The Gardens Hotel owner Kate Miano presented the Key West Police Mounted Unit with a check for over $6,000 -- funds raised in the May Derby Day fundraiser at the hotel.

Miano has hosted this annual fundraiser since 2017. Each year she has generously donated to the Mounted Unit after hosting the event that coincides with the Kentucky Derby.

The Mounted Unit is one of the most popular units of the Key West Police Department. These equestrian officers provide a daily presence that is particularly beneficial downtown and with crowds.

The City of Key West will be resurfacing the playground at the Truman Waterfront Park. The playground will be closed from June 24th to June 30th.

However, the splash pad will remain open for use during this time.

We apologize for the inconvenience, but the kids will love the nice new flexi-pave!


Two families who tragically lost their sons were commended by the City Commission this week for joining together and raising $30,000 to donate to the Nicklaus Children’s Hospital Heart Institute.

Harrison Axel Esquinaldo was born on May 18, 2016 and passed away when he was 11 days old due to complex congenital heart defects. Max Thomas Scanlon passed away at his birth on October 10, 2019, due to heart defects.

The families came up with a way to honor their sons and to help other families who are also facing this unthinkable tragedy.

In April Max’s Angels and Esky Rods hosted the second annual Reelin’ for The Cause' Kids' Fishing Tournament at the Edward B. Knight White Street Pier. With the help of civic organizations and the community, they were able to raise the donation for the heart institute.

The family noted that they just couldn’t do it without the incredible support from the community.


Mayor Teri Johnston and the City Commission commended the Key West Lady Conchs Girls Softball Team for their outstanding season.

The team won the regional championship on May 20th and became the first ever Key West High School softball team to advance to the State Championship Series.

Coach Jason Garcia, Assistant Coach Erik Snow, and the team accepted the commendation.

"They say it takes a village to raise a kid," said Coach Garcia, "Well, it takes a community to have a quality softball team. I said here last year that we'd go to the state championships, and we look forward to doing it again next year."

City Attorney Shawn Smith, whose daughter is on the team, reiterated Coach Garcia's statement. He noted that this same group of young women has appeared annually in front of the commission, earning kudos for their softball accomplishments as they grew from the eight and under league to where they are today.

The commendation also recognized the team's leadership. "Coach Jason Garcia, assistant coach Erik Snow and pitching coach Jewls Castillo continue to do an outstanding job with the development of contenders and athletes," reads the commendation.


Mayor Teri Johnston and the City Commission commended the Key West High School Baseball Team for their outstanding season.

The 2022 baseball program for Key West High School won the 4A District 16 Championship on May 5th, 2022. The Conchs baseball program earned their #1 seed in the regional playoffs by commanding a spectacular 23 and 7 record for the season.

"The baseball team and coaches have shown," reads the commendation, "that through tenacity and perseverance, the spirit of 'Conch Ball' remains intact.

"Coach Ralph Henriquez and son Ralph Henriquez Jr. continue to add to the legacy of performance," it continues, "Coach Henriquez collected over 350 wins in his Key West High coaching career."

The team thanked the commission and the Key West community for their support
