THE FREE VOICE OF ANNA MARIA ISLAND DECEMBER 17, 1992

Spacious new look for Anna Maria City Hall?


By Mark Ratliff
Contributing Reporter
Anna Maria's City Hall may be in for some re-
modeling. Preliminary plans unveiled last week
range from utilitarian office space to the construc-
tion of a "for-show" clock-tower-entrance (but, in
any case, the public will be getting an upgraded
restroom, for sure.)
Yearning to have all of the city's administra-
tive offices under one roof, the Commission heard a
couple of proposals from builder Steve Kring at the
Commissioner's December 8 workshop meeting.
Kring showed the Commission how 600 square feet
of office space could be added onto the Pine Avenue
side of City Hall, and he suggested a clock tower as
a way of hiding the area where the addition and the
existing building would merge.
"This would give the side on Pine Avenue a new
face," Kring said, explaining that the Pine Avenue side
of the building is more readily seen than its Gulf Drive
exposure. Kring also said that additions on the Pine
Avenue side would be the most cost-effective way to
get the extra space the City wants.
Frank Tyndall, the City's public works direc-
tor, agreed. Tyndall said that adding on to the back
of the building would interfere with the Sheriff's
Office gas pump as well as the City Hall emergency
electrical generator. He estimated that the addition
would cost roughly $28,000 to $32,000 for the "Plain
Jane" version (without the clock tower).
Kring did not say how much the tower would in-


A building permit issued by the City of Braden-
ton Beach for the Vienna Castle, 100 block of Bridge
Street, was in question at the regular meeting of the
Bradenton Beach City Council on Thursday, Decem-
ber 3. It seems it was issued through an administra-
tive error.
The Council, the City Attorney, the City's Build-
ing Official Joe Romano, and William Brisson, the
City's Planner of Record, discussed the deficiencies
needed to be addressed and the proposed solutions.

crease the cost of the project.
"If we decide to go with it," Mayor Ray
Simches said, "we'll put it out for bids. We have yet
to find the money to build it. Contributions are al-
ways accepted."


Whether or not the Commission can scrape to-
gether the money for the addition, it agreed that the
top priority will be to install a restroom at City Hall
which meets nationally-recognized standards for use
by disabled persons.

Qualifying time

now in Anna

Maria
The City of Anna Maria will hold its City Coun-
cil Election on Tuesday, February 9, 1993. The
Qualifying Period to run for two of the two-year com-
mission seats is currently taking place and will end at
noon Tuesday, December 22, 1992.
The two incumbents who occupy the seats at
present are Commissioners George McKay and Mary
Ross. Commissioner and Vice-Mayor McKay has
already filed his papers. Commissioner Ross has offi-
cially stated she will not run for re-election.
The qualifying instructions and other require-
ments are currently available at Anna Maria City
Hall, 10005 Gulf Drive, Anna Maria.

ITPO opposes

Manatee bridge
The Island Transportation Planning Organiza-
tion (ITPO) passed a resolution opposing the New
Manatee Avenue Bridge. The vote was two to one
against the resolution.
In other business, the ITPO passed another reso-
lution approving the additional membership of the
Airport Authority to the Metropolitan Planning Orga-
nization.


Discussion continued in reference to zero park-
ing availability and mixed use on Bridge Street, and
that the owner of the property was in the process of
taking care of the lighting.
At the end of the discussion, Councilman John
Kaufmann moved to waive the fee for filing, to in-
clude the City publishing the proper notices and pay-
ing for them. If this was done, it would allow the
property's owner to apply for a Special Exception.
The entire Council agreed.

I'd walk 2,500 feet for a Bud


By Mark Ratliff
Contributing Reporter
A disgruntled Pete Cain appeared before the Anna
Maria City Commission last week to once again plead his
case to be allowed to serve beer and wine at his restaurant
on South Bay Boulevard.

located within 2,500 feet of an-
other business doing so. Candy
Cain's is right next door to Fast
Eddie's (which serves alcohol), and the proximity pre-
vents Cain from serving up anything stronger than a
Shirley Temple.
"The key is equity without proliferation," Com-
missioner Doug Wolf said at the City's December 8
workshop meeting.
Wolfe said he has been investigating ways to
balance the needs of businesses like Cain's with the
desire of a vocal number of Anna Maria residents who
do not want any more establishments selling alcohol.
"Christmas shopping tip; shoes are 854 at the bowling alley!"

One possible solution, Wolfe explained, might
be to amend the City's ordinance to set variable dis-
tance limits between businesses of different types. He
suggested that separate categories could be created for
bars, grocery stores selling beer and wine, and restau-
rants serving alcoholic bev-
erages with meals. Wolfe
said the 2,500 foot separa-
n's is right tion between bars would

Mayor Ray Simches
noted that it has been sug-
gested that the City have no
distance limitations at all,
and simply let the market place determine how many.
alcohol-selling establishments there will be.
"This has been going on for years," resident Roy
Dunlap chided the Commission.
"When will we see a firm proposal?"
Probably not for at least a couple of weeks, the
Commission indicated, since a consultation with the
City Attorney will be necessary to determine what the
City can and can't do in regulating (or deregulating)
the sale of alcohol.

Bridge Street

re-development

update
The progress of the re-development project involv-
ing Bridge Street in Bradenton Beach has reached the
computerized graphic design stage. Tomorrow, the
City's Community Re-development Committee will
present state-of-the-art renderings to the City Council.
'The designs are a semblance of old and new ideas
blended together. The designs are based on the ideas that
came out of the three and one-half hour public meeting
with the City and its citizenry on December 1, plus new
ideas offered by such agencies as Florida's Department of
Transportation (DOT) and Florida Power & Light
(FPL)," said Clem Dryden, chairman of the Community
Re-development Agency.
"I just got through with a meeting today (December
10) with the Chief of the District of the DOT, FPL repre-
sentatives, architects, engineers and landscapers to com-
plete the project's finalization of the committee's recom-
mendations so we can present them to the City on the
17th. The graphics are exciting. There are concepts that
the DOT supports that will be found in no other city in the
state. They go along with supporting a good economic
base and a high level of safety for residents and tourists,"
Dryden continued.
Dryden did not want to let any designs out of the
Committee's bag until they are presented to the Braden-
ton Beach City Council on Thursday, December 17, at 1
p.m. at city hall.
One and all are invited to attend.

Beach user fees

discussed again
Bradenton Beach City Councilman John Kaufmann
addressed the bobbing issue of user fees for public
beaches on Anna Maria Island.
Kaufmann stated that on April 9 of this year the
Bradenton Beach City Council passed a joint resolution
regarding beach user fees and that the Cities of Holmes
Beach and Anna Maria refused to sign it at that time.
Kaufmann went on to suggest the Council create a
modified version of the original resolution for only the
City of Bradenton Beach to sign, and send it to the Mana-
tee County Commission. The new resolution would in-
clude user fees for Coquina Beach, Cortez Beach and Bay
Side Park.
The unanimous decision of the Council was to in-
struct its city attorney to prepare a resolution regarding
beach user fees for the beaches mentioned above, and to
dedicate the user funds to the City of Bradenton Beach.
The Council also agreed to have the City's mayor, Katie
Pierola, contact both Holmes Beach and Anna Maria City
governments to see if they would sign Bradenton Beach's
new resolution.

Just a note of thanks
from the publisher ...
... to the many persons, most unknown to me by
name, who stop in the office to say thanks for the new
Island paper. So many come in just to say thanks, and
we appreciate their comments and support.
Yes, we will continue to be free for residents and
visitors while they are here, to read and enjoy for as
long as I am publisher.
No, we will never try to sell our paper to you -
for a quarter or any other price. Mail subscriptions
will be offered in the near future, for those who prefer
the convenience of delivery in their mailbox or for
out-of-state friends and part-time residents.
Meanwhile, we continue to grow, in advertising,
and subsequently in the number of pages. It is gratify-
ing to all of us and there are a lot of people behind
the scenes helping to make this endeavor a success -
to produce a product that has been so readily accepted
by Islanders.
We all wanted the community put back in our
newspaper. We hope to continue to strive to this end.
A special note of thanks to the advertisers, the
business backbone of the Island. Without your faith
and a little trust in our promise to deliver the news, we
wouldn't be here.
sign it here...


Well wishes from Mayor Simches
On behalf of the City Commission, we wish you
well in your new effort. The Island communities have
need for a local paper that provides coverage of activi-
,.ties of our local gove rnents,, i school, theater, the


Community Center, civic events and so forth.
Again, our very best wishes for the success of
The Islander/Bystander!

I'm very happy that we finally have an "Island"

Beach user fees

discussed again
Bradenton Beach -City Councilman John
Kaufmann addressed the bobbing issue of user fees for
public beaches on Anna Maria Island.
Kaufmann stated that on April 9 of this year the
Bradenton Beach City Council passed a joint resolu-
tion regarding beach user fees and that the Cities of
Holmes Beach and Anna Maria refused to sign it at
that time.
Kaufmann went on to suggest the Council create
a modified version of the original resolution for only
the City of Bradenton Beach to sign, and send it to the
Manatee County Commission. The new resolution
would include user fees for Coquina Beach, Cortez
Beach and Bay Side Park.
The unanimous decision of the Council was to
instruct its city attorney to prepare a resolution regard-
ing beach user fees for the beaches mentioned above,
and to dedicate the user funds to the City of Bradenton
Beach. The Council also agreed to have the City's
mayor, Katie Pierola, contact both Holmes Beach and
Anna Maria City governments to see if they would
sign Bradenton Beach's new resolution.


T-backs banned

in county
The Manatee County Commission has approved an
ordinance banning the controversial T-back bathing suit
in county parks and on county property.
However, skimpy bathing attire will still be permit-
ted on most of the Island's beaches in the wake of the law
aimed at banning derriere-revealing swim suits as the law
only pertains to Coquina Beach and the Manatee Public
Beach on AnnaMaria Island. Other beaches on the Island
-are exempt from the apparel prohibition as they are not.
under county jurisdiction.
Ironically, much of the Manatee Avenue Causeway
fronting Palma Sola Bay a popular spot for the scantily
clad -is also exempt, as it is within the boundaries of the
city of Bradenton.
T-back proponents have vowed to challenge the
law.


Coast Guard

seeks comments
Public notice has been issued as such: The Coast
Guard has issued Public Notice 24-92 requesting com-
ments for the location and plans for the proposed replace-
ment of the bascule bridge with high level fixed bridge at
ICW mile 89.2 on SR 64, between Perico Island and
Anna Maria Key across Sarasota Pass, Manatee County,
FL. The Public Notice solicits comments through Decem-
ber 28, 1992. Write to Commander, Seventh Coast Guard,
District (oan), Brickell Plaza Federal Building, Room
406, 909 S.E. 1st Avenue, Miami, FL 33131-3050. Tele-
phone number is (305) 536-5621. Office hours are 7:30
a.m. to 4 p.m., Monday through Friday.


Bradenton Beach

sanitation rate to

increase
Attorney for the City of Bradenton Beach Alan
Prather read the proposed ordinance, Ordinance 92-
272-A Sanitation Rates, with the upshot being a 13%
increase in the City's sanitation rates.
Councilman Jack Charlton moved to approve the
ordinance for the first reading and set the public hear-
ing and second reading for Thursday, December 17, at
1 p.m. during the Council's next regular meeting. The
vote was carried unanimously.
In other business, Commissioner Herb Dolan
moved to adopt the "City of Bradenton Beach Policy
for Non-violent Civil Rights Demonstrations." This
was also unanimously passed.


Bradenton Beach

spends a little

money
The Bradenton Beach City Council OK'd two
expenditures during its meeting held December 3.
Two hundred and fifty-three dollars were ap-
proved for Bradenton Beach Mayor Katie Pierola to
attend a Florida Shore and Beach Preservation Asso-
ciation meeting in February,' 1993. Next, the Council
decided to spend the money previously budgeted for
the City to join the Tampa Bay Regional Planning
Commission (T.B.R.P.C.) and spend it on updating
the City's Christmas banners. The money would have
just sat there because the City had decided, long after
the City's budget was established, not to join the
T.B.R.P.C. this year.



Commission: give

us a legal sign
It was once said of a master debater that she
would argue with a sign on a post. In the City of Anna
Maria, the debater would win if she picks the right
opponents.
At its December 8 workshop meeting, Doug
Wolfe reported that there are a number of traffic con-
trol signs within the municipality which do not meet
state requirements and others which just aren't
needed.
Wolfe said that an in-depth study of the City's
signs will be done to determine the legality of signs,.
whether new ones are needed, and if some can be re-
moved. Wolfe noted that among other irregularities
that can be found through the City, the crosswalk
signs at the I.G.A. and the post office are not currently
legal.
Mayor Ray Simches urged the public to contact
Wolfe with any suggestions concerning signs.



Three seek home

occupational

licenses
At its December 8 workshop meeting, the Anna
Maria City Commission discussed the applications of
three residents who have asked to be granted home
occupation licenses.
Mark Ratliff, Richard Lease and Trish
L'Heareux all want to operate businesses form their
: ,,homes, and by ordinance they must have a license and
''agree to meet certain requirements. Among other
things, in-home business must not generate traffic to
and from the residence, cause noise, or in any way
detract from the neighborhood. The storage of danger-
ous chemicals and other materials is also prohibited.
Ratliff, a journalist, explained to the Commis-
sion that he will be operating a television transcription
service from his home in the 9000 block of Gulf
Drive. He assured the Commission his business would
comply completely with the ordinance. Ratliff will be
doing business as 13 Transcripts.
Lease and L'Heareux were not in attendance at
the meeting, but Commissioner Mary Ross said she
had interviewed them both. According to Ross, Lease,
who resides in the 100 block of Gulf Drive, is a car-
penter and handyman who will use his home primarily
to take phone calls related to his business. Lease will
be doing business as Sable Palm Carpentry-Handy-
man.
Ross said that L'Heareux, of Jacaranda Road, is
a hobbyist who creates items at home, but sells them
at craft fairs and flea markets. L'Heareux will be do-
ing business as AMI Enterprises.
The Commission will vote on the approval of the
three license applications at its regular meeting on
December 22.

Choosing where to dine can be a difficult task. Here are
just a few of our recommendations.
In Holmes Beach, O'Keefe's, The Wine Cellar, has a
small and very friendly room for dining and an even smaller
bar for tasting a variety of wines by the glass along with some
enticing food fare, of course. They recently celebrated the ar-
rival of the "nouveau" beaujolais, and still have a few bottles
for enjoyment with a meal or just for the annual tasting. The
pat6 and cheese tray goes perfect with the wine, or with the
vast assortment of imported beers offered. Lunch or dinner,
plus Sunday Champagne breakfast. Call 778-5440.
The Sandbar in Anna Maria at the Gulf end of Spring
Street, must be one of the oldest restaurant's on the Island, if
not one of the most popular. Deck dining is so popular, that
frequently there is a wait for a table. Never fear though, it's
worth your while, and they'll gladly offer you frozen concoc-

Cafe Robar is a popular night spot on the island, thanks
to Chuck Senrick, piano bar entertainer. But you'd be missing
some really delicious dining opportunities at lunch and dinner,
even on Sunday for brunch, and at very reasonable prices if
you only go there for a twirl on the dance floor. Don't let the el-
egant furnishings and designer appointments keep you away
because, like everyone else on this little Island, Robar encour-
ages you to relax and come in casual attire.
In the historic village of Cortez, (that's over the
Cortez bridge, but part of our Island community none the
less), we recommend Tyler's Ice Cream for delicious
sweets and the one of the best milk shakes around. The hot
fudge isn't too shabby either.

Island tattletale 12/16/92


The Island Tattletale
50 years ago in Van Wert, Ohio
Terry Edgar Huffine, son of Mr. and Mrs. Edgar
Huffine of south of the city, got the wanderlust re-
cently, climbed a fence which enclosed his play-
ground and with his dog started on a tour of the farm.
When missed by his mother, men on horseback
roamed the farm and field and found him about 30
minutes later wandering in a pasture field about a half
mile from home.
This story originally appeared on the front page
of the The Van Wert Times-Bulletin, Saturday, Aug. 1,
1942, Van Wert, Ohio, and recently again in their "50;
years ago" feature.
Do you have a tale to tattle? The Islander/By-
stander will be happy to hear about it. And we won't
tell who told either.

Holiday thoughts from the Island Poet
It seems to me in those Christmases gone by
The presents for the grandchildren were so easy to buy
The girls would want a dolly or a little doll bed
And the boys would want a small truck or a wagon
that's red ., ..
But today the girls think you are loaded to the hilt
For they must have only those jeans by Vanderbilt
And the boys whose feelings must be the same
Expect you to buy a computer or a video game
For the two of us it's very plain to see
Those kids have never heard of Social Security
BudAtteridge

Let's not leave out fishing! With
all the controversy over the new bridges
to and from Anna Maria Island, let's
not forget that bridges should be for
more than just cars.
Bridge fishing is part of our way
of life in Florida, especially on good
fishing grounds like the Sound so
let's make sure provisions are made on
any new bridge design for people to
congregate and
fish safely. The
City of .
Sarasota was Bridge fishing is p,
forced to build
a fishing pier in Florida, especia
over a so-so grounds like the Sc
fishing spot
some years ago sure provisions are
when DOT de- bridge designforp
cided to outlaw
bridge fishing and fish safely.
there (and got
away with it).
Don't let it
happen here.
Speaking of piers, it's good to see
those new planks on the Anna Maria
City Pier being put in by Fast Eddie's
crew. Surely sorely needed, I'm told the
new planks are just the beginning-so a
big thank you to Fast Eddie's ... and
when are you going to finish the job?
That "mountain" should tip you
off that work is underway on Leffis
Key. Once an island of its own, Leffis
became part of Anna Maria when
dredge spoil was used to create a
"causeway" between the two.
Last summer and fall work began
on the "Coquina Bay Walk at Leffis
Key" with clearing and removal of ex-
otic plant species. The earth-movng
we're seeing now begins actual restora-
tion with the excavation of intertidal
pools, tidal inlets and later,
construction of a boardwalk and a foot-
bridge to it.
The fill material dug out from the
key and adjoining shorelines of Co-
quina Beach Bayside Park will be used
to create dunes designed to cut off the
sights and sounds of nearby traffic.
When completed the project is
hoped to be a model dredge-spoil resto-
ration for other areas, and Manatee
County schools will use the Baywalk as
an environmental education site. The

Have you heard about the mana-
tee hearing tests taking place at Lowry
Park Zoo in Tampa? Marine biologists
from Florida Atlanta University and
Mote Marine are training and testing
two zoo manatees in an effort to figure
out why the critters don't get out of the
way of oncoming boats.
In a two-year, $200,000 project
funded with public and private funds,
the scientists are hoping to create a de-
vice that attaches to boats and gives an
audible warming to manatees. Of
course, first they have to figure out just
what the gentle beasts can and cannot
hear. Then they probably have to figure
out how to shout "LOOK OUT!" in
manatee talk.

considered for this space, just drop me

Dewey Curtis of the Rod & Reel Pier says it's
been slow. Sheepshead are being caught with crabs
and redfish are being caught with shrimp.
Arkee from the Bradenton Beach Pier has been
catching nice size sheepshead using shrimp and squid
during the day. He also reports they are catching
flounder, trout and whiting at night using shrimp and
squid for bait.
Captain Rick Gross reports they have been
catching a couple of redfish and sheepshead. He also
says it has been slow because of the bad weather
we've been having lately.
John Fernandez of Discount Tackle says sheep-
shead are around the piers and bridges and trout has
been caught in the grass flats using love lures and jigs.
Captain Todd Romaine says redfish have been
his main stay this week with a few trout mixed in.

Captain Mike Heistand on his boat, "Magic,"

Captain Mark Bradow reports redfish and trout

Golf is more than luck
by Bob Woods, The Golf Shop


The shot of a lifetime
Ernie Cotton, a former resident of Holmes Beach,
says, "No luck. It was all skill."
Last October; Ernie was playing in a benefit golf
tournament outside of Dallas, Texas, at the Great South-
west Golf Course. On the par three, 157 yard, fifth hole
was a shinny new Buick, a hole-in-one prize.
Ernie stepped up with a five iron, took a smooth
back swing, and hit the ball crisp, sailing it straight at the
pin. The ball bounced and jumped into the cup.
"The wind was in my face, so I chose a little more
club and hit a knock-down-shot," explained Ernie.
Ernie drove away in the new Buick!


Play it again Ernie
The knock-down shot is a stroke saver when hit-
ting into the wind. To hit this shot, select more club
than you would usually hit. Start with 70% of your
weight on the left side (right side if you are left
handed). The ball is played back in your stance with
the hands forward. Make a shorter back swing and hit
through the ball. This will produce a low-boring shot
into the wind.
If you have any golf news or need a golf tip with
your game, we'd love to hear from you. Contact The
Islander/Bystander at 778-7978 or stop by The Golf
Shop in the Island Shopping Center.

Students carry home news
The principal of Anna Maria Elementary has
given his permission for The Islander/Bystander to be
distributed through the student body.
"It's important that all our Island residents, in-
cluding those with children, are aware of Island
events," explained Jim Kronus, principal, about his
support of the Island's new, free, local newspaper. "I
look at it as a service to the community and a way to
continually meld the community and the school," he
continued.
"We are very pleased," stated Bonner Press-
wood, publisher of The Islander/Bystander, "it em-
phasizes our involvement with the community and, to
me, distributing our paper through the Island student
body solidifies what we are about. It's encouraging to
us, to say the least."
The Islander/Bystander will be found in back-
packs around the Island each Wednesday.

St. Bernard's Advent program
St. Bernard Catholic Church will have an Advent
Prayer Service on Friday, December 18, at 7 p.m. The

the hustle and bustle of holiday preparation and pre-
pare the way of the Lord."
St. Bernard is located at 248 S. Harbor Dr.,
