Island recreational bike path on hold


By Pat Copeland
Islander Reporter
The Anna Maria Island Recreational Pathway
Committee and its bike path plan is on hold un-
til officials in Bradenton Beach and Holmes Beach
decide what action they want to take.
The committee began meeting in February at the
request of the Coalition of Barrier Island Elected Of-
ficials to develop an Island-wide bike and pedestrian
pathway. Members are Elaine Burkly, city commis-
sioner, and Larry Houser, both of Anna Maria; John
Chappie, city commissioner, and Jim Kissick of
Bradenton Beach; and Ron Robinson, city commis-
sioner, and Joan Perry of Holmes Beach.
The group's goals are to incorporate safe and effi-
cient recreational bicycle and pedestrian facilities on
the Island and promote bicycle and pedestrian activity
as an alternative means of safe transportation linking
major activities on the Island.
The group is concentrating on a recreational path


utilizing back streets and running the length of the Is-
land as recommended by the Holmes Beach Civic As-
sociation. This path will be an alternative to the
county's planned bike lanes, which will be on the
Island's major roads.
Burkly told committee members that Anna Maria
officials don't see any need for a recreational path in
their city.
"They want to focus on main routes," she said.
"They don't feel we have enough traffic on our side
streets at this time to warrant pursuing a secondary path
until we get our primary route done."
Chappie said Bradenton Beach officials are work-
ing on a gap in the path created by the Sandpiper Mo-
bile Home Park. The Holmes Beach Civic
Association's plan shows the route going through the
park.
"Some streets in the park are city owned and many
years ago the park agreed to an overall plan that when
they had to take a trailer out, they would not be able to


put it back exactly the way it was," he explained.
"There's a plan at city hall that shows how this is be-
ing done and our building official has talked with
people at the Sandpiper about this."
Chappie said he wants to bring the proposed rec-
reational pathway to the city commission to see how it
wants to handle the situation.
"It would be nice if we could work out some type
of compromise, for example, designate certain hours
when its use is not permitted," he said. "Like anyone
they are concerned about safety with strangers riding
through their community. There's a lot of good people
there and we don't want to displace anyone."
The group is also working on designs and funding
for signage for the path, as well as a public awareness
campaign that would include printing brochures with
a map of the designated and safety tips.
The group met with Manatee County officials in

Sea turtles on

schedule but


just wait
By Jim Hanson
Islander Correspondent
Despite an unusually early start, sea turtle nests are
running only about even with last year's score on Anna
Maria Island. But the boom season is just beginning.
Suzi Fox, who holds the state turtle conservation per-
mit for the Island, says her Turtle Watch volunteers have
found 19 nests on the beaches. That's far short of the to-
tal 196 nests here last year, but the rate is about the same.
Expect big things any time now, though. June is the
big month for mama sea turtles to dig their nests and
eject their eggs, tapering off into July.
June also usually sees the first hatchings. The first
nests here were in April, quite early because of the early
warm weather. Hatching follows in 55 days, Fox said.
That's when the trouble starts, though Fox expects
less problem this year than in the past.
Jerris Foote, senior biologist and coordinator of the
sea turtle program at Mote Marine Laboratory, said
hatchlings are programmed to go dowrislope from the
egg, away from shadows of land and toward the
horizon's lightness. Hit ti

Anna Maria bikers victims of town's lack of crime


By Anthony Seaton
Islander Reporter
Are Anna Maria kids who occasionally ride bikes
without all the proper equipment, or rollerblade across
the street, targeted by police because of the city's low
crime rate?
When it comes to enforcement of laws that are sel-
dom applied elsewhere, it appears so.
Manatee County Sheriffs Department spokesman
Dave Bristow says that the department's deputies of-
ten have nothing better to do than to write warnings or
tickets for such things as riding a bike without a light,
or rollerblading on the road.
"We probably enforce more [laws like that] out
there because there's nothing going on .... It's just real
quiet. We probably generate one and a half pages of
reports out there a day ... that's just incredible. We
have probably a hundred times that in town," Bristow
said.
"We try not to ticket, but it's done for safety rea-
sons, to educate them. If you get a ticket, it tends to get


your attention."
Anne Mousseau of Anna Maria says her son, Joey,
12, was pulled over recently by a deputy with lights
flashing, for not having a light on his bike.
The deputy said he had warned Joey three times
before, and so he was put in the back of the cruiser,
fingerprinted and given a $26 ticket.
"The deputy said the fingerprinting was done for
identification, but he knew Joey," Mousseau said.
"If the kids are warned once, then the officer sees
the violation again, if it's right in his face, then they're
probably going to get a ticket," Bristow said.
"I could see it if he was doing something more
drastic than not having a light, but it was kind of emo-
tional for him. He came home and said, 'Mom, I felt
like a criminal,'" said Mousseau.
Sheriffs spokesman Bristow says the department has
discontinued the practice of fingerprinting juveniles in
such situations following numerous complaints from
Anna Maria parents to the Anna Maria City Commission.
"We went back and looked at the law, and decided


it wasn't something we wanted to do. We decided it
wasn't proper," Bristow said.
Another city resident who says her son was "ha-
rassed" for skateboarding in front of his own home,
says the county deputies don't respect the island's
quaint nature and should take a more laid-back attitude.
Patricia O'Grady Parsels, Ph.D., suggested in a
letter to this newspaper that deputies who are bored
should be given something else to do. She suggests
cutting back on shifts or officers playing basketball
with kids at the community center.
She says that her son was denied permission to "go
get my mom and dad," by the deputy.
Bristow says, "If that happened, then our deputy
didn't use good discretion."
Bristow says his deputies can't ignore the state
laws that dictate rules governing bicycling and skating,
but it is up to the officer's discretion whether to ticket
or not in each case.
He said that with the end of the fingerprinting prac-
tice, "Hopefully, things will quiet down out there."


Street-end beautification
comes to Bradenton Beach
The first street-end beautification project in
Bradenton Beach is completed at Third Street South.
The small, raised shell area with extensive landscap-
ing and shade trees is the work of the city's Green
Dream Team and features a white wooden bench,
compliments of Berneitta Kays and family in memory
of her late husband, Hubert. The team is soliciting
residents and visitors to contribute funds for future
beautification projects to honor friends. Bench cost
is $400 and is tax deductible; the metal plaque is
another $20. Anyone interested should call city hall
at 778-1005. Green Dream Team members pictures

Island fishing tournament set for June 14


The annual Fishing the Islands Tournament is just
over the horizon, with greater prizes and expectations
than ever.
"Fish day" will be Saturday, June 14, from 6:30
a.m. until midnight if any fishers can hack it that long,
said Bill Lowman.
He and his wife Jennifer, through their Island Dis-
count Tackle, sponsor the tournament'each year "as a
way of putting something back into our community,"
he said.
So far the tournaments have put $19,000 there in

March and learned about the county's proposed four-
foot bike lanes on the Island's major roads as well as
a six- to eight-foot sidewalk for recreational bicyclists
and pedestrians.
The Sarasota/Manatee Metropolitan Planning Or-
ganization has funded bicycle lanes in Anna Maria and
Holmes Beach for 1999. Bradenton Beach officials are
currently applying for the same funding so all three
cities can construct the lanes simultaneously.
Anna Maria's funding is $264,000 and a route will
be implemented over the next three years. It includes
bike paths on Gulf Drive from the Holmes Beach city
limit to Pine Avenue, on Pine Avenue, North and South
Bay Boulevards and North Shore Drive from North
Bay Boulevard back to Pine Avenue. The city park
between Beach and Magnolia Avenues will also be
linked to the route.
Holmes Beach has $195,000 in funding to be used
for lanes along Gulf Drive from the Anna Maria city
limit to the Bradenton Beach city limit.


munity Center. Last year the Center's share was $8,000
and Lowman said he.hopes for more this year.
"This is a community event," he said. "Everybody
is welcome at everything. Anybody is welcome to fish
commercial, amateur, whatever."
Events will run virtually nonstop from the Cap-
tains' Meeting with roast pig Friday evening through
the Caribbean Picnic and awards celebration Sunday
afternoon. Those events will be at the Community
Center.
The main attraction, as always, will be the tourna-
ment itself on Saturday. It has its Offshore Division on
the Gulf and the Inshore Division in the bays and back-
waters. But they're divided mainly by fish Inshore
is open to snook, trout, red snapper and flounder, and
Offshore to 15 fish.
Inshore catches will be released, with each boat
issued a Polaroid camera and film and a measuring
device to record those fish.
For the Offshore Division, weigh-in stations will
be open at the Rod and Reel Pier and Mar Vista restau-
rant on Longboat Key. Both weigh-in locations will be
open until midnight.
Last year 130 boats participated and more are ex-
pected at this year's fifth annual tournament, said
Lowman. Entry fee is $175 per boat, with a limit of five
persons fishing per boat and six fish entered per boat.
Highlights of the three-day program:
Friday, June 13 --Captains' Meeting 5 to 8:30
p.m., with at least one representative from each boat
entered. Food, drinks, Steel Pan Dan music, roast pig
from the Bridge Tender Inn will be featured. Lowman
will explain the rules and the point system and answer
questions. There will be a "captain's bag" for each boat
with fishing lures, etc. Backwater Slam T-shorts by
Guy Harvey will be available for purchase.
Saturday, June 14 Fishing tournament to be-


gin at 6:30 a.m. and run from the time a boat goes into
the water until the results are in, as late as midnight to
allow offshore boats to fish until sundown and yet get
their catches to the weigh-in while it's still Saturday.
Cash prizes will be $5,000 for first place in each of
the two divisions, $2,000 for second places, $1,000
third places. Special prizes of $500 merchandise cer-
tificates from Island Tackle will be awarded for biggest
trout and biggest cobia. In addition, thousands of dol-
lars worth of merchandise prizes will be offered in al-
most every conceivable category.
A nighttime attraction again will be the scene at the
Rod and Reel, where the fisherfolk traditionally gather
for a post-tournament blast into the wee hours.
Sunday, June 15 Fishing the Islands Tourna-
ment Party starts at the Community Center at noon, this
year with a Caribbean Picnic theme. Music and food
will match the theme, said Lowman. There will be juice
bars, soda bars and bar bars. Music will be by the
Gumbo Boogie band, food by the Sandbar, Beach
House and Mar Vista kitchens. Lowman expects 500
or more meals to be served.
At 2 p.m. tournament results will be announced
and awards made with all due ceremony.
Each entry in the tournament will get two tickets
to the Sunday bash, but it is open to anyone at all,
Lowman stressed, with tickets available at the event or
in advance at Island Discount Tackle, $10 adults, $5
children 6-12, the under-6 tickets free.

Heart attack victim revived by firefighters


By Pat Copeland
Islander Reporter
The Anna Maria Fire District celebrated its first
save using an automatic external defibrillator last week
when firefighters "jump started" the heart of a man
having a heart attack.
Doug Wright, 45, of Tampa, was stricken while
visiting relatives at Mount Vernon condominium off
Cortez Road. Wright's father-in-law, who had re-
cently taken the district's course in cardiopulmonary
resuscitation, started CPR.
Several minutes later, firefighters Tim Hyden and
Chris O'Kelly, arrived on the scene and revived Wright
using the AED. The ambulance, which had been out of
the district, arrived and paramedics treated Wright and
transported him to the hospital.
When a person goes into cardiac arrest, the heart
goes into ventricular fibrillation.and the heart actually
begins quivering like a bowl of jelly. The AED deliv-


ers an electric shock to the heart muscle to correct the
imbalance in the rhythm.
The AED is very simple to use, Fire Chief Andy
Price said. It is hooked up to the patient. It analyzes the
heart's rhythm and tells the operator whether a shock
should be administered.
Price said the fire commission began exploring the
idea of purchasing AEDs for the district several years ago,
but the county didn't support the idea. When the commis-
sion became increasingly concerned about the county's
ambulances being relocated outside the district, the com-
mission renewed its efforts to purchase the equipment.
According to the American Heart Association, sud-
den cardiac arrest causes more than 300,000 deaths
each year in the United States because external
defibrillators arrive on the scene to late. If defibrillators
were more widely available to first responders, 20,000
to 100,000 lives could be saved.
The district joined several other districts to make

the purchase at a discounted rate of $6,000 per unit.
Between the Anna Maria and Westside districts, which
merged services earlier this year, there are four units.
Forty Anna Maria district personnel and volunteers
have been trained in the AED's use. Since their pur-
chase, AEDs have been used four times in the district.
"We feel what we spent really paid off," Price said.
"The cost is vindicated."

ANNA MARIA FOLKS TO


BOOST ISLAND


Anna Maria Key (Special)
- The citizens of Anna Maria
have come to the point where
they feel that improvements are
not being made fast enough to
suit the times and have deter-
mined to take a hand in this mat-
ter themselves in the future;
therefore they have organized
meetings of the residents to dis-
cuss the welfare and progress of
this community.
The last meeting was held at
the bathing pavilion and very *
well attended, many taking a
part in the discussion. Hon.
Wallace Tervin, representative
of this district in the Florida leg-
islature, gave a fine talk which
was very closely attended to, and
after further discussion, the mat-
ter of incorporation by the com-
munity was gone into quite fully. '
A committee was appointed "
of the interested parties which .-
will endeavor to have every one Overgrown Pine Ave
with interests at this end of the
island to be in attendance at the next meeting to be held
at the same place Tuesday evening at 7:30.

recesses of the 3,000-year-old tomb of King Tut; and the
daily activities of Branch Rickey's St. Louis Cardinals at
their spring training camp in Bradentown.
No wonder the above dispatch from Anna Maria Key
was stuck in the back pages of the Herald between the
"Amusements" column and the list of registrants at the
Tourist Information Bureau. Who cared about a few


oddballs living out on "the
beach"? To be sure, Braden-
town folks visited there more
often than they used to, now that
there was a bridge to the Is-
land-but only to swim and fish
on weekends and holidays.
You had to be peculiar to
live year-round on Anna
Maria Key. An Eden it wasn't.
That bridge built in 1921
almost had no place to go. For
just before it was finished the
fearsome October hurricane of
1921 (the worst to strike
Tampa Bay since 1848, it was
said) almost obliterated the
Key. A 75-mile-an-hour wind
drove foaming 10-foot high
waves clear across it in many
spots and sheared off the north

S-that Will Bean hadn't bull-
dozed down in 1910-11 for his
Anna Maria Beach Resort got
killed off. So did the coconut palms the son of the
island's first settler had planted down the middle of the
wide avenue (Pine) leading from his long dock on the
Bay to the hotel and bathhouse along the Gulf.
Bean's dream resort was in trouble long before the
hurricane, however. He soon ran out of cash, got bailed out
by St. Petersburg developer C. M. Roser, and finally lost
it all to Roser in 1917. The war in Europe put a damper
on tourism and the resort never recovered. By the time
Roser managed to peddle it to a New Hampshire corpo-
ration in December 1922, it was decidedly down-at-the-
heel. The unpaved streets were in a wretched condition.
There was only a winding horse-and-buggy trail down
south to the bridge. So Cortez Beach, with its new, mod-
em bathhouse, was getting all the business from the tour-
ists coming across in their flivvers.
The brief minutes of that meeting, recorded in
flowing Spencerian handwriting on the stiff, yellowing
pages of a small ledger now kept in the safe at the Anna
Maria City Hall tell us that four men took leadership.
Temporary chairman S. N. "Sam" Davis, was the
operator of the bathing pavilion (located where the Sand
Bar Restaurant is today), and C. W. Bonham, temporary
secretary, was among the early (1912 or 1913) buyers of
a Bean-built house, near the C. N. Roser home just up
from the dock on the Bay. The members of a committee
to "wait upon absent residents" consisted of W. M.
"Mitch" Davis, fishing guide and builder of the tiny
church and school as well as most of the homes in the
resort community; H. C. Ditmus, a former circusman and
vaudeville performer; and Bonham. Their task was to get
a "good turnout" for the next meeting, five days away. It
would be a momentous one.

Now, a word from our sponsor ...
Something new in the way of entertainment is the
"visual education and radio exhibition" advertised to be
given at the.Anna Maria Hotel on the evening of Feb.
28. The films will cover a number of health features,
conservation work, nature studies, travel, cowboy
sports, winter sports and other things. It promises to
provide an evening of unusual entertainment.
The hotel has been full up for some time and any-
one contemplating a stay here had better make reser-
vations in advance or run the chance of being com-
pelled to seek other accommodations.

County approves purchase of land for public park


By Pat Copeland
Islander Reporter
Manatee County Commission Chambers erupted in
applause last week when the board voted to purchase
the Riverview Pointe property for a public park.
"I think it's great!" exclaimed Pierre Ficheroulle,
chairman of Friends of Riverview Pointe, grinning
from ear to ear. "It's been a real team effort."
The nine-acre property adjacent to DeSoto Na-
tional Memorial contains threatened species, Indian
middens, a natural spring and six habitats. It was slated
to become an upscale development called Riverview
Pointe, when residents appealed to the commission to
purchase the property for a park.
Sarasota developer Tom Mannausa agreed and the
purchase price was set at $1.8 million. Commissioners
gave the public two weeks to raise $100,000 to help
with the purchase and the Friends formed to take on the
task. In addition, County Administrator Ernie Padgett
and his staff began seeking a grant.
Two week ago commissioners tried to lower the
price by negotiating with Mannausa but no agreement
was reached. This week, negotiations were successful.

Negotiating a deal
"Since the last meeting, Mr. Mannausa agreed to
the $1.8 million to be shown as the purchase price and
he's willing to donate back to the county a contribution
of $140,000, which would mean a net purchase price
of $1,660,000," Padgett explained.
Padgett said the county is seeking a grant from the
Florida Communities Trust which would supply 75
percent of the purchase price. The other 25 percent

would be shared by the county and the Southwest
Florida Water Management District. However, after
talking with Ann Perry of the FCT, he said the county
may be able to qualify for an 88 percent grant.-
"She said it was realistic because this county has
a good track record and has contributed a considerable
amount of money to land purchases," Padgett noted.
"But there's no guarantee that we'll get it."
Padgett said the county's share of 12 1/2 percent of
the purchase price is $216,000. When Mannausa's
$140,000 donation is deducted from that, the final figure
is $76,000. The Friends have collected cash donations of
$57,757 and pledges of $42,295 for a total of $100,052.
"If we meet the criteria and the grant is there, the
county would have very little money in the pur-
chase," he noted.
Commission Chairman Pat Glass pointed out that
the grant is not competitive and applications are con-
sidered on a case-by-case basis.
Padgett said his staff is also working with the
Catholic Diocese of Venice on creating an access
across its property between the memorial and
Riverview Pointe. The diocese sold the Riverview
Pointe property to Mannausa but retained a 150-foot
strip containing a 60-foot-high cross honoring early
Catholic missionaries.
In one option the diocese would maintain ownership
but allow access across its property via a foot bridge. In a
second option the diocese would maintain the waterfront
portion and sell the remainder to the county.

Public pleas, commission agrees
Fisheroulle told commissioners if the county does
not get the grant, the Friends will support the purchase
with further fundraising efforts.
A representative of the Citizens Advisory Commit-
tee of the Sarasota Bay National Estuary Program
spoke to commissioners' concerns about taking the
property off the tax roll. He said according to studies,
the cost of implementing services to a residential de-
velopment is $1.25 for every dollar collected in taxes.
"If the land is left in a preservation status, not in-
cluding the cleaner air and the better eco-tourism, it

averages about 75 to 80 cents for every dollar of
taxes," he pointed out.
"We've spoken previously about our position on
the potential for human remains being there," said
Sheridan Murphy, state executive director of the
American Indian Movement. "Indigenous people tend
to be the only people that governments and legal grave
robbers or archaeologists are allowed to dig up."
Murphy said the county is in a unique position with
both the public and the developer willing to help assist
in the purchase.
"It would be a sad thing to see that (cooperation)
go to waste," he noted.
Commissioner Jonathan Bruce made the motion to
purchase the property and Commissioner Amy Stein
seconded it.
Commissioner Lari Ann Harris said she supports
the purchase but has "grave reservations if the grant
does not come through."
"It's a connection via the water to Emerson Point
which will be a great asset in the future," Commis-
sioner Joe McClash said.
Commissioner Stan Stephens, who represents the Is-
land, was the only dissenter. He said the cost is excessive
and it will be difficult to replace the lost tax revenue.
Adding the piece to the Memorial will not be very benefi-
cial because the park itself is not heavily used, he said.
"We talk about saving this natural piece of land,"
he said. "I have used that land for 25 years. I've
camped on it. I've dug holes in the ground for bonfires,
Those middens have been dug up. It's certainly not in
its natural state and would not be saved from the dam-
age that's already occurred."
Commissioner Gwen Brown was absent.
Glass said the park will not be filled with boat
ramps and picnic tables, as some have implied, but will
be considered an extension of the memorial and be
managed by park officials.
Barbara Goodman, supervisor of the memorial,
said she will work with county staff to develop a man-
agement plan for the park.
Mannausa accepted the terms of the agreement and
thanked the public and the commission for their efforts.

On winged feet
On winged feet ... and roller blades, bicycles and
skate boards, Islanders use their city streets for fun and
fresh air. By definition, we are a community of
"outdoorsy-type" people and free spirits otherwise
we would all live "in town" where it is more conve-
nient and regimented. Therefore, it is of considerable
concern to most of us when our freedom is encroached.
It is of even greater concern when the freedom of our
children is threatened.
Let me preface my remarks by stating that my
husband and I know a little something about freedom.
My husband, an Army officer and helicopter pilot,
spent three years as a POW in Vietnam. My father, a
graduate of the U.S. Naval Academy and an F-105D
pilot, was imprisoned in Laos and never came home.
So freedom, in all its forms, is important to us and we
paid for it personally.
Sadly, our son and many of his young friends, are
afraid to play on the streets in their neighborhood. Not
because of gangs or drugs, but because of unfriendly
police officers and overzealous enforcement of codes
and ordinances. Many parents of roller bladers, bicy-
clists and skate boarders are complaining because their
children have been ticketed and fingerprinted! -
for playing!
Elders in the neighborhood remember playing
stick ball on the streets of Brooklyn, kick ball on the
streets outside of suburban Cleveland, riding your
"girl" on the handlebars of a bike down Main Street.
The games have changed, but the children's need to
play will endure all ordinances.
Alas, the other enduring legacy of this matter will
be a distrust and dislike of police officers by our youth.
Both my husband and I have witnessed deputies treat-
ing our son and others with hostility. To the children's
credit, they react with as much respect as they can mus-
ter.
When our son was harassed for skate boarding
outside of our home on the sidewalk (as specifically
instructed by another officer who warned him not to
skate in the street), under our general supervision and
with our knowledge, our son asked the officer come to
his house and include mom and dad in the discussion.
The officer refused our son's request to "go get my
mom and dad"!
Since when did the Anna Maria sheriffs depart-
ment decide that "parent involvement" is a bad thing
and decide to discourage parent participation? I, for
one, insist on being involved.
By the time my husband and I came out of our

home, the two children who had been skating with our
son had run away in fear! When we arrived on the
scene, almost eight minutes after our son had been
threatened with a ticket and arrest for skating on the
sidewalk, the officer had called for "assistance."
He remarked that he "usually works in town and
has to deal with all types."
To Deputy Ken Mears' credit, he later stopped by
after the "new" officer left to reassure my son he was
acting within the law. Nonetheless, our son is not a type
and we do not want him treated as such by anyone,
especially the police. Our son is a person who is bright;
caring and fair minded. His friends and our neighbors
are not types either.

Situation unfortunate
Remember, our son was not stealing or fighting or
doing drugs. He was playing outside of his home. The
situation that currently exists is not only unfair, it is
very unfortunate. So, let's do something about it!
First, all officers should be briefed as to the gentle
character of our beloved Island and the attitude with
which certain ordinances should be enforced. "Island
training" if you will. Sometimes discretion is the bet-
ter part of valor.
Second, let's get some information about the "law"
being enforced. Is it a "law" or an "ordinance?" Is it
state, county or municipal? When my son asked that
question politely, he was considered disrespectful by
the deputy.
So I would like to respectfully repeat the question.
As I understand it, there is a state law against roller
skating and skate boarding on the streets. However, I
also understand that there is another law that says, in
the absence of sidewalks, pedestrians may take to the
streets! This law would seem to supersede the law cur-
rently being enforced on streets in any location where
there is no sidewalk.
On the other hand, I understand that bicycles are
considered vehicles and subject to rules of the road, the
same as automobiles.
Let me get this straight: My kids are supposed to
ride their bikes on busy streets filled with older driv-
ers and roller skate/ skate board on the sidewalk unless
there are no sidewalks. I think I need more information.
Third, let's get together and talk about some solu-


tions to this problem. Since this matter affects many
people, both young and old, I would like to ask the
Anna Maria Island Community Center to host a forum
on the topic and invite Anna Maria city commission-
ers, the Anna Maria police department, parents, bicy-
clists, roller skaters, bladers and skate boarders.
Let's get the "rules" clarified, printed up and dis-
tributed to our youth and to the tourists who flock here
to skate and bike. Let's hold a seminar (or a pizza
party) and explain to the children why the "rules" are
a matter of safety, civic duty or whatever. As the song
says, "Teach your children well..."
Fourth, let's brainstorm some workable, fair and
pro-active solutions to the problem that won't alienate
anyone.
For example, in a small town in Maryland, certain
heavily traveled streets are designated as "No Skating/
Bicycling" zones with use restricted for safety reasons.
Maybe we could build more Island sidewalks faster or
establish an Island skating/bike trail sooner.
The City of Bradenton Police Athletic League (PAL)
is setting the example. They are hard at work creating a
state-of-the art recreational facility to accommodate roller
bladders, skate boarders and competitive bicyclists in
Bradenton. This is an all-volunteer effort and they could
use your donations of time and money. When it is com-
pleted, it will provide our youth a positive and safe place
to play and practice "extreme" sports.

... and what about a pool?
Let's start thinking now about how to arrange
transportation to the PAL facility for our Island youth
this summer. We might also try to figure out how to get
them to the county swimming pool too, for some more
"adolescent-friendly" activities.
I know, I know ... they have the whole Gulf of
Mexico. Still, you aren't really too old to remember that
it is as much about congregating as swimming, are you?
Fifth, a second-hand hearsay source told me that
the reason for imported "town-based" deputies crack-
ing down so hard on skaters and bikers is because they
are "bored" and don't have anything else to do.
I can't believe this to be true! Our community and
its children could not possibly be penalized because we

PLEASE SEE YOUR OPINION, NEXT PAGE








I 99 Y U 9 l 9


CONTINUED FROM PAGE 6


are "too good" and our streets are "too
safe"? These actions can't suggest that
the officers are on our streets "looking
for trouble." Surely, the old "watch
them and they will do wrong" philoso-
phy as in "build jails and we will fill
them" can't be operating here.
Worse yet, I cannot believe profes-
sional police officers would "stir it up"
to make their shift more interesting or
exciting! Neighborhood patrol shouldn't
be conducted on a quota system.
Of course, I can't completely ignore
it when someone whispers to me, "No
real crime: no medals, no adrenaline no
glory." Just pesky kids of all ages on
skates and bikes.
If this boredom allegation is even
remotely true, it is unsettling. If deputies
need more to do maybe we could save
money by cutting back shifts. Better yet,
let's give them something positive to do.
How about playing basketball with
the kids at the Center? Crime prevention
is just as important as ordinance en-
forcement. How about checking up on
shut-ins who sign up for daily police
contact? Some communities have police
on foot and on horses. Maybe Anna
Maria needs foot patrols or (don't laugh)
BIKE PATROLS? Maybe the officers
could use their spare time helping Mr.
Charock with code enforcement! (Just
kidding, Phil!)
All of us need to start com-
plimenting our children on what they do
righr. We should stop focusing on every
little thing they do wrong. They need
our praise and support. They don't need
to be treated like common criminals.
.Children will rise to our expectations.

Banning all cars
Finally, in a contest between cars
and non-mptorized means of transporta-
tion and recreation, I would venture to
guess that most Islanders would vote for
recreation. Maybe we should just ban
cars and convert streets to "Pedestrian
Activity Only."
We could tear down the bridge and
recycle it as a man-made reef. We could
operate a ferry boat from Leverocks
where disembarking persons (including
sheriff's deputies) would be given their
choice of roller blades, skate board, bi-
cycle or golf cart.
After all, Anna Maria City is proud
of its designation as a "Bird Sanctuary."
Perhaps we should pass an ordinance
declaring Anna Maria a "Pedestrian
Sanctuary." That way, bikers and skat-
ers and walkers could go anywhere and
everywhere even where there are no
crosswalks just like the birds!
Don't laugh again! I used to live
in the tiny town of Takoma Park, Md.,
in the thick of the Washington D.C.
suburbs. In 1978 citizens of Takoma
Park declared a 12-block neighbor-
hood a "nuclear-free" zone, the only
incorporated city in America with that
distinction. In small town America,
where freedom rings, anything can
happen!
Let's never forget that the charm of
our Island is that of one of the last ves-
tiges of small town America. A place
where grandparents can watch their chil-
dren play safely in the streets.
Now if we could just find a home for
that pirate ship.... Perhaps we could turn it
into a skateboard ramp and the pirates
could help keep the noise down. In small
town America, anything is possible.

Vendettas not best for
Anna Maria City
I feel that it is time to set the facts
straight concerning the building official
of Anna Maria City.
Philip Charnock is a highly quali-
fied building official and should be
commended for his actions and the pro-
fessional manner in which he runs his
department, where he wears many hats.
His hats include building official, pub-
lic works director, code enforcement of-
ficer and other duties which the mayor
may direct him to perform.
Credit needs to go to him for the re-
duction in flood insurance premiums.
The City now has a 10 per cent credit
due to Charnock's efforts to comply
with the Federal Emergency Manage-
ment Agency, state statutes and city or-
dinances.
Charnock came on board just after
or during the final rewrite of our city
codes and the task of enforcing many
revised ordinances has fallen on his
shoulders. In my contact with his de-
partment, I can only commend him for
the proper enforcement of all regula-
tions which he deals with on a daily
basis.
It is regrettable that a few individuals
have a personal vendetta against
Chamock because of his strict interpreta-
tion of all regulations and that they could
not or did not get what they wanted which
would have jeopardized our excellent
standing with FEMA and the Department
of Environmental Protection.
Tom Turner, Anna Maria City

Building official gets
reader's OK
This.is in response to the letter in
your May 7 issue by Donald Callahan of
Avon, N.J.
As a permanent resident of the Is-
land, having been away for a month, I
was shocked to read that Anna Maria
City's Building Official Phil
Charnock's qualifications were being
attacked by the disclosure of a bank-
ruptcy in his past.
There can be no explanation as to the
reason for this unfortunate occurrence. It
could have been the result of having to
support an ailing parent or child. The rea-
son is really none of our business.
The point is to question his ability to
perform because of this unfortunate action
is without merit. The law allows for this
extraordinary relief for whatever reason
and there should be no stigma attached.
I sincerely hope Callahan is not faced
with a financially draining circumstance in
the future which requires him to seek the
succor of the bankruptcy law.
As to Charnock's performance as
building official, I would like to call
your attention to the following:
1. We live on a barrier island.
2. Charnock does not create the
laws or ordinances that pertain to a bar-
rier island.
3. It is his job to enforce them.
4. As a result of his doing his job,
we have realized a 10 per cent reduction
in our flood insurance costs.
I would be more than happy to
thank him for doing his job, for which
he is well qualified, in the event a hur-
ricane should strike the Island.
As for Callahan, I would suggest he
look to the requirements of the city of
Avon, N.J. I'm certain that FEMA regu-
lations apply to the New Jersey shore. I
only hope that their enforcement officer is
as talented and knowledgeable as ours.

The Cortez Road landscaping program is on
again. Well, probably. Most likely.
The Manatee County Commission saw the plan,
liked it and sent it back to the drawing board. Too ex-
pensive, commissioners said.
The stretch in question is between 75th and
119th Streets, which was transformed from a two-
lane bottleneck to a fast, smooth four-laner in a
major project last year.
But the landscaping couldn't be done through the
road contractor, said Janet McAfee, Manatee County
director of project management. She has been over-
seeing development of a landscape program.


All Island Youth gears up

ganizations, games, worship activities, discussion
topics, fundraising and outings such as beach parties,
canoe trips, camping and a trip to a theme park.
AIY meets every Wednesday from 6 to 8 p.m.
and supper is included. The group will meet at Roser
Church during June and at Gloria Dei in July.
Contact Pastor Dan Kilts at 778-1813 or Stacey
Bellows at 778-0414 for information about the pro-
gram. Volunteer adults are welcome.

The Bayshore High School graduation ceremony
will be held at 9 a.m. with Sally Shuford, assistant super-
intendent for Pupil Personnel Services; Jim Keranen,
assistant superintendent of Business Services; and Joe
Miller, school board chairman, presiding.
Manatee High School graduation ceremony will
be held at 8 p.m. with Beverly O'Brien, assistant su-
perintendent for Human Resources and Support Ser-
vices; Harry Kinnan, school board vice chairman; and
Frank Brunner, school board member, presiding.
In addition, Manatee Technical Institute's Adult
High School will hold graduation ceremonies at 8
p.m. on June 10, at Neel Auditorium, Manatee Com-
munity College, 5840 26th St. W., Bradenton.


Last week she took it to the commission. It called
for shrubs, Indian hawthorn and junipers in the narrow
dividers from 86th Street west and for trees in the wider
medians between 75th and 86th.
Everything was OK with the commissioners ex-
cept the price, estimated at $171,896, and the single
offer for maintenance, $58,000 a year. The county
can do better, commissioners concluded, with less
elaborate landscaping and more bids on mainte-
nance.
"It's a go project but we need to tone it down a
bit," said McAfee.
She and her staff are doing just that, hoping to get
a new plan out and bids back in time to take the new
package to the commission in August.

What to do if you find a
baby bird
This is the time of year when the attention of work-
ers at the Pelican Man's Bird Sanctuary is directed to-
ward the care and feeding of baby birds.
The sanctuary offers the following advice to any-
one encountering a baby bird needing help:
If you find a baby bird that has fallen out of its
nest, put it back in the nest.
If you cannot find the nest, make a substitute out of
a flower pot or hanging plant container. Place your nest
in a safe area close to where you found the baby bird.
If the baby bird appears injured or orphaned, con-
tact the nearest licensed wildlife rehabilitation center.
If you live in the Sarasota area, call the sanctuary at
388-4444.
Remember that birds learn to fly on the ground. If
you see a well-feathered little fledgling on the ground,
leave it alone. Its parents will return to feed and care
for it by the end of the day.
For information about the Pelican Man's Bird
Sanctuary, call 388-4444.

Helping birds this Islander's goal


By Jim Hanson
Islander Correspondent
The Communists ran her out of her own country as
a "troublemaker," but birds on Anna Maria Island
would disagree.
Elizabeth Phillips, who lives with her husband Paul
on Key Royale, is tremendously overqualified for doc-
toring pelicans. That doesn't matter, to her or to the
birds, as long as she's permitted to care for them.
And there may be the rub.
Neighbors say they don't want a "bird zoo" at the
north end of Key Royale. She doesn't either, Phillips
says. They accuse her of feeding birds to attract them.
They're right, in a way: "Injured birds don't come
to me because I'm tall and blonde but because I have
a fish in my hand so I can catch them. Other birds see
that and come along."
She tends their injuries, then sets them free if they
can hack it alone or turns them over to the Pelican
Man's Bird Sanctuary for further treatment if needed.
She wants to find a place on the Island to set up a
clinic. If her past is prologue to her future, she'll get it.
She came here from California, came there from
Montreal, came there from Poland at the insistence of
the then-Communist government.
She was born of a German father and Polish
mother and seems to have inherited the battle-readiness
of both races. Her father was an engineer for a German
firm, her mother a physician who wanted her daughter
to be a doctor too.
When Elizabeth was in medical school she was "a
huge anti-Communist," led a strong movement against
establishing Russian as Poland's second language, and
was involved in several strikes aimed at the Commu-
nists.
She had practiced medicine for 11 months after
finishing medical school when she was told to operate
on a man who was either a "KGB officer or a police-
man."

Foot Facts s
by Dr. Clare H. Starrett
Podiatrist

LOSING A TOENAIL
Toenails are prime targets for getting stepped on, stubbed, and
hammered by falling objects. Most of the time, they take the abuse
with little more than a small chip or crack, protecting the tender toes
underneath. When an injury is severe enough, though, the toenail
may eventually fall off. There are two potential problems when this
happens. If the cells responsible for producing the toenail were also
damaged in the injury, the result may be that they can no longer grow
a normal nail. The new growth will then be deformed, possibly caus-
ing discomfort, Also, the dark, warm environment inside the shoe is
inviting grounds for a fungal infection to take root. Regular treatment
.vith an anti-fungal cream can keep the fungus from taking over for
the 12 to 18 months it typically takes for a new nail to grow in.
After a toenail injury, be sure to follow through with a professional
diagnosis and treatment plan from your podiatrist. At Island
Podiatry. We have two convenient locations in Anna Maria
779-1100 and Bradenton 742-6673.

Paul and Elizabeth Phillips.

"I said I wouldn't help such a criminal, and a nurse
reported me."
Her doctor's license was suspended, she said, so
she worked for a few months as a registered nurse "but
I kept on talking, and finally they gave me three days
to get out of Poland."
They sent her to Montreal, where she took one look
and asked for a warmer climate. She got it, in southern
California.
She recalls that she worked as a housekeeper in
Beverly Hills, studying nursing and English at UCLA
and law at Loyola University. She dropped all that

when she married Paul Phillips, a commercial pilot.
They lived in Brentwood two blocks from O.J.
Simpson.
Two years ago they moved to Key Royale. Paul
went on flying a Federal Express DC-10 and Elizabeth
explored her new environment.
"I saw this beautiful, beautiful nature and I thought
it was time to help," she says.
The birds caught her attention, especially injured
sea birds. She volunteered at the Pelican Man's sanc-
tuary on City Island, where she admired the man him-
self, Dale Shields, but soon came into battle with oth-
ers there.
"They don't need those beautiful offices, they need
a better hospital. I offered to pay for air conditioning,
but a clerk told me they knew what they were doing,
they didn't need my advice."
Ultimately she quit volunteering and started treat-
ing birds at her home at the end of Key Royale Drive.
Neighbors objected. They've calmed down at her as-
surance that she won't start a zoo there.
"I'd like to have my bird rehab center on the Island,
since I'll be there every day," she says. "I only need
half an acre or so. I'm trying to get official support. If
that doesn't come within a year, I'll buy a place and do
it privately."
She has one more unfulfilled desire. She didn't
really want to be a doctor, she's always wanted to be
a judge. Stand by, people.

The Island Poet
How do you cope with retirement when your working days will stop,
You can't just pick out an easy chair and turn around and flop.
So hurry down to a warmer clime, where your pensions get you by,
And you will fit right in, for it won't be hard to try.
And if you come to Florida, the folks will give you a helpful hand,
'Cause all of us came here like you, from some other distant land.
Where you will find folks are the greatest, there's none who can compare,
For they will make you feel at home and show you that they care.
Bud Atteridge

ing her head out the window with a lit cigar up her nose.

The officer said he asked her to sign the citation four

Yencho hurls AMFD past Tip
Steve Yencho struck out 16 Tip of the Island batters
during a 10-1 victory Saturday morning at the Anna Maria
Island Community Center. Peter Dowling took the loss -
his defense letting him down with three errors.
Tip's Joey Mousseau managed to tag Yencho for a
double and a triple but the team was otherwise handcuffed
by Yencho. Jason Sato and Brett Milks led the way at the
plate for Anna Maria Fire District with two RBIs, but the
story on this Saturday was clearly Yencho. He allowed
only five hits and struck out the side in four of six innings
pitched while completely dominating Tip.
Dowling and Yencho were both sharp from the start,
putting goose eggs on the board for the first two innings.
Ian Fredrickson got things started, reaching first
safely on an error by the second baseman and moving
to second on a fly ball just behind third base that left
fielder Kyle Dale just missed after a long run.
Yencho then loaded the bases on a single to center that
Mousseau quickly fielded and threw home to hold the
runners. This set the stage for Sato, who responded with

a clutch single that scored Fredrickson while Mijares
alertly scored when the catcher couldn't handle
Mousseau's throw home. The score became 2-0, AMFD.
Yencho and Sato both scored when the shortstop
had trouble fielding Tom Bucci's grounder to extend
the score to 4-0. Following a strikeout by Scot Vensel,
Ben Holt hit an RBI triple just inside the first-base line
to score Bucci, and Milks plated Holt with an RBI
ground out to bring the score to 6-0 with two outs.
After Dowling hit Fredrickson with a pitch, Taylor
Manning relieved and promptly walked Mijares and
Yencho to force in another run. Manning struck out Sato
to end the inning with the score 7-0 in AMFD's favor.
Tip looked like they were ready to make a game of
when Mousseau started off the fourth inning with a
double off the fence in left. Yencho responded by strik-
ing out Pocino and Manning and inducing Richardson
to hit a high chopper over the pitcher's mound that
Ryan Keller charged and fielded on the short hop to nip
Richardson at first for the third out.
Bucci doubled to lead off the bottom of the fourth
inning and scored following consecutive walks to
Vensel, Holt and Keller which prompted a pitching
change by Tip. Richardson came on to face Milks who
laid down a nice bunt that Richardson fielded, but the
catcher failed to touch home on the force play and
Vensel scored to extend the lead to 9-0.

a passed ball, Richardson walked Fredrickson and
Yencho to allow Keller to waltz home to end the scor-
ing for AMFD at 10 runs.
Yencho started the fifth by walking the first batter
before he struck out the side. Logan Bystrom then ner-
vously made his pitching debut for the Tip. He walked
the first two batters before retiring the next three at bat
for a scoreless inning of work on the mound.
Tip scored their only run of the game when
Mousseau tripled and scored on Pocino's single to left
to end the scoring and the game at 10-1.
The Tip's loss opened the door for Kiwanis to tighten
up the season's second half race for the championship if
they beat Haley's Motel, but it wasn't meant to be.
Haley's recorded a 12-8 win, led at the plate by
Blake Tyre with two bunt singles and a run. He was
supported by Hunter Green's three RBIs and Aaron
Lowman's three runs scored. Tyler Krauss chipped in
with a two-for-five day.
Ryan Quigley got things going for Kiwanis when
he doubled leading off, and later scored on Ryan Allis'
single. After Allis stole second, Ben Miller delivered
an RBI single, scoring Allis and allowing Kiwanis to
take an early 2-0 lead.
Haley's came back to tie the score in the second
when Lowman singled and Green reached base on a
fielder's choice. Both runners moved up and scored on
two wild pitches from Allis.

THE ISLANDER BYSTANDER 0 JUNE 4, 1997 0 PAGE 19 li


The score remained tied through three innings but
not without some controversy. Peter Birch singled and
went to second on a sacrifice bunt by Christian Bax,
then to third on a strike out by Jimmy Gallery.
Next, a walk to Robby Dial put runners on first and
third and set up a play where Dial breaks for second to
draw the throw from the catcher. The catcher threw the
ball to shortstop Lowman, who quickly threw home to
nip Birch on a close play at the plate.
Haley's took the lead in the fourth when Lowman
reached base on an error, moved to third on passed balls
and scored on Green's RBI ground out. Dusty Andricks
then walked, moved to third on passed balls and scored on
Krauss' RBI fielder's choice to make the score 4-2.
Kiwanis narrowed the deficit to 4-3 as Bobby Coo-
per sandwiched walks to Andy Rauch, Birch, Dial and
Quigley around strikeouts by Bax and Gallery. Haley's
then brought in Chad Alger to pitch with the bases loaded.
He responded by striking out Bobby Gibbons.
A scoreless fifth was followed by a wild and woolly
sixth inning for both teams. Haley's scored eight runs on
seven hits, two walks and might have scored more as
Cooper ended the inning with a long fly ball to deep cen-
ter field with a 12-3lead. Undaunted, Kiwanis came back
to score five runs on three hits, a walk and two errors be-
fore Gallery grounded out to end the scoring at 12-8.
Monday night's game, June 2, between Tip and
Kiwanis finished regular season play with Tip clinch-
ing the championship in two overtime innings. I'll have
a full report on the game next week in a final regular-
season Anna Maria Island Little Leag

Heritage Trail may lead to Cortez; red tide help needed


By Bob Ardren
Outdoor Perspectives
From Bridge Street to the Anna Maria City Pier,
pieces are falling into place on the proposed Heritage
Trail linking historical, environmental and cultural
points of interest in Manatee and Sarasota counties.
And it looks as though Anna Maria and Cortez will
be playing major roles in the project.
Jaime Doubek of the Sarasota Bay Program says
there will be an unveiling next January of "A Blueways
Guide" developed by Dr. Gus Antonini of the Florida
Sea Grant. She calls it "a nature-based tourism guide"
for Sarasota Bay.
In addition, there's also a Welcome Guide
scheduled for release next spring. Together, the pub-
lications should be a big boost for eco-tourism in the
area, and that's the fastest growing area of tourism
these days.
Visitors are more and more looking for "the real
Florida," and that's what this program is designed to
show them. And that kind of tourism just might be
helpful to local preservation efforts, too.
For example, Cortez is trying to raise money to buy
the old Cortez School and turn it into a community
center and museum. The Heritage Trail program can
help generate public interest in sites such as the school,
built in 1912, and perhaps help raise the needed money.
Likewise, the 103-acre Crampton subdivision east
of the school would make a fine area for boardwalks,
an observation tower and panels relating the history of
the Calusa Indians. But that will have to wait until the
school project is funded.
The Heritage Trail signals a new direction in local
tourism, one that puts real value on our history and
local culture. Looks to me as though Florida tourism
and the people who visit us are growing up and begin-
ning to really appreciate something beyond the plastic

That's a good sign.

START help
Solutions To Avoid Red Tide (START) is asking
local boat owners for help in red tide research later this
summer. Now is a good time to consider the commit-
ment and begin getting ready if you decide to help out.
Boat owners who volunteer will be offered a
choice of two planned projects.
During the week of August 18, boaters will collect
water samples from specific sites up to 50 miles off-
shore in the Gulf. The necessary bottles and transit lines
will be furnished by the Florida Department of Envi-
ronmental Protection and will be delivered to your
home or boat.
When you return from offshore, the bottles will be
picked up and tested for evidence of red tide.
The second project involves spending several days
offshore during the week of September 18 to monitor
the scope and movement of algae blooms. Automatic
monitoring equipment will be installed on volunteer
boats by DEP and then removed upon your return.
If you're interested in volunteering, call START
Executive Director Rob Haglund at 378-4180.

Hurricane season officially began last weekend.
Living on the Island, you probably know most of the
drill by heart now. If not, brush up on the facts of sur-
viving the big one if it comes.
You life could depend on it.
Each time a hurricane sweeps by we all feel a little
more experienced, but that's a bogus emotion. Some
simple planning, a little gear and the decision not to be
stupid but to get off the Island early are everyone's best

Silver king season is here; snook season gone


By Capt. Mike Heistand
Tarpon season is here, with reports flooding in of
big fish rolling through the entire area. Snook season
is closed, but backwater anglers are still catching lots
of big redfish. Offshore, grouper and snapper still pre-
vail.
Dave at the Rod and Reel Pier said pier fishers
there have been catching snook, redfish and mackerel.
Ned at the Anna Maria City Pier said anglers
there are catching a few good-sized lemon sharks and
some mackerel.
Katie at Miss Cortez Fishing Fleet said the four-
hour trips averaged 30 head of Key West grunts. The
six-hour trips averaged 250 head of Key West grunts.
The nine-hour trips averaged 35 head of red and black
grouper and mangrove snapper.
Capt. Zack on the Dee Jay II said snook fishing is
fair, with a few linesiders coming in at 23 to 30 inches
long. Redfishing continues to be strong, though, and
Capt. Zack hooked up several tarpon in the Gulf. He
also ran into some jumbo-sized Spanish mackerel one
day right off the beach.
Capt. Dave Pinkham said offshore action is very
good right now, with lots of large kingfish, some grou-
per up to 15 pounds and snapper to seven pounds. Capt.
Dave also ran into some big Spanish mackerel.

Capt. Jason Hensell charters are catching gag grouper,
red grouper and yellowtail snapper using thread herring
as bait.
Capt. Rick Gross said he was catching snook right
up to the end of the season, with limit catches of both
the linesiders and redfish.
On my boat Magic we've been getting lots of reds
on the outgoing tides, some up to 36 inches long. Trout
and snook rounded out the week.
Capt. Tom Chaya reports good catches of king-
fish and mackerel in the Gulf and snook and reds in the
backwater.
Bill at Island Discount Tackle said tarpon season is
in full swing, with the best bets to catching silver king
coming in the mornings. Offshore, look for grouper and
snapper, while backwater anglers can look forward to
catching redfish. Bill reminds us all to mark June 14 on
the calendar for the Fishing the Islands tourney.
Capt. Roy Salgado on the Grand Slam said he's been
catching lots of grouper in the 100- to 150-foot depths.
John Colander caught a 58-pounds black grouper on one
charter. He's also been putting some charters onto sharks,
with one bull shark coming in at 250 pounds. He's also
finding snapper and dolphin offshore.
Good luck and good fishing.

Baseball summer camp
coming to Center
The lineup might have changed, but the game
will be the same at the Anna Maria Island Com-
munity Center's summer baseball camp.
Major leaguers Birdie Tebbetts and Chris
Schmitt will sparkplug the 1997 camp.
The program is divided into two camps, accord-
ing to age of the participant. Cost for a one-week
camp is $50, and includes a special camp T-shirt.
First camp is June 16-20 for Little League
ages 8, 9 and 10. The second will be June 23-27
for campers 11 and 12 years of age. The camps
will be at the Center's stadium from 9 a.m. to
noon. Registration deadline is June 6.
Tebbetts was a major leaguer from 1936 until
1952, a catcher for Detroit, Boston and Cleveland
teams. He played in the 1940 World Series with
Detroit and was a four-time all-star selection.
Schmitt is a Sarasota native who was on the
Manatee Community College World Series team in
1991 before getting drafted, playing for the Milwau-
kee Brewers and the Atlanta Braves as pitcher.
