Attorney general can't settle cell tower issue


By Pat Copeland
Islander Reporter
An opinion awaited from the Florida attorney
general's office to resolve the recent stalemate over a.
cellular tower won't be forthcoming.
Holmes Beach Mayor Bob VanWagoner appar-
ently sought answers to his problems from the wrong
source.
The attorney general's office declined to reply to the
inquiry from VanWagoner, noting, "The attorney general
is statutorily authorized to render opinions on questions
involving the interpretation of state law. Opinions are not
issued on questions requiring an interpretation only of
local codes, ordinances or charters."
VanWagoner's appeal to the attorney general re-
gards a July 1 city commission vote on a special excep-
tion application for a 150-foot tower to be built by GTE


at Smith Realtors, 5904 Marina Drive.
VanWagoner believes that vote, a 2-2 tie, had the
effect of denying the application, which included the
site plan. The motion died for lack of a majority.
In August, commissioners reconsidered GTE's
application and approved it with a 3-2 a vote. However,
in September, VanWagoner interpreted the code crite-
ria to allow him to refuse signing the site plan as
required for continuation of GTE's review process.
VanWagoner pointed to a section of the code
which states, "An application for site plan review may
not be submitted for reconsideration for a period of one
year after the date on which the application for site plan
review has been denied by city commission."
VanWagoner said the July 1 vote was a denial and
GTE cannot resubmit the application until July 1, 1998.
In October, he made the following inquiry to the state

Grant belongs to Anna Maria


By J.C. Higgins
Islander Correspondent
Anna Maria will receive $500,000 in Community
Development Block Grant funds for neighborhood re-
vitalization.
City Clerk Peggy Nelson received word from Betty
Jordan of Jordan & Associates, grant administrators for
the city, advising that allocation of the funds will be-
gin shortly.
Program budget and scope of work as outlined in
the grant application includes:
Administrative (Jordan & Associates), $36,000.
Engineering (Mattauer & Associates), $76,000.
Flood and drainage, $336,000.
Pedestrian malls and sidewalks, $52,000.
In service area 1, a one-block residential neighbor-
hood on Rose Street a block east of Jacaranda Road, the
project will address 700 feet of drainage improvements.


Estimated cost is $46,000.
In service area 2, a four-block residential area on
Spring Avenue from the commercial area on Bay Boule-
vard west to Gulf Drive, the project will address 1,850 feet
of drainage improvements and create 850 feet of side-
walks. Estimated cost for drainage improvements is
$133,000 with $14,000 planned to be spent on sidewalks.
In service area 3, consisting of two streets, Palm
and Hardin, the project addresses 2,450 feet of drain-
age improvements and will create 2,450 feet of side-
walks. Estimated cost for drainage improvements is
$157,000 and $38,000 for sidewalks.
In qualifying for the grant, it was determined that
more than 51 percent of the people living in the three
service areas who will benefit from the grant activities
are in the low- to-moderate income range. Therefore,
a national objective to benefit those in that income
range will be realized.


attorney general's office:
"I respectfully request your opinion on whether
the tie vote in July was a final decision of the com-
mission pursuant to Robert's Rules of Order, thus
preventing any further commission reconsideration
on the GTE site plan for one year, and whether the
process can return to the conclusion of that tie vote,
still ensuring the applicant's rights to appeal that
decision, if they desire."
VanWagoner's request must now be referred to the
attorney for the local government, according to the
state attorney's office.
Following VanWagoner's refusal to sign the site
plan, GTE filed suit against the city, VanWagoner as
mayor and as an individual and the city's public
works superintendent and assistant, as city officials
and individuals.

commissioners in

Bradenton Beach
By Paul Roat
Commissioner Connie Drescher is now Mayor
Connie Drescher as she defeated fellow board mem-
ber Walter "Charlie" Grace in Tuesday's Bradenton
Beach election.
Drescher garnered 193 votes to Grace's 167, or 54

handily overcame challenger Bill Arnold, 243 to 106.
Goodchild will be serving his second term when he is
sworn into office Dec. 8.
For Ward 2, Gail Cole defeated Dick Cloutman

Cloutman's 68.
Berneitta Kays will fill the Ward 3 seat which was
vacated by Drescher in her bid for mayor. Kays was the
only qualifier in that ward.
All candidates will be sworn into office Dec. 8.

Commission questions proposed staff pay hike


By Pat Copeland
Islander Reporter
Holmes Beach Commissioners are seeking jus-
tification for employee salary increases proposed by
Mayor Bob VanWagoner last week.
"The increases were an outgrowth of our annual
budget talks," VanWagoner explained. "The feeling
was that some employees in the administration of the
regular salary program were getting minuscule in-
creases while others, because of classification
changes, were getting substantial ones."
VanWagoner asked the department heads to rec-
ommend changes in pay grades and salary steps.
Those recommendations were reviewed by Treasurer
Ann Mitchell, who put together the proposed
changes. Mitchell also recommended an additional
cost-of-living increase of 2.5 percent for all employ-
ees not reclassified in this fiscal year.
According to the city's current salary step plan,
employees get a 5 percent raise for each of the first
five years, a 1.5 percent raise for six through 15
years and COLA after 15 years. Most employees are
at the 1.5 percent level.
In addition employees get longevity pay of $500
for five-nine years, $1,000 for 10-14 years, $1,500
for 15-20 years and $2,000 for 21 years or more.
The proposed changes would result in an addi-


tional cost of $45,600 $5,685 in administration,
$9,966 in the police department and $12,705 in the
public works department, plus COLA raises for em-
ployees not being advanced a grade or step. The in-
creases would require a budget amendment.

Department heads explain,
commissioners question
Police Chief Jay Romine said when the salary
step plan was adopted a serious mistake was made.
"It was never the intention that this 1.5 percent
was to be locked in for years six through 15,"
Romine explained. "We discussed it at length during
the commission meetings and it was agreed that it
would be changed to six to 10 years and anything
over 10 would be COLA."
He said the commission also agreed to re-evaluate
the plan every three years, which has not been done.
In making his recommendations, Romine said he
compared the city's salary steps with those of local
law enforcement agencies, not with other Florida
cities of equal size, population and tax base.
"The way I have to look at it is, I'm competing
with the other agencies in the county for the same
qualified personnel and I want to make sure I'm pay-
ing an equitable salary," he said.
Romine said the patrol officers with five or more


Boats donated for fire training
The Anna Maria Fire District recently received two boats for use at its training facility behind Station 2 in
Cortez. The 22-foot boat was donated by Galati Marine in Anna Maria and the 28-foot boat was donated by
the Bradenton Beach Marina. One will be used for medical and other marine emergency training. The other
will be used for live fire training, Fire Chief Andy Price said. The training facility was started in 1992. It
includes a cement pad for automobiles used for victim extraction training and an LP tank simulator for gas
tank leak and fire training. Plans include the addition of a trailer to be used for confined space rescue training
and a drafting pit to conduct truck pump tests, as required by the state. Islander Photo: Pat Copeland.


Business blends with art for


new Players performance


By Jim Hanson
Islander Correspondent
The new theatrical season has come, and with it the
revival of an Island Players tradition: co-production.
Co-producing the Players' next offering, "Plaza
Suite" by Neil Simon, will be Ed Chiles and his
Sandbar restaurant in Anna Maria City.
"Co-production is a program to have people in-
terested in the arts lend a financial hand to the the-
ater," said Chiles. "We underwrite part of the ex-
penses of producing the play."
Alice Doeden, a former Islander who has been
active in the Players for years and has ended up in
charge of developing co-producers, said there will be
more of it.
"We used to do it but stopped when the theater
became self-supporting," she said. "Now with the
new building addition, we need to free up money to
pay into the building fund."
"Plaza Suite" will run from Nov. 14 to 23, is
three playlets: One: A suburban couple moves into
the Plaza while their house is painted and get the


suite where they honeymooned. Two: an oft-wed
film producer turns to his childhood sweetheart. And
three: A mother and father try to pry their daughter
from the suite's bathroom to get married.
Director Phyllis Elfenbein announced the fol-
lowing cast: Joy Courtney and Richard Lawall as
Karen and Sam Nash; Kelly Woodland as Jean
McCormick; Michael Grider as bellhop; Woodland
as Muriel Tate with Keith Barnett as Jesse Kiplinger;
Miriam Ring and Gabe Simches as Norma and Roy
Hubley.
Stage manager is Debron Keller-McCartney;
John Flannery is set designer; costume designer,
Don Bailey; and lighting is by Joe Oshry.
Curtain times will be 8 p.m. plus two Sunday
matinees at 2 p.m. The theater is dark Monday. Tick-
ets are $12.
The box office is open from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. and
an hour before each performance during the run of
the play at the theater, at Gulf Drive and Pine Av-
enue in Anna Maria City.
Further information is available at 778-5755.


years of service lose ground in a comparison, be-
cause of the problem with the 1.5 percent that he
discussed previously. This also affects the police
clerk position.
He felt the dispatchers should be advanced a pay
grade because "it's difficult to expect someone to
support himself on less than $17,000 a year, espe-
cially when we are talking about a critical position
that requires a great deal of stress tolerance and ex-
pertise."
He recommended an advance in pay grade for
the communications supervisor and assistant records
clerk and said the salaries of the sergeant, lieutenant
and chief should be examined.
Public Works Superintendent Joe Duennes rec-
ommended an advance in grade for the public works
clerk because of her increased duties with code en-
forcement and the board of adjustment. He recom-
mended a two-step increase for his assistant because
"based on his background and experience, he wasn't
hired in at a high enough step and I rely on him
heavily to make sure zoning restrictions are fol-
lowed."
Commissioner Pat Geyer said she has no prob-
lem with the recommendations.
"We need to be fair to the employees and the
taxpayers," Commissioner Ron Robinson said. "We
need to do a detailed study. The chief pointed out
that when the salary plan went into effect, it was
thrown together in half a day. I don't think that's fair
to the employees or the taxpayers, and I'd certainly
hate to see us repeat that mistake now."
Commissioner Luke Courtney said he wanted to
see more data to justify the recommendations.
"Who are we comparing ourselves to and how
many employees have we lost in the last four years
because of low pay?" he asked.
"The salary program is not simply to keep from
losing employees," VanWagoner replied. "It's to re-
ward individual employees for the responsibilities in
the professional positions they have. I'm proud of
the responsibilities that these departments have as-
sumed since I've been mayor. I've seen their work
load increase. I fully support this."
He said he compared salaries of employees in
Florida cities of the same size, and Holmes Beach is
well below the market. He said it would take time to
complete a detailed study.
Commission Chairman Don Maloney asked
Robinson and Courtney to give him a list of the data
they want and said he'll have it for the next work
session on the subject of pay increases.
In a memo Friday, Courtney said he wanted
comparison information from the other Island cities,
Longboat Key, Palmetto and Bradenton, as well as
other Florida cities comparable in size, budget and
number of employees.

Superintendent seeks Holmes


Beach permit fee increase


By Pat Copeland
Islander Reporter
Holmes Beach Commissioners may soon hike build-
ing permit fees.
The increases were recommended by Public Works
Superintendent Joe Duennes last week. He said they are
in keeping with those adopted by Bradenton Beach and
being considered by Anna Maria.
"The city should get up to speed with the otherjuris-


... and Anna Maria

fees reduced
By J.C. Higgins
Islander Correspondent
Responding to citizen concerns that the re-
vised building permit fees were "too much, too
soon," the Anna Maria Commission tempered
the total cost impact of the proposed ordinance.
The square footage basis for the fee sched-
ule will now be "conditioned space," that area
which is mechanically cooled or heated. Prior to
the change, decks and garages were included in
the calculation.
Another substantial revision was the elimi-
nation of the "add on" fee for plan review.
Charges for this service will now be considered
included in the $19 per $1,000 of construction
value in the base permit fee.
Since a conservative estimate was used in
arriving at revenues in the current year budget,
Anna Maria Building Official Phil Charnock
now anticipates no serious fiscal problems re-
sulting from the changes in the fee schedule. He
previously noted a serious deficit without the
projected income for plan review.
The proposed ordinance will now move to
first and second hearings next month.


dictions around us," Duennes said. "Also as a point of sim-
plification, we have a pretty complicated procedure right
now. Depending on who calculates the fees, it's not al-
ways the same. This simplifies it for everybody and the
contractor knows what he's looking at when he comes in."
The current building permit fee is $19 plus 19 cents
per square foot. The proposed fee calls for a $30 permit
including all work up to $1,000, then $19 per $1,000 of
construction value after that.
The increase will triple the city's current permit fee
income, Duennes said. In the last fiscal year the permit
income was $32,059. With the new fees, the income will
increase by $68,937.
"Are we doing this to do a betterjob?" Commissioner
Ron Robinson asked. "The fees should be equitable. I
don't think the taxpayers should subsidize the building
inspections on new buildings. It looks like it might be
overcharging."
"People who are active and out there creating more
impact on the community are the ones who will bear more
of the burden," Duennes noted. "If it prevents an increase
in the ad valorem because you have more income from the
users, it would seem to be a benefit. By the same token,
we're not trying to penalize the small guy for building a
fence or changing an air conditioner."
Duennes also asked commissioners to adopt the stan-
dard building and electrical codes that were recently up-
dated by the Standard Building Code Congress Interna-
tional. They are updated every three years and the State
Department of Community Affairs expects each jurisdic-
tion in the state to adopt them, he noted.
"At the Governor's Hurricane Conference, they were
very concerned that in a lot of places, specifically in
Homestead and in the Panhandle, buildings went down
(during hurricane situations) simply because the city had
not adjusted the codes to prevent that. The inference was
that if cities do not adopt it, it would be possible for the
insurance companies not to pay (for damages)," Commis-
sion Chairman Don Malonev said.
Duennes said if the city adopts the revised standards,
it will get credit that will result in insurance discounts.

Holmes Beach continues to revise cell tower regulations


By Pat Copeland
Islander Reporter
Holmes Beach Commissioners have been working
on an ordinance to regulate the construction of cellu-
lar phone towers in the city.
In August, commissioners passed a six-month
moratorium on the construction of the towers in order
to develop the ordinance.
The ordinance was drafted by Planning Commis-
sion Chairman Sue Normand after she researched simi-
lar ordinances from local municipalities and the county,
as well as ordinances used in other municipalities


across the country.
The 15-page draft was first studied by the planning
commission, which made several recommendations
including:
Investigate methods of taxing the revenue from
the towers.
Impose an annual renewal fee
Inspect the towers annually
Prohibit ground-mounted towers.
Make provisions for the police and fire com-
munications if the tower is declared obsolete and
slated for removal.


Establish a collapse zone.
Review permits every one or two years.
City commissioners met in two sessions to review
the ordinance and make suggestions. They are still
considering what distance to establish between towers
and between towers and residences.
In the second work session, Mayor Bob VanWagoner
said he favors several elements in Longboat Key's draft
ordinance because they are specific to barrier islands.
Commissioners agreed to hold another session after
Longboat Key passes its ordinance this month and to in-
vite the Longboat Key manager to respond to questions.

A state hearing judge last week postponed a second
hearing on the controversial fuel Orimulsion until Jan.
15. much to the relief of environmentalists who oppose
the fuel's use.
Florida Power and Light officials hope for ap-
proval to burn the fuel at the company's Parrish plant.
Orimulsion, produced by Venezuela, is a mixture of
bitumen, water and an emulsifying agent.
Judge J. Lawrence Johnston first heard the case last
year and recommended approval of the fuel's use.
However, the governor and cabinet, sitting as the
Power Plant Siting Board, rejected the request.
The board was then ordered by an appeals court to
document its reasons for denying the request. In Sep-
tember the board asked that the matter be sent back to
the judge because of improvements and additions to the
original plan announced by FPL in May.
These include reducing pollutants, establishing a
$200 million trust fund for Tampa Bay, funding a $1
million vessel tracking system in Tampa Bay, estab-
lishing a $1 million community assistance trust fund
for the residents of Parrish and limiting truck trips by


Two local organizations based on generosity are
teaming up again to assure the needy of a Thanksgiving
dinner.
All Islands Denominations and Self-Help and Re-
source Exchange expect to provide turkey dinners to 20
to 30 families and singles. The "SHARE packages" will
be distributed between 9 and 11 a.m. Saturday, Nov. 22,
at the Anna Maria Island Community Center, 407 Mag-
nolia Ave., Anna Maria City.
AID and SHARE provide similar holiday dinners at
Christmas and Easter, said AID President Bob Meylan.
In addition, SHARE distributes "affordable food"
boxes monthly from 10 to 1 I a.m. on the fourth Saturday
each month at the Center. Registration for the food is from
10:30 to 11:30 a.m. the first Wednesday of every month
at Tingley Memorial Library, 111 Second St. N.,


using trains for pick ups and deliveries.
Johnston then set a hearing date of Nov. 3, which
environmental groups Manasota 88 and Manatee
County Save Our Bays opposed, saying it wouldn't
give them enough time to prepare their case. The
Manatee County Commission and the Florida Depart-
ment of Environmental Protection also filed objections.
Environmentalists oppose Orimulsion's use, citing
concerns about increased air pollution and spills in Gulf
and Bay waters. They also maintain that Orimulsion is
one of the highest sulfur content fuels on the market.
Other groups have recently joined Manasota 88
and Manatee County Save Our Bays in opposition to
the fuel including Parrish Citizens Against Pollution,
Port Tampa Civic Association, CSX Transportation
and AmeriSteel Corp.
The civic groups are concerned about how the
fuel's use will affect their communities, including in-
creased truck traffic. CSX Transportation, which trans-
ports coal, is concerned that it will cut into its profits,
and AmeriSteel wants FPL to guarantee savings from
its use.


Bradenton Beach.
A SHARE box contains 25 to 30 pounds of food with
a retail value of $25 to $30, which is exchanged for $14
cash and a volunteer service commitment of two hours a
month. The organization was founded in San Diego, Ca-
lif., in 1983 and now has expanded to 26 areas in the U.S.
and Central America.
During the rest of the year AID distributes food do-
nated by churches to clients who are referred by various

How do you know it's fall?
We know how you do it up north flowers shrivel up,
vegetable gardens wither, leaves drop and barren trees
scratch lines across the landscape.
Oh, but, the colors. The leaves on the trees turn fabulous
shades of yellow, gold, red and magenta and every shade in
between. That's how you tell up north.
Then leaves fall and work begins as does winter.
Here in Florida, on the Island in particular, the oleanders
stay in bloom throughout the year and very few trees shed
their leaves. Only frangipani drops all its long, pointed
leaves, leaving thick, angular branches barren until April.
We know it's fall when the winter birds and their two-
legged counterparts, the snow birds, arrive. Another sure
sign is the cool northern wind that follows. The mullet be-
come more active, leaping across the chop in the bay, prac-
ticing for their mating ritual. And with the first cold front, we
take notice of surfers riding boards just beyond the break of
the wind-churned waves.
It's subtle, but for many of us, far more preferred than
frost on the pumpkin and snow drifts.

Another sign of fall
Bradenton Beach has selected its new mayor and two
commissioners. It was a good election with more choices
than recent elections have offered the voters in the southern-
most, rejuvenated city.
As one election ends, another begins just like seasons.
Rumblings, posturing and planning in dark rooms is
ongoing. Everyone's running for mayor. No one's running
for mayor. The mayor's in, the mayor's out. Four-fifths of
the board is in, or out, depending on the day of the week.
Holmes Beach City Commissioner Pay Geyer says
she's in the race if Mayor Bob VanWagoner runs, otherwise
she's keeping her commission seat for the one-year remain-
der of her current term and her vote. In Holmes Beach,
the mayor doesn't have a vote.
Meanwhile, Commissioner Carol Whitmore is giving
consideration to the mayor's race. Her seat is up for re-elec-
tion and she says after several terms on the commission, she
would welcome the administrative opportunity.
During last year's election, Luke Courtney became a
year-long lame duck before the votes were counted. He an-
nounced he would run for mayor at the Islander-sponsored
candidate forum and all indications are he maintains his in-
tention.
Rumor is that Commission Chairman Don Maloney
may be considering occupying the same post. Another story
on the grapevine is that Commissioner Ron Robinson won't
run for re-election.
Who does that leave on the commission? If all the sup-
pose-I-mights all run for mayor no one. And who knows
who will do what until the filing deadline in mid-December.
Anyone for commissioner?

City Hall grass poor excuse for
'government' at work
At this week's Anna Maria City Commission
meeting, we heard Commissioner McElheny smilingly
say, "Mr. Mayor, I know you've taken some flak on the
garden, but I want to congratulate you; the grass looks
very nice." Proudly, Proudly, the mayor responded,
"Thank you."
Imagine accepting congratulations because some-
one else laid and watered some sod and it's green! Of
course the grass looks "nice." It is healthy plant life.
What would it look other than "nice?" Never mind that
it is totally inappropriate for a barrier island, for a
public building in this age, for a water scarce state, for
the democratic political process, for volunteerism, for
government in the sunshine, for anything other than
bland taste in landscaping and political power.
At the same meeting, Public Works Director Phil
Charnock expanded his plans for destruction. Since
he'll have a huge machine to remove trees from the rear
of City Hall to make way for a truck garage (this will
enhance the grounds?), he wants to remove trees from
the "park" as well. And Commissioner McKay is all for
it because he want "another court."
How many garden plants and trees will be destroyed
by those actions? How many hours of volunteers' labors
of love will be negated? How many donated dollars for
plants will be wasted? How much of the intent of late
Mayor Simches' plan to beautify Anna Maria City will be
disregarded? How many fond memories of one of the
garden's initiators will be desecrated?
And are they all gloating with their petty power?
Pity that they can't qualify even for Mr. McElheny's
description of the grass.
Diane Canniff Anna Maria City

Do we need a Publix on Island?
If the arrival of a Publix market on Anna Maria
Island is such a good thing for all of us, why were the
negotiations carried out in such guarded secrecy? And,
why did the owners of Publix deny that those negotia-
tions were underway months ago? Starting a relation-
ship with those it intends to serve by lying to them does
not bode well for any of us.


Lately, I hear that Publix also intends to build a
strip mall which will connect with the Crowder Broth-
ers Hardware store. Is that true? Why don't we ask the
Publix people to comment on that? Will they be more
forthcoming this time?
Publix will, no doubt, claim that a new store will
create more jobs for Island residents and increase our
tax base. But what about the folks who may go out of
business here because they directly compete with
Publix in some areas. There already is a Publix in
Bradenton and one on Longboat Key do we really
need another?
I think those of us who live here have just one
question to ask ourselves: which is more important, a
few more jobs or the quality of life which we presently
enjoy?
John Gilroy, Holmes Beach

Address elected responsibilities
Please send a message to our legislative delegation,
and most importantly Rep. Mark Flanagan: "You asked
for the responsibility of decision for the operations of our
governmental functions when you asked to be elected.
Now, stand up and discharge those responsibilities."
The Constitution of the state provides the direc-
tions that the state government shall be responsible for
providing the resources to operate our schools. You
should not delegate this responsibility back to the coun-
ties to borrow the necessary money to build needed
classrooms. This is a state duty.
The legislature abandoned its lawful duties when
it originally substituted lottery funds for basic state
funds to support educational needs. This substitution
permitted a weak-kneed, spineless legislature to escape
providing taxes needed for school support.
Until the character of the people in the legislature
changes, and those changed characters correct this
original heinous action, our state will continue to suf-
fer the shortfall to education funds. We can only pray
that this change in the character of the members of our
legislature will permit them to fearlessly address their
elected responsibilities.
William S. Mullon, director,
Anna Maria Island Democratic Club

THOSE WERE THE BAYS
Part 7, Will and Mabel and Gladys
by June Alder


Anna Maria beach scene, circa 1916 (note soldiers in the picture). It could have
been long-legged Gladys Bean later to become a Ziegfeld girl at the center.


ZIEGFELD GIRL


This is the final installment of
Gladys Bean Holdstock's tale of "life
with father" George Wilhelm Bean,
who sought unsuccessfully to turn his
father's Anna Maria Island homestead
into "the Florida West Coast's finest
resort." We conclude with a bit about
Gladys's career as a Broadway dancer:

Q. Tell me about your years in
show business.
Oh, I've danced all my life. I was
only four years old when Daddy got an
electrical contract with the Tampa Bay
Hotel. We lived there several years.
They had a wonderful lobby where all
the smart set gathered and Daddy would
take me downstairs and I'd tap dance
for the people. I just loved it, they got
such a kick out of me.
Later on I performed for the tourists
arriving at the wharf at Anna Maria.
I will say this for Mother she
wanted me to make something of my-
self. So she saw to it that I got voice
lessons and studied dancing
When we got to New York it was
the heyday of the Ziegfeld Follies with
its showgirls and stars like Fanny Brice,
Ed Wynn and Will Rogers. I was in sev-
enth heaven.
I went to art school and then I got a
job dancing in a theater. This was the
time of vaudeville, of course. I was so
young, Mother had to wait for me at the
stage door. After a while I won a spot in
one of Ziegfeld's productions and from
then on until I married I just had a great
time. They were making movies in New
York then and I even got some spots in
the moving pictures.

Q. As you look back on it all, how


will you remember your father?
He was a big blond man. He had a
red face because he was thin-skinned
like me. Bluest eyes you ever saw and
six feet tall. He was an excellent sports-
man, he liked to hunt and fish and he
could fit in any place. Everyone thought
he was the most educated college man
they ever met but he didn't go beyond
the eighth grade.
But Daddy was Daddy. One time I
asked him, "Daddy are you more true to
Helen [his second wife] than you were
to Mother?" And he said. "Hell, no!"
That's what he said. He was so bad but
he was funny with it all.
In 1950 he came down to Tampa
from Washington to see me. He had
leukemia and was very weak. He was
still very handsome, women were still
crazy about him.
My husband and I took him to din-
ner at the Tampa yacht club and I intro-
duced him to one of my friends. She
asked him, "How long are you going to
be here, Mr. Bean?" And he took
her hand, lifted it to his lips and said,
"That depends on you, my dear."
Oh, he was charming and fun and
lovable and you couldn't trust him that
far.



A charmer herself, Gladys kept on
dancing in ballroom contests almost
until the day she died in 1995, at the age
of 96.

a new series,
The Drowsy Thirties

Commission to stick to the rules


By Pat Copeland
Islander Reporter
Holmes Beach commissioners have vowed to go
by the book Robert's Rules of Order, that is.
Weary of debates between commissioners and au-
dience members, discussions that digress and introduc-
tions of items not on the agenda, commissioners last
week agreed it's time for a change.
"All our meetings... are meetings of the members
of this commission," Commission Chairman Don
Maloney explained. "They are not town meetings.
Debates at all our meetings should be... debates be-
tween and/or among the elected members of this com-
mission, not between those attending the meetings and
this commission."
Maloney said the order of business at all future
meetings will be as follows:
Agenda items will be listed clearly, so all partici-
pants will understand "why the subject has been placed


Guild's Heritage

weekend
The Eighth Annual Heritage Days Arts and Crafts
Festival, sponsored by the Artists Guild of Anna Maria
Island, promises to be bigger and better than ever. And
the best part is it's this weekend.
The fair will fill the Holmes Beach City Hall field
with more than 100 local and regional artists, commu-
nity booths and lots of great food. Special events will
include a children's art show by 67 fourth-grade stu-
dents from Anna Maria Elementary School entitled
"My Island," Saggy Aggie the clown and face painting.
In addition, a "Garden of Art" by Guild members
will feature artists' demonstrations, sculptures and a
"Tree of Artsy Shoes."
Door prizes donated by local businesses will be
raffled off during the two-day event, Saturday and
Sunday Nov. 8 9, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., both days.
Parking and admission is free at the field 5901

on the agenda."
After the item is read by the chairman, people the
audience will be invited to express their opinions on the
subject.
After all those who wish to speak have spoken,
audience participation will end and the commission
will discuss the item.
"Please don't misinterpret my desires," Maloney
said. "They are not to squelch public participation in
our meetings, but quite the opposite. I continue to hope
that public participation will increase and that a much
wider representation of our citizens will attend our
meetings."
Maloney said there will be no discussion or debate
on items not appearing on the published agenda.
"This is in our legislative procedures," Commis-
sioner Luke Courtney added. "And also when a motion
is made, that cuts out any further public input. It allows
only debate among commission members, which does

Resident Bob Jones took the commissioners to task
for their "attitude" problem.
"When we sit out here, often we see "attitude" that
you all have to one another," Jones noted. "And some-
times you all lack good communications skills and that
makes some discussions go on forever."
Maloney said the problem is because of the Sun-
shine Law, they cannot talk to each other about an item
until they are in session.
"Sometimes it is upsetting and sometimes we do
lose our tempers," Maloney admitted. "I agree with
you, and it aggravates me every time it happens."
What if the discussion is closed to the floor and the
commission brings up another aspect of the issue?
Commissioner Carol Whitmore asked.
The public will have another opportunity at the
next meeting, because anything being adopted by or-
dinance must have two readings, Maloney said.

Island Gallery West to offer
special holiday exhibit

Beach, and is open Monday-Saturday, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.

THE ISLANDER BYSTANDER 0 NOVEMBER 5, 1997 N PAGE 9 1[


Some days are filled with questions


By Don Maloney
Special to The Islander Bystander
According to my old dictionary, a question is an
expression of inquiry that invites or calls for a reply. In
other words I've always assumed people ask
questions because they want answers.
Sometimes, that is true. Sometimes, the asker re-
ally doesn't care what your answer is. Or, other times,
whether you answer at all.
Take the former, for instance. If you've ever flown
on an airplane you'll remember that when you called
for your reservation, the airline person asked: "What is
the phone number where you can be reached?" And,
you'll remember, you gave the number.
What you won't remember is the airline calling
you at that number to tell you that your flight was de-
layed three hours because of a mechanical problem.
Rather than call you, they waited to tell you that news
personally after you drove to the local airport. Or worse
yet, to Tampa airport.
The other kind the sort of question that doesn't
want, need, or even wait for an answer is one like:
"How are you feeling?"
Next time somebody asks you that, like right after
you've tried to return something to K-Mart without a
receipt, try to get the asker to listen to even part of your
reply.
Another one of those no-answer questions is the
one waitresses ask in the middle of a meal that goes:
"How is everything so far?"
The last time a wait person asked me that, she was
back in the kitchen before I could tell her that some-
thing was moving in my iced tea.
Some questions, whether they're asked with a hope
of an answer or not, should NEVER be asked. Like
again in a restaurant, when they ask: "Separate checks
or all together?'
What grinds me about that is what she's really ask-
ing is: "Are you a cheapskate or are you going to pay?"
I'd rather just have the check, or checks, laid on the
table where I could fumble over it later. Then, I'd have
a chance to win; by losing, of course.
There's another kind of question that really doesn't


6 l-ith/ lheparltj

to whImn"Lam

,peak&uy?"

ask anything. It is just a flat outright statement. Like
when you call somebody up and the person answering
the phone asks: "Can I tell him who is calling?"
That's not anything like a question. That is another
flat statement that says if you turn out to he somebody
he'd like to talk to, he is in. If not, it's sayonara.


One of my real all-time favorites is: "Do you mind
if I interrupt?"
You can't even ask that without interrupting.
And another you can't ask is that grammatical
beauty: "May I ask you a question?"
Just asking that is a question. What you really have
to ask is: "May I ask you another question besides this
one?"
Some people ask questions only if they already
know the answer. Like Wife Sarah often asks things
like: "Whose dirty underwear is this on the bathroom
floor?"
Now since only she and I share that bathroom, and
since only my underwear is big enough to cover the
produce counter at a Winn-Dixie store, she could have
guessed. And she did.
Another no-question question of hers is, as we're
going out the door: "You're not going to wear that
shirt, are you?"
Some questions are almost impossible to accu-
rately answer. How about: "Isn't it a nice day?"
When asked that, what can you say? If you say
"Yes," you're actually saying: "Yes, it ISN'T a nice
day."
But, if you say "No," you're really saying: "No, it
isn't a nice day." And two negatives make a positive,
don't they?
And so, I think you are really saying "yes" there
when you say "no." It's probably best to ignore answer-
ing or asking that question.
There are questions that, sadly, you don't hear at
all anymore. Like: "Can I cheek your oil?'
That went out with the arrival of self-service gas
stations.
And how about: "Can I help you?" Have you heard
that lately? And even if you did, were you helped?
Here is the best one which is why I saved it for
last. Actually, it's a tie between two beauties.
They are: "Can you hear me?"
If I couldn't, could I answer?
And then there's that wonderful: "Are you asleep?"
That's like if l asked you now: "Have you read this
far?"

The Island Poet
Mother has this real old purse she carries by her
side,
And many a time I've seen her look at it with
pride.
For if you were to cut yourself, no need to be
afraid,
'Cause mother will dig around in that old purse
and come up with a band-aid.
And should you need a coin or two, I am sure
they will be there,
Along with all your makeup and a ribbon for
your hair.
And when the sweet old lady dies and goes off
in that big hearse,
They will find the keys to Heaven right there in
mother's purse.
Bud Atteridge

Editor's Note: The following note accompanied
this week's poem from "The Island Poet. "
Another poem from dad. He is still progressing
and he even beats me in checkers.
Our best regards.

CORTEZ

CONNECTIONS

By Mary Fulford Green

Senior connections wanted
The Cortez Community Center is trying to connect
with all seniors age 60 and over who may be interested
in a new program, the Golden Years Club. All are in-
vited to the center Monday through Friday from 9 a.m.
to 1 p.m. to be part of some stimulating activities and
events and, best of all, to enjoy dining together. The
center will provide the space while Manatee County
Meals on Wheels PLUS will provide staff to coordinate
activities and a nutritious noon meal, all for a donation
of $3.50 per day.
The center is located at 4517 123 St. Ct. in Cortez.
Interested persons may call 792-7494 from 4-6 p.m. or,
after 7 p.m., at 756-3784. Volunteers are needed for the
program and they will be rewarded with a free meal.
Activities include movies, ping pong, pool, basket-
ball, card games, discussion groups, Bible study and
speakers.

Interesting events
Considering its limited population, Cortez does a
great job of offering some interesting events. For the
first time in decades, there was a community Hallow-
een Party with some funny and frightening goings on.
There was a visit by the centuries-old Cortez sea mon-
ster. Legend has it which is just now being written
- that he or she, we're not sure of the sex, crawled
ashore 100 years ago. Kindly fishers returned the crea-
ture to the bay then, but it came again this year. I won-
der if it was the cause of the October 1921 tidal wave,
which destroyed the half-finished bridge to Bradenton
Beach and all the Cortez waterfront.
Speaking of bridges, we Cortezians congratulate
Save Anna Maria on its renewed hope that there will
be no megabridge to the Island. People still ask how we
stopped the high bridge proposal for the Cortez Bridge.


The waterfront t at the historic village of Cortez. Islander Photo: Bonner Presswood


I always say that there is nothing that people who work
together cannot do.
Of course, it helped that we were in the process of
having the village listed on the National Register of
Historic Places and we had some well-informed sup-
porters from the Island. Our success means that we will
never have that bridge, as federal funds cannot be spent
on a project that negatively impacts a historic resource.
When SAM is ready to celebrate I will do the cook-
ing for a "No New Bridge Party" such as Cortez had.
We cleared $1,500 on our event.

Another Island support offer
We need to connect with Bradenton Beach in get-
ting pedestrian crosswalks for Gulf Drive. Two years
ago all the kids signed a petition which was presented
to our county commissioner serving on the Sarasota-
Manatee Metropolitan Planning Organization. We re-


quested a crosswalk at 123rd Street on Cortez Road so
children who live north and all the residents who live
south of the road can have one safe crossing. We were
given the same reasons for the denial by the Florida
Department of Transportation then that Bradenton
Beach is receiving now. How do other communities
provide for pedestrian safety? Maybe together we can
get some positive action.
Access update
The update on the public accesses to the waterfront
is that Manatee County Planning Department staff has
mailed out a survey to all property owners and there
will be a public meeting at some point to provide data
for future county action. I favor leasing the two spots
to village non-profit groups who can maintain and use

the property for the benefit of all.
Some of us would like to erect a memorial to the
commercial fishers of the last 108 years. Cedar Key,
another historic fishing village, has done so.
Cortezians are also talking about joining in the fight
to save our bays by expressing opposition to Orimulsion
being transported across the bay, where a spill would dev-
astate the waters. The hearing delay until January gives all
of us time to speak out and be heard, showing once again
the strength of "people power."

Supporting a friend
Many of you shared our connection with a long-
time resident, Alan Anderson, who succumbed after a
long battle against pancreatic cancer. Many of you sup-
ported us in our fish fry benefit for him last spring,
where we raised more than $5,000. Most knew him
from his long employment at Star Fish. His long illness
gave many the opportunity to be of service to him and
his wife, Linda, and to show how much they cared. We
know that Islanders join us in grieving his death.

Eatery news
Some exciting news is the Nov. 1 opening of The
Star Fish, the restaurant on the docks of the Star Fish
Co., 12306 46th Ave. Cortez Bait and Seafood, at the
end of 119th Street at the bay, will also provide eating
space for those who want to enjoy the scenic water-
front. Both seafood retail markets offer the best source
of fresh seafood in the area and our ever-delicious
smoked mullet. The opening of Jack's Smokehouse,
under the management of Donald Fulford, has been
delayed until December.
Of course, for shrimp and stone crab, you can buy
from A.P. Bell Fish Co., where the five-pound boxes
of frozen shrimp are the best buy anywhere. They are
fresh off the Gulf shrimp boats. Shrimp saut6ed in gar-
lic butter, served over linguine, drenched with pesto
sauce what a fittin' dish! Add some three bean salad
using our recipe in the new cookbook, "What's Cook-
ing in Cortez," and you do have a meal.

Thanks!
I want to say thank you to The Islander Bystander

Kick off for
shopping season
The homespun art and craft show put on by the
Anna Maria Artists Guild each year in November is
another sure sign fall has arrived.
Staged in the past at the Anna Maria Island Com-
munity Center, inside and out, the show has moved this
year to the field behind Holmes Beach City Hall on
Nov. 8 and 9.
Not a juried, judged, hoity-toity event, the Guild
mixes local craft makers and hobbyists many offer-
ing holiday ornaments and festive home decorations -
and a smithering of fine artists.
Already people are asking at our office if the "man
with log reindeer" will be there, or the "folks with star-
fish snowmen and Santas." We hope so!
Last year's special finds included hand-beaded
anklet socks and a tiara with sparkles and flowing rib-
bons, perfect for a junior princess.
Helen White and MaryAnn Schmidt will be at the
festival for their third year with a booth "chock full of
nuts." Look for them under a Wedebrock Real Estate
banner.
White reported selling more than 200 bags of the
fresh-crop Georgia pecans last year, all benefiting the
Island Players. The nuts are also offered at the Island
Players box office, Pine Avenue at Gulf Drive in Anna
Maria, and at The Islander Bystander office, 5404
Marina Drive, Holmes Beach, until Christmas or while
supplies last.
Another fundraiser at the festival includes the
Anna Maria Historical Society's booth of assorted
memorabilia, books and gift items.
Cross your fingers it doesn't rain and join the fun
in the field you'll see lots of your neighbors and
friends and get a head start on Christmas.

Birdie, Birdie
We've held back the notices of a new arrival at The
Islander Bystander office. This puppy was so tiny
when she arrived, she was likely to be squashed by a
passing "matchbox" car.
Weighing in at 2.2 pounds on her first vet visit,
suggested names included "Kilo" and "Desktop" for
her habit of curling up between the monitor and the
keyboard. Now three months old, she's closer to five
pounds.
While we tried several names on for size, she came
running when we called, "Here Birdie, Birdie." And so
it is. Mostly wheat in color, with a cute little mouth and
a black mask and ear tips, she's named for good friend,

Ted the Head
Theodore Roosevelt was born on Oct. 27, 1858, in
New York City.
When the War Between the States erupted in 1861,
Theodore's mother, Martha, a true Georgia belle,
dreaded the possibility that
her Yankee husband,
Theodore Sr., might cross
sabers with her brothers
who had joined the Confed-
erate cause.
She put her foot
down and demanded that
her husband, a wealthy man,
pay someone to serve in his
Roosevelt place in the Union Army.
He did.
Theodore grew up very much ashamed of his
father's role, or lack thereof, in the War of Secession

and vowed some day to make amends.
His opportunity came in 1898 during the Spanish-
American War when as newly commissioned Lt. Colo-
nel Roosevelt, he helped organize and train his beloved
"Rough Riders," a volunteer cavalry unit composed of
cow punchers, socialite polo players and adventurers
yelling and swinging swords, sabers and machetes.
His dreams of leading a cavalry charge up San Juan
Hill in Cuba against the Spanish Army were thwarted
when it became necessary for the troopers to leave their
horses in Port Tampa for lack of transportation during
the embarkation to Cuba. Only the officers were able
to bring their horses.
Lt. Colonel Roosevelt, mounted on his horse, led
his dismounted troops up San Juan Hill in a resound-
ing victory and he returned home a decorated Ameri-
can hero.
"Cracker, where is this story headed? We all know
that Teddy was elected Vice President of the United
States on the McKinley re-election ticket of 1900 and
became President following the McKinley assassina-
tion in 1901. He also had a toy bear named for him and
was the first American to receive the Nobel Peace Prize
- all besides speaking softly and carrying a big stick."
Well, hold your horses for a moment and I'll tell
you:
You see, the Cracker's paternal grandparents were
such great admirers of President Roosevelt that in 1901
they named a son "Roosevelt" and in 1904 named the
next-born "Theodore."
To shorten the story, the Cracker was begotten in
1924 and christened Gilbert Theodore Bergquist after


his Uncle Ted. The Cracker later begat Gilbert
Theodore Bergquist Jr. who, in due time, begat Gilbert
Theodore Bergquist III, representing almost a century
of Theodores in the Bergquist family.
Coincidentally, the Cracker begat a second son,
Kevin, who shares his birthday with President Teddy.
For those of you who follow the home games of the
Florida State University football team on ABC Televi-
sion, you may have noticed a rabid fan leading the
charge with a shaved head decorated with a garish,
garnet and gold team logo printed on its dome.
He has achieved his 15 minutes of fame among
Seminole fans as "Ted the Head."
You guessed it! Under the war paint he is really
Gilbert Theodore Bergquist III.

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


Action-packed
soccer week
Ben Webb Landscaping surprised Mr. Bones by
a score of 4-1 in a game that tightened up the race for
first place in Division II soccer at the Anna Maria
Island Community Center on Wednesday night, Oct.
-29.
Ben Webb Landscaping took an early lead and
never looked back in claiming the upset victory.
They were led by Michael Wallen who scored two
goals, and Kyle Schweitzer who also scored two
while anchoring the defense that allowed only
Lorenzo Rivera's late goal.
J.D. Webb and Alonzo Price supported Wallen
and Schweitzer with strong all-around games while
Jordan Pritchard and Max Gazzo played well in de-
feat for Mr. Bones.
The Islander Bystander took a hard-fought deci-
sion over a spirited Dowling Park team in Division
I soccer action. The Islander was led by Matt Losek,
who contributed on defense with strong tackling, and
on offense with the first goal of the night as The Is-
lander took the close 3-1 win.
Dowling Park was taking it to The Islander By-
stander but unable to crack the defense of Jeremy
LeGrand, J.C. Flemming and Lindsey Geeraerts.
Then Losek received the ball at the 30-yard line and
when nobody challenged him, launched a shot that
went over the goalie's head and into the back of the
net for a 1-0 lead 20 minutes in.
Undaunted, Dowling Park fought back early in
the second half when Alan Jenkins made a weaving
run through Mr. Bones' defense before he was taken
down and awarded a free kick. He finished to tie the
score at 1-1.
The Islander Bystander put the game out of
reach when Josh Sato scored two goals late in the
half to win the game by a score of 3-1.

IFC league action
Island Football Club had three teams in action
this past weekend, with the under-12 team playing at
G.T. Bray Park, Bradenton, against West Bradenton
in the morning and the under-14s taking on Mana-
tee East at Bray in an afternoon contest. The adult
IFC traveled to the Sarasota Football Club on Sun-
day to take on the Hustlers.
The U-12s got the local league off on the right
track when they recorded a tough, 3-1 win over a
very physical West Bradenton team in a game that
was called early because the coach for West
Bradenton received a double yellow card for yelling
at the referee.

The locals fell behind 1-0 when a West
Bradenton player got loose on a breakaway and beat
IFC goalie Trey Andricks at the near post.
Their lead didn't last long as Sean Pittman, as he
did all game long, beat his man down the wing. But
West Bradenton's goalie made a strong save to pre-
serve the lead at the five-minute mark. Seconds later
Pittman took a pass from Taylor Manning to tie the
score 1-1, which is how the half ended.
IFC put the game away early in the second half
on some nice passing between Courtney Taylor, Jor-
dan Pritchard and Manning. First Taylor stole the
ball deep in our offensive end and sent it to
Pritchard. Pritchard beat his man. looking for the
shot. When the defender committed to him. he sent
it to a wide open Manning. who easily beat the
goalie for a 2-1 lead.
Courtney Taylor added a goal in the 40th minute
to give the locals an insurmountable 3-1 lead before
the referee threw the opposing coach off the field for

insubordination, cutting the game short by 15 min-
utes.
The win improves the U-12's record to 3-0 go-
ing into a rematch against another West Bradenton
team that the locals beat 2-1 the previous Sunday.
The U-14 team took a 2-1 decision over Mana-
tee East in a game that wasn't as close as the score
would indicate. The locals had numerous scoring
chances but only Ryan Quigley and Josh Sato were
able to finish to improve their record to 2-0.
The IFC adults went to the Sarasota Football
Club facility needing a victory after last Sunday's
poor showing against the Aliens that dropped them to
second place in the division. The locals came away
with a 2-2 tie that could have very easily been their
second loss of the season.
IFC found themselves down 1-0 when goalie
Kevin Morash, still a little woozy from a knee to the
head by a Hustler player, misplayed a shot off of a
corner kick to give the Hustlers an early lead that
stood until halftime.
Early in the second half, IFC got on the
scoreboard when Danny Mitchell sent the ball into
the box from the 35-yard line to a streaking Ken
Bowers, who headed it past Hustler goalie Scot
Lindsey (Island resident and former staffer at the
Center) to tie the score 1-1.
The score remained tied as the two teams traded
missed scoring opportunities until the 80th minute,
when Joseph Stewart received the ball on the right
side of the box and beat IFC goalie Lance Bieker to
give the Hustlers the lead with only 10 minutes
left to play.
At this time, IFC finally started playing ball the
way they are capable, as they controlled the ball and
had several good scoring chances go unrealized with
the clock ticking away.
With no more than a minute remaining, IFC was
awarded a corner kick. Neil Fellowes alertly played
the corner short to Mitchell, who was unguarded at
the 18-yard line. Mitchell gathered the ball in and hit
a superlative shot that beat Hustler Lindsey to the
upper-right corner of the goal to tie the game in
spectacular fashion with the whistle sounding sec-

bonds later.
Man-of-the-match was awarded to the defense
for hanging tough when the offense couldn't get it

All four IFC teams are in action next week. Sat-

Former Islander

ranks high in

horseback

competition
By Jim Hanson
Islander Correspondent
A 13-year-old former Islander has come
home from national competition in Tennessee
with standings higher than her pony can jump.
Alexis Glanz and her pony Raincheck
placed 10th against 150 other young riders in
the "very competitive" medal division of the
Pony Medal Finals of the American Horse
Shows Association in Franklin, Tenn.
Her trainer, Ann Thai, said this is an ex-
tremely difficult competition, and Glanz won
her high place only after two "ride-offs."
The young equestrienne started riding with
Thal at the Snaffle Farm in east Bradenton at
age 7 and within a year or two was competing
in the walk-trot division because "she just likes
competition a lot," said Thal.
Last year she was fourth overall in the na-
tional show's hunter division. Thal said that the
pony medal division is more difficult, placing
more emphasis on a rider.
Glanz this year has outgrown her pony and
from now on will ride her horse in the jumper
and equitation competitions. Nov. 7 to 9 she
will be in the national show at the State Fair-
grounds in Tampa, at Fairlea Farm near Venice
the following weekend, then in West Palm
Beach.
A student at Bradenton Academy, she is
the daughter of Ramona and Reynold Glanz,
who moved to west Bradenton from Anna
Maria City. He is a real estate developer and
investor.

'They hear a voice in every wind'


By Bob Ardren
Outdoor Perspectives
Cold front season is upon us. A glance at your ther-
mometer, rain gauge or the rolling surf in the Gulf of
Mexico makes the point.
But fronts have a very predictable wind pattern. If
you understand that pattern, you'll know when a front
is coming, how strong it might be when it finally ar-
rives and, of course, when it's over so you can start
watching for the next one.
Especially now that Roy Leep is about to retire,
this is a good time for all of us to sharpen up our
Weather forecasting skills a bit. Best of all, it's easy and
fun, especially when you're right.
Normally here on the west coast, we experience land
breezes from the east early in the day and, often, sea
breezes from the west later in the day. Our prevailing
winds this time of the year, however, when not being af-
fected by a front, are out of the east and southeast.
But as a cold front approaches, the wind shifts to
the south and begins blowing harder. That wind change
signals the approaching front and many locals say that
it's "feeding the front." How long and how strong it
blows from the south is considered a good sign of how
strong the front will be by many weather watchers.
Then, as the front bears down on us, the wind
"clocks around" to the west. It's called "clocking" be-
cause the shifts are in a clockwise direction.
Now it's really starting to blow, and you'll often see


rain bands on the front edge as it approaches. Get ready.
As the cold front actually passes through, there's of-
ten heavy rain, and a rapid drop in temperature. At that
point that wind clocks around to the north, blowing in
those wonderfully clear blue skies and crisp northern air.
Continuing around the clock, the wind eventually
shifts clockwise into the east again as the front blows
itself out and we return to a normal weather pattern.
So take a moment to "play sailor" and check the
direction of the breeze when you venture outdoors.
You'll soon find yourself able to predict cold fronts
with the best of them, and feeling quite pleased with
yourself when the television weather person announces
hours later sometimes many hours later "There's
a cold front on the way."

Red tide's about
Reports of red tide-inspired respiratory irritation came
from as close to home as Turtle Beach on Siesta Key over
the weekend. Mote Marine Laboratory reports moderate
outbreaks in the Englewood and Charlotte Harbor areas,
but has found only spotty evidence of red tide around
Sarasota, and none north of New Pass.
Cortez fishers were reporting a strong red tide
smell off southern Siesta Key Friday and Saturday, but
again, nothing anywhere near Anna Maria Island.
As of Monday, Mote reported "lots of calls" from
the Venice area complaining of the red tide smell, but
the only reports of dead fish thus far are coming from
Englewood. Sunday's north winds probably pushed the
tide back south, but it could return with more normal
weather patterns as the week progresses.
The water in New Pass showed clean Monday ac-
cording to Mote's tests.

U.S.C.G. Academy competition
Youngsters interested in attending the U.S. Coast
Guard Academy have until Dec. 15 to submit their
application. Candidates, chosen nationally without re-
gard to congressional nominations or geographical
quotas, must have reached age 17. but be no older than
23 by July 1, 1998, to be considered.
The Academy curriculum emphasizes engineering
and science, leads to a bachelor of science degree and
a commission as ensign in the Coast Guard. For more

Trout closed
Remember, under new rules put into place last
year, sea trout season is closed in our area during No-
vember and December. Do everyone a favor and please
- do not target trout for catch and release during the
closure. They're delicate creatures and it's a shame to
kill one that's not going to be eaten.

Boats are back
From a peak of 749,000 units in 1988, sales of
boats in this country dipped to 439,000 just three years
later in 1991. Boat builders blamed a 10 percent luxury
tax passed by Congress on boats costing more than
$100,000, a tax that was repealed in 1993.
Now the boating industry is rebuilding and sales
are soaring again. Last year sales reached 618,850
boats, down from 649,460 in 1995, but total retail boat-
ing sales climbed from $17.2 billion to $17.8 billion.
All this is a long way around reminding you that
Sail Expo is coming up in St. Petersburg, Nov. 6-9, at
the Vinoy Basin. About 110 boats are expected to be
on display and admission is $10 at the gate.
If sailing isn't your bag, wait until the St. Peters-
burg Boat Show scheduled for Nov. 20-23. That show
will have 700 boats on display at the Bayfront Basin
and admission is $7 for adults and $2 for youngsters,
ages 6to 12.
See you next week.

Reds, linesiders continue as best bets


By Capt. Mike Heistand
Despite the rocky weather over the weekend, fish-
ing action continues to be strong in the backwater.
Snook season is coming into full force right now, red-
fish action continues to be excellent, and flounder are
starting to get huge.
Dick at the Rod and Reel Pier said pier fishers
there have been catching snook redfish, mackerel,
some nice-sized flounder and a few sheepshead.
Fishers at the Anna Maria City Pier are catching
mackerel, redfish and snook in the mornings and floun-
der and lots of jacks almost any time of day.
Vicki from Island Marine said Ralph Bennickson
and friends caught their limit of redfish around the 59th
Street boat ramp and in the Lake LaVista channel. They
also caught some keeper snook and flounder.
Annie's Bait & Tackle said that Capt. Zack on the
Dee Jay II is finding snook, reds and catch-and-release
trout from all over the backwater. He's also putting his
charters onto occasional pompano, cobia and flounder,
with Gulf fishing producing Spanish mackerel and a
few kingfish.
Capt. Dave Pinkham on the Legend says he's been
doing good with grouper and mangrove snapper and
lots of kings before the front moved through.
Capt. Rick Gross said snook fishing is excellent
right now, with most fish coming aboard in the 25- to
30-inch range.
Capt. Mark Bradow said reds are his best bet
right now, too, with most catches falling into the slot
limit. He's also getting some nice-sized flounder.
On my boat Magic we've been catching lots of
reds and a few keeper snook on the days the weather
permitted angling.
Capt. Tom Chaya has good reports of reds, snook,
catch-and-release trout and mackerel.
Capt. Thom Smith at Angler's Repair said he's
finding good-sized snook in the bay and mackerel in
front of Terra Ceia Bay.
Bill at Island Discount Tackle said winds and rain
slowed offshore boating last week, but backwater fishing
has been excellent with snook and redfish in the flats while
mackerel and snapper are being caught from the bridges
and piers. He also predicts that kings will be hitting later
this week once the front passes and the water calms.
Fishers at the South Skyway Fishing Pier are
catching small grouper, mackerel, jacks, snapper and
flounder. There was also a 27-inch grouper caught off
the jetty last week.
Good luck and good fishing.
