“You can complain all you want about the expansion of the departure and arrivals area at the Key West airport. There’s money available and money to be made for the powers-that-be.”

“Whatever Louisiana did to infuriate the hurricane gods, let’s not do it here!”

“Get your flu shot, avoid COVID-19. If you get the flu, you may end up at Urgent Care sitting next to the COVID-19 patient. Or getting flu makes you sick, weakens your immune system and makes you more susceptible to COVID-19. Get your flu shot.”

“Faced with flooded roads, the county should be purchasing the lowest-elevation lot in the neighborhood. If not yet developed, this lot should be required to maintain drainage.”

“Anyone who says we don’t need workforce housing anymore should check rental prices. One-bedroom units are still going for $1,800-2,000 a month, which is in no way workforce-friendly. Every restaurant is short-staffed and it’s because almost everyone is priced out.”

“Sure do miss the old bar at the airport.”

“Whenever you have to remind people that you’re in a pandemic, you’re not in a pandemic.”
