[“Key Deer overpasses speed limit”] The poster said they didn’t raise the speed limit there as promised because when hurricane Irma toppled the fencing deer were killed. The poster also wrote that more were killed when the temporary repairs to the fences leaked deer onto US1.

The poster didn’t address the unanswered question of promises broken by the government about raising the night speed limit to 45 mph if no deer were killed within a certain period of time. That was years ago and no deer were killed.

The poster is only referring to hurricane damage for his opinion on the night time speed limit. Of course deer were killed when the fence got wiped out. That’s what the fences were for, to protect the deer from cars. The overpasses and fencing worked. During its existence no deer were killed, so when the fencing is properly restored raise the night time speed limit in that stretch to 45 mph.

[Grid Tie-in Made No Name Key Greener] As a Utility Board Candidate and a resident of No Name Key, I am often asked about commercial power and No Name Key.  The reality of NNK before commercial electrical connection was waste:  Approximately half the homes on NNK were and are part-timers, yet their solar-systems produce power every day the sun shines.  Without a grid-tied connection excess solar power produced went to waste. Pollution from generators from 39 of the 43 homes there relied upon generators to supplement their solar systems.  Generators are noisy and polluting; producing 300% more CO2 emissions that Fl Grid electric.  No matter how you look at it, neither waste nor pollution are “green”.

Bringing commercial power to No Name Key allowed for solar-grid-tie opportunities, and it silenced the noisy, polluting generators that 39 of the 43 homeowners used on a regular basis.  These 2 changes created a greener future for NNK. Today, 80% of the NNK residents are connected to the grid because they chose to be.

The process of extending electricity to NNK afforded me the opportunity to work with our biologists, FWC, USFWS, our County (most all departments), our BOCC, and the Public Service Commission.  The knowledge and experience gained, and the legal insight of utility regulation and autonomous legislative authority, is something I uniquely bring as a candidate for the Keys Energy Board.  As is my first-hand knowledge and personal experience with home-solar.   ~Beth

[“Favorite bacon quiz”] I vote #4, well done. There is no flavor in burnt bacon. Yum, yum, yum, yum, yum!

Sex robot Harmony has a built in spy chip that sues you after you spank her!
[Fair Share Principle] I’m in my 60s. You’ve probably never lived in America when the wealthy paid more taxes. I have. We accomplished great things. We eliminated polio, built new schools, bridges and highways, cut the poverty rate, led the world in technology and even went to the moon six times!



I am divorcing Facebook.  Too much politics, griping and whining, nastyness and bullshit.  What started as a nice social media site to share things and ideas with friends, has devolved into an angry, nearly hate-filled diatribe of political BS.  Yes, there are still nice posts, recipes, and other things of general interest but I’m tired of all the other crap that seems to be about 80% of the posts.  So I’ll see you at the watering hole if you want a few brewskies and conversation.

[“Bacon quiz”] I’m going with to go with number 5. I want all the fat rendered out and just the sweet crunch left. I hat when I go to a restaurant and the bacon has a little fat showing.

[“Night speed limit on deer overpass”] Someone is opposed to raising the night speed limit to 45 mph on that part of US1. One of the reasons for his protest is that raising the night limit would only save you another 37 seconds. Saving 37 seconds is not why people want to go faster. Going slow on an open road is boring–to say the least. Especially when there’s no good reason to go slow. 45 mph isn’t very fast.
[“CT prints lies”] Scopes says that’s not true. I agree 100%. 10-4 poster on all you say.  Whoever posted the initial “CT lies” post has lost their base of real life and reason for being down here. Deer Ed is right-on and I really hope he/she stays the course of impartial honest rendering of what the Keys folks are saying.  That is the credo of the CT: What Keys folks are saying.

You go, Deer Ed, we readers (perhaps the ‘CoCo nuts’?) really appreciate you and what you do to produce the CT — Really. Keep it up. Please.

Affordable housing scams are happening all over the country. Politicians cry for affordable housing and developers take advantage of it and make a fortune. Most time the politicians and the developers are linked. Check out what happened in Santa Barbara: “No city, including Santa Barbara can build itself into affordable housing and into prosperity.  The more housing that is built, the more people will come here and the more demand for housing, city services, welfare and more congestion too. (sound familiar?) Link

The story about the Rock on Cudjoe is one of them. Thank you. Another day to explore and learn something new. It’s nice to see our resident know-it-all still knows-it-all. And a big shot out to Deer Ed who’s made millions producing this page through thick and thin. He’s added true value to our island.

[“Affordable housing”] The Empty Homes Tax will make more apartments available for rent, but it will also encourage rich people to live here. Vancouver, BC had a similar housing crisis. Any non-primary-residence home that is not rented/occupied for 6 months out of the year is taxed 1% of the value of the home. Link

And, once the residents wrote the checks, Law-Rose would pay the actual sales tax amount, which was much less than the check amount, and deposit the balance in her boss’s bank account. Link
[Angry People] There sure does seem to be an enormous amount of angry, pissed off people screaming about the Keys. It seems in the last few years it has turned into an epidemic. I don’t think the word “Paradise” really fits the Keys anymore. Watch, I guarantee someone will scream about me posting my opinion and, without really noticing, will prove my point. “Live and let live” has died in the Keys. The Hurricane Dave’s, Barefoot Bobs and O.Z.s are missed now more then ever.

[“$10,000 sex robot”] What a deal. I’m going to get five of them. Here is why. My first wife cost me two houses totaling 200 k, 20 years ago. Guess they are worth at least 5 times that now.  I’m still paying alimony for 20 years, its cheap at only 300 a month, but that totals almost 80k!

[“Bacon quiz”] Number 5. I like it crispy, not that old rubbery stuff some restaurants serve. Haw hard it is to cook bacon. Just like eggs, they’re pretty easy to learn to cook. That’s why is frustrating to see breakfast cooks who don’t know how to cook bacon or an egg.

[Election] It’s hard for me to imagine that any legitimate environmental group would endorse Ramsay-Vickery’s run for public office when she was almost single-handedly responsible for the destruction of the solar/green community on No Name Key with her campaign for running utility power to the island.

I’m with Judge Brett. What can I say, I like beer!
