Rick Scott last week to reexamine a threatened "funding formula" change for Early Learning Coalition school readiness programs state-wide. ELC of Miami-Dade and Monroe Counties Director Evelio Torres told the Keynoter that the initial formula meant shifting more than $22 million in funding for Miami-Dade and Keys children to other areas of the state over the next six years. "The Governor's office will establish a work group that includes child advocates and some members of the legislature, as well as child care providers," he said. "It's going to be a much more thorough process and there will be an opportunity for public input and debate, which was missing. The Governor did exactly what needed to be done." According to the ELC website, school readiness programs are "designed to prepare children for school, particularly those from incomeeligible families. These programs are intended to serve as a preventive measure for children at risk of future school failure." The cut this year alone was $3.7 million, of which $206,920 came from Monroe County providers. Atotal of $1.62 million over six years would be cut from a long list of approved providers in Monroe County. One such provider is the Kreative Kids Christian Academy at New Life Church in Marathon. Director Karen MacCrory told the Keynoter 31 kids ages 6-8 show up each day after school many of whom come from low-income families and are looked after until around 5:30 p.m. "Come 3:30 [p.m.], instead of dropping them off here, they're probably going to be dropping them at home," MacCrory said, referring to the impact of threatened funding cuts in Monroe. According to the ELC of Miami-Dade and Monroe Counties, there are 20 approved child care centers in the Keys, as well as 28 "family child care homes," where a licensed caretaker looks after children in their home. There are also four afterschool programs funded with school readiness dollars, including ones operated by the U.S. Navy and MonroeScott asks to reassess formula that cost Keys early learning fundingSCHOOL READINESSBy RYAN MCCARTHYrmccarthy@keynoter.comSee Learning,5AHAPPY HOLIDAYS Keynoter photo by TODD SWIFTSanta's Workshop was one of dozens of Holiday Parade entries in Key West's annual holiday extravaganza,held Saturday night,which included motorized floats,marching units,antique cars and lots of elves and Santas with and without beards.Check out more parade photographs at: www.KeysNet.com/PHOTOS .Big money sure draws a crowdAFlorida Keys committee to oversee penalty settlements from the BPDeepwater Horizon oil spill started to take shape Tuesday. Aspecial meeting of the Monroe County Com-mission in Marathon attracted officials from most of the county's five municipalities. "When you talk about this kind of money, it draws a crowd," said commission Mayor George Neugent. That could range anywhere from $5.8 million to more than $23 million to be used locally, depending on the size of the final BP settlement, consultant Peggy Mathews told commissioners. Fines paid by BPto settle violations from massive 2010 spill in the Gulf of Mexico have been estimated at anywhere from $5 billion to $20 billion, Mathews said. The federal RESTORE Act standing for the Resources and Ecosystems Sustainability, Tourist Opportunity and Revived Economies Act for the Gulf states directs a significant share of the fines from the BP spill to areas affected by the spill. Without the act, all the fine money would have gone to the general federal treasury. Monroe County belongs to the Florida Gulf Consortium, representing 23 Gulf Coast counties. Florida has a formula for allocating the money to Gulf Coast counties. Panhandle counties where the spill blackened beaches will receive most of the state allocation to spur projects thatBP money to Keys could be millionsFLORIDA KEYS Hemingway's six-toed cats face the fedsThe clowder of cats living at 907 Whitehead St. in Key West, all descended from a polydactyl kitten named Snowball gifted 75 years ago to Nobel winning novelist Ernest Hemingway, are poised to become the subject of federal regulation. That's per an opinion issued Monday by the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 11th Circuit, upholding previous court rulings, which essentially found that because the cats are used in materials promoting the Hemingway House and Museum, they have an impact on interstate commerce. Following from that, the six-toed felines are subject to regulation by the U.S. Department of Agriculture this barring a successful appeal. And any such appeal would have to be argued before the U.S. Supreme Court. In 1961, Bernie Dixon purchased the Hemingway house and property, which came with the cats, from Hemingway's estate and opened it to tours in 1964. Dixon's great nephew Michael Morawski runs the tour operation now. The legal wrangling began in October 1993 when neighbor and former Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals Vice President Debra Schultz filed a complaint with the USDAalleging the cats weren't being cared for properly. With the court finding, the USDAcan routinely inspect the property and animals; require construction of elevated platforms and enclosures; and levy fines if the museum is found in vio-11th Circuit rules against Key West tour operatorKEY WEST Nobel winning novelist Ernest Hemingway lived in Key West in the 1930s,where his now famous six-toed cats all descended from a polydactyl kitten named Snowball.By SEAN KINNEYskinney@keynoter.com By KEVIN WADLOWSenior Staff Writer kwadlow@keynoter.comSee BP,2ASee Cats,3A

Michael Dennis, 67, and Graciela Lozano, 48, agreed to plea no contest to misdemeanor charges of battery and trespassing in an occupied structure. As punishment, Dennis and Lozano agreed to serve 45 days in jail; one year of probation; and pay around $17,000 in restitution, court fines and fees. Toppino, 69, previously agreed to plea to the same charges and serve a 120-day jail term; one year of probation; and pay around $56,000 in restitution. The trio on July 19, 2011, allegedly went to an apartment at 1719 Thompson St., which Lozano manages, to evict tenant Angel Roman. Toppino had in his pocket a .38-caliber Ruger handgun with six bullets one in the chamber and a backup magazine in his pocket; Dennis wielded a baseball bat. When Roman answered the door, the group allegedly rushed in and started beating him. Lozano was charged with burglary with assault, Dennis with burglary with assault while armed with a dangerous weapon and Toppino with burglary with assault while carrying a firearm the most serious charge (which carried a potential sentence of life imprisonment). Prosecuting Assistant Monroe County State Attorney Mark Wilson said Dennis and Lozano were sentenced on Monday by Circuit Court Judge Mark Jones and immediately began the probationary term. Dennis will turn himself in on Jan. 9, followed by Lozano on Feb. 15, Wilson said. Toppino, who is recovering from surgery to fix a rotator cuff injury, is up for sentencing on Dec. 18.Dennis,Lozano will also serve some jail timeKEY WEST TOPPINOLord-Papy asks to rescind salary cutFlorida Keys Mosquito Control Commissioner Joan Lord-Papy, in her final meeting as an elected official, is proposing to rescind a salary cut for commissioners that it turns out apparently never happened. Lord-Papy, who's retiring after 20 years on the board, is asking to "return commissioner salaries to 2011-12 levels." But according to district Comptroller Bill Southcott, they're at 2011-12 levels now. The board voted in August 2011 to remove a $2,400 housing allowance paid to all other employees, but that cut was effective for the fiscal year 2011-12. That means commissioners' salaries $21,438 for non-officers and $22,038 for the treasurer and chairman are the same in fiscal year 2012-13 as they were the previous year. This summer, the board did discuss, but never voted on, an additional 10 percent salary cut during fiscal year 2012-13 budget discussions. Lord-Papy did not return a call Tuesday seeking clarification on her agenda item for Friday's meeting, which begins at 10 a.m. at the district office on 107th Street in Marathon. Other commissioners were apparently under the impression that the 10 percent pay cut happened. Chairman Jack Bridges said he's been telling constituents the cut was made and plans to rectify the situation come January. "When we make an error at Mosquito Control, we will fix it. It is too late to put anything new on the agenda for Friday's meeting; however, I will propose at the January meeting that we amend the budget to reflect the pay cut many, if not all, of us have been touting," he wrote in an e-mail to the Keynoter. Bridges said he sent an email to Southcott Tuesday requesting that he "immediately cut my salary by 10 percent retroactively to October 1." Meanwhile, as Lord-Papy proposes to enhance commissioner compensation, Commissioner Phil Goodman is asking employees including commissioners to contribute $50 per month toward their benefit package. "I brought this up several times over the last six months and I just believe that in the private sector people pay more and more. The costs are skyrocketing. In Mosquito Control no one pays for their own insurance. Beneficiaries pay some, but employees are fully paid by Mosquito Control," Goodman said. Bridges said he plans to support Goodman's idea. At her final meeting on Skeeter BoardMOSQUITO CONTROLspur economic or environmental improvements. But even a slice of $20 billion could prove significant. Neugent, the county's primary representative on the Consortium, said Tuesday that references to Monroe County's share of the fines actually includes all of the Keys municipalities as well. "We're all working together to include everyone in this process," he said. "How much detail do we need to get into when there's still so much uncertainty?" wondered Com-missioner Heather Car-ruthers. John Wayne Smith, a lobbyist for the Florida Association of Counties, said the local governments need to be ready to react quickly as the settlements take shape. Citing concerns about "double" Sunshine Law coverage people who would be covered as part of the local spill committee and by other board membership the county commission at first voted to exclude elected officials. That was then repealed due to objections. "In Key Colony Beach, we have five elected commissioners and three department heads," said city commissioner John DeNeale. "When you take out five commissioners, there's almost nobody left." Members of the committee should have expertise in business, tourism, natural resources and other key areas, consultants and county staff said. "Monroe County is in a very unique position in that projects to improve water quality or habitat restoration could benefit the entire Gulf Coast," Mathews said.

"Good Hope" died unexpectedly on Oct. 2, over a month after being airlifted to Marathon from the U.S. Virgin Islands. The turtle was named after a beach in St. Croix, where she was discovered severely injured after Tropical Storm Isaac hit there in late August. The eggs were incubated for more than 60 days by Turtle Hospital staff, but to no avail. "The female can lay eggs whether they've been fertilized or not. The most likely reason they didn't hatch was they weren't fertilized," Turtle Hospital Manager Bette Zirkelbach said. Zirkelbach said Jeanette Wyneken, a professor at Florida Atlantic University and expert in sea turtle biology, made the final determination on the eggs. "Dr. Wyneken examined Good Hope's eggs and determined that they were not viable. There was no sign of development in the eggs. She said that we...cared for the eggs well and went on to say that our incubation room resembled her lab where she incubated eggs successfully this past summer," she said. Turtle Hospital staff did everything possible to care for the eggs, even having sand flown in from St. Croix, where the eggs "were nestled and kept firm and moist." "Clutches of Good Hope's eggs buried in St. Croix sand were incubated for over 60 days. Turtle Hospital staff monitored the sand temperature and moisture level daily with hope that Good Hope's legacy would live on by way of hatchlings," Zirkelbach said. Good Hope had been responding well to treatment and was set to undergo surgery to repair eyelid damage when she was discovered dead by hospital staff. The turtle had been laying eggs and local veterinarian Doug Mader harvested the remaining 58 eggs after she died. Hawksbill eggs prove not viable after harvestMARATHON Dr.Doug Mader harvested 58 eggs from the dying hawksbill turtle flown to Marathon from the U.S.Virgin Islands. By RYAN MCCARTHYrmccarthy@keynoter.comlation. From the opinion: "The museum's exhibition of the cats substantially affects interstate commerce. The museum argues that its activities are of a purely local nature because the Hemingway cats spend their entire lives at the museum." But, "It is well-settled that when local businesses solicit out-of-state tourists, they engage in activity affecting interstate commerce. The museum invites and receives thousands of admissions-paying visitors from beyond Florida, many of whom are drawn by the museum's reputation for and purposeful marketing of the Hemingway cats." There are currently around 45 cats living on the property; the majority are spayed or neutered to control the resident population.Museum markets unique catsFrom Cats,1A 24.99Dewars Scotch12 Year, 750 ml12.99Canadian LTD1.75 L15.99Pinnacle VodkaSelected Varieties, 1.75 L10.99Crystal Palace Vodka1.75 L15.99Cruzan RumSelected Varieties, 1.75 L25.99Hennessy VS750 mlPRICE WITH COUPON18.99Crown Royal750 ml (Sale Price Without Coupon Below ... 20.99)24.99Grey Goose VodkaSelected Varieties, 750 mlPRICE WITH COUPON26.99Tanqueray Gin1.75 L (Sale Price Without Coupon Below ... 28.99)28.99Johnnie Walker Red Label1.75 L26.99Woodford Reserve Bourbon750 ml26.99Cointreau750 ml16.99Malibu Coconut Rum1.75 L12.99Kentucky Gentleman1.75 L23.99Milagro Silver TequilaOr Reposado, 750 mlPRICE WITH COUPON31.99Ketel One Vodka Selected Varieties, 1.75 L (Sale Price Without Coupon Below ... 33.99) MANUFACTURERS COUPON | EXPIRES 12/31/12Oer valid only to resident s of legal purchase age on purchases made in: FL To the Consumer: Must be redeemed at time of purchase.

Local restaurateur Chris Schultz The Porch and 2 Cents came up with the concept, teamed up with Joe Walsh Mangoes, Caroline's, Jack Flats, Fogarty's and Red Fish Blue Fish and in July got Key West City Commission approval to go forward with the Caroline Street development. On Wednesday the Key West Bight Management Board, which oversees all leases in the bight area, will consider an amendment to the proposed brewery lease, essentially agreeing to front $2 million in construction costs that would be paid back with interest. The lease term is 20 years, at a base rate of $397,782 per year, plus a portion of operating revenue once the business opens, for the 18,942 square foot building. The $2 million in capital funding will draw interest of $972,586 over the life of the lease. In the early 1990s, the bight, running from Trumbo Point down Caroline Street and around to the end of Greene Street, was going through a rocky transition from decades as a commercial fishing hub into an uncertain future of dwindling business and blight. Now, there's a harbor walk and signs that tout the historic working-waterfront element. There are also diverse restaurants and bars, retail stores and attractions that have one thing in common: They pay rent to the city. That's because beginning in 1996, city officials created the Community Redevelopment Agency to oversee the bight, Caroline Street and, non-contiguously, parts of Bahama Village. The city's Senior Property Manager Marilyn Wilbarger picked up on the bight's redevelopment history as supporting the $2 million investment. "When reviewing the original intent of the city's acquisition of the Key West Bight, it was noted that the purpose for buying the property was to preserve the public access to the waterfront [and] preserve the historic maritime character while making sure that the property produces sufficient income, all of which have been successful to date. To jump-start brewery at Waterfront KEY WESTAudit committee debates HOB savings'Recent questions and criticisms about cost savings going to the Monroe County School District's contractor on the Horace O'Bryant Middle School rebuild boiled over last week at a meeting of the advisory Audit and Finance Committee. Last month then AFC Chairman Stuart Kessler the gavel has since passed to Roger McVeigh issued a written report to the School Board suggesting that a six-figure change order circumvented the board's own approval policy. Contract project manager Bill Sprague, at a Dec. 3 AFC meeting in Marathon, vehemently defended his accounting of more than $600,000 in savings on the $40 million project. The contract called for a 60-40 split of any savings, giving $243,502 to Coastal and $365,253 for the school district. "The intent was this money had been approved by the board. This was not us going out and saying we're going to take [money] we didn't have already and commit it," Sprague said. Kessler pointed out that board policy and Florida statute dictates that any change orders in excess of $25,000, barring particular emergency scenarios, go to the board for a vote. That never happened with the change order associated with the cost savings split. Sprague, at one point, suggested bypassing the whole issue by altering the name from "change order" to "external revision. If the contract read 180 degrees opposite of what it reads now, you would have no idea what they're saving." "That's the scariest thing I've ever heard," Kessler remarked. Longtime schools watchdog and newly minted District 3 board member Ed Davidson was in attendance and made his presence and opinion felt throughout the session. Davidson called Sprague's suggestion that every dollar alteration be approved by board members would cause delays to the project timeline "scare tactics." "Highly qualified people should be able to deal with, in advance, problems that are impending," Davidson said. Speaking of board policies, he added: "What isn't there is that folks involved have the authority to use money as they see fit. "Any change of more than $25,000 has to come to the School Board as a matter of policy. Changes inside the total are nonetheless changes to the contract." McVeigh quickly stepped in to note that Davidson's opinion as a board member wasn't reflective of the board's cumulative opinion and simply an "interpretation." The highlight of the meeting came when McVeigh and Kessler began arguing about whether $25,000 change orders explicitly invoke board review. "There's two sides to that coin," McVeigh said in reference to his interpretation argument. "No there's not, Roger," Kessler came back. "It's a statute, Roger." "That's your opinion," McVeigh shot back, voice elevated, then really pushing his point home through repetition said, "The board may, the board may, the board may, the board doesn't have to, the board may" approve change orders in excess of $25,000. Superintendent Mark Porter has said no savings money will be divided until after construction is completed, expected by July.Contractor claims share of $600k already authorizedOUR SCHOOLS LESLIE LEOPOLD 305-942-0215 Exceptional Properties...

Currently, none of the seven Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission board members have direct ties to the Florida Keys. "The FWC is like the Public Service Commission for commercial and recreational fishing," said Mike Puto, a former Monroe County Commissioner and Marathon city manager who sent an application to Gov. Rick Scott. "Monroe County is a major seafood producer and fishing destination," Puto said. "There's all this going on here." Bruce Popham, Marathon Boat Yard owner and former chairman of the Florida Keys National Marine Sanctuary Advisory Council, also sent a resume to Tallahassee. So did Bill Kelly, who works as executive director of the Florida Keys Commercial Fishermen's Association and has represented the Islamorada Charter Boat Association in marine regulatory issues. "It's my understanding that the governor has expressed interest in having somebody from Monroe County on the commission," Popham said. Rodney Barreto, a Miami-Dade County resident who has property in the Keys, served as FWC chairman over a decade before stepping down. "There's been no one from Monroe County since Rodney Barreto so I hope that's something the governor considers," Puto said. "I've lived in the Keys most of my life, I'm a boat owner and recreational fisherman, and I know the issues that commercial fishermen face." Popham said his work with the Keys sanctuary and in-depth knowledge of the marine industry could be useful. Kelly sharpened his expertise on fishing regulatory issues while working as a charter captain, and now rarely misses an FWC meeting to speak on behalf of the commercial industry. The Governor's Office could not say at press time how many applications for the FWC board have been received, of if any other Keys residents have sent applications. No deadline for naming new members has been announced, but could happen early in 2013 so the members could be confirmed by the Florida Senate this spring. Three members of the current FWC board Chairman Kenneth Wright of Winter Park, Vice Chair Kathy Barco of Jacksonville and Ron Bergeron of Fort Lauderdale finished their first five-year terms in August and remain on the board on an interim basis. "All three have expressed interest in being reappointed," an FWC spokesman said. Richard Corbett of Tampa finishes his second term in January, and has not requested to be reappointed. The FWC oversees an agency that employees nearly 2,100 employees to manage saltwater and freshwater fishing, hunting and animal protection, and wildlife and fisheries research.

Wesley H ouse Family S ervices is the go-through local agency for state EL C funding. Ex ecutive Director Doug B lomberg told the Keynoter that funding cuts in M onroe have meant growing wait lists for care up and down the Keys. The result could be an increase in what B lomberg referred to as latch k ey chil-dren, meaning those ages 6 8 who are going home to an empty house after school because there are no other options. Any time we cannot provide enough either preor after-school care we have a ris k of children being at ris k of neglect and or becoming latchk ey children because they re not properly supervised, he said. B lomberg said school readiness funding in M onroe County supports almost 7 00 k ids. It involves children ages 0-8. We had a reduction in funding in J uly. When we institute a wait list that means the last ones we ll serve are ages 6 -8, he said. The bottom line, according to Torres, is that moving funding out of the Keys would leave a lot of lesser-income families with difficult decisions.

M onday, the U S Attorney s O ffice said William B ritt, 55, of Key West is additionally charged with possession of material involving the se x ual e x ploitation of minors and with illegal possession of a firearm. H e made his initial appearance M onday in Key West before U S M agistrate L urana S now. U S Attorney Wilfredo Ferrer said that B ritt possessed multiple videos containing child pornography. H e also possessed a short-barreled shotgun, which was not registered as required by federal law. If convicted, B ritt faces a possible statutory ma x imum sentence of up to 10 years in prison on the charges. B ritt had been held at the M onroe County Detention Center but records show he s no longer there, indicating he is now in federal custody. The investigation involved the M onroe County S heriff s O ffice ; F B I ; H omeland S ecurity ; and the B ureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms. In early N ovember, B ritt was charged locally with 1 2 3 counts of possessing child pornography and seven counts of possessing a photograph of a se x ual performance by a child. At the time, the S heriff s O ffice said B ritt came to the agency s attention after his former landlord saw child porn in a bo x as he was helping B ritt move out of his Cud j oe Key home. The landlord called police. B ritt was arrested following a search of his recreational vehicle, par k ed at the U S N avy s S igsbee P ar k where he reportedly moved. In it, police said, detectives found the child porn along with the sawed-off shotgun, as well as a loaded handgun.

At this very moment, the administration and Congress are trying to limit or do away with the charitablededuction tax credit. We can ill afford this measure. The Good Health Clinic is one of the few charitable nonprofit organizations that receives absolutely no funds from the state or federal governments. We rely heavily on charitable donations to support the critical work we do on a daily basis. The current charitable-deduction structure has been an effective strategy for incentivizing support for essential nonprofit activities in vulnerable and rural populations like Monroe County. The charitablededuction tax credit is instrumental and extremely vital for us to continue to provide free health care to the underserved residents and workers of the Upper Keys. We urge you to send a strong letter or e-mail to the president, your senator, your congressmen. Tell them it is unacceptable to limit or do away with the charitable-deduction tax credit because of their failings to avoid the fiscal cliff. The homeless and underserved people of this county need our protection. The Good Health Clinic has been working on building a healthier community one patient at a time. If the administration and the elected officials change this policy, it will affect thousands of people who rely on our programs and services daily. Please take action now.

That loud screeching noise you may have heard Monday came from just such an event happening at the Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles. Plans to privatize the state license-plate distribution to for-profit vendors have been withdrawn. This came after strong objections were mounted by the county tax collectors who sell the plates for the DMVnow. Our own Monroe County tax collector, Dee Dee Henriquez, joined colleagues in opposition to the idea, telling the Keynoter back in October when DOTfirst floated their trial balloon that this would be bad for motorists. If license tags were outsourced, she said, "There is no benefit to the consumer. There will be longer waits and it could take three to five days longer to receive their tags if they go to centralized tag issuance. My office provides immediate turnaround." Apparently the message was heard in the corridors of DMVheadquarters in Tallahassee. On Monday, the department's director, Julie Jones, told the Miami Herald : "Based on the input, we have decided to withdraw." The agency still plans to move forward with a redesign of the state's license plate, employing larger, bolder letters. The purpose: "To make the plates more readable by toll booth cameras." The wheels grind on.DOE correct to back trackIn yet another example of Tallahassee bureaucrats getting the message, the Florida Department of Education's interim commissioner told lawmakers the new teacher evaluation system has problems. Oh, you think? Release of the first statewide results last week put the department in the unenviable position of having to withdraw the results shortly after they issued scores for each school district and school in the state. Turns out, for example, that Monroe County had not yet sent its teacher scorecards to Tallahassee for compilation, yet Monroe was cited as one district where every teacher rated "effective." Statewide, the same data showed that only 3.5 percent of Florida's teachers scored as "not satisfactory." Oh, if only that were true. We'd say it's back to the drawing board, but don't have a firm belief the Department of Education can get its act together so quickly. The Good Health Clinic in Tavernier provides medical care to those lacking insurance or who are under-insured.Thanks,Fishermen'sI would like to remind all the people in this area of the tremendous asset we have in Marathon, Fishermen's Community Hospital. One of the best reasons for this great asset is the staff of dedicated, hard-working people that do such a great job of taking care of you and me when we need it. I just spent a very painful three weeks there and I cannot thank those folks enough.

Curry saw much history unfold in herdayLamar Louise Curry, born Dec. 11, 1906 in Key West, died Dec. 3, eight days short of her 106th birthday. Her father was a major landowner with holdings in the Florida Keys and in Miami-Dade County. The Curry family's legacy encompassed commercial developments, including Buttonwood Bay in Key Largo on which Miss Curry imposed tight, conservationminded deed restrictions and Curry Hammock State Park in the Middle Keys. She left Key West in 1916 when her parents moved to Miami. Agraduate of Miami Senior High in 1923, she then went to Florida Southern College, graduating in 1927. She taught in the MiamiDade school system until 1962. During her lifetime, Miss Curry as everyone called her heard statesman William Jennings Bryan speak, saw her mother off to elegant tea parties at Henry Flagler's grand Royal Palm hotel and met the teenage Charles Lindbergh who was learning to fix airplanes in Miami. An astute observer of the South Florida real estate market, Curry sold off her father's vast holdings at propitious times, enabling a life of dignified luxury and quiet philanthropy. She was the privileged only child of landholder Alfred Bates Curry, whose English forebears migrated to Spanish Wells, Eleuthera, and his wife, Stobo DePass Curry, whose Dutch ancestors settled colonial Virginia. One of her distant relatives was William Curry, Key West's Mayor in 1854-55. And the Curry family manse in Key West, known as The Curry House, is now a restored bread and breakfast inn on Fleming Street. The retired teacher considered her decades of teaching history at Miami Senior High as her greatest legacy. "Nobody who came out of Miss Curry's class could be accused of being historical illiterates,''said Bob Graham, former U.S. senator and Florida governor, one of many students who remained close to their teacher until her death. "She expected you to know the date when the First World War ended, but was mainly concerned that you understood the rationale and major themes of American history,''Graham recalled. "She was a wonderful storyteller. She taught history as an ongoing series of stories about human beings, not just dry recitations of wars and other hallmarks of history courses.'' "The main things I wanted to teach were how to study; to indoctrinate them in patriotism, loyalty, and understand that a good action would bring a good reaction, and likewise, a bad action a bad reaction,''she said in a 1986 University of Florida oral history. "I never promised them anything unless I could and did keep the promise.'' In 2003, the Miami-Dade School Board named Lamar Louise Curry Middle School, 15750 SW47th St., in her honor. In an oral history archived by the University of Florida, she talked about how Miami was "a pretty little mediumsized town''when the family arrived (in 1916 from Key West), "clean and very attractive...The people were friendly, and we enjoyed it very much.'' Her father predicted that Miami would become "the largest city on the East Coast south of Baltimore, she said. "Also, it was going to be the gateway to all Latin America. People looked at him in amazement in those days when he said that.'' Among his early land purchases: a 12-grave plot at Woodlawn Cemetery. Miss Curry was buried there on Friday alongside her parents and her Aunt Lamar.Key West native leaves behind legacy at 105By ELINOR J.BRECHERMiami Herald StaffKEYS HISTORY Bayfront Park plaque in downtown Miami honors Lamar Louise Curry's parents,who were large landowners in the Keys and in Miami.Miss Curry was responsible for the conservation deed restrictions that allowed development of Buttonwood Bay in Key Largo.And land assembled by her father was later sold to the state for Curry Hammock State Park in Marathon.

All the national drugstore chains now offer a free customer loyalty program loaded with incentives to use their cards. Walgreen Co., the nation's largest drugstore chain, became the latest when it unveiled its Balance Rewards program in September. Experts say frequent shoppers should consider en-rolling but also should be aware that they're sacrificing some privacy. Here are four questions to consider before a store clerk asks you to sign up during your next visit.Why enroll?Why would I want another card cluttering my key ring? For starters, there's a chance to save money or build up points toward a future purchase. Walgreens'Balance Rewards program gives customer several ways to add points through both stores and online purchases. Shoppers receive a $5 award when they accrue 5,000 points. The reward climbs to $50 for 40,000 points. Rite Aid gives customers a 10 percent discount on store-brand products once they've built up 250 points through that company's Wellness Plus program. That climbs to a 20-percent discount for non-prescription purchases at 1,000 points. CVS offers through its ExtraCare program 2 percent back on non-prescription purchases and a dollar reward for every two prescriptions purchased. These programs resemble airline frequent flyer benefits, said Lisa Gill, prescription drugs editor for Consumer Reports. "If you're looking to save money, this is absolutely one thing to consider," she said.Is there more?What else do these programs provide? These loyalty programs offer layers of benefits, with some straying beyond the drugstore's walls to keep you interested. Balance Reward members can earn 10 points for every mile walked through a "Walk with Wal-greens" program. Rite Aid will cover a two-week trial membership and half the sign-up fee for a Curves membership for Wellness Plus members who accumulate 500 points. Curves is a fitness center chain for women. The drugstore chain also offers screenings or a health magazine subscription for customers who reach that level. Some companies also offer around-the-clock access to a pharmacist online or through toll-free numbers, and they may provide discounts on treatments for specific conditions like diabetes.The down sideWhat are the drawbacks? These cards have some limitations. Customers cannot earn points when paying for prescriptions in some states or if they have coverage through government-funded programs like Medicare or Medicaid. Pharmacists are generally experts in their company's programs, so customers should ask whether they can use loyalty cards when they pay for a prescription. Some products, such as cigarettes, also are excluded from these programs. These cards aim to encourage customers to visit more frequently, and those visits can add up. Drugstores are generally more expensive places to shop compared to grocery stores or big retailers like Target, said Jeff Jonas, an analyst who covers the industry for Gabelli & Co. They can be competitive on items such as baby formula or diapers and convenient if you just need a couple things. But the corner drugstore might not be the best option for the bulk of your weekly groceries. Customers who sign up for these loyalty cards sacrifice some privacy. The cards give companies a record of your buying habits and shopping patterns. If you have a sensitive purchase for which you'd rather not receive a follow-up marketing email, then don't use your loyalty card. "Just remember, these are voluntary, you don't have to do these, you can still shop at stores without being part of the loyalty program," Gill of Consumer Reports said. CVS, Walgreen and Rite Aid all say that they do not sell the data they collect from their loyalty program members.What else?What do the companies get out of all of this? The cards give companies loads of information to help them drive business to their stores, stock shelves and tailor marketing. Jonas, an ExtraCare member, receives weekly emails from CVS offering weekend deals. That's a slower time for drugstores because most customers visit during the week to fill a prescription after seeing their doctor. ExtraCare data help CVS executives figure out where to place items in its stores and what items to offer, said Rob Price, the company's chief marketing officer. For instance, if the company sees that its regular customers are buying several bottles of a shampoo at one size, it might start offering a bigger bottle. CVS has years of data from its loyalty program. It can tell not only what customers are buying, but which ones like sales that feature a percentage off the price and which want deals that advertise the dollar-value discount, Price said. These loyalty cards also help companies figure out what deals you may like. If you buy a particular nutritional supplement at a store, it may e-mail you a discount offer or promote a sale on a different supplement. "It's really an awful lot cheaper for them to basically advertise by sending you an email rather than running a commercial or printing up a circular or putting something in the newspaper," Jonas said.Ask yourself if drugstore programs workBy TOM MURPHYAssociated PressCONSUMERS BUSINESS BRIEFSRyzoc is named Hospice COOKathleen Ryzoc has been named chief operating officer at Visiting Nurse Association & Hospice of the Florida Keys.

Valentin doesn't quite grasp the advantage to holiday gift cards over cash, but as a Weber State marketing professor, he felt bound to study them. "They really don't make sense from an economic standpoint," Valentin said of gift cards. "You are trading a high degree of liquidity of cash for a more restricted gift card, which may have to be used at a specific store. Recipients can spend cash on anything they want, and givers save hours of shopping time -but noncash gifts remain the most popular because of their emotional and symbolic aspects." But after being asked to talk about gift cards over several semesters, Valentin and fellow marketing professor Anthony Allred of Weber State's John B. Goddard School of Business & Economics decided to research the subject. The professors surveyed 317 people throughout northern Utah for their "Giving and Getting Gift Cards" research. Their findings were published in the Journal of Consumer Marketing. According to most who responded, cash-like gift cards that can be spent on ordinary, everyday household items have no more charm than does cash. But people surveyed had more positive feelings about gift cards for specialty stores perceived as purveyors of luxuries or indulgences. Gift cards that were seen as fairly equivalent to cash were for big-box stores, including Target and Walmart, he said. "With those cards, you can always spend the money on groceries you would buy anyway," Valentin said. "A$20 gift card would, in effect, leave $20 in your wallet that you could apply toward an expensive watch or something else you wanted, so those cards are perceived as about as charming as cash." Nancy Van Valenburg wrote this for the StandardExaminer of Ogden, Utah.McClatchy-TribuneCONSUMERSSpecialty stores seen as indulgences

The Conchs, who have won five in a row, improved to 7-6 and are above .500 for the first time since the first game of the season. Against Stranahan which was in Key West territory only twice and which did not get off a shot the Conchs were led by senior Lauren Schoneck, who had three goals, and sophomore Hannah Leen, who had two. Goals were also scored by freshman Julia Passarelli, junior Maudia Azard, junior Marella Barroso and sophomore Selyne Casas.Against Dillard, Schoneck opened the game by crashing face-first into the left goal post on a corner kick. After being helped off the field, she sat out a minute before returning to quickly score two of the Conchs'first three goals.That 3-0 lead was increased to 4-0 on a goal by Raquel Schoneck, Lauren's younger twin by 17 minutes. Angela Martin made it 5-0 on a penalty kick, freshman Tatum Flowers made it 6-0 and Barroso followed with two goals that ended the game.After the game, Lauren Schoneck, who was draped in ice, said, "It's my neck, it feels like whiplash." Her grit was no surprise to coach Scott Paul."With the Schonecks, you pretty much have to cut their legs off for them not to play," he said.

Following through on a prior oral commitment, Lozano recently gathered family and friends to sign her NCAAscholarship letter to play for Stetson University in DeLand."She had a lot of colleges interested in her but after meeting [Stetson] Head Coach Nicole Moore, the decision was easy," parents Catherine and John Lozano said.Lozano, an attack wing and draw center, scored 90 goals and made 22 assists during the Lady Hurricanes' 12-4 campaign last season that included a third straight district championship.

We played a zone and I've got six big kids and we shuffled them in and out all night long trying to lean on" Brown, coach Kevin Freeman said. "Typically, I wish we didn't have halftimes because we've been coming out flat. They outscored us 16-5 in the third quarter and in the fourth, we had to foul and they were 13-of-17 from the line," coach Kevin Freeman. The Dolphins, meanwhile, struggled from the line at 11-for-28 overall. That helped the Knights grow their lead in the third quarter, and by the early fourth they were playing keep-away with the ball. The strategy forced the Dolphins to foul to get back possession and extend the game. "If we hit our free throws, it's a different game," Freeman said. The Dolphins started off well, trailing 11-9 after one quarter.

Yellowtail bite heavy in 40-60 foot waterCalmer winds and seas have made for excellent fishing along the reef this week. The yellowtail are biting very well in the 40to 60-foot depths, with most fish in the 14to 18inch range. And, there are still good numbers of muttons mixed in along the reef edge as well as on the wrecks and rough bottom areas in 120 to 200 feet of water. There's an appreciable increase in cobia snaking through the area, so it pays to be vigilant, as they will often appear behind your boat when you least expect it.

Anglers are finding plenty of schoolie size fish as well as enough gaffers and slammers to keep the fishing interesting. Again, having that live bait pitch rod at the ready is key this time of year. On the patch reefs, the mangrove bite continues to be steady, with legal size yellowtail, red grouper, the occasional black or gag grouper and loads of Spanish and cero mackerel mixed in. Hopefully the next cool front will bring in the king mackerel in force. Out in the bay, the mangrove bite is strong, with the best action taking place anywhere from eight to twelve miles out. Located in the same zone are heaps of Spanish mackerel. Get yourself situated in eight to ten feet of water, put the chum out and wait. If they don't show within 30 to 45 minutes, move east or west a couple of miles and try again. Eventually they will find you.

Alarge group from New York City fished a half day with us and on the CatchEm-All with Capt. Jeff Shelar. They came back with Spanish mackerel, mangrove and yellowtail and gag grouper. Other groups who fished on the SeaSquared were rewarded with cobia, loads of Spanish mackerel, sea trout, mangrove and yellowtail snapper and porgy. Many enjoyed their catch cooked at Porky's Bayside Restaurant, and our smokers are busy with the mackerel! Capt. Bob Brown, of Sundance Sportfishing at the 7 Mile Marina, has returned from his summer walleye fishing in Ohio for another season in Marathon. Billy and Susan Johnson, from Virginia Beach, along with their friends, Jose and Susan, from Tampa, enjoyed a productive combo offshore/reef trip. They landed several dolphin up to 12 pounds, releasing as many as they caught, and topped off the day with yellowtail and lane snapper and some jacks. Capt. Moe Mottice, of Moe's Custom Charters in Key West, reports the snappers and sharks were all over the patch reefs in Hawk Channel. On the reef, yellowtails, mackerel and big barracuda were thick and kept his anglers busy. Offshore in 150 to 200 feet of water, dolphin and wahoo were biting trolled ballyhoo. He says a color change was starting to form toward the end of the week and bets the sailfish bite will pick up as a result.Casting contestCapt.

The Conch boys team, which had defeated winless Stranahan, 5-1, on Friday night, defeated Dillard, 7-1, late Saturday afternoon, a third consecutive victory that improved its record to 4-4-1.Key West took a 1-0 lead when a charging Griffin Saunders headed in Ricky Gomez's 40-yard free kick. Kaemon Tomita then scored on a Gomez corner kick before Justin Mock's header on another Gomez corner kick sailed high before dropping through the keeper's hands for a third goal and a 3-0 halftime lead.Few fans remained for the Conch-dominated second half, but those that did as well as 21 birds perched on a wire high above the press box saw another goal by Justin Mock, two by Spencer Hamilton and one by Roberto Remercy.

She is a U.S. Lacrosse Academic All-American. "I can't understate what a major contribution Julia has made to the Coral Shores girls lacrosse team," program founder and coach Mark Hall said. "She is a phenomenal athlete and clearly understands the game of lacrosse better than most. She always knows where to be on the field and can make the big plays when they are needed." Stetson University plays its first NCAAseason this spring, with former Coral Shores defensive leader Cami Lopez on the Lady Hatter roster.

Rojas hit a pair of jumpers to make it 25-18 and the Dolphins made a stop on defense and called a timeout. Freeman said they drew up a play for Rojas that worked to perfection. Shemar Fantroy passed to Rojas, who pulled up for a three-pointer, made the shot and was fouled. Rojas made the free throw and a fired up Dolphins bench headed for the locker room.But as Freeman pointed out, Marathon came out flat in the third and fell behind 43-27 at one point early in the fourth quarter. The Knights slowed the pace of play and the Dolphins were unable to climb back in the game. Rojas finished with a team-high 18 points and had two assists and two rebounds. Cooper Chaplin had seven points and four steals, while Patrick Ryan had five points and five rebounds.

The Canes (3-2) picked up the pace with 29 points in the second half but could do little to narrow the gap against the Warriors'effective press defense and outside shooting. Final scoring statistics were pending at press time.

The boys team (2-1) will have three consecutive District 16-4Agames at the Bobby Menendez Gym at 7 Thursday night against Coral Shores, at 7:30 Friday against Gulliver Prep and at 7:30 Saturday against St. Brendan. The 1-3 Conch girls, after playing a non-district game at Marathon at 6 p.m. today, will face Gulliver at 6 Friday and St. Brendan at 4:30 Saturday afternoon. The Key West boys'loss at Grandview Prep was only its second under second-year coach Anton Lopez. The first was in last season's regional semifinals, which ended a 16-1 season. "I expected a few bumps and bruises this season," Lopez said. "We're striving to get better for district play and the playoffs." Elliott Valdez and Daniel Thompson both scored in double figures for the Conchs, who were at a size disadvantage. "They had a 6-9 junior and two 6-5 guys," Lopez said. The loss did not sit well with the Conchs, who were down only 18-17 at the half. "They were very upset on the way home," Lopez said. "And they're very hungry for this week." The Conch girls'loss to Grandview was their third in a row, "but it was the best we've played this season," said coach Tony McDowell. Key West was led by Jamica Mack, who came off the bench to score 16 points. "They had a girl 6-4 and Jamica played great against her," McDowell said. "After the game, she said, Coach, I did all I can do.'" The Conchs missed a chance to begin the game with an 8-0 lead by missing four layups. Grandview pulled away in the second half. Mikayla Stansbury had nine points, Ryann Appleby scored seven, Sahara Graft added eight and Kaneya Mims and Biandrea Dawkins each had two. The Conchs, who had been plagued by horrible free-throw shooting, showed a slight improvement, going five of 10 from the line.Both squads looking to reboundBy DICK WAGNERKeynoter ContributorKEY WEST BASKETBALL Lady Hurricanes play St. Brendan tonightCoral Shores'Lady Canes are not used to having more losses than wins at this point of the soccer season. Coach Arthur Paterson says not to worry, the best lies ahead for a talented squad. "It's been a bit of an uphill struggle this year," Paterson said. "But we're getting to the top." The Canes (3-4) have a chance to get on the winning side of the record this week with today's trip to St. Brendan, followed by a 6 p.m. Thursday home match against Key West High School. Coral Shores lost to Florida Christian, 2-1, on Monday, with Cailin Reckwerdt scoring the Canes'one goal off an Iris Dunn assist.Last week, goalie Pookie del Pino and the Cane defense got a shutout in a 3-0 win over Terra Envrionmental, but Carrollton topped Coral Shores, 4-2. Reckwerdt, a transfer from Island Christian, scored twice against Terra. Dunn got the other goal. "Cailin is a very good player who works hard, and now she's settling into her role like the rest of the girls," Paterson said. "It took some time for this team to gel but I think everything will click at just the right time." Dunn, expected to wind up as a major-college recruit, leads a solid set of returning players that includes Mallory Wiecjorek, Kelly Cassidy, Heather Doyle and Cheyenne Minaldi. Addition of players like Reckwerdt and University of Florida lacrosse recruit Katharine Hamer gives the Canes a solid shot at returning to the state regional playoffs. Coral Shores went 15-5 with a trip to the regionals last season, but graduated a talented crop of seniors including University of Miami standout freshman Jasmine Paterson and college lacrosse players Cami Lopez and Jenn Doyle. "All of our games have been close," Paterson said. "In our losses, we made some mistakes the other teams capitalized on. Now we're eliminating the mistakes." Scheduling problems left the Lady Canes with a light 12-match regular season this winter. "I told the girls that's fine," Paterson said. "It leaves more time for practice." Coral Shores boys soccer team plays two matches in Tavernier next week, at 3:30 p.m. Monday against St. Brendan and 4 p.m. Tuesday against Marathon.CORAL SHORES SOCCERMat Conchs place 6thLed by Angelo Guieb, Chase Kelley and Andrew Calderwood, the Key West High wrestling team placed sixth in the weekend 27-team Wildcat Classic at Western High in Davie.

"Nutcracker Key West" is the creation of Key West resident Joyce Stahl, a classically trained dancer who performed "The Nutcracker" and other ballets with New Jersey's American Repertory Ballet for 38 years. Stahl's production transforms the timeless story of young Clara's visit to the land of the Sugarplum Fairy into an island fantasy featuring dancing snowy egrets, phosphorescent sea anemones, shimmering reef fish and even a conch shell, the symbol of the Florida Keys. "Nutcracker Key West" stars a professional corps de ballet along with more than 50 Keys children and other local performers. The principal dancer is Natalia Ashikhmina, a former prima ballerina with the Russian National Ballet. She's toured three continents and is now with Kentucky's Louisville Ballet. The production incorporates expertly crafted sets and costumes designed by Stahl that are valued at more than $500,000. Standout sequences include a dream battle where toy sailors protect Clara from the Rooster King, and a coral reef scene where Clara and her nutcracker-come-to-life are entertained by a dance troupe of children costumed as tumbling shrimp and colorful fish. The storyline also includes imagery drawn from the history of the Spanish galleon Nuestra Senora de Atocha shipwrecked off Key West in 1622. Performances of "Nutcracker Key West" are to be staged Saturday and Sunday, and Dec. 19 through 22 at the Tennessee Williams Theatre, 5901 College Road on the campus of Florida Keys Community College on Stock Island.

Parents can set up profiles for up to six children and add time limits to control how long kids can spend reading, watching videos or using the Kindle altogether. With the content subscription service, kids can browse age-appropriate videos, games and books and pick what they want to see. They won't be shown ads and will be prevented from accessing the Web or social media. Kids also won't be able to make payments within applications. Amazon, which is based in Seattle, is launching the service as competition heats up in the tablet market among Apple, Barnes & Noble, Microsoft and Samsung. Amazon's strategy is to offer the Kindle at a relatively low price and make money selling the content. Offering a subscription service aimed at kids helps set the Kindle apart from its many competitors. "We hope that our devices are really, really attractive for families," said Peter Larsen, vice president of Amazon's Kindle business.It won't have ads or access to the InternetBy BARBARA ORTUTAYAssociated PressTECHNOLOGY Photo courtesy ASSOCIATED PRESSThis shows the new subscription service for children's games,videos and books for Kindle Fire tablet devices.

Even though consumers say they plan to spend more on gifts, decorations and other purchases this year, experts say tipping will remain fairly flat. Last year, 39 percent of consumers didn't tip any of their service providers, up from 38 percent in 2010, according to the Consumer Reports National Research Center. Average tip amounts have held steady, with $20 averages for providers including garbage collectors, teachers, hairstylists, newspaper carriers and petcare providers. "Tips are pretty uniform," says Tobie Stanger, senior project editor for the Consumer Reports National Research Center, which tracks gifting for 10 different service providers. "We haven't seen much of a change." There are some small signs that budget crunches are easing, if only slightly: 68 percent of people gave a cash tip or gift to their housecleaner in 2011, up from 61 percent the year before, according to the survey. While about the same number of people (34 percent) tipped a pet-care provider, more gave a check or cash, versus a gift, which could be less valuable. Some consumers are also talking about giving a little more, says Jodi R.R. Smith, founder of etiquette consulting firm Mannersmith. Experts say tipping etiquette varies by region states on either coast tend to focus more on cash tips, for example, while Middle America favors gifts, Stanger says. And the appropriate amount to give can vary based on local pricing. Aregular stylist is typically given a gift that's equivalent to the cost for one appointment, for instance, an amount that may be much more or less than the median $20. Skipping the tip, however, is a bad idea no matter where you live, says Teri Rogers, the founder of realestate guide Brick Undergound.com. You risk poor service going forward. More important, it's rude, says Smith. Try these tips for giving without offending: Include a thank you note with any holiday tip. "Holiday giving is really a way of saying thank you," Stanger says. A grateful note is especially important if you're giving less than usual or can't afford to give at all, she says. That lets recipients know that they're not being snubbed. Calculate rates. The rule of thumb is to tip the cost of one session for a provider you see regularly, like a personal trainer, babysitter or lawn-care provider, says Smith. "If you're somebody who only gets your hair cut twice a year, you can scale it down appropriately," she says. Daily helpers like nannies, elder-care workers and dog walkers should get more: Give a week's pay, at least. Ask neighbors what they tip for service people you don't pay directly, such as a building superintendent or garage attendant, says Rogers. Those amounts tend to vary widely. Consider gifts Cash is preferable for most recipients, but in a few cases, gifts are the better choice. "In a lot of school districts, they frown upon teachers getting cash. It could be looked on as a bribe," Stanger explains. Postal workers can't accept cash, or any gift valued at more than $25. Consider such restrictions when deciding whether cash or a gift is more appropriate. Gift-giving etiquette means putting thought into the item you pick. Ageneric gift card is better than one to a specific store if you don't know what the housekeeper likes, says Smith.Thanks those who give you great serviceBy KELLIE GRANTMarketwatchSOCIAL NORMS ACROSS 1Sticking point 5Porker products 9Bruins of Cal. 13Son of Noah 17Patriot Allen 19Fasten firmly 20Mom's mother 21Inveigle 22Slimming style 23Guam's capital 24Kookaburra country26Hawaii,formerly 29Twisted horns antelope 30Red or Ross 31Bioplast 32Extensive 33Chinese Red leader 34Wanting 36Actress Thompson 37European nation 41"The ___": Hunter/Keitel film 44Mediterranean isl. 45Serling or Steiger 46Blackthorn 47Las Vegas of the East52Holbrook,and namesakes 54Large cask 55Remnant 56Bestow 57Guatemala gold 59Rubber hub of Ohio 61Corsica and Martinique 63Rub lightly 64Had regrets 65S.A.city of note 66Israel's neighbor 68Garden State 71"The Roof of the World" 75Alien with his own show77Pre-Lenten wkday. 78Takes advantage of 80Letterman rival 81Montague man 83WWII price agcy. 84Pipe type 85Mauna ___ 86Negative conjunction87Falcon's foot 89Honeymoon haven 93Brainstorm 95Clamor 96Burns'negative 97Take tucks 98Netherlands' neighbor 100Curlicue 102Island studied by 16 Down 105Hammer's style 106Oversupply 107"King"of music 108Traitor 111Deal with 114Victoria's province 118Mideast mecca 120Carroll character 121___ del Rio,Cuba 122Yemen port 123Pleasant 124Bowling alleys 125Unmoving 126Wetlands growth 127Poetic collection 128Shadow box 129Neither black nor white DOWN 1Actress Arthur and others 2Mythical mountain of a man 3Lorelei's river 4Babushka 5Eminently well 6Profit 7Clothing department 8Strong and sturdy 9Kampala's country 10Vulgar 11Young woman 12Qt.or pt. 13Zigzag courses 14Islands dance 15Thomas Moore's land 16Anthropologist Margaret 18Fresh 19Tore 25Bring up 27Driving hazard 28Support 33Rose family tree 35Billion years 36Aforementioned 37Tibetan gazelle 38Choir voice 39Sentence subject 40Desire 41City of Light 42Peninsula nation 43Author Horatio 44Botch 45Previous name of Zimbabwe 48Shooter marble 49Victor's gloat 50South African cultural center 51"Take ___ time" 53Comic sketch 58Come back strong 60Irritate 62"The King and I" locale 64Do followers 67Actor Baldwin 69Actress Smart 70Calendar unit 72The Beast's Beauty 73___ Gay:historic plane 74Salutation76Reduce by creasing79Lady of Sp. 81___ out:outlasted 82City on the Oka 84Fertility deity 86Pen point 88Ready-fire connection90JFK or LBJ 91USN mail drop 92Fearful 94On a shoal 99Fleming namesakes100Weather regions 101Word with wit or smart 102Kind of football 103Lily plants 104Brooks or Gibson 106Artist El ___ 107Communist giant 109Capp character 110Formal headband 111Not closed 112Give up 113Eucalyptus,for example 114Radar image 115Insult 116News agcy. 117Bohemian 119Chemical suffix Observer crossword puzzle "Geography Lesson" Solution in the Dec.15 Keynoter www.keysnet.com Fewer people visiting their doctorsAmericans aren't going to the doctor as often, but that doesn't mean they're getting healthier. The average adult makes about four visits a year to a doctor, nurse or other medical provider, down from five visits in 2001, according to a new report by the U.S. Census Bureau. "On the face of it you'd say we're going in the right direction," said Thomas McAuliffe, health policy analyst with the Missouri Foundation for Health. "Then you start thinking of the economy." People who are uninsured generally avoid medical care as long as possible. Just 12 percent of uninsured Americans received routine checkups in 2010, according to the report, which did not break down the data by state. Some findings from the report confirm commonly held beliefs women are more likely than men to visit the doctor and the number of medical visits and hospital stays increases with age. The report also uncovered some lesser-known statistics. Hispanics make the fewest trips to the doctor of any ethnic group. And more than half of the population did not take any prescription drugs in the last year. The slowing in medical care usage could also be an indication of employers cutting back on their contributions to insurance coverage. And workers are keeping more money in health savings accounts instead of using it for copays. "More and more Americans are putting off care until it's urgent," McAuliffe said. In a few years, there could be a rush on hospitals and doctors'offices when all the provisions of health care reform kick in, including the requirement that most people have health insurance by 2014. That could be trouble for insurers and providers if people show up with health problems that have gone unchecked, McAuliffe said. "What if you have all the precursors of a chronic condition or heart disease and you put it off for a year or two and you've blown past the manageable stage?" McAuliffe said. "Our system may be taxed for the time being." Despite the downturn in medical services, Americans still consider themselves in either "excellent" or "very good" health. Only 2 percent consider themselves in poor health, according to the report. Other findings from the report: About 59 percent of people surveyed had seen a dentist in the last year, compared to 73 percent who had seen a medical provider. Hospital stays are rare 92 percent of people had not spent the night in at least a year. More than one in three Americans take prescription drugs regularly.The economy cited as among main reasonsBy BLYTHE BERHARDSt.Louis Post-DispatchTO YOUR HEALTH
