+ Light up, Longboat, for this year’s contest
O little town of Longboat Key …
It’s time for The Longboat Observer’s annual “Light Up the Keys” contest. Soon, Longboat Key will be getting a whole lot brighter as homes, businesses and condominiums light up with holiday decorations.
From Dec. 7 through Dec. 11, Observer staffers will hit the road in search of the Key’s most spirited decorations. This year will feature categories of condominiums of more than 100 units and condominiums of fewer than 100 units for first-through-third prizes. Condominiums, along with single-family homes and commercial businesses, can compete for the “Publisher’s Choice” award.
So, get in the spirit and you could win the best gift of all: a picture of your holiday spirit in The Longboat Observer.

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.
Groin project costs come in under $2.5 million
The groins will be built next summer near the North Shore Road beach access to help hold sand in place on the north end that is swept off the Key
