America


robbed in


Holmes


Beach
A patient man robbed an Island financial institution
last week.
Threatening that he had a gun, the lone man en-
tered the south door of the First of America bank build-
ing at 603 Manatee Avenue West in Homes Beach at
12:33 p.m. on June 12 and waited in line for a teller.
According to Holmes Beach Det. Sgt. Nancy
Rogers, once at the teller window, the robber held up
a piece of torn legal pad that said, "Give me all your
money. I have a gun."
The man then said, "I've got a gun. Don't make me
use it. Hurry up. Hurry up."
The man then left the building with more than
$2,000. Witnesses at the bank said no vehicle was seen,
Rogers said.
He is described as 25 to 30 years old, of slender
build and 5-feet, 6 or 7 inches in height, He has shoul-
der-length brown hair and a brown mustache, tan com-
plexion and an unkempt appearance.

An oil painting of George and Martha Washington
was destroyed by the Manatee County Hazardous Ma-
terials Unit in a bomb scare in Holmes Beach Friday.
The story unfolded when Anna Maria resident Pat
SComkowycz found a suspicious package partially coy--
S ered by newspapers in the back seat of her car. Her car
was parked outside the post office at the S & S Plaza
in the 5300 block of Gulf Drive.
Comkowycz said she drove to the Holmes Beach
Police Department with the unmarked package where
the dispatcher on duty placed it a safe area on city prop-
erty and called the Sheriff's Department.
The bomb squad was dispatched to Holmes Beach.

The package revealed a picture frame and the re-
mains of a painting of George and Martha Washington
valued at $15,000 by the avowed owner. The nails
shown in the X-ray held the frame together.
On Monday, Holmes Beach Lt. Dale Stephenson
announced that a man wishing to remain anonymous
had claimed ownership of the package. The owner had
placed the package containing the valuable oil painting
in the wrong car, a car model closely resembling his,
Stephenson explained.
"It's unfortunate the way it happened," Stephenson
said. "It was the owner's mistake. We can only go on

suspicious the way it was put in the vehicle and covered."
Stephenson advised anyone who finds a suspi-

lice to pick it up.

There have been near-misses and finally a nasty acci-

there, especially on weekends.

Anna Maria owns a piece on the lake


By Cynthia Finn
Islander Reporter
Yes, Anna Maria City does own a little piece of
Lake LaVista waterfront green space on the south side
of Lakeview Drive near the eastern end of the street.
"But it comes with some baggage," City Attorney
Jim Dye told city commissioners June 11 under an
agendaitem titled "Lake LaVista City Park."
S "The baggage" includes access that is limited on
paper to residents of the Lake LaVista Subdivision.
Plus, the parcel has been home for years to seven small,
private docks.
Most of the docks are in poor shape and one is
underwater. Some of them have identification attach-
ing them to properties on Crescent Drive, which is part
of the subdivision.
The parcel itself appears to be approximately 220
feet wide by 50 to 60 feet deep.
Public Works Director Phil Charnock said his im-
mediate concern is city liability should anyone be hurt
on the docks.
Lakeview Drive resident Carolyn Pepka said she
thought the docks were for the use of Lakeview and
Crescent drive residents who had no water access. She
said the only people she sees using the docks are kids.
"Forthe young people, those docks mean a lot for
fishing," she said.
A recent real estate transaction on Crescent
Drive began a city inquiry into rights of use. The
purchaser believed the Crescent home included a
deed to one of the docks.
Dye said his research indicates that the area was
originally intended for subdivision use, particularly by
owners not fronting on Lake LaVista.
However, he said, the last public record on the
parcel shows that decades ago a subdivision developer
deeded the parcel to the city. The deed still reserves its

tions, all of them bound to bring stress and woe to
Bradenton Beach's police department.
The Bradenton council proposed banning personal
watercraft within 150 feet of most of the south side of
the causeway, devoting the area exclusively to swim-
mers. Then it moved on to a compromise in the form
of declaring a "no wake" zone there, which automati-
cally would require slower speeds than the watercraft
drivers find normal.
This prospect drew praise from residents, water-
craft riders and at least one manufacturer, Yamaha, as
represented by Cole Blanton.
Not Chief Maloney. "I'm not thrilled with the
idea," he said.
The reason is that restricting watercraft operations
In one place is likely to drive them to another, in this
case the nearby public ramp across the road from Co-
quina Beach at the south tip of the Island.
His city has been studying the possibility of an
ordinance prohibiting launching except in authorized
locations, he said, which at least would give the police
authority to keep them off the Gulf beaches.
And the Florida Legislature is considering driver's
licenses for watercraft users, he said, which would be
a help "There are a lot of young people running
around like idiots" on the watercraft, Maloney said, and
police making them show licenses to run around would
give some control.
"I don't like the government bothering me any
more than anyone else," Chief Maloney said, "but there
has to be some control" over this burgeoning sport.

use for those in the subdivision.
Dye said the city could go through a vacating pro-
cess to remove the restriction, suggesting that it "might
not be appropriate" to spend money on the site until the
access issue is resolved.
As for the docks, Dye said it's up to the Building
Department to determine if they're there legally. If not,
he said, "there's a way to get them down."
Charnock said a 1991 request to repair one of the
docks was uncovered but there's no record that any of


the docks were ever permitted.
Mayor Chuck Shumard asked about the possibility, of
replacing the existing docks with one dock for public use.
SCommissioner George McKay said parking might
be a problem, but "it might be a nice green area and just
get rid of the docks."
Resident Judy Adams asked "as a point of cour-
tesy" that the city "should communicate" with residents
of the neighborhood before moving forward with any
plans for the parcel.


Mayor says strong mayor form

of government is best


By Pat Copeland
Islander Reporter
Bradenton's Mayor Bill Evers came to Holmes
Beach to tell the Charter Review Commission thecity
should stick with the strong mayor form of government
instead of hiring a city manager.
The commission has had several discussions re-
garding the changing to a city manager form of govern-
ment. In April, the commission heard a presentation
from Peter Knowles, a Florida Range Rider for the
Florida City and County Management Association.
Knowles lauded the city manager form of government
and Evers took issue with Knowles' advice.
"That advice comes from a former city manager,
one that is still working for a city managers' associa-
tion," Evers said. "And you have to understand this is
a livelihood. If the city has a mayor and council that are
dedicated, want to work and are interested in their city
and want to see something done in their city, stick with
the mayor form of government."
One of Knowles' arguments is that the city can't
get rid of an ineffective mayor, but it can fire an inef-
fective city manager.
"I don't know where he's coming from," Evers
said. "A good mayor will work with council. If he tries
to hide things, he's not doing his job. And the mayor
is responsible to the people of his community. He has
to run for office every two years. A mayor can be re-
moved from office by the governor or through a recall
petition. Or the people can vote him out of office at the
next election, but you cannot get a city manager out."
If the city does decide to get rid of its city manager,
it will have to buy out his contract, Evers said. He also
disputed the salary range of $45,000 to $51,000 given
by Knowles and said it's actually about $62,000 for a
good city manager.
With the city manager form of government, all re-
ferrals and requests must go through the city manager,
Evers said.
"The mayor and council have to go through the man-
ager," he said. "The control will be out of their hands.'
Another issue is the budget, he said.
The city manager will say he can make a budget
without politics, Evers noted. "Bull. Let's be truthful.


All he has to do is keep three people on the council
happy to keep his job. He'll put what he thinks they
want in the budget. If the mayor does that, you can vote
him out of office."
One problem in many small cities is that they don't
pay the mayor and council, Evers noted.
"Why?" he asked. "What's wrong with the mayor
and council making some money? That's why many
people don't run for office. They're not going to put
full time into a city for $50 or $100 a month."
Those who run for municipal office in small com-
munities are usually members of the community who
know the community, its residents and its problems,
and have the city's interest at heart, he noted. A city
manager is generally an outsider who must learn about
the community and does not have a rapport with resi-
dents or other government officials.
"You have a fine city," he concluded. "There's not
much future growth, but you still have to provide services.
It can be run by a mayor and council very easily."

Questions and answers
Q: What are the pros and cons of a two-year term?
E: I think it should be four years. In two years the
mayor gets projects started and may never get to see
them through. I think it takes about four years for him
to get know what direction he's going In, who his de-
partment heads are and who the community movers
and shakers are that he can go to to get things done.
Most people don't want to get out and run for office
every two years. It's a hard thing to do and It's costly.
Q: You'd rather take your chances with a inexpe-
rienced and enthusiastic mayor/council person who
cargo about his community and has been elected by his
community than a paid city manager?
E: Yes.
Q: Would you feel comfortable leaving your city
to someone with no experience?
E: Yes, but I'm a firm believer that if that's what
the people voted for, that's what they get. I don't think
you're going to have some bar fly running for mayor,
or if you do, the people are educated enough to go into
his background. Sometimes people don't and we all
have to live with something like that.

By Pat Copeland
Islander Reporter
Architect Patterson Fletcher presented several op-
tions on building sites for a new city hall complex to
the Holmes Beach City Council last week.
Included were sites along 58th Street leading to the
library, in the parking lot east of the present city hall
and at the south end of the present city hall parking lot
toward the library. Discussion will continue at the June
25,7 p.m., work session.
The idea of moving the site came up when coun-
cil learned how costly it would be to relocate the po-
lice department and its communications system dur-
ing construction.
"One of the spots we discussed was a piece of
property between the library and the street," Fletcher
noted. "The building I originally designed would not fit
because of the setbacks. I took the square footage, ap-

vice in Atlanta during the 1996 Summer Olympics.
The Siesta Key Trolley and the Anna Maria
Island Trolley will join trolleys from other states at
the Summer Games from July 15 through Aug. 6.
There will be no local daily route service for the
Anna Maria to St. Armands route during those
dates, but there will be a trolley available for pri-
vate charters and business shuttleS. Daily service
will resume after Aug. 6.
TSA owner Gary Creamans said, "It will be

proximately 12,500 square feet, and it fits like a glove."
One drawback, Fletcher said, is that any future
expansion of the building would have to be on top
rather than outward, eliminating a sloped roof and cre-
ating the need for elevators. The street would be used
as the parking lot and it would be smaller than the
present parking lot.
"Other discussion was to place it back further in the
present parking lot," he said. "If we do that and save the
public works garage, that places it right in front of city
hall. You'll have a building separation problem, and
you can't develop any kind of parking lot until (the
present) city hall is gone."
Fletcher said his first choice, architecturally and
functionally, is to put the building on the original site
(between city hall and the public works building). One
advantage is the parking area would serve the building
as well as the mall area where festivals and events are
held. Another advantage is that the building would be
connected to the public works garage.
He said his second choice would be near the library.
Councilwoman Carol Whitmore asked about plac-
ing the building at the end of the present parking lot at
the library end.
The building could not go to the end of the park-
ing lot because of setback regulations, Fletcher said.
The old city hall would also be in the way and would
have to be demolished.
Resident Bob Jorgensen suggested eliminating the
street and repositioning city hall on the site near the library.
Councilwoman Billie Martini said she still wants
to incorporate the presentbuilding into the plan.
"You have to direct me, but my opinion is that it's
more cost effective to tear the building down." Fletcher
replied. "You'll have to make the building comply with
Americans with Disabilities Act and Federal Emergency
Management Agency requirements. If not, you've only
got 50 percent (of the value) for remodeling."
,Councilman Ron Robinson said he is still seeking
more information on FEMA requirements.

Capt. Glenn Gee; righAt and teammates, front from left, Dan Jordan and Ray
Ciemniecki, and back, Brian Kisluk and Dave Porter, had plenty to celebrate
after earning $5,000 and the offshore first-place title.


A second $5,000 prize for tops in the inshore division went to Capt. Mark
Spencer, left, and crew members Walter Graham, Al Graham and Jonathan
Shute.


Victory twice as sweet


Three black grouper, a 25-pound cobia and two 11-
pound red snapper were the catch to beat in the offshore
division of last weekend's fourth annual "Fishing the
Islands Tournament."
Capt. Glenn Gee and his crew were the offshore
team to beat for the second year running.
"It's amazing," tournament sponsor Bill Lowman
declared to the capacity crowd of all ages at Sunday's
awards barbecue at the Anna Maria Island Community
Center.
"Look around," Lowman said. "We've got all the
best local competitors in the sport right here. And these
guys did it two years in a row!"
With that statement, Lowman handed over one of
two first-place checks for $5,000 to Gee and team
members Ray Ciemniecki, Dave Porter, Danny Jordan
and Brian Kisluk. Under the offshore point system that
counted points per fish and points per pound, their win-
lung catch came in at 293.1 points ..:
S This year's tournament featured separate offshore
and inshore divisions for the first time with equal
Prize monies. Capt. Mark Spencer and his crew -
Walter and Al Graham and Jonathan Shute topped
the scales with large trout to capture the $5,000 first-


place prize for inshore angling.
The inshore point system earned fishers points per
species and per inch. The Spencer team tallied 573
points for five trout over 21 inches and a 39-inch
snook.
Second place offshore and $2,000 went to Capt.
Dennis Schavey, Eric Bergen, Dave Dries, Tom Surma
and Rich Nowak whose grouper catch totaled 286.4
points. Capt. Don Thornsberry's team caught three
dolphin, two wahoo and a barracuda for a third in off-
shore, $1,000 and 265.2 points.
In the inshore competition, second place and
$2,000 went to Capt. Robert Bustle, Brian Ormsby,
Kirt Aylward and Dwight Andress, 562 points for four
trout, one flounder and one snook. Capt. Robert Popp
and crew took third, $1,000, for a 553.5-point catch of
three snook and three flounder.
Individuals gaining recognition for their day on the
water included:
Outstanding inshore catch, adult, Larry Looper,
42.5-inch snook;
Outstanding inshore catch, youth under 16, Brice
Johnson, 22-inch trout;

Group seeks cost/benefit analysis of rental ordinance


By Pat Copeland
Islander Reporter
The Holmes Beach Civic Association wants the
city council to provide a cost/benefit analysis of the
proposed ordinance on residential rental duration.
In a May 30 meeting, council agreed on mini-
mums of 30 days in the R-l and R-3 districts and 14
days in the R-2 district. A 30-day minimum in the R-
1AA district (Key Royale) and a seven-day mini-
mum in the R-4 district (mostly south of Manatee
Avenue) are already in place through other ordi-
nances.
.. In a letter to council the civic association's board
said its principal concern is enforcement costs and
potential lawsuits if the proposal is enacted.
It asked an analysis based on what concerns
brought about the rental restriction ordinance.
The association asked for results of a 1993 sur-


vey done by the planning commission on rentals and
long- and short-term costs for enactment and
enforcement.
Council Chairman Luke Courtney said he would
prepare an analysis for the 7 p.m. June 25 meeting
in which the public is invited to speak on the pro-
posed ordinance.
Holmes Beach resident Jeff Gary asked if there
are any penalties included in the ordinance.
Complaints on residential rentals are code en-
forcement matters and are investigated by the code
enforcement officer, Courtney said. If it is deter-
mined a violation exists, code enforcement sends a
certified letter from the city that gives a specified
time for the property owner to come into compli-
ance. If they don't comply, the case is heard by the
code enforcement board which has the authority to
levy a penalty of up to $250 per day.


Councilwoman Carol Whitmore asked if the
June 25 meeting will be the last public work session
on the issue.
"We'll discuss it as much as everyone wishes,"
Courtney replied. There could be changes after the
work session. The planning commission will then
have 60 days to come up with a recommendation'
Courtney said that when he has a final ord-
nance, he'll send it to the Florida Ethics Commission
for an opinion on whether he and Councilwoman,
Billie Martini, who both own property in districts,
are affected by the ordinance. He said they intend to
abstain from voting on the ordinance unless directed
otherwise by the Ethics Commission.
Councilman Don Maloney asked how many
votes are required to pass the ordinance.
"We need a quorum of four," Courtney said,
"But we (he and Martini) can just be present."

County: No EMS changes without full discussion


By Pat Copeland
Islander Reporter
Three county commissioners present at last week's
Public Safety Summit said there will be no changes in
the county's ambulance service without full discussion
by the board in an open meeting.
Commissioners were reacting to public outcry
about a new plan for ambulance service that was an-
nounced in a memo to EMS employees on June 5 or-
dering implementation on June 17.
The plan, called Flexible Unit Deployment, closely
Resembled Peak Demand Staffing and was slated to go
into effect on June 17 but was sidelined by Public
Safety Director Mike Latessa last week.
Peak Demand Staffing was proposed by the county
in March. It called for the county's 12 ambulances to
be on the road during times when emergency calls
peak. During slack times the number of ambulances
would be reduce and remaining ambulances would
move to centralized locations.
EMS units would also be relocated under PDS
from station houses to posts along the county's road-
ways. According to Latessa, the goal was to decrease
response time without additional ambulances and per-
sonnel while increasing employee productivity.
In the FUD plan, all EMS units would be relocated to
posts, as in PDS,.but only during the peak hours from 1
to 9 p.m. Also, the number of ambulances wouldn't be
reduced, as in PDS, but would remain at 12. However, as
ambulances were called into duty, the posts would change.
S After public outcry about PDS, County Adminis-
trator Ernie Padgett announced the county commission
would take two years to study alternatives to PDS and
recommend a plan. In addition, Padgett promised pub-
lic input throughout the process.

Public and officials not consulted
When FUD was announced, residents, elected of-
ficials and public safety employees were again upset by
the lack of input.
At the summit, Chief Henry Sheffield of the North
River Fire District said, "We were under the understand-
i 'irti-ahy change in EMS service was a closed issue for
,two years. I found out by reading the EMS memo board
"that things were to change June 17.1 found out today it's
been changed back again. If you are going to change ser-
vices, that's fine, but we would like to be notified."
S Latessa said he sent letters to all the county's fire
districts announcing the change. He said the plan is on


hold due to a technical problem with equipment, and
the date for implementation is still open. He said imple-
menting the plan is an administrative decision designed
to keep costs down and improve service.
"FUD divides up the county equally," he noted.
"We've gone to great lengths to identify the posts. The
plan is flexible because we can study calls and activ-
ity and move the posts. They're not fixed in one loca-
tion. Some areas get calls over and over again, and we
can rotate fresh crews in there.
County Commissioner Pat Glass said the plan was
confusing, and those residents in remote areas such as -
the Island and north of the river are very concerned
about the change.
"Chart it out and bring it to a commission meet-
ing," she told Latessa. "Each commissioner has a dif-
ferent understanding and the people are concerned
about their personal safety."
"There are too many acronyms," County Commis-
sioner John Gause said. "I understand plain English.
People need to understand it and be informed."
"What should be remembered is that we shouldn't
be making decisions in a vacuum," said Commissioner
Lari Ann Harris. "We should involve all the public
service providers and we should also educate and in-


Challenged by the late Ray Simches, former
mayor of Anna Maria, The Islander Bystander began
a horseshoe contest last year to promote unity among
the Island's three cities.
The team of Tim Lease and Alan "Zak" Szakacs,
sponsored by Tip of the Island restaurant, won the
first-ever Ray Simches Memorial Island Cities Horse-
shoes Tournament last year.
Horseshoe players from all over Anna Maria Is-
land will have a chance to meet the challenge this
year on Saturday, June 29, at the Anna Maria city hall
pits. The deadline for entry in this year's contest is
Wednesday, June 26.
Two-person teams may represent restaurants,
businesses, neighborhoods or families and friends.
The entry fee for the round-robin tournament is $20
per team. Individual trophies for the winners and


form the public."
She suggested the commission form a blue ribbon
committee to study the issues.

Other issues
The Volunteer Coordination Subcommittee recom-
mended that the county establish a pool of volunteers
for public safety agencies under the umbrella of the
county's Volunteer Services Board. A coordinator fa-
miliar with public safety agencies would have direct
control of the program.
The coordinator would be responsible for estab-
lishing volunteer selection criteria, developing a cur-
riculum for a training program, recruiting volunteers
and instructors and coordinating with public safety
agencies and the board to place volunteers.
The public safety volunteer course should include
public relations, traffic control; report writing, taking or-
ders, chain of command, military time, 800 MHz radio
operations and training in cardiopulmonary resuscitation.
The Public Safety Fair Subcommittee recom-
mended that a county-wide Public Safety Fair be held
in the spring at the mall. The location would allow for
static displays inside the mail and activities and larger
equipment outside.


prizes, both cash and merchandise, will be awarded.
A traveling plaque is presented by the newspaper
and the winners to their city of origin for display
throughout the year.
This year, all entry fees will be donated to the
fund for a new gym floor at the Center. Anne
Chiles, head of the floor-fund committee, reports
donations of $15,000 have been made toward the
total estimated cost of $28,000 and bleachers will
cost an additional $9,000. Last year's tournament
fees were dedicated to the cost of the new lights on
the baseball and soccer fields at the Anna 'Maria
Island Community Center.
Entry forms are available at Island city halls,
from many local businesses and at The Islander By-

EMS disguise
The Peak Demand Staffing plan that infuriated Island-
ers weeks ago came back from Manatee County's Emer-
gency Management Services in the form of Flexible Unit
Deployment last week.
It was ordered into use with an effective date of June 17
but was quickly withdrawn when a new furor emerged.
EMS maintained the PDS since disguised as FUD
would result in increased response times, but critics said
it would amount to a decrease in service for the Island.
There still have been no public meetings on either plan
and there was no input from other public safety agencies.
There were rumblings, though. Firefighters and EMS per-
sonnel say they saw it coming from behind-the-scenes la-
bor negotiations.
At a special session in April with the Holmes Beach
City Council, Manatee County Administrator Ernie Padgett
announced the county commission would take two years to
study alternatives to PDS and recommend a plan. In addi-
tion, Padgett promised public input throughout the process.
But the new plan, FUD, was announced in a memo to
EMS employees from Dino Villani, EMS chief, with an
effective date of June 17.
So much for the administrator's promises.
S"This is PDS in drag," Save Anna Maria President Joy
Courtney said. '"They promised us public hearings. To me
it shows how they give lip service to the meaning of public
input We, the people, have been fudded."
"This is one reason people have very little respect for
the county government. They say one thing and do another,"
said Anna Maria Fire Chief Andy Price.
i. 'm mad as hell. Coming on the heels of everything
Else that's happened, it's totally inappropriate," declared
Manatee County Commissioner Lari Ann Harris, who
strongly opposed the original plan.
S What the Island wants for its share of tax dollars is in-
creased service, personnel and ambulances. A total of 12
ambulances have serviced the county for 10 years and by
way of growth-particularly on the Island during the win-
terseason-logic would seem to dictate that number should
have increased.
S Ifyou've ever asked yourself why thefire truck goes on
ambulance emergency calls, it's because there are only two
S EMS personnel in the ambulance and if they have to Wrans-
port someone to the hospital, a firefighter must accompany
them. When there's an accident requiring more than one
ambulance well, that just leaves every other emergency
.service in the area short-handed.
From our remote outpost on Anna Maria, we perceive
Islanders won't settle for less than improved and increased
emergency services. It's what they deserve.
Some Islanders are asking the Anna Maria Fire District
to take over Island emergency service and ask Manatee
County to return our share of tax dollars. It's a radical move
but the loss of revenue to the county is suretoget theirat-
tention.

I YOl-R9PINIONI


To the city of Holmes Beach:
not an inviting paradise
On Saturday, May 25,1 received a parking ticket
while parked on the beach access near 65th Street
and Gulf Drive. The reason for the ticket was hand-
written under "other" as parking within 20 feet of an
intersection. I am enclosing a $20 check to cover the
fine, but this payment is in protest. I sincerely hope
your city law enforcement team will consider these
factors before issuing parking citations.
The unpaved beach access may not be consid-
ered a road by many visitors. While there were nu-
merous signs telling how to park and where not to
park, there was not a "No Parking" sign to indicate
that one should not park within 20 feet of Gulf
Drive.
As a frequent visitor to the Island (most of my
family resides in Holmes Beach), I have observed
many crowded holidays where cars were parked il-
legally yet were not ticketed. In fact, I have noticed
business establishments where illegal parking is
obviously overlooked.
I believe I may have been ticketed because my
license plate is from another county and would not
have the opportunity to protest the ticket in person.
In addition, I find $20 outrageous for a simple
parking ticket. The fines are under $10 in beach
communities on the Space Coast.
Getting a ticket like that certainly is dirty play
and if I didn't have family and friends on your Is-
land, that kind of "friendliness" would deter me from
ever coming back and spending the money that your
businesses need in order for your Island to survive.
Please think about the image you portray. I hope you
can see that your actions do not paint the picture of
an inviting paradise.
Noreen Williams, Palm Bay, Fla.

A special thank you
After being told I need a second back surgery and
knowing my medical expenses were taken care of due
to a settlement from a work-related injury, my prob-
lems should be over, right? Wrong. The day-to-day
responsibilities are mine.


Due to circumstances I'd let slip out of my control,
my nest egg had been blown. (Divorce helped.)
Thanks to Rosie Wiley who contacted All Island
Denominations, my problems have been lessened.
There is no way I could ever thank the community of
Anna MariaIsland for the help and support I've been
given.
A special thanks to the people I work with at Key
West Willy's. With the understanding of Al Robinson,
my landlord, I've been able to pay my rent within the
boundaries of our lease.
God bless each and every one of you.
Debby Vibbert and Waco, Holmes Beach

A 'thank you' from
Mrs. Russell's class
On behalf of Mrs. Russell's fifth-grade class at
Anna Maria Elementary, thank you to all of the local
businesses, parents, families and friends for your con-
tributions and support throughout the 1995/96 school
year.
Special thanksto Crabby Bill's restaurant and the
Stanick family for their generous contributions toward
our class trip to Sea World. The support that the com-
munity provides to our children and the school does not
go unnoticed.
Finally, to the boys and girls in this class thanks
for a fun and rewarding experience. You are a special
group of children and should be proud of your accom-
plishments. Keep up the hard work and best wishes to
each and everyone of you as you enter middle school.
Have a safe summer.

THSE WERfE THE AYS
Part 3, Anna Maria Island & the Seminole War, 1835-1842 __
by June Alder _____________


The corvette Vandalia defended West Florida's fishing villages in 1836.

FLIGHT TO

PASSAGE KEY


There were scores of "ranchos"
(fishing camps) strung out along the
west coast of Florida in the early 1800s.
In 1836, the year the Second Seminole
War broke out, the two largest were
William Bunce's in Tampa Bay and
Juan Caldez's-in Charlotte Harbor.
The Connecticut-
born Bunce had been
operating his rancho for Led by theft
only two years and his Indians the r
first year's income had day tracking
Been comparable to that oles for 10i
of Caldez's long-estab-
lished rancho. towardSaras
Situated on a point
at the mouth of the
': Manatee River, Bunce's fishery was
lush with old cocoanut palms and near
to some of the finest fishing grounds in
Florida. It had a fresh water spring and
good harborage. It had been used by In-
dian and Spanish fishermen for centu-
ries. A monstrous shell mound there
_ (where DeSoto National Monument is.
Today) was proof of that.
An army officer who visited
Bunce's place in 1835 described it as the
"most elaborate rancho along the entire
coast." There were well-built palmetto-
: thatched houses for the fishermen's
families and a supply store in Bunce's
comfortable house. Altogether, there
were some 40 buildings, including a
blacksmith's shop, a carpenter's 'shop
and a covered wharf.
Bunce had 30 men workingfor him.
Twenty were of Spanish descent and ten
were so-called "Spanish Indians" (men
whose forebears had been Seminoles or
even Timucuans in the distant past but
now were Spanish by culture).
Nearly all the fishermen had Indian
wives, children and even grandchildren
living with them.
Probably in his early 50s, Bunce
was well liked and trusted by the fishery
people. During the fishing season, from
August to March, he would haul their
catches to Havana in his 45-ton sloop
SEnterprise. In the off-season he worked
out of Key West and sometimes re-
turned to Baltimore .where it was
thought he had a wife and children.
Bunee tried to carry on business as
usual, that spring of 1836, but it was dif-


ficult. Seminole bands continued their
"hit and run" forays and their leader
Osceola continued to outwit and out-
maneuver American Gen. Winfield
Scott in battle.
One day in March, Commander
Thomas Webb of the sloop-of-War
Vandalia came to Bunce
with a worrisome report.
rshery A band of Indians had
nen spent a .been, spotted up-river
the Semi- from Bunce's rancho.
niles south Webb had ordered the
o revenue cutter Washing-
ota Bay ton to take a party of 25
~marines and sailors to in-
vestigate and he desired
to have several of Bunce's fishery In-
dians to go along as guides.
Bunce of course agreed.
'The'marines found signs of an In-
dian encampment traces of dead
fires and many cattle tracks. Led by the
fishery Indians the men spent a day
tracking the Seminoles for 10 miles
south toward Sarasota Bay.
SWebb feared an attack on the fish-
eries of Sarasota or Charlotte Harbor.
So the next day he had the Washington
sail down the coast, again with
Bunce's guides aboard. They saw
nothing suspicious at Sarasota Bay.
But at Charlotte Harbor, at the mouth
of the Myakka River, they spied'a band
of 22 Seminoles and in the distance the
smoke of campfires.
The guides slipped ashore and
came back quickly to report a war
party assembling which outnumbered
the force aboard the Washington.
Back at Tampa Bay Webb has-
tened to preparethe Vandalia to go into
action. Accompanied by a 30-bfoot-
long launch and four smaller ten-oar
craft, the 127-foot three-master set off
two days later with a force of 40 men
and provisions for a 15-day expedition.
But before Webb left Tampa Bay
he advised Bunce, for the safety ofilis
people, to evacuate to Passage Key, a
small island near Egmont Key where
the remaining revenue cutter Dallas
was standing guard.The move was ac-
complished before nightfall.
For Bunce and his people, it was
just the beginning of their tribulations.

Florida Yards, Neighborhoods Awareness Month


What is the price of a lush, green lawn?
Americans spend over $1 billion annually on
pesticides and equally large amounts on fertilizers
and water to keep their lawns in picture-perfect
shape. In addition they spend countless hours weed-
ing, mowing and raking.
The pesticides and fertilizers run off with the
rain and pollute our bays, waterways and wetlands
- the fragile ecosystems that are homes to marine
life, wildlife and native habitats. Watering seriously
depletes a limited state resource.
The Florida Yards and Neighborhoods Program
was developed to address the increasingly serious
problem of stormwater runoff pollution and loss of
native habitats. Stormwater runoff coming from resi-
dential areas is a major source of pollution reaching
Sarasota Bay, Tampa Bay and other Florida water-
ways.
The program enlists homeowners in the effort to
save our bays and waterways by improving land-
scape design and maintenance, reducing the use of
fertilizers and pesticides and conserving our pre-
cious water supplies. Assistance is available in sev-
eral areas.
During the month of June, the public is invited
to participate in various Florida Yards and Neigh-
borhoods activities and events. Participants will
learn about the program and how to develop a
Florida yard filled with native, drought tolerant
plants that reduce pollution and labor and attract
birds and butterflies.
A workshop on "Creating Your Own Florida
Yard" will be-held at the Manatee County Agricul-
ture Center (at the fairgrounds), Kendrick Audito-
rium, 1303 17th Street W., Palmetto, on June 19
from 6 to 8 p.m.

organizations. The phone number is 748-4501.
Another facet of the program is Florida School
Yards, Doubek said. In this program students and
teachers develop and implement environmental as-
sessments of their schools and create action plans to
address the problems. Demonstration projects in-
clude planting native vegetation, removing exotic
plants, improving drainage, creating nature trails and
planting butterfly and vegetable gardens.

projects include Bayshore High School and Braden
River, Tara, Lincoln, Sea Breeze and Wakeland El-
ementary Schools.
Florida Yards and Neighborhoods is coordinated
by the University of Florida County Cooperative Ex-
tension Services around the state. The program is a
partnership of the extension services and the Na-
tional Estuary Programs of Sarasota and Tampa Bay
and Indian River Lagoon, Florida Sea Grant college,
members of the landscape industry and concerned
citizens.

Why does it cost so much
to fix my TV & VCR?

Because many service shops don't repair they replace. It doesn't require much training or skill and it
generates lots of money; after all it's easier to replace the entire circuit board than to locate the faulty part.
At Bob's, you won't pay $200 for an entire 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.

Access to beach area to be

limited by fence


By Pat Copeland
Islander Reporter
Access will soon be limited to the 75th and 77th
Street beach area by a three-foot white picket fence to
be erected by property owner Hugh Holmes Sr.
Hugh Holmes Jr., owner of Holmes Construc-
tion Co. will do the work. Holmes said his father is
responding to complaints by residents that surround
the popular beach area, home of the "cabana club."
"He had a lot of complaints from residents
about people going through there and parties at all
hours of the night," Holmes explained. "We re-
moved the Brazilian pepper trees and put in beach-


compatible sand to clean up the area."
The two streets converge at a beachfront park-
ing lot A cabana at the beach vegetation line was
built many years ago by a group calling itself the
77th Street Cabana Club. However, the entire prop-
erty, including the parking lot and the site of the
cabana club, is private property owned by Holmes.
The vehicle access on 75th Street will be elimi-
nated but a six-foot walkway will allow for pedes-
trian traffic. The 77th Street entrance will remain
as is for vehicle access.
"He's just trying to cut down on the traffic,"
Holmes noted. "It will still remain open to the public."


Cones today, gone tomorrow
These traffic cones, which appeared recently at the 77th Street beach access, were an obvious attempt
! by someone to restrict traffic into the parking lot. The cones disappeared but access to the popular
beach area will soon be limited by a fence to be erected by property owner Hugh Holmes Sr. Islander.

By Bonner Presswood
An anticipated skirmish over chairmanship of the
Island Transportation and Planning Organization
fizzled before it started with the absence of Holmes
Beach Mayor Bob VanWagoner.
Instead, that city's alternate representative, Coun-
cilwoman Billie Martini, came prepared to defend
VanWagoner's position that ITPO chairmanship
should revert to Holmes Beach.
"We're suffering from the actions of past politi-
cal officials," Martini said.
Martini contended that under former Mayor Rich
Bohnenberger's tenure as the head of the Island trans-
portation planning body, the city was only allowed
nine months as chairman from April 1995 to Janu-
ary 1996 and should be allowed a full year accord-
ing to ITPO bylaws.
Besides heading up the local transportation plan-
ning group, the chair of the ITPO also serves as a
voting member of the regional transportation planning
group, the Metropolitan Planning Organization.
Former Anna Maria Mayor Dottie McChesney
took over the chair's rotation in January 1996. Her
brief chairmanship was followed by February's Anna
Maria election where she was defeated by Chuck
Shumard.
Bradenton Beach Mayor Leroy Arnold replaced
Katie Pierola on the ITPO in January after his elec-
tion. Following that meeting, Arnold relinquished his
ITPO appointment to Bradenton Beach Vice Mayor
Connie Drescher.
Martini contended a proposed amendment was
never signed to change chairmanship rotation from
April to January.
With the entire make-up of the board changed, no
one at Monday's meeting of the ITPO could recall the
circumstances of the amendment.
There was no meeting in February and
VanWagoner took over ITPO duties from
Bohnenberger' following the March election. ,
At the May ITPO meeting VanWagoner an-
nounced, "If we aren't named as the chair we will re-


view whether we want to pursue continuing in the or-
ganization."
At this week's meeting, ITPO Chairman Shumard
announced that he believes his chairmanship and re-
sulting representation on the board of the MPO is
proper.
"Bohnenberger gave it up," Shumard said. "It goes
alphabetically by city and unfortunately that's the ro-
tation and I'm staying with it." Shumard said he's been
"getting his feet wet" and he's ready to start getting
money for needed projects in all three cities.
"Our gentleman has been into it it's not a ques-
tion of his getting his feet wet," Martini said of the
absent VanWagoner. "He's been there." She asked to
have Holmes Beach appointed the chair of ITPO for the
1996-97 term.
Drescher said she would be willing to re-evaluate
the chair appointment if the bylaws were not appropri-
ately amended. But, she added, Bohnenberger acted on
behalf of Holmes Beach at the time and Holmes Beach
had its year as chair.
According to Bohnenberger, his term began as
chairman in February 1995. He says the ITPO voted to
change rotation from February to January in order to
have an opportunity for the Island representative to
become chairman or vice chairman of MPO.
Bohnenberger says the date of the one-year
chairmanship term is not in the bylaws and does not
require an amendment. He says it was voted on and
approved. ?
Also, according to Bohnenberger, at his last ITPO
meeting in December, no one presented a motion to
continue his term of chairmanship for a second one-
year term and his chairmanship expired.
He adamantly expressed, "I did not resign. The
bylaws say you can be held over for another year but
the bylaws also say "by motion.'"'
The chairmanship automatically reverted to Anna-
Maria in January, according to Bohnenberger.
ITPO members agreed toresearch the minutes of
past meetings and return to the issue at their next
meeting.

*Sandbar expands July Fourth

celebration


By Cynthia Finn
Islander Reporter
Plans by the Sandbar restaurant to expand its an-
nual July Fourth festivities met with both positive and
negative reactions at the June 11 Anna Maria City
Commission meeting.
Mayor Chuck Shumard said that restaurant man-
ager Gary Wooten approached the city about its cel-
ebration. The city does not have a permitting process
for such events but commissioners plan to review a
possible temporary-use-permit ordinance later this,
summer.
"The Sandbar came to us and we gave them some
guidelines," said Shumard.
Wooten described an event running from noon on
the Fourth until 11 p.m. Plans include an outside bar-
becue under a 40-foot by 80-foot tent, children's
games, musical entertainment and the traditional fire-
works display after dark.
He said the restaurant planned to hire four off-
duty Manatee County sheriff's deputies for traffic and
security, install outside portable toilets and take care
of post-event cleanup. The Anna Maria Island Trol-,
ley has been hired to transport people from parking
areas at First Union Bank and Crabby Bill's restaurant
in Holmes Beach and the Anna Maria Fire District
will provide safety and first-aid service, Wooten said.
After reading the proposal aloud, Vice Mayor Doug
Wolfe said he didn't think the city "could ask for more
than that' if it had a permitting process in effect
Commissioner George McKay wondered if the
Sandbar had contacted any of its residential neigh-
bors.
Shumard and Wolfe both said they didn't know.
Homeowner Judy Adams of Magnolia Avenue,
south of the Sandbar, said, "No, they haven't invited
neighborhood comment."


She called past July Fourth celebrations "a night-
mare" and urged commissioners "to be very careful
about such a big celebration in such a tiny space." She
also said she'd like to see more police and wanted the
city to "make them confine it to their property."
Shumard said, 'They've expressed an interest in
trying to control this and I think we need to give them
a chance."
McKay agreed with Adams about the spillover of
activity south of the restaurant. He said he wanted to
see the event take place but he wanted it "to be com-
fortable for the neighbors" and he also wanted to be
sure there would be enough police.
Commissioner Robert McElheny called the situa-
tion "workable" and said, "The outcome of this may
have a lot to do with what we do with a temporary-use
permit."
Commissioner Elaine Burkly wanted to be sure
"this lovely document is not just a placebo but that they
do follow through."
Shumard said the city would go back to the Sand-
bar with the concerns expressed.
"You've never been there like you said," Adams
said to Shumard. "I hope you all come down and see
what really goes on."
City Attorney Jim Dye reminded commissioners
that without a temporary-use permit in force, the city
has little recourse if the Sandbar fails to follow through
with requested guidelines for the event.
SBy week's end, Shumard said McElheny had
talked with Sandbar management as a city liaison and
the Sandbar agreed to add one more deputy for a total
of five.
'We think they've made a nice effort to meet our
concerns," said Shumard. "We expect that everything
will be OK and we're looking forward to the event."

'Stand For Children' energizes Islanders


By Cynthia Finn
Islander Reporter
On Saturday, June 1,250,000 men, women and
children gathered peacefully in Washington, D.C., to
address the needs of American children in a positive
vein at a rally called "Stand For Children."
Taking their place among those quarter of a mil-
lion Americans from every state in the nation and
every type of background were two staff members of
Roser Memorial Community Church in Anna Maria
-Children's Ministries Coordinator Molly Parks
and Children's Education Coordinator Stacey Bel-
lows. -... .
'"We've been on a high ever since," says Bel-
lows.
The event was originally coordinated by the
Children's Defense Fund, a 25-year-old advocacy
agency in D.C., and its founder Marian Wright
Edelman. By the time ofthe rally, more than 3,700
organizations -from the Girl Scouts to the Young
Men's and Women's Christian Associations had
joined hands to endorse and/or help sponsor the day.
Ten thousand children led off the rally with a
march from Arlington National Cemetery to the
main stage at the Lincoln Memorial. A choir of
2,000 high school students performed, an interfaith
service was incorporated into the day-long event and
speaker after speaker none of whom were politi-
cians stressed faith,, taking responsibility and
Making a commitment atthe local level, beginning
with the individual and the family.-
Bellows and Parks describe "an amazing spirit"
of hope and unity that prevailed throughout day.


Stacey Bellows, left, and Molly Parks of Roser
Church were among 250,000 people who united to
spread a message of hope for American children. In
the background is the march by 10,000 youths.
They didn't witness a single hostile incident and
came away filled with enthusiasm, specific messages
and ideas they can incorporate into their work on the
Island and a new list of resource organizations from
around the country.
"By being there," says Parks, "you felt this en-
ergy and positive power. That we can do it. It is fix-


able. But it will take work and commitment right
here. It has to begin in the family."
"We were encouraged to go back to our commu-
nities and make a difference," says Bellows.
She describes a petition that circulated asking
for a pledge from each signer that he or she would
go home and do something for at least one child.
She speaks of a mentoring program that is al-
ready in the works. "We need to reach each child one
on one."
Parks talks of an overwhelming feeling that "to-
gether we can do anything. I don't see how anyone
could have left there and not go home and do some-
thing."
The speakers ranged from Edelman to ordinary
youths and adults who have overcome adversities.
Parks quotes one youth. "Stand for something.
Stand for something. Or fall for anything."
She says faith was an overriding theme behind
all the messages.
"No one apologized for the place faith has in
their lives," says Bellows.
"They wore it on their sleeves," Parks adds.
The women point to a display board they created
.to try to describe their upbeat experience to the all-
Island youth group. They are also trying to spread
their enthusiasm to adults in formal and informal
gatherings.
"We were deeply inspired to come back here and
spread a message of commitment and service to our
children," says Parks.
"We're not done trying to share this with anyone
and everyone," Bellows says.

Artist Stanick 'on course' east and west


By Cynthia Finn
Islander Reporter
"The people of Sweden love things American," says
artist Peter Stanick.
He stands in his studio, eyeing the one leftover
acrylic-on-aluminum television dimension, pondering its
still blank screen. Perhaps this one is destined to be a cornm-
puter.
While Stanick puts in his six-day work week at the
Longboat Key studio, or relaxes at night with his family
in their Holmes Beach residence, over in Stockholm
"things American" by Stanick are causing a stir at the
Carling Dalenson Gallery.
Stanick and gallery owner Theodore Dalenson met at
one of Stanick's Miami shows in January 1995. The
Stockholm gallery features mostly English and American
artists.
"He had an idea my work would go well in Sweden,"
says Stanick. "It did. It is."
"Sweden has never seen anything like this," Dalenson
said after Stanick's '95 exhibition at his gallery. The suc-
cess of the show prompted Dalenson to invite Stanick to
exhibit at the Stockholm Art Fair in March and to return
to his gallery for a second solo exhibit that ran in April and
May.
Usually Stanick's shows are a grouping of his most
recent works. The recent show in Sweden was unusual in
that each piece was based on a theme of American tele-
vision. And the canvas for this group of works was alu-
minum, all in the shape of a TV.
'"The point of the TV paintings," says Stanick, "is that
television is a universal arid powerful medium."
Certain events, says the artist, like the Oklahoma City
bombing last year, happen here andabsorb us totally in the
media.
-"But I find it strange that it's constant coverage else-
where too. And it was. As Americans I don't think we
realizehow much influence we have, how powerful what
happens to us is elsewhere."
[. And so Stanick has currently chosen the powerful
television medium to reflect in the '90s on the question
pop artists asked in the '60s: Why can't the subject of art
bethethings we see every day?


While most of Stanick's larger-than-life characters come complete with color, this '95 work, "Pick Your Own
Colors," offers an artistic alternative. Reprinted from the book "Peter Stanick, copyright 1996, Carling
Dalenson Gallery/Exit Art .. . -


"To a certain degree," says Stanick, "we see things
every day and they become almost invisible. I try to point
out how ridiculous things are."
To do this Stanick mixes sharp human images, text
and, always, humor. American humor, American art, that
has found its niche in what Stanick'calls "the most Ameri-
can of the European countries."


One piece depicts one of Stanick's comic-book:like
men on the screen. The text: "On today's show; men who "
date their mother-in-laws." Or another thi'miakes fui of
a politician. The text: "He did it for the people." But he's -
winking. 3 '

THE ISLANDER BYSTANDER M JUNE 20, 1996 K PAGE 15 BE


STANICK, FROM PAGE 14
'"The humor? I'm not really sure how it started," says
Stanick. "I just know the humor of things is a great part
of life and I try to concentrate on the humor of art Cer-
tain subjects to me are so funny I can't pass them up."
A 1995 book titled "Peter Stanick," published jointly
by Carling Dalenson and Exit Art gallery of Longboat
Key, contains 30 of the artist's 1993-95 works those
acrylic, contemporary American men and women from
the comic books of Stanick's mind and our every day
experiences.
Mostly from the waist up, or just head shots, they
extend beyond the typical square and rectangular canvas.
Beneath the images are one liners to grab the viewer into
a laugh with Stanick, at ourselves, at himself.
"That's art?, it it's terrible" goes the text beneath a '95
piece of a redhead, her face aghast, a white-gloved hand
pressed to her forehead.
Or there's the '94 couple, arm in arm: "We love the
painting ... it's perfect" And a similar couple the same
year in a piece titled "About Art." She's slapping his face.
"That painting doesn't match our sofa... You don'tknow
anything about art."
Stanick says pop art is an apt description. The book
describes "a reflection of everyday images in a simple
straightforward manner that gives the pop art of the '60s
another dimension."


'Fame and money'
That other dimension has been gaining critical ac-
claim for Stanick since the early '80s. And, for many years
now, his work has been selling, affording the artist that
joint definition of success: "fame and money."
As a child in Pittsburgh, Pa., Stanick knew he wanted
to be an artist "without question." While other lads did
"normal Saturday things," Stanick spent his Saturdays
taking classes at the Carnegie Museum of Art.
"It was rudimentary at first, then more complex," he
says. "By high school it was pretty fo6mal in its scope."
Stnick graduated from Carnegie Mellon University

in 1975, earning a master's degree from Indiana Univer-
sity of Pennsylvania in '77. While in graduate school he
discovered that teaching was a route that enabled him time
also to create, so he then took a position teaching at La
Roche College in Pittsburgh.
He says he was good at teaching, "but then I realized
it wasn't right They say the best teachers are the one who
prepare you to surpass them. I discovered that if one of my
students ever surpassed me, I'd be jealous. So I decided
to concentrate on what I wanted to do: be an artist"
His first show at Pittsburgh's Mendelson Gallery in
1981 "was really well received by the critics," he remem-
bers. "I only sold one or two paintings but critically it was
tremendous."
Tremendous enough to keep him on the track. The list
of solo and group exhibitions through the rest of the '80s
- in Pittsburgh and New York City then included a
1989 solo show at the Salon Fine Art Gallery on Longboat
Key.
That attempt to mix business with the pleasure ofjust
vacationing here was a success. In 1990, Stanick, his wife
Debbie and their young children, Lorraine and Peter,
moved down from Pittsburgh. Debbie opened the Exit Art
gallery on Longboat. To this day her success with and
dedication to the gallery can be measured by the long
stretches she goes without a day off.
Artist Stanick is also no stranger to long work days.
He says he thoroughly enjoys his work and is in the stu-
dio from 9 a.m. to 6p.m. six days a week.
"I'min pretty much like a machine," he says. "I like
patterns it disturbs me when I can't work."
His work has earned him recognition and permanent
spots in private and public collections from Florida to
Chicago and New York's Metropolitan Museum of Art,
from Sweden to Japan.
While the Swedish connection came about because
Stanick happened to be at his Miami show, he pursued a
connection in Japan.
"I have always had a fondness for the Japanese
culture," he says. "I pursued those shows because I
wanted to have a reason to be there. And despite our
sometime economic conflicts, the Japanese, too, still

Three times since 1990 Stanick has exhibited at the
Osaka Triennale gallery. His works are part of permanent
collections at the Osaka Museum of Art and the Osaka
Foundation of Culture.
And because of the success of the Swedish exhibits,
Dalenson is now working with galleries in London and
Belgium, "with good possibilities" for future showings of
Stanick's things American.
Meanwhile, Stanick will finish that one leftover
screen. And then?
"Future paintings are based on current paintings
which were based on past paintings," he says in his book.
Stanick is 43 years old. Is he where he wanted to be?
He is still standing, watching the blank screen that
beckons from its perch on the studio wall.
"As time goes on," he says quietly, "you realize that
your dreams as a child are little bit unrealistic. As a child
I was going to be the greatest artist in the history of man-
kind."
His left hand supports his right elbow. His right fin-
gers smooth his moustache, darkeyes still focused on that
screen.
"As you get older if I can be someone who's im-
portant, I can be happy with that. Yes, I'm satisfied with
where I am, with the step of the ladder I'm on. I'm on
course."

What's in a name?
I'm sure millions of people take art seriously
but I'm a big believer that art should make you
smile.
In 1989 artist Peter Stanick used a gallery on
Longboat Key as a studio. As I perused the works
one day, he worked on a piece that featured
Popeye and Olive Oil.
I stopped to chat and asked if he knew what
Olive's measurements were? "No," he replied.
I shot back, "19-19-19," hoping to amuse him
with her amazing cartoon form.
On return to the gallery, I discovered the
painting was named "19-19-19."
Along with the dynamic three-dimensional
works themselves, other names that caught my
eye included "Seafood Rodeo" (the name for the
buffet at the former Pete Reynard's restaurant)
and "West Side of Gulf Drive" (captioned for a
familiar local phrase in traffic directions).
.Stanick's wry humor is apparent in his work
but his real success in the art business is
chronicled elsewhere in this issue.
Where'd they go?
Last week, foraging for food became more
difficult on Anna Maria Island.
Chez Andre, Ches's Pasta, Eddie B's and
Duffy's were all on vacation for the past couple
of weeks but they'll all have returned by the time
you're reading this thankfully.
Crabby Bill's restaurant closed on May 30
and although they said it was "for the summer,"
the marquis is already heralding the coming of a
new restaurant. In case you were put out by
Crabby, the sign says they're taking applications
at Back Bay Boathouse.

Jet skies lead Sarasota Bay speeders


By Bob Ardren
Outdoor Perspectives
Remember the old advice about dogs, that "it's the
little ones you have to look out for?" The same maxim
holds true of boats.
Mote Marine Laboratory has been watching boat-
ers during the past year as they zip along the waters of
Sarasota Bay to see if they were complying with the
speed-zone rules. According to Mote Senior Biologist
Jay Gorzelany, it's the most comprehensive study of its
kind ever done in Florida.
Some 32,000 vessels were observed and evaluated
by air, boat and folks just standing on the shoreline with
-' a radar gun. Cutting to the chase, about 60 percent of
boaters observed were within whatever speed limit was
posted.
But then things start to get interesting.
For example, dig through the 160-page report and
you'll find that personal watercraft under 12 feet long
are the worst violators of manatee-protection speed
zones.
Only two percent of the yachts over 65 feet long
were in what scientists politely call "blatant non-com-
pliance" compared that to 44 percent of the personal
watercraft registering in blatant non-compliance. No
other group of vessels open fishermen, ski boats,
cigarettes and certainly not sailboats even came
close to personal watercraft in the number of serious
speed violations.
Rental boats also complied with posted limits better
than non-rental boats. So we can't blame the tourists.

A solution?
It's no secret that most personal watercraft are
operated by young men who enjoy going fast. That's
nothing new about young men. (Thank God they're

here maybe making a little trouble rather than being
sent off to die in a war somewhere.)
As was reported recently, state laws passed this
spring and effective in October require boating safety
courses for youngsters under age 16. That age limit
goes up a year every year for the next five years. As
I've opined before, everyone should be required to
complete a safety course before piloting a boat on the
water.
Let's all hope this helps.

Local action
Meanwhile, the Bradenton City Council has de-
cided to continue allowing Jet-skis to operate along the
Palma Sola Causeway, but is looking at some new re-
strictions. Jim Hanson has a story about this elsewhere
in this week's Islander Bystander.

Mote Shark Tourney
Catch, tag and release sharks for research in the
eighth annual Gulf Coast Shark Tournament June 28
through July 8, conducted by Mote Marine Laboratory.
Last year nearly 1,000 sharks were caught and released
by the 95 fishers competing for some nice prizes.
Entry fee is $25 until June 24, $35 thereafter. For
more information or registration, call Ron Blago at
474-3474.
The fishing area stretches from Tarpon Springs to
Cape Sable out to the 100-fathom curve.

King mackerel warning
Don't eat even a little of any king mackerel from
the Gulf of Mexico longer than 39 inches because of
its high mercury level. A little late for our spring
king mackerel run, which is well past, that warning

It's hard NOT to catch fish out there


By Capt. Mike Heistand
Summer fishing is close to its best right now. Tar-
pon are moving on the flats off the beaches. Redfish
and catch-and-release snook are fat and hungry in the
backwater. Grouper fishing is excellent offshore. It just
doesn't get better than this!
Kevin at the Rod and Reel Pier said pier fishers
there have been catching Spanish mackerel, a few red-
fish, mangrove snapper and some sharks at night.
Doug at the Anna Maria City Pier said anglers
there are catching reds and Spanish mackerel in the
early mornings. Later in the day look for a few snap-
per and the occasional grouper.
Lee at Miss Cortez Fishing Fleet said the four-hour
trips averaged 50 head of Key West grunts. The six-hour
trips averaged 60 head of Key West grunts, vermilion
snapper and porgies. The nine-hour trips averaged 35 head
of Key West grunts, porgies and grouper.
Chris at Galati Yacht Basin said there are alot of
schooling dolphin being caught offshore. Farther out,
look for cobia near the offshore reefs and, even farther
from shore, grouper are still being caught.
Lee at Perico Island Bait & Tackle said there are a
lot ofredfish, trout and snook being caught on the seagrass
flats. Some whopper tarpon in the 150-pound range are
cruising off the beaches, and grouper are thick offshore.
Capt. Rick Gross said he's been catching some
very large catch-and-release snook, some up to 20
pounds. By the way, Capt. Rick came in fifth in the
Fishing the Islands tournament.
Capt. Mark Bradow may have the catch of the
week with his 140-pound tarpon. Other action includes
a lot of big trout.

On my boat Magic we've been catching lots of
trout and a few flounder. During the Fishing the Islands
tourney we got a foui thi place with a mess of trout in the
23-, 22- and 21 -inch ranges.
Bill at Island Discount Tackle said fishing is at its
summer peak right now with just about everything
coming to the hook. Look for tarpon, sharks, cobia,
some huge catch-and-release snook, trout and reds in
the bays. Offshore, grouper have moved into deeper
water, but the catches are still excellent.
Capt. Mike Greig said catch-and-release snook
are one of his more popular catches this week, as well
as lots of reds as well as silver kings.
Good luck and good fishing.
