Wildlife center

has needs,


supply drive
The Wildlife Education and Rehabilitation Center
of Bradenton Beach has been caring for and releasing
back to nature injured, orphaned and displaced wildlife
for more than 19 years.
It also provides educational programs through its
Web-based newsletter, "Care Talk," available at wild-
lifeinc.org, its Wildlife outreach booth, seen at art fairs
in Manatee and Sarasota counties, and through numer-
ous programs offered at schools, senior citizen centers
and civic organizations.
Recently, the organization reached a crossroads.
After nearly two decades, the facility in Bradenton
Beach, the home of Ed and Gail Straight, has worn
out. It's time to either retire into the sunset, or undergo
a major refurbishing of the rehab facilities, according
to the Straights.
Given the pressing needs of the wildlife commu-
nity, ever more severely impacted by rapid develop-
ment and habitat loss, they chose the latter.
At $10,000 (and counting), they are entering the
last phase of constructing completely new cages, mews
and decking bringing the Center back to a state-of-
the-art facility.
"Such a project has had a huge impact on our
budget," say the Straights. "In tough financial times,
we are turning to our supporters, but in a way you might
not first expect by presenting a Critter in Crises
Bleach Drive."
So far, this season, on its way to its annual 2,000-
3,000 animal and bird cases, center volunteers have
cared for otters, fawns, ducks, foxes, ospreys, yellow-
crowned night herons, tortoises, screech owls, baby
songbirds and on and on.
What do they all have in common?
"A potpourri of poopery," say Ed and Gail.
And the antidote to all this excrement is bleach,
and lots of it. Thus, the center is asking for donations
of the following supplies:
Bleach (all we can get!) .
Paper towels.
Dawn dish detergent (the best for removing oil
from feathers and fur).
Laundry detergent (they do many loads a day of

Holmes Beach budget tops $12 million

The Holmes Beach City Commission began its
budget process by establishing a tentative tax rate for
2006-07. At the recommendation of city treasurer Rick
Ashley, the commission agreed to a maximum millage
rate of 1.9 mills the city's current millage rate.
A mill is $1 for every $1,000 of assessed value of
property less any exemptions. This rate can be lowered
through the adoption of the budget at the public hear-
ings in September, but it cannot be raised by elected
The overall proposed budget for the city of Holmes
Beach is tentatively scheduled for review at the first of
two public hearings at 6:30 p.m. Tuesday, Sept. 12.
The proposed budget amount is $12,233,903 up
from the current budget of $10,147,903. It includes
reserves and carryover amounts from the 2005-06
budget. It also includes funds previously budgeted for
the Key Royale Bridge.

Some increased expenditures in the new budget
include the salary and benefits for an additional police
officer per Chief Jay Romine's request. The entry-level
position will be assigned to the day shift, he said.
Another anticipated expense is budgeted on bor-
rowed funds for the Key Royale Bridge replacement
at $3.7million.
Stromwater drainage projects are planned and paid
out of the stormwater utility fee, including relocating
a storm drain at Gulf and Marina drives for $90,000,
work on the Holmes Boulevard basin at 74th Street,
amounting to $115,000, and the south end of the
Holmes Boulevard basin for $210,000.
Commissioners were given a copy of the proposed
budget at the July 25 work session and copies are a\ ail-
able to the public at city hall. Residents will be allowed
to comment on the proposed budget during two public
hearings in September.

Anna Maria starts comp plan workshops

By Rick Catlin
Islander Reporter
Three years after Anna Maria began the long and
arduous task of revising its comprehensive plan -
and four months after the March 2006 due date to the
Florida Department of Community Affairs the city
commission held the first of several planned workses-
sions July 24 to review all parts of the document as
recommended by the ad hoc committee and planning
and zoning board.
Professional planner Tony Arrant, who has
guided the city through the process since its incep-
tion, noted that it will likely take at least another
year for the revised plan to reach the DCA for initial

"very few issues in Anna Maria" that might raise a DCA

in jeopardy at least in Bradenton Beach.

Ed Chiles, o%\ ner of the establishment, has been

rules, erection of the tent and use of the tent for'guests
without the necessary permits, and commercial, use of
property designated by the city as a preservation zone.
Code enforcement board members eventually
reached the conclusion that parking just to the south of

.'historically acceptable since the 1950s, was a.moot

offer a ruling.

parking plan for the property and said he would work

Despite the three-year time frame for the docu-
ment to reach the commission, Arrant had high praise
for those involved in the comprehensive plan and the
information gathering that took place when"the ad hoc
committee first met.
"This is one of the most progressive action of any
government I've worked with," he said.
What the city has on its proposed future land-use
map is what is actually land use that is there no.\\, rrant
noted, not what someone though might be there.
Arrant cautioned the commission before it began,
however, that the FLUM is a "general land-use map,"
but once accepted by the DCA, zoning in the city must
be consistent with the FLUM.
Zoning "can be more restrictive" than the FLUM,
'"but not less," he advised.
He also observed that it became clear to the ad
hoc committee during its two-year deliberation, that

Regarding the tent, utilized for VIP guests to view
the fireworks and partake of the restaurant's fare, code
enforcement board members determined that the res-
taurant was" in violation of city codes for not getting a
permit for its erection. Chiles and his attorney, Ricinda
Perry, said that the tent had been a part of the fireworks
special event permit for the past few years and should
have been known to city officials, but code enforcement
board members disagreed.
No fines or fees were levied in the determination
of the violation regarding the tent.
Board members deadlocked on the matter of com-
mercial use of the restaurant in the area zoned for pres-

Chiles said he didn't know what he would do at the

Chiles said.

Cops rush to aid officer in Bradenton Beach

By Mike Quinn
NewsManatee Publisher.
Special to The Islander
An argument led to a call for help to fellow officers
in Bradenton Beach July 27.
Shortly after 8 p.m., a Bradenton Beach police offi-
cer was dispatched to the 200 block of Bay Drive North
in reference to a w arrant for James Huff, 27. Apparently,
a neighbor and acquaintance of the man, Christopher
Kluza, had notified police of the warrant against Huff.
When Bradenton Beach police made contact with
Huff, his girlfriend, Trinia Martin, 33, ran out of their
apartment and began attacking the neighbor, Kluza.
The Bradenton Beach officer called for backup
aid, and officers from Holmes Beach, Lohgboat Key

and deputies from the Manatee Count\ Sheriff's Office
began to respond with lights and sirens blazing.
Meanwhile, the BBPD officer ordered the woman
to stop beating'on Kluza's face. She continued hitting
Kluza, according to reports. .
The BBPD officer was able to place Huff in hand-
cuffs and turned to attempt to separate Kluza and
Martin, but she hit Kluza several more times.
Kluza also attempted to restrain Martin as she con-
tinued hitting him.
Eventually, the BBPD officer was able to place
Martin in handcuffs.
Trinia Martin was charged with battery and resist-
ing arrest. Huff was charged with violation of probation
for domestic battery.

since the 1989 comprehensive plan was adopted, Anna
Maria's current zoning is "not consistent" with the 1989
Once the commission adopts the FLUM and com-
prehensive plan and it's approved by the DCA, zoning
ordinances must follow that are "consistent" with the
The commission also discussed public comment
during the worksessions.
Arrant again had high praise for the city, noting
that Anna Maria "has one of the most progessive public
input policies" that he's seen. The public gets to com-
ment on anything.
But for anyone who wants to be "on the record"
for the comprehensive plan, that has to be done at the
public hearing the commission will schedule when it
concludes its worksessions. And the comments must
be directed toward the comprehensive plan, not other
He noted' that about half the people who spoke at
the planning and zoning board public hearing discussed
zoning, which has nothing to do with the FLUM or
comprehensive plan.
Mayor SueLynn said she was distressed that few
members of the public showed up at the ad hoc commit-
tee or planning and zoning board worksessions to pro-
vide input, "just at the end when they said they didn't
like it."
That may well be the case, said Arrant, but at some
point, the commission will have to set a public hearing
and take public comment, then vote "yes" or "no" on
the comprehensive plan as recommended.
Commission chairperson John Quam suggested that
public comment at the worksessions be taken at the
end of the meeting, not after each line item has been
discussed by commissioners.
Commissioner Duke Miller agreed. "Just inform
the public that the real objections should take place at
the public hearing."
But SueLynn noted that more and more attor-
neys are showing up at public hearings representing
someone's opinion, often turning a meeting into a
civil trial.
Arrant said that lawyers get "paid to be intimidat-
ing," but the commission should remember that a public
hearing on the comprehensive plan is legislative, not
"If an attorney is going to act like it's litigation, then
you act like a judge and say 'over ruled,'" he'said.
Commissioners agreed to have Arrant lead them
through each individual line and section of the proposed
comprehensive plan.
After a five-hour session, the commission agreed
to meet again in a comp plan worksession from 10 aim.
to 3 p.m. Aug. 21.
Only one member of the public attended the July
24 worksession.

Better beaches for more turtles

By Jim Hanson
Islander Reporter
At the halfway point of the sea turtle nesting
season on Anna Maria Island, there are 110 nests on
our beaches compared with 97 for all of last year, said
Suzi Fox, the turtle permit holder and director of Anna
Maria Island Turtle Watch.
"There are far fewer false crawls," she said of the
zipper-like tracks the female turtles leave in the sand
when they come ashore to nest, then change their minds
and head back to sea. Some years there are twice as many
false crawls as successful excursions., ashore by mother
turtles. This year there are fewer false crawls than nests.
"That, I think, comes from much better people
behavior on the beaches," said Fox. "People are being
careful not to expose lights to the beach, so turtles aren't
frightened away. And there's less litter to obstruct them
umbrellas, chairs and so on left out overnight."

Mote Marine

continues study of

nesting sea turtles
By Billy Malfese
Islander Reporter
Two healthy loggerhead turtles named "Sundae"
and "Little Island Mama" were released at Lido Key
in the Gulf of Mexico on July 26 after being deemed
healthy by state officials and caretakers at Mote
Marine Laboratory.
Both were discovered this January suffering from
cold temperatures and parasites in the blood, but both
are "completely healthy and should be fine on their
own," said Charlie Manire, chief veterinarian and head
of Mote's Sea Turtle Rehabilitation Hospital.
Both turtles were equipped with flipper tags, which
is a microchip that will provide information to Mote on
the turtles' whereabouts.
Mote scientists are now using satellite tags on some
turtles to learn about sea turtle migrations to help under-
stand and evaluate potential threats turtles face when
they are far from our area's nesting beaches.
The researchers are attaching the satellite-linked
tags to eight loggerhead sea turtles this summer. Mote
began using satellite tags to learn about sea turtle migra-
tion and movements in July 2005 when they attached
tags to five female loggerhead sea turtles that had nested
on Casey Key in Sarasota County.
Since the 1950s, scientists have used flipper tags to
identify and study individual sea turtles. Mote has con-
ducted tagging studies in the months of June and July
peak nesting season on Casey Key since 1982.
The studies confirm that female loggerhead turtles
migrate to nest every two to four years and have repro-
ductive life spans measured in decades.
While scientists have learned a lot about sea turtles'
nesting habits on shore, 99 percent of a turtle's life is
spent at sea. And while they're under water, it is much
harder to gather data-about their life cycles.
'-The tags transmit a signal to a satellite as a turtle
surfaces for air and then the data is sent to us via e-
mail," said Manire. The 2005 turtles were tracked as they
na\ igated through complex\ currents and danger zones of
hear) boat traffic. dredge actii\ nt and red tide, he said.
E\entuall\. all fixe turtles settled into their home
ranges, hundreds or even thousands of miles away from
Sarasota Counts. Four of the fi'e tagged turtles were
international migrants.
Besides tracking the turtles daily locations.
researchers also learned how% fast the turtles swim, the

threats far from the nesting beaches..
The stud\ found that Sarasota's turtles journeyed to

Seven of those 110 nests have hatched out already,
the tiny hatchlings breaking through the eggs' shells
and battling their way to the surface of the sand, then
scrambling down into the Gulf of Mexico.
Sea turtles dig down a couple of feet, deposit a hun-
dred or so eggs and cover them to let the warm sand and
sun do the incubating, about a two-month process.
And turtles are still coming ashore to make nests
while earlier nests are hatching, a healthy phase of the
cycle that absorbs most of the attention of Turtle Watch
About the only non-hatching program they are
doing now are the morning tours for visitors of their
beach domain. These start at 7:15 a.m. Wednesday and
Saturday at the Manatee Public Beach, 4000 Gulf Drive,
on the beach at Manatee Avenue and Gulf Drive.
The guided tours are free and open to the public.
Call Fox at 778-5638 to arrange a spot in a tour of your

This year, scientists began their studies earlier in
the season, during May, because sea turtles can nest up
to five times within a summer.
"We were able to learn where turtles reside between
nests, before they migrate homeward to a distant forag-
ing ground," said Dr. Tony Tucker, manager of Mote's
Sea Turtle Conservation and Research Program.
Dr. Tucker, with help from staff and volunteers, has
tagged four turtles on Casey Key this summer including
Tuttle. who was tagged on May 24 and then laid four
nests on Ca.se\ Key.
Redlow, whose tag was sponsored by the Coastal
Wildlife Club. was tagged May 25 on Manasota Key and
has already traveled more than 1,800 miles, partly because
of currents generated during Tropical Storm Alberto.
Genie was tagged on Casey Key on July 17, and is
named after the founding director of Mote Marine Lab-
oratory, Dr. Eugenie Clark. After Genie's eggs hatch,
scientists will study the eggshells and unhatched eggs
to learn about marine pollution.
A small DNA sample taken from Genie will also
help scientists learn about her genetic makeup and a few
barrifcles iemon ed from her shell will help researchers
situd the distribution of barnacle species.

Of the seven nests hatched so far, a few baby turtles
have been misled to their deaths by shoreside lights, Fox
said. Turtles instinctively head for light upon hatching,
for eons the reflected ripple of the sea but nowadays
also artificial lights ashore visible from the turtle level
of the beach.
Island residents have learned of the dangers their
lights pose and have been very good about shielding
them from the beach or just turning them off during the
nesting season, said Fox. The deadly incidents have
been in front of rental properties in Bradenton Beach.
For the next few weeks, Turtle Watch volunteers
will be providing printed warnings and instructions for
turtle safety to resort rentals.
All in all, though, local turtle watchers are pleased
with the public's response and the low mortality rate
among hatchlings.

Lastly, Ariel was tagged on July 18 on Casey
Key and is sponsored by a third-grade class from
Connecticut. The class also adopted a turtle during the
2005 nesting season.
Turtle names are chosen by the organizations or
individuals that helped sponsor the satellite tags. This
year, the public also helped name several turtles after a
naming contest earlier in the summer. Four remaining
turtles will be tagged this week on Casey Key, which
hosts the second largest nesting assemblage of logger-
heads in the Gulf of Mexico.
The sponsorship of a satellite tag allows direct
public involvement with the science that helps ensure
sea turtle survival. Individuals can contribute to the
sponsorship of satellite tags or educators can adopt
a turtle for their classrooms. Visit www.mote.org for
more information about satellite tagging and other areas
of investigation within Mote's Sea Turtle Conservation
and Research Program.
"'The turtle patrol program is invaluable in our

Wow! Big budgets
The three cities on Anna Maria Island are formulating
their millage rates and budgets, like most other govern-
ments and taxing bodies.
And doing their best, they say, to keep their millage rates
But as anyone knows, property values have increased
greatly in recent years, and with plenty of sales to new
owners, come newer, higher accessed values. All that
translates to greater income to the cities.
It's not surprising that they can "maintain" last year's
millage rate, or, as is the case in Bradenton Beach, reduce
it only slightly.
Just to our south, the professionally managed town of
Longboat Key includes fire service, unlike on Anna Maria
Island, which has an independent fire district that budgets
and taxes on its own.
Longboat Key has a population of approximately 8,000
permanent residents similar to Anna Maria Island. Its
tax base, however, includes lots of big, expensive homes
and tall condos, and its proposed millage is 1.465 for a
general fund budget of $15,729,000, not including capital
expenditures like beach renourishment, which the town
funds through two independent taxing districts.
There are similarities and there are differences, obvi-
One obvious difference between Longboat Key and
the three Island cities is professional management.
You could see some differences, too, if you regularly
reviewed meeting agendas and items up for consideration
-by the various commissions.
In the three Island cities, speculation and consider-
ation, even "dissection," takes place among the commis-
sioners, who seemingly aren't always "equipped" with
sufficient information to make decisions. None of the
-Island's three cities has a grant specialist, for example.
But on Longboat Key, for example, we noted a simple
agenda item on the town commission's consent list for
a state-funded grant for litter pickup on Gulf of Mexico
Drive a state roadway.
Do either Bradenton Beach or Holmes Beach, both
with thoroughfares of the same state road, have knowledge
of such a grant to help fund their public works depart-
ments? Doubtful. Most elected officials wouldn't know
such funding exists.
And it's jusXt one teeny-tiny example of why, with a
$12-plus million dollar budget in Holmes Beach, Anna
Maria's proposed.spending of $2.373 million, and Bra-
denton Beach's $3,831,315 spending package, we need
professional management. .
The Island's collective city budgets are more than
$18.4 million.:
Maybe it's not so much "jacked up," but it's a lot
of money and who doesn't think a professional manager
could make better use of what we have, find funds to
supplement our budgets and be able to not just "run the
city," but fund improvements that the entire community
could enjoy?
,We're all being "jacked up" to believe this is the best
we can get "for the dollar."

Thanks for the memories
It hardly seems fitting that the only gratitude I can
express is "thanks for the memories."
I spent my best and most productive years working.
on Anna Maria Island. Well, I called it work but others
wouldn't agree with me.
All my customers taught me things just by allow-
ing me into their lives on a daily basis. There were
those who have supported various mission adventures
I went on throughout the years, those who have helped
me put clothes on peoples' backs and food in their
pantries-as well as furniture in their homes all have
made me realize that my job went far beyond being
your mailman. ..
I will never forget those years and ican only hope
that the person who will now serve you will take as
much away from the experience as I have in just know -
ing the kind men. women and children of Bradenton
Beach. .
Lest I not forget the dogs your pets were also
some of my best friends as they were sometimes the
only ones home to greet me.
I v\ ish I could take the time to personally thank
each of you for these memories and your kindness. As
I say goodbye and turn the pages to a new adventure,'
I will continue to do as I hae done for so many years
-- pra) that the place where I place my feet will be
blessed. I have said this prayer for all the places my
feet have taken me in Bradenton Beach.
,I strongly believe God has made all of you extra
special in his eyes.

Anna Maria to proceed with coastal district

By Rick Catlin
Islander Reporter
Ask any lawyer a direct question and you'll get an
answer: Maybe.
That seemed to be the case July 27 when the Anna
Maria City Commission reviewed an opinion by attor-
ney Nancy Stroud on the city's proposed coastal overlay
district. The COD would control new construction in
those areas within the Federal Emergency Management
Agency's A-I flood zone and seaward of the coastal
construction control line.
Stroud indicated the city might be sued because of
the COD, and then again, it might not be.
In her report, Stroud said property owners landward
of the CCCL but within the proposed district might be
"inordinately burdened" by the COD restrictions under
the 1995 Bert Harris Private Property Rights Act that
was passed by the Florida Legislature. That "might"
result in lawsuits against the city.
They might even win, maybe.
Then again, said Stroud, the ordinance isn't all that
Her opinion was that the proposed COD is "gener-
ally consistent" with the city's current comprehensive
plan, zoning and land-use classifications and property
owners seaward of the CCCL were already controlled
by those measures prior to adoption of the Bert Harris
In addition, environmental and safety restraints
imposed already by state and federal laws and
agencies limit further construction seaward of the
Put another way, the COD would likely have no
effect on the future value of those lots, but might pres-
ent a problem for owners of property landward of that
Stroud, however, offered some solutions to that part
of the problem, such as eliminating private roads, gated
communities and inclusion of the commercial district
in the COD.
City attorney Jim Dye agreed, maybe.
"It's extremely difficult to predict what will happen
under a Bert Harris claim," he said, but suggested that

the city could apply Stroud's suggestions citywide.
Commissioner Duke Miller agreed that the city should
only be concerned about lots seaward of the CCCL
and suggested that Dye and city planner Alan Garrett
proceed with an ordinance that included Stroud's sug-
"That tidbit about private roads was worth .the
price" of Stroud's fee, he said, noting that some unde-
veloped properties within the proposed COD have no
public access at present.
Anna Maria resident Jack Egan, who owns several
large undeveloped lots seaward of the CCCL, said he
has no plans to build anything on his properties and
agreed with the proposed ordinance.
The COD would not restrict further new home
construction within its borders, but would eliminate
lot-splitting or accumulation to build several homes on
one or more parcels.
The COD border would essentially include all
property seaward of North Shore Drive and North Bay
Boulevard, although the ordinance will clearly define
its boundaries.
A moratorium on new construction within the pro-
posed COD borders remains in effect until Oct. 13.
In other business, the-commission gave final
approval to an ordinance that would eliminate the cur-
rent requirement to combine non-conforming lots to
build a new house. Dye clarified that the anyone who
currently has a plat of record, or non-conforming lot,
can build on it as long as they meet the setback and lot
coverage requirements.
The ordinance also does not increase the city's den-
sity or the number of platted lots, said Garrett.
The commission also approved a measure to have
Dye and Garrett prepare a draft ordinance to adjust the
setback requirements for "through lots" those with,
a backyard that adjoins a street. An ordinance passed
several years ago inadvertently denied about 31 through
lot property owners the ability to construct a pool in
their back yard.
The draft ordinance will be sent to the planning and
zoning board for review and a recommendation to the
city commission.

The Islander, headlines announced:
Anna Maria city commissioners voted to make
drinking an alcoholic beverage in a public place a
second degree misdemeanor that requires an auto-
matic court appearance. Previously, violators were
hit with a civil fine of $55, but the city had no way
of collecting the money if the offender didn't pay up.
Failure to show up in court will result in an automatic
arrest warrant, the ordinance said.
Cortez residents voted not to join a state plan
to make the village an "enterprise zone," and eligible
for business loans to assist the offshore gill net fish-
erman put out of business by an amendment to the
Florida Constitution last year. Residents agreed the
state would have too much control over development
in Cortez if the village were in the plan.

Islanders: Beware of computer identify theft

By Rick Catlin
Islander Reporter
When long time Island resident Barbara Sato dis-
covered identify thieves had used the Internet to break
into her bank account and fleece it for a considerable
sum of money, she was a bit stunned.
Whenever she did her Internet banking, she always
assumed that her bank had the appropriate firewall and
security to prevent hacking and computer ID theft.
In addition, Sato has anti-virus and firewall protec-
tion on her own computer in addition to the computers
at her office.
"1 was shocked. I couldn't figure out how some-
one could have broken into my account. The bank said
it wasn't their fault," said Sato, who now has myriad
forms to fill out and telephone calls to make to get her
money back and block any future theft attempts.
One of the most common identify theft techniques
that snares the unsuspecting consumer is an e-mail
claiming to be from your bank, Internet provider or
credit card company.
The e-mail usually states that the company is
having computer problems or upgrading its security
and needs to double-check your account information. It
asks you to click on the link provided to be directed to
the company Web site, where you are asked to provide
your account number and password so that the "bank"
can erifn \\ho you are.
The technique is called "phishing," said Robert
Sesterhenn of Computer Network Services, and "you
would be amazed how many people fall for it. It's just
an easy w a) for thie' e; to break into your account with-
out hacking "
Sato said she has seen such a request in her e-mail,
bubi ne\ er opened the message orsubmitted a reply.
Da'e Billings of Anna Maria Network Inc., the
company \ that takes care of the computers at Sato's
office, was able to trace that request back to a Web site
in Great Britain.
"\ hen we followed it up, it was just a personal
Web site, but it looked very official," he said. "They
even had the bank logo and the same log-in page the
bank uses. It was very smooth."
Billings cautioned, however, that banks don't send
e-mails saying "Dear customer," or "Attention account
"The bank will send an e-mail using your name
and usually follow that up with a letter. Don't ever
open a link to a bank Web site. Go directly to that site

yourself," he stressed.
An unsuspecting customer might use the link given
in the "phish" e-mail and log-in as directed. If you do
that, you're in trouble. That's all thieves need to steal
from your account, he said.
And anyone using the Internet for banking or to
make on-line purchases using a credit card shouldn't
automatically assume they are protected from identify
Sesterhenn said having anti-virus protection and a
firewall are a must for anyone doing on-line banking
or making credit card purchases via the Internet.
And make sure the company you are doing business
with has appropriate security. It might be the company's
computer that allows hackers to steal your information,
he said. When you see a company's URL address on
your computer, said Sesterhenn, it should read "https"
if it's a secure site. The "s" at the end of http stands for
security, he said.
If the address doesn't show the "s," he emphasized,
"your computer might be secure, but that site isn't and
the information you give them could be stolen." In
addition, a secure Web site will usually have a lock icon
indicating security in the lower right-hand corner.
Occasionally when people go to an Internet site,
they will see a message that says something like:
"You are about to enter an unsecure site. Do you
wish to continue?",
Enter that site only if you're not going to give them
any personal information, a credit card number, bank
account information or a Social Security number.
"That site is an open invitation to identify thieves,"
said Sesterhenn.

Sometimes, even with the best firewalls and spam
blocker on your computer, someone will go to a Web
site and get a pop-up ad telling the user they've won
something for free.
"Don't open that ad," he said, especially if you
have just come from your Internet bank account, plan
to go there during your current session or are making
an on-line purchase during the session.
Even if you open and close the site right away, the
pop-up ad could have a "Trojan Horse" that will imme-
diately infect your computer, searching for any informa-
tion on your bank account or credit card. If you've just
completed a transaction, the Trojan Horse might be able
to send that information back to identify thieves.
Despite the advertisement claim, "nothing is free,"
he said. "It may cost you your bank account."
And never open anr "attachment" from someone
you don't know unless your computer's anti-virus pro-
tection declares it to be safe.
Other techniques and procedures that Islanders can
employ to prevent Internet identify theft are to make
sure they are using an anti-virus program that scans
their computer daily, and run their ad-aware protection
regularly, if not daily.
If you do discover you're the victim of identify
theft, immediately call your bank and credit card com-
panies and obtain a Florida Identity Theft Victim Kit
from your local law enforcement agency.
For more information on prQtecting yourself against
computer identity theft, call Sesterhenn at 778-3620
or Billings at 518-3236. Both men have a number of
Island clients and can offer professional expertise .to -
ensure you and your computer are protected.

Anna Maria keeps tax rate in new budget

By Rick Catlin
Islander Reporter
Anna Maria taxpayers won't be facing any ad
valorem tax increases in the upcoming 20i06-07 budget,
at least not from the city.
Commissioners at their July 27 meeting gave
preliminary approval to 1. 5 million budget for the
coming year that will keep the tax rate at 2.0 mils per
$1,000 of assessed evaluation. The milage rate can't
be increased at the September budget hearings, but
can be lowered.
At the same time, the commission met its stated
goal of having a reserve fund of 35 percent by elimi-
nating or reducing several expenditures, including
more than $100,000 for the Lake LaVista dredg-
ing project because it won't be done again.until the

City treasurer Diane Percycoe said the reserve fund
will be at 31.91 percent in the 2006-07 budget and will
hit 37.1 percent if all revenues and expenditures in the
proposed budget are met.
The commission also approved a transfer of
some $110,000 from the contingency fund in the
budget to the reserve fund, leaving $50,000 for
emergency spending.
Apparently concerned about the potential loss
of staff employees to other municipalities, the com-
mission also approved a 5 percent pay raise for the
building official and the five staff members who are
not department heads. The city clerk and public works
director will each receive a 3.5 percent pay hike in the
new budget.

City wants to give variance, but Olesens want more

By Rick Catlin
Islander Reporter
Anna Maria city commissioners were in a gener-
ous mood at their July 27 meeting, agreeing informally
that property owner Gary Olesen and his family are
aggrieved and likely entitled to a variance for their
home currently being remodeled at 504 S. Bay Blvd.
Olesen, however, seemed to want more than just a
While he said his family has never been opposed to
a variance, he'd like the city to vacate a beach access
adjacent to his property because it "makes our house
legal and clears up a lot of wrongs done in the past."
The Olesens obtained a building permit earlier this
year to remodel their home, but work on that project
was halted in April after building official Kevin Dono-
hue discovered that the construction was infringing
upon an adjacent beach access still owned by the city.
The Olesens have presented correspondence dating
from the 1980s and 1950s indicating that city officials
then considered that they owned the 10-foot easement
in question. Research by city attorney Jim Dye, how-
ever, failed to find any legal vacation or dedication of
the access by the commission to the Olesens.
Efforts by Dye and attorney Craig Colburn, rep-
resenting the Olesens, have failed to resolve the issue,
although commissioners indicated they believe the
Olesens do have a hardship because they've already
been given a building permit and should be granted a

SAM meets Saturday
Manatee County Commissioner Jane von Hahmann
will be the guest speaker at the Save Anna Maria Inc.
meeting Saturday, Aug. 5.
The meeting begins at 10:30 a.m. at the Island
Branch Library, 5701 Marina Drive, Holmes Beach.
SAM President Sheila Hurst said the meeting fol-
lows a roundtable format and is a forum for Island resi-
dents to discuss issues that concern the Island commu-
The club is also looking to fill three positions: his-
torian, phone secretary and corresponding secretary.
The tasks for these positions can easily be done at home
and would be a good w\ay for someone with limited
mobility to get involved with the group, said board
member Billie Martini.
The historian is responsible for gathering news
clippings and sorting through items collected by club
members to be placed into scrapbooks.
For more information, call Hurst at 538-3256.

Olesen, however, asked the commission if they
would grant a variance to allow the work to proceed
immediately, then follow that up with a vacation
Not so fast, indicated Commissioner Dale Wood-
land. He said he's opposed to any vacation and Mayor
SueLynn noted that the city's comprehensive plan for-
bids it from vacating any beach access.
"I'm perplexed," said Woodland. "I think you
should be willing to take the variance."
Olesen said he would, but he'd also like a vacation
of the easement.
While the commission consensus was to "fast-,
track" a variance request to get the Olesens back into
construction as soon as possible, Dye pointed out that

the commission can't just immediately approve a vari-
ance or vacation. There's a legal process, depending
upon which avenue they choose, he said.
"If you are changing ordinances and vacating alley-
ways, you have to have a public hearing," noted Dye.
Any variance or vacation request must be submitted
to the planning and zoning board for a recommendation
before it comes to the commission for a public hearing,
he added.
Dye suggested a meeting among himself, Colburn,
the Olesens and a commission representative to discuss
all options and find the quickest way to resolve the
The commission agreed and Mayor SueLynn
appointed Commission Chairman John Quam to rep-
resent the city at that meeting.

Fire budget increase

includes major loan
That reported $1.28 million increase in the West
Manatee Fire and Rescue budget for 2006-07 isn't what
it seems, said WMFR Chief Andy Price.
While on paper, it looks like the WMFR budget
went up nearly 28 percent, Price explained that the
budget has to show a $945,000 loan for a new ladder
truck as revenue. The same amount appears in the
expenditure column.
Once the $945,000 is deducted from the proposed
budget, Price noted, the actual increase is only about
$280,000, or just 5 percent above the current 2005-06
budget of $4.57 million, Price noted.
The public hearing on the budget is scheduled for 6
p.m. Thursday, Aug. 17, at Fire Station No. I on Marina
Drive in Holmes Beach.

Anna Maria vet kept her

enigma secret for 35 years
When you first meet Anna Maria resident Ann
Kurtz all 5 feet and 100 pounds of her your first
impression is that she looks the part of your favorite
grandmother or aunt, not that of a spy or secret agent.
You'd have a hard time believing that she worked
on one of the most top-secret projects of World War
II and kept her mouth shut about it for more than
35 years.
She was ordered not to tell her parents, her husband
or her friends what her real war-time duties were.
It was an order that the U.S. Government first gave
her in 1941 and stood until 1976, when the govern-
ment officially released the fact that the Allies had
been decoding German military signals during the war
through "Operation Enigma" also know as "The
Ultra Secret." To put it simply, during the war the Allies
were stealing the mail of the German military.
Ann White was a senior at Wellesley College in
Massachusetts when the Japanese bombed Pearl Harbor
on Dec. 7, 1941. But unknowingly, she was already
aiding the war effort before that day.
A language major concentrating on German and
French, Ann, some other linguists, and a few mathema-
ticians were approached in the fall of 1941 by "some-
one in the Navy," she said. The man simply asked
the group if they wanted to work on a project solving
puzzles. She didn't realize until later that the FBI had
checked out everyone's background before they were
invited to join.
"We were just told it would be top secret and would
be vital for the country. That's all we were. given and
we were sworn to secrecy. It was just an act of faith to
accept the conditions. We knew we were going to be at
war someday, but this offer was very vague. Still, I had
a special talent for languages and wanted to help."
Ann volunteered for this unique "class" of 10
people who would meet once a week at night to learn
cryptoanalysis and solve alphabet puzzles in German
and Italian. Since Britian was already at war with Italy
and Germany, Ann figured right away the work had
something to do.with the war.
After Pearl Harbor, Ann continued working her
puzzles for the Navy, graduated in 1942 with a degree
in German, and was immediately sent to Washington,
D.C., to continue the job.

Anna Maria resident Anne Kurtz, nee White, as a
U.S. Navy WAVES ensign during World War II.
Even in Washington, however, the security
remained. "I, had an idea what we were doing, but I
had been told to keep my mouth shut. All I could tell
my parents was that I had a job in communications and
not to worry about me."
In September 1942, the Navy formed the Womens
Accepted Volunteer Emergency Service (WAVES).
Ann trained in Massachusetts, was commissioned an
ensign in the U.S. Navy and sent back to her job in
Washington, D.C.
"When I got commissioned, everything changed. I
went back to work and the first day I went into the office
and was told by my commanding officer that I was now
in the Navy and I would be shot if any leaks were traced
to me. The CCThinted that without our work, we could
lose the war and that thought struck home."
By now, Ann realized that her "puzzles" were actu-
ally the German military's orders and messages to its
various commanders on land and sea. Her job was to
decipher the meaning of the "puzzle" or "enigma" of
the code so the Allies -would know what the Germans
were planning.
The Germans used a cipher machine called
"Enigma" to send coded messages to its military units.
Because .the Enigma could make billions of combina-
tions of letters of the German alphabet, the Germans
thought its code could never be broken.
But it was.

In early 1939, the Polish Army had secretly obtained
an Enigma machine and turned it over to British intel-
ligence, which made a replica and sent it to the United
States also secretly, because the U.S. was still techni-
cally neutral at this time.
The British built the world's first computer at
Bletchley Park in England to unlock the secrets of
Enigma and shared those secrets with their Ameri-
can counterparts, even before the war engulfed the
United States.
It was "ultra" top secret work under penalty of
death, and Ann took her pledge of secrecy to heart.
Even though she roomed with two other WAVE
ensigns, neither worked on Enigma, and Ann had no
intention of talking about her job. For all intents and
purposes, she was in communications.
"We never talked about what we did. Our biggest
concern after work was getting enough food with
our ration coupons. I just told people I worked for
Navy Communications."
Even with that cover story, however, Ann was
pretty sure the FBI was keeping tabs on her.
"I remember our neighbor was always on her bal-
cony trying to hear our conversations and I was even
tailed by soWeone one night after I got off duty. I'm
positive the FBI spied on us daily. Our rooms were
probably bugged."
The Enigma was serious and deadly business.
Ann was trained in-firearms and worea .45 caliber
pistol on nights when she was the officer in charge,
although the Enigma encrypting offices were. sur-
rounded by fences and before anyone could access the
building, there were. two checkpoints heavily guarded
by armed Marines.
The Navy, however, wasn't taking any chances
that its secret would get to the Germans. Ann was.
told to shoot anyone who entered the building with-
out authorization.
But just cracking the Enigma code for one message
wasn't cause for a celebration party.
The Germans changed the code at least every
month, sometimes daily, so what combinations were
good on one day might be invalid the next day. Many.
times, occasionally for weeks on end, Ann and her
Enigma team were unable to decipher messages.
Those days were tough on Ann and her colleagues
because they knew those signals could easily be order-
ing a German submarine to a particular location to sink
Allied ships -- and Allied lives would be lost.
Ann was oi duty the night of June 5, 1944 early
morning on June 6 in Normandy, France.
"We decoded the German messages about the laid-
ings and we" learned from Enigma that the Germans
had intercepted a message to the French Underground
that the invasion would take place within 48 hours. The

Greatest Generation

15th German Army went on full alert. All we could do
was wait.
"We were a bit worried because 'this was it,' and
we thought the Germans would be ready, but the land-
ings succeeded."
From the messages she deciphered, Ann realized
the German 7th Army in Normandy, commanded by
legendary Field Marshall Erwin Rommell, was never
given the alert message from the 15th Army about
the invasion.
Through Enigma, Ann also knew that Rommell was
not in Normandy on D-Day, Field Marshall Gerd Von
Runstedt in Paris had no intention of asking Hitler for
reinforcements to stop the Allied landings, and that the
German High Command believed any landings in Nor-
mandy were just a ploy before the real invasion at the
Pas-de-Calais area near the France-Belgium border.
When the movie "The Longest Day" about the
D-Day invasion came out in 1962, Ann had to watch
with family and friends and not be able to tell anyone
that the Allies knew that same day how the German
Army reacted to the invasion. If she had talked, some-
one might have asked her how she knew, and she
couldn't tell them.
"So, I had to watch the movie and keep my mouth
shut," she remembered with a laugh.
One interesting message she decoded during the
war was that a German supply submarine known as
a "Milk Cow" was headed toward a rendezvous with
another German sub in the Atlantic. She even learned
the "Milk Cow" submarine commander's name and the
exact time and location of the rendezvous.
The Navy, however, calculated that if its planes and
ships bombed the supply sub when it surfaced in the
middle of nowhere, that would alert the Germans to the
fact that the Allies were reading their messages.
"So, they decided to let it go," Ann remembered.
Years later, around 1961, Ann and her naval officer
husband and children were stationed in Norfolk, Va.,
when her husband brought home a German naval offi-
cer and his wife for dinner.
Imagine Ann's surprise when she was introduced
to the German officer. It was the same man who had
commanded the "Milk Cow" that the Navy had almost
bombed out of existence.
"I was still under secrecy, so I couldn't tell him that
I already knew his name and what he did in the war. It
was quite strange. We eventually became friends with

he and his family, but I never told him what I knew."
Indeed, Ann never even told her husband, Naval
Officer Larry Kurtz, whom she married in 1944, about
Enigma, although she believes he guessed enough.
By the time the war in Europe ended in May
1945, Ann had been doing cryptoanalysis for almost
four years.
"When I was discharged, I was told that I still
could not talk about what I had done, not to anyone,"
she said.
Sadly, her parents died without knowing what she
actually did in the war. It wasn't until 1976 that the
"Ultra Secret" became public and the U.S. government
released her from her pledge.
After her wartime service, Ann's life was anything
but dull.
Ann and Larry lived the life of a Navy family,
including stints in Hawaii, California and Japan.
She had a son and daughter and earned her master's
and doctorate degrees in German and French. Ann
always took up teaching positions wherever her hus-
band was stationed.
In 1978, she accepted a job at a university in Iran,
which was then ruled by the Shah. She escaped the
Islamic revolution of 1979 on the last Pan Am flight

She is retired from teaching, but still gives talks

Unlike most part-time Islanders, Ann summers in
Anna Maria and takes her winters in North Carolina.
She has a daughter who lives in Tampa.
Her memories of her days on Operation Enigma
- (OP20G-M) in Naval terminology are as vivid
as ever.
"It was a great time. We all felt we were doing
something for our country. We didn't feel special or
heroic, it was just that we wanted to use our talents
to help the war effort. We were proud to do our
part, and I kept my vow of silence until the Enigma
became public."
One thing seems certain. If the government had told
Ann to keep her mouth ,shut forever about Enigma, this
story would never have been written.
Ann Kurtz is no longer a secret member of the
Greatest Generation.

"The Greatest Generation" column is for Island,
Longboat Key, Perico Island and Cortez veterans, man
or woman, who served in the armed forces of any allied
country (U.S., Canada, Britain, Holland, Norway,
France, Poland, Australia, New Zealand, the Philip-
pines, etc.) during World War II. We'd like to hear from
you. Please call Rick Catlin at 778-7978.

14 AUG. 2, 2006 M THE ISLANDER

AME's Hayes: New year, traffic flow

By Diana Bogan
Islander Reporter
Anna Maria Elementary School Principal Kathy
Hayes is ready to welcome the Island school's staff and
students Monday, Aug. 7.
Teachers are back on campus this week to pre-
pare for the school's open house Aug. 4. Hayes
said parents are encouraged to attend to meet new
staff members.
This will be the first time students and parents
will have an opportunity to see the renovation of
Building No. 9, a classroom wing from the former
facility, transformed now into the school's art and
music wing. The renovations were finished shortly
after summer break.
But due to an increase in student population,
music classes will not take place in the newly reno-
vated facility. An additional fifth-grade class will uti-
lize the music room, and music classes will be held
in the auditorium.

Hayes said it's the first time in a recent years, that
AME has had to add a 16th class of students, and that
moving music to the auditorium will actually benefit
the program.
"We had the option of moving music class to
an available portable, but found it more advanta-
geous to use the audio-visual equipment in the
auditorium to enhance the program," said Hayes.
"Much of what [music teacher Loryn Haber] does
is production oriented, it would be a much more
enhanced program."

New faces
With the growing number of fifth-grade students,
Hayes hired Jacque Goens, formerly of Rowlett Ele-
mentary School, to join Anne Kinnan and DeAnn Davis
to teach at that grade level.
Two new first-grade teachers also join the staff
this year: Becky Demo, who previously taught at
Ballard Elementary; and Lauren Waite, who has a

master's degree in elementary education and is an
Island resident.
AME's other first-grade teacher returns to school
with a new last name. Heather Bosch was married
during the summer her married name is Nyberg.
AME first-grade teacher Carly Carlsward also married
during the summer, but will not return to AME this
year, Hayes said, because she moved to Virginia with
her husband.
Coach Gene Burr will not return to AME this year
as he now has a full-time position at Kinnan Elementary
School. Filling the vacancy is Barry Borell, who moved
to the area from Ohio.
Some teachers are making grade changes. Kathy
Granstad moves from third- to second-grade; Phyllis
Omilak will loop with the students from her second-
grade class last year to third-grade; and Janie Ensworth
moves from fourth-grade to third-grade.

AME new year

Hayes also plans to hire a new teacher's aide as a
replacement for April Jonatzke. Jonatzke is now the
director of the Anna Maria Island Community Center's
TLC program, the before- and after-school program',
which is hosted at AME by the Center.

Traffic rules
The biggest thing Hayes said parents should
know for the new school year is how to manage the
traffic patterns.
Parents planning to drive their children to school
should enter the northern most driveway, which is the
one adjacent to the auditorium. Cars can queue up two
at a time, drop students off in front of the auditorium
and then exit the drive by making a right turn onto
Gulf Drive.
Hayes noted that the entry for the car loop is close
to the exit of the bus loop and parents should avoid
accidentally entering the bus loop exit.
To avoid traffic delays, there will be a right-turn
only policy when exiting the school during arrival and
dismissal times.
Holmes Beach Police Officer Pete Lannon, the
school's resource officer, will be at the crosswalk near
the bus loop on Gulf Drive to assist students who walk
or ride bikes to school. Hayes noted that Lannon will
not be directing traffic in the parent's car loop.
Bus riders will be dropped off at the gazebo and
then supervised on their walk over to the auditorium.
Students must arrive no later than 8 a.m.
for breakfast in the cafeteria.
Parents bringing students to the Center's before-
school program are welcome to use the southern-
most driveway, near the cafeteria, where the pro-
gram takes place.
Hayes said parents and visitors are welcome to park
anywhere they choose, including on the bus loop during
the school day.
There will no longer be parking in the field behind
the school.

2006-07 AME PTO officers elected

New Anna Maria Elementary Parent-Teacher
Organization officers are ready to take on their
responsibilities for the 2006-07 school year.
The new PTO President is Shannon Dell. Work-
ing with her will be Stacey Seagul, vice president;
Maggie Cucci continues as treasurer; Becky Walter,
assistant treasurer; and Trisha Hackworth, secretary.
One of the first projects for the new school
year is the sale of school supply packages during
back-to-school night Aug. 3. That will afford an
opportunity to meet the new board members, join
the PTO and sign up for a committee, said Dell.
Wednesday, Aug. 9, the PTO will co-host a
welcome breakfast for families new to the school
this year with AME Principal Kathy Hayes.
Over the summer vacation, the PTO allocated
funds raised at its May 2006 Spring Fling. The
PTO exceeded its $24,000 goal, raising $40,000

- its biggest success yet through ticket and auc-
tion sales.
The money is being spent on library and science
books, a large format laminator, a digital camera for
each grade level, and a laptop computer to replace
one used by the parent organization. Each teacher
will also be given a $200 stipend to purchase class-
room supplies. The remaining $3,800 was ear-
marked to provide some type of shade coverage
for the playground.
A cash call at the Spring Fling event raised an
additional $5,500 that has been designated for the
physical education program and athletic field. The
PTO is waiting for school board approval to pur-
chase a backstop and fencing for the refurbished
baseball field.
For more information about the PTO, call the
school office, 708-5525.

Anna Maria Elementary School will be following
the Manatee County School District dress code this
year. The following is a checklist of apparel and/or
items that should not be worn or brought to school:
Hats, visors, bandanas or other head apparel.
Visible, pierced-body jewelry other than worn
on the ear.
Cut-off pants or shorts.
Unbuckled belts.
Clothing that exposes the midriff.
Ill-fitting sweat pants or warm-ups.
Suspenders hanging down, including overalls.
Shirts advertising alcoholic beverages, drugs or
bearing questionable language or artwork.
Known gang-related symbols.
Spandex-type dresses.
Any clothing, accessories, jewelry or hair style

that may be a distraction to self or others that have
obscene or drug-related phrases therein.
Jeans with holes, cuts or slits above the knee.
Gym shorts or soccer shorts that are not proper length
(two-thirds of the length from waist to middle of knee).
Footwear not secured at the heel.
Electronic equipment to include, but not limited to
boombox, camera, CD player, camcorder, cell phones,
pagers and laser pointers.
Glass containers.
Male students choosing to wear a "net" shirt.must
also wear an undershirt or an overshirt that buttons. Tank
tops are allowed, but should not be loose around the
arms, and female students should be sure that straps cover
undergarments. Dresses should cover the entire back, and
the neckline should not plunge. Spandex skirts, shorts
and pants can only be worn if covered by an overgarment
of fingertip length. However, Spandex-type shorts and
trousers are not deemed appropriate for males.
For more information, call AME at 708-5525.

Endless summer winds down, school nears

By Kevin Cassidy
Islander Reporter
When the last day of school ends in late May, it's
hard to fathom how quickly summer vacation comes
and goes! Teachers (this writer included) will be back
at work for three days when your find yourself reading
this sports column, while kids in public schools get
started on Aug. 7.
Twenty or so kids made the best of their last days
of summer freedom by attending the second session
of the Bluewater School of Surfing surf camp held at
White Avenue beach in Holmes Beach, July 24-28.
Due to the fickle nature of the waves or no waves
on Florida's west coast, Bluewater owner-operator
William Kimball focuses on making sure the kids have
During the camp-ending award's ceremony, Kim-
ball reviewed some of the camp lessons by asking
questions of the camp participants. 'His final question
summed up the mission statement for Bluewater School
of Surfing: "Who is the best surfer?" Kimball screamed.
"The one who is having the most fun" came the chorus
from the kids!
Kimball and his local surfing instructors, Spencer
Carper, Kevin Kirn, Ben Handley, Joey Mattay and
Brandi Brady, taught the kids the surfing basics, includ-
ing how to paddle, stand up and ride, while also giving
them instruction on surf etiquette, how to purchase the
right surfboard, identifying the different types of waves
and what to do if you get caught in a rip tide.
In addition to the surfing lessons, the kids skim
boarded, had surfboard paddle relay races and played
dodge ball on the beach.
The campers were fortunate to get some glassy
little waves on July 27 so Bluewater held its camp surf-
ing contest on that day. The judges had a difficult time
separating the haves from the have nots as everyone
surfed extremely well. In fact, the top four tied for first
and had to go through a tiebreaker formula to determine
the first-through fourth-place winners in the contest.
Alexia "Electra" Yavalar came out on top to claim
the first-place trophy, while "Gnarly Charlie" Johnson

finished in second. Brooke "Fishy-Fishy" McIntosh
earned third place and some bragging rights in the
McIntosh family. It seems that "Fishy-Fishy" is the first
of the surfing Mclnfosh clan to have earned a trophy in
a surfing contest. This despite dad Brett and Uncle Scott
McIntosh being accomplished international surfers.
Tyler "San Diego" Yavalar earned fourth place,
ahead of fifth-place finisher "G.I. Joe" Phillips and
sixth-place finisher "William Wallace" Kaklis.
Logan "Horseshack" Reiber was succinct when
asked how the camp went for him. "Pretty good," he
stated. He quickly added, "Now I'm gonna ask my dad
for a surfboard."

Stokes tourney showcases

young golfers' new skills

By Billy Malfese
Islander Reporter
The first annual Bud Stokes Junior Golf Program
culminated its five-week course in beginner golf with
a tournament July 24 at the Pinebrook-Ironwood Golf
Club in Bradenton.
Steve Dietz, an 18-year PGA professional, taught
the fundamentals of golf to about 10 kids ages 8 to
13 in the course sponsored for the Anna Maria Island
Community Center.
"This year turned out great, I really think.these kids
learned a lot. Next year should be even better with more
kids and a year under our belt," said Dietz.
Dietz is the golf director and instructor at the Ben
Sutton Golf School in Sun City..
The tournament setup had the golfers split into two
teams of three, with the rules resembling a popular golf
format called "scramble."
Scramble 'consists of all the golfers on the same

team each taking a shot and whichever shot is deemed
the best is used as a starting point for the next shots.
The other golfers retrieve their balls and set them
next to the chosen ball.
All players shoot again, take the best shot from this
group and so on until the hole is made. The number of
times it takes to make the shot, using the best shot after
all players swing, is tallied.
The two teams of golfers were pretty even, with one
team shooting a 45 and the other 41 over the course of
nine holes played.
"I'm very pleased with how this program turned out this
year. Steve has taught the kids a great deal about the game of
golf and I am excited for next year," said Janet Stokes, wife
of the late Bud Stokes, for whom the program is named.
Stokes' sons, David and Tim, flew in from Michi-
gan to watch the tournament and see how the program

Tales of times past on Palma Sola Bay

Ah, the good old days!
Award-winning Islander cartoonist Jack Egan
offered the following from Charlie Jones, who grew up
in Manatee County and remembers the good old days
when time on the water wasn't so much a thing for fun
but an event to put food on the table. The following is
Charlie's recollection of one of those days spent on the
water just to the east of Anna Maria Island.

Memories: A day on Palma Sola Bay
The year is 1939. My older brother, Claude, is set-
ting up a fishing trip to our favorite spot the grouper
hole. We will get the 16-foot rowboat loaded for the 1-
mile trip: equipment includes fishing lines for grouper,
a quarter-inch grass rope for sharks, water, oranges, a
couple of mullet for bait and a cane pole to catch pin-
Before I start loading the boat, I must take care of
my pets. They're three raccoons, two grey foxes and a
3-foot alligator. They get their share of fresh fish and
Purina dog chow. I enter the 12 by 12 wire cage that I
built over a 10-foot oak tree stump, broke off during a
hurricane. This is the home for the raccoons when they
are not out playing. They have a spacious home in the
oak or in a hollow in the stump. -
Time to load the boat and get under way. Claude
will row the boat from our landing at Route 1, Braden-
ton, now known as Palma Sola Boulevard, non-stop, the
one mile to the grouper hole. He pulls on the oars in a
steady rhythm, the oar-locks rattling under his powerful
pulls. Claude, with his natural muscular build, broad
shoulders and well-developed upper body, makes the
boat skim along. We didn't lift weights in those days
- we worked.
Arriving at the fishing hole, I began to probe for tlhe
rocky bottom with a 10-foot piece of pipe. We want to
anchor very close to them. As I probed, I was holding
my right hand over the end of the pipe. Suddenly, I hit a
rock which was about 2 feet higher than the last probe.
The pipe cut a nice round hole in the palm of my hand
and I carry that scar to this day.
We anchor so that we can catch pinfish from the
bow of the boat and fish in the rocks from the stem. A
4- to 5-inch pinfish, or grunt, are the preferred food for
the black grouper, red grouper or occasional jewfish,

Everything You Need for Florida Fishing

now called Goliath grouper.
Our lines are set. The shark line is baited with two
mullet heads and a small fillet. It is set so that the tide
will keep the line taunt. We land several black grouper,
one red and a 15-20 pound jewfish. On this trip we will
not string the fish and tie them over the stem. The last
time out, a shark struck the stringer and made a quick,
easy meal of all the fish.
My job, other than fishing, is to keep the boat
bailed out and pull the anchor as quickly as I can if a
shark hits. Today is the day. Claude shouts, "We have
a shark!" Ijump to pull the anchor, staying low in the
boat to keep from being thrown out when the shark
gets to the end of the rope. I barely get the anchor off
the bottom when the boat lurches violently. I keep my
footing, my heart is pounding and Claude is sitting on
the bottom of the boat, holding onto the shark line. The
boat moves about 50 feet and the shark line goes slack
- did the rope break or did the leader, a 4-foot-long
dog chain, break?
The boat lurches violently again and the shark
breaches on the opposite side of the boat in a spray
of foam and water. About six feet of the shark comes
out of the water. This is pretty exciting for an 11-year-
old boy. At this point, the line broke. Upon inspection,
it separated where the chain was wired to the grass
We have a good catch. It's time to head home, clean
the fish and have a "good old southern fish fry" with
the family: fresh fish, grits, baked sweet potatoes, cole
slaw, milk, buttermilk or tea. All enjoy a wonderful
meal that only mother can prepare with her special
loving touch.

More Palma Sola memories
There's a wonderful little book that's-probably-
out of print now, titled "Around the Palma Sola Loop
with Fred Hall," a tale of the people who lived north of
Palma Sola Bay before and after the first world war.
It was a time of moonshine, mischief and struggles,
as people fought poverty, skeeters and sometimes each
other, but a community in the true sense of.the word.
As Fred puts it in the book's preface regarding
the area, "Truly a most unique community, composed
of high pine woods, swamps, hammocks, salt flats,
marshes, rivershore, bayous and bays, and an amalga-
mation of souls with a truly live-and-let-live conscience,
a wide variety of desirable and practical talents, with a
live-off-the-land-and-sca ability, plus a real compassion

for others, whether or not deserved."'
Below is an excerpt from that book.
"Palma Sola Bay was not inviting to the commer-
cial fisherman, although the- shallow mossy bottom
areas teemed with speckled, trout, which meant suc-
cess for the hook-and-line fisherman. Johnny Adams
made out fairly well as a trout fisherman, and poled his
14-foot cypress skiff to the Cortez fish house, and in the
best of times received 4 cents a pound for his catch.
"Sawfish of all sizes, from 14 inches to 14 feet,
ganged up, multiplied and played havoc with the net
fishermen in Palma Sola Bay. Should the fisherman
surround one or more bottom fish, the big one simply
tore up the net until nothing was left to salvage but the
cork and lead line, which meant many hours of hard,
dirty labor.
"Most any kid in Palma Sola would sell you a 6-
or 8- inch saw for a quarter, or a 4-foot specimen for
$4. Sawfish harvesting was not considered a profitable
"The bay did have its favorable characteristics.
Much of the bottom was literally paved with giant
cohog clams. Snook were easily caught or gigged. but
in those days snook %w ere scrap fish and not fit for the
table, and they were the prime enemy of mullet fisher-
men, as one 6-pound snook could and would make a.
man-sized hole in the gill net.
"Ma~N be the fact that Palma Sola Ba\ had more
stingra\ s per square foot than any other nearby) after r
was the reason so many and such large sawfish were
around. The fishermen said the saws lived on stingrays-
and clams."
Good stories, huh?

... and a sad story
Florida mystery readers will probably remember-
the Dairy Queen on U.S. 301 in Sarasota as immortal-
ized by Stuart Kaminsky in his Lew Fonesca novels. .
Well, it's all memories now. -
The fast-foot, slushy ice cream emporium closed
forever July 30 to make way for offices. Or condos. Or
something other than Blizzards. At its inceptriN. it wasz-:

It's all macs, all the time, everywhere, right now

By Capt. Mike Heistand
Mackerel fishing is the hot ticket right now, although
the nighttime shark catch is also pretty good.
Offshore action for grouper and snapper is excel- :
lent in the 100-plus depths, with trolling working the
best for the better hookups.
Inshore action for redfish has slowed, but trout and
catch-and-release snook are still a good target.
Capt. Zach Zacharias on the Dee-Jay II out of
Parrot Cove Marina said, "The summer snapper bite
is on inshore. Small pilchards or shrimp will produce
well. A trip last week produced about 50 mangrove
snapper to 17 inches and a number of juvenile gag grou-
per. Several snapper were also taken on small white jigs
and on fly gear with a closer minnow." He said that he
has also been catching catch-and-release snook to 30
inches, trout to 23 inches, scattered reds to 29 inches
along with big ladyfish and jack crevalle. "Bait is still

readily available this late into summer and the shrimp
are beginning to break out of peewee stage," he added,
plus "a respectable tarpon was hooked on a topwater
Mirrolure in Palma Sola Bay. The silver king was lurk-
ing beneath a school of frenzied ladyfish."
Bill Lowman at Island Discount Tackle at Catch-
ers Marina in Holmes Beach said offshore fishing is
excellent if you get out to better than the 100-foot or
more depths, with superb grouper and snapper catches.
Trolling is a good way to boat the big ones, Bill advised.
Inshore action is also good, with lots of mackerel, red-
fish and catch-and-release snook being caught. Snapper
fishing is starting to pick up, and nighttime shark fish-
ing is excellent right now.
Capt. Thorn Smith at Angler's Repair on Cortez
Road said he's been putting his charters onto trout and
redfish, most caught while wading and using artificial
Bob Kilb at the Rod & Reel Pier said fishing has
been good of late, -with lots of hookups of Spanish
mackerel, a few redfish, some small grouper and even
some rare hog fish.
Jesus Rosario at the Anna Maria City Pier
said fishers there are catching mackerel, snapper,
small sharks and snook at night, but mackerel are
the best bet.
Dave Johnson at Snead Island Crab House said
he's seeing lots of black drum by the docks and near
the Snead Island Boatworks. Mackerel are thick near

the Sunshine Skyway Bridge in Tampa Bay, and he's
hearing of some catch-and-release snook being caught
from Terra Ceia Bay. Boaters report that redfish are
getting hard to find, though.
Capt. Rick Gross on Fishy Business out of Catch-
ers Marina in Holmes Beach said he's catching lots
and lots of mackerel, and redfish are getting harder to
get, but bait is plentiful.
At Perico Island Bait and Tackle, reports include
lots of redfish being caught near Prices Key in Palma
Sola Bay by wade fishers, with the lower tides produc-
ing the better catches. Boating fishers are catching lots
of mackerel on the artificial reefs.
At Skyway Bait and Tackle, reports include "tons"
of mackerel by the Sunshine Skyway Bridge, plus small
sharks,.grouper, snapper and bluefish.
On my boat Magic, we caught mackerel to 33
inches, some 12-pound redfish, plus a few trout to 20
Good luck and good fishing.
