“Although I am very happy for the much improved lighting at Tommy Roberts Stadium, I am disheartened that once again, an out of county company received the bid to replace the lights which means that once again our tax dollars will not be re-spent in our county by these workers. The School District needs to[…]

“Commissioner Murphy’s objection to a toll on US1 saying it would not bring in enough money to fix our roads and bridges is absurd. Isn’t the idea to receive whatever money it generated to help fix things but also help with the biggest problem, to try and cut down on the horrible heavy traffic coming[…]

This is a free country and we are a part of[…]

“Key West is a traffic jam. Think you have a solution? Wednesday’s City Commission workshop on parking garages is probably your only chance for your voice to be heard. Leadership on this is not coming from city hall. It needs to come from the people.” “So HTA wants to bring back the Ducks. Those behemoths[…]

“Why aren’t the lower Duval bar owners offering to sponsor Poker Run? They are the ones making all of the money off it that want it so bad.” “What good is a warning in the Key West Citizen that mosquito control is going to aerial spray with a known endocrine disruptive toxic pesticide when the[…]
