    Unlock the beauty of Florida's Upper Keys
    Despite its enduring quirks, Key West is light-years removed from the escapist island that awaited a failed country songwriter who pulled into town a penniless nobody in the 1970s. That was Jimmy Buffett, of course, whose Key West-inspired 1977 hit...

    Margaritaville resort burdened by more delays, money troubles

    The One Man the Superdome Can't Operate Without
    If it were a city, on Sunday the Superdome would be the 7th biggest in the state.  It needs food, security and everything else a city requires to run efficiently.  If you consider who makes that all happen, you could say Farrow Bouton is the mayor. ...
  • Quick someone tell Martz to Hanie-proof the Bears

    I love the job Mike Tice has done --- has usually done --- but the offensive line coach's blocking schemes and players are absolutely useless against 3-4 schemes. Or if it's not the schemes, then it's the way they're taught because the linemen don't...

    Personality guide to Florida's beaches for both coasts
    Florida's beaches are playgrounds for tourists and residents alike, with each stretch of sand offering a unique character. It all depends on what you're looking for: peace, a party? There is a different case to be made for most of the state's natural...

    On the road with Florida sounds
    Watching Jimmy Buffett in concert this past weekend, I couldn't help imagining again how deliriously happy the Key West tourism people must be about his long, successful career. If the city fathers had put together a singer in a laboratory, they couldn't...

    It's almost NYE: Time to dump your seasonal boyfriend?
    I've been dating a guy for about a month now. We're not that compatible, and to be honest, I was mostly spending time with him to avoid the inevitable holiday loneliness. This sounds worse than it is. Who knows, maybe he's doing the same thing? So, my...

    Smithfield Arts Summer Concerts series features Bob Zentz, Angela Easterling
    Smithfield Arts outdoor concert series is about to enter its final and, to my mind, most interesting phase. On Friday, July 22, Norfolk folk musician Bob Zentz will dig into his vast trove of sea chanteys and nautical folk tunes. He's adept on concertina,...

    Home accessories are crawling with crabs
    For millions of years, crabs have been scuttling about the bottom of the world's oceans and bays, but few regions have embraced the mean-spirited, omnivorous crustacean with as much vigor as we have here in Maryland. When I moved here from the Midwest...

    The old salts of the shrimp fleet have been undercut by Asian shellfish farmers. Flower children who hitchhiked here in the '70s have taken their beads and tambourines and boogied back north. But the Conch Republic is losing more than just its slackers,...
