Easter riot erupts at Coquina Beach


By Paul Roat
Let the numbers explain it:
1,000 people watching or participating in a fight
at Coquina Beach, causing:
more than 30 law enforcement officers representing:
four different agencies to quell the disturbance,
but not before:
six people were injured and:
two people were arrested.
Not at all just another Easter in Bradenton Beach.
Bradenton Beach police officers, called to investigate
a traffic accident involving two vehicles Sunday at Co-
quina Beach, got more than they bargained for as the
motorists, upset about the crash, began to duke it out.
Before the incident was over, more than 40 people



Reef Reacher


captain

headlines
SBy Bonner Presswood
The newspaper rack distributor works in the wee
hours of the night putting out Islander Bystanders for folks
to read first thing Wednesday morning. Last Thursday, as
the distributor made his check-up rounds, he stopped to
call in and ask, "Who's mad at you? All the papers in all
the racks are gone- and it can'tjust be the Easter rush."
Well, we surmised, Capt. Phil Shields, owner of
the charter boat Reef Reacher, and his hired captain,
Roy Salgado. They're the only ones we could think of
that would be upset at anything in last week's paper.
Salgado and Shields figured prominently in Bob
Ardren's outdoor column last week, a commentary that
featured a recent charter taken on the ReefReacher by
three Bradenton men and a friend from Michigan. Lo-
cal businessmen who were shocked by the treatment
they received at the hands of both Salgado and Shields.
The fishers were so stunned, they turned in reports
to the U.S. Coast Guard. The story of their day's fish-
ing aboard ReefReacher began with a trip 30 miles out
into the Gulf at high speeds through in dense fog.
There was a near collision with a freighter, engine fail-
ure and an additional charge for the ride back to shore
in lieu of the lengthy tow trip and, finally, the loss of
their catch to the crew sold for a tip.
Apparently Ardren's column in last week's edi-
tion of the paper clouded Salgado's better judgment.
He proceeded to collect every newspaper from every
rack and distribution point from Rotten Ralph's in
Anna Maria to Cortez.
The newspaper was tipped off by several callers
who either witnessed Salgado taking the papers or ob-
served his Chevy Blazer filled with papers at the Reef
Reacher's berth at Galati Marina in Anna Maria.
Shields has not returned calls to The Islander By-
stander.
When questioned about the full load of papers in
the back seat of his vehicle, Salgado's initial comment
was, "They're free, aren't they?"
He admitted to Manatee County Deputy Sheriff
Steve Ogline that he took the papers, nearly 3,000 cop-
ies, that he acted alone without instruction, and then he
refused to state a reason.
Well, the papers are free, in reasonable quantities.
Salgado's actions may constitute a theft of service the
service to the advertisers and an interruption of a busi-
ness operation for one person to take every newspaper
displayed in the outdoor racks, according to Ogline.
Salgado's overnight raid of the newspapers from
The Islander Bystander's racks may include felony

what some called a riot.
No one was seriously hurt, but six people received
medical attention including two police officers -
and two were arrested.
Fermin Gaona Jr., 21, of Dover, was charged with
inciting a riot and disorderly conduct. Carlos Isunza,
18, of Bradenton, was charged with obstructing justice
and disorderly conduct.
The two persons arrested were involved in a minor
traffic accident. Words, then blows, were exchanged af-
ter the wreck. As the altercation intensified, a crowd gath-

Bradenton Beach officers Mike Klemkosky and
Tom McGill both sustained minor injuries during the
ruckus. Four other people were injured, two requiring
a trip to a hospital.
The beach was closed and cleared for about two
hours in an attempt to end the disturbance.
Sunday's problems at Coquina Beach were not the
first. Fights have erupted at the beach before during sum-
mer weekends and holidays at Memorial Day, the Fourth
of July and Labor Day, butEaster has generally been calm,
Bradenton Beach Police Chief Jack Maloney said.
Maloney also said the city's officers were lucky not
to have received more serious injuries in light of their lack
of helmets.

Beachfront vegetation hacking awaits action


By Cynthia Finn
Islander Reporter
Possible prosecution for the recent destruction of
beachfront vegetation in the city of Anna Maria rests
in the hands of the state attorney's office.
The alleged offense took place March 27 on city-
owned property just south of the intersection of Gulf
Boulevard and Palm Avenue. The property is part of
the Anna Maria City Gulffront Park where controversy
has centered recently on parking availability.
The destruction of sea grapes, century plants and
some sea oats by two citizens have resulted in charges
filed by the Manatee County Sheriffs Office.
The citizens cannot be named at this time, accord-
ing to Sgt. Jim Tillner, while the capias requests are
with the state.
One of the citizens has been charged with a
felony count for criminal mischief and another
felony count for littering. The second person is
charged with a felony count for criminal mischief.
As third-degree felonies, each count could result in
a maximum sentence of five years per charge.
To be a felony the destroyed vegetation must be
more than 500 pounds and in excess of $1,000 in value.
The cut and removed vegetation which was
dumped in the handicap parking spaces on Palm Av-
enue reportedly weighed 2,360 pounds and the
value was set at approximately $2,300.
Also, a path was cleared through the remaining
vegetation to the beach.
"That alone poses flood hazards during the storm
season," said the deputy who responded to the initial

complaint. "I believe the public works department is
hoping to get it replanted before that season begins."
There is no indication of when the state attorney


might respond to the.capias requests.
The area has been marked with crime-scene tape to
alert beachwalkers to the hazards of exposed roots.


Mayor discusses priorities for administration


By Pat Copeland
Islander Reporter
"I look at the job as completely new," the new
mayor of Holmes Beach proclaimed last week.
Mayor Bob VanWagoner took time to discuss
some priorities for his administration last week after
being sworn into office on March 25.
"The fact that I haven't been a member of council
might prove to be a benefit," he said. "I have to do a
lot of research on the charter, the ordinances and
amendments and try and make some sense out of
them."
VanWagoner said he wants to get a feel for the
checks and balances of the charter and what its authors
intended.
"It's coincidental that the charter review commit-
tee is in effect this year. The mayor and council mem-
bers, as well as past elected officials, should work with
the committee to clarify conflicts that come up."
Another area he will address is governmental op-
erations.
"I'll inform council members of my thinking dur-
ing the portion of the meeting reserved for comments
from the mayor and share things I learn so they can
help me and react to me. The council is a very strong
part of this government -it's like Congress. And there
are checks and balances that have sometimes been ig-
nored or glossed over. I think the system has gotten out
of kilter."
He said he'll take a close look at the city's code
enforcement department and the move from within
public works to the police department.
"Some of the problems that arise belong in the

... and makes council appointments


Holmes Beach Mayor Bob VanWagoner re-
versed procedure and asked council members to in-
dicate which liaison appointments they would like.
According to the city's legislative procedures
code the appointments are to be made by the mayor.
There are five positions listed in the code legis-
lative; buildings and grounds; recreation, beautifica-
tion and parks; roads, bridges, drainage, canals and
erosion; and recycling and solid waste.
"Because of the checks and balances of the city
charter and the kind of government we're following
here, I'm uncomfortable with telling the council who
the liaisons should be," the mayor said.
VanWagoner said he wanted council members to
tell him what assignments they wanted and last week he
named liaisons based on their preferences. They are:
Luke Courtney: legislative matters, Tourist De-
velopment Council, Anna Maria Island Community
Center, shore and beach concerns and the police de-


public works department and some in the police depart-
ment. I want to make sure people understand the dif-
ferences."
In police matters, VanWagoner said he'll study
speed limit enforcement and plans to make residents
more alert about certain types of recurring crime such
as residential burglaries. He strongly supports the
Neighborhood Watch program.

According to a survey completed prior to
March 1, the seat belt compliance rate in
Holmes Beach was well below state averages.
During the two-week period that Operation
Beltway was in effect, many violators were
ticketed by police.
A survey using the same times of day and
locations completed after the two-week period
showed the seat belt compliance rate had
jumped 12 percent.

Council to oust canal squatters


By Pat Copeland
Islander Reporter
The Holmes Beach City Council last week voted
to file trespass action against five squatters owners
of boats remaining in the city's T-end canals.
It will be the final chapter in an 11-year struggle
to find a solution to the nagging question of who has
a right to dock in the canals on Marina Drive be-
tween 72nd and 77th Streets. Last year the council
gave that right to property owners in certain subdi-
visions developed by Peder Mickelson and Son, Inc.,
whose deeds contain specific language granting
them the right to use boat space.
The city sent letters to the owners of all boats il-
legally docked in the canals requesting that they
move their boats to free the dock space for use by the
deeded owners. There are five boats remaining de-
spite repeated requests by the city to have them
moved.
At a recent work session, city attorney Patricia
Petruff suggested that the city file trespass action in
circuit court against the squatters.


"We hope to have a court order before any action
is taken," she explained. "That way there could be no
question about the authority to contract with a company
to tow the boats."
Petruff said each boat will cost the city $125 in
court costs and $20 for a sheriffs deputy to serve the
notice. She said the legal fees could not be recovered
by the city.
Could the city levy fines against the boat owners?
asked Councilman Ron Robinson.
"There is no provision for a fine in the ordinance,
but council could amend the ordinance," Petruff re-
plied. "Then it could go to the code enforcement board
to find if they are in violation and a fine could start
running. The only way to collect a fine, unless they
voluntarily pay, is to place a lien against real property
or personal property. That's another legal process."
A lien could be placed against the boats, Council
Chairman Luke Courtney said, but Petruff questioned
whether or not the city could force the sale of a vessel.
What if the city must have a boat removed from the
canal? Councilman Don Maloney asked.


Residents offer city a parking lot


By Cynthia Finn
Islander Reporter
Linda Kapisak and Larry Albert of Gladiolus Street
own some "downtown" Anna Maria property they'd
like their city to have for parking purposes at a price.
The vacant and recently cleared property is at 9907
Gulf Drive, on the southeast corner of Gulf Drive and
Spring Avenue. It is just south of the City Hall park-
ing lot and diagonally across the street from the Anna
Maria Post Office.
The purchase price, according to the owners'
March 29 letter to Mayor Chuck Shumard, is $180,000.
They say that figure "is below market value and our
terms can be flexible to accommodate the city's bud-
get."
Shumard says the lot could accommodate seven


parking spaces. The matter was to be discussed at the
city commission's April 9 meeting.
Kapisak and Albert say in their proposal, "This
property would be desirable for the much needed park-
ing in the city of Anna Maria. It is the only large com-
mercial property close to City Hall, the post office, the
Community Center and other businesses that are ac-
cessed daily by most residents and visitors to Anna
Maria.
"The present lack of parking creates a safety haz-
ard for everyone, especially during the rush hours from
9 am. to 1 p.m."
They conclude, "The purchase of this parcel by the
city would be a benefit to all the taxpayers of Anna
Maria and would guarantee adequate parking for the
future."


The city could contract with a marine towing com-
pany and a boat storage facility and the ownei would
have to pay the charges, Petruff said. Four of the boats
are valuable boats worth thousands of dollars that the
owners would want back, she added.
"If they are not redeemed within a certain amount
of time a judge could order them to auction," Petruff
noted. "But your goal is to get the people to move the
boats."
In other business council passed a resolution sup-
porting the Anna Maria Turtle Watch program. The
resolution urged the Department of Environmental Pro-
tection to suspend the order denying the group a per-
mit for the 1996 season and allow it to operate under
1994 conditions until the issue can be mediated.

Charter review commission begins its task


By Pat Copeland
Islander Reporter
Despite reservations from two members, the
Holmes Beach Charter Review Commission agreed at
its first meeting last week to take a look at a city man-
ager form of government.
"I feel this city is big enough now that we really
need a city manager," Chairman Betty Hill said. "With
the size of the budget we have, we really need some
professional management."
Bob Jorgensen said he will try to keep an open
mind but he has a mistrust for that form of government
He expressed fears the city would become a training
ground for city managers.
"We don't seem to have mayors that are lacking in
ability," he noted "They seem to hit the ground running
and become competent in a hurry. It's an expensive al-

ternative and I don't think it would fit here."
Joy Courtney agreed with Jorgensen.
"It'll be a hard sell with me," she said. "About
three years ago I thought it was a good idea, but I don't
anymore. I like government by five, not one. The
mayor and council may make mistakes but they are
elected by the people and there iS a system for correct-
ing those mistakes. We've had a recent taste of a city
manager's attitude, and I don't believe Holmes Beach
needs it"
"It's not a government by one," James Bell
stressed. "In my opinion, we should have a profes-
sional."
Holmes Beach Clerk Leslie Ford said one problem
pointed out by other city clerks to her is the issue of
litigation stemming from federal laws that elected of-
ficials aren't aware of.


The city attorney should be responsible for that,
Courtney said, but Ford said the attorney may not be
aware of all the new legislation either.
Ford told the charter review members that the
Florida League of Cities has numerous data, speakers
and videos on the city manager form of government it
can provide to the committee. Members agreed to send
for the material. She also said the Florida City/County
Managers Association would be willing to send a
speaker to give a presentation to the group.
Members then began discussing the charter, sec-
tion by section. The first discussion centered on the
city's two-year residency requirement for candidates.
Hill said the requirement could be challenged and
Courtney felt the commission should get the attorney's
opinion on it.
"Any lawyer who tells you how a lawsuit will
come out is nuts," Bell noted.
Jorgensen said the residency requirement should be
left in the charter and can be changed if a challenge is
made.
Members agreed to include it in a list of questions
to be submitted to the attorney later in the review.
The second discussion concerned filling council
vacancies. This is currently done by appointment of the
council.
"When it happened a few years ago, people thought
it (the appointee) should be the second highest vote get-
ter (in the most recent election)," Courtney said.
If four people ran in the election, three goz elected
and the fourth person got no votes, is it fair to appoint
that person? Hill asked.
"Anyone can run for office, even a nincompoop,"
added Jorgensen.
Courtney said three sitting council members could
vote for a friend.
"The council members are the electors, and we
elected the electors," Jorgensen noted. "They ought to
have the ability and intelligence to appoint another
person. It's only for a finite period of time to fulfill
requirements of the remainder of the term."
Members will continue discussion on April 11 at
2 p.m. beginning with Article III, 3.10.

Council votes to
oppose proposed
ambulance shuffle
Leave our ambulances alone!
That was the refrain in Bradenton Beach last
week, as the city council unanimously agreed to
send a strongly worded letter to the Manatee
County Commission urging the proposal to
shuffle county ambulance service be dropped.
At issue is a controversial plan called peak
demand staffing. Proponents of the plan state
that, by moving ambulances to more central
locations during peak demand hours, a more
efficient and shorter response time would result.
Opponents of the plan, including Anna Maria
Fire Chief Andy Price, say the proposal would
remove the Island ambulance in the evenings and,
under a "worst-case scenario," have the nearest
ambulance to serve the Island at night located at
Manatee Memorial Hospital in Bradenton.
"I believe the proposal is very unsatisfactory,"
Councilman Gail Cole said. "It's a poor deal."
The matter is expected to be addressed
again April 10 during the Island Elected Offi-
cials' meeting. Price said he hopes all the Island
cities will oppose the ambulance proposal.

... and another blast at plan


By Cynthia Finn
Commentary
Pat Copeland's reports in The Islander Bystander
about Mike Latessa's new ambulance-location scheme
are alarming. I offer my own personal account as an
example:
At 6:15 a.m. March 18,1994, I was home alone. The
child I was carrying was two weeks from her due date.
Several days of intermittent, seemingly mild labor pains
were no indication of anything abnormal to me already
a mother of three or to my obstetrician.
Without warning, suddenly, and nearly instanta-
neously, the baby was born.
After dialing 911 for an ambulance, I stupidly
walked around with our daughter, carrying her into the
light to see if she was OK and to retrieve a cover for
her. I had no idea if she or I was OK. I had no idea
about a lot.
Within minutes I know reports would confirm

RVs may be 'X'd' at
Cortez Beach
Recreation vehicle owners may have to find a new
place to watch the sunset in a few weeks if the
Bradenton Beach City Council has its way.
Council members agreed last week to proceed with an
ordinance prohibiting RVs from Cortez Beach. Residents
in the area have complained that the big motorized camp-
ers block their view of the beach and water.
City Attorney Alan Prather drafted an ordinance
that would make it illegal to park vehicles of an as-yet-
undetermined length at Cortez Beach. However, Coun-
cilman John Kaufmann pointed out that the popularity
of sport utility vehicles and the size of some of the
big trucks may mean that the oversized "family"
cars couldn't park at the beach, either.
Kaufmann also said that height of the vehicles
should be a factor in the new law.
Council members agreed to table the matter until
further research on how big is too big could be con-
ducted. The RV parking ordinance is expected to come
back before the council in May.


it was just a few the paramedics were here. They at-
tended to both of us and transported us to Blake Hos-
pital. The baby needed an immediate blood transfusion.
My doctor told me I could have suffered from severe
hemorrhaging.
I cringe to think of what might have happened if
the ambulance we needed hadn't been available or had
been distantly stationed.
We were billed nearly $700 for that ride to Blake
and there was no insurance to cover it. A small price
to pay, in retrospect, for the needed emergency assis-
tance. That bill would have been the same, even if the
response time had been longer and the outcome not so
pretty.
As a property owner and taxpayer and one
whose human clock does not tick according to
anyone's peak demand staffing I am appalled at this
proposal and the means by which it is being presented.
County commissioners, are you listening?

Please let 'em grow
The spate of apparently illegal trimmings some
have called it butchering of environmentally impor-
tant trees on the Island is alarming.
Two recent incidents in Bradenton Beach of man-
grove cutting and this week's report in Anna Maria
where private citizens cut down and removed sea oats
and sea grape trees from city property have prompted
investigations. Hefty fines are possible.
Mangroves the focus of much of the tree atten-
tion are protected by state law. The spindly trees
provide a vital source of food for juvenile fish, crabs
and other marine life through bark and leaf detritus.
The mangrove roots provide shelter for the little
critters. Birds and insects live in the tree's branches.
And mangrove roots stabilize the shore and prevent
erosion. In fact, mangroves actually cause the shore to
grow as they "walk" farther and farther into the water.
Mangroves are very slow growing trees. A 10- or 12-
foot mangrove tree may be 10 or more years old. Trees 50
or 60 feet high may have been here for half a century.
Yes, state law governing the pruning of mangroves
is complicated and seemingly the rules change with the
tide. State lawmakers have revised rules protecting
mangroves almost annually, and appear to be consid-
ering further changes this month.
And yes, it is hard to keep up with what you can or
cannot do to the trees.
Sea grapes and sea oats serve an important role in
beach ecology and are protected by law on state lands.
Sea oats send down long roots that help hold the sand
in place. During high winds and seas the sea oats serve
to protect the beach and shore.
Sea grapes, native trees with a high tolerance for
salt and limited need for water, are one of the few trees
that grow in sandy soil, providing shade for beachgoers
and a home for myriad birds.
In Anna Maria, the citizens decided a view and a path
to the beach in front of their residences on city prop-
erty and most probably state land forward of the city's
boundary were more important than shore protection.
They took what amounts to two huge lots of sea
oats and sea grapes down to ankle-to-knee height. They
removed a swath of plantings completely for a walk-
way when a city sidewalk immediately in front of their
homes leads to adjoining accesses.
To make matters even worse, they dumped the
trimmings on the handicapped parking spaces on Gulf
Boulevard.
Florida Sea Grant's marine extension agent John
Stevely said, "That's a really sad event."
When it comes to protection of these valuable assets,
it's everyone's responsibility and the flagrant disregard for
the environment is everyone's loss.

Holmes Beach needs to enforce
crosswalk laws
Last week's issue contained a letter from John
Bacich regarding the crosswalks in Anna Maria.
The utter disregard of these crosswalks extends to
Holmes Beach as well. In the 17 years I have lived
here, I have never had a car stop for me when I have
been trying to use a crosswalk.
As Mr. Bacich stated, the fine on the Circle is
$69.50 What can be done to enforce this on our Island?
Edie LeCroy, Holmes Beach
DEP right in denying Shumard
turtle permit
The Florida Department of Environmental Protec-
tion recently denied a permit renewal for sea turtle nest
monitoring to Chuck Shumard of Anna Maria Island.
This action was correct and overdue.
Shumard had long objected to state guidelines and
particularly to restrictions against the routine use of the
hatcheries. He argued that his hatchery produced more sea
turtle hatchlings than nests life in situ (where laid by the
nesting female), and offered numbers to back up the claim.
In fact, major studies, over many years and using
a large number of sample nests, have shown that nests
left in situ generally result in better hatch rates. Grain
size (of sand), gas exchange, moisture level and tem-
perature are some of the factors involved.
Nevertheless, Shumard's concerns are real and are
not unique to Anna Maria Island. Developed beaches
can pose hazards, and DEP guidelines include sugges-
tions to minimize them.
For example, nests may be cordoned off in areas
with heavy foot traffic, and a wide variety of methods
are offered to reduce the shield lighting. Beach light-
ing may deter females from nesting. It is lethal, how-
ever, for hatchlings which are attracted landward, to-
ward the light and away from the water. Any hatchlings
not killed by predators exhaust their very limited en-
ergy supply wandering disoriented on land.
But hatch success is not measured by numbers
alone.
Consider: DEP guidelines dictate leaving in situ
even those nests which though above the high tide line


are nevertheless likely to be washed over and/or
flooded. In these cases, there is a probability that the
hatch rate will be low if the nests hatch at all. What
makes this risk worthwhile?
Sex is temperature determined in sea turtle em-
bryos. Warmer nests result in female hatchlings and
cooler nests in males. In Florida, most in situ nests with
good hatch rates are high on the beach in dry, warm
sand and probably produce mostly females. Though
nests close to the water risk flooding and washout,
hatchlings that do survived are usually robust and
healthy and are more likely to be males.
When hatcheries are used, they are located high on
the beach in relative safety, in dry, warm sand where
they are likely to produce female hatchlings. If the nests
rescued to hatcheries are in fact those that were risk-
prone but might have produced males, even a 100%
hatch rate will contribute little toward continuing the
species. We need a few good males ...
DEP sea turtle conservation guidelines are based
on nearly 50 years of cumulative research and knowl-
edge. The prohibition against hatcheries is science-
based, reflecting advances in sea turtle biology, and it
is not new. The individuals representing the DEP are
experienced field biologists, intelligent, patient, and
fair.
Shumard was repeatedly warned. To express
"shock" at the state's denial of his permit or to charac-
terize it as a 'vendetta' is unrealistic as well as melo-
dramatic.
Perhaps sea turtles and his constituency would be
better served if Shumard in his capacity as mayor were
to use his considerable energies to bring about change
in understanding his own group and in beach lighting.
After all, with long-range species protection as a goal,
to begin to make sea turtle habitat safer would be a
timely endeavor.
Meanwhile, I hope that new volunteers come for-
ward soon, willing to learn, and to work within the
rules. I'm sure I speak for many others involved in sea
turtle nest monitoring and conservation along the west
coast of Florida in offering my support.

THISE WERE THE BAYS
Part 14, Will Bean's Dream
by June Alder


Tony Jannus smiles from the cockpit of his 1914 Benoist seaplane.


WORLD'S FIRST

AIRLINE


As 1914 dawned Charles M. Roser,
the conservative bankroller of Will
Bean's Anna Maria Beach Resort, made
an uncharacteristic splash with a public-
ity stunt.
It was a headline-grabber right up
there with the first guy who went over
Niagara Falls in a barrel. It made the
front page of the New York Times and
snagged a top spot in the week's Pathe
Newsreel footage.
Roser was one of a dozen or so
backers for an audacious enterprise a
passenger airline between St. Petersburg
(population 9,000) and Tampa (40,000).
The first flight took off early on New
Year's Day amid the kind of hoopla that
Florida promoters would become fa-
mous for in the 1920s.
A crowd of 3,000 jammed the St.
Petersburg pier and surrounding water-
front for the event. The handsome, 25-
year-old pilot, Tony Jannus who had
a girl in every airportt from Washing-
ton, D.C.,on down South sat at the
controls of his two-seater seaplane as an
auctioneer called for bids to go aloft
with him.
Former St. Petersburg Mayor Abe
Pheil made the high bid of $400. But he
wasn't the only passenger. He took with
him a Swift Premium ham, later to be
featured in the packing company's na-
tional advertising.
Flying 150 feet above the bay wa-
ters "He can go even higher if he
chooses," marveled the Tampa Times
- Jannus landed the politician and the
porker on the Hillsborough River 23
minutes later as thousands of Tampans
cheered lustily. The return flight a half-
hour later took only 20 minutes thanks
to a tail wind. (This was at a time when
it took two hours to travel from St. Pe-


tersburg to Tampa by boat, six hours by
car and 12 hours by train).
Jannus kept up his flights for three
months, carrying 1,204 passengers
across the bay. The standard rate was
$5 except for super-hefty passengers.
They had to pay an extra five cents for
each pound over 200 pounds.
Besides his scheduled flights
Jannus took tourists "whipping through
the whitecaps" from Pass-a-Grille on
25-minute flights over the Gulf up to
Egmont Key and then back over
Tampa Bay.
A St. Petersburg Evening Indepen-
dent reporter wrote: "You rode in an
open cockpit, didn't even have a wind-
shield. We went about 60 miles an
hour. We ran over a pelican that hit one
of the struts and broke its neck. The bay
was alive with wild ducks, and Tony
reached down and tried to grab one as
we went through a flock."
Did Jannus ever take off from the
Anna Maria wharf for a spin with some
lucky resort investors? We don't know
for sure. But Roser wasn't likely to
pass up cashing in on his investment.
Unfortunately, the St. Petersburg-
Tampa Airboat Line the world's
first commercial airline failed to
make money. After his backers bailed
out on him, Jannus moved on.
It's doubtful that Roser and Bean
benefited financially from Jannus's ex-
ploits, because their resort went rapidly
downhill after 1914. As for Jannus, he
was killed on Oct. 1, 1915, when the
plane he was testing for the Czar of
Russia crashed into the Black Sea.

of 1914

Finn's writing a plus
for Island paper
The journalism of Cynthia Finn in my opinion is
surprising many of us who first knew her at the Anna
Maria Island Community Center.
I find it difficult to find just the special descriptive
words to tell Cynthia how super I feel her coverage of
news here on Anna Maria Island truly is. Add to that
her catching photos to enhance many of your articles.
We are so very fortunate to have The Islander By-
stander, our Island news for which we are so apprecia-
tive and thankful.
Keep up the good work.
Howard and Ruth Burkhead, Holmes Beach
Sirens need to shrill over
county ambulance plan
Please help keep an ambulance full time on Anna
Maria Island.
The 15,000 to 20,000 residents of Anna Maria Is-
land need the ambulance to be stationed at a central
location. Presently it has been kept at the Anna Maria
Fire Station on Marina Drive in Holmes Beach. This
works fine.
Medics who operate the Island ambulance have
been praised innumerable times by residents thankful
for the speedy and efficient service. The critically ill
have had medical help quickly which, no doubt, has
saved many lives.
What will it take to convince the Manatee County
Commission to permanently station an ambulance in
the center of Anna Maria Island?
The entire Island population will thank you for
considering this lifesaving service for us.
Carolyne Norwood, Anna Maria City

Tour of Homes sees success
The Tour of Homes for the benefit of the Anna
Maria Island Community Center was successful be-
cause of the wonderful help we received.
First of all we want to thank our co-sponsors, The
'Islander Bystander, for its news coverage and support,
First National Bank of Manatee for underwriting the
cost of the printing, the Island Garden Center for the
use of its palms and plants, and Island Florist for the
beautiful flower arrangement
Thank you to the home owners who unselfishly
opened their homes for the tour. We appreciate their


support and could never thank them enough for shar-
ing their homes with us.
Thank you to the Boutique Committee chaired by
Dolores Harrell with helpers Joan Pettigrew, Zita
Gavin and Ann Home. They worked hard for many
months making beautiful craft items to sell at the Bou-
tique to benefit the center.
Thank you to the Tour Committee, Marcia Powers,
Linda Lone, Deana Reamlin, Dolores Harrell and Zita
Gavin. They worked hard and were there to do what
needed to be done.
Thank you to all the tour volunteers who served as
guides in the homes on the day of the tour and to all the
people who visited the homes to support the Center.
The day was picture perfect and the Tour of Homes
was a success. Thank you. .

Longboat residents confused
over bridges
In The Islander Bystander dated March 21, there
was an article about a request for change in openings
of both Anna Maria Island bridges. I am now com-
pletely confused over the Island's stand on fixed-span
bridges vs. draw bridges. Is it the fixed span or the
Island's amenities that generates more traffic?
What Councilwoman Billie Martini is requesting,
in effect, is a 66.6% fixed span- 100% is no good, but
66.6% is OK I'm confused.
Dozens of boat ramps have been built on the Is-
land, a new nature park, $25,000 to make the public
beach restaurant look more appealing, "traffic circle"
in the middle of a state highway, and many other ac-
tivities to encourage tourists and residents to visit Anna
Maria Island, but you don't want a fixed bridge because
it might bring too many people to Anna Maria Island.
But a once-an-hour opening is the solution, yep! a
66.6% fixed span, wow!
The bridges were originally built to take people to
and from the Island and the mainland. These are not
one-way bridges. Why do the people on Anna Maria
Island think that they should be the judge of the type
of bridge that should be built. I would think the people
returning from work or play to the mainland should
have just as much right to determine the type of
bridges.
I wonder if Councilwoman Martini could imagine

Union Jack has both
bottom and top
I am a very frequent visitor from the U.K. to
this friendly and attractive area. Like many foreign
visitors, I appreciate the efforts of many local busi-
nesses who, in addition to the Stars and Stripes, fly
courtesy foreign flags. This is very evident in flags
of Canada, Germany and Britain. We look upon
this as a gesture of friendship and welcome.
It should be noted, however, that most flags
have a top and bottom and should be flown in the
correct way. For many flags this is self-evident
and on only rare occasions are errors made. The
British flag (Union Jack) is more subtle and re-
quires more attention to tell the top from the bot-
tom. This results in a mixture of correct and upside
down displays of the flag.
The "British Pub" in Bradenton Beach hosts
a newly painted sign that is permanently wrong
way up.
I am sure that most Brits treat this with a wry
smile and accept that all parties mean well and are
not aware of the existence of a top and bottom.
One cannot, however, help but wonder what the
reaction would be by U.S. citizens who, when vis-
iting a foreign country, saw their national flag-.
being displayed in the inverted position.

Doolittle Tokyo Raiders remember
Sarasota will be the site of the 54th Anniversary
Reunion of the famous Doolittle Tokyo Raiders for
three days beginning Thursday, April 18, to be held at
Mote Marine in Sarasota. The Doolittle Raiders are the ,
American airmen who dropped the first bomb on Japan
in World War II.
In honor of the Doolittle Raid on Tokyo, the citi-
zens of Tucson, Ariz., presented a set of 80 sterling
goblets to the Raiders following World War II. In turn,
they were presented to the Air Force Academy in Colo-
rado Springs by General Doolittle on behalf of the sur-
viving members of the Raiders for safekeeping and
display between reunions.
The silver goblets are housed in a special glass-
enclosed trophy case which is guarded by two academy
cadets. In addition to the goblets, the case contains a
bottle of brandy to be used by the last two remaining
Raiders at the last reunion to toast their departed com-
rades.
Many of the goblets are already turned upside
down for the men who were killed in the raid or who
have since died. Each goblet is inscribed twice with a
Raider's name both right-side up and upside down
- so that the names are always readable.
At each reunion, the Raiders hold a brief ceremony Cadets guard past
to honor those who have passed away. This emotional Air Force Academy cadets stand watch over the goblets presented by the city of Tucson, Ariz., to the Doolittle
remembrance often marks the passing of additional Tokyo Raiders after World War II. They will be on display at the Raiders' 54th reunion to be held this month

Artistic expressions by Kip


By Cynthia Finn
Islander Reporter
"Whew. It felt good to get that out"
Those are the words of Kip Ackerman of Holmes
Beach, nearing the end of an interview.
A self-defined "expressionist painter," Kip is most
comfortable expressing his feelings about himself and
the world around him in line, shape and color.
Translating 36 years of life and philosophy into an
hour's conversation is another application of color and
form and he does not shy away from it.
The truth is, says Kip, engaging in artistic conver-
sation is a part of what he does.
By spending time with his clients, listening to them
and letting them express themselves, Kip says he has
developed "a knack for knowing what they want, what
techniques and style they like."
"I discover," he says, "how to paint on the surface
the feelings, the places, the philosophies they describe
to me."
An Island resident for three years, Kip has been
commissioned to create colorful exterior murals for
several commercial establishments, in addition to pri-
vate pieces and interior decorative wall paintings.
Samples of Kip's expressions can be found on the
exterior and interior of the Rod & Reel Pier in Anna
Maria and in progress on the exterior of the Gulf
Drive Cafe in Bradenton Beach.
"Art is a luxury too many people think they can't
afford," says Kip. "There's a lot of art out there and
people are not allowing themselves to experience it
because they think they can't."
That's where Kip feels he comes in. With his life-
long art experience, and his study of "the masters," Kip
believes he can give clients the luxury of what they
want at an affordable price.
A New Jersey native, Kip comes from a line of
artists. His grandfather, father and uncle made their liv-
ings as sign makers, illustrators and art directors.
He learned to draw as a young boy. In quiet places
like church, he was always given a pad and pencil. In
school he was a good student who was sometimes in
trouble for "always drawing."
"Right from the get-go," says Kip, "I knew inside
that that's what I was and would be an artist."
All through high school he worked with his father.
After high school he took some time off to travel, to
soul search the mind challenging the soul "Is this

really who I am?"
At 21 Kip entered Utah State University, where
both his brothers had preceded him, and sunk himself
into what he calls "an excellent art program for less
money than a lot of other places."
With an emphasis on fine art and drawing, Kip
says, "I took every art course and studio offering I
could. That's where I developed my philosophy the
importance of art in a person's life and my own
technique and style."
He says that in retrospect, admitting now that in
those earlier years he "was arrogant, wanting to do it
my way."
"But thank God all the studying sunk in despite
myself and I have come to apply all I learned. My own
techniques have definitely been enhanced by studying
the masters."
After college Kip remained in the Rocky Moun-
tains of Utah, working as a commercial art director and
then struggling to make ends meet as a freelancer.

A turning point came and he made a decision to
make a geographic change and give into the artist's
soul once and for all.
"I decided," he says, "that if I'm going to start, I
might as well do it in paradise."

To the sea
Paradise was going to be an island in the Carib-
bean, an escape from one reality to another, like some
of his favorite masters.
But Kip had a friend here on Anna Maria Island,
he had visited here and his friend suggested, "If you're
going to do the island thing, why don't you try living
on this island first?"
Kip took the bait. And here he is, where he has
"done a little bit of everything," supplementing his
fine-art expressionism by doing graphic art and design
- such as T-shirt designs for organizations like the

KIP, FROM PAGE 12

Anna Maria Island Historical Society and the Island
Players to make ends meet.
Kip says in his brochure that he specializes in vi-
sual expressions, emphasizing your business, personal
and social life.
As he aims in the direction of more private and
commercial commissions, Kip says, "I just want a
simple life. To eat and pay my bills."
The starving artist syndrome?
He smiles. "Financial insecurity goes along with the
territory. But artisn't a hobby with me. It's who I am, what
I've been for along time. It's a gift I have to share."
If money weren't a factor, Kip says his expression-
ist paintings would be "spiritual works totally from the
heart and the mind. A diary, a record of life."
Contemporary life?
He smiles again. "I don't know. I can't ever pin-
point it"
The walls of his home have been transformed by
his murals. The paradisical color of individual paint-
ings is on display. The tables in his studio are covered
with black and white drawings, works in progress.
I have this nonstop slide show in my head," Kip
explains. "When you get this one piece, you have to
grab it and get it down, while other scenes are going by
the whole time.
"Sometimes you miss it. But there are those ones
that must be captured. Even if just in a sketch to get
back to another time."
The next day Kip was at work on a marine-life
mural for the roadside exterior of the Gulf Drive Cafe.
Heads turned in the bumper-to-bumper traffic crawling
by patrons on their way in and out stopped to admire
the artist and his work.
"Oh, that's lovely," said a woman from the north.
"Wouldn't that be wonderful in our dining area?" she
said to her husband. "Too bad it's just a rental, not our
wall to change."
Kip's brush was in steady motion at the six-hour
mark. The dolphins weren't quite meeting his vision of
being playful.
"They will," he said, wiping his brow and smiling.
'They will."

The Island Poet
This is the time of the year when some folks
can't relax,
And all they do is gripe about paying their in-
come tax.
And you can hear them as they grumble and
bellyache,
As to how much of their money Uncle Sam
will take.
But the price we pay is small to live in this
great land,
And some of their complaints are really get-
ting out-of-hand.
So if some folks think our tax is just too much
to pay,
Let's remind them ships are leaving our
shores every day.

'Primary Colors' by
Anonymous
To credit a pseudo-sensational political ex-
pose to an anonymous author during an election
year probably guaranteed that this book would be
hyped. I found the book to be a series of trenchant
characterizations connected by rambling dialogue.
The perceived accuracy by the "insider" author
tends to encourage the reader to turn at least one
more page. This book surely qualifies for Ambrose
Bierce's reflections on another book, "the covers
of this book are too far apart."

'The Bookman's Wake'
by John Dunning
Book aficionados who love mysteries will die
for this one written by real life Denver bookseller
Dunning. The main character, Cliff Janeway, is an
ex-cop turned seller of rare books. On the trail of
a rumored handcrafted book by a legendary genius
bookmaker, each puzzling discovery links the
mysterious book to a series of murders. Lots of fun
literary allusions keep this novel entertaining and
challenging.

Why does it cost so much

to fix my TV & VCR?

Because many service shops don't re-
pair -. they replace. It doesn't require
much training or skill and it generates
lots of money; after all it's easier to re-
place the entire circuit board than to
locate the faulty part.
At Bob's, you won't pay $200 for
an entire circuit board when a single
component is bad. You might pay $30
to $60 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 BOB'S TV VCR

EM PAGE 16 0 APRIL 11, 1996 M THE ISLANDER BYSTANDER


Who's where?
In the constant shuffle of bands and musicians
from one club to another on and around Anna Maria
Island, sometimes we have an opportunity to try some-
thing new.
Most recently, I stopped at Down the Hatch, the
bayfront restaurant on the causeway to Bradenton, for
what was recommended to be an excellent oyster
Rockefeller. Indeed, the oysters were delicious. Gar-
licky. Plump and fresh. Perfect.
We were lured out the back door by the waft of
zydeco music from the deck. We discovered the
Gumbo Boogie Band, a group of four musicians mak-
ing some great sounds. Steve Page plays stand-up bass
and does vocals, Ryan Langley plays accordion, key-
board and trumpet, Rich Young plays mandolin and
fiddle and does some vocals, and Chaz Trippey wraps
up the group with drums and percussion.
After learning of their backgrounds, I'm not sur-
prised they sounded so good.
Page, the band's founder, has recorded and toured
internationally. Young worked with Ricky Skaggs,
Charlie Daniels and the Marshall Tucker Band.
Trippey's credentials include a seven-year gig with the
Greg Allman Band including three gold albums. Lan-
gley is distinguished as one of the youngest musicians
ever solicited by Disney but he decided against the stint
with Mickey Mouse.
The band's theme, "let the good times roll,"
doesn't fully reflect their eclectic blend of boogie-
woogie, rock-a-billy, classic rock, swing, country,
blues and bluegrass. They're strongly "seasoned," as


Page says, by the music of New Orleans including
Mardi Gras and Cajun influences.
Page operates the "Blues Cruises" which run with
utmost irregularity, mostly in the spring and fall,
aboard the Miss Cortez fleet We'll be looking forward
to a sunset cruise with the Gumbo Boogie Band.
Meantime, you can catch them on the deck on Fri-
day nights from 7 to 10 p.m. at the Hatch.
Around town, local Island guys, some of them for-
merly with the Hammerheads, have formed a group
called NGB's Freeport that will appear at D.Coy Ducks
this weekend. Expect some Allman Brothers tunes
mixed in with the blues and shuffle.
King Louie is back at the Dry Dock Inn this week-
end and they're celebrating their fourth birthday Sun-
day, April 21. Sounds like one of their great cook-outs
to me.
At the Anchor Inn, Razin Cane will rock the week-
end out and Lifeguard is booked in every Wednesday
for what Anchor owner Bob Tingler calls "Sink or
Swim." You pay $10 to drink unlimited quantities of
well drinks and domestic beers from 9 p.m. to mid-
night.
Key West Willy's offers up their Acoustic Nerve
(sounds interesting) on Friday and Saturday nights with
Rockin' Romy on Thursday and no cover charge not
ever.
To wrap up the rock scene, Rumple Fish, another
new name in the Island's own version of musical
chairs, is at Turtles Bar & Grill for the weekend.
You'll find a great alternative to rock and roll at
Eddie B's in Anna Maria. Fritzi (no last name?) enter-
tains at the piano bar with a sophisticated song list that
runs from Carole King to Broadway show tunes. She's
a relatively new addition to Anna Maria, leaving be-
hind a popular audience on Boca Grande to comple-
ment our winter season. Getting to know her has been
fun and hopefully, she'll stay on.
(See Eddie, I managed to do the whole stir-thing
without referring to you once as Cafe Robar.)


The Gumbo Boogie Band
Something' to do
This weekend is the 8th Annual Island Fest, a big
event sponsored by the Longboat Key Chamber of
Commerce with the help of business sponsors at the
Holiday Inn on Longboat Key.
Besides great day-long entertainment including
Democracy, Rick "the Trickster" Band, Terry Lynn
and the Coyote Band and Open Minds, you'll discover
gourmet delights from many area restaurants.
Also included are juried arts and crafts for sale and
activities for children. It all happens Sunday, April 14,
from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m.
There's a free shuttle from various parking areas
on the Key so watch for the first sign you see, park and
ride to the event. There's a $2 admission fee.
Also happening this weekend, a Gypsy Artist's
Market on Saturday April 13, from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m., at
the Island Shopping Center in Holmes Beach. The
Artists Guild Gallery will offer discounts on local art-
ists' works plus frames, supplies and assorted prints.
They'll have a strolling singer roaming about the shop-
ping center to entertain even the hardware customers
and a gypsy tea room complete with fortune tellers at
the gallery.
Please don't complain there's nothing to do on
Anna Maria. At least not this week.

Colin E. Fairweather, 18, of Anna Maria, was
arrested by Holmes Beach police April 3 and
charged with retail theft, battery and resisting a mer-
chant in connection with a shoplifting incident at the
Sterling Anvil, 5341 Gulf Drive, Holmes Beach.
Fairweather had been in the store twice earlier
in the day.
According to the police report, store owner
Roxanne Reid observed Fairweather with two chains
in his hands when he "dropped" everything includ-
ing his wallet and some change. She confronted
Fairweather after observing him conceal a silver
bracelet in his wallet. Reid told Fairweather she was
calling police, and he pushed her out the door of the
shop. She fell down a step to the parking area and hit

and materials. They eventually came to an agreement, and
the chair was bought back by the complainants who were
reimbursed by their landlord.
March 29, suspicious, 64th Street and Gulf Drive.
The officer observed a vehicle with an inoperative
headlight pull out of White Avenue and travel south on
Palm Drive. Due to the late hour and the presence of
juveniles in the vehicle, the officer stopped it. The ju-
veniles said they came to walk on the beach. The of-
ficer contacted the parents who said the juveniles were
not supposed to be out that late and responded to take
them home. The driver was issued a citation for the
inoperative headlight.
March 30, suspicious, 3232 East Bay Drive, Sub-
way. The officer on patrol observed the lights off and
the store closed two hours earlier than usual. He con-
tacted the manager who responded and found a note
from the employee who said he quit. The keys and the
money were left in the store.

Three witnesses saw the assault on Reid, ran
after Fairweather, caught him at the Circle K at 5353
Gulf Drive and held him for police. They said they
observed Fairweather threw some items aside while
he was running.
Fairweather was accompanied by Lauren
Belcher of Bradenton, no age given, to the store but
according to Lt. Dale Stephenson, she left moments
before the shoplifting occurred and was not charged.
Belcher, her car and purse were checked but police
were unable to find any bracelets.
The jewelry was not recovered. Reid said a second
bracelet she last saw in Fairweather's possession is also
missing. The bracelets were valued at $25 and $15.

said the subject suffers from depression and is an alco-
holic and might harm herself. On arrival, the officer
found the subject had been drinking and had access to
medication. The subject said she needed to go to the
hospital. The officer called the hospital where she was
previously admitted and was told she could be volun-

Don't be duped by

tire repair story
Business owners are being warned about a man who
has duped several employees of Island businesses into
giving him money to have his tires repaired. The man is
described as about six-feet tall, 35 to 40 years old, un-
shaven, with sandy to light brown hair and wearing jeans
and a T-shirt or flannel shirt.
Greg Vogel, a bartender at the Dry Dock Inn,
alerted the newspaper to the scam.
According to police reports, the man enters businesses
and asks employees for small amounts of money, from
$4.27 to $6.47, to repair a tire. He promises to return af-
ter the repair is finished and repay the Samaritan.
His appearance has also been reported at Shells and
several other stores in the Anna Maria Island Centre,
D. Coy Ducks, the Island Inn in Bradenton Beach and
Beach-Style Boutique in Anna Maria.
Holmes Beach Police Det. Sgt. Nancy Rogers said
the man is not committing a crime, because it's not il-
legal to ask people for money and there is no threat or
intimidation involved.
Ride along with the
Holmes Beach Police
Lt. Dale Stephenson of the Holmes Beach Police
Department announced Friday that the department will
institute a citizens' ride along program.
"Residents can fill out the application at the police
station," Stephenson explained. "They must provide
their name, birth date and driver's license number so
we can do a background check."
Applicants will be required to sign a covenant not
to sue the city. Stephenson stressed that the purpose of
the new policy is for education of the city's residents.
"The chief, the mayor and I felt it would be a good
learning experience for residents to get to know what
the officer in the street does every day."

Reef Reacher investigation to Tampa


By Bob Ardren
Outdoor Perspectives
Coast Guard Cortez is transferring investigation of
alleged safety violations by the charter boat ReefReacher
to its Tampa Marine Safety Office, according to Coast
Guard sources. Petty Officer Bucklin told The Islander
Bystander he believes the case is going to Tampa, but
officials there say it has not been received as yet.
Based on a series of written complaints about the
boat and its operation, the Coast Guard will formally
investigate and issue penalties, if justified.

Give the lady a present
No single person is more responsible for today's
environmental movement in Florida than Marjory
Stoneman Douglas. She turned 106 last Sunday.
Arriving in Florida in 1915 to live in a village of
fewer than 5,000 a village destined to become the
city of Miami Douglas still lives in the same Coco-
nut Grove cottage she acquired in 1925.
In 1947, Douglas' published her most famous
book, The Everglades: River of Grass, drawing na-
tional attention to the Everglades. Historians tie that
book directly to the establishment of the 1.5 million
acre Everglades National Park later that same year.
Now also the only International Biosphere Reserve
and World Heritage Site in our hemisphere, the Ever-
glades remains the focal point of environmental pres-
ervation and restoration efforts in Florida. Despite re-
cent reports of huge sums of money being committed
to help the restoration effort, the final outcome of all
such efforts is still very uncertain.
Government money has a way of coming and go-
ing, and frankly, nobody is really certain yet just what
kinds of things will permanently help the park.
As the end of the Everglades dry season is ap-
proaching, it's a good time to visit the park for a vari-
ety of reasons. Bugs are almost non existent and the
wildlife is concentrated around the water holes and
sloughs, so viewing is easy.
In a trip of my own to the park last week com-
memorating a birthday, I saw Florida gar stacked like
firewood in ponds and ditches as they awaited the ar-
rival of the rainy season. Alligators were everywhere
around the water holes, feasting on trapped bass even
as we watched and it was easy to see hundreds of wood
storks in an hour's time.
At no other time of the year is Everglades Park so

Boat rides into the park are available out of Ever-
glades City, tram rides and hiking are available at the
Shark River Valley entrance off the Tamiami Trail, and
west of Homestead is the long road to Flamingo with
lots of opportunities for sightseeing along the way. We

Womens' cruise draws raves
Twenty-six female sailors took the opportunity to
"sail their own boats" recently from the Sarasota Sail-
ing Squadron north to the Mar Vista on Longboat Key.
The overnight trip supplied plenty of experiences, I
hear, and may mark the beginning of a tradition.
Some eight boats actually took part in the event
marked by one grounding ("Hey," as one old salt says,
"if you don't go aground, you're probably not sailing
very much"), and a general enthusiasm for the oppor-
tunity to experience "we-can-do-it-if-we-have-to."
Tip of the hat to the squadron for organizing the
cruise.

Catfish kill solved?
If you spend any time at the water's edge, you've
probably noticed the large number of dead sea catfish
washing ashore in recent months. It's all part of a mys-
terious kill that began in Tampa Bay last fall and has
spread down the coast.
Only sea catfish seem to be hit by this latest mystery.
Research scientists at the Florida Marine Research
Institute in St. Petersburg say they may have an answer.
Careful examination of tissue samples found the dead
fish contain a parasitic amoeba in their liver, spleen,
kidneys and sometimes their gills.
It can't be determined for certain if the amoeba is the
cause of death it's possible that the catfish were weak-
ened by the parasite and then died of another disease.
The most popular theory as to the cause of the para-
site is the heavy summer rains last year. A decrease in
salinity may have be a factor, as might be the overload-
ing of sewage treatment plants and the release of signifi-
cant quantities of untreated sewage into Tampa Bay.
The City of St. Petersburg is somehow still getting
away with that nasty little surprise every summer.
The sewage discharge could have started a chain
reaction that's still going on.
And then of course there's the matter of red tide.
It too could be a contributing factor. We've certainly
had plenty of red tide over the past year, and there's

Golden Crab plan on hold
Hottest new seafood item in our area is the golden
crab. A deep water creature, the crab is harvested whole
with significant meat in both the body and long legs.
I recently saw an all-you-can-eat special on the
crab being offered for $12.95 by a Goodland restaurant.
There is concern that being a deep water creature,
the crab very likely reproduces slowly and thus won't
be able to withstand heavy fishing pressure. That got
the attention of the Gulf of Mexico Fishery Manage-
ment Council, but apparently not a lot of attention.
The council voted recently to defer further action
on management of the fishery until more information
is available. That decision was based in large part on
an informal report that neither the short- nor long-term
market outlook is favorable for the golden crab indus-
try because of market competition by Russian and Ca-
nadian snow crab production.
So maybe you ought to do what I didn't do. That
is, take advantage of the crab being here now and try
them. They may not be around long.
See you next week.

White bait signal spring is finally here


By Capt Mike Heistand
Fishers look for a special harbinger of spring and
summer fishing white bait and the tasty little
fish are starting to appear in local waters, a good sign
that increased snook and redfish action is soon to
follow. Mackerel and pompano fishing is starting to
pick up in the passes, grouper reports are still excel-
lent offshore and the kingfish run appears to have
started in the Gulf.
Karen at the Rod and Reel Pier said pier fishers
were catching bluefish, pompano, flounder, mackerel,
snook and redfish.
Ken at the Anna Maria City Pier said dock an-
glers have been catching a lot of sheepshead, a few
pompano and some mackerel and jacks.
Jamie at Miss Cortez Fishing Fleet said the four-
hour trips averaged 120 head of Key West grunts and
sand perch. The six-hour trips averaged 175 head of
black sea bass, vermilion snapper and Key West grunts.
The nine-hour trips averaged 30 head of mangrove
snapper and grouper.
Chris at Galati Yacht Basin said kingfish are start-
ing to show up about seven miles from shore. Mackerel
are thick near Egmont Key and grouper fishing is ex-
cellent in about 80 to 90 feet of water.
Capt. Rick Gross said it's been snook, snook and
more snook for him last week, some tipping the scales
at better than 15 pounds.
Capt. Mark Bradow said snook are the word for
him, too, with a few keepers here andthere. Capt. Mark


reminds us all that linesider action is at its best between
now and May.
On my boat Magic we've been finding sheeps-
head to still be around. Permit are starting to show
up, and there are lots and lots of mangrove snapper
on the seagrass flats. White bait is starting to show
up, and there is an accompanying increase in snook

and redfish action.
Capt. Tom Chaya said redfish and snook are his
best bets. He's finding white bait starting to show
up, too.
Bill at Island Discount Tackle said snook and reds
are starting to be caught by wade fishers. Mackerel are
plentiful near the piers and passes, and snapper fishing
is starting to really pick up. Bill predicts cobia and the
kingfish run should really kick in any time now.
Good luck and good fishing.
