Flamingo/Potrero News

October 15, 2010

Potrero residents Susan and Bob Smith were interviewed live on Oct. 4 by CNN correspondents Ali Velshi and Kiran Chetry while in London. The subject of the interview was how U.S. citizens traveling in Europe were dealing with the latest terrorist warning, and neither Susan nor Bob was going to let the threat interfere with their visit!

Marie Yates of Marie’s Restaurant in Flamingo got a great turnout in response to her invitation to “forget about the rain and come enjoy The Leatherbacks” on  Oct. 8. Dinner and drink specials and great music were the order of the evening.
