Jill and Sean send Holiday Greetings and Tell Us :
Key West Artisan Market Scheduled to Start Sunday Cancelled Until Further Notice..ALSO PLEASE READ FOR TRUMAN WATERFRONT FARMERS MARKET Change in Days /Hours tyo Accommodate for Holiday Shopping
 
Per the City of Key West: “With due regard to the safe and healthy environment in Key West, the City has cancelled the Holiday Parade and all special events on City property through December 31st due to the concerns regarding the COVID-19 increase in cases in Key West and Monroe County.” This includes the Key West Artisan Market which was scheduled to start this Sunday, November 22 at Indigenous Park. After months of delay by Monroe County for permits at the Higgs beach location next to the dog park, the City had reached out to organizers to offer the new location in the parking lot of the Wildlife Bird Sanctuary as an alternative. The City Commission passed the resolution unanimously at the November 17 meeting. In the few days since, the Commission passed a strengthened face covering mandate at an emergency meeting and have been working on other measures to help lower potential COVID exposure.
 
"We are devastated for our artists, vendors and mom and pop businesses who have worked hard to beef up inventory to meet the demands of this popular market," organizer Sean Krikorian said. "Many of them have had very limited opportunity to make any income during the seven months of being shut down. But at the same time we stand behind the City's decision to keep our community safe and appreciate all they are doing to move Key West in a better direction." Krikorian acknowledged. 

For now, the Key West Truman Waterfront Farmers Market will be allowed to continue as it is considered an essential service by the state of Florida. With Thanksgiving on Thursday, the Market will move to Friday and operate from 10 am to 6 pm. The Market hopes to move to Wednesday the week of Christmas and New Year to avoid conflicting with Christmas and New Years eve.
 
"Safety for our guests and participants at all the Markets is our highest priority," Krikorian stated. “We will continue to work with the City to develop protocols that hopefully will allow us to continue operating the Farmers Market and open the Artisan Market soon."

' The Seven Year Itch '

Film star Marilyn Monroe poses over a Manhattan subway grate

 ' The Seven Year Itch ' in New York City. 
Reportedly, Monroe's husband Joe DiMaggio was displeased 
at the attention his wife received from the crowds.


Presented as a limited edition, fine art print on
 archival paper with a hand-torn deckled-edge of only 75 prints
 in each size. This edition has been retired -

Standard size is approx. 32" x 28" framed - $695
Deluxe size is approx. 35" x 44" framed - $1095

BIG NEWS! We have worked for months on a COVID plan that would allow us to present theater "live" while ensuring the health and well-being of everyone involved. Our board members agreed that a space we could "control" was a must. We are excited to announce that Fringe will be renting the first floor at the Armory, located at 600 White Street, from the Historic Florida Keys Foundation. This is a big move for us -- in more ways than one. But we believe it's the right move since it lets us present our 2020-21 Main Stage season in a space that accommodates social distancing and all the other appropriate health protocols. We've got lots more great news to announce about our season. We're going to be trying a lot of things, and we hope that you will be there with us ... in whatever way makes you comfortable! 'Fringe at the Armory' will remain Key West's community-focused theater. Now more than ever! www.fringetheater.org

MONROE COUNTY, FL – At Tuesday’s Board of County Commissioner’s meeting, the board chose Mayor Pro Tem Michelle Coldiron to serve as Monroe County Mayor and Commissioner David Rice to serve as Mayor Pro Tem for the next year. Mayor Coldiron is in her first term as commissioner and Mayor Pro Tem Rice is in his fourth term.
 
Mayor Coldiron and Mayor Pro Tem Rice recognized outgoing Mayor Heather Carruthers for her mayoral duties for the past year.
 
The mayor title is given to the chairperson of the Board of County Commissioners. The commissioners choose the designee based on a majority vote, usually at the November board meeting. A mayor pro tem is also designated to fill in when the mayor is unavailable. The mayor presides over the Board of County Commissioners meetings and serves as the Monroe County representative at ceremonial occasions. The mayor is also responsible for signing and cosigning documents with the County Clerk.
 
In addition to the ceremonial passing of the sanitized gavel, newly elected District Three Commissioner Eddie Martinez and District Five Commissioner Mike Forster were sworn in by the Clerk of the Court Kevin Madok.

We Now Start Part 4 of Probably 8 Weeks of showing an AMAZING 120+ Collection of Classic Cars Owned by Jay Leno "Jay Leno's Garage". He also had a CNBC TV Show Featuring his 120 Classic Cars WWW.LENOSGARAGE.COM
49. 1973 Citroen SM 5 Speed
Model Year: 1973
Original Value: $13,000*
Current Value: $55,000*
Ron Susser sold Jay Leno this teal blue 1973 Citroen SM 5-Speed. This car, which has a five-speed manual transmission and a 3-liter motor, is one of the rarest iterations of the Citroen SM out there. The SM is a high-performance car. Leno’s is, of course, a coupe. The SM was one of just 2,500. It won third place in the European Car of the Year contest in 1971. It fared better in America, winning the Motor Trend Car of the Year Award in 1972. Under the hood is a V6. It was designed by Robert Opron from 1970 until 1975.
50. 1925 Doble E-20 Steam Car
Model Year: 1925
Original Value: $20,000*
Current Value: $250,000*
Jay Leno owns Car #20 of the Doble Steam Car lineup. As seen, Leno likes anything antique or rare, and the Doble fits that bill. His #20 was built by Abner Doble, who started constructing cars when he was a young teenager. Doble started at MIT in 1910, but he dropped out to build cars. The Steam Car was constructed from 1909 until 1931. Its latter models, which had a fast-firing boiler and an electric start, both were considered pinnacles of steam car development in their day, dominating the early twentieth century. There were thirty-three engine numbers in total



 
51. 1918 Stutz Bearcat
Model Year: 1918
Original Value: $2,550*
Current Value: $275,000*
The Henry Ford Museum described the 1923 Stutz Bearcat as the first American Sportscar. Leno owns one a little more antique than that—the 1918 Bearcat. The Bearcat was the sportscar to have before WWI (and for a little while after, too). Under the hood was a straight-four engine that got sixty HP. The car had minimal bodywork, which was consistent for race cars at the time. It had open bucket seats, a small monocle windscreen, and a “dog house” hood. This racer placed eleventh in the Indy 500 in 1911, leading Stutz to come up with the slogan, “The car that made good in a day.”

 
52. 1932 Duesenberg SJ Murphy-Convertible
Model Year: 1932
Original Value: $20,000*
Current Value: $22 milIon
Leno can be spotted driving around California in his 1932 Duesenberg SJ Murphy-Convertible, which has such low seating that even he can’t see over the wheel (and he’s almost six feet tall). Leno’s Model J is a full-size luxury car. The car was introduced to the world in 1928, one year before the stock market crashed and the Great Depression began. So, for four years, the Model J had a bit of a hiatus. It was then re-offered in 1932, this time with a supercharger. The Model J was sold until 1937. Under the hood is a powerful seven-liter DOHC straight-eight engine. 
 

 
53. 1961 Volga GAZ-21
Model Year: 1961
Original Value: $69.29*
Current Value: $337,000*
Leno’s 1961 Volga GAZ-21 is certainly one of his most unique cars. The Soviet sedan was designed back when Russia was still under the control of the SSR. The Soviets were known for their high-performing aeronautic and weapons technology, so you would think that their cars would be equally-impressive.
Not quite. One mechanic publication described the Volga as “an anvil.” The Volga was a status symbol in the Soviet Union—only rich, connected people could afford one, which meant that the production was limited. The KGB drove these exact models, except painted all-black. The Russians called these “the Black Ravens” (Chernyy voron). Leno’s 1961 Volga GAZ-21 is certainly one of his most unique cars. The Soviet sedan was designed back when Russia was still under the control of the SSR. The Soviets were known for their high-performing aeronautic and weapons technology, so you would think that their cars would be equally-impressive.


 
54. 1961 Chrysler 300G
Model Year: 1961
Original Value: $5,400*
Current Value: $164,500*
Leno owns this rare Chrysler. His 1961 Chrysler 300G is one of just 1,280 made. The 300G was designed by Virgil Exner, and it marked the end of the “Forward-Looking” era of Chrysler. Exner would later claim that his ’61 Chrysler was the last stylish car. He once referred to the 1962 Chrysler as a “plucked chicken.”
Leno himself pointed out that this car, though it’s a huge, nineteen-foot-long, 4,200-pound-car, is actually lighter than the Dodge Hellcat out today. The car lacks safety equipment, but it does get 375 horsepower. Under the hood, you’ll find a 4.13-liter engine.
55. 2008 Corvette C6RS by Pratt & Miller
Model Year: 2008
Original Value: $260,000*
Current Value: $330,000*
2008 Corvette C6RS by Pratt & Miller was a specially-created Corvette. Leno teamed up with designers to make a C6RS that ran on E85 ethanol, making it more eco-friendly than your average gas guzzler. The C6RS is really just a converted Z06. Pratt & Miller is the design company behind the conversion.
Why is this edition special? It all has to do with what’s under the hood. Leno’s P&M Corvette has a Katech Performance 8.2-liter engine. It gets 600 horsepower, 600 pound-feet of torque, and a top speed of 202 miles per hour. Only seven of these were ever built. Leno debuted his at the SEMA Show in 2007.

The City of Key West offices will be closed Thursday, November 26th and Friday, November 27th for the Thanksgiving holiday. Normal business hours will resume on Monday, November 30th.
There will be no bus service on Thursday, November 26th. This long-standing tradition allows our drivers to spend Thanksgiving with their families. Normal bus service will resume on Friday, November 27th.

----------------------------------------------

During Tuesday’s regular City Commission meeting, Mayor Teri Johnston proclaimed this week as National Hunger and Homeless Awareness Week.
This annual observation comes as many prepare for the Thanksgiving holiday. This year this situation is particularly dire as so many struggle with job loss, loss of homes, and hunger.
Florida Keys Outreach Coalition’s Stephanie Kaple noted, as she accepted the proclamation, that many organizations and local governments have been contributing to ensure that no one in the community goes hungry.
For the past 30 years the National Coalition for the Homeless and National Student Campaign Against Hunger and Homelessness have sponsored National Hunger and Homelessness Awareness Week to help to educate the public about the many reasons people are hungry and homeless including the shortage of affordable housing in the City of Key West, especially for very low income residents.
The proclamation also encourages support of homelessness assistance service providers as well as community service opportunities for students and school service organizations.

 

-------------------------------------------------------------

 The City of Key West is complying with Executive Order 20-244 under the statewide opening rules set forth by Governor Ron DeSantis, while keeping in place the safety measures that have been implemented during the COVID-19 pandemic to protect the residents and visitors of the City.
All individuals over the age of six who are physically located within the City must wear a face covering at all times when they are away from their residence with certain exceptions. All businesses must ensure masks are always worn by employees and the public. A copy of Emergency Ordinance 20-14 may be found here: https://www.cityofkeywest-fl.gov/DocumentCenter/View/1441.
Per the Governor’s Order suspending the collection of all fines and penalties applied to individuals for violating the City’s COVID-19 public health ordinances and directives, the City of Key West will continue to issue civil citations for individuals not wearing masks and will process fines and penalties upon the lifting of the Governor’s Order. Any fines and penalties assessed against businesses will continue to be enforced and collected.
As the holiday season approaches and given the recent increase in positive reported cases of COVID-19 within the City of Key West, it is important that we continue our efforts to reduce the spread of COVID-19 by hand-washing, social distancing and wearing our masks. The City reminds the community that the consistent usage of masks and other facial coverings will help the City avoid future business closures and is a more cost-effective means of addressing the COVID-19 pandemic.
---------------------------------------------------------
At the beginning of Tuesday’s City Commission meeting, City Clerk Cheri Smith administered the oath of office to newly reelected District VI Commissioner Clayton Lopez.
Serving on the dais since 2005, this will be Commissioner Lopez’s last term, due to term limits. Joining the Commissioner for the swearing in were his wife Pam and daughter Atavia.

We Now start Part 5 WWW.GROOVYHISTORY.COM
Stunning Photos From The Past Sure To Cause Nostalgia!
Written by Lyra Radford
(There is a very Brief Bio on Lyra Further Down)
 
Do you ever just look at photo albums at home? How about browse through your camera roll on your phone? No matter how you do it, seeing old pictures brings back memories of the past and reminds you of a familiar feeling. Whether you've lived through the groovy era or just really curious how fashionable and marvelous it was, we want you to have the same experience here. This collection of beautiful photos will transport you back to time and astound you with that nostalgic pang. Are you ready for it?

Jim Henson smiles in a sea of Muppets (1970) 
We have the talented impresario Jim Henson to thank for for our colorful childhood. The Muppets that became our friends wouldn't have existed without him. They were practically his babies. With his imaginative skills, he puppeteered them like a madman with more than two arms. This photo makes us smile because we know how much dedication Henson gave to entertain and educate the kids of the 1970s. He gave up much of his personal life to create the show, and it seemed totally worth it.


A young Sally Field smiles right through the camera (1975) 
This photo of a younger Sally Fields proves that she has always radiated the same beauty and warmth as an American sweetheart. Surprisingly, the award-winning actress admitted that she didn't actually feel the same love back in the 1970s. 

Raquel Welch guest stars as Captain Nirvana in "Mork & Mindy" (1979) 
Millions of viewers followed the 1970s show Mork and Mindy starring Robin Williams. During its second season, Raquel Welch landed a guest role as Captain Nirvana in their hour-long special “Mork vs. the Necrotons.” It resulted to the show garnering a higher rating. The truth is, they marketed the episode well by banking on Welch’s appearance. The tagline for the special read, "Raquel Welch stars as the sultry space spy who wants More… real bad.” Guess that worked out well for the show.


Audrey Hepburn basks in the sun (1950s) 
Was there ever a picture of Audrey Hepburn that didn't exude her beauty and grace? That doesn't seem likely. The fashion icon was not only loved for her still photos, but even moreso for her films. Despite her success, Hepburn showcased humility in her work. In an interview with the New York Times, the Roman Holiday actress tried to decipher why theatergoers supported her, "People have recognized something in me they have themselves -- the need to receive affection and the need to give it. Does that sound soppy?" No, Audrey, it doesn't

Ann-Margret and Tina Turner attend the premiere of Tommy (1975) 
This stunning photo of Ann-Margret and Tina Turner does not even give justice to the two actresses' solid friendship. It wasn't hard for them to forge a bond upon appearing in Tommy because they both loved singing. When Turner finally decided to leave her abusive husband, Ann-Margret was even there to give advice. In an interview with the EW, Turner shared that Ann-Margret connected her with a good divorce lawyer. It helped the singer achieve freedom for a mighty settlement. Friendship goals!

Natalie Wood and her sister Lana look like twins (1960s)
The resemblance of Natalie and Lana Wood is uncanny! These two celebrity sisters were as close as their appearances could be. Although according to Lana, they couldn't be more different, "As far as the difference between us, Natalie was very cautious about what she said. I never thought about that. It isn’t that I didn’t have a filter — I did — but if things go wrong, I tell someone about it." The two were as thick as thieves that when Natalie mysteriously drowned in 1981, Lana made it her life’s mission to shed light on the case and bring justice to her sister's death.
A boy riding a Schwinn orange 5-speed, stick-shift bike (1960s) 
Oh, what we would give to ride a Schwinn Sting-Ray. Before scooters and hoverboards were a thing, you were already considered cool if you owned this iconic bike in the 1960s. Looking at the picture, we totally get the hype of wanting to tear down the streets with this bad boy. The two-wheeler was as functional as appealing though. You could shift its gears plus it had a seat that helped you lean all the way back. Some owners would even customize it with different handlebars, flags, and larger wheels.

We Now Continue with Part 4 of Probably 8 Weeks of showing an AMAZING 120+ Collection of Classic Cars Owned by Jay Leno "Jay Leno's Garage". He also had a CNBC TV Show Featuring his 120 Classic Cars WWW.LENOSGARAGE.COM
56. 1953 Cunningham C3
Model Year: 1953
Original Value: $8,000-$11,000*
Current Value: $550,000*
Leno’s C3 was purchased right after a restoration, making it one of the few Cunninghams in good condition. Briggs Cunningham, the designer, was from a super-wealthy family. One of his passions included cars (and yachts and sports). He decided to try his hand at building supercars.
 
This isn’t the first Cunningham vehicle that Jay Leno owns. His other model is an even more vintage 1920 Cunningham. Leno’s 1953 Cunningham C3 is very rare, with just twenty-five ever built. The C3 was built in Italy by Vignale. It used Chrysler parts under the hood, with a Hemi V-8 engine.


57. Blastolene Special Twin Turbo
Model Year: 2003
Original Value: $125,000*
Current Value: $350,000*
Also called the “Tank Car,” the Blastolene Special Twin Turbo was designed by Randy Grubb, a master craftsman. There are just one of these cars in existence, and Leno owns it. He drives it around in public and often puts it on display at various car shows and meet-and-greets. The Tank Car is unique because it runs on a military tank engine.
It has a custom-made, all-aluminum body. The car gets 810 horsepower and 1,560 pound-feet of torque. Some of the many interior changes Leno made to it included twin turbochargers to the engine, courtesy of Gale Banks Engineering
.

 
58. 1928 Bugatti Type 37A
Model Year: 1928
Original Value: $1,000*
Current Value: $2.6 million-$3.2 million*
Leno’s 1928 Bugatti Type 37A was originally owned by a Bugatti test driver named Pierre Veyron (the last name would later be used in the nameplate of Bugatti’s Veyron line of luxury vehicles). Veyron was a WWII resistance fighter, in addition to his racecar driving day-job.
Leno’s Bugatti was actually used to race in the late 1920s before Veyron was swept up in WWII. Leno made very few changes to the car, changing only what he had to in order to keep it in tip-top shape. He wanted to honor Pierre Veyron by keeping his prized 37A in perfect (and original) condition. 
.
59. Citroen SM series
Model Year: 1971
Original Value: $11,700*
Current Value: $50,600*
 
Viewers of Jay Leno’s Garage got to watch Leno change the tires on his 1971 Citroen. This isn’t the first of the Citroen series that he owns. This 1971 DS
Pallas is innovative, and it was first introduced to the public in 1955. Leno purchased one of the last of the lineup.
He later said that he had a “deep appreciation” for Citroen. He added an air conditioning unit to his ’71 car, using one from a crashed 1972 Citroen. Other than that air-con unit, everything in the car is as it was in 1971. Leno said that the car has surprisingly smooth handling. 


 
60. 1966 Dodge Coronet
Model Year: 1966
Original Value: $7,625*
Current Value: $19,500*
Jay Leno’s 1966 Dodge Coronet 500 is an example of a muscle car that wasn’t flashy but still got the job done. Leno’s Coronet is painted black-and-white, and it is actually an old police car. The Coronet 500 was used by cops to patrol the streets in the sixties and seventies (as fans of The Blues Brothers know).
Under the hood of Leno’s Coronet is a Hemi 426 engine. There are no hood scoops or stripes, making it all about performance. The reason Chrysler included a Hemi 426 under the hood was to make it eligible for racing in NASCAR events.    
 
62. 1937 Bugatti Atlantique
Model Year: 1937 
Original Value: Unlisted
Current Value: $18 million*
The 1937 Bugatti Type 57 SC is one of the most expensive cars in the world, thanks to its rarity. The 1936 edition of the Type 57 Atlantique is owned by designer Ralph Lauren, who purchased this car for $40 million. Leno’s SC is from the next model year, but it is still a rare beauty. Leno’s Atlantique is one of the very few replicas to actually be built on a real, genuine chassis from Bugatti. So, although it is a replica, it is an exact copy. The Atlantique was known for its modern shape and very mysterious, almost clouded history. 
63. 1918 Cadillac Type 57 Victoria
Model Year: 1918
Original Value: $4,000*
Current Value: $35,200*
Jay Leno owns a 1918 Cadillac Type 57 Victoria Model. His model is unrestored and original. He compared it to a CTS-V from 1918 because it is a luxury and an example of a truly antique vehicle. The 1918 Victoria, despite being unrestored, is actually in pristine condition, as Leno’s model sat in a GM showroom for decades. It has a V8 engine and a closed-roof design, the latter of which Cadillac pioneered. The Victoria was the first car in the entire auto industry to have detachable cylinder heads on its engine. The car weighed just under 4,000 pounds.  
We continue with with Part 5 of Jay Leno's Garage in the November 30th. Issue

Stunning Photos From The Past Sure To Cause Nostalgia!
Written by Lyra Radford
(There is a very Brief Bio on Lyra Further Down)
  
Do you ever just look at photo albums at home? How about browse through your camera roll on your phone? No matter how you do it, seeing old pictures brings back memories of the past and reminds you of a familiar feeling. Whether you've lived through the groovy era or just really curious how fashionable and marvelous it was, we want you to have the same experience here. This collection of beautiful photos will transport you back to time and astound you with that nostalgic pang. Are you ready for it? 


 Sonny and Cher have major cowboy vibes (1970s) 
Sonny and Cher were a powerful couple in the 1960s. It didn't matter that they were 10 years apart in age. They had an instant connection both in the studio and out. In the 1970s, they have risen to fame that they had their own TV show, The Sonny & Cher Comedy Hour. Behind the scenes though, their tandem was already falling out. For the sake of their public image, Sonny and Cher tried to stay together. Even after their divorce, the duo remained close until Sonny's death in 1998.
 
Brooke Shields in the film The Blue Lagoon (1980) 
Teenage Brooke Shields first captured the attention of audiences as Emmeline Lestrange in the film Blue Lagoon. In an interview with the Guardian, she opened up about her fear of people using her attractive nature against her. Shields said, "In Blue Lagoon, I’m using a glue gun, taping my hair, anything I can so my body doesn’t show I have [breasts]… And I didn’t realize I was doing it, because I was a kid. I was in a cocoon with my mom."


Young Al Pacino and Robert De Niro in the streets of NYC (1977) 

Consider us among the supporters of this ultimate bromance. Al Pacino and Robert De Niro have been pals for around 50 years now. They've appeared in movies such as 1974’s The Godfather Part II and 1995's Heat. It's hard not to stare at their handsome faces especially when they're together. 
In an interview with GQ, Pacino recalled his first meeting with De Niro, "I remember the meeting very clearly. Unbelievably, I saw this guy, I thought, Wow, he’s got such charisma. He wasn’t doing anything. He was just walking. Remember? You know, he was Bob. But you felt something from him."
This cool Yvonne Craig as 'Batgirl' on the Batman TV series (1966)

Yvonne Craig may have appeared late and was just added on the last season of Batman, but she came prepared and fit just right in. She found it a great gig. In an interview with Closer Weekly, she said, "It was a wonderful job that gave me a place to go... It did for me what I wanted it to do, which I realized when a little girl walked up to me one day in the supermarket and said, ‘I know who you really are. You’re really Barbara Gordon!’ Just wonderful! "
 

Cary Grant takes a photo with Elton John at one of his sold out concerts 
In 1975, Elton John performed two sold-out shows at the Dodger Stadium in Los Angeles. It was such a hit that even Hollywood A-listers like Cary Grant attended it. At the time, the music icon was already one of the biggest acts around. Everyone was looking forward to his amazing stage show and hit songs. On one of those nights, Elton John played 31 songs across multiple sets that lasted for three hours. Wow. He really the audience a run for their money.
  
An elegant Ann-Margret wearing a huge diamond on her finger (1965) 
This vintage photo of Ann-Margret looking effortlessly gorgeous is proof that perfect photos exist. The Swedish born actress has been making guys swoon and making girls wish they were her ever since she appeared in the Frank Capra film Pocketful of Miracles. In 1965, she starred in the huge film The Cincinnati Kid with Steve McQueen. Ann-Margret shared that she and McQueen easily got together while filming because of their love of riding motorcycles. Now we can't help but wonder if they rode motorcycles together beyond the movie.
Eddie Murphy and Richard Pryor talk about comedy (1980s)  
Richard Pryor was basically king of comedy already when Eddie Murphy burst into the scene. Even though Murphy looked up to Pryor, there was initially a tension between them because back then it rarely happened for many black comedians to be recognized. In an interview with Jerry Seinfeld, Murphy explained, "Back when I broke, the town was still doing a one black guy at a time thing. So when I showed up, Richard kind of had this—there was this feeling like this was the new one, so Richard kind of felt threatened." In an interview with Jerry Seinfeld, Murphy explained, "Back when I broke, the town was still doing a one black guy at a time thing. So when I showed up, Richard kind of had this—there was this feeling like this was the new one, so Richard kind of felt threatened."
Joe Namath wearing a fur coat on the sidelines during a game (1971) 
Bet you've never seen any other athletes with the same sense of style as Joe Namath. The legendary Jets quarterback was enjoyable to watch on the field, but he was equally a feast to the eyes in the sidelines. Aptly nicknamed "Broadway Joe," the NFL star had a dramatic flair for wearing mink coats. If you’re not fond of sport, you would still recognize his unique fashion sense. He would wear massive fur coats to groovy bell bottoms with kooky patterns. 
The November 30th. Issue will have (Part 6 from Lyra Radford and WWW.GROOVYHISTORY.COM ) Many Additional Photos of "Stunning Photos from the Past SURE to Cause NOSTALGIA" WWW.GROOVYHISTORY.COM

ALYSON CREAN CITY OF KEY WEST COMMUNICATIONS

Here are a few Photos from Past Key West Ambassador Classes The First Below taken by Roger McVeight (Class #8) and the Second Below taken by Alyson Crean and is the Graduating Class of 2014

A Mssage from Alyson Crean and The City of Key West

In light of the rising number of Covid-19 cases in Key West, the City has decided to go virtual with the annual tree lighting and menorah lighting ceremonies.
To avoid creating a large gathering, the community will be able to enjoy both ceremonies via Facebook live. The virtual tree lighting will be shown at 6 p.m. on November 30th. The virtual menorah lighting will be shown at 5:15 on December 10th.
“We’ve had to learn to adjust during this pandemic,” said City Manager Greg Veliz, “and still find ways to do those things that bring us joy during the holidays.”
The City attempted to create a Holiday Parade that would keep the community socially distanced. However, there were only a handful of groups who submitted applications, so the parade has been cancelled.
Everyone is encouraged to find special ways to replace these traditions in this difficult year, things you can do safely social distanced. If we continue to wash, mask and distance, we’ll be doing these traditions together next year.

THE CITY OF KEY WEST HAS A NEW MASK ORDINANCE

The Key West City Commission today amended the City’s mask ordinance in light of the current spike in Covid-19 cases.
After an in-depth discussion, the commission voted unanimously to remove an exemption that had allowed the removal of masks outdoors. The City now requires the wearing of masks any time a resident or a visitor steps out of their residence, they must wear a mask regardless of the ability to social distance
“We’re trying to regain control of our more crowded outdoor areas,” City Manager Greg Veliz told the commission.
During Tuesday’s meeting, the commission discussed creating mask zones for the busiest areas. However, City Attorney Shawn Smith said zoning would create a patchwork that could lead to inconsistency as well as creating a difficulty for enforcement.
To read the ordinance in its entirety, go to www.cityofkeywest-fl.gov.
