The district has for several years been spending down sizable reserves and is reaching a point where its in danger of using them up completely. According to Comptroller William Southcott, the district in fiscal year 2011-12 is expected to generate $9.7 million in revenue, but its budgeted expenditures are $11.9 million. That means it will use $2.2 million in reserves, drawing the beginning balance of $5.1 million down to $2.9 million. The board charged Director Michael Doyle, who replaced longtime administrator Ed Fussell in July, with creating a plan for the district moving forward. Doyle told the board this summer hed aim to spend $500,000 less than the approved budget in 2011-12 to build up reserves. The temptation with all this was to say we need to do this all this week. If it saves money, lets do it now, Doyle said Monday. We need to space these things out a bit, so [Deputy Director Andrea Leal] has been helping me get these to a more practical level of accomplishments.Following are other highlights from the three-year plan the board approved unanimously after several suggestions: Disease reduction focusing on dengue fever and experimenting with new adulticide and larvicide treatments. Reducing average bite and trap counts in July, August and September by 20 percent over 2006-11 average. Make the district organizational structure more efficient.

Astate mandate to meet class-size limits will force the Monroe County School District to consider drastic cost-cutting measures for the remainder of the 2011-12 school year, Superintendent Jesus Jara says. Amendment 8 to the Florida Constitution caps class sizes at 18 for students in kindergarten through third grade, 22 students in fourth through eighth grade, and 25 in high school. The district spent $1 million to meet that requirement last year, and was scheduled to approve another $500,000 for this year. Jara said that moneywhich will come from reserves-would pay for six new teachers at Key Largo, Sugarloaf, Plantation and Horace OBryant Middle schools, as well as some supplements for Marathon High teachers taking on an additional class. It is in the constitution of the state of Florida. You try to do what you can to meet the letter of the law, Jara told the Keynoter. There has to be some flexibility. Its going to get tougher in years to come. Jara said the mandate is depleting district reserves to dangerously low levels, from 4.29 percent ($3.21 million) to and estimated 3.59 percent ($2.67 million) at years end. Were at 3.59 [percent] right now and its Oct. 25. If we get below 3 percent [I] write a letter to the [Florida Commissioner of Education Gerard Robinson], and if we get below 2 percent, that means we then notify the board and the commissioner. Within 14 days, if we dont have a plan, we then have an appointed board that will handle the operations of the school district. Last year, former Superintendent Joseph Burke told board members the district faced $1.06 million in penalties for not meeting class-size requirements. Many districts didnt and werent fined, but board Chairman John Dick said they received less funding this year. We get money from the Florida Education Finance Program every year. Thats what they did for every district that had penalties. They just didnt give it to them this year. So thank God we did stay with it, and thats why we did stay with it again, he said. But Jara said doing so is putting the district in pretty dire straits and that hell be investigating any way to save money in the current fiscal year. That includes hiring restrictions and possibly canceling summer school in 2012. We may not offer summer school. Maybe online, but online we have to pay for the licenses to do the courses, Jara said. Were looking at everything we can cut right now.

The alleged victim, who is from Key Largo, was in his Honda Civic with his girlfriend and his one-year-old son going northbound at mile marker 99 at 7:30 p.m. He told Deputy Vaughn OKeefe a mini-van pulled out in front of him causing him to stop suddenly, and causing his car to stall. The suspect, 29 year old Derrick Bosworth of Key Largo, was behind the Honda in his Ford F150 truck. He had a boat in the back of the truck.Bosworth began yelling at the victim. The victim in turn held his middle finger up at Bosworth.At that point, the victim said Bosworth pulled up beside his car and held up a handgun, pointing it at him and at his family. The victim called the Sheriffs Office, giving Sheriffs dispatchers a description of Bosworth and the truck. Deputy Vaughn OKeefe pulled Bosworth over at mile marker 101. The victim stopped to give a statement and to positively identify Bosworth. A fully loaded Taurus revolver was found in Bosworths truck. Bosworth was arrested, and taken to jail. they check the FKCC dorms.Captain Morgan was returned to Walgreens [on North Roosevelt Boulevard], none the worse for wear, Herrin said. The statue a grinning Capt. Morgan attired in a red frock coat and tricorn hat, his left leg resting on a rum barrel was discovered missing early Oct. 18. He was last seen late the night before. Capt. Morgans Rum, a division of the internatioanl Diageo liquor company, is the main sponsor of the main Fantasy Fest Parade on Friday. Several years ago the exact year is difficult to pin down a more sizable business statue disappeared and later resurfaced. Asculpture of a leering Mickey Ratz was lifted off the rooftop of a dockside bar at Holiday Isle Resort and Marina in Islamorada.

I dont remember how that came about.Roth said details of the Mickey Ratz caper may be lost to the fog of time, but it probably was likely a college prank very similar to the Captain Morgan case.Rum character returned homeFrom Capt.Morgan,1A Monday hell eliminate positions in the coming months, primarily by using attrition.

Bug board looks for more cutsFrom Mosquito,1AEconomy hurting court budgetsCourt officials in Monroe County are watching their budgets to the penny during a worrisome fiscal year. It all depends on revenue coming in, Monroe County Clerk of the Courts Danny Kolhage said Tuesday. Under the current situation, if the funds do not come in, there could be a cash-flow problem, Kolhage said. Current funding rules require Kolhage to essentially pay his offices $3.3 million annual budget through locally generated fees for legal filings, everything from lawsuits to marriage licenses. That money goes into a state fund with money parceled out to court clerks in Floridas 67 counties. Right now were in a holding pattern, Kolhage said. Were keeping everything going and trying to maintain the service we already have. If revenues fail to match expenses, the clerks office could be required to further reduce staff or close one of its offices mostly likely in Marathon, the least busy in the 127-mile-long Monroe County. We have a geographic situation unique in Florida, Kolhage said earlier this year. Nobody wants to see our residents having to drive 100 miles round trip to have access to the courts. So far this year, revenues had essentially been holding steady but there is little margin for shortfalls, he said. The statewide judicial system separate from the clerksfunding but related this month obtained an emergency $45.6-million loan so it can keep operating through March. Three years ago, the Florida Legislature created two separate trust funds to finance the legal system and the clerks offices. Instead of receiving money from the states general budget, the clerks and judicial system would be funded by various filing fees collected by the courts. The collapse of Floridas real-estate market and the scandal over untold numbers of questionable foreclosure actions have threatened the courtsmain funding sources. The courtsfund was anticipated to collect $432 million statewide this fiscal year, according to the Associated Press. But an expected increase in foreclosure filings has fallen far below estimates, potentially creating a shortfall of nearly $160 million. We told them these fees were not a stable funding source but the Legislature did it anyway, Monroe County Judge Wayne Miller, president of the County Court Judges Conference of Florida, said earlier this year. The system includes salaries and benefits for staff including judges, court reporters, mediators and administrators, plus some operational expenses. In approving this months loan to the courts, Scotts office indicated it expects the $45.6 million to be repaid to the general fund by June 30. How that would happen remains unanswered. The way these trust funds have been set up by the state, I think this year is going to be typical, Kolhage said. This probably is going to happen every year, in my opinion.Revenue reduction could result in layoffsCOURTSBy KEVIN WADLOWSenior Staff Writer email@example.com Search underway forcollege presidentThe board of the Florida Keys Community College selected Key West attorney Ed Scales to be its chairmanelect during its Monday meeting Scales was appointed by Gov. Rick Scott on Oct. 14 to another four-year term on the board. His first appointment was in 2006, and he served as chairman from 2007 to 2009. His colleagues on the board elected him as chairman again at their meeting on Monday. Scott this month also replaced out-going Chairman Spencer Slate, a Key Largo scuba dive shop owner, with Upper Keys restaurateur Bobby Stoky. Scott also appointed Realtor Brian Schmitt of Marathon, who previously served on the board, to replace Kim Bassett. One of the first main missions of the five-member panel will be to search for a new college president to take over for Larry Tyree, who is scheduled to step down on June 30, 2012. To help get the search process started, Tyree put together a document that includes a presidential profile, timeline, search committee composition and budget. Tyrees suggested process, culminating in interviews of three to five candidates by April, has a tentative budget of $21,190. Apaid consultant oversaw the process that saw Tyrees predecessor, Jill Landesberg-Boyle, hired, which cost more than $50,000. Before he voluntarily gave up half his salary to help mitigate a summer budget shortfall, Tyree earned $18,000 per month including a $15,000 salary, $3,000 housing stipend, and $400 vehicle and $130 cellphone allowances. Tyree came on board Nov. 16, 2009, and in March 2010 agreed to a contract extension good through June.

Andy Newman said that this years Fantasy Fest looked especially good in terms of tourism. Most accommodations in Key West have been sold out, Newman said, with bookings almost at prerecession levels. He noted that the Fantasy Fest parade has never been rained out. While officials are monitoring the issue very closely, the latest forecasts from the National Hurricane Center in Miami were encouraging, Newman said.The important thing is to continue with your plans and continue to pay attention to the storms progress, he advised visitors. The National Hurricane Center predicted Rina would be a Category 3 major hurricane, with winds of 100 knots (115 mph) yesterday evening, and reach top strength this morning, with gusts as high as 150 mph. Mexicos Yucatan Peninsula had hurricane warnings posted yesterday. High clouds streaming away from Rina were visible over the Keys late Monday night. This week is the sixth anniversary of Hurricane Wilma, which became a major hurricane off the Yucatan, like Rina, then swept northeastward along a cold front to southwest Florida. On Monday, Oct. 24, 2005, Wilma flooded streets, homes and businesses throughout the Keys and officials postponed Fantasy Fest until December. Meanwhile, another area of storms in the southwest Caribbean is also being watched by the hurricane center, but forecasters gave that disturbance a low chance of developing further.System formed SundayThe storm formed on Sunday, and as the system organized further, NHC forecasters labeled it Tropical Storm Rina.By Monday afternoon, an Air Force Reserve reconnaissance aircraft had found much higher winds in the storm, and a bulletin from the hurricane center said Rina had rapidly strengthened into a hurricane with 65-knot (75 mph) sustained winds. Rina is the sixth hurricane of the season and the 17th named storm, making this year one of the most active in the Atlantic basin. In May, the national Climate Prediction Center said an above-normal season was likely.National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration scientists said the total storm energy this season could be twice that of a typical season. When the total energy is 165 percent of a typical season, scientists call it an exceptionally active, or hyperactive season. With 17 named storms, this season has seen just one storm fewer than the maximum number NOAApredicted in May. The agencys long-range prediction said there was a 70 percent chance that 12 to 18 named storms would form this year.

EDITORIALSome good news on jobless frontLETTERS TO THE EDITORBank of Americas announcement that it will impose a $5 monthly surcharge on account holders who use debit cards has sparked both consumer protests and political uproar. The financial giant is trying to justify the move as a consequence of new federal regulations limiting the amount banks can charge for debit transactions, casting the entire episode as an epic battle between free markets and government price-fixing. Its rationalization might play inside the Beltway, but it completely misses the point. In order to function fairly and effectively, markets require both competition and transparency. Before swipe-fee reform, however, the debit-card market had neither. Instead of competing on the basis of price, the two dominant players, Visa and MasterCard and their banks, each effectively fixed the fees banks receive on debit transactions. Rather than charging these fees openly, they hid them by requiring merchants to pay a swipe fee on every transaction. For years, this opaque, noncompetitive market created a cozy profit center for the banking industry. A2010 study conducted by the Federal Reserve found the actual cost to banks for processing a debit card transaction was approximately 4 cents. Yet until the new regulations took effect October 1, banks were charging merchants an average 44 cents per transaction a hidden tax that generated $20 billion a year for the banks but cost the average household more than $175. Between 2001 and 2010, the annual cost to merchants and their customers for debit and credit card swipe fees combined more than tripled, to an estimated $50 billion. The charge that the new rules established by the Federal Reserve amount to government price-fixing simply doesnt pass the laugh test. Notwithstanding the protests of the banks, the new regulations do not fix debit card swipe fees. They merely establish an upper limit of 21 cents on the typical transaction. In other words, under these draconian new rules, banks will still be able to charge a 425 percent markup on debit card transactions. Merchants who are required to collect these fees, on the other hand, earn an average net profit of about 2 percent. The principle at stake is critical because the fight over debit card swipe fees is likely just the opening salvo in a long-running debate about how open and transparent banks should be about fees. Next on the agenda will be reform of credit card fees, which are even more excessive than debit fees and just as obscure. In 2010, the banking industry raked in about $30 billion in swipe fees on credit card transactions over and above profits on late fees, annual fees, over-the-limit fees and interest. Not only do banks require merchants to collect fees averaging 2 percent to 3 percent of each credit card transaction, until swipe fee reform passed they effectively prevented retailers from offering a discount to customers who paid with cash. Obviously, the banksgoal is not a fair, market-driven return on the cost of processing a card transaction. Instead, banks want to keep their fees hidden in order to pad their profits. If banks can continue to conceal their fees on debit and credit card transactions, imagine how easy it will be for them to electronically bury fees in the tap and go future when more consumer purchases migrate to mobile devices. As long as banks are permitted to hide fees and avoid competition, consumers will continue to be gouged by higher prices for every product they purchase. Perhaps on some level, Bank of America is to be commended for finally coming clean about at least one of its fees. Lets see if other banks compete to offer lower fees by scaling their profit margin on debit transactions from 425 percent to 300 percent or even 200 percent or whether the entire industry continues to seek political cover.

This could be accomplished by installing cantilevered beams extending 10 feet off each side of the bridge and the amusement stands on same. The concessionaires would be given a 10-year (as a time share) contract when they developed the spot. Thomas Gilmartin MarathonVolunteers needed for ombudsman programFloridas 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 Residents Rights Month events, or inquire about becoming a volunteer ombudsman. Your assistance and attention helps ensure that the voices of long-termcare 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 TallahasseeStrong tourism rebound powers Keys to states best jobs pictureMonroe Countys unemployment rate fell to 6.7 percent in September lowest in the state. It stood at 8.6 percent one year ago. Thats the good news. The bad news: Floridas jobless rate last month was 10.6 percent, which is still above the national average 9.1 percent in September. Gov. Rick Scott can legitimately brag about a gain of 110,300 private sector jobs since January. From that number, however, the states labor statisticians had to subtract 17,900 public service jobs cut since the beginning of the year. Many of those jobs were once held by teachers, police and firefighters, along with office workers, even custodians, caught up in public sector downsizing. State and local governments are beginning to play catch up with the private sector in shedding workers. That sets up a cruel irony in the debate over jobs, jobs, jobs government entities are cutting jobs at the same time politicians in both parties campaign on the need to create more jobs. But not all jobs are created equal. Adeeper look into Floridas private-sector job growth this year shows most of the gains come in tourism and health-related fields. Little surprise there. Floridas biggest employment engine is still tourism. And, as we age, the Sunshine State population will need more health care. But many jobs in those employment sectors are temporary, some are part-time, and many come without benefits. Monroe Countys low unemployment rate for September is directly tied to health of the Keys tourism-based economy. This summer, hotel occupancy levels and passenger counts at Key West Airport all showed year-over-year gains, some as much as 20-23 percent ahead versus the same month last year. That triggered earlier hiring cycles as hotels, bars, restaurants and others gear up for the traditional start of season. Septembers unemployment numbers dont spell a return to the good oldays when the Keys reported jobless numbers down in the 3.5 to 3.7 percent range. But were certainly better off than many other tourist markets in Florida where the unemployment numbers are still double-digit and no relief yet in sight. In the meantime, thank the visitors who are coming to spend their money in the Keys, thus helping oil the wheels that keep our economy running.OPINIONHidden charges continue to harass consumers Banks should compete openly,fairly on price By MALLORY DUNCAN U.S. spill response likely limited, experts sayAs exploratory oil drilling is set to begin in December off the coast of Cuba, the U.S. government acknowledged Tuesday that because of chilly diplomatic relations, it could have a limited ability to control the response to an oil spill there, let alone one the magnitude of last years Deepwater Horizon disaster in the Gulf of Mexico. U.S. regulators said their main leverage to encourage safe drilling practices in Cuba is with the company doing the first round of offshore exploration in the communist country: Spains Repsol oil company. Because of its other extensive U.S. interests, Repsol is likely to exercise caution in a prospect less than 100 miles from the Florida coastline, said Michael Bromwich, director of the agency that oversees offshore drilling here, the Bureau of Safety and Environmental Enforcement.Repsols wide U.S. interests have likely played a significant role in why theyve been as cooperative as they have, Bromwich told the Senate Energy and Natural Resources Committee Tuesday morning.Bromwich also said the company has pledged publicly that it will adhere to U.S. regulations and the highest industry standards while working in Cuban waters. The company has given U.S. regulators permission to inspect the rig it will be using, Bromwich said, although that inspection will have to be done before it enters Cuban waters. The agency, along with the U.S. Coast Guard, has already participated in a mock response drill at Repsols facilities in Trinidad.Regulators have made it clear they expect the company to adhere to industry and international environmental, health, and safety standards and to have adequate prevention, mitigation, and remediation systems in place in the event of an incident, Bromwich said.But others at the hearing warned that spilled oil knows no political boundaries or embargoes. And while Congress is most curious about Cuba because of the limited information available about the countrys plans, other Caribbean and Gulf of Mexico neighbors are also exploring for oil near U.S. waters. They include Jamaica, the Bahamas and ongoing operations in Mexico.If we just kind of close our eyes to it here, and say its not going to happen here,were fooling ourselves, said Sen. Lisa Murkowski, R-Alaska, the top Republican on the Senate Energy and Natural Resources Committee. If there is a spill, the impact doesnt necessarily stop at our borders.How U.S. companies are allowed to respond to any potential spill in Cuban waters could be vital in protecting Florida and the Bahamas, said Paul Schuler, the president and CEO of Clean Caribbean and Americas, a Fort Lauderdalebased oil-spill response consortium funded by oil companies. He called for a loosening up of the red tape required for U.S.-based companies to have any sort of involvement with the communist government.Schulers organization, which responded to the 2010 BPspill in the Gulf of Mexico, has been involved in Cuba since 2001, when Repsol and Brazils Petrobras were first doing work there. CCAapplied for and received licenses from the Treasury and Commerce departments to travel to and export equipment to Cuba. Theyve been to Cuba recently to work with Repsol and Petronas, the state-owned Malaysian oil company also exploring in Cuba, Schuler said.One of the foremost experts in Cubas oil drilling capabilities, Jorge Pion, warned the committee the U.S. shouldnt bully Repsol, which is not the only oil company to explore in Cuban waters. Pion pointed out that the U.S. doesnt have the leverage with stateowned entities like Petronas that it does with publically traded companies with U.S. interests, such as Repsol.Mexico, Cuba and the Bahamas are in the process of implementing the most advanced and up to date drilling regulations and standards, said Pion, a former Amoco executive and a visiting research fellow with Florida International Universitys Latin American and Caribbean Centers Cuban Research Institute. But do they have the resources, capabilities, assets, personnel, and experience to enforce them? Can these countriesregulatory agencies appropriately police the operators? These are issues for debate.Some Republican lawmakers have complained in the past about Cubas ability to drill so close to the U.S. coastline even as a 125-mile buffer zone remains in place in U.S. waters off of most of Floridas coast. Tuesday, those questions came up again.Why not drill there? asked Sen. Bob Corker, RTenn. Bromwich told Corker the agency would be going forward with lease sales in the western Gulf of Mexico in December, and in the central Gulf in May or June. And lawmakers from both parties remain concerned about Repsols involvement in Cuba. In September, 34 lawmakers led by U.S. Rep. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen, RMiami, asked Repsol in a letter to keep out of Cuban waters, saying the firms pending offshore drilling plans would support the Castro regime.By ERIKA BOLSTADebolstad@MiamiHerald.comENERGY
With all the recent attention on food safety, a study just released points to some safety tips for shoppers who use reusable grocery bags. While those recycled bags may be good for the environment, they could be making you sick, researchers warn. The study, published in the latest issue of the International Association for Food Protections Food Protection Trends magazine, tested 87 reusable bags obtained at random from shoppers in California and Arizona. Charles Gerba, a professor at the University of Arizona who conducted the study, found that 8 percent contained E. coli, among other harmful food-borne pathogens. Putting a reusable bag through the wash can eliminate almost 100 percent of the bacteria. But the study found that only 3 percent of shoppers surveyed had washed their reusable bags between uses. In Maryland, Montgomery County officials plan to educate the public about a new tax on disposable grocery bags by providing information to residents. Bonnie Ayers, a representative of Montgomery County, said the county will hand out 30,000 reusable bags to residents by Jan. 1 and provide information on its website about the potential for bacterial growth in the bags. I dont think that people always think of cleaning their bags, but its like any other item its going to get soiled or dirty, Ayers said. If you dont want to wash them, just wipe them out. Interviews with shoppers strolling through Maryland grocery stores last week found that not everyone takes steps to decontaminate the reusable bags. Shopping at the Whole Foods Market in Silver Spring, Lauren Simms of Takoma Park said that even if she knew bacteria could be growing, she wouldnt wash her reusable bags. Im pretty low-maintenance, said Simms, who puts only prewrapped items in her bags. Other precautions that can eliminate health risks include packing raw meats separately from fruits and vegetables to avoid crosscontamination and not storing reusable bags in the trunk of the car where high temperatures increase bacteria growth. The bag study found that when reusable bags contaminated with meat juice were left in a trunk for two hours, the number of bacteria grew tenfold. Some local residents said they separate meat from other groceries when using reusable bags. I dont like my meat to touch my other stuff, Robyn Nguyen, of Silver Spring, said while shopping at Whole Foods in Silver Spring. Nguyen said that bacteria are a concern. She will not pack her meat in reusable bags with her other food; she packs it separately in plastic grocery bags. Kay Why, of Silver Spring, said that although she buys reusable bags, she doesnt keep them for long. When I feel that its a little gross, I throw them out and buy new, Why said. Instead of throwing them out, Natalie Slater, a spokesperson for Reuse It, a company dedicated to selling reusable items, said shoppers should take the time to wash them. Cleanliness is no excuse for not using disposable bags. Simply throw your bags in with your clothes, Slater said.

The South Florida SunSentinel and Orlando Sentinel reported that nearly $40 million has been paid in incentives to companies that have fallen short of promised job creation by 3,600 jobs. Almost all of the incentive packages were negotiated a few years ago, when Charlie Crist was governor. On Monday, the papers reported that DEO had released the names of companies that have come up short. Jabil Circuit has created about 2,600 of the 3,260 jobs it was supposed to have created under a 2008 incentive package, and Piper Aircraft has created only 203 of a promised 454 jobs in the time frame in which they were promised, the papers reported. AKaplan University office in Orange County got $2 million to create 750 jobs but only created 500 and a Manatee County company called Mustang Vacuum Systems created 26 jobs instead of the 125 it promised in 2009 to get a $540,000 incentive. One company, Gartner, Inc., was paid $1.2 million from 2009 to 2011 to create 400 jobs, but appears not to have been credited with any, the newspapers reported. The state is re-negotiating terms with the companies. Nearly all of the incentive deals were approved by the previous administration, the papers said, with only one of the companies having dealt with Gov. Rick Scott since his inauguration.State reports hiring shortfall despite helpFLORIDAof 174,200 workers set in July 2008, according to federal statistics. Only the combined category of healthcare and education can boast a better hiring record, with 4 percent more jobs now than in 2007. Healthcare has been the strongest industry for hiring throughout the recovery, thanks largely to South Floridas popularity with retirees and the resilience of medical spending and government healthcare programs. Other sectors have far less cheerful scorecards from the recovery, the Herald reported: Jobs in the financial sector are down 19 percent from pre-recession peaks. Professional services are down 11 percent. The construction industry employs a staggering 47 percent fewer people than it did during the boom times. With Septembers release of unemployment figures, Hendry County in southwest Florida had the distinction of having the worst record, hitting 17.6 percent more than one out of six workers idled. Flagler County reported 14.6 percent unemployment followed by Indian River County at 13.7 percent.State labor officials said 41 of the states 67 counties had double-digit unemployment in September. The counties that had the lowest unemployment numbers all have relatively high proportions of government employment.In the Keys, the largest employer is the Navy, followed by the Monroe County School Board, Monroe County (including the Sheriffs Office), and the public utilities.

Agroup of Hispanic Democrats in Central Florida is chastising the party for what it calls a shortage of Hispanics in the lineup of speakers for the partys state convention, which starts Friday.The Florida Democratic Party convention website lists at least 28 speakers for the three-day event at Disneys Contemporary Resort. Of those listed, five are Hispanic. Four of them are participating in a roundtable discussion Saturday on Hispanic issues, but the group contends that Latinos are underrepresented a charge that the party refutes.In a letter, Carlos Guzman, president of Orlandos Puerto Rican Leadership Council, asked Florida Democratic Chairman Rod Smith to make state Rep. Darren Soto, DOrlando, a keynote speaker. The letter was also signed by 21 other Democrats who are active in grassroots party politics.Soto, who is of Puerto Rican heritage, is the highestranking Hispanic Democratic elected official in Central Florida. He is one of the four Hispanics listed as speakers in the roundtable. Guzman said he wished that Soto and the other Latinos were part of a more mainstream event. We dont want to be all together in a room preaching to the choir, said Guzman, a longtime Democratic activist. Bring us into the mainstream. He noted that Hispanics in Central Florida are a key constituency for Democrats in a 2012 battleground state that is home to 4 million Latinos. But Brannon Jordan, a spokeswoman for the Florida Democratic Party, called the groups complaints baseless. U.S. Labor Secretary Hilda Solis is a keynote speaker, Jordan said, adding that the roundtable in which Soto and others will participate is open to all conventiongoers and is considered a main event. They will be on stage, in front of the delegates, Jordan said. Betsy Franceschini, a Hispanic outreach coordinator for the party, said convention organizers are showcasing Latinos in other ways, too, with events such as a breakfast with Hispanic elected officials.Report looks at legal protectionAccording to her dads, life is good for Carrigan StarlingLittlefield, a spunky 5-yearold being raised by two gay men in South Carolina, which doesnt recognize their out-of-state marriage. Weve found that being a family has created a lot of common ground with other families. Weve not had many issues at all, said Tommy Starling, a partner in a food brokerage.Yet he and his husband, Jeff Littlefield, who became parents through a California-based surrogacy program, remain wary as they contemplate Carrigan growing older and confronting challenges beyond their supportive community in Pawleys Island, S.C.Were cautious about where we go, because we dont want our daughter to see any negativity, said Starling, 39. We have some longer-term apprehensions that shell face issues as she gets older, and were trying to prepare her for that ... I feel shes the type of person who will stand up for her family. Carrigan is among a growing multitude of American children possibly more than 1.2 million of them being raised by gay and lesbian parents, often without all the legal protections afforded to mom-anddad households. Increasingly, the welfare of these children will be a core part of gay-rights strategies, as evidenced by a comprehensive report being released Tuesday. Compiled by an alliance of advocacy and child-welfare groups, it summarizes how laws and social stigma create distinctive challenges for gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender families.There are myriad ways that our families are discounted by government at all levels, and children are hurt the most, said Jennifer Chrisler of the Family Equality Council, one of the three groups authoring the report.The other groups are the liberal Center for American Progress and the Movement Advancement Project, a gayrights think tank. Among other participants in the project were the National Association of Social Workers and the Child Welfare League of America.The U.S. census does not attempt to count the number of children being raised by gays and lesbians. Demographer Gary Gates of the UCLA School of Laws Williams Institute, who has been a consultant to the Census Bureau, estimates the number at 1.2 million, while the new report uses the figure of 2 million, including children with bisexual and transgender parents.Whatever their numbers, the families are striking for their diversity encompassing many low-income and minority households, and spread across about 96 percent of Americas counties, according to data compiled by Gates and others. Among the barriers and inequities they face, as detailed in the report:Many government safety net programs use definitions of family tied to marital status which may exclude same-sex partners. Because of lack of legal recognition for their unions, gay and lesbian parents can face heavier tax burdens, higher costs for health insurance, and diminished financial protections in the event of death or disability. When same-sex parents separate, one parent may lose custody or visitation rights, even in cases where he or she had been a childs primary caregiver.Overshadowing all these problems is pervasive social stigma, according to the report.Many of the challenges LGBTfamilies face stem from a society that assumes that everyone is heterosexual and comes from a family with two married heterosexual parents, it says. Many of the obstacles and inequities outlined in the new report would be addressed if same-sex marriage now legal in six states and Washington, D.C. were legalized nationwide and recognized by the federal government. However, the report includes numerous recommendations for less sweeping changes that would benefit children with gay parents, such as: Broadening the definition of family to allow LGBTfamilies to benefit fully from government safety-net programs, and revise the tax code to provide equitable treatment for these families. At present, even legally married same-sex couples who can file joint state tax returns must file separate federal returns. Enacting state-level parental recognition laws that would allow joint adoption by LGBTparents. Even with about 110,000 children in foster care who are eligible for adoption, some states and agencies refuse to place children with same-sex couples. Ensuring that LGBT families have access to health insurance on equal terms with heterosexual families, and eliminate inequitable taxation of these benefits. Ensuring that hospital visitation and medical decision-making policies are inclusive of LGBTfamilies. Expanding education and training about LGBT families for social workers, health care providers and other professionals. Jeff Krehely, director of the Center for American Progresss LGBTresearch and communications project, said the report is part of an effort to counter arguments that same-sex marriage is a threat to children. People who oppose marriage equality have used and exploited children in a very scare-mongering way, said Krehely, who hopes the report will increase public understanding and empathy. The report, titled All Children Matter: How Legal and Social Inequalities Hurt LGBTFamilies, was presented Tuesday at an event in Washington drawing some high-level government officials.Associated PressGAY RIGHTS KeysNet.com Keynoter 6A Wednesday,October 26,2011 Come visit our online photo galleries and submit your own at www.KeysNet.com/Photos Coral Shores High School seniors Ryan Bahn and Kelsie Thiele enjoy the moment after being named as Homecoming King and Queen.They were crowned during halftime festivities at Fridays home football game.Keynoter photo by KEVIN WADLOWHURRICANE ROYALTY More Latin speakers soughtBy JEANNETTE RIVERA-LYLESThe Orlando SentinelELECTIONS

Story, 3B B Sports & OutdoorsFishing CommunityLifestyle Early lead nearly evaporates in tough showdown gameNothing comes easy for the Key West High School football team. The Conchs, with a 24-6 lead, appeared to be breezing toward a victory against Hialeah-Miami Lakes last Friday night at Tommy Roberts Memorial Stadium. But as it turned out, they had to hang on before winning, 24-19, in a game that came down to the final play. With three seconds left in the fourth quarter and the ball on the Key West 7 yard line, HMLquarterback Nick Pergakis launched what he had hoped would be a gamewinning pass. The Conchs and their fans then celebrated when the ball was caught behind the end zone. Key West was led on offense by wide receiver Clive Georges, who scored two touchdowns, one on a 78-yard end-around run and the other on a 10-yard pass from Donald Roberts. After that pass, Georges scored on a two-point conversion that put the Conchs ahead, 24-6, early in the third quarter. That was a great film for him, as far as [his chances] at the next level, said coach Jerry Hughes. He showed his speed, even though guys had the angle on him. Georges had a third touchdown nullified by a penalty. We always seem to shoot ourselves in the foot, Hughes said. The defense led by Devin Barber, who had three interceptions, and Detravis Adams, who had one played well, Hughes said, until that last bomb. He was referring to an 83yard TD pass from Pergakis to Hakeem Lawrence that closed the gap for the Trojans to 24-19 with seven minutes left in the fourth quarter. Hes a pretty good athlete, Hughes said of the ballyhooed Lawrence, who caught four passes for 137 yards but was held to 59 rushing yards. The Conchs broke a twogame losing streak and improved to 4-3. They will be off until Nov. 4 when they play host to state power and district opponent Miami Norland.

Yellowtail bite is phenomenalGot snapper? The cooling Atlantic and Bay waters have really reinvigorated the snapper bite. Yellowtail fishing on the reef is simply phenomenal, with plenty of flags fish over 20 inches or about three pounds caught on a regular basis. The largest fish are coming out of the 40to 80-foot depths. There are smaller tails in the shallower areas, but its best to try for the big ones first. If theyre just not cooperating, move inshore a bit and get the fish that are more easily obtained. Mixed with the yellowtails are good quantities of mutton snapper plus very large mangrove snapper. As with all snapper fishing, copious amounts of chum are key to attracting and holding the fish at the boat. Avariety of fresh or frozen bait will work. There has been a decent color change offshore of the reef with some rather large dolphin riding the color edge. Most folks are targeting the yellowtail first. When theyve caught their fill, theyre jumping out to the color change in search of dolphin as well as the few sailfish and cobia that are beginning to show. Fishing the patch reefs and channel humps is also improving with lots of snappers of all kinds. The occasional keeper red and gag grouper are spicing the catches. In the Bay, the mangrove snapper are biting quite well with lots of fish in the 18to 20-inch range.Action heaviest in 40-80 foot water with chumFISHING THE FLORIDA KEYS Tamara and Al Bullen with their kingfish and amberjack caught with Capt.T.J.Yzenas and Island Lure Charters out of Captain Hooks Marina in Marathon.

Wed never really practiced with him. How many football teams at any level have to send in the fourthstringer to face a very good team? Coral Shores also struggled when starting center Benny Cosme went out with what turned out to be a broken foot. Three other linemen stepped in to handle snapping chores with mixed results. Depth issues made it a hard night, Holly said. It would have been easy to quit but our guys rose to the occasion and played hard. Down 33-0 in the second quarter, the Canes got in gear when safety Joey Vaughn grabbed a Coral Springs fumble out of midair and raced 21 yards for a touchdown with 2:45 left in the first half. The Hurricanes regrouped at halftime and came out with Andrew Garcias 30-yard kickoff return, with a 15-yard Panther penalty added on top. Each carrying four times, freshman runner Eddie Dunn gained 24 yards and junior Kodi Roberts had 18 yards in a 12-play, 49-yard drive with Pauchey at quarterback. On second-and-goal from the Panther 1-yard line, a left pitch to Garcia went wrong and bounced back up the field. Garcia scooped it up around the 17, then nimbly evaded Coral Springs defenders to score. His wild run goes into the books as a 1-yard touchdown. Pauchey booted the extra point to make it a respectable 33-13 with 4:25 left in the third. Special teams coach Jack Niedbalski and Holly made the call for an onsides kick that the Hurricanes recovered after senior Gianni Gonzalez jarred the ball loose from a Panther. Coral Shores had the ball at midfield, but the Panthers picked off a second-down pass that started them on a drive to score on a 16-yard run. On the Caneslast drive, Gomez ripped off an 18yard run, and Garcia hit a 12-yard halfback pass, but the march stalled on a fourth-down incompletion at the Panther 13. In was an encouraging finish to a game that went haywire early. Coral Springs Charter dampened Homecoming spirits on their first drive, going 61 yards on a 10-play drive and scoring on a 9yard touchdown pass. The Hurricanes came out with a motion running game but errant pitches and fumbles proved devastating. In barely a minute of game time, Coral Springs Panthers scored three times as a result of Hurricane turnovers. The Panthers scored their second touchdown on a 7-yard fumble return, moments after a 26-yard loss on a bad pitch. Asecond-down Cane pass was tipped at the line and intercepted. On the Panthersfirst down, they hit a 65-yard touchdown throw. Coral Shoresnext drive lasted one play and ended in a 23-yard fumble-return touchdown for the Panthers. We came out slow, Holly said. Weve got to get better at doing the little things blocking assignments, getting first downs and not turning the ball over.Canes sidelinedFrom Football,1B vidual medley and 100 backstroke. Victorious Key West girls were Dora DeMaria (500 free and 100 breaststroke) and Madison Nasser (100 butterfly). The Key West boys were led by Vincent Wassylenko Just one more lap, his Tshirt read who won the 500 free and 100 back. A.J. Hally won the 100 breast, Derrick Allen won the 50 free (23.20) and 100 free, Chris Bujak won the 100 fly and Kai Murphy won the 200 free. Marathons Aaron Grube was second in the 500 free, five seconds behind Wassylenko. It was the last regularseason meet for Marathon, but Key West swam again Saturday morning against Westminster Christian, the girls winning 96-70 and the boys losing, 114-56. The Conchs will swim at 9 a.m. today at the District 12-2Ameet at the Pompano Beach Aquatic Complex. Marathon and Coral Shores will be in the 1Ameet at Founders Park.Conch boys winFrom Swimming,1BDolphins beat Somerset AcademyMomentum from Marathon High Schools regular-season ending win last week carried over to the District 16-2Avolleyball tournament Monday. The Dolphins defeated Somerset Academy in three straight games-25-11, 25-16 and 25-11-to advance to a semifinal match against Palmer Trinity School. Overall, we played well as a unit. In the first game, the trip took its toll on us, but after that we attacked the ball every chance we had. We didnt try anything fancy, coach Teresa Konrath said. Junior Taylor Konrath had an excellent game at the net, notching a match high 19 kills. Sydney Konrath had seven kills and Cassidy Van Voorst had four. Jordan Roney led the Dolphins with 21 service points won, while Savannah Rodamer had 17 and Sydney Konrath 15. Roney also had 21 assists. Last Thursdays threegame victory over Doral Academy put the Dolphins regular season record at 1115. Coach Konrath said shes happy with that tally during a rebuilding year for the program. I think once the kids started playing and realizing they could become a good team they believed in themselves, she said. The Dolphins (12-15) were slated to take on a strong Falcons team in Tuesdays semifinal, but results were not available at press time. Win advances them to semifinalVOLLEYBALLBy RYAN McCARTHYrmccarthy@keynoter.com The complete Florida Keys news and information source.Dolphins squad to visit Key WestIt seems like every year the Marathon High School girls soccer program is fielding a young squad. Its just that we keep losing upper class players, coach Lynn Landry said, pointing out the team has just two juniors and three seniors. The rest are all underclassmen. This years team will look to erase the memory of an injury-plagued 5-12-1 season on 2010-11. That record is not indicative of the teams performance in recent years, as the program has produced quality young talent and solid win-loss records since 2007. The team returns standout attacking midfielder Katie Landry from a knee injury, but lost longtime defender Kelley Struyf to Division I Florida International University. Also gone is Michelle McKenna, as well as sisters Jasmine and Jesenia De La Cruz. But coach Landry said hes excited for the season, with more girls than ever participating in club soccer programs during the offseason. The knowledge of the game for us has improved greatly as a team, he said. We may be a little more creative this year with all the soccer knowledge. The Dolphins will look to younger players in Savannah Schuhmacher, Gaby Ceja and Regan Durkin to anchor the teams defense early in the season. The team will count on Katie Landry, Taylor Konrath and Marina Kay Wiatt for offensive production on the front line. Senior Julietta Pezzella is back from injury for her senior year and could see time in net. That means Samantha Bonilla-who filled in well as a goalie last season-will see time as a fullback. Bonilla has done a great job in net, but shes a very good defensive player for us, so we dont lose anything there, coach Landry said. The Dolphins began practice this year on Oct. 10, but are still missing a number of key players to fall sports at the moment. Most will be available this weekend, as the Dolphins visit Key West for a preseason tournament at Tommy Roberts Stadium. Marathon is scheduled to play the Conchs Friday at 6 p.m., and University School at noon on Saturday. Regular season play opens up with a Nov. 7 visit to Westwood Christian School at 4 p.m.Landry returns from injury as team rebuildsSOCCERBy RYAN McCARTHYrmccarthy@keynoter.com

LivingReuse,recycle gets highprofile attention Nov.2-5Atlanta businessman Claude Ouimet tells the story of a forklift operator working in one of InterfaceFLORs manufacturing plants. Askeptical business executive, unconvinced about the value of going green, asked the operator Why are you working here? The forklift operators response, Because Im making a difference, Ouimet recounts, which says a lot about the philosophy Oiumet carries with him whenever he talks sustainability and going green. Its changed his company and he hopes others embrace it as well. Hell bring the companys global perspective on green manufacturing to Eco-Week, a four-day program of speeches, workshops and field trips headquartered at the Tennessee Williams Theatre on Stock Island. Joining Ouimet is a host of other speakers who are part of the scheduled lineup for Eco-Week: Tia DiazBalart, president and founder of EcoChamber; Jennifer Languell, president of Trifecta Construction; Stuart Pimm, Doris Duke Chair of Conservation Ecology at the Nicholas School of the Environment and Earth Sciences at Duke University; Jorge Pinon, Senior Research Associate, Florida Internationl University, former President of Amoco Oil Latin America; Ed Overton, LSU Professor of Environmental Sciences and John L. Fiveash, counsel for Lewis, Longman & Walker, P.A. Ouimets company, InterfaceFLOR, a global manufacturer of modular carpeting systems, has embarked on Mission Zero. The concept embraces sustainability with the ultimate goal of using as few new natural resources as possible in the course of doing business. For carpet manufacturing, that means recycling their products and reusing the raw materials to repurpose and remanufacture. By 2020, the companys ambitious goal is to produce all their products from recycled and repurposed materials so zero new materials needed for their plants. Since 1994, InterfaceFLOR has reclaimed more than 220 million pounds of used carpet, recycling much of it into the production of its own modular carpet tile products. This takes place at InterfaceFLORs ReEntry 2.0 facility in LaGrange, Ga. just outside Atlanta and near the companys corporate headquarters. Ouimet will talk about going green at 4 p.m. Friday, Nov. 4 at the Tennessee Williams Theatre on Stock Island. Hes among a dozen speakers who will be sharing their visions and their challenges for the EcoWeek Summit. About his own companys embrace of going green, Ouimet says there is no question it can have a positive impact on your bottom line. But if youre only doing it for market share, youre going to fail. If youre doing it because its the right thing to do, youll succeed. You have to be accountable. You have to be transparent. You have to convince yourself and your work force that you are part of the global solution. You have to mean it, and you have to let people know you mean it.

The goal is to cultivate unity among residents while cleaning and sprucing up public areas that need some special attention. The cleanups are a great way for Scouts to earn merit badges and an opportunity for students to engage in service-learning projects. Cleanups include basic tasks like removing and transporting litter that potentially pollutes the environment, harms wildlife and detracts from the natural beauty of the Keys. Groups usually gather after events to share snacks, beverages, stories and photos. Volunteers are also needed to help post fliers before the cleanup. The fliers will announce the upcoming events and request volunteers. The clean-ups are in partnership with Reef Relief, T.R.A.S.H.E.D. in the Keys, Marathon Garbage Service, Keys Sanitary, Waste Management, and the citys of Marathon and Key Colony Beach.
