Do you feel that there are potential problems in the proposed tie-line to Florida Power and Light (Southeast grid)? Do you feel that the S.E. grid is a reliable source of power? 2. What is you r opinion of the ocean energy generator that might be made available to the citizens of Key West by the U.S. government? (Ocean Thermal Energy Program is a government program to place demonstration plants in certain areas using ocean energy generators.) 3. What alternate sources of energy would you consider fo r CB S to help remove our dependence on oil? 4. In retrospect, how might you have reacted differently to the 1978 power crisis occasioned by the failure of the Stock Island steam turbine plant during the overhaul of the next largest generator?

3 2 3 3 poetry MY FEELINGS To be a balloon, when needles walk by, To drift with the breeze, no matter how high, To search on the sea shore for shells in the sand, To match for a sunrise with one there olose at hand, To put words together to show how I feel, So all that will read them know they are real, To feel things inside you that tear down your mind, To know with all this, you're made to be kind, The heart that you carry, no matter how hurt, Will just keep on beating, there under your shirt, For as long as it has to, For as long as it's needed. Jimmie Joe Gibson For Jessie Out There We'll watch it , Jesse, Keep an eye on your little island, See to it that the enemy does not thrive, The despoiler does not spoil, The haters of old things, rich things, Bo not break down the walls. We 'II walk old Duval for you, Sit on a bench in Mallory Square, Try the looks of Audubon House, Now and then watoh a sunset from the pier. We 'II walk along the shores on the Atlantic side And throw a crust to the wheeling terns. We'll love it for you, Jesse, All that you loved all life long. We'll hold i t in our hands like an old coin; We'll cherish it like a dear old face. Rest easy, Jesse Porter, daughter of seamen, We shall not treat lightly our inheritance. by Arthur Phillips ,,,a t th e onl y Ke y Wes t restauran t whos e gourme t dinin g ha s bee n praise d b y Trave l & Leisure , Th e Saturda y Review , Th e Ne w Yor k Times , Playboy , Th e Londo n Evenin g Standard , Holida y Magazine, an d Bette r Home s & Gardens .
