DEP permit readied for 'mega-bridge'


By Jim Hanson
Islander correspondent
The final state permit for a high-rise bridge at
Manatee Avenue will be issued.
That word comes from Ken Huntington, in charge
of permitting for the Florida Department of Environ-
mental Protection.
His staff in Tampa is drafting an "intent to issue"
for the permit to the Florida Department of Transpor-
tation, he said Tuesday, now that "we have wrapped up
other agencies' comments."
An administrative hearing into the need for such a
bridge is to be sought by the Save Anna Maria, Inc.,
organization, which has fought the high bridge virtu-


Turtle program


continues ...

without


hatcheries
By Paul Roat
The Island's Turtle Watch program will continue
this loggerhead nesting season, but some so-called
tried-and-true practices will be changed.
Specifically, the turtle hatcheries in Anna Maria
and Bradenton Beach are no longer permitted.
Florida Department of Environmental Protection
turtle expert David Arnold told about 50 turtle aficio-
nados last week that hatcheries have been viewed with
disfavor by state officials.
Turtle nest protection should be evaluated on a
"nest-by-nest" basis to determine which sea turtle nests
are in jeopardy from predators or man.
If a nest is deemed to be in peril, it may be relo-
cated, Arnold said. "Peril" is defined as coming from
hungry raccoons, highly populated and traveled
beaches such as Coquina where the eggs could be dis-
turbed by errant beachgoers, a nest illuminated by
bright lights or a nest too close to the surf line.
The anti-hatchery approach touted by state officials
evolved, Arnold said, in light of new scientific data
about turtles. "Our whole approach now is to attempt
to imitate nature," Arnold explained.
"Turtles have been on the planet for eons," he said,
"by putting eggs all over the beach in the low, middle
and high parts of the sand. By taking the eggs to a high
part of the beach [where most hatcheries are located]
is not as natural. Different nests in different parts of the
beach produce hatchlings of all different sizes, weights
and shapes, and the environment determines the size

ally since its inception.

Six-month process
The hearing is the state's mechanism for appealing
a decision by an arm of state government. SAM's at-
torney, David Levin, said a decision takes at least six
months from the date of a request for such a review.
The hearing will go into the entire bridge issue
from standpoints of safety, the environmental impacts
and esthetics, SAM officials have said, and DOT will
have to prove such a bridge is needed and would be
safe. SAM contends the 65-foot-high, fixed span would
be less safe in a storm than the present drawbridge.
No date has been set for such an appeal or the


and weight of the hatchlings.
"Our whole program now is to attempt to imitate
nature," he said.
Arnold summarized the new philosophy by DEP
for turtles as a discretionary policy: use discretion to
determine whether every nest is safe or not.
"We are adamantly against hatcheries and don't
want hatcheries used as a 'default' for any nest that is
at risk," he said. "If you need to move nests, that is fine,
but we want to get away from moving all the nests to
one or two areas on the beach."
Turtle Watch Director Chuck Shumard, long a
hatchery advocate, reluctantly went along with Arnold.
"I think we have to compromise," Shumard said.
"We'll have to leave more nests out, and relocate the
nests in danger."
Turtle expert Dr. Anne Maylen said only two
hatcheries have been approved out of 125 turtle watch
program permits issued in Florida, one in Broward
County and another near Miami.
The Broward County hatchery was approved, she
said, because of the large number of beachgoers who
frequent the shore of Fort Lauderdale. Miami's hatch-
ery was permitted because of incidents of people dig-
ging up the nests and eating the eggs.
Arnold and Maylen both agreed the popular hatchling
release events should continue for any relocated nests
because of its educational value. "Public education about
turtles is important," Arnold said, "and hatchings are great
places for this type of education. We encourage people to
look at this wonderful natural event."
Shumard said the Island Turtle Watch collected
more than 13,000 turtle eggs from 116 nests on Island
beaches in 1994, took them to nurseries and hatched


hearing itself.
The DEP had held up its permit pending satisfac-
tory answers to questions of mitigation. This is the
physical process for replacing marine growth, in this
case mangroves and seagrasses, which would be de-
stroyed by construction of the new bridge.

Three acres to go
About three acres of seagrass will be wiped out by
the bridge, experts have estimated. The grass beds will
be replaced with new ones near the bridge and in a siz-
able area southwest of the bridge, said George Craciun,

out 12,200 baby turtles, a 93 percent success rate for
turtle births.
"Our success rate keeps getting better and better,"
Shumard said, "and we're getting smarter and smarter
with handling them."
Jerris Foote, head of the turtle program at Mote
Marine Laboratory, found 1,160 nests last year and
opened 977 to find a total of 101,829 eggs with 78,379
successfully hatched. Virtually all of those nests were
left in place; of the 1,160 identified, 186 were de-
stroyed. The most common causes of nest destruction
are raccoons, birds, fire ants, storms and adverse hu-
man intervention.

Beach renourishment gets good second-year grades


By Pat Copeland
Islander Reporter
The Anna Maria Island beach renourishment
project is performing extremely well, said Rick
Spadoni of Coastal Planning and Engineering.
"I can't think of another beach restoration project
that has performed as well as this one from the first
year to the second year," noted Spadoni.
Spadoni reported on project data at last week's
meeting of the Coalition of Barrier Island Elected Of-
ficials. He said periodic monitoring of the project is
part of the state permit requirement.
The project was authorized on Dec. 19, 1975, be-
gan on Dec. 24, 1992, and was competed on Feb. 24,
1993. Two million cubic yards of sand, taken from a
deposit area in the Gulf off the shore of Bradenton
Beach, was placed on the beach. The design berm
width of the beach, or the width to maintain for storm
protection, is 75 feet. The berm elevation was more
than five feet.
"Normally for a beach restoration project on the west
coast of Florida we would want a higher berm elevation
for storm protection purposes," explained Spadoni. "But
this is such a low-relief island that it was not feasible to
create a higher beach elevation without creating potential
sand-blowing problems over Gulf Drive."
Surveys of the beach, both on and off shore, were
performed at the end of construction, at one and two-
year periods.

Beach width
The average mean high water width of the beach
at the end of construction was 208 feet. At year one it
was 122 feet; at year two it was 116 feet.
"We have a very stable beach situation at this
time," said Spadoni. "We're very pleased to see this
type pattern because it indicates the beach is perform-
ing as well as we had hoped."
Engineers cannot create a beach cross section that
mimics nature, Spadoni said, adding that engineers
construct projects that are much wider with much
steeper offshore slopes.
"Mother nature will take a look at this beach and
essentially see a big pile of sand," he said. "Through
wave activity it will be reshaped. That reshaping is a
transfer of some of the sand that was piled on the beach
into the offshore zone to support the dry beach. We call
this the shift to the equilibrium profile."
One of the interesting facts about the Island's
beach renourishment project is that the beach shifted to
its equilibrium profile in only one month because of the
March 1993 storm, said Spadoni. The beach lost 68 feet
in width due to the storm.
Spadoni gave current beach widths at some of the
areas that were severely eroded prior to the project-

DEP's coordinator with DOT. There also will be
"some recruitment of grasses with the removal of
the old drawbridge," he said, "even though in
much of the area, the water is too deep for
seagrass."
Transplanting is designed to "improve the
abundance of seagrasses" in the area, he explained.
Some mangroves also will be displaced, to be
replanted elsewhere nearby.
The administrative hearing will mean further
delay in work on the new bridge, already held up
over many months because of "extenuating cir-
cumstances," said DEP's Huntington.
"We had to pull in outside experts for special-
ized information and studies," he said. "The Ma-
rine Patrol looked into the effects on navigation.
Attorneys studied the limits of authority and re-
quirements of agencies.
"Especially we wanted all possible informa-
tion from authorities on seagrass transplanting.
That has been a failure in the past, but some new
techniques show promise."
The DOT estimates the bridge would cost $11
million, while SAM officials calculate the cost
between $25 and $35 million. It would be built
parallel to the present drawbridge which would be
demolished on completion of the new structure.


After the elected official meeting, several members
received a tour of the Coquina BayWalk at Leffis
Key in Bradenton Beach.

Martinique, 100 feet; 50th Street in Holmes Beach, 110
feet; south of Katie Pierola Park, 160 feet; and at the
Gulf Drive Cafe, 211 feet.

Problems areas
There is one "hot spot," or area of accelerated ero-
sion, in the 3300 block of Gulf Drive in Holmes Beach,
said Spadoni.
"Percentage wise, we have lost more beach there
than any other part of the project," he said.
Following the beach construction, there was 100
feet of sand at that location, which subsequently
washed away.
"Recently we've done some measurements out
here and found that sand is moving back in," said
Spadoni. "The area has gained about 57 feet. At this
location, when we come back to renourish, we would
want to place more sand there or possibly place some
protective structure offshore."
Another problem area, near the S-curve in
Bradenton Beach, was the result of a storm in Novem-
ber 1994.
"We had a situation where waves were overtopping
the beach and water was sheet-flowing across the Island,"


Mitigate: To make or become milder, less severe,
less rigorous or less painful; moderate. Webster's
Dictionary.

To some, mitigation is the key to living responsibly
with the environment To others, it's a four-letter word.
It has delayed the last official permit for the pro-
posed high-rise bridge at Manatee Avenue, and the
mitigation delays are not over. While final steps are
being taken for issuance of the bridge permit by the
state Department of Environmental Protection, final
steps are being taken to appeal the permit decision
through an administrative hearing. (Story on Page One)
For the Department of Transportation to build the
bridge, the DEP is requiring that seagrass and man-
groves destroyed by the project be "mitigated" re-
placed by other, new grass bed and mangroves nearby.
At least two locations on the Island are already hot
spots for mitigation, one going and one coming.

Grass, Mangroves
John Fernandez, Holmes Beach public works di-
rector, said his city's only mitigated area is in Anna
Maria Sound at the end of 52nd Street. Seagrass was
planted there to make up for mangroves taken out when
the Holmes Beach Marina expanded, he said.
As in all cases, the DEP monitored the mitigation
for a specified time, then left it to nature. "The people
involved did what they were supposed to do,"
Fernandez said.
At Bradenton Beach's pier at the foot of Bridge
Street, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers is about to
begin rip-rapping the shore. It will displace a few man-
groves, which will be mitigated with mangrove
plantings on Leffis Key. DEP official Rose Poynor said
her department is making the corps plant many more
mangroves than it wipes out with its project.
She explained that mitigation is supposed to be
self-maintaining after three to five years.
"If it's not working then, the department requires
more," she said. A mitigated area "is supposed to main-
tain itself just did as the original spot for which we are
mitigating."


Spadoni explained. "What we found was that the fore-
shore, the front of the beach nearest the Gulf, had built up
and the elevation increased while the back beach did not
elevate. As these waves came over the beach, the water
was not able to drain back into the Gulf."
The front of the beach was shaved off to alleviate
the problem.

Renourishment
The beach will face periodic renourishment and the
Island's renourishment is slated for six years from now,
said Spadoni. The projected cost is $6 to 7 million.
However, the federal government is considering
drastically slashing or eliminating the funding for
renourishment projects. Islanders had hoped that 65 to
75 percent of the renourishment funding would come
from the federal government.
Officials and residents of coastal communities are
asked to contact their congressmen and senators, as
well as the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, and urge
them to keep the funding intact, Spadoni emphasized.
"This program is very important to you," he said.
"It's a program that pays for itself. There's been a lot
of economic studies that show the storm protection
alone exceeds the project cost. And that's not looking
at the tourism or recreation aspects."
"If we don't think we're going to get the federal
funds, shouldn't we look at some way to fund this?"
asked Holmes Beach Councilwoman Carol Whitmore.
"Nobody likes to hear this, but we may have to con-
sider a tax to pay for this."
Bradenton Beach Mayor Katie Pierola suggested
beach parking fees to pay for the project.
Spadoni said Captiva Island has a special taxing
district and others used funds from tourist develop-
ment councils.
'We've got enough lead time to look at all our re-
sources and bank some money," noted Manatee County
Commissioner Pat Glass.


That's all very well, but Gloria Rains, head of the
environmental watchdog group Manasota-88, finds it
more theoretical than practical and effective.
"Most wetland projects have been dismal failures,"
she said. "It is impossible to create the same function-
ing wetlands as were destroyed. There is no real fol-
low-up because of apathy among local officials and
lack of personnel in the state agency.
"The way things are going in Washington and Tal-
lahassee, Florida's wetlands are in serious jeopardy."
George Craciun hopes she is overly pessimistic. He
is DEP's supervisor of wetlands permitting and coor-
dinator with the DOT.
His experience is that recreating wetlands with low
plants and grasses has been fairly successful, that man-
groves are not hard to create "with care."
"The hard cases are forests," he says. "Trying to
plant climax trees in an old pasture doesn't work. You
can't skip over all that evolution" that has gone into a
forest. Giant tree spades are coming into use to move
whole big trees and surrounding plants, he said, and
that seems to be working.

Real Difficulty
Seagrasses are a real worry, though. "If all condi-
tions are ripe for grasses, you don't need to do much;
they'll thrive on their own. Sometimes we can restore
grass beds, but that's not a high success rate at all.
"The grass bed is the climax forest of the bay. Ev-
erything depends on it We'd rather not have any im-
pacting at all done on grass beds. We have to decide
whether the public interest is strong enough to be
served by doing away with grass."
Mitigation is now is three-pronged, he said:
Replace at least one for one for what was de-
stroyed, more like three for one in a forest.
Enhance a disturbed area, for instance by replac-
ing Brazilian peppers with native growth, by improv-
ing the water quality and the like.
Getting a conservation easement for wetlands; this
is a perpetual easement to the state, with the owner retain-
ing the land but restricted by a list of things he can't do
there so as to preserve its environmental quality.

agencies into 'eco-fracas'

from offshore that moved in with the strong west
winds," he said.
Pierce reported moderate to low counts of the tiny
organismin New Pass and in Sarasota Bay Monday. The
counts are below the levels required to immediately kill
fish, but could cause fish deaths if the red tide lingers.


The organisms that make up red tide tend to absorb
the available oxygen in the water, killing other marine life
in the vicinity of the red tide "bloom." The red tide organ-
isms also emit a gas, called an aerosol, that causes respi-
ratory problems to those who breathe the chemical.
Although the eye-stinging, nose-scratching odor
was strong on Casey and Siesta Keys during the week-
end, the irritation was gone Monday, although a few
dead fish littered the beaches of Siesta and Lido keys.
Only minor irritation has been reported on Anna
Maria Island, with few dead fish.
Red tide, Gymnodinium breve, is a naturally occur-
ring dinoflagellate that "blooms" offshore and may be
carried by wind and waves onto shore. The one-celled
organism is both animal and plant-like; is possesses
both chlorophyll, like a plant, and swims freely through
the water, like a fish.
Pierce said the center of the outbreak appeared to
be near Englewood. Low to no counts of red tide organ-
isms were reported farther north to Tampa Bay and
south at Boca Grande earlier this week.
There may soon by a new means for scientists to track
the red tide blooms, Pierce said. Scanning technology to
detect the pigment changes of red tide is scheduled to soon
be placed on an orbiting satellite to provide continuous
readings of bloom growth and drift. Pierce said the satel-
lite imaging would provide the first chance to both moni-
tor and predict where red tide blooms will move.

Finishing a dream of Mayor Simches


By Jeannie Friedman
After an extended stay and a shivering winter in the
mountains of West Virginia I recently returned to Anna
Maria to face the reality that one of the Island's great-
est supporters and more unforgettable characters was
gone.
Ray Simches, the irrepressible and undaunting
mayor of Anna Maria City, died this winter. Before
losing a hard-fought battle with cancer, he was forced
to give up his gavel and step aside from the job he cher-
ished.
He left before I could live up to a promise I made
to him. There was not time enough to wind up unfin-
ished business about horseshoes, islands and dreams.
During Ray's tenure as mayor, I was a writer for
The Islander Bystander. My primary beat was Anna
Maria in general, city hall specifically.
I snooped. He postured. We clashed frequently
both in public and behind closed doors.
On more than one occasion, I accused him of be-
ing a male chauvinist, a "good ol' boy" and an enemy
of a free press.
He, in turn, challenged my integrity, intentions and
sense of fairness. He frequently made my job impos-
sible by uttering that dreaded sentence: "This will have
to be off the record."
Maddening!
The mayor and I engaged in a continual power
struggle, a dual of egos and a gender war for control.
We finally reached an empasse in 1993 sort of.
At a city commission meeting that winter, Ray
proudly announced that new, regulation horseshoe pits
had been dug, staked and filled with sand. He said it
was something he had wanted for a long time.
"For seven or eight years, I've wanted to start a
horseshoe competition between the three Island cities,"
he announced.
Acknowledging that a weekly horseshoe challenge
was a small step in an effort to promote a spirit of co-
operation and togetherness between the towns, he
spoke with eagerness and excitement about the pros-
pect of an organized effort that might serve as a vehicle
to get residents acquainted.
He said his ultimate goal was to have a champion-
ship complete with fanfare and an engraved trophy
- which would be proudly displayed in one of the city
halls on the Island for a full year.
"I know it won't solve our problems, but it would
be great fun and it would bring teams from all the cit-
ies together," he said.
"Would The Islander Bystander reporter care to
respond to the challenge of getting a horseshoe tourna-
ment started here?" he said.
With a definite attitude, I replied, "You say you've
been trying to do this for several years? When do you

New members of

Islander team
The Islander Bystander welcomes new advertising
account representatives Laura Ritter and Darla Tingler
to the staff this week.
Darla has been with the newspaper since January
1993 as both manager of classified advertising and retail
advertising production. She has also been in charge of
maintaining the newspaper's morgue, library and ad files.
With this promotion to sales, Tingler will call on
advertisers on Anna Maria Island and Manatee Avenue
in Bradenton.
Darla lives in Anna Maria with her husband,
Bobby, and three friendly dogs.
Laura Ritter, new to the staff, will see accounts in
Bradenton Beach as well as on Cortez Road and
Longboat Key. Laura has worked most recently in en-
vironmental planning and prior has managed an Island
pub. She lives in Holmes Beach.
Ritter will also oversee special events for the news-
paper including the Ray Simches Memorial Island Cit-
ies Horseshoe Tournament on June 24, an adult "pub
pedal" and a golf tournament in the fall.
They join "veteran" advertising representative Jan
Barnes, who has been with The Islander Bystander
since the first issue of the newspaper in November
1992. As senior account representative, Barnes will
oversee advertising for the three Island cities govern-
ments in addition to her roster of retail advertisers.

want it to start?
"You want a tournament, you've got it. I just want
credit when I make it happen," this reporter flippantly
replied.
And happen it did. With my credibility and the
"power of the press" at stake, I set out to promote the
"toss about" that was to be. I wrote a story inviting
players to meet every week for the games and they
came.
On the appointed Saturday morning, the lawn at
Anna Maria City Hall was filled with excitement as
pitchers from all over the Island (and Bradenton) ar-
rived to participate in Ray's dream.
This Islander reporter was there to gloat.
Ray was magnanimous. He didn't mind sharing the
credit. He just wanted it to happen. He finally had his
long-awaited horseshoe tournament.
And, it's still going strong. Every Saturday morn-
ing they come to Anna Maria to pitch horseshoes.
And, as promised, the scores are faithfully posted
in The Islander Bystander. A promise the publisher
made to this northbound reporter which has been faith-
fully kept.
The problem is, there's the weekly competition,
but no tournament, no floating trophy to be proudly
displayed at the winner's city hall.
I accepted Ray's challenge and carried half of it
through. With a little help, his contributions to Anna
Maria can be perpetuated.
I propose an annual "Ray Simches Memorial Is-
land Cities Horseshoe Tournament."
It's a small tribute to a man who had big ideas for
a place he loved and a job he cherished.
Please toss the idea around.
It's up to you Islanders to get teams together,
practice and prepare for the ultimate challenge.


... and here's how

you can help
The trophy is ordered, the date is set, the challenge
has been met by The Islander Bystander.
Island throwers have two months to prepare for the
contest on June 24, the weekend before the July 4 holi-
day.
Teams may represent businesses or streets, blocks
or neighborhoods, families or friends. The entry fee for
the tournament is $20 per team with proceeds going to
a special fund for new baseball field lights at the Anna
Maria Island Community Center.
When Gabe Simches memorialized his brother Ray
at the services held at Roser Community Church, he
said, "I hope we keep Ray's memory bright"
We're taking him literally at The Islander By-
stander and we've initiated a special fundraising drive
to raise the money for baseball and soccer field light-
ing at the Anna Maria Island Community Center.
An account has been established by The Islander
Bystander at First National Bank of Manatee's Island
office for "light donations." We hope by the beginning
of baseball season next year to dedicate new lights to
the memory of three very important and significant
political figures in the history of the City of Anna
Maria who passed away in 1994 and 1995: Ray
Simches, Mary Ross and Ernie Cagnina.
Since there are four new light poles and fixtures
needed at the Center, we have one additional honoree
who is still very much with us. He's done so much for
others and still does having offered to help this
fundraising effort by "putting the touch" on a few of his
friends.
He is Snooks Adams.
For those of you who don't know him, he's a
former Island police chief who dedicates a great deal
of time and money for the benefit of Island youth. He
is honored each year by an event he organized in 1954,
a free picnic of hot dogs and sodas and a party at the

Pier improvements approved despite cost overruns


By Paul Roat
There's good news and bad for the Bradenton
Beach Fishing Pier and the pier approach.
Bad news: the first phase of improvements to the
pier and the construction of a rock revetment at the pier
approach at Bridge Street is estimated to cost about
$56,000 more than had been budgeted.
Good news: there is about $141,000 in funds that
can be diverted to the pier to make up the overage.
City council members have agreed to proceed with a
number of improvements to the 20-year-old fishing pier.
Most of the work is funded through federal or state grants.

Pier improvements
The city council agreed to award the pier improve-
ments to contractor J.E. Murray of Anna Maria, the low-
est of the eight competent bids at $53,000. A contract will
be negotiated with him through Building Official Whitey
Moran and the architectural firm, Eatman & Smith.
Council members appeared uneasy about Murray's
$2,500 estimate for electric service for pier lights.
Moran pointed out that other bids had the electric ser-
vice priced at $16,000-$19,000.
If the contract cannot be negotiated with Murray,
a contract to do the pier work will be attempted with
J.P. Construction of Bradenton or Joe Garbus of
Bradenton Beach.
Work to be done on the 630-foot pier includes repair
and replacement of damaged deck planking and railing,
demolition of the pavilion at the east end of the pier, in-
stallation of 20 new benches, three fish-cleaning stations
complete with fresh water and eight trash receptacles.
New lighting will also be added similar in design
to those throughout Bridge Street and, as Emily
Smith of Eatman & Smith has put it, "should gather
baitfish like gangbusters."
A structural review of the pier pilings by Dr.
Leonard J. Najjar, an engineer, revealed, "There are no
signs of imminent failure and I believe the structure
does not currently pose a threat to the life, safety or
welfare of the people using it."
Najjar did suggest nine pilings be replaced. One pil-
ing, is badly damaged as a result of a March 27 boat col-


The Bradenton Beach Fishing Pier will receive a face lift this summer. A total of more than 30 volunteers have
pledged to paint and stain the 20-year-old popular fishing spot on Bridge Street, in addition to the rock
revetment work and new decking to be added. Islander Photo: Bonner Presswood.


lision. Council members agreed to replace the nine pilings
at a cost of $6,207. The city's insurance company will pay
$2,807 toward piling repair due to the boat collision.
Smith and Connie Drescher will coordinate volun-
teer painting efforts at the pier, with council members
approving a $1,500 expense for supplies. Smith esti-
mated the cost saving to the city by using volunteers to
paint and stain the pier at $8,000.

Revetment costs
The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers agreed to fund
much of the work to repair the crumbling rock revet-
ment at the base of the pier near the intersection of Bay
Drive and Bridge Street. Mayor Katie Pierola told
council members that the bids for the project were
higher than anticipated $344,000 and federal
assistance would total $258,000, leaving Bradenton
Beach to make up the $86,000 difference.
The city council had budgeted $55,000 for the


work, she said, but another $31,000 was needed.

Added revenue
Councilman John Kaufmann, after review of the
city budget. said the pier account contained $28,000,
and city dh reserves totaled more than $66,000.
In audition, he said, funds could be transferred
from other projects that may be delayed city hall
improvements, parking lot development, police ac-
counts and others -by dipping into the one-cent sales
tax increase approved by voters for five years to fund
school improvements as well as municipal capital
works projects. Kaufmann estimated the one-cent sales
tax revenues at $115,225 for this fiscal year.
"We do have some flexibility to move this money
around," Kaufmann said.
Council members agreed that the pier improve-
ments took a top priority in city funding for this yeai
and gave approval to move forward with the pier work

Please pitch in and

help the Center
As they say in auto racing, "Gentlemen, start your
engines." At the baseball park the cry of the umpire
starts the game with "Play Ball." At the Olympics the
announcer says, "Let the games begin."
The Islander Bystander games are about to begin.
In June we'll sponsor the first of what we hope will be
many annual horseshoe tournaments honoring the late
mayor of Anna Maria, Ray Simches.
Simches challenged former reporter Jeannie
Friedmann and The Islander Bystander to help him
make his wish of a contest between teams representing
the Island cities and June 24 it will happen. The trav-
elling trophy is on order. -
We hope businesses will sponsor teams. Streets,
blocks and neighborhoods, families and friends may
form teams to compete in the Ray Simches Memorial
Island Cities Horseshoe Tournament.
Here's the pitch: The horseshoe challenge will be
the first fundraiser for new lights at the Anna Maria
Island Community Center baseball and soccer fields.
An account for the Center's "Field Lights" has been
established at the Island office of First National Bank
of Manatee, and we say, "Let the fundraising begin!"
Four new concrete light poles and lights are sorely
needed to replace the existing ones at a cost of more
than $12,000 according to the best estimates obtained
by Island Little League Volunteer President Scott Dell.
The Islander Bystander hopes by the beginning of
baseball season next year to dedicate new lights to the
memory of three very important and significant politi-
cal figures in the history of the City of Anna Maria who
passed away in 1994 and 1995: Ray Simches; Mary
Ross, a former city commissioner; and Ernie Cagnina,
mayor from 1975 to 1988.
Since four light poles and fixtures are needed, we
have one additional honoree who is still very much
with us. He's done so much for others and still does -
having offered to help this fundraising effort by "put-
ting the touch" on a few of his friends.
He is Snooks Adams. A unique Island character if
there ever was one and a former Island police chief
who is uniquely generous of his time and energy when
it comes to the needs of Island youth.
More fundraising events are in the making but the
project will depend on the generosity of the entire com-
munity. To help start the program, The Islander By-
stander will contribute $500.
We hope everyone will join with us and "pitch in."

A westerners view of Anna Maria
Editors' Note: Montana Slim will occasionally provide
his thoughts of the Island in The Islander Bystander.
By Montana Slim
Well, folks, I have finally come to roost on a island,
of all places. It ain't easy to explain to people back
home, but I promised to stay in touch so I'll give her a
whirl.
This island is by the name of Anna Maria. Don't
ask me why. Even if I knowed where the name come
from I wouldn't dare say. It would be sure to start an
argument, people being the way they are. Hard to be
feisty and relaxed at the same time, but danged if they
don't pull it off.
These fellers around here will give you a punch in
the snoot or the shirt off their back, it's up to you. The
ladies is friendly, is all's I can say. They're also about
half naked about half the time. The men, too. Their idea
of formal is to put on socks with their sandals. I pity any
poor pilgrim that shows up in a necktie. They'd hang
him with it. Or enlist him in some don't ask don't tell
army outfit.
They ain't hardly nothing flossy about Anna Maria.


This island is in the Gulf of Mexico, which is be-
tween Mexico and Florida. Something else between
Mexico and Florida is Mexicans. Florida politicians
don't seem to think any higher of Mexicans than poli-
ticians in other states do. Not to mention Haitians and
Colombians and Vietnamese and all them other aliens.
Cubans is sort of okay. A lot of them vote.
Anna Maria is far enough off the mainland to feel
proud, but not so far that it has to prove much of any-
thing. It is separate from Longboat Key, which gives
churches here a lively trade in people giving thanks.
People here is plenty proud of what they got, and
they ought to be. A lot of what they got is sand, though,
and where I come from sand ain't nothing to brag
about. This breed of sand is fine, but I bet it ain't been
cleaned in years.
They's plenty more I could tell you about this place
and the natives, but it will have to wait. Right now I've
got to saddle up my pickup truck and head up the is-
land. Speaking of, the island is truck-tolerant It's sort
of Florida Common, a pickup on every lawn.

THOSE WERE THE BAYS
Part 5, The Conquistadors
by June Alder


Ocali Chief Dulchanchellin coming in procession to meet Spanish explorer
Panfilo de Narvaez.


COMING IN GLORY


The first mistake Panfilo de
Narvaez made upon arriving in Florida
in April 1528 was to cut off the nose of
an important Timucuan chief called
Hirrihigua. His second mistake was
sending away the ships that brought his
600 soldiers and colonists to Tampa
Bay.
Those incredible boners were to
have disastrous consequences.
Narvaez decided to march his men
northward while the fleet sailed up the
Gulf to wait for the land expedition at a
certain bay Narvaez had heard about.
Never mind that neither he nor his pilot
knew where it was.
It was May 1 when Narvaez struck
off with 260 foot soldiers, 40 horsemen
and several priests to look for gold and
make Christians of the Indians. He was
supremely confident. After all, God had
given the land of Florida to El Papa, the
Pope, who in turn had given it to the
King of Spain. New Spain (Mexico),
which Hernando Cortez had conquered
with Narvaez's help, was making Spain
- and Cortez immensely rich.
Surely beautiful La Florida would be
just as rich in treasure.
The wives and girlfriends left be-
hind on the ships were not so optimistic,
however. Ten of them had so little faith
they'd ever see their men again that they
took new husbands and lived with them
aboard ship.
The soldiers had been issued rations
of two pounds of sea biscuits and only
one pound of bacon. When these were
consumed they ate swamp cabbage and
watercress and provisions purloined
from the villages they passed through.
The number of marchers soon doubled
with the addition of Indian guides and
bearers, including women and children.
Soon they found themselves in a
jungle swarming with mosquitoes,
snakes and alligators. The few villages
they came to appeared to be deserted.
(Messengers had been sent ahead by
Hirrihigua warning the villagers about
the "monsters" from Spain.)
One day the weary soldiers were
astonished to hear strains of music com-
ing from afar, and soon a gaudy proces-
sion came into view.
An orchestra of flutes, drums and
pipes led the way, heralding the ap-
proach ofroyalty. The players wore only
loincloths, but their bodies were elabo-


rately decorated with tattoos in brilliant
colors. Bracelets encircling their fore-
arms and thighs were trimmed with
tiny bells that jingled to the rhythm of
their slow paces.
Behind the musicians came Chief
Dulchanchellin, the mighty king of the
Ocali, borne on a litter. He reclined on
a chamois throne in the shade of an
enormous feathered canopy. His entire
body was tattooed in intricate designs
from head to toe, his face freshly
painted red (the royal color, symbol of
the Sun god) and in his ears inflated red
fish bladders shone like pearls. He
wore a deerskin cloak beautifully dyed
in patterns of vermilion and black, and
that was all save for the gold and cop-
per ornaments dangling from his neck,
wrists, knees and ankles.
Behind their chief strode 300 mus-
cular warriors. They looked like giants
with their shiny black hair gathered
into topknots from which floated heron
plumes, dyed red.
The two leaders conversed for an
hour as their people watched one an-
other warily. After the customary ex-
pressions of goodwill Dulchancellin
spoke to his visitor of a region to the
north called Apalache, which
abounded in wondrous animals and
foodstuffs fruit trees that needed no
cultivation and great fields of maize.
An ideal place for a colony.
Narvaez had already heard from
his local guides of the wealthy city of
Apalache and of a river that flowed
over beds of gold. He very much
wanted to make a friend of this amiable
potentate.
"By signs we gave him to under-
stand that we wished to go to
Apalache," recorded Alvar Nunez
Cabeca de Vaca, the expedition's sec-
retary, "and it appeared to us, by those
he made, that he was an enemy to its
people, and would go to assist us
against them. We gave him beads and
hawk-bells, with other articles of traf-
fic, and he presented the Governor with
the skin he wore, and then returned, we
following him in the road he took."
Narvaez's eyes must have gleamed
in anticipation as the cavalcade moved
off.

Next: March into hell

Council hopes to accommodate canal users


By Pat Copeland
Islander Reporter
The Holmes Beach City Council instructed its at-
torney to update a 1986 draft ordinance to allow resi-
dents in the Bay Palms subdivisions to register for the
right to use dock space in designated T-end canals.
Ownership of the T-end docks in the 72nd through
77th Street canals on Marina Drive has been at issue for
10 years. The council has held several meetings in the past
few months in an attempt to resolve the matter.
In a meeting last week, City Attorney Patricia
Petruff explained her research on the subject as detailed
in last week's Islander Bystander.
Petruff's conclusion was that owners in the origi-
nal Bay Palms subdivisions have a "right greater than
the general public" to use the boat space in the T-end
canal between 72nd and 74th Streets and the south half
of the T-end canal between 74th and 75th Streets. She
based this conclusion on wording in the resident's
deeds that states the right granted is to "use a boat space
in the canal in Bay Palms subdivision fronting on Ma-

rina Drive."
After some discussion, council agreed to extend
that right to the T-end canal between 75th and 77th
Streets and the north half of the T-end canal between
74th and 75th Streets.
Petruff responded to numerous questions from
council and the audience.
Q: Were the basins (T-ends) as well as the canals
dedicated to the city?
Petruff: Yes. A few of the plats indicate both and oth-
ers just the canals. I think the intent was to dedicate every-
thing, including the T-ends, because they were taken off
the tax rolls, taken out of private ownership and no one has
paid taxes on them since they were dedicated.
Q: In addition to a right to use, Bay Palms deeds
state that the deed holder "also owns an interest in the
area." What does that mean?
Petruff: The developer, Peder Mickelsen, is alleg-
ing that he owns an interest in this boat space and he
is giving anybody who has one of these deeds a right
to use. HeTdid not give anyone an ownership interest.
Q: What is does "right to use" mean?
Petruff: It is a right shared by all the people who
have the wording on their deeds. It is not exclusive.
There are 163 potential deeds out there.
Q: Could that right be extended to the T-end canal
between 75th and 77th Streets and the north half of the
T-end canal between 74th and 75th Streets?
Petruff: I think that's a supportable policy decision.
Q: What about liability?
Petruff: One policy decision the council needs to
make is if the issue of liability can be dealt with by
requiring people to provide hold-harmless or indemni-
fication agreements or other documents.
Q: If a person injures himself on a dock, could
there be a class action lawsuit against all those who
have a right to use?
Petruff: I think it would not withstand a motion to
dismiss, but it's not out of the realm of possibilities.
The likely party to be sued is whoever owns the dock.
Q: If a seawall caves in and takes a dock with it,
who's responsible?
Petruff: The city is not responsible for rebuilding


the dock but it is responsible for the seawall.
Q: If the council decides to lease the space, can it
require the lease holder to maintain the seawall?
Petruff: Yes.
Q: Could the city establish a special taxing district
for seawall maintenance?
Petruff: Yes. The city could assess those people
who have a right to use and the monies could be used
for dredging and seawall repair.
Q: What if someone didn't want to participate?
Petruff: I think he could quit claim his right to use,
but he has to weigh the value he thinks it has against
the cost.
Q: Is there a way we could allow people with deeds
to make claims by a certain date, then cut it off and
open the right to use to the public?
Petruff: No. It's still in their deeds.
Q: If I have a deed and claim a dock space, will that
space always be mine?
Petruff: The city can allow people to use the space in
a reasonable manner, which could include constructing a
dock. I don't think we can say to anyone that this will al-
ways be his space. If he takes his boat out and someone
else from Bay Palms moves in, the city has no authority
to tell either one he has to go. It's a civil matter.
Q: Can the spaces be leased on a first come, first
served basis?
Petruff: No. You want to recognize the right of the
people of Bay Palms to use the spaces and you may
choose to regulate that in some way, but they are shar-
ing these spaces with a lot of other people.
Q: Should people have the right to rent the spaces?
Petruff: That is a policy decision of the council. It
is my opinion that they should not because there's not
enough spaces for all those who have deeds.
Q: What about allowing people to run water and
electricity to the docks?
Petruff: That's a policy decision of the council.
(The council agreed to grandfather those who have
water and sewer lines but not permit any others to be
added.)
When the draft ordinance is completed, the coun-
cil will call a special meeting to discuss it.

By Pat Copeland
Islander Reporter
The Holmes Beach City Council agreed on two
things at last week's work session- that it favors
rental restrictions in all residential districts and there
should be a 30-day minimum rental period in the R-
2 district.
Various options were suggested for the other resi-
dential districts, including a seven-or 14-day mini-
mum in the R-2 and R-3 districts, splitting the R-2
district and placing a seven-day minimum on condo-
miniums in the A-1 district.
The discussion began with a draft ordinance sub-
mitted by Councilwoman Carol Whitmore which
called for a 30-day minimum in the R-1 district, a 14-
day minimum in the R-2 district and a seven-day
minimum in the R-3 district.
The R-1AA district and the R-4 district are gov-
erned by other ordinances. In the R-1AA district (Key
Royale) there is a 30-day minimum and in the R-4
district there is a seven-day minimum.
"We promised the citizens three years ago we
would start with the R-4 district and work our way up
the city and we haven't done that," said Whitmore.
"We can't stop the people who have been doing it and
paying the proper taxes and are registered with the
city, but I'm trying to prevent these rentals from mov-
ing through the entire city in the future."
Councilman Don Maloney asked who would en-
force the ordinance. Whitmore said the the public
works department would handle enforcement.
Public Works Director John Fernandez said he has
had only occasional complaints about rentals. Mayor
Rich Bohnenberger said each case must be documented
and these types of cases are difficult to prove.
"It takes a lot of effort to investigate these com-
plaints," said Fernandez.
"Thirty days in R-1 is acceptable but two weeks
in R-2 is too prohibitive," said Council Chairman
Luke Courtney. "The real estate people want seven
days because they can't rent for more than that."
"It's a big residential area and the people don't
want weekly rentals," replied Whitmore.
"This request did not come from the commu-
nity," noted Bohnenberger. "Take the property
owners point of view. He's going to ask, 'Why are
you limiting my source of revenue and not my
neighbor's across the street?' "
Council members say they want to maintain a
residential atmosphere and the increasing residential
rentals send the wrong message, said Whitmore.
"This is a tourist community with a residential at-
mosphere," replied Courtney. "We're getting more
full-time residents and a younger population. The
number of rental properties is decreasing."
"I'm not in favor of short term rentals in residen-
tial areas," said one resident of the R-2 district. "You
can't say tourist and residential in the same breath.
The shorter you make the rental periods, the worse the
character of the city will be."
Councilwoman Pat Geyer said if R-3 has a seven-
day minimum, R-2 should be the same. Council-


At last week's Anna Maria City Commission
work session discussion centered on an illegal "no
parking" sign. Seems someone took the law into his/
her own hands since no one in public works can de-
termine authorization.
The sign is on Jacaranda. Interim Public Works
Director Frank Tyndall said he's tracing whether the
sign is authorized, adding, "But if not we should re-
move the no parking sign."
Tyndall suggested replacing it with a "no parking
to corner" sign to solve a problem created by a blind
spot from new landscaping on a new house at the

woman Billie Martini said she was undecided on seven
or 14 days for R-2.
Maloney said he could go with 30 days in the R-1
and seven days in the others. He suggested splitting the
R-2 district and having seven-day rentals from Gulf
Drive to Holmes Boulevard and 14-day rentals in the
remainder of the district.
"What's you opinion about restricting condomini-
ums in the A-i district?" asked Courtney. "The district
is 60 percent residential. Anything that's not designated
as a motel should abide by minimum rental periods."
Whitmore suggested seven days or less for the
condominiums.
Courtney suggested the rental ordinances govern-
ing the R-1AA and R-4 districts be combined with any
restriction for the remaining residential districts into
one ordinance.
City Clerk Leslie Ford said the city attorney
pointed out numerous legal problems with the ordi-
nance. Courtney said the ordinance would be sent to the
attorney for comments and brought back to council for
further discussion.

Sign requests for other areas on Jacaranda
prompted public works commission liaison Chuck
Shumard to take a ride with Tyndall to investigate.
According to Shumard, requests for two stop signs and
a "watch for children" sign should be carefully consid-
ered since there are already six stops on Jacaranda.
Tyndall was instructed to check into school bus
stops in regard to the "children" warning sign.
A street light request from 108 Elm Ave. was ap-
proved and Florida Power and Light has been notified.

SAM steps up efforts

on bridge alternatives


By Bonner Presswood
At last week's meeting of Save Anna Maria, Inc., Joy
Courtney announced that $2,851 had been raised from the
sale of stock certificates by The Islander Bystander.
President Melody Kramer expressed SAM's appre-
ciation for newspaper's reporting on the bridge issue
and for the great idea to sell and sponsor the sale of
bridge stock certificates.
Joy Courtney reported a $500 donation from Alan
Bouziane and family, owners of Bali Hai Resort in
Holmes Beach. Bouziane said he was motivated by the
"selling the bridge" story. Bouziane said SAM could
use his name to challenge other Island businesses to
contribute.
Bouziane also said that although he knows what
SAM is against the 65-foot-clearance, fixed-span
bridge he'd like to know what SAM was "for."

'Do-able' alternatives
Bunny Garst re-introduced renderings of bridge
designs acceptable to SAM that were done last year by
Kathy Yearwood. Three alternatives incorporate the
existing bridge with renovations to include a safety lane
and sidewalk.


According to Garst, the concept was completed
last year on the Howard Frankland Bridge spanning
Tampa Bay from St. Petersburg to Tampa by a con-
struction firm named Blasters.
SAM contacted Ben Watts, head of DOT, two
years ago to request an evaluation of the Anna Maria
Island Bridge by Blasters. Blasters would not review
the bridge on behalf of SAM because of work it does
for DOT and there was no action on the request to
Watts, according to Bunny Garst.
Garst also said that as of last Thursday, she has writ-
ten DEP, asking them to contact Blasters and get the
information as to how the bridge could be rehabbed.
Jim Kissick said DOT would likely reply with,
"You can't do this (SAM's designs) because a side-
walk could not be supported (on the existing bridge)."
But, according to Kissick, the bridge is notched and
ready to hold a cantilevered sidewalk when current side-
walk space is taken up by the new safety lane. "Using the
same criteria as used on the Howard Frankland Bridge
project, our rehab would cost about $5.2 million, instead
of the $11 million budgeted for the construction of the
proposed mega bridge," Kissick said.
Our bridge rehab ideas are "do-able," said
Kissick.

,, .', a resolution against DOT's proposed 65-foot bridge
'to Isla Del Sol and that all of Clearwater's seven or

Kissick said DOT's proposed 65-foot bridge to
New Smyrna Beach, which was planned to replace its
existing 14-foot bridge, was changed recently by
S' DOT to a 25-foot bridge. A bridge over the same

Golfers driving some residents

to distraction


By Pat Copeland
Islander Reporter
Golfers using the City of Holmes Beach's practice
area adjacent to the fire station must abide by the rules
or pay a fine.
Mayor Rich Bohnenberger said he has received
complaints from nearby residents about golfers break-
ing rules restricting activity to chipping and putting. He
said golfers have been using the area as a driving range

and suggested that they use plastic balls.
"We will lose the effect of having it there," protested
Councilwoman Billie Martini. "Move it to the field."
'There's no control there," replied Bohnenberger.
"That's why a designated golfing practice area was
created and it was limited to chipping and putting. If
you want to leave it as it is, I would still ask that you
impose a fine for violating the rules."
Council Chairman Luke Courtney said he could
go along with a fine and suggested posting a warning
sign with the amount of the fine.
City Clerk Leslie Ford asked if the police depart-
ment or the public works department will be in charge
of enforcement. Bohnenberger said he would discuss
it with the police chief and bring the information back
to council.
Bohnenberger also suggested planting a barrier of
shrubbery between the fire station and the golf prac-
tice area.
In other business:
Council agreed to continue with one meeting
and one work session a month for another six months,
then re-evaluate the suggestion to return to two meet-
ings and two work sessions a month.
Council will consider an ordinance creating a
special exception for in-home artistic teaching at the
May 16 work session.
Council agreed to drop any further discussion on
creating a special exception for consumption of alco-
holic beverages at special events.
Council members will individually review a
draft personnel policy and discuss their comments
with the mayor.
Deputy Clerk Teri Kirkpatrick presented the six-
month review of the city budget to council.

'In Memoriam'
premieres in America
Included in the program of the Anna Maria Island
Community Orchestra and Chorus concert this Sunday
afternoon will be the American debut of a 50-year-old
work composed by Jan Bartelsman, father of the Island
orchestra's president and founder, Willem Bartelsman.
As a young boy in the Netherlands during World War
II, Willem remembers well
that "despite all the agony and
suffering around us, my fa-
ther continued working on the
S revision and orchestration of
this work, which he intended
to perform in our town at the
completion of the hostilities."
The composition for
orchestra, chorus and solo-
ists then ready, Willem says
Jan Bartelsman his father "had to wait three
unforgettable months" for
its Holland debut when their town, Soest, was finally
liberated in May 1945.
The senior Bartelsman died in 1948. When Willem
came to the United States in 1957, he left the manu-
script for "In Memoriam" with another conductor for
safekeeping. After a lengthy search, Willem recovered
some of the composition two years ago.
With orchestration by Richard Griffiths and trans-
lation by his wife, Geraline, Willem Bartelsman takes
personal and professional pleasure in presenting his
father's piece for the first time in America on the Island
he has called home since 1987.

Poison, pleasure mix well at Chapel Players 'Arsenic'


By CynthiaFinn
Islander Reporter
For an evening of zaniness that will lighten your
heart and take you out of this world, do choose one of
the remaining performances of the Chapel Players'
staging of the classic, "Arsenic and Old Lace."
Out of this world, indeed, is one night-into-day in
early 1940s Brooklyn, trapped in the parlor of the
Brewster family Victorian.
There's Teddy Brewster, a genuine "hatched
cuckoo," who charges in and out, trumpet fixed, lost in
his own play where he's the main character, President
Teddy Roosevelt.
Played to the hilt literally by James Lewis,
who also debuts as a Chapel director, this Teddy is
certifiable and remarkably amusing. Lewis' stage ex-
perience is genuine. His commitment, in the play, and
to this play and the Chapel Players, is not to be missed.
Enter Aunt Abby Brewster, who bustles and
bubbles from set left to set right, upstage and down, the
ultimate cheerful do-gooder who envisions the murder
of lonely gentlemen as "just one of our charities."
Vivacious in real life, Joy Courtney is Abby
Brewster for this two-hour fling, in voice and motion
and facial expression. Her heart-on-her-sleeve humor
works and works well. Be careful, though, she's very
convincing in her ever-hospitable offer of elderberry
wine!
Abby's partner in "Christian" crime, equally
flighty older sister Martha Brewster, Is every bit as
endearing as she means to be. Another Chapel Players'
regular, Pat Hoefig, does a terrific "innocent" Martha
whose gleeful description of the "arsenic, strychnine
and just a pinch of cyanide" is laced with genius.
Cynical drama critic Mortimer Brewster, another
nephew, commands attention in every scene. He knows
"insanity runs in my family it practically gallops,"
but alone with his thoughts he's sure to figure a way out
of this mess: 12 auntie-induced corpses buried lovingly
down in Teddy's Panama Canal, the cellar.
No stranger to Island stages, John Durkin is dash-
ing as the edgy, egotistical Mortimer who well main-
tains the ever-present sense of comical lunacy.
Laura Nelson portrays the dallying minister's
daughter from next door, Elaine Harper, who's learned

a thing or two up in the choir loft. Nelson gives a fine
performance as the modern, ready-for-action gal who
is determined to become a part of the Brewster clan.
But does she know what she's in for?

A capital cast
Now enter long-lost brother and nephew Jonathan,
the Boris Karloff look-alike who was a horror as a child
and ain't doing much better as a man. Magnus Hines,
a real-life collector of old horror movies, looms in this
role as the mad Jonathan, an escaped lifer who isn't
intent on letting the aunties' murders top his.
Jonathan's partner, the inebriated parasite and mad
"scientist," Dr. Herman Einstein, ergo Peter Lorre, cre-
ates new faces for the overbearing Jonathan and creeps
about in his own uncorked fashion. Returning to com-
munity theater after 21 years, James Schotsch is a wel-
come plus to the Chapel Players' ventures.
Seven supporting cast members do their excellent part
to add to the hilarity of Joseph Kesselring's composition.
Tom Vaught is superb as the pedestrian Rev. Dr. Harper
in Act I. Stage newcomers Wiley Bennett and Michael
Price give fine performances as the good-hearted but per-
haps inept police officers Brophy and Klein.
Roser Church Deacon Renal Hook returns in force
to the chapel stage as Mr. Gibbs, the single gentleman
who gets away. Michael Kinsella is divinely irritating
as officer O'Hara, whose 12-year police career is just
a side to his unpublished playwright status, and acting
veteran Charles Guy is sure and steady as Mr.
Witherspoon.
Rounding out the players is Sinclair (Bubba)
Stewart in the perfect portrayal of typically critical and
bumbling Lieutenant Rooney. Stewart's wife, Martha,
also deserves great credit for her assistant director's
role.
Set designer Art Ballman and set construction chief
David Miles must be commended for the authenticity
and detail of the scenery and props. Costume designer
Pat Sunquist's work truly enhanced this Chapel Play-
ers' production, and sound including old '40s favor-
ites is handled by 15-year-old Amanda Donoho
Lewis.
The Chapel Players do not claim to be pros, but one
audience member, a Chicago native who's seen plenty

The Island Poet
Friends may come to you in all shapes and sizes,
Some have all the looks while others are no prizes.
And no one knows how friends are made or how
a friendship starts,
'Cause it's not just a meeting of the minds, it's a
meeting of the hearts.
For if you have friends that stand by you when the
chips are down,
You better believe you are the most fortunate one
in town.
For you could be the richest one on earth with
money with no end,
But your life would be a total loss, if you didn't
have a friend.

Butterfly heaven
Students and parents involved in Vicky Small's

tiny dark mustard-colored salt grains sprinkled on a
leaf) only on certain plants and that each age level of
a butterfly will only feed off of specific plants.

May 23. A student will be assigned to spend a morn-
ing with officials in city hall, the police department, the

The trip, which Kaufmann titles "Future leaders in
today's environment," may be expanded to other cities
and other classes.

Beach residents, Kaufmann added.

Beyond the beach on Anna Maria


By Paul Roat
Grown tired of the beach, but don't
want to leave the Island?
There are ahost of activities visitors
and residents alike may avail themselves
with on the Island. The following are
just a few samples of things you can do
other than bake on the beach.
Although fishing or eating are
highly recommended on any of the
Island's three fishing piers, a stroll and
chat with the anglers is also a pleasur-
able experience. The Anna Maria City
Pier (100 Bay Blvd. S., Anna Maria) juts
out into Tampa Bay and provides a great
panorama of the Sunshine Skyway
Bridge to the northeast. Pelicans wheel
and dive for fish, perch on the roof and
electric wires leading to the pier restau-
rant and offer great photo opportuni-
ties, by the way.
Chances are good you'll see some
dolphin frolicking in the water near the
Rod and Reel Pier (875 N. Shore Drive,
Anna Maria). This pier is near and dear
to Island pier fishers who remember the
late great Frank Cavendish, he of the
near-perennial bare feet and shark-hunt-
ing prowess.
The Bradenton Beach Fishing Pier
(200 Bridge St., Bradenton Beach) of-
fers some of the best backwater fishing
around. Renovations are scheduled for
the pier later this summer, with new
decking, railings and lights to be added.
While you're in Bradenton Beach,
be sure to stroll through the Coquina
BayWalk at Leffis Key, across Gulf
Drive from Coquina Beach. The
BayWalk offers a terrific view of Anna
Maria Sound and the village of Cortez

from atop its 40-foot sand
dune. There are also inter-
pretive trails and what
some have called a "ro-
mantic" vista point at the
park's northeast corner.
Another public park
with a natural twist is the
Anna Maria Historical Park .
in the City of Anna Maria.
The park, part of the Florida
Yards & Neighborhoods
program, was completed last
year and is a good example
of how low-maintenance,
drought-tolerant landscap-
ing can be created to provide
a beautiful garden or yard.
Readers may want to
visit one or both of the
Island's libraries. Tingley ,,
Memorial Library (111 Sec- .
ond St. N., Bradenton
Beach) is the result of the
benevolence of Beulah
Hooks Hannah Tingley, The old city
who bequeathed huge sum
in her will for the library's creation several
years ago. The library offers computers
and a large selection of contemporary and
classic novels.
The Island Branch Library (5701
Marina Drive, Holmes Beach), offers a
full-service county library on the Island,
plus a number of special presentations,
features, lectures and other offerings.
Check the current Islander Bystander
for what's happening at the Island Li-
brary.
Both libraries, by the way, offer
readers a chance to catch up on past hap-

Speaking of times past on Anna Maria
Island, historians should plan to stop at the
Anna Maria Island Historical Society (402
Pine Ave., Anna Maria) to see what times
were like in days when the Island was


sparsely populated. Photographs, books
and helpful volunteers will offer leads to

Collaboration success
As part of the Florida Winefest and Auction, I was
invited to a wine-tasting dinner at Ivo's on Longboat
Key last week.


Congenial host Ivo Scafa, owner of Ivo's on
Longboat Key, was introduced to new wine aficio-
nado Pam Palmer of Sarasota, who in turn was
introduced to the subtle pleasures of Stonegate wines
at the Winefest benefit dinner. Palmer is a paralegal
with Kanetsky, Moore & DeBoer of Longboat Key.

For those of you not lucky enough to have tried
Ivo's continental cuisine or to know the gracious Ital-
ian host and owner, Ivo (say long "e," e-vo) Scafa,
don't wait any longer to make his acquaintance.
The wine-tasting dinner was a collaboration be-
tween Ivo and winemaker David Spaulding, vice-presi-
dent of Stonegate Winery in Calistoga, Cal.
Collaborations such as this one were "happening"
all over Longboat Key and Sarasota at other fine res-
taurants, including Euphemia Haye, Michael's on East
and at Cafe L'Europe (where, my son, Damon, is ex-
ecutive sous chef).
I've heard nothing but rave reviews of all the other
dinners and tasting, and now you can hear mine.
First, we met a charming winemaker and tall-tale
teller. He was, of course, knowledgeable and helpful in
pointing out the virtues of his vintner efforts. The vine-
yard is situated at 600 to 1,000 feet elevation in the hills
of the northern Napa Valley across from Mount St.
Helena, the highest point in the San Francisco Bay area
at 4,400 feet. It is a small winery and consequently little
known, bottling only 12,500 cases annually.
Not your average "stop-and-go" wine. In fact, it's
hard to come by here. Stonegate averages only 2,500
cases of cabernet sauvignon and 500 cases of reserve
red annually. They bottle 500 cases of cabernet franc,
500 of late-harvest sauvignon blanc, 2,000 of

and Germany visited with
Ivo during the sorbet
respite as David
Spaulding presented the
virtues of his Stonegate
wines.







sauvignon blanc, 3,500 chardonnay and 2,500 cabernet
sauvignon.
We began our six-course effort with Brisaola al
Parmigiano Reggiano, thin-sliced, cured, dried beef
garnished with arugula and accompanied by smooth
wedges of Reggiano. This course was highlighted by
the 1990 Cabernet Franc, a red wine with raspberry
aromas together with notes of violets, anise and black
currants and the roasty scent of French oak barrels.
Next, a 1992 Sauvignon Blanc set up our taste buds
for Ivo's Tortellini Napoletana. The cheese-filled
tortellini were topped with fresh tomato sauce with
even fresher-tasting basil. This wine was crisp and fo-
cused with an accent of peach, melon and citrus rich
and lingering.
The sauvignon blanc was exceptional but the 1991
chardonnay was an applause-getter from our fellow
connoisseurs complex with flavors of melon, coco-
nut and anise mingling with vanillin of French oak.
The chardonnay was served with Gamberi
"Stonegate," large Gulf shrimp sauteed in olive oil,
garlic and parsley and finished with the Stonegate
chardonnay. Crisp, delicious and appetizing.
At this juncture, the Sorbetto Alla Pera proved to
be a perfect palate cleanser before the entree, Scalop-

of cabernet and cabernet franc grapes. The rich, black *
cherry fruit, together with scents of chocolate, cedar
and mint, was smooth textured with a long finish. The
entree itself was thin-sliced, prime veal sauteed and
topped with eggplant, served with a delicate Stonegate
merlot sauce. Compliments and raves to the chef and
his staff.
Dessert, luscious strawberries marinated in Bal- -
samic vinegar with sugar and mint was served with a -
late harvest, 1987 Sauvignon Blanc.
Lest we forget along with a purely enjoyable
evening of gastronomic extravagance we must also
compliment the wait staff. Kudos to all.
And then, of course, all this decadence was fol-
lowed with a necessity for cab fare to make it home
safely. Just kidding.

Retired teacher finds Island niche in art


By Cynthia Finn
Islander Reporter
Wendy Hendrix of Bradenton Beach has a love-of-
life smile and a graceful way that are inviting additions
to her alternate Thursdays arts-and-crafts class at the
Anna Maria Island Community Center.
A longtime fifth- and sixth-grade teacher in Los An-
geles, Hendrix discovered the Island while scouting both
Florida coasts and settled here permanently from Seattle
three years ago. She's effervescent about her choice.
"I just love it here, it's so wonderful," says
Hendrix. "The longer I live here, the more I know it just
has to be the Island!"
In an effort to meet more people from other parts
of Anna Maria, Hendrix attended an AMI Forever
Young gathering at the Center last fall. "I signed a


list of those interested in doing some arts and crafts.
When they said they needed a chairman," she smiles,
"I said of course."
In addition to teaching children, Hendrix' L.A.
career included in-service arts-and-crafts instruction to
other elementary school teachers. "I love to teach ba-
sic art elements and the principles of design in ways
that are simple and effective."
Her 25 also-retired students "are so appreciative,"
says Hendrix. "We have a great time, we learn how to
do good work and we learn basic tools that help us to
go out and better appreciate other artists' work."
Hendrix' next class will be from 12:30 to 2:30 p.m.
Thursday, March 30. The fee is $2 per person. For
more information, call Hendrix at 778-6685 or the
Center, 778-1908.


With a loving hand and aflair for teaching the basic
elements of art, Wendy Hendrix suggests a new
technique.


Among the 25 active seniors creating personal water-color greeting cards are, left to right, Rudy and Rose
Mazzalupo, Carol Tomovick, Dorine Burrows, Sue Hillman and Lillian West. Islander Photos: Cynthia Finn.

white and yellow flowers near the top of the plant.

son but found nothing.

Officers of the Year named


Bradenton Beach Officer Michael Klemkosky and
Holmes Beach Officer Steve Wolff have been named
Officers of the Year for their departments. They will be
honored at a banquet by the Manatee 100 Club.

Officer Michael Klemkosky
Klemkosky has been a full-time member of his
department for 18 months. Prior to that he was a part-
time officer for a year and participated in the


Klemkosky


department's county
record-breaking LSD ar-
rest in March of 1993.
"Because of his
military experience and
innate ability to lead, he
was selected for and has
been certified as one of
our field training officers
and performs well in that
capacity," said Chief Jack
Maloney. "He is a very
aggressive patrol officer


and his stats, especially arrest stats, are consistently
at the top. He always goes beyond what is required
and gives extra."
Maloney praised Klemkosky for his part in keep-
ing a potential suicide victim from harming himself
further and getting him under control so emergency
personnel could attend to him.
"The individual was in a shower stall, where he had
cut his wrists and neck, and holding a razor to his wrists,
threatened to cut them more if he wasn't left alone," said
Maloney. "After talking to him for awhile, Klemkosky
got close enough and struck the razor from his hand
with a baton and subdued him, thus ending a tense situ-


The complainant reported that a person unknown en-
tered her residence and poured motor oil on the rear
window of the house, placed toilet paper in the oil and
broke an egg on top of the toilet paper.

action with no further injuries to anyone."

Officer Steve Wolff
Wolffis a first-year patrol officer. Prior to that
he was employed by the department as communi-
cations operator and reserve police officer. He was
nominated for the award in a nearly unanimous vote
by his peers who wrote the following:
"Steve's law enforce-
ment ability and knowl-
edge go far beyond his I
rookie experience.
"Steve is very con-,
scientious and has
shown a maturity level
of a much more experi-
enced officer.
"There's never a
morning ... that he
doesn't have a smile on Wolff
his face or a laugh to go
around, regardless of how his night has gone.
"Officer Wolff has demonstrated a calming
influence on disturbance and domestic disputes.
"He loves his job and it shows in his perfor-
mance."
Chief Jay Romine gave a specific example of
Wolff s attentiveness to duty, which occurred on
July 23, 1994,at 2:30 a.m.
"While on patrol at that time, Wolff observed
some type of light coming from inside a local busi-
ness," said Romine. "Wolff determined the origin to
be a fire. The fire department responded and the fire
was extinguished, saving the business owner extensive
damage to his property."

He was met by the complainant who said she observed the

The suspect was stopped in the parking lot by employees.
The suspect was issued a notice to appear.

Singing kings and new-boat dreams ahead


By Bob Ardren
Outdoor Perspectives
Here's hoping those strong weekend winds break
up the red tide appearing along the beaches to the south.
As of presstime, Englewood seemed strongest hit in our
area, with some dead fish appearing on Siesta Beach
and a strong odor and a few scattered dead fish on Lido
Beach.
It may be heading this way.

Kings in full song
Assuming you can get offshore, what with the
winds of late, fishing for kingfish is at its height right
now. Some of the best fishing is clearly right off the
Island. In fact, down in Sarasota last weekend, the pros
came to town and battled over $30,000 in prizes at the
first Suncoast Kingfish Classic Tournament The win-
ners came up our way to fish.
The action was terrific. Drawing more than 90 en-
tries, fishers from out of the area won the big money,
with first place going to a 44.73-pound king. But as in
so many fishing tournaments, the competition was
close, with second overall going to a fish weighing
44.22 pounds.
Winning fisher was Chris Yates of Jacksonville,
while second place went to Tony Pemble of St. Peters-
burg.
The winning fish came from offshore, but second
place was caught slow trolling in the Egmont shipping


channel. Slow trolling a white bait. The winning fish
was caught on a blue runner.
Good as the king run is this year, its been much
better in the past. That's what some of the real old tim-
ers, and an official of the Florida Marine Fisheries
Commission, told me over the weekend. He also said
that the king population right now is about 40 percent
of what it was in the "good ol' days."
But the truth also is that the king fishery seems to
be improving every year right now, and that's coming
about through some good management, I think.

Cuba? Again?
Don't tell anyone, especially anyone in local
officialdom, but there's another sailing event to Cuba
planned for this June. Scheduled for the 10th through
the 17th, you can get full details by faxing Bob Win-
ters at 011-537-33-1689. Be sure to include your name
and fax number for a quick reply.

Suncoast Boat Show this
weekend
From the most exorbitant to the tightest budget,
there's something for everyone to enjoy this weekend
at the Suncoast Boat Show at Ken Thompson Park in
Sarasota.
Free fishing clinics featuring local guides and
"fashion shows" will fill the stage each day. The
Florida Guides Association will host clinics on fresh-


First half over for little leaguers


By Scott Dell
AMICC Little League President
The first half of the little league season has
ended. Quality Builders and Tip of the Island played
Saturday afternoon in a winner-take-all (first half)
season playoff game. Members on both teams played
tough and, in the end, Quality Builders and Manager
Gary Miller became first-half champs.
There has been a great deal of excitement during
this period of play, with even more exciting games
expected to come in the minor leagues.
The major league game of the week had to be D.
Coy Ducks versus Kiwanis. This game had a lot
riding on it; if Kiwanis defeated Ducks it would force
a playoff between Haley's Motel and Ducks.
The game proved to be a thriller, stretching into
extra innings.
In the top of the seventh, Ducks hitter Michael
Patterson hit a double and later scored the winning
run on a Justin Dries single. Ducks defense then held
tight in the bottom of the seventh with two spectacu-
lar catches by outfielders Presten Copeland and
Mathew St. Claire.
By winning this game, D. Coy Ducks and Man-
ager Lou Fiorentino became the first-half champs.

water and saltwater fishing throughout the weekend.
And both Saturday and Sunday, at 3 p.m., they'll
have the "sizzling bikini fashion shows produced by
April Fashions of Pompano Beach." It doesn't take
much imagination to figure out what that's all about
More than 300 boats will be on a display, giving
you the chance to-compare prices and features among
those boats that interest you. From inflatables to mo-
tor yachts, most of the manufacturers will be there.
There'll even be an array of used (they call them
pre-owned these days) boats to look over.
But wait, there's more. You can look over the lat-
est in boat gear too. For example, there will be air con-
ditioners, water filters and all the juicy electronics. That
last group is a favorite of mine, though to tell the truth,
I don't own any of it these days.
But if you've never played with a GPS system, this
is your chance to look one over, and be amazed at how
these things really do.work. Imagine, something little
bigger than a package of cigarettes (remember them?)
that links up with 9 or more satellites as you hold it in
your hand.
And the price keeps coming down every year.
So check out the boat show. There's plenty of free
parking, or you can come by boat if you like. Admis-
sion is $5 for adults, $2 for children 6-12, and children
under six are free.

More Bay signs
There'll be even more signs for boaters to read in
Sarasota Bay soon. Now the Sarasota City Commission
has decided more signage is the answer to its problems
with shoreline homeowners complaints, mostly about
those pesky Jet-skis.
First there was talk about a lot of new "No Wake"
zones, but that approach was neither quick nor easy. So
the solution is now to expand existing city codes by
including "shoreline" in the city's 6 mph speed limit.
Previously it was illegal to exceed 6 mph within
150 feet "of any dock, wharf or bridge," not in a "main
channel." Now it's illegal within 150 feet of the shore-
line too.
Look for 29 new signs in the Bay to remind boat-
ers of the new regulations.

Tanks ahoy
Last weekend a total of 10 40-ton main battle tanks
donated by the U.S. Army were added to two of the
artificial reefs Sarasota County has created in local
waters. The M-60's were divided into two groups, with
five each going onto the M-9 reef site 12.9 nautical
miles west of the Venice Inlet and the M-8 reef site
12.8 miles west of New Pass.
Sarasota County Coastal Zone Division deserves
credit for putting the program together. Funding comes
from both the Army and Florida saltwater fishing li-
cense fees.
They may not exactly be plowshares, but fishing
reefs have to be the second best use I can think of for
the Army's old tanks.
See you next week.

Kings, mackerel
By Capt Mike Heistand
The kingfish run is in full force in the Gulf now,
and as long as the wind stays down there should be
some good action on those fast-moving kings. Back-
water anglers are catching lots and lots of redfish
right now.
Kevin at the Rod and Reel Pier said pier anglers
are catching a few redfish, mackerel, blue runners and
a few snook.
Dave at the Anna Maria City Pier said fishers
there have been catching a few keeper snook, some
mackerel and some late-season sheepshead.
Jamie at Miss Cortez Fishing Fleet said their
four-hour trip averaged 80-125 head of Key West
grunts, sand perch, black sea bass and porgies. The
six-hour trip averaged 150-225 head of vermillion
snapper, mangrove snapper, porgies, Key West
grunts and grouper. The nine-hour trip averaged 50
head of red and black grouper, mangrove snapper,
scamp and lane snapper.
Capt. Zack on the Dee Jay II said snook were
the best bet last week. Stan, Bob and Addie Lenke
of Illinois had the week's best charter with a limit
catch of snook topped with a 35-inch monster. War-
ren Fienga of Ohio caught a seven-pound snook on
his eight-pound-test line. Other action with Capt.
Zack included redfish, trout and flounder.
Carl at Perico Island Bait & Tackle said wade
fishers are catching some nice-sized trout and snook
in the bays, and on the beach flounder seems to be
the best bet.
Capt. Dave Pinkham is doing well on his half-day
charters with kingfish, barracuda and cobia near most
of the offshore structures.
Capt. Rick Gross has been able to limit out on
snook most days, and brought back a limit catch of
kings one day last week.
Capt. Phil Shields has been catching lots of king-
fish, red grouper, mangrove snapper and yellow tails on
his charters.
SCapt. Mark Bradow has caught lots of redfish,
trout and some huge linesiders, some stretching more
than 37 inches long.
On my boat Magicwe've been averaging about 20
redfish per trip, as well as some keeper snook.
Capt. Tom Chaya has been catching snook, reds
and lots of trout.
Bill at Island Discount Tackle said he's hearing
good reports of kingfish being landed in the Gulf.
Grouper fishing is remaining stable, and there are
plenty of Spanish mackerel being caught offshore. In
the bays and Sound, reds and trout seem to be the best
bets, with good reports starting to come in from keeper-
sized snook caught in the backwaters around Anna
Maria Island..
Good luck and good fishing.
