Martin for his fantastic Key West movie. So much material put out on this island is shallow and unfeeling or intense and ignorant that it is a real pleasure to see a movie on Key West that has been made with wisdom, affection, awareness, and style. SPEAKING OF congratulations, the Key West football team certainly has them coming for its great season. This island veally produces exciting athletes and first rate teams. WE'RE HAVING OUR first contest! Maybe the photo quiz is too easy; maybe it is too hard. We will learn from the response to this one and prepare next month's quiz accordingly. THIS IS THE Christmas issue of Solare s Hil l and we have remained light and happy, f MERRY CHRISTMAS and we'll see you next month. f Cover artist this time is Ann Irvine. Her .work may be seen at Guild Hall, Gingerbread"Gallery, and Artists Unlimited. Her Christmas cards are avail able at selected stores in Key West. $OJ&, igoujr orwr 1 wtifa wxur (oLLtoadnpiicv. i' HER E I S $10.0 0 FO R SUBSCRIPTIO N T O 1 1 ISSUE S O F SOLARE S HILL .

(I wonder if the hawks came back to Rose, Lane.) And now to briskly walkj Exchanging rapid talk; Form new bonds. (I wonder who hangs out at the Sandaastle.) I love the autumn shades; iHnds stronger than the Trades Sing wild tunes. (I wonder if the Salt Pond will.be saved.) The beaches of Cape Cod Velvet on feet unshod -With piled dunes. (I wonder what's happening .at the Casa Marina.) Brave little fishing boats: Raging Atlantic gloats, Wreck-making. (I wonder how the shrimp haul will be this year.) The sun goes down in flames, With clouds splays vivid games: Eye-breaking. (I wonder who'll be at Sunset tonight.) by Helen R.

She helped me when I felt alone and loved me more each day, And when I needed scolding for my WTong she had the way. She taught me how to cave for those who needed love as much, And taught me what was right and wrong, and not to need a crutch. She don tared all my cuts and scrapes and'hugged me when I cvied, And all the way to manhood stood there looking on with pride. A mother does a job so hard it's hard to .comprehend, But I just want to let you know she never sees the end. A mother makes a boy a man and loves him more with time. A mother makes the world go round. I love the one that 's mine. by Jimmy Joe Gibson Ne w Car s & Use d Car s W e ar e equippe d t o servic e wha t w e • sell .
