Dolphin Strong

The sun shone and smiles were everywhere at last Saturday's Keys Strong Dolphin party at Dolphin Research Center on Grassy Key. The dolphins were as excited to see people as the more than 1,000 people were to see them! DRC staff brought guests down on the docks to greet the dolphins with back rubs and high-fives and several people were fortunate when their ticket numbers were called and they were able to go into the water for a free Dolphin Encounter dolphin swim.

Always have a hurricane plan

I’ve been through a few hurricanes since 1979, and it’s unfortunate this hurricane took a sudden northeast jog before it landed on the Keys. Otherwise, it would have gone west of Key West perhaps. But as one can see, hurricanes can be very unpredictable, but they’re becoming more predictable every day.

Key West has many to be grateful for post-Irma

The pride I feel in being part of this amazing community, the gratitude I am filled with for the overwhelming support we have received across our tiny chain of islands and the newfound respect for the words “Conch Strong” and “Florida Keys Strong” are truly humbling. I will carry these overwhelming feelings and experiences with me long after my time as mayor of Key West has ended.

Kudos to Kmart for quick reopening

Returning to Key Largo after Hurricane Irma swept through our beloved islands, we saw that our first floor had held roughly 3 feet of water as the surge washed over the coral rock and inundated the mangroves growing alongside the house.

Never evacuating again

Why are property owners, tax paying property owners, being barred from their property Are we supposed to let everything rot and mold while those whom know what's best for us restore power, water, pave the roads and restore the Florida Keys to a condition before the hurricane?
