Politics pops at pre-election party


By Lisa Neff
Islander Reporter
Joey Monetti is seven years from regis-
tering to vote, but that didn't stop him from
cheerleading for candidates Oct. 20.
The 11-year-old, attending The Island-
er's Popcorn & Politics party outside the
newspaper office, touted several candidates
for office Nov. 2, including incumbent Man-
atee County Commissioner Carol Whitmore,
state legislative candidate Jim Boyd, Holmes
Beach Commissioner Sandy Haas-Martens
and a ballot favorite, dad and Holmes Beach
Commissioner John Monetti.
"I've never been in politics," Joey Mon-
etti said. "But my dad is. So I'm getting used
to it, and I like it a lot."
He waved a sign for Boyd, who is run-
ning against David Miner for the District 68
seat held by outgoing state Rep. Bill Gal-

Attorney

files claim in

drowning
By Rick Catlin
Islander Reporter
Anna Maria Mayor Fran Barford received
a claim from a Tampa law firm last week for
unspecified damages in the Aug. 12 drowning
of a 71-year-old woman caught in a rip tide
on the Anna Maria shore.
The mayor said she was surprised by the
letter sent by attorney Alan Wagner of the
Tampa firm of Wagner, Vaughan & McLaugh-
lin. She forwarded the claim to city attorney
Jim Dye and the Florida League of Cities for
"guidance."
Wagner alleged that the beach where Jose-
fina Pardo drowned and husband, 78-year-old
Alberto Pardo was injured Aug. 12 was "well
known to the city to be frequently unsafe due
to high currents and undertow."
"I am sure the city is well aware of the
danger to the public these rip currents pres-
ent. Despite this knowledge, the city held this
beach out to the public as a swimming area
and led the public to believe it was a safe,
designated swim area," Wagner alleged.
He claimed the city "owed a duty of care"
but "failed to warn the public, and the Pardos
especially, of the dangerous rip currents that
could frequent the area. As a result, Mr. Pardo
was injured and his wife was killed."
Wagner said the city should "consider this
our claim" under Florida statute.
The statute cited by Wagner for the claim
requires that the claimant first "presents the

Sandy Mattick, acting as vice chair of
Anna Maria's planning and zoning board,
had a difficult time opening the board's Oct.
19 meeting. She announced with emotion
that board chair Randall Stover died the pre-
vious day.
Mattick said Stover had met with county
administrator Ed Hunzeker for about an
hour Oct. 18 and seemed fine, although he
had been battling cancer of the saliva gland
the past few years.
"When he returned home, he told his
wife he was tired and wanted to sleep,"
Mattick said. He apparently died some time
during the night.
Mattick said, "We are all better for
having known him."
She said Stover's devotion to Anna
Maria was endless, and he volunteered to
serve the city right up to the end.
Board members and the public observed
a minute of silence in Stover's honor before
beginning the business meeting.

Pre-school site plan
Board members unanimously voted
to recommend to the city commission the
approval of a site-plan for a private pre-
school at 305 Pine Ave. after receiving
information from applicants Terry and
Becky Rozhon of Massachusetts.
Under the retail-office-residential plan

the Rozhons submitted in October 2009, they would
live above the school, while the downstairs would
be converted into classrooms. A play area outside
the structure would be fenced and distanced from
neighbors at the rear of the house.
Dan Gagne of Gagne Construction Inc., acting on
behalf of the applicants, submitted a larger site-plan
that made it easier for members to read, and reiter-
ated that there would be no on-site meal preparation.
Prepared meals would be purchased locally.
Gagne said he met with Kurt Lathrop of West
Manatee Fire Rescue, who told him he could either
add a sprinkler system to the downstairs or build a
fire-separation wall to meet the fire code.
Board member Tom Turner said if Gagne has that
in writing when he applies for a building permit, "We
are in a position to move this forward."
Gagne also clarified to the board that access
to the residence will be through existing stairways
inside and outside the building.
Member Mike Piscetelli was concerned about
parking at the school, but city planner Alan Gar-
rett said the plan meets the code requirement that
allows for two private vehicle spaces to meet parking
requirements.
"That's what makes this work," Garrett said. Ide-
ally, it's how ROR structures on Pine Avenue should
be built and occupied, he said, although city code
allows the residential portion of an ROR project to
be a rental unit.
There were no comments from the public. The
board voted unanimously to recommend approval
with the stipulations that no food preparation take
place at the school, a WMFR certificate be obtained
prior to applying for a building permit, and the fence
around the play area meet height requirements.

Work session
Board members were in a quandary about when
to schedule a work session to discuss establishing
two new land-use districts proposed by the commis-


sion under a comprehensive plan amendment that has
been transmitted to the Florida Department of Com-
munity Affairs.
The new districts are for a historical pier-use that
includes the city pier and Rod & Reel Pier and for a
marina use that would encompass Galati Marine and
a nearby spoil island in Bimini Bay.
The proposed Nov. 2 date for the work session is
the date of the general election and Mattick is a can-
didate for mayor. City clerk Alice Baird suggested the
board meet Nov. 9. That allows the city to swear in
the new mayor and commission Nov. 4, Baird said.
Mattick noted that, if elected mayor, she would
be required to resign from the board and could not
attend the Nov. 9 work session as a board member.
Baird said Commission Chair John Quam has
scheduled a joint commission-P&Z work session
for 6 p.m. Nov. 4, to determine which sections of
the land-development regulations need "immediate"
clarification and rewriting.
The new mayor and commissioners will be sworn
in at 5:30 p.m. Nov. 4, followed immediately by the
commission's organizational meeting to elect a chair
and establish its rules of order. The joint work ses-
sion would follow the organizational meeting, Baird
said.

Tax increment financing
Following a suggestion by some board members
at a prior P&Z meeting, Garrett provided informa-
tion about tax-increment financing for the business
district.
Essentially, these tax plans allow business owners
in the ROR to voluntarily increase their annual prop-
erty taxes, with the additional revenue targeted for
improvements in the ROR, such as street lights,
crosswalks and landscaping, Garrett said.
Other financing programs for a business district
are creation of a community development district or a
community redevelopment area, such as in Bradenton
Beach.
"Generally, those programs are for 'blighted'


areas," Garrett said.
Baird said when she was Bradenton Beach city
clerk, the city designated a blighted area, and received
a $500,000 federal grant for use in the CRA.
She said there was a lot of "grumbling" at the
time about the designation.
Turner said Pine Avenue isn't blighted and sug-
gested the city doesn't need such programs.
"We are a small community and the business dis-
trict is working just fine. I don't see the need," Turner
said.
Piscetelli said he'd like to know if the commis-
sion has any interest in pursuing such districts. Board
member Bob Barlow suggested inviting several busi-
ness owners to the board's Nov. 19 meeting to hear
their views on the issue. In the interim, Garrett said
he would further research the programs, and ask the
commission if there is any interest on its part for such
a plan.

claim in writing to the appropriate agency" prior to
any litigation.
The mayor added it is her understanding that,
other than a few feet at the water's edge, the far-
ther waters around the beaches are not part of Anna
Maria, but are controlled by Manatee County and/or
the state.
In late August, Anna Maria incorporated the near
waters extending out about five feet from the shore-
line into the city, along with the waters around and
under the city pier and Rod & Reel Pier. Those waters
previously were controlled by Manatee County and
the city's jurisdiction ended at the water's edge.
However, Manatee County informed the city two
years ago it did not want the jurisdiction, particu-
larly pertaining to issuance of dock permits and law
enforcement.
The annexation process took nearly two years,
but eventually the Florida Legislature passed a law
extending the city limits. The Anna Maria commis-
sion then approved the new boundary Aug. 25.

Anna Maria residents hoping for a quick decision
from Florida's 2nd District Court of Appeal in the
case of ex-Commissioner Harry Stoltzfus' challenge
to his recall and subsequent challenges are likely to
be disappointed.
According to the 2nd DCA clerk's office, the
appeal court is now waiting for "a response to the
response to the response to the
decision."
The clerk's office said any
decision by the DCA on the origi-
nal response from Stoltzfus to
the appeal court's Sept. 16 "show
cause" request is "not likely in the
,.f, next few days, maybe longer."
The delay, according to the
clerk's office, is that the court is
waiting for a response from attor-
ney Andrea Flynn Mogensen of
Citizens for Sunshine Inc., a trans-
parency in government organiza-
tion that intervened in the case.
Mogensen The series of responses
began Sept. 16 when the DCA
lifted the certification stay of the
results of the Sept. 7 recall vote, in
which Stoltzfus was recalled from
office 362-331.
Following that DCA ruling,
the election results were certified
Carter Sept. 20. Gene Aubry, who was
elected over Stoltzfus 363-333 in
the same Sept. 7 balloting, was sworn in Sept. 22 in as
an Anna Maria commissioner to serve the remainder


of Stoltzfus' two-year term. Stoltzfus was elected in
November 2009.
In its Sept. 16 decision, the DCA gave Stoltz-
fus 20 days to "show cause why (Stoltzfus') appeal
should not be dismissed."
On Aug. 27, Stoltzfus had appealed the circuit
court ruling that upheld the recall petition against
him and ordered the recall election to proceed.
Stoltzfus filed the requested response with the
DCA Oct. 6.
Mogensen, acting as an "intervenor" for Citizens
for Sunshine in the case, filed a response to Stoltzfus'
response Oct. 14.
Stoltzfus responded to the CFS response Oct. 18,
claiming that CFS had no authority under state law
to file a response and requested the DCA strike its
intervening response.
The 2nd DCA clerk's office said protocol now
allows Mogensen to respond to the response.
As of the Islander's press deadline on Oct. 23,
CFS had not filed a response.
The Stoltzfus recall began in March following a
public records request that resulted in the release of
more than 1,200 of Stoltzfus' personal e-mails per-
taining to government business.
The contents of those e-mails prompted Anna
Maria resident Bob Carter to form a Recall Com-
missioner Stoltzfus Committee and proceed through
the various legal steps required to recall Stoltzfus
from office.
Eventually, the committee's two recall peti-
tions were accepted as legally sufficient by the
circuit court and a recall election was ordered to
be held Sept. 7. On the same ballot, voters would
cast a vote for one of the two qualified candidates
to succeed Stoltzfus.

Registration fee set for BB anchorage


By Lisa Neff
Islander Reporter
Bradenton Beach commissioners Oct. 21 adopted
a resolution creating a registration requirement for
boaters who anchor for more than 24 hours in city
waters.
The unanimous vote established a $15 annual
registration fee, which city attorney Ricinda Perry
said was intended to cover processing costs, not serve
as a revenue-generator for the city.
Perry said the registration would serve as an
interim way to monitor sailors in the anchorage zone
pending a city decision on establishing an official
mooring or anchorage field south of the Historic
Bridge Street Pier.
"In the interests of the public's health, safety
and welfare, our chief feels it's necessary to ID what
vessels are using the city's waters," said Perry, who
worked on the registration application with Braden-
ton Beach Police Chief Sam Speciale.
With the registration, applicants will get a sticker
to affix to boats anchored in city waters, which extend
about 500 feet from the shoreline.
The form presented to commissioners consists of
two pages and asks for general identification details -
name, address, date of birth as well as details for the
boat and the types and numbers of pets on board.
Perry said the registration would make it easier
for city code and police officers to contact boaters
in an emergency, whether an approaching storm or a
sinking vessel.
In other business Oct. 21, the commission:
Approved a $5,750 payment to M.T. Causley
for planning department services.
Approved a $900 payment to LTA Engineers for
stormwater-related work and hired the firm to assist
with hazard-mitigation planning.
Approved a contract with Manatee County for
police department radio maintenance.

Mooring committee

struggles for launch
Bradenton Beach's mooring and anchorage com-
mittee hasn't gotten the wind it needs to set sail.
The committee was to attempt another re-launch
on Wednesday, but that meeting was canceled.
The advisory committee was asked late last spring
by the city commission to reconvene to examine the
possibility of establishing an official anchorage field
south of the Historic Bridge Street Pier. But the com-
mittee, meeting Oct. 7 for the first time in a couple
months, postponed any action until a later meeting
due to absent members.
The committee had four members present and a
quorum at city hall, but opted to postpone the elec-
tion of a chairman and secretary until there could be
a broader discussion.


Some of the committee members are part-time,
seasonal residents, explained committee member
and city commission candidate Michael Harrington,
who is organizing the next meeting, tentatively set
for early November.
The committee originally was formed to work on
a plan for a mooring field south of the pier, but com-
missioners and Mayor Bob Bartelt balked at accept-
ing a state grant to launch a mooring field.
Bartelt has said he'd like the committee to devote
time to studying the feasibility of an anchorage field,
which should be less costly for the city and less costly
and intrusive for boaters.
"Instead of having a mooring field with all these
fees, let's come up with a system where everyone can
work together and play together and live together,"
Bartelt said. "Let's investigate a managed anchor-
age.

Legislature policing authority of the water 500 feet
out from the shore.

P&Z recommends long police-rescue dock


By Lisa Neff
Islander Reporter
Bradenton Beach planners are recommending
city approval of a 238-foot dock to accommodate
Manatee County sheriff's and marine rescue opera-
tions from Coquina Beach Bayside.
The unanimous vote from the planning and
zoning board came Oct. 19 with stipulations, includ-
ing the suggestion that county officials work with
Bradenton Beach Police Chief Sam Speciale to find
space for the department's boat on the dock.
The board, as it recommended the city commis-
sion approve a special exception for the structure,
also stressed that the county cannot restrict public
access to the water in the area.
The city's planning department presented the
issue to the board because city regulations restrict
docks/piers to 65 feet in length. However, for envi-
ronmental reasons, the county needs a 238-foot-long
pier to accommodate its boats.
"The city has an ordinance against docks over 65
feet ... but in order for us to get out over the seagrass
beds, we have to go way out," said Darin Cushing,
the county's project manager for the headquarters and
the dock. He said the total size of the dock was about
2,750 square feet.
Shoreline Marine Construction of Largo is the
contractor for the project, which already has been
permitted by the Florida Department of Environmen-
tal Protection.
The dock will be used to hold eight boats, mostly
for the sheriff's office, which currently rents docking
facilities in Palmetto.
"The sheriff's office is very territorial about that
dock," Cushing said. "They paid for it out of their
budget."
"I can't speak for the sheriff's department, but
I know those discussions are already happening,"
Cushing said, referring to MCSO talks with BBPD.


P&Z members, discussing the special exception
application, said the increased law enforcement pres-
ence should benefit the city.
In other business during the board meeting, plan-


Bradenton Beach officials expect to see shore-
line improvements begin in February at the bay-
front Herb Dolan Park.
The work likely will coincide with other storm-
water improvements in the area, said city consultant
Lynn Burnett of LTA Engineers.
Burnett briefed city commissioners on the park
project during a meeting Oct. 21 at city hall, 107
Gulf Drive N.
The project involves shoreline enhancement
that will allow kayakers to launch from the site at
the east end of 25th Street, but also improve drain-
age in the area.
Earlier this fall, the city received bids from two

with a $30,000 grant from the Sarasota Bay Estuary
Program.
Marine Contracting was the low bidder at
$29,972, but subsequently withdrew. Woodruff

SBEP, as the city's partner, will recommend its
board approve Woodruff and Sons for the job and,
according to Burnett, also will increase funding to
cover the cost.
Woodruff will install a kayak launch and a
canoe/kayak rack for temporary holding.
The shoreline project is expected to begin in
mid-February.

Opnion


Go 'boo,' go vote
The timing of the general election week and Hal-
loween fall within the same weekly edition of The
Islander, so we find ourselves sharing frivolous and
grave matters.
For the frivolous, we hope you enjoy the Hallow-
een festivities of the Anna Maria Island Chamber of
Commerce-sponsored Trail of Treats that expands this
year to include businesses in all three cities, and The
Islander's canine costume contest, both Oct. 29. Next,
the Anna Maria Elementary School's fall festival, offer-
ing a great lunch, baked goods for sale and fun for all
ages Oct. 30.
For the grave matters, we have serious challenges
Nov. 2 in all three Island city elections, as well as fed-
eral, state and countywide offices and constitutional
amendments.
In Anna Maria, the choice between Sandy Mattick
and Mike Selby might appear uncomplicated to the
divided electorate.
But we believe Mattick can best administer and
lead the city. Selby's a likeable guy with business
experience, but Anna Maria runs on a pecking order,
and Selby just hasn't put in the time. Mattick's been
there, done that. And since this election comes with
some unwanted baggage, it's Selby who is carrying the
weight of vesting in ex-Commissioner Harry Stoltzfus'
cause and supporting Stoltzfus in the recall fight.
When Mattick says she's about "community,"
she fulfills all the aspects of involvement. She set the
benchmark high. And Selby is reluctant to face the
media or scrutiny.
We also believe Mattick can best perform the tran-
sition from the present administration to the future.
We recommend Sandy Mattick for Anna Maria
mayor.
In Bradenton Beach, we find a short-term incum-
bent who really put herself into the "job" in short order.
Jan Vosburgh was appointed to serve Ward 4 in June,
and she went to work meeting residents and business
owners and doing her homework. We quickly learned
to appreciate her business acumen and her cheerful
manner.
Challenger Michael Harrington also is likeable and
no less a novice in government service. He may have
done just as well at the job, but it was Vosburgh who
stepped up when the ward needed a replacement.
We recommend Jan Vosburgh be retained on the
Bradenton Beach Commission.
Holmes Beach sees a challenge to the status quo
this year from Jean Peelen. Her career as an attorney
has shaped her call to community service, and the city
would be lucky to have her for commissioner. But it

She faces two incumbents who see no complaints
and no need for change, Sandy Haas-Martens and John
Monetti. They may be right. But what we see is a stag-
nant commission.
We like Peelen's ideas for improvements in the
business district, to wrestle control of the public beach
from the county and her initiative would rightly benefit
the city. We hope she gets a chance to put her ideas
to work as either a future commissioner, adversary or
advocate.
We recommend retaining Sandy Haas-Martens
and John Monetti.
In other races on your ballot, we recommend retain-
ing Manatee County Commissioner Carol Whitmore.
Her opponent in the race, Sundae Knight, is suited for

the job, but we have no complaints with Whitmore's
job performance.
In the West Manatee Fire District race for three
seats on the commission, we see for the first time in a
long time a challenge to the status quo. But the chal-
lenge by three newcomers is apparently being orches-
trated by Holmes Beach Commissioner Al Robinson,
who has many arguments with how the fire district
operates. We don't support the tactics of Robinson to
wrestle control of the district with disinterested candi-
dates, but certainly Scott Ricci has the qualifications
to be beneficial to the board if elected.
Look on our website at www.islander.org for fur-
ther information on the Nov. 2 ballot measures.
Please, remember to vote Nov. 2.

Bothered at Bayfest
On Oct. 16, at Bayfest, we came upon a ven-
dor's van that had a sticker on the window that
read, "Snowbirds are back. Why don't we just shoot
them."
I asked a young man at the booth if it was his
van. He said yes.
I asked him if he knew how much the snowbirds
helped the natives survive with taxes, etcetera.
He said the sticker's a joke and not to read it if I
didn't like it.
Today, as I was writing a check for the Salvation
Army in Bradenton, I again thought of this young
man. Have you sent your check yet to the Salvation
Army?

Chamber gets wedding festival funding


By Rick Catlin
Islander Reporter
The Anna Maria Island Chamber of Commerce is
getting $10,000 in funding from the Manatee County
Tourist Development Council for the 2011 wedding
festival, but approval did not come without some hard
work by chamber officials.
At an Oct. 20 board meeting, chamber president
Mary Ann Brockman credited Deb Wing, the cham-
ber's executive assistant, and former board president
Mark Davis with assembling a business and market-
ing plan for the TDC that showed how the funding
would be used to target the Orlando area.
Wing said studies done from the first three festi-
vals show a large percent of attendees came from the
Orlando area for the one-day affair. With a two-day
festival, the plan is to turn those day-trippers into
"stay-overs," Wing said.
Wing and Davis made the presentation at the
TDC's Oct. 18 meeting and initially met some resis-
tance from several council members.
TDC board members Ed Chiles and David Teitel-
baum, however, backed the plan and made successful
pleas to other members for support.
New chamber board member Larry Chatt said
that when the funding request appeared to lose sup-
port among TDC members, "Chiles and Teitelbaum
brought it back and got it through."
Wing already has $15,000 in commitments from
sponsors and vendors for the 2011 festival, scheduled
for Feb. 26-27.
The festival began in 2008 with 371 registered
attendees. Last year, the festival drew more than 750
people.
In other matters discussed at the board meeting,
chair Cindy Thompson said initial reports indicate
Bayfest was a success. Actual figures will be avail-
able in November, she indicated.
"But we do know we will be able to award three
scholarships to deserving students," she said.

board meeting. Islander Photo: Rick Catlin

Manatee County administrator Ed Hunzeker
attended the meeting to announce the county is join-
ing the chamber.
Hunzeker said there was nothing new to report
on the Island trolley. The county plans to replace the
current trolleys with new, more fuel-efficient vehicles
that can withstand the rigors of the salt and sand gen-
erated on Anna Maria Island.
Brockman said the trolley advertisers are due a
refund from the trolley advertising program until the
new trolleys are up and running.
The annual installation of officers banquet
is scheduled to for 6 p.m. Monday, Nov. 8, at the
Key Royale Club, 700 Key Royale Drive, Holmes
Beach.
Five new board members won seats in the recent
election: Chatt, Lynn Zemmer, Eric Cairnes, Amy
Van Dell and Lois Gift.
In addition to the installation ceremonies, the
chamber will announce the winners of its business
awards, while the Rotary Club and the chamber will
present the "Business Person of the Year" award.

In the Oct. 25, 2000, issue of
The Islander, headlines announced:
Anna Maria public works director Anne Beck
said a memo written by Othe city clerk to Mayor
Gary Deffenbaugh asking that he restrict access to
the clerk's office after hours was upsetting because
it mentioned an increasing problem with the depart-
ment. Beck said the memo slighted her and the public
works department.
The Florida Windstorm Underwriting Asso-
ciation, created by the Legislature in 1970 to pro-
vide wind insurance for property owners unable to
obtain wind insurance, said premiums on Anna Maria
Island and other high-hazard coastal areas would rise
as much as 76 percent in the next year. However, a
FWUA spokesperson said owners could install storm
shutters and roof straps to reduce premiums.
Anna Maria resident Randall Graves, 53, was
arrested by Manatee County Sheriff's Office depu-
ties after he allegedly took a sledge hammer to a car
parked in front of his house and caused an estimated
$1,000 in damages. Deputies said Graves was upset
because the car was parked in his yard. He faced a
felony criminal mischief charge.

Bradenton Beach parking limits adjusted


By Lisa Neff
Islander Reporter
New signs are up on Bridge Street, where the city
has adjusted its parking restrictions.
The Bradenton Beach City Commission unani-
mously voted last month to set a three-hour limit on
public spaces on Bridge Street and put the enforce-
ment period from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. The prior limit was
two hours.
Bradenton Beach Police Chief Sam Speciale
sought the commission's review of parking limits
on Bridge Street, the city's central shopping district,
saying he needed direction before the start of the fall/


winter tourist season.
Parking in the area has long been an issue. Over
the years, business owners and city officials have
considered a variety of ways to expand parking
opportunities or reduce the need for parking spaces.
Most recently the focus has been on reconfiguring
city-owned property between Highland and Church
avenues to provide more public parking spaces, prob-
ably for employees in the area, and creating a park-
and-ride shuttle system from Cortez and Coquina
beaches to Bridge Street.
Additionally, city officials and members of the
Bridge Street Merchants have discussed stepping up

enforcement of public parking regulations on Bridge
Street, while increasing the time limit.
The commission, in addition to adjusting the time
limits, instructed the police department to "issue cita-
tions to any person parking on Bridge Street in excess
of three hours."

HB comfort station gets

another mural
The south side of the comfort station build-
ing near the soccer field by Holmes Beach City
Hall was painted with scenes depicting the past
spring's Founder's Day events.
Soon the station could have another mural.
At the Oct. 12 Holmes Beach City Commis-
sion meeting at city hall, Holmes Beach residents
Mark Boltwood, Joel Cocciolone and Chad Ruis
asked commissioners for financial support to
paint another mural.
The city again approved a $200 expense for
supplies and asked the three to submit a design.
The mural is nearing completion this week.
In other business, the city discussed a Mana-
tee County ordinance of Manatee County that
would create a film commissioner.
The ordinance would assist film companies
to produce motion pictures in certain areas of the
county.
"It has been a long time coming," Commis-
sioner John Monetti said.
Because Anna Maria and Cortez have been
destinations for some film companies, the ordi-
nance was of interest to the city.
The commission decided to back the ordi-
nance pending review by the city attorney.
The next commission meeting will be at 7
p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 26, at Holmes Beach City
Hall, 5801 Marina Drive.

Complaint against WMFR chiefs dismissed


By Rick Catlin
Islander Reporter
An internal investigation conducted by the West
Manatee Fire Rescue District Commission dismissed
a complaint by Holmes Beach Commissioner Al Rob-
inson that his constitutional right to free speech and
assembly were violated by WMFR Chief Andy Price
and Deputy Chief Brett Pollock.
Board member Larry Tyler
was appointed by WMFR District
Commission Chair John Rigney
to conduct the investigation of
the incident, which occurred at
WMFR's Sept. 8 stakeholder's
meeting at the Palma Sola Pres-
Robinson byterian Church. The meeting
was open to the public and some
W invited guests, and all were asked
to provide input on the district.
Tyler did not attend the
stakeholder's meeting and had no
prior knowledge of the events.
u Robinson alleged he did
Price not receive an invitation to the
stakeholder's meeting and was
"insulted" by this oversight because of his continu-
ing interest in WMFR. However, he attended the
meeting and reportedly spoke to attendees about
WMFR during a presentation. He allegedly passed
out a lengthy letter to those who attended about
wasteful spending by the WMFR, and said in a
loud voice that he "wasn't invited" and questioned
why he did not get an invitation, according to the
Tyler report.
Robinson claimed Price and Pollock tried to pre-
vent him from passing out his literature and denied
him the opportunity to speak to people at the meeting.
He alleged that Pollock told him that if he was there
to cause trouble "we'll have you put out of here."
Tyler said he interviewed all people involved
under oath, including Robinson, Pollock and Price.
He also interviewed one volunteer worker.
He spoke with several attendees in an effort to
"find out if anyone else had a complaint (against Price
r ---


and Pollock), but I didn't find any," Tyler said.
Everyone at the Sept. 8 meeting was asked to
put issues and comments in writing on a form pro-
vided by the district, Tyler reported. Those comments
were reviewed at the meeting. Attendees were given
the opportunity to speak and provide input. Tyler's
investigation determined that Robinson was allowed
to attend, but that he did not fill out a form and did
not ask openly to speak at the meeting.
Tyler presented a 70-page report and concluded
there was no evidence to substantiate Robinson's
allegations and, therefore, no viable complaint.
Board member Randy Cooper said Robinson's
actions were "regrettable," and the only apparent
reason for Robinson to attend the meeting was to
disrupt the proceedings.
"You should have been thrown out. You declined
to participate in the meeting and you disrupted it by
handing out your literature," Cooper said.
After reading Tyler's report, Cooper acknowl-
edged that Pollock and Price acted with "profession-
alism" and "patience" in a situation where it was clear
Robinson was attempting to be disruptive.
Following Tyler's presentation, the board voted
unanimously to reject Robinson's complaint.
Robinson has been a critic of the WMFR since
before his election to the Holmes Beach com-
mission and was once escorted by police from a
WMFR district commission meeting for disruptive
behavior.
At the WMFR Oct. 20 meeting, Robinson was
given the standard three minutes of public time to
speak on any issue.
He declined to talk about the investigation, and
said he was not there to "attack people" but to discuss
unfounded pension mandates. He had a large volume
of information that he said would take longer than
three minutes to present.
"The pension system is broken. The system will
bankrupt" the WMFR, he alleged.
That was a claim that Price, who had previously
been under a gag order not to address Robinson's


complaint, rejected.
"Our pension fund is

totally funded and there


is no unfunded liability and there has never been,"
Price said. "This is nonsense about any unfunded
pension."
He suggested Robinson get his facts correct
before passing out literature with incorrect financial
information.
Holmes Beach resident Pat McConnell also
spoke, offering a suggestion that WMFR should keep
its website updated to better inform people of meeting
dates, locations and other pertinent data regarding the
WMFR.
Cooper and Tyler agreed, and suggested that
once the administration staff moves to its new facil-
ity, Price ensure the computer staff keep the website
updated on a regular basis.

Moving from Station No. 1
Price said the new administration facility off
65th Street in Bradenton is about 80 percent com-
pleted and he anticipated the next board meeting
would be held there. The new building will con-
solidate all WMFR administrators into a central
location.
He said construction costs are still "below the
maximum contracted price," and furniture, equip-
ment, cabinets and computers should all be in place
by the November meeting.
Once WMFR begins operating the new facility,
remodeling of Station No. 1 in Holmes Beach will
begin, he said.
In other business, the board approved the second
reading of a change to the pension fund that will
allow WMFR to obtain additional state funds for the
pension plan at no cost to the WMFR plan.
Price also mentioned that the issue of consoli-
dating all county fire districts has been revived and
county officials have been discussing the matter at the
monthly council of government officials meeting.
Consolidation has been around for the past 25
years, he observed, and it's never moved beyond dis-
cussion.
"Until we get an unbiased study done, nothing is
going to be accomplished," Price said. The problem
is who will pay for the study, he asked.

kids fishing tournament
"If anybody wants to come down and help there's
always kids getting their lines tangled," he said.
Proceeds from last year's event were used to pur-
chase and install a light i under the pier and that's
probably how any proceeds from this year's tourna-
ment will be used.
"Rotten Ralph's says they're bait sales have been
real good since the light was installed," Spooner said.
"So we're hoping to get anther light. In addition to
attracting fish, it makes it look like an aquarium down
there."
Meanwhile, for children looking to learn to fish,
the Anna Maria Island Community Center, 407 Mag-
nolia Ave., Anna Maria, is hosting a series of classes
on Wednesday this month and next.

9
Reasons Mike Selby's Real Life Experiences
Uniquely Qualify Him to Lead Anna Maria Forward

Mike and his wife of 17 years, Mary, moved to the City of Anna Maria
not to make money, but because it's a very special place. Their passion
is preserving our city's unique legacy at all costs.
* As homeowners and taxpayers, they are dedicated stakeholders in our
city and its future.
* Mike appreciates that the City Commissioners are the mayor's "boss,"
and that he's answerable, first and foremost, to the people of Anna Maria
and not to any outside special interests. (Mike's opponent, as a member
of the Planning and Zoning Board, and her mother, Anna Maria City
Commissioner JoAnn Mattick, have voted consistently with development
interests on issues before the city.)
* Mike spent most of his career working with numerous city, county, and
state governments in matters relative to development. He understands
that there is a right way to make it all work to everyone's benefit.
* Anna Maria's annual budget is close to $2.5-million. Mike has over
thirty years of business experience, profitably managing multi-million
dollar budgets.
* Five diverse departments make Anna Maria work: Public Works, Legal,
Building, Planning, and Administration. Mike's business successes are
proof he has the experience and people skills to handle the day-to-day
problems of managing our city, full time.
* Since moving to Anna Maria seven years ago, Mike and Mary have a
history of dedicated, civic involvement in Roser Church, AMI Commu-
nity Center, Environmental Education Enhancement Committee, AMI
Historical Society, and the Code Enforcement Board.
* Mike is a graduate of Cal State with a degree in finance and a minor in
real estate. He proudly served our country in the Navy and is a Vietnam
War veteran.
* In his own words: "When I decided to run for Mayor, I considered the
time and commitment necessary to do the job properly. I take my com-
mitments very seriously, and as Mayor I will be 'hands on' as is necessary
to run the City and run it properly."

First woman captains Skullywag, Privateer crew


By Lisa Neff
Islander Reporter
Deby "Hun" Kuenderle added to her key ring
earlier this year.
For 2010-11, Kuenderle is the captain of the
Skullywag, the Anna Maria Island Privateers' ship
on wheels. So, she's now the keeper of the ship
ignition key, the ship door keys, the battery key
and the deck box keys.
"I stepped up," Kuenderle said in a recent
interview. She was elected captain over the
summer and assumed the job Aug. 1, at the start
of AMIP's 40th anniversary year. "Like they say
in the Disney movie: A ship has to have a captain.
I thought it would be fun. And I thought it would
be challenging."
The Palmetto resident is the first woman to
serve as captain. Two years ago, when she was
elected AMIP vice president, she was the first
woman to hold that post.

Island Privateers. Islander Photo: Lisa Neff

"All the women in the club were really for it,"
Kuenderle said of her decision to run for captain.
She had an easy time in the voting there was
no opposition.
To serve as captain is a big job. "Basically,"
Kuenderle said, "the captain oversees everything on

the ship, as well as the maintenance of the ship."
The ship's crew includes two lieutenants, a
navigator, a quartermaster and a ship's doctor.
To captain the Skullywag, Kuenderle didn't
need to add a new classification to her driver
license, but she had to learn to drive a bus.
The Skullywag is a refashioned, retooled
school bus.
"Fortunately I had horses and I drove big trucks
with trailers," Kuenderle said. "The ship is a little
bit different. Because it's an old school bus, the
wheels are under your butt. But it's not too hard,
getting the hang of it."
She's also picked up some skills under the
hood: "I've learned a lot about old bus parts."
Kuenderle joined AMIP about eight years ago.
"I was really looking for something to do," she
said. "Then I met this great group of people doing
really cool things for the Island. You get to dress
up as a pirate while you are running around doing
things for kids and community."
Before becoming captain, Kuenderle helped
care for AMIP's highly visible vehicle, which
often is moored at the Holmes Beach public works
yard.
"I helped take care of the ship for a long
time," she said. "And I drove it before I ran for the
office."
Her day-to-day car is a 2002 Toyota Avalon.
Her pet car is a 1979 Volkswagen Beetle. And her
weekend ride is a pirate ship on wheels.
"I like to drive," she explained.

Julie Aranibar.
Like Joey Monetti, many Popcorn & Politics
attendees arrived to The Islander to support their
favorite candidates, not to decide how to cast bal-
lots. A number of voters from Anna Maria attended
in campaign colors and gear white and blue shirts
for Selby and yellow and black shirts for Mattick.
Still, the candidates, in short speeches that alter-
nated with bluegrass tunes performed by The Hur-
ricanes, made appeals to pick up new votes.
Mattick emphasized her experience as a federal
employee and city board member, as well as in vol-
unteerism and business.
She also stressed her interest in being a full-time,
year-round mayor.
'This is the place we call home," she said, refer-
ring to the extended Mattick family
Seeking to further peace in a city with a repu-
tation for acrimonious politics, Mattick added, "I
will represent everyone equally, not a select few, not
special interests.... My door will always be open to
everyone.
Selby said he's a looking to go to work. "I want
to be the next mayor of Anna Maria," he said.
He said when he and wife Mary discussed his
candidacy, they agreed that if he became mayor he
would devote the next two years to the job.
Referring to intimations that with a second-home
in North Carolina he might be absent from the city,
Selby said, "I will be a full-time resident.... So you
can get that out of your mind."
He also emphasized a commitment to seeing
business prosper in Anna Maria.


"I'm pro-business," Selby said. "Enough said."
Selby said his goal is to "do what is best for the
city and all of the citizens."
Peelen, one of the first speakers at the forum,
lightheartedly told the crowd, "I've never run or held
political office ... which might work in my favor."
'There are things that need improvement" in
Holmes Beach, she said, adding that she's up to the
job.
Monetti, with his wife and children looking on,
said he was raised to give back to the community,
which is why he first ran for city office and is seeking
his third term.
He encouraged others to give back, too, whether
that involves holding elected office or cutting the
neighbor's lawn.
Haas-Martens stressed her passion for politics
and serving on the commission. "I just enjoy what I
do," said the veteran commissioner seeking her sev-

She added that Nov. 6 is her birthday and that
another election win would be a great present.
From Bradenton Beach, Harrington attended the
event but declined to speak.
Vosburgh, holding a campaign brochure high,
said she's a successful businessperson with the quali-
fications, time and interest to serve the city.
"I love Bradenton Beach," she said.
Bradenton Beach Mayor Bob Bartelt, who is
unopposed on election day, also addressed the crowd.
"I consider myself real fortunate to be part of Bra-
denton Beach," he said.
Whitmore reminded Popcorn & Politics attendees
of her roots she's a longtime Islander and former
mayor and commissioner from Holmes Beach.

Aranibar promised to focus on children and their

Boyd, stressing his fourth-generation Florida

In straw-polling unofficial voting in Island-
only races intended to be fun, not a prediction for

Selby and Vosburgh's tally was higher than Har-
rington's.
In the Holmes Beach poll, in which voters
selected two commissioners from the field of three,
Monetti received the highest number of votes, fol-
lowed by Peelen, who had just one more ballot than
did Haas-Martens.


M ELECT


MATTICK

FOR MAYOR


The City of Anna Maria is a true community. Within our City
we have smaller groups, such as our religious, business and
social communities, which work together to meet the needs of
our residents and visitors.

I chose my campaign motto because I believe I am living it.
My mother instilled a sense of community service in all her
children, and I have passed that down to my children. I have
spent the last seven years working hard for you; giving back.
No matter the outcome of this election, I will continue to serve
this community.

I would consider it a privilege to serve as your Mayor. If you
honor me with your vote, I will work hard to restore the sense
of community we all fell in love with when we first "discovered"
this City.

Please join me election night at the Waterfront Restaurant at
7:30 pm for a celebration of our community and all its residents.

Anna Maria mayoral


Two vie for Ward 4


candidates confident Bradenton Beach seat


By Rick Catlin
Islander Reporter
In the days before the Nov. 2 election for Anna
Maria mayor, Sandra Mattick and Mike Selby
expressed confidence they have the qualifications
needed to perform the duties of the office and asked
voters to elect them to the job.
Selby said with his 30 years in business, he has
the experience needed to run the city.
And he said any concern that he might spend the
summer at his North Carolina home is unfounded.
"I will be in the city as needed
to run the city, and run it well,"
Selby said.
He and his wife have their
North Carolina home up for sale in
anticipation of spending the next
two summers in Anna Maria, he
Mattick indicated.
SSelby also rejected any sug-
d gestion that he is "anti-business,"
t a noting it would not be good for
the city to have retail shops and
e i offices on Pine Avenue boarded up
n and closed.
t He said he had no "magic
Selby bullet" to solve the city's major
issue: Pine Avenue parking. Selby
pledged to work hard to find a compromise parking
solution acceptable to all sides of the issue.
Selby asked voters to consider the wealth of
experience he gained operating his own company
and dealing with all levels of government.
Mattick highlighted her government experience
as a solid qualification to be the city's next mayor.
She said she's acquired considerable experi-
ence the past seven years in how the city operates,
having served on the planning and zoning board since
2006 and having many of the comp-plan committee
meetings since 2004. She's also attended commis-
sion meetings, learned how a city functions under
its charter, state and federal regulations, and what a
comprehensive plan means for the city.
She noted her 16 years working for the federal
government in preparing budgets and working with
auditors was good experience for a mayor. Mattick
has been a small-business owner in the city and

Two Bradenton Beach residents are courting
voters as they campaign for the Ward 4 commission
seat in the southernmost Island city.
The election will take place Nov. 2, with voters
casting ballots from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. at Tingley
Memorial Library, 111 Second St. N.
Results of the race, the only Bradenton Beach
office to be decided in the midterm balloting, will
likely be posted outside the library soon after the
polling place closes on election day.
While both Michael Harrington and Janet
Vosburgh are running their first campaigns for elected
office, Vosburgh is the incumbent in the race. She was
appointed to represent Ward 4 in June, when Bob
Bartelt vacated the seat to serve as mayor following
Michael Pierce's resignation.
KVosburgh, who runs an

Island and formerly owned and
operated a furniture business in
Utah, said, "I feel so blessed to
live in Bradenton Beach.... I feel
it is my privilege and honor to
serve this community."


Harrington, who is retired
from careers in law enforcement
and management, said he decided
to run because "I feel my experi-
ence will be an asset to the city."
He promised voters "to
listen ... and act accordingly. It is
Vosburgh so important to listen to the people
that have elected you. They have
elected you as their representative. You should always
keep that in mind."
Harrington listed his top three priorities as main-
taining a balanced budget, "keeping the ambiance
as is" and dealing with the downtown parking prob-
lem.
Vosburgh's priority list includes keeping expenses
and taxes under control and protecting "property

Holmes Beach:

3 run for 2 seats
By Diana Bogan
Islander Reporter
Three years into life on the Island and there is
nothing holding Jean Peelen back from running for
elected office and serving her community.
This is the first year Peelen has been eligible here
to run for office, and Nov. 2 she challenges incum-
bents Sandy Haas-Martens and John Monetti for one
of two Holmes Beach city commission seats.
Peelen, a former civil rights attorney for the
federal government, believes she will lend Holmes
Beach a strong, new voice. She promises to "protect
the safety, well being and money of the citizens of
Holmes Beach."
In addition to working for the federal govern-
ment, which precluded her from serving her com-
munity as an elected official before, she also was
the chief of staff of the International Broadcasting
Bureau, where she managed a $20 million budget.
If elected, Peelen would like to see better col-
laboration between the three Island cities and more
input at the county level. "We as an Island are sup-
posed to be speaking with one voice on every issue
we possibly can," she said.
Sandy Haas-Martens is running for a seventh
consecutive term on the Holmes Beach City Com-
mission. She currently serves as the deputy mayor
and commission chair. If re-elected, she says she will
"continue to bring the stable government the citizens
have come to expect from their elected officials."
Haas-Martens is a retired banker who has
remained actively involved in the community. She
believes her banking background and involvement
with citizens has made her deeply aware of issues

2 candidates each

vie for 3 fire district

commission seats
By Diana Bogan
Islander Reporter
Incumbent Commissioners Mike Mulyck, Larry
Tyler and John Rigney each will face off against a
political newcomer, Scott Ricci, Michael Carleton
and Mondher Kobrosly, for three seats on the West
Manatee Fire Rescue District commission in the Nov.
2 general election.
Mulyck is an Anna Maria homeowner and has
been part of the fire and rescue service as a volunteer
for 18 years. He has a background in occupational
health and safety and has a record of dealing with
managing public services cost effectively.
"I am very familiar with the operations of the
fire and rescue services of WMFR," said Mulyck.
"To increase my ability to find solutions to the prob-
lems it faces, I have attended fire service seminars.
I am actively involved in implementation of a cost-
effective strategy for moving the department into the
future."
Fellow incumbent Larry Tyler also advocates for
"continuing to provide the best possible service at the
most reasonable cost."
Tyler spent 10 years as a human resource director
and labor negotiator of fire and police. He also has
served 13 years on the WMFR commission, having
held the positions of chair and secretary-treasurer -
adding to the fire experience with a city in Wisconsin
comparable in size to Bradenton. Tyler believes expe-
rience matters and makes him an ideal candidate for
another term as a WMFR commissioner.
Rigney, a certified firefighter and emergency medi-
cal technician worked as a firefighter at the Longboat
Key Fire Department for 24 years. He is seeking a


fourth term on the WMFR commission. He also is a
certified fire inspector, fire officer, pump operator, fire
instructor and has a fire science degree. "I've been
in the fire service since 1980, and I feel comfortable
knowing all the aspects of fire service."
"Mainly I want to make sure things keep moving
forward," Rigney said.
Mulyck's challenger, Scott Ricci, has been a
Holmes Beach resident for 16 years and, since retir-
ing as owner/operator of the Woodlands Golf Course,
now has time to become more involved in the com-
munity.
Ricci chose to run for office because he believes
it's time for "new blood" in the WMFR boardroom.
Ricci was a volunteer firefighter for more than 10
years and served as fire commissioner where he pre-
viously lived in New Hampshire.
"I'm a fiscal conservative in my business and
personal life and can work within a budget," said
Ricci. "I'll be a set of budget-minded fresh eyes on
that board. I feel that I have a lot to offer."
Carleton also is a Holmes Beach resident.
Although he has no experience as a firefighter, he
believes his business experience running his own
communication company, installing commercial
equipment such as two-way radios, gives him insight
into budgeting and cost-saving measures.
Carleton would like the opportunity to begin
turning around the problems with wasteful spending
and public safety that he sees at the WMFR district.
Carleton said it is crucial for voters to make a change
at WMFR.
Mondher Kobrosly declined to provide back-
ground information or a campaign position.

At.large commission

post on Island ballots
By Lisa Neff
Islander Reporter
Veteran officeholder Carol Whitmore faces a
challenge from rookie campaigner Sundae Lynn
Knight in the Nov. 2 race for at-large Manatee County
commissioner.
Whitmore, of Holmes Beach, has held the seat
for nearly four years. Prior to her election to county
office, she served as Holmes Beach mayor and city


commissioner.
"I decided to run for office because I love public
service," Whitmore said. "As someone who grew up
on the Island, on my own at the age of 15, I told
myself that I would make a better life for myself and
others if I made it. I have been a commissioner who


gets involved."


Knight


Whitmore


The Republican cites her
top priorities as encouraging the
creation of jobs "for the 13 percent
who are unemployed in Manatee
County," bringing more business
to the port and improving the
quality of health care in Manatee
County.
Whitmore said as a former
mayor and a four-year veteran on
the county board she's ready "to
hit the road running."
Knight, an engineer, said she
decided to run after learning how
many colleagues and friends had
lost their jobs in recent years.
"I became intensely aware that


local government was not doing enough to encourage
sustainable jobs in Manatee County and that many
of the actions and inactions of the commission actu-
ally chased away good jobs," said the Democrat from
Bradenton.
Her priorities, Knight said, are "to help create
more green-industry jobs, for the comprehensive
greening of Manatee County government to increase
efficiency and reduce costs and protect our environ-
mental resources. Attracting green-industry jobs to
Manatee County is key to stabilizing our economy
from cyclical 'boom and bust' sectors of construction,
real estate and tourism."
She promised voters that she has "the analytical
skills of a professional engineer, the passion for the
environment of anc n.-._'.v manager, the discipline
of a veteran and a desire to see Manatee County
become the sustainable industrial powerhouse of the
South."
Whitmore promised, "I will represent the entire
county. I have no hidden agenda except to make the
county the best. I will do it with professionalism and
work with all cities to keep up the good relationships
that I have established since being elected to office.
I will work hard to represent all."

understands the Pine Avenue parking issue from the
standpoint of both a business owner and a resident.
Mattick also pledged to work for a parking com-
promise agreeable to all sides of the issue. The wishes
of the voters who signed the recent parking initiative
can't be ignored, she said.
She addressed the concern of some voters that
her mother Jo Ann Mattick is a city commis-

Mattick said. The mayor, however, can't be a "con-
duit" to provide one commissioner with another com-
missioner's opinion, she acknowledged.
"That's a point I understand very well," she
said.
Mattick and her mother "don't always agree," she
said, pointing to differing views regarding the con-
servation and preservation comp plan amendments.
Additionally, some P&Z recommendations forwarded
to the commission that the younger Mattick favored
were rejected by her mother, including a variance
request for a dock permit.
Mattick said she is "pro-business," as every
elected official should be, but only as long as a busi-
ness or a business application does not interfere with
the rights of the residents and property owners of the
city. She said she was against a suggestion two years
ago that the city establish a separate "motel" district
for new accommodation projects.
She believes poorly written, unclear land-devel-
opment regulations that are subject to various inter-
pretations have caused the city some recent problems.

ment as possible."
Her promise, she said, is to "strive to maintain the
charm and uniqueness of Bradenton Beach. Please,
know I welcome your comments and concerns, and
I will try my hardest to respond to your issues in a
timely manner."
The ballot in Bradenton Beach also includes a
series of proposed changes to the city charter most
of the proposed amendments are intended to clarify
existing language in the document.
Mayor Bob Bartelt will be elected to hold the
office for two years with no opposition. Also, Ed
Straight, with no opposition, will replace Bob Con-
nors on the commission.

It's time to get those regulations rewritten to match
the comprehensive plan, she said.
Mattick said she has no "hidden agenda" as
mayor, but pledged to "always put the residents first
and maintain the single-family residential character
we all came her for.
Voters should have every confidence she will
effectively run the city as mayor.
She said it would be an "honor" and "privilege"
to be elected mayor. "I will not let you down."

Island citizens may be facing.
During her tenure on the commission, she claims
improvements such as canal dredging, street paving
and drainage. "I enjoy what I do," she said. "I enjoy
working with the staff and working with the citizens
and being involved."
John Monetti's involvement with city govern-
ment fits firmly with values instilled in him as a child.
So it was without hesitation that he agreed to vol-
unteer on the Holmes Beach Planning Commission
when asked.
After four years as a planning commissioner,
Monetti ran for elected office and won his first term
as a city commissioner.
He has served on the commission for four years
and Nov. 2 he seeks a third two-year term. He said if
re-elected, he would continue to provide a "common
sense approach to maintaining the beauty and balance
of our community."
A graduate of University of Notre Dame, Monetti
is general manager of the Columbia Restaurant on St.
Armands Circle. He is a 15-year resident of Holmes
Beach.
Monetti said he will continue to give back for
as long as fellow residents desire his fiscal acumen,
government experience and values.

Island DJ and AME parent Chris Grumley is
heading this year's fall fundraising event and will
be volunteering his time entertaining throughout the
day. Also providing music are the Island Rockers, all
students or former students at AME.
Grumley said this year there will be no outside
vendors at the Fall Festival. The board decided to
bring the festival back to its roots, offering what
Islanders have come to love best the haunted
house, bake sale and organized games.
Grumley said the biggest draw of the festival is
the haunted house. "We have more teen volunteers
from the Anna Maria Island Community Center this
year helping with the haunted house."
Jen Rodgers, an AME parent, is working to bring
in additional teen volunteers, said Grumley. "It's
wonderful because it frees up some of our longtime
parent and community volunteers who usually miss
the fun of the festival because they're busy running
the haunted house or other activities."
Food is another big draw of the festival. AME
parent and Sandbar Restaurant manager Joe Rodgers
will be heading up the food station with some new
menu items, but promises to provide plenty of kid-
friendly selections.
A bake sale will take place in the school's main
lobby. Parents donate the homemade goodies that are

sold and this year the classroom with the most dona-
tions will win a pizza party. The last day to donate
baked goods is Friday, Oct. 29.
Teachers also are donating food items. Each
year the teachers pledge to provide a dinner entree
for a silent auction. Keep your eyes peeled for an
auction board, usually near the bake sale, with meal
descriptions. Winning bidders will be able to work
out arrangements to collect their meals.
Grumley said there won't be a craft fair, pumpkin
patch or scarecrow auction. 'While we've been open
to those ideas and consider them each year, we felt
that any money raised should go direct to the PTO.
We wanted to focus on the fun and games our PTO
has done a great job providing year after year."
All the festival games will be on the field behind
the school. In addition to each classroom organizing a
game booth, there will be a rock wall, bounce house
and inflated slide. Game tickets will be available in
the caboose and students will have the opportunity to
win prize tickets at each game booth. Grumley said
the prize room is shaping up to be one of the best
ever.

THE ISLANDER 0 OCT. 27, 2010 0 23


Spooky Halloween weekend ahead


By Lisa Neff
Islander Reporter
The Anna Maria Island Chamber of Commerce
is working to make Halloween a three-day holiday
featuring some free events.
The chamber is keeping to its tradition of host-
ing the annual Trail of Treats on Friday afternoon
and c %.iiii'. which means the Island begins cel-
ebrating the holiday Oct. 29.
The chamber is inviting masquerading kids to its
annual costume contest at 3:30 p.m. at its headquar-
ters, 5313 Gulf Drive, Holmes Beach.
From the chamber, Halloween celebrants will
head out to participating local establishments to
collect treats. This year the trail will be extended
to include the business districts in Anna Maria and
Bradenton Beach.


For more information, call the office at 941-778-
1541.
Along the Trail of Treats, The Islander, with
Perks 4 Pet of Bradenton, will host the Crazy, Creepy,
Crawly Critter Party and Contest from 5 p.m. to 6
p.m.
Prizes from Perks 4 Pets will be offered for pets
in the scariest, most original and silliest costumes,
as well as dressed to win an owner-critter look-alike
contest. The pet store also will have giveaways.
Contestants will corral outside the office, 5404
Marina Drive, Holmes Beach, with judging sched-
uled for 5:30 p.m.
For more information, call the newspaper at 941-
778-7978.
The next day, Saturday, Oct. 30, the Anna Maria
Elementary School Parent-Teacher Organization


presents the Fall Festival featuring a class-by-class
costume parade along Gulf Drive and a host of activi-
ties at the school, 4700 Gulf Drive, Holmes Beach.
For more information, call AME at 941-708-
5525.
Also on Oct. 30, in northwest Bradenton, DeSoto
National Memorial on 75th Street West will hold its
second annual DeSoween: The Curse of the Tocobaga,
featuring a "family-friendly carnival and spooky trail
walk" from 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m.
For more information, call 941-792-0458.
Additionally, the Bradenton Marauders baseball
team will host a "Trunk or Treat" celebration at McK-
echnie Field from 4:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. Oct. 30.
For more information, call 941-747-3031.
Halloween arrives Sunday, Oct. 31, with trick-
or-treating in Island neighborhoods.


Tricks, treats, tips for kids, pets


It's almost Halloween, when _.__r.__'liii._' ghosts
and winsome witches will be darting from house
to house, business to business, collecting treats
and threatening tricks.
Some tips for a safe holiday...
Motorists:
Stay alert. Neighborhoods that don't nor-
mally have a lot of pedestrian and bicycle traffic
may experience an increase on Halloween and
over the weekend.
Remember that kids will be excited and
may be trying to visit as many houses as pos-
sible within a specific time frame. Trick-or-treat-
ers may suddenly dart into traffic from between
parked cars.
Be cautious in areas where cars are parked
along the side of the street.
Watch for children walking in the street,


especially if there are no sidewalks in the neighbor-
hood.
Be patient and slow down. Give children lots of
time to cross the street. Their costumes may impair
their ability to see and hear you, and to get out of your
way quickly.
Parents:
Purchase or make costumes that are light col-
ored and clearly visible to motorists.
Decorate or trim costumes with reflective tape
that will glow in the beam of a car's headlights.
Make sure costumes are short enough so they
don't cause children to trip or fall.
Masks should not impair a child's hearing or
field of vision. If necessary, enlarge ear and eye holes
or substitute makeup to create special effects. Tie hats
and scarves securely to prevent them from slipping
over children's eyes.


Children:
Stop, look and listen.
Get lots of treats.
If you plan to bring a pet along for the festivi-
ties, the American Society for the Prevention of
Cruelty to Animals offers these three tips:
No sweets. Several popular Halloween treats
are toxic to pets, especially dark chocolate or can-
dies containing the artificial sweetener Xylitol.
Watch for wrappers. Pets who ingest alu-
minum foil or cellophane wrappers can suffer
intestinal blockage.
Make smart costume choices. Be sure
the costume does not limit movement, hearing,
vision, breathing or the ability to bark and drink
water. Check for choking hazards and don't
forget to put reflective tape on your four-legged
ghoul.

HB youth seeks bike's return
Jake Ross says he never was more than 15 feet
from his silver Red Line bicycle Oct. 16.
So when he and his brother, along with friends,
went to leave the Holmes Beach skate park that after-
noon, he was surprised to find his bike missing.
"I was kind of in shock and couldn't believe it
was gone," Jake, 11, of Holmes Beach, said.
The Holmes Beach Police Department is inves- =
tigating the bicycle theft, including a review of
video surveillance tape from the park.
"The bike was a gift from my grandmother and
aunt," Jake said. "It was a nice bike and I really
liked it."
In addition to transportation to the park, the
bike was the child's transportation to Anna Maria
Elementary School.
For the thief, Jake had a question: "Why would
you take my bike?"
Jake's mother Lee also had a question: "How The bike a silver Red Line with a torn seat -
brazen could someone be to steal an 11-year-old's that was stolen from Holmes Beach resident Jake
bike as he was playing right near it?" Ross. Islander Photo: Courtesy Lee Ross

Center soccer teams jockey for playoff positions


By Kevin Cassidy
Islander Reporter
With the Anna Maria Island Community Cen-
ter's recreational soccer season heading into it's final
weeks, some teams are fighting for their playoff lives,
while others are fighting for a preferred position in
the standings to avoid a troublesome matchup in the
first playoff round.
There's been some movement in the standings,
but nothing like Division II where Southern Greens
went from battling for the division lead to last place
after dropping three games last week. Sparks Steel
Art is the team to beat, and Wash Family Construc-
tion has moved up to second place.
Fran Maxon Real Estate is undefeated and has
total control of Division III, while Autoway Ford
seized the top spot in Division I with a big victory
over Mike Norman Realty. Beach Bistro rode a pair
of victories over West Coast Surf Shop last week to
take the top spot in the Center's Premier Division,
where offense rules and much like the Big 12 Con-
ference in college football defense is optional.
The most recent victory for the Bistro came Oct.
23 over the Surf Shop. The difference in the 5-4 game
was the Bistro approach and the goal tending of Max
Miller, who made a few good saves against Helio
Gomez. Julius Gomes, despite playing with an injury,
scored three goals and set up two others by holding the
ball and forcing the Surf Shop defense to commit to
him. He set up teammates Eva Teitelbaum and Hunter
Parrish, who both finished with one goal. Gomez led
the Surf Shop with four goals in the loss.
The Bistro also earned a 5-3 victory over the Surf
Shop Oct. 18 with all five goals from Gomes. Gomez
again led the Surf Shop with three goals.
The Gathering Place earned its first victory of
the season Oct. 23 when it upset first-place Autoway
Ford by a 1-0 score in Division I action. Knox Wheels
notched the lone goal in the game to lead Gathering
Place in the win.
Autoway Ford earned an important Division I
victory Oct. 20 when it broke a first-place tie, soundly
defeating Mike Norman Realty 6-3. Henrik Brusso
and Sydney Cornell scored two goals apiece to lead
Autoway, which also received a goal each from Neil
Carper and Mikey Ellsworth in the victory. Michael
Duffman led Mike Norman with three goals.

Sparks Steel Art gave its Division II foes some
hope that they can still be caught with a 2-2 tie by Mr.
Bones BBQ Oct. 22. Tyler Yavalar scored two goals
to lead Sparks, while Ben Connors did the same for
Mr. Bones in the tie.
Wash Family Construction moved into second
place in the division thanks to a 5-4 victory over
Southern Greens Oct. 22. Nico Calleja and Gavin
Sentman led the way with two goals apiece, while
Joe Rogers chipped in with one goal in the victory.
Michael Latimer led Southern Greens with three
goals, while Brandon Mills added one goal.
Sparks Steel Art scored an easy 5-2 win over
Wash Family Construction Oct. 20 behind two goals
apiece from Tyler Yavalar and Dylan Joseph. Sulli-
van Ferreira completed the scoring with one goal in
the victory. Gavin Sentman scored two goals to lead
WFC in the loss.
Mr. Bones opened the Division II action Oct. 18
with a 5-3 victory over Southern Greens. Ben Con-
nors led the way with two goals, while Miles Fischer,


Jake Miller and Leo Rose each added single goals
in the victory. Michael Latimer scored twice to lead
Southern Greens, which also received a goal from
Abby Achor in the loss.
Connie's Landscaping earned a solid 5-2 victory
over Jessie's Island Store Oct. 23. Corbin Greg, who
usually plays a lot in goal, came out of the box on
this day and led Connie's to victory with four goals.
Jaclyn Schlossberg completed the scoring with one
goal in the victory. Hannah McCracken scored two
goals to lead Jessie's in the loss.
Fran Maxon Real Estate earned another victory in
Division III, a 4-2 win over Jessie's Island Store Oct.
22. Taro de Haan led the way with a pair of goals,
while Josh Class and Ava Zink each added one goal
in the victory. Hannah McCracken and Jack Barnes
each scored one goal for Jessie's in the loss.
De Haan scored three goals to lead Fran Maxon
Real Estate to a 3-0 victory over Connie's Landscap-
ing Oct. 20.
The Center's adult division saw two teams leap-
frog the Sun in the standings after a 4-2 dropped deci-
sion by the Sun to Sarasota Veterinary Emergency
Hospital Oct. 21. Toby Wickland scored a pair of
goals to lead SVEH, which also received a goal
apiece from Kris Yavalar and Paul Hayward in the
victory. Zoran Kolega had two goals for the Sun.
Enrico Beissert notched three goals to lead Beach
to Bay Construction to a 5-3 victory over Back Alley.
Scott Eason and Tony Frudakis each scored one goal
to complete the scoring for BTBC. Nate Talucci led
Back Alley with a pair of goals, while Tim Tedesco
added one goal in the loss.
The Fish Hole rolled past Ross Built by a 5-0
score behind two goals apiece from Josh Sato and
Brent Moss. Ed Moss added a single goal to complete
the scoring in the shutout victory.
Center soccer scores and schedules can be found

was the team of Jane Winegarden, Nell Bergstrom,
Earl Huntzinger and Fred Meyer with a 52.
The men played an 18-hole, two-best-balls-of-

combined to card a 108 to take first place by three
shots.
The women played a nine-hole, individual-low-
net match Oct. 19 that resulted in a tie for first place

Fishing's great, weather too, stone


Fishing and great weather go hand in hand in the
waters around Anna Maria Island, but the stone crab
season has seen a somewhat mediocre start. One crab-
ber reported seeing too many octopus in the traps, a
sign the crabs are "holed up." A little shake up in the
waters is apparently needed to get the bottom-feeders
moving from their hiding holes.
Capt. Anthony Manali of Legmakr Fishing
Team in Anna Maria said his stone crab season
started off "fair." Manali also said he needs some
weather to "stir it up." Manali said he's looking for-
ward to rougher conditions to get crabs moving. Also
with the full moon, the crabs slowed down. It was too
light out at night for them to be moving.
"All in all, it was a fair start," he said.
"There's a few octopus, which is a good sign.
Too many isn't good. Prices are holding up good
because the demand is high, and there's no stock
leftover from last year the winter was too cold to
produce any overstock.
"I'm getting $10 a pound for medium claws and
up to $15 for jumbos. I have a wholesale and retail
license, so I do a little better than the guys who sell
to the fish houses.
"Also, last year and last couple of years, the
Cedar Key crabbers had a great catch, but they're
not really killing them this year. That makes the price
good for everybody," Manali said.
According to James "Wyre" Lee at Cortez Bait
and Seafood on the docks in Cortez, the slow start to
stone crab season means slightly higher prices at the
market, but there's still some good eating to be had.
"We need a good cold front and some rough water to
get the crabs moving and feeding," Lee said. "When the
weather turns to crap, the crabbing picks up."
Capt. Larry McGuire of Show Me the Fish
Charters reports his offshore charters are catching
some "really nice red snapper on the weekends along
with big red and gag grouper, amberjack, kingfish,
big sharks and monster mangrove snapper. On some
days, they're jumping in the boat. Even a caveman
could catch them."
He said the best action is out past 100 feet with

live pinfish and sardines for bait. Closer in, around 1
or 2 miles off the beach, there is "Spanish mackerel
madness" all you want to catch -a variety of
sharks and a few cobia. Gag grouper are continuing to
move closer, now in around 50 to 70 feet of water, as
the water temperature cools. "Gag grouper are one of
my favorites and are coming home for the holidays,"
he said.
Capt. Mark Howard of SumoTime Fishing
Charters reports his clients have "experienced some
of the best fishing and tackle busting action Anna
Maria Island has to offer" the past week. He's con-
centrated efforts off the beach and the artificial reefs
in our local waters.
The Spanish mackerel bite has been phenom-
enal, Howard said. With a live well "blacked out"
full of shiners, we have been anchoring just off the
structure of the artificial reefs and chumming to draw
the marauding schools of mackerel close to the boat.
I .ig a 50-pound leader and a long silver shank
hook, I've been hooking the shiners behind the pec-
toral-fin joint. The hook should just fit right in where
the fin meets the body. Catches of 50-plus fish have
been the standard." Howard also has been seeing
a variety of species with the mackerel kingfish,
cobia, tarpon and bonita to mix up the action.
"For these fish, an upgrade to a bigger pole would
be a wise choice," he said. "Sharks have made a huge
showing in the mackerel areas some big ones.
Black tips and spinner sharks averaging 6 feet and
120 pounds have readily gobbled up chunks of mack-
erel and bonitas."

crabs 'holed up'
Tackle said customers are reporting redfish being
caught in Perico Bay. "A 27-inch one was pulled off
the oyster bed using live select shrimp for bait."
She said reports came in of schools of Spanish
mackerel and bonito 1/2 mile out of Longboat Pass in
approximately 20 feet of water. Customers at Annie's
said they had been drift-fishing toward Bradenton
Beach, using live shrimp and shad. "They were get-
ting hits on every cast and had a lot of fun," she
said.
Reports are coming into Annie's of a lot of redfish
in Sarasota Bay, but they are oversized, she said.
Tom Cassetty from the Rod & Reel Pier said
they're seeing plenty of black drum and flounder
caught on shiners and shrimp and mackerel is coming
to the docks on jigs and spoons.
Capt. Warren Girle reported offshore seeing
a few kingfish. He predicts the kingfish catch will
improve with a couple more cold fronts. He was
seeing mackerel everywhere to 5 pounds, grouper
and snapper and a nice flounder bite around the
artificial reefs. Inshore, Girle said redfish and black
drum were showing up in good numbers and his
charters saw limits of trout every trip from the
grass flats in 3-5 feet of water. Girle said they saw
some excitement two days ago when they got into
some sharks offshore, 2-5 footers attacking their
macks.
At Island Discount Tackle in Holmes Beach,
Jonny Keyes said fishers who want to work off the
beaches from the shore can still target jacks, Spanish
mackerel and lady fish. Working the shore from the
bayside, wading or from docks, Keyes said fishers
are catching plenty of keeper redfish, and the canals
are loaded with big trout. He recommended using a
suspending lure, which also works well for the red-
fish.
Boaters can look to the nearshore reefs for cobia
kingfish, bonita, sharks and Spanish mackerel and a
good way to target those is shiners and cut bait, Keyes
said.
Offshore, fishers are targeting red snapper on the
weekends, gag grouper and cobia and some nice-size
kingfish are showing up.
He said this week we'll have nice, deep tides and
the fishing will improve with the wane of the full
moon. He recommended fishers should target their
prey on the early, incoming tide.
Capt. Steve Salgado of Compleat Angler said
he's seeing plenty of redfish and snook, a real good
trout bite and a mixed bag of all sizes and plenty of
white bait.
Offshore, Salgado said he's "seeing plenty of
grouper and snapper in "50-60-70 feet of water."
Capt. Mike Greig said he he saw a good week
with "some redfish, a bunch of trout, sharks, macks
and bonita" coming on the hook.
