The Best News.


Islander wins way
to state science fair
Lucina Courtney, 14-year-old Islander, has
won successive science competitions and is
headed for the state science fair in April.
Her winning way is in chemistry, which
her parents pointed out won't get in her way
as the forensic physician she is thinking about
becoming. She is the daughter of Holmes
Beach City Commissioner Luke and mayoral
candidate Joy Courtney.
Lucina, a freshman at Manatee High
School, won that school's science fair in
chemistry, and went on to win the 1998 GTE-
Manatee Regional Science and Engineering
Fair. Those victories take her to the 43rd Sci-
ence and Engineering Fair of Florida at Lake-
land Center April 1-3, all expenses paid.
Her entry at all three events is "Question:
How long does it take Tylenol tablets, caplets
and gel tabs to dissolve in various liquids?" The
answer, she found after various experiments,
was that the original tablet dissolves more rap-
idly than others in warm tap water.



SNo school March 6
There will be no school on Friday, March
6, for all students in Manatee County for
teacher/school improvement inservice.

Island soccer show
The IFC adult soccer team played an exhibition
game against the Manasota Soccer League All-stars
and came away with an easy 3-1 victory. The game,
played Saturday, Feb. 21, at Manatee High School's
Hawkins Stadium in Bradenton, preceded a profes-
sional game between the Tampa Bay Mutiny and the
New York/New Jersey Metro-Stars of the Major Soc-
cer League.
MSC invited the Mutiny to Bradenton for a couple
of games to raise money for their soccer program. And
so, the Mutiny will be back next Saturday, Feb. 28, at
Hawkins Stadium to take on the Kansas City Wizards,
which boasts U.S. national team member Preki as one
of its stars.

were Jim Sebastiano, Division I, Greg Lowman,
Division II, and Nick Sato, Division III. Not pictured

The Islanders didn't wait very long to get on the
score board in their game, as Tim Bugna curled a cor-
ner kick past a surprised Manasota goalie in the fifth
minute to give IFC the lead 1-0.
Eight minutes later, Ken Bowers got taken down at
the top of the goalie box and was awarded a direct kick
on goal. Raul Gomez stepped up and deftly curled
around the wall and into the upper-right corner of the

goal to extend the IFC lead to 2-0.
IFC almost added to its lead in the 15th minute
when Jeff Lonzo stole the ball and carried it around and
through several Manasota defenders before sending it
to Bugna on the wing. Bugna beat his man to the ball
and fired a shot that just went wide of the far post.

SPORTS, FROM PAGE 26
The second half saw the IFC defense being threat-
ened by Manasota a bit more but IFC managed to keep
them at bay for the most part.
IFC added to its lead 10 minutes into the second
half when Gomez brought the ball up the middle before
sending it outside to Neil Fellowes at left wing.
Fellowes held the ball before crossing it to a waiting
Nick LeDuc, who settled the ball before blasting it past
the Manasota goalie for a 3-0 lead.
The ensuing kick-off saw Manasota receive a free
kick near the left sideline. The MFC player sent to the
far post where a waiting striker timed it perfectly to
volley it past IFC goalie Augusto Solano to cut the lead
to 3-1 with 20 minutes left to play.
The Islanders had two more good scoring chances
go unrealized late in the game. First, Bowers beat his
man down the wing before crossing it to Fellowes, who
volleyed the ball up and over the cross bar. Fellowes
figured in the other missed goal when he volleyed a ball
on to Doug Sander, who headed it over the goal to keep
the score 3-1.
Playing well for the Islanders were Bill Brickse,
who came out of retirement to substitute for regular
sweeper Matt Bowers, Bugna, Gomez and Ken Bow-
ers. Solano played a stellar game in goal, especially in
the second half as Manasota stepped up play. Several
good looks on goal were denied by Solano.

The woods are full of champions clone them


By Bob Ardren
Outdoor Perspectives
Florida has more national champion trees than any
other state. And there's a move in the Florida Legisla-
ture, just a small move mind you, but a move, to begin
protecting them.
On top of that effort, a group of Florida conserva-
tionists have gotten together and have begun cloning
some of the champs, to help preserve and propagate the
champion trees superior genes.
They're starting with the champion buttonwood
tree, and are also working on a national champion shav-
ing brush tree and beginning work on our champion
Live oak. What this means is that eventually small
clones of these champion trees will be available in case
you'd like to plant a really fine example of a tree.
Several groups, including the Florida Native Plant
Society, the Horticultural Society of South Florida and
the Champion Tree Project are coordinating the efforts
to find the champion trees in Florida, raise the money


needed, and clone them. The Champion Tree Project
started in Michigan and a newly formed Florida chap-
ter is now doing the work here.
So far the Horticultural Society of South Florida
has planted the first batch of trees, now about 18 inches
tall, creating what it calls an "archival library" of
cloned champion trees.

Enter Flanagan
Our own State Rep. Mark Flanagan, R-Bradenton,
is playing a role in all this too. Flanagan has taken a
copy of the model-tree protection legislation making its
way through the Michigan Legislature and given it to
the powers in Tallahassee.
Staff attorneys in the Legislature are taking a look
at the Michigan proposal, and according to Flanagan,
while it's too late for the upcoming 1998 session it
could be introduced next year. "It's a brand new idea,"
Flanagan said. "It's new to the Florida Legislature."
When I spoke with Flanagan, he emphasized that

he's not sponsoring the proposed bill, at least not
yet. For one thing, he'd like to hear from folks about
how they feel on the subject. I say give him a call at
753-0928.
And one last thing. As usual, Mr. Flanagan's take
and mine on this were somewhat different. I see the
proposed bill as protection for the very best of our trees.
As I understood the legislator, he thinks it's a good
idea because it would allow us to clone the champion
trees so there'd be no real need to protect them "in case
they get in the way of progress."

Skidoos are dead
Sales of personal watercraft have tumbled so badly
that manufacturers are giving away free plane tickets
if you'll buy one. Seriously, on a national basis, sales
are way down.
If you watch a few of the sports channels you'll see
lots of ads touting personal watercraft, and they all in-
clude big discounts and giveaways.
Hey, it may get quiet on the local waters again
one of these days when the numbers of still-operat-
ing crafts diminishes along with the rev, buzz, whine
sounds they produce.

More rain
There's been so much rain lately that folks are ask-
ing again why we still have water restrictions. "And
how long does it take all this rain to get down to the
aquifer anyway?" they want to know.
Truth is, nobody really knows how long it takes
today's rain to end up in the aquifer. But it's not nearly
as fast as, say, scotch over rocks.
Locally we're at pretty much the south end of the
Florida Aquifer, which is fed largely by the Green Swamp
in central Florida just north of Lakeland. That's where this
year's rain has been heaviest, as a matter of fact.
But the aquifer isn't an underground river. You
don't pour a pint of water on the ground in Lakeland
and have it come out of a faucet in Sarasota two weeks
later.
Here in Manatee County where we depend largely
on surface water for drinking, there's even less connec-
tion. We just have a limited storage capacity and when
it's gone, it's gone.
Nobody knows when the rains will stop either.
When they do, the water level in our storage starts to
go down again.
On top of that and this is probably why so many
folks are so often upset with our area water regulator
Swiftmud one of that group's officers told me Mon-
day that the present watering restrictions "are really for
landscaping and lawn maintenance and are seen as
helpful in that endeavor."
In other words, we're doing this for your own
good. Follow our instructions and your plants will
flourish.
Sure, but would you buy a used car from that guy?
Me neither.
To put a positive face on it all, let's just be thank-
ful we don't need to water during the weeks and weeks
of rain we've been having. We've reached saturation
on the surface at least.
See you next week.

Sheepshead, grouper still best fishing bets


Rough weather is keeping offshore action slow, but
on the rare day when the seas are calm enough to get
into the Gulf, look for continued good fishing for grou-
per and snapper. In the backwaters, sheepshead still are
the fish of choice, followed by redfish, trout and a few
small snook.
Anglers at the Rod and Reel Pier are catching a
lot of sheepshead, a few snook, pompano, drum and
flounder. Highlights of the week included a 17-pound
cobia and a seven-pound grouper.
Fishers at the Anna Maria City Pier are catching
nice-sized sheepshead, a few pompano, some jacks and
a few small black-tip sharks.
Jamie at Miss Cortez Fishing Fleet said the trips
are averaging 235 head of black and red grouper, man-
grove and lane snapper, Key West grunts and
rudderfish.
Annie's Bait & Tackle said that Capt. Zack on the
Dee Jay II said he's catching a lot of speckled trout in
the 22-inch range, some six-pound sheepshead, plus
pompano, mangrove snapper and redfish.
Capt. Kurt Morrison and Capt. Jason Henzell on
the Neva-Miss said they're putting charters onto black
grouper in the 10-pound range and five-pound man-
grove snapper.
Lee at Perico Island Bait & Tackle said fishers
are catching a lot of trout, a few redfish, some sheeps-
head and flounder. Pompano are biting in the passes
and along the beaches and grouper action is excellent
in about 60 feet of water in the Gulf.
Capt. Rick Gross said he's finding redfish here
and there, a few pompano and lots of sheepshead.
Capt. Thom Smith at Angers Repair said he's
getting reds and sheepshead in Miguel Bay and from

Capt. Tom Chaya said his best bets are redfish
and sheepshead, although he reports good catches of
trout and pompano, too.
Bill at Island Discount Tackle said offshore ac-
tion has been a little rough, but when you can get away
from shore grouper action remains excellent. Snapper
season is starting to pick up, too. In the backwaters,
there are lots and lots of sheepshead plus a few reds and
pompano. Bill also predicts another month or so before
white bait starts to show up.
Good luck and good fishing.

58th Street closed, new road planned


By Pat Copeland
Islander Reporter
The Holmes Beach City Commission last week ac-
complished its goal to vacate 58th Street but also ap-
peased residents displeased by the closing with the cre-
ation of a new 58th Street.
"We did a traffic count and the numbers the po-
lice chief reported along with the calls from resi-
dents there indicated the closing would create more
problems than we anticipated," Commission Chair-
man Don Maloney explained.
The commission planned to close the street to
make way for the new city complex when Flotilla
Drive area residents began circulating petitions
against the plan. Residents maintained that the clo-


sure would hinder evacuation in case of an emer-
gency and cause further congestion at busy intersec-
tions.
Architect Pat Fletcher presented a plan for a new
street to be cut through from Flotilla to Marina Drive,
north of the new city hall complex.
"It did not move any closer into the open land-
scaped area or the junior soccer field," Fletcher said.
"This has several nice features you're not driving
through the parking lot because traffic for city business
will come through the city hall entrance way. By
straightening this out, we pick up about four or five
new parking spaces with minimal cost."
One resident asked what the width of the street will
be and whether residents will have unrestricted access.


Fletcher said he drew the street at 24 feet, wider
than the current 58th Street, and residents will use the
street just as they use 58th Street now.
Another resident asked about flooding on the
street.
"A lot of the flooding is going to be rectified to
some degree by the drainage program that comes with
the new building," Public Works Superintendent Joe
Duennes replied.
Resident Billie Martini asked if the new street will
be built before the old one is eliminated.
Duennes said the city can construct a temporary
shell street immediately but completion of the new 58th.
Street will be done in conjunction with paving the new
city parking lot to save money.

Grant request could save


Anna Maria $25,000


By Andrew White
Islander Reporter
City of Anna Maria officials are trying to prove
that the environmental regulations of the Community
Development Block Grant do not apply to the work
they propose to do.
If they succeed it could save taxpayers the esti-
mated $25,000 cost of an environmental impact state-
ment.
The $500,000 grant awarded to the city will be
used to address drainage problems and lay 3,300 feet
of sidewalks.


The end of Hardin Street would benefit from the
grant's improvements. Islander Photo: Andrew White


According to an environmental assessment pre-
pared by grant administrator Betty Jordan the projected
drainage improvement and installation of sidewalks are
not applicable to the statutory regulations of the grant.
The regulations mostly deal with protected proper-
ties like wetlands and wild and scenic rivers, but also
go into water quality, noise and waste disposal, none of
which are foreseen to be significantly affected by the
grant work, she said.
Jordan states in the assessment that the impact of
the grant project will possibly be beneficial in areas of
erosion and storm water removal. The project is in con-
formance with the comprehensive plan and zoning and
is compatible with urban impact in the area. Any incon-
venience from construction would be temporary.
The final conclusion is that there will be "no sig-
nificant effect on the environment."
Based on this conclusion the city is filing a request
to the Florida Department of Community Affairs to re-
move the environmental conditions associated with the
grant. If the request is accepted it would nullify the
city's requirement to file an environmental impact
statement.
The city has made public notice of the request and
has invited public disagreement until Feb. 28 when the
formal request will be filed with the DCA.

EL NINO STRIKES AGAIN
The "train" of bad weather spawned by the Pacific
Ocean condition known as El Nino dumped almost 8
1/2 inches of rain on the Island last week and produced
hurricane-force wind gusts. ,
Hardest hit was an area from 63rd Street to Gulf
Boulevard in Anna Maria Thursday night. In Holmes
Beach 21 cars had windows shattered. In Anna Maria,
roofs blew off houses and huge trees were toppled. ".
There were no injuries as a result of the storm.

Yet another grant applied for in Bradenton Beach


By Paul Roat
With the last project still pending, commissioners in
Bradenton Beach agreed to move forward on yet another
application for a $550,000 grant for revitalizing the
"blighted area" of the city.
Deadline for submitting the next Community Devel-
opment Block Grant to the Florida Department of Com-
munity Affairs is March 31. If the city is successful in its
grant application and receives funding, any work done
must be in the "blighted," or historic old town, district of
the city, which is from Cortez Road to Fifth Street South.
Commissioners agreed to proceed with sidewalks on
the east and west side of Gulf Drive from Cortez Road to
Third Street South if they receive state funding. The area
adjacent to the sidewalks would be landscaped and feature
streetlights, benches and trash receptacles in a theme simi-
lar to Bridge Street, focus of the first CDBG grant six
years ago.
Secondary work, if funds are available, would be fo-
cused on the west side of Bridge Street from Gulf Drive
to the beach in the form of concrete paving blocks and a
pedestrian walkway. The city also hopes to landscape and
install sidewalks along Bay Drive South from Bridge
Street to Third Street South.
If successful in the CDBG grant application, it will be
the third such funding the city has received and bring state


Open house at Island
museum March 4
In conjunction with Manatee County Heri-
tage Days, the Anna Maria Island Historical So-
ciety Museum, 402 Pine Ave., Anna Maria, will
host an open house for all ages from 10 a.m. to 8
p.m. Wednesday, March 4. Admission is free.
Tours by docents in costume, demonstrations
of early Island crafts, photo opportunities at the
old Anna Maria City Jail and a chance to select
from a large assortment of specialty items in the
museum gift shop will be among the highlights.
Early settler's bread, hot from the oven, will be
available as long as supplies last.

funding for the historic old town area to more than $1.5
million.
The cost breakdown for the pending grant application
has construction at $424,800, engineering at $81,200 and
administration at $44,000.
Bradenton Beach is almost suffering from too much
of a good thing when it comes to grants. According to
Robert Johnson, the grant administrator for the city with
the firm Clark Roumelis and Associates, applicants are
scored through a points system. A total of 1,000 points
may be allocated to an applicant; 250 are based on cen-
sus data based on need and, due to the revitalization of the
city in the past few years, Johnson estimated Bradenton
Beach would receive only 45 points in that category.
To make up the difference and bring Bradenton
Beach into a competitive level to receive state money,
Johnson recommended a little financial legerdemain
within the city's budget categories. By allocating some
spending in different areas, additional state points can be
.received while not changing the overall budget too dras-
tically, Johnson said.
Examples of the point leveraging include using work
done by Manatee County for water and sewer line im-
provements as a matching fund for state grants. Work
done on the Bradenton Beach City Pier through another
state grant may also be used to gain the city points through
the CDBG process.
Another area that could reap the city extra points is the
establishment of an "architectural design guideline" for
Bradenton Beach, Johnson said. "It can be something as
basic as not allowing clotheslines in front yards," Johnson
said of the design guideline.
Another point-getter would be the hiring of a welfare
program recipient, another state program that helps pro-
vide jobs for low-income or welfare recipients.
Commissioners unanimously approved Johnson's
proposals (Mayor Connie Drescher absent due to illness)
with the condition that the budget amendments, hiring of
personnel and other items be brought back to the commis-
sion individually for ratification.
The decision to proceed with the next grant follows
on the heels of a not-quite-finished streetscape project
along Gulf Drive from Bridge Street to Second Street and
improvements to First Street. Although most of the side-


walk, drainage and landscape work has been completed
on that project, streetlights are still unfinished.
The manufacturer of the lights has agreed that a de-
sign fault causes them to leak when it rains and allows
water to fill the glass globes that house the light bulbs. The
grant contractor, Mega Force Contractors, posted a bond
to allow the CDBG grant to be closed out pending the light
maker's repair of the lights.
Bradenton Beach is not the only city on the Island to
reap the benefits of state grants, although it is the most
successful. Anna Maria received $500,000 late last year
from the CDBG program and intends to use the money for
drainage and sidewalk improvement. Holmes Beach has
applied for state grants, but was rejected due to not hav-
ing an area sufficiently "blighted" to qualify for the im-
provement program.

Sidewalk enhancement OK'd in Bradenton Beach
Bradenton Beach sidewalks may be getting a little
higher and dryer, thanks to the Florida Department of
Transportation.
Bradenton Beach Vice Mayor John Chappie has
been twisting the figurative arm of the state road de- .- ..- ,
apartment for several months to try and get it to elevate .. .- l ..,,.: ." ...
and widen the sidewalk along the east side of Gulf
Drive from Cortez Road to its intersection with Avenue s .........- .
C.
Chappie received a letter from DOT Maintenance .....-: *
Contracts Coordinator Ken Akers last week stating
their plans to "raise the sidewalk ... to prevent water .
from standing on the sidewalk."
Chappie said he also hoped to have them widen the
sidewalk to five feet.
DOT is doing the work because the sidewalk is
within the DOT right of way.
The problem, as anyone who has tried to walk or
bicycle on the path quickly finds out, is that the side-
walk was constructed below the crown of the road. Any
time it rains, water flows from Gulf Drive onto the
path, flooding the sidewalk and, when the rain evapo- .A -- .
rates, covering the concrete with a thick layer of mud. .
Akers said the work would begin after April 30. No
ae bFlooded sidewalks in Bradenton Beach may soon be a thing of the past. Islander Photo: Paul Roat
date for completion has been given as yet.


Holmes Beach ball field agreement pitched back to county


After numerous draft agreements, many months
and a surprise retraction of a past agreement by Mayor
Bob VanWagoner, the interlocal agreement between
the City of Holmes Beach and Manatee County for a
baseball field is headed back to the county for approval.
Commissioners last week instructed the mayor to
sign the the newest version of the agreement that pro-
vides $50,000 in county money for the construction of
a Babe Ruth/Little League ball field behind city hall.
The county will install a "backstop, permanent
field fencing and an irrigation system for the baseball
field," according to the agreement. The total cost for
materials and labor provided by the county "shall not
exceed $50,000."
Commissioner Carol Whitmore questioned a stipula-


tion for permanent fencing surrounding the outfield, which
could restrict the open area needed to play soccer.
"At this point in time, it's set for permanent fenc-
ing," Commissioner Luke Courtney replied. "The field
to the right [of the baseball field] will be large enough
for soccer."
Architect H. Patterson Fletcher said a regulation
soccer field is 195 by 360 feet and the remaining open
space will only be 192 by 305 feet.
"A smaller-sized soccer field for kids will fit in
here perfectly, but it won't take the adult-size field,"'
Fletcher said.
The Island Football Club and the Anna Maria Is-
land Community Center have asked for open space for
a regulation soccer field in the past. According to club


organizer Kevin Cassidy, the space needed for adult
and youth regulation soccer --is 50 by 100 yards for
play, plus runoff room. He said the fields at G.T. Bray
Park in Bradenton are typically 65 by 110 yards.
The area needed is very close to regulation size,
agreed Cassidy and Scot Dell, program director for the
Center. "It's workable if we get some cooperation
on the baseball field fencing," Dell said.
The Center presently has two junior-sized soccer
fields but does not have space for a regulation-sized
field.
Courtney said after the meeting he spoke to Danny
Hopkins, director of Manatee County Parks and Rec-

Restaurateur indicted on federal theft charges


By Jim Hanson
Islander Correspondent
Anthony DeFeo, the flamboyant 32-year-old who
rode into town in a limo two years ago to buy into the
Island and Cortez, has been indicted following an FBI
investigation.
A federal grand jury in Tampa last week accused
DeFeo of stealing more than $300,000 during his op-
eration of a restaurant he opened in Sarasota at the
same time he was making his moves here.
U.S. Department of Justice attorneys also claim he
bilked investors with a fraudulent financial statement
designed to show his net worth as $11 million.
DeFeo was taken into federal custody last week, the
U.S. attorney's office said, and was held at an undisclosed

reaction, about the permanent fencing indicated in the
agreement.
"All we [the city] have to do is write a letter to
Hopkins saying we want a removable fence, so we can
utilize more of the open field for soccer," Courtney said.
Although the county will be installing the irrigation
system for the ball field, it is the city's responsibility
to supply water and operate the system.
The commission voted to use a $6,000 grant from the
Rex Hagen Foundation to install a well to supply water to
irrigate the ball field, the open field, the area surrounding
the new city hall complex and the fire station.

Karen Bell of the Bell company said suspicions
rose over DeFeo's plan, since lobsters are frozen where
they're caught. And he quibbled over whether to keep
the dozen or more fishing boats Bell owned, she said.

Mom, apple pie and AMILL
Nothing could be more home-spun than the city of
Anna Maria. Nothing that is but Little League baseball here.
On Saturday, Feb. 28, at 9 a.m. you'll have a chance to
partake in the old-fashioned fun of a parade as the ball play-
ers, coaches and supporters march from the Baptist Church
to the Anna Maria Island Community Center.
The pied pipers of baseball will lead their throngs to
Benji Scanio Memorial Stadium at the Center for a day of
exhibition games starting at 10 a.m.
It's a time-honored tradition, a slice of-Americana and
the signal of spring on Anna Maria Island.
The Center's ballpark was built with the sweat of vol-
unteers in 1959 and enhanced over the years with more
volunteer efforts, adding dugouts, fencing, field lights and
yes, a concession stand.
We all remember last year's battle with the city of Anna
Maria over the concession stand, don't we?
Little League 1998 will begin with a sad note for the
passing of Coach Lou Fiorentino last month. At age 53, we
all expected Lou to be here for awhile, mentoring kids and
sharing his extreme love for baseball.
One of Lou's greatest compliments came from retired
professional ballplayer, manager and scout Birdie Tebbetts
of Anna Maria who said Lou was "one of the greatest fans"
he'd ever met "if not the greatest."
Tebbetts was known for being one of the most educated
players of his day, beginning a career in the 1930s with a
college degree.
Lou admired Birdie for the great ballplayer he was and
the great friend he became. They spent plenty of time to-
gether talking baseball. Lou knew tons of statistics and
Birdie knew real stories to go with them. Together they were
a baseball frenzy.
We're missing another coach this year. Sidelined by
illness and sorely missing the promise of excitement for his
past and returning players on Betsy Hills teams is Cracker's
Crumb columnist Gib Bergquist.
And so we'll have a season for Lou and Gib. And if all
goes well, we'll soon have a Babe Ruth team with kids who
remember them playing on a new field in Holmes Beach.
Lou Fiorentino was a candidate for mayor with a per-
sonal agenda in the upcoming Holmes Beach election be-
fore he succumbed to heart problems. He wanted to finish
the field and name it for Birdie.
We too hope to see the new field named for Birdie
Tebbetts, even though he'll protest any amount of flattery.
Tebbetts helped build the original field in Anna Maria and
long ago put up his own money for a memorial there to a
good friend, ballplayer and fellow manager Fred
Hutchinson, a victim of cancer in 1964.
It would have made Lou proud to accomplish his goal
and we sincerely hope to make it happen on his behalf a
mirror of Anna Maria's baseball history. Let's make this a
great season.

Bicyclists 'disappointed'
In response to The Islander Bystander's Feb. 18
story, "Island bike lane projects in jeopardy:"
It is truly a sad time for the new millennium on
Anna Maria Island because of the fact that still there
are no bike lanes on any roads throughout the Island.
Seeing that bicycles were around before automo-
biles, the year 2000 will probably still see an infra-
structure designed strictly for automobiles and not
for human beings to be able to safely walk or use
alternative means of transportation to get around.
That's truly very sad.
We found the "missing 1.1 miles" which would
have been able to connect the three cities and that
was the recent repaving of Gulf Drive back in Octo-
ber from SR 64 to Marina Drive right in front of City
Hall. Was any foresight given to the fact that four-
foot shoulders could be added at that time which
would eventually connect Anna Maria City and
Bradenton Beach via Gulf Drive? It seems one hand
was not watching what the other was doing at that
time! Someone please explain why this was not
done?
Oh well, I guess we and others will continue to
cycle the Island, taking our lives into our hands, and
continue to upset motorists when they cannot pass us
and possibly cause accidents, etc. Actually, when the
traffic comes to a standstill on the Island eventually,
because people are afraid to ride a bicycle to get
around, we will ride by waving to all the stuck mo-
torists as they sit in gridlock with a smile.
We are disappointed with Holmes Beach and
DOT.
Mr. and Mrs. Wayne Natt, Holmes Beach

A job for SAM?
The one thing the City of Anna Maria does not
need is a shopping mall. There are already enough
problems with traffic, safety and parking at the city pier
without adding more congestion.
We also do not need to change the comprehensive
plan in order to allow a speculator to build six or seven
houses where in a normal residential area (R-l) only
four could be constructed.


By Egan


SAM (Save Anna Maria), where are you? We need
to save the ambience and quaintness of our community
and protect it from those who increase commercialism
and build a "duplex city" development.
Stop the insanity! Enough already!
Dorothy F. Perricone, Anna Maria City

'Dream has ended'
The dream of a new bridge has ended. The DOT
will now allocate the funds which were to finance a
new bridge to other projects in the state.
We are in an era of frivolous lawsuits: hot cof-
fee spills, silicone implants, tobacco, etc. Who on
Anna Maria Island and in Holmes Beach will be the
recipient of a major lawsuit brought about by an in-
dividual suffering with a heart attack or a mass of
injuries caused by an accident and not being able to
get to the mainland for medical treatment because
the bridge is either stuck in the open position or be-
cause some 20-foot sailboat with an oversized mast
has facilitated the bridge to be opened?
It appears to me that the economy of the Island
is dependent on the tourist trade and absentee snow-
bird owners of property who spend at least six
months a year here and pay premium taxes here, not
the year-round residents who mainly want to keep
the Island in a "horse and buggy stage."
My guess is that many of the people who fought
the building of this bridge never venture away from
the Island on a weekend. They would not tolerate the
hold-ups and traffic on the bridge.
I appreciate the fact that it seems nice to keep a
rustic appearance. However, the reasons for reject-
ing the bridge were far-fetched and weak.
If they had asked the tourists and snow-bird land
owners what they think, you would be surprised at
the overwhelming support for a new bridge.
Paul N. Heins, Holmes Beach

Valentine thank yous
Thank you for sharing the heart-warming story in
the Feb. 11 Stir-it-up section. I appreciate your sensi-
tivity and your paper. Magnificant!

THOSE WERE THE BAYS
Part 16, The Drowsy Thirties
by June Alder



John R. Jones
was an
S.. amateur
horticulturist
who grew
S many species
of exotic
4 plants on the
Island,
believing
i Anna Mairia
had a great
future in the
agricultural
.' business.


'MIND YOUR OWN


BUSINESS'


Attorney John R. Jones was in the
minority on Anna Maria Island. He was
an ardent defender of Catholicism, a
determined Democrat and a vehement
opponent of Prohibition.
He accused Protestants of spread-
ing false rumors about Catholics, such
as that nuns in Tampa were murdering
their illegitimate children and burying
them beneath Sacred Heart Church. He
offered a reward of $1,000 for proof of
the allegations that the Pope would
send his "navy" to put a Catholic in the
White House.
Here's one of Jones' polemics
against Prohibition:

To the Editor:
The late American humorist,
Artemus Ward, said that one time on his
travels the train stopped at a station for
"10 minutes of refreshment." Beckon-
ing to a waiter who stood at the door of
the station saloon Artemus asked him to
bring a toddy, which was done.
While Artemus was stirring his
beverage a long-faced man in a big
choker collar and tie to match touched
him on the shoulder and said in a grave-
yard tone, "Look not upon the wine
when it is red."
"But this ain't wine," replied
Artemus, "This is old rye."
"It biteth like a serpent and stingeth
like an adder," said the long-faced man.
"Not when you put sugar in it," said
Artemus, "which is the way I always
take mine."
"Ah," replied the other, turning
away. "This is a cold world."
"Yes," came the answer, "but
you'll soon get into a hotter one if you
don't mind your own business and let
other people's alone."
This was told in the days before the
tragical farce of Prohibition was foisted
upon the nation, and whether true or
not, illustrates the situation we're in. It
is the experience that whenever tried,
this law cannot be enforced (Canada for


instance).
Why? Because public sentiment is
against it. Laws against murder, rob-
bery, criminal assault, etc., are sus-
tained because society demands their
enforcement.
As soon as you begin to dictate to
citizens as to what they must eat and
drink and how they must act, and apply
force to bring them to your own views,
immediately there is revolt temper is
up and they will proceed to defy such
laws as attacks on their personal liberty.
We forget that thousands who be-
lieve in the Christian religion are fight-
ing these laws especially the Prohi-
bition law on principle, because they
look upon them as against the teaching
and practice of the founder of Christian-
ity.
Certain fair cities in Florida and
elsewhere closed the movies, stopped
harmless games and recreation on Sun-
day or "the Sawbath," as some call
it and one of them stated, in the
name of certain godly organizations,
that they were determined (by force of
law, of course) to make of said munici-
pality "a god-fearing city."
They have beautifully succeeded in
doing so, especially on Sundays, for most
citizens who own an auto take to the
woods and beaches where they will be
free from the interference of blue laws.
Then some good people wonder
why church attendance is falling off.
The reason is clear. Between fights of
Fundamentalists and Modernists, many
of the churches, as they are called, do
not know "where they're at," and feel
the ground slipping away from under
them. They conclude the Gospel has
failed, so they say we must appeal to the
law and force the people into our way of
thinking P. KNUTS (John R. Jones)

Sunday for a pancake breakfast and bake sale. The next breakfast is March 1 from 8 to 11:30 a.m. at the
church, 248 S. Harbor Drive, Holmes Beach.


Artist Keller-McCartney
has lots to celebrate
Anna Maria artist Debron Keller-McCartney has a
lot to celebrate during Women's History Month.
All three artworks Keller-McCartney submitted
have been chosen for display at a national, juried, all-
media exhibition titled "Fem-i-nie n women collec-
tively: womankind" to be held Feb. 27 through March
29 at the 621 Gallery in Tallahassee. A total of 65
pieces thematically concerned with women and/or their
issues were selected from 435 entries submitted by 165
artists from 26 states.
Keller-McCartney's entries include her three-di-
mensional, mixed-media "Sharks Teeth Heels" and two
pottery plates titled "Women With Feather Hat" and
"Women With Red Lips."
"Heels" are shell-encrusted ladies' pumps, with ap-
proximately 130 shells and 30 sharks' teeth on each
heel. They are the first pair in a series the artist calls all-
natural functional fantasies.
Included in the exhibit's catalog is Keller-
McCartney's statement, "I dedicate 'Sharks Teeth
Heels' to all the female Florida tourists as a reminder
of Florida's beauty of the beach. The humor is know-
ing we women would love to find these in a kitschy
tourist trinket shop!"

uled outside Studio 121, located at 121 Bridge St. in

The Island Poet
Most folks who come down south to spend their remaining years,
Will leave their children and friends in a flood of tears.
'Cause what really bothers them the most as they go away,
Is that they won't be seeing them for many a day.
But when they get to their home and have an extra room,
I am sure that a great big smile will soon displace their gloom.
For when it gets real cold up north they shall have no fear,
'Cause you can bet your bottom dollar those kids will come down here.
Bud Atteridge

Holmes Beach candidates sound off


By Pat Copeland
Islander Reporter
Holmes Beach voters will take to the polls on
March 10 to vote for a new mayor and two new com-
missioners.
Mayoral candidates are Joy Courtney and current
Commissioners Ron Robinson and Carol Whitmore.
Commission candidates are Sandy Haas-Martens,
Mike Heistand, Roger Lutz and Joan Perry.
The following are profiles of each candidate, their
responses to a question posed by The Islander By-
stander and their goals for the city.





Joy Courtney
Joy Courtney has owned and operated Haley's
Motel with her husband Luke since they came to the
Island in 1989. Luke is a Holmes Beach city commis-
sioner. Their 15-year-old daughter Lucina is a fresh-
man at Manatee High
School.
Before moving to the
Island, Courtney served in
the U.S. Marine Corps for
S three years and the reserve
for 17 years, was a travel
S consultant and was worked
in administration for a lodg-
Sing company in California.
CourtneAs a Holmes Beach
resident, Courtney has been
involved in government, civic and arts activities. Gov-
ernment activities include service on the city's charter
review commission and citizens' advisory committees
to Island and area transportation groups. Civic involve-
ment includes Save Anna Maria, the Holmes Beach
Civic Association and school and Girl Scout activities.
Her arts participation includes the Island Players and
Chapel Players.


Courtney was on the staff of the Island Sun for two
years and worked for the Islander Bystander for five
years.

Q: What solution do you foresee to providing a cellu-
lar phone tower?
A: It's a question of control of location. The only
hope for the current mess is for the commission to al-
low the referendum. If the referendum is approved, the
people are back in control of location and we can put
a cellular tower in the least obtrusive area of the city,
which is on city property.
The next step is to get the declaration of cellular
service as an essential service off the books as soon as
possible. People don't realize that means cellular pro-
viders can put their towers or mobile units anywhere
sewer lines or electric poles are built.
The third step is to set the criteria so that the city
benefits financially from the billions this new technol-
ogy is generating and protects itself as well.

Goals for the city
Be the citizens' voice in cleaning up the cellular
location issue.
Reduce the millage rate from 2.25 to 1.75 percent.
See that the Key Royale Bridge is replaced using
state and federal funds.
Ensure the proper repair of the Anna Maria
Bridge and work to eliminate other regulations made
in preparation for the now defunct high bridge.
Propose the removal of portable classrooms at
Anna Maria Elementary because it is located in a high
hazard area.
Keep a close watch on the city hall construction
project to avoid cost overruns.


Ron Robinson
Ron Robinson has been a Holmes Beach commis-
sioner for the past two years. He and his wife LaDonna
have four daughters, one son and six grandchildren.
Before moving to the Island, Robinson served in


the U.S. Navy for three
years, and was employed
with Cincinnati Bell Tele-
phone Company for 35
years, 30 of those in supervi-
sory and management posi-
tions. He also represented
the company with the North-
ern Kentucky Chamber of ,
Commerce.
He served on the Boone Robinson
County, Ky., commission
for eight years and his civic activities include the
Boone County Board of Health, the tri-state regional
planning council, chairman of the Kentucky Develop-
mental Disabilities Planning Council and the Northern
Kentucky Association for the Retarded. He is a gradu-
ate of Leadership Kentucky and Leadership Northern
Kentucky.

Q: What will your role be in regard to advisory
boards, i.e. planning and code enforcement?
A: My role will be to select the most qualified
people I can find. I expect those boards to be autono-
mous. It's not my place to appear before them in order
to influence them unless I do so at the direction of the
commission.
I'm quite confident that there are a lot of talented
people in Holmes Beach who can sit on those boards
and make the proper decisions. I'll also make sure
those boards receive the city staff support necessary for
them to function as they should.

Goals for the city
Have a working relationship with the commission
so we can arrive at decisions without animosity. I'll
achieve that by recognizing that my job is to carry out
the policies and directives of the commission, whether
I agree with them or not.
Provide the staff support required by the commis-

harmonious and not adversarial.

drainage ditches and streets.
Have a top-down budget by setting a dollar limit

Carol Whitmore
Carol Whitmore has lived on the Island for 29
years and served on the city commission for the past
seven years. She is married to Dr. Andre Renard and
has a daughter Janae, 14, a
freshman at Manatee High
School.
Whitmore is a regis-
tered nurse and licensed risk
manager. She is currently
/ I the administrator. of her
husband's surgical practice.
She served as president of
the AIDS Council of Mana-
Whitmore tee in 1995 and 1996 and
helped write a $200,000
federal assistance grant for local AIDS patients.

Q: What is your opinion of increased staffing during
the past two administrations in the police, public
works and general government?
A: I don't think a lot of it was necessary. The com-
mission was not given any input before the mayor created
-and filled positions. The police department promised there
would be no increase in staffing and then it requested a
marine officer, which I voted against. I think we should
cross-train our employees to pick up the load in other de-
partments when they are not so busy.

Goals for the city
SRestore integrity to the mayor's office.

the Beach


Improve relations with county, local and state

Q: What is your position on adding a soccer field to
the agreement with the county for installation of a
Babe Ruth baseball field at city hall.
A: I favor installing a soccer field. I want to have
something for the Island community, both children and
adults. The city field is the best place because it's in the
center of the Island and the Anna Maria Island Com-
munity Center doesn't have enough space.

nancial decisions to protect the community from un-
necessary tax increases.
Represent the interests of the city and be acces-

Mike Heistand has owned and operated a charter
fishing business on the Island for 17 years. His wife
Cheryl is an Island native.
He has two children attend-
ing college.
Heistand worked for the
city's public works depart-
ment for 15 years before re-
signing in 1996. He served

12 years and as code en-
forcement officer for three
years. He is a supporter of Heistand
the Anna Maria Island Com-
munity Center.

Q: What is your opinion of the outdoor dining re-
straints regarding seating and table limitations?
A: It would have to be solved on an individual
basis depending on the restaurant's circumstances.
Their business is reduced if they have to take tables
outside and not replace them inside but it also creates
the need for more parking spaces for the business.

Goals for the city
Work for a more common sense form of govern-
ment.
Restore the balance of power in city government.
Investigate and correct the city's internal problems.

Roger Lutz
Roger Lutz is a trial lawyer with the firm of Lutz,
Webb, Partridge and Bobo in Sarasota. He and his wife
Linda have a nine-year-old daughter Elizabeth.
Lutz received his undergraduate degree from
Marshall University in West Virginia and a law degree
from the University of Mis-
sissippi. His principal areas of
practice are commercial liti-
gation, medical malpractice,
S products liability, personal
injury and wrongful death.
Lutz served as both
chief assistant public de-
fender and first assistant state
attorney for the Twelfth Judi-
Lutz cial Circuit of Florida. He was
appointed to the Florida
Board of Medicine in 1981 by Gov. Bob Graham.
He has served on various state and national medi-
cal/health care committees, on the board of the Federa-
tion of State Medical Boards of the U.S. for three years
and its long-range planning committee and on the city's
code enforcement board for two years.

Q: Will you favor collecting a share of the school tax
funding for city infrastructure if a proposed five-year
extension is approved? How would you spend the
money?
A: No. It ought to be used for schools and educational
purposes. However, if every other local municipality takes
a share, we shouldn't donate ours to the county. We should
use it for infrastructure that relates to educational purposes
including adult education, not new city halls or settling
lawsuits over cellular phone towers.

Goals for the city
Help the city operate in a more sensible and effi-
cient way and help it get out of and avoid costly and
unnecessary lawsuits.
Beautify the city by enlisting the aid of business
and residents and applying for grants.
Take a hard look at the city's budget.

Joan Perry
Joan and her husband Jerry moved to Holmes
Beach three years ago from Kentucky. They are the
parents of three grown chil-
dren.
Perry earned a degree in
English from the College of
S3 William and Mary and a
master's degree in counseling
.--..- psychology from the Univer-
sity of Pittsburgh. She was a
teacher and school counselor
before beginning her family.
Perry While raising her children,
Perry was active in local, re-
gional and state government programs including drug
education, home meal delivery, conservation, recycling,
water review and economic planning and development.
For eight years she served as a county deputy judge/ex-
ecutive, which she says is similar to a county manager.
As a Holmes Beach resident she has been involved
in local, regional and state issues, serves on the city's
code enforcement board and is chairman of the Island
Flood Mitigation Committee.

Q: Can you revive the Island Transportation Plan-
ning Organization and become more aggressive re-
garding the future rehabilitation of the Anna Maria
Bridge to include safety and bike lanes?
A: I'm experienced in working with transportation
officials and every bridge I've very had anything to do
with, I've brought in under cost. The bridge definitely
needs deck repair, and the chance to save millions of dol-
lars by adding bike lanes without endangering the sea
grasses and manatee habitat is an excellent idea. As for
safety lanes, I would have to see the engineering design.
It's not the commission's position to revive the
ITPO, but I think it can work if we have people who are
listening and work on developing consensus-building
skills. There ought to be some way to open up the pro-
cess to more citizen involvement.

Goals for the city
Oppose increases in millage rates and unwar-
ranted expenditures.
Work to lower Island residents' flood insurance
premiums.
Preserve the city's zoning codes.
Repair the Anna Maria Bridge.
Support the county's plan for Island-wide bike lanes.

WOW program proceeding,
parts starting soon
The program to introduce youngsters to the World
of Work is off and running, with startup costs whittled
a bit and plans being made for financing.
World of Work is the tag tied to the proposal to ac-
quaint Anna Maria School students with post-school ca-
reer prospects, since not all of them are college bound.
Its initiator and prime mover, school Principal Jim
Kronus, has organized a steering committee to chart the
ambitious program's course over the next few months.
On the committee with Kronus are Janet Aubry, Don
Schroder of the Anna Maria Island Chamber of Com-
merce and Cindy Harrison, school guidance counselor.
Meeting last Friday at the school, the committee
cut startup costs from the initially estimated $25,000 to
a total of $20,000 to $22,000. It also charted the launch-
ing this spring of its "shadowing" program, and began
exploring means of raising money. It will draw more
detailed working plans at its next meeting March 9.
The immediate plan is for five computer work sta-
tions with information on various careers in business,
trades, arts and other fields carrier options not requir-
ing university training, said Kronus.
Ultimately the program will have 20 to 25 such
work stations, enough to give all the students research
and education time and, not incidentally, open the sta-
tions to.adults not involved in the school system. That
phase will begin with trainers to keep the project open
to the public after school, said Kronps.
"Shadowing" can start fairly soon, he said, with
children tagging along with a businessman or crafts-
man for a day or half-day, one on one, to see what that
particular trade has to offer.
"We're recruiting businesses now," said Kronus.
"They will be the beginning, with many other work
areas following as we go along.
"We're going to start by asking children what they
want to know,an and asking businesses and craftsmen
what they want to show children that will be useful."
Business recruitment will be largely the job of the
chamber's Schroder. He also will be working on ar-
ranging a business partner for each classroom, explain-
ing to youngsters his or her means of making a mean-
ingful life and living, how kids can get into that busi-
ness or trade or profession.
As for raising money, the Kiwanis Club already has
put in $500 and the Bradenton Beach Festival $1,000, plus
$500 worth of computer software from various donors.

New in town?
I've been acutely reminded that there are new
people in town specifically, lots of new people on
the Island.
What could serve as a more blatant reminder
than a line of traffic from the Village of Cortez,
across the bridge to Bradenton Beach and north on
Gulf Drive to Shells restaurant in Holmes Beach?
At 4:30 p.m. last Sunday everyone and their
brother and all their cousins were departing Anna
Maria Island for the mainland.
The line-up for the Anna Maria Island Bridge on
Manatee Avenue was strung around Gulf Drive, also
to the north, past Marina Drive.
It really doesn't pay to be in a hurry this time of
year.
Relax, enjoy the view, turn up the radio (sorry,
Jim Kissick) and leave home early for whatever your
destination. Leave home very early. Allow double
the normal travel time to get to appointments or to
make it for reservations lest your table be awarded
to the next person in line.
That's my best advice.
With that in mind, I've also been made keenly
aware that lots of returning snowbirds missed some


of the changes that we Islanders watched evolve
over the summer.
We'become keenly aware of such things by count-
ing on fingers and toes the number of people who come
in our office every week to ask "What's new?"
"What happened to Island Foods?" is the most-
asked question. We answered that last week with
news that Publix has bought the property but being
big and corporate, they're moving slowly. The com-
pany has not yet applied for a demolition permit for
the old "Foodway" let alone submitted new site
plans.
Did the store next door to us in the Island Shop-
ping Center close, they ask, referring to the victorian
gift shop "Sugar and Spice."
Well, with the storefront obviously empty, yes is
the easy answer. The owners had another store in
North Carolina and decided to focus their attention
there. They did not .move anywhere else on Anna
Maria, we're sorry to say and all the nice people that
come by are sorry to hear.
Egad. Turtles is gone. Lots of repeat visitors ask
"What happened to Turtles?"
Well, Turtles, the rock and roll club, was gone
last winter too. Last year it turned into Toscano, Ital-
ian fare with a sign depicting a naked statue of David
(sans private parts).
The Toscano chef apparently took ill during sea-
son and with the menu and customer loyalty suffer-
ing as a result, they closed.
Enter new restaurateurs last summer, the
Biondos. Having dined at Biondo's Ristorante in
Holmes Beach again last week, in season, I was re-


minded how pleased people were to learn of this al-
ternative to the Island dining scene when it opened
last June.
And we weren't disappointed with our "season"
service. Our Brooklyn-import waiter Anthony and
owners Pietro and Susie Biondo, formerly Washing-
ton, D.C., restaurateurs, were every bit as attentive
as last summer.
The transformation from Turtles to Italian fine
dining is a success. Only the bar remains the same
- now a dining counter with a peek through etched
glass at the chef at work.
The Biondos are gracious hosts, having learned
quickly their patrons' desires and whims. With var-
ied menu choices of veal, fresh seafood and classic.
"pasta-bilities" including a delicate agnolotti, you
won't be disappointed.
I'd heard this restaurant described as "the Italian
Bistro" among friends and gourmands. Any likeness
to Beach Bistro must be considered a serious com-
pliment and we weren't disappointed.
And for the many wait-listed diners over
Valentine's Day, more than 100 or so at Longboat
Key's Euphemia Haye according to owner D'arcy
Arpke, you might be surprised at how accommodat-
ing Biondo's can be.
It's like the old Manatee County slogan (the one
that made our Island so popular that we have wait-
ing lists), it's "our little secret."
Sure, there's no beach view but the cuisine is a
great alternative to the perennial favorites for fine

Continental dining.
Italians say "Mangia," meaning eat.
We say "Biondo." Eat very well.

Of two worlds
Speaking of Turtles, the place where Islanders
used to go to enjoy rowdy Sunday afternoons and
classic rock with the Island band Hammerheads ...
You can catch remnants of that band at the Dry Dock
this weekend. Razin' Cane will play Feb. 27 and 28,
starting 9-ish (read that 10 p.m. to be sure).
The new band features Bob McGlynn on bass
and Chris Corrigan on drums and the music isn't
what it used to be according to McGlynn. The Ham-
merheads did a lot of Allman Bros. covers and he
says the music now is "harder."
What will Dry Dock do when Publix moves in
and Benderson Development expands the shopping
center north of Crowder Bros. Hardware? Move, we
hope. But, where?
Bands gotta have a place to play and people need
music to survive and the opportunities to hear
good, live rock and roll music are dwindling here.
