This Week on the Island 03/23/2008

'This week on the Island' is written by Doug Bennett and is an update to friends about happenings in Key West last week. Everything is true except for those parts that are lies.----------------------------------------------------------------------------
The picture this week is miniature golf in Bayview Park on Saturday. The holes were designed by local artist.

The Weather: Wonderful. The low 80's in the day and the low 70's at night. Lots of sunshine.

The book this week was 'Cadillac Beach' by Tim Dorsey. Serge, the serial killer, is in Miami looking for his grandfathers killer and some diamonds.


SPRING BREAK Week III. The college kids are still here and still having a great time.
Monday was St. Pat's Day and Finnegan's Wake blocked off the street for a party. The college kids came and had a great time. Afterwards they all went back to Irish Kevin's. Caroline Street was busy all day.

Thursday was the equinox and the beginning of spring.

By now you have all heard about the woman that was killed by a Spotted Eagle Stingray off the coast of Marathon. The stingray will jump out of the water when chasing food or being chased. In this case it hit the woman standing in the front of a boat.

The 'Save our Pines' group has succeeded in getting the State of Florida to stop the cutting of the pines at Fort Zack. This is a good thing.

While using Google to look for 'Key West the TV Series' (1993) I found I had forgotten that The Green Parrot had shown the episodes on Tuesday nights. It was a stupid show, but I enjoyed watching the background and trying to decide which street the characters were on and what was in the background.
