Election fever hits Bradenton Beach


'Tame' key


term in


proposed


Holmes Beach


pet law
By Pat Copeland
Islander Reporter
After reading their city attorney's suggested definition
of a pet, Holmes Beach commissioners said they will con-
sider other definitions at their Sept. 30 work session.
Commissioners agreed to seek a new definition of pet
for their land development code after a summer-long con-
troversy over two chickens owned by a resident. In June
the city received an anonymous complaint about the
chickens but Mayor Bob VanWagoner wouldn't accept it.
A second complainant then stepped forward and
filed a complaint. After a site visit, the mayor ruled that
the chickens are pets, are not a nuisance, and can re-
main in the home.
Commissioners and residents have questioned the
mayor's interpretation of the ordinance, which prohibits
"the raising of cows, chickens, pigs, horses or any other
items or fowl" but does not prohibit the keeping of house
pets, provided they don't become a public nuisance.
"By precedent the code enforcement board has
determined that animals which are named in the initial
category including cows, chickens, pigs, horses and
other item or fowl are prohibited, regardless of whether
or not an individual claims that these types of animals
are house pets," Petruff pointed out.
She said the best definition that she found is as
follows: "House pets shall mean any animal domesti-
cated by man so as to live and breed in a tame condi-
tion. The term house pet includes the keeping of do-
mesticated animals such as dogs, cats, birds and the like
but does not include farm, livestock, fowl or wild and
exotic animals."
She noted that in order for the definition to be un-
derstood, the commission would also have to define
fowl and wild and exotic. She offered the following
definitions of those terms:
Fowl Any of various birds of the order
galliformes, especially the common, widely domesti-
cated chicken (gallus gallus).
Wild and exotic All wild or non-domestic birds,
mammals, reptiles, fish or amphibians which are iden-
tified either as Class I or II wildlife or poisonous or
venomous reptiles by the Florida Game and Fresh
Water Fish Commission and which require FGFWFC
permits for their possession or exhibition.
Another alternative is for the commission to consider
defining a house pet as one kept for pleasure or compan-
ionship rather than utility, Petrutff said. This type of defi-
Snition usually states that animals raised to provide food for
people shall not be considered house pets.
She further noted that the city code's definition
- uses the word "raising," while most of the other ordi-
nances she consulted are more specific using words
such as "keep, harbor, breed or maintain."

Candidates are streaming into Bradenton Beach
City Hall to qualify for the Nov. 4 mayoral and com-
mission election.
Deadline for qualifying is noon Friday. Candidates
for mayor need to pay a $90 filing fee: commission can-
didates pay $45. All candidates need to fill out loyalty
oath forms and file other paperwork at city hall during
the qualifying period, including signatures of 10 regis-
tered voters in the city.
As of Tuesday, a hefty field of candidates had
qualified for office the largest field of candidates in
Bradenton Beach in at least a decade.
Commissioners Connie Drescher and Charlie
Grace are both seeking the office of mayor following


Leroy Arnold's decision not to run for re-election.
Arnold, however, is running for commission in Ward
3, the seat which will be vacated by Drescher.
Ward 1 has Commissioner Dan Goodchild seeking
re-election over challenger William Arnold, a member
of the city's board of adjustment.
Ward 2 has former Commissioner Gale Cole run-
ning against Cedrick Wilson and Richard Cloutman,
both members of the city's planning and zoning board.
Arnold was the lone candidate for Ward 3 as of
press time Tuesday.
Anyone who wishes to register to vote in the Nov.
4 election must do so by Oct. 6. Forms are available at
city hall and other locations on the Island, including
The Islander Bystander offices.

Full-time marine officer back for Holmes Beach


By Pat Copeland
Islander Reporter
After two hours of discussion and several motions
and amendments, the Holmes Beach City Commission
last week passed on first reading a $2.2 million budget
with a 2.25 millage rate.
The police department's full-time marine officer
was reinstated after being taken out at the last budget
work session. However, one $25,000 utility vehicle
was cut from the public works department and addi-
tional raises for department heads, as recommended by
Mayor Bob VanWagoner, were also out.
The budget shows revenues of $2,480,446 and
operating expenses of $2,204,363. Department ex-
penses are $399,151 for general government,
$1,040,210 for the police department and $735,002 for
the public works department. The reserve stands at
$1,364,368.
Commissioners first settled on a millage rate.
Resident Bill Davis said commissioners should
reduce the reserve to lower the millage rate and noted,
"What you are doing is keeping the taxpayers' money."
Treasurer Ann Mitchell said auditors recommend
that the city keep half of its annual budget in reserve.
Residents Joan Perry and Sue Normand called for
a return to 1.75 mills.
"We can't keep dipping into the taxpayers' pock-
ets," Perry said. "We may be living out of our means
here."
Commissioner Carol Whitmore asked that the mill-
age be reduced to 2.0, which would put the reserve at
$1.26 million.
"The reserve is our security to be able to function
as a city and restore services in case we get a bad hit


Bradenton Beach

OKs tentative

budget; final

approval due

Sept. 24
By Paul Roat
Possibly setting a land-speed record for a budget
meeting, Bradenton Beach Commissioners last
Thursday reached the halfway mark on adopting a
$1.62 million spending plan for the next fiscal year.
In just 32 minutes the commission passed two
resolutions, listened to sparse public comment and
passed on first reading an ordinance adopting the
budget.
A second reading of the ordinance, another public
hearing and final adoption of the spending plan for the
city will be held Sept. 24 at 7 p.m. in city hall.
The 1997-98 budget calls for a property tax rate of
2.5508 mills, down from the current 2.5954 mills. A
mill is $1 for every $1,000 of assessed value of prop-
erty, less homestead exemption if applicable.
Property taxes account for $366,029 of the total
revenue to the city, with the rest of the income coming
from gas, sales, cigarette and other taxes and fees.
Speaking of fees, the building fee increase in the
city approved by commissioners last month is pro-
jected to result in $138,314 of revenue to the city
next year.
Highlights of the spending plan include an addi-
tional police officer, a code enforcement officer within
the building department, cost-of-living raises for all
employees and increases in the salaries of the mayor
and commissioners.
The commission also agreed to advance about
$7,000 for purchase of four clocks for the city's clock
tower on Bridge Street, with the hope that the funds
will be reimbursed as the donation drive continues.
"Congratulations you done good," resident John
Sandberg told commissioners on the budget. He sug-
gested that the board consider enhancing the city's on-
going maintenance programs, though.
"The cost of maintaining the infrastructure in the
city is going up," Sandberg said, "and there is no sav-
ings in reducing the budget and putting off infrastruc-
ture improvements."
Sandberg was the lone member of the public to
speak on the budget.


(from a storm)." VanWagoner said. "It's our savings
account and I'm uncomfortable seeing that go below
$1.3 million."
"We face 2.25 mills because for four years we kid-
ded ourselves that nothing was going to happen and
hung onto 1.75 mills," Commission Chairman Don
Maloney pointed out. "Eventually you have to face the
fact that the barn needs painting. '

Budget objections
The major complaints about the budget came from
Davis, who had prepared a two-page narrative as well
as a sample budget that trimmed the city's proposed
budget by $300,000.
As in the previous budget work session, most of
Davis's objections centered on the police department.
He focused on the number of police vehicles, police
retirement pay, the dispatch center, insurance and util-
ity costs, computer software, video cameras on police
cars and police education funds.
Police Chief Jay Romine responded to each com-
plaint as he had in the work session.
Davis made a new recommendation concerning the
dispatch center, which he said duplicates the 911 sys-
tem.
"We're going to build a cellular phone tower here
whether anybody likes it or not," he said. "Negotiate
with GTE to get them to provide to the town officials,
police department, fire department, emergency medi-
cal staff and the public works department free cellular
telephone service.
"I think GTE would gladly agree to arrange switch-
ing gear so if anybody called the current dispatch num-
ber, it would automatically be forwarded to the patrol-


man on duty. In addition to that, they could provide
tape recorders to record any conversations."
Romine said the dispatch center and 911 are very
different and 70 percent of the calls handled by the dis-
patch center are non-emergency.
"Whether it's an emergency or not, the most im-
portant police call is the one affecting that person at that
time," he pointed out.
On patrol officers using cellular phones instead of
dispatch communications, Romine said, "That's abso-
lutely impossible. I'd hate for you to be at your house
at 3 a.m. and somebody was climbing in your window,
but the officer couldn't talk to you because he was tak-
ing another call or breaking up a bar fight. I don't think
you'd be real happy with the service at that point."
Davis questioned a $36,000 salary increase and a
jump in equipment maintenance from $5,800 to $9,000
in the public works department.
Public Works Supervisor Joe Duennes said the
salary increase is for the code enforcement officer, who
is being transferred from the police department, and
step increases. The increased maintenance is for repairs
to the Jeep being transferred from the police depart-
ment, which needs $1,000 in repairs immediately.
The first vote on the budget eliminated the full-
time marine officer, one vehicle in the public works
department and extra salary increases for department
heads. It failed with Commissioners Don Maloney, Pat
Geyer and Ron Robinson dissenting.
After some discussion, commissioners agreed to
restore the full-time marine officer and the budget
passed with Whitmore and Robinson dissenting.
The second public hearing will be held 7 p.m.
Sept. 25.


Making do
Holmes Beach City Hall faced a dilemma last week when anxious residents began calling about recycling old
phone books. The recycling dumpster wasn't due to arrive until Saturday but maintenance employees found a
creative solution with a couple of old barrels and everyone was happy. Islander Photo: Pat Copeland.


Discussion to continue on

Anna Maria building fees


By J.C. Higgins
Islander Correspondent
First reading of an Anna Maria ordinance that re-
vises and raises building permit fees has been post-
poned by the city commission pending further analy-
sis of a section regarding the cost of plan reviews.
The present plan calls for those fees to be half the
permit fee. On a home with a $200,000 valuation, the
permit fee would be $3,831 before adding an additional
$1,915 for the plan review charge.
"The review of the plans, keeping in mind that they
must concur with regulatory guidelines such as the Fed-
eral Emergency Management Act, can take three or four
hours," said Anna Maria Building Official Phil Charnock.
The primary objector to the computation of the plan
review fee was Commissioner Robert McElheny. "I just
think it's too high. To raise the base permit fee from $6
to $19, and add on another large charge seems excessive."
The fees are based on cost of construction. Cur-


rently, Anna Maria charge's $6 for every $ 1,000 of con-
struction. Proposed is raising that fee to $19 per $1,000
of construction.
McElheny recommended the consideration of a
lesser, graduated fee with a cap.
Charnock agreed the plan review fee should un-
dergo further study. "Remember that we are trying to
stay consistent with what is happening in the other Is-
land communities," he said. "Bradenton Beach already
charges half the permit fee for this service. Holmes
Beach is still considering various options."
"Can we just drop the plan review fee completely.
and assume it's covered in the base permit calcula-
tion?" Commissioner George McKay asked.
The commission agreed that all other sections of
the ordinance were in order, including the raise in per-
mit fees to $19.
Mayor Chuck Shumard agreed to reschedule the
first reading within two weeks.

Anna Maria sued again for public records


By Bonner Presswood
For the second time this year, Anna Maria has re-
ceived court orders to compy with public records re-
quests.
In March 1997, Anna Maria City was ordered to
produce records requested by Ken Peterson of Five
O'Clock Marine by Manatee Circuit Judge Robert
Boylston.
Last week Circuit Judge Paul Logan entered an
order demanding Anna Maria Mayor Chuck Shumard
and City Clerk Peg Nelson to furnish records to The
Islander Bystander.
The newspaper's request for records began in July
with verbal requests from reporters for a copy of an
engineer's pipeline study.
Those requests were ignored and building official
Phil Charnock responded that reporters could review a
copy of the report at city hall.
Requests for the engineer's report were made in
writing on Aug. 8 and Aug. 25.
The Aug. 8 request for records included financial
records for the Anna Maria City Pier.
With no response from the city, a second written
request was sent on Aug. 27 including a request for an
application for a building permit.
Verbal requests were made to Charock for .a copy
of the permit on Aug. 12 and Aug. 20. On both occa-
sions, the building official refused to provide the copy.
A phone call to city hall on Aug. 28 only re-
sulted in the clerk's resignation to call the engineer-
ing firm to request the pipeline study and a cost for
the document.
Nelson, who is by city charter the custodian of all
city records, also said she did not have public works
records and could not provide the permit document.
Regarding pier documents, Nelson contended the
request was too "vague," insisting a review of the file
would have to be made prior to a request for docu-
ments.
Charnock called later the same day with a price for
the pipeline document and again refused to provide a
copy of the permit application, demanding a signed
"Copy Request Form" from the newspaper.


"I am denying your request," Charnock said.
Shumard replied to the newspaper with a letter on
Aug. 28, 20 days following the original written request,
stating the newspaper would be allowed to review files
and at that time make requests for copies on the "Copy
Request Form."
Left with no recourse, the newspaper contacted
attorney Don Hadsock, who filed the complaint with
the court.
Hadsock states in his complaint that requiring in-
spection of records prior to furnishing copies, requir-
ing completion of the Copy Request Form and condi-
tioning duplication of records on the mayors approval
is unlawful.
According to Florida statutes, a custodian must
produce records requested "regardless of the number of
documents involved or possible inconvenience."
Further, record requests may not be refused based
on a claim they are overbroad. The only time period
allowed in delaying access to records is the time al-
lowed for a custodian to retrieve the record and delete
any material deemed exempt.
Nothing in Chapter 119, Florida Statutes, the
section covering public records, requires that a per-
son make the demand for records in writing. If the
agency believes written documentation is necessary,
the agency may require the custodian complete an
appropriate form, however, the person requesting
records cannot be required to provide documentation
as a precondition to granting the request.
In fact, the form required to be completed by per-
sons requesting records of the City of Anna Maria
states that requests "must be approved by the mayor,"
a requirement that amounts to censorship, according to
Hadsock.
It also allows the city two working days for copy
requests in excess of 10 pages, although the statutes
clearly state otherwise.
Judge Logan's order, signed and delivered to the
city on Friday afternoon, Sept. 12, allows 48 hours for
the city to comply or be in default.
Records delivered to The Islander Bystander office
on Tuesday, Sept. 16, appear to complete the request


in part but will require review by the newspaper's at-
torney to determine if the city has fully complied.
As in March, the city is now liable for the reason-
able costs of enforcement including attorney fees and
court costs.

Anna Maria bikes, kids (and adults)


By J.C. Higgins
Islander Correspondent
"We have recently observed bikes with no lights
and riders with dark clothing on the streets after dark,"
concerned citizens Diane and Charles Canniff, 327
Tarpon St., said at last week's Anna Maria City Com-
mission meeting. "The riders were both kids and adults.
Someone is going to be hurt, or worse."
Elnora and Bill Worth, 408 Alamanda Ave., were
more blunt in their concern. "The sheriff's office
should tighten down on the violators," Bill Worth said.
"If the violator is a child, the child should be taken
home for a discussion with the parents."
"The policing of violations of this nature is a deli-
cate issue in an island community like ours," Commis-
sioner Robert McElheny commented. "The situation


calls for a 'gently professional' approach."
Regardless, Alfred Burkly, 610 Fern St., expressed
his feelings that a more strict stance must be taken be-
fore severe problems occur.
Anna Maria Mayor Chuck Shumard supported the
position that a firm but gentle approach must be main-
tained. "However," said Shuma:d, "1 will talk to the
sheriff's department and request a closer watch for vio-
lators, and a more strict system of warnings and en-
forcement."
Last week's discussion was a continuation of sen-
timents expressed by residents last April in Anna
Maria, but with a different slant.
A sheriff s deputy stopped a 12-year-old boy while
he was riding his bike home after dark without a light.
Not only did the youth get a $26 ticket, but he was fin-


gerprinted to boot.
"Fingerprinting our children for identification in
Anna Maria is a bunch of baloney," the youth's mother
commented at the time.
Two other youths also were fingerprinted for other
bicycle related infractions.
"If [these type of infractions] ever go to court, we
have to know the person who appears is the person who
was summoned," Manatee County Sheriff's Department
spokesman Dave Bristow said.
Florida Department of Law Enforcement officials
and Florida Department of Transportation bicycle safety
experts at the time called the use of fingerprint identifi-
cation "excessive" for bike problems. Bristow said it is
department policy to take a thumbprint of anyone who
cannot produce picture identification.


More plants gone in Anna Maria
The removal of native plarits at Anna Maria City
Hall, all part of a garden dedicated in 1993 to the
late Commissioner Mary Ross, continues. The most
recent excavation along walkways includes areas
thought to remain by garden advocates following the
plant removal ordered by Mayor Chuck Shunard.
Additional plants were unearthed and left in piles to
make way for Shumard's landscape plan, a sodded
yard. Islander Photo: Bonner Presswood


Bradenton Beach City Pier cleanup city duty


By Paul Roat
When does maintenance turn into housekeeping?
Or, who is responsible for cleaning the fish scales
off the Bradenton Beach City Pier?
The answer, it seems, is the city.
Bradenton Beach Commissioner John Chappie
brought up the cleanup question at a work session last
week. The pier, with a coat of white paint not yet two
years old, is looking pretty grubby, Chappie said, and
the contract with Bradenton Beach Pier & Cafe's Jim
and Georgia McKee is vague on the issue of "mainte-
nance."
Sure, the McKees are responsible for the restaurant
and rest rooms at the pier just east of Bridge Street, but
what about the pavilions, the benches, the railing and
the rest? Chappie asked.


"I believe it's the city's responsibility to take care
of the pier, and let the franchisee take care of the res-
taurant and haul the trash," Chappie said.
He was joined by Commissioner Connie Drescher,
who spearheaded the painting drive on the pier in early
1996. "I'd like to have the pier pressure washed," she
said, "and then have the top surfaces painted. If the city
will pay for the paint, volunteers will do the work."
Other commissioners and Mayor Leroy Arnold
agreed, and instructed Public Works Supervisor Buddy
Watts to establish a regular maintenance or house-
keeping schedule on the structure.
In other pier news, commissioners are reviewing
the use of the pier for special events such as weddings,
anniversaries or parties. Although the city contract with
the McKees is specific about no food or beverages


coming onto the pier, thereby negating any catered
events unless the McKees cater them, the.contract is
mute on the holding of special events.
-Commissioners debated charging for events under
the pier's pavilions and are expected to review what
other areas charge for such happenings and bring the
matter back for more discussion later this year.
And Lee Hornack, president of the Bradenton
Beach Civic Association, said pier security was lax and
needed beefing up.
"If we don't secure the pier, we will continue to
have vandalism," Hornack said. "I believe the police
need to patrol the pier at least once an hour at night."
Hornack's comments sparked Mayor Arnold to
agree that greater police security could and would take
place on the structure at night.


Commission plans to repeal Holmes Beach trailer law


By Pat Copeland
Islander Reporter
Holmes Beach Commissioners plan to draft an or-
dinance to repeal the city's controversial trailer ordi-
nance and seek public comment.
The ordinance has created dissension since its passage
last year, because it restricts trailer and RV parking to side
and back yards. Residents said it would force them to re-
move costly landscaping and fences. In April two groups
of citizens volunteered to draft a revised ordinance but no
revisions have been forthcoming.


"I think we passed a bad ordinance, and I think
we're all adult enough to understand that," Commis-
sion Chairman Don Maloney said. "We should leave
it up to the neighborhoods."
Commissioner Pat Geyer agreed with Maloney.
Commissioner Ron Robinson supports the ordinance.
Commissioner Luke Courtney said he would favor
having a liberal interpretation of the ordinance or re-
pealing it.
"If you can't park in the side or back yard due to
the configuration of the landscape, you can park it in
the front yard," Courtney said. "Let code enforcement
handle it on a case-by-case basis."
"It isn't something you can do with a liberal inter-
pretation, because it leads to the problem of 'why is he
allowed to do it and I'm not?' Maloney objected.
"When the public objected to the ordinance, we asked
them to come back with revisions and no one has ever
come back with anything."
Courtney also said he would he receptive to hav-
ing the ordinance apply to certain sections of the city.


Maloney said that's what he means by leaving it up to
neighborhoods to decide.
City Attorney Patricia Petruff supplied commis-
sioners with an RV Parking Manual published by a
group called the Good Sam Club.
The manual offers support to RV owners and tips
on how to help their city pass an acceptable ordinance
concerning RV parking. It also contains numerous
court cases on the issue.
According to the manual RV owners should:
Be aware of any RV parking legislation being
considered in their communities and why it is needed.
Study the contents of the proposed ordinance and
learn the process for its passage.
Contact other RV owners in the community and
make them aware of the proposed legislation.
Plan a group presentation covering various posi-
tive aspects of the RV lifestyle.
Be willing to compromise.
Further discussion is slated for the Sept. 30 work
session.

Coastal Cleanup
this Saturday


Volunteers throughout the nation will head out-
doors this Saturday for the 10th annual Coastal
Cleanup. Islanders included.
And if a national trend continues, the program of
picking up litter from beaches and shorelines may not
be needed much longer, at least in this country.
The Center for Marine Conservation has calculated
the number of pieces of debris collected since 1988.
That year was the low point in the pickup drive, with
1.97 million pieces of trash collected along 3,517 miles
of shore by 47,531 volunteers.
The peak was in 1993, when 158,257 volunteers
walked 4,458 miles of shoreline to collect 7.33 million
pieces of litter.
And despite more people volunteering to scour
more miles of shore, the amount of trash collected has
gone down every year since. Last year's cleanup re-
corded 3.76 million pieces of junk collected along
5,930 miles of shore by 151,502.
Could it be that we're a cleaner, more environmen-
tally aware generation? Let's hope so.
You've heard it before, and you'll hear it again, but
please pick up your trash as you're leaving the beach.
Better yet, pick up any other trash you find, too.
Even though the national trend seems to be lower-
ing for beach trash, remember that there were still more
than three million pieces of rubbish picked up last year.

nally face the fact that city business is public busi-
ness and all of the public, the newspaper and every
other person out there, is entitled to view records on
demand and to request copies of records.


Maybe Anna Maria will look more closely at
Chapter 119 of the Florida Statutes and stop costing its
taxpayers money in lawsuits.
What do they have to hide?


Island no place for 'dirty' critters
I started frequenting this beautiful Island as a tour-
ist some 10 years ago and I am now a property owner.
The reason for my addressing this issue, this late. is
because my copy of The Islander gets to me some two
to four weeks after it gets to Island homes.
It's amazing how some people will stretch the
meaning of a word for self-serving purposes. Now we
all know that chickens and pigs are raised on farms and
that, as much as we enjoy eating their meat, these crit-
ters are traditionally two of the dirtiest farm animals on
this earth.
Anyone who wants to keep farm or wild animals
in their house or backyard should buy and live on a
farm or in the wild.
Most homeowners choose an area in which to re--
side by its schools and location. I am sure that no one
chose this beautiful Island for its farms or wilderness
except for the sea. I can definitely speak for myself and
family.
Keep this Island as beautiful as it is. Do not turn it
into a farm or a zoo.
Nat Manzella, Anna Maria Island


Hospitality appreciated during
thunderstorm
Thank you to Mr. and Mrs. Cloud of Anna Maria
Island.
We are Turtle Watch volunteers. On Saturday,
Aug. 16, we were on the beach at Bean Point checking
turtle nests when we got caught in a thunderstorm.
Lucky for us we were near the Clouds' home. They
saw us and invited us into their home and gave us tow-
els, coffee and cookies.
Thank you for the hospitality!


The Islander is always
of interest
I look forward to reading The Islander every
week. I pick it up at the Manatee County Beach Pa-
vilion and do the crossword puzzle while relaxing on
that beautiful beach.
What prompts me to write were two especially
interesting articles in the Aug. 27 issue.
"Snooks" Adams' fisheries story and Mabel
Bean's recollection of Teddy Roosevelt and the
Rough Riders.
Elizabeth Van Loan, Bradenton


Fewer doctors not solution to
Medicare woes
Go, figure!
Every congressman and senator in Washington is
scared to death that Medicare will go broke shortly.
We all know enough basic economics to know
that increased supply will lower prices. We also
know that medical doctors trigger more cost than
anything else, so what does our Republican con-
trolled Congress do? They spend $400 million of
Medicare money to bribe medical teaching hospitals
not to teach qualified young persons to become doc-
tors.
Remember, we voted for and therefore elect these
fools.
Would you agree with me that we need more
doctors, competing and charging lower fees and that
will reduce our cost of medical care, lower our insur-
ance premiums and lower the cost of Medicare?
Call your congressman (Miller) and senator
(Mack). They have 800 numbers and tell them to stop
this kind of idiocy.

THOSE WERE THE BAYS
Conclusion, A Spy For Uncle Sam
by June Alder


. ,
Portly Gen. W.R. Shafter (right) and grizzled, bantam-sized Gen. "Fightin' Joe"
Wheeler commanded the force assembled to invade Cuba in June 1898.


HONEYMOON IN

HAVANA


Mabel Williams' career as a post
office clerk/spy in the Spanish-American
War of 1898 lasted only a few weeks.
Her undercover work for the U.S. Army
almost ended her engagement to George
Wilhelm Bean of Anna Maria Island.
But everything ended happily for the
couple. They were wed in the spring of
1899 and spent their honeymoon in Ha-
vana, as Mabel tells us in concluding
her 1937 memoir.

By Mabel C. Bean
Everybody knew that my father was
very busy at the Port of Tampa Post Of-
fice and that I was his right-hand man,
as it were, so they thought nothing of
seeing me flying around on my bicycle.
No one suspected that the young girl
pedaling here and there in her trim sailor
suits had any more important mission
than helping her father.
My fiance (Will Bean) was in the
Naval Reserves so I wore the sailor suit
dresses in deference to him and because
they were appropriate for my work and
my bicycle riding.
Though Gen. Shafter (commander
of the expeditionary force) was very
kind to me and praised me for my work,
I did not like to go to his headquarters at
the Tampa Bay Hotel because it was
filled with soldiers and officers and no
women were there. It did seem to be a
bold thing to do in those days.
One day my fiance met me coming
out of the hotel. He was amazed to see
me and quite displeased. He asked me
what in the world I was doing there and
I replied that I was on an errand for my
father.
My father should have "better
sense," he said, than to send a young girl
where there were only military officers
and soldiers!
When Gen. Fitzhugh Lee landed at
Port Tampa after the war en route to


Cuba (to be military governor in Ha-
vana), I rode down to the dock to see
him with a number of my friends.
An officer came up to me and said,
"I want you to be the first one to greet
Gen. Lee." And he escorted me to the
train steps.
When I shook hands with Gen. Lee
he gave me a sly wink, so perhaps Gen.
Shafter had told him about my secret
service for him.
The next spring I went to Cuba as
a bride and attended the first Memorial
Day exercises held there. The wreck of
the Maine still remained in Havana har-
bor as a grim reminder of the tragic
catastrophe that had occurred at that
place.
The American women in Cuba
decorated the twisted rusty wreck that
had once been a splendid battleship
with flowers and flags and a most im-
pressive service was held in memory of
the Americans who lost their lives in
such a horrible way.
I saw the last of the Spanish sol-
diers leave Havana and witnessed and
took part in many of the activities of the
American army of occupation in Cuba.
Except for the army nurses I believe I
was the only woman, in Florida at least,
who did actual active service in the war
of 1898.

NOTE: Several suspected Spanish
agents were charged with attempting to
poison Tampa's water supply. Whether
Mabel Williams Bean's surreptitious
sleuthing figured in the arrests we'll
never know.

Anna Maria Dumpster
debate, chapter 2:
north wins this battle
By J.C. Higgins
Islander Correspondent
Whoops!
Despite a mayoral minority vote of one to four,
Anna Maria commissioners woke up last week to find
Dumpsters in the north end of the Anna Maria Oyster
Bar parking lot, not the south end as they directed.
"When I drove by the lot I was surprised to see
them at the north end," Mayor Chuck Shumard ex-
plained. "Maybe the folks moving them misunder-
stood, or maybe John Home of the oyster bar had
something to do with it. I don't know."
Shumard asked commissioners to drive over and
see what they think. "I think they look OK there. And
after the fencing and plantings are added, the area
cleaned up, and the Dumpsters put on a slab a little
closer to the water, it will look much better."
At a previous meeting, the commission strongly
favored placement of the Dumpsters as far south in the


lot as possible in a more isolated area fronting Magno-
lia Avenue. They opposed the north location due to the
elevated walkway "looking down" on the Dumpsters,
and because the north end is a high traffic area.


North vs. south
bout won by
default
Anna Maria commission-
ers voted to put Dumpsters
necessary to the city pier
restaurant operation on
city property bayfront
at the south end of the
parking area. When they
were placed at the north-
ernmost end, the mayor
suggested they remain in
that location, his original
preference, but contrary to
the commissioners wishes.
The outcome: north side
dumpsters. Islander Photo:
Bonner Presswood
Regardless, unless the commissioners don't like
what they see on their drive-by, at least one commis-
sioner has already said that squatter's rights will pre-
vail. So it appears that the north won, after all.

Anna Maria code enforcement may change


By J.C. Higgins
Islander Correspondent
In an informal roundtable discussion, Anna Maria
City Attorney Jim Dye brought the commission and the
code enforcement board up to date on recent happen-
ings and problem areas.
Dye pointed out that a remedy not presently being
used by Anna Maria but very popular with other island
communities is use of a citation system.
There are three remedies available to municipalities
to deal with code violations. Dye said, and Anna Maria is
only using the first two. Cities can go straight to court in-
junction used with serious cases, cite the alleged vio-
lator and take the matter to a hearing and possibly get a
lien on property in not-so-serious cases, or the city uses a
citation system by issuing a warning to the alleged viola-
tor that allows 30 days to correct the problem.
No fine would be levied if the problem was cor-
rected; if not, a citation with a maximum fine of $500
would be levied if settlement could not be reached, Dye
said. The case would be handled before the city's code
enforcement board if challenged.


The first two remedies must be handled through the
code enforcement system. The third, the citation sys-
tem, can be handled outside that normally lengthy,
drawn-out code enforcement board procedure in
most instances.
Dye said the citation system can easily be handled
by city personnel on an ongoing basis. A rule of thumb
is that the citation system works great for routine "not
to be argued over" violations.
Dye said a high percent of violations handled un-
der the citation system are settled during the warning
period, without penalties being levied.
Enforcement currently falls on the shoulders of
Phil Charnock, Anna Maria building official. Accord-
ing to Charnock. "We are now on strictly a reactive
basis. We now must wait for a complaint to come in,
and we act on it. We send a certified letter and start
through a very time-consuming routine. We can be
proactive with the citation system. City employees can
be trained, and our deputies can be authorized to hand
out warnings for all kinds of code violations."
The city has been considering adding a full- or


part-time person, possibly a code enforcement officer,
to assist Charnock. Both Alfred Burkly and Dale
Woodland of the code enforcement board asked that
the citation system be put in place first, then see if there
is a need for such a position.
On another code enforcement subject, Dye pointed
out problems with the present system of occupational
licenses. He presented the current Bradenton Beach or-
dinance that specifies violations and penalties.
According to Dye, Holmes Beach is working along
the same lines in an attempt to clarify and simplify code
enforcement. He said occupational license violations
must be enforced through the code enforcement sys-
tem, and Anna Maria must amend its occupational li-
cense ordinance to meet new state requirements.
Mayor Chuck Shumard noted that the next step
would be to schedule a workshop to consider the addi-
tion of the citation system to the present code enforce-
ment procedure, and to bring the occupational license
ordinance up to speed, using the Bradenton Beach or-
dinance as a guideline.
No date for that workshop has been set.


No change in Anna Maria business licenses


By J.C. Higgins
Islander Correspondent
The cost of doing business in Anna Maria
stays the same, at least for now.
Despite many months of study, the city
commission decided to hold the line on occu-
pational license fees. Efforts to change busi-
ness categories and revise the fee structure
were not successful in time for the new budget
year beginning Oct. 1.
So instead of raising fees, license fees will
be addressed sometime during the year and
may consist of only a nominal "cost of living"
increase with present category designations re-


maining unchanged.
"We appreciate the efforts of the committee that
has diligently worked on this, but so far the proposed
new structure is just too vague, and we would take a
major hit in revenue reduction, which we cannot af-
ford," said Mayor Chuck Shumard.
"Also, in an attempt to reclassify businesses more
in line with state law, it appears that several types of
businesses have fallen through the cracks," Shumard
continued. "There must be greater detail specifying the
types of businesses or it's going to be an administrative
nightmare. Our city people cannot be making subjec-
tive decisions on the proper category for an applicant."
With the proposed occupational fee structure in


hand, Building Official Phil Charnock compared
it to the current year revenue. Charnock concluded,
"On an apples-to-apples comparison, the proposed
schedule would have brought us in $8,000 less
than the $26,000 which was collected. With our
ever-increasing administrative costs, this is just not
acceptable."
The major revenue shortfall on the proposed
fee structure was in the category of storage facili-
ties (enclosed, open, boat slips, wet, dry and rack),
with the fees going from $18 per unit to $10.
So, on Oct. 1, Anna Maria enters the new bud-
get year with revenues from occupational fees es-
timated at $26,000, the same as the current year.

A Orimulsion question sent back


-K i lM 0 to hearing officer


By Pat Copeland
Islander Reporter
The governor and cabinet, sitting as the Power
Plant Siting Board, last week sent the Orimulsion is-
sue back to the state hearing judge who originally rec-
ommended approval of the fuel.
In 1994 Florida Power and Light officials began
the process for approval to burn the controversial new
fuel Orimulsion at its Parrish plant. Orimulsion, pro-
duced in Venezuela, is a mixture of bitumen, water
and an emulsifying agent.
Following three weeks of hearings last year, a state
hearing judge recommended approval of FPL's request.
However, in April the board rejected the recommenda-


tion and denied FPL's request to burn the fuel.
In May, the board was ordered by an appeals court
to revisit its original rejection of FPL's request and
document its reasons for denying the request. At the
same time, FPL unveiled several new improvements
and commitments for burning the fuel including further
reduction in plant emissions, funding for a vessel track-
ing system in Tampa Bay and using trains instead of
trucks for pick-ups and deliveries.
The board's recent decision raises the question of
whether FPL's new improvements and conditions can
be considered by the judge in his review. Environmen-
talists who oppose Orimulsion's use question the legal-
ity of introducing new evidence into the proceedings.

CORTEZ

CONNECTIONS


By Mary Fulford Green

New book details the
history of Cortez
Cortez does exist. This fact has now been docu-
mented with the release of a new book, Corte., Then
And Now, published by the Cortez Village Historical
Society
The book was funded in part from historic preser-
vation grant assistance provided by the Bureau of His-
toric Preservation, Division of Historic Resources of
the Florida Department of State, under Secretary
Sandra Mortham.
It has been my privilege to serve as the writer.
I am proud to be the granddaughter of Capt. W.T.
Fulford, the first pioneer settler to purchase land at
Hunter's Point, now called Cortez.
It was bought in 1889 and marked the beginning of
what would be the last fishing village to develop on the
Suncoast. Other Manatee County fishing communities
on Sneads Island, Terra Ceia, Palma Sola, Fogartyville
and Palmetto Cove have long since disappeared.
Cortez artist Linda Molto photographed the many
historic structures which appear in the book. Another
photographer/ artist, Virginia Sanders of Longboat
Key, supplied the photo on the back cover of the book.
We see it as fitting that Virginia, recognized for her
work as an environmentalist, contributed to the book.
In this work we have achieved our purpose of docu-
menting that the place called Cortez does exist. We
invite you to visit it through the words and pictures of
the book.
We also ask that you support our efforts to keep the
Cortez commercial fishing village alive for another 108
years. These efforts include habitat restoration; remov-
ing pollution from the bays; promoting many fishing
related activities including bait catching, shrimping and
deep-sea fishing; touring the historic village; and pa-
tronizing the seafood markets and restaurants which
serve fresh, locally caught seafood.
We take pride in the quality of our blue crabs,
shrimp, grouper, stone crabs and the best fish known
anywhere our mullet.
We believe that if you hear about the past struggles
and listen to our hopes for the future you'll want to
become involved in our plans for the years ahead. Per-
haps too you will get to know us the people who
have called this place "home" for so many generations.
The 240 pages, including more than 190 photos, is
a credit to those who worked on this project for the


Historical Society. All the members of the society are
credited with working the many fundraisers needed to
meet "matching funds" for the grant used to publish the
book.
Proceeds from the sale of the hooks will go into the
School House Fund, for the eventual purchase of the
historic 1912 school house as a future site for the
Cortez Community Center and the central building in
the Cortez Cultural Heritage Park.
The proposal for funding for acquisition and level-
opment of the school house will go before an advisory
board in Tallahassee September 16-18. The proposal is
short some of the expected "cash match" needed, but
it is not short on optimism.
Cortez, Then And Now depicts the Historic
District's significance a result of its being listing on
the National Register since 1995. The description of the
fishing industry includes photos of boats used over the
years, beginning with the "skipjacks" of the 1890s.
Many newcomers have said that they would like to
"walk the village" and look at the 97 historic contrib-
uting structures but they hesitate to do so as they feel
that they are in somebody's backyard. The book offers
a way to visit without intruding on village life.
Also, private self-directed walking tours can now
be made thanks to a newly published Walking Tour
Map of the fishing village. The map legend readily
identifies each of the houses on the map. Cost of the
walking tour map is $1 and is available at fish houses
and businesses in Cortez.
Copies of the book are now available. Both tele-
phone and mail order requests will be processed. Mem-
bers of the Cortez Village Historic Society may pur-
chase copies for $15. The price to non-members is
$19.95. Membership is open to all with a fee payment
of $10 per year.
Speakers are available for groups to present the
book and to offer more details about the village's past
and future. There is no charge for the public presenta-
tions.
Request for speakers and books may be made by
mail to Cortez Village Historical Society. P.O. Box
663, Cortez FL 34215. Add $1.25 for processing and
postage. Or, call me at 756-3784 after 7 p.m.

Other happenings
The after school program at the Cortez Community
Center is officially underway and plans for a new video
to be called "Tales Of Cortez" are progressing.
Funding for operation of the CCC has been recom-
mended by a Tallahassee advisory council, and we
hope to receive some state funds for the program. There
is no charge for the program which is open to all youth
ages 5-17.
The video is being produced by David Clarke of
International Video Projects, Inc., of Lakeland. It will
focus on the hopes for the future shared by both old-
timers and the younger generation.

Coastal Cleanup is coming


Clean up after

yourself
By Jim Hanson
Islander Correspondent
Anna Maria Islanders are trashier than visitors.
That's the conclusion Larry and Barbara Lacina of ,
Holmes Beach reached or were driven to after
years on the beaches here.
Lacina said she and her husband walk the beaches
almost every day, carrying trash bags which they load
up during their walks.
"It's just amazing," she said. "We've picked up so
many thousands of cigarette butts that even when we're
just out there recreationally and I see someone smoking,
I want to rush over and say 'Please don't toss that down.'"
And that's not the worst of it. People leave bottles, .,
food containers, papers -just about anything they can
carry to the beach, they'll leave there, Lacina said. .
What has surprised and disappointed the Lacinas. ... --.
though, is the natives. They find much more debris on the
beaches in summertime than during the season. They in-
terpret that to mean that outlanders care more for beach Center's kids join effort to Keep Manatee Beautiful

Junk champs of
Manatee County are...
Leffis Key and Palma Sola Causeway are the
junk champions of Manatee County's beaches.
Every year when Coastal Cleanup Day rolls
around, volunteers find more trash at those two lo-
cations than anywhere else in the county.
Last year was no exception, nor is this year ex-
pected to be. Leffis Key surrendered 1,272 pounds
of trash last year and the causeway 2.290 pounds.
Other heavy contributors were Cortez Beach with
425 pounds, Coquina Beach 325, Kingfish boat ramp
300, Anna Maria city 257, Perico Bayou 250.
Ingrid McClellan, Keep Manatee Beautiful ex-
ecutive director and chief of Coastal Cleanup, said
it is only logical that Anna Maria Island beaches
collect the most junk since most of the county's
beaches are here.

Data on cleanup results,
work performed
Data collection is an important part of Coastal
Cleanup, according to Ingrid McClellan, executive
director of Keep Manatee Beautiful and head of the
annual cleanup campaign in the county.
Much of this 10th annual effort will be on Anna
Maria Island, since the Island has most of the
county's beaches. It will begin at 9 a.m. Saturday.
Sept. 20. and last until noon.
Volunteers may turn out for the effort at Anna
Maria City's city hall. Palma Sola Causeway or the
Beach House restaurant parking lot in Bradenton
Beach.
McClellan said volunteers should record items
of trash they find so data may be compiled, analyzed
and compared with information collected in past
years.
"Comprehensive reports illustrating trends ob-
served over time are useful tools which can be used


to influence local, state
policy," she said. Some

Divers taking Coastal
Cleanup undersea
Scuba divers and snorkelers will join hundreds of
landbound volunteers in the annual Coastal Cleanup
Saturday, Sept. 20.
Lorraine Athas, president of Sea Trek Divers of
Bradenton Beach and coordinator of the underwater
sweep, said said her group will pick debris off the bot-
tom and bring it ashore for disposal.
Athas wants divers and snorkelers to meet at her
store, 105 7th St. N., to organize areas for their atten-
tion. They may work a 50-year-old shipwreck 150
yards offshore from the dive shop, or anywhere else
that needs cleaning up.
Each participant who bring in a bag of trash will
get a free tank of air, and the group that collects the
most trash will get a $25 "air card" good for 10 air fills.

Today's trash will be
around for many,
many tomorrows
Plastic is the worst offender as a threat to wildlife, said
Ingrid McClellan, executive director of Keep Manatee
Beautiful and chief of the annual voluntary Coastal
Cleanup on Saturday, Sept. 20, from 9 a.m. to noon.
Plastic is doubly treacherous: It is has myriad neces-
sary uses all around the planet, and it doesn't break down
into component parts for centuries. Some examples:
Monofilament fishing line takes 600 years to disin-
tegrate.
Plastic bottle 450 years.

Paper products, on the other hand, are biodegrad-
able on a much faster schedule. A paper towel disinte-
grates in two weeks, a newspaper in six weeks.
Even other seemingly dangerous items are quicker
to break up than plastics, though that's little consola-
tion. A tin can takes 50 years, aluminum can 200,
Styrofoam cup 50.
All of them are potentially lethal to birds and sea
life, said McClellan, and should never be discarded on
a beach or in water.

Volunteers needed for
Coastal Cleanup
The Coastal Cleanup is a fine example of people co-
operating to help clear up a problem that people caused,
said Ingrid McClellan, who as executive director of Keep
Manatee Beautiful heads the cleanup program.
The 10th annual sweep of the coastline, most of it
on Anna Maria Island, will be from 9 a.m. until noon
Saturday, Sept. 20.
Volunteers are badly needed, said McClellan. A
total of 419 worked Anna Maria's beaches and Palma
Sola Causeway last year, and more could have been
kept busy.
Persons volunteering for a designated area should
call McClellan at 795-8272. Residents can show up at
9 o'clock on cleanup morning at these designated
check-in spots:
Anna Maria City at city hall.
Holmes Beach at Palma Sola Causeway.
Bradenton Beach at Beach House restaurant park-
ing lot.

Taste of Anna Maria
coming Sept. 27
A dozen restaurants have signed up already to of-
fer specialties at the first autumn Taste of Anna Maria
all afternoon Saturday, Sept. 27.
Sponsored by the Anna Maria Island Chamber of
Commerce, the major gastronomic event will be at St.
Bernard Catholic Church hall, 248 S. Harbor Drive,
Holmes Beach.
It is designed to let local restaurants show off their
cuisine and encourage dining out in the off season, the
Chamber said. It is not expected to interfere with the
annual winter season Taste of Anna Maria, which will
be in late January.
The only problem with the autumn affair is that
restaurants may be short of staff in September, and in-
deed some restaurants themselves take at least part of
the month off.
Admission is free and tickets will be sold for 50
cents each at the door, to be used instead of cash for
food purchases. A bar will offer wine, beer and sodas
for tickets or cash.
The restaurants already planning to participate (and
there's room for more, check the Chamber at 778-1541),
along with some of their Taste of Anna Maria menus:
Beach House Restaurant, decision pending on its
menu.
Brian's Sunny Side Up Cafe, soup and sandwich.
Buccaneer Inn restaurant, key lime pie.
Gulf Drive Cafe, "wraps," (flavored flour tortilla
with filler of choice).
Isabelle's Eatery, Hawaiian chicken salad.
Joe's Eats & Sweets, ice cream sundaes in vari-
ety.
Mar Vista Dockside Restaurant & Pub, menu
pending.
Plum Pleasing Desserts, apple crumb, cheesecake
and other cakes.
Rod & Reel Pier, peel-and-eat shrimp and conch
chowder.
Sandbar Restaurant, menu pending.
Shells, chilled, grilled shrimp, clam chowder.
Tony's Place, meatball sandwich, sausage and
pepper sandwich.

The Island Poet
What power these commercials have to prove they are the best,
To make us viewers believe they have proven every test.
There are so many goofy commercials that are showing up all the time,
And some are so silly they will drive you out of your mind.
How about those babies in the commercials who are having a big time,
'Cause there mothers bought a diaper that just fits their behind.
When all the time for those kids the whole thing is just a game,
For they don't care what diaper they wear and will treat them all the same.

Beachfront properties and guests in beachfront rental units can have a handy
reminder at the front door or in the kitchen wherever it will be noticable that lights
near the beach must be turned out from May to October. Just copy this cut-out light
switch cover and post it. This is your chance to contribute to helping an

your beach over the course of the next 100 years to nest!

Coming and going
Who knows better than Islanders how quickly
things come and go.
Some of us with long Island histories remember the
evolution of the Holmes Beach Yacht Club. You know,
Pete Reynard's, Shuckers, Pete's again, Crabby Bill's,
Back Bay Boathouse, Name Our Restaurant and finally
Marina Bay.
How about the old High Seas? Then it was Roast-
ers, Zoomers and Down the Hatch. After Easter this
year the sign went out on the road, "Closed for Sea-
son."
Huh?
Season had just ended. Now the sign reads "for
sale," as if we needed a psychic to predict that one.
Fast Eddie's Place did a lot of coming and going
up and down the Gulf coast. He operated six restau-
rants, closing four prior to his final demise, foreclosure
in December 1992.
His Anna Maria flagship restaurant and one in
Venice were the last to close.
John Home is a Fast Eddie survivor.
Working for Ed Porter, and later Porter's former
partners, brothers Phil and Ben Seay, Home was ap-
pointed to take over operation of the city pier restau-
rant and reopened Fast Eddie's under the name An-
chorage.
Deja vu? The Anchorage opened on the same site
in the mid-1930s and fell into disrepair. It was demol-
ished by the city in 1977.
You can watch it happen again this week. Demo-
lition is set to begin Wednesday, Sept. 17, at 7:30
a.m.
It's ironic that Holmes Construction would be
hired to tear this version of the Anchorage down and

haul it away. The original anchorage was constructed
in 1935 by the late John Holmes Sr. great-uncle of
Hugh, owner of Holmes Construction.
Holmes Sr. built the tavern for Lola Mae Hackman
and Dewey Adams, according to John Holmes Jr.
Islander newspaper cartoonist Jack Egan said he
can remember dancing at the old Anchorage where
"people would dance 'til they fell down but you
didn't dare touch them. They were too sweaty."
The city pier lease was assigned to the Seay broth-
ers and John Home continued to run the pier operation


even after the second Anchorage closed in May 1995.
It appeared Horne was working for a new corpo-
ration in March 1996 when a "slick" entrepreneur,
Anthony DeFeo, rolled into town and made an offer on
the Seay brothers property.
DeFeo took over the pier, sent Home to Sarasota
to oversee another restaurant his company, Casko Bay
Restaurant Group, was buying and things appeared to
be on the up and up.
Tractor trailers appeared on the lot behind the

Anchorage and DeFeo professed to be remodeling.
Cleaning house and skipping town was closer to
the truth. He left the city pier in debt as well as the
owners of Jack's Chophouse and Down Under Jazz Bar
in Sarasota.
The Federal Bureau of Investigation and other law
enforcement agencies are reported to be on the lookout
for DeFeo.
Home came back to the pier, pulled it up from
debt and continues to please crowds with mammoth,
delicious crab cakes, terrific lobster rolls and lobster
salad, terrific gumbo and an unbeatable atmosphere
out over the water with a full view of the Sunshine
Skyway Bridge.
This week Horne opened his first expansion, a
landside version of the Anna Maria Oyster Bar, on U.S.
41 just a short distance north of the airport.


It's at the location of the former, short-lived
Bollettieri Sports Grill and Bar. Whatever Nick
Bollettieri does at his tennis academy to turn out
such grand tennis players, failed to make for a good
restaurant.
Islanders and owners will converge in this loca-
tion where Horne offers the same brand of fare as the
pier. There's no water view, but town could use
some good seafood.
And some fun, too. Towners deserve to have it as
good as we do and then maybe some day they'll leave
us all alone out here on the beach some day when
they have it as good as we do.

Somebody missed the point
If we had "rants and raves" (if only we had thought
of it first) we'd have a rave for Shells restaurant and the
Anna Maria Island Community Center.
Shells donated staff and food for a soccer banquet


last week, allowing the Center to profit from ticket
sales for the event, an annual kick-off for the season
where teams distribute official uniforms.
The rant goes to 100 or so folks who were disap-
pointed with Shells service and demanded a refund for
the $5 adult, $4 kid, tickets.
It was certainly unfortunate that the Shells staff
had to delay service when their fryer conked out on
them.
They sweated and cooked as hard as a crew ever
did. Utilizing limited kitchen equipment at the Center,
they got food out as fast as possible.
The Center counts on the fundraiser to support the
soccer program and clearly no one was at fault for the
snafu.
Shells has'promised to make it up somehow to soc-
cer folks.
Now, how will the soccer folks make it up to the
Center?

IFC dominates first game
of new season
The Island Football Club made a successful first-
division debut, achieving two goals each from three
players on the way to a 7-1 thrashing of Deportivo
Lima Sunday at St. Petersburg's Puryear Park. Picking
"man of the match" was difficult as Tim Bugna, Nick
LeDuc and Neil Fellowes each scored two goals while
Matt Bowers scored only one. Bowers also played stel-
lar defense so the team shared the Foster's oil can.
Bugna opened the scoring in the 15th minute when
he controlled a header from Richie Bell and ripped a
shot on goal. Lima's goalie deflected the ball back at
Bugna and he finished the rebound for the first goal of
the season.
IFC then took control of the game, scoring three
goals in a six-minute span in the first half. It started
when Danny Mitchell sent a cross into the goal mouth
that LeDuc finished with a strong header for a 2-0 lead.
Deportivo Lima then kicked off, had the ball sto-
len and watched as Jeff Nelson brought the ball up the
left side where he found LeDuc. LeDuc pushed the ball
around the defender and hammered it into the back of
the net for a 3-0 lead.
Fellowes finished the onslaught when he ran onto
a LeDuc pass on the right flank and hit a rocket to the
far post for a 4-0 lead that held up until halftime.
The Islanders came out in the second half and

nents chase the ball around and conserving energy
for the hot, muggy day. Their strategy created many
scoring opportunities for the locals.
Ken Bowers almost scored when he came in one-
on-one with the Lima goalie, but his shot was turned
away, barely. Fellowes just missed scoring two goals,
one on a spectacular volley.
Matt Bowers finally capitalized for the Islanders
when he headed in a rebound off a Nelson rocket for a
5-0 lead. Nelson had gathered in a long corner kick

Lima converted the penalty kick for its only score of
the day and cut its deficit to 5-1.
With the 5-1 lead and the opposition dead tired, the
Islanders pulled number-one goalie Lance Bieker and
put him up front. Bieker made his presence known right
away, finding Bugna in front of the goal with a nice
chip that Bugna finished off for a 6-1 lead.
Two minutes later, Bieker brought the ball up field
where he found Bill Brickse. Brickse carried the ball to the
goal, drawing the defense toward him. He pushed the ball
out to an onrushing Fellowes who one-timed the ball into
the back of the net for the final goal of the day.
IFC got good performances from everyone including
several players in for their first game with the locals.
New team members include mid-fielders Jeff
Nelson, Kevin Morash and Jeff Lonzo and defender

Elk, Orimulsion there's some real smog potential


By Bob Ardren
Outdoor Perspectives
Living on an island it's easy to forget that most of
Florida is inland. And some pretty curious things are
happening inland, even locally, these days.

The elk of Arcadia
Here's betting you didn't know that elk once
ranged as far south as Georgia and Alabama, but have
been gone a very long time now. However, there is a
herd of more than 90 elk near Arcadia on the Up River
Ranch, a 2,500-acre spread owned by Sarasota anesthe-
siologist Dr. Bob Hamilton.
Hamilton raises the critters for their antlers. Like
the far-more-common deer of which elk are a cousin.
bull elk grow and shed a new set of antlers every year.
And those antlers are worth a lot of money.
Oh sure, you can eat elk, and a few restaurants
around serve it. Tastes good, I'm told, if you really
like dead elk.
Reminds me of my kid brother who was celebrat-
ing 25 years of bow hunting for deer. When he admit-
ted over a beer that he'd never bagged one, I asked why
and he replied, "You mean you actually like venison?"
But the 40 bulls in the Up River herd are the money
makers. Each one produces a set of antlers weighing 25
to 40 pounds each year, and antlers sell for between
$50 and $150 a pound.
They're bought by alternative medicine manu-
facturers in either the Far East or American markets.
Ground up and put into capsules, the antler dust is


used to treat rheumatism, arthritis and even high
blood pressure.
Both the ranch and adjoining Up River recreation
area are open to the public and tours are offered. So if
you'd like to see some real Florida elk some day, take
a drive over to Arcadia.

Orimulsion decision hangs
Well, the Cabinet and Governor in Tallahassee
sidestepped a decision on Orimulsion by a 5-2 vote, but
that didn't happen in the United Kingdom. The power
company in Wales has finally given up trying to get
permission to use the controversial fuel.
Orimulsion is presently being used in Japan, China,
Lithuania, Italy. Canada and Denmark which recently
said it would stop if the material isn't re-formulated to
remove a dangerous chemical.
But our Manatee County Florida Power and Light
plant, if it actually begins using the material, will be the
world's single largest user.
So hang onto your hats as FPL spends millions on
advertising again to save us money, don't you know
- trying to convince Floridians that Orimulsion is just
what we need.

Bend over
Don't forget Saturday is Coastal Cleanup day
and we all owe a little effort to help preserve reasons
we're all here. That's the beach and waters, in case
you didn't know.
So limber up a bit, and prepare to bend, reach


and bag trash and litter for the sake of the environ-
ment on Saturday. There are plenty of details else-
where in this issue.

Office/home smog
And just so you can say you read it in your home
town paper first, here's the next big environmental is-
sue coming down the pike, and it's not even outdoors.
It's smog in the office and at home.
Alun Anderson, editor of New Scientist magazine,
says that "Next year word should come down from the
Environmental Protection Agency ... office smog is
going to emerge as a major talking point." This follows
an article entitled "Chemical Warfare at Work" in the
June issue of the magazine.
But it's not just the office with its fax machines,
photo copiers, printer ribbons, freshly painted walls
and synthetic furniture that's becoming a problem.
Now most of those things are in our homes too, and at
least here in Florida, our houses tend to be sealed up as
tight as we can get them. And that's a perfect setup for
what's called the "chemical soup."
On top of all that, according to Bell Communica-
tions Research, it has now been found that this chemi-
cal soup eventually causes circuit boards to fail well
before their expected lifetime. Bell didn't say anything
about people.
"Hey, it's modem times," as they say in the Cay-
man Islands. As for me, the windows stay open to the
breezes, and there's no smog here.
See you next week.

Backwater, offshore action excellent right now


By Capt. Mike Heistand
Now is definitely the time to dip a line in the wa-
ter and expect a good hook-up. Backwater action in-
cludes redfish, snook and flounder. Expect a mackerel
or two if you're fishing from the beach, and grouper or
a snapper or two if you go offshore.
The folks at the Rod and Reel Pier report big
snook hook-ups, with linesiders running from 35 to 42
inches, plenty of mackerel, red snapper, mangrove
snapper and a few pompano.
Joe at the Anna Maria City Pier said anglers there
are catching snapper, snook in the early morning and
also at night. Spanish mackerel and a few flounder.
Sue at Miss Cortez Fishing Fleet said the four-
hour trips averaged 100 head of Key West grunts and
sand perch. The six-hour trips averaged 125 head of
sand perch, black sea bass and Key West grunts. The
nine-hour trips averaged 20 head of mangrove snapper
and red and black grouper.
Annie's Bait & Tackle said that Capt. Zack on the
Dee Jay II is finding snook fishing spotty during the
day. Redfishing is fair, but trout, pompano and man-
grove snapper are coming on strong. Capt. Zack said
his best bet for the week is flounder, with several in the
18-inch range. He also said he found bluefish back in
Sarasota Bay this week, and is catching Spanish mack-
erel in the Gulf.
Jack at the Cortez Fishing Center said backwater
fishing is very good right now, with lots of keeper-size
snook and some 34-inch reds. Offshore, look for mack-
erel close to shore, grouper farther out.
Capt. Jason Henzell on the Neva-Miss said he's
catching red grouper up to 20 pounds in size in about
100 feet of water using cut thread herring. The same
bait is working for him with mangrove snapper and bar
jack, all in about the same depths.

Lee at Perico Island Bait & Tackle said trout and
redfish are on the seagrass flats, snook in the passes at
night. Spanish mackerel off the beaches and grouper in
about 90 feet of water offshore.
Capt. Rick Gross said snook and reds are being
boated on every trip he made last week.
On my boat Magic we're finding lots and lots of

Ethan Dakin, of Myakka, helped catch these redfish
while out with Capt. Mike Heistand.


Bill Laba caught this 36-inch, 18-pound red off the
Rod and Reel Pier.



redfish in the backwaters, plus a few trout and some
keeper snook.
Capt. Tom Chaya said snook, reds and trout were
his best bets.
Capt. Thom Smith at Angler's Repair said he's
finding good-sized snook and some 28-inch reds.
Bill at Island Discount Tackle said fishing is red-
hot right now, with snook, trout and reds the best bet
for wade fishers, mackerel and pompano for shore or
pier anglers and snapper, grouper and amberjack for
offshore hunters.
Good luck and good fishing.
