Chief Maloney fires officer in Bradenton Beach


By Pat Copeland
Islander Bystander
Don Burrow, 26, a probationary officer with the
Bradenton Beach Police Department, was fired Mon-
day by Police Chief Jack Maloney.
According to Maloney, Burrow is accused of so-
liciting funds used to purchase and train a police dog
without the permission of the department. The State
Attorney's Office is investigating the case for possible
grand theft charges.


Feud erupts

between mayor,

developer
By Paul Roat
A yelling match erupted between Mayor Katie
Pierola and real estate agent Mike Norman during last
Thursday's Bradenton Beach City Council meeting.
At issue were development plans for Bridge Street,
site of a $500,000 redevelopment program underway
by the city.
"You should not throw these roadblocks up [for
developers who want to build along Bridge Street] or
they will go elsewhere," Norman forcefully told coun-
cil members.
"You should extent some thanks to people who
have moved here and have invested here," Norman
added, apparently advocating zoning abolition for de-
velopers in the city.
"You always forget about the good things we have
done, Mike," Pierola retorted. "You have forgotten
that little Bradenton Beach was able to get this
$500,000 grant to develop our Bridge Street. I have
worked seven days a week for this city, and if there's
anybody that wants things done, it's me. You are ac-
cusing this council of things that are not true."
"A gerbil makes a wheel spin, and a gerbil works
all day, too," Norman shot back.
The altercation was enough to cause Police Chief
John Maloney and Det. John Cosby to both move to-
ward Norman, apparently in preparation of removing
him from city hall. No force was used, and Norman
remained for the duration of the meeting.
The issue that caused the controversy was a coun-
cil-approved change in zoning for Bridge Street and
the surrounding area. Norman said that the council
approved a change last October that would have al-
lowed less parking and would have allowed stores to
build closer to the street in the area.
However, Norman said, the city's planner, Bill
Brisson, had not brought back any zoning change lan-
guage to the city. "He was told to do this thing, and he
hasn't done it. I say he has ripped off this city,"
Norman accused the city council.
Norman apparently had the development of the
former Beach Lounge site in mind when he made the
comments. However, parking variations and storefront
proximity to Bridge Street are both issues that may be
granted through variances to the city's zoning code.
The variances would probably have been granted if
requested, according to some city hall observers.
Brisson brought forward Thursday a special, flex-
ible zoning district that would include much of the
Bridge Street area.
As he envisioned the new district, commercial and
residential uses could be mixed, parking regulations
altered, setbacks waived, and other zoning uses cur-
rently not permitted would be allowed on a site-by-site
basis, subject to review by a special board composed
of planning and zoning members as well as the Com-
munity Redevelopment Agency.
Any zoning change would also have to be ratified
by the city council under Brisson's proposal.
Council members tentatively endorsed the new
district, and instructed Brisson submit the ordinance
that would enact the new zone by August 6.


"It came to our attention late Friday," said Maloney,
"when Terry Hatfield of the Banana Beach Resort called
and asked if he could hold off on paying his sanitation bill
because of donations to the police department. He had
given a check for $1,000 to Burrow. Burrow cashed the
check, purchased a dog and built a kennel at his house,
even though I told him there would be no police dog."
Paul Burrow, Don's father, is a volunteer parking
officer for the Manatee County Sheriff's Department,
Maloney said. Paul Burrow is under investigation for


soliciting a check for $400 from Hatfield, reportedly
for training by a dog handler.
Maloney said, "The $400 check was cashed by
Deputy Matthew Schneidt of the Manatee County
Sheriff s Department and Burrow said the money was
used to send Schneidt to the police Olympics. That is
also under investigation."
Maloney also said a local veterinarian was giving
Burrow free care for the dog with the understanding
that it was to be a police dog.

Toxic ambush predator lurking for fish


First it was Jaws (dum da dum da dum, to set the
tone.)
Then stingrays.
Then flying attack barracuda.
Now we may have a toxic ambush predator to con-
tend with in the waters of Sarasota Bay and the Gulf
of Mexico.
Sounding like something from a bad science fic-
tion film, single-cell dinoflagellates may be lurking in
the sediment of our local waters.
When a fish swims by, the tiny creatures spring
out of the muck, attach themselves to the fish and
cause large, bleeding ulcers to the finned creatures.
When the fish dies, the little ambushers sink back
into the mire to await another victim.

Here's something for
nothing from the city:
740 boards
Planning any landscaping? Then the City of
Bradenton Beach has a deal for you:
Free lumber. 740 boards worth.
As the re-decking progresses for the Bradenton Beach
City Pier, the old planks will be available for city residents
at no charge, according to Councilman Herb Dolan. The
planks are unsafe for the pier, but would make a fine back
yard deck or wall, he explained.
"We had thought to sell it," he said, "but we
couldn't find anybody willing to pay and thought we
would just give it away.
"It would be perfect for a decorative wall in a busi-
ness for someone who wants that old Florida look,"
Dolan said.
The planks will be available at the city's mainte-
nance building, 400 Highland Avenue.


The scene has been repeated countless times in
Albermarle-Pamlico Sound in North Carolina, where
the dinoflagellates have been found to cause one-quar-
ter of all fish kills in that bay.
And they have been found though sampling in our
waters, according to Dr. Joann Burkholder. She has
been studying the phenomenon in North Carolina, and
was in Sarasota last week to review tests here.
"It looks as if there is a new species of this here,"
she said.
The tiny creatures which under a microscope
look like tiny hamburgers seem to thrive in phos-
phate-enriched waters -just like what we have here in
Sarasota Bay.
The massive fish kills that have plagued
Arbermarle-Pamlico Sound have not occurred here,
according to George Henderson of the Florida Depart-
ment of Environmental Protection. However,
Henderson did recall instances several years ago of
fish ulcerations.

Holmes Beach resort rental data sought


By Pat Copeland
Islander Reporter
Someone wants to know who is renting, where the
rentals are located, the duration of rentals and how
often the locations are rented.
Who's watching? The Holmes Beach Planning
Commission wants to find out all there is to know
about resort rentals in the city and will embark on a
fact finding mission in order to review rental ordi-
nances governing the R1AA and R4 districts. Data will
also be used to make recommendations on implement-
ing rental ordinances in other districts in the city.


A meeting to discuss the resort rental overlay district
and its expansion throughout the city is tentatively sched-
uled for August 10. Input will be taken from Realtors,
hotel/motel owners and residents, but commission mem-
bers are undecided on whether to hold a separate meeting
for each group. Written comments and suggestions are
also being sought by the commission.
The Planning Commission is also charged with
review of the city's comprehensive plan and land de-
velopment code and will be gathering statistics and
data for this task.
Vice chairperson Francis Smith-Williams noted,


"Much of the comprehensive plan will be changed.
New rules and regulations are coming from the state
that will affect our land development code and com-
prehensive plan. Hurricane Andrew has changed a lot
of thinking. We will have to take our code and plan
and make them meet."
Smith-Williams said the state will also change
density requirements. The Island will be affected, be-
cause it is now considered both a "coastal high hazard
zone" and a "high velocity zone."
The commission's next meeting is at 9 a.m. on
Aug. 3.


Biggest home yet in

Anna Maria City
Richard Garcia, M.D., of Winter Haven, has pulled
permits to build the largest square-foot residence in
Anna Maria City. The home, to be located on two
lots at Fern and North Shore Drive, will be approxi-
mately 6,000 square feet, have eight decks and
contain a total living area of approximately 5,384
square feet. According to Anna Maria's public
works department, the construction of the residence
willfollow commercial guidelines. "The whole
building will be made of reinforced concrete," said
Frank Tyndall, superintendent of public works. "It
sure won't blow away." Estimated cost of construc-
tion is $600,000, according to records.

Cosby kudos
Bradenton Beach Police Sgt. John Cosby received an honor from Mayor Katie Pierola recently for his efforts
in emergency management. His plaque reads, in part, that Cosby is honored "for his dedication and leader-
ship towards emergency management for our city and Anna Maria Island." Cosby was instrumental in the
city's receipt offunds from the federal government during the March 13 no-name storm.

Councilwoman Mary Ellen Reichard suggested an
annual increase based on a percentage the city can af-
ford. "As long as you have an entry level rate, then
every employee that is doing his job on Jan. 1 gets that
percent," said Reichard.
Patrolman Chuck Steams said Reichard's proposal
has merit, but only if disparities in salary are rectified
first. "No one doing the same job is making the same
money, so that's where we have the problem. The dis-
parity constantly grows with percentage rates."
Reichard agreed that longevity should also be fac-
tored into the plan.
Further discussion of the plan is slated for the July
22 work session.

Fire district to explore

merger options
In an attempt to get a jump on the state legislature,
the Anna Maria Fire District is looking at merger op-
tions with other county fire districts.
The legislature is slated to discuss abolishing all
special districts in its 1994 session. Efforts to do so for
the past several years have failed or been postponed.
"Last year there was a group of people who
wanted to get rid of all the fire districts," explained
Fire Chief Andy Price. "Each time a district needs a
tax increase, it must go before the legislature, and leg-
islators were tired of seeing the districts take up so
much floor time. They were pushing for the districts
to be placed under local control."
In order to maintain some control over their fate, lo-
cal fire commissions agreed to study the possibility of
merging and developed five options, which they presented
to State Representative Mark Ogles. Ogles agreed to work
with the group in developing a recommendation for con-
sideration by the county legislative delegation.
At last week's fire commission meeting, Price said
the South Manatee and Braden River Fire Districts
scheduled a meeting on July 19 for any interested dis-
tricts to discuss a merger.
Price said the local legislative delegation supports
a merger to create larger and fewer districts in the
county. There are currently 10 districts.

Cities agree on passage of peacetime emergency plan


By Pat Copeland
Islander Bystander
In limbo for more than a year, a peacetime emergency
plan is on its way to passage by the three Island cities .
Island Emergency Operations Center (IEOC) of-
ficials met last week with attorneys for the Cities of
Holmes Beach and Bradenton Beach to resolve ques-
tions concerning the plan's passage.
Don Reed, Manatee County emergency planner,
explained, "The language used in the Island plan is
identical to language in the county plan, and it would
be approved by the state because of that language. It
allows the cites to declare an emergency prior to the
county and set into motion mechanisms within the
county system that might mitigate some problems
prior to their becoming a disaster."
Patricia Petruff, city attorney for Holmes Beach,
said she researched the state statute and did not find
any authority for the Island to adopt its own plan. She
also felt the county should amend its plan to recognize
the Island plan.
Fire Chief Andy Price said according to state stat-
ute, the cities cannot adopt their own plan and this plan
is an annex to the county's plan. Sgt. John Cosby of the
Bradenton Beach Police Department said it was done
this way at the suggestion of the state Department of
Community Affairs. He said the plan must also be
approved by the Manatee County Commission.
Alan Prather, city attorney for Bradenton Beach,
suggested the cities adopt a resolution stating they


agree with the plan as a draft amendment to the county
plan and request that the county adopt it.
"The resolution we have now says we are adopt-
ing an Island plan, and we're not," noted Prather. "We
can't. What we need to do is deliver this to the county
attorney's office saying we agree with the content and
start it through their process."
IEOC officials also reviewed a draft of an appli-
cation form for essential service providers, businesses,
such as grocery and hardware stores that will be per-
mitted to return to the Island prior to residents to pro-
vide essential services in the event of a disaster.
Holmes Beach Mayor Pat Geyer said the group
should compile a list of what businesses they consider
essential service providers. Francis Smith-Williams,
representing the Red Cross, suggested developing cri-
teria and guidelines. Holmes Beach Police Chief Rick
Maddox said applicants should provide the phone
number and address of their evacuation location.
Price told officials that the representatives of fire
district and Bradenton Beach had met with DeSoto
County officials about storing city records in case of
a hurricane. DeSoto County officials offered the use of
a public works yard.
Cosby said when Hurricane Andrew was bearing
down on south Florida, the City of Homestead moved
its records to a building on the opposite side of the
county. The building was destroyed, as were most of
the city's records. Those that were found are being
dried out using a costly chemical process.


"In the event of a three to five category storm, we will
rent a U-Haul truck, fill it with our records and comput-
ers and drive it to DeSoto County," explained Price. "It's
outside of Arcadia, about 70 miles from here."
Cosby said Bradenton Beach officials planned on
renting the largest truck possible so it can double as a
temporary command post. Maddox suggested leaving
a city employee with the truck in case it needs to be
moved further inland.
Officials from Anna Maria and Holmes Beach
expressed interest in joining the plan.
In other business, IEOC officials agreed that each
member agency will budget $2,500 for disaster prepa-
ration. Price requested that each member agency give
the IEOC the ability to spend a certain amount of funds
without individual approval each time, which is ex-
tremely time consuming.

Sediment concerns off

our shores
They're rammin' it down our throats again and,
although the ramming is being done far offshore, it
still can impact the quality of life we enjoy on Anna
Maria Island.
The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers have
granted approval to dump sediment offshore of the
Island. The dump site is 18 to 21 miles off the Is-
land, granted, but our concern is the expansion of
the sediment onto vital reef sites and the degrada-
tion of marine life.
The sediment is mostly fine-grained sand from
the ship channel leading into the port of Tampa.
Florida Department of Environmental Protection of-
ficials have told the Islander Bystander the sediment
is hot in any way toxic and should dissipate into the
sand and mire in time.
But they also related an interesting story of what
sounds like misfeasance on the part of past contrac-
tors hired to haul the dredged material offshore, as
well as a discrepancy of what is real versus what was
supposed to happen.
Dredging of the channel has been going on for
a number of years. Prior to the most recent off-
shore dredge activities from 1981-84, environ-
mental regulators inspected the site to determine
if changes had taken place. To their surprise there
was no sign of any dredge material every being
dumped there, leading the logical to conclude that
the previous contractor merely went far enough
from shore to avoid any scrutiny and then dumped
the sludge.
The second story took place after the mid-
1980s dredging. Divers inspected the site recently
to determine the "spread" of the sediment, which
the experts predicted would have spread into a
smooth, bottom-hugging layer. To their surprise
the sediment had clumped into "clay balls" almost
five feet in diameter, with tunicates and soft
sponges sprouting from the sides.
We are not in favor of the dumping activities
even 20 miles from our shores in light of the threat
of water degradation and marine life disturbance.
But if such sludge dumping does occur and
fighting the federal government's Army Corps of
Engineers is task even beyond Sisyphus then
we definitely want assurances the dumping will at
least meet the requirements of the contract for
sediment placement and distribution.

Hurricane history sought
I am enclosing this article by John Adams that ap-
peared in the July 12 issue of The Bradenton Herald
I have lived on Anna Maria Island for over 40
years and have experienced minor "blows," flooding,
etc. Despite the hysteria brought on by the "media," I
agree with Mr. Adams that nothing has ever really
happened.
I would like to suggest that you send a reporter to
the Anna Maria Historical Society to research hurri-
cane stories for the last 40 years. They have all of the
newspapers dating back to 1950.
Each year, it is the same theme, "is it our year for
a hurricane?" Each newspaper has a map for charting
the storms' progress, etc., etc. I believe that this article
by Adams is the most sensible article every written on
this subject.
Ted Tripp, Anna Maria City
Editor's note: Columnist June Alder has been featur-
ing the hurricane of 1921 in her "The Way We Were"
column for the past few weeks.

Live shellfish ban good idea
Because we live on the beach, we have been able
to observe the daily search for live shellfish, an issue
on which you have recently written and which Anna
Maria City Commissioner Dorothy McChesney has
called to our attention.
Reference is not being made here to the individu-
als who walk along the shore collecting attractive
shells that have washed ashore.
Rather, we are speaking about those persons who
wade knee or waist deep, fully equipped to dig for and
uncover all types of shell life. They appear to be very in-
tent about what they are doing with little interest in any-
thing else. We have seen groups of four or more who
come in and return regularly for the harvest. They carry
away filled plastic bags or buckets. We are left to specu-
late that these folks represent the commercial trade.
There is another group of people who gather sand
dollars and star fish apparently for the novelty or to
have something to do while they acquire a tan. These
people tend to leave the specimens they don't want on
the beach or lined up on a seawall.
We agree with Commissioner McChesney. It is
time for an ordinance or whatever it takes to limit the
collection of live shellfish. The argument that there is
nothing to be concerned about because there is no scar-


city is hardly valid in view of our past history in think-
ing the same way about the native buffalo, wild turkey,
Florida panther or our water and forests.
The argument that an ordinance would be difficult
to enforce is simply an excuse to do nothing. We can
almost hear the same objection to a proposed ordi-
nance to control dogs by prohibiting them from the
beaches and requiring leases. Public scrutiny has been
a very effective deterrent in those cases.
The fact that other communities have been suc-
cessful in their efforts to protect shell animals is an
impressive argument in favor of our urging our repre-
sentatives to support McChesney. This would rise as
another example of leadership and foresight, which
gains respect and admiration for all Islanders.
Lucy Larzelere, Anna Maria City

Kudos to Mary EllenReichard
In response to George O'Connor's questions (July
8, page 2) regarding Mary Ellen Reichard:
If Mr. O'Connor wants to know who Ms. Reichard
is, I can help him. I consider myself most fortunate to
have Mary Ellen as a dear friend. She is one of the
most caring, compassionate women I have ever met.
Fortunately for Holmes Beach and the city coun-
cil, sie is also an accountant who considers herself
responsible to the people of Holmes Beach for the
money that she votes to spend. All she asks for is an
accounting of the finances of the Anna Maria Island
Community Center surely not an unreasonable re-
quest since it takes the lion's share of the Holmes
Beach contribution budget.
As for "who she is" in addition to being an
outstanding person she has lived in Holmes Beach
since 1989. She does have to rent her home, but I know
it is her dream to be able one day to own a home. Not
everyone is lucky enough to have dreams realized in-
stantly. Mary Ellen understands that, and is working
toward fulfilling her dream of being able to afford that
home. This isn't an era that belongs exclusively to the
landed gentry anymore, and nobody should be blamed
for not yet having the means to be a homeowner.
Yes, Mary Ellen does work in Sarasota and she
brings her salary home to spend in Holmes Beach. Is
this an affront to Holmes Beach? She works in Sara-
sota at a residence for senior citizens, giving of her
skills for the benefit of a very worthy institution.

THOSE WERE THE AYS
Part 6, the Hurricane of 1921,
by June Alder_

- 4 .


_. -,.

Only the foundations of their homes remained for many Cortez residents.

THE DESTRUCTION

OF CORTEZ


The people of Cortez were seafar-
ing folk, used to the ways of storms. But
the hurricane of October 1921 caught
them totally by surprise.
On Sunday evening, October 23,
the men of the village gathered as usual
around the barber shop and post office
on the Albion Inn dock to swap stories
and play checkers. The weather was
blustery, the seas were high and heavy.
They knew they were in for a bad storm.
But no one expected a hurricane. It
was too late in the year for that.
Then the telegraph clicked out a
message get your boats out of the
water, get ready for one heck of a blow.
But the warning was too late. Some of
the fishermen went out in the driving
rain and managed to pole their craft to
the lee of a nearby mangrove island, but
there was no time to do much else.
They hurried to their homes -
most of them two-story clapboard
houses on two-foot pilings and, as
the water rose higher and higher, got
their families to the upper floors. While
the wives and children waited for the
menfolk to come with rowboats to get
them to safety, they watched bits and
pieces of the village pass swiftly by
their windows. They saw Brown's gro-
cery store topple over and, swept along
like a matchbox by the rushing waters,
hit the new bridge to Anna Maria broad-
side with a mighty crash.
The brick schoolhouse had fortu-
nately been erected on the highest spot in
the village. It was there most of the refu-
gees spent the night. After the worst of the
storm was over, a cavalcade of rowboats
headed up flooded Cortez Road towards


dry land to about where 75th Street is
today. Rescuers were waiting there to take
them in.
Next day when the Cortezians re-
turned to the village they were stunned
at the chaos. The whole waterfront had
been obliterated. All that was left were
stubs of pilings. Behind the broken pil-
ings were boats and nets and fishing
gear, all in a jumble. Houses teetered
crazily on their blocks. Many were
missing roofs and porches. Others were
leveled to the ground, and splintered
wood was thick in the muddy streets.
For the close-knit little community,
dependent on the sea and one another
for their livelihood, the 1921 hurricane
was a terrible disaster.
But as often happens in times of
great trial, the survival spirit triumphed.
Jack Leffingwell, the bridge builder
who survived the storm, marveled at
how quickly the fishing community
recovered. He wrote:
"The Bradenton lumberyards do-
nated lumber. Carpenters gave their
time. Hardware stores gave their goods.

Islander first woman in Rotary


By Joy Courtney
Editor
Joni Korzen, an 18-year resident of'Holmes
Beach, has accomplished a first within the annals of
local feminism. She is the first woman to ever be
nominated to the Board of Directors of the Braden-
ton Rotary Club.
Korzen is program manager for the Manatee Cham-
ber of Commerce's drug-free workplace program called
B.A.N.D., Businesses Against Narcotics and Drugs. Her
responsibilities include teaching small and medium-size
business owners how to implement a drug-free work-
place program in order to protect their employees, keep
drugs out of the workplace and fulfill the requirements
to qualify for a five percent discount in their workers'
compensation rates.
"The police work on the supply side. B.A.N.D.
is looking to lower the demand for drugs," said
Korzen. "Florida is now up to the national average of
one out of 10 employees using drugs. This is up from
one out of seven. This increase in drug usage in the
workplace is one of the reasons why the state of
Florida has taken such an aggressive stand."
Through her position at the Chamber, Korzen
became familiar with and learned to respect the
youth-oriented work of the Rotary throughout the
community and the world. When she was asked in
August 1991 to become Bradenton Rotary's first
women member, she said she felt honored.
As "point woman" for her gender in a male-
dominated organization, Korzen said she has never
been made to feel unwelcome or just tolerated.
"The gentlemen of the Rotary have been nothing
but supportive," said Korzen. "I've been treated as a
Rotarian. I've been accepted at face value and I be-
lieve, if there have been or are closet skeptics, that


Joni Korzen, Bradenton Rotary's first woman board
member
they've grown to realize that I have and will make a
valid contribution to the organization."
Korzen's first position in the Rotary was as co-
chairperson for the club's PACE Chili Cook-off
fundraiser. This year, as a director of the organization,
she will be its chairperson.
As to her opinion about the future of women in the
Rotarian organization, Korzen had only one thing to say.
"I am not the only woman anymore."

AMC to adopt drug-free


resolution


There's only five things keeping Anna Maria
City away from implementing a drug-free workplace
program the signatures of its mayor and four com-
missioners.
The commission agreed in principle to all points
contained in the city's proposed anti-drug resolution
during a work session last week. If the resolution
passes (and there is little doubt it won't), all current
and future employees of the city will receive a letter
stating use of a controlled substance is prohibited and
any violation to the resolution will constitute grounds
for discipline or discharge.
The resolution also states anyone convicted of, or


pleading guilty or nolo contender to a violation of state
or federal law involving a controlled substance will, at
their own expense, participate in and satisfactorily com-
plete a drug abuse assistance or rehabilitation program. If
not, discipline or discharge will be in their future.
To continue the anti-drug ball rolling, the resolu-
tion states that whenever two or more bids for the pro-
curement of commodities or contractual services are
equal in price, quality and service, the city will accept
the bid from the business which has implemented a
drug-free workplace program.
The commission will vote on resolution at its
meeting July 27.


Swimming into his 90s Islander Photo: Joy Courtney
Milton "Swanee" Schwanberg left) of Holmes Beach enjoyed a special day with friends doing one of his
most favorite things swimming. Swanee said he enjoys a swim every day, which isn't news to his friends.
To make sure Swanee attended his own 90th birthday party, Swanee's wife Betty (right) and the couple's
friends held his party at Bayfront Park in Anna Maria City. Of course, the group spent most of the time in
the water. The Schwanbergs have vacationed on Anna Maria Island from Wisconsin since 1950 and have
been permanent residentsfor 10 years. The couple recently celebrated their 68th wedding anniversary.

Dynamite duo set Islanders dancing
By Kay Pruden
Islander Correspondent
What a pleasure it is to walk into the Anchorage
Restaurant (formerly Fast Eddie's) and see so many
people dancing! The Ellsworth H. Helm Duo, formerly
known as Royal Shaft, was playing to a full house.
The second half of the duo is Dick Hall whose
long, graying hair and lithe, lean form give him a leo-
nine air.
Helm is the spokesman for the duo, and on what
is usually called a break, this man works the crowd
with a vengeance. He makes a point of stopping at
every table to see if there are any requests and ex-
changes a few personal words.
With gold rings flashing on almost every finger,
Helm says, "Our aim is to play music for all people to
enjoy. We want everyone up and dancing." The duo's
music range includes "Lady in Red," "La Bamba," "I
Can't Help Falling in Love with You," and songs for
every type of dance style.
Both men live nearby in Oneco and have been
playing in the area for more than 20 years. They are at
the Anchorage on Friday and Saturday nights until
July 31.
Ellsworth's personality glows more than the rings
as he says, "We play from 7:30 to whenever. If the
crowd gets any bigger we'll make accommodations for
dancing upstairs, too." That could very well happen
when you see how much people enjoy their music.
I noticed some people danced to the slower num-
bers, then chose to sit out the faster songs. None-the-
less, they had all the motions and foot-work down pat
as they danced in their seats. The tapping toes were
certainly a tribute to this dynamite dance music duo.

The Ellsworth H. Helm Duo features Ellsworth H.
Helm, left, and Dickie Hall.

Camera Club


views Island
The Suncoast Camera Club took a major field trip to Anna
Maria Island and the results are stunning. It's just a shame you
can't see their winning images in color, but this is a black and
white newspaper. And the club knew that, and shot with that
in mind of course. The Islander Bystander is pleased to spon-
sor the club's most recent contest and to publish the results.
Over 40 members of the 125-member club scoured the Island
on a recent Saturday, each in search of a perfect photo. The club
is in its 13th year and spokesperson Dr. LeMoyne Johnson is proud
of their accomplishments and the programs they offer.
They meet monthly to review photographs in the hopes of
learning more about their art and for the enjoyment of view-
ing other member's images. Johnson said that a major field trip
can involve a day such as the one spent on Anna Maria Island,
or a trip to a shuttle launch, a day at Cypress Gardens, or a flash
photo session with local models.
Watch for news about a future contest, open to all Island
amateur photographers, sponsored jointly by Suncoast Cam-
era Club and The Islander Bystander. For information on how
you can participate in the club, contact Dr. Johnson at 792-

Island consignment shop offers

great deals and HOPE
By Joy Courtney '"I
Editor A"
Would you believe me if I told you you could
not only buy a Liz Claiborne outfit at a bargain, i *
unheard of price of $18.90, but could find it right .
here on Anna Maria Island? You'd better, because
it's true. Heck, it's not only true, it's fun.
The Magic Closet in Holmes Beach is the
dream of Islander Lee Downey. Her shop is the .
Island's newest retail store and the only clothing
consignment shop.
"I've always liked nice clothes, but I couldn't
afford to pay the prices," said Downey. "I've
shopped second-hand stores for so long I became
addicted to it. I always wanted to have a shop like
this."
Downey also wants to help HOPE Family Ser-
vices, an organization that assists battered women.
"I wanted to make a living, but at the same time
feel good about what I was doing," she said. To do ,
this, Downey will accept items other than clothing
on consignment. When they're sold, 60 percent of
the purchase price goes to HOPE. Customers can
identify HOPE items by a large "H" on the price
tag.
Downey said all items to be considered for con-
signment must be cleaned, pressed and without
stains. She accepts consignments Tuesday and
Thursday nights from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m. with a 15-
garment limit per month, per consignee.
For buyers, The Magic Closet is open six days
a week: Mondays, Wednesday, Fridays and Satur-
days from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.and Tuesdays and
Thursday from noon to 9 p.m. The shop is located
in the S&S Plaza in Holmes Beach, right next to the i
Holmes Beach Post Office. :

New regulations for
bluefish, purse seine
fishing
As of July 1, 1993, there are new bluefish regula-
tions, according to the Florida Cooperative Extension
Service, Sea Grant Extension Program.
There is now a 10 fish recreational bag limit, the
minimum size limit was increased from 10-inches to'
12-inches fork length, and commercial regulations
include gear restrictions as well as a maximum daily
catch for commercial vessels.
Also, a new rule was adopted by the Governor and
Cabinet which will dramatically affect purse seine fishing
for baitfish in the Tampa Bay area. Purse seining will only
be allowed beyond three miles offshore. The rule also
establishes a maximum net length and depth.

"There ain't no cure for the summertime blues!"
Or so the song says.
But that pod of tarpon rolling in Zwick's Chan-
nel last Sunday morning certainly woke up some fish-
ers on their early morning outing. No reports of hook-
ups, but tarpon are certainly scattering throughout
Sarasota Bay now.
Interestingly, within just a few yards of that same
spot, up on the flats, is where Bill Hartman reports see-
ing a pod dolphins last week, obviously making more
dolphins. "They were just oblivious to us as we quietly
came up on them and watched for awhile," he says.
"A couple of hours later we came be again and
they were still at it. What a way to spend the after-
noon," was how an obviously envious Bill puts it.
Another way to protect yourself from the summer-
time reds, and the peeling blues that follow, is to wear a
good sunscreen any time you're outdoors. In fact, the
National Institutes of Health now recommends you use
a sunscreen with a sun protection factor (SPF) of 15 or
greater anytime you step into the sun.
Which brings up a good story.
Remember just a few years ago when various
clothing makers were marketing bathing suits you
could tan through? Or at least they said you would?
The newest fad is clothing you won't tan through!
For example, someone discovered that a typical cot-
ton shirt has a SPF rating ranging somewhere between
5.0 and 7.4. Not surprisingly, that drops even lower
when the shirt gets wet. So a typical wet t-shirt
doesn't cover up much at all but then you probably
knew that.
So now we have the Food and Drug Administra-
tion (FDA) busy giving SPF ratings to clothing in
case you want to pay some big bucks for the trendi-
est new things in summerwear.
For example, Solumbra brand has a long-sleeved
nylon shirt with a SPF 30 rating for just $49. But hey,
you have a choice of colors. Black or white.
Personally, I think that I'll take my chances with
one of those SPF 5 rated Islander Bystander t-shirts.
In the interests of research, is there a reader willing
to wear a wet one? We could compare tans. Watch for
the results in this space.
I saw a copy of the new Boater's Guide to
Tampa Bay recently and it's pretty nice and you
probably should get a copy especially since you're
paying for it. A joint project of the Tampa Bay Na-
tional Estuary Program and Florida Department of
Natural Resources, the color chart measures 34" by
22" and really is meant to hang on a wall.
Showing the main shipping channels, artificial
reefs, seagrasses and popular fish, along with lots of
other things, unfortunately no depths are shown. So
the guide is no substitute for a decent chart.
But for something pretty to hang on the wall, send


a small manila envelope stamped with 75 cents to the
Sea Grant Extension Program at 1303 17th Street
West, Palmetto, FL 34221. Other sources are the tax
collector's office and Marine Patrol units.
Now here's some "beating the summertime
blues" good news.
Recreational boating nationwide reached a new
and welcome benchmark in 1992 when boating fatali-
ties hit a record low of 816. That's the lowest number
of accidental boating deaths since annual reports were
first published in 1961.
Compare that to the 1,754 deaths reported in 1973
and you realize the progress that's been made es-
pecially when you factor in the increase in the number
of boats, now standing at 11.1 million.
Of the 816 boating fatalities last year, nearly half
occurred on vessels less than 16 feet in length. The
most frequent cause of death is drowning from falling
overboard, so again, put life jackets on any and all your
passengers in a small boat.
You probably knew that too, but a little reminder
doesn't hurt.
More good news includes the fact that Tampa Bay
is getting healthier. That same National Estuary Pro-
gram mentioned earlier has also published a report on
Tampa Bay called "Tampa Bay, Status & Trends."
Some 46 pages of fairly heavy reading, the report
says that Bay water quality has improved over the last
10 years basically because of better wastewater treat-
ment and control of discharges in the upper Bay.
Seagrasses are struggling, however. While some
seem to be spreading in areas previously denuded, boat
propellers continue to chop away at them. The good
news is that they're trying to spread.
And as you might guess, there's bad news too. Too
much fresh water is being diverted from the Bay, toxic
metals and pesticides rank among the highest mea-
sured in a Gulf of Mexico estuary, and algae growth
is still pretty much out of control due to 'way too much
nitrogen and phosphorous finding its way iato the Bay.
If you'd like your own copy of the report, write the
National Estuary Program, 111 South Avenue South, St.
Petersburg, FL. 33701. Or call them at (813) 893-2765.
Depending upon how you feel about sharks may
determine whether this is good news or not but the
Mote Shark Census is over and here are some results:
Some 180 fishers caught a total of 908 sharks (an all-
time record) with an average size of 4.5 feet. (Hmmm)
The hottest shark fishing spot in the entire area from
Lee to Pinellas counties is southern Tampa Bay (more
hmmm) with the largest sharks caught being a tie at
10.5 feet. Both were nurse sharks, and one was caught
in Pinellas and the other in Lee County.
So remember to keep shuffling those feets, keep an
eye out for "the man in the gray suit," (a friend's name for
those critters mentioned in the last paragraph) and for gosh
sakes, don't let that t-shirt get wet or you'll burn.
See you next week.

Bay bounty
Helen Cotter of Holmes Beach shows
off the 27-inch redfish she caught in
Bimini Bay early this month. Her catch
was just at the legal limit redfish
keepers can't be under 18 inches or
over 27 inches. Redfish season contin-
ues through February.


Fishing's as hot as the weather


By Captain Mike Heistand
Everyone I spoke to this week said fishing
couldn't be better around Anna Maria Island it's
good to know the fish like it hot!
Shirley from the Bradenton Beach Pier was the
first to tell me how good things were out there. She
said the pier's customers were catching flounder, snap-
per and some trout in the evening.
Chris from Galati Yacht Basin said large permit
were found on the artificial reefs along with mangrove
snapper and that redfish and trout were both caught
around the docks. He wanted to remind anglers that
tarpon are still hanging around the beaches and that
there are plenty of shark, both black tip and black nose,
being caught at night near marker 70.
Captain Todd Romaine said his boat was still
landing permit up to 20 pounds and he found a lot of
redfish in the backwater some weighing up to 10 to
12 pounds. He also said there were still snook out there
to be caught and released.
Fran from Anna Maria City Pier reported pier
customers were catching a lot of mackerel, legal-size
redfish, catch-and-release snook and also catching
shark in the late afternoon and evening.
Captain Tom Chaya also gave me a good permit
report and said there were loads of redfish out there for
his client's last week.
John from Annie's Bait & Tackle said Captain
Zack reported numerous tarpon off the beaches along
with plenty of mangrove snapper and Spanish mack-
erel. Their favorite bait seemed to be white bait and
pinfish. He also said grunts and pinfish for bait were
bringing in trout up to 26 inches.
Dewey from the Rod & Reel Pier reported cus-


tomers catching quite a few mackerel and someone
lost a cobia. He also said they were catching and re-
leasing snook at night.
Captain Rick Gross said his clients caught per-
mit, redfish, trout and a few snook last week. In
Rick's opinion, redfish seem to be at their best ever
Bill from Island Discount Tackle said fishing
has been better than average this past week. His off-
shore customers reported amberjack up to 70 pounds,
barracuda up to 50 pounds, red and black grouper up
to 20 pounds, and mangrove and yellowtail snapper
up to 10 pounds in the bays. His people also reported
good amounts of redfish and trout along with a few
snook for those who wanted to try for them.
Captain Mark Bradow reported some tarpon
hanging around and that his clients caught a few up
to 100 pounds. Mark also said they brought in permit
up to 15 pounds.
Yvonne from the Miss Cortez Fleet told me the
fleet's four-hour trip averaged 75 head of Key West
grunts, vermilion and lane snapper and porgies. Its six-
hour trip averaged 180 head of vermilion, lane and yel-
lowtail snapper as well as porgies and Key West grunts.
Its nine-hour trip averaged 40 head of red and black
grouper, mangrove and vermilion snapper and porgies.
Captain Phil Shields reported that amberjack,
snapper, barracuda and red grouper were all caught
on his boat last week.
On my boat charter "Magic," my clients had a
real good week. We fished offshore about 50 miles
west of Anna Maria Island and caught amberjack up
to 50 pounds in the backwater. Redfish still seemed
to be the fish of choice with limit catches on every
trip. Great week and great catches!



A whopper for a first fish
Frank Frda. left, and son-in-law Mike Blake
of Westminster, Maryland, had a couple of
firsts with Capt. Mike Banyas not too long
ago both caught their first-ever fish, and
what fish they were. Frank landed a 150-
pound tarpon, while Mike was able to get a
"mere" 130-pounder. The tarpon were
caught about 400 yards from the Manatee
Public Beach.

Teen Court: giving kids a chance


By Katharine Wight
Islander School Correspondent
Kids in trouble look to their peers for help, often
before consulting an adult.
When a high school student commits a minor of-
fense, they sometimes have the opportunity to partici-
pate in a program called Teen Court.
The idea is that the offender has an opportunity to
be tried by a jury of peers. The only adult involved in
the trial is the judge usually a real judge or an at-
torney who is there to give instructions, swear in the
jury and offender and generally see that the proceed-
S ings are run in an appropriate manner as close to real
life as possible.
The trials are held downtown at the Manatee
County Courthouse in real courtrooms. The jurors,
clerk, bailiff, prosecuting and defense attorneys are all
high school students. Examples of some of the types
of offenses heard at teen court are shoplifting, fighting,
trespassing, and drug possession.
The clerk announces cases, the bailiff brings in the
jury, the attorneys are assigned either the prosecution
or defense of the offenders. In teen court, the jury
doesn't decide whether or not you are guilty because
guilt has been determined prior to the trial. This hear-
ing is the penalty phase of the process where the jury
decides what sentence the defendant should receive.
Mandatory parts of the sentence include performing
jury duty at Teen Court and community service. Some
additional options are an apology letter to the crime's
victim, an essay pertaining to the specific offense, and
no further association with the co-defendant(s).
Teen Court has a spin-off program, Teen Court
Too. I served as an attorney twice. The first time, as
prosecuting attorney, I "won" my case. Won in the
sense that the jury gave the defendant a sentence closer
to what I and my co-counsel were asking for than what
the defense attorneys were asking for.
My success was a combination of beginner's luck

and the mock trials my dad, an attorney, put my friends
Brittany, Katie, Julie and I through before our first
night at Teen Court Too.
My second case as defense attorney wasn't quite
as successful. You see, most of the juries are made up
of kids who have been previously convicted and sen-
tenced to perform jury duty. Most people would think
these former defendants would be lenient with fellow
offenders, but the opposite is true. These jurors have
a new set of moral standards, thanks to their experi-
ence, not to mention that they sometimes like to see
everyone suffer as much as they did!
Teen Court is a very worthwhile program because
it helps kids get back on track. Once you see that what
you did is wrong not just through an adults' eyes, but
in other kids' eyes, too. And, you are punished. It gives
you a taste of what the real criminal justice system is

SALE OF THE WEEK


By Doug Dowling
Islander Contributor
112 La Costa Condo at 1800 Gulf Drive in
, Bradenton Beach was marketed by Ken Rickett of
Michael Saunders & Co., and sold June 25 for
$110,000.
Now for the real story. A group of eight, renting
a four-bedroom, two and a half bath gulf front home
in the City of Anna Maria, decided their vacation
rental, after one night of residency, was not suitable.
They rented two La Costa condos the next day for the
remainder of their two-week stay on the Island. Com-
pare the home at $1,300 versus the two condos at (four
bedrooms and 4 baths) at $2,800, and something tells
me Bradenton Beach is coming into its own element
of beach front excellence.

The Green Turtle gift shop in Bradenton Beach is expanding to the former Circle K building at 3rd Street and
Gulf Drive. Featuring this colorful mural on the north side of the store, the souvenir shop should be opening
