    Local couple relishes opportunity to wed after court...

    It is somewhat ironic Steve Schlairet and Ozzie Russ plan to wait at least a few months to get legally married, considering they fought the state in a lawsuit for the right to wed and now Washington County, their home county, could be the only county to offer marriage licenses on Jan. 6. Now that same-sex marriage could be legal in Florida, at least in the small, rural sliver Schlairet and Russ inhabit, they need time to organize their families and friends from around the country. Lawyers for the Florida Association of Court Clerks and Comptrollers said Tuesday that Washington County is the only place named in the lawsuit.
