Awards night banquet a few nights ago to see Bill Westray receive an award for his serviee to the community . This gave me great personal pleasure, sinc e J have been involved with Bill for a number of years now and feel that he is the most outstanding citizen in Key WestHe has given freely of his timej energy, talent, and, when necessary, his poaketbook to forward those causes that he believes in. Other than the thanks that he has received verbally over the years, this is the first formal expression of the community's thanks that he has received. I congratulate the N.A.A.C.P. for their excellence of ahoiee in giving Bill this award and, also, for their 'presentation of awards to Ann Barnes, Glenwood Lopes, Chester Conners, and Boy Grant -a first-rate cast, of hard-working and concerned citizens. WHILE I'M GIVING the nod to some people, I would like to mention the name of a man I think is due praise who rarely receives it from this newspaper, I was very pleased to hear that the $3,000,000 grant for the improvement of some of the housing projects had come through, and, to a great extent, credit must go to Charles "Sonny" McCoy, Mayor of Key West. He has spearheaded many of the grants that we have gotten, and I say, "Good work, Sonny. " WHILE I WAS bicycling by the Bull recently, someone yelled from the inside, "Print more John Hellen," and I couldn't agree more. He has done a piece for us on jogging, and I expect that it will be in next month's issue. SHERIFF BILLY FREEMAN has been making the headlines of late. He won his court case to permit him to give psychological and polygraph tests to his deputies. Billy went out on a limb to try to do this j and he has received a lot of grumbling from some of his men about it. It may be an unpopular act for some, but I think that the Sheriff is acting in what he feels is the public interest in doing this and is not worried by whatever unpopularity may occur. Also, he has sounded the' call for consolidation of the local police force into the County forceThis is an excellent idea, we feel, and we are glad that he has brought forth the proposal, SPLENDID NEWS that the Island Roots Festival will take place here again this year.
