Hurry up and register to get in on Biscayne
Bay Cleanup Day. The deadline is Friday, April 1,
but if you're with us online in the last few days of
March you can hurry less quickly.
Other than filing your income tax return on
time, one of the best things you can do in mid-April
is pick up trash from the shorelines of Biscayne
Bay. You put the stuff in big plastic bags, and then
someone comes and takes it away.
Why that chore is drudgery at home but a
pleasure once a year along the bay needs no deep-
er explanation than, "It just is."
One reason might be that Cleanup Day, on
Saturday April 16, is the high point of the annual
Baynanza, which celebrates the bay. There are
many related events, but this is the big one.
If you had 7,600 other people helping you
gather up the garbage twice a week at home, that
might be fun too, as long as you didn't have to
organize and entertain them and hand out attrac-
tive, artistic T-shirts.
At Baynanza, all that is taken care of
by Miami-Dade County's Department of
Environmental Resources Management. DERM
has been doing this for 29 years, in a county
where important buildings can't be counted on to
stand that long.
Pre-registration is necessary for coordination
of all the volunteers at 31 cleanup sites from the
headquarters at Oleta River State Park in North
Miami Beach all the way south to Homestead
Bayfront Park. When you register, pick your first
and second preferences.
Time's wasting. Click here: www.miami-
dade.gov/derm/baynanza.asp to sign up and look
over the other stuff that's going on this month.
Don't overlook the 15th annual Miami Riverday
Festival at Lummus Park, on Saturday April 2, at
250 NW North River Drive.
Oh yes, about that tax return: The IRS has
extended the filing deadline from Friday April 15
to Monday the 18 so give yourself a break. After
Baynanza you can return to that headache with a
fresh frame of mind.


Broward County Commissioner Kristin Jacobs
is one of the first 15 people appointed in March to
the Governance Coordinating Committee of the
National Ocean Council. That's a new outfit creat-
ed by a presidential executive order to work on
regional planning for the oceans, coastal zones
and Great Lakes.
The coordinating committee includes state,
local and tribal representatives. So far, Jacobs is
the only Floridian. She has been a county commis-

Big John McLaughlin is best known for his career in the television
and motion pictures where he worked as a underwater technical
advisor and stuntman for shows like "Flipper" and "Sea Hunt."

For Waterfront Times

Master diver Big John McLaughlin still gets into the
ocean whenever he can. And though he's slowed down
in recent years, he's determined to keep diving.
McLaughlin, 84, who moved to Fort Lauderdale
more than 40 years ago, is adamant about protecting the
ocean, which he considers Earth's most valuable
resource. He's an avid supporter of National Week of the
Ocean, which officially runs April 3-9 with some local
events continuing into June.
"We need to be vigilant," he said. "I have been
fighting for this cause all of my life, and I will keep up
that fight."
McLaughlin is perhaps best known for his career in
the television and motion picture industries where he








For 15 years the two-day
event at Dania Beach City
Marina, 101 N. Beach Road,
Dania Beach, has put kids
to work competing in craft
they've built themselves.
Sponsored by the Marine
Industries Association of
South Florida, the event is
hoped to bring excitement to
boat building and recreational
boating. For more information

living at age 84
worked as a stuntman and underwater technical advisor
for shows like "Flipper" and "Sea Hunt," and wrestled
sharks and served as a stunt double in several James
Bond movies.
He's a charter member of Week of the Ocean, a
grassroots non-profit organization recognized by the
National Marine Educators Association for over 30 years
of education and advocacy.
In 2007 the group gave McLaughlin a Lifetime
Achievement Award for his efforts, which include the
1993 establishment of an anchor zone regulation for big
tankers waiting to enter Port Everglades.
Along with diver Bill Raymond, McLaughlin video-
taped an oil tanker's anchor dragging along the third reef
off Fort Lauderdale.

reefs," McLaughlin said. "It took 10 years of lobbying,
paperwork and underwater photography to get that
done. But we got those ships to move. We got Congress
to draw a line on the charts.
"Nobody paid me to do that," he said. "I did that all
on my own. I care deeply about this cause, and more
people need to be made aware that the ocean is a very
important treasure that we need to leave to future gener-
ations in good condition."
McLaughlin has been involved with the sea ever
since he can remember.
"I was brought up on the docks, on the beach, in
the ocean. I heard all the local sea stories, and I knew
that's what I wanted to do with my life. It just became
part of me."
He worked as a lifeguard in his hometown of
Charleston, S.C. in 1939 when he was just 12 years old.
He served as a Navy diver during World War II, and later
worked for the Navy as a civilian engineer and machinist.
He moved to Fort Lauderdale in the late 1960s, tak-
ing a job as a diving instructor. It was around that time
he got involved with the entertainment industry.
He especially enjoyed working with Lloyd Bridges
on "Sea Hunt."
"He was one of my favorites," McLaughlin said. "He
wasn't egotistical at all. He was just a regular guy, and he
treated you like an equal."
Bridges praised McLaughlin on more than one occa-

Fishing-doers: Report a tagged fish, receive a tee


Waterfront Times Columnist


Anybody here ever
catch a tagged fish? Or even
know what one is?
Hands, anyone? Oh
good, lots of hands for the
second question.
For you few who don't
h . f . I know, or won't raise your
t m' hands because your finger-
nails are dirty, a tagged fish is
one that's been caught, usually by a scientist, and stuck
with a skinny yellow stick-like thing just below the dor-
sal fin. Then the fish is turned loose.
The yellow thing is called a dart tag. The dart part
is at the business end, barbed like a harpoon and stuck
in the fish's flesh. It's not meant to be removed easily.
It must be awfully annoying, but the poor fish
can't even reach back to scratch it.
I'd bet other fish have tried to help, or at least mis-
taken the tag for bait and bitten it. Yellow is a good
color for artificial lures, you know.
Like you, I've never caught a tagged fish - never
in fresh water, never in salt. That's too bad, because a
scientist puts a fish through that ordeal intending for it
to be caught by someone like us, who will report
where we got it.
I've always considered that close to impossible, or
so random that it's akin to winning a lottery, except
without getting rich. Now, though, our chances look
pretty good - of catching a tagged fish, not getting rich.

River Lagoon and nearby inlets.
That's good. If we catch only one fish all day, but
it's tagged and we tell the FWRI about it, we can feel
pretty good about ourselves. You know what else?
They'll send us a T-shirt with a picture of the fish.
Alexis Trotter, one of the biologists working on
this, sent some mid-March numbers that indicate our
chances to score are pretty good:
Common snook tagged: 505, with 83 recaptured.
Twelve have been caught more than once. Two have
been caught four times.
Fat snook tagged: 26, with two recaptures. One
was caught twice.
Bass tagged: 318, with 79 recaptured. Nineteen
have been caught more than once. One has been
caught four times.
Count me in. You too?
The Sebastian, St. Lucie and Loxahatchee are
large territories, but at least the knowledge is a start
and the targets are among the most attractive game
fish in Florida.
FWC says the purpose of the study is to find out
more than what's already known about how bass and
snook use overlapping habitats and diets.
If you fish for bass within a few miles of the
Atlantic coast, you may know already that snook often
move far inland to fresh water, especially in winter, and
that they adapt to it pretty well. It's not unusual to catch
them there, using bass tackle, until warmer weather
and water beckon them back home where it's salty.
If there's a flood control gate in the way, they tend

to hang around until it's opened again. Never pass one
of those without throwing a few casts at it. Change
your bass leader to 25- or 30-pound test for snook.
In most fish-tagging projects I hear about, recap-
tures are pretty random, like tagging tarpon in the Gulf
of Mexico. They travel a lot, and now and then some-
one catches one with a tag, but what are the odds? I'd
wager they're about the same as winning a Lotto jack-
pot, which I've also never done.
I've quit buying lottery tickets. I think my
rather weak will to gamble can be redirected more
enthusiastically and cheaply to fishing for tagged
bass and snook.
There isn't any particular technique for that. As far
as anyone knows, fish wearing tags inhabit the same
places and eat the same forage as fish without tags.
It would be good to know if tags change the ways
of fish, or the ways other fish react to them. I can imag-
ine an encounter something like this:
Bass: "What's that yellow thing stuck on your back?"
Snook: "Tag of some kind."
Bass: "It looks funny. You must get teased a lot."
Snook: "Not really. I'm what's known as an apex
predator. Mess with me, I'll eat you."
Bass: "I'm an apex predator too, you know.
Anyway, no offense intended."
Snook: "None taken. Have a nice swim."
When we catch a tagged fish, we're supposed to
help the researchers by making a note of the line of
info that's printed in tiny lettering on the yellow tag,
copy it all down and measure the fish quickly enough
to release it alive and then tell the scientists what it
says on the tag and where we caught that fish.
We'll do that by phoning the Tag Return Hotline at
800-367-4461 or mailing to tagretumrn@MyFWC.com.

When Florida's Fish & Wildlife Conservation
Commission meets in Tallahassee Wednesday and
Thursday, April 4-7, it will consider proposed final
rules to modify regulations for bonefish and redfish,
two of the most popular shallow-water sport species.
Also on the agenda is a staff proposal for a pilot
program to establish vessel mooring and anchoring
fields at St. Augustine and in the northwest corner of
Indian River Lagoon in Martin County.
For bonefish, the new rules mandate catch and
release fishing, formalizing common angler practice. If
you land a bonefish you'll have to set it free right away,
but there will be exceptions:
If you're fishing in an organized tournament,
you'll be able to keep two fish in a live well to take
them to the weigh station.
If you catch a potential state or IGFA world record
bonefish, you can bring it in the boat only long enough
to measure, weigh and photograph it for your record
application before turning it loose.
For redfish, formally called red drum, the
Commission is expected to enact three separate regula-
tion regions - northeast, northwest and south - coin-
ciding those already in effect for spotted sea trout.
Based on uncertain estimates that redfish exceed
abundance goals in the two northern districts, commis-

sioners are expected to raise the bag limits there from
one fish to two per angler. There will be a statewide
limit of eight redfish per boat.
New or modified temporary rules also are being con-
sidered for Gulf of Mexico gag grouper in state waters to
match the rules for gags in federal waters. This year only,
there will be a two-month open season from Sept. 16 to
Nov. 15, with harvest forbidden the rest of the time.

The Commission also plans to adopt federal rules
for Gulf amberjack, with an annual closed season in
June and July.
Regulatory changes for permit, pompano and
African pompano are in an earlier stage of consideration.
Among other things, the proposed rule would
establish special permit regulation zones on both
coasts of Florida. On the east side, the zone would be
in Biscayne Bay south of the Rickenbacker Causeway
and south of a line running due east from Cape Florida
at 25 o40' north latitude.
The Gulf zone would be south of Cape Romano,
marked by a line running west to the mainland along
25050' north latitude.

FWC's law enforcement division is recommending
the St. Augustine and Indian River Lagoon mooring field
sites on the advice of a Boating Advisory Council. The
proposals are meant to accommodate transient vessels.
A possible site in Biscayne Bay, next to Miami's
dinner Key Marina, is illustrated in the proposal but
not recommended to the commission.
More details on the commission agenda and all
those proposals can be found on the commission web-
site at http://myfwc.com/about/commission/commis-

Everybody who catches big tuna, swordfish, bill-
fish and sharks ought to know how to bring them to the
boat and release them unharmed, but do they? Do you?
Just in case, you're lucky enough to land one, better
get a copy of NOAAs "Careful Catch and Release
Guidelines for Atlantic Highly Migratory Species."
Federal regulations require you to take care to assure that
fish's survival, and that brochure helps you to comply.

Projects like that and other worthwhile things that
our state Fish and Wildlife Conservation staff does are
paid for by... anybody?
That's right - they're paid for by us, with money
we pay for our Florida fishing licenses and all our fish-
ing tackle, whose prices include a federal excise tax.
That government gives this government a share of the
tax, based on our number of licensed fishing-doers.
I mention that now because Joe Negron, a state
legislator from Stuart, has introduced a bill to abolish
fishing licenses in Florida. I was tempted to begin this
month's column by mocking and ridiculing him.
Almost did. Can you sense the hesitation?
Shortly after Sen. Negron filed SB 744, other fish-
ing writers scolded him for ignorance. They implied (as
I read it) that a man who makes legislation about
something he plainly doesn't understand must have
been elected by voters who, like him, don't know what
they're doing.
Every word was published with a straight face,
indicating that Negron was being taken seriously.


Not by me, he wasn't. My inclination was to dance
a circle around that state senator with my thumbs in
my ears and fingers wiggling, making funny faces and
yelling "Nyah, nyah, nyah, dopey Joe!"
Not literally, you know, but literarily.
Negron reminds me of the U.S. senator who want-
ed, long ago, to save money by abolishing the U.S.
Patent Office. Why? We didn't need it any longer, he
argued, because everything had been invented already.
I hesitated to mock Negron because I found out
that he (as a defense lawyer) is a member of the
Florida Innocence Commission, whose admirable mis-
sion is to find ways to prevent wrongful convictions in
criminal trials. Nobody is made to serve on that outfit.
Also, even though it's wrong-headed and simplis-
tically unaware of reality, his bill to abolish fishing
licenses is attractively brief and simple.
If you know any state legislators, call and make
sure they understand what Negron is trying to do even
if he doesn't.
If you don't know your legislators, here's a good
reason to make their acquaintance. Look them up at

Pirates: Enemies

of mankind


Waterfront Times Columnist

In Latin, hostis human generis
translates to "enemy of mankind."
Derived from admiralty law, it references
a particular form of bad guy - pirates!
The phrase dates back to an ancient
doctrine that recognized piracy as being
so heinous that any authority from a rec-
ognized nation (i.e. a navy, army, or
even a acknowledged "privateer") had
the right to pursue, prosecute and pun-
ish piracy without fear of breaching
international protocol. In fact, the doc-
trine even allows a country to deal with
pirates as they wish, even if its interests
were not directly attacked.
Until the last few years piracy
seemed more of an anachronism than a
modern day concern. During most of the
20th century, despite two world wars
and the Cold War, the domination of
large naval powers with global interests
made large-scale piracy impractical.
Arguably, the military escalation of
superpowers with global interests in the
1900s was a major factor in keeping
piracy at bay for such a long stretch.
In fact, the existence of piracy is
something of a bellwether, reflecting the
overall stability of the international com-
munity. It also illustrates the ability of
large countries to act as effective peace-
keepers and protectors of their citizens
outside their domestic borders. In this
respect, the apocryphal observation by
one American politician in saying that
the Cold War may someday be called the
"good old days" may not be far off.
When the Indian Ocean was heavi-
ly patrolled by American and the former
Soviet fleets, it was foolhardy for
Somalians to threaten merchant ship-
ping in the area. Response by either
country's navy would have been quick
and harsh - if only to demonstrate their
effectiveness in policing the region.


Even with the current ongoing War
on Terrorism, the end of the Soviet
Union has resulted in a protracting of
most nations' navies, as resources are
diverted to other political interests. This
has resulted in citizens of unstable and
govern-less states in coastal areas to
seek occupations in the now-lucrative
activity of piracy.
Slowly the international communi-
ty is realizing that piracy will not disap-
pear without resolve from the maritime
nations affected by it. Almost forgotten
doctrines such as hostis human generis
are returning to consciousness as the
international community attempts to
deal with the pirate problem. Though
recent piracy began off the coast of
Somalia, it is now reaching farther into
the Indian Ocean as the pirates have
become more successful.
For a time, it seemed the problem
was getting better, particularly after
the U.S. Navy's successful recaptur-
ing of the Maersk Alabama and its
captain. However, after February's
killing of four Americans on their
yacht, the S/V Quest, it seems the
pirates in the east African area are
actually getting bolder.
Since the Quest, it again appears
that the international community is pay-
ing attention. Reports indicate that even
the Indian Navy has decided to take a
more active role in pirate prevention.
Yachts traveling the region are reported-
ly seeking military escorts before they
pass through the Suez Canal.
The grassroots Save Our Seafarers
(SOS), made up of maritime profession-

Shopping on

the cheap


Waterfront Times Columnist

I received my Port Supply Annual
Catalog in the mail this week even
though I am no longer affiliated with the
organization where my name is listed as
the "port supply representative."
Sometimes it is next to impossible
to remove your name from a list. And if
it's beneficial, why bother?
A case in point: I applied for a
home equity loan several years ago.
However, I never signed the final docu-
ments. The line of credit showed up on
my credit report and the credit reporting
agency refused to remove it, claiming
they checked it out and confirmed it was
my name. They couldn't understand I
had no credit line. I gave up arguing
because it looked better to show that
someone had extended $100,000 of
credit to me.
Even my own "Waterfront Times"
lists my name on its event calendar as
the contact for a yacht club that has
changed its name and which I'm no
longer associated. The listing magically
comes and goes.
Maybe my life is boring, but I enjoy
reading catalogs. One of the most inter-
esting things to read in the Port Supply
catalog is "The West Advisor" series,
located throughout the catalog and its
counterpart West Marine Catalog.
Prior to working for West Marine
several years ago, I read all the advisors
and thus became an expert. On a recent
visit to the store, a customer asked a
sales associate, "how far can you see
with binoculars?" I'm not suggesting
this was a stupid question, but had she
read the West Advisor on selecting
binoculars she would have known. (If I
still worked there, I would have suggest-
ed the "Palin" model by Steiner. You can
see Russia from your back porch).
As a writer and reader of books, I


A


checked out the book section. The 66th
edition of Chapman's is still the book to
have. I checked to see what's offered as
an eBook. Few nautical titles are
offered. Storage space is always at a pre-
mium on a boat, so having everything
on your Kindle would be the way to go.
You can go to a link on Amazon and
send a message to the publisher that
you want a particular book to be avail-
able on Kindle.
While perusing the internet, I
came across four booksellers selling
Chapman's 64th Edition for over $100.
Has this edition become a collector's
item? If so, I made a good investment
when I bought it.
The "Boater's Pocket Reference" by
Thomas McEwen is another great book
offered in the catalog. This pocket-sized
alternative to Chapman's contains an
amazing amount of information.
In the clothing section, Port Supply
now offers the Tilley hat. Shortly after I
bought mine at Outdoor World, West
Marine started carrying the brand. I
could have saved 50 percent as an
employee. Timing is everything.
Tilley is a great hat. Not only does
Port Supply list it for $13 more than
most other retailers, they fail to mention
the lifetime guarantee, which somewhat
justifies the price over cheap imitations.
While in Wal-Mart a few weeks ago, a
lady asked about my hat. I told her she
could get it at Outdoor World for about
$75. I thought she was going to pass out.
Years ago George W. advised the
country to go shopping. With the price
of fuel, catalog shopping makes sense.
So thanks Port Supply for the catalog.
I'll put it on my shelf next to Boat
Owners Warehouse, Lewis Marine and
Defender catalogs.

Week of the Ocean keeps environmental mission going


BIG JOHN 1I

sion and was quoted as saying he learned a lot from him
during their time together.
Until a couple of years ago, McLaughlin was busy
giving lectures at schools and special events to educate
kids about preservation. Short-term memory problems
have made public speaking difficult.
"I haven't been able to do that much the past year
or so, which saddens me," he said. "That was one of my
favorite things."
But that doesn't stop him from getting into the aqua-
marine water whenever he can. He still free dives off Fort
Lauderdale's beaches.
"I'm very comfortable in the water," he said. "I don't
know what I'd do without it."

April 3 though April 9 is National Week of the
Ocean. The program is sponsored by Week of the Ocean,
Inc., a Fort Lauderdale non-profit organization co-found-
ed by Cynthia Hancock and her husband, Dane.
National Week of the Ocean was founded with a
mission of preserving the ocean for future generations,
Hancock said.
The program boasts high-profile members
including former astronaut and ocean explorer
Scott Carpenter; Norman Baker, navigator of Thor
Heyerdahl's Ra expeditions; Eugenie Clark, zoologist
and shark expert; Sylvia Earle, marine biologist; Tap


Pryor, aquaculture pioneer; Andreas Rechnitzer,
record diver, and Stan Waterman, Emmy Award-win-
ning underwater photographer.
"National Week of the Ocean members encourage
year-round ocean study from the arts to commerce,
from history to foods, from endangered sea creatures to
issues such as offshore drilling or ocean dumping,"
Hancock said.
Week of the Ocean offers four ocean awareness
concepts: the Campus Event, the School Marine Fair,
the Community Festival and the Local Chapter.
Outreach programs include National Week of the
Ocean and marine education programs like "Mr. and
Mrs. Fish."
Members receive periodic newsletters and an annu-
al membership directory. Activities include oceanic pro-
grams, socials, field trips and the opportunity to initiate
and direct local and national ocean projects.
"Other ways to celebrate include penning a letter to
the editor regarding local ocean issues, hosting a dinner
to benefit an organization with an ocean mission or plan-
ning student studies," Hancock said.
Associated upcoming events include the Mother
Ocean Day Awards & Luncheon at Cinema Paradiso in
Fort Lauderdale on May 7 and the School Marine Fair
from May 27-29 at the IGFA Fishing Hall of Fame &
Museum in Dania Beach.
"It is not an idle statement when national co-chair
Scott Carpenter, astronaut/aquanaut says, 'If the ocean
dies, we die;" Hancock said.


For more information, visit www.national-week-of-
the-ocean.org or call Cynthia Hancock at 954-462-5573

be pushed back? I think it's hard to tell.
It was recently reported that one group of
Somali pirates offered to discount the ransoms on
the vessels they captured for a quick turn-around.
This does not sound like a group that worries about
being an enemy of mankind.
Consider that the present problem in the Indian
Ocean was due partly to Somalia's political instabil-
ity. Now we're seeing instability in North Africa -
including Libya - the original enclave of the
Barbary Pirates, which the U.S. went to war with
200 years ago following the American Revolution. So
much for anachronisms...

Laying back in Key West for a little island time


The New York Times Syndicate
Key West, haven to artists and
writers, chefs and hippies, is somehow
more Caribbean than Floridian. The
indie-minded transplants work hard to
keep it that way. One-speed bicycles
weave their way through colorful vil-
lage streets, crammed with as many
chickens as cars.
Happy hour blends into dinner.
And everything is oriented around the
ocean, from the fish market-driven
menus and the nautical-inspired art, to
the sunrise worshipers who gather each
dawn and the tipplers who wave good-
bye at sunset. Be careful or you might
just catch what islanders call "Keys dis-
ease" a sudden desire to cut ties with
home and move there.
Ditch the car: As any self-respecting
bohemian local knows, the best way to
get around Key West is on two wheels.
Bike rental companies offer drop-off
service to many hotels. Two reliable out-
fits are Eaton Bikes (830 Eaton St.; 305-
294-8188; eatonbikes.com) and Re-Cycle
(5160 Overseas Highway; U.S. 1; 305-
292-3336; recyclekw.com), with rentals
for about $18 for one day, $10 for each
additional. Orient yourself by biking over
to the Truman Annex, a palm-lined oasis
of calm made up of two-story white-
washed buildings that surrounds the
Little White House (111 Front St.; 305-


S..Hid4 I The New. ,
Every morning, a dozen spiritual seekers - an eclectic mix of tattooed artists, elementary-school
teachers and others - assemble at Fort Zachary Taylor State Park for Yoga on the Beach.


294-9911; trumanlittlewhitehouse.com).
Cleanse the palate: Key West chefs
pride themselves on a culinary philoso-
phy of simple cooking and fresh ingredi-
ents. A perfect example is the Flaming
Buoy Filet Co. (1100 Packer St.; 305-295-
7970; theflamingbuoy.com), a year-old
nouveau seafood restaurant owned and
run by two Cincinnati transplants, Fred
Isch and his partner, Scot Forste. The 10
rustic wood tables are hand-painted in
orange and yellow; the lights are low and
the crowd amiable, skewing slightly
older. This is home cooking, island style.
Favorites include a black bean soup,
swirled with Cheddar cheese, sour cream
and cilantro ($9), and the fresh catch of


the day ($24), which is served with a
broccoli cake and tasty mashed potatoes.
Small world: You can't bike a block
on this island without bumping into a
would-be Gauguin wielding a palette and
paintbrush. There's an outsize and
vibrant arts scene that's evident at places
like Lucky Street Gallery (1130 Duval St.;
305-294-3973; luckystreetgallery.comrn)
and the Gallery on Greene (606 Greene
St.; 305-294-1669; galleryongreene.com).
For a warm introduction to the scene,
head to the Armory, a rifle storage house
built in 1903 and recently converted into
the Studios of Key West (600 White St.;
305-296-0458; tskw.org), an airy, art-
filled space with rotating exhibitions,


evening folk concerts, talks by artists-in-
residence and drop-in art classes. Expect
to find your barista there, and the bike
rental guy and the woman who will sell
you a T-shirt tomorrow. It's a small town.
Mix it up: While Key West nightlife
has long been synonymous with boozy
karaoke and mediocre margaritas, new
watering holes like the tiny Orchid Bar
(1004 Duval St.; 305-296-9915; orchid-
keyinn.com) are quietly moving in a
more sophisticated direction. Bartenders
there take mixology seriously. Try the St.-
Germain 75, with Hendrick's Gin, St.-
Germain, fresh lemon juice and
Champagne ($12). This Deco-cool sliver
of a space overlooks an illuminated pool
and draws a mellow crew.
Salute the sun: Every morning, a
dozen spiritual seekers an eclectic mix of
tattooed artists, elementary-school teach-
ers and others assemble at Fort Zachary
Taylor State Park for Yoga on the Beach
(305-296-7352; yogaonbeach.com).
Nancy Curran and Don Bartolone, yogis
from Massachusetts, teach energetic
vinyasa-style yoga in a clearing of pines,
facing the sea. The $18 drop-in fee
includes state park entrance fee, muslin
drop cloths and yoga mats.
A taste of France: An island of trans-
plants means there is plenty to sample
from the world over. Craving France?
Stop at Bahama Village's newest import,
La Creperie Key West (300 Petronia St.;
305-517-6799; lacreperiekeywest.com),
where Yolande Findlay and Sylvie Le
Nouail, Brittany transplants, serve crepes
in an open kitchen. Start with a savory
crepe like ratatouille ($10.25), then move
on to something sweet like red velvet

Finger food satisfies the appetite in earthy ways


For The New York Times Syndicate

It doesn't take a degree in anthropol-
ogy to explain why eating with your fin-
gers is always satisfying. Food just tastes
better, and you feel - in a deep, primitive
sense - that you're really eating.
Now since I spend half my time
barking "No fingers!' at my children, I
feel hypocritical espousing the joys of
Neanderthal-style dining, but even eti-
quette guides permit the cutlery-free
approach to ribs.
Although I think of this dish of
maple- and apple-flavored roast chicken
and ribs as perfect when feeding two
generations at once, you don't need chil-
dren around to have an excuse to eat it.
It practically cooks itself.
If meat is involved, you can find me
sousing it in flavor-enhancing tenderizing
liquids before grilling, broiling, baking or
roasting it. This is not mere habit. The
more you do to the meat before you cook
it, the less you have to do during or after.
In this case apple juice or cider gives
tang and wards off stringiness, a small
amount of oil keeps it juicy and maple
syrup, soy, star anise, cinnamon and gar-
lic impart deep, luscious flavor. If no ten-
der-palated bambini are present, I always
add a fiery sprinkling of dried chili flakes
to the marinade, too (or replace the veg-
etable oil with chili oil).
The two meats work well in con-
junction: the relatively lean chicken is
enhanced in taste and texture by the
pork ribs, which give off flavorsome fat
as they roast. You can use whatever ribs
you like; meaty ones are best, but as long
as the ribs are separated, rather than in a
slab, they'll do just fine.


Spare ribs and chicken thighs are marinated together to enhance the taste and texture of both.


As for the chicken, I know there is
an overweening tendency to go for breast
meat, especially breast meat that's off
the bone and - to make matters even
worse, from my point of view - without
skin. But I implore you to use thighs,
bone in, skin on. I don't say that because
of the eating-with-hands argument (even
I use a knife and fork for the chicken
pieces) but because the meat is more
tender and the taste infinitely better.
Darker meat holds up much better to this
kind of roasting.
A baked potato, plunked on a side
plate with sour cream flecked with
chives (butter for the youngsters) to dol-
lop inside it, is the perfect accompani-
ment. Otherwise you could serve a green
salad and some good country bread.
For dessert, children are always
happy with a bowlful of vanilla ice


cream. If you feel like puttering in the
kitchen a bit you could reward adults
by making a batch of cappuccino wal-
nut cookies.
Actually the coffee element in such
cookies is not strong, so children above a
certain age may like them, but let's not
worry about pandering to the junior con-
tingency all the time. (So what if they
don't?) I love these cookies still a little
warm, with cold ice cream. They are so
simple to make that they could be a
finale to any meal.
You might have to look around a
bit for the cappuccino chips. (I have
found them on the Web.) But you
could also use regular chocolate chips
and add a little instant espresso pow-
der to the flour when you mix the
cookies together. Sometimes it's nice
to play a little.


1. In a pitcher or mixing bowl
whisk together the apple cider, maple
syrup, vegetable oil and soy sauce. Add
star anise, cinnamon stick, garlic and hot
pepper flakes.
2. In a large freezer bag or bowl
combine pork and chicken. Pour in the
apple cider mixture, and seal bag or
cover bowl. Refrigerate overnight or up
to 2 days.
3. Remove marinated mixture from
refrigerator, and heat oven to 400
degrees. Pour contents of bag or bowl
(including liquid) into a large roasting
pan. Turn chicken pieces skin side up.
4. Roast until chicken is opaque
throughout and ribs are tender, about 1
1/4 hours; 35 to 40 minutes into roasting
turn ribs over, but leave chicken skin side
up. Serve hot. Yield: 4 to 6 servings.

with dark Belgian chocolate, strawber-
ries and English custard ($9.95).
Island Style: Just because islanders
pride themselves on being casual does-
n't mean they don't want to look great.
Besame Mucho (315 Petronia St.; 305-
294-1928; besamemucho.net) is an old-
world general store packed with every-
thing from Belgian linen to Dr.
Hauschka skin care, to delicate baubles
like tiny beaded pyrite necklaces.
Across the street is Wanderlust kw (310
Petronia St.; 305-509-7065; wander-
lustkw.com), a boutique that opened in
July 2010. It's stocked with well-priced
dresses (a navy blue 1940s-style slip
dress with puffed sleeves was a mere
$68), and whimsical watercolors of Key
West houses by local artists ($15). For
swank decor, check out Jan George
Interior Design (600 Frances S.; 305-
509-8449; jangeorge.com), a furniture
shop that carries dreamy stark-white
couches from the Italian line
Gervasoni. The owners, Jan Oostdyk
and his spouse, George Rutgers, landed
as tourists from the Netherlands and
never left.
Drinks at sunset: Skip the hustle of
Mallory Square and work your way
through the white tablecloth dining room
to Louie's Backyard Afterdeck Bar (700
Waddell Ave.; 305-294-1061; louiesback-
yard.com), which has a large wood-
planked patio that faces the ocean and
the setting sun. A gregarious crowd of
artists and New England snowbirds gath-
ers daily. It's like an outdoor Cheers.
Dining on Duval: Since opening in
2002, the restaurant Nine One Five (915

younger crowd. If you stick around after
dinner, Point5 becomes a party, with
D.J. George spinning funk and soul and
the island's gay and straight worlds
dancing together under filament lights
strung outdoors.
Drag show: Drag shows are Key
West's patrimony. Still at the top of his
game is Randy Roberts, performing as
Bette Midler, Cher and Lady Gaga at

After the delicious one-hour drag
show, hoof it down to Porch (429
Caroline St. No. 2; 305-517-6358; thep-
orchkw.com), a wine and artisanal
beer bar that opened in July on the
luminous first floor of a Victorian
mansion, just off Duval. Chris Schultz,
a former travel writer from Minnesota,
installed a black banquette, painted
the walls a soothing gray and invited
an eager crowd of 20- and 30-some-
things who moved to Key West to give
island life a go.
Hair of the dog: Late night?
Sarabeth's (530 Simonton St.; 305-293-
8181; sarabethskeywest.com), housed
in what was the island's first syna-
gogue, serves omelets and tropical
juices that are the ideal detox. Can't be
bothered to dress? Bad Boy Burrito
(1220 Simonton; 305-292-2697; bad-


drag shows
boyburrito.com) will deliver a kobe
beef burrito ($8) or fish taco ($9) to
you, poolside.
Seaworthy Pursuits: With all the
shopping and eating, it is easy to forget
why you're really here: to get off the
street and onto the water. Lazy Dog (5114
Overseas Highway; 305-295-9898; lazy-
dog.com) offers two- and four-hour
kayaking or two-hour paddleboard tours
through crystal clear coastal waters and
into the deep green waterways of the
gnarled mangrove forests. Or if you're
just looking to dip a toe in the sea, bike
over to Clarence S. Higgs Memorial
Beach, a strip of sand in front of the
genial beach bar restaurant Salute! (1000
Atlantic Blvd.; 305-292-1117; saluteonthe-
beach.com), rent a beach chair for $10,
and kick back. You're on island time,
after all.


Cappuccino cookies make for a sophisticated finale


GALLEY


1. Heat oven to 375 degrees. Line a
baking sheet with a silicone liner or
parchment paper.
2. With an electric mixer or by
hand, cream together the butter,
sugar and light brown sugar. Beat in
the corn syrup and vinegar, then the
egg and vanilla; mixture may appear
slightly lumpy. Add salt, baking soda
and flour, and mix until smooth. Add
cappuccino chips and walnuts, and
fold in well.
3. Using a cookie scoop or a
spoon, scoop up 2 tablespoons of
dough at a time, and shape into
mounds about 2 inches apart on bak-


ing sheet. (Dough will probably
have to be baked in 2 batches.)
Bake each batch, turning sheet
halfway through cooking. For
chewy cookies, bake till lightly
bronzed but still soft at center,
about 10 minutes; for crisper cook-
ies, bake 2 minutes longer.
4. Cool cookies on baking sheet 3
to 5 minutes before transferring care-
fully to a wire rack to finish cooling.
Store in an airtight container.
Yield: 14 large cookies.
Note: A pound of cappuccino
chips is $4.50, plus shipping, from
www.bakerscatalogue.com.
