Dust off your favorite holiday decorations, because it’s time for the Longboat Observer’s annual “Light Up the Keys” competition. Over the course of the next couple of weeks, Observer staff members will be on the hunt for the most festively decorated condominiums, single-family homes and businesses on Longboat, Lido, Bird and St. Armands keys. The judging this year will be structured differently than in the past. In the Thursday, Dec. 15 issue of the Longboat Observer, we will reveal the top winners in each category: condominiums with more than 100 units, condominiums with less than 100 units, single-family homes, commercial category and Publisher’s Choice. We’ll also include our “bright spots” list — our runners-up that are also not-to-be missed. Happy holidays!

Mote Marine Laboratory’s Holly West washes a baby sea turtle that was brought in after a coyote attacked its nest July 10. Sea turtles face a variety of predators while they’re nesting, but Mote strives to help them by caring for any wounds, administering antibiotics and releasing them off shore when they’re strong enough.
