Hats off to one of Key West's number one citizen-activists, Larry Gomes. Larry is continually looking out for the rights of his fellow citizens and has emerged as a leading spokesman for the Senior Citizens of Monroe County. Most recently, Larry has been campaigning to have all permanently disabled personsmade eligible for total exemption from -property taxes. Hitherto, the law had exempted only those whose hundred percent disability put them in a wheelchair, or left them blind, or those who were hemiplegics. Larry carried on such an effective letter campaign to get ALL permanently disabled people covered by this exemption that he received a personal note fron State Senator Bob McKnight saying "Larry, you have convinced me. I will support Senate Bill #7." (Senate Bill #7 -is a bill placing all permanently disabled persons under a personal . property tax exemption if they meet certain criteria, i.e., less than $8,200 a year income, 5 years residency in the state of Florida, and are certified permanently disabled by two doctors who are specialists in different fields.) This form of citizen participation in legislative affairs is very effective, and many people will have something else to thank' Larry Gomez for ifthis bill passes. • I spoke again with John Mercer about what the Old Island Restoration Commission is doing about the non-conformanae of Billie's Restaurant with their regulations. He told me that they had followed all their guidelines in bringing action against Billie 's, and that on May 7 he would speak to the City Commission at their regularly scheduled meeting and get their permission to institute court proceedings. He was told by Joe Allen, III, City , Attorney t that the OIJRC would need approval of the City Commission before entering litigation. Drive sometime along the ocean drive in Ft. Lauderdale and you will enjoy a full view of the ocean; drive along the ocean in Miami Beach and you will get claustrophobia from the concrete buildings on the ocean side of the road. Unfortunately, Reat Beach is being scooped up by developers, and the idiocy of permitting buildings to go up on the ocean side of Atlantic Boulevard is continuing. And not a sound from the City Commission except for murmurs of approval. The pay scale for our city police remains wretched. Recently we lost an outstanding officer when Lt. Danny Lastres resigned, and the numbers continue to dwindle. Ed Swift spoke about the feasibility of a bond issue to get more money for the police. Maybe this is a good approach; maybe it wouldn't work, but we've got to come up with something. , See you next month. Cover Artist this month is George. Abbott, He is a partner in the gallery Cayo Hueao Graphics at 80S.Duval Street. orwr \ (Mr OJ mm & ous t wmmmma tmm HER E I S $10.0 0 FO R M Y SUBSCRIPTIO N T O 1 1 ISSUE S O F SOLARE S HILL .

2 1 BEHIND THE BADGE A LOO K INSID E TH E KE Y WES T POLIC E DEPARTMEN T b y Richar d Mars h MENTA L HEALT H CLINI C TSERE EAS BEEN considerable discussion over the past several months about the possibility of abolishing the government of the City of Key West. Calm, reasoned discussion of the subject is rare. Those who equate abolishing the municipal corporation known as the City of Key West with wiping more than a century and a half of Conch tradition and history from memory react emotionally, fearing the loss of their identity as Key West Conchs. Many whose thinking is not clouded by emotion are nevertheless hampered by imperfect knowledge of the workings of city government. With this article, Solare s Hil l begins a "nuts and bolts" series of how things work at City Hall, including some of the frequently heard criticisms from citizens, answers from . officials, and comments by knowledgeable observers. The views and opinions in this article are the result of personal observation by this reporter or by close observers of police activities. Most observers l did not wish to be quoted or to have their opinions attributed to them for fear of reprisal, but their opinions are supported by this reporter" 1 s experience.

This town has been changing, it ' s evident to me, But this aornev is the same under the tree. There are many who have sat here, the list is long, From Cigarette Willy to writers of song. There is no discrimination undev the tree, Whatever you're worth, whoever you be. 'iou probably don't know me, but've seen me before, I am just a lover of a tree, I sit there no move.
