Holmes Beach offers police service Islandwide
By Pat Copeland
A Holmes Beach commissioner's concern over his
city's police budget has resulted in an offer to police
the other two Island cities.
"The services we get from the police department
are the finest I've seen anywhere, but we have to be
aware that their proposed budget is 47 percent of our
total budget," Commissioner Luke Courtney said at last
week's work session on the 1997-98 village rate.
Courtney said, in comparison, police budgets in
other local cities are: Anna Maria, 33 percent:
Bradenton Beach, 29 percent: Longboat Key, 15 per-
cent: and Bradenton, eight percent.
"We have two choices, either be aware we're spend-
ing 47 percent of our budget for the fine service we're
getting, or try to find some way to maintain the present
level of services but cut the cost," he said. "One way to cut
our cost is to have the city contact Anna Maria and
Bradenton Beach to see if they'd like a quote from us on
providing police service for their municipalities."
Commissioner Pat Geyer said she likes the idea.
She also pointed out that the police dispatch center adds
to the department's costs.
Commissioners Ron Robinson and Don Maloney
were in agreement. Commissioner Carol Whitmore
"When you compare departments and budgets. you
have to look at a lot of things." Police Chief Jay Romine
explained. "Longboat Key, for example, has about 30 per-

Bradenton Beach bike path
funding near-certain thing
By Paul Roat
Bicycle and pedestrian paths may extend the length
of the Island by early next century with Monday's affir-
mative vote by a regional transportation planning group.
Sarasota-Bradenton Metropolitan Planning Orga-
nization members approved a list of transportation en-
hancement project priorities for the year 2002-03.
Number two on the list is the $250,000 bike and pedes-
trian path in Bradenton Beach.
MPO Planner Keith Drake said past years have
seen about $300,000 funded within that spending cat-
egory of the Florida Department of Transportation.
However, since the top priority on the list is a $2.8
million Venice park acquisition project, DOT officials
will probably bump that project in favor of the Island
Another bonus on the Island plan is a 10 percent
match to the work, something not present in the Venice
proposal. State officials generally look more kindly
upon projects that have a financial contribution by lo-
A final decision to approve or deny the bike path
will probably be made by the DOT in September.
DOT officials have already agreed to do about
$500,000 worth of bike path and sidewalk work in
Anna Maria and HIolmes Beach in fiscal year 1999-
2000, although that work may be accelerated if com-
missioners in those two cities agree to pay up-front
costs for the work and then get reimbursed by the DOT.
The Bradenton Beach end of the project came at
the urging of former Mayor Katie Pierola, a group of
citizens who met in 1995 dubbed the 789 Task Force,
and the lobbying efforts of Bradenton Beach Mayor
Leroy Arnold and Commissioner Connie Drescher.
Design work for the project still has to be done by
the DOT, but the proposal includes the following im-
provements, (depending on engineering studies and
cost estimates, not all proposals may come to pass):
Provide a five-foot-wide designated bicycle lane
on each side of Gulf Drive.
Provide two-foot curbing on the east side of Gulf
Provide a six-foot-wide sidewalk on the east side
of Gulf Drive.
Provide landscaping, where the right-of-way al-
lows, on the east side of Gulf Drive.

The legislature just passed a law that allows cit-

effective and efficient. You have to consider there are
three very different, unique personalities in the cities on

up 200 percent
By J. C. Higgins
Anna Maria commissioners have endorsed a ten-
tative property tax rate identical to last year's village
figures for the next fiscal year.
Meeting in a budget workshop Monday, the com-
mission unanimously voted for a property tax rate of
1.70 mills, the same as the current ad valorem tax rate.
A mill is $1 for every $1.000 of assessed value of a
house less any homestead exemptions, if applicable.
Commissioners usually don't cast votes in work-
shops, allowing formal approvals to take place at com-
mission meetings. The Monday Anna Maria Commis-
sion meeting was scheduled as a "budget workshop."
Public hearings on the budget will be scheduled in
Anna Maria in September. Setting of a tentative prop-
erty tax rate is required by Florida Statutes for the Truth
In Millage statements mailed to all taxpayers in the
county. Due to cost and public notification restraints,
tax rates generally do not go higher than the tentative
Another highlight in the Anna Maria budget sce-
nario is the building permit fee. Currently, new con-
struction or reconstruction in the city is assessed a $30
fee plus $6 for every $1.000 of construction value.
In an effort to provide what Building Official Phil
Charnock called a "self-sufficient" public works de-
partment and to be consistent with the other build-
ing departments on the Island lie proposed increas-
ini fees 200 percent.
Building application fees would increase to $50.
The charge per $1.000 of construction on new or re-
modeled homes would increase from the current $6 to
a proposed $18. For projects of $ 1.000 or less, the per-
$ 1,000 fee is $15. Charnock said the last time fees were
increased was in 1992.
"By making the change, it will raise the revenue
from $24,000 to $90,000, and we would be the same as
Bradenton Beach and Holmes Beach." Charnock said.

Road work a headache for some, not for others
By Pat Copeland
Holmes Beach merchants have mixed reactions to
the road work, now in its third week, that has closed
lanes of traffic from 56th Street at Marina Drive to Gulf
Merchants received short notice of the six-week
project which began July 14. The work is part of the
city's stormwater drainage program.
Jim Wickwire of Island Package Liquors at 5508
Marina Drive is one of the most affected.
"My business has been off about 50 percent." he
said. "It would have been nice to have received some
advance notice so I could have cut down on my order-
After the first week, Wickwire said he spoke to Mayor
Bob VanWagoner who agreed to open the southbound
lane with a sign proclaiming, "Travel at your own risk."
Wickwire said that gave him some relief.
"There's no question it's had a little effect on walk-
ins, but that's a small part of our business at this time of
the year," said Bill Coleman, owner of Island Florist in the
Island Shopping Center. "A large part of our business right
now is phone-in. The biggest problem for us is getting out
onto Holmes Boulevard for deliveries."
Holmes Boulevard has inadvertently become a
busy thoroughfare during the construction, Holmes
Beach Police Chief Jay Romine said.
"Holmes Boulevard was supposed to be for busi-
ness access during the road work but people have made
it into a detour route," Romine pointed out. "If you look
at the detour signs, they direct people to Gulf Drive
where the line of sight is much better and it's safer and
quicker to get out."
As a result, the corner of Holmes Boulevard and
Gulf Drive has become a problem area, Romine said.
With the traffic light at Gulf and Marina Drives flash-
ing yellow, the cars have a difficult time turning onto
"We thought about putting up temporary four-way
stop signs but decided against it," Romine noted. "We

Betsy Lyle is the winner of the Bradenton Beach
seal and motto contest.
The Bridge Street graphic designer's artwork of the
under-construction clock tower with the motto "Blessed
With History, Hospitality, Spirit" was selected by
Bradenton Beach commissioners from a field of 43
entries. Lyle will receive $100 for the winning design.
Second-place award went to Paul Arnold for his
design of a shell and boat steering wheel with the motto
"Stands Alone." Arnold will receive dinner for two at
Caffe Splendido in Bradenton Beach. Arnold is son of
Mayor Leroy Arnold, who absented himself from the
judging process to avoid any potential conflict of inter-
"I thought of sailing or birds," Lyle said of the cre-
ative process that went into creating the design. "but
that's not really indicative of Bradenton Beach those
elements could be anywhere. I didn't want the seal to
look like something from a country club. I wanted
something that looked warm and inviting."
Lyle is the owner of Island Printery in Bradenton
Beach, a business she started a little more than a year
ago. She's not a new face on the Island, having worked
for the Islander newspaper in the late 1980s after a stint
with a daily newspaper. Lyle was-the manager of the

southbound lane 6f Marina Drive opens up, we'll turn
the traffic light back on."
Another hard-hit merchant is Marty Duytschaver,
owner of Sun and Surf at the Marina Drive corer of
the Island Shopping Center.
"The first three days of construction, I lost 50 percent
of my business a day," he said. "Now it's about 25 per-
cent a day. I wish we could have had a couple of months
notice so I could have ordered less merchandise."
Duytschaver's son Shawn, operator of Sand Dol-
lar Gift Shop, said he has not had any problems but re-
alizes his location at the Gulf Drive comer of the Island
Shopping Center has been a blessing.
"Business has fallen off." said Bill and Allene
Koehn of Bay Area Travel. "Older people are confused
by it and don't know how to get in here. But if this fixes
the drainage problem, maybe it's worth it."
Carly Carlson and Bren Jackson of Phoenix Frame
said the work has affected their walk-in business and
also created a parking problem both for customers in
front and employees behind the shopping center.

"They said it would be done in phases and it has

performance of the city. We've had nothing from them
about when the work is to be done or what's happen-

Joe Duennes, the city's public works supervisor,
said the work is on schedule.
"There will be one more cut across both lanes, then
there will ble a lot of odds and ends to clean up," he
said. "The road will be filled up flush with shell in all
areas, hopefully, by the end of the week."
Problems encountered by the contractor have in-
cluded high tides, county water mains and an unmarked
phone line, Duennes said. Because of high tides filling
storm drains last week, the city allowed the construc-
tion crew to start work at 5 a.m. and work until 8 p.m.
"At one point, there was a county water main in the
way and the crew had to be very careful," Duennes
said. "Those things are fragile and if one broke it would
affect the whole Island. We got past the first one and
there's one more to go."

Pet protest continues in
Holmes Beach Commissioner Don Maloney
went to the farm to check out the pigs this week to .
make his point: If the mayor wants to consider .
chickens as pets, pigs should qualify too.-
Maloney says Sabine Buehler, owner of two chick-
ens and a resident at 72nd Street in Holmes Beach, took
the issue too far in her interview in the daily newspa-
She claims retribution for her protest over the lo-
cation of the cellular radio tower, Maloney said. "She
said I argued with her. I argued with no one that morn-
ing. I listened to their attitudes about the tower."
Maloney said most of the protesters agreed with
him and he introduced the request for a moratorium.
The city attorney is presently working on preparing
the moratorium for the commission's consideration.
Buehler claims the code enforcement officer
came to her door two days after the cell tower pro-
test but according to Maloney, even though he may
have "showed up at her door that day, the first time
he went to her door about the chicken complaint was
May 19, long before the June 10 cell tower protest."
Mayor Bob VanWagoner visited the Buehlers
home and told code enforcement the chickens quali-
fied as pets but Maloney says that is not his decision
Maloney continues to stress that he is looking for
fair enforcement of city ordinances. The ordinance pro-

Woman rescues swimmer at Bean Point
By Pat Copeland
When Elvira Michaels took a leisurely stroll on the
beach with her girlfriend last week, she never dreamed
'she would end up saving a life.
"It was about noon and we were walking at the
curve at Bean Point when we heard someone calling for
help in German," Michaels recalled. "At first I thought
it was joke, then I realized it was serious. I threw ev-
erything down and ran into the water."
Gertrude Barten, of Weilerswist, Germany, was
standing in the water with her four-year-old daughter
Jessica, Michaels said. Her husband, Georg, had been
carried out by the current and she was frozen in shock.
"I asked her to give me the child's 'swimmies' (in-
flatable arm bands)," Michaels continued. "I told my
girlfriend to call for help and I swam out to him. There
was a very strong undercurrent. I called out to him to
encourage him and told him to be calm."
Michaels said she reached Barten, gave him the
"swimmies" to put on and the pair swam back together.
About three quarters of the way back, another beach
goer reached them with a boogie board.
Michaels said she was so exhausted from fighting
the current and aiding Barten that she couldn't stand
up. Anna Maria firefighters and EMS arrived and
cooled her down with ice packs and administered oxy-
gen before taking her home.
'I never thought I could do something like that,"
she said. "I was really happy I could help and that ev-
erything turned out so good. The police said he would
Barten and his family brought champagne and
flowers to Michaels the next day and spent the evening
with her and her husband, John. Michaels, who is Ger-

for 25 years before retiring to Anna Maria. They trans-
lated for Barten.
I had no idea it was so dangerous," Barten said.

sat down in the shallow water (where the currents from
the Gulf and Bay meet) and the current carried me out

Planners OK contiguous lot ordinance
By Pat Copeland
The Holmes Beach Planning Commission ruled last
week that a proposed contiguous lot ordinance is in com-
pliance with the city's comprehensive plan.
The ordinance will allow the owner of contiguous
non-conforming legal lots to split those lots and sell them.
Only single family homes can be built on the lots.
The ordinance will also allow the owners of a home
built on two or more contiguous non-conforming lots of
record to demolish that home and build a single family
home on each lot.
The issue started last year when resident Joe
Kennedy, owner of two contiguous lots, sought approval
to build if he sold one lot. A portion of his home en-
croached on the second lot and Building Official Joe
Duennes said according to the 1989 comprehensive plan
and city code, if one person owns two contiguous lots, the
lots must be combined.
The commission then became aware of numerous
other property owners in the same predicament, studied
the problem and asked the city attorney to draft the ordi-
Although the planning commission's decision was
unanimous, Planner Bruce Golding said the ordinance
violates city policy.
"This has been on the books for 10 years and I don't
like going back in time and revisiting these issues con-
stantly," Golding stressed. "We get into trouble in this
town when we start tweaking things around for various
people. The purpose of declaring a non-conformity is to
phase it out. Now we're backtracking. I don't support it."
Now a planning board member, Joe Kennedy, who's
plight caused the ordinance to be written, said the prob-
lem arose because in the past the code was never inter-
preted strictly. He said it will only affect a few lots because
the city is 97 percent built-out.
Planners, except for Golding, disagreed with the pro-
vision that no variances be granted on contiguous lots that
"You can't expand or aggravate a non-conformity."
Kennedy said the lots were conforming until the city
made them non-conforming and the code allows for a 20-
percent variance on a conforming lot.
"Everybody should have the right to ask," Chairman
Sue Normand maintained. "I think 75 percent of the single
family residential lots in this city are non-conforming.
They have been built on and given variances in some
cases. It would be discriminating."
Board members also noted that Sections 7 and 8 of the
ordinance contradict each other.
Section 8 allows for "demolition of a dwelling which
traverses two or more contiguous legal non-conforming
lots of-record" and the construction of a single-family
dwelling on each lot.
Section 7 says if the non-conformity is discontinued
for a period of 180 days it cannot be re-established.
The board's recommendation will be forwarded to the
city commission with their concerns along with a sugges-
tion to make all legally platted lots in the city conforming.
The city commission plans to discuss the recommen-
dation at its Aug. 5 work session.
Getting ready for 'the tide'
By J.C. Higgins
According to the organization called S.T.A.R.T.
(Solutions To Avoid Red Tide, Inc.), being "red tide
ready" is of equal importance as being "hurricane
ready." In either circumstance, the key is being in con-
trol as much as possible to avoid a disaster. There is an
urgent need to increase citizen awareness of the poten-
tial dangers of the red tide algae which resides miles
out from our beaches on the Continental Shelf.
In a discussion group sponsored by the Anna Maria
Island Chamber of Commerce, Longboat Key Commis-
sioner Jim Patterson and Rob Haglund, the president and
the executive director of S.T.A.R.T., presented a status
report of their efforts, and requested the mayors of the
coastal communities to assist them in drumming up citi-
zen involvement and private funding to support research
into the possibility of controlling red tide.
What was once felt to be an infrequent irritant at the
beach is now recognized as a full-blown health hazard.
Last year red tide was responsible for the death of 10 per-
cent of the Florida manatee population. These warm-
blooded mammals died of suffocation, as the red tide toxin
clogged their lungs. It is believed that the remaining mana-
tee population has been permanently damaged.
S.T.A.R.T. officials point out that the majority of
present federal funding is focused in scientific research,
such as is now carried on at Mote Marine Laboratory.
It is their intention to raise seed money and begin re-
directing some efforts toward controlling the bloom,
and keeping it off our shores.
Patterson believes once the federal government sees
the grass roots involvement, the necessary funds will be
made available to bring the danger under control.
The research for control solutions is underway with
very limited funding. One of the world's most promi-
nent authorities, Donald Anderson of the Woods Hole
Oceanographic Institute, has been contracted and is
studying several possible control mechanisms, but
these efforts must be accelerated and timing is critical.
One of the most promising avenues to control red
tide outbreaks is being used in Japan. Fine-sediment
clay is dumped into the water where red tide is located,
forcing the algae to the bottom where it is not a threat
to marine or human organisms.
Over 20 years ago a study was released showing
that an average bloom lasting three to four months re-
sulted in economic losses to Florida of $20 million.
Updating these numbers, a Gulf Coast restaurateur re-
cently estimated that red tide had cost his three loca-
tions more than $1 million in the past three years.
The peak bloom season runs August October.
Red tide is caused by blooms of a tiny marine or-
ganism called a dinoflagellate. The microscopic organ-
isms produce powerful toxins that cause extensive fish
kills, contaminate shellfish and can cause severe respi-
ratory irritation to humans.

Consoling to some, but not all
So, here we go again with another consolidation
study proposal. What's more, Holmes Beach is look-
ing at trying to snooker the other Island cities into al-
lowing them to broker police services to them.
That proposal seems awful familiar, too.
We perceive too many feisty, independent people
on this Island that would never give up an iota of their
own city's unique municipal leadership to let consoli-
dation ever become more than an occasional
newcomer's wistful dream.
This time around, Holmes Beach Commissioner
Luke Courtney is promoting the handling of law en-
forcement duties Islandwide as a means to offset the
city's $1 million police budget.
There was one suggestion we heard a while ago in
this regard that struck us as worth pursuing. This po-
lice consolidation effort would effectively incorporate
police department operations on the Island into some-
thing modeled after the fire department.
Each mayor could serve on a policy-making board
that would offer direction to supervisors, establish bud-
gets and approve expenses. Other members of the
board could be elected from among Island's residents.
Granted, each Island city would have to have some
form of a "chief' and supervisors through the ranks, so
salaries probably wouldn't be greatly reduced gen-
erally the biggest element of any police budget.
But with escalating costs of everything and with
everyone else seeming to be jumping on a consolidation
train we'd like to offer our suggestion for further study.
Cluck, cluck, amuck
It's not the chickens. It's the process. Read my lips.
We're accused of being one-sided on the chicken
issue by the chicken owners and we beg to differ.
We have not stated in "our opinion" any preference
for or against chickens as pets in this current fracas be-
cause we don't care. It certainly has brought everyone
some amusement and some despair over the asso-
But, different people, different pets. It's that simple.
It appears that readers accept the opinions of letter
writers as those of the newspaper. It's important to note
the difference: Our opinion. Your opinion.
Last week, we wrote, "Don't you know good folks
with something other than the ordinary house pet? Liz-
ards, snakes, spiders, ferrets or rabbits for instance."
We stated, "It seems the city would be better
served to define nuisance."
If any pet is a continuing nuisance, disturbing the
peaceful quiet enjoyment of one's property, there
should be steps taken to correct the problem and
measures prescribed by law to accomplish that end.

SLICK Remake of the Tale Of Three Cities By Egan
IYOUR OPII]Nll I
Teamwork needed on Island
Having known the beauty of Anna Maria Island for
30-some years, I find it difficult not to submit a letter
to the only newspaper on the Island regarding Anna
Maria City Hall's landscaping. A newspaper, as many
of us forget, is the opinion of current events as ex-
pressed and written from one reporter's view. A news-
paper does not necessarily report the facts accurately.
What are the facts? How many of the plants are
actually native to this area? What percent of the natu-
ral "wild plant" landscape was removed by the City?
Was thehe size of the area ever printed in the paper? The
area that is being referred to is a 15- by 30-foot section.
Are there still abundant areas of the native "wild plant"
landscape still intact for visitors to appreciate, volun-
teers to work on and for Mr. Miller to show potential
clients and harvest baby plants out for his other land-
Was the metal sculpture, hidden by the overgrown
landscape and dedicated to Mary Ross, broken because
the contractor for the Island Playhouse could not see it?
Was the overgrown landscape that bordered the public
walkway to city hall a safe path free from rats and
snakes for many of the Islands senior citizens?
Do not the majority of people that elect a person to
office do so because they themselves do not have the
time or the desire to do the job, and expect the person
they chose to do what they believe to be the best for the
I truly wish I did not have to ask these questions so
as to prevent a small non-life-threatening issue from
receiving another headline. Anna Maria Island has be-
come a diverse community, with too many people
thinking they know what is best for the Island when in
reality they are reflecting what is only in their best in-
Teamwork is lost. Commissioners and mayors that
have been elected to preserve the Island's beauty, se-
renity and safekeeping for its people struggle to accom-
plish these things because there appears to be little sup-
port for each other and minimal compromising. If there
is no teamwork, how can a small Island, with three
small cities, unite and be good neighbors?
Is it because it is the only Island newspaper, that
businesses support it, when it goes beyond good news,
bad news, opinions and into attempts to aggravate and
inflame issues, irate neighbors against neighbors and
minimize the facts by sarcastic and critical opinions?
In sports, in school, in play, in life, is it not the team that
works together that ends up the winners?
Nancy Berry, Bradenton
The subject has arisen again about consolidating
our three city governments for the overall betterment
of the Island. You won't hear a lot from most Island
old-timers on this subject because they have been
through it many times before and know it just ain't
For you newcomers and particularly Mayor
VanWagoner, I would like to point out several serious
flaws in your proposed consolidation effort.
First, bigger is not better in government. Show me
any government agency that by getting larger has pro-
vided better service at lower cost. In fact, the opposite
is true. Large government agencies tend to become
ineffective, inefficient and bureaucratic over time.
Secondly, we have three distinct cities on the Is-
land. I see the cities as people, each with its own per-
sonality, character and charm. No on is any better than
Bradenton Beach has always been a blue collar,
working community; Holmes Beach the business cen-
ter of the Island' and Anna Maria a retirement commu-
nity. Is it any wonder our cities disagree on many is-
sues when we have diverse interests and cultures? Do
we want to lose our individuality? I think not.
There may be opportunities for our cities to im-
prove their cooperation on Islandwide issues and
have better working relationships. I would like to see
Anna Maria discuss contracting the Holmes Beach
Police Department if for no other reason than pro-
vide competition for the Manatee County Sheriff's
Department. But the idea of combining the three
city's governments has and always will be a bad idea
for our residents.

ON THE BALLOT
A small bond issue to widen the
present road [Snapper Street, later to
become Gulf Drive] from its junction
with the street [Pine Avenue] that bi-
sects the island at Anna Maria is the
first plan of the new government. This
widening will be carried through to the
southern boundary of the town. From
Cortez Beach to Anna Maria the public
road has been a rut road but County
Commissioner W.I. Kirkhoffhas a force
of men engaged in widening it to nine
feet of solid shell surface from Cortez

three and one-half miles.
The Evening Herald, July 30, 1923
SThe $600 bank loan Mayor Mitch
Davis arranged for in December 1923
to tide the five-month-old Town of
Anna Maria over until the New Year
was only a stop-gap measure. Davis
knew that. In his election campaign he
had talked about floating bonds to mod-
ernize the town. He intended to go for
it as soon as possible.
In the winter of 1923-24 it certainly
seemed the time was ripe for selling
people on the future of Anna Maria, for
the Land Boom had really taken off in
Manatee County. Swarms of tin-can
tourists camping on the shore of the
Manatee River, eager to buy Florida
lots. Banks and hotels going up down-
town. A Woolworth's 5 & 10 store
about to open. The new Bradenton Op-
timist Club vying with the Kiwanis
Club in a frenzy of boosterism.

planning to film another movie on the
Island. He'd shot two South Seas ad-
ventures here already-one called
"Blue Waters" and the other, "The Is-
land of Destiny."
No wonder Mayor Davis rushed to
get the bond question on the ballot in
February. The proposition was for
$40,000 worth of bonds paying 6 per-
cent interest annually until 1954. The
money was to be used for: "Opening,
grading and paving streets; installing a
light plant; installing an ice plant; erect-
ing public buildings; installing appara-
tus for fire protection; installing drain-
age; and for the town's indebtedness
and current expenses."
Anna Maria voters backed the
bonds wholeheartedly, pledging as se-
curity not only their property, but also
their "personal integrity."
Many of them would live to regret it.

Holmes Beach Commissioner Carol Whitmore
said she'll make a motion to rescind the vote on a spe-
cial exception for a cellular phone tower.
A month ago, commissioners voted on the special
exception requested by GTE to build a cell tower at
Smith Realtors, 5910 Marina Drive. The motion to
approve the special exception failed for a lack of a
Commissioners Whitmore and Ron Robinson
voted to approve the special exception and Commis-
sioners Don Maloney and Luke Courtney voted
against it. Commissioner Pat Geyer was absent.
GTE officials requested a reconsideration of the
action because the full commission was not present for
the vote and a special exception requirement was not
met. Any decision to deny a request requires a writ-
ten notice, supported by substantial evidence con-
tained in a written record.
City Attorney Patricia Petruff researched Roberts
Rules of Order to determine the correct procedure for
the requested action.
"It is our opinion that the motion to reconsider
must have been made prior to the end of the July 1 ses-
sion," she explained. "Once the session ended, the
motion to reconsider would no longer be appropriate."
She said a motion to rescind previous action can
be made but must have prior notice, unless the motion
is made and passed on a two-thirds vote.
"A member of the commission can provide notice
By J.C. Higgins
Volunteer Mike Miller would like to continue his
long, seven-year gratis effort of cultivating native
plantings around Anna Maria City Hall. His work. and
that of his group of loyal \ volunteers, has ground to a
halt, as Miller finds himself "caught in the middle"
between city hall and the Players renovation.
He's between the proverbial rock and a hard place,
when it comes to his past efforts and his future plans to
make the area a showplace of natural Florida flora.
"It takes longer for native plants to grow and cre-
ate a Florida environment," Miller said. "For example,
you can't buy native grass in sod form, you must plant
seed. But we are in this for the long term and authen-
tic beautification of Anna Maria, and we should be
willing to pull together and make this happen."
Miller's detailed landscape plan dated September
1990 was submitted to the commission and Island Play-
ers for approval and work began shortly thereafter.
Joe Hutchinson, owner of Beach-Style Boutique
across from city hall, says the native landscaping was
"a 200 percent improvement over what was there be-
fore Mike and Mary started. It was a wasteland."
Presently, much of that landscaping in front of city
hall has been leveled. Mayor Chuck Shumard plans for
replacement landscaping features Bermuda grasses.
Shumard decided to take a backhoe to the native
plantings several weeks ago. He cited a number of
citizen complaints regarding the landscaping as ratio-
nale for the native plant removal.
Garden volunteers say they hope the replacement
lawn will enhance the overall environment of this
prime slice of our Island community.

The Holmes Beach Police Department will
commemorate the National Night Out Against

The community-wide event will begin at
8:30 a.m. at the Holmes Beach Police Depart-

Beach Police Officer Sandy Keller at 778-
at this meeting that he or she will make a motion to re-
scind previous action at the next regularly scheduled
meeting," she said. "Then it would only need to be ap-
proved by a majority vote."
Whitmore gave the notice so the entire commission
could vote on the matter, she said. The vote will be
taken at the Aug. 19 commission meeting.
Commissioners can reopen the public hearing at that
time, Petruff said. She also recommended that the com-
mission pass a resolution on whatever action is taken in
order to fulfill the special exception requirement.
A motion to rescind is not a motion to approve,
Petruff said. "It puts you back to the status of the ap-
plication prior to the July 1 meeting."
The commission then passed on first reading a six-
month moratorium on the construction of cellular
phone towers in the city.
Mayor Bob VanWagoner said the city has been
invited to piggyback with the Town of Longboat Key
on a contract with a consultant on the issue.
Planning Board Commissioner Sue Normand
asked if the planned action to rescind the motion and
the vote to approve the moratorium are in conflict.
"If the motion to approve is seconded and passed,
and later the moratorium is passed [on second reading],
it would create a potential for a conflict," Petruff noted.
"It would prohibit the staff from issuing the building
permit. That puts you in a very dicey situation, to say
the least. That's a decision you're going to have to
make with a reasonable expectation that should that
occur, GTE would probably be moved to litigate."
Mayor Chuck Shumard's proposal for a new city
hall lawn is depicted in a color rendering avail-
able for viewing in his office.
Along with the grass lawn in front of the main en-
trance to city hall, the mayor says plans include a re-
placement memorial to Mary Ross, late city commis-
sioner, in the landscape renovation.
The area of native plants ordered removed included
the nucleus of the garden originated by Ross, a memo-
rial to her donated by artist Woody Candish and .a
winding brick path.
The mayor says the memorial was inadvertently
destroyed by the contractor working on Island Players
A former associate of Ross commented, "1 hope
they don't sink the new memorial plaque to Mary in the
middle of a manicured lawn. She wouldn't like that."
At last weeks commission meeting. Commissioner
Elaine Burkly pressed Shumard on his plan for the area-
fronting city hall, siting a lack of involvement by the
commission in his plans.
"Will you put sod in there?" she asked.
The mayor said "Yes. I have a drawing in my of-
fice of my plan if you want to look at it."
Shumard said he asked the contractor to take Mary
Ross's damaged memorial to the artist and repair it. He
said the bird bath will be put hack as well.
"I'm not taking any more out," Shumard said. "I've
had a request to do that but I'm not. I'll repair the old
sprinkler system that was in there."
3urkly asked if volunteers or the city will take re-
sponsibility for maintaining it [the lawn].
Shumard said the city will mow it. "1 understand
I've destroyed the volunteers but I don't believe it,"

The Island Poet
One night a police officer was staking out a very rowdy bar,
For he knew if folks came out drunk, they would never drive very far.
Just before closing a man came out and stumbled all over the place,
And finally made it to his car before he fell on his face.
Soon everyone left the bar and drove off to their home,
And the officer and the man were left in their cars alone.
Then the officer went to the man and gave him all the tests he could think,
Which only proved the man just never had a drop to drink.
And he said, "I hate to do this officer 'cause you look like a good old boy,
But because I wasn't drinking, they elected me the designated decoy."
We hope you'll join us at the newspaper in wish-
ing Bud Atteridge, longtime Island Poet, a speedy
recovery. Bud, age 95, had breathing problems
which sent him to the hospital on July 18.

If I were a flag, I would represent saving all

It is going to be a sunny day on my flag. It's not

Of two worlds
You can't travel much further apart in time or
culinary desires than we did last week.
Two dining experiences, a picnic in Cortez and
dinner at Biondo's Ristorante in Holmes Beach, con-
verged opposite ends of the spectrum into equal mo-
ments of dining bliss.
First, the picnic. Although several folks com-
mented they didn't know they were invited, the
Cortez Village Historical Society clearly announced
the public was welcome at the 1997 Cortez Natives
and Friends Picnic. All one had to do was bring a
"covered dish" to share.
Share indeed. The varied list of salads, veg-
etables, side dishes and desserts presented an over-
whelming task of sampling.
Luckily, folks like Alcee Taylor were willing to
share big slices of coconut and cherry pie.
Even more lucky, the mullet chef was Blue

THE HIGHS AND LOWS OF ARCH PAIN
Moderation is the key word when it comes to healthy
arches. Too high of an arch, and the feet are likely to ache with
heel and/or arch pain. Calluses often form, as well, due to the
problem of wearing shoes that just can't measure up to the
soaring soles. Too little of an arch or "flat feet" can make
every step an uncomfortable experience as abnormal pressure
presses on the foot. The pain of high or low arches isn't the only
concern, either. Left untreated, both conditions can lead to such
serious problems as bunions, hammertoes, and heel spurs. For-
tunately, prescription orthotics (shoe inserts) are among the op-
tions that can correct arch abnormalities, preventing such com-
Whether your feet suffer from abnormal arches, skin or nail
conditions, you'll find ISLAND PODIATRY is as concerned as
you are about the health of your feet. For an appointment at
either of my full-service foot care facilities, please call: in Anna

Fulford, proudly wearing his new "Kiss the Chef"
apron. A bottomless cooler was kept full of mullet
- and we managed to plunder our share. Deep fried,
golden brown, fresh like it just leapt out of the wa-
ter, crispy and finest kind.
My personal favorite on the buffet was an onion-
rice casserole. I searched for the creator, asked
nearly everyone who made such a delicious dish, and
finally at the very last table on the dock, I found the
cook and she gave me the recipe.
Try it yourself. Just brown a chopped yellow or
white onion (she said Vidalia won't add anything to
it so don't bother spending the money on one) in a
stick of butter in a skillet. Add a cup of uncooked
rice and two cups of canned beef stock and bake.
Mmmm, sweet tasting and simple too. What more
could you ask for?
Maybe some delicious, gourmet Italian fare
could provide the counterpart to all that yummy
Cortez home cooking.
If it's Biondo. it's good.
Turtles, the place where Islanders enjoyed
rcwdy Sunday afternoons with frequent attitude
checks by the D.T.'s and regular nights of depend-
able rock, roll and reggae. has been displaced by
gentle classical music.
The transformation from club to Italian fine din-
ing was brisk and successful. Only the bar remains
the same now a dining counter with a peek
through etched glass at the chef at work.
Susi and Pietro Biondo are gracious hosts, mov-
ing among their guests, assuring excellent service,
getting to know their patrons' desires and answering
to everyone's whims.
I'd heard this restaurant described as "the Italian
Bistro" among friends and gourmands. Any likeness
to Beach Bistro must be considered a serious com-
pliment and we weren't disappointed.
Sure, there's no beach but the cuisine is a great
alternative for fine dining. Briefly, the fresh mozza-
rella was the best we've experienced south of New
York City. Our antipasti (appetizers) also included
frutti de mare, an assortment of marinated seafood
that was such perfection, we yearn to sample it
Biondo's cannelloni was heavenly, thick with
bechamel sauce, cheeses and filled with tasty veal
and spices. Swordfish was properly seared and
served with calamata olives and fresh chopped toma-
toes and basil.
Profiteroles, miniature cream puffs covered with
chocolate, and espresso provided the finishing touch.
Italians say "Mangia," meaning eat.
We say "Biondo."

The officer followed her to the police station so
they could discuss her infraction while her daughter

A pickup truck driven by Walter Tillman, 41, of
Bradenton, approached the barricades and swerved
toward the officer, who had to run from the road to
keep from being hit, he said in the report. The truck
struck the barricades and cones which collapsed on the
patrol car. The driver continued east on Manatee Av-
enue and the officer radioed for help.
Two officers responded and stopped Tillman at the
scene of the causeway accident. They said they could
not conduct field performance evaluations because of

I felt fortunate to get to see Braves pitcher Greg
Maddux, who is probably the best pitcher in baseball
today. He did not disappoint as he pitched a complete-
game, four-hitter. He needed only 78 pitches on the day
with 66 of them being strikes to secure the win.
Maddux was supported by home runs from right-
fielder Michael Tucker, who hit his 10th, and Jose
Baustita, who hit his first of the season.

back behind Andrew Jones' two home runs. The Cubs
won it when Ryne Sandberg's bad-hop grounder got past
Chipper Jones at third to score Shawon Dunston.
On Wednesday, we showed up a bit late but somehow
managed to find seats right on the wall in dead center field.
It was a great day for baseball as the beer was cold, we had
great seats and it wasn't too hot outside.
The Cubs had Kevin Tapani on the mound facing
off against rookie pitcher Kevin Millwood. Tapani
signed a $3.5 million contract with the Cubs in the off
season, then went to the operating room for surgery on
his hand so this was his first game of the season.
Tapani pitched a great game for the Cubs, going
seven innings and allowing only four hits and one run.
He was supported by Sammy Sosa who drove in
Bradenton's own Brian McRae with a double in the
third inning and a two-run home run in the fifth to lead
them to a 3-1 win over the Braves.
With the win, the Cubs won the series two games
to one and that brought their record with Islanders in
attendance to four wins and two losses. With the sea-

Beware the Fourth if you swim
By Bob Ardren
Fourth of July may be a big time for celebration
locally, but it's tough on our approximately 100 resi-
In a study published by Dr. Randy Wells in the July
issue of "Marine Mammal Science." Wells reports that
four local area dolphins have been struck and maimed
by boat propellers. Every case happened over a Fourth
of July weekend.
The first documented injury came in 1983, the lat-
est last year. In each case the back and/or dorsal fin of
the dolphin was slashed with evenly spaced gashes
nearly identical to those seen on manatees struck by
Wells is doing a long-term study on local dolphins.
at Mote Marine Laboratory on behalf of the Chicago
The area's oldest injury case, an 11-year-old male
appropriately named Rip Torn, is a "poster child" for
the Office of Protected Species U.S. National Marine
Fisheries Service poster and brochure. You've prob-
ably seen Rip Tor in local waters with his multi-sliced
dorsal fin. He's certainly the easiest to recognize of the
The theme of the brochure asks boaters to keep
their distance from dolphins encountered in the wild.
Fifty yards is recommended, and that makes sense.
"Let the wild ones stay wild," the brochure pleads.
"Don't feed, swim with or harm wild dolphins."
Night herons about
Clearly it's the time of year for a new generation
of night herons. Last week I saw an immature pair that
sent me dashing for my birding guide and then, only a
day or two later, I spotted a small flock of a half dozen
If you're like me, it took a quick breeze through the
field guide for identification the first time we saw them,
and I don't know if they. were black or yellow crowned,
but immature night herons they were for sure.
Somehow I always feel better about our local en-
vironment seeing another generation of young critters
come along. It's got to be a good sign.
Another reason to test
"It's one of the fastest killers we encounter," said
an infectious disease specialist at Tampa General Hos-
pital last week of an infection picked up by a fisher
wading in Tampa Bay on the Gandy Bridge causeway.
Identified as vibrio vulnificus, the bacteria apparently
entered the man's body through a cut on his leg.
Douglas Holdt, medical director of the
Hillsborough County Health Department, said this was
the third such case in recent months, and although the
fisher is expected to recover, one man died of it in
Pasco County last month.
It's time we got on with beach water testing.
Karen Collins-Fleming of the Manatee County
Environmental Management Department says she's
working closely with the Tampa Bay National Estuary
Program, along with Hillsborough and Pinellas coun-
ties, in developing "what we think is going to be a
pretty good program." It's due to be discussed by the
Manatee County Commission at a workshop Aug. 7 at
Mote boat expands
Folks have so taken to the 45-passenger Miss
Sarasota Explorer boat tours of Sarasota Bay that Mote
Marine is asking the city to let it add a second boat. Just
goes to show what a tourist attraction the bay has be-
Virginia Haley of Mote says the boat tours leave
the Mote docks three times a day and, with all the thun-
derstorms about this time of the year, it's best to call
ahead for the schedule. Price of the one-hour, 45-
minute tour is $28 and that includes admission to all the
attractions at Mote.

Reds really coming into their own right now
By Capt. Mike Heistand
Redfish season is in full swing right now, with the
big, tasty red drum hanging out near the docks and sea-
walls or cruising the seagrass meadows of the bays.
Offshore anglers report good catches of snapper and
redfish, with an occasional barracuda or kingfish. And
silver kings are still moving up and down the beaches
and in the passes.
Joseph at the Rod and Reel Pier said pier fishers
there have been catching mackerel, snapper, some big
redfish and catch-and-release snook.
John at the Anna Maria City Pier said anglers
there are catching some mackerel.
Sue at Miss Cortez Fishing Fleet said four-hour
trips averaged 150 head of Key West grunts and black
sea bass. The six-hour trips averaged 175 head of Key
West grunts, sand perch and black sea bass. The nine-
hour trips averaged 40 head of black grouper, man-
grove snapper and red grouper.

Number One pick for the week, followed by reds,
catch-and-release snook and bluefish. A variety of bait
is working well, including shrimp, small pinfish and
shiners, but expect to bring some of all of 'em because
there's no telling what will work on a given day.
Capt. Dave Pinkham on the Legend says he's find-
ing good red grouper action in about 100 feet of water
over scattered hard bottom in the Gulf. There are also
lots of schooled dolphin hiding under the Sargasso
weed offshore. Look for kingfish and big barracuda
over the artificial reefs in about 85 feet of water, too.
Carl at Perico Island Bait & Tackle said wade
fishers have been picking up a few trout on the flats and
doing very well with redfish. By the way, Carl says
redfish are starting to school.
Capt. Rick Gross reports plenty of redfish are
making his charters happy, plus a few catch-and-re-
