Island cities

seek increased

representation
By Pat Copeland
Islander Reporter
What began as a discussion of Island representation
on the Environmental Action Commission (EAC) at last
week's meeting of Barrier Island Elected Officials ended
in a hurrah for home rule.
Officials agreed to draft resolutions seeking representa-
tion for each city on all boards that make decisions that im-
pact them. Resolutions will be requested from individual cit-
ies and the Manasota League of Cities and will be taken to the
local legislative delegation. The matter will also be brought
to the attention of the Florida League of Cities.
Holmes Beach Councilman Rich Bohnenberger
asked County Commissioner Stan Stephens the outcome
of his city's request to be seated on the EAC, which is
composed of the county commissioners.
Stephens said an EAC decision to add representatives
from the City of Bradenton and Holmes Beach, based on
population, was nixed by county attorneys who said "they
could not do that. It is illegal without a change in state law,
because you would have dual representation. You cur-
rently elect three people (county commissioners) to serve
as your representatives."
County Commissioner Pat Glass suggested leaving the
present structure of the board in place and creating a study
committee on areas of mutual concern. She said the islands
should have "strong representation" on the committee.
Bohnenberger replied that it appears the existing EAC
is in violation of state law because there are no agreements
with other governmental agencies to provide services, as
provided by the law. -
Stephens said some on the board want the cities to be
able to "opt in" with interlocal agreements.
Holmes Beach Councilman Don Howard replied,
"Our desire, as chartered cities, is to be involved at the
beginning of the process, not at the end and not as joint
representation, but each city representing itself."
Anna Maria Commissioner George McKay added,
"We want to be involved, no matter if it's the EAC or
MPO or whatever, and a municipality of this size will
never be able to have its full weight based on population."
Anna Maria Mayor Ray Simches stressed, "'The issue
is home rule and governments. I believe that people who
are impacted by a decision should be involved in making
that decision. I also believe that chartered, incorporated
cities should have representation on any board that makes
decisions that affect those cities. I reject the concept of
representation by population; the only people who can
represent a city are the officials of that city."
Holmes Beach Councilwoman Carol Whitmore dis-
agreed. "I do believe we need to be involved in the big-
ger decisions, but what do we elect our county commis-
sioners for if we want to be represented in everything?"
Bohnenberger responded, "The issue of home rule can't
be stressed strongly enough, because every time you concede,
you weaken your own authority and responsibility."
Longboat Key Commissioner Ray Metz added,
"Generally, the lower populace has fewer votes, and they
get less attention."

AMC meeting delayed
Last Tuesday's regularly scheduled Anna Maria City
Commission meeting was delayed to next Tuesday.
The change will allow commissioners to attend the
Bradenton public hearing on the Anna Maria Bridge.
Commissioner George McKay had previously pro-
posed the delay. But when City Clerk Peg Nelson polled
the commissioners, she found only McKay favored post-
poning the meeting.
But during last Friday's special city commission meet-
ing, Mayor Ray Simches said that, as a result of a number of
calls from residents, he would favor delaying the meeting a
week to allow commissioners to attend the bridge hearing.
Commissioners unanimously agreed to postpone the
meeting.

No challengers =

no campaigns in

Bradenton Beach
Call it a vote of confidence in their ability although
cynics might think of it as voter apathy in the lack of
challengers to the three incumbents up for re-election in
Bradenton Beach.
No challengers filed to run against Mayor Katie
Pierola, Vice-Mayor Jack Charlton or Councilman Bill
Campbell by the Friday deadline.
The three will all receive additional two-year terms
on the city council.
The mayor receives $6,000 a year; council members
receive $3,000.

Bridge input requested
The Florida Department of Transportation will con-
duct a public hearing Wednesday on their proposed re-
placement bridge at Manatee Avenue on the Island
Due to public concerns over the proposed 65-foot fixed
span bridge, the threat of a lawsuit over proper notification to
residents at Westbay Cove and possibly the pressure of re-
peated permit denials from state environmental officials, DOT
scheduled the additional hearing last May.
The official hearing on the Island opens at 7 p.m.,
Wednesday, Oct. 26, at St. Bernard Catholic Church.
DOT officials will be available one hour prior to the hear-
ing at 6:00 p.m. to answer questions. Comment cards and
speaker request forms will be available at that time.
Speakers will be accepted on a first-come, first-serve ba-
sis. All comments, spoken and written will become part
of the official record. Concerned citizens may also pre-
view the video and a scale model of the bridge at that time.


Commissioner

suggests

secession
With tongue in cheek, Longboat Key Commis-
sioner Ray Metz suggested at last week's meeting of
Island elected officials that the Islands consider se-
ceding from the county.
"We, the islands, including the Manatee portion of
Longboat only, amount to 1/12th of the total property
valuation in the county," Metz revealed. "This total
comes to $8 billion. Maybe we ought to consider an
Island county."
Bradenton Beach Mayor Katie Pierola re-
sponded, "You're reading my mind, Ray."


Coconut Beach access
settlement suggested
A settlement allowing residents access to the
beach off Coconut Avenue in Anna Maria may have
been reached.
Attorneys for the city and Coconut Avenue property
owner John Dooms, as well as surveyors, have tentatively
agreed on an as-yet-unknown-width public beach access
at the street end and the Gulf of Mexico.
The pedestrian access has been used by residents for
more than 35 years. Dooms contends a pair of city reso-
lutions, passed 30 years ago, vacated the street end to him.
Terms of the settlement, which needs city com-
mission approval, include:
a public hearing be held on the matter of vacat-
ing the street end to Dooms;
the city would retain a pedestrian accessway to
the beach at Coconut Avenue;
any beach access would be for residents only,
and no vehicles would be allowed to park on or near
the access;
Dooms will landscape the property except for the
access itself, which will be city maintained;
the petitions for the changes would be initiated
by the City of Anna Maria, saving Dooms filing costs;
as everyone has "agreed to disagree" as to valid-
ity of the 1960s-vintage resolutions, the argument
would be avoided entirely by replacing the action with
the current public accessway and street vacation;
due to the unclear nature of ownership of the
accessway, city attorney James Dye is recommending the
public be prohibited from using the beach access until the
matter is resolved.

School funding shortfall $100 million:

S Superintendent Witt


Gene Witt needs $100 million for Manatee County
Schools during the next five years. And he wants an ex-
tra penny added to sales tax charges to pay for it.
Witt, the superintendent of schools in the county, has
been stumping for the extra revenue at cities and the
county commission. Last week, he was in Bradenton
Beach to request the city council's okay through a reso-
lution for the proposal.
Witt said Manatee County schools are growing by
about 1,000 new students a year. Additional schools and
more classrooms are needed, he said, to keep up with the
"baby boom."
An estimated $106 million shortfall in school fund-
ing is what school officials are facing during the next few
years to meet the demand of the new students. To meet
that demand, Witt has come up with two options to raise
revenue: an increase in the sales tax of goods valued at less
than $5,000, or an increase in property taxes. Both alter-


natives would require voter approval, Witt said.
The extra penny sales tax would generate about $104
million from 1994 to 1998, Witt said. He is proposing to use
about 95 percent of the money generated for schools, with the
rest being split between the cities and county. Bradenton
Beach would receive about $62,000, Witt estimated.
The property tax increase would be used to pay off a
20-year general obligation bond. The tax hike would
amount to .96 mills, translating to about $48 per year on
a house valued at $75,000. A mill is $1 for every $1,000
of a home's appraised value.
Witt said the extra money would be used to build a new
high school near the current Bayshore High, conversion of
Bayshore into a middle school, construction of a new high
school in the eastern part of the county, and improvement and
renovation of many other schools in the county.
Anna Maria School is slated to receive $340,000 for
new resource rooms under the five-year plan, Witt said.


City seeks grant

for beach

walkovers
By Pat Copeland
Islander Reporter
In a special meeting last week, the Holmes Beach
City council voted to proceed with a grant application
to fund beach walkover construction.
The city will apply for a $50,000 Florida Recreation
Development Assistance Grant to constructbeach walk-
overs at the street ends of28th, 30th, 31st, 38th and 72nd
Streets. The grant requires no matching funds.
Public Works Superintendent John Fernandez
told council the walkovers will be similar to those to
be built by the county as part of the beach
renourishment project. The county funded walkovers
will be at 33rd, 36th, 37th, 52nd and 65th Streets, with
the walkovers at 65th and 37th Streets to be handi-
capped accessible.
"Ibhe walkovers will be somewhat different depend-
ing on their location. I would recommend that we look
into using ramps instead of steps," advised Fernandez. "I
have apesonal preference to using ramps; I think they're
a little safer for the public and they would give access to
handicapped people."
Fernandez said the purpose of the walkovers is to
protect vegetation that will be planted to help build dunes.
The dunes, in turn, will protect the beach from erosion.
Councilwoman Mary Ellen Reichard asked why
the locations were all at the south end of the city.
Fernandez said there are currently ramps and steps in
other areas of the city.
Councilman Rich Bohnenberger added, "Wepicked
some of these locations because there are steps there now
in need of repair, and rather than spend more money on
a dangerous situation, we can put in ramps."
Council Chairman Don Howard pointed out that at
30th and 31st Streets, there are dangerous rocks.
Fernandez also noted those were erosion areas in the past
Councilwoman Carol Whitmore asked about the
very steep 56th Street beach entrance. Howard said the
28th Street walkover could be relocated to that area.

Maintenance man hired by AMC after squabble


Anna Maria officials have narrowed their search for
a new director of public works to four people.
Commissioners last week agreed to conduct inter-
views this week with John Chaney, J. Faarup, Joseph
O'Neill and Don Tarantola, selected from a field of 13 by
a search committee.
Commissioners also approved the hiring of a main-
tenance worker for the city Friday, but not without some
angry words between Vice Mayor Doug Wolfe and Com-
missioner George McKay.
"I sometimes believe we are here just as a formality,"
McKay lashed out at Wolfe, the head of the search com-
mittee after Wolfe's announcement that Fernandez had
been hired by the city and would report to work Monday.


By Pat Copeland
Islander Reporter
The Holmes Beach City Council rejected a settle-
ment offer from Anson Jones concerning code viola-
tions at Jones' residence at 510 58th St, opting to let the
matter go before a judge for a ruling.
Public Works Superintendent John Fernandez said
Jones was cited by the board about 10 months ago for un-
kempt property and holding out a portion of his residence
for rental use. The house is in a single family zone.
"At the code enforcement board hearing, Mr. Jones
and his attorney proposed that if the board took no ac-
tion, they would take it in front of a judge for a declara-
tory judgment, as long as he did not rent this other unit
he had," explained Fernandez. "The board said okay -
go for the judge. The court date is this week."
In an effort to avoid going to court, Jones attorney
Peter Mackey made a settlement offer to the city last
week. It contained the following proposals:
If the City of Holmes Beach would issue a vari-
ance to permit Mr. Jones to rent the west wing of his
home, Jones would not discuss the terms of the settle-
ment with anyone. Nor would he advise anyone that he
had the city's permission to rent a portion of his home.


McKay took offense with the hiring of John Fernandez,
Jr. without commission approval until after the fact
"Half the problem I have is I'm part of the team,
you're part of the team, and if I'm part of the team, at least
give the courtesy to meet people," McKay told Wolfe.
"We've turned down people for occupational permits if
they don't show up for a bloody meeting, and this guy is
going to be an employee."
Wolfe responded that the charter of the city authorizes
the mayor to hire employees with ratification of the com-
mission and, in light of the "emergency conditions, I told
this guy to go to work," he said.
Mayor Ray Simches backed up Wolfe in the dispute. "I
believed there was a sense of urgency with this," Simches


Jones would commit to maintaining his property
by having a lawn service come on a weekly or bi-
weekly basis and would take care of the boat and trailer
currently in front of his home.
The lawsuit would be dismissed with prejudice
to the parties.
On the offer, Mayor Pat Geyer remarked, "Let's
face it; he's not giving us anything. You're supposed
to maintain your yard."
Councilwoman Carol Whitmore said she was in
the house in the 70s and it was a single family home.
Councilwoman Mary Ellen Reichard said from
the outside, it appears to be one dwelling, and taxes are
being paid on "one single family unit"
In a unanimous vote, council agreed to display a
plaque in city hall to honor residents who have served
in the armed forces.
The plaque will contain the names of those killed
or missing in action or disabled in the service of their
country and will be dedicated on Veteran's Day, Nov.
11.
Council Chairman Don Howard said
Bohnenberger should not be expected to pay for the
plaque, as he had offered, but the city should do so.


said, "and the commission has the final word on this."
"My problem is that this man has already been hired,"
Commissioner Dorothy McChesney said in support of
McKay. "I thought these applications would come before us."
In the end, Fernandez was hired by the city on a 4-1
vote, with McKay dissenting. Fernandez is the son of
Holmes Beach Superintendent of Public Works John
Fernandez, Sr.
As to the public works director, the four nominees for the
post will be interviewed individually by commissioners.
Chaney, a self-employed contractor holding a Florida
Contractor's License, is from Palmetto. He is the head of
J.E. Chaney Construction. He also attended the Harry
Boothe Construction School. Boothe is the interim direc-
tor of public works for the City of Anna Maria.
Faarup has also been self-employed for the past three
years. A Holmes Beach resident, Faarup is past director
of construction of Enterprise Construction Co. Ltd. of
Hartford, CT., and graduated from Southern Illinois Uni-
versity with a degree in Civil Engineering. He was sug-
gested to be placed in the final four by McChesney, who
was listed as a reference on his employment application.
O'Neill also holds a civil engineering degree from
Villanova University. He most recently was employed by
John Ilgen of Tampa. O'Neill is a Bradenton resident and
holds a contractor's license in Florida, as well as a being
a professional engineer, a threshold inspector and a real
estate broker.
Tarantola is currently a Lakeland resident who is a gen-
eral contractor. He holds professional engineering, general
contractor and roofing contractor licenses in Florida.

Men in suits
They were large men in suits. With ties. Totally out
of place. Totally conspicuous.
I sensed instantly those overstarched men weren't just
businessmen.
More came in the door. They were mostly all very
large guys. They looked a lot like "former players." Play-
ers in the sense of importance ... and baseball. Lastly, one
man with the group entered in a very cashmere looking
dark blue sweater. Jim Leyland. A Pirate?
Yes, The Pirate. General Manager of the team.
Only Andy Van Slyke would stand out more in the
crowd at Turtles. His good looks would create a stir to
match his baseball fame.
There were 12 to 15 "suits" and Leyland ... hanging
out, talking to Islanders over the sounds of local band
Lifeguard. I don't know if anyone bothered to ask why
they were there or cared. It wasn't even Halloween and
some of the locals were costumed and partying. Ignoring
the suits.
But isn't it neat that we live on this little Island where
no one's too important to enjoy the local nightlife.

Too important
An election in Bradenton Beach took place at the
qualifying desk last week. Only the three incumbents filed
to run in the Dec. 7 election, meaning they will automati-
cally be retained for an additional two years.
This is-in direct contrast to other elections on the Is-
land, most notably this year's Holmes Beach election,
which had 10 candidates running for three seats.
The difference?
Perhaps it is the long-standing position against any
high bridges to the Island which the Bradenton Beach City
Council has long advocated and vocally pronounced.
Perhaps it is the revitalization effort, paid for mostly
through a state grant, that is providing Bridge Street with
a $500,000 face-lift.
Perhaps it is the construction of a brand-new library,
paid for through a kindly donation.
Perhaps it is the council's response to resident com-
plaints of a 31 percent tax increase early this summer,
resulting in a budget one percent lower than last year's.
Cynics could say that voter apathy is playing a part
in the incumbent return in the city.
But we believe it is satisfaction with a job well done
by the sitting council.
Congratulations to Mayor Katie Pierola, Vice Mayor
Jack Charlton and Councilman Bill Campbell on their
successful and very easy re-election campaign.

Raccoons love
trash collection days
To aconsiderableextent, raccoons are nocturnal animals.
Property owners who put their garbage at the street
the evening before pickup make the contents of their con-
tainers attractive to raccoons for a period of 12 to 18 hours.
Because the truck generally comes to my place be-
tween 10 a.m. and noon on my scheduled trash pickup
days, I place my containers at the street after breakfast.
Thus far, I have not had a problem with raccoons.

If not here, write FDOT
Thank you for mailing the Islander Bystander to me
in Indiana. We have really enjoyed reading the happen-
ings while we are away from Anna Maria.
I sent a letter to Florida Department of Transportation
in Bartow, Fla. I hope everyone who is unable to attend
the bridge meetings will write to get their point of view
in the official record.
Thankfully we will be back to Anna Maria in early
November, so please don't mail further papers.
Thanks again. You have a great, informative paper
and you are doing a good job.

McClash full of clap trap on bridge
I note with dismay the lead article of "Local offi-
cials..." comments regarding the bridge. My invitation
was limited to 100 words, whereas BOCC's Joe
McClash's top billing came in at 287. It isn't the nearly
300% factor that bothers me.
What does is the utterly misleading information of-
fered therein, held up to Island citizens as fact.
For example:
a. We learn there must be two Dr. Bob Sheets work-
ing for NOAA. A personal letter complete with graphs
from him in June indicates, in direct conflict, that there is
nearly a 300% (20% to 60%) increase in geostrophic wind
impact between our bridge beds and those proposed. The
FDOT line, offered by McClash, deals with over-ocean
winds sans ground friction and has been successfully chal-
lenged before DEP, who didn't buy it either.


b. Again, the term 65-foot bridge is a political misno-
mer also used by McClash. The proposed handrail is about
79 feet and the wind hazard impact factor is 80 feet Such
bridges close statewide (we hold substantiation) at 45
miles per hour. McClash, erroneously on record, stated
Dade County mega-bridges did not close during Hurri-
cane Andrew. Perhaps he was just misinformed? We went
there and asked. Officials indicated that the Rickenbacker
bridge closed for 37 hours and during Andrew the Tuttle
and Folly bridges closed with 30 to 40% unevacuated!
c. As for a bridge accommodating only what (we)
allow... in consideration of hurricane evacuation history
typified in "b." above, duplicated here and elsewhere, the
first thing we should disallow is construction of three here,
inviting our own entrapment
d. McClash avoids that FDOT's one-million-dollar
plan was predicated on 10 to 12 feet of water to use huge
barges where in our case only 10 to 12 INCHES exist
over turtle grasses, and that he, personally, has proposed
DEP "mitigate" the mangroves FDOT had misrepresented
by about 80%. The list is very long.
e. In six-and-a-half years we have yet to hear one fac-
tual reason to support high replacement bridges, but doz-
ens not to!
Since health, safety and well-being are the primary
reasons for any public servant to be elected, I challenge
Commissioner McClash to offer factual proof to verify his
comments in an open, one-on-one debate before the public
challenging him to justify torpedoing our Island member's
best effort before the MPO and to challenge his flagrant
manipulation of Island interests by stonewalling the bridge
agenda during a Sept. 30 BOCC/IEO workshop.
Perhaps we should feel gratified to be considered such
a threat to his objectivity. We feel it's something else. The
public deserves, at minimum, consistent credibility in its
public servants!

THOSE WERE THE BAYS
Part 6, What's in a Name,
by June Alder

















What are those faint sounds we hear from across the bay on still, moonlit nights?
Could it be Margarita calling to her lover?


A TRAGIC LOVE STORY


There are a number of legends about
Perico Pompon, the 19th-century fisher-
man for whom our neighboring Perico Is-
land was named. Probably the most affect-
ing is the one put on paper in 1951 by that
great spinner of tales, adventure writer and
Manatee County telephone pioneer Jack
Leffingwell. (Regular readers may recall
he was the subject of a series of columns
last spring.)
Here is Leffingwell's tale:
Many, many years ago a Spanish fish-
erman by the name of Perico built himself
atop an Indian mound on a grassy island
at the mouth of Palma Sola Bay a log
house with a palm-thatched roof. Next, he
cleared the land and planted a garden. And
last, but not least, he married a wife, a lady
of Spanish or Cuban extraction whose
name was Consuela. We do not know
where Perico got his bride, whether he
married her "por cura" (by the priest) or
not, but anyway, Consuela arrived and
remained as Mrs. Perico "fait accompli."
About the year 1846 Mrs. Perico pre-
sented her spouse with a "ninita," a tiny
baby daughter. She was christened
Margarita. When Margarita was about ten
years old her mother died and was buried
under the shade of a great rubber tree near
the homestead.
When this beautiful black-eyed senorita
was 16yearsold,shefellinlovewithayoung
Confederate soldier who was stationed at the
garrison at Fort Brooke (Tampa). The young
man returned her affections and as often as
permissible sailed down Tampa Bay with
Captain William Tresca and disembarked at
Shaw's Point where Margarita would meet
him with a rowboat.
Alas for true love, the soldier's com-
pany was transferred from garrison to field
duty and he marched away.
Poor Margarita could neither read nor
write and for over a year heard nothing
from her lover. Then one sad day, a horse-
man from Manatee brought her the fateful
word that her sweetheart had given his life
for his country while fighting in Virginia.
Margarita was paralyzed with grief.
She shed no tears but brooded in silent
agony. At length she decided that life
without her lover was not worth living and
that the best thing to do was to join him in


the Great Beyond. She would commit
suicide, and to prove her great love she
would do it in that terrible Latin manner,
"auto-da-fe."
First she bathed, then she put on her
prettiest dress and placed flowers in her
hair. Next, taking a bottle of turpentine
she wet her clothing with the flammable
liquid. Then a match and she was in-
stantly a pillar of flame.
She sang until she collapsed, a
charred corpse.
That night when her father returned
from the fields, he found the remains of
his beloved daughter. Digging a grave, he
tenderly placed her beside her mother and
went grief-stricken to his lonely home.
The next morning he was awakened
by a loud "Hallo," and in walked the sup-
posedly dead sweetheart. The story of his
death had been untrue. When he heard the
story of his sweetheart's fate the young
soldier asked to be taken to her grave.
Perico did so and then sadly returned to
his house.
Suddenly he was startled by a pistol
shot. Fearing the worst, he dashed back to
the tiny cemetery and there he found the
young man lying dead across his
sweetheart's grave with a pistol bullet in
his head.
Again Perico dug a grave beside the
mother and daughter and therein placed
Margarita's lover. Poor Perico could not
stand the tragedy and a day or two later he
took his own life by cutting his throat with
a razor. Neighbors from the mainland found
him the next day and then there were four
graves beneath the banyan tree.
Now (1951), I remember being told
that going to this great tree on a moonlit
night exactly at midnight, you can hear
from one side of the tree a voice calling,
"Margarita, Margarita, where are you?"
and then from the other side of the tree a
faint voice responding, "Querido mio, I
come to thee."
That old banyan tree is gone and so,
too, are the graves of Perico, Consuelo,
Margarita and her soldier-sweetheart. But
perhaps somewhere in the moonlight
neathh the sighing palms the lovers'
voices still can be heard, if there is any-
one to listen.

Islands want county action on transit problems


By Pat Copeland
Islander Reporter
Island officials, with the approval of the Island Transit
Planning Organization, agreed to ask the county commission
to draw up a time line on a study of the transit system in their
communities and recommendations for improvements.
This was the result of Anna Maria Mayor Ray
Simches' query at last week's meeting of Island elected
officials on the status of the transit study committee, which
was proposed at a September 30 meeting between Island
and county officials.
County Commissioner Stan Stephens said the issue of
better service on the islands was referred to the transit depart-
ment for review, and "we're waiting for transit to come back
to us with modifications for routing and a recommendation."
Holmes Beach Councilwoman Carol Whitmore said
County Administrator William Estabrook had given the
go ahead for the transit department to connect the four-
mile gap between Manatee and Sarasota Counties on

Longboat Key. She feared that the connection would jeop-
ardize any future state funds for a trolley system, because
the trolley would not qualify as an experimental project
once the service is in place.
County Commissioner Pat Glass suggested the four-
mile connection be designated a temporary project in or-
der not to jeopardize any future funds.
Whitmore also asked the group's permission to send
a letter to John Starling, director of mass transit for the
Department of Transportation, in reply to a letter sent by
county commissioners. The county letter indicated that a
proposed Island trolley system was on hold because the
Island cities would not commit funding to the project.
Whitmore's reply said, in part, "The Islands have
taken a position that no other incorporated or unincorpo-
rated areas in Manatee County pay for transit, thus we will
not pay 50 percent of the cost of this project."
Officials agreed to send the reply, as well as a letter to the
county commission requesting a time line on the transit study.

SAM is ready to rock 'n'
roll over bridge issue
By Tomara Kafka
Islander Correspondent
About 30 members of Save Anna Maria, Inc., gathered
at the Holmes Beach Public Library where Melody Kramer,
president, encouraged each one to call 10 others who would
in turn call 10 others.
Kramer told Saturday's loyal core group of opponents to
a proposed new Manatee Avenue bridge that 500 persons are
needed to turn out at both public meetings on Oct 26 and 27.
"Especially the one at the Manatee County Commission
chambers," she said. "I'm not that worried about the one on
the Island."
The hearings, sponsored by the Department of Transpor-
tation (DOT), are in response to public outcry against the
planned 65-foot fixed-span bridge to replace the existing 37-
year-old drawbridge.
The experts seated at the front table, Kramer, Jim Kissick,
Kay Hoey and Izzy Amaro had contributed hours of research,
correspondence and bridge studies at-their-own-expense in-
cluding trips around the state of Florida. They visited various
65-foothigh, fixed-span bridges as well as older draw-bridges
and to lobbied elected officials in Tallahassee. Others in the
small library meeting room had worked equally as hard.
The MPO scheduled the two public meetings long after
the decision was made to replace the Manatee Avenue draw-
bridge.
To prepare for the public hearings, SAM printed 10,000
flyers. Some were inserted in The Islander Bystander, others
will be handed out at the public hearing along with posters,
buttons and T-shirts. Their message: No mega-bridges.
SAM wants to delay DOT's plans. Time is on their side,
says Kay Hoey, who reported that the Florida Department of
Environmental Protection (DEP) is now "asking for a repu-
table study by DOT on the safety of all 65-foot bridges."

Swiftmud looks to future of water in Florida


By Paul Roat
Flanked on three sides by water, it's incongruous that
Florida should have a problem with water. After all, we
get more than 53 inches of rainfall a year, and with all the
lakes, rivers, creeks and sloughs, plus the Atlantic Ocean
and Gulf of Mexico, how could we have a water problem?
The problem isn't not having enough water, it's hav-
ing enough potable water.
Or having too much water during heavy rains.
Or having the water we've got being clean enough of
chemicals to be usable.
In an effort to work through the water dilemma in the


Swiftmud estimates 1.5
billion gallons of fresh-
water are used daily in
the 16-county area.
More than 42 percent of
that water is used for
agriculture, 30 percent
is used for human
consumption and use,
and the rest for
industrial and
recreational use,
primarily golf courses.


state, Florida's five wa-
ter management districts
are preparing 20-year
water comprehensive
plans. The plans will
deal with water supply,
flood protection, water
quality and natural sys-
tems such as wetlands
well into the next cen-
tury.
The Southwest Florida
Water Management
District, or Swiftmud,
encompasses a 16-
county area of which
Manatee is a part.
Swiftmud officials pre-


sented preliminary goals to address the four areas of con-
cern to government officials and citizens last Thursday.
Comments from Manatee and elsewhere will be in-
corporated into the report, due to be completed Novem-
ber 1994. Swiftmud's water plan will then be combined
to create a statewide water management document by No-
vember 1995.

Water supply
Coming up with enough drinkable water has been
estimated as the greatest challenge facing Floridians in the
next few years. Swiftmud estimates 1.5 billion gallons of
freshwater are used daily in the 16-county area. More than
42 percent of that water is used for agriculture, 30 percent
is used for human consumption and use, and the rest for
industrial and recreational use, primarily golf courses.
Most of the water used comes from groundwater
sources. Most of that groundwater is replenished "re-
charged" is the technical term from rainfall. The prob-
lem is that as the area grows in population and density,
more water is used than can be recharged. Saltwater from
the Gulf then encroaches into the water withdrawal areas
of the region, further limiting the freshwater availability.
Swiftmud officials predict that freshwater demands
will increase to 2.4 billion gallons per day by the year
2020, a 45 percent increase. Ironically, the greatest in-
crease in population is estimated at the southern areas of

the state the areas that already have the greatest prob-
lems with saltwater intrusion.
In an effort to deal with population and water demand


increases, Swiftmud
officials are looking
to find and develop
local sources of wa-
ter. There is also an
"aggressive" pursuit
of water conserva-
tion underway.
Both tacts will be
dealt with in a re-
gional perspective.
One aspect of
water supply that is
becoming more im-
portant for water
managers is
stormwater runoff.
With an increase in

it historically did. Government is looking to capture the
runoff after rains -and store it for later use during drier
times.
Treated sewage is another method of enhancing the
groundwater systems. By returning the used water to the
ground, it can then be re-used.

Flood protection
The summer flood of 1992 has been referred to as a
100-year storm. In Manatee, more than 13 inches of rain
fell within a few days, flooding creeks and streams and
the homes of people who lived along the banks. As some
have said, Florida does not have a flooding problem, we
have a development
problem with people

chemicals amounts to:
* 245,770 pounds of
phosphorous;
* 1,271,210 pounds of
nitrogen;
* 33,440 pounds of lead;
* 91,480 pounds of zinc.


Swiftmud of-
ficials have devel-
oped a large number
of streams and canals
to carry the flood wa-
ters away from ur-
banized areas. Too
often, though, the ca-
nals are not ad-
equately maintained
and don't perform as
designed.


Steps are being taken locally to offset the flooding
problems. A special stormwater utility fee has been im-
posed in Sarasota County. Funds from that fee will be
used to enhance existing flood controls, as well as create


new ones.
There is also a move to slow down the flow of water
before it reaches the Gulf and bays. Historically, the goal
was to move water away from densely populated areas as
rapidly as possible. Now, there is a trend to mimic natu-
ral systems, with winding creeks in lieu of straight-line
canals and ditches, and the creation of wetland areas in-
stead of pipes carrying water directly into the bays.

Water quality
Stormwater runoff carries with it all the chemicals
that may be found it its path. Chemicals from automobile
exhausts, fertilizers and pesticides from yards, and other
chemicals run into the bays and Gulf often with ex-
treme effects on marine life.
Also, as wells tap more and more water from the
ground, minerals are becoming more prevalent in fresh-
water supplies.
In Sarasota Bay, it has been estimated that the annual
discharge of chemicals amounts to:
245,770 pounds of phosphorous;
1,271,210 pounds of nitrogen;
33,440 pounds of lead;
91,480 pounds of zinc.
Zinc seems to enter the bay through rainfall. The other
chemicals are carried through stormwater runoff into the
bay. Obviously, reducing the amount of runoff into the
bays will reduce the chemicals.
One method to slowing chemical increases into the
system is through the creation of wetlands. Plants in wet-
land areas absorb much of the chemicals before it can
enter bays.

Natural systems
Preservation, protection and restoration of natural
systems is a continual fight in Florida. With 600 new resi-
dents a week moving to the state, more and more land that
was once natural is transformed into developments. Short
of stopping all new growth, some balance between natu-
ral needs and development pressure must be achieved.
One method Swiftmud has used to protect natural
systems is to buy them. Swiftmud owns 200,000 acres of
land. Most of the property is undisturbed, and used as
parks or water recharge areas.
Another method of preserving natural systems lies in
habitat restoration. By taking disturbed areas and replanting
them with native plants, a natural system may be re-created.

The next step
Swiftmud officials will continue to accept comments and
thoughts on water supply, quality, flooding and natural re-
sources until next summer. Call or write Swiftmud at:

Island Halloween ... still fun after all these years


By Tomara Kafka
Islander Correspondent
While we're sure to see plenty of the traditional Hal-
loween witches, goblins and monsters roaming Island
streets, costume choices for Island trick-or-treaters and
party-goers tend to be more individualistic.
"Barney (the dinosaur) is a good seller," says Eckerd
Drugs Manager Joe McNaughton, Holmes Beach. And,
says McNaughton, anything from the latest Disney movie
sells, such as Aladdin. But people tend to put their own
costumes together. "The big sellers are the individual
make-up kits. People buy the separate items such as masks
and earrings, then mix and match with what they have at
home." And they always wait until the last minute to buy
them, too, says McNaughton.
And shoppers usually know what they are looking for
when they enter a store. "They have something specific in
mind," says Lee Downey, owner of the Magic Closet, a con-
signment shop in Holmes Beach. "A lady wanted the wed-
ding gown I had hanging in the window but it was too expen-
sive," she says. "One girl wanted to be a waitress and I had
this apron that looked like a tuxedo. She was thrilled."
Halloween may be a day historically steeped in mys-
tery, but for many children and some adults it's the one
day out of the year where you can dress up in an outra-
geous costume, have some fun and maybe act a little wild.
Halloween can be enjoyable "as long as it's a fun
thing and not taken too seriously," says Herb Boyd,
Holmes Beach resident, psychologist and retired USF
special education professor.
"Kids liketheideaofdressing up," says Boyd. How they
deal with it depends on their influences. '"The idea of kids
dressing up is dependent on the parents point of view. If the
parents get a kick out of it, the kids get a kick out of it."
Boyd says he enjoys Halloween and sometimes wears
a mask when trick-or-treaters come to his door. "We have
friends who dress up to greet kids at the door," he says.
As an Island resident since 1958, Boyd says the only
trouble he's experienced on Halloween night is teenagers
who knock on the door about 10:00 or 11:00 at night. His
solution: "I just turn the outside lights off," he says.
While other parts of the world may have a different
attitude, on the Island there are relatively few problems on
Halloween night
"Most kids are accompanied by a parent," says Ser-
geant Dale Stephenson, who has served eight years with
the Holmes Beach Police Department "And that's good."
However, Halloween can sometimes be an excuse for
teens to participate in a little mischief.
For instance, under the fire codes, condos must keep
fire extinguishers outside, says Stephenson. "Two years
ago, we stopped a car with four teenage boys and seven
fire extinguishers." What do they do with them? "They
empty them into (swimming) pools."
In Holmes Beach, there has never been any case of
product tampering, says Stephenson.
The Bradenton Beach Police Department confirms
the lack of problems in that city, too. "I can't recall any-
thing happening last year," says Chief Jack Maloney, who
has been in Bradenton Beach for five years. He remem-
bers his previous job: "We had grave desecrations in New
York," he says. "There's nothing like that here."
So what will the police do on Halloween? Probably re
up like cops. "We don't do Halloween," says Maloney.


Time for an Island Trick or Treat
Nancy Frushour (left), of Bradenton Beach, hands out treats to Katie Frushour, the six-year-old Chinese lady; Matt
McArthur, the eight-year-old football player for the Bears; Andy McCarrick, the nine-year-old werewolf, and Alicia
Fisiorek, the 10-year-old doctor. Trick-or-treat bags were provided by Island Foods.



Halloween can be safe and fun


Island kids can look forward to a fun and safe Hallow-
een with a minimum of worry for safety or crime. But a
few reminders are always good for both parents and kids
on that once a year trick-or-treat evening.

Tips on costume safety:
Wigs should be flame resistant.
Carry a flashlight or battery-powered lantern.
Use reflective strips, patches or paint to increase
visibility.
Masks can obscure vision. Make-up is safer.
Toy weapons should be made of cardboard to pre-
vent injury.
Trick-or-treat bags should be small enough that tots
will not trip over them or have their vision blocked.
Wear shoes. Everyday shoes are safer than high
heels or poor-fitting costume shoes.

Tips for parents:
Parents or a responsible older child should accom-
pany younger children.
Know which route children will take in order to be
able to locate them quickly if necessary.
Know who their companions will be. Small groups
of friends are best.
What homes will they visit? It's best not to call at
the homes of strangers or to go into any house.
Set a reasonable time, to be home and insist they
keep it

Safety rules for walking:
Cross the street at the crosswalk.
Wait for the proper signal.
Look both ways before crossing streets.
Be alert for cars turning at intersections.
Never walk into the road from between parked cars.
Stay on the sidewalk whenever you can.
If there is no sidewalk, walk on the left side, facing
traffic.

Keeping your home safe for
trick-or-treaters:
Greet children at the door. Don't encourage them to
come inside.
Keeps lights on. Children need to see where they are
going.
Remove any obstacles from steps, sidewalks and lawns.

When the evening is over:
Inspect treats. Wash then cut all fruit into small
pieces before eating, discard un-packaged items and throw
away any items with opened, loose or torn wrapping.
Remove costumes and make-up.
To calm down from the excitement, take a warm
bath, sit quietly and have a warm cup of milk or cocoa.

best prize rooms in the area complete the festivities. The
fun starts winding down at 3 p.m.
Tickets, available for pre-purchase at the school's Pump-
kin Patch or on the school's grounds the day of the festival,
are sold in 25 cent increments. Pre-purchase of tickets is en-
couraged. All proceeds go to the school's PITO.


County ready to negotiate with Amerecycle


By Pat Copeland
Islander Reporter
At last week's meeting of the islands' elected offi-
cials, county commissioners said they are not ready to vote
on a contract with Amerecycle on its MSW (mixed solid
waste) facility proposed for the county.
County Commissioner Stan Stephens said, "For them
to be able to obtain that contract, they have to show us they
have a $10 million operating bond and they can put up the
financial resources necessary to take the next step. There
are a lot of questions that are not answered and will not
be answered until we go to negotiations and bring back a
closed contract."
County Commissioner Pat Glass added, "We have a
legal bidding procedure. We select your top firm and go
to negotiations. (We need to) go to the table so we can tell
you what it is we're going to negotiate in the hard bucks
and the environmental concerns."
Anna Maria Commissioner Dottie McChesney asked


what happens if the negotiations are not fruitful. Glass said
the commission could go to the second company in line
or go back out to bid.
Homes Beach Councilman Rich Bohnenberger asked
what the county commission would be voting on at its
meeting Oct. 28.
Stephens replied, "We'll be voting on whether we go
into negotiations. There are three or four issues that we
have to be concerned about. One is trying to find some-
thing that can be modified in 10 or 15 years as technol-
ogy advances. Other issues are odor, the quality of the
compost and the cost of extending the life of the landfill
versus finding a new one."
Holmes Beach Councilman Don Howard asked if tip-
ping fees will rise. Stephens said they will increase from
$18 per ton to $50 to $54 per ton.
"The people who pay the haulers will be paying for
that service, so they will be paying the tipping fee," said
Stephens. "It will be a user fee for the use of the landfill,


and it will be based on what it costs to put the facility into
effect and operate it."
Glass noted that the tipping fee will rise no matter
what recycling system the county selects because "of a
different management of the waste stream" is required.
Officials agreed to appoint a committee at their
Nov.17 meeting to study police services, needs and costs
on the Island. The committee will be composed of non-
elected officials selected from recommendations, as well
as a representative of each Island police agency.
In other business, officials will work with the county
on identifying a project for grant funding. The project
must involve cooperation between intergovernmental
agencies and focus on comprehensive management of
beaches, protection of coastal and ocean resources or
coastal hazards.
The four island cities are also working with the county
on an urban and community forestry grant to beautify the
main arteries in the county.

Bollettieri hosts reception
for 'smokeout' day
If you're thinking of quitting smoking, or you know
someone planning to quit, mark Nov. 18 on your calendar.
That's the day of the American Cancer Society's
Great American Smokeout, an upbeat, good-natured
effort to encourage smokers to give up smoking for 24
hours, if only to prove to themselves they can. They
might quit for good.
The 1993 honorary chairman for the Great Ameri-
can Smokeout in the Manatee Unit of the American
Cancer Society is Nick Bollettieri, tennis instructor and
professional tennis coach. Bollettieri will host a kick-off
reception at the Adult Center of the Bollettieri Tennis

to assist in preparation for participation on Nov. 18.
Prizes donated by Bollettieri will be awarded and tours
of the tennis academy will be offered.
Nonsmokers can join in the fun by "adopting" a
family member, a friend or coworkers who smoke and
encouraging them to quit.
"Above all, it's the smokers' day," says Dr. Whaley.
"The American Cancer Society's Great American
Smokeout focuses attention on those who are trying to
lighten up instead of lighting up. Everyone enjoys root-
ing while they try."

Korea offers culture shock


for Islander


By Kay Pruden
Islander Correspondent
Islander Sharon Allen learned the meaning of the
phrase "culture shock" while on a recent visit to Korea
with her mother-in-law. The pair was visiting her brother-
in-law Rick Allen and his family, stationed at Yongsan
Base in Seoul.
"It was a wonderful learning experience to observe a
completely different culture," said Allen.
"We arrived in Seoul about 5 p.m. after a grueling 20-
hour plane trip. Traffic is the most congested I've ever
seen, usually about seven cars across a four-lane street.
Cars, buses and taxis were going every which way,
honking at each other and cramming every available inch
of space, but it's really nothing compared to the people
traffic. There are so many people in so little space."
Allen said the Koreans are, "very impressed with
Americans. They always wanted to know where we came
from; although, if you said Florida or even U.S.A., they
didn't understand. They could only identify 'America."'
Koreans were particularly fascinated with Allen's blonde
hair, she said, and she was besieged with requests to touch it.
Each request was accompanied by a polite bow.
"There were times when I just had to go back to the
base, because I was so tired of being touched and poked
and pushed," lamented Allen.
She noted that education is a top priority in Korea,
with students setting out on the train at 7:30 p.m. carry-
ing their lunch and dinner. They remain in classes as late
as 10:30 p.m., napping and eating on the train as they
travel from home to classes.
Mass travel in the city is by subway and city bus, said
Allen. She was impressed with the immaculate subway
trains, which are covered with beautiful art work. The city
buses, packed like cans of sardines, travel at breakneck







Merchants, some as
old as 80, are a

backs. _


speeds up and down the hilly streets. She cautioned
against looking out the windows on these wild rides, be-
cause vehicles are so close riders can touch people in the
next car.
One of Allen's most thoughtful times came on a
visit to the DMZ (demilitarized zone) and the Freedom
Bridge where civilians and photographs are not permit-
ted. The 4,000-meter-wide DMZ is probably the most
militarized zone in the world, observed Allen, with
mines, obstacles to pedestrian and vehicle traffic and
constant patrols.
"It was pretty scary stuff," she admitted, "but a trip
and a half. Ricky pulled some strings and got us over the
bridge. It was mind-boggling to see the Korean and U.
S. military practically side by side."
On a side trip to Prayer Mountain, Allen said they saw
a mountainside filled with tiny huts where Koreans go to
meditate, fast and pray for two to three days at a time.
"We also visited the Taejon International Exposi-
tion Korea '93," said Allen. "Its theme is 'The Challenge
of a New Road to Development,' and participants in-
clude 100 countries and 28 international organizations."
Reflecting on her visit, Allen noted, "There is no
crime in Korea. The policemen don't even carry guns.
Their main job is traffic control.
"There is great respect for the elderly and worship
of ancestors. There is no welfare. Families take care of
their own and live in multi-family dwellings. Everyone
works, and manual labor is well respected.
"In spite of all these things, I came home really proud
and grateful to be an American. Getting from one place to
another in a reasonable time, living in a comfortably large
home, shopping in one store instead of six or seven shops
and the lack of the overwhelming crush of people and cars
makes me know 'there's no place like home.'"

the Golden Spoon Award for the first time. While
Euphemia Haye has made Florida Trend's top 100 for the
past 12 years in a row, the magazine's restaurant critic
Robert Tolf says "D'Arcy and Raymond Arpke... have
been doing so many things right the past several years
they've made it into the select Golden Spoon circle."
The 1993 top 200restaurants in Florida usedto be the top
100. Tolf, who has been dining his way through Florida
Trend's top 100 for 20 years, expanded the list this year.
"Today," writes Tolf, "Florida has more restaurants
per capital than any state in the union. This $11.7 billion
Florida industry has grown so big that drawing up a list

of the top 100 is no longer a challenge, its just unfair."
Beach Bistro, Holmes Beach, has been recognized as
one of the top 200 best Florida restaurants for 1993. As
one of last year's top 100, Beach Bistro continues to serve
"fussily prepared fish and meats and the best bouillabaisse
this side of southern France," says Tolf.
Euphemia Haye, in another competition, was
awarded first place by the Florida Restaurant Association
for Best Desserts and Dessert Menu in August.
The menu was designed for the Haye Loft, Euphemia
Haye's lounge and dessert room, by Design Imaging/

Volunteers make school better
Anna Maria Elementary School volunteer Lynn Modisett
(back, right) helps some of the students in Karen Paul's third-
grade class with rounding up numbers. Modisett is one of
many of the parents, grandparents and friends who donate
their time to help out at the school. Many believe it's this
special kind of parental involvement that makes Anna Maria
Elementary an even better place to learn.

classroom-by-classroom scavenger hunt by the Sunshine Commit-

leading him to the next class, was given a tie and not just any
tie, but the ugliest ties the students could come up with. The only

The officer observed a woman in a car and a man stand-

found an outstanding warrant on the man.
Oct. 16, alcohol violation and possession of alcohol
by a minor, North Park. The officer observed 15 to 20
juveniles in the North Park, which was closed. As he ap-
proached, a juvenile walked away trying to conceal a beer
by placing it in a barbecue grill. The officer told the juve-
nile to stop, approached him and asked him his age.
The juvenile replied that he was 16, and the officer
told him he was under arrest and placed his hand on the
juvenile's arm. The juvenile began yelling at the officer


and attempted to yank his arm free. The officer hand-
cuffed the juvenile, issued a summons and released the
juvenile to the custody of his mother.
Oct. 19, possession of marijuana less than 20 grams,
Cortez Beach. The officer observed Tony N. Futch, 20, of
Sarasota, and Christopher P. Lewis, 22, of Bradenton,
standing by their car appearing very nervous. The officer
turned his vehicle around and drove by the pair again. He
observed that they kept looking at him and appeared even
more nervous. The officer stopped his vehicle and asked
the pair if there was a problem. He asked for their identi-
fication and performed a routine check.
While waiting for the check, the officer noticed a pack
of rolling papers and a pipe filled with marijuana between
the seats of the vehicle. He asked the pair what they were
doing there, and they told him they were rolling a joint.
Lewis also told the officer there was a quarter bag of
marijuana stuck in the door of their vehicle. He placed the
pair in custody. A presumptive test on the marijuana
proved positive.

What's ours is ours and what's yours is well...


By Bob Ardren
Outdoor perspectives
We'd better watch our step. There's a feud testing
between our good neighbors to the south, Longboat Key,
and their neighbor Sarasota.
And we just might be next.
The issue, at the moment, is the dredging of New
Pass. But since Longboat Pass is coming due for mainte-
nance dredging before long, perhaps we'd better watch
this one carefully.
Longboat Key has requested that the U.S. Army
Corps of Engineers delay the scheduled January dredging
of the pass, without bothering to tell the City of Sarasota
about it. It seems Longboat wants a couple of things.
Firstly, they want to build a rock revetment off the
southern tip of the Key to better protect the southerly prop-
erties on the Key.
Secondly, Longboat wants the Corps to realign the
channel into a more northeasterly-southwesterly angle
than the current east-west alignment Basically, it appears
the Longboat officials want the delay in the maintenance
dredging to allow the rock wall to be permitted and then
built.
Sarasota officials, now that they've found out about

the plan, are fearful a realignment of the channel will
cause far greater erosion on north Lido Key. They've said
they have no problem with the revetment as long as
doesn't impact Lido something they say the consult-
ants haven't been able to determine.
Of course, both municipalities have their own con-
sultants. Of course, they don't seem to agree.
Longboat Key's consultant, Applied Technology &
Management, Inc., has said that "if the federal navigation
channel is maintained at New Pass, then the south shore-
line of Longboat Key must be protected by the construc-
tion of an extension to the existing rock anchor groin -
and it is strongly recommended that the (Corps) delay the
maintenance dredging project until the groin extension is
complete."
And it all goes downhill from there.
Sarasota's consultant, Coastal Planning & Engineer-
ing, Inc., says the New Pass Inlet Management Plan "does
not include a channel realignment as a recommended el-
ement."
It also turns out that Longboat Key, and both the City
and County of Sarasota, are parties to an interlocal agree-
ment stating "The County and City agree not to object to
a proposed terminal groin at the southern end of Longboat
Key so long as (Longboat Key's) consultants confirm that
no material adverse effects will be experienced as a result

of the terminal groin."
And you guessed it, city officials say they aren't con-
vinced.
So last week the Sarasota City Commission formally
asked the Corps to immediately move ahead with plans
for the January dredging in a move they hoped would
shoot down Longboat's request for a realignment if the
Corps goes along with it
After all, nobody likes being blandished.
So now the whole thing is on the federal agency's
desk and, before it's over, there'll probably be a lawsuit.
With Longboat Key, there generally is.
So we'd better keep a sharp eye on plans for Longboat
Pass. Now that the Key has shown intentions to expand
to the south, who knows what direction they'll choose
next.
Now that fall is truly upon us, you can feel a real nip
in the early morning air. That also means the mullet are
beginning to school in preparation for their offshore
spawning runs coming up a little later.
So the fish markets are full of fresh, fat and cheap
mullet For a real treat, try this simplest of recipes.
Pick out some fresh-looking mullet and have the
market fillet and skin them for you. Back home, dip the
fillets in beaten egg laced with a little black pepper in
honor of cracker heritage. Then dip them in cracker
crumbs, or to be really authentic, in corn meal.
Saut6 quickly until they just flake, and serve with
potato salad and a fresh vegetable such as our Ruskin-
grown spinach queen of greens.
It's a feast, and an affordable one as mullet are going
for well under a dollar a pound at the moment.

It was a good week for grouper


By Capt. Mike Heistand
It's the time of year when almost everything seems to
be biting: mackerel and jack offshore, snook and redfish
in the backwater, and sheepshead starting to show up
around the piers.
Offshore action continues to improve on the Miss
Cortez Fishing Fleet. Ruth said the half-day trips aver-
age 130 head of Key West grunts, big porgies, triggerfish
and small grouper unfortunately, too small to keep. The
six-hour trip averaged 250 head of vermilion, lane and
yellowtail snapper, as well as grunts, porgies and red grou-
per. The all-day trip is bringing in keeper mangrove and
yellowtail snapper and grouper.
Expect a mixed bag at the Bradenton Beach Pier: Tom
said big flounder, some nice evening redfish, a 24-inch black
drum, a few grouper and some small snook are there for the
catching. There was even a tarpon caught off the pier last
week, but the big fish snapped the line and got away.


Biggest of the
group-er
Jim Howze, age 14, from
Tampa, has to work to
hold up his prize catch, a
red grouper, that he
caught while fishing with
Captain Phil Shields on
the charter boat Reef
Reacher.

Gator troubles, cor
Florida's endangered crocodile population is booming
too. The good news is they're all in far south Florida.
Nobody is sure if there's a connection, but the state's
estimated 500 adult crocodiles were in the direct path of
Hurricane Andrew 14 months ago. This year they pro-
duced a record number of nests and hatchlings.


ntinued from page 22
"A disaster triggers this. It's kind of a response to
survival," says Frank Mazzotti, a University of Florida
crocodile researcher who claims to understand the critters.
Myself, I just hope they stay in Everglades National
Park and North Key Largo where they belong.
See you next week.


Capt. Dave Pinkham with Gulf to Bay Charters was
able to get his clients onto a 75-pound black tip shark Oct
23. Capt. Dave is bringing back some big mackerel, and
lots of 'em, too 40 out of 50 are being landed, with
about half of them eventually released.
Lots of jack are the report at the Anna Maria City
Pier. Dave said that some keeper reds and a few flounder
are also coming to the lures, but said that cloudy water is
hampering the catches.
Capt Zack on the Dee Jay H is looking for good snook
action after last week's rain. All sizes of reds are still around
for his charters, as well as some beautiful 25-inchtrout Harry
Pratt and Dan Blalock of Bradenton brought back their limit
of 30-inch snook last Wednesday, as well as reds and trout.
When the weather permits, Capt Zack is bringing back
boatfulls of Spanish mackerel, cobia, snapper, shark and some
tackle-busting jack crevalle offshore.
Lots of small snook and lots of big mackerel are the
hot action at the Rod and Reel Pier in Anna Maria. Kevin
said that a couple of redfish, as well as black drum and
flounder are all coming in to anglers at the pier. And Kevin
said that sheepshead are starting to congregate as well.
Capt. Phil Shields has been going offshore and re-
ports 60-pound amberjack are being boated about 30
miles out he's also doing well with dolphin in the 12- to
15-pound range, as well as some 15-pound red grouper.
You say there aren't any snook out there? Capt. Rick
Gross will say you're wrong he's been able to get his
charters onto snook to fill their limits last week.
Capt Tom Chaya is bringing back as many mackerel
as his clients can catch in the Gulf, with most in the four-pound
range. In the backwater, he's still doing good with reds.
Reds and snook are coming on strong for Capt. Todd
Romine, who's been able to put his anglers onto some big
ones in both varieties.
Trout are the hot tip from Capt. Mark Bradow. He's
been able to get into some 25-inch trout in the past few
days. For variety, he suggests going offshore to either the
one- or three-mile reefs for mackerel.
Capt Mike Banyas has been able to bring in the limit
on snook for his happy anglers, as well as a bunch of reds.
And on my boat, I've been offshore doing well with
mangrove snapper up to five pounds, yellowtail snapper up
to three pounds, as well as some 10-pound red and black grou-
per. Our best catch was a 22-inch mangrovesnapper, although
I was able to get a charter onto some large cobia.
Good luck and good fishing.

Everything you always wanted to know


about mangrove trimming


By Pat Copeland
Islander Reporter
Property owners need to be well versed in the state's
multitude of complex, mangrove trimming regulations
well before taking clippers to their trees.
To aid property owners in wading through the 26
pages of regulations, representatives of the state Depart-
ment of Environmental Protection (DEP) gave a seminar
at the Anna Maria Island Community Center Friday. The
seminar was conducted by Mark Peterson, staff biologist
with the DEP.
Peterson said the regulations evolved from the state's
concern about the mangrove's contribution to the ecosys-
tem including providing roosting habitat for birds and
leaves that fall into the water as food for aquatic life.
The five types of regulations are activities not regu-
lated or selective trimming, exemptions, exemptions with
entitlement, general permit and individual permit

General information for all
regulations
Tampa Bay and Sarasota Bay are designated as
Outstanding Florida Waters (OFW), and all of the Island's
shoreline touched by those waters must adhere to the regu-
lations for OFW.
Man made canals are not considered OFW, and
most canals on the Island were excavated from historic
wetlands, not uplands.
The only aquatic preserve in Manatee County is
Terra Ceia Bay
All trimmed mangrove material must be deposited
on upland. If this material is deposited in the mangroves,
it is considered filling a wetland, and a dredge and fill
permit is required.
No permits are issued for removal of mangroves that
recruit seed themselves. These can only be removed
with a dredge and fill permit

Island ferry better idea than bridge
There are a number of us who think DOT money would
be best served by a ferry system for the Island community.
Maintain the present bridges as they are, meanwhile
spark up a new industry which the local marine commu-
nity could operate and benefit from. Ferry systems work
elsewhere and add charm as well as revenue.
Most Islanders favor quaint over quick, and, as this
is a tourist spot with beautiful beaches, we don't want our
Island full of ugly, fast roads and bridges.
Also, money will be saved by opening and/or closing
the bridge less often.
In closing, no one will ever agree about the bridge;
we're wasting time and money arguing about the issue. As
barrier Island residents, we know the dangers and accept
the ever-present possibility of being completely wiped
out. We feel we have a right to shun big, expensive
bridges and preserve our Island personality.

Bridge safety
Contrary to the error-filled "Bridge Concerns" article
in The Bradenton Herald, Oct. 25, the following facts are
offered for the record.
The U. S. Coast Guard does not mandate a 65-foot
clearance bridge. For our area, it recommends a 21-bascule
bridge.
Bob Sheets, director of the national weather service,
states: "... the lower you can build your bridges where they
still clear all other hazards such as storm surge or shipping,
the more likely they are to stay open during high wind events."
The state Department of Environmental Protection is
withholding permit from the Department of Transportation
because of safety concerns. DEP recommends a safety study.

The Island Poet
Why go around with a long face that seems
so full of sorrow,
When you have no guarantee that you will be
around tomorrow.
For the smile you give to someone will
brighten your own face,
And the happiness you spread will make the
world a better place.
If you reach down to those less fortunate than
you,
I am sure good things will come to you.
So get rid of that frozen look, your troubles
can't be that bad,
And wear a smile upon your face and make
us all feel glad.
Bud Atteridge
