Key West Chalk Fest (Video)

KEY WEST, Fla. — A kaleidoscope of color and creativity has transformed a portion of the harbor front promenade at Key West’s Truman Annex waterfront during Key West Chalk Fest that ended Sunday. During the past few days, about three-dozen artists have showcased their talents in the tradition of 16th century Italian artists known as “madonnari” who, with chalk, recreated primarily biblical paintings on city streets. 21st century chalk artists, however, do not limit themselves to biblical subjects. Today’s chalk […]

Chilly, Cloudy, Rainy South Florida

By Donna Thomas, EyesOnNews.com Meteorologist,Nov 19, 2014 – South Florida won’t feel like South Florida on Wednesday, a day with a rare combination of wet weather and chilly temperatures. After a rainy early morning, look for lots of clouds, maybe a bit of sun later in the day, a cold breeze, and highs mostly in the upper 60s. But a warm up will begin on Thursday, after a start in the upper 50s to low 60s. We’ll see more sun on […]

Winter Garden: Old Florida town thrives around great bike trail

By Bonnie Gross, FloridaRambler.com, Special to EyesOnNews.com, Nov 17, 2014 – Twenty-five years ago, Winter Garden, a city 15 miles west of Orlando, had a faded, decaying downtown. Businesses had moved out; people and vitality had followed. But then, area leaders made two things happen: The West Orange Trail, a 22-mile bicycle trail running right down the middle of the main street, opened in 1999. A $4.5 million project to beautify and preserve the historic downtown was completed a few years […]

West Orange Trail: A top Florida bike trail crosses historic Central Florida

By Bonnie Gross, FloridaRambler.com, Special to EyesOnNews.com, Nov 16, 2014 – Bike trails like this should be everywhere in Florida. Until they are, however, the West Orange Trail stands out as a particularly appealing bike trail. We drove three hours from Fort Lauderdale to make a weekend out of trying out the West Orange Trail and exploring historic Winter Garden . Our conclusion?  Worth the drive. The West Orange Trail, completed in 1999, is a 22-mile-long paved rail-trail about 15 miles […]

“Everyday Rapture” Captivates Musically, Story Less Appealing

By Michelle F. Solomon, FloridaTheaterOnStage.com, Special to EyesOnNews.com, Nov 13, 2014 – Boca Raton Theatre Guild’s Everyday Rapture is bliss and it’s thereason to get yourself to the Willow Theatre. Jodie Langel, Ann Marie Olson and Leah Sessa possess some of the best voices you’ll hear in South Florida musical theater circles and they bring top-drawer musicality, interpretation and renderings to the delivery of the 18 numbers in this one-woman (albeit four-person), cabaret-inspired show that ran off-Broadway in 2009 and opened […]

By Heather Dugan, EyesOnNews.com, relationship guru, Nov 13, 2014 – “Last call…!” For many adult singles, November is the cut-off. While most hope to meet someone special in time for mistletoe moments, integrating early dating with family gatherings is an added stress most singles would rather forgo. We discussed the pursuit of relationship and the upcoming holidays at a recent Cabernet Coaches’ happy hour. “It’s just awkward. You have to meet the whole family!” “I’d rather wait until January at this […]

Legendary Fisheating Creek : Kayak trail lives up to hype, but timing is everything

By Bonnie Gross, FloridaRambler.com, Special to EyesOnNews.com, Nov 12, 2014 – For decades, I have wanted to kayak Fisheating Creek , which is just west of Lake Okeechobee. The problem: For 10 years, the stream was closed to kayaks and canoes because it was in private hands. During that time (1989-1998) Fisheating Creek achieved legendary status. (Isn’t that how prohibition works? Forbid it and we want it even more?) But since the state purchased the creek lands in 1998, the biggest […]

Family, Science, Feminism Evolve In “The How And The Why”

By John Thomason, FloridaTheaterOnStage.com, Special to EyesOnNews.com, Nov 12, 2014 – Why do women menstruate? It’s a question most of us probably don’t ponder very often, because it’s as much a given as death and taxes (though if any Republican males with presidential aspirations have a thought on the subject, I’d love to hear it). But it’s the most explicit why in The How and the Why, playwright Sarah Treem’s dense meditation on feminism, genetics and biology, currently receiving its southeastern […]
