Chicken wars


'pecking' up in


Holmes Beach
By Pat Copeland
Islander Reporter
In one of the summer's most hotly debated contests,
the chickens seem to be winning in Holmes Beach.
The debate disintegrated to name calling when the
mayor accused the commission chairman of being a Nazi.
The latest volley was fired by Holmes Beach Mayor
Bob VanWagoner, who referred to Commission Chair-
man Don Maloney as "the Herr Goebbels of Holmes
Beach" for publicly pursuing complaints about chickens.
Goebbels was a German Nazi politician and min-
ister of propaganda from 1933-45.
The issue scratched its way to the surface recently
when Maloney said he received an anonymous com-
plaint that a resident was keeping chickens in her yard.
He forwarded the complaint to Bill Kepping, the city's
code enforcement officer.
The complaints arise from a city ordinance that
prohibits residents from raising fowl and farm-type
animals. House pets are excluded from the ordinance.
The mayor ordered Kepping not to accept com-
plaints from commissioners, Maloney said. The anony-
mous complainant then stepped forward and signed a
formal complaint.
Kepping and the mayor paid a visit to the residence
with the chickens a site investigation whereby
the mayor concluded the chickens were pets. He de-
clared the chickens were not a nuisance and could re-
main at the home.
Kepping was told by VanWagner not to pursue the
issue unless he received another complaint.
Then matters took a fowl turn.
The mayor fired off a memo decrying the practice
of making complaints public before they have been in-
vestigated by code enforcement. He said many alleged
violations involve interpretations of the code and can
be cleared up without further action.
By spotlighting violations the city would "end up
in a witch hunt for the narrow minded," the mayor said.
"Sometimes complaints made against individuals are
made more for vindictiveness than a sincere concern
for correction."
Maloney torpedoed a reply and asked that his
memo serve as a second complaint.
"Your July 1 letter to the VanWinkles (complainants)
appears to me to be an attempt to assure the Buehlers
(chicken owners) that the chickens can stay since they
have 'not much time of life.' I suggest that legally they
have NO additional time of life unless Mrs. Buehler
chooses to remove them to an area where chickens, and
other farm animals forbidden by ordinance, are welcome."
Not to be left with egg on his face, the mayor
quickly informed Maloney that complaints against the
Buehlers were being processed.
"I would suggest you pay more attention to the
chairmanship of the city commission, the city's legis-
lative body, which is wandering in the wasteland and
going nowhere, instead of trying to become the Herr
Goebbels of Holmes Beach," VanWagoner said.

Commission hangs up on cell


tower proposal, opts for hold


By Pat Copeland
Islanh'r Reporter
The Holmes Beach Commission last week turned
down a special exception request from GTE to build a cel-
lular phone tower at Smith Realtors, 5910 Marina Drive.
Commissioner Luke Courtney cited a statement by
the public works department from the original application
that said the proposed special exception use appears to be
in keeping with the standards of review. There are 12 gen-
eral standards of review and all must be met.
"It is my feeling that the application does not meet
number eight 'The proposed use shall be consistent
with the community character of the immediate neighbor-
hood of the proposed development.' In my opinion a 155-
foot tower in that location is not consistent with the com-
munity character," Courtney said. "I will vote against it."
"We have a tower right here and that's directly
across the street, so I don't see that it's inconsistent,"
Commissioner Carol Whitmore noted.
Commissioner Ron Robinson made the motion to ap-
prove the special exception. He and Whitmore voted for
the motion and Courtney and Commission Chair Don
Maloney voted against it. Commissioner Pat Geyer was
on vacation."The motion fails without majority," City
Attorney Patricia Petruff explained.
Commissioners then instructed Petruff to develop
an ordinance imposing a six-month moratorium on the
construction of cellular phone towers in the city. They
will use the time to review their comprehensive plan
and land development code and develop criteria to ad-
dress cellular phone towers.
GTE officials have been seeking a site for the


tower since last year when they applied for a special
exception to construct a tower at the Holmes Beach
Marina. After protests from neighboring residents,
commissioners turned down the application because it
did not meet the general standards of review.
The next try was for a tower at city hall.
Commissioners favored the location which would also
generate revenue for the city because GTE was wiling
to pay the city to lease the site. However, a stipulation
in the city's deed for the land says it must be used for
municipal purposes or it reverts to the grantors heirs.
That put a halt to the city hall proposal.
The third try was at Smith Realtors. After a March
public hearing on the special exception application, the
commission instructed Petruff to draw up a resolution of
approval. Neighboring residents again protested the site
and commissioners voted to delay the decision 60 days.
David Levin, a Sarasota attorney representing op-
ponents of the Smith site, said he was pleased with the
latest decision. Levin also represents Save Anna Maria
in its fight against the proposed 65-foot-high, fixed-
span Anna Maria Bridge replacement.
"I was reviewing the judge's recommended order
in the Anna Maria Bridge case," he explained. "One of
the things the judge was particularly impressed with
was the fact that a high bridge would be substantially
higher than all of the structures in Holmes Beach with
the exception of one [the Martiniquel which predated
your height restrictions.
"The more structures you have on the Island that
exceed the treetops, the less strong your argument will
be the next time you fight a high bridge," he warned.


Bradenton Beach-Redington Beach

TV goof tangles viewers


By Paul Roat
Early morning television viewers received a shock
last Wednesday when a Tampa television station re-
ported the mayor and two commissioners in Bradenton
Beach had resigned in the wake of a melee of a meet-
ing the previous night.
Oops. It was Redington Beach, not Bradenton
Beach, that had the problem.
Bradenton Beach City Clerk Alice Baird said the
phone started ringing at 7:30 a.m. with people wonder-
ing what had happened nothing, as it turned out,


because Bradenton Beach didn't even have a meeting
Tuesday night.
WTVT Channel 13 reporter Stacy Strasis made the
Bradenton Beach-Redington Beach mis-speak. She
later in the broadcast chatted about meeting viewers
from Bradenton, perhaps prompting the name switch.
And even though Bradenton Beach has had its
share of problems in the last couple years a group
of residents and the majority of the commission re-

Holmes Beach ball field hit with another protest


By Pat Copeland
Islander Reporter
The Holmes Beach ball field agreement was the
subject of another protest last week this time from
Ray Wiles, president of the Manatee County Babe Ruth
League.
"Since the new Babe Ruth field will not have
lights, Wiles does not want to use it for any other
county teams and he says he will lobby against con-
struction of the field," Commissioner Luke Courtney
told the commission. "He intends to contact the
county's parks and recreation department and the
county commissioners to express his objections to
spending county money on our field."
The agreement, in which Manatee County pledged
to spend $50,000 to refurbish the field behind city hall,
came under fire in May from the mayor and several
residents. They felt the agreement gave the county too


much control over the use of the field.
Commissioners made several revisions including
making the field multi-use, changing the length of the
agreement from 30 years to 10 years and guaranteeing
open time for residents to use the field. The agreement
was then sent to the county attorney's office for review.
"I think it's time for Holmes Beach city commission-
ers to start listening to the majority of the citizens and not
just a few disgruntled individuals," Courtney said.
In a July 1 letter to commissioners, Hugh Holmes
Jr. said he feels the city should build the field and not
be committed to Manatee County. He made the follow-
ing suggestions concerning the field:
Remove the fence during off-season.
Don't allow signs on the fence.
Insure the field will never be lighted.
Schedule open time.
Develop rules to prevent excessive use.


Develop a yearly schedule for the field's use.
"I know the field is an asset to the community,"
Holmes noted. "I just like to keep things simple and
under the local citizens' control. This is, or was, a
quaint little town. Sometimes we get someone moving
here who wants to keep the town 'like it was,' but also
wants to change it 'like it was back home' and create
a monument for himself. A personal agenda."
Holmes also suggested the area be designed as a
unit to include the city buildings and recreation and
open areas with trees and benches.
"The city may not have enough money now, but it
could be done in phases, and not just throw a large
building here, a permanent ball field there, a tower
somewhere, and no land left over," he concluded. "We
need to focus on what the generous men and families
had in mind when they donated this beautiful land to
the citizens of Holmes Beach and Anna Maria Island."

Boat sinks at Cortez dock; foul play suspected


Owners of Cortez Parasail were greeted with a boat
owners worst nightmare Sunday morning: their boat
was sitting on the bottom, filled with water.
An estimated $40,000 in damage resulted in the
incident at the dock off 125th Street at the Cortez Fish-
ing Center in Cortez.
The boat sinking was not an accident, but the re-
sult of a three-inch hole drilled in the side of the boat.

been running fairly smooth in the Island city in recent
months.
"Smooth" is not the case in Redington Beach poli-
tics, though, a small coastal community near St. Peters-
burg in Pinellas County.
Last January the commission meetings turned into
shouting matches between citizens and commissioners.
In June, two commissioners resigned. The mayor quit

the city.
Oh, and the mayor is undergoing a criminal inves-
tigation by the Pinellas County Sheriff s Office to de-

"The engine is shot," Mary Beatty told The Is-

anything at this time."
Cortez Parasail's boat should be back in operation
within two weeks, she added.


termine if residency requirements were met when he
was elected to office. If found guilty, he could face up
to five years in jail.
And the fate of the city itself is in jeopardy. With-
out enough commissioners to make a quorum, the city
could be facing problems ratifying a budget for the next
fiscal year. The lack of commission membership also
has caused building variances to be halted.
Gov. Lawton Chiles is expected to step in and
name two commissioners to the Redington Beach
Commission. The mayoral post must be filled by elec-
tion, though, and the city's charter requires at least two
candidates for the needed special election.
Given the turmoil in the city, finding two candi-
dates suckers? to run seems problematic at best.

Damage to the Cortez Parasail vessel was estimated

the boat repaired and be back in business within two
weeks.

A Holmes Beach man suffered a broken neck af-
ter diving off a public dock in Bradenton Beach on the
Fourth of July.
David Allen Monteith, 36, was visiting friends at
Seventh Street South when he decided to go for a swim.
He dove off the bayside dock in about two feet of wa-
ter. Police and emergency medical personnel re-
sponded to the call.
Officers jumped into the water to hold Monteith's
face above the surface until paramedics arrived.

"The three-ring circus is starting any minute now"
on Anna Maria Island's beaches.
That's how Suzi Fox, the Island's turtle conserva-
tion permit holder, characterizes what is on the verge
of happening.
Two sea turtle nests on the Island are due to start
hatching any day, in fact any moment, she said. The
nests are in Bradenton Beach.
Don't touch anything around them, she warns.
Cages protect the nests and the first inclination is to lift
the cage to set the hatchlings free. "But don't do that,
just leave them and call us (778-5638) and we'll do the
rest. Anyone is welcome to watch, but it's against the
law to touch the little guys without a permit."
Someone already has broken the law at the north
end of the Island, dug into a nest but missed the eggs,
said Fox.
"We had one last year, too, but it turned out to be
kids fooling around, daring each other." It could be se-
rious, since there's a $100-per-egg penalty just for
touching, plus up to $25,000 fine.
Other than that incident, this year's Fourth of July
holiday was unusually easy on turtle nests with no


St. Petersburg kept the helicopter on the ground. He
was stabilized and transported to Columbia Blake
Medical Center, where it was determined he suffered
a C-4 fracture in his neck. Monteith was paralyzed as
a result of his injuries.
The dock from which Monteithjumped was rebuilt
by residents several months ago. Bradenton Beach City
Commission agreed to allow the residents to rebuild the
dock, which is partly on city land, if they would pay for
the repairs. Commissioners agreed to accept liability
for people using the dock under the city's insurance
plan and that the dock would be open to the public.

problems despite more people on the beaches.
An oddity, said Fox, is this year's heavy action on
the bay side. There are seven nests there, a compara-
tively big number. Traditionally, the greater that num-
ber, the stormier the season will be.
Altogether, there are now 115 sea turtle nests on
the Island, with 100 to 150 eggs per nest. "We're right
on the nose with last year," said Fix, "and expect 75 to
80 more nests to keep up the annual average."

Manatee High School student Paul Esformes,
16, joined an elite group last week when he scored
a perfect 1600 on his Scholastic Assessment Test.
"It was a shock," his mother exclaimed.
"We're really proud."
Paul, the son of Robin and Abby Esformes of
Anna Maria, is the second local student to score a
perfect score in the 1996-97 testing year. The other
was Evan Beach, 16, a student at Southeast High
School. There were 545 perfect scores reported out
of nearly two million tests taken nationwide.
"After he took the test, he said, 'I answered all
the questions. I think I did well, but I could have
blown it,'" his mother said.
Paul, who is in Nashville, Tenn., at the Inter-
national Key Club Convention, began taking the
SAT in the seventh grade for Duke University's
national talent search. As one of the high scorers in
the search, Paul has spent a portion of each summer
studying at Duke.
A variety of subjects are offered in the intense,
three-week courses. Paul has taken philosophy,
astronomy and architecture, Robin said. In August
he plans to take international relations.
"If the student's high school has a comparable
course, he can get credit for it," Robin explained.
"Paul has taken them for enrichment."
Paul plays cello in the high school's top or-
chestra, is on the yearbook staff and is a member


of the National Honor Society.
He is also a member of Key Club, a service
club sponsored by the Rotary Club; the Academic
Team, a group that participates in academic com-
petitions; and Mu Alpha Theta, a math club which
competes with other high schools in the state.
Paul has visited several universities but is not
sure what he wants to study, Robin said. His cur-
rent interests are architecture, economics and inter-
national relations.
"Paul is very modest," one close friend said.
"If this hadn't been in the newspaper, no one
would ever know, because he would never brag
about it."

Commission


approves


drainage work

Holmes Beach Commissioners approved a
$92,884.45 bid from S&R Construction to repair
damaged and leaking storm drains.
Areas include Sixth Avenue south of 34th Street,
Sixth Avenue across 34th Street, Gulf Drive at
Manatee County Public Beach, Gulf and Marina
Drives at First Union Bank, and the 6800 block of
Palm Drive. The work will also include repaving.
"These are problem areas," Building Official Joe
Duennes said. In the situation at the intersection.of
Gulf and Marina Drives, "The joints in the pipe un-
der the street are leaking and anyone driving across
there recognizes the rough spots where we've
patched it. In the past these leaks led to total pave-
ment degradation."
He said a good example of this occurred last No-
vember when a car hit a storm grate and was throw
into the yacht basin.
Mayor Bob VanWagoner also asked commis-
sioners' approval to spend $800 to clean the swale
on the south side of 42nd Street to facilitate the flow
of stormwater runoff to the east.

County buys Riverview Pointe


By Pat Copeland
Islander Reporter
Nine acres of pristine land adjacent to DeSoto
National Memorial became the county's latest acqui-
sition of environmentally sensitive land last week.
Manatee County Commission Chairman Pat Glass
signed the deed to transfer the property from Sarasota
developer Tom Mannausa to the county.
The property contains threatened species, Indian
middens, a natural spring and six habitats. Following the
sale of the property by the Venice Diocese of the Catho-
lic Church to Mannausa, it was slated to become an up-
scale development called Riverview Pointe, when resi-


dents appealed to the commission to purchase the prop-
erty for a park.
Mannausa agreed, and after several weeks of nego-
tiations, the price was set at $1.6 million. Members of
the public, calling themselves Friends of Riverview
Pointe, raised $100,000 in cash and pledges to help
with the purchase.
In addition, County Administrator Emie Padgett and
his staff have been seeking a grant which would supply 75
to 88 percent of the purchase price. The remainder would
be shared by the county and the Southwest Florida Wa-
ter Management District. However, until the grant is
awarded, the county must fund the purchase.

Center's membership drive is in first gear
The Anna Maria Island Community Center's fiscal year runs from July 1 through June 30. With the "new year" in
mind, Center Administrator Diana Robinson is heading up a campaign to encourage all ages to renew or initiate
their annual membership, either individually, as a couple, or as family. Previous and potential members should be
receiving a letter in the mail. "If you don't get yours," says Robinson, "call me at the Center, 778-1908." These
happy participants in a June baseball camp received a discount on the clinic because they are "members." All
Center programs and services offer a special members' price. Islander Photo: Courtesy of Cynthia Finn

Out with the natives
"What one commissioner hath put together let not
a future mayor put asunder except in Anna Maria."
That modification of a Biblical verse sums up the
goings-on in Anna Maria as far as destruction of a memo-
rial garden consisting of native vegetation is concerned.
It's a tossup whether citizens are more irate over the
loss of native vegetation or the symbolic memorial garden.
Initiated by the late Commissioner Mary Ross with
the "blessing" of fellow commissioners, native plants
were installed on the grounds of Anna Maria City Hall.
Mike Miller volunteered time on weekends for the past
seven years, with Mary and since, to continue her
dream. Memorial contributions to the garden were re-
quested in Ross's obituary and thus, it has been viewed
by many as an informal memorial to Ross.
But it's a memorial no more. It's a garden no more.
Mayor Chuck Shumard instructed city public
works employees to take out the native-plant garden.
In its place will be his preference, a manicured lawn.
In his defense, Shumard says he's received com-
plaints about the plants being overgrown.
To Shumard's credit, he did give Miller a chance
to remove any plants he wished, notifying him of the
demolition plans via registered letter.
Were the plants overgrown? Somewhat.
Is bulldozing the solution to overgrown plants? We
don't think so.
Native plants, with their low-maintenance, drought-
tolerant, bug-resistance features are becoming the hall-
mark of locals. Fostered in part by the Sarasota Bay Na-
tional Estuary Program, a Florida Yard & Neighborhood
Program has been ongoing for six years. Hundreds of
homeowners have removed their water-intense, pesticide/
fertilizer craving Bermuda grass in favor of natives.
In fact, the Sarasota Bay Program has touted Anna
Maria City Hall as an example of what an established
Florida Yard could look like.
We wonder what Mary Ross would think of her
"legacy" now both the garden and the mayor.

Cluck, cluck
We don't often find out-and-out name calling
among our Island public officials.
This week, sadly, Holmes Beach Mayor Bob
VanWagner has sunk the lowest.
The page one "chicken story" would be laughable
had it not been for VanWagoner accusing Commission
Chairman Don Maloney of Nazism.
VanWagoner told a friend last year he could do
whatever he wants, however absurd, because he's a
lame duck. We're glad for that but nonetheless, he
owes Maloney and his constituents an apology.

Mass transit a must for Island
I believe that when given options most Americans
will many times opt for transportation other than their
private cars: trolleys in San Francisco and New Orleans
and at the St. Petersburg's pier, trains and subways
when traveling in Europe and Canada, buses and jit-
neys in many assorted vacation locales, including is-
lands the world over.
It is true that mass transit doesn't appeal to the
majority of going-to-work commuters, but just think of
all the cars traveling Gulf Drive filled with visiting
relatives, sight-seers, Sunday-out-for-a drivers, going-
to-lunchers, cruisers and the multitude of going-to-the-
beachers and overall outdoor enthusiasts? Thousands
of cars I'll bet.
If we (county residents and government) could
start with the acquisition of some area for theme park-
style parking lots (say east of Leverocks on Manatee
and east of the Village of Cortez on Cortez Road), we
could do as the St. Pete Pier/Marina planners did -
reasonably priced metered parking in safely lit and na-
tive-plant landscaped areas, serviced by trolleys and
jitneys. Rustic waiting areas could afford some shade
and protection from rain and encourage ridership.
The current trolley has proven very popular and
with proper planning on a larger scale, I believe citizens
and visitors alike would gladly take a trolley to have
lunch at their favorite spot, and then catch another af-
ter lunch to do some shopping before traveling by trol-
ley back to their cars. Such a setup could greatly lessen
the volume of autos. Families and outdoor enthusiasts
would drive from east Manatee County, Sarasota or
where ever, with their bicycles in bike racks, park, pay
the meter, unload the bikes, like a state park outing.
Walkers, hikers, joggers, roller-skaters and roller-
bladers would do the same.
I recall that four to seven years ago a bus was of-
fered to the Island cities by MCAT for trolley-type use
but no one knew what to do with it at the time. Perhaps
even Vo-Tech students could get into the act and con-
tribute to the project by training on and then maintain-
ing the new Island-access transpiration system. There
are so many ways a community can work together.
I remember when I first moved to the Island in


1978, bicycle path enthusiasts had already been pitch-
ing long and hard to the Manatee County Commission
and planners about the need for bike paths and the other
benefits of promoting environment friendly travel op-
tions. The time has come to get working on these op-
tions.
Experts in "long-range planning" are supposed to
plan for such a traffic crises, but whether they did or
not, we must take action now if we hope to preserve
any part of the Island's laid-back atmosphere. Let's get
going with some tasteful, farsighted action before we
are just another Treasure Island or Maderia Beach,
creeping, crawling, smelly walls of cars and nowhere
to park.
Peggy Dickson, Anna Maria City

Deep water destroys faith in
Island friendliness
In the July 2 issue of The Islander there was a po-
lice report about me and I would like an opportunity to
tell my side.
The report, dated June 4, read: "Complainant re-
ported 'subjects' were cleaning carpets and generator
was making too much noise. Subjects said they were
finished for the evening."
The "subject" was me. I had just had new carpet-
ing installed the afternoon of June 4 and after going out
to dinner, came home at about 8:30 p.m. to deep wa-
ter in the bedroom, water pouring through the ceiling
into the downstairs laundry room and garage.
Due to the hour, I am sure the "complainant's"
sleep was not disturbed. If they had taken the time to
see if there was a problem or try to be nice, they would
have known I just wasn't cleaning carpets for the fun
of it.
Thankfully the police officer was very nice and
said it was considered an emergency.
The complainant doesn't realize that I have lived
with the noise of his and other units being built in my
front yard for months. I'm finding out that this is not a
very friendly Island.
My thanks to A.O.K Carpeting and the Holmes
Beach Police Department.

THOSE WERE THE FAYS
Part 6, The Saga Of Anna Maria City
by June Alder


The Anna Maria Pier in 1923. Mitch Davis built the two houses attached to the
dock. The large one at left, "Lotus Cottage," was built for a Tampa banker. The
one at right was an ice house later remodeled into "Belle Haven Cottage." They
both collapsed into the bay in the mid-'20s. (Anna Maria Island Historical
Society Photo)

MITCH DAVIS TO BE

ANNA MARIA'S FIRST MAYOR


One mayor named Davis will retire
to make way for another of the same
name, at Anna Maria shortly, as a re-
sult of the town caucus held there afew
nights ago, when W. M. Davis, better
known as "Mitch" Davis, was nomi-
nated for mayor, receiving 20 votes in
the meeting to nine cast for the present
mayor, S. N. Davis.
Other nominations were:
C. W. Bonham, vice mayor.
J. G. Whitehead, city clerk.
In each case, the office carries with
it a commissionership, the plan of gov-
ernment being the commission form,
with three commissioners.
Anna Maria Beach was incorpo-
rated as the town of Anna Maria at the
recent session of the state legislature. S.
N. Davis was made mayor pro tenm,
and he with Messrs. W. M. Davis and C.
W. Bonham formed the board of com-
missioners until the first general elec-
tion, which has now been called for
August 7
- The Evening Herald, July 30, 1923

As a kid growing up in Palmetto
in the 1890s, Mitch Davis liked nothing
better than to slip away to fish the pro-
lific waters of Anna Maria Island. He
fell in love with the wild island then,
and the romance was to endure for more
than three-quarters of a century.
By the time Mitch (the son of County
Commissioner Mac Davis) was in his
mid-teens he was making a name for him-
self as a fishing guide, and soon was cap-
tain of his own charter boat. In 1908 at the
age of 23 he was hired as caretaker of a


colony of summer cottages called West
View on the Island's south end. And he
decided to settle there with his young wife
and infant son.
Two years later along came a
straw-hatted chap named Will Bean
with a proposition for him. Mitch re-
membered Will from when he lived on
the north point on his father's home-
stead in the '90s. Will had done right
well for himself. He'd married the
daughter of the Port of Tampa's post-
master just after soldiering in the Span-
ish-American War and was a "comer"
on Tampa's political scene.
The old Bean home, now unoccu-
pied, was being reclaimed by the wilder-
ness. But Will told Mitch how he intended
to transform the 165 acres into a fashion-
able resort. It would be the finest thing on
all of Florida's West Coast, said Will.
Would Mitch like to get it on it?
Don't mind if I do, said Mitch. And
that's how he came to build most of the
houses in Bean's resort, including a
memorial chapel for the mother of Will
Bean's bankroller,, Charles Roser.
By 1923 Will Bean and his hustlers
were long gone. But Mitch and his fam-
ily stayed on. Everyone liked Mitch, a
guy always willing to help a neighbor,
always ready to take Island youngsters
for outings in his cabin cruiser. There
was always a twinkle in his eye and a
quip on his lips. And folks knew they
could depend on him.
No wonder the slate headed by this
popular fellow was approved on Au-
gust 7. Full of optimism, Mitch set to
work to put the new town on the map.

Anna Maria Commission says 'yes' to rezone


While it's hard to remember an election where can-
didates didn't promise not to rezone anything in Anna
Maria City, last week commissioners voted to do just that.
They voted to rezone from commercial to Residen-
tial-2, the vacant property at 9907 Gulf Drive, on the
southeast comer of Gulf Drive and Spring Avenue. It is
just south of the city hall parking lot and diagonally across
the street from the Anna Maria Post Office.
Anna Maria city residents may also recall discus-
sion by the commission when owners Linda Kapisak
and Larry Albert offered to sell the property consisting
of two lots in March 1996 to the city "below market
value," for $180,000.
In a letter to the commission, the owners said then,
"The purchase of this parcel by the city would be a
benefit to all the taxpayers of Anna Maria and would
guarantee adequate parking for the future."
With a windfall of infrastructure funds from a por-


tion of a county-wide school tax, the city considered
the lots for off-site parking for the Center and increased
parking for city hall and beachgoers. The offer died
with commissioners agreed that they should look at
other available properties before accepting any offers.
No action was ever taken.
R-2 zoning allows more intense use than R-l and
is consistent with adjacent non-commercial property,
according to Public Works Director Phil Charnock.
Club Video and the Shackelford home (opposite Is-
landers' Market), both on Gulf Drive, are zoned com-
mercial but property east of the Albert/Kapisak lots is
also zoned R-2.
With R-2 zoning, Charnock says Albert and
Kapsiak will be allowed to build a duplex or two
single-family residences on the property. Although the
property address is Gulf Drive it is actually two lots
facing Spring, Charnock said.


At the June 24 commission meeting, Commis-
sioner Robert McElheny remarked, "We are about to
change our downtown to residential zoning," and asked
Albert if he was going to stay with R-2 zoning.
Albert told commissioners he intends to build two
single-family, multi-story homes with "Gulf views
from the top floor" and with access on Spring Avenue
for both.
Commissioner George McKay sympathized with
Albert and Kapisak's inability to find a commercial
buyer for the property. Referring to heavy commercial
usage that includes post office parking and late-night
bar business at Bortell's Bar across the street, McKay
asked, "Will we be continually badgered with com-
plaints from someone who buys this property?"
McKay voted against the rezoning. Mayor Chuck
Shumard, McElheny and Commissioner Elaine
Burkley approved the motion. Doug Wolfe was absent.


Catch-22 stymies EMS study committee


By Pat Copeland
Islander Reporter
Faced with a Catch 22, the Island's EMS (emer-
gency medical service) Study Committee plans to ask
the Anna Maria Fire Commission for help.
In January the committee recommended that the
fire district provide its own EMS service. The recom-
mendation was the result of a six-month study on op-
tions for EMS service. Committee members represent
the three Island cities, the Village of Cortez, the fire
district and Manatee County.
The committee was formed after the Island Demo-
cratic Club and the Coalition of Barrier Island Elected
Officials asked the fire district to study the options. The
requests were the result of attempts by the county to
change the way it provides EMS service, as well as an
increase in response times and a decrease in service,
which produced a tremendous outcry from district resi-
dents.
As part of the study, the committee asked county
officials to determine how much the county spends for

EMS service in the district. If residents approve the
committee's recommendation, members plan to ask the
county to refund those tax dollars, which the fire dis-
trict would collect to fund its EMS service.
Last month the committee met with Manatee
County Administrator Ernie Padgett, Assistant County
Administrator Dave Rothfuss and Financial Manage-
ment Director Jim Seuffert. They gave the committee
a range of options for tax rebates but said the decision
is up to the county commission, which could also de-
cide not to rebate any tax dollars.
Seuffert explained that in order rebate the tax dol-
lars the county would have to set up a separate EMS
taxing district that would exclude the Island. All juris-
dictions within the district, including the Cities of Pal-
metto and Bradenton, would have to agree to the cre-
ation of the district.

However Padgett said county commissioners are
concerned about whether the residents of the district
want the fire district to provide EMS service before
setting up the separate EMS taxing district.
Here's where the dilemma arises. The fire district
plans to hold a referendum to determine if residents want
the fire district to provide the service, but cannot do so
without telling them how much the service will cost.
"We're in limbo," Bradenton Beach Commissioner
Dan Goodchild declared. "The county wants us to get
an answer from the people without the figures."
The committee could hold the referendum without
stating the cost, Anna Maria Commissioner George
McKay said.
"The residents will say that the fire district is try-
ing to push it through without telling them how much
it will cost," Fire Chief Andy Price pointed out. "We
need a commitment from the county one way or the
other."
The committee agreed to recommend that the fire
commission ask the county to provide a definitive fig-
ure on the cost reduction for district residents.

Skin cancer: it can happen to you


By Andrew White
Islander Correspondent
Living in Florida is all about taking advantage of
the many great benefits this state has to offer: fine fish-
ing, temperate weather, clear waters, and the best
beaches anywhere.
It is these aspects that bring tourists here year after
year, and for many locals they are a big part of daily life.
What most of us do not realize is that the great outdoor
activities we enjoy subject us to high degrees of sunlight
which can be life threatening. The sunshine for which our
great state is nicknamed can be murder to your skin.
Burning your skin is bad for you. Your body will
tell you this by peeling the charred skin before it is
ready and, in severe cases, by blistering.
Even tanning which many of us find attractive
- is actually a sign of damaged skin and can lead to
premature wrinkles, liver spots and skin cancer. You
may not see the effects right away but sooner or later
they will show.
Stop by one of our local pubs and take a look at a
few of the old salts around the bar if you don't believe
me.
We can all agree that wrinkles and liver spots are
undesirable but an even more serious consequence of
too much sun is skin cancer and it can happen to
you.
Last year there were more than 800,000 reported
cases of skin cancer in the United States. The majority
of cases occurred in states with temperate weather like
Florida, Texas and California. The most common cause
of skin cancer is overexposure to the sun.

Watch for signs
There are three major types of skin cancer: basal
cell, squamous cell and melanoma. Basal cell is the
most common type, accounting for about 75 percent of
all skin cancers. It is a slow growing form of cancer that
does not usually spread to other parts of the body. If left
untended however, it can reach into tissues and bone
structure. Basal cell cancer usually appears as a brown
spot on the face or ear that in time becomes a sore that

won't heal over. It gradually expands, infecting the skin
around it.
Basal cell is rarely lethal but a person who devel-
ops it is at risk of having the cancer recur in the same
area or of developing another basal cell infection else-
where on the body.
The second most common type of skin cancer is
squamous cell. Similar to basal cell, squamous cell
tends to grow more rapidly and is more likely to spread
to other parts of the body. If caught early, it is nearly
100 percent curable. Squamous cell appears in areas
most exposed to the sun like the face, ears, legs, lips
and hands. It normally appears as small, round spots
that are slightly raised, red in color and crusty on the
surface. Like basal cell, squamous cell can be a small
sore that won't heal. While the survival rate for squa-
mous cell is quite high, it can be lethal if not detected
and treated in the early stages.
The least common, but by far most deadly, form of
skin cancer is melanoma. It spreads very quickly and
is most likely to infect distant parts of the body.
Melanoma can appear anywhere on the skin but
mostly develops in or around a mole. Any mole with
an irregular shape, size or color should be cause for
alarm, but only a dermatologist can tell if it is cancer-

ous. If detected early, most melanomas can be treated
successfully, but as it spreads the survival rate falls
drastically.

Best prevention don't
The best way to prevent skin cancer is to avoid
overexposure to the sun. The sun's rays are the stron-
gest from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. and the American Cancer
Society recommends staying out of the sun during
these times when possible.
If you are outside in the heat of the day, cover up
with a wide-brimmed hat, long sleeves and pants.
Sunscreen is another effective method of keeping
out of harmful rays of the sun. Use a sunscreen with a
sun protection factor of at least 15 and apply it 15 to 30
minutes before going outside. Remember to reapply
after swimming or sweating. And reapply often. A 15
factor does not mean you can stay in the sun 15 times
longer than normal.
Some things to keep in mind to avoid overexpo-
sure:
The sun's rays in Florida are strong enough to burn
you year 'round, so keep protecting yourself in the
winter.
Cloudy days are no exception so apply sunscreen
even if it looks dark out.
Harmful rays from the sun can penetrate three feet
of water. It may feel cool but the sun can still bur you

By David Futch
Islander Correspondent
Warren Spahn, arguably the best left-handed
pitcher who ever played professional baseball, had
many thrills during his career.
His biggest thrill? Depends on what it was, ac-
cording to Spahn.
There were a number of them and not all of
them related to baseball.
The first time he played in the "Bigs" was at the
top of his list. Playing on the pennant-winning Bos-
ton Braves and in the World Series in 1948 was a
thrill. Winning the Series in 1957 with the Milwaukee
Braves was another.
"At that time, that was the greatest thrill ever,"
Spahn said. "But thrills and peaks happen at vari-
ous times in your life. There were other thrills just
as big. When I got married. When my son was born.
When I was named an All-Star the first time. When
I won the Cy Young award [as best pitcher in the
National League]. When I was inducted into the
Hall of Fame was a big thrill. So you see, they're
all in their own arena."
And who was the best hitter Spahn ever faced?
"All of them."
All of them?
"All of them. You can't pitch the ninth inning un-
til you pitch the first. You can't get the third out until
you get the first out," Spahn said. "That guy that's up
there right now is the guy I've got to get out.
"You can never relax. Pitching is just like read-
ing a book. You turn page one, then you turn page
two, then you turn page three. Invariably, that in-
nocent little base on balls or that base hit you al-
lowed that you know damn well you shouldn't have
allowed, comes back to haunt you. Then all of a
sudden the good hitters come up in the last inning
and they could determine the outcome of the game.
So it's a discipline."
Birdie Tebbetts of Anna Maria City managed
Spahn in 1962 and also managed against him when
Tebbetts was with the Cincinnati Reds.
"If he isn't the greatest left-handed pitcher who
ever lived, I don't know who is. His record proves
that," Tebbetts said. "What separated him from the
rest was the fact he was so good at a lot of differ-
ent things. Not only was he a good pitcher, he was
a good hitter. He also had an exceptional move to
first base and nobody stole on him. He was a good
fielder. Most of all, he was smart.
"The Boston Braves won a pennant with him and
Johnny Sain. They had an old saying about that team.
'Spahn and Sain and pray for rain.' Spahn would pitch
one day, then Sain the next and if it rained the next,
that gave Spahn enough rest so he could pitch the fol-
lowing day. And he consistently won. And the Braves
won the pennant."

All-important stats
Now for some statistical backup as listed in "The
Baseball Encyclopedia."
During his 21-year career Spahn pitched in 750
games. He is fourth on the all-time win list with 363
victories, more than any left-hander in history.
For the stat freaks, the top three winningest pitch-
ers of all time were righties: Cy Young with 511 wins,
Walter Johnson with 414 and Christy Mathewson
with 373.
Spahn won 20 games a season 13 times and
pitched 63 shutouts. He led the National League in
earn run average three times and had a lifetime ERA
of 3.09 while leading the league in strikeouts four
straight years.
In 1963 when he was 42 and at an age when most
pitchers are years past their prime, Spahn was 23-7
with an ERA of 2.60.
During his career he pitched 5,243.2 innings, gave
up 4,830 hits, walked 1,434 men and struck out 2,583.
Spahn hit 35 home runs during his career.
In 1973, he was elected to the Baseball Hall of
Fame at Cooperstown, N.Y.
The numbers reinforce Tebbetts assertion about
Spahn's status as the greatest left-handed pitcher ever.
It's a remarkable accolade when you think
about some of the great southpaws: Sandy Koufax,
Steve Carlton who won the Cy Young four times,

Pitching theories
His theory on pitching is in opposition to the power
pitching of today's major leaguers. Spahn's success
was the result of finesse.
"The only difference between the game then and
now is the people in it. The rules are the same. It's still
90 feet between the bases, 60 feet six inches from
pitcher's mound to home plate," Spahn said. "The
game itself hasn't changed, only the people in it, and
the philosophy and the gun. That stupid gun that
records miles per hour.
"To me, hitting is timing and pitching is throwing
the hitter's timing off. People today are infatuated with
miles per hour. I don't give a damn how hard someone
throws, you can hit it. It's what the hitter sees. So that
means the delivery of the pitcher and how well he hides
the ball so the ball's on you before you know it. This
to me is the art of pitching.
"A good example today is the Atlanta Brave's
Greg Maddux, the finest pitcher in baseball today. He
knows how to pitch. Everyone talks about how he only
throws X number of miles per hour but every pitch that
he throws moves. Greg Maddux pitches in, out, up,
down and there's always spin on the ball. He's great.
He's a lot like the pitchers in my day. He has finesse."
Spahn said he still loves the game for the same
reasons he grew up loving it.
Baseball is played in the best season of all sum-
mer and dads and moms and kids can put on their
shorts and get outside (unless you're in a dome city like
Seattle or Houston and next summer Tampa Bay) and
eat popcorn and hot dogs and there's no time limit.
"You play nine innings whether it takes three hours
or whatever," Spahn said. "I hear the media complain
about how long the games are. What the hell's the dif-
ference? To me people pay to be entertained and the
longer the game goes, the more entertainment there is."
Oh, to see Spahnie pitch again. That's entertain-
ment.

Anna Maria's Spahn
Spahn is also in another hall of fame of sorts, al-
beit unofficial.
From 1942 to 1945, he served in the U.S. Army
and was at the battle of the Bridge at Remagen where
he was the first soldier to step foot on the infamous
crossroads. He was later captured by German forces.
Spahn was born in Buffalo, N.Y., on April 23,
1921, and has lived most of his life in Broken Arrow,
Okla., and since the 1950s has wintered in Anna Maria
City.
Spahn's seen a lot of the world but to him, Anna
Maria has the most beautiful beaches he has ever seen.
Spahn said he paid a phenomenal price in the
1950s for his first Gulffront lot: $10,000. He sold half
the land to Braves teammate Eddie Matthews because
he said he got nervous about spending so much money.
At the time, Spahn the best leftie in baseball -
was making $28,000 a year.
Today's great pitchers make that every inning they
pitch.

Spahn, Franklin continue


housewarming ways


By Jim Hanson
Islander Correspondent
Well, there are Infield and Outfield and the Mound.
Now baseball Hall-of-Fame pitcher Warren Spahn has
a fourth house on Anna Maria Island and he's sifting
through baseball-type names for it.
Helping him, as she has with all his properties here
for many years, is Marie Franklin of Anna Maria Re-
alty Inc.
The baseball giant's newest house is on Fir Avenue
in Anna Maria City. It has just been completed and is
up for rental, as are Spahn's other nearby properties.
Picture windows on the back of the house provide
a panorama of sea oats, snowy beaches and azure Gulf
waters. It is a sight to behold.
Franklin explained that she has known Spahn since
the mid-1950s, when he came here for spring training
with the Milwaukee Braves.
"Many players rented homes on the Island for the
training season," she said. "Some of them bought per-
manent homes for their families, the way Hutch [the
late Fred Hutchinson, Cincinnati Reds star] did with
Patsy and their children."
Spahn bought vacant land in Anna Maria City
about that time, through Gertrude Blassingame Realty.
Franklin's father and others in her family became pals


with Spahn, Hutchinson and other players, she said.
Her father, Ernie Cagnina, owned the IGA grocery
store in Anna Maria, now Islanders' Market.
Franklin went to work at Blassingame "as a
rookie," and after Ms. Blassingame's death she took
over the agency 21 years ago. She has managed
Spahn's properties all those years.
Spahn's properties include two houses on Spruce
Avenue, just behind the new one and named Infield and
Outfield, and a cottage on Spruce Avenue. He built that
one on property he bought with Braves third baseman
Eddie Matthews, and named it the Mound, as in pitcher's.
Spahn was born in Buffalo, N.Y., in 1921, but has
lived most of his life in Broken Arrow, Okla., where
he tends his ranch near Tulsa.
After his playing days he stayed in baseball in
management positions. He still works with youngsters
as an advisor, a mentor and an inspiration.
Yet, the question remains. Why does the greatest
left-handed pitcher who ever played the game come to
Anna Maria City?
"Because it has the most beautiful beaches I've
ever seen," Spahn said. "My son George and I were
standing on the beach the other day and a school of
tarpon rolled right in front of us. That's a pretty good
plus in my book."

The Island Poet
My hat's off to that sweet young gal in the checkout line,
Who keeps her cool and is smiling all the time.
She takes all the customers' complaints and never seems to worry,
Even though most folks are impatient and always in a hurry.
Then there's the customer who argues to no avail,
That the article she has is the one that is on sale.
And when they are proven wrong and she calls her bluff,
She throws the article down and goes off in a huff.
But when you pick up your packages and go on your way,
She always smiles and says, "Now have a nice day."

Mayor, er, major trouble
First off, I feel I must offer apologies to the fam-
ily members of Mary Ross. She was a gracious lady
but more so, I know her son and daughter personally
and knowing they have subscriptions to this news-
paper I feel compelled to apologize for the news that
the garden at Anna Maria City Hall considered to be
a memorial to their mother's beautification efforts is
destroyed.
I feel I've been the bearer of bad news as when
someone dies. And I'm ashamed of the process of gov-
ernment in this instance. I'm always expecting
improvements in communication and higher levels of
cooperation as our representatives gain experience.


I see now I expected too much.
I hope residents of Anna Maria City will find a
resolution for the garden vs. lawn situation created by
their mayor before going to the polls next year. That's
too long a wait.
While some residents in Anna Maria ponder their
forthcoming pipeline another dictatorial decision by
Mayor Chuck Shumard we're left to wonder why.
Why insist on a pipeline for drainage at 100 times
the cost of swale maintenance?
Why not resolve overgrown native plants with
"manicured" native plants?
We'll have to look "under the sod" for answers.
Maybe there's something too in the rumors circu-
lating among prospective buyers for the Anchorage
property in the reasoning for the pipeline. Quiet meet-
ings with potential buyers are resulting in rampant ru-
mors of what can and can't be done with the large
chunk of property left in a state of deterioration at Pine
and Bay Boulevard.
We heard, for instance, a new owner could raze the


S


building and start anew at ground level with a sur-
rounding four-foot wall to hold back flood waters.
Would that require a pipeline for drainage?
And of course, Roser Memorial Community
Church is hoping to carve out more land from the Seay
Brothers former holdings two lots adjacent to the
church. With Shumard a church member, they have at
least an early foot in the door.
The Anna Maria Oyster Bar across the street, still
dangles on a thin Seay Brothers string of ownership.
The operation of the pier has been turned over to John
Home, formerly the Seays manager. His new corpo-
ration free of Seay debts lists one of the Seays
as an officer. It has to, or the lease assignment would
be forced into open bidding.
Anyway, they need property for dumpsters, res-
taurant waste, grease traps and storage.
Everyone wants a little piece of that Anna Maria
pie. So, is Chuck doing the serving?

While pie is the hot menu item in Anna Maria,
chicken is tops on the list in Holmes Beach. If it turns
out Mayor Bob VanWagoner turns chicken and denies
he accused Commission Chairman Don Maloney of
becoming a Nazi, march yourself over to city hall and
ask to see the letter he wrote it in.
It's public record and there for all to see.
I'm hard pressed to think of any occasion in Anna
Maria politics when anyone deserved such an accusa-
tion and certainly not over chickens.
We heard another accusation this week this one
directed at the Holmes Beach mayor. It turned out to be
a rumor but had it been fact, it's certain VanWagoner
would have walked the plank.
A report that VanWagoner issued a letter prohib-
iting the Privateers from parading through Holmes
Beach proved to be false. It grew from a letter autho-
rizing the parade but limiting participation and es-
calated from there.
It appears parade participants would be prohibited
from walking, not riding, to expedite traffic on the main
roads, and from throwing items from their floats for
liability purposes. "That's nothing new," said Privateer
President John Swagger.
"In fact, our entry forms state that no items may be
thrown and participants must ride in or on vehicles,"
Swagger said. "It's always been a rule."
Cannon fire? No problem.
There was plenty of it in the 1997 Fourth of July
Parade. A great parade and party and a great effort for

With that said, you'll likely think my next com-
ment slightly solicitous. Not so.
The Privateers thanked the newspaper and pre-
sented me a plaque in appreciation of "help and support
over the years."
I feel the tables should be turned and we should be
thanking them.
As a fledgling newspaper, only five years old in
November this year, we've only begun to do what we
can to help the Privateers in their fundraising efforts.
We look forward to many more years and many

Trudy and Stewart Moon Jr. did the parade in style aboard the Air & Energy
mini Tin Lizzy. Wonder if the air-conditioning in the car works OK?


The parade received a "blessing" from an out-of-town "crewe" on the Fourth of
July. This year's parade was one of the biggest and best, most agreed, with
scores of participants and what appeared to be most of the Island in attendance.


The Privateers presented two Islanders with college scholarships after the
parade. Pictured, from left, are Greg Tyree, Lisa McGregor and Privateer John
Swagger. Tyree received $500, which will go toward his MCC tuition; McGregor
received the Whitey Horton Scholarship for $2,500 to continue her education at
the University of Central Florida.

It was a great reporting season as well and along
with Lou Fiorentino's painstaking compilation of sta-
tistics, we were able to recognize a large number of
children for their accomplishments on the field in Anna
Maria Island Little League.
We thank all of the sponsors who generously do-
nated money for uniforms and everything else it takes
to play ball and commend the coaches and parents who
volunteer their valuable time to make this league a suc-
cess.
Nobody can argue the fact that Tip of the Island's
Joey Mousseau's final Little League season was noth-
ing but a success. He proved to be the best player on
the best team and it showed at the awards presentations.
Mousseau took home the prestigious Maggio award as
the league's most valuable player and also walked off
with the batting title. The Ogden award for sportsman-
ship went to Anna Maria Fire District's Steve Yencho
who nipped Jeremy LeGrand of the Tip.
There were several outstanding moments from this
baseball season. Could there be any more drama than
when Joev Mousseau fouled a ball off his face, cutting
the inside of his mouth and then, bleeding and hurt, he
stepped back into the batter's box and hit a home run
in the All-Star game?
Have you ever seen a player dig into the batter's
box with a more determined look than Courtney Tay-
lor? I love the bewildered look on batters' faces when
Steve Yencho throws his "curve ball" by them for
strike three.
Following are notes and quotes from coaches, par-
ents and players on the season just completed.
SLou Fiorentino "I really enjoyed coaching
Jeremy LeGrand because he never complained, readily

accepted coaching and showed improvement every
year he played for me. He really impressed me when
he approached me to ask that he move to second base
and Taylor Manning go to shortstop because it would
be better for the team."
Lou also stated that he was impressed with
Courtney Taylor's desire to get better at the game. His
favorite recollection is of Kim DiPaola telling her fa-
ther/coach Vinnie DiPaola to calm down.
Vinnie DiPaola "I feel the league needs a
board of directors that are really interested in Little
League and that more parents need to get involved."
Player Bobby Gibbons "I was happy with my
hitting and fielding but kind of disappointed that our
team did not do as well as I thought we would."
Bob Gibbons Sr. "I feel the league is better off
financially provided all of the sign sponsors pay their
fees!"
He also stated, "The draft system seems to be
working well with not much separating the top teams
from the bottom teams. The newly instituted Triple A
pitching system for the 9- and 10-year-olds should defi-
nitely improve the league."
John Cagnina "I feel the season was very suc-
cessful and that our overall program is one that stresses
teamwork and the desire to strive to improve at some-
thing. This is something that carries over into the real
world."
He added, "I think one thing that would improve
the league would be more facilities in order to focus
more time on fundementals of baseball."
Elmo Torres "The AMICC All-Star Teams
have not done well in the playoffs. I feel that the new
Triple A system where the younger kids face live pitch-

Golf news
I ventured out to Manatee County Golf Course on
Sunday to take in the latest Silly Summer tour outing.
The Silly Summer tour is competitive golf between
friends best described as falling somewhere between
the PGA tour and the movie "Caddy Shack." There are
usually anywhere between four and 12 players for any
given outing. There's some good golf and some bad
golf being played but all members of the tour accept
insults about their game and play by the rules unless
they can get away with it.
Pulling one over against your opponents is difficult
at best, as players on the tour compete for large imagi-
nary prize money for the best front nine, back nine and
total score. There's also prize money (again, imagi-
nary) to be won on the four par 3 holes and for closest



Horseshoe winners
Winners in the July 5 horseshoe games were
Bill Starrett of Anna Maria and Russ Stemple of
Bradenton. Runners-up were Jim Seavy of Anna
Maria and Gene Snedeker of Holmes Beach.
The weekly contests get underway every Sat-
urday at 9 a.m. at Anna Maria City Hall Park,
10005 Gulf Drive. There are no membership fees
and everyone is welcome.


to the hole off the tee.
If no one gets on the green, money carries over to
the next par 3. If you think Tiger Woods faces pressure
when he putts for a million-dollar prize, then you
haven't stood over a four-footer for par that would win
a skin with opponents standing directly behind you try-
ing to "hex" you into missing your putt.
Sunday's action started on the par-5 fourth hole,
which is where I caught up to the foursome of Mike
Wood, Wayne Wood, Mark Bowers and Lance Bieker.
This narrow, tree-lined hole is referred to as the
"voodoo hole" because it tends to eat golf balls. It was
no different today, as both Mike Wood and Bieker had
to search for wayward shots.
Wayne Wood was the story on the front nine as he
opened a four-shot lead over Mark Bowers by playing
steady, unspectacular golf. Bowers was hindered by his
tendency on this day to hit "elephant" drives. (High and
stinky.)
Mike Wood and Lance Bieker both struggled on
the front with scores of 59 and 55 respectively.
The back nine was more of the same as Wayne
kept up the pressure by parring the first two holes be-

fore they came to the par-3 12th hole with three "skins"
on the line.
Wayne shot first and put it on the green, but left a
lot of room to get a ball inside of his. No one else in the
foursome was able to put it on the green so Wayne
captured the skins.
Mike Wood won the skin on the par-3 16th hole to
complete a turn around in his play as he recovered to
shoot a 43 on the back nine. Bowers also carded a 43
to finish with an 89 while Bieker stumbled in with a
118.
Wayne continued to play steady golf, finishing the
final nine in 40 to complete a respectable 82 for the
day.
Wayne won the money but bought the beer in the
clubhouse afterwards, perhaps fearing he wouldn't get
called to join the tour the following week.
I can't wait for the OK from my doctor to resume
playing golf as there's "money" to be won and lost
on the tour.
See you on the tee!

Medfly spraying, water testing, fossil fun, too


By Bob Ardren
Outdoor Perspectives
It's going to be a silent summer in Tampa. Day
after day, aircraft are spreading Malathion over the
most-populated areas of Hillsborough County and, not
surprisingly, the poison is now showing up in the area's
waterways.
Tropical fish farmers have lost thousands of fish to
the spraying. Beekeepers, already hit hard this year by
mites, are losing bees to the spraying too. But "don't
worry," the government officials say, "we're only kill-
ing the Mediterranean fruit fly, and we won't hurt you."
But they go on to suggest keeping your pets and
children inside while spraying is happening in your
neighborhood.
It's all pretty strange, and certainly not very
straightforward. Many of us remember a few years
back when tens of thousands of citrus trees were de-
stroyed locally "to kill citrus canker," only to learn later
that it wasn't really necessary.
The fact is that officials carrying out the spraying
program, either intentionally or unintentionally, aren't
leveling with the people who end up being sprayed.
Questions aren't being answered and believe me, there
are plenty of questions about what's going on in
Hillsborough County.
Thus far, the only government official asking ques-
tions is Roger Stewart, head of Hillsborough's Envi-
ronmental Protection Commission. He's calling for
answers to questions about the wisdom of spraying
sensitive wetlands and suburban yards. And he doesn't
seem to be getting answers either.
For the time being, a limited finding of Medflies in
Palmetto has resulted only in ground spraying in the
immediate area.
Mostly, let's hope they don't find the need to bring
their aerial spraying program here.

New water-testing pressure
Gloria Rains, chair of ManaSota-88, has appealed
to Manatee County Commission Chairwoman Pat
Glass for some action on testing of local beach waters.
In a letter to Glass, Rains points out that a Tampa tele-
vision station recently reported Manatee County's fail-
ure to "ensure the safety of the public because it fails
to have a beach water quality testing program."
Rains suggested that she'd been given the same
reason tossed to The Islander Bystander that being
there are no national standards so "What can we do?"
by county officials.
"A call to Pinellas County could provide Manatee
staff with the procedures the excellent Pinellas County
beach-testing program follows," she suggested.

Cousteau at Notre Dame
Services for Jacques Cousteau were held in Notre
Dame Cathedral June 30. He died early June 25 at the
age of 87.
Personages ranging from French President Jacques
Chirac to Cousteau's workaday scuba divers joined
hundreds of onlookers at what the New York Times
called "a funeral Mass of the kind normally reserved
for heads of state."
"He was a great spokesman for the oceans," said
Francois Sarano, who worked with Cousteau. "Now it
will be much harder to be heard."

Reds still thick; silver kings off beaches


By Capt. Mike Heistand
It appears that the Fourth of July boat traffic
didn't drive all the fish out of the water after all.
Tarpon are still thick off the beaches and in
Longboat Pass, catch-and-release snook and redfish
are the backwater best bets and offshore action for
snapper and permit is still good.
Dick at the Rod and Reel Pier said pier fishers
there have been catching big redfish at night, catch-
and-release snook in the mornings, with some
linesiders about 20 inches long. Other action in-
cludes mangrove snapper, mackerel and an occa-
sional flounder.
Kelly at the Anna Maria City Pier said anglers
there are catching a lot of mackerel, blue runners and
some jacks.
Jamie at Miss Cortez Fishing Fleet said the
four-hour trips averaged 175 head of Key West
grunts and black sea bass. The six-hour trips aver-
aged 150 head of lane and vermillion snapper, Key
West grunts and black sea bass. The nine-hour trips
averaged 40 head of red and black grouper, scamp
and mangrove snapper.
Carl at Perico Island Bait & Tackle said wade
fishers are reporting good catches of nice-sized
trout. Redfish are moving up into the mangroves and
tarpon are in Longboat Pass.
Capt. Mark Bradow said tarpon are still thick
off the beaches. In the bays, he's doing well with
reds and catch-and-release snook being the best bets.
On my boat Magic we've been catching permit,
redfish, catch-and-release snook, trout, mangrove
snapper and pompano, all in Sarasota Bay.
Capt. Tom Chaya said he's been catching
catch-and-release snook off the beaches and tarpon
near shore. Backwater angling is producing redfish
on the better tides.
Capt. Thom Smith at Angler's Repair said red-
fish are coming on strong in Terra Ceia Bay, with
trout being caught in the mouth of the bay. He's also
finding some nice-sized catch-and-release snook.
Rick at Island Discount Tackle said tarpon are
still being caught near the beaches, with permit com-
ing on strong off the artificial reefs in the Gulf of
Mexico, as are triggerfish and snapper.
Capt. Mike Greig said he's putting his charters
onto reds up to 30 inches in length in the bays.
Sharking is starting to pick up, with black tip and
lemons being caught.
Jack at the Cortez Fishing Center said 100-
180-pound tarpon are being caught locally. Off-
shore, there are 20-pound grouper being caught in
about 120 feet of water.
Good luck and good fishing.
