Corner office


When I was downtown the other day, I noticed this bench near the Florida Capitol. It is next to the outdoor seating area of a restaurant that is frequented by lawmakers and lobbyists. The inscription reads: "Lynda Keever's 'Corner Office'. 18 years as Publisher of Florida Trend. Dedicated April 2, 2009". I thought it was a nice tribute. Florida Trend is a monthly magazine covering Florida business, industry, education and leisure. Lynda Keever was inducted into the Florida Women's Hall of Fame in 2001 and retired as publisher of the magazine in 2009.

we have a memorial park here, it is part of the garden club and a play park for children with walking trails. for a price a person can put a bench memorial like this in the park. there are many trees with plaques, benches like this and other things in the park. I love the idea. I like the chairs and table there in the shade with the bench

That is a very nice tribute. I bet she was a hard working lady.

A fun and unique and warm tribute to a person who obviously had a lot of friends and did a good job with her magazine.

You have peeked my curiosity about Lynda Keever Lois. I am going searching to find out more about her after this. That's a great image and a love tribute to her.

I wonder if she frequented another bench there or the café next to it.

I can just imagine that lady sitting on the bench interviewing people or working on her laptop -- or just thinking about what to write next! Great tribute.

What a wonderful tribute.

That's a very nice honor (though I hope it doesn't cement something of an "outsider" status, bordering as it does on the restaurant seating).

I guess that the bench would be a good place to settle some thorny legal problems before appearing at the bench to argue one's case.
