ENCORE : IMPORTANT FEATURE ABOUT BACK TO SCHOOL AND THEN TO FOLLOW FLORIDA MARLIN NIGHT AT THE STADIUM AUGUST 27
More than 3,000 students will be returning to schools in the Key West area on Thursday, August 10th. Amid the commotion of the season, it is important to always remember our number one back-to-school priority: keeping kids safe.
Whether you have kids in school or not, be ready to adjust your schedule to accommodate the traffic slowdowns that occur when school is in session. Patience is the most important thing that every motorist can bring to the table. It’s worth allowing a little more time to get around to be sure that all Key West kids are safe on their way to and from school.
Here are some child safety tips to keep in mind:::
If your child is walking to or from school, walk the route with them beforehand. Choose the most direct way, and be sure the route has sufficient sidewalks, lighting and crossing guards. If a crossing guard is absent, be sure your child knows when it is safe to cross the street.
Make sure your child walks to and from school with other trusted schoolmates and follows the tried and true axiom, "Never talk to strangers."
Teach your kids to obey all traffic signals when walking or biking to school.
When biking, be sure your child has a helmet.
When waiting for the school bus always stand on the sidewalk, away from the roadway. Always remain seated while on the bus.
Be sure your child knows a phone number where you can be reached in case of an emergency.
Being hit by a car poses the greatest threat to any child walking or riding a bicycle to school. As drivers, it is our responsibility to avoid dangerous distractions behind the wheel. Pay particular attention near crosswalks and areas around schools where children could potentially run into the roadway. Don’t text or talk on the phone, it’s not worth the risk of a potential tragedy.
This is a good time to take a look at your own driving habits and review the rules of the road. Florida law prohibits passing a school bus in either direction when it is stopped with its red lights flashing. Drivers must also remember to slow down to the posted speed limit in school zones. The Key West Police Department does not tolerate negligent actions that could harm our community's children. Anyone caught passing a stopped school bus or speeding in a school zone can expect to be stopped and cited accordingly.
It is up to each one of us to ensure that our school children are safe. Please do your part and be aware as you drive.
In the photo below: The Key West Parking Department held a special training session for the 2023/2024 school year crossing guards. They are trained and ready to protect your children!
Get your tickets now!
The Miami Marlins are supporting the Key West Police Athletic League by proclaiming the August 27th as Key West Night. During the July meeting, Mayor Teri Johnston and the City Commission proclaimed August 27th as Miami Marlins Day.
The August 27th game pits the Marlins against the Washington Nationals, and it’s the third year in a row that the Marlins have supported PAL with a special Key West Night. Key West residents will receive a special ticket price, and $5 of each ticket will be donated to PAL.
At that game, City Manager Al Childress will throw out the first pitch. At half time, a group of Key West kids will join Marlins’ mascot Billy on the field during the seventh inning stretch to sing “Take me Out to the Ballgame.”
Vice Mayor Sam Kaufman has worked with Florida Keys Media’s Rick Lopez each year to make this happen, noting that Key West has always been a baseball town.
PAL’s programs are designed to get children involved in sports and in educational programs. It provides a safe place where kids can go after school and on weekends. It encourages teamwork and strong self-esteem. PAL supports computer classes after school and provides entertaining and educational camps during the summer and on holidays.
In extreme heat your body works extra hard to maintain a normal temperature, which can lead to death. In fact, extreme heat is responsible for the highest number of annual deaths among all weather-related hazards. For more information, visit www.ready.gov/heat.
Remember: Extreme heat can occur quickly and without warning. Older adults, children and sick or overweight individuals are at greater risk from extreme heat. Humidity increases the feeling of heat as measured by a heat index. Pay attention to the warning issued by NOAA.
When under an extreme heat warning, find air conditioning, avoid strenuous activities, drink plenty of fluids, and wear light clothing.
Check on family members and neighbors, and never leave people or pets in a closed car.
It’s also important to know the signs of heat-related illness and how to respond. Muscle pains or spasms in the stomach, arms or legs are a sign of heat cramps. Get to a cooler location and remove excess clothing. Sip cool sports drinks with salt and sugar. If the cramps last more than an hour, get medical help.
Heavy sweating, paleness, muscle cramps, tiredness, weakness, dizziness, headache, fainting, nausea, vomiting are clear signs of heat exhaustion. Go to an air-conditioned place and lie down. Loosen or remove clothing and take a cool bath. Hydrate with cool sports drinks containing salt and sugar. Get medical help if symptoms get worse or last more than an hour.
Heat stroke is the most dangerous condition. Symptoms include high body temperature exceeding 103 degrees; red, hot, and dry skin with no sweat; rapid, strong pulse; and dizziness, confusion, or unconsciousness. With these symptoms, call 911 immediately and cool down the person’s body any way available until help arrives.
Heat distress can sneak up suddenly with dire results. Please take precautions to ensure your safety.
Mayor Teri Johnston last week represented Key West in Tampa on a panel at the first conference focused on the Florida LGBTQ tourism industry: the Florida Out Coast Convention (FLOCC).
She was joined on the panel by Visit Lauderdale CEO Stacy Ritter and Visit Tampa Bay CEO Santiago Corrada, along with representatives from the American Hospitality & Lodging Association Foundation, the International Gay & Lesbian Travel Association, and the LGBT Meeting Professionals Association.
FLOCC is primarily educational and offers several opportunities for networking within Florida's tourism and LGBTQ leadership community. FLOCC is designed to help communities and businesses better understand the specific needs and challenges around LGBTQ tourism topics.
Mayor Teri Johnston and the Key West City Commission have proclaimed July as Recreation and Parks Month.
The declaration dovetails with recognition countrywide by the National Recreation and Park Association as well as the Florida Recreation and Park Association.
“Parks and recreation programs enhance our quality of life by contributing to healthy lifestyles, building community, creating economic development, and encouraging environmental stewardship,” rethe proclamation. In addition, they “boost the economy, enhance property values, attract new business, increase tourism, and reduce crime.”
Recreation helps build “family unity, strengthens neighborhood involvement, offers opportunity for social interaction, enhances education, develops creativity, and promotes cultural diversity.”
The honor was accepted by Tiffany Pellicier, Chairperson of the Parks and Recreation Advisory Board, and Roger McVeigh, Vice Chair.
HARC and a hurricane - and a lot of hard work - are restoring one of Key West's historic wooden houses to more closely resemble the original.
The house, located on Fleming Street, was moved this week from the very back of the lot up toward the sidewalk, where it originally stood.
The Queen Anne frame home was constructed around 1935 and was relocated to the rear of the lot around 1962. For years, a large tree stood in front and obstructed the view of the house from the road.
In 2017, Hurricane Irma felled the tree.
This year, the Key West Planning Board and then the Historic Architectural Review Commission approved the restoration of the home's location as well as raising it to a higher elevation for flood protection. The renovations included removing some late-date alterations to the rear of the home. The approved plans also include the construction of two units behind the house.
"Relocation of houses was a common practice in Key West," says City of Key West Historic Planner Enid Torregrosa-Silva. "In the last years we are seeing more historic wood houses being elevated to make them more resilient. Today's event brings the historic house back to her original location. The house will be kept on a higher elevation for up to five weeks so the new footers can be built. Once they are built, the house will then be lowered and secured on her new footings."
IN PREPAIRING THIS ISSUE. I came across an Article that Alyson wrote a few months ago ; that I never got into the magazine. So here it is :
Mayor Teri Johnston and the City Commission this week celebrated five Local American Youth Soccer Association teams for their successful season by proclaiming April 4th as Key West AYSO Championship Soccer Day.

The Key West U12 Boys team was the runner-up after winning all but 1 game. The Key West U12 Girls captured the championship, and the U10 Boys Archer team was the runner-up after facing Key West in the final match.
