I’ve written a column-turned-blog for the Rockford (IL) Register Star and rrstar.com for 20 years, and for 15 years before that. When I left the legacy newspaper business in May 2011, I kept up my rrstar writing.

Writing is a disciplined task. Take a break and it’s almost impossible to get back to daily writing. Even when one has nothing to say, it’s important to put those fingers on the keyboard and make them do something.

When Key West Watch opens officially in 2012, I’ll weave more Key West content into the site. For now, I’m using KeyWestWatch.com as a way to keep up that discipline of writing.

Key West Covid | Why do two years feel like a lifetime?

In Key West Covid escalated the trends that were already shaping and defining our island. Over the next eight years, Key West will complete perhaps the most transformative of its historic changes: the shift from local working town where a few folks always visited to a full-on tourist destination with pockets of locals who can hang on.
