Goombay gets art market
Letty Nowak's Lemonade Stand Gallery is holding its first "I Love Bahama Village Art Market," to coincide with this weekend's annual Goombay Festival.
The annual Goombay street party centers around Petronia Street in Bahama Village, and the main entertainment stage is at the corner of Emma and Petronia streets.
From 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Friday and Saturday, the Lemonade Stand's art market will take place in the gallery's brick courtyard, 318 Petronia St.
The Lemonade Stand has been a part of the neighborhood for eight years, originating as a pop-up venture.
Trespasser had own sheet
A homeless man found sleeping on the porch of a Duval Street church's back housing units apparently came prepared, police reports said,
The 52-year-old man, arrested for trespassing at 7 a.m. Monday at St. Paul's Episcopal Church, was found asleep beneath a sheet, Officer Frank Duponty reported.
A church employee called police and asked for an arrest, Duponty said. The sleeping man had to have crossed two "No Trespassing" signs while entering the church's property, the officer concluded.
The man remained jailed Monday night in lieu of $500 bond over the misdemeanor arrest.
AIDS Memorial seeks names
The Friends of the Key West AIDS Memorial, a tribute to people who have lost their lives to the epidemic, is requesting name nominations for this year's additions.
The 2013 deadline for names, which are engraved on black granite monuments embedded in the walkway and surrounding area approaching the White Street Pier, is Oct. 31.
Nominations may include people who have died from AIDS-related illness and who showed their love for the Florida Keys by living, working or visiting here, the nonprofit said.
The nomination form is available at www.keywestaids.org. A $100 donation is suggested to cover the cost of the engraving.
