Government Shutdown Impacts

Participants aboard a portion of more than 100 boats demonstrate against the closure of Everglades National Park waters Wednesday, Oct. 9, 2013, near Islamorada, Fla. About a third of the 2,380-square-mile park encompasses Florida Bay and it has been closed to Florida Keys guides and recreational fishermen since Oct. 1 due to the Washington budget impasse. Guides have lost business and are insisting that federal officials do something to let them back in. (Andy Newman/Florida Keys News Bureau)
