Rogue wave study rolling along
By Paul Roat
The jury is still out on what caused an unusually
high wave to crest on the shores of Anna Maria Island
Saturday, March 25.
The National Weather Service is still evaluating
and assessing what some have termed as a "mini-tidal
wave" that struck the Island that Saturday. No damage
has been reported in the wake of the wave, although
dozens of Island residents reported the freak incident.
Weather officials are still looking for residents who
have photos or videos of the event. Call 813/645-2323
if you have any information.
"We're still analyzing," Walt Zaleski said. "We
have no definitive information right now, and are still
Repairs to the Key Royale Bridge are on schedule,
said Holmes Beach Public Works Supervisor John
Fernandez and should be completed by mid-May.
Fernandez said he talked to the contractor, M.L.
Boyer Construction Co., last week and although the
work is on schedule, it is slower than anticipated. The
company is installing new bulkheads on the bridge.
"They've been doing a lot of underwater work,
such as driving piles, that you can't see," explained
Fernandez. "And a lot of the work has been done at
.their yard in town, which has meant less mess for us."
Residents should expect to see more progress in the
next few weeks, he said, as the company adds the concrete
cap on the bulkhead and welds pilings above the water.
In less than a week, more than 70 stock certificates
offering the bearer the "imaginary rights and privileges
of ownership" to the existing Manatee Avenue bridge
have been sold by The Islander Bystander.
The newspaper sponsored the sale of stock cer-
tificates, suitable for framing, to help Save Anna
Maria, Inc., pay attorney fees in the fight against the
Florida Department of Transportation's proposed
65-foot fixed-span bridge.
A total of 496 stock certificates were issued. Each
certificate designates "imaginary rights" to a 12 by 12
foot square of the bridge surface.
The cost is $10 each and are available at The Is-
lander Bystander in the Island Shopping Center, Ma-
rina Drive at Gulf Drive, during normal business hours.

Island residents reported a six-foot-high tidal wave

Chief Romine seeks support on legislation
By Pat Copeland
He came to seek support on legislation but left
his audience amazed by statistics on crime and pun-
When Holmes Beach Police Chief Jay Romine re-
cently addressed the city's
civic association, members
were especially surprised to
learn that there were 325

reported in the city last year.

ChiefRomine vated assault, burglary/
breaking and entering, lar-
ceny/theft, pocket picking, purse snatching, shoplifting,
theft from building, theft from coin-operated machine
or device, theft from motor vehicle, all other larceny
and motor vehicle theft.
A fool's paradise
"That's how many were reported, not how many
arrests were made or how many cases there were or
how many were convicted," said Romine.
Joy Courtney noted that number amounted to about
one per day and asked Romine why the residents do not
read about those cases in the newspaper.
"When those types of cases come in they are im-
mediately investigated," responded Romine. "While
they are under investigation, we don't release them,
because it creates more problems.
"For example, there are certain things about a
case that only the police and the bad guy know
about. If we plaster it all over the newspaper and
then we make an arrest and get a conviction, the first
thing the defense attorney's going to do is present
the newspaper article that gave thousands of people
access to that information."
"It's creating a fool's paradise," said Courtney. "Is
there any way you could release the numbers of the
crimes without details?"
Anna Maria Fire District
welcomed a new mascot
to fire station 1 last week.
"Chief' was officially
adopted by Administra-
tive Secretary Mary

Romine said he could make those available to the
newspaper. (The city's crime statistics will be reported
at the end of every month beginning with the March
report in this issue.)
Of those crimes reported about 25 to 30 percent
are cleared but "we solve a lot of cases we can't
make arrests on because we don't have legal grounds
to file charges," said Romine. "We know beyond a
shadow of a doubt who did it but we can't convince
a prosecutor that he can take him into court and beat
the defense attorney."
Romine said as crime in the city increases, one
thing residents can do is support legislation backed by
Florida's law enforcement agencies.
"Our 'non-criminal' justice system is in sad
shape," he noted, and it will get worse before it gets
better. We have several things we have presented to the
legislature. We're trying to eke out a little light at the
end of the tunnel by identifying the major problems."
One is the Officer Evelyn Gort Career Criminal
Act, named for a policewoman who was killed by a 22-
year-old robber who got $3. At the time of his arrest,
said Romine, the suspect had 21 felony convictions in
four years and had served only six months for those
The act is an effort to repeal the state sentencing
guidelines and assure that career criminals convicted of
violent felonies are put in prison for mandatory terms.
According to the act, they must serve 85 percent of
their sentence before they are eligible for parole.
"Sentencing guidelines were established seven to
eight years ago," explained Romine. "If someone is
convicted of a crime, points are calculated to determine
how much time if any he spends in jail."
Romine passed out score sheets for the audience to
follow and gave an example of a person convicted of
armed robbery, a first-degree life felony. The suspect
had a prior record of conviction for burglary and at-
tempted auto theft. According to the score sheet, the
sentence for armed robbery would be eight years and
two months in jail and the suspect would serve 30 per-
cent or about two years of the sentence.
"State sentencing guidelines have not solved the
Motor vehicle theft
problem and in my opinion have made it worse," said
Romine, "because they've taken the discretion away
from the judge."
Another example under the guidelines is that a
person must be convicted of stealing five cars in order
to be eligible for state prison.
"That's convicted, not how many he's done or
been caught for," said Romine, "but how many there
have been grounds to file charges on."
Punishment should be a deterrent, Romine said, but
many who are convicted serve only 10 percent of their
sentences because of gain time, good behavior, etc.
The recidivism rate or how often a prisoner returns
to prison illustrates this point, he said. Seventy percent
of prisoners who serve 10 percent of their sentences
will return to prison. This drops to 32.7 percent if they
serve 20 percent and 17.9 if they serve 50 percent.
"People say it costs too much to put all these
people in prison. It's costing you not to put these people
in prison," noted Romine, "because they're right back
out there committing more crimes. These guidelines are
so weak, there's no punishment and no fear. People are
not required to answer for their actions any more."
The act would affect 25 percent of all felons, said
Romine. He urged residents to call or write their leg-
islators in support of the legislation which is House Bill
461 and Senate Bill 168.
Another piece of legislation Romine discussed was
a resolution to eliminate discovery depositions in
criminal cases because they "provide unregulated op-
portunities to harass, intimidate and inconvenience vic-
tims and witnesses, discouraging them from proceed-
ing or appearing for trial."
"We really feel like these issues need attention and
it needs to come from the people," said Romine. "One
letter and one phone call makes a tremendous differ-
ence. A lot of people don't realize how bad it is until
they see some of these numbers."
Citizens' Police Academy
The department is working on various ways to
combat crime, said Romine, and one is by improving
public relations. This includes officers getting out in the
community and talking to the residents. Another is
holding a series of community meetings on various
subjects such as residential burglary and neighborhood
The newest program in the works is a citizens'
"This has been done successfully in many small
communities," he noted. "It will probably run one night
a week at the auditorium at the elementary school. It
will be about two hours per night and probably run for
eight weeks. First priority will go to Holmes Beach
residents and business owners."
Applications for the academy are now available at
the Holmes Beach Police Department, 5901 Marina Dr.
Class size is limited to 20 participants age 18 and up.
There will be a nominal fee for materials.
The academy will give residents an inside look at
police procedures, he said, and may expand into a ci-
vilian ride-along policy.
"We are trying to do all we can to get involved in
the community and get the community involved with
us," he noted.
Part 1 offenses in
By Pat Copeland
Property owners near the Anna Maria Island Cen-
tre in Holmes Beach say they are fed up with trash from
the center's dumpsters blowing onto their property.
At a meeting of the Code Enforcement Board last
week, Code Enforcement Officer Mike Heistand said
the problem has been on-going since October of 1993.
The center's management company, Benderson Devel-
opment, recently installed a gate near Shell's restaurant
to try to alleviate the problem.
"I'm not asking for formal action," explained
Heistand. "I'm just informing the board."
Heistand told the board that he's tried to solve the
problem from several angles because he's been unsure
how to approach it.
"We felt the litter was a police matter," he said,
"but it's hard to identify any one particular violator.
The police department can't get involved unless we can
identify the trash."
at new office
Manatee County Tax Collector Ken Burton Jr.
came in person to open the new Island tax office in
the Anna Maria Island Centre in Holmes Beach.
The full-service tax and tag office is open 8:30 am.
to 5p.m. Monday through Friday. Burton and
Office Supervisor Gayle Davis assist Ella Jones
with title work.

Another approach was the city's ordinance that
says a dumpster must be suitably enclosed but the
wording in the ordinance is vague, said Heistand.
"What is 'suitably enclosed?' he asked. "Is it
screening or bushes or what? They say they are suitably
enclosed because they have the six-foot fence and you
can't see the dumpsters unless you drive behind the
Heistand said his definition of suitably enclosed
would be screening each dumpster so the trash could
not blow onto the neighbors' property.
"We did not force them to put up the gate," he
noted. "We told them this may not solve the problem
because the gate could be left open or trash can still
blow through it. They've made a good faith effort and
have told us if this doesn't work, they'll put locks on
the dumpsters or enclose them individually."
"That gate will not work because it won't be
closed," said Bill Saunders. "If it's closed it will im-
pede the traffic."
Trash can blow through the gate, noted Roger Lutz.
Carol Williams suggested that each store bag its
The board voted to send a letter to Benderson mak-
ing that suggestion.
Lutz suggested that the board also write the
center's owner about the problem because "Benderson
must answer to them." The board agreed.
In other business, Heistand informed the board of
the following code changes that are in the works:
New state provisions allowing the city to recover
losses if code enforcement cases are taken to court.
Redefining "suitably enclosed" in relation to the
screening of dumpsters.
Establishing height limits for overgrown lawns.
Videotaping of code violators.

Law enforcement kicks off senior aid program
By Pat Copeland
Representatives of local law enforcement agencies
met in the county commission chambers Wednesday,
April 5, to kick off a new program to aid senior citizens.
The program, Triad, is a partnership between the
sheriffs department, police chiefs and seniors who
agree to work together to reduce the victimization of
older citizens and enhance the delivery of law enforce-
ment services to them.
"The concept is to get law enforcement involved in
senior citizens' problems," explained Cpl. Pat Morris
of the Manatee County Sheriffs Department. "We will
focus on abuse, neglect and exploitation."
The national program began in 1988, said Morris,
and there are now 155 chapters in the United States and
Canada. The Manatee County chapter will be the 13th
established in Florida.
"The crux of the problem is identifying the people
who need the services," said Morris. "We will be hand-
ing out referral cards for neighbors and friends of se-
niors. Then we can get the cards back to the agencies
that can address the needs."
The sheriffs department also plans to hold train-
ing sessions for law enforcement and emergency per-
sonnel and those who work with seniors on identifying
and addressing problems, said Morris, and enhancing
the quality of life for seniors. Another facet of the pro-
gram is to hold town meetings throughout the county.
"It takes more personnel and funding to have a
successful program," noted Morris. "We are talking to
local business sponsors and will pursue grant funds."
Another component of the program is the S.A.L.T.
(Seniors And Lawmen Together) Council which will
serve as Triad's advisory/advocacy council. The coun-
cil will identify and participate in community activities
focusing on the crime-related needs of seniors.
These activities include crime prevention pro-
grams, information on how to avoid victimization,
home security information, personal safety tips, infor-
mation on current frauds and scams, elder abuse pre-
vention, reassurance programs, victim assistance and
training in coping with solicitors and salesmen.
'The Neighborhood Watch Coalition will become the
S.A.L.T. Council," said Morris. "The coalition is made up
of representatives of all county Neighborhood Watches.
The first work session of the S.A.L.T. Council is
scheduled for 10 a.m. on April 11 at the sheriff s com-
munity center in the DeSoto Square Mall.
Innocent plea entered by former Holmes Beach officer
Charles Anderson, 36, of Bradenton, entered a
plea of innocent at a Friday arraignment on charges
of leaving the scene of an accident with injury and
obstructing an officer without violence.
Charges were filed by the State Attorney's Of-
fice in March. The charges are the result of a Christ-
mas night motorcycle accident in which Anderson
lost control of his motorcycle. The accident left
Anderson's passenger, Roxanne Winstead, with a
broken arm and injured vertebrae.

signed after the incident A jury trial is set for July.
Mary in the red truck ... delivers!
By Cynthia Finn
What's black and white and red all over?
On any Wednesday, that would be Mary
Stockmaster of Holmes Beach, cruising the resi-
dential streets-of the Island in her glossy red Chevy
Regency pickup, getting all the news out that The
Islander Bystander prints.
"Say, Ma," goes one half of a north end couple,
"is that the little red truck I hear coming with our
A little bit better of hearing, Ma's already out
in the driveway, waiting for Mary to come 'round
"I get so many waves and thumbs up," says
Mary. "The friendly Island people are one of the
perks of the job."
April Fool's landmark
The job is the weekly rolling, bagging and dis-
tribution of 3,200 copies of The Islander Bystander
for home delivery.
April marks Mary's two-year anniversary on
the job. She's seen the route grow from 1,500 cop-
ies. At the current pace, that's rolling some 166,400
papers a year. No joke.
An April Fool's joke helps Mary remember
when she started with the paper. When she was the
newest gal on The Islander staff, some family
members called to complain that they hadn't re-
ceived their paper yet.
"I I'm new," Mary stammered. "I'll be right

tion, notes her publisher-slash-boss, the very same per-
son who commissioned this tribute to Anniversary
"I love my boss," says Mary. "I love my job. I love
the paper. I read it straight through every week. Often
twice. It's the best little paper around!"
Mary makes no extra pay for her comments.
That's just how she really is. Attractive, fun-loving,
hard-working and enthusiastic.
Her well-lighted, cheerful home is an indication
of Mary's upbeat attitude. With her husband of 16
years, Dave, and 10-year-old son, Zachary, Mary
thoroughly enjoys Island living. With her immedi-
ate and extended family, she loves beaching, boat-
ing and fishing.
"We always knew we wanted to be right here,"
Mary says. "We're here for life!"
Working gal's life
Mary says she's "never been an office person."
Her work career has run the gamut, from being a
forklift driver at age 17, to interior painting at the
Holiday Inn Airport-Marina.
Her work life today is the full day she puts in ev-
ery Wednesday for The Islander Bystander. "And it
is a full day," she admits.
The rolling and bagging, down in her well-or-
dered garage, takes five hours. Then she's on the
road for another three or four. Mary's currently as-
sisted by Twyla and Tom Brooks. Twyla helps with
the bagging; Tom rides and tosses.
"When I first started," says Mary, "I'd be just
exhausted by the end of the route. Today, I've got
it down and by evening I'm really cheery."
Talk radio's the thing for Mary when out on the
road. Bob Lassiter, AM 620. "Boy does he keep us
laughing," says Mary.
"This isn't a job for everyone," Anniversary
Mary offers. "But for me, well, I just love it."
And by the time The Islander Bystander read-
ers have gotten this far in the story, Mary's home
with her family again, watching the sunset, eating
the ritual Wednesday night pizza.
Thanks, Mary. You really do deliver.

Anna Maria ostrich?
History repeats itself- often.
It was like deja vu all over again last week.
Some commissioners expressed a desire to re-hire
Zimmerman late in the week but when it came down
to the wire on Tuesday, the previous week's firecracker
went over like a dud.
Anna Maria City Commissioners ignored public
sentiment and glazed over recommendations from
builders and contractors to re-hire former public works
director Bill Zimmerman.
It seems a shame to lose a good employee as a re-
sult of communication problems between a new mayor
and commission members.
What happened to plans and proposals from indi-
vidual commission members to resurrect Zimmerman
over the weekend?
No one's talking. Again. Unless of course there's
a conversation going on amongst the ostrich heads in
those holes in the sand.
Jobs for fishers?
Problem: Marker 48, alongside Cortez just south of
the Cortez Bridge in the Intracoastal Waterway, is a
trouble spot. Serious shoaling around the marker has
experienced boaters scratching their heads, trying to
decide to go left or right around the navigational aid.
It was replaced last week after what could have
been a serious accident that knocked out the stationary
What used to be a tiny, insignificant island in the bay
was lost years ago. Mother nature wants to return the area
to its former status and, at low tide, her progress is more
and more apparent.
Solution: Cortez guide service. As a navigational aid
for shoaled channels and waterways throughout our area,
knowledgeable Cortez fishermen, out of work on July 1
due to the recent passage of a bill prohibiting net fishing
in waters within three miles of shore, could be commis-
sioned and positioned near troubled areas to guide unwit-
ting boaters safely on their meandering way.
Their flat-bottom, tunnel-hull mullet boats can act
as navigation stations in even the most shallow water
and fishers will be able to supplement state financial
assistance with sales of bait and maps.
Who better to act on behalf of sport fishermen,
saving their boats and their lives from the dangers of
navigation than the Cortez commercial fishermen put
out of work by the very amendment sport fishermen
fought so hard to pass.
Just kidding but who has a better idea for retrain-
ing fourth- and fifth-generation commercial fishermen and
providing jobs in keeping with their heritage?

Is there a problem with decorum and respect at
Holmes Beach council meetings. You bet there is!
I applaud your "Opinion" stating such in your
March 23 issue. The recent altercation is one of many
in the council which you've reported. But, wait a
minute. Isn't this the same Islander Bystander which
endorsed three candidates in its March 9 issue, two of
them being incumbents? Upon generalities, the paper's
opinion is its own.
However, as the communities' newspaper of
record, you indicated in your March 9 issue "it is our
business and our responsibility to inform the voters
based on our first-hand knowledge of the candidates."
If your paper has such a strong opinion on the lack of
decorum and respect among council members, then why
was this opinion not brought to face prior to the election?
Why didn't you inform the voters of this "first-
hand" knowledge.? Why did you endorse two candi-
dates for re-election and within two weeks denounce
council members you so recently endorsed?
Your endorsement added fuel to an already hot fire!
In the future, let's not burn our candles at both
ends! Looks like we were duped again.

Publisher's note: The lack of decorum at Holmes
Beach City Council meetings and the resulting criticism
from The Islander Bystander was directed at one particu-
lar commissioner who was not up for re-election this year,
Carol Whitmore, and the previous council chairperson
who retired from office with this election. We suggested
there would be little change as to how meetings were run
- even in spite of the election unless a parliamentar-
ian was elected as council chairperson. The intended im-
plication was that Whitmore would not make a suitable
chairperson. We apologize for any misunderstanding and
feel confident in relying on Councilman (now Council
Chairman) Luke Courtney to accomplish the task of main-

he doesn't bite it off. Remember, it is the tourists and

Publisher's note: Reaction to "Native Season"
was mixed. Most Island residents with an opinion said
they found the article humorous while some visitors ex-
pressed distaste. We apologize if the article, intended
as humorous satire, offended anyone. And for the cu-
rious, Roat is a native born in Manatee County and

Thanks to all for Bradenton
Beach beautification help
I would like to thank Chief Andy Price and the
members of the fire company for their fine cooperation
given in the tree planting and watering project in and
for the City of Bradenton Beach.
The donation of the 40 trees by the Kiwanis
Club, along with the 12 volunteer workers who
planted them and Chief Price's efforts to water them
are very much appreciated.
Thank you all for your help in making Bradenton

THOSE WERE THE FAYS
Part 2, The Conquistadors
by June Alder
Juan Ponce de Leon,
who may have stopped
off at Anna Maria
Island in 1521.
DID HE OR DIDN'T HE?
Toward the end of his life an embit-
tered Christopher Columbus feeling
shunted by a crowd of discoverers sail-
ing his seas, landing in his islands and
stealing his future discoveries wrote:
"They all made fun of my plan then;
now even tailors wish to discover."
One in this "crowd" was Juan Ponce
de Leon, who had accompanied Colum-
bus on his second voyage to the New
World in 1493. He went on to conquer
San Juan (Puerto Rico) was appointed
its governor. But Columbus's son Diego
Nothing daunted, in 1512 Ponce
asked for and received from King
Ferdinand a three-year "patent" to settle
Bimini (or Bininy), an island to the
north he had heard about. It was irm
mensely wealthy, the Indians said.
Antonio de Herrera's history of
Juan Ponce's expedition records that he
set sail from Puerto Rico on the after-
noon of March 3, 1513. His pilot was
none other than Anton de Alaminos,
Columbus's guide on his second voyage
and reputedly the best pilot in the Indies.
De Alaminos steered the three ships -
the Santiago, the Santa Maria de la
Consolacion and the San Cristobal up
the east coast of what was thought to be
a huge island. If this was Bimini, it was
a disappointment to Juan Ponce. It was
flat and swampy though verdant.
Oh well, make the best of it, Ponce
thought. So at a spot near what is now
Cape Canaveral, he splashed ashore and
planted a cross on the beach, ceremoni-
ally taking possession of the land for his
It was Easter Holy Week, time of
the Feast of Flowers. So Ponce named
the land La Florida. He did a bit more
exploration among the Florida Keys,
then went home.
Ponce spent the next eight years tak-
ing care of the King's business, like sub-
duing the feisty Carib Indians and occu-
Then in February 1521 Ponce
wrote to Emperor Charles V (succes-
sor to Ferdinand) stating his intention
to establish a colony on La Florida and
do some more exploration. He left
Puerto Rico within the month with two
ships loaded up with colonists. They
included farmers, tradesmen, soldiers
and Catholic priests. And horses,
cattle, sheep and swine.
Where would this new settlement
We've gotten to the nitty gritty
now. The truth is historians haven't
agreed on the truth of the matter. Two
places have long vied for the honor of
being founded by Ponce de Leon:
Charlotte Harbor and our very own lo-
cality at the bottom of Tampa Bay.
Jack Leffingwell, a lifelong student
of Florida history who grew up in
Bradenton in the 1880s and lived for
years in Bradenton Beach, maintained
that either Shaw's Point (beSoto Na-
tional Monument) or Perico Island was
Ponce's stopping place. Jack used to
write using capital letters that it
was not St. Augustine but Bradenton
that deserved the title of OLDEST
CITY IN THE UNITED STATES.
At any rate, somewhere along the
Gulf Coast space was cleared for a
town and houses were built. But the
Indians didn't want to see their
neighborhood go to pot, so they
chased the colonists off. There was a
skirmish on a nearby small island
(Egmont Key?) in which one of
Ponce's men was felled by an arrow.
He was probably the first European
killed in combat within the bound-
aries of what is now the United
Ponce got his people safely to
Cuba. But that's as far as he got. He
had been wounded in the thigh in the
Indian fight. The wound festered and
he died of it in Puerto Principe, Cuba,
in July 1521. He was never to know the
magnitude of his discovery.
You may have noticed I've made
no mention of the old medieval Foun-
tain of Youth legend. That's because
there's no solid evidence that Ponce
believed in it. What he was motivated
by was glory and gold just like all
the other Conquistadors.
And that wealthy island of Bimini?
There was no such thing or maybe
the Indians were referring to the
Yucatan which later would indeed en-
rich Spain. Of course, the tiny island of
Bimini that cruise ships visit these days
has nothing at all to do with Juan Ponce

thoughts of a model, or the importance of smiling
By Katharine Wight
Islander School Correspondent
It's the smell of new clothes, perfume and excite-
It's the sound of rustling fabrics and last-minute
calls for makeup and hair. It's the murmurs from the
audience, rich with anticipation.
The microphone makes the announcer's voice
sound tiny as he struggles to be heard over the hypnotic
beat of music and the calls of stagehands and fashion
It's blinding stage lights and swirls of colors and
the irridescent flash of camera bulbs.
It's fashion scents. (Not to be confused with fash-
ion sense.) It's fashion sounds and fashion sights.
It's a fashion show!
I have just been given the chance to star in a fash-
ion show at school. Although I've never modeled be-
fore, this is fairly low-key and it's going to be rich with
excitement and fun.
I realize most fashion shows aren't held in the King
Middle School gymnasium after school, with the locker
rooms designated as dressing rooms, but for me, this
Cartoon not funny to
It is more important than ever that residents and
especially the voters become knowledgeable about
the administration of city business.
We need to get to know those whom we have
elected to office. We can do this by attending com-
mission meetings. We can then form our own opin-
ions and not be dependent upon hearsay and gossip.
It is expected that newspapers will base their
reporting upon facts and not stoop to attempts to
influence their readers by resorting to hearsay and
biased opinion. A good example of what I am allud-
ing to is the cartoon on the Focus page of the other
Island paper published March 29.
Those of us who have lived here for a while
caught the message. It inferences were clear, ex-
tremely unfair, negative, division and mean-spirited.
There is an odor of big city dirty politics which is
most unbecoming to the village of Anna Maria.
When employed by big city politicians, it usually
means that someone is seeking power and intends to
get it no matter who gets hurt. It causes us to won-
der who is standing in the wings here.
It has long been understood that a community
newspaper is in a position to provide leadership. We
expect high standards of civility. It behooves all of
us to remember that it is the pacemakers who are
blessed, not those who sow the seeds of rancor and
Lucy Larzelere, Anna Maria City
Males versus McChesney
Male chauvinism is interfering with democracy
in the City of Anna Maria. It has been clearly mani-
fested both before and after the resignation of the
public works director.
Reports in three different newspapers written by
three different men all confused rather than clarified
the facts. Misinformed reporting in all cases gave
the impression that blame is to be shared by our re-
cently elected Mayor Dottie McChesney. Nothing
could be further from the truth.
I have listened to the tape and spoken with sev-
eral of those present at the special meeting held
March 17 to evaluate the public works director. He
tendered his resignation before the evaluation.. This
was a surprise to the mayor. It was addressed to the
city clerk instead of the mayor. Mayor McChesney
did not ask for his resignation. The simple fact is
that he would not accept her authority.
SThe real threat, however, comes from Commis-
sioner Doug Wolfe who displayed anger, hatred and
rage in his violent outburst at the meeting. Dottie
may as well be Paris.
I'm venturing onto the runway for the first time.
When I emerge from the dim dressing room full of
frantic models and dressers into an immense, brightly
lit room, I won't be thinking of where I really am. At
the moment I walk out to cheers from my classmates,
I'm sure my head will be in the clouds.
The weeks before my fashion show are filled with
"shopping." Three stores very generously agree to lend
us clothes for the two-part show (casual wear and for-
Ten pairs of models will spend the two weeks prior
to the debut in a frenzy, rushing from store to store,
getting fitted for tuxedos (guys) and selecting dresses
(gals.) Once I find a very funky tie-dyed dress and a
floor-length white gown all I have left to do is worry.
And worry I do probably until five minutes be-
fore the show. Then I panic. But I don't have time to
freak and back out. I'm going on now!
I smile and step in front of the audience. Wow.
There must be 300 people out there! I see my friends
in the back corer. Hey, they're holding up numbers to
rate me! And that rat Brittany only gave me a 9.9!
and others were fearful that he was going to inflict
bodily harm on her. Wolfe seems bent on fulfilling
his prediction that Dottie's election as mayor, "will
be a disaster for the city."
This is sex discrimination pure and simple. His
war against this refined lady constitutes malfea-
sance in office. Malfeasance means "wrong doing
or misconduct by a public official."
The cartoon in the Dolphin, March 29, was in
poor taste and only confirms that poor journalism
has contributed to Mayor McChesney's injury.
Even though Dottie has been badly abused, she
is still the same good, capable, problem-solver who
the people elected to office just a few short weeks
ago. Good citizens as well as the press should as-
sure her of support. She is not a career politician.
Her work is important to the future of our commu-
nity. Dottie is worthy of dignity and respect.
Peace can only come to city hall when the war
against democracy and its processes is stopped.

Players' theater and
production are jewels
My wife and I had a most pleasant experience
last evening. We attended the Island Players' pro-
duction, "Other People's Money."
The theater is a jewel as there are no bad seats
and the performance was very well done.
Ruth and I have attended many summer barn
theater productions in Michigan. We were also
active in the English-speaking "Santiago Stage"
when I worked in Santiago, Chile.
We get to Anna Maria Island once a year and
certainly hope to be able to see another production.

"Baseball is where memory gathers,
And unlike any other game;
The defense holds the ball.
There is no clock.
The ball doesn't score,
The man does.
And to score,
The man comes home.
Home is the center ofeverything."
Ken Burns, describing baseball.
The truth is John Jordan "Buck" O'Neil didn't re-
ally steal home to Sarasota as he had so many times
His arrival and stay in Sarasota last month was a tri-
umph a loud triumph for simple right, good, decency
and all the other things we claim to believe in every day.
Buck is a native son never appreciated, or even
noticed in Sarasota, until his saintliness was revealed
to all during the television documentary "Baseball." A
saintliness revealed over and over, especially when he
asked all present that rainy morning at the Sarasota
baseball fields to join hands and sing with him, "The
greatest thing in all my life is loving you."
"This is a man who has changed my life by his
positive example," producer/director/writer Burns told
Sarasotans. "We've learned to say no but we've
forgotten how to say yes. You're saying yes here today
to a man who has quietly said yes all his life. He's a
hero, my hero, Buck O'Neil."
The discovery of Buck O'Neil was a chance for
Sarasota to right an old wrong, and Sarasota did that.
Dozens came to the dedication of the Buck O'Neil Base-
ball Complex. Hundreds came to a luncheon in his honor.
Thousands came to his one-man high school graduation.
The truth is, however, the whole series of ceremo-
nies, meals, visits and lectures was about more than
Buck O'Neil. It was really about the history of baseball.
"Baseball is a story of race," Burns said.
A dozen or more elderly black men, veterans of the
Negro League and none of them nearly as famous as Buck
O'Neil, also gathered in Sarasota for the ceremonies. Like
Buck, they basked in the glow of having people white
people remember their deeds and their day.
Buck put it well, at his graduation from Sarasota
High School. Sixty nine years late.
"One of the things that makes me feel best is know-
ing that the grandchildren and great-grandchildren of
the very people who denied me high school as a child
are the very people here today.
"So things do get better." And he meant that for all
Buck O'Neil needn't ever steal home again.
Buck was safe at home.

Usable vision is a wish come true
By Cynthia Finn
When Estelle Roberts of Holmes Beach was 18
years old, she attended a small carnival in her Michi-
gan hometown of Alpena. The gaiety turned to tragedy
when a ferris-wheel belt snapped, acting as a lance.
Roberts was hospitalized for a year. The belt
caused permanent damage to her right eye, possibly
exploding the eyeball, and she has been blind in that
eye ever since.
That accident was 64 years ago. Today, thanks to
the willingness and skill of a Bradenton ophthalmolo-
gist, Roberts has usable vision in her right eye.
In all those 64 years, at least 30 doctors told Rob-
erts there was nothing to be done. She and her husband,
Vic, resigned themselves to her semi-blind condition.
But, as humble hard-working folks like the Roberts
will certify, where there's a will, there's definitely a way.
This past January, Vic went to see Dr. Jonathan A.
Adler for his cataract condition. Adler was also asked
to examine the cataract in Estelle's left eye. An inspec-
tion of the blinded right eye prompted Adler to offer
Estelle a glimmer of hope.
"He didn't promise us anything," says Estelle. "He
just thought he could take that cataract off in my blind
eye so I could maybe see something."
Vic's cataract surgery was successful and then it
was Estelle's turn. On March 14, in an hour-and-40-
minute procedure, Estelle underwent surgery at the
Manatee Eye Clinic for removal of what Adler calls a
The Robertses have the cataract in a vial at their
home. In an estimated 2,500 surgeries, Adler says "it's
the biggest cataract I've ever removed. It's unbeliev-
"Look at this!" says Vie, never-minding Estelle's
shushing. "This is what he took out of her eye. It's a

One finger, two fingers
On March 15, after 24 hours of anticipation and
post-surgery discomfort, the aluminum cover was re-
moved from Estelle's eye.
Vic can hardly contain his excitement, even weeks
later. "The nurse held up one finger; Estelle could see
it! Then two fingers. And then she could even see the
A March 23 examination by Adler revealed steady
progress. Estelle is still in pain and surgical stitches are
yet to dissolve. But the partial vision, what Adler calls
"usable vision more peripheral vision," remains and
should remain. For the first time in 64 years, Estelle has
sight from both eyes.
Estelle offers that she doesn't "show emotions
"Yeah," Vic grins. After nearly 61 years of mar-
riage, Vic knows Estelle's ways. "The rest of us are
more enthused than she is."
Estelle needs no help whatsoever in describing Dr.
Adler. "He's the best doctor there ever was. I'm so grate-
ful. I really praise him." She's already referred two friends.
Still in pain from the eye surgery and from a spine
operation two years ago, Estelle rests in her favorite arm-
chair. "I'm so happy," she says. "I always said I'd like to
see out of both of my eyes before I die. I'm getting my

cool off your beach-blown brain.
Leffis Key is a 30-acre site owned
by Manatee County. The island is lo-
cated on the Sarasota Bay shoreline on
the southeast tip of Bradenton Beach,
directly adjacent to Coquina Beach.
About 2,500,000 people visit Coquina
Beach annually, making it one of the
most heavily utilized recreational areas
in the Manatee /Sarasota area.
The park, with its boardwalks, trails
and 40-foot sand mound, offers a spec-
tacular glimpse of Anna Maria Sound.
Admission to the park open from sun-
rise to sunset daily is free. Be sure to
lock your car if you drive to help foil a rash
of car burglaries that take place there.
The disposal of dredge spoil mate-
rial at the center of Leffis Key years
ago destroyed approximately 15 acres
of native mangroves, with significant
declines in mangrove coverage on the
perimeter of Leffis Key. The central

land. This manmade connection, creat-
ing a peninsula, altered tidal circulation
around the island and impacted wildlife.
The Coquina BayWalk habitat resto-
ration and enhancement project was sub-
mitted by Manatee County as an Early
Action Demonstration Project of the
Sarasota Bay National Estuary Program in
1990. After competing with other projects
nationwide, Coquina BayWalk at Leffis
Key was ranked second in the nation and
selected for funding.
Initial clearing and exotic species re-
moval took place in summer 1991. Exca-
vation of intertidal pools and tidal inlets
and boardwalk construction began in
spring 1992. A footbridge was installed to
provide visitor access to Coquina
BayWalk. Fill material from the key and
adjacent north and south shorelines (Co-
quina Beach Bayside Park) was used to
create dunes to serve as visual and audio
barriers to road traffic. The site was reveg-
etated with salt marsh, intertidal and up-
land plants in fall 1992, and interpre-
tive signage installed last year.
Manatee County schools use
Coquina BayWalk as an environ-
mental education site, in conjunc-
tion with existing marine and es-
tuarine curriculum, to inform stu-
dents about the estuarine system
and the need to preserve its re-

The Anna Maria Island Trolley
runs three round-trip tours Tuesday
through Saturday, two from the north
end of the Anna Maria Island to St.
Armands Circle just south of Longboat
Key and one mid-day trip from St.
Armands Circle to Anna Maria and
Passengers ride free if they show a
room key or hotel receipt from a par-
ticipating motel sponsor. Without the
room key or receipt, the cost is $1 per
ride with children under six riding for
free. If you ride to a participating busi-
ness sponsor, a receipt from the spon-
sor gets you a free return trip.
Passengers are encouraged to ar-
rive at least 10 minutes prior to a
scheduled pick up due to fluctuations
in traffic and bridge openings.
Two stops connect with the Siesta
Key Trolley the 10:40 am. and the
4:40 p.m., both at St. Armand's Inn,
But beware! You need to make
plans for transportation other than the
trolley to get back to Anna Maria if
you take the second run, arriving at
4:40 p.m. on St. Armands, and you get
off. After 4:40 p.m., there is no other
return trolley from St. Armands to

If you're remotely interested in what's going on as
far as bands forming and breaking up and forming,
we've got the scoop.
Rumors last week were that Blindside was quitting.
"Not so," says bass player/spokesperson/booking agent
As the old saying goes, "Where there's smoke,
there's fire." Something was amiss.
Now we find an evolution has taken place.
New band. New name. "No Exit."
Of the new group, Steve Vandergriff and Terry Helm,
both on guitar and vocals, are former Blindsiders.
New players with No Exit: Jon York, original bass
player from Rocky and the Beatheathens; Chris
Corrigan, formerly with the Hammerheads and Chan-
dler Bros., on drums.
New Exit replaces Blindside at Turtles on Sundays
in April except April 9 when Stranger appears for a
concert-like performance at 11 p.m. Tickets for
Stranger are limited due to occupancy limitations
naturally. Get 'em quick.
So now what gives with Syx and Terry Harris, bass
and lead guitar players from Blindside, also the guts of
what was one of the area's most popular bands, the
What's the true scoop on Blindside?
Syx says he officially owns the name "Blindside,
- registered and all that and we're just cutting back
and playing a few top-paying clubs a month."
Blindside is undergoing a major change obvi-
Stranger than life
Appearing one night only Stranger Sunday, April
9, at 11 p.m. at Turtles Bar & Grill. Tickets are $10
with limited availability due to seating and space.
ously but they're not quitting. They're just cutting
back. The players in the band want to have lives. Har-
ris has three kids and a day job Syx is going to school
to become an electronics engineer. And their long-time
drummer, Mark Houghteling, has a day job too.
Blindside will still be Blindside and they're only
looking to replace one guitar/vocal position. However,
Blindside doesn't have any dates scheduled on the Is-
land and New Exit does.
Confused yet? Or just don't care?
We'll all have to develop a new attitude.

papers, Gib Bergquist, came by the office of The Islander
Bystander to sign his new book for one of our "crackers."
Graphic artist David Clough is a proud Florida
cracker, fourth generation in fact, and the inscription is
most appropriate. "From one cracker to another."
Surely as Clough reads the columns woven with
tales of old Florida, the stories will blend with reminis-
cences passed down by his grandparents.
The visit sparked a recollection of the Dr. Pepper
commercial song, and so we'll leave you humming a few
bars as you head to our office to pick up a copy of the
book, on sale now at The Islander Bystander, 5408 Ma-
rina Drive in the Island Shopping Center, Holmes Beach.
"I'm a cracker, you're a cracker, wouldn't you like
to be a cracker too?"
For $19.95, plus tax, you can share cracker tales
with friends and family.
We eat, therefore ...
Lots of Island and Island-area restaurants have
delicious plans for Easter. It's the last hurrah at any
restaurant that caters to visitors, and doesn't everyone
cater to visitors in one way or another?
Your company has to eat so peruse the pages of
restaurant advertising in this issue for some very spe-
cial offerings. You really shouldn't have to cook for
hours and hours.
So, put the beach on your list of things to do. Some
simple R&R.for the family.
There should be plenty of time to take in the Sun-
rise Service at the Manatee County Public Beach, at-
tend a church service, visit an area restaurant with
special holiday offerings and relax at the beach for
the full 15-30SPF time period of one hour.
Make the beach part of your ritual. It's the reason
we're all here and it deserves your thoughtful apprecia-
tion. Be thankful for our grains of sand.

You can sell the business to another electrician, but
you can't take the founder out of Service Electric.
Apparently that's the case with Brendan Greene,
who founded the well-
known electrical business
.. '17 years ago and sold it to
Doyle Douglas last year.
Celebrating one year
under new ownership,
Greene is still playing a ma-
jor role in the company,
serving in a public relations
and advisory capacity.
"The association of
Greene age and youth is an advan-
tage to the company," says
Greene of the Holmes Beach operation. "He (Douglas)
has the youth and I've got the age."
Although representing the younger aspect of the
company, Douglas' resume boasts a wealth of experi-
ence as an electrician with over 12 years working for
another Island electrical company before he bought
Greene's outfit and realized the American dream of
owning his own business.
"We have full knowledge of the electrical indus-
try," Greene says of Service Electric, emphasizing that
the company is geared toward fast response when down
-time can cost commercial clients loads of money and
residential clients tons of headaches.
"We're service oriented," Douglas says of the com-
pany that handles both commercial and residential wiring
jobs. "All of our trucks are set up for service calls -
people can call us 24 hours a day and we're there. Three-
fourths of our employees live on the Island."
Keeping Islanders happy was always a goal of
Greene when he owned the business, he says, and noth-
ing has changed now that its under the leadership of
"We've got a list of satisfied customers," Greene
says. "Service Electric's reputation on the Island is

Bread promotion cuts
big slice for schools
The community rallied around a special promotion to as-
sist public schools in seven Florida counties including Mana-
tee in January and February.
The promotion, entitled "Whitewheat For Education," and
sponsored by Flowers Baking Company of Bradenton and
Publix Supermarkets, earned more than $22,000 for founda-
tions supporting county public school systems.
For every loaf of whitewheat bread purchased from Jan. 9
through Feb. 18, Flowers Baking Company donated five cents
to their county's respective Education Foundation.
The Education Foundation program in each county as-
sists public schools through scholarships, teacher grants,
special support for at-risk students and recognition of exem-
plary teachers and students.

ITrtle changes may mean human changes, too
By Bob Ardren
Chuck Shumard, patron saint of the Anna Maria
Turtle Watch program, has a big dilemma. It's the State
of Florida and the state of the art.
Specifically, Shumard's conundrum is that the
Florida Department of Environmental Protection has
decided that, although our local turtle hatchery program
is wildly successful, they don't want to let it continue
as it has any more.
The state is threatening not to issue permits for this
summers' Island sea turtle program.
Shumard, approaching his 10th year in the program
- five as the program's director is threatening to
quit if forced to do it DEP's way. This is a sad situa-
tion especially for the sea turtles.
No, it's not a matter of money after all, Shumard
and his many volunteers are all volunteers it's a
matter of methods. State of the art, as it were,
Shumard's methods are old fashioned according to the
DEP. To be honest about it, Mote Marine Laboratory's
Sea Turtle Program seems to agree with DEP.

Sea turtle hatcheries are a tradition on Anna Maria
Island. Shumard and his organization collected more
than 13,000 turtle eggs from nests on the beaches last
year, took them to nurseries and hatched out more than
11,000 baby turtles.
That's a great record by any standards. On top of
that, there's the public relations value of having the
public able to sometimes watch the release of baby
turtles, thus building support for the Turtle Watch pro-
gram, not to mention support for the turtles and some
support for the human spirit.
But now DEP wants Shumard to get in line with the
rest of the local turtle programs in Florida by dropping the
nursery idea and leaving the eggs where they're laid. This
policy change would bring the Island's program in line
with what Mote is doing, and is also a technique used on
the Manatee County portion of Longboat Key.
Orville Clayton runs the turtle program on the
north end of Longboat has for 23 years and while
he used to use nurseries "back when we didn't have any
beach," he's now a believer in the new techniques. For
one thing, according to Clayton, leaving eggs where
they're laid provides a varied environment for the
Like alligators, the sex of sea turtles is determined
by the incubation temperature. Cooler temperatures
produce males, warmer temps produce female turtles.
"We don't know what the sex ratio of sea turtles is
in nature," Clayton tells me. "That's why we've de-
cided it's best to leave the nests where we find them.
On top of that, the less you handle the animals, the
healthier they're going to be.
"We're just trying to do what's best for the animals
- all of us," Clayton says.
Down in Sarasota County, Jerris Foote heads up
the Sea Turtle Program at Mote. She tells me they
found a total of 1,160 nests last year, and opened 977

to find a total of 101,829 eggs.
According to Foote's follow-up study, 78,379 of
those eggs hatched. Virtually all of the nests were left
in place, and of the 1,160 identified, 186 were de-
stroyed for some reason. The most common causes are
raccoons, birds, fire ants, storms and stupid people.
Like Clayton, Foote uses no nurseries.
To be as honest as I know how to be, I don't know
the answer. Maybe there isn't a "right" answer, but I do
know my heart lies with Shumard.
So maybe there is a compromise.
After all, the welfare of the sea turtle is the real con-
cern here, not just who's right or who can push around the
other guy. Don't forget, even the greatest of all our saints
ultimately won by bowing to the power of His state.
Perhaps DEP can recognize the long tradition of
nurseries on the Island and honor Shumard's request to
continue them one more year as he trains his helpers in
the newer techniques. After that, perhaps he could be
permitted to move those nests clearly in danger. That
would allow the public to still experience seeing baby
turtles begin their life-long journey into the sea.
It would also recognize the tens of thousands of
turtles saved by Shumard's group's efforts over the
years. Good can come from that.
At the same time, our friend Chuck Shumard could
recognize that ideas, techniques and "state of the art"
change over time. Often times, as we see in the press, they
eventually change back, of course. Perhaps Shumard and
his group could work with the DEP to accommodate the
most recent change here on the Island.
Saints after all, unlike most of us, have the ability
to put their egos aside and carry on their work.
With the first turtle nestings of the season just a
couple weeks away, it's time to put the turtles first and
everything else second. It would be a tragedy if every-
thing both Shumard AND the state biologists have
worked toward over the years is wasted because some
egos won't allow compromise.
Here's hoping, for the sake of the sea turtles, our
local trial has this happy ending.
See you next week.

Snook, kingfish top angling action this week
By Capt Mike Heistand
Snook are starting to become more prevalent as the
weather and water warms, with bigger linesiders being
reported in the backwater. Offshore, kingfish have
started their run.
Kevin at the Rod and Reel Pier said pier fishers
are catching redfish, black drum, flounder, sheepshead
and a few snook at night. Luther Classar took the fish-
of-the-week at the pier with his 28-inch, 8 1/4-pound
trout caught Saturday night.
Dave at the Anna Maria City Pier said 12-year-
old J.D. Hapner caught a 36-inch snook off the pier last
week. Other less-fortunate anglers are catching sheep-
shead and an occasional mackerel.

assistance from Venice police. Upon arriving near the
scene, a vessel was seen departing at a high rate of
speed. No vessels were found to be in distress.
March 24, Search and rescue /assistance. Station

gies and flounder. The six-hour trip averaged 100 head
of Key West grunts, porgies and black sea bass. The
nine-hour trip averaged 60 head mangrove snapper,
porgies, red and black grouper and scamp. The Bay
fishing trip averaged 50 head of Key West grunts.
Capt. Zack on the Dee Jay II said snook are the
best bet he's offering for anglers. Clare Wyvill of Avon
Park caught a 20-pounder on 8-pound-test line last
week, and a father-and-son team of Tom and Tim lim-
ited-out on linesiders Friday, with two of the fish bet-

Capt. Dave Pinkham said the fish of the week are
kingfish, with schools of four- to 20-pounds being
found about 10 miles offshore from the Island. Other
offshore fishing features grouper and amberjack.
Chris at Galati Yacht Basin said kingfish are off-
shore around the seven-mile reef, with trolling and live
bait the best bet to hook into the king run. Cobia are
thick on the offshore structures. In the backwater, Chris
said to look for reds.
Carl at Perico Island Bait & Tackle said wade
fishers are hooking into lots of snook around the man-
grove islands near Palma Sola, as well as some nice-
