A white-bearded Florida man has won the "Papa" Hemingway Look-Alike Contest on his 15th attempt.
Retired air traffic controller Charlie Boice of Palm Beach Gardens prevailed Saturday night at Sloppy Joe's Bar, a hangout of Ernest Hemingway during his Key West residency in the 1930s.
A panel of former contest winners chose Boice, 56, who said he shares Hemingway's passion for marlin fishing.

The contest attracted 122 entrants. It's a highlight of the annual Hemingway Days festival honoring the author's literary legacy.
During his Key West years, Hemingway wrote the novel "To Have and Have Not."
