Trolley system


proposed for


Island again
By Paul Roat
Another Island bus trolley system, this one publicly
funded, is being proposed again.
Members of the Island Transportation Planning
Organization heard presentations and were effusive in
their enthusiasm for an Island trolley system running
from Anna Maria to Coquina Beach.
If approved by the three Island cities, the Manatee
County Commission and the Florida Department of
Transportation, the trolley system could be operational
in July 1999, transportation experts agreed Monday.
The proposed public trolley system would include
five partly open vehicles, operating from 6:30 a.m. to
11 p.m. seven days a week. The trolleys would be
partly open-air and partly air-conditioned. Cost to ride
the trolley would be 50 cents.
Director of Manatee County Community Services
Department Fred Loveland said the five trolleys would
cost about $230,000 each. Adding 10 Island bus shel-
ters at $12,000 each would bring total capital costs to
$1.27 million.
Annual operating costs are estimated at between
$500,000 and $600,000. Loveland said he hoped a
DOT grant would provide funding for the trolley pur-
chase and provide half the operating costs for the first
five years of the trolley operation.
"I believe if the county and cities came together
and went to the DOT, we could present a united front
and I believe the DOT could find the funding,"
Loveland said.
However, DOT's Jan Parham said funds that were
available for this type of program are being taken by
other "emerging bus systems. Winter Haven is apply-
ing for funds, and I've been told it is possible that the
money you are looking for is not available."
A similar trolley, running from Anna Maria to Lido
Key in Sarasota, was proposed in 1994. Funding was
approved for the system by DOT, but the grant was
rejected by county commissioners partly due to viru-

lent opposition by Longboat Key, which objected to the
"toonerville trolley" going back and forth on the key.
Trolley Systems of America then entered the road-
way system and currently operates a series of trolleys
running from their base on Siesta Key to the Island, the
mainland and elsewhere.
"I guess it would compete with the current trolley,"
Loveland said of the proposed public trolley system
and Trolley Systems of America.


Now THAT


is a boat
A Dutch-built motor yacht with rumored ties to
computer wiz multi-billionaire Bill Gates cruised the
Gulf of Mexico off the Island earlier this week.
Ownership of the Meduse, a 199-foot three-
deck white yacht, is unknown, but Coast Guard of-
ficials said they heard it was operated by an assis-
tant of Gates, the chief executive officer of
Microsoft and the wealthiest man in the world.
according to Fortune Magazine.
Consultants with the construction, Patton Marine
out of Miami, said an American ordered the boat built
for himself. It is not for sale, Patton representatives
said, adding it cost in excess of $50 million to build.
According to http://www.meduse.com, the
ship's home page, the yacht is a Feadship, one of the
top-end private ships in the world. Naval architect is
internationally renowned designer F. de Voogt of the
Netherlands, where the ship was built. The steel-
hulled boat was launched last year from the Nether-
lands, and hails from Georgetown, Cayman Islands.
With its 35,861-gallon fuel tanks, the twin
Caterpiller 1,580 hp engines have a cruising range
of 5,400 nautical miles while traveling at 16 knots.
That distance translates into about a non-stop
cruise from Quebec to Rio de Janeiro.
The Meduse features a tender, an on-board de-
compression chamber and a helicopter.
There is no word on why the yacht was here
or when it is sailing off into the sunset.

Loyeland credited Manatee County Commissioner
Joe McClash for much of the work involved in putting
the proposal together.
Islanders have been seeking a means to alleviate the
traffic congestion problems on the Island for several years.
Traffic tie-ups last season reached a near critical mass as
far as Island elected officials were concerned, and they
began to lobby regional transportation planners to come
up with some means to get the cars off Gulf Drive.


Anna Maria also

says 'NO' to cop

takeover
By J. C. Higgins
Islander Correspondent
Anna Maria commissioners have instructed Mayor
Chuck Shumard to send Holmes Beach a "thanks but
no thanks" letter, following Bradenton Beach's ex-
ample last week in turning down a proposed takeover
of Island police services by Holmes Beach .
"We have learned that the costs of the police de-
partmenl are not controllable for us unless the services
are subleased from the county," said Commissioner

Fire district passes 1997-98 budget; up 5.5 percent


By Pat Copeland
Islander Reporter
The Anna Maria Fire Commission last week unani-
mously passed its $1.65 million budget for the 1997-
98 fiscal year.
The budget reflects a 5.5 percent increase in assess-
ments over last year. It also includes a 3.3 percent in-
crease in the cost of living and 2.2 percent salary ad-
justment.
On the income side, tax receipts are up $61,000
*with the total of taxes and fees at $1,178,000, up from
$1,117,500. Interest income is $28,700, up from
$25,700 and reimbursement income is $20,300, up
from $19,300. Other income, which includes a
$425,000 addition to reserves, is $430,000, up from
$4,500.
According to Mary Stephens, the fire district's
administrative secretary, the reserve line item is not
new but Florida statute now requires that it be shown
in the budget.
On the expenses side, wages and benefits are
$774,137, up from $762,598; maintenance is $30,200,. up
from $28,200; insurance is $108,000, down from
$109,500; training is $22,000, up from $18,000; office
expenses are $8,750, up from $7,750; supplies are $7,000,
up from $6,500; utilities are $33,000, down from $34,000;
fire prevention is $2,500, up from $1,500; and capital
expenditures are $44,500, up from $42,500.
Special services show a $25,000 addition for the
interlocal agreement with the Westside Fire District for a
total of $88,420, up from $61,090. The debt service re-
mains the same at $75,000. Miscellaneous reflects the
$425,000 addition to the reserves and an $18,000 addition
in liability for a total of $463,493, up from $20,362. In the
restricted fund are $7,500 for emergency repairs, $32,000


for communications (purchasing 800 MhZ radios, repro-
gramming radios and the like) and $35,500 in liability.
Stephens said the liability line items, as in the re-
serve line item, are not new but were not shown in past

School board exempt from local permits, says manager


By Pat Copeland
Islander Reporter
According to the school board's facilities manager,
Holmes Beach commissioners have no jurisdiction
over a 100-foot tower on Anna Maria Elementary
School property.
Questions about the school tower were raised during
discussions about the proposed cellular phone tower.
Commissioners learned that the school tower was not per-
mitted or approved by the city's building official and
asked City Attorney Patricia Petruff to investigate.
Petruff wrote the school board and received a re-
ply from Michael Mendley, facilities, sites and plan-
ning manager. Mendley said the tower is used exclu-
sively for school board purposes and according to
Florida statute, the school board is exempt from local
permits.
"This is the position they take with all local gov-
ernments," Petruff explained. "Whether or not it is
correct, it has worked for them. Their position is that


their construction standards are in a separate code in the
Florida statute and they can do renovations or construc-
tion on existing school sites."
According to Mendley, key points in the statute
are:
Existing schools are deemed consistent with the
local comprehensive plan.
Local governing bodies can only impose condi-
tions on expansion to existing schools when a school
board submits an application.
Applications for local approval are not.required
for portable classrooms and'renovation or construction
on an existing school site that does not change its pri-
mary use or increase student capacity by five percent.
"Unless the commission really feels strongly about
this, I don't know that you should go much further,"
Petruff advised. "If you disagree, you can ask them,
politely, to come and get an after-the-fact permit."
Petruff said the building official would have to
process the application to see if it fits the standards and


One more dock destined

for Bradenton Beach


By Paul Roat
Another "public-private" dock appears to be
in the works in Bradenton Beach.
John Chappie, stepping aside as commis-
sioner to represent a group of his neighbors on
12th Street South, has requested permission from
the commission to have a dock built at the
bayfront end of that street.
The dock would be a city dock, built at resi-
dent expense, with the city picking up the liabil-
ity insurance tab, Chappie said. Resident cost for
having a licensed dock builder do the construc-
tion is estimated at $3,100.
Similar docks with the same conditions have
been built at Seventh and Eighth Streets South.
Liability insurance will be included in the
city's blanket coverage, provided by the Florida


League of Cities.
On July 4, David Allen Monteith, 36, of
Holmes Beach, 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 water. Police and emergency medical person-
nel responded to the call, jumping into the water
to hold Monteith's face above the surface until
paramedics arrived.
He was stabilized and transported to Colum-
bia Blake Medical Center, where it was deter-
mined he suffered a C-4 fracture in his neck.
Monteith was paralyzed as a result of his injuries.
The dock from which Monteith jumped was
rebuilt by residents several months ago and is an-
other "public-private" structure that falls under the
city's insurance plan and is open for public use.


Fire district to hold MDA boot drive this weekend

criteria in the city's code. Then the commission would
have to hold a public hearing and approve or reject it.
"My guess is that the school board would take is-
sue with that, and we could be in some type of litiga-
tion with a judge telling us what construction on an
existing site means," Petruff said. "Before they would
come and subject themselves to a special permit pro-
cess, I think they would ask for a declaratory statement
from a judge or try some other approach."
She said if the school board submits to the permit
process in Holmes Beach, it would have to do so in
every city.
"It appears to me that the school board in the past
has been somewhat reluctant to comply fully with lo-
cal jurisdictions' building requirements and standards,"
she concluded.
"As long as they don't increase the capacity of the
school by more than five percent, they can do whatever
they wish," Commissioner Luke Courtney noted. "They
could build a six-story structure on that property."
"As long as it complies with state construction
standards for educational facilities," Petruff added.

Robert McElheny. "We are not in the police business."
During the Anna Maria discussion it was generally
agreed that the current year actual cost, and the cost
budgeted for year 1997-98, appear to be a cost effec-
tive solution to the needs of Anna Maria.
"The sheriff's deputies are out patrolling our streets
and communicating on a one-on-one basis with our
citizens, showing that they want to be involved in our
well-being," Mayor Chuck Shumard said.
"I felt that the letters to Bradenton Beach and Anna
Maria were carefully worded, and it was clear that we
just wanted to have a meeting with the interested par-
ties to share ideas," Holmes Beach Mayor Bob
VanWagner said.
"We were looking for operational input, and did
not intend for our inquiries to be construed as any more
than that," he continued. "To contend that we are at-
tempting to bail out of a monetary crisis is not the
case."

Could Privateer float return to Island?


By Jim Hanson -
Islander Correspondent
New officers now in place, the Privateers are
"ready and willing" to meet with the Holmes Beach
Commission to see whether the beleaguered boat float
may return "home" or stay in Cortez.
New President Rick Maddox said this week the long-
time Island civic organization had not yet heard from the
commission but "we're willing to discuss the problem.
"Just let us know."
Commission Chair Don Maloney at a work session
early this month said "we will hear them at another
work session" after new officers were seated.
The controversy arose when the boat float, feature
of virtually every Island parade in the past 20 years,
was forced out of its storage spot, a vacant lot at Clark
Lane and Clark Drive, Maddox recalled.
The area's developer, the late Morton Clark, gave
the Privateers the use of the undersized lot for the float,
said Maddox, and it stayed there for 20 years. Last year,
Holmes Beach Mayor Bob VanWagoner wrote the
lot's current owner, Clark's estate, that parking the
float there would result in a fine if it weren't moved.
The Privateers moved it to Cortez, where it remains
on Maddox' property.
The city commission talked of legalizing the park-


ing of the float on the Clark property, but took no ac-
tion.
At the work session Commissioner Carol
Whitmore said, "They (Privateers) now commit half of
their donations each year to Cortez kids, we've lost half
of their donations."
The Privateers traditionally have given $10,000 to
$15,000 a year to the Anna Maria Island Community
Center, plus at least three college scholarships for Is-
land youngsters.
VanWagoner assured the commission that "the
owner was disturbed. He wanted them out."
"Is that documented?" Whitmore retorted. "I'd like
to see the documents."
"I'd like to see the Privateers back," Commissioner
Pat Geyer interjected. "And I think they'll be here."
Maddox took over the presidency of the Privateers
Aug. 1. He described the organization as "the blue-
collar brother of the Conquistador crewes" of the
Tampa Bay area.
Unlike other crewes, which lean more to socializ-
ing, the Island group has evolved into a civic service
organization devoted to good works on the Island along
with members' enjoyment.
It was formed by seven men in the early 1960s,
Maddox said, and incorporated in 1971.

Landscape at city hall
under scrutiny
Officials in Bradenton Beach will "get down on the
grounds" of city hall Tuesday, Aug. 26 in the wake of citi-
zen comments about the proposed landscaping plans there.
Five recent graduates of the Master Gardener pro-
gram have questioned the use of non-native plants in
the city hall landscaping proposal. Commissioners
agreed to a special workshop to discuss the matter.
The workshop will begin at 6 p.m. either in city hall
or the Tingley Memorial Library, 111 Second St. N.

Holmes Beach city hall complex to go out to bid


By Pat Copeland
Islander Reporter
By this time next year, Holmes Beach employees and
elected officials hope to be working in a new city complex.
Commissioners plan to put the project out to bid this
week. Ads will run for three to four weeks and bids will
take equally as long. A construction cost estimate is ex-
pected by Oct. 1.
Architect H. Patterson Fletcher presented commis-
sioners with two construction estimates. The only differ-
ence is whether the roof will be fiberglass shingles or
metal. Estimates include:
Site work, modify existing parking lot, new parking
lot, engineered site drainage landscaping and irrigation -
$195,641.
Building construction $981,660 (shingle roof) or
$1,013,660 (metal roof)
Construction expenses, general conditions, contrac-
tor fee and bond and insurance $189,018.
The total with a shingle roof is $1,366,319. The total
with a metal roof is $1,398,319. Fletcher said a shingle


roof is better for lightning protection but a metal roof will
last longer.
Fletcher told commissioners that the construction
budget has increased by $159,593 since September 1996
due to several factors.
Current market inflation, $60,000 The construc-
tion market is in a period of expansion following an ex-
tended period of low construction volume, Fletcher ex-
plained. During the depressed market phase, the number
of trades persons and general contractors was reduced
while material prices remained static.
"The natural market dynamic coming out of a such a
period is that there is less capacity in the local construc-
tion market to absorb the influx of new work and conse-
quently, we are now operating in an inflation/escalation
market," he said.
Engineered site drainage, $26,390 The Southwest
Florida Water Management District requires engineering
for on-site storm drainage, which includes several reten-
tion ponds. The engineering has been completed by Zollar,
Najjar and Shroyer, Inc., and approved by Swiftmud.
Program expansion, $28,203 The enclosed ga-
rage was expanded to accommodate the police boat, per-
sonal watercraft and all-terrain vehicle.
Furnishings, $20,000 Built-in seating, as required
by fire code, was added to costs for the commission cham-
ber.
Emergency generator. $25,000 The police
department's generator must be replaced.
Other costs the commission must consider are fur-
nishings and equipment, impact fees, construction and soil
testing and reports, builder's risk insurance, financing
costs and lightning protection.

Commissioners' comments
Commissioner Luke Courtney said the master plan
shows a soccer field in the area behind the present city hall.
"The idea was not for a dedicated soccer field, but a
multi-purpose field to be used by art groups. the Privateers
and others," he said. "Hopefully, at some time, we can

level it and put in Bermuda grass and irrigation, but we
don't want to dedicate the field just to soccer."
Mayor Bob VanWagoner agreed and said he also
wants to keep the field free for family use.
"We've got a public works building that isn't very old
and was remodeled into offices within the last year," Com-
missioner Ron Robinson said. "It looks more than ad-
equate to carry on the functions of public works. Why are
we spending the money to move those people into the new
building?"
"The concept is to put all departments in one build-
ing," VanWagoner explained. "There's much to be
gained in not having to run back and forth (between
buildings)."
Robinson also questioned the necessity for a four-car
police garage and two extra offices.
VanWagoner said the extra office in the police depart-
ment was to be used by the code enforcement officer who
has been transferred back to the public works department.
He said the extra offices could be used by the police or for
a city planner.
"We foresee the day when this city may need some
extra space," he continued. "That building was structured
on the total amount of square footage we thought we'd
need to operate all the departments in the city. Nothing has
changed. We've not added anything."
VanWagoner said protecting the police vehicles in a
garage will save money and increase performance.
"What problem do we have with the vehicles today
that's due to them sitting out in the weather?" Robinson
asked. "Today we are functioning with public works in a
separate building: Specifically, what problems is that caus-
ing us?"
"It was remodeled to allow the department to function
as in interim measure," VanWagoner replied. "It will not
be abandoned. It will be used by the maintenance foreman
and workers after the new building is complete."
Commissioner Pat Geyer noted that if the building
had been built when discussions started in 1988, the city
could have saved a lot of money. She said she has no prob-
lem with the plans.
Commissioner Carol Whitmore was opposed to the
police garage and said the vehicles should be parked
where they are now.

Plan ahead for hurricane season
"We won't pull you, kicking and screaming, from
your home. But we will worry about you until we find
your remains and notify your next of kin if you stay on the
Island during a hurricane."
Those no-holds-barred words are from Karen
Windon, chief of Emergency Management Division of
Manatee County. She and several other officials addressed
about 100 Islanders last Thursday at a hurricane forum
sponsored by the City of Anna Maria.
Manatee County officials estimate a Category 4
storm, with up to 155 mph winds, would cause $4 billion
in damage to the county. More than 30,000 homes would
be destroyed, 17 people estimated killed by the storm, and
it would be at least six weeks before water and other utili-
ties could be restored.
Windon said now is the time to prepare a disaster
survival kit. Included in the.kit should be any prescription
drugs you may need, insurance and other important pa-
pers, photographs you will want to take with you and any-
thing else of value in your home.
Although Mike Smith, director of emergency services
for the American Red Cross, said no one would be turned
away from a evacuation shelter, space will be tight and
conditions primitive. He advised finding a friend or fam-
ily member who lives well inland and. making plans now
to stay with them during a hurricane.
"Hey, they probably come out to your house on the
beach in the summer," Windon said of those east-county
friends. "Let them know now that you'd like them to re-
turn the favor. If a storm hits, spending two or three or four
weeks sleeping on a gym floor in a shelter isn't my idea
of a good time."
"If a bad storm comes, your home may be totally
destroyed," McClash said. "You won't have any insurance
papers, bank records, pictures. Your car may be destroyed,
and you won't have any transportation, and you can't
count on government to be able to help right away."
If damage is extensive, Smith said, "it may be a week
or more before you can even come back onto the Island
to see if your house is still here."
And, to add to the doom and gloom, Windon pointed
out that last Sunday was the five-year anniversary of Hur-
ricane Andrew, the most costly of any hurricane to hit the
United States at $20 billion in damages.
It's inane to merely say that a hurricane that may hit
the Island would be a really bad thing. Anyone who wants
a graphic peek at a hurricane's damage should read "Con-
dominium" by John D. McDonald. The only problem
with the book is it's a little too graphic.
Don't stay on the Island if a strom threatens. Leave
early, avoid being a statistic and keep Karen Windon from
having to worry about you.

Iej Y OU OPINION


Get the facts on police
consolidation, says citizen
I guess I shouldn't have been surprised by the re-
sponse of the Bradenton Beach police to the proposal
by Holmes Beach that the police departments merge.
What The Islander Bystander reported some weeks
ago, re: this issue, is still true. There are so many people
out there with big egos who are guarding their own
little piece of the pie that they won't look at, address
or even consider the possibilities for good that might
come from merging any of our expensive Island ser-
vices. Someone is so afraid that their power might be
shared or event disappear!
As an Anna Maria citizen, I would very much like
to look at my little city being policed by a local force.
But I think the reaction will be the same from Anna
Maria officials, too afraid to consider the possibilities,
lest someone's power be taken away or diluted.
When are these elected officials going to stop play-
ing political games and start making decisions that are
for the betterment of their constituency and not about
their own "big fish in a small pond" mentality?
At least if the proposal could be looked at, evalu-
ated and discussed, then wouldn't' we know with cer-
tainty and rationally if it would be better or not? What's
the Bradenton Beach police chief going to say, "Yea,
they can do a better job. I'll probably lose mine, but
let's do what's good for the citizens." Maybe, but 1
don't think so.
Like my daddy used to tell me, "Don't make judg-
ments until you have all the facts." I don't see where
Bradenton Beach has any. Take a look! It's like
chicken soup. It can't hurt.
As for my two cents, Anna Maria, let's take them
up on their offer and look into the matter ourselves for
Anna Maria with Bradenton Beach and Holmes
Beach. We could do a lot better than the sheriff's of-
fice castoffs.
John Jencks, Anna Maria City

Wrong Dave White
To all my friends and patrons of the Surfside Cafe,
I just wanted to let you all know that it was not I who
was busted for the purchase of crack cocaine and never
will be.


To those of you who know better, thanks. To those
of you who had doubt sorry.
David White, Holmes Beach

Resident doesn't 'get'
new seal defense
After spending an undoubtedly inappropriate amount
of time reading and re-reading Mr. Henkel's comments on
the selection of Bradenton Beach's new seal, I can only
conclude it was meant as a satirical piece.
I still don't get it.
Geoffrey Kendrick, Bradenton Beach

Cop consolidation good idea
I think that Mayor VanWagoner should be con-
gratulated for taking the lead in asking for a study as
to the benefits of consolidating the three government
bodies into one.
I have been a resident and property owner in all
three communities for almost 30 years and do realize
that all three have individual characteristics, but that
was yesterday.
The duplication of services is costly and ineffi-
cient. 1 also believe that for those serving in govern-
ment it would be a more attractive situation from a
compensation and opportunity standpoint it would
attract more quality people.
Let's look to the future and move ahead on this
issue; small communities today have a tough road in
keeping up with higher governing bodies, and are of-
ten forced into annexation by larger towns 1 don't
think we want that.
E.J. Mullins, Holmes Beach

Grateful citizen says thanks
Thank you Holmes Beach Police and Anna Maria
Fire District!
I wonder if anyone has had to call for assistance more
times than I have over the past few years. Your excellent
and immediate response has made me very grateful.
My daughters, who live 1,000 miles away, and I
thank each and everyone of you for giving us the secure
feeling we now have in my little business venture on
this w\arm and caring Island.

THOSE WERE THE BAYS

Mitch Davis and the jail he built in 1927 when he was finishing up his five
years as Anna Maria's first mayor.

RELIC OF THE PAST


Over the years countless tourists have
stopped their cars on Pine Avenue to have
their pictures taken standing in the door-
way of the old Anna Maria City Jail.
Postcards featuring the roofless
little building have been mailed all over
the country. It has appeared in Ripley's
"Believe It Or Not" column and the
"Keeping Posted" department of The
Saturday Evening Post when it was in
its heyday. The late Island author Wyatt
Blassingame, who wrote many an ar-
ticle for the old Post, sent the item in
and it attracted a lot of attention.
The jail that was to become a symbol
of Anna Maria Island was built by Anna
Maria City's first mayor, Mitch Davis, in
1927. Mitch told its story to an Islander
newspaper reporter in 1968 two years
before his death at the age of 85.
Mitch exploded the myth that the
jail only had but two occupants, suppos-
edly Chinese aliens smuggled in from
Cuba and nearly bitten to death by the
fierce Island mosquitoes. The truth is,
Mitch said, it had a number of guests
during the Roaring Twenties when flap-
pers and their boyfriends would come to
dance and drink the night away at the
Anna Maria beach pavilion (where the
town was founded in 1923).
"Most of the offenses were just
plain drunkenness, disturbing the peace
and threatening property, life and limb
as the liquor robbed them of their
senses," Mitch said. "We had to have
some place to put them to cool off until
their cases came up. It was good pre-
ventive medicine. After we had put a
dozen or two offenders behind bars,
why, most of the trouble stopped."
The little building had thick walls


made of tabby (blocks made with shell
mixed with mud). It had toilets, a
washbasin and septic tank that the city
got for free when Fort Dade on
Egmont Key was dismantled. And
Mitch put three feet of concrete under-
neath the floor "to be sure nobody
could tunnel their way out of there."
"There was a time," Mitch re-
called, "we had to confine overnight a
big strong drunken fellow. With his
bare hands he bent two bars apart, but
not wide enough so he could escape.
The way the bars were designed, they
were close enough together that es-
cape was impossible unless the bars
were sawn through."
During the Depression years,
when drinkers and speeders "ran out
of gas" so to speak, there was no
longer a need for the jail. In the 1940s,
the roof went up in smoke one day
when there was a high wind and no
fire equipment.
It was Harry Varley, the founder
and long-time editor of The Islander
newspaper, who in the 1950s got the
idea of using the burnt-out hulk as a
tourist attraction. He convinced the
city commissioners to leave it stand-
ing and penned the bit of doggerel that
made the old building famous.
Varley's rhyme is not quite accu-
rate. There are still bars on a window
at the rear of the old jail a relic of
a bygone era on an island "Where Life
Is Peaceful...and Fishing Is Good," to
quote the motto Varley used to run on
the front page of his paper. Not as true
nowadays as it once was.
Next Week: A spy for Uncle
Sam.


The day the jail
burned. The
founder of the old
Islander newspa-
per had the idea of
Preserving the
roofless building
as a tourist attrac-
tion.

'The Jungal Book' a must for Islanders


By Joy Courtney
Islander Correspondent
Children of all ages should grab their safari hats and
join the excitement generated by the Island children per-
forming in the Chapel Players' summer presentation of
"The Jungal Book" by Edward Mast and the odd spell-
ing of "jungle" is his way of avoiding legal entanglements
with another jungle book by Kipling.
The chapel's stage screams like a macaw of wild
jungal activity. The action centers around Mowgli the
man club, played as sharp as a native's drum by Elliott
Artim, age 9.
Will Mowgli make it to manhood as he grows
among furry and feathered friends and foes? What les-
sons of the jungal will he take with him if he ever lives
among humans?
Sherakhan the Tiger, played in the best spirit of a
villain by Michael Maietta, age 13, doesn't care the
only thing he wants is a "Mowgli Meal." The wolf
pack, played to a snarl by adult Candace Lynn Artim
and young Lindsey Smith and Kellie Spring, do all they
can for the man cub with jungal citizens Perchy the
Monkey, made perky by Samantha Maietta, age 9;
Haithi the Elephant, made as big as the mammal's ears
by Derek Smith, age 9; and Kaa Snake, played so
slinky by young Evan Lewis. Vulture and hyena,
played Chuck Carter, age 9, offers a good laugh as
hyena and gets his meat out of the part of vulture.
Director Jim Lewis as Baloo the Bear keeps the
show running smoothly as he shares the wisdom of the
jungal and keeps all in tow under "jungal law." And in
the background, as strong as the quiet steel of a feline's
-~~~~~ ~ ---- b
walk, is Bagheera the Panther, played to the compli-
ment any cat by Jacquelyn Carter, age 12.
The costumes made and designed by moms Susan
Lewis and Debbie Carter go beyond what is expected
in children's theater, as are the lighting and sound ef-

Surfing World will return post fire, insurance limbo


By Jim Hanson
Islander Correspondent
After two months in "insurance limbo," Surfing
World of Cortez probably will need another six months
for full recovery from its fire.
Jane Von Hahmann, who with her husband Rocky
owns the store on Cortez Road, said they expect to re-
open in February if all goes well.
It hasn't gone all that well up to now.
The Von Hahmanns were one day into a motor
home vacation when they got word from her parents in
Orlando that their business had been destroyed by fire
June 11. They rushed home, or tried to their vehicle
broke down and the two-hour drive took them 12.
They found their entire inventory destroyed and the
building gutted, with only the cinder block shell stand-
ing. Anna Maria Fire District and insurance company
investigators concluded the fire had started in a
counter, probably in its fluorescent lighting fixture, Ms.
Von Hahmann said.
They added that the fire itself lasted only 15 to 17
minutes. The family's living quarters behind the store
were spared, as was Tyler's Ice Cream Shop which
shares the mini-strip mall.
Damage to the building was several hundred thou-
sand dollars, Von Hahmann said, and the inventory was
worth nearly $100,000. It included many kinds of surf-
ing equipment plus the swimwear, T-shirts and other
clothing that made up much of the store's trade.
Now in a "paper nightmare, an insurance limbo,"
the Von Hahmanns are trying to determine what it will

778-2711


By J.C. Higgins
Islander Correspondent
Anna Maria commissioners have decided to re-
pair rather than construct from scratch a boardwalk in
the city, opting out of applying for a $50,000 state
grant to do nature trail work at the Gulf between Wil-
low and Oak streets.
Deciding not to pursue the grant as a result of a
lack of citizen support, commissioners last week de-
cided to do the repair work on the sidewalk out of city
revenues. Plans now call for repairing the crumbling
sidewalk.
Not to be confused with the $500,000 Commu-
nity Development Block Grant which seems immi-

Holmes Beach may
increase building permit
fees
Holmes Beach Building Official Joe Duennes has
proposed an increase in the city's building permit fees
in keeping with increases proposed in Anna Maria and
adopted in Bradenton Beach.
The present fee in Holmes Beach is $30 for the
permit plus 19 cents per square foot. Duennes has
proposed a permit fee of $50 plus $18 per$ 1,000 of
construction over $1,000.
Duennes estimated the increase will generate an
additional $64,859 in revenue. The last fiscal year's
income from building permit fees was $32.059.
The proposal has not been discussed by the com-
mission, which must approve the increase.


Anna Maria City Hall flora
plantings expected soon;
memorial, too
According to Anna Maria Mayor Chuck
Shumard, city hall landscaping plans will be mov-
ing along very soon.
"We were stopped until the drywalling was in
at the Island Players," Shumard said. "That is be-
ing done this week. Then the dumpster will be
loaded and removed, and we can reactivate the
sprinkler system. The whole project should be
completed by mid-September."
Since the original Mary Ross wrought-iron me-
morial plaque was destroyed by an errant payload
operator, Shumard has contracted Woody Candish
to sculpt another appropriate piece, which will ac-
company the bench already made. It will be placed
in a xeriscaped area.
While leaving some area with natural habitat,
Shumard's plans still include sodding the area di-
rectly in front of city hall to produce a manicured
lawn.
"I am thinking either Bermuda or St. August-
ine grass," he said.
An ad hoc recreation committee has been
named and is assisting in determining the city park
location of the memorial in memory of late Com-
missioner Ross.
Committee members are Carolyn Hale.
Carolyn Pepka and Gary Trudelle, with Shumard
acting as commission liaison.


Apply to participate in
Fine Arts Festival
Applications are available for fine artists and
crafters to participate in the Ninth Annual Anna
Maria Island Winterfest of Fine Arts and Crafts,
sponsored by the Anna Maria Art League.
The festival will be held on Saturday and Sun-
day, Dec. 6 and 7, at City Hall Park in Holmes
Beach.
Entrants will be selected from slides of recent,
original work based on artistic merit and workman-
ship.
To receive an application, send a request along
with a self-addressed and stamped envelope to:
Anna Maria Island Art League, 5312 Holmes
Blvd., Holmes Beach, Fla. 34217.
Completed applications must be returned by
Sept. 30.
For further information, call 778-2099.


pursue the Florida Recreational Development Assis-
tance Grant for the nature trail.
The grant originally was proposed by Betty Jordan,
a grant writer from Orange Park who successfully en-
gineered the big revitalization grant for the Spring,
Rose and Hardin street area of the city.
Mayor Chuck Shumard will notify Jordan of the
commission's decision not to apply for the funding,
with the 1997-98 budget now calling for funds to im-
prove the existing sidewalk there.
Shumard has appointed a recreation committee
composed of Carolyn Hale, Carolyn Pepka and Gary
Trudelle, with Shumard acting as commission liai-
son, to give advice in such matters as the proposed
trail.

... and Anna Maria, too
Building permit fees have tentatively been set by
the Anna Maria Commission at $19 for every $1,000
of construction charge, with a $50 permit application
charge.
This is up $1 from the previously discussed fee of
$18. Commissioners have said the increase is needed
to bring Anna Maria charges in line with Bradenton
Beach, Holmes Beach and Longboat Key.
The 217 percent increase above the current $6 fee
has been slated by commissioners as merely "catching
up to our neighbors," since the last increase was in
1992. according to Building Official Phil Charnock.
An ordinance must be passed to effect this fee in-
crease. Two readings will be scheduled to accomplish this,
the first tentatively set for the first meeting of the commis-
sion in September, the second later in the month.


Honored artist
Rachel Ellis Kaufman was honored at the Anna
Maria Art League recently with a one-woman show
and opening reception. The show and sale of her
work continues at the league, 5312 Holmes Blvd.,

Kaufmnan's relocation to Cape Cod, Mass. Pictured

'Sievemobile' gone in
Bradenton Beach
The "sievemobile" is no longer in Bradenton
Beach, replaced by a.new Chevrolet Astro van.
The "sievemobile" was a 1987 Ford Bronco four-
wheel-drive vehicle used by Building Official Bill Sand-
ers. The vehicle got its name after a city garbage truck
backed into it while parked by city hall and mangled the
passenger side. After the mishap, Sanders said the Bronco
was driveable but "it leaked like a sieve."
Commissioners approved a new vehicle for Sand-
ers, and he took delivery of the white van last week.
Cost of the new vehicle was $17,658.

Holmes Beach setback change in the works


The Holmes Beach Commission recently in-
structed its attorney to draft an ordinance to change
setbacks for two-story single-family structures.
Commissioner Ron Robinson made the request last
month on behalf of a resident. Setbacks for a one-story
structure are 10 feet but setbacks for a two-story struc-
ture are 15 feet. Robinson requested that the setbacks
for two-story structures be 10 feet for the first floor and
15 feet for the second floor.
"I personally favor this," said Building Official Joe
Duennes.
City Attorney Patricia Petruff pointed out that any
property owner can request a variance of up to 20 per-
cent. If the setbacks are 10 feet and 15 feet, they could


be reduced to 12 feet and eight feet with a variance.
Variance requests must be made to the city's
board of adjustment. According to code, the board
must conclude "that strict enforcement of the ordi-
nance would result in practical difficulties or unnec-
essary hardships for the applicant and that, by grant-
ing the variance, the spirit of the ordinance will be
observed, public safety and welfare secured and sub-
stantial justice done."
The applicant must also meet each of six of condi-
tions for the variance.
Building Inspector Bill Saunders said a 50-foot by
100-foot lot would not be a hardship by virtue of its
size because it is a buildable lot.

The Island Poet
Man has been inventive from the day of his birth,
And has even invented a missile that can destroy the Earth.
He has the airplane, the car and all those gadgets at home,
And can even talk from any place with a cordless phone.
He put a man on the moon, his best bet by far,
Even carried his transportation and went around in a car.
He's gone under the ice cap to the poles and back,
But why can't he fix a zipper once it gets out of whack?

More artsy
Used to be art groups on Anna Maria were compet-
ing for our attention. Then it appeared there was
enough interest to go around for everyone. Finally, we
appear to have reached accord. As my kids learned
from watching characters on Sesame Street, how do
you spell c-o-o-p-e-r-a-t-i-o-n?
What began in Bradenton Beach with little quirky
themed art shows with fun openings as much an excuse
for a party as anything was the brainchild of artist Ines
Norman. Her events were a springboard for a bigger af-
fair held recently in cooperation by the Artists Guild of
Anna Maria Island and the Island Art League.
A co-sponsored show? Who'd a thunk it.
But more than 75 fanciful entries accounted for
more than 100 partygoers at the opening reception for
"Shoe Tree Show."
Here, for your enjoyment, are some entries and the
winner of the spoof on art spurred by one of life's
sometime necessities, shoes.

... and speaking of shoes
I think of myself as a champion shopper, no mat-
ter what the mission. I can find it. But regardless what
my needs may be, I always migrate to the shoe depart-
ment. And I already have too many shoes. Way too
many.
I think it comes from watching television commer-
cials (another weakness) since an early age. I remem-
ber more commercials than I do shows. Welch's grape
juice was a favorite. I loved those little grape juice
bottles.
Ipana toothpaste had a cute beaver singing,
"brusha, brusha, brusha, with the new Ipana."
But the best was Buster Brown shoes with the little
boy and the boxer dog. "Hi. I'm Spike. I live in a shoe.
Here's my dog Tyke. He lives here too."


1997 Golden Shoe Award winner
"Shoc-be-do-wah 'by Island artist Bob JolInston
A round label in the heel had a picture of them both
and I craved it. I also liked standing on the X-ray ma-
chine. That was cool but is likely the cause of any foot
problems experienced my generation of shoe-buyers.
You stood on this box with your feet tucked in a com-
partment and an X-ray of your feet appeared in a win-
dow. Poof. Perfect shoe size.
Buster Brown shoes were my favorite but the styles
were limited when I was a kid. Thankfully, saddle
shoes were popular for a long time.
And here's a shopping tip for any of you with a
shoe fetish: Shoes are only $1 at the bowling alley.

Score more
The O'Connor brothers have thrown out the annual
challenge to out-bowl them on Saturday, Aug. 23. Tro-
phies and prizes await the winners and gutter queen and
king after the tournament. Sign-up is at D.Coy Ducks


in the Island Shopping Center 5:30-7:30 p.m. Come
alone and match up with other players at Ducks or
bring your own team.
Then it's on to Galaxy Lanes on Cortez Road for
the bowling. Bowl. Beer. Bowl. Beer. You know how
well those O'Connors can play the game. You can also
bowl for chances on a special lane to win a 27-inch TV.
Oh boy.
Then it's on to the Beach House Restaurant in
Bradenton Beach for the after-bowl party, awards and
more fun.
I can't wait to try on the shoes.

... and speaking of feet
Friday is the deadline for advertising in The Is-
lander Bystander's annual football contest. The games
begin next week. Be sure to put down your picks and

The new teaching assignments are predicated on

years, Anna'Maria will have three second-grade-only
classes in comparison to the one second-grade-only and
two split classes for second and third grades last year
In addition, the school's pyramid of age levels
which translate into its class structure remains loaded

7-year-olds running around Anna Maria Island.
The bottom of the pyramid will include three kin-

grade-only classes narrowing to two third-grade-only
classes, one third/fourth-grade split and topped off with
two classes each of fourth and fifth grade.

NEW STUFF, CONTINUED FROM PAGE 15


New curriculum
It's named Kaleidoscope.
It has been adopted for all grade levels in prepa-
ration for the Florida Comprehensive Assessment
Test, known fondly to parents as FCAT. FCAT is a
mandatory skills assessment test administered annu-
ally to all Florida students in fourth, fifth, eighth and
10th grades and, if the Florida legislature has its
way, only students who pass will be permitted to
advance to the next grade level.


Happy new school year for
students, teachers and parents!

According to Jim Kronus, principal, Kaleidoscope
encompasses the normally taught computation skills
with lesson plans that enhance a student's ability to
apply nuggets of information to other situations.
An example would be the need to know how
many cars pass through an intersection. Using the old
way, a student learns to count. In Kaleidoscope, the
student learns to count but also learns to expand that
information to graphing, using monitoring devices and


how to relay the information in a written essay.

New reading series
The new Houghton-Mifflin Reading Series is an-
other example of extended learning. Students will, of
course, learn basic reading skills but the structure of the
series adds phonics and the desire for independent read-

Thanks to community support of the school's and
PTO's fundraisers, the school was able to raise the
balance of the money needed over what was allocated
by the school board to purchase a series book for each
and every student.


Children are counting on you to be aware of school zones, buses and bus
stops! As you hurry to and from work and appointments, kids are hurrying to
and from school. Keep an eye out for youngsters waiting for buses and
walking to and from school. Remember to observe school zone speed limits
and as always, that pedestrians have the right of way. This public service

Manatee East gains
World Series berth!
Manatee East has gone to Williamsport to compete
in the eight-team tournament that features four U.S. and
four international teams. They are guaranteed three
games, as teams play each other in "pool play" with the
Stop two teams in each pool playing one game to get to
the finals, which will pit the winner of the U.S. bracket
against the finalist in the international rankings.
The "beast from the east" made it to Williamsport
in dramatic fashion that could not have been scripted
any better. After two batters reached base on errors in
the first inning of the Southern Regional Championship
game, Manatee East couldn't touch College Station or
Texas pitcher Wade Michalsky.
Michalsky had a no-hitter and a 2-0 lead going into
the bottom of the sixth inning before Manatee's Rod
Harper broke up the no-no with a solid single to center
field. After Harper moved to third on consecutive wild
pitches, Ryan Kennedy ripped a line drive up the middle
that Michalsky knocked down with his bare hand. He
quickly picked the.ball up and threw wildly past first as
Harper easily scored, cutting the deficit to 2-1.


Horseshoe winners
Winners in the Aug. 16 horseshoe games
were Bill Starrett of Anna Maria and Russ
Stemple of Bradenton. Runners-up were
George McKay of Anna Maria and Earl White
of Holmes Beach.
The weekly contests get underway every
Saturday at 9 a.m. at Anna Maria City Hall
Park, 10005 Gulf Drive. There are no member-
ship fees and everyone is welcome.

Michalsky lost his fingernail on the play and was re-
placed by Brandon Williams on the mound. Lastings
Milledge stepped to the plate and advanced Kennedy to
third on a ground-out to the second baseman, setting the
stage for third baseman Joe Cocciolone. Cocciolone, who
made several excellent defensive plays to keep his team
in the game, came through with a line drive to center to
score Kennedy with the tying run.
The score remained tied for several nail-biting in-
nings until the bottom of the 10th, when Shaun
Sullivan, the backup catcher who entered the game
when regular catcher Mike Cucci replaced Kennedy on
the mound, stepped to the plate for his first time at bat.
Sullivan surprised everyone with a beautiful bunt for
a base hit.
Larry Cobb followed Sullivan with a sacrifice bunt
to advance Sullivan into scoring position. Sullivan
hustled to second and noticed both the shortstop and
second baseman covering the base, so he kept running
all the way to third. This set the stage for Cucci, who
responded with a perfect bunt down the first-base line
to score Sullivan with the winning run and set off a
wild celebration.
1 can honestly say I have never watched a more
exciting baseball game and have cranked up the VCR
two more times for the plays without the game losing
any of its drama. These kids started out as one of 7,600
teams and now are in Williamsport with a chance to
add on to what up to now is a lifetime of great memo-
ries.
Good luck to these young men and their families!

Islanders needed to help out
Island Football Club player
On a cold, rainy day on February 16, lan
Fairweather went in for a 50-50 ball with reckless aban-
don like he always did. He won the ball and started a
counter attack that saw Tim Bugna score for a 1-0 lead.
He couldn't celebrate the goal, however, because he
sustained a serious injury to his leg on the play and had
to be transported to the hospital for treatment.
lan severely broke his leg on that play and, as a
result, he is faced with a major financial debt to the
doctors who treated his injury.

Club wanted to help him out, so we decided to put to-
gether a benefit golf tournament. The result is the First
Annual lan Fairweather Island Football Club Golf
Tournament at the River Run golf course on 27th St. E.
in Bradenton. The tourney will be held Sept. 6 begin-
ning at 8 a.m.
The tournament will be in a four-person, best-ball
format where everyone plays the team's best shot from
tee to green. There will be refreshments provided on
the course as well as a putting and long drive contest
as well as closest-to-the-pin honors, where the top
player wins an automobile. A party complete with buf-
fet will be held at Tip of the Island restaurant at 5 p.m.
following the tournament for presentation of awards
and a raffle.
Many merchants are involved: the Sandbar, Eddy
B's, Beach Style Clothing Boutique. Duffy's Tavern,
West Coast Surf Shop, Hair Cottage, Hair Motions,
Barefoot Trader, Head to Toe Salon. Old Hamburg
Tavern and others all have generously donated items
to be raffled off to benefit lan. If other merchants would
like to donate something, or if you want to play in the
tournament, please call Kevin P. Cassidy at 778-3153.

Winners celebrate
The Island Football Club finally got to celebrate their
winning the Division II cup as a team last Sunday. Team
sponsors and friends Roger and Annie Mousseau put on
a party for the team at the Tip of the Island. The team pre-
sented Mousseau and fellow sponsors Alby McHenzell,
owner of the Crown and Thistle, as well as Nancy Stork,
owner of Fran Maxon Realty, with crystal soccer balls to
thank them for their support last season.
New and old team members got together to remi-
nisce (or argue, depending on your point of view) about
the past season, and make plans for an even more suc-
cessful upcoming season.
The outlook is bright with several new players
joining a tight-knit group to face the increased rigors
of moving up to the first division'while gracefully ag-
ing!
If the club continues to work hard and receives the
same great fan support that they enjoyed last year, the
first division better look out 'cause the Island Football
Club is coming!

Escaping into talking about fishing


By Bob Ardren
Outdoor Perspectives
Free falling into the end of August marks the end
of summer for school-age children and the beginning
of serious storm watching for the rest of us.
So let's talk about fishing.
The concept of "catch and release" is a hot one
among sport fishers these days for a couple of reasons.
It helps conserve the basic fish stock since many are
returned to the water, and it also allows targeting fish
out of season since they'll be released anyway.
But as usual, things aren't so simple.
Outdoors writer Pete Bodo of the New York Times
relates that some states have tried abolishing closed
seasons on trout in favor of catch-and-release rules. But
it really hasn't worked out.
"Typically, catch-and-release means that anything
goes as long as you do not kill the fish," Bodo writes.
"There is no such thing as overuse in catch-and-release
hell, but there are plenty of damaged fish and grinning
anglers unwilling to exercise self-restraint. I've been
one of them."
The truth is, we probably all have.
Bodo goes on to point out that a fish hog,.even if
they release every fish they catch, is still a fish hog.
Ultimately, fish need protection if we're going to have
a healthy population.
Lee Wulff, credited with introducing catch-and-
release fishing of Atlantic salmon, was often quoted
saying that, "A great game fish is too valuable to be
caught just once."
Bodo adds, "I think it may be too valuable to be
caught 25 times a year, too."

Team Galati grabs third
The Island's Team Galati, captained by Chris
Galati, caught two grouper, two wahoo and a kingfish
Sunday to capture third place in the first DeSoto Fish-
ing Tournament sponsored by the Hernando deSoto


Historical Society. There were 41 boats entered in the
event.
Overall winner in the event, and recipient of the
$3.000 first prize, was Capt. Paul Dickman aboard the
Kilcare Vll. Dickman's boat recorded five wahoo and
a blackfin tuna for the winning score of 389 points.
The wahoo ranged from 15.6 to 34.1 pounds and
the tuna was 22.3 pounds.
Team Galati also won tile "Reef and Wreck Grand
Slam" with a 12.3-pound grouper and a 13.3-pound
mutton snapper.

New storm south
There's a new fight brewing over the use of the
waters in Charlotte Harbor. Clam farmers, former com-
mercial fishers put out of business by the net ban, have
44 two-acre clam farms in the 145.000-acre estuary and
the Coastal Conservation Association (formerly Florida
Conservation Association) wants them stopped.
The president of the Englewood CCA chapter, a
guide, says the clam farmers are taking over some of
his favorite fishing spots. The director of C.L.A.M.
(Charlotte and Lee Aquaculture of Mollusks) says
farms were purposely placed to avoid good fishing
spots and will eventually make local fishing even bet-
ter as "reefs" of clam shells build up.
Capt. Van Hubbard. columnist for the Boca Bea-
con newspaper, wrote last week, "It's beyond me that
the amateur fishermen would have a problem with
sharing a couple of hundred acres of our huge harbor,
especially after taking away these fishermen's liveli-
hoods.
"Please think about what those fishermen have lost
as you whine about the tiny percentage of bay bottom
use you are asked to share. Let them earn their living
in peace with our blessings. They've earned it. Let's
move on and try to solve real problems and not make
an issue out of this.
"Let's go fishing."


On the other hand ...
Eckerd College says its researchers are seeing lots
more bottlenose dolphin in upper Boca Ciega Bay since
the net ban was passed in 1995. The school has been
studying that body of water since it started the Eckerd
Dolphin project in 1993.
In a paper presented before the Atlantic Dolphin
Conference, Eckerd student Samantha Eide reported
more dolphin in the bay since the beginning of the net
ban. "Although our analysis are not yet complete,
we're having roughly twice as many dolphin sightings
today in upper Boca Ciega Bay than we were before the
net ban," said Eide.
"And nearly twice the sighting of dolphin calves."
Well, that's very nice. But cause and effect is a
difficult thing to prove,'and I'm hoping they teach
enough logic to science students at Eckerd that they
know that too.
Meanwhile, we can be glad schools like Eckerd and
its students are concerned about the environment and
studying it. There certainly are answers to be gained, but
you can be sure most of them won't be easy answers.

More bucks for bay
There will be more money available for restoring
Sarasota Bay following the Southwest Florida Water
Management District's designation of the bay as a pri-
ority water body. That means it can be part of the
district's Surface Water Improvement and Manage-
ment (SWIM) program and receive state funding.
The approval comes nearly eight years after the
Sarasota Bay Program actually began bay cleanup pro-
grams, but it was also a vote of confidence in a month
that saw the Sarasota County Commission first with-
hold and then re-instate its $50,000 annual contribution
to the bay program.
So far there's no word on how much or when the
program can expect funds from SWIM coffers.
See you next week.

August means redfish time in backwater


By Capt. Mike Heistand
It's redfish time in the backwater. Reports are
pouring in of huge reds coming on the seagrass flats,
with some charters catching as many as 30 reds in a
day. Offshore, grouper and snapper angling is excel-
lent, as is hunting for mackerel.
Reports at Rod and Reel Pier include mangrove
snapper, catch-and-release snook and permit.
The folks at the Anna Maria City Pier said an-
glers there are catching king mackerel.
Sue at Miss Cortez Fishing Fleet said the four-
hour trips averaged 175 head of Key West grunts, black
sea bass and sand perch. The six-hour trips averaged
300 head of black sea bass, Key West grunts, sand
perch and scamp. The nine-hour trips averaged 30 head
of dolphin, red and black grouper.
Annie's Bait & Tackle said that Capt. Zack on the
Dee Jay II said he's getting huge redfish and trout up
to 25 inches long, mangrove snapper and flounder.
Spanish mackerel are up and coming to the baits, with
some up to 26 inches long.
Dave Pinkham on the Legend said he's finding
some awesome-sized Spanish mackerel, taking one
charter out last week that limited out on the big ones in
about 35 feet of water. Mangrove snapper are also start-
ing to show up everywhere, with some triggerfish
mixed in and some little 15-pound tuna.
Carl at Perico Island Bait & Tackle said wade
fishers are doing well with redfish and trout. He said
they're catching trout around the mangrove islands
with a few nice-sized keepers. There are also good re-
ports of catch-and-release snook. Offshore anglers are
doing good with grouper in the 12- to 14-mile range in
the Gulf.
Capt. Rick Gross reports redfish on every trip
right now, along with some big trout and permit on the
artificial reefs.
Capt. Mark Bradow said he's finding huge reds
up to 40 inches long on the seagrass flats and lots of
