Cel tower suit onstteet path.I~- ~5~


By Pat Copeland
Islander Reporter
Holmes Beach Mayor Bob VanWagoner agreed
Friday in federal court to sign the permit to allow GTE
Mobilnet to construct a cellular phone tower at Smith
Realtors, 5904 Marina Drive.
"This takes care of a large part of the lawsuit,"
VanWagoner said. "Anything having to do with getting
the tower construction moving is wiped out. I don't
know what the next step will be in court. The portions
of the lawsuit concerning damages, attorneys' fees and
punitive damages against me have not been addressed."
GTE and Smith sued the city, VanWagoner and the
city's two building officials in October because of
VanWagoner's refusal to sign GTE's site plan for a
cellular phone tower. The tower's construction was


approved by the commission in August.
Following approval, resident Joan Perry spear-
headed a petition committee to initiate referendum pro-
ceedings. The referendum petition was deemed suffi-
cient by the city clerk in October.
According to the charter, the city commission had
30 days to repeal its action. If not, the question would
go to voters in a regular or special election 60 to 90
days after the petition was determined sufficient. If the
majority of the voters opposed it, the ordinance would
be repealed.
When the 30 days was up in November, Perry and
other residents demanded that the commission com-
plete the process as required by the charter. However,
commissioners tabled the petition issue after it was
added to GTE's federal lawsuit.

Fee for police services at Holmes

Beach field should be waived


By Pat Copeland
Islander Reporter
The Anna Maria Island Privateers are on the verge
of mutiny.
Holmes Beach City regulations forced them to
move their float to Cortez last year. Now, a city bill will
force them to reduce donations for kids' programs.
Holmes Beach Mayor Bob VanWagoner said March
20 he will recommend that a fee for police services be
waived for the Privateers' flea markets held this year.
Mayor Carol Whitmore followed through with that
action, rescinding fees for the Privateers and the Anna
Maria Art League retroactively to the first of the year.
"It's our mistake," VanWagoner said. "We didn't
promptly collect fees in the past. We should forgive it
and say from here on out they must pay. We want to be
equitable about this."
The issue arose when the Privateers received a $210
bill for police services for two thieves' markets, held on
the city field in January and February. A third flea mar-
ket, March 21, promised to increase the debt.


According to a 1989 city ordinance, the police depart-
ment is authorized to provide police services for additional
crowd control, security and traffic assistance for special
events. A request for the services must be submitted two
weeks in advance and approved by the chief.
However, Romine said several years ago he made
the decision that all large events must have at least one
officer for special services. Officers are paid $15 an
hour for the service.
"A couple of years ago, there was an art festival and
the organizers had not requested a police officer," Romine
explained. "I had to pull a duty officer off patrol to over-
see parking and traffic control. When it began taking away
from our officers' normal duties, I made the decision to
require an officer at every large event."
Romine said he looks at other options before using
a paid officer. He uses reserve officers when available,
because they are volunteers and are not paid. Another
option is to use a duty officer if there are multiple of-
ficers on duty.

Commissioners also declined to rule on the issue
of whether the referendum process applies to resolu-
tions. The tower construction was approved by resolu-
tion and the referendum process refers only to ordi-
nances.
In December, residents again demanded that the
commission act on the petition. It killed the issue by
voting that the referendum process does not pertain to
resolutions.
In January Perry filed a mandamus action asking
the court to order the commission to follow the refer-
endum procedure.
A circuit court judge then ordered the commission
to reconsider the resolution or show just cause for not

Ownership


disputed in


Bradenton


Beach
By Paul Roat
The question of who owns what has again surfaced
in Bradenton Beach.
Dr. Fred Bartizal, owner of the Bridge Tender Inn
on Bridge Street, contends that a portion of the board-
walk leading to the Bradenton Beach City Pier is built
on his property.
Rather than force the city to remove the structure,
Bartizal through his attorney, John Harllee pro-
poses the city give him an area of city land south and
east of the restaurant, a 300-square-foot area that can
accommodate 12 parked cars.
Bartizal also wants clear title to two of the docks
jutting into Anna Maria Sound near his restaurant.
Building Official Bill Sanders reviewed the docu-
ments provided to the city by Harllee to bolster
Bartizal's claim. "There is no encroachment by the city
boardwalk on Bartizal property," Sanders concluded.
Even if Bartizal's survey is correct and there is city
encroachment onto his land, Sanders said, "a small tri-
angle of bench area is encroaching on Bartizal prop-
erty. If this is indeed the case, I would recommend re-
moval of that area of the boardwalk."
As to the land swap offer, Sanders called the pro-
posal "totally ridiculous. Even assuming the Bartizal
survey to be correct, the city would be trading maybe
300 square feet of prime parking area for one-third of
a boardwalk bench area maybe 30 square feet. I do
not feel the taxpayers would appreciate such a trade and

Privateers field rental fee
for police questioned
CONTINUED FROM PAGE 1
"But if I have to bring in an officer just for the
event, he should get reimbursed," Romine noted. "And
if you have an event that attracts twice as many people
as live in the city, how could you not expect to have
extra police?"
Another problem arose when the city learned of a
billing problem. Although organizations have been no-
tified of the requirement and cost of the service, they
have not been billed for it in the past 18 months.
The police department is supposed to issue the bill-
ing. Deputy Clerk Angela Sain said when she served as


police clerk, she did the billing. But when Sain trans-
ferred to the administrative department a year and a
half ago, it fell by the wayside.
"The police department thought city hall was do-
ing the billing and city hall thought the police depart-
ment was doing it," Romine noted. "When I found out
about the mistake, I resumed the billing this year, but
decided not to collect for any events prior to 1998."
Romine pointed out that every organization is no-
tified of the requirement when it applies for a tempo-
rary-use permit. According to the ordinance, non-profit
organizations may petition the city commission to
waive the fee.
The Privateers will apparently be billed for the
March 21 flea market awaiting a commission decision.

would rather the city simply remove the encroachment.
However, I do not believe the city has encroached on
Bartizal property with the boardwalk."
As to the docks, Sanders said they "appear to be in
violation of city codes and will probably require par-
tial or total removal to comply."
Commissioners agreed that City Attorney Alan
Prather and Sanders should meet with Bartizal's attorney
to attempt to negotiate some resolution to the matter.
This is not the first time that the city and Bartizal have
been at odds over the bayfront near the Bridge Tender Inn.
Last year, during construction of the boardwalk and clock
tower on the pier approach, Bartizal said he owned the
area where plans called for placement of the tower. Last-
minute revisions were made in the construction to relocate
the clock tower to its present-location on land that is clearly
within city ownership.

Tower suit may be settled

doing so. The city's attorney then filed a motion to
quash the judge's order, because the issue is pending
in federal court.
In February, GTE also filed a motion to quash, as
well as a motion to intervene in the hearing, stating the
company's right to build and operate a cellular tower
could be destroyed if the court granted Perry's request.
In a March 12 hearing, the judge granted GTE's
motion to intervene. At a March 19 hearing, "the judge
reserved his decision in order to determine whether he
had jurisdiction, because the matter is to go before the
federal court," VanWagoner said.
VanWagoner said he agreed to sign the permit Fri-
day because he was assured the judge was made aware
of the mandamus action. In the past, VanWagoner in-
sisted on assurances that the citizens "would have their
day in court" concerning the mandamus action.
He-said he returned to city hall Friday and wrote
memo to the building department releasing the permits.
He also added a letter to City Attorney Patricia Petruff
stating that because of the mandamus action, there is
some risk to GTE if it proceeds to construction.

Anna Maria to expand current city garage


By Andrew White
Islander Reporter
The City of Anna Maria has decided against con-
structing a new utilities building behind city hall.
The news comes as a relief to nearby residents who
opposed the project at a commission meeting last
month.
Plans for a new 2,100-square-foot structure caused
concern among neighboring residents who felt that it
would be an eyesore at the manicured grounds of city
hall. Citizens felt the noise, traffic and storage of ma-
terials were best suited elsewhere.


City officials contended that centralizing the work
force would increase productivity due to better super-
vision and management, but have since changed their
collective position and voted in favor of expanding the
current utility building on Pine Avenue.
"I was set on building it out here," said Commis-
sioner Robert McElheny, "but the more I look at it, the
more I think that the city would be best served by ex-
panding the current building."
McElheny explained that even if the city built the
new garage, most of the mechanical work would still
have been done at the Pine Avenue site.


Commissioner George McKay was in favor of
keeping utilities on Pine Avenue, but also expressed the
need for a new building to house equipment.
"We're adding on to a dinosaur, in aesthetics and
function," said McKay.
The commission voted three to one in favor of ex-
panding the current building, with McKay dissenting
and Commissioner Doug Wolfe absent.

Code board cites developer in Holmes Beach


By Pat Copeland
Islander Reporter
The Holmes Beach Code Enforcement Board
last week found Benderson Development Company
guilty of a site plan violation at the Anna Maria
Centre Shops on East Bay Drive.
The company was given until April 10 to come
into compliance or face a fine of $250 per day.
The issue revolves around two businesses,
Marco Polo Pizza and Marco Polo Ice Cream in the
shopping center. The center is owned by Benderson
and it is responsible for submitting the site plan.
A new site plan is required because the restau-
rant expanded into the adjacent store, creating the
need for more parking. In addition the restaurant's
ice cream operation moved to another storefront in
the same center, compounding parking problems.
Code Enforcement Officer Walter Wunderlich
said he received a complaint concerning the site plan
on Jan. 14. After going through the notification pro-
cess and receiving no site plan, Wunderlich sent the
matter to the code enforcement board.
The company submitted a site plan on March 6,
Wunderlich said. It was reviewed by the public
works department and sent to the city commission.
However, until it is reviewed and approved by the
city commission, the process is not complete and the
company is still in violation.
"The plan has now been submitted and is well on
its way to being approved," Benderson attorney Bob
Schermer told the board. "Benderson apologizes for
it coming to this. The company has been at odds with
the tenant regarding the use of the premises, but
that's an issue between Benderson and the tenant."
Chairman Charles Stealey asked if the tenant is
in compliance with the lease.
Schermer said according to the restaurant's use
clause, the business is to be an "ice cream parlor that
serves some pizza." The company objects to the ad-
dition of pool tables, video games and a bar.
"If you submit a site plan with tables for pizza
and it's being used for pool tables, how do you ex-
pect it to be approved?" Stealey asked.
City Attorney Patricia Petruff said that issue will
be considered by the commission when it reviews

the site plan.
"We're here today because the owner did not file
a site plan in a timely manner," she noted. "They
have not fully complied because the commission has
not had its work session on the site plan and ap-
proved it, denied it or approved it with conditions."
Marco Polo's manager Jesse Mullen said the site
plan is incorrect because it shows restaurant tables
instead of pool tables and the city should not accept
it.
"All we care about is that it was submitted, not
what is on it," Stealey replied. "That's the
commission's job."
Board members determined that the site plan
was delinquent by 13 days.
"I don't think the 13 days warrants a fine,"
Schermer said. "There are mitigating circumstances.
We're trying to submit a plan that's appropriate."
Board member Joe Bracken asked if the board
could consider mitigating circumstances.
"Our charter says we should consider the facts
presented before us today," Stealey said. "In my


Manatee County Court Judge George Brown
last week continued a hearing on an injunction
filed by the City of Holmes Beach to close Marco
Polo Pizza.
The attorney for Marco Polo sought the con-
tinuance in order to prepare his case. The judge
rescheduled the hearing for April 1.
On March 9, the city filed an injunction
against the business in the Anna Maria Centre
Shops on East Bay Drive. The business has now
operated for more than three weeks without city
approval.
Public Works Supervisor Joe Duennes said
he needs a floor plan showing the expansion of
the business into the adjacent store and a site plan
application before the business can open. The site

opinion there is a violation because the site plan was
13 days late. The second part we have to consider is
how serious is'it and what do we do to insure com-
pliance?"
Board members said if the commission dis-
cussed the site plan at its next work session on
March 31, it could vote on the site plan on April 7.
Petruff said the board must give Benderson a
reasonable time to come into compliance.
The board should give the company some impe-
tus to resolve its differences with the tenant, Stealey
said.
Bracken made a motion to give Benderson until
April 10 to come into compliance, and to levy a fine
of $250 per day after that.
Stealey pointed out that $250 per day is the larg-
est fine the board can levy.
"This has been going on all year long and some-
body has to pay attention and be aware of the fact
that it's a serious matter," Bracken replied. "The city
can't be insulted like this on a continuing basis. It's
very important that there be teeth put in this."


plan must include both the pizza restaurant and
the restaurant's ice cream operation, which
moved to- another store in the same shopping
center.
The shopping center's owner, Benderson
Development Company, is responsible for pro-
viding the site plan. Benderson was cited by the
city's code enforcement board last week because,
although the site plan was submitted, it has not
been processed or approved by the city.
In addition to the site plan violation, the
complaint alleges that the electrical work, floor-
ing and a bar were installed without permits.
Because of the lack of permits and inspections by
the city and fire officials, these are considered
health, safety and welfare issues by the city.

THE ISLANDER BYSTANDER MARCH 25, 1998 N PAGE 5 i[


By Paul Roat
One last step will take place April 2 to modify the
rules on what.kind of land development may take place
in Bradenton Beach.
A final public hearing and expected adoption of the
city's land development code is scheduled at the next
city commission meeting. First reading and an initial
public hearing was held last week and drew no com-
ment from the public or city commissioners. The rule
changes have already been approved by the city's plan-
ning board.
The LDC is a state-mandated document that pro-
scribes the permitted uses of land in various parts of the
city through zoning and other methods. Amendments to
the LDC must be approved by the city and then endorsed
by the Florida Department of Community Affairs.
Probably the most controversial change is a section
regarding animals.
New language in the LDC defines "Animals, Do-
mestic," "Animals, Farm/Livestock/Poultry," "Ani-
mals, Exotic" and "Wildlife Rehabilitation Center."
The wording comes in the wake of an earlier con-
troversy regarding Wildlife Inc., an animal rehabilita-
tion center in the 2200 block of Avenue B. A neighbor
complained about what he called the "zoo-keeping fa-
cility" in March 1996.
The matter came before the city's Board of Adjust-
ment in November 1996, but was stalled in the face of
a letter from General Counsel James Antista of the
Florida Game and Freshwater Fish Commission, who
said that a state permit issued to Wildlife Inc. super-
seded city codes on.the matter.
Antista said at the time the city's laws pertaining
to what animals could or could not be kept in the city
was "overbroad, vague and should be struck down as
an encroachment of [Fish Commission] authority over
wildlife. It is not a zoning ordinance; it is a complete
prohibition of the possession of wildlife."
The change in the land development codes being
proposed recognizes Wildlife Inc. as an existing facil-
ity and-defines the organization as being facilityiy fori.


the temporary care of injured or sick exotic animals
with the intent to return such animals to their natural
habitat or appropriate zoological park. Such use may
also provide for the permanent boarding of not more
than 12 permanently impaired exotic animals."

No Holmes Beach chickens here
City Planner Bill Brisson, who drafted the sug-
- gested land development code language, has defined
domestic animals as customary household pets -
dogs, cats, birds and the like.
Farm animals are "horses, ponies and any animals
or fowl customarily raised or bred for food or product."
Exotic animals are those other than farm animals
that "normally live in a state of nature and are not or-
dinarily tame or domesticated."
And the final animal change in the LDC: "No farm
animals, livestock, poultry or exotic animals shall be
kept or maintained in any district in the city except as
otherwise specifically allowed in this code."

Right of way restrictions
addressed
City commissioners have wrestled for several
months with the problem of residents landscaping city
rights of way. On the one hand, private landscaping on
public land makes the city more attractive. On the other
hand, such plantings constitute a taking of public prop-
erty for private use and could cause a danger to motor-
ists or others who might ram into planters, landscape
lumber or large trees that are on city property.
Brisson proposed changing the land develop-
ment codes to allow greater flexibility to what may
be placed in city rights of way while protecting the
public interest. The new language would permit less
than one-foot-high shrubs in the first three feet of
city property adjoining private land, then calls for
building official approval of any other plants in the
rest of the right of way through a right of way use
permit.

Watercraft lease

runs out for

Anna Maria
By Andrew White
Islander Reporter
The City of Anna Maria had free use of a
personal watercraft for a year. Now, if they want
to keep it, the city has to pay.
Anna Maria had been participating in a year-
long loaner program with Fischetti's Watercraft
of Bradenton. The program allowed law enforce-
ment use of a Bombardier watercraft, which was
used to patrol along beaches and in Anna Maria
Sound.
The waterborne police vehicle not only aided
in enforcing beach regulations, like the no-alco-
hol ordinance, it also helped control the recent
surge of Jet-skis and other personal watercraft in
Anna Maria waters.
The loaner program ended March 25 and
now Fischetti's is giving the city the option of
buying the Bombardier for $6,498.65. That price
is 15 percent off the dealer's cost, according to a
memo from Fischetti.
Mayor Chuck Shumard appears to be ada-
mant about keeping the city's Bombardier.
"I think we should have some kind of water-
craft out there," said Shumard, "because it cer-
tainly helps to slow those Jet-skis down."

Other LDC changes
Other proposals in the land development code in-
clude the following:
Planning and Zoning Board meetings, as well as
Board of Adjustment meetings, would be publicly no-
ticed 10 days in advance. Current codes call for three.
days advance notice.
Dumpsters within the city would have to be
screened from public view.
The April 2 city commission meeting will begin at
7 p.m. in city hall.

No survey needed


to do a survey
To quote former President Reagan, "There they go
again."
There's yet another property dispute underway in
Bradenton Beach, this time focused on one little part of
one little corer of one of those charming lookouts on the
boardwalk leading to the Bradenton Beach City Pier.
The comer, which is about 5 by 6 feet in size, may -
or may not be, depending on which opinion you subscribe
to owned by Bridge Tender Inn's Dr. Fred Bartizal.
Bartizal wrote that unless the city gets rid of the encroach-
ment, he would file suit. "Ejectment" is the legal phrase.
You may remember that Bartizal and the city were at
loggerheads last year on the subject of the clock tower,
which city officials agreed would have indeed been on
Bartizal's property according to the original plan. The
drawings were changed and the clock tower was moved
appropriately.
You also may remember some controversy regarding
the placement of signs, landscape plants and materials in
city rights of way, with residents saying that what the city
calls its property is actually the resident's land.
What all of this brouhaha boils down to is something
city officials have talked about but not done anything
about for several years:
Survey the entire city to determine property lines.
Unfortunately, without a survey there is no way the
city can prove where public property ends and where pri-
vate property begins.
Such a survey would be expensive and yes, it should
have been done years ago.
Survey the city as a way to end these recurring prop-
erty disputes. Otherwise, it may ultimately be decided by
the courts.

Jack's not back
Cartoonist Jack Egan and wife Judy are off on vaca-
tion again, the fifth time in as many years, to await the
birth of their fifth grandchild.
Jack's brilliance and sharp wit is only surpassed by his
keen extra-sensory perception having realized shortly

Help preserve Cortez landmark
I, my husband and our three sons have been resi-
dents of the Village of Cortez for 21 years now. A mere
drop in the bucket of time when one looks at the age
and history of this village. This is a village steeped in
history, the oldest commercial fishing village in
Florida, a community which still has a large number of
descendants from the original founding families.
Names such as Taylor, Guthrie, Lewis, Fulford, Adams
and Bell, to name a few, are still very much present
here today. Their children, grandchildren and, in many
cases, great-grandchildren still reside in this village
today. Now that, to me, is a testament to a love of heri-
tage, community and one's roots.
We as a community would like to see Manatee
County assist in getting back for this community some-
thing which we feel should never have been sold in the
first place, that being the old 1912 schoolhouse located
on 119th Street West in the village. This building holds
within its walls some of the fondest memories of the
people of this village. I'll bet few know that the build-
ing was a refuge for some of the village families dur-
ing the hurricane of 1921, with its winds gusting to 100
mph, a storm which devastated the entire village.
Even though it has seen a long and eventful life, the
structure is sound, the grounds are gorgeous and the
history held within is very much alive in this village.
We ask the county commission to give its full sup-
port to the application for Florida grant money to buy
back this wonderful property which it sold in the late
'70s or early '80s; I'm not sure of the date. And to also
help provide any additional funds needed over and
above those grant funds to assure the residents of
Cortez Village and the people of Manatee County get
back an important historical landmark. We believe it
would make a wonderful museum and meeting hall.
Please support our effort. Thank you.
Jane W. vonHahmann, Cortez

'Government working'
The Anna Maria City Commission should be com-
mended for denying AMI Holdings Inc.'s request for
an alley.vacation which was recommended by our
planning and zoning board.


On the surface, the issue appears fairly harmless.
AMI Holdings wanted the city to vacate the alley and
in turn AMI Holdings would give the city a utility ease-
ment. The primary difference between an alley and an
easement is as follows:
1. The city owns, maintains and is liable for an alley.
2. Property owners own, maintain and are liable for
an easement.
3. An alley is not on the tax rolls whereas an ease-
ment is on the tax rolls.
4. You cannot build on either an alley or an ease-
ment.
It was apparent from the large turnout and many ex-
cellent comments from the residents that this is a very
important issue to the citizens. Some of us feel alleys are
an effective means to limit the size of any single structure,
some are concerned about setting a precedent, some are
worried about giving away any city property and others
just want things left the way they are.
When all was said and done, the city commission
denied the request with a vote of 4 to 0. It was apparent
some city commissioners favored the alley vacation, but
despite their personal feelings they sided with the resi-
dents. That's the way government is supposed to work.
Dale Woodland, Anna Maria

THOSE WE E THE DAYS
Part 4, The Secret Life of Marion Colman
by June Alder


Lakeland in the 1910s was a pleasant place to grow up in.


RELIGION AND

ROMANCE


Marion Colman, granddaughter of-
Anna Maria Island pioneer George E.
Bean, spent her teen-age years in the
Lakeland area. Though somewhat of a
tomboy, she also- was developing a
spiritual side to her personality.
"She was destined to be single all
heri life, but had at least one romance
which lasted.through her high school
years. Why didn't she marry? Perhaps
her independent nature wasn 'tfittedfor
marriage. On the other hand, like other
young women of her generation, she felt
obligated to put the welfare of her ag-
ing parents ahead of her own desires.

By Marion Colman
In Lakeland we lived in the upstairs
apartment of a beautiful place in a grove
of oaks near a lake. The young lady of
the family who owned our apartment
was a singer and I could play the ac-
companiments to some of her easier
songs music was another thing my
mother taught me at home.
We often went with the family to
services at a little evangelistic colony
about a mile from our home. They
preached rather often on the second
coming of Christ. I hoped He wouldn't
come until I had finished my greatly
under-appreciated lessons in geography
and arithmetic.
Now, my father was not as
churchly inclined as my mother and I,
but he went to the meetings until one of
the preachers ran away with the wife of
one of the other preachers. This greatly
disturbed my father who was something
of a perfectionist.
He seldom went to church after that
until toward the end of his life when we
went to live on Anna Maria Island and
organized Roser Church. Father studied
the covenant and though he was unable
to attend because of illness, he was will-
ing to have his name go on the list as a
charter member.
As a teenager I was getting to the
point where I wanted to join a church.
This church we were visiting was a nice
little church but it belonged to a some-
what obscure denomination. I didn't
really want to ally myself with it and
my parents felt the same way. So the
next time we went North I joined the


Congregational Church in South Cov-
entry, my father's old home town. This
was a meaningful experience for me.
Several times we took boat trips to
Anna Maria Island where my uncle,
George W. Bean (mother's brother),
was building a big development from
the old Bean property. He laid out
streets and sidewalks, built houses and
put up a dock to acccommodate steam-
ers from Tampa.
We often went in our horse and
buggy to Winter Haven to spend the
day with friends. I had a little boyfriend
there who was just my age and we had
good times together.
One Fourth of July he had saved up
some money from his allowance and
bought a considerable quantity of fire-
works, mostly large firecrackers. We
popped them off gleefully, one at a
time. It is a wonder we didn't get
burned. Later that morning his father
brought us some more fireworks, not
knowing how many we already had set
off. We popped them off, too.
On another occasion we came
across to a barrel full of liquid some-
thing used against insect pests in the
orange trees. My chum asked me to
smell it. I thought it was just a bad smell
so I took a good whiff. But it was a
caustic substance that scalded my nose
and throat something awful. I kept run-
ning around and around the house
which eased the hurt somewhat, and
when it came time to go home I was
considerably better.
My boyfriend had a beautiful bi-
cycle. One day I was riding it down a
grassy slope leading to a lake. To avoid
a spill into the water I turned sharply to
the left into a grove of young orange
trees. It was sandy soil and of course I
fell off the bike. I wasn't hurt, though,
and neither was the bike, so I felt the
adventure turned out well after all.
We thought we would get married
when we were old enough. But we went
away to different colleges, made new
friends and acquired new interests, and
our friendship fell apart.

salutatorian

Island 'Officers of the Year' named


Bradenton Beach Officer Stanley House and Holmes
Beach Officer Robert W. Velardi were named Officers of
the Year for their departments.
Bradenton Beach Police Chief Jack Maloney said that
while on patrol in November, House overheard an indi-
vidual state he had committed a homicide in South Caro-
lina several years ago. House noted all the details in a re-
port to Detective Matt Duffy.

Cortez Native's Picnic
Saturday
The annual Cortez Native's Picnic will be held
Saturday at the Cortez Community Center, 4517
123rd St. Ct. W., Cortez but you don't have to be
a Cortez native to enjoy the fun.
Festivities get underway at 11 a.m. with a pre-
sentation of the new video, "Tales of Cortez." The
video will be shown again at 2,4 and 7 p.m.
Lunch will be available from the Seafood Gal-
ley on the dock at Star Fish House.
Dinner and the "official" picnic will begin at
4:30 at the community center. All are invited to bring
a dish to share and Blue Fulford will be cooking up
some of his "famous-recipe" mullet. Beverages will
be provided.
Old photos are requested by the historical soci-
ety, out-of-town friends are expected, and sales of
items will include books and T-shirts and copies
of the video. The Cortez Native's Picnic is free.


Because of the information and Duffy's investigation,
the Spartenburg Police Department sent an investigator to
Bradenton Beach. The investigation remains on-going and
the individual named in House's report is a suspect.
"Whether there is enough evidence to eventually ar-
rest the suspect, it was Officer House's professional atten-
tion to a conversation between people who had been
drinking, instead of ignoring it, that opened an inactive
murder case and could lead to justice being done,"
Maloney said.
Holmes Beach Police Chief Jay Romine cited
Velardi's "daily dedication to the citizens of Holmes
Beach" and noted that he is well respected by his peers and
has received numerous letters of commendation from the
public.
Romine said an incident on June 3, 1997, is an ex-
ample of Velardi's dedication to his profession.
Velardi responded to the City of Anna Maria to aid a
Manatee County sheriff s deputy with a subject who was
threatening suicide. They found the subject holding two
knives to his throat and stating that he wanted to die.
Velardi talked to the subject for over an hour and con-
vinced him not to take his life.
"Due to Officer Velardi's professional manner and
calming influence, a situation that could have turned tragic
in an instant was avoided," said a fellow officer.
Velardi has been employed by the department since
March 1986 and served on the police retirement board and
as the department's auxiliary liaison. He and his wife have
three daughters, and he serves as a'volunteer soccer coach.

Airboat owner focuses blame
Once upon a time, a bald eagle and his family could
be seen nearly every day by taking an airboat ride. We
would idle about half a mile from shore and look through
binoculars at the eagle's nest in Perico Shores. There,
perched in a tree just south of the Perico Bayou, was the
bald eagle.
Sometimes he would swoop down from his perch to
walk around the vacant lots, or we could see him swoop-
ing out over the waters doing a little fishing. Hundreds of
people who have taken my tours have gotten a glimpse of
the eagles through binoculars and were privileged to ad-
mire their beauty, never getting close enough to view them
with their naked eyes unless they came flying directly over
us.
And it is not all over. We still see them as they soar
majestically over the water, sometimes swooping down to
find a meal. Sometimes they are just standing on the oys-
ter beds,.waiting for an unsuspecting meal to swim by.
Other times we see them chasing the osprey and other
birds through the sky. Fortunately, these eagles are not
captives, allowing only a select group of people the oppor-
tunity to admire their beauty and marvel at their grace.
I believe a key word in the above paragraph is "va-
cant" lots. Take a'ride through this new beautiful devel-
opment and see all of the new homes that have been con-
structed during the past few months. See the earth mov-
ers, bulldozers, and the many dirt lots that have yet to be
developed.
I refuse to sit back and be slandered by Mr. Rumph
in a letter published March 18. One has only to think about
the weather we've been having for the past six months to
know that I have not been running every day creating all
of the havoc he has accused me of.
I have specifically tailored my tours to be environ-
mentally sensitive and informational. I have had Florida
tourism representatives, Audubon Society members, na-
ture writers, local environmentalists, and yes, even resi-
dents of Perico Shores ride with me.
No one has ever hinted to me that I am harming the
environment, let alone killing eagles. It is hard enough
starting a business from scratch, devoting endless hours
and considerable financial resources to trying to make it


work. I don't deserve to be slandered in the newspaper by
someone, who if he were honest with himself, could look
around his neighborhood and take some of the credit for
that which he accuses me of.
Richard F. Cremaschi, president,
Manatee Airboat Tours Inc.

Nature and fishers friendly not!
As a native Floridian, Island resident and backwa-
ter fisherman for more than 35 years, I've witnessed
many things that have hampered my enjoyment of fish-
ing the backwaters of Manatee and Sarasota counties:
sewage spills, disrespectful boaters and even a small oil
spill or two, over-development of our coastlines.
But none of these things, in my opinion, can match
what one man and his airboat have done to backwater
fishing. From Palma Sola Bay to Seven Pities in Tampa
Bay, this man has been allowed to run the shoreline,
running over fishing lines, driving off fish, birds and
fishermen with a noise comparable to the runway
sound at Tampa International Airport.
Now he calls his tours nature friendly and mana-
tee friendly. Then why do birds, fish and people all
leave when he and his deafening machine come down
the shoreline? I have signaled to him many times to
back off or go around when I've had game fish going
off in a particular hole along these shorelines, only to
have him give me the ol' one-finger salute, rev the
engine even louder and come right on through.
This man and his boat don't care about the genera-
tions of people who have fished and enjoyed the peace
and quiet of the backwaters of Manatee County. Air-
boats have ruined the Florida Everglades and if this guy
is allowed to continue there will be more just like him.
So I'm urging anyone who has had a problem with
this menace to nature and backwater fishing to call your
county commissioners, local senators and congress-
men, and report all violations of any laws and public
safety to the proper authorities. This person obviously
doesn't care about us as fishermen, so let's make him
leave instead of us and the native wildlife. Thank you.
Put in your ear plugs and try to have a nice day!
Dan Lease, Anna Maria


In response to bald eagle
Being the avid fisherman that I am, I often fish Perico
Bayou. Recently I did just that. I was wade fishing and
looking up in the sky, flying over the bayou was, you
guessed it, a bald eagle. I have seen an eagle almost ev-
ery time I've gone fishing in that bayou. And I've seen
them further south around the Sister Key area.
As Mr. Rumph pointed out in his opinion letter on
March 18, he seems to think that the eagles have aban-
doned the area. Not true. I'm no expert on eagles, but they
are birds of prey, which includes diving for fish, just like
ospreys, but not in the same manner.
Also, what I got from his letter is that there is no nest
in the area. This can mean only one thing they are nest-
ing further inland, which they do in tall trees, sturdy
enough to hold their massive nests.
I feel this is another attempt to give that poor man in
the airboat, who is only trying to make a living, a hard-
time, albeit it might be annoying to some. And yes, on the
day that I was fishing, the airboat did come through the
bayou.
The operator slowed down his engine to idle speed
and was not loud at all compared to the noise he makes at
full speed. And he didn't come back up to full speed in-
til he reached Palma Sola Bay, past Flamingo Key.
I've lived on Anna Maria Island for 33 years and have
always seen eagles, ospreys and other various birds of
prey, and it's not going to be noise that scares them away.
Jon Huffman, Holmes Beach

Taxes, waters rise
The citizens of Holmes Beach can rest assured as they
float by the new city hall that it is paid for, and the 500
residents east of Flotilla Drive can watch a soccer game
while trying to find a safer, dry ingress and egress.
.Oh, and there is no necessity to develop a retention
pond for a new 58th Street. We already have one called
Holmes Boulevard.
Well, my taxes and the flood water both went up on
my property. Guess I can't complain, the city will have a
new city hall. Bon Voyage.

AN OPEN LETTER TO HOLMES BEACH VOTERS
To those who supported my candidacy in the recent City election, I feel
profound respect and with all my heart I thank you.
Our team worked hard and we tried to explain issues which are
critical to our City's future. Rest assured that your concerns with fiscal matters,
with high flood insurance rates, and with zoning issues are still there for the
Commissioners to work on.
I encourage each voter to get involved in the process of self
government. Perhaps you could attend one or more Commission meetings'.
Perhaps you could adopt-a-block. Perhaps you could volunteer to serve on a
*Board or a Committee.
Good Cities don't just happen they are the sum total of all who live there
developing a sense of pride and involvement. Join with me and
several hundred others so that "together we can make a difference."
I wish the newly elected officials well and pledge my support to any of their
efforts to make this a beautiful, special place in which to live.
Best Wishes,

'Carnival of Culture' celebration

downtown this weekend


Myriad events and activities to stimulate all five
senses in fun-lovers of all ages will flood Old Main
Street in downtown Bradenton this weekend.
"Artsfest '98: A Carnival of Culture" will be pre-
sented from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Saturday, March 28, and
from noon to 6 p.m. Sunday, March 29. All-day musi-
cal entertainment will also slide into a Saturday night
street dance from 6:30 to 9:30.
"Artsfest" is a fifth annual celebration presented by
the Manatee County Cultural Alliance (MCCA). For-
merly known as the "Phantom of the Arts" with a goal
of showcasing visual artists, the '98 celebration will be
a greatly expanded, family-oriented affair geared to
offering something for everyone in a celebration of
Manatee County's many cultural diversities.
Artist and arts advocate Joan Voyles of Anna
Maria, former MCCA president and event co-chairman
with Sue Diffatte, says the original festival concept has
been broadened to foster the involvement of the entire
community.
A multi-media arts and crafts show, an arts and
crafts marketplace, live artists demonstrations and dis-
plays throughout the interior and exterior of Old Main
Street storefronts and the entire waterfront area are just
a start, says Voyles.
There will be children's hands-on art activities, the
always popular mural painting for all ages, a wide as-
sortment of foods and beverages, strolling clowns and
mimes, a choo-choo train ride, children's fingerprint-
ing, a classic car exhibit, fishing and golf instruction,
poetry readings, martial arts and yoga demonstrations,
tours of the new City Centre and many more "street
surprises."
On Saturday, one-hour boat rides on Miss Cortez
with hot jazz provided by Robin Wetterau's Yellow
Dogs will depart on the hour from noon to 4 p.m. from
the City Pier at the foot of Old Main Street. Hot dogs,
snacks and beverages will be available on board. Tick-
ets will be $5 for adults and $3 for students with ID.


Children 12 years and under accompanied by an adult
will ride free.

Entertainment for all stages
Four separate stages will be erected to provide
continuous live performances and educational presen-
tations.

Kangaroo Pub on Old Main. Saturday's schedule in-

String Band from 10 to 11:30 a.m.; the Fuego Fla-
menco Dancers from noon to 1 p.m.; gypsy dance by
Onna Zarina from 1 to 2 p.m.; and guitarist and singer

Cutaways will heat up.the stage with their Florida blues
from 4 to 6:30 p.m., warming up Old Main for the Rob
Satori Trio who will handle the street dance sounds.
On Sunday, the Peace River Gospel Group will
perform from 12:30 to 1:30 p.m., followed by the
Gumbo Boogie Band from 2 to 4 and Tropical Steel

The Island Poet
The calendar says it's spring or else we'd never know,
For we don't have to walk in the slush because we had no snow.
Some folks plant their gardens, while other paint their boats,
That already has on so much paint you wonder how it floats.
And the cardinal proclaims his domain as he sings from the highest tree,
And the perennials break out in bloom for all the world to see.
But the surest sign of spring, and who could ask for more,
Is when the gals wear their bikinis in the corner drug store.

THE ISLANDER BYSTANDER 0 MARCH 25, 1998 0 PAGE 17 []


Say, 'Ciao'
We exalted the restaurant Biondo recently, finish-
ing by saying: "Italians say 'Mangia,' meaning eat. We
say 'Biondo.' Eat very well."
Now we must say "Ciao." A rivederci. Adios.
Sayonara. In rock 'n' roll terms, "Another one bites the
dust."
Hardened, crusted and seasoned we may be. But
one can soon become insensitive to the comings and
goings of business in a seasonal environment.
The Biondos, Pietro and Susie, are gone-o.
"Bandidos," affectionately to some, now to their em-
ployees who worked hard to help them make a go
of their investment and were duped out of several
week's pay.
One of Susie's last comments, lamenting the loss
of their investment, was that the employees only lost a
couple of weeks wages.


Her perspective may be different than the employ-
ees though. The Biondos took a risk and conceiv-
ably they risked what they could afford.
The employees took a job, and now in the midst of
seasonowith just weeks remaining to store up income
needed to supplement leaner summer months, they are
jobless.
The Biondos actually filed for bankruptcy protec-
tion on March 19, two days before they told employ-
ees and others that Pietro's mother had died, necessi-
tating a short closure of the restaurant for a trip to Italy.
The "family emergency" sign on the door and the tele-
phone answering machine message was their shame-
less goodbye.
It's easy to see their mistakes from the outside
looking in. The Biondos naively bought an ongoing
operation with very little in the way of steady clientele.
Operated as.Toscono before them, it was shortlived and
unfulfilling.
It reopened in July, struggled to build a clientele
and became overextended long before any hope to re-
coup the loss during season. The Biondos bemoaned
their situation starting in November to me personally,
not understanding what to expect here.
As operators of busy Washington, D.C., area estab-
lishments, I'm certain they were sophisticated and


savvy. But they came to Anna Maria Island undercapi-
talized and naive.
Most unfortunately, they blamed our "unsophisti-
cated" community for their shortcomings.
"People here don't appreciate our type of dining,"
was a comment I heard more than once from Susie
Biondo.
But when Susie called me on Sunday, March 22,
three days after they alleged to reopen, she didn't
apologize for the ruse about Pietro's mother.
She simply said they were "done." Moving north
probably. And she asked me not to write about them -
and if I must, to be kind.
Kindly, I say that for diners like myself, who sin-
cerely enjoyed their offering of fine dining, it is indeed,
done. And to be missed.
If there's a lesson to be learned, maybe it is that
you have to have more than good food to survive in
the restaurant business and in life.
If you need an example, ask Sean Murphy what his
involvement in the community his love for Anna
Maria Island means to his business, Beach Bistro.
And, beware of people who look down on you,
even to serve you a fine meal. You must be able to look
up at them to enjoy it.
And Confuscious didn't say that, I did.

Island Baseball

The week
that was .
By Kevin P. Cassidy

Tip nips Bob Boast Dodge
Tip of the Island squeaked past Bob Boast Dodge by
a score of 4-3 behind a stellar pitching effort by Taylor
Manning and some heads up base running by Joey Mattay
and Manning.
Bob Boast Dodge took an early 2-0 lead over Man-
ning and the Tip when Mario Torres ripped a hard shot
down the third-base line that handcuffed Lorenzo Rivera,
allowing Torres to reach first safely.
After Brian DeBellevue grounded out, Cory
Schaffer hit a slow roller towards third base that
Rivera charged, fielded and threw into right field,
allowing both Torres and Schaffer to score. Manning
settled down to escape without further damage by
inducing Dustin Cole to ground out, and striking out
Michael Mijares, to end the inning.
The bottom of the first started out with Torres strik-
ing out Andrew Prudente, bringing up Mattay, who re-
sponded with a grounder up the middle. Mijares showed
good range from his second-base position to field the ball,
but Mattay was safe at first.
Courtney Taylor followed with a pop up to Mijares
at second, bringing up Manning with two outs. After
Mattay stole second, Manning hit a shot to right center that
glanced off the center fielder's glove, allowing Mattay to
scoie and sending Manning to third.
Peter Dowling grounded out to the first baseman,
ending the inning with Bob Boast Dodge clinging to a 2-
1 lead.
Billy Malfese led off the top of-the second by teach-
ing base on a pop up between short and second that
dropped in between Mattay and Taylor. B.J. Keim fol-
lowed with a grounder that Taylor scooped up and fired
to Mattay covering second to force Malfese for the first
out.
Gorden Tarbeck walked, putting runners on first and
second, and bringing DeBellevue up to bat. It looked like


-t


DeBellevue came through, hitting a short fly ball into the
outfield behind second base but Taylor went back and
made the catch, holding the runners with two outs and
Torres at bat.
Torres hit a pop fly just past second base and again
Taylor ventured over to make the catch and deny Bob
Boast Dodge.
Torres easily retired Tip of the Island batters in the
bottom of the inning, inducing Brian Kolesa to pop to first,
and striking out Dominic Termini and Prudente between
walks to Adam Bouziane and Rivera.
Manning was equally impressive in the top of the
third as he sandwiched a double by Brian Faasse be-
tween strikeouts of Schaffer, Cole and Kane-Hartnet to


Week's highlight: On March 17 Bobby Cooper
pitched the first no-hitter of the season for
Haley's Motel. He shut down 21 Kiwanis batters,
striking out 11 and only walking five, helping
Haley's to a 17-2 victory.

Mattay opened the bottom of the fourth with a single
that he quickly turned into a triple when the right fielder
let it get past him. A pop up by Taylor was followed by a
Texas-league double by Manning, scoring Mattay and
knotting the score at 2-2.
Torres ended the rally by inducing Dowling to pop to
third and striking out Kolesa.
Manning kept Bob Boast Dodge scoreless in the top
of the fourth, only allowing a single by Tarbeck, while
Torres did the same thing in the bottom half of the inning
thanks to a nifty double play by Faasse.

SPORTS, FROM PAGE 22
After a walk to Bouziane, Luther Sasser ripped a line
drive down the first-base line that Faasse speared to nab
Bouziane off first. Kyle Dale then struck out for the final
out of the inning.
Torres tried to take things into his own hands in the
top of the fifth when he led off with a double to left-cen-
ter, but got thrown out when Schaffer tried to advance him
to third with a sacrifice bunt.
With Schaffer safe on the fielder's choice and a walk
to Faasse, the stage was set for Dustin Cole, who re-
sponded with an RBI double to give Bob Boast Dodge a
3-2 lead.
Faasse advanced to third on the play but was caught
napping by an alert Manning, who applied the tag for the
second out, while Matt Torai struck out for the final out
of the inning.
Mattay led off Tip's half of the inning with a
single to center and was advanced to second on a
Taylor sacrifice bunt. This brought up Manning,
who came through with a high chopper to the short-
stop. Mattay took off from second and never stopped
-just beating the throw from Faasse, who fell to the
ground trying to field the throw from Malfese, who
was rushing to nab Manning.
Manning alertly moved to second on the throw
home, bringing up Dowling. Dowling struck out but
Manning moved to third on a passed ball to bring up
Kolesa. With Manning dancing off of the third-base
bag, the ball got past Cole behind the plate and Man-
ning raced home with the winning run. Manning re-
tired the side in the top of the sixth to get the pitch-
ing win by a score of 4-3.
Leading the way for Tip was Mattay who went three
for three with three runs scored, and Manning who went
two for three with two RBIs and one run scored.
Torres and Faasse led Bob Boast Dodge with a single
and a double each, while Cole added an RBI double.

Haley's 17, Kiwanis 2
Bobby Cooper pitched five innings of no-hit ball
while striking out 11 to get the pitching win over Kiwanis


on Tuesday night, March 17. Bobby Gibbons took the loss
despite allowing only four hits on the evening.
Brandon Roberts paced Haley's at the plate, going
three for five with four RBIs and two runs scored, while
Cooper went two for four with three RBIs. Tyler Krauss,
Shawn Koerber, Chris Nelson and Blake Tyre each added
a single on the night.

Tip of the Island 18, AMFD 3
Peter Dowling turned in a workman-like effort on the
mound, pitching four innings and allowing only three hits


and three runs to get the win. Dowling also helped him-
self at the plate, garnering two hits and scoring four runs.
Taylor Manning backed Dowling up with two hits
including a home run, two RBIs and two runs scored.
Chase Parker, Katrina Lathrop and Anthony Rosa each
had a hit on the evening.

Counting critters; what is that in the water?!


By Bob Ardren
Outdoor Perspectives
Ever heard of Counting Crows? My youngsters tell
me they're a good rock 'n' roll band.
But here in Florida we're busy counting other
things. And sometimes, in fact most of the time, we're
not very sure just how good our counting really is. Take.
manatees, for example.
Every year the state conducts a manatee census,
usually during cold weather when the mermaid-like
critters bunch up around power plant outfalls and other
sources of warm water. Based on these counts there's
usually an estimate of around 2,300 manatees left in
Florida.
Sometimes the number goes up a little and some-
times it goes down. But it's a little hard to get excited
about numbers generated by folks counting heads in the
water.
So something new is being tried. A blimp. The
Florida Department of Environmental Protection is
paying Mote Marine Laboratory $45,334 to use a blimp
borrowed from Woods Hole Oceanographic Institute in
Massachusetts.
The 29-foot-long blimp, complete with two video
cameras, floats about 150 feet above the Homosassa
River and keeps watch for manatees. In this case it's to
determine if the manatees are being harassed.
Mote tried using the camera in Sarasota County
last year, but had trouble with picture quality, and ear-
lier this spring tried it again in Lee County, but couldn't
find any manatees there.
Now they've gone north, and so far they're find-
ing manatees and the only problems are that the wind
seems to blow the blimp around quite a bit.
So the search for better ways to help our environ-
ment and the critters living in it, continues.

Key Deer too
Speaking of censuses, researchers from Texas
A&M University are busy taking the first census of
Key Deer in the Florida Keys since 1968. Since the
deer are confined to a small area, mostly on Big Pine
Key, you'd think it would be easy to keep track of
them.

But not so. Frankly, I believe most officials don't
want to know just how badly these gentle little versions
of the Eastern White Tail are threatened by the rip-roar-
ing development on Big Pine Key.
Following the 1968 count, scientists said there
were 300 Key Deer on Big Pine, about as.many deer as
people. Now the people population has topped 5,000
and the number of deer left is what the study is all
about. So far they've tagged only 90 of them.
One deer number is certain, however more than
100 have been killed by cars in each of the two past
years. If you've never seen a Key Deer, it's worth a trip
to Big Pine.
And judging from the death rate, you might want
to make that trip in the near future and drive extra
carefully when you get there.

Here at home
Speaking of seeing rare and endangered species, I
got a tip on scrub jays and gopher tortoises from an
interesting source. My daughter-in-law just happened
to Comment to me last weekend that "Those scrub jays
must be rare because they're so brave."
Asked what she meant by that, the young lady ex-
plained that she's been spending some of her days off
at Oscar Scherer State Recreation Area just south of
Sarasota and is amazed by the number of scrub jays
she's seeing there. "They'll steal a whole picnic right
off the table if you let them," she explained.
Officially an endangered species, the jays (they
look a lot like the far more common blue jay without
the crest on the head) seemed to have found a good
home in the park. And oh yes, Mona also reports that

Storms threaten bay
The relentless string of winter storms, mostly
brought on by El Nino, have finally struck Sarasota
Bay in the worst way. Several million gallons of raw
sewage spilled into the bay last week when a sewer
main, overloaded by stormwater, broke in the northern
area of the City of Sarasota.
It took two days to finally get the flow stopped, and
meanwhile officials were busy posting "No Swim-
ming" signs all along the bayfront. It was a mess.
So despite that city's efforts of spending tens of
millions of dollars on water treatment equipment, ac-
cidents can still happen. On a much smaller level, sep-
tic tanks which still exist throughout the Sarasota area
are presently sitting in the now-raised water table and
health officials say the safe thing is to just stay out of
the water.
And by that they mean any water, except perhaps
the Gulf beaches. Sarasota is busy testing those beaches
these days because of last week's spill. So far they've
come up clean.
Here in Manatee County, we still don't test our
beach waters.
So the best-laid and well-intentioned plans are still
no match for Mother Nature when things take a turn for
the worst. And while it's been an annoying winter,
what with all the storms, it's still a long, long way from
how bad it could get.
See you next week.

White bait means spring is nearly sprung


By Capt. Mike Heistand
There have been some scattered reports of white
bait sightings, a sign that spring is on its way and fish-
ing is going to get even better. In the backwater, reports
continue of good-sized redfish, trout and some snook,
although the Anna Maria City Pier anglers landed 23
linesiders last Saturday to set some sort of a record.
Offshore, grouper, snapper and a few cobia are being
brought to the docks.
Anglers at the Rod and Reel Pier are reeling in
sheepshead, some 30-inch redfish and two-foot-long
sea trout.
Fishers at the Anna Maria City Pier had a rockin'
Saturday night 23 snook were landed, all of 'em
keepers, plus a half-dozen speckled trout. Other action
includes sheepshead and flounder.
Folks on the charter boats out of the Miss Cortez
Fishing Fleet are averaging 50 head of Key West
grunts on the four-hour trips. The six-hour trips aver-
aged 155 head of black sea bass and Key West grunts.
The nine-hour trips averaged 45 head of red grouper,
mangrove snapper and black grouper.
Annie's Bait & Tackle said that Capt. Zack on the
Dee Jay H said he's catching trout, redfish, sheepshead
and an occasional snook.
Capt. Dave Pinkham on the Legend said he's do-
ing very well with mangrove snapper, red and black
grouper all in about 80 feet of water in the Gulf.
Carl at Perico Island Bait & Tackle said wade
fishers are doing very good with snook. He added that
nice-sized redfish are starting to school.
Capt. Rick Gross said he's putting his charters
onto redfish, pompano and sheepshead.
Capt. Thom Smith at Anglers Repair said he fi-
nally spotted a small school of white bait in Terra Ceia
Bay last week, a sign of good fishing to come. He's
bringing in redfish and trout from the Skyway Bridge
artificial reef system.

Black grouper boated 'Old Florida' way
Sue Felker trolled up this 12-pound black grouper with Capt. Joe Webb aboard the charter boat "Old Florida."


On my boat Magic we're still getting into lots and lots
of sheepshead, enough redfish to keep my clients happy
and a few pompano when we can get on the beaches.
Capt. Tom Chaya said he's getting redfish from
the docks and pompano near the flats of Sarasota Bay.
Bill at Island Discount Tackle said watch for
white bait to start showing up any day now. He's hear-
ing good reports of redfish, sheepshead up to seven
pounds and mangrove snapper along the Intracoastal
Waterway. Offshore, action is slow due to bad weather.

snapper in about 60 feet of water offshore. He also
brought back a 40-inch cobia while out in the Gulf.
Capt. Steve Salgado on the Complete Angler said
he's been doing very well with reds and sheepshead.
Good luck and good fishing.
