I wrote here about an astonishing presentation prepared by a Florida Keys Aqueduct Authority (FKAA) staffer.  Why so astonishing?  For one thing, it’s a tacit admission that the Cudjoe Regional project is a failure.  There’s no more pretending that it’s the … Continue reading

Outstanding Editorial About Single-member Districts

Not sure how I missed this outstanding editorial at KeysNews.com (the Citizen) about single-member districts.  Glad I finally found it though. In her letter to the editor, Comm. Heather Carruthers’s seemed to suggest that excluding working folks from the Board … Continue reading

Letter to the Editor Supports Plaintiffs

Update:  The letter is online at the Blue Paper now, too.  And, yes, of course I commented.  Can’t help myself. Lawyers can be very silly and melodramatic sometimes.  They must learn it in school. A few weeks back the County … Continue reading

FKAA Follies – Public Records

Update:  Yeah, copying the board members really seems to help.  Charley Toppino & Sons has a subcontract with Gianetti worth $2.9 million.  According to the information provided, they are doing no work on the wastewater treatment facility.  The Toppino companies … Continue reading

Red Flags – Making Sense of it All

I first drafted this post months ago when KeysNet.com sniffed out the $20,000 missing from the school district.  I’ve been adding to it bit by bit ever since.  I didn’t want to publish it until the veto period was safely over. … Continue reading

Cudjoe Connection “Crisis”

From KeysNews:  Cudjoe residents question FKAA at meeting.  Snerk.  I won’t lie.  I sort of enjoy watching the FKAA live in the hell they have created for themselves.  They and their partner, Monroe County, fed the money creature, now they get to deal with … Continue reading
