There has been a lot of publicity over the trifling sum that they are being given. It in no way represents the hours put in by the commissioners. They should be paid at least seven or eight thousand dollars a year. ANOTHER TRIFLING matter that has been blown up is the issue of nepotism. This is an .island in which many of the local people are related to one another through blood or through marriage and you simply can't fault a commissioner if a third cousin (once removed) of his is given a job by the city or county. A recent example of this was the announcement that a step-cousin of Commissioner Jerry Hernandez had been given a job by the County. Well, nepotism as J see it, is the practice of showing favoritism to clos e family: i.e., brother, uncle, mother, first cousin, eta. Hiring one's brother, putting a political crony in a position, helping one 's friends unfairly to get jobs, and advancing people in jobs for reasons other than merit are the real threats to keeping a system fair. This happens a lot here and it is very wrong. However^ a step-cousin getting a job seems innocent to me (assuming that he qualifies on his own merit.) THANKS IS DUE to Bob Crane and his mother for their generous gift of the chimes for the old city hall clock tower. Apparently^ the idea to give them came about during a conversation with Frank Fontis when Bob looked up at the clock tower and noticed that hours were not being struck. Frank explained that there was not enough money to purchase and install the chimes in the restoration budget. Shortly thereafter, the Crane's check arrived and now wehave chimes. Thank you. SOLARE S HIL L could use a writer from up the Keys who could supply us with a monthly column on what's happening from Marathon north. Anyone who might be interested is invited to write us. WE 'RETAKING our vacation after this, issue, so we won 't be out again until August, and we'll see you then.. Cover artist this time is Jack Dor emus. His work may be seen at the Rooftop Gallery in the Harbor House Arcade on Front Street. HER E I S $10.0 0 FO R SUBSCRIPTIO N T O 1 1 ISSUE S O P SOLARE S HILL .
