Monroe County Mayor
Mario Di Gennaro has called a
special meeting for Wednesday
to discuss better coordination
on sewer plans and potential
state funding.
The meeting, he said, is in
response to an invitation issued
July 25 by the committee chair-
man of the Florida House
Environment and Natural
Resources Council.
"The door has been opened
for us and I think we should
take advantage of the opportu-
nity," Di Gennaro said.
In a letter to State Rep. Stan
Mayfield, the Monroe County
mayor said it was time to "now
put aside parochial local politi-
cal interests."
During an interview with the
Keynoter, Di Gennaro expand-
ed on that comment to say he
personal\ doesn't have a prob-
lem if the county doesn't wind
up playing the lead role in coor-

dinating with the state.
"My bottom line is: what's
the most cost effective and effi-
cient manner to get this done.
Let's do the right thing. My
goal is to save my taxpayers
money and that's what I'm try-
ing to do."
Wednesday's special-call
meeting begins at 10 a.m. and
will be held at the Harvey
Government Center in- Key
Later that same day, bids will
be opened on a sewer plant to
service Rocklard, Big Coppitt
and Geiger Keys.
The Florida Keys Aqueduct
Authority is handling that proj-
ect under contract as the coun-
ty's wastewater authority.
At the County Commission's
July meeting, a spokesman for
Key West Resort Utilities asked
the board to consider using the
private utility to service those
three areas instead of building a

new plant.
Aqueduct Executive
Director Jim Reynolds said six
contractors have qualified to
bid on the project. He said it's
unclear what will come out of
Wednesday's special call coun-
ty commission meeting.
State Rep. Ron Saunders,
who helped initiate the state
contacts with Mayfield's office,
said he's also waiting to see
what emerges from
Wednesday's meeting.
"This is not designed to stop
or replace what we're currently
doing," Di Gennaro said, "but
rather to assist."
In his letter to Mayfield, Di
Gennaro also wrote that he sup-
ported the idea of moving diffi-
cult wastewater decisions
"away from our well-intended
though sometimes fractious
governmental bodies.., to a
body that I would like to believe
would be technically more
adept at...pursuing our waste-
water goals."

new positions?" one employee
wrote to Nuegent. "With
respect to you and your office,
the employees see this as
another slap in the face."
Nuegent said that while he
does not question the expertise
that Puto, a certified emer-
gency manager, would bring to
the table, now is not the time to
be hiring high-priced employ-
"In light of the budgetary
constraints right now I ques-
tion the need to employ some-
one at this time," Neugent
said. "The County Admin-
istrator [Tom Willi] feels he is
all-knowing and goes and does
Willi said the job structures
within emergency management
are being realigned. What was
previously the senior director
position held by longtime
county employee Billy Wagner
will now be known as director,
and what was known as direc-
tor would now be known as
deputy director.
Toner currently holds the
director position, while
Wagner's senior director slot
has been vacant since he
retired in November 2006.
"Irene will essentially be
the senior," Willi said. "I have
to make changes to the job
description and it has to be
posted... that's the process."
Neugent said Toner "has

had her detractors," but ques-
tions the need to hire another
employee since Wagner has
been gone as long as he has.
"When he left there was a
feeling amongst the commis-
sion and the administrator that
maybe we can do this without
a person filling this position,"
Neugent said. "Now that we've
gone through a year [without
Wagner], I would think some-
one would tell us why we need
to employ another person."
Neugent said he believed
the county would employ
Wagner on a consulting basis
during hurricane season rather
than hire another full-time
Wagner said he if came
back to work for the county
before Nov. 30, 2007, his
retirement benefits would be
"After that time I would be
available to do what I could to
support the operation, if I'm
not tied up with my family's
business," he said.
Even Puto said he agreed
with Neugent's sentiments
regarding hiring new employ-
ees as the county continues to
lay off others.
"If she's leaving they need
to replace her," Puto said. "Do
they need to add another per-
son? The answer is no, espe-
cially since they are letting
people go."
The job is listed at "Pay
Grade 13," which ranges from
$66,429 to $102,966.


'Glades deleted

The unexpected deletion of
the Everglades from an inter-

Keys Opinion

View bridge disaster

as our wake-up call
Today's Keynoter lists a dozen bridges in Monroe County that
appear on a state list as "deficient."
We don't know about you, but the word "deficient" conjures
many images. But who could have imagined the horror seen in
Minneapolis when that interstate highway span plunged into the
Mississippi River while carrying rush hour traffic?
That Minneapolis bridge was also on a list of "deficient"
We can take some comfort, we guess, learning that South
Florida bridges do not use that steel truss and deck system. The
one example we have in the Keys the old Bahia Honda bridge
- has been closed for years.
But that doesn't relieve the county or state from a far more
public process on bridge inspections and repair timetables.
Living in a chain of islands, we count bridge safety along with
police and fire safety as the cornerstones of what government
needs to get done.
Minneapolis is a wake up call. Are we listening?

Wisteria issue not settled yet

Like a never-ending saga, the Wisteria Island issue continues
to confuse people in Key West.
The latest twist and turns include failure to obtain enough sig-
natures for a charter amendment being pushed by a group of
activists organized as the Wisteria Island Committee.
Add Mayor Morgan MacPherson's earlier opposition to a non-
binding referendum proposed by City Commissioner Bill Verge.
That was back in mid-July.
Two weeks later the Mayor has proposed a different referen-
dum be on the November ballot this one to measure voter sup-
port for the city to acquire the 21.5-acre island.
And that has many scratching their heads, including Verge
who notes there is no dollar figure attached and not much hope
of finding lots of money in a belt-tightening budget year.
Bruce Ritson of the Wisteria Island Committee said his group
missed the target of 1,526 signatures by about 400, but also
notes his group had "only a day and a half' to gather signatures.
He wants another go at it, this time for a binding referendum
that would give city voters the final say on any annexation of
land to the city.
With so many questions and so many competing voices all
clamoring for a say, it's hard for the average voter to sort through
the noise.
Hopefully, we'll learn more at Tuesday's Key West City
Commission meeting.
Given the topic and the tone of previous Wisteria Island
debates, we expect the house to be full. Show up early if you
want a seat.

Mini-season: 'As good as it gets'

To the protesters of the mini-season, I've
been living in the Keys since the mid-1970s,
and after much debating the problem over the
years and many public meetings, this is as good
as it gets.
I believe government officials have worked
out an equitable solution. To cut down.on
divers poaching traps, they get first shot at the
lobster for two days.
The days chosen are in the middle of the
week. That cuts down on weekend warriors
from Dade and Broward counties, gives the
locals a chance to harvest their own resources,
and forces lobster mobsters from distant coun-
ties to stay at least a week here and spend their
money in Monroe County.
Yes, 30,000 tourists after our lobsters do put
a lot of fishing pressure on the resource, but
those tourists do pump up our economy quite a
bit, and during the off-season when we really
need it.
Limiting the legal catch to six per person in
Monroe County and 12 per person in other
counties encourages the lobster mobsters to seek

their catch in other parts of Florida. What more
can be done? Nothing! This is the best solution
that has been worked out through the years,
believe me.
You certainly don't want to eliminate the
mini-season altogether, because that pits sport
divers and bully netters directly against the
commercial lobstermen during the regular sea-
son, which leads to violence, and there's no end
to it. Every year I hear people complain about
seeing gross lobster violations. But do they ever
pick up the phone and call FWC to register an
official complaint? Oh, no! There might be
repercussions! What if the neighbors found out
who turned them in?
All the laws on the books don't do a bit of
good if they're not enforced. Law enforcement
needs to be backed up by the public. If people
don't get involved, nothing gets better.
Nobody is asking you to risk your life, just
make the phone call. Do it for the lobsters. And
for the rest of us, who enjoy taking Florida lob-
sters legally for our dinner.

Report dogfights to authorities

I am writing you today not only as. the
Director for the Florida Keys SPCA but also as
the proud owner of a wonderful pit bull dog.
No doubt most of you have heard of the
recent indictment against Atlanta Falcons quar-
terback Michael Vick, alleging his involvement
in dog fighting. -
The information coming forth in this case
and the descriptions of the inhumane and inhu-
man treatment of these poor animals are
extremely disturbing. Whoever is responsible
for these acts should be labeled as nothing less
than a monster and be punished accordingly.
Pit bulls can be affectionate, loyal and obe-
dient animals. However, with the wrong owner,
almost any dog can be terrorized and tortured
to the point that it becomes a vicious animal
capable of inflicting great harm.
Regardless of whether or not Vick is found
to be the one guilty of these deeds, this case
brings to light a serious and growing problem
in this country. Dog fighting, more specifically
pit-bull fighting, is being glamorized by some
in pop culture and is on the rise.
The Florida Keys SPCA has received more
pit bulls in the last six months then during the
entire previous year. It is evident that pit bulls
are being bred in the Lower Keys. While some
people may breed pit bulls because of an affin-
ity for the breed, the large number of pit bulls
coming into the Key West animal shelter raises
the question whether or not these dogs are
being bred for fighting purposes.
Any activity associated with dog fighting,
including betting on and watching fights, is a
felony in Florida. Anyone who considers this
activity "sport" should know it is nothing less
than sheer torturefor the dogs involved.
JIf you have any information regarding dog
fighting, for the sake of these poor creatures, I

implore you to contact the Florida Keys SPCA
at 294-4857 or fkspca@bellsouth.net. Tips can
be made anonymously.
Please keep in mind just who suffers in situ-
ations like that of the Vick case. Regardless of
who is to blame, the dogs that were found and
the ones that died as a result of the cruel sport
of dog fighting were considered disposable by
the people who raised, trained and abused
Dogfighting is an illegal, inexcusable and
appalling act perpetrated by people who find
amusement in torturing innocent animals.
It is our responsibility as a community to
denounce these actions and ensure that they do
not take place here.

Wilma to blame for dead canals

The canals in Port Pine Heights
have been murky and they stink. I have
lived on the last dead end canal in Port
Pine for over 16 years. I have studied
my canal and the changes that it goes
through during the seasons.
Recently, reports of fish kills and
even bird kills in the Port Pine area
have not surprised me.
During the rainy season, my canal
changes from a salt water environment
to a fresh or brackish water environ-
ment. A good 3-inch rain and we
have had several this year can make
a saltwater canal go "fresh" and kill a
lot of the salt water plants and fish. The
canal will go "dead" or void of oxygen
and stink of sulfur and methane. Weeks
will go by until the canal gets back to
the salt water equilibrium that will sup-
port salt water plants.
"Normal" salty water in my canal
is measured in parts per thousand or
"ppt" of salt. The ocean runs about 35
ppt. A good hard rain in my area will
knock this down to 20 ppt and often
much lower after continual days of
rain. Brackish to fresh water is usually
10 ppt or less.
Oxygen levels are measured in parts
per million or "ppm." Oxygen in a
good trout stream runs 7 to 10 ppm.
My canal in December is full of bread-
ing snapper and runs about 8 to 10
ppm during the winter. Summer normal

is 4-6 ppm. After a good hard rain, the
oxygen drops to 2 ppm and only a few
critters can survive that. \
So, in the summer after lots of rain,
canals die and take weeks to come
back alive again. Fish are smart and
swim out and away from bad water -
so not too many end up dead.
This summer is different because of
Hurricane Wilma. Wilma put tons of
silt into our canals. Propane tanks, gar-
den sheds full of garden stuff, trees,
building supplies, and you name it -
are in our canals.
SSo I am not surprised when reports
of dead fish and dead birds who eat
the dead fish are foundAIn our
I believe that the heavy rains that
we have had combined with very
.abnormal high tides have washed
our septic systems and our parking lots
into our canals, causing the canals to
die hard and take other victims with
them. God only knows what is rusting
out in the mud from the Wilma wash-
tub that hit us.
I am waiting to see what the Mote
Lab testing that was reported to be
taking place comes up with. I
I don't think that seasonal changes
alone can cause the fish and bird deaths
that were reported. I think Wilma left a
few time bombs in the muck.

Why are some stirring the pot?

Why is it that some folks just
aren't happy unless they are stirring
the pot? When there is no need. It
must be part of the "grass is always
greener" syndrome.
When it comes to our city, I seri-
ously doubt if anyone punches the
clock more often than Mike Puto.
Maybe you think he is not the
high-paid dynamic leader to guide
our major metropolis through the
tough times ahead or, in some cases,
we are living with now. All of the
above is ridiculous.
To get a guy who is committed to
Marathon as Puto is, to get a guy

who knows where all the skeletons
are buried, and to get him for
$105,000 is a steal.
Rudy Guliani is currently tied up
on some special project, Daley won't
leave Chicago until another Daley
can step up and step in. Besides these
guys would put us over budget and
would be hard pressed to understand
local customs.
Puto is just hitting his stride -
give him some operating room. See
what he can do for the city. It is not
time to throw out the baby with the
bath water.

Secure vessels in canals, or else

The City of Marathon recently
amended its Emergency Management
Plan to provide for the closing of its
canals when a hurricane watch is
issued. This will allow residents to
moor their boats in the canals for
greater protection than if simply tied.
to a dock.
The language in the Emergency
Management Plan states that: .
A hurricane watch is issued wher8

there is a possibility that you could
experience hurricane conditions
within 36 hours, The City of
Marathon canals will be closed to
boat traffic when a hurricane watch
is issued. This will allow residents
time to secure their vessels in the
canal. Residents wishing to trailer
their boats should do so before the
issuance of a hurricane watch.

'Mother's' passing lamented

I was saddened to hear of the recent
passing of Betty Vail. She was a long time
resident of Marathon and was involved in
many local groups, clubs and activities,
but few people know that she was pro-
claimed the "Mother of the Marathon
Airport," at the dedication ceremony for
the then new passenger terminal building
in 1994.
Airport projects do not often attract a
group of ardent supporters, but.the new
airport terminal for Marathon was an
exception to that rule thanks to Betty. She
was the strongest citizen advocate for the
project. From 1990 to 1992, while we
were in the permitting process, she attend-
ed every public hearing and meeting and
there were dozens of those since a total of
24 regulatory agencies had to review and
or approve the project.
She always spoke in favor of the proj-

ect and always brought along a contingent
of like-minded supporters as well. When
some members of the community argued
against the terminal complex because of
the $7 million price tag, she pointed out
quite correctly that only 5 percent
($350,000) of that amount would be paid
by the County.
One of her favorite expressions was,
"It's not going to get any cheaper." And
based upon the fact that 15 years later, we
are spending 4 times that amount at Key
West for a new terminal complex, she was
certainly correct.
We all miss her, but we are all better
people for having known her. She loved
the Marathon airport and hopefully her
spirit will remain at that facility to help
guide all [who] work there.

Hybrid car saves, even in Keys

A recent article in another paper ("Not
all green ideas feasible, report says") cites
a report to the Islamorada village council
which concludes that "Hybrid vehicles are
not best suited to Islamorada because they
provide greater energy savings in more
urban, stop-start, traffic conditions."
That's not true, and I would hate for
Islamorada (or other municipalities) to pass
up savings and reduced emissions (carbon
and other) based on patently wrong infor-
ThdeToyota Prius (hybrid 4-door sedan)
is quite well suited to Keys driving. My
wife and I have one, our driving is not pre-
dominantly urban or stop-and-go, and we
average an honest 51 miles per gallon in
typical Keys driving. We live>on Cudjoe
and make frequent trips to Key West and
Marathon, occasional trips to Miami.
The Prius gets best fuel economy at

modest highway speeds in the 45-50
mph range and does quite well at
speeds appropriate in residential neighbor-
hoods. In city driving, the Prius some-
times runs on battery-only for short dis-
tances, if not driven with a lead foot, but
overall it does about as well at typical
Keys highway speeds as in city driving.
The only speed range in which the Prius
does not get great fuel economy is freeway
Driving at 70+ mph, which nobody in the
Keys should be doing.
I don't know what hybrids the cited
report looked at or who did the report, but
its conclusion is definitely not valid for the
Toyota Prius, the most popular, most fuel-
efficient, and least polluting car currently
in production. Keys driving is ideal for
optimum fuel economy with hybrid vehi-

Stanley Switlik camp was wonderful

I wanted to write a letter to the
Keynoter to acknowledge-the excellence of
the Stanley Switlick Elementary School
Summer Camp. Our son Anthony attended
the program for the first time this year and
had the most amazing camp experience.
Thanks to Mr. Haus, Pauline Haus and all
the teachers that worked very hard at the
camp, our son had a wonderful experience.
Each day, our son came home to tell us
how much fun he had that day and how he
could not wait to go back the next day.
Every one of the teachers provided a very
inviting, safe and fun experience for all the
children that attended.
We would highly recommend this camp

City trailer park?
There is a way to have some real low
cost housing in Marathon. FEMA trailers
are selling for under $1,000 and it seems
there are all of them we could want.
Lets develop a trailer park, at a place
that has sewers. The city could buy up 300
or 400 units, rent them for under $500 and
still retire their debt in a few short years.
Wouldn't be ironic to have the city
replace some of the trailer parks they've
let the developers have?

School board postpones Trumbo decision

Vote expected
at Key West's
Aug. 14 meeting

The Monroe County School
Board faces a difficult decision
regarding the future of a piece of
property on Trumbo Road in Key
West, where the district currently
maintains its administrative
Although the board has already
received two proposals to build
affordable housing on the site,
there is debate over whether to
accept one of the two bids, reopen
bidding to additional contractors
or sell the valuable Trumbo Road
property and look for a less expen-
sive workforce housing site out-
side of Key West.
Board Members were expected
to vote on whether or not to accept
one of the proposals at a July 31
meeting, however the absence of
Board Member John Dick
prompted them to postpone the
vote. Dick was absent due to a
death in the family.
If sold, the Trumbo Road prop-
erty, which was assessed about a
year ago at more than $20 million,
could be used to boost funding for
the district's capital projects.
Opinions about whether or not
to build workforce housing in Key


West have incited heated debate
among officials and community
members. At a recent school board
budget meeting, Pat Labrada, a
former school board member who
chaired an affordable housing task
force, outlined his concerns to
board members.
"You are not charged with pro-
viding affordable housing, but
with providing the best possible
education at the best possible deal
for the taxpayers," Labrada said at
the July 24 workshop. "I don't
believe it would make a difference
if your workforce lived 10 miles
from here, in perhaps nicer units
at a lesser cost to the school board.
My opinion is that any planner
will tell you this property is too
valuable to do with it what you
want to do."
School Board Chair Andy
Griffiths disagreed.
"I think that that kind of think-
ing is what has gotten Monroe
County upset," Griffiths said. "We
are destroying the community of
Key West. I want the people that
work in the city to live in the city.
Once you sell it, sure it's a big
price tag, but it's gone forever."
Griffiths said a Key West loca-
tion would allow staff to bike or
walk to work, and might help
lower the district's teacher
turnover rate, which is twice as
high as that of districts with state
grades slightly higher than

Monroe County.
The Trumbo Road issue is fur-
ther complicated by the divergent
proposals now on the table. One
plan calls for 90 percent rental
units and-10 percent for-sale,
while the competing proposal is
precisely the opposite, emphasiz-
ing ownership not rental needs.
Griffiths said the board is look-
ing for a contractor who would be
willing to work with the district as
they determine the appropriate
ratio of rentals and homes for sale.
In addition, the district has not
yet determined a location for it's

administrative offices, which
would have to be moved if hous-
ing were to be built at Trumbo
Board Member Debra Walker
said there should be a clear plan in
place for the Harris School, for the
new location of administrative
offices, and for "a school which
will go unnamed, which will
eventually be closed, "before the
board accepts a proposal.
Key West Mayor Morgan
MchPherson also spoke at the July
31 meeting, advising the board to
work with the city to find a solu-

tion. He suggested placing offices
for both city officials and school
district administration in one large
complex, and using joint
resources to build workforce
housing for both school board and
city employees.
"What I'm suggesting is that
this has started as aggregate proj-
ect and we need to do it as com-
munity," McPherson said.
At its Aug. 14 meeting in Key
West, the school board is expected
to vote on whether to accept one
of the existing proposals or go
back to the drawing board.

Island committee
and city at
odds over fate

The original question of
annexation turned to one of
acquisition for Key West voters,
regarding the heavily debated
future of local Wisteria Island.
Mayor Morgan McPherson is
sponsoring another non-binding
referendum this one would
allow residents to vote on
whether they want the city to
purchase Wisteria -Island. The
ordinance for the referendum
will appear on the agenda for
Tuesday's City Commission
meeting, and if passed, would
appear on the Nov. 6 runoff bal-
lot, rather than Oct. 2.
According to the City Clerk's
office, the City Charter mandates
that signatures from 10 percent
of the voters in the last city elec-
tion (2005) are required in order
to bring a referendum to the bal-
lot. That number of voters was
15,263, making the total amount
of necessary signatures 1,526.
Oceans Property Ltd. was
planning to develop the island
into a "less-dense Sunset Key"
-- Wisteria's neighboring island
that houses numerous million-
dollar homes. The company,
along with the Bernstein fami-
ly's FEB Corp., withdrew their
request for voluntary annexation
July 9.
McPherson originally voted
against a non-binding referen-
dum that was proposed by City

Commissioner Bill Verge at the
July 17 City Commission agen-
da. That referendum would've
polled citizens on the issue of
annexing the island.
The deadline to get referen-
dums on the October ballot
passed Thursday, a deadline res-
ident Bruce Ritson is very famil-
iar with, considering his recent
drive to gather enough petitions
to change the City Charter that
would make the non-binding ref-
erendum regarding annexation,
in fact, binding. Voters would
actually determine the future of
the island, rather than get polled
on their stance.
The initiative, led by Ritson
and his Wisteria Island
Committee, had its skeptics,
including City Attorney Shawn
Smith, who told the Keynoter a
binding referendum would be all
but impossible.
Ritson missed his mark by
about 400 signatures, he said,
but now his eye is on the
November ballot, adding that he
feels like-minded community
members will prevail. The
Committee recently got together

to clean up trash on the 21-acre
"We only had a day and a
half," Ritson said. "But we have
30 days to [get the referendum
on the November ballot] and
we're going to kick some ass."
Ritson called McPherson's
referendum a "ploy" to further
negotiate with parties interested
in developing the island.
"There won't be enough rev-
enue there," he said. "It's a pile
of sand that can't be sold if the
city can't annex it. This is a face-
saving gesture... [Some commis-
sioners] were shown in bed with
the developers, and the taxpay-

Gator case will not bite prosecutors, defense says


A case involving two young
men who killed a protected Big
Pine alligator has been reas-
signed to Judge Mark H. Jones,
who is holding a status hearing
Monday at 1:30 p.m.
Timothy Goll, 19, of
Marathon and Jordan Milo, 20, of
Big Pine Key pleaded guilty June
5 after rejecting a plea that would
have given them a year in the
county jail.
Using dead birds, Goll and
Milo lured the female gator from
its home in the Blue Hole, a
freshwater reserve in Big Pine
and allegedly shot out its eyeballs
with a pellet gun before beating it
to death with a small baseball bat.
Jason Smith, attorney for
Timothy Goll, said he will not
move forward on his pending
motion to disqualify the prosecu-
tion based on information given

to the press regarding the case.
Sentencing for the pair has
come with its fair share of public
interest and confusion.
Judge Wayne Miller recently
recused himself from the case
after discussing it on U.S.-1
Radio's "Morning Magazine"
and Chief Judge Sandra Taylor
has since reassigned the case to
Judge Jones, who will be brought
up to speed on the specifics of the
case and have a chance to speak
with both legal parties Monday.
Letters and e-mails have
poured in from angry residents
- many of Big Pine Key stat-
ing they feel the crime is horrific,
going as far as to say Goll and
Milo demonstrate the premature
signs of serial murderers.
Eden and Smith dismiss the
comments, calling them ridicu-
lous and unfounded, while cate-
gorizing their client's as "Florida

Keys boys who go fishing and
hunting," as Smith said in an
interview July 3, when Judge
Miller was expected to sentence
the two, but instead granted the
defense's motion for continu-
About two dozen Big Pine
residents, some wearing green in
support of alligators, showed for
the hearing.
Another pending motion filed
by Smith to disqualify the prose-
cution will not be followed
through, he said.
Milo showed up at the July 3
meeting in a U.S. Army uniform
- a move his attorney said was
necessary because his command-
ing officers were standing in the
back of the courtroom.
Milo is set to go to Iraq, but
the case might delay his travels.
"Unquestionably, he would
love to go with his unit to Iraq,"
Eden said.
Eden cited comparable cases

in the state that would prove mit-
igating to his client, one man who
"killed a small alligator in Tampa
and got 18 months probation and

withhold of adjudication."
A punishment similar to this
would be adequate, the attorneys

Work to change the way the.
C-111 canal system carries water
to Florida Bay got its ceremonial
groundbreaking Thursday.
Federal and state agency offi-
cials gathered Thursday at a
water-pumping station several
miles west of Homestead for the
start of a multi-year project that
promises to restore "significant
hydrologic flow to the
Everglades," according to the
U.S. Army Corps of Engineers.
The first phase of construction
work will remove a concrete weir
(a small structure resembling a
dam) on the west side of a water-
retention area called S-332B.
Other work in the eight-month
project will modify levees in the
area. Cost of the program was not
available at press time.
The project celebrated
Thursday is only a part of
planned changes to the complex
C-111 system.
The ultimate goal is to restore
more of a sheet flow to the south-
ern Everglades and Florida Bay.
Currently, the existing flood-

control system channels much of
freshwater runoff from hurri-
canes and rains into a network of
canals that drains residential and
agricultural lands in. south
Miami-Dade County.
The centerpiece of that sys-
tem, the C-111 canal, channels
stormwater to be discharged at
Manatee Bay and Barnes Sound,
north of Key Largo in northeast
Florida Bay.
The system prevents needed
fresh water from reaching large
areas of the Everglades, and
occasional wreaks ecological
havoc when vast amounts of
fresh are discharged into normal-
ly brackish Barnes Sound and
Manatee Bay. The sudden
changes have killed large num-
bers of fish and marine organ-
Plans for the C-111 Spreader
Canal a construction project
intended to lessen the effects of
the C-111 system on northeast
Florida Bay and move water else-
where were expected to be
finalized this month for work to
begin this fall.
However, the project is being
redesigned after questions and
concerns were raised about how
well the spreader canal would
Now, a final plan is not
expected before December 2008,
with work not beginning until
mid-2009, according to a tenta-
tive timeline in South Florida
Water Management District doc-
Modifications to the spreader-

canal system could add from $25
million to $36 million to the cost
of a project budgeted at $40 mil-
lion, documents say.
No sources of funding for the
added costs were identified.
Government and conservation
sources have described the
spreader canal as the element of
Everglades restoration that will
have the significant effect on
Florida Bay.
Many concerns about the orig-
inal plan centered on the quality
of water that reaches Florida Bay.
Others said the plan failed to
divert enough water from the sys-
tem to Taylor Slough, a pathway
that carried water to Everglades
National Park. Additional proj-
ects to "maximize deliveries of
fresh water in Taylor Slough to
Florida Bay," documents from a
March meeting say.
"There are major concerns
with point-source discharges of
fresh water through C-111 to
Manatee Bay and Barnes Sound,"
the report noted.
A proposed change would cre-
ate a 500-arce water reservoir in
the Frog Pond area and install
pumps to move water through
Loveland Slough to reach the
reservoir, which would feed
Taylor Slough.
Some of the lands needed for
the proposed reservoir are still in
private ownership.
Thomas Van Lent, a hydrolo-
gist with the Everglades
Foundation, said the changes are
"I believe the Army Corps of
Engineers really wants to get this
one right," he said recently.

Marathon Manor in limbo

Recent interest
expressed by
Cay Clubs

Marathon Planning
Director Fred Gross says Cay
Clubs Resorts and Marinas
may have stymied a plan he
had to recommend allocating
67 units of affordable housing
to the Monroe County School
Board for their M-arathon
Manor property.
Gross said he believes a
Cay Clubs inquiry to the state
Department of Community
Affairs (DCA) regarding the
number of allocations at the
property prompted DCA's
local office to perform a site
visit at the building.
DCA Director of Public
Affairs Jon Peck says no bind-
ing opinion was issued as to
the development rights for the
property, but Gross says the
visit resulted in DCA making a
statement equating a roughly
four to one ratio to convert the
transient units on site to
affordable housing.
At that rate, only 15 units
of affordable housing could be
constructed at the now defunct
nursing home adjacent to
Marathon Middle and High
Gross said the DCA would
not have been involved in the
process until much later, but
now that they are, will be firm
in their findings.

"I could do the recomnren-
dation, but I can't-give them a
letter vesting the number of
units," he said. "That's impos-
sible because I already got a
reading from the DCA. I
would have had very good
standing on the way I read
the".land development regula-
tions, he said.
Cay Clubs was thought to
be out of the picture with the
Manor after dropping out
April 27 from an original pur-
chase agreement to buy the
property from the school
board for $7.4 million.
But Cay Clubs Vice
President of Operations Frank
Rego said the DCA visited the
site of their own accord and
that the company is still very
much interested in pursuing
the property.
"We would like to do the
deal if it can be done under the
terms of the original discus-
sions," he said. "We were
going, to get 90 market-rate
units and we were going to put
65 back in to be deeded in per-
petuity for workforce rental."
Rego said Cay Clubs has
been unable to get confirma-
tion on the number of units
available at the property and
that the company would have
doubled its investment just to
bring it up to city and county
standards for rentable work-
force housing.
"We would not have exe-
cuted all the exercises in the
due diligence process if we
were not interested in making

the deal work," he said. "It has
to be viable and we have to at
least cover our costs."
Gross said he planned to
argue to the DCA that if future
renters at the site were subject
to evacuation 72 hours prior to
a hurricane, an allocation
would not be necessary. Much
like affordable housing at a
resort, residents would vacate
long before the standard 24-
hour evacuation period.
The idea, Gross said, is to
be able to use much-needed
affordable housing allocations
S"At one point it was an easy
letter for me, now it's a fight,"
he said. "Now I have to con-
vince a bunch of no-sayers
there is another way of look-
ing at things."

Deaf dolphin not
socializing yet,
but is adapting

Castaway, the deaf bottlenose
dolphin who recently lost her
infant calf, has been moved from
a birthing pen at the Marine
Mammal Conservancy to a
multi-dolphin public display
facility in Key Largo.
Castaway was moved to
Dolphin's Plus on July 25, and
according to Curator Art Cooper,
a health problem prompted staff
to place her in a secluded pool
for the first four days of her stay.
"We had her in the pool
because she was gassy and she
was floating high," Cooper said.
"I had the ability to shade the
pool. I didn't think it was good
mentally or socially, but it was a
good decision medically."
According to Cooper, the gas
problem could have resulted in
sunburn if Castaway was left in
an open pen, because it caused
her to float closer to the surface
of the water. Cooper said that he
was reluctant to put a topical
sunblock on Castaway because it
could interfere with her ability to
regulate her bpdyA~eat.. .

On July 30, Castaway was
moved to a saltwater pen with
two other female dolphins.
Cooper said the dolphins
have been eager to communicate
with Castaway, but that her abil-
ity to respond is limited.
"Its interesting seeing her
interacting with the dolphins,"
Cooper said. "They originally
come up to her and say 'hi, hi,
hi,' but she doesn't respond.
They haven't given up. They're
still swimming up to her and try-
ing to introduce themselves."
Cooper said that after an ini-
tial 20-minute swim with the
dolphins, Castaway has spent
most of her time in a small shad-
ed area of her pen, and that she
pays particularly close attention
to Dinghy, a pregnant dolphin
housed nearby. The staff inten-
tionally placed Dinghy and
Castaway in separate pens
because they don't know how
Castaway will react to Dinghy's
newborn after suffering the loss
of her own calf, Wilson.
Cooper said he and his staff
are trying their hardest to help
Castaway adjust, but he admits
he doesn't have all of the
"I've never introduced a deaf
dolphin to a group of dolphins
before. There are things that ou

can do to encourage positive
interaction between dolphins
that have the ability to fully
communicate, but we don't have
that ability here, so this is new
frontier for us."
Castaway, who is completely
deaf and sees out of only one
eye, was stranded near Fort
Pierce in November of 2006.

Corps of Engineers still

holding wastewater money

Funds were
supposed to be
given in spring

The Keys are still waiting
for nearly $100 million in fed-
eral funding for wastewater
projects that the state requires
be finished in less than three
Congress authorized the
funding in 2001, and later
appropriated the first $7.5 mil-
lion of it. The U.S. Army
Corps of Engineers was given
responsibility for distributing
the money.
But Keys wastewater offi-
cials have yet to see any of it.
Despite several assurances
by Army Corps officials in late
2006 that the funds would be
delivered by the spring of
2007, bureaucratic approval
processes have continued to
delay fund distribution.
Shelley Trulock, Army
Corps project manager for the
Florida Keys Water Quality
Improvement Project, said the
delay was caused by disagree-
ments in logistics between the
corps and Keys officials.
"We experienced some
delays in coordinating with the
municipalities and their legal
staff on the project coopera-
tion agreements," Trulock
said. "As of Friday, July 20,
project cooperation agree-
ments were submitted up to
our headquarters for review
for Key West, Key Largo and
Key Colony Beach. We are
currently finalizing the agree-
ment comments for Marathon
and Islamorada."
Key Largo Wastewater
Treatment District Commis-
sioner Charles Bullock con-
ceded that hesitation on the
part of Keys officials to adhere
to corps guidelines was par-
tially to blame for the delay.
"I think we had guidelines
but we didn't like them,"
Bullock said. "We had to come
around to the conclusion that
if we were going to receive the
corps' money, we were going
to have to do what they asked.

We in fact probably delayed
the project for a couple months
because we were looking for a
way to structure the project
cooperation agreements so we
would be in compliance."
Trulock said some of the
money will soon be available
to Keys wastewater officials,
but a specific date for fund
distribution has not yet been
"It is hard for me to put a
timeline together for review,
approval and execution of
their cooperation agreements,"
Trulock said. "I do know that
the [Keyswide project] has a
lot of attention up in
Washington and I am opti-
mistic that the process will
move along expeditiously."
Bullock said he anticipates
approval of the Key Largo
cooperation agreement in 30 to
60 days. The wastewater dis-
trict will then have to send an
invoice to the corps before it
can receive the funds.
Once approved, the project
cooperation agreements will
provide $200,00 for Key
Colony Beach, $2.5 million
for Key West, and $500,000
for Key Largo, totaling only
$3.2 million of the $100 mil-
lion originally promised by
Separately, Congresswom-
an Ileana Ros-Lehtinen's
office issued a press release
indicating that Layton can


872-4802 www.floridal'ftscom

apply for reimbursement on
their recently-completed sewer
Layton had been promised
$800,000 from the original $5
million pledged through the
Florida Keys Water Quality
Improvements District Project
Delivery team.
When asked about when
Keys officials can expect to
receive the full $100 million,
Key Largo Wastewater
Treatment District Manager
Charles Fishburn said, "I don't
think we ever will. We've got-
ten 1.7 percent of our money
and we'll be done with the
project in four or five years.
Of the $100 million, at most
$20 million will come down.'"
Officials were disheartened
last year after learning that
approximately $2.9 million
had been shifted from the
Keys project fund to another
project. Trulock said that corps
has since returned that money,
but that $2 million that the
corps spent on studies, plan-
ning and paperwork will not
be repaid.
"There is an administrative
cost associated with imple-
mentation of such a program.
These funds have been used to
complete all National
Environmental Policy Act
efforts for all six municipali-
ties, the program management
plan, programmatic environ-
mental impacts, and the day-
to-day administration,"
Trulock said.

Behind the fundraising and
campaigning leading up to the
October elections, questions are
arising over Monroe County vot-
ing machines.
Recent studies have caused
concern at the state level, but
with technological adjustments
made to the machines and sub-
mitted to Florida on Wednesday,
voting security will be tighter,
say defenders of Diebold
Election Systems.
Diebold is at the forefront of
the controversy after a study by
Florida State University revealed
the company's optical-scan vot-
ing machines leave a possibility
for dishonest voters or poll work-
ers to swap the machines' tally of
votes between competing candi-
dates, and even allow the "adver-
sary" to technically stuff ballots
via the system's memory card.
"I'm a little bit concerned that
the secretary of state [Kurt
Browning] only issued complaint
against Diebold," said Leon
County Supervisor of Elections
Ion Sancho. "Why hasn't Florida
done a top-to-bottom review of
voting rather than simply being

directed to look at the Diebold.
It's like we .keep taking baby-
steps when Califprnia is looking
at the whole picture."
The University of California
completed a similar study to
FSU's, focusing on Sequoia,
Diebold and Hart InterCivic sys-
Sancho has been active in
revamping voting systems across
Florida and in late 2005 author-
ized Harri Hursti, a Finnish com-
puter scientist, to critically exam-
ine the voting machines; he
found that the results could be
altered,. almost without any evi-
dence. Florida's two other sys-
tems, ES&S (Election Systems
& Software) and Sequoia Voting
Systems weren't included in the
FSU study and therefore haven't
been called to question.
"Anything in life can be
altered," -said Assistant
Supervisor of Elections Joyce
Griffin. "Did you need [FSU] to
tell you that?
The findings prompted
Secretary ^ of State Kurt
Browning, who was appointed
by Gov. Charlie Crist, to instruct
Diebold to work out the kinks by
Aug. 17, or the machines will be
pulled from all Florida precincts.
Then-Gov. Jeb Bush's
Secretary of State David Mann
said the experiments weren't
realistic to that of a typical elec-

tion day.
Monroe County Supervisor of
Elections Harry Sawyer agrees,
saying any voter fraud at a
County precinct site -would be
impossible with the amount of
security present, unless it was
done by a poll worker a
notion Sawyer is quick to dis-
"I've never had a poll worker
that I never trusted," he said.
"For the Governor and our
Secretary of State to question
that... they're not doing a service
to the voters of this state."
Poll workers "take their jobs
seriously and they get paid
squat," Griffin said. "They have
no political agenda but to help
voters. [Skeptics] don't know
about Monroe County security."
According to a company
spokesman, adjustments to
Diebold voting machines enacted
Wednesday should allow them to

Residents say some will gain
from the assignments while oth-

shareholders are responsible for
paying for the new homes, which
many claim they cannot afford.
Some estimated the costs of
those homes at $250,000-plus.
Pedro Salva, president of the
resort's board of directors, could
not be reached for comment.
Nick Mulick, a Tavernier
attorney representing some of the
shareholders, said his clients are
not satisfied with the way; resort

management has handled the
redevelopment planning process.
"To the best of my client's
knowledge, there was no lottery
or other fair and objective means
of assigning ownership of units
after the redevelopment," Mulick
said. "One of the things that
would go a long way toward
equalizing the burden is to recog-
nize the fact that an owner whose
unit has been either relocated to a
less-attractive location, has been
diminished in size or reconfig-
ured, should be compensated in
some way for the adverse effect."
Mulick said shareholders were
not given a chance to vote on the
final site plan, and are disappoint-
ed with what he says are the lim-
ited options offered to them for
"Another issue is the reason-
ableness of burdening individual
unit owners with the very sub-
stantial expense of a limited
selection of building types decid-
ed or selected by the management
as opposed to the members them-
selves," he said.
The site plan approval comes
as the solution to more than 10
years of disputes between the
resort and-the county over code
Problems arose in the early
1990s. Resort shareholders had
been adding permanent fixtures
such as front porches and Florida
rooms to their RVs. Although
some shareholders had sought
and received building permits for
the fixtures, many others did not,
and those units remain out of
compliance with county codes.
When Monroe County began
actively pursuing code compli-
ance for dozens of violations in
1994, the resort responded by
seeking legal status as an Urban
Residential Mobile Home
District. A series of court hearings
-and court-appointed mediation
ensued, and, the resort's zoning
status was changed from RV to
Urban Residential Mobile Home
in 2004.
In June 2006, the County
Commission authorized a devel-
opment agreement, which would
bring the resort into compliance,
and required a site redevelopment
plan as part of a major condition-
al-use permit.
Planning Commission Chair-
man Jim Cameron said that the
county did its best to be accom-
Smodating to resort shareholders.

"They came up with a devel-
opment agreement about a year
ago," Cameron said. "The county
gave in to a lot of things that
wouldn't normally be allowed

Smorgasboats deliver

Service a big ." 'V
help for liveaboards
moored in harbor .
By DICK CONKLIN ,".w., "
Keys Sunday Contributor "U '"'..-

Two of the busiest boats in
Boot Key Harbor are as "green"
as they come, using no noisy
gasoline motors to transport
their passengers around the har-
bor. That's because the two
Smorgasboats are powered by
electric motors that can run all
day on a charge, using about a
dollar's worth of electricity.
Combined, they are busy for
around 100 hours each week.
A trip on a Smorgasboat is
about as quiet as a sailboat
cruise, with only the sound of
splashing water and sea birds,
just right for a normal conversa-
tion. There are actually two 18-
foot, bimini-topped boats one
named One and the other named
(appropriately) The Other, cap-
tained by Chris Boyle or one of
his licensed captains. The busi-
ness provides a variety of serv-
ices to harbor cruisers and live-
aboards, including a taxi and
delivery service, sunset cruises,
harbor and eco tours.
And weddings Chris and
his wife Barbara were married
aboard a Smorgasboat last April,
chronicled by photographs on
their Web site. A chain of trap
buoys trailed behind their boat,

cruising season, stops are made
at two-hour intervals between 7
a.m. and 6:45 p.m. During the
summer the boats run on an on-
demand basis.
The cost of a typical taxi ride
is only $2, or $5 if you go from

Keeping kids insured a priority

Panel suggests
ways to retain
KidCare users
Associated Press

Some parents should be able
to pay for state-subsidized
health insurance for their chil-
dren through automatic pay-
check deduction, a panel said
Monday as part of a series of
recommendations on how to
boost enrollment in KidCare.
The advisory panel,
appointed by Florida Chief
Financial Officer Alex Sink,

will make several proposals to
the board of the Healthy Kids
Corp., which oversees the
KidCare program, in an effort
not only to increase enroll-
ment, but to decrease the num-
ber of families who drop out of
the program unwillingly.
Many parents and advocates
say. the jumble of programs
collectively known as KidCare
- but also called by several
other names that provide
subsidized health insurance for
children is confusing and diffi-
cult to navigate.
Moreover, several advo-

cates say that the transition
from one children's health pro-
gram to another often
required if the family's income
changes or as the child gets
older, for example isn't easy
and often families simply lose

Report: Change needed

INSURED / From 19

Putting it altogether under
one roof would help, many
officials and advocates agree,
but that would take legislation.
In the meantime, there are
things that can be done without
a change in law, and the ad hoc
committee that made its rec-
ommendations Monday is
looking at those things.
Most of the proposed
changes.are relatively techni-
cal in nature. For example, the
committee suggests changing
when parents enrolling chil-
dren should begin to pay pre-
miums. Currently, they must
pay a month ahead of enrolling
their child. The panel suggests
enrolling the child, and then
billing the family for the first
monthly payment.
Another change could dras-
tically improve retention.
Now, when families renew
they must provide data about
their income which some
say reduces the number of peo-
ple who go through the renew-
al process, or at least slows it
down, while parents hunt down
tax documents, for example.
The panel suggests that
might not be necessary for
some families, because state

agencies already have access
to information about their
income if they've already
applied for Medicaid.
In those cases, KidCare
officials could simply send the
family a notice asking them to
verify whether the income is
right, and if no response is
received they could assume it
is, meaning the child could be
enrolled more quickly.
The panel also is suggesting
that large employers should be
asked to allow automatic pay-
roll deductions for KidCare,
which makes it far less likely
that a child will lose coverage
for nonpayment of premiums.
Currently, that option is avail-
able to employees of the
Broward County school sys-
tem, but the panel suggested
that all companies with at least
100 employees who already
have children in KidCare could
be asked to participate.
State officials say that there
are at least 40 employers
around the state who meet that
description, and that the
largest three of those employ-
ers Wal-Mart, Publix and
the Miami-Dade County
school system employ near-
ly half the workers who would
fall into the group.

"We pick up platters of stone
crabs and shrimp from Keys
Fisheries," he said. "We're the
'concierge of the harbor.' Our
boats are perfect for surprise
parties. We're electric, so
nobody hears us coming."
Harbor and eco tours are also.
popular. In the harbor and along
adjacent waterways, Marathon
city regulations prohibit Boyle
from pointing out the homes of
celebrities. But on ecotours he
has no restrictions from identi-
fying the dolphins, manatees,
birds and native plants that
inhabit Sisters Creek, Whiskey
Creek and adjacent waters.
"We are just right for 'Wild
Florida' tours," he says. "Since
we're quiet, we can sneak up on
wildlife and observe them."
SSunset tours usually depart
45 minutes before sunset, posi-
tioning the boat either at the
west end of the harbor, under
the Seven Mile Bridge, or on the
Bayside for the best view. The
cost is $20 per person, whether
just a couple or a full load of six.
"My favorite spot to watch
the sunset is when it sets
.between the pilings of the two
bridges," says Boyle. "We like
to show people the 'green
flash,' and recently observed it
for two or three nights in a row."
Boyle is happy with the suc-
cess of his venture and would
like to increase his services and
the number of boats in his fleet.
He has petitioned Cay Clubs to
add a water taxi landing at the
east end of the harbor, at the old
winter docks, near Publix.
The two Smorgasboats are
ElectraCraft 18-LSR vessels,
each powered by a 48-volt GE

inboard motor and six heavy-
duty 8-volt marine batteries.
The craft run from 4 to 7 knots,

"My first question was, 'Will

State: Check cabinets

Official says
recalled, items
still on shelves
Keynoter Staff

Florida Agriculture and
Consumer Services Commission-
er Charles Bronson has urged
retail outlets selling Castleberry
Food Company products to
recheck their shelves and to be
diligent with the recent recall of
their products.
The Food and Drug
Administration and U.S.
Department of Agriculture have
indicated the nationwide recall
has been less than effective as
reports show recalled products are
still on the store shelves.
"I'm concerned that we are still
finding Castleberry's products on
store shelves nearly two weeks
after, the recall was first
announced," Bronson said in a
press release Thursday. "We need
to check with our friends and
neighbors reminding them to
check their pantries, look on store
shelves and do whatever is neces-
sary to get the word out."
However, it appears Keys
supermarkets have been vigilant
about removing recalled items
from store shelves even as the
recall notice from July 18 was
later expanded to include up to 80

Publix spokeswoman Anne
Hendricks said all Castleberry
products included in the recall
have been removed from all Keys'
shelves and returned to their sup-
Hendricks said that in any of
their 240 stores, Publix sold seven
items included on the list. She said
any of the three Publix stores in
the Keys Key Largo, Marathon
and Key.West may have been
selling none or any combination
of the products, including barbe-
cued beef and pork, chili, hot-dog
chili, beef stew and cored-beef
Marathon Winn-Dixie Manager
Angela Acosta said Castleberry
products were removed from the
store a week or two ago.
"We only had two of the prod-
ucts and they were taken off the
shelves," Acosta said, referring to
Castleberry brand chili sauce and
beef stew. A Winn-Dixie brand
chili sauce was also removed.
Calls to Albertson's were not
returned by press time.
Consumers and storeowners
are urged to visit
www.doacs.state.fl.us and
look under "hot topics" for the
link to the list of recalled prod-
ucts. Questions regarding the
recall can be directed to the

'Webkinz' newest kid craze

Electronic stuffed
animals driving
parents to stores
McClatchy Tribune

Every morning, 8-year-old
Chloe Thomas checks to see
whether any of the 34 pets that
line the top of her bunk bed need
to be walked, coddled or fed.
And when she does, the ani-
mals including a tree frog and
a unicorn come to life in their
own specially designed rooms, eat
a gourmet breakfast like French
toast or fruit salad and decide
whether to spend the day hitting
the clubhouse or just staying at
home instead.
The plush playthings, you see,
are not your average teddy bear.
They are Webkinz, wildly pop-
ular, technology-driven stuffed
animals that don't require batter-
ies or even a computer chip to
function just a tag with a code.
Welcome to the latest version
of "Why didn't I think of that?"
The toys, which cost between
$10 and $15, were introduced by
the privately held Ganz Corp. just
over two years ago and recently
received the 2007 Toy of the Year
Award from the Toy Industry
By supplying owners with a
secret code they can use to regis-
ter their animal online, Ganz has
managed to score the perfect com-
bination of a toy children can play
with both on and off the Web.
The stuffed animals have
become so popular that stores
across the nation can't keep them

in stock for more than a week, and
entrepreneurs on eBay are able to
sell the hard-to-acquire and
"retired" Webkinz for up to three
to four times the original value.
Roughly 50 different versions of
the animal are listed in the
Webkinz catalog right now.
"We'll get our shipment, put
them out immediately and within
a week, they're gone," said
Shawnna Browder, manager of a
Hallmark store. "We've had to put
them under lock and key now. It's
crazy. We have them in a glass
case so people can see what we
have, but because they're so pop-
ular, we don't want any walking
out the door."
Mark Postlethwaite, who owns
a card & gifts store, said the first
20 calls of the day at the store are
almost always about Webkinz.
Parents and grandparents from all
over the country have called in
search of a specific animal in the
collection. Carriers are listed on
the Webkinz Web site.
"It's just a huge deal," he said.
"But it makes sense. It's not like a
Beanie Baby, because it has func-
tion. It's educational and teaches
kids how to manage money."
The idea might sound laugh-
able, until you take a tour of the
virtual pet planet.
At Webkinz World, proud pre-
pubescent parents like Chloe offi-
cially adopt a virtual version of
their pet by inputting their unique
code. Educational games and triv-
ia quizzes allow them to earn

LOBSTER / From 30

12 lobster per person per day
is allowed outside the Keys,
but is set at six per day in
Monroe County.
Other mini-season rules ban
diving at night in Keys waters,
and local ordinances that
require divers to stay 300 feet
from shorelines.
Once the regular season
begins, divers can once again
seek lobster at night. Most
areas lift the ban on near-shore
The bag limit, however,
remains at six lobster per

licensed diver per day. That
limit now applies statewide
during the regular season.
State law previously
allowed a higher "boat limit"
regardless of how many divers
were aboard. That law has
been dropped. Regular-season
bag limits now are based sole-
ly on the number of licensed
divers aboard.
All recreational lobster
divers must hold a valid fish-
ing license with a special lob-
ster endorsement. Divers must
carry a measuring gauge while
in the water. Spearing lobster
is prohibited, and egg-bearing
lobster must be released.

Judges have tough job ahead

Kids' photos
have come from
across Keys, U.S.
Earlier this week was the
deadline for the
L'Attitudes photo con-
test and I'm pleased with the
number of photos that have
come in, as well as the con-

and domestic), plants and
flowers are a popular photo
subject for kids to focus on, as
well as siblings, some self-
portraiture and a few land-
Those submitting photos
live throughout the Keys and
as far away as Maryland,
Connecticut and other states.
While many are beautiful,
some are downright creepy
(think snakes) and others have
made me and my coworkers
laugh out loud. I think that in
addition to the top three win-
ners who will be awarded cash
prizes and the honorable men-
tions that get published, the
judges will be able to give a

few of the
kudos for
C eand the
ing the
Jessica efforts of
Machetta the con-.
doesn't stop on these pages. At
least one Chamber of
Commerce in the Keys is
interested in using them in
some capacity, and after the
winners are announced, a
photo gallery with all of the
submittals will be placed on
our Web site's photo gallery at
Any youngsters out there
with an eye for photography
should keep sending them in
though the contest is over.
We're always looking for
what's called "wild art" in the
newspaper business, and I also
urge you (with the help of


15ttu of


your parents or grandparents)
to search online for photo con-
tests. There are quite a few out
there looking for shots ranging
from nature to recycling to
school and more.

Different portrait
Some kids show a propensi-
ty for painting instead of or in
addition to photography, and
Key West artist Letty Nowak
is gearing up for her annual
portraiture class.
Her twice-weekly class runs
right up to the start of the
school year, meaning kids who
are having a tough time keep-
ing themselves occupied have
a creative outlet to challenge
and entertain them until they
head back to the classroom.
Nowak is renowned for her
portraits Faces of Key West
- and invites artists of all
skill level and all ages to par-
ticipate in her beginning oil
painting class at the Lemonade
Stand, 227 Petronia St. in Key
Students will work on mix-
ing colors, application, content
and portraiture.
Class begins Tuesday and
runs through Aug. 23 on

Cigarette machines now vend art

Repurposing an
outdated staple
creative idea
There was a who's who of
Key West movers and
shakers at St. Mary's
Star of the Sea last week send-
ing good wishes at the wedding
of Phyllis May's gorgeous
daughter Liane and handsome
groom Larry Caruso.
After a joyful service by
Father John Baker, a conch
train took the wedding guests to
the Fascination cruise ship for a
reception in the "Diamonds are
Forever Disco," where Caruso
and his mother, Dorothy, let
loose on the dance floor with
some pretty snazzy steps when it
came time for the groom to
dance with his mother.
The bride, an essential part of
the Fantasy Fest coordination
team at Linda O'Brien's
Market Share company, was
shyly glamorous in a shirred and
swagged gown.that elicited
Carole Lombard memories
from 1930s Hollywood.

Fantasy begins
The first event of Fantasy
Fest began last week with the
design workshop for the parade.
Two dozen parade hopefuls
gathered at The Studios of Key
West to see slides and hear pre-
vious parade award winners tell
their secrets of success.
Dave Richard, one of the
designers of last year's grand
prize winner "Plight of the
Plutonians," gave an insight

into the
layers of
ment in
S ing a float,
S > A coordinat-
S, ing 150
pants, con-.
W costume
design and
Judi Bradford color,
ing music, as well as building a
mobile bathroom with a door
wide enough to accommodate a
bulky costume.
Perennial Fantasy Fest con-
test winners Bob and Sue
D'Antonio shared their sources
for glitzy fabric and welded
frameworks and talked about the
many characters they have
invented over the years.
Cayman Smith-Martin
went through his very creative
conglomeration of individual
costumes related to a strong cen-
tral theme. Unusual uses of
common materials, most of
which are recycled, dominated
his imaginative construction
Jay Marzella has been a
winning parade entrant several
times and had a lot of practical
tips, along with "have fun," as a
basic motto.
"If you don't make it fun,
you find yourself yelling at your
best friend," he said.
The group left with inspired
ideas on this year's theme,
"Gnomes, Toads and White
Rabbit Tea Parties."

Sake 102: hip,

new cocktails

B arely 2,000 1
years after
brewers started using
rice for something
other than sushi, sake
has become hip to a
new generation of
younger bar and -m
restaurant patrons.
The light, refreshing
flavors and aromas
of sake pair well
with food and mix Bob
well with "tradition-
al" cocktail ingredients.
Pairing sake with food is rel-
atively easy because the differ-
ences between sakes are more.
subtle than the differences
between, say, red and white
wine. Obvious pairings like
sake and sushi and tempura are
fast becoming yesterday's
news. Even Thomas Keller,
celebrity chef/owner of the
renowned French Laundry in
Napa, Calif., includes sake on
his restaurant's world-class
1,800-label wine list to accom-
pany his exalted cuisine.
Shrimp (especially Key West
pinks) go better with sake than
many white wines. The fruity
tartness of sake brings out the
sweetness in boiled or broiled
shrimp and sake rarely has a
bitter finish like some white
wines. For spicier shrimp dish-
es, try a nigori unfilteredd)
sake. The thicker, sweeter,
maltier taste of nigori sake also
rounds out the flavor of shrimp
Broiled scallops accompa-
nied by a light, fresh junmai
sake are simply delicious.
Blackened dolphin and spicy


soft shell crabs are
best matched to the
daiginjo, ginjo and
honjozo sakes.
Instead of beer or
red table wine, try a
yamahai-shikomi or
kimoto sake with
picadillo or grilled
Sake cocktails are
a great way to start
erata the evening and
accompany dinner,
either at home or at a restau-
Hundreds of saketini con-
coctions have been created by
My favorite is the casatini
served to guests at Casa
Morada, an upscale boutique
resort in Islamorada. The recipe
is a secret but it goes some-
thing like this: Squeeze the
juice from two limes and two
lemons into a blender, add a
dash of sugar, add about six to
eight ounces of junmai sake,
fill with ice, blend well but not
completely smooth, and pour
into a glass tumbler or hurri-
cane glass.
A popular saketini is
made with sake, a dash of
sugar, lychee puree and lychee
A more traditional saketi-
ni includes three parts gin to
one part sake (replacing the
vermouth), mixed over ice,
strained and topped by an olive.
But mixologists are stretching
the envelope.
The Sweet Leilani
includes four ounces of sake, a
half ounce of peach juice,
crushed mint and half ounce of


for Ages 5-13

Try a sake cosmo


cranberry juice. Shift the juices
and sweeten with sugar to your
own taste.
A chic treat is peach sake
sangria: five parts sake, one
part each Cointreau, a good
quality Moscato d'Asti, passion
fruit and peach pure. Again,
experiment to fit your taste.
The sake margarita is
made with half an ounce of
plum wine, a half ounce of
tequila, half ounce of sake, half
ounce of lime juice, half ounce
of simple syrup, then garnish
with a cucumber slice. Use a
cocktail shaker instead of a
blender. Strain into a glass. For
a frozen version, combine the
ingredients in a blender with
3/4 cup ice and blend until
The sake cosmo simply
replaces vodka with sake in the
hundreds of cosmo recipes.
Generally, sake can replace
vodka, gin or clear rum in just
about any cocktail. The flavor
profile of the resulting drinks
tends to highlight the flavors
and aromas of the ingredients
more than when the drink is

made with a clear spirit. The
lower alcohol level is also easi-
er on the body and mind (sakes
tend to have 15 to 18 percent
alcohol by volume 7.5 to 9
Sake, as you might note
from the cocktail recipes, is
best served cool or just cooler
than room temperature. Warm
sake is generally warmed to
hide impurities and off-flavors.
There's also a mythology about
serving sake only in glazed
ceramic bowls or goblets. If we
leap ahead a few thousand
years from ancient Japan, we
have a non-reactive container
called "glass" which works just
fine, though sake purists will
rebel against both glass and
sake cocktails.
Finally, don't be shocked if
the sake you see on store
shelves (or served in restau-
rants) is made in the U.S. The
three largest-selling brands in
the country are Sho Chuko Bai,
Gekkeikan and Ozeki. All are
made in California and all are
made by Japanese brewmasters,
usually from U.S.-grown rice.

In brief

Wyland an official.
Olympic artist

Wyland Galleries announces
that Wyland has been chosen
as an official Olympic artist for
the U.S. Olympic team com-
peting in the 2008 Beijing
This is the first time the
U.S. Olympic Committee has
endorsed the art of an artist so
strongly committed to nature
and conservation.
Wyland was given this
honor because he and his
organization, like the
Olympics, encourage people to
strive to be their best. In par-
ticular, Wyland encourages
children to express themselves
through education, art and con-
The primary goals of

Wyland's art include fostering
a sense of global community
- much like the international
Olympic movement does. As
the Olympic movement has
modernized, it has recognized
the importance of a healthy
environment. Wyland's envi-
ronmental initiatives empower
young people to address global
environmental issues through
art and science, and encourage
voluntary global conservation
Not only is Wyland plan-
ning to complete his 100th
monumental Whaling Wall
mural in China in conjunction
with the 2008 Beijing
Olympics, he has also created
new works inspired by the
Olympic motto, "Faster,
Higher, Stronger."
