizens living abroad are required to file U.S. tax returns even if they keep all their money overseas. Similarly, U.S. citizens living in the United States are required to tell the IRS about any accounts they have in foreign banks. The penalties for not reporting these accounts are stiff. If there is more than $10,000 in an unreported account, the IRS can impose penalties of 100,000 more if the accounts are really big. The IRS announced a program Wednesday that would largely waive these penalties if taxpayers come forward and show that they didnt hide the money on purpose.Americans living abroad can have all penalties waived if they file three years worth of tax returns and pay any back taxes. Americans living in the U.S. can come clean by disclosing overseas accounts and paying a penalty equal to 5 percent of the accounts assets.For people who are willfully evading U.S. taxes, the IRS is tweaking an existing program that imposes stiff penalties for people who come forward, but allows them to escape criminal prosecution.IRS officials declined to provide examples of how someone could inadvertently fail to report income or bank accounts. Instead, they offered this definition: Non-willful conduct is conduct that is due to negligence, inadvertence or mistake or conduct thats the result of a good-faith misunderstanding of the requirements of the law.Hurricane tax endingCollected to help pay claims from the 2004 and 2005 hurricane seasons, an extra charge on homeownersand auto insurance policies will be removed 18 months earlier than previously expected.The 1.3 percent charge, added to most property and casualty lines, covers losses incurred by the Florida Hurricane Catastrophe Fund from those storm-filled seasons. Gov. Rick Scott and members of the Florida Cabinet this past week moved up the end date of the assessment to Jan. 1, 2015, rather than July 1, 2016.Its a positive thing, said Jack Nicholson, executive director of the Florida Hurricane Catastrophe Fund. People refer to this as a hurricane tax, and it will go away.It means rates are going down a little bit, which is a good thing, said Sam Miller, executive vice president of the Florida Insurance Council.The charge, which first appeared at 1 percent in 2007 and was raised to the current rate in 2011, collectively hits policyholders for between $350 million and $500 million a year. The charge is imposed on most property and casualty policies other than medical malpractice and workers compensation. Nicholson said the fund, which provides backup coverage for insurers, was able to move up the end of the collection in part by settling the final claims for damages from Hurricane Wilma, which hit South Florida in October 2005, at $498 million less than what had been initially sought. Also, the fund has received more money than expected due to an increase in policies statewide, he said. The catastrophe fund, better known as the cat fund, has about $13 billion on hand and is expected to be able to raise an additional $4 billion, which is considered solid ground for covering most post-storm claims.The state was hit by eight hurricanes in 2004 and 2005, which accounted for about $9.2 billion in claims to the cat fund.

Story, 4BBSports & Outdoors CommunityLifestyle Arts & Entertainment Potato salad is yummyThe Fourth of July is one of those holidays when it is hard to resist playing up the theme in the food. Its why we make sure plenty of red, white and blue fruit tarts, flag-inspired cupcakes and brightly colored juices and cocktails always accompany our buffet of the usual hot dogs and burgers. This year, we decided to carry the color scheme to our potato salad, too. And thanks to red and purple potatoes, roasted red peppers, cubes of white goat cheese, and several cups of blueberries, the American flag is well represented. This salad also would be delicious with the addition of chicken or crumbled bacon. Alternatively, if tarragon isnt your favorite herb, cilantro or basil would play nicely. Getting started with what you need:24 ounces small red potatoes, halved or quartered.24 ounce small purple potatoes, halved or quartered.Kosher salt and ground black pepper.Four tablespoons red wine vinegar, divided.Three tablespoons extravirgin olive oil.Two tablespoons Dijon mustard.Quarter cup chopped fresh tarragon.Eight ounces goat milk cheddar or gouda, diced.Two cups fresh blue berries.One cup diced roasted red peppers. Place the potatoes in a large pot. Add enough water to cover the potatoes by one inch. Add a hefty pinch of salt, then bring to a boil. Reduce to a simmer, cover and cook until fork tender, but not falling apart, 12 to 15 minutes. Drain the potatoes, then spread them on a rimmed baking sheet. Sprinkle with salt and black pepper, then sprinkle with 2 tablespoons of the vinegar. Set aside to cool completely.In a large bowl, whisk together the remaining two tablespoons of vinegar, the olive oil, mustard and tarragon. When the potatoes have cooled, add them to the bowl, as well as the cheddar, blueberries and roasted red peppers. Stir gently to coat with the dressing.

The organization that sets safety standards for athletic equipment was preparing to adopt the testing criteria on Friday.Its part of a movement to try to make contact sports safer, as concern about concussions is growing. Theres even a new smartphone app to help parents and coaches recognize right away if a player may have a brain injury.Football helmets were designed to protect against catastrophic injuries such as skull fractures and bleeding in the brain, and are considered highly effective at that. Theyre tested for how they withstand direct blows, socalled linear forces that can make the brain bump back and forth. The proposed new standard would add an additional test of how helmets perform when an impact also makes a players head suddenly spin, causing the brain to stretch and twist inside the skull as it changes direction. Scientists call that rotational acceleration, and brain specialists say limiting both kinds of forces is important. Were plowing new ground here, said Mike Oliver, executive director of the National Operating Committee on Standards for Athletic Equipment. The hope is that the standard might eventually spur safer helmet designs. I dont believe helmets will ever be the sole solution for concussion, said Dr. Robert Cantu, a Boston University neurologist, a leading sports concussion expert and vice president of the athletic equipment standards committee. Bu, it puts us on the road to developing helmets that will lessen the chance for concussion. Once the standard goes into effect, expected in about a year, it would apply only to new helmets. We dont foresee any need to replace all the helmets that exist with new and different helmets, Oliver said. This is a first step.Concern about concussions is growing amid headlines about former professional players who suffered long-term impairment after repeated blows to the head. Its not just football; concussions occur in a range of sports, from hockey and lacrosse to soccer and wrestling. Children and teens, with their still-developing brains, appear at special risk.The Institute of Medicine of the National Academies in Washington, D.C., an independent organization that advises the government, warned last fall that too many young athletes still face a play-at-all-costs culture that discourages reporting the injury and staying on the sidelines until its healed. Although millions of U.S. children and teens play school or community sports, its not clear how many suffer concussions, in part becauseThe goal is minimizing head traumaBy LAURAN NEERGAARDAssociated PressSPORTS HEALTHSee Concussion, 3BFHSAA: Helmets for girls teamsA new state rule requiring girls high-school lacrosse teams to wear helmets landed like a blow to the head, say Florida Keys lacrosse supporters.This is disaster for girls lacrosse in Florida, said Mark Hall, founder of successful boys and girls lacrosse programs at Coral Shores High School in Tavernier.Its totally misguided, short-sighted and illinformed, Hall said. It will bring the level of play down and make it rougher. Its drastic change. US Lacrosse, the sports national sanctioning organization, also calls the June 10 decision by the Florida High School Athletic Association a mistake. It is simply irresponsible to enact rule mandates requiring head protection in womens lacrosse without a clear understanding of the mechanism of head injury in a version of the sport that is entirely different from its male counterpart, Ann Kitt Carpenetti, US Lacrosse vice president, said in the organizations statement. Marathon High School Athletic Director Teresa Konrath, who serves on the FHSAA state board of directors, voted against the helmet requirement for the 2015 spring season. Konrath was on the losing side of a 9-5 vote. I dont have the lacrosse expertise to mandate something like that, Konrath said Thursday. I thought we could table it for a period of time until we get more information. A statewide petition to present a more unified opposition to the new rule change on the Change.org website drew more than 3,000 online signatures in its first week.This is absurd and should repealed right away, Katharine Hamer, a Coral Shores standout who received a University of Florida lacrosse scholarship, said in her petition comment.The helmet requirement was put on the FHSAA agenda by board member Russell Wambles, an Orlando high school athletic director.Due to an extraordinary amount of head injuries to female lacrosse players, a requirement to wear protective head gear is much needed, says Wambles background summary. That description of the girls lacrosse injury rate is being contested by many lacrosse coaches and supporters, who say girls playing soccer and basketball have more head injuries than lacrosse players. Are they going to tell basketball and soccer players to wear helmets, too? Hall asked.Boys lacrosse players are required to wear helmets, costing anywhere from $110 to more than $250. However, the boys game allows aggressive body checking and more physical tactics.Field players in girls lacrosse must wear eye protection, and goalies wear helmets. But girls rules impose a penalty if an opponents stick encroaches on a 7-inch bubble around a players head. Slashing fouls and rough checking also are penalties. Critics say requiring hard helmets for girls could add $9,000 to a programs costs. Equipping a full squad with a soft helmet boxerstyle padded headgear already an option to players could cost near $3,000. The FHSAA has not yet issued specifications for acceptable girls helmets, spokesman Corey Sobers said.Hall, and other coaches quoted in lacrosse articles, fear headgear could entice girls to play a more physical game that leads to more injuries.Well be a completely different game, Hall said. It will limit how universities look at our players in Florida.Coral Shores has the only high-school lacrosse program in the Keys. However, lacrosse fans in Key West have been preparing youth players in expectation that the Key West High Conchs could add the sport.Lacrosse is finally making its way to ... Key West and this mandate is going to severely set back the progress weve made, Marisa Giaco puzzi said in an online post.Critics contend game would see drastic changeLACROSSE The way the rules are now, girls players must wear only eye protection, while the boys must be clad in full protective helmets.Keynoter photos by KEVIN WADLOWBy KEVIN WADLOWSenior Staff Writer email@example.com
Lawmakers on Capitol Hill may be fighting over the standards of the lunches being served to American children in schools, but in households across the nation, parents are in growing agreement that organic food is the most healthy choice for the meals they are in charge of, shows a new study by the Organic Trade Association. The associations U.S. Families Organic Attitudes & Beliefs 2014 Tracking Study, a survey of more than 1,200 households in the United States with at least one child under 18, found that eight out of 10 American families have bought organic products one or more times in the past two years. In nearly half those families, concern about their childrens health is a driving force behind that decision. Ninety percent of parents report that they choose organic food products for their children at least sometimes, with almost a quarter of those parents saying they always buy organic. Moms and dads purchasing baby food are even more committed to organic; more than a third of those parents say they always choose organic for their infant or toddler. Meanwhile, 74 percent of day-care centers throughout the country now offer organic options for the children they serve. Choosing organic foods is increasingly a large part of how families are trying to take better care of themselves and the planet, said Laura Batcha, CEO of the Organic Trade Association. The proportion of families who say they never buy organic food has been on a steady decline for the past five years, and those who are choosing organic are buying more. OTA partnered with Kiwi Magazine on the study, which was conducted in late February and early March.The proportion of parents who reported that they never buy any organic products fell to 19 percent, a significant decline from just five years ago when almost 30 percent of households surveyed said that organic was never a choice. The findings are in line with the OTAs annual industry survey released earlier this year that showed that organic sales in the United States in 2013 jumped to $35.1 billion. OTA expects the upward trend to continue, pegging organic sales during 2014 to increase by 12 percent or more.OTAs consumer survey takes an in-depth look at the buying patterns of American households, who buys organic products, what products are being bought, the reasons behind those decisions, and the purchase patterns of the organic consumer.

Obesity surgery may stem diabetesObesity surgery may keep diabetes in remission even after 15 years in some patients, a study suggests. Long-term results were missing for more than half the patients who began the study and remission rates dropped off considerably. But still, 35 out of 115 patients remained diabetesfree 15 years after surgery. Also, 20 years after surgery, about 25 patients remained free of diabetes complications including eye and kidney problems. Results were similar for three types of weight-loss surgery: Gastric bypass, stomach banding and an operation that involves banding and stapling. The study of obese diabetics in Sweden began with about 340 who had surgery and 260 treated with medication and lifestyle changes. Results were published in the Journal of the American Medical Association.Previous research has found that weight-loss surgery is more effective than usual diabetes treatment at reversing the disease. The new results suggest the same thing but they arent conclusive because long-term data was missing for so many patients.The lead author, Dr. Lars Sjostrom of Sahlgrenska University Hospital in Gothenburg, Sweden, said his research is the longest follow-up to date but that the results need to be confirmed in more rigorous studies. Patients who had been diagnosed with diabetes for less than one year when the study began had the best long-term results. Scientists arent certain how obesity surgery cures diabetes. It usually results in much more weight loss than other treatment, which happened in the Swedish patients, and that may improve the bodys use of insulin. Also, gastric bypass, the most common obesity surgery in the United States, can alter hormones and other substances produced during digestion, which may reduce diabetes risk.More long-term evidence neededLINDSEY TANNERAssociated PressTO YOUR HEALTHPhoto courtesy ASSOCIATED PRESSObesity is widely considered a problem in the U.S., and surgery is one way people are dealing with it.

The Institute of Medicine said 250,000 people 19 and younger were treated in emergency rooms for concussions and other sportsor recreation-related brain injuries in 2009. Parents and coaches need to be prepared and educated about what the nature of this injury is, advised neuropsychologist Gerard Gioia of the Childrens National Medical Center in Washington and medical adviser to USA Football.Know the signsThe federal Centers for Disease Control and Preventions heads-up campaign teaches signs of concussion which may not appear right away and what steps to take. Symptoms include confusion, weakness, appearing dazed or stunned, lack of coordination, mood or behavior changes and even a brief loss of consciousness. Recent guidelines say anyone suspected of having a concussion should be taken out of play immediately and not allowed back until cleared by a trained professional.Gioia helped turn that advice into the concussion recognition and response smartphone app to offer guidance on the field. As for safety gear, last falls Institute of Medicine report found little scientific evidence that current sports helmet designs reduce the risk of concussion. Indeed, football helmets have gotten bigger and heavier in recent years but our concussion problem has not gotten better, said Dave Halstead, a sports biomechanics specialist at the University of Tennessee and the Southern Impact Research Center testing laboratory who advises the athletic equipment standards committee. To test rotational acceleration, labs will put helmets onto a crash test dummylike head with a moveable neck. A machine then positions a ram to hit the head from different directions, at different speeds and as if different-sized players were behind the impact.Its about time, was the reaction from concussion researcher Steven P. Broglio of the University of Michigan and National Athletic Trainers Association.Broglio wasnt involved in the NOCSAE move but compared it to how carcrash ratings focused first on head-on collisions and then on side impacts. Were adding another layer to get a better understanding of what helmets are capable of, he said. Its not clear whether helmet changes really will help, cautioned Dr. Thom Mayer, medical director of the NFL Players Association. But were committed to making sure we look at what are the most cutting-edge helmet testing standards available. This is a step in the right direction, he said. Helmet standards cant affect rotational acceleration caused by strong tackles to the body rather than a hit to the head, Halstead said. Specialists emphasize other steps, such as teaching players not to lower their heads during a hit, said USA Footballs Gioia. Helmets are a small part of the efforts that need to be undertaken to protect players against concussion, agreed NOCSAEs Oliver.Despite bigger helmets, concussions still problematicFrom Concussion, 1B Photo courtesy ASSOCIATED PRESSThis from the Southern Impact Research Center in Tennessee shows equipment that can test how football helmets perform against certain concussion-causing forces. There is no concussion-proof football helmet, but an organization that sets safety standards for athletic equipment was preparing new testing criteria.LIVING BRIEFSAnimal Farm open Sunday afternoonThe Monroe County Sheriffs Office Animal Farm will be open this Sunday from 1 to 3 p.m. so the community can meet the more than 200 animals at the farm.

Words veiled in art inspirationWords and Pictures starring Clive Owen and Juliette Binoche is a middle-aged romantic comedy masquerading as a war between literature and art. The battleground is a Maine prep school set in a small town somewhere along the states bucolic coastline. Owen plays Jack Marcus, the resident English teacher. The brash, unconventional Marcus has a love of language, his students and the vodka in his thermos. Dina Delsanto (Binoche) is the new art teacher. An acclaimed abstract painter, she is aloof, unattached and being crippled by rheumatoid arthritis. Though the argument that swirls around their flirting is ostensibly over which art form is more significant, in reality Marcus and Delsanto are fighting personal demons and diseases. Their attraction comes as a surprise. In the prep school, adult and teenage angst and intellectual jockeying fill the corridors, classrooms and the teachers lounge. There are contrivances around every corner, too. One is a word game Marcus plays that may soon irritate you as much as it does his fellow teachers. But for the most part, the florid flourishes are so lightly played by Owen and Binoche that screenwriter Gerald Di Pegos melodrama can almost be forgiven. It helps to have director Fred Schepisis hand on the rom-com wheel. He brings a kind of ease to the screen so actors flourish even when the material doesnt quite measure up. Words and Pictures is a slighter movie, but it has the same sort of frothy appeal of Schepisis Six Degrees of Separation with Will Smith in 1993 and his contemporary take on Cyrano de Bergerac starring Steve Martin, 1987s Roxanne. One of the films themes is the idea of inspiration what inspires an artist to paint, a writer to write and students to think. What focuses the Words and Pictures discussion and there is a lot in this very talky film is a showdown Marcus devises in part to save his job, which his drinking has put in jeopardy. The honors English and art students are to put the art-versus-literature debate on trial before the entire student body, using as their starting point a new poem Marcus has written and a new piece Delsanto paints after reading it. There are a few too many complications, including other tensions at the school that involve dating, bullying and social media. Most of it is embodied in the poorly drawn conflict between shy, talented art student Emily (Valerie Tian) and Swint (Adam DiMarco), her unwanted and increasingly insistent suitor. The film is far more interesting when it leaves the classroom behind. The coastal town, with spots in and around Vancouver, Canada, subbing for Maine, is beautifully rustic and becomes a lovely backdrop for romance through cinematographer Ian Bakers lens. The actors make a lovely pair as well in all their flirting and fighting through very grown-up problems. Owen is deft at shifting Marcus through various highs and lows, moving easily through dialogue laced with literary allusions, self-deprecating romantic gestures and destructive alcoholic rages. Binoche is a surprise. Not so much for what she says as for the painting she does. All of Delsantos art that we see in the film has been created by Binoche, some from her earlier work, some for the film. It is fascinating to watch as the actress in character paints a piece right in front of us. Taking what she knows of the art form and the way rheumatoid arthritis inhibits movement, Binoche creates a dramatic portrait of artistic expression and physical pain. As Words and Pictures moves toward its final chapter, you may find yourself liking Marcus and Delsanto. That the couple has any charm is thanks to Owen and Binoche. In fact, it is hard not to hope that theyll get another chance at romance some day the actors, that is.But its talky as the story slowly developsBy BETSY SHARKEYLos Angeles TimesMOVIE REVIEW Words and Pictures, rated PG-13, 111 minutes, playing in Key West. 91298 Overseas Hwy, Tavernierbbtheatres.comSHOWTIMES FOR FRI. 6/20 WED. 6/25 22 Jump Street (R) 1:55; 4:35; 7:15; 955Jersey Boys (R) 1:00; 4:00; 7:00; 10:00 How to Train Your Dragon 2 (PG) 1:45; 4:20; 6:50; 9:30 Edge of Tomorrow (PG13) 1:30; 4:10; 6:55; 9:40Maleficent (PG)1:40; 4:05; 7:10; 9:35 Clive Owen and Juliette Binoche fight as much as they love in Words and Pictures.

BOAT SALES AND MARINA BOAT SALES AND MARINACaribee CaribeeVisit us: Mile Marker 81.5 Bayside Islamorada, FL 33036 | 305.664.3431www.caribeeboats.com The pelican took a tight airborne turn to its left and then dove straight down, crashing into the shallow oceanside flat. Seemingly stunned, the bird sat upright for a few seconds and then extended its neck skyward to swallow the catch. This is a good sign when searching for pilchards, which are great bait fish. If the pelican kept its head down toward the surface of the water and slowly filtered the seawater through its slightly open bill, we would assume the catch was much smaller and possibly glass minnows, which wouldnt help us in our plan. The slight oil sheen on the surface also gave our crew some hope and a direction as to where the pilchards were. Step one of the wreck fishing on a bay boat day was coming together. Earlier that morning me, Capt. Seth Hopp and new SeaHunter boat owner Blane Woodfin loaded our gear onto the 24-footer in hopes of cast-netting pilchards and then fishing a few wrecks just off the Lower Keys. The crew moved into position for the throw and each time Hopp threw the net, the live well became darker. A blacked-out live well a well full of bait was a reality now. Summertime is not the most productive time to catch pilchards so luck was on our side. Two-foot seas and clear skies made the run offshore simple and comfortable. After reaching the waypoint, a quick scan of the bottom showed the majority of the fish just up current of the main structure. With a 1.5knot eastbound current and few effects from the wind, we started the drift just west of the main show of fish. Woodfin pinned a pilchard to the circle hook and dropped to the top of the wreck on an expanded Carolina rig (long leader). Within seconds, the rod was doubled and Woodfin, in his always calm and classy way, says good fish. The mid-sized amberjack made valiant attempts to return to the wreck and was a great start to the morning. After photos were taken, the fish was revived and released. That had been our plan from the beginning, release the majority of the catch, taking only enough fish for a few meals. Being selective was key and the amberjack was not on the menu. The next drift yielded a full-size margate that was sufficient for the take. Dinner was done, so all-out sportfishing was in order; everything caught from that point forward would be released. The third drift was the charm. With all of the conditions taken into account from the first two drifts, we were now dialed in. As Woodfin opened the bail on his 20pound class spinning outfit, we agreed that the same scenario would play out. Within minutes, he would be holding a bent rod fighting another fish, and thats exactly how it happened. But there was a difference with the third hookup compared to the previous two. This fish was more powerful and was making longer, more horizontal, runs. Ten minutes into the battle, Hopp suggested that it may be an African pompano. Earlier in the week, Capt. Austin Carlson from Two Conchs Charters had caught a few. As the fish came into view, the bright iridescence came shining through. African pompano are something to behold. Blinding beauty. Knowing the fish would be released, Hopp grabbed its tail and pulled the African aboard. Woodfin had caught one many years before but still marveled at the brilliance of the beautiful creature. These fish are somewhat rare and one of my personal favorites on the table. But a deal is a deal; the fish was going to be released. The first attempt was unsuccessful, as the African pompano slowly floated back to the top. Hopp grabbed it again and faced the fish into the current as we slowly idled in gear. With the lower gunnels on the bay boat, this was possible. Once we heard the deep grunting noises, Hopp said, Hes kicking his tail good now. The next attempt at release was successful. The African pompano disappeared into the blue water, out of sight. Sportfishing over a wreck on a bay boat. I get it now.
