Bradenton Beach library breaks ground this month


By Joy Courtney
Editor
After close to a decade of plan-
ning, construction will start on the new
Tingley Memorial Library in Braden-
ton Beach within the month. The
Bradenton Beach City Council ac-
cepted the final plans of the architect
and contractor placed before it by John
Sandberg, president of the City's Li-
brary Board.
Sandberg proudly notes that the
funds for the library came to the City
in a bequeath of approximately
$480,000 from former Bradenton
Beach resident Beulah Hooks Hannah
Tingley who passed away in 1986 at
the age of 92.
"She told her library friends she
was going to leave the Library Board
some money for their cause. They ex-
pected, at most, a couple thousand dol-
lars, but close to half a million came as


a total surprise," stated Sandberg.
Tingley did tie some strings to
her largess.
The bequeath could only be used
for a library. If the city did not choose
to use the money to build and sustain a
library, then the funds were to be given
to a children's home in Lakeland.
The bequeath, received shortly after
Tingley's death, continues to be held in an
interest-bearing trust. At present the trust
has grown to be worth approximately
$750,000 $800,000.
With the Library Board and the
City of Bradenton Beach working to-
gether over the years, plans for con-
structing the 2,600 square foot library
were budgeted at $210,000. After the
project's completion, the operating
expenses of the library would be paid
annually, infinitas from the interest of
the trust's remaining principal. The
City of Bradenton Beach has a vested


interest in the quality of the building's
construction, since once the Tingley
Library is completed, it will be the
City's responsibility to maintain as a
public building.
With costs increasing faster than
action took place, the library's price
tag-came in at $243,152 $33,152
over the original budget. At the special
public meeting held about the library
last week, the architect and contractor
offered $17,000 worth of cost-saving
alternatives to bring the actual cost
closer to the original budget.
After their presentation, Councilman
Herb Dolan voiced the Council's common
concern, "I don't want to be cutting costs
now only to be increasing future mainte-
nance costs on the building later. We need
to think ahead and be careful."
Some cost-cutting suggestions
were in lieu of using an aluminum
store front with a 20 year finish to use


standard aluminum, use wooden rails
in lieu of aluminum, or change the
type of air grills used in the ceiling.
Most were cosmetic and deemed rea-
sonable enough to live with.
Understanding that every penny
saved in construction would increase
the library's yearly income from the
trust, but at the same time, to be care-
ful they were not being short-sighted,
the Council accepted the changes, ex-
cept for two. Council members said
they wanted to see price comparisons
and warranty criteria between the for-
merly proposed and the suggested
cost-cutting materials and equipment
to be used for the decking and the air
conditioning system.
The Council will schedule an-
other public meeting to study the com-
parisons once they are compiled.

Dolores joins staff of Islander/Bystander


Renowned Island advertising
sales associate Dolores Knutson has
joined the team of Anna Maria's free
voice The Islander/Bystander.
S Dolores brings to The Islander/
Bystander 18 years of advertising sales
experience and personal rapport with
the Island business community. She
started 18 years ago as an ad sales rep-
resentative for the now disbanded, Islander. Seven years ago,
she joined the staff of Anna Maria Island's Beachcomber and
comes to the Islander/Bystander from the advertising sales staff
of the Toronto Sun's, The Weekly, formerly the Island Sun.
Why the move from a major corporation's publication to
the Island's grassroots newspaper? "I kept reading each issue
of The Islander/Bystander along with the rest of the Island and


liked what I read. I felt the articles in each issue extolled, 'a sense
of community.' My family has lived in Anna Maria City for 33
years and I have raised two sons on the Island. It is important to
me that the Islander/Bystander thrives; I want to be a part of mak-
ing a true Island newspaper work," explained Dolores about her
decision.
Bonner Presswood, publisher of The Islander/Bystander,
said, "Dolores' expertise is unmatched. She helps us overcome an
obstacle, that of loyalty since many advertisers were reluctant to
leave her before. Now, the paper will grow, and, as it does, it will
be able to bring more and more news to the community."
"I am pleased the editorial style and content attracted and
met with Dolores' criteria of what a vital and viable community
newspaper should be. Dolores has put her livelihood behind the
spirit of the our philosophy and that will never change it will
only get better!" stated Editor Joy Courtney.

County starts water line project in Holmes Beach


By Joy Courtney
Editor
The construction activity at the intersection of
72nd Street and Palm Drive in Holmes Beach is the
starting point of Manatee County Public Work's Key
Royale Water Transmission Line project (KRWTL).
According to Manatee County Public Works
Project Manager Jim Rogers, the KRWTL is one of
many projects under the County's 20 year water main-
tenance plan. The necessity of the project grew out of
the need to increase water pressure and fire line capac-
ity to Key Royale.
Copeland Development, whose President is
Holmes Beach resident Eugene Copeland with offices
in Bradenton, earned the open bid contract from the
County. "Though co-incidental, it is harmonious that
a local contractor got the job. Copeland understands
the feelings of his community and has included addi-
tional steps to ensure property (lawns and driveways)
will be replaced satisfactorily," said Rogers.
The contractor is replacing the existing eight-
inch pipe line with 12-inch pipe, therefore, increasing
the amount of water it can carry by approximately
125%. The project starts at 72nd Street and Holmes
Boulevard because this intersection's main tie-in af-
fords the shortest distance between the tie-in and Key
Royale. From this juncture, the new pipe line will con-
tinue to Marina Drive, down to 70th Street and up to
the cul-de-sac at the end of the street. It will then run
subaqueous under the Key Royale Pass to come up on
the Key Royale golf course. From there it will extend

proximately $322,000. This includes the contractor's
lowest bid award of $268,000 plus an additional 20%
for normal administrative, enforcement, inspection
and general overhead costs incurred by the County.
Rogers explained the water problem in Key
Royale isn't just because of growth in that particular
area; it's a matter of growth within the entire Braden-
ton area. He explained as the County'grows and de-
mand not only increases but spreads out further and
further from the water plant, located in the eastern part
of Manatee County, the existing water supply is con-
tinually challenged.
He further stated the funds for the KRWTL are
allocated from the County's water improvement ac-
count. The County designates approximately
$200,000 to $300,000 each year to take care of sched-
uled projects under its 20 year plan, such as the
KRWTL, as well as emergency maintenance.
The anticipated completion of the project is mid-
April 1993.

at Cafe Robar. The new officers, left to right, are Sandy Haas, secretary; Frank Davis,
1st vice-president; Mary Ann Sipe, president; Tom Nelson, treasurer, and Katie Pierola,

Just a note

The Islander/Bystander plans to take off like a jet
plane at O'Hare with the other flights stacked up on the
tarmac, waiting for a flight plan. We are thrilled that
Dolores Knutson, with 18 years experience in advertising
sales for Anna Maria's past newspapers, has joined our
team.
Dolores offered great opposition to our little
grassroots publication at her former place of employment.
We found ourselves dealing with two basic reasons that
advertisers were not "jumping in" our publication; con-
tracts and loyalty to Dolores. With the new year comes
the expiration of many of the contracts, and the welcom-
ing of Dolores and the loyalty attributed to her abilities,
her dedication and her commitment to the Island.
We are very pleased with the faith it took for
Dolores to join us. It took a lot of courage. The Islander/
Bystander is proud to have someone of Dolores' caliber
on our team ... and we hope you are too.

'Forty Carats' to be a

diamond of a show at

Island Players

A fresh updated "Forty Carats" will romp onto
the stage of the Island Players opening Thursday,
January 7, and continuing through January 23.
"It'll be fun. I think there'll be a lot of laughter in
the theater," commented Gary Breul, who directs this in-
ternational, inter-generational comedy. "It's a strong far-
cical story which delivers the message that love can come
knocking at our door at anytime during our lives."
The Broadway production of "Forty Carats," was
adapted by Jay Allen from a play by Barrillet and Gredy.
It opened in 1969, directed by Abe Burrows and starred
Julie Harris.
In the Island Players' presentation, Ellen Garthright
plays Ann Stanley, a 38-year-old divorcee and successful
Manhattan realtor whose car breaks down near an isolated
Greek village. She is rescued and introduced to the true
romance of Greece by charming 22-year-old Peter.
Latham portrayed by Dan Thompson.
Ann returns to New York and faces the com-
plexities of her feisty mother, Maud Hayes (Miriam
Ring), her independent 17-year-old daughter, Trina"
(Michelle Atwell), as well as those of her ex-husband,
-Billy Boylan (Jerry Bearce) and an eager client, Eddie
Edwards (Patrick McGrath). The plot thickens when
young Peter shows up as Trina's date.
An acting couple, Emilie and Gary Peterson,
have the roles of the senior Lathams, and Craig Drew
appears as a boyish and flirtatious golf champion.
In on the action is Ann's all-knowing secretary,
Mrs. Margolin, played by Laura Morales, who deals
with demanding clients such as Mrs. Adams, played
by Marge McKeever.
The Island Theater is at Gulf Drive and Pine
Avenue in Anna Maria. All shows start at 8 p.m. ex-
cept for the single matinee on Sunday, January 10,
which starts at 2 p.m. There are no performances ei-
ther Monday. Tickets at $9 are available at the theater
or by calling 778-5755. The box office is open daily
10 a.m. to 3 p.m. except Sundays.

You may have to pay to park at
some beaches on Anna Maria Island.
The Manatee County Commission
addressed the subject of beach parking
fees, user fees, at their Monday meeting
and directed county planners to analyze
a proposal to charge parking at public
beaches.
Their proposal specifically targets
visitors rather than county residents.
The issue puts the mayors of two
Island cities on opposing sides. Mayor
Pat Geyer of Holmes Beach is ada-
mantly opposed to the prospect of park-
ing fees, and Mayor Katie Pierola of
Bradenton Beach embraces and pro-
motes the fees, citing monumental
needs in association with the beaches,
and the need to fund corrective mea-
sures.
The support of county commis-


By Jon Thornburg
Retired Postal Inspector
Holmes Beach
The United States Postal Inspector
was traveling to a small village in rural
Nebraska. This little town of Mariaville
had but 22 or 23 residents living there.
Mariaville had been a great little
town ten or 15 years before. It had two
restaurants, a grocery store, three service
stations and a grain elevator. It also had a
bank and school, both well-known in the
area, and a third class post office with two
rural routes which served the town and its
surrounding community of seven or eight
hundred people. -
But, a sad day had come, the Postal
Inspector had been instructed to close
Mariaville's post office at the close of
business on the last day of the month.
As the inspector drove near the post
office, he saw a group of 20 to 25 people
congregating and protesting the closing of
their post office. They all knew that when
a town lost its post office the town was
dead.
The decrease in stamp sales and
#


sioners lies with a plan for staffed park-
ing gates, requiring persons from out-
side the county to pay a $3 fee per ve-
hicle at Coquina and Cortez beaches
and at Coquina Bayside Park. The plan
apparently does not include Manatee
County Public Beach in Holmes Beach
or the Palma Sola Causeway.
County officials propose to dis-
tribute stickers to residents, including
seasonal visitors, that allow free or dis-
counted access.
Of the 26 counties with public
beaches in Florida, all but eight charge
user fees. The fees range from 26-cent
tolls to a flat $3 fee per carload. Of
course, access to Boca Grande beaches
and Sanibel Island are restricted by
large bridge tolls, are more than $3.
The county proposes to finance
the project through long-term bonds, to
be reimbursed by the parking fees.


number of persons served by Mariaville's
post office was explained to the protesters;
soon they realized they were responsible
for what was happening.
As the group began to understand,
they admitted they bought their stamps at
a neighboring town because they did not
like the postmaster. They admitted that
they drove to another town to do their
shopping because groceries were a little
cheaper; bread could be bought for ten
cents less. They began to realize that sav-
ing five cents on a gallon of gas had
closed the town's service stations.
What happened to the community
of Mariaville?
Many of the houses became aban-
doned by their owners when they had lost
their jobs as the businesses closed. For
many, the price of their properties de-
creased to a point where some of them
were worthless.
The one silver lining in Mariaville's
dark cloud was its neighboring commu-
nity learned from Mariaville's mistakes
and adopted a program to patronize their
own businesses.


Selling liquor

to minors is illegal


Parents or members of the commu-
nity who believe under-aged children are
being sold alcohol, should be aware of the
steps they can take to correct the situation.
The governing body for liquor sales
is the Federal Division of Alcohol & To-
bacco. Sergeant Brad Nelson is the of-
ficer-in-charge of Division's Sarasota of-
fice and can be reached at 359-5640.
Before the Division can do any-
thing, a formal complaint must be made.
It was stated that the Division will accept
anonymous complaints, but the complain-
ant must be prepared to answer three
questions.
Who is allegedly selling liquor to
minors? At the very least, the Division
needs to know if the person is male or fe-
male, and, also, any other descriptive in-
formation available. Where is the liquor
allegedly being sold to minors? The Divi-
sion needs the complete address of the
business plus anything else known such as
"right over the counter," or "out the back


door." When is the liquor allegedly being
sold to minors? The Division needs to
know the time of day, day of week, etc.
As explained by a representative,
the Division of Alcohol & Tobacco must
make a "buy," using undercover agents,
three times before legal action is taken
against the owners of the business. After
the first successful "buy," the clerk selling
liquor to the agent is arrested and the busi-
ness is put on notice. The second "buy"
entails the clerk again being arrested and
the business is issued a final warning. If
the third "buy" is successful, the clerk is
arrested and charges are made against the
business with a conference scheduled
with the District Supervisor of the Divi-
sion.
The penalty based on no mitigating
circumstances, such as the employer hav-
ing a training program for his employees
in reference to the legalities of selling al-
cohol, is a $1,000 fine and 20 suspension
of the business's liquor license.

dressed, was one woman
who over the course of her
life broke a small stone off
the rock of the hardened con-
cept of equal rights for
women. A pebble, easily for-
gotten.
Hopefully, that won't
happen in Beulah's case.
Soon ground will be broken
for the Tingley Library in
Bradenton Beach to be built
with money bequeathed to
the City by Beulah for only
that purpose. After the rib-
bon-cutting, and much later
when our great-great-grand-
children go rushing off to the
"library" to finish a report,
Beulah will be remembered.
Beulah Rebecca Hooks


was born August 29,


1893, into the Lakeland, Florida pioneer family of
Thomas Jefferson and Louella Hulsey Hook, who
chose to raise their family in the nearby community of
Clermont. Along with her six siblings, Alton, Lloyd,
Nellie, Mamie, Hulsey and Tommy, Beulah experi-
enced life as a daughter of a citrus farmer as well as
two activists; her father served in the Florida Legisla-
ture from 1893 to 1895 and her mother was a pioneer
in her own right she was the first teacher in
Clermont.
Beulah's first of many reported accomplish-
ments appeared in the October 20, 1910, issue of The
Courier Informant, Bartow, Polk County newspaper.
At the age of 16, she addressed the Twentieth Annual
Reunion of the Florida Division United Confederate
Veterans held in Bartow. In a clear, loud and resound-
ing voice, a voice soon to become a major contributor


to her po-
litical fu-
ture, she
said in part
to the gath-
ered veter-
ans, "There
is not a sol-
dier among
you but that
has suf-


I see no reason why there should not be
equal representation of men and
women at the peace-planning table, for
women have as great, or greater, a
stake in peace the sons they bear."


fered all the
pains of
cold and
hunger or lain awake at night on the frozen ground
with the stars shining overhead, thinking with anguish
of loved ones at home."
"There is not a soldier among you but that, when
the war was over, with a courage too high for mortal
conception, went to work and rebuilt and helped to
rebuild our whole beautiful Southland as it is today."
"We of the younger generation cannot conceive
of the depths of your nobleness. It is too wonderful to
understand."
In a world without microphones, Beulah contin-
ued to develop her oratorical talents winning state rec-
ognition in her high school days. Beulah married John
B. Hannah (year unknown) who worked for the Atlan-
tic Coast Line railroad. From his obituary dated No-
vember 13, 1941, it is safe to assume he and Beulah
moved to Tampa from Lakeland in 1939 because of
his work. Being the woman behind the man, as she
was, Beulah still took with her her oratorical talents as
well as her active interest in the Democratic Party.
The Daily Sun- Gainesville, Florida, dated May
29, 1932, spoke of Beulah's previous activity within


the Democratic party from which the highlight of her
political career would blossom. The article read, "Mrs.
Beulah Hooks Hannah of Lakeland, one of the out-
standing workers for the Democratic party in Florida,
has recently announced her candidacy for delegate
from the state at large to the National Democratic
Convention. Mrs. Hannah is a native Floridian and


By Joy Courtney
Editor
Some might say former Islander Beulah Hooks
Hannah Tingley was a woman before her time. Her
beliefs lead to action which pioneered the power of
women from the voting booth to the United States
Supreme Court. Beulah, as she preferred to be ad-


given the honor of seconding the 1932 Democratic
presidential nominee. "The honor of seconding the
nomination of Franklin D. Roosevelt by the Florida
delegation will fall to Mrs. Beulah Hooks Hannah, it
was decided at a conference of the delegation in Jack-
sonville," stated the Lakeland Ledger & Star Tele-
gram, June 21, 1932.
Wearing a small brown straw hat, the forerunner
of her trademark wide-brimmed hats, Beulah ad-
dressed the 1932 National Democratic Convention.
According to an article written by Arthur Brisbane
which appeared in The Washington, D.C, Herald on
July 1, 1932, "Mrs. Beulah Hook Hannah, of Florida,
in a voice that combines the qualities of Stentor and
Bourke Cockran, is honored to second the nomination
of Roosevelt. No man here has spoken better than she
speaks. Roosevelt opponents try, but cannot drown her
voice."


Resounded Beulah as re-
ported by the Permanent Chair-
man of the convention, "Mr.
Chairman, fellow Democrats: In
the name of the great State of
Florida, which embraces inhabit-
ants of every state in the Union,
it is my honor to second the
nomination of Honorable
Franklin D. Roosevelt (boos and
applause) for President of these
United States, a man whose en-
tire record of public service
shows a sympathy and an under-


standing of the needs of the great masses of people of
this country. A man who remembers the forgotten
man. A man who really cares whether the farmers of
this country get a decent living for their arduous toil,
and the man who really cares for the health and the
happiness of the little children of our country."
"With this great human leader at the head of the
Democratic Party, the party of the people, we will win,
a sweeping victory in November, and these sad, long,
lean years that we are now passing through will seem
but a nightmare in the light of a better day and a bet-
ter administration."
"It has been often said by one of our great
Democratic leaders that the man who came to this
convention with the greatest number of votes pledged
should be the nominee of this convention, and that
man is Franklin D. Roosevelt, the next President of the
United States. (Boos and applause.)" Thus ended the
speech of the third woman in history to address the
Democratic National Convention.
With the world soon to be at war, Beulah contin-
ued her work within the Democratic Party. As she


"The honor of seconding
the nomination of Franklin
D. Roosevelt by the Florida
delegation will fall to Mrs.
Beulah Hooks Hannah, it was
decided at a conference of the
delegation in Jacksonville,"
stated the Lakeland Ledger &
Star Telegram, June 21, 1932.

has, ever since women
were given the right to
vote, been active in behalf
of the party. In the memo-
rable campaign of 1928,
she was drafted by the na-
tional executive committee
as a campaign speaker and
at that time became known
all over Florida for her
forceful speeches in behalf
of the national Democratic
ticket. Those who heard
her at that time say she elo-
quently presented the true
and tried principles of the
Democratic party in a most
effective way."

the delegate seat, but was

waited to attend the party's 1944 National Convention
as Florida's at large delegate, her feminism is captured
in the Tampa Sunday Tribune of July 2, 1944. Sub-
headlined "Women at Peace Table," she is quoted,
"Rulers of the various
nations undoubtedly will
make the agreements on
the terms of armistice, 'She alway
but among those who alway
work out the plans should was oin;g
be women." W S going t
"In fact. I see no money so p
reason why there should money so
not be equal representa- have a place
tion of men and women
at the peace-planning And she did
table, for women have as
great, or greater, a stake
in peace the sons they
bear."
"I don't believe war
ever will be averted until women all over the world take
an intelligent interest and active part in government"
When her national political life ended, Beulah
returned to manage her family's citrus groves in Lake-
land, but still found herself as the only women in the
area fighting for growers' rights.
As a documented activist and senior citizen, who
also found time over the years to write a collection of
short stories and poems submitted to such periodicals
of the day and today as The Atlantic Monthly or Jack
and Jill Beulah chose to retire on Anna Maria Island.
When she was a child, her family would come here
often to fish. So, with many childhood memories to
sustain her, as well as her inbred love of the sport,
Beulah settled in Bradenton Beach.
It was on one of her many deep sea fishing trips
while she was in her late 60's or early 70's Beulah
met, then ultimately married, Harvey Tingley, a re-
tired farmer from Ohio. After he passed away, she
continued to live in Bradenton Beach, but, for some
unknown reason, suddenly moved into Holmes Beach.
From a relative's recollection, "she wanted a change."


Another love of Beulah's lead to her donation of
money for a library reading. "She loved her
books," said her niece Anne Friedt of Bradenton
Beach, "and they did not have a reading room. She

always said she was go-
ing to leave money so
people could have a
place to read." And she
did. Beulah left a trust of
$450,000 for just that
purpose; a legacy com-
piled from selling her
property in Lakeland and
from her successful dab-
bling in the stockmarket
which was, according to
her family, the source of
the majority of her money
(Kodak and Gillette were
her favorites).
In the mid 70's,


Beulah continued her activism in various causes, but now
with a pen instead of her vocal chords. Her memoir ma-
terials are full of letters to the editor of the Manatee Times
(1976) touting her opinion about the problems of New
York City down to pointing out a local, small feminist
injustice, ". . County Court instructs men to wear coats
and ties but doesn't tell women what to wear except for
banning pants suits. Could it be that he thinks to deny
spectators the sight of women's legs flashing from mini
and slit skirts would be cruelty to dumb animals?"
What a gal!
Beulah Hooks Hannah Tingley passed away on
April 7, 1986, at the age of 92. Based on a collection
of reports from family and caregivers, Beulah's end
can be pictured with a libation at her side and a ciga-
rette in the ashtray both reflective of her strong,
"my way," personality. I regret I'll never be able to sit
down and share the same with her. She never doubted
women's ability to be whatever they wanted to -
from astronaut to, from my prospective, editor of a
proud, local, Island newspaper. And thanks to her and
women like her, no one else does either.

Orton Graves
sculptures to be
featured at Library
Island Branch Library will sponsor a display of
sculptures by local artist Orton Graves during the
month of January. The unusual wall hangings are
lightweight and composed of clay and plastic.
Graves grew up in New York where he was a
security guard at the Metropolitan Museum in the late
1960's. By that time he was a self-taught artist and
was teaching art classes, but working in the museum
exposed him to a varied world of art. He also met the
late sculptor Henry Moore who inspired Graves to
develop his own style.
In 1978 the Graves family moved to Manatee
County and one of the first places Orton visited was
the Ringling Museum. His abstract wall hangings
have been exhibited there as well as the African Im-
port Gallery and other Sarasota galleries.
His pieces have also been featured on "Black
Contact" and Black Almanac" TV shows. Graves at-
tempts to bridge the past and present in his work, and
the forms are inspired by natural elements as well as
the primitive arts.
Graves works for a telemarketing firm and keeps
busy in other art-forms in his spare time. He is a mu- -
sical accompanist with the dance department at the
Pinellas County Center for the Arts in St. Petersburg.
He also teaches a Hatha Yoga class in Bradenton and
a percussion class in Sarasota.
Island Branch Library is located at 5701 Marine
Drive, Holmes Beach. Business hours are: Mon.,

Holidays are over at last

The holidays are over and Mom you sit alone
And survey the destruction guests have done to your home
In the divan are the remains of a whole box of crackers
And the bath looks like the locker room of the Green Bay Packers
In the living room the kids must have held a race
For there isn't a thing that's in its usual place
And somehow or other you have a big hunch
There isn't enough meat on that carcass for you to have lunch
But you tackle a job that should be done by seven
And hope the Lord will reward you when you get up to heaven

The City of Bradenton Beach held a
special meeting to memorialize the former
chairman of the Planning Commission,
Louis Barolo, who passed away in early
December. Family and friends gathered at
city hall to exchange memories about his
personal and professional life. Mayor
Katie Pierola presented Mrs. Louis Barolo
with a plaque commemorating her
husband's vast contribution to the City.
In a phone conversation with former City
attorney Dick Carter, Carter credited
Barolo with supervising the construction
of the present police department and city
hall. Carter said that to his knowledge,
Barolo was "never salaried ... he did a lot
of work for the City out of the goodness of
his heart. "Pictured (I to r) grandson

Andrew aid offered

by Islanders


Editor's note: TV film clips of the
destruction caused by Hurricane Andrew
are one thing; to actually see it, is quite
another. The following is written by Island
teenager Alisa Kahn who traveled for a
weekend with her Roser Memorial Youth
Group to help the Interfaith Coalition for
Andrew Recovery Effort clear debris in
Florida City, Fl, near Miami.

By Alisa Kahn
Anna Maria City
We started out about 8:30 a.m. I
sat with Amanda. Roy drove. Billie sat
up front. Casey sat with Darcy and
Leah sat with Joyce. We drove to Sara-
sota. We had a snack. We stayed there
for about 15 minutes.
Then we drove until it was lunch
time. We were almost there. We saw a
lot of horrible things. We saw trees that
had been uprooted, houses that had just
fallen to the ground. It was really scary
seeing these things. People had written
stuff on their houses like, "Look what


the Lord has done," "Looters will be
shot," and "Thanks a lot Andrew." But
some of the houses were not even
touched. We saw a bus that was split in
half. We were shocked.
I know these people were very
upset. They lost their normal way of
life. I don't know what I would have
done if the hurricane had hit here. We
are very lucky people.
Well, when we got to the tent it
looked like M.A.S.H. We had to sleep
in tents. A lot of the victims got trailers.
We got to experience how they
had to take showers outside with freez-
ing cold water and had to go to the
restroom in port-a-potties. A lot of
people don't even have homes yet.
It was a great experience, but it
was very frightening. I will never forget
this trip.
I will tell my children and grand-
children about my great trip with Roser
Church.

Kelly Ring makes memories

for Island student


By Joy Courtney
Editor
Each year Anna Maria Elementary School, in an
effort to help its students become aware of the myriad
of careers open to them, holds a Career Day One
highlight of the day is the student parade. The school's
entire student body parades through each other's
classrooms dressed in costumes based on a career field
they are interested in.
For the last two years, third-grader Jessica*"
Foraker joined the school's parade dress as her idol -
newscaster Kelly Ring of WTVT-13. "As far as Jes-
sica is concerned," said Jessica's mom, Tracy, about
her daughter's admiration of Ring, "that news cast is
the Kelly Ring Show!"
A friend of the Foraker family, Judy Buckalew,
thought she would do something special for Jessica.
She called WTVT-13 in Tampa and asked for an
autographed picture of Ring. As the wonders of churn-



Santa says,
"ho, ho, ho!"
Little Kelsey, age 2, with her brother,
Nicky, age 3, take their turn to receive
special Christmas gifts from Santa Claus
himself. Kelsey looks as pleased as punch,
but Nicky? Well, it must be the skepticism
of age. Santa visited the School for
Constructive Play in Anna Maria City.
Santa's helper is Anna Maria City resident
Ed Callen.


Photo: Joy Courtney


ing wheels go, Ring found out about the request and
invited the family to bring Jessica up to Tampa to
meet her and have a tour of the studio.
Jessica and her family spent about an hour with
Ring. She showed them the control room and offices
of WTVT-13 and even gave Jessica another thrill -
Ring seated Jessica in her chair on the newscast's set!
There sat Jessica as close to being in the shoes of her
idol as anyone could think possible.
"I was a little worried about Jessica meeting
Kelly," said Tracy. "I didn't know how it would work
out what type of a person Kelly would be. As it
turned out, I could have not hand picked a better role
model for Jessica. Kelly is intelligent and was really
sweet to Jessica. She even told Jessica if she gets good
grades, they might be able to spend a day together and
do things like work on stories!"
Tracy reflected, "I cannot thank Kelly or Judy
enough they made a dream come true."
