Commission to decide on Key Royale Bridge fix


By Pat Copeland
Islander Reporter
At their next meeting, Holmes Beach commission-
ers will decide on one of two options for repairing the
Key Royale Bridge.
The bridge, which is scheduled for replacement by
the Florida Department of Transportation in 2004, is
termed "structurally deficient" by the agency. Repairs
are necessary to keep it usable until its replacement.

Crosswalk


plan scuttled


by DOT
By Paul Roat
The idea of pedestrian crosswalks on Gulf Drive in
Bradenton Beach has been met with something less
than enthusiastic support by Florida Department of
Transportation officials.
So Island transportation planners are going to ask
"the boss" for the crosswalks Monday at the Sarasota-
Manatee Metropolitan Planning Organization DOT
District Secretary David Twiddy.
Prompted by the Bradenton Beach Civic Associa-
tion, six painted crosswalks are being proposed in the
city. As Lee Hornack, civic association president, has
put it, "The close calls are becoming numerous and a
fatal accident is just waiting to happen."
The proposal calls for the crosswalks to be installed
at Ninth Street North, Cortez Road, Second Street
North, 27th Street, 11th Street North and at the north
boat ramp by Coquina Beach.
Hornack met with Manatee County Commissioner
Stan Stephens, who requested DOT District Traffic
Operations Engineer J.R. Lovell to look into the mat-
ter. "We would not be favorable to placement of any
crosswalks along this section of Gulf Drive," was
Lovell's assessment of the situation.
He said in a letter to Stephens that "placement of
painted crosswalks would not be beneficial in that pedes-
trians will not go out of the way to get to a crosswalk. We
also feel that specifically located crosswalks would lead
motorists to believe that pedestrians would only be in the
crosswalks, and cause them to not pay attention in other
areas where there would, in actuality, be pedestrians.
"In addition, on this section of two-lane roadway,
every additional impediment to the flow of traffic intro-
duced opportunities for rear-end crashes and general dis-
ruption of traffic," Lovell continued. "The painted cross-
walks could create more problems than they solve."
Not satisfied with the DOT response, Hornack re-
quested assistance from members of the Island Transpor-
tation Planning Organization Monday. The group voted
unanimously to have MPO representative Chuck Shumard
bring the matter up to DOT's Twiddy Monday during the
MPO meeting.
"We cannot cave in and say the DOT is almighty,"
Hornack said. "We have to bash on regardless."

Civic association to
co-sponsor forum
The Bradenton Beach Civic Association will
co-sponsor with the Islander Bystander the
Bradenton Beach Candidates Forum on Saturday,
Oct. 25, at 7 p.m. at Bradenton Beach City Hall.
The forum will be in lieu of the
organization's October meeting.
All members and residents of Bradenton
Beach are invited. Citizens may submit candi-
date queries to moderator Bonner Presswood,
publisher of The Islander Bystander, prior to the
start of the forum and mingle with candidates
beginning at 6:30 p.m.


Volkert and Associates Inc., Tampa, said the firm
made a detailed inspection of the bridge and devel-
oped two options for repairs.
"In one, we would put in additional pilings and
support the bridge with those, rather than the pilings
that are there today," Roberts explained. "It has some
drawbacks because it restricts the water clearance
through the span, it would require permitting and it's
more expensive at $112,449."
The second option includes restoring the existing re-


enforced concrete pilings and replacing the rubble around
the base of the pilings at a cost of $77,075. This option will
not require permitting and will give the bridge 12 to 15
more years of life with a minimum of maintenance.
Mayor Bob VanWagoner asked if any other repairs
will be needed before the bridge's replacement.
"There is some other deterioration but we've taken
that into consideration," Roberts replied. "We are pre-

Turtles fare well during '97


hatching season


By Jim Hanson
Islander Correspondent
Although deprived of a favorite nesting beach at
Coquina, the Island's sea turtles came through with a
good season for the propagation of the race.
Altogether, the Island was host to 161 sea turtle
nests which housed 17,091 eggs and sent forth 12,651
baby turtles. That is the count of John Defazio, veteran
of service with Turtle Watch here.
He said Monday that the biggest concentration of
nests was from Manatee Beach south to the Bradenton
Beach city limit, with Bean Point second. Dredging in
Longboat Pass discouraged turtles from coming ashore
at normally heavily turtled Coquina Beach there, he
said, and they apparently just went on north to dig in.

Bridge work underway for
1999 Causeway project
Wondered what all the surveying action is along
Palma Sola Causeway on Manatee Avenue?
It's part of the preliminary engineering work for
replacement of the two bridges along Manatee Avenue
leading to the Island. The $4.136 million project is
planned to begin construction in fiscal year 1999-2000.
The replacement bridges are planned to be low-level.
The surveying work on the two bridges just east and
west of Flamingo Cay is being done by Echezabal Survey-
ing of Tampa. Project management is being done by
Michael Baker and Associates, also from Tampa.
When completed, the new bridges will feature two
lanes of traffic, emergency lanes, roadway bike path and
sidewalk.


This year's hatch was about normal, with some-
what fewer nests than last year but more eggs in each,
he said.
The three-legged mother turtle nicknamed Peg
came ashore many times without nesting, he said.
Turtles dig nesting holes with rear flippers and she has
only one, so the sand has to be just right for her to get
the job done. In one area she tried six spots before find-
ing the right one. Still, she managed two nests.
Orville Clayton of the Longboat Key Turtle Watch
said his group still has a nest to go before he will have
a count on the key's season. He said turtles usually
come back year after year to within a quarter of a mile
of the same nesting area.
Defazio said the Island still has problems with
lights, which can encourage hatchlings to come inland
to their death instead of going to sea from the nests. As
for animal depredation, two nests were looted by rac-
coons at Bean Point and a cat ate a dozen hatchlings in
Holmes Beach.

Anna Maria fees spark disagreements


By J.C. Higgins
Islander Correspondent
There's still much work to be done on the re-
vised building permit fees for Anna Maria.
Building Official Phil Charnock received flak at
a commission work session from all sides, including
disgruntled citizens and members of the city com-
mission.
While it seemed the lowering of plan review fees
from 50 percent to 15 percent would serve to move
the proposed ordinance along, it now appears that
discussions are back to square one.
Charnock's basic position in responding to his
naysayers is, "Look, I thought my charter from the
commission was to research the fee structure and
come up with a recommendation to bring Anna
Maria up to speed, and try to do it staying as consis-
tent as possible with the other Island communities.
It is difficult when you wait so long to fix things,
then are forced to play catch-up."
Opinions voiced often and openly at the
meeting concerned two primary areas: the 217
percent increase in fees (presently $6 for every
$1,000 of construction value increased to $19), and
regarding the calculation method of determining
square footage.
Resident Charles Canniff suggested that these

two issues be addressed one at a time, with careful
consideration as to the overall impact on fee rev-
enue.
"The sore point on the $19 fee is not that it is out
of order," Canniff said, "but can't we bite it off a
little at a time on a graduated basis?"
Commissioner Robert McElheny said he sup-
ports a graduated fee increase.
Regarding the square footage used in the calcu-


lation, Charnock pointed out that building fee calcu-
lations have always been based on the accumulative
square footage of ground floor, storage, first floor,
second floor, third floor, and porch/deck.
Even after Charnock explained that this square
footage was just a factor in the calculation that works
well when multiplied by the state-recommended dollar
rate, many in the audience opposed the method, indi-
cating that the calculation should be based on only
square footage "under air," or possibly adding in deck
space to arrive at a total "living space."
But there is more to this controversy;
Commissioner George McKay again recorded
his displeasure with any add-on charge for plan re-
view, whether 50 percent or 15 percent of the permit
fee.
"It should be covered by the base charge," con-
tended McKay.
Charnock was sent back to the drawing board. In
parting, he pointed out, "Please keep in mind we
agreed to certain assumptions in the revised permit
fee ordinance when we finalized the current year
.budget. I'll make whatever changes as directed by
the commission, but we must remember that the rev-
enue anticipated from building permits is one of our
major income areas that we are counting on for next
year."


Motorists maybe yes, turtles maybe no


By Jim Hanson
Islander Correspondent
A new battle in the old war over sea turtles and
lights appears to be shaping up.
The Florida Department of Transportation plans
to illuminate its new Coquina Beach/Leffis Key/
Gulf Drive interchange with nine "turtle friendly"
lights.
"Oh no!" cried Suzi Fox. "That's awful! Those
are exactly the wrong lights. And that's where we
take turtle nests from over-lighted areas." Fox is the
Island's sea turtle conservation permit holder.
Ever since Manatee County shielded lights at the
Coquina bathhouse last spring, she said, that part of
the beach has been dark enough to transplant eggs
there from lighted areas farther north. "We must
have moved 3,000 eggs there this season because it
was so turtle-friendly."
Sea turtles crawl onto the beach, excavate nests
and lay up to 150 eggs each, but lights can scare
them back into the Gulf before they get the job done.
Hatchlings are geared to head from dark land to the
lighter sea, and lights can misdirect them inshore to
their peril.
DOT engineer Albert Rosenstein said Ace Pav-
ing Co. is pretty far along on widening Gulf Drive,
installing a quarter-mile-long concrete median and
making turn lanes. It is a $180,000 project designed
to give safer access to Coquina Beach and the wild-
life sanctuary at Leffis Key.
Final part of the job will be the lights, he said.
The contractor will have 110 days from the time he

completes the roadwork to acquire the poles, lights
and so on, and five more days to install the lighting.

pared to take care of it. There may still be some
minor maintenance, but that's a continuing problem
and we can't anticipate that."
VanWagoner asked if the load restrictions can be
lifted and Roberts said they can after the firm does
a new load-rating analysis for DOT. Load restric-
tions were placed on the bridge last year after the
city learned of its serious condition.
"When we replace the pilings, will that change
the sufficiency rating on the bridge and lower it on
the list?" Commissioner Luke Courtney asked.
"No, it will still be a deficient structure," Rob-
erts said. "This is just a stopgap measure, not to im-
prove the bridge to keep it from being replaced but
to keep it safe until the funding is available to replace
it. It will still be a substandard structure as far as
DOT is concerned."
It is more likely to be advanced rather than de-


ferred because it's in design and "on the shelf,"
Roberts added.
Commissioner Carol Whitmore said the city has
been told by the Sarasota-Manatee Metropolitan
Planning Organization that because the bridge is not
on a state highway, DOT won't fund the replace-
ment.
"There is a certain amount of money that DOT
gets from the federal government that has to be used
on bridges like that," Roberts noted. "DOT can't use
it on their bridges. That's what's being used for this
bridge."
Courtney asked how long the repairs will take.
Roberts said four to six months, from the preparation
of the construction documents to the completion of
the work. And, the bridge will remain open, he said.
The repairs are being funded through the city's
designated infrastructure fund from the city's por-
tion of a countywide one-cent school tax.


be shielded for turtles, Rosenstein said.
Anna Maria's Fox said that those are the wrong
lights for turtles, that low-pressure sodium has
proven to be by far the best for that purpose.


Holmes Beach

seeks county help

to get buoys

in Gulf of Mexico
Holmes Beach Commissioners have asked Mana-
tee County Commissioners for help in getting buoys for
its Gulf beaches at the request of Commissioner Luke
Courtney.
The buoys would define a no-wake zone 100 yards
offshore. The zone would be patrolled by the Holmes
Beach Police Department.
Since the area is out of the city's jurisdiction, the
city has asked the county for help in coordinating per-
mitting, installation and maintenance of the buoys.
There are state grants available for the program,
Courtney said.
At last week's meeting of the Coalition of Barrier
Island Elected officials, Mayor Bob VanWagoner in-
vited the other cities to join the program.

Florida League of Cities to defend city, officials


By Pat Copeland
Islander Reporter
A large, collective sigh engulfed Holmes Beach
City Hall last week.
City officials breathed easier after learning last week
that the Florida League of Cities will defend the city and
its officials in two lawsuits, both served on the city.
The city and officials, who are insured by the FLOC,
will be represented by Greg Hootman of Sarasota.
GTE Mobilnet and Smith Realtors served the city
and three city officials with a summons due largely to
Mayor Bob VanWagoner's refusal to sign the site plan
for a cellular phone tower at Smith's office, 5904 Ma-


rina Drive. It also cited two building officials' refusal
to process the building permit application and issue a
building permit, as ordered by the mayor.
The three officials, VanWagoner, Public Works
Director Joe Duennes and Building Inspector Bill
Saunders, are being sued both in their official capacity
and as individuals.
A second lawsuit against the city and its police
department was filed by Heathcliff Kryszczuk, who
claimed he was the victim of a false police report.
City Attorney Patricia Petruff noted that "as long
as no conflict arises from the representation of all de-
fendants, Mr. Hootman will represent all parties. If Mr.

Hootman determines there is a conflict between any
defendant, the league will assign a separate attorney to
defend those individuals."
Petruff cautioned city commissioners and officials
about discussing the pending lawsuits.
"It's rather hard for an individual involved not to
discuss the case with family," VanWagoner observed.
"The preference would be not to talk specifically
about the allegations in the complaint with anyone but
your legal counsel," Petruff replied. "I would not want
to see members of the commission sitting down at the
dinner table talking about paragraph 42 and whether or
not they agree with the facts presented. But I certainly
understand you sitting around the dinner table saying,
'I can't believe this is happening to me.'"
Petruff also provided a memo on the public meeting's
law. She noted that they can have litigation assessment
meetings in the shade (not public), but only the litigation
can be discussed. After the litigation is settled, the tran-
scripts of such meetings become public record.

Candidates discuss views of Bradenton Beach


By Paul Roat
Bradenton Beach voters go to the polls Tuesday,
Nov. 4, to elect a new mayor and two commissioners.
Two incumbents face off in the bid for mayor,
Commissioner Connie Drescher and Vice Mayor
Walter "Charlie" Grace.
In Ward 1, incumbent Dan Goodchild is facing
challenger Bill Arnold.
In Ward 2, candidates include Dick Cloutman,
former Commissioner Gail Cole and Cedrick Wilson.
Berneitta Kays was the only person to qualify for
the Ward 3 commission seat, and will take office with-
out challenge when the other elected officials are sworn
in on Dec. 8.
Although candidates for commission must live in
one of four areas of the city, all registered voters may
select from all of the candidates on their ballot.
Residents may meet the candidates at a political
forum Thursday, Oct. 23, at Bradenton Beach City
Hall, 107 Gulf Drive N. Doors open at 6:30 p.m. for a
"meet and greet" with the candidates, and the forum
will begin at 7 p.m. The session is sponsored by The
Islander Bystander and the Bradenton Beach Civic
Association.
The following background and goals of the candi-
dates. Each candidate was also asked a different ques-
tion relating to current city issues, and all candidates
will be given the opportunity to respond to all of the
questions during the forum.

MAYORAL RACE
Connie Drescher
Connie Drescher, 58, was elected to the commis-
sion two years ago and served as vice mayor in 1996.
She is married and has two children, four stepchildren
and eight grandchildren.
She moved to Bradenton
Beach permanently seven
Years ago.
J' Drescher was a mobile
home park manager in
Spenard. Alaska, an em-
ployment counselor in Illi-
*nois, a secretary for an Iowa
congressman, an office
Drescher manager, Realtor, office
equipment saleswoman and
a secretary in the U.S. Department of the Army. She at-
tended the University of Iowa and St. Ambrose Col-
lege.
She is stressing volunteerism in her campaign. "I
want Bradenton Beach to be citizen-friendly," she said.
"Volunteers will be the hallmark of my tenure. I want
to get people involved."
As a commissioner, Drescher said she helped push
for cleaner sidewalks, streets and bicycle paths. As a
candidate for mayor, she said she would like to see
access maintained to the beach and bay, pointing to the
program she initiated to create benches and landscap-
ing at Third Street South as a model of what should be
continued throughout the city.
Islander Question: How can the city generate rev-
enue other than ad valorem taxes to bolster the city's
cash reserves and also pay for future stormwater run-
off solutions?
Answer: "It will take a brainstorming session to
come up with solutions. One area I would like to look
into is franchise fees. We need to look at all of the fran-
chise fees and review the contracts. Last year we rene-
gotiated the water franchise fee, which was 30 years
old, and increased the revenue there. We also have had
a proposal to build docks in the city and rent out space
to boaters, and I think that's a good source of revenue
we need to explore further. I would also like to look at
paid parking at our beaches. Perhaps we could look at
offering a lower parking fee for more people in a car
and therefore reduce some of the traffic congestion on
the Island, too."

Walter 'Charlie' Grace
Walter "Charlie" Grace, 71, has been on the com-
mission for two years and ran lost a bid for mayor two
years ago. He currently has the title of vice mayor. He
is married and has one son and two stepchildren. Grace
moved to Bradenton Beach 10 years ago.
Grace has been a postal carrier and office clerk,
worked in the highway maintenance department for the
city of Cincinnati, was a fighter pilot in the U.S. Air


Force and a pilot and captain with North Central Air-
lines for 29 years. He is active with Coast Guard Aux-
iliary Flotilla 81, where he
served in the past as com-
mander.
As a member of the com-
mission, Grace has been in-
volved in the Florida League
S/o f Cities, Florida Shore and
Beach Preservation Associa-
tion, the Manasota League of
Cities and has served as the
Grace chair of the city's budget

Grace said his goals if elected as mayor include
cleaner streets, alleys and bike paths in the city as well
as improved maintenance, community relations be-
tween the city, commission and police, continued
renourishment of the beaches and stormwater runoff
improvements. "We have too many swimming pools in
our streets and sidewalks," he said.
Islander Question: Should the city begin a curbside
recycling program and should the city continue to pro-
vide residents with "in-house" garbage collection ser-
vice?
Answer: "It looks like we've got about one more
year before we'll be forced into a more intense recy-
cling program. We can't afford $200,000 for a truck for
recycling, and it would probably cost us $300,000 to
$400,000 to get into the business. I've talked to differ-
ent trash haulers, and they can provide us with approxi-
mately the same service at about the same price the
citizens are paying now.
"Eventually we'll get a private company to do our
trash and recycling programs with perhaps a small ex-
tra charge. I believe that will happen in the next fiscal
year."

WARD 1
Bill Arnold
Bill Arnold. 68. is seeking his first elected office.
although he has been a member of the city's Board of
Adjustment for two years. ie is married, has three
children and two grandchildren. Arnold has lived in
Bradenton Beach full time for eight years.
Arnold is retired from
General Motors of Okla-
homa City, where he was a
heavy machinery operator
and conducted emissions
tests on vehicles. He owned
i f and managed a restaurant.
-" Arnold worked in the air-
t. craft and aerospace industry
as an assistant project office
Arnold manager, serving as trouble-
shooter between depart-
ments. He also attended Macintosh Business College
in Massachusetts.
Arnold said planning and scheduling within the
city is a primary goal in his campaign. He is advocat-
ing having a anonymous complaint program estab-
lished that would allow residents to voice their con-
cerns regarding city services. "We could have 1,500 to
2,000 complaints filed," he said, "and with that list
could come up with a master plan for the city of what
to do. There is no scheduling now, it's all done on an
individual complaint basis." With that master list, he
said, the city could better manage maintenance.
Question: Should law enforcement services be con-
solidated on the Island?
Answer: "I don't see any savings in consolidation
unless we went to the Manatee County Sheriff's Office.
I would like to see a feasibility study with the sheriff
taking over the Island to see what costs and savings
would be, and also what kind of services we would get.
We could put the city police cars in storage for a year
and try it out. One question that would have to be an-
swered is how it would come out between the three
cities Holmes Beach is bigger than we are, so would
they get more cars than us?"
(Bill Arnold is not related to current Mayor Leroy
Arnold.)

Dan Goodchild
Dan Goodchild, 48, is seeking re-election to the
commission, having served for one year. He is married
and has lived in the city for five years.


He is a massage therapist and owner of Island
Therapy. Goodchild has worked as a seismologist and
was employed by Contract Drilling and Blasting on the
Island's beach renourishment project in 1993. He has
been vice president of sales with two massage equip-
ment manufacturers, and regional sales manager with
two pewter and silverware sales companies. He served
in Technical Intelligence in the U.S. Army Reserves
and was with the 200th MI Company.
As a commissioner, Goodchild has served on the
board of directors for the Anna Maria Island Commu-
nity Center and is a graduate of the Florida League of
Cities Institute of Govern-
ment.
Goodchild said he
"wants more of everything,
S only better." He advocates
the city applying for more
grants and would like to
have a greater number of
citizens involved in .city
S government.
Goodchild Islander Question: The
city has gone forward with
providing liability insurance for two docks built at resi-
dents' expense at bayfront public street-end property.
Should the city continue this practice, even though
there was an accident involving one of the docks on the
Fourth of July?
Answer: "Street ends are public property and the
city will have to assume liability. Should the city en-
ter into another partnership? Yes. Should the city set
forth stricter guidelines? Absolutely. I believe those
street end properties are one of the city's greatest as-
sets, and people should be able to use those assets, and
coming up with guidelines as simple as installation of
a railing should be considered."

WARD 2
Richard 'Dick' Cloutman
Richard "Dick" Cloutman, 69, is seeking election
to his first elected office after serving as a member of
the city's Planning and Zoning Board for three years.
He is married, has two grown daughters, four grand-
children, and became a full-
time resident of Bradenton
j Beach five years ago, al-
though he has owned prop-
erty in the city for 18 years.
He is a 35-year veteran

ager for the Chevrolet divi-
Cloutman sion with a region that in-
cluded parts of Pennsylva-
nia, Ohio, New York, West Virginia and Maryland. His
duties included regional oversight of dealerships with
sales, service and budget included in the tasks.
Cloutman said he wants "to be a part of the contin-
ued betterment of the community. We need to continue
to get grants to the city, maintain the streets and add
crosswalks and ensure the safety of our citizens. I re-
member what this community was like 18 years ago
when I first came here."
Islander Question: Are you satisfied with the cur-
rent city staff, or would you make any changes?
Answer: "I don't believe there are any immediate
problems, but I believe the proper thing to do is to have
job descriptions for every city employee and depart-
ment head. There should be a job description of all the
staff so everyone knows what is expected of them, with
a review by the department heads annually, with the
review of the department heads by the commission.
That way, everyone in the city would know what is
expected of them. It would be a performance review,
because everyone has to work as a team."

Gail Cole
Gail Cole, 68, served a one-year term as commis-
sioner for Ward 2 and chose not to run for office last
year. He is married and has five children and 13 grand-
children. He has lived in Bradenton Beach for 18 years.
Cole is semi-retired, still serving as a foundry con-
sultant and casting broker. Much of his work in the 50
years he has spent in the metal industry involved mak-

ing patterns for casting applications in the automobile
industry. He was in the U.S. Army and served combat
duty with the First Airborne Ranger Company in Ko-
rea.
As commissioner,
Cole initiated the successful
charter review process. He
also participated in the com-
mittee to review the peak-
demand staffing issue re-
garding ambulance service
on the Island.
Cole said the city needs
to get additional revenues
Cole other than property taxes to
meet the budget. One av-
enue he favored was for the city to pay for recyclable
materials, with a manned drop-off location in the city
where paper, glass and aluminum could be received,
residents would get paid, and the city would resell the
materials at a profit.
Islander Question: Would you favor an
extensionof the share the city receives from Manatee
County's one-cent school sales tax?
Answer: "There would have to be a strong need
that could be substantiated for me to support any exten-
sion. I'm conservative and I hate taxes, but they are
necessary. I would support it if there was no other way
to raise revenue, although I do not favor increasing
property taxes."

Cedrick Wilson
Cedrick Wilson, 32,
is a member of the city's
Planning and Zoning Board.
He is single and has lived in
Bradenton Beach for three
years.
Wilson is director of op-
erations at Bungalow Beach
Resort, where he is in
charge of scheduling, book-
n keeping, budgeting and cash
______control. He also organizes


tour packages with travel agencies and airline compa-
nies. He worked for Sunbird Airways, where he man-
aged 30 reservation agents; Republic Air Travel, where
he managed a staff of more than 85, and Continental
Airlines in the customer service department. He was in
the U.S. Army. Wilson attended classes at Seton Hall
University in South Orange, NJ., and Essex College.
Wilson's goals include continued revitalization of the
city "to maintain the village atmosphere, continuing to
seek grants and encouraging citizens to be involved with
the city. A lot of people have told me they've lost faith in
the people who run city government."
Islander Question: Would you favor extending the
boundaries of the city into the Gulf of Mexico and the
bays to better protect swimmers from boaters?
Answer: "1 would leave things the way they are,
but develop better teamwork with the U.S. Coast Guard
and other agencies so if we have a problem we can get
someone there quickly to intercept it. With better com-
munications with the Coast Guard, Holmes Beach po-
lice and others, I believe what we have is sufficient. If
there is a problem with personal watercraft rentals or
others, I would like to see them held accountable for
their actions."

WARD 3
Berneitta Kays
Bemeitta Kays, 75, was unchallenged in her bid for
commission. She comes from a family of 12 siblings,
is a widow, has three children, seven grandchildren and
six great-grandchildren. Kays has lived in Bradenton
Beach for 15 years.
S. She has worked as a
S. seamstress and "home
mother" in Belvedere, Ill.,
before moving here. Always
involved as a volunteer, she
became active with the
.M i city's beautification com-
mittee, spent more than 100
.hours painting the city fish-
Kays ing pier and assisted in land-
scape projects throughout
the city. She is also involved in a five-year federal
project to monitor and assess debris on the beach.


"My number one objective is to make sure the fish-
ing pier remains a fishing pier," she said. "Everyone
comes here for the beaches, but the people in
Bradenton Beach love that fishing pier. I also want to
keep the beautification projects going. We need side-
walks, but it's a shame to have to take up the width of
the streets for them. I like to think I have lots of com-
mon sense to approach problems."


Officials warn

residents about

solicitors
Anna Maria Island and Longboat Key po-
lice and fire officials have joined in a warning
against telephone solicitors.
"We never solicit by telephone," Anna
Maria Fire Chief Andy Price said.
Price also warned Islanders about per-
sons posing as fire inspectors and charging a
fee to perform inspections of residents and
businesses.
"This has been reported in other areas of
the state," he noted. "The fire department offers
free inspections to residents and businesses
owners and is required by law to inspect busi-
nesses. Call our administrative office at 778-
6621 to schedule an inspection."
Longboat Key Town Manager Bruce St.
Denis, Police Chief John Kintz and Fire
Chief Bob Fakelman advise citizens to be
cautious of solicitors. The town does not ap-
prove of or encourage citizens to contribute
to any organization identifying itself as a
town department, they said.
Price also cautioned residents about callers
offering to come to homes and teach residents
what to do in emergencies.
"We've had a report about this from a Key
Royale resident," he said. "We don't know who
it is or if it is legitimate or not. Please call the
fire district if you receive a call of this nature."

Happy hopeful end of
hurricane season
We've still got about six more weeks of hurricane
season, but it sure looks like the fat lady has begun her
song, Elvis has left the building and we're done with
having to worry about big storms for a while.
How do you spell "Phewwwwwww?"
Hurricane season doesn't officially end until Nov.
30. Although the Atlantic hurricane ace prognosticator,
Dr. William Gray, predicted another active season,
with 10 tropical storms and seven named storms -
three severe it just didn't pan out. It seems the El
Niflo pattern in the eastern Pacific Ocean is stifling
Atlantic storms.
Of course, everything seems to be a trade-off -
weather forecasters predict our winter will be wetter
and cooler than usual.
Happy hopeful end of hurricane season.

'X' on Bradenton Beach
crosswalks
It seemed a good, simple, easy request without
much fuss: Add some pedestrian crosswalks in
Bradenton Beach to avoid having people hit as they
cross Gulf Drive from residential, motel areas to beach
side.
Although we aren't sure the three miles or so of
state road needs six crosswalks at every intersection,
we certainly agree with having some at busy areas -
near Gulf Drive Cafe and Sea Trek, the dive shop,
comes to mind as a pedestrian-heavy area with lots
of foot traffic going both ways across the road.
But the Florida Department of Transportation's
J.R. Lowell has said he thinks crosswalks would cause
more trouble than they are worth, would cause more
rear-end collisions and generally "not work."
We have to agree with Bradenton Beach Civic
Association President Lee Hornack in his assess-
ment that pedestrians and motorists coexist just fine
on St. Armands Circle with the busy shopping area's
10 pedestrian crosswalks on the circle and the main
arteries.
Will it take a serious pedestrian accident on busy
Gulf Drive before DOT will see the light of day and
make things a little safer for folks on foot?
We, of course, welcome the bike path and the con-
tinuation of the sidewalk to the Manatee Public Beach,
but what's really the plan here?
Are they leading up to something?
We must have missed all those planning meetings,
public hearings and design proposals.

How can two no's make cell yes?
Communities all over America are realizing that they
don't know enough about cell phone technology. They
don't have the proper zoning laws in place to allow or to
regulate the construction of huge cell phone towers.
In order to protect their communities from uncon-
trolled development, Manatee and Sarasota Counties and
many more across the country, have instituted moratori-
ums on cell phone tower construction until they can find
out what they need to know to intelligently plan for the
development of this new technology.
On July 1, the Holmes Beach City Commission voted
to deny GTE Mobilnet's proposal to build a 155-foot cell
phone tower on Smith Realty property in the middle of a
residential neighborhood at 59th Street. The vote was 2-
2, which according to the Holmes Beach Charter consti-
tuted a valid and legal "no" vote.
Good, responsible governing you say? I'm sorry to
say, but no. On Aug. 19, the commissioners decided that
the initial vote was invalid because Commissioner Pat
Geyer was on vacation the day of the vote. They illegally
re-opened the public hearing and hastily took another vote
which passed a resolution for the tower 3-2. Immediately
following, they voted in favor of a cell tower moratorium.
Mayor Bob VanWagoner vetoed the cell tower reso-
lution. Then suddenly, as a surprise to everyone, the veto
appeared on the Sept. 16 agenda and was overridden by
a 4-1 vote. Commissioner Don Maloney had suddenly
changed his vote in spite of the moratorium, which he
strongly recommended. The only commissioner to vote no
was Luke Courtney.
What is going on behind closed doors? How can the
commission vote in the cell tower at 59th Street when they
already voted on the issue before and it was defeated'?
The proposal to build the cell tower at the Holmes
Beach Marina site was voted down simply because it was
too close to homes. The Smith tower will be bound on the
north, south and west by homes just 75 feet from my home
specifically and almost as close to six other homes.
Not one commissioner in favor of the tower at Smith
Realty has given a reason why the 59th Street site was
deemed more appropriate than the Holmes Beach Marina
area also zoned commercial.
What's in store for us next, a few more towers on


other commercial properties which abut residential areas,
high rises, high bridges? I don't think the people of the
Island will sit back and let a few greedy people profit.
The tower will be disaster for my immediate neigh-
borhood. GTE Mobilnet assured us property values will
not go down citing a community's response in Tampa.
What GTE didn't mention was that this neighborhood was
thanking GTE for cleaning up the trash and displacing the
prostitutes and drug addicts who had been loitering where
the tower was built.
Our neighborhood and Island is not like that. I guess
we can thank GTE, Smith Realty and the four commis-
sioners for substantially devaluing our property and lead-
ing the Island down the path of totally irresponsible, un-
regulated development.
We can find an appropriate site for this tower that is
away from private homes and can financially benefit the
citizens of Holmes Beach and not just Smith Realty and
GTE Mobilnet. Please sign the referendum petition now
circulating that will do just that.
Alice Grossman, Holmes Beach
Build castles on another shore
The City of Holmes Beach has many things of which
it's citizens can be justly proud. The weather, splendid
beaches, all contribute to the relaxed gracious living that
we have come to enjoy. In fact, life is so easy, we some-
times just put up with our city rather than get involved.
It appears that it is time for the people to storm the
Bastille, give the city commission a hand and take our
community back; because, we have a mayor who is act-
ing like the biggest nut since Nero fiddled Rome to ashes.
In the case of Holmes Beach, it's more like the "Three
Stooges Go to the Seashore." Were not sure what our
mayor's nickname should be: "Larmy," "Curly," or "Moe."
But, it's certainly time for no "Moe" of VanWagoner.
Any one who is interested in signing or helping in a recall
petition please let us know. We have a few people stand-
ing by and from what we hear, most of the residents are
ready to sign on.
Anyone who refers to the City of Holmes Beach as his
own little fiefdom should find some other seashore on
which to build his little castles and act out his tyrannical
dreams.

TIOSE WERE THE AYS
Part 5, Will and Mabel and Gladys
by June Alder


This photograph in Mabel Bean's collection shows how downtown Anna Maria
- at the crossroads of Spring Avenue and Shad (now Crescent) looked in
1914. Mabel's comments scrawled on front and back reveal her attitude toward
her husband and his partner. Barely identifiable on the front are her words:
"Pioneer Cottage belonged to me, M.W.B., as Cozy Corner did later. Both built
with my money." On the back of the old photo she wrote: "Everyone came to
this store to get the mail soon after the ship came in with it around the noon
hour. It is me on bicycle, Mabel Williams Bean." Finally she scribbled: "Cozy
Corner and the house on Bay Beach were built with money I inherited. Mr.
Roser and G.W.B. beat me out of everything. "


CORAL-COLORED

SIDEWALKS


George Wilhelm "Will" Bean's
dream of a posh resort on Anna Maria
Island crashed in 1917. The U.S. had
been engulfed by World War I and
people were in no mood to buy lots in
Florida. Bean lost everything to
bankroller C.M. Roser and his mar-
riage was failing, too. In an interview in
1988, Mabel and Will Bean's daughter
Gladys Holdstock spoke candidly of her
father's financial and personal
troubles.

Q. Why do you think the Anna
Maria Beach Company failed?
There was a depression that came
along around 1915. It was not a good
time for real estate. Daddy was way
ahead of his time in everything he did.
And then he decided to promote Belle
Aire Estates in Clearwater. I remember
the coral-colored sidewalks he laid out.
But he lost money on other develop-
ments.
I think when he pulled out of there
and moved to New York City, he didn't
have 50 cents to his name he either
had a couple of million, was very rich,
or he only had nickels in his pocket. He
made about four fortunes in his life and
lost every one of them.
While he was Tampa postmaster
and the Republican committeeman,
anyone who wanted a postmastership
anywhere in Florida would have to go
through him. He finally lost his job be-
cause he was selling them, the postal
jobs, you know. Oh, that's politics. I
hate politics. It's really hard for a man
to be honest.
By that time, I wasn't having too
happy a life because Mother and Daddy


weren't getting along. I think my Daddy
always had women on the side.

Q. When did you move to New York
City?
I guess it was when I was about 16.
We lived in a lovely hotel. He'd take
these beautiful girls to the theatre, and
after a while I started to go with them,
especially the one he later married -
she was secretary to an important New
York family. I had loads of fun, they
always liked me.
Now, Mother, she didn't like par-
ties, or party games or party food or
anything. She was very militant. She
went to classes at Columbia University
and preferred to stay in her room and
write. She was working for votes for
women with Carrie Chapman Andrews.
I remember her marching up Fifth Av-
enue. And she was a WCTU person.
Mother would fuss at my Daddy so
much, if he had a bottle of beer, he was
half way to hell. That would make him
so mad he'd go down to his club or
someplace else and he'd really drink.
He'd get sick, he'd have those terrible
headaches.
Mother was a church-goer and I
guess you'd call her a do-gooder.
Daddy preferred his social club rather
than a church and preferred politics to
religion he was a founder of the
Florida Republican Party. Mother and
Daddy, they just didn't have much in
common.

goes to Washington

What's Lurking In

Your Carpet?


_ver
7.


Have you ever thought about the conditions your carpet is sub-
jected to? Your carpet acts like a sink. It collects every spilled ma-
terial, airborne contaminant and tracked soiling that enters your
home or business. Your carpet is designed to hide soiling. By the
time a carpet "looks" dirty, it can have a great deal of contamina-
tion collected in it.
Quite simply, if your carpet acts like a sink, then it filters and col-
lects sources of soil, bacteria, allergens and pollutants from the in-
door environment. These contaminants are part of what makes
your carpet "ugly out" before it wears out. This "collection" and "fil-
tering" process allows carpet to trap contaminants within. And, like
any filter, your carpet needs to be periodically cleaned out.

Art combines with

house in innovative

sales technique
By Jim Hanson
Islander Correspondent
Realtor Ruth Lawler has combined her friendship
with artists and an unusual house into a unique market-
ing technique.
She is presenting an art exhibition of nine artists at
4003 Riverview Blvd. W., in Bradenton for a week in
early November, hoping to draw prospective buyers
among the art enthusiasts she expects to attend.
The show grew out of her friendship with artist
Laura Keats Avery, who arranged for works of other
artists as well as her own to be exhibited.
Other artists in the exhibit will be David Budd,
Woody Candish of Anna Maria, Neil Garrison, Linda
Molto of Cortez, Herbie Rose, Susanna Spann, Syd
Solomon and Leslie Uguccioni.
A reception is scheduled from 2 to 5 p.m. Sunday,
Nov. 9, with music by guitarist John Lawler. The ex-
hibition ends Nov. 15.
The home, designed by architect Carl Abbott, is on
the market for $269,000. Lawler describes it as "a
unique contemporary in a riverview setting, way ahead
of its time when it was built in 1983."
If this marketing approach proves successful, she
will repeat it, says Lawler.

Anna Maria attorney says pipeline permit in order


By J.C. Higgins
Islander Correspondent
In a letter to the Southwest Florida Water Manage-
ment District, Anna Maria City Attorney Jim Dye refuted
the position taken by opponents of a pipeline drainage plan
regarding ownership and easement rights.
The owners of three properties between Pine and
Magnolia Avenues affected by the plan have ques-
tioned the city's property easement rights as stated in
the permit application.
Dye's letter presented a counter position to the
state permitting agency. "The developers of the prop-
erty governed by the plat dedicated all streets, required
utilities, canal, and drainage or other easement shown
on the plat, unless specifically reserved, for the use by
the general public forever," Dye wrote in a letter to
Swiftmud.
"The express language of the dedication paragraph
clearly dedicates the drainage easement to use by the
public. When property is dedicated to the public, the
city takes title to it in trust for the public. Persons who
bought the platted lots take title to the lots subject to the
city's rights in the publicly dedicated area. Clearly, the
city has the proper authority to enter the platted right
of way for the proposed work."
Dye also commented on the temporary construc-
tion easement mentioned on the application. "The city
has entered into negotiations with the affected owners
to obtain the temporary construction easement. We do
not mean to imply by noting temporary construction
easement within the application that these easements
have been obtained already. The city is not asserting
that it has any rights to this property other than what is
shown by the public record."
The letter also mentioned that the environmental
concerns raised by Patricia Petruff, the citizens' attor-
ney, would be addressed shortly by the city's environ-
mental consultant Zoller, Najjar & Shroyer.
Petruff, of the Bradenton law firm of Dye, Scott,
Prather & Petruff, is retained by Carl and Georgia Van
Cleave, Bruce and Patricia Anderson and Richard and
Sue Carey in opposition to the city's pipeline permit
application.


... and city answers pipe plan questions


Amid the turmoil of a pipeline-versus-swale
dispute in Anna Maria, one of the questions raised
by the pro-swalers has been how the pipeline
project could have been commissioned in January
1997, as presented on detailed drawings from the
engineering firm, when the city did not approve the
study until a May 13, 1997, work session.
Anna Maria Building Official Phil Charnock's
response:
"In January 1997 the Bradenton engineering
firm of Zoller, Najjar & Shroyer was contracted
by the city to complete a study and drawings of
the drainage basin in the Pine to Magnolia Av-
enues area. The city paid the engineering firm an
initial retainer of $2,000 in January 1997. Since
that time two additional payments have been
made, bring the total fee for the study and draw-
ings to $9,900.
"Based on the engineering firm's preliminary
work, the commission gave its approval to proceed
with the pipeline project on May 13, 1997. Some
attachments to the permit application reflected dates


prior to that approval due to the preliminary work
performed, and this gave rise to the citizens' ques-
tion. I assure you that everything was, and is, in
order.
"There's been engineering work going on in
this stormwater drainage area for some time." In
May 1996 an outline of a proposal for a 'storm
sewer system behind Anchorage Restaurant' was
received from the Tampa engineering firm of
Kissinger Campo & Associates. At that time the
city commission decided to attempt the work
through a local engineering firm, and managed to
break things off with the Tampa firm without in-
curring expenses.
"Going back to the Anna Maria public works
budget for the fiscal year 1995-96, there has al-
ways been a line-item appropriation of about
$50,000 for the category 'stormwater drainage.'
This amount is not earmarked for specific needs,
but is available for work on current drainage sys-
tems, feasibility studies relating to the systems
and other uses as approved by the commission."


Holmes Beach officials are ready to proceed
with the permitting process to dredge Key Royale
Pass but are waiting for the OK from Anna Maria.
The project is a joint effort of the two cities and
the West Coast Inland Navigation District. Each city
will pay $50,000 and WCIND will assist with a
$150,000 grant.
Holmes Beach's portion of the funding is al-
ready in the budget as part of the city's capital im-
provements expenditures. Commission approval is
not required; however, commissioners are informed


of the progress of the project at various stages.
In Anna Maria, the funds are not budgeted and
commissioners must approve the expenditure and
amend the budget for the project to move forward.
The project was discussed at last week's work ses-
sion, but commissioners could not vote on it.
Holmes Beach Mayor Bob VanWagoner said he
anticipates that the permits will be in place by March
1, 1998, and dredging can begin by May 1.
The dredged spoil will be placed on the south
bayfront in Anna Maria.

By Pat Copeland.
Islander Reporter
Holmes Beach commissioners last week said en-
croachments in the city's rights of way must go, but
they're looking at the problem on a case-by-case ba-
sis.
"This came up because of a complaint about some
big stones in the right of way on 68th Street," Build-
ing Inspector Bill Saunders told commissioners.
"These stones comprise a fence when used in this
manner. We have an ordinance against fences in the
right of way."
Saunders said it's a citywide problem that in-
cludes trees, fences and landscaping, and public works
officials need guidance on how to deal with it.
"People do it to prevent parking," he continued.
"They've put in landscaping and sprinkler systems out
to the street and they want to protect their sprinkler
heads."
Saunders said the department is working on re-
establishing a swale system to improve drainage, as re-
quired by the comprehensive plan.
"When we do that, we're going to have to take


back our rights of way along paved streets," he said.
"But what about now, when we've had a complaint but
we're not ready to create the swales?"
Saunders said there is another situation at 29th
Street and Avenue E in which a resident has poured a
sidewalk in the right of way and intended to put in a
planter. The resident left a patch of dirt 60 feet by 2 feet
with a curb around it and metal bars protruding up two
feet.
"It's just waiting for impalement," Saunders said.
"Joe (Public Works Director Joe Duennes) and I went
over and bent the bars down. Then I wrote a letter and
told him to take it out and I gave him 10 days."
Saunders said the matter is on hold until the city
attorney issues a ruling because it involves "removing
someone's property from city property. It involves our
machinery and our public works employees and I
wanted to find out if we can do it."
"If we have a law, those people should be notified
that they are breaking it," Commission Chairman Don
Maloney said. "I believe that some of them don't know
they are breaking the law and think they are protecting
their property."

vacating easements and alleys.
Petruff said in 1989 her firm was asked to remove all
vacation procedures and if the city wants to vacate any-
thing, the commission must make an individual policy
decision and use the requirements in the state statutes.
VanWagoner asked about making exceptions af-
ter the city has made others move impediments in the
rights of way.
"That could be a problem," Petruff said. "If you
want to have a policy to allow people to utilize the
alleys. I would caution you that it's not normal to have
structures in the rights of way. The thing that concerns
me is why was the alley put there to begin with and
what may be beneath that concrete slab?"
Robinson asked the commission to consider re-
ducing the setback requirements when a property
owner has something in the easement.
Commissioner Luke Courtney said he would not
consider vacating any property or granting people the
right to build structures in easements, but he would
consider a setback change.
Commissioners then debated whether to order
Ksiazek to remove the shed immediately. Ksiazek said
he would abide by the commission's decision.
"Give him 120 days for us to come up with some-
thing," Commissioner Carol Whitmore suggested. "I
want another work session to address the easements
and alleys."
Robinson said there are alleys and easements con-
taining illegal structures throughout the city, but "I
was told nothing would be done until we get the court
suit settled," Robinson said. "Why are we going to
treat this fellow any different?"
Robinson was referring to the commission deci-
sion last year ordering a resident to remove a shed
which straddles a 10-foot-wide platted alley and en-
croaches on private property.
"I would prefer that the city be consistent in en-
forcing all of its ordinances, Petruff said. "If you are
in the process of establishing a policy and wish to pro-
vide some leeway while you're doing that, that's fine,
but you have to do it for everybody."
"Leave it until we decide what to do with all ac-
tivities in the rights of way," Commission Chairman
Don Maloney said.


Cortez Halloween party planned at Center


Ghosts, parades and plenty of food will bring
Halloween to Cortez youngsters Friday, Oct. 31,
starting at 5:30 p.m.
The Halloween party will be at the Cortez
Community Center and is "open to everyone." A
pizza buffet at $2 per person will be available for
people who call ahead (792-7494) and register.
The first Halloween street parade will bring


youngsters in costume through the village from the
Center, 4517 123rd St. Ct., at 5:30 p.m.
An indoor parade for younger children will fol-
low during the main celebration, with treats distrib-
uted to "assure a safe Halloween." A haunted house
"for the daring" will operate from 6 until 10 p.m.,
with tickets $2. Games will be organized for all and
free movies will be shown every hour.


Holmes Beach commissioners said last week they
may consider changing the setback requirements on
city-owned easements and alleys.
The decision came after Adam Ksiazek requested
that the city vacate an easement behind his rental duplex
at 5607 Guava. The city recently received a complaint
about a shed Ksiazek built in the easement. The city al-
lows no encroachments in its alleys or easements.
Ksiazek said he purchased the duplex in 1987 and
it had a metal storage shed behind it. Three years ago
the shed deteriorated and had to be replaced.
"I went to the building department and said I want
to replace the building." he explained. "They said
since I was just replacing it. I didn't need a permit, so
I put up a new building. Earlier this year I got a notice
saying the building was non-conforming and partially
in the easement."
Building Inspector Bill Saunders said the shed is
six feet, two inches into the easement and would have
to be moved 16 feet to meet the current rear yard set-
back of 10 feet.
"The front of the shed is 13 feet, three inches from
the back of the building, so if I had to move it 10 feet
for the setback, there's no room to retain it on the
property." Ksiazek said.
Commissioner Carol Whitmore asked if the city
mows or maintains the easement and Saunders said it
does not.
"The easiest thing to get rid of is right of way,"
Commissioner Ron Robinson said. "Getting it back is
one of the most expensive and difficult things we
could ever run across. I'm in favor of letting people
use the right of way as part of their yard without put-
ting up fences and buildings and that sort of thing."
"The best way to do it is through a right of way
use ordinance and permit, so you have some standards
and criteria and some idea of the kinds of things you
allow to happen in your rights of way," City Attorney
Patricia Petruff noted. "I'd recommend you do it in a
formal way."
She said buildings are very rarely allowed in
rights of way because moving buildings is so expen-
sive and the rights of way usually contain utility or
phone lines.
VanWagoner asked about the city's policy on

Folk music

concerts start

Monday
By Jim Hanson
Islander Correspondent
The folk music concert season is under way, and
Cortez's premier fiddler is prominent on the program.
Friends of Florida Folk will sponsor Michael
Smith, singer and songwriter who wrote "Spoon River"
and "Margaret and the Dutchman" among many others,
Monday evening, Oct. 27.
This concert will be at the Sarasota Sailing Squad-
ron, at the tip of City Island past Mote Marine Labo-
ratory. Others are at Sullivan's Pub in Sarasota and the
granddaddy of them all will be in Cortez.
Jean Hewitt of the Sarasota Chapter of Friends of
Folk said the statewide organization has been promot-
ing music since its inception in 1981, with the Sarasota
unit organizing four years later.
She described the state organization as "a network
of people interested in folk art of all kinds, about half
music with some story-telling, poetry, arts and crafts
and anything folk."
The local concerts began in the Florida Studio
Theater on Mondays, when the theater was dark. When
FST started using the theater Mondays, the folk musi-
cians moved around for awhile and settled in at the
Sailing Squadron eight years ago.
The casual program opens at 7:30 p.m. with
"open mike" giving entertainers who register on a
blackboard a chance to perform in whatever medium
they prefer no rock and roll, but plenty of blues,
country and folk musicians, story tellers and poets.
At 8:30 the feature begins. There is no admission
charge but the organization "passes the hat" and
hopes for enough to pay the $200 cost per concert
and some left over for the main performer. Brian
Symonds of Nokomis is master of ceremonies.
The concerts are usually on the large patio behind
the squadron building, where there is a covered stage.
In bad weather, they move indoors.
The great concert of them all, said Hewitt, is the
Cortez Grand 01' Opry, a fixture there since 1921. Its
star this year, as has been the case for most of the
Opry's years and his, will be Julian P. "Goose"
Culbreath.

He plays the same fiddle on which he first learned
to make music when he was 9 years old. That was 72
years ago.
The concert will feature three generations of
Culbreaths: The legendary Goose, his nephew Richard
playing guitar, and Richard's granddaughter Maxine
Jenkins on spoons.
Goose was a commercial fisherman for decades,
Richard recalls, and was semi-retired by the time of the
1995 ban on net fishing for three miles offshore. Then
he gave his fishing boat to the Florida Institute of Salt-
water Heritage. He still maintains his house in Cortez
and is "strong as ever."

The Island Poet
Time is a very precious thing, it's never here to
stay,
For when you need it most, it slowly slips away.
But some folks just let it go by and never seem to
care,
When they may awake one day and find it isn't any
there.
So do the best you can with the time that's given
you,
And you will be rewarded before your time is
through.
'Cause when you are getting along in years, it's
very plain to see,
As time goes by how precious it can really be.
Bud Atteridge

A note about Bud's condition
Dad is still slowly improving. He is getting physi-
cal therapy and can get out of his wheelchair and take
steps with assistance.
By looking at his poems, one sees that his mind is
becoming sharper all the time.
I've enclosed one of his original copies so you can
see his handwriting. He has come miles from his first
attempt.
We are still getting cards from all over and dad
really loves them. Our best to all of you and thank you
for your support.

Here they come
Ready for the onslaught? Just about everyone is
braced for "season." The last of the vacationers,
Duffy's Tavern and Chez Andre, reopened last week.
Season can now officially begin.
Hopefully traffic will be steady on the roads, mi-
nus gridlock, lines at restaurants will be sufficient with-
out overcrowding, the weather will be beautiful and so
will you.
Beginning of season, the six-month Oct.-March
snowbird portion that is, also signals the beginning of
stone crab season, much heralded by outdoor columnist
Bob Ardren last week.
Being somewhat of an expert at stone crab cook-
ing, cracking and serving, I naturally have my own two
cents to put in on the subject. You'll notice I leave the
catching to others.
I discovered the microwave is terrific for not only
heating up precooked claws, it's excellent for prepar-
ing your own scuba diving rewards, raw claws.
Raw stone crabs are tan, cream and brownish in
color. The "meat" is a pale peach color and runny be-
fore it's cooked, like half-set Jell-O. You know, of
course, that it is illegal to harvest the crab only claws
may come ashore.
Local commercial crab catchers and fish houses are
required to cook their claws prior to retail sale. If you
catch your own, you're looking at raw claws and you
probably have boiled them in the past. Any that you
buy at a market have already been boiled, and often
many batches of claws are boiled in the same water -
a method that can produce a smell I find distasteful.
As a matter of fact, 20 or so years ago, I cooked so
many crabs one season for a commercial crabber, I quit
eating them for nearly 15 years.
Most important, boiling causes a certain amount of
flavor loss, so you can imagine what re-boiling to heat
them up for dinner costs you in savorability.

Depending on the wattage of your microwave, you
can follow the same directions for raw claws as for
fresh ears of corn. In my model, two minutes each,
turning and rearranging, and you wind up with perfect,
yummy claws.
The microwave can produce excellent results for
reheating claws too: manageably hot shells with hot,
moist meat inside. Put claws in a low, flat dish with a
sprinkling of water in the bottom. Don't stack claws.
Cover with a moistened towel and zap for 3-5 minutes
depending on the quantity. Great results, fast.
Now for a sauce. If you've been in this area long
enough to remember the former resort on Longboat
Key, Far Horizons, you probably also recall its excel-
lent dining reputation. Chef Harold Wuelfrath prepared
a mustard-mayonnaise sauce to go with cold claws
that's simple, tangy and delicious. Just add dry, pow-
dered mustard to mayonnaise to taste with a squeeze or
two of key lime juice.
For hot claws, I plunk a dish of sweet-cream (no
salt) butter in the microwave during the last minute the
claws are cooking. Add a dash of Louisiana hot sauce
and a generous, big squeeze of key lime juice to the
butter. Just twirl your crab tips in the dish and let it run


down the "Popsicle."
Popsicle? This may be difficult to visualize, but for
optimum dining pleasure, lay the stone crab claw down
on its side, with the knuckle bent upward, pushing it out
as flat as can be. Smack the flat end of the claw on the
side with a mallet, hammer or other similar device and
also give each of the two knuckles a whack. I use the
side of a small hammer, not the nail banger (head), for
maximum cracked area.
Flip the flat part over and give it another good
whack. Now separate the knuckles from the flat end by
twisting and pulling. Pull the cracked shell off of the
flat end by holding the big tip and twisting and break-
ing the cracked shell away down to the joint. Also, pull
the little tip out and discard.
What you are left with should resemble a Popsicle,
cartilage between two sides of meat and a black and
orange tip for a holder. The perfect sauce-dipping in-
strument.
Mmmmm. Let's hope the season, the catch and the
weather hold out so we can really enjoy this delicacy.
What? Did I forget the knuckles, the absolutely
best part in my estimation? If they're too much trouble
for you. I'll take them.

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


Jessie's cooks
West Coast Cooling
Jessie's Island Store took an early 2-0 lead over
West Coast Cooling and never looked back as they
captured an impressive 5-1 win Monday night in Divi-
sion II soccer action at the Anna Maria Island Commu-
nity Center.
Jessie's was led by Michael Mijares and Sean
Pittman, who each scored two goals on the evening.
They were supported by Bryan Carrera, who scored
one goal and played stellar defense in front of goalie
Kelsea Bachman, who made several strong saves.
Pittman got Jessie's on the scoreboard early when
he beat his defender to score in the sixth minute for a
1-0 lead. Five minutes later, Mijares extended the lead
to 2-0 when he took the ball into the box and hit a nice
right-footed shot, beating the goalie to the far post.
West Coast Cooling came back after the kick off
and nearly halved its deficit when Courtney Taylor
received a throw-in from Blake Tyre and fired a shot
on goal but Bachman was there with a stellar save,
denying Taylor.
West Coast kept up the offensive pressure with
some nice passes from Taylor. First she found Miranda
Phillips making a run up the middle but she came away
unlucky. Taylor then hit Tyre with a pass but he was
turned away on a nice tackle by Carrera.
West Coast finally got on the scoreboard in the 28th
minute when after a save by Susana Van Andel on a
Mijares shot, West Coast went on a counterattack and
scored when Taylor and Tyre worked a give-and-go to
perfection with Taylor finishing to make the score 2-1.
West Coast's goal fired up Jessie's as Mijares and
Pittman went right down the field using short passes be-
fore Mijares hit a rocket to the near post that beat Van
Andel for a 3-1 lead as the halftime whistle sounded.
Jessie's defense kept West Coast at bay for the
entire second half and goals from Bryan Carrera and
Sean Pittman brought the final score to 5-1.
The second game of the evening was a Division I
contest with LaPensee Plumbing squaring off against
Island Real Estate in a game that had first-place rami-
fications.
Early in the game, it looked like Island Real Estate
was the better team as they kept the ball in their offen-
sive end. But they came away empty as Robert
Bonaiuto's shot was deflected wide on a save by goalie
Brandon Roberts and Diego Felipe's shot, after receiv-

ing a short corner kick, went high and wide of the goal.
It was at this-point of the game that Preston
Copeland took matters onto his own feet. Copeland
stole the ball at midfield, cut back past a defender and
out ran the defense down the left wing to finish with a
sweet left-footed shot to and a 1-0 lead for LaPensee
Plumbing seven minutes in.
The next several minutes saw potential scoring
chances go unrealized for both sides but LaPensee was
clearly controlling the flow of the game. They were
doing it with nice short passes between Sky Beard,
Tyler Krauss and Copeland. They worked the ball into
the IRE box and Copeland poked it past the goalie for
a 2-0 lead in the 20th minute.
The last 10 minutes saw Island Real Estate fighting
back. They just missed scoring what would have been a
beautiful piece of work by Felipe, Bonaiuto and Quigley
that started on a Felipe throw-in from deep in the comer.
His throw went to Bonaiuto who one-timed it right back
to Felipe, who then chipped it across the field to the far
post where Quigley headed it just wide of the goal.
LaPensee then took the goal kick to clear the ball out
of their defensive end, but the kick sailed right back to
Bonaiuto, who took it up the left wing. April Berra stepped
up with a superb defensive tackle to thwart the attack.
Next, Camille McCamey brought the ball upfield,
passed to Bonaiuto who knocked it back across field to
Quigley. Quigley sent the ball to Felipe in the box but
his shot was denied by Joey Mousseau in the goal as the


half ended with the score 2-0 in favor of LaPensee.
The second-half kickoff was taken and LaPensee
wasted no time increasing their lead to 3-0 on some nice
passing between Beard, Max Brickse and Krauss that
ended with Krauss putting the ball in the back of the net.
IRE came right back with a goal by Quigley off of
a pass from Felipe to cut the score to 3-1 but Beard
notched a goal for LaPensee to pump the score to 4-1.
Facing a 4-1 deficit, IRE was forced to push for-
ward, which increased scoring chances but left them
vulnerable on defense. The gamble almost cost them
right away, as Ashley Chiles hit a ball through a gap
that Krauss ran onto but Michael Caudill ran back and
made a goal-saving tackle.
Island Real Estate's offensive pressure paid off in the
18th minute when Felipe, Quigley and Bonaiuto worked
the short pass to perfection, culminating with Bonaiuto
one-timing a Quigley offering to cut the score to 4-2.
Two minutes later, Copeland took a throw-in from
Beard to extend LaPensee's lead to 5-2. They almost
scored again seconds later when Copeland beat his man
down the right wing and sent it to Krauss, but Krauss
couldn't pull the trigger before Jeff Comkowycz came
in with a hard tackle to clear the ball out of danger.
LaPensee sent the ball back into IRE's end on a long
punt by Mousseau but Comkowycz was there with an ear-
rattling header to clear the ball. The ball ended up at

Bobby Gibbon's feet, and he made the most of it with a
weaving run through traffic before losing it out of bounds.
Bonaiuto then gathered in the throw-in and and cut
down the wing, carrying the ball all the way to the box
where he beat Mousseau with a "lefty-loosey" to the far
post, cutting the lead to two goals.
LaPensee had another scare in the 25th minute
when Bonaiuto led a streaking Quigley with a pass
down the wing and no defender in sight. That forced
Mousseau to leave the goal and and try to beat Quigley
to the ball. Quigley won the ball, but Mousseau forced
him wide and his shot just missed going in at near post.
LaPensee then sent the ball back upfield to Beard,
who sent it into the box, where Copeland again finished
with his toe to extend the lead to 6-3.
Island Real Estate took the kickoff and worked the
ball up the left wing to McCamey, who hit a nice left-
footed cross to Quigley. He finished to make the score
6-4, which is how it ended.
LaPensee Plumbing, who improved to 4-1-1 with
the win was led by Copeland's four goals and strong
overall play from Brickse, Roberts, Beard and Krauss.
Island Real Estate was led by Bonaiuto and
Quigley who each scored two goals with support from
Felipe, Caudill and McCamey.

IFC adults knot out-of-towner
The Island Football Club's under-8 team made their
debut on Saturday at Braden River's sports complex
against Manatee East and came away with an easy 15-0
win, reminiscent of 15 to 20 years ago, when Islanders
played soccer against teams from across the bridge.
Islander Nick Smith scored six and Joel Mitchell
scored four goals, but the man-of-the-match was
sweeper Spencer Carper with top-form defense.
The Island Football Club adult team took another road
trip last Sunday this time visiting beautiful downtown
Plant City to take on a very tough team, the Pumas.
The Islanders started out playing some of their best
soccer to date as they controlled the ball by keeping it
on the ground and spreading it out wide through the
midfield. They would send the ball forward through the
defense to Ken Bowers or Tim Bugna who managed a
shot in the fourth minute but watched it go wide.
This strategy works fine against most teams but Pu-

mas' sweeper, Martin Southern, was usually there wait-
ing for passes such as those to clear the ball out of danger.
One such save by Southern started a counterattack
for the Pumas, which brought the ball out from their
end using short passes. The ball ended up on Robert
Street's feet, where he sent it to Southern, whose shot
was saved by goalie Lance Bieker.
Bieker wasn't as fortunate in the 16th minute when
David Gutierrez brought the ball up field and found
Michael Southern at the top of the box. Defender Neil
Fellowes was there but stopped. He thought the whistle
had blown. Southern capitalized on the confusion by
turning towards goal and lifting the ball over a hard-
charging Bieker to take an early 1-0 lead.
Fired up by the goal, the Pumas started dictating
the play and getting deep penetration into IFC's de-
fense. On one play, Southern received a great through
ball but Matt Bowers was there with a slide tackle to
turn the threat away.
Bower's tackle started a counter attack for IFC
with short passes between Danny Mitchell, Bill Brickse
and Jeff Nelson but the last pass was just out of reach
and was cleared by Pumas sweeper Martin Southern.
This started a counter attack the other way with
Michael Southern streaking up the middle. Again,
Bowers was there to turn them away.
The Islanders brought the ball back upfield send-
ing it to "Bubba" Bugna on the left wing. Bugna was
fouled, resulting in an indirect kick that Mitchell sent
across the mouth of the goal but nobody could get a
head on it.
The 32nd minute had the Pumas sending a corner
kick into the mouth of the IFC goal but Fellowes was
there to head it clear. It ended up at the feet of Jose
Rodriguez who fired on goal. His shot, partially de-
flected off of the head of Fellowes, came dangerously
close to finding the uppe -left corner of the goal but
Bieker was there for the save.
The half ended with IFC on the attack. First
Mitchell intercepted a pass in midfield but his shot was
off the mark. Then Andy Smith worked the ball to Ken
Bowers who sent it to Nelson. Nelson spotted Rich Bell
running up the right side and hit the ball to him but
Martin Southern was again there with the tackle.

Bell again found the ball at his feet on a breakaway
run but his shot was saved by Puma goalie Daniel
Costellano as the half ended.
The second half was more of the same strong
defense by both teams made good scoring chances hard
to come by. IFC had one good chance when Fellowes
found Bugna with a through pass, but his shot went
wide of the goal.
The Pumas then began an attack on the right side
with a couple of nice runs by Gabriel Salgado, but Bell
was there with the defensive tackle to deny him and
Bieker came up with a spectacular save off a Robert
Street shot from 10 yards out.
The 70th minute saw Bugna taken down in the
penalty box resulting in a penalty kick. Smith's shot
was blocked by Pumas' goalie Castellano to pre-
serve their lead.
With time running out, IFC was forced to start
pushing everyone forward, which left the defense, al-
ready short handed because of Fellowes second yellow
card send, vulnerable to counter attack. Bieker again
came up big with a save on another Street shot.
IFC again pushed forward and almost had the
equalizer on some nice passes between Ken Bowers,
Bugna and Smith but Smith's shot went wide. Pumas
punted the ball out where Brett McIntosh gathered it in.
McIntosh sent the ball forward to Ken Bowers on the
right midfield and made a run forward.
Bowers sent the ball to McIntosh who was fouled in
the box and awarded an indirect kick. Bowers "touched
the ball" for Nelson, who hammered the ball between the
wall of defenders and the near post to tie the score 1-1 with
very little time left. The game ended tied.
Nelson was awarded the Foster's oil can as man-of-
the-match for his timely goal, one that made the long drive
home not quite so long as it would have been with a loss.
IFC is back in action this weekend, with the under-
12 team playing Saturday, Oct. 25, at the Braden River
sports complex and Sunday, Oct. 26, at the Anna Maria
Island Community Center. The adult team travels to the
Sarasota Football Club on Sunday, Oct. 26, to take on
the Aliens at 11 a.m.

Bad news is shallow water good news, sand bottom


By Bob Ardren
Outdoor Perspectives
The State of Kansas' only excursion boat, the
sternwheeler Kansas City Queen, cruised past Anna
Maria and paid a surprise visit to Sarasota last Satur-
day. The captain was as surprised as anyone.
Capt. Lorrie Lynn was bringing the 124-foot boat,
newly renamed the Georgia Queen because it had been
sold, down the Intracoastal Waterway enroute from
Kansas City to Savannah, Ga. He'd piloted down the
Missouri and Mississippi rivers, took the shortcut on
the Tennessee River over to Mobile Bay and every-
thing was going fine as he headed south along Florida's
Gulf coast. Then he reached Sarasota.
Early Saturday morning the boat approached the
Stickney Point Bridge under repair these days of
course only to discover that because of repair work
his boat was too wide to fit through the bridge. So Lynn
did the only thing possible, turning around and pro-
ceeding out Big Pass. That was when he promptly went
aground in that very tricky natural channel.
"The bad news is the water is shallow," is how
"Dockmeister" Wayne Manley at Marina Jack put it.
"But the good news is the bottom is sand." That
means the chances of any serious damage going
aground is pretty minimal.
Lynn tried all of Saturday morning to free the boat,
only to finally damage the ship's rudders in the process.
With that, he called Tug Boat U.S. and local authori-
ties. The U.S. Coast Guard came by to take a look and.
Marine Officer Doug Peters of the Sarasota Police
Department showed up to help out.
"Local folks couldn't have been better," the captain
told me. "Helpful, professional and downright nice.
Tell your readers that, from me."
Lynn's wife, also a licensed captain, and their two
children, along with a crew of five, were also aboard
the boat during its unexpected stop in Sarasota.
But it wasn't the family's first visit here. A couple of
years ago they attended the national convention of excur-
sion boat owners and operators held in Sarasota.
Last I saw of them, the family was strolling up
Main Street, stretching their legs and renewing old
acquaintances with Sarasota. Here's wishing them
good luck with the rest of their trip.

with groans by local crabbers as traps were coming uip
empty all over the bay area. One local dealer reports
that eight crabbers only brought in a total of 80 pounds
the first day of the season. Oct. 15.
But one local crabber did much, much better than
that. He came home with 75 pounds the first day all by
himself. To be more accurate, he came home the first
night with 75 pounds.
Starting promptly at midnight as the season opened
Oct. 15, this crabber donned scuba gear, turned on his
underwater light and worked the bottom of Big Pass.
Later that same night, he worked under a "major local
bridge" gathering crab claws as he poked around the
many pilings.
Dark, dirty and dangerous work, to be sure but
stone crab claws bring a premium price these first days
of the season, and this young man earned every penny
for his catch.

Getting more tropical
Bet you don't know what local agricultural product
produces the highest economic impact per acre. It's tropi-
cal fish a huge enterprise in Hillsborough County.


A recent study shows that over a 50-year period,
tropical fish ponds produce an amazing $11 million per
acre of production. Tropicals are obviously sold as pets,
not food. Statewide, tropical fish farming generates $70
million a year and 150 of the state's 190 tropical fish
farms are in Hillsborough County.
Now it looks as though the industry is going to get
even bigger. The federal government appears ready to
invest $950,000 to build a tropical fish laboratory in
Ruskin, right in the center of the burgeoning industry.
They'll be using buildings recently given up by the
National Weather Service
To be operated by the University of South Florida,
the lab will help fish farmers raise healthier fish and
find new markets for them. One of the latest develop-
ments along that last line is using tropical fish for medi-
cal research at greatly reduced costs.
One of those quiet industries you don't hear much
about (except during cold spells when fish farmers
work as hard as strawberry growers to save their crop),
tropical fish farming is a major employer in
Hillsborough County.
See you next week.

Cobia, kings starting to show up offshore


By Capt. Mike Heistand
The reports of cobia starting to come in is the big
news in fishing this week oh, and the fact that fishing
is superb right now. Look for big reds and snook in the
backwaters, mackerel and a few kingfish offshore.
Dick at the Rod and Reel Pier said pier fishers
there have been catching keeper-sized snook, redfish,
a few mackerel and some nice-sized flounder.
Anna Maria City Pier anglers are catching mostly
Spanish mackerel off the docks.
Jamie at Miss Cortez Fishing Fleet said the four-
hour trips averaged 125 head of Key West grunts and
sand perch. The six-hour trips averaged 60 head of
grouper and mangrove snapper. The nine-hour trips
averaged 10 head of grouper, mangrove snapper and
lane snapper.
Capt. Kurt Morrison and Capt. Jason Henzell on the
Neva-Miss said they're bringing back cobia up to 23
pounds, gag grouper to 12 pounds and Spanish mackerel,
which seem to like yellow jigs. It's been a little windy,
they added, but the fishing has been excellent.
Annie's Bait & Tackle said that Capt. Zack on the
Dee Jay II is doing good with redfish and a few snook.
Capt. Dave Pinkham on the Legend reports he's
been catching grouper, snapper and kingfish.


Carl at Perico Harbor Bait & Tackle said Pete
Fulmer took his granddaughter Kimberly Wells wade
fishing for her first time and she brought back a nice
keeper red and Pete caught a keeper snook. Other wade
fishing action includes trout, a few flounder up in
Palma Sola Bay and you can see manatees moving by
the Palma Sola Yacht Basin.
Capt. Rick Gross said fishing is very good right
now, with snook and reds the best bets.
Capt. Thom Smith at Angler's Repair said he's
getting linesiders and spotties up to 34 inches long in
Miguel Bay.
On my boat Magic we're getting plenty of redfish,
a few keeper snook up to 34 inches long and flounder
that go about 20 inches.
Capt. Tom Chaya said reds, mackerel, some legal-
sized cobia and a few snook were his favorites last week.
At the Skyway Fishing Pier, mackerel are passing
through in the mornings, flounder and snapper in the af-
ternoons and there are still a few sharks working the area.
Bill at Island Discount Tackle said snook reds,
trout, snapper and mackerel are all in the bays right
now while offshore action features grouper, mackerel
and cobia.
Good luck and good fishing.

ONE OF THE NICEST
THINGS YOU CAN DO
FOR YOUR AIR-CONDITIONING/HEATING
EQUIPMENT IS TO CHANGE THE FILTER!
You should check and clean or replace your filter
monthly. When your filter is clogged, you're caus-
ing your equipment to run in an "air-starved" con-
dition. This causes additional wear on the machin-
ery and longer run-time. Longer run-time produces
a larger-than-necessary electric bill.
Our service manager recommends filter mainte-
nance every month when you receive your electric
bill. Check that filter.
With today's higher resistance electrostatic filters
for people with allergies and concerns about "in-
door air quality", you can't clean them too often. It's
one of the few items you can do to extend the life
of your equipment.
Be nice to your air-conditioner
