Erawan National Park
National Park in Thailand
Erawan National Park is a 550 km² park in western Thailand in the Tenasserim Hills of Kanchanaburi Province, Amphoe Si Sawat in tambon Tha Kradan. Founded in 1975, it was Thailand's 12th national park.
Very pleasant national park, very good for an outdoor day trip. Major attraction is 7 steps of waterfalls, which are fairly easy to reach, it takes about an hour to get to the last one (all of these are accessible for swimmers). There is some basic food and drinks available up.
Erawan National Park & Waterfalls in Kanchanaburi is an absolutely fantastic place to explore and well worth the visit. The park itself is 550 square kilometres located in Western Thailand. It is in the Tenasserim Hills of Kanchanaburi Province and was founded in 1975 as Thailands 12th national park. Inside the park, you will find Erawan Falls which is named after the three-headed white elephant Erawan from Hindu mythology. The falls…
This calm and composed national park is the best hiking place for beginners. You can hike up to 2.56 kilometers in about an hour or two. Avoid weekends and another public holiday to enjoy the exquisite beauty of the park and so many waterfalls in a single place. How to Reach Erawan National Park

MORE OF WYLANDS WORKS IN THE DECEMBER 14TH ISSUE; AND THEN DECEMBER 21 ISSUE HAS ANOTHER YEAR ROUND HANGING ARTIST FEATURED
We Start Part 2 of a few Parts of Classic Photos from the 60s and 70s. Important Note : Usually these Photopgraphic Features Specializing in (Groovy 60s and 70s Photographs) are from the Hundreds of the WWW.GROOVYHISTORY.COM Catalog. This Muti-Part Photographic Feature is Not.

A girl wears the groovy bell bottoms (1970s) 
Going to a 70s-themed party soon? All you need is a pair of bell bottoms and you're good to go. This fashion piece was a huge trend form the 1960s to the 1970s. Bell bottoms are those blue jeans that is tight in the upper half and wide at the bottom part— basically looks like a bell. The good thing about bell bottoms at the time was that it catered to all niches. Although at the of the decade, the only people left wearing that style were groovy hippies.
Behind the scenes of Steven Spielberg's film Jaws (1975) 
People today recognize the 1975 film Jaws as a classic, but at the time they were creating it, Stephen Spielberg's film production was practically drowning. You'd think using a fake shark rather than a real one would be less hassle, but it was just as hard. Film producer David Brown disclosed how the crew felt, "I remember being on set for the first shark test, and it simply sank. We thought our careers in motion pictures had gone with it. Everything that could go wrong with the shark went wrong."
Bill Paxton, Liam Neeson, and Patrick Swayze on the set of Next of Kin 
Wow, we could stare at this photo of these three handsome studs all day. They may all look like real brothers, but they're actually just castmastes from the 1980s film Next of Kin. Bill Paxton, Liam Neeson, and Patrick Swayze seemed to have really bonded during filming huh. In the movie, Swayze's character is an Appalachian man who moves to Chicago to join the police force. However circumstances lead him to return to his home to investigate the death of his brother. That sounds exciting.
Gilda Radner and Gene Wilder smile with their jack-o-lantern (1986) 
The story of these two workmates-turned-lovers is quite adorable. Gene Wilder and Gilda Radner met on the set of the film Hanky Panky in 1981. Dressed in a tuxedo, the latter introduced himself to Radner in the usual manner. Apparently, it was different for Radner. "Gilda said that I rubbed my crotch against her knee when I asked her if I could bring her some tea or coffee," he wrote in his book. "When she told me this story, I said, 'You're nuts!' And she said, 'No, they were your nuts.’" The couple stayed together until Radner passed away due to ovarian cancer.
John Candy with his kids and their dog (1989) 
It just hits different when you celebrities bonding with their family. It serves as a reminder that no matter how popular they are, they're also normal humans like us who have loved ones. John Candy was definitely one of those. According to Candy's daughter, Jen, her dad loved making people feel good, "He liked to make people laugh and feel good. And with certain kinds of charity work, especially with kids, he could do that, and that made him feel good."
Kris Kristofferson used to be a helicopter pilot 
Would you believe that that clean cut-looking gentleman was the same guy who wrote Sunday Morning Coming Down” and “Me and Bobby McGee?" Yes, that's Kris Kristofferson for us. Apparently, he was once a helicopter pilot. He was offered a teaching role at West Point, but our boy wanted to pursue music. Kristofferson was so determined to achieve his dream that he took any kind work he could find he moved Nashville. He would even clean toilets as a janitor and would fly a helicopter for an oil rig while he was write songs. His hardwork definitely paid off!

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.. Here are a few Photos that Daaisha Cochran Took

We Now Continue with Roberta's Photographic Journeys Around Key West

"It's hard to believe a year ago, Carolyn Daly and I had just gotten home from a one week Caribbean Cruise with the Young Living Beauty School. We visited St. Thomas, St. Johns and San Juan, Puerto Rico. Just a few of the shots I took... Enjoy from one Island to another...
We Now Start Part 6 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
79. 1971 DeTomaso Pantera
Model Year: 1971
Original Value: Under $10,000*
Current Value: $696,300*
Leno acquired a blue 1971 DeTomaso Pantera, which was designed by De Tomaso, an Italian sports car maker. The Pantera, which is Italian for Panther, was produced from ’71 to ’93, making Leno’s 2014 acquisition the earliest model of the model years. Despite being made by DeTomaso, the Pantera has a Ford Cleveland V8 5.8-liter engine under the hood, making it, as AutopiaLA said, a “true American supercar.” Leno claims that the Pantera never got its due, calling the sportscar “misunderstood.” He fell head over heels for the Pantera because it combined “supercar looks” with a “seventies glam” appeal.
80. 1981 DeLorean DMC-12
Model Year: 1981
Original Value: $25,000*
Current Value: $46,300*
This isn’t just any 1981 DeLorean DMC-12 sitting in Jay Leno’s Garage. He paid $750,000 to have an exact replica of the DeLorean from Back to the Future made and delivered to his house. In 2018, it became his daily driver. The DeLorean had a list price of $25,000 at the time, and its value has nearly doubled, as it is an antique (kind of). Leno’s DeLorean is so expensive because it is an exact replica of the famous movie car, all down to the last detail. The DeLorean isn’t perfect, however. Leno said that the stainless steel design is hard to fix if dented.

 
81. 1992 Dodge Viper
Model Year: 1992
Original Value: $52,000*
Current Value: $18,717*
The Dodge Viper is a prime candidate for Leno’s garage. It is a true American sports car, and, when it came out in 1992, people went crazy for it. The luxury car has an eight-liter V10 engine under the hood and gets 400HP. Leno’s Viper is bright red. However, it isn’t one of the rare ones. Leno originally wanted to be Dodge Viper #4 (i.e. the fourth one ever made), but Chrysler said no, even when he offered them $250K upfront. Instead, Chrysler ordered this rare Viper, as well as several other equally-rare treasures, to be destroyed. The reason is unclear. 
82. 1996 Dodge Viper GTS
Model Year: 1996
Original Value: $66,000*
Current Value: $77,000*
While Leno might not have gotten his Viper #4, he did gain a ’92 Viper, and a ’96 Viper (and, as you’ll see below, a very special ’93 Viper). His 1996 Dodge Viper GTS is blue and white, with a classic racing stripe down the center of the hood. Under the hood, like with the earlier Vipers, is an 8-liter V10 engine. The Viper comes with a six-speed manual and gets 415 horsepower, which is an improvement over earlier models. The GTS was fortuitously named to Haggerty’s “Hot List” of sports cars that would later become, as the publication put it, “Future Collectibles.” 

 
85. 2015 Dodge SRT Challenger Hellcat
Model Year: 2015
Original Value: $60,995*
Current Value: $60,990*
Very few cars are as monstrous as the Dodge Hellcat, and Leno owns a bright red one. Leno invited Tim Kuniskis, the president of Dodge, to talk about the red Hellcat, and he even took him on a test drive, though he didn’t push the Hellcat up to full speed. And it’s probably a good thing he didn’t, as the specs on the Hellcat are blistering. The top speed is 204 miles per hour, thanks to a turbocharged, 6.2-liter V8 engine under the hood. The Hellcat has a 0 to 60 time of less than four seconds, whether you have manual or automatic transmission.


 
 86. 2005 Ford GT
Model Year: 2005
Original Value: $151,242*
Current Value: $137,506*
Jay Leno actually filmed a documentary featuring his 2005 Ford GT, which he called Return to Le Mans. The 2005 Ford GT was designed by Camilo Pardo, who Jay Leno invited to his garage to talk about the design of the legendary supercar. Leno raced a Le Mans-winning car in his red-and-white GT, taking it for a spin on a nearby track. The GT has a 5.4-liter supercharged Modular V8 under the hood. It can do 0 to 60 in 3.5 seconds, and 0 to 100 in 7.4 seconds. It has a top speed of 205 miles per hour (faster than the 2015 Hellcat). 

89. 1910 White Steam Car Model 0-0
Model Year: 1910
Original Value: $3,000*
Current Value: $91,782.26*
This black and white steam car is one of the oldest members of Leno’s car collection, and it definitely counts as a historical car. The 1910 White Steam Car Model 0-0 was originally part of the Robert Ullrich Collection. This steam car is the last-known White Steam Car in the world. It was made right before the big switch from steam to gas power. Leno acquired Model 0-0 in 2014. The engine is a two-cylinder, steam-powered, of course, that gets 20 horsepower. As for torque, Jay Leno’s Garage simply put “???” in the margins. The top speed of the steam car is 50MPH.

We Continiue PART 6 OF JAY LENO'S GARAGE Feature A Few Features Down


87. 1965 Ford Mustang Shelby GT350
Model Year: 1965
Original Value: $4,311*
Current Value: $59,140*
This classic muscle car is another impressive buy for Jay Leno, who acquired the car in 2019. This is no ordinary 1965 Ford Mustang Shelby GT350. This GT250 is the original Venice crew’s competition car. But the Cobra was not built for easy driving or comfort: it was built to race. The Cobra that Leno acquired was assembled in San Jose. It was modified by Caroll Shelby in Venice Beach, and its official colors are “Wimbledon White.” The rocker stripes are “Guardsman Blue.” Leno’s Le Mans stripe on the hood is a rare feature, as very few originals actually had that put on the hood at the factory.

We Now Continue with Part 2 of a Few Issue : Classic / Iconic Photographs from the 60s and 70s

Sam Elliott and Cher in the movie Mask (1985) 
Did you know even celebrities could have a crush on their fellow celebrities? That was the case for Sam Elliot who barely kept it together while working with Cher on the 1985 film mask. Apparently, the Goddess of Pop was his childhood crush. "I was a Cher fan when I was still living up in Portland. My mom and I were there, and I was going to school, and my dad had died, but my mom and I used to watch The Sonny and Cher Show religiously. I’ve always had a thing for female singers, for whatever reason."


Robin Williams and John Ritter having a good time (1979)  
This photo may look like Robin Williams and John Ritter had known each other forever, but they never really worked together. Well, not if you count that 10 minute improv sketch they did together one in 1978 for an HBO comedy special. You can't really consider it as project involving the two of them because Williams literally pulled Ritter out of the audience. Wild! These comedic titans rose to fame in the 1970s. Williams and Ritter would go on to entertain the people through the 1980s and 1990s They may be long gone, but how ecstatic they made us feel will remain forever.
Frank Sinatra, Sammy Davis Jr, Dean Martin pose for a photo (1960s) 
What a fine gentlemen these trio make. Although they are just three of the infamous Rat Pack that actress Lauren Bacall named. The Rat Pack is composed of singers and actors who worked with Frank Sinatra. They would party around Las Vegas in between performing for thousands of fans and supporters. Contrary to the name they were best known, the gang disliked being referred to as the Rat Pack. They would have preferred being called “The Summit” or “The Clan.” Interesting. 
 
Real-life 'Rapunzel' Crystal Gayle (1982) 
When you're a singer that has a hair so long it reaches the ground, you definitely leave an impression. Crystal Gayle once described having her hair as to "wearing a gown." Aside from its unusual length, Gayle admitted that she hated to wash it because of its heaviness. Did we mention Peggy Lee and Loretta Lynn were her sisters? Gayle's crowning glory and family were not everything that make up the singer though. She really had talent. Her amazing hit songs include “If You Ever Change Your Mind.”
John Belushi and Dan Aykroyd as The Blues Brothers 
John Belushi and Dan Aykroyd appear again on this list but this time, as their role in The Blues Brothers. They were a blues and soul revivalist band as part of a musical sketch on Saturday Night Live. In the film, they wreck cars, destroy properties, and turn half of the country against them. So how did the two funny men came up with this idea? It happened when Belushi and Aykroyd were performing with Second City. They only got the opportunity to do it on the variety show
 
Jim Morrison and Ray Manzarek at the original Hard Rock Cafe (1969) 
The law that opposites attract seemed to apply to Jim Morrison and Ray Manzarek. Morrison was the cool guy, the poet who crooned in leather pants, and the lizard king himself. Meanwhile, Manzarek was the nerd type and the one who composed harpsichord pieces. They were polar opposites, but the two became friends and got along just fine. These budding musicians met in UCLA. Although Morrison only sang one of the songs he had written with Manzarek after graduation. His words were, “Man, this is incredible. Let's get a rock 'n' roll band together,” hence The Doors.
Jimi Hendrix enlisted in the Army in 1961 
Spoiler alert: The young Jimi Hendrix did not enlist himself to serve the country. It was either enter the military or go to jail for a car-stealing. Oh, boy. This really happened, as Hendrix's commanding officers would later on disclose some of his antics. According to them, he would sleep while on duty and he was a pretty awful marksman. He was supposed to stay for three years, but the military cut him loose by the end of his first year. They seemed to have had enough of him. 
 
Mark Hamill and Annie Potts pose for Corvette Summer 
After starring in a movie set in a galaxy far, far away, Mark Hamill ventured into other movie genres such as manga adaptations and teen romances. He co-starred alongside Annie Potts in the 1978 film Corvette Summer. Potts looked back on her experience working with the popular actor. "He is just a lovely person. I had no experience in film and Mark was very knowledgeable and very helpful. He was also a great teacher saying things like, ‘No, you don’t want to do that because of lighting.’ He was just lovely and we had a wonderful time..."

EMERGENCY DIRECTIVE FROM THE CITY OF KEY WEST PROCLAIMED ON 12/3/2020 IN EFFECT THURSDAY 12/31/2020 10PM TO SUNDAY JANUARY 3, 2021

Key West Mayor Teri Johnston, after an extensive discussion at Thursday’s City Commission meeting, has enacted an emergency directive providing for a curfew in order to avoid a public health emergency during the New Year’s holiday.
The directive reads: “Commencing on Thursday, December 31, 2020 at 10 p.m. and terminating on Sunday, January 3, 2021, at 6:00 a.m., a curfew is hereby imposed for the City of Key West, effective from 10 p.m. each night through 6 a.m. the next morning. All non-essential businesses shall close on or before 10 p.m. each night. Persons shall be in their residences or lodging establishments no later than 10:30 p.m. each night. During the period of such curfew, no person shall make use of any street or sidewalk for any purpose, except police, fire rescue, first responder, medical, health care, media, and utility repair service personnel.”
The curfew will not apply to: people returning directly to their homes from work at essential establishments or going directly to work at essential establishments from their homes; people making deliveries from essential establishments; people walking their dogs within 250 feet of their residences; and those traveling to or from any religious service.
---------------------------------------

Mayor Teri Johnston and the City Commission last night commended A.H. of Monroe County, Inc. on the completion of Marty’s Place, the new affordable housing complex near Key West High School.

“A.H. of Monroe County, Inc, formerly known as Aids Help continues to lead by example in creating new truly affordable housing for our community in Key West,” reads the commendation.

Marty’s Place provides 47 units for members of the community – many with disabilities – earning less than $42,000 a year with an affordable apartment.

Scott Pridgen, executive director of A.H. Monroe, accepted the commendation, noting that the organization has expanded its reach as needs in the community have expanded.

“This success is an example of what our community organizations can achieve in providing relief to the hundreds of community members and our workforce who remain on waitlists for affordable housing within the lower income categories,” Mayor Johnston wrote in the commendation.

NOVEMBER 19, 2020
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.

We Now Continue with Part 6 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
88. 2011 Chevrolet Volt
Model Year: 2011
Original Value: $41,000*
Current Value: $39,808*
At first, this might seem like one of Jay Leno’s more mundane purchases. He bought the 2011 Volt new right when it came out. The only noteworthy aspect of the Volt is that Leno has put 11,000 miles on it and still has the original tank of gas. He has never put gas into the Volt, preferring to only use the plug-in charge. At first, Leno was skeptical about “clean energy cars.” He actually did a monologue in the summer of 2010 trashing them. Fast-forward to fall of 2011, and he got back on stage to proclaim his love for the Volt.


90. 1966 Volga GAZ-21
Model Year: 1966
Original Value: $87.27*
Current Value: $29,999*
Jay Leno bought the 1966 Volga GAZ-21, a classic Soviet sedan, in 2014. This car is overbuilt and utilitarian to the core, with AutoBlog describing it as “hard-wearing.” The Volga’s “GAZ” denotation stands for Gorkovsky Avtomobilniy Zavod—Gorky Automobile Factory. The GAZ-21 was the first car to have the Volga nameplate.
The design of the Volga was specifically built to be the opposite of Western cars. They had high ground clearance, which would contrast them with low-slung Western cars. The suspension was extremely strong, and the rustproofing on the vehicle was perhaps its most impressive feature. Only Soviet government officials had enough money to afford the Volga.

 
91. 2012 Tesla Model S
Model Year: 2012
Original Value: $57,400*
Current Value: $62,400*
In 2012, Elon Musk, the head of Tesla, went to Jay Leno’s Garage to visit with him and talk about the Model S, which was the flagship design of the electric car company. Leno was one of the first purchasers, and he was a little uncertain at first. He now is a big fan of Musk and Tesla. The Model S was revolutionary eight years ago. The highly-rated car gets 362 to 416 horsepower and has a range of 136-251 miles of battery-only power. The MGPe is 88 in the city and 90 on the highway, making the Tesla Model S one of the biggest energy-saving cars out.. 
.
92. 2012 Tata Nano
Model Year: 2012
Original Value: $1,326.30*
Current Value: $3,332.25*
Another 2012 acquisition for Leno was a foreign car—specifically, the Tata Nano. He added the car to his collection in May of 2012. He described the Nano as a “great city car.” The Tata Nano is certainly small, and could probably park on the sidewalk if the owners were in a pinch. The India-designed car has a MPFI 0.624-liter engine that gets 37HP. The Nano is 1,400 pounds at the most. It is 65 inches in height and 122 inches long. The Nano was discontinued in 2018 as sales dropped. Tata folded in 2018, making the Nano a thing of the past.


 
93. 1922 Stanley Steamer
Model Year: 1922
Original Value: $500-$600*
Current Value: $40,000*
Leno’s 1922 Stanley Steamer, painted a forest green color, is another piece of auto history. The Steamer (not to be confused with Stanley Steemer, the carpet-cleaning company) was designed by F.E. and F.O. Stanley, whose company was the largest manufacturer of steam-powered cars in the world. The Steamer was pretty quick for its time, setting the world record for speed when it ran a mile in 28.2 seconds. The only vehicle faster than the Steamer on the road was a motorcycle with a V8 engine. The Stanley Motor Carriage Company went out of business after 22 years, closing its doors in 1924.   
 
94. 1931 Shotwell
Model Year: 1931
Original Value: $1,100*
Current Value: $415,000*
This three-wheeled car is a one-off vehicle. In fact, Leno owns the only 1931 Shotwell ever made. A seventeen year-old named Bob Shotwell made this car. The car passed down through the family until 1999, when Bob Shotwell’s descendants wrote Jay Leno a letter. They explained that they had a car he might be interested in (even before his garage, he was still known as a major collector). Leno was impressed by the rarity of the car, as well as the fact that a teenager built it. The Shotwell, in addition to having three wheels, is unique because it runs on a four-cylinder motorcycle engine made in India.
95. 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.”
96. 1972 Mercedes-Benz 600 Kompressor
Model Year: 1972
Original Value: $19,900*
Current Value: $46,500*
This is another one of Leno’s favorites. Described by Jalopnik as the “Ultimate Mercedes-Benz,” the 1972 Mercedes-Benz 600 Kompressor is a hydraulic-intensive speed machine. The “Kompressor” badge indicates that this didn’t roll off a factory lineup—Leno had it personalized. The Kompressor debuted on Jay Leno’s Garage in 2014. Leno’s is the only 600 Kompressor in existence. The 600 was an ultra-luxe model that was favored by celebrities, politicians, tycoons, and even royalty. Karl Middlehauve & Associates fitted Leno’s 600 with a supercharger. Other famous owners of 600s include Ringo Starr, Jack Nicholson, Karen Carpenter, the King of Morocco, Papa Doc Duvalier, Mao Zedong, and more.

A few Messages that deserve to be Repeated

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.
