Cortez Bridge repairs start this week


By Paul Roat
Just when you thought you could get there from
here...
Massive repairs to the Cortez Bridge are slated to start
this month. Lane closures will begin in late August, with
the entire bridge scheduled to be closed to vehicular traf-
fic in October. Further traffic lane closures will probably
take place during November, according to Florida Depart-
ment of Transportation officials.
Boat traffic will not be affected during the highway
closure.
A public information workshop will be held Thurs-
day, Aug. 10, at the Seafood Shack Restaurant in
Cortez to discuss the traffic lane and bridge tie-ups.



Group seeks


zoning change


to permit


pet pigs
By Pat Copeland
Islander Reporter
Shirley Howden-Gillett recently received outside
support in her quest to keep her pet pot-bellied pig,
Frances Bacon.
She received a copy of a letter from Pillar Pigs of
the Community Association which was sent to Holmes
Beach. The association proposes the city amend its
zoning to allow pot-bellied pigs as household pets.
The Holmes Beach Code Enforcement Board or-
dered Howden-Gillett to get rid of her pig by Aug. 14,
after city council members voted against her request to
keep it as a pet. Howden-Gillett vowed to return to
council to try and have the ordinance prohibiting farm-
type animals changed.
In the letter, Barbara Baker, the association's presi-
dent, said she has been instrumental in getting similar
zoning changes in other local communities.
"Veterinarian statements are enclosed," wrote
Baker. "Pigs make wonderful pets. They do not chase
cars, bark or bite people. They have no fleas, no odor
and shed very little."
Baker said she endorses certain restrictions on zon-
ing changes that permit pet pigs. These include neuter-
ing, spaying and registering the animal, prohibiting
breeding, requiring a certificate of vaccination and
fencing or harnessing the animal outdoors.
In closing, Baker asked what the next step is in
having the city consider a zoning change.

Representatives from the DOT will be on hand to an-
swer questions at the 7 p.m. meeting.
The major part of the $3 million bridge repair
project is replacement of engines that lift the
drawbridge's metal span. The easiest way to get at the
motors is to totally remove the metal draw, engineers
have said, spurring the decision to totally close the span
between Cortez and Bradenton Beach.
Other work scheduled includes renovation of the
bridge tender office and new lighted gates to halt traf-
fic when the bridge span is raised.
DOT's Don Maxwell told The Islander Bystander
the contractor, PCL Civil Constructors, has up to 84
days of lane closures plus the 30-day total bridge shut-


down as part of the scope of work of the project. The
contractor has a financial incentive to complete the
work ahead of schedule thanks to a $10,000-per-day
"bonus" if an estimated 20-day construction schedule
is bested.
DOT representatives met with Island officials, resi-
dents and business owners last year to determine the
best time of year for the bridge work. Business owners
said October was the slowest month of the year and,
although some residents voiced concerns about hurri-
cane evacuation, October was the time chosen to shut
down the bridge.
The draw span will be replaced if a hurricane
threatens the area. DOT officials have said.

Fees waived for Bradenton


Beach special exception


Ralph Cole received a waiver of fees for filing a
special exception to expand his business, Bradenton
Beach Sailboat Rental.
Cole requested the waiver on grounds that his busi-
ness has been renting personal watercraft the reason
for the special exception for more than five years
while awaiting city code changes to allow rental of the
zippy little boats.
Cole's business is based at the Catalina Beach
Resort, 1325 Gulf Drive, a motel owned by Mayor
Katie Pierola and her husband, Gil. Mayor Pierola did
not vote on the request due to a conflict of interest.
Fees for a special exception petition are $2,000. Cole
will have to pay for legal advertising for the request.
Councilman Walt Grace seemed to sum up the
council view when he said, "If the city was the cause
of the delay, I can understand the request for waiving
the fees. I hate to do it, but I don't think we should stick
the applicant with the fee."
The waiver of the fee was passed unanimously by
the council.
Cole is requesting a special exception to expand his
business to include the rental of personal watercraft. He
has said the council granted him a verbal approval for
the rental of the power boats in addition to the sailboat
rental in the 1980s, but no record of that verbal OK can
be found in the minutes of the meetings.
In 1990, at the urging of building officials, Cole
applied for a special exception to rent the watercraft.
However, the city codes did not have any provisions for
the rental of personal watercraft then, and the council
apparently tabled the matter until the codes could be
amended. Those amendments were approved by the


council in 1994.
Cole was cited last year by then-Building Official Joe
Romano for operating the personal watercraft rental busi-
ness without a special exception. The matter went before
the city's code enforcement board, which dismissed the
case when Romano said he believed a previous council
approved the business expansion.
With the fee matter settled, the special exception
request for operation of personal watercraft by Cole
may now come before the planning and zoning board
and then the city council. No dates for those hearings
have yet been set, although planners are expected to
hear the matter this month.

71 candles for Island's beloved 'Cracker'


By Cynthia Finn
Islander Reporter
"Well, I may be a little over-pressed," said Gib
Bergquist with a chuckle.
Such was his first humble response to a request for
an interview in time for his 71st birthday Aug. 11.
Over-pressed as in written about too much. The
hazard of being so well loved and respected in your
community.
"We don't think so," I said.
The boss had given me a note about Gib's birth-
day a few weeks prior. I felt privileged for the op-
portunity to spend some time with this Island gentle-
man known as the Cracker.
But repeated phone calls over a 10-day stretch kept
coming up no answer. Would the opportunity be missed?
During intermittent rains the morning storm Erin
passed to our north, I dialed the number again.
"You're home!" I said to the warm voice on the
other end.
Turns out Gib had been up in Washington, D.C.,
for the first time since he'd retired from the Federal
Bureau of Investigation in 1975. There're some new
travel tales for his "Cracker's Crumbs" column in The
Islander Bystander.
Feeder bands from Erin turned the afternoon dark
as I drove to Gib's the next day. The lush gardens and
tall shade trees at the front of his home were truly drip-
ping, creating a surreal entrance to another world. Gib's
world, where all things tended keep on growing.
Without words, Gib answered a question I'd had
on the way over, while tuned to the news radio.
In the shelter of his living room, yes, the FBI agent
who had testified as an expert witness many times dur-
ing his 25-year career was following the O.J. Simpson
murder trial on Court TV.
It's possible we might have both just sat down for
a spell using the outside downpour as an excuse for
nothing else to accomplish to share as spectators to
the spectacle, neither of us afraid to admit we are in-
terested in the outcome.
We didn't succumb to the temptation, the set went
off and we got down to Islander business. I hope Gib'll
write his expert impressions of The Trial down for me
in a column sometime.
We talked for almost an hour, sketching back over his
71 years, although an hour could never really cover it.
But an hour was enough time to get the full sense
of Gilbert Theodore Bergquist's love of life and fam-
ily, his fascination with history, his heartfelt belief that
every day holds something new to learn and aspire to.
Gib pulled out his scrapbooks, starting with pho-
tographic depictions of his childhood in the now extinct
phosphate mining town of Pierce, Fla., in Polk County.
"Even during the Depression, I had a fantastic


Young Marine Gib
Bergquist concentrates on
the art of carving ...


childhood," said Gib. Pierce was unique not like
one's impression of, say, a West Virginia mill town -
but rather rated at one time as the cleanest industrial
town in the world.
"Our family always stressed scholarship," Gib re-
marked. His voice was filled with love and admiration as
he described how his father got his college education
through correspondence courses and worked his way up
to president of the American Agricultural Chemical Co.
"For self-esteem," said Gib, "there's nothing like
being exposed to a good education."
We paged through the honor of being on the Polk
County all-star high-school football team and the
deeper honor of being named salutatorian of the Mul-
berry High School class of '42 with a 97.288
gradepoint average.

A carver of saints
A photo of a 19- or 20-year-old Gib in the Marine
Corps, pre-FBI, took us off on an artistic tangent. Oh boy,
yet another side of this man known for so many involve-
ments in his 15 years here on Anna Maria Island.
As that young man in the Corps "where we
spent lots of time in the chow line" Gib had taken
up woodcarving.
He brought out a bag full of thumb-sized peach-seed
caricatures perfect likenesses of Hitler, Mussolini,
Thomas Dewey and more. There was the detailed head of
an Indian chief carved into an apricot seed.
"I'd carve the peach seeds and string them on neck-
laces for my mother," said Gib. "She'd wear them
proudly and show them off, look what my son did!"
Then he brought out some 8-inch-high carved and
painted men, a Marine and an Army sergeant, and some
press he'd gotten on that "hobby" while a stateside
Marine during WW II.
"I've just recently started carving again, for the
first time since then," said Gib.
He brought out his current project, a gift for his
wife Madeleine, a native of Puerto Rico. Los tres
santos, the three kings, on a beautifully polished base
with jeweled gifts and a tiny, detailed urn.
"I've gladly entered another phase of my life," Gib
said, smiling the smile of a man completely devoted to
his wife. And to the multitude of details that draw a ful-
filling life.
"I am now a santero. A carver of saints."
Then he brought out the handcrafted, ornamental
clips of several bolo ties, another hobby.
And in the palm of his hand he held a beach stone,
white with grey flecks, an irregular rectangle a few
inches deep. A treasure picked up at the Gulf beach
during one of his daily 6 a.m. four-mile walks.
Also pre-FBI, Gib had earned bachelor's and
master's degrees in biology, which he never did use as
an agent, but which have served him well.
His trained biologist's eye attracted him to this
particular beach stone, which he said dated back prob-
ably to prehistoric times. In his spare time Gib is
scratching away layers of biological history to reveal
the branches of an ancient tree embedded in the stone.
And then we were looking at his collection of antique
grandfather clocks, some of his photography works -
including an absolutely breathtaking portrait of his wife
nursing then infant son Kevin and his footlocker from
the Corps which serves as a coffee table.

Standing with Gib in his home, filled with so many
pieces of his life, I felt a renewed sense of the privilege
of the hour with him.
This is the man, right here.

The book is the movie
There's just no sense in my trying to write a syn-
opsis of Gib Bergquist's life. He's done it himself.
And since I can admit if Gib can that I am follow-
ing The Trial, I can also admit that I hadn't yet found
or made the time to read Gib's own version of his well-
traveled escapades.
"Cracker's Crumbs," the book, is the ultimate
penned version of Gib Bergquist.
And as the last of Erin's rains subsided against the
background of a Florida sunset, I was the beneficiary
of another privilege the reading of the complete
series of "Cracker's Crumbs" newspaper columns as
published from October 1986 through July 1990.
For those who don't yet know, the book was pub-
lished in 1995 as a surprise gift for the gifted Gib. All
proceeds benefit the Anna Maria Island Community
Center's endowment trust, with the hope of raising
$15,000 for the Center's financial future.
So for your birthday, Gib, how 'bout a current plug
for the book? It's thoroughly delightful and inspiring,
just like the Cracker himself. It's a life in words by the
ultimate liver of life.
The book is available for $19.95 at the Community
Center, The Islander Bystander and the Manatee Vil-
lage Historical Park.
Thanks, Gib, for the time for this piece, and for all
the ways you give to our Island and to our children.
If you are over-pressed and I'll strongly dis-
agree that that's the case it's all because you some-
how illuminate each and every one of us with your
wisdom, your grace and your willingness to participate.
The Island community is a far better place for your part
in it.
Gee man, happy happy birthday from The Islander
Bystander.


Tyndall honored for service
On behalf of all those connected with the city
administration and especially on behalf of all
citizens, Anna Maria Mayor Dorothy
McChesney presented Frank Tyndall with a
certificate of appreciation "for stepping for-
ward to fill a vacancy when you were most
needed as public works director." Tyndall filled
the post previously for four-and-a-half years
and most recently for four months. Islander

onslaught last week Islander Photo: Paul Roat

Impact of the storm


Commercial impact of the last week's brush with
Hurricane Erin was felt at some Island businesses. Al-
though there were no long lines at the gas pump, a
spokesman at Walgreens at the Anna Maria Center
Shops said they did approximately 40 percent more
business than on a normal Tuesday in July.
Batteries and bottled water were at a premium on
Anna Maria Island. According to Frieda Swank, Eckerd
sold out of bottled water and D cell batteries on Tuesday
afternoon, almost 24 hours before the storm was due to
cross the west coast of Florida. By Wednesday morning,
the store was boarded up but open for business.
At Walgreens, assistant manager Tony Spain said
they'd sold over 120 gallons of water. At 6 p.m. they


had about 10 to 12 16-ounce bottles remaining and he
expected to be sold out at closing.
Island Foods owner Jim Gloth said he sold out of
water about 6 p.m. but he was expecting a delivery mo-
mentarily. Gloth said he'd remain open Wednesday
during the height of the storm, no matter what. "The
customers expect us to be open we just have to be
open no matter what," Gloth said.
Meanwhile, Cafe on the Beach, the restaurant at
the Manatee County Public Beach, with 80 percent of
their dining space outdoors, faced a dismal day. Cafe
on the Beach didn't open Tuesday but diners were
braving the weather Wednesday for the view of the
pounding surf from the inside dining room.

pitch some treasures from the deep to the shallows
where their metal detectors could reap them a financial
windfall. Islander Photo: Bonner Presswood

Council can move on residential rental restrictions


By Pat Copeland
Islander Reporter
City Attorney Patricia Petruff told the Holmes
Beach Council new state legislation protecting private
property rights would have little or no impact on a pro-
posed ordinance to restrict residential rentals.
In April the council said it favors rental restric-
tions in all residential districts, and there should be
a 30-day minimum rental period in the R-1 district.
Options suggested for other residential districts in-
clude a seven or 14-day minimum in the R-2 and R-
3 districts, splitting the R-2 district and a seven-day
minimum on condominiums in the A-1 district.
However, council put the ordinance on hold pend-
ing the passage of the state legislation and sought an


opinion from Petruff on any ramifications the state leg-
islation might have on its proposed ordinance.
"The purpose of the Private Property Rights Pro-
tection Act is to provide relief when a new law, rule,
regulation or ordinance unfairly affects real prop-
erty," explained Petruff in a letter to council. "At
issue in this case would be whether adoption of an
ordinance which in essence lessens the absolute pro-
hibition on conduct of a business in residential dis-
tricts could be deemed by a court as unfairly affect-
ing real property."
This would be difficult, said Petruff, because "the
owner must demonstrate that he had a legal right to use
the property as a business. Further, since residential
real estate is not appraised in the same manner as in-


come-producing property, I believe it would be diffi-
cult to obtain an appraisal showing a loss in value."
However, Petruff warned council that the legisla-
tion is untested in the court and it would be impossible
to speculate on how a court would interpret the law.
Council has not set a date for continuing discussion
of ordinance.
The original draft ordinance submitted by Council-
woman Carol Whitmore called for a 30-day minimum
in the R-l district, a 14-day minimum in the R-2 dis-
trict 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 dis-
trict there is a seven-day minimum.


Paving goes to any length in Holmes Beach


A road paving bid created a stalemate in the
Holmes Beach Council last week that lasted through
five motions before it was approved.
The sticking point was new paving proposed for
the north triangle entrance at Manatee County Public
Beach, long considered a hazardous area. Council-
women Carol Whitmore and Billie Martini have stead-
fastly opposed any new paving in the city.
The low bid of $46,055.60 with extra work at $45
per ton came from Apac of Florida, said Public Works
Supervisor John Fernandez for the following:
76th Street from Marina Drive to Palm Drive.
72nd Street from Marina Drive to Palm Drive.
Key Royale Drive from Ivanhoe Lane to the north
terminus.
62nd Street from Marina Drive to Holmes Bou-
levard.
57th Street from Marina Drive to Holmes Boule-
vard.
49th Street from Gulf Drive to the west terminus.
Fourth Avenue from 39th Street to Gulf Drive.
New paving of 75 feet of the north triangle en-
trance of the public beach.
New drain tile for 8100 Marina Drive, 8314 Ma-
rina Drive and 7300 Holmes Boulevard.
"The low bid is approximately $7,000 under bud-
get," said Fernandez. "With council concurrence, I
want to tack on some extra work. In one case it would
be the entrance to Harbor Lane to keep the cars from
digging a rut. It's a shell road near the elementary
school that dumps out onto Gulf Drive."
Martini and Whitmore voiced their opposition to
the beach paving.
"The chief and the safety committee discussed this
issue and due to the number of accidents that have oc-
curred there, if this area is not paved we are going to


.. --- -





close this street," replied Mayor Rich Bohnenberger.
Councilman Don Maloney read a letter from Chief
Jay Romine concerning proposed changes for the north
triangle entrance and the intersection of 43rd Street and
Gulf Drive.
"...As long as left turns from Gulf Drive to 43rd
Street are permitted and left turns from Gulf Drive into
the northern entrance of the beach are permitted, the
danger of rear-end collisions is great," said Romine.
"An additional danger ... is a large amount of pedes-
trian traffic attempting to cross the street from Island
Village to the beach."
Romine proposed that no left turns be permitted
from Gulf Drive onto 43rd Street, and no vehicles be
allowed into the north beach entrance from north-
bound traffic on Gulf Drive. He also proposed exits
from the area permitted only for right turns onto
Gulf Drive and entrance to the area be permitted
only from southbound traffic on Gulf Drive. The
third change is to permit no left turns from 43rd
Street onto Gulf Drive.


Changes ahead
The northentrance triangle to the
Manatee County public beach is slated
for changes to enhance traffic flow and
safety. The unpaved strip behind the
curve sign was the subject of a lengthy
- debate by the Holmes Beach City Council
last week. Islander Photo: Pat Copeland




"I agree with the changes but no to the paving,"
said Whitmore. "The more you pave, the more drain-
age problems you'll have. Paving won't stop accidents.
I think we can spend our money elsewhere."
"Haven't you ever seen a car fishtail out of that
street?" asked Councilwoman Pat Geyer.
"We'll just close the street," said Bohnenberger.
"Cars trying to get out into the flow of traffic dig up the
shell."
"I think you're trying to railroad us," retorted
Whitmore.
"Paving is part of the safety plan," insisted Maloney.
"It's to increase the safety of that intersection."
After a series of five motions brought a stalemate
vote of 2-to-2 (Councilman Luke Courtney was ab-
sent), the sixth motion was successful.
Maloney made the motion to accept Apac as the
low bidder and eliminate the paving of the triangle.
In other business, Bohnenberger announced the city
received a $10,000 grant from the Department of Environ-
mental Protection for the removal of Australian pines.

T-end dock ordinance to go to Aug. 15 work session


By Pat Copeland
Islander Reporter
On the eve of the first reading last week, the
Holmes Beach Council sent its T-end dock ordinance
back to work session.
The ordinance, designed to solve the question of
use of docks in three T-end canals fronting Marina
Drive, was revised by city attorney Patricia Petruff
following a special session on July 20. Council mem-
bers said they hadn't had enough time to review the
revised ordinance.
The canals are located between 72nd and 74th,
74th and 75th and 75th and 77th Streets. The use of
these canals is subject to claims by owners of lots in
certain Bay Palms subdivisions developed by Peder
Mickelson and Son, Inc., and their deeds contain spe-
cific language granting them the right to use a boat
space.
The proposed ordinance establishes procedures for
registration and assumption of liability of the existing
docks. Additions to the ordinance include procedures
for non-conforming use, establishment of a waiting list,
establishment of the width of a boat space, provisions
to install utilities at docks, a registration fee, dates for
registration and annual re-registration and construction
and maintenance standards.

Pier to be closed

during the day

for awhile
The Bradenton Beach Fishing Pier will be closed
during the days for the next week or so while construc-
tion workers put the finishing touches on the rock re-
vetment at the pier's approach off Bridge Street.
Bradenton Beach City Council members last week
authorized pier concessionaire Georgia Meier-McKee
to have the pier closed from 7 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Mon-
day-Friday.
Meier-McKee said trucks hauling the granite boul-
ders would at times block the pier entrance.
The fishing pier and the restaurant will be open in
the evenings.
Work began this week on replacing damaged pil-
ings at the pier, and workers should start soon on re-
placing the planking, railing and removing the pavil-
ion at the east end of the pier. That work is scheduled
to be completed in about 60 days, but the pier should
remain open during construction.


asked that discussion of the ordinance be postponed
until the Aug. 15 work session to give them more time
for review.
"These are the changes that we asked her (Petruff)
to make," replied Councilwoman Carol Whitmore.
"All I'm sure of is this is her assumption of what
we asked her to do," said Maloney.
Petruff agreed and briefly commented on a couple
areas of the revised ordinance.
"The non-conforming use section is very, very
strict," she noted. "Mr. Dye (city attorney Steve Dye)
and I are both of the opinion that the only people the
city should be granting any kind of non-conforming use
status to are those people to whom the city actually
gave some permit. There will be very few people who
will qualify."
Some who currently have docks and asked coun-


cil to add a grandfathering clause will not qualify for
space, Petruff said. Nor will those who are renting dock
space from "authorized" users.
Her designation of 10 feet per dock space may be
inadequate, she noted, and "people are suggesting that
should be 15 feet. I'm not qualified to make that call."
The city has received numerous calls from "squat-
ters" who will lose their right to a space when the or-
dinance passes, said City Clerk Leslie Ford.
"It is a right that runs with the property," explained
Petruff. "It is not a right that they can freely give away
or rent. That right to use boat space is shared with nu-
merous other property owners who live in Bay Palms.
If everybody exercised their right to use a boat space,
there would not be enough to go around."
The next discussion of the draft ordinance will be
Aug. 15 at 7 p.m.


Strict non-conforming requirements

added to ordinance


The following is a new section of the T-end ca-
nal dock ordinance establishing a procedure for reg-
istration of non-conforming use:
A. Those persons who are currently utilizing an
existing dock within the areas regulated and who do
not qualify to register for a boat space or dock may
qualify for a non-conforming use if competent, sub-
stantial evidence is presented that the dock was con-
structed pursuant to a building permit issued to the
proposed registrant by the City of Holmes Beach.
B. Those persons who qualify as a non-conform-
ing use must register on a form established by the
city for this purpose and said form shall include but
not be limited to:
1. Evidence of non-conforming status.
2. The full name and address of the registrant.
3. A description of the dock and its location.
4. Proof of existing utility service, if applicable.
5. Registration and ownership information for
the boat to be moored at the dock.
C. In addition the registrant shall acknowledge
in writing the following:
1. Responsibility for the maintenance of said
dock.
2. That the registration of a non-conforming use
may not be transferred to a third party.
3. That the registrant may not receive rental in-
come for said boat space or dock.
4. That persons other than the registrant whose


deeds do not contain a right to use a boat space in
the area regulated as specified in Section I (of this
ordinance) may not permanently moor a boat at the
dock.
5. That the non-conforming use may be re-
voked by this city if the dock is no longer utilized
by the registrant for the mooring of a boat for a
period of six months.
6. That the conforming use may be revoked by
this city on 30 days notice in the event that no boat
spaces remain available for persons qualified pur-
suant to Sections 3 and 5 (of this ordinance) to reg-
ister for a boat space.
7. That the non-conforming use may be re-
voked by the city at the direction of the court.
8. That installation of davits on the dock or
adjacent seawall is prohibited.
9. That it is prohibited to live aboard any boat
moored at the dock.
10. That the running of a business from the
dock or the use of the boat to generate any revenue
is prohibited.
D. The registrant shall also execute an assump-
tion of liability form for said dock which form will
hold the city harmless for any liability in connec-
tion with the use of said dock.
E. Application to register as a non-conforming
use must be filed with the city clerk no later than
Feb. 1, 1996.

Lucky again
Hurricane Erin's brush against the Island last week
should once again serve as a warning to us all that we
live on a fragile piece of real estate here.
Be prepared to leave that real estate when and if the
"big one" blows through.
Dr. William Gray, hurricane prognosticator
extrordinaire, has upgraded his estimate for the num-
ber of Atlantic hurricanes we can expect this season
from 12 to 16. Unfortunately, 1995 is already the busi-
est hurricane season in 50 years with five tropical
storms and two hurricanes before Aug. 1.
And as a part of Murphy's Law in action, this Octo-
ber we'll have the Cortez Bridge closed to cars.
Let's hope that the Florida Department of Transpor-
tation promise that the draw span will be immediately
replaced if a storm threatens is a promise that will be kept

Kudos to Rotarians
The Rotary Club of Anna Maria Island handed
more than $6,700 all from personal clubmember
contributions Monday night to the Anna Maria Is-
land Community Center special fund created by The
Islander Bystander to provide new lights for the base-
ball and soccer fields.
When the installation is complete and paid for, we
hope to dedicate the new lights to the memory of three
very important and significant political figures in the his-
tory of the City of Anna Maria who passed away in 1994
and 1995: Ray Simches, Mary Ross and Ernie Cagnina.
One additional honoree Snooks Adams -is still
very much with us. 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.
We applaud the efforts of our local Rotarians and
challenge other groups and businesses to join the effort.
More than $12,000 is still needed to complete the job.

Squatter alert


All those folks who have been docking for free with-
out deeded rights in the three city owned T-end canals
along Marina Drive in Holmes Beach, take notice.
The stipulations being adopted by the council are
pretty tough and it looks like a lot of documentation
will be required to maintain spaces there, even though
you may have maintained a finger dock and parked the
family vessel there for many years.
If the spaces have to be relinquished, what then?
Who will qualify to tie up and what will the cost be?
And why hasn't the City of Holmes Beach ever
charged for the use of private use of public land?
With the increasing need for wet-space, seems like the
docks could have been generating some revenue all along.

Peace, patience strained
In response to Walter Schmidt's letter regarding
the Tampa Tribune article written by Rick Barry
wherein Schmidt indicated he has an intimate knowl-
edge of Holmes Beach, although a resident of Braden-
ton, and that Barry had obviously not spent much time
here, please note:
1. Barry is a resident of Sarasota and has been for
25 years and is very familiar with the Island.
2. Barry, prior to writing his article, investigated
the situation in Holmes Beach and in reference to the
Anchor Inn situation interviewed both the bar owner,
Bob Tingler, and a number of residents in the area sur-
rounding the bar.
3. The residents surrounding the Anchor Inn are
not "getting what they paid for," that is the right to
enjoy peace and tranquillity in their homes; the right to
hear their own television sets, sit on their porches, in-
vite guests for dinner and enjoy an evening without the
deafening sound emanating from the Anchor Inn, the
right to live with the knowledge that they will not be
harassed in their own homes by drunken bar patrons
and that their children will not stumble over empty beer
cans and drug paraphernalia when they go out to play.
Schmidt's comments indicate that he feels the
homeowners near the Anchor Inn to be of no importance,
and their homes to be of little value. Perhaps if he spent
more time in our neighborhood, he'd realize that the sur-
rounding homes range in price from $100,000 to $150,000
and the homeowners are proud of their homes.
Prior to living in the home, there is no way to re-
alize the noise and devastating effect the bar has on the
neighborhood. Other neighborhood bars in Holmes
Beach are soundproofed and do not rock the surround-
ing home with their band music. So, more unsuspect-
ing people are buying homes in the neighborhood.
I found for the most part, Barry's article was accu-
rate. The noise problem began in September of 1994
when Tingler became the owner of the bar and began
bringing in loud bands to play in an unsoundproofed
area. Police were called frequently about the noise. In
February of 1995, 17 homeowners signed a petition
requesting Tingler to lessen the noise coming from his
bar whenever bands played, generally three to five


nights a week. A letter was also presented to Tingler.
It is now the end of July.
The homeowners have met with Tingler, with the
police, with Holmes Beach Mayor Richard
Bonhenburger, all to no avail. If it takes the Holmes
Beach Civic Association, newspaper articles, etc., to
help us in getting some response to this problem, then
so be it. The homeowners wish no ill to Tingler; on the
contrary, we would like him to have a successful busi-
ness but not at our expense.
Schmidt's solution to the problems would apparently
be to have left all the lots surrounding the bar vacant and
to have the neighborhood homeowners predating the bar
to simply abandon their homes. Then those who wish to
can continue to patronize the Anchor Inn bar and return
to their own homes in their own quiet neighborhoods.
We homeowners prefer a more common sense so-
lution.
Darlene Doran, Holmes Beach

Traffic gridlock can be stopped
The Islander Bystander's recent article on the fore-
cast for traffic gridlock to and from Anna Maria Island
merits new coping strategies.
The current level of service provided by the Island
trolley system and Manatee County transit will not
convert many new riders.
Metropolitan Planning Organization Executive
Director Mike Guy is correct in acknowledging the
public's desire for convenience, but what beachgoers
want first and foremost is expedience.
To that end, Ocean City, Md., reserves one lane for
bicyclists and buses only. In the Pacific Northwest, mu-
nicipal buses are equipped with bike racks which allow
people a range of movement formerly limited to athletes.
It does not take nearly as much coordination as
one may think to strap on a helmet and pedal in a
straight line. Contrary to some motorist's opinions,
bicyclists are safer riding in the road, with traffic, far
to the right.
If one half of us will forsake the car for the bike or
bus from time to time, we can delay the degradation of
our paradise for the enjoyment of all.

T fSF WERE TH1E BAYS
Part 4, Anna Maria in the Movies
by June Alder


The most sensational local movie event of the 1920s was the making of the Lupe
Velez film, "Hell Harbor," at a "pirate village" on the shores of Tampa Bay.

MORE HOLLYWOOD

DREAMS


Paul Gilmore's Boomtime attempt to
make Anna Maria Island "the Hollywood
of the East Coast" failed. But his efforts
spurred others to try their luck as movie-
makers. More than a dozen film compa-
nies were active in Tampa Bay and other
parts of Florida during the frenzied de-
cade of the Twenties.
On the other side of the state, in 1921
a California developer named Joseph W.
Young bought a hunk of palmetto jungle
18 miles north of Miami, hoping to lure
the California picture industry to Florida.
Young laid out a city in a precise
geometric pattern and called it Holly-
wood. It had a 1,700-acre downtown sec-
tion bisected by a broad avenue he named
- what else? Hollywood Boulevard.
Along its length he created circular parks
at regular intervals and at its east end he
built a splendid California-style hotel.
Young had some success peddling
his lots, but few screen celebrities forsook
Hollywood, California, for another Hol-
lywood in the wilds of Florida. Young's
dream was finished off by the infamous
hurricane of 1926 which ended the
Florida Boom. However, the city came to
life again as a retirement center for North-
erners after World War II.
Meanwhile, up in Hillsborough
County a group of promoters bought up
land around the tiny community of Ross.
They renamed it Sun City (not to be con-
fused with the later Sun City Center).
They sunk $300,000 of sucker
money into putting up a large studio built
in the then-fashionable Spanish-Moorish
style and displayed within it an oil paint-
ing of the metropolis as it soon was sup-
posed to appear. There was also a railroad
station, a powerhouse, a capacious ware-
house and a number of smaller buildings.
Like Gilmore's "Oriental and Film
City" on Anna Maria Island the streets
were named after movie personalities of
the period Chaplin Drive, Gish Drive,
Griffith Avenue, Vidor Avenue and
Pathe Place.
For a while the lots surrounding the
complex sold briskly many several
times over but few houses were actu-
ally built. When Sun City went bankrupt
in the early '30s, the whole works went
for $100. Only two pictures were ever
June Alder is on summer hiatus. This
series is a repeat from March 1994.


made there two quickie comedies star-
ring comedian Billy Moon. And they were
shot just to stave off fraud charges against
the promoters.
The major movie event for Tampa
Bay took place in 1929 just before the
good times went bad.
That year noted movie director Henry
King brought a troupe of Hollywood ce-
lebrities to Tampa to film a "talking pic-
ture" the first made in Florida. It was
called "Hell Harbor." And King spared no
expense to ensure its success, constructing
a Caribbean pirates' village where most of
the action was to take place.
Newspapers went ga-ga, reporting
every detail of the production. The stars
were "Mexican spitfire" Lupe Velez, re-
spected actor Jean Hersholt and leading
man John Holland.
When Lupe arrived in Tampa by train
Gov. Doyle Carlton was on hand to meet
her and present her with a bouquet
"It made ze gooseflesh pop on ze
skin," trilled Lupe, according to a reporter.
The vivacious actress was a wow
when she appeared one night on the stage
of a Tampa theater. She also showed up at
an American Legion dance at the Coli-
seum on Davis Islands, where the lucky
winner of a drawing got to dance with her.
And the ultimate titillation of the pub-
lic came when superstar Gary Cooper
blew into town and was spotted knocking
on Lupe's hotel door late one night.
Summer rains held up production
from time to time. The threat of a hurri-
cane sent crews rushing to lash down the
phony pirate village. But the storm died
and the movie was a hit at the box office.
Wall Street, meanwhile, was laying a
rotten egg from which hatched the
maladorous Depression which put an end
to Florida's brief movie madness.
As for Gilmore's abandoned film city
on Anna Maria Island, it was obliterated
in 1932 by the same storm that washed
away the first Longboat Pass bridge.
The Island wasn't finished as a Hol-
lywood location though. It was to glow
one more time under the kleig lights when
Metro Goldwyn Mayer brought luscious
swimming star Esther Williams to its
shores 20 years later.

Enhanced services at a decreased tax rate is what
Bradenton Beach residents have in store for them next
year.
Bradenton Beach City Council members have
adopted a tentative tax rate of 2.8947 mills, .0202 less
than the current property tax. A mill is $1 for every
$1,000 of assessed-value of property after any appli-
cable homestead exemptions are calculated.
The proposed tax rate is the first time in three years
the city council reduced property taxes. The budget will
be formally adopted after public hearings in Septem-
ber. The taxes may be lowered after those hearings, but
generally cannot be raised.
The first public hearing on the city's budget will be
Sept. 12.
City residents will see some face-lifting changes in
the city next year. Among the budgeted improvements
is $5,520 for city-wide street sweeping, $20,000 for
paving and sidewalk repair, replacement or new side-
walks and $20,000 for the Bradenton Beach Fishing
Pier modernization. The city hopes to get a grant from
the state for much of the pier work.
"This is the best budget we've had in a long time,"
Mayor Katie Pierola said.
"We have increased the level of services for our
citizens, and we're not touching our reserves to do it,"
Councilman John Kaufmann said. Kaufmann was in
charge of much of the budget work this year.
The Bradenton Beach city budget is $1,358,413.
Property taxes account for $357,756 of that sum, with
the rest of the city's revenue coming from sales taxes,




Historical society flea
market needs items
The Anna Maria Island Historical Society will hold
a flea market on Saturday, Sept. 16, as a fundraiser.
The society would appreciate donations of re-usable
items for the sale. Items needed include household appli-
ances, books, records, CD's, tapes, plants, furniture, toys,
pictures, knick-knacks, and sports equipment.
The sale will be held in the parking lot adjacent to
the Island Historical Museum, 402 Pine. Ave., Anna
Maria City.

'A Taste of Paradise'
wants your favorites
The Anna Maria Island Community Center's
fundraiser cookbook, "A Taste of Paradise," has proved
to be such a success since its publication in 1991 that
volunteers are now working on a second version.
The search is now on for Islanders' favorite reci-
pes for inclusion in "A Taste" II from hot and cold
appetizers to soups, salads, quick and complex entrees,
side dishes, casseroles, breads, all types of desserts -
you name it.
Hundreds of contributors and scores of volunteers -
headed up by co-chairmen Jeanette Cashman and Sandee
Pears -have helped to raise thousands of dollars for the
Center with several printings of the first cookbook.
Equal success is anticipated for the second version
and volunteers are needed on every level of publication.
If you have tasty temptations to submit, a palate
that loves to test, or a willingess to be involved in any
of many possible ways, please call the Community
Center at 778-1908.

Selby Gallery at Ringling School of Art and De-
sign will present "Empty Dress: Clothing As Surrogate
in Recent Art," an exhibition organized and circulated

Monday, Aug. 14, through Sept. 25.
A reception for the exhibit will take place on Fri-
day, Aug. 25, from 5 to 7 p.m.
The gallery is located at 2700 N. Tamiami Trail,
Sarasota.

franchise fees from electric or telephone utilities, li-
censes, gas taxes and other fees.
The police department takes the biggest bite out of
the city budget at $419,339. Other department budgets
include: Administration, $233,817; Planning, $82,576;
Parks, $6,189; City Pier, $18,892; Streets and Roads,
$165,070; Community Redevelopment, $17,000; Sani-
tation, $209,645; and Tingley Library, $38,415. Sev-
eral of the accounts are derived from income sources
other than taxes, such as the library (which is a sepa-
rate trust) and sanitation (from which garbage fees pro-
vide the revenue).
Probably the most controversial aspect of the bud-
get discussions centered around a salary increase for
Building Official Whitey Moran. Moran requested and
received an increase of $6,339 in his salary. The con-
troversy centered around council members' adoption of
a step pay plan last year that would avoid increases in
salaries.
Moran argued that his hiring was contingent on the
city reviewing what a fully certified building official
should be paid, and his understanding was that his ini-
tial $30,000 salary could be adjusted based on what
comparable-sized cities in Florida pay building offi-
cials. Kaufmann and Councilman Bill Campbell said
the step plan did not call for raises such as what Moran
requested; Pierola, Vice Mayor Dick Suhre and Coun-
cilman Walt Grace said Moran should get the raise.
The salary discussion prompted a decision by
council members to review the salary step plan in a
workshop scheduled for Aug. 15.


No stand on


Orimulsion
Orimulsion has received a less-than-fiery reception
on Anna Maria Island.
The Anna Maria City Commission discussed
orimulsion at a July work session but took no action to
issue a formal stand for or against the power source.
Bradenton Beach City Council members also
briefly discussed the fuel Florida Power & Light offi-
cials hope to burn at the Parrish power plant but took
no official action.
Anna Maria Commissioner Chuck Shumard said
he had attended lots of informational meetings but he
was still not ready to make up his mind that "it's a good
way to go." He said he had environmental and eco-
nomic questions.
Mayor Dorothy McChesney said, "It's not a black
and white issue, there are a lot of pros and cons." She
didn't think the city should take a stand.
Commissioner George McKay had "no problem in
voicing a concern in opposition. If we do have concerns
we should draft something." He had reservations about
Florida being the trial site for such a large experiment.
Commissioner Doug Wolfe said he had "no com-
ment on orimulsion" and Commissioner Mark Ratliff
wanted the city to somehow be involved in the issue.
"I don't think we need to say yes or no, for or against,"
said Ratliff, "but we need to voice our concerns."
McChesney asked Ratliff if he wanted to draft a let-
ter on behalf of the city and he declined. No one else vol-
unteered to put a city position down on paper at this time.
In Bradenton Beach, FPL Regional Director Ed
Rathke was on hand last month when the matter was
placed on the agenda by Mayor Katie Pierola.
Councilman Bill Campbell said he did not believe
the city should become involved in the issue. "Let the
experts handle it," Campbell said, a view that was ech-
oed by other council members.

Chamber members, Island officials and the gen-
eral public are invited to participate in a ribbon-cut-
ting ceremony at the recently renovated Bridge

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 who stand by you
when the chips are down,
You better believe that you are the most
fortunate one in town.
For you could be the richest man on
Earth, money without end,
But your life would be a total loss if you
didn't have a friend.
Bud Atteridge

Bowling for dollars
If you're up for a challenge and a lot of fun toss-
ing a 40-plus-pound ball at 10 pins set up at the end of
a polished wood alley, then mark your calendar for
Aug. 26.
Get ready to play in the Fifth Annual O'Connor
Bowling Challenge. This tournament is open to all area
bowling enthusiasts, no matter the level of experience.
It's all for fun and a good cause.
It kicks off at 5:30 p.m. at D.Coy Ducks with reg-
istration, team pairings for single players and lane as-
signments before moving over to Galaxy Lanes on
Cortez Road at 7:30 p.m.
For the party, prize raffles and awards, bowlers all
head back to the beach to Crabby Bill's between
approximately 9:30 and 10 p.m.
Although twins Billy and George O'Connor have
likely tested each other often throughout the years, this
tournament is a challenge to raise funds that provide
much needed equipment for Anna Maria Island Com-
munity Center.
The O'Connor's are challenging the community to
help them raise over $2,000 in tournament fees and
raffle donations that will buy a portable P.A. system,
playground balls, basketballs, soccer balls, hockey
equipment, and furnishings for the library and teen
room.
The $10 fee to enter the challenge includes three
games and rental shoes. The raffle tickets are $1 each,
or six for $5, and prizes include dinners at Beach Bis-
tro, BridgeTender Inn, Crabby Bill's, the Sandbar,
Alligator's and a gift certificate at Peaches Ice Cream
& Deli and "mullet-wrapper" shirts from The Islander
Bystander.
Raffle tickets are available in advance from the
twins or prize donors. You don't have to be present to
win, so even if you don't bowl, you can help this tour-
nament be a winner for youth programs.


Summer swings and rocks
At the Sandbar deck in August, RPM fills the mu-
sical bill nightly while over at the deck at the Beach
House restaurant in Bradenton Beach, The Blynders
alternate with the reggae sounds of Jam-Iya on Sunday
afternoons. Every night at the Beach House, you'll find
Tropicats, the smooth sounding duo formerly known
only as Chuck and John.
The decibel meter picks up for the funky rhythm
and blues sounds of Bird Dog Bobby and the Honey
Hounds at the Dry Dock Inn, Holmes Beach. Their
soul-tinged blues go down smooth and sweet, just like
the liquid treat they're named for. Bobby and the band
breeze through tunes by favorites like Stevie Ray
Vaughan, Peter Green, B.B. King and Herbie Hancock.
Sounds like the place to be on Friday and Saturday
nights, Aug. 11 and 12.
Meanwhile over at the Anchor Inn, local favorite
John Prestia plays Friday and Saturday night.
Sonnydaze, Bradenton Beach, has a different menu of
music nightly. Wednesday evenings acoustic guitarist
Rich Kendall accompanies psychic readings. This Fri-
day and Saturday you can see Mike Oscanyan.
A special treat for "SKA" fans is coming up at
Sonnydaze on Tuesday, Aug. 12. Otis Reem is headed

A sophisticated live performance of classical and
contemporary music by five youth orchestra members
from the Scherer family will highlight events at the
Centre Shops of Longboat Key on Saturday, Aug. 19.
The event is a benefit for Florida West Coast
Symphony's Youth Orchestra Program.
Exotic cars, Golf Headquarters tent sale and prize
drawings are all part of "Summertime Classics." In-
cluded in the drawing is a limited edition lithograph
valued at $600, a $135 bottle of Benzinger chardonnay
and tickets for FWCS events. $5 raffle tickets (five for
$20) are available in advance at The Islander Bystander
office, 5408 Marina Dr., Holmes Beach.

City closes the

gap on Crabby

Bill's docks
By Pat Copeland
Islander Reporter
After making some changes, the Holmes Beach
Council last week approved a lease for the city-owned
portion of docks in Crabby Bill's boat basin fronting
Marina Drive.
When Crabby Bill's owner, Bill Zalla, received coun-
cil approval to improve the docks in September 1994, it
was learned that two-to-four feet of the docks were city
property. At a July work session the council agreed to
allow Zalla to lease the city-owned portion of the docks
for 20 years at $1 per year, with Zalla maintaining the
seawall and docks and assuming liability.
The lease follows the direction of the council, said
city attorney Patricia Petruff, but she and colleague
Steve Dye expressed reservations about some portions
of the lease.
"We have problems with the term (20 years with
an option to renew for 20 years) of the lease," she
said. "We advised the council not to do something
that ties the hands of future councils. It is tying the
hands of council for 40 years."
The lease contains a clause that would allow coun-
cil to terminate the lease with 60 days notice, pointed
out Charles Johnson, representing SPA Enterprises
owned by Zalla.
Petruff said termination could only be for a bona
fide city purpose.
Council revised the term to 10 years with a 10-
year option to renew.
Both she and Dye are also concerned about the
rental fee of $1 per year, Petruff said. She said the
city can lease property for fair market value.
"It is Mr. Zalla's intent to run a business off these

docks and he's receiving rent and he's not paying taxes
on the city-owned property," Petruff noted. "One dol-
lar is not adequate consideration."
Councilwoman Carol Whitmore suggested $1,000
per year.
Petruff said Dye suggested the lease fee be based
on a percent of the property taxes being paid on the
basin or on a percentage of the rental income.
Johnson said he would agree to basing it on a per-
centage of the property taxes.
He would like stipulations concerning seawall
maintenance included in the agreement, said Coun-

cilman Don Maloney.
Referring to an agreement between Tony and
Eleanor Tatakis, the property's former owners,
Johnson told council, "The agreement is very specific
saying the person who is the successor in interest to
the Tatakises must maintain in good condition all that
portion of the seawall bordering the property. On be-
half of Mr. Zalla, I don't have any objection to that
language being put into the lease."
Council instructed Petruff to do so and voted to
allow the mayor to execute the agreement when all
revisions are completed.

'Joseph' sells out entire run


By Cynthia Finn
Islander Reporter
Summer theater on the Island scored a tremendous
success last week.
All five scheduled performances of Island Family
Productions' "Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor
Dreamcoat" were sold out, as was the sixth show added
to accommodate demand.
Producer Pat Russell of Holmes Beach was
thrilled, not only with the audience reception but with
the caliber of each and every show.
Her son, director and choreographer Joey Russell,
expressed deep thanks to the Island Players.
"Everything you see is theirs," he told the Friday
night audience. "We used their paint, their nails, but
most of all, their theater. Without a theater there could
be no production."
The theater is usually dark all summer. Perhaps the
awesome response to this fabulous effort spells a new
era for off-season stage in our community. Congratu-
lations to everyone involved.
The cast of nearly 30 players of all ages did a su-
per job with Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice's
popular musical.

males), sang and danced their way into our hearts, chang-
ing hats and dancing feet from the cowboy romp to the
Elvis rock to the rhythmic calypso and offering the true
essence of a grand-scale musical production.
Playing the brothers were James Thaggard, Lisa
King, Sandi Simpson, Brandi M. Helm, Bobby
Richardson, Michael Ridenour, Brian Osman, John
Durkin, Timothy Lynch and Arron Sheehan, with John
Spurlock and Ben Sheehan as the young Benjamin.
Thaggard, Durkin and Lynch did double duty as
other players, Thaggard taking center stage as Pharaoh,
aka Elvis, in the electrifying "Song of the King."
Sam McDowell (Jacob) and Dennis Kelly
(Potiphar) are no strangers to the Players stage. Their
presence in "Joseph" was a highlight.
Local high school students Monique LaBranch
(Mrs. Potiphar) and Amanda Harllee (Jacob's wife)
proved again that stage work is for them. And perhaps
Tammy Velez (Jacob's wife) will take her theatrical
talent on as she enters college.
Tricia Sheehan and Andrea Stivers were enchant-
ing as the Ishmaelites, and finally, adding their mag-
nificence, were the members of the children's choir:
Venessa Bingelli; Andrew, Angela and Ben Sheehan
(Ben was also a brother); Kelly and Nicholas Simpson;
and Clark and Christina Spurlock.
The entire cast deserves an additional and sincere
round of applause. They sent us home, young and old,
delighted with the evening and looking forward to
more from Island Family Productions.
Behind the scenes, Producer Pat Russell added
her well-known hand to original and eye-catching
costume design. Joey Russell gets raves not only for

Welcome to the beach but watch your step


By Bob Ardren
Outdoor Perspectives
The largest stingray ever caught anywhere was
found off Bradenton Beach and weighed more than 600
pounds. The creature was 6 1/2 feet wide and showed
up in the net of a commercial fisher back in 1969.
At least that's the word from Rube Allyn at Great
Outdoors Publishing in St. Petersburg. Great Outdoors
has been keeping track of offbeat records like this for
years.
You probably won't ever encounter a stingray any-
where near 600 pounds the average is closer to five
pounds but if you go into the water this time of year
you'll surely encounter stingrays at one time or an-
other. You see, their season is really just getting under-
way.
Jay Moyles, chief of marine rescue for Manatee
County, says the southern stingray is the biggest prob-
lem along our local beaches, and they're massing on
offshore reefs and the flats right now in preparation of
their annual beach party. And as surely as one thing
follows another, the rays will be followed into the shal-
low water by sharks which find the rays tasty.
There are big sharks in our waters. In fact, Dr. Bob
Hueter, senior scientist at Mote Marine Laboratory,
tells me lower Tampa Bay and the mouth of the Mana-
tee River are known nurseries of hammerheads, so we
can always expect to see some of them around.
Hueter also points out that many of the local sharks
we call hammerheads are really the much smaller
bonnetheads that rarely exceed five feet. Real hammer-
heads are just juveniles at that size. At maturity, ham-
merheads often reach 17 to 18 feet long.
Moyles says the peak season for stingrays tends to be
about the end of August For whatever reason, perhaps
because the water temperatures are generally highest then,
the stingrays come into the shallow water to feed.

Just to further complicate things, the semi-annual
migration of cownose rays often coincides with the
inshore movement of stingrays. About the end of Au-
gust the far-less-dangerous cownose rays will be mak-
ing their way south along our coast, (they go north in
the spring), and folks tend to confuse the two. Granted,
in the water they look a lot alike.
But the cownose rays show up by the hundreds
and, often, thousands. Swimming in large schools, (and
there's your hint how to tell them from stingrays),
cownose rays don't bury themselves in the sand, just
waiting for someone to come along and step on them

the way stingrays tend to do.
Moyles says he's had "three to five incidents of
person versus stingray recently," and "the stingrays
always win." He's expecting that number to increase as
we get deeper into August.
So start shuffling those feets to avoid the stingrays,
don't worry much about the cownose rays that can look
like an invasion from Atlantis when they show up, and
have some fun in the water.
Like so many things in life, maybe just the tiniest
prospect of danger makes it even more fun.
See you next week.


July 31, Search and rescue/assistance. Sta-
tion Cortez received a report of three capsized
vessels east of the Skyway Bridge with people
in the water. The station launched a boat to in-
vestigate and contacted Air Station Clearwater
to dispatch a helicopter to assist. Before arriv-
ing on scene it was learned that the vessels in
distress were being aided by other vessels in the
area and the people in the water were divers.
Aug. 1, Boarding. A 26-foot pleasure craft
was boarded in the Gulf of Mexico and issued
a boating safety violation for not having an FCC
license for an operational VHF-FM radio and
having flares that were out of date.
Aug. 2, Search and rescue /assistance. Sta-
tion Cortez received a report of a sailboat unre-
ported enroute from Tampa to Port Arthur,
Texas. Station Cortez conducted a communica-
tions check with all marinas, bridges and an-
chorages from Egmont Key to Charlotte Harbor
with no results. The vessel was eventually
found adrift in the Gulf south of Cape San Blas.
The people on board were hoisted from the ves-
sel by a Coast Guard helicopter.

August redfish explosion starts


By Capt. Mike Heistand
August is redfish month for the Island's backwa-
ters, and if catches of late are any indication, this is
going to be a banner year for reds. Offshore action
slowed last week with Hurricane Erin's passage, but
expect grouper and snapper action to continue to be
good to excellent as the surf dies.
John Home at the Anna Maria City Pier said pier
anglers there are catching a lot of mackerel and some
keeper redfish, with some of the reds coming in too big
to keep.
Kevin at the Rod and Reel Pier said fishers there
have been catching redfish, black drum, snapper, whit-
ing and a lot of sand perch.
Lee at Miss Cortez Fishing Fleet said the four-
hour trip averaged 60 head of Key West grunts. The
six-hour trip averaged 125 head of vermilion snapper,
scamp, lane snapper and a couple of grouper. The nine-
hour trip averaged 100 head of black grouper, man-
grove snapper and a few amberjack, with one tipping
the scales at 40 pounds.
Capt. Zack on the Dee Jay II said before the storm
he was catching reds up to 34 inches long and some
catch-and-release snook up to 12 pounds in size. There
are "scads" of mangrove snapper out there, and big reds
are hitting on the flats. Capt. Zack said he's been spot-
ting some big cobia near the flats, and the fishing
should improve this week.
Capt. Dave Pinkham said he's been doing very
well with his grouper and snapper fishing, as well as

squalls during Hurricane Erin at the Rod and Reel
Pier last week. Islander Photo: Bonner Presswood.
catching lots of trigger fish, big barracuda and some
dolphin.
Chris at Galati Yacht Basin said fishing was good


over the weekend, with grouper hitting in about 70 feet
of water, bottom fishing good for red and black grou-
per and lane snapper. There's also good reports of king-
fish, bonita and black fin tuna.
Carl at Perico Island Bait & Tackle said wade
fishers are bringing in good catches of redfish and
small catch-and-release snook. Bait is really starting to
show up in the Bay, he added.
Capt. Phil Shields said the weather has gotten
better and offshore fishing has therefore improved by
the day, with good catches of grouper and fair catches
of snapper. Capt. Phil said there are still a few kingfish
out there, too.
Capt. Rick Gross has been doing good with catch-
and-release snook and a few 50-pound cobia.
Capt. Mark Bradow said he's been catching
trout, reds and snook, with reds the most plentiful fish
out there.
On my boat Magic the word is "redfish," with the
tasty spotties only going to become more plentiful as
August advances.
Capt. Tom Chaya has been catching back trout,
reds and catch-and-release snook. He also predicts this
fall's linesider season will be excellent.
Bill at Island Discount Tackle said grouper and
amberjack action offshore has been excellent. Backwa-
ter fishers are finding redfish the best bet, some more
than 35 inches long. On the artificial reefs, look for
mangrove snapper.
Good luck and good fishing.
