We're big again this issue 36 pages and 15,000 copies. We made a couple of mistakes in ou r last article about the Papy/Ramos campaigns . The person in th-e photo with "Charlie" Ramos was not Judge Aquilino Lopez, but was Charlie's grandfather Aquilino Lopez, Sr. Also, Gerald Saund. ers, ex-Mayor of Monroe County, pointed out that he, rather than Clarence Higgs, was the Mayor of Monroe County at that time. The Wrecker's Auction to benefit the SouthernmostHumane Society will be held Thursday and Friday . evenings, February 17 and 18, for the benefit of the Animal Shelter. Come at 7:00 for viewing; auction starts at 8:00. The place is the old N.C.S.S. Hall at the corner' of Duvaland Virginia. It's always good fun. . . The police stopped the performance at sunset of the very popular jugglers, the Loco-Motion Circus, Friday, January 28. Apparently a license is necessary to perform-. the group will get one on Monday, they say. Let's hope that that's all there is to it and this very welcome and popular group will be able to. return and perform regularly at Mal'lory at sunset without any future hassles. Here is the long over-due letter from the State on Rest Beach. Commander William H. Westray, V.S .ff . (Ret.) 1401 Sunset Drive Key West, Florida 33040 Dear Commander Westray; Please accept our sincere apologies for not responding sooner to your letter of September 22, 1976. In that letter and in your December 24, 197 6 letter, you requested that the Division of State Planning appeal Key Wes t building permit numbers B-6147, B-6158 , B-6199, B-6200, B-6341, and B-6342. These building permits allow Mr. Carl Rongo to construct residential units on A-tlanti'c Avenue. The first four of these permits and the initial plat for the project were approved prior to the effective date of the critical area regulations on March 30, 1976; therefore, the Division has no authority to review or t appeal any of those development orders. Building permit numbers B-6341 and B-6342 were issued after the effective date and reviewed by the Division. An intensive review of these two permits in the context of the critical area regulations of Chapter 22F-12, F.A.C., did not reveal, any substantial violations of these rules. Therefore, the Division did not file an appeal as provided for in Chapter 380.07, F.S. • • We are continuing to monitor all development orders issued in the •City of Key West and Monroe County. We intend to take an appropriate action against any order that we feel is not in substantial compliance with the rules and regulations of the critical area designation . Although we have most likely not satisfied your concerns on, this matter,' we thank you for your information and continued interest in the critical area program. If you have additional questions, please feel free to contact myself or Mr. Ted Forsgren at (904) 4884925. Sincerely ,. R.G. Whittle, Jr. State Planning Director We disagree strongly with this analysis and will continue to press oui' case wherever we feel we are going to get help -Until next month, "GONE BUT NOT FORGOTTEN" is the title of this month's cover.
