Island bridge hearings begin


by Paul Roat
Administrative hearings on the proposed replace-
ment to the Anna Maria Island Bridge began with a
falter Monday and Tuesday, too.
Hearing Officer Robert Meale delayed much of the
Monday proceedings due to the Florida Department of
Transportation's failure to provide timely witness and
evidence lists to Save Anna Maria attorney David Levin.
Tuesday's meeting got off to a late start, too, when
the meeting location was changed from Sarasota to
Anna Maria City Hall.


The only witness questioned Monday, Florida
Department of Environmental Protection Assistant
Director of Environmental Resources and Permitting
Janet Llewellyn whose testimony was expected to
take less than a half hour stretched on for 90 min-
utes, providing a clue that a less-than-rapid process can
be expected for the hearing.
At issue are a number of administrative cases that
are being heard in one hearing on the proposed new
replacement bridge between Holmes Beach and the
mainland at Manatee Avenue.

Commission waives, then

waves beach mailer forward


By Cynthia Finn
Islander Reporter
Discussion ran in circles for an hour and 15 min-
utes and there was confusion among commissioners as
to what the final and previous versions of the
motion meant.
But in the end the Anna Maria City Commission
voted 3-to-2 Nov. 28 to pay retired Holmes Beach en-
gineer John Adams $2,500 to design a beach-protec-
tion education packet It will be reproduced and mailed
at unknown city expense either to all city residents or
just to registered voters.

Second forum in January
Included in the mailer will be the announcement of
one more citizens forum on the beach renourishment
issue to be scheduled some time in January.
Feb. 13 election ballots will include a referendum
seeking Anna Maria voters' opinions for or against the
city's trying to get in on the next 40-plus years of the
federal, state and county shore protection program that
renourished and maintains the Gulffront beaches of
Holmes Beach and Bradenton Beach.
The city commission was split 2-to-2 on the mat-
ter in October, prior to the appointment of Commis-
sioner Max Znika as the three-month replacement for
the seat vacated in September by Mark Ratliff. The
vote for a referendum was unanimous.
"Sure feels like four out of those five seats are up
for re-election here soon," said one of the six Anna
Maria residents in the audience to The Islander By-


stander after the Nov. 28 meeting. "One item on the
agenda and they were in a world of indecision."
The "one item" was Mayor Dorothy McChesney's
desire to rediscuss Adams' proposal for a "primer" to
give Anna Maria voters an education in beach erosion
and renourishment.
Adams is president of the Anna Maria chapter of
the Florida Shore and Beach Preservation Association.
He is a vocal proponent of the Island restoration project
and designed a countywide mailer he says is respon-
sible for getting Manatee County commissioners to
support the project in the late '80s.
He has told the Anna Maria commission the refer-
endum will come up negative if voters aren't educated
about "technical terms they don't understand."
Adams made a second presentation to the commis-
sion Nov. 28, saying that "clearly 40 feet of Anna
Maria City has been lost in the last year." He said a
repeat of the 1921 hurricane will mean the loss of
"more than one-third of the tip of the city, from Pine
Avenue north."
Znika was the first to comment, saying his major
concern is the potential loss of "a huge tax base" due
to erosion or a damaging storm.
Vice Mayor Chuck Shumard, who voted against the
project in October, didn't think the city should pay "to put
out a position one way or the other." He believes there's
"more beach out there than [he's] seen in a long time."
McChesney came out in favor of the city's joining

Beach; voters

say 'no' to

megabridge
Bradenton Beach voters selected Leroy Arnold as
mayor Tuesday and indicated their desire to
rehabilitatate the Anna Maria Island Bridge.
Arnold received 41.2 percent of the vote. A total
of 367 voters, or 33.5 percent, cast ballots in the elec-
tion.
Walt "Charlie" Grace, a current councilman in the
city, received 34.5 percent of the vote. Businessman
Dan Goodchild received 24.3 percent.
Vote tallies were:
Arnold, 149 votes.
Grace, 125 votes.
Goodchild, 88 votes.
The bridge referendum question, dubbed an "of-
ficial straw ballot" on the proposal to rebuild the Anna
Maria Island Bridge at Manatee Avenue, was over-
whelmingly supported by voters in Bradenton Beach.
A total of 71.4 percent, or 252, indicated their
desire to see the current bridge rehabilitated rather than
torn down and rebuilt with the proposed 65-foot cen-
ter-clearance bridge with a fixed span.
Total vote counts for the bridge question were:
Favoring restoration, 252.
Opposing restoration, 101.

Bridge hearings slated for Island this, next week

secutively until Dec. 15. It is expected the meetings
will resume the week of Jan. 8.
Meale said he would probably not provide a forum
for residents to debate the replacement bridge, but in-
stead would rely on witnesses called by all sides to
present the case to him.
The proceedings will be conducted as if in a court
of law, he said, with witnesses, rebuttal, evidence, ex-
amination and cross-examination allowed.
When the hearings are concluded, Meale ex-
plained, he would produce a recommended order pro-
viding for findings of fact, conclusions of law and his
recommendations.
If any of the sides of the proceedings object to


the outcome of the administrative hearings, the mat-
ter may be referred to the district court of appeals.
However, that court will not have another "trial" of
the evidence, but will review the evidence and tran-
scripts of the administrative hearings and reach a
verdict.
Levin argued for and received a delay in the process
when DOT's Ffolkes was late in sending him a list of that
agency's witnesses and evidence she planned to present.
Tuesday, DOT District Permitting Engineer James
R. Wilts Jr. gave some basic parameters of the bridge.
The bridge width a fact of some concern of late
- will be about 54 feet That distance includes two 10-
foot shoulders, two 12-foot travel lanes and a six-foot-
wide sidewalk, Wilts said.
He described the construction method planned for


the bridge, including a grated platform upon which
workers would construct the bridge sections. The
grates, he said, would allow light to pass through the
platform and would therefore not shade the delicate
seagrass beds under the structure.
DEP district permitting chief Ken Huntington was
also called to testify Tuesday.
Huntington said the DEP had originally favored
denial of the permit to construct the bridge due to its
alignment to the south of the existing span.
However, marine patrol officers and other navi-
gational experts pointed out the northern alignment
would adversely affect the channel leading to
Galati's Marina and Leverock's Restaurant.
The DEP eventually issued a permit calling for the
southern alignment.


Head on
A head-on collision took place at the intersection of
Gulf and Palm Drives in Holmes Beach last week at
4p.m. The driver of the Nissan Sentra, right, Roger
Stell of Hampshire, England, stated he did not see
the stop sign at Gulf Drive to continue north into
Anna Maria City. He failed to yield the right of way
to a south-bound vehicle driven by Robert Abbott of
Bradenton, according to the police report. Julie
Stell, seated in the front passenger seat, sustained
injury to her right knee and shoulder. The
Stells'daughter, Emma, 21, sustained minor injuries
to her face. Both were treated and released from
Columbia Blake Medical Center later that evening.

Anna Maria beach mailer prompts furor of debate

the Island project last summer. She said Nov. 28, "I feel
strongly that facts need to be put in a book on the his-
tory of erosion in our city. People need the facts. People
read their mail and it's our obligation as elected offi-
cials to educate them."
Shumard said the mailer would probably end up in
the trash can at the post office. "Newspapers are the
place you reach them the best."
Then it was Commissioner George McKay's turn.
McKay's seat is the only one that is not up for grabs in
February. He voted for the restoration project in Octo-
ber and wanted another commission vote now that all
five seats were filled.
"The referendum was a last resort because we
split," he said. He urged the commission "to jump on
the beach-project bandwagon" and move forward now
with some firm action.
He suggested another vote on issuing a resolution
to the county, either to get in on the rest of the 50-year
protection program or possibly to join in the emergency
restoration probably scheduled for 1996.
McChesney said it was too late for the emergency
sand so McKay posed another question to Shumard and
Commissioner Doug Wolfe, who issued the second no
vote in October.
"If the community says yes in the referendum,"
asked McKay, "would you turn the vote around?"
Answered Wolfe, "If 400 people say they want
renourishment, then by God I'm going to change my
vote."

Insurance 'for nothing?'
McChesney tried to bring discussion back to the
item up for action the mailer. "We need to get a
book out on the facts. I don't think the people of this
city understand that this is an insurance policy for our
city for the next 40 years ... for nothing."
"For nothing?" asked Wolfe. "Who pays for it?
Eventually we the taxpayers pay for it" He also wanted
to know if the city was going to provide information


against beach renourishment.
A few minutes later Wolfe said, "I'm not for or
against beach renourishment. I'll do what the voters of
this city tell me to."
"That's a cop-out," snapped McKay. "We're
elected to make the hard decisions."
At that point, more than 30 minutes into discussion
with still no motion on the table, hands rose in the au-
dience.
Resident Robert McElheny suggested that a lack of
citizen attendance at budget time and at that night's
meeting indicated that perhaps "they don't understand
how important this issue really is. The city needs to
educate them."
Judy Adams said she would definitely read a let-
ter from the city. She said she had attended the early
October beach-experts forum and still had questions. "I
think you owe the citizens of Anna Maria information."
Tom Turner wanted to know what the cost of the
mailer would be beyond Adams' $2,500 fee. No one
had an answer on per-unit cost.
Elaine Burkly wanted more forums, suggesting
that a mailing "won't accomplish anything unless
there's a resource for people's questions." She also
wondered what information a mailer would contain that
the city didn't already have in hand for people to read
"if they wanted to."
McKay then made a motion "to retain Adams for
spearheading of the beach-renourishment program"
with the city to pay his fee and whatever the cost of
copying and mailing would be.
There was no second and discussion continued for
another 30 minutes.
Shumard felt a mailer "would be too technical and
confusing for the people." He favored more forums. He
also said, "If the referendum vote comes in in favor of
this renourishment, I won't hesitate to change my
vote."
Znika liked the forum idea. "Then from there, see
what the turnout is and see if we should go with a let-
ter."
McKay wanted to know if Adams could head up


the forum. "Let's take some action tonight," he said,
amending his motion "to have Adams be part of the
team." There was still no second.
After more discussion, McKay tried another ver-
sion, specifying that the city retain Adams as a consult-
ant, with the city allocating a total of $3,500 "for either
the primer, forums, newspapers, TV or radio."
This time Znika voiced a second.
Wolfe said he didn't understand that motion andl
then talk centered on whether to mail to all city resi-
dents or just voters. No decision was made. Minutes:
passed and Wolfe said, "I believe we should have a unit
cost for a mailer before we vote on a mailer."
McKay said it would all come out of the $3,500. "I
just want to not wait for another stretch of time to take
action."
McChesney pushed to get back to the original topic
- yes or no to the primer and urged McKay to re-
state his original motion, the first one without a second.
Even City Clerk Peg Nelson expressed confusion but
she and Shumard urged the mayor to call the question.
"I see a primer going out with a date for another
forum," said McKay.
"No," said Wolfe. "That's not clear. I thought we
were having a forum and then seeing if we needed a
primer."
The vote was taken and came out McKay, Znika
and McChesney for a primer including announcement
of a January forum, Shumard and Wolfe opposed.
Adams asked if he could meet individually with
each commissioner "for their input into what the primer
should say."
In other action, the commission discussed a $4,326
proposal to install aluminum Bahama shutters on all the
windows at City Hall for aesthetic and protection pur-
poses. No motion was made, no consensus reached.
The matter will be scheduled for a work session.
McKay and Public Works Director Phil Charnock
briefly discussed a status inventory to be made of the
city's drainage system. Commissioners agreed that
Charnock should obtain quotes on an underground
photographic process to assist in the inventory.

Architect unveils plans for city buildings


By Pat Copeland
Islander Reporter
Whether to put band-aids on present city buildings
at a cost of more than a quarter of a million dollars or
build a new city complex for nearly $1.2 million is the
decision facing the Holmes Beach City Council.
Architect H. Patterson Fletcher presented plans for
both options, as well as a master plan for the grounds
surrounding city buildings, to the council in a special
work session last week. Funding for any remodeling or
construction would be from the city's share of the one-
cent school tax and must be used for infrastructure.
Council asked Fletcher to present three options for
consideration: remodeling present city buildings to
comply with Americans with Disabilities Act require-
ments, a combination of remodeling and reconstruction
of buildings and construction of a new city complex.
Fletcher said he discounted the second option due to
high costs and limited benefits.

Option I remodeling to meet
ADA requirements
City hall restrooms would have to be modified and
enlarged which would reduce the size of the council
chambers. A drinking fountain would have to be added
as well as an area in front of the counter to accommo-
date wheelchairs. Other costs would include purchas-
ing doors and hardware, replacing the air conditioner,
installing new handicapped railings, widening the
mayor's door, adding audio visual equipment, indi-
vidual traveling microphones and a system for the hear-
ing impaired and repairing the leaking south wall.
A unisex restroom would be added to the police
department, as well as a drinking fountain. Other costs
include installing railings and a new landing, widening
the police chief's door and replacing doors and hard-
ware.
The report noted that the lower floor is not ad-
equate for work or storage due to the damp and musty
conditions, there is no natural lighting or ventilation
and the air quality is extremely poor. In addition, the
building has no storage space.
The restroom in the pubic works building would
require modifications. Other costs include installing
railings and a new landing, purchasing doors and hard-
ware and installing a drinking fountain. The report
noted the maintenance garage is in extremely poor con-
dition.
A ramp system would be added between the build-
ings. Roof systems on all buildings are at the end of
their life span and need replacement.
Project costs are as follows:
Site work, which includes modifying the parking
lot to provide direct access to wheelchairs and adding
new sidewalks, ramps and walkways $61,548.
City hall $$61,788.
Police department $35,250.
Public works department $39,065.
Additional construction expenses $70,000.
Total cost $267,651.

Option II remodeling and
reconstruction
The public works and city hall buildings could be
included in a remodeling and reconstruction scheme,
said Anita Fletcher.
"The city hall structure would provide little benefit
because of its small size in relation to the requested
design needs, and its non-conforming elevation would
offer little cost savings to the overall construction," she
noted. "Due to the numerous shortcomings, this would
be the least desirable option and does not warrant thor-
ough evaluation."
The police facility was completely eliminated as a
usable building because of the major problem listed
previously, she said.
Adding the police facility to city hall would cost
almost as much as constructing a new building, said
Fletcher.

Option III Construction of a
new city complex
"A single complex housing all three departments
would provide the inter-agency and governmental re-
lations desired by city employees and the public,"
Anita Fletcher told council. "The building is designed
to be economical in construction and maintenance."

G/ *
_____________________________\' /______________________________________


The building would have a main entrance with a
common lobby and men's and women's restrooms.
The city hall area would be to the left of the coun-
cil chambers. It would include offices for the mayor,
city clerk, deputy clerk, council and city treasurer,
conference room, break room, work room, storage
room and reception area.
The public works area would be to the right of the
council chambers. It would include a small lobby, of-
fices for the director, assistant director and clerk, a
conference room and storage rooms.
The police department would be two stories, with
the lower level behind and wrapping around public
works. The lower level would include detectives' of-
fices, an interview room with one-way glass, a bunker
room, a squad room, a property and evidence room,
storage, rest rooms with lockers and showers, a breath
testing room and a rear door.
The second floor of the police department would be
the public area with a small lobby, rest rooms, offices for
two police clerks, the chief, the assistant chief and the code
enforcement officer, conference rooms, a records room,
a central dispatch center and an equipment room.
City hall and the police department would triple in
space and public works would double. The current total
square footage of the three buildings is 3,000 and the
square footage of the new building would be 12,000.
"As we get into the final work up of any one of these
schemes obviously things can be squeezed or reduced,"
Fletcher said. "One area you might want to reduce is the
council chamber. The plans show seating for 100 people,
and it could be reduced to 60 to 75 people."
Project costs are as follows:
Site work, which includes demolishing present
city buildings and modifying the parking lot -
$104,816.


Construction $951,191.
Additional construction expenses $141,100
Total -,$1,197,107.

Master plan
Beginning at the boat ramp area at the north end of
the property and coming south would be a small park
and gazebo, then the tennis courts, parking lot and the
baseball field. The baseball field would require minor
modifications to meet current regulations. These in-
clude relocating the batting cage and bleachers.
Fletcher suggested restricting playing to daytime hours
to keep neighbors happy.
At the south end of the field would be an open air
performing arts shell with basketball courts in front.
Temporary seating for the shell could be set up on the
basketball court. Fletcher suggested restricting use of
the shell and courts to daytime hours also.
"A shell as opposed to an open band stand projects
the sound out into one direction," Anita Fletcher noted.
"It would serve many functions such as performances
by the Island community orchestra and chorus, other
musicians, theater groups, awards presentations and
other civic or cultural programs.
"I know someone who is willing to help you get the
performing arts shell with no cost to the city," added
Fletcher.
Other aspects of the plan include a covered parking
area for city vehicles in the area now occupied by the re-
cycling dumpsters, landscaping and a flagpole and foun-
tain outside the front entrance to the city complex.

where they have more negative aspects than positive,"
said Anita Fletcher.
In addition to replacing roof systems and air con-
ditioning, the lighting
and work spaces in all
buildings are poor, and 'My feeing
storage is inadequate.
None of the buildings iS band-aids

federal flood regulations,

alarm systems. Luke Courtney
Would Option I ac-
count for the city's pro-
jected needs? asked Council Chairman Luke Courtney.
No, said Fletcher, it would only bring the buildings into
ADA compliance and keep the buildings from leaking.
"Then it's really a band-aid fix for a quarter of a
:million dollars," Courtney observed.
Courtney asked how long the new building would
:meet the city's needs. Fletcher said because the city
will experience no major growth, the building should
:require little expansion. Any expansion could be into
the area of the shuffleboard courts.
Courtney asked if the construction project could be
,cut from $1.2 million to $800,000, and Fletcher said
that could be done by eliminating space.
"It may be better to spend the money to get the long-
term benefits," said Public Works Director John
Femrnandez.
"It's the opportune time for the city to take advan-
.tage of the infrastructure funds," added Courtney. "My
feeling is band-aids fall off."
"These buildings are over 20 years old, and the city
has spent virtually no money on them," noted Police
Chief Jay Romine. "If we spend a million dollars that
are not ad valorem tax dollars, that's a pretty good in-
vestment over 40 years.
Fletcher said the new city complex would take a
year to construct. The city hall and public works build-
ings could be used during construction, but the police
building would have to be demolished.
Council will discuss the two options at its Dec. 12
work session.

Gulf Boulevard petitioners

head back to City Hall


A group of Anna Maria city residents opposed to
new no-parking rules and a block's length of split-rail
fence on the city-owned Gulf Boulevard have re-
quested a spot on the agenda of the city commission
work session at 7:30 p.m. Tuesday, Dec. 12, reports
Ellen Trudelle.
Trudelle and others have been collecting signatures
to undo the commission's unanimous decision to
eliminate parking at the popular beach access, a move


that included the fence as part of what Mayor Dorothy
McChesney has called "a new park-like environment."
The petitioners told the commission Nov. 14 that
they'd be back when they had 400 signatures.
Many residents have complained specifically about
the elimination of handicap-parking slots on Gulf Bou-
levard. Two handicap spaces have recently been cre-
ated on the south side of Palm Avenue where Gulf
Boulevard winds around going east.


Qualifying opens for Feb. 13

Anna Maria election


Qualifying packets for Anna Maria residents
desiring to run for mayor or three out of four city
commission seats on Election Day Feb. 13 are
available from City Clerk Peg Nelson at City Hall,
10005 Gulf Drive, 778-0781.
Mayor Dorothy McChesney and commission-
ers Doug Wolfe and Max Znika have announced
that they will run for re-election. Vice Mayor
Chuck Shumard remains undecided about what
position, if any, he will seek. Commissioner
George McKay has one year left in his term.
The mayor's term is for two years at a salary of

Ducking out?
Should government in Anna Maria close down
until after the February election?
It could be that's the case if last week's decision-
making or non-decision-making process is any in-
dication.
Commissioners spent hours discussing a relatively
minor expenditure to inform the citizens of how the
beach system works and the potential impacts of a
beach renourishment program.
No one could agree on much of anything until three
commissioners finally reached a consensus on spend-
ing $2,500 for creation and printing of a "beach
primer" and another $1,000 for mail distribution.
With four of the five commissioners seeking either
higher office or re-election in February, it seems no one
is willing to make decisions until after the election in
order not to alienate potential voters.
Thankfully, elections and budgeting fall during
different times of the year the budget process begin-
ning far ahead of the "ducking."
Commissioners are elected to serve and represent the
people. To make decisions. If they're so unsure of their
constituency that they can't do their job, perhaps they
should consider a volunteerism over running for office.

Artistic squabble
We've got the Art League and the Privateers duel-
ing over a date for their events next year.
Seems the Privateers went to Holmes Beach City
Hall and reserved the city lot for March 9 and 10 for
their annual flea market They got permits and paid the
fees. Those dates coincide with the Art League's plans
for their spring art festival.
We understand the Privateers, when alerted to the date
conflict, contacted Art League members and said they'd
like to get with them to see if the problem could be re-
solved. The Art League, it seems, holds their show on the
same weekend every year to accommodate artisans busy
spring schedules but failed to book the dates with city hall.
It also seems Holmes Beach City Hall was aware
of the pending conflict and alerted no one.
Then, as one of the Art League members passed a
letter requesting input on the situation to artists at last
week's festival, he began decrying the Privateers for
"stealing their dates and their vendors ... upstaging
their charitable efforts" and "ruining their festival."
Can't the members of these two fine charitable orga-
nizations get together and work out their differences?
We're willing to mediate if they're willing to talk.
The community support of both the Art League and
the Privateers is too valuable to allow the loss of funding
for either event.

Little one thanks league
for Secret Shop
I would like to thank the Anna Maria Island Art
League for recently sponsoring the Secret Shop again
this year.
I have been going to the Secret Shop to do my holi-
day shopping on my own every year since I was four
years old. (That was the first year they had it.)
I've enjoyed every year immensely. I know a lot of
people must work very hard to make the Secret Shop
happen. I hope they know how much the kids on this
Island enjoy the change to shop there. Thank you.

Parade complaint is
anti-American
This is a response to Bradenton Beach resident
Pam Nadon's letter to the editor of Nov. 16 entitled
"Whose dumb idea was the parade, anyway?"
If you are an American and have any education
at all, you should have known that it was Veteran's
Day weekend.
The parade was to honor our veterans who made it
possible for you to show your disrespect and stupidity
by writing such a letter.
If you had read your newspaper or watched TV, you
would have known about the parade. It was announced in
all of the media newspapers, TV and radio.

Condo cut to beach
is trespassing
What makes the residents of Holmes Beach think
they are above the law when it come to trespassing on
other people's property?
I live in a condo year around and pay taxes just like
they do, but I don't walk through their yard everyday.
There are plenty of public accesses to our beach, almost
every block. Is it a hardship for these people who are
walking or jogging to use a beach access instead of
cutting through our complex?
I fail to understand why they have to cut through


my front yard to get to the beach. We have No Tres-
passing signs posted. Can't they read?

Art exhibitor questions
1996 show date
Congratulations to the Anna Maria Art League for
another outstanding show.
Not only is this the main fundraiser for the league, it
is a boost to the entire Anna Maria Island community. The
exhibiting artists and show folks alike must eat in our res-
taurants, sleep in our motels and shop in our stores. The
show is good for all of us culturally and financially.
Many artists from all over the U.S. must plan a year
in advance in order to participate in better shows. We art-
ists know the league's Fine Arts Festivals are held the first
weekend in December and the second weekend in March.
We also know the Winter Park Art Show is the third week-
end in March and so on. These dates have been published
in art publications a year in advance.
We are shocked that the league's March show date
must be changed. Why? I have been told the Anna
Maria Privateers have been given priority on the March
date to sponsor a flea market.
Is this more beneficial to the community as a
whole? Does the flea market enhance the cultural level
of the community? Why is this particular date so im-
portant to the Privateers? The next weekend would be
available to them? Or have their dates been published
in the flea market journals?
Betty Grant, Fine Arts Festival Exhibitor
Editor's Note: The Privateers reserved dates for
their flea market prior to any knowledge of the Art
League's event. Please see Editorial, this page.
Artists Guild thanks the
community's newspaper
On behalf of the entire Artists Guild, I would sin-
cerely like to thank all of you at The Islander Bystander
for helping to make the 6th Annual Heritage Days such
a great success again this year.
We appreciate your interest and dedication in com-
munity affairs.

THOSE WERE THE iYS
Part 12, Turn-of-the-Century Anna Maria
by June Alder


S"- s



Lush, green Passage Key as it appeared in 1914.


BIRDMAN OF

PASSAGE KEY


It's not much to see today, but Pas-
sage Key just a hop, skip and jump
from the northern end of Anna Maria
Island once was a sizable isle with an
interesting history.
For ages mariners stopped at Pas-
sage Key to take on water from the
freshwater lake hidden within a ring of
towering black mangroves. Indians
camped there, and it was the site of
Spanish fishing "ranchos" as far back as
the 16th century. During the Seminole
Wars of the 1830s several hundred refu-
gees from Indian attacks fled to the is-
land. But, ironically, the U.S. Navy de-
stroyed the camp in 1840 because of
suspicions that some refugees were In-
dian sympathizers.
In this century Passage Key gained
some notoriety when our first "conser-
vation" president, Teddy Roosevelt,
designated it as a national migratory
bird refuge.
Picked for the job of warden was
Palma Sola boat-builder Asa N. ("Uncle
Asa") Pillsbury Jr., who had recently
married a widow with two children.
Cora, like her new husband, was a fa-
natic bird watcher, so they were both
delighted with the appointment.
Asa moved his family into a shack
he built on Passage Key and for a while
life was idyllic. His duties were to pro-
tect the birds from molestation by tour-
ists and other predators and to take an-
nual bird counts of the nesting birds for
the National Audubon Society in New
York City. Cora usually prepared the
reports to the society.
The 1907 report revealed that Asa


Teddy Roosevelt refused to shoot a
chained bear and gave his name to
perhaps the most popular toy of all
time.


had protected "approximately 1,600
Laughing Gulls, 1,500 Black Skim-
mers, 130 Great Blue Herons, 8 Snowy
Herons, 3,700 Louisiana Herons, 450
Little Blue Herons, 8 Green Herons
and 8 Wilson Plovers."
In 1910 Cora noted that "four
Great White Heron have brought the
list of species at Passage Key up to 102.
We are in hopes they will nest here and
so get a colony started." But she also
wrote that the island was washing away
into the sea at a rapid rate, recently los-
ing "50 feet on both the bay and gulf
sides."
Perhaps because of the erosion
problem, the Pillsburys moved to Fort
Dade on Egmont Key, later returning to
Palma Sola where Asa grew hybrid
mango trees on a 20-acre farm.
Asa continued as bird warden of
Passage Key until October 1921, when
a catastrophe altered everything. The
most savage hurricane in the recorded
history of Tampa Bay crossed Anna
Maria Island and plunged on 30 miles
up the bay to devastate the cities of
Tampa and St. Petersburg.
The Pillsburys were staying on
Mullet Key at the time in the aban-
doned house of Fort DeSoto's former
commandant. From there they watched
as the rushing waters sliced off the
northern tip of Anna Maria and obliter-
ated Passage Key.
After the storm Asa took his fam-
ily back to his farm, but Cora was never
the same again. She became a recluse
interested only in birding expeditions.
Teen-aged Carlos and Elinor, whose
passions were reading and poetry, also
shied away from people. Until both fell
in love with "summer guests" a
brother and sister.
The story goes that shortly after her
love affair ended, Elinor died of a bro-
ken heart. Her mother died next, of
pneumonia. Then Carlos, also unlucky
in love.
The remains of the tragic trio, it's
said, were buried in the old potter's
field cemetery on Egmont Key.
Lonely Uncle Asa lived on at his
homestead between an Indian mound
and the waters of Tampa Bay (with his
dogs for company but no electricity or
plumbing) until his death on Jan. 9,
1969.

Why does it cost so

much to fix my VCR?


Because many service shops
don't repair they replace. It
doesn't require much training, or
skill, and it generates lots of money;
after all, it's easier to replace the
entire circuit board than to locate
the faulty part. At Bob's you won't
pay $200 for an entire board when
a $3.50 transistor is bad. You might
pay $50 to locate the little bugger
but that's still better than $200!
We've got, or we can get, diagrams
on just about everything ever made
and we have test equipment that
can't be stumped. If it's electric and
it doesn't work, we'll find the
problem, we'll fix it, and we'll

By Jack Gurney
Special to the Islander
Good ideas don't go away. One in
particular a regional dredging au-
thority is resurfacing at the West
Coast Inland Navigation District's
headquarters office in Venice after
gathering dust for more than five years.
"The idea was initially treated with
disdain by the state, probably because it
made too much sense," Chuck
Listowski, the navigation district's ex-
ecutive director, said. "Now, maybe it
will be seen in a different light."
Dredging is necessary to clear sand
from coastal inlets so boats can safely
navigate to and from the Gulf of
Mexico. The sand is spread on the
area's eroded beaches.
Last summer's tropical storms
scrubbed sand off the shores Anna
Maria, Bradenton Beach, Holmes
Beach, Lido Beach and Longboat Key.
Most of it has collected in offshore
shoals and inlets such as Big Pass, New
Pass and Longboat Pass.
The challenge for county and mu-
nicipal governments is to coax the U.S.
Army Corps of Engineers to dredge the
inlets, which are federally designated to
remain open for navigational purposes,
and place the sand on beaches or
spend taxpayers' money for beach
renourishment projects.
Permits for inlet dredging projects
both complicate the planning process
and raise the cost. Expensive inlet man-
agement studies are often required as a
prerequisite to the issuance of dredging
permits. The process can overwhelm
local governments not familiar with or
staffed to handle the myriad forms.
The inland navigation district is
currently charged with keeping the
Intracoastal Waterway safe for boat
traffic in Manatee, Sarasota, Charlotte
and Lee counties. It supervises dredg-
ing projects.
Some local, state and federal offi-
cials believe the district's duties should
be expanded to include the coordination
of inlet dredging and beach
renourishment projects.
Bradenton Beach Mayor Katie
Pierola, a Florida Shore and Beach
Preservation Association director, said,
"The inland navigation district is the
proper agency to coordinate the dredg-
ing of federal and non-federal channels
in this area."
Pierola has spent hundreds of hours
lobbying for Island renourishment
projects. "Having one local sponsor
would take the politics out of projects
for the Army Corps and Florida Depart-
ment of Environmental Protection," she
said. "It makes good sense."
The inland navigation district lev-
ies an ad valorem tax on residents of the
counties to finances its operations. Four
county commissioners, one from each
county, meet monthly and authorize
projects for Listowski to administer.
One of the district's authority
members, Sarasota County Commis-
sioner Jack O'Neil, is enthusiastic
about resurrecting a regional dredging
proposal which was studied by the in-
land navigation district five years ago.
"A modest dredging district makes
economic sense," he said. "It could gain
the cooperation of permitting agencies,
coordinate projects, clear sand from the


inlets and put it back on our beaches."
There are approximately 16 federal
and non-federal inlets on navigation
charts in the four counties, some open to
boaters and others closed by sand
washed from area beaches. They in-
clude:
Longboat Pass, New Pass, Big Pass,
Midnight Pass, Venice Jetties Inlet,
Stump Pass, Little Gasparilla Pass,
Gasparilla Pass, Boca Grande Pass,
Captiva Pass, Redfish Pass, Matanzas
Pass, Big Carlos Pass, Big Hickory Pass,
Wiggins Pass and Clam Pass.
O'Neil is amassing statewide tour-
ism data which support the importance
of routine beach and inlet maintenance.
He said a one percent loss of tourist dol-
lars represents 7,250 job layoffs and a
$126 million annual drop in revenue.
"We need enough sand on our
beaches for tourists to lay down on, and
seven feet of bottom clearance in our
inlets so sailboats can safely navigate
them," he said. "Then we'll have happy
tourists and happy boaters."
Six years ago, when area beaches
were badly eroded and several inlets
were clogged, then-Florida Sen. Bob
Johnson of Sarasota proposed a dredg-
ing authority under the auspices of the
inland navigation district.
A $20,000 study was conducted to
determine whether such an undertaking
was feasible. It was shot down by state
officials as not being cost-effective.
"The counties were all interested in
putting some money in the pot, buying
or leasing dredging equipment and pay-
ing for crews," Johnson said recently.
"A series of meetings were held, then
somehow they stopped."
Unresolved cost factors and a dis-
agreement with state environmental of-
ficials over who would direct the pro-
gram caused it to be prematurely
shelved.
"Jim Armstrong, the inland naviga-
tion district's former director, wanted
absolute control over the program,"
Lonnie Ryder, a long-time permitting
official with state's Division of Beaches
and Coastal Systems, said. "It would not
have been workable."
But Ryder, who for years has
worked with local governments to re-
solve their shoreline problems, said, "It
makes a lot of sense to have one spon-
sor, such as the inland navigation dis-
trict, coordinate the inlet management
(dredging) projects."
He went so far as to recommend
Listowksi, who succeeded the retired
Armstrong, as the logical administrator
of such a program. Ryder said Listowski
has a good historical knowledge of the
area's coastal inlets and works well with
permitting authorities.
Another supporter of a regional
dredging authority is the Army Corps of
Engineers' Chief of Construction Op-
erations, Jerry DiChiara, who has man-
aged federal inlet dredging projects
from his Jacksonville office for more
than 30 years.
"I'm not an attorney, but if a group
of coastal counties could legally tie to-
gether as one sponsor it would simplify
matters," he said. "There are significant
cost savings to be realized if several
projects federal and non-federal -

can be done under one contract."
The Corps typically contracts with
private dredging companies to clear sand
from inlets which have been designated as
either critical to the nation's defense or
essential to commercial activities.
Longboat Pass in Manatee County
is periodically dredged by the Corps
because of its importance to the Cortez
area's commercial fishing fleets and the
U.S. Coast Guard station in Cortez,
while New Pass in Sarasota County is
still dredged because it remains on a list
of previously qualified inlets.
New Pass received federal authori-
zation in 1960 under a set of rules which
no longer exist. It would not qualify for
federal dredging under current Army
Corps rules because there is no longer
enough commercial activity conducted
through it.

Federal officials have warned the
project to clear New Pass and divide the
sand between Lido Beach and
Longboat Key could be the last con-
ducted by the Corps because of cost-
cutting measures before Congress.
DiChiara said local communities
should begin planning for the federal
cutbacks and coordinate their non-fed-
eral small inlet projects with the Corps'
projects so they can be done under one
all-inclusive contract.
"The cost of mobilizing dredging
equipment at only one site is signifi-
cant," he said. "If a contractor does a
federal project for the Corps and then
moves only a short distance to do sev-
eral non-federal projects, a local spon-
sor could save a lot of money."

The Island Poet
Of all the signs and sounds of Christmas there is one we know so well,
It's the Salvation Army lassie on the comer with her kettle and her bell.
Who graciously thanks you for your quarters and your dimes,
To buy a Christmas dinner for those who have fallen on hard times.
But why do folks out shopping or just out for a fling,
Go breezing by her kettle and never drop a thing.
It may be they don't stop to think how bleak this world would be,
If there were no dinner this Christmas or a present by the tree.

Islander Reporter
The first week of hearings on Florida Power and
Light's Orimulsion conversion project produced a
few surprises including a deal between FPL and
Hillsborough and Pinellas Counties and Manatee
County Commissioner Joe McClash's comments
against the project.
The hearings are the current step in the permitting
process for the use of the controversial new fuel at
FPL's Parrish plant. The fuel is a mixture of bitumen
from Venezuela, water and an emulsifying agent.
Of no surprise was the many residents from
Manatee and surrounding counties who spoke against
the project during the public participation portion of
the hearings.
The burning of Orimulsion will result in emis-
sions of high levels of nitrogen oxide (NOx), detrac-
tors say, and the company is not using the best avail-
able technology to reduce those emissions. In addi-
tion, they maintain that Orimalsion would be very
difficult to clean up if spilled in the Bay or Gulf be-
cause it disperses in water rather than floating to the
top and forming a slick as does oil.
The hearings opened Tuesday with opponents
picketing the civic center. Inside, FPL representatives
said use of the fuel will give the company the com-
petitive edge it needs in the market place. Cost sav-
ings would then be passed on to customers.
On the same day, representatives of Pinellas and
Hillsborough Counties announced an agreement with
FPL in which they would drop their objections to the
project In return, FPL promised to reduce the amount
of NOx emissions, especially during the summer. If
emissions exceed the agreed amount during the sum-
mer period, FPL will pay $200 per day per ton into a
trust fund to be controlled by the two counties along
with Manatee County.
On the second day of hearings, FPL representa-
tives detailed safety precautions it will take in using
the fuel. That day's surprise was testimony from a
DEP engineer that the use of selective catalytic con-
verters to reduce NOx emissions is feasible. SCR has
been hailed as the potentially most-effective process
to control NOx emissions.
The company plans to use low NOx burners in
combination with reburn technology to reduce the
emissions. It has maintained the SCR technology is
far too expensive and creates both technical problems
and environmental risks.
The third day of testimony concerned FPL's plans
for cleaning up a possible spill of the fuel in Tampa
Bay. The day concluded with public participation in


The Anna Maria Island Chamber of Commerce
board of directors has selected two Chamber members

Based on the recommendation of outgoing presi-
dent Don Howard, Phil's Texaco full-service station

The board of directors of the Anna Maria Island
Community Center has announced the election of two
new members, Phyllis Elfenbein and Ed Oliveira.
Elfenbein has 30 years of professional experience
in the production and administration sides of the arts
and education. She served as a founding member of
the National Arts and Education Council.
Oliveira is a real estate agent with Wagner Realty.
He is a former member of the board of United Way
of Manatee County and a former United Way cam-
paign chairman.
Current Community Center board officers in-
clude Gerald J. Bowes, chairman; J. Allen Bobo, vice
chairman; Yvonne Shook, treasurer; and Linda
Loken, secretary.
Island city representatives include Luke

which opponents aired their fears about the fuel.
On Friday morning, Commissioner McClash, the
lone commissioner to speak against the fuel, appeared
on behalf of his constituents who have no vote on the
project. He asked the hearing officer to require the
company to limit NOx emissions to current levels,
transport by-products by rail rather than truck and do
further research on cleaning up a spill.
In the afternoon, FPL representatives detailed
emissions control measures to be taken with the fuel.
The hearings, being administered by state hearing
officer Lawrence Johnson, are expected to last two
more weeks. This week, FPL will conclude its presen-
tation and the Florida Department of Environmental
Protection and Manatee County will present their con-
ditions of approval.
The following week groups opposing the project,
such as Manasota 88 and Save Our Bays, will make
presentations. This will be followed by a rebuttal by
FPL officials and a rebuttal by the opposing groups.
The hearings will conclude on Dec. 19.
After the hearings conclude, Johnson will make a rec-
ommendation to the governor and cabinet, who will make
the final decision on whether the fuel may be used.

Avoid Christmas crunch,
mail early say postmasters
The U. S. Postal Service is geared up for another
busy holiday mailing season ready for Americans to
send an estimated 20 billion pieces of mail through post
offices nationwide.
The Island's post offices expect to handle their fair
share and offer some advice.
"To ensure that all mail flows smoothly during this
high-volume period, it's important that as many people
as possible mail early. Mail early in the season and mail
early in the day," said Bradenton Beach Postmaster
Bob Willis. He also wants to inform the Island commu-
nity that the Palma Sola Branch Post Office has ex-
tended its hours until 5 p.m., six days a week, and will
be open on Sunday, Dec. 17, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
Anna Maria Postmaster Ron Smith recommends
the use of new self-adhesive stamps.
"The high mail volume might make some people
thirsty thinking about licking all those stamps," said
Smith. "That won't be a worry this year because we are
selling several different varieties of self-adhesive holi-
day stamps. All people have to do is peel and stick and
the mail is on its way."
Recognizing that for many customers last-minute
shopping is as much a part of the holiday experience as
visiting friends and family, the Postal Service also of-
fers services that can get packages to their destinations
in short order.
Priority Mail will get a package across country in
about two or three days. For guaranteed overnight de-
livery, check with the post office about Express Mail

Gallery director promotes artwork, self-images


By Cynthia Finn
Islander Reporter
Thanksgiving Eve 1995 was clear and mild, a per-
fect night for another first on Anna Maria a Holiday
Gallery Night Tour the first of several planned
events produced jointly by the Island's various visual-
arts groups.
My final stop on the six-gallery tour was at the
Artists Guild Gallery in the Island Shopping Center in
Holmes Beach. It was there that the tour seed had been
planted in an all-Island-artists forum a few short
months ago.
A bright and enticing establishment by day, the
Guild Gallery by night was equally captivating. And
then there was the personal warm and enthusiastic
welcome from gallery director Zo6 Von Averkamp, a
prime activator of both the forum and the evening tour.
For many of my first months working at The Is-
lander Bystander I thought Zo6 must be a paid full-
time director. She seemed always to be there, was con-
stantly providing news and photos of a steady stream
of Guild functions, and it didn't let up even in the so-
called dead of summer. Turns out she's all volunteer.
As I pulled away from the gallery after the tour, a
gentleman tapped on my window. He'd been standing
with Island watercolorist Jean Carlson whose exquis-
ite Island scenes have captured much deserved atten-
tion thanks to Zod's persistence and encouragement
"Excuse me," he said, "but I wondered if you'd
ever considered doing a story about Zo6. She's taken
so many artists under her wing and they've really
thrived with her help. She's instilled so much self-con-
fidence in all of them."
A few days later I had the privilege of spending
some time with Zo6 at her home "the haven" she
shares with her husband of 37 years, Jerry, her high
school sweetheart.
With instrumental piano Christmas music in the
background was it Sandy Owen, Zod? we sat in
her sunny living room surrounded by her 30-year col-
lection of pre-Columbian pottery from Mexico and the
Yucatan, some of her own Beach Bones artforms, some
of her more recent pieces collage and sculpting -
and a large assortment of free-form and hung works by
other artists.

been in their Holmes Beach haven for about a year. The
'60s waterfront ranch has been entirely remodeled -
architectural design by Zo6.
She describes Guild president and architect Art
Ballman's first visit to her home. "He went through the
whole house, thumb and index finger pressed against
his chin, eyes measuring every detail. And then he told
me as my heart was missing beats 'It's perfect.'
I felt so complete inside."
The words of a woman whose inner child didn't
always feel complete, who didn't always know encour-
agement.
By her own telling, Zo6 comes from a dysfunc-
tional Wisconsin family that stifled creative explora-
tion.
"I was born left-handed and was literally called a
cripple," she says without bitterness. "I grew up think-
ing my creativity and any art I wanted to do or try to
do was not worthwhile. That's why I connect so deeply
with the children's programs the Guild is involved in."
As a young adult, Zod says her creativity came out
in two ways: she surrounded herself with others' art-
works and she secretly studied every era of art that she
could by getting her hands onevery art book she could.
Until she moved to the Island five years ago, she
spent her adult life as a collector, never a creator.
Collecting was her spare-time love but it also was
creating and it was her work. For 10 years Zo6 ran a
successful antique business, Heritage House Antiques,
in the lake town of Delafield, Wis. In an historic town
she took over an historic home and displayed her items
for sale in room groupings, detail by detail.
For another 10 years she created 500 items per year
as the head of the design department for a major
giftware importer. The pace was hectic she lived in
the Orient half the year and traveled around the globe
six times per year. The Island became a haven from that
pace.

Island inspiration
While Zo6 gained a lot of self-confidence from her
career, she still shied away from actually creating a
piece of art. The Island walks on the beach, the
water, the way the wind sings through the Australian
pines changed all that.

At the same time the creative arousal inspired her "
to join the Artists Guild, first as a member and shortly
thereafter as an active volunteer. She and the former
gallery director, the late Tassa Vejrostek, hit it off as
kindred spirits from the first meeting.
Zod became Tassa's assistant; later as Tassa's
fatal illness progressed- her arms and legs. And then,
after Tassa's death in November 1994, her successor.

But the ecstasy remains and she takes it as a per-

"It's as dough I'm selling my own first piece over

Grab your grinch and get to Players' 'Greetings'


By Cynthia Finn
Islander Reporter
Director Phyllis Elfenbein's Northeast know-how
is knocking holiday socks off down at the Island Play-
ers Theater this week.
So cash in any other plans for a Christmas Eve
ticket to the Gorskis in Pittsburgh. The wise men will
get there before all the lights have gone out.
Tom Dudzick's comedy with a universal message,
"Greetings," is hot in the hands of our 47-year-old lo-
cal theater company. The plot builds its own crescendo
in ways this reviewer hesitates to give away.
Emily and Phil Gorski are a suffering-behind-
closed-doors, middle-class Catholic couple. They and
their mentally challenged second son, Mickey, await
the holiday return of their 30-something New Yorker
and number-one son, Andy. On Andy's arm to meet the
family is his Jewish fiancee, Randi "with an i" Stein,
a self-proclaimed aetheist.
Trust the playwright with his fix on omniscient
one-liners and the character-perfect five-member
cast: more will be revealed.

'Priceless' in Pittsburgh
Before Act I was midway through, my companion
whispered to me that Gabe Simches as the Gorski pa-
triarch was "priceless." The opening night audience
agreed.
A Players persona since his retirement to the Island
in 1988, Simches really sinks his teeth and his heart
- into this Phil Gorski.
You want to shake him, you want to love him -
just like the real Northeast dad I knew and he de-
serves both. Simches delivers in this role as both the
lion and the lamb. He's as human as every boy from the
Depression turned stinkoo" retiree you know.
Since the author wants us "to see [our] lives with
a fresh pair of eyes," Simches as "Hurricane Phil" is a
stunning viewpoint.
And that's not to say that this is a one-man act. Jo
Kendall as wife and mother Emily is ever convincing
as the saint with her own one-liner mouth.
Kendall has also become a Players regular and her
casting in "Greetings" is to a tee. Her efforts to bustle

everything and everyone into a happy holiday home en-
vironment can make you and Phil see red. But all
is rectified with the sincerity of her plea, "I want my
fella back."


Kendall and Simches together make going home
for Christmas as real as a Coke Classic.

'The host' isn't home
David B. Haynes in the role of Mickey and the
Holy Man is sensational. His character states, "It's only
the growth that matters," and this character does grow.
Haynes' in-character rapport with each of the other
four cast members is captivating. His grasp of his own
characters makes you hope Haynes' second Island
Players appearance means he's found a home here on
the local stage that he loves. This guy is good.
Andy and Randi aka Sandi Simpson and Diane
Kearney are also second-time Players returnees. In
Scene I they buckle up and buckle down to some well-
learned well-timed dialogue.
The cute-couple convincing carries charismatically
right on through Andy's frustrated cry "I don't care
what you believe in, Randi. I'd just like to know you
believe in something." and then some.
This pair each does a fine job as the adult child
straining for a future still tied to an unresolved past.
Their on-stage resolution is good food for the New
Year's soul.
To all five actors and director/pro Elfenbein, thank
you. Your "Greetings" in a word is famous.
To set designer John Flannery goes equal praise.
The Gorski Pittsburgh parlor all dressed up for Christ-
mas truly endorses the old lyrics, "there's no place like
home for the holidays."
Lighting designer Steve Henderson and costume
designer Don Bailey do their excellent part in taking us
out of this world and right into the action on stage. To
stage manager Anne Fasulo and her assistants Dolores
Harrell and Joe Vona, congratulations for another suc-
cessful production.
"Greetings" will run at the Players Theater, Gulf
Drive at Pine Avenue, Anna Maria, through Sunday,
Dec. 10. Tickets are $10 per person from the box of-
fice, 778-5755. Curtain times are at 8 p.m., except for
the 2 p.m. Sunday final performance.
Next up for the players will be director Geoff
Todd's staging of the Edward Albee stinger, "Who's
Afraid of Virginia Woolf." Personally, I can't wait.

19th Century author makes
Christmas debut on Island
"A Christmas Carol," as presented by Charles
Dickens, marvelously impersonated by George Curry,
will be presented by the Roser Men's Club for three
performances only.
Charles Dickens, while a newspaper reporter,
wrote stories of London life and books like "Pickwick
Papers" which made him rich and famous. After he
decided to give stage performances of scenes from his
books, he become "the most famous one-man show of
the 19th century.'
George Curry now follows with his own version of
"the Dickens Show." Curry's unique interpretation will
be accompanied by a holiday choral performance by
the Ramblin' Rosers conducted by Cliff Burgeson.
A $5 donation is requested. Proceeds will be used
by the club to be distributed to various charitable
projects. Performances begin at 8 p.m. on Friday and
Saturday, Dec. 8 and 9, and at 3 p.m. on Sunday, Dec.
10. They will be held the Roser Memorial Community
Church Chapel, 512 Pine Ave., Anna Maria City.
Tickets will be available at the door.

New attitude
Ideas have to come from someplace. Readers of
Stir-it-up know mine sometimes come from 60 Min-
utes. I find stories and commentary on CBS's top news
program often provokes thought or stirs the imagina-
tion.
It often leads to retrospect on similar circum-
stances.
The image-makers last week focused on the trend
in sports to bad behavior. Although they didn't make
mention of Andre Agassi, he certainly came to my
mind.
John McEnroe may have been the bad boy of ten-
nis once upon a time, but Aggasi made a career of
breaking rules. He wore colorful attire where once only
whites were considered acceptable. His clothing style
- denim and then stretch pants under baggies broke
tennis tradition.
These are not bad things until you look at the big
picture. McEnroe argued aggressively for his point, but
Aggasi flaunted earrings, streaked hair and irreverence.
At the Duke and Duchess of York!
Columnist Bob Green of the Chicago Tribune
pointed to the end zone antics of Deion Sanders as the


prime example of the dissing (disrespect -if you're
not hip to today's slang) and violence in sports today.
According to 60 Minutes, Sanders' unsportsman-
like behavior is being emulated by nearly every pee-
wee football player in the country. They showed small
kids practicing hockey by practicing fights.
Announcers celebrate the confrontations and re-
play, replay, replay the violent outbreaks at baseball,
basketball, football and all the other televised sports.
Can coaches of youth games overcome this effect
on six-year-olds and instill values of sportsmanship,
pride and teamwork? Or do kids want the flash, dream-
ing of the ensuing endorsements and their own com-
mercial exhibition of bad boy behavior?
Years ago, I recall Wimbledon umpire and tennis
professional Hal Fennerty conducting classes at the
"youth center." Fellow parent Lois Bowers was in one
of his classes while I was involved with helping
Fennerty conduct local tournaments.
Lois told me with astonishment that Fennerty had
admonished her for wearing pink on the court at the
center.
Good heavens! We were all shocked. No one had
required such regime at the center. Fennerty's kids
weren't treated any differently. They were taught all
aspects of the "gentleman's sport."
I'll bet Lois hasn't forgotten her tennis lesson and
I certainly recall that discipline when I see Agassi flail-
ing at the ball, hair flying and black Nikes pounding the
court.

Youth coaches have a tough job ahead. What can
we do better for Island youth?
We can look for and encourage coaches of integ-
rity. Mentors with family values, old-fashioned morals
and knowledge of sports wanted. Please apply at the
Anna Maria Island Community Center.
Kids here need you.

Speaking of teamwork
We are appalled to learn of a fracas brewing be-
tween the Anna Maria Art League and the Anna Maria
Privateers.
Both non-profit organizations contribute greatly to
our Island community and particularly to youth pro-
grams.
They're currently headed into a battle of sorts over
use of the Holmes Beach field in March.
The Privateers went through proper channels at
Holmes Beach City Hall in scheduling three winter
"thieves markets," and sought the necessary permits in
September.
A Privateer member read an October announce-
ment in this newspaper that the Art League was seek-
ing entrants for their March 9 and 10, 1995, art festi-
val at the same location and date as one of their
thieves markets.

An Art League member was notified within the
week of the pending conflict and nothing happened
until this past week.
According to Bren Jackson, a member of the Art
League's Festival Committee, their past-president,
Trudy Moon, played phone tag with Privateer President
John Swagger to no avail. Newly elected Art League
President Susan Thomas cosigned a letter that was dis-
tributed to artists at last weekend's festival.
ThM letter requested input from the artists offering
the following options: Cancel the show until the fol-
lowing year; change the date; move the show to Anna
Maria Elementary School.
According to Jackson, nearly everyone said,
"Don't change the location, don't change the date. It's
an annual event."
Four artisans said share the field, two said a date
change is bad because Longboat Key is the next week-
end, six said cancel the show, five said hold the show
Sunday only and 30 said change the date but not the
location, but work it out for the same location and date.
Jackson said,. "I understand we made the mistake
by not reserving the field. Several of last year's orga-
nizers left and no one picked up [the responsibility]
after them."
She also said that when she called Holmes Beach
City Hall about the problem she was greeted with the

remark, "We've been expecting your call." Jackson
said, "They obviously knew it was our planned date. It
doesn't seem to me they were willing to work together
either."
Obviously, city hall might have headed off the
current problems if they had taken the opportunity to
inform the Privateers of the Art League's annual event
- and given the Art League the opportunity of refusal
on the critical date since it had been announced in the
newspaper previously.
Now we understand Mayor Rich Bohnenberger is
willing to sit down and talk to the organizers of both
events in the hopes of working out a compromise.
We're willing to do that as well. The invitation is
extended for the "parties that be" to meet and mediate.
With all the phone calling between various members of
both organizations, it doesn't appear any two people
have talked to the same two people but dozens of
people have become involved.
Communication is the game and a win-win situa-
tion for both the League and the Privateers is the goal.
Let's play "Compromise."

Out in a field
The Holmes Beach field, a grass-strip landing for
planes called the "airport" until the early '70s, has in-
creased in use and popularity lately.
One option for renovation of city hall includes a

band shell on the property an idea we have lobbied
for in the past. The Anna Maria Rotary Club is behind
the idea, waiting in the wings to fundraise for the
project.
We can't wait for summer concerts, winter con-
certs or any type of concert in the park.
But it's a park a field without a name. With all
the notoriety lent by the rift between the Privateers and Art
League, it surely deserves a designation of its own.
We have a few suggestions but we'd like to hear
yours too. Holmes Beach Green is a suggestion from
columnist June Alder. My personal favorite is Plane
Park. Maybe we could solicit some relic resembling the
Navy bomber that landed there to film the movie, "On
An Island With You," in 1947 starring Esther Williams
and Peter Lawford. It could occupy some comer of the
field where kids could enjoy climbing in, around and
over it and vacationers would find the perfect photo
spot for a remembrance of Island history something
to complement Anna Maria's jail.
I can see the signs now: "Scenic Photo Park
Here." Followed by another sign with all the "no-
noes." No golf. No glass bottles. No alcohol. No loud
music. No name park.
In that case, would we name the field Photo Park?
Write your suggestions to Stir-it-up, The Islander

Island's bird

rescue station
The Pelican Man's bird rescue drop-off on
Pine Avenue was inadvertently omitted
from last week's Holiday Wish Book insert
in this newspaper.
The sub-station of Sarasota's Pelican Man Bird
Sanctuary is located adjacent to the Historical Mu-
seum in the City of Anna Maria. It is operated by
dedicated Island volunteers who assist in rescuing
injured wildlife birds, as well as accepting injured
birds found by residents. At the sub-station the birds
are stabilized and then transported to the Sarasota
facility for further care, if needed.
Island volunteers also care and feed the Island's
two permanent disabled birds kept at the sub-sta-
tion Foxy the duck and Kit Kat the peacock.
The volunteers of the Island sub-station are
asking the community for donations of materials
and supplies.
The sub-station needs a heavy duty garbage can
with a snap lock top; medical items gauze pads
and wrap, Neosporin/ cotton swabs; Pedialtye, sa-
line solution; Betadine Scrub or Provadine swabs
and a pair of scissors; wire cutters and needle-nose
cutters to remove fish hooks; flashlight and batter-
ies, and a small wooden table for the work area.
New volunteers are welcome.
Contact Shirley Boyett at 778-0340 to donate
items or to make a donation.

A fishing education we can afford


By Bob Ardren
Outdoor Perspectives
Do you know of any good $10 fishing rods or $20
reels? Neither do I.
The first thing most of us do when we take up fish-
ing is to go out and spend some money. We ask around,
talk to friends who are already fishers and look at what
they have, browse around local sporting goods stores
and then we spend some money.
Depending upon our tastes, what we intend to catch
and the condition of our wallets, it can be quite a lot of
money. So then we're ready to go fishing.
But where and how?
Short of hiring a professional guide to show you
around local waters (which is an excellent idea if you
can afford it), what sounds like a good $35 fishing edu-
cation is coming up in Bradenton. It's called the Na-
tional Saltwater Sportfishing Seminar.
Set for Saturday, Jan. 13, at Manatee Community

Local guides such as Rick Gross of Bradenton and
Ed Hurst of Sarasota will join Mark Sosin host of
Mark Sosin's Saltwater Journal on ESPN and a half-
dozen other accomplished fishers at the Bradenton
edition of the eight-stop national tour. Each tour stop
is specifically focused on catching fish in that particu-
lar area.
The format for the seminar is a series of short
courses, 30 to 45 minutes long, presented by three ex-
perts in a particular area of fishing.
For example, some of the courses slated for the
Bradenton event include: trolling for snook, East Coast
techniques that tear up West Coast snook, live bait and
artificial for snook, taking redfish on ultra-light and
artificial (fly included), targeting trophy redfish, gear-
ing up for trophy trout, taking trout on topwater lures,
trolling for trout, no-nonsense tarpon tactics, tarpon on
the beach and in the passes.
You get the idea. There are also courses scheduled
on king mackerel, grouper, snapper and gamefish such
as dolphin, wahoo, tuna and billfish.
There'll even be a short course entitled "How to
cross and fish the Bahamas in a small boat." That alone
could worth the price of admission.
One last point. Each course is designed to start at
a truly beginning level and progress to advanced tech-
niques. That way, everybody gets something worth-
while out of the sessions and beginners probably get
the most.
The $35 ticket fee gets you admission to the semi-
nar running from 9 a.m. until 4 p.m., a copy of the text-
book "Salt Water Sportfishing Techniques," a one-year
subscription to "Salt Water Sportsman" magazine and
a chance at a bunch of door prizes including an all-ex-
pense-paid fishing trip for two to the Bahamas.
Tickets can be purchased by phone with Visa or
MasterCard by dialing toll-free 1-800-448-7360, or
sending a check to Outdoor Associates, 9930 N.W.
59th Court, Parkland, FL 33076.

In addition to Salt Water Sportsman magazine, the
event is being co-sponsored by all the usual biggies in

Come to think of it, the best of all worlds would be
to take in the seminar and then hire that local guide a
few times. But who can have the best of all worlds?

New rules
The governor and cabinet last week approved some
important new fishing rules due to take effect Jan. 1.
They cover trout, redfish, flounder, sheepshead, Afri-
can pompano and tripletail. Bay shrimpers will also be
forbidden to drag their trawls on the seagrass flats af-
ter Jan. 1.
Minimum size for seatrout goes up to 15 inches
with a maximum of 20 inches. Recreational fishers will
be able to keep one sea trout over 20 inches per day,
and the entire fishery for sea trout will be closed dur-
ing November and December.
Daily bag limit for sea trout below the Pinellas-
Pasco county line will be five spotted sea trout per per-
son per day beginning Jan. 1.
The closed season of March, April and May for
redfish has been removed. (Reds are certainly a clas-
sic case of how a managed fishery can succeed even
after being heavily hit.)
Other new finfish rules set size limits and daily
possession limits for flounder (12-inch minimum/10
fish daily bag limit), sheepshead (12/10), African pom-
pano (24/2 per vessel) and tripletail (15/2).
The daily bag limit for red snapper was increased
from 2 to 5.
One last note: don't confuse the African pompano
with our more common Florida pompano.
See you next week.

Amberjack, grouper offshore; reds backwater best bet


By Capt Mike Heistand
Grouper fishing is still excellent offshore, with the
big ones still closer than normal to shore. Amberjack
angling is good offshore, too, with some tipping the
scales at almost 70 pounds. Backwater fishing features
lots of redfish and some small snook.
Kevin at the Rod and Reel Pier said fishing for
pier anglers has been slow, with just a few drums, a
couple of jacks, some flounder and a few reds.
Dave at the Anna Maria City Pier said they've
been catching snook all this week on bally-hoo, a
couple of redfish and some sheepshead.
Toni at Miss Cortez Fishing Fleet said the four-
hour trip averaged 100 head of Key West grunts and a
couple of black grouper. The six-hour trip averaged
125 head of mangrove snapper, Key West grunts, por-
gies, red and black grouper. The nine-hour trip aver-
aged 30 head of mangrove snapper and a couple of
black grouper. The one 12-hour trip averaged 45 head


of red and black grouper and some mangrove snapper.
One of the black grouper on the long trip weighed 20
pounds; another tipped the scales at better than 40
pounds.
Capt Zack on the Dee Jay II said he's finding fish-
ing to be a mixed bag with just about every species
being boated except tarpon. The turn of warmer
weather after Thanksgiving has got some reds and
snook moving back into the shallow water near canals
and channels. Trout fishing is also good, he added.
Andrea at the Bradenton Beach Fishing Pier said
anglers there have been catching a few mangrove snap-
per and some big redfish.
Capt. Phil Shields said grouper fishing is excellent
right now with both red and black grouper being
caught. He's also bringing back an occasional kingfish
and a few mangrove snapper.
Capt. Rick Gross said he's been catching a few
mackerel from the beaches and snook and redfish from


the back bay areas.
Capt. Mark Bradow said he's been bringing back
some reds and trout off the flats and snook near the
canals and docks.
Mark at Captains Marina said he's heard of some
big reds being caught in Bimini Bay and big trout be-
ing caught on the seagrass flats near the Manatee River.
On my boat Magic we've caught several reds this
week in the backwater. Gulf fishing is producing some
amberjack in the 70-pound range.
Capt. Tom Chaya said reds, snook and trout were
his best catches of the week, with redfish far and away
the best bet.
Bill at Island Discount Tackle said redfish are
being caught off the beaches. Sheepshead reports are
getting better every day near the docks and pilings.
Snook are still being taken from the bays, and offshore
grouper fishing is about at its peak right now.
Good luck and good fishing.


Mixed bag
George Reuso and his party brought back a full spectrum of offshore fish while
fishing with Capt. Joe Webb on the "Old Florida" black grouper, triggerfish,
mackerel and bonito.


Snook and redfish oh, my!
Dave Bovard caught this 31-inch snook and the 22-inch redfish while fishing in
his skiff on the flats near the Anna Maria Island Bridge.

EMBER
by BILL LOWMAN
Does this sound familiar? ...
You know there are fish around but the changing
weather patterns keep rolling in and keep you
from getting to your favorite spots. And if you can't fish for
your favorite quarry, you're not sure what else is out there.
Well, the answer is ... plenty. December is a time for
changes in our area; weather, water temperature and fish-
ing. You can catch a lot of fish if you are willing to adapt.
For instance:
SHEEPSHEAD are starting to make a big showing.
The water temperature has dropped dramatically in the
last few weeks and the bandit fish have turned on. Look
for them around any structure, such as bridges, docks, piers
and rocky bottom areas will be good places to start your
search. Sand fleas, small crabs and tube worms are prob-
ably your best baits. However they will take shrimp and
pieces of clam. Try 12 to 15 pound test line on your reel
with a 24 inch piece of 30 pound test leader. Gear the size
of your hook to the size of your bait. For instance: a size 2
hook is a good size when using sand fleas or small shrimp,
but is a little big for fiddler crabs. Try a size 4 with small
crabs. Also, use a rod with a stiff tip. You'll need to set the
hook into the sheepshead's boney mouth.
SNOOK are still in season through December 15. Now
is the time to start working places like the Manatee River.
The Green Bridge area should be prime. Look to flats ar-
eas that have deeper drop-offs nearby. Don't hesitate to use
a large shrimp on a 3/8 ounce jighead. Start looking in the
marinas and canals.
FLOUNDER fishing really picks up now. Areas with a
sandy bottom and plenty of tidal flow are active spots. Try
Snead's Cut, Longboat Pass or around the Coquina or One
Mile Reef. Live bait, cut bait or plastic jigs will all entice
strikes. A slow'drift is an effective technique. If anchored,
try to cover as much bottom as possible with your casts.
Don't set your drag too tight. Flounder often make a tre-
mendous last minute surge just when you're ready to land
them.
SEABASS are fun to catch. Look for them in many of
the same places you catch snapper or sheepshead. All the
artificial reefs are likely spots. The Skyway Bridge Reefs
are especially productive. Cut bait or shrimp work great.
Light tackle and size 1 or 1/0 hooks will do.
REDFISH will start to slide into deeper water on the
cooler days. As the tide goes out, look for channels or drops
near the flats where you've been finding reds for the last
couple of months. Big boats, docked at mouths of canals


FISHING


Remember ... snook season will be open until Decem-
ber 15. The season then re-opens on February 1.

and marinas make great cover for reds. If fishing near
boats, docks or marinas, you better use a little heavier
tackle than usual.
GOODJLUCK. Cobia, tripletail, trout, grouper and
triggerfish are also fair game right now. If you're
having any trouble catching any of these fish, check
with us at Island Discount Tackle, we'll try to help.

JA SILSTAR TIP:
When it conies to
sheer angling
power, it's tough to
find a rod that can
match the strength
t of the Silstar
Power Tip.
.y- The Power Tip
is built to take
anything the biggest, toughest fish
can dish out. This rod's strength
comes from the way Silstar constructs
the blank in two layers. The inside
layer is a high density graphite com-
posite core. This adds sensitivity. The
outside layer is a sheath of longitu-
dinal glass fibers that surround the
graphite core. This adds strength. The
two layersjoin near the tip to become
a solid piece. This sensitive. virtually
unbreakable tip gives this rod amaz-
ing fighting and lifting power
This Power Tip really earns its
name. Here's a rod tip thatjust won't
break.
