“Ever stop to think; maybe the problem isn’t suntan lotion, but dropping 115 snorkelers at a time on the same spot repeatedly.” “There are places for rent for $1,000 per month. I know someone who has a place for less than that in Old Town. These places may only be advertised word-of-mouth because that’s all[…]

“The City of Key West was sued for not having closed captions on (its) videos. The cost of ‘retrofitting’ all the videos to be ADA compliant for hearing impaired folks was cost prohibitive, and the only other solution was to take down the videos. All new videos are closed captioned now.” “All this back and[…]

“Of course bikes should have lights at night and stop at red lights. Stop signs, too, though our ridiculous number of four-way stops is an incentive to roll them. But drivers — ever heard of Florida Statute 316.083? It says you have to give a bike three feet when passing it. What about the constant[…]

The plan also stated that the bathrooms behind the amphitheater would be the public restrooms for that area of the Truman Waterfront Park.” “George Neugent would make a great member on the SFWMD board. He has tons of[…]

“Key West is too lax when it comes to laws pertaining to bicycles with no lights. The laws need to be enforced big time when dusk approaches, the bicycles need to have a wide beam headlight and a vibrant taillight for drivers to see them when approaching to avoid any unnecessary accidents. Don’t rely on[…]

“Key West is a wonderful town to bicycle around! But I have noticed at night, many bikes do not have even one light on them, which is the law. This increases the risk of an accident both for the rider and the people around them. A couple of weeks ago, a friend’s husband was walking[…]

“The public should be welcome, hassle free, at the public beach at the end of Duval. Do we need to unite before the hotel continues to overstep?” “Whoa! All of the old city meeting videos have been removed from the city website. City clerk says they had to take them down because they weren’t close-captioned[…]

“The reason there was only one letter of response for the lease at the Thompson’s Fish house at the Key West Bight is because no one else saw it. The minimum legal notice was placed for one day on Oct. 4 in the Key West Citizen. No other attempt was made to notify or communicate[…]
