Just as Henry Flagler extended his vision to the southernmost city 100 years ago, the Weekly Newspapers are spreading into Key West with the establishment of our new digs at 604 Truman Avenue.
We have notified the governor who said he would be down on the very next train and advised us to muster all of the island’s photographers, politicians, and socialites for a tickertape parade that will begin at Truman & Simonton, head down Duval to Greene Street and then up Simonton again.
The celebration will continue into the next week, through Spring Break and should peak around Lobster Mini-Season. The hangover could last until Fantasy Fest.
In the meantime, we will still beat the streets, finding all the interesting local news that is fit to print. Our focus will be centered on entertainment, local politics, and community events like this past weekend’s Chef Classic to benefit the MARC House.
Make sure to check out next weekend’s Little Black Book edition just in time for Valentine’s Day.
Our Mission Statement:
The Weekly Newspapers are a locally owned newspaper group focusing on community news. The publishing company prides itself on community service and activism and seeks to provide news and stories that inform, enlighten, inspire and entertain.
