parking fees,


bridge tolls


proposed

By Pat Copeland
Islander Reporter
Holmes Beach Mayor Bob VanWagoner says the
three Island mayors are urging residents to support
them at a work session on traffic issues with the Mana-
tee County Commission on Monday. Nov. 17, at 9 a.m.
at the county administration building, 1112 Manatee
Ave. W.. Bradenton.-
At the meeting, county commissioners will discuss
a plan for Island trolley service and enhanced bus ser-
vice to and from the mainland, as well as other options.
VanWagoner said, "The county staff came up with
an improved transit system from the mainland. It is
modest as far as public transit goes, but the county
commission is not happy with it."
The county plan includes trolleys that travel
from the Anna Maria City Pier to Coquina Beach
with a fare of 50 cents per person. The cost to imple-


The goal
is not to take
away the
freedom of
the beaches
but to control
traffic flow.

ment the plan is esti-
mated at $1.27 million.
and the cost to operate it
would range from
$500,000 to $600,000
per year.
VanWagoner said he
will also ask the county to
consider bridge tolls or
beach parking fees.
"I'll ask them to study it,
and I think I'll get support
from the mayor of
Bradenton Beach," he
said. "The goal is not to
take away the freedom of


the beaches but to control traffic flow. If we had either
parking fees or tolls, the income from that could be
used to improve public transit. That would make it at-
tractive to come to the beach cheaply by using public
transit."
VanWagoner said park-and-ride operations could
be used to transport people to the beach. That could be
enhanced by bike rentals or free bikes available at the
county beaches.
VanWagoner spoke at his privately sponsored
opinion forum last week, where he was joined by
Holmes Beach Police Chief Jay Romine who noted,
"We have the same roads as 30 years ago but now we
have a lot more cars. There are 5,000 residents in
Holmes Beach and 1,800 in Anna Maria. Multiply
that by three on any holiday weekend. Where are
those people going to go? We have two alternatives
to reduce the cars or expand the roads, which is
not an option."
"We're going to have to muscle this thing and
get attention out here," VanWagoner stressed. "The
county is not going to dig into its treasury and say,
'We're going to give you a nice new transit system
because the mayors came in here and waved their
hands and said they want it.' The public is going to
have to get into this and come with us on Nov. 17."
Another problem area is the Palma Sola Causeway,
and Island officials should work with the City of
Bradenton to improve traffic flow there, he said. Island-
ers also have to bite the bullet and begin car pooling.
"Are you people willing to share rides?"
VanWagoner asked.
"The ideas are there," Romine added. "What's not
there is the commitment on the part of the people and
the government. Somebody's going to have to pay for
it and the people will have to participate. It won't hap-
pen overnight."

Cell tower moratorium


eyed in Bradenton Beach


By Paul Roat
In an attempt to forestall the cellular phone tower
controversy that has erupted in Holmes Beach, Bradenton
Beach commissioners are going through the process of
declaring a moratorium on the tall towers in that city.
The commission voted unanimously last week to
proceed with the public hearing process to halt any con-
struction of cell towers in Bradenton Beach through
January 1999. The moratorium will give officials time
to change the city's land development codes and com-
prehensive plan to address the towers either permit
ting or prohibiting them.
Ironically, cellular phone reception is generally
good in Bradenton Beach, raising the question of
whether a tower would even be needed for the city's
cell phone and pager users.
What has spurred all the cell tower construction
nationwide is a change in the federal telecommunica-
tions legislation. The Telecommunications Act of 1996

encourages competition and removed much of the
regulation of cellular service providers.
The act "preserves the local government's ability
to regulate the placement and number of telephone
communication facilities provided the regulations do
not prohibit or preclude a wireless telecommunications
provider's ability to provide service," City Attorney
Alan Prather wrote to commissioners.
The moratorium on cell towers would allow the
city time "to study and review the siting, permitting,
construction and use of commercial telecommunication
towers in relation to the city's comprehensive plan and
land development codes," Prather continued.
Schedule of hearings is as follows.
Planning and Zoning Board: Nov. 18, 6:30 p.m.
Commission first public hearing: Nov. 20, 1 p.m.
Commission final public hearing and decision:
Dec. 4, 7 p.m.

Island son scores big, eyes bigger future


By Jim Hanson
Islander Correspondent
At age 10 J.D. Webb is No. 4 in the whole world
at his sport, and now he's starting to get serious
about it.
The Holmes Beach youngster placed fourth in
the wakeboarding world championship in Orlando,
picked up half a dozen sponsors and started working
on 1998's competition.
His father, Benjamin, said J.D. placed seventh in
national events in Houston in August to get to Orlando.
In the world competition he wakeboarded in prelimi-
nary rounds to emerge fifth and advance to the semi-
finals, and ultimately the finals.
"Second, third and fourth were within about 200
points of each other," said the proud father. "Most
tricks are worth far more than 200 points all by them-
selves. The winner was far ahead of the others, but he
was a big 13-year-old from Australia."
J.D. competed in Orlando against 17 other
wakeboarders, most of them older than he, from the
U.S., Australia, Japan and Mexico.
Last summer he won the national barefoot skiing
championship for boys 9. and under, setting two na-
tional records. And two weekends ago he was first in
the intermediate division, 17 and under, in a meet in
Jacksonville.
Rusty Wakeboards and Clothing Co. has made
J.D. its junior rider in the U.S., said his father, pro-
viding him with boards, clothing and other equip-
ment and signing him up to appear in advertisements.
Half a dozen other firms quickly fell in line to be-
come secondary sponsors when Rusty moved in, said.
the senior Webb.
Wakeboarding is a new sport that grew out of
surfboarding and waterskiing, said Webb. A
wakeboard is like a small edition of a surfboard, but
with foot binders similar to those on skis. The:

Baby sea turtles may find Bradenton Beach
a kinder, gentler, darker place next nesting sea-
son.
Island Turtle Watch Director Suzi Fox has re-
quested the city beef up its position on turning out
beachside lights during nesting season, generally
May through October.
Lights confuse the mother and baby turtles -
they instinctively head toward lights, thinking
they indicate the way back to the Gulf of Mexico
- so each year baby turtles are squashed under
the tires of cars as they head toward a shoreside
light and cross Gulf Drive.
Bradenton Beach has a resolution that en-
courages people to shield or turn off outside
lights. The problem is the resolution, adopted in
1987, has no real enforcement penalties to it.
"The city has a resolution, not an ordinance,


City clerks


promoted in


Holmes Beach
Holmes Beach commissioners last week ap-
proved Mayor Bob VanWagoner's recommendaiton
to promote two city clerks. Acting City Clerk Brooke
Bennett was promoted to city clerk and Deputy Clerk
Angela Sain was promoted to first deputy clerk.
VanWagoner said technically Leslie Ford, who
is on long-term medical disability leave, is still the
city clerk. However, since Ford is undergoing treat-
ment for scleroderma, a disease of the connective
tissue, and does not plan to return in the near future,
VanWagoner took action.
He said he spoke to Ford, who supports the pro-
motions.


tines similar to waterskiers' for points.
Everybody in the family father Ben, mother
Susan, J.D. and his 7-year-old sister and 5-year-old
brother is into wakeboarding and waterskiing. They
are working members of the Ski-A-Rees, champion-


so there are no real teeth to the regulations," Fox
told commissioners last week.
"If Bradenton Beach could become turtle
friendly it would be very cool," she said.
Fox said a Sarasota County ordinance dealing
with turtles and beachfront lights is "the best light-
ing ordinance and what we would like you to
adopt."
That ordinance, passed last month, sets forth
strict requirements on beach lighting for new
buildings that virtually eliminates any lights that
may shine on the beach. For existing buildings,
owners have until May of next year to bring lights
into compliance with the "no beach visible" rules.
Failure to comply would constitute a misdemeanor
offense.
Commissioners agreed to look into the turtle
protection ordinance and instructed Commissioner
Dan Goodchild to spearhead the effort.


J.D. Webb catches some
air on a wakeboard. The

old is ranked fourth in the

"We've kept everything fun so he wouldn't burn
out with his great talent," said his father. "We never
pushed. He always takes the initiative himself, and now
he's really getting serious."


Cell suit against

Holmes Beach

amended by GTE
CONTINUED FROM PAGE 1
to construct a cellular phone tower.
In September, the commission approved a resolu-
tion giving GTE a special exception to construct the
tower at Smith Realtors, 5904 Marina Drive. In Octo-
ber, a referendum committee fulfilled the city charter
requirements to seek a repeal of that vote.
However, the commission has been stymied by the
question of whether the referendum procedure can be
applied to a resolution. All referendum procedures
outlined in the city charter refer to ordinances, not reso-
lutions.
GTE seized on that difference in its amended law-
suit. It asks that the court declare that the referendum
procedure cannot be applied to a resolution, that the
referendum petition is insufficient and that the referen-
dum procedure violates the 1996 Telecommunications
Act, as well as equal protection and due process rights
guaranteed by the Fifth and 14th Amendments to the
U.S. Constitution.
Following the commission's vote to approve the
special application, which included the site plan to
construct the tower, Mayor Bob VanWagoner refused
to sign the site plan. GTE then filed suit against the city,
VanWagoner as mayor and as an individual and the
city's two building officials as officials and as individu-
als.
In the complaint, GTE asks the court to order
VanWagoner to sign the site plan and the building of-
ficials to process the application and issue a building
permit. It-also seeks compensatory damages for finan-
cial losses, punitive damages against VanWagoner and
costs, expenses and attorneys fees.
The city commission plans to hold it first meeting
to discuss the lawsuit this week. According to Florida's
public meetings law, referred to as the Sunshine Law,
the commission can have litigation assessment meet-
ings in the shade (not public). Only the litigation can
be discussed. After the litigation is settled or otherwise
concluded, transcripts of the "out-of-the-sunshine"
meetings become public record.

More on Meduse


Remember the Meduse, that huge yacht that an-
chored in the Gulf of Mexico off the Island in late
August? Well, the boat is the cover yacht of the No-
vember issue of Showboats International.
And no, it's not owned by Microsoft founder and
billionaire Bill Gates. The owner appears to be Paul
Allen, whose business interests range from computer
technology to the entertainment industry to basketball
and is one of America's and indeed the world's -
richest people, worth about $7.5 billion.
The Meduse is the second of Allen's yachts. Be-
sides the 199-foot vessel spotted off Anna Maria, he
also has a 153-foot Feadship, the Charade. Both are
Dutch-built, steel-hulled vessels.
The article in Showboats International explains
that the vessel just completed a 4,700-mile trip on the
Amazon River. Passengers were able to look at the
river's unique pink dolphins through a special "dolphin
cam" mounted under the waterline at the bow.
Here's a few more of the goodies found aboard the
yacht.
SA full-sized recording studio which permitted


Dave Stewart, formerly of the Eurythmics, and Peter
Gabrial to cut several tracks for upcoming projects.
A total of 52 computers linked to touch pads in
each room allow guests and crew to adjust the environ-
mental controls, entertainment systems and shipboard
information.
.* A theater allows guests a chance to watch one of
the 2,000 movies stored on laser disc, or listen to one
of the music libraries more than 5,000 CDs.
The electronics system has more than 78 kilome-
ters of wiring.
The carpeted engine room features glass walls so
guests will not be tempted to get in the way of the twin
3,516-hp Caterpillar engines.
The Meduse's diving center is the most compre-
hensive ever assembled, allowing divers the option of
a wide mixture of gases. There is also a recompression
chamber that can be affixed to the yacht's McDonnell
Douglas helicopter for transport to a hospital.
By the way, popular pastimes during the Amazon trip,
according to the Showboats International article, were
piranha fishing and catch-and-release alligator hunting.

Planners try to make trailer ordinance workable


By Pat Copeland
Islander Reporter
The Holmes Beach Planning Commission has
made two suggestions to the city commission on fix-
ing the city's troubled trailer ordinance.
The ordinance created dissension since its passage
last year because it restricts trailer and RV parking to
side and back yards "unless there is no other alterna-


tive due to the configuration of the property." Some
residents said compliance would force them to remove
costly landscaping and fences.
After a case came to the city's code enforcement
board, its members sought clarification from the coun-
cil on the meaning of "configuration of the property."
Subsequent discussions led nowhere and the ordinance
was put on hold.


Ageless electronic writers

Back row, from left, are Pegi Clark-Pearson, Sarasota; Jack Fournier, Venice; Robert Plutchik,

5-Year


Last month commissioners were poised to rescind
the ordinance, then had second thoughts. They asked
the planning commission to come up with suggestions
to make the ordinance workable.
Planner Bruce Golding said all trailers should be
parked in garages or enclosed structures, unless
they're RVs or similar vehicles that are used in daily
transportation.
"I'm opposed to all this storage in front, side and
rear yards," Golding said.
"It's not a good law," Planner Joe Kennedy de-
clared. "We can't make this work because of the way
it's written. Each situation is a precedent. I'm sick of
the amount of time and effort involved in this ordi-
nance. How far do we go before we realize there's not
a realistic solution?"
Kennedy said he asked public works officials how
many written complaints they've had, and officials said
there were none. He said he didn't check on telephone
complaints.
Planners offered these suggestions:
Define the term configuration as the shape of the
property, including the setbacks; buildings, including
storage buildings which were in existence as of the
effective date of the ordinance; and any landscaping,
trees or shrubbery which were in existence as of the
effective date of the ordinance.
Modify the sentence in the ordinance that states,
"In no event shall the trailer be parked within the front
yard, as defined in the land development code, unless
there is no other alternative available due to the con-
figuration of the property," by ending the sentence af-
ter the word "alternative."
Planners also objected to the portion of the ordinance
that makes parking trailers in back yards of canalfront
properties illegal. Residents of Key Royale had lobbied for
this stipulation, arguing that the canal front is their front
yard and to park trailers there would be unsightly.
"Why are they better than me?" Golding asked.
"Why should I look at a trailer 15 feet from my home
and they don't have to look at something that's possi-
bly 100 feet away?"
The others agreed.

Choral director chosen for

Island aggregation


James Forssell, educator and choir master, has
been named choral director of the Anna Maria Island
Community Orchestra and Chorus.
He succeeds Alfred Gershfeld, who as artistic di-
rector of the group directed the chorus last year.
Gershfeld now is director of orchestras at the New
World School of the Arts in Miami, but continues to
lead the local group and will conduct three of the five
concerts this season.
The chorus under Forssell is rehearsing currently
at the Gloria Dei Lutheran Church, 6608 Marina Drive,
Holmes Beach, from 9:30 a.m. to noon on Saturdays.
More singers are needed, he said, especially sopranos
and basses.
Forssell has lived in Bradenton since 1961, com-
ing here from his native Minnesota. He was choral di-
rector and chairman of the Manatee High School mu-
sic department for 34 years and a church choir direc-
tor for 40 years, most recently at Palma Sola Presby-
terian Church.
He earned a bachelor's degree in music from Samford
University in Birmingham, Ala., and a master's in voice
and choi-al literature at the University of Iowa. There, he


sang under Daniel Moe, now
director of the Key Chorale in
Sarasota.
Forssell also has an-
nounced Manatee High .
School football games at .' s
Hawkins Stadium for the -
past 34 years and is known
there as "the voice of the
Hurricanes."
Two of his former stu- Forssell
dents at Manatee will sing
solo parts in the Island group's current concert series.
Tenor Bill Kelley of Bradenton, class of 1975, will
solo in Bach's "Cantata No. 48" on Nov. 23. Soprano
Dawn Young-Fontana of Holmes Beach, now a doc-
toral student in voice at the University of Miami, will
solo in Handel's "Messiah" on Dec. 21. She has ap-
peared with the Island group several times and was
choral director for a year.
The concerts will be in the sanctuary of St. Bernard
Catholic Church, 248 S. Harbor Drive, Holmes Beach.
For information, call 723-2742 or 756-9304.

Gershfeld retains leadership of Island music group


Alfred Gershfeld, area conductor, violinist and
teacher, will continue as artistic director and princi-
pal conductor of the Anna Maria Island Community
Orchestra and Chorus.
Gershfeld recently moved to Miami to take the
position of director of orchestras at the New World
School of the Arts and will also be music director of
the Lake Placid Sinfonietta in Lake Placid, N.Y.
Gershfeld will return to conduct three of the five
concerts in the music group's 1997-98 season, ap-
pearing first in the opening concert of the series on
Nov. 23. The group's performances will take place
at St. Bernard Catholic Church in Holmes Beach.
Works by Boccherini, Mozart and J.S. Bach will be


presented.
He will also return to conduct the group's two
traditional "Messiah" concerts on Dec. 21 and March
22. The remaining two concerts of the season, Feb.
8 and April 26, will be led by candidates being con-
sidered for the newly created position of assistant
conductor.
The orchestra is rehearsing at present under the
baton of candidate Yura Alexov, the orchestra's con-
certmaster since 1996, and like Gershfeld, a native
of the former Soviet Union.
Alexov, 36, is a graduate of the Music Conser-
vatory in St. Petersburg, Russia, where he organized
and played in a string quartet that won a national


competition, and also played in the Kirov Opera
Ballet Theater Orchestra.
In addition to his work with the Island orchestra,
Alexov is well-known in the southwest Florida mu-
sic community as leader of the Yura Alexov String
Quartet and also for his appearances with the Florida
West Coast Symphony, the Sopthwest Florida Sym-
phony Orchestra, and the Naples Philharmonic.
He is currently working toward a master's de-
gree in conducting at the University of South Florida
in Tampa.
Alexov and Gershfeld, who have often worked
closely together, say they are both looking forward
to their new collaborative arrangement.

the sweat from your body as, once again, you trudge
across the hot shell of the parking lot to feed the parking
meter so you won't get a $25 ticket.
The joy of the beach on Anna Maria Island.
Paid beach parking is again coming into discussions
for the Island. Holmes Beach Mayor Bob VanWagoner
now believes that charging for parking at the beaches
would be a means to alleviate traffic congestion during the
winter tourist season.
He said he believes Bradenton Beach Mayor-elect
Connie Drescher would concur with him. Indeed, she in-
dicated approval of parking fees at Coquina Beach'during
this newspaper's forum. Anna Maria balked at the sugges-
tion in the past, fearing paid parking to the south would
force additional beachgoers to the city where very little
public beach parking exists now.
The question of paid beach parking is one that will
have to be addressed by the Manatee County Commission.
Since that body has suggested beach parking fees in the
past, only to be rebuffed by Islanders, it's a fair assump-
tion they would jump at the chance now.
We don't like the idea at all. Parking fees at Coquina
Beach will logically send free-beach seekers north to the
Manatee Public Beach where cars are already crammed
on prime beach days. Fees surely won't bode well with the
restaurant concession there.
Then it would be Anna Maria's turn to try and ebb the
fee-free beach parking flow. As it would be for Longboat,
the Palma Sola Causeway and on and on.
VanWagoner says the Island will have to make some
kind of financial contribution to get a full-fleged trolley
system in place out here to offset the beach traffic flow.
Hence, beach parking fees and tolls on the bridges.
How about finding out how much money may or may
not be asked of us before suggesting we give away our free
parking? Before off-handedly suggesting a bridge toll that
can't be authorized without action by the legislature.
The idea of implementing toll charges to this Island
came and went when the Cortez and Anna Maria Island
bridges, built in 1957, were paid off. It's too ludicrous a
proposal to be discussed, not to mention the fact that tolls
on bridges are contrary to state law without bonds to be
satisfied by the fees.
The toll bridge at Boca Grande works to keep out the
riff-raff(er, beach traffic) at a $3.20 crossing fee, if that's
what VanWagoner's really after. But that bridge is pri-
vately owned and they can charge what they please.
For those of us that have "survived" seasons here for
a little longer than VanWagoner's three years, there's a
distinct preference to keep things the way they are. Free.

JI YOUR OPINIONI


Perversion in schools?
Today I received a call from Bayshore High School
that my daughter's shirt was too short and she had to
change it. I totally agree with a dress code and have no
problem with my daughter walking home to change.
Perhaps, however, you can explain the logic of
your rules allowing and even encouraging public
transvestism for "gender-bender" day earlier that
week at Bayshore High School. Maybe I'm missing
something, but I think you or whoever is responsible
for this certainly needs a course in logic. Of course,
you are being logical if you are pandering to the per-
vert lobby and attempting to have our (not the
schools') children view perversion as an acceptable
norm. The latter is certainly a far worse scenario than
just being illogical and/or stupid.
My daughter is new to the school system and I
didn't realize that you were actively promoting per-
version. I wonder if most parents are cognizant of it.
I know that you wrongly believe you can't teach or
demonstrate a Christian type of morality, but you
surely can't be promoting immorality or the false
religion of secular humanism, which believes in no
objective standard of right or wrong. If you can't
promote the Judeo-Christian ethics, you certainly
promote its opposite.
John J. Maloney, Bradenton
Editor's Note: This letter was addressed to Dr. Tom
Walker of the Manatee County School Board with a
copy to The Islander Bystander. John Maloney is chief
of police in Bradenton Beach.

Ode to a 'garden-no-more'
in Anna Maria
How saddened we are upon our return to Anna
Maria Island to find the lovely natural garden beside
the Island Players Theatre gone.
After reading your back issues about it, a little
poem from childhood comes to mind:
Who learns will love
And not destroy
The creature's life
The flower's joy.
Mr. & Mrs. Harold Kall, Anna Maria


Chamber's Halloween event a
safe treat for visitors
I would like to congratulate the Anna Maria Is-
land Chamber of Commerce on the most excellent
"trick or treat" event they organized for Halloween.
We are on holiday on Anna Maria Island for the
fourth time and have been joined this year by our
children and grandchildren. For the little ones, this
was a great opportunity to join in what to us is an
unusual celebration Halloween is decidedly low-
key in England.
Thank you all for the chance to "trick or treat" in
complete safety when having no friends to call upon
safely.
Pat Erricker, London and Holmes Beach


Chamber's 'Trail of Treats'
delights newcomers
We are newcomers and this was our son's first
Halloween here.
The "Trail of Treats" was an especially enjoy-
able opportunity for all of us to visit many shops and
businesses, only some of which we had previously
explored.
We send our thanks to the organizers and to the
generous businesses who "treated" the children. This
is one more reason to support our local businesses.
Tom and Terry Aposporos, Holmes Beach

THOSE WERE THE BAYS
Part 1, The Drowsy Thirties
by June Alder


The old Anna Maria Inn near the Bay end of Pine Avenue as it appeared around
1917.

RETURN OF THE


NATIVES


On a raw, gusty day in late October
of 1930 the Tampa ferry sidled up to the
long Anna Maria wharf and let down its
gangplank with a thump. Only three
passengers disembarked a tall, gray-
haired man and two women.
There was no one to meet them. A
few fishermen, their jackets buttoned up
tight and caps pulled down over their
ears, dangled lines into the choppy wa-
ters. They hardly looked up. A porter
stood silently by his cart waiting to take
the newcomers' baggage. That was all.
It was not a felicitous homecoming
for the Colman family George, his
wife Lula and their daughter Marion.
Lula was the eldest daughter of George
Emerson Bean, Anna Maria's first
homesteader. Colman and Lula met on
the ship taking the Bean family to
Tampa Bay from Connecticut in 1882
When they married in Tampa in
1886, the newlyweds looked forward to
settling on the north end of the Island.
In fact, Colman had started to build a
home near the Bean tract. But the yel-
low fever epidemic of 1887 the last
major yellow fever onslaught to hit
Florida changed their plans. The
dreaded fever killed 300 Tampans, in-
cluding George Bean's wife Abbie,
mother of seven.
The tragedy delayed Bean's home-
steading plans for several years and in-
duced his new son-in-law to take his
bride back to Connecticut where their
only child was born a decade later.


Lula Bean, 22, married schoolmaster
George Colman in 1886.


When Marion was 6, Colman moved
the family to Lake Alfred, Fla., where
he ran a general store. In those days
Marion stored up wonderful memories
of visiting her Hall cousins on Anna
Maria Island.
Twenty years later, she and her
mother had brought her ill father to the
Island in.hopes the salt air would im-
prove his health. Marion had given up
her teaching career to care for him for
the rest of his days.
The last time Marion had seen
Anna Maria was on a visit in 1913.
She was 16 then and wide-eyed with
wonder at changes taking place at the
old homestead. Uncle Will, her
mother's younger brother, showed
them around the resort he was build-
ing in expectation of making a fortune
for the Bean clan.
There was so much activity going
on. Wagons hauling lumber and
equipment were going back and forth
along a broad street lined with newly
planted coconut palms. An army of
workmen scurried about. The air was
thick with the thwack of hammers and
rasp of saws.
In addition to trim cottages taking
shape, a large, two-story hotel stood at
the foot of the dock, and beyond it the
sturdy bell tower of a church was ris-
ing up.
Now Uncle Will's "dream" resort
was almost a ghost town. Gone were
the coconut palms; sand spurs and
prickly pear had taken over the
streets. The cottages, most of them,
were tumbledown and empty; the
little white church Marion had ad-
mired had been boarded up.
As she stood on the windswept wharf
Marion glanced at her father and mother.
They looked so tired after their long trip.
Her heart sank but only for a moment.
They had put their trust in the Lord.
Somehow they would get along.
Managing a smile at her folks,
Marion picked, up her portmanteau and,
with the porter following behind them
with their trunk, led the way to the old
hotel.

Big Mullet Smoke
coming to Cortez
The smokers will start long before dawn on the
Anna Maria Island Privateers' Mullet Smoke on Sat-
urday, Nov. 22, in Cortez village.
Rick Maddox, president of the Privateers, said the
fish fiesta will run from 9 a.m. "until we run out of
mullet." The mullet is ready to go so there's usually no
waiting line, he said.
That is because the smoking Privateers start their
work early and stay at it as long as there are appetites
out there or they run out of mullet. Their smoker can
handle 200 pounds of the succulent fish at a time, but
each complete smoke takes about two and a half hours.
Hence their early schedule.
The Privateers will prepare the fish according to
Whitey Horton's special recipe and the fish will be

May I Say Thank You ...

I will continue to be your voices. My congratulations to
Mayor-elect Connie Drescher, Commissioner Dan Goodchild
and Commissioner Gail Cole. Thank you to Mr. Richard

Pd. Pol. Adv. Paid for by the campaign to elect Cedrick Wilson


wrapped and ready to take out. Also available will be
Charlotte McKelvey's recipe book of the varied ways
of preparing mullet.
The Mullet Smoke will be at the Seahorse Raw Bar
& Grill at 12012 Cortez Road W.
Maddox said his organization usually has two
smokes a season but this season decided on three. The
second will be on Super Bowl Sunday on the Island,
most likely in the 5900 block of Marina Drive across
from the Holmes Beach City Hall.
Proceeds will go to the Privateers' support of the
youth programs at the Cortez Community Center. For

Cortez waterfront access
meeting Thursday
Information and opinions from the public on the
Cortez waterfront access controversy will be sought
at a meeting at 7 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 13.
Preliminary results of a Manatee County survey
of the waterfront will be made public at the "Cortez
village meeting" at the Cortez Community Center,
4517 123rd St. Ct. W.
Janet M. Hoffman of the County Planning De-
partment said this meeting will be a step in the efforts
to find a solution to the matter, which has simmered
for years in the historic fishing village.
Sue Maddox, longtime resident and activist in the
village, has called for development of three street-
ends that run to the bay from the residential area. They
are owned by the county but fishermen have cluttered
them for decades with fishing gear, boats and debris,
she said.

At all those precious photos in our old picture book.
To see the picture of the children as they romped and played,
To compare them with the ones of how they look today.
And remember all those trips we took, both near and far,
And smile as I see the pictures of our old family car.
And some snapshots make you laugh, others make you cry,
But I'll treasure that old photo book until the day I die.

A lawsuit filed by Heathcliff Kryszczuk against the

City Attorney Patricia Petruff told the city commis-

- meaning that Kryszczuk may refile at any time.

suits against the city based upon its harassment of him."
In the two-count suit, Kryszczuk alleged he was
persecuted by the police department and harassed by
the city. He sought $25,000 in punitive damages and
$25,000 in compensatory damages on the first count
and $75,000 in punitive damages and $75,000 in com-
pensatory damages on the second count.

I HAPPENING













Cortez smokes
The Anna Maria Island Privateers are hosting a
mullet smoke in a couple of weeks on Saturday, Nov.
22. They do it every year, so what's new, you say.
Well, it's in Cortez for starters.
The new location for the mullet smoke and sale is
appropriate, after all. The mullet is donated by Cortez
fishers and fish houses so the Privateers can continue to
donate their hard work and proceeds to youth programs.
It's the old "good news, bad news" addage.
The Privateer's boat is parked in Cortez now, thanks
to Holmes Beach Mayor Bob VanWagoner's aggrava-
tion over its former location (in Holmes Beach).
That's where the bad news comes in. Bad for Bob.
Bad for the fact that when the Privateers got booted out
of Holmes Beach they decided to broaden their horizons.
Now, with the boat parked in Cortez, the benefactors of
youth programs and scholarships will expand their be-
nevolence to Cortez. A loss for any of the Island kids
who would have benefited from the usual donations to
the Anna Maria Island Community Center.
Good for Cortez. The Cortez Community Center
will receive funding from the mullet smoke, and right-
fully so.
We're sure the Anna Maria Island Community Cen-
ter would agree. The Cortez entity is just beginning to
make its way for the kids in the Village and every little
bit helps.
Still, we think Mayor Bob deserves some roasting.

Islanders invited to public forum on flooding
By Pat Copeland
Islander Reporter
You are living in a flood zone.
For old-timers, this isn't exactly news, but for new-
comers, it can be quite a shock the first time the rains
pour or a storm blows.
Flooding is a fact of life for Islanders and the Island I ...
Flood Mitigation Committee wants to help residents deal
with the associated problems and lessen the impact. The
committee will hold its first public meeting on Thursday,
Nov. 20, at 7:30 p.m. in Anna Maria City Hall.
Residents are asked to share their flooding prob- .r i
lems and concerns, as well as any successful mitigation
efforts. Committee members will point out problem
areas they have identified, detail their work and explain
mitigation strategies developed by the cities.
Public education is just one of the committee's
goals. Others include eliminating or reducing repetitive .
losses and developing a mitigation plan for each city. &. .- ;:
All are designed to lower Islanders' flood insurance
rates through the National Flood Insurance Program.
Communities that follow minimum standards set
by NFIP can qualify for reasonable flood insurance
rates for its residents. However, NFIP has developed NO Name Storm of June 1982
another program, the Community Rating System, for The infamous No-Name Storm blew ashore without warning and surprised sleeping Islanders in June 1982,
communities that would like to obtain discounts of 5 inundating homes and streets on Anna Maria and Longboat Key. This photo shows flood waters flowing
percent to 45 percent on its rates. around Beachplace on Longboat Key.

Activities to lower flood
insurance rates
By being a part of the CRS in the past, all three Island
cities currently have discounts of 10 percent. That discount
is shown on residents' flood insurance bills. By complet--
ing a series of activities in several categories, the commit-
tee hopes to lower rates by another 5 percent.
Public information is one of those categories and
includes activities such as holding public meetings,
providing flood insurance rate maps to residents, main-
taining a flood information "library" at the Island
Branch Library and encouraging real estate agents to
advise potential purchasers of the flood hazard.
A second category is mapping and regulations and
includes keeping vacant flood plain properties from
being developed, setting higher regulatory standards
for construction and protection of buildings and devel-
oping stormwater management programs.

Hurricane Elena of September 1985
Hurricane Elena, with sustained winds of 100 mph, passed by, then stalled, more than 100 miles west of Tampa Bay
before moving on to hammer the Mississippi coast. It still packed enough wallop to cause major flood damage on the
Island. Islanders will never forget being awakened at 1:30 a.m. for a mandatory evacuation.

A third category is flood damage reduction and
includes relocating, flood proofing or elevating flood-
prone buildings and maintaining drainage systems.
The final category is flood preparedness and in-
cludes providing early flood warnings to residents and
having a detailed response plan.

Flood committee
interlocal agreement
In order to be able to function, the committee must
have an interlocal agreement signed by all three cities.
Holmes Beach Commissioners gave the agreement
conditional approval last week, as recommended by
City Attorney Patricia Petruff. Petruff pointed out that
the agreement lacks details in several areas. She said
the three city attorneys should each draft a document
that meets their legal requirements.
"I would concur with some of the concerns," com-
mittee chairman Joan Perry said. "We're in the process
of drafting bylaws, because we realize there should
always be an effort to keep things equal among the cit-
ies and that's not spelled out."
She said each city will receive periodic committee ..
reports and activities for the insurance discount must
be completed by next spring.
"This is the year of the big push," Perry noted. "We ,
have to be able to function. This came out of nowhere
because no one was writing a plan, and it requires a
concerted effort on everybody's part to get it done." The ra
Bradenton Beach Commissioners approved the re- Islanders
vised agreement last week. City Attorney Alan Prather in four da
provided a memo outlining the same types of concerns as motorists
Petruff noted. These included committee members keep-
ing records of their expenditures of public funds and
clearly identifying the committee, its makeup, how mem-
bers are appointed, their powers and operating procedures. P
Anna Maria Commissioners approved the agree-
ment Oct.28.
Each city will make an annual contribution of $2,000 Polic
to the committee. The money will be used to mail infor- police
nation to property owners, advertise public meetings, host Asso
a seminar for real estate agents, maintain a library, develop 10:3(
a school program and educate the public.

bring fresh ideas and add to the overall festivi-
ties, particularly those with sailboats which can
use their rigging to produce some truly outstand-
ing displays,"
There is a Boat Parade Hotline for more in-
formation please call 778-1136.

Horseshoe winners

Entries open for Island holiday parade


Applications are available now for entry in the
annual Christmas parade which covers the entire length
of Anna Maria Island.
The Anna Maria Island Privateers, which sponsors
the parade each holiday time, is mailing application
forms to individuals, organizations and businesses that
have participated in the past. Newcomers to the parade
ranks may obtain forms from Privateers, said Rick
Maddox, president, by calling 778-1238 or 794-2599.
He would like to have applications in as soon as
possible but they have been accepted right up to the
time the parade starts, he said, as long as the paperwork
was in order to satisfy liability requirements.
The parade will form at Bayfront Park in Anna
Maria City at 10 a.m. Saturday, Dec. 6, and end up at
Coquina Beach. Because of its length, there are no
walking units. There are normally 35 to 50 units,
Maddox said.
He doesn't know who will participate this year, but
he is sure of Conquistador units from the area and of
his own Privateers boat float. This local tradition was
booted off the Island by Holmes Beach city action this
year and has no permanent home; it is temporarily with
Maddox near his home in Cortez.
At the end of the parade at Coquina, Santa Claus
will distribute gifts to youngsters under 12 and free
Coca Cola and hotdogs will be provided. That program
will be from 11:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. and usually at-
tracts 500 or so children, said Maddox, and "you'd be
amazed how much those kids can eat."

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


Perseverance pays off
for Dowling Park!
Dowling Park beat Island Pest Control 2-1 in
Thursday night's Anna Maria Island Community
Center Division I soccer action. The game had an
exciting finish as Josh Sankey scored the game win-
ner in the 52nd minute in front of a raucous crowd
that cheered every Dowling Park touch on the ball!
The win which put Dowling Park in the vic-
tory column was a result of hard work as they
clearly were the aggressors in getting on the
scoreboard in the third minute.
Ryan Keller cleared the ball on defense for Is-
land Pest Control but the ball went to Mark Sankey,
who sent it to a hard-charging Peter Dowling.
Dowling just beat the goalie to the ball, shot and
watched as the ball deflected off the goalie and rolled
to the far post for a 1-0 lead that stood until the half.
Early in the second half, Dowling Park missed
on a scoring chance when an inadvertent "hand ball"
by the Island Pest Control defense gave them a pen-
alty kick. Cory Schafer hammered the ball but it

SPORTS, FROM PAGE 18
chances for both teams were stopped by nice tackles
by the respective defenses of both teams.
A deafening cheer went up from the Dowling
Park faithful as-Josh Sankey beat his man in the
midfield and went in against the goalie with two
defenders giving chase. Sankey pushed the ball for-
ward a bit too far, prompting Island Pest Control
goalie Luke Jaeger to come out and challenge for the
ball. Sankey just won the foot race that resulted in a
collision between him and Jaeger. The ball somehow
squirted through and slowly rolled into the goal for
the eventual game-winning score of 2-1.
Seconds later, Mark Sankey almost added to
Dowling Park's lead when Jaeger's punt went right
to him. He settled quickly and shot attempting to
put it over Jaeger who was off his line but it went
harmlessly over the goal.
With time running down, strikers Lowman and
Daniel VanAndel made runs at the Dowling Park de-
fense. VanAndel dribbled through several defenders
but Peter Dowling came over between VanAndel and
the ball before VanAndel tripped him, sending the
ball to goalie Alan Jenkins.
VanAndel recovered the ball seconds later and
beat the defense but Jenkins came off his goal line to
dive on the ball and deny VanAndel. Then Lowman
stole the ball and looked to be in position to score,
but Peter Dowling again made the defensive tackle
to preserve Dowling Park's lead.
Two saves in the closing minutes by Jenkins in
goal put the finishing touches on the 2-1 win by
Dowling Park, which sent the parents/fans sprinting
across the field to congratulate the team.
Amid the celebrating, Peter Dowling was asked
how it felt to finally get a win. He succinctly re-
sponded, "It's awesome!"
Supporting Dowling, Jenkins, and Josh and
Mark Sankey in the win were Bobby Cooper and
Kim Wojalewski, who thankfully did not break her
leg, as reported last week.
The earlier game saw Air & Energy dominate
from start to finish in a 5-1 win over Ben Webb
Landscaping in Division II soccer.
John Maser led the way with three goals while

Denille Smallwood chipped in with two. Olivia
Langston just missed scoring as well, in a good ef-
fort. Michael Wallen scored the lone Ben Webb
Landscaping goal late in the game and was supported
by Kyle Schweitzer and J.D. Webb.

IFC youths remain undefeated!
The Island Football Club under-8 team took an
early 3-0 lead behind goals from Lexi Braxton, Nick
Sato and Joel Mitchell on the way to an easy, 10-0
win over the Westside Bandits on Saturday, Nov. 8,
at Palma Sola Park, Bradenton.
Braxton led the way with five goals in taking
player-of-the-game honors. She was supported by
Sato, Mitchell and Connor Bystrom with one goal
each and Nick Smith, who scored two goals and
made a stellar save while playing goalie.
The under-12 IFC team had a scheduled game at
the Center called off after 15 minutes of action. A
violent collision between Peter Dowling and a
Westside player while going for a head ball, coupled
with the fact that the referee didn't show up, resulted
in the opposition going home.
The IFC under-14s traveled to Sarasota to take
on Sarasota 442 at the 17th Street field. The locals
had no problems in taking an easy 6-0 win. Aaron
Lowman and Diego Felipe led the way with two
goals apiece. Ryan Quigley and Robert Bonaiuto
each scored one, while Bonaiuto chipped in with two
assists.

IFC versus Slovakia act IV
Island Football Club's Division I adult team took
on fierce rivals SFC Slovakia on Sunday, Nov. 9, at
G.T. Bray Park, Bradenton.
The excitement and energy of Sunday's game ri-
valed the last match up for the two teams on
Sarasota's home field for the Division Cup last
spring. Last match-up the Islanders were victorious.
Another similarity of last season's game was the
continual "diving" by Slovakian players. Any con-
tact between a Slovak and an IFC player resulted in
the Slovak falling to the ground, writhing in pain -
only to get up and run effortlessly a minute later.
Right from the start, the crowd was gasping and

cheering as Danny Mitchell and Slovakia Pavel"
Rusek collided. Slovakia got a free kick from the 25-
yard line only 90 seconds into the game. Rusek took
the kick but goalie Lance Bieker was equal to the
task in making the save.
Three minutes later, IFC missed out on a golden
opportunity on a long throw-in from Tim Bugna that
a Slovakian defender misjudged. The ball bounced to
a hard-charging Bill Brickse in front of the goal, but
his shot went over the top.
Slovakia had a good chance to score in the 15th
minute when they brought the ball up the middle, but
Jeff Lonzo came out of nowhere with a slide tackle
to block the shot and preserve the shutout.
IFC was unlucky in the 28th minute as well,
when Tim Lease threw the ball in to Jeff Nelson who
crossed the ball into the goal mouth, where Brickse
headed it off the cross bar to the crowd's disappoint-
ment.
The half ended with Neil Fellowes stealing the
ball and out running the defender down the field, but
his shot went wide and the half ended scoreless a few
minutes later.
IFC successfully avoided a 1-0 score when
Rusek was "taken down" and Slovakia was awarded
a free kick. Radek Zehcar ripped a shot on goal, but
IFC goalie Bieker was there to tip it over the cross
bar, resulting in a corner kick that was cleared out of
IFC's defensive end.
Two minutes passed before Fellowes stole the
ball and made a drop pass to Lonzo who sent it for-
ward to a streaking Ken Bowers. Bowers' shot went
over and wide of the goal.
Slovakia came back with a counter attack and
they had numbers on their side, but Danny Mitchell's
slide tackle cleared the ball out of danger. The ball
was punted out to midfield where Slovakia passed it
around. The ball was stolen, then given away.
Fellowes went in and won the ball on a tackle but
was whistled for his second yellow card on the day,
which resulted in him being sent off. IFC had to play
a man short.
Both teams traded missed scoring opportunities

before the 57th minute when Nick LeDuc retali-
ating for getting raked across the shin got red
carded off the field for a dangerous tackle. This put
the locals two men short with over 15 minutes to
play and still, a scoreless tie.
The tie was broken in the 77th minute when
some miscomunication and bad luck led to a
Slovakian goal. First Ken Bowers inadvertently
heeled the ball backwards to brother Matt, who
missed it, letting the ball roll into the penalty area
where Rusek awaited.
Rusek sent the ball to Garek Szusarek, who rock-
eted the ball past a helpless Bieker in goal for a 1-0
Slovakian lead with little time left.
Playing two men short with little or no tihe left,
IFC showed why they are the defending Division Cup
champs, playing inspired soccer despite the odds.
In the 82nd minute, Jeff Nelson beat his man off
the dribble and hit a rocket that the Slovakian goalie
blocked but couldn't hold onto. The ball deflected in
the air to Bugna, who headed it just over the goal.
Seconds later, Lonzo received the ball and ripped
a shot that-the goalie tipped over the crossbar. Then
in the 89th minute the game lasts 90 minutes -
Ken Bowers beat his man in the midfield, somehow
kept the ball in bounds and carried the ball into the
Slovakian goal box. He fired a shot that beat the
goalie far post to tie the score and set off a wild cel-
ebration among the homefield faithful as time ex-
pired.
The tie leaves the IFC adults in second place
with three wins, one loss and four ties.
Come out and support the local teams. IFC is
back in action on Saturday, Nov. 15, with U-8s tak-
ing on Manatee East in a noon game at Abel Elemen-
tary School, Bradenton, the U-12s taking on North
River at 10:15 at the Center, Anna Maria, and the U-
14s playing Venice at 12:15, also at the Center.
Sunday's action has the adults back at their home
field, G.T. Bray Park, Bradenton, taking on DePortivo
Lima at 11 a.m. and the U-14s traveling to Twin Lakes
in Sarasota to play Sarasota 441 at 3:30 p.m.

Anna Maria 'savior' in news again


By Bob Ardren
Outdoor Perspectives
Anna Maria's savior Robert Meale or at least
the Save Anna Maria folks see him that way is back
in the news.
Meale was the administrative law judge who ruled
that the Florida Department of Transportation didn't do
very much right as it planned a high bridge to Anna
Maria to replace the one at Manatee Avenue. Now
Meale has ruled that Collier County can put planning
rules on the use of agricultural land called home by
Florida panthers.
But he's been overruled, sort of.
The "farmers," Baron Collier Partnership by name
and you don't have to know much Florida history for
that name to ring a bell, protested when Collier County
recently decided to put some development controls on
panther habitat in their growth plan.
At issue was a change that called for agricultural
land to have to abide by the comprehensive plan's land-
use restraints that restrict raw land being changed in use
to citrus or other more intense farm use. The problem
was that the land is home to what could be as many as
43 full-time Florida panthers.
Collier (the "farmer") appealed Collier's (the
county's) rule. Enter Meale, who ruled in his recom-
mended orders that agricultural interests should in-
deed abide by land use requirements in other
words, Meale came down on the side of the panthers.
Pointing to a study that shows South Florida is near
the carrying capacity for the remaining panthers, he
went so far as to say that "further habitat loss means

the loss of panthers.".
Florida Department of Community Affairs Secre-
tary James Murley, the guy who has to come down with
final orders, pretty much pooh-poohed Meale's recom-
mended orders and has decided agricultural land should
be exempt from planing rules.
"It's a terrible rule and one we doubt will hold up
under scrutiny," the Tampa Tribune said in an editorial
earlier this week. "The administrative law judge should
hold his ground."
We agree. Murley's decision will essentially free
agriculture from growth regulations, allow farmers to
clear the landscape and change cowboy hats for hard
hats converting to developer.
The land in question is where 43 Florida panthers
have been sighted over recent years, and that's more
than the state even admits survive these days.
Sounds like "our guy" Meale is trying to do good
again. Let's hope he succeeds.

Speaking of agriculture
By now you've probably seen Big Sugar's new
television ads on why it should be part of the "solution
for the Everglades." They've turned 4,000 acres of
sugar cane into an organic farm. Organic sugar cane.
No chemical fertilizers and no pesticides, they
claim. And that's supposed to make them good guys.
Well, actually, instead of chemical fertilizers, Big
Sugar is using raw phosphate rock on its "organic"
sugar cane fields.
That's on 4,000 (2 percent) of its 180,000 acre
holdings. And there's no evidence that raw phosphate

rock pollutes any less than chemical fertilizers, accord-
ing to the South Florida Water Management District.
But it all makes for a great looking television ad
and Big Sugar is hoping you'll believe it. That way it
will have a better chance to slide out of paying the $322
million the state has said it should pay as its part of
cleaning up the Everglades.
Oh boy.

Global warming?
"Only in the United States is global warming still
considered a theory," is my favorite quote on the sub-
ject. That came from a German scientist who's studied
the subject for years.
But last week on the Internet, I found an inter-
view with British scientist James Lovelock who had
some interesting comments of his own on global
warming. Lovelock is best known for developing the
Gaia Hypothesis, a thesis that the Earth is a single,
self-regulating system.
This guy is certainly not a flake. He spent 20 years
with the British National Institute for Medical Research
before striking out as an independent scientist. He was
also recently named as this year's winner of the Blue
Planet Prize by the Asahi Glass Foundation of Tokyo,
in part for his invention of a device called an electron
capture detector that discovered greenhouse gasses are
destroying the ozone layer.
That invention in 1956 enabled two Americans
and a Dutch scientist to win the 1995 Nobel Prize for
their work on the ozone layer and the damage being
done to it.
As I say, the guy is no flake.
Speaking of global warming, Lovelock says it will
take a catastrophe to make people aware of the dangers.
"I don't see anything useful happening until we have
the first environmental disasters, until we are shaken by
the tangible proof the changes we are making to the
world are for the worse.
"I would imagine change will come in a series of
steps rather than gradually. If we are lucky, the first one
will be noticeable and expensive, but not very damag-
ing to people. If it's expensive, then governments will
be obliged to do something about it," Lovelock said.
Meanwhile, in this country we still have the Na-
tional Association of Manufacturers and its friends
in the auto industry spending about $15 million a
year on a public relations campaign designed to dis-
credit global warming.
That $15 million is why global warming is still a
"theory" in this country.
Only in America, though.
See you next week.

Redfish, snook action great right now in backwaters


By Capt. Mike Heistand
Weather permitting, fishing is great right now in
.both the bays and Gulf. Look for redfish and snook in
the backwater, while kingfish are starting to move off-
shore. And be sure to remember that trout should only
be caught and released now.
Fishers at the Rod and Reel Pier are catching a lot
of snook, black drum, lots of flounder and mackerel.
Angela at the Anna Maria City Pier said anglers
there are catching snook, a few sheepshead, flounder,
lots of sting rays but mackerel action has slowed.
Jamie at Miss Cortez Fishing Fleet said the six-
hour trips brought in grouper and Key West grunts. The
nine-hour trips brought in a few grouper.
Annie's Bait & Tackle said that Capt. Zack on the
Dee Jay II is bringing in a mixed bag of fish from the
seagrass flats: snook, reds, flounder and catch-and-re-
lease trout. Open bay fishing is producing cobia, Span-
ish mackerel and pompano. Kings and cobia prevail
offshore but rough weather makes the trips tricky.
Capt. Kurt Morrison and Capt. Jason Henzell on
the Neva-Miss report kingfish in the 15- to 18-pound
range, grouper up to 12 pounds and some four-pound
triggerfish.
Vicki at Island Marine said Earl Carpenter caught


five bonnethead sharks up to four feet long last week.
She said there are good reports of snook and flounder
being caught in the Lake LaVista channel.
Carl at Perico Island Bait & Tackle said since the
cold fronts began coming through the wade fishers
have been doing very good with redfish in about three
feet of water. There are also catches of snook and lots
of flounder. Kingfish are moving through in the Gulf
about six miles out, he added.
Capt. Rick Gross said he's still catching lots of
snook, up to 30 inches long, plus plenty of redfish.
On my boat Magic we're catching lots of reds and
a few keeper snook. Glenn Heilyer and his son from
Cortez brought back a limit catch of snook and redfish
last week.
Capt. Tom Chaya said he's also finding lots of
redfish and a few keeper snook.
Capt. Thom Smith at Angler's Repair said mackerel,
snook,-redfish, trout and snapper were his best bets.
Bill at Island Discount Tackle said you should
enjoy the fishing right now, what with the great re-
ports of snook and reds on the flats. Look for kings,
cobia, grouper, snapper and amberjack offshore
when the weather permits.
Good luck and good fishing.

ANNA MARIA IslNd A GREAT PlACE TO OWN

A border island community and wildlife refuge in the Gulf of Mexico, near Bradenton &
Sarasota and across the bay from Tampa and St. Petersburg. Anna Maria Island is still the
quiet, friendly, non-commercial haven with "Old Florida Charm'.

sugar sand beaches, great fishing, hoofing and spectacular sunsets .... for beautiful living.
Let one of our skilled real estate professionals show you your retirement home, investment
condominium, duplex, beach cottage or even a small business. They will gladly answer your
questions and help you find the perfect property for you. Buy now and be able to enjoy your
investment as it grows in value (current waterfront appreciation is over 15% a year).

and dolphins.
