David Crosby, the legendary singer-songwriter and founding member of the Byrds and Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young, has died, a source close to the musician confirmed Thursday. He was 81. The two-time Rock & Roll Hall of Fame inductee died after a long illness, his wife said in a statement to Variety.
"He was lovingly surrounded by his wife and soulmate Jan and son Django," she told the outlet. "Although he is no longer here with us, his humanity and kind soul will continue to guide and inspire us. His legacy will continue to live on through his legendary music." In a Facebook post, former bandmate Graham Nash recalled the focus on their sometimes-volatile relationship — Crosby lashed out at him publicly as recently as two years ago in an interview with the Guardian — but said that the "pure joy" of making music with Crosby was what mattered most.
"David was fearless in life and in music," Nash said. "He leaves behind a tremendous void as far as sheer personality and talent in this world. He spoke his mind, his heart, and his passion through his beautiful music and leaves an incredible legacy. These are the things that matter most." Crosby’s final release, “Live at the Capitol Theater,” came out last month. In an interview with the site ultimateclassicrock.com, he described the performance captured in the recording as “magical.” Crosby, who was born in Los Angeles, joined the Byrds in 1964, scoring their first hit with Bob Dylan's "Mr. Tambourine Man." Crosby, Stills & Nash — later known as Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young when joined by musician Neil Young — were founded the following year and released a series of hits with "Marrakesh Express," "Just a Song Before I Go," "Woodstock" and others. The band's album, "Looking Forward," was released in 1999. Crosby was inducted to the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame twice — once in 1991 with the Byrds and again six years later with Crosby, Stills & Nash. In last month's interview, he said that he was no longer touring because of tendonitis in both hands. PHOTO BELOW

FEB 15-25, 2023 by Ben Harrison "EL ISLENO 1921"
Ben Harrison’s New Musical Showcases an All-Star Band
It’s December 1921 and business has never been better at The Red Rooster Tea & Coffee shop, Key West’s local speakeasy and sporting house. Love, Lust, Ragtime and Jazz fill the air until a fated night with a mackerel sky.
El Isleño 1921: The Untold Key West Story, which opens at the Fringe Theater next month, is the legend of Manuel Cabeza (El Isleño) reimagined by musician/playwright Ben Harrison. With opening night already sold out, Fringe Theater is looking at a booming two week run of this roaring ragtime musical production, February 15-25th at 600 White Street.
It all began when Ben volunteered to be a Friends of the Cemetery tour guide. His assignment one chilly Sunday in January 2019 was El Isleño’s grave:
R.I.P. Manuel “El Isleño” Cabezas, born New Years Day 1887; died Christmas Day 1921.
Ben, who has lived and performed in Key West since the 70s, has a fondness for storytelling and a keen interest in the history of the island. Through research in the archives of the Monroe County Library and conversations with master local historian, Tom Hambright, Ben discovered the story of that one fateful night on the eve of Christmas Eve in Bahama Village in 1921.
By 2021, exactly one hundred years after the original events took place, the project of creating the musical was well underway.
“I was excited about writing music from this era because it is filled with enthusiasm, movement, and life’s promise. On the other hand, writing songs for a moment this intense was like going from light to dark and back again,” says Ben, “The rough and tumble history of the island in 1921—this was like putting a human puzzle together—riveting. It’s taking the available facts and walking the streets of Key West in the character’s shoes.”
The large all-local cast will share the stage with a live band that incorporates piano, traditional Afro/Cuban drums, guitar, upright bass, trombone, and flugelhorn. Local musicians, Michael Robinson (Musical Director/Piano), Larry Baeder (Guitar) and Paulie Walterson (Percussion), will be joined by accomplished New York City jazz bassist, Santi Debriano, and Grammy award winning trombonist, Xito Lovell. Together, they are the Red Rooster Ragtime Band.
In fact, the local members of the Red Rooster Ragtime Band regularly meet each Monday and have been doing so for months. “We musical compadres believe what we are doing is more than just reliving the past. To get ready for the show, we sing and play the songs of the character’s lives determined to tell their —untold—story to the best of our abilities. I care about these characters. I want to do them justice,” says Ben.
On the topic of his musical compadres, Ben states, “Michael has the patience and ability to work with my strengths and do what I can’t— arrange and expand the music. Paulie’s groove shapes the songs. He knows the musical history and persuasions of Key West percussion, which has a lot to do with the Afro/Cuban rhythms. Larry is a serious musical historian and period player.”
El Isleño: The Untold Key West Story is Ben Harrison’s third fully-produced musical based on Key West history. Its story of mystery, grit, tragedy, and redemption makes this show a must see!
Tickets are $35 and $50 and are available at fringetheater.org or by calling the Fringe Theater Box Office at 305-731-0581. Seating is limited, so audience members are encouraged to get their tickets early.

Blundell, who shares his time between Key West and Ontario returned in November with a small trove of assemblage; sculptural works of found objects, masterly constructed during the summer from gatherings of last season’s explorations throughout the lower keys.
Also on view will be new works in bronze from award winning sculptor Walter Horak.

As a Monroe County public charter school, May Sands Montessori School has been providing tuition-free, high quality Montessori education to residents of the lower keys for almost 25 years. The Montessori method involves multi-grade classrooms and a rich, extensive curriculum implemented with hands-on materials and cross-discipline learning. Because of the child-centered, resource intensive nature of their programming, funding received from the Monroe County School District covers only approximately 80% of the school’s annual budget, necessitating additional fundraising. May Sands Montessori School will continue to thrive and grow through the collective support of its staff, its families, and the community at large.

Raw Elements Mineral Sunscreen Dispenser Installed at the Marker Key West Harbor Resort
Reef Relief is excited to announce the installation of two Raw Elements Mineral Sunscreen Dispensers at the Marker Key West Resort. These are the first two public, 100% ‘reef friendly’ dispensers in Florida. This project is a part of Reef Relief’s safe sunscreen campaign to encourage people to use mineral sunscreen.
The dispensers allow guests to have free access to sun protection that is safe to apply to skin, and keeps the environment safe from unnecessary chemicals. Chemicals such as oxybenzone and octinoxate have proven to cause genetic damage to coral and marine animals, increase the severity of coral bleaching and cause hormone disruption in humans.
The Marker Key West Harbor Resort is located in Old Town Key West and has two pools on the property, both with a touch-free, mineral sunscreen dispenser. The dispensers come from Raw Elements, an FDA-approved, non-GMO verified and cruelty-free certified brand. They create SPF products with certified organic ingredients and prioritize protecting our skin and our reefs.
For more information about Reef Relief’s safe sunscreen campaign, visit reefrelief.org or email firstname.lastname@example.org.

In response to community requests, and to ensure pedestrian safety on the busy Eaton Street, the City of Key West has improved center line markings and signage in the area of Elizabeth, Margaret, and William streets.
Eaton Street is a county road, so our engineering and community services departments met with the county to ensure there were no objections.
Given the green light, the improvements were made.
“We are happy to do all we can to improve the safety of our residents and visitors,” said City Manager Patti McLaughlin. “This part of Old Town is quite congested, and we need to remind people to yield to pedestrians.”
The City of Key West will be hosting a parade reenacting an historical march from the 1890s, kicking off Fort Zachary Taylor Historic State Park's Annual Civil War Heritage Days event.
The parade begins at 4 p.m. on Friday, February 3rd. It starts with a memorial service at the historic Clinton Square at the foot of Whitehead Street.
From there, the park anticipates over 100 reenactors to march a route that will take them past the Mel Fisher Museum, down a block of Front to Duval, then up to Southard Street where they will continue until reaching Fort Zachary Taylor.
This will be the 32nd celebration of Civil War Heritage Week in which visitors to the state park will be greeted by volunteers reenacting the Union soldiers who occupied the fort during the Civil War.
Mayor Teri Johnston and the Key West City Commission have proclaimed January Key to Be the Change Mentoring Month. But for the many mentors in the community, every month is mentoring month.
First established in 2014, Keys to Be the Change provides programs, education, awareness and opportunities that empower children, youth and adults to improve health, wellness and skills for success in school and in life. Mentors play a vital role by providing crucial emotional and social support to our children and youth as they grow and develop into our next generation of future citizens and leaders.
The program collaborates with the City of Key West, the Key West Police Department, JIATFS (Joint Interagency Task Force South which includes personnel from the US Coast Guard, Army, Airforce and Marines) as well as numerous community members
"The organization recognizes that mentoring results in less truancy," reads the proclamation, "higher rates of graduation, fosters better attitudes regarding law enforcement and encourages bonding with school as well as community."
"Our kids are so lucky," said Keys to Be the Change Executive Director Heidi Golightly, "that we have these people in our back yard. They have jumped in to help our high risk youth."
She noted the youth leaders of the organization, noting that they were a testament to the success of Key to Be the Change.

HISTORIC KEY WEST CEMETERY STROLL, FEBRAURY 12, 2023
The second Cemetery Stroll to be offered at the Historic Key West Cemetery this season will take place on Sunday February 12th, 2023. During the stroll, small groups of visitors will be escorted to gravesites where interpreters will tell the stories of the deceased in brief monologues. The groups are scheduled for departures at 9:30, 9:50, and 10:10 am. Reservations are necessary, and can be made by calling or texting (305) 304-1453 or by emailing at email@example.com.
Among the gravesites we plan to visit are those of Carrie Pierce, William Kerr, Charles Dupont, John Bartlum, the Dade Lodge Plot, and the monument Los Martires De Cuba.
The tour will take approximately 90 minutes. Participants should wear comfortable shoes and plan to walk over a mile on uneven ground. Bottled water will be provided.
This is an excellent opportunity to learn first-hand about some of the fascinating people who have given Key West its colorful and significant character. Space is limited for the tours and pre-registration is required. A donation of $20 (cash or check) per person to the Historic Florida Keys Foundation is recommended, with all proceeds devoted to cemetery restoration. Participants may enter the cemetery by either the Windsor Street or Frances Street gate and go to the registration table on Palm Avenue.
The last stroll of the season will feature other gravesites and take place on March 5th.
The cemetery strolls are sponsored by the City of Key West and the Historic Florida Keys Foundation.
City Manager Patti McLauchlin named Lead Maintenance Worker Christopher Coleman Employee of the Quarter.
"Christopher is the epitome of a hard, hard worker," McLauchlin said. "Anything he's asked to do, he does it well and he does it fast."
Coleman joined Community Services in May of 2019 and worked his way up to his current position.
McLauchlin noted that she really got to know him when the pandemic hit. Coleman's role was to keep the surfaces and microphones sterile during City meetings. She noted that, no matter how long the meetings lasted, Coleman maintained a smiling, positive attitude.
"Christopher is a great example to other employees of the City," she said.
