Mayor puts halt to cell tower construction


By Pat Copeland
Islander Reporter
Citing allowances in the city's code, Holmes
Beach Mayor Bob VanWagoner last week ordered the
building department to put a hold on GTE's cellular
tower permit.
The 150-foot tower is to be built by GTE at Smith
Realtors, 5910 Marina Drive. It will be built on top of the
building near the rear, atop the Big Bamboo Raw Bar.
VanWagoner pointed to a section of the code's
criteria for site plan review which states, "An applica-
tion for site plan review may not be submitted for re-




VETOED

Mayor cancels

contiguous lot

ordinance
By Pat Copeland
Islander Reporter
Holmes Beach Mayor Bob VanWagoner has exer-
cised his veto on another controversial issue.
Last month VanWagoner vetoed a cellular tower.
This week VanWagoner vetoed the ordinance on con-
tiguous lots, maintaining it is not consistent with the
city's comprehensive plan.
The ordinance, passed by the city commission on
Sept. 16. will allow the owner of contiguous, non-con-
forming legal lots of record to split those lots and sell
them. Only single family homes can be built on the lots.
The ordinance will also allow the owners of a
home built on two or more contiguous, non-conform-
ing lots to demolish that home and build two single
family homes, one on each lot.


Mayor Bob
Van Wagoner said
by allowing an
existing structure
on two contiguous
lots to be demol-
ished and replaced
by a dwelling on
each of the lots,
"density increases
will obviously
result, perhaps to
a degree beyond
current maximum
classifications."


The issue came to the
forefront last year when the
owner of two contiguous lots
wanted to sell one lot. Build-
ing Official Joe Duennes said
according to the 1989 com-
prehensive plan and city
code, if one person owns two
contiguous lots, the lots must
be combined.
VanWagoner said'he
shared concerns about the or-
dinance cited by City Attor-
ney Patricia Petruff in an
April 29 letter.
"It is my opinion that
the city's codes, which estab-
lish minimum parcel size and


allow contiguous lots to be combined to meet the zon-
ing district's minimum parcel size, are enforceable,"
Petruff wrote.
"Further, it is my opinion that an argument can be
made that allowing a contiguous parcel which meets
minimum parcel size to be split into smaller parcels
may be inconsistent with the maximum density require-
ments established for the low-density residential future
land use classification."
VanWagoner said the ordinance is not consistent
with the Coastal and Conservation Element of the com-
prehensive plan: "As an ongoing objective, the city
shall not increase densities or intensities of use within
the designated Coastal High Hazard Area."
He noted that while the ordinance does not increase
densities, "it does lower restrictions against land use of
contiguous lots which have been in the land develop-
ment code since 1976."
He said by allowing an existing structure on two
contiguous lots to be demolished and replaced by a
dwelling on each of the lots, "density increases will
obviously result, perhaps to a degree beyond current
maximum density classifications."


consideration for a period of one year after the date on
which the application for site plan review has been
denied by city commission."
He maintained that the commission's tie vote on
July 1 on GTE's special exception application, which
included the site plan, had the effect of denying the
application. Commissioner Pat Geyer was absent for
that vote.
The commission reconsidered in August after a
protest by GTE officials, and the special exception was
approved by commissioners in a three-two vote. It was
immediately vetoed by the mayor.


In September, commissioners overrode the
mayor's veto in a four-one vote.
It's the mayor's opinion that the application is now
returned to the status it had following the July 1 vote
and GTE cannot resubmit the application until July 1,
1998. He also directed the city attorney to seek a judi-
cial review of the issue from the state attorney general's
office.
VanWagoner said that according to the city char-
ter, the referendum proceedings initiated by a group of
citizens last week require that "the ordinance be sus-
pended from taking effect."

Turtle found strangled in fish


trap off Holmes Beach


By Jim Hanson
Islander Correspondent
Two men working in a beach apartment used a
kayak to bring ashore the body of a "really big" logger-
head turtle, strangled by an illegal fish trap's anchor
rope.
The turtle apparently tangled in the rope for the fish
trap off Holmes Beach at 69th Street, said Suzi Fox,
who holds the state's permit for turtle conservation for
the Island.
The turtle, probably a female, was 3 1/2 feet long
and an estimated 250 pounds, Fox said. Turning the
body over for examination required an iron bar levered
by two men, she said.
Mark Wilson, who owns Wilson Wall Services of
Holmes Beach, said he and employee Paul Brosam of
Bradenton were working in the Tiffany Apartments
when they spotted "something floating off the beach."
"I went to my house (near by) and got my seago-
ing kayak and Paul took it into the Gulf and I swam
with it. 1 thought the turtle might be still alive. I had my
diving mask and when we got there I dived to see what
was holding it.
"It was a homemade fish trap, totally illegal, and
it had something very heavy anchoring it to the bottom.
I cut the rope and Paul tied a lifejacket to it as a float.
He pushed it ashore with the kayak."
Ms. Fox said Holmes Beach Police Officer Henry
Frappier helped beach the turtle and kept the curious at
bay, but when she asked if the department had a boat


so divers could explore further, he "had to tell me that
no, they don't have one." She called the Coast Guard,
whose crewmen were unable to raise whatever was
anchoring the trap. "But they've still got my lifejacket,"
said Wilson.
After Turtle Watch special "strandings and salvag-
ing team" members 'ane Torkey and Tom Van Ness
took statistics, the turtle was buried by the Public
Works Department.
Evidently dead for several days when it was found
Monday, Sept. 22, this was the third dead turtle found
on the Island this year and the first loggerhead; the oth-
ers were Kemp Ridleys.

ISLAND BUDGETS


Anna Maria

budget hearings

completed
By J.C. Higgins
Islander Correspondent
The long-drawn-out preparation process is finally
over, and the Anna Maria budget is now in place for
fiscal year 1997-98.
Several last-minute changes were made prior to
final approval, including rethinking of the donations
category.
Vice Mayor Doug Wolfe said, "I don't think it is
a proper role of the city to get into the donations habit,
no matter how worthy the cause. That is not what tax-
payer dollars are meant for."
Representatives from the Island Players and the His-
torical Society expressed their appreciation for the city's
current support and spoke of programs now in place which
will result in each organization being more self-sufficient
in the future. Upon hearing that current donations were not
assumed to be ongoing commitments, the commission
approved contributions of $13,000 to the Anna Maria Is-
land Community Center and $1,000 each to the Anna
Maria Island Historical Society, the Island Players and So-
lutions To Avoid Red Tide.
Another 11th-hour change was the transfer of
$1,690 from the tree maintenance account to the emer-
gency management account for an alert box system
which the Island communities are adopting for early
notification of all types of emergencies, such as storms
or bridge problems.
A budget request by Tom Turner, chairman of the
Planning and Zoning Board, for $9,500 to cover an
engineering study for drainage improvements was not
granted line item approval in the budget, but the com-
mission agreed that the study should be carried out
when funds become available from increased revenues
or from over budgeted expenditures.
Turner said he believed there is an urgent need to
improve the conditions in two areas comprise by a par-
cel of some 40 or 50 acres along North Shore Drive
north and south of Jacaranda.
Noting these exceptions, the commission approved
the $1,047,031 budget for the fiscal year beginning
Oct. 1, 1997, which contains the following highlights:
Revenue from ad valorem taxes, $380,242.
Revenue from franchise fees, $110,173.
Revenue from licenses and permits, $101,000.
Revenue from state revenues, $141,229.
Revenue from county shared revenue, $205,287.
Expenses for salaries and related expenses,
$238,078.
General government expenses, $131,504.
Construction, maintenance and improvements,
$140,200.
Public safety, $332,227.
Capital improvements, $169,000.
Charles Canniff, 327 Tarpon St., requested that future
budget formats include side-by-side comparison to actual
revenues and expenses for the current year. Mayor Chuck
Shumard said plans called for doing that in the future.


Island Players open
Oct. 3 with
'An Inspector Calls'
The Island Players opens its 49th theatrical season
Oct. 3 with "An Inspector Calls" by J.B. Priestley.
The production features Rob Prescott, Sam
McDowell, Martine Shandles, Debra Keller-
McCartney, John Dicks, Mona R. Upp and John

days and one hour before each performance. The
theater is at Gulf Drive and Pine Avenue in Anna
Maria City. Call 778-5755 for information.


Budget approved

in Bradenton

Beach
By Paul Roat
With little resident fanfare but some dispatch,
Bradenton Beach City commissioners approved a rev-
enue and spending plan for the fiscal year beginning
Oct. 1.
The process that began last June in marathon work-
shop meetings concluded last week in less than 25
minutes. Commissioners unanimously approved a
$1.62 million budget and a millage rate of 2.5508, a
sum that generates $366,029 in property tax revenue to
the city. A mill is $1 for every $1,000 of assessed value
of real property, less any exemptions.
The 1996-97 budget for Bradenton Beach was
$1.53 million.
Although the property tax rate is up a little more
than four percent from the rollback rate the multi-
plier needed to bring the same amount of revenue to the
city as last year based on increased property assess-
ments the actual millage number for 1997-98 is
down from the previous year's 2.5954.
The budget is mostly a hold-the-line spending plan,
with no sweeping changes in any departments. Slight
raises for employees are built into the budget, based on a
salary increase agreed to several years ago and determined
by the employee's longevity and cost of living increases.
There are three additional positions included in the
budget, though a code enforcement officer for the
building department, an extra person within the public
works department and an additional policeman, bring-
ing the force to nine. Two additional categories of
employees were also added: a part-time grants writer
and a police lieutenant position.
lHighlights of the city's spending plan for the next
year include:
Administrative, $294,469. Included in this part of
the budget are raises for commissioners and the mayor,
although a "program" portion for those office holders
was deleted. The mayor will now receive $800 a
month, commissioners $500.
Police, $467,212. New to this part of the budget
is $1,000 in "confidential funds" for undercover drug
buys to facilitate arrests.
Planning and development, $138,314. This de-
partment was removed from the general fund category
- independent from ad valorem taxes or the other rev-
enue which is used to run the city as the new build-
ing fee increase is anticipated to totally fund the build-
ing department.
Building permit fees were increased last month
from $8 for every $1,000 of construction value to $19
per $1,000.
Streets and roads, $185,701.
Sanitation, $216,764. This department is also in-
dependent from the general fund, receiving revenue
from the city's garbage collection fees.
Besides revenue from property taxes, the city re-
ceives funds from a host of state and local taxes and
franchise fees.


Holmes Beach

passes $2.2

million budget
By Pat Copeland
Islander Reporter
Despite protests from several residents, the
Holmes Beach City Commission last week passed a
$2.2 million budget with a 2.25 millage rate.
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.
Former Commissioner Billie Martini kicked off the
protests, maintaining "This budget and red tide have
much in common they both smell."
Martini objected to a contribution of $5,000 to
Solutions to Avoid Red Tide, as well as the police
department's patrol boat and personal watercraft.
She also called for a return to last year's millage rate
of 1.75.
"The two free boats are costing us personnel
wages, maintenance and the loss of a patrol officer
from our streets." she continued. "They are patrolling
waters that are already patrolled by the state and
county. I suggest we pull the plug and sink the Holmes
Beach Navy."
Residents Bill Davis. Sue Normand and Mary Kay
Adams also objected to the village increase. Adams
said the commission should learn to prioritize rather
than telling the city departments. 'What do you want?
Okay we'll fund it.'"
Resident Bob Jones told Davis, who has com-
plained about the police department's computer expen-
ditures. that any citizen with specific knowledge should
volunteer his services to the department.
Resident Harriet Jenkins objected to the millage
increase, the police department's planned purchase of
video cameras for patrol cars and hiring a full-time
marine officer.
"Why is the police department in a small commu-
nity being budgeted as though they were policing New
York City or Los Angeles?" she asked.
"We have local policing and it is an indulgence and
it costs a little bit more money," countered Frank
Derfler. "It's a very good thing. It allows the police to
respond quickly and in a personalized manner, and it
allows people to be treated like people rather than
cattle."
Derfler was also in favor of hiring a full-time ma-
rine officer.
"The mayor presented this budget to us in June,"
Commissioner Luke Courtney noted. "We've had
hours of meetings going over every line of it, we've
trimmed it where we thought we could and we've
talked to the department heads about their requests.
It's not like we're not listening but we've heard it all
before and have taken it into consideration. To the
best of our ability, we've decided this is what needs
to be done."

Anchorage property owner


asks for citizen input


By J.C. Higgins
Islander Correspondent
Robert Byrne, the new owner of the former Anchor-
age restaurant property, offered a welcome change of pace
at the most recent Anna Maria Commission meeting.
"I will be a resident of Anna Maria and I want my
neighbors to be proud of this outstanding location,"
Byrne said of his land acquisition at Pine Avenue and
Bay Boulevard. "I want to know what the citizens
would like to see there. Some shops? Some residences?
I really want to hear from you.
"Please call me at 778-8340 so we can get acquainted
and share ideas," he told the audience at city hall.
Byrne hopes to increase the tax base on the prop-
erty from $700,000 to $5 million. However, he faces
obstacles in getting the project off the ground.
He will need variances and zoning changes.
His plan must be in agreement with the city's
comprehensive plan, and probably will need Florida
Department of Community Affairs approval for the


comprehensive plan changes.
And, said Byrne, "I would appreciate commission
advice on what I should do with the old grease traps on
the property."
Tom Turner, chairman of the Anna Maria Planning
and Zoning Board, advised Byme. "I think the first thing
you should do is come before the board as soon as possible
with a preliminary plan. Our next meeting is Oct. 27. It's
important to get started because it can take 15 months to
get into conformity with the comp plan."
Commissioner George McKay added, "This is a
wonderful opportunity for the citizens to take an active
role in our future. The outcome of this development
will have vital long-term impact and benefits for us all.
Please call Mr. Byrne with your ideas." McKay urged.
"But, we must get started as soon as possible to satisfy
the state requirements."
Byrne's demolition of the former Anchorage res-
taurant is completed, with the last of the debris hauled
off and the site cleared.

Commission seeks citizens' help on cell tower law


By Pat Copeland
Islander Reporter
The Holmes Beach City Commission last week asked
its citizens for help in drafting an ordinance regulating the
construction of cellular phone towers in the city.
"The purpose of the moratorium is to give us the
opportunity to lay out groundwork and set standards to
change the land development code and the comprehen-
sive plan," Mayor Bob VanWagoner said.
He said the commission must decide whether to
hire a consultant, work with adjacent communities,
appoint a task force or hire a technical specialist.
VanWagoner asked City Attorney Patricia Petruff
if the city can change the code after a tower has been
approved.
"Each commission is allowed to review its code
and make whatever policy decisions or changes it feels
are necessary to further the interests of the citizens of
the city," she replied. "That happens all the time."
The mayor said he felt it was important to hire a
consultant.
Commissioner Carol Whitmore disagreed, saying
the commission should first look at draft ordinances
from the Town of Longboat Key and Manatee County
to see if they can be adapted and seek help from com-
munity members.
Commission Chairman Don Maloney agreed with
the mayor and noted that Longboat Key's ordinance
focuses on putting towers on buildings.
Petruff noted that Longboat Key's ordinance also
includes provisions for stand-alone towers. She further
noted that the county's ordinance is "very, very rough."
Commissioner Ron Robinson agreed with Whitmore
saying, "We don't need outside help."
Commissioner Luke Courtney said he doesn't favor
spending money on a consultant if it can be avoided, but
the commission should investigate the cost.
"A consultant who will give us a boiler-plate ordi-
nance is not worth the money," he said. "We're elected
to make the decisions here."
"A consultant has been through the process,"
VanWagoner protested. "The commission doesn't have

Citizens initiate referendum on tower


Five qualified voters declared themselves a
petitioner's committee in Holmes Beach last week and
initiated a referendum against the construction of a cellu-
lar phone tower at Smith Realtors, 5910 Marina Drive.
Committee members Joan Perry, Tom Buehler,
Joseph Bracken, Edith Whyte and Jane Early took their
petition to the city clerk for certification. Once the pe-
tition is filed, the ordinance to be reconsidered is sus-
pended from taking effect.
The group's petition seeks the repeal of the special
exception ordinance on the tower's construction, con-
tending it does not meet all the standards required for
a special exception use. It must be signed by 10 per-
cent, or 377, of the 3,768 qualified voters who voted in
the last regular city election.


According to the city charter, the commission has
30 days to repeal the ordinance after the petition is
determined sufficient by the city clerk.
If the commission does not do so, the question goes
to voters in a regular or special election not less than
60 or more than 90 days after the petition was deter-
mined sufficient. If the majority of the voters oppose
it, the ordinance is repealed.
Committee member Joan Perry said Monday that
the rainy weekend put a damper on gathering signa-
tures, but members have been out in force since the sun
resumed shining.
"We have close to 200 signatures and there are lots
of petitions being circulated." she said. "Eighty percent
of the people we've talked to have signed the petition."

"It's a glaring problem," said Anna Maria Vice
Mayor Doug Wolfe.
According to Wolfe, the Anna Maria Island
Community Center is operating on unauthorized
city property, and somehow it must be brought back
in bounds.
The City owns the property at the Center loca-
tion and leases it to the not-for-profit agency.
"When the Center applied for a permit last
April for internal modifications to build a conces-
sion stand, it necessitated a new survey of the prop-
erty," Wolfe explained. "The survey shows the

The commission directed the mayor to check the

Courtney suggested that the planning commission

suggested the city commission work with the other Is-
land cities through the Coalition of Barrier Island

pertinent information will be at city hall and at the Island

Pierrette Kelly, executive director of the Center,
was unaware of Wolfe's comments. "The center was
started in 1960 with a 100-year lease of city prop-
erty," she said. "I've been here since 1989 and have
never experienced a problem in that time."
Kelly took the opportunity to talk about the ac-
complishments of the Center. "I hope this doesn't
have a negative impact on us. We have represented
our city well."
Wolfe said the situation must be addressed
soon.


Anna Maria millage rate
finalized at 1.70
Anna Maria's 1.70 millage rate for fiscal year
1997-98 is now official, following the second reading
of the required ordinance.
The percentage by which this property tax millage
rate exceeds the rollback rate of 1.6111 mills, is 5.5180
percent.
One mill is $1 for every $1,000 of assessed value
of property, less any exemptions if applicable. The
rollback rate is calculated to determine what millage
will produce the same amount of revenue to the city
as last year from property taxes, taking into account
any increases in assessed value.
Included in the Anna Maria budget summary for next
year is anticipated revenue of $380,242 from these taxes,
which is 35.5 percent of total annual revenue for the city.
The remaining funds come from local and state sales,
gasoline and other taxes and fees.


the notification letter sent by his office to adjacent
property owners on Sept. 16. These inaccuracies were
noted by Van Cleave in her efforts to put a hold on the
pipeline application until the citizen group's side of the
story can be considered.
Van Cleave's letter contains a corrected list of sur-
rounding property owners, some of whom were appar-
ently not listed on the application and who did not re-
ceive the notification letter.
She said there is also a problem with a possible
mismailing of several letters to the U.S. Fish and Wild-
life Service rather than to the affected property owners.
Thirdly, Van Cleave included information on two
similar projects that were denied in 1991 and 1993. She
also takes issue with Batcheler's stated position that
there was an overwhelming majority of Anna Maria
citizens in favor of the pipeline project, and his admit-
tance that he felt pressure to approve the project as soon
as possible because of that support.
Van Cleave pointed out that nine of the 11 adjoin-
ing property owners were contacted and only one fa-
vored the pipeline. The opposing eight have gone on
record at Anna Maria city hall.
Since the city commission meeting, Van Cleave
has contacted Southwest Florida Water Management
District in Venice to begin an opposition process on the
state level. In her Sept. 24 letter to Darryl Flatt,
Swiftmud surface water permitting manager, she pre-
sented a detailed analysis of the three major issues
comprising the citizens' opposition to the pipeline
project:
Environmental concerns the environmental
advantages of a swale drainage system instead of the
city's preferred pipeline system.
Cost concerns the cost advantages of a swale
system already in place over a new $82,000 pipeline.
Inconsistencies in data contained in the pipeline
application outdated maps and aerial photos, and an
incomplete listing and notification of area property
owners.
Van Cleave also pointed out in the Swiftmud let-
ter that the proposed pipeline project is in conflict with
the adopted comprehensive plan for Anna Maria.

City cracks down on Center
The City of Anna Maria apparently got its nose out
of joint the beginning of this year when the Anna Maria
Island Community Center sought to reconstruct the con-
cession stand next to the Little League field.
Public Works Director Phil Charnock demanded en-
gineered plans, a site plan, survey, health department ap-
proval and a host of other requirements and the Center
withdrew.
Charnock claimed other structures existed, assuming
they were not permitted due to a lack of records to the
contrary and not shown on the city's survey of the Cen-
ter property.
The community mostly backed the Center, the city
backed Charock.
After the Center abandoned its plans, the city ordered
a new survey at its expense to update the city file, evi-
dently hoping to resolve issues of existing structures on the
Center property.
Now it appears fences in existence for many years and
even the tennis courts encroach on what Commissioner
Doug Wolfe terms unauthorized city property. But the
non-profit Center has a 100-year lease from the property
owner the city.
How do you spell retaliation?

Veto, Veto
Holmes Beach Mayor Bob VanWagoner has surely
earned the tenacity title of the week.
There haven't been many vetoes for situations in the
past in Holmes Beach politics. In fact, then mayor, no\\
City Commissioner Pat Geyer said her veto of a resolu-
tion opposing a megabridge at Manatee Avenue in 1 Q)3
was the "first ever" recorded in Holmes Beach.
The mayors in Anna Maria and Bradenton Beach
don't have veto power albeit they may wish for it.
Mayor Bob is pulling out all the stops. His first veto
of his now 17-month term came three months after his
election in July 1996 on a fence ordinance.
In August, VanWagoner vetoed a special exception
approved by the commission for a GTE cellular tower at
Smith Realtors.
Commissioners voted 4-1 to override the veto. But
VanWagoner pulled a trick out of his proverbial hat: He
refused to sign the site plan application in the apparent
hope of stalling the process while citizens have begun a
referendum petition to halt GTE's plans.
But there's more. He's vetoed the contiguous lot or-
dinance that's been in the works for months and we
couldn't agree more with his reasoning the same of-
fered over and over again for maintaining the present or-
dinance by the city's legal counsel: increased density.
In fact, we almost agree on the cellular tower with
some slight differences. If we have to have a cell tower,
we think the city should build its own to meet police and
fire district needs. Negotiations with cell service provid-
ers for leased space on the tower could prove profitable
and leave GTE hanging in the breeze. Hail the chief.

Fisherman's treatment by
authorities uncalled for
Whether you voted for or against the net ban, ev-
eryone should be made aware of the incident that took
place the morning of Sept. 5.
A long-time commercial fisherman, who I know
very well, was out in his commercial boat with a com-
panion heading home from Sarasota. As he was head-
ing north, the sheriff' s helicopter started following him
and continued to do so until the fishing boat came to the
canal near my house. The fisherman's intentions were
to tie the boat up and walk to the house to have break-
fast, as he had done many times in the past.
The incidents that took place after that were abso-
lutely uncalled for and would make anyone sick to their
stomach. It was totally ridiculous.
After the fisherman continued to sit in his boat for
several minutes with the helicopter still overhead, he
decided rather than walk to the house he would go back
to the dock. He was afraid the helicopter would follow
him to the house and upset me as well as my neighbors.
With that, the Florida Marine Patrol came up the
canal and started questioning him. He explained what
he was doing and why he and his companion were
there. The patrol then asked him and his companion to
move to the back of the boat. The fisherman asked if
he could sit in his chair because his back was bother-
ing him and they said no. The fisherman said, "I can't
even sit in my chair?"
He was then told he was under arrest. In the mean-
time, at least six to seven police cars came down the
road near the canal and the officers headed down to the
boat. Even the marine patrol officers had their arms up
until they were identified. The marine patrol officers
had already handcuffed the fisherman. When the au-
thorities went to change the fisherman's handcuffs, he
was told, "they'd break his wrist if he moved it."
I can't believe the way the fisherman was treated.
You would of thought he'd murdered someone. He was
not even caught with any fish.
What has happened to our rights as human beings?
Our freedom?
No one deserved to be harassed the way the com-
mercial fisherman was. He can't even take a pleasuIre


ride in his boat without being gawked at and harassed.
I spent the entire day back and forth from Port Mana-
tee until he was finally released after 6 p.m.
The whole situation was disgusting and as the fish-
erman stated to one of the police officers, "When we
are all lined up in front of the Big G for the final judg-
ment, He will certainly know who's done right and
who's done wrong and I really feel with all my heart
and soul that it won't be the fishermen hanging their
heads."

Island poet's health improves
I am writing on behalf of my father. Bud Atteridge.
the Island Poet.
He is recovering remarkably well since he was
moved into the Baptist Retirement Center. I have been
able to visit him twice a day, thanks to his being so
close to my home.
I have watched him improve from a bedridden, lethar-
gic person to someone now being able to eat solid foods,
get around on his own power in a wheelchair, play cards,
checkers, and at long last, write his poems again.
Please pass on to your readers that dad has been
swamped with letters wishing him well from all over the
country. He wishes he could write back to all of you, but
he hasn't reached that point yet. He expressed how much
of a lift all of you have given him in a very trying time of
life for him. He appreciates it very much.
As family, I also want to thank all of you. God
bless you, and I hope dad will be able to keep you in
poems for years to come.
Any letters sent to me at 153 Museum Rd.,
Arcadia, LA 71001 will be given to dad on my visits.
Bill Atteridge, Arcadia, La.

THtOSE WEE THE BAYS
Part 2, Will and Mabel and Gladys
by June Alder


The old Bean home on the north end of Anna Maria Island was built so close to the
water's edge (across from Egmont Key) that it had to be moved inland several times.
It burned down in 1915. The woman in the picture is probably Mary Bean Hall with
the family dog Buddy, who is said to have been killed by a rattlesnake.


GRANDMA BEAN'S

SAD FATE


In a 1988 interview Gladys Bean
Holdstock, daughter of Mabel and George
W. "Will" Bean (son ofAnna Maria pio-
neer George E. Bean), told how her father
married Mabel just after the Spanish-
American War of 1898, fulfilling the
deathbed wish of her sister. Will's first
love. It was not fated to be a happy mar-
riage-that was apparent to Gladys early
on.
Gladys blamed her mother. To Gladys
her father could do no wrong. Now go on
with the story:

Q. Your father grew up in Tampa,
didn't he?
Yes, with six brothers and sisters. I
remember the old family home in Tampa
that Grandpa Bean built [around 1883.
shortly after the Beans arrived in Tampa
from Connecticut]. It was on lower
Franklin Street near old Fort Brooke that
had protected the people from the Indians.
They lived downtown, the Bean family,
right in the center of the city.
Grandma Bean died there of yellow
fever [she was buried in Tampa's
Oaklawn Cemetery]. It was in 1887 when
Daddy was 12 years old. She took care of
all those sick people, she just went right in,
that's how she caught the fever. Oh. she
was so good.
Aunt Mary, she took care of the falm-
ily after Grandma died, as young as she
was only 10 years old. She was a won-
derful woman, too. Religious as she was,
she was full of humor and such fun. Later
[1893] she moved with Grandpa and a
younger brother and sister to Anna Maria.
And when Grandpa died in 1898, she and
her husband Wilbur Hall stayed on the
homestead.
Q. What do you remember about the
days when you first got to know Anna


Maria Island?
I've seen pictures of myself with my
five cousins on Grandpa Bean's dock. I
was four years old then, so it must have
been 1903. I was just three weeks
younger than my cousin Miriam Hall.
[Miriam Hall Murphy, the sole surviving
Hall child, born on Jan. 22, 1900. is now
living in Bradenton.]
Daddy was an engineer. He had his
own electrical business when he was still
in his teens and helped put electricity in
the Tampa Bay Hotel that Henry Plant
built [1890]. We lived at the hotel when
I was about five. He was two or three
kinds of an engineer and while he never
did much as a marine engineer, he re-
newed his license every year. he was so
proud of it. At one time one of his older
brothers. Uncle Frank, was on one ocean.
Hal was on the Mississippi, and Uncle
Cecil was a steamboat inspector.
When the Beans came over to this
country, to New England, seven brothers
came and every one was a sea captain.
And all of Daddy's brothers went to sea.
At one time Uncle Frank was on one
ocean, Hal was on the Mississippi, and
Uncle Cecil was a steamboat inspector.
They stayed in the business and while my
Daddy never did, he always was proud of
being a marine engineer.
He was mayor of Port Tampa City
when he was very young, because we
moved to Tampa when I was two years
old which would have been about 1902.
He was postmaster for Tampa from 1904
to 1913, then he was for 18 years Repub-
lican national committeeman from
Florida.

Next: Pioneering on
Anna Maria Island


In 1890 George "Will" Bean
helped to install electrical wiring
in the Tampa Bay Hotel. Two
decades later Bean transformed
his father's north Anna Maria
Island homestead into one of the
Florida Gulf Coast's first resorts.

Island cities discontinue copy request forms;

'illegal' is how Sunshine Law describes practice


Call it "Form 100" or call it convenience, but the
.judge calls it illegal.
It has been the practice in all three Island cities
to require completion of a form prior to accommo-
dating public record requests.
Along with difficulties experienced by The Is-
lander Bystander which necessitated legal action to
obtain copies of documents from the City of Anna
Maria in August and September, it was learned that the


"copy request form" required by the city is illegal.
Florida's public records law does not require a
party requesting public records make the request in
writing or in person.
In fact, "The Government-In-The-Sunshine
Manual" states that if custodians want requests for
copies in writing, they must write it themselves.
Anna Maria's Copy Request Form includes two
additional requirements that do not comply with
Florida's open records law.
Anna Maria's form asks the party requesting
copies to allow "two working days for copies in ex-
cess of 10 pages."
The manual states the only delay allowed is the rea-
sonable time allowed the custodian to retrieve the
record and delete any portions which may be exempt.
According to Dick Shelton. executive director of
the Florida Press Association, that means whatever
time it takes the clerk to walk to the file and pull out
the material requested.
Exemptions include such matters as current litiga-
tion and certain employment records among others.
According to the statute, a record custodian must
honor a request for copies of records which is suffi-
cient to identify the records desired, whether in
writing, over the phone or in person.
Further, a person requesting access to or copies
of public records may not be required to disclose his
name, address or telephone number.


Manatee Circuit Judge Paul Logan ordered that
the city furnish records to the newspaper without re-
quiring a completed City Copy Request Form and
that duplication of public records is not subject to the
approval of the mayor another illegality noted in
the Anna Maria form.
City Clerk Peg Nelson said the city has discon-
tinued use of the form following the legal action by
the newspaper.
Nelson denies the form has been in current use,
however both Nelson and Public Works Director
Phil Charnock insisted on signed, completed Copy
Request Forms from the newspaper prior to fulfill-
ing copy requests in August, prompting the suit.
Bradenton Beach reports they discontinued use
of the form "some time ago."
"Form 100," a form similar to Anna Maria's, has
been required by Holmes Beach prior to completion
of copy requests.
Holmes Beach's form also required the addi-
tional illegality of approval by the mayor prior to
fulfilling requests.
Initially, clerks at Holmes Beach City Hall said
they still use the form and that it is available on the
counter along with citizen handouts. City Treasurer
Ann Mitchell was not aware the form is illegal, but
on checking said none were available on the counter.
Mitchell said she doesn't recall using Form 100 since
Clerk Leslie Ford took a leave of absence in August

You say you have troubles and nothing goes right,
And your money disappears 'cause prices are out

And the kids shoes are so worn their feet show

And Cousin Min says she is coming to live with

And you don't know where your next meal is com-

And you can't sing for your supper 'cause you
can't even hum.
But you couldn't have troubles worse than ours if
you tried,
'Cause last night our television just up and died.

Island Baptist

church pastor

retires sort of
By Jim Hanson
Islander Correspondent
The Rev. James M. Metts Jr. built his congregation
from 34 to around 1,000, did $1.8 million worth of con-
struction at his church, and it isn't enough.
He's retired now, sort of, but his 17 years as pastor of
the Island Baptist Church were about as eventful as a
minister's years get.
When he came here in 1980 the little church on Gulf
Drive at the south end of Anna Maria City was housed in
cramped quarters built when the church was founded in
1950. There was a small sanctuary, old Sunday School
rooms, old fellowship hall.
His first Sunday he preached to a full congregation of
34 people. But it expanded steadily and impressively.
Why?
"Well, I don't know, I just preached and more and
more people came."
Nine years ago the old buildings just couldn't handle
it any more, and Metts put a building campaign into effect.
He gathered up $1 million and put it into a new sanctuary
that seats 600.
It wasn't the only thing that got built the congre-
gation grew until in the winter season he's had to have two
Sunday morning services to accommodate the worshipers.
The triangular church is so situated that "when I
preach I stand in Holmes Beach and the people are in
Anna Maria."
A year ago last June the new Fellowship Hall was
finished, with kitchen and hall downstairs and adult edu-
cation classrooms on the second floor. The cost was
$800,000, and Metts still frets about the mortgage.
He did it all with people, he explains: "The people are
just wonderful."
From another tiny start he reached out to teach large
Bible study sessions, too. His first Bible study attracted a
total of six people. Ten years later that had grown to 300
a week.

Local tribute to Viet Nam war


"It's a tribute to Viet Nam veterans, protesters,
parents, everybody involved and the vets like it."
So runs the experience of Island sculptor
Woody Candish, who with his son Jesse built a
Fourth of July bamboo memorial to "all partici-
pants" in the Viet Nam War.
It stands in Candish's front yard at 207 N. Bay
Blvd. in Anna Maria City and will remain at least
through Veterans Day, Nov. 11.
"A lot of people come by and seem to approve,"
said Candish. "One veteran of the war knocked on my
door and asked me if it meant the same to me as it
meant to him, and explained it looked like Viet Nam,
and I said sure and he liked it."
Other Viet Nam vets have come to his door or
otherwise approached him to discuss the sculpture
and "not one felt slighted that it is also for protest-
ers against the war.
"I just feel that the war was not a good thing for
the country," Candish said, noting that he is neither
veteran nor protester. He said he was physically
disqualified for service at the time of the war that
tore the U.S. apart in the late 1960s and early '70s.
"Fifteen or so good friends were killed there, and
this is for them, too."
Candish sculpts in all media, has shown in most
of the Anna Maria Island forums and has pieces in
several venues, including his "Surfing Waiter" that
has stood in the Beach Bistro for years.


"Those studies were to reach people who were not in
church," he said. "That's over now. No Fast Eddie's, no
Bible study."
He had the classes in the old restaurant building, and
not only in the Anna Maria Island Fast Eddie's. "I taught
in Ed Porter's restaurants up and down Florida, but only
once a month instead of weekly." On Anna Maria, the
classes were every Thursday.
His wife was active in the church too, until she be-
came ill a few years ago. Their two children are grown,
married and gone.

An Island Baptist committee has begin the search for
a new pastor, an admittedly large task.
Metts felt called to the ministry in 1954 after military
service, he recalled. He grew up in Mississippi, spent three
years in the Air Force after dropping pilot training because
of illness. Then it was Mississippi Baptist College for four
years and the New Orleans Baptist Theological Seminary
for four more, earning a master's degree in theology.
Before coming to the Island he served the First Bap-
tist Church in Bradenton and a church in Marianna, Fla.
"The Lord has been so good to us," he said. And the
1.ord is not through with him yet.
Now that he has "retired." he is helping to get a new
church going in northwest Bradenton.

having a dispute. The daughter left with friends and
the mother's boyfriend had words with them, said
the report.
The officer was attempting to interview the parties

obstructing the investigation. The officer repeatedly
asked him to be quiet and he yelled obscenities at the
officer. The officer persuaded his friends to take him
home so he wouldn't be arrested.
The officer left the residence and as he was about
to turn onto Marina Drive, he observed the subject sit-
ting in the middle of the road. The officer approached
him and asked him to get out of the street. He refused
and was placed in custody.

his winning, skiing

ways in world meet
By Jim Hanson
Islander Correspondent
From barefoot skiing champion to high among the
wakeboard elite, J.D. Webb of Holmes Beach is headed
for world championship competition in Orlando.
In August the 10-year-old won the national cham-
pionship in barefoot skiing for boys 9 and under; he had
turned 10 by that time, but he was only 9 on Jan. 1 and
that's where the age counted. That competition was in
Houston Aug. 21-23.
Though he won his division he was not on the team
that went on to win the world championship in compe-
tition in France. J.D. no doubt will be a member of the
world team in the next couple of years, said his mother,
Susan; he just has to get another year or two of devel-
opment.
The wakeboard event will be Oct. 17-19. Young
Webb will compete there, as he came up seventh in the
nationals for ages 13 and under and the top eight are
going to the Orlando event.
Father Benjamin, mother Susan and J.D.'s 5-year-
old brother and 7-year-old sister all are members of the
Ski-a-Rees, the local championship water ski group,
and will be in state competition Oct. 27-28 at Cypress
Gardens.

For more information stop by the Center at 407
Magnolia Ave, Anna Maria City, or call 778-1908.

Island Sports

The week
That was ...
By Kevin P. Cassidy


Soccer teams in top mid-
season form
The action was fast and furious as Island Real
Estate and Island Pest Control battled to a 4-4 tie in
Division I soccer Monday night at the Anna Maria
Island Community Center.
S Island Pest Control got on the scoreboard first
when Daniel VanAndle slid in to pick off an errant
pass by the Island Real Estate defense and finished
for a one-goal lead that proved to be short lived.
Island Real Estate came right back when Ryan
Quigley got the ball at mid-field, pushed it around
the defender and out-ran everyone down the wing to
score the first of his three goals of the evening and
tie the score at one all.
Island Pest Control came back with an offensive
push but VanAndle's shot sailed harmlessly over the
goal, resulting in a goal kick for Island Real Estate.
The goal kick allows the defense to restart the action
when the ball is sent over the end line by the offense.
The goal kick started an offensive push for Is-
land Real Estate led by Robert Bonaiuto. He took the
ball in with just the goalie to beat, but Island Pest
Control goalie Luke Jaeger aggressively came off
. his line to smother the ball.
Jaeger punted the ball out from Island Pest
Control's defensive end but Bonaiuto again ended
up with the ball, this time capitalizing on his oppor-
tunity and putting the ball in the back of the net for
a 2-1 lead.
Aaron Lowman then received the ball at mid-
field and made a nice run but lost it on a defensive
steal by Island Real Estate, who then had the ball
stolen back by the Pests.
The ball ended up where it started at
Lowman's feet on the left side of the penalty box.
Lowman finished with a beautiful left-footed shot to
the far corner of the goal to tie the score 2-2.
The final score of the first half occurred when
Quigley intercepted a pass at the top of the penalty
box and placed it in the left corner of the goal for a

3-2 half-time lead for IRE.
The second half produced many chances for both
teams but both teams also got unlucky as four
shots hit the post.
The first real scoring chance came when Island
Pest Control's Lowman made a run down the left
side and passed to an onrushing VanAndle, whose
shot hit the left post.
Moments later, Lowman received the ball and
made a run up the right side and cut back, splitting
two defenders on the play, to hit a shot that bounced
off the inside of the near post. The ball skidded along
the goal and ricocheted off the other post where a
relieved IRE defense finally cleared the ball out of
danger.
The Pests came right back at IRE's defense but
were "saved" when Ben Holt made a stellar stop on
a VanAndle rocket from close range.
The action finally started to go IRE's \vay when
Diego Felipe stole the ball at mid-field and threaded
the needle on a pass to Quigley. whose shot rolled
harmlessly wide. Felipe got the ball back when he
gathered in the defense's goal kick and carried the
ball toward the goal, weaving in and out through the
Island Pest Control defense, but his run ended when

his shot went over the goal.
IPC broke the second-half scoring drought in the
48th minute when VanAndle gathered in a throw-in
and somehow held the ball as several defenders at-
tempted to steal. He poked it neatly into the goal to
tie the score at 3-3.
The tie was short lived, as Felipe found Quigley
in front of the goal with a sweet pass, finished by
Quigley to retake the lead 4-3.
IRE looked like they were going to add to their
lead when Bonaiuto hit a rocket that was saved by
IPC goalie Jaeger. The shot deflected dangerously
away from the goal but Jaeger ran out and pounced
on the ball to snuff out IRE's scoring chance.
With time running out, IPC feverishly worked
the ball forward. Lowman received the ball, cut to
his right where he was fouled and awarded a direct
kick from the 18-yard line. He deftly placed the ball
in the upper left corner of the goal for the final score
of an extremely exciting game.

ter behind Jordan Pritchard's two second-half goals
that broke a 1-1 deadlock.
Pritchard looked like he was going to get on the
scoreboard early in the first half when he beat sev-
eral players in the mid-field and took the ball into the
penalty box with only one player between him and
the goal. That player was Sarah Claussen and she
cleared the ball out of danger with a superb tackle to
keep the game scoreless to that point.
Bones took a one-goal lead at the 12-minute
mark when Longboat Observer's defense was called
for a hand ball in the penalty box. This resulted in a
penalty kick which was hammered into the back of
the net by Lorenzo Rivera.
Longboat Observer came back with an offensive
push on some nice passing between Kyle Dale and
Charlie Woodson but Bone's defense stepped up at
the 18-yard line to turn the threat away.
Bones then went on a counter attack with Rivera,
Max Gazzo and Daniel Miller working the ball to-
ward the Longboat goal and Claussen was again
there to clear the ball out of danger.
Minutes later, Bones was pressuring the
Longboat defense when Claussen stepped up to
again make the defensive tackle and keep the score
1-0 in favor of Mr. Bones as the first half ended.
Five minutes into the second half, Kyle Dale got
the ball during a scramble at the 18, lost the ball mo-
mentarily then slid in to finish at the far post for a
goal and a one-all tie game.
Three minutes later, Chris Wicks made a defen-
sive stop and passed the ball to Sarah Claussen at
mid-field. She cut back to burn the defender on the
play and took it right at the goal, but her effort was
turned back by Bone's defense.
This resulted in a swift counter-attack by
Pritchard, who found Kate Gazzo on the left wing
but her shot went wide of the goal.

After Longboat put the ball back in play with a

back to beat the defender and hit a nice left-footed
shot to the far post for a 2-1 lead.
Longboat then took the ball on the restart and
marched down the field, but Anthony Rosa made a
stellar save on a point-blank shot by Dale.
Bones put the game away when Max Gazzo
found Pritchard in front of the goal. Pritchard deliv-
ered for the last goal of the night and a 3-1 win.
Kyle Dale played a good game for the Observer,
scoring one goal but Sarah Claussen was wreaking
havoc all over the field during the tough loss.

Rivera with one, led the way for the victors on of-

starting with one team in the adult-amateur Florida
Suncoast Soccer League Division II.
The Islanders won the Division II cup.
The club is looking for more kids and parents with
enthusiasm to play soccer against "off island" teams -
and to expand the number of club teams next year.
Speaking of the adult team, on Sunday they
treked to St. Petersburg to play the South Side Jam-
mers at Lakewood Park. The Jammers are rivals
from last year who always play hard and bring out
the best effort from the Islanders.
The game started out with the Jammers main-
taining control of the ball through the midfield.
Their problem was, they couldn't bust the IFC's "no
goal patrol," particularly goalie Lance Bieker who
made several "stellar" saves to keep the Jammers off
the scoreboard.
The referee stepped in for the Jammers to award
a penalty kick when Matt Bowers out jumped their
striker on a play to clear the ball. The Jammer's Ri-
chard Kerr finished the penalty kick for a short-lived
1-0 lead.
Tim Bugna made sure that the Jammers didn't
celebrate too long. He "bulled" his way through a
Jammer defender and the goalie to knot the score at
1-1. The play was set up by Andy Smith who sent the
ball into the box to Kevin Morash who "one timed"

it to an open space where a hard-charging Bugna
shouldered the defender out of the way and ham-
mered it into the back of the net.
The complexion of the game stayed the same
throughout the rest of the half with the Jammers bring-
ing the ball out from their end, only to see the Island
defense turn them away and start a counter attack.
It was during this tenure of the game that Bicker
showed why he's considered one of the best goalies
in the league. The Jammers had been lofting balls
into the goal mouth with little success because
Bicker kept aggressively coming off his line to in-
tercept their offerings.
The Jammer's adjustment was to send the ball on
the ground so that their speedy forwards could run
onto it. This strategy backfired too, as Matt Bowers
came through with his usually strong slide tackle to
start a counter attack for IFC. On a few occasions
however, Bieker was left all alone to stop the offen-
sive player and came out to smother the ball.
In the 40th minute, Neal Wolfrath came in with the
ball with only Bieker to beat. He hit a rocket to the near
post that Bieker got a hand on, deflecting wide of the
goal. Wolfrath however, followed the ball and ham-
mered the deflection back on goal but Bieker made the

Five minutes into the second half,
the Islanders moved the ball out of
their defensive end to Andy Smith on
the left midfield. He lofted the ball to
a streaking Ken Bowers who gathered
the ball in with two Jammer defenders
around him, and deftly placed the ball
into the goal for a 3-1 lead.
The rest of the game saw Jammers
trying to get past a tough Island de-
fense and the locals trying to run time
off the clock.
The Jammers broke through in the
67th minute when they lofted a ball into
the penalty area. Bieker came came off
his line to punch the ball away and out
of the box. The ball went right to Jam-
mer Jerome Charles who lofted it over
the defense and into the goal to bring the
score to 3-2 which is how it ended.

Sailing 'round blessed Florida


By Bob Ardren
Outdoor Perspectives
We Floridians are so blessed.
Having spent most of the past week sailing from St.
Augustine to Venice, approximately 350 miles, I came
home feeling like a tourist.
Imagine that, a tourist in your own home state.
That's the kind of place Florida is, and why most of us
live here. And why so many folks come to visit here.
Three of us Skipper Billy Johnson, his brother
Alva and myself brought "Billy the Kid's" 38-foot
Sabre named Magic around Florida and home. The
skipper and his wife had spent much of the summer
sailing with fellow members of the Cruising Club of
America up in the cold waters of Maine.
Returning as far as St. Augustine from Maine, First
Mate Johnson jumped ship and made room for Alva
and me to complete the return trip. I served as cook and
stood the middle (midnight) watch.
Won't bore you with lot of details, but a few legs
of the trip were unforgettable for example, sailing
south down Biscayne Bay on a Sunday afternoon with
an armada of local boats ranging from skiffs to
megayachts.
To the delight of Magic's crew, there seemed to be
string bikinis everywhere. Maybe it's the Latin influ-
ence in South Florida.
And as I've reported to you before, and must again,
Florida Bay now looks like the old Sarasota Bay on a
bad day. Pea green water, loaded with algae, was ev-
erywhere and we saw very few fishers. In fact, we
didn't even bother trolling our mackerel spoon that had
proved so successful on other legs of the sail because
the water looked so bad.
Truth is, maybe we were a little tired of mackerel
too.
But the next day, coming up the west coast, we
quickly caught another nice batch once the water
turned blue.
Biggest lesson of the trip to this "old" sailor was
that I'm not so old after all. At 57, I thought maybe I
was a little old for extended offshore sailing. You
know, things like being up all night on watch, catching


sleep in three- and four-hour snatches and all the other
duties of just keeping the boat moving.
But my captain, a veteran of numerous Southern
Ocean Racing Series events and a local racing legend,
is 74.
And his brother Alva, who seemed to do most of
the hard, dangerous foredeck work, is 80. So I learned
a lot of things on the trip, and not all of them were
about sailing.

Conservation comes home
Tampa Bay sport fishers are in an uproar over new
proposals that could forbid running "on plane" over the
bay's grass flats. Actually, two proposals are being
studied and a decision on which one to use could come
as early as this week.
Mary Hoppe of the Tampa Bay National Estuary
Program says one proposal will put a five mph speed
limit in nearly all areas of the bay from the shore to
wherever the water reaches a depth of six feet. These
are called "critical-use areas" containing most of the
seagrasses and are where manatees tend to be found.
Marked channels would be exempt from the speed
limit.
A second proposal calls for massive public educa-


By Senior Chief D.M. Bucci
Officer in Charge, U.S. Coast Guard, Cortez
Sept. 2, Boarding. A 21-foot power boat was
boarded in Sarasota Bay. The vessel was found to be
in compliance with all applicable federal laws.
Sept. 2, Boarding. A 22-foot power boat was
boarded in Sarasota Bay. The vessel was found to be
in compliance with all applicable federal laws.
Sept. 4, Search and rescue /assistance. Station
Cortez received a report from a 35-foot fishing boat 40
miles off Longboat Pass that a passenger had sustained
a six-inch laceration on his lower right leg. A Coast
Guard vessel met the boat and transported the patient
to waiting paramedics at Station Cortez.


tion, in effect begging the public not to speed in these
"critical-use areas." Hoppe said the real appeal of the
second proposal is that, in reality, there are only two
Florida Marine Patrol officers on Tampa Bay, and law
enforcement is sketchy at best.
Both options call for restriction of motors near the
warm water outflow at power plants. The fishing is
great there, attracting lots of fishers, but the warm
water also attracts many manatees.
Both options will also make the Hillsborough
River a slow-speed zone from Sulfur Springs down to
Tampa Bay. To help boaters with that new restriction,
a new boat ramp will be built near the mouth of the
river.
The point of all this is to protect both seagrass beds
and manatees. As thousands of fishers now have that
latest rage the high-speed flats boat damage to
the flats has soared. The boats are designed to plane in
very little water, but the truth is, many of the operators
either don't know how or don't care, and prop scars are
the outcome.
The important point here on the Island is that once
this kind of restriction is passed on Tampa Bay, you
can be sure we'll be facing it in the near future too.
See you next week.


Sept. 5, Search and rescue /assistance. Station
Cortez received a report of a boat taking on water in
Lemon Bay. A Coast Guard vessel responded, but the
report was determined to have been a false alarm.
Sept. 5, Boarding. A 17-foot power boat was
boarded in Roberts Bay. The vessel was found to be in
compliance with all applicable federal laws.
Sept. 5. Boarding. A 46-foot power boat was

Rain slightly delays fishing, but clear skies ahead


By Capt. Mike Heistand
Despite the rains, fishers are reporting good
catches of snook, trout and redfish in the backwater.
Offshore angling features grouper and snapper.
Joseph at the Rod and Reel Pier said pier fishers
there have been catching a few snook, redfish and
mackerel.
Angela at the Anna Maria City Pier said anglers
there are catching a lot of mackerel, a few mangrove
snapper, cobia, three sharks and one very large sting
ray.
Annie's Bait & Tackle said that Capt. Dave Pinkham
on the Legend has been catching redfish up to 26 inches
long, snook to 28 inches and big bluefish and trout as well
as mangrove snapper and gag grouper.
Carl at Perico Island Bait & Tackle said wade
fishers have been doing very well with nice-sized trout,
reds and a lot of good-sized bull reds which were re-
leased. Offshore hasn't been too good for fishing, but
there are snook near the beaches.
Capt. Rick Gross said snook fishing was good
before the weekend rains, and should be even better
this week.
Capt. Thom Smith at Angler's Repair reports
good redfish action in Terra Ceia Bay and also some
keeper snook.
Capt. Mark Bradow said he's finding mack-
erel, snapper and even spotted a few tarpon hanging
around. He's also getting into some nice-sized snook
for his charters.

Jack at the Cortez Fishing Center said he's doing
some catch-and-release on some 50-pound jewfish
about 10 miles out. There are also lots of lane snapper
and nurse sharks around in the Gulf, while backwater
action features reds hitting on gold spoons.
Capt. Kurt Morrison and Capt. Jason Hensell on
the Neva-Miss said they're finding 12- to 15-pound
kingfish in 80 feet of water in the Gulf. Best action
comes from trolling gold bombers. They're also catch-
ing red grouper up to 16 pounds in about 100 feet of
water, as well as some yellowtail snapper.
On my boat Magic we went out with Bill and Sue
Waite and limited on redfish before the weekend's
rains.

Capt. Tom Chaya said reds, trout and snook were
his week's best bets.
Bill at Island Discount Tackle said mackerel are
starting to show around the Island and mangrove snap-
per are thick right now along the Intracoastal Water-
way. There are lots of reds on the seagrass flats, and
offshore look for snapper and grouper angling to really
begin to improve.
At the South Skyway Fishing Pier, anglers are
getting lots of mackerel using white jigs or silver
spoons. Snapper are around the pilings, small grouper
off the artificial reef and there are a few flounder also
being caught.
Good luck and good fishing.
