Hats off, Znika in for Anna Maria vacant post


By Cynthia Finn
Islander Reporter
Max Znika, former city commissioner and interim
mayor, has been appointed to fill the Anna Maria com-
mission seat vacated by Mark Ratliff five weeks ago.
The action came at a special meeting Oct. 26. Hav-
ing changed their minds about drawing a name from a
hat, commissioners reviewed applications from 14 in-
terested candidates, agreed on the qualifications of five
or six and settled on Znika.



Cortez Bridge


closure


extension


draws ire of all
By Paul Roat
Glenn Ivey must have thought he'd entered the house
from hell when he went to Bradenton Beach on the night
before Halloween to brief business owners, citizens and
officials on the status of the Cortez Bridge closure.
Perhaps the fact that Cortez now resembles a ghost
town had something to do with the eerie atmosphere.
Ivey, an engineer with the Florida Department of
Transportation, was faced with jeers, boos and a gen-
erally disgruntled audience when he explained why the
bridge, scheduled to be closed only for the month of
October, would remain closed to motorists through at
least early December.
Cortez businessman Brian DeLosh probably
summed up the audience's sentiments best when he
said, "This is like trick or treat: we got the trick and you
got the treat. The contractor said he'd be working 24
hours a day on the bridge why aren't they?"
Bradenton Beach Mayor Katie Pierola was also
outspoken in her opposition to the 39-day extension to
the planned 30-day closed status of the bridge.
"Why is it Cortez village and Bradenton Beach get
such shoddy work?" she asked a mute Ivey during
Monday's meeting. "The big rumor around here now
is that because we fought [the DOT's 65-foot-center-
clearance bridge plan] this is the treatment we get."
At the urging of Bradenton Beach City Council-
man John Kaufmann, Ivey did agree to several terms
regarding the bridge closure:
Once the bridge closure time period is over, par-
tial lane closures will take place during evening hours.
Signage around the bridge will "be reviewed and,
if additional signage is needed, we will deal with that,"
Ivey said.
A sign blocking a sidewalk at Third Street South
will be moved so sidewalk passage is possible.
Ivey waffled on demands by the audience to force the
bridge rehabilitation contractor, PCL Civil Constructors,
to work around the clock to speed up the repair work on
the bridge, apparently believing that the incentive bonus
of $10,000 per day for besting the Dec. 7 deadline was
incentive enough to have the work completed.
And Ivey said he had "no idea of how much money
it will cost" for the extension of work after additional prob-
lems were discovered during the bridge repair project.
Those problems include removal of a lead-based paint
used as a primer coat on the bridge in the 1950s. The lead
paint is toxic, and federal environmental regulators have
outlawed its use and demand strict removal guidelines.
Ivey said other problems with the bridge included the
use of rivets instead of bolts in its construction, causing a
longer time to remove the rivets than anticipated, and re-
placement rather than repair of other bridge parts.
In an effort to speed up the work and provide bet-
ter communication between workers and city officials,
Pierola appointed a three-member citizen committee to
review the bridge repair. The members are Bradenton
Beach residents Ida Cuthbertson and Jim Kissick and
Cortez's Linda Molto.


The vote was 3-to-1 in favor of the only candidate
who already has commission experience. Commis-
sioner George McKay was opposed.
"It's not a personal vote," said McKay to Znika. "I
have other reasons for saying no."
The appointment will last until the city's Feb. 13
elections. Znika says he will run for a two-year term at
that time. He will be sworn in formally at the
commission's Nov. 14 work session.
Znika, 69, served as a commissioner from February


1987 to December 1994, at which time he was elevated
from vice mayor to mayor for two months, replacing the
late Mayor Ray Simches. He lost to Mayor Dorothy
McChesney in a bid for election to that seat last February.
Znika is a 15-year resident of Anna Maria. Despite
the loss to McChesney, he has remained active at City
Hall, seldom missing a commission meeting.
Following the vote, McKay suggested that Znika
resume his previous assignment as Waste Management
liaison and offered to pick up some of Ratliffs roles.


Vande Vrede charges in World Finals
Bret Vande Vrede of Holmes Beach pulled off a second place overall for the 785 limited class and an 11th

Anna Maria beach issue


goes to voters Feb. 13


Anna Maria's 1,500-plus voters will decide for
themselves whether their city should try to get in on the
50-year federal beach-renourishment project or just let
Mother Nature do her thing.
The city commission was split two for and two
against at the Oct. 24 meeting attended by 40 citi-
zens. The decision was unanimous to put a beach ref-
erendum item on the city's Feb. 13 election ballot.
Mayor Dorothy McChesney and Commissioner
George McKay spoke in favor of trying to be included
in the Manatee County Shore Protection Project. Vice
Mayor Chuck Shumard and Commissioner Doug
Wolfe were opposed.
There were no raised voices during the hour-long
discussion, which included questions and comments
from 11 audience members and answers from Jack
Gorzeman, Manatee County environmental projects
coordinator.
Anna Maria opted not to participate in the 1992-93
federal, state and county project that widened the
Gulffront in Holmes Beach and Bradenton Beach as
part of a 50-year plan to restore and maintain those
beaches.
The Manatee County Commission will vote Nov.
7 whether or not it wants the U.S. Army Corps of En-
gineers to consider pumping emergency sand back onto
those beaches next year to restore them to pre-Hurri-
cane Opal conditions. There was a possibility that Anna
Maria could have asked for inclusion in the Island
project at that time.
Because the city commission was deadlocked on


the matter, there is no chance that Anna Maria can par-
ticipate in any emergency restoration that may take
place next year.
However, if the referendum comes out in favor of
beach renourishment, the city can still petition the
county, state and the Corps for inclusion in the remain-
der of the 50-year agreement. Under that agreement,
renourishment is scheduled for approximately nine-
year intervals, unless major storm events mandate in-
terim emergency restoration.
If emergency restoration takes place on the Island
next year, it may buy some time and the maintenance

Bay Program


plan signing at


Leffis Key


Friday

The official signing of a master plan outlining res-
toration and preservation of Sarasota Bay and the sur-
rounding area will take place Friday, Nov. 3, at Leffis
Key in Bradenton Beach.
The Sarasota Bay National Estuary Program's con-
cluding document, the Comprehensive Conservation
and Management Plan, will be approved by U.S. En-
vironmental Protection Assistant Administrator for
Water Robert Perciasepe and EPA Regional Adminis-
trator John Hankinson Jr. at the Friday ceremony.
Also scheduled to appear are Congressman Dan
Miller, Florida State Rep. Mark Flanagan and a host of
state, regional and local officials.
The public is invited to attend the event, scheduled
for 4:30-5:30 p.m. at the Leffis Key Coquina BayWalk,
east of Coquina Beach.
The Sarasota Bay Program came into being in 1989
at the urging of local officials concerned about the di-
minishing productivity of the Bay. As part of a federal,
state, regional and local effort targeting Bay problems
and developing a consensus for solving them, the Bay
Program involved hundreds of people in a five-year
study.
After spending almost $1 million on technical stud-
ies, scientists identified increasing stormwater runoff
and declining natural habitat as pivotal problems in the
area. Recognizing the importance of stopping pollutant
flow into the Bay, local governments began programs
to slow the flow of stormwater into the Bay. There
were also massive land changes made to key areas
where exotic vegetation was removed and replaced
with native plants.
As a result, the Bay began to come back to life.
While the technical work went on, federal and state
money went to a score of smaller projects aimed at
specific Bay restoration and education efforts. Several
parts of the Bay area were transformed into mini-parks,
with nature trails and interpretive signage aimed at
explaining the natural systems of the Bay parks such
as Leffis Key, Sarasota BayWalk on City Island, and
Quick Point on Longboat Key.
Excessive nitrogen flow into the Bay was ad-
dressed by the Florida Yard & Neighborhood program,
a citizen-driven program that calls for low-mainte-
nance, low-water plantings in private yards. By using
native plants, fertilizer needs are reduced and excessive
chemicals kept from the Bay. Examples of the Florida
Yard program are the Tingley Memorial Library and a
small city park off Pine Avenue in Anna Maria City.
Friday's ceremony, sponsored in part by The Is-
lander Bystander, marks the end of the study process
for the Bay and the start of the implementation stage of
restoration and preservation of Sarasota Bay.
Continued efforts will take place to expand sewer
lines in northern Sarasota County to remove the need
for septic tanks. The wastewater from the sewer plants
will be re-used in city and county landscaping with a
goal of eventually eliminating all treated effluent dis-
charge into Sarasota Bay.
Wetland habitat will continue to be improved if
goals of restoring 18 acres of B ayfront property a year
are realized. Improving the quality while reducing the
quantity of stormwater runoff will also take place with
the continuance of the Florida Yards & Neighborhood
program.
As stated in the Comprehensive Conservation &
Management Plan for Sarasota Bay:
"During the past 50 years, human activities have
caused a slow but steady decline in the health of
Sarasota Bay. Only recently has the community noticed
improvements in the northern and central portions of
the Bay, largely resulting from concerted government
action to improve habitat and water quality.
"Significant improvements in water quality have
been measured as a result of a 25-percent reduction in
pollution reduction Baywide due to improvements at
the City of Sarasota and Manatee County wastewater
treatment operations.
"The CCMP proposes to continue initiatives to
restore the Bay that began during the past five years."


Simches honored by city he loved
Betty Simches, right, widow offormer Mayor Ray Simches of Anna Maria, accepts a posthumous 1994 Distin-
guished Citizen of the Year award from Mayor Dorothy McChesney at Anna Maria's recent Fall Homecoming
celebration. Simches' brother, Gabe, another active Islander, was also in attendance, listening attentively
beneath the shade of a City Hall tree to a long list of Ray's accomplishments in the city he dearly loved.

I OIL SPILL DISCOVERED IN HOLMES BEACH


By Bonner Presswood
Agencies converged on the basin at Crabby
Bill's this week to determine the cause of what U.S.
Coast Guard Chief Wade, executive petty officer of
the Cortez Station, termed an "oil pollution dis-
charge probably crank case oil or fuel oil."
Sgt. Laird Canfield of the Florida Marine Patrol
and Peter Mitchell of the Manatee County Environ-
mental Management Department assisted Wade in
investigating the possible source of the contaminent
on Tuesday. Chief Wade said the Coast Guard will
"lock it off as close as we can."
He said the Marine Safety Office of Tampa is
responding and is responsible for monitoring and
assessing the civil penalties. This will open up the
federal pollution fund and they'll do the clean-up,
possibly even to include the bulkhead and the boats
in the marina, according to Wade.
The Coast Guard and other agencies, including
the Emergency Operations Center and Holmes
Beach Police Department, were notified last Friday
and Saturday of high levels of pollutant by Mark
Modisett of Captain's Marina.
Modisett, disappointed by what he termed the
slow response from official sources, acted on his
own, cleaning up contamination in the basin with
absorbent pads and containing the source of the spill
at the storm drain with an absorbent sausage boom
on Friday.
On Saturday the pollution was pouring into the
basin once again but no action was taken by the re-
sponding agencies, including Paul Panick from EMD.
Tuesday morning all the agencies were notified
again when the storm drains in the area of Crabby
Bill's and the Island Shopping Center began to pro-
duce the strong odor of fuel oil.
A check at the basin revealed contaminants
again entering the water from the storm drain.

now scheduled for 2000 or 2001 could be delayed a
year or two, Gorzeman told The Islander Bystander.
Of the Anna Maria residents who addressed the
commission Oct. 24, four spoke in favor of joining the
Island project and three were opposed. Two couples
appeared to be undecided.
McChesney opened discussion by presenting a pro-
posed resolution to the county commission asking for
consideration on inclusion in both the long-term project
and next year's possible emergency maintenance.
"We seem to have a history here," she said, "of the
Corps saying we have a problem and we don't do any-
thing about it. I consider the project a 50-year safety
plan."
Shumard said he was "adamantly against"
renourishment due to "poor quality sand" that was

Once again, Chief Wade responded along with
the fire department, Holmes Beach Public Works
Director John Fernandez with a plan for the storm
drainage system, EMD agent Peter Mitchell and
FMP's Officer Canfield.
The Cortez station sent a trailer of absorbent
pads and sausage booms for containment at the storm

pumped onto the Island's southern beaches. That sand
disturbs him aesthetically and, as the director of the
Island's Turtle Watch organization, it concerns him
environmentally.
McKay and Wolfe opted to hear public comment
before issuing their own opinions.
In the end, McKay expressed concern about recent
erosion that has uncovered rocks from Gulf Boulevard
north "that have never been visible before" in his life-
time.
"I think we'd be selling this city short if we didn't
get in on this insurance plan," said McKay. "I'd hate
to see any homes or streets lost."
Wolfe sided with Shumard. "I think we should just
let nature do its thing," he said.
With the split decision apparent, Wolfe then
moved for the referendum next February. All agreed
and the majority of the audience exited the chambers.

Bank officials question alarming bill

issued in Holmes Beach


By Pat Copeland
Islander Reporter
First National Bank of Manatee officials, ac-
companied by representatives of their alarm com-
pany, asked the Holmes Beach Code Enforcement
Board last week for leniency on a bill of $1,475 in
false alarm fees.
Violations occurred between January and Au-
gust, said Police Clerk Gary Stephenson. The facts
are the police reports and the witnesses are the po-
lice officers; therefore, witnesses would not need
to be called, he said.
"When it goes off, we notify our security
company immediately and it responds the next
day to work on the situation," said Robert
Matejcek, senior vice president. "Normally
these are mechanical or software situations, and
they're intermittent problems, not problems that
are easy to find."
The bank does not dispute the fact that there
were false alarms but asked for leniency on the
fine, he said.
"Honestly, I think the charges are excessive,"
added Sue O'Connor, branch manager.
Lon Guarino of Mosler Inc.,said the company
feels it has solved the problems occurring in the
new system, and there have been no false alarms
since August.
Chairman Grant Beer asked board members
to look at each violation individually and elimi-
nate any it felt were not valid. Only those caused
by external power failure or acts of God, such as
lightning, could be eliminated, board member
Roger Lutz said.
Sometimes the components have been weak-
ened by power surges or lightning strikes and do
not fail until weeks later, but that is almost impos-
sible to determine, replied Ron Burt of Mosler.


City Attorney Patricia Petruff pointed out that
nine of the original 18 violations were dismissed
by the police department because of weather and
other problems.
Could any of the false alarms come from at-
tempted break-ins? asked board member Carol
Williams.
If juveniles were outside the vault area bang-
ing on the wall or if a skateboard hit the wall, it
could set off the alarm, or someone could attempt
a break-in and not leave any evidence, Guarino
replied.
"If there was any suspicion that someone was
trying to get into the bank, it wouldn't have ended
here (with the report)," noted Lutz. "It would have
been a big deal."
The board has no discretion to change the fine
set in the ordinance, it can only determine if the
violation occurred, said Lutz.
In the past the false alarm fees were protested,
the council reviewed them and agreed not to make
any changes, added Petruff.
Were bank officials aware of the fee sched-
ule? asked board member Bill Saunders.
O'Connor said she was not aware of it, and
the bank was billed for the full amount at one
time. Matejcek said he was shocked by the fee
schedule.
Normally the city would bill each month, ex-
plained Stphenson, but due to a turnover in police
clerks and problems with the department's com-
puters, the bill was not sent until the fine reached
$1,475.
"Even if you were billed after each alarm, you
couldn't have done anything differently, noted
Williams.
The board voted to uphold the fine and gave
the bank 30 days to pay it.


City-wide yard

sale set for

Bradenton Beach
Yard sales should mark Nov. 11-12 in their calen-
dars. Officials in Bradenton Beach will waive a yard sale
fee for that weekend in the hope that residents will band
together for one huge garage sale.
Residents thinking about a little fall cleaning
should start gathering their trash er, cherished but
no-longer-needed items for the weekend sale. Offi-
cials say no individual signs will be needed "since the
city as a whole will be the garage sale location."
Hours are 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday, 10 a.m. to 4
p.m. Sunday.
"Residents are requested to place items for sale at
the front of their property," Vice Mayor Dick Suhre
said, "and items not for sale should be out of sight."
Shoppers are urged to "make a day of it Bring your
pickup and $$$$$$," Suhre added.

Council questions employee endorsements


By Pat Copeland
Islander Reporter
Police Chief Jay Romine's endorsement of a com-
pany producing a drug education booklet had Holmes
Beach Council Chairman Luke Courtney questioning
the city's endorsement policy last week.
The company, L.A.W. Publishing, is soliciting
advertising from local businesses for an anti-drug
booklet to be used by the police department, said
Romine, and will give the booklets to the department
free of charge.
"We're starting a community-oriented police pro-
gram which is going to require a great deal of publica-
tions that will be given out to students at the school."
Romine explained. "If I wanted to go out and buy that
material in order to have enough to give to the students,
we wouldn't be able to afford it in our budget."
L.A.W. Publishing operates in over a thousand
police departments nationwide, he said. The depart-


ment will get booklets to distribute, based on the city's
population, whether any ads are sold in the city or not.
"Everyone who's called me has been in support of
it," he noted. "They just wanted to make sure the com-
pany was legitimate. That's why the company's repre-
sentatives have a letter from me. This is a well-founded
organization."
"Isn't this information available through resources
somewhere else?" asked Courtney. "There are busi-
nesses in Holmes Beach that could put this together for
us and the community would benefit from the rev-
enue."
"If you buy it," replied Romine. "The city is ben-
efiting from it at no cost to the city. I don't see a prob-
lem."
Courtney said he has a problem with it. He said he
thought it should have been brought before council.
"That's an administrative action," Councilwoman
Carol Whitmore said. "It's not something council


needs to approve. We pay our department heads to
make these decisions. You have to draw the line some-
where."
Did he know any business in the city that could
provide the same service? Councilman Don Maloney
asked Romine. Not for free, replied Romine.
Courtney said a local publisher who could have
handled the production of the booklet contacted him
and asked how the booklet was approved without com-
petitive bids.
"I have people coming to me wanting to do busi-
ness with the police department, and I don't think it's
reasonable to second guess every decision I make,"
responded Romine.
Romine said he was introduced to the services of
L.A.W. Publishing at a convention.
Councilwoman Billie Martini agreed with
Courtney, and Courtney said he would study the issue
further.


Public safety summit opens

dialogue among agencies


Participants agreed the first Manatee County Pub-
lic Safety Summit last week was successful in opening
the door to further dialogue.
The summit was held to allow for the exchange of
ideas among representatives of the county's public
safety agencies on problems they foresee in the future
and ways to provide better service.
Anna Maria Fire Chief Andy Price said it was a
"positive step for the county" and Fire Commission
Chairman George Jackson said it was "long overdue."
One of their main concerns has been anticipated
changes in the county's Emergency Medical Service
and how it will affect the fire district.
Both praised Bradenton Fire Chief Jim Hackle's
assessment, "The issues boil down to the decision
makers. If we are sincere about providing emergency
services to the people of Manatee County, then let's
break the barriers down and do it. Let's get the egos out
of the way and let the citizens be number one."
Dr. Stephen Korcheck, president of Manatee Com-
munity College, asked participants to address the issue
of the increasing demand for services and the limited
dollars to fund those services.
Some expressed concerns similar to those of Price
and Jackson.
"Manatee County EMS is in the process of chang-
ing its system, which will possibly include reducing the
(ambulance) units at night," said David Byington, EMS
paramedic. "How will the fire departments react to this
change?"
"The fire district would be very concerned should
the licensed pre-hospital care provider in our district re-
duce services," said Henry Sheffield, chief of the
Braden River Fire District. "If the county commission
decides to cut back services, I think our board would
seriously look at picking up that gap. You might see the
fire district approach the county about becoming the
licensed provider."
Darrell Phillips, chairman of the Braden River Fire
Commission, agreed with Sheffield.

Price said it is hard to respond when the fire dis-
tricts have not been informed about specifics of the
proposed changes.
The county is currently in contract negotiations
with EMS and cannot comment on the matter, County
Administrator Ernie Padgett replied, but he assured fire
personnel that they will be informed of the all the op-
tions.
"We're not a licensed provider but we do provide
the first response," Jackson said after the summit. "Any
changes could increase the demand on us. We don't
want to take over EMS, but if it decreases service, we'll
look at avenues to provide that service."
"It's evident that the fire districts are concerned
about what's happening with EMS," added Price. "Our
major concern is how it will affect us will it increase
our costs and work load? We need to be prepared to
respond."
Several of the summit's participants suggested
training citizen volunteers to aid in relieving increased
work loads. Longboat Key Police Chief Wayne
McCammon noted that police departments, which have
been traditionally resistant to using volunteers, have
begun to change that attitude.
McCammon also decried the unfunded state man-
dates placed on public service agencies.
"We have to convince people at the state level that
if they require us to do something, they have to come
up with a way to pay for it," he said.
A third area agencies must look at is the types of
services they give, McCammon said. He gave ex-
amples such as getting rats and snakes out of people's
homes and chasing dogs on the beach. He noted, "Gov-
ernment can't be all things to all people. They must
take some responsibility for themselves."
Participants agreed to form committees to examine
legislative issues, plan a county-wide public safety fair
and examine volunteer coordination, media relations
and public education. The next forum will be held in
January.

Bridge referendum on
Anna Maria ballot
The Anna Maria City Commission decided
Oct. 24 to add a referendum item about the pro-
posed Manatee Avenue Bridge replacement to
the city's Feb. 13 election ballot.
There was brief discussion about whether the
referendum will be in time to prove anything, but
the commission felt it was worth giving voters an
opportunity to say how they feel anyway.
The Florida Department of Transportation
will hold an administrative hearing about the
bridge on the Island on Nov. 27, a hearing that
may well seal the fate on the proposed 65-foot-
center-clearance fixed-span bridge to the Island
in Holmes Beach.
The wording of the Anna Maria referendum,
as approved by the Island Elected Officials, will
be:
"I support rehabilitating and adding one or
more safety lanes to the present Manatee Avenue
Bridge instead of replacement with a 65-foot-
clearance fixed-span bridge. Yes or No."









Holiday show
Arts, crafts, food, fun and a festival atmosphere
will fill the inside and outside of the Anna Maria Is-
land Community Center Saturday and Sunday, Nov.
11 and 12, as the Holiday Arts and Crafts Show
kicks off the sixth annual Heritage Days Festival
sponsored by the Artists Guild of Anna Maria Island.
The show will be open from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.
both days and admission will be free. The Commu-
nity Center is located at 407 Magnolia Ave., Anna
Maria.
More than 85 Florida artists will display for sale a
large variety of handcrafted wares including paintings,
pottery, jewelry, wearable art, Christmas specialty
items and more.
There will also be a Unique Boutique of treasures

Holmes Beach trailer ordinance dragging along


By Pat Cepeland
Islander Reporter
The Holmes Beach City Council, bogged down last
week by issues surrounding a proposed ordinance on
trailer parking, agreed to continue the discussion at its
next work session.
At its September meeting, council passed on first
reading an ordinance making it legal for residents to park
travel trailers, such as pop-up campers, in their back or
side yards. This would give owners of travel trailers the
same rights as owners of utility and boat trailers.
A problem surfaced at the October meeting when
a resident told council that some homes, such as those
in Seaside Gardens, do not have side or rear yards and


others do not have access to their side yards. Council
agreed to take the ordinance back to the drawing board.
Trailers could be parked in enclosed carports, ga-
rages or driveways, said Councilwoman Carol
Whitmore.
City Attorney Patricia Petruff reminded council that
the proposed ordinance is an attempt to loosen up the cur-
rent ordinance in which trailers must be parked in garages.
"If you feel it's a problem for specialized neighbor-
hoods, you could put in some type of variance or spe-
cial exception procedure," she said. "I think you have
to be very careful. I'm not sure it's a valid hardship just
because someone has decided to enclose a garage and
make it into an extra bedroom or den and foreclosed his


opportunity to park something in that garage."
Seaside Gardens has its own rules prohibiting trail-
ers, particularly in garages and carports, said Lee
Edwards, president of that neighborhood's association.
"You have different neighborhoods and different
situations, but if you get a lot of variances you start to
muddy up things," resident Bob Jorgensen said.
Other questions arose concerning the difference
between large, bus-type RVs and smaller RVs and how
RVs are licensed.
In the current ordinance, self-propelled RVs are
exempt, possibly because they may be used as day-
to-day vehicles, Petruff noted. She said she would
research the matter.

Driver quiz
If you enter the public beach on Manatee Avenue,
how do you go north from the parking lot? Let's say
you just wanted a peek at the Gulf, a quick cup of cof-
fee, a newspaper or to make a call at the public phones.
Answer: You U-turn in the parking lot, go back to
the stop sign and turn left across three lanes of traffic
into traffic yielding on the curve.
"Danger, danger, Will Robinson," comes to mind
- the alert from the robot on the old television series
Lost in Space.
Obviously, people who know much better than
those of us who have lived here and visited the public
beach for 20 or 30 years have decided we can't exit
north from the north end of the beach parking lot.
They need a new sign at the entrance to the public
beach. You know the one, "No re-entry northbound."
As a matter of fact, "No Left Turn" signs popped up
all over the area north of the Manatee County Public
Beach on the curve on Gulf Drive, in the beach park-
ing lot and from both sides of 43th Street at the next in-
tersection.
In case you hadn't noticed, the speed limit has been
reduced on Manatee Avenue on the bridge and cause-
way from 50 to 45 mph.
Coming onto the Island, the speed limit reduces to
40 mph just before the light at East Bay Drive.
The next reduced speed sign appears at the north-
bound curve just past the beach entrance. There the
limit is 25 mph. The next speed limit sign you encoun-
ter is posted at 35 mph at approximately 44th Street on
Gulf Drive, two blocks past the curve heading north,
and two blocks before the school.
Fact of the matter is, you'll pass cars going 55 to 60
mph coming off the bridge heading north past the beach
- and the school at something more like 40 mph.
John Green, a citizen concerned with pedestrian
safety, told us he asked Holmes Beach Police Chief
Jay Romine about reducing speed limits in this same
area and Romine told him that wouldn't be necessary.
According to Green, the chief said that wouldn't help.
Well, of course not He obviously had this plan -
which will surely necessitate a traffic light at Gulf
Drive and Manatee Avenue.
We've needed crosswalks throughout the Island for
the many pedestrians who prefer to reach the beach and
shopping on foot.
We need bike paths all over the Island.
We need a great deal of improvements in engineer-
ing for all the Island starting with lower speed limits.
We believe more lives will be saved with lower speed
limits and with little impact on the flow of traffic.
Anything BUT another traffic light, please.

Heads in the sand?
After attending this week's Anna Maria Commission
meeting which addressed the question of beach nourish-
ment, I was amazed and profoundly disappointed by the
lack of leadership, disregard for our city's future, and bla-
tant self-interest shown by two of our commissioners.
Commissioners Wolfe and Shumard voted against a
resolution that would simply make our city eligible for
beach nourishment in the event that we would need it The
commissioners were not voting to nourish the beach, but
simply to give our city the option to move forward if the
need arose.
Mr. Wolfe's opinion was "that we should let nature
take its course," quoting an obscure author whose scien-
tific credentials were limited to living on the Island for
many years and observing that the "sand on the beach
comes and goes."
Mr. Wolfe was in attendance two weeks earlier when
genuine experts in coastal management with training and
experience in coastal engineering and ecosystem manage-
ment all emphatically agreed that Anna Maria is losing its
beach and that the only effective way to stop it is through
beach nourishment. Mr. Wolfe has chosen to ignore ex-
pert scientific advice and gamble our city's future on the
unpredictability of Mother Nature.
Mr. Shumard was also present to hear the experts two
weeks ago and has also chosen to ignore their advice. His
reasoning to oppose nourishment of our beach is, unfor-
tunately, strictly motivated by self-interest.
As most of us know, Mr. Shumard iS in charge of the
Turtle Watch program in our area. I applaud his hard work
and commitment to this cause and heartily endorse this
program. Mr. Shumard's only objection to beach nourish-
ment was that a nourished beach would make the sand too
hard for the turtles to lay their eggs.
Mr. Shumard is apparently placing the well-being of
the turtles ahead of the responsibility to the citizens and
their property in Anna Maria. By the way, the environ-
mental expert at the commission meeting assured Mr.
Shumard that research studies showed that renourished
beaches allow turtles to lay their eggs successfully.
If the beach continues to erode as predicted by the
scientists and engineers, privately owned real estate and
homes will be lost This will decrease the tax revenues to
the city. Roads, sidewalks, beach walkovers, and other city


property is likely to be damaged or destroyed. This will
further cost the taxpayers money to repair or replace.
We also need to realize that the beach is a barrier
against flooding during storms. Without beach nourish-
ment, flooding will move further inland causing a greater
risk to personal safety and property.
Beach nourishment will cost the taxpayers nothing
and will prevent a potentially disastrous loss of city rev-
enue. Bradenton Beach citizens did not pay one penny for
their project a few years ago.
We need to take advantage of the federal and state
funding available now. Funding for nourishment will not
be available in the future. This is an one time opportunity
to protect the property, citizens, and economic care of the
community.
Please vote for beach nourishment in the upcoming
referendum. We cannot afford to gamble away the future
of our community.
Douglas Wendt, Jr., DDS, Anna Maria City

No go of 'takings' bill
I was really disappointed that the "takings" bill spon-
sored by U.S. Senator Bob Dole didn't pass because it
thwarted my plans to make millions here in Holmes
Beach.
The bill alleged that industries have an absolute right
to poison our air or rivers with their wastes or do whatever
they need to make the most money they can.
If we didn't want them to, we'd have to pay them for
"lost" profits.
This seemed really fair, since everyone knows the
planet belongs to the corporations and the rest of us who
want to breath or go swimming or fishing should be grate-
ful for any crumb we can get.
So if Dole was able to establish his wonderful idea
into law, I planned to take it to the local level and build a
30 no, a 50-story hotel resort on my property here.
If the city didn't want me to, it would have to pay for lost
profits.
Every good Republican on the Island would certainly
think that was fair.
Unfortunately, I overheard a neighbor saying he was
going to start a nuclear waste dump. Wonder how much
we'd have to pay him to change his plans.
David Beard, Holmes Beach










THOSE WERE THE BAYS
Part 7, Turn-of-the-Century Anna Maria
by June Alder


Bradentown's first trolley left the barn on Dec. 22, 1903.


TROLLEY TIMES


If you are a certain age, you surely
remember a bright-eyed Judy Garland
belting out "Clang, Clang, Clang Went
the Trolley" in the classic movie about
the 1904 St. Louis World's Fair. Or
perhaps you were fond of the pint-sized
"Toonerville Trolley" careening
through the countryside in the old
comic strip of the same name.
Those were the days, the first de-
cade of the 1900s, when trolleys were
all the rage. Every town yearned to
have one.
In 1903 the nation was entering a
period of prosperity and growth. Not to
be left behind, the community of
Braidentown decided to incorporate
and to stretch its boundaries westward
to include the boat-building center
called Fogartyville. (At the same time
the "i" was dropped from Braidentown
- it really had gotten into the name
because of a clerical error.)
Two bright, young entrepreneurs
decided the time was right for a trolley.
They were John A. Graham, son of
Judge E.M. Graham, county schools
superintendent, and H.W. Fuller, mem-
ber of a prominent mercantile family in
Bradentown. The partners announced
that their electric line would eventually
replace Manatee River commercial
traffic and, when extended to Anna
Maria Key, make it a leading tourist at-
traction.
John Graham lived in a big house
on the banks of the Manatee River in
what is now East Bradenton. He de-
cided to begin the trolley line at his
doorstep. Lumber for the railroad ties
was rafted down from the pine forests
up-river to Graham's dock. The passen-
ger and freight cars arrived by steamer,
and so did the dynamos for the power
plant to supply electricity for the line.
Graham hired a sizable work force
(mostly blacks) to lay the track gener-
ally following the route Manatee Av-
enue was to take. It terminated at an


imposing wharf and warehouse com-
plex at the end of today's 26th Street.
On Dec. 14 the trolley made a trial
run of two of the new, up-to-the- minute
passenger cars with general manager
Fuller as conductor. The cars raced
through town with the bell clanging as
everyone stopped to gawk.
The official opening was Dec. 22,
1903. People came from miles around
for the celebration some arriving in
the newfangled "horseless carriages."
There were speeches by community
leaders, including Dr. J.C. Pelot, chair-
man of the event (he gave the county
land for its courthouse). And in a rous-
ing declamation Graham predicted that
"a new epoch of history" had been ush-
ered in for Bradentown and its environs.
During the Christmas holidays so
many people took joy rides on the line
that an express run was added.
It was a promising beginning. But,
alas, the line didn't pay off. Most citrus
growers continued to ship by river and
there weren't enough potential passen-
gers to fill the trolley car seats. After all,
the combined population of Manatee
and Bradentown amounted to less than
2,000 souls at the time.
The trolley never reached Anna
Maria Island. Its proprietors decided to
close it down by the end of 1904. And
there never was another trolley on the
streets of Bradentown.
Graham and Fuller weren't discour-
aged though. They went on to become
major real estate moguls in the Tampa
Bay area. H.W. Fuller later lived for a time
on Anna Maria Key, where his sons
Walter and Julian grew up. H.W. founded
the Favorite Steamship Line that served
Anna Maria Island for many years.
(More about the remarkable Fuller
family in later colums.)

End of the line
for the trolley in
1904 was a
wharf on the
Manatee River.

The Island Poet
Since they closed the Cortez Bridge, Manatee Avenue traffic is a beast,
Just try it some morning when all the workers go east.
Or in the afternoon as it goes so slow as you go the other way,
While all the drivers inspect the bathers along Palma Sola Bay.
And if the bridge goes up as a sailboat slowly goes past,
You will be very much in luck if you don't run out of gas.
Soon the Island will be like a castle with a great big moat,
And the only way you'll leave it is to go out and buy a boat.

Skyway Jack's not so
Skyway anymore
Heading over to Skyway Jack's restaurant on the St.
Pete side of the big bridge for breakfast has always been
a treat for the senses. The witty signs, sexist T-shirts and
big rooster on the roof are all part of the ambiance.
The breakfast there comes in heaping portions and
the grits are the best I've ever experienced. I can't fig-
ure out why and it continues to be frustrating to me.
The cook behind the counter on a previous trip said
they're nothing special. They just keep them "steam-
ing hot in a pot all morning with the lid on," he said.
On the way there, we pondered if there'd be a line
at the door. There always is. "What difference does it
make," I said. "We're in no hurry."
But as we drove past the front door there was no
sign of life. No one in line. The outdoor signs were
stripped off the walls. The rooster was gone. The space
where the walk-in cooler sat alongside the parking lot
was vacant.
We stopped to ask some marina patrons what hap-
pened but they didn't know.
"Remodeling maybe," they replied to our desper-
ate inquiries.
As we pulled out we saw the sign across the drive-
way from the front door "Moved Sept 5 to ..."
Stunned and dismayed as we were, we hopped
back on the interstate to the next exit and followed the
sign directions just a few short blocks to busy U.S. 19
and the new location of Skyway Jack's.
If nothing else, forgetting our hunger, we had to
know what had happened. After all, a few years back,
when the Florida Department of Transportation an-
nounced plans for the new Skyway Bridge, they
claimed Jack would have to go to make room for the
approach to the bridge.
Citizens and the St. Petersburg Times were up in

arms. They petitioned the DOT and campaigned to save
the landmark restaurant The winning results included a
special exit and access road to accommodate the loyal
patrons of Skyway Jack's (and the adjoining marina.)
We first quizzed the waitress/seater at the door.
"What happened?" we said.
She told us the landlord at the marina tripled the
rent so Jack decided to get out.
Breakfast was just as good as ever. Some of the
bumper stickers and signs are re-hung on the walls. The
place actually looks similar to the old digs complete
with a row of counter seats. But instead of the cook's
flipping eggs on the grill behind the counter, they're
hidden off in a kitchen with just a pick-up window view
of the dining room.
We asked Cherie, Jack's daughter who was
cashiering on the Sunday of our most recent visit, what
happened as we paid our tab.
She too said the rent tripled. "Dad tried to fight it
but basically, the lawyer said if the landlord wants to
triple the rent, there's nothing you can do. They wanted
$2,100 a month and there's just not enough revenue,"
she said.
So, basically, the very valuable lesson learned from
Jack is that you CAN fight DOT and win.
I hope SAM and BOB are listening.

The line still forms at the
door of the new location
of Skyway Jack's restau-
Srant in St. Pete. The
familiar rooftop rooster
at the marina location
was being erected by the
road sign on U.S. 19

& week.







So many celebrations
Last week we joined the owners of Rebecca's Bis-
tro, a charming conversion of the former Smurfs in
Bradenton Beach, for In opening celebration.
Owners John Zinn and Raul Mendonca are promis-
ing to provide the fine American breakfast we've come to
expect at this beach front spot, but they've added so much
more to the menu, the ambiance and the whole rejuvena-
tion we see happening in Bradenton Beach.
Raul's wife Susan is responsible for the very
proper British accent you'll find greeting you at the
door while Raul is from the island of Madeira in Por-
tugal. Zinn is the American contributor.
He was raised in the restaurant business, his fam-
ily having owned steak houses in the midwest includ-
ing McNeal's Black Angus in Muskegon, Grand Ha-
ven and Grand Rapids. Zinn eventually came to Florida
and met up with Raul at Pepins, a well-known dining
spot in St. Petersburg and Port Charlotte.
Raul's background includes culinary schooling in
Switzerland and years of experience on Royal Viking
and Royal Caribbean cruise lines, a yacht charter ven-
ture and until most recently in management at Pepins.

Birthdays abound
November must be a good month for entrepre-
neurs. Several long-established business owners on
Anna Maria Island are celebrating their birthdays in-
cluding Ralph and Doreen Russell, owners of Rotten
Ralph's in Anna Maria.
Norm and Jane Ches at Ches's Pasta Plus in
Holmes Beach join Rotten Ralph's in celebrating seven
successful years of business.
As noted in Bob Ardren's outdoor column this
week, Cannons Marina on Longboat Key is celebrat-
ing a whopping 40 years. Owner David Miller says his
dad taught him the boat business when he was just 7
years old a lesson well-taken obviously.

Beach Bistro turned 10 years old this week. Owner
Sean Murphy was considered foolhardy by some to
become the first restaurant on Anna Maria Island to
offer fine dining and continental cuisine.
To his credit, the Island now has many successful
offspring of fine dining and a wide assortment of first-
class establishments all apparently doing quite nicely.
Bistro will mark its anniversary quietly but a big
celebration is planned for Thursday evening, Nov. 9, to
benefit All Children's Hospital.
Once again, the tent will go up in the parking lot
at the end of 66th Street at the Gulf alongside the Bis-
tro and the "stars" will come out to contribute to the
worthwhile cause.
A small but exclusive art auction and dinner high-
lights the event.
Contributing to the success of the evening with
"food stations" at the event are Sandbar, Beach House,
Mar Vista and The Pier restaurants as well as the Mike
Carter Construction Company "Grill Team."
Major donors for the second annual affair include

A little hot under the collar


By Katharine Wight
Islander School Correspondent
Bonner Presswood was feeling a little hot under the
collar. Janet Aubry had sent her to the community cen-
ter auction with instructions to bid on "Mayor for a
Day" as a birthday gift for her daughter Suzanne, with
a bid limit of $250.
But there were so many people? What ifBonner '*
was outbid?
It sounds like a chapter from a Bobbsey twins
book. (Come on ... didn't you ever read the one
about the auction?) N
This time, however, it was true. But just like
Mrs. Bobbsey, Presswood, publisher of The Islander
Bystander, was clever and resourceful. When "Fire
Chief for a Day" came up first, she bid on it just in
case she lost the bidding on "Holmes Beach Mayor
for a Day."
And she got both! (She temporarily forgot
about a price range.) "Just as well," Bonner
thought. "Maybe Suzanne's sister will want it
and I'm more than happy to make the additional
contribution."
Well, I am Suzanne's sister, and I didn't
care to be chief or anyone else. And
Suzanne preferred to be mayor. But who
wants to throw away an opportunity?


A prize solution
That's why we, the Aubry Family, decided to spon-
sor a drawing with The Islander Bystander.
First, we thought of a contest, a challenge for those
interested in becoming "Fire Chief for a Day." We
considered a test to demonstrate the participants "red-
hot" knowledge and summoned the following sizzling
questions.

Michael Rogers, age 4 1/2, a student at Dolphin
Daycare, please claim your prize, "Fire Chief for a
Day" at The Islander Bystander.

1) Who wrote the book Fahrenheit 451, about fu-
turistic firefighters burning books?
2) Benjamin Franklin started the first fire-fighting
company ever. Where was it built? What year?
3) True or False: Carbon dioxide suppresses fires
involving gas, paper, wood, and electrical appliances.


4) When was the Great Fire of London?
5) What Greek is fabled to have stolen fire from the
gods and given it to humans?
6) What is the approximate surface temperature of
the planet Mercury in Fahrenheit degrees?
7) What are symptoms of first-degree burns?
8) What is the definition of combustion?
9) How many Fahrenheit degrees does a high tem-
perature brick and pottery kiln go?
10) When and where was the most costly fire on
Anna Maria Island?

Foiled again
Fire Chief Andy Price said he wanted to focus
on fire safety with the kids rather than a quiz.
S We quickly reorganized, canned the contest in
favor of a drawing at the Fall Festival, and the
newspaper sponsored a booth for the fire de-
partment to hand out safety information and
take names for a drawing from kids who
wanted to be chief.
The winner is Michael Rogers, age 4
S1/2, from Dolphin Daycare!
If you still want to try answering the
quiz, send entries to The Islander Bystander
in care of Fire!, by Monday, Nov. 13. I'll
be choosing a winner from the entries with
the most correct answers and he or she will receive a
"More than a mullet wrapper" T-shirt from the news-
paper.
I can see your brains are already smoking so get
cracking. Good luck!

Special thanks to the Aubrysfor their generous con-
tribution to the Community Center and for sponsoring
the chief-for-a-day-contest with the newspaper.
Katharine is a freshman at Manatee High School, a
resident of Holmes Beach and a frequent story con-
tributor.

The birds that come with Halloween


By Bob Ardren
Outdoor Perspectives
We all grew up with those cowboy movies that gave
vultures a bad name. You know the lines, "Hmmm, vul-
tures, there must be a dead one over there."
I've come to admire vultures despite the fact that
most folks find their dining habits rather repulsive.
(They tend to eat dead stuff, but then come to think of
it, so do I.)
Anyway, the turkey vultures have arrived in our
area for the winter. They're easy to spot as they soar
high in the sky looking for dinner. Interestingly, the
critters tend to congregate in the downtown areas of our
larger cities in central Florida, since they like the up-
drafts created by all the asphalt and tall buildings.
But you can spot them high above the beaches too,
and it's their soaring habits I really admire. Although
my soaring experiences have been limited to hang glid-
ers, I can tell you catching a good updraft is a wonder-
ful sensation.
Vultures get to spend their entire lives catching
updrafts. It saves them energy, you see. One good up-
,draft can save a lot of wing flapping for a vulture and
that translates into saving a lot of energy.
According to the National Audubon Society, little
is known about the extent of the vulture's summer
:breeding range in the north. But the environmental
.group does know the critters wintering in Florida. To
;tell the truth, it sounds like some golfers I know.
So expect to see the vultures around for the rest of the
winter and then sometime early next spring they'll all head
north. At least some of them will go to Hinckley, Ohio.
That's where they have the annual Buzzard Day festival
to celebrate the arrival of the vultures.
I know, I know. Buzzards and vultures are clearly
different birds, but don't tell the folks in Hinckley
about it, 'cause they don't want to know. After all, who
ever heard of a vulture festival?

were settled. It was also when Cannons Marina was
founded and, this weekend, Cannons will celebrate its
40th anniversary. Saturday features Capt. Scott Moore
talking about backwater fishing at 2 p.m.
Sunday at 2 p.m., Capt. Rob Roberts, an offshore
specialist, will talk about his style of fishing. Roberts
is the guy who's always showing up in New Pass with
the biggest and latest arrivals in the fishing kingdom.
Not as well known as Moore here on the Island per-
haps, Roberts is regarded as one of the two or three real
solid pros working out of Sarasota.
Catch either one of these guys' seminars and you'll
end up being a better fisher.

ing to the company.
Officials of the 500,000-member recreational boat-
ing organization say they don't expect the increase to
be anything like the 25 percent hike following Hurri-
cane Andrew three years ago. But BOATUS V.P. Bill
Oakerson says some rate hikes will be needed "to make
the companies better able to absorb recent losses."
Things are far worse in the Caribbean. Storm after
storm there this season has driven company after com-
pany out of the boat insurance business.
"Rates are going up 25 percent in the Caribbean,"
according to David Williams of Berg-Williams Marine
Insurance Corp. in Fort Lauderdale. He goes on to say
that "you won't be able to buy insurance for (long-
range) cruising outside of Lloyd's of London after this
year."
Makes things seems pretty nice and easy here on

Cornucopia of good fishing catches featured this week


By Capt Mike Heistand
Cooler weather has really stirred up the fishing off
the Island. Offshore, there are reports of very scattered
kingfish, excellent catches of grouper and snapper, and
very plentiful mackerel. In the backwaters, snook, red-
fish, trout and flounder are to be had with relative ease.
There are also good reports of cobia being landed.
Jack at the Rod and Reel Pier said anglers there
are catching big snook, redfish, black drum and man-
grove snapper.
Dave at the Anna Maria City Pier said pier fishers
are catching some redfish, a few snook and mackerel.
Toni at Miss Cortez Fishing Fleet said the four-hour
trips averaged 60 head of Key West grunts, porgies and
black sea bass. The six-hour trips averaged 130 head of
lane snapper, porgies, vermilion snapper, red grouper and
mangrove snapper. The nine-hour trips averaged man-
grove snapper, red and black grouper and porgies.
Capt Zack on the Dee Jay II said Carl Punista and
Joe Kage, both of Orlando, limited out on snook while out
with him last week, with one of the linesiders stretching
to 32 inches. They also caught a few reds, one 27 inches
long, plus some trout, flounder and lots of crevalle jack.
Capt Zack said king mackerel are starting to show up out
in the Gulf, with Spanish mackerel and cobia mixed in. He
suggests you try Longboat Pass for flounder, trout, snook
or reds, and he's finding snook in the Island's canals.
Chris at Galati Yacht Basin said offshore fishers are
finding grouper and big mangrove snapper on the ledges.
Capt. Phil Shields said grouper and snapper fishing
remains excellent right now. He hasn't found the kings just
yet, but they should be moving through any day now.
Capt. Phil is also bringing in a lot of barracuda.
Capt. Rick Gross said his charters have been
catching a lot of redfish, trout up to 27 inches long, and
the snook are on the move. White bait is plentiful and
easy to get, too, he added.
Capt. Mark Bradow said he caught several big
cobia this week, with four caught on one trip alone.
On my boat Magic we've caught lots and lots of red-
fish, with some up to 37 inches long. Flounder are start-
ing to show up, and we landed several keeper snook.
Capt. Tom Chaya said trout and reds seem to be
the best bet for his charters right now.
Bill at Island Discount Tackle said redfish in the
backwater and grouper offshore were the best reports
he's heard, but snook, snapper, trout, flounder and
mackerel were also being caught.
Good luck and good fishing.
