Baby, kid clothes, items sold
The Florida Keys Healthy Start Coalition will host "Top Swap: An Everything Kids' Consignment Sale" this weekend at 2926 N. Roosevelt Blvd., in Key Plaza next to Kmart.
The sale features "gently used" or new children's clothing for newborns through 12-year-olds, the nonprofit said. Nursery furniture, toys, games books, maternity clothes and safety gear will also be available. It's free to shop from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday, but for $10, shoppers may enter early. From noon to 3 p.m. Sunday, most items will be sold at half-price. Proceeds benefit Healthy Start, which helps mothers and babies in the Keys.

The Upper Keys League of Women Voters will host a free community forum about the sales tax referendum question from 5:30 to 7 p.m. Thursday at the Holiday Inn Key Largo, 99701 Overseas Highway, Mile Marker 100.
A panel comprising Monroe County Mayor David Rice, Steve Estes, Steve Pribramsky and Mark Mills will discuss the pros and cons of extending the 1-cent infrastructure sales tax through 2033. Voters will be asked the question on the Nov. 6 ballot.
