ISLANDER

THE FREE VOICE OF ANNA MARIA ISLAND


DECEMBER 3, 1992


Affection for Island is carved onto brick walkway


By Joy Courtney
Editor
It is exciting to look down and see your family's
name carved into a bold, sturdy brick, knowing it's
part of a road leading into the Island's future; a piece
of the Island, a piece of posterity.
The first phase of a perpetual beautification project
has been completed. The "Anna Maria Island Walk" has
finally been laid, named brick by unnamed brick, after
years of planning lead by Commissioner Mary Ross and
Mike Miller both of Anna Maria City. A brainchild of
citizen Ruth Elliott, the project started two years ago this,
Friday when the City's Beautification Committee was
looking for a way to finance landscaping public grounds
without using tax payer's dollars.
"This is going to be a kick when our friends
come to visit. We'll bring them here to get a picture
of all of us by our brick," commented Jan Test as she
looked over her family's brick in the walk. The Test
family was one of the first of the 211 persons or fami-
lies who purchased bricks during the 20 months prior
to installation. "We almost forgot we bought one,"
laughed Test.
Since the walk has been installed, 60 more Is-
landers, friends of Islanders, and lovers of Anna
Maria Island have signed up to have their own per-
manent footprint in the Island's sand; each engraved
brick capturing the idea of how people feel about
Anna Maria Island.
Purchased in Colorado and engraved in Indiana,
the placement of the named bricks has a planned pat-
tern in the walk.
"Until the remaining 700 named bricks are sold
and installed, the pattern is a little difficult to see. It's
a one, two, one, two, pattern in both directions which
will guarantee that there will always be blank bricks
around a named brick. We wanted it this way so the
walk would never looked cluttered. We wanted each
name to stand out," explained Miller.
"I think its nice. It makes a memory," said
Gwen Desmarais of her family's brick.
Added Test, "It's special to think people will be
walking along and see your name here as being part
of an Island project and part of the Island itself."
"The names on the bricks are all personal names,"
explained Miller. "There are no clubs, businesses, dates,
or 'in memory of's.' We encourage people to consider



Second look

okayed for

bridge
At its regular meeting on Monday, Novem-
ber 23, the Metropolitan Planning Organization
(MPO) did not postpone the 1994/95 start date
for the new, fixed span Manatee Avenue Bridge.
Postponement of the start date was not an agenda
item for the MPO, although it was obviously
hoped for by opponents of the bridge.
As you have previously read in The Is-
lander/Bystander, opponents of the fixed span
bridge strongly requested the City of Holmes
Beach rescind its pro-bridge resolution in order
for them to have more ammunition with the
MPO, and then the Florida Department of Trans-
portation.
A slight chip in the concrete was realized,
however. It is possible that there will be a MPO
sanctioned committee formed of county and city
elected officials, to be chaired by Manatee
County Commissioner Kent Chetlain, in order to
take a second look at the scheduled Manatee
Avenue replacement bridge.

A partnership for history
The Desmarais and Test families ofAnna Maria Island join members ofAnna Maria City's Beautification Committee.
The families are standing near their engraved bricks now part of the Island Walk while the committee members prepare
to landscape plants paid for by the proceeds from the Island Walk project. From left to right are: Walter and Gwen
Desmarais, James Doherty, son ofIslander Jan Test, Jan with husband Todd, and Jan's second son, Pat Doherty.
Kneeling are Anna Maria City Commissioner Mary Ross, and beautification volunteers Mike Miller and Ed Brown.


the bricks as a very personal and intimate statement of
their affection for the Island. Many of the bricks are en-
graved with just first names."
The proceeds from the walk go toward the
beautification of public grounds in Anna Maria City.
The Beautification Committee began its project
around city hall and the Island Players. Two years
later it is a lush, native, low maintenance Florida gar-
den and, as proceeds from the bricks come in, the
committee plans to expand to other areas of the city.
"The Island Walk project will be on-going,"
said Miller. "The potential from the bricks available
for the existing walk could bring us over $18,000.
This will pay for plants and materials to beautify our
public grounds for years to comeand it goes a long
way, because all labor is donated by volunteers."
Miller continued,"I really want to make the public
understand that in return for their "footprint in the sand"
their dollars are and will be used frugally. If a profes-
sional landscaper had been employed to do the same
landscaping we have done (outside city hall), the cost
would not be unreasonable at $50,000.
"We started the City Hall area with the money
from the first 200 bricks, $5,000 from the City to install
walks, sprinklers and other permanent items, donations
of plants, potting our own cuttings, and, especially, with
the labor done by volunteers."
Miller finished, "the Island is a beautiful place. We
just want to do what we can to keep it that way for the
enjoyment of all its citizens."


Festival fun

this weekend
There will be an excellent opportunity to purchase
original works of art and crafts for gift giving this week-
end at the annual Festival of Fine Arts, hosted by the

craftsmen, a day-long program of entertainment will

What is so interesting?
The Test and Desmaraisfamilies ofAnna Maria Island look
for their engraved bricks in the new Island Walk outside
Anna Maria City Hall and the Island Players in Anna
Maria City. This head-down walk is a common sight since
the installation. Engraved brick proceeds go toward
beautification projects planned throughout the City.

Island reality
When you read the front page headline on the No-
vember 25 edition of The Islander/Bystander, "Armed
gunman robs Church of Annunciation." and the week's
police reports, we hope it was as obvious to you that Is-
landers could cut their crime rate by using plain, old
common sense just lock our cars, homes, and busi-
nesses.
Anna Maria Island is a paradise, but we must ex-
ist within the reality of 1992.
Lock up and lock crime out!





Thanks for the news
Thank you for continuing the Island tradition with
a community newspaper!
It is important to Island residents that we keep in-
formed of any issues that could affect the Island now or
in the future.
It was proven in the first issue of the new Weekly,
formerly The Island Sun, that local news would be lost.
Keep up the good work
Carol Whitmore
Holmes Beach
Children are the future
Children will become our government leaders,
owners of businesses, part of the country's work force
and shape the world of tomorrow. But education does
not begin in universities, in training centers or even post
graduate studies. It begins here, on this island and in
every town and city across our great nation.
Education is not limited to educational institu-
tions. It is the total co-operative effort of parents,
teachers and the community. You, as part of that com-
munity, also take an active role in the education of our
children. We are fortunate here that our community
school, Anna Maria Elementary, has always enjoyed
the reputation of excellence. Again, it is through this
co-operative effort of the entire community that makes
this possible. It is the focal point of our island that
draws everyone together.
We are rapidly becoming a global society. Tech-
nology is such that communication can be instanta-
neous. Computers make information available at the
press of a button, yet there is still an overwhelming de-
sire for the continuation of "tradition values." We, at
Anna Maria School, need to expand our walls and be-
come involved with all segments of the educational pro-
cess. That is why a survey developed by our School
Improvement Committee has been submitted to the
families of our students asking for their opinions con-
cerning a variety of topics. We at Anna Maria Elemen-
tary would like the community's input as we make de-
cisions for our school. We are presently developing
both short and long range goals that we hope will make
a difference in our children's future.
On behalf of the students, staff, parents and the
community, I welcome everyone to be an integral and
viable part of our programs and objectives. Please feel
free to contact me at 778-1125 at any time if there is
anything on which you wish to comment.
James P. Kronus
Principal, Anna Maria School


Kudos to all from
Artists Guild and AMICC
Heritage Week sponsored by the Artists Guild and
the Anna Maria Community Center was a great success.
It seems commonplace to thank the Island and off Is-
land businesses for their participation, but the fact re-
mains that without their support and generosity, com-
bined with the enthusiasm of the community of Anna
Maria Island, nothing would be accomplished.
With that in mind, a heartfelt "thank you" goes to
the following advertisers: Stacey's Buffet, Anna Maria
Island Chamber of Commerce, Duffy's Tavern, AMI
West Sportswear, Beach Bistro, Gulf Drive Cafe, Sweet
Spoone Restaurant, Pete Reynard's Restaurant, Heron's
Watch Gallery, Over the Bridge Gallery, Chez Andre
Restaurant, Kennedy Studio, Cafe Robar Restaurant,
the Island Players, Harrington House, Harlan's 1 Hour

Another "thank you" to the businesses and indi-
viduals who donated raffle prizes. They were Peggy
Potter, Woody Candish, Doug Wolfe, The Inn Between,
Eckerd Drugs, Home True Value Hardware, Bealls

The saga continues with a recipe contributed by
Joann Kratzmiller of Holmes Beach, who stopped in
our office with this recipe, given to her "about 20 years
ago by my Southem grandmother, who was otherwise a
very proper lady!" Her recipe for the "white" version of
last week's chocolate cake follows.
In 9" by 13" pan, bake as directed one box
yellow cake mix.
When cake comes out of oven, score deeply
with ice pick, and top while still hot with the fol-
lowing mixture:
1 cup milk
2 cups sugar
(Bring to boil & cook, stirring, till sugar dis-
solves)
Add 6 oz. frozen coconut from 9 oz. package
saving 3 oz. for final topping.


Wrap tightly with double layer of foil and set
aside till completely cooled.
Ice cake with one medium-sized container
Cool Whip, sprinkle with remaining 3 oz. coconut,
re-wrap with foil, and refrigerate till time to serve.
Keep leftovers refrigerated.

Acid Rain: Kids can do their part to
save the environment and the Island
Up in the Sky When we look up, we see the clouds and the blue sky. But
there are other things in the sky that we do not see. Some of these are harmful to the
Earth.
What Happens When power plants bum coal to make electricity, and when
cars bum gasoline, invisible gases are released into the air. Some of these gases can
mix with water and make it acidic, like lemon juice or vinegar.
What Can Happen Sometimes the gases get into rain clouds, where they get
mixed in with rain or snow. Then the acid falls back to earth with the rain or snow.
This is call acid rain.
Bad News Acid rain is extremely harmful to plants, rivers and likes, and the
creatures that live in them. In some places it is killing forests. And it pollutes the
water that animals and people need to drink.
Our Mission It's very important for us to stop making acid rain. One good
way to do that is to drive our cars less. Another good way is to save energy. The less
energy we use, the less coal those power plants will have to bum.

Lazzara has show at Heron's Watch


By Joy Courtney
Editor
"What I Believe makes me different is that I
enjoy doing many medians as well as portraits,"
commented Joyce Lazzara of her work as we strolled
through her exhibit at the Heron's Watch gallery in
Anna Maria City. "A lot of work in this show was
inspired by the beaches here on Anna Maria Island,"
she added.
Lazzara is a part-time resident of Anna Maria
City while pursuing her art full-time. The versatility
of this talented artist is her mastery of the creative
process in doing original paintings, drawings and
etchings, monoprints and serigraphs, limited edition
art prints, fine art posters, custom portraiture and has
recently involved herself in RepligraphT.
Nancy Corcoran, the owner of Heron's Watch,
knew Lazzara, but was surprised to find out that
Lazzara was the artist behind the neon's sculptures
she had recently admired at Malio's in Tampa.
"When I found out Joyce was the creator of that
work, I asked her to do two neon sculptures for
Heron's. All that lead to this show," said Corcoran.
Lazzara was a professional model for 15 years
and attended art school on and off during that period.
As a wife to husband Bennie and mother of two
teenage boys, Cayman and Croix, she is now able to

Joyce Lazzara enhanced her rendering of this beach scene
through the use of neon art. This painting is part of the
artist's show at Heron's Walk gallery.

dedicate all her time to her work. As proud as she is
of her Fine Arts Degree from the University of South
Florida, she is enthusiastic over her life-time opportu-
nities to have traveled the world copying the masters.
"Classroom education is important, but the way to
truly learn is to sit, paint and copy the masters. This is
commonly done in Europe and the one of the best
ways for artists to learn their crafts. I have been able
to do this all over the world except in the Orient. That
is still one.of my goals," explained Lazzara.
Lazzara's show will continue until the end of
this year. Herons' Watch gallery is located at 509
Pine Avenue in Anna Maria City. The gallery's phone

Sheepshead and flounder flocking
Flounder. November and December are hot
months for said catch. Try bouncing a bait along the
sandy bottoms of channels, potholes and canal en-
trances. Live bait like shrimp, shiners, silversides and
small pinfish will all catch fish.
You'll find sheepshead along most bridges and
piers. Sand fleas, fiddlers crabs and small shrimp are
readily available and will catch fish. You can also use
oyster crabs, tube worms or snapping shrimp. Try a
small stout hook. A #2 works well with sand fleas and
a #4 with small crabs.
