Monroe County will be looking south this year, where Cuba poses both challenges and opportunities. The opportunity: The federal government announced it will allow more U.S. citizens to visit Cuba and will allow flights from additional airports. Key West International Airport, which recently underwent a $30-million upgrade, could be designated to host some of those flights. The potential problems: Cuba hopes to begin drilling for oil this summer about 50 miles south of the Keys. The well is said to be in waters more than 5,600-feet deep — some 500 feet deeper than waters where the BP Deepwater Horizon well operated.
