Glad to see you're volunteering to help out. This "adopt an immigrant" program is not realyet. However, it's going to have to come. The fact is whether we have 36,000 unaccompanied children from Central America or 90,000, as some predict there will be, they are probably here to stay. First, there's the humanitarian perspective.

That's the crux of the matter. The new proposal passed a year ago by the Senate with bipartisan support is not a bad law. It's a needed law just as it was needed several years ago when President It's comprehensive and covers the 11 million illegals here now, future employment needs, border enforcement and many other issues.

42 Gabber July 3 July 9, 2014 By Cathy Salustri Key West was to be made the American winter resort of the tropics. From the 1941 Works Progress Administrations Key West WHAT: To the uniniti ated, Key West is just around the corner from anywhere in Florida. In reality, driving from Pensacola to Key West will take only seven fewer minutes than driving from Pensacola to Chicago. Of course, Key West is the warmer of the two places, and perhaps decidedly more quirky. The island, a seven-and-a-half square mile collection of roughly 25,000 residents, has a reputation for odd. More than one new Gulfport resident likens the town to Key West. Key West, if you believe the stories, with people who moved south to drop out. Its a collection of extremes. In 1982 the federal government mounted a roadblock on US 1 to stop illegal aliens from entering the country. Since the roadblock was north of Key West, this meant Conchs (Key West residents) had to prove their citizenship to leave the island. In protest, they seceded from the United States, then immediately surrendered and demanded reparations. Key West, this story seems to prove, is nothing like the rest of the United States. Its even the cheeky cousin of mainland Florida, no slouch itself when it comes to wacky headlines. Arts of all sorts abound; Hemingway had a home here; Winslow Homer painted here. Countless artists across an abundance of mediums live and work in Key West. However, Key Weird (as some call it) attracts the arts community not by chance or the appeal of a remote bohemian community; Key West attracts artists because during the Great Depression, the federal government plugged money into the arts in Key West. Arts, and the tourists their work attracted, would save the key from economic death.WHY:In the 1830s, Key West was the wealthiest city in the United States, with professional wreckers (also called pirates) earning a good living. By 1934, situations changed and Key West was bankrupt. This wasnt a paper bankruptcy: the city had no money to pay its em ployees. When the city asked the federal govern ment for help during the Great De pres sion, 80% of its residents al ready received federal aid. Its pleas can tell the world how great we are. The plan was to make the city a tour ist destination on par with Bermuda and Nassau. The Federal Emergency Relief Admin istration (FERA) imported artists to create works of art that would promote Key West as a tourist destination. Mu rals, advertising, guidebook illustrations and postcards resulted from this glut of artists. Citizens volunteered over two million man-hours to clean streets, develop beaches, create sani tation systems, and renovate and re decorate houses. Across the nation, city planners lauded this bold com munity planning experiment. Talent the government could not import, it taught. Residents on the government dole took classes in how to make art, which consisted of everything from drawings to ashtrays.WHO:Key West is the Monroe County seat. Monroe includes parts of Everglades National Park, Big Cypress Preserve, the Dry Tortugas and the entire chain of limestone islands curving around the tip of mainland Florida. WHERE: MM0, at the end of US 1.BEST part: The cemetery with the sense of humor. Stroll through the headstones epitaphs like Just resting my eyes, and I told you I was sick.WORST part: In the case of what hoped to accomplish, Duval Street remains the prime example of getting what you wish for: tourists. FUN fact: During prohibition, some homes used the negative space in the gingerbread trim to advertise guns or booze for sale. Look for homes with guns or liquor bottles hidden in second-story trim.MAGIC Question: Key West isnt cheap. Even the cheapest hotels cost a couple of hundred dollars a night. Parking costs about $14 a day. Just off-island, try the Sugarloaf KOA or the Sugarloaf Lodge. Contact Cathy Salustri at Key West: Before Duval

48 Gabber July 3 July 9, 2014 By Robert J. Myers, Esq. What are Health Care Surrogates and Living Wills? A thoughtfully prepared disability plan should cover who should handle a disabled persons health care matters as well as their property management issues. After all, health care matters are of monumental importance because of their deeply personal character and the consequences those decisions might have on the persons length and quality of life. The best way to avoid a guardian being appointed by decisions is to designate a Health Care Surrogate. The Health Care Surrogate should be in a good position to use substituted judgement for the disabled person, the principal, and thus should have a solid grasp of the disabled persons attitudes, the quality of satisfactory, and his or her religious beliefs and philosophy of life. The in placing these important judgments into the hands of the Health Care Surrogate. A competent person has the right to refuse medical treatment for any reason whatsoever, even if that refusal will result in an otherwise preventable death. But what happens if that person is unable to communicate his or her wishes? A living will goes into effect if a person falls into a condition where recovery is almost impossible. It is a set of written instructions stating alive through the use of medical technology when that individual is in a terminal condition and incapable of giving informed consent or refusal for further treatment. It also appoints that persons behalf. A living will is one of the most important estate preservation techniques available to the average person. Numerous studies have shown that a large portion of all health care costs in the United States are incurred in the last few days of a persons life. The cost burdens to the family members of individuals in terminal conditions are also forced to spend substantial amounts of their income and savings in order to medically prolong the lives of their loved ones for just a few days.
