AS THE GOP primary shifts to a Mitt/Newt Deep South skirmish in Florida, two questions arise: Can Mitt change? Can Newt maintain? Can Newt, who for so long was all too human, maintain his "New Newt" stance? Can Mitt, the Richie Rich of politics, morph into a more human persona? For example, a Romney recovery could start with announcing during tonight's Tampa debate that he'll release tax returns for the last dozen years. What's the harm? What's there? Are there tons of money to the Mormon Church and concerns over how that plays in the South?

With a vigorous current tugging us in one-foot seas, I gripped my son Sasha's hand as we flippered our way above a magical undersea garden of undulating coral gorgonians - those snake-haired sisters of Greek mythology - and through schools of angelfish, purple wrasses and the occasional barracuda. For a 9-year-old's introduction to snorkeling, the wonders of John Pennekamp Coral Reef State Park were pretty awesome. We were experiencing sensory overload, gesturing exaggeratedly to one another at the parade of fantastic fish, yet trying to be mindful of the reef because the slightest inadvertent contact could kill the coral.

Lee Heist's phone won't stop ringing. Just about every five minutes, it chimes with calls, from New York, from Philadelphia, from Lancaster County. They're calling with questions about Brenda Heist - Heist's ex-wife, who disappeared from Lititz, Pa., without a trace 11 years ago. After years of futile investigation, Brenda Heist was declared dead in 2009. Lee Heist, who was once a prime suspect in her disappearance, began a new life: He remarried four years ago and lives in a modest ranch house in Norristown with his wife and dogs.

Peter E. Costello 2d, 77, of Ambler, whose company built single-family homes and townhouses in Montgomery County and Northeast Philadelphia and condominiums in Florida, died Monday of cancer at Chestnut Hill Hospital. In the late 1940s, he and his brother, Louis, founded Costello Bros. Building Co. in Philadelphia, which later moved to Whitemarsh Township, Montgomery County. One of their first projects was the building of 300 homes as the Winchester Park development, at Holme Avenue and Welsh Road in Northeast Philadelphia.

The National Aquarium has finally captured two dolphins for its new Marine Mammal Pavilion, but an order from Florida's governor might force it to release them. The aquarium's capture team, headed by San Diego veterinarian Jay Sweeney, captured the male bottlenose dolphins in an unannounced operation this week in Tampa Bay and transferred them by truck to Hawk's Cay, a resort in the Florida Keys. There, they are to be acclimated to captivity before being flown to Baltimore for the pavilion's opening in the spring.

A run-down hotel in the Florida Keys is the setting for a lot of sweat-soaked suspense, claustrophobic confrontation and psychological gamesmanship in Key Largo, unspooling at the County Theater in Doylestown on Wednesday at 9 p.m. Directed by John Huston from a screenplay by Philadelphia native Richard Brooks (adapting the Maxwell Anderson play), Key Largo is one of those crowded, star-studded affairs topped by a cast of '40s A-listers: Humphrey Bogart, Lauren Bacall, Edward G. Robinson, Lionel Barrymore and Claire Trevor.

* BLOODLINE. Today, Netflix.   WHEN I TALK to myself, as I too often do these days, it may be to ask: Is this TV voiceover really necessary? It's largely superfluous in Netflix's "Bloodline," a new series from the creators of "Damages," in which a prodigal son returns to his family's resort in the Florida Keys and things don't go so well. Kyle Chandler, who did so much with silences in "Friday Night Lights," retains his spare delivery as John Rayburn, whose efforts to keep his black-sheep brother, Danny (Ben Mendelsohn)

When Hurricane Georges swirled through the Caribbean in late September, it left its mark on several tourist-oriented areas, notably Puerto Rico, the Dominican Republic, and the Florida Keys. With a few exceptions, damage was not widespread to tourist-related properties and attractions. Most of the affected locations were back in business within weeks, and others are expected to recover in time for winter tourists - barring the effects of other storms before the hurricane season ends in December.

HARVEY CEDARS, N.J. - If California's Venice Beach is known for its drum circles and stoner sunset gatherings, and Florida's Key West for its Mallory Square theatrics, then what is to be said about the sunset ritual in Harvey Cedars? That you can follow the sunset as it moves from right to left over the course of a summer, ending up almost over the bridge by Labor Day? That the wind tends to die down as the beach day settles into evening, and kids on bikes and dogs on leashes become silhouetted at every street end on the bay side?

  It's hard to think of many stories that open with such a monstrously sobering, almost unbearable sense of impending doom as Bloodline , Netflix's latest original production. The series wastes no time telling us that it will be a tragedy, a horrible, deeply affecting story about the destruction of a family, and a compelling lesson in fatalism. Netflix will post all 13 first-season episodes on Friday. An intricately drawn and superbly cast portrait of a family in crisis that evokes Raymond Carver and James Dickey, Bloodline has the feel, the imaginative reach and aesthetic depth and resonance of a novel.

Last summer, I was living in my own personal hell. Sitting behind a desk, the hours passed in slow motion. I had nothing but time to Google search anything that sounded fascinating or wonderful. What I came across put my life into forward motion for the first time. Perusing many a travel website, I decided on a whim to quit my job and fly off to Florida to visit my best friend and my closest sister. At the airport, freshly unbound from the chains of office drudgery, it occurred to me that I hadn't flown in four years.

The young man from the Sunshine State had not seen the sun in four days by the time a recent practice had concluded, but Rutgers defensive tackle Eric Foster didn't come north from Homestead, Fla., for the weather. The Football Writers Association first-team all-American came to help resurrect a sad-sack football program after buying into coach Greg Schiano's vision, which at the time seemed like a pipe dream to those familiar with the Scarlet Knights' perennial foibles. Besides, when Foster looks around the locker room, he feels as much at home as is possible for someone about 1,300 miles away.

Three North Jersey men died Friday while exploring a sunken Navy ship off the Florida Keys. A fourth man, who did not enter the ship, survived. The final two bodies were recovered yesterday from inside the ship, 135 feet down, in difficult missions involving dozens of rescuers. The three men, all advanced certified divers, died trying what is known as a "penetration dive," a risky exploration into the dark passages and compartments of a sunken vessel, said Becky Herrin, spokeswoman for the Monroe County Sheriff's Office.
