Captains column, 1B On the down sideThe Lady Conchs fall in their preseason soccer contest but hope for a rebound this Friday. Story, 1B Rate relief anywhere in sight?A bipartisan group of congressional lawmakers is pressing for a four-year delay to changes to the federal governments flood insurance program that are threatening to sock thousands of people including in the Keys with unaffordable premium hikes.The move comes as the government is beginning to implement a significant overhaul of the much-criticized program. That overhaul passed last year with sweeping support. The revamped program was backed by both liberals and tea party conservatives but has caused a panic in places like Florida, where higher rates threaten to push some people out of their homes.Some of the most ardent supporters of delaying the premium increases are conservative Republicans from Southern states, where the new rules have sent some home values plummeting because of uncertainty over insurance rates and because subsidized rates cant be passed along to buyers. New flood maps threaten to saddle some homeowners who are paying a few hundred dollars a year now with annual premiums of more than $20,000. The situation is a result of astronomical rate increases from the Federal Emergency Management Agencys National Flood Insurance Program that took effect Oct. 1, part of the 2012 BiggertWaters Flood Insurance Reform Act.Almost every Keys homeowner with a mortgage has depended on subsidized NFIP rates for affordable flood coverage, but owners of second homes and pre-FIRM houses are being hardest hit.Pre-FIRM refers to houses built before January 1975, when FEMAs flood insurance rate map came into exis-Keys Realtors wary of short-term fix, say homeowners still feeling effectsFLOOD INSURANCEBy ANDREW TAYLORAssociated Press Fantasy Fest losing luster?Now that the glitter and feathers have been packed away and the 35th annual Fantasy Fest bacchanal has passed, Key West residents are conducting the usual post-mortem comparing creativity vs. raunchiness, costumes or the lack thereof. Mayor Craig Cates, a member of the Monroe County Tourist Develop ment Council, said the 10day event is moving in the wrong direction. I get a lot of feedback from the community, he said Tuesday, and they feel it has gotten a little sleazy and we all know it has. He pointed to increasingly popular events like the Zombie Bike Ride, an unofficial event that in four years has grown from a couple hundred riders to an estimated 5,000, that are more creative and really taking off because of that. The TDC reinvests bedtax dollars into event marketing via five district advisory councils, which have committed to spending $185,000 promoting the event for 2014. The actual event is owned by a nonprofit called the Key West Tourist Development Association, which since 1990 has contracted with the local Market Share Co. to raise sponsorships and run the production. Smaller-themed parties like Sloppy Joes Toga Party or Dantes Haloes and Horns are put on by the restaurants, which pay Market ShareMayor: More creativity, less sleazeBy SEAN KINNEYskinney@keynoter.comKEY WESTPhoto by ANDY NEWMANA float rolls down Duval Street during the Fantasy Fest Parade late Saturday in Key West.

Cuba-Key West flights returnFor the first time since 1962, regularly scheduled air travel between Key West and Havana is returning. Beginning Nov. 15, a Miami-based travel company says it will offer chartered flights from Key West International Airport to Jose Marti International Airport in Cuba for small groups of qualifying travelers. But they still have a lot of work to do in a short period of time, Monroe County Airports Director Peter Horton said Tuesday. The process began in 2009 with a request to U.S. Customs and Border Protection to designate Key West International as an official point of entry. Following that was a three-phase, two-year, $2.25 million project to have the airport reclassified as a federal inspection station, instead of the current label of a general aviation facility. Horton said that with the upgrades the feds signed off in October 2011, it left it up to industry operators to begin offering service. That role is being filled by Miami-based Mambi Travel and airline Air MarBrisa, which already offers flights to Cuba from Miami, Tampa and New York.Horton said before flights can begin, Mambi has to finalize an agreement with Air MarBrisa, with the fixed base operator in Key West and get a final sign-off from Customs and Border Protection.Flights will leave Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays at 3:30, returning theCharter firm plans to start on Nov. 15By SEAN KINNEYskinney@keynoter.comAVIATIONIllegally taken fish wont return to KeysLive sharks and other marine animals illegally captured in Florida Keys waters may travel again but likely will not come home. Facilities like the privately owned Idaho Aquarium must surrender rays and sharks that former managers unlawfully obtained from Keys marine-life collectors, said Jeff Radonski, a federal fisheries special agent in South Florida. They dont get to keep the animals, Radonski said Monday. Thats not going to happen. Decisions about the ultimate destination of fish recovered after investigations are made on a case-bycase basis. A lot of these critters wound up on the [U.S.] west coast, Radonski said. You have to consider the cost of moving them to bring them back.Some will be turned over to closer nonprofit display facilities where the public has the ability to view them, said Radonski, deputy special agent in charge of the regional Office of Law Enforcement for the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration.That avoids another crosscountry trip that could prove stressful and unhealthy for the animals.Theyll go somewhere where they can be taken careEight charged federally for under Lacey ActOUR ENVIRONMENTSee Insurance, 2ASee Fantasy, 3ASee Fish, 2ASee Flights, 3ABy KEVIN WADLOWSenior Staff Writer firstname.lastname@example.org
tence. Many of those homes are built at or below base flood elevation. In the Keys, Realtors say the effects of the new rates have already been felt in terms of home sales being called off. Theyre unsure what a delay of BiggertWaters would mean. I think the concerns will continue even after this resolution, said Jim Signor, owner of Re/Max Keys Properties in Key Largo. Its still early on but from what Ive heard, it sounds like a patch, not a fix. Its a concern to our business, but an even bigger concern to those who own the property this affects, Signor said. I applaud them for recognizing the impact the Biggert-Waters Act is having on people everywhere. Its horrendous, said Brian Schmitt, broker and owner of Coldwell Banker Schmitt Real Estate. This fix, as far as I read it, is for primary homeowners only. Its not for people who have investment property. If this fix doesnt address non-primary owners, its not going to help us. I dont know why theyre making the difference. In Key West, Bascom Groomes Real Estate owner Bascom Groomes said rate hikes cost him the sale of a $319,000 home on Summerland Key. We had a contract on the property and the buyer walked away, he said. He said that as a listing agent, his company is encouraging sellers to obtain elevation certificates so that a would-be buyer doesnt have to go through that threeto four-week process. New legislation would delay the new rates for people purchasing homes from someone who currently has a subsidized policy or people who face higher rates when flood maps are updated. People with second homes or whose property has repeatedly been flooded would still have to pay the higher rates, which are scheduled to rise by 25 percent a year until their premiums reflect the true risk of flooding. Biggert-Waters law protected subsidies for people who receive them if their houses hadnt been recently flooded. The new legislation would allow them to transfer the subsidy when they sell their home, thereby propping up home values.Sponsors of the bill included Democratic senators Bill Nelson of Florida, Bob Menendez of New Jersey and Mary Landrieu of Louisiana. Republican sponsors are senators Johnny Isakson of Georgia, David Vitter of Louisiana and Thad Cochran of Mississippi. Rep. Maxine Waters (D-Calif.) who cowrote the legislation raising rates is also on board.This is great news for many Floridians whove been told their flood insurance rates were going way up, Nelson said. If people cant afford the coverage, what good is it going to do? Its unclear whether the drive to delay implementation of the law will succeed. The flood insurance program has long offered below-cost rates for homeowners in flood zones and has racked up about $25 billion in red ink since its creation in 1968. It has been criticized for repeatedly paying off homeowners whose houses get flooded every few years. But that doesnt happen in the Keys.

Lois was born in Hollis, Oklahoma in 1932, to Audra Griffith Key and Andrew Finley Key. She was educated at the University of Chicago, where she earned a Bachelors degree and went on to study Art at the graduate level. It was in Chicago that she met her future husband, Robert Edward Giffen, home on leave from the U.S. Army. From 1960 to 1988, Lois and Bob traveled the world, living and working in Libya, Australia, Malaysia, and England, and raising two sons. A serious artist, Lois painted in oils for most of her career, and later focused on sculpture. She was active in the Keys arts community and served on the board of the Florida Keys Council of the Arts. Her work has been displayed at the Frangipani Gallery in Key West, the Artists in Paradise gallery in Big Pine, and many other local venues. Lois is survived by her brother Andy, sons John and Mark, and grandson Robert. Memorial services will be held on Saturday, November 2nd, 11:00 A.M. at Sombrero Beach Park, Pavilion 10, in Marathon. of, the agent said. We dont disclose the actual locations because of security concerns.When possible, healthy marine animals are released into the wild where the species are native. There are exceptions. After being in captivity, some sharks may have come to associate humans with being fed, Radonski said. So thats definitely a situation where you dont want to do a release.Animals that appear un healthy cannot be released.An investigation based in the Keys resulted in a series of arrests made earlier this year. At least eight people were criminally charged with capturing protected fish in Keys water or knowingly buying the marine animals without necessary permits.Six of the defendants pleaded guilty to conspiracy to violate the federal Lacey Act, which bans interstate trafficking in wildlife taken against state law. Prison sentences are possible when four defendants face sentencing in December in Key West.A criminal case against two staffers of a Michigan aquarium-supply company remains active.Lemon sharks, bonnethead sharks, nurse sharks and spotted eagle rays were among the animals illegally sold after being captured in the Keys. Authorities also documented the illegal purchase, possession or sale of undersized and oversized angelfish, sea fans and live rock, which refers to rock covered with living soft corals.This has national implications beyond the Florida Keys, Radonski said. The aquarium trade is getting bigger and bigger every year. Its just as much an environmental crime as a financial crime. A lot of damage cane be done ripping coral from the bottom, he said. Our agents are out there trying to protect our marine resources, from fish to coral.Feds say trade is increasingFrom Fish, 1A Ramsay: Shooting was by the bookWhile a state investigation continues, the Monroe County Sheriffs Office stands by deputies involved with Fridays shooting death of an Islamorada man.Robert Parlette Jr., 73, was the first to shoot, firing his .45-caliber handgun at deputies who responded to the 1 p.m. call in the waterfront Venetian Shores subdivision. Deputies returned fire, mortally wounding Parlette.By all accounts to this point, it was handled by the book, Sheriff Rick Ramsay said Tuesday. I feel bad for Mr. Parlettes family but our deputies had no other option. They took the appropriate action. At the end, they had to return fire and protect their own lives.Deputy Luis Gomez, a nine-year deputy with a solid record, apparently fired the shot that killed Parlette. Gomez was put on paid leave for a few days. This is not disciplinary at all. Its just to make sure he has time to take it all in, and talk to somebody if he needs to, Ramsay said. The Sheriffs Office will require the deputy to attend at least one counseling situation but Ramsay said he expects Gomez to return to duty soon. Three patrol cars rushed to the Bayview Isle Drive home after neighbors reported shots being fired. Deputies parked nearby and used a single Sheriffs Office sport utility vehicle to approach the residence, a safety measure. Deputies Greg Johnson and David Carey, along with Lt. Derek Paul, also responded. They went toward the back of the three-story house, overlooking a canal that leads to Snake Creek, when they found Parlette. Parlette, whose careers included running a flooring company, reportedly fired at the deputies. Ramsay said reports indicate Parlette may have suffered alcohol problems, possibly related to an ongoing domestic situation. Parlette owned the Islamorada home at 118 Bayview Isle Drive in the Venetian Shores subdivision for several years, spending time there and in Palm Beach County.The Florida Department of Law Enforcement is investigating the shooting. A final report will not be delivered to the Monroe County State Attorneys Office until complete autopsy results are available.We really have nothing new to report, Carol Frederick, FDLE agent in charge of the Keys, said Tuesday. Ramsay and his Internal Affairs chief reached the scene of the shooting soon afterward, along with staff from the State Attorneys Office. Unless something else comes along, theres no reason to think our officers did anything wrong or improper, Ramsay said. The shooting death was the first by a Monroe County Sheriffs Office deputy since the early 1980s, when a deputy on patrol in the Lower Keys was attacked by a chainwielding hitchhiker. The officer in that case suffered a broken jaw before he shot and killed the man.Sheriff says deputies had no other optionISLAMORADAUNDERWATER INSPECTIONS By KEVIN WADLOWSenior Staff Writer firstname.lastname@example.org Photo courtesy KEYS ENERGY SERVICESKeys Energy Services, which provides electricity from the Seven Mile Bridge south through Key West, has divers checking underwater transmission-line pole foundations.

about $2,800 for inclusion on the official Fantasy Fest schedule along with the attendant advertising exposure.Cates said that makes it difficult to some extent for the governmental TDC to exercise specific controls on the festival tone. We just need to work more with the promoter, he said. Its a balance that I know is difficult to manage.At 43 floats, the headlining parade on Saturday, sponsored by Captain Morgan Rum, has drawn criticism as being markedly shorter than in previous years.Yes, it was a bit less this year, said Pegi Fitton, assistant director of operations for Market Share, adding, but we tried to make it more creative.That involves working back and forth with the float designers, who pay an entrance fee between $75 and $150 depending on float configuration, plus additional charges for the number of people walking alongside. She said pacing of the parade this year was better than in the past. People say it wasnt very long but thats because there werent 20minute gaps.Noticeably absent from Fantasy Fest for the second year in a row was the Pretenders in Paradise costume showcase, formerly held at the Pier House Resort and Spa.The 2012 event was cancelled due to high winds from Hurricane Sandy. Then this past July, the independent resort was purchased by an out-of-state interest that didnt want to continue its sponsorship. Asked about a revival, Fitton said, I honestly dont know. Ian Whitney, president of the Key West Innkeepers Association, said criticism of the event is contrary to his observations and potentially based on secondhand perception. I saw so many creative costumes but when you look on Facebook, its just near nudity. On the popularity of unofficial events like the Zombie Bike Ride and Tutu Tuesday, People want to go to new events. I personally wish they would become official events because I think those are the type of events we want to market. To foster new events, Whitney suggested a scaled pricing program for venuespecific parties, making fees for earlier in the week leading up to the parade cheaper, thus lowering the barrier to entry and potentially bringing more and smaller businesses into the fold. following morning. Cost aboard a Metro II turboprop airplane is $449 round-trip. Each flight will be able to accommodate 10 people, including the pilot.Mamba Travel spokesman Isaac Valdes said on Tuesday that we just started advertising today and weve pretty much got the flight booked for that [first] date.On the Customs and Border Protection approval timeline, he said, We dont foresee any problems there. He added, Its going to be a historical day.Flights, expected to take between 30 minutes and 45 minutes each way, will originate from the fixed-base operator portion of the Key West airport where charters and private aircraft are maintained. There wont be any use of the terminals, Horton said. Still, the new flights dont mean anyone can just step up and buy a ticket to go to Cuba. Rather, the Office of Foreign Assets Control in the U.S. Department of the Treasury regulates travel to Cuba. Would-be visitors must obtain either a general or specific license to make the trip.A general license gives blanket authorization for the holder to engage in travel to Cuba for broad activities: Visiting close relatives who are either Cuban nationals or Americans working in Cuba for the U.S. government; official business; journalistic, educational or religious activities; professional research; and commercial marketing, sales negotiation, accompanied delivery or servicing in Cuba of telecommunications-related items, agricultural commodities, medicine or medical devices. A specific license is considered when the nature of the travel isnt covered by a general license.That includes visiting close relatives who arent nationals or government employees, freelance journalism, educational exchanges, academic seminars or conferences, athletic competitions, participation in a public performance, and humanitarian projects and research.For more information, visit www.airmarbrisa.com.Some hurdles still to goFrom Flights, 1A Wednesday, October 30, 2013 3A Keynoter KeysNet.com D ATTENTION VENDORS(non-food)Reserve your booth space Limited space available (305) 451-07812nd Annual Italian Festival Feb. 15 & 16 Canvassing of the BallotsCanvassing of the absentee ballots for the November 5, 2013, election will begin on Monday, November 4, 2013 at 10:00 a.m. at the Marathon Fire Station, 8900 Overseas Hwy, Marathon, Fl, and may continue day to day until the election has been certified.

She then lowered it to $800, then $600. Eventually the couple paid $320. Bracy told the patrol officer he wants the incident documented so he can lodge a formal complaint with city officials. Nelson photographed the artwork as potential evidence. In general, Fantasy Fest, with a theme of Superheroes, Villains and Beyond, featured only a few actual villains, city police spokeswoman Alyson Crean said. She described the weekend as mostly uneventful in terms of crime. Overall, Id say that the KWPD was well prepared for the event and it went off without a hitch, Crean said.Visitor, store owner spar over the costKEY WESTKeynoter StaffMasked woman busted for theftA Homestead woman donning a mask for the annual Fantasy Fest was arrested Sunday after allegedly stealing numerous items from four customers of the BottleCap Lounge in Old Town Key West. Johnesha Brown, 18, is charged with three felony counts of grand theft and is being held at the Monroe County Detention Center in lieu of $9,999 bond. Key West Police Officer Michael Wolf was called to the bar for the first time at 3:30 p.m. Sunday in response to a purse stolen off a table. I was able to view surveillance video, Wolf reports, that showed a heavyset female wearing a costume mask remove the purse from the table and leave the area. That may have been the end of it but about an hour later, Wolf was called back to the BottleCap, on Simonton Street, and met by owner Carmelo Vitale, who spotted Brown in the bar again and had her surrounded and held by angry victims. Vitale told Wolf he recognized Browns mask, build and long braided hair. Upon another review of surveillance footage, Wolf reports the tape clearly showed Brown sit down on the couch where the victims had been and begin surreptitiously collecting their belongings. Brown led police to her vehicle, which was parked nearby at the Gato Building. In the auto and in trees and bushes around it, Wolf says, were two purses, a passport, drivers licenses and other items taken from the bar. Tuesday, Brown had not yet had a court date set, according to the Monroe County Clerk of the Courts Office.Cops: Video clearly shows her stealingCRIME FRONTKeynoter Staff NEW BOARD The Key West Toastmasters, a group that promotes public speaking, has installed its 2013-14 board of directors.

Car flips over on Seven MileTwo people escaped injury when the car in which they were riding flipped on the Seven Mile Bridge Sunday night. The Florida Highway Patrol says David Rieser, 32, was driving the 2007 Impala and Patricia Coulter, 41, was a passenger. For some reason around 9:30 p.m. at mile marker 44 on the bridge, as the car was heading south, the car collided with the concrete traffic barrier with its right side, troopers said. The right side traveled up onto the wall. The vehicle came off the barrier wall and, still traveling southbound, rotated counterclockwise and overturned. Troopers didnt say where Rieser and Coulter are from.FKAA hosting sewer meetingKirk Zuelch, executive director of the Florida Keys Aqueduct Authority, will host a community meeting at 7 p.m. Nov. 4 on the Outer Island plan for the Cudjoe Regional sewer system at the Lower Keys Property Owners Associations clubhouse on Bogie Road on Big Pine Key. There will be a short question-and-answer period following the presentation. To bring smiles to military families who have lost so much, eight swimmers including active-duty Green Berets and wounded warriors will spend long hours in Florida Keys water on Veterans Day weekend. Its about helping kids who have lost their fathers get together, laugh and have a good time, said Gary Mace, local coordinator for the 50-kilometer Freedom Swim on Nov. 9 and 10. The first Freedom Swim raises money for the Gold Star Teen Adventures foundation, dedicated to improving the lives of children of special-operations service members who lost their lives in the line of duty. Mace, owner of Conch Republic Divers in Tavernier, began helping wounded military members learn to scuba dive in 2008. He began working with Kent Solheim, an 18-year U.S. Army veteran who remains on active duty after losing a leg to gunfire during a 2007 tour in Iraq. Solheim, part of the relay team swimming in Florida Bay off Islamoradas Founders Park, formed Gold Star Teen Adventures to help children whose family members did not return alive. Solheim realized he would have wanted for his children to know the caliber of men he had worked with, and wanted them to the have opportunity to be a part of unique and enriching experiences, said Cecilia Wolff, Gold Stars public-affairs coordinator. One of the groups first major events was a July trip to the Upper Keys, where teenagers and family members learned to scuba dive and swam with dolphins. One of the kids said that every time they get together with other Gold Star families, its a memorial or other somber event, Mace said. This was the first time they were able to laugh and be kids together. Money raised by swimmers through pledges in the 50K Freedom Swim will provide support for other dive trips in the Keys and Caribbean, survival-training camping in North Carolina and sailing off Texas. Backers aim to raise from $80,000 to $100,000. From 1 p.m. Nov. 10 to 1 p.m. Nov. 11, swimmers will alternate on a 400-meter course with the goal of swimming a total of nearly 32 miles in 24 hours. Residents are welcome to visit the swim, and some volunteers are needed. GO to www.gstadventures.org. Gold Star Teen Adventures is open to family members of fallen specialoperations personnel from the U.S. Army Special Forces (Green Berets), 75th Army Ranger Regiment, Marines and Air Force special operations, U.S. Navy SEALS and small-boat teams, among others.

Work included painting the Jaycees building.A CLEANER 33RD STREET Yaniz goes on curse-filled tiradeWhat started out as a politically charged incident last month at a meeting of the Rotary Club of Key West resulted in an expletive-ridden e-mail sent by City Commissioner Tony Yaniz to a constituent who is a former city employee. On Sept. 26, Mayor Craig Cates, against whom Yaniz has signaled he will run next year, was at the Rotary meeting at the Key West Marriott Beachside to discuss his push for a new 24-hour-a-day, seven-days-a-week homeless service center, to which Yaniz is adamantly opposed. When Cates presentation started, Yaniz and fellow Commissioner Mark Rossi walked out of the room.Yaniz who left the room walking out right behind Cates as the mayor spoke said he was offended by what he called the overtly political nature of Cates presentation, which he said conflicts with Rotarys sacrosanct socalled four-way test, which asks: Is it the truth; is it fair to all concerned; will it build goodwill and better friendships; and will it be beneficial to all concerned? After the meeting, Jim Fitton, a Rotarian and the citys former ports director, wrote to Yaniz that he was disappointed by his actions.From Fittons Sept. 28 email: After talking about Rotary not being political, you made a point of walking out on the mayors presentation, which was nothing but being political. I understand you and he have some issues but as my commissioner, I expect a more professional and respectful demonstration. What you did was clearly not in alignment with the [four]-way test. That set off Yaniz in a big way. He responded using his city e-mail address in part:Are you [expletive] kidding me! Mayor should not have been allowed to politicize the meeting! .... You have big balls taking issue with me walking out, by the way, so did Rossi. You have your priorities totally [expletive] up!If anyone violated the four way test it was the mayor and our Rotary Club for allowing him to do so. Are [you expletive] kidding me? If anyone [expletive] over the four way test it was our club, the mayor.... And obviously you for making the statement you just made. As for me... [expletive] the mayor for bringing politics into our club, [expletive] our club for not having the balls to tell the mayor to stop because they didnt want to embarrass him, and [expletive] you for having the unmitigated balls to call me out on this without thinking about who really violated the four way test! Fitton, noting that he never intended for [the exchange] to be made public, told the Keynoter I was taken aback by both the language and the tone. I supported Commissioner Yaniz for his seat and thought I could give him my honest feedback. I guess I was wrong. Jim Fitton and I go back over a decade, Yaniz said. We worked together in the trenches as Rotary volunteers. We played softball, drank a few beers and shared some BS. An issue came up which I felt was wrong and instead of giving me the benefit of the doubt, I felt he took a shot at me, and I replied in kind. He said he didnt intend to use his city e-mail account, rather a personal account, to send the message, but mistakenly did so.

Do not think the voters of Marathon are that naive. Then to think a local business would say we might have printed them possibly knowing the mailers were a fraud. Maybe Marathon residents should take notice of this, as well. Shame on all of them.

Ned Fisher MarathonSafety first on HalloweenHalloween is a special time for children, but children dont always know what is and is not safe. If your children are going trick-or-treating on Halloween, there are several tips to follow for their safety.Make sure they wear light-colored costumes with plenty of reflective tape so they are visible to cars and trucks. Take a flashlight along for added visibility.Look left, right and left again when crossing the street.Put electronic devices away so there are no distractions.If possible, have them go while it is still light outside.They should be accompanied by an adult or an older brother or sister.Enter homes only if youre with a trusted adult. Only visit well-lit houses. Dont stop at dark houses. Never accept rides from strangers.They should not sample candy given to them until it has been checked by an adult for possible tampering.Notify a deputy if suspicious or harmful items are found in your childs collection of treats.They should stay away from homes with dogs loose in the yard.Having a Halloween party is a good alternative to the tradition of trick-or-treating. It gives kids an opportunity to have a good time in a supervised and safe atmosphere.Tips for people driving on Halloween:Slow down and be especially alert in residential neighborhoods. Children are excited on Halloween and may dart in front of cars when crossing the street.Take extra time and look carefully for kids at intersections, on medians and on curbs.Enter and exit driveways slowly and carefully.Eliminate any distractions inside your car so you can concentrate on the road and your surroundings.Drive slowly, anticipate heavy pedestrian traffic and turn your headlights on earlier in the day to spot children from greater distances.Popular trick-or-treating hours are 5:30 to 9:30 p.m., so be especially alert for kids during those hours And a few tips for pet owners:Dont leave your pet out in the yard on Halloween. There are plenty of pranksters who will go out of their way to tease pets and you dont want your dog to bite a trick-or-treater who might venture too close.Trick-or-treat candy is not for pets: Chocolate is poisonous to many animals, and tin foil and cellophane candy wrappers can be hazardous if swallowed by your pet.Be careful your cat or dog doesnt dart out through the open door when you open it for trick-or-treaters. Becky Herrin Monroe County Sheriffs OfficePay attention to scienceAlthough pharmaceutical residues are polluting our tap water, utilities and regulators defend the safety of South Floridas drinking water. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency has decided to identify and measure these contaminants in water treatment plants across the nation. There are tens of thousands of chemicals in use in the United States. The EPA acknowledges that it does not know what harm these pollutants pose to human life. Regardless, these chemical threats are making their way into our drinking water. More than 100 pollutants from farm herbicides, factory solvents and human waste have shown up in Floridas tap water during the last five years. Twenty-five percent of these contaminants exceeded federal standards at least once, as documented by an environmental group. In addition, 11 to 17 chemicals were detected, some repeatedly and others occasionally, at levels above Environmental Protection Agency health guidelines. Assorted toxic substances such as cyanide, arsenic, radium and barium were also identified. A nationwide database shows that 316 chemicals have been detected in our drinking water. There are no federal or state standards for more than half of them. The number of chemicals detected in South Florida were roughly triple that of the national average. The Florida Department of Environmental Protection, which monitors drinking-water quality, said Florida has some of the highest-quality and safest drinking water in the United States. It said that to imply utilities are supplying unsafe drinking water is both irresponsible and simply not true. At one time science was founded upon truth. Acquired facts, details and evidence had to be replicable in order for any scientific experiment to be valid. Politicizing the scientific process is tearing the world apart. The sword will rule once reason and transparency depart. Sincerely, John Donnelly Key LargoSupport local businessesWe wish to take this opportunity to thank the great women (and even some men) for supporting the Angelika Boutique for the past 18 years. It is people that make a business successful and we have been fortunate to work with some of the best. While we are entering the world of retirement, the message we leave behind is for everyone to continue to support your local retail businesses, restaurants and services. When you support the chain operations, you help managers and chief executive officers purchase cars, boats and second homes (usually in foreign countries). But when you support your local business owners you help put food on their tables, pay a mortgage and assist their kids with lessons and further education. We also ask that you continue to support the local agencies like the Cancer Foundation of the Florida Keys, Visiting Nurse Association/Hospice of the Florida Keys, Habitat for Humanity, Zonta, Voices for Florida Keys Children and other religious, military and social awareness programs. We all work hard and the best reward is to take some of that success and pay it forward. Thanks to all for the support and for the fond memories. Blessings to everyone. Stuart and Lauren Sax IslamoradaReport was insensitiveRe: Saturdays story about the shooting in Islamorada in which a man died:When I got to the last two paragraphs of the report of the death of Bob Parlette, I was shocked to see that they contained a description of the house with Zillows estimate of its worth, the square footage along with the number of bedrooms and baths, what the previous sales price of it was, and what was parked under it. My friends and neighbors who live in the neighborhood and were friends of the deceased found this information to be totally inappropriate and tasteless. What did that information have to do with the tragic events of that day? Was this a real estate ad, a calling to all speculators? Shame on you. I hope the next tragedy you report on is handled with a little more sensitivity. Ann Elena IslamoradaConservative governor decides to accept federal Medicaid funds; Scott tried but failed hereEarlier this month, Ohio became the 25th state to decide that it would accept federal funding to expand Medicaid, giving more Americans health insurance coverage that they could not otherwise afford. The political courage displayed by Ohio Gov. John Kasich stands in marked contrast to Floridas failure to sign up for Medicaid expansion and the indecisiveness of Gov. Rick Scott. Like Scott, Kasich is a conservative Republican. He is the eighth Republican governor to oversee Medicaid expansion. The decision means Ohioans can enroll in Medicaid if they earn less than 138 percent of the federal poverty level. In accepting the federal funds, Kasich offered both a moral and practical justification for his action: A human being whos been blessed, helping a human being who has challenges, is a moral imperative in our lives. In other words, the state has an obligation to help those who need help, especially when, as in this case, the resources are available from the federal government. We get $14 billion of Ohio money back to Ohio to deal with some of the most serious problems, the Ohio governor said. Im not going to ignore the mentally ill, and Im not going to ignore the drug addicted or veterans or the very working poor people on my watch. None of this should be particularly controversial. Its about offering those who are among the most vulnerable the chance to have better health. Shouldnt that be a reasonable aim of good government? Now back to Florida. Scott, though opposing Obamacare, did the math and sided with Medicaid expansion here, a sensible move that would have returned an estimated $51 billion in federal funds to Florida over the next 10 years and created an estimated 120,000 new jobs. As a businessman and former hospital company CEO, Scott understood the bottom-line value of this deal for the Sunshine State. But when GOP lawmakers in Tallahassee balked and tea party conservatives growled, Scott blinked. In contrast to Kasich and some other staunch Republican governors across the country like Arizonas Jan Brewer, Scott did nothing to help Medicaid expansion. Florida is the poorer for this failure. This refusal to expand Medicaid hurts everyone in Florida, starting with the estimated 1 million poor and low-income residents who will not gain access to the state Medicaid program. Meanwhile, everyone else pays a hidden tax because hospitals are required to treat anyone seeking care who comes through their doors, whether they can pay or not. Rejecting Medicaid expansion raises the number of people seeking emergency care and the funding borne by taxpayers who support public hospitals. How long will it take Florida to wake up?

The agency says Parlette fire first.Food banks brace for cuts starting FridayFloridas food programs are bracing for cuts to the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) that kick in Friday while watching warily as U.S. House and Senate conferees prepare to negotiate a federal farm bill, which could have much more far-reaching consequences for hungry Floridians.Food banks and other programs that help Floridas 3.6 million food-insecure residents have known for years about the cuts. The cuts were built into the 2008 federal stimulus package that temporarily added money to SNAP, also known as food stamps, during the depths of the economic recession. But that wont make the cuts any easier, say advocates for the food banks and other supplemental programs. The cuts amount to $36 monthly for a family of four getting the maximum benefit of roughly $668.Thats going to be a significant hit for families, said Rebecca Brislain, executive director of the Florida Association of Food Banks. We already know SNAP doesnt last the whole month.The Florida Keys have several food banks, such as those at Burton Memorial United Methodist Church in Tavernier, through Keys Area Interdenominational Resources in Marathon and at St. Mary Star of the Sea Catholic Church in Key West.I dont think a lot of people realize just how low the SNAP benefit is, said Debra Susie, executive director of the anti-poverty group Florida Impact. In the state of Florida, the SNAP benefit per person per day is about $4.60.And thats before the monthly reductions that kick in Friday. The good news, said Brislain, is short-term: The states food banks have built their donor base and increased distribution since the recession began. Four years ago, they were collecting and distributing 72 million pounds of food a year; now, thats up to 173 million pounds a year. The United Way of the Florida Keys has made helping stock food banks among its priorities. But Brislain said the longterm problem is that Florida isnt recovering from the recession fast enough, and the states many low-paying jobs dont provide enough income to make ends meet. All it takes is what some people consider a small family crisis a flat tire, someone in the family getting sick anything can stretch the circumstances to the point they need extra help, she said. Theres no discretion on your rent. Food is the one area, unfortunately, that people can cut back on. Floridas food hardship rate is more than 21 percent, meaning that one in five Florida households reported that in the past year they struggled to buy enough food for the family.The state is one of the hardest-hit for food security, with six urban areas in the nations top 25 for food hardship in 2011-2012. Those areas are Orlando-Kissimmee, Lakeland -Winter Haven, Miami-Fort Lauder dale-Pompano Beach, Tampa-St. Petersburg-Clear water, Jacksonville and Cape Coral-Fort Myers.From June 2011 to June 2012, Florida saw the nations second-highest increase in SNAP use a rise of 9.7 percent. That fragility is why advocates for the food programs are watching nervously as the U.S. House and Senate prepare to negotiate further cuts to SNAP. Republicans contend the food-stamp budget should be cut by as much as $39 billion, the amount the GOP-led House included in its version of the federal farm bill in September. The Democraticled Senate passed cuts of about $4 billion. Now the two chambers will go into conference on the bill.The House also passed the so-called Southerland amendment, by U.S. Rep. Steve Southerland (R-Fla.), which includes work requirements. The House bill denies SNAP benefits to adults aged 18 to 50 who are not disabled, raising children, enrolled in training or working at least 20 hours per week.According to the Center on Budget and Policy Policies, the House bill would mean more than 400,000 Floridians could lose food assistance.What we have done in this country is wrong, Southerland said on the House floor last month. We have failed in introducing the blessing of work to able-bodied people who have the ability, who are mentally, physically, psychologically able to work, and we have robbed them of knowing a better life that they helped create for themselves and their families. The state has picked up some of the slack. The 2013 Legislature allocated $700,000 for supplemental nutrition programs a 75 percent increase, said state Rep. Ben Albritton (RWauchula), chairman of the House Agriculture & Natural Resources Appropriations Subcommittee.Keys have several that may be affectedBy MARGIE MENZELNews Service of FloridaSOCIAL SERVICES
The states 24 regional workforce boards and nearly 100 one-stop career centers will be renamed CareerSource, under a changeover authorized by the Florida Legislature. This affects South Florida Workforce, which has two offices in the Keys and is part of a Miami-Dade-Monroe regional board. Starting in 2014, the employment service agency for this region will be known as CareerSource South Florida. Chris Hart IV, president of Workforce Florida, says the rebranding will end confusion over different names used in different parts of the state. The Workforce South Florida career center in Key Largo is at 103400 Overseas Highway, Suite 239 (8533540). In Key West, the career center is at 1111 12th St., Suites 307-308 (2926762). The career centers offer job training and work through area employers, keep a listing of available jobs and offer career counseling and other services for clients seeking employment.

The state Office of Insurance Regulation on Wednesday said it rejected a proposed overall 1 percent increase in rates for 2014, though it would approve a 0.7 percent hike. The decision follows increases of 6.1 percent, 8.9 percent and 7.8 percent during the past three years. Those hikes came after major rate cuts stemming from a 2003 law that overhauled the workers-compensation system an overhaul that, even with a potential slight uptick in 2014, has resulted in a cumulative rate reduction of 56 percent, according to the Office of Insurance Regulation.Each year, the National Council on Compensation Insurance files rate proposals on behalf of workers-compensation carriers. Regulators, in an order dated Tuesday, rejected a proposed 1 percent increase for 2014 but said NCCI could file for a 0.7 percent hike that would be approved. Numerous factors go into workers-compensation filings, but Insurance Commissioner Kevin McCarty said in a prepared statement Wednesday that rates could go down as much as 8.3 percent in the future if tighter limits were placed on reimbursements for care at hospitals and ambulatory surgical centers.But such a proposal likely would touch off a legislative fight, as hospitals and other types of medical providers closely follow workers-compensation issues.Although a marginal rate increase is necessary [in 2014] for workers compensation insurance in Florida, the underlying factors causing the spike in rate increases over the last four years still merit legislative attention, McCarty said in the statement.Lawmakers during the 2013 session approved a compromise aimed at ending a long-running battle about the costs of drugs dispensed by doctors to workers-compensation insurance patients. Business groups argued that physician dispensing of what are known as repackaged drugs drove up insurance costs, while doctors and other groups contended the practice helps ensure patients get and take needed medications. The compromise involved some new limits on what doctors can charge for repackaged drugs, though the costs remain higher than what pharmacies are allowed to charge in the workerscompensation system.By JIM SAUNDERSNews Service of FloridaINSURANCEWorkforce rebrandsEMPLOYMENT The complete Florida Keys news and information source.

Cousteaus Keys mission postponed A 31-day stay in an underwater research laboratory in the Florida Keys by ocean explorer Jacques Cousteaus grandson has been postponed until the spring.Fabien Cousteau had planned to dive to the Aquarius Reef Base next month with a team of filmmakers and scientists. They planned to spend 31 days below the oceans surface, testing experimental equipment and conducting research on the underwater effects of climate change.Cousteaus privately funded Mission 31 now is planned for the spring. In a statement last week, Cousteau said the 16-day, partial shutdown of the U.S. government delayed film and science permits the mission requires.Aquarius sits about 60 feet below the oceans surface. Its owned by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration and managed by Florida International University.FIU spokeswoman Maydel Santana-Bravo has said running the base costs about $1.2 million a year. NOAA submerged Aquarius in 1993, and since then it has afforded scientists an opportunity to work for days in a natural underwater setting. The surrounding ocean floor is teeming with sea life. It is used to train specialized divers and astronauts. Scientists can live in Aquarius for days or weeks at a time. They can scuba dive up to nine continuous hours a day without needing to return to the surface to decompress. It is ideal for astronaut training, as well, because the undersea environment is similar to a low earth orbit.Aquarius is 400 square feet and has bunks and a kitchen.

Coral Shores High School tries to send its seniors out with a home victory Friday as the Hurricanes close the 2013 season.The Canes (7-2) also have a chance to post the best overall record for the program in years, but must survive a challenge from Archbishop Curley (4-5).Kickoff at George M. Barley Jr. Stadium in Tavernier is 7:30 p.m. Friday, following ceremonies to honor the squads seven seniors.The hardest thing to do in football is beat the same team twice, Hurricane head coach Ed Holly said. Curley has gotten better through the season, but so have we. It should be a great match-up. Coral Shores edged Curleys Knights, 21-13, Sept. 7 in Miami. Both teams went on to qualify for the championship playoff bracket of the Southeastern Football Conference, but both fell to their North division foes last week. Curley is coming off a 45-20 loss to Coral Springs Charter while the Canes were blanked by high-scoring John Carroll Catholic, 41-0. Our guys have overcome quite of bit of adversity this season so I know well have a good week of practice and be ready to play Friday, Holly said. With four runners racing to the best times of their careers, the Key West High School boys and girls crosscountry teams took second and third place, respectively, at Fridays District 16-2A meet at Larry and Penny and Thompson Park in Miami. The Conch teams along with Coral Shores Highs Steven Chadwick will advance to the Region 4-2A meet at 3 p.m. Thursday at Mills Pond Park in Fort Lauderdale.The Key West boys were second in an 11-team field with an average time in the 5K (3.1 miles) of 18 minutes, 16 seconds, only 16 seconds behind winner Ransom Everglades.Although Everett Wagner led the Conchs with a thirdplace finish in 17:21 44 seconds behind winner Gabriel Correa of Ransom it was the appropriately named Zachary Lightfoot who, according to coach Terence White, was the star of the day. Lightfoot finished sixth in a personal-best 18:02, ahead of teammates Jerry Burgess (14th, 18:23), Bobby Black (23rd, 18:50) and Steven Hobson (26th, 19:09). On the girls side, the Conchs were third out of nine teams (the top four advanced) in an average time of 21:55. They were led by Tristin Milliken, who finished fourth in 20:48 1:23 behind winner Daesha Rogers of Miami Jackson. A Conch girl had never finished as high at a district meet. The shocking statistic is that the girls beat their team record on that course by 55 seconds, White said. The next four Conch girls were Jane Welzien (15th, 21:43), Emily Good (19th), 21:53), Catherine Richardson (28th, 22:44) and Sahara Graft (29th, 22:47).

In the past week, this action has gotten more consistent relatively close to the reef in 100 to 120 feet of water. Ballyhoo is working best, but cigar minnows, pilchards and goggle eyes will also attract their attention.There have also been a decent number of dolphin taking the baits intended for the sails. Most are gaffer size in the 10to 15-pound class. And we should start to see steadier blackfin tuna action along the reef lines, especially on the artificial reefs toward Key West. In the Middle and Upper Keys, the blackfins at the humps are good sizes right now, with lots of fish in the 15to 20-pound category, taken mostly on live baits. The best reef action is on the shallow edge in 30 to 40 feet of water, where youll find keeper yellowtails and muttons in the slicks. There are increasing numbers of keeper-size black grouper in the same areas.The patches still hold plenty of mangroves and yellowtails along with the occasional keeper red and gag grouper. And the cero mackerel bite is improving. Live ballyhoo is the bait of choice, but pilchards also work.Fishing around the bridges is very good, with plenty of rod-bending action on both fun fish and eating fish.Marauding schools of jack crevalle are there ready and willing to eat just about any offering. Theyre a blast to catch on light tackle and can often be caught on top-water plugs to add to the excitement. These fish average 8 to 10 pounds, with intermittent larger specimens.The eating fish at the bridges include mangroves, muttons, porgy and hogfish.

The weeks bestCapt. Greg Poland fished the Flamingo area with anglers visiting from Johannesburg, South Africa. Using live shrimp on light spin tackle, they caught their first redfish and snook. Poland expects this fishing to improve with the cooling water temps.Capt. T.J. Yzenas, of Island Lure Charters out of Captain Hooks in Marathon, fished groups from the northeast and Germany. Yzenas reports the reef produced some nice yellowtails and mangroves if you got them past the sharks and says the best fishing was when the winds picked up and they stayed close to shore.Capt. Ariel Medero, of Big Game Sportfishing out of the Hammocks in Marathon, put his anglers on tuna, wahoo, sailfish and dolphin on the troll as well as live bait. Randy, from Illinois, caught a 30-pound wahoo on the troll early in the morning in about 180 feet of water. Medero also reports the mangrove, mutton and yellowtail bite on the shallow reef has been great.Roberto Dey and his son, Lucas, visiting Captain Pips Marina and Hideaway from Argentina, had a great day aboard the Papa Pips with Capt. Zach Willis. They caught a nice bunch of snapper, including a good-size mutton.The Densmore group, from Baton Rouge and Rootstown, Ohio, fished two days aboard the Klimax with Capt. Chris Klimas. The first day, they raised three sailfish, had a double on and landed one. They caught dolphin on the second outing and lost a couple of wahoo right at the boat. A windy-day outing to the bay on the Klimax produced keeper red grouper, mangroves and jack crevalle. And the Finley group, from Cincinnati, had a blast catching and releasing 11 big lemon sharks with me on the SeaSquared. Capt. Moe Mottice and his fellow captains, of Moes Custom Charters in Key West, put their inshore anglers on snapper, with tarpon and mackerel mixed in. On the flats, sharks, barracudas and ladyfish ate hard and pulled fast. And offshore, the tuna, bonito and a couple of dolphin ate trolled ballyhoo. Capt. Chris Johnson is a member of the Yamaha National Fishing Team and specializes in offshore, gulf/bay, reef/wreck, shark and tarpon fishing with SeaSquared Charters out of Porkys Bayside Marina in Marathon.

Again, though, it was disallowed. Officials said Sam Gravelines kick didnt go the required 10 yards.It went 13, said Key West coach Johnny Hughes. Three of the referees ruled it was our ball, but the head referee said the ball hadnt gone 10 yards. Unfortunately, it took our momentum away.As he had the week before, WKWF broadcaster Judd Wise went berserk: Unbelievable! Youve got to be kidding me! This is two weeks in a row! Things got more bizarre.Because of penalties and kicks that went out of bounds, Graveline had to kick off three more times until, finally, the Warriors had the ball on the Key West 45. Immediately, they scored from there for a 14-6 lead just before the end of the first quarter.Westminster took a 28-6 lead into halftime after two TD runs by Jordan Conkrite. The Warriors scored early in the third quarter on a fiveyard run by 274-pound Mathew Lynch, and, after a Key West fumble, scored again on a 38-yard pass from Hunter Boyett to Devonaire Clarington to make it 42-6, a score that necessitated a running clock.The Conchs, who were led by Mehki Sargent (102 yards), got to the Westminster 33 late in the game before being stopped on fourth down. The Warriors then scored their seventh TD as time wound down on a 70yard run by Cronkite. To get to 50 points, they added a two-point conversion.Add salt to the wound, Wise announced.Hughes maintained Mon day that the game would have been closer if the Conchs were at full strength. When you lose so many guys, its tough, he said. Our defensive line is decimated by injuries. Im on my fifth nose guard.Jack Gruba, the soul of the defense, played with a club on his broken hand until he had to leave the game not because of the hand but because he hurt his thigh.Time running out for ConchsFrom Key West, 1B Good and Graft ran in personal-best times, but Grafts was the most noteworthy. Grafts time was dramatically lower than the 25:38 and 24:32 she recorded in her two regular-season races at Thompson Park. She came out of nowhere, Id never seen her focused like that, said White, adding that, without her performance, the team might not have finished in the top four. Wagner, Lightfoot, Burgess, Milliken and Welzien all won medals for finishing in the top 15, as did Coral Shores Chadwick, who was 12th in 18:21. The Hurricane boys Chadwick, Rex Zimmer man (19:31), Pablo Gonzalez-Quevedo (20:01), Kenneth Stokes (20:54) and Bernard Lietaert (22:08) were seventh. The Coral Shores girls ended their season by finishing ninth. Ivy Summers was 40th in 24:17, followed by Chloe Stokes (24:48), Darian Gibson (25:14), Marissa Bogue (26:08) and Kyia Herlth (29:57).Runners hope to advanceFrom Running, 1B went out into the cool air, headed for their Back Yard field, where the lights were just going on.An hour later, before a bigger-than-expected crowd, the game got under way. Five minutes in, Conch keeper Angela Martin strayed from the goal, and Jensen Beach scored. Get back in your goal, let the defenders defend, Paul yelled.Soon it was 2-0, causing Paul to pace on the dark running track behind the team bench. Then Martin fumbled a shot and it was 3-0. The Conchs went on to lose, 6-2, their only goals scored by the speedy senior forward Caila DeAbreu. Key West had played without top defender Selyne Casas, who was in jeans on the sideline because of an injured knee. Asked what it was like to only be able to watch, she said, Horrible. The Conchs open the season at 6 p.m. this Friday against Coral Springs Charter at the Back Yard.DeAbreu scores both goalsFrom Conchs, 1B Gros wins the Light TackleSusan Gros from The Villages in Central Florida made it a trifecta, winning for the third time the International Womens Fishing Associa tions Light Tackle Tour nament in Islamorada that ended Oct. 23.She previously won in 1998 and 2008.Part of the format of the tournament, in the backcountry and which started Oct. 20, is a random drawing for whom each woman would fish with each day. So every day, each woman fished with a different partner, but that is not to say they were teammates.Teammates equate to three women that are also drawn randomly. At the end of the third day, point totals are tallied for each member of a team and the team with the most points wins. The winning team was Gros, Joan Kelley from Key West and Hazel Basnight from Manteo, N.C. Kelley also was second overall. Following are complete results:Gros, first, 3,265 points.Kelley, second, 2,855 points.Aledia Tush from Sarasota, third, 2,760 points.Top fly angler: Kelley.Top artificial angler: Tush.Top bait angler: Susan Coleman from Warrenton, Va.ISLAMORADA FISHING
When Daylight Saving Time ends at 2 a.m. Sunday and clocks fall back one hour, many people will embrace the extra hour of sleep. But for some people, the change in his or her sleep cycle can actually trigger sleep troubles, says Mariners Hospital in Tavernier. One of three Americans have a sleep disorder that causes problems in falling asleep, sleeping through the night or staying awake during the day, hospital staff says. That lack of sleep can make people grumpy and foggy. It can also negatively impact memory, mood, judgment, appearance and health. Lack of sleep may be responsible for poor performance in everyday activities such as work and school performance. According to Faye Sturges, manager of the Mariners Sleep Lab, a sleep disorder, such as sleep apnea, can greatly affect quality of life and lead to health conditions like diabetes, obesity, heart attack and stroke. Many people are not aware of how debilitating the lack of sleep can be, Sturges said. Good sleep promotes good health. When you sleep well, youre motivated to exercise, eat healthier and do the things you love to do. Although the amount of necessary sleep varies from person to person, experts agree that most people need between seven and nine hours of sleep each night. Studies show that an increased risk for disease begins when people get less than six or seven hours of deep sleep. Following good sleep hygiene not only can ease the transition when the clocks change; it is essential to getting deep, restorative sleep you can count on, night after night. The most important sleep hygiene measure is to maintain a regular sleep and wake pattern seven days a week. Sturges and other sleep experts also recommend the following good sleep hygiene practices:Exercise regularly. Vigorous exercise is best before evening time.Avoid eating right before bedtime.Avoid caffeine, nicotine and alcohol close to bedtime.Increase exposure to natural light during the day to help maintain a healthy sleep-wake cycle.Boost melatonin production at night by dimming lights and turning off your television and computer.Avoid long naps and napping after 3 p.m. Anything more than a 20minute catnap can disturb the normal pattern of sleep and wakefulness. Establish a regular relaxing bedtime routine, which may include taking a warm bath, reading or listening to calming music.Use your bedroom only for sleep. It may help to remove work materials, computers and televisions from your bedroom.Create a good sleep environment one that is quiet, dark and cool with a comfortable mattress and pillows.Save your worries for the daytime. If a concern comes to mind, write it down so you can address the issue the next day.Move to another room or do something relaxing until you feel tired if you are having trouble sleeping.If you are experiencing excessive snoring or daytime sleepiness or you stop breathing during your sleep, contact your healthcare professional for a sleep disorder screening.Mariners Sleep Diagnostic Services can help physicians diagnose and treat a variety of sleep problems, including sleep apnea, insomnia, periodic leg movement syndrome and narcolepsy.A sleep disorder test is performed as you sleep in a quiet, private and comfortable environment. The overnight sleep study or polysomnogram measures brain waves, heartbeat, eye movements, muscle tension, leg movements, respiratory effort, airflow and blood oxygen levels. The test results help doctors determine diagnose your specific sleep disorder and the best treatment for you. Resolving a sleep problem is a life-changing experience for many patients, Sturges said.

Over the years that family fun has grown to include our pets. From Halloween pet parades, costumes, specialty toys and other themed pet products this tradition is fun for everyone including our favorite furries.However, not all companion animals embrace the loud noises, scary gestures and costumes that come with the holiday, so the Pet Industry Joint Advisory Council is sharing some tips to help keep pets safe and secure over the holiday.Noise such as constant doorbell ringing and door knocking may stress your pets. Find a quiet room in the house with food, water, litter box or crate and bring them out after its all over.Candy and candy wrappers can be toxic to pets. Never leave candy unattended, or within reach, of your cat or dog. Chocolate is toxic to pets and foil and Cellophane wrappers, if ingested, will cause havoc on the animals digestive tract which could result in surgery or death.Animal cruelty increases every Halloween. Leading up to Halloween, and Halloween itself, keep your pets especially your black cats (white cats, too) indoors to reduce the possibility of harmful pranks or acts of animal cruelty.Jack-O-Lanterns and other decorations with flames are dangerous around unpredictable pets. Cats and dogs have been known to knock over lighted candles that have resulted in home fires. Consider flameless candles as part of your decor and try to eliminate as many electrical cords as possible to prevent chewing.Leash your animals if they will be outdoors to prevent them from running in front of cars or running away and make sure they are properly tagged and microchipped if they do get away.Animal costumes can restrict a pets vision, movement and/or hearing make sure it does none of those.Running, chasing, quick movements by trick-ortreaters toward animals, or their owners, may be perceived as an aggressive action by a pet. Discourage children from conducting this way to avoid an altercation. Better yet, if your dog appears to be agitated, keep your pet inside and away from children.According to 2013 statistics, the National Retail Federation says that 15 percent of Americans will dress their companion animals in costumes. At PIJAC, our primary concerns involve pet safety as well as encouraging the most positive experiences between pet owners and their pets, say Mike Canning, president & CEO.Not all animals enjoy being in costumes as much as some pet owners enjoy seeing them in costume, he said. According to the Pet Poison Hotline, calls increased in 2011 by 21 percent, many of which were related to chocolate consumption by pets. If your pet ingests candy, or other toxic substances, consult your veterinarian, local animal emergency Hospital or call the Pet Poison Helpline at (800) 2136680, which operates 24/7. There is a $39 per incident fee that covers the consultation and follow-up calls.
