Cortez fire may turn into 'inferno'
By Jim Hanson
"Spontaneous combustion" is about to turn the
Cortez fire station controversy "into an inferno," says
Dr. Mary Fulford Green.
If the matter isn't settled at a meeting next Wednes-
day, Sept 4, she will "go to the sheriff and ask for a full
At issue is the ownership and use of the small sta-
tion built by the people of Cortez nearly 40 years ago
and staffed by volunteer firemen. Dr. Green wants it
used as a community center and for the after-school
children's program she directs. Others want it to stay
in service as a fire station.
It now houses a fire engine, which Dr. Green says
has been called out only once the first six months of this
"Tony was just the tip of the iceberg," she said,
referring to Claude "Tony" Bailey, Parrish fire chief
who has admitted he took $3,600 in the Cortez volun-
teer department funds in the early 1990s. He was an
inspector with the Anna Maria Fire Control District
then and oversaw the Cortez funds.
He said he wrote four checks to himself but didn't
regard it as theft "I borrowed it." He said he had se-
vere money problems then, with a sick mother, a son
with medical problems and a mortgage that the bank
was threatening to foreclose.
Cortez volunteers at a meeting in early August
decided to let him repay the money, and he said he has
dipped into his retirement plan to repay and hopes to
have it all paid off by the end of the year.
Dr. Green expressed regret that Bailey got into
volunteer funds in his difficulties and said "the family
would have come up with money for him if we had
known." He is married to a niece of Dr. Green.
Final disposition of his case and the status of his
job in Parrish were still undecided early this week.
The station controversy began when the Cortez
volunteer department decided to dissolve itself and dis-
pose of its assets, only to discover it had been involun-
tarily dissolved seven years ago when it failed to keep
its paperwork and fees current with the Florida Secre-
tary of State.
The Cortez volunteers subsequently merged with
the Anna Maria Volunteer Department, and its presi-
dent, Jane Maddox, says the Cortez department has
been reinstated and incorporated again.
Dr. Green says otherwise. It is up to Cortez people
to run their own department and their own affairs, not
have outsiders take over, she said. Some 20 Cortezians
signed up to reorganize the department, she aid.
A paid member of the Anna Maria department,
Jack Williams, lived in the station and Dr. Green
charged that he failed to pay part of his rent and she
suspected the Anna Maria department of "covering up
for one of their own."
Maddox said William got behind in his rent, all
right, but as of now "the rent has been paid in full."
The Cortez department originally decided to turn its
building, valued at $110,000, over to the Florida Institute
for Saltwater Heritage, but subsequently rescinded the
offer on advice of an attorney, Maddox said.
At Dr. Green's request, Florida Sen. John McKay has
asked the secretary of state to look into the department's
standing, and expects a reply momentarily.
She has talked with the state attorney's office, she
said, and found some interest there. She foresees taking the
whole thing up with the sheriff if it isn't settled soon, and
even is considering hiring an attorney to pursue it.
The Anna Maria Volunteer Fire Department will
meet Sept. 4 at 7 p.m. at the Bradenton Beach volun-
teer station and "I am sure this matter will be dis-
cussed," said Maddox.
Nobody is sure what happened and the law's
dreadful penalties won't be invoked, but only half a
dozen of a nestful of turtle hatchlings made it to the
Gulf from a Holmes Beach nest.
Suzi Fox, sea turtle conservation permit holder for
the Island, said a woman passerby saved some
hatchlings but inadvertently disturbed any evidence
that could have been used in court.
Apparently one of the Martinique's two swimming
pools was being pumped onto the beach and the flow was
enough to wash out the sea turtle nest there, Fox said.
A guest at a nearby condo happened by, Fox said,
:and .: .' l t,1 right things, at first anyway." The
woman called the Florida Marine Patrol, then gathered
up the six or seven hatchlings she could find alive and
carried them to the Gulf, where they swam away.
But she had moved dead hatchlings in order to get
at the live ones, Fox said, and that contaminated the
evidence. That, and the fact that the egg shells were
scattered by the time Fox and other volunteers arrived.
They found 52 dead hatchlings.
Turtle Watch had put in the customary warning
stakes to keep people away from the nest and was
aware that hatching would take place some time soon.
It apparently did, and the babies were waiting for the
cool of night to cross the beach to the sea, Fox said.
Rob Sanger of Galaxy Pool Service, Bradenton,
said later that the pool's float valve apparently had
malfunctioned the night of Aug. 18 and when he ar-
rived to service the pool the next day, the pool had
overfilled. He turned on the pump to drain off the sur-
plus water, he said.
"Nobody notified me of any problem," he said.
"It's news to me."
John DeFazio, longtime turtle protector on the Is-
land, said his understanding is that "it's perfectly legal
to drain pool water into the Gulf, though that's sup-
posed to be changing soon."
Fox said since no one saw the incident taking place
and there was no dependable evidence, she believed
there would be no charges and no penalty.

Two former mayors move off Island
Former Bradenton Beach Mayor Katie Pierola and
her husband, Gil Sr., who moved to northwest
Bradenton a few months ago, are being followed off the
Island by former Anna Maria Mayor Dottie
McChesney and her husband, Roy.
McChesney said after the death in April of her
step-father, Dudley Mercer, she and Roy made the de-
cision to move to Parrish.
"I was not mayor anymore, so it was not practical
for us to stay," she explained. "We wanted to make a
fresh start. It's a new challenge. Every 10 years or so
it's good to shake up your life."
The McChesneys will be moving to the Gardens on
Aug. 20, where their new home looks out onto a pas-
ture filled with cows and horses. Meanwhile, they are
trying to sell their present home in Anna Maria.

The Anna Maria Capital Improvements Commit-
tee continues to develop a five-year plan to be pre-
sented to city commissioners on Set. 5, Chairman
Jimmy Nichols said last week.
The plan includes bike paths, sidewalks, drainage,
roadways, bridges and a new maintenance building. All
recommendations are tentative and may change prior
to the presentation.
As in Holmes Beach, the city is slated to get bike
lanes in the year 2000, according to the Florida Depart-
ment of Transportation's five year plan. However, the
city can advance the funds to the DOT to begin the
project now and be reimbursed when the funds become
$124,800 in fiscal year 1996-97 for Gulf Drive
from the Holmes Beach city limits to Pine Avenue.
$114,600 in fiscal year 1997-98 for Crescent
Drive from Pine Avenue to Magnolia and North Bay
Boulevard from Pine Avenue to North Shore Drive.
$119,700 in fiscal year 1998-99 for North
Shore Drive from Pine Avenue to North Bay Boule-
An alternative route from Gulf Drive down Palm
Avenue to North Shore Drive and from Palm Av-
enue to Pine Avenue may be included in the 1996-
97 plan for an additional $60,000. Funds will be
taken from and returned to the city's reserves,
Drainage is divided into two categories equip-
ment and improvements. Equipment includes $86,774
in 1996-97 for a dump truck, a pickup truck and a back-
hoe and $16,392 in 1998-99 for a pickup truck. A grad-
ing tractor at $25,000 may be added.
Division of funding for improvements has not been
determined yet. Improvements will follow the plan
devised by the Southwest Florida Water Management
District and include:
North Shore Drive, Rose Street, Holly Road Basin.
North Shore Drive, North Bay Boulevard Basin.
Crescent Drive, Lakeview Drive Basin.
Magnolia Avenue, Spring Avenue Basin.
South Drive, South Bay Boulevard Basin.
Willow Street Basin.
Island Baptist Church Basin.
Division of funding for sidewalks has not been
determined; however, $163,644 is recommended over
five years. Projects include:
North Shore Drive from Willow Avenue to Hibis-
Jacaranda Road from Cypress Street to North
North Bay Boulevard from Hibiscus Avenue to
North Shore Drive.
Gladiolus Street from North Shore Drive to Cres-
The south side of Magnolia Avenue at the com-
munity center to Maxine Street.

McChesney said she will continue her interest in
county affairs and plans to focus on illegal dumping of
Spring Avenue from the 400 block to South Bay
Magnolia Avenue from Maxine Street to South
Coconut Avenue from Gulf Drive to North Shore
Division of funding or projects for roadway im-
provements have not been determined.
Rehabilitation is planned for the city's two
humpbacked bridges. The Metropolitan Planning
Organization has accepted the bridges as a project,
but they have not been placed in the DOT plan for
funding. If they are funded, committee members
may recommend the same process as with the bike
paths advance the money to the DOT and be re-
imbursed when the funding is available.
Engineering plans on both bridges are complete,
Nichols said. The North Bay Boulevard bridge
would need $79,500 per year for two years and the
Crescent Drive bridge would need $71,000 per year
for two years.
The committee plans to recommend that the city
purchase a pre-fabricated steel building to house
maintenance vehicles, Nichols said. The building
would be placed on city hall property, freeing up
more parking for the historical museum at the cur-
rent maintenance area on Pine Avenue. The 30-foot
by 60-foot building would cost $64,500.
garbage by cruise ships in the Gulf of Mexico.
"I care about this place and will continue the work I
began to protect the beach and the water," she said. "We
will keep in touch with our Island friends and travel back
and forth. It's only 45 minutes from the Island."
The Pierolas, on the other hand, will continue to
work on the Island at their family business, the Catalina
Resort, said Pierola.
"The reason I didn't run for mayor again was be-
cause I made a decision to focus on the business," she
explained. "I dedicated myself to the community for
many, many years and now it's time to get our house
The Pierolas came to the Island 25 years ago and
owned an eight-unit motel in Holmes Beach for three
years before building the Catalina, she said. Tia Lena,
a restaurant atop the motel, was later added.
While Island preservation
and beautification remain
important issues within
the community, the Key
Royale Resident Owners
Association has taken
action. With professional
landscape designs pro-
vided by resident Mary
Stealey, the Association
hopes to adorn Key
Royale Drive with land-
scaping along each
median's end cap, like the
one shown here. "We're
off to a good start, said
Don Maloney, president
of the association and
Holmes Beach city
council member. "This is
going to be an expensive
project, but well worth
every penny. We have
already raised $3,000
which came directly from
the residents." Donations

Mike Sole of the Florida Department of Environ-
mental Protection confirmed that. He wasn't happy
with the incident, but said it "might help property own-
ers be more aware that their actions can have unex-
pected results." Sole, biological administrator with the
DEP, said that in most violations the property owner is
routinely held responsible.
Rod Gaffney, maintenance supervisor at the
Martinique, said that before he went on vacation Aug. 9
someone had found one hatchling from what he had as-
sumed was that nest, and they put it into the Gulf. They
searched for more babies, he said, but found none.
The only drainage from the condo to the Gulf could
be pool water feeding into an old system that was aban-
doned long ago, he said.
Fox said penalties for disturbing sea turtle nests can
be horrendous: Federal civil fine of $25,000 or crimi-
nal fine of $50,000 and/or a year in prison, and sepa-
rate punishment under Florida law of a $500 fine for
the first egg or hatchling destroyed or taken and $100
for each additional instance, plus 60 days in jail.

Lower tax rate offered in Bradenton Beach
A lean budget that rolls back property taxes but still
has a few service extras is proposed in Bradenton Beach.
The lean part comes from the proposed millage of
2.7597 for the next fiscal year, down from the 1995-96
rate of 2.8034. A mill is $1 for every $1,000 of assessed
value of a home after the exemption for homestead.
For Bradenton Beach homeowners, the proposed
property tax for a home valued at $133,000 after cal-
culating the homestead exemption is $298. That's an
increase of about $18 from 1995-96 levels.
Revenue and expenses for next year are currently
estimated at $1.416 million, up from the 1995-96 bud-
get of $1.356. Much of the increase in revenue is due
to increased value of property in the city and more
money derived from other revenue sources, such as
sales, gasoline and cigarette taxes and franchise fees for
electricity, telephones and cable television.
Not included in those revenue figures is the state
Community Development Block Grant for $500,000
for improvements around Bridge Street or the $100,000
grant for fishing pier improvements.
More "extras" in the budget lie in the funds derived
from the one-cent sales tax funding, estimated to be
$122,000 for next year. Projects earmarked to receive
funding from that money include $6,000 for roller shut-
ters at the Tingley Library, $5,000 for improvements at the
city garage, $20,000 for street paving, $34,000 for police
cars and $60,000 for city hall renovations.
Citizens will get a chance to voice their thoughts
about the budget at the first public hearing on the mat-
ter, scheduled for Sept. 3 at 7 p.m. at city hall. The fi-
nal budget hearing will be on Sept. 10.
Among the expenses in the city for the 1996-97
fiscal year include:

Five-year Holmes Beach budget comparison
By Pat Copeland
According to calculations by City Treasurer Ann
Mitchell, Holmes Beach residents may pay $568,754
or 41 percent more for city services in 1996-97 than in
Fiscal year 1992-93 was the first time the millage
was raised to 1.75, and it has remained at that figure
ever since. Revenues generated by that millage rate
were $1,548,347 in 1992-93 and are anticipated to be
$1,814,995 in 1996-97, a possible increase of
The city saved $158,000 in 1992-93; therefore,
nothing was required from the reserves. The reserves
could be tapped for $143,187 in 1996-97, if the pro-
Figures for revenues were ready for the Anna
Maria Commission's first budget meeting last week,
but many figures for expenses must wait until this
week's budget meeting.
Ad valorem taxes are $358,834, an increase of
$24,162 over this fiscal year. Total revenues are
$936,703, an increase of $45,869. The amount to be
transferred from reserves has not been determined.
On the expense side, salaries are up approximately

Mayor Bob VanWagoner noted that the 1996-97
figure from the reserves includes Cost of Living Ad-
justment raises, three new employees, one-time dona-
tion of $5,850 for the community's center's new gym
floor, a $10,000 increase in beautification and increases
the stipend for council members who are elected next
The city's current reserves remain at $1.3 million.
Increases in operating budgets over the five years are:
$12,600 with $16,000 being added for an administra-
tive clerk in public works. Overtime is down $1,500,
while part-time help is down $4,000.
One large increase is shown in expenses for city
building improvements, recreation and maintenance
from $2,000 this year to a proposed $22,000. Public
Works Supervisor Phil Charnock said the increase
includes some line items that were in other areas of
the budget in previous years such as carpet and fur-
niture for city hall.
The increase also includes stucco work for the his-
torical museum, repairs to the Island Playhouse, side-
walks and parking for the community center, picnic
tables and shell walkways at some beach accesses and
continuing the beautification project at Bean Point.
Public safety or money paid to the Manatee County

"Incensed over the way the First Lady has been

women have formed a local chapter of the fan club just
in time for the White House invitation.
Its membership includes names well known on the

delegate to the Democratic National Convention;
Germaine Sava of Perico Bay; Joanne Schneider of
Cerwin launched the local club after her sister

sometimes gotten rough treatment Members there have
been subjected to "really nasty, vicious" comments and
her home has been damaged on two different nights, said

Our suggestions for
With the Democratic convention this week, the
Republican nomination just completed and primary
election day Tuesday, we're just full of politics
these days. 'Tis the season.
So we offer some of our suggestions and recom-
mendations for poll-goers next week. Please re-
member to vote regardless of your party affiliation
- there are non-partisan races on Tuesday's ballot.
For Florida House of Representatives District
68 Republican ballot, we endorse educator Lois
Gerber, most because incumbent Mark Flanagan
prov-d himself to be what we had feared in his first
term as a state representative, an empty suit.
We find it hard to endorse a candidate who
showed complete ignorance in his statement regard-
ing the net ban two years ago, saying, "I'm for the
net ban because I'm against abortion and therefore
I must take a stand against fishermen catching
For the Manatee County Commission District 3
seat, we endorse incumbent Stan Stephens, al-
though we'd like to see and hear from him more of-
ten on Island issues and at Island elected official
Roy Hendricks does have knowledge of the in-
ner workings of government from his job experi-
ence with the county and is to be commended for
his diligent campaign. His goals are admirable.
Also to be commended are the efforts of
Cortez's Jane von Hahmann, but we have concerns
based on her past support of the high bridge to
Cortez. We'd love to see someone elected to the
commission who would look out for the interests of
the Village of Cortez, but more for the needs of in-
dependent fisherman and preservation than for the
commercial potential looming there.
For our school board representative, we endorse
incumbent Barbara Turner. Her experience as an
elected official in Bradenton Beach and her tenure
on the board will serve her and us well in the next
Also on the school board, we endorse Harry
Kinnan. His family heritage is one of support and
thoughtful leadership in the schools and his election
would follow a tradition of sorts. He's been critical
of the present board's spending and we can't argue
Please remember to vote Tuesday.

Bowling tournament strikes
success for center
We would like to thank all 201 bowlers for mak-
ing this year's O'Connor Brothers Bowling Challenge
to benefit the Anna Maria Island Community Center
the biggest success ever.
From the responses we heard, everyone had a great
time for a great cause. Every year the tournament gets
bigger and better and it's because of all of you.
We would like to give a special thanks to the local
businesses who contributed to the success of the event
- the Beach Bistro, Bridge Tender, Sandbar, Beach
House, D.Coy Ducks, Sign of the Mermaid, Island
Discount Tackle, Peaches, Anna Maria Oyster Bar and
Circuit City. Last, but not least, The Islander By-
stander, because we never would have had more than
200 bowlers without its support.
Please share your appreciation with our business
sponsors because without them we never would have
reached our goal.

Lobster torture a dicey subject
If Pat Mowrey had won live chickens or cows -
instead of lobsters from the Tip of the Island restau-
rant, would your paper have run a photo of the animals
being killed for his dinner as portrayed in a photo en-
titled "Tickled (lobster) pink," in your Aug. 1 issue?
Lobsters may not be "wired" like humans, but this
doesn't mean they can't feel pain. In fact, their suffering
may be worse than ours would be in similar situations.
For example, chefs who like to slice and dice lob-
sters before throwing them in boiling water should
know that many researchers believe lobsters continue
to feel pain even after they have been cut in half.
Invertebrate zoologist Jaren G. Horsley says, "The
lobster does not have an autonomic nervous system that
puts it into a state of shock when it is harmed. It prob-.
ably feels itself being cut ... (and) feels all the pain
until its nervous system is destroyed" during boiling.
But don't heat up the water just yet, because boiling
lobsters alive (what one researcher calls "unnecessary
torture" isn't exactly humane, either. When lobsters are
dropped into scalding water, they whip their bodies wildly
and scrape the sides of the pot in a desperate attempt to
escape; they can take up to three minutes to die.
People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals thinks
it is time to liberate lobsters from the pot by switching
to a healthy, animal-friendly vegetarian diet.

Bequest, we beseech!
Regarding the article in the Aug. 8 Islander By-
stander, "New Anna Maria Beach OK'd by county,"
and the quote, "A beginning beach bequeath was
granted Tuesday for Anna Maria."
What in heaven's name is "a bequeath?"
Consult any dictionary and find that "bequeath" is a
verb. It describes the act of leaving or giving property by
Suppose that you made a mistake and meant "a
bequest" (the noun). This then begs the question
whether our government agencies are now so moribund
that they make their grants by bequest! Please, our lan-
guage is precious and deserves better. There are those who
are still learning and look to the press, among others, to
set an example. This is a poor one indeed!

Say 'no way' to offshore drilling
I was very upset to learn that Coastal Petroleum
Co. is preparing to begin offshore oil drilling along the
Florida Gulf coast. I was even more disturbed to learn
that the state seems to have resigned itself to the idea
that there is no way to stop this!
Governor Chiles has stated repeatedly that he is
opposed to offshore drilling and will do all in his power
to protect Florida's coastline.
The governor's stance is admirable, yet intentions
are one thing and action is quite another. In this case,
Chiles appears not to be taking any real action to halt
this potential environmental nightmare.
I strongly urge every citizen who cares about
Florida's coastline to write the governor and demand
immediate action, including a request for a response to
your letter, to stop Coastal Petroleum Co. now!

hassee, FL 32399-0001 or phone him at (904) 488-5152.

THOSE WERE THE BAYS
__ Part 13, Anna Maria Island and the Seminole War, 1835-1842
by June Alder
IIB IL. LA M A -I.
Chief Osceola, painted by famed artist George Catlin just before the charismatic
Seminole chiefs death in prison in 1838.
THE FINAL SOLUTION
The kidnapping and deportation of
the wives and children of the fishermen
at William Bunce's Anna Maria Island
rancho was Gen. Thomas Jesup's final
infamous act as American commander
in the bloody Second Seminole War.
Six months earlier Jesup had
shocked the public by his despicable
treatment of Seminole Chief Osceola.
Jesup had seized him under a flag of
truce and imprisoned him at Charleston
where he died of a "fever" on Jan. 30,
1838. Consequently, President Martin
Van Buren relieved Jesup from his com-
mand and he left Florida in disgrace
shortly after the Anna Maria Island
The fishermen who had petitioned
Secretary of War Joel Poinsett for the re-
turn of their families naturally hoped
Jesup's downfall would mean the end of
his cruel policies.
The entire Tampa Bay-Charlotte
Harbor Anglo-Spanish civilian commu-
nity of about 400 souls rallied around
Bunce and the fishermen. Not only for
humanitarian reasons. They knew if
Jesup's policy was allowed to stand, it
would doom the fishing community and
wreck the economy of the Gulf Coast.
Testimonials were given as to the
good character of Bunce and the loyalty
of his people to the United States. Judge
Augustus Steele, Bunce's long-time
friend, made a special trip up to Charles-
ton to plead their case to Secretary of
War Joel Poinsett.
But these efforts were in vain.
Brig. Gen. Zachary Taylor (later to
be elected President) was summoned to
Fort Brooke as temporary replacement
for Jesup. On May 14 he received a let-
ter from Acting Secretary War Samuel
Cooper with a message for Bunce.
The Department of War was satis-
fied with Jesup's policy "at least, for
the present," he wrote. "The return of
the families in question may become a
subject of future consideration, but un-
til a final pacification of the territory,
they must remain away."
He added.this outrageous state-
ment: "And it would be better for the
peace of the country, if the petitioners
would accompany them."
The constitutional convention that
would lead to Florida statehood in 1845
was to take place in the fall. The future
of the fisheries was sure to be an issue.
The people of Tampa Bay elected
Bunce to be their delegate to the meet-
ing. He was the last delegate to arrive
for the meeting at Christmas time.
Sure enough, there was a hot de-
bate about the fisheries. The old argu-
ments were trotted out that they were
flaunting revenue laws and smuggling
arms to the Seminoles. But the question
was moot. What happened on Anna
Maria Island was to end a way of life
that had endured for three centuries.
And what about Bunce? When
Florida's first constitution was ap-
proved on Friday, Jan. 11, 1839, he was
one of the signers. He may have been
ill when he put his pen to the document.
For he died not long afterwards.
Bunce was never to know that
within a year his Anna Maria rancho
would be no more put to the torch
by American soldiers.

New program for
teens offered at
By Michelle Timpanaro
They're making improvements, but there's more
happening than a new gym floor and some fresh sod on
the balding field out back.
"The Community Center is offering a new program
this fall in addition to our TLC program," said Liva
Flesner, director of operations. "The After School Club
will be geared toward teens in grades 6 8, and will be
offered Monday through Friday from 3 to 6 p.m."
The After School Club is a peer-pressure preven-
tion program designed to enhance positive decision-
making skills and build self-esteem.
The curriculum will include volunteer speakers
from various fields of expertise. "It is our goal to pro-
vide creative and educational programs that deal with
the difficult choices our youth face in our society to-
day," explained Flesner. "In addition to the after school
portion of this program, the center will again offer a
teen program two or three evenings a week."
The After School Club and evening teen programs
are for children ages 11 14. "Our goal is to reach all
Island teens by offering an exciting and challenging
alternative to hanging out on the streets," stated
To register or find out more information about
youth programs, contact Liva Flesner at the Anna
Maria Island Community Center, 407 Magnolia Ave.,
or call 778-1908.
Transportation will be available to the Center for
Bradenton Beach participants.

Bean Point is transformed with native plants
Anna Maria volunteer Doug Copeland and the
city's public works department are giving the area sur-
rounding the city walkway at Bean Point a new look.
Last week they planted 15 sabal palms on the approach
to the walkover.
Copeland designed the plan, which was approved
by the Florida Department of Environmental Protec-
tion. Mel Rector, owner, and J. C. Cochrane, both of
Florida Permitting in Holmes Beach, prepared docu-
ments necessary for a state permit.
The trees were donated by Scott Ricci of Holmes
Beach and were removed from a golf course he and his
father, Albert, are developing in Ellenton.
"I have to thank Steve Lardas (Island resident and
owner of D.Coy Ducks in Holmes Beach) for the idea,"
Ricci explained. "He was talking with Holmes Beach
Mayor Bob VanWagoner, who mentioned beautifying the
entrance to the city. I had a pile of palm trees and offered
them to Holmes Beach for their beautification program."
After hearing about the Holmes Beach offer,
Copeland approached Ricci and asked for some trees
for a Bean Point beautification project. Ricci quickly
agreed. He said he also offered trees to the City of
Bradenton Beach but has not received a reply.
Phase II of the Bean Point plan will incorporate
native trees such as gumbo limbo, buttonwood, mahoe,
sand live oak, live oak and sea grape; shrubs such as

silver buttonwood, lantana, pitch apple and inkberry;

Copeland said he will submit a proposal for Phase
II for the 1995-96 budget and will begin work imme-
diately if it is approved.
Holmes Beach is waiting for a permit from the Florida
Department of Transportation to plant its trees on Mana-
tee Avenue between the bridge and the traffic light.
Sabal palms, donated by golf course developer Scott Ricci, have been planted along the walkway in the first
phase of the project.

The Island Poet
A man called home and said his boss was taking him fishing for a week,
And said, "I couldn't get out of it no matter how I seek."
He asked his wife to pack his blue pajamas and all his fishing stuff,
'Cause he said he must go or his boss would leave him in a huff.
When he returned the wife asked him if the trip was a success?
He said the boss turned out such a good sport you couldn't even guess.
"The trip was great but you failed to pack my pajamas and some socks,"
His wife said, "I am sure I packed them, they were folded nicely in your tackle box."

School board candidates
address issues at Island forum
By Pat Copeland
Five school board candidates got an A for partici-
pating in a forum sponsored by the Holmes Beach
Civic Association Saturday.
Candidates included Republicans Frank Brunner
and Barbara Turner vying for the District 4 seat, Re-
publicans Eloise Lisch and Harry Kinnan vying for the
District 2 seat and Independent Thure Wegener, a write
-in candidate who will challenge the winner of the Dis-
trict 2 primary.
The four Republicans will face off in the Sept. 3
primary. Wegener will face the winner of the District
2 primary on Nov. 5 There are no Democrats running.
Candidates must live in their district but are elected
by voters county-wide. The salary for school board
members is $24,553, with retirement, health and life
insurance benefits included.
Frank Brunner is a former Manatee High School
graduate and Hall of Famer. He is also a graduate of
West Point and served in the Gulf War. He currently
regional manager for a local company, serves on the
board of the DeSoto Boys' and Girls' Clubs and a
graduate of Leadership Manatee.
"My campaign revolves around three issues -
leadership, accountability and fiscal responsibility," he
said. "Our mission is educating children. We need to
have safe schools in an environment that is conducive
to learning. We need to need to be focusing on the four
Rs reading, writing arithmetic and reality."
Incumbent Barbara Turner, an Island resident since
1969, is a former Manatee High School teacher and
business woman. She served as mayor of Bradenton
Beach from 1986 to 1987. She is completing her first
four-year term on the school board and pointed to the
board's recent accomplishments.
"We've made a lot of changes that have made a
great difference in the community," she said. "We've
started building and renovating schools, we've hired 87
new teacher and we've started getting the community
together to talk about redistricting so we can equal out
our class sizes and schools."
Harry Kinnan is a former Army officer and long-time
Manatee county educator. He recently retired as profes-
sor of health and physical education and head basketball
coach at Manatee Community College, a position he held
since 1978. He was inducted into the Florida Community
College Basketball Hall of Fame in 1996.
"Before you can serve a community, you have to
visit and talk to people to know what their needs are,"
he said. "The emphasis is on discipline, organization
and leadership to manage a program as big as Mana-
tee County. As a candidate I visited 22 schools in the
last four months."
Incumbent Eloise Lisch, a third generation native
of Manatee County, is a former businesswoman. Prior
to serving on the school board, she was executive di-
rector of the Manatee Public Schools Foundation. She
also serves on several community boards. She is cur-
rently completing her first term on the board.
"Four years go I made some strong commitments
- I would be a full-time board member, I would use
my business background in making decisions and I
would take a parent's perspective, I have kept those
commitments. I achieved a state-certified board mem-
ber status which entailed over 100 hours of training."
Thure Wegener had no handouts and gave no back-
ground except to say he is running as a parent and tax-
payer who is about to put his four-year-old son on "a
13-year journey into this dysfunctional quagmire that
we call a public education system."
"I'm not going to hand you any election year
candy," he noted. "I believe in vouchers and school
choice. I believe in your rights as a taxpayer, and I
believe in accountability and empowerment of parents
and teachers to decide on school hours, curriculum,
standards, how the money is spent in the classroom,
and so forth. The school board should be the vehicle to
support them with funding."

pleted in two years, the school will get what it needs.
Kinnan said the board needs to develop a compre-
hensive plan for repairing or fixing schools so schools
such as Anna Maria are not left out.
Lisch said it is in the board's five-year plan, but
Wegener disputed that by reading from the plan.
Brunner advocated equity in all the system's
classrooms and a change in the way the school sys-
tem performs preventative maintenance.
Protection for students against gangs:
Kinnan said the board has not acknowledged the
problem, and it needs to take a proactive approach by
adding resource officers and developing a policy to
Lisch said the resource officer program is being
expanded into the elementary schools, safety mea-
sures are part of the new construction and the board
is working with the sheriffs office.
Turner said the board is working with the
sheriffs office on the problem.
Wegener said the gang members, violent students
and other troublemakers should be thrown out of school.
Brunner said the board should work on state leg-
islation, work with the sheriff s department and send
a message to students that it will not be tolerated.
Returning elementary schools to a 9 a.m. to 3
p.m. schedule: (Hours are currently 8:05 a.m. to 2:55
p.m. In June, Turner and another board member sup-
ported returning to the previous hours, but the motion
Lisch said the current hours give students the
maximum time on-task, standardize the teaching day
and were necessitated by bus scheduling.
Wegener said a survey of parents about school hours
was flawed and parents and teachers want the change.
Brunner agreed with Wegener on the survey and
said he has no problem with students spending addi-
tional time in the classroom.
Turner said she will bring the issue to the board
again because elementary teachers need planing time
and children get too tired with the longer hours.
Kinnan said the board needs to return planning
time to elementary teachers.
Keeping parents informed:
Brunner and Turner advocated evening meetings
for the board. Brunner and Wegener advised parents
to get informed and involved in their child's school.
Kinnan and Wegener said teachers and parents
should be involved in the decision making process.
Lisch said attendance at the board's one night meet-
ing is poor and she said the board is working on tele-
vising meetings and initiating a newsletter to parents.
The lack of books in the schools:
Brunner, Kinnan and Wegener said the situation
is totally unacceptable and money can be found to
purchase books. Lisch said each school is allocated
$35 per student by the state, books are costly and the
board needs to address the issue. Turner said the prob-
lem stems from the priorities of the former adminis-
tration and the board is beginning to address it.
Position on bonding schools:
Lisch and Turner defended the board's decision
to borrow $82 million through Certificates of Opera-
tion. Brunner and Wegener said the people should
have the right to vote on a bond. Kinnan said the
board should have gone to the people with a plan.

12th Court Circuit
Voters will choose from three candidates for this
newly created judicial position. The election is non-
partisan, allowing Republicans, Democrats and Inde-
pendent voters to cast ballots.
Baranowicz, 38, is an assistant state attorney spe-
cializing in child molester and career criminal felony
trials. He formerly was an
assistant district attorney in
New York and had a private

and commercial litigation,

Baranowicz said. "Criminal
justice must be your primary concern in this election.
Our courts face daily the effects of social upheaval -
family disintegration, the devastation of drug abuse,
even the specter of violent gang activity, not in the
Bronx, but in our own backyard.
"My criminal justice experience will add to the
excellence of the 12th Circuit bench," he said. "Do not
tolerate inexperience in your candidates, for the times
we live in and the future we face will not tolerate in-
experience on the bench."
Baranowicz has a B.A. and his law degree from St.
John's University. He is married and has two daugh-
Ford-Kaus, 42, is a partner in the law firm of Grif-
fin Ford-Kaus. She practices primarily in the area of
family law and has been a lawyer since 1978, when she
was admitted to the New York State Bar. In 1986, she
became a prosecutor in
Sarasota County. She has
trial experience in criminal
law, commercial litigation
and family law.
Ford-Kaus has been
active in the Florida Asso-
ciation for Women Lawyers
and has served the group as
Ford-Kaus president. She has volun-
teered her time for the Free
Legal Clinic, sponsored by the Sarasota County Bar
Association. She has worked with the Women's Legal
Fund and is a member of the Sarasota Civic League and
Tiger Bay Club.
"I love our system of government," Ford-Kaus
said, "and the judiciary is its cornerstone. Without un-
biased, committed, and knowledgeable judges, our
government would shatter. Judges affect more people
directly than any other public official. Everyone who
comes to court should leave the experience knowing
that the judge has been totally focused on their case and
made the bet possible decision."
Ford-Kaus received a B.S. degree from Boston
College and her juris doctor from Suffolk University
Law School in Boston in 1977. She was a broadcast
journalist in Texas and Florida before becoming a
member of the Florida Bar in 1986. She is married and

area. He also co-founded and operated the De Soto
Memorial Speedway in 1973. An increasing interest in
law caused him to enroll in Mercer University School
of Law in 1983 at age 48.
"'Justice delayed is justice denied' is more than a
cliche," Swartz said. "It is but one of the problems
plaguing our judicial system. Cases must be heard
sooner and the parties need to feel assured that the
judge listened attentively and that they were treated
fairly under the law."

Donnolo, 56, said she "was concerned about the
downward trend of our airport. We need a strong fa-
cility to ensure the growth of the area, keeping in
mind the concerns and safety of the airport neigh-
bors and all other citizens of Manatee County."
She said she would be a "hardworking, dedi-
cated public servant who will do all that is humanly
possible to keep our airport a valuable asset. One
person cannot do it all, but it is with cooperation, not
confrontation, that our airport authority can work
well together to achieve our goals."
Donnolo has said better marketing of the airport
will increase use of the facility.
She is a retired businesswoman who has been
co-owner of a flying club based at the airport.
Donnolo was also a co-owner of Econo Pro Termite
and Pest Control. She is married and has one grown

and suspending such if they can't be justified."

He said "there doesn't appear to be any present
need or justification to extend the main runway or
build a parallel runway." Hall also said the author-
ity needs to "analyze the market that the airport
serves and negotiate with domestic air carriers that
could service the needs of that market.
"I have seen our community grow and develop
and feel this is a way I can give something back to
the community," Hall said as to why he is running
for the authority board.
Hall is president of Dolphin Aviation Inc. at the
airport. He is a lifelong resident of Manatee County
and has a B.S. in economics from Georgia Southern
College. He is married and has two grown children.
Olson, 72, is a Holmes Beach resident seeking
election to the airport authority.
"I view our airport as a great asset which should
be able to serve the people of the Manatee-Sarasota
area in a superior manner," he said. "The present
members of the authority have shown a tendency to
air their personal differences with each other and the
airport staff in the press and in the courts. This prac-
tice does not project an image of a well-run facility
in which the taxpayers can feel a sense of confi-
Olson said he "has an understanding of bureau-
cratic budgets and how to best deal with them to
make our airport more competitive. I am tired of the

Incumbent Young, 37, is seeking his second
term on the airport authority. He is advocating con-
tinuity as a basic tenent in his campaign.
"I intend to ensure the safety and comfort of the
traveling public while maintaining the highest level
of service for the least possible cost," Young said.
He said finding ways to increase airlines while cut-
ting costs to passengers is a key element in the fu-
ture success of the airport.
"Ours is a specialty airport that offers conve-
nience," he said.
Young has a B.A. degree from the University of

Don't forget the paper
plates, it's Labor Day
If the backyard's smoking, it must be one of those
summer holidays that require a barbecue.
You can hear the last cry of summer from over the
fences, "Quick, get out the lighter fluid. We gotta burn
On Fourth of July weekend, I smelled that distinc-
tive aroma of crab boil as I toured on in-line skates
around the north end of the Island. It was all I needed
to remind me of a childhood craving for blue crabs. I
headed back to the house for real transportation and a
trip to Karen Bell's Star Fish Company in Cortez.
Two dozen squiggling, belching crabs in a big
brown bag came home with me and met their fate: boil-
ing water and Louisiana hot sauce.
As a kid, I went crabbing with my cousin and Billy
Gardner in a little rowboat up and down the bank (we
weren't allowed to cross the river hence, one bank)
of the Elizabeth River in Portsmouth.
They seemed wealthy to me with a big home, a
boathouse and long dock on the river. They owned a
funeral home but I based my judgment of wealth on
their generosity. Billy had lots of traps. And trusting
parents. I'm convinced now we weren't old enough to
be crabbing in a boat by ourselves on that river.
My own kids used to crab from a dock in
Bradenton Beach with spring traps and chicken parts.
We all learned to love blue crabs. No one liked to clean
I spent some slow hours cleaning crabs and watch-
ing Wimbledon over the Fourth weekend instead of
burning meat on the barbie.
This coming Labor Day weekend, I thought I'd use
some of my leftover-from-a-trip-to-Jamaica jerk sea-
sonings and grill some chicken but I may not need
My shipment) just arrived from Alaska and with
any luck, I'll be slow-chewing salmon jerky for several

Besides, I don't have a grill anymore. The legs kept
falling off. It seems the salt air gets to the what-
chamacallits that hold legs on those kettle grills before
I ever can get the use out of the grill part. I gave up
about two years ago.
Also, my son showed me how to cook steak better
in a pan than on the grill. If you don't believe me, ask
someone who's eaten my specialty: a black and blue
New York. The only person who does steak as well is
Chef Marcus at Eddie B's.
At any rate, enjoy the day off if you have it.
Barbecue, the religion
For those who still believe in the grill and the sacred
barbecue, I have these words of wisdom from Bob
Morris's syndicated column,
"Florida Byways" ...
"In the beginning
there was only a void. In-
deed, all was but a pit.
An open pit But it was
not good, for there
was no charcoal. Nor
were there long-
handled tongs or
basting brushes or
'Kiss Me I'm the
ribs. But they
were in use
and the only .

to make the
"So people ate
apples and got knowl-
edge. That's how they
knew they were missing out on something.
"And so it came to pass that after generations and
generations had wandered hungry, very hungry, in the
wilderness, there came prophets who were sent to make
way and prepare the world for Barbecue. The most
zealous of them was Johnny, the Southern Baptist, who
taught the people to set aside vast stores of hickory and
warned them against worshipping false foods, like
pressed chicken nuggets or tofu. He spread the word
with a bumper sticker. 'Put Some South in Your
Mouth,' it said.
"And lo, there were shepherds in the fields and
they did look to the south where they saw smoke. And
drawing closer they saw a fire. And across that fire was
a grill. And on that grill were some ribs and they were
sizzling mightily and needed turning before they got
too crispy on the outside.
"And the shepherds did flip them. And then they
did fall on their knees and give praise because, be-
ing shepherds, all they had eaten up to that time was
mutton. And they were sick of it, sick unto the very

"And Sonny brought lots of extra napkins.

S. "So they did eat. And eat. And eat
some more. After which they watched a ball
game and fell asleep.
S"And when they had awakened they did
all agree that Barbecue did hold for them
the keys to the kingdom of heaven. Hog
Shaven. So they had leftovers for dinner.
And someone fetched a watermelon."
Morris's column disappeared from the
Sarasota daily paper more than a year ago
and I've certainly missed his contribution
to my Sunday morning read. Perhaps he'll
discover we've "shared" his barbecue
wisdom and wit and get in touch with us.

Wildlife flocks to the River Club
By Andrew White
Imagine a clear summer afternoon in central
Florida. You are standing on a tee box looking down
a green, tree-lined golf fairway with rolling hills here
and there marking the course.
In the distance the cry of a red-tailed hawk breaks the
silence. You step up and smack a hard drive right down
the middle, the sound of the club face connecting squarely
against the ball echoing through the woods.
While enjoying the long ride to your ball you take
a moment to survey the surroundings. The scent of pine
is in the air. In the small, green-side pond night herons
Shop from lilypad to lilypad while a baby alligator lies
stationary on the bank as if watching for your next shot.
This is what golfing in Florida is all about and it is
available everyday at the River Club. Located on State
Road 70 just a few miles east of Interstate 75, the River
Club is set against the terrain of old Florida. Pine for-
ests and palmetto bushes make up most of the natural
landscape, while the Braden river and various ponds
keep things moist along the way. The gently rolling
river provides a shelter for some of Florida's most in-
teresting wild creatures.
It's easy to get caught up in such a spectacular
environment, but you must remember that there is a
tough golf course to deal with here that isn't afraid to
bare its teeth on any errant shot. A slice into the woods,

or a chilly dip into the water can make even the most
ardent environmentalist toss his club in anger.
This par-72, championship layout demands your
strict attention. If you come here planning to attack,
bring along a lot of ammunition. The mostly thin fair-
ways and plentiful water hazards regularly claim their
share of balls.
Forced carries are the name of the game here. On at
least 10 holes you must fly the ball over water, sand or
brush to safely getit on the green. Not only must you carry
the ball into most greens, once there they favor a high-tra-
jectory approach shot that lands softly anything less
will most likely run through or offto the side. The hazards
protecting many of the greens make laying up, even on par
fours, a painfully realistic option.
The greens themselves are demanding, with heavy
undulations and multiple tiers on some holes, yet they are
very true to a putting stroke. A shot beyond the hole will
almost surely leave a fast, downhill breaking putt.
It would be hard to pick out one signature hole at
River Club, but two in particular stand out as exem-
plary. The 16th, from the white tees, is a 385-yard par-
four that doglegs slightly left. A fairly wide fairway
allows one to let loose with the driver, but out-of-
bounds lurks closer than expected on both the left and
right sides, demanding some control. The approach is
into an island green positioned on a large lake that of-
ten is wracked by swirling winds. It requires two solid

shots to get there with no room for error and has been
a heartbreaker for many great rounds.
The 18th hole is a relatively short par four at 320
yards, but it has one of the most intimidating tee shots
in the area. Set in a thick pine forest, the tee box looks
out over 100 yards of thick brush that must be carried
to get the ball to the skinny fairway. Too long of a drive
will put the ball into a large bunker that protects the
front-right of the elevated green. It takes courage to
break out the driver here, but if placed accordingly it
rewards with a short iron or wedge into the green and
a chance to finish with a birdie.
Try the River Club for the environment, the wild-
life but most of all for the challenge.

Beach water testing issue heats up
By Bob Ardren
Testing of beach water is suddenly a hot issue. The
Bradenton Mullet Wrapper has pronounced in an edi-
torial "our beaches are among the cleanest in the state.
Tests aren't needed."
Imagine that: our beach waters are so clean we
don't even need to test them. Boy, am I ever glad the
drinking water department doesn't use that line of
And how would we know? Unless and until some-
body does some testing, the truth is, we don't know.
--And neither do our tourists who come here trusting us
to provide safe accommodations.
Pinellas County spends a whopping $10,000 a year
to test local beaches once a week. It has such a good
program that it's praised nationally.
Sarasota spends $1,100 a year to test it beaches
quarterly. Manatee County probably spends more than
that on snacks for its commissioners every year to get
them through their meetings.
And we're told the county can't afford it.
The Mullet Wrapper writes "...we find it difficult
to justify spending money on tests that may or may not
have any meaning." Excuse me, but what if they do
have some meaning?
What if they just show that we do care about the
health, safety and welfare of our own families and
those of the tourists who come here? Sounds to me as
though it's time to drag our county government into the
Gloria Rains and ManaSota-88 have jumped into
the fray. In a letter to Manatee County Commissioners
Aug. 12, Rains said, "The members of ManaSota-88
reiterate their request that swimmer's safety in Mana-
tee County be ensured by the adoption of minimum
standards, monitoring procedures and public notifica-
tion protocols for beach recreation waters.
"Significant amounts of sewage sludge, re-
claimed water, runoff from animal contamination,
etc., run off into our recreational waters. Pathogens
in these waters can cause diarrhea, rashes, infections
and other health problems. Of particular concern are

And one last thing. This past Tuesday the Mullet
Wrapper finally asked readers what they think about
testing beach waters. Drop them a line by Sept. 4 and
let them know. You'll feel good about it.
Redder than the tide?
Faces at Mote Marine Laboratory were redder than
red tide last week. That's because an article in the
August 26 Wall Street Journal quotes Mote officials as
suggesting possible "benefits of red tide."
This comes at the same time Mote is receiving
funds from a group devoted to "declaring war on red
Truth is, Dr. Kumar Mahadevan and others such as
Gary Kirkpatrick at Mote were just being good scien-
tists. Staff Scientist Kirkpatrick told a WSJ reporter
that if red tide "is a key component to ecosystems such
as Sarasota Bay, and if we eliminate it, other organisms
could be seriously affected.
"We have to understand the ecological role of this
organism a lot better before we take actions eliminate it
from certain areas," Kirkpatrick was quoted as saying.
That makes sense to me.
hiking, biking and
In 1991, the 22,000-acre Duette Park began a wild-
life management hunt program. This year, the park
plans to expand its usage to include hiking and biking
and horseback riding trails for all to enjoy.
Duette Park, which is designated watershed con-
servation area, features some of Florida's most beau-
tiful and diverse ecosystems. Visitors to the park can
view palmetto prairie, live oak hammocks, dense pine
forests, wildflower meadows and beautiful marsh and
The park also has several distinct species of wild-
life including the highly endangered scrub jays and
Florida panthers. More common sightings in the park
include, coyotes, deer, armadillos, many special of
birds, bobcats and wild boar.

But then the WSJ seemed to take a "lets you and
him fight" attitude. It printed a statement by an uniden-
tified someone at the non-profit group Solutions To
Avoid Red Tide (START) as saying "that if the group
[Mote] doesn't have the same goal, it won't be included
in any future projects with START involving red tide."
START is a largely Longboat Key group dedicated
to ridding area beaches of red tide, and it recently gave
Mote $12,000 to study red tide. In total, Mote received
about $350,000 this year from various foundations,
governments and groups such as START to study the
Reaction to the WSJ article was swift.
"I don't think they provided the whole story," Mote
Executive Director Mahadevan told the local press.
Betty Blair of START said that, "we definitely feel we
share the same goals as Mote."
Perhaps one indication of exactly how carefully the
WSJ article was put together is its identification of
Florida Sen. John McKay of Bradenton. It called the
rising Republican legislative star a Democrat.

state. Eleven hunts per year are held, each allowing 150
people to hunt.
The hunts include two archery hunts, one

deer, three of which were eight point and over 160
hogs. Rounding out the hunt program are five small

Reds, mackerel still good bets near, far
By Capt. Mike Heistand
Look no farther than just offshore to find some fine
fishing action mackerel are continuing to run through
the area. Backwater anglers are still catching lots of red-
fish and catch-and-release snook, while offshore anglers
are bringing in good catches of snapper and jacks.
Kevin at the Rod and Reel Pier said pier fishers
there have been doing well in the mornings with catch-
and-release snook up to 38 inches long and some two-
foot-long mackerel. There are also reports of
sheesphead and black drum.
Anna Maria City Pier anglers are catching lots of
mackerel, mangrove snapper later in the day and lots
of jacks and blue runners 'most any time, as well as
some catch-and-release snook.
Jamie at Miss Cortez Fishing Fleet said the four-
hour trips averaged 85 head of Key West grunts, sand
perch and sea bass. The six-hour trips averaged 100
head of Key West grunts, lane and mangrove snapper.
The nine-hour trips averaged a few black grouper and
At the Sunshine Skyway Fishing Pier, look for
jacks, small sharks, mackerel, flounder and cobia.

fishing right now is excellent, with lots of catch-and-
release snook, redfish, some small trout and an occa-
Capt. Rick Gross is putting his charters onto reds
and catch-and-release snook in the backwater.
Capt. Mark Bradow said they hooked onto two
more tarpon this week, plus one legal-sized cobia and
lots of mackerel.
On my boat Magic we've been catching lots of
reds and catch-and-release snook.
Capt. Tom Chaya said his charters are pulling in
mackerel off the beaches, small sharks in the bays and
reds in the backwater.
Bill at Island Discount Tackle predicts snook sea-
son this fall will be a good one if early reports are any
indication. Right now, though, redfishing is the best bet
in the backwater. Offshore, look for dolphin, bonita and
black fin tuna are hooking up right now, too, especially
for trolling anglers.
Good luck and good fishing.
