The 'Vandenberg' starts its journey from Virginia on April 22. It's scheduled to be towed into the
Truman Waterfront this morning.

Key West's ship finally arrives-


VANDENBERG/ From 1

mothball fleet on the James River
and after being cleaned of con-
taminants at a Norfolk, Va., ship-
yard, there are still lots of nuts and
bolts left in the operation.
"I'm exhausted," said Key
West City Commissioner. Bill
Verge, the city's point man.on the
project. "It doesn't end here, it
just begins here. Everybody acts
like it's done."
Final preparations include cut-
ting 47 holes into the hull, final
-asbestos inspections, a once-over
from federal regulators, and rig-
ging for the explosives that will
eventually send her to the bottom.
The ship passed Marathon
Monday and was scheduled to
arrive off Key West late Tuesday.


Today around 9 a.m., .the ship is
set to be maneuvered by various
tug and pilot boats into Truman
Harbor and docked near the USS
Mohawk on the East Quay Wall.
Other boats must be at least 500
yards away as it makes' its
entrance.
U.S. Coast Guard Sector Key
West Cmdr. Scott Buschman said,
"We're asking everyone to stay
away from the Vandenberg. We
want to make sure it's-safe."
The ship will not be open to
public tours due to safety con-
cerns, but a good view of the
Vandenberg will be available
from the East Quay Wall and from
aboard the Mohawk.
Plans are for the ship to be. on
the ocean's bottom by June 1, the
start of the six-month hurricane
season.


After preparations are com-
plete, the Vandenberg will be
towed out to the scuttling location
and anchored in spot. The'Coast
Guard, with help from the Florida
Fish and Wildlife Conservation
Commission, will setup a perime-
ter of 500 yards around the ship.
Verge said he heard reports
that when the Vandenberg was in
transit down the Keys, many
boaters were motoring right up
next to it and ignoring the steel
lines attaching the tugboats to the
powerless Vandenberg.
The Conch Republic Military
is hosting a welcoming reception
for the Vandenberg at 8 a.m. today
on the Mohawk. It's $10 per per-
son, which includes a tour of the
old Coast Guard ship, coffee and
pastries.

Sewer fee set: $68 monthly


The base cost
for residences
to be $35.97
By RYAN McCARTHY
rmccarthy@keynoter.com


The Marathon City Council
on Tuesday approved final
monthly sewer rates for resi-
dential and commercial proper-
ties.
The average homeowner
would pay $68.13 in monthly
fees. That's based on a base
facility charge and an average
monthly usage of 4,000 gallons
of water.
City consulting firm Public.
Resources Management Group
laid out the rate structure that
the council approved unani-
mously at a special meeting at
the Marathon fire station. The
next step is for city staff to
draft resolutions adopting the
rates.
The base facility charge for
every property in the city will
be $35.97 monthly, meaning
even if a property uses no
water, its owner will pay that
amount. The remaining charges
are based on volume of water
flow, with an average of $17.03
per month per 1,000 gallons of
'water.
According to-the consultant,
57 percent of the residential
households in the city use
4,000 gallons of water or less

each month. Seventy-five per-
cent use 6,000 gallons or less.
For commercial properties, a
single equivalent dwelling unit
will also be charged an average
of $68.13 per month. Prices
will fluctuate based on the
amount of water flow.
Following is a list of what
different-sized non-residential
properties' monthly cost will
be:
A small resort with 23
EDUs averaging 74,000 gal-
lons of water usage will pay
$1,100.
A niarina. with 42 EDUs
averaging 150,000 gallons of
water usage will pay $2,134.95.
A commercial
office'/small retail space aver-
aging 5,000 gallons of water
usage will pay $76.17.
A restaurant averaging
50,000 gallons of water usage
will pay $742.89.
The council also approved
the consultant's proposed
stormwater assessment of
$120. It will appear as a non-
property tax -assessment on tax


bills.
According to a schedule on
the city's Web site, construc-
tion on five of the seven sewer
service areas in Marathon will'
be complete this year. An ordi-
nance passed last .year states
the city will notify properties
within one year of the antici-
pated date service will be avail-

mails to School Board members

over a recent article in The

they questioned large amounts of

including Career Education

St. James "was invited to
appear [in front of the board]
after her contract was terminated
and after she was called unethi-
cal," Yagel said. "I'm here to tell
you this allegation is absolutely
false."
Yagel provided documents
that showed the retreat was spon-
sored and paid for by CDW, a
technology and office supply
company that does business with
the district.
Board member Debra Walker,
who has been critical of what she
called "wild rumors" reported by
the press and other board mem-
bers, said the board should apol-
ogize to St. James.
Board member Duncan
Mathewson questioned why St.
James wouldn't answer the
board herself and also wanted
to know what occurred during
the time St. James was Monique
Acevedo's direct supervisor.
"I should've thought that if
her first. concern was for the
School District and the students
of this county, she would- want to
come and talk to us on how to
find the right solutions," said
Mathewson.
Pribramsky said he under-
stood why employees would
seek legal counsel although
he added that innocent employ-
ees shouldn't have problems
speaking directly to the board or
the press.
Dick said although he
believed Yagel, he also received
conflicting explanations from the
district finance department that
shows "one. hand doesn't know
what the other is doing" within
the district administration.
Randy Acevedo quickly
responded that those were more
accusatory comments, and Dick
should wait for clear responses
and explanations before com-
.menting.
Board Chairman Andy
Griffiths said he would be more
careful with the way he phrases
questions and comments,
although the board still has to act
swiftly to restore credibility in
the district.
"We were hired by the public
to answer questions," Griffiths
said. "But perhaps we can think
if we can frame the question in
such a way to not allege wrong-
doing."

Keynoter Staff


A woman accused of being
an accessory to murder in a
Stock Island homicide was
returned to the Keys Monday
to stand trial.'
Kristena Whitmore, 40, was
booked into the Monroe
County Detention Center on
charges of being an accessory

the Feb. 10 killing of Richard
Gardner, 57, aboard his boat,
which was docked at the
Oceanside Marina.
Whitmore and her
boyfriend, Jonathon LeBaron,
32, were arrested in Salt Lake
City, Utah, on Feb. 21 after
police there received a tip the
two were staying at a Motel 6

revealed.
The warrant says Whitmdre
and Gardner, a Cape Coral and
New Hampshire resident, had
met online through craigslist,
where she had posted an ad,-
and he had paid her for oral

After Gardner was killed,
authorities say, LeBaron and
'Whitmore stole Gardner's

left the Keys.
At the Motel 6 where they
were arrested, police reported-

Good news for reefs,

bad news for ocean

Environmentalists who believe in the need to better protect our
reefs have mixed emotions today, an odd juxtaposition of joy
and despair. .
First, the joy part.
After years of struggle and at least two -previous failed
attempts, the USS Vandenberg will arrive in Key West Harbor
this morning. The 520-foot ship, when it lands on the ocean bot-
torn six miles off Key West in May or June, will be the second-
largest vessel ever sunk as' an artificial reef in North America.
The official welcoming party, will include representatives of
the Conch Republic, city officials and those hoping to spark a
revival in eco-tourism.
Efforts to scuttle the Vandenberg; a former military transport
ship, begun nearly a decade ago by the nonprofit Artificial Reefs
of the Keys and ReefMakers. Private donors never could raise
enough funds, so-city, county and state officials got involved.
For those who never gave up hope, their perseverance will be
rewarded today seeing the Vandenberg at long last.
The artificial reef site, combined with the Florida Keys Eco-
Discovery Center at the Truman Waterfront, Reef Relief and the
Florida Keys National Marine Sanctuary, expand Key West's
green tourism assets as well as educate locals on the importance
of the reefs in sustaining our marine environment.
Which brings us to the despair part felt after a powerful leader
in the Florida House introduced a proposal Tuesday that would
open up oil drilling leases in state waters.
State Rep. Dean Cannon, who is speaker designate, moved his
plan-through the House Policy Council even though thdre is no
companion yet in the Florida Senate. Cannon touts up to $1..6
billion a year in revenues and more than 19,000 jobs if the state
approves oil exploration leases.
Eric Draper of the Florida Audubon Society called the idea
"horrible" and warned it could jeopardize "Florida's beaches
[which] are our legacy ... to put them at risk for few million dol-
lars makes no sense."
Associated Industries of Florida, a business lobby, said the
state's coastline "harbor[s] anywhere from 3 billion to 20 billion
barrels of oil."
Ironically, a federal ban on oil drilling in Florida Gulf waters
-was first enacted by President George H. W. Bush more than 20
Years ago. .
Sorry to see a move now afoot in Tallahassee to undo that
green legacy, allowing oil drilling in state coastal waters within
10 miles of shore. -
Thus, today's mix of joy and despair on the environmental '
front.

Clinics are doing more with less


EDITOR:
High-quality mental health services in Monroe
County continue to be provided in a challenging
and stressful environment. This year, the Guidance
Clinic'of the Middle Keys and the Care Center for
Mental Health will merge their operations into a
single nationally accredited organization with
locations in Key Largo, Marathon and Key* West.
A single board of directors and executive man-
agement team will lead mental health.services for
the entire county. Besides making good business
sense, our elimination of administrative duplica-
tion will maximize our public funding for direct
client services. Additionally,. it will help mitigate
future public funding reductions due to lower tax
collections resulting from the continued decline in
our state and national economies.
This year, our combined state and local funding
for substance abuse and mental health services
was reduced by $743,000. .
We have not altered our commitment to provid-
ing a full range of substance-abuse mental health
services countywide. Through the efforts of our
staff and administrative economies, we continue
our partnerships with the Monroe County schools,
Sheriff's Office, local justice system, and health
and social services agencies. Our mutual goals are
to offer opportunities for our children to succeed
in school, treat and assist individuals with their
recovery, improve public safety, and minimize the
deleterious personal and financial effects untreated
addiction to alcohol, drugs and mental illness have
on individuals, families and the community..
We also provide testing for HIV and counsel-
ing, operate a personal growth center, and have
support teams using peer counselors, professional
therapists and case managers as a means of reach-
ing the maximum number of people we can., : .


Our economies are working. Our data reflect
that we have served an equal number of clients
compared to last year with less funding.
Clearly, our services are a vital and necessary
part of the health-care network for Monroe County
residents. Leadership, good management and a
dedicated staff will see us through these difficult
times; which, coincidently, make our services even
more vital.
We want everyone to know thatall of us &re
doing as much as we can to maintain quality serv-
ices that are geographically accessible and to get
them to those in need as quickly-as we can. We
.need your understanding and support.

Lower the speed limit on Venetian


EDITOR:
, Ever see something happen that
made you feel like your heart stopped?
That happened to me twice the other
day.
Two different times I saw two dif-
ferent 3 year-olds almost get hit by a
car in my neighborhood. Normally
seeing this happen would just make
one go home, thank God they weren't
hit, and hug your grandchildren a little
tighter the next time you see them.
But there is more to this story.
The entrance to Venetian Drive has
always been 15.mph starting at the
hairpin curve. The speed limit just nat-
urally went into the neighborhood and


with the children playing there, it
made sense. The Key West Police
Department was proactive in monitor-
ing the speeds, including the use of
the flashing sign showing your speed.
Recefitly, however, the speed limit on
Venetian Drive, frequented by children
and adults out strolling, was raised to
30 mph, which we all know means
people are doing 40 to 45 mph.
To the city of Key West, please
reconsider. This is a residential neigh-
borhood with many very small chil-
dren playing, and this speed limit is
literally an accident waiting to happen.

Some media are too close to the Navy


EDITOR:
As some local media continue to
reprimand the Monroe County com-
missioners, their citizens and our dem-
ocratic process for recent dissension
between the county and U.S. Navy,
recently released official Navy docu-
ments confirmed the predictable the
Navy command is challenged when it
comes to telling the truth.
The confirmed health problems
associated with flying FA/18 aircraft on
our service members and community is
concern enough for moral outrage. But'
the continued protection of this Navy
command, bestowed by certain biased
media, is wide of the mark.
If the reason for such biased articles
was meant to incite and divide our
community, a dated Navy tactic, it suc-
ceeded. Contaminating the communi-
ty's request for proper environmental
and health research relating to the
FA/18 Super Hornet, with the threat of
financial calamity, is reckless and has
created a state of retribution on our
community that seeks the truth.
As certain media question the valid-
ity of our democratic procedures and
the objectives of our elected officials,
one must question the fiduciary rela-
tionship between all local media and


the Navy command.
Local media outlets are feeling the
financial pressure of a lackluster econ-
omy. But pandering to the military ide-
ology and its "mission" mantra will
inevitably complete the media's evolu-
tion from community watchdogs to
military lapdogs. -
I would imagine that Naval Air
Station Key West's Southernmost Flyer
*newspaper, with 20 pages to promote
prejudicial, military propaganda intend-
ed for our community, would suffice.
Our commissioners have chosen to
place the health and well being of their
citizens above the distorted military
mission and the almhrghty dollar. Thank
God for that.
The Community's request for envi-
ronmental compliance, health research-
and proof of regulatory adherence has
been ignored. Scores of Freedom of
Information Act requests are routinely
denied and pertinent questions still
remain unanswered. Our requests are
countered with budget-restrictive
excuses..
If the Navy were AIG, our conmmu-
nity would be rioting in the streets with
tar and feathers.

Another successful seafood fest


EDITOR:
I would like to thank the locals who
work so hard at the Original Marathon
.Seafood Festival every year, the -
unsung heroes the fishermen cooks,
the sweet treat bakers, the stage crew
musicians, those who set up the field
and those who tap the kegs the list
goes on.
The same volunteers work year
after year tirelessly to make this the
best festival in the Keys. They work
without breaks to cook the best food
and give you the best service. We.
should all put our hands together for
these great behind-the-scenes workers.
From thestandpoint of visiting and


working with this group, I have learned
so much regarding what it takes to run
a festival. I feel honored and impressed
to have gotten involved with the
Organized Fishermen of Florida and
the Greater Marathon Chamber of
Commerce, who hold this event.
This. year broke all kinds of records
due to the hard work of all those who
worked, played and attended this com-
munity Event. This is a personal
expression of my feelings and thank
you for putting heads in beds. Our
local economy depends on all of us
pulling together for the greater good.

The Turkey Point nuclear plant would expand if Florida Power & Light had its way.
A public hearing on the proposal is Thursday night in Homestead.

Turkey Point expansion would harm Keys


EDITOR:
Expansion of the Turkey Point nuclear
power plant will be discussed at a Nuclear
Regulatory Commission public hearing
from 7 to 9 p.m. Thursday in the Palm
Room at the Keys Gate Golf Club in
Homestead.
This proposed project has received pre-
liminary acceptance, but does not have final
approval yet. Monroe County residents
should be concerned about the addition of
two more nuclear reactors in south Miami-
Dade County for a number of reasons.
The expansion would require approxi-
mately 80 million gallons of new- cooling
water. The proposed source is a new tax-
payer-funded treatment plant to recycle
south Miami-Dade sewage and pump it to
Turkey Point, since one of the precondi-
tions for the expansion is no new with-
drawals from the Biscayne Aquifer. Should
the pipeline be interrupted, FPL must have
a secure backup water source to avoid dan-
gerous overheating. The backup plan draws
from wells that will impact the aquifer.
FPL wants to build a dry storage facility
for nuclear waste at low-lying Turkey Point
instead of removing it to a safer location.


The overall safety record at Turkey
Point's existing reactors is not good.
Breaches in security and safety regulations
have resulted in fines from the Nuclear
Regulatory Commission.
Evacuation of the Keys after a malfunc-
tion at the plant would probably be folly
since the planned evacuation route for the
Keys is south to Key West, leaving about
70,000 residents approximately 100 miles
from potential nuclear fallout with little
avenue of escape.
The existing reactors at Turkey Point
could be flooded in years to come by global
waning. Why spend billions more to
expand it?
-FPL wants to obtain fill for the new
reactors by creating a huge borrow pit in
the Everglades. Taxpayers are already pay-
ing for restoration of decades of hydrologi-
cal mistakes in the River of Grass. This
could well be another. A new location, on
higher ground, would seem more sensible.
And a greener source of power, such as
wind or solar, would be much better for the
environment.

Pants trip up


Keys escapee


Coccarelli
is arrested at
Broward Wal-Mart
Keynoter Staff

An $11.50 pair of pants gave
up Stephen Coccarelli.
Coccarelli, a career criminal
who escaped from the Big Pine
Road Prison on April 9, was try-
ing to steal the pants from. a
Pompano Beach Wal-Mart on
Saturday when he was captured,
according to the Broward
Sheriff's Office.
Coccarelli was three years
into a 10-year prison term for a
Broward County robbery when
he walked away from the road
prison. It was his third prison
stretch dating back to 1990; he
has 47 felony convictions, most-
ly for grand theft and robbery.
The Broward Sheriff's Office
says. about 8 p.m. Saturday,
Coccarelli took the pants off a
shelf at the Wal-Mart and went
into a -bathroom. Wal-Mart loss
prevention officer James
Holmes says he saw Coccarelli
take off his shorts and put the
pants on, then watched as
Coccarelli walked out of the
store.


H ol m e s
t o 1 d
Coccarelli to
stop but
Coccarelli
told Holmes
that "if he
comes near
him, he is
. COCCARELLI going to kick
his" butt. It
didn't happen: Holmes tackled
Coccarelli and held him down
until deputies arrived.
Coccarelli, 38, was charged
with petty theft and resisting
arrest. He gave deputies the
name of Raymond Omar, but
when they ran his fingerprints
through state computers, they
determined he was actually
Coccarelli.
So in addition to petty theft
and resisting, Coccarelli was
charged with escape.
Florida Department of
Corrections spokeswoman Gretl
Plessinger says he'll stand trial
in Monroe County on the escape
charge before being returned to
prison -presumably not on Big
Pine to finish his 10 years on
a Broward County robbery con-
viction.

'Pair-O-Dice' costly


By KEVIN WADLOW
Senior Staff Writer
kwadlow@keynoter.com "


The derelict remains of the
Pair-O-Dice casino boat are
gone but two men still face
state charges of abandoning the
84-foot hulk in waters off Key
West.
"These things need to be
taken care of, and not just aban-
doned for other people to clean
up," said Lt. David Dipre, a
Marathon resident who coordi-
nates derelict-vesser efforts for
the Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission.
"We will prosecute those
-responsible," Dipre said.
The combined waters of
Monroe County and Miami-
Dade County may account for
nearly a third of the 1,500 ves-
sels confirmed as abandoned
and clogging state waters, Dipre
said Tuesday.
When the accounting is done,
final costs to cut the Pair-O-
Dice apart and remove the
remains from Key West Harbor
are expected to top $100,000,
Dipre said. I
The state declared it aban-
doned in February, after it broke
free from a mooring and ground-
ed on Sunset Key in. Key West
Harbor. Owner Michael
Marrone reportedly failed to.
heed FWC and Coast Guard
orders to remove the boat from
Sunset Key in a timely manner,
and the Coast Guard said the
vessel "threatened to obstruct
navigation and posed a threat to
the environment, as well as pub-
lic safety."
Marrorie, 56, of Key West
was -arrested on a charge of ves-
sel abandonment March 20. On
April 8, Richard C. Merrigan,
56, of Pompano Beach and
Oxford, Mass., surrendered on a
warrant also charging him in
connection with the Pair-O-
Dice case.
Merrigan was held in Monroe
County detention for four days
before he was released on a
$100,000 bond, according to
records.
"He drove himself down
from Massachusetts to turn him-
self in," said Officer Bobby
Dube, an FWC information offi-
cer.
The specifics of Merrigan's
relationship to the Pair-O-Dice
remains under investigation by


Officer Martin Messier and
Dipre, but both are believed to
have some responsibility for the
steel-hulled vessel.
"People need to properly
maintain and take care of their
vessels," Dube said. "If it falls
into poor condition, you just
can't throw the anchor out and
leave it. Our officers spend time
and effort to find out who is
responsible for abandoned ves--
sels."
Money to remove the Pair-O-.
Dice came from a $1.5 million.
fund .allocated by the Florida
Legislature in 2008. Anyone
convicted in connection with the
case may be hit with a bill for
the cost.
"Our agency has always been
serious about derelict vessels,"
Dipre said. "But you can post
[notices] on all the boats you


want, we still need the money to
remove them. Last year, the state
Legislature gave us some
money."
By the end of the state fiscal
year, FWC officials say they
may be able to remove 97 to 100
boats statewide with the $1.5
million.
State officers must determine
a boat is derelict, ttlen begin
efforts to have the owner remove
it. In some cases, criminal
charges may be filed.
"We give people ample
opportunities to take care of
these things," Dube said. "The
casino boat broke free from its
moorings: a couple of times."
People selling, boats should
be careful to make sure a vessel
title is transferred to the new
owner, Dube said. "A lot of
times, people say they sold a
boat, but the paperwork comes
back in their name," he said.

So says the Monroe County
Sheriff's Office, which on
Monday arrested three members
of a Key Largo .family for
allegedly trying to use a stolen
credit card to buy thousands of
dollars worth of goods from the
Florida City Wal-Mart.
The credit card was stolen,
along with other things, during a

March 17, deputies say. That
same day, the card was used at
several places in Florida City

Lazaro Reyes, 27, and Zayda


Rodriguez and Rosa Ramos-

the stolen card to purchase more
than $3,000 worth of goods.
In the tape, a man later identi-
fied as Lazaro Reyes swiped the
stolen card and put it in his pock-

the card, he produced a different
credit card, along with his dri-
ver's license, deputies say.
That card was rejected and
one of the women in the video,
identified as Rodriguez, called
the bank that issued the card to
dispute the rejected transaction.
The bank employee on the
phone ended the call when
Rodriguez couldn't answer secu-

say.
The Wal-Mart clerk picked
both Reyes and Rodriguez out of

A carbon-neutral future for Key West?


By SEAN KINNEY
skinney@keynoter.com


Key West Mayor Morgan
McPherson hopes to make Key
West a carbon-neutral destina-
tion, create a new industry on the
island arid reach out to Cuba to
work together on ocean conserva-
tion, all in one fell swoop.
McPherson says he's been in
touch with Noel Brown, -former
director of the .United Nations
Environmental Progi-ram 'and a
board member of the
International Ocean Institute,
about taking part in a global
ocean'conservation initiative.
"It will be the first of its kind
and the goal of it is to create a
progressive sustainable ocean
plan," McPherson told the
Keynoter.
Issues. to be tackled would be
marine ecosystem restoration, cli-
mate change, marine mammal


protection and ocean acidifica-
tion, among others.'
That's where Cuba comes in.
The International Ocean Institute
has offices in Cuba and St.
Petersburg. Political differences
aside, McPherson says the envi-
ronment would be a good jump-
ing-off point for talks with the
Communist nation that's just 90
miles away. .
"This will be a Havana/Key
West initiative, 'which would
show signs ..of the first interna-
tional relationship that is apoliti-
cal. This has to do strictly with an
ecosystem and building a bridge
from Key West to Cuba centered
around marine resources," he
says. .
On recent trips to Key West,
U.S. Senator Mel Martinez and
U.S. Rep. Kendrick Meek both.
identified environmental issues


as a good starting point for dia-
logue with Cuba.
But that's just one part of the
plan. McPherson has been work-
ing with Stuart Pimm, a Duke
University professor who special-
izes in environmental and marine
science and conservation, on a
plan to transform Key West into a
carbon-neutral city.
Carbon neutrality is achieved
when a person or entity takes
proactive steps, like planting
trees, to offset the sum of their
greenhouse gas emissions.
Pimm spends time every year
studying tropical ecosystems at
the Key West Tropical Forest and
Botanical Garden.
"Many people are realizing
that global warming is an issue
that will turn around and bite
them on the bottom," Pimm told
the Keynoter, with a distinct
British accent. "We're very, very
vulnerable in the Keys. We're


really at the front line."
Pimm challenged.his master's
degree students: "What would it
take to make Key West a carbon-
neutral destination? If Key West
can do it, anyone can do it. Key
West is an expensive place to get
to. That means people are burn-
ing a lot of carbon."
The students came back with a
surprising answer.
By charging tourists $2 apiece
and investing that money in
foliage, the city could become
carbon neutral. Pimm says. the
average tourist, during an average
stay, leaves behind one-fifth of a
ton of carbon.
"Our carbon footprint would
include everything," McPherson
says, "and the ultimate goal is to
not only use the footprint we have
by visitors and ourselves, but get
to the point where we're carbon
positive, and' this would be an
eventual income stream to the


city of Key West."
McPherson wants to convert
the 23-acre waste transfer station
on-Stock Island, known as Mount
Trashmore, into a tropical rain-
forest. Once carbon neutrality is
achieved, he says the city could
become carbon positive and cre-
ate a new industry around selling
carbon offsets, which go for
between $30 and $40 on the open

perfect combination of providing the best care while achieving the highest
level of dignity and security. With our solid reputation spanning five decades,
we're the right place when you need us.

AQ: Can my loved one stay in the Health Center even if they are not a
resident in the Independent Living apartment homes?
A : Yes, absolutely. It is hot necessary to be an East Ridge Retirement
Village resident to access the services of our Health Center. Whether it is for
a short-term stay after a hospitalization; or if your loved one is in need of long-
term~ nursing care, we are here for you. We have a therapy department, which
can work with your loved one to regain their strength and restore him or her to
their highest level of independence.

Medicare, private insurance and even some HMO plans.

the grounds of a 76-acre campus, and have access to the many amenities
East Ridge has to offer. The grounds have many pathways that families can
explore with their loved ones, and our activities department schedules events
both on campus and outside the community for residents to enjoy. Our caring

College name


change put on hold


By SEAN KINNEY
skinney@keynoter.com

It looks like a name change for
Florida Keys Community
College is up in the air at least
Until July.
College lobbyist Jeff Sharkey
told the Keynoter Tuesday that
college officials asked him on
Monday to pull an amendment
containing the proposed name
change from legislation passing
through the state House and
Senate.
The college Board of Trustees
voted on April 11 to direct
Sharkey to get the name change
put on the state legislative agen-
da. President Jill Landesberg-
Boyle favors, as does the board,
the name The College of the
Florida Keys. The idea is to get
away from stigmas attached to
the phrase "community college."
Sharkey said the bill contain-
ing the name change, a much
larger item dealing with state
community colleges, was doing
"well in the Senate and slow in
the House."
Based on that, he said the bet-
ter option was to request the
name change directly from the
state Board of Education at a
meeting in July and sidestep the
Legislature.
"It'll give the college some
exposure and it takes away the
potential that the bill won't pass,"
he said.
The concept of a name change
is part of a larger effort to rebrand
the school's image, and it's-


already been costly.
Last year, the college
launched its new motto, "Island
Living Island Learning." With
that came new signs for buildings
and vehicles, as well as promo-
tional materials, business cards
and letterheads.
The expenses included
$127,000 to Southernmost Signs,
$66,000 to Category 5 Design,
$60,000 to consultant Stamats
and $25,000 to Third Wave
Digital for a new Web site.
And that was just an image
adjustment. Now, right at a year
later, the college is shooting for
the full-scale name change.
"As a matter of concept, I
think it's going to cause confu-
sion to students as a four-year
degree indicator," Trustee Carey
Goodman said. Additionally, "I
think there's wasteful spending
going on over there."
Landesberg-Boyle told the
board when it met to vote on the
name change on April 11 that
funding for new signs after the
name change would come from
the state Public Education Capital
Outlay fund, not the college's
budget.
PECO is a state fund, generat-
ed by tax dollars and set up for
schools to pay off bonds and
improve facilities.
Landesberg-Boyle, board
Chairman Ed Scales and Vice
Chairwoman Anne Henderson
couldn't be reached for comment.

TRAILER FIRE:.Islamorada
firefighters douse a fire
^ Tuesday at the San Pedro
*,Trailer Park at mile marker
87.4. The call came in about
11:30 a.m. and the flames
were put out shortly after.
Two trailers burned and a
third was damaged. All were
vacant and no one was
hurt. No cause for the fire
was immediately known,
although firefighters say -
there were lightning strikes in
the area about 40 minutes
before, and that could have
sparked the first trailer.

Tax credits help Habitat

Key West chamber
seminar in Key
West Thursday V
By KAREN QUIST .
kquist@keynoter.com


Some of the state sales tax
collected at Manley-deBoer
Lumber Co. last year helped pay
for the construction costs of a
new Habitat for Humanity home
on Big Pine Key.
Manley-deB'oer and three
other Keys companies partici-
pated in a state program that
keeps tax dollars in the Keys
instead of sending them off to
Tallahassee, and Habitat for
Humanity of Key West and the
Lower Keys would like to
recruit even more businesses to
participate this year.
The Community Contribution
Tax Credit Program allows busi-
nesses to make a donation to
Habitat and receive a tax credit
for the same amount, said Bob
Calhoun, the Lower Keys affili-
.ate's executive director. Calhoun
will talk about the program at a
breakfast gathering Thursday
sponsored by the Key West
Chamber of Commerce.
"I encourage any business
owner to participate," said Erik
deBoer, co-owner of the lumber
company. "It's a very easy way
to help Habitat."
: Habitat -for Humanity is an
international nonprofit organiza-
tion that provides quality afford-
able housing. Families pay no-
interest mortgages on the homes
they'buy. They must attend
classes on. homeownership and
personal finance, as well as work
on their home or on other
Habitat projects.
The Lower Keys chapter has
also broadened its mission to
include providing affordable
rental housing, and with home
prices lower 'than they've been
in years, the affiliate is looking
for opportunities to buy.
It's becatise of programs like
the tax credit that the Lower.
Keys affiliate is able to have so
many homes in some stage of
development, Calhoun said.
Those include a dozen Stock
Island apartments that Habitat
closed on March 26 and started
renovating the next day, as well
as 18 new townhouse-stvle


Anna Donnelley of Chicago organizes tools at a Stock Island
apartment complex where an AmeriCorps crew and
Donnelley's family were doing repairs and painting. The 12-
unit apartment complex is an example of the project that'
businesses can help fund with the state's tax-credit program.


homes that should start arriving
at their Big Coppitt site this
week.
Calhoun explained how it
works: An appraisal is done on a
completed Habitat project,
whether a new home or a reno-.
vation, and the participant makes
a donation for the amount of the
appraisal. The tax credit applica-
tions are filed once a year, in
July, with the credits issued to
the. businesses about a month
later.
Erik deBoer said he went into
the.program with a little trepida-
tion, but was pleasantly sur-
prised to learn it was -just as
clear-cut as Calhoun had out-
lined.
Habitat started participating
in the tax credit program in
2005. The 2008 participants
were Manley deBoer,
Spottswood Cos., Historic Tours
of America and First State Bank,

Coinciding with the 27th
ir. annual Conch Republic
int Independence Celebration,
ever officials from the faux nation
-unveiled the Conch Republic
Smith National Park Service on
ed for Saturday.
\"ill The new branch of the
7 p.m., Conch Republic is. looking to
pm.rkt set aside land for endangered
species, partner with a local
of the nonprofit and' create an eco-
orld in nomic boon, all while having
" s as much fun as possible.
de. "I thought of the idea and I
realized this type of thing
couldn't be done without being
a part of the Conch Republic,"
says Joshua Peele, founding
director of'the Conch Republic
National Park Service.
iors Beele has a background in
he conservation, formerly work-
or the ing for the Florida Department
d s of Environmental Protection in
gina resource permit and sub-
54. merged land leases.
His first Conch Republic
ids endeavor is in the National
Key Deer Refuge on Big Pine
es Key.
For sale: 720,000 one-inch-
Iealth square pieces of land for $10
offers each. They're on a lot of just
ts 55 under an acre just east of Key
Deer Boulevard in the Pine
es are Crest subdivision.
sdays The $10 allows you to own
eks a piece of the rock and receive
a quite officious-looking deed
suitable for framing (actually,
is $20 $9.95 for a uniform deed and
call $19.95 for a personalized
deed). And a dollar of that
goes to Habitat for Humanity
of the Lower Keys and Key
West.
Late last year, Peele
approached Bob Calhoun,
e executive director of the
ocal Lower Keys Habitat chapter,
barbe- about a potential collaboration.
ire Calhoun was receptive.
m. to 7 So the Conch Republic, act-
e sta- ing as Conch Republic Squires
marathon LLC, of which Peele is the reg-
.,; ., istered agent, purchased the
land, which ,was, originally


donated to Habitat but was
later deemed environmentally
sensitive and unbuildable, for
$100.
Now it's been dubbed the
Conch Republic National Key
Deer Refuge. It's within the
U.S. National Key Deer
Refuge, which was established
in 1957.
Calhoun says Habitat was
"pleased to take a piece of sur-
plus land we had and put it to a
special conservation use to
protect the endangered Key
deer, among other species."
"It's placed under conserva-
tion and it will remain there
for the Key deer forever,"
Peele says.
The deer, which are the
smallest white-tailed deer, are
between 45 and 75 pounds
fully grown. Habitat destruc-
tion and hunting put their num-
bers down to around 50 in the
1940s. After the refuge was
established, the endangered
species' numbers have jumped
to between 600 and 800.
Other than the money
donated to Habitat' for
Humanity, the rest of the pro-
ceeds igo toward finding .and
acquiring other properties for


conservation, and toward retail
ventures; the Conch Republic
is working with local retailers
to offer wholesale prices and
profit, splitting the proceeds of
the sale of the deeds.
"It's giving'a. new product
to our local economy," Peele
says.
And.it is a product.

Struggles aside,
Conch coach eyes
state baseball title
By DICK WAGNER
Keynoter Contributor

After the Key West High
School baseball team's 8-4 loss at
South Dade on Saturday night -
a game in which the Conchs blew
a late lead and made seven errors
- coach Miguel Menendez told
radio broadcaster Rick Lopez on
the air that the team would win
the state championship.,
Monday, he said that he had
meant it.
"Obviously, I got caught up in
the moment and said it publicly,
but that is how I truly feel,"
Menendez said. "We have the
ability, and something in my gut
tells me we will make a run at
this thing:"
The Conchs' record is 13-11,
but they are only 4-11 against
good teams. They lost two of the
three games they played against
South Dade, which is 14-10.
"Obviously, our record is not a
great indicator of future success,
but I know how good we can be
and I know how good our compe-
tition is and I think we can win
it all," said Menendez, who is in
his fourth season as coach and
has yet to win a state tile for a


program that won its 11th cham-
pionship in 2005.
The Conchs had gone into
Saturday night's game with a
three-game winning streak fol-
lowing Friday night's 16-1
thrashing of St. Brendan at Rex
Weech Field. In that game, senior
Andrew Rodriguez hit the first
two home runs of his career,

Island Christian School's soft-

the District 16-A Tournament
semifinals with a big win Monday.
The Lady Eagles outscored
Colonial Christian, 28-15, to
advance to Tuesday's semifinal
round against top seed Princeton
Christian.
"It gives us at least one more
game in our season, and the girls
always like playing Princeton,"
said head coach Sheryl Yost.
"We'll try to play our best and see
what happens."
Results of the Tuesday semifi-
nal were pending at press time.
ICS eteranm Jennifdr 'tSubic
. raced to a paiifbf, irisidethd-park


home runs against Colonial, and
Abbey Lindhold slapped three hits
to lead the ICS hitters.
"Most of our girls had at least
two hits," Yost said. "It made for a
very long game two and a half
hours but it was worth it."
Kate DuPre got the pitching
decision for Island Christian.
Amanda Ihrig in center field
turned in several catches that cut
off Colonial threats.
The postseason victory dou-
bled the season win for ICS (2-

The 7-3 loss to Archbishop
Carroll ended the Lady
Hurricanes season, leaving the
club with a final 11-7 record.
"We'd hope to get deeper
into the tournament," said Paul
Grewe, co-coach with Mike
Young. "But we put ourselves
in this position by not getting
the district wins we needed."
The Lady Canes took a 2-1
lead over tournament host
Carroll in the top of the second.
Junior outfielder Andrea
Cockerham tagged a two-run,
two-out single with the bases
loaded.
Coral Shores opened the
inning with hits by Courtney
Molnar and Lauren Sanchez,
and loaded the bases with an
error. "It was a chance to get
some more runs but we didn't
string our hits together," Grewe
said. "That was the story of the
' Ashley SingFetfon, Molnar


and Cockerham each had two
of the Hurricanes' 10 hits.
Second baseman Stephanie
Lietaert tripled, and ftcfher
Holly Given singled.
Given held Carroll to seven
hits.
Coral Shores committed
only one error, but the timing
helped keep Carroll's three-run
third inning rally going.
Coral Shores' defense shut
out the Lady Bulldogs in the
final four innings, but they
could not make up the differ-
ence on the scoreboard.
"It's wasn't a bad year at
all," Grewe said. "There are a
couple games we gave-1way,
which would have given us a
pretty decent 13-5 record, but
you can't go back."
The Lady Hurricanes
dropped the regular-season
finale to Dade Christian, 7-5,
Friday in Tavernier. The loss
did not affect the district stand-
ings.

Keys Ultra gets closer


Racers are to run across as
many as 40 bridges and through
the Florida Keys island chain
beside the Atlantic Ocean, Florida
Bay and Gulf of Mexico during
the .second annual Keys Ultra-
Marathons set for May 17.
Racers can choose from three
competitions on a route stretching
down the Keys' renowned
Overseas Highway: a 100-mile
individual race from Key Largo to
Key West, a 50-mile individual
race from Marathon to Key West
and a 100-mile team relay race
from Key Largo to Key West. -All
races are to end at the same finish
line at the south end of Key West's
Smathers Beach.
Organizers expect more than
200 runners to compete along the
scenic course more than twice
as many as the inaugural event in
2008.
"The buzz about the race has
been very positive, and will trans-
late to a lot of fun for the racers
with the additional competition,"
said race director Bob Becker.
"We have many states represented
already, and a runner from,
England too."
The 100-mile individual and
team relay races are to begin at 6
a.m. Saturday on the sidewalk at


approximately mile marker 101
oceanside in Key Largo. The 50-
mile ultra is to begin at 10 a.m. at
mile marker 51 across from Leigh
Anne's Coffee House in
Marathon.
At least half the race is to be
run on sidewalks and service
lanes, with the remainder run fac-
ing traffic on wide road shoulders.
The Keys Ultras team relay is
designed for teams of up to six
runners covering the 100 miles.
Teams can be all male, all female
or co-ed.
Racers must check in at desig-
nated stations along the route and
cross the finish line by noon
Sunday, May 17. A social and
awards ceremony is set for 4 p.m.
Sunday at Dante's of Key West,
located at Conch Harbor Marina,
955 Caroline St.
The registration fee for the
100-mile individual race is $200,
with a fee of $150 for the 50-mile
individual race. The relay is $600
per team.

Dragon boat


deadline is near


Dragon boats such as this will fill the water at Sombrero
Beach. Saturday's the deadline to register your team.


Unique sport
comes May 9
to Midde Keys
The waters off Sombrero
Beach in Marathon are to be
transformed into a swift race-
course for the Battle in the Bay
Dragon Boat Festival set for
May 9.
Dragon boat racing, one of
the world's fastest-growing
water sports, involves 20 pad-
dlers moving in unison a
combination of strength and
teamwork.
The sport premiered in the
Keys in 2006 at Key West's
Trumafi Waterfront. This year's
venue offers spectators and rac-
ers a convenient location in the
Middle Keys. Soribrero Beach
provides a pristine' setting and
direct-from-the-beach launch for
the sleek, 40-foot-long race
boats whose elaborate designs
originated in ancient China.
The legend ofI'dragoi. boat.
racing dates back to the 4th
Century B.C. during the Ch'u


dynasty in China. The emperor's
personal advisor, Qu Yuan,
drowned himself in the Mi Lo
River in defiance of the ruler's
corrupt and indulgent lifestyle.
Local fishermen, in an effort to
keep the river's water dragons
and fish from consuming Qu
Yuan's earthly body, beat drums
and vigorously splashed the
water with their paddles.
The modern dragon boat race
is a re-enactment of these fisher-
men in the race to save their
martyr Qu Yuan from the crea-
tures of the deep. The dragons
are a strong and powerful sym-
bol of spring rains and growth in
Chinese culture.
Dragon boat racing is a sport
for men and women of all ages
and-abilities, and essential team
components include a competi-
tive spirit and the ability to work
together.
According to event director
Karen Bowers, a minimum of 20
.team s is :;-,-- '.. i a ?. '.! .

Errors costly for Conchs against Homestead


BASEBALL / From 17

including a grand slam. ,
It appeared as if the streak
would continue in Homestead
after a two-run triple by. second
baseman Frankie Ratcliff. helped
the Conchs take a 4-2 lead in the
top of the fifth inning against
South Dade. But then they fell
apart.
The Bucs, aided by three
errors (two by shortstop Michael


Arencibia and one by third base-
man D.J. Elomina), scored six
runs in the bottom of the fifth
against Ratcliff, who had come in
to relieve starting pitcher P.J.
Arencibia.
"I think we had a few guys
that haven't played that long at
the position they were in, so I
think that played into it,"
Menendez said. Michael
Arencibia has played most of the
"season in center field and
Elomina has only recently started


at third. -
South .Dade's first two runs
came on a wild pitch by P.J.
Arencibia in the third and a
throwing error by catcher Joseph
Gandolfo in the fourth.
Ever the optimist, Menendez
said. "We will get it worked out
this week in practice, and it will
be better. .I think we are really
close to turning the corner."
The comer will present itself
'Monday night at 7:30 at Mater
Academy in Hialeah Gardens,


when the Conchs play either
Mater or Belen Jesuit in the first
round of the district tournament.
They need to win Monday and
Tuesday to ensure a second con-
secutive state-playoff b6rth.
Key West will play its final
regular-season home game at 8
p.m. Friday against La Salle.
Menendez said he would proba-
bly use five or six pitchers to get
everyone ready for next week.

'GetLit' takeshome Big fish are tremi
$340,000 in World TnlnTi t aan the Gulf


For Miami angler Kitt
Toomey, winning Key
West's World Sailfish
Championship Saturday was
all about preparedness.
focus, responding quickly to
unexpected adversity and
skipping lunch.
The Get Lit, owned by
Toomey and captained by
Quinton Dieterle, took the
championship and -
$340.825 after the team
released 22 sailfish during
threejishing days. Other
teammates were Miami
anglers Peter Miller. Jon
Cooper, Claudio Martinez,
Kelly Mayo and Cap
Hinckley.
"We never ate on .the
boat during the entire tour-
nament we were very
focused,"' said Toomey,
whose team also won the
championship in 2003 and
2007. "It's how you react -
when things go wrong that
can result in extra,fish, and
-every fish counts.".
Not much went wrong '
for the Get-Lit crew until
mid-morning "on Saturday's
final fishing day, when the
team lost the lead it had.
maintained since scoring J 1
first-day releases.
"We made a move a little
bit further to. the east. off
Big Pine Key. and that's
where we found some bluer
water with a good current
and we started catching
fish," said Toomey, %% ho
said the team scored all six
final-day releases inathat
area at water depths
between 130 and 150 feet.
The Excavator. owned
by Patrick Merryman of
Duck Key. finished second
wiith 1-9.fish. Crew on the
Wee: in the Keys; with
owner Scott Robins of
Miami Beach, also released
19 fish but finished in third
place based on time.
Anglers on 77 boats
released a tournament total
of 564 sails and earned a
total cash payout-that
exceeded $1 million,
according to,tournament
director Michael Weinhofer.


make big push
into Keys waters

We're getting into the DTs.
Yep, that's right. Now is when just
about all anglers ask me about is
the .DTs.
"Are they there yet? Can.I get
them now or should I wait anoth-
er week or so? What should I use
to get them?"
No, I'm not talking about a
drinking problem. Late April is
when two species in particular
highlight our fishing dolphin
and tarpon the DTs. And it's
the fish, not you, that should be
trembling.
Both dolphin- and tarpon pro-
vide anglers with some of the best
fighting available, and both come
into local waters in such numbers
that everyone has a shot at catch-
ing them. It's not like going out
for a marlin and hoping you get to
hook one, but rather you expect to
hook and catch more than a few.
Dolphin in particulargive you
the shot at catching a big bull
(male) or cow (female) while
you're trolling. And you can enjoy
the opportunity of catching
numerous schoolies the small-
er ones that can accompany
them as you work your prize to
the boat.
We're just at the start of the big,
push of dolphin into local waters
and as of late, the inside edge of

Stream has
remained
fairly close
to the reef
line.. That's
allowed
many of the
smaller
boats to
venture
into the
areas plen-
ty of fish
have been
working


through.
As we get well into, summer,
the normal range for good action
is 18 to 30 miles beyond the reef
but for now, the action has been
quite good within 10 miles of the
edge of the reef, with a few days
of exceptional action only 3 miles
out.
Of course, trolling ballyhoo
has remained the hottest item for
capturing these nice fish, and
when I say nice fish, I am talking
about a good number of dolphin
brought in in the 20-pound-plus
range. Several well over 40
pounds were taken just last week.
There are few species this size
that most any angler can target
and expect to catch on a regular
basis. They're an excellent species
to target on light tackle and have a
blast.
We have a custom bead chain
rig that makes rigging ballyhoo
simple and easy while also getting

the hook completely back in the
bait, which prevents any chance of
a cut-off on the bait. It also gives
you protection from being cut off
.by toothy critters such as wahoo
or very large dolphin while giving
you the flexibility of handling
sailfish.
As for the Ts, it's getting to be
prime time for tarpon throughout
most of the Keys waters. Literally
hundreds of tarpon have arrived
the past week or so around the
bridge channels to go along with
the numerous fish that are stalking
the flats daily.
At the channels, mornings and'
evenings are still the best time to
get action, while thejiats provide
-a good bet during the mid-day
hours. Live mullet, live shrimp
and live crabs are by far the best
baits, although plenty are taken on
'artificial lures. Understand that
most small tarpon are 35-plus
pounds and the average this time
of year is more than 80.
I don't care" where you are
from that is a big-fish.
We have a couple of tarpon
tournaments coming up that might
interest you.
The 43rd annual Marathon
International Tarpon Tournament
kicks off on,April 30 for three
evenings of fishing. Then on May
9 and 10, it's the 33rd annual
Ladies Tarpon Tournament. Both
target tarpon on 12- and 30-pound
test line and are open to everyone.
We have information on both
events at the store or by calling
743-6139..
Back to the DTs: The best
thing about them is that you can
do both in the same day. You can
hit your favorite bridge channel in
the early morning and then head
out offshore for the dolphin, or
you can return after a day offshore
to work some tarpon in the
evening. Either way, you cannot
find too many places on Earth
were you could go for bi fish this
close to home and actually expect
to catch them on a daily basis.
Just think, two big dolphin and
two big tarpon and you have
caught roughly 200 pounds of fish
in a day. Trust me, that just kicks
the B out of bass.
