Inspectors: do Key Royale Bridge repairs


By Pat Copeland
Islander Reporter
Holmes Beach Mayor Bob VanWagoner said in-
spectors of the Key Royale Bridge have recommended
that minor work be done to the bridge.
VanWagoner met with Jack Roberts, senior vice
president of David Volkert and Associates,4nc., the firm
contracted by the state to inspect the bridge on May 16.
"He said it's in about the same condition as last
year," VanWagoner reported.
VanWagoner said the work will add about five to


eight years to the life of the bridge, which is targeted for
replacement by the Florida Department of Transportation
in 2003. The cost for the work will be about $75,000.
According to the inspection report:
The beams show spelling, or places where chunks
of concrete have fallen off, and reinforcing is exposed.
The piling jackets are in poor condition with large
delaminated areas. The fiberglass forms of the second
layer of the pilings are split and separated from the con-
crete, exposing PVC spacers at the pile comers.
The end bents have numerous spalls and cracks


that are associated with delaminations.
Last summer the city sounded an alert about the
condition of the bridge after state inspectors recom-
mended that the bridge be replaced as soon as pos-
sible. In September, the city placed load restrictions
on the bridge and added stop signs at each end to
slow traffic. It also announced that the 15 mph speed
limit would be strictly enforced.
In December, DOT held a public hearing on bridge
replacement plans and took public comment. Recently
the DOT submitted a revised plan to the city.


Residents, officials, coaches agree to play ball


By Pat Copeland
Islander Reporter
What began as a misunderstanding ended in a
mutual agreement on the use of Holmes Beach's pro-
posed ball field to be built behind city hall.
Holmes Beach officials, residents and Island base-
ball coaches met with Manatee
County officials Friday and 'We view it as y
worked out changes to the you've request
interlocal agreement on the type, Tell us what you
use and scheduling of the ball incorporate tha

Commission. Danny Hopkin,
Problems surfaced at last Parks & Ri
week's county commission meet-
ing when Holmes Beach Mayor Bob VanWagoner ex-
pressed his reservations.
"Concerns were raised at the (city) commission
level about the fact that the field is getting more and
more heavily used and we might have to control it," he
said. "If we enter into an agreement that shares the use
of the field with the county, it's unclear how intense
that other use will be."
VanWagoner was referring to a March draft of the
interlocal agreement between the city and the county
regarding use of the entire field, not just the ball field.
He was unaware that an April draft of the agreement
had limited use to the ball field.
Island baseball coaches expressed concern that the
field would be heavily used by county leagues and the
county, not the city, would be scheduling the games,
VanWagoner said. Residents living near the field were
worried about increased traffic and noise, he said.

Drive getting hit with balls.
Hopkins noted that the new position might increase
costs because a comer of the field would overlap the
street.
Holmes Beach resident Alan Bouziane asked how
many leagues could potentially use the field.
Richard Hubbard, county recreation supervisor,
said there are several, including Babe Ruth, American
Legion and the Senior League, but the county does not
operate the leagues.
"They pay us user fees, and we facilitate (schedul-
ing) for them," he explained.
Hopkins said the Holmes Beach field will have
limited appeal to other leagues because it won't be
lighted. The county's lighted fields include eight for
softball, two for Little League and two for regulation
baseball. In addition, the county utilizes local high
school ball fields.
Courtney said the city wants the Anna Maria Island


Community Center to schedule use of the field.
"I want the language to be clear that we control the
scheduling," VanWagoner said. "This is not shutting
the county out. It can make a request to use the field as
long as it's not regular daily use. The intent was to give
our children a baseball field."
Hubbard said if the city wants to limit use of the field
it could build an all-purpose field instead of a Babe Ruth
field. The drawback is that Babe Ruth teams could prac-
tice on it but not play regulation games on it.
Courtney asked if Little League could practice on
a Babe Ruth Field. Hubbard said there could be two

Roser Church thrift shop debated; process flawed?


By Paul Roat
The proposed rezoning of property adjacent to Roser
Memorial Church for a thrift shop is having repercussions
for at least one commissioner in Anna Maria.
"I understand the church wants to enter into a busi-
ness specifically prohibited in the city," Commissioner
Doug Wolfe said last week on the proposal. "I have
stated every time I ran for elected office that I would
not change the zoning in the city. If this is approved,
we will be caving into a special interest group and I do
not believe that is in the best interest of Anna Maria."
At issue is a proposal to rezone two lots currently
zoned Residential Office Retail to Public Semi-public
adjacent to the church at 512 Pine Ave. Proposed use,
according to chair of the trustees of the church Paul
Rausch, is "not even a thrift shop people in need will
receive this property."
Rausch said the church has been receiving items -
clothes, furniture and the like it then sells as a means
to raise money for a variety of charitable causes. The


shop would be open three days a week for about three
hours each day.
"This is an experimental thing for the church,"
Rausch said. "We're selling strictly donated items.
There's very little difference between a yard sale or a
bazaar."
Commissioners will continue to debate the matter
at the regular meeting May 27 beginning at 7:30 p.m.
During last week's commission meeting, resident
Charlie Canniff asked about the zoning category
change. "If it's currently zoned for retail, why change?"
he asked. "We should keep the zoning and have them
ask for a special exception."
Building Official Phil Charnock said the zoning
change "was the cleanest way to deal with this. That's
why I suggested the rezoning to the church."
Mayor Chuck Shumard appeared frustrated at the
length of time the process was taking. "The property
has been zoned ROR and they opened the shop in
April. We stopped them and put them into another di-


reaction [through the rezoning]. Now, we're telling them
they need to go in another direction when I don't be-
lieve any of us are objecting to the store."
However, there may be another wrinkle that could
further delay the process the Florida Supreme Court.
In 1993, the court ruled that rezonings in the state
must be "quasi-judicial" in nature. Witnesses must be
sworn, testimony presented and substantial proof that
the rezoning follows the government's comprehensive
plan documented before a rezoning may be approved.
Last week's matter, held during a work session of
the commission, did not appear to follow the quasi-ju-
dicial requirements set forth by the Supreme Court.
Shumard said he did not think the city had to go
through the intricate process for rezonings for the
church "but we'll check with the attorney and see. I
don't think we did anything wrong."
Quasi-judicial proceedings were followed during
the city's planning and zoning board review of the re-
quest April 28, records indicate.


What's all this mess?
Residents inquiring about work at the curve at the
Manatee County Public Beach have learned that
the work is part of the city's ongoing drainage
improvements. Hopefully the work will alleviate
flooding on the road following rain storms.
Barricades and no parking signs will be added
and the area will be sodded.

4 sets of bases and a movable pitching mound; however,
the clay area would have to be larger.
Courtney said that would give the highest and best
use.
"The agreement needs to be revisited and those
safety valves incorporated into it," Hopkins said. "Then
the county can make a decision on whether it agrees
with those caveats. We want to be good neighbors too.
That's what partnering is all about."
Courtney said he will draft a new agreement with
the changes discussed and submit it to the county.
Hopkins said maintenance would be shared by the
city and county.
"We'll build it and prepare it for the season," he
said. "Specialty maintenance would be our responsibil-
ity and day-to-day maintenance such as prepping,
mowing and irrigation would be the city's responsibil-
ity."
Planned improvements to the field include a new
backstop, fencing and an irrigation system. The county
is also slated to lay clay in the infield and grass in the
remaining parts of the infield and outfield. The cost is
estimated at $50,000.


Anna Maria considers


easing film restrictions


By Anthony Seaton
Islander Reporter
At the very same time the movie "Palmetto" was
being filmed on the historic city pier in Anna Maria,
commissioners began discussion to ease restrictions in
the city's filming ordinance.
Actor Woody Harrelson and a crew of dozens of pro-
fessional film people were using the Anna Maria City Pier
and the former Fast Eddies/Anchorage restaurant for film-
ing last Tuesday while the city commission heard a first
reading of proposed changes to the ordinance governing
all filmed or videotaped productions in the city.
According to Planning and Zoning Board Chairman
Tom Turner, the changes are meant to make the process
of obtaining permits for filming or videotaping commer-
cials or other similar productions, less restrictive.
The rules covering big productions such as the
"Palmetto" filming most likely wouldn't be affected.
Smaller productions, such as a commercial for the
Sandbar restaurant videotaped by Time Warner Com-
munications, for instance, would involve less red tape
for the producers under the proposed changes.
Currently, producers or companies wanting to film
or videotape anywhere in the city must file for a per-
mit with city hall. This won't change, but the number
of officials who must review the request will be slashed
in the case of smaller productions.
The proposed changes would allow the mayor to ap-
prove such requests without involving the full commis-
sion.
Vice Mayor Doug Wolfe says this change is meant to
expedite matters for those productions that don't require
any action by the city, such as police or fire department
involvement, and should make things easier on those op-
erations. "We just made it as simple as possible," he said.
As it stands now, the permitting process requires
that details of the production such as number of people
in the crew, number of days for filming, locations and
description of scenes to be filmed be submitted two


weeks in advance and that a fee be paid, if applicable.
There is a one time $200 application fee, according to
town clerk Peggy Nelson.
After that process, the town's building official re-
views the request and sends it on to the police force and
fire marshal for review and comment. These officials
may send the request on to other affected agencies as
needed. He then schedules the application for review
by the city commission for approval, denial or approval
with conditions. Some conditions that the commission
may require include posting of bonds and/or insurance
to cover any liabilities and the completion of a "hold-
harmless" agreement.
This law was enacted several years ago after a
Coca Cola commercial was filmed at Bean Point and
the production company "left the place a terrible mess,"
according to Doug Wolfe. Shortly thereafter, there was
an unsubstantiated rumor that a Clint Eastwood movie
would be shot at the Rod and Reel Pier.
The current ordinance was passed as "a knee-jerk
reaction," Wolfe said, to try to ensure that nothing like
the problems with the Coke shoot reoccurred. The
movie "Seven Sundays" that was filmed on Coquina
Beach and in Sarasota a few years ago was to have built
a small set at Bean Point, but according to Wolfe, was
denied the permit because they required heavy vehicles
on the beach. Wolfe said the Florida Department of
Environmental Protection wouldn't allow it.
Asked how beach renourishment will be accom-
plished, since heavy vehicles will be required for that,
as is evident to anyone who has been to a Longboat
Key beach lately, Wolfe said, "That's the federal gov-
ernment, and they do what they want."
The city commission will hear a second reading of
the proposed changes at its May 27 meeting.
The public and any interested parties should make
themselves heard at the meeting, Wolfe said, "other-
wise we'll just go ahead and vote on our own, assum-
ing we're doing what the public wants."

Fire district, Coast Guard perform joint rescue


By Pat Copeland
Islander Reporter
The Anna Maria Fire District and the U.S. Coast
Guard participated in a joint rescue last week when a crew
member of a tanker was badly burned in an accident.
"We got the call to assist the Coast Guard about 9
a.m.," said Ken Jenkins, a part-time firefighter for the
district and a career firefighter for the City of
Bradenton. "I reported to the Coast Guard station in
Cortez and was transported to the freighter, which was
about three to four miles offshore near Egmont Key."
The Jo Cedar, a tanker from the Netherlands, was
traveling through Egmont Channel when a pressure


line broke and sprayed 140-degree fuel over the man's
abdominal area. He suffered first and second degree
bums, Jenkins said.
"When we got there, we had to climb the ship's rope
ladder to get onto the ship," Jenkins recalled. "The ship's
doctor treated the man the best he could and determined
he needed to be transported to a hospital for further care.
We put him in a Stokes Basket and lowered him onto the
Coast Guard boat using the ship's crane."
The man was transported to the Cortez Coast
Guard station where an ambulance took him to Colum-
bia Blake Medical Center in Bradenton.
Jenkins praised Kevin Perreault, boatswain's mate,


Almost-final documents done for

grant work in Bradenton Beach


Plans are nearly final for the next phase in
improvements to Bradenton Beach's historic old-
town district.
Citizen Advisory Task Force members Mon-
day reviewed the almost-final plans drawn up by
Rick Fawley and John Moody for the $400,000
work, scheduled to begin in late summer. The
funds as from a Community Development Block
Grant through the federal government.
Plans call for curbs, sidewalks and gutters
along Gulf Drive from Bridge Street to First Street
North, then east on First to Bay Drive. Benches
will be built, bike racks added, lighting improved
and decorative trash receptacles installed.


At the approach to the fishing pier, scenic over-
looks will be created jutting across the rock revetment
to provide panoramic views of Sarasota Bay.
The city parking lot, between First Street South
and Bridge Street, will be paved, landscaped and
lighted as well.
Plans are available at city hall for citizen re-
view, CATF Chair John Sandberg said.
The next step in the process will be presentation
of final documents to the CATF next Tuesday, fol-
lowed by approval by the city commission June 19.
Work is scheduled to be bid in July, a contractor
selected by late July and work to begin in August. The
project should be completed by November.

Clock tower runs afoul of city ownership


By Paul Roat
Oops.
That's the word being bandied around Bradenton
Beach these days due to a surveying glitch over who
owns what property near the fishing pier off Bridge
Street.
A 300-square-foot triangular piece of land at the
southeast comer of Bridge Street and Bay Drive South
is the focus of the embarrassment. Renovation plans for
the fishing pier call for the erection of a clock tower,
with a gazebo and a fine bay vista, at the site. The tower
as proposed would be 34 feet high and have four sides
with clocks on each side. The faces of the four clocks
will be illuminated.
The problem is that what was thought to be city
property may actually be owned by Dr. Fred Bartizal,
owner of the Bridge Tender Inn.
And Bartizal isn't real interested in selling.
Building Official Bill Sanders, who is representing
the city in negotiations with Bartizal, reports that a land

swap could happen with the restaurateur 5,000
square feet of bayfront property south of the Bridge
Tender Inn parking lot on South Bay Drive in trade for
the city's use of the land for the clock tower.
Sanders said he doesn't recommend that kind of a
deal, especially since Bartizal had a dock built adjacent to
the city land several years ago a dock that abuts city
property.and could therefore be claimed as a city dock.
The building official has come up with an innova-
tive alternative proposal of building the clock tower on
that 5,000-square-foot site.
As he puts it, the new site off Bay Drive South for
the clock tower "would create a park-like atmosphere
in the area for all the citizens instead of a parking lot
benefiting primarily only the Bridge Tender Inn. Its
proximity to the water's edge and remoteness from the
heavy traffic flow of the Bridge Street intersection
makes it a much more restful area for walkers and bi-
cyclists."
Sanders' options to the commission include the


trade of property, moving the clock tower to the small
traffic circle at Bridge Street and Bay Drive, remove
the clock tower from the pier plans or create a park in
the 5,000-square-foot site off Bay Drive South near
Third Street South.
Monday night, another alternative was suggested
by the city's Citizen Advisory Task Force.
Emily Anne Smith, a member of the task force,
said the clock tower could be relocated to the parking
area leading to the fishing pier. The new plans for the
pier parking approach call for 23 parking spaces; the
clock tower would take up six of them. The current
parking at the'pier is 20, so the change would have a
net loss of three from what is currently there.
Commissioner John Chappie, a liaison to the
CATF, said he favored the relocation of the tower to
the pier parking area. "I prefer the cleanest, simplest
deal moving the tower to the pier even though we
lose six parking spaces."
CATF members unanimously endorsed the tower
transfer plan. The city commission now will make a final
decision on the matter at a special meeting Wednesday,
May 21, beginning at 1:30 p.m. in city hall.
The pier renovations are being done through a grant
from the Florida Recreational Development Assistance
Program and matching money from the city. Other work
to improve the approach to the pier will begin later this
year through another grant, this one through the Commu-
nity Development Block Grant program.
There is some urgency in resolving the issue as the
contractor doing work on the pier, TBS Construction
of Sarasota, is nearly done with work on the pier except
for the clock tower. TBS Construction was low bidder
at $126,250.
Extensive landscaping will guide pier patrons
along the parking area to the entrance of the pier, which
will have wide verandahs and porch swings for seating.
Moving further along the 660-foot-long pier, fish-
ers and walkers will have three covered cabanas under
which to pause as they look at the vistas of Sarasota
Bay and Cortez.
At the far end of the pier, a huge covered pavilion
will provide a bit of relief from the sun.

Orimulsion controversy fires up again


By Pat Copeland
Islander Reporter
Florida Power and Light officials delivered a sur-
prise to the Manatee County Commission last week and
received a surprise in return when an appeals court
ruled in their favor.
FPL officials unveiled several improvements to
their proposal to bum the controversial fuel
Orimulsion. The improvements were developed over
the last year after the governor and cabinet denied their
request to burn the fuel.
The day after FPL announced the improvements,
the First District Court of Appeals ruled that the gov-
ernor and cabinet, sitting as the Power Plant Siting
Board, erred in denying the request. The court said they
must revisit the 258 findings of fact from last year's
administrative hearing and accept or reject each one.
The story started six years ago when FPL began plan-
ning to convert its Parrish plant to bum Orimulsion, a
mixture of bitumen, water and an emulsifying agent, to be
imported from Venezuela. Its permit application was re-
viewed by county, regional and state agencies, as well as
a state hearing officer who made a favorable recommen-
dation to the governor and cabinet.
Environmentalists opposed its use, citing concerns
over increased air pollution, spills in Gulf and Bay
waters and water depletion from the Little Manatee
River. Opponents targeted nitrogen oxide (NOx) as the
most serious pollutant and maintained it would increase
nitrogen loading in local waters and contribute to the
creation of ozone and acid rain.
In addition, Parrish residents opposed the proposed
increase in truck traffic through their town. FPL had
said there would be 202 truck trips per day.

Improvements detailed by
company officials
Joe Parent, general manager of FPL's Parrish plant,
said when FPL began the licensing process in 1994,
"We assumed if we met all of the environmental stan-
dards set by the agencies, the project would be accept-
able to the agencies as well as the general public.


Frankly the public had a different sense of balance,
Many, right or wrong, believed we sacrificed environ-
mental improvements for economic considerations."
He said company officials talked with hundreds of
citizens, officials and environmentalists over the last
year and have addressed their concerns with the im-
provements.
Improvements offered by FPL:
There will be no increase in NOx emissions,
which will remain at current levels from burning one
percent sulfur fuel.
FPL will establish a 20-year, $20 million trust
fund to be used to support governmental, educational
and non-profit projects that preserve, protect and im-
prove water quality, ecology and wildlife and marine
habitats in Tampa Bay.
FPL will fund up to $1 million for a vessel track-

Manatee County was the winner last week
when a federal judge ruled in its favor in a $27 mil-
lion lawsuit brought by Amerecycle last April.
In 1991, Amerecycle made a proposal to the
Manatee County Commission to build a $48 million
composting facility to process the county's waste.
The company was seeking a 20-year contract to
operate the plant and planned to charge the county
$10 million per year.
Manatee County Commissioner Joe McClash
and former Commissioner Kent Chetlain opposed
Amerecycle's plan in which all garbage, including
recyclables, would be taken to a processing plant
to be built by the company. The recyclables would
have been separated and the remaining garbage


ing system in Tampa Bay.
FPL will establish a $1 million community assis-
tance trust fund for the residents of Parrish. In addition,
$25,000 will be contributed to the fund annually. The
fund will be used for periodic assessment of the plant
and community improvements and projects.
Rail cars rather than trucks will be used to deliver
limestone to and remove gypsum from the Parrish
plant. Truck trips will be limited to 30 per day.
FPL will provide an environmental viewing room
at the Parrish plant for public access to environmental
monitoring data.
"Area residents don't see this as a pocketbook is-
sue but rather a quality of life issue," Parent said. "We
understand the significance of that message and have
worked hard to become partners with the community
to achieve an environmental solution."


shredded, cured and sold as "compost."
The proposed plan received widespread criticism
from citizens led by McClash because of the cost to
residents, the length of the contract, questions concern-
ing the ability of the company to fulfill the contract,
the quality of the end product and whether the county
would be able to meet the state mandate of a 30 per-
cent reduction in the waste stream using the process.
The county ended negotiations with
Amerecyole in 1995 and the company sued the
county in 1996 claiming breach of contract and vio-
lation of its constitutional rights.
The judge said that the county and the company
were only negotiating and there was no contract.
Therefore, there was no breach of contract and the
expectation of a contract does not constitute a con-
stitutionally protected property right.

Blah, blah, blah, play ball
With a few minor changes to the interlocal agree-
ment between Holmes Beach and Manatee County, the
Babe Ruth field proposed for the area of the existing
Little League field, will be built.
This comes in spite of 1 th-hour intervention from
Mayor Bob' VanWagoner, apparently acting on a
citizen's complaint rather than on the wishes of his city
commission.
The duties of the mayor in Holmes Beach are
largely administrative, primarily acting to carry out the
wishes of the five voting members of the commission.
The mayor does not have a vote.
We were taken back by the mayor's statements to
the Manatee County Commission last week but not
nearly so much as the Holmes Beach commissioners.
The "Island Telegraph" was abuzz and the stands
at the Little League stadium vibrated with prattle.
Coaches met. Citizens huddled. Commissioners raged.
All sparked apparently by letters from Hugh
Holmes Sr. to mayor and commission regarding use of
property deeded to the city by his father, John Holmes
Sr., and associates Karl Karel and Frank Giles and an-
other letter to this newspaper published in the May 14
edition.
Holmes states the commission appears willing to
accept usage of city property subject to the approval of
the heirs of those grantors. That's misleading, he says.
He offers to set the record straight, stating, "The
grantors envisioned an attractive and functional admin-
istrative complex" ... also a meeting room for organi-
zations, classes, etc. "The balance of the property was
to be used for parks and recreational purposes and land-
scaped accordingly," says Holmes.
Holmes says all requests for private monetary gain
rather than community benefits should be denied and
reminds the commission that they must take it upon
themselves to approve or deny use.
Holmes stated strong opposition to accepting
county money for the ball field and to use of the re-
maining area of the field by the Island Football Club,
members of an adult soccer league.
He asks that the majority of the residents in the
area, which he considers mostly retirees, have input.
Well, we're sorry he missed all the reports, discus-
sjon, petitions and meetings on this subject but the time
for input has passed.
It's a ball field now and it will soon be an improved
ball field. All parties have agreed to allow the Anna
Maria Island Community Center to provide scheduling.
If it is perceived a problem to allow teams from
"town" to use an Island field, consider two to three
Island teams competing and practicing there during
their season. It leaves little time in the schedule for

Toll, roundabout are solution to
Island traffic congestion
"Your Opinion" of May 14 only scratches the sur-
face of the existing traffic problems on Anna Maria
Island.
Traffic to this desirable Island will continue to in-
crease unless visitors are given a convenient option to
driving onto the Island in tourist season.
The Island's beaches are a wonderful attraction,
but people visiting them are not asked to contribute one
cent toward their upkeep, provision of car parks or
garbage collection. A small charge would improve the
quality of our environment and reduce traffic conges-
tion. Both these ends could be achieved by putting a $3
toll on bridges, like is done on Sanibel Island, and pro-
viding large free car parks on Manatee Avenue and
Cortez Road.
They would need to be well-served by a frequent
free trolley service via an express lane to the Island.
Residents and business would have free access.
I am sure there are a slew of legalistic reasons why
this cannot be done, but some way will have to be
found to limit traffic otherwise the Island will die un-
der a mass of cars.
One other simple and inexpensive way to improve
local traffic flow would be to reconstruct the present
uniquely confusing traffic pattern at the western end of
Manatee Avenue where it meets SR789.
Why not put in a simple rotary (roundabout)
scheme whereby drivers just give way to others who
are already on the rotary, like Bridge Street in
Bradenton Beach? The present intersection is con-
trolled by three stop signs, one yield sign and one
straight-through route sign. Isn't that enough to confuse
even residents, let alone visitors?
David Curry, Cortez

any other use.
We see the prospects for a soccer field on the city
field as a tremendous asset and this too will be sched-
uled by the Center with all compatibility considered -
including city business and parking.


So, what's the problem?
It's up to the commission to decide and they did
their job. We presume that if the heirs disagree, they'll
have their recourse.
Hopefully the mayor will keep his hands out of it.


Storm trooper bridge
My friend, Evelyn Rossi, and I were unfortunate to
be in the terrible storm Wednesday, April 23, but very
fortunate indeed to be on our way home to Anna Maria
Island.
We were on Manatee Avenue on the Palma Sola
Causeway when the traffic had to pull to the side for a
police car hurrying toward the Anna Maria Bridge. We
all resumed driving after the policeman passed and re-
sumed our approach to our bridge when we saw the red
lights flashing and the gates on the incoming and out-
going sides of the bridge going down.
Behind us in the distance we heard more sirens and
saw the red lights of a fire truck coming toward our
draw bridge. In less than a minute our fire truck passed
us and sped over the draw bridge.
It was a very wonderful sight to see. Everything
went so smoothly and swiftly which proves "our exist-
ing bridge" can handle any emergency and without any
problems.
Our existing bridge should be rehabilitated and not
replaced by a 65-foot high bridge that would probably
have had to be closed in that severe, high wind storm.

THOSE WERE THE fAYS
Part 16, The Roaring Twenties
by June Alder


Prohibition-era speakeasies were kept well supplied with liquor thanks to the
enterprise of smugglers.


SMUGGLERS'

PARADISE


One day in December 1923 three
Bradentown teenagers decided to take a
voyage down to Sarasota, neglecting to
tell their parents what they were up to.
They got more excitement than they
bargained for.
The way the Evening Herald told it:
"Tolbert Pollard, Sim Harvey and Dan
Daugherty, three local lads ranging from
14 to 17 years of age, disappeared from
their homes last Thursday just in time to
be hit by the heaviest rainy period of the
winter. They came back Sunday tired,
hungry and wet and glad to be home
again.
"They went away in a boat making
the inside passage as far as Sarasota and
spending two nights in an old shack on
Anna Maria Island. It was the same
house where the sheriff recently found
about 500 quarts of smuggled-in-booze
cached, and the lads had thrills of fear as
they found the wrecked launch the
booze-runners had used."
Anna Maria was very much part of
the rumrunning business Prohibition intro-
duced into Florida in the 1920s. Our island
was ideal for rumrunners full of hidden
coves among the thick mangroves, with a
sparse population (less than 50 full-timers)
and conveniently near the new road up to
Tampa hub of southwest Florida smug-.
gling activities.
The way it worked, locals wanting
to make some easy money would be
paid in cash to rendezvous with a ship
out beyond the three-mile limit. Loaded
with cases of whiskey or rum, perhaps
even expensive scotch or champagne,
they'd make a dash for shore.
"If you could make it through
Longboat Pass, you were safe," one
Cortez old-timer recalled years later.
"Once in the Bay the water was too shal-
low for a Coast Guard boat to operate in.
You'd head for a certain cove and un-
load the hooch and it would be picked
up by someone else."
Not only liquor but hard drugs -
cocaine, heroin and morphine found
their way into Tampa, infamous for
gambling and vice as far back as 1824
when it grew up around the military post
of Fort Brooke. By 1922 when legend-
ary Hearst reporter Charles McArthur
wrote a sensational series of articles


about the city, Tampa had achieved a
reputation of being second only to New
York as a drug capital with at least
500 "dope fiends."
But liquor and narcotics trafficking
wasn't all. There was also a lucrative
trade in human beings.
Tampa's Mafia kingpins in alli-
ance with Cuba's corrupt government
smuggled countless Chinese and Euro-
peans past American custom officials.
The smugglers generally got paid be-
tween $750 and $1,000 per head. The
hapless aliens were stashed in the holds
of ships and dropped off like so many
coconuts on the beaches of barrier is-
lands like Anna Maria. Then, if all
went well, they were taken by car or
truck to Tampa or Tarpon Springs and
thence up north to the big metropolises.
On Anna Maria, a retired railroad
conductor named Nelson Cunningham,
a friend of pioneer George E. Bean,
was appointed justice of the peace to
watch out for wandering aliens. There
is an oft-told story that seven terrified
Chinese were nearly bitten to death by
mosquitoes when they spent the night
in the dank city jail on the edge of a
swamp full of bellowing alligators.
(You can see the roofless jail today on
Pine Avenue.)
Rumrunning ended after Prohibi-
tion was repealed, but gambling, drug
smuggling, prostitution and mob-style
violence are still flourishing within the
environs of Tampa Bay.
Anyone who was on Anna Maria
Island in 1980 remembers the hot Au-
gust afternoon when, returning from a
fishing trip, a Tampa physician and his
two sons were shot to death by a
"hitchhiker."
The killer jumped out of the car at
the Manatee Avenue stoplight and
headed for the Island Foods parking
lot, killing a Holmes Beach resident
along the way. There he jumped into a
waiting getaway car and roared away,
leaving pandemonium in his wake.
The crime remains unsolved to this
day.

Former official speaks out on
public works criticism
As you are aware, Cindy and I still receive and
enjoy your Island newspaper and look forward to it
being in our mailbox.
You also know that, while a resident of the Island,
I always attempted to not become involved in the poli-
tics and the less than professional antics that were al-
ways present during my tenure as the building official
of Bradenton Beach.
It has been my experience that the recent attack on
Phil Chamock, as printed in your newspaper, are not
unusual or of much concern, as any individual who
holds the position of building official in a small com-
munity can attest.
There are always individuals who are unwilling to
comply with the regulations and requirements that are
adopted by government and enforced by the official
having authority. The usual approach of these individu-
als is to make accusations of incompetence, harass-
ment, belligerence or attitude.
The only thing that prompted me to initiate this
correspondence is the fact that, in this instance, the
individual bringing the accusations claims to be a con-
tractor licensed in two states.
If this is correct then this individual is required, by
law, to be cognizant of all code requirements and of the
proper procedures in the filing of a complaint relating to
a code official. This procedure does not include attacks
through the press or attacks of a personal nature. The on-
going action reminds me of the complaint campaign ini-
tiated against myself while employed as the building of-
ficial for Bradenton Beach that, as a city employee, I was
unable to fight, due to professional ethics.
In all my dealings with Charnock I found him to be
a knowledgeable code professional and qualified for
the position held. Charnock's personal financial situ-
ation or living arrangements have no bearing relating
to his appointed position.
G. J. "Whitey" Moran, CBO,
State Licensed Building Code Administrator

Least we forget
Due to an oversight on my part, proper acknowl-
edgment was not made to the generous contribution
made by Fashions by Irene to the Spring Luncheon and
Fashion Show sponsored by St. Bernard's Ladies
Guild.
Special thanks are also due to Rita Total, chairman
of this very successful affair.

The controversial Privateers "boat-float."

A boat-float Ark-like tale
Editor's Note: The following letter was addressed to
Holmes Beach Mayor Bob VanWagoner, with a copy
sent to The Islander Bystander.
I was deeply saddened by the article which per-
tained to the removal of the Privateer float from its
corner lot on Clark Drive in Holmes Beach. Know-
ing that the float is a constant reminder of the mys-
tique, tradition and a legacy of which is typically
"Island" in philosophy, I am concerned with the
impression that its obvious absence may have on the
youth of Anna Maria. For at least 15 years that float
has been a symbol of "Island Philosophy" which
permeates the lives of the youth who have grown up
on the Island.
As a youth myself, growing up in Holmes Beach,
I can recall many names of the men who were also as-
sociated with this mystique and legacy of giving. Men
such as Stewart Hawkins, Freddy Hutchinson, Earl
Torgeson, Snooks Adams, the Holmes Brothers, the
Van Ostenbridge brothers, Earl Mowrey and Ernie
Cagnina. It was a time when neighbors helped neigh-
bors. There was an emphasis on the positive as opposed
to the negative. Their influence was immeasurable.
Without them and assuredly others, the children of this
Island would not have had much.
That legacy and tradition was in essence carried
on by many notable persons, not the least of which
are the Privateers. Men and women who have con-
tributed thousands of working hours and literally
thousands of their own dollars in order to promote
the betterment of the youth of Anna Maria Island.
People such as Whitney Horton, Andy Tooms,
Norm and Charlotte McKelvey, Pat Geyer, Roger
Mousseau, John Swager and the many other mem-
bers who have sweated and toiled. Their only pur-
pose in doing so was to see that child's face when re-
ceiving a gift at Christmas or during Kids Day, or
when the float passed in a parade, or whep that stu-
dent graduating from one of the local high schools
would walk up to the podium on July Fourth and
receive money to use as a scholarship to MCC (three
available) or the $2,000 scholarship that may be used
at any university. You see, there are no administra-
tive costs in this organization, no one receives a sal-
ary.
Again, all of the above, and much more, is done
purely for the genuine, sincere gratification of help-
ing the Youth on the Island.
What I am trying to say is that the children of this
Island do not deserve not being able to see this symbol
of immediate recall of gratification and positive feed-
back. The Privateers, all 40 or so members, do not de-
serve this "slap in the face" for all that they have done.
Island tradition, philosophy and mystique has been
erased.
My query concerning the removal of the float is
whether due process was done, or whether all of the de-
cision making was done in the "Sunshine." At my last
recollection, a compromise and an amendment to the
ordinance was to be worked out by the city commis-
sion. This would indeed comply with the Island phi-


losophy of "neighbor helping neighbor" and "focusing
upon the positive" in order to create a "win, win" situ-
ation. Instead, without the knowledge of the Privateers,
the owner of the property was "threatened" with a $250
per day fine if the float was not removed. Is that due
process? Was the commission and the public aware that
the owner of the property was capable of being fined?"
Are there other alternatives within the City Code in
order to solve the problem?
This whole scenario reminds me of the "spoof" on
the Noah's Ark story. God came to Noah and told him
to build an Ark, warning him that it would rain for 40
days and 40 nights in order to destroy the earth. Upon
the scheduled date, God began to make it rain. Look-
ing down on earth, God found Noah sitting on a vacant
lot without the Ark, crying.
When God asked why he was crying, Noah told
the Lord while trying to work on the Ark, someone
anonymously complained. "It seems as though I was
making banging sounds and too much noise as I
worked," Noah said. "I complied with what the city
asked me to do, then I found that after my Ark was
completed I would be charged a fee just to parade
through the city. There was a mountain of red tape
that I would be asked to complete every time I was
to do a good deed. The mayor did not want my Ark
on this property. The city commission was willing to
work out a compromise with me, but without me
knowing it the mayor told the owner of the property
that he would fine him if the Ark was to stay there."
With all of this the rain stopped. Noah looked up
to the sky with glee calling for God. Upon seeing that
God was looking down on Noah, Noah asked, "Now
that the rain has stopped does that mean that you are not
going to destroy the Earth?"
"No," said God, humbly. "It seems as though
someone already has!"
In conclusion I wish to express to you that the
viewpoints and opinions expressed in this letter are
exclusively mine. This is in no way to represent a re-
action of the Anna Maria Island Privateers. This was
written solely for the purpose of giving you an idea of
the affect of what you have done. I am responsible for
every word. I just happen to be a very proud member
of a great giving organization, the Anna Maria Island
Privateers.
Will Stokes, Bradenton
This could happen to you
How would you like to own a house across the
street from a cellular communications tower rising 155
feet and humming loudly 24 hours a day?
That's what will happen to me. And it could hap-
pen to you, too. This island is too small for all of us not
to be affected.
If the Holmes Beach City Commissioners don't
reverse their approval of a special exception to the
city's land development code, this monstrosity will be
on its way.
So call Smith Realtors, the proposed lessor for the
GTE tower and call the Holmes Beach commissioners
to register your concern before their next hearing.

Big day ahead again for Snooks and his kids


By Jim Hanson
Islander Correspondent
The 43rd annual Snooks Adams' Kids' Day is
coming up on June 14, and its sponsors and beneficia-
ries are doing some serious planning.
The big event, free to every youngster in the area,
will be sponsored again this year by the Privateers, the
not-so-serious outfit with a very serious mission -
making life better and more enjoyable for Anna Maria
Island.
Kids' Day will be from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. at
Bayfront Park in Anna Maria City.
The celebration was created in 1954 by the man
who then and subsequently spent his days keeping
Anna Maria straight but not rigid. Snooks Adams was
deputy sheriff for years, then chief of police of Holmes
Beach and finally its best-known retiree.
He will be at Kids' Day, as he has been at all of
them.
Born in Cortez, he was raised with five brothers
and three sisters. He has spent all of his life in Cortez
or on the Island, with time out for service in he Navy.
He was a builder of seawalls until he joined the
Manatee County Sheriff's Department and for years
was the only police officer on the Island.
In 1954 he loaded up as many youngsters as his
Jeep would hold and took them on an outing at the
south end of the Island, later named Coquina Beach.

There were no paved roads to that part of the Island and
no bridge to Longboat Key, he recalls.
He cooked hot dogs and opened Coca-Colas for the
boys; no parents were allowed.
Over the next few years the annual outing moved
to Manatee Beach, girls started attending and the Lions
Club and Island residents helped.
Adams became chief of police in Holmes Beach in
1963, and stayed in the job until retiring in 1980. That's
when he turned Kids' Day over to the Privateers, an
Island-wide organization devoted to good times and
good deeds.
The retired chief and wife Elizabeth live in Holmes


Beach and he still attends and supports Kids' Day.
What he started with a dozen kids has grown in atten-
dance to 150 in 1990 and to 500 in more recent years.
Some parents participate now, some of them part of the
early Snook Adams' Kids' Days.
This year's big event is free to all youngsters from
Anna Maria Island, Longboat Key. and Manatee
County. It will feature dozens of games starting at 11
a.m., best-dressed little pirate contest at noon,
sandcastle building contest from 11 to 2.
Free hot dogs, Coca-Cola and Domino's Pizzas
will be dished out all through the day. Further informa-
tion, 778-1238 or 704-2599.

The Island Poet
Most of us who have changed our residence and moved fai away,
Were saddened we couldn't visit our loved ones' graves Memorial Day.
But a grave is just green grass with a memorial stone,
With the remains of a loved one who has finally gone home.
And I am sure if we say a prayer and tell them of our love,
And just how they are missed, they will know from above.
And if we keep them in our thoughts and prayers everyday,
They will be with us always though their remains are far away.
Bud Atteridge

Islander searches, finds his roots


By Jim Hanson
Islander Correspondent
Pete Milazzo is heading east again to where he fi-
nally found his family, his roots and a promising new
career.
Last trip out, he brought back his brand new "old"
Mom to show her his Bradenton Beach business, and
soon he'll bring his gigantic brother who makes six-
foot-five Milazzo look puny.
At the moment Milazzo is busy showing an en-
tranced Mom his country, putting together the U.S. end
of his new housing business and figuring out ways to
please his partner, the Polish government.
On his May trip Milazzo will go again to Wroclaw,
Poland. His first journey there took him most of his 34
years.
He was born Piotr Dariusz Popiolek in Poland. His
mother gave him up for adoption when he was a baby
on orders from her mother-in-law-to-be. He ended up
adopted by Americans John and Barbara Guzewicz,
who reared him on Anna Maria Island.
When Pete was 13 his stepfather died, leaving pa-
pers showing the boy was adopted.
"I started to wonder who I was, what kind of
people I came from, why I wasn't with them, what my
real family was like, their medical history and things
like that," he said.
His stepmother was no help, he recalls, apparently
not wanting to risk losing him. And he didn't want to
go to Poland to seek his roots because he had dual citi-
zenship and young Poles were required to do two
years' military service.
A strapping young man, he gravitated to construc-
tion work and soon went into the business for himself,
buying and refurbishing and renting properties. Along
the way he acquired A Place in the Sun resort in
Bradenton Beach, where he serves on the city's plan-
ning and zoning board and the Better Business Bureau.
He also acquired a family of his own, and a name.
He married into a bunch of happy, boisterous outgoing
Italians, which gave him an understanding of and ap-
preciation for family. He and his new wife Rose wanted
to be sure that their children, unlike their father, had a
well documented name. He made his wife's maiden
name, Milazzo, his own.
He kept wondering who put him in the world.
When Communist rule collapsed in 1991, began to see
possibilities of finding out.
He went to Poland in 1993 and found a cousin, who
helped him hire an attorney to search the records. His

mother lived in Wroclaw. He drove there. She hadn't
heard of Pete yet, was out of town and didn't show up
until he had left for the U.S. But he met his sister,
Agnieszka Krawiec, whom he brought to Bradenton.
His stepmother died and his mother phoned, all
within a week in 1995. "She was weeping with joy,"
Milazzo remembers. "She told me she wrote me letters,
but I guess my adopted mother didn't pass them along
to me. She said she'd always known I'd come and find
her, she just didn't know when."
He wasn't rejected. He wasn't familyless, but had
six blood brothers and sisters. "It's really a joyous feel-
ing," he says.
He and Rose went back in 1996 and met Mom,
who is 54 now, a retired seamstress. She turned out to
be "a really happy, lively person." Met the rest of the
family, too, including the 23-year-old brother who
looks down on Pete from his six-foot-eight-inch height.
He also launched a new business helping Ameri-
can companies set up businesses in Poland. "It's a big
booming country with a vigorous economy now," he
says.
He got the minister of agriculture interested, and


Pete and the government are deep into a program to
build 150,000 houses for the poor. They are prefabri-
cated units which will be built in a factory being set up
by the former minister, who oversaw all factories un-
der the Communists.
The Polish government is financing the project
along with support from a private trust fund in the U.S.
Pete's big "little" brother is his superintendent in-coun-
try.
Meanwhile, he is exploring markets for Polish
crystal, which the ex-director of factories has offered
to manufacture if Milazzo will import the product to the
U.S.
And traveling: He'll spend one week per month in
Poland from now on.
And entertaining Mom. She arrived just in time for
Mother's Day and "she loves it here, she's really at
ease. She planned to be here for six months, but I bet
she won't be going back."
He hopes to bring the whole family to the U.S., and
is especially enjoying getting to know his mother.
"I just love showing her what her first son has done
with the life she gave me."


Kids at play with nature, Grandpa at Leffis Key
By Kevin P. Cassidy


Islander Correspondent
Buses carried 150 students from Orange Ridge
Bullock Elementary School to Leffis Key in
Bradenton Beach on Tuesday and Thursday to cul-
minate their studies on sea life.
The students toured Leffis Key's BayWalk,
observing native plants and birds. They took note
of the usual species of coastal birds, brown peli-
cans and white egrets, while learning about the
delicate nature of an estuary.
The students then found themselves wielding
shovels and straining boxes in an attempt to find
shells in the sediment. Unfortunately the students
found an abundance of shattered and broken glass
in addition to shells. They loaded up the broken
glass and put it where litter is supposed to be de-
posited.
The last activity of the day had them out in the
seagrass flats with. Islander Gib Bergquist.
Bergquist, known to many as the "Cracker," was
most pleased with the students calling him
"Grandpa."
On the flats, the kids netted young pinfish,
shrimp, sea horse, pipefish and blue crabs. They
even found a young stingray. They took the speci-
mens and put them in an aquarium for closer ob-
servation. Following observation and having asked
questions about their "catch," they put all of the
unharmed sea creatures back where they found
them.
The children were tired at the end of the day -


Some of the students got up-close-and-personal with one of the aquariums holding specimens found in the
waters off Leffis Key. Islander Photo: Kevin Cassidy


several napped on the way home but they learned a
lot of different and new things about their environment
that they will likely never forget.


It was apparent they had a lot of fun, though it
was tough to determine who had more, "Grandpa"
or the students!

Concerned
citizens work to
save pristine land
from development
County residents rallied Saturday at DeSoto Na-
tional Memorial and raised $28,000 to help buy a pris-
tine piece of property adjacent to the memorial.
Fundraising efforts have been spearheaded by a
group called Friends of Riverview Pointe. The $28,000
raised at the event will be added to $52,000 already
raised toward the citizen-contribution goal of
$100,000.
The nine-acre property was slated to become an
upscale development called Riverview Pointe when
residents appealed to the Manatee County Commission
to purchase the property for a public park. At a com-
mission meeting on May 6, Sarasota developer Tom


Mannausa agreed to allow two weeks for citizens to
raise enough money to help purchase the property.
The appraised value of the property is $1.9 million.
In addition to setting a sales price of $1.8 million,
Mannausa has donated $10,000 to the fundraising ef-

of the purchase price.

Wild for Woody
Fans of Woody Harrelson went wild for auto-
graphs during the filming of "Palmetto," the movie,
at the Anna Maria City Pier last week.
The production manager alerted us they would
have crews at the pier early in the day but the cast call


wasn't until 6 p.m. That didn't stop the throngs of fans
from waiting all afternoon for a glimpse of Woody -
finally achieved at about 8 p.m.
Did you catch that Harley he rode into town on?
Fans that waited it out were rewarded with an ap-
pearance and autograph session with Woody in the
crowds around 10 p.m. More patient fans, those that
arrived at the pier set after midnight, were rewarded
with more casual chats and "moments" with the star.
Lots of local folks were accepted as extras for the
filming, earning from $25 for "hanging out" in the back-
ground to as much as $800 that being for a close shot
of feet, sans special shoes, walking past "the body."
Harrelson, long a star of television's "Cheers" and

movies including "Kingpin" and most recently "The
People vs Larry Flint," managed to make himself
fondly remembered by Anna Maria fans.
We heard, "Nice guy," everywhere from nearly
everyone.
Now, with life back to normal, it seems almost
boring. Or is it just that it's 'tween seasons and cannon
fire down Gulf Drive wouldn't be noticed.

Ain't life grand?
Or as they say in Bradenton Beach, life is splendid.
Splendido, acutally. The southernmost city on Anna
Maria Island is celebrating the long, long, long-awaited
opening of Splendido Mediterranean Cuisine restaurant
at the comer of Bridge Street and Gulf Drive.
Diners have waited for Splendido to open since
before La Toscano opened in Holmes Beach in Febru-
ary, and closed in April, prompting some to award it the
"most short-lived" title as far as the history of restau-
rants on Anna Maria Island go.
Anxious diners also waited through extensive remod-
eling of Big Bamboo in Holmes Beach, all the while
watching improvements take place down the road.
Now those fans of things new are awaiting the fi-
nal transformation from Toscano to Biondo at the
former location of Turtles.
Surely Splendido will take "the cake" for lengthiest
renovations. Starting long before all the others, and long
before season, it has just opened. It should be in the run-
ning for most extensive signage as well. Menu temptations
are posted in nearly ever window. Neon backlit letters on
the building proclaim the location offshore.
Items on the menu include a Mediterranean crab
cake, spanakopita, classic Caesar salad, bouillabaisse,
tortellini, penne and linguine varieties along with many
Italian specialties.
So, wait no more. The menu says, "Laughter is
brightest where food is best," and they're chuckling
away in Bradenton Beach.

Foot PFacts 2
by Dr. Clare H. Starrett
Podiatrist
THE FOOT SOLDIERS OF DIABETES
For many people, the word "diabetes" brings up images of
special diets, blood testing, and insulin shots. For people who
have dealt with diabetes directly, though, foot care is likely to top
the list of things on their mind. The feet are the "ground troops"
of diabetes in many ways, acting as sentinels against serious
problems, bearing responsibility for helping keep the rest of the
body healthy, and carrying heavy risks of casualty. Careful
monitoring of the feet may reveal cold spots, for example, which
can be a tip-off to circulation problems, or hot spots, which may
signify the presence of an infection. Without treatment, any
disruption to the diabetic foot, from tiny cracks in the skin to
changes in sensation, can lead to the kind of infection and tissue
breakdown that could threaten the entire body.
People with diabetes should examine their feet every day,
either with a hand mirror or by having someone else do a
thorough check. They should see a podiatrist periodically for
a professional examination.
For a complete podiatric care for everyone in your family, I
welcome your call at ISLAND PODIATRY.

Space travel Island style
What is it like to travel in outer space? Anne
Kinnan's fifth-grade class at Anna Maria Elemen-
tary School found out at five space education sta-
tions set up in their classroom. With a kindergarten
partner looking on, the students pictured study
velocity at Space Station 1. Other stations simulated
eating weightless food (by capturing tossed marsh-
mallows in one's mouth) and a student's ability to
control a spacecraft in an emergency (blindfolded
and turned about, each student was quickly given an
emergency situation mandating he or she to hit the
appropriate control on a blackboard panel). -

Tip dominates action
Joey Mousseau has been on a "hot streak," both on
the mound and at the plate.
Tip of the Island beat Haley's Motel 10-1 with
Mousseau going two for three with a home run, three
RBIs and three runs scored while pitching three score-
less innings to get the win.
After Saturday's game, Mousseau had pitched 12
straight scoreless innings and reached base 22 consecu-
tive times via base hit or walk before Hunter Green
induced him to pop up to Chad Alger at third.
Haley's was led by Jordan Bowers, who reached
base twice on a single and a walk, Bobby Cooper's
double and Alger who went two for three.
Jeremy LeGrand got things started for the Tip with
a double just inside the first base line. After moving up
on a passed ball, LeGrand easily scored on Mousseau's
infield single to take a 1-0 lead.
Michael Pocino followed Mousseau in the lineup
and reached base on a walk. After Mousseau advanced

to third on a passed ball and Taylor Manning struck
out, Haley's walked five consecutive batters, allowing
Mousseau, Pocino, Richardson and Luther Sasser to
waltz home with a 5-0 lead.
The top of the second saw everyone in the stands
holding a collective breath. Cooper hit an opposite-
field double and then moved to third on a stolen base.
After Aaron Lowman struck out, Dusty Andricks
stepped up to the plate and got "beaned" in the head
from a high hard one from Mousseau, who was visibly
upset. Andricks was unhurt to the relief of everyone in
attendance and Mousseau regained his composure to
strike out Blake Tyre.
Tip came back in the bottom of the inning to score
two more runs when Mousseau walked, moved up on
a passed ball and easily scored on Pocino's single.
Manning then reached base on a fielder's choice and
moved to second on a passed ball. Sasser reached base
on an error by the third baseman, sending Manning to
third, who scored when the catcher couldn't hold onto
a pitch from Hunter Green to make the score 7-0 after
two.
The third inning saw Tip score another run to ex-
tend their lead to 8-0 when Kyle Dale reached on a
walk and scored when Haley's first baseman had
trouble handling a grounder from LeGrand.
Bowers got things going for Haley's when he led
off with a long single to left field and moved to third

on consecutive passed balls. Chris Nelson reached base
on a walk, then drew the throw from catcher Brandon
Roberts who nailed Nelson at second. Bowers easily
scored what would turn out to be Haley's only run of
the game.
Haley's threatened to score again in the fifth inning
when Alger reached second on an infield single and
Bowers walked. After a double steal by Alger and
Bowers, Nelson ripped a line drive down the third base
line that Logan Bystrom snagged for the second out.
Mark Sankey then struck out to end the inning.
Kim DiPaola led off the bottom of the inning with
a walk. After Peter Dowling struck out and LeGrand
flew out on a nice play by Nelson at second, Mousseau
hit a two-run homer to end the scoring and the game
10-1.
The home run was the fifth Mousseau "parked" in
left field and leaves him three short of his eight-homer
season goal. Success for Mousseau will mean coach
Lou Fiorentino will be the loser in the season-long bet
and shave his head.
Rumor has it, rival coaches are urging their pitch-
ers to groove one into Mousseau's wheel house, ensur-
ing Fiorentino's appointment with the barber.
In other action, Kiwanis eked out a 3-1 victory over
Jim Boast Dodge behind John Cicero's complete-
game, four-hit pitching. Brian Faasse also pitched a
complete game allowing only one hit in absorbing a
heart-breaking loss that saw Kiwanis manufacture their

Jim Boast Dodge beat Haley's by a score of 10-2
Wednesday night as Billy Bob Goldschmitt pitched a
complete game and recorded seven strike outs for the
win. Goldschmitt also helped himself by scoring four
runs and was supported by Michael Cagnina who went
two for three including a triple. Haley's was led by
Tyler Krauss who went two for two and Brandon Rob-
erts who went two for three at the plate.
Thursday night's action had AMFD winning what
turned out to be a close 12-10 decision over Kiwanis.
AMFD led 12-2 going into the bottom of the sixth in-
ning before Kiwanis scored eight runs and left the bases
loaded to fall just short of a come-back victory.


Steve Yencho got the pitching win with four in-
nings of solid work, allowing three hits, two runs and
recording seven strike outs. Ryan Allis had trouble
finding the plate, putting 11 runners on base via walks
and took the loss despite giving up only three hits.
AMFD was led at the plate by Ryan Mijares who
had a three-run triple and Ryan Keller who had a two-
run triple. Kiwanis' hitting stars were Cicero, who went
two for three with a home run and two RBIs and Bobby
Gibbons who went three for four with three RBIs.

Rays return, Hemingway fest on, Havana trip, too


By Bob Ardren
Outdoor Perspectives
Shoals of cownose rays are appearing off local
beaches. Hundreds and sometimes even thousands of
the creatures in a single school will show up off the
beach as they move inshore this time of the year to feed
and bear their young.
A cousin of the solitary and more dreaded sting
ray, cownose rays still manage to scare folks in a
couple of ways. Sometimes a school will surround
waders or swimmers. The trick there is to just stand still
and let them pass.
Even scarier is when a school of cownose rays
come by with their wing tips out of the water. Most
folks think they're seeing the dorsal fins of sharks and
really panic, but it's only the gentle cownose.
Two pretty good sized schools were patrolling
along a beach I was strolling Sunday morning, so ap-
preciate the sight, don't let them keep you out of the
water, but also don't forget to do the "sting ray shuffle"
as you go into the water. There's plenty of those crea-
tures along our beaches right now too.
Like all members of the ray family, sting rays
aren't aggressive, but they understandably resent being
stepped on. And if you're unlucky enough to do that,
there's a fair chance you'll have an experience ("Sting"
hardly begins to cover the painful sensation) that will
forever remind you to do the shuffle this time of year.

Doran Cushing, publisher of Southwinds magazine and
unofficial spokesman for the event.
In fact, officials have closed entries as they try to
retain control of the fleet leaving Tampa Bay Friday,
May 23, and expected to arrive in Cuba on May 25.
Joining the race from Anna Maria, sailor John
VanZandt says only 14 spinnaker class and 30 non-
spinnaker boats are racing, with all the rest falling into
the cruising class.
Sounds as though a lot of people just plan to laze their
way down the coast and across the Straits of Florida.

Swimming the Straits
Speaking of the Straits of Florida, how about Susie
Maroney swimming from Havana to Key West in 24
hours, 34 minutes? Some says she's the first person to ever
swim the distance while others say it's already been done.
Regardless, as someone who's sailed those straits
a few times, I'm in awe of the 22-year-old Australian's
feat. So was ABC television which named her "Person
of the Week" last week.
Before you decide to give it a try, remember that
Maroney had practice two successful English Chan-
nel crossings before trying this one.

Record attempt underway
Speaking of crossings, the Atlantic Challenge Cup
left Sandy Hook, N.J., on May 17, in an attempt to
break the 92-year-old trans-Atlantic sailing record of
12 days and four hours. The course runs from Sandy
Hook 3,000 miles to the Lizard, a spit of land off the
southwest coast of England.
The record has been broken by a few modern rac-
ing yachts that waited for just the right weather, but
never in a scheduled competition forced to get under-
way at a predetermined time.

Longboat sign saga
Remember those "No Trespassing" signs still posted
in the canals around Bay Isles on Longboat Key?
Two weeks ago the Longboat Town Commission

voted 4-3 to amend its sign code to allow "No Tres-
passing" signs outside the guidelines of more usual
signs on the key. But at the same time, the commission
voted not to allow signs to be placed in the water.
You'd think that would end the saga of the "No
Trespassing" signs in the canals. But it doesn't.
Commissioner Charles Loiselle announced after a
10-minute recess at that meeting that he wanted to
change his vote to allow signs in the water.
Loiselle said he'd made a mistake and wanted to
change his vote. Loiselle was convinced however to
wait until a second reading of the ordinance at the June
meeting to change his vote.
Monday, I asked Loiselle why he wants to change
his vote. He explained that since Bay Isles owns the
land on both sides of the canals, and that the canals
were dug from Bay Isles' land, he now reasons the
canals must be privately owned.
When I asked if that means the water in the canals
is still public and as long as we don't drop an anchor
or wade along the bottom that we'd be legal, he just
shrugged. The whole situation remains wacky.

Hemingway on Sanibel?
It's true the Hemingway family, or what's left
of it has moved the annual Hemingway Days Fes-
tival from Key West to Sanibel. And hey,. you over
there, stop that smirking.
The Hemingway family decided that the 16-year-
old Key West event was a bit rowdy for its tastes, and
besides, they have a chance to make some bucks off
this new one. For example, instead of a look-alike con-
test, you'll have a chance to buy a $600 special edition
Hemingway Mont Blanc fountain pen.
Hmmm. Key West writer Ed Ditterline probably
put it best when he said, "I think Hemingway would
punch them in the jaw. He'd hit the ceiling, it is so out
of character with the man. He was the embodiment of
earthiness. He had no use for pretense."
Pretense? Sanibel?
See you next week.

Almost everything fishy is hungry right now


By Capt. Mike Heistand
Fishing is just about as good as it can get right now.
Tarpon are starting to move into the bays, snook and
redfish action is still hot and grouper angling in the
Gulf is judged to be excellent. Grab a rod and reel and
get out there!
Joseph at the Rod and Reel Pier said snook have
been hitting very well, as well as redfish, mackerel and
founder.
Kelly at the Anna Maria City Pier said anglers
there are catching a few pompano, mackerel and sting
rays.
Capt. Zack on the Dee Jay H said he's catching snook
up to 30 inches, reds up to 34 inches and trout to 25 inches
as well as flounder, jacks and tarpon are starting to show
all over. Offshore, look for cobia and kingfish.
Carl at Perico Island Bait & Tackle said wade
fishers are doing well with snook and a few scattered
trout. And here's some good news: shrimp are starting
to get into the jumbo range.
Capt. Mark Bradow said tarpon are getting
thicker and thicker, as are cobia near the beaches.
On my boat Magic we've caught reds up to 27


inches and snook up to 37 inches, plus some nice-sized
24-inch trout.
Capt. Glenn Corder on the Zula Mama said grou-
per fishing is still excellent offshore, but kingfish ac-
tion is starting to slow.
Capt. Tom Chaya said reds and snook are hot in
the bays, Spanish mackerel and cobia in the Gulf. He
also hooked a couple tarpon last week.
Bill at Island Discount Tackle said snook, reds
and some very large trout are in the bays, with kings,
cobia, grouper, snapper and amberjack the best bets in
the Gulf.
Capt. Mike Greig said cobia and tarpon are in the
Gulf and reds and snook are still active in the backwa-
ters.
Capt. Jason Henzell on the Neva-Miss said he's
finding gag grouper in the eight- to 15-pound range in
about 50 feet of water using cut bait. He's also still
bringing in kings using bomber lures and an occasional
barracuda.
Capt. Thom Smith said he's putting his charters
on lots of reds and snook.
Good luck and good fishing.
