Council upholds planners on A-1 motel density


By Pat Copeland
Islander Reporter
Despite last minute protests from the Anna Maria
Island Chamber of Commerce and the A-1 district hote-
liers, the Holmes Beach City Council voted to uphold the
planning commission's recommendation on hotel/motel
density in the district last week.
Three weeks ago, the planning commission voted that
it was the intent of the comprehensive plan to limit hotels
and motels in the A-1 district to 10 units per acre. They
further recommended that the city attorney be directed to
make changes in the land development code to clarify that
position.
In its letter, the Chamber asked the council not to vote
on the matter but send it back to the planning commission
allowing for more input from A-1 district hoteliers.
The letter from A-1 district hoteliers urged the coun-
cil to consider a density of 28 to 30 hotel/motel units to
be classified as commercial hotel/motel in the A-1 district.


Council was not receptive to the last minute requests.
Councilwoman Carol Whitmore responded, "I don't
appreciate being passed these letters right before the dis-
cussion. It would have been fair to get these in our mail
boxes today or before the meeting so we could read them.
The planning commission met at 3 p.m. today, and they
should have gotten the letters too.
Councilwoman Mary Ellen Reichard said the issue
was not a density increase but a clarification of the lan-
guage in the code. She said hoteliers would have to file a
comprehensive plan amendment in order to increase den-
sity.
Council Chairman Don Howard, who passed the
gavel to Vice Chairman Rich Bohnenberger for the dis-
cussion, retorted, "It's a terrible shame that the hoteliers
in A-1 had to go out and hire an attorney to try and pro-
tect our own city against itself. Whatever the intent was
five years ago, the subject of the intent has outgrown it-
self. There's a loophole in the wording of the intent big

Public Beach reopened Purcifield operates Cafe on the Beach, the restaurant at the beach, and she said
County Commissioner Kent Chetlain came to breakfast on Sunday morning and was surprised to see the pier
still closed He got on the phone and confirmed that the pier barricades should have been taken down earlier
in the week, and then instructed the lifeguards to remove them. Thanks to Chetlain, a record number of people
visiting the popular dining spot on Sunday were able to stroll out the pier, fish, and enjoy an even closer view
of the spectacular sunset.



Island ringmasters will open

circus Monday night


For the second year, the winner of the Island schools'
student coloring contest will officially open the circus.
Students in all age groups at the School for Construc-
tive Play in Anna Maria and at the Anna Maria Elemen-
tary School colored elephant pictures supplied by spon-
sors, The Islander Bystander and Alan C. Hill's Great
American Circus. A winner in every age group and grade
will receive a family pass to the circus.
The grand prize winner, honorary ringmaster for the
first performance at 5:30 p.m., is Megan Kyzer of Mrs.
Davis' fourth grade class.
The contest was judged by Sarah Nicholas of Holmes
Beach, Anna Maria Commissioner Dorothy McChesney
and Bren Jackson, owner of Phoenix Frame.
Ringmaster for the second performance at 7:45 p.m.
is The Islander Bystander's student reporter, Katharine
Wight, a seventh grade student at King Middle School and
a resident of Holmes Beach.


The tent will be raised on Monday, Feb. 28, at 8 am.
on the grounds of the Holmes Beach City Hall. Children
of all ages are invited to watch Irene the elephant and the
tent crew join forces and pull together the 220-foot by 100-
foot big top.
The circus is a benefit for the Anna Maria Island
Community Center. They receive a portion of advance
ticket proceeds and a percentage of the gate on show day.
Adult tickets are $8 in advance and $12 day of show.
Coupons available from area merchants admit children 12
and under at no charge wnen accompanied by a paying
adult
The annual event takes place on Monday, Feb. 28. It's
a rare opportunity to see elephants and fire breathers on
the Island. Feats of daring include a father-daughter aerial
act new this year and only performed in public twice
prior to the Anna Maria show by circus owner Alan
Hill and his 13-year-old daughter, Heather.


enough to put a Holiday Inn through and that scares ev-
erybody."
Howard said the language is ripe for challenge unless
there is justification of the limitation on the number of
hotel units.
Betty Hill, former city clerk, said the density in tht
district has been reduced through the years from 36 to 24
to 16 to 10 units per acre.
"As the Island properties became more expensive, the
council felt that anybody could build at that density and
still make money," explained Hill.
City attorney Patricia Petruff said anyone aggrieved
by the council's decision has three options for change -
a comprehensive plan amendment initiated by a citizen or
the council or a change through the planning
commission's state mandated review of the plan. Petruff
said all three methods require a review by the planning
commission, two public hearings and a review by the state
Department of Community Affairs.


Cortez Bridge

repair hearing

set March 8
Islanders will be given the chance to speak on the two
options proposed by Florida Department of Transportation
officials on repair work for the Cortez Bridge March 8.
The DOT will hold a public informational hearing at the
St Bernard Catholic Church, 248 Harbor Dr., Holmes Beach
from 5-8 p.m. on the plans to repair the bridge next year.
DOT officials have offered two options to conduct the
$2 million to $3 million repair work:
Close the bridge between midnight and 6 a.m. for
about 25 weeks, have one-lane traffic only during daytime
hours, and have total construction take about 31 weeks, or
Close the bridge completely to vehicular traffic for
20 to 40 days, and have construction take place for 26
weeks.
Another big question besides which option to choose
is when, if at all, total bridge closure would take place.
Most comments to date have favored the total closure, but
business owners are fearful the closure will adversely
impact their establishments unless the work is done be-
tween Thanksgiving and Christmas.
DOT officials hope to start work next February.

Business owners take issue with fines


By Pat Copeland
Islander Reporter
Jim and Kathy Gloth, owners of Island Foods, ob-
jected to a news story last week concerning unpaid fire
alarm penalties.
At a December hearing of the Holmes Beach
Code Enforcement Board, the Gloths protested what
they felt were excessive fines, and the board reduced
the fines from $4.275 to $1,875, payable within 30
days.
"I'm very visibly upset about the article," said Jim
Gloth. "The Islander Bystander had two articles
(about the fines) and quoted several people, but we
were not given an opportunity to express our feelings.
We sent our check in on Feb. 10, but no one called to
find out if we had paid."
At a board hearing Feb. 11, Public Works Superin-
tendent John Femandez said the fines had not been paid
and the board imposed an additional $250 per day fine.
False alarm fines in Holmes Beach begin after a
third violation. The fines are as follows: third viola-
tion, $25; fourth violation, $50; fifth violation, $100;
sixth violation, $200; seventh violation, $300; eighth
and any subsequent violations within a 12-month pe-
riod, $400.


Gloth said high fines for false alarm calls reflect an
anti-small business attitude of some members of the
city council. He said such fines and additional penal-
ties are enough to drive some small businesses out of
business. Gloth feels other local municipalities have
more reasonable fine structures.
"What's come out of this is a lot more positive,"
noted Gloth. "I can't believe the number of people who
have come in to support us, and many have the same
stories about the anti-small business attitude. There is
a group of small business owners on the Island who are
going to work through the Anna Maria Island Cham-
ber of Commerce to counteract this attitude."
Gloth maintained that in a small community such
as this, the business owners, the city councils, and the
residents should work together for the betterment of the
community. He said more attention should be paid to
positive situations such as beautification efforts and
getting bike paths for the Island.
"The councils should join with us to make this a
better place to live," said Gloth, "and be more recep-
tive to small business persons. There's way too much
negativity it spreads like a cancer. The newspaper
should accent the positive more and not always put
negative stories on the front page."


No news on Anna Maria Bridge front


"We're in limbo."
That's the status report from the two state agencies
embroiled in a dispute on construction of a replacement
structure for the Anna Maria Bridge.
Florida Department of Environmental Protection of-
ficials have refused to issue a permit to the Florida Depart-
ment of Transportation to construct a 65-foot-high, fixed-
span bridge to the Island, citing adverse environmental
damage.
DOT officials want to build the new big bridge south
of the existing structure; DEP has said the southern align-
ment is definitely out, but they may consider issuing a
permit if the bridge were located to the north.
In a meeting on the bridge in December, DEP's Dr.
Richard Garrity said he wanted information from the
Florida Marine Patrol and the U.S. Coast Guard on im-


pacts the new bridge would have on the channel leading
to Perico Harbor Marina. That data is still pending, caus-
ing the state of limbo, according to DEP's George
Craciun.
DOT's David May said building the bridge to the
north would impact both the channel and parking at
Leverock's Seafood House restaurant He has said that his
agency would fight the northern alignment plan outlined
by the DEP.
The maneuvering appears to have deadlocked the two
agencies, and will probably force them into an adminis-
trative hearing once DEP denies permits for the bridge.
If that happens and most agree itis inevitable -then
both sides get to state their cases before a hearing officer.
Craciun said he expected to have information regard-
ing the channel by early March.

Mayor appoints

assistant for

Sandbar case
By Jeannie Friedman
Islander Reporter
Anna Maria has a newly appointed code enforcement
officer who will be responsible for overseeing the city's
proceedings with the Sandbar Restaurant over alleged
encroachments on city property.
Mayor Ray Simches appointedpublic works administra-
tive assistant, Anne Beck, to the new position after Dan
Tarantola asked to be excused from all activities regarding the
restaurant due to what he perceives as a conflict of interest.
Tarantola, the city's code enforcement officer and
director of public works, made the request because his
wife recently became an employee of the Sandbar.
In a memo dated Feb. 15, Simches informed Beck of
the appointment and advised her that she would be respon-
sible for "entertaining code enforcement proceedings re-
garding the W.E.L.D., Inc., encroachment matter." Ed
Chiles is the president of W.E.L.D, Inc., the corporation
which owns the Sandbar.
Chiles was first informed last November that several
structures and pieces of equipment belonging to the res-
taurant were encroaching on a city right of way on the
northwest side of Spring Avenue. Edwin.Callen, acting
code enforcement officer at that time, also informed
Chiles that building permits had been improperly issued
for improvements to the restaurant.
According to the city, the encroachments include: a
freezer which encroaches eight feet onto the right of way
and a smoker which encroaches four feet A dumpster and
pad, two fences, several planters and a boat also infringe
on the right of way.
Callen's original letter said proper procedure was not
followed when permits were issued for the installation of
a cement pad and a fence. No permits were issued or re-
quests made for the placement of the freezer or smoker.
After Tarantola became code enforcement officer, he
granted Chiles a postponement which expired on Feb. 11.
Chiles has now asked for a further extension.
Anne Beck told the Islander Bystander last Friday she
was in the process of granting an additional extension for 30
more days. The latest postponement will expirein mid-March.

Brothers tussle with Holmes Beach police


By Pat Copeland
Islander Reporter
Whatcha gonna do when they come for you?
Transient brothers Aaron and Robert Kozmits, 20 and
22, respectively, decided to put up a heck of a fight. It was
losing battle for the brothers, but they managed to leave
two injured Holmes Beach police officers and two dam-
aged patrol cars in their wake.
Holmes Beach Officer Rick Pentecost sustained a
broken leg and Holmes Beach Officer Rob Velardi sus-
tained facial injuries in the melee, but the consequences

Sale final on


Bean Point lot
After a lengthy delay, the sale of the property at 825
North Shore Dr. has finally closed.
Norman and Cynthia Mansour of Tampa purchased
the lot and plan to build a single family house on the prop-
erty in the near future.
The Gulf-front property is part of a seven-acre unde-
veloped tract of land located adjacent to Bean Point on the
Northern most point of Anna Maria Island. The remain-
ing property is slated to be offered for sale at a public
auction in early March

... and new owners
remove trees
The new owner of a lot at Bean Point in Anna Maria
has offered to remove pestilent trees from property owned
by the city of Anna Maria at no charge.
Norman Mansour ofTampa recently purchased alot on
North Shore Drive adjacent to property owned by the city.
Mansourtold cityofficials he has contracted to have nuisance
vegetation removed from his property and said he is willing
to pay his contractor to remove Brazilian pepper trees from
the unimproved city property at the same time.
The city building department was notified last week
that Norman and Cynthia Mansour purchased the lot and
will begin clearing in.the near future.


could have been much worse, said Holmes Beach SgL
Dale Stephenson.
In a report to the city council, Stephenson said two
things kept the incident from becoming a tragedy the
new 800 MHz radio system and the use of pepper spray
by the officers.
"The 800 system worked to perfection," explained
Stephenson. "There would have been a problem contact-
ing the sheriff's department with our old system. There
would have been a lag time going from our dispatchers to
the sheriff s office in town to the unit out here to get him
down there.
"Also, the pepper spray was an excellent tool to use
that we didn't have previously. It gives us one more step
in a force continuum to try and de-escalate situations, and
worked great."
The incident began when Holmes Beach officers re-
sponded to the report of a disturbance at the Trade Winds
apartments, 1603 Gulf Drive, Bradenton Beach, because
Bradenton Beach officers were responding to another call.
Velardi notedin his report thatitwas the second response
to the same address. In the first, he had told Aaron Kozmits
to turn down a loud radio that was bothering a neighbor.
The second time Velardi arrived at Unit 18, he found
Aaron Kozmits on the floor passed out He noticed sub-
jects running from the area as he arrived.
Velardi awoke Aaron Kozmits, who was uncoopera-
tive but did produce his Florida identification card. As
Velardi was copying personal information from the card,
Aaron Kozmits demanded the card back and then lunged
at Velardi, hitting him in the lower jaw/upper neck area.
Pentecost and Sgt. Jim Tillner of the Manatee County
Sheriff's Department arrived and the three brought Aaron
Kozmits who was resisting violently to the floor,
handcuffed him and took him toward the patrol vehicle,
where he began resisting again.
Robert Kozmits then jumped in and began fighting
with the officers. Velardi pulled Aaron Kozmits away and
he fell against the rear of the patrol vehicle while strug-
gling and appeared to pass out. Pentecost and Tillner were
struggling to arrest Robert Kozmits.
Velardi heard Pentecost hit against the apartment and


yell that he thought his leg was broken. Velardi went to
assist Penetcost and called for backup and EMS to re-
spond. Velardi and Tillner handcuffed Robert Kozmits,
who had been sprayed with pepper spray by Pentecost,
and placed him in a patrol car.
Aaron Kozmits then got up from the ground and ran.
As Velardi was searching for him, he came at Velardi, and
threw a large object at the patrol vehicle, breaking the
window. Aaron Kozmits then kicked Velardi in the face
and brought his handcuffs toward Velardi's head. Velardi
sprayed Aaron Kozmits with pepper spray and Aaron
Kozmits fled the scene.
Backup units arrived on the scene, one with a police
dog. Velardi spotted Aaron Kozmits and the canine was
released after him and caught him. Before being caught,
Aaron Kozmits threw a large rock through the window of
a sheriff s department vehicle.
Robert Kozmits tried to kick out the rear door of the pa-
trol car and was restrained with his hands manacled to his feet.
Aaron Kozmits was charged with two counts of bat-
tery on a police officer, criminal mischief, escape and
resisting with violence.
Robert Kozmits was charged with aggravated battery,
battery on a police officer, resisting with violence and
criminal mischief.

By Paul Roat
Anna Maria Island appears to have
united under a common front Keep Katie
Pierola on the regional transportation advi-
sory board, the MetropolitanPlanning Orga-
nization.
Joe McClash's wishes be damned.
McClash, as chair of the MPO, wrote
a letter to Pierola stating recent changes in
the Florida Statutes made her presence on
the MPO illegal because she is serving
more than a 12-month term. His letter
stated he expected to see a new member
serve on the MPO, preferably from
Holmes Beach. McClash included a letter
from MPO attorney Elizabeth Woodford
explaining the problem.
Florida law has declared that a rota-
tion of membership by municipalities an-
nually take place on MPO boards. The
problem with Woodford's opinion is that
Pierola does not represent a city on the
MPO she represents an organization
called the Island Transportation Planning
Organization which has, as its members,
the three mayors from Anna Maria Island.
It's a fine distinction, but a clear dis-
tinction that has attorneys from all three
cities on the Island in accord.
Ironically, the Island's former MPO
member, George McKay, served from
1990 to 1992.
"It is my understanding that the ac-
tual member of the MPO is the legal en-
tity known as the Island Transportation


Planning Organization and not each of the
respective cities," Bradenton Beach City
Attorney Alan Prather said. "This would
appear to be the understanding of the
MPO, though they seem to have forgotten
it at this time, since they have drafted their
Standard Interlocal Agreement to show
membership by the ITPO and not the cit-
ies."
Anna Maria and Holmes Beach attor-
neys have reached the same opinion.
ITPO members agreed to submit a
letter including correspondence from the
three attorneys outlining the opinion that
Pierola should retain her seat on the MPO.
The MPO meets Monday at Sudacoff
Center on the New College/University of
South Florida campus in Sarasota. The
meeting begins at 9:30 a.m.
"It will be interesting to see if there's
a police officer there to try to stop you
from voting," Prather said to Pierola. He
said there are several options available to
resolve the legal dilemma: the MPO mem-
bership can say they made a mistake and
allow Pierola to remain a voting member,
the Florida Department of Transportation
can issue a ruling, the Attorney General's
office can issue a ruling, or the matter can
wind up in a court of law.
"I hope that the reasonable and intel-
ligent members who represent the MPO
would want to avoid any of us having to
pay lawyers to fight a lawsuit that is trivial
to all of us," Prather said.


... and individual membership

requested for all Island cities


Why don't the three Island cities have
individual representation on the Metro-
politan Planning Organization?
That question has been raised again and
again most recently, by Bob
VanWagoner and the other members of the
Citizen Advisory Committee to the Island
Transportation Planning Organization.
"It is the desire of each of our cities
now to have its own membership, since
transportation decisions are being made
which impact our municipalities more
than any others in the urbanized district,"
VanWagoner and the CAC had said in a
recommendation to the ITPO.
"We petition the MPO and the gov-
ernor to begin this process. We shall con-
tinue the ITPO procedure until our new
individual memberships are enacted," he
concluded.
Membership in the Manatee-Sarasota
County regional transportation planning
group includes 15 members: three commis-
sioners from Manatee County, three com-
missioners from Sarasota County, two com-
missioners from Sarasota City, and one rep-


resentative from Palmetto, Bradenton,
Longboat Key, Venice and North Port. One
member represents the three Island cities on
AnnaMaria.
There is also a non-voting member
representing the Sarasota-Bradenton Air-
port Authority.
MPO Executive Director Mike Guy has
said the board legally is to be divided by
population, with equal weight to be given
municipalities and county officers. The board
already is heavily weighted toward cities,
Guy has said, and the group would be tilted
too much toward municipalities if the three
Island cities were to receive separate mem-
bership.
Holmes Beach has requested mem-
bership on the MPO, which has been de-
nied. That request will be made to Gov.
Lawton Chiles next week, Mayor Pat
Geyer said.
Although Bradenton Beach Mayor
Katie Pierola and Anna Maria Mayor Ray
Simches have indicated a desire to have
separate memberships, they have taken no
official action to date.

Settlement possible

in Bliss case


By Pat Copeland
Islander Reporter
Upon the advice of their attorney,
Anna Maria Fire Commissioners voted to
hold a closed session Feb. 21 to discuss
settlement of a lawsuit with Glenn Bliss,
the district's former chief and a current
commissioner.
Bliss filed a workman's compensa-
tion claim against the district nearly two
years ago over a knee injury he sustained
while on the scene of an accident in 1988.
Bliss had an artificial knee replacement
14 months after the accident. At the time
of the accident, the district's workman's
compensation had lapsed.
Judge of Compensation Claims Jo-
seph E. Willis found that although Bliss
had prior problems with his knee, it was
his physician's opinion that the accident
aggravated the knee condition and accel-
erated the need for a knee replacement.
Willis noted that under the Florida
Worker's Compensation Act, treatment
for a medical condition is the responsibil-
ity of the employer in such cases.
Willis ordered the following:
The fire district is responsible for
the balance of any unpaid medical bills


and reimbursement to Bliss for any out of
pocket medical payments made by Bliss
for medical treatment related to the acci-
dent. Most of the past medical bills have
been paid from various sources.
The fire district is responsible for pro-
viding future medical care as reasonable and
necessary as a result of the accident
The fire district shall pay wage loss
benefits to Bliss for the period from Nov.
21, 1991, through Sept. 13, 1993. The
district is to receive credit for any wages
or unemployment benefits earned by
Bliss during that period.
Bliss is awarded the taxable reim-
bursable costs of the proceeding.
Jurisdiction is reserved on the sub-
ject of an attorney fee.
The district's attorney Richard Groff
noted in his letter to the board, "'The uncer-
tainty of the future, both for the district and
Mr. Bliss, often results in a settlement Such
settlements can benefit the employer, who
may forestall significant future costs, and
benefit the employee, who may be entitled
to no future benefits."
Settlement discussions can be held in
closed session, pursuant to Section
286.011 (8), Florida Statutes, said Groff.

'Shore War' eyes

Anna Maria

as possible

battlefield
The battlefield of Sarasota County's "Shore War"
may be moving north to the waters off Anna Maria Island.
The City of Venice is trying to renourish its badly-
eroding beach. Their area of beach does not have enough
or the right kind of offshore sand about 2,000,000 cu-
bic yards is needed so Venice, state and federal offi-
cials decided to "borrow" sand from a huge sandbar north-
east of Siesta Key, near Big Pass.
Siesta Key residents claim the sandbar protects their
island from erosion and are trying to block the Venice
renourishment project. They say other sand sources exist
- and the one mentioned most is a nice large area of sand,
a sandbar just off Egmont Key.
We admit that an offshore sandbar at Egmont Key
may not do a great deal to protect Anna Maria Island from
the ravages of erosion, the idea of taking sand that close
to us is just a little too close for comfort. The fact that state
and federal permits have been issued to take sand for
Venice from Siesta Key is also disconcerting.
And it sets a dangerous precedent the idea of "bor-
rowing" sand from areas distant from eroding shores.
Consider Siesta Key for a moment The sand on their
beaches is arguably the "cleanest, whitest sand in the world"
- at least that's what their chamber of commerce said after
winning a much-ballyhooed contest a few years ago.
The sand there is fine, soft and very white. Venice
sand, on the other hand, is generally course and very dark.
Of course Venice would like the same beautiful beaches
Siesta Key has so why not take their sand?
Anna Maria Island has a similar tale to tell about sand.
Our beach has performed admirably during storms since
it was re-nourished. It protected the Island property dur-
ing serious storm threats it's a proven commodity.
If the Venice versds Siesta Key dispute is any indi-
cation, &dbnties and cities from far, far away could decide
that Anna Maria Island's offshore sand it just what they
need for their own beaches. So sand just off our shores
could be used for other beach nourishment projects in, say,
Clearwater. Or Sanibel.Or Galveston.
If a beach nourishment project is to take place, it only
seems reasonable to take the sand from the immediate:
offshore area- not points many miles away.

AIDS is not a gay-only
disease
I enjoyed the Islander Bystander's first report on
AIDS. The second article is typical of how some people
really feel.
I lived in Bradenton Beach for the past eight years and
now reside in Cortez. Last year my brother Joel died from
AIDS. It was hard to believe my brother was dying, but
nevertheless we invited him to come here and spend his
remaining time in the sun. After I found out about my
brother having AIDS, I looked for help. Unfortunately
there was nothing available on the Island.
I have found there are wonderful places with very
caring and helpful people in Sarasota. AIDS Manasota is
a wonderful organization. Sarasota AIDS Support, S.A.S.,
has weekly talk sessions for family members of people
with AIDS. When I joined I was the sixth person from
Anna Maria. So there are probably those who don't know
about the meetings or don't want to go. It would be nice
if there was one on Anna Maria.
This disease does not only affect gay people. My
brother was a white middle class, straight, Jewish male
who did not shoot drugs. He got AIDS from unprotected
sex with a female!
Two weeks ago I gave his quilt panel to join the many
others at Manatee Community College. It was an over-
whelming sight.
Ilene Johnson, Cortez

Equal rights for all
A local newspaper is valuable to the citizens of the
town where it is published, especially when it provides


accurate and important information. In last week's issue
(February 17th) Jeannie Friedman's story on page 5 "Cur-
rent Rights Special or Equal for Gays and Lesbians" pro-
vided that service for me.
I have been permanent resident of AnnaMaria Island
since 1987. Ipay taxes here. I was stunned when I came out
of the Voting place on Tuesday, February 8, and saw the
woman from the American Family Political Committee of
Florida setting upherbooth, her large print signs, ilhemessage
clear-stop homosexuals. Friedman's article seems a fair
account of this event and I was grateful to read it
I now know why the woman was not around when I went
by to disagree with her. The booth was not manned; she set
up, left her petitions and was not available for comment.
Although this group uses the code word "family" in its
official title, there is nothing family-like about its petition.
As Friedman reports, the AF group wants this amend-
ment "because they perceive the gay community is now
entitled to special rights." I disagree. I believe the present
Florida constitution grants equal rights to all persons. This
petition represents discrimination, bigotry.
It was also helpful to read about the results of a simi-
lar amendment passed in the state of Colorado in 1992.
Speaking of bigotry, which comes out of fear andigno-
rance, and often ends in hatred and violence, I would like to
comment on the article, second in a series on AIDS, by Rick
Fleury, which appears immediately above the constitutional
amendment story "with a little Irish luck..."
I have an Italian name because I married it, but I have
Irish cousins still living near Dublin, and my grandparents
came to the United States from County Cavan, near the
border of Northern Ireland, where the troubles are. Mr.
Moran, a native of Dublin and a visitor eager to have his
opinion published is not like a leprechaun to me.
Making gay and lesbian persons out to be criminals
is homophobic. It reminds me of how our white Anglo-
Saxon Christian forefathers and sisters treated persons of
a different skin color; they hung them in trees. It's called
lynching.
I hope it is not too long before Mr. Moran takes him-
self and his bitter opinion back to the Emerald Isle.
Perhaps next time he visits this country, he might try
Philadelphia.

TfSE WERE THE BAYS
Part 2, Anna Maria in the Movies
by June Alder


In 1920 actor Paul Gilmore set out to turn the sleepy West View settlement on Anna
Maria Island into a glamourous movie colony.


THE GILMORES

AT HOME


Paul Gilmore and Mrs. Gilmore were
visitors in Bradenton while spending time
at their home on Anna Maria Key.
Mr. Gilmore is moreenthusiastic than
ever about the possibility of starting a
moving picture studio at Anna Maria Key
and from now on will devote most of his
time to perfecting his plans. Mr. Gilmore
Said as soon as the bridge was started he.
would begin his preparation on the island.
Sunday he spent some time with an engi-
neer making plans to re-subdivide the is-
land and will widen some of the streets
that are laid out and will make the main
thoroughfare one of the most attractive'
streets in any motion picture city.
Mr. Gilmore said that Florida was
destined to become the moving picture
center of the nation. Mr. Gilmore stated
what D.W. Griffith, the pioneer movie
magnate of the world said in an interview
in Dallas the other day when passing
through there. Some of the leading busi-
nessmen asked him why Texas would not
do for the motion picture industry and Mr.
Griffith told them that while he did not
want to hurt their feelings, he thought
Texas was impracticable because of the
climate and atmospheric conditions.
He further said that California has
been "shot to pieces" and Florida presents
a virgin field that has heretofore been ne-
glected but is fast coming to the front.
With the largest picture manufactur-
ers in the world turning their eyes towards
Florida it behooves Bradentown and
Manatee County to prepare for the migra-
tion when it does come.
A bridge to Anna Maria and a chain
of good roads over the county giving easy
access to all of the beaches and points of
interest in the county will do more to land
us our share of the picture business than all
of the yelling and sending of the delega-
tions to confer with picture people that we
can do.


Manatee River Journal, Dec. 1,
1921

It was in 1920 that an itinerant actor
by the name of Paul Gilmore, who had
been appearing with stage companies
traveling through Florida for years, fell in
love with Anna Maria Island. He became
convinced that it would be an ideal place
to make motion pictures.
Gilmore had already had a fling at
movie production when he and a partner
set up a studio in Tampa. But the venture
was a flop, so Gilmore resumed touring
in his stage show.
There was a small colony of cottages
way down on the extreme southern end of
the Island-its first subdivision. ATampan
named Frank Palmer had platted it in 1905
" and called it West View. For the most part
West View served as a summer resort for
well-to-do Tampans in the prosperous first
decade of the 20th century.
Gilmore scraped up the money to
buy the land, along with a dozen or so
houses, abayside dock, a beach pavilion
and a water slide on it, right after the
Great War. He changed the name to Gil-
Mor Isles, renamed the few sandy streets
after screen stars and began to promote it
as a movie colony.
But there was no bridge to the Island
of any kind just a ferry that you had to
holler for to get to and fro. Gilmore's real
estate venture was in trouble by 1919.
Then came a piece of luck. He was
offered a leading role in a movie to be
produced by Character Films of New
York City. Gilmore jumped at the
chance. He foresaw not only the revival
of his career, but a made-to-order oppor-
tunity to put his Island resort on the map.

Commissioner Max Znika is the number one choice
of newly re-elected Mayor Ray Simches to fill the posi-
tion of vice mayor of Anna Maria City.
Simches announced at last week's city work session
that he would like Znika to serve as his assistant. If the
commission approves the nomination, Znika will replace
Doug Wolfe in the position.
When Wolfe was appointed to serve as the city's
second in command last year, Simches announced his
intention to rotate the vice mayoral position yearly so that
different commissioners could gain administrative expe-
rience.
Znika was re-elected on Feb. 8 to serve a third term.


During his tenure, he has been the commissioner responsible
for city property and equipment, contracts, franchises, insur-
ance, leases and recycling and has served as the city's liason
to the community center and Island Players.
"I don't expect anything to change if I am the vice
mayor," he said. "The only difference is that I'll act as
mayor when the mayor is out of town."
During the recent election campaign, Znika said he
"will continue to be a full-time commissioner." He also
promised to continue to work on ways to save the city and
its residents money.
The commission was expected to accept the mayor's
recommendation and vote in favor of Znika's appointment

Islander Reporter
Don Howard's appeal concerning the addition of eight
units to his Island Plantation Resort at 7300 Gulf Dr. was shut
down by the Holmes Beach City Council Thursday.
The permit application for the units was reviewed by
Superintendent of Public Works John Fernandez last
week. Fernandez noted in his letter of reply to the project
contractor, Whitehead Construction, that the number of
units allowed in the A-l district is 10 per acre.
"The proposed drawings you submitted to me added
eight units within the existing building," wrote
Fernandez. "This would then make a total of 30 units on
1.17 acres of land, thus exceeding the density limitations
in the A-1 district. I would deny a permit for these addi-
tional units based on this factor."
Brent Whitehead then requested an appeal to coun-
cil of Fernandez's interpretation of the district regula-
tions.
Councilwoman Carol Whitmore maintained that the
appeal was not appropriate after the council's vote on
Feb. 15 that the intent of the comprehensive plan was to


limit motels in the district to 10 units per acre.
Councilwoman Mary Ellen Reichard said the correct
process is for Howard to exercise one of three options
given by the city attorney at the Feb. 15 meeting.
Whitehead said a provision in the code provides for
an appeal to the council of the building official's interpre-
tation of the code.
Reichard said the Feb. 15 vote shows that "we are in
agreement with the way he (Fernandez) has been inter-
preting it (the code)."
Resident Lee Edwards cautioned council, "Read the
letter carefully. Mr. Fernandez denied the permit because
the plans were not sufficient Then he gave you an opin-
ion on the 10 units per acre. You're being duped to be set
up to be sued."
Resident Luke Courtney asked if council should take
a formal vote to accept Fernandez's interpretation. City
Clerk Leslie Ford said the council can support the build-
ing official's determination on the official record and take
formal action at the next council meeting.
Council agreed to place it on the March 1 council
meeting agenda.


Code violators on notice

in Holmes Beach


Letters to 62 code violators have been sent by
Holmes Beach Code Enforcement Officer Mike
Heistand since Oct. 1, 1993, the date the position was
created.
Heistand reported at last week's city council meet-
ing that the letters include violations concerning 13 sand-
wich board signs, five flags and banners, 11 coin oper-
ated machines, eight boats and trailers and 15 overgrown
yards. The count did not include abandoned and
untagged vehicles and-travel trailers that were cited.
Councilwoman Mary Ellen Reichard asked about
illegally parked boats on Clark Drive about which the
city has received numerous complaints. Heistand said
owners are in receipt of their first notice and second no-
tices are being sent.
Heistand also noted that the count did not include
personal contacts in which violations are cleared up on
the spot.
Councilwoman Carol Whitmore asked that Heistand
report back to council in three months.
Reichard asked for a revenue report in six months;


however, Councilman Rich Bohnenberger pointed out
that the purpose of action is not revenue but compliance.
Public Works Supervisor John Fernandez confirmed
that and said that in one category of violations, the city
received $12,000 in fines but in another, the city spent
$8,000 in attorney's fees.
Heistand said in five days recently the city took 25
complaints. He said to complain a citizen may call or
come into the public works department and give as much
information as possible. Complaints can be anonymous.
In other business, the council will consider applicants
for the planning commission at the March 3 work session.
There is one opening on the board created by the resigna-
tion of Frank Davis. Applicants include Betty Hill and
Gene Aubry.
The city received $10,000 from the Rex Hagan Foun-
dation for bleachers, lights and a batting cage for the city
ball field.
The council voted to petition Governor Lawton
Chiles for a separate seat for a Holmes Beach represen-
tative on the Metropolitan Planning Organization.


Clean sweep for Bradenton Beach?


A $40,000 street sweeper purchase may be replaced by
an $1,800-per-year rental of the road cleaning equipment,
Bradenton Beach Council members indicated last week.
Council members, led by Councilman Herb Dolan,
have been looking into buying a street sweeping machine
for the past few months. The cost of the machine the
cheapest is about $40,000 has caused the city coun-
cil to balk at the expenditure, despite indications from
Holmes Beach that they would be willing to hire out the
equipment and thus reduce the expense to the city.
Enter Sweeping Corp. of America. Representatives
from the company told Building Superintendent Buddy


Watts they would clean the entire 4.5 miles of streets in
Bradenton Beach for $300. Dolan figures the streets need
to be swept every other month, hence the $1,800-a-year
charge.
"This sounds like a God-send," Councilman Jim
Kissick said. He added that the cost of a sweeper would
have to include about $20,000 for maintenance and equip-
ment in the long run, items not needed if a private contrac-
tor were used.
Watts was instructed to meet with Sweeping Corp. of
America representatives and report back to the council
March 3.

Beautification project gains momentum


By Jeannie Friedman
Islander Reporter
If enthusiasm can be used as a measure, Island-wide
beautification may be a project whose time has come.
Still in its infancy, the proposed project is being en-
thusiastically received by citizens, elected officials from
all three Island cities and local business owners.
At least two landscape architects have made a com-
mitment to work on the Island-wide planting and spruc-
ing up project.
Bradenton Beach Mayor, Katie Pierola, Holmes
Beach Mayor, Pat Geyer, and Anna Maria City Commis-
sioner, Dorothy McChesney and Holmes Beach Council-
woman, Billie Martini, were inattendance at lastFriday's
organizational meeting.
A former executive director of Keep Manatee Beau-
tiful has volunteered her services as have local garden club
representatives.
Some area business owners have expressed interest in
the project and have pledged to take an active role in get-
ting it under way.
The project would involve a comprehensive plan
which would require the approval and cooperation of the
Island cities. Ideally, such a project would be a coopera-
tive effort between governments, private citizens, busi-
nesses, clubs and organizations.
Citizens would provide the bulk of the work and


maintenance but funding would be sought through do-
nations applications to granting agencies.
Marg Soeffker, who worked on a state-wide beau-
tification project in Minnesota, plans to draft a resolution
to be presented to Island elected officials. She hopes the
state and the county will also become involved.
Virginia Knowles, a Bradenton resident, is willing
to lend expertise she gained while working on the Keep
Manatee Beautiful project Her group received $21,000
in grant money and $24,147 in donations to improve the
city of Bradenton.
Jim Hilton and John Moody, both Bradenton land-
scape architects, are willing to design a comprehensive
planting plan and Moody has agreed to prepare a video
using imaging which would show the Island as it looks
now and how it would look at the completion of the
project The architects are recruiting others in their field
to become involved.
The Minnesota group that Soeffker was involved
with received President Bushes' Environmental Chal-
lenge Award in 1993.
Soeffker said, "I am overwhelmed with the response
and the enthusiasm I've gotten here. I can't believe how
fast everything is happening and how willing everyone
is to help. This is wonderful."
For more information or to become involved in the
project, phone Billie Martini at 778-2549.

The Island Poet
One thing that is surely in a retiree's prayer,
Is that his old car will start and get him there.
For his old car with all its bumps looks on the bum,
And the motor makes funny noises when it used to hum.
When he sees the prices asked for the cars of today,
It's a wonder the poor guy don't just pass away.
But he is so proud that his bills he can meet,
For his income and auto are in a dead heat.
Bud Atteridge

The fish and the pelicans in Cortez were hosts to a huge crowd of delighted visitors last
weekend to the 12th annual Cortez Commercial Fishing Festival.
Entertainment included loggers, the Cortez Grand Ole Opry and bands playing through-
out the day along with some of the locals and not so local characters.
A Jamaican contortionist mystified audiences. Clowns and pirates delighted small chil-
dren. Tons of chowder, mullet and assorted seafood were consumed. Educational exhibits
told of the history of Cortez, commercial fishing and aquariums and tanks held examples of
local, live sealife.
The proceeds will help local fishermen's efforts to protect their way of life and their live-
lihood from the threat posed by "ban the net" proponents..

Wacky comedy seems to fit

Islanders' lifestyle well


By Tomara Kafka
Islander Reporter
The stage is small and the cast seems huge. Di-
rector Dorothy McChesney must have taken on quite
a challenge just to fill the many roles in "You Can't
Take It With You," the 1936 comedy hit written by
Moss Hart and George S. Kaufman. The play is cur-
rently running at the Chapel Theatre, Roser Memorial
Community Church, through Sunday.
But it isn't difficult to keep track of the nearly 20
actors and actresses (many are familiar faces) on the
stage at various points in this three-act play about one
family's most unusual commitment in their search for
happiness.
The plot of "You Can't Take It With You" is
about the young love and subsequent engagement
between Alice Sycamore (played well by Laura
Nelson) and Tony Kirby (also played well by Magnus
Hines, i11). But the theme of the play is more about
people learning to let go of the status quo and the quest
for self-fulfillment.
The play was written at a time in this country's his-
tory when American diversity of the individual was cel-
ebrated. While we are still reeling from the yuppie go-
getter mentality of the 1980s and settling into some other
identity a tum-of-the-century mentality of the 1990s
-itis a great pleasure to view this resurrection of char-
acters such as Martin Vandexbof(played by Renal Hook),
who gleefully announces his own successful demise eight
years ago to the Internal Revenue Service. Itisn't his real
death, naturally. The family provided that name to a
stranger who showed up one day and remained with the


family until he died. They had to name him something,
And since they had no idea what his real name was they
provided him with one Martin Vanderhof the
same as the patriarch of this family who has led his suc-
ceeding generations to seek personal rather than fi-
nancial success.
The gesture is, of course, symbolic, since Vanderhof
gave up the business world 35 years previously, and the
IRS sends their apologies.
The message of the play, which must have ap-
pealed to Director McChesney, is both current and
universal. For example, Vanderhof's grace before
supper (the menu consists of items such as
cornflakes, watermelon, candy and "some kind of
meat") is a running commentary to God about the
immediate family concerns "and the rest," says
Vanderhof to God, "well, we'll leave that up to You."
The many subplots of the play add to the hilar-
ity. The audience laughs out loud many times during,
the performance at the characterizations and antics of
this funny family.
Everyoneis funny. Some ofthe betterperformances
are by Marilyn Hawkins (who plays Penelope Sy-
camore, Alice's mother), John Durkin and Debbie
Keller-McCartney (playing husband and wife Ed and
Essie Carmichael), Pat Sunquist (playing Gay
Wellington), and Roy McChesney and Pat Hoefig (play-
ing Mr. and Mrs. Kirby).
The Chapel Theatre is located on Pine Avenue,
in Anna Maria. Tickets are $6 for adults, $3 for stu-
dents of any age and may be purchased at the Chapel
or the Artists Guild Gallery.

By Tomara Kafka
Islander Reporter
In Bradenton Beach, the Bridge Tender Inn has a
new general manager and head chef. Kathy Eubanks, for-
merly with Beach Bistro, is already making changes in the
menu. She is adding some new items and daily specials
with a new menu to come after season. You can't beat the
the Bridge Tender Inn's view right on the bay and
you can dine inside or out.
Key West Willy's offers 36 specials every day for
lunch, early bird and dinner and many of those are
prepared by Clem Dryden (owner), self-proclaimed spe-
cialty man. The chef is Paul Litton, and Dryden says he
never outshines the chef. But one Island resident recently
told me that Willy's poached salmon was incredible, and
that was one of Dryden's specials. Last week Dryden
bought lots of fresh seafood including Key West Lobster
tails, shark, grouper and snapper. This week, he has lots
of veal specials. My advice: try the specials. For entertain-
ment, Key West Willy's has the Chandler Brothers sched-
uled for this weekend.
If you haven't tried one of Oma's pizzas yet, you're
in for a treat We always request garlic as one of the items
on ours. Their garlic is fresh, abundantly sprinkled, and
adds a wonderful flavor to their pizza pies.
The Beach House now offers dinner-hour entertain-
ment on Tuesday and Wednesday evenings. The Leon
Merian Quartet is a traffic-stopping horn ensemble that
has a long, rich musical history with many big-name en-
tertainers such as Aretha Franklin. Of course, until season

is over, they won't have to stop traffic on Gulf Drive, it's
gridlocked most of the afternoon and early evening.
In Holmes Beach, Beach Bistro has done some re-
modeling and with one of the walls in the main dining
room removed, they've added another table. They will be
sponsoring a series of luncheons and wine tasting after
Easter. Guest chefs will provide an educational as well as
a wonderful dining experience. More information to come
in this column, but I do know this, reservations are a must.
One of the best times to go to Cafe on the Beach
sunset. Four nights a week Kenny Mullinix plays lots of
requests (especially Elvis) on his guitar and on Sundays
the Poor Mon Steel Drum Band plays. It's a "Key Westy"
kinda sunset ceremony when everyone pays homage to
the sinking sun. Cafe on the Beach offers both beach-side
patio and inside dining. And this week the barricades have
been removed from the pier. People as well as beach birds
can now walk the expanse.
There's some hot entertainment happening on the
Island this weekend at the Anchor Inn. Sunday afternoon
is a benefit "bash" with proceeds from the $5 cover go-
ing to help Tommy Tanner cover some recent medical
expenses. Lots of bands will be donating play time with
favorites including the DTs, Willy Steele, Tim Chandler
and more.
At Turtles Bar & Grill, Lifeguard is scheduled
Thursday through Saturday. Sunday night, Neurotica, a
Bradenton alternative music group, is set for a one-night-
only performance.
If you stop in the Dry Dock Inn you can see Winter's
Ghost, a Bradenton band that performs acoustic music -
that unplugged sound that is so popular right now and
much of it is original material.
Hank McDermott and Friends perform at D.Coy
Ducks Bar & Grill early Wednesday through Saturday.

Pan Dan plays Tuesday and Wednesday. Monday night
entertainment is Meta 4, a rock 'n' roll band.
In Anna Maria, we stopped in for dinner the other
night at Cafe Robar. The Caesar salad was very fresh and
had a wonderfully subtle blend of flavors. Dinner was
quite enjoyable.
You'll have to drive to the southern end of Longboat
Key,but the Old Salty Dog on City Island makes your
trip worthwhile. The outside restaurant and bar sits on a
pier overlooking Sarasota Bay and the New Pass bridge.
This time of year (weather permitting, after all it's been
an unusual winter) it's great to just sit there; swill down
one of their eclectic brands of beer, and eat fresh seafood.

Feb. 9, escape, battery on a police officer, resisting
arrest with violence, 116 Bridge Street, Sports Lounge.
The officer responded to a disturbance in which the vic-
tim said the subject came into the bar and threatened him
by saying he was going to have a contract put out on him
to have him killed. The victim told the subject to leave the
bar and the subject threw an ashtray across the room,
shook the window and kicked the door off its top hinge.
The subject became very abusive to the officer and
said he would kill the victim. The officer advised the sub-
ject he was being placed in custody and the subject re-
sisted. As the officer struggled to handcuff the subject, the
subject punched the officer in the chest and ran. The of-
ficer, as well as back-up officers, pursued the subject but
were unable to find him.
About two hours later, the officer observed the sub-
ject walking north on Gulf Drive. As the officer placed the
subject in custody, the subject hit the officer in the side.
Feb. 11, reckless driving, attached tag not assigned,
driving an unregistered motor vehicle, SR 789 and 684.
The officer observed the subject traveling north on SR 789
at a high rate of speed and swerving recklessly upon ap-
proaching the intersection. The subject turned east
abruptly, nearly striking another vehicle. The officer fol-


lowed the subject across the bridge at 60 to 65 mph, pulled
the subject over and placed him in custody.
Feb. 11, attempted burglary, 2412 Gulf Dr. N., Sand
and Sea Resort. The subject went to the motel and at-
tempted to gain entry to three different windows using a
screwdriver. He was confronted by a witness and the
manager and after a verbal confrontation, he said an un-
known male named George owed him money and alleg-
edly lived there. He stated he would kill George if he
found him. The subject fled. Based on descriptions by the
witnesses, he was pulled over and placed in custody by the
officer.
Feb. 12, domestic battery, 100 block of Bridge
Street. The officer observed the defendant and the victim
arguing in the street. The officer saw the defendant close
his hand into a fist and strike the victim in the face. He
placed the defendant in custody.
Feb. 13, obstruction of justice, domestic battery, 100
block of Bridge Street. The officer observed the defendant
slap the victim twice in the face and placed the defendant

and, after being warned three times by the officer, was
placed in custody.
Feb. 13, theft of a bicycle, 400 block of Second

the beach. The complainant was asleep on the beach. He

valued at $150, that were in a bag nearby.
Feb. 11, larceny of a bicycle, 6900 block of Holmes

levard.
Feb. 12, carrying a concealed firearm, 3007 Gulf
Dr., Anchor Inn. Two males who were having an alterca-
tion were ejected from the bar. The officer was advised
that one subject said he had a gun. The officer patrolled
the area and found the subject driving slowly, without
headlights, toward the bar. The officer stopped and se-
cured the subject and searched the vehicle. The officer
found a handgun concealed, handle up, between the
driver's seat and the center console. He placed the subject

rested. The caller said his automobile containing his wallet
was towed away, and he needed $195 for bail. The caller

The Holmes Beach City Council delayed a discussion
on a home occupation license for a firearms dealer until
federal law can be consulted.
At last week's work session, Wallace Gross of 3014
Gulf Drive applied for the license for his business,
Mickey's Personal Protective Equipment, for the sale of
firearms and safety courses on firearms. All sales are to
be conducted at area gun shows according to the applica-
tion.
Councilwoman Carol Whitmore asked if Gross had
received his federal firearms license yet. Gross said he
must have a place of business first.
City Clerk Leslie Ford said she was contacted by the
Department of the Treasury's Bureau of Alcohol, To-
bacco and Firearms and their regulations require that the


business location be the primary location of distribution
for the product.
Sgt. Dale Stephenson of the Holmes Beach Police
Department added, "The ATF is trying to weed out a lot
of the gun dealers and is putting a lot more regulations on
them. One of the regulations is that the dealer must have
a storefront, a place of business."
Stephenson said he knows of two deputies who have
a firearms license and are working out of their home. The
pair is closing their business because of the regulation.
Whitmore said the council cannot proceed until it has
a copy of the ATF regulations. The decision was delayed
until the March 3 work session.

Tales of Scott Moore, Bucktown and the Big Easy


By Bob Ardren
Outdoor perspectives
Holmes Beach's Scott Moore, the open water snook
fishing guru for Southwest Florida, spoke at a local
Florida Conservation Association (FCA) meeting recently
and laid some truths on us mere mortals.
He also passed along some tips you might find handy
if you're as clumsy at snook fishing as I am.
Arriving in St Petersburg from Cape Cod at the ripe
old age of six months, ("My Dad liked baseball and sold
insurance, so he decided to sell it here,") Moore swears he
caught his first snook shortly after his sixth birthday.
"There was this Australian pine that had fallen into
the water and I could just see that sucker hanging out
down there amongst the branches. So I went running to
my Ma, yelling I needed some bait She gave me a part
of a hot-dog and the rest is history.


If you like baseball and you want to see the stars in
the league this year, line up early for tickets to the games
at McKechnie Field between the home team Pittsburgh
Pirates and the neighboring team from Sarasota, the Chi-
cago White Sox. Last year the Sox had football star Bo
Jackson and this year they're attracting fans with basket-
ball legend Michael Jordon.
Spring training officially opens in Bradenton with the
first Pittsburgh Pirate game an intra-squad game on
March 1 at 1:05 p.m. to benefit the Manatee Public School
Foundation. Another benefit game on March 2 benefits
the Boys and Girls Club of Bradenton. Admission is $2
to both.
The regular season schedule is as follows:
March 3 Minnesota Twins
March 5 Cincinnati Reds
March 7 Chicago White Sox
March 8 St Louis Cardinals

"Oh yea," Moore said, "the snook weighted about
four pounds."
He's a great storyteller, in addition to being a famous
guide. How famous? Well, he wisely doesn't talk about
his clients much, but I keep seeing and hearing his name
pop up whenever the rich and powerful write or talk about
their snook-fishing trips in our part of the country.
For example, recently-retired sports editor of the
Tampa Tribune Tom McEwen writes on snook fishing
about once a year. And he always talks about fishing with
Moore. And how his really powerful friends McEwen
has plenty of them came along.
Moore has devoted his life to fishing and trying to
understand the snook, a wily creature if ever there was
one. For example, everybody knows snook tend to feed
at night, and Moore thinks he has an explanation why.
"First of all, high (barometric) pressure is death on

snook. Normally, a high barometer makes fishing tough,
and snook especially hard to catch.
"But it wasn't until a few years ago I got to know a
TV weatherman up in Tampa who rather absently told me
one day how barometric pressure nearly always drops a
little every night Bingo! That might be the explanation."
And it makes sense, until I remembered Moore
doesn't fish at night His specialty is daytime, open-wa-
ter snook. But he suggests the rest of use do our snook
fishing at night anyway. Oh well.
Moore uses eight and 10-pound monofilament line,
suggesting that most of us use the 10-pound because it
lasts longer. Leaders are 20-pound mono. He never uses
any swivels anywhere, anytime.
"Learn to tie the Bimini twist," is his advice.
Hooks are all the new laser-sharp models, and "white-
bait are the best bait Pinfish and grunts are also among
the better baits," he suggested.
A couple of local spots he recommends for snook
include Emerson Point and Mullet Key, but he especially
recommends fishing "wherever waters come together," as
it does at Emerson Point.
As the evening wore on, he got to telling Anna Maria
stories, such as the time the 43-foot whale showed up at the
city pier. Those were the days when Salty Sol was still doing
TV and lived in Anna Maria, so he-showed up with a crew
and recorded them towing the beast off for an autopsy.
He said it was the biggest excitement on the Island in
years. And as I said, he's a great storyteller. But then, what
good fisher isn't?
A stroke of wonderful luck took me io wonderful
o1' New Orleans (say Nau'lens) last weekend, so I beat
it up to Bucktown on Lake Pontchartrain for another look
at New Orleans' version of Cortez.
It's probably been 20 years since I last sat on one of
those old porches hanging out over the water and cracked
a bunch of blue crabs, peeled a mess of shrimp and slurped
plate after plate of raw oysters. As you can imagine, things
have changed. ,
There are lots more houses built up inside the dike
between the Lake and City. I don't object too much, as
most of them are obviously working-class homes, some
with features like trucks on blocks in the side yard and big
ol' smokers sitting out front.
It's the towers that scare me. Big towers, some of
them 12 and 15 stories high, full of condominiums. And,
of course, each one pushed out dozens of shackey old
fisherman's cottages along the shoreline, not to mention
their docks, fish- and crab-cleaning sheds and my fa-
vorites the old seafood shack restaurants.
My latest favorite, generally the last one I was in, is
the old Sid-Mars on the water in Bucktown.
, Boats we'd call bay shrimpers with big fantails are
tied up by the dozen back in the canals along the edge of
the Lake. Every day they supply the shrimp and crabs for
the Big Easy -- those lucky folks downtown.
For those readers who like state parks and didn't
like my critique of their book, I offer a thought that will
save them money.
The Florida Division of Recreation and Parks offers an
annual pass of $30 for individuals, $60 for a family of up to
eight, good at more than 140 state parks. Contact Florida Park
Service, 3900 Commonwealth Blvd. MS 535, Tallahassee,

Trout fishing improves in bay; amberjack best bet offshore


By Capt. Mike Heistand
The weather is good and the fishing is great! Off-
shore, amberjack and grouper are still good bets to fill the
ice chest. In the backwater, trout are starting to make their
run. And the reports are starting to come in of Spanish
mackerel.
Capt. Zack on the Dee Jay II said Spanish mackerel
are producing some fast-paced action for offshore anglers.
Also helping to fill the cooler are good catches of bluefish,
cobia, pompano, trigger fish and sheepshead. In the back-
waters, Capt. Zack is doing well with big redfish some
up to 10 pounds in size some whopping 25-inch speck-
led trout, and a few flounder.
Kevin at the Rod and Reel Pier said mackerel are
starting to show up around the pier, as well as sheepshead
and a few redfish.
Dave at the Anna Maria City Pier said sheepies are
still coming on strong, as well as the start of a mackerel
run and a few errant redfish.
At the Bradenton Beach Pier, Mary said fishermen
are catching a few flounder and a lot of silver trout She
suggested using shrimp as bait for the flatties.
Capt Dave on the Neva-Miss said the fishing action
has really improved in the last week. His all-day charters
are bringing back great catches of snapper, especially
mangrove, lane and yellowtail. Farther offshore, Capt.
Dave said grouper fishing is okay-to-slow. His half-day
trips are letting fishers bring in a bunch of sheepshead,
Spanish mackerel and mangrove snapper.
Bill at Island Discount Tackle agreed that fishing has
gotten much, much better in the past few days. Offshore,
grouper and snapper should improve, and the run may
have begun for Spanish mackerel near the passes.
Capt Rick Gross said he's been getting his charters
onto good catches of reds, sheepshead and trout.
Capt. Tom Chaya said mackerel are his suggestion
of the fish-of-the-week, as well as waning sheepshead
catches, trout and reds.
Capt. Todd Romine said he's been able to put his
charters onto good catches of mangrove snapper, redfish
and sheepshead.
Capt Phil Shields said offshore fishing continues to
stress amberjack as a best bet. He's also catching a lot of
red and black grouper as well as yellowtail and mangrove
snapper.
Chris at Galati Yacht Basin said offshore anglers
have been bringing in big amberjack and black grouper.
In the bays, redfish, trout, mackerel and sheepshead have
been coming to fishermen's hooks.

These guys didn't miss anything while out on the Miss Cortez
Dick Vanker and Bill Jacobs had a good day while fishing on the Miss Cortez recently, and proudly showed off their
catch of assorted bottom-dwellers caught while fishing in the Gulf


Capt. Mitch Cockrell said he's been catching a lot
of mangrove snapper under and along side the Skyway
Bridge. He's also catching some six-pound sheepshead
near the span. And, while he's been in Tampa Bay, Capt.
Mitch said he's been able to get hooked-up with some big
mackerel.
Carl at Perico Harbor Bait and Tackle said trout
seem to be moving through the fast-moving channels in
the bay. Try using a shrimp to hook 'em. Near the
beaches, he suggests trying to get some of the mackerel
that are just offshore. And here's a tip: some cobia were
seen near Marker 70.
Ruth at the Miss Cortez Fishing Fleet said the four-
hour trip is averaging 610 head of mostly Key West

grunts. The six-hour trip is averaging 460-head of most of
the snapper family: lane, mangrove, vermillion, as well as
Key West grunts, porgies and sea bass. The all-day trip is
averaging 50-head of amberjack, porgies, grouper and
mangrove snapper.
On my boat Magic we've been doing well with trout,
some up to four pounds in size, as well as lots of mangrove
snapper, a few reds and some sheepshead. Offshore, we're
catching a lot of big amberjack and black grouper.
Good luck and good fishing.
