By Mark Young Islander Reporter A 15-member panel of Florida Department of Law Enforcement members and medical examiners met in Avon Park Sept. 19 to review the 2009 death investigation of Sheena Morris. Morris, 25, was found dead New Years Day at the BridgeWalk Resort in Bradenton Beach. The case was initially ruled a suicide by District 12 medical examiner Dr. Russell Vega, but was changed in 2011. Morris mother, Kelly Osborn, hired Dr. Michael Berkland, who convinced Vega to change the cause of death from suicide to undetermined based on his review of crime scene photos. It was Berklands opinion that the crime scene could have been staged. Berkland has since fallen under scrutiny after a Pensacola storage unit he was renting was found to contain a number of human organs being preserved in household containers. Berklands reputation was further tarnished when it was revealed he duties. The FDLE team, as well as medical examiners from the 5th and 10th districts found no fault with Bradenton Beach Police Detective Leonard Diazs investigation. Vega also was at the Sept. 9 review, but attended as an observer and to answer questions from the FDLE SMART Panel, as to why he felt the cause of death needed to be changed. His responses were confidential, although the information may become public at a later date. Morris was found hanging by a dog leash Fundraising, spending, sign regs, more.

The letter notes that Duennes had previously advised Shaffer of his termination by telephone the afternoon of Sept. 18 and, in accordance with Section XIV, the mayor has concurred with this decision. The section referenced by the letter is from the handbooks discipline policy, which lists one type of discipline as termination. It also provides that a department head, with the mayors concurrence, has the authority to terminate an employee. During the Sept. 18 talk with The Islander, Duennes emphasized Shaffer had not offered his resignation and expected hed make his decision upon his return, or call during his vacation. Shaffer scheduled the time off about a month ago, Duennes said. Without him around here, Im pretty much overloaded, Duennes added. If Bob leaves Ill be disappointed. Hes a great guy. Its really a shame. Hed give the shirt off his back. Shaffers departure comes at a time when the building department has been deluged with public records requests and questioned about its practices by Commissioner Jean Peelen, as well as commission candidate Judy Holmes Titsworth and others. Titsworth criticized the mayor and building department for failing to enforce the building code and suggested the city consider an outside consultant be contracted for plan reviews, applications and inspections. Peelen released a report Aug. 14 claiming a lax land development code not staff had led to construction of large out-of-scale homes and illegal use of groundlevel enclosures. In the same report she called for the demotion of the building inspector. Shaffer and Duennes have defended the accusations, saying new construction has been in accordance with city codes and the state building code. Mayor Rich Bohnenberger defended the department department underwent two audits with positive results, plans review and inspections. Former Holmes Beach public works superintendent John Fernandez, recently retired as a Longboat Key buildhelping Duennes with inspections and plan reviews. Fernandez said he has worked about 37 hours per month for the city. He retired recently from his position with Longboat Key, and told The Islander he would decline a full-time job if its offered by Holmes Beach. Neither Bohnenberger nor Shaffer returned calls for comment.AM committee focuses on historical elementsSissy Quinn, left, chair of the Anna Maria Historical Preservation Committee and committee secretary Maureen McCormick check the calendar at the conclusion of a Sept. 18 meeting. Islander Photo: Rick Catlin By Rick Catlin Islander Reporter The Anna Maria Historical Preservation Committee decided Sept. 18 to focus on establishing the requirements needed to get the committee recognized by the local government. Once thats accomplished, the committee can write an ordinance with criteria for designating historic sites, particularly older homes, and establishing incentives for owners to retain ground-level homes. Chair Sissy Quinn has long been worried that developers are buying up older ground-level homes and replacing them with elevated homes with multiple bedrooms ary lines for districts and individual properties. Committee member George Barford said Anna Maria is too small to establish districts for historical inclusion, but city planner Alan Garrett said it is a state requirement. This is just boiler-plate stuff anyway, said building Still, Barford was concerned that some people might ervation ordinance for commission consideration. The ordinance is seen as a tool allowing property without meeting the Federal Emergency Management below the base level elevation of 8 feet six inches would cost 50 percent or more of its structure value to remodel, the house must be demolished and the living space must be elevated to the minimum BLE. The preservation ordinance would establish criteria for a historical designation, how to handle variance requests, how to deal with economic hardships, incentives for an owner to keep a ground-level home, and a number of other procedures. Commissioner SueLynn, the commission liaison to the committee, said the goal of the committee is to retain ground-level homes in the city that give Anna Maria its old-Florida atmosphere.

Opinion YourReal AMI Ive spent the past 12 Februarys on Anna Maria Island, in all three cities, and I plan to be back. I follow some of the issues, and heres my opinion on one: I describe Anna Maria Island as one of the last Gulf islands where real people live. Theres a supermarket, hardware and drug stores and other shops, a library and a few places where one can eat without getting a second mortgage. Its a relatively quiet, laid-back place, and by 9 p.m. it is mostly silent. Its not Disney World, and Im grateful for that. Older, ground-level homes on spacious lots or clustered informally give some neighborhoods the comfortable old-Florida look. However, FEMA guidelines have helped to spawn a new-Florida look, with elevated houses painted in vivid pastels, while skyrocketing land prices cause them to be crammed together. Some of these have become bloated to accommodate more than one family, so that parking and noise have become problems for neighbors. The islands spectacular beaches and moderate weather have always attracted tourists and snowbirds like me, but in the past there was some balance. That seems to be vanishing. The increasing number of vacation and rental properties is changing Anna Maria Islands ambiance to the detriment of its dwindling number of residents. In the end, it may become a sort of pseudo-Florida resort where the workers cant afford to live or even want to. Im glad Ive had the opportunity to enjoy the real Anna Maria before its gone. High-rise future? Interesting newspaper this past week. On one hand: The HB mayor states, there is no crises in the city and our founding fathers expected at least 50 percent rental in the Residential-2 zone. (Really?) Anna Maria Coalition farcically claims its size that matters to residents; all we need are good neighbor policies. On the other hand, the lax interpretation of the Federal Emergency Management Agency 50 percent rule is being openly challenged. The Islander editorial alluded to the need to embrace the future, resolve and solve matters in city codes to prevent future problems. The elephant (Where are the residents?): Until recently, the R-2 district duplexes were owned was a real residential area. Today, R-2 is rapidly losing its residential hue. It is well on its way to becoming a purely commercial district of vacation rentals, owned by countless LLCs. There will be no residents. Would you want to live in the middle of Beach Party City? week) is Real, Authentic Florida. yet here we are on a path that turns away from that brand and logically could convert us to an island of high-rise structures in the future. What will be the brand of the future? Welcome to the West Coast Version of the East Coast, or will we remain the Real, Authentic Florida. We must act! The everything is OK attitude is a pathway to oblivion. Bob Johnson, Holmes Beach Welcome, new season signals the trickle down of winter friends snowbirds, as we affectionately know them. But guess what with the migration of so many summer to cooler climates, including summer in North Carolina, we now have a fall season. Welcome back, fall friends! With the myriad complaints about too many guests in this house or that and too much noise coming from the pool or too many cars parked here and there, we noted a quiet, painfully slow September for business. tell from watching brief periods of television only to be inundated with national and state campaign ads. Once again, however, we found ourselves with almost no one but incumbents save one newcomer in two of the three Island cities. Its sad to note, but we lack the likes of the late Holmes Beach Commissioner Don Maloney, a strong advocate of the election process who surely would have thrown his hat in the ring just to ensure a race. We were sorry to note Anna Maria Mayor Mike Selby opted not to seek a second term, and equally disappointed that no ran for his seat. commissioners will be elected vice mayor and immeThat will result in a vacant commission seat, which will be appointed by the remaining four members. Lets just call it musical chairs. In Bradenton Beach, we have two incumbents with no opposition and both are automatically returned to Then theres Holmes Beach, with a hotly contested race for incumbent Mayor Rich Bohnenbergers seat and the commission seats held by Sandy Haas-Martens and John Monetti. This city has an election. Challengers political newcomers all Judy Holmes Titsworth, great-granddaugter of the citys namesake, and Marvin Grossman are vying for the two seats on the commission, and Carmel Monti is looking to unseat the mayor. This should hold your interest, as the local political pundits seem to feel theres much at stake no matter which way it goes. Hello fall. Hello election. Hello winter friends. This and relief from temps in the 90s is just what weve been waiting for.

Cosby has been acting chief for two weeks while Speciale was hospitalized due to illness. Speciale is expected to miss another week of work, but should return around Our goal once we receive those recommendations is to ask FDLE for their assistance in our investigation, said Cosby. There has a been an appearance that BBPD has stood alone in this case, and we want to make sure that we dont have anyone saying this was a one-sided deal when we close this case again. Cosby said the review process also consisted of SMART members using Osborns website, Justice for Sheena, where the family lists its primary concerns with the investigation, as well as their own theories. They had that site pulled up through the entire review process and asked questions relating to the familys concerns, he said. So the familys concerns were addressed in the process and one of our goals is to address the familys concerns to the best of our ability. Osborn expressed frustration that she continues to be updated by the media, rather than law enforcement, but case was poorly investigated in its recommendation. not see the mishandling of the domestic violence call, not questioning our family, Sheenas friends and most importantly the boyfriend, who was involved in the dispute, said Osborn. Osborn has consistently criticized the way the initial call to police was handled, and has called it a domestic violence case. BBPD maintains the call was not a domestic violence-related call, rather another resort guest making a call to complain of loud voices. Police responded to the BridgeWalk Resort and reported observing the boyfriend calmly leaving the scene. them no physical violence had occurred, according to the Morris alive. Osborn said she has made contact with another witness, and said that witness has tried to talk to the BBPD, but has not been allowed. Speciale previously said no such witness has come forward and he welcomed Osborn to present new evidence, but she has not done so. Osborn said she welcomed the news that the case may be looked at further, but continues to resist the idea of BBPD involvement. My concern still remains the same and that is BBPD should not be the agency to handle any follow up, she said. ObituaryAudrey Lorraine Ellens Audrey Lorraine Ellens, 83, of Bradenton, died Sept. 17.

THE ISLANDER SEPT. 26, 2012 13 Holmes Beach author draws from island-inspired lifeHolmes Beach author Nicole Quigley talks Sept. 19 it hit bookstores. Islander Photo: Kathy Prucnell By Kathy Prucnell Islander Reporter Nicole Quigley moved to Holmes Beach when she was 12, and a couple decades later she came back to be teen suicide, drug use, sex and faith. Quigleys personal journey on the island started at King Middle School and continued through Manatee High honors classes to Appalachian State University in North Carolina. She graduated with a bachelors of scipublic relations agency. Quigley hopes to meet people, reacquaint old friendships and discuss her journey on Anna Maria Island. She invites everyone to attend a reading and book sale-signing at Rosedale, 535 Pine Ave., Anna Maria. In 2005, she began working with some of the best ton, D.C., she says, where she handled public relations for and death row exoneration cases. With such success and a great job, why come back? I needed to pursue a dream that I had since I was a little girl, Quigley says. I remember my mother reading to me. I just fell in love with literature. It became clear to me that I had to write, and I had to know if I could write if I was meant to write, she said. When I realized I would never feel settled until I got an answer to that question, it led me down a certain path. She had ups and down. Before writing her now-pubshort story were rejected. She then decided to submit a couple of chapters from Like Moonlight to a 2011 American Christian Fiction Writers contest. She went to an ACFW conference in St. Louis and met an acquisitions editor who encouraged her to continue with her writing. The two chapters from Like Moonlight ended up winning the ACFW Genesis Award, and her writing has been rolling along for Quigley since. hitting the bookstores this month. The idea for the story, says Quigley, came from visiting her mom in Holmes Beach, and imagining a teenage girl living on Anna Maria Island. The story begins as Melissa Keiser returns to her hometown on the island, where she was once bullied and considered the ugliest girl in middle school. Shed temporarily relocated with her mother to Pennsylvania, but was back on the island as a junior in high school. Missy Shes noticed by a boy of her dreams and a boy next door, and enters an alluring world of popularity and parties. With everyone noticing the new Missy, her buried self esteem begins to heal. But it takes a horrible tragedy. It leads her to forgive her bullies and forgive herself, Quigley explains. The island is an interesting setting for this book because its essentially paradise. Heres a girl in tremendous turmoil, living against this backdrop of beauty, so that provided a great contrast. Just because her outside is becoming more and more beautiful, shes still the girl who was told she was no good, she said. In publishing her book, she hopes to reach even one teenager and help them survive bullying. In my day you just had it during school, Quigley on Facebook, on texts, or what have you. It can be all consuming. These kids are overwhelmed with it. A lot of the focus is on how to stop it, which is important, but what happens after it stops? Youre still left with all the hard issues, she said. Quigleys book is available at Books-A-Million, 4225 14th St. W., Bradenton, and the Family Christian Store, 5203 Cortez Road, Bradenton. She also will sign and discuss her book 11 a.m.-1 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 29, at Books-A-Million, Bradenton.

Anna Maria passes tax hike, $2.3 million budgetBy Rick Catlin Islander Reporter Thanks to rising home values that increased propcommissioners were able to unanimously approve a $2.3 million budget at their Sept. 19 budget hearing for the The commission retained the ad valorem millage rate of 2.05 mills, the same rate as the 2011-12 budget, but the rate represents a tax increase. The $2.3 million operating budget is a 4.5 percent increase from this years $2.2 million spending plan. The increase in ad valorem revenue to the city as a result of the 2.05 millage rate exceeds the rollback rate by 1.41 percent, said city treasurer Diane Percycoe. A mill is $1 for every $1,000 of property value. An Anna Maria homeowner with a house at an appraised value of $400,000 by the Manatee County tions taken, would pay $820 in city property taxes at the 2.05 millage rate. A suggestion by Commission Chair Chuck Webb that salary increases for staff be reduced from 3 percent to 2 percent was rejected 4-0. Webb was unable to attend the meeting, but sent his suggestion in a memo. Commissioner SueLynn said Anna Marias staff is smaller than that of Bradenton Beach, but does just as much work, if not more. And Anna Maria has about 300 more residents than Bradenton Beach, she said. Other commissioners agreed with the 3 percent pay raise for staff. Commissioners also approved purchase of a new Anna Maria substation. while a deputy is driving his vehicle, according to information from Sgt. Dave Turner, head of the substation. Deputies can be on patrol and check the speed of an approaching vehicle or vehicle on a side street, Turner said. The device is portable and can be used with any MCSO vehicle, Turner said. Commissioners held off on approving the purchase of a 2007 electric truck from public works superintendent McKay said he found the truck for sale by an Anna Maria resident. It has 7,000 miles, he said, and the book value is in the $7,500-$8,000 range. Commissioners favored purchasing the vehicle when McKay presented the idea at a prior budget workshop, but the purchase must be approved at a commission meeting. McKay said he decided to buy the truck because he knew someone would grab the bargain before the wheels of city government could get turning. Percycoe said there is $3,000 in this years budget to the new budget to complete the purchase. City attorney Jim Dye said he didnt see any conpaying McKay exactly what it cost him, but he said he would research the matter to be sure. Commissioners agreed to wait for Dyes report, expected at the Sept. 27 meeting. McKay said that based upon the electric vehicle given the city in 1999 and still in use it would take about two years for the truck to pay for itself in gasoline savings. Percycoe also announced that the reserve fund is at 34 percent in the 2012-13 budget. The 2011-12 budget had a reserve fund below 30 percent, but city auditors have recommended maintaining a 35 percent reserve fund, Percycoe said. She was given a standing ovation by commissioners and the people in the gallery at the hearing. In what acting Chair Dale Woodland said was somewhat of a surprise at a budget hearing, a citizen spoke during public comment. Only two members of the public attended the meeting. Larry Kerr said he owns a vacation rental in the city, and is a practicing attorney in South Carolina. Im glad to see taxes arent rising. It seems to me you all have done a very good job with the money, Kerr said. Someday, I hope to retire here, he said. Woodland said thats good news. The city can always use another retired attorney to sit on a board or committee. Welcome sign again vandalizedThe Rotary Club of Anna Maria Island welcome sign Manatee Avenue was damaged for a second time in less than two months, according to club Sept. 17. It also was damaged in August. Zemmer blamed the damage on vandals and vowed to restore the sign to its original state. Islander Photo: Kathy Prucnell

The play begins with William Gillette, an actor who portrays Sherlock Holmes on Broadway in the 1920s, inviting his friends for a weekend at his castle along the Connecticut River on the anniversary of the death of his lover, Maude, who died a year earlier from a gunshot wound. Everything is set over two nights. They arrive from New York, where theyve just performed, to spend whats left of the weekend, Gibbs explains. hold a sance and. on the second, the cast gets ready for a party to be given for Sarah Bernhardt, the famous French actress. Gibbs describes readying the play for opening night Jan VanWart and the stage crew headed by Jack Abene to pull together a complicated set. Its a most weird place. Ive never known a castle with an interior like that, he says of the set. The audition for the actors who play actors who We were inundated, Gibbs said, with more than 40 people auditioning for seven parts. The nice thing is there were a few people I worked with before. They wanted to have another bash with Gibbs. For the roles in Postmortem, he cast Diana Shoemaker, John Durkin, Anne Bean, Heiko Knipfelberg, Mark Shoemaker, Robin Rhodes and Sylvia Marnie.

Drink up the grog me hearties or be you a scurvy bilge rat. While not necessarily the greeting for guests to the Anna Maria Island Privateers second annual Grog Fest, it was a pirates day Sept. 22 at the Drift In, 120 Bridge St., Bradenton Beach. While the Privateers sometimes put on an intimiwas to raise money for their scholarship fund. Each year, the group helps college students advance by providing assistance. A dozen bars and restaurants entered their interpretation of grog into the annual contest to claim bragging rights for the year. According to Roger Hoodat Murphree, the inaugural event last year raised $1,000, and we are hoping to double that this year, he said. The term grog dates back to the pirate days where a ships quartermaster would add rum to the crews water supply. Murphree said fresh water didnt last long on voyages and the rum helped to keep the water clean. That was a technique used not only by pirates, but most of the worlds navies, he said. The water was usually stored in oak kegs and would go stagnate after just a few days. The rum killed the bacteria and kept the water drinkable. Todays grog is any mixture of alcohol concoctions, minus the beer. Guests to the Grog Fest tasted a dozen samples and voted on their favorite, and the Privateers created a traveling trophy for the winner to keep for a year. Last years grog winner, the Drift In, was this years host, and this years big winner: Big Fish Real Estate. Anna Maria Island Privateers Debbie Stumbles Murphree and Alex Zuchniewicz embrace on Bridge Street at their Sept. 22 grog party, which included the pirate duties of handing out beads, selling scurvy dogs and testingg grog offered in a friendly competition by 12 local establishments. The Privateers Grog Fest was held at the Drift In Tavern, 120 Bridge St., Bradenton Beach. Islander Photo: Mark Young

18 SEPT. 26, 2012 THE ISLANDER Rely Maintenance Services Residential and estate cleanouts Call the one you can RELY on! 941-243-6995 Work to repair Bradenton Beach dingy dock to begin Repairs to the dingy dock, south of the Bradenton Beach Historic Bridge Street Pier and across from the Bridgetender Restaurant, are expected to begin. The dock was severely damaged in June during Tropical Storm Debby. Islander Photo: Mark Young By Mark Young Islander Reporter Three months after Tropical Storm Debby all but destroyed the Bradenton Beach dingy dock adjacent to the Historic Bridge Street Pier, repair work is set to begin. Last month, Bradenton Beach Police Department Lt. John Cosby announced that the Federal Emergency Management Agency approved three projects to repair damages caused by TS Debby. A seawall at the end of 11th Street South, the day dock at the pier and the dingy dock all received preapproval from FEMA. The agency will reimburse 75 percent of the citys project costs. Cosby, at the Sept. 20 city commission meeting, said work on the seawall was just about completed and asked commissioners for authorization to begin work on the dingy dock. Commissioner Gay Breuler motioned to approve the dingy dock repairs. Commissioner Jan Vosburgh seconded the motion, which passed 4-0. Commissioner Ric Gatehouse was absent with excuse. Once the dingy dock is back in shape, the city is expected to begin work on the day dock, which was before Debby. The tropical storm caused further damage and ensured the dock would remain closed. In other city matters, commissioners approved installation of an underground, 500-gallon propane tank near public works and the BBPD. The generator issue arose during the budget process when commissioners scrutinized the public works budget. Public works director Tom Woodard told commissioners a prior administration approved the purchase of a new generator that would keep the city operational during a storm. The installation, however, was never approved and the new generator has remained crated for more than two years. The generator was purchased to replace the citys World War II-era equipment. Woodard said the propane tank would be underground, but an exact location has yet to be determined. When they come out, we will discuss the best place, but it will be underground, he said. We have everything set up for the generator. Woodard said the new generator and propane tank could run the citys administrative, police and public works departments nonstop for 10 days. A power outage would shut down city hall, but administrators would move emergency operations to the public works facility. Breuler motioned to approve the installation. Vosburgh seconded the motion that passed 4-0. Commissioners also passed a motion to authorize a letter of no objection for a project at the BeachHouse Restaurant, 200 Gulf Drive N. The restaurant has submitted a proposal to build a storage facility for the gift shop. According to city planner Alan Garrett, the project meets city, state and federal requirements. Vice Mayor Ed Straight asked what was currently at the location of the proposed building. Garrett said the building is being located on an area that already has most of the concrete slab in place, and would not present itself as an obstacle. Breuler provided the boards only liaison report to close out the Sept. 20 meeting. She said she attended the Anna Maria Island Chamber of Commerce meeting with Manatee County Commissioners John Chappie and Carol Whitmore. There has been an ordinance created by the state that there can be no changes in any rental ordinance currently in place in any city in Florida, said Breuler. The League of Cities is very much against this because it erodes our home rule and Florida has always been a strong home-rule state. The state statute requires future zoning and code changes treat residential and rental properties equally. Breuler said Whitmore and Chappie requested from city commissioners a letter opposing the state law. Commissioners gave a consensus to sign a letter of opposition, but wanted Breuler to check with the county commissioners to see if they had a form before directing Perry to write a new one.Fishing hook-and-line cleanup slated for Saturday Sarasota Bay Watch will host its fourth annual Sarasota Bay Fishing Line Cleanup Day Saturday, Sept. 29, at the Sarasota Sailing Squadron, 1717 Ken Thompson Parkway, Sarasota.

Islander Photo: Mark Young By Mark Young Islander Reporter The last thing Bradenton Beach city commissioners wanted to hear was there could be another delay that would push the Historic Bridge Street Pier reconstruction project closer to tourist season. But that was the message received Sept. 20 during the city commission meeting at Bradenton Beach City Hall, 107 Gulf Drive N. Based on recommendations from the city pier team, commissioners previously approved a plan to hire The thinking behind the pier teams recommendation was the hire would save time because he was the engineer of record for a previous pier project. But that has not been the case. The city and Sego an insurance claim against Segos insurer in the event a City attorney Ricinda Perry and Sego have been trying to work through the stalemate for more than a month but, according to Perry, Sego has gone quiet on further negotiations. The commission met and authorized a contract contract, and he said he would not accept it. Perry said it appears Sego is trying to contract on behalf of his insurance company. So, I explained this to Mr. Sego and asked him issues, to please let me speak to his attorney, she said. That was on Aug. 15, and I have not received anything from Mr. Sego or his attorney explaining the sticking point. Perry told commissioners she wanted to be sure the citys position to protect itself was a standard contract concern, so she sought two separate legal opinions and was told that, yes, the city needed that protection in its engineering contract. Perry said she shared that information with Sego and informed him that the city would be discussing the contract Sept. 20. And I have received no response from Mr. Sego, she said. It is my legal opinion that it is not in the best interest of the city to strike that provision from the contract. Perry said she understood the citys urgency to complete the pier project before tourist season and would strike the provision if commissioners agreed. She also provided the alternative solution of drafting a request for proposal and bid the project in an attempt to retain a new engineer. If the commission wants to expedite an RFP for someone else, I believe that can be handled, she said. Commissioner Jan Vosburgh asked Perry if she had spoken with Segos insurance company. I dont know who the insurance company is, said Perry. Mr. Sego has not provided me with the name of the insurance company. Vosburgh said it sounds like Sego is no longer interested in the project. Thats just weird, she said. I dont know what his problem is. Hes obviously not interested. Commissioner Gay Breuler agreed. Part of me says if the guy doesnt want to give us the information and hes not showing up to the meeting, then maybe hes pulling away, scared or doesnt want to do it, she said. Mayor John Shaughnessy said the city is caught in a Catch-22. This is something we have to do, and its time sensitive, he said. I dont want that pier closed during season. If that pier is closed for any length of time, the restaurant will suffer, too. But I dont want to put the city in jeopardy. If he wont respond, then maybe he doesnt want to do it. 5 An RFP would get more than two responses, he said. People are still looking for work out there and this is not a complicated project. Breuler also asked the opinion of public works director Tom Woodard, whose department maintains the pier. When I deal with things like this, and you have Mr. Sego not responding when he is aware of our timeframe and importance of this project, I would personally move on, Woodard said. If we have that kind of problem with him now, we could have a lot more problems with him down the road, said Vosburgh. Shaughnessy asked and received a consensus from the commissioners to authorize Perry to draft an RFP. Perry said she would have the RFP ready to present to the commission at its Oct. 4 meeting.

Chappie was on hand to hear citizen concerns regarding beach erosion. Islander Photos: Courtesy Kathy Caserta By Mark Young Islander Reporter Rapid transformation could be a term applied to beach erosion issues, or lack thereof, across Anna Maria Island sand in June, and TS Isaacs subsequent return of sand in July. The two storms had different effects along the island shore, but the Bradenton Beach Club including about 52 condo owners in Bradenton Beach believes the situation could have been worse if not for sea oats. If the two storms had one thing in common, it would be the loss of the very sea oats that residents say protected beaches. Sea oats are a natural plant species on island beaches that contribute to building dunes. They provide a root system that helps keep sand and dunes in place during a tidal surge. As was evidenced during Debby, the dunes with sea oats helped prevent washover. The dunes, however, still suffered losses, leaving what BBC residents are calling AMI cliffs or half dunes, where noticeable escarpments were created. Kathy Caserta, a beachfront homeowner in Holmes Beach, said citizens have taken it upon themselves to plant sea oats to protect island shores, and she now wants the county to begin a planting program. Manatee County Commissioner John Chappie met with citizens Sept. 7 to hear their concerns on the state of island beaches. According to notes taken at the meeting by BBC members, Chappie expressed concern for the beaches, but said nothing can be considered until sea turtle nesting season ends in October. Caserta said that since 2001, beachfront homeowners have planted and cared for more than 1,400 sea oats that perform vital beach protection. She said tourist tax dollars help maintain island beaches, but no protection, such as a sea-oat planting program exists. I believe we need a plan to distribute sea oats and have volunteers plant them if we wish to continue our future with beautiful beaches, said Caserta. The sea oats did their job, created the dune, protected our beaches and got washed away. Chappie said overall beach cleanup will resume after turtle nesting season, and beach re-nourishment is already funded for 2014. The commissioner did express interest in the BBCs idea to create a sea oat program. Caserta said she watched the devastation to the beaches as Debby moved up the Gulf of Mexico coastline. When the storm passed, there was no rush by me to run down to the edge of the sea oats, as I already knew the damage, she said. Im in an elevated home, and when the beachwalkers passed by, I could only see the tops of their heads, so I knew I would not be excited to see the results. Caserta said Chappie was receptive to the idea of a county program to plant sea oats because he understands the nature of the plant.High-speed transit needed for SRQ, but not likely soonWilliam Steele, new director of Manatee County Area Transportation District 1 community liaison.

He added one idea thats been kicked around by the Tampa Bay Area Regional Transportation Authority for a number of years is a high-speed or premium transit system to serve the Sarasota-Bradenton International The system, Howe said, is needed but has never gained momentum because it lacks funding. Howe said it would also need to run east-west to ease congestion to barrier islands in Sarasota and Manatee counties and at Lakewood Ranch. Its an idea, however, thats well into the future, Howe observed. near the Red Barn Flea Market, then travels across the Manatee River and into Palmetto before branching again into two separate highways past the convention center. This is a major choke point in downtown Bradenton, Howe said. About 100 people attended a recent charette on a proposal for a new bridge across the Manatee River. The Florida Department of Transportation will prepare a report on options for the choke point, make a recommendation and the MPO will decide where we go in the future, said Howe. In other business, Holmes Beach Mayor Rich Bohnenberger, the ITPO chairperson, thanked Anna Maria public works superintendent George McKay for his dedication to the Florida Department of Transportation and other transportation committees. Outgoing Manatee County Area Transit director Carl Hunsinger, who will be replaced Oct. 1 by William Steele, praised McKay and the island cities for working with MCAT and DOT. He noted how quickly McKay park at the Anna Maria City Pier while also allowing more room for vehicles to maneuver in the parking lot. Hunsinger said Sarasota County Area Transit also is getting a new director and MCAT and SCAT heads will meet monthly.

Remember, with all of this action occurring, expect to see plenty of sharks. Species include blacktip, spinner, sandbar, bull, hammerhead and bonnethead. I suggest using 3 feet of 100-pound hardwire after the big boys, you may want to increase your leader and hook sizes. These sharks are feeding on whatever migratory species are in the area, so make use of these species for bait. A chunk of Spanish mackerel or bonito is like candy to a shark.

A Clark spoon trailed behind a popping cork is a great choice to add to your arsenal, says Oldham. Gotcha plugs and hook baited with a live shiner or shrimp will get you hooked up. Add a split shot about 18 inches above your bait and drag the bottom around the pilings. When you is subtle, so it may take a few nibbles to get the hang of it. Finally, Oldham is hearing from the charter captains and catch-and-release snook are being boated daily by their clients.

Johnston is using live shiners and shrimp to catch this past week, which is a great size for a bay catch. Along with snapper, Johnston is catching numerous juvenile gag and red grouper, as well as decent numbers of keeper-size sheepshead. For the sheepies, Johnston is using whole live shrimp or fresh-cut pieces. Capt. Rick Gross of Fishy Business charters is worklive shiners for bait and also for chum.

If youre targeting macks, Medley suggests keeping the bait in the upper part of the water column toward the top. Once the bait reaches depths of 4 or 5 feet below the surface, expect to catch jack crevalle and blue runners.

For more information, call 941-778-1541.Chamber going green The Anna Maria Island Chamber of Commerce is doing its part to reduce consumption of resources. A press release from chamber president Mary Ann Brockman announced that beginning in October, the monthly listing of events will be emailed to members. Postcards will no longer be mailed. Brockman said the switch to email would save trees, not to mention the postal expense. Did you know it takes 39 gallons of water to make a single pound of paper? she asked. According to a paper trade publication, the United States uses 25 percent of the worlds paper products each year. The chamber will continue to print the monthly newsletter and include an events page, but the newsletter and calendar will be in a new format. We hope you enjoy the new look, and we look forward to your participation at our events, said Brockman. Brockman also announced a chamber partnership event 4-7:30 p.m. Wednesday, Nov. 7, at the Bradenton Area Convention Center, 1 Haben Blvd., Palmetto. Chambers from Manatee, Sarasota and Anna Maria Island will display new products, services, accommodations and restaurant features. The event will include hors doeuvre and appetizers provided by participating restaurants. A cash bar will likely be available, as was the case in 2011, she said. More than 1,200 people attended the 2011 partner ship, and Brockman expects even better attendance this year. Businesses may reserve both space at the event, or obtain more information by calling 941-778-1541.

By Mark Young Islander Reporter A 15-member panel of Florida Department of Law Enforcement members and medical examiners met in Avon Park Sept. 19 to review the 2009 death investigation of Sheena Morris. Morris, 25, was found dead New Years Day at the BridgeWalk Resort in Bradenton Beach. The case was initially ruled a suicide by District 12 medical examiner Dr. Russell Vega, but was changed in 2011. Morris mother, Kelly Osborn, hired Dr. Michael Berkland, who convinced Vega to change the cause of death from suicide to undetermined based on his review of crime scene photos. It was Berklands opinion that the crime scene could have been staged. Berkland has since fallen under scrutiny after a Pensacola storage unit he was renting was found to contain a number of human organs being preserved in household containers. Berklands reputation was further tarnished when it was revealed he duties. The FDLE team, as well as medical examiners from the 5th and 10th districts found no fault with Bradenton Beach Police Detective Leonard Diazs investigation. Vega also was at the Sept. 9 review, but attended as an observer and to answer questions from the FDLE SMART Panel, as to why he felt the cause of death needed to be changed. His responses were confidential, although the information may become public at a later date. Morris was found hanging by a dog leash Fundraising, spending, sign regs, more.

During a Sept. 18 interview with The Islander, public works superintendent Joe Duennes said Shaffer went on a planned vacation until Sept. 30, and that before Shaffer left, he told Duennes he was considering resigning. A letter Sept. 19, however, indicated Shaffers employment had been terminated Sept. 18. On Sept. 21, Duennes said, Something happened between when I talked to you last. However, Duennes said he could not discuss it further because lawyers may become involved in the matter. The termination letter to Shaffer is signed by Duennes. It states, Pursuant to Section XIV of the City of Holmes Beach Employee Handbook adopted by Ordinance 07-20, please be advised that your employment FDLE concludes Morris-BBPD death reviewLA murder trial: Gruesome confession, closing drama By Rick Catlin and Bonner Joy David Viens, a former Holmes Beach resident and island restaurant owner is on trial in Los Angeles for murdering his wife, Dawn Viens. According to reporter Larry Altman, who has covered the Viens case for the Daily Breeze since Dawn Viens 2009 disappearance the trial last week reached movie-of-theweek levels. Last week a sheriffs office homicide in the shower stall of her motel room. BBPD and determined there was no evidence of foul play. Diaz, accompanied to the review by Lt. John Cosby, presented the facts of his investigation to the review board. The presentation began at 9:30 a.m. and did not end until about 3:30 p.m. Diaz said he could not discuss the details of the review, but said it was professional and intense. BBPD issued a press release Sept. 20 as to the review process. The SMART Panel did not reinvestigate the case, rather, this independent panel objectively reviewed the investigation relying on the specialized expertise of the members to provide suggestions or recommendations regarding the case, the release stated. On Sept. 21, Cosby said the panels recommendations would be submitted to the BBPD within the next two weeks. The review consisted of the panel knowing the basics of the case, with one member being kept completely out of the loop until the review, said Cosby. As Diaz presented his case, they asked questions and he answered them. Cosby said Police Chief Sam Speciale requested the review following Osborns public campaign for justice in her daughters case.

The letter notes that Duennes had previously advised Shaffer of his termination by telephone the afternoon of Sept. 18 and, in accordance with Section XIV, the mayor has concurred with this decision. The section referenced by the letter is from the handbooks discipline policy, which lists one type of discipline as termination. It also provides that a department head, with the mayors concurrence, has the authority to terminate an employee. During the Sept. 18 talk with The Islander, Duennes emphasized Shaffer had not offered his resignation and expected hed make his decision upon his return, or call during his vacation. Shaffer scheduled the time off about a month ago, Duennes said. Without him around here, Im pretty much overloaded, Duennes added. If Bob leaves Ill be disappointed. Hes a great guy. Its really a shame. Hed give the shirt off his back. Shaffers departure comes at a time when the building department has been deluged with public records requests and questioned about its practices by Commissioner Jean Peelen, as well as commission candidate Judy Holmes Titsworth and others. Titsworth criticized the mayor and building department for failing to enforce the building code and suggested the city consider an outside consultant be contracted for plan reviews, applications and inspections. Peelen released a report Aug. 14 claiming a lax land development code not staff had led to construction of large out-of-scale homes and illegal use of groundlevel enclosures. In the same report she called for the demotion of the building inspector. Shaffer and Duennes have defended the accusations, saying new construction has been in accordance with city codes and the state building code. Mayor Rich Bohnenberger defended the department department underwent two audits with positive results, plans review and inspections. Former Holmes Beach public works superintendent John Fernandez, recently retired as a Longboat Key buildhelping Duennes with inspections and plan reviews. Fernandez said he has worked about 37 hours per month for the city. He retired recently from his position with Longboat Key, and told The Islander he would decline a full-time job if its offered by Holmes Beach. Neither Bohnenberger nor Shaffer returned calls for comment.AM committee focuses on historical elementsSissy Quinn, left, chair of the Anna Maria Historical Preservation Committee and committee secretary Maureen McCormick check the calendar at the conclusion of a Sept. 18 meeting. Islander Photo: Rick Catlin By Rick Catlin Islander Reporter The Anna Maria Historical Preservation Committee decided Sept. 18 to focus on establishing the requirements needed to get the committee recognized by the local government. Once thats accomplished, the committee can write an ordinance with criteria for designating historic sites, particularly older homes, and establishing incentives for owners to retain ground-level homes. Chair Sissy Quinn has long been worried that developers are buying up older ground-level homes and replacing them with elevated homes with multiple bedrooms ary lines for districts and individual properties. Committee member George Barford said Anna Maria is too small to establish districts for historical inclusion, but city planner Alan Garrett said it is a state requirement. This is just boiler-plate stuff anyway, said building Still, Barford was concerned that some people might ervation ordinance for commission consideration. The ordinance is seen as a tool allowing property without meeting the Federal Emergency Management below the base level elevation of 8 feet six inches would cost 50 percent or more of its structure value to remodel, the house must be demolished and the living space must be elevated to the minimum BLE. The preservation ordinance would establish criteria for a historical designation, how to handle variance requests, how to deal with economic hardships, incentives for an owner to keep a ground-level home, and a number of other procedures. Commissioner SueLynn, the commission liaison to the committee, said the goal of the committee is to retain ground-level homes in the city that give Anna Maria its old-Florida atmosphere.

Opinion YourReal AMI Ive spent the past 12 Februarys on Anna Maria Island, in all three cities, and I plan to be back. I follow some of the issues, and heres my opinion on one: I describe Anna Maria Island as one of the last Gulf islands where real people live. Theres a supermarket, hardware and drug stores and other shops, a library and a few places where one can eat without getting a second mortgage. Its a relatively quiet, laid-back place, and by 9 p.m. it is mostly silent. Its not Disney World, and Im grateful for that. Older, ground-level homes on spacious lots or clustered informally give some neighborhoods the comfortable old-Florida look. However, FEMA guidelines have helped to spawn a new-Florida look, with elevated houses painted in vivid pastels, while skyrocketing land prices cause them to be crammed together. Some of these have become bloated to accommodate more than one family, so that parking and noise have become problems for neighbors. The islands spectacular beaches and moderate weather have always attracted tourists and snowbirds like me, but in the past there was some balance. That seems to be vanishing. The increasing number of vacation and rental properties is changing Anna Maria Islands ambiance to the detriment of its dwindling number of residents. In the end, it may become a sort of pseudo-Florida resort where the workers cant afford to live or even want to. Im glad Ive had the opportunity to enjoy the real Anna Maria before its gone. High-rise future? Interesting newspaper this past week. On one hand: The HB mayor states, there is no crises in the city and our founding fathers expected at least 50 percent rental in the Residential-2 zone. (Really?) Anna Maria Coalition farcically claims its size that matters to residents; all we need are good neighbor policies. On the other hand, the lax interpretation of the Federal Emergency Management Agency 50 percent rule is being openly challenged. The Islander editorial alluded to the need to embrace the future, resolve and solve matters in city codes to prevent future problems. The elephant (Where are the residents?): Until recently, the R-2 district duplexes were owned was a real residential area. Today, R-2 is rapidly losing its residential hue. It is well on its way to becoming a purely commercial district of vacation rentals, owned by countless LLCs. There will be no residents. Would you want to live in the middle of Beach Party City? week) is Real, Authentic Florida. yet here we are on a path that turns away from that brand and logically could convert us to an island of high-rise structures in the future. What will be the brand of the future? Welcome to the West Coast Version of the East Coast, or will we remain the Real, Authentic Florida. We must act! The everything is OK attitude is a pathway to oblivion. Bob Johnson, Holmes Beach Welcome, new season signals the trickle down of winter friends snowbirds, as we affectionately know them. But guess what with the migration of so many summer to cooler climates, including summer in North Carolina, we now have a fall season. Welcome back, fall friends! With the myriad complaints about too many guests in this house or that and too much noise coming from the pool or too many cars parked here and there, we noted a quiet, painfully slow September for business. tell from watching brief periods of television only to be inundated with national and state campaign ads. Once again, however, we found ourselves with almost no one but incumbents save one newcomer in two of the three Island cities. Its sad to note, but we lack the likes of the late Holmes Beach Commissioner Don Maloney, a strong advocate of the election process who surely would have thrown his hat in the ring just to ensure a race. We were sorry to note Anna Maria Mayor Mike Selby opted not to seek a second term, and equally disappointed that no ran for his seat. commissioners will be elected vice mayor and immeThat will result in a vacant commission seat, which will be appointed by the remaining four members. Lets just call it musical chairs. In Bradenton Beach, we have two incumbents with no opposition and both are automatically returned to Then theres Holmes Beach, with a hotly contested race for incumbent Mayor Rich Bohnenbergers seat and the commission seats held by Sandy Haas-Martens and John Monetti. This city has an election. Challengers political newcomers all Judy Holmes Titsworth, great-granddaugter of the citys namesake, and Marvin Grossman are vying for the two seats on the commission, and Carmel Monti is looking to unseat the mayor. This should hold your interest, as the local political pundits seem to feel theres much at stake no matter which way it goes. Hello fall. Hello election. Hello winter friends. This and relief from temps in the 90s is just what weve been waiting for.

Once the FDLE recommendations are received, Speciale is expected to announce an administrative reopening of the case, Cosby said. What we expect the recommendations will ask is for us to close out any possible loopholes just to strengthen on an old case, it technically has to be considered reopened. Cosby has been acting chief for two weeks while Speciale was hospitalized due to illness. Speciale is expected to miss another week of work, but should return around Our goal once we receive those recommendations is to ask FDLE for their assistance in our investigation, said Cosby. There has a been an appearance that BBPD has stood alone in this case, and we want to make sure that we dont have anyone saying this was a one-sided deal when we close this case again. Cosby said the review process also consisted of SMART members using Osborns website, Justice for Sheena, where the family lists its primary concerns with the investigation, as well as their own theories. They had that site pulled up through the entire review process and asked questions relating to the familys concerns, he said. So the familys concerns were addressed in the process and one of our goals is to address the familys concerns to the best of our ability. Osborn expressed frustration that she continues to be updated by the media, rather than law enforcement, but case was poorly investigated in its recommendation. not see the mishandling of the domestic violence call, not questioning our family, Sheenas friends and most importantly the boyfriend, who was involved in the dispute, said Osborn. Osborn has consistently criticized the way the initial call to police was handled, and has called it a domestic violence case. BBPD maintains the call was not a domestic violence-related call, rather another resort guest making a call to complain of loud voices. Police responded to the BridgeWalk Resort and reported observing the boyfriend calmly leaving the scene. them no physical violence had occurred, according to the Morris alive. Osborn said she has made contact with another witness, and said that witness has tried to talk to the BBPD, but has not been allowed. Speciale previously said no such witness has come forward and he welcomed Osborn to present new evidence, but she has not done so. Osborn said she welcomed the news that the case may be looked at further, but continues to resist the idea of BBPD involvement. My concern still remains the same and that is BBPD should not be the agency to handle any follow up, she said. ObituaryAudrey Lorraine Ellens Audrey Lorraine Ellens, 83, of Bradenton, died Sept. 17.

THE ISLANDER SEPT. 26, 2012 13 Holmes Beach author draws from island-inspired lifeHolmes Beach author Nicole Quigley talks Sept. 19 it hit bookstores. Islander Photo: Kathy Prucnell By Kathy Prucnell Islander Reporter Nicole Quigley moved to Holmes Beach when she was 12, and a couple decades later she came back to be teen suicide, drug use, sex and faith. Quigleys personal journey on the island started at King Middle School and continued through Manatee High honors classes to Appalachian State University in North Carolina. She graduated with a bachelors of scipublic relations agency. Quigley hopes to meet people, reacquaint old friendships and discuss her journey on Anna Maria Island. She invites everyone to attend a reading and book sale-signing at Rosedale, 535 Pine Ave., Anna Maria. In 2005, she began working with some of the best ton, D.C., she says, where she handled public relations for and death row exoneration cases. With such success and a great job, why come back? I needed to pursue a dream that I had since I was a little girl, Quigley says. I remember my mother reading to me. I just fell in love with literature. It became clear to me that I had to write, and I had to know if I could write if I was meant to write, she said. When I realized I would never feel settled until I got an answer to that question, it led me down a certain path. She had ups and down. Before writing her now-pubshort story were rejected. She then decided to submit a couple of chapters from Like Moonlight to a 2011 American Christian Fiction Writers contest. She went to an ACFW conference in St. Louis and met an acquisitions editor who encouraged her to continue with her writing. The two chapters from Like Moonlight ended up winning the ACFW Genesis Award, and her writing has been rolling along for Quigley since. hitting the bookstores this month. The idea for the story, says Quigley, came from visiting her mom in Holmes Beach, and imagining a teenage girl living on Anna Maria Island. The story begins as Melissa Keiser returns to her hometown on the island, where she was once bullied and considered the ugliest girl in middle school. Shed temporarily relocated with her mother to Pennsylvania, but was back on the island as a junior in high school. Missy Shes noticed by a boy of her dreams and a boy next door, and enters an alluring world of popularity and parties. With everyone noticing the new Missy, her buried self esteem begins to heal. But it takes a horrible tragedy. It leads her to forgive her bullies and forgive herself, Quigley explains. The island is an interesting setting for this book because its essentially paradise. Heres a girl in tremendous turmoil, living against this backdrop of beauty, so that provided a great contrast. Just because her outside is becoming more and more beautiful, shes still the girl who was told she was no good, she said. In publishing her book, she hopes to reach even one teenager and help them survive bullying. In my day you just had it during school, Quigley on Facebook, on texts, or what have you. It can be all consuming. These kids are overwhelmed with it. A lot of the focus is on how to stop it, which is important, but what happens after it stops? Youre still left with all the hard issues, she said. Quigleys book is available at Books-A-Million, 4225 14th St. W., Bradenton, and the Family Christian Store, 5203 Cortez Road, Bradenton. She also will sign and discuss her book 11 a.m.-1 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 29, at Books-A-Million, Bradenton.

Anna Maria passes tax hike, $2.3 million budgetBy Rick Catlin Islander Reporter Thanks to rising home values that increased propcommissioners were able to unanimously approve a $2.3 million budget at their Sept. 19 budget hearing for the The commission retained the ad valorem millage rate of 2.05 mills, the same rate as the 2011-12 budget, but the rate represents a tax increase. The $2.3 million operating budget is a 4.5 percent increase from this years $2.2 million spending plan. The increase in ad valorem revenue to the city as a result of the 2.05 millage rate exceeds the rollback rate by 1.41 percent, said city treasurer Diane Percycoe. A mill is $1 for every $1,000 of property value. An Anna Maria homeowner with a house at an appraised value of $400,000 by the Manatee County tions taken, would pay $820 in city property taxes at the 2.05 millage rate. A suggestion by Commission Chair Chuck Webb that salary increases for staff be reduced from 3 percent to 2 percent was rejected 4-0. Webb was unable to attend the meeting, but sent his suggestion in a memo. Commissioner SueLynn said Anna Marias staff is smaller than that of Bradenton Beach, but does just as much work, if not more. And Anna Maria has about 300 more residents than Bradenton Beach, she said. Other commissioners agreed with the 3 percent pay raise for staff. Commissioners also approved purchase of a new Anna Maria substation. while a deputy is driving his vehicle, according to information from Sgt. Dave Turner, head of the substation. Deputies can be on patrol and check the speed of an approaching vehicle or vehicle on a side street, Turner said. The device is portable and can be used with any MCSO vehicle, Turner said. Commissioners held off on approving the purchase of a 2007 electric truck from public works superintendent McKay said he found the truck for sale by an Anna Maria resident. It has 7,000 miles, he said, and the book value is in the $7,500-$8,000 range. Commissioners favored purchasing the vehicle when McKay presented the idea at a prior budget workshop, but the purchase must be approved at a commission meeting. McKay said he decided to buy the truck because he knew someone would grab the bargain before the wheels of city government could get turning. Percycoe said there is $3,000 in this years budget to the new budget to complete the purchase. City attorney Jim Dye said he didnt see any conpaying McKay exactly what it cost him, but he said he would research the matter to be sure. Commissioners agreed to wait for Dyes report, expected at the Sept. 27 meeting. McKay said that based upon the electric vehicle given the city in 1999 and still in use it would take about two years for the truck to pay for itself in gasoline savings. Percycoe also announced that the reserve fund is at 34 percent in the 2012-13 budget. The 2011-12 budget had a reserve fund below 30 percent, but city auditors have recommended maintaining a 35 percent reserve fund, Percycoe said. She was given a standing ovation by commissioners and the people in the gallery at the hearing. In what acting Chair Dale Woodland said was somewhat of a surprise at a budget hearing, a citizen spoke during public comment. Only two members of the public attended the meeting. Larry Kerr said he owns a vacation rental in the city, and is a practicing attorney in South Carolina. Im glad to see taxes arent rising. It seems to me you all have done a very good job with the money, Kerr said. Someday, I hope to retire here, he said. Woodland said thats good news. The city can always use another retired attorney to sit on a board or committee. Welcome sign again vandalizedThe Rotary Club of Anna Maria Island welcome sign Manatee Avenue was damaged for a second time in less than two months, according to club Sept. 17. It also was damaged in August. Zemmer blamed the damage on vandals and vowed to restore the sign to its original state. Islander Photo: Kathy Prucnell

Drink up the grog me hearties or be you a scurvy bilge rat. While not necessarily the greeting for guests to the Anna Maria Island Privateers second annual Grog Fest, it was a pirates day Sept. 22 at the Drift In, 120 Bridge St., Bradenton Beach. While the Privateers sometimes put on an intimiwas to raise money for their scholarship fund. Each year, the group helps college students advance by providing assistance. A dozen bars and restaurants entered their interpretation of grog into the annual contest to claim bragging rights for the year. According to Roger Hoodat Murphree, the inaugural event last year raised $1,000, and we are hoping to double that this year, he said. The term grog dates back to the pirate days where a ships quartermaster would add rum to the crews water supply. Murphree said fresh water didnt last long on voyages and the rum helped to keep the water clean. That was a technique used not only by pirates, but most of the worlds navies, he said. The water was usually stored in oak kegs and would go stagnate after just a few days. The rum killed the bacteria and kept the water drinkable. Todays grog is any mixture of alcohol concoctions, minus the beer. Guests to the Grog Fest tasted a dozen samples and voted on their favorite, and the Privateers created a traveling trophy for the winner to keep for a year. Last years grog winner, the Drift In, was this years host, and this years big winner: Big Fish Real Estate. Anna Maria Island Privateers Debbie Stumbles Murphree and Alex Zuchniewicz embrace on Bridge Street at their Sept. 22 grog party, which included the pirate duties of handing out beads, selling scurvy dogs and testingg grog offered in a friendly competition by 12 local establishments.

18 SEPT. 26, 2012 THE ISLANDER Rely Maintenance Services Residential and estate cleanouts Call the one you can RELY on! 941-243-6995 Work to repair Bradenton Beach dingy dock to begin Repairs to the dingy dock, south of the Bradenton Beach Historic Bridge Street Pier and across from the Bridgetender Restaurant, are expected to begin. The dock was severely damaged in June during Tropical Storm Debby. Islander Photo: Mark Young By Mark Young Islander Reporter Three months after Tropical Storm Debby all but destroyed the Bradenton Beach dingy dock adjacent to the Historic Bridge Street Pier, repair work is set to begin. Last month, Bradenton Beach Police Department Lt. John Cosby announced that the Federal Emergency Management Agency approved three projects to repair damages caused by TS Debby. A seawall at the end of 11th Street South, the day dock at the pier and the dingy dock all received preapproval from FEMA. The agency will reimburse 75 percent of the citys project costs. Cosby, at the Sept. 20 city commission meeting, said work on the seawall was just about completed and asked commissioners for authorization to begin work on the dingy dock. Commissioner Gay Breuler motioned to approve the dingy dock repairs. Commissioner Jan Vosburgh seconded the motion, which passed 4-0. Commissioner Ric Gatehouse was absent with excuse. Once the dingy dock is back in shape, the city is expected to begin work on the day dock, which was before Debby. The tropical storm caused further damage and ensured the dock would remain closed. In other city matters, commissioners approved installation of an underground, 500-gallon propane tank near public works and the BBPD. The generator issue arose during the budget process when commissioners scrutinized the public works budget. Public works director Tom Woodard told commissioners a prior administration approved the purchase of a new generator that would keep the city operational during a storm. The installation, however, was never approved and the new generator has remained crated for more than two years. The generator was purchased to replace the citys World War II-era equipment. Woodard said the propane tank would be underground, but an exact location has yet to be determined. When they come out, we will discuss the best place, but it will be underground, he said. We have everything set up for the generator. Woodard said the new generator and propane tank could run the citys administrative, police and public works departments nonstop for 10 days. A power outage would shut down city hall, but administrators would move emergency operations to the public works facility. Breuler motioned to approve the installation. Vosburgh seconded the motion that passed 4-0. Commissioners also passed a motion to authorize a letter of no objection for a project at the BeachHouse Restaurant, 200 Gulf Drive N. The restaurant has submitted a proposal to build a storage facility for the gift shop. According to city planner Alan Garrett, the project meets city, state and federal requirements. Vice Mayor Ed Straight asked what was currently at the location of the proposed building. Garrett said the building is being located on an area that already has most of the concrete slab in place, and would not present itself as an obstacle. Breuler provided the boards only liaison report to close out the Sept. 20 meeting. She said she attended the Anna Maria Island Chamber of Commerce meeting with Manatee County Commissioners John Chappie and Carol Whitmore. There has been an ordinance created by the state that there can be no changes in any rental ordinance currently in place in any city in Florida, said Breuler. The League of Cities is very much against this because it erodes our home rule and Florida has always been a strong home-rule state. The state statute requires future zoning and code changes treat residential and rental properties equally. Breuler said Whitmore and Chappie requested from city commissioners a letter opposing the state law. Commissioners gave a consensus to sign a letter of opposition, but wanted Breuler to check with the county commissioners to see if they had a form before directing Perry to write a new one.Fishing hook-and-line cleanup slated for Saturday Sarasota Bay Watch will host its fourth annual Sarasota Bay Fishing Line Cleanup Day Saturday, Sept. 29, at the Sarasota Sailing Squadron, 1717 Ken Thompson Parkway, Sarasota.

Islander Photo: Mark Young By Mark Young Islander Reporter The last thing Bradenton Beach city commissioners wanted to hear was there could be another delay that would push the Historic Bridge Street Pier reconstruction project closer to tourist season. But that was the message received Sept. 20 during the city commission meeting at Bradenton Beach City Hall, 107 Gulf Drive N. Based on recommendations from the city pier team, commissioners previously approved a plan to hire The thinking behind the pier teams recommendation was the hire would save time because he was the engineer of record for a previous pier project. But that has not been the case. The city and Sego an insurance claim against Segos insurer in the event a City attorney Ricinda Perry and Sego have been trying to work through the stalemate for more than a month but, according to Perry, Sego has gone quiet on further negotiations. The commission met and authorized a contract contract, and he said he would not accept it. Perry said it appears Sego is trying to contract on behalf of his insurance company. So, I explained this to Mr. Sego and asked him issues, to please let me speak to his attorney, she said. That was on Aug. 15, and I have not received anything from Mr. Sego or his attorney explaining the sticking point. Perry told commissioners she wanted to be sure the citys position to protect itself was a standard contract concern, so she sought two separate legal opinions and was told that, yes, the city needed that protection in its engineering contract. Perry said she shared that information with Sego and informed him that the city would be discussing the contract Sept. 20. And I have received no response from Mr. Sego, she said. It is my legal opinion that it is not in the best interest of the city to strike that provision from the contract. Perry said she understood the citys urgency to complete the pier project before tourist season and would strike the provision if commissioners agreed. She also provided the alternative solution of drafting a request for proposal and bid the project in an attempt to retain a new engineer. If the commission wants to expedite an RFP for someone else, I believe that can be handled, she said. Commissioner Jan Vosburgh asked Perry if she had spoken with Segos insurance company. I dont know who the insurance company is, said Perry. Mr. Sego has not provided me with the name of the insurance company. Vosburgh said it sounds like Sego is no longer interested in the project. Thats just weird, she said. I dont know what his problem is. Hes obviously not interested. Commissioner Gay Breuler agreed. Part of me says if the guy doesnt want to give us the information and hes not showing up to the meeting, then maybe hes pulling away, scared or doesnt want to do it, she said. Mayor John Shaughnessy said the city is caught in a Catch-22. This is something we have to do, and its time sensitive, he said. I dont want that pier closed during season. If that pier is closed for any length of time, the restaurant will suffer, too. But I dont want to put the city in jeopardy. If he wont respond, then maybe he doesnt want to do it. 5 An RFP would get more than two responses, he said. People are still looking for work out there and this is not a complicated project. Breuler also asked the opinion of public works director Tom Woodard, whose department maintains the pier. When I deal with things like this, and you have Mr. Sego not responding when he is aware of our timeframe and importance of this project, I would personally move on, Woodard said. If we have that kind of problem with him now, we could have a lot more problems with him down the road, said Vosburgh. Shaughnessy asked and received a consensus from the commissioners to authorize Perry to draft an RFP. Perry said she would have the RFP ready to present to the commission at its Oct. 4 meeting.

Chappie was on hand to hear citizen concerns regarding beach erosion. Islander Photos: Courtesy Kathy Caserta By Mark Young Islander Reporter Rapid transformation could be a term applied to beach erosion issues, or lack thereof, across Anna Maria Island sand in June, and TS Isaacs subsequent return of sand in July. The two storms had different effects along the island shore, but the Bradenton Beach Club including about 52 condo owners in Bradenton Beach believes the situation could have been worse if not for sea oats. If the two storms had one thing in common, it would be the loss of the very sea oats that residents say protected beaches. Sea oats are a natural plant species on island beaches that contribute to building dunes. They provide a root system that helps keep sand and dunes in place during a tidal surge. As was evidenced during Debby, the dunes with sea oats helped prevent washover. The dunes, however, still suffered losses, leaving what BBC residents are calling AMI cliffs or half dunes, where noticeable escarpments were created. Kathy Caserta, a beachfront homeowner in Holmes Beach, said citizens have taken it upon themselves to plant sea oats to protect island shores, and she now wants the county to begin a planting program. Manatee County Commissioner John Chappie met with citizens Sept. 7 to hear their concerns on the state of island beaches. According to notes taken at the meet ing by BBC members, Chappie expressed concern for the beaches, but said nothing can be considered until sea turtle nesting season ends in October. Caserta said that since 2001, beachfront homeowners have planted and cared for more than 1,400 sea oats that perform vital beach protection. She said tourist tax dollars help maintain island beaches, but no protection, such as a sea-oat planting program exists. I believe we need a plan to distribute sea oats and have volunteers plant them if we wish to continue our future with beautiful beaches, said Caserta. The sea oats did their job, created the dune, protected our beaches and got washed away. Chappie said overall beach cleanup will resume after turtle nesting season, and beach re-nourishment is already funded for 2014. The commissioner did express interest in the BBCs idea to create a sea oat program. Caserta said she watched the devastation to the beaches as Debby moved up the Gulf of Mexico coastline. When the storm passed, there was no rush by me to run down to the edge of the sea oats, as I already knew the damage, she said. Im in an elevated home, and when the beachwalkers passed by, I could only see the tops of their heads, so I knew I would not be excited to see the results. Caserta said Chappie was receptive to the idea of a county program to plant sea oats because he understands the nature of the plant.High-speed transit needed for SRQ, but not likely soonWilliam Steele, new director of Manatee County Area Transportation District 1 community liaison.

He added one idea thats been kicked around by the Tampa Bay Area Regional Transportation Authority for a number of years is a high-speed or premium transit system to serve the Sarasota-Bradenton International The system, Howe said, is needed but has never gained momentum because it lacks funding. Howe said it would also need to run east-west to ease congestion to barrier islands in Sarasota and Manatee counties and at Lakewood Ranch. Its an idea, however, thats well into the future, Howe observed. near the Red Barn Flea Market, then travels across the Manatee River and into Palmetto before branching again into two separate highways past the convention center. This is a major choke point in downtown Bradenton, Howe said. About 100 people attended a recent charette on a proposal for a new bridge across the Manatee River. The Florida Department of Transportation will prepare a report on options for the choke point, make a recommendation and the MPO will decide where we go in the future, said Howe. In other business, Holmes Beach Mayor Rich Bohnenberger, the ITPO chairperson, thanked Anna Maria public works superintendent George McKay for his dedication to the Florida Department of Transportation and other transportation committees. Outgoing Manatee County Area Transit director Carl Hunsinger, who will be replaced Oct. 1 by William Steele, praised McKay and the island cities for working with MCAT and DOT. He noted how quickly McKay park at the Anna Maria City Pier while also allowing more room for vehicles to maneuver in the parking lot. Hunsinger said Sarasota County Area Transit also is getting a new director and MCAT and SCAT heads will meet monthly.

Anglers can motor right up to the schools of feed If using live baits, shiners will do the trick. If using arti as well as silver spoons and top-water plugs with silver sides. Remember, with all of this action occurring, expect to see plenty of sharks. Species include blacktip, spinner, sandbar, bull, hammerhead and bonnethead. I suggest using 3 feet of 100-pound hardwire after the big boys, you may want to increase your leader and hook sizes. These sharks are feeding on whatever migratory species are in the area, so make use of these species for bait. A chunk of Spanish mackerel or bonito is like candy to a shark.

A Clark spoon trailed behind a popping cork is a great choice to add to your arsenal, says Oldham. Gotcha plugs and hook baited with a live shiner or shrimp will get you hooked up. Add a split shot about 18 inches above your bait and drag the bottom around the pilings. When you is subtle, so it may take a few nibbles to get the hang of it. Finally, Oldham is hearing from the charter captains and catch-and-release snook are being boated daily by their clients. Most of the trout are in the 15to18-inch range, while the reds being caught are running up to 25 inches. north Sarasota Bay and around the Cortez kitchen for mangrove snapper. Johnston is using live shiners and shrimp to catch this past week, which is a great size for a bay catch. Along with snapper, Johnston is catching numerous juvenile gag and red grouper, as well as decent numbers of keeper-size sheepshead. For the sheepies, Johnston is using whole live shrimp or fresh-cut pieces. Capt. Rick Gross of Fishy Business charters is worklive shiners for bait and also for chum. Once he locates target in a feeding mood. His clients then cast free-lined shiners into the strike zone to hook up. Most reds being caught this week were in the 20to 24-inch range. In Sarasota Bay, Gross is seeing decent numbers of catch-and-release snook although most are in the 20-inch range. Again, Gross is anchoring and chumming shiners to get the bite going. In these same areas, Gross is hooking up spotted seatrout up to 22 inches. Finally, Gross is putting his clients on deep grass adding a small split shot about 12 inches up the line from a shiner. This aids in getting the bait toward the bottom, in the strike zone. Snapper up to 14 inches are the norm. Capt.

Migratory species being caught at the pier include Spanish mackerel, jack crevalle, blue runners and small sharks. If youre targeting macks, Medley suggests keeping the bait in the upper part of the water column toward the top. Once the bait reaches depths of 4 or 5 feet below the surface, expect to catch jack crevalle and blue runners. For sharks, simply cast out a small chunk of any of the species mentioned to get in on the action. Dont forget to use a wire leader if you plan on landing a shark.

Cost of the event is $5 and includes appetizers and a number of door prizes. Reservations are requested. The October chamber business lunch will be held 11:30 a.m.-1 p.m. Wednesday, Oct. 3. at Eat Here restaurant, 5315 Gulf Drive, Holmes Beach. Cost of the lunch is $15 and members are encouraged to bring a guest. Reservations are required for the lunch. For more information, call 941-778-1541.Chamber going green The Anna Maria Island Chamber of Commerce is doing its part to reduce consumption of resources. A press release from chamber president Mary Ann Brockman announced that beginning in October, the monthly listing of events will be emailed to members. Postcards will no longer be mailed. Brockman said the switch to email would save trees, not to mention the postal expense. Did you know it takes 39 gallons of water to make a single pound of paper? she asked. According to a paper trade publication, the United States uses 25 percent of the worlds paper products each year. The chamber will continue to print the monthly newsletter and include an events page, but the newsletter and calendar will be in a new format. We hope you enjoy the new look, and we look for ward to your participation at our events, said Brockman. Brockman also announced a chamber partnership event 4-7:30 p.m. Wednesday, Nov. 7, at the Bradenton Area Convention Center, 1 Haben Blvd., Palmetto. Chambers from Manatee, Sarasota and Anna Maria Island will display new products, services, accommodations and restaurant features. The event will include hors doeuvre and appetizers provided by participating restaurants. A cash bar will likely be available, as was the case in 2011, she said. More than 1,200 people attended the 2011 partner ship, and Brockman expects even better attendance this year. Businesses may reserve both space at the event, or obtain more information by calling 941-778-1541.
