Probably many of those Northerners who were afraid to leave their homes for fear of pipes freezing will be piling down here now. Incidentally, the last two weeks here have produced some of the most beautiful weather I've ever experienced in my life. A Dr. Jude called the other day to express his continuing alarm about the Cattle Quarantine Station. He feels that not only is it a very unnecessary facility for a tourist area, but that there is a'greater chance for mishap than has been reported. He points out that even a scare of disease in our tourist area could be disastrous for our economy. He told me that there would be an open meeting at City Hall with a representative of Senator Chiles, March 25 . Unfortunately, I missed the meeting, but Dexter Springstead was there and he echoed some of the fears of Dr. Jude and added some of his own. Both men feel that the potential for disease is far greater than has been reported in the government study, and they are both completely opposed to the building of the station. Ironically , I recently remarked to "Miss" Jessie Porter Newton that I felt that there would be no stopping this building, but she wisely reminded me that the Cross Florida Canal was stopped when it was well under way. I hope to have more on this soon. Bey , something new in town a chess tournament. It is sponsored by the Kareka Chess , Go, and Backgammon Parlor and it will be held Saturday and Sunday, April 16 and 17. There will be three categories of play and cash prizes for all winners . For pre-registration and further information, contact, them at 6-2855 or go to the Parlor at 1220% Simonton Street. I had a lette r fro m Charles Mendoza who was written up in the article on Papy and Ramos called Beers, Banks, and Burials. He asks that we retract the statements made about him where it was. reported that he, a Papy supporter , "had the nerve to be one of the first ones to show up at Ramos' house for the big victory party on the night of the election, and it took several strongbacks to save him from being hurled over the seawall." The article read further,"'Kill him'.' came the shouting from the crowds. Mendoza fled and soon left town." Mendoza says the only true part of this account is that he showed up at the party and all the rest is a lie. I checked with Louie Signorelli , who was a major worker for Ramos, and he told me that he had invited Mendoza to the party but, unfortunately , he heard several people plotting to get Mendoza and cause him harm. Louie says that he then, went up to Mendoza and advised him to leave , which he did. It would appear that we went a little overboard on reporting that Mendoza fled town after hearing threats shouted at him from the crowd. Mendoza says, also f that his vacation was ,up and that he had to return to Denver, which was why he left town. I hope that this clarifies the incident and I'm sorry for any misunderstandings. Maggie Cherepanik called from Big Coppitt the other day to advise me that there will be a protest made to the County Commission about Big Coppitt and Bay Point residents being singled out for the enforcement of a "ridiculous" fenze height ordinance. Apparently , there is a county rule that all fences mus t be no more than 3 feet high (except for chain link which can be 4 feet) in front yards unless they are set back 10 feet from the street. Maggie believes that this is an absurd ordinance and feels that it should be brought to the attention of the commissioners April 5. She urges that all residents of this area who are affected by this ordinance join her at this meeting. See you next month.

One result of any serious thought about where our population is going must be a county master plan. We have one, but, as Ruttenber points out, it is merely an extension of the past trends in development thos e very trends that have caused the well-documented degradation of the Keys environment during the 1960's and 1970's. This plan establishes land uses and density regulations that could permit a future permanent population of 250,000 to 300,000, and does so without reference to any valid form of planning theory. Furthermore, the planning document prepared by Howard, Needles, Tammen, and Bergendoff manages to hide the fact that its provisions would lead to such a large county population.

1 8 writte n b y Richar d Mars h Th e Nav y Base : Far t Tw o photo s b y Richar d Mars h excep t a s note d The Wav y is in the process of abandoning approximatel y 97 acres of land at the Truman Annex and the Trumbo Annex in Key West, resulting in the loss to the local economy of some 350 civilian jobs and the support of the military personnel . The land is being turned over to the City of Key West for civilian reuse . The mechanics of this turnover, and especially the role of the non-profit Key West and Lower Keys Development Corporation {KWLKDC) in arranging short-term and long-term leases from the private sector, were studied in the March issue of Solare s Hill . The KWLKDC's position was made dramatically clear at a March 10 meeting, when the directors refused to consider Monroe County's request for temporary use of Walker (baseball) Field on the Truman Annex, which adjoins the courthouse , for sorely needed parking. The KWLKDC is committed to the commercial, not public, reuse of the property. The City now has five tenants at the Truman Annex on yearto-year leases until the turnover process is completed', probably early next year. An important step in this process was taken last month, when the City began assuming custody of buildings on the base as they are being occupied by tenants. By October, the City will have the responsibility for the maintenance and protection of all property north of a line drawn as a continuation of Angela Street. The Navy still has to approve each lease, but this new development cuts about six months from the leasing process. Two of the City's tenants — Borden Crystal Bottle Water and Key West Fragrance and Cosmetics Factory — are using property at the Truman Annex for storage. The other three have active operations that will be of interest to area residents and visitors .the National YMCA Center for Underwater Activities, the Murphy Pacific Marine Salvage Company , and the Florida Keys Marine Institute.

Juli a English, born Julia Shackelford, was written up in the 'Bronx PressReview recently when she celebrated her 100th birthday. She was born in Key Nest at Shackelford's Corner (the intersection of Duval and Petronia) during the presidency of U.S. Grant. She left Key West $5 years ago, but many older residents remember her with great affection. Her brother-in-law, James, incidentally, was principal of Douglass School a number of years back.
