(se e pag e 36 } Hetlo. In our last issue, Writer John Belter wrote a pieae arguing for the ri it of the local combo "Band of Foe '," to play two free aonaerts . t the Sands Beaah on the weekend of November 20th. There were complaints from the people in the neighborhood seven lodged formal complaints -and, on the third visit of the police to the beaah, the four members of the group and Lennie Milan, manager of the Sands, were arrested. John presented both sides of the question with his customary excellence and concluded with: I n vie w o f th e reasonabl e day ligh t hour s o f th e .concerts , an d considerin g th e musicians ' complianc e wit h th e request s t o lowe r th e volume , an d tak in g int o accoun t th e subjec tiv e natur e o f judgin g "loud ness, " an d aware , too , o f th e relativ e quietnes s tha t reign s . mos t o f th e tim e i n th e neigh borhood s o f thos e wh o complain ed , an d rememberin g th e righ t o f Lenni e Mila n t o pu t hi s privat e propert y t o us e a s h e see s fit , an d no t forget tin g th e right s o f tw o hundre d peopl e t o enjo y a properl y presente d concert , i t woul d see m tha t thos e person s (seven , a t th e tim e tha t thi s wa s written..ed. ) findi« g th e con cert s objectionabl e wer e bein g to o hardnose d an d uncompromis in g abou t thei r ow n righ t t o quietness . X had no,, argument with his reasoning, but I was •dismayed +o hear that the concerts were becoming a regular weekend event. I spoke with, friends in that area (or, rather, they spoke to me), and their reaction was totally negative to these events. The music was loud, and it travelled right into the homes of the residents of the area to such an extent that many took to leaving their homes on the weekends. These were not crabby, misanthropic, youth-hating people, but were -people who had had enough of this sound intrusion. When we ran this pieae, our impression at Solare s Hil l was that this was to have been a single weekend event, and we felt that the group should have been permitted to play; indeed, when I spoke 'with one outraged friend in the area, he said that if this were three or' four times a year, he wouldn't dream of complaining, but every weekend, well, that was a different, story. And I agree. You can't have loud musio on a regular basis in a residential area it just isn't fair. I have heard that for the past two weekends the group has not played, and hopefully this means that the situation is resolved -I hope so. I spoke with City Attorney Joe Allen recently a'bout what was happening with the eviction action against Island Renovations, Inc., at the concession stand at South Beach. He said that they are trying to dispose of the case as soon as possible and that there is to be no compromise with Island Renovation, Inc. -they are to be evicted. This is good news. The City-must follow through and see that a proper tenant gets the concession and gets it open for the public. That's all for now. next month.
