MONRO E OFFIC E SUPPL Y INC . ha s move d t o 52 9 Southar d St. (acros s fro m Telephon e Co. ] fa »x v * AKTIST S UNLIMITE D Fro m th e Edito r HelloI went to the First Invitational Key West Art Show at Mai lory Square the other night. This was an exhibition of the work of artists from Key Meet who would not ordinarily show their work at a gallery. It was well run, well attended, and hopefully will become an annual event. The police officer at the door was Frank Hattj who as usual did a first-rate job. I'm worried about what this newproperty re-assessment May do to the tax bills of the elderly and those with fixed incomes. As everyone knows, the real estate market has gone crazy in Key West, and old houses are selling at enormous prices. This new level of value will result in higher taxes, undoubtedly. What worries me is that person who lives here and has no indention of selling his place, but due to new and higher taxes might be forced to relocate. I hope that there can be some thought about these people when the new tax rolls are prepared in Tallahassee. Hey, ladies! Women volleyball players areneeded to make up a team or teams to play in Key West. At present they play at the Mary Immaculate gym Wednesday nights from 7:00 to 10:00. Those who have volleyballs are asked to bring them. I'm sorry to report that Sam of bicycle fame has died up Worth. I wrote about this fine gentleman in our April 1976 issue. Sam, as you probably well recall, rode a bike that was wildly festooned with flags, deaals, mirrors, antlers, and horns. People would hear Sam coming by the tooting of his horn, and they would receive a wave of the hand and a big grin as he went past. A good man and one who will be missed.

NAM E ADDRES S CIT Y City Commissioner Weekley had the idea of building a new jail facility on top of the parking garage. Wonder how that would work. It's nice to see those C.E.T.A, street cleaners at work downtown. Makes everything look a lot better. I was delighted with the Key West Players' production of Th e .Bo y Friend . Everything was % so zippy and happy and well done. Congratulations to Bill Sumner for his directing and to Edward Lee for his wonderful seta and to the inspired oast for their performances. I understand that there are plans to repeat this show at other times this year -I hope so! Speaking of repeating wonderful shows, wouldn't it he nice if Jimmy Russell's Cay o I-Iues o '7 6 were to be repeated also? That was another super delight that would be great to Bee again. See you next month. Cover artist this time is Bill Brockwaij.

" Ed. note: The intent of Section VI of the Zoning Ordinance, which deals with nonoonforming uses of land and nonconforming structures* is "to permit these non-oonfovmities to continue untiZ they are removed, but not to encourage their survival.... It is further the intent of this ordinance that nonconformities shall not be. enlarged upon, expanded or extended, .. ." Section VI 5 (a) says that a nonconforming structure may remain, but "no such structure may be enlarged or altered in a way which increases its nonconformity, ... " Mrs. Fork apparently feels that converting the utility shed into living quarters would increase or expand the nonconformity. The city's position seems to be .that if the City Code does not specifically prohibit Mr. Haas from converting his utility shed into living quarters for a member of his family, it • is not illegal. It seems to us that the situation is a matter of interpretation of the Zoning Ordinance, and that -interpretation can only aome from a Circuit Court decision, • ««Custo m • Carpentr y .
