NEWS HAPPENINGS DINING SPORTS REAL ESTATE
By Joy Courtney
Out of 540 Florida elementary public schools
that applied, including seven within Manatee County,
Anna Maria Elementary School has been awarded a
grant of $68,000 by the Florida Department of Edu-
cation through its Retrofit for Technology Grant Pro-
gram. The program is part of the state's accountabil-
ity process which includes an emphasis on providing
all Florida students within the public school system
with equal access to technology.
The grant award was announced last week by state
Education Commissioner Betty Castor and is part of the
$16.8-million dollar grant program designated by the
Florida legislature to "retrofit" or "rewire" older elemen-
tary schools to handle today's communication technol-
ogy to put them on par with newer facilities.
The implementation of the grant is under a five-
year program commencing this month, and, as the
rewiring progresses, is married to a commitment by
the Manatee County School Board to provide an ad-
ditional $50,000 for the purchase of the hardware
needed, such as televisions, computers, modems, and
telephones. With the wiring and hardware in place,
the third part of the puzzle, the ability to receive in-
formation, has been taken care of by the school's re-
cent installation of an ITFS tower. When activated,
the tower will allow the school to receive educational
cable channels through satellite transmission
As the stages of the project are completed, a
myriad of communication capabilities will be accessible
by the school. To mention a few, the telephone lines in
all instructional spaces of the school will give teachers
and students access to video presentations provided by
educational cable television channels through a media
center, provide instructional programming and in-service
training for the staff, and permit access to remote re-
sources of learning through modems.
"I cannot tell you how excited we are about the
grant," said Anna Maria Elementary School Principal
Jim Kronus. "It will bring our school into the 21st
century in areas of education and communciation."
According to Kronus, applying for the grant
was a competitive process, and he is proud of the
school's eight member grant writing committee. He
believes the committee's success was based on the
detailed plans submitted, and, within the plan, tried to
include the needs of all the stakeholders, not only the
children, but the parents and the community. "When
it is completed, it will be a community project. It will
be something adults will be able to use and have ac-
cess to also," explained Kronus.
Ten percent of the grant money has been allo-
cated to immediately hire an engineer to design the
retrofit. Completion of the rewiring is scheduled for
this summer. By August, 1993, teachers will begin
training and four classrooms are expected be on line
using computers from the school's computer lab plus
hardware purchased with some of the $50,000 allot-
ted by the school.system. Four more classrooms will
be on line by December, 1993, with the school's new
intercom equipment scheduled for installation during
the summer of 1994. By the fall of 1995, all class-
rooms will have been added to the network. At the
end of 1996, a satellite dish will be added to the
CCTV system for additional receiving and the fall of
1997 will begin a program to replace all outdated
hardware used by the students in 1993.
"This technological process will take time. There
will be no immediate benefit this year, but by next year
we will have four classrooms hooked up and then four -
more and have the entire school on line by '96. Some of
today's students will not benefit, but that is not the point.
Look at this year's and next year's kindergarten students
and all the students that will follow long after I am re-
tired," said Kronus.

Anna Maria booze law called unconstitutional in lawsuit
By Joy Courtney
"Ordinance 475 of the City of Anna Maria,
Florida, is unconstitutional or is unconstitutionally
being applied to the Plaintiff," states the lawsuit filed
by attorney Donald Yetter of Bradenton representing
Candy Cain's Inc. against Anna Maria City over its
According to Ed and Pat Cain, owners and op-
erators of the breakfast and lunch restaurant located at
111 Bay Blvd. S., Anna Maria City, the lawsuit is
their "last call" to obtain an on-premise liquor license
for their establishment under the restrictions of the
alcohol ordinance enacted in January, 1987. The law-
suit comes after all appeals to the City of Anna Maria
have been denied and exhausted.
The Cains contend the City is guilty of selective
enforcement of the ordinance, and, due to this selec-
tive enforcement, has put their business at a competi-
As explained by the Cains, their point of equi-
table enforce is made by the City's refusal to stop the
Sign of the Mermaid Restaurant, owned and operated
by Ed Spring, and located at 9707 Gulf Dr., Anna
Maria City, from dispensing free beer and wine to its
"Though we have been trying to get the City to
give us a (on-premise) liquor license for five and a
half years, I would have never shook the ship, but
Spring has been doing it for eight months now when
the law says no sale or dispensing of alcohol, with the
emphasis on the word 'dispensing'," said Pat Cain.
Mrs. Cain's reference can be found in Section 4,
entitled "Delivery or Service Prohibited in Certain
Areas, paragraph (d) of ordinance, which states: "It
shall be unlawful for any person or for the officers,
employees, servants or agents of any person holding a
vendor's alcoholic beverage license to: Operate an
establishment where alcoholic beverages are sold or
dispensed within the City limits of the City of Anna
Maria, unless such establishment is at least 2,500 feet
from any other establishment where alcoholic bever-
ages are sold or dispensed; or, at least 2,500 feet form
an established church." Ordinance 475 applies to both
restaurants because each was established after 1987
When questioning the City about this issue, Pete
Cain stated he was told that the City would take no
action unless it received a written complaint against
the Sign of the Mermaid. "We won't file a written
complaint on Spring," said Pat Cain. "This isn't Rus-
sia. A neighbor should not have to file a violation
against a neighbor. This is what we have a city coun-
cil and mayor for," she added.
On the subject of restricting Candy Cain's com-
petitiveness, the Cains outlined three problem areas.
They said they could not cover the cost of serving free
beer or wine within their hamburger based menu. "Af-
ter all," said Pat Cain, "the cost of hamburger is the
cost of a hamburger." A customer added, "A place
like Candy Cain's that sells moderately priced food
cannot compete with a restaurant serving higher
priced food having a larger profit margin, or inflate
the cost of its meals and remain competitive with other
restaurants offering the same type of menu."
The Cains' second point is based on restrictions
mandated by their off-premise liquor license, regu-
lated and issued by the State of Florida (the regulation
of off-premise liquor licenses is controlled by the state
and is not within local jurisdiction.) Pete Cain said he
felt his business was at another disadvantage because,
"by law I have to buy my beer from a distributor mak-
ing me pay about $12 a case when Spring can get it on
sale at Walgreen's for what, $9 a case?"
As an aside, the Cains explained a further di-
lemma. Candy Cain's off-premise liquor license per-
mits a patron to buy a beer and consume it only on the
patio outside the restaurant. "Try to explain to a cus-
tomer, especially to someone who does not speak En-
glish well, who wants a beer with their meal on a cold
day, that they have to drink their beer outside with the
weather forcing them to leave their hamburger inside.
We've had some customers suggest we get long
straws and open the windows!" laughed Pat Cain.
The Cains also believe Candy Cain's inability to
serve beer and wine with its meals has limited their
afternoon customer pool and, because they have tried
in the past to add dinner service to expand their opera-
tion, have learned that serving alcohol is an important
amenity to bringing in the evening trade.
Anna Maria City Mayor Ray Simches would
make no comment on the lawsuit except to say it was
in the hands of the city attorney.
Beside demanding Ordinance 475 to be declared
unconstitutional or is unconstitutionally being applied
to Candy Cain's, the summons demands, "The costs
of the action; and
such other and additional relief as to Plaintiff
(Candy Cain's) may be entitled and the costs of this
action." It also demands a response within 20 days of
serving (20 days from Jan. 26) or a default will be
entered against the City for the relief demanded by

Heavy surf briefly halted the beach
renourishment project during the weekend.
But even with the delay, the project of pumping
sand along Anna Maria Island from 13th Street South
in Bradenton Beach to 77th Street in Holmes Beach
should be completed by early March.
Great Lakes Dock and Dredge Co. Foreman Billy
-Coleman told the Islander Bystander Monday the dredge
Illinois should be finished pumping sand within 10 days.
The removal of pipe, smoothing of sand and till-
ing of the beach should take an additional two weeks,
Coleman predicted. Sand tilling to a depth of about
three feet is required by federal officials to make it
easier for sea turtles to dig their nests in the sandy
beach this spring and summer.
Coleman said the two-day delay of pumping was
caused by the six-foot seas churned up by a low pressure
system moving across Florida. Although the 220-foot Il-
linois can more than weather that type of sea, Coleman
said that the threat of the dredge becoming unmoored and
driven onto the new beach caused the stoppage. The Illi-
nois was moved about a mile offshore until early Tues-
day, when dredging was continued.
The high seas have causes some beach erosion as
well. Officials have said the erosion was expected.

Journalist Jeannie Friedman, whose credentials in-
clude a B.A. Cum Laude degree in Mass Communica-
tions from the University of Charleston, Charleston, West
Virginia, has joined the staff of The Islander Bystander.
Friedman returned to college after her four chil-
dren were grown and has since written and received
funding for major grants, has written scripts for educa-
tional videos and worked in public relations through
press releases and public service announcements she
has even found time to anchor a television program for
public TV which required her to write her own scripts.
Sharing past and present
Manatee County Commissioner Pat Glass shares her
family "history" with Island Junior Girl Scout Troop
#448 during the Gulfcoast Girl Scout Council
"Discover Women's History Day" held at the
Manatee Historical Village in Bradenton. The concept
of the Girl Scout event, attended by 150 Scouts from
Bradenton, Venice and Fort Myers, was to help the
young girls understand their future by learning from
the past through oral history interviews and pioneer
activities. Other women sharing their life experiences
.were Dorothy Ridings, publisher of The Bradenton
Herald, and Susan Walker, business manager of the
Sarasota Bay National Estuary Program.
Commissioner Glass, or "Mrs. Pat," as she became
known to the girls, shared her Girl Scouting
experiences saying her favorite activity was hiking
and, as part of her personal past, told how her father
was a Featherweight Boxing Champion and politician

Time, not sand, to increase taxes
By Joy Courtney
The County has no intention to blanket the Is-
land with increased property appraisals and, therefore,
increased property taxes, because of the current beach
renourishment program, according to Bill Cersey, Di-
rector of Appraisal Services, Manatee County Prop-
"The new sand on Anna Maria Island does not
mean we will arbitrarily increase property appraisals.
Our appraisals follow the marketplace," explained
As each grain of sand has been pumped on the
Island during the beach renourishment program,
speculation over increased property taxes has run ram-
pant among residents with many expecting an imme-
diate and unpleasant surprise at property tax time.
There is no need to worry, according to Cersey.
"Property appraisal is an on-going process, we
are continually looking at '91 compared to '92, and so
on, to compare trends of the marketplace. Until we see
a significant and consistent pattern in overall higher
property sales, we are not going to make any immedi-
ate changes. One or two higher sales will not change
the entire Island's property appraisals because there
may be an extenuating reason for the increase, such as
the beach renourishment project has now made an
unbuildable lot buildable. This doesn't mean increased
appraisals will not happen in the future, but any action
on our part will be based on the marketplace, not just
because there is additional sand on the beach." said
He continued, "Gulf front property always goes
up in value because there isn't much left and there is a
high demand it is the pattern and average that is
important to us. There is no way we can measure the
value of the effect of the renourishment program and
simply say assessments Island-wide are going up "X"
percent. There will be no increase this year. Besides,
the reality is, there may be no beach tomorrow."

And they put up a
parking lot ...
At a recent Holmes Beach City Council meeting,
members passed a resolution against beach user fees.
(You know, paid parking at the beach.) During the discus-
sion, one member of the audience said that Katie Pierola,
mayor of Bradenton Beach, is "ruining the island."
That attitude must stem from the perception that
Pierola sees the user fees as a much needed funding
source for maintenance of the public beaches in her city.
But the public beaches are to be maintained by the
county, and Bradenton Beach has not taken an official
stand on user fees well, not yet anyway.
In Bradenton Beach there is no side street parking.
Although there is selective enforcement, and family
members are not thrown off the street in front of their own
houses, it does mean that beach and visitor parking on the
dead end streets near the beach will not be tolerated.
But the planning and zoning board in Bradenton
Beach is meeting to consider an application from the
owner of the former Trader Jack's property to put in a
commercial parking lot.
In Holmes Beach, the parking on side streets will
have to remain essentially the same, since with the beach
renourishment comes a requirement that the cities make
no substantial changes in the available parking. Holmes
Beach can't just eliminate their side street parking to save
neighborhoods and streets from the onslaught of beach
users looking for free space if the county suddenly de-
cides to impose parking fees.
Thankfully, the county has tabled it's plans for
beach user fees at the present.
We once again propose that maintenance fees come
from the bed tax imposed on tourist rentals.
The Manatee Public Beach parking lot and sur-
rounding grounds, the entrance, the signage, the medians
in the drive-thus, the curbings are all in deplorable con-
dition. The entrance and egress at Cortez and Coquina
need major improvements to put a dent in the traffic flow
(or lack thereof) on Gulf Drive.
We have an excellent concessionaire at both Mana-
tee and Coquina who has improved the quality of his fa-
cility, but the surrounding areas are blighted.
We need a lot more than just sand, because it is a
sad gateway we provide for our visitors. And a paid park-
ing lot scheme is an equally sad proposal, be it commer-
cial or governmentally operated.
Many Islanders are fighting a 65-foot mega bridge
to preserve the quality of their community whether it is
the bridge for Manatee Avenue or Cortez Road. Who will
preserve the island from chain-link fenced parking?
If Bradenton Beach allows it, the property owner
will have a monopoly but probably not for long, to the
detriment of us all.
Last minute concerns No stand from
I regret that this letter will arrive at your desk too
late to appear in the paper before the upcoming elec-

To the extent that anyone cares about your views,
the real misfortune here is that you place in jeopardy the
chances (for election) of two people, Tom Turner and
Commissioner George McKay, who have made generous
contributions of their time and energy to the City of Anna
Maria, and, for whom the Commission will be a great
forum to continue their efforts.
Right on the mark
Your editorial January 21, 1993, "Just say no to
beach tax" was right on the mark. When in doubt -
tax. Just don't call it a tax.
In the last two years, the property millage rate
(tax) in Bradenton Beach increased from 1.61 to 2.75
or 60%. We are still stuck with a 3.5% utility tax on
our water, electricity, telephone and TV bills. Our
garbage rates (tax) have almost doubled in two years
... all these additional taxes during a severe recession.
Now our mayor, the only one of three island cit-
ies, wants to charge a user fee (tax) to use our own
beaches.* The County already receives between
$500,000 to $600,000 from the one cent tourist tax for
beach related expenses. Only half the money pledged
for renourishment had to be used. Where is the rest of
the money going? I hope it is not the same place as our
Our city employees did not take raises this year
to hold the budget down. We still have the same num-
ber of employees, the city operates and looks the
same. The inflation rate is 3 percent where is all the
extra money going? Think about it.
The City of Bradenton Beach has not taken a
stand on beach parking fees. The only resolution that
our City has passed has asked Manatee County to ap-
point a study committee. I have, since 1990, brought
these types of issues to the Island Cities meeting table.
We have not actively pursued the fees. It is no secret
that personally I have always sought funds for our
Please remember, Coquina and Cortez Public
Beaches are owned by the County. I cannot help it if
there are some people who misunderstand what I say.

response to a drunk and disorderly com-

plained that the cuffs were causing a bum
on his wrist to hurt, Jason agreed to re-
adjust the cuffs. As he did so, Schafer
kicked the officer and jumped over a
couch in an attempt to flee.
When Jason pursued, he grabbed
Schafer by the only article of clothing he
was wearing, his underwear. The under-
wear ripped and came off.

Though the renourishment project is
still in progress, some newly pumped
sand kept a Bradenton man from landing
in the Gulf of Mexico early Saturday
morning after he flipped his car on Cortez
Road and then repeated the aerial maneu-
ver on Gulf Drive, coming to rest on the
newly widened beach.
Off-duty Bradenton Beach officer
Burrow observed Charles Wayne
Bowden of Bradenton as his car flipped
on its side and then righted itself at 115th
Street and Cortez Road at 2:15 am. Satur-
Burrow notified on-duty officer Th-
ompson who then observed Bowden con-
tinue at a high rate of speed as his vehicle
again became air borne on Gulf Drive N.,
traveling over a pile of large rocks, and
landing on its side in the sand.
Bowden was unconscious and the
motor of his car still running when Th-
ompson arrived at the scene. The officer
was able to reach the ignition to turn off
the motor but Anna Maria Fire District
personnel had to remove Bowden from
the vehicle with jaws of life equipment.
The defendant was treated and re-
leased at Manatee Memorial Hospital. He
was then arrested for careless driving,
having no proof of insurance, driving with
a suspended license, and for having a war-
rant pending for possession of alcohol on
the beach. Officials are awaiting the re-
sults of tests measuring Bowden's blood
Howard attempts to scuttle
Councilman Don Howard did his
homework and came up with two ob-
scure motions to block a vote on the
Holmes Beach tourist rental overlay for
the R-4 district of the city, an area
mostly south of Duffy's.
His motions died for lack of a sec-
ond, however, and with even the Mayor
suggesting more study, the council passed
the ordinance and vowed to move ahead
to other districts in the city.
The ordinance, designed to place
limits and regulations on the amount and
location of resort housing units to prevent
that land use from overwhelming residen-
tial neighborhoods, will actually allow
those properties that have rented for less
than seven-night stays to apply for a legal
status as non-conformities.
Rentals of more than seven days
will be allowed provided the proper
licensure is made by either the owner, a
real estate office or a property manage-
In public comments, Mary Ellen
Reichard questioned the ethics of Coun-
cilman Howard's vote on resort zoning,
apparently in reference to his ownership
of a motel, Plantation Resort, in the A-1,
After the meeting, Howard told the
Islander Bystander that a conflict does not
exist because "I'm not trying to cut any-
thing. I'm trying to make it credible. We
can't cut people out of business."
But last December Howard did con-
tact Bonnie Williams, executive director
of the Florida Ethics Commission, to
query her on his position.
According to Williams, a letter was
requested from Howard detailing the situ-
ation, and Howard has not sent that letter.
In other business, the council passed
a resolution against beach user fees.
John Fernandez, superintendent of
public works, informed council that al-
though 11 bid packages were sent out for
repair work to the Key Royale bridge,
none were returned. Status of the job is
therefore up in the air.

Sewer lift station beautification has been requested
by Manatee County for the Island with mixed reviews
among the Island cities.
Lift stations are pumping stations that drive sewage
to the central sewage treatment plant in Bradenton.
Bradenton Beach City Council members questioned
costs and the need to provide landscaping around the
city's four lift stations. They agreed that most of the sta-
tions looked okay the way they were, but they agreed to
contact the residents around the stations to ask if they
would like to participate in the landscaping project.
Holmes Beach City Council members took differ-
ent tack with their nine lift stations. John Fernandez, su-
perintendent of public works, was instructed to work with
Manatee County officials to come up a low-maintenance
landscape scheme for the beautification efforts.
The real key to this "Adopt-a-lift-station" program
is costs: there will be a $27 an hour charge for mainte-
nance, versus a much lower cost if the cities on the Island
do their own maintenance.
found in city
An emotional moment, shared by Anna Maria
Elementary School representative Brenda Katz and
the Holmes Beach City Council, was the best it gets
for elected officials.
At last week's council meeting, a request for
donations for a new library at the school was distrib-
uted to the council members, and Aaron Van
Ostenbridge took it upon himself to canvas his neigh-
borhood, producing $757 in donations in 115 minutes.
In spite of the fact that Katz was moved to tears,
the Council noted that they have no funds remaining
in the City for donations. However, the school appears
to be off to a good start, and Van Ostenbridge has
since collected more money for the library.
The council moved on to other business, includ-
ing discussion of adoption of Manatee County's nine
lift stations in the city, referring the county's proposal
to attorney Stephen Dye. The proposal appears des-
tined for approval, requiring Holmes Beach to main-
tain a beautification project at the lift stations. Super-
intendent of Public Works John Fernandez reviewed
the proposal and presented it to the council with his
stipulation that the plantings meet low maintenance
standards of xeriscaping.
A sidewalk on the city's easement, between
buildings at the Martinique Condominium, was ap-
proved at no cost to the city. Although it is seaward of
the setback line, anticipates field approval from the
Department of Natural Resources and the Martinique
will bear any expense for the project.

Gallery exhibit "Dance Color"
The Artist's Guild of Anna Maria Island Gallery
will present an open-house viewing of the works of
Bud Coate, Sunday, Feb. 14, from 4 p.m. to 8 p.m.
The exhibit titled "Dance Color" depicts the artist's
vision of the intermingling of music, dance and color.
"Dance and music have been recurring themes por-
trayed in various levels of identity," states the artist, Bud
Coate. The underlying theme stems from an artistic inter-
est in the similarities of color, motion, rhythm, tone, etc.,
of music and dance expressed through the medium of the
visual arts. The close relationships of music, dance and
color are believed to be instinctive, stemming from basic
human nature to synthesize these forces to elicit various
emotions from within.
In "Dance Color," artist Bud Coate has at-
tempted to capture this process on paper and canvas.
The public invited and there is no admittance charge.
Toastmasters celebrated 10th
Islanders Becky Smith of Kerr Graphics and Is-
land realtor Nick Patsios with former Islander Mary

tional taught world wide.
Toastmasters International was formed in 1924
and in the 69 years since, it has helped over 2 million
people develop their speaking skills. Currently, Toast-
masters International has over 6,000 clubs in more
than 50 countries with more than 125,000 members.
The Bradenton Toastmasters club meets every
Wednesday, at 7 p.m. at The Bradenton Herald, 102

on the vast amount of new sand.

For if we greet each other with a smile and a cherry
We'll be spreading our love wherever we go

Ok, everybody. Up and at 'em.
Let's go for a walk. Maybe, just maybe,
we can keep up with twins, Harriet
Ward and Jean Sames of Ana Maria
City. Many Islanders have already no-
ticed the pair, dressed alike, rain or
shine, purposely walking along the
streets and beaches.
They are identical in more ways
than one their entire lives have been
devoted to healthy activities and enjoy
the great outdoors.
Jean lived in Catawba Island in
Ohio with her husband Carl, now de-
ceased. They enjoyed biking and hik-
ing. Harriet and her husband, also now
deceased, lived in Berkeley and many
years of outdoor activities including
backpacking in the Sierras.
Now walking has become the pas-

sion of the twins, who have made Anna
Maria Island their winter home. "It's
warm and beautiful here," said Harriet,
"and we can't say enough about how
much we enjoy walking the beach."
The twins are part of a control
group in a research study of twins by
Kaiser Hospital in Oakland.
The study involves the cardiovas-
cular system and nutrition and their
walking should be of benefit to them as
well as the study.
Will they keep walking? They an-
swer in stereo, "yes" To back that up,
they recently joined the U. S. Senior
Sports Organization and will decide
soon if they are going to compete.
The next time you see the twin
walkers, join them for some healthy
exercise. Smile or wave.
But do it quickly they'll be out
in front of you in a second.

Paraplegic needs Island home
Five years ago, a car accident changed Anna
Maria City resident Diana Parke's life it left her
paralyzed from the neck down. She and her full-time
care person, Dan Kisiel, have been given notice to
move from their duplex: this action includes losing
income from Kisiel's managing of the property.
Since January 20, Kisiel has been looking every-
where on the Island for a place that would meet the
Parke's needs. "We are desperate. I don't know what
in the world we are going to do. Every place I have
looked either is on the second floor, is too expensive,
has too many steps or we can't get a wheelchair
through," said Kisiel. "Plus the income we are losing
is serious. She cannot do anything for herself. I have
to be here, or hire someone to take care of her in my
absence if I have to take a job away from home."
Kisiel stated an on-property management posi-
tion would be ideal.
"I know this is a lot to ask, but if we could find
a lease/purchase management situation it would be an
answer to our prayers. This is very difficult for her
(Parke). We need to find a place where we will never
have to move from again," said Kisiel.

Thomas Karl 'T.K.' Angell Sr.,

HCA/L.W. Blake Hospital.
T.K., as he was known to the Is-
land, came to our area from Adrian,
Michigan, to found T.K Angell Electric
32 years ago. During his Island life, he
contributed to other Islanders through
his 25 years as a volunteer firefighter
with the Anna Maria Fire District and
as a member, over the years, of the Is-
land Privateers, Kiwanis and Rotary
Clubs. Without fanfare, through T.K.
Angell-Electric, he donated the lights
for the tennis courts and baseball field
at the Anna Maria Island Community
Center. T.K. was also an avid blood
donor having donated 10 gallons over
his lifetime. His donation was kept "on
account" at the blood bank to be used,
at no charge, by any Islander who
needed this expensive life-giving fluid.
As generous, was T.K.'s account at Is-
land Foods; if an Island family could
not afford food, he'd let them charge
groceries never alcohol or cigarettes -
but groceries, to feed the entire family.
On the lighter side, he was a "life
member" of Duffy's Tavern and
counted Mayor Pat of Holmes Beach
and owner of Duffy's Tavern among
his best friends. "The best girlfriend he
had on the whole Island was Pat or
'Miss Duffy' as he called her, said his
wife, Susan. One of T.K.'s favorite
pastimes was car racing and he be-
longed to an Island group who shared
his enthusiasm and traveled throughout
the state and east coast following the
circuit. And, not to be forgotten he
would only own vehicles made by Ford

Pine's Trailor Park enjoys
night at the symphony
By Frances Roche
Folks at The Pine's Trailor Park in
Bradenton Beach were recently treated to
a concert experience in the recreation hall.
Composer Lawrence Rackley conducted
via tape his original work, "The Cham-
bered Nautilus-Episodes for Orchestra."
Lawrence Rackley, known in the
park as Larry Smith, did not use a baton or
a symphony orchestra. Instead he used his
vocal cords and a recording device.
The concert was enhanced by the
professor from Kalamazoo University in
Michigan explaining the music and its
composition from inspiration to premier.
Yoshimi Takeda, music director and
conductor of the Kalamazoo Symphony
Orchestra, presented the piece at the
James W. Miller Auditorium in
Kalamazoo in March 1992.
Larry explained to the audience of
75 persons that the relationship between
a chambered nautilus and his composition
was one of structure. Just as the gastropod
evolves from small spaces in its carapace
to larger one, so, too, does the music of his
Elaborating on his explanation, he
explained that the Oliver Wendel Holmes
poem "The Chambered Nautilus" espe-
cially the line, "Build thee more stately
mansions, 0 my soul" was the inspiration,
his piece was not impressionistic.
Toes tapped, or minds wandered,
according to the intensity of the 12 min-
utes of uninterrupted music that followed
the musical, plus the musician's lecture.
According to Larry, "One listener
may build castles in air; another may
sense a sort of geometrical fractual devel-
opment; another may pursue a metaphor
relating to successive stages of live ...
they are all perfectly right."
Episodic, "The Chambered Nauti-
lus" begins with a childish chant of two
notes, "la, la."
Rackley's work is not a symphony.
It is more in the nature of a tone poem. A
lively well-architectured stanza by stanza
The residents of the park were
treated to a program that college students
pay high tuition for. Gratitude was ex-
pressed by a standing ovation for the per-

running during the Walkathon
Anna Maria Elementary School held its annual fast moving fund-raiser The Walkathon. All
students, from kindergarten to fifth grade, found sponsors to "pay" for 15 minutes of hard running
or walking around an established course on the grounds of the school. The students earned
Walkathon T-shirts, caps, and water bottles for their efforts with approximately $3,400 in profit
going towards the purchase of new soccer and physical education equipment and computer
hardware and software. At left are the girls from Mrs. Brockway's and Mrs. Thomas' second grade
classes warming up before they hit The Walkathon course. At lower left, the students grab a glass
of water at the water station to keep them going. One water-getter took a spill in more ways than
one! Down to the finish is pictured lower right the kids ran until they could run no more!

From big time to big red stars
By Bob Ardren
So now that we're getting our new big time beach,
we're going to be big time right?
I mean that big, new fence around the old Trader
Jack's surely signals that something's up. From what I
hear, plans are for a big time commercial parking lot for
folks going to our big time beach.
Maybe we'd better be careful about how big time
we want to become.
Couple of months ago I wrote about how, on aver-
age, we kill two manatees a year in local waters with our
power boats. That number comes from a study done by
the Sarasota Bay Program.
Now, I know two killings a year may not sound like
a whole lot to some people, but the critter is endangered,
after all, and its continuing survival depends on us. We
can either take some precautions or just kiss 'em off and
shove the throttles forward claiming it ain't really our
fault God made manatees so slow and dumb."Slow and
dumb." Funny how that's what some folks call most any-
thing they think is getting in their way.
Anyway, speed limit signs are beginning to sprout
up in Sarasota Bay and surrounding waters and I sup-
pose that's going to help protect the beasts. But a fellow
up in Edgewater claims to have an invention to do even
Kenneth Kroeber claims his Hydro-Shield device -
a plate shaped like a ski mounted below the prop not
only protects manatees, it also helps a boat get up on
Here's how it works. Bolted to the skeg, the shield
acts as a wing in the water and helps raise the back of the
boat greatly reducing "hole shot" times. This means the
boat gets up on plane at lower speeds, resulting in greater
fuel economy, while upswept ends on the wing result in
greater steering stability. These kinds of devices have
been around for years, but they all mounted above the
prop on the cavitation plate, offering no protection from
the prop for anything it happens to hit. Like manatees.
I know, I know. The whiners will say that "only half
the manatees killed are killed by props, the rest are wiped
out by the impact of the boat itself." And that's true too.
But if you'd like to make your fishing boat perform
better, maybe save a little gas, and protect your prop with-
out one of those bulky and expensive basket prop guards,
maybe the $40 a Hydro-Shield costs would be a good
investment. And maybe, just maybe, manatees are a test
If you're interested, Kroeber can be reached at PO
Box 1487, Edgewater, FL 32141 or call (904) 426-0890.
Hey, maybe the commercial fishermen aren't para-
noid after all. Maybe there really is a conspiracy against
them. Let me tell you a little story.
Last Christmas I was gifted with a membership in
the Florida Conservation Association by a friend prob-
ably trying to improve my respectability. Since I, like
many of my friends, have problems with the FCA's con-
troversial (not to say selfish) stand on net fishing, I
frankly didn't get very excited about the whole thing.
So when an envelope with the name "Coastal Con-
servation Associaton, Houston, Texas" showed up in my
mail, I assumed it was some sort of news release or news-
letter. But upon opening the envelope, I discovered a
couple of Florida Conservation Association stickers, a
genuine cloth patch with FCA emblem and a membership
card in the Coastal Conservation Association. And that
membership card had the emblem of the Coastal Conser-
vation Association printed upon it a single bright red
star, identical in design to the ones I saw in Red Square/
Moscow a few years ago. Hmmmmm. (What I was doing
there is a whole other story, but anyway ...
Yeah, the commercial fisherfolkjust might be on to
something. Those two big stickers, including one kinda
looking like a redfish about the size of a bumper sticker,
and another that was just an FCA emblem came along
with a genuine cloth patch in the shape of the emblem
(and not a one with any bright red star). But there it was
on the membership card, both big and bright. And real
red. A single, portly-looking star.
Not just pink. Red.
Hmmm. See you next week.

By Mike Heistand
Carl from Perico Harbor Bait & Tackle reports
grouper are moving out. He said the charter boat cap-

and trout. Carl also mentioned the shrimp are getting
smaller when they are delivered.
Arkee from the Bradenton Beach Pier says lots
of trout and big stringers of sheepshead and a few
flounder are being caught using live shrimp, frozen
shrimp and frozen squid for bait. He also said a few
pompano and a few redfish are also being caught with
whiting being snared at night.
Captain Rick Gross with "Fishy Business II"
reports his passengers have been catching lots and lots
of sheepshead up to four pounds. Also he said his boat
has been catching a few redfish around structures us-
