The April 2022 KEYS TRAVELER IS OUT ; Along with the other April TDC Material

Earth Day Activities Planned Around the Florida Keys

Every day is a reason to celebrate the beauty of the planet throughout the Florida Keys, full of natural wonders set against scenic backdrops of earth, sea and sky. The waters surrounding the island chain, including the continental United States’ only living coral barrier reef, are protected by the Florida Keys National Marine Sanctuary.

The Keys encompass 10 state parks, two national parks — Dry Tortugas National Park and the Flamingo district of Everglades National Park — and four federally protected havens: National Key Deer, Great White Heron, Key West and Crocodile Lake national wildlife refuges.

Keys visitors and residents can commemorate Earth Day’s significance with outdoor activities experienced only in the Florida Keys before, on or after April 22. 

Now Through May 15 

Reef Relief, a nonprofit membership organization dedicated to improving and protecting the Keys’ coral reef ecosystem, is offering an ultimate virtual road-trip getaway to the Florida Keys with its Key Largo to Key West Challenge. Participants can join to complete a 50-mile, 100-mile or 200-plus mile option with any form of intentional exercise such as running, walking, biking, swimming or paddling. During the challenge, entrants log weekly miles via smartphone, mobile fitness app or on paper to complete the trip. Reef Relief emails participants highlights of what they will encounter along each week’s mileage of their virtual vacation. Log as few or as many miles as preferred, each week. The challenge creates a unique experience by taking participants on a virtual vacation while intentionally exercising. In 2020, the virtual challenge provided an escape from isolation, was voted a top-five Best Virtual Race Experience by BibRave and raised $30,000 for Reef Relief. 

April 14 

Take a Full Moon Kayak Excursion from 6-8 p.m., and watch the sun set and moon rise while paddling along the mangrove shoreline. Proceeds help local wildlife through the Florida Keys Wildlife Society, the official friends group for the Florida Keys National Wildlife Refuges. The kayak excursion takes place in the waters surrounding the National Key Deer Refuge in Big Pine Key and nearby areas. Beginning at the Old Wooden Bridge Marina, 1791 Bogie Road, Big Pine Key, paddlers kayak across the water to No Name Key and north. Reservations include kayak, gear and experienced guide. A $30 donation supports the Florida Keys Wildlife Society. 

April 21 

Join a Fish Identification Class at 11 a.m. the day before Earth Day at the John Pennekamp Visitor Center and Aquarium Auditorium in Key Largo. The class is to be taught by staff with Key Largo’s Reef Environmental Educational Foundation. Participants learn about REEF as an organization, basic fish identification techniques and how to become involved in citizen science projects. The first undersea park in the United States, John Pennekamp Coral Reef State Park is located at mile marker 102.5. No registration is required; entry to the program is included in paid park admission. 

April 22

Celebrate Earth Day with the Turtle Hospital by witnessing a planned sea turtle release back to the ocean off Marathon’s Sombrero Beach. A licensed veterinary hospital dedicated to the treatment of sea turtles, the Turtle Hospital is situated at mile marker 48.5 bayside in Marathon. It was opened in 1986 with the goal of healing injured sea turtles and returning them to the wild. Visitors can take guided educational tours of the facility and outdoor rehabilitation area. Follow the hospital’s social media channels (@theturtlehospital) for an announcement of details of the anticipated Earth Day release. 

Enjoy a family-friendly evening from 5-8 p.m. at Lagerheads Beach Bar, 0 Simonton St. in Key West, during the Second Annual Luau Fundraiser to benefit Reef Relief coral reef conservation efforts. The event is to feature live music, games, a silent auction and raffle drawings, tropical food and drink specials. Email or call 305-294-3100.

April 22-24

During the ninth annual iteration of Key Largo’s Reef Environmental Educational Foundation Lionfish Derby weekend, set for April 22-24, teams of up to four people can dive to capture lionfish and compete for prizes in two divisions — Apex Predators and Reef Defenders. Until 6:15 p.m. Friday, April 22, registration is $100 per team. A Friday captains meeting is mandatory for derby teams, held both virtually and in-person at the REEF campus, mile marker 98.3 in the median of the Florida Keys Overseas Highway. Teams are to fish Saturday from sunrise to sundown in Keyswide waters. Sunday is fish drop-off day, with an awards ceremony. Register online at            

April 23

The marine environment surrounding the continental United States’ southernmost island chain is to take center stage Saturday, April 23, during Mote Marine Laboratory’s 10th Ocean Fest: A Community Celebration. Attendees can enjoy live music, environmental art, family-friendly activities and conservation and environmental exhibits. The free-admission event is set for 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at Key West’s Truman Waterfront Park, located at the end of Southard Street near the Florida Keys Eco-Discovery Center.

Below Adam Scott Rote Writes : "What a day to remember, Mr. Lewis was a huge influence in my style of painting growing up. In one of his movies featuring Dean Martin & Shirley Maclaine Dorothy Malone plays an Artist and Dean’s love interest, stretched out all over the studio in Malone’s studio apartment are Vargas paintings that she is pretending to illustrate. Something about those paintings stuck with me, and I got to collaborate and share that with the man that made my childhood a absolute wondrous memory (thanks channel 43 for playing favorites and as always Love to Karen Grace Cadle for being the Legend Whisperer.)". The May 2nd or (pushed back an additional Week : May 9th.) Issue will have more from Adam Scott Rote.

The Following Below is written by Mandy Miles for THE WEEKLY NEWSPAPERS

No nudity. No Fantasy Zone. Fines for inappropriate body-painting. “Family hours” during which inappropriate costumes are prohibited. More widespread economic benefits to businesses islandwide. Increase the focus on culture, history and natural resources of Key West. Key West’s annual Fantasy Fest is about to change. City leaders decided at a December 2021 Leadership Retreat they want to “transform the event into a positive, clean festival enjoyed by both residents and visitors.”

More recently, at the April 5 city commission meeting, officials authorized City Manager Patti McLauchlin to negotiate a new contract with the Tourist Development Association, which produces Fantasy Fest. (The TDA is the association that produces Fantasy Fest. It is not to be confused with the Monroe County Tourist Development Council, or TDC, a county government agency that uses bed tax dollars collected by hotels and lodging establishments to promote Key West tourism and fund large-scale projects and improvements that will benefit tourism.)The April 5 agenda item initially directed McLauchlin to negotiate a one-year contract with the TDA, but TDA president Steve Robbins, and Key West Chamber of Commerce director Robert Goltz told the commission that events the size and scale of Fantasy Fest require multi-year contracts because producers negotiate multi-year agreements with sponsors. The commission voted unanimously on April 5 to leave the contract length up to McLauchlin.

JAG LOGO2a.jpg

"BUS STOP" Above

B. Lucy Stevens - Solo Exhibition - JAG Gallery - 04/15 - 05/03



B. Lucy Stevens has lived in the south of France on a flower farm and on a muddy river in Indonesia. Most of her childhood was spent in the woods of New Hampshire where, she has said, “there was never enough sun. I always drew and made things, but it never crossed my mind to go to art school. I liked to write, too—even back then I was curious to know people’s stories—so I became a newspaper reporter, and later, a writing teacher so I could help other people tell their stories. I was drawing all along, though, in my reporter’s notebooks and on the backs of student papers and finally the need to do this all the time grabbed me and it won’t let me go.”


A self-taught artist, she says, “I paint what I see, what I remember and what I imagine, and it all blends together, like it is in my mind. I crave solitude but fear isolation. There are times I cannot stop painting.”


B. Lucy Stevens is exhibiting a new body of work at the gallery. Of this series she said, “What I realized as I was making these paintings was that I have very little control over what happens on the canvas. People and creatures suddenly appear. If I had a plan when I started to paint, which I don’t, it wouldn’t matter because they do what they want. The way I see it, I’m just here to help bring them into existence. The big blue-headed lady, for instance, where did she come from? And why did I feel compelled to give her a tutu? I don’t know, but what I do know is the more I paint the more I’m learning to trust these people and creatures. If I look closely, if I’m patient, they will show me who they are and what they want. So if a big blue-headed lady wants a tutu, I’ll gladly give it to her!”


The exhibition runs from April 15th to May 3rd. 


JAG Gallery is located at 1075 Duval, C23 (Duval Square) - There's plenty of available parking. For more information please call 305-407-6202 or email Follow us on instagram at

The Key West Fire Department is wearing blue all month to recognize Nation Autism Awareness Month. The blue shirts bear a large KWFD emblem on the back made up of the colorful puzzle pieces that have come to represent autism awareness.

It's vital for first responders to be well versed in working with autistic individuals in order to provide the highest level of care.

"Probable everyone in this city has a loved one or knows someone whose loved one has this condition," said Fire Chief Alan Averette. "It's important that we, as fire and rescue workers, know the best way to read a situation and provide the best response."


City Manager Patti McLauchlin, during Tuesday's City Commission meeting, honored Police Chief Sean Brandenburg for his 20 years of service to Key West.

Surrounded by colleagues, commissioners, the mayor, and his wife Julie, Chief Brandenburg was presented a 20-year coin and gold watch commemorating his service.

"We thank you, Sean, for all your many years of service," said McLauchlin.

"It's an honor to make this milestone in my career." Said Brandenburg. "I still enjoy going to work every day. The two big reasons for that: The fine men and women of the Key West Police Department, and the community support we get. And by community support I also mean our law enforcement community. Nowhere else do you see city, county, state, federal and the military get along the way we do in Key West."

In presenting the honors, McLauchlin recalled the many contributions and milestones in Chief Brandenburg's career. Hired on April 1st in 2002, "Sean started on the night shift, quickly becoming a K-9 handler. He was paired with his K-9 Wind, who would serve faithfully by his side for the next several years."

In 2005, he was promoted to Sergeant, and, in 2010, Brandenburg and Wind were assigned to the Special Investigations Unit or narcotics unit.

"During his time in narcotics, Sean was the leader of the unit," said McLauchlin, "working closely with our local, state and federal partners, to combat the opioid epidemic that was just beginning to take hold in the US and Florida. In one six-month stint while working with a special task force from the DEA, his unit filed over 250 felony charges against individuals selling drugs in Key West."

Brandenburg was promoted to Lieutenant in 2012. In 2014, he was promoted to Administrative Captain.

While he was Captain, Brandenburg attended the prestigious FBI National Academy, an honor less than one percent of Law Enforcement worldwide are selected to attend.

On December 3, 2018, he was promoted to Police Chief.

"As Chief, he has continued to strive to improve the agency's relationship with the community," McLauchlin noted. "Sean is a member of Rotary, Business Guild, Cooking with Love and Military Affairs Committee, and sits on various boards to include Keys to be the Change, Wesley House, Love Fund, and PAL. Sean is also an enormous supporter of Special Olympics, MARC House, and Autism Society of the Keys, hence the Blue Badge on his chest. Sean has received numerous awards, such as Life Saving, Officer of the Quarter, Unit Award, and the Chief's Commendation, for his work throughout his tenure."

We are constantly monitoring the CDC Guidelines -- especially for smaller, more confined spaces -- and will adjust these protocols accordingly. At present, the guidelines for Monroe County fall under the "Low Risk" category, but it is still recommended that visitors to smaller spaces continue to wear a mask if visiting for an extended period. This is especially true for immunocompromised persons, persons with any symptoms, or those who have been exposed -- however slightly -- to anyone who has COVID 19. We appreciate your help in our endeavors to provide a safe, comfortable, and entertaining evening of theater at your Red Barn.

Editor's Note : There will be NO Key West Concert in April; but they will be in FTL and Miami

South Florida Symphony’s season finale concert commences with Mahler’s fourth movement of his Fifth Symphony — a love note to his future wife — and Copland’s Clarinet Concerto, also referred to Concerto for Clarinet and String Orchestra (with Harp and Piano). Acclaimed soloist, David Shifrin, joins SFSO for this melodious and jazzy 2-movement concerto, which was originally commissioned by renowned jazz clarinetist Benny Goodman. SFSO’s magnificent 2021/22 season culminates with one of Beethoven’s most celebrated works: his monumental Symphony No. 3 in E-flat Major. The “Eroica” Symphony represents a turning point not only in Beethoven’s career — but also in the history of music — setting a new symphonic template for future composers to emulate. This is truly a “Sinfonia Eroica,” or heroic symphony.

Tickets from just $15 are on sale now. Student tickets and group rates are also available. Information at 954.522.8445 or
