I'm sorry to report that Dr. Profitt has been quite ill. He is recuperating now and should be returning to work in the near future. It would be a great help to the doctor if the people who owe him money for past services could get up to date with him now. Had a nice note from a woman in Canada. Here is part of it: I thoroughl y enjoye d m y visi t t o you r beautifu l cit y an d ca n sa y th e visi t wa s al l to o shor t an d hav e planne d o n makin g a retur n tri p t o Ke y Wes t an d fo r a longe r perio d nex t time .

Here is an update on the South Beach concession affair. In the middle of February 3 I spoke with City Attorney Joe Allen, who told me that he was going to recommend that the city reach an agreement with the present tenant, Island Renovations, Inc.j stipulating that the corporation come with the back rent due to the city and that they post a $6000 performance bond to guarantee that they would live up to the terms of the lease. Allen said he would recommend this action because it would avoid a long court case that would keep the concession area closed until it was settled. However, I spoke with Allen again on February 28, and he told me that he had sent a letter to the attorney for Island Renovations saying that inasmuch as no money has been received from the corporation to date, he will go ahead with the eviction suit. I personally feet that this is a better course of action to follow. There has notbeen a satis factory relationship between the city and this corporation, and I feel doubtful that .it would begin at this date. Several years ago, a rebate to the city taxpayers from excess money collected for an old bond, issue debt service was authorised by the city commission. These monies came to $76,091.74. The resolution, sponsored by Commissioner Lang Milian, stated that the city commission "desires to reduce the taxes imposed, on.the citizens of Key West," and that the money would be rebated to them "pro-rata to the amount they individually paid in debt service millage in the years 1973 and 1974." Several years passed and nothing was done with this money, and the matter came to the attention of new City Attorney Joe Allen. He told me that he would recommend that the city commission rescind the resolution because of the impracticality of rebating what would be such a small sum to so many people. He said that putting the money in the General Revenue Fund would be similar to rebating the money to the citizenry with a lot less expense and hassle. I felt that Richard Marsh was too hard on the radio stations in last month 's article "In the Air: Part II." I think that WHS has done a fine job bringing us classical music d'nd, wonder of wonders, opera. Even though they had to give up programming classical music in the. daytime, it still is great to have it at night. While I don't listen to radio other than WHS often, I know that the "Musica y Alegria" program on WKWF has been a great hit with the Cuban community, and on the occasions when I've heard Frisco Bob I've enjoyed his announcing. I'd like it if listeners would .write in and let us know how they feel about local radio. Have a nice month.

The wind has taken our sail, : And we too have been torn by the winds ' anger. Flying fish had warned us we would he intruders, But we ignored their pleas. ...Now, our clothes have become jetsam, Lost as we fought the pull of a rugged moon. Where is the light of Sand Key? Seaweed ties me close to the side, A mate keeps a grasp on my legs. Across the slippery deck, he and I slide, As splinters scratch our, blistered flesh. ..
