    Support quality music in the Keys

    The Florida Keys Concert Association just closed its 46th consecutive season with concerts in Marathon and Islamorada by the acclaimed piano duo Anagnoson and Kinton. As we begin preparing for next year's season, on behalf of the entire board of directors, I would like to thank our artists for ...

A plethora of documents attest to this fact. It wasn't always that way. A local (Key West) special...


    DOT wasting money on Upper Keys landscaping

Sure enough, we have beautiful trees in our islands and they are actually from here, not brought from some where else to "beautify" our...
