City officials: we can't fund community pool


By Pat Copeland
Islander Reporter
Most officials at last week's meeting of Island
elected officials favored the idea of a community
swimming pool but felt the cities should not fund it.
Holmes Beach resident Ursula Stemm presented a
proposal for the pool and said it could be used for swim-
ming lessons, water aerobics, life saving lessons and the
like. She had gathered over 500 signatures of residents on
a petition favoring the construction of a pool.
Stemm gave cost estimates she obtained from pool
companies and county employees.

Point in Anna Maria for

prizes include Kodak
gifts, a gift certificate to
the Sandbar restaurant
and a "more than a
mullet wrapper" T-shirt
from The Islander
Bystander.


An 800-square-foot pool with a capacity of 26 per-
sons would cost $42,000 excluding electric, sewage
and plumbing costs, she said. A 2,100-square-foot pool
with a capacity for 93 persons would cost $77,000 with
the same exclusions. The additional cost for electric,
sewage and plumbing would be approximately $20,000
to $25,000.
Maintenance costs would be for a four-month op-
eration and are modeled after the south county swim-
ming pool. That pool is open from May 1 to Labor Day
weekend, then only on weekends through October. It
employs three staff members for a seven-day schedule


of no more than 12 hours per day.
Stemm said she estimated wages, chemicals and
electricity at about $25,000 annually. She estimated
anticipated revenues from memberships, daily usage
fees and class fees at $15,000 to $20,000 annually.

Officials question city funding
Stemm said she hoped the Island cities would help
fund the cost of construction and various fees would
take care of annual maintenance.

Final fire


vote July 8

The Anna Maria Fire Commission will have the
final vote on its 1996-97 budget on July 8 at 7 p.m.
At last month's meeting, commissioners agreed to
add a part-time training/safety officer to be shared with
West Side Fire District. Each district will pay half the
employee's salary and benefits.
The position is expected to cost the district $22,000
which will come out of unanticipated tax revenues to-
taling $25,000, Chief Andy Price said.
"The captains have been doing the job but it is in-
terfering with their regular duties," Price explained.
"We have made do for so long and now its time to hire
someone. Sharing the position with West Side is more
cost effective and serves our needs."
Price said safety and training is becoming more com-
plex due to unfunded state and federal mandates and com-
plex regulations due to AIDS, hepatitis and other diseases.
Without proper training and safety procedures, the
district's exposure liability will increase, he said.
"We don't want to get top heavy," Commissioner
Larry Tyler warned of the budget.
Copies of the adjusted budget will be available
prior to the meeting.

Fireworks rekindle 'that childhood excitement'


By Cynthia Finn
Islander Reporter
By day Jim Taylor of Holmes Beach is a marine
contractor. By night, over plenty of weekends and
maybe even in his dreams, Taylor is an entertainer -
Anna Maria Island's own pyroo man," a director of
fireworks over the Gulf of Mexico.
He's the man behind Taylor-Made Pyrotechnical
Entertainment, donating his expertise, service and time
to ensure that fireworks do go off over the Island on the
Fourth of July. And now, for the second year in a row,
they're also igniting on the third of July.
Both shows are courtesy of Island restaurants, the
Beach House in Bradenton Beach and the Sandbar in
Anna Maria.
"Overall it takes about two weeks from my marine
business," Taylor says. "But I love it. It would break
my heart not to have fireworks on Anna Maria Island."
He's the kid in all of us as he talks pyrotechnics.
"It starts when you're a child. Everyone loves spar-
klers and bottle rockets and Roman candles," he says.
"And then the fireworks themselves what grand
entertainment! They stimulate all five senses. The vi-
sual" his hands raise upward "the audio you
can certainly hear the explosions. You can feel the
shock wave. You can smell the powder. And if the
wind is right, you can even taste it."
Twelve years ago a friend, Terry Dorman, asked
Taylor to help him shoot off a show at the Sandbar.
"The smell, the adrenalin," Taylor says with a
broad smile. "It just brought all that childhood excite-
ment back!"
Taylor went back to help the next year and then
Dorman gave up the job.
"I just kind of took it over," Taylor recalls and he's
nowhere near to giving it up.
He holds a class B explosives license from the fed-
eral Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms which
keeps track of his ongoing training. He is required at
showtime to follow all regulations set by the National
Fire Protection Agency and each display must be per-
mitted by the local fire district.

"I would have a hard time convincing our citizens to
support the construction of a swimming pool when we
need so many other things, especially when we have one
of the best swimming facilities in the world the Gulf
of Mexico," Bradenton Beach Councilman Dick Suhre
said. "Have you looked into the possibility of renting some
space from local condominiums or resorts with pools?"
Stemm said it is difficult to learn to swim in the
Gulf with the waves and there are dangers in the Gulf
such as stingrays and red tide in the summer. She said
she hasn't checked the rental possibility.
Holmes Beach Councilman Don Maloney said it
is a mistake to promote a pool based on the dangers
in the Gulf. Holmes Beach Councilwoman Billie
Martini, who came up with the pool idea several
months ago, said she is promoting it for lessons and


"Now you're hot!" Jim Taylor exclaims as he demonstrates an electronic firing system used to ignite his
explosive brand offamily entertainment. Islander Photo: Cynthia Finn.


Most of Taylor's shows are unique because he fires
from a barge out in the water, igniting the mortars elec-
tronically from a nearby boat. The use of the barge adds
immensely to the safety factor, reducing the liability of
firing near crowds and buildings.
Taylor says the barge limits the angle of firing -
most mortars have to be shot straight up but safety
is a constant focus of the pyrotechnical industry.
Taylor doesn't manufacture any of the fireworks he
shoots but spends a good deal of time designing each
show before placing his order with Santori & Sons, a
longtime fireworks manufacturer on the east coast of
Florida.
The Sandbar and the Beach House supply the 30-


minute background music tapes. Taylor says he listens
to the music over and over, timing crescendos, envi-
sioning color and form.
"By the time I place the order, I know exactly how
many green peonies I'll use, when the chrysanthemums
will fit best, how many white spiders, gold flitters and
bombettes we'll shoot, says Taylor.
It's the artistic side of what Taylor calls an ex-
tremely technical operation from start to finish.
"The stuff we use mortars, star mines, rockets
- it's basically simple to put them together, to make
them go up. But then chemistry comes in. What do you
use to lift them better, to mix colors. It does get pretty
technical."
Taylor says his expertise is rudimentary compared
to a lot of pyrotechnicians. As he describes the firing
process he uses, he pauses. "None of this is as techni-
cal as pyrotechnics is getting."

Beyond manual firing
Beyond the displays Taylor creates on the Island
and for other area events, his involvement in the pyroo"
field is increasing.
He belongs to the Florida Pyrotechnical Art Guild
(FPAG) whose 200 members "come from every walk
of life you can imagine," says Taylor with a smile.
"Doctors, lawyers, chemists all playing around in
their garages."
The guild meets once a month, issues a newsletter
and holds an annual Fall Fest "three days and three
nights of pyros getting together."
Taylor says they shoot every night from 6 to 11,
with daytime devoted to the sharing of wares, ideas and
new recipes.
He's also joined the Pyrotechnic Guild International
and is looking forward to attending his first annual conven-
tion this August in Muskegon, Mich. Among the high-
lights will be the ignition of a "super string"- millions of
fire crackers which brought $4,800 in last year's auc-
tion for the right to light the string.
Taylor's home affiliate, FPAG, will be handling the
"opening shoot" It will involve 68,000 square feet of
mortar racks covering two 100-by-300-foot barges and
a 180-by-100-foot strip of a peninsula on Lake Michi-
gan.
Above all, Taylor is looking forward to hobnobbing
with "the best in the world."
He says the French are perfecting computer digi-
talized firing, the Russians have the biggest rounds and
colors that no one's ever seen before, the Italians always
put on the biggest and best finales and the Chinese are
phenomenal with synchronizing the music and the
works.
"These are the folks I really want to get in with,"
says Taylor.
Back down to earth in Holmes Beach, Taylor says
the local shows will sport 8-inch mortars down to 2-
inch comets and he's looking forward to firing both
events with gusto.
"I just love this stuff," he says. "It's not often you
get to be a kid again."


community activity.
A pool would be a hard sell for the residents of
Bradenton Beach, but she likes the idea, Council-
woman Connie Drescher said. She suggested that
Stemm seek grant funding.
Holmes Beach Councilman Luke Courtney fa-
vored the idea of a pool but felt Stemm's figures were
not realistic. He said the pool could not be limited to
use by Islanders, must be larger than Stemm anticipated
and costs for lifeguards, bath houses, land, etc., must
also be considered.
Drescher asked if Martini considered purchasing
property for the site or using the field behind Holmes
Beach City Hall.
Martini said she hoped to use a portion of the field
and also hoped the three cities could fund construction.
She asked officials to take the idea back to their coun-
cils for comment.

Island pool plan pooh-poohed by elected officials

Commission: mayor can hire administrative help


By Pat Copeland
Islander Reporter
The mayor has the power to hire the administrative
help without a charter change, said the Holmes Beach
Charter Review Commission last week.
Commissioners responded to a memo from Mayor
Bob VanWagoner in which he asked them to discuss
whether the position of mayor is full or part time. He
also asked for relief from the growing complexity of
administering the city.
VanWagoner suggested four possible solutions in
his memo: hire a full-time mayor with matching com-
pensation, hire a city manager, expand the role of the
city clerk, or hire an administrative officer. He said he
favored the latter but felt it required a charter change.


The Holmes Beach City Council will discuss
suggested changes to its sign ordinance at its July
9 work session.
Suggestions include:
Allowing for advertising on vehicles such as
the trolley.
Providing for temporary signs or banners for
new or relocating businesses.
Providing for a $25 fine for retrieval of signs
picked up by the city in violation of code.
Providing for Class B (off premise) signs ad-
vertising temporary events such as the community
center auction.
Providing for a permit fee for wall signs.
Councilman Don Maloney asked council to
consider regulating residents who have yard sales
every weekend. He felt they interfere with the
city's licensed businesses.
"A garage sales is a very American weekend
event," he noted. "It's not the regular garage sales
that are a problem but sales at certain houses and


"The issue of whether the mayor is full or part time
amazes me," said Commission Chairman Betty Hill.
"He's not an employee. He's elected. A mayor can
come and go the hours he pleases and vacation when
he pleases."
"How long has it been since the charter was rewrit-
ten as to the responsibilities of the mayor?" VanWagoner
asked. "The responsibilities have expanded, and the char-
ter should reflect that. How many hours a day, how many
hours a week does he spend at the job?"
"The number of hours it takes to do the job," Hill re-
plied. She read from the charter: "He/she shall be respon-
sible to the electorate for the administration for all city
affairs placed in his/her charge by or under this charter."
"Any time you start getting closer to falling into


traveling garage sales. There are a couple of places
that have a garage sale every weekend with stuff
they bought at a garage sale the weekend before.
There is also a traveling Oriental goods garage
sale."
Council Chairman Luke Courtney said council
could add a definition of garage sale to the land de-
velopment code and limit residents to three per
year.
"Without getting money and issuing a permit,
there's no way to determine that," Maloney replied.
"You couldn't ask code enforcement to ride around
every weekend and check off who's having a ga-
rage sale."
The registration and enforcement procedure
could be difficult, City Clerk Leslie Ford told coun-
cil.
"I hate to see us pass ordinances if we can't do
our best to make them work," she noted.
Courtney said he would write a definition for
council to consider.


that category of a salaried employee, you're taking the
spirit and commitment of serving your community out
of why you ran for office," Joy Courtney noted. "That
is one of the most important ingredients in a commu-
nity such as ours."
Bob Jorgensen said the mayor is given the ability to
hire administrative help in charter section 4.05, Power and
Duties of the Mayor, if approved by council.
Courtney said it's also a budget consideration and
the budget requires council approval.
"If the city and legislative requirements change, I
think there's a lot of flexibility in this charter to let you
go ahead and do what you need to," Jorgensen said.
VanWagoner asked the commission to confirm
that opinion in the form of a motion, which it did.

Dock repair estimates requested in Bradenton Beach


Docks apparently will remain at two street ends in
south Bradenton Beach.
Bradenton Beach City Council members have
unanimously approved pursing either repair or replace-
ment of two small wooden docks at Seventh and Eighth
Streets South, instructing the building official to pro-
vide them with cost estimates to bring the structures up
to safety codes.
The council action pleased a dozen or so residents
who requested the city allow the docks to remain last May.
Resident John Merrigan said that the docks have been in
place for more than 40 years and he and his father had
repaired them numerous times throughout that period.
"I feel like we've been used," Merrigan said.
"We've put in free labor in repairing the docks, we did
all the work over the years and now you want to tear
them down because you think they aren't safe."
"You have given us a vested right to use those
docks," resident Sandra Tyner told council members.
She said residents had purchased homes in the area due,
in part, by the proximity of the docks for boat docking
and fishing.
"They were public docks when they were in good
repair, and now that they need to be repaired they are
private docks," she added.
Jim White, a motel owner in the area, said he was
told when he purchased his motel that the docks were
public. "I'm concerned that if you tear the docks down,
the state of Florida may never let us build them back,"
he said.
Resident Walter Petlowany said the dock at Eighth
Street South was safe. He said Building Official Bill
Sanders "walked on it the other day with me, and he's
still here, he didn't fall in. Those docks have never
caused any problems to the city."
Former Councilman Jim Kissick said, "The piers
have been there a long time, and I believe there is a pre-
cedent involved. Why not have the city oversee the
repair of the pilings, the decking, whatever is needed."
Councilman John Kaufmann suggested, and the


other council members agreed, to have Sanders come
up with cost estimates to reconstruct the piers at Sev-
enth and Eighth Streets South and present his findings
to the council at the July 11 meeting.
"Anything we have to do to bring these docks up
to safety standards we should do," Mayor Leroy
Arnold said.
Residents approached Kaufmann, whose district
encompasses the area, and asked for city assistance in
purchasing materials to repair the structures. Kaufmann
said he was told a long-standing city policy was to pro-
vide material to the residents for repairing the piers.


Kaufmann and other city officials inspected the
docks and found them to be in a dangerous state of dis-
repair, with missing planks and crumbling or missing
pilings. At the advice of the city's insurance carrier the
docks were posted with no-trespassing signs while
ownership of the structures was researched and the city
policy on the docks uncovered.
"These are city amenities," Kaufmann said. "It's
like a public park, and if they can be maintained, I think
it would be OK."
Permits were issued to repair the docks in the
early 1980s.

Your right to know
Florida's Sunshine Laws that open government
meetings and records make it easier for journalists to
do their jobs, but private citizens may also take advan-
tage of those laws.
Open records let you find out such things as the en-
vironmental cleanliness of Sarasota Bay, the number of
firearms that have been confiscated at public schools or
who owns a piece of property and how much it's worth.
Some information is essential. Other facts are just
interesting to know. The information is available to every-
one thanks to the First Amendment, related federal free-
dom of information laws and Florida's Sunshine Laws.
The Islander Bystander is joining with other news-
papers this week in promoting the second annual cam-
paign of "You have the right to know," sponsored by
the Florida Society of Newspaper Editors.
For an example of information gained through the
open records laws just turn to The Islander Bystander's
popular "Streetlife" column. The police reports are an
excellent example of information gathered by the news-
paper and equally accessible by individuals through
"your right to know."

Join the parade
This week we celebrate the primary national holi-
day in the United States, celebrated every July 4, the
anniversary of the adoption of the Declaration of Inde-
pendence. Customary festivities include picnics, pa-
rades, band concerts, decorations in red, white, and
blue, and nighttime fireworks displays.
Thankfully, on Anna Maria Island we have it all. And
it is thanks in large part to the Anna Maria Island Priva-
teers. They organize a parade that leads the celebration
from Coquina Beach to Anna Maria on July Fourth where
the party at the Island Community Center includes a fam-
ily barbecue and entertainment by local musicians.
Two restaurants, the Sandbar and Beach House,
offer fantastic firework displays that can be enjoyed by
everyone from the beaches.
It's good, old-fashioned small town fun that many
cities across the U.S. have forgone over the years. But
the enthusiasm still runs high on Anna Maria Island.
We credit the zest and zeal to the independent spirit
of Islanders.
So get out of the house for a few minutes between
11 a.m. and noon and listen for the sounds of cannon
fire coming up Gulf Drive. The "Pied Pipers of Anna
Maria," the Privateers will be leading the kids, the poli-
ticians and all variety of fun-loving Islanders to the
start of the celebration Island style.
Join the parade! Give them a much-deserved hand
and a wave when they pass by.

Newsletter news
It is refreshing to know that those who printed the
anonymous newsletter, "Eye on City Hall" can read.
Too bad they can't understand what they read.
Nowhere did Mayor VanWagoner take credit for
anyone's achievements. He just reported to the citizens
of Holmes Beach what was gong on. A refreshing in-
novation.
Please mayor, keep up on your reports, "From the
Mayor's Corner."

Crack down on personal
watercraft misuse
Recent comments about curtailing personal water-
craft and its effect on Bradenton Beach law enforce-
ment is comical. For years we have witnessed personal
watercraft whipping through and wave jumping among
swimmers off Cortez and Coquina beaches, where all
boats are code-prohibited within 300 feet from shore.
Daily they whip through manatee no-wake areas and
congregate, causing other boaters to avoid the location
they use.
The archaic mindset is not universal. A minority
seem to display a desire to conform to the rights of their
fellow man. But like a teenaged motorcyclist who de-
lights in shooting through traffic at twice the posted
speed, or an equally offensive boom box operator, the
fact is he is uncatchable.
To my knowledge no ticket has been issued since
the 1991 boom box statute was enacted, and holidays
produce hundreds of violations. Such nonfeasance, be
it boom box or speeders of personal watercraft, is an
open invitation to express what may be called a me-
chanical "social gesture" to authority and mankind.
Enforcement? The Bradenton Beach Police De-
partment, as a result of its own lobby and expressed
preference, may exert jurisdiction only to the high
water mark. Unless the Florida Marine Patrol chooses
to bring in a fleet of helicopters, there is almost no
chance of catching a speeding personal watercraft ...
an open invitation to today's youth which we allow to
happen.
So how d1o ,' ca~* resl qt this late date? Misr-


meanors must be witnessed by, an officer. Petition the
Florida Legislature to mandate 10-inch-high, openly
exposed registration numbers on all personal watercraft
like those on commercial fishing boats. Provide a cam-
era with a good telephoto lens to officers who can and
will use them the owner is responsible!
Two years ago, our Florida Legislative Delegation
was offered this solution, but they could not be both-
ered at the time to mandate the identity. One wonders
if they are still oblivious to FMP accident statistics!
Jim Kissick, Bradenton Beach
Island beaches boast litter
in lieu of loveliness
My complaint is regarding litter on our beaches.
Each day my disgust with sloppy people is re-
newed as I run along a stretch of beach and feel com-
pelled to stop every few yards to pick up candy wrap-
pers, soda cans, beer bottles, milk and juice cartons and
certain items that I shouldn't even attempt to carry to
a trash can without plastic gloves.
I am also offended by cigarette butts in the sand.
Our beaches are not a giant ashtray and I hope my let-
ter heightens awareness that cigarette butts are
litter,too!
I think this messy situation would be eased some-
what if hotels and motels would police the beaches
used by their guests. I have observed trash in front of
various guest establishments and left it thinking that
someone staying or working there would dispose of it.
Two and three days later the offensive object is still
there so I grudgingly clean it up.
It would be helpful if there were more trash recep-
tacles available along the beaches. As a taxpayer, I
would not protest some of our tax dollars paying for a
few trash cans and some raking of the beaches.
As an individual I ask others to please stop turning
the shoreline into a garbage dump and to pick up trash.

T THOSE WERE TIE BAYS
_ Part 5, Anna Maria Island & the Seminole War, 1835-1842,
by June Alder


Life was good for Tampa Bay fishermen in the 1830s until war.came along.

SUMMER OF FEAR


The fishermen's families who had
fled to Captain William Bunce's make-
shift camp on Passage Key worked hard
to make it livable. For a while the islet


would be home for
people mostly
women and children.
Everyone helped
to make a clearing in
the woods for their
lean-tos. The fisher-
men built a wharf of
sorts for their fishing
shacks and put up a
lookout tower. Even
though the 700-ton
naval supply ship
Concord with its 20-
gun battery was an-
chored nearby off
Egmont Key, they
were worried about
another Indian at-
tack.
But the enemies
that summer of 1836
were not the Semi-
noles. They were


upwards of 150


were sent ashore from the Concord for
bathing and diversion.
In July there was a barbecue on
Passage Key. But that didn't happen of-
ten. Commander M.P. Mix didn't want


Launches from the Con-
cord and the revenue cut-
ters came every day to take
on water from the spring in
the center of Passage Key.
On the shore under the
protection of a marine
guard, carpenters repaired
worn spars and gunners'
crews cast musket balls.
The fishery women heated
tubs of water over beach
fires and did laundry for
the seamen. Naked young-
sters, brown as pine cones,
swam and dove in the
waters around the ships.


rain, heat, disease and boredom.
The lives of Bunce's people quickly
became intertwined with the military.
Launches from the Concord and the
revenue cutters came every day to take
on water from the spring in the center of
the half-mile-long island. On the shore
under the protection of a marine guard,
carpenters repaired worn spars and gun-
ners' crews cast musket balls. The fish-
ery women heated tubs of water over
beach fires and did laundry for the sea-
men while their naked youngsters,
brown as pine cones, swam and dove in
the waters around the ships. Sometimes
they were allowed to scamper up the
anchor ropes to watch the men at their
ship housekeeping tasks. The young-
sters became the sailors' pets.
As time went by routine duties were
all the crews had to occupy them unless
there were shore expeditions for forag-
ing or passing ships to inspect for
smuggled guns and ammunition. Rarely
was any contraband found. The Indian
raids seemed to have stopped for the
summer so there was no scouting to be
done.
In June the rains came and lashing
storms followed by the misery of mud
and mosquitoes and the searing sun. To
help morale,parties of 50 or 60 men


to encourage fraterni-
zation with the rancho
girls.
Heat and boredom
were taking their toll
by late July. Two Con-
cord crewmen were
thrown into the brig for
mistreating and rob-
bing a man on Mullet
Key. Each was given
21 lashes. Two other
seamen were similarly
punished, one for inso-
lence to officers and
another for starting a
fight on shore.
Scurvy broke out on
the ship along with
dysentery and malaria.
Supplies were running
short. The bread ration
had to be cut to nine


ounces per man.
Conditions were worse up Tampa
Bay at Fort Brooke. It had filled up with
sick and wounded soldiers from the
failed spring campaigns of Gen.
Winfield Scott (he had been removed
as Florida army chief in April). Fresh
troops arrived for a new effort against
Osceola planned by Scott's successor,
Florida territorial Gov. Richard Call.
They came down sick, too.
It was like that in all the forts north
of Tampa Bay typhus, yellow fever
and malaria were taking deadly effect.
Fort King, where the war began with
the assassination of an Indian agent,
was closed down. Other fort closings
followed. And when they emptied out
Osceola moved his people in. By the
end of August every fort to the north
had been abandoned to the Seminoles.
The worse the war news got, the
more nervous the rancho people be-
came.
In May Bunce had pushed off in his
ship Enterprise for Key West. He re-
turned the first of August to find his
people in a state of panic. They had heard
that Osceola was sending Chief Alligator
(he who had carried out the Dade Massa-
cre) with 150 warriors to destroy the
rancho and kill everyone in it.

Residential rental discussion continues in Holmes Beach


Unable to come to a consensus last week, the Holmes
Beach City Council will resume discussions July 9 of its
proposed ordinance to restrict residential rentals.
The draft ordinance sets minimums of 30 days in the
R-1 and R-3 districts and 14 days in the R-2 district. The
R-1AA district (Key Royale) is already governed by a
1992 ordinance restricting rentals to 30 days. The R-4 dis-
trict (mostly south of Manatee Avenue) is governed by a
1993 ordinance restricting rentals to seven days.
Don Howard, owner of the Island Plantation, told
council that while it continues to restrict the hotel/motel
district, it ignores residential rentals.
"Motel owners are people who invested in their
community," he noted. "It's their income. A person
who buys a house to retire to some day lives and makes
an income somewhere else. The rental is a supplement.
Give honest consideration to the motel district."
Howard asked City Attorney Patricia Petruff if
there are any restrictions in the residential districts not
covered by specific ordinances.

"In the rest of the city, there is a prohibition on the
operation of a business," she replied. "If someone
makes a complaint, the issue for the code enforcement
board is does that constitute the conduct of a busi-
ness?It has always been the opinion of our law firm that
renting overnight in that manner is a business because
they're doing it for the revenue."
Jeff Gary of the Silver Sands resort said short-term
rentals are detrimental to the residential districts and asked
the council to enforce the law referred to by Petruff.
"If you're allowing them to do it, you have to al-
low every business that wants to operate out of a
home," he maintained. "I never heard of making excep-
tions for people who break the law to continue break-
ing the law."
Ken Gary, also from the Silver Sands, said motel
owners pay higher taxes and insurance, yet they are
losing business to illegal residential rentals.
"They hurt those of us that have the right provided
by the law," he said.

City Clerk Leslie Ford read a letter from resident
Thomas N. Clough, who was against any restrictions.
Clough made the following points:
Regulating the minimum period of rental is an
arbitrary restriction on the right of the owner to use the
property in a reasonable, responsible way.
Rental restrictions should be tailored to the char-
acteristics of the neighborhood and the way most of the
houses are used there.
Backdating the grandfathering date to Jan. 1,
1995, is unfair to owners who purchased property since
then.
"I will explore every legal way to block these pro-
posed regulations, including joining with other prop-
erty owners in a lawsuit," Clough wrote.
"We're not outlawing rentals, we just want some con-
trols," resident Bob Jorgensen noted. "The proliferation of
short-term rentals is getting worse and worse."
Other residents at the meeting advocated restric-
tions from seven to 30 days to six months.

Mayor responds to committee questions


Bradenton Beach Mayor Leroy Arnold has provided
a written response to 20 questions posed to him by a citi-
zen committee in May.
The Committee for the Continued Improvement &
Unity of Bradenton Beach, a 10-member group of city
residents headed by former Mayor Katie Pierola, asked the
questions.
The questions and Arnold's responses are as follows.
What is the status of the Florida Department of
Transportation improvement program regarding the
drainage problems on Cortez Beach, Gulf Drive
near city hall and at the S-curve at 22nd Street and
Gulf Drive?
Arnold: The Sarasota-Manatee Metropolitan Plan-
ning Organization and the Florida Department of Trans-
portation have us (the Island) on a priority list, but no time
schedule has been scheduled. We need to work together
with DOT, not fight them.
Whatprogress is being made on thepriority list the
city sent to DOT after all the work that was done by the
789 Task Force?
Arnold: MPO-DOT. We are still waiting for the work
to be scheduled by the MPO-DOT. All three Island cities
want this much-needed work to be done by the State of
Florida.
What is the status of the Florida Recreation Assis-
tance Program concerning the next grant cycle for the
Bradenton Beach Fishing Pier?
Arnold: We received funding for the FRDAP grant
last week in the amount of $100,000 for the second-phase
improvements to the city fishing pier.
What is the status on the fourth beach lot at the
beach-access park (Katie Pierola Sunset Park)?
Arnold: Near completion, per City Attorney Alan
Prather. No change in plans yet.
What are you doing to obtain emergency funding to
fix the damage done by Hurricane Opal at the hot spots
on the beach?
Arnold: Manatee County is not seeking funding to fix
damage by Opal Jack Gorzeman [Manatee County
Environmental Management Department] said no "hot
spots" on new beach.
What is the status of the third cycle of the commu-
nity development block grant?
Arnold: The letter came in June 26 confirming that the
$500,000 has been awarded and Clem Dryden, Commu-

Give us an outside design of a new city hall
complex near the library and give it an Island style,
the Holmes Beach City Council told architect H.
Patterson Fletcher last week.
Discussion centered on whether to make the
present city hall building part of the new city com-
plex and where the building should be located.

Using the present city hall
Councilman Ron Robinson, who has hoped it
would be cost effective to utilize the present build-
ing, said he spoke with representatives of the Fed-
eral Emergency Management Agency.
"FEMA says we can attach on to this building
without raising the floor or ceilings as long as the
new building is at the proper elevation and as long
as an attached building does not use an existing wall
to hold itself up," he said. "You would have double
wall where the buildings are joined together. You
could have an entrance from one building to the
other and the roof could be a common roof."
The cost of improvements could not exceed 50
percent of the value of the buildings, and the present
complex of city buildings is valued at $330,000,
Robinson noted.
The city hall building was valued at $62,000
several years ago, Council Chairman Luke
Courtney said. He asked that a current valuation be
obtained.
City Clerk Leslie Ford said that the cost to bring
city hall into compliance with the federal Ameri-
cans with Disabilities Act was estimated at $60,000,
with no additional space for future growth included.
Fletcher pointed out that a double wall would
eliminate windows and a ramp would be required
for handicapped entrance.
"Any time you remodel I feel that you spend al-
most as much as if you built brand new," he said.
"You can't make a silk purse out of a sow's ear."


By Cynthia Finn
Islander Reporter
A Tampa couple seeking to build a house on the
Jacaranda Road land they bought five years ago are
seeking leniency from the city of Anna Maria due
to the lot's "peculiarity."
The vacant lot at 783 Jacaranda measures the
standard 50 feet wide by 100 feet long. However,
the lot lies on a slant from the road, forming a par-
allelogram with obtuse and acute angles as com-
pared to the "normal" rectangular lot with right
angles.
What's the problem?
When the proposed 30-foot-wide by 44-foot-
long house is plotted on a site plan and perpendicu-
lar measurement is taken at the middle of the lot,
both side setbacks come in at 8.5 feet instead of the
10 feet required.
What's the solution?
Gary and Donna Perez appeared before the
planning and zoning board June 24, requesting a
variance from the 10-foot setback which is required
of all new homes elevated two stories above the
garage.
Stressing that they want to do things by the
book, Perez said, "I keep going over and over in my
mind the peculiarity of the lot because of the
angles."
Referring to the "hardship of this lot," he said,
"This house would fit on a normal 50-by-100 lot
anywhere else in the city."
Board Chairman Tom Turner said the city code
calls for the 10-foot setback due to the fire codes.
Fire trucks need the setback in order to angle the
ladder to reach elevated structures.
"The issue is what our codes call for," said
Turner.


Salvage city hall for use as a meeting chamber,
and put city offices in the new building, Council-
woman Billie Martini suggested.
"We can't just rehabilitate this building and not
build a new city hall," Robinson said. "The city
needs a lot more space. The only way to justify us-
ing this building is to do a minimum amount of con-
struction."
"We'll spend more money trying to figure out
how to save this building, than it would be worth if
we could save it," Councilman Don Maloney said.
"We don't need a new city hall complex with a
monument to what it used to be sticking out in
front."

Building location
Martini said the building should be located in the
current parking lot behind city hall facing Marina
Drive.
"If we move the new building back and this
building and the public works building remain, we
cannot get into the parking lot," Fletcher explained.
"Handicapped people have to be dropped off in the
front of the building without having to cross a drive-
way. That's why the building was designed with the
back to the street. If this building is gone, that's the
perfect place to put the new building."
Put the new complex near the library and elimi-
nate 58th Street, said Maloney.
Fletcher said that would separate public works
- with the garage in its present location and offices
in a new building.
In a consensus, Courtney and Robinson agreed
with Maloney. Martini said she would give up the
idea of salvaging the present city hall if the new
building site would be in the parking lot behind it.
All agreed on an Island-style architecture.
Councilwoman Carol Whitmore was on vaca-
tion.
Fletcher will bring his new design to the Aug. 13
work session for discussion.


He asked Perez if they would consider building a
one-story home over the garage, thereby only needing
a 7-foot setback on each side. Perez explained that such
a home would be too small for their growing family.
Mrs. Perez is expecting a child shortly.
Board member Doug Copeland asked, "Is there
any reason you can't build a 27-foot-wide house?"
Perez said that would mean "drastic changes" in
the house design and code requirements for hallway
widths would result in unusually small rooms.
Vice Chairman Jimmy Nichols said, "I really
empathize. He'd end up with skinny rooms. But
there's the problem of the fire code." He said the fire
department might not approve of the plan as it is.
In response to Perez' comments about other city
properties that did not seem to be in compliance with
the setbacks, board member Roland Dreier said,
"There's a lot grandfathered in. But we have a book
we have to live by."
Dreier moved to recommend disapproval of the
variance. Nichols seconded. Turner asked Perez if he
had anything else to say.
"Could I ask for 1 foot instead of 3 feet?" asked
Perez, meaning a setback of 9.5 feet on each side.
Saying the board had to vote on the standing mo-
tion, Turner called for the vote. The vote was 5-to-
1 against the variance, with member John Michaels
dissenting.
Copeland wondered if the board could address
the 9.5-foot possibility.
Nichols suggested that Perez go see Anna Maria
Fire District Chief Andy Price.
"He'll certainly listen to your pleas," said
Nichols. "And then come back to the city commis-
sion July 9. Explain that if you can't get a dollar and
a half that you'll take 50 cents. Because your house
just can't get any smaller and be buildable."

County tourism administrators

meet with Chamber


By Cynthia Finn
Islander Reporter
One dozen accommodation and real estate mem-
bers of the Amia Maria Island Chamber of Commerce
took part in a June 25 presentation of the proposed
1996/97 marketing plan for the Bradenton Area Con-
vention and Visitors Bureau (BACVB).
The 65-page "working copy" is 95 percent com-
plete and will soon be presented for approval to the
eight-member Tourism Development Council (TDC),
said Alexandra Owen, BACVB marketing coordinator.
She was joined by BACVB Executive Director
Larry White. The BACVB is a department of Manatee
County government designed to promote and market
the county as a destination for leisure and business
travel.
It is funded by a 3-percent tourism development
tax that is levied on visitors to the area that stay in tran-
sient accommodations for six months or less. One cent
of the 3-cent tax is put into a special fund that is used
exclusively for county beach renourisment projects.
The advisory TDC includes two Island business
people Ed Chiles, owner of the Sandbar, Beach
House and Mar Vista restaurants, and Barbara
Rodocker, owner of the Silver Surf and Silver Sands
motels.
According to the statistics presented, 1995 tourism-
tax dollars totaled $2.006 million, with Anna Maria
Island contributing about 25 percent. Manatee County
accounted for 37.2 percent, Longboat Key 30.9 per-
cent, Bradenton 6.6 percent and Palmetto .7 percent.
The Island breakdown includes Holmes Beach
$273,300 (13.5 percent); Bradenton Beach $154,700
(7.7 percent) and Anna Maria $67,800 (3.4 percent).
Figures through April 1996 yield similar numbers.
The TDC budget for fiscal year 1996-97 shows
$1.3 million that will be spent as follows: BACVB
marketing, 29.4 percent; BACVB administration, 21.2
percent; Manatee Convention Center, 21.2 percent; city
of Bradenton, 10.5 percent; the Tourism Information
Center near Interstate-75, 10.1 percent; BACVB pro-
motions, 4.8 percent; and tax collector, 2.8 percent.
One of the primary marketing tools, according to
Owen, is the BACVB's "Visitor's Guide," which in-
cludes Island accommodation listings for free and is
updated twice each year.


Grade K or bust
Elaine Moore of Anna Maria was one of 17 5-year-
olds "moving up" June 28 at the School for Con-
structive Play's seventh annual preschool gradua-
tion celebration. "Of course I'm ready for kinder-
garten," said Elaine. Islander Photo: Cynthia Finn.


White said that five years ago there were less than
5,000 annual inquiries about the area, resulting in a
mailed response. Current inquiries number about
95,000 per year.
The guide and national and international media
advertising include a 1-800 phone number. White and
Owen encouraged Island accommodators to take ad-
vantage of leads they can supply from the inquiries.
Several in the audience said they do ask for leads.
White also said there is no longer an annual hook-
up fee to be part of the BACVB's phone-reservation
booking system but there is a 10-percent fee paid by
resorts for a reservation made through the system.
Owen said she often hears from Island businesses
that they don't have the dollars to participate in mail-
ers to the 95,000 inquiries. She said she is working on
a specific mailer for the Island resorts. A fee to be
included is still to be determined.
She also asked resort owners to keep her informed
of what's going on at their properties so the information
can be used in press releases. White asked Islanders to
help with research figures by providing information
about where their business comes from and where it used
to come from but doesn't anymore.
Samples of media advertising call the area
"Florida's quiet side." White said, "We sell the relax-
ation aspects of this area."
Projected media advertising dollars total
$329,500 including $107,200 on national magazines;
$87,300 on national newspapers; $19,600 on travel-
trade publications; $34,700 on international media;
and $80,600 on electronic media, online services, a
U.S. 41 billboard and cooperative marketing.
A $60,100 sales budget includes a $28,050 ex-
hibit cost and a $25,450 travel cost for national and
international trade shows; $5,650 on local "familiar-
ization" tours; and $975 distributing brochures only
at three domestic trade shows and one in Sweden.
Statistics in the plan for the number of annual
visitors to Manatee County including paid accommo-
dations and home visitors show a steady increase
since 1991. The figure for 1995 is 471,417 people
with an economic impact of $212.5 million. Totals
through April 1996 are 267,270 people, $120.5.
"We expect about 500,000 people this year," said
White.

Grant must be used for
transportation
A $43,200 grant to the Anna Maria Island Commu-
nity Center from the Florida Department of Transporta-
tion reported last week omitted the fact that the grant
must be used for the purchase of a van. The Center must
provide funds of $4,800 toward the purchase.
Wrong police officer cited
in drug case
The name of the investigating and arresting officer
was provided incorrectly for last week's story, "Tex-
Mex drug connection stopped in Bradenton Beach." The
officer was Bradenton Beach Officer Mike Klemkosky.

Libraries close for holiday
The Island Branch Library in Holmes Beach and the
Tingley Library in Bradenton Beach will be closed on
Thursday, July 4, in observance of Independence Day.

Ballad of Island premieres July Fourth


Sweet Anna
Like a river in a desert sun
You opened your arms
And I found home
In the summer of my best year
You opened my eyes
When you led me here

If there's magic I think I've found it
In the pounding of your moonlit shores
If there's music it's in the sound
Of your name, Sweet Anna
I'll roam no more

As long as there's dry land
I'll stand by the island

May the beauty that I see
Serve as final resting place for me
May generations yet to be
Sing Sweet Anna Maria

I know about the ways you
Hold fast when they try to sway you
Rain to drown and wind to blow you
And politicians there to show you
Another way to overflow you
Well meant, but they don't know you

As long as there's dry land
I'll stand by the island

Save face, don't erase it
You've so much that is all your own
We are here to help you face it
Sweet Anna, you're not alone

As long as there's dry land
We'll stand by the island

As long as there's dry land
We'll stand by the island

May the beauty that I see
Serve as final resting place for me
May generations yet to be
Sing Sweet Anna Maria

Sweet Anna Maria
0 Larry Rich 1996


By Cynthia Finn
Islander Reporter
"I really do feel this is paradise the place I've
been looking for all my life," 30-year songwriter and
pianist Larry Rich says.
Rich "caught an inspiration" late one recent night
and stayed up until 7 a.m. putting it all down in words
and music. The result is a ballad about our Island titled
"Sweet Anna."
The song was inspired by Rich's enthusiasm for his
new home and by a request by the Anna Maria Island Pri-
vateers to be the opening act at their annual July Fourth
picnic at the Anna Maria Island Community Center.
As of a month ago, Rich performs five nights a week


at Eddie B's in Anna Maria. He was turned on to the op-
portunity by former Island musician Chuck Senrick.
Senrick and Rich had been playing at the same
chain of clubs in Illinois. Senrick declined to return to
the Island at this time, but he told Rich about the job
- and the place.
"Chuck was completely right about Anna Maria
Island," says Rich. "I just love it!"
"I thought I'd write a little love song for the Island
and I'm really pleased with the result," says Rich.
"This song says a lot about how I feel and what this
Island has sparked in me already."
"Sweet Anna" will get her debut performance be-
tween noon and 1 p.m. Thursday on stage at the Center.

The Island Poet
Does the Fourth of July mean very much to you,
Do you display the red, white and blue?
Many a time I've seen grown men cry,
As they watched our flag go passing by.
What was their loss? What was their care?
As they watched our country's flag flying there,
Thousands of men have given us their all.
To make sure this flag would never fall,
So why don't you spend a buck or two?
This I think is the least you can do.
And buy a flag for your place and hang it there,
To show these men that we really care.
Bud Atteridge

An April issue of The Islander Bystander was party
to the proceedings between the Kellys and the chef of
luxurious Dromoland Castle. Islander Photo:
Courtesy of Pierrette Kelly.

Kellys research
Irish cuisine
Pierrette and Paul Kelly of Holmes Beach took on
a special mission during their spring vacation in Paul's
native Ireland. They researched menus of famous res-
taurants and sought tips on preparing Irish cuisine as a
follow-up to the Anna Maria Island Community
Center's successful spring auction benefit.
Pierrette is the Center's executive director. She and
Paul donated an Irish evening and dinner at their home as
one of the auction items. Island couples Charles and
JoAnne Lester and Trudy and Stewart Moon entered into
a friendly bidding war, agreeing finally to share the affair
for $400 each. The dinner is being planned for the fall.
Among the menus the Kellys found that may offer
some gourmet dishes for them to replicate was that of
the Dromoland Castle, New Market on Fergus, County
Clare.


Alwyn 'Al' Gray
Alwyn "Al" Gray, 83, of Holmes Beach, died
June 22 in Manatee Memorial Hospital.
Born in Providence, R.I., Mr. Gray came to
Manatee County from Glen Ridge, N.J., in 1978.
He was a retired naval architect for Exxon Corpo-
ration in New York.
He is survived by two daughters, Pamela G.
Corcoran of Yuma, Ariz., and Penny Liles of
Fresno, Calif.; one son, John of Costa Mesa, Calif.;
one brother, Roger Gray of Glastonbury, Conn.;
five grandchildren and two great grandchildren.
Services will be at 2 p.m. Wednesday, July 3,

ating. Memorial donations may be made to the

Funeral services for Mrs. Irene M. Guentz, 85,
of Arcadia, La., formerly from Holmes Beach,
were held at 10 a.m. Monday, June 17, at Rose-
Neath Funeral Home Chapel in Arcadia. Rev.

in Kansas City, Mo. She died Friday, June 14, in
Homer Memorial Hospital.
Survivors included two sons, John and his wife
Missy of Maitland, Fla., and Louis of Mt Prospect,
Ill.; a daughter, Irene Atteridge and her husband


Situated on a 373-acre estate, Dromoland's history
dates back to the 16th century when the estate was ac-
quired as the seat of the O'Brien clan, direct descen-
dants of Brian Born, high king of Ireland. Today the
castle is regarded as one of Europe's top luxury hotels.
Dromoland holds a personal history for Pierrette
and Paul. In 1978, four days into Pierrette's new job
there in management and advance reservations, Irish
matchmakers introduced the American girl to her fu-
ture husband.


Bill of Arcadia; a brother, George Smith of Rolling
Meadows, Ill.; a sister, Hilda Grube of Carol Stream,
Ill.; eight grandchildren and 11 great-grandchildren.

Leda B. Lydick

THE ISLANDER BYSTANDER M JULY 4, 1996 0 PAGE 19 [iIj


Two.cents worth
On July 10 the Bradenton City Council will take
another step toward regulating boats and other water-
craft on the Palma Sola Causeway.
The public hearing begins at 8:30 a.m. at
Bradenton City Hall, 500 15th St. W. in town.
The Bradenton Council first considered restricting
watercraft from the south side of the causeway but has
settled on creating no-wake zones on both the north and
south shore of the inlet that is severed by Manatee Avenue.
Bradenton City Councilman Gene Gallo has said
the real problem is alcohol and that no-wake zones
are not the answer to preventing injuries from personal
watercraft.
The causeway has no restrictions against public
consumption of alcohol and since restrictions apply on
the beaches on Anna Maria-- except on private prop-
erty the causeway has increased in popularity.
It doesn't matter what age you are, whether it's a
family picnic or college reunion, a cold beer just isn't
allowed on the beach or bayfront. But beer drinkers
have a friend in Mayor Bill Evers. He says banning
alcohol won't solve the problem. He wants enforce-
ment if people are unruly.
The hearing promises to offer two sides to the alco-
hol argument and probably two sides will show up to
argue over the use of watercraft along the shoreline.


The proximity of the causeway, connecting Anna
Maria to the mainland and the high volume of use
by young people, folks with pets who like the beach,
and the usual "gawkers" should lend itself to a few
interesting opinions.
Political observers on the Island should take note
of how Bradenton handles the situation in our "back-
yard" or the Island "gateway" depending on your
point of view and the direction you're heading.
It's possible that by virtue of the restrictions on
Anna Maria we've pushed alcohol, dogs and watercraft
onto the causeway and we're contributing to the prob-
lems there. And certainly the large volume of people in
the tiny space available is contributing to the problems.
Sometimes less is more. Fewer restrictions on pub-
lic beaches would make a lot of people happy.
People should put their two cents' worth in where
it counts.

Warranty work
A friend working for Honeywell, a biggie in the
computer industry, passed along a funny recently. She
says it falls in the
"Darwin" category but
it is reported to be to-
tally true from the
recorded records of
Novell NetWare sys-
tems support.
Caller: "Hello, is this
tech support?"
Tech rep: "Yes, it is. How may I help you?"
Caller: "The cup holder on my PC is broken and I
am within my warranty period. How do I go about get-
ting that fixed?"

part of a promotion at a trade show? How did you get
this cup holder? Does it have any trademark on it?"
Caller: "It came with my computer. I don't know
anything about a promotion. It just has '4X' on it."
At this point, the tech rep had to mute the caller.
He couldn't avoid laughing. The caller had been us-
ing the load drawer of the CD-ROM drive as a cup
holder and it had snapped off of the hard-drive case.
And you were wondering where you could get
one for your computer, weren't you?

In transit
We're done. We finally accomplished the impos-
sible. We moved.
It may be harder to move an office 100 feet two
doors over than it would be to move it cross country.
That's what we decided anyway.
But you'll find us in our new quarters with every-
thing pretty much the same. We've had lots of com-
pliments on the our flooring. We put six coats of paint
on the concrete and we'll be pleased with it too if it
ever dries and the paint smell subsides.
The new office is bigger almost twice the size
of the old office where D.Coy Duck's kitchen and
Chez Andre's wine room took up the back half of the
building. We have so much room we haven't figured
out what to do with it.
Except, we plan to grow into the space at 5404
Marina Drive and just keep going.

Let's all be safe and careful this weekend


By Bob Ardren
Outdoor Perspectives
Grab your socks and throw 'em in a drawer because
it's the Fourth of July. The entire circulation area of The
Islander Bystander is flooding with people, so lets relax
and try to enjoy it.
No matter where you go locally, especially on or near
the water, it's going to be crowded this weekend. Whether
you're boating or swimming or just catching some rays on
the beach, take the necessary precautions and please be
nice to our visitors.
After all, they don't get much time in our paradise.
If you're planning any boating this weekend, take the
time to carefully check out your gear. All of the various
branches of the water cops will be out in force this week-
end, so you should expect to be stopped and checked.
Especially important will be your new boat registra-
tion, since the old one expired last Sunday and you can be
sure officers will be looking for violators. And don't for-
get to check your running lights as they're especially im-
portant when dusk approaches with the large number of
boats expected on the water this weekend to catch the fire-
works shows.
Let' all be safe out there this Fourth, OK?

Longboat ferry?
I have to pass along a friend's idea. She recently vis-
ited Amelia Island and, enroute, took the St. John's ferry
running from Mayport to Amelia Island Beach. It signifi-
cantly shortened her driving time and was a lot of fun.

"Why not a Longboat ferry?" she asked. "Now that
we know a mid-key bridge from Longboat to Sarasota is
impossible, why not a ferry to 10th St. in Sarasota? It's one
answer to the traffic problems Longboaters complain
about."
I think it's a great idea- but then I'm the person who
believes the new Ringling Bridge should be a tunnel.

McChesney's shell rule in place
Even though it covered all of Manatee County effec-
tive July 1, I prefer to think of the new local live shell regu-
lation as "Dorothy McChesney's rule." To its credit, the
county saw the benefit of a rule McChesney originally
proposed just for the Island.
In case you've been away, new regulations forbid
taking more than two live examples of basically any in-
edible species of shellfish, including sand dollars and star-
fish.
There's no restriction on taking dead shells or edible
creatures such as oysters, coquinas or clams. There are
plenty of other rules concerning edible species, especially
where and when you can take them and it takes a real
fool not to follow those.
So here's a tip of the hat to Dorothy for showing us
all you really can change things if you're willing to work
hard and long enough. And it helps if your cause is just.

Net ban anniversary
Florida's inshore ban of large commercial fishing nets
is a year old this week. Everybody has their own opinion
of its effects, but some things are clear.
According to the Florida Department of Environmen-
tal Protection, the mullet catch in the central-southwest
Gulf area during the prime October through January sea-
son dropped 84 percent this year over last year. Mean-
while, the market price of mullet has basically doubled.
The Florida Marine Institute in St. Petersburg says
there are 11,139 active commercial fishers in Florida now
compared with 14,118 two years ago and down from


13,817 last year. State-licensed seafood dealers are down
to 1,079 from 1,191 last year.
Clearly, none of this bodes well for the commercial
fishing industry.
Sport fishers, on the other hand, seem to be unani-
mous in saying their catches are up, although the Marine
Institute says there is no scientific evidence the net ban has
produced that effect.
See you next week.


Nighttime events
at museum
The South Florida Museum and Bishop Plan-
etarium, 201 10th St. W., Bradenton, now offer
evening star shows every Friday and Saturday at
7:30 p.m. in the planetarium theater. The series
"Skies Over South Florida" features star shows
about the night sky followed by a tour of the cur-
rent sky.
The star show for July and August is
"Firefall," a presentation featuring our confirmed
visitors from outer space the meteors and space
debris that burn up in our atmosphere to create
shooting stars.
Admission to the star show is $3 for adults,
$1.50 for children 5 through 12 years old and free
for children 4 years and younger (with a paying
adult) and museum members.
At 8:30 p.m. Friday and Saturday the observa-
tory is open (weather permitting) as part of "The
Tonite Show." The program examines the interest-
ing objects observable in the night sky followed by
a chance to view for oneself. Admission is $1 per
person or is included with admission to the "Skies
Over South Florida" star show.
For the music schedule and other information,
call 746-STAR.

Big stuff this week:
By Capt. Mike Heistand
Tarpon schools remain plentiful off the beaches
in the Gulf, with Capt. Mark Bradow reporting
catching a 140-pounder last week. In the backwater,
redfish season is in full swing with reports of more
than 30 fish being caught on some of the charter
trips. Trout, pompano and snapper fishing is also
very good right now.
Karen at the Rod and Reel Pier said pier fishers
there have been catching a few oversized redfish, pom-
pano, snapper, mackerel and a few sharks at night.
Gary at the Anna Maria City Pier said anglers
there are catching some big reds and a few catch-
and-release snook, some 18 inches long.
Reports from the Bradenton Beach Fishing
Pier include lots of blue crabs, a four-foot nurse
shark that was released, black drum, sea bass, whit-
ing and pompano.
Madilyn at Miss Cortez Fishing Fleet said the
four-hour trips averaged 135 head of Key West
grunts and sand perch. The six-hour trips averaged
120 head of Key West grunts, vermilion snapper and
red grouper. The nine-hour trips averaged 100 head
of lane snapper, grouper and mangrove snapper. the Gulf- he landed a

The red, estimated
to weigh 28 pounds,
was released.







been excellent with the full moon, grouper fishing
remains fair and there are lots of amberjack a little
farther out in the Gulf.
Capt. Mike Greig said he's getting lots of hook-
ups of catch-and-release snook. Capt. Mike has the
catch of the week in a 7 1/2-foot-long hammerhead
shark. He's also catching some mangrove snapper up
to four pounds in size.
Good luck and good fishing.
