A specia l committe e wa s forme d t o loo k int o th e issu e an d t o com e u p wit h THERE IS LITTLE DOUBT that problems will arise if and when the so-called "bed tax" is implemented in Monroe County, and undoubtedly its opponents will call attention to them with loud and bitter voices.. New programs rarely start smoothly. But Solare s Hil l believes the snags would be miniscule compared to the good the tax could do for Key West and all of Monroe County. The arguments against the tax have all the substance of soap bubbles. One opponent, a long-time Key Wes t resident , went so far as to say, "I've stayed' in motels down here lots of times, so it's not just tourists who would pay the tax." The logic of his ^argument is, unfortunately , typical of the opposition. And the argument that the enabling law is good only for Daytona doesn't have much currency in Jacksonville, Tampa, and Miami, which all have enthusiastic praise for the tax. We urge the County Commissioners to approve the tax a.s soon as possible to give the Keys a fighting chance against the resorts who already use modern methods to attract modern tourists .

And the coral vine and the moss rose And the golden showertree And a blue mist on the sea's face And a scarlet dawn for me. I must down to Key West again. For the call of the island breeze Is a haunting call and a siren call That rustles the banyan trees. And all I ask is a tropic night When the tide is running free, And the fragrance of the jasmine Brings memories•to me. I must down to Ke,y West again, To the friends I've long known there, To the conch shells and the key limes And the sun off Nallory Square. And all I ask is a place to swim From a beach that's clean and free. And so, dear friends, take care, take care, Of our heritage from Him. CAPTIVE by Helen Thielen The beach is quiet as the sun goes down. Small furrows in the sand are canyons Filling slowly with the seepage of a step. Out on the dock rail a cormorant clings, Its wings too heavy with the sea to fly. I too am held by the sky and the:sea, Not for the time it takes a wing to dry, But bound forever by the sun and spray.

3 7 3 6 REMINISCING ON MY SCHOOLDAYS IN SPAIN When I was seven and lived in Spain, I'd walk two miles to school in the heat or rain. Wearing a white smock without a wrinkle or stain. My name was embroidered in bright red thread, And my grade was determined by the bow that was red. Blond little pigtails, snaggle tooth, too, The next year my tooth grew and my red bow was blue. I'd sit in school embroidering, with bandaids on my knees, And as soon as I'd get home I'd climb hills and trees. At night I'd string beads on the floor in candle light, Then my mom would tuck me in bed and.kiss me goodnight. I'd get up early the next day, brush my teeth, And bathe in the irrigation pool. Then I'd run off and skip the two miles to school. That life was so perfect, just like a dream. Certainly easier than now at seventeen. by Rachel Duffy maxel l ROCK , JAZ Z & QA&SICA L Bu y 3 UD-X t 9 0 Cassette s an d ge t on e o f thes e limite d Editio n Stere o Album s FREE !

This slicrhtly rusted can that once held instant or "soluble" coffee from the Soviet Union was found recently on • the Monroe County beach. Evidently, it washed ashore there after being discarded in Cuba or from a Russian ship passing nearby. According to the label, the powdered coffee is "adapted for quick preparation of a cup of coffee" and is "made from natural coffee and retains all of its flavorful and nutritious qualities." Sound familiar? . The directions are concise: "Put one teaspoon of the powder in a teacup (use a dry spoon'.) , pour in hot water and stir."

Its technicolor world is full of sound. And the sweetest sound you've -ever heard Is the music-making of the mockingbird '. When the mockingbird s.ings his song, There's nothing in life that's wrong. This is a lovely place, Caught here in time and space. When the mockingbird trills all day, What mockingbirds have to say, Magic is all around, Made by that wondrous sound. 'Cause he's in love, they say, The mockingbird sings that way. (When I'm in"love, I, too. Sing all the whole day . through.) So, we wait all the season .long, Just for that sweet-bird song. And when he starts to sing. Once more we believe in spring'. SUNDOWN REVERIE Striking amethyst orchids Light the rosy-colored dusk And brilliant sunsets fade Behind my views Of leafy palm fronds floating In the jasmine-scented breeze While night approaches With quiet settled hush We dance among the immortals In the hollows of our eyes More sustenance than this A man may never find by Teri Axford SftLJTDS Nlcois e Avocad o Stuffe d wit h Shrim p Bir d o f Paradis e (wit h Fres h Fruit , Cottag e Chees e o r Yogurt ) Seafoo d Sala d Stuffe d Tomat o (wit h Tun a Salad ) (wit h Shrim p Salad ) Avocado , Tomat o an d Onio n A l a Cart e Sala d Ope n fo r Lunc h Januar y 2 Vermout h Cassi s Blan c Cassi s Sangri a Swee t o r Dr y Vermout h Por t Crea m o r Dr y Sherr y Champagn e Cocktai l Dubonne t (Re d o r Bfonde ) LJDet t Mimos a SWPW1CJ1E S Tun a Sala d Reube n (Ope n face ) Shrim p Sala d Finge r Stea k (Sirloi n o n Garli c Bread ) Grille d Cheese , Tomat o & Canadia n Baco n (Ope n lace ) Hamburge r Cheeseburge r Grenach e Ros e Chabli s Burgund y Win e b y th e Glas s Egg s Benedic t Fis h o f th e Da y Platte r o f th e Da y Conc h Stea k Ston e Crab s OL D TOW N SQUAR E OPE N FO R DINNE R 6-1 1 CLOSE D FO R LUNC H SATURDA Y Heineke n (Ligh t o r Dark ) Bas s Al e St .

Three li t torches arc under one leg and over his shoulder. This Gulf sunset is vivid. Five musicians play uncommon lutes and mandolins. I hear, "There was an old gal from Key West, who had to take weight off her chest..." From the lyrical "fur-people" worshipper. Two sailboats parallel the pier, one with a canvas handpainted erotic, the other one white. Tourists gape at the iguanaman dripping with reptiles . Down here we're much thinner-skinned, quicker to breed, faster to shed. ' Each of our newest skinlayers is built of cells conceived on this island. We make the conscious choice to keep ourselves and others healed and living. There are no secrets. Praise the palmetto for enormity and gentleness. Praise the newt for dexterity, expression. • Then the cry from bananabread man, "Don't blame me if it's all gone soon; get i t now, hot and fresh." He cycles the wharf. On the deck, some hands are loaded; long on princes, long on queens. Then the nightime inkstain wash of waves permeating sand. The air and water merge at equal temperature. This island's breeze is a mix of sea, lime, and frangipani. Seabeaten, wooden facades mask paradise gardens, tropical birds, sculpted pools and waterfalls. This is a view of America and her people on an island 90 miles north of Cuba. Loo k What' s New ! Greetings . . . Stil l th e bes t selectio n o f greetin g card s i n th e Keys .
