Local Weekend Events

Just want to say thanks to Howard Livingston, with the Mile Marker 24 Band, and to the Key West Rotary Club for putting on such a fabulously good time. The March event kicks off the Conch Heritage Celebration and is hugely growing in popularity. Conchfest is free to enter and all profits derived from beer and food sales go towards scholarship programs for locals that need help after graduating from Key West High School. The live music is the highlight, but you get to see or join into the various family-friendly contests and games. The conch chowder cook-off is my personal favorite, as is the coed softball tournament. There are tons of demonstrations and children's activities, plus you can pucker up and blow the conch. Thanks to all that put in time to pull off such a fabulous Bayview Park Event, especially the kids from Key West High School.

Ready for some Skinny Dipping

Looking for Suggestions with my Swimming Pool. QUESTION: I live in Key Colony Beach and my condo swimming pool pump pressure gauge is running very low. What do you think the problem may be. I have just back washed the pool. Regards Marie. ANSWER: How old is your filter. Is the pool open and uncovered. You may need a new filter because low pressure seems to be a filter problem. If the filter was a bit heavy when you cleaned it OR if it is more than a year old and your pool is open to leaves and such, you will need to replace it. Is the water movement good. If it is, it could be a bad gauge. Call them at Blythe Pools (305-849-7705) if you need someone to come out, local and very professional. Services Marathon, Coco Plum, Big Pine Key, Duck Key, Long Key, and Key Colony Beach. Let me know if this helps.

Heading to the Coolest Location

Wow, a key colony beach vacation. That's fantastic. We had the Christmas luncheon yesterday and everyone talked about what they are doing for Christmas. My coworkers are so jealous. Lunch tomorrow at Fish Tales next to Vaca Cut.
