Lake LaVrista: a dredge of a job


By Joy Courtney
Editor
Whether Anna Maria City likes it or not, Mother
Nature will again claim a chunk out of the city budget The
lateral drift of sand from Bean Point down the shoreline
to the east has again choked off the entrance and throat
(located to the east then under the Humpback Bridge)
from the Bay into Lake LaVista.
According to Anna Maria Public Works Superinten-
dent Frank Tyndall, an increased amount of silting has
happened this time when compared to other two-year
cycles, due to winter's north-by-northwest winds.
"You can walk over the throat now," said Tyndall.
"There is no visible channel."
Originally Lake LaVista was an area of wetlands
naturally fed by water entering and discharging from the
Bay. Years ago, as was common practice, developers
consolidated the area of water by digging canals to create
buildable lots with a view, explained Tyndall. Lake
LaVista with its canals was never designed to be self-
cleaning, he added.
"We have been asked many times why the lake
wasn't designed to self-clean. The reason is it never had
the proper characteristics nor is there a way to give it the
proper characteristics of a self-cleaning body of water.
There never was a high volume of water or velocity from
the tides rushing in and oul to keep it clean. The tides af-
fecting Lake LaVista just rise or fall slowly," said Tyndall.
Why is the project necessary?
"When you get down to a small amount of water pass-
ing in with the tides you eliminate wildlife getting in. Plus,


Lake LaVista is also a storm drainage collection system
for all of the Bean Point area. These are two important
reasons to keep the channel clear," Tyndall said.
Other then the steps required to get the job out to bid,
the Florida Department of Natural Resources (DNR) has
complicated the procedure this year.
"Taking the silt out is not a problem," explained
Tyndall, "it's where you are going to put the sand. The
new DNR ruling states that all sand and water (product)
pumped through the hydraulic dredge must be deposited
on upland (dry land). The only place we have to put the
product is in the Bayfront Park area which the city leases
to the county. We've (Anna Maria City and Manatee
County Parks & Recreation) come to an agreement as to
where we are going to put the product."
The estimated 1,385 cubic yards of product will be
placed on the high spot immediately to the west of the
Humpback Bridge. When the dredging is completed, the
product, when it has returned to its pure sand form, will
be spread throughout the park area.
Tyndall expects the dredging to cost between
$15,000 to $20,000. The project was previously budgeted
for by the city under its special project account. The area
to be dredged to clear the channel and therefore free the
throat, extends 600 feet east of the Humpback Bridge and
16 feet across with a four foot depth below low tide.
Tyndall is also aiming to have the bid process in
motion by April 19.
"What I don't want to happen is that the contractor
awarded the job can't do it until, let's say, August. It re-
ally needs to be done as soon as possible," he said.


Bohnenberger,

Martini and

Reichard win

council seats
With a whopping 1,228 votes cast, 38.6 per-
cent of the city's registered voters decided the
make-up of the Holmes Beach City Council in
Tuesday's election.
The field of 10 candidates contributed to the
large number of voters, election officials told the
Islander Bystander, as well as the issue of a new
bridge to the Island.
Vote tallies included: Richard Bohnenberger,
459; Larry Campbell, 429; Luke Courtney, 269;
Dee Grayson, 55; Betty Hill, 372; Thomas
Huffine, 434; Billie Martini, 461; Mary Ellen
Reichard, 473; David Schueneman, 311; and
T.Dolly Young, 206.

'City' property

reverts back to

rightful owners
A portion of former Mayor Dick Connick's
unique but sometimes dark legacy in Bradenton
Beach came to light last week.
Eileen Suhre requested the current City Council undo
what the council enacted 10 years ago declare a lot to
which she is a partial owner as her lot, not the city's.
It seems that Connick and the Council in the early
1980s declared a vacant lot city property. He turned it
into a park of sorts, and it was listed on city property
rolls as city property.
The lot is next to his former home, and some long-
time residents of the area remember his grandchildren
playing in the public park.
Ms. Suhre's problem was that nothing was ever le-
gally done to make the property city-owned no change
of deed, no exchange of money, nothing except a decla-
ration in a public meeting that the lot was city property.
The issue stretched on for more than a decade,
Ms. Suhre told council members, because she assumed
the city would correct the problem without her having
to petition them for the change.
But when she decided to check on the status a few
years ago, she found a cloud of sorts on the title of the lot.
"This was done by the City, and it should be un-
done by the City," Ms. Sure said.
She brought proof that the three other adjacent
property owners had the lot in their deeds, and had.
been regularly paying taxes on the lot, to make her
case for the land.
Council members instructed City Attorney Alan
Prather to divest the city's interest in the lot.
Mayor Connick has been regarded historically as
one of the more colorful figures in the city's history.
During his long-term regime his blunt management
style and obsession with promoting Bradenton Beach
often put him at odds with other Island officials, as
well as county and state leaders.
However, Connick was re-elected as the city's
mayor for a record 13 years, from December 1973 to
December 1986.

Loose, lost boat found under house's 'lake' Photo: Bonner Presswood
Marine patrol officers were called to investigate a lost boat, washed up under a stilt house on the Gulf in the
1300 block of Gulf Drive. If you wonder how that could happen with the yards of new sand along the beach, a
storm last week brought waves across the mound of new beach and deposited a "lake" along with the boat.
The officers were able to contact the owner of the boat who was making arrangements to have the boat,
which broke loose from its mooring in the storm, removed.


Household hazardous materials

roundup set March 19-20


Manatee County will kick off a free collection pro-
gram for household hazardous materials on Friday, March
19, and Saturday, March 20 at the Lena Road Landfill
from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. A second collection program will
be held April 17 and 18 at the Public Works Administra-
tion Building on 66 Street West off Cortez Road, also
from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. The collection program will then
continue at the landfill on the third Saturday of each month
from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.
The Board of County Commissioners on February 25
approved a contract with Laidlaw Environmental Ser-
vices, Inc., of South Carolina to collect and dispose of the
hazardous material. The wastes are disposed of only at
sites approved by the U. S. Environmental Protection
Agency. Most of it is either rendered harmless through
chemical treatment at disposal sites outside of Florida or
recycled for energy recovery. Manatee County saves
money on the cost of disposal by recycling as much waste
material as possible.
Used oil, car batteries, and latex paint are examples
of materials that can be recycled. Some of the hazardous
materials that will be collected include aerosols, insect
spray, cleaning compounds, fungicides, paint, pool chemi-
cals, floor care products, furniture polish, herbicides, in-
secticides, varnish, stain, ammunition and weed killer.

Drug bust nets

$4,000 worth of LSD

in Bradenton Beach
An undercover Bradenton Beach police officer
made a drug buy based on information from confiden-
tial sources that netted an estimated $4,000 worth of
LSD, a powerful drug that induces hallucinations (ly-
sergic acid diethylamide) on Monday.
According to Chief John Maloney, the officer went
to Lisa Bosner's residence on 17th Street in the city and,
"bought five hits of acid from Bosner."
She was arrested on charges of sale of-LSD, pos-
session of more than 20 grams of marijuana, plus three
marijuana plants which were being cultivated in the
yard, and paraphernalia. Bosner will turn 20 years old
later this month.
Jason Kitzman, 20, also a resident at the house,
was arrested for possession of LSD and marijuana.
Detective Matthew Duffy headed the investiga-
tion that recovered several hundred hits of LSD. Chief
Maloney noted that Bradenton Beach police made an
unrelated arrest late last year for LSD, but consider
Bosner "a major distributor of the drug out here."
Maloney said the investigation into the source of
the drug will continue.


Commercial waste, radioactive materials and bio-
hazardous waste will not be accepted. For commercial
waste, contact a hazardous waste collector; for radio-
active materials, contact the Florida Department of
Environmental Regulation; and for bio-hazardous
waste, contact a bio-hazardous waste company.
Cost of the collection program is estimated at
$65,000 for the two-day pick-up period. Every third Sat-
urday, residents will drop off their hazardous materials at
a specially constructed building at the Lena Road Land-
fill where it will be temporarily stored. Laidlaw will then
collect the material every three months.
In Florida, households are major contributors of
hazardous waste to the environment. Household
chemicals and waste can pollute the state's under-
ground water resources if disposed of improperly.
More than 92 percent of Florida's drinking water is
ground water. Burying used oil in backyards and pour-
ing solvents into storm drains are examples of im-
proper disposal, which are causing a chronic ground
water pollution problem.
The State of Florida originally launched a house-
hold hazardous waste collection program in 1989. The
state, however, has now mandated that local jurisdic-
tions conduct their own collection programs.


Signs of times to come?
Bradenton Beach City Council members are consider-
ing Longboat Key-like signs to designate beach access
and parking requirements in the city. The wooden
signs, similar to the blue and white signs on the Key,
would cost $59 for one sided, $78 for double sided. No
decision has been made by council members about
signage in the city, although there was a consensus that
the Longboat signs were attractive.


Holmes Beach

Council endorses

insurance plan
By Jeannie Friedman
Islander reporter
Pending application by the city and acceptance by
the insurance company, Holmes Beach city workers
will have a new employee health insurance package
for the upcoming year. City council approved the
change at its regular meeting on March 2.
Under the new plan, the city will save at least
$33,000. The savings could be in excess of $85,000, de-
pending on the number of claims made by employees and
barring catastrophic illnesses. While the current amount
budgeted for insurance is $141,000, the maximum the city
will pay under the pending plan is $107,000.
The new package requires employees to pay a
greater deductible based on a higher stop loss (the ac-
tual amount of money out-of-pocket before the insur-
ance company assumes responsibility) but the increase
is offset by a number of fringe benefits and a decrease
in monthly fees for dependent coverage.
Additional benefits include a long-term disability
plan, dental program, prescription cards, and a
wellness program. The present monthly charge for
coverage for dependents is $50. In the future, the cost
will be $35.
Council members hope that the implementation of a
wellness program will result in a decrease in claims for
preventable diseases. Classes, literature, and lectures will
be provided to encourage healthier life styles. Wellness
programs have a high rate of success because they are
designed to help workers reduce or quit smoking, eat
healthier diets, and exercise regularly.
Carol Whitmore, chairperson of the insurance
committee, commented about the new plan, "By in-
creasing employee risk, we discourage unnecessary
visits to the doctor and give the individual a greater
incentive to decrease claims."
She added, "If the wellness program is successful,
we will not only save the city money, we will also have
a healthier work force and that will be to everyone's
benefit."

Stormwater

management

study underway
The Southwest Florida Water Management Dis-
trict (SWFWMD) is in the preliminary stages of study-
ing storm water management in Holmes Beach. The
study is funded by a grant and will be conducted at no
cost to the city.
At the Holmes Beach City Council's work session
on March 4, John Fernandez, superintendent of pub-
lic works, reported that this project is a first for
SWFWMD since the district's engineers have never
before undertaken a water management study of a bar-
rier island.
Fernandez also said that the city's comprehensive
plan mandates that drainage problems be corrected.
The Public Works Department is in the process of turn-
ing over copies of all existing plans, documents, and
maps to SWFWMD.

Islanders bid

'Illinois'

adieu
For the last three months, Anna Maria Island resi-
dents have been accustomed to watching their sunsets
with the 220-foot dredge 'Illinois' on the horizon.
Tuesday, the dredge weighed anchor and headed
to Boca Grande Pass.
The dredge's departure signals the near comple-
tion of Anna Maria Island's 4.7 mile beach
renourishment program.
That project amounted to 150 to 200-feet of beach
being added from 13th Street South in Bradenton
Beach to 77th Street in Holmes Beach.
Final work remaining is the sculpting of the sand
and removal of miscellaneous equipment.

Elementary School Library Committee exceeds goal


By Joy Courtney
Editor
With its original goal set at $8,000, the Anna
Maria Elementary School Library Committee has an-
nounced a landmark collection of $12,000 funds
earmarked to renovate the school's existing library to
bring it into the technological age.
"Our original estimate of $8,000 was changed by the
school's current retrofit grant," said Committee Chairper-
son Janet Aubry, "but it came at an opportune time. Be-
cause of the grant, we were able to consult with an audio/
visual/computer consultant before any money was spent
and learned we had to re-design the computer stations to
make them bigger as well as add additional furniture to
accommodate the audio equipment."
"If all the supplies and miscellaneous we have
planned for, come in at estimate, plus the additional
cost to meet the criteria of the retrofit program, the li-
brary fund could have approximately $3,000 left over.
And, I assure everyone who donated to the project, that
any money left over will be used specifically for and

only for the library," added Aubry.
"Once the project is finished and all the bills are
in, the library committee will meet to decide how any
extra funds will be spent. One idea I had, which I will
present to the committee, is to form an endowment or
a foundation to generate income for the purchase of
books, software or other library needs in the years to
come," she explained.
The steps to renovate the library are already un-
derway. Early last week, construction materials for the
sets and computer stations were delivered to the Tho-
mas Building owned by Richard and Susan Thomas in
Holmes Beach. The donated space will be used to
build the units which should be finished by March 24.
During the same time period, volunteer local artists
will be painting art work on wall space to enhance the
atmosphere of the new library.
By March 22, the volunteers from the Sandbar
Restaurant Committee will have moved everything
mobile out of the library to allow the Manatee County
School Board to tear out and demolish the existing

interior. Once a certificate of occupancy has been is-
sued by the school board, the district will do the re-
maining interior painting and carpet will be installed
on April 1.
By April 2, the school district will deliver painted
book stacks followed by three days of installing the
stacks, sets and computer stations."
On April 5 the Sandbar Restaurant Committee
will begin moving all materials back into the library -
a landmark day for the committee and the students at
Anna Maria Elementary School.
"Everyone is thrilled and amazed by the partici-
pation of the committee members and the marty people
who just came out of nowhere to help like Aaron Van
Ostenbridge, Billie Martini and countless others in-
cluding children. It's been wonderful," said Aubry.
"The students of Anna Maria Elementary will
now have a library that will meet their educational
needs for a long time to come. We can't thank every-
one enough. The committee will keep everyone up-
dated on our progress and our decisions."


Bayfront Park pole-erized
Taking a cue from the Palma Sola Causeway, Anna
Maria City, which leases Bayfront Park to Manatee
County, worked with the county to have poles
installed to deter vehicles. According to Mayor Ray
Simches, the Manatee County Sheriff's Department
brought the matter to city attention when vehicles
were noticed on the grounds of the park and on the
beach. The Sheriff had also reported No Parking
signs were being taken down by large groups using
the park and/or pavilion if its vehicle count was
greater than available parking. Anna Maria City
approached the county with-the problem and the
solution gleamed from the causeway. Within six
months, the poles were put in. "We believe the poles
will correct the police problem and clean up the
area. The city will now be able to take down some of
the No Parking signs, said Simches.

The beach

isn't finished just yet
Happiness is a new beach.
Well, not exactly. It seems people are ready to com-
plain about just about anything. From "the water is too far
away," to comments that we all could have expected,
"there are too many people," it is apparent we can't please
all the people all the time.
But what next is every bit as important as the pump-
ing of the sand. Now we must manage what we have. It
seems certain that Holmes Beach and Bradenton Beach
are going to have to do more than ride to the ends of the
beach streets to patrol the vast new beach. Through the
sheriff's department, the City of Anna Maria does a very
good job of patrolling on the beach, with all terrain ve-
hicles and walking patrols. Bradenton Beach and Holmes
Beach will need to address the funds and the means to
provide similar security on the beach to its residents.
Now the project moves ahead to planting sea oats and
building walkovers. The dunes will save the beach from
erosion in the future, and the walkovers will save the
dunes from man. And when it's all done, instead of rock
piles to crawl over we'll have a beautiful shoreline that
will contribute to the future stability of this little grain of
sand that we call home.
People like Dawn Haskins, who owns a tiny resort at
66th Street called Inn Between, are ready to assist in any
type of effort to preserve the beach, and she is eager to
volunteer her time to plant sea oats. We'll be there with
her when the time comes.
We hope the important phase of beautification of the
beach renourishment project can progress at even half the
speed of the dredging.

Thanks for Library help
Just a note to thank you for your recent articles
concerning the Tingley Memorial Library and your
feature article on Mrs. Tingley.
We are very proud of being able to construct the
Library and are looking forward to our opening in
October or November. With our attempt to operate on
the funds from the bequeath and donations, we need all
the support we can get!

Bradenton Beach Library Board

Leffis retreat
While driving south on Anna Maria Island to Long-
boat Key, I noticed what looked like miniature sand traps
on my left, across from Coquina Beach. A sign said Leffis
Key.
My curiosity prevailed and after easily parking
nearby, my friend and I began to walk. We quickly came
upon a well-marked trail which led to a lovely vista with
a bridge across a water way. Water fowl and lizards were;
all about as we crossed onto a wooden observation deck
which looked out over a bayou. It was beautiful.
The wooden trail bridge led to another and in the
midst of all is a large hill with inviting trails leading to the
top. We ran up the hill to a marvelous view of the bay, gulf
and surrounding area. Being a watercolorist, I vowed to
return to do some paintings of this most exhilarating spot.
For anyone who misses the mountains in these flatlands,
visiting this high place will bring much to renew and re-
fresh one's psyche.
I don't know who is responsible for this project, but
I do want to thank them for the good work done. I truly
enjoyed the time spent there and advise all who love na-
ture to take a few moments for a very nice "natural high."

Three basic problems of the
Manatee Avenue bridge
Being a winter renter on Anna Maria Island for
the past seven years, I wonder if the real problem of the
Manatee Avenue Bridge has been identified. From my
perspective, I see three basic problems (1) volume,
(2) restriction and (3) bridge openings.
(1) Volume funneling residents, renters, busi-
ness people, workers and visitors on to the Island from


Manatee Avenue, Cortez Road and Longboat Key.
(2) Restriction inadequate road and parking areas.
(3) Bridge openings this creates a gridlock con-
dition on Gulf Drive and feeder roads. (Note: Cortez
Bridge openings stops all north and south bound traf-
fic on Gulf Drive.Possible short-term solutions are:
1. Restrict Cortez Bridge openings to once every
three hours. (All boats south of Cortez to use Longboat
Key Bridge and all boats north of Cortez to use Mana-
tee Bridge.)
2. Restrict openings of both Manatee and Cortez
Bridges to one every 30 minutes.
3. Provide the fixed-span bridge from Longboat
Key or the south end of Anna Maria Island back to the
mainland near 53rd Ave. (Note: Longboat Key is the
only barrier island without a link to the mainland.)
4. A new fixed span bridge at Manatee Avenue
will provide a fast route to a gridlock island if the other
problems are not addressed.

Don't miss the news this summer
As a winter resident of Bradenton and condo
owner on the beach, I have been delighted with your
efforts to keep us informed of Island news and events.
I am enclosing a check and order form for a six-
month subscription to begin in May so we will not
miss any of the summer news.
We particularly like your coverage of the beach
renourishment, Leffis Key project, and most of all the
bridge." Thanks for the "good" news as well as the bad.

Germany, please
We are unfortunately in our Holmes Beach resi-
dence only some weeks a year. We live in Germany.
We miss the Island badly and we think it would be a
good idea to take The Islander Bystander to get the
news from Anna Maria.
Please let us know on what terms/price you can
supply The Islander by mail to Germany each week.
We would be very happy to get a weekly edition. If it
will be possible, we will send you our cheque.

20 YEARS AGO
Smoldering ruins are all that is left
of the old two-story, cypress Kathleen
Donovan home that once stood off Gulf
Drive across from the Manatee Beach.
It has been razed by the fire department
to make way for a condominium devel-
opment.
The Islander
"Miss Kathleen", as she was
known for years by children at the small
island school where she taught them
music, was the daughter of Captain
John R. Jones, who filed to homestead
the central part of the Island in 1895.
Irish-born Jones was a lawyer, military
man, ship's captain, horticulturist, poli-
tician and very vocal opponent of Pro-
hibition. A true Island character.
The Islander

40 YEARS AGO
Lions Club Friday and Saturday
will clean up Island. They will don their
caps and board two trucks and start out
to sell 24 dozen brooms and 6 dozen
mops. The brooms will sell at $1.50
each and the mops sell for $1.00. As
plans stand, a truck will start from either
end of the Island and will work towards
one another. There will be door to door
and store to store selling. Products made
by the Blind, Money for Lions projects
including the Island Youth Center.

80 YEARS AGO
Mr. Hugh Whitehead has sold his
big farm and will invest the proceeds in
his store on Spring Avenue and Shad
Street. The store is quite a nobby little
affair and, being located in the center of
the Island, is destined to become very
popular. This makes two stores for
Anna Maria, so visitors will find it un-
necessary to lay in a store of the "good
things of the land" before coming to the
resort.
Tampa Morning Tribune
When what was to become Anna
Maria City was platted in 1912 by the
Anna Maria Beach Company the main
north-south streets were named after fish,
and most of the east-west streets were
given the names of trees of flowers. What
is now Gulf Drive was called Snapper,
North Shore Drive was called Grouper,
and Crescent was Shad. We still have Tar-
pon, a street only three short blocks long,
that used to extend, on paper anyhow, up
to the north tip of the Island. Most of the
botanical street names still survive, thank
goodness. The old plat map showed Gulf
Boulevard hugging the Gulf shoreline
from Oak Street all the way up to Bean
point to meet Bay Boulevard. If it ever re-
ally existed is doubtful. Anyway, all that's
left of the boulevard is a short stretch be-
tween the Magnolia and Palm avenues
west of Ernie Cagnina's IGA store. Some
of the oldest houses in Anna Maria front
on it.

The tugboat "Evergreen," above, is pulling a section of 500' bell landing pipe to
barges anchored offshore.


The pipe that can't be bar4
Several sections of 500' pipe that had been sub-
merged to carry sand directly from the Gulf of Mexico to
the shore is too long and heavy to travel by barge. Last
week the smaller shore pipe, which is 40 to 45' long, was
loaded by crane to barges anchored near the shore. The


submerged pipe (technically called bell landing pipe) re-
quired a more complicated removal process.
First, workers welded seals to both ends of the
pipes to make them water tight.
Next a specially designed fork lift hauled them to


the water where a tugboat roped and pulled the con-
duits to the barges anchored off shore.
The pipes were then tied together and secured to
the barges. The 'rafted' pipes will be part of the flo-
tilla that travels south to Boca Grande.

Filling the crater

in the beach
A convoy of trucks carried sand from the beach in
front of the Coconuts Beach Resort at 73rd Street in
Holmes Beach last week to fill the hole at Shell Cove
condominiums in Bradenton Beach.
The sand was stockpiled on the beach when the
authorization came from the county to fill the hole.
Dredge workers explained that in order to backtrack
and fill the hole directly, they would have to create
drainage to the Gulf from the hole, since what they
pump is 75 percent water and only 25 percent sand, at
a higher cost.
Trucking the sand to the hole created the necessary
... displacement for disbursement of the water in the hole,
rather than adding to it by pumping.

Artists prefer personal

contact, not ivory tower


IL -- "Moon


By Jeannie Friedman
Islander Reporter
Karen Vernon and Ken
Muenzenmayer are artists who love their
profession but who also place great value
on personal contact with the
art buyer. So, instead of opt-
ing to be 'ivory tower' art-
ists who sell only through
galleries, the two frequently ',
pack their paintings into a
van and hit the road to dis- '
play at art shows.
Both artists have .
achieved success and inter-
national recognition and
have paintings in galleries
from California to Alaska. Karen
But, they continue to attend
shows to meet and interact
with people.
"We don't paint for the
buyer, but like the emo-
tional responses we get
from them. We also enjoy
being with the other artists
that we meet," Vernon said.
Vernon and
Muezenmayer, who live
near Houston, Texas, have Ken Muen:
been painting in a small cot-
tage in Bradenton Beach for
several weeks. They will display their
works at Springfest '93 on March 13 and
14 where they will also celebrate their first
wedding anniversary. The two were mar-
ried on the grounds of last year's outdoor
art show in Vero Beach. They also met
and became acquainted at art shows.
On the more practical side, festivals
and shows are sometimes very profitable.
Vernon was commissioned to paint for the
royal family of Saudi Arabia through a
contact that she made at an art show. On
another occasion, she personally sold a


painting to one of the National Football
League's most popular heroes. The artist
sheepishly confessed that she did not rec-
ognize the famous face and had to be in-
formed of his identity. (Vernon declined to
use the player's name be-
cause she has not asked
Shim for permission to do
so.)
The painters
admit that exhibiting on
the road can be exhausting
and demanding.
S "Not only is
There 20 years of education
and experience behind ev-
ery piece of our work,"
'rnon Muenzenmayer said, "but
we put in at least one hun-
dred hours a week when
we're doing shows. Aside
from painting, there is
framing, driving, setting
up, hanging, packing up,
~and lighting. Many of our
pieces are very large and
hard to handle, so we de-
liver our own art when we
can.
nmayer "We love to
know who is buying our
paintings and to see
where the work will hang," he said. "Each
buyer is appreciated because each piece of
work speaks to that particular buyer."
If your work is only sold through gal-
leries, you are isolated from the viewers,
Muenzenmayer added.
"We enjoy painting during the week
and mingling on weekends. There's more
to being professionals than just getting
checks. We're professionals, not hobby-
ists. We urge people to talk with us and to
ask questions about painting, selling, and
marketing."

Garden Club's
scholarship answers
student's prayer
"I was talking with my Vo-Tech counselor who
informed me the school's student program could give
me some funds towards my studies, but, after adding
everything up, I was $500 short. I was worried as I
went back to class. I wasn't there a half hour before the
counselor called me back to the office. There was $500
sitting right in front of me! I was so surprised!" said
Jennie Mazza of Bradenton Beach and the Island Gar-
den Club's 1993 scholarship recipient.
According to the Island Garden Club Scholarship
Chairperson Lee Bull, each year the Island Garden
Club scholarship program seeks out a worthy Island
student whose studies are directly or indirectly related
to gardening.In Jennie's case, she is studying comput-
ers at Manatee Area Vocational & Technical Center
(commonly known as Vo-Tech) with an interest in
landscape graphics.
Economics has forced Jennie to be a part-time
student. In order to earn her certificate, she has chosen
to take each half of the complete program on a part-
time basis so she can work.
At the Club's banquet to celebrate Jennie's ac-
complishment, the tone of her voice added extra appre-
ciation to her words, "Your scholarship is helping me
a lot. I can't thank you enough."
Jennie is also the granddaughter of George and
Betty Mazza, managers of Runaway Bay in Bradenton
Beach. Both proud grandparents were at the banquet
to share in Jennie's moment.

County creates artificial
reef off Coquina Beach
With the beach renourishment project completed,
the final phase of the project tilling the newly placed
sand to prepare for turtle season will soon follow. In
order to compensate for the loss of near-shore rocky
areas, due to the placement of sand on the beach,
Manatee County has created a new, near-shore artifi-
cial reef and has placed more reef material at the ex-
isting reef one mile west of the Manatee County Pub-
lic Beach.
The new, near-shore reef is located 1,000 feet directly
west of Coquina Beach. Four temporary buoys mark the
location where reef material has and is being placed. A
permanent buoy will eventually mark the location of the
reef which covers approximately four acres.
Also, approximately three to four acres of reef
material is being placed at the northern endof the ex-
isting reef site. Temporary buoys will again mark the
drop zone and the reef will be marked with a perma-
nent buoy. In addition, several barge loads of material
from the skyway demolition have been placed at an-
other reef site located seven miles west of Bean Point.
This information was provided by the Florida
Cooperative Extension Service, University of Florida
for Sea Grant College of the State University System
of Florida.

Code compliance
better than fines
Correcting the problem at cost is better than try-
ing to collect on the fines for a long-standing code vio-
lation problem in Bradenton Beach, council member
have tentatively decided.
A settlement appears to have been reached in a
code violation matter against Viola Handley. Handle
has been charged, with upwards of $70,000 in fines.
The settlement would bring his home into compli-
ance with city laws as well as pay the accumulated
attorney fees. As City Attorney Alan Prather described
it, the city would have the problem corrected at virtu-
ally no cost.
There was some dissension among some members
of the council who wanted the money. However,
Rather pointed out that the total value of the house
was significantly less than the cost of the fines, and the
city's lien against the property to collect the fines
would come after another lien on the property. The
chances of the city collecting any money from
Handley should he sell, Prather said, were slim.
Council members agreed to have Prather enter
into negotiations with Handley's attorneys to try to
hammer out a final settlement. He is expected to bring
the results of the settlement back to the council at the
March 18 meeting.

Phone solicitation

no help to AMFD
The Sarasota Manatee Professional Firefighters
Association IAFF Local No. 2546 is conducting an
aggressive phone solicitation campaign throughout
Anna Maria.Island and Manatee County for funds.
In response to inquiries by Island residents con-
cerned and confused over the union's request for do-
nations, Anna Maria Fire District Chief Andy Price
wants residents to know that the Sarasota Manatee
Professional Firefighters Association IAFF Local No.
2546 has nothing to do with the Anna Maria Fire Dis-
trict and that the District does not receive any funds
from this organization.
"The Anna Maria Fire District does not phone
solicit," added Price.


The Island Poet
It is sure hard on the old folks with inflation
going up
when it costs about a dollar just to fill their
coffee cup.
And the cards are stacked against them, they
can't even play the game,
'cause everything is going up and their pensions
stay the same.
For most of these old timers, it's a struggle to
get by,
when it costs so much to live that they can't
afford to die.
I know they would like to make gold like old
King Midas,
but what they are only sure of is death, taxes
and arthritis.

Some matches are made in heaven others are

Dr. Carl Voyles and Joan Abrahamson-Voyles, who
were married on January 31, met through their commit-
tee work for the Guild. "She was by boss," teased Carl.
"I was holding a committee meeting in my home,"
explained Joan, "Helen Webb, my now especially
good friend, commented for the whole world to hear,
'There doesn't see to be a man of the house!'" Carl
breaks in, "At that point my ears perked up!"
As the couple tell it, a few days later Carl asked

"I wasn't ready." mused Joan. With his thoughts
still lingering on her, Carl tried a few months later.
"I was going for broke. I had tickets for the
Riverfront Theatre. I told her I was either going alone
or with her. She accepted!" smiled Carl.
"I couldn't see him going alone," Joan said
matching Carl's smile.
The couple were married in a private ceremony
with just her daughter and his son in attendance. Not

"How can we expect people to want to conserve
what they do not know is there?" Roger Tory
Peterson.
Good question. And when it comes to identifying
in order to protect Florida's endangered wild flowers,
northern Floridian Mary Ann McCracken, sister to
Islander Max McCracken, has devoted her scientific
and artistic talent to answering Peterson's question.
Mary Ruth McCracken has both a BA and an MA
degree from the University of Pennsylvania with majors
in botany and training in botanical illustration. Devoted to
accuracy, McCracken spends hundreds of hours each year
in the field literally gathering her own data for each
of her illustrations. She has been known to spend as much
as 20 to 30 days, nose-to-nose, with a plant to ensure the
accuracy of her illustrations.
Now the volunteer director of the Lyman
Goodnight Center in Niceville, Florida, McCracken
offers her illustrations for sale to raise funds for plant
research and educational materials. According to Max
McCracken it costs about $7,000 to study one plant -
a tall order up against botanical apathy.
The University of South Florida Institute for Sys-
tematic Botany, though using different methods, also
promotes basic research in plant systematics and sup-
ports the Lyman Goodnight Center. A letter by the
Institute states, "The director of the Lyman Goodnight
Center Mary Ruth McCracken, is a gifted scientific
illustrator and artist. A good illustration is nearly al-


ways more informative than a photograph. One in
color is a work of art that commands attention and
conveys the scientific message more effectively. ...
The Lyman Goodnight Center is highly worthy of fi-
nancial support."
With Florida being one of the fastest growing
states in the nation and in danger of rapidly losing its
most valuable natural resources, its plants and animals
species, due to development, both organizations have
the same goal to develop a better understanding of
Florida's environment and to save a part of it for fu-
ture generations through public awareness.
"The main problem," said Max McCracken, "is
how to get the public aware of the vital importance of
plant life and how to be conservative to protect the
plants that only survive in Florida. The results, good
or bad, of plant research can come close to home. Take
the Australian pine for example. It was brought to the
Island as a decoration and wind breaker. But research
has determined that it is not a beneficial plant and it
has been classified a weed. Australian pines consume
a lot of water and kill vegetation under and surround-
ing it, which cuts down on the small animal life popu-
lation. If we had understood that, Australian pines
might not be a problem on the Island now."
According to the Institute of Systematic Botany, sci-
entists still have not catalogued or even described all of
the plant species that occur in the state. The purchase of
the botanical limited edition print by Mary Ruth
McCracken, available at Phoenix Frame, is one small step
to preserve one of the many gifts offered in Florida.

Islander Reporter
Islanders can make a trip to Broadway-this month
without crossing a bridge or traversing a causeway as
the Island Players bring the glitter of the Big Apple to
Anna Maria with their snappy presentation of "Jerry's
Girls."
Under the direction of Garry Allan Breul, the all-
female cast sings, dances, and frolics to Jerry
Herman's songs and lyrics from Mame, Hello Dolly,
La Cage Aux Folles, Milk & Honey, Mack and Mabel
and A Day In Hollywood.
Katherine Turner Barlow, Marisa Brown, Jo
Kendall, Rita Mazer, Laura Morales, and Shawn Marie
Robinson all sparkle in the show and each of the ac-
tresses manages to steal at least one portion of the
evening.
Katherine Barlow holds the audience spell-bound
with her powerful renditions of "It Only Takes A
Moment," and "Shalom." Marisa Brown, in her first
appearance with the Island Players, comes to center
stage as a very expectant single young woman who

laments, 'What Do I Do Now?' from "Gooch's Song."
Joe Kendall is hilarious in her musical imitation
of Jeanette McDonald attacking Nelson Eddy, and Rita
Mazer's turn to shine comes when she sings a melan-
choly version of "If He Walked Into My Life Today."
Laura Morales and Jo Kendall team up as "Bosom
Buddies," and Kendall is especially funny as a clumsy,
bumbling "Mame." Shawn Robinson's version of "I
Am What I Am" is a highlight of the show.
Visually, the show is excellent. Costume Designer
Pat Russell made the majority of the costumes which
are a delight to the eye. Lighting Designer David
Belcher, on loan from the Tampa Players, did a superb
job.
Don't miss "Jerry's Girls" which runs through
March 20 with shows at 8 p.m. every night except
Monday. All performances are at the Island Play-
house, Gulf Drive at Pine Avenue, Anna Maria City.
Tickets are $9 and are available at the theater. For
phone reservations or information, call 778-5755. The
box office is open daily from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. and an
hour before show time.

summer breeze
at nightfall,
easy breezy
yet
with a discipline
charged with love
and loving
repetition,
every phrase
matching
or surpassing magic
of golden days

Linda and Bob
are making music
with sentiments
sweet and sage
creating
a rainbow
of multi-colored
light and shade
holding
the audience
lightly
brightly
as Bob's fingers on the keys
and tenderly,
sprightly,
as Linda's voice and eyes!

Friends meet again

after 40 years

After 40 years, friends meet again
Two families who go way back together finally had an opportunity to catch up.
From left to right are T. Jay and Roberta Barbour with their daughter, Sheron
Barbour Jones, all from Holmes Beach, with friends Bob and Pat Medaris from
Tulsa, Oklahoma, and winter friend Edna Busselle from Memphis, Tennessee.


By Joy Courtney
Editor
After 40 years of exchanging
Christmas cards, T. Jay and Roberta
Barbour of Holmes Beach and their
friends, Bob and Pat Medaris of Tulsa,
Oklahoma, grabbed at an opportunity to
visit with each other again.
The seeds of their friendship were
planted within the realities of World
War II. Pat Medaris was a WAAAF,
Women's Auxiliary Australian Air
Force (WAAAFs were nicknamed
'Blue Orchids'), which was part of the
Royal Australia Air Force at that time.
Because she was a veteran, Pat was able
to work wherever she pleased and, for a
time, it pleased her to help out a friend
in a health food store.
In walked Bob, who had been ro-
tated for 10 days of rest and relaxation
from flying with the 13th Army Air
Force in the South Pacific.
"His U.S. squadron rented apart-
ments above the store where I was
working. Bob walked in one day and
asked if I would like to go for a swim
and I never got rid of him," teased Pat.
Like many other young men of that
time, T. Jay and Bob were forced to
postpone their education until the war
was over. Coming from different cor-
ners of the union, they met while attend-
ing college at the Colorado School of


Mines in Golden, Colorado, home to
Coors Brewery (the gentlemen insisted
this qualifier be included!).
Colleges after World War II were
filled with married students many
with children. Such was the case of the
Barbours who were raising two daugh-
ters Sheron, seven and Ruth Ann
(now living in New York), five, while
their father went to school.
Pat and Bob were married in 1947
in Golden after two years of letter writ-
ing, and nine days of courtship with T.
Jay and Roberta in attendance and with
little Sheron and Ruth Anna serving as
flower girls.
As an aside, the couples started
laughing over the antics of Barbour
girls during the Medaris wedding. To-
wards the end of the wedding celebra-
tion, both girls were "a little wobbly."
The Barbours found out later that their
daughters became tipsy from eating the
fruit out of the punch bowl!
"I think I remember," "laughed
Sheron.
The Medaris' were only in town for
a few days, but the couples managed to do
a lot of catching up. As they talked and
looked through photo albums, it was won-
derful watching friendship in action in its
truest form, it always has a way of making
a long-awaited visit seem like the last one
just happened yesterday.

Dr. David Tomasko, senior scientist at the Sarasota Bay Program, unloads a
dingy laden with red mangroves at Leffis Key for the planting frenzy Saturday.


By Bob Ardren
Outdoor Correspondent
It was a shameful performance by
Anna Maria Island's elected officials.
And frankly, who expects any better
from Longboat Key?
Last Saturday nearly 150 volun-
teers showed up to plant 2,000 young
mangroves at the Leffis Key Habitat
Restoration Site, and exactly two
elected officials bothered to show up --
one Manatee County commissioner and
the mayor of Sarasota.
Volunteers ranged in age from very
young to well past retirement and, judg-
ing from the smiles
on their muddy faces,
they were having a
fine time. There were More than
officials from both in-wa
SWIFTMUD, the Na- land, are e
tional Estuary Pro-
gram, Conservation be odisp
Consultants of Pal- weekend a
metto who contrib- Suncoast b
uted all the plants,
and even your humble
reporter and his boss. Sarasota.
(A reporter and pho-
tographer of The
Other Island Paper
were "way too busy,"
they said, to help in any actual planting,
but at least they showed up.)
Anyway, hats off to all the volun-
teers, including Commissioner Pat
Glass and Mayor Jack Gurney, for all
their help and support. Maybe you
should keep this in mind the next time
local officials campaign on how con-
cerned they are about the environment.
"This race must be stopped," says
Mario Quevedo, editor of a Spanish
newspaper and news director of a radio
station in Tampa. He was referring to
the upcoming St. Petersburg to Havana
sailing race mentioned in this column
last week. Scheduled to get underway
again March 23, the 285-mile race first
began in 1930 and was suspended in
1959 for political reasons. (Here come
the politicians again.)
Cutting to the chase here, these
anti-Castro Cuban-Americans claim to
represent a group called The World
Federation of Cuban Former Political
Prisoners of Tampa, and say they'll pro-


test the race using all legal means. Me,
I'm looking for a berth on one of the
racing boats. Politics and sailing have
never been a good mix, in my opinion.
A wonderful film about fishing and
life, "A River Runs Through It," played
at the Theatro in Sarasota last week -
and I'd waited a long time to catch this
one for their standard one buck admis-
sion price. Produced and directed by
Robert Redford, the movie celebrated
fly fishing as a metaphor and, maybe, a
religion. My point is that at the end of
the feature there was a strong statement


calling for us in



200 boats,
water and on
expected to
lay this
t the 1993
Boat Show
and in


1993 to practice catch
and release fishing.
Not only was it
touching except for
that one I want for
dinner it was right.
More than 200
boats, both in-water
and on land, are ex-
pected to be on dis-
play this weekend at
the 1993 Suncoast
Boat Show on City
Island, Sarasota.
Running Thursday
through Sunday, the
show will feature
both new and used


boats along with fishing clinics con-
ducted by the Sarasota and Manatee
County chapter of the Florida Conser-
vation Association and there are even
a bikini "fashion shows" scheduled for
Saturday and Sunday afternoons."
Show hours are from noon to 7
Thursday and Friday, 10 a.m. to 7 p.m.
on Saturday and 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Sun-
day. Admission is $5 for adults, $2 for
children 6 to 12 and under 6 is free.
Parking is free. To get to City Island,
just hang a left immediately after pass-
ing south over the New Pass bridge.
By the way, the FCA will have a
special "casting area" set up on land
next to the entrance to the in-water dis-
plays. Targets will be set up so
fisherfolks of all ages can get some cast-
ing tips from the experts and have a
chance to practice them.
Remember, save a good one for
supper, then throw the rest back. That
way there'll always be supper. See you
next week.

Cobia spotted by


offshore fishermen


By Mike Heistand
Bradenton Beach Pier reports trout, flounder and
pompano are being caught at night and sheepshead
during the day.
Chris from Galati Yacht Basin says when the wind
is not blowing there are plenty of grouper being caught
offshore, but very few snook are being caught as of yet.
There have also.been plenty of sheepshead being reported
and a few redfish being caught and released.
Captain Mike Bradow said they have caught a
few nice snook with the biggest one weighing in at 11
pounds. Mark also reports catching all the sheepshead
one could want.
John Fernandez, Jr., from Island Discount
Tackle tells us that Ella Eshenbaugh is ahead in the
shop's sheepshead contest for the month of March
with a 22" monster. John also said that sheepshead
have made up the majority of their customer's catches
with a few red grouper offshore.
Captain Tom Chaya with "Dolphin Dreams"
reports a few snook with the better fishing yet to come.
Lots and lots of sheepshead and a few redfish when the
tide is right.
Captain Mike Heistand with "Magic" reports
that they have caught pompano on every trip last week
with a few big redfish and whiting. Captain Mike has
not yet targeted snook.
Jamie from the Miss Cortez Fleet stated their
four-hour trip has been averaging 45 to 60 head of fish
which were mostly gray snapper, porgies, and sand
perch. Their six-hour trip has been getting 100 to 200
head of fish which were gray snapper, vermilion snap-
