The initiative, dubbed Island TIME: Transition Into Math Excellence, is a fiveyear plan that comprises the quality enhancement plan component of FKCC's re-accreditation process, overseen by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools. The college hopes to be re-accredited for 10 years in June. It's crucial because students at a regionally accredited school are capable of transferring credit hours to other colleges and universities, and able to gain access to federal and other types of financial aid they otherwise couldn't."If we don't get reaffirmed," said Erica MacWilliams, dean of student affairs and accreditation, "we may as well close our doors. We want our credits to transfer and we want our students to get financial aid."Florida students entering college have to take what's called the Postsecondary Education Readiness Test to determine their level of math competency; there is an exemption for students meeting scoring thresholds on the Scholastic Aptitude Test or ACT. The new program is designed to increase the success rate of students who test below the college level; those students have to take non-credit courses before they can enter math classes required by their particular degree track. The former classes "basic mathematics" and "introduction to algebra" are being replaced with two sections of "developmental math." The traditional "talk and chalk" teaching method is being replaced by a technology-driven course that will allow student to work at their own pace, providing opportunity for more one-on-one interaction with instructors and tutors.

The tornado warning was due to expire at 10 p.m.The warning prompted Monroe County Administrator Roman Gastesi to send all county workers home when the warning took effect. He cited "severe weather approaching the area."Today could be an awful day for the beach or boating. Winds are expected to blow 20 to 25 knots and seas offshore could run seven to nine feet.However, locals and visitors can expect to trade their slickers in for some coolweather gear as the end of the week comes, as predictions indicate a big drop in temperature. In fact, the prolonged wet weather, the result of a large and slow moving lowpressure system, is expected to begin clearing tonight. At that point, Key West National Weather Service meteorologist Chris Rothwell said, look for the low temperature in the Lower and Middle Keys to drop to around 70, with the high around 80, "and a few ticks cooler in the Upper Keys."Tonight, "We should see some clearing," Rothwell said.Rothwell said over a three-day period running from 7 a.m. Sunday until 7 a.m. Tuesday, instruments at Key West International Airport recorded 10.35 inches of rain. In Marathon, 8.19 inches fell, and 8 inches fell in Key Largo.

The Monroe County Sheriff's Office says such a boat a Sedan Bridge Sea Ray was stolen from Marina Del Mar at mile marker 100 in Key Largo on Thursday. The agency says the owner, from Miami Beach, brought the vessel down on Oct. 11 intending to stay five days with his family. Then on Thursday, the dock master saw the vessel leaving the marina around 10 a.m. When it didn't return later that day, she tried getting in touch with the owner, and finally did on Friday.He told her no one had permission to take the boat, so she called the Sheriff's Office, which is still searching for the vessel, called the Cynthia Marie Also looking for it are the U.S. Coast Guard and state Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission.55-footer is taken from Marina Del MarKEY LARGOThree in line to buy Peary CourtThe company that's selling the Peary Court neighborhood in Key West for the U.S. Navy is working with three prospective buyers interested in taking over ownership and management of the 23-acre, 157-unit residential site.Meanwhile, staff with the city's Planning Department recommends an interim land-use designation of zoning in progress that would serve as a placeholder, limiting more development on the property until the futureland-use element of the city's comprehensive plan and land development regulations can be changed.Representatives of Balfour Beatty Communities, a Newton Square, Pa., company that manages Navy housing and is overseeing the Peary Court sale, would not identify the three potential buyers or price range.But city Planning Director Don Craig said he had heard "rumored" figures in the $25 million to $30 million range for the Palm Avenue complex.Key West attorney David Paul Horan, the local counsel for Balfour Beatty subsidiary Southeast Housing Inc., said the plan is to sell the entire parcel to a single buyer.Meeting at 6 p.m. Thursday at Old City Hall, the city Planning Board will receive an update on the city's end of the project, potentially approving the zoning-in-progress designation and sending it to the City Commission for a final OK.From there, changes to the comprehensive plan and land development regulations would be coordinated with the state Division of Community Planning, formerly the Department of Community Affairs."This interim zoning designation gives us control over the types of development that could occur on the property," Craig said. "It also provides the future property owner, whoever that may be, with clear direction as to their rights to maintain that number of units."But during that period of time, it will not allow the property owner to move ahead with variances, development plans, exceptions, conditional uses, that mightNavy property could go for $30 millionBy SEAN KINNEYskinney@keynoter.comBy SEAN KINNEYskinney@keynoter.comKEY WESTSee College,2ASee Peary Court,2ASee Weather,3A Fishing the Florida KeysThis weekend will bring much cooler temperatures to the Keys,and that means a big change in fishing.

A56-year-old Marathon woman who police say was caught with 6.5 pounds of marijuana Friday night says she needed it to battle pain from rheumatoid arthritis, says the Monroe County Sheriff's Office. Lillian Jennen was charged with felony possession and had her 1998 Saturn and $5,070 in cash seized for possible forfeiture. Deputy Becky Herrin says the agency's Special Investigations Division received a tip Jennen had the illegal weed. Deputy Chuck Kellenberger saw the car southbound on U.S. 1 on Grassy Key around 7:30 p.m. and followed it as it turned onto Coco Plum Drive. He pulled Jennen over after seeing she wasn't wearing her seatbelt, Herrin said. She said Jennen "was nervous" as she spoke with Kellenberger and that "her hands were shaking and she was breathing quickly." Kellenberger reportedly smelled the marijuana, and she reportedly admitted she drove to Miami to buy it. Jennen said the $5,070 was originally meant to buy more weed but she changed her mind, Herrin said.

"It sort of stunts them in the continuation of their college career," she said. "We're seeing students drop out entirely because they couldn't get through the developmental math. It's heartbreaking.According to statistics compiled as part of the reaccreditation process, between July and October, out of 362 students tested, 119 placed into "basic mathematics" and another 116 into "introduction to algebra."From data compiled over a five-year period, McKiernan said that 63 percent of first-time college students tested into "basic mathematics." Only 39 percent of them "were successfully completing the course and advancing. Of those students, more than half were withdrawing from their courses, and some even from their degree programs.""In short, many FKCC students were abandoning their education before they ever got started."The Island: TIME program will be housed in a new classroom/lab space that is still being outfitted with 40 computers and new furniture.Instructor Susan Carroll, a 20-year math teacher, and a team of two assistants will teach the classes, utilizing the My Math Lab program, which features an electronic textbook, video lessons and applications that gauge student progression and grade papers. "Alot of my current students are really looking forward to this," she said. "It's going to be a lot more individually focused." "Usually students who are taking developmental classes in general, not just math, one of the things they need to do is learn how to be a student." "I think the way nationally we've been teaching math has become antiquated," McKiernan said. "The scenario of lecture-based instruction is not really working for today's students. We want to spur a revolution-a cultural change instructionally at the institution." She said that if Island: TIME proved effective, the same method could be applied to reading and writing instruction.Math overhaul for Keys collegeFrom College,1A get in the way of or harm the effort to amend the comprehensive plan and the zoning. It is basically a placeholder, if you will." Issues noted in city planning reports include impacts to the city's hurricane evacuation plan, the effect on the city's building permit allocation system, whether the units are up to code, and whether a percentage of the units must be designated as "affordable." "The existing regulation contemplates or requires new development have 30 percent of the units affordable," Craig said. "The question becomes: Is this new development? No, it was built in 1994-98 when we did not have jurisdiction over it. Therefore, do we have the right, as the city, to require some percentage of affordable housing?""That'll clearly be a policy decision from the City Commission. Balfour Beatty and the Navy both know this issue is there and will be dealt with." Overall, Balfour Beatty manages 895 homes in Key West that are rented to enlisted, civilian and contract personnel, along with non-military-affiliated residents. Before Peary Court became Navy housing, the city leased the space and used it as a park. In 1994, as the housing development was gearing up, former City Commissioner Harry Powell set himself up on the property for 10 hours, explosives strapped to his body, to block the project. He was charged with burglary, extortion, possession of explosives and threatening to use explosives, and served a year in state prison.No changes on propertyFrom Peary Court,1AAccreditation no easy processIn the process of obtaining re-accreditation for Florida Keys Community College, staff has been working since 2009 to evaluate all aspects of college academics, operations and finances.Meeting next with a visiting team from the accrediting body Southern Association of Colleges Schools in midNovember, college officials should know by next summer if their compliance report and quality enhancement plan are acceptable and the organization will accredit the school for another 10 years.Without accreditation, students can't transfer credits to other schools and financial aid would be difficult to obtain. If re-accredited, the designation would start in June and last 10 years. The quality enhancement plan, the centerpiece of the re-accreditation process, outlines a sweeping change in FKCC's mathematics instruction and curriculum, while the compliance report provides an in-depth look at 82 specific criteria."It's a 10-year process" based on peer review, said Eric MacWilliams, dean of student affairs and accreditation, "with a five-year interim report. You're constantly reporting to SACS. It keeps you on your toes and it makes you keep quality in mind."Of the quality indicator, MacWilliams laid out questions FKCC staff should keep in mind when working with students: "Are they learning? Who is learning best? Are they achieving the outcomes we expected? Should we make changes in our programs and services?" Areas included in the SACS assessment include facilities, financials, institutional effectiveness, program content, faculty and their credentials, and student support services. The report is essentially a narrative that accounts for FKCC's compliance with criteria in specific fields, then embeds links to actual documentary evidence that corroborates what is laid out in the report. Problem areas would be identified by the SACS team and sent back to college staff for review and, if needed, corrective action.All aspects are examinedBy SEAN KINNEYskinney@keynoter.comKEYS COMMUNITY COLLEGE Cops: Elderly woman ripped offAccused of defrauding an elderly Lower Keys woman of more than $100,000 over two years, a former handyman was booked into the Monroe County jail Monday.Mark A. Costa, 51, was arrested Sept. 1 in Mesa, Ariz., where he had moved during a months-long investigation into his relationship with Betty Lou Crusoe, an 80-yearold resident of Key Haven.Costa was extradited to Monroe County this week and booked into the Plantation Key Detention Center, where he remained Tuesday in lieu of $150,000 bond.From March 2009 to March 2011, "Mark Costa used the victim's checking account as if it were his own, spending more than $100,000 of her money to benefit himself and his partner," Detective Diane Mimosa of the Monroe County Sheriff's Office wrote in a probablecause affidavit.Crusoe told detectives and Department of Children and Families investigators that she invited Costa, who had performed some work for her since 2007, to move into her waterfront home temporarily.She said she expected Costa to move out when his boyfriend was released from jail but the boyfriend moved in. Crusoe denied authorizing the men to act as caregivers, draw salaries or have access to her bank accounts. Costa apparently set up an online banking system for the victim's accounts and used it to transfer money. The victim told officers she had no idea how online banking works. "Between January 2009 and March 24, 2011, Mark had over $100,000 in checks written to him," investigators noted.The victim said she did not like Costa's boyfriend and would not pay him anything. However, the boyfriend was paid $84,698 in checks from her account over an eightmonth period. That included thousands of dollars in "labor" for putting up decorations on Christmas 2010.Investigators noted many of the victim's checks were listed as being for various home "projects," but the amounts appear to be wildly inflated or written for dubious work. Few receipts were found. Costa faces felony counts of committing grand theft on a victim over age 65 and repeatedly using a credit card without permission.

The gun failed to go off. George Page, 40, whom jail records say is a laborer, is charged with aggravated assault, criminal mischief, burglary and theft for the incident, which took place Friday on Bayview Drive. The Monroe County Sheriff's Office says that about 1 a.m., Page was at his ex-girlfriend's house, along with the victim, a 41year-old man. For whatever reason, Page fired the flare gun at the victim, who then pushed Page out the front door and closed it. Page reportedly ran away after damaging the door. After sun-up, Detective Francisco Gaete was assigned to investigate and, on his way to Bayview Drive, saw Page crossing U.S. 1 at mile marker 99 and stopped to talk. A deputy was called to detain Page while Gaete continued to Bayview Drive. Afemale friend of Page, Tommie Camp, was also on the scene where Page was detained, and he gave her a bag he was carrying.

Jeweler arrested yet againAn Upper Keys jewelry store owner was jailed on Tuesday, accused of selling a ring he had on consignment and then failing to pay the ring's owner the amount they agreed upon for the sale. This is the second time in 15 months Jeff Halliday, who turned 52 on Monday, has been jailed because of his business practices. The victim this time, an Islamorada woman, told Detective Patrick Crozier from the Monroe County Sheriff's Office she brought her engagement ring into Halliday's shop, Coin of the Realm, in Islamorada, in August 2009. She said he agreed to sell it for her for $6,500 and give her $4,200, keeping the rest.Deputy Becky Herrin said she returned to the shop in November 2010 and asked for the ring back because it hadn't sold. Halliday reportedly told her he sold it to a friend but hadn't received the money.She returned several more times looking for her money but he kept saying he didn't have it yet, Herrin said. She finally went to the State Attorney's Office to file a complaint and was referred to the Sheriff's Office. Halliday was charged Tuesday with grand theft and violating a law requiring him to have a secondhand dealer's license to engage in consignment sales. Bond was set at $6,500 the sale price of the ring.Back in July 2010, Halliday was charged with dealing in stolen property related to the purchase of a shipwreck coin from a burglary suspect. Court records show he completed pretrial intervention.This time, it involves engagement ringAprogram being proposed for Florida Keys waters could provide free or low-cost sewage pumpouts for boats throughout the islands.The Monroe County Commission, meeting today in Key West, will consider a request from staff to proceed in negotiations with the National Marine Waste Foundation to operate a countywide pumpout service at a cost of $1.5 million annually.More than half the cost an estimated $800,000 could be funded through a Clean Vessel program administered by the state Department of Environmental Protection. "In short, the objective is to provide free pumpout service for every Monroe County recreational vessel with a holding tank," Waste Foundation Executive Director Dan Martin in his written proposal to the county.The Destin-based foundation has reached an affiliation agreement with Mote Marine Laboratory to use space at Mote's Summerland Key facility, and operate under Mote's nonprofit status to receive state funding, according to the proposal.The foundation also would seek other grants, and money from Monroe County's Marine Resources budget and local municipalities."They are proposing very good coverage with multiple boats and multiple captains," County Administrator Roman Gastesi said Monday. "This obviously could help our nearshore water quality tremendously." No final decisions on a contract will be sought today, only permission to proceed in talks with the foundation, Gastesi said. Another proposal from LPS Services was rejected by a selection committee as inadequate. Key West attorney David Paul Horan, a Waste Foundation board member, spoke to the County Commission in January about free pumpouts to safeguard Keys waters from being damaged by septic waste illegally discharged by some boaters.County Marine Resources Senior Administrator Rich Jones said talks with the foundation likely would seek to drop some remote areas from coverage in an effort to lower the program's annual cost.The foundation proposes to operate at least six boats throughout unincorporated Monroe County, and talk with local municipalities to run operations in areas like Key West and Marathon. The Waste Foundation is associated with PumpOutUSA, a firm that builds all the septic-pumpout boats now used in the Keys.The county runs one pumpout boat in Key Largo (currently not operating until a new contractor is signed) while cities have their own boats.Putting all the licensed captains and 11 boats under the Waste Foundation could create "an economy of scale" that could make the operation feasible, Gastesi said. Monroe County initially would be asked to turn over about $200,000 in Boating Improvement Funds it now spends on its pumpout operation. "We're not talking about taking money away from channel markers or removing derelict vessels," Gastesi said. "It's about enhancing the service." Monroe County is working on a pilot anchoring program approved by the state to create new rules for anchoring boats in Boca Chica Channel, Key West Harbor and Key Largo's Sunset Cove. Part of that program would be requiring boats in those areas to have pumpouts. "We don't want to require people to have to jump through hoops if we don't have the service available," Jones said.

"It was a lot of rain for an airport that sits only 2.5 feet above sea level."He noted that the runway never flooded; rather, the parallel taxiway had standing water that was removed with pumps. The deluge caused some flooding in the Southernmost City, temporarily closing down parts of Front and United streets, Patterson Avenue and Atlantic Boulevard; swamping several vehicles; and spurring business owners in low-lying parts of Old Town to sandbag their establishments.Some homes in the area of Rose Street and Atlantic Boulevard may have sustained some flood damage. The only other rainrelated incident involved a rake-on-truck assault. Catherine Street resident Alex Boehm was using a rake to clean his storm drain when Rodney Berg drove by, creating a wake. "Boehm said he became angry," according to a police report, "and swung his rake at Berg's vehicle, striking it on the hood." Boehm apologized and Berg declined to press charges.Keys dousedFrom Weather,1AHomestead man struck, killedAHomestead resident was killed early Sunday while walking on U.S. 1 in Key Largo, the Florida Highway Patrol reported. It was the second straight traffic fatality in Monroe County stemming from a pedestrian being hit on the highway in Key Largo, and the 13th overall south of Florida City this year. Jean Bernard, 43, apparently died immediately after being hit around 1 a.m. by a northbound van driven by Donald Miller, 67, of Key Largo. FHPinvestigators said Bernard was walking in the northbound lanes of U.S. 1 near mile marker 97. No charges were filed at the scene pending additional investigation. The last Keys traffic death was Sept. 21, when a 59-year-old Vermont woman died after being struck while walking across the southbound lanes of U.S. 1 at mile marker 99, about two miles from the scene of Sunday's accident. Meanwhile, wet weather may have been a factor in two Saturday accidents in the Florida Keys. A2003 Hummer plunged into waters near Conch Key around 4:10 p.m., forcing the driver to escape through a side window. Ramon Gonzales, 62, of Davie was headed north in a rainstorm when the Hummer veered off the west side of U.S. 1 near mile marker 63. The Hummer "struck a chain-link fence, then wooden pallets, then a small tree," FHPTrooper T.P. Reilly reported. The SUVthen "drove over several large boulders." Gonzales was treated for head and neck injuries, and ticketed for careless driving. The driver told the trooper he "fell asleep." His $26,000 vehicle was listed as totaled.

EDITORIALThe downpours arent all badLETTERS TO THE EDITORZip line bad for birdsI am writing in opposition to the proposed zip line at Crane Point Hammock in Marathon When Keith Douglass was director of this facility, he invited me to join the board of directors, which I was pleased to do. I was on the board during the transition to the new director and for a few months after. When it became clear that the new, No. 1 priority (replacing education) was this zip line, I stepped down from the board. Zip lines are being promoted in the Keys as integral attractions like in places such as Costa Rica and Hawaii. Last year, I went on a bird-watching tour in the cloud forest in Costa Rica, advertised as including a canopy tram tour. Well, the tram supports were also used for zip lining. All of the zippees scream when they zip, which is extremely irritating and, of course, scares off all of the birds. For those who might not know, zip lines are lines that go from a high elevation to a lower one, so the zippee zips along at an exciting high speed (thus the screams). Besides everything else being noted in recent letters that oppose this plan, please consider the fact that in the middle of Crane Point Hammock is a very successful wild bird center, often highlighted in our local newspapers. How would continual human screaming affect this effort? Last point I find it very hard to believe that this facility could support 21 full-time employees. Laurie Richardson Key LargoNo tax funds for zip lineRe: The proposed zip line at Crane Point Hammock in Marathon: Azip line is a great experience. The question is, is it a profitable business? If it is a profitable business, why do you need government grants? Why use the peoples money to finance it? Government has a terrible track record of running businesses. Most government businesses fail or do not generate a profit and need to be subsidized with tax money. If the profit potential exists, there should be a line of entrepreneurs waiting to invest in starting a zip line. The problem with the proposed zip line in Marathon highlights the social drift of our expectations of government. We should be trying to limit its intrusion into our lives rather than expand its reach. Make it easy for an investor to obtain the necessary permits and licenses. If the investors dont want it, we have to ask ourselves what is the government doing by getting involved in a private business. James Maun Key West Editors note: The Marathon City Council has applied for $735,000 in state Community Development Block Grant funding to help build the $1.1 million zip-line course. Crane Point says it would create 21 jobs. The city says it will secure a line of credit to repay the state for up to four jobs ($140,000) if those 21 arent realized.Support the zip lineAfter reading about a groups opposition to the proposed zip line at Crane Point Hammock in Marathon, Im reminded that we are a nation, state, county and city of further wussified people. If you are against something, be against it. Dont try to rationalize your gripe by pulling the endangerment-to-a-species card. As the article states, there are power lines running the length of the property and they havent been an issue. Have you ever seen a wire that didnt support many pigeons? By the way, why dont all the folks that are concerned for the natural state of the hammock chip in $40,000 to $50,000 each so the area can stay operational instead of being developed into a condo complex or perhaps a restaurant? Having traveled extensively around the world, I have occasionally gone zip lining. I never have been able to witness the beauty of an area in the same fashion. The zip line allowed us to move through the area without putting a foot on the ground, throwing cigarettes down, trash, etc. I say if you build it, they will come. If you build it, you control how people view and impact the ecosystem. Steven Cook MarathonThey might interrupt outdoor activities but theyre essential for maintaining our potable waterEven though were pretty tired of all this rain, the folks who measure South Floridas water reserves are jumping for joy. The level of Lake Okeechobee measured on Oct. 17 reached 52.6 feet. Thats 1.75 feet above where it was last year and an equally impressive 1.26 feet over historical averages this time of year. This, thanks to the virtually unprecedented rain event that is covering the southern half of the state. Quoting from the South Florida Water Management District: Saturday, Oct. 8, was the wettest single day in the upper and lower Kissimmee basins combined in nearly 100 years. Youve heard of a 100-year flood event? Well, we experienced a 100-year rain event.In that one day, the storm dropped an average of 6.05 inches of rain in the two basins spanning approximately 3,000 square miles, with local maximums up to 14.09 inches. The second wettest day was recorded in 1933.And all that rain was before this past weekends and Mondays deluge added to the record books. As October brings a close to the normal rainy season and the worst threats from major hurricanes South Florida enters the so-called dry season. This is also when Keys tourism numbers begin to climb, more people are staying in hotels and more snowbirds head back to the Keys all of which increases water use during the season.Having reserves stored up to carry us through these winter dry months is important, and impacts what we pay for water since the Florida Keys are dependent on water wells in extreme south Miami-Dade and a supplemental water supply produced by reverse osmosis plants.Earlier this year, Key West experienced one of the driest February-April periods on record. Running the Florida Keys Aqueduct Authoritys Miami-Dade desalination plant 24 hours a day for six weeks during the height of the dry spell cost an extra $4,000 per day in electricity and chemical costs. The bill for six weeks in May-June topped $120,000. That record dry spell was broken when rains began late in June. So next time you lament another wet weekend, just remember things could be a whole lot worse down here without our rainy season to replenish our drinking water supply.Mainland floodgates help manage the water supply for South Florida. LETTERS TO THE EDITORWhat would they think?If our forefathers could come back and give a speech, they would say that our government has really screwed things up and gotten too intrusive in our lives too many laws, passing bills without reading them, getting to tell what is good for you to eat or what you do with your free time, Michelle Obamas control-your-life campaign. They would also say Congress is out of touch with the average American and is very irresponsible with the taxpayersdollars. Government is too bloated. And one more thing: Back in our day, we had earthquakes, hurricanes, tornadoes and major thunderstorms but we didnt know what to name them back then, so those things are not something new that occurs now and then. That is the speech our forefathers would give Chris Dennis Marathon A zip line like this one,in St.Lucia,is proposed for Marathon.Proponents say it would bring tourists and jobs while those opposed say it would negatively impact wildlife and not create the jobs organizers say it would. Thanks for the rideWe would like to give a big thank you to Ed Greger of Island Design Build and Remodel/Island Granite and Stone for driving us in the Marathon High School homecoming parade in his Cadillac. Abigail Connell Jonathon Rios Mr. and Miss Sophomore MarathonKnow your rightsFloridas Long-Term Care Ombudsman Program joins Gov. Rick Scott in celebrating ResidentsRights Month this October. ResidentsRights Month emphasizes the fundamental rights of residents of long-term-care facilities to be treated with dignity and respect, and to have a say in decisions affecting their care. In nursing homes, these special rights range from the right to choose a physician and pharmacy to the right to a 30-day written notice prior to discharge. Residents in assisted-living facilities and adult family-care homes have rights that range from unrestricted private communication to reasonable opportunity to exercise and go outdoors at regular intervals. ResidentsRights Month is a valuable opportunity not only to educate our communities on the specific set of rights given to residents when they enter long-term-care facilities, but also to inform Floridians of the services available through the Ombudsman Program and our team of volunteers. If a long-term-care resident ever feels his or her rights are being violated, a volunteer ombudsman can investigate on the residents behalf and seek a resolution. Anyone may contact the Ombudsman Program to submit a complaint or concern on behalf of a long-term-care resident. All program services are free and confidential.In Florida, there are more than 160,000 residents living in long-termcare settings. As we celebrate ResidentsRights Month, I encourage you to visit someone you know in a long-term-care facility, volunteer in a facility, participate in ResidentsRights Month events, or inquire about becoming a volunteer ombudsman. Your assistance and attention helps ensure that the voices of long-term-care facility residents do not go unheard and demonstrates to residents that they have not been forgotten. Let us take the time to give something back to a generation that has given so much.Individuals interested in volunteering, learning more about the Ombudsman Program or learning about scheduled ResidentsRights Month activities throughout Florida may call (888) 831-0404 or visit http://ombudsman.myflorida.com Jim Crochet State ombudsman Department of Elder Affairs TallahasseeStrides toward a cureWhere do I start? Did we do it or did we do it? The Strides Walk of the Florida Keys was an impressive success. Congrats to all of those who sponsored, volunteered, walked and planned this inaugural event.This was the first-ever American Cancer Society walk in the Keys to bring awareness to the continued fight against breast cancer as a major killer of women. As I looked out of the crowd of almost 500 walkers, the tears filled my eyes. I could not believe my eyes with the sea of pink-decorated bras worn by men, women and children. The sky turned blue and we were off. The pride was felt as the walkers passed.There were many concerns in taking on this project logistics, location, numbers and goals. Bahia Honda State Park was the perfect location a natural spot. We owe a huge thank you to Ranger Eric. We exceeded all expectations with total walkers and raised almost $34,000. And the Real Men Wear Pink Sneakers fundraiser will bring in about $25,000. The credit for this success goes to the planning committee from all areas of Keys. From my heart, I wish to thank all who played a part in this success. Know that we are all working for the same cause to end cancer in our lifetime. The awareness and funds we raised will continue services for patients in the Keys and assist with research funding. Without research, we will never find a cure. Charlotte Quinn MarathonFishermen play by rulesIn reference to my recent letter regarding the arrest of two people with whole stone crab on their vessel out of season: I stated that saving crabs by removing them from lobster traps and then putting them in one trap and feeding them to they can be harvested on opening day is a common practice. It is not a common practice and never was. I personally did this but I cant speak for the commercial fishing industry. I havent commercially fished for the past four years and prior to that, the last three years all I had was stone crab gear, so its been seven years since I pulled lobster traps. The commercial fishermen still in this industry today are the survivors and professionals; they take conservation laws seriously. I apologize to them for putting them in a bad light. I wrote my original letter to point out that the individuals involved in the stone-crab case were saving the crabs for opening day. Ronald Randall Key Colony Beach Editors note: The writer is referring to a case in which a Stock Island father and son were arrested for having six stone crabs out of season. The season started Oct. 15. Keynoter photo by RYAN McCARTHYThe Marathon High School football team waves to the crowd during Thursdays homecoming parade along U.S.1.

BusinessFishermen's hires CFOThe Fishermen's Community Hospital board in Marathon has hired Michael Schimming as its new chief financial officer. Most recently, he was the CFO for Allegiance Health Management in Shreveport, La., with more than 40 facilities including acute-care, long-term and criticalaccess hospitals like Fishermen's, and inpatient and outpatient psychiatric units. Previously, Schimming, who is single, was the chief executive officer and CFO for a 118-bed hospital in Arkansas; CFO for a Baptist Health Care System hospital in Beaumont, Texas; and CFO for several Health Management Associates hospitals in Arkansas and Texas. HMAoperated Fishermen's for 25 years until the board hired Quorum Health Resources of Tennessee to manage it July. Schimming earned a bachelor's degree in accounting from Jacksonville (Fla.) University and a master's in health-care administration from Trinity University in Texas. The search for a new chief executive officer to replace Kim Bassett, who held that post with HMAbefore leaving when the transition to Quorum took effect, continues. The post is being advertised and the board expects it to be filled by the end of the year, says Patrick Foley, a Fishermen's spokesman. Leading the medical center in the interim is Quorum executive Scott Landrum, whose title is chief transition officer.Schimming brings lots of experienceMARATHON SCHIMMING The Ocean Beach Club Resort at 351 E.Ocean Drive in Key Colony Beach has new owners.Jack Glunz,owner of a Chicago beer distributorship and a time-share owner at the Ocean Beach Club the past 23 years,has taken over management from longtime owner Sue Demaras.At a ribbon cutting ceremony on Oct.11,Glunz said his family will run the property as a boutique hotel following upgrades.It has 38 rooms.NEW MANAGEMENT Credit problems can be avoidedRecognizing the American Bankers Association's National Get Smart About Credit Day, which is on Thursday, Community Bank of Florida, with branches in Tavernier and Key Largo, has issued the following tips to help keep consumers from drowning in credit bills.Pay at least the minimum due each month. This will help you avoid late fees and a rising interest rate. To pay off your balance quicker, pay more than the minimum due. If you are unable to make the minimum payment, let your credit card company know so it can work with you to create a manageable payment plan.Be wary of anyone who claims he or she can fix your credit report. No one can legally remove negative information from your credit history that is accurate. The only thing that can fix a credit report is time and a positive payment history.Read the fine print on credit card applications. An application is a contract, so read it carefully before signing. Credit card companies are very competitive so interest rates, credit limits, grace periods, annual fees, terms and conditions may vary.Don't feel pressure to get a credit card. If you don't want one, simply decline the offer. The Card Act 2009 introduced new regulation that says consumers ages 18 to 21 cannot be solicited for credit. And if you no longer want to receive prescreened offers, opt out by calling (888) 567-8688 or visit www.optoutprescreen .com.Don't ignore the warning signs of credit trouble. If you pay only the minimum balance, pay late, use cash advances to fund daily living or transfer a lot of balances, you might be in the credit danger zone. Talk to a financial counseling organization.Don't share your credit card number. Never give out credit card or personal information if you have not initiated the transaction. Be aware of identity theft and phishing scams that ask for credit card numbers. If you suspect your identity has been compromised, file a complaint with the Federal Trade Commission by calling (877) 438-4338 or visit www.ftc.gov/idtheft .These helpful tips can keep trouble minimalCONSUMERS BUSINESS BRIEFSSotheby's adds another agentLaura Lynne Kennedy has joined Ocean Sotheby's International Realty in Islamorada.

Out on Carysfort, Molasses, Hens and Chickens reefs off the Keys, the boulder, brain and fire corals are starting to rebound from the latest bout of bleaching after a summer simmering in an Atlantic once again running hotter than normal. Damage this time appears moderate particularly in comparison to the massive die-off triggered last year by the opposite extreme, a brutal cold snap. The repeated temperature stresses make corals vulnerable to an ever-widening spectrum of diseases black band, yellow band, red blotch and an assortment of white maladies that come in band, pox and plague.And if corals manage to endure all that, there is the looming specter of climate change brewing up an increasingly acidic ocean scientists expect will eventually make it difficult for survivors to simply grow their skeletons.So it's hard to overstate the challenges facing the U.S. Coral Reef Task Force, a multi-agency, multi-state group that meets this week in Fort Lauderdale to ponder what, if anything, can be done to protect some of the most important and threatened habitats in the world. Reefs off Miami and the Keys may still seem vibrant to tourists, but they pale in comparison to what they were only decades ago. From Florida to Australia, corals have been in seemingly inexorable decline.One of the few glimmers of hope may be the emerging effort to promote reef resilience. Aprogram being pondered in the Florida Keys National Marine Sanctuary is shifting the focus from simply counting sick or dying corals to doing more to save them. "What we're trying to do is help nature help itself," said Chris Bergh, director of coastal and marine resilience for The Nature Conservancy, which coordinates a program that includes federal, state and university researchers as well as environmental and diver groups "What we can do is give coral reefs more time by trying to reduce the stresses we can control. We need to do this as quickly as possible.""Resilience" has become the buzzword for what are really a series of broad, ambitious steps many scientists consider critical to buffering the daunting "multiple stressors''afflicting corals. One primary aim is to reduce the long list of direct human impacts leaky sewage and septic systems in the Keys, errant anchors, snagged fishing lines and lobster traps, and clumsy or clueless divers through tougher regulations and expanded protected areas. Another is to somehow make corals themselves tougher, drawing on the promising progress of cultivating coral. The hope is to boost the sagging reproductive rates of corals and selectively breeding them for hardier strains. Two years ago, "farmraised" staghorn coral now federally designated as threatened that were transplanted to Molasses Reef, a signature snorkeling destination in John Pennekamp Coral Reef State Park, were observed for the first time engaging in the annual coral spawn, spewing small white sacs called gametes that grow baby corals.Not even the most optimistic supporters envision nursery coral alone restoring reefs to their lush past. Like giant redwood forests, it can take centuries for dense, highrelief reefs to form, new corals growing atop bones of the old.But if resilience efforts can at least slow the decline, it might give corals a shot at naturally adapting to a changing climate and worsening water quality. That, at least, is the theory and hope. "There are challenges to being sort of like a Johnny Appleseed, if you will," said Scott Donahue, the sanctuary's chief scientist. "It sort of boils down to this: If we do nothing, we will definitely fail."How many threats can corals be made resilient to? Abnormally warm seas have triggered persistent bleaching events, prompting stressedout corals to shed a symbiotic algae that gives them color and life.But the frigid weather of January 2010 left 20 times more coral carnage behind than the five previous steamy summers combined "undoubtedly the single worst event on record for Florida corals," said Diego Lirman, a professor of marine biology at the University of Miami who led a study on the chilling effects. The study, published in August, found overall death rates of 11.5 percent, with losses for some species hitting 40 percent. The worst damage also came in shallower zones that had been largely unfazed during warmwater bleaching events.Beyond the scientific questions, mounting an effective resilience program faces political and economic hurdles.Monroe County is about two-thirds through a statemandated $900 million upgrade of its sewage system, but faces a $300 million gap to complete the work. More state and federal support is uncertain and the deadline, already pushed back once to December 2015, may be moved again. Still, even under the myriad stresses, some corals continue growing. Ilsa Kuffner, a research ecologist with the U.S. Geological Survey whose work focuses on coral degradation, is two years into a project measuring the accretion rates of massive starlet coral, a species that shown more resilience than many others, at four sites from Miami to the Dry Tortugas.Preliminary results show some growth at each spot. The corals in the Tortugas, 70 miles west of Key West and buffered from human impacts, are gaining girth 30 percent faster.More study is needed, she said, but it certainly suggests there are benefits to cleaning up local problems.U.S.task force looks at how to strengthen themBy CURTIS MORGANcmorgan@MiamiHerald.com KeysNet.com Keynoter 6A Wednesday,October 19,2011 MEET THE FREE* INSTANT ISSUE DEBIT CARDOR AS OTHER BANKS CALL IT, THE SORRY-BUT-WELL-HAVE-TO-CHARGE-YOU-FIVEBUCKS-A-MONTH-AND-YOULL-HAVE-TO-WAIT-THREEPAINFULLY-LONG-WEEKS-TO-GET-IT-EVEN-THOUGHYOU-COULD-REALLY-USE-IT-TODAY-DEBIT-CARD.

For months, the gumbolimbo whitefly (also called the Rugose spiraling whitefly) has proliferated through Monroe County. It lays eggs on the underside of plant leaves and attacks numerous plants in addition to gumbolimbo trees. The result is a sooty mold-known as honeydew on outdoor walkways or a filmy white smear on car windows. The free workshops are geared toward pest-control operators and commercial landscapers but open to anyone.

The Conchs who shot 308, four strokes better than Gulliver Prep advanced to the Region 8-1Atourney next Tuesday at Don Shula's Golf Course in Miami Lakes. Ransom Everglades, by finishing third with a 327, will also play in the regional. Marathon High shot 388, finished sixth and will not advance. "It rained throughout the 18 holes, but the boys hung tough," said Key West coach George Twyman. "People don't realize how tough it is to play in the rain." Sophomore Evan DeRoche was the tournament's medalist, shooting a one-under-par 70. "He was hitting the ball the best I've seen in a long time," Twyman said. Joseph Arazi followed DeRoche with a 73 and was second overall. Nick Patrocky shot 80 and A.J. Davila 85. "I expected us to do well," Twyman said. "All the practice and hard work we've done has paid off." He said he also expects the team to fare well at the regional tournament, with American Heritage and Archbishop McCarthy the most formidable opponents. Marathon coach Kevin Freeman said the Dolphins, who got in four holes before the hard rain, cut 36 strokes from what they shot at last year's district tourney. "We started the season on a positive note and we ended on one," he said. "We're still going in the right direction." The Dolphins'No. 1 player, Kyle Pierce, shot 89 and missed advancing to the regionals as an individual by three strokes. Next for Marathon were Sean Roussin (97), Kody Daniels (99) and Jake Logan (103). Afifth player, Kevin McKeon, shot 106. Freeman had nice things to say about DeRoche, one of the top young players in Florida. "That's awesome," he said of the 70. "He's incredible.

The Key West football team was fired up. Tommy Ruffennach had just caught a 39-yard touchdown pass and the Conchs, who had trailed American High, 13-0, were down, 13-12. Go for the two-point conversion and the victory? Or kick for the tie and maybe go to overtime? Excitement was in the muggy 10 o'clock air. "Where's the band when you need them?" asked a Conch player on the sidelines, unaware that band members had left after halftime because they had to catch a bus at 5:30 in the morning for a trip to a competition in Vero Beach. The Conchs lined up for the attempt, but before they could get a play off, a penalty on American moved the ball to the 1-yard line, tantalizingly close. The Conchs huddled again. Quarterback Donald Roberts took the snap, rolled to his right and launched a pass intended for Anthony Rice, a tall figure in a dark end zone. The ball fell to the grass untouched. A13-12 loss was imminent and dejection replaced elation at Tommy Roberts Memorial Stadium. On Sunday, after watching the game film, coach Jerry Hughes explained his decision. "We didn't kick because we don't have the beef to go 10 yards in overtime," he said, alluding to the overtime format where teams alternate opportunities from the opponent's 10-yard line. Hughes also said the Conchs had a lightweight inexperienced player at left guard, and American "was penetrating into the backfield all night." As for the pass that was called, he said, "Anthony ran upfield instead of for the pylon and a defender was in the throwing lane. Maybe if Donald had seen him sooner..." The loss was the second in a row for Key West, which dropped to 3-3. The defense was stellarCoach Hughes says choice wasn't toughBy DICK WAGNERKeynoter ContributorSee Key West,2BChanging temps, changing fishingThe tropical system we experienced over the weekend, coupled with the cold front coming at the end of the week, will signal a transition in the fishing. The fish really get a move on when the water temperatures slip a few degrees. The shallower reef areas, in 50 to 70 feet, really come to life this time of year. There had already been a few kingfish around, but we will now see a big push of Spanish and king mackerel. Yellowtail and mutton snapper will be there, as well, fattening up for the winter, and there will be an uptick in the number of grouper. The ballyhoo will exit the bay and go to the ocean, which will help spur the mackerel bite as well as the beginning of sailfish action for the season. Pay attention to frigate birds working the reef line and you could be rewarded with these pelagics, as well as the dolphin and cobia that will be making their southward trek. Another fish pushing out of the bay onto the patch reefs and channel humps is the hogfish. These are quite sensitive to the quickly cooling bay waters and will hustle out ready to eat. Your bait of choice is shrimp presented directly on the bottom around your favorite coral patch. Remaining in the bay are the mangrove snapper, and that bite remains consistent. Joining them is the beginning of the Spanish mackerel run for the season.The week's bestFrank and Linda, from Daytona, spent part of their honeymoon fishing with Capt. T.J.

The Lions led 8-0 less than a minute into the contest Marathon's homecoming game after a 9yard touchdown pass and two-point conversion. "That's a heck of a football team and we knew that going in. We just wanted to hang with them and play hard and we did that. We played hard to the bitter end," coach Lance Martin said, referring to the game's last play, a kickoff return almost broken for a touchdown by senior Trevelle Beckford. "We almost broke it for a touchdown. Obviously, our kids were still blocking," he said. Martin added that several injuries made it even more difficult to compete with the undefeated Lions (6-0). "Injuries started to take effect there. We had two starters not going into the game and had three more going down, so we were basically trying to recreate the wheel with some of our people that were going in the game," he said. But Martin had high praise for the young players who stepped up against a difficult opponent.

The Cougars of Canterbury School clawed the Eagles, 56-6, in the sixman game. "They showed us up, bigtime," said Eagle head coach Bruce Gendron. "It was ugly all the way around. We didn't come out ready to play." The Eagles managed just 50 offensive yards in a wideopen variation of the game where 50 scoring points is common. "We had more yards in penalties than we did on offense," Gendron sighed. Island Christian (3-3) avoided a shutout with a fourth-quarter defensive touchdown. Lineman Phil Resillez stripped the ball from a Cougar runner and teammate Dylan Ayres recovered in the Cougar end zone. "We'd scouted Canterbury and had practiced against every play they were going to run," Gendron said. "We just didn't stop them. They were fast but no bigger than we are."

"With all due respect to our other opponents, Coral Springs Charter is the best team we'll play all year," Holly said Tuesday. "It's going to be a great test for us in front of our fans on homecoming." The Canes (3-3) used a bye week to heal some nagging injuries and sharpen skills, but this week's wet weather has not helped. Monday's practice was cancelled. "We need to get on the field to work," Holly said.

"Everyone is improving that's why we're placing as well as we are," coach Terence White said, reflecting on Friday's Varela High Invitational at Larry and Penny Thompson Park in Miami. In that 28-team event, the Conch boys, with an average time of 19 minutes, 7 seconds in the 3.1mile run, finished fifth; the girls, with an average time of 23:41, were seventh. Senior Ryan Wagner continued to solidify his spot as the Conchs'No. 1 boy runner, finishing 14th in 18:02. The time of winning runner Charles Anderson, of John I. Leonard High, was 16:49. Next for Key West was sophomore Julian Ramirez, who ran a personal-best 19:11, finishing 36th, a second ahead of fellow sophomore Tony Guieb. Senior Aeschton Tomita, about two minutes off what he did last year before injuring his knee, was 43rd in 19:25. "Aeschton still has a lot of upside and is going in the right direction," White said. "He's dealing better with the discomfort in his knee." Junior Davis Dalton was 63rd in 19:47, nipping sophomore teammate Tyler Hancock (19:48). Both times were personal bests. Junior Aaron Ansel (a personal-best 20:09) and senior Bobby Finigan (21:37) also ran for the Conchs. The girls team was led by sophomore Tristin Milliken, who was 26th in a personal-best 22:37 2:23 behind winner Maria Balcazar of Carrollton. Milliken was followed by junior Liz Czerwinski (29th in a season-best 22:51; senior Marlee Gil (36th in a personal-best 23:08); junior Erin Czerwinski (57th in a season-best 23:55); and senior Morgan Nelson (101st in a season-best 25:55.

But with the well-documented decline of Florida's reefs, places like Pulley Ridge around 250 deep may serve as sources of larvae that can help sustain the Florida Keys'reef ecosystem and the tourism economy dependent on it, say researchers at the University of Miami's Rosenstiel School of Marine & Atmospheric Science. With that in mind, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration is initiating a five-year $5 million project focused on investigating the role the reefs of Pulley Ridge and the northern Gulf of Mexico may play in replenishing key fish species and other organisms in the downstream reefs of the Florida Keys and Dry Tortugas. Teams from NOAA's National Centers for Coastal Ocean Science's Center for Sponsored Coastal Ocean Research will use technical diving, remotely operated vehicles and advanced modeling and visualization tools in their work. The project, led by University of Miami Professor Robert Cowen, represents a unique collaboration of more than 30 scientists at 10 different universities pooling their expertise through NOAA's Cooperative Institute for Marine and Atmospheric Studies in coordination with the Cooperative Institute for Ocean Exploration Research and Technology. "There is limited information on the ecological role mesophotic (mid-light) coral ecosystems may play," Cowen said. "This project brings together several disciplines to conduct studies on the physical characteristics of the region, the biology and ecology of the resident species, and the valuation of ecosystem services that Pulley Ridge provides. "Our intent is to create a comprehensive understanding that can support a variety of decision support tools, including scenario-building options, to facilitate comprehensive resource planning in the eastern Gulf of Mexico." The project will be guided throughout by a board consisting of senior federal, state and regional resource managers.NOAA, UM collaborate on researchMARINE SCIENCE This shows the health of habitat at the deep-water Pulley Ridge,which will be studied to determine how it helps replenish fish and other marine life in downstream reefs.Luau benefits free clinicAbeach luau is planned for the Islamorada Hampton Inn and Suites' beach at mile marker 80 oceanside on Friday to benefit the Good Health Clinic, a free clinic in Tavernier.
