Second riot means more weekend police


By Paul Roat
Uniforms rather than bathing attire will be in vogue
along the coast this weekend as police step up patrols
in the wake of two disturbances at local beaches.
Sunday afternoon's brawl at the Palma Sola Cause-
way left five men injured and involved about 30. Ap-
parently Sunday's fight erupted after one man thought


Resident

questions 'blight

on commercial

property'
By Cynthia Finn
Islander Reporter
A 15-year Anna Maria City resident and property
owner hoping to make "a small investment of about
half a million dollars" in a business here is concerned
that city regulations "are putting a blight on commer-
cial properties."
Peggy Barron lives on Spring Avenue and owns
other property on Alamanda Avenue. A native of En-
gland, Barron ran a nursing home there and served for
11 years as a member of the Kerrier District Council.
She has been hoping to purchase the Beaver Products
location at 427 Pine Ave. to open a holistic healing cen-
ter. Now she's not sure about the move, based in part on
what she sees as fluctuating policies due to the turnover
in city building officials over the last few years.
Barron asked to address Chairman Tom Turner at
the end of the April 22 planning and zoning board
meeting. She said she didn't "mean to be disrespectful"
to Turner or to Mayor Chuck Shumard, "a dear friend,"
who was in the audience. Also attending were city
Commissioners George McKay and Robert McElheny.
Speaking calmly, Barron referred to her desired
business venture, saying she wished she could get "as-
surances in writing" that wouldn't change with new
regulations and new officials.
"And I know other investors who also would like
you to respond," she said.
"I have been associated with the Island since
1981," Barron said. "I am concerned now about the
inconsistencies that are showing in Anna Maria City."
She talked about "fairy tale regulations," the "new
book" of codes passed in February and Phil Charnock,
the city's building official since last July, the fourth in
as many years.
"I understand that Mr. Charnock is excellent as a
building inspector," said Barron. "But before I invest
my money here, is there any assurance if Mr.
Charnock should move on to greener pastures that
a new building inspector wouldn't change the rules?"
Turner said he didn't know what Barron intended to
do at the Beaver Products property. He suggested that she
might enter into a contingent contract and then speak with
Charnock who "could better advise you than I."
Barron said, "I am puzzled and confused by the
variances that are allowed and those that have been so
stringently denied over the years."
Then she asked one last question. "Does it really
depend in Anna Maria City on what you want to do?"
Board member Roland Dreier spoke up.
"Keep in mind," he said, "the new code amendments
create order out of chaos. It was a mess before that."
Contacted after the meeting, Barron said she
doesn't "want to do anybody a disservice" who serves
the city in any official capacity.
She said she wants her business in Anna Maria
because of its ambiance. But she is concerned about
"the variations in code application."
"What confidence does all this give a small inves-
tor?" Barron asked.
"In my opinion," she said, "they're putting a blight
on commercial properties in this city. This is the way
it appears."


another threw something at his car. Before it was all
over, five men were slashed, two seriously, and Joe
Gigliotti of Bradenton was hospitalized.

-Ambulance survey: NO!


By Pat Copeland
Islander Reporter
Results of the Islander Bystander's survey on the
proposed changes in the county's ambulance service
show Islanders overwhelmingly opposed to the pro-
posal. They also want other methods of providing
emergency medical service investigated.
In the plan, called peak demand staffing, the
county's 12 ambulances would be on the road during
times when there are more calls. During slack times the
number of ambulances would be reduced and the re-
maining ambulances would be moved to more central
locations.
At a recent Holmes Beach City Council meeting,
Manatee County Administrator Ernie Padgett an-
nounced the county will defer any changes for two
years while studying options to improve service. He
also promised the public will be involved in the pro-
cess.
Survey questions and responses are as follows:
1. I am opposed to the proposed changes in our
emergency medical services by the Manatee County
Public Safety Director 63
2. I am also against any change that will move
ambulances off the Island for any reason other than to
take someone to the hospital 62
3. I believe other methods should be investigated
before any change in EMS service is made 35
4. I approve of the peak demand staffing plan as


proposed 4.
Two respondents checked off all four numbers
while another marked number 1 only. Twenty-eight re-
spondents marked numbers 1 and 2 while questions
number 1 to 3 were marked on 34 surveys.

Expert extolls city manager government


By Pat Copeland
Islander Reporter
Pete Knowles, a retired city manager, spoke to the
Holmes Beach Charter Commission last week on the
city manager form of government, an option being
considered by the commission.
Knowles is also a Florida Range Rider represent-
ing state and international city/county management
associations. He was a city manager for 36 years and
has been a Range Rider for 11 years.
"The Ranger Rider program started in 1974," he
explained. "It was an attempt to utilize the services of
retired city mangers who had a certain amount of re-
spect and recognition from their peers. There are 64 of
us in the United States. We travel around and advise
councils and city managers and help communities to
develop that form of government and find a city man-


ager. We're not consultants; we're advisors."
Of 8,000 communities in the United States, 48
percent have the city manager form of government, he
said. In Florida, there are 231 out of 399 communities,
or 60 percent. City managers are available for any size
city and their average tenure in Florida is four and one-
half years.
"We'll help you find a professional manager," he
said. "You tell us what you want and we'll help you
develop a manager profile and do a search. We urge
that the selection be done on the basis of professional
qualifications. We provide this service free of charge
with the idea of helping to establish good government"
Knowles said that in the city manager form of gov-
ernment authority and control is in the hands of the
elected officials. He suggested they first develop a vi-
sion of their community, then develop goals and objec-

Citizen 'troubled' by Anna


Maria commissioner's action


By Cynthia Finn
Islander Reporter
Mary Westerman has had more to say about her
recent public encounters with Anna Maria City Com-
missioner Elaine Burkly. She made her remarks in an
April 22 letter of complaint to Mayor Chuck Shumard.
Westerman and her husband David, of Holmes
Beach, appeared twice before the city commission in
April with a variance petition for a pool at the Anna
Maria home they have purchased.
Commissioners first turned down the variance then
reconsidered a week later and gave it a thumbs up.
Burkly was vocal in her opposition both times.
Westerman was also vocal in challenging Burkly's
stand. She accused the commissioner of letting per-
sonal feelings affect her judgment.
After one of the meetings was adjourned, Burkly
made remarks in the commission chambers to the ef-
fect that money "impacted the vote."
Westerman says in her letter she is "particularly
offended" by the "statement made by Commissioner
Burkly that money can buy anything in Anna Maria.
We deserve a public apology."
Westerman also says she is "troubled" by Burkly's


Writers group to hold
workshop
The Gulf Coast Writers will meet at the Island
Library, 5701 Marina Dr., Holmes Beach, on Mon-
day, May 6, at 10:15 a.m. for a workshop session.
Participants are asked to bring original prose
and poetry to read. Visitors are welcome.


"conduct."
"It is quite apparent," writes Westerman, "that
Commissioner Burkly is incapable of separating her
personal tastes from the demands of her job or of re-
solving her conflicts with members of various boards.
"Her inability to do so is affecting and impairing
her judgment. Commissioner Burkly has an obligation
to the citizens of Anna Maria to resolve these differ-
ences and conduct herself in a professional, objective
and unbiased manner, or resign from the commission."
Westerman told The Islander Bystander April 28
that "the real reason" she wrote the letter stemmed from
a comment made by Burkly at the first commission
meeting on the variance.
According to Westerman, "Commissioner Burkly
said that 'the intent of the code is not to allow anything
and that is my personal opinion.'
"That leads me to believe," said Westerman, "that
she cannot be objective about any variance."
Shumard also received a letter from resident Diane
Canniff who regularly attends city meetings. Canniff's
letter was delivered by hand to Shumard at his home
before the April 23 commission session.
Titled "Paraphrasing daily readings during the past
week," the letter begins: "Nothing constructive results
from meeting anger with anger; nobody wins the battle
in which control is lost."
Canniff discusses "quiet poise," "sarcasm,"
"scorn" and "harmony," among other items, as those
topics relate to public meetings.
She concludes, "So that our actions and our lives
reflect the beauty of this place, might we keep these
thoughts in mind and heart as we deal with the issues
of living together on this small island?"


tives and establish policies to implement them.
"The elected officials are the ones responsible for
the direction and actions of the city manager," he said.
"If he's not carrying out the goals and objectives, fire
him. You can't do that with a mayor."
He recommended a yearly evaluation of a city
manager and offering the manager an agreement rather
than a contract to eliminate problems if he is fired.
"People are looking for expertise and guidance in
local government that has become much more complex
than it was 25 years ago," he noted.

City manager versus elected
executive
Knowles gave officials a handout that compared
the city manager form of government to the mayor/
council form.
A manager with education, training, experience
and expertise is selected by elected representatives. A
mayor is elected by the voters with no required educa-
tion, training, experience or expertise.
A manager serves at the pleasure of the elected
council. A mayor serves his term and is not responsible
to council.
In a city manager government, authority rests
with the elected council that sets polices and objectives,
controls the manager and can remove the manager at
any time.In a mayor/council form, the authority is di-
vided between the elected council and mayor who set
policies and objectives. The council does not control
the mayor and cannot remove him from office.
A manager is non-partisan and recommends on
merits. A mayor can be partisan and may act on politi-
cal considerations.
A manager prepares the budget from a profes-
sional appraisal of needs and resources within the com-
munity and needs are addressed objectively. An elected
executive prepares the budget with political consider-
ations. Needs may be considered political trade-offs
with council members.
A manager has a code of ethics enforced by the
International City/County Management Association.
The mayor has no professional code of ethics and no
ethical enforcement from his peers. However, both are
subject to public ethics laws.

Questions from commissioners
and audience
Q: What level of expertise would we need in a
manager for this city?
A: It's what you want, but we'll advise you. We
strongly recommend a degree in public or business
administration and at least five years experience as a
manger or assistant.
Q: What's the difference between the two degrees?
A: In public administration there are more govern-
ment courses which is beneficial in trying to converse
with state officials.
Q: What about having a master's degree?
A: The student takes advanced courses in budget
and finance and is out working in the field.
Q: Is it better to have a graduate of a Florida uni-
versity who knows about the state's interpretation of
laws?
A: The laws of the states are very similar, and it is
not a handicap to come from another state. I would not
recommend a Florida university graduate because
Florida does not have leading institutions in govern-
ment studies.
Q: What's the salary range for a manager?
A: It depends on various factors including the cost
of living and the ability to attract a good manager. The
range is about $45,000 to $51,000 with a pension and
health plan as additional expenses.
Q: Five individuals are responsible for watching
over the activities of one individual. Won't a lot be
overlooked if one assumes another is watching?
A: It's the other way around. You have more over-
sight. Everything is scrutinized by five individuals and
the manager answers to five.
Q: How do we rationalize the expense of hiring a
city manager?
A: Supporters say a good manager will save his
salary every year and from my experience, that's not
hard to do.
Commissioners agreed to ponder what they had
learned over the next week and discuss the information
at their May 2 meeting.

It was discussed, turned into a maze of lengthy le-
gal pages and died in '92. In '95 it was discussed again,
revised into three pages, rediscussed and still it died
without ever getting to a vote.
It's 1996 now, there's a new city commission and
the matter's back: an ordinance that would provide for
the issuing of temporary use permits for special events
in the city of Anna Maria.
"There just didn't seem to be an interest on the part
of the public," Vice Mayor Doug Wolfe said of the
law's prior fate at the April 23 commission meeting.
But the Manatee County Sheriffs Office deputies
who man the city "have said again that it would be a
good idea," said Wolfe. "So we bring it back to a new
commission."
July Fourth fireworks and major events at the Anna
Maria Island Community Center were among activities
discussed last year that might qualify for temporary
permitting. The process would help the deputies and
the city's public works department be aware in advance
of any unusual parking and sanitation conditions.
The ordinance last proposed included but was not
limited to such activities as sidewalk, rummage and ga-
rage sales, beach fests and beach weddings, parades,
plant sales, art shows, fairs "and all other similar types
of uses of a temporary nature."
Wolfe asked commissioners to review and mark up
the '95 proposal and suggested a roundtable discussion


at a special meeting in the near future.
"I think it would be a good idea to get back to it
once more," he said.
In other business, commissioners unanimously
approved Mayor Chuck Shumard's recommendation to
name retired teacher Joseph Vona to a vacancy on the
code enforcement board.
Ray Dielman, a retired physicist, was appointed by
a 4-to-1 vote to a seat on the planning and zoning
board. He replaces Mike Bartles who resigned due to
his work schedule. Commissioner Elaine Burkly was
opposed, saying the city should involve more and dif-
ferent citizens on boards and committees. Dielman's
appointment now creates a vacancy on the newly
formed Capital Improvements Committee.
Another planning board member, Melody Kramer,
submitted her resignation April 23, citing family com-
mitments. Those vacancies will be filled "at a later
date," said Shumard.
Shumard also discussed his recent attendance at a red
tide consortium on Longboat Key. With involvement of
people from Naples to north of Tampa Bay, Shumard said
the next step will be the forming of a board of directors
with a goal of funding research and coordinating efforts.
He said there appears to be seed money from the
private sector, possibly up to $300,000, and the group
is not asking the city to do anything at this point.
"This is the first year I remember red tide in cold
water," Shumard commented. "Tourism and marine
life are being affected."

Islander gets permit for turtle season


By Cynthia Finn
Islander Reporter
Suzi Fox of Anna Maria received word from the
state last week her application to be the principal
permit holder for the Anna Maria Island Turtle Watch
has been approved.
The sea turtle nesting and hatching season runs
from May 1 through October. Only those authorized by
the Florida Department of Environmental Protection
(DEP) are allowed to tamper in any way with the sev-
eral hundred nests that typically are laid on our Island
beaches by the endangered species each season. Each
nest holds an average of more than 100 eggs.
Fox has been involved in the local turtle monitor-
ing organization for four years. She recently stepped
forward to fill the void created when the state denied
the renewal of the permit held for five years by Anna
Maria Mayor Chuck Shumard.
Shumard's persistent relocation of nests to
beachfront hatcheries caged areas in the dunes far-
ther from Gulf waters than where the nests were laid -
was among the reasons cited by the state in denying his
permit
Fox has vowed to follow all DEP guidelines for


monitoring and surveying turtle nests. Her chief assis-
tant will be John Defazio. Anyone spotting a turtle, a
crawl an attempt to lay a nest evidenced by tracks
in the sand or a nest is encouraged to contact Fox at
778-5638 or Defazio at 778-0056.
Fox said Turtle Watch volunteers will begin daily
early-morning walks of our beaches looking for turtle
activity on May 13.
"We're so excited about the number of volunteers
who have signed up," Fox said after an April 24 orga-
nizational meeting.
She said approximately 50 people have come for-
ward so far, including about 20 previous volunteers.
Last season about 65 Islanders were involved in the
Turtle Watch effort. Fox and Shumard had expressed
concern that a lot of volunteers might drop out due to
the DEP's denial of Shumard's permit and what
Shumard has called "the heartaches" of lost nests and
tiny hatchlings last year.
Fox remains in touch with Shumard "who is re-
sponsible for giving me a love of turtles," she says.
They first met at a middle-of-the-night nest spotting.
Longtime Turtle Watch volunteer and former di-
rector Ed Callen was in attendance at the April 24


meeting.
"We really appreciated his being there," Fox said.
"He answered a lot of questions and offered all of us
his many years of experience."
As principal permit holder, Fox will oversee 24
others who will be added to her permit. They alone will
be allowed to stake and
mark nests or in any other
way touch the nests and
eggs, which have about a
60-day incubation period.
All other volunteers will as-
sist in locating and survey-
ing nests.
"The season's upon us
and we're almost ready to
go," said Fox. Suzi Fox
She was notified of her
approval by the state over the phone. An additional
condition of the permit a request by DEP for moni-
toring of a bayfront stretch in Anna Maria where
pumped sand from Lake LaVista is placed delayed
the final signatures in Tallahassee.
"But the papers should be in hand any day," Fox said.


Endangered green turtle found to have tumors


By Joy Courtney
Islander reporter
We would go to war if an enemy
contaminated our food source. Sea
turtles don't have armies so they are
dying in epidemic proportions and dying
young.
Sponge-like tumors, which can
grow to the size of a huge fist singly and
in multiple clusters, are attacking the
soft internal and external tissues of the
endangered green sea turtle and logger-
head. Pesticides and pollutants carried
into our oceans, the Gulf of Mexico,


bays and canals in water run off are be-
lieved to be the cause of the tumors
called fibropapillomas, according to re-
searchers.
Externally the tumors favor the soft
tissues around the eyes, flippers, neck
and hind end of the turtle. The big bulge
of the cysts can close the eyes or ob-
struct sight, prohibiting or inhibiting the
sea turtle's ability to find food and tu-
mor-laden flippers restrict the turtle's
ability to maneuver in the search. Inter-
nally the tumors crowd and smother the
function of vital internal organs, espe-

Turtle trauma
Chuck Shumard, the former director of the Anna Maria Turtle Watch, keeps a
stranded green sea turtle named Ann warm until researchers from the
Clearwater Marine Aquarium arrive. The juvenile turtle was found stranded in a
canal on 71st Street in Holmes Beach suffering from fibropapillomas, an often
fatal tumor-causing disease affecting the endangered green sea turtle in epi-
demic proportions.


cially the intestines.
And, no matter where the tumors are
attached, they suck up blood and nutrients
needed for survival, leaving the reptile
susceptible to secondary and also poten-
tially fatal illnesses such as pneumonia.
In the cold water of January, at low
tide in the canal behind their home on
71st Street in Holmes Beach, residents
discovered a tumor-laden and lethargic
green sea turtle. "Ann's" plight, as it
was christened by the researchers at the
Clearwater Marine Aquarium, the only
facility on Florida's West Coast which
treats these animals, brought the ravages
of the fibropapillomas epidemic into the
heart of Anna Maria Island.
Though hatched from nests pre-
dominately laid on the Atlantic coast,
green sea turtles, named after the green-
ish fat of the body, spend their juvenile
years in search of and eating seagrass
found in beds close to shore and in all
the warm waters surrounding Florida's
coasts. After maturity, the green turtle
spends its life at sea, moving on to other
food sources, with only the female com-
ing on shore to lay eggs.
Near-shore seagrasses, including
those found in our area, filter pesticides
and pollutants as nature's first line of
defense against water pollution. Scien-
tists believe that because juvenile green


sea turtles feed on corrupted seagrass,
they are the victims of direct contamina-
tion which may cause fibropapillomas.
The theory is further substantiated by
the eating habits of the disease's second
victim the loggerhead turtle.
Loggerheads feed on nature's sec-
ond line of defense against pollution -
shellfish. Because shellfish are a sec-
ondary filter, fewer loggerheads are af-
fected compared to the green sea turtle.
Other species with different dietary
needs have not been affected, and con-
ditions such as the unusually cold
weather and water Florida experienced
this winter are thought to only have ex-
acerbated the condition of already sick
animals, sources said.
Researchers have been studying
fibropapillomas for 50 years, but it has
gotten alarmingly worse in the last 10
years, said Glenn Harman, director of
the sea turtle program at Clearwater
Marine Aquarium. The time frame par-
allels the development of Florida's
coasts another clue in the "Case of
the Potential Killer."
Chuck Shumard, the former director
of the Anna Maria Island Turtle Watch,
was called to the home of Ann's rescuers.

turtle and about two to three years old," said Shumard. "It
barely had enough strength to lift its head out of the wa-
ter. It had tumors on its flippers and especially around the
eyes. I don't know how it could see. All we could do was
keep it warm and able to breathe until the people from
Clearwater Marine Aquarium came to pick it up."
The aquarium, which runs on private donations and
entrance admissions, has handled an unprecedented 32
strandings of green sea turtles so far this year. A few
of the turtles arrived dead but out of the total number
admitted, 11 have been saved. Some of the turtles will
be at the aquarium for as long as two years before they
are well enough to be released and no longer at the sus-
ceptible juvenile stage of development, said Harman.
Tumors are surgically removed depending on lo-
cation and their effect on the turtle's ability to function
naturally. Most tumors dissolve over a period of time
after the reptiles eat a sustained "clean" diet, said
Harman. What is most difficult, he said, is to keep a
turtle, also suffering from secondary care problems
such as malnutrition and pneumonia, alive long enough
to possibly recover from the tumors.
"Fortunately, the strandings have started to taper off,"
said Harman, "but unfortunately Ann died. (The sex of the
turtle can only be determined during a necropsy.) It was
very emaciated and had symptoms of pneumonia. We had
IVs going but it never started eating."

Good luck for the turtles
Beachgoers will have something to watch out for
besides shells, dolphins and birds later this month: trac-
tor-like tracks of female loggerhead sea turtles will start
appearing on the Island's beaches in May.
Mother turtles lumber out of the surf from May to
October to dig nests in the sand and lay their eggs.
Except for their birth and the trips to shore to lay eggs,
it is the only time female turtles venture from the wa-
ter. Males, by the way, only touch land as hatchlings
scampering into the surf.
This will be the first year the Island's turtles will
be for the most part left on their own in more than a
decade. Turtle Watch volunteers have been instructed
to mark the nests but not to disturb the eggs this year,
the result of additional scientific data collected by the
Florida Department of Environmental Protection.
Biologists believe that sea turtles have different
requirements in terms of sand grains, compaction,
moisture content and egg temperature. Although Turtle
Watch volunteers have had tremendous success in the
past with numbers of hatchlings released, biologists
fear that the handling of the eggs may produce fewer
adult turtles.
The DEP decision to leave endangered sea turtle
nests alone caused a rift between the former director of
Anna Maria's volunteer turtle watchers, Chuck
Shumard, and state officials. Shumard resigned in pro-
test earlier this year in the wake of the state revoking
his permit.
State officials rescinded his permit due to the con-
tinued collection and removal of nests to two hatcher-
ies "turtle condominiums" in Anna Maria and
Bradenton Beach.
Shumard and some of his volunteer/supporters
have now bowed out of the program in protest, appar-
ently only willing to help the turtles if they can do it
"my way."
Suzi Fox, the new holder of the Anna Maria Island
turtle permit, says she will follow DEP guidelines and
mark the nests not move them.
If the program can raise funds for nest covers, the
chances of a successful season will be greatly enhanced.
We applaud Shumard's efforts over the years. He
and his crew of volunteers lost a lot of sleep and went
through a lot of effort to release a lot of turtles.
But we have to agree with the biologists there
is just too much we don't know about sea turtles to
permit humans to continue handling the eggs or mov-
ing the nests without causing potentially disastrous
results to this already endangered species.
The news of a release at the hatchery was always
"telegraphed" to many folks. Yes, we'll miss the re-

leases as they were observed by hundreds of visitors
and residents, young and old.
Yes, some nests that could have been moved will be
destroyed by high tides and more unfortunately, humans.
Yes, that is a tragic thing to have to experience.
But more important is having turtles hatch that will
grow to maturity, mate and again come to the Island to


lay eggs.
With one out of 1,000 odds already against turtles, we
have to trust the current guidelines will result in stronger
turtles able to make the trip from hatchlings to adults.
We also trust the volunteers will come back to the
program as the purpose remains the same to save the
endangered loggerheads.


Counting turtle losses
No one has mentioned that one of the great losses
of the former Anna Maria Island Turtle Watch program
will be the opportunity to educate hundreds of adults
and children.
Explanations of the life cycle, species endanger-
ment, and a visual experience of a turtle release have
all contributed to making our turtle program success-
ful and gave the volunteers a sense of completion. Even
the early morning beach-walkers who witnessed turtle
eggs being removed from their precarious position to
be nurtured in the hatchery were enthusiastic and a little
awed by the experience.
It was a mind-boggling experience for our grand-
children to contemplate that some day they might bring
their children to the Island and see the children of one
of the "Tessa Turtles" they saw released into the gulf.
There is a sense of life's continuity in this event as well
as a great renewal of spirit.
The release program was truly a unique Island hap-
pening. Word got around very quickly when one was be-
ing held, and much interest was generated among resi-
dents and visitors. We encouraged neighbors, friends and
visitors from England and Germany to take advantage of
this program and all were delighted with it.
Chuck Shumard, the former director of the pro-
gram, did a memorable job of explaining the history,
care and life style of the loggerheads that come to our
shores and answered questions from the crowd. Volun-
teers roped off a viewing area for the release and cheers
emanated from the crowd (up to 150 some nights)
when the last little turtle swam off in the waves. Some
people were moved by this experience, some just en-
joyed it, but all came away feeling a little better about
our world and certainly more informed.


Now that this joyful sharing of birth and species re-
newal is left under new rules of a government agency, we
will no longer be able to share this wonderful experience
with others. Nests may be "staked" (many stakes were
removed last year by beach-goers) and statistics taken (the
government has already said they expect them to be lower
- try "haphazard," instead).
Private sector projects are aware that visual and
hands-on programs pay big dividends as a method by
which most people learn easily. By disallowing the
Anna Maria Island Turtle Watch a hatchery and release
program, they deny us the privilege of educating both
adults and children and the opportunity to let them vi-
sually encounter one of our Island's real treasures.
Betsy Smith, Anna Maria City

'An Affaire to Remember' makes
memorable amount
I would like to extend a great big "thank you" to so
many who made the "Affaire to Remember" auction
and dinner benefitting the Anna Maria Island Commu-
nity Center a wonderful success.
It has been one of the best experiences of my life,
working with such a caring and giving community.
Everyone participated so passionately and we were all
rewarded by the proceeds $45,000 for the Center.
Our committee, the Center staff, sponsors, dona-
tors, advertisers, the huge volunteer group, and of
course, our patrons and support group all these
people and their families made it a great event.
I just wanted to be sure everyone is thanked one
way or the other and say that we are looking forward
(already) to a bigger and better Affaire '97. Have a
wonderful summer and we'll see you in September.

THOSE WEE THE BAYS
Part 17, Will Bean's Dream
by June Alder


SHALL WE

DANCE?
Gladys Bean Holdstock was talking
on the telephone to her dancing partner
when I knocked on the door of her
Tampa home one day in 1988.
I'd come to interview the daughter
of the 1912 developer of the Anna Maria
Beach Resort and granddaughter of
1890s pioneer George Emerson Bean. A
maid showed me in and as Gladys put
down the phone she flashed a dazzling
smile and did a little pirouette of wel-
come. Then she took me on a tour of the
house, chock full of fine china and art
and show business memorabilia.
What took my eye was the saber
hanging above her bedroom door along
with a framed certificate.
Her father, George Wilhelm Bean,
had found the saber on San Juan Hill
shortly after the famous 1898 Spanish-
American War battle, she explained.
The certificate was an award to him
from the Cuban government for organiz-
ing a "mercy" boatlift to the war-rav-
aged Cubans.
But she took the most delight in
showing me her room-sized closet full
of gauzy, sequined ball gowns. In the
study where her dancing awards were
displayed she suddenly kicked up a
shapely, well-muscled leg and did a
deep knee bend on the edge of her desk.
"You've got to keep in shape," she
said with a twinkle in her eye.
I don't know what I expected when
we sat down for the interview (she in a
satin dressing gown, me in T-shirt and
jeans). But I certainly was not prepared
for her opener.
"Never were two people less suited
for one another than my mother and fa-
ther," Gladys Bean Holdstock declared
firmly. And from then on her recollec-
tions poured out.
Gladys was only four years old when her
father, an electrical contractor on Henry
Plant's Tampa Bay Hotel, started taking
her there to tap dance in the lavish lobby
for the amusement of hotel guests. Mabel
didn't approve, of course. Later on he had
her perform for the tourists coming off the
steamer at the Anna Maria dock.
Gladys was 16 when Will Bean lost
the resort to his former partners and re-
turned to Tampa to look for better op-
portunities. He was involved in promot-
ing Belleair Estates and other enter-
prises in Clearwater. He also got lucky
in politics, parlaying his status as former
Tampa postmaster into chairmanship of
the local Republican Party organization.
Meanwhile Mabel Bean threw herself
into civic activities. She was an officer in
the local WCTU group, and the Tampa
unit of the Equal Suffrage Association was
organized in her Hyde Park home.
Will made money but lost most of it


Will Bean with his sisters Mary (left)
and Lula (right). In this picture, taken
in the yard of his Tampa home, Bean
doesn't look quite the image of the
Lothario his daughter remembered.
within two years.
"In 1919 he pulled out of there and
we moved to New York City," Gladys
said. "He didn't have 50 cents to his
name at the time."
Nevertheless, Will rented a suite in
a fancy hotel, wheeled and dealed in
Republican circles and squired women
friends to the theater with 18-year-old
Gladys in tow. It was the heyday of the
Ziegfeld Follies, and Gladys was in
seventh heaven.
For her mother, it was a different
story.
"She hated parties," Gladys said.
"She stayed in her room and wrote,
took classes at Columbia University
and marched with Carrie Chapman
Catt to get the vote for women."
In 1920 Will and Mabel divorced
and Will moved to Washington, D.C.,
with his new bride. He was tapped to
second the nomination of Warren G.
Harding for President and was re-
warded with an appointment to the
Republican National Committee.
Meanwhile, Gladys danced in
Ziegfeld productions for 10 years be-
fore settling down with her dentist hus-
band in Tampa. Mabel lived with them
until she died in 1960.
Shortly before Will died of leuke-
mia in 1950 he paid a visit to Tampa.
"He was still very handsome,"
Gladys recalled in 1988. "Women were
all crazy about him. He took us to din-
ner at the yacht club one night and a
woman he was introduced to asked
him, 'When are you leaving?' He
kissed her hand and said, 'My dear, it
all depends on you.'"
With a giggle and a toss of her
head, Gladys added, "Oh, he was
charming and fun and lovable and you
couldn't trust him that far."
A charmer herself, Gladys danced
her whole life through. She was 95
when death stilled those tapping feet, a
year ago.

Wit and wisdom by native
Floridian Gib Bergquist


'Anna Maria Island -
Remember When'
Following the Cracker's retirement from the FBI
some years ago, he started looking around for a non-
paying but richly rewarding career change.
"Perhaps I should become a historian," he
mumbled out loud one day.
"You qualify," replied his acid-tongued wife.
"You've been history for quite some time now."
"Well, perhaps a humorist, then," countered the
Cracker.
"You qualify. You are a joke, you know," was her
witty reply.
"How about a Cracker folklorist?" he asked, set-
ting himself up for the third strike.
"You probably qualify, but your 'tall tales' and
line of bull get tiring after awhile. You need some new
material, man."
So that's how the Cracker became a wannabe histo-
rian-humorist-folklorist and he's still working on it.
Just recently he received calls from both Elizabeth
Moss and Carolyn Norwood pushing tickets for the Anna
Maria Island Historical Society's "Anna Maria Island:
Remember When" dinner at Crabby Bill's on May 4.
Having been a permanent resident of the Island for
only the past 15 years and only a summer vacationist
dating back to his youth, he had never considered his
being an Island old-timer and told the ladies so.
Taking cues from the Cracker's wife, or perhaps
it's just inborn in the female species, these two nice
ladies were quick to remark: "It's pretty obvious that
you are an old-timer from somewhere."
So now the Cracker has reluctantly added "old-
timer" to his shaky credentials list.
Through the courtesy of his good neighbors, Bob
and Phyllis Levy, the Cracker borrowed their copy of
the 1942 telephone directory for Manatee and Sarasota
Counties and finds it a fascinating document.
He finds it interesting that the Peninsular Tele-
phone Company validated the listings on Dec. 15,
1941, before going to press -just one week after the
attack on Pearl Harbor and our entrance into World
War II, making it essentially a pre-war record of area
subscribers.
A five-minute call from the Island to Bradenton
would set you back one whole buffalo nickel at that time.

Anna Maria's setbacks
In the Feb. 8 Islander Bystander article "Anna
Maria Codes get final reading Feb. 16," you reported,
"Much discussion centered on the proposal for residen-
tial sideyard setbacks which are currently 10 feet ...
Ten feet will be required for lots more than 53 feet
wide."
Many Anna Maria citizens were pleased to read
about the 10 foot setback as you reported it. Since the
first readings were held during the daytime when many
could not attend, your report was trusted as being fac-
tual and no further concerns about the setback issue
were expressed by citizens at the second reading (held
at 5 p.m. on a Friday, a time still difficult for a work-
ing citizen to attend).
Now, some two months later, at a special city com-
mission meeting April 17, Tom Turner, chairman of the
planning and zoning board, stated emphatically that the
side setback is 7 feet for lots more than 53 feet wide as
well and that your report was incorrect.
Since many of us relied upon the Islander By-
stander report as being factual, and since the side set-
back issue is important to many, whether they favored
or were opposed .to reducing it, or are contemplating
building, I call upon you to please print the actual set-
back ordinance as passed on Feb. 16.
It is important for the continued public trust in the
reporting by The Islander Bystander that the record be
set straight. We can't go back to Feb. 16 and debate the
issue, but at least the people of Anna Maria City will


have the correct information on how the ordinance has
been changed.
Charles Canniff, Anna Maria
Editor's note: Our reporter was provided with inaccu-
rate information. Appendix A defining minimum set-
backs is available for reading at Anna Maria City Hall.

Citizen awaits instructions to
help mayor do business
I find it with some interest that Ines Norman in her
recent letter to the editor acknowledged that our new
mayor of Bradenton Beach is not conducting his busi-
ness. Now she suggests that he is not getting a chance.
No matter why, she simply identified that our mayor is
not conducting his business.
I am surprised that once she identified that the new
mayor was not conducting his business she would be
the one to publish the fact in the press.
But this is good. The first step in solving the prob-
lem is admitting that the mayor is not conducting his
business.
Next she asserts that I am doing something to im-
pede the new mayor from conducting his business. I

Manatee County scores 'love' on
tennis court repair
The resurfacing of the tennis courts at Holmes
Beach is a good example of Manatee County govern-
ment at its worst.
The first questionable act of the parks and recre-
ation department was to schedule the job in February
and March, the busiest time of the year for the use of
these facilities.
Originally scheduled to be completed March 19,
the courts are still not open for play. For the past month
county workers have shown up in one, two or three
trucks, have stood around and surveyed the situation,
had a few cigarettes, done a few hours work and then
are gone again until they reappear another day and go
through the same scenario.
Complaints to parks and recreation are answered
with bureaucratic mumbo jumbo about the requirement
to get competitive bids, and the fact that the county
crews are busy because they are doing other courts in
the county.
Calls to the county commissioner's office went
unanswered.
If this project had been in the private sector, you
can rest assured it would have been done in a timely
fashion or people would not have been paid.

Island participates in county hurricane exercise


By Pat Copeland
Islander Reporter
With Hurricane Zelda bearing down on Tampa
Bay last week, emergency agencies sprang into action.
Fortunately for Islanders, the hurricane was an exercise
and not the real thing.
For the first time since the county began holding
hurricane exercises, the Island cities elected to partici-
pate through the Island Emergency Operations Center.


The Island Players will strike some funny bones
with their final production of the 1995-96 season -
Tom Dulak's comedy, "Breaking Legs."
The nine-show run will begin Friday evening, May
10, concluding Sunday, May 19. Nighttime perfor-
mances are at 8 p.m. with matinees on Sundays at 2
p.m. There will be no performance Monday, May 13.
This comedy relates the tale of the hilarious
clash between the Mafia and the theater when a pro-
fessional playwright seeks funding from the family
of a former student.
"The family" turns out to be minor Mafia god-
fathers who are willing to underwrite the play pro-
vided they never have to read it. The plot thickens
when the lusty, unwed daughter of the house falls in
love with the playwright.
Ben Thomas has the role of the genial mobster,


City staffs closed city halls the morning of April 24 and
moved into the fire station in Holmes Beach, which is
IEOC headquarters. They were joined by department
heads, elected officials and fire department personnel.
"I was very happy with the response from the cit-
ies," Fire Chief Andy Price said. "Now they realize and
understand, the time and effort needed for planning
prior to a storm. They know they can't just show up
when it happens."


Lou, whose Italian restaurant is managed by his beau-
tiful daughter, Angie, played by Pamela Hopkins.
John Green is Terrence, the bemused playwright
Completing the cast are Gabe Simches, Sam
McDowell and William (Marty) Martin as the three
gangsters, Mike, Tino and Frankie. Throughout the
play everybody eats and eats at the constant urging of
Lou who promotes his menu from calimari to meat-
balls.
Phyllis Elfenbein directs this production. Anne
Fasulo is stage manager with assistance from
Marilyn Moroni. Art Ballman is set designer, with
lighting design by Steve Henderson and costumes
by Don Bailey and John Flannery.
Tickets are $10 per person and are available at the
theater box office the corner of Gulf Drive and Pine
Avenue, Anna Maria or by calling 778-5755.


The main objectives were to check the status of
district residents on the special needs list and check for
unforeseen problems in the center's operation.
City and fire district employees verified names of
those with on the special needs, residents of the district
who have requested aid in evacuation or those who
have indicated special medical needs.
"The special needs list is an important aspect of
pre-storm preparation," Price said. "This exercise
eliminated the names of people who had died or moved
and saved us a lot of manpower."
Anyone who would like to be-added to the special
needs list should call their city hall or the fire district and
fill out a form, which can be mailed back, Price said.'
Other problems uncovered in the exercise were two
unconnected phone lines and two broken phones. Of-
ficials also agreed to install red lights on the phones so
they know which ones are ringing.
"I recommended that all city department heads come
to the IEOC meetings in the future," Price noted. "They
are the ones most affected in an emergency. We should be
doing more progressive exercises to plan for disasters."
On May 8, the same group will participate in the
recovery phase of the exercise.
"This is very important," Price stressed. "If the
cities can't help the people and businesses get back on
their feet after a hurricane, the entire tax base will be
affected. Depending on the damage done, it could be
devastating and if we're not prepared, we won't be
getting federal disaster assistance."

When Frank Derfler's heart stopped beating last
week, his friend Kay Downes didn't skip a beat.
Downes, 54, of Bradenton, and Derfler, 51, of
Key Royale Drive were just winding up a two-mile jog
on the morning of April 24 when Derfler collapsed in
his front yard. Once Downes realized Derfler was not
breathing she began administering cardiopulmonary
resuscitation (CPR). Holmes Beach Officer Chuck
Stearns, who was just turning onto Key Royale Drive
on routine patrol, arrived a minute later and joined
Downes.
A minute after Stearns arrived, Anna Maria
Firefighters Larry Revel and Ken Treffinger, as well
as the Emergency Medical Services unit; were on the
scene. EMS personnel used a semi-automatic
defibrillator to restart Derfler's heart.
Treffinger, who is also a paramedic, explained,
"When a person goes into cardiac arrest, the heart goes
into ventricular fibrillation the heart actually begins
quivering like a bowl of jelly," he said. "The
defibrillator delivers an electric shock to the heart
muscle to correct the imbalance in the rhythm."


Treffinger also noted that in cases where the heart
stops, CPR pumps the heart mechanically until the
defibrillator can be used to correct the electrical imbal-
ance.
Fire Chief Andy Price praised Downes.
"The early intervention of CPR made the differ-
ence. If the brain is without oxygen for four to six
minutes the survival rate is low. Someone doing CPR
can sustain the patient and get a flow of oxygen into the
brain until advanced life support arrives.
Sudden cardiac arrest causes more than 300,000
deaths each year in the United States because external
defibrillators arrive on the scene too late. If
defibrillators were more widely available to first re-
sponders, 20,000 to 100,000 lives could be saved, ac-
cording to the American Heart Association.
Currently firefighters, who provide first response,
don't have defibrillators available. Price is hoping in
the future the district can budget for them.
"This is a classic example of what we've been talk-
ing about," Price pointed out "It proves early interven-
tion of advanced life support care works. If the ambu-
lance had not arrived at least we could have had the
defibrillators."


Changes proposed to radically alter

coastal property insurance rates


By Jack Gurney
Special to the Islander
As the Florida Legislature winds down its annual
session, lawmakers are debating whether to change the
law that governs the property and casualty insurance
industry and lift the three-year-old moratorium that
bars companies from canceling homeowners' insur-
ance policies on a grand scale.
The stakes in the outcome are high. Thousands of
property owners in the area are at risk of either seeing
their annual homeowners' insurance bills skyrocket or
their coverage disappear.
Furthermore, with the moratorium due to expire
on Nov. 14, there are no provisions in place to guar-
antee which companies will remain in the state or
whether they will be able to pay damage claims if
another Hurricane Andrew strikes.
The legislature is divided on how to stabilize a
post-Andrew insurance industry which is propped up
by two large companies State Farm and All-State
- plus a state-mandated pooled risk arrangement for
homeowners who can't otherwise obtain coverage.
"The moratorium is necessary to keep the insur-
ance companies here in Florida," Florida State Rep.
Shirley Brown (D-Sarasota) said. "They were here for
years buying up the market. We let them in when days
were rosy, so we shouldn't let them out when things
get gray."
Sen. John McKay (R-Bradenton), whose district
includes Anna Maria Island, said, "Letting the mora-
torium expire would create chaos in the market."
Not all legislators agree a moratorium extension
is in the best interests of either residential homeowners
or the insurance industry. One powerful faction, led by
Sen. John Grant (R-Tampa), chairman of the Senate
Banking and Insurance Committee, wants to let the
moratorium expire.
Another faction, let by Rep. John Cosgrove (D-
Miami), chairman of the House Insurance Committee,
wants to extend the moratorium. The two legislative
bodies would have to agree if there is to be an exten-
sion.
Insurance industry representatives are urging leg-
islators to exclude hurricane coverage from
homeowners' insurance policies in the same manner
that flood and earthquake coverage is currently treated
as a separate risk.
The industry believes company agents should be
allowed to write separate hurricane coverage, but
damage claims should be paid out of a disaster fund
which the companies subsidize based on their share of
the market.
In the event of a disaster of the magnitude of Hur-
ricane Andrew, the disaster fund would pay damage
claims from revenue generated by the sale of long-
term bonds. The companies' annual subsidy payments


would pay debt service on the bonds and retire them.
Today the insurance industry in Florida is so out of
balance that one company State Farm insures 25
percent (approximately 1.2 million) of all the residen-
tial property owners statewide, while the second larg-
est insurer isn't even an insurance company.
The number-two insurer in Florida is the Residen-
tial Property and Casualty Joint Underwriting Associa-
tion (JUA) "pool," which was set up in the wake of
Andrew to be "an insurer of last resort."
But the JUA has grown beyond expectations be-
cause the handful of companies still doing business in
Florida are reluctant to take on any additional risk, es-,
pecially at rates they insist are below market.
As a result, the JUA provides insurance for ap-
proximately 15 percent of Florida homeowners be-
tween 850,000 and 900,000 homeowners despite the
fact it has no capital assets or cash reserves.
In third place in the insurance race is All-State,
with about 14 percent of the state's properties. Nation-
wide is a distant fourth, and remaining companies ei-
ther trail far behind or have thrown in the towel.
If another major catastrophic storm strikes, damage
claims from JUA policy holders will be paid from as-
sets of the companies which still do business in Florida,
again based on their share of the market. State Farm
and All-State stand to provide the deep pockets.
The state's insurance industry went into a tailspin
when more than $15 billion in Andrew damage claims
overwhelmed the companies in 1992. Hardest hit were
those most active in the market State Farm and All-
State.
In an attempt to prevent insurance companies from
dumping their policyholders and fleeing, the Florida
Legislature in 1993, at the urging of former Insurance
Commissioner Tom Gallagher, adopted the morato-
rium and established the JUA.
The JUA prohibited companies from canceling
more than a small percentage of their policyholders in
each calendar year, thus stopping them from closing up
in Florida and leaving policy holders scrambling for
another insurer.
The outcome of the political debate in Tallahassee
will have a direct impact on the banking, construction
and real estate industries. If insurance costs go up, the
amount of money homeowners can afford to budget for
the principal and interest on home mortgage loans will
go down.
Those who support extending the moratorium, includ-
ing Insurance Commissioner Bill Nelson, believe many of
the insurance companies still doing business in Florida
will leave if the moratorium is allowed to expire.
Those who would allow the moratorium to expire
believe it would lead to a long-term solution of the in-
surance crisis by opening up the homeowners' market
to companies which currently are not active in Florida.

Environmentalists rejoice at

Orimulsion's rejection


By Pat Copeland
Islander Reporter
To the surprise of Florida Power and Light officials,
Governor Lawton Chiles and his cabinet last week re-
jected the company's bid to become the first utility in the
country to bum the controversial fuel Orimulsion.
Environmentalists who opposed the use of the fuel
rejoiced.
"We are pleased, delighted, elated," said Gloria
Rains, chairwoman of Manasota 88, the environmen-
tal group that led opposition along with Save Our Bays.
"We're very happy for our region and its future. We
had to oppose it because the fuel was totally wrong for
our area."
In a statement released shortly after the cabinet
vote FPL said it has "a number of options following
this disappointing decision, including legal action in
the courts. FPL will be evaluating these options and
will announce its decision at a later date."
The story started six years ago when FPL began
planning to convert its Parrish plant to burn
Orimulsion, a mixture of bitumen, water and an emul-
sifying agent, to be imported from Venezuela. They
said use of the fuel would save residential users $3 per
month on their electric bills, save commercial and in-
dustrial users $1 million per year, create 40 jobs, pump
$1.5 million per year into Port Manatee and give the
county $700,000 in additional property taxes.
Environmentalists opposed its use, citing concerns


over increased air pollution, spills in Gulf and bay wa-
ters and water depletion from the Little Manatee
River. Opponents targeted nitrogen oxide (NOx) as
the most serious pollutant and maintained it would
increase nitrogen loading in local waters and contrib-
ute to the creation of ozone and acid rain. They said
spills would be difficult to clean up, because
Orimulsion disperses in water.
Two weeks ago, environmentalists began con-
verging on Tallahassee to protest the fuel's approval.
Use of the fuel was previously approved by nine
Florida governmental agencies and organizations.
The final approval was in the hands of the governor
and cabinet, sitting as the Power Plant Siting Board.
Opponents were heartened on April 20 by the
governor's request for a written order to deny FPL's
request. He cited concerns that mirrored the environ-
mentalists' arguments, as well as the hypothetical
nature of the data provided by FPL.
On April 23, the board voted 4 to 3 to deny the re-
quest after a four-hour hearing.
Rains pointed to two recent victories for the
people defeat of the megabridge on Manatee Av-
enue and Orimulsion, and noted, "I hope it portends
a change."
FPL said the decision by the board "is an espe-
cially distressing outcome for Florida's electricity
customers who will be denied the economic and en-
vironmental benefits of the Orimulsion project."

Two found in violation by code board


By Pat Copeland
Islander Reporter
The Holmes Beach Code Enforcement Board last
week found two parties in violation of the city's codes -
one for construction without a permit or site plan review
and one for holding an outdoor event without a permit.
These were the first cases for the five-member board
after three members were appointed two weeks ago. Un-
sure of procedure, board members had to turn to City
Attorney Patricia Petruff several times for guidance.

Stick to the issue
In the case against Rudy Kratz, the city maintained he
constructed a floating dock in Crabby Bill's Yacht Basin
without a permit or a site plan review. A stop work order
was issued on March 1, and on March 20 Kratz had the
dock licensed as a boat by the Florida Marine Patrol.
"The violation is the construction activity," Kratz's
attorney Charles Johnson maintained. "It is not the pres-
ence of the float. It is not a violation to have what is there.
It is recognized by the FMP, the state and the county."
Petruff restated the two violations and noted, "It is
our understanding the FMP has inspected the vessel
structure and approved the issuance of a vessel regis-
tration certificate. The city is in the process of verify-
ing that all the correct procedures were done in the li-
censing and titling of the vessel."
If it is determined the structure is not a vessel,
Kratz could be cited again, but that is not the issue be-
fore the board, Petruff said in the first of at least eight


instances that Petruff or a board member reminded
Johnson he was straying from the issue.
Johnson took another tack. He said the city issued
Kratz a license under the classification of boat dealer
and boat yard with a sub-classification boat yard and
marina, including dry dock, and he did not need a li-
cense to build a boat.
Petruff again noted this was not the issue. She ex-
plained the city has permitted 10 charter boats to be
docked in the basin since 1991. After Bill Zalla pur-
chased the restaurant, he leased the charter business to
Kratz and that is the only approved use there.
"When the occupational license was issued by a
city staff member it was issued in error," she continued.
"A corrected license was issued as soon as the error
was discovered."
Luke Courtney said, "We approved a site plan for
a boat rental business. We did not approve a site plan
for construction of vessels. This is a totally ridiculous
request."
Petruff further noted that all construction requires
a site plan review and a boat builder also needs a spe-
cial permit.
Johnson asked if Kratz could complete construc-
tion, because the structure is a hazard with nails stick-
ing up and incomplete decking. If not, Kratz would
have no alternative but to tow it out of the city's juris-
diction, complete it and tow it back into the basin which
would be both dangerous and difficult, he said.
The safety of the structure is the owner's responsibil-

ity, but again that is not the issue, said Petruff. Kratz can-
not do any further construction without obtaining a build-
ing permit and a site plan review, which could take up to
60 days with no guarantee he'll get it.
Petruff noted that the city cannot order the
structure's removal because if it's determined that it is
a boat, it can be tied to a dock.
"To tell me that it is difficult for you to move a
vessel out of a basin raises questions in my mind about
whether it's really a vessel," she said "If the city deems
that the structure creates a public health, safety and
welfare issue, it will take appropriate action, but that's
not before you."
Bracken added that allowing Kratz to complete
construction would be a tacit acceptance by the city.
The board found Kratz in violation on both charges
and fined him $40 or double the cost of a building per-
mit on the first violation and $125 on the second vio-
lation. Both fines are to be paid within seven days.

mit to hold a car show with a disc jockey in the parking
lot The Feb. 28 event angered neighbors because of the
loud music. They also complained that people were mill-
ing about in front of their homes drinking beer there was
trash and debris left after the event
Tim O'Brien, the restaurant's general manager,
told the board, "I apologize for the party. I was un-
aware we needed a special permit. As soon as I found
out, I immediately suspended any events outside."
Neighbors Judith and Edwin VanBeuzekom said
several special events held in the restaurant's parking
lot have created problems.
"Why not have them in the field behind city hall?
asked Judith VanBeuzekom. "Why do they have to be
right in front of the entrances to our homes?"
"People have to get permits and can't ignore the
etiquette of telling their next door neighbors if they're
going to have a big party outside," said Chairman Art
Ballman."
Bracken noted that O'Brien was not contesting the
charges and asked Petruff about retroactive action.
The board can find him in violation and impose a
fine, said Petruff. Then if it happens again, he can be
cited as a repeat violator with a higher fine.
Member Joan Perry moved to find O'Brien guilty
and fine him $40 or double the amount of the tempo-
rary use permit to "show we must have an understand-
ing for the law in the community." The fine must be
paid within seven days.

There is something new on the sports scene at the

AMICC coaches have selected two teams, one ages
7 to 9 and the other ages 14 to 17, which will be play-
ing in a spring/summer basketball season. The boys and
girls will be representing the Island against teams from
G.T. Bray parks and recreation program.
Games will be played at the Island Center on Mon-
days through June 24 at 6:45 and 7:45 p.m. for the 14
to 17 year olds, and on Fridays through June 14 at 6:45
and 7:45 p.m. for the 7 to 9 year olds.


Why does it cost so much

to fix my TV & VCR?


Because many service shops don'tre-
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
stumped.
If it's a TV, VCR or home stereo,
and it doesn't work, we'll find the
problem, we'll fix it, and we'll guaran-
tee it...
We actually repair things!

The Island Poet
You retire and are very happy that you've survived,
And think everything is rosy and good times have arrived.
But things are deceiving and you can take this to heart,
For now is the time of life when you start to fall apart.
First your teeth will give you trouble and your eyes will start to go,
And if your hearing don't go bad you're luckier than you know.
Yet some folks have the nerve to say these are the golden years,
When any gold you might have saved so quickly disappears.

Snook, South African
delicacy?
Being the good detectives er, investigative re-
porters that we are, we recently noticed snook pop-
ping up on menus and we had to inquire further.
Snook a highly delicious and much desired
sportfish is not sold commercially. At least so we
thought.
It turns out the snook on the menu at Mar Vista
Restaurant and Pub on Longboat Key is imported from
South Africa. Lake Victoria.
I can't tell you if it compared fairly
with local snook because I
couldn't re-
sist my
usual fare,
a grouper sand-
wich. The "Snook Mar
Vista" was a dinner entree, pan
seared with artichoke hearts, mushrooms and
lemon butter. It was tempting, as was mako shark,
chargrilled with sundried tomato and basil cream sauce.
An expedition to downtown Bradenton uncovered
another example of snook on the menu. At a busy lunch
and dinner spot across from the Financial Center,
Andiamo's Ristorante Italiano, a query about the snook
was answered, "Yes, it's fresh."
Well, we hope not. Not fresh and local caught,
anyway. How does one get "fresh" fish here from
South Africa anyway?
And what is "fresh?"
According to Funk & Wagnall it's "newly made,
obtained, received, etc. Not smoked, frozen or other-
wise preserved. Not spoiled, stale or musty."


Another authority, Cortez's Bell Fish Company co-
owner Calvin Bell, said he calls fresh "Caught it to-
day." He added that it shouldn't have "laid around."
We agree with Calvin.

Isn't it
(environmentally)
ironic?
It's 10 years since Chernobyl. Sixteen years since
the Sunshine Skyway Bridge collapsed. And just days
after the defeat by the Florida Cabinet of the burning
of the experimental fuel Orimulsion at Florida Power
and Light's Parrish plant.
While watching TV news (a re-visit to Chernobyl
on 60 Minutes) a few days after the Orimulsion deci-
sion, a voice in a commercial touting those big, huge
(named for bugs) yellow tractor trucks and assorted
loaders and unloaders told how hard they
work and how far they
travel glo-
bally to get
the job done.
The example
was their contri-
bution to build-
ing a new airport in
Hong Kong.
And where was that airport being built? "The only
place in Hong Kong where there's room for it," accord-
ing to the voice in the commercial "in the China
Sea."
Dump trucks are shown dropping fill in the water
and an overall, overhead view shows the immensity of
it all right there off the shoreline a huge
manmade island that will be the new Hong Kong Air-
port.
For all the foes of a megabridge to Anna Maria
Island, just imagine the environmental impacts of that.
Speaking of bridges, have you noticed that the fish-
ing pier created from the remnants of the Skyway
Bridge on the Manatee side (which just opened to fish-


ers) has been 16 years in the making?
And did you ever wonder why the Florida Depart-
ment of Transportation neglected to propose transform-
ing the existing Manatee Avenue bridge into a fishing
pier when (if) its proposed replacement was built?
FYI: They couldn't. DOT proposed to further ex-
pand the two-lane replacement with a second two-lane
bridge in the exact location of the existing Anna Maria
Island Bridge. State laws prohibit replacing recre-
ational areas (i.e. a fishing pier) with bridges and such.
Then the plan changed from engineering report to fi-
nal construction plans. They enlarged the size of the pro-
posed bridge to accommodate future lane expansion.
What a tangled web they weave.

Mermaid dining at Pops
"An Evening Under the Stars" includes picnicking,
music and fun for all at the outdoor event on the Mana-
tee Community College Bradenton campus, 5840 26th
St., Saturday, May 4, at 8:15 p.m. Gates open at 6 p.m.
for picnicking.
A catered dinner by Sign of the Mermaid restaurant
of Anna Maria will be offered for those who would
rather not pack a picnic.
Maestro Paul Wolfe will mount the podium for
his final performance as conductor of the Florida
West Coast Symphony at the 6th Annual MCC at the
Pops. Special guest vocalist Jeannette La Voy will
also perform.
General admission tickets can be purchased at
Barnett Bank offices in Manatee County. For informa-
tion and reserved seating call 753-0850.

Oops
Auction correction: The dock donated by Taylor-
Made Marine to the Anna Maria Island Community
Center Auction was a 5-by-20-foot dock, not 5-by-10
as reported. It sold for $850 and a quickly arranged
second dock, also donated by Jim Taylor, sold for the
same price. Double the money for the Center and
double the effort from Taylor. Thanks again.

Breathtaking boats, fish shrinking palms


By Bob Ardren
Outdoor Perspectives
Our own Capt. Mike Heistand has a new boat on
order that just might change the way local watercraft
are designed. Specifically, the 22-foot center console
boat's propeller never protrudes below the keel line.
That means there's almost no way a manatee, for
example, could ever be cut by the boat's prop.
Snead Island's Bob Whitehead is building
Heistand's new boat on Whitehead's own patented
design that incorporates a deep V configuration on the
forward part of the craft and a tunnel design aft. The
engine is suspended in the tunnel, protecting both the
prop and anything it might otherwise hit in the water.
Sounds like a good idea to me, and we'll show
you some pictures of it when Heistand takes deliv-
ery of the new boat.

Boat show bluster
Capt. Mike was lecturing at the Suncoast Boat
Show in Sarasota last weekend when I ran into him and
learned about his new boat As usual in these kinds of
situations, Heistand was explaining the finer points of
inshore fishing to boat show visitors who probably
hadn't seen, much less caught, as many fish in their life
as Mike hooks up with in a couple of good days of
charter work.
I couldn't help but notice mouths dropping as he
casually mentioned "seeing 100 snook a day" during
good fishing times.
Also, like all boat shows, this one was awash in
gadgets some clearly useful, some not so clearly
that. The item that seemed to be gathering the most
attention last weekend was an underwater television
camera, available in either black-and-white or color.
Called the Fisheye (what else?), this $1,445 for
black-and-white, $2,000 for color device allows you to
see what's happening under your boat. A sort of high
tech glass-bottomed bucket, if you will.

The sales guy from West Florida Marine in
Sarasota assured me it's handy for scouting out schools
of fish, checking out a dive site or even inspecting a
dock, pier or other underwater structure. He even sug-
gested possibly hooking up a VCR so the underwater
action could be recorded.
He obviously owns a much larger boat than any-
thing to which I've ever aspired.

Case of shrinking palms
Only in Miami. Dade County officials have discov-
ered that hundreds of palm trees ordered from a politi-
cally connected grower actually got significantly
shorter after being planted.
"Shrunk like a cheap shirt," is how Miami Herald
columnist Carl Hiaasen put it.
It seems the county ordered and paid for 430 royal

palms between 28 and 30 feet tall. But somebody mea-
sured them recently and the trees are only 22 to 24 feet
tall. The county seems to think that Diaz Farms maybe
owes the citizenry about $50 a tree in refunds, but the
grower says it's all a misunderstanding.
"A Diaz Farms spokesperson postulated that cold
weather and the trauma of transplanting caused the
palms to lose three or four feet of height," Hiaasen re-
ports:-It now turns out-that hundreds of other trees-pur-
chased by the county were significantly shorter than
paid for, too.
Thank goodness this shrinking plant disorder
hasn't struck the Island, at least yet, and if you want to
avoid having it here, take some advice from Hiaasen:
don't buy any plants from a grower whose nursery re-
ally should be called "Withering Heights."
See you next week.

Snook, reds in the backwater; cobia, kings offshore


By Capt. Mike Heistand
The headline says it all: spring fishing is here and
it just doesn't get much better than this!
Kevin at the Rod and Reel Pier said pier regular
Billy caught a 30-inch snook and a 27-inch redfish last
week, with Larry bringing in a 30-inch snook, John a
20-inch linesider and the rest of the crew still doing OK
with sheepshead.
Gary at the Anna Maria City Pier said anglers
there have been fishing 'round the clock with good
catches of sheepies in the morning, stingrays most of
the time and small snook at night.
Wayne at the Bradenton Beach Fishing Pier said
the best bets there have been sheepshead, mackerel,
pompano, flounder and a few snook and sharks at
night.
Jamie at Miss Cortez Fishing Fleet said the four-
hour trips averaged 70 head of Key West grunts and
sand perch. The six-hour trips averaged 100 head of
vermilion snapper, gray snapper and black sea bass.
The nine-hour trips averaged 30 head of red grouper,
mangrove snapper and a few black grouper.
Chris at Galati Yacht Basin said kingfish are out
in the Gulf about nine miles from shore. Chris suggests
trolling with a #3 planner, a big spoon or give free lin-
ing with live bait and chum a chance to bring 'em to the
boat. Other offshore action includes grouper in 80-90
feet of water as the weather improves, and continued
good catches of mangrove snapper, some up to seven
pounds.
Carl at Perico Island Bait & Tackle said wade

fishers were doing very good with snook, a few nice-
sized trout and a couple of redfish. Here's a tip for you
boaters from Carl: bait fish are starting to congregate
at the bulkhead.
Capt. Rick Gross said he's finding good catches
of snook and lots of redfish. He said gold spoons are
working well on bringing the reds to the line.
Capt. Mark Bradow said snook, reds and trout are
what he's bringing in more than anything else, with
some of the redfish stretching to more than 30 inches.
On my boat Magic I've found that bait is finally
here in large numbers and fishing is really at a pre-
mium. Scottie Stoddard from Longboat Key caught and
released more than 20 nice redfish while out on a char-

ter last week with me a half-day charter, at that!
We've also been catching a lot of snook.
Capt. Tom Chaya said he's finding good numbers
of good-sized snook, some more than 10 pounds in
size, and enough reds to keep everyone happy.
Bill at Island Discount Tackle said cobia are start-
ing to show up on almost all of the offshore artificial
reefs. Kingfish are still being caught 10 to 12 miles
offshore. Backwater action includes snook and redfish,
with live shiners the best bait.
Capt. Mike Greig said his charters are catching
lots of cobia, some up to 25 pounds, and a bunch of 12-
pound snook.
Good luck and good fishing.
