Duval St. workshop earlier

The city Planning Department, at the request of the Duval Street Committee, will hold a special workshop to consider making portions of the main drag a pedestrian zone on certain days.

The meeting will be from 3 to 5 p.m. Wednesday at Old City Hall, 510 Greene St. The incorrect times were published in Friday's edition.

Results of the city's consulting team, which worked with the committee and city staff, will be presented for public review and comment. That work and comments from the public will be the basis of refining possible pedestrian use of Duval. It also will also help formulate recommendations for the Planning Board and City Commission.


Woman, 44, dies at home

Paramedics pronounced a Key West woman dead Thursday evening after finding her unconscious in her bedroom, a police report said.

Lisa Ann Guieb, 44, was found at 7:20 p.m. lying on her bed in her home at 3613 Northside Drive, Officer Billy Vasquez reported. Guieb's two sons, ages 24 and 20, and 16-year-old daughter were home. The yard was roped off by yellow crime scene tape as neighbors quietly gathered. Police gave no cause of death Friday. Court records show that on May 13, prosecutors dismissed a misdemeanor charge of contributing to the delinquency of a minor that Guieb had pending since August.


Body found in the water

The body of a 70-year-old Marathon man was found floating in the water Thursday at his 23rd Street home near a boat on which he had been working.

James Gogan was found in the water at 5 p.m. by his girlfriend and a neighbor, according to the Monroe County Sheriff's Office. Detectives reportedly did not suspect foul play. Both women said Gogan had heart problems and that he had a scheduled doctor's appointment next month, according to a press release.

The neighbor told detectives she saw Gogan working on his boat earlier in the day.

An autopsy is scheduled to determine cause of death.
