Queen Elizabeth II became an honorary citizen of the Florida Keys during a visit Saturday to a remote island fort in the Gulf of Mexico. Monroe County Mayor Wilhelmina Harvey, a 79-year-old scuba diver, gave the British monarch a Queen conch shell to commemorate the occasion. "It's the prettiest of all the conch species," Harvey said. The royal yacht Britannia was anchored a few hundred yards off the coral rock island, part of the Dry Tortugas chain some 70 miles west of Key West.

Vice President Al Gore toured a burned-out subdivision Monday, talking with residents who lost everything in wildfires that have charred about 237,000 acres in Florida. "The house didn't mean anything. It's what's in the house that makes a home," Bob March said. March had lived in the Seminole Woods house for two years. It's now a heap of ashes and concrete. A solemn Gore told March that Gov. Lawton Chiles, who was traveling with him, was working to get assistance for homeowners.

Now that college football's "second season," recruiting, is unofficially over, coaches are spending these days analyzing their final returns and calculating frequent-flier miles after another winter of crisscrossing the country in search of players.
