Achange in insurance providers might leave many of the 1,100 Monroe County children in the program without access to local pediatricians or other specialists, Dr. Stanley Zuba of the Florida Keys Pediatric and Adolescent Center in Tavernier said Monday. "It is just not right for these kids to be left without proper health care," Zuba said. "Whoever did this did not think it through." Healthy Kids, launched in 1990, is a state program with private insurance firms to provide affordable children's medical coverage to families. The program targets families who lack regular health insurance but have too much income to qualify for Medicaid. Payments are based on family income and which insurance plan they select. Effective Oct. 1, Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Florida no longer participates in Healthy Kids as a result of a state bidding process. That leaves families with a choice between plans offered by United Healthcare Community or Staywell Kids neither of which has a big Keys presence. That means some families in Healthy Kids might be forced to seek health care on the mainland. Attempts to reach Healthy Kids executives in Tallahassee were not successful. But a statement from a Healthy Kids PR representative says each of the new Healthy Kids plans will be able to provide access to more than 14 "family and general practice physicians serving families in Monroe County," including four pediatricians. Zuba said he does not know any Keys pediatrician who accepts the Staywell plan. Healthy Kids lists Dr. Mehmet Atilla of Key West as a participating pediatrician. However, two pediatricians named by Healthy Kids as serving Marathon were unknown to Fishermen's Community Hospital staff or other Middle Keys pediatricians. Another, Dr. Michael P. Hernandez of Florida Keys Pediatrics in Marathon, is applying to join the Healthy Kids program but is not currently an approved provider. "No one notified any of us providers ... nor the parents until a few weeks ago," Zuba said in a letter to U.S. Rep.Healthy Kids dumps Blue Cross, meaning loss of pediatrician servicesHEALTH CAREBy KEVIN WADLOWSenior Staff Writer firstname.lastname@example.org COASTAL CLEANUP 2nd push forwider channelWith decreasing cruiseship passenger counts and port calls expected in the coming year, the Key West Chamber of Commerce is renewing its push to study expanding a portion of the city's shipping channel to accommodate larger ships. Currently about 350 cruise ships make Key West a port of call. For the fiscal year starting Oct. 1, city officials expect that to be around 315 due to the increasing popularity of Asian and European trips, plus a Caribbean trend toward larger ships that Key West can't accommodate. Passenger fees help finance the city operating budget, which is expected to be $40.4 million 2012-13. Based on the city's projections, $418,000 in passenger fees will be lost; the city received $5.3 million in disembarkation fees and other cruise ship-related revenues in the current fiscal year. In people numbers, that equates to 711,791 passengers for 2012-13, down from 837,493. Chamber Executive Vice President Virginia Panico was poised Tuesday to make a presentation on the subject to the City Commission but it was scrapped at the last minute at the behest of Commissioner Tony Yaniz. "I think it's a politicking/lobbying campaign they're doing," Yaniz said of the chamber. "If they're going to have one side, some of my constituents are saying they feel different and they want equal time." Commissioner Jimmy Weekley, whose Old TownChamber wants larger ships in Key WestBy SEAN KINNEYskinney@keynoter.comKEY WESTThousands qualify for discounted WebCable provider Comcast is offering deeply discounted Internet service to tens of thousands of South Florida families including in the Keys but most of those who are eligible have yet to sign up. The company's Internet Essentials plan offers highspeed Internet, priced at $9.95 a month, to lowand moderate-income families. To be eligible, families must live in an area where Comcast offers Internet service, and at least one child in the family must be receiving free or reducedprice lunches at school. Huge numbers of families in South Florida have a child receiving free or reduced-price lunch. In the Monroe County School District, the figure is 48.7 percent of the 8,306 students enrolled as of Tuesday. There are some other eligibility hurdles (families must not have an overdue Comcast bill, and must not have subscribed to Comcast Internet within the past 90 days). For families that enroll, the $9.95 price is locked in for as long as the student continues receiving free or reduced-price lunch, or until they graduate from high school. In the case of elementary school students, that means parents could potentially take advantage of bargain-priced InternetProgram aims for poorer householdsBy MICHAEL VASQUEZmrvasquez@MiamiHerald.comTECHNOLOGYBoat ramps to see upgradesAplan to create a new Florida Keys mooring field for cruising boats and repair six public boat ramps will be floated at Friday's meeting of the Monroe County Commission in Marathon. Costs would total $595,500, which includes $250,000 to begin developing a mooring field that could be established in cooperation with a private firm providing onshore support. "Opportunities exist in several areas of the Keys where potential mooring field sites [currently unregulated] are adjacent to existing private facilities," says a report from Marine Resources Administrator Rich Jones. No site has been determined. The remaining Boating Improvement Fund projects would include $30,000 to repair the heavily used ramps at Harry Harris Park in Tavernier and about $5,000 each to repair ramps at State Road 4Aon Little Torch Key, Gulf View Park on Big Coppitt Key and Sunset Park on Key Largo.Gastesi letter also on agenda for commissionCOUNTY COMMISSIONSee County,3ASee Cruise ships,2ASee Insurance,2ASee Internet,2ABy KEVIN WADLOWSenior Staff Writer email@example.com
service for a decade or more. Roughly one in five American households with school-age children lacks at-home Internet access, according to a 2011 federal government report. Comcast typically charges in the $30 to $40 range for this type of Internet plan, known as its Economy Plus service. The package offers downloads up to 3 Mbps, or megabits per second. While not the fastest of Comcasts Internet plans, its adequate for normal use, said LaToya Giles of Lauderhill in Broward County, who signed up for the offer last year. During a Comcast news conference Monday, Giles said her 6-year-old son uses the Web to do his first-grade homework, and shes started taking online nursing courses at Broward College. Im able to do all of my homework, participate in discussions online, without having to go to the library, or go to my moms house, or go to a friends house, Giles, 26, said. With computer skills becoming more important for children in all grades and schools offering more textbooks and even whole classes online, the Comcast program is designed to help close the digital divide between richer and poorer households. The Federal Communications Commission has made expanding Internet access a top priority, and when the FCC last year approved Comcasts merger with NBC Universal, one of the agencys conditions was that Comcast offer discounted Internet to less-affluent families. The structure of the program hasnt always been well-received (some lowincome advocacy groups argue it should be easier to qualify), but Comcast officials say they are committed to expanding the number of households that benefit. This year, for example, families with children receiving reduced-price lunch were added (previously, only free-lunch families qualified).Web discountedFrom Internet,1A KeysNet.com Keynoter 2A Wednesday,September 19,2012 PREDICTED TEMPERATURESDA Y HIGH L O W WED.9081 THURS.9079 FRI.9081 SAT.9082 Forecast: Mostly cloudy with increased chance of thunderstorms.Breezy,fog overnight Thursday.

When they saw there was going to be a shortfall in cruise-ship revenues this year, I think it opened up a window of opportunity for them to start lobbying the commission to change [the commissions] position. Last November, commissioners, prompted by relatively one-sided public opinion, voted 6-1 not to ask voters in a city referendum whether they support exploring dredging the channel. Astudy would be undertaken by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers to analyze widening Cut B of the channel from 300 feet to 450 feet, allowing for longer ships that require a larger turning radius. The study would cost an estimated $5.5 million, half of which would come from the federal government and the other half from a combination of city, state and private funding. Actual dredging, expected to cost $36 million, would violate the federal law that created the Florida Keys National Marine Sanctuary. Panico said widening the channel is a public safety issue and that larger ships dont necessarily equate to more passengers. The ships are getting more amenities, bigger rooms, more suites, more restaurants and bigger pools. Its not necessarily more passengers but the competition is getting bigger and better in the lucrative Caribbean cruise market, she said. The chambers presentation, which Panico made Tuesday for the Key West Attractions Association, shows cruise-ship passengers and crew contribute $84 million to Key Wests economy. In part due to the expected reduction in cruise-ship money in 2012-13, the City Commission has raised property taxes and increased onstreet parking from $1 per hour to $2 per hour for the coming fiscal year. Key West passenger counts hit an all-time high of more than 1 million per year following the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks because people didnt want to fly. Passenger counts generally decreased following the January grounding of the Costa Concordia off the coast of Italy.Chamber pushesFrom Cruise ships,1A Ileana Ros-Lehtinen, protesting the loss of Blue Cross. This is a dire situation that puts thousands of kids in the Keys at risk.... Parents have complained to him that navigating the Healthy Kids voicemail network is incredibly difficult, he said. Blue Cross dealt fairly with physicians on costs, Zuba said, but reimbursement to doctors offered by the other Healthy Kids plans does not account for higher costs in the Keys. The statement from Healthy Kids says, Between both plans, all three inpatient facilities Mariners Hospital, Lower Keys and Fishermans Hospital will serve Monroe County families. Mariners Hospital in Tavernier accepts Healthy Kids clients under the United Healthcare plan, but not the Staywell Kids plan. Calls to business staff at Lower Keys Medical Center and Fishermens had not been returned at press time. Keith Douglass, a former Monroe County commissioner, was active in helping the Rural Health Network offer low-cost childrens health care to Keys families. It was a very successful program, Douglass said. But over the years, the state really pulled back from doing promotion or expanding local services. Trying to get kids health care was something that made sense to everybody, Douglass said. Its not supposed to be hard. Losing people like Dr. Zuba would be a huge loss.State pulled backFrom Insurance,1A Theft: N ot-guilty plea Former Great Marathon Radio Co. employee Danielle Alderman has pleaded not guilty to stealing more than $150,000 from her longtime employer, Joe Nascone. The 38-year-old worked for Nascone for 19 years at the radio station he headquartered for years on Boot Key in Marathon. His company broadcasts WGMX 94.3-FM and WFFG 1600AM. According to court documents, Alderman authorized $213,303 worth of business account debits over 18 months from January 2011 to May this year. That included 295 checks. Court documents state that $156,558 of those debits were for checks made out to cash to Alderman, which she was not authorized to do. Alderman was arrested on Aug. 6 on a charge of first-degree grand larceny of $100,000 or more. Her arraignment was Sept. 6 and she remains at the Monroe County Detention Center on Stock Island in lieu of $150,000 bond, according to the Sheriffs Office website. Alderman admitted to misappropriating the money while she cannot justify the spending, Deputy David Lariz wrote in his arrest report when she was taken into custody. Alderman is scheduled to make a pretrial appearance in Marathon before acting Circuit Court Judge Ruth Becker on Oct. 29 at 1:30 p.m. and is slated for trial on Nov. 13 at 9 a.m. Its unclear whether Aldermans attorney, William Heffernan, and Assistant State Attorney Tanner Demmery are working on a plea deal. Neither returned Monday and Tuesday phone messages. Nascone also did not return phone messages but when Alderman was arrested, he said he wanted her to do prison time since paying restitution seems unlikely.IN THE COURTSKeynoter StaffDead divers family suesThe family of a woman who died diving off the Keys on Aug. 6, 2011 along with another diver has sued the dive operator, the boat captain and the other victims estate, the Palm Beach Post reported Monday. Judy Boone, 53, of Wellington and Kevin Moss, 43, of Boca Raton died together on the deep ledge at Crocker Reef, about 60 below the surface off Plantation Key. Boones family claims David Leith, the operator of the dive boat, gave Boone bad dive gear and didnt monitor her or the other divers while they were in the water, the Post reported. The newspaper says the family also claims Moss was negligent because Boone died while trying to help him when he ran into problems underwater. At the time, authorities said the two were among five divers gathered for a reef trip. Leith ran the boat, a 25-foot Bayliner named Bob, as a favor to Mariann Radwan, 54, who organized the trip. Moss apparently ran low on air on the groups second dive and had trouble dealing with newly purchased gear that included a dive-weight system integrated into his buoyancy compensator. Boone died while trying to render assistance by trying to share her air with him. Moss suffered from Parkinsons disease and exhibited some symptoms but reportedly was a certified diver with hundreds of logged dives. Relatives told the South Florida SunSentinel that Moss exercised regularly and was physically fit. The pair died on their second dive of the day.IN THE COURTSKeynoter Staff ALDERMAN WEBBER Louise M.

An estimated 10,000 riders thundered down U.S. 1 to Key West for the 40th annual Phil Peterson's Key West Poker Run. Event Chairman Jerry Sanders from the cosponsoring Key West Sunrise Rotary Club said the participation level is on par with previous years. "I think it was the smoothest one we've ever run," Sanders says, noting that he received few negative comments about traffic and noise from residents of the Southernmost City. "It was just a lot of fun and we're thankful the weather held out for us." Key West police spokeswoman Alyson Crean reported eight motorcycle-related incidents, two serious. At 4:30 a.m. Saturday, a motorcycle rider lost control near Truman Avenue and Windsor Lane and hit the ground; he was airlifted to Jackson Memorial Hospital in Miami. At 12:30 a.m. Sunday, a motorcycle with two passengers rear-ended a police car at Palm Avenue and Eisenhower Drive; the pair was taken to Lower Keys Medical Center. Crean said detailed incident reports had not been finalized on Tuesday and could not identify those involved in the wrecks. Monroe County Sheriff's Office spokeswoman Becky Herrin reported only one motorcycle-related incident, around 1:40 p.m. Saturday. In that case, deputies spotted 27-year-old Ovidio Cabrear of Miami going more than 120 mph southbound on a 2009 Kawasaki at mile marker 111. Cabrera refused to stop for numerous deputies until eventually pulling over on Big Pine Key, Herrin said. Previously deemed a habitual traffic offender by a judge, Cabrera was charged with fleeing and eluding police, reckless driving and driving with his license suspended. A girl on the back of his bike said she was scared of the speed they were going.Few incidents to speak of, police sayKeynoter Staff KEYSNET.COM

Diane Johnson Sugarloaf KeyIt's not only Florida where educators have a problem with score-based evaluationsThe news this week out of Chicago focused on the teacher strike there, which closed schools for 350,000 children. One of the issues in contention: Performance measures and grading teachers for raises, promotions and retention. If that sounds familiar, it ought to, since Florida teachers have been battling a variation on this accountability front the past three years. There is one big difference, however: It's illegal for teachers to strike in Florida. Both the state Constitution and Florida law (Chapter 447.505) prohibit strikes by public-sector employees. Penalties are pretty drastic, including termination, probation if rehired, frozen salaries and even loss of retirement benefits (if found to have violated state law). In Chicago, a teachers union board member, Jay Rehak, told reporters his members were most concerned about job security and said a program that grades teachers based on students' standardized test scores is "data-driven madness." He'll find some support for that criticism from Florida parents, who have watched this state's fixation on FCAT scores to rate schools become teach to the test, a focus that's hurt, not helped. Even Gov. Rick Scott has begun talking about the need for changes in how tests are conducted, how best to measure academic progress, and how to integrate teacher evaluations. The Tampa Bay Times weighed in on this in an editorial published last Friday. "Most Florida schools still cannot tell parents how teachers performed last school year. Districts have been unable to complete teacher evaluations from 2011-12 due to the time it has taken the state Department of Education to establish student learning gains based on FCATscores on a teacher-by-teacher basis."Mind you, the law took effect two years ago and the state still can't figure out how to provide the data needed?We have a long way to go before teachers trust the system, especially given the litany of attacks aimed at teachers in Florida, Illinois and other states. John Romano, a Tampa Bay Times columnist, wrote about this Saturday: "My guess is that teachers make easy scapegoats. Instead of talking about how to improve test results, instead of talking about how to improve teacher performance, the state passes laws that threaten pay freezes and pink slips if standardized test scores do not improve. "This isn't about accountability; it's about blame." That's not the way to improve our schools. And for the first time perhaps parents and others invested in school reform maybe even the governor are beginning to embrace that lesson. Put down the phoneThere is a strange malady that has afflicted a huge percentage of our population, namely, an overwhelming compulsion to be constantly communicating.Folks are totally in love with their electronic devices. They carry them and use them everywhere in restaurants, at the movies, at the gym, while driving. I find that most folks don't really have much of importance or interest to say, so what are these people constantly yakking about?You see couples on a date texting someone else while ignoring the person they are with. You see families in a restaurant with every member talking or texting while totally ignoring each other. How pathetic, how sad, how rude.I own a cell phone and use it occasionally, but keep it primarily for emergency purposes. I don't text, tweet or Facebook.

Fact-checkers check the fact-checkers, assailing one another as the scientists create the data needed to support their political ideology. The hindrance of truth and veracity is of no concern. Words mean nothing and no one is accountable. Spin, along with rationalizing the absurd, has taken center stage. Delusion reigns supreme. Police and the soldiers that we train turn their weapons on us, killing our men and women with their taxpayerbought rifles. Occupying this unconquerable land has always been an action without merit. Buffoonery prevails at the political conventions. Broken men and women weep, cheer and lament each other's ineffectiveness, celebrating the illusion they are prepared to sell us. The military industrial complex is a powerand money-lusting demonic beast with a voracious appetite. It must be fed, destroyed or retooled. It will not listen to reason nor surrender its gains. It will take a leader with courage and integrity to harness its wealth and constructively redirect some of the projects that have been undertaken by this vast enterprise, an individual with strong business acumen. We can maintain our combat readiness and effectiveness while diverting the machinery of war into other profitable ventures that are more conducive to the quality of our lives if we cease to fund and keep in office our present crop of warmongers. John Donnelly Key LargoSewer help neededThe Lower Keys Chamber of Commerce has formally taken a position on behalf of businesses and residents of the Lower Keys being impacted by the Cudjoe Regional sewer system, which feature the issues as we see them and the solutions we feel are viable.Issue: There are crippling assessment fees based on a formula using residential usage, which in many cases does not relate to actual usage. Virtually all small businesses in the Cudjoe Regional sewer system are locally owned and the assessments will in many cases cause their demise, even with the proposed installment plan.Solution: Businesses are encouraged to timely participate in the appeal and review process if applicable to their situation. Alternative options to the currently proposed financing that will provide manageable payments without closing our businesses must be facilitated and found by the Florida Keys Aqueduct Authority and the county.Issue: An insufficient amount of grants, savings and cash flow available for paying the required lateral hookup costs, which cannot be financed on our tax bills and for which every homeowner is liable. The working-class community that largely makes up the Cudjoe Regional sewer system will, in many cases, be unable to pay for the lateral hookup costs and consequently will be forced out of the community, with irreparable damage to the entire community and the county.Solution: Realistic financing options and cost mitigation must be facilitated by FKAAand the county.Issue: Penalization of existing, pending and potential development that has or will have on site EPA2015-compliant wastewater treatment systems. Although it affects a small percentage of the Cudjoe Regional sewer system, the significant duplicate costs and chilling effect on development of the locally required abandonment of otherwise compliant on-site wastewater treatment systems puts a chokehold on the economic recovery of the entire community and the county's tax base.Solution: Allow the small number of on-site systems to remain while they are EPA-compliant, with a required inspection program. Additional or alternative options must be facilitated and found by FKAA and the county to avoid penalizing compliance and choking economic recovery and the county's tax base. The Lower Keys Chamber of Commerce applauds the county and FKAA's efforts to meet the statutory mandates and improve our waters, which are a precious resource and the heart of our economy. The foregoing Cudjoe Regional sewer system issues must be resolved to achieve this goal so that compliance is not at the expense of economic recovery. The Lower Keys Chamber of Commerce recommends and is willing to participate in an immediately formed coalition of FKAAand county representatives along with affected business people and residents for the purpose of investigating, facilitating and developing the above-referenced solutions to our sewer system issues, which are small in number but significant in scope. Steve Miller, president Lower Keys Chamber of Commerce Big Pine KeyPlanned hotel gets height increaseIt appears concerns over building heights have tempered among Marathon residents over the past few years. No one spoke against a planned Courtyard by Marriott hotel in Old Town Monday when property owner Roger Masters and development partner Prime Hospitality Group went before the city's Planning Commission asking for the building to be 8 feet higher than normally allowed under code. Masters and Prime representative Jorge Cepero presented plans in which the proposed hotel would exceed, in several areas, the city's 37foot height limit on new construction. The areas would basically be four-sided roofs on top of stairwells surrounding the hotel and one larger area at the front of it. The Planning Commission briefly addressed the architectural features before unanimously approving an amended development agreement and conditional use for the project. It increases the site from 80 to 95 units. In fact, competing developer Pritam Singh, who owns the nearby Tranquility Bay Resort at mile marker 48.5, encouraged the project. He said more name-brand hotels would draw more tourists to the Middle Keys. "You don't usually have competitors coming up saying, Build this,'" he said. "This is a good product. The height doesn't concern me." City Finance Director Peter Rosasco drew widespread criticism when he owned the 4.81-acre property at mile marker 48 bayside in 2009 and requested a 25 percent height variance for architectural features to build a Hampton Inn. The opposition was so much that he dropped the variance bid. However, Masters and Prime did submit a significantly scaled-down version of what Rosasco's plans called for. The architectural features are much fewer and will be no taller than 45 feet, according to city Planning Director George Garrett. The height issue was secondary to Masters'main goal of getting project approval but was expected by many to be a larger concern than it was. Garrett explained how commercial space was deducted and replaced with additional rooms. "It was approved for 80 units, with a substantial amount of commercial space. The new owner has determined the commercial space involved in the project really didn't make sense. The footprint of the project remains exactly as it was in the previous version," Garrett told the commission. Garrett added that Masters would likely seek allocations from the city's pool of at least 100 hotel units awarded by the state Cabinet in January. The city's had a moratorium on new units since incorporating in 1999, but was given the 100 new rooms by the state for its nearly complete citywide central sewer system. Masters has 46 units, but he and Prime are in the process of purchasing the old Longhorn Lodge property near 125th Street. That would add 30 units to the Courtyard site, and Masters is expected to seek an additional 19 from the city's new pool of units.By RYAN McCARTHYrmccarthy@keynoter.comMARATHON BPfraud allegedA31-year-old man from Homestead was indicted by a federal grand jury on Friday for allegedly trying to defraud the BPoil-spill claims center using the Florida Keys as his base.Jean Lindor is charged with five counts each of mail fraud and wire fraud, and three counts of access-device fraud for allegedly filing fraudulent claims alleging loss of income from the April 2010 Deepwater Horizon BPspill off the Louisiana coast.Following the spill which saw no BPoil surface in the Keys BPestablished the Gulf Coast Claims Facility to administer, mediate and settle individuals'and businesses' claims for costs, damages and other losses incurred as a result of the spill.Prosecutors say Lindor filed fraudulent claims against the fund, in his own name and in the name of a not-for-profit business he established called Noula Inc., located in Homestead. According to the indictment, Lindor sought emergency payments of $12,000 and $25,000, respectively, on his personal and business claims.To execute the scheme, the feds say, Lindor used the mail and Internet to open the claims and submit required forms and documentation, including employment verification letters and tax return documents.The indictment alleges the documents Lindo provided in November and December 2010 were false in that they represented he worked at "an organization in the Florida Keys" at the time of the spill and that his hours and income had been curtailed as a result.The indictment also alleges Lindor used unauthorizedclaim numbers to file the claims.IN THE COURTSKeynoter StaffGov.Rick Scott has begun talking about the need for changes in how tests are conducted.
So much for silence from telemarketers at the cherished dinner hour, or any other hour of the day.Complaints to the government are up sharply about unwanted phone solicitations, raising questions about how well the federal do-not-call registry is working. The biggest category of complaint: Those annoying prerecorded pitches called robocalls that hawk everything from lower credit card interest rates to new windows for your home.Robert Madison, 43, of Shawnee, Kan., says he gets automated calls almost daily from "Ann, with credit services," offering to lower his interest rates. "I am completely fed up," Madison said. "I've repeatedly asked them to take me off their call list." When he challenges their right to call, the solicitors become combative, he said. "There's just nothing that they won't do."Madison, who works for a software company, says his phone number has been on the do-not-call list for years. Since he hasn't made any progress getting "Ann" to stop calling, Madison has started to file complaints about her to the Federal Trade Commission, which oversees the list.Amid fanfare from consumer advocates, the federal do-not-call list was put in place nearly a decade ago as a tool to limit telemarketing sales calls to people who didn't want to be bothered. The registry has more than 209 million phone numbers on it. That's a significant chunk of the country, considering that there are about 84 million residential customers with traditional landline phones and plenty more people with cellphone numbers, which can also be placed on the list.Telemarketers are supposed to check the list at least every 31 days for numbers they can't call. But some are calling anyway, and complaints about phone pitches are climbing even as the number of telemarketers checking the registry has dropped dramatically.Government figures show monthly robocall complaints have climbed from about 65,000 in October 2010 to more than 212,000 this April. More general complaints from people asking a telemarketer to stop calling them also rose during that period, from about 71,000 to 182,000.At the same time, fewer telemarketers are checking the FTC list to see which numbers are off limits. In 2007, more than 65,000 telemarketers checked the list. Last year, only about 34,000 did so.FTC:It's workingDespite those numbers, the FTC says the registry is doing an effective job fighting unwanted sales calls."It's absolutely working," Lois Greisman, associate director of the agency's marketing practices division, said in an interview with The Associated Press. But, she said, "the proliferation of robocalls creates a challenge for us."Greisman said prerecorded messages weren't used as a major marketing tool in 2003, when the registry began. "In part because of technology and in part because of greater competitiveness in the marketplace, they have become the marketing vehicle of choice for fraudsters," she said.For people trying to scam people out of their money, it's an attractive option. Robocalls are hard to trace and cheap to make.With an autodialer, millions of calls can be blasted out in a matter of hours, bombarding people in a struggling economy with promises of debt assistance and cheap loans. Even if a consumer does not have a phone number on the do-not-call list, robocalls are illegal. A2009 rule specifically banned this type of phone sales pitch unless a consumer has given written permission to a company to call.Political robocalls and automated calls from charities, or informational robocalls, such as an airline calling about a flight delay, are exempt from the ban. But those exemptions are being abused, too, with consumers complaining of getting calls that begin as a legitimate call, say from a charity or survey, but then eventually switch to an illegal telemarketing sales pitch.Robocalls can be highly annoying to consumers because they're hard to stop. Fraudsters use caller-ID spoofing so that when a person tries to call back the robocaller, they get a disconnected number or something other than the source of the original call.The best thing people can do when they get an illegal robocall is to hang up. Do not press "1''to speak to a live operator to get off the call list. Wednesday,September 19,2012 5A Keynoter KeysNet.com 5101 Overseas Hwy. (305) 743-6350Mon.

Some restaurants have already posted the counts. The move comes ahead of a regulation that could require major chains to post the information as early as next year."We want to voluntarily do this," said Jan Fields, president of McDonald's USA. "We believe it will help educate customers." In cities such as New York and Philadelphia where posting calorie information is already required, Fields notes that the information has not changed what customers choose to order. "But I do think people feel better knowing this information," she said. The chain also plans to announce that its restaurants in Latin America, which are owned by a franchisee, will start providing calorie information this spring. McDonald's, based in Oak Brook, Ill., already posts calorie information in Australia, South Korea and the United Kingdom. The decision to post calorie information in the U.S. follows the Supreme Court's decision this summer to uphold President Obama's health-care overhaul, which includes a regulation that would require restaurant chains with more than 20 locations to post calorie information. The timetable for carrying out that requirement is being worked out. Corporate Accountability International, which has urged McDonald's to stop marketing its food to children, notes that the chain has fought efforts to institute menu labeling in local jurisdictions in the past and said its latest move was "certainly not voluntary." The Wendy's Co. did not immediately respond to requests for comment. Representatives for Burger King Worldwide Inc. and Yum Brands Inc, which owns Taco Bell and KFC, said they're waiting for further guidance from regulators before updating their menus.Such info required under health lawBy CANDICE CHOIAssociated PressFAST FOOD Do-not-call list still abusedMarketers ignoring federal lawBy JENNIFER C.KERRAssociated PressCONSUMERS Business Come visit our online photo galleries and submit your own at www.KeysNet.com/Photos
Florida's pension chief says that the state may need to increase the amount of money it puts into the state's massive retirement fund and ratchet down expectations on how much it expects to make off investments in the coming year. Ash Williams, executive director of the State Board of Administration, has written legislative leaders twice in the last four months to suggest changes may be needed to the nearly $130 billion Florida Retirement System. His recommendations were included in an annual report in May and he emphasized them again in a Sept. 4 letter. Williams insisted that he is not trying to ring an "alarm bell" for the main pension plan, which has more than 800,000 retirees, state workers, teachers and other public employees enrolled in it. "If you are a typical retiree who is always wanting to answer the question Is my check coming next week?' the answer is yes," Williams said. But Williams echoed the longstanding concerns expressed by Gov. Rick Scott and others that the state is relying on investment returns that may not be achievable in the wake of the 2008 financial meltdown and recordlow interest rates that have made it harder to yield large investment returns. Scott once called state and local pensions a "ticking fiscal time bomb" although he did not propose any serious changes this year. "If we're not keeping pace ... then we are falling further behind," said Sen. J.D. Alexander, the Senate budget chief, at a legislative meeting last week. The state now assumes that it will earn 7.75 percent on its investments in order to pay off its pension plan obligations. The state has not consistently met those targets, according to a lengthy report presented to an advisory panel on Monday. It missed the target for the last budget year that wrapped up in June, but for the calendar year the pension plan is exceeding it. In his May letter, Williams floated the idea of lowering the return rate to 7.25 percent. The downside to this, however, is that changing the investment target would force the state to increase its cost by as much as 2 percent while also worsening the overall health of the pension plan. The 2008 financial crisis cost the pension fund billions. It is 13 percent underfunded and does not right now have enough money to cover all current and future benefits for public employees although it still considered healthy by many financial experts. A change in investment targets would then likely increase the projected size of the state's unfunded liabilities. There was already an expectation that lawmakers will spend roughly $500 million in the coming year to help bring down that gap. The state's pension plan could also be impacted by a pending ruling by the Florida Supreme Court. Justices have been asked to strike down a law passed in 2011 that forced all public employees to start paying 3 percent of their salaries to cover pension costs.

Over the summer, Gentile drew heat from the public and some School Board members when it was discovered that despite claiming to be a CPAin Florida and New York on the job application that resulted in his April 2010 hiring, he didn't hold the certification in either state. But now, according to the New York Office of the Professions, Gentile has reactivated his New York license. "I am now current in New York," he said. "I am going to go through the transfer process in Florida." On June 21, Florida Department of Business and Professional Regulation Investigator Christopher Hughes contacted district officials to notify them he was looking into the lack of a Florida CPAlicense and requested documents related to Gentile's employment and duties. DBPR spokeswoman Sandi Poreda said Tuesday that "the investigation into Kenneth Gentile for unlicensed CPAactivity is still active at this time." Gentile has retained Key West attorney Robert Cintron to handle the school system's internal inquiry essentially an interview with contract schools attorney Dirk Smits and Miami-based labor attorney Andrew Byrne of Bryant, Miller and Olive to deal with the state. The board's posture has been to wait for the outcome of the state's investigation.

Turns out that 304 of the spiny lobster tails were also under the legal size limit, which according to the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission is the 3-inch carapace when measured in the water. The two men were arrested after bringing the lobster ashore near mile marker 54 and being searched by Monroe County Sheriff's Office Deputy Wilfredo Guerra. They were each charged with possession of 332 wrung lobster tails (tails can't be wrung on the water) and possession of 304 undersized lobster tails. According to Guerra's report, he saw Rua, 41, and Rubio, 26, coming ashore near the former Quay restaurant property around 4:10 a.m. Sunday. Their vessel had no lights on. The report says once docked, Guerra saw Rua and Rubio carrying a gray plastic container toward a black SUV in the parking lot. Guerra approached the two men and asked to inspect the container. The report says both men admitted to possessing all the tails; they were arrested. Rua and Rubio remained jailed as of Tuesday afternoon on $150,000 bond.

"Because we've been so dominant in our running game, Ransom put 10 players in the box to stop us," Cane head coach Ed Holly said. That worked for a while as Ransom took a 7-3 lead into halftime at the Raiders' home field. "Obviously we needed to loosen up and throw more," Holly said. "We settled down and were still able to move the ball offensively."Senior quarterback Addison Duma-Kenny went 5-for-9 for 72 yards with two touchdowns and one interception as the Canes rallied.With his blockers giving him time to throw, DumaKenny found wideout Alberto Anderson for a 41yard touchdown and big tight end Will Ismer for a 22-yard scoring toss. Just to change things up, sophomore halfback Eddie Dunn pulled up on an option and lobbed a pass to 6-foot-2 sophomore receiver Dylan Naughton for a 23-yard touchdown. Coral Shores moves to 3-0 on the season, setting up a battle of undefeated South Florida Football Conference squads at Pine Crest of Fort Lauderdale. Game time is 7 p.m. Friday. The clash is Coral Shores' only game against an SFC North division opponent in the regular season. The Canes play in the South division so this game's outcome will not affect either school's division standings for postseason play. Pine Crest (3-0) "is a very, very good football team that runs a spread offense. They're big, fast and strong," Holly said. "I think everybody on our team is looking forward to going up there and having fun," Holly said. "Pine Crest is going to be the favorite on their home field so we have nothing to lose. It's an opportunity to do what we do and try to play great football."Coral Shores played well on both side the field at Ransom.

After an opening three weeks (including an exhibition) against bigger and faster opponents, Country Day was supposed to be a matchup of similarly sized rosters. "We just weren't getting any push on the offensive line. We were missing blocks and they were hitting our running backs before they got a chance to get moving," Martin said. Ian Almodovar led the Dolphins (1-2) with 43 yards rushing on 19 carries, as Marathon managed 159 yards of total offense. The Spartans had 254 yards 140 rushing and 114 in the air. Dolphins quarterback Roberto Perez was 7-for-15 passing for 98 yards and three interceptions, and Carlos O'Farrill had two catches for 52 yards. Marathon had numerous opportunities to put points on the board, but fumbled once in Spartans territory and threw two interceptions inside the red zone. Despite all that, Marathon was still down by only seven points, 14-7, in the fourth quarter. The Dolphins'defense held the Country Day offense largely in check, but injuries caught up with them and the Spartans started making way in the fourth quarter. "We played fairly well on defense, but started to get gashed in the fourth quarter because we didn't have any more players to put out there. We were missing three of four starting defensive backs and a linebacker to injury," Martin said. One of those injuries was suffered by junior Shemar Fantroy in a collision involving several players next to the Dolphins'sideline. Fantroy suffered a mild concussion and was taken to the hospital for precautionary reasons. Martin said Fantroy was in school Monday.

Stemage stars in Conch winAfter Friday night's 43-17 road victory over West Broward, it seems that the new triple-option offense is working out fine for the Key West High School football team.Not only did the Conchs use their speed Deonte Stemage raced for 197 yards and three touchdowns but they also, surprisingly, converted two fourth-down passes that resulted in first downs that helped turn around a game that hadn't been going that well.Key West scored 30 unanswered points after trailing by four with eight minutes left in the third quarter of the nondistrict game played at Ransom Everglades High in Miami.After a field goal had increased the Bobcats'14-13 halftime lead to 17-13, the Conchs went on a 78-yard scoring drive, a drive that continued because of a 25yard pass from quarterback Donald Roberts to Luis Acosta on fourth-and-12 from the West Broward 45.That set up two runs by Norman Lopez, another speedster, the second of which was a touchdown jaunt of eight yards. Stemage then scored on a 2-point conversion to put Key West ahead, 21-17.Early in the fourth quarter, the Conch defense stopped the Bobcats'fourth-and-two attempt at the Conch 24 yard line. On the next play, Stemage, helped by blocks from Acosta and Lopez, ran 77 yards down the right sideline for a TD and it was 28-17."We expect that from him," coach Johnny Hughes said of Stemage. "He's so explosive." With about five minutes left, the Conchs, with a fourth-and-10 on their own 30, again decided not to punt. This time, Roberts hit fullback Elliott Valdez on a 19yard pass for a first down. On the next play, Jeffery Anilus, yet another speedster, ran 51 yards for a TD. Roberts followed with a 2-point conversion run to make it 36-17. Reserve quarterback Juwan Brown scored the final TD on a three-yard run.Though the Conchs have a punter in Ricardo Gomez, Hughes indicated that the daring fourth-and-long plays may continue. "Unless we're really pinned back, we like the odds of using four plays [to get a first down]," he said.Three TDs, 197 yards on the groundBy DICK WAGNERKeynoter ContributorKEY WEST 43,WEST BROWARD 17Reef and wrecks are best shotsThe reef and wreck areas continue to provide the best entertainment these days, with mutton snapper taking center stage. Generous-sized muttons are coming off the wrecks in very healthy numbers. Ballyhoo is the bait of choice. Amberjacks, jack crevalle and fine-eating almaco jacks are a bonus from these venues. The 40to 60-foot depths on the reef are offering up good numbers of mangroves and yellowtails. The mangroves bite best on ballyhoo chunks or small, live ballyhoo and pinfish, while the yellowtails take filleted pieces of ballyhoo.Offshore, fishing for blackfin tuna is consistently very good at the 409 and Marathon humps. The largest fish are coming out of the 200-plus foot depths, and they're taking live baits and butterfly jigs.Dolphin sightings are on the rise, as well. This fishery will continue to improve as the cold fronts push the fish south into our area in the coming weeks.With the uptick in wind we've had this week, it's good to have the option of fishing the relatively calm bay and gulf venues. There's a consistent bite on mangroves in and around the grass banks in the bay and inshore Gulf wrecks. These fish average one to three pounds. Chunks of ballyhoo fished on a light jig head work best.The week's bestThe SeaSquared crew was privileged to spend the week filming with George Poveromo for his "World of Saltwater Fishing" show on the NBCSnapper,jacks biting,tuna's good offshoreFISHING THE FLORIDA KEYSChris Johnson Captain'sColumn See Conchs,2BKey West swimmers dispatch Keys GateThe Key West High boys swimming team remained undefeated and the girls team improved to 2-2 after victories over Keys Gate Charter Friday at the Florida Keys Community College pool.The Conch boys won, 105-64, and the girls prevailed, 103-65. Junior sprinter Derrick Allen won both the 50-yard freestyle (23.82 seconds) and the 100 free (53.64) for the fourth consecutive meet. "He's been phenomenal," said coach Lori Bosco. "We've been working with him on techniques."Allen was also on the winning 200 and 400 relay teams with Chris Bujak, Trevor Helms and Kai Murphy. Murphy also won the 200 free and junior Meric Edge won the 100 backstroke in a personal-best 1:16.The girls team had five individual winners Story Magidson in the 200 free, Devin Osterhoudt in the 100 free, freshman Kristen Reed in the 100 butterfly in a personal-best 1:20, Michelle Konik in the 100 back and Jadene Olsen in the 500 free. Magidson, Osterhoudt and Olsen, along with Alice Tallmadge, teamed to win the 200 relay. "What I liked most about the meet is how we're coming together as a team," Bosco said. "We had a lot of personal bests."

"Both teams played well." Naughton made the most of his playing time on defense, with an interception and fumble recovery to go with five solo tackles and two assists. Defensive back Paul Pauchey was among leading tacklers, and put the Canes on the board with 32yard field goal.Cane senior Jimmy Rhyne a standout halfback, receiver and defensive back was ejected from the Ransom game. That means he will be sidelined at Pine Crest.Senior fullback Kodi Roberts (nine carries for 62 yards) and Dunn (17 carries, 68 yards) piled up most of the Canes'141 rushing yards against Ransom. Roberts also had a 9-yard reception from Duma-Kenny.Pine Crest dominated St. Andrews and Fort Lauderdale High in its first two games but needed a 47-yard field goal to edge Westminster Academy in last week's 17-14 victory.Rhyne ejectedFrom Hurricanes,1B The first half (three turnovers) was rocky for Key West. West Broward's Anderson Correa returned the opening kickoff for a 92yard score. The Conchs came back on Stemage TD runs of 10 and three yards to take a 13-7 lead, but, after Roberts lost a fumble on his own 4, Correa scored again, and the Bobcats held on for the 14-13 halftime lead.It seemed only a matter of time before the Conchs would break loose. "They played us tough for a while," Hughes said. "They jammed the box so we were trying to get outside and we finally did."The Conchs (2-1) will play Solid Rock Christian at 7 Friday night at Tommy Roberts Memorial Stadium.Conchs now 2-1From Conchs,1B against Fort Pierce-area John Carroll High School. Marathon started the game Friday by returning the opening kickoff back 60 yards to the Country Day 25-yard line. After a four-yard gain on first down, the Dolphins fumbled the next play. The Spartans marched eight plays down the field and scored on a 5-yard touchdown run. The next Dolphins'possession ended with an interception at the Country Day 30-yard line. But the Spartans fumbled the ball right back and Marathon scored eight plays later on a 2-yard touchdown run by Perez to make it 7-7 in the second quarter. Country Day added another score off a long drive near halftime to take a 14-7 lead into the half. Marathon recovered a fumble inside the 20-yard line to start the second half, but a botched snap led to a missed field goal attempt. A16-play Country Day drive ended with a missed field goal attempt, but they went up for good, 217, on a nine-yard touchdown run with 6:23 remaining in the fourth quarter.

Key West is the best U.S. winter location, the Farmer's Almanac says in its justreleased 2013 edition. In contrast to its list last year of the top cities where weather can shut down everyday life, this year's list was based on, among other things, average temperature, humidity level, dew point and the like. "We also decided that the best winter cities would have something for everyone, mainly, the warm sunny days, but also a few places would have snow and cold conditions," Almanac staff wrote. "Our first three choices are based on places that boast comfortable temperatures and plenty of sunshine; our last two, however, are places that can boast lots of cold and snowy weather." The top five:Key West: "What better way to enjoy winter weather than in a city that has no known record of frost, ice, sleet or snow? Thanks to its location, this city enjoys a mild, tropical maritime climate."The average afternoon winter temperature is in the 70s and at night only goes to a low of 60. The period of December through April receives abundant sunshine (70 percent in December, rising to 83 percent by April), and slightly less than 25 percent of Key West's annual rainfall. This rainfall usually occurs in advance of cold fronts, in a few heavy showers or occasionally five to eight light showers per month."If there is a cold front that blows in, it is modified by the warm Gulf waters it travels over. Winter temperatures are usually only 15 degrees lower than summer's."San Diego: "The prevailing winds and weather are tempered by the Pacific Ocean, which results in winters that are pleasantly mild compared to other places on the same general latitude.... As for snow, it's practically unknown at the Weather Service office, although on those few and far between occasions when it has happened (1949, 1967, 1985), only a trace has fallen."Phoenix, Ariz.: "The valley is oval shaped and flat, except for scattered precipitous mountains rising a few hundred to 1,500 feet above the valley floor. Phoenix and the Valley of the Sun annually attract thousands of visitors looking to enjoy the area's outstanding weather, attractions and activities."Watertown, N.Y.: "This town is about 20 miles south of the Thousand Islands and west of the Adirondack Mountains. Named after the many falls located on the Black River, Watertown is also the birthplace of the five-and-dime and the safety pin. This is one of our two choices for those who love a winter that has tons of snow."Flagstaff, Ariz.: "Just 150 miles north of Phoenix, Flagstaff is located at an elevation of 7,000 feet on a volcanic plateau at the base of the highest mountains in Arizona. The National Weather Service describes the winters here as vigorous, and the stormy months are January, February, and March."

The event hosted by the Be the Change of the Florida Keys youth group and Keys to Peace is free and open to the public.Coral Shores High School senior Tyler Ford heard King at a Holocaust awareness event and recommended her as a speaker for Be The Change's program of "Ending Racism and Hate," which campaigns against bullying. King told interviewers that family and personal issues left her feeling isolated until a skinhead group welcomed her into their ranks. She began doubting their philosophy after the Oklahoma City bombing, and made a final break during her prison sentence.Former skinhead speaks Friday in Key LargoUPPER KEYS KINGAlmanac names Key West bestTOURISM Come visit our online photo galleries and submit your own at www.KeysNet.com/Photos
