LETTER FROM THE EDITOR
Long Live!
Good luck to Steve Kimball who has taken over the Anna
Maria Islander. We are confident he will be dedicated to the
welfare of the community. The Islander has a large and de-
voted following built by many years of colorful and interesting
writing by a man who literally lived Anna Maria twenty-four
hours a day, and undoubtedly still does.
SWe know the gruelling punishment a small publication can
give a publisher and Harry Varley possibly gave the job too
many of his years for his own good. This is undoubtedly appre-
ciated even by those who felt the pricks of his always readable
and sometimes irascible pen.
We note that Mr. Kimball tagged us in an editorial as a poor
man's Time magazine. That seems to describe it accurately
enough.
Actually Time wasn't the first to use a personality on the
cover, or a red border, or classified news. They were the first
to use all three. We are not the second. The size is the same
as business letterheads and used by about 2,200 other publica-
tions in this country, many of them much older than Time.
So we have imitated Time. Limited originality prevented us
inventing a more readable and useful format.
Writing in the May issue of American Press, one of the pub-
lishers' journals we take, an expert named Thorne Lane gave
the following advice to weekly newspapers that compete intheir
territory with metropolitan dailies.
"I suggest a magazine format, or style of publication, rather
than a newspaper format. I would suggest that you become
thoroughly familiar with the style and format of Time and
Newsweek and apply it to your publication. "
We compete on the keys with six metropolitan dailies and
five weeklies, so we felt pretty encouraged by Mr. Lane be-
cause we had started the poor man's Time thing with our issue
of April 14. Frank Owen, ex-managing editor of the Bradenton
Herald, designed the cover, and we writhed because we could-
n't afford color. Then in May a breezy Sarasota advertising
agent called James Van Arsdale, ex-publisher and international
polo player, increased our advertising enough in two days to
meet the heavy expense of color on enameled paper. It was
like growing your first mustache.
As for the poor man's part of it, our readership undoubtedly
is a higher income group than Time. So perhaps this more so-
phisticated format is more suitable for us than our previous
amateur attempt to look like a miniature Tampa Tribune. We
wish we could afford better paper and printing. Perhaps we will
some day.
Now right here we want to call attention to the following.
Time hasn't got a cat on the payroll and it shows it. And Time
didn't get the Dipso Pen ad account and we did. So let non-
subscriber Kimball beware of inferences, innuendoes, insinua-
tions that are incomplete, unfactual, true.
As for The Islander it is better printed on better paper. It is
standard weekly tabloid size and it follows the time -tested for-
mat of most tabloid weeklies, and that is good. We just happen
to like news magazine style better.
We welcome competition with the Islander and with the
Beachcomber. Everyone benefits by competition, including
publications. There are seven of them carrying Island news.
That would seem to be enough for a while. We doubt if there
is another community of 4,000 population with such broad news
service. It is also good for business on the Island. So more
power to all seven. It means more power to the community.
That is why we publish. More power to the Keys.
Long live The Islander! It is interesting, valuable, needed.
WE PICKED MAX WOODLAND as Cover Man this issue for many
reasons. He is 35 and coming. Mr. A. B. Edwards on the previous
cover is 85 and staying. It is an interesting contrast. Max came to
Sarasota to make a career, to raise a family, and live a full and
rounded life. He had opportunities to go up fast, get rich fast, else -
where. As a trained business analyst with wide experience in work -
ing and living inAustralia, England, Bermuda, Canada, New York
andTexas, he carefully and deliberately singled out this commun-
ity as the place to spend his productive years. Also he lives in Mana-
tee County and drives 20 miles to work in Sarasota every day. He is
a symbol of the knitting of the two counties, economically and
culturally. He is a man of the keys and a man of both counties. This
is why he is Cover Man.

KEY LOOK-OUT, August 20, 1959,,


Prioect Schenectady

-Key Look-out:
The last of your 5 separate
mailings of the July 23rd
Look-out came today. I
thought you might like to
know the dates of their arrival:!
1 -July 30th
2 -August 5th
3 -August 7th
4 -August 7th
5 -August 12th
You probably know when
these were mailed from your
office in this project trial.
As you will note they all have
come through, with the last
one today (August 12th) being
17 days from publication date.g
'Evidently the post office is
not losing them now as they
did and we hope this means
the regular issues now will
.come through on time.
Incidentally the one that
came on August 5th was the
one that had the regular name
plate on it; the others were
evidently all the special
mailings as they had a green
label on each of them.
We appreciate all your
extra investigation of this
matter, and we trust this is
the last time we have to
write you regarding missing
issues.
We very much appreciate
receiving the Key Look-out
and think it is an excellent
publication, too good to be
lost.
Dr. A. W. Bailey
Schenectady, N.Y.
Extra copies were mailed
on seven consecutive days,
starting July 23. Only two
copies failed to arrive. The
first special mailing arrived
six days before the copy that
went with our regular out-of-
town bulk mailing. It would
appear that Subscriber Bailey
will receive his regular copy
about 13 days after date of
issue. This is much better
than most out-of-town sub-
scribers report. The current
issue is being sent him by
airmail, airmail parcel post,
and Railway Express. Studies!
-will be made on relative
elapsed time and a report
published. -Ed.


Bailey Case
Key Look-out:
Realizing the serious business,
of the day must be reported I
have one thing to say. ...
Don't you dare get Dr.


,Bailey straightened out, I loveT
it! Snooks

S.M. Sorry to disappoint you.
The Sarasota Post Office is
opening a Schenectady branch.
-Ed.


For Keeps
'Key Look-out:
Am enclosing check for one
dollar for one year's subscript-
ion to the Key Look-out which
please send to Stanley Lowe,
156 Faubel St., Sarasota.
If it is possible, I would ap-
preciate very much if you
could start this subscription
with the Aug. 6 issue which I
have just received and find
too interesting to give away.
I would like to congratulate
you on your fine publication
which seems to improve with
each issue recently.
Wishing you continued suc-
cess.

Love It
Key Look-out:
I enclose check for our sub -
scription. We enjoy your news-
paper very much. We bought
a home in Anna Maria in May,
1958 and are here to stay. We
love it here and find Key
Look-out has much interesting
news for us.

Key Look-out:
We have just received the
last fourissues of Key Look-out
after its absence since our
April departure from Longboat
Key. We do not know what
went wrong with your mailing
list, butwe are glad once again
to be kept informed of the Key
events.
Of course we were pleasantly
surprisedbythe new format and
the professional look. We wish
you every success.

ARE YOU DEFICIENT IN COCKTAIL SHOWMANSHIP?

DO NEOPHYTE LITERATI
AND INTELLIGENZIA EMBARRASS YOU?

DO YOU FEEL LIKE A FOOL IN THE PRESENCE OF
OVER -EXTROVERTED BOOKWORMS?

THE ULTERIOR CONVERSATIONAL INSTITUTE offers you
DR. BRAIGNWATE'S 25-foot shelf of little known quotations
from the lesser philosophers and minor poets including 12
volume supplement on the impenetrability of equivocation
land tautology as applied to the Fine Arts, with additional re-
volving KWIK-KUFF reference file. It all fits neatly in the
Trunk of your car.

IFROM NOW ON you can feel at home at any party. As you
enter the room, slip quietly from group to group making care-
'ful notes of the subject most under discussion. Then sneak out
to your car and read the condensed background material at the
beginning of the relevant chapter.

NOW SLIP ON THE SLOTTED OUTER CUFF. Place the printed
.tabs with names, phrases and quotations on the inner revolving
,cuff and slide under outer cuff. Attach gear to the winding
!stem of your wrist watch. As you turn the stem the tabs will
.appear in turn through the slot in the outer cuff. The tabs are
,so recessed that only you can see them.

YOU CAN NOW RACE back to the crowd, first having told
your wife to keep a close eye on you from across the room.
Listen for a moinent while thoughtfully winding your watch as
though something pressing were on your mind. When the ap-
propriate information appears in the slot you are ready. Clear
you throat and say, for example, "All very interesting, of
course, but what about the third canto of Purovino's Matrix
over Provolone?" Then raise your glass for a quick glance at
the quotation. After quoting, lower your lids, arch your brows
and gaze thoughtfully into your cocktail.

AT THIS POINT, there will probably be a hasty retreat from
the subject at hand and you will be free to circulate unassailed
for the rest of the evening by merely nodding and grunting dis-
agreeably whenever you are spoken to.

IF ON THE OTHER HAND someone immediately takes issue
with you and you cannot twirl your cuff quickly enough, then
signal your wife who will rush over to tell you you are wanted
on the phone. Now return to your car and sit out the evening
practicing cuffmanship.

AFTER A FEW EVENINGS you will be sufficiently fast on the
cuff to outquote the best of them.

PLACE YOUR ORDER NOW and stop skulking in the kitchen
with your friends who enjoy ordinary conversation.

Blank Check
August 9, 1959
Dear Mr. Dipso:
Please send me one of your
pens. I'm enclosing a check
written with my old pen, and
see what the result of that is!
(That's just an old Rorschach
test up in the corer. )
I particularly admired your
design with its faintly biologi-
cal overtones. It's good to see
someone trying to get away
from the over-mechanization
of our era. I'm all for going
back to the tools of our ances-
tors. My new Italian typewrit-
er has been equipped with cu-
neiform script but I haven't
been able to locate any clay
tablets that will wrap around
the roll. I had to discard my
IBM for rudeness. I can't tol-
erate a machine that stops to
correct my grammar and spell-
ing. And in such a nasty tone
of voice, too.
Very truly yours,
(Mrs.) Saran Wrapt Igo
Igowild
Central Lake, Mich.

Anna Maria Subscriber Igo
misread the advertisement.
Price quoted was for dozen
Dipso eggs, not for adult pens.
The handy home incubator is
$1,295. Unexpected demand
has exhausted our egg supply.
However, we can furnish one
or more adult Queen Dipsos.
Special laying mash is avail-
able to force production before
Christmas and after weddings.
We have filled in the blank
check with Dipso Model ESP
with Remote Control Facsimile
Signature Attachment. This
will cover queen, nests, incu-
bator, brooder, milkingpails,
leash and illustrated booklet,
"Yak Butter on Papyrus Do

stant Attention?"

Beach Erosion

Key Look-out:
In recent months I have
noticed many articles in the
newspapers on the erosion of
our beaches. Knowing my
father had made a hobby of
erosion over many years I
asked him how he became
interested.
He was at Virginia Beach in
February of 1926 during an
historic storm that destroyed
the water front for many
miles. As soon as it was pos-
sible he went down on the
beach to see the damage and
noticed that freak conditions
in several places caused tur-
bulance of the water that had
helped protect the bank. This
turbulence was just happen-
stance but it started the thought
of controlled turbulence for
the protection of beaches.
The first development was
Sand Traps but these alone
were just improved groins,
they built up the beach and
heldthe sand during normal
weather. Then came the prob-
lem of trapping and holding
the sand during stormy weather.
By connecting the seaward
groins to a retaining wall and
parallel groins, forming a
huge crib, this was done. The
parallel groin caused turbul-
ance enough to make the sand
so heavy it would not flow out
with the backwash and was
retained-in the huge crib.
This construction consisting
of three parts, retaining wall,
seaward and parallel groins
known as Erosion Control
Apparatus uses the elements,
making them helpful instead
of destructive.
Doesn't this make good
sense in place of pumping
sand on the beaches to be
washed out with the next
storm or dumping huge rocks
spoiling the use of the beaches
or just sitting back waiting to
see what will happen with the
next storm.
Our beaches are a necessity
to the good life of our City.

Commissioners Challenged
BRADENTON The voice
of the people has been heard:
The bulkhead line set by the
Manatee County Commission-
ers will not go through with-
out a comprehensive exam-
ination by the Internal Im-
provement Fund Board. Mr.
Van H. Ferguson, director of
the I.I. Board, said that be-
cause of the strong public
opinion against the line set
by the Commissioners a study
will be made to determine
which is the better of the two,
the line set by the Commis-
sioners or the line submitted
by the Planning and Zoning
Committee.

When the Commissioners
set the controversial line there
was an almost immediate dis-
approval by the people in
Manatee County and surround-
ing areas. Since then public
sentiment has grown stronger
and stronger against the line
which extends 1,200 feet into
the bay in places and would
swallow up 1,400 acres of bay
area. Mrs. H. D. K. Stanford
united nine civic organizations
totaling 1,683 members in an
attempt to block the line.
Since then multitudes of
people have written letters
and telegrams to Tallahassee
in protest against the line.

There has been talk of an
injunction against the line if
necessary. One thing is sure -
- many residents do not want
any part of the proposed line
and are ready to do everything
within their means to halt it
to protect the bay. The letters
are spontaneous and emphat-
ic and show definite indica-
tions of a cross sample of the
citizens of Manatee County
rather than being a series of
form letters to which you
merely sign your name and
mail it in.

If this public spirit is main-
tained the people of Manatee
County will win in their fight
to keep what is rightly theirs.


Shooting The Breeze
The other evening there
were several nice people sit-
ting around just "shooting the


breeze." Everybody in the par-
ty was a transplanted Norther-
ner, all were men of means,
retired, all men experienced
in civic, fraternal and business
organizations, all intelligent,
willing and wanting to do their
share in making their commun-
ity a better place to live.
I took notes and here is just
about what some of them said.
"This'll sound funny coming
from me after I've just moved
into my new home (it cost him
over $30,000) but I'm getting
so damn fed up with this place
and all the 'little people' here
that I don't think it would take
much to make me put my
place up for sale and move
over to the east coast."
"The so and so club is hav-
ing a devil of a time getting
someone to run for president.
Nobody wants to take it.
Claims there's too much ag-
gravation, high bloodpressure
and lack of support or appre-
ciation. I don't know what
they're going to do."
"Boy,talk about the old
'Tamany Hall' in New York!
This town's government could
have taught them lessons."
"I wouldn't run for office in
this town even if it paid a sal-
ary (which it doesn't). The
'big boys' just want to be sure
that a bunch of'rubber stamps'
get elected every year or two,
just so long as they can main-

And so it went! I'm wonder-
ing whether there isn't some -
thing rather pathetic in the
fact that these fine people
come down here ready and
willing to pitch in, only to
have every suggestion or at-
tempted act thwarted!
One fine organization in our
community, needed over one
year to get organized simply
because they couldn't find
anyone who'd agree to run for
president! Finally an able man
was found. A professional man.
He served one year, then re-
fused under any circumstances
to follow through. Another
able man was finally persuaded
(against my better judgmerE) to
serve, and he did. He has already
served notice that nothing -- but
nothing will induce him to serve
again or to remain as an officer!
"What do I need it for?" he asks.
I'm just wondering whether any-
one else has found this situation
to be prevalent, and whether
there's any solution?

COVE STORY
:Max Woodlaid
It's a long way from Aus-
tralia to Anna Maria Island,
especially if you follow the
route taken by Max Woodland.
Born in Sydney 35 years ago,
he is descended from early
settlers of the 18th century.
;Max says some of them were
members of the colonies of
prisoners sent over to clear
English jails and Australian
land, none of whom were
dangerous criminals. English
jails were jammed withpeople
who couldn't pay their debts
as they couldn't make money
in jail. They just remained
indefinitely; even the theft of
a loaf of bread could mean
life imprisonment.
Max's father was an engi-
neer. Before that they were
frontieamen, and when he


graduated from high school at
15 he felt the call and went
to the plains as a drover (a
cowboy, except it's sheep).
Like the cattle drives of Texas
years ago, 4bcks of 5,000 to
10,000 sheep were driven
hundreds of miles to the rail-
road. There were riders scout-
ing ahead for trails, and out-
riders, and covered wagons,
.each with two tiers of bunks
with food and gear underneath
and cages for 12 sheep dogs
on the sides and bottom.
Max had ridden 1500 miles
to reach the ranches of his rel
natives and for two years he
rode the wild country of New
ISouth Wales. The sheep dogs
did the herding and the men
rode guard for marauders and
!kept a lookout for dangerous
,terrain. Two dogs were releas-
ed from each wagon daily
while the rest rode in their
cages.

MAX WOODLAND (center), bomber pilot at


English base. He flew 33 runs over Germany.


Kangeroos were a big prob-
lem to the ranchers. Although
protected by law, they could
be killed within limits. A
landowner could bag 500 a
year for each 60,000 acres of
his land. Max has many stor-
ies of kangaroo hunts. They
ma at 40 to 45 miles an hour.
They are hunted with dogs,
large fast kangaroo hounds and
Jox terriers. When a flock was
spotted things really started to
happen. To head them off
from cover the men would
drive across the plain as fast
as 80 miles an hour. As they
approached a flock of kanga-
roos, the terriers would be
allowed to jump out at 50
miles an hour. Max says they
never were injured. He says
a large buck kangaroo is hard
to kill. He has seen them shot
between the eyes, get up and,
with a terrier locked on his
throat, take off at full speed.
When the mother kangaroo has
to escape, she throws the Joey,
as they are called, from her
pouch and leaves him. Many
'Joeys were caught and kept as
family pets.


When Max was 17 years and
3 months he enlisted in the
Royal Australian Air Force
for training. That was 1941.
The next year he was sent to
Canada for training as a
bomber pilot. Here he met
Marguerite, and they were
married in 1943. Then he was
shipped to England, where he
made 33 bombing flights over
Germany, all at night. In the
dark he engaged in almost
fatal combat with a British
mosquito bomber. Again he
had two engines shot out, the
rear gunner and engineer
killed and the rest of his crew
all wounded. Max got them
,back to England in spite of
three broken vertebrae in his
own spine.
After the war Max and
Marguerite returned to Aus-
tralia where he studied engi-
neering at the University of
Sydney for a year. Then they
decided on Canada, her own
homeland, They sailed from
Sydney bound for Vancouver.
Christopher, their oldest son,

reproductive complications.
Two weeks out she was oper-
ated on, stretched out on the
Captain's table in the dining
saloon. The ship's doctor was
a brain surgeon. Max had
learned from the Captain that
the doctor expected her to die
during surgery. This didn't
give him too much confidence
in the situation.

The operation began at 9
a. m. They were exactly on
the equator. There was no air
conditioning and the surgeon's
only assistant was a desk re -
ceptionist on vacation from a
doctor's office. At 9:05 a.m.
the surgeon's trousers dropped
to the floor. Max says this


didn't immediately restore his
confidence. For three and a
half hours the doctor operated
while handling the anaesthetic
himself, with pants just cover-
ing his shoes. When it was
over the doctor told the cap-
tain the only hope was to
make a dash for Honolulu
which was two days off their
course.
After two weeks in Queen's
Hospital in Honolulu, they
flew to Canada to visit her
family while she recuperated
and gave birth to Christopher.
Max went to work for five
years in St. Johns with one of
the world's largest accounting
firms, at the same time com-
pleting a five year course in
business administration and
Accounting at Queen's Univer-
sirt. Then he went to Bermuda
as an accountant for a year
and a half, after which, he
was employed as auditor by
Radio Corporation Of Amer-
ica in New York and travelled
to branches in many parts of
the country.
In 1953 he accepted the
position of Comptroller of a
large corporation in Texas
operating an extensive chain
of stores.
Max had been bitten by the
Florida Bug long before com-
ing to the U. S. and the more
he heard the more he liked
the idea of living in Florida.
After two years in Texas and
considerable study of the
Florida situation, he picked
Sarasota and ended his trip
on Longboat Key with his
family in a trailer he had
bought for business travel
some time before. This was
May 1955. He wanted to stay
a few nights in one of the
Longboat Trailer parks, but
they didn't take "transients."

HAPPYIAND August 3, smouldering at 7:30 a.m. Destruction
of the large restaurant was complete. (G. Huggins)


FIRE

THE HAPPYIAND STORY

SIESTA KEY -The Happy.
land story is not a story of a
bar and restaurant that burned
and was rebuilt. It is a story
of people and their feelings
of respect, affection and
loyalty to their friends and
neighbors. It was this warm
fervor, a nostalgic glimpse of
the pioneer days, that caused
the new Happyland to rise
from ashes that were still hot.
At one o'clock in the
morning on August 4th the
Happyland caught fire and by
sunup was burned to the
ground. This story begins
where most fire stories end,
with the glowing embers.
At seven that morning Bill
Wood, the owner, was already
planning the reconstruction of
his flame gutted business, the
largest in the area, seating
275 with 4,608 square feet of
floor space. The area was
crowded with the people who
usually flock to witness a
disaster and scattered amongst
them were Bill's friends. The
newsmongers Soon left when
they thought they had the
whole story of the fire but
they were ever so wrong, for


the real story was just begin-
ning.
The ones who stayed a-
round, Bill's friends, were
waiting. And when materials
for reconstruction began to
arrive they volunteered to
help put Bill back in business.
One of these men was Roland
Martel who runs the Midnight
Pass Fishing Camp just down
the road from Bill's place and
is his closest competitor. Ro-
land locked up his place of
business and grabbed a ham-
mer.

There are two things to re-
member which are very im-
portant about this story. One
is the fantastic recovery of
the Happyland which burned
to the ground one night and
was back in business the next
afternoon in a permanent
structure and the other is the
people who did it.
As was said before, Bill was
planning to rebuild at seven
in the morning the same day
as the fire. By nine a con-
crete slab was finished as the
floor for the new bar. At ten
a temporary bar and refresh-
ment stand was in operation
under the trees, a telephone
was connected up in a tree
and lumber was arriving.
When the lumber arrived Bill


and his friends labored swiftly
and tirelessly to reopen the
same day they were burned
out. At one thirty the first
new wall was raised into place
and by five thirty only the
finishing touches remained.
Bill was back in business.
By noon the next day hot
foods were being served. Bill
expects to have the entire
restaurant rebuilt in sixty days.
The ardent warmhearted
willingness to aid Bill in his
time of need exemplifies the
friendliness of the people of
Siesta Key, something to be
truly proud of. GH

HISTORY

A.B. Edwards
(Second in a series on the life
and times of A. B. Edwards of
Siesta Key.)

A Yankee shell during the
Civil War played a vital role
in the destiny ofA. B. Edwards,
Siesta Key's "first citizen" and
elder statesman of Sarasota
County.
In 1864, John L. Edwards, a
Confederate soldier from Jeff-
erson County, Florida, wasser-
iously wounded in a South Car-
olina engagement and left be-
hind on the battlefield, which
happened to have been on the
plantation of William Oden
Ange, a well-to-do South Car-,
olina farmer.
After the smoke of rifles and
cannon had floated evanescent-
ly into the distant hills, the
South Carolina farmer strode
out into his broad fields to sur-
vey the havoc that war had
wrought to his homeland. He
stumbled upon the body of a
wounded soldier, whose gray
uniform was caked with blood,
but in whom a spark of life
still glowed.
The farmer ran back to his
home for help and returned to
carry the wounded man back to
the farm house. For weeks,
young John L. Edwards hovered
between life and death, but the
tender care of the farmer, his
wife, and family of four daugh-
ters and two sons nursed the
soldier through every crisis --
and John L. Edwards refused to
die.
At war's end, he was still a

beings, and human beings must
have a water supply, Edwards
maneuvered his sloop shore-
ward toward the light as far as
he felt would be safe in the
darkness, hove to, and cast off
his anchor. He decided he
would wait until morning to
seek water, rather than risk
running aground in the dark-
ness.
Accustomed to being alone
during the previous two years,
Edwards wrapped a sail around
him as a blanket and was soon
fast asleep, lulled by the gen-
tle lapping of the waves
against the hull of his sloop.
At daybreak, Edwards roused
himself, gazed about the
strange and beautiful new sur-
roundings, and was astonished
to see another sailboat, larger
than his own, anchored not
;far off his bow.
SEdwards shouted: "Halloo-
0-o".
In a moment, a man's head
jutted out of the cabin of the
neighboring cruiser, and ans-
wered the early morning salu-
tation:
"Hallo-o-o yourself."
SAfter this exchange of greet-
ings, the stranger, who had a
dinghy trailing aft, rowed over
to call on young Edwards, and
after introducing himself as
John A. Gilfallon of Denver,
Colorado, invited the young
stranger to return to his cruiser
for a spot of coffee and a bite
of breakfast.
This chance greeting altered
not only the courses of the two
cruisers, but the lives of the
two men, and made certain
that Arthur Britton Edwards was
to be born on the shores of Sar-
asota Bay.
During breakfast, the two
men learned that they both had
put into Sarasota Bay the eve-
ning before for the same reason,

Gilfallon, a Denver mining en-

the Keys. It so happened nei-

tination.
The light that had served as
a beacon in the evening dark-
ness could not be seen in the
morning light, but Edwards was
to learn later that the light had
shone from the homestead of
Bill Whitaker, the first white
settler in the Sarasota area,
who had staked a claim along
Whitaker Bayou in 1842.
Edwards and Gilfallon, re-
freshed by coffee and bacon
and each glad to have someone
to talk to, decided to join
forces in seeking a fresh water
supply.
They cruised up the eastern
shore of the bay a distance un-
til they saw a small rivulet of
water trickling into the bay at
what is now the Uplands. They
went ashore and followed the
tiny stream through the palm-
ettos, underbrush and woodland
for about 250 feet until they
came to a small pool, fed by a
spring. They cleared the weeds
and twigs from the pool and af-
ter the water had cleared, they
replenished their supply.

Having pitched camp in the
Lockwood Ridge area about one
and one-half miles from Sara-
sota Bay, near what is now the
County Line and Lockwood
Ridge Road, the Ange men set
out to try to find Edwards.
They hiked westward toward
the bay, and reaching the shore
they started searching for the
camp that Edwards had so vivid-
ly described.
The reunion was a happy one
when the Anges stumbled upon
Edwards in his garden that late
fall afternoon.
Edwards joined them on their
return to their camp, an ideal
site in a nice stand of'high
timber, with wild honey and
game in abundance.
And there John L. Edwards
and Mellie Frances Ange, one
of the farmer's four daughters,
fell in love. Mellie had been
a young girl when John had last
seen her five years before, but
now she had matured into a
handsome young woman and
their marriage was inevitable--
in the spring of 1871.
John took his bride to his
cabin on the bay, and there,
early in 1872, the first of their
six children was born, a daugh-
ter named Josephine.
.Two years later, on October
2, 1874, Arthur Britton Ed-

and that is how a Yankee shell
played such an important part
in the destiny of Sarasota's

One Down And One To Go
After continuous and pers-
evering efforts on the part of
many individuals and organ-
izations who recognized the
need for the West Coast In-
land Waterway, the first big
victory after years of frustra
tion is now assured.
For the first time funds for
actual construction have been
approved by both the House
and the Senate, to the a-
mount of $600,000.00. Final
approval, of course, is up to
the President.
However, not one penny of
this money can be spent to
dredge the lamentably shallow
and treacherous waters of Big
Sarasota Pass and New Pass
because these passes unlike
the Waterway itself or the
pass into Venice or Bradenton
have never been made an Ap-
proved Federal Project. Def-
inite prescribed steps must be
taken to accomplish this:
The community must desire
it and must ask that a prelim-
inary study of )usttfication be
made by the Army Engineers.
This request must be in suf-
ficient detail as to shallow-
ness, numbers of boats which
have grounded, the progress-
ion of the increasing shallow-
ness, in brief, the urgency of
the matter and its necessity
to the community.
The Engineers must then
request that funds be included
in their annual appropriation
to cover costs of the study
after they have held a public
hearing on the necessity of
making the study.
The results of the study will
then, if the Engineers are so
convinced, culminate in a
request to congress to establish


the passes as a federal project
and to appropriate sufficient
money to the Engineers for
proper dredging and mainten-
ance of the passes.

recreational and economic
future when, after the Inland
Waterway is completedthrough
Sarasota from Fort Myers to
Tarpon Springs, shallowness
of the passes prevents boats
getting out into the gulf or
prevent freight barges and
boats getting in. Venice and
Bradenton will prosper--Sara-
sota will become a stagnant
backwater.

We urge therefore that this
subject of improving our pass-
es is more important nowthan
ever before and that the cit-
izens get behind those individ-
uals and organizations who
have so successfully won the
first step--the money'for the
waterway -- remembering
that it is still one down and
one to go and that the heel
that squeaks the loudest gets
the grease.

To name a few such indi-
viduals and organizations:
The Board of County Com-
missioners; The Siesta Key
Association; Sarasota County
Chamber'of Commerce; The
Sarasota Power Squadron; The
Coast Guard Auxiliary; The
Key Look-out; Senator Hol-
land; Senator Smathers; Con-
gressman Haley.

For example, as to one way
you can help: If your boat
runs aground or has run a-
ground recently in the Pass,
write a brief memo to the
Sarasota County Commission,
James D. Neville, describ-
ing the length, draft and the
name of the boat and the
point in the Pass where you
went aground. Or, if you have
friends who are deterred from
settling here or deterred from
entering the passes and visit-
ing Sarasota on their boat


cruise because they fear the
shallowness of the water,
send that information in.

GENERAL
Siesta Pavilion
SIESTA KEY It seems
probable that landscaping the
Siesta Pavilion will cost about
$3,000 more than was origin-
ally planned on. Originally
four or five bids were taken
on a plan for landscaping and
were studied by the Recreation
Council. Their recommenda-
tion to the County Commis-
sioners was rejected because
of the high costs. Some
changes were made in the
plan and it was readvertised
for bids. Faltz Nurseries was
awarded the contract with a
low bid of $1,495. Then the
Commissioners decided that
the revised plan was not com-
plete and Ed Pastorius, County
Horticulturist, Ken Seibert and
Roy Hull revised the plan and
made their recommendations
to the County Commissioners
last Thursday. Some of the
additions to the plan are a
service road leading to the
concession stand for loading
and unloading, a picnic area
to the south of the concession
with a shell path leading to it
and the planting of greenery
with more maturity. A number
of phases of the revised plan
revert to the original plan. It
is estimated that the added
costs will be slightly under
$3,000 which will give a
total cost of around $4, 400.
In contrast to the value of the
land and buildings this cost is
not great. GH

OPEN FORUM

Can We Afford To Dig
A Canal!
The great pyramiding Ponzi
of Boston fame at the turn of
the century could have been
no more flamboyant in his
claims than has the author of
the Open Forum editorial,
page 14, column 2, of the
Aug. 6 Key Look-out.
Why is the Government in
debt today when there are the
great East Coast and Texas
Gulf Coast sections of the
Inland Waterway operating?
To refer to some of the
"conservative" statements
made, this writer offers the
following comments.
1 "Boon to pleasure boat
industry!" At the expense of
fish breeding and feeding
grounds and bird sanctuaries?
And creation of nuisances to
residents along the bays thru
"disposal of bilge, sewage and
garbage, and above all the
destruction of commercial and
sports fishing in these now
beautiful bays? No one with
slightest knowledge of or con-
sideration for these natural
resources could use this totally
materialistic approach. That
writer is no sportsman, in the
true sense of the word.
' Consider the effects of the
Florida East Coast canal.
There were once beautiful
bays there, ----only a mem-
ory now.
2 "Added attraction to
tourists?" Statistics indicate





? e ,

EXPOSED ROOTS after erosion at Anna Maria's County Public
Beach. It is run by the Island Kiwanis. Their publicity manager

tourists coming in increasing
numbers without the canal.
What of the people who live
here? Most of us have come
here in preference to the
"East Coast." Why?
3 "Increase in safety of
boating?" Don't compare this
to highways, please. Thevery
idea would be too odious.
4 "On commercial fishing,
charter and sight seeing boats'
Commercial fishing in a
canal? Charter boat fishing -
- in a canal? Sight Seeing -
- in a canal, with natural
beauties, fish and bird life
destroyed?
5 "Economic boost." Why
isn't it, on the East Coast of
Florida?
6 "Defense advantage?"
This sounds almost as phoney
as the arguments advanced by
W.C.I.N.D. in Washington
pleading for construction
money.
What protection could be
afforded by a route never
more than 2 miles inland and
never more than 15 miles
from water deep enough to
carry naval vessels, including
subs, with accurate ranges of
30 miles? Let's not talk about
aerial attacks on sitting ducks
in a narrow ditch.
7 "Reduction of freight rates?'
Writer should study traffic rules a
little more thoroughly. Whatbulk
type commodatees would come
from the West by barge? Andwhat
route?
Now as to "the purpose, then,
of this discussion."
This "six million dollar pro-
ject"so frequently mentioned
would not only cost much more
than that but it would require
many times this amount to build
the bridges to cross it. And by
figuring cubic yards of spoil a-
lone, it is hardly "conservative"
to assume that the canal could
be dug for this amount.
This whole thing sounds like a
sergeant in a mess hall!
Again I say that the U. S.
Government has no business being
in debt. Certainly not if they
have someone in Washington who
can figure income on waterways
as rapidly as that author.

Misty Switch On St. Judes
LONGBOAT KEY In the re-

densed humidity and oversize
mist, three families on St.
Jude's Drive changed homes
and moved away. About two
inches of mist freshened the
lawns during the performance.
The Bill Meyers moved into
671 St. Jude's Drive. The An-
ton Cedervalls moved out of
671. The Henry Cupis moved
into 761. St. Jude's was
jammed with trucks probably.
It was a bit thick. It could
have been barges. Few wheels
have been visible of late, and
sprinkler sales are off. It's
about time for some unseason-

have been terribly overpacked.

Tax May Be Raised
ANNA MARIA CITY At
an unpublicized meeting the
Mayor and all Commissioners
except Mr. D. Henry Clay
met in Anna Maria last week
to discuss the new budget. It
is indicated the tax will be
raised to 7 mills from the pres-
ent 5 mills. One citizen who
was said to have been present
(somehow he got word of the
unpublicized meeting) suggest-


ed raising it to 8 mills for two
years to make up the "loss"
incurred by the. reduction made
by the former Brier adminis-
tration.
Considerable money will be
needed to repair and pave
roads. Drainage will also
need considerable attention.
It is expected the budget will
be brought before the Anna

tember 7, at the Anna Maria

BAYS
Town Commission
Longboat Key
Florida
Re: Dredge & Fill Ordinance
Gentlemen:
At the last regular meeting
of the Commission of July 28
it passed on first reading a
dredge and fill ordinance
which:
1. requires all applicants
for permit for any dredge and
fill work, involving tidewater,
to furnish extremely expensive
and detailed information.
2. allows the town Manager
to waive all of said permit re-
quirements on jobs of less than
one acre or 2,000 cubic yards.
While we have no doubt that
such authority to save an ap-
plicant upwards of $200 in
legal fees, surveys and other
expenses, would be concient-
iously used by the present
Manager, we believe it invites
abuse by some future Manager.
Three months ago at the,
April 28 meeting of the Com-
mission one or more of the
commissioners objected to the

Blackburn, daughter, Mrs. John Huth, granddaughter Anna
Maria Huth. (Ed Bauman)


above mentioned provisions
on the ground that the require -
ments were too severe for
small jobs, and that the right
to waive the requirements gave
too much authority to one man.
The Longboat League Board
of Directors went on record as
unanimously opposing the
above provisions for the same
reasons.
The concept of passing laws
which can be waived by an
official, without spelling out
the grounds for the waiver, we
submit to you gentlemen is
basicly unsound for the follow-
ing reasons:
a. It puts the official in an
embarrassing position because
he will be criticized for waiv-
ing here and not waiving there
- in short for showing favor-
itism.
b. It invites bribery, co-
ersion, and unheal thy influ-
ence.
c, If dredge and fill permits
can be waived, why not build-
ing permits, sign permits, etc,
at the discretion of the appoint-
ed official?
d. Politically it would en-
able the party in power to
build up a powerful machine
dispensing favors to the faith-
ful; and cracking down on its
opponents.
We feel sure, that none of
the present Commissioners
would wish to establish such a
precedent.
The argument has been used


that most of the information
called for in the proposed ord-
inance is required by the
Trustees of the I. I. Fund any-
way. If so, why rush to put a
law on the books which you
have already said needs cofrect-
ing or amending in certain re-
spects.
We hear you thinking, "It's
-well enough to criticize but what
have you got to offer."
If We may make a suggestion:
1. Specify minimal permit in-
formation on a minimum job....
say clearing out an existing canal
or moving a seawall one foot....
still subject to inspection of
course.
2. Specify additional informa-
tion on jobs of up to 1,000 square
feet of land area for here is
where a neighbor's property be-
gins to be affected.
3. When you get above 10,000
square feet which might involve
a man extending his 100 foot lot
100 feet out into the bay, then
you can be tough.
The foregoing is not proposed
as a perfect formula but possibly
it will provide a pattern for spe-
cific requirements, and will a-
void the necessity of discretion-
ary or arbitrary decisions by an
official.
We know that much time and
thought have been given to the
ordinance, but earnestly request
that you do not enact it into law
until you are satisfied that it is
what you really want.
Respectfully submitted,

4-Way Stop Sign Gone
HOLMES BEACH Those in
attendance at the regular
monthly meeting of the City
of Holmes Beach were advised
that a controversial 4-way
stop sign located at 77th St.
and Palm Dr. had been re-
moved at the suggestion of
Traffic authorities who felt
that Palm Dr. was a through
street and the signs were not
properly in place there.
These 4 signs have been the
source of many complaints,
and since it was the only 4-
way stop intersection on the
entire island, it was annoying
to many people who felt that
it had been placed there at
the request of Alderman James


Marshall who lives on one of
the four covers. Motorists who
have passed through without
stopping, simply because they
did not expect to find a 4-
way stop intersection in that
sparsely travelled area, were
often called to task by the
distaff side of families at the
intersection, who often, or so
it seemed (to this reporter! )
waited there for someone to
either go through or fail to
slow down!

August 3, 1959



Mr. Arthur'Watherwax,
Advertising Manager
Key Look-out
Sarasota, Florida
Dear Mr. Watherwax:
During these so-called *dull* sumner months, we
have confined all of our newspaper advertising up to
this date, to the Key Look-out.
So far these summer months have been anything
but dull for us, as each month shows a substantial
increase over the preceding month.
A considerable part of this good business can be
directly traced to your paper. We hear customers say
constantly that they have seen our ads in the Key Look-
out, and we have made several sizeable sales, which
we know definitely were started in your excellent pa-
per. Apparently your readers in both counties are
natural prospects for our furniture.
Having been a sales and advertising manager myself
in previous years, I felt sure you would be happy to
know of the positive results obtained for us by the
Look-out.
Sincerely,

BEACHES
County's Greatest Asset
ANNA MARIA ISLAND -
There are very few who will
question the statement that
the Public Beach located in
Holmes Beach, is Manatee
County's greatest asset!
The County Commissioners
and the County Beach Com-
mission apparently realize the
wisdom of that statement and
have decided to take immed-
iate steps to protect what's
left of the Public Beach after
the June 17 storm gouged out
many feet of the beach and
again during the rain and
storms of early August.
M. B. "Micky" Harrison,
chairman of the CountyPublic
Beach Commission, has sub-
mitted a plan "for the restor-
ation and protection of the
beach at Anna Maria Island,
as an Emergency measure:,"
and advises the County Com-
missioners as follows:
"As is well known the beach
there has been severely dam-
aged by recent erosion and
unless steps are taken prompt-
ly, further damage may result.
Time is of the essence."
"The Beach Commission
has studied the problem, has
conferred with the U. S. Corps
of Engineers at Jacksonville,

tion District."
"The Coastal Engineering
Laboratories have prepared a
plan for (a) artificial nourish-
ment of some 1300 feet of
beach front, including the
beach front of the Public
Beach and extending south
therefrom, and (b) for the
installation of three groins to
hold the beach after the sand
has been pumped in. The
Beach Commission approves
this plan, recommends that
the work be done immediately
to execute this plan, by the
Anna Maria Island Erosion
Prevention District. The
Beach Commission should pay
a portion of the cost, pro-
rata to the Public Beach front-

age, which is somewhat more
than half of the total dis-
tance involved."
"The Beach Commission
has explored the possibility of
Federal aid in this project.
We find that the first step
must be the making of a new
report to supplant the one
made by the Corps of Engi-
leers in 1946, which was un-
lavorable to extending Feder-
al assistance to Anna Maria
Island. Conditions have since
changed, and the Corps of
Engineers are favorable to
making a new report, but it
will take time, perhaps a
year, and a lot of money, half of
which must be raised locally, to
get such a report through. After
the report is made, and assuming
it reads favorably for Federal sup-
port, such support will only a-
mount to one-third of the portion
,of work that is on public land and
none at all for work not facing
publicly owned upland. In view
of the Emergency nature of the
present situation, the Beach Com-
mission recommends that the
work be undertaken without wait-
ing for Federal support. However,
such action is taken without pre -
judice to the undertaking of a
new report by the Corps of Engi-
neers."
The Beach Commission has ex-
plored the possibility of securing
sand for artificial nourishment of
the beach from the dredging of


KEY LOOK-OUT


the proposed changes in the chan-
nel of the West Coast Inland Wa-
terway. Study of the plans for the
channel in this area, its distance
from the beach, and the long
time that must elapse before such
dredgings would be available,
indicate that such a plan is im-
practical for the present case, and
that the fill material must be se-
cured from a nearby borrow-area,
as proposed by the Anna Maria
Island Erosion Prevention District
a few weeks ago."
"The Beach Commission has
complete confidence in the com-
petence of the Anna Maria Island
Erosion Prevention District to plan
and execute this work. The work
has the enforcement of the Coast-
al Engineering Laboratories of the
University of Florida, who pre-
pared the designs of the groins.
The plan was verbally OK'd by
the Corps of Engineers on July 20."
"It is estimated that the work
will cost approximately $35,000.
The portion to be borne by the
Beach Commission would come to
approximately $20, 000. The rest
of the cost would be borne by the


August 20, 1959
Erosion Prevention District and by
the upland private property own-
ers. The Beach Commission has
now, in the budget, tentatively
approved by the County Commis-
sion $5000 which can be applied
to this work. Accordingly the
Beach Commission now requests
the County Commission to make
available to the Beach Commis-
sion an additional $15,000,
which, as stated above, is to be
considered an emergency need."


(signed) M. B. Harrison
Chairman
Manatee County
Public Beach
Commission
As a consequence of Harrison's
appeal, County Commissioners
voted unanimously to place $15,
000 at the disposal of the Beach
Commission so that they could
take immediate "emergency ac-
tion to prevent further erosion at
the Public Beach." The funds
were taken from the Commission's
Contingency Fund. EB

KEY LOOK-OUT,


BY THE COPYCAT


There's not much to report
in the way of errors and over-
sights since the last issue.
There was one little matter
that seemed to cause these
people some slight inconveni-
ence. When they went to the
printer to pick up the usual
6, 200 folded copies, about
5, 000 of them had 24 pages
out of order. I couldn't see
much to that. All they had to
do was just take them apart
and put them back togetherin
the- right order.

Island Blood Bank
ANNA MARIA The Couples
Club of the Roser Memorial
Community Church have made
an arrangement with the Mana
tee County BloodBank whereby
they will deposit blood with
them for use by anyone on the
Island who may need it.
Serving on the special com-
mittee to give this important
matter their attention are Gene
Moss, James Adams, JohnHuth
and Rev. Richard Wiggins.
Hosts and hostesses for the
August meeting were Dr. and
Mrs. Travel Brown and Mr. and
Mrs. John Walton.
Present at the meeting were
Mr. and Mrs. James Adams,
Dr. and Mrs. Trave Brown, Mr.
and Mrs. John Huth, Mr. and
Mrs. Richard Low, Mr. and
Mrs. Gene Moss, Mr. and Mrs.
George Norwood, Mr. and Mrs.
John Taylor, Mr. and Mrs.
John VanOstenbridge, Mr. and
Mrs. John Walton and Rev. and
Mrs. Richard Wiggins.


It seems to me they make
an awful fuss over some of
these little things. Somehow
they seemed to blame me for
the whole business. Everytime
I jumped up on the tables and
tried to amuse them by racing
up and down through the mass
of waving sheets they would
put me back on the floor in
such a strange way. I always
seemed to bounce off the wall
on the way down. The next
morning they looked extreme-
ly tired. I don't think they
eat properly.

the building situated just off
the road there was renovated
and made into stores, it be-
came known as South Gate.
And as of now there are plans
under way to add on to it.
There is even the possibility
that it may some day be
known as the Holmes Shopping
Center!
Holmes has his real estate
office there. Next to him
Walter Hardin has a branch
insurance office, and at the
south end, where a mortgage
servicing company used to
hold forth, Barry Levinson
will soon open the Island's
first coin operated automatic
laundry that will be open 24
hours a day, 365 days a year.
Jt will never be closed!
On the other side is Charlie
Pike's beautiful Island Garden
Center. Soon, he advises us,
there will be a 14 ft. addition
to his store where he will
carry a complete line of
beautiful cut flowers. Next
to him, to the north, Walter
Hardin will open a real estate
office as soon as an 18 ft.
addition to the building is
built to house his office.
This will necessitate mov-
ing the road to the Yacht
Club several feet to the north
and arrangements have al-
ready been made to do so.
Then, wait until you see Pete
Reynard's beautiful new sign!
Yup, --there's progress at

BRADENTON BEACH Al-

during a discussion concern-

outside interests were inter-
fering in matters that did not
concern them when it came
to the disposition of the south
end of the island. "Bradenton

OPEN FORUM
Erosion \
Regarding Beach Erosion,
your last Look-out gave the
impression that all of the
beaches are eroding, especi-
ally Captain Seibert's figure
#1 which showed that nine-
tenths of Longboat Key is
eroding. This is not altogether
correct. Actually all the beach
sand is continuously washing
away, but in many places the
sand is washingin from another
beach further up faster than it
is washing away, and this is
true of over half of Longboat
Key. Erosion is caused by
sand washing away due to the
wind and currents causing the
water to hit the beach at an
angle. All the sand up and
down the beaches is constant-
ly on the move and generally
in a southward direction.
You can note this southward
movement by looking at your
passes; the sand actually
moves around and hooks the
pass to the southward. Gener-
ally the beaches facing in a
southward direction suffer
less than those facing in a
westward direction. This has
been true for the last ten
years anyway. On the north
end of Longboat Key, where
it curves around, you have
quite a bit of erosion up to
500 feet according to the sur-
vey. Then down the Key
about a mile or so the beach
turns in and starts forming a
crescent (on the northern end
of the crescent accretion is
greatest) extending down from


August 20, 1959
opposite Bay View Estates to
around where the Trailer
Parks are.
At the Trailer Parks, the
beach here forms another
point and it is suffering more
erosion (here again the beach
slants more westerly). Also
where there is an outward
curve the erosion is more
likely to be serious than where
there is an inward curve. There
has been erosion from the
Trailer Parks down to Far
Horizons, but this erosion has

been pretty well conquered
by the use of seawalls and
groins, and the shore line has
remained fairly stable now
for many years. It is also pro-
tected on the south end by
natural rock formation just
south of Far Horizons.
As you get further south on
the Key you have erosion
down most of the rest of the
' island, where the Arvida
Corporation just bought. How-
ever, presently the only areas
of continuing erosion have





been the very north end for
about a mile and the very
south end for about 3 miles
or less than on-half of Long-
boat Key.
There are several ways of help-
ing to stop this erosion, one of
which is the use of groins. If
properly located at the place
where the sand is eroding in order
to trap the sand and slow it down
on its passageway, these willhelp
balance out the situation. In other
words, in some places the sand
is moving too fast, the use of a
permeable groin will allow some
of the sand to go through but slow
it down with a proper balance
here, stopping the sand faster
than it is moving away.
This will, of course, cause the
beaches on the other side to gain
less sand but these beaches are
generally accretion beacheswhere
the sand is building up and all
you would be doing is to make
them static instead of accretion
beaches. Is it not better to have
a definite shore line than to have
some beaches eroding and some
places building up? Build-up is
not detrimental and harmful but
is not altogether good either.
Buildings placed near the water,
move inland as the beach builds
out. Also accretion ground tends
to be slow as it takes many years
for this sand to get built up.
In a populated place sand very
seldom builds up height as there
is less grass or vegetation left on
the beach to catch it. The use of
solid jetties is not considered as
good as these because what is
called a leeward erosion. They
obstruct the water and cause a
swift current of water around the
outside edge, causing an erosion
on the outside edge and the lee-
ward side. They do not properly
filter the sand through; they are
merely a help.
Vertical seawalls themselves
are also not a good prevention
of erosion. They are only effec-
tive if you have a high wide
beach in front of the wall to keep
the high grass from washing away.
Of course, on the Bay the situa-
tion is different. On the Gulfside
where you get heavy waves hit-
ting the seawalls, the waves will
disperse and go over the wall and
cause washout on the rear of the
wall and they will hit with such
force that they will actually cause
the beach to wash away from the
wall. Of course, seawalls are
sometimes necessary on the Gulf,
and when you lose your beach it
is necessary then to rebuild it
with the use of groins.
Through this action with com-
petent engineering a district can
prevent erosion and through this
method only. Individual methods
are seldom completely satisfac-
tory. It takes a comprehensive
plan to adjust the sand flow so
that it is equal.
The passes, or inlets to the
bays between the keys, have a
stop gap. The sand actuallytakes
a lot longer to move through a
pass than it does to move up and
down a solid beach. In moving across
Sa pass the sand is also an obstmuction

to navigation.
Some of your authorities recom-
mend a very costly method of beach
nourishment which is a process of
pumping sand from the Bay over tothe
Gulf. This is not very satisfactory as
it is very expensive and eventually ex-
hausts your supply of sand in the Bay,
and an entirely deep Bay is not bene-
ficial either. Of course, the material
dredged from the Bay is usually not as

tions of weather. Then flow can be
adjusted with use of proper devices,
with more reasonable chances of suc-
cess.
People should not get the impression
however, that our Keys are completely
washing away. You can generally tell
where erosion is occurring, so if you
are buying land, ask for maps, surveys
(old and new) showing where the land
has been and examine your beach.See
if there is a high washed.away banker
if the bank is very low. It will not
always show the wash-away but you
can usually see other signs of erosion.

ENGINEERS
Any kind of obstruction will
gather sand on the beach in nor-
mal weather. If in regular for-
mation they are called groins or
jetties, however, there has nev-
er yet been designed a seaward
groin of any kind that will hold
sand on the beach or protect
property in bad weather. That
is axiomatic.
Seaward groins are a fair
weather product. They are good
between storms. When storms
strike they do little good. The
storm digs under or over walls
and washes away or destroys
beach property. That is erosion
and people are so accustomed
toitthattheyjust take it; eith-
er repair or move out but just
take it as an act of God.
The only way to stop erosion
is to use the elements. Make
so violent a turbulence at the
shoreline thatthe sluggish mass
istooheavyto flow. The waves
are destroyed andcan not reach
the wall. This can only be done
by means of parallel groin cribs.
Parallel groin cribs are the only
method yet designed for using
the elements to keep sand on
the beach. They are an all
weather protection against ero -
sion. The parallel groins never
show except in stormy weather
whenthey are doingtheir work.

ANNA MARIA ISLAND -
The Anna Maria Fire Control
District has set Tuesday,
October 13, as the date for a
special referendum vote to
determine whether the voters
will agree to the new higher
rates which will be requested.
At the request of Commis-
sioner Walter Botkin, news-
papers were asked not to pub-
lish the rates which will be
proposed until further public -
ity on the matter can be pre-
pared by the Board.
The new rates as proposed
in the Legislative bill are:
Businesses $18; Single resi-
dences $7.50; Duplexes $10;
Vacant lots 754; Unsubdivid-
ed areas 75t; Rental property
of 3 units $13.50; Rental
property of 4 units $18; $2
per unit for each unit above
four; trailer lots $1.
The Commissioner saidthat
the proposed new rates are
"maximum possibilities, but
that didn't mean that the
Board would increase the rate
to those amounts." EB

:ance I can absolutely enter
Marina Drive at 53rd Street
and travel all the way along
that nice paved road to 73rd
Street where I have to make
my delivery! Now I know --
;--- well, that THAT wasn't
what the town Fathers intended.
What they intended was that I
was to go up Gulf Drive to
73rd Street and then across to
Marina; but THAT'S not the
way the ordinance reads! It'll
be fun to see who gets the
first ticket and watch the

results!"
(There's another similar
situation in the waterways
ordinance! It permits a 15 ft.
pier or pilings out into a
"waterway" but fails to indi-
cate the width of the water-
way, thus a waterway of 40
or 50 ft. width, with 15 ft.
pier or pilings jutting out from
each side, into them could
create a serious hazard!) EB
