The publisher of our local paper, the Key
West Citizen, was a big thinker, very creative. Bill Barry wanted
the Citizen to do something special for the millennium so he
approached Jeff, the biggest name in the newspaper business living
in town with the idea of doing a cover for the paper for the last
day of the 20th Century and the new millennium.
Jeff loved the Citizen, particularly for the
Crime Report—a subject of one of his paintings.
