Fire commission approves COLA raises


By Pat Copeland
Islander Reporter
Trying to catch up with the cost of living, Anna
Maria Fire Control District Commissioners recently
approved raises of 5 percent for firefighters and 3.5
percent for administrative personnel.
"I asked the chairman to look at this, because I've
seen us getting back into the same situation we were in
before when we postponed and postponed and post-
poned increases in salary," Commissioner John
VanOstenbridge explained. "Then (when we did in-
crease them) they had to be so high to bring them up
to what other districts paid that we had to take the heat


from the public. I don't want that to happen again."
He originally suggested a 3.5 increase across the
board, or $18 per month, said Commissioner Marty
Duytschaver, who was appointed to study the issue.
However, now he feels 5 percent, or $23.94 per month,
would be fairer.
"It doesn't amount to a lot," he said. "And we're
not getting anywhere as far as bringing our group up to
the county average. This is just a stop-gap thing."
Commissioner Sandy Haas said she thought per-
sonnel received raises through the step plan.
"The step plan just provides a method for the em-
ployee to move up the pay scale," noted Chief Andy

Do you know where your city is?


By Cynthia Finn
Islander Reporter
The city of Anna Maria was divided up into lots by
U.S. government surveyors in the 1840s, City Attorney
Jim Dye told the city commission Dec. 19.
Needless to say, there has been some waterfront
fluctuation since then and current information is "con-
flicting" about the precise location of the city limits,
particularly in the Gulffront and bayfront areas, and
most specifically in the Bimini Bay area.
That area south of Galati Marine in Anna
Maria and north of the Key Royale section of
Holmes Beach separates the two Island cities.
Where the exact separation is in the water is
anybody's guess at this point.
Why does it matter and why is the matter coming
up now?
An abandoned boat several months ago created a
stir as to whose jurisdiction the boat was in city,
county state or federal. Who should get rid of it?
Additionally, Anna Maria and Holmes Beach share
the expense of the periodic dredging of Bimini Bay. Is
the traditional 60-40 split fair and realistic?
A realistic professional line will presumably have
to be drawn in order for the city of Anna Maria to ap-
ply for grants to help with its portion of the dredging
cost That dredging is in the 1996 or '97 picture.
As for the rest of the city's waterfront, a total re-
surveying could cost the city $10,000 to $15,000, said
Phil Charnock, director of public works.
Surveyor Leo Mills will be asked to attend an up-
coming city commission meeting to discuss the cost
and feasibility of surveying the whole city or, more


likely, just the Bimini Bay area.
Dye suggested the city have an aerial photo on
hand to depict where Anna Maria commissioners think
the limit is. Part of Mills' job would involve some hefty
historical research. The city charter and a 1976 letter
about the City Pier from then-Mayor Ernie Cagnina
represent just part of the "conflicting" story.
In order to change what's now listed with the
Florida Bureau of State Lands, the state legislature
would have to pass the amendment in the form of a bill.
Time is of the essence, said Dye. A presentation
of proposed changes including a surveyor's new
legal description would have to be made soon to
local state delegate, Rep. Mark Flanagan, in order
for his office to prepare a bill in time for the 1996
legislative agenda in Tallahassee.
Dye suggested Anna Maria work with Holmes
Beach because the delegate would be reluctant to
take the proposal to Tallahassee unless the two cit-
ies are in agreement.
"Do we need the blessings of Holmes Beach and
Manatee County?" asked Commissioner George McKay.
"It's not a legal requirement but a political require-
ment," responded Dye. He suggested taking the matter
to an Island Elected Officials meeting.
The consensus was to try to survey just the
Bimini Bay area, to get Mills into City Hall as soon
as possible and to initiate discussion with the city of
Holmes Beach.
Based on the assumption that both cities would
seek grant money for the dredging, Mayor Dorothy
McChesney concluded the discussion, "Holmes Beach
needs this and we need this."


Price. "It doesn't provide for COLA and once an em-
ployee reaches the final step there is no increase."
Price said 75 percent of the district's employees
have reached the final step in the plan, and there have
been no salary increases for three years. In a salary
study of local districts, Anna Maria employees were
running 3 to 19 percent behind the other districts in
salaries.
"Why didn't we address this in the budget?" asked
Commissioner Glenn Bliss.
There wasn't any extra money for raises at budget

Mayor Arnold

announces 1996

goals for

Bradenton Beach
By Paul Roat
"I hope 1996 is the most outstanding year in the
city's history," Bradenton Beach Mayor Leroy Arnold
said as he oulined his goals for the year ahead to coun-
cil and staff.
"We have to work together as a team and not be
afraid to offer different views," he said, adding that
council members should maintain an open mind for
both praise and criticism.
Many of his remarks revolved around the city's
budget and his plans to cut property taxes in the city.
"We have to have loyalty to our taxpayers we
don't want to bite the hand that feeds us," Arnold said.
"We have to manage the city like a small business and
provide the best services for less money."
Arnold provided council members with copies of
the 1995-96 $1.356 million city budget and requested
a "homework assignment" of reviewing the document
to identify ways to trim the budget.
"My number one goal is to cut our high millage
rate," Arnold said. The current budget is the second
highest in the city's,history at 2.8034 mills. A mill is
$1 for every $1,000 of assessed value placed on prop-
erty after any homestead exemptions are subtracted.
Arnold said a review of the past 10 years' budgets
indicated the property tax rate has nearly tripled, from
1.0718 mills in 1985 to an all-time high of 2.9149 in 1994.
"The budget has gotten completely out of hand," he said.
"I cannot justify how the city can continue to place
this heavy load on taxpayers," Arnold said. "We need
to follow the example of the mayor of 10 years ago,
Dick Connick, who could control the costs of this city.
He watched every penny."
Other items Arnold said he intended to address in
the coming year include:

THE BEST NEWS ON ANNA MARIA ISLAND

Beach forum


set, mailer


moves forward
By Cynthia Finn
Islander Reporter
In final preparation for a voters' referendum on the
Feb. 13 election ballot, the city of Anna Maria will
sponsor an informational forum on the beach-
renourishment issue at 7:30 p.m. Thursday, Feb. 1, at
City Hall.
The city commission voted 4-to-0 at its Dec. 19
meeting to formalize the wording of the referendum as
follows:
"Do you favor the inclusion of the city of Anna
Maria in the Manatee County Shore Protection Pro-
gram? Vote yes or no."
The forum will be led by Holmes Beach retired
civil engineer John Adams, president of the Anna
Maria chapter of the Florida Shore and Beach Preser-
vation Association (FSBPA).
Confirmed participants include Kate Gooderham,
the regional FSBPA representative, and former
Bradenton Beach Mayor Katie Pierola who is now a
member of the board of directors of the FSBPA.
Adams has also invited Dr. Bob Dean of the Uni-
versity of Florida and Manatee County Environmental
Projects Coordinator Jack Gorzeman who oversees the
county end of the Island beach project.
Dean is former head of the FSBPA and, according
to Adams, is "the top practicing coastal engineer in the
world." Dean and Gorzeman have not yet responded to
the invitation.
Adams was hired by the city commission as a con-
sultant in late November at a fee of $2,500.
After a lengthy and sometimes heated discussion,
Mayor Dorothy McChesney and Commissioners Max
Znika and George McKay voted to retain the vocal
proponent of Anna Maria's joining the federal, state
and county project that renourished the Gulffront
beaches of Holmes Beach and Bradenton Beach.
Vice Mayor Chuck Shumard and Commissioner
Doug Wolfe opposed his hiring and objected to spend-
ing city tax dollars to persuade the voters one way or
another on the beach-project issue.
However, both also said that if the referendum
comes out in favor of trying to get in on the remainder
of the 50-year project they would vote in favor of the
resolution the city will need to send the county to re-
quest inclusion in the Island project.
The final decision on Anna Maria's inclusion rests
with the state and the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers
who foot the majority of the multimillion-dollar bill for
the beach restoration. The county pays the rest and the
city is not required to pay anything.

'Tainting the effort'

time, but because the district will not hire the four
firefighters approved in the budget until January,
the money is available, Price explained.
"I thought that was the money we used to hire
the part-timers for Station 2 (during the Cortez
Bridge closing)," said Commissioner Sandy Haas.
Some of the salary money was used but
$30,000 came from the $66,000 carry-over from the
previous budget, said VanOstenbridge.
"This was not the plan when the budget was
made," VanOstenbridge said. "It's my fault that
we didn't look into a salary increase but when we
find we've made a mistake, we can correct it.
That's what I'm asking you to do."
The board voted unanimously for the increase.
"I would like a committee formed to look
into a COLA increase employees can count on
every year so we don't have to go through this
every three years," said Duytschaver.
Bliss agreed but noted, "I think it needs to be
addressed every year.
"I don't want to see something automatically
built in the budget so the board can't make a deci-
sion."


forum, Adams' fee includes the writing of an educational
mailer that will be printed and sent to some 1,400 city
households at additional cost to the city of about $1,000.
Adams wrote such a mailer for the county when the
Manatee County Commission had to make its decision
regarding the Island project.
Adams contacted Anna Maria commissioners in
late October with his $2,500 proposal. He told them
that unless they educate the voters, the referendum will
be voted down.
Adams dropped off his proposed Anna Maria
mailer at City Hall Dec. 12, the same day that a
Bradenton daily newspaper ran a stem editorial chas-
tising the city commission for using taxpayer money to
influence the referendum via that mailer.
In a cover letter attached to his "beach primer,"
Adams referred to that editorial.
He said it would be a shame to lose the beach pro-
tection "and our best leaders because a sufficient num-
ber of voters perceived that the use of public funds to
inform them was wrong. Therefore, even though the

The mayor and each commissioner were given a
copy of the draft on Dec. 12. All five were asked for
comments and suggested changes. Only McChesney
has commented. City Clerk Peg Nelson has also sug-
gested some different word choices.
Phil Charnock, the city's director of public works,
was not asked for his input.
Further discussion of Adams' proposal was origi-
nally scheduled for the Dec. 12 agenda, but the mayor
eliminated the item on the 12th after the editorial in the

The item also was not discussed on the 19th.
Wolfe, who has expressed reservations about the legal-
ity of the mailer, was out of town.

Garbage pickup

schedule to change

Jan. 15 in

Bradenton Beach
The days garbage is collected in Bradenton Beach
will change starting Jan. 15, 1996.
Public Works Director Buddy Watts said yard
waste pickup will change from Saturday to Monday
collections. The regular Monday-Thursday garbage
collection will change to Tuesday-Friday. The Tues-
day-Friday garbage collection days will change to
Wednesday-Saturday.
Watts said the change will allow people to trim
their trees and cut their grass on weekends and have the
yard waste collected Monday. Previously, people who
did yard work on the weekends would often leave yard
trash on the curb for a week before the next scheduled
collection.
Watts added that officials with the Florida Depart-
ment of Environmental Protection have banned fluores-
cent and high-intensity light bulbs containing mercury
from the county landfill effective Jan. 1. Residents
should place any such light bulbs in a separate con-
tainer for collection, Watts said.

Shumard to challenge McChesney for mayor's seat


By Cynthia Finn
Islander Reporter
Anna Maria Vice Mayor Chuck Shumard will
challenge Mayor Dorothy McChesney for her seat in
the city's Feb. 13 elections.
Shumard has been weighing the decision for sev-
eral weeks, going back and forth between running for
mayor or running for re-election as a commissioner.
Time ran out and he was forced to choose.
Candidate qualifying for the mayor's position and
three out of four commission seats ended Tuesday,
Dec. 26.
"I don't think anyone should run unopposed,"
Shumard told The Islander Bystander Dec. 22. "I've
had a lot of people urge me to give the mayor's race a
shot. I'm going to work hard and I think we can win
this thing."
Shumard is at the end of his first two-year term as
a commissioner. McChesney was elevated from her
commission seat in December 1994 to replace the late
Mayor Ray Simches. She defeated Commissioner Max
Znika for the remaining one year of the mayor's post
last February.


Effective with the upcoming election, the mayor's
salary will be $800 per month.
Candidates who have turned in papers for the open
commission seats include incumbents Doug Wolfe and
Max Znika, Planning and Zoning Board Chairman
Tom Turner (who ran unsuccessfully in 1993) and city-
politics newcomers Robert McElheny and Elaine
Burkly.
The top two vote-getters in the commission race
will earn two-year terms at a salary of $400 per month.
The third man or woman in gets a one-year term. Com-
missioner George McKay is the only current official
whose seat is not up for grabs.
McElheny, general manager for Abraham
Chevrolet in Tampa, has been a consistent audience
member at city commission meetings since becoming
a resident three years ago.
Burkly, a full-time resident for one-and-a-half
years, is a 30-year music performer and educator, in-
cluding background as a public-school administrator.
Election books for those who wish to register to
vote will close on Jan. 16. Registration is available at
Anna Maria City Hall, 10005 Gulf Drive, 778-0781, or

FENCE FEUD FESTERS


Gulf Boulevard fences still not mended


By Cynthia Finn
Islander Reporter
The Anna Maria City Commission got an update
on the Gulf Boulevard situation at its Dec. 19 meeting.
To quote Mayor Dorothy McChesney during the
20-minute discussion, the issues surrounding the popu-
lar one-block Gulffront street are "still in limbo."
Vice Mayor Chuck Shumard, whose duties include
acting as liaison on city public works matters, was
named to sit in on subsequent meetings of an ad hoc
citizens committee.
That committee was formed after a stormy Dec. 12
commission meeting and charged with coming up with
a proposed compromise for the controversial new no-
parking regulations and the installation of a streetside
split-rail fence.
The commission voted unanimously in late sum-
mer to eliminate all parking on the street and to put up
the fence as protection for the dune system that Gulf
Boulevard residents and neighbors say "out-of-towners
have trampled." The end result was hoped to be a park-
like environment for walkers and bikers to enjoy.
However, a group of Anna Maria residents stepped
forward to protest the actions and presented the com-
mission with a petition on Dec. 12 signed by "over 400
people" who wish to return parking to
the beach access.

and the ability to drive up and watch the sunset from

Manatee County Sheriffs Deputy Jules Dengler, who
sat in on the Dec. 15 gathering, has since told the mayor
that the deputies will not ticket cars "standing" passen-
gers intact for a view of the sun going down.
Two residents challenged the makeup of the citi-

had "tried hard" to assure its representa-
Public tion by both sides of the fence.

report on tion by City Clerk Peg Nelson of the

was Boulevard is now.
r one- Commissioner George McKay, who
tours of does not want the fence to be re-
moved, suggested the city consider
installing parking spaces on the east
side of the street, in between the drive-
ways of the four homes that face the beach.
McChesney said, "I can't see that. If we allow it
there then they'll park on the west side, too."
Charnock said the homeowners were opposed to
the east-side parking and said it's "not feasible" with
their driveways.
Harry Boothe owner of one of the Gulf Boule-


vard homes who initiated the no-parking plea last sum-
mer presented the commission with his typed report
of the Dec. 15 meeting.
His report concludes: "They said their 300-plus
voters would not compromise. They wanted it all
ripped out. The 1,300 other voters wonder what they
want. It seems the vocal minority must be pleased at all
costs. Don't forget the petition that killed our getting
a new P.O. The meeting was adjourned without accom-
plishing anything."
After Shumard said he'd "be happy to" sit in on the
next committee meetingss, McKay urged the commission
not to bring the matter up again until Shumard said so.
City Attorney Jim Dye, on hand for other matters,
reminded the commission that "this sounds like a semi-
official committee" and that all meeting dates set, ac-
tions and discussions "should be in the sunshine."
Among those serving on the committee are
Harry and Dee Boothe, James DePorre, Margaret
Jenkins, Fritzie Barber, Liz Evans, Ellen Trudelle,
Allen Gilchrist, Jack Jolly, Elaine Burkly and
Carolyn Pepka.


... Holmes Beach residents seek council help


By Pat Copeland
Islander Reporter
Carla and Alexander Kuizon sought help from the
Holmes Beach City Council recently after being told
they could not have a six-foot fence because they have
three front yards.
"In our code in a residential district wherever you
have a street, you have a front yard," explained Public
Works Supervisor John Fernandez. "Our fence code
says no six-foot fences are allowed in the front yard
area. The Kuizons have a triangular piece of property
with three fronts. There are 12 to 14 pieces of property
in the city with a similar situation."
According to Carla Kuizon, she called the city's


Newspaper recycling dumpsters have been
temporarily removed but are expected to return in
mid- to late-January at Gloria Dei Lutheran
Church at the intersection of Palm and Marina
Drives in Holmes Beach.

cling project benefit All Island Youth and All Is-
land Middlers, as well as the environment.


building department and said her small fence was rot-
ting and she wanted to replace it with a six-foot fence.
She was told to get permission from her neighbors be-
fore doing so.
The couple purchased the fence and nearly com-
pleted installation when they were cited by the build-
ing department for not having a permit. Subsequently,
they were told to remove the fence, which they did.
"We paid over $400 for the fence and it's not re-
turnable," she said. "With the package store being at
the end of the street, a lot of people walk down there
and hang over the fence and speak to our daughter. Half
the time, beer trucks turn through our lot. We just
thought the fence would make it safer."


All Island Youth, grades 9 through 12, and All
Island Middlers, grades 6 through 8, are interde-
nominational organizations sponsored by Roser
Memorial Community Church, St. Bernard Catho-
lic Church and Gloria Dei Lutheran Church. The
group reaches out as an all-island ministry to help
young people face life.
For information on the programs, contact any of
the sponsoring churches.


Fernandez defended his department
"There was no permit applied for and any time
we issue a permit, we ask for drawings and a loca-
tion of where the fence is to be erected so we can
make a determination," he explained. "We don't
give permission over the phone. We only give
people an idea of what they can do. It's standard
policy in our department to say a six-foot fence is
allowed in a rear yard area."
Kuizon said she asked in the phone call if a build-
ing permit was necessary; however, Fernandez said a
permit is not needed for replacement of rotting boards.
Councilwoman Carol Whitmore asked about a
letter to council from Kuizon listing 35 properties in
the city with six-foot fences in their front yards.
The list was turned over to the code enforcement
officer, said Fernandez, but it will take time to do the
research to determine which ones are legal.
"Some may have been done by midnight oil or prior
to 1989 when there may have been a variance for fences,"
he noted. "I have never worked under a variance for
fences. There's no doubt that some of them are illegal."
Council Chairman Luke Courtney asked Council-
man Don Maloney to research the problem and return
with suggestions to resolve the issue.
"If the code enforcement officer finds the fences
are illegal, are we going to make them tear them down
then change the law and allow them to rebuild them?"
Mayor Rich Bohnenberger asked.
Council said it will not take action on any illegal
fences until Maloney completes his task.

Youth after-school

program offered at

Tingley Library
The Anna Maria Island Community Center has
gone south sort of.
An after-school program sponsored by the Center
will take place at the Tingley Memorial Library, ac-
cording to John Sandberg, library board chairman.
Sandberg said Bradenton Beach youths will be able
to work on their homework, use the library's comput-
ers, work on craft projects and play on outdoor recre-
ational equipment at the Beachhouse Restaurant as part
of the agreement with the Center.
Scholarships are available for anyone interested in
the after-school program, Sandberg added, and the
Center is providing insurance for the youths as well as
any cleaning fees that may be required at the library,
located at 111 Second St. N.
"This will give our kids something to do after
school," Sandberg said.
The after-school program in Bradenton Beach has
been something that has been in the discussion stage for
years. Although the Center offers myriad programs for
young and old alike, many Bradenton Beach youths have
a problem getting to the Anna Maria location. Likewise,
working parents have problems getting to and from the
Anna Maria location in a time efficient manner.
For more information about the Tingley after-school
program, call library clerk Carol Sandidge, 778-1208.

The Island Poet
New Year comes around again and you must
spread some cheer,
And you say you'll take it easy and only drink
some beer.
But the drinks are flowing freely by the time the
old year ends,
And you say you couldn't care less because you are
out with friends.
But you know you've had too much when it's time
for you to go,
And feel if you just walk straight your friends will
never know.
But for heavens sake don't drive when you are
carrying such a load,
Or sure as faith you may end up another corpse
along the road.

Reminder for resolve
When we first became a newspaper a little more
than three years ago we waited a few months to embark
on editorials.
Stories evoked opinions from readers and soon the
opinion page developed into a strong voice from our
readers as it continues to do. Luckily for us, letters
to the editor have never been in short supply at The
Islander Bystander.
Nothing brings out opinion more than elections.
The issues come boiling to the surface and sometimes
tempers and criticism with them.
In our season of tri-city elections, December to
March, we expect this course of events.
In Anna Maria, we can predict with confidence that
beach renourishment and the on-and-off-again fence/
parking on Gulf Boulevard will dominate the campaign
leading up to the February election.
In Holmes Beach, the question of spending $1.2
million on a new city complex versus repairs and re-
modeling at a much lesser cost is a prime target for
politicians who risk running in the March election.
Without going into the merits of these topics, we want
to remind a few elected officials of a promise made on
behalf of their constituents the citizens and voters.
When the county school tax was voted on by the
cities, the school board requested the full amount be
returned to them for their infrastructure needs.
The cities each responded they wanted to keep a
share of the one-cent sales tax and earmark the funds
for their own infrastructure.
And so it was passed by the voters.
But as the agreement was reached, each of the Is-
land cities discussed putting a portion of their share
aside to benefit students.
The reasoning then was to use the funds for youth
since it was generated by a school tax. Where has the
reasoning taken us?
Anna Maria promised infrastructure dollars to pro-
vide additional parking space for the Anna Maria Is-
land Community Center, located just a few short blocks
from city hall.
Bradenton Beach promised an off-site location for
the youths in their city to enjoy the Center's recre-
ational, educational and counseling programs. (This is
now becoming a reality at Tingley Memorial Library.)
Holmes Beach agreed in theory to put money into
something benefiting students but was vague on their
intentions no specific promises.
If you can't think of a way to do it in Holmes
Beach, we suggest a full-size soccer field on the empty
field behind city hall. (The Center doesn't have a full-

size field for it's most popular sport.) It won't interfere
with any other activities there.
Turn the rocky softball field into a real playing
field for youth and adult play. Squeeze a T-ball field
(sans outfield) between the fire department and the
existing softball field. Restore the basketball court.
Take a serious look at an Olympic-sized pool.
All these improvements may be done for a fraction
of the cost of a new city hall complex in a city that
barely has room for 5 percent growth in the future.


If the commitment remains, where's the kids' share
of the bucks?
Please make a commitment of your school tax in-
frastructure dollars to the infrastructure of OUR com-
munity center. Don't be selfish with your windfall. Af-
ter all, it came from the taxpayers.
The Center and the kids have waited long enough
for promises to be fulfilled.
We're resolved to keep asking for a better commit-
ment from the cities for our Island youth.

No matter what height,
build a 'safe' bridge
This is neither a letter for nor against the build-
ing of a new bridge to Anna Maria Island. It is about
people speaking in public and representing them-
selves as "experts" on matters which they obviously
do not know much about and expressing their opin-
ions rather than facts.
I refer to your headline article in which Dr. Rob-
ert Sheets stated that height is not a factor in the design
of a bridge, that winds in hurricanes are different than
in winter cold fronts, and "there would be no substan-
tial or even detectable differences in wind speeds be-
tween a high or a low bridge in a hurricane situation."
About three months ago, when asked by a friend
these same questions, I responded by saying that
while I have been involved in the design of numer-
ous high-rise buildings which involve rather com-
plex engineering studies regarding the impact of
high wind velocities, I would defer the question to
Dr. Joseph Colaco, with whom I had worked over
the past 30 years. This I did, and in my conversation
with Dr. Colaco he stated that the design of bridges
was a very specialized field and referred me to Dr.
Isyumov of the University of Western Ontario, who
it turns out designed the Skyway Bridge.
In my conversation with Dr. Isyumov, he stated the
following:
1. In the design of the Skyway Bridge (as this is
true of any bridge elevated above the plane of the wa-
ter), it was found during the wind tunnel test that the
wind speed at the road elevation was some 30 percent


over the wind speed at the level of water (100 mph at
water level; 130 mph at road level). This is because the
wind is blocked by the bridge, even though elevated,
which acts like a dam. He commented that because of
the blockage of the winds it creates updrafts along the
railings of the bridge. He stated that you can observe
the large birds of the area riding these updrafts.
2. Wind tunnel studies on bridges are done only to
study the safety of bridge structure. Unfortunately, they
are not done for the safety of the user's ability to stay
on the road.
3. When constructing any bridge in a high-risk area
such as the area where Anna Maria Island is located,
never do so without a complete study of the wind issues
because of public safety.
I am not for or against a new bridge. If we keep the
existing bridge, let us be sure that anything done to it
is done by qualified people in their fields.
If we build a new bridge, let's do the same thing -
not just have the DOT pull plan #26 out of the drawer
and stick it here in their usual cavalier manner ... and
Dr. Sheets, admittedly a nice guy, should stick to the
weather.

THSE WE TTE AYS
Part 15, Conclusion, Turn-of-the-Century Anna Maria
by June Alder


The Hall children in 1906 just before the family moved to Tampa: Edith, 9;
Bertha, 8; Miriam, 6; Luella, 5; and Clarence, 4. The homestead in the back-
ground, first house on the Island, burned up in 1915.

A PARTING GIFT


For Mary and Wilbur Hall 1906 was
a watershed year. Mary was 29, her hus-
band 42. For eight years they had
struggled to make a go of it on the Anna
Maria Island homestead her late father,
George Emerson Bean, had established
in 1893.
Since the couple had
settled in with their first-
born, one-year-old Edith,
Mary had given birth to five
more offspring.
Bertha was born in Sept.
1, 1898; Miriam on Jan. 22,
1900; andLuella on April 30,
1901. At last, on Dec. 16,
1902, Mary brought forth a WlB
boy, Clarence (who was to Wilbur ant
become an editor of
"Reader's Digest"). He was, of course,
adored by his sisters and his parents.
Another boy was born two years
later. But to the family's great sorrow he
lived only four days. ("He was buried on
the Island the only grave as far as we
know," sister Miriam later recalled. "We
had a little funeral and our neighbors
came. We had a cross put there, but it
washed away.")
It was then that Mary and Wilbur
began to think of moving back to
Tampa, where the couple had met. The
primary reason was for the sake of the
children's education.
The Island school was struggling.
Mazie, eldest child of Sam and Annie
Cobb, had been sent away to school. Her
brother Louis, 13, had begun a seaman's
apprenticeship on the steamers plying
Tampa and Sarasota Bays. (Two years
later he would be quartermaster on the
Gen. J.B. Carr, one of larger steamers
working Tampa Bay and would com-
mand ships in both World Wars.)
That left only three Hall youngsters
and three children of Sam Cobb's
brother Rurick, for no other young fami-
lies had yet located on Anna Maria.
There simply were not enough students
for a proper school.
Other reasons: the past winter had
been severe with several cold spells, fol-
lowed by a six-month drought which
destroyed their summer crops. The
move also would enable the Halls to
once again take up their former roles as
Salvation Army officers and rear their
children in the faith.
So when Mary's brother, Will -
who held a good position in the Tampa
post office system offered Wilbur a


job, he decided to take it.
But before they packed up, a spec-
tacular event occurred. A bad storm
smacked into the island, possibly a hur-
ricane.
The Bradentown Herald described
it:
"Very severe and un-
usual weather prevailed here
on Saturday last. A chilly
northeast wind with a driv-
ing and incessant rain made
it very disagreeable for out-
side traffic. Monday mom-
ing opened with a strong
southeast blow, punctuated
by heavy rain squalls.
Vary Hall "The storm continued
throughout Monday night
and up, to Tuesday morning. Monday
the barometer fell 6/10, the lowest
mark recorded in years.
"It has been reported that a three-
masted schooner, laden with lumber,
became stranded on the bar at the en-
trance to Tampa Bay, but she jettisoned
her cargo and got off. The inhabitants
of Anna Maria Key have saved about
10,000 feet of the lumber and maybe
they will build the hotel of which
they've been talking."
Miriam Hall, then 6 years old, and
now the sole surviving Hall child, re-
membered the incident vividly in an
interview a few years ago:
"We were just getting ready to leave.
There was a big storm. It blew and blew
just awful and I guess there was a high
tide. We had a great, wide beach there
must have been 300 feet out in front. A
schooner had to dump its cargo of lum-
ber, and it all came around our point.
Next morning all I could see was logs,
waves and waves of them. Our shoreline
was just lined with logs, all piled up.
"They were on our property but
daddy just gave the lumber away. Mr.
Whitehead, he had a tomato farm on
School Key (Key Royale of today),
built a two-story house out there. Other
people built houses on down the bay."
The Halls left behind a legacy of
love and neighborliness. And they took
away a fondness for the Island and its
people that made them return, one by
one, later on.

Dream"

Mis'name'er snatches fame
Pop artist Andy Warhol was often quoted for his
adage about everyone being entitled to 15 minutes of
fame. Andy, turn over in your grave. Alas, I feel
cheated and deprived of my fleeting moments of fame.
Let me first state my appreciation for the thanks
and accolades which were recently expressed in the
Opinion Page of The Islander by Darcy Marquis, ex-
ecutive director of the Anna Maria Island Chamber of
Commerce.
Unfortunately, I'm not now or ever have been
named "David." (IRS please take note.) Eons ago my
deceased parents never even considered "David" as
name option of this I am absolutely positive.
(Davids of the world, please forgive me I bear you
no personal animosity.)
My daughter, son and their prospective spouses as
well as my grandchildren are even more mixed-up.
They keep asking, "Who is this David." The little
grandkids, with their inquiring and impressionable
minds, are particularly perplexed. They futilely search
The Inn Between motel and adjacent areas seeking a
different Opa named David.
All Islanders, please assist the young innocents in
their fruitless search for this baffling "David." If you
have any information regarding "David," contact The
Inn Between, Darcy at the chamber, or Bonner
Presswood at The Islander Bystander. No questions
will be asked and your identity will be kept confiden-
tial probably your name will be incorrect so it will
be difficult to really identify you.
As co-owner of The Inn Between, I must confess
my name is Charles and my middle name, seldom if
ever divulged except under duress from nosy govern-
ment officials, is Russell.
In the famous Dale Carnegie courses they teach that
a person's name is his most personal possession. Consid-
ering the many other names I have been called by various
people over the years David is mild. Trust me.
Again, before I forget, thanks again "Karcy
Barquis" for your kind opinion letter.
Charles (Chas or Opa) Haskins, Holmes Beach

One-ways no solution for
dangerous intersection
There is, I believe, another and far more logical
solution to the traffic problem at the intersection of
Gulf and Palm Drives other than the one stated by


Holmes Beach Councilman Luke Courtney, owner of
Haley's Motel located at the intersection, as reported
in The Islander Bystander of Dec. 14.
That solution is to make Gulf Drive between 81st
Street and the intersection one-way going south thereby
forcing northbound traffic on Gulf Drive to turn right
on 81st Street and left on Palm Drive. A barrier should
be erected at 81 st Street in the northbound lane of Gulf
Drive to ensure that all traffic turns right on 81st.
Southbound traffic would continue as is, going ei-
ther right on Gulf Drive or straight through on Palm as
desired. However, the block between the intersection
and 81st Street southbound would be one-way
southbound.
If the speed of southbound traffic presents a prob-
lem for Courtney and his motel guests, that can be
handled by either continuing Anna Maria's 25 mph
speed limit through the intersection or by limiting the
parking at his motel to an area less vulnerable to traf-
fic.
His proposed solution is, in my judgment, worse
than no change at all for it imposes on all citizens the
manifest disadvantages of making one-way streets out
of the city's two principal north-south thoroughfares.
The solution I suggest solves the problem at mini-
mal expense and with minimal disruption of traffic and
driving patterns.
Charles Morgret, Holmes Beach

Orchestra uncovered
Something is awry at your newspaper.
On Sunday, Dec. 17, some 90 local singers and
instrumentalists, four soloists and a very talented pro-
fessional conductor presented an hour-and-a-half ren-
dition of Handel's "Messiah" before an audience of
700 or so in the only free space available to them on the
Island this year, St. Bernard Catholic Church.
In the Dec. 21 edition of your paper four days later
there is no mention of this beautiful moving event.
The 90 participants rehearsed collectively 2,350
hours, two-and-a-half hours every Saturday beginning
in October, plus several weekday sessions of the same
length. That is community participation that just should
not be ignored!
The length of volunteer time was overshadowed by
the beauty of the presentation of the very talented ama-
teur musicians who, in your pages, remain unsung.
How you can ignore such talented participation in your


own small town is a mystery.
Ian A. Morrison, Bradenton
* Editor's Note: We are somewhat wounded by criti-
cism of what The Islander Bystander is not doing. We
find pre-event promotion is of more assistance to our
Island not-for-profit organizations than post-event
coverage, although event coverage is always provided
when possible.
In case Mr. Morrison missed it, Anna Maria Island
Community Orchestra & Chorus: Nov. 18, a photo ses-
sion as requested, of orchestra rehearsal. Nov. 23 is-
sue, page 11, top billing on announcements page of
Dec. 3 fundraiser recital. Nov. 30 issue, page 8, boxed
photo and announcement of Dec. 3 fundraiser recital
plus full coverage and photograph on the back page,
page 8, of our annual Holiday Wish Book. Dec. 7 is-
sue, page 23, photo and announcement of the Dec. 17
"Messiah" concert. Dec. 14 issue, page 12, boxed an-
nouncement of the Dec. 17 "Messiah" concert.
That list includes coverage in four consecutive is-
sues of the newspaper.

Gulf Boulevard parking problem
is perplexing
In reference to the recent letters concerning the
Gulf Boulevard park in Anna Maria City, we would
like to state that we have been so impressed by the
improvements to the parks at the end of Magnolia
Avenue and at the city pier and other examples of
people-oriented projects that we have decided to ac-
quire a home there.
Therefore, the controversy involving the rearrange-
ment of parking at the Gulf Boulevard beach is puz-
zling not only to us, but to others who use that beach
daily.
Without cars directly in the park and with the
added fill, the view is improved and safety is increased
with easy access for pedestrians. Yet, there is ample
parking for several cars along Palm Avenue as well as
a parking lot within one block and a bicycle rack at the
corner of Palm Avenue.
Perhaps a fitness movement will begin to urge resi-
dents of Anna Maria to walk or bike around the Island
rather than using scarce resources and further stressing
both city services and the fragile environment.
In addition, let's use our energies to renourish the
beaches to protect our future on this beautiful Island.

Major code

amendments near

completion
By Cynthia Finn
Islander Reporter
The two-year job of updating and revising the city of
Anna Maria's building and zoning codes to make them
what Planning and Zoning Board Chairman Tom Turner
calls "more user friendly" is nearing completion.
And, if Turner gets his wish, the 300-plus pages of
material will become law by a vote of the city commis-
sion prior to the city's Feb. 13 elections.
Turner told the commission Dec. 19 that he is re-
ally pushing to get the ordinances in for two readings
and passage in January.
Turner expressed concern that four out of five mayor/
commission seats will be open. If the city-official lineup
is drastically changed, potential newcomers might be lost
in the maze of the two-year rewrite, causing a delay.
Included in the updating are city code chapters 5,
9, 25, 29 and Appendix A that will be renamed the
Zoning Ordinance.
Many current inconsistencies and restrictions should
be eliminated, Turner has said. The result will be a code
that will be easier for citizens and contractors to read, that
will eliminate a lot of variance applications that now have
to come before the planning board and the commission
and that will make the city's building official decisions
less open to personal interpretation.
Members of the planning board and the city com-
mission held a day-long work session in November
with City Attorney Jim Dye to read through the docu-
ments page by page for near-final changes.
Dye was on hand for the Dec. 19 commission
meeting to answer questions and give input on the
more-final draft.
When it appeared Turner might take commission-
ers through another lengthy itemization, Vice Mayor
Chuck Shumard and Commissioner George McKay cut
him off, fearing another three-or four-hour meeting like
the one on Dec. 12.
Shumard called for a point of order minutes into

day, Thursday and Saturday. Homebaked early settlers bread is on sale every Wednesday morning. For more

discussion. "This doesn't seem appropriate for this
meeting to go through all this," he said.
"What do you want out of all this tonight?" asked
McKay.
Turner said he had hoped the ordinances would be
up for a first reading that night. Now he was hoping to
have "a clean document" for first reading on Jan. 9,
with final passage Jan. 23.
He and Public Works Director/Building Official
Phil Charnock said they could take care of the minor
items with Dye but there are some items the commis-
sion should discuss.
That initiated a 30-plus-minute discussion on one


item setbacks for bay windows that also involved
audience participation.
The discussion got hot several times including
some ruffled feathers between McKay and Mayor Dor-
othy McChesney (who tried to get McKay to "move on")
and McKay and Charnock. In the end it was still not clear
how the item should be resolved or written into the code,
but Dye was handed the task. Then Turner decided to rest
his case, saying, "The rest of the items for discussion are
minor. There's no need to do it now."
Turner said he, Dye and Charnock will go over the
rest of the changes alone and will prepare the codes for
a first reading at the work session Jan. 9.


Mark Groom

came back three times!


First, Mark called me to his house
to fix his TV. I knew the problem
the minute I saw the picture.
Simple fix, minimum charge. He
was elated. Then Mark brought in
a stereo unit with several
problems. I repaired them all; he
was estatic. On the third visit
Mark, (on the left in photo),
brought in a cassette tape deck
which I promptly repaired. Mark
says that he's been looking for 2
years for an honest repairman and
he thinks I'm a magician because
I was able to repair everything at
such reasonable rates. If it's
electric and it doesn't work, we'll
find the problem, we'll fix it, and
we'll guarantee it we actually
repair things!

Islanders amass toys for tots
Griffith-Cline Funeral Homes in Holmes Beach served as the local arm for the U.S. Marine Corps' annual

Karate club helps kids develop life skills


By Pat Copeland
Islander Reporter
"Instead of learning how to whittle and build camp
fires, we learn martial arts," says Bobby Miller, state
director of the National Youth Karate Club, Inc.
Miller, who began teaching the club's program at
Anna Maria Elementary this fall, stresses that the goal
of the program is to develop self awareness, self disci-
pline and self defense techniques in youth.
The club was founded in Michigan by Rob Torp
and is spreading over the United States and Canada,
according to Miller. The club's co-director is Han Lee,
the U.S. Olympics' tae kwon do coach and a two-time
Olympian.
Miller, a full-time sheriff's deputy, was hired a
year ago by the non-profit club after completing an
extensive application process and is teaching the pro-
gram in Manatee County. He hopes to branch out to
other counties in the future and eventually state-wide.
"This is the first year in the school system," he
explained. "I went to the school board for permission
to put flyers in the schools and made presentation pack-
ets for the principals. With a principal's permission, I
can distribute flyers in the school and use school facili-
ties."
In addition to Anna Maria on Wednesdays Miller
teaches the program at Moody Elementary on Thurs-
days, Palma Sola on Mondays and Bayshore on Tues-

Put your party hats on
Finally, the big weekend is upon us!
Let's start off the new year right. Party hardy.
1996 should be a grand year. We have 366 days to
make it so.
To celebrate Leap Year, one must wear a frog-like
hat and make "Bud-why-sir" sounds at the stroke of
midnight.
Just kidding. But folks have been known to do
some stranger things or so I'm told.
This year is a first in our collective memories for
a professional fireworks display on the Island compli-
ments of the Beach House Restaurant in Bradenton
Beach, owner Ed Chiles and pyrotechnic expert Jim
Taylor.
The entertainment sounds like it's planned non-
stop for the weekend there Queenie and the King
Bees and Tropicats are featured New Year's Eve with
the Trinidudes, R.P.M., Cairo and Tropicats rounding
out the week. The culmination at midnight of a round
of fireworks should top off the year in fine fashion.
V.I.P. tables may be reserved on the deck but the view-
ing from the beach up and down the Island will be free.
Also in Bradenton Beach, you can spend the after-
noon on the deck with the steel drum sounds of Steel
Pan Dan or enjoy a special dinner at the Bridge Ten-
der Inn and champagne at midnight. Over at Key West
Willy's, Clem Drydon has planned a night of Karaoke
- where you and your friends "are the party."
Vienna Castle is serving a special menu for New
Year's Eve and a special pork and sauerkraut on New
Year's Day. The British pub and restaurant, Crown &

ery entree includes a lobster tail. Per couple pricing and

At Down the Hatch on the Palma Sola Causeway
they're offering happy hour all night long in the lounge
for New Year's Eve. A dinner special here also features
lobster.

holding court at Rotten Ralph's all weekend. Ralph's
may be known for his fish and chips but the nachos are
killer and the atmosphere remains outdoor casual. Jay
makes it much fun.
For a little more low-keyed event, Rebecca's Bis-
tro in Bradenton Beach is host to a quiet, romantic New
Year's dinner and classical background music. Eddie
B's in Anna Maria is serving a special menu and Fritzie
will be entertaining at their piano bar.
No Exit will "rock the Casbah" at Turtles Bar &
Grill in Holmes Beach. They open at 8 p.m. on New
Year's Eve and offer free champagne, party favors and
drink specials all evening.
Winter's Ghost will rock out the new year at the
Dry Dock Inn on East Bay Drive. The band appears
Thursday through Sunday and will record their live CD
on Friday night. New Year's Eve the bar has free party
favors, a buffet and midnight toast.
For a little more sophistication, enjoy fine dining
at Harry's on Longboat Key, Tia Lena's in Bradenton
Beach or Chez Andre in Holmes Beach on New Year's
Eve. And Harry's brunch is a treat any day espe-
cially on New Year's Day. Who can top Harry's crab
cakes Benedict?
Last but not least, just in time for New Year's Eve,
Ches's Pasta Plus has begun its winter schedule of live
entertainment featuring Doug Heale every Wednesday
through Sunday evening with dinner.

1995 reviewed for the Island of our choice


By Jim Hanson
Islander Reporter
As years go, 1995 was just fine. We used it up,
is all.
Anna Maria Island did its full share of using, as
usual, alternately roaring and ambling along never
missing a lick. We had all the fun and games and grief
and folly that our record of past years would lead one
to expect.
Here are some of the high spots, with just a few
lows, of a year on the Island of our choice:

JANUARY
Happy Days The year-end, year-beginning time
was a most happy one for Allan Bazzy and "Lucy."
Bazzy won court approval to expand his Bradenton
Beach Marina when a Circuit Court judge ruled the
Bradenton Beach City Council was wrong in denying
him rezoning. "Lucy" was a pesky porcine orphan that
ran loose on the Palma Sola Causeway for weeks, to the
distress of people who feared for the little pig's health
and welfare. Finally Wildlife Rescue enticed her into
a cage and delivered her to a farmer who promised not
to turn her into chops.
Stop the Trolley Longboat Key officials threat-
ened to fine Gary Creamans and put him in jail for run-
ning his trolley from Anna Maria to St. Armands via
Longboat. They said the trolley violates the town sign
ordinance because it carried advertising. Okay for other
places but not the kind of thing they wanted,
Longboaters sniveled.
Overparking- Neighbors of Anna Maria's Rod &
Reel Pier complained that people were using the pier
parking lot for late, loud parties, sometimes until 4 a.m.
Shirley Boyette said pier parkers also walked up the
beach in front of homes there to sunbathe or picnic,
which she says leads to littering. Mayor Max Znika
said half the pier parking lot was city property a
beach access and asked her to get together with pier
management, the sheriffs office and city officials to
monitor the situation.
For SAM Save Anna Maria, organized to fight
a high-rise bridge at Manatee Avenue, got a boost when
Bunny Garst offered to donate $1,000 to the legal fund
if 19 others followed suit SAM hired Sarasota attorney
David Levin for its anti-big battle.
Distinguishable Ray Simches, longtime Island
civic leader and Anna Maria mayor for six years until
resigning for reasons of health, became the sixth per-
son to receive the city's Distinguished Citizen Award.
Peerless Pier The Bradenton Beach Fishing Pier
made its move to be the best around when the City
Council approved first-phase plans for renovation. In
the works for the 20-year-old pier east of Bridge Street
were a clock tower, new pavilion, new lighting, 34 new
benches and 476 rod holders.
Wages of Net Ban A state legislative task force
was conducting 20 public hearings around the state


Turtle deaths plagued volunteers this year.

Dune creation took place in Bradenton Beach last February, the last phase of the beach renourishment
project. The two-story building in the background, Surof, burned in March.


seeking answers on how to compensate 7,000 fisher-
men put out of business by the voters in the November
1994 election. State buy-out of fishing equipment
seemed to be gaining favor among lawmakers.

FEBRUARY
Big Bust On the eve of Superbowl XXIX five
police agencies raided seven bars in Manatee County
and, in Holmes Beach, one business and two homes
that officers said were involved in a sports gambling
ring. Seventeen people were charged on 47 counts in-
cluding racketeering, bookmaking and keeping a house
of gambling in an operation believed to have run to $3
million a year in bets.
T-Docks The city of Holmes Beach extracted
nine T-end canal docks along Marina Drive, reigniting
a controversy that had been simmering for 10 years.
The city said all the docks, and many others in the area,
were on city property and people using them did not
have deeds and did not pay taxes on them. Residents
concerned claimed they were promised dock space in
their deeds, and anyway the use of the docks was
grandfathered into their properties.
More on Bridge Another warrior in the mega-
bridge battle entered the fray, at least tentatively. State
Sen. John McKay said he had started research into the
need to replace the bridge at Manatee Avenue and
would meet with the Florida Secretary of Transporta-
tion to hash it out. Most elected officials on the Island
had been contacted by the senator's office and their
advice to him was a unanimous "No!" to a high fixed
span to replace the drawbridge.
Meanwhile Southerly, Sarasota was far from out
of the woods on its own bridge battle. City commis-
sioners demanded a drawbridge to replace the Ringling
Causeway drawbridge, the Metropolitan Planning Or-
ganization said they were getting a high fixed-span like
it or not, and a citizen referendum was vetoed by the
commission.
New Up There Dottie McChesney was elected
mayor of Anna Maria, the first woman elected to head
the city since 1933. Others elected were Mark Ratliff,
George McKay and Doug Wolfe, commissioners.
On Second Thought On advice of its lawyer, the
Longboat Key Town Commission backed off from its
fight to keep Gary Creamans' Anna Maria to St.
Armands trolley off the key. Their reconsideration
came just after the American Civil Liberties Union
took up Creamens' cause.
On the Beach The final phase of beach
renourishment at Bradenton beach got under way with
dunes formed, salt-tolerant vegetation planted and
wood dune walkovers built at Cortez Beach, Katie
Pierola Park and north of the intersection of Gulf Drive
and Cortez Road.
War Chest Bradenton Beach became the first
Island city to donate $1,000 to Save Anna Maria's le-
gal fund to fight the proposed high fixed-span bridge
the state wants to build to replace the drawbridge at
Manatee Avenue. The city's was the fourth response to
Bunny Garst's $1,000 challenge. Holmes Beach was
still thinking it over, Anna Maria was worried about


using public money for a private battle and ultimately
decided not to pony up.

MARCH
Grantsmanship Holmes Beach lost its bid for a
$500,000 state grant for neighborhood revitalization
when a consulting firm concluded the city didn't have
a qualifying project. Bradenton Beach continued its
efforts to win another $500,000 grant for community
development to mate with the earlier half-million grant
put into Bridge Street revitalization.
Watch Out? The Island Turtle Watch program
was endangered by the state's prohibition against mov-
ing turtle eggs from nests to protected hatcheries. Anna
Maria Island Turtle Watch Director Chuck Shumard
said hatcheries were "the success of our program" and
the state's action could put his group out of the program
entirely.
New Parking A new parking lot for Bradenton
Beach was proposed, a 21-car area on First Street North
which would cost $2,000 to $4,000 to develop.
Elder Statesman Dies Ray Simches, dean of
Anna Maria politics, died of cancer. He was a longtime
civic leader and political activist, mayor for six years
before his death.
They're Back Luke Courtney and Billie Martini
were reelected as well as political newcomer Don
Maloney elected to two-year terms on the Holmes
Beach City Council.
Disturbing- Proliferation of a "baggy pants, hats-
on-sideways crowd" at night on Bridge Street
prompted residents to ask the Bradenton Beach City
Council for more police patrols, more arrests and ear-
lier bar closing hours. "Drunks leave Bridge Street and
walk down the area's residential streets and alleyways
yelling, screaming, talking very loud, singing at the top
of their lungs and breaking bottles and kicking beer
cans," said Lee Myczkowski. Police Chief Jack
Maloney said Bridge Street complaints were about
eight percent of police calls and "the cops spend 20
percent of their time there." Still, they would spend
more time there, he promised.
Anna Maria Tempest Anna Maria's new
mayor, Dottie McChesney, won her feud over author-
ity with the resignation of Bill Zimmerman, public
works director. Retired director Frank Tyndall was
called back to duty on an interim basis.
Apartments Burn A rental complex with three
apartments known as Surof was destroyed by fire at
803 Gulf Drive south in Bradenton Beach. The fire,
which started in an unoccupied unit, did an estimated
$100,000 damage, said firemen.
Piece by Piece Save Anna Maria, Inc., un-
veiled a new fundraising plan to "save our Island and
save our bridge." The organization divided the draw-
bridge at Manatee Avenue into 496 mythical 12 x 12
foot pieces to be sold for $10 each. Proceeds will go
into the legal fund to fight the state's plan to replace
the bridge with a high fixed span. SAM renovation
of the existing bridge.

REVIEW, CONTINUED FROM PAGE 16

New Pastor Roser Memorial Community
Church selected the Rev. Wayne Daniel Kirk as pastor
to succeed the retiring Rev. Frank Hutchinson. Kirk
was chosen from among 107 applications from Califor-
nia to England.

APRIL
Wave Hello The National Weather Service was
trying to figure out what caused a six-foot-high rogue
wave, or series of waves, that struck the Island.
"Whether it was seismic or something else, we're still
evaluating," said the federal agency. No damage was
reported on Anna Maria, but dozens of residents re-
ported the freak incident. Steve Gift's boat was near
Bean Point when "I saw the wave and went to meet it
near Passage Key," he said. "I'm six feet tall and I had
to look up at the wave. I'd guess it was 10 feet high or
more."
Cheapstate The state of Florida was considering
setting a $20,000 limit on the amount any commercial
fisherman would be paid for the loss of his way of life.
Gill netting was banned by the voters in the previous
year's election, and the state was trying to set up a pro-
gram of compensation.
Eco-Ed Center An environmental education and
visitors' center was proposed for Leffis Key. Holmes
Beach Mayor Richard Bohnenberger said the center
would serve schools as an environmental resource, re-
search and study entities and the public with beach
walks, lectures and field trips.
No Shortcuts Massive road projects began on
Longboat Key and Manatee Avenue, and with them
came massive traffic delays. Gulf of Mexico Drive was
to be repaved the full length of Longboat, and four-foot
bicycle lanes added along with more turning lanes.
Manatee Avenue was being widened and resurfaced
and sidewalks added from 81st Street to Manatee
County Public Beach in Holmes Beach.
Up With Taxes The Anna Maria Fire Commis-
sion approved a tax increase, designed to provide more
service including four fulltime firemen for Cortez. The
commission envisions no further increases for three
years, when a new engine may be on the shopping list.
Transition Wagner Realty, established in


Bradenton Beach in 1939 as the first real estate concern
on Anna Maria, was sold to Anna Maria Investments,
Inc., under owner David C. Eckel of Longboat Key. Pat
Thompson of Holmes Beach continued to manage the
office.
Permission Granted The Florida Department of
Environmental Protection drafted the final permit nec-
essary for construction of a high-rise bridge at Mana-
tee Avenue. Save Anna Maria, Inc., announced it
would seek an administrative hearing into the need for
such a bridge.
Turtles, Yes The Island's Turtle Watch program
will continue this year, but without the turtle hatcher-
ies that Islanders have used to save baby turtles and
which the state has outlawed.
Beach a Winner The Anna Maria Island beach
renourishment project (completed in 1993 in Bradenton
Beach and Holmes Beach) won high marks on its first
anniversary. Coastal engineer Rick Spadoni told the
Coalition of Barrier Island Elected Officials: "I can't
think of another beach restoration project that has per-
formed as well as this one."
Red Tide Already Weeks earlier than normal,
red tide was bringing discomfort to people and worse
- to marine life in the waters surrounding the Island.
Red tide is formed by a one-cell organism that absorbs
oxygen in the water and also emits a toxin that causes
respiratory problems.

MAY
Church Grows The Roser Memorial Commu-
nity Church congregation unanimously endorsed build-
ing expansion and renovation plans estimated at
$350,000 to $400,000, with work to begin in the win-
ter. Included in the project were to be a new fellowship
hall seating 350, turning the existing hall into class-
rooms and building a narthax and portico on the west
end of the sanctuary.
Art Doesn't Cut It The Holmes Beach City
Council turned down a piano teacher's request for a
permit to teach in her home, and registered disap-
proval of attempts to accommodate an "artistic" li-
cense. Some councilmen tried for two years to draft
an ordinance that would allow artistic teaching, but
couldn't work it out.
Net Buyout The Florida Legislature approved


a $47 million package to compensate gill netters for
outlawing their livelihood, with $20 million set aside
for purchase of nets, $10 for job retraining and $17
for unemployment compensation for former com-
mercial netters.
Quiet Problems along Bridge Street abated
enough for the City Council and chief of police to drop
plans to add a foot patrolman to the Bradenton Beach
payroll to police the street after dark. Residents had
complained of noise, disturbances and teenage drink-
ing there.
Promises, Promises First there was the shock-
ing price tag more than $400,000 then there were
water main and sewer line breaks and finally a con-
struction problem pushed the completion date of Key
Royale bridge repairs off for at least another month.
Up to Snuff Two "apartment complexes" that
have aroused neighborhood ire for 10 years and
more, at 100 and 105 Fourth St. S., will be brought
up to city codes, remodeled and landscaped as a re-
sult of Bradenton Beach Planning and Zoning Board
action and new ownership. The tenants in the 11
units, formerly owned by the late City Councilman
Terry Whited, were evicted for multiple "life safety
issues."
No-No A charter amendment which would re-
quire a referendum for any density increases, proposed
by the Holmes Beach City Council, would be illegal,
the state attorney general warned the city. He said such
an amendment would be a preemption of a state stat-
ute, a no-no in anybody's state.
941 The telephone area code in these parts
changed from 813 to 941. GTE Florida said it had to
make the change because such uses as computers, fax
machines and pagers were crowding old 813 beyond
capacity.

Just a thought.
If you saw any of the adult indoor soccer action last
week at the Anna Maria Island Community Center
you'd be supporting a full-time league there and a
proper indoor field to play on. It was fast, aggressive,
all-out soccer (more resembling hockey) at its best.
The "dream team" sponsored by Capt. Tom
Chaya's Dolphin Dream Charters, one of two adult
Island teams, took top honors. It's thanks to Scott Dell
and the Center for putting on a great holiday tourna-
ment with four divisions including a division for girls
this year.

Dog days of Xmas
The past three weeks have been disrupted slightly
by a Doberman pinscher. He was a gift from my daugh-
ter to my son for Christmas and early delivery from the
puppy farm necessitated a temporary (secret) home at
my place.
The nameless Christmas present came to the office,
met my friends, and behaved extremely well for his
age. He was a pleasure to have around. A combination
snapping turtle and nurture seeker, he went from 13
pounds at nine weeks of age to 22 pounds three weeks
later. He has a warm, loving nature and I enjoyed my
short-term foster parent status.
Now comes the real challenge. Having passed the
task of temporary dog caregiver with flying colors, my
daughter and friends decided a puppy was the perfect
thing for my Christmas present.
Enter the three-pound Cairn terrier in a Santa gift
bag on Christmas eve.
In case you aren't familiar with the Cairn terrier,
they're teeny-tiny at seven weeks of age. Beady little
black eyes and a button-like black nose lurk under a
layer of black and brindle fuzz that covers the full
eight-inch length of him.
He closely resembles the baby Ewok on Return of

He stands about three inches tall overall. He's so
short-legged you can't much tell if he's sitting or stand-
ing or stretching.
You can tell he's going to be ferocious. After all,
his breed is that of "Toto" in the Wizard of Oz. He
made his stand against the bad witch.
A close friend from Boca Grande had a Cairn
named Lucy and I admired her fortitude. She would
bark and chase at the sky at the mere mention of buz-
zards. She was loyal and independent
Characteristics I admire.
Lucy lived a long 12 years and was put down last
week. I can only hope "Mr. Wizard" will live up to her
reputation. I hope I have the patience to see it through.


One thing's for sure, this dog's gonna have to put
in some long hours at the office. I wonder if he likes
apples MacIntosh (computer) apples. He actually
"tapped" across the keyboard once as I wrote this.
Maybe we could list him in the masthead as copy
boy. The Cairn's Scottish reputation is for tracking and
trapping rats among the cairns, heaps of stones set as
landmarks and monuments.
We'll put him right to work nosing out the hot
news tips on the Island.

came in upset over her lost cat. Seems her 14-year-old
black cat was missing since Dec. 20 and rarely has ever
left home.
She placed a "lost" ad in this newspaper last Fri-
day but called over the weekend to report her "miracle
on Gladiolus Street" when her cat reappeared.
We hope the same is true for a sassy macaw missing
from south Bradenton Beach, belonging to former coun-
cilman Jim Kissick. If you hear something coming from
the treetops or catch a glimpse of gold and blue among the
pine needles, give Jim a call at 778-1154.
By the way, if you find or lose a pet, we run the
ads at no charge in The Islander Bystander. Just stop
in to write it up.

Fishin's been slow
Charter captains and reporting stations in the area may
not have noticed the slowdown. The fish may not have
noticed either. Cold, windy weather has us all stunned.
But over the last few months charter Capt. Mike
Heistand and his wife, Cheryl, have had it rough.
Capt. Mike reports fishing to you every week in
this newspaper and Cheryl has always helped by con-
tacting part of his list on Sunday including the piers and
other reporting stations like Annie's, the Cortez Fleet
and Island Discount Tackle.
Just a couple months ago, Cheryl was very suddenly
diagnosed with multiple sclerosis. Her condition worsened
rapidly and she now gets around in a wheelchair.
New hope for improvement came this past week
when the Heistands attended a local meeting of the MS
Society. The speaker, Dr. Peter Dunn of Tampa, is recog-
nized as a leader in the field of MS. He practices three days
a week and does research three days a week and his inter-
est was piqued by Cheryl's case. Apparently she is the
only Florida native known to Dr. Dunn with the disease
and he said he wanted to look more into it.
Capt. Mike said Dr. Dunn offered some hope for
improvement with drugs and they'll be making a trip
to his office soon.
We hope you'll keep the Heistands in your
thoughts and prayers and if you have some spare time,
we understand Cheryl would appreciate someone to
read to her on occasion.

Resolved: not to spray my lawn ...


By Bob Ardren
Outdoor Perspectives
These days between the holidays are traditionally
a time for reflection and resolutions. It is a time when
days are slightly out of the usual pace of life..
First, some good news and a chance to stretch the
Christmas spirit into the new year.
Mote Marine Laboratory reports that Benny, the
young bottlenose dolphin airlifted here from North
Carolina during October, is doing well. But they also
report he still has a ways to go before he can be re-
leased back into Atlantic Ocean.
"We're please to see progress in that he's been
eating more food, increased his swimming and even
demonstrating limited diving activity," reported Jay
Gorzelany, head of Mote's Marine Mammal Stranding
team. "However," he cautions, "Benny is still being
treated for multiple medical conditions, he remains on
medication and we are facing the long term rehabilita-
tion process."
Even though Benny was brought to Mote by fed-
eral officials, there aren't federal funds available to pay
for his care. That means the feds rely on an extensive
network of volunteers and scientific groups such as
Mote to fill the need of caring for these animals. And
yes, that takes money.
"Although the public has been generous in support-
ing Benny's rehabilitation, it is clear that the laboratory
will need additional assistance," Mote said in a recent
statement.
"For instance, donations to cover the cost of
Benny's medicines are about depleted. If Mote is to be
successful in returning Benny to the waters of the At-
lantic Ocean, it is going to take a strong financial com-
mitment from the community," Gorzeman says.
So if you've got a few coins left from Christmas
that still have a bit of the Christmas spirit in them, call
Mote at 388-4441 and make a pledge.

198 of an estimated 1,800 creatures, has died in 1995. That
means this was the second most devastating year on
record. In 1990 a killing freeze pushed the total to 206.
But there was no big killer freeze this year at
least so far. Sure, speeding boats have claimed their
share of the state's official marine mammal, but even
those boats are not the manatee's biggest problem.
Patti Thompson, a biologist for the Save the Manatee
Club in Maitland, finally came right out and said what
most of us have suspected for a long time. That is, that
we're killing the manatees through development.
"The biggest long-term problem is the loss of habi-
tat with rapid waterfront development," she said.
"Florida's inability to say no to development in the
long run is what is going to wipe out this species."
Allow me to propose a resolution here. During the
next year, and beyond, don't ever pass up a chance to
help save what's left of our natural shorelines and
marine habitat. We may not be able to save the mana-
tee in the long term, but our efforts are certainly the
right thing to do.
And those efforts may help save other creatures
along the way.

It's the little things
National Geographic magazine environmental
writer Michael Parfit offers us some good advice on
saving what's left as we enter the new year. "Most of
the ruination of the planet proceed with small events -
the spraying of lawns; the dumping of oil; the demand
for wormless apples, beachfront cottages, shrimp and
layers of packaging in which we all partake."
Parfit also says he believes many mainstream en-
vironmental groups aren't being as much help as they
could be because of their frequent cries that the end is
near, over one issue or another. "Environmental groups
have thrived on catastrophism. If fills their coffers and
defines successful battles. Yet the war is being lost:
slowly, relentlessly, the world grows more damaged.
"To fight this," Parfit concludes, "environmentalists
have urged corporations to become more cautious and

Snapper, sheepshead
By Capt. Mike Heistand
Rough seas and high winds kept most fisher close
to port last week, but the few willing to brave the
weather did very well with snapper and grouper off-
shore, reds and sheepshead in the backwater.
Capt. Phil Shields said he's been catching black
grouper up to 15 pounds about 15 miles out in the Gulf.
Farther out about 30 miles he's catching some
30-pound grouper, lane snapper, trigger fish and man-
grove snapper.
Capt Rick Gross said sheepshead, redfish and a few
tripletail have been caught when the weather calms.
Capt. Mark Bradow said sheepies and reds are
his best bets, as well as a few tripletail.
On my boat Magic we've been catching some
amberjack, some up to 60 pounds, and some mangrove
snapper, hog fish and lane snapper. In the backwater,
mangrove snapper, sheepshead and a few reds have
come to the hook.
Capt. Tom Chaya reports snapper, reds and a few
catch-and-release snook have been popular, as well as
some sheepshead.
Bill at Island Discount Tackle said offshore best
bets are grouper, snapper and amberjack. In the back-
water, sheepshead, redfish and sheepshead are thick.
Expect the sheepshead fishing to improve as the sea-
son goes on. 4
Good luck and good fishing.

DISCOUNT TACKLE



JANUARY I
by BILL LOWMAN
I t seems that the trick to catching fish in January is a
simple one. Go after the fish that are available now,
not the species you were catching a few months ago.
The 50 and 60 degree waters are a vastly different envi-
ronment than the waters of the fall.
GROUPER will be on the move this month. Offshore,
S. you won't have to travel as far to find keepers. You can
Find them as shallow as 40 feet if you have some numbers
that everyone else doesn't have.
Inshore grouper fishermen will be the real winter win-
ners. Gag grouper make their appearance along most of
the rocky bottom channels. The Tampa Bay ship's chan-
I nel, from Egmont Key to Port Manatee, is an example of
prime hunting grounds for backwater grouper this month.
The ship's channel was sliced out of rock and the edges
quickly slant inward from approx. 25 to 40 feet. The grou-
per hover on this slanting edge, especially in unusually
rocky areas.
When looking for grouper, drifting or anchoring near
- -* likely looking spots is an effective technique but trolling
*. is the way to cover the most ground. Grouper will rise
quite a way to strike a passing lure. Your best bet is to
present a 7" Bomber or Rapala a few feet above the rocky
slope of the channel. Using your depth finder to stay on
*a m the edge, you have a real good chance of catching some
grouper.
TRIPLE-TAIL are a little bonus for anyone trolling this
month. You need to look around every channel marker,
crab trap buoy or any floating debris for a hiding triple-
tail. Distinguished by their large rear dorsal and anal fins
that look like two extra tails, "trips" will hide under and
around floating structure. Spinning tackle rigged with ten
pound test line and a small piece of 30 pound leader are
Ithe weapons of choice. Live shrimp make the best bait.
SHEEPSHE2'.D are one of the mainstay winter quar-
ries. Look for them around any structure, such as bridges,
docks, piers and rocky bottom areas. Sand fleas, small
crabs, and tube worms are probably your best baits. How-
ever, they will take shrimp and pieces of clam.
TROUT will take an artificial lure almost as readily as
they'll take live bait. That's one of their most appealing
traits.
For sinking artificial, try the soft plastics. The soft
shrimp-like, curly tail or straight tail plastic body is im-
JA'- Q1paled on a lead headed jig and bounced along the bottom.
Published by JLowman -Publishing.......................

Remember ... the new bag limit on tripletail is two per
person per day. See page 9.
are the most popular brand names. Try using dark col-
ors on cloudy days or when the water is murky. Bright
colors seem to work best when the water is more clear.
Tr'G1 .r .7H. and SEA .I-:SS are fun to catch.
Look for them in many of the same places you catch
sheepshead or snapper. All of the artificial reefs are
likely spots. The Skyway Bridge reefs are especially
productive. Cut bait or shrimp will work well. Light
tackle and size 1 or 1/0 hooks will do.
Good Luck this month. Amberjack, mackerel, blue-
fish and flounder are also making a showing right now.

A SHIMANO TIP:
THE CALCUTTA 400
The long-awaited Shimano
Calcutta 400 casting reel is now at
Island Discount Tackle. With its
cold-forged aluminum frame, gold-
-~. anodized finish and large line capac-
k- ity, the CT-400 has the needed fea-
tures fo saltwater use.
Providing increased resistance to saltwater cor-
rosion and added strength, the Calcutta 400 is built
with a one-piece cold-forged aluminum frame.
As with all Calcutta casting reels, the CT400 in-
cludes Shimano's Variable Brake System (VBS), a
centrifugal braking system that gives anglers con-
trol over backlashes while maintaining total
freespool.
For instant hook-setting and no backplay in the
CT400's handle, Shimano has included its Super
Stopper anti-reverse system which uses a one-way
roller bearing. This system has proven itself on the
Calcutta 200 in being tighter in operation and more
durable than traditional ratchet and pawl anti-reverse
systems.
The CT400 also features Shimano's Power
Handle for fish-fighting leverage, soft, oversized
paddles to provide a firm, comfortable grip, and a
QuickFire II clutch bar to give anglers the ability to
control both the spool and clutch with the thumb
alone.

A PENN TIP:
Penn's midsize star drag reels,
renowned for their versatility and
world-record-setting performance,
t will find that reputation enhanced
even more with the introduction of
the Penn 5000GCS high speed per-
R -w. formance reel.
Designed around a precisely engineered, high-
strength graphite frame, the new 5000GCS is rug-
gedly built to assure perfect spool and frame
alignment, even under the torque and strain of
fighting powerful fish. Providing added strength
are Penn's exclusive, corrosion-resistant metal
inserts in both front and rear spacer bars, while
durability and good looks are evident in the reel's
comfortable contoured side plates, set off by the
polished stainless steel rings of the graphite
frame.
The new 5000GCS sports a lightning fast
5.3:1 gear ratio. With 4 stainless steel ball bear-
ings, the 5000GCS is a pleasure to cast and re-
trieve. Once a hookup occurs, there's a large line
capacity available up to 600 yds of 20# mono -
on a light, yet super strong, black anodized alu-
minum spool

Select Lightning Rod MVP com-
bines a new technology breakthrough
with the Lightning Rod reputation for
proven quality. MVP stands for Maxi-
mum Vectran Performance and
that's what you'll get with this Vectian
reinforced tip. The tip of the rod is
wrapped in Vectran, which is stron-
ger and more forgiving than graph-
ite. This unique wrap increases tip
toughness and durability by over
50%.

A SILSTAR TIP:

TITANIUM
SHIELDEDTM LINE
GUIDE INSERTS AVAIL-
ABLE ON VISION IMT &
LABRADOR RODS ...
The line guide inserts on Vision IMT
and Labrador rods are made of silicon
carbide (SIC), and are then coated with
super-hard and smooth titanium-nitride.
Titanium-nitride is nearly impossible to
scratch, which means there is less possi-
bility of line abrasion. It is also effective
in preventing guide damage caused by the
new braided lines.
Additionally, the smooth titanium-ni-
tride coating reduces the amount of fric-
tion produced as the line comes into con-
tact with the guide insert. The benefit of
reduced friction is of course increased
casting distance.
