KEY LOOK-OUT, June 11, 1959

WHAT READERS SAY

Key Look-out:
Recently I had occasion to examine the Gulf shore of Long-
boat Key at some distance from its southern end and found
there unmistakable evidences of recent and serious erosion.
Here the rate of erosion reportedly accelerated at the time of
the construction of the jetty at the south end of Anna Maria
and of certain dredging and filling operations at or near Long-
boat Pass. (At that same time the erosion at the north end
greatly accelerated and the condition there is still extremely
troublesome. )
I also recently joined in a brief examination of the southern
shore of New Pass and saw there also recent erosion which con-
stitutes a serious threat to a number of very valuable houses
and fine properties. Here a local owner stated that the bad
erosion there began coincidentally with the construction of the
new Ringling Causeway bridges and approaches.
That the accelerated erosion on Longboat Key and at other
locations in this general area is due at least in considerable
measure to such things as fills for bridge approaches, to dredg-
ing, to bulkheading, and to the jetty, seems a warrented con-
clusion, and it seems evident that the Sunshine Skyway cause-
ways, the Ringling bridges, and the Anna Maria Longboat
Pass project have resulted in some very costly results on the
negative side of the ledger along with the benefits.
Insofar as I have discovered after some effort, it seems that
these various projects were undertaken without any extensive
study of their probable effects on erosion generally. That such
investigations would have been wholly warrented seems plain.
With the many new projects now planned for this area, and
in particular for Longboat and Bird Keys, there will undoubted-
ly be initiated various proposals for new works involving dred-
ging, filling, bulkheading, changing of waterways, diversions
of flow, etc., any of which may result in further changing and
complicating the present distressing situation and advancing
still further into the future any chance that Nature will again
have restored a state of comparative balance of forces,
All this points to the necessity for extreme care on the part
of governing and controlling agencies in authorizing future pro-
jects involving changes and disturbances of our water bodies:
their flats, shorelines, tidal runs, configurations, depths, etc.
Here is an interesting if vexing observation. Say we have
erosion as we do and that eventually the correct remedial
measures are made effective. Then for a while conditions be-
come stabilized, but bye and bye a new project is to be made
a reality. The new project causes an imbalance, and serious
erosion, in a new pattern, starts again. It becomes necessary
then, to plan and execute new erosion remedial structures, to
revise the system.
All this leads to an indicated policy: (A) Take steps to pro-
vide such erosion preventative or corrective measures as may
be found necessary after proper- investigation, to take care of
present conditions. (B) Do not make any changes or put in any
additional construction of a nature affecting erosion unless
such be absolutely necessary to the public welfare, and then
only after suitable investigations of probable resultant erosive
effects and after provision of appropriate remedial or preventa-
tive measures. Stop the vicious circle!

In all my life, which has not been a short one, and in all the
communities in which I have lived and there have been many,
I have never observed as disgraceful a degree of inconsideration
on the part of contractors working on a municipal project as has
been shown by the Higgins Company, who is presently working
on the sewer andwater project on Lido Key and St. Armands Key.
I presume that this is not the only spot in Sarasota where this
disgraceful disregard for other people's comfort has been exhib-
ited. For months now we have been tortured by such things as
the putrid smell of sulfur water running in our back yards and
in our front yards, due to poorly constructed drain lines and to
drain lineswhichwere not emptied underwater into the bay, but
which were allowed to splash the water.


5
The fumes of the sulfur water has raised havoc with our home
andwith many otherhouses. Such things as silverware have been
put away to prevent further pitting and discoloration as a result
of these fumes.
The roads around our homes have been left in such horrible
condition that there have been days that we were unable to bring
our cars into our own yards. One day my secretary who happened
to be walking on crutches had to in some miraculous manner sur-
mount a mountain of sand in order to get into my office, which
is in my home. Furthermore, barracades are put up shelter skelter
with no regard as to their need. Very often they are put up on
roads that are completely passable. Often they are completely
closedandno signs of "Closed Road" or "Detour" are left there
with a result that we have had to travel an extra mile or more
in order to reach our homes.
Over and above all these discomforts, we have had between
one and three pumps going at full speed all night--every night--
for weeks on end. These pumps are all broken down, rickety
affairs, which are a disgrace to the owners, and which in my
opinion couldvery easily be equippedwith mufflers or silencers,
which would eliminate ninety per cent of the awful noise which
keeps us awake night after night to the tune of machine guns.
I cannot understandwhythis disgraceful situation has not been
mentioned either by the newspapers or has been taken care of by
the "Esteemed City Fathers."
I would greatly appreciate this letter being printed in the
hopes that otherswho have suffered as we have will make them-
selves heard.


Paper Hater

Lewis VanWezel
Lido Key


For the past year your paper has been cluttering up my mail
and yard and has cost me nothing. Now I hate to accept char-
ity from anyone, even if it is something I don't want. Therefore
I am enclosing here what I think your paper is worth. ($50 Con-
federate note, issued at Richmond, Va., on February 17, 1864)
There is just one question I would like to ask? Why do we
need a paper that is 90% advertising, that contains news that is
at least a week old when printed, and that carries editorials
that are sowishy-washeyand fence-stradling that one can never
tell whether you are editorializing or apologising.
May I make a suggestion? Why not turn this over to the pupils
of.Sarasota High School. I am sure they could do a better job.
Not sincerely yours,
James M. Miller

J. M. M.
Why not Manatee High School? To be frank about it, and
truthful, our ads were 67.9%, not 90%. As for editorials, please
send us a sample. We will publish it. And please sign your
own name next time. It's manly! --Ed.


Key Look-out:
Mr. Allen L. Thomas is now
the manager of the Manatee
County Public Beach. Please
mail the copies of the Key
Look-out for display at the
beach to him.

Pretty Silly?


Key Look-out:
About two or three weeks
ago, there appeared an arti-
cle in your paper about the
action taken by the newly
formed Citizens Committee.
It was.with regard to turning
the southern tip of Anna Maria
into a public beach.
The committee set forth a
list of conditions that must be
met before they would approve
the Public Beach idea. The
conditions appeared to have
been dreamed up in a smoke
filled room by a group of
bald headed well-to-do retired
ex.millionaires sipping on
their scotch and sodas.
Some of the points were
well taken, such as 'roundthe
clock patrol, which we have,

KEY GOVERNMENT
Housing Ordinance
ANNA MARIA The Brad-
enton Beach City Council
heard the first reading of "AN
ORDINANCE PROVIDING FOR
THE REPAIR OR ELIMINA-
TION OF UNFIT HOUSING
AND DANGEROUS BUILDING
CONDITIONS" at its regular
monthly meeting last Friday
night, and it seems destined
for passage on second reading
at the July meeting.
It gives broad powers to the
Building Inspector who may
summons an infringer to ap-
pear at a hearing.
The Inspector may ask that
the infringement be immed-
iately corrected, failing which
he may order the premises
vacated. If not vacated he
will placard the building as
unsafe. The Inspector may
even order removal or demol-
ishment of the premises.
Some of the items listed
are listing walls, damaged or
deteriorated walls or ceilings,


(natural, and created) in the area. Our
thought is that these Passes need maintenance
work P. D. Q.; and they'll certainly require
future work to tie into the Inland Waterway.
Thus, we were startled to read in the book-
let you sent ("Water Resources Development")
(Page 69)......."desires of local interests are
not definitely known... -"
Consequently, it is our intention to advise'
you that this Board at the request of the
Power Squadron, Outboard Motorboat Clubs,
Charter Boat Captain Association, Auxiliary,
and Chambers of Commerce have passed a
formal motion asking the Corps to have at it.
We realize, of course, that there is a formal
requirement of procedure that is necessary for
us to follow in order to bring the Corps into
the Act. We'll appreciate your advice as-to
precisely what steps we must take to meet
these requirements. In short how.do we get
going?
Do you plan to attend the Florida Shore and
Beach Preservation Directors meeting at Ft.
Pierce, May 16th? If so, perhaps you and I
can discuss these matters then.
Sincerely,
James D. Neville
County Commissioner

MARINE

City Island Marina
A lease on the southern por-
tion of the City Island as a site
for an outboard motorboat ma-
rina is expected to be signed
by the Sarasota City Commis-
sion and the City Island Ma-
rina, Inc. at the city commis-
sion meeting Monday night.
As soon as the lease is signed
work will start immediately on
construction of the outboard
facilities with the likelihood
that the marina will be in op-
eration before October, accord-
ing to Richard Wilson, who
heads the marina company.
The firm, Wilson said, ex-
pects to invest more than
$150, 000 in providing slips,
docks, seawalls and other fa-
*cilities that will accommodate
more than 250 boats under a
monthly rental arrangement.
The marina is asking-for a
20-year lease at an annual
rental of 3 per cent of the gross
income to the city, with a
minimum guarantee of$1, 500
a year.
The City Planning Board has
approved the plans for the ma-
rina and referred the project to
the city commission for final
action on the lease.
At its meeting next Monday,
the city commission also is to
consider several proposals for
the development of another
marina for larger craft on the
mainland side of Sarasota Bay
at the Civic Center.
Ray Littrell, of Siesta Key,
and associates have submitted
the most ambitious plan for
this marina, which would be
financed by a revenue bond
issue and would cost about
$975,000. It would accommo.
date about 350 boats to start
and could be expanded to
twice that capacity.
There has been some talk
recently favoring locating the
marina at the present city pier
location at the foot of Main
Street to make the business
district more accessible to
boatmen.

MAINLAND GOVINMENIT


Stahl On Flowers
Siesta Key artist Ben Stahl, whose career as an artist and il-
lustrator has embraced about everything from a Coca Cola ad
to Bible illustrations, also has definite views on civic culture
and beauty.
In a recent talk before the Sarasota Rotary Club, the Siesta
Key expert with brush and palette chided the Sarasota area for
not taking advantage of its natural assets in making the com-
munity more attractive.
He proposed a broader use of tropical flowers and plants in a
landscaping and beautification program of the area's principal
highways, drives and parkways. He described art and illustra-
tions as a form of salesmanship, and said the Sarasota area
could do a better job of selling itself to visitors by producing a
more attractive "package."
Stahl, noted as an illustrator for the Saturday Evening Post.
and other national magazines, perhaps is best known for his
Biblical paintings, "The 14 Stations of the Cross," which he
did for a religious publishing house. He spent considerable
time in the Holy Land, absorbing background and atmosphere
for this major undertaking.
He spent six weeks in the Far East earlier this year on a spe-
cial assignment for the U. S. Air Force, gathering material
for some murals he will do for the Air Force Academy at Col-
orado Springs.
Stahl's home and studio on Siesta Key form one of the show-
places of the area, his $150,000 estate providing a striking
contrast to the old conception of an artist struggling to eke out
an existence in a garret.


YOUTH

ft sota Key Schials
School children from the Keys are hailing the arrival of sum-
mer vacation and their release from the long daily school bus
rides to and from their homes to the mainland for the next 12
weeks, but the problems of the school officials never cease.
Sarasota County School Superintendent Carl Strode and his
staff of assistants already are at work on their future plans for
the day when schools will be economically justified on Siesta
and Longboat Keys, and thus do away with the problem of
transporting hundreds of children from the keys to the main-
land schools for nine nionths of the year.
Strode told the KEY LOOK-OUT that the general planning
of the school authorities now calls for a new elementaryschool
on Siesta Key within the next two to five years, and another
elementary school on Longboat, perhaps within the same per-
iod of time, depending on the rapidity of the growth and de-
velopment of that area under the broad plans of the Arvida
Realty Corp. for the 2, 000 acres of key property recently ac-
quired from the John Ringling North interests.
Strode pointed out the school board already has completed
taking title to 10 acres of land on Siesta Key for an elemen-
tary school site in the former Marchant Property, off Midnight
Pass Road opposite the Riegel Boat Yards.
This site is centrally located on the Key and was acquired
at a cost of $27, 000 for nine acres, with one acre being don-
ated to the school board for recreational facilities, Strode ex-
plained.
While the Siesta Key school is not now included in the
school building program, Strode said.he felt the continuation
of the present growth rate in the area would require a con-
struction program there in less than five years and perhaps
within two years.
Strode said the school authorities had contemplated an ele-
mentary school on Longboat Key in the more distant future,
to accommodate all the children on Longboat, Lido, St.
Armands and.Ltdo Shores, but he added that the Arvida devel-
opment might speed up the need for the Longboat school, a
situation that is not yet predictable.
In major developments of this kind, the developers most
often contribute land for school sites as a stimulus to the de-


KEY LOOK-OUT, June 11, 1959

velopment. This was done in South Gate, where the site for
the Brookside Junior High School was donated by the develop-
ers, and in Brentwood, where the developers provided the site
for the new Brentwood Elementary School.
Within a measurably few years, the Keys seem destined to
come i ..o their own as a vital part of the public schools
system.

BEACH, BAY AND GULF

Land Dispute Settled
A long-time legal dispute over the ownership of Coolidge
Park along the Gulf on Lido Key appears to have been ended.
The City of Sarasota is expected to obtain clear title to the
1, 200-foot strip of waterfront west of Benjamin Franklin Drive,
southward from John Ringling Boulevard to the present city-
owned Lido Beach tract.
John H. Weir, vice president and general manager of Arvida
Corp., which recently acquired the 2, 000 acres of Key prop-
erty formerly known as the John Ringling properties, has an-
nounced Arvida would relinquish any claim it might have to
the Coolidge Park site. It was the subject of litigation on the
part of John Ringling North and associates and was part of the
Ringling properties sold by North to the Arvida Corp. in the
$13,500, 000 land deal.
Originally, the Coolidge Park tract covered about 10 acres
along the Gulf of Mexico, but the effects of erosion have re-
duced the usable area now to less than an acre in a lower tri-
angle adjoining the present Lido Beach area.
The Coolidge Park tract is now and for many years has been
posted against use as beach because of danger from the groins
that were installed in an effort to halt the steady erosion,
which at points has reached all the way to Benjamin Franklin
Drive.
City Manager Kenneth Thompson said eventually the relin-
quishing of the private ownership claims to the tract should be
necessary before the area could ever be used as a public beach.
The dispute over ownership of the tract arose from the fact
that when John Ringling laid out Lido Key for development in
the 1920's, he designated this area along the gulf as Coolidge
Park, indicating he intended it for use as a public park. But
the tract apparently never was officially dedicated as a park,
and the Ringling heirs contended it was part of the Ringling
estate. They paid county taxes on the property, but never
paid any city taxes, one of the facts involved in the city's
claim to the property as a public park and beach area.
In 1958, the Ringling interests paid county taxes of $23.26
on the Coolidge property, based on a valuation of $1, 200, or
only $1 a front foot for the land.
However, if Arvida carries out its intention to deed the area
to the city, the litigation will come to an end, and the city
will own clear title to 1, 200 feet of gulf front, normally worth
about a half-million dollars, less what it will cost to reclaim
and refill the area for park and beach purposes. Potentially,
it is invaluable, in that it could give Lido Key nearly a half-
mile of public beach area in the midst of some of the most
valuable gulf front property on the west coast of Florida, and
enhance the key's popularity as a resort center.

After Germany's surrenderhe
was asked to go in with the ex.
pectedinvasion of Japan which
never happened. He stayed in
Germany as Chief Dental Sur-
geon of the 7th Army. His
headquarters were in Heidelberg
where he had two cars with
chauffers and his own plane. For
a while he enjoyed life forthe
firsttime in four years of inten-
sive medicalservice. InEngland
and Ireland his only diversion
had been a few brief opportuni-
ties to shoot grouse and ride to
hounds.
After the war he became
interested in the problem of
children's teeth. He left his
New York practice and set up
a clinic for children at Wood-
bury, Conn., where for years
he had maintained his count-
ry home. The Connecticut
State Dental Association sup-
ported his effort and as the
result of his work he was asked
to travel the state giving clin-
ics, where he taught how to
handle children's teeth.
He then set up an intensive
two year experiment at the
Southbury, Conn. Training
School which is state operated.
His purpose was to determine
the effect of fluorine com-
pounds on children's teeth.
The water supply was fluorin-
ated. All food was grown on
the school farm and the grow-
ing crops were irrigated with
fluorinated water. Even the
cows fodder was fluorinated.
He picked a group of 200


children and an identical
group at the training school at
Mansfield which was identical
with the institution at South-
bury. This gave him a perfect
comparison against which to
test his results. Children from
both groups were supplied with
food produced on iron free
soil. His staff analyzed the
fluorine content of everytooth
requiring extraction. This was
done in the special laboratory
he built at the school.
Within six months all tooth
decay had been arrested and
there were no more teeth a-
vailable for analysis because
no more needed extracting.
He had proved it worked.
But did the fluorine enter the
tooth through the surface of
the tooth or through the blood
stream? After more work he
determined it worked both
ways, but more completely
through the blood streamwhich
was supplied with fluorine
through the food and water.
In September of 1955 he
moved to Casey Key where
his father, the late Addis
Spurge, who died this spring,
was living in retirement. War-
ren had been coming to Casey
since 1929 to spend vacations
at his father's winter home.
Dr. Spurge has done consid-
erable racing in these waters,
particularly in the annual St.
Petersburg-Havana race. He
also sails in local races such
as Davis Island in Tampa to
Venice and St. Petersburg to

Beach Access
Sarasota County Attorney
Donald C. McClelland received
a request on June 2 from the
Board of County Commissioners
to study the county's position on
a strip of property on Longboat
Key.
The property in question was
deeded to the county in an ex-
change with L. N. Bradshearat
Coquina Beach. Mr. Bradshear
had accidently built on a strip
belonging to the county, with
access to the beach, and the
swap was in correction of Mr.
Bradshear's error. However,
there was an error in the deed
conveying the property.

A recent dispute over the
right-of-way of the property has
been brought before the Com-
missioners by Attorney Henry
J. Williford, whosaidhis clients,
R. F. Copes and Alan T. Owens
pf Buttonwood Harbour, seek
access to the Gulf for owners
and guests residing on the Bay
side. He said a trade with the
county to vacate a road had
been executed in fee simple
and a dedication should now be
made to provide public access
to the beach.
At present the land in ques-
tion has been landscaped by re-
sidents who live on adjoining
lots. These residents are oppos-
ed to the access andhave shown
resentment to a right-of-way
being cut through.
One of the County Commis-
sioners stated, in a telephone
conversation with the Look-out,
that this property, as all others
deeded to the Commission is
set aside as a public park. Un-
der these circumstances anyone
is allowed to use the area and
cross from the highway to the
Gulf as in any other park.

-Elder Statesman
Karl Bickel probably knows
more people on the keys than
.anyone. He was founder of the
Longboat Cabana Club in 1935,
and has been a close and keen
observer of Key affairs.
He is a sort of elder states-
man in Sarasota as well as an
ardent civic leader, writerand
former head of the United
Press. He has added a new facet
to his remarkably successful
career.
In his latter years, Mr. Bick.-
el has turned to the field of art
as a hobby and has displayed
the same flair for art that he
has had in the field of letters
for so many years.


As a result of his art, Mr.
Bickel has been honored by
the Sarasota Community Gal-
lery with his first one-man ex-
hibit now showing at the Sara-
sota Federal Savings & Loan
Assn. at 1718 Main St.
On exhibition are 34 of Mr.
Bickel's paintings, with water
colors predominating. They
include still life, landscapes,
ships, flowers, all with a dis-
tinct touch of realism and a
feeling for form and color.
The artist's touch is bold and
strong or soft and delicate as
the occasion demands. His
choice of colors and shading
show the influence of Florida's
beautiful tropical climate as
well as subject matter. The


paintings range from post card
size to larger works, yet each
shows the artist's feeling for
nature and her handiwork.
Unfortunately for art collect-
ors, none of Mr. Bickel's pic-
tures are for sale. He paints to
satisfy himself and to gratify
his friends. He developed his
interest in art first as a collect-
or and as a member of the
Ringling Museum's advisory
board.
Artist Hilton Leech, who
wrote a forward for the Com-
munity Gallery's catalogue for
the Bickel show, had this to
say:
"Karl Bickel once said: 'To
look at a work of art is like
drinking a good cocktail; i


can give energy to the tired
eye; it can be a very real and
exciting personal experience.'
"His work like his life will
never be dull and his friends
will find many surprises in
store for them here."

opinion on any key problem
to be known, just write it
down and mail it. The Key

NATURE

Prepare For The Seldom Hurricane
It has been nine years since the Florida west coast played un-
happy host to a hurricane. In the past 73 years, only eight trop-
ical storms of hurricane force have hit the Florida mainland on
the west coast between Fort Myers and Cedar Keys. Few of
these have bothered the Sarasota-Bradenton area.
On June 15, only four days distant, the U. S. WeatherBureau
and the Armed Services begin their annual "hurricane hunting"'
season, which continues through November 15.
Because of the proximity of the hurricane season and because
the population of the Sarasota Keys has more than doubled
since the last severe storm, it seems practical to discuss hur-
ricanes and the ordinary precautions that should be taken to in-
sure safety, if and when a tropical blow should be heading our
way.
Actually New York and New England have suffered much
more from hurricanes than this part of Florida, or for that mat-
ter any part of Florida for many years past.
Most of the residents of this area have moved here since the
last hurricane and most of these residents no doubt are unfam-
iliar with the things that persons should or should not do when
a storm threatens.
If a hurricane warning is sounded which is days in advance
the County Civil Defense authorities will swing into action.
Emergency shelters will be established in public schools for
families who feel their homes may not be safe. The Red Cross
will be on hand for emergency help and relief if and where
needed.
Perhaps foremost on the list for residents not to do when a
hurricane alert has been sounded is to become panicky.
The Weather Bureau and the Hurricane Hunters do a fine job
of detecting and tracking the tropical storms and everyone in
their path receives ample warning. Even after the alerts have
been sounded, these storms have an uncanny way of veering
off in another direction.
But, when a hurricane warning has been hoisted and while
the storm is still a good 12 hours away, it becomes practical
to heed the advice of veterans who have been through numer-
ous howlers unscratched.
For residents of the Keys, whose property is not high above
sea level, the most practical thing to do in the face of a hur-
ricane, is to install your hurricane shutters, batten down tight,
remove everything from the yard in the way of tools, garbage
pails, lawn furniture and the like, and seek a haven on the
mainland.
This advice is not so much because of the high winds, but
because of the peril from possible hurricane tides, which often
run 10 to 15 feet above normal, and worsened by high waves.


15
The history of hurricanes in Florida shows that many more
people lose their lives in hurricanes by drowning than from any
other cause. However, if you are situated in a site removed
from any danger from high water and your home is of good con.
struction, you are probably as safe there as any where, and the
storm should pose no threat.
Then, all you need to do is to prepare for it. Hurricane shut-
ters should be put up at the windows and doors, or the doors
and windows should be properly boarded. Provision should be
made so that one window may be kept partly open on the side
away from the storm to prevent a vacuum.
All loose articles about the grounds should be safely put away
to avoid the danger of flying objects in the high winds.
A supply of food should be made available, mostly canned
goods that will keep for several days should there be a power
failure and the refrigerator is cut off. The bath tub and several
other containers should be sterilized and filled with fresh water,
to insure an adequate supply for two or three days.
Each household should be equipped with one or two flashlights,
extra batteries, or with candles or other emergency lighting
equipment. Electric power often is one of the first facilities to
be lost during high winds, which play havoc with power lines
and poles. Often the telephone lines in some areas also will
be disrupted.
It is good to have a radio powered by batteries so that house-
holders may listen to the weather bureau reports, before,during


and after the storm. Pay no
attention to rumors, and rely
instead on the official com-
munications transmitted over
the air waves or in your news-
paper.
Most important of all is to
remain in doors during the
storm, and you'll be safe.Do
not go out during the lull
when the storm's eye passes
over. This only means the
winds will return again shortly
from the opposite direction
with perhaps even more forces.
Stay indoors if at all possi-
ble until the storm has abated,
and then venture out with cau-
tion. Avoid fallen powerlines
and instead notify the power
company. Make contacts with
the authorities in any emerg-
ency and if the storm should
happen to be a real severe one,
volunteers might be needed for
emergency work.


F
*?


43


It also is a good idea to have
your automobiles filled with
gasoline before the storm hits,
to insure transportation immed-
iately afterward.
Hurricanes should never be
taken lightly, yet they are no
great danger when the neces-
sary precautions are taken.
In the first place, the Sara-
sota area is one of the safest
in the state from the stand-
point of hurricane statistics.
The chances for Miami orKey
West having a hurricane are 1
to 7, Fort Myers, 1 in 12,
while the Sarasota, Tampa,
St. Petersburg area is 1 in 20.
And, remember, there is no
need for alarm or panic in this.
day of immediate communica-
tions and accurate stormtrack-
ing. Be prepared and you won't
be hurt.
In fact, old timers in Florida
have become so immune to
hurricanes that they plan hur-
ricane parties, and ride out
the storm safe indoors with a
round of merriment instead of
worry. They rightly believe
that you might as well enjoy
this awesome marvel of na.
ture--ii you are prepared for
it.

KEY GOVERNMENT

Anna Maria Ordinances

ANNA MARIA Four new
ordinances were introduced at
the June meeting of the Anna
Maria City Commissioners and
will become law 10 days after
the second reading at a special
meeting on June 8.
The first ordinance consid-
ered prohibits dogs on the
beaches under any circumstan-
ces and provides that they not
be permitted to roam at large
elsewhere in the city. Fines
and penalties are provided for
non-compliance.
Dr. F. K. Allen, Director
of the Manatee Co. Health
Dept. recently warned that
dogs ?oaming on the beaches
and elsewhere presented a def-
inite health menace. Holmes
Beach is considering a similar
ordinance and BradentonBeach
also has an ordinance which
recently became operative.
Regulation of Waterways
The second ordinance has
to do with the regulation of
canals and waterways, and the
building of slips, docks, boat-
houses, etc. Also, included is
a measure to control the speed
of boats. Holmes Beach recent-
ly adopted a similar ordinance.
Street End Parking
Due to many complaints
from residents on streets which
end at the Gulf, an ordinance
has been prepared which pro-
hibits parking on certain
streets west of Snapper Street


(Gulf Dr.). People from the
mainland and other Island lo-
cations have often parked cars
in these streets while using the
beaches, so that residents
could not get in or out of their
own driveways.
Penalties therefore are pro-
vided for parking cars on all
streets between Snapper Street
and the Gulf between and in-
cluding Gulf and Sycamore
Avenues, with the exceptions
of Spring, Magnolia and Palm
Avenues. Other streets which
are included in the ordinance
are Fir, Spruce and Cypress
west of Grouper Street.
These new regulations will,
however, exempt residents,
property owners and invitees.
Boat Landing Area
The fourth ordinance intro-
duced has to do with providing
an area for landing boats, with
attention being called to the
fact that this is separate and
apart from a boat LAUNCHING
area!
The ordinance proposes to
provide a boat LANDING area
in Bay Front Park in a strip
approximately 300 feet long,
directly North of the canal
entrance to Lake LaVista. Here
boat owners may land to pick
up or discharge passengers, to
remain for picnics, and beach
their boats while bathing, etc.

BEACH, BAY & GULF
Waterway Jolt
Prospects for an early start on construction of the Ft. Myers
to Tarpon Springs section of the inland waterway along the
Florida West Coast sustained an unexpected jolt last week when
the House Appropriations Committee in Congress failed to ap-
propriate $1,400, 000 sought by the West Coast Inland Naviga-
tion District.
The appropriations request is still pending in the senate and
hopes are still alive for favorable action during this session of
Congress.
The Army Engineers are standing by ready to go to work on
the 145-mile project between the Caloosahatchee River at Ft.
Myers and the Anclote River at Tarpon Springs.
Helping to exert the pressures in Washington are the state's
congressional delegation, including Rep. James A. Haley of
Sarasota and Rep. William C. Cramer of St. Petersburg;form-
er Rep. J. Hardin Peterson of Lakeland, special representative
of the West Coast Inland Navigation District (WCIND); Ells-
worth Simmons of Tampa, chairman of the WCIND, augment-
ed by resolutions from the many governmental and civic bodies
in the six counties to be served by the inland waterway.
A twofold need for the inland route has been cited in Con-
gress in support of the appropriation. First, the inland water-
way would provide a protected route for vital shipping in time
of war, and, second, it would stimulate travel to Florida and
the west coast area by pleasure craft and boost the area's tour-
ist economy.
Since 1947, the six counties in the WCIND (Pinellas, Hills-
borough, Manatee, Sarasota, Lee and Charlotte) have levied a
one.fifth mill tax each year to raise funds for paying their
share of constructing the inland route. Up to this year, this
small tax has raised a total of $1,515, 357, of which $760, 980
has been spent in acquiring rights.of-way and on necessary sur-
veys.
This leaves $797. 490 available for additional rights-of-way
now under negotiation. The Federal government is to pay the


actual costs of dredging and
constructing the waterway,

with the exception of erecting

sota County.
To keep the ball rolling to-
ward immediate action on get-
ting the waterway constructed,
the WCIND has agreed to set
up a permanent office in the
Sarasota-Bradenton area, man-
aged by a full-time director
whose major task would be to
co-ordinate all efforts in be-
half of the waterway under the
policies adopted by the WCIND.
The completion of the wa-
terway is of particular impor-
tance to Sarasota and Manatee
Counties, since they are now
cut off completely from the
benefits of intracoastal travel.
Pleasure craft or other vessels
headed for this area now must
risk the uncertainty of gulf
weather.
The Army Engineers have
completed virtually all the
preliminary surveys and engi-
neering data required for the
waterway and have reported
they are ready to proceedwith
the actual construction of the
Caloosahatchee--Anclote sec-
tion as soon as Congress pro-
vides the $1, 400, 000 needed.

Casino, itwon't be transformed
into a smoke-stacked replica
of a sea-going vessel.
The City Planning Boardlast
week overruled Sal Saprito's
proposal to redecorate the Ca-
sino along the lines of a ship,
but did not rule out entirely a
nautical theme if Saprito is
successful in negotiating a lease
from the city for private opera-
tion of the casino and its vari-
ous facilities.
The planners looked favor-
ably upon Saprito's proposal to
install a glass roof over the
swimming pool, to convertthe
cabanas along the eastern side
of the pool into resort shops,
and to move the bathers' grill
from its present location to a
site at the northwest corner of
the casino.
After inspecting the casino
with Saprito last week, the
planners took the proposal un-
der advisement, instructing
City Planning Director Robert
W. Pavitt to draw up a sum-
mary of the board's ideas for
further consideration at its
next meeting.
The board will pass its rec-
ommendations on to the city
commission, which has final
authority over operation of the
city's best known resort facil-
ity on Lido Beach.

To Stop Erosion
Seaward groins alone, of
whatever kind, will not stop
erosion. But seaward groins
connected by a parallel groin
forming cribs will stop erosion,
in any weather. The parallel
groins cut the bottom off the
waves and hold the sand and
shell and become completely
covered in normal weather.
Parallel groin cribs are a new
approach to erosion and they
work.

ANNA MARIA A 350
pound Blue shark was hauled
in at the Rod & Reel Pier in
Anna Maria by an 85 pound
fisherman during the Memor-
ial Day week end, by young
W. W. Chaplin Jr., 15 year
old son of the WTRL news-
caster, who although he re-
sides in Bayshore Gardens,
spends his weekends at the
Rod & Reel Pier under the
watchful eye of Bob Benoit.
He's landed some near record
weight fish ever since the
start of that pleasant arrange-
ment.
The 7 foot shark was caught
on 1200 lb. test nylon line,
with two feet of chain and
shark hook with a 3 lb. Lady-
fish as bait. After the shark
hit the bait, young Chaplin
was helped by Benoit and
others on the pier, and after
about 15 minutes hauled him

SARASOTA COUNTY Now
in its 4th week, the 29th In-

Hadden's 155-pounder land-

several adults and small

ANNA MARIA According
to "The Roser Messenger"
many parents are availing
themselves of the opportunity
to participate in a Parents
Discussion Group which meets
during the Sunday School
Hour. It is felt, they say, that
many others will likewise
benefit from the discussions,
and all are invited to join in
the Pastor's study each Sunday
at 10:00 a.m.

Roser Playground
ANNA MARIA Something
new has been added to the
facilities of the Roser Memor-
ial Community Church in An-
na Maria. The Senior Youth
Fellowship has undertaken the
project of providing a play-
ground for the younger child-
ren.
It is felt that an addition
such as this will be of great
assistance in caring for the
Nursery and Kindergarten
children during the church wor-
ship services, Sunday School,
Vacation Church school and
other activities.
"The Playground is no little
project," they say! "It will re-
quire the assistance of the
members. Used playground
equipment which is repairable
is needed. Persons who can
assist in the planning and
erecting of the playground are
also needed. Please contact
the church office if you can
help in any way."

KEY GOVERNMENT

H.B. Building Inspector
HOLMES BEACH It was
announced at the meeting of
the Holmes Beach Board of
Aldermen, that George Ander-
son, Building Inspector had
resigned as of June 1, and
that Deputy Inspector Howard
Scott had been appointed to
the post.

Rewrite Building Manual
HOLMES BEACH The
Holmes Beach Building Man-
ual is being revised and has
been rewritten by Alderman
James Marshall. The main
changes were recited at the
last Holmes Beach meeting,
and a special meeting called
for Tuesday, June 16 to which
will be invited all of the lic-
ensed Holmes Beach builders
and contractors, together with
anyone else who may be in-
terested in the new regulations.
It was brought out, that
there would be a general
tightening up on anyone in the
building trades doing work in
Holmes Beach. Mr. Marshall
said "they will have to hold a
valid Florida State License,


and a Manatee County License
or at least a license from a
county which has a reciproca-
ting agreement with Manatee
County, with, of course, an
occupational license inHolmes
Beach."
After acceptance, copies of
the new revised manual will
be available for inspection.


Traffic Ordinance
HOLMES BEACH Patterned
after Chapter 186 of the Flor-
ida Statutes 1957, the "model
traffic ordinance," Holmes
Beach will, after it's next
meeting undoubtedly have a
copy of it as their own, with
only a few minor changes to
fit local conditions.
Prepared by the City Attorn-
ey it presents schedules deal-
ing with maximum speeds in
various sections of the Town,
Stop Streets, Prohibited Park-
ing areas and penalties. Com-
plete details will be made
known immediately after its
adoption.
Mayor Scott stated that one
of the Deputy Sheriffs who had
assisted in the preparation of
the local phase of the ordin-
ance wanted to know whether


"the council will back us up
if we issue a summons to or
bring in some of your promin-
ent people?" Mayor Scott as-
sured them that the Council
would back them up.

Summer Painters and Crafts
men The First Exhibit in the
Fall November 8 will be
Members' Summer Works. You
know you can't resist painting
those bewitching scenes that
intrigued you to vacation in
just that spot--the mountains,
the sea, the old farm build-
ings, the local character and
more. Also craft artists get
those clever hands working.
And are we interested! The
openings of all exhibits will
be on Sundays with the usual
friendly Teas. Please have
your treasures at the Art Center
Friday, November 6 by 5 p. m.
for this First Exhibit.
Photography Show -planned
for December. Here's an ex-
cuse to pick your subject, read
your meter, set your camera
and start clicking.
The Silent Auction suggest
ed by our Director, has been
set up in the Gallery by Flor-
ence Mead, Exhibit Chairman,
and her committee. This con-
sists of paintings now on ex-
hibit there consigned or dona-
ted by various artists with pri.
ces marked on them. However,
these artists are willing to con.
sider a lower price so a confid.
ential bid can be written and
put in the locked box in the
Gallery. Our Director will
present the bids to the artists
for acceptance or rejection.
No one besides the bidder,
the Director and the artist will
know the amount bid. We hope
to always have paintings on
hand to sell and in this way
establish a permanent Sales


Gallery. Here is your chance
to show and sell some of your
fine creations. Surely youwant
to donate or consign in the
Silent Auction. Just contact
Commander Eldon Gleaves,
phone FUlton 8-3273, orwrite
him 602 Jessmyth Drive,Long-
boat Key, Fla.
Craft Exhibit Chairman,
Hazel Ridyard who can so
ably plan and arrange craft
exhibits.
Class Co-ordinator some-
thing new this year. Lora
Whitney has consented to take
this on, which means working
with the teachers on policies,
use of classrooms, instruction,
exhibits and in any other way
we can be helpful to them.
Players have" generously
offered to pay for the installa-
tion of doors on both sides of
the stage to replace our piti-
ful looking curtains. We do
thank you for this worthy pro-
ject.

BEACH GULF & BAY

Other Side Of Nuisance
The $1 million sanitary sew-
ers system now under installa-
tion on Lido and St. Armands
Keys, as often happens in pub-
lic works projects, is producing
its portion of headaches forth
residents of the keys with a
by-product of noise and nuis-
ance.
Several residents of the area'
have complained about the
noise from 24-hour pumping
operations, about torn-up and
impassable streets, and about


the noxious odor of sulphur
fumes from the pumping and
dredging operations.
While the work now going
on on Lido and St. Armands is
being done by the private con-
tracting firm of Higgins Inc.,
under sub-contract from Sulli-
van, Long & Hagerty, City
Manager Kenneth Thompson
is familiar with the situation,
having heard some of the com-
plaints himself, no doubt.
The noxious sulphur fumes
that are blamed for discolor-
ing the paint on homes and
buildings, and for causing sil-
verware to turn black, are due
to the peculiar soil condition

on the keys, Thompson ex-
plained. The mangrove roots
when uncovered in the digging
and dredging processes produce
the fumes in abnormal amounts
the city manager said, and
nothing has been developed to
prevent this.
He said most of the discolor-
ation to paint will wash off and
that any such sulphur fumes
damage incurred by house-
holders should be submitted to
the contractor in the form of
claims, after the work is fin-
ished, since the contractors
are insured against such claims.
The target date for complet-
ing the job is next December
15.
Regarding the noise, the


city manager said the sewer
contractor uses the most mod-
ern type of equipment and it
was unlikely little could be
done to abate the noise before
the job was finished.
Tor-up streets are one of
the penalties of progress, as
residents of other neighbor-
hoods, where paving, drain-
age, and sewers projects have
been undertaken, are quick to
testify.

their will they are out to des-
troy him or make employment
.for him unbearable.
When I first came to Sarasota
all you needed to be called an
electrician were a pair of
pliers and a screw driver, and
to be a plumber all you need-
ed was a monkey wrench and
a bold front and you were in
business. No inspection was
necessary in either electrical
work or plumbing. Today we
have a rigid building, elec-
trical and plumbing code
which is rigidly enforced,
(thanks to the efforts of Mr.
Brumbaugh) and the depart-
ment is being run self sustain-
ing without costing the county
a# single cent.
When zoning became effec-
tive throughout the county he
was selected by the County
Commissioners as zoning dir-
ector. Naturally, in enforcing
that law he became a target
for those who are opposed to
any zoning. But he went about
his business of enforcing the
law fairly and impartially. I
can honestly say that but for
his efficient help in enforcing
the zoning law, we probably
would not now have any effec-
tive law at all.
Of course, it may be argued
that he took the job with the
knowledge that it was going to
be "rough sledding' but he re-
mained loyal to the people of
Sarasota County until he felt
that because of improper sup-
port it was not worth the price,
and secured employment in


private business, which is but
saying in other words that pol-
itical pressure interfered with
his proper functioning of law
enforcement.
I know that wherever he is
going he can be depended
upon to render good and faith-
ful service. It has been our
great pleasure to have known
and worked with him and we
will miss him. It might even
be said that even those who
did not cooperate with him
will be forced to admit that
he has been a hard worker who
has done an outstanding job.

Siesta's State's Attorney
The question among young
lawyers in the Sarasota area
today was "Who will be tap-
ped to succeed William H.
Stockham of Siesta Key as
assistant state's attorney for
Sarasota County?"
Gov. LeRoy Collins and
State's Attorney W. Mack
Smiley of Bradenton are sur-
veying the field of prospects
in their search for a replace-
ment for Stockham, whose
four-year term ends June 30.
The young Siesta Key lawyer
notified the governor he would
not be a candidate for re-
appointment due to the pres-
sure of his private practice.
Stockham is now the senior
partner in the law firm of
Stockham, Robinson and Har-
rison, and said he had to
choose between continuing in
office or neglecting his pri-
vate practice.
"In the past four years the
duties of assistant state's at-
torney have grown into a full.
time job," Stockham explain-
ed, "yet does not pay enough
to provide a living for a man
with a family and a mortgage."

"I felt I had done my duty
in public service during the
four-year term and owed it
to my family and associates
to devote more time to my
own practice," Stockham ex-
plained. "I have enjoyed the
work, I have gained added
experience, and now I be-
lieve some other young law-
yer should have the same op-
portunity. "
Stockham took the state's
attorney's post seriously and
worked at it diligently, even
attending a special prosecutor's
course at Northwestern Univer-
sity at his own expense. He
prepared for law at the Univer-
sity of Wisconsin and the Uni-
versity of Miami.
He is married and has two
children.

Unknown Car Burns
The north end of Casey Key
was the scene of a bad accident
Friday night as a small foreign-
made car rolled over a bank
and caught fire.
The Nokomis Fire Depart-
ment answered the call and re-
ported that the car's gas tank
had exploded and was a total
loss by the time the truck ar-
rived on the scene.
The owner of the car was un-
known but the two occupants
were found on the bank beside
the burning car... unhurt.

Auto Crash Damages
Listed $300
A collision between cars
driven by Kenneth W. Farnham
of 628 Tremont Street, Siesta
Key and Lex B. Caldwell of
Whippoorwill Drive occurred at
Siesta Drive and Higel Avenue
last week.
There was an estimated
damage of $300 to Farnham's
car and no damage listed for
the Caldwell automobile.
No injuries were reported
and no arrests were made, ac-
cording to the police.
